UN mission delays start of disarmament in Côte dIvoire

The beginning of the disarmament was postponed so as to allow the operation to be carried out more efficiently, according to Jean-Luc Stalon, the head of the Division for Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) of the UN Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI, also known by the French acronym, ONUCI).The militia leaders made their request after a meeting with the national DDR chief, General Gaston Ouassénan Kone, Mr. Stalon said in Abidjan, expressing the hope that the exercise would begin in the coming days.The UN Security Council established the mission in May 2003 to help the Ivorian parties implement the peace agreement they signed in January 2003. The pact ended the north-south civil war that erupted after an attempted coup failed to unseat President Laurent Gbagbo.Meanwhile, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General, Pierre Schori, was visiting Sweden and France to inform the authorities in those countries of the latest developments in bringing the divided West African country out of its crisis, UNOCI spokesman Hamadoun Touré said.He added that Mr. Schori also wished the national soccer team, the Elephants, good luck as they went to take part in the World Cup for the first time in the country’s history. read more

Eddie Lacys Weight is a NonIssue For Green Bay

Green Bay Packers’ rookie Eddie Lacy is the first to admit he’s a big guy. But maybe he is bigger than he thinks.A photo surfaced online of the running back turning back to look for a ball during a recent training camp practice, and he looked out of shape.Circulation of the photo went viral and by late Monday, Lacy caught wind of all the fat jokes that were being made at his expense.Listed at 5-foot-11 and 230 pounds, Lacy brushed off the jokes, saying his coaches have no issues with his weight or conditioning.“I’m at a weight where I’m comfortable at and the coaching staff feels as though they’re comfortable where I’m at,” Lacy said after Tuesday’s practice, which was his best of camp so far. “So as far as that’s concerned, we’re all on the same page.”Coach Mike McCarthy didn’t seem worried about Lacy’s size.“If we had any concerns about any of our guys conditioning-wise, they wouldn’t be on the field,” said McCarthy. read more

Another major Air Products project supporting Chinas coal energy industry

first_imgAir Products, a world-leading industrial gases company, has signed an agreement with a subsidiary of Shanxi Jincheng Anthracite Coal Mining Group, China’s leading coal mining conglomerate, for the supply of industrial gases to Phase One of Shanxi Jinmei Huayu Coal Chemical Co Ltd.’s coal-to-clean-fuels project in Jincheng City, Shanxi Province.Previously, Air Products signed a sale of equipment agreement with Jinmei Huayu to supply two air separation units (ASUs)—with a total capacity of over 4,000 t/d—for this project, which uses coal to produce clean fuels.Now, Air Products intends to buy back the two ASUs for approximately $100 million and supply industrial gases via pipelines to Jinmei Huayu under a long-term supply agreement, subject to finalization of a buy-back agreement and any government and regulatory approvals. The ASUs are expected to be onstream in mid-2018. Seifi Ghasemi, Air Products’ chairman, President and CEO, and Li Hongshuang, Party secretary and Chairman of Shanxi Jincheng Anthracite Coal Mining Group, witnessed the contract signing.Ghasemi said, “We are delighted to deepen our cooperation with one of China’s leading energy groups, Shanxi Jincheng Anthracite Coal Mining, on this significant coal-to-clean energy project. This is another great example of our strategic focus to deploy capital on high-quality industrial gas projects for growth. Our valued customer has entrusted the ASU operation and supply of safe and reliable industrial gases to us. We appreciate their confidence in us and look forward to broader cooperation with the group in future.” Li said, “Air Products is a leading global industrial gases supplier and a most ideal partner for us. This strategic cooperation leverages both parties’ advantages and positions us well for further development.” This agreement follows Air Products’ recent major investments with Lu’An in Changzhi, Shanxi Province and Yankuang in Yulin, Shaanxi Province to support China’s ongoing transformation and upgrade of its coal chemical industry that targets products with higher added-value and sustainability.Shanxi Jincheng Anthracite Mining Group (Jinmei Group) is an important, high-quality anthracite producer, the largest CBM extraction and utilization group, the largest coal chemical industry group and CMM-fired power group in China, and the most energetic coal mining machinery manufacturing group in Shanxi Province. Currently, Jinmei Group has 68 subsidiaries and 10 branches in 19 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions, 72 cities and counties. In 2017, it ranked 476th among top global 500 companies and 108th among top China companies. In recent years, it says, “basing on the resource advantages of anthracite and CBM, Jinmei Group has changed the mode of development actively, upgraded industry levels steadily, and built the industrial pattern called “one focus four directions,” which takes the coal industry as the fundamental and also develops Coal and CBM Co-mining, Coal and Chemical linkage, Coal electricity integration and Coal equipment manufacturing. It has formed the cross-regional, cross-industrial and cross-trade modern integrated energy enterprise group.”Air Products was one of the first multinational industrial gas companies to enter the China market when it set up its first plant in Shenzhen in 1987. Following 30 years of continuous growth and investment, it has today around 2,700 employees, about 70 entities and more than 140 production facilities in the country, and continues to represent a key growth focus for Air Products. Most recently, the company announced a signed agreement to form a $1.3 billion joint venture, significantly expanding its scope of supply serving Lu’An Mining (Group) Co’s syngas-to-liquids production in Changzhi City, Shanxi Province. It also signed an agreement for a $3.5 billion coal-to-syngas production facility to be built in Yulin City, Shaanxi Province.last_img read more

Top 7 Best Zombie Games on Roblox

first_imgStay on target Roblox 101: How To Make Actual Money In The GameRoblox 101: How To Make Your First Game Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.center_img Last time we covered some of the best superhero games on Roblox so now it’s time for a bit of a change of pace. No matter what type of game you’re looking for, there is undoubtedly something that fits the bit available on the Roblox platform.So if you’re looking for something a little more intense that can really get the blood pumping and the hair standing up on the back of your neck, then look no further than this list of the best zombie games on Roblox. These games won’t compete with the likes of Nazi Zombies in Call of Duty or the Resident Evil games, but they’re not bad for free options.Let’s take a look at the best zombie games on Roblox:AdChoices广告7. Call of Roblox: Zombies by Spooky StudioThe first game we’re talking about for this list is trying to rip off one of the most popular game series on the planet: Call of Duty. With Call of Roblox: Zombies, we’ve got a zombie shooter with a dash of realism. People are still playing this game, even though it’s no longer receiving any updates. 6. Zombie Defense Tycoon by BRIANO10It wouldn’t be a list of Roblox games without at least one tycoon entry, would it? Instead of managing a restaurant or other business like you might in other popular tycoon games on Roblox, Zombie Defense Tycoon has you managing an operation of soldiers, miners, and other characters to fight back against the apocalypse.5. Zombie High School by BobbysayhiOne of the other super popular genres on Roblox are life simulation games. Whether it be simulating life in a big city or just going to school (most Roblox users are still in middle school and high school) they’re always some of the highest grossing and top played games. So naturally sticking a bunch of zombies into a school would make for a good time, right? That’s exactly Zombie High School!4. Humans vs Zombies by GhostInstead of beating around the bush with it, Humans vs Zombies just has a super literal title. You and a bunch of other humans all join forces to face off against the zombie hordes together. With 5 million plays to date and an active community, this is one of the more robust, if generic, zombie games out there.3. Rescue Mission – Zombie Assault by FNACC95Mowing down endless hordes of zombies can get a little old though, to be honest. Killing evil undead can be fun and all, but sometimes it’s better to play the hero. In Rescue Mission – Zombie Assault you get to pilot helicopters down to a deserted island and rescue stranded survivors before they get eaten alive.2. Zombie Attack by wenlocktoad vs indraZombie Attack is one of the most polished Roblox games you can find on the entire platform. It’s a wave-based shooter that you level up in over time in cooperative multiplayer. There are frequent and consistent updates ever since it launched last month and has already amassed well over 44 million visits. That’s crazy.1. Zombie Rush by Beacon StudioHere it is — the best zombie game on all of Roblox. It’s been around longer than most (coming up on five years) and is easily still the most popular with over 230 million visits to date. It’s another wave-based zombie game, similar to Zombie Attack, but with even more content, things to do, and items to collect. You can even turn into a zombie to finish off the remaining survivors once you turn.When you’re done trying not to have your brains eaten (or eating brains yourself) you can hop into something a bit more lighthearted. Roblox has so many games to choose from, including Mario and Pokemon games, or even a variety of racing games. If you’re still not sold, read up on why millions of people can’t stop playing Roblox right here.—David Jagneaux is a tech and gaming journalist with bylines on several prominent media publications such as IGN, Polygon, Playboy, UploadVR, Motherboard, Gamecrate, VICE, GamesMaster Magazine, and many others. He is also the author of The Ultimate Roblox Book, a recently released book for anyone interested in learning more about Roblox and how to get started with building their own worlds. It’s being published by Adams Media and is now available for purchase on Amazon right here, as well as from Barnes & Noble, Walmart, and other select retailers.last_img read more

Not in a nutshell

first_imgNaila manal Nothing matches the experience of watching a movie made on your favourite book, right? You either hate it or love it but you will definitely watch it. To be honest, most of the time, we all end up finding flaws in the movie adaptations and the most common complaint is that the movie skimmed over the details. How many of us have watched the Harry Potter films, and hated the absence of Peeves in the film? Or how they almost omitted the story of Voldemort’s family? Winky? Oh, you wanted a detailed TriWizard tournament or Yule ball, bad luck! But what we forget is that the creators of the films had to choose from a huge amount of matter to make a two-three hour film and even splitting the last book into two movies wasn’t enough! Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’With these thoughts, it was a happy news for me when ABC Family announced that they are going to make a TV series out of the Mortal Instruments book series by Cassandra Clare. The series will be called Shadowhunters, based on  the creatures around whom the story revolves, half humans, half angels. The books aren’t amazing, but good enough (the prequel series Infernal Devices were much better, I feel) but the first attempt at making it into a movie fell flat on its face. The movie, Mortal Instruments: City of Bones was well, disappointing to say the least. The characters were half baked, Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflixthe plot changed, and the casting wasn’t appealing.Now that it is being reincarnated into a series one can hope for better, detailed insight in the lives of Shadowhunters. A TV series is any day more appealing than a film. For something like The Hunger Games or The Divergent books, a movie series would do because of the limited content but as far as the readers are concerned, one would always go for a TV series say for instance in a book like A song of Ice and Fire which was made into the epic drama Game of Thrones. Sherlock, House of Cards are all great examples of how book to TV series adaptation is a brilliant idea! Of course, it will be a treat for sure if somehow someday decide to make a TV Series out of the Harry Potter books. But till then, I will be watching out for Shadowhunters.

Scientists conduct study on habitat of Indian grey wolf

first_imgKolkata: A team of scientists from Zoological Survey of India (ZSI) have categorically demonstrated the importance and maintenance of probable suitable areas for Indian grey wolf (Canis lupus pallipes) along with its landscape connectivity between Chotta Nagpur Plateau and Lower Gangetic Planes. The study titled “Identifying suitable habitat and corridor for Indian Grey Wolf in Chotta Nagpur Plateau and Lower Gangetic Planes” that has recently been published in the reputed journal PlosOne assumes significance as wolves are suffering from loss of habitat and loss of connectivity in the landscape. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataIndian Grey Wolf is known to be distributed in the vast areas of the Indian subcontinent. However, the actual population estimates are available only for Gujarat, Karnataka, Rajasthan and Bihar. Its distribution, population and habitat ecology are concentrated in the eastern region. Out of the total area, which is 4,16,665 km2, only about 18,237 km2 that is 4.37 percent was found to be highly suitable while 3,16, 803 km2 that is 76.03 percent was found to be least suitable. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateThis report underscores the vital corridor between the different patches of habitats connectivity which was highest in the border line area of the two biotic provinces located in the south-eastern zone via districts of Purba Singhbhum and Paschim Singhbhum of Jharkhand and Bankura and West Midnapore districts of Bengal. Among the Protected Areas (PAs), natural corridors were found to connect the Simlipal National Park, Satkosia Wildlife Sanctuary, Dalma ranges of Chotta Nagpur plateau along with Badrama , Khulasuni and Debrigarh wildlife sanctuaries. Wolf is a species that does not require deep forest cover it can live in depleted forest cover. Indian wolves are classed as endangered with its decreasing population. These animals are capable of living in areas of human habitation. “We strongly propose changes in the National Working Plan Code 2014 (NWPC 2014) guidelines so that the wildlife management components could be given enough space in the document. Further, we also suggest the participation of local community in management planning should take centre stage so that the biological functionality of the identified wolf corridors in the landscape can be maintained for the long-term genetic viability of wolves. The capacity enhancement and mass awareness creation among the local communities will minimise wolf-human conflict and also it will be helpful in developing compassionate attitude among the local residents towards the species in the region,” said Dr Lalit Kumar Sharma, of ZSI who led the study. Researchers Tanoy Mukherjee and Phakir Chandra Saren were also involved in the study that was conducted under supervision and guidance of ZSI director Kailash Chandra.last_img read more

The mid-level SPECT camera offers a cost-effective option that allows customers the flexibility to purchase SPECT now and add CT later. The transition involves a simple upgrade without a change to the room size or power requirements.SPECT/CT has long been utilized in cardiac studies, but with Philips’ upgraded BrightView XCT there is promise for applications in orthopedic studies, which is a field that typically relies heavily on X-ray imaging. At SNM 2009, Philips is showing the first SPECT/CT hybrid system to address physicians’ needs for high-quality localization and attenuation correction with a flat-panel CT, while still allowing for patient dose reduction and increased diagnostic confidence, the company said.To improve image registration, Philips BrightView XCT uses a co-planar design that allows the acquisition of SPECT and CT with minimal table movement between scans in most cases. Reducing movement, along with the system’s wide-open gantry and large bore, contribute to improved patient comfort. Flexible breathing protocols also set it apart from other systems by allowing patients to breath normally during both SPECT and CT scans.Along with the addition of the new Nuclear Medicine Application Suite on the Extended Brilliance Workstation, nuclear medicine is now available with the BrightView XCT; SPECT, PET and CT processing can all be accessed on one common platform, helping to speed diagnosis and streamline workflow. The BrightView XCT is a general purpose nuclear medicine SPECT/CT camera that was introduced at last year’s SNM, but is being shown with expanded applications in orthopedics at this year’s SNM conference.Philips is also introducing the third-generation Time-of-Flight platform for oncology on its GEMINI TF PET/CT. Time-of-flight technology measures the actual time difference between the detection of coincident gamma rays for more accurate localization, producing a higher quality image and allowing for lower tracer dose amounts in patients and shorter imaging times. According to Philips, the system is the first commercial PET/CT scanner to break the 500 Pico-second barrier, with the speed to measure a photon within seven centimeters accuracy traveling seven times around the earth in a single second.Philips newest Time-of-Flight system, which was launched at SNM 2008, the GEMINI TF Big Bore PET/CT, is specifically designed for radiation oncologists and their patients. The Big Bore offers excellent lesion detection for diagnosis and staging with Philips revolutionary TruFlight Time-of-Flight PET technology. The system has been installed at three sites throughout the U.S., including the first installation at a proton therapy center at the University of Pennsylvania.For more information: www.philips.com/newscenter FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | PET-CT | June 19, 2019 United Imaging Announces First U.S. Clinical Install of uMI 550 Digital PET/CT United Imaging announced the first U.S. clinical installation of the uMI 550 Digital positron emission tomography/… read more Feature | Advanced Visualization | July 02, 2019 | By Jeff Zagoudis Augmented Reality Versus 3-D Printing for Radiology Three-dimensional (3-D) printing and… read more center_img News | Advanced Visualization | July 03, 2019 TeraRecon Unveils iNtuition AI Data Extractor Artificial Intelligence (AI) and advanced visualization company TeraRecon announced its new iNtuition AI Data Extractor… read more A 3-D printed model (left) and a model constructed in augmented reality (right), both of a kidney with a tumor.

FDA approves new heart failure pill from Novartis

first_img 5 treatments for adult scoliosis It costs the global economy an estimated $108 billion annually, so prevention is a key goal for health care providers.For most patients, heart failure is a chronic condition, caused by high blood pressure or other factors damaging heart muscle. Symptoms include breathlessness, fatigue and fluid retention. That keeps many patients homebound and causes repeated emergency department visits, often in the middle of the night, due to infections or just straying from a low-salt diet.The FDA approved the drug under its priority review program, which accelerates review for drugs that treat serious diseases or offer a significant improvement over older drugs. The agency approved another heart failure from Amgen Inc. in April. That drug, Corlanor, was the first new FDA-approved medication for heart failure to launch in the U.S. in a dozen years.Entresto combines Novartis’ off-patent, blood pressure treatment Diovan with a new drug that decreases certain heart-damaging proteins in the blood.Novartis-based Basel studied its drug in more than 8,000 patients with reduced heart pumping ability. Patients taking the drug experienced fewer hospitalizations for heart failure and death from heart disease than patients taking an older heart drug, known as an ACE inhibitor.

Ocwens Ratings Revised from Stable to Positive

first_img September 15, 2015 457 Views Ocwen’s Ratings Revised from ‘Stable’ to ‘Positive’ Fitch Ratings Ocwen Financial Corporation Positive Stable 2015-09-15 derektempleton Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC recently received an upgrade in their rating outlook from stable to positive due to stronger risk management framework and management oversight, according to a Servicer Report from Fitch Ratings.In February 2015, Ocwen experienced rating downgrades to stable due to weak corporate governance and operational control framework. However, in June 2015, the company’s ratings were pushed up to positive as Ocwen strengthened their risk management framework and management oversight.Among the ratings, which were all labeled as RPS4 were: Primary Prime, Primary Alt-A, Primary Subprime, Primary HELOC, and Specialty Closed-End Second Lien.One of the key rating drivers was Ocwen’s commitment to alleviate governance and operational control weaknesses within the company, which include changes to its “three lines of defense” approach to risk management, expansion of regulatory compliance and compliance testing departments, and completion of a risk and control self-assessment (RCSA) process.Another contributor to Ocwen’s rating change was a shift in focus to PLS servicing, where the company initiated a strategy to sell off a large portion of it mortgage servicing rights (MSRs). The company has closed or entered agreements to sell MSRs on about $90 billon in unpaid balance (UPB) of performing agency loans.Fitch also reported that Ocwen’s use of a highly integrated technology environment and concentration on off-shore servicing operations were also major contributors to the upgrade.Although Ocwen’s servicing operation has grown more than 300 percent in the past serveral years, their portfolio continues to decrease. Fitch found that the company has serviced 2,361,220 loans totaling $376.6 billion including 1,252,409 totaling $195.6 billion in non-agency residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) transactions as of March 31, 2015.Ocwen’s portfolio also includes 3.9 percent non-agency first lien prime, 8.1 percent first lien Alt-A, 28.6 percent first lien subprime, 1.7 percent HELOC, and 2.0 percent closed-end second liens by loan count.Click here to view Fitch Ratings’ complete Servicer Report.center_img Share in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Servicinglast_img read more

first_imgDoes Skyscanner keep any record of my flights or payment details?No. We pass you through to the airline or travel agent whom you book directly with, so we never see or deal with your payment or flight details. Skyscanner never has any access to them and therefore, we cannot store or keep a record of any of your information.If I don’t receive my booking confirmation what should I do?Don’t panic! It’s worth remembering that although flight tickets are usually issued on the same day, some travel agents may take longer. But before you pen an anxious email or pick up the phone to the travel operator you booked with, try checking your junk mail folder: sometimes unrecognised messages can be placed there by your email provider. And if you’re not sure who your booking is with then try finding your online bank statement, which should have the flight provider’s name next to any charge. If you still can’t find your confirmation then contact the travel provider you booked with. If you’re struggling to get through to them then get in touch with us, but as we don’t process your booking we won’t be able to issue your booking confirmation or tickets. If I need to make changes to my booking what should I do?We recommend you get in touch with the travel agent directly regarding changing or cancelling your flights. Skyscanner isn’t able to change or cancel your booking.What happens if my flight is cancelled?Cancellations occasionally occur, usually when the airline of travel agent is unable to fulfil a ticket at their advertised price, or if the airline makes a decision to cancel that flight or route. If this happens, the airline or travel agent will give you the option to purchase a ticket at the new price or refund your money in full. Cancelled bookings are beyond Skyscanner’s control because we are a travel search engine, rather than a booking service Therefore, we suggest you speak to your travel provider directly with regards to the options that might be available. If you’re finding it difficult to get through to them then drop us a line, but again, we may not be able to help you as we do not handle any bookings – but we’ll try our best!
