There is still no permanent shrine to the singer, after devotees campaigned  for a life-size bronze statue to be erected on Michael’s land outside the property, which had been backed by his record label, Sony, and local councillors keen to replace the soggy shrine with something more sightly.However, the family quietly decided not to erect a statue in the singer’s memory, because he was a private person and would consider such a gesture “embarrassing.” He said: “The desecration of a beautiful North London square by weepy morons.

However, this is what we feel we now need to do.”BBC presenter and Times restaurant critic Giles Coren, who lives nearby, tweeted his frustration about the park last year. read more

I was always confident – Chicharito

first_imgChicharito says the brace he scored in West Ham United’s 3-0 victory at Newcastle United on Saturday was down to confidence.After returning to West Ham’s starting XI for their Premier League game at St James Park, Chicharito scored a goal in each half to help Manuel Pellegrini’s side pick up valuable three points on the road.“I was always confident because I always know that I am doing well in training and I’ve been patient,” Chicharito told the club’s website.“I scored one goal against Burnley and I’ve done my best when I’ve come on in matches.“In this world, when you have the confidence and the manager gives you the opportunity, it’s more easy to perform like I did today and thankfully I was able to score twice.“Two [goals] is not bad! When you have those kind of chances, of course you want to be ruthless and get a third, but the most important thing in my mind was getting the next goal when the next chance came.“After the first goal, I knew the next chance was the most important. Then when I missed that, I knew the next would be most important. I did it very good and it was very good because 1-0 against Newcastle is difficult.“Then Felipe got his goal and he deserved that because he did well one-v-one, and it was a great goal. All my teammates did a very good job.“We are very happy because we came here to get the three points and we did it and the most important thing is scoring first.Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolVirgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“In this stadium, it’s very difficult with the support they have here, they keep pressing us so scoring first was very important for us.“We also were able to keep a clean sheet and score three, and we could have scored more – I had two more chances that I missed – so I think we did very well because we scored and created chances and got the clean sheet.“We have a very big squad and someone like myself, we’ve been waiting for our opportunities to show that we can start.“We have an opportunity to get three points at home now on Tuesday and hopefully, we can do that and start thinking about the weekend.”last_img read more

Issues at West Coast Ports Persist

first_imgSince July 2014 the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) and the Int’l Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) have operated without a contract, while trying to negotiate a new agreement, causing systematic labor slowdowns that have escalated to the point of shipment delays and a large backlog at west coast ports. This not only increases costs to exporters, but risks permanently damaging customer relations.Last week, the PMA held a press conference and announced a “last, best offer” and the ILWU issued a response.  A federal mediator joined the talks in January, and while negotiations have not ceased, comments and actions from both sides has increased concern that a strike or lockout is possible.  A labor dispute in 2002 resulted in West Coast ports shutting down for more than 10 days before President George W. Bush invoked the Taft-Hartley Act and the ports were reopened while mediators negotiated a deal.A shutdown of the west coast ports would have a tremendous impact on the U.S. economy. The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach together handle approximately 40 percent of the country’s containerized imports. A report commissioned by the National Association of Manufacturers and the National Retail Federation estimates the cost of a West Coast shutdown at nearly $2 billion a day.On Tuesday, Feb. 10, the Senate Subcommittee on Surface Transportation and Merchant Marine Infrastructure, Safety, and Security held a hearing titled “Keeping Goods Moving”.  Chairwoman Deb Fischer (R-NE) discussed the impact of the ongoing labor negotiations in her opening statement noting that “Members of Congress and the administration must pay close attention to these ongoing negotiations and the economic impact of service disruptions at our ports. This is particularly important as we face the potential for ports on both coasts to be negotiating simultaneously in 2018, which is when the current East Coast labor contract expires”.The witnesses at the hearing included Cargill, BNSF, Moffat and Nichol and the Coalition for America’s Gateways and Trade Corridors.  The Republican Senators in attendance (Fischer, Daines (R-MT), Thune (R-SD), Blunt (R-MO)) all mentioned the impact of the negotiations on constituents, and the need for resolution.  They also focused questions on the impact and how long it will take for the system to correct itself.The issue was also the subject of an exchange at a White House Press Briefing with White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Shultz. Shultz was asked whether the White House would be willing to employ Taft-Hartley to force negotiations forward and for the workers to go back to work. Shultz responded that officials at the White House and across the relative agencies are closely monitoring the situation and their belief is that both sides should be resolving this at the negotiating table.last_img read more

COPY LINKAD Loading …center_img In July 2017, Jet Airways had asked its junior pilots, who joined the brand in 2016, to take a 30 percent pay cut or leaveReutersTo tide over a shortage of pilots, budget carrier IndiGo has been trying to poach commanders from crisis-hit Jet Airways with compensation for overdue salaries. Jet Airways has not paid salaries to pilots, engineers and people in senior management for three months now due to mounting financial woes.IndiGo, in response to a query by Press Trust of India, stated that all job offers are in line with the airline’s current terms and conditions. “IndiGo is offering Jet Airways’ pilots job opportunities,” the agency quoted an IndiGo spokesperson. The low-cost carrier has been forced to cancel around 30 flights daily since February due to an acute shortage of pilots. The situation came to a nought due to aggressive expansion by the Gurugram-based airline, which currently has over 210 planes in its fleet.”We are not offering a signing bonus. We are offering compensation for overdue salaries,” the spokesperson said. Besides hiring pilots, IndiGo is also trying to fix the problem internally by upgrading a sufficient number of existing pilots.”Our pilot hiring programme always includes hiring from the market and Jet Airways is part of the external hiring programme,” IndiGo told PTI. The shortage of pilots is not unique to IndiGo, experienced pilots are in short supply as airlines add fresh capacity driven by rapidly rising passenger traffic.Airfares Inch Up IndiGoA dearth of commanders at IndiGo coupled with the grounding of Jet Airways several planes has already led to a sudden spike in airfares on key routes. Lessors have grounded around two-fifths of Jet Airway’s planes after the cash-strapped carrier failed to pay their dues. Severely hamstrung by a curtailed fleet, the Mumbai-based company has been cancelling around 200 flights daily.The aviation industry has been passing through a tough phase lately with most of the carriers reporting a loss in the past few quarters due to rising fuel costs, falling rupee and inability to pass on the costs to fliers due to cut-throat competition.The latest crisis to rock the industry is the grounding of Boeing 737 Max passenger jets by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation after two planes of the same model crashed in a span of five months. Spice Jet and Jet Airways are the only domestic carriers with the aircraft in their fleets. While Jet Airways’ five Boeing 737 Max jets were already grounded by lessors, Spice Jet will have to temporarily stop using 12 aeroplanes of the model in its fleet.The latest decision by the sector regulator came after a Nairobi-bound Boeing 737 Max operated by Ethiopian Airlines crashed minutes after take-off on Sunday, killing all 157 on board.last_img read more

8 killed in suicide attack on Pakistan church

first_imgTwo women were among the dead at a Methodist church in the restive southwestern city of Quetta in Balochistan province, said provincial Home Secretary Akbar Harifal.Several of the wounded were in serious condition, police added.Officials said security forces intercepted and shot one bomber outside but the second attacker managed to reach the church’s main door where he blew himself up.“Police were quick to react and stop the attackers from entering into the main hall,” provincial police chief Moazzam Jah told AFP.Balochistan provincial home minister Sarfraz Bugti said around 250 people normally attend the church on Sundays, but the congregation had swelled to around 400 because it was close to Christmas.“God forbid, if the terrorists had succeeded in their plans more than 400 precious lives would have been at stake,” tweeted the home minister.An AFP reporter at the scene saw shattered pews, shoes and broken musical instruments littered across the blood-smeared floor of the church.No group has claimed the attack.Christians make up an estimated 1.6 percent of Pakistan’s 200 million people and have long faced discrimination-sidelined into lowly paid jobs and sometimes the target of trumped-up blasphemy charges.Along with other religious minorities, the community has also been hit by Islamic militants over the years.In 2016 Lahore suffered one of Pakistan’s deadliest attacks during the Easter season-a suicide bomb in a park that killed more than 70 people including many children.The bombing was later claimed by the Jamaat ul Ahrar faction of the Pakistani Taliban.Police and troops have been battling Islamist and nationalist insurgencies in mineral-rich Balochistan for more than a decade.Balochistan, bordering Iran and Afghanistan, is the largest of the country’s four provinces but its roughly seven million inhabitants have long argued they do not get a fair share of its vast gas and mineral wealth.Efforts to promote peace and development have reduced the violence considerably in recent years.The push includes ongoing work on a mammoth Chinese infrastructure project-the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor-which will provide Beijing with a modern-day Silk Road to the Arabian Sea through Balochistan’s deep-sea port of Gwadar. Pakistani security personnel rescue an injured woman after suicide bombers attacked a Methodist Church during a Sunday service in Quetta.

1 dead 39 missing in Mediterranean Sea Momen

first_imgForeign minister AK Abdul Momen Wednesday said so far one dead and 39 missing in the boat capsized in the Mediterranean Sea have been identified as Bangladeshi nationals.“Our officials there so far identified one dead as Bangladeshi national while confirmed that at least 39 more compatriots are missing,” he told newsmen at a briefing at the foreign ministry in Dhaka.The minister said the Bangladesh officials of Libya mission, who are now in Tunisia, gathered the information about the dead and the missing Bangladeshis from statements of survivors of the boat that carried nearly 80 illegal migrants.“So far, one dead was identified as Bangladeshi national. The deceased is Uttam Das from Noria upazila in Shariatpur district,” Momen said.A total of 16 people were rescued by Tunisian fishermen after several hours of the boat capsized while among the survivors 14 are Bangladeshi nationals, he added.Among the survivors, four are now undergoing treatment with critical injuries at a Tunisian hospital while 10 others are staying at the Red Crescent camp there.“Our officials there are working to collect more information about the missing people” he said, adding, “It’s still uncertain how many Bangladeshi nationals are still missing,” he said.According to information receiving here from Tunisia, the foreign minister said, the tragedy unfolded after some 150 people including 130 Bangladeshis had left Zuwara on the northwestern Libyan coast late Thursday on a large boat.They were transferred to two smaller boats and the first boat had been able to reach offshore of Italy while the second one carrying some 70 to 80 people sunk off Tunisia, Momen said.“As per the survivors’ statements, they were forced board on the small boat. Even some were physically assaulted by traffickers for denying to board on the small boat,” he said.The foreign minister said the government will bring bodies of the Bangladeshi nationals back home whenever be found in Tunisia. Momen said the law enforcing agencies have already started work to identify the local human trafficking rackets in Bangladesh who had instigated the victims to migrate to Italy illegally.He said 23 fraud travel agencies in Sylhet have already been sealed off suspecting their involvement in human trafficking while a three-brother syndicate from Noakhali was identified as responsible for sending some of the victims.The foreign minister said officials of Bangladesh embassy in Libya went to Tunisia after the incident and they are keeping contact with the Red Crescent there.Currently, Momen said, Bangladesh is not sending any workers to war-torn Libya. These Bangladeshi nationals entered Libya via turkey and different countries of Middle Eastern countries with the help of the human traffickers, he added.“We have been informed that the traffickers even tortured them in Libya to get more money from their families at home. Those men were kept in Libya by the gang as like as hostages,” he added.Momen laid emphasis on taking coordinated efforts involving all relevant ministries and immigration police so that no Bangladeshi national can cross the country’s border with the intention of illegal migration.The identified missing Bangladeshis are – Abdul Aziz, Ahmed, Liton Ahmed, Khokon, Afzal Hossain, Momin Ahmed, Dilal Ahmed, Kashem, Zillur Rahman, Kamran Ahmed Maruf, Rukon Ahmed, Ayaz Ahmed, Sujon Ahmed, Indrajit, Jewel, Shoyeb, Saju from Sylhet, Maolana Mahbubur Rahman, Nazir Ahmed from Sunamganj, Hafiz Shamim Ahmed, Fahad Ahmed from Moulibazar, Muktadir from Habiganj, Ali Akbar, Zakir Hawlader, Shahed, Nayeem, Shapon, Nadim, Sajib from Madaripur, Sabbir, Jalaluddin, Sajal from Kishorganj, Abdur Rahim, owlader, Nasir Ahmed, Munir, Rajib, Parvez, Sumon, from Shariatpur and Jahid from Narshindhi.last_img read more

The First Streaming Radio Station for Kids Emerges in Baltimore

first_imgBaltimore’s first streaming radio station for kids “Kinkx Kids Radio” will launch, noon to 4 p.m., Oct. 18, at the Hamilton-Lauraville Farmers’ Market Lot, 4500 Harford Road, Baltimore, Md. Guest speakers will be Deborah Phelps, educator, author, and mother of Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps, and former Harlem Globetrotter, Charles “Choo” Smith.

Patch My PC Updater 40 review

first_imgPatch My PC Updater 4.0 review by Martin Brinkmann on February 19, 2018 in Software – Last Update: February 19, 2018 – 29 commentsPatch My PC Updater is a free program for Microsoft Windows PCs to run update checks on all installed software programs.We reviewed the program back in 2011 for the first time, and the release of version 4.0 was incentive enough to publish a new review.As is the case with update-related programs, it is limited by the supported software programs that it has in its database. You can, however, download and install updates that are available using Patch My PC Updater.Patch My PC Updater 4.0You can run Patch My PC Updater directly after the download as it does not need to be installed. The program requires an active Internet connection, however.Patch My PC Updater scans the installed programs on the PC it is run on when you start it. It supports more than 300 different programs in the latest version with new programs added regularly to the database.Programs are sorted into groups such as Media Tools, Browsers, or Plugins & Runtimes. Applications that are out of date are highlighted in red. The application lists the total number of detected applications and the number of applications with updates in its interface.First-time users may want to open the program options on the first run to customize the program’s functionality. It may be a good idea, for example, to enable the creation of a system restore point before updates. Other options worth exploring are to enable a download-only mode, disable the silent installation of applications, or to enable verbose logging.All outdated programs are selected by default. Patch My PC Updater 4.0 lacks options to start with a clean slate (remove all checkboxes) or filter the application listing.Updates happen silently in the background by default. This is comfortable as you don’t need to have to interact with program installers this way. The downside to this is that you have less control over the process. If you want full control, uncheck the silent installation option the program settings.The new version of Patch My PC Updater comes with a right-click context menu that you may use to enable or disable the automatic updating of applications, remove a program, add and remove from auto-installation, and to open the developer website.  The latter is especially useful for research, as you may want to check Patch My PC Updater’s findings before you hit the install button in the software.One interesting feature of the program is that you can schedule updates so that checks and the updates happen automatically. While that may not be for anyone, as you lose quite a bit of control when you let a program do all the updating automatically, some users may find it helpful keeping their systems up to date with minimal effort.You may have programs that you don’t want to update. This can be a commercial program that you purchased a license for that would expire if you upgrade or a program for which the developer published an interface redesign in a newer version.  Patch My PC Updater takes that into account and lets you block programs from being updated.Programs that are not installed on a PC may be installed as well. Just check the entry and click on the update button to install the application on the Windows machine.Patch My PC Updater includes additional nice-to-have features. It suppresses reboots, and may also install 32-bit versions of programs on 64-bit versions of Windows.Closing WordsPatch My PC Updater 4.0 is a well-designed program for Windows to help keep the software on a Windows machine up to date. It comes with the right customization and automation options, as it allows you to block updates or schedule updates so that they run automatically.The program would benefit from a few options that increase usability. An option to unselect all items, to display only programs with updates or options to display the release notes of programs with updates would be useful in my opinion.Now You: How do you keep track of program updates?Related articlesCheck your programs for updates automaticallyFileHippo App Manager: software update checkerHow to keep programs up to date without automatic updatesSumo 4 and new Pro version releasedUCheck: update checker and software installer by RogueKiller creatorSummary12345 Author Rating4.5 based on 13 votes Software Name Patch My PC UpdaterOperating System WindowsSoftware Category AdministrationLanding Page https://patchmypc.net/ Advertisementlast_img read more

RSNA 2017 is scheduled for Nov. 26-Dec. 1 in Chicago.Agfa’s offerings at the meeting will demonstrate how the company’s solutions create new cost efficiencies that allow for secure access to patient information and the delivery of high-quality care. Hands-on demonstrations and case study discussions will focus on the impact on patient care delivered by the company’s Enterprise Imaging platform and high-quality image processing solutions.  The portfolio extends from dynamic imaging powered by MUSICA image processing, to the converged Enterprise Imaging platform with specialized departmental workflow and comprehensive image management services.Agfa HealthCare Enterprise Imaging platform was designed expressly to support the central role that image capture and interpretation play in diagnosis, care and outcomes. The Enterprise Imaging platform is purpose-built to enable radiologists to practice consultative medicine securely from any location, advancing both patient and referring physician satisfaction. For example, maximizing the value of images in diagnosis and treatment, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared Xero Xtend adds 3-D processing and advanced functionalities to the Xero universal viewer. By transitioning to Agfa’s Enterprise Imaging solution, customers across the globe are creating a multispecialty patient imaging health record, building the foundation for future-proof radiology and multispecialty imaging workflows. Hands-on stations of the Enterprise Imaging platform will demonstrate how the solution is helping radiologists improve delivery of quality care with tools for real-time, secure visual collaboration with any stakeholder, advanced analytics and task-based workflow optimization. Platform design features focus on improving productivity, delivering rich applications and bringing radiology at the forefront in the delivery of evidence-based care.Increased focus by care providers on patient outcomes, cost and efficient delivery models continue to demand innovative approaches to clinical workflow solutions. Advances in artificial intelligence (AI), mobility and cloud computing are promising to redefine patient and clinician experience and challenge traditional care delivery models. Patients demand interaction that is insightful, personal, tailored to their care and responsive to their needs.Agfa HealthCare’s Enterprise Imaging platform enhances multi-disciplinary collaboration leveraging cloud and mobile technologies, enhances clinical intelligence by leveraging AI and cognitive technologies to help improve the delivery of patient care and efficiency for clinicians.The new DR 800 multi-purpose digital imaging system, a work in progress and not available in the U.S. and Canada, also will be on display at RSNA 2017.  The DR 800 solution delivers radiography, fluoroscopy and advanced clinical applications. Its MUSICA high-speed, multi-scale image processing software handles fluoroscopic images with high quality and low-dose features.  Agfa HealthCare’s Fast Forward to DR (digital radiography) program helps providers upgrade their X-ray imaging equipment at an affordable cost, often with no capital expense. The flexible program allows healthcare organizations to leverage their existing imaging investments, resulting in higher quality images, the potential for lower radiation dosages when cesium (CsI)-based detectors are used, increased productivity and a smooth, efficient workflow. Fast Forward to DR includes step-by-step, individualized return on investment guidance from Agfa’s team of specialists to help the health system get the most from Agfa’s DR offerings.Also highlighted at the booth will be the Advanced Clinical Workflow applications that enable multi-disciplinary consultation on a universal viewer linking digital radiography in real-time to enterprise imaging.For more information: www.agfahealthcare.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Cybersecurity | August 07, 2019 ScImage Introduces PICOM ModalityGuard for Cybersecurity ScImage Inc. is bridging the gap between security and functionality with the introduction of the PICOM ModalityGuard…. read more Sponsored Content | Case Study | Radiation Dose Management | August 13, 2019 The Challenge of Pediatric Radiation Dose Management Radiation dose management is central to child patient safety.
