Transferring prisoners to healing lodges to be restricted Goodale says

first_imgOTTAWA – Federal prisoners will have a harder time being transferred to Indigenous “healing lodges” if they’re serving long sentences, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said Wednesday.The move comes after public anger that Terri-Lynne McClintic, convicted of murdering eight-year-old Tori Stafford, was moved to a healing lodge in Saskatchewan from a traditional prison.McClintic was eight years into a life sentence for the abduction, rape and murder of the Ontario girl. Her first eligibility for parole won’t come until she’s served 25 years.Under new rules announced Wednesday, prisoners won’t be eligible for transfers to healing lodges without secured perimeters until they’re into the “preparation for release” phases of their sentences.The Correctional Service of Canada will also have to consider inmates’ behaviour and how close they are to being eligible for unescorted temporary absences from prison before transferring them.In addition, the deputy commissioner for women will be involved in decisions to ensure national standards are applied consistently and relevant factors are considered.The changes will apply to past and future cases.Healing lodges are meant to help with Indigenous inmates’ rehabilitation and to get them ready to return to their communities. Goodale said the government will continue to promote “their valuable role” in federal corrections.There is also a need for the Correctional Service “to increase the level of public awareness” about how it makes decisions, Goodale told reporters.“These are decisions that are not taken lightly or capriciously. They are based on evidence and sound principles, and there needs to be a higher level of understanding of that.”In addition, there must be more meaningful and useful communication with victims given the anguish they have suffered, he said.“They need to know that their perspective is being properly respected.”last_img read more

New Fish Creek Forest trails can now be developed

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C – With the completion of a wildlife study on the Fish Creek Forest trails, Council has given the go-ahead to develop the trail system based on the recommendations of the wildlife assessment prepared by Roy Northern Environmental Ltd.As the report concluded there would be minimal impact on local wildlife the development of new trails to replace the closed portion of the Silviculture trail at Fish Creek can now proceed.In February, Robin Langille, Director of Facilities and Grounds for the City of Fort St. John shared in his presentation to Council potential new trails to increase the length of the trail network and increase connectivity through the trails as the Silviculture trail was now closed. In the presentation an internal loop trail or the figure 8 trail was recognized as a potential solution to the trail system as Langille shares they found a trail that the footing of the trail has already had alignment and grading created, going on to share it has probably been used by people yet the ‘entranceway’ to the trail was not so noticeable and would require being opened up.Mayor Lori Ackerman addressed concerns with the new trail as it may have actually have been created by Wildlife. Ackerman shared she wanted to keep both wildlife and users of the trails separate from each other, to keep both safe by limiting opportunities to have surprise interactions.Ackerman went on to share the City needed to know in fact, if this is a game trail by involving a B.C. Conservation Officer or someone with Wildlife experience before the City staff proceeds with implementing the new trail system.To view the Report; CLICK HERElast_img read more

Morocco Helped USA, Denmark to Thwart Terrorist Attacks

Rabat –  In addition to France and Spain, Morocco has helped many other countries to thwart terrorist attacks, including the United States and Denmark, Director of the Central Bureau of Judicial Investigation (BCIJ), Abdelhak Khiame, said according to Maghreb Press (MAP).“Thanks to the efforts of our teams, several planned attacks have been foiled in the world. Besides France, we have also provided intelligence to Italy, the Netherlands, Denmark and even outside Europe, the United States”, Khiame said in an interview published Friday by the French-speaking weekly “Maroc Hebdo “.BCIJ Director recalled the valuable cooperation between Moroccan and French services and their Spanish counterparts, which has led to the arrest of the alleged mastermind of the terrorist attacks of 13 November in Paris, as well as the dismantling of terrorist cells in the cities of Nador and Sebta. In contrast, he deemed “poor” or “non-existent” cooperation in the Maghreb, warning against the dangers that threaten the border region.“Algeria refuses to cooperate with us. Yet, the dangers that threaten the region are transboundary, and it is important to work together”, he said.In recent years, Morocco has emerged as prominent player in the fight against terrorism at the regional and global levels.Since it was hit by a terrorist attack perpetrated by Al Qaeda in May 2003, Morocco put in a place a holistic approach aimed at fighting terrorism. In addition to the security aspect, the Moroccan approach aims to address the root causes of terrorism through the promotion of the true Islamic values of tolerance and openness, the training of imams, as well as the launch of sustainable development initiatives that aim to lift large segments of the Moroccan population out of poverty.According to figures released by the BCIJ earlier this week, Morocco dismantled 25 terrorist cells in 2015 and four in 2016. The most dangerous terrorist cell so far was the one dismantled last week, which aimed at carrying terrorist attacks against high-ranking Moroccan personalities, as well as sensitive public venues. read more

Spanish Interior Minister: Morocco Decreased Flow of Migrants

Rabat – The Spanish interior minister, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, highlighted Morocco’s efforts to fight migrant smuggling networks on Wednesday, March 20.The efforts of the Moroccan authorities in this area “are leading to a decline in arrivals of migrants to the Spanish coasts,” the minister said in a meeting on migration in Malaga, southern Spain.According to a statement from the Spanish Ministry of the Interior, Grande-Marlaska explained that “coordination with the countries of origin and transit in the fight against these networks has led, since February, to a decline in migrant arrivals that is being confirmed during this month of March.” He underlined the need for increased cooperation with countries of origin and transit.Morocco, a transit country, has been asking the European Union for funding to combat irregular migration, arguing that it cannot act alone.Spain, as a gate to Europe, has also been collaborating with Morocco to control migration at their border. The EU gave both Spain and Morocco €70 million each in aid in October 2018, “mainly for the purchase of border control equipment,” according to Spanish news outlet El Pais.In total in 2018, the EU pledged €148 million to financially assist Morocco for border control and job creation to improve migrants’ living conditions.  The most recent financial aid Morocco received was €30 million, announced by Hungary. The package was approved at a summit between eastern European prime ministers and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in February.Last year, Morocco thwarted 88,761 irregular migration attempts according to government figures, up by 37 percent from the previous year’s statistics.From January 1 to December 18, 2018, Europe received 111,558 migrants across the Mediterranean, with Spanish ports receiving 50 percent of all migrants who entered European ports, according to the International Organization for Migration. Moroccans form 31 percent of the irregular migrants who arrived in Europe in 2018; 20 percent are from Guinea, and 16 percent from Mali. read more

General Assembly President warns against marginalization of UN

Only the United Nations has the breadth of membership, the experience and the presence on the ground to effectively represent the world’s people and their interests, General Assembly President Joseph Deiss said today, warning of the risk that the Organization could be overshadowed by other international groups.“The United Nations has unique legitimacy to play a central role,” Mr. Deiss said in an address to the annual opening of the Assembly’s high-level debate. “With its 192 Member States, our General Assembly is a near universal body and reflects the diversity of situations and interests at stake. It is there to promote the rights of every woman and man on our planet.”This year’s theme of the General Debate, held at UN Headquarters in New York, focuses on reaffirming the UN’s central role in global governance, and Mr. Deiss told the meeting that there was “a danger that the United Nations could be marginalized as other actors emerge on the international scene.”Critics charged that the UN was not effective or efficient enough, or suggested that taking action through a forum with more restricted membership might be easier, he said.“This much should be clear: the point is not deny the role of such entities as the Group of Twenty. The economic and financial crisis has highlighted the importance of a rapid and coordinated response.“However, there is a vital and pressing need to bridge the efforts of different actors. The mechanisms for communication, consultation and cooperation between those entities and other States must be improved. Only the United Nations and the General Assembly can do so.”Mr. Deiss said that for the UN to fulfil its role at the centre of global governance, it must be made stronger, more open and more inclusive.“A close connection must be established between States and the private sector, civil society and regional actors. We must listen to other key actors and interact with them outside this Assembly.”He added that it was also important to reform the UN, through revitalizing the General Assembly, reforming the Security Council and reviewing the Human Rights Council and the Peacebuilding Commission.In general, Mr. Deiss noted, the world’s most complex challenges will only be solved when there is “a global partnership” where all stakeholders can have a voice in key decisions.“Poverty, conflicts, global warming, the economic and financial crisis, migration, pandemics, terrorism, international crime and a whole range of other issues have consequences that cannot be managed at an individual level and that humankind can address only through common global strategies.” 23 September 2010Only the United Nations has the breadth of membership, the experience and the presence on the ground to effectively represent the world’s people and their interests, General Assembly President Joseph Deiss said today, warning of the risk that the Organization could be overshadowed by other international groups. read more

Marking 50 years of peacekeeping Annan says UN can meet challenges ahead

In a message on the anniversary released Saturday, Mr. Annan noted that the UN Emergency Force (UNEF) tasked with securing and supervising the cessation of hostilities – including a withdrawal of the armed forces of France, Israel and the United Kingdom from Egyptian territory – was “an extraordinary success.”He paid tribute to then-Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld and his staff for working “around the clock to establish this unprecedented mission as quickly as possible,” recalling that the first units landed in Ismailia on the Suez Canal within 10 days of the decision.By the end of the year, French and British forces had left the Suez Canal Zone, and Israeli forces completed their withdrawal just three months later. “The international community provided firm support, and troop contributing countries backed up their words with rapid, effective action,” Mr. Annan pointed out.“Sixty missions later, UN peacekeeping operations have become an indispensable weapon in the arsenal of the international community,” he declared.At the same time, he pointed out that peacekeeping “must accompany a peace process; it cannot substitute for one” and stressed that “for fragile peace to take root, comprehensive measures are needed to address security sector reform, disarmament, demobilization and reintegration.”The UN currently has 18 operations, a historic high of 93,000 personnel in the field, and a total that may reach 140,000 in 2007. “UN peacekeeping is stretched as never before. Yet we confront that challenge with informed optimism,” Mr. Annan said, citing the rapid deployment of thousands of reinforcements from the developed and developing world alike to the expanded UN Interim Force in Lebanon. This, like UNEF, demonstrated “that so long as peacekeeping has the political and practical support and commitment of the international community, as expressed through the main organs of the UN, anything is possible,” the Secretary-General said.“The task ahead will be demanding, but we will fulfil it.” read more

SpaceX launches first rocket since explosion in Florida

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket blasted off from California on Saturday and placed a constellation of satellites in orbit, marking the company’s first launch since a fireball engulfed a similar rocket on a Florida launch pad more than four months ago.The two-stage rocket lifted off from Vandenberg Air Force Base at 9:54 a.m. carrying a payload for Iridium Communications Inc., which is replacing its entire global network with 70 next-generation satellites.The satellites were deployed about an hour after launch.About nine minutes after the rocket blasted off, to cheers from the control room, its jettisoned first stage landed upright on a so-called droneship in the Pacific Ocean south of Vandenberg — part of Spacex’s effort to make boosters reusable.The company has succeeded six times previously with landings on a barge or ashore.A camera aboard the first stage gave viewers a you-are-there experience as it returned to Earth, flared landing rockets and made a perfect upright touchdown on the floating pad.The return to flight is an important step for SpaceX, billionaire Elon Musk’s California-based company that has about 70 launches in line, worth more than $10 billion. In addition to commercial launches, SpaceX ferries supplies to the International Space Station and is developing a capsule capable of carrying astronauts to the station.SpaceX officials say they identified all possible causes of the Sept. 1 accident during prelaunch testing at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, and took corrective action.The accident destroyed the rocket and its payload — a satellite that Facebook wanted to use to spread internet access in Africa — and grounded the Falcon 9 program as an investigation took place.SpaceX announced this month that investigators concluded the accident involved a failure of one of three helium tanks inside the rocket’s second-stage liquid oxygen tank.The investigation involved the Air Force, NASA, the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration, which issued a license for the launch.The September accident was the second time a Falcon 9 was destroyed. In June 2015, a Falcon loaded with space station supplies disintegrated shortly after liftoff. SpaceX determined that a support strut broke.The 10 satellites launched Saturday are part of McLean, Virginia-based Iridium’s project to replace its existing network of satellites that provide global voice and data communications.The program, called Iridium NEXT, was not only delayed by the SpaceX accident but again most recently as a powerful storm headed into California last weekend.Iridium plans six more Falcon 9 launches, each carrying 10 satellites, as part of a technology upgrade expected to be completed in 2018.SpaceX’s effort to recover Falcon first stages is intended to reduce costs by recycling a major piece of the launch system.The first stage contains tanks for liquid oxygen and kerosene as well as nine engines that power the rocket and payload into space, then separates 2 1/2 minutes into flight as the single-engine second stage ignites and continues on to place payloads in the proper orbit.The first Falcon booster to safely land back on Earth now stands outside the company’s headquarters. SpaceX launches first rocket since explosion in Florida Space-X’s Falcon 9 rocket successfully launches with 10 satellites into orbit for Iridium Communications Inc., at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., Saturday, Jan. 14, 2017. About nine minutes later, the first stage returned to Earth and landed successfully on a barge in the Pacific Ocean south of Vandenberg. The return to flight is an important step for SpaceX, a California-based company that has about 70 launches in line, worth more than $10 billion.

Madrids perfect run with Solari ends with 30 loss to Eibar

EIBAR, Spain — Santiago Solari’s first game as Real Madrid’s full-time coach was one to forget.After leading Madrid to four straight victories as interim manager, Solari saw his team lose 3-0 at Eibar in the Spanish league on Saturday.The loss — Madrid’s first-ever defeat against the Basque Country club — halted the team’s recovery from a series of poor results under former coach Julen Lopetegui, who was fired.Madrid is sixth in the standings after 13 games. It could have moved one point behind leader Barcelona ahead of its rival’s match at Atletico Madrid later Saturday.___More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/apf-Soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsThe Associated Press read more

Assassins Creed 3 save data being lost while downloading DLC

first_imgSome gamers have been reporting that Assassin’s Creed 3 game save data is being deleted after installing the DLC add-on The Hidden Secrets.The Hidden Secrets is the first DLC pack for AC3 and it’s already gotten off to a bad start. Xbox 360 gamers are reporting that parts of their player progress have now gone missing. Most importantly, it has deleted some players’ entire story mode progress, but leaves completed side missions untouched. It also resets gained money back to zero, and courier deliveries have to be completed again. However, the side effects vary from player to player.One user posted on the Ubisoft forums that instead of having their main story progress deleted, they lost all their side mission progress instead. It’s likely that their data was erased because they were playing the game while downloading the DLC.In fact, the Community Developer at Ubisoft has recommended players avoid loading your AC3 save while The Hidden Secrets DLC is downloading in the background as this is what seems to be causing peoples data to go missing. It’s only affecting a small number of players, most of which are on Xbox 360, but it’s better to be safe than sorry and take Ubisoft’s advice.Currently, the DLC is only available for Season Pass owners and it will be released for everyone on December 11. By then, Ubisoft will hopefully have fixed the issue, but affected gamers will be left waiting to see if it’s possible to get their lost progress back.More at Ubisoft, via Polygonlast_img read more

Talks go down to the wire

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras and his team continued their grueling talks with the troika over the weekend in a bid to finally hammer out an agreement on a 13.5-billion-euro austerity package ahead of a European Union leaders’ summit on Thursday. Apart from the contents of the painful new package, the two sides also have to agree on a set of so-called prior actions being demanded by the troika. These chiefly comprise structural reforms that have been pledged to foreign creditors but have yet to be implemented, such as the opening up of closed professions and the deregulation of energy and fuel markets. The prior actions also reportedly include an overhaul of the labor sector, including new regulations reducing by 30 percent the amount of compensation employers are obliged to give dismissed staff and the introduction of a six-day working week, as well as new rules for calculating the minimum wage. It is expected that the troika will insist on 9 billion euros in measures being implemented next year, as opposed to the 7.8 billion euros foreseen in the draft budget, changes that will need to be included in the final budget for 2013, expected to be submitted in Parliament in early November.According to sources, the troika will seek the signature not only of Stournaras and the coalition leaders but also of the governor of the Bank of Greece, Giorgos Provopoulos. Once Stournaras has the outlines of an agreement with the troika, this will be put to Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and his coalition partners, PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos and Democratic Left chief Fotis Kouvelis, for approval. The aim is for the PM to go to the EU summit on Thursday with some kind of deal to show his peers. On Saturday German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she believed Greece had make progress in implementing reforms, albeit less quickly than expected, and that the country should be given some slack. In her weekly podcast, Merkel said Greece’s progress had been slower than hoped for but added, “On this matter we should always give Greece another chance.” Her comments were interpreted as a shift by Germany toward showing more patience for Greece amid calls from International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde to give Athens two more years to meet targets. German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, who said last week no decisions should be taken before the troika issued its report on Greece, on Saturday rebuffed speculations about a rift with the IMF.

Abeille le soja OGM force les apiculteurs argentins à migrer loin des

first_imgAbeille : le soja OGM force les apiculteurs argentins à migrer loin des culturesEn raison de l’avancée des champs de soja transgénique en Argentine, les apiculteurs sont obligés de se déplacer. En effet, la fumigation des champs détruit tout et plus aucune fleur à butiner n’y pousse.De nombreux apiculteurs argentins sont contraints de migrer avec leurs ruches en raison de la progression constante des champs de soja transgénique. “La multiplication des cultures de soja a dispersé les apiculteurs vers les côtes et les montagnes”, raconte Fernando Hins, un ingénieur chimiste reconverti dans l’apiculture. “Ils nous ont mis dehors”, clame t-il. Comme l’explique la biologiste argentine Laura Gurini citée par l’AFP, “la transhumance [des ruches] a toujours existé. Mais aujourd’hui, elle est exacerbée par le soja”. En effet, “la fumigation des champs est si toxique que la flore ne pousse plus, ni le long des clôtures, ni sur les bas-côtés des routes”. Ainsi, les ruches qui produisaient autrefois de 70 à 80 kilos de miel donnent aujourd’hui à grand peine 25 kg. Sans surprise, ces déménagements forcés ont entraîné une chute de la production de miel en Argentine, qui représente le deuxième exportateur mondial de miel derrière la Chine. Une baisse confirmée par Laura Gurini, chercheur à l’Institut national technologique agronomique (INTA) qui explique que la production est passée de 120.000 tonnes en 2004 à 70.000 en 2012. 10% de l’Argentine recouvert de cultures à soja À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?En parallèle, la culture du soja est passée de 12 à 20 millions d’hectares au cours des dix dernières années et, aujourd’hui, 10% du territoire argentin sont recouverts de soja (ce qui, pour donner une idée, représente 50% du territoire français). En 2012, le miel a ainsi représenté 200 millions de dollars dans l’économie argentine alors que l’export du soja est passé de 7,5 à 25 milliards de dollars en dix ans, révèle l’OMC. Mais comme le souligne le président de la Chambre des apiculteurs, Roberto Imberti, “80 % des producteurs de miel ont moins de 200 ruches et ne peuvent pas vivre de l’apiculture”. Pour cette raison, il estime que le nombre d’apiculteurs argentins est passé de 30.000 à 24.000 au cours de la dernière décennie. Mais le soja qui gagne de plus en plus de terrain pourrait encore faire baisser les chiffres, constituant une menace de plus pour les abeilles déjà en danger.

Rey proposed to Kylo Ren at Star Wars Celebration Chicago

first_img 1 Comment Share your voice 2:04 This pair, who met online and have been together three years, made Reylo a reality at the convention’s Ahch-To photo display. Dressed as Rey and Kylo, they re-created an intimate moment by touching hands while cosplayer Phil portrayed Luke Skywalker. Then they diverged from the movie’s events as Liv made a “prop request,” which turned out to be a tiny box. When Robert opened it, he found a pair of rings and a note saying, “Robert, I love you, will you marry me?””I didn’t understand, and was super confused, because I’d never think she’d be the one to pop the question,” he told me via Facebook Messenger days later.”But when it clicked, I yelled out ‘Whaat?!?!’ and my head went into hyperdrive.” Star Wars Celebration Chicago cosplay The Kylo Ren/Rey romance became a cosplay reality at Star Wars Celebration Chicago last weekend. Lorraine Pipitone/Saber Guild Endor Rey basically said “hell no” to the prospect of romance with Kylo Ren at the end of The Last Jedi (and actress Daisy Ridley reinforced that), but I ran into a couple that made it a reality at Star Wars Celebration Chicago.Walking to the convention last Thursday, I chatted with a lovely Swedish pair, Liv and Robert. Our paths crossed again on the show floor, but I didn’t see them again all weekend.Turned out they had an experience that transcended The Rise of Skywalker revelations, The Mandalorian footage or the glimpse at The Clone Wars season 7. 41 Photos Now playing: Watch this:center_img 7 Photos Star Wars Celebration Chicago mural reveals the entire saga TV and Movies Tags Star Wars Episode 9: The Rise of Skywalker trailer tees… Turns out Liv quietly enlisted Phil and his wife Lorraine — both members of the Saber Guild Endor charity cosplay group — to help with her plot. She carried the rings with her each day, thinking of scenarios where she could pop the question, until she came across the Ahch-To display being run by Phil. “Handing over the rings an hour before the proposal was meant to take place, my knees were jelly and my heartbeat was beating a frantic, erratic rendition of the Cantina Theme,” she said. “Somehow I pulled this thing off without Robert suspecting a thing … and it’s all completely crazy to think about, but yeah, with a little help from friends, Reylo is canon now. The Force willed it so!”And what’s engraved on the rings? “I love you” and “I know,” appropriately enough. Star Warslast_img read more

Kiwi Browser update for Android introduces Chrome Extensions support

first_imgKiwi Browser update for Android introduces Chrome Extensions support by Martin Brinkmann on April 16, 2019 in Google Android – 18 commentsKiwi Browser, a mobile web browser for Android that is based on Chromium, introduced support for Chrome browser extensions in its latest update.Chromium is the source for many browsers on Android including Google Chrome, Brave, Opera, or the soon-to-be-released Vivaldi browser.Google never added extensions support to the mobile version of Chrome; a likely reason is that it is an effective option to reduce content blockers on Android devices. Android users have plenty of options when it comes to content blocking, e.g. by using Adguard or a DNS solution, but content blocking would probably be bigger if Chrome would support extensions.Previous Kiwi Browser versions came with different features that distinguished the browser from the majority of Chromium-based browsers. Kiwi Browser supports native ad blocking, a built-in dark theme, bottom address bar, and accessibility features.The latest update introduces support for Chrome extensions. The developer notes that all extensions that don’t rely on x86 code are supported by the browser. If you always wanted to run a Chromium browser with uBlock Origin installed on Android, that is your chance now as that extension and many others are supported now.To be fair, Kiwi Browser is not the first Android mobile browser that is based on Chromium that supports extensions. Yandex Browser, by Russian Internet giant Yandex, introduced support for Chrome extensions last year already.If you look beyond Chrome, Firefox supported extensions in its mobile browser for Android for a very long time.Kiwi Browser is available on Google Play but the latest version of the browser is also available on the project’s GitHub page. Since it takes a while before the new version reaches everyone on Google Play, you may want to download and install the mobile browser on GitHub instead as you can be certain that you are getting the latest release version. The release is signed.Installing Chrome extensions in KiwiYou need to prepare Kiwi Browser to support Chrome extensions; it is an easy two-step process:Load chrome://extensions in the Kiwi Browser address bar.Switch on Developer Mode.The easiest option when it comes to installing Chrome extensions in the mobile browser is to open the desktop version of the Chrome Web Store in Kiwi browser. Just use this link if you have troubles locating it.All that is left is to find extensions that you want to install. Tap on the install button (add to chrome) to start the installation process. Kiwi Browser displays a prompt that highlights the extension’s extra permissions, and if you accept it, installs the extension in the browser.Closing WordsSupport for extensions is certainly a strong argument for a mobile browser but not the only one; Firefox would have a much bigger market share if it would be one of the main factors when selecting mobile browsers.Now You: how important are extensions for you?

The Galan 3T XGO Edition offers the ability to conduct quick, comfortable and high-quality neuro imaging exams, and allows for faster sampling and higher-resolution images thanks to PURERF and Saturn technologies. This, combined with the ability to stack protocol sequences, results in quick neuro exams, enabling healthcare providers to produce higher resolution images for myriad neuro exams in under five minutes. The Galan 3T XGO Edition also offers Multiband SPEEDER technology, which allows for multiple slices to be acquired at the same time, reducing diffusion weighted imaging scan times by up to two times.Beyond its neuro capabilities, the Galan 3T XGO Edition also offers enhanced cardiac imaging capabilities, including T1 mapping that utilizes MOdified Look-Locker Inversion recovery (MOLLI) sequence and allows providers to acquire a more quantitative characterization of myocardial tissue within a single breath hold. Additionally, Phase Sensitive Inversion Recovery (PSIR) in the heart provides improved contrast in late-enhanced imaging and eliminates the need for inversion time (TI) calibration scan, allowing cardiac exams to be completed with fewer breath holds and greater patient comfort.For more information: www.medical.toshiba.com News | Stroke | August 16, 2019 Mobile Stroke Unit Gets Patients Quicker Treatment Than Traditional Ambulance Every second counts for stroke patients, as studies show they can lose up to 27 million brain cells per minute…. read more Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.

Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impa

first_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact 0 Comments   Share   Norv Turner, former head coach of the San Diego Chargers, Oakland Raiders and Washington Redskins – The 60-year-old Turner has been regarded as one of the top offensive minds in football for two decades. However, as a head coach, he’s left a little to be desired, compiling a 113-122-1 record in 15 seasons. After coaching the Chargers to three straight playoff appearances from 2007 to 2009, Turner posted a very pedestrian 24-24 record over the last three seasons which led to his dismissal in San Diego. After six seasons in the desert, the ax fell on head coach Ken Whisenhunt, the majority of his offensive staff and general manager Rod Graves Monday morning.The Cardinals became the first team in league history to start a season with a 4-0 record and end with a 5-11 mark.Whomever the franchise hires as the new GM will have a long and impressive list of candidates to choose from to replace the winningest coach in team history. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires McCoy has proven he can thrive with established star quarterbacks like Peyton Manning this season, or young, inexperienced signal callers like Tim Tebow, who under McCoy’s watch, led the Broncos to a division championship and a playoff win in 2011. In-house candidatesRay Horton, Defensive Coordinator, Arizona Cardinals – Horton has only two years of experience as a coordinator in the NFL, but has opened the eyes of many around that league in a short time. Most feel the Cardinals, fueled by Horton’s defensive scheme, would have been a playoff-caliber team with even an average NFL offense.Horton will be a popular target for interviews around the National Football League this offseason, as seven head coaching jobs have opened up.Former NFL head coachesJon Gruden, ESPN analyst and former head coach of the Oakland Raiders and Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Gruden’s name comes up often for coaching vacancies in both the pro and college ranks, but he claims he’s happy as an analyst opposite Mike Tirico on Monday Night Football.In 11 seasons as an NFL head coach, Gruden racked up a 95-81 record, five playoff trips and a Super Bowl title for the Bucs in 2002.Bill Cowher, CBS analyst and former head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers – Cowher has been out of coaching since 2006, but is a frequent target of coaching rumors. In 15 years at the helm of the Steelers, Cowher finished 149-90-1, guided ten teams to the playoffs, won two conference championships and a Super Bowl in 2005. NFL CoordinatorsTodd Haley, offensive coordinator of the Pittsburgh Steelers – Haley was part of Whisenhunt’s staff during the Cardinals’ improbable run to the Super Bowl in 2008, and nearly rejoined the team last offseason before landing in Pittsburgh. Haley spent two-plus seasons as the head coach in Kansas City, coaching the Chiefs to an AFC West title in 2010.He’s not the easiest guy in the world to get along with, but is reported to be held in high regard by the Bidwill family.Mike McCoy, offensive coordinator of the Denver Broncos – The 40-year old McCoy is one of, if not the, hottest commodity among coordinators in the NFL. He hasn’t been a head coach at any level, but has served as the O.C. in Denver since 2009.And besides Horton, McCoy’s name was the first to pop up in Cardinals-specific rumors Monday.Arizona and Chicago have asked for and received permission to interview Broncos OC Mike McCoy for their HC job. Will interview this weekend.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 31, 2012center_img Lovie Smith, former head coach of the Chicago Bears – Smith guided the Chicago Bears to a 10-win season in 2012, but they missed the playoffs for the fifth time in six years and team ownership wasn’t pleased.Smith had an 81-62 in Chicago and guided the Bears to a 13-win season and an NFC championship in 2006. Smith also has familiarity with the Valley, having served as the linebackers coach at Arizona State under Larry Marmie from 1988 to 1991.Tony Dungy, NBC analyst and former head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Indianapolis Colts – Dungy last coached in the NFL in 2008 with the Colts, and compiled a very impressive 139-69 record on NFL sidelines. In his 13 seasons as a head coach, he missed the playoffs only twice and suffered only losing season — 1996, his first season in Tampa Bay. While his name appears in rumors frequently, Dungy appears to be very content as a studio analyst for NBC, as he very succinctly stated on his Twitter feed last week.We lived in Kansas City 3 years and loved it. I love the Hunt family. But I will not be back in coaching, there or anywhere else.— Tony Dungy (@TonyDungy) December 27, 2012 Top Stories – / 8 Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Gus Bradley, defensive coordinator of the Seattle Seahawks – Bradley spent 16 seasons as a defensive assistant at small colleges before joining Monte Kiffin’s defensive staff with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2006. In 2009, he became the defensive coordinator with the Seahawks, where his unit ranked fourth in the league in total defense this season.College coachesChip Kelly, head coach at the University of Oregon – Kelly has been one of the most successful coaches in the country over the last four seasons, compiling a 45-7 record and guiding the Ducks to four straight BCS bowl games. He’s arguably the most coveted candidate for all NFL coaching candidates, but there is some question about whether Kelly’s offense will translate well to the pro game.Nick Saban, head coach at the University of Alabama – Saban has been long considered a coaching nomad; in fact his current six-year stay in Tuscaloosa is the longest of his coaching career. That fact has led to rampant speculation that he’ll try his hand at the NFL after a failed two-year experiment with the Miami Dolphins. His services will command a high salary — one probably not in line with the Cardinals’ budget. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelolast_img read more
