German site maintains World Heritage status – UNESCO

4 July 2008The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Committee announced that that Dresden Elbe Valley will retain its status, voicing hope that construction of a four-lane bridge on the German site will be halted and any damage reversed. The Committee – whose annual meeting kicked off yesterday in Quebec, Canada – said it regretted the building of the bridge, calling on authorities to create a tunnel instead. It noted that if the bridge construction is not stopped and undo any damage caused, the property, which is on the Danger List, would be taken off the World Heritage List next year.Given current legal proceedings in Germany, the group decided to give the Dresden Elbe Valley more time to allow opposition to bridge construction to succeed, despite its decision last year to remove it from the World Heritage List.About 18 kilometres long, the Dresden Elbe Valley site was inscribed in 2004 for its “outstanding cultural landscape,” which brings together a combination of baroque and other historic buildings and landscape features in and around the city of Dresden into a parkland setting along the river.Currently there are 851 sites of “outstanding universal value” in 141 countries that have been inscribed on the World Heritage List, and each year sites are added after applications are first reviewed by either the International Council on Monuments and Sites or the International Union for Conservation of Nature. read more

Michigan tops Ohio State 7060 ends Buckeyes 3game winning streak

Junior forward Sam Thompson dunks the ball after an alley-oop. OSU lost to Michigan, 70-60, Feb. 11 at The Schottenstein Center. Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorAfter slugging through a forgetful January in which they lost five of seven games, the Ohio State Buckeyes came into a showdown with No. 15 Michigan on a three-game winning streak, threatening to get back into the thick of the Big Ten race.They left the Schottenstein Center Tuesday still on the outside looking in on the Big Ten’s best, falling to the Wolverines, 70-60.Led by 15 points from sophomore guard Nik Stauskas, Michigan (18-6, 10-2) came back from an early 10-point deficit to win.“Every loss hurts. Obviously you can’t get comfortable and we found a way to play tough on the road for a couple games and we came home and got one and today we didn’t have it,” senior guard Aaron Craft said after the loss. “We have six games left, so as much as this may hurt, we have to move forward. We have to find a way to continue to get better because nothing’s guaranteed and there’s still a lot to play for.”The Buckeyes (19-6, 6-6) got off to a fast start, as back-to-back dunks by junior forwards Sam Thompson and LaQuinton Ross gave OSU an 11-5 lead with 15:26 left in the first half.Ross had the hot hand early, nailing his first five shots from the field on his way to 13 first half points.After Michigan freshman guard Zak Irvin hit two of three free throws to make the score 21-16 with 7:49 left in the opening half, OSU extended its lead to 10 with an acrobatic layup by junior center Amir Williams and a deep 3-pointer from the wing by senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr.Michigan responded, though, using an 8-0 run near the end of the half to stay close. Two free throws from Ross with less than two seconds left gave the Buckeyes a 30-26 lead at the break.After Stauskas nailed a 3-pointer on the first possession of the second half, OSU proceeded to go on a 7-0 run aided by another 3-pointer by Smith Jr.Michigan was able to stay close though, and took a 44-43 lead after two free throws by Stauskas.OSU cut Michigan’s lead to 51-50 following a free throw by Ross, but Michigan gathered an offensive rebound on three straight possessions, helping the Wolverines get back a six point lead.Thompson got another dunk in transition, but with the lead cut to four, Williams missed the front end of a one-and-one with 3:09 to go.Michigan sophomore forward Glenn Robinson III then hit a 3-pointer in the corner to make the score 59-52.Williams then fouled freshman guard Derrick Walton Jr. on a 3-pointer with 1:54 remaining as the shot clock expired, negating the slim hopes the Buckeyes had to get back in the game. Walton Jr. made all three free throws, and a miss on the other end by OSU forced the Buckeyes to foul to stop the clock.But Michigan made eight free throws in final 1:32 to ice the game.“I thought at times we played some pretty good basketball, but we hit that stretch as we did in some of those games in January where we took our foot — I don’t want to say we took our foot off the gas — but we played hard but we weren’t as sharp execution-wise as we needed to be,” OSU coach Thad Matta said after the game.Ross led the way for OSU with a game-high 24 points on 8-17 shooting, while Smith Jr. chipped in 13 of his own.After the game Ross said even though it was a tough loss, he thinks his teammates will be able to bounce back.“We’ve got a tough group of guys. I think everybody’s going to come in when we go back to practice with a different mentality and they know that we’ve got another game,” Ross said. “Guys will be down about it tonight but we’ve gotta look forward. We’ve got six games left in the Big Ten so we’ve gotta be ready for those.”Up next, OSU is slated to travel to Champaign, Ill., Saturday to take on the Fighting Illini. Tipoff is set for 8 p.m. read more

Anthony Greco excelling with chance to lead Ohio State mens hockey offense

Junior forward Anthony Greco (44) chases the puck during a game against Michigan on Jan. 16 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU lost, 10-6.Kelly Roderick / Lantern photographerAfter scoring only 10 goals in 53 games entering the 2014-15 season, Ohio State men’s hockey’s Anthony Greco aimed for a breakout year.“You have to get bigger, faster and stronger every year in the summertime, but the big thing for me coming off the past two years was I just had to get to a better place mentally,” the junior forward said.Greco started his hockey career in his hometown of Queens, N.Y., where he played for the Long Island Royals. He was quickly recruited at age 12, by the late J.P. Parise, to play for Shattuck-St. Mary’s in Faribault, Minn., alma mater of NHL superstars like Jonathan Toews, Sidney Crosby and Zach Parise, J.P.’s son.He excelled at Shattuck, and was recruited into the United States Hockey League his junior year. Greco started to shine as a player while playing for the Des Moines Buccaneers, under coach Regg Simon, before moving on to OSU.“Anthony’s greatest asset is he has the elite level of speed,” Simon said. “When he’s playing fast and using his speed to attack defensemen, it creates opportunities for himself and his teammates.”But Greco’s freshman year with the Buckeyes did not go according to plan.“Six games into the season I was out with a high ankle sprain,” Greco said. “I was out for 11-12 weeks, it was miserable because I felt like I was finally getting used to the level of play at college.”For Greco, missing out in the games meant he was missing out on the opportunity to bond with his teammates on and off the ice.“I missed so many road trips and things that are important for freshmen to get involved in, I never really got my full freshman experience,” Greco said.Coming back from the injury he struggled to click with the team again.“I came back behind, I was never really able to establish anything,” Greco said.Now in his junior year, Greco’s mentality has changed.It all started with a number.“I was 44 my freshman year, then changed to 14 (then back to 44), so it was kind of a joke. It was like pick a number and stick with it, enough with the changing,” Greco said. “I always joke around that 44 makes me look a little bit bigger on the ice, too.”Greco quickly showed that his bigger number was going to lead to a bigger personality on the ice, as he scored his first career hat trick against then-No. 4 Providence in OSU’s season-opening win.Twenty-five games later, Greco has taken the reigns of the offense, with 14 goals and two hat tricks so far this season.Greco also strives to be the go-to guy in the offense, he said.“I like the responsibility. I think I play better when that’s the mentality. That’s how it was for me in juniors. Having confidence and believing in yourself is really the key,” he said.Greco said most of his confidence comes from his teammates.Senior captain Tanner Fritz and Greco have had the most chemistry on offense throughout the season and have become the go-to line for offensive production.“Playing with a guy like Tanner Fritz, who is so good at controlling the puck and making plays, I am able to work well off that and it sets me up for success,” Greco said.With Fritz and Greco receiving playing time on the ice together last year, the two already had harmony as a unit.“I love playing with him (Greco). Last year we built some chemistry, he’s fun to play with, he’s probably one of the fastest guys in college hockey, so it’s more so about me trying to keep up with him,” Fritz said.With the Buckeyes struggling to maintain consistency throughout their season, Greco’s success has been undercut.“I mean, you look at the Michigan game, where it might have been a good night for me initially with three goals,” Greco said. “But then you lose 10-6 and then those goals don’t amount up to anything.”Greco said even though the Buckeyes have struggled, it’s important for each player to do his part for the team.“You can’t control everything,” Greco said. “You have to really hone in, do your job, get rid of the distractions and just be a leader on the ice.”Going into the final games of the season, the Buckeyes are looking to gain some winning momentum and some confidence.“It’s most important for us to start having that mentality now and kind of gain the confidence and gain that swagger,” Greco said.Greco and the Buckeyes will look to gain that swagger in a home-and-home series against the Michigan Wolverines on Friday in Columbus at 7 p.m. and Sunday in Ann Arbor at 5 p.m. read more

Doodle un hommage en noir et blanc à Louis Daguerre inventeur de

first_imgDoodle : un hommage en noir et blanc à Louis Daguerre, inventeur de la photographieEn ce 18 novembre, Google a choisi de rendre hommage à un artiste français de génie qui a su marquer son temps. Louis Daguerre, né il y a tout juste 224 ans, est considéré aujourd’hui comme l’un des inventeurs de la photographie. Quiconque se rendra aujourd’hui sur la page d’accueil de Google, découvrira que le géant a une nouvelle fois décidé de changer son logo en un Doodle inédit : un cadre en bois, une photo en noir et blanc, des lettres incarnés par des personnages sortant tout droit d’un autre siècle… C’est aujourd’hui à Louis Daguerre, né le 18 novembre 1787, que Google a décidé de rendre hommage. Ce nom ne vous dit peut-être rien mais cet artiste français passionné de peintures et d’images est pourtant considéré comme l’un des inventeurs de la photographie. C’est en 1826, alors que Louis Daguerre n’a pas encore 30 ans que cette aventure commence. Grâce à un ami commun, le jeune peintre fait la connaissance de Joseph Nicéphore Niépce qui poursuit à cette époque des recherches sur la capture des images et crée en 1827 la toute première photographie. Or, si Niépce est au début quelque peu réticent à partager ses secrets avec l’artiste français, ils finissent en 1829 par signer un contrat d’association destiné à améliorer le procédé mis au point par Niépce en y ajoutant les perfectionnements de Daguerre. Une collaboration qui fonctionne plutôt bien et pousse le peintre à débuter des travaux sur l’utilisation de substances chimiques. Une invention majeure : le daguerréotype Dès 1829, il utilise ainsi l’iode comme agent sensibilisateur sur une plaque de cuivre recouverte d’une couche d’argent. Des recherches qu’il poursuit même après la mort de Niépce en 1833. Au fil des années, Louis Daguerre perfectionne peu à peu sa technique de développement mais aussi de fixation d’images, en découvrant notamment que la vapeur de mercure agit comme révélateur. En 1837, nait alors une invention qui marquera son temps : le daguerréotype qui est l’un des premiers procédés photographiques à enregistrer et à afficher l’image de façon permanente. De plus, il nécessite un temps d’exposition d’environ vingt à trente minutes, tandis que plusieurs heures étaient nécessaires dans les méthodes précédentes.À lire aussiSaurez-vous reconnaitre à quel objet du quotidien appartiennent ces gros plans ?Très rapidement, l’invention fait parler d’elle et suscite un vif engouement du public en France, puis en Europe et dans le monde entier Durant une dizaine d’années, la commercialisation des chambres et du matériel fait la fortune de Louis Daguerre, pendant que celui-ci vaque à d’autres occupations. En 1842, il connait ainsi un grand succès avec le Diorama, un spectacle qu’il conçoit avec son associé Charles Marie Boulon. Ce divertissement théâtral est composé de grandes toiles translucides peintes en trompe-l’oeil et qui “s’animent” différemment en fonction de l’éclairage auquel elles sont exposées, passant du jour à la nuit, d’un climat à l’autre, etc.Louis Daguerre est mort le 10 juillet 1851 à l’âge de 63 ans mais son oeuvre reste dans les mémoires, tandis que son nom est aujourd’hui inscrit sur la tour Eiffel, comme celui de 71 autres savants.

Review Denmark – France

first_imgDenmark and France played the first goalless draw of the 2018 World Cup.TEAM NEWS // #DENFRAThoughts on the selection? #WorldCup— FIFA World Cup (@FIFAWorldCup) June 26, 2018Martin Braithwaite was very active at the start of the match in Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium. In the 15th minute, Schmeichel made a save on an effort by Olivier Giroud that was likely going over the bar. The Leicester keeper didn’t take any chances and punched the ball into a corner kick. In the meantime, Peru took the lead against Australia, which was good news for the Danes, who looked calm anyway. Since a tie was all they needed to stay second, Age Hareide’s men were waiting for France to make a move, giving away possession in the process.In the 29th minute, N’Golo Kante’s rare lost ball gave Denmark a quick counter attack. Cornelius saw Eriksen making a run and sent a through ball inside the penalty area. Mandanda, Eriksen and Lucas Hernandez all came to it simultaneously and the goalkeeper managed to prevent any potential danger with his body. A couple of minutes later, Ousmane Dembele faked out one defender and then fired a shot that went wide of Schmeichel’s net. Deschamps’ experimental lineup didn’t look convincing, but it was doing what was asked from the coach, which was keep a clean sheet. We went to the half-time break goalless and hopeless that we’ll see a fun game.Benjamin Mendy made his World Cup debut in the 50th minute when he came in to replace Lucas Hernandez. Ten minutes later, Hareide made his first switch, which was Viktor Fischer for Pione Sisto. Denmark was a bit more active than in the first half, but the overall objective remained unchanged. The next substitution came in the 68th minute when Nabil Fekir replaced Antoine Griezmann. There were more fouls and interruptions of play than there were shots on goal. Nzonzi and Kante were tasked with keeping Eriksen at bay. The sacrifice was creativity in attack. In the 75th minute, another change. This time it was 20-year-old Ajax center forward Kasper Dolberg who took Andreas Cornelius’ place in the lineup.Whistles could be heard from around the filled Luzhniki Stadium, as the fans of both sides were unhappy with the display. Who would be? Kasper Schmeichel had to do a bit of stretch work when saving Nabil Fekir’s curled effort from outside the box. With ten minutes left to play, Deschamps introduced Kylian Mbappe. The youngster tried to make an impact, but it was too little too late. Draw was what the coaches wanted and draw was what they got.last_img read more

Dynam Japan revenues continue to stabilize as pachinko focus turns to entertainment

first_imgLeading Japanese pachinko hall operator Dynam Japan has recorded a slight 1.2% increase in revenue in the three months to 30 June 2019 as recent changes to its business model start to take effect.Dynam reported revenue of JPY36.3 billion (US$334.2 million) in the quarter, up from JPY35.9 billion thanks to a 4.1% increase in gross pay-ins at its low playing cost halls to JPY83.2 billion (US$766.1 million). The company had converted three of its high cost halls to low cost during the past year. Gross pay-ins at high playing cost halls fell 3.5% to JPY105.3 billion (US$969.6 million), reflecting a reduction in the number of high playing cost halls from 180 to 176 (including one closure).Dynam has been actively looking to revitalize its pachinko business by changing its focus from high playing cost halls to low playing cost halls and targeting entertainment over volatility.In a previous statement issued earlier this year, the company stated its vision to “reinvent pachinko gaming as a form of everyday entertainment that everyone can easily enjoy, as a regional infrastructure.“To realize everyday entertainment, we must manage our business so that our customers consider the time and money they spend in our halls are at acceptable levels for everyday entertainment. Therefore, the Group practices chain store management as one of its management policies.“Managing our pachinko halls at low cost leaves space to enable us to entertain customers with low playing cost games, which in turn leads to the realizing of everyday entertainment.”last_img read more

Business objectivesBuild and develop a highly motivated, skilled and stable workforce within a culture of empowerment, openness and trust.Invest for the long term in leading-edge and energy-efficient technologies.Work in partnership with customers to better meet consumer needs into the future. Career historyKen Martin, group benefits manager, joined Oscar Mayer in 2001. Prior to this he worked for HSA (now Simply Health). When Martin first joined Oscar Mayer, he was tasked with sourcing bespoke benefits for the employees that were not available outside of the organisation. “The biggest thing I’m proud of is that I’ve managed to develop a scheme from an initial idea, and seeing it grow, negotiating exclusive benefits,” he says. “The biggest plus was when we were shortlisted for an Employee Benefits Award [in 2008].”center_img With job roles ranging from new product development through to cooking and food preparation, Oscar Mayer recognises the importance of having a benefits approach that holds a universal appeal for all employees.The food production organisation supplies prepared food to major supermarkets in the UK, operating from three main locations: Oscar Mayer in Chard, Somerset; Ferndale Foods in Erith, Kent; and Rowan Foods in Wrexham.The nature of the business means that with such different job specifications, employee numbers can fluctuate. However, of its 2,300 employees, 1,700 of those are members of the organisation’s Millie benefits club.The Millie benefits club was formed in 2000, initially named Millenium benefits scheme, and was launched by owner John Bigwood. Bigwood’s vision was to set up a benefits scheme that applied to everybody. As well as the name change to Millie, the scheme has evolved over the years to ensure that it stays true to its original intention.The scheme gives employees access to a range of benefits. In 2013, it evolved to include an online portal, administered by Edenred, which provides staff with shopping discounts in addition to healthcare benefits.Diverse workforceThe organisation recognises the importance of providing a benefits scheme that will appeal to everyone and that offers value for money. The scheme costs employees £2.25 a week, and has remained at this rate for 14 years.Ken Martin, group benefits manager, says: “We don’t want to make the scheme so complicated that it doesn’t work. We also try to make sure that the scheme is driven by the membership; we always go via works councils and focus groups to find out what employees want. It’s interesting because you get some really good leads and feedback.”With a multi-cultural workforce, it is important that the benefits scheme is well communicated to employees. “My job is to make sure that I can communicate and create benefits to help reduce staff turnover,” says Martin. “I think that’s the biggest challenge. The food industry isn’t synonymous with employee benefits, but here we do try to push the scheme. It’s very much driven by the people.”As part of that communications approach, Martin makes himself accessible to all employees that may have questions about the scheme. “One of the big things with the Millie [scheme] is that people can contact me if they have a problem. We have works councils and we also have a Workplace Improvement Forum. We also have focus groups. Each site has its own in-house newsletter, so we have regular information on that.”Oscar Mayer also ensures that staff are kept up to date and informed about the benefits on offer by bringing benefits to the workplace through events such as provider roadshows. “If we have a new provider that comes on board, one of the stipulations is that it carries out regular on-site visits or roadshows,” says Martin.Employee health focusA key element of the Millie scheme is its focus on healthcare and wellbeing, including membership of a Bupa-provided health cash plan. Employees can also include cover for their family at no extra cost.In 2015, to celebrate the 15-year anniversary of the Millie club, Oscar Mayer ran a series of events, which included a benefits roadshow and competitions. It also introduced five new options to its health cash plan, including a flu jab, hospital stays, and increased its chiropody benefit by 25%.Its focus on health and wellbeing has seen the introduction of healthcare professional on-site visits, for example, osteopaths, chiropodists and chiropractors. “I’m trying to expand the on-site healthcare because our philosophy has always been that we want to bring benefits to the workplace,” says Martin. “So for a lot of our people, if they want to see a healthcare professional during work time, they can claim their money back. It’s a bit of a one-stop-shop.”Many of the roles at Oscar Mayer involve employees standing on their feet for a lengthy period of time, for example, on the production line of meal preparation. “A lot of our people are on their feet all day, so one of the big things is that the professionals highlight any reoccurring problems so that we can look at why that’s happening,” says Martin. “It’s much more convenient to do it this way.”Employees are able to claim back the cost of the appointment with the healthcare professional through the health cash plan.The organisation also recognises that the wellbeing of employees is paramount: staff have access to the Grocery Aid helpline, a benevolent fund for the grocery industry. It offers support to employees through counselling on issues such as finance, debt or bereavement, for example.The future challenges for Oscar Mayer involve measures to ensure that the Millie Benefits Club remains a relevant and valuable benefit for its diverse workforce, through the development of the benefits website to bring clarity to employees.Oscar Mayer at a glanceOscar Mayer is a family-run organisation that makes and develops prepared foods for major UK supermarkets. It operates from three main sites: Ferndale Foods in Erith; Rowan Foods in Wrexham; and Oscar Mayer in Chard.The organisation’s history dates back to 1935 when the Bigwood family opened its first butcher shop in south London.Oscar Mayer has around 2,300 employees, working in roles that include new product development and food cooking and preparation.last_img read more

Even the walls of Chittagong jail ask for money

first_imgThe main entrance of Chittagong Central Jail. Photo: Prothom AloA singara costs five to ten taka at any food stall or restaurant. The same snack costs Tk 60 at the canteen of Chittagong Central Jail.An inmate in the prison has to pay for every service – from medical treatment to a place to sleep. Money can even arrange ‘special meetings’ between a prisoner and his family and friends.Prothom Alo investigations found that a prisoner pays Tk 20 for an onion and Tk 60 taka for a cigarette, almost six times higher than the going rate.The officials and staff involved in these scams earn more than Tk 700,000 a month from canteen sales alone. And they earn up to Tk 2.2 by arranging ‘special meetings’ with visitors.A visitor has to pay Tk 1,500 to meet the prisoner in the office room as the mesh in the visitors’ room is too thick to look through clearly. Over 50 visitors come to the jail daily.At the prison hospital, a patient has to pay Tk 6000 to lie on the floor and Tk 12,000 for a bed. Also, a patient has to pay Tk 10,000-12,000 to stay in the ‘special ward’ for a month.The total ‘income’ from the prisoners in the jail hospitals is over Tk 2 million. The monthly ‘income’ from the three sectors is about Tk 4.9 million. However, it often fluctuates.The prison has a capacity of 1,853 inmates but over 9,000 prisoners stay there on an average.In March, a report by the home ministry identified 49 jail officials jail involved in the corruption. The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has begun investigating the matter following directives from the ministry.ACC questioned 39 of the officials last month.Arranging ‘special meetings’A certain Salauddin from Kulgaon in the city went to visit his brother in jail, but failed to do so as he could not pay Tk 1,500 for the office room. Expressing his disappointment, he told Prothom Alo, “Even the prison walls ask for money.”Salauddin’s allegations match the findings of the report submitted in March by the inquiry committee constituted by the home ministry.Incidentally, the jailer of the prison Sohel Rana Biswas was arrested on 26 October last year with Tk 4.4 million and the Deputy Inspector General (DIG-Prisons) Partha Gopal Banik with Tk 8 million nine months after the incident.The ACC arrested DIG Partha on 28 July while searching the sources of his wealth.Senior jail superintendent Prashanta Kumar Banik and jail superintendent Sohel Rana Biswas were his close aides.ACC questioned Prashanta Kumar Banik, currently serving in Barishal, at its headquarters on 8 August.The Prothom Alo correspondent found the iron lattice in the prison meeting room is quite thick. It was almost impossible to see though or hear the person on the other sides. The corrupt officials and staff use this to make ‘special arrangements’ in the prison office room in exchange of money.A certain Md Aslam, sitting in front of the jail gate on 10 June, was talking to the families of some of the prisoner. In the meantime a woman emerged from the prison office room and handed over Tk 2,000 taka to him.When the correspondent spoke to Aslam about arranging a meeting with a certain prisoner, he asked for Tk 3,000.Aslam said, there would be an official inside who would arrange the meeting. He was also seen in front of the meeting room taking money from people on 19 June.Senior caretaker of Chittagong Central Jail, Kamal Hossain, claimed that meetings used to be held the office room, but no longer.No place to sleepNew prisoners are kept at the ‘amdani ward’ (for new ‘imports’ or inmates) upon their arrival. They are transferred to other wards the next day, based on the amount of money they pay. Several older prisoners – Md Parvez, Md Nazrul, Md Yunus, Md Matin, Md Shahid, Md Zahir and Delwar – control the dealings.The prisoners can get a place to sleep if they pay them Tk 500 to Tk 3000.A rickshaw puller, arrested for yaba possession, is in prison. In presence of the police, he told Prothom Alo at the Chattogram court lock-up that he was kept there next to the toilets of the Karnaphuli ward as he could not pay any money.It is the same for all the poor prisoners like him.Watery dal, rotten veggiesThe prisoners said the vegetables they get are mostly rotten, the dal (lentils) is tasteless and watery, they get bones instead of any meat, and a very small piece of fish.A recently released prisoner, Md Ripon, said such food was hardly edible and they were forced to buy costly food from the canteen at a high price. A piece of chicken costs Tk 80 at the jail canteen which is at best Tk 40 outside.Prices were lowered after the current jailer Nasir Ahmed took charge. It was much higher when Sohel Rana was in charge.Jail super Md Kamal Hossain said there’s no scope of charging high prices at the canteen.He told Prothom Alo that he was not aware of what happened earlier.No place in the jail hospitalThis correspondent talked to 10 prisoners who were freed from the jail a month ago. They alleged whereas the poor and sick prisoners do not get any chance for treatment at the jail hospital, political leaders and rich inmates would remain there even if they were not sick.When high-ups visit the jail, the jail authorities remove the prisoners who stay in the hospital in disguise of patients, they said.The inquiry committee, formed by the home ministry, found evidence of corruption by 49 officials including the jail hospital’s assistant surgeon Mostafizur Rahman and pharmacist Ruhul Amin.After visiting the jail at the end of last month, ACC director Mohammad Yusuf said the jail officials earn around four million taka a month illegally.Former Deputy Inspector General of Prisons (DIG-Prisons) Shamsul Haider Siddique told Prothom Alo that these illegal earnings won’t stop unless honest, efficient and responsible officers are appointed.*The report, published in print edition of Prothom Alo, has been rewritten in English by Farjana Liakat and Shameem Rezalast_img read more

Researchers at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden used Sectra’s Digital X-ray Radiogrammetry (DXR) method to identify patients who subsequently suffered a hip fracture.The study of 8,257 patients showed the bone mineral density (BMD) is lower in those who suffered from a hip fracture later on. The company’s DXR is an automated method for estimating the distal forearm cortical BMD from a standard X-ray. A hand X-ray image is taken and then sent to Sectra’s online lab for analysis.The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the method for use as a medical device.Osteoporosis is an under-diagnosed and under-treated disease. According to a report from the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions, only 14 percent of patients with a fracture are treated for osteoporosis, while 60 to 70 percent are targeted for treatment.Despite first fracture being a strong indicator of future osteoporotic fractures, only 10 to 20 percent of these patients are prescribed treatment. Convenient tools and systematic ways of working are key to the detection of the disease. Today, the majority of all radiology images are digital and there is thus huge potential to reduce future costs through a structured osteoporosis prevention program.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 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 News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more News | Neuro Imaging | August 16, 2019 ADHD Medication May Affect Brain Development in Children A drug used to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) appears to affect development of the brain’s… read more News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | August 07, 2019 Contrast Use in First Transthoracic Echocardiogram for Heart Failure Reduces Repeat Testing Heart failure is the fourth most common cause for all admission to U.S. hospitals, and it is the most common reason for… read more News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more Videos | Radiographic Fluoroscopy (RF) | August 09, 2019 VIDEO: Demonstration of the Shimadzu FluoroSpeed X1 Radiographic Fluoroscopy System Shimadzu displayed the FluoroSpeed X1 conventional radiographic fluoroscopy (RF) system at the Association for Medica read more last_img read more

ward off Dementors the dark creatures that feed off human happiness It’s one of the most complex spells in the wizarding world and in order to conjure a Patronus a wizard needs to draw upon his most powerful happy memory The Charm conjures a magical guardian in the shape of the animal with whom the witch or wizard shares the greatest affinity Rowling’s response may point to the fact that the spell is simply too difficult for Hagrid who was expelled from Hogwarts as a teenager to perform But fans were also worried that the lovable half-giant abandoned by his mother as a child may just not
