The Latest Wittmore Takeover: Outerknown by Kelly Slater and John Moore

first_imgWhen you’re throwing on your favorite t-shirt, do you ever stop and wonder what you’re really wearing? Sure, you might know the brand, fit, and color, but do you actually know what it’s made from? Better yet, do you even know where it’s made? If you answered no to all of the above, you need to take a look at Outerknown. While some brands wipeout on those questions, this one gets a perfect ten. Founded by 11-time World Surf League Champion Kelly Slater, Outerknown is giving consumers transparency through each level of the supply chain.Related: Kelly Slater Launches Sustainable Menswear Brand OuterknownKelly Slater and acclaimed menswear designer, John Moore, partnered to create a contemporary menswear brand that is functional, stylish, and makes sustainability the spearhead of their business model. Moore stated, “We’re surfers who grew up with surf brands, but we grew out of logos. And we want to wear clothing that’s made better, fits better and looks better.” Along with their eco-friendly supply chain, they have partnered with the Fair Labor Association and Bluesign to protect workers, promote proper working conditions, and eliminate harmful substances from the manufacturing process. Their commitment to Outerknown’s purpose shows that it is possible for a brand to be both fashionable and environmentally conscious. While it’s hard for anyone to replicate what Slater and Moore have done, they are hopeful that Outerknown will inspire change within the fashion and apparel industry.So, what’s next on Outerknown’s agenda? They’re taking over Wittmore, a popular menswear store in the Arts District of downtown Los Angeles. It’s a forward-thinking company for men who appreciate smart, high quality designs from established, niche, and emerging brands. Many in the LA area flocked to Wittmore this past Thursday to celebrate the partnership. Owner of Wittmore, Paul C. Witt, sees promise in the brand’s vision. “Outerknown’s minimal and modern take on surf inspired clothing really goes beyond that inspiration in many ways and appeals to the ageless guy. I’m a big fan of John Moore’s aesthetic and the direction he’s taking the line.” This will be Outerknown’s first retail installation in the United States, and both Slater and Moore are stoked to have the opportunity to bring their brand’s story and purpose to life.Related: Shop Class – WittmoreYou can shop the collection at both Wittmore locations as well as online. The Outerknown Takeover only lasts through mid-November, so hop on your board and ride the wave of sustainability.

Trump threatens NBC but experts see no real risk to licenses

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – President Donald Trump is threatening NBC’s broadcast licenses because he’s not happy with how its news division has covered him. But experts say his threats aren’t likely to lead to any action.The network itself doesn’t need a license to operate, but individual stations do. NBC owns several stations in major cities. Stations owned by other companies such as Tribune and Cox carry NBC’s news shows and other programs elsewhere. Licenses come from the Federal Communications Commission, an independent government agency whose chairman is a Trump appointee.Trump tweeted Wednesday, “With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!”He returned to the topic Wednesday night, tweeting: “Network news has become so partisan, distorted and fake that licenses must be challenged and, if appropriate, revoked. Not fair to public!”NBC spokeswoman Hilary Smith had no comment. The FCC did not respond to messages seeking comment.These days, license renewals are fairly routine. A station could be deemed unfit and have its license stripped if it were telling lies and spreading fake news, as Trump claims. But Harold Feld of the consumer group Public Knowledge says that’s tough to prove.“The reality is it is just about impossible to make that showing,” he said. “All this stuff is opinion.”Feld said he can recall just two instances in the past 20 years when there has been a renewal challenge. One involved an owner of radio stations who was convicted of child molestation, and the other when someone died as part of a radio station’s contest. Both lost their licenses.Although yanking a license is rare, just the threat could put pressure on NBC’s news coverage.“The words ‘license renewal’ are ones which have had a chilling effect in the past on broadcasters,” said lawyer Floyd Abrams, an expert on the First Amendment, citing Richard Nixon’s attempts to sway news coverage as president. “The threat, however unlikely, is one that broadcasters will have to take seriously.”The National Association of Broadcasters, a trade group, said it was contrary to First Amendment principles “for any government official to threaten the revocation of an FCC license simply because of a disagreement with the reporting of a journalist.”Following his tweet, Trump told reporters in the Oval Office, “It’s frankly disgusting the way the press is able to write whatever they want to write and people should look into it.”Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse, a Republican who has been occasionally critical of Trump, took him to task in a statement released Wednesday night. “Words spoken by the President of the United States matter,” Sasse said. “Are you tonight recanting of the oath you took on January 20th to preserve, protect, and defend the First Amendment?”The president has long railed against mainstream media organizations, deriding them as “fake news.” He has also said he wanted to “open up” libel laws so he can more easily go after press outlets for stories he feels are inaccurate. That would require a constitutional amendment or reversal of Supreme Court precedent on the First Amendment.FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is a Trump appointee, but experts say he can’t pull a license just because he feels like it. Renewals come up every eight years, and challenges are heard by an administrative law judge.The judge’s decision can be overruled by political appointees at the FCC, however. And the agency could start a special proceeding to revoke a license, said Erwin Krasnow, former general counsel of NAB.Even so, Krasnow said a challenge is unlikely because of the First Amendment and because the Communications Act governing the FCC doesn’t allow for censorship.Pai’s past statements also suggest he wouldn’t use the agency’s powers to regulate news coverage. In a September speech, he noted that, while people want the FCC to take action against cable news channels like Fox News, MSNBC or CNN because they disagree with the coverage, “these demands are fundamentally at odds with our legal and cultural traditions.”Feld, who is a frequent critic of Pai, said the chairman is a fan of deregulation and “the last person in the world who would want to revive the license challenge process.”“NBC can sleep easy knowing Ajit Pai is chair,” Feld added.Both Democratic FCC commissioners touted freedom of the press in opposition to Trump’s tweet.“Revoking a #broadcast license on such grounds will only happen if we fail to abide by the First Amendment,” tweeted Mignon Clyburn. “Freedom of the press is a cornerstone of our democracy. Hope my @FCC colleagues can all be on the same page with respect to 1st Amendment,” wrote Jessica Rosenworcel.last_img read more

Gurugram air very poor due to dust storms

first_imgGururgam: Dusty winds have resulted in Gurugram air being in the very poor category. On Thursday the particulate levels of 2.5 microns in Gurugram was registered at 350 micrograms per cubic metres. This is way above the prescribed limits of 60 micrograms per cubic metre set by the world health organisation (WHO).Civic agencies are implementing GRAP measures as per AQI levels. All norms will be followed, as the AQI has been in the ‘very poor’ levels for the past 48 hours,” said an official of Haryana State Pollution Control Board (HSPCB). Also Read – Odd-Even: CM seeks transport dept’s views on exemption to women, two wheelers, CNG vehiclesAccording to the met department, dust storm conditions are making the situation in the city worse. “Dust particles from the Thar in Rajasthan are blowing towards this region. That is a major cause of continuous deterioration in air quality. Also, wind direction is west-south-west, leading to the transportation of more dust particles from the desert,” said the Met official. The condition might improve on Friday as a western disturbance is likely to hit the region. “We’re expecting both air pollution and temperature to fall slightly Friday onwards, as a western disturbance is likely to hit the region,” said the official. Also Read – More good air days in Delhi due to Centre’s steps: JavadekarThe city authorities are gearing up to implement GRAP (graded response action plan) measures for ‘very poor’ pollution levels after air quality continued to deteriorate and its index (AQI) got stuck in the ‘very poor’ level for the last 48 hours. On Wednesday, the city’s AQI deteriorated to 334 (very poor) from 303 on Tuesday (also very poor), after being in the ‘poor’ level on Monday (230). AQI was not recorded on Sunday but was 180 (moderate) on Saturday. Over the last two months, AQI was recorded between ‘moderate’ and ‘poor’ levels, necessitating the implementation of GRAP measures appropriate for those levels. The adverse effect of dust pollution is further compounded with most of the construction firms not following the norms. Most of the construction areas possessing of construction materials and dust particles are not covered has been directed by the Green Tribunal. Gurugram was recently declared the most polluted city in the world by a famous non-governmental organisation.last_img read more

Netflix joins MPAA lobbying group its 1st streaming member

NEW YORK — On the same day Netflix scored its first best picture nomination from the Oscars, the steaming company is also joining the lobbying group the Motion Picture Association of America.The MPAA announced Tuesday that Netflix will join its ranks, becoming the first streaming service to do so. The only other members of the MPAA are the six major studios.One of the MPAA’s chief goals is to combat piracy, which is a concern for Netflix as it continues to expand its footprint overseas. Netflix, though, doesn’t use the MPAA’s ratings system to stamp its films PG-13 or R, for example.The MPAA is largely uninvolved in theatrical window debates, an ongoing dispute that has put Netflix at odds with theatre owners.The Associated Press

Paris Agreement decisive turning point on climate change says new UN senior

A month and a half since 196 parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) adopted the Paris Agreement, the global community is already seeing signs of it being a decisive turning point, according to a senior UN official dealing with climate issues. “Much has been happening since Paris – the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) confirmed that 2015 was the hottest year on record, not just by a little but by a lot,” Janos Pasztor, who was today appointed as Senior Adviser to the Secretary-General on Climate Change, told reporters at a briefing in New York. For the past year, Mr. Pasztor had been leading the UN’s climate change efforts as Assistant Secretary-General on Climate Change, working towards last December’s 21st United Nations climate change conference (COP21).Recalling that UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has invited world leaders to a signing ceremony on 22 April – which coincides with International Mother Earth Day – the climate advisor noted that it will be the first day the Agreement is open for formal signatures. He said Mr. Ban is urging countries to quickly ratify the agreement so it can enter into force as soon as possible, adding that the event will also be an opportunity to discuss efforts to implement national climate plans, known as INDCs, and to generally “maintain the momentum of the action agenda.”Meanwhile, he underlined the Secretary-General’s recent call for a doubling of investments in clean energy by 2020, which he said was greeted “very positively” by many investors. “The Paris Agreement sent a clear message to markets and investors that it’s time to get serious about climate change. We’re now seeing evidence that the signal has been received loud and clear,” Mr. Pasztor stressed.Meanwhile, in a statement issued by the UN Spokesperson’s Office, Mr. Ban expressed his deep gratitude for Mr. Pasztor’s “dedicated service and leadership” over the past quarter of a century with the world body on the key global challenges of climate change, energy and sustainability. “In his new role as Senior Adviser to the Secretary-General on Climate Change, Mr. Pasztor will support efforts of the Secretary-General to mobilize world leaders and all sectors of society to implement the landmark Paris Agreement,” the statement indicated. read more

Female role models should appear in more adverts after rule change to

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Keeley Foster, the LFB’s Deputy Assistant Commissioner, added: “Many ads continue to rely on outdated clichés that project firefighting as a male only job.“The ban on gender stereotype ads will hopefully help change attitudes and in turn encourage more women to embark on a wonderful and fulfilling career in the fire service.” One of Girlguiding’s Brownie and Guides group leaders, named only as Abigail, believes it “could make a huge change to the future of girls and young women”.”I think one advert that comes to mind is an Aptamil advert where babies were drinking milk, they had the exact same formula, but the girls were shown growing up to be ballerinas whereas the boys were shown growing up to be mathematicians,” she said.”That was purely based on gender, and I think the whole idea of you can’t be what you can’t see comes into play here. “Yes it’s ok for girls to be a mum or a ballerina, but you can also be a scientist or an astronaut and if we’re never showing the fact that you can do that then I don’t think you see those paths as being for you.”The LFB said portrayals of firefighting in the media are “a key barrier for young girls and women thinking of it as an achievable profession”. Female scientists, astronauts and firefighters should appear more in adverts following a new ban on “harmful” gender stereotypes, campaigners say.A rule to prevent sexist portrayals of men and women was introduced by The Committees of Advertising Practice (CAP) on Friday.It says adverts must not contain “gender stereotypes which are likely to cause harm or serious or widespread offence”.The ban will cover depictions of men struggling to change nappies, women who are unable to park and girls being less academic than boys.If an advert is complained about under the new code, the use of “humour” or “banter” is unlikely to be considered a valid defence. Campaigners hope it will spell the end of marketing like an 2017 advert for Aptamil milk which showed baby girls growing up to be ballerinas and boys growing up to be engineers and mountain climbers.  The ASA said ads can still show people in gender-stereotypical roles, such as a woman cleaning or a man doing DIY, if they do not suggest that the “roles or characteristics shown are always uniquely associated with one gender”.They added: “Ads should be sensitive to the emotional and physical well-being of vulnerable groups of people who may be under pressure to conform to particular gender stereotypes. “The use of humour or ‘banter’ is unlikely to mitigate against the types of harm or serious or widespread offence identified in relation to gender stereotypes.” “A ‘it’s a joke’ defence, probably won’t be enough to convince the ASA that there isn’t a problem under the new rule.” Complaints about that advertising were not upheld at the time because the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), which follows the CAH code, did not have the power to act on the grounds of gender stereotypes.Girlguiding, a charity for young women and girls, and the London Fire Brigade (LFB) were among the groups who encouraged the rule change during the consultation process.  read more

Vegetarians and vegans have a higher risk of stroke than those who

And around 100,000 more will experience a stroke.Most cases are ischaemic, where the blood supply is stopped, as the result of heart disease. But 15 per cent of cases are hemorrhagic, where a weakened blood vessel supplying the brain suddenly bursts, as the result of an aneurism or raised blood pressure.The extra stroke risk for vegetarians is equivalent to three more cases of stroke per 1000 people over 10 years.  And their reduced heart disease risk is equal to 10 fewer cases per 1000 people over the same period. There were 2,820 cases of heart disease and 1,072 cases of stroke during the study period,  including 300 cases of hemorrhagic stroke. Researchers said said vegetarians and vegans in the study had lower circulating levels of several nutrients, including vitamin B12, vitamin D, essential amino acids and long chain  polyunsaturated fatty acids which might contribute to the increased stroke risk. Every year, around 100,000 people in the UK will suffer a heart attack.  “In this study, after accounting for alternative risk factors, while risk of heart disease was lower in vegetarians, risk of haemorrhagic stroke was higher in vegetarians. Heart disease is more common than haemorrhagic stroke, so vegetarians did have better cardiovascular health outcomes overall despite having higher risk of haemorrhagic stroke.”“While the differences observed were small in magnitude, this study suggests that taking up a vegetarian diet may not be universally beneficial for all health outcomes.”In a linked editorial, Professor Mark Lawrence at Deakin University, Australia, suggests that the study’s stroke risk should be kept in perspective. “It is based on results from just one study and the increase is modest relative to meat eaters,” he said. Estimates suggest there are now around 1.7 million vegetarians and vegans in the UK.Lead author Dr Tammy Tong, from the Nuffield Department of Population Health, Oxford University said further large studies were needed to confirm the findings, before advice was offered to the public.Dr Stephen Burgess, Group Leader at the MRC Biostatistics Unit, University of Cambridge, said:  A cook carries a tray of burger patties Vegetarians have a higher risk of stroke than those who enjoy a good steak, a major study has found. The Oxford University research, published in the BMJ, suggests that a meat-free diet may cause lower blood levels of total cholesterol, and reduce intake of vitamins which protect against such attacks.The study, which tracked almost 50,000 Britons for 18 years, found vegetarians and vegans had a 20 per cent higher risk of stroke than those who eat meat.Most of the increased risk was due to a higher rate of hemorrhagic stroke.  These occur when blood from an artery starts bleeding into the brain.Vegetarians and vegans in the study had lower circulating cholesterol and lower levels of key nutrients – such as vitamin B12 and D – which could explain the link, researchers said.However, those avoiding meat had a significantly lower chance of heart attacks, the study found. Vegetarians were found to have a 22 per cent lower risk of heart disease, in total, while those eating fish but no meat had a 13 per cent lower risk. Experts said some of the difference might be linked to lower weight, blood pressure, and fewer cases of conditions like diabetes among those shunning meat.  Those avoiding meat had a significantly lower chance of heart attacks, the study foundCredit:Jason Alden/Bloomberg Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Toy Tuesday 11 Coolest Iron Man Toys

first_img Of all the toyetic superheroes out there, none has the gadget potential quite like Iron Man. Tony Stark has made a career out of building new and fun gizmos and gadgets to trick out his metal suit, and naturally that extends itself to tie-in toys. There are boatloads of Iron Man toys and figures out there, but if you’re not on a billionaire’s budget these are the ones you’ll want to pick up.Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Iron Man Mark ILet’s start at the very beginning, with the Mark I suit that Tony put together out of scraps in that cave in Afghanistan or wherever. This Hot Toys figure is wildly detailed, standing a foot tall with 36 points of articulation. You can lift the helmet’s faceplate to see Tony Stark inside but the armor isn’t removable – he’ll die! Put in a few batteries and the arc reactor on his chest and his arm laser will light up. Throw in multiple hands and a flamethrower attachment with translucent modeled flame and you’re ready to start your superheroic career.Get it at Amazon.comMAFEX Hulkbuster Action FigureWhen you’re squaring off with a gamma-powered goliath who gets stronger as he gets madder, you need to bring out the heavy artillery. Stark first deployed the Hulkbuster armor in 1994 and it’s gone through a number of iterations, sacrificing maneuverability for brute strength and damage resistance. Medicom’s MAFEX line is a favorite around here for their detailed sculpts and accurate painting, and this take on the movie version of the armor is totally sweet. Standing over a foot tall and weighing three pounds, this is a humdinger of a figure that will dominate your toy shelf.Get it at Amazon.comMedicom Iron Man Sofubi FigureIf you remember the old-school solid vinyl WWF action figures of the 1980s, you’ll get this Japanese “Sofubi” style Iron Man. Standing ten inches tall, Tony can’t really move his arms or legs but he’s probably the only one on this list who can survive getting chewed on by your dog, not that you’d let that happen. The sculpt takes inspiration from the classic Gene Colan armor design from the late 1960s, with the round arc reactor and exaggerated shoulders.Get it at Amazon.comHall Of Armor NendoroidGood Smile’s Nendoroid figures are mainstays of toy collections around the world for the way they cleverly combine big-headed kawaii aesthetics with gritty detailing. They’ve done a few Tony Starks, but our favorite is the one that comes with the Hall of Armor backdrop so you can see some of the other suits the Iron Avenger has worn during his heroic tenure. The figure itself has an alternate head and hand parts and is remarkably poseable. It comes with both a standing base and a flight base as well, so there’s not much this little guy can’t do.Get it at Amazon.comSentinel Modular Iron Man FigureIt was hard to pick just one of Sentinel’s insanely cool Iron Man Re: Edit line — they’ve done over a dozen different variants of the armored hero, from the star-spangled Iron Patriot suit to the House of M super-ornate model. But this one — a futuristic modular look that comes with anime-styled shoulder cannons and vibroblade — is our favorite. It takes the classic elements that we know – the red and gold color scheme and aerodynamic styling – and gives it a unique twist. Seven inches tall with tons of articulation for maximum posing.Get it at Amazon.comDie-Cast MKI ArmorPlastic is all well and good, but when you’re buying an Iron Man toy you want to go old-school with die-cast metal. It’s just beefier. This four-inch figure from Jada isn’t as poseable as some of the other items on this list, but it makes up for it with density. Minimal paint — just hands and eyes — but textured with scuffs and dings to replicate battle damage, this figurine stands perfectly upright without a base and outweighs some of the bigger figures you already own.Get it at Amazon.comTy Iron Man PlushThe 90s were notorious for two collectible fads: comic books and Beanie Babies. So it was only a matter of time before the two fused into one. Behold, the Iron Man Beanie Baby. Instead of being made from unforgiving metal, this stuffed plush is soft fabric and squishy beans, making it perfect for a snuggle after a long day at the office. Just don’t put your retirement fund into buying them, because we can’t promise it’ll go up in value on eBay.Get it at Amazon.comBandai Tamashii Nations Samurai Iron ManWe love the Tamashii Nations line from Bandai — not only do they deliver insanely detailed action figure sculpts in a compact size with lots of poseability, they do unique takes on characters with heavy Japanese influence. Imagine an alternate world in which Tony Stark wasn’t a Western industrialist but a Japanese warrior, enclosed in traditional armor of his own making. Twin flintlock pistols replace his traditional repulsor rays, and Stark has a katana in case he needs to engage up close. The precise tiny features on this, like the rivets on the armor, make it a real collector’s piece.Get it at Amazon.comPlay Arts Kai: War Machine Action FigureKeep in mind that Iron Man hasn’t always been Tony Stark — when the industrialist got too deep in the bottle to fight evil, his loyal assistant James “Rhodey” Rhodes took up the mantle. After Tony fought his inner demons, Rhodey was too valuable to go back to civilian life so he got his own set of armor, dubbed “War Machine.” This seriously sweet Square Enix figure gives you a model of the heavily armed warrior, complete with multiple interchangeable weapon parts that affix to his back and shoulders with secure ratchet jointing.Get it at Amazon.comIron Man Replica HelmetThis is not so much a “toy” per se, as it’ll run you almost seven hundred bucks, but if you’re looking to snatch up a movie-quality Iron Man helmet this is the one. Made by Gmasking, it’s CNC cast out of aerospace-grade aluminum, with tons of insanely cool features like a remote-controlled faceplate that opens and closes, LED lights in the eye sockets, and the like. The inside is padded for maximum comfort, and you’ll need it because this puppy weighs in at 11 pounds.Get it at Amazon.comChogokin Heroes Iron ManBack to Japan for another take on Iron Man. Obviously the Land of the Rising Sun has a storied history of toy robots, and Bandai’s Chogokin Heroes line pays tribute to some of the old-school styles. Standing a little under four inches tall and made from diecast metal and plastic, the Iron Man figure is based on the traditional “chogokin” figure design, which was used extensively for sentai heroes in Japan. This visible-jointed design was big in the old days because it was exceptionally durable, and it still holds up.Get it at Amazon.comMore on Most Radioactive ‘Fallout’ ToysThe Most Magical ‘Harry Potter’ ToysKindle the Bonfire With ‘Dark Souls’ Toys Stay on target Toy Tuesday: The Best ‘South Park’ ToysThe New Lego UCS Imperial Star Destroyer Is Nearly Four Feet Long last_img read more

Idea behind OrthoDirect something to smile about

first_imgA young business in Clark County hopes to narrow some gaps in the business of fixing teeth.OrthoDirect, founded by two Vancouver siblings, opened its first two offices last summer in Vancouver and Hillsboro, Ore., offering invisible aligners at reduced costs.Co-founder Natalie Olsen, a graduate of Heritage High School, came to the idea when her dentist brother, Dr. Phillip Cronin, offered to fix a crooked tooth using the aligners. She sent a mold of her bite to his offices in Arkansas, and soon received invisible, plastic retainers that slowly shift teeth into the desired position.Olsen, an entrepreneur with a real estate background, said she gained confidence and a new business idea. People often say they would fix their teeth if it was more affordable; she thought maybe the siblings could help.“As dumb as it sounds, I stopped smiling because I hated that crooked tooth,” she said. “My brain started turning. I brought it up with my brother, and he said there was a company doing this already. We started talking about how we can make it more affordable for people.”According to a 2013 survey by the American Dental Association, braces and invisible aligners can typically range in price from $4,685 to $7,135. OrthoDirect hopes to offer its aligners for less than $1,500. Some dental insurance plans can cover up to half the cost, Olsen said.last_img read more

Juneteenth offers fun serious discussion

first_imgThis year’s Juneteenth celebration will run the gamut — from music, dancing and a bouncy house for children to serious conversation about ending systemic racism in our community and around the world.The annual event, sponsored by the NAACP Vancouver, is set for 1 to 6 p.m. Saturday at Foster and Hanna Hall at Clark College, 1933 Fort Vancouver Way in Vancouver.The YWCA Clark County will begin the day by honoring two Vancouver residents for leadership in working toward the elimination of racism and the promotion of peace and justice with its annual Val Joshua Racial Justice Award and Youth Social Justice Award. After that, a 2 p.m. WorkSource job fair will spotlight local, livable-wage jobs. The day winds up with a 4 p.m. panel discussion about ending and erasing systemic racism, entitled, “Where do we go from here?” and featuring community organizers and officials from Clark County, the city of Vancouver, Vancouver police and the Vancouver and Evergreen school districts.That’s all serious and important stuff, but plenty of fun is on the schedule, too: crafts and games for children including face painting and that bouncy house; free hot dogs and hamburgers for the first 75 kids; contests to choose the best NAACP T-shirt design and “Grandma’s Best Pie”; and music and dancing by Portland’s Groovin’ Highsteppers.Freedom DayWhat is “Juneteenth”? Also known as African American Freedom Day, it’s a mash-up of “June 19th,” the date in 1865 when the last slaves in America were freed. That was in Galveston, Texas, and two-and-a-half long years after President Abraham Lincoln signed his Emancipation Proclamation, freeing slaves throughout the Confederacy. It was also months after the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution banned slavery throughout the nation, and months after the Civil War officially ended.last_img read more

Facebook Complaints Are A New Kind Of 911 Call In The Platforms

Facebook Complaints Are A New Kind Of 911 Call In The Platforms

first_imgKativ/Getty Images/VettaOver the past few months, Charlie Manning has gotten complaints about Facebook advertisements, requests for assistance in recovering lost passwords and demands to speak to Mark Zuckerberg. She doesn’t work for Facebook, though: Manning is a senior 911 dispatcher for the Menlo Park, Calif., police department. She regularly gets 911 calls from Facebook users around the world.Since relocating its corporate headquarters from nearby Palo Alto in 2011, Facebook’s main offices are located in Menlo Park. At night, calls to the business number for Menlo Park Police go to the 911 dispatch office — so anyone who looks up Facebook, finds out it’s in Menlo Park and wants to call the police there will reach the dispatch center.Dispatchers say they haven’t noticed an uptick in calls since Facebook’s recent data scandals. “A lot of people call and say that my account has been hacked and want you to go and find who this person is that hacked my account,” Manning said.This typical call gets the same general response from dispatchers: There’s nothing the local police can do about the private company. Manning and her team of dispatchers usually recommend that callers file a case with Facebook’s help center. She says she understands why people who call his dispatch center often feel desperate.“They’re up late at night at 11 o’clock and they’re looking at Facebook,” Manning says. And when Facebook users feel something criminally wrong has happened to them, “Who are they going to call? They’re going to call us. They feel it’s an emergency because it’s personally affecting their lives and they want action right then and there.”Some of the calls strike Manning as serious.“You get teenagers [whose accounts have been hacked] where the world is crashing in on them,” she says. “I do feel sorry for them; I do. And it calms them down, as long as somebody’s heard what’s happening.”A registered nurse called from North Carolina to report advertisements for illegal giveaways of prescription drugs. One man drove to the gates of Facebook, and when he wasn’t let in, called the police. “I need to see Mr. Z. personally,” the man told them. The dispatcher recommended he file his complaint online.“I think a lot of people calling have this grandiose view,” said Karen Salas, a fellow dispatcher. “Facebook’s here, and Facebook’s big … so we [the police department] must be giant, too.”Other calls are a bit more lighthearted. A man in Germany who called didn’t have a complaint: “He was just mesmerized and wanted to make sure this was Menlo Park where Facebook was located,” Manning said.The dispatch center also regularly receives Facebook-related calls that are relevant to the city. Tech commuters nearly double the daily population of Menlo Park, and the city is trying to keep up with the growth as Facebook continues to build more offices on what was once empty marshland.“As [the company] has grown, we’ve gotten more and more 911 calls,” Manning says. “Disputes, accidents, arguments, medicals.” She’s noticed a number of calls about bicycle accidents between buildings on the Facebook campus, and road rage incidents during commuter hours.Facebook has offered to pay for a community police substation and increasing the size of the police force. In 2017, the company offered the city of Menlo Park $11.2 million over five years to support its proposals. Last October, the Menlo Park city council voted unanimously to expand its police force “assuming that it will reach an agreement with Facebook that the company will cover the costs of the department’s expansion,” according to local press.The town plans to hire five additional police officers and one sergeant over the next year or so. Dispatchers will continue to direct callers they can’t help to the same place they always have — Facebook’s help center.Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit Sharelast_img read more

From screen to the stage

From screen to the stage

first_imgA theatrical adaptation of Mahesh Bhatt’s Hindi classic, Daddy is going to be staged in the Capital soon. Directed by Danish Iqbal, the ninety minute play tells the story of a princess and her father and how her courage broke an evil spell to make them live happily ever after.The show will be graced by the presence of Mahesh Bhatt and Pooja Bhatt among the audience. Imran Zahid has been roped in to reprise the role of the father, played by Anupam Kher on screen. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Mahesh Bhatt says, ‘After the success of Arth’s theatrical version, I thought that Daddy, too ,was a kind of movie that could be brilliantly adapted for the stage. It has same raw human emotions and naked truths about life and hence can have a similar kind of impact. The description of the play is on the shoulders of Danish Iqbal, who is an able director’.Iqbal noted, ‘At a time when, people are moving towards film industry from theatre, it is a good sign that such a renowned director is giving importance to stage’. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixRajesh Kumar who scripted The Last Salute and Trial of Errors is the script writer for Daddy. Pooja bhatt, who made her big-screen debut with the movie, is excited that the movie is coming alive on stage and a fresh face would be portraying her role. She said, ‘Daddy was my debut film. I had a few offer for commercial movies at that time, and I remember that Bhatt saab had asked me if I’d like to be known as an actor or a star, as he wanted to offer me a film that would be mentioned in my obituary. I’m glad that Daddy touched the lives of many people. The issue is still relevant today and I hope this adaption is going to be a success’.When: 4 – 5 August Where: Sri Ram Centre, Mandi House Time: 7 pm onwardslast_img read more

Images courtesy of Bracco News | Pediatric Imaging | August 14, 2019 Ultrasound Guidance Improves First-attempt Success in IV Access in Children August 14, 2019 – Children’s veins read more September 1, 2010 – Two devices in one is one of the mega trends in imaging diagnostics. The spectrum ranges from a combination of positron emission tomography (PET) with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computer tomography (CT) to a combination of ultrasound with endoscopy. At MEDICA 2010, World Forum for Medicine – International Trade Fair and Congress, to be held from Nov. 17–20, 2010 in Düsseldorf, Germany, medical technology companies and congress speakers will focus on innovative hybrid procedures such as endosonography and its application in the daily clinical routine. Use of these so-called hybrid procedures is increasing, primarily on cancer patients.The idea is obvious: Combine two diagnostic procedures in a single examination in order to obtain the information from two procedures, not just from one imaging method, more easily and with less stress for the patient. This is made possible by these hybrid procedures, in which two different imaging methods are combined in a single comprehensive technical system.One example of a special hybrid system is the whole-body PET / MRT scanner, equipped with the latest Philips technology, which was installed at the University Hospital of Geneva this year. However, it will still be used primarily for research purposes. This system combines two procedures which were not combinable up to now, namely magnetic resonance tomography (MRT) and positron emission tomography (PET). The combination of MRT and PET allows the spatial structures and the metabolism activity of the organs to be displayed in a single image. This is of particular interest in cancer treatment, because tumor cells often require more energy than the healthy cells in adjacent tissue. This is important for initial diagnosis, surgery planning and verifying how successfully the tumor was treated.“The combination of anatomical imaging by MRT and the metabolism through the applied, radioactively marked tracer for PET will assist in monitoring and prediction as well as supervising the treatment of cancer patients and will provide more precise information on how the patients respond to treatments. We also believe that hybrid imaging will also have more potential in other areas, particularly in cardiovascular imaging as well as neurology,” explains professor Osman Ratib, chief physician at the Clinic of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine of the University of Geneva.Currently, both MRT and PET examinations are performed separately, often over several days. Then the images are superimposed on the processing console. Consequently it is very difficult to match the images precisely, as the patient is never in exactly the same position during the examinations and the alignment of the respective scanners does not always correspond precisely. Large diagnostic devices that combine PET and computer tomography have been in use for years as PET/CT devices. In contrast, the combination MRT and PET was thought to be virtually unfeasible. “Up to now, the magnetic field of the MRT prevented the proper functioning of the PET scanner and created artefacts,” says Professor Ratib. These problems have been solved in the new whole-body PET / MRT scanner. With the hybrid device, the two scanners are located in a room opposite to each other. In between is a rotating table, so that PET and MRT can take place one after the other without the patient changing position. “We chose three particular areas in which we expect a significant improvement,” states Professor Ratib. These are, firstly, patients with head/neck tumors where the evaluation of tumor recidivation with conventional imaging is often very difficult due to the frequently very radical surgery. The PET / MRT will also be used for prostate cancer, where the primary aim is the early recognition of recidivation, and for breast cancer, where the procedure will help to improve the differential diagnostics.Significantly less examination stressRadiologists at the University Hospital of Tübingen have had a combined PET MRT system for a year already. Professor Claus D. Claussen, Medical Director at the Department of Radiology, remarks: “For our patients, this means that in future there will be significantly less examination stress because the examination time can be considerably reduced and the exposure to radiation will be eliminated. This technology allows earlier recognition of tumors and metastases, they can be characterized more clearly, and their location relative to the organs more definitely established. The expected result will be earlier and more targeted therapy.” The University Hospital has already completed important steps in the development of PET-MRT for the head. Now the challenge for scientists is to adapt the imaging technology for the head, which is relatively small, to the whole body. The PET-MR for brain imaging was developed in cooperation with Siemens.Researchers in Jülich expect to recognize brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s in the very early stages with a PET plus a strong MRT of 9.4 tesla (that is almost 200,000 times stronger than the earth’s magnetic field) – a technology also developed by Siemens. The device simultaneously records the tissue structure and biochemical processes in the brain. The director of the Institute for Neurosciences and Medicine, Professor Jon Shah, expects a resolution of under 0.1 millimetres. Researchers also expect advances in basic research, for instance with respect to addiction and headache. However, improved diagnosis does not mean immediate improved therapy. It may take years until new therapeutic agents developed on the basis of this research can be tested.Combination of MR and ultrasoundWith MRgFUS and MR-Touch, the US company GE Healthcare has two hybrid procedures in its range of products. MRgFUS is a combination of MRT and highly focused ultrasound for myoma therapy. MR-Touch is a special elastography procedure that allows visual scanning of organs. For centuries, physicians have relied on their sense of touch when examining their patients, for instance when feeling for lumps in the breast or palpating the liver in order to recognize liver fibrosis. However, not all the organs can be reached like that. MR-Touch provides the solution. The process utilizes a combination of low-frequency sound waves and MR technology to measure the elasticity of the tissue. This produces an elastogram, a color-coded anatomical image of the firmness of the liver tissue. The process comprises three steps. First, sound waves (between 40 and 200 Hz) are generated in the body by means of an MRT-compatible generator. In the second step, an image of these sound waves is created with a special MR imaging sequence. In the third and last step, these data are processed and an elastogram is created which shows the relative firmness of the tissue in the area being examined.The advantage of endosonography (EUS, endoscopic ultrasound) is also the combination of two imaging procedures, in which the organs are not examined from the outside through the skin, but from the inside. The ultrasound head directly contacts interior surfaces such as the mucosa of the oesophagus by means of an endoscope. In contrast to conventional ultrasound examinations through the skin, the advantage of this procedure is that the target organ is closer to the ultrasound head, therefore allowing it to be displayed more precisely or actually displayed at all. A balloon filled with water is often placed on the tip of the endoscope in order to enhance the display. This improves conduction of the ultrasound waves to the tissue as well as improved reflection. Different devices are used, for instance those made by Olympus, depending of the area of application. Miniprobe systems are related to endosonography. These are instruments that can be pushed through a biopsy channel, for instance. However, the radius of the penetration depth of the ultrasound is smaller. Miniprobe endosonography is particularly suitable for such procedures as the targeted examination of a polyp or to estimate the depth of a malignant tumor.Endosonography gains in significanceEndosonography “allows the observation of almost microscopically precise sectional images of the intestine wall,” explains Dr. Elke Burmester of Sana Clinics in Lübeck. The examination itself is relatively simple and not very stressful for patients. The significance of endosonography in imaging diagnostics, above all for colorectal diseases, has increased in recent years and it is now considered an important diagnostic building block. On the one hand this applies for assessment of the continence organ, anorectal abscesses and fistulas. On the other hand, with respect to cases of rectal carcinoma endosonography is now an obligatory component of the current S3-guidelines (S3 = highest guideline classification issued by Germany’s Association of Scientific Medical Societies AWMF). Determination of the tumor infiltration depth and evidence of lymph node metastases is very precise. The hybrid procedure allows exact therapy control with tumor follow-up, through which it is possible to recognize and precisely puncture suspicious findings.This procedure is also an option in the diagnosis of tumors in the area of the pancreas and in cases of unclear cholistasis. According to Burmester, the results of EUS in pancreatic procedures are rather unsatisfactory. In addition, endosonography is particularly sensitive in the diagnosis of neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas. It is even indispensable for the diagnosis of insulinoma for pre-operative planning.At MEDICA 2010, the state of modern tumor therapy is the topic of several congress events held at the Congress Center South.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content News | Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) | August 06, 2019 Canon Medical Introduces Encore Orian MR Upgrade Program Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. is helping to provide low-cost patient care solutions for its customers with the launch… read more center_img The ScanTrainer transvaginal simulator is one example of Intelligent Ultrasound’s simulation technologies.

The unit will have three dedicated cardiac MRI scanners and will be one of the largest facilities of its kind in Europe. It will be the first centre in the United Kingdom with the latest 3T MRI scanner, the Siemens Prisma, to be used for assessment of the heart.The outpatients now being referred to the new service are predominantly from hospitals around north and east London.The first patient to receive a cardiac MRI scan at the new centre was Dara Singh Sian, 53, an electrical engineer from Ilford in Essex.Dara, who is a father-of-two, said: “I have had scans before at the London Chest Hospital and I am looking forward to seeing the brand new facilities at the centre. It’s brilliant to see that progress is being made for patients.”Cardiac MRI uses radio waves and powerful magnets to create still and moving images of the heart. It is a non-invasive investigation as no tubes or other instruments are inserted into the body to obtain images. It is used to assess how well the heart is pumping, look for any type of scarring or damage to the heart muscle and also make sure that the arteries that supply blood to the heart are not severely narrowed or blocked.Barts Heart Centre will start to welcome both outpatients and inpatients in Spring 2015 and will be one of the biggest heart centres in Europe. It will bring together under one roof all of Barts Health cardiovascular services. This includes the transfer of services from the London Chest Hospital in Bethnal Green and the proposed move of services provided at the Heart Hospital in Marylebone, part of University College London Hospitals, which is subject to approval by regulators.The new centre, which will serve people in north and east London, Hertfordshire, Essex and nationally, will deliver improvements and pioneering treatments, see increased research and development investment and further enhance patient outcomes.It will also be part of UCL Partners, the United Kindom’s largest academic health science network, facilitating research, development and collaboration across a wide group of healthcare providers and academic institutions.Dr. Mark Westwood, clinical cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) lead at Barts Health NHS Trust said: “It is great to see the centre start to welcome patients through its doors. This marks a major milestone as the new Barts Heart Centre that has been planned for a number of years and marks a significant development in provision of heart services for patients across London.“The center will allow us to consolidate our unique experience and research by bringing experienced clinicians together to improve services for today’s patients and future generations.”For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Feature | Contrast Media | July 18, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr How To Manage Risk in the MR Suite Macrocyclic contrast agents have the best safety profile of all the magnetic resonance (MR) contrast media that are n read more News | Focused Ultrasound Therapy | July 10, 2019 Insightec’s Exablate Neuro Approved With GE Signa Premier MRI in U.S. and Europe GE Healthcare and Insightec announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval and CE mark for Insightec’s… read more News | Neuro Imaging | July 05, 2019 Delta T1 Maps Provide Quantitative, Automated Solution to Assess Brain Tumor Burden Imaging Biometrics LLC (IB) a subsidiary of IQ-AI Ltd., is highlighting a recently published study in the American… read morelast_img read more
