Morocco Aims High With Aspirations for Rural Development

Rabat – The Standing Committee on Advanced Regionalization and Rural and Territorial Development, working under the Economic, Social and Environmental Council (EESC), presented a draft report titled “Rural Development: Challenges and Prospects” in Rabat on Thursday.The methodology adopted for the preparation of this report consists of an analysis of the current state of rural development.The EESC recommended the formulation of a new national vision for the development of rural and mountain areas. The vision would call for the collaborative efforts of various agencies and involve the  incorporation of  human, economic, social, environmental and cultural concerns into a plan of action.   According to the report presented by the Council, this 2030-2050 vision should guide all the development processes of the territory, namely for the region, the province and the rural communities.In the same context, the EESC proposed setting up an administrative body dedicated to the development of rural and mountain areas. This body would be tasked with the following responsibilities: coordinating and integrating sector related measures, while strengthening decentralized governance and ensuring the integration of information systems and evaluation actions and the dynamics of rural development on a regional scale.The body would also define each region’s essential vocations and mark their identities and production potential.In addition, the Council emphasized the importance of information and communication technologies as one of the main tools of rural development, proposing to strengthen and accelerate their use. This would be sensible now that mobile and internet networks are reaching even remote areas.On the human front, the EESC called for the implementation of gender equality in rural development policy and the implementation of positive measures for the empowerment of rural women. This approach would help eliminate structural and cultural obstacles. It would also eradicate discriminatory practices women experience in the family and in society, increase women’s participation in decision-making, access to land and material assets. The issues of marriage of minor rural girls, child labour and the exploitation of women in the workforce would also benefit.At the operational level, the report recommended ensuring that rural populations receive better access to social services and infrastructure, strengthening the rural economy and protecting and enhancing the value of natural resources.It also proposed the promotion of cultural and sports activities in rural areas, to ensure close support to local providers and rural populations. A recommendation was also made for strengthening the financing of rural development actions and directing it toward the welfare of the rural population.The objective of this draft report was to analyse every aspect of the problems of rural development in Morocco and to provide answers to the questions that would inevitably arise.The methodology adopted for its elaboration was based on an analysis of the current state of rural development and the identification of factors that have hindered the improvement of the rural population’s living environment. read more

No terrorist attack can reverse Tunisias democracy UN Security Council says

“Any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed,” the 15-nation body said in a press statement.According to media reports, the attack killed at least 12 members of Tunisia’s security forces and seven civilians, and injured more than 17 in Ben Gardane, a town located on the border with Libya, on Monday.In the statement, the Council underlined the need to bring perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of terrorism to justice, and urged all States to cooperate actively with all relevant authorities, in accordance with their obligations under international law and relevant Security Council resolutions.Further, the Council reaffirmed the need for all States to combat the threats posed by terrorist acts to international peace and security, by adhering to the Charter of the United Nations and other obligations under international law, including international human rights law, international refugee law and international humanitarian law.A press statement is a declaration to the media made by the Council’s President on behalf of all 15 Members.Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon issued a statement on Monday through his spokesman, condemning the attack. read more

Tiger Woods Tied For The Lead At Doral At

Playing with the Nos. 1 and 3 players in the world to open the WGC-Cadallac Championship, Tiger Woods made nine birdies in shooting a six-under 66 to tie for the first-round lead with four others.None of that quartet was named Rory McIlroy, the top-ranked player who struggled with a 73, or No. 3 Luke Donald, who shot a 70. Woods, despite three bogeys, dusted his playing partners, and attributed making four putts beyond 15 feet to tips he received from Steve Stricker.Woods and Stricker, one of the game’s best putters, spent a lot of time on the practice green on Wednesday. Stricker pointed out posture issues with Woods’ putting and straightened him out.“Whatever he says, I’m going to do,” Woods said. “He’s one of the best putters who has ever lived.”Starting on the 10th hole, Woods made birdies at the 11th and 12th, followed by bogeys at the 13th and 14th. He finished the back side with birdies at Nos. 16 and 18, then added two more at the first and second holes. After a bogey at the third, Woods birdied three of the last six to ascend to the top of the leaderboard..Meanwhile, McIlroy, who quit out of frustration with his game last week in Palm Beach, continued to seek his game. McIlroy could not find his game and the frustration mounted. But he did have two birdies to close his round, which should bolster his confidence.He’s going to need to to contend with Woods and co-leaders Bubba Watson, Sergio Garcia, Graeme McDowell and Frederik Jacobson.“It was a bit of a struggle, to be honest,” McIlroy said. “Hit some good shots, hit some not-so good shots. As I’ve been saying, this is a work in progress and I’m working at it and I’m staying patient. … I just had to play each hole as it come. Just shoot the best score possible.”Woods said he shot better than he  what he thought would be needed to be in the mix. “I felt we needed to shoot at least a couple under on each side to be right there,” Woods said. “I got a few more.”Over the course of day, Woods showed the form that will make him a viable threat all year, if he can maintain close to this level of play. read more

Deadly great white sharks and oceanic whitetips to arrive in British waters

A new study, carried out by Dr Ken Collins, Senior Research Fellow at the University of Southampton and a former member of the UK Shark Tagging Programme, found that rising sea temperatures will encourage exotic predators which have previously avoided our icy shores. At the end of June, a Great White was sighted near the island of Majorca… Dangerous sharks including great whites and oceanic white-tips could be swimming off the beaches of Cornwall within the next 30 years, according to experts. At least ten new species are predicted to become regular visitors to Britain’s waters by 2050, including Black Tips, Sand tigers and Hammerheads, which are currently found in the coasts of Spain and Portugal. read more

MPAA wants access to Megaupload data for additional lawsuits

first_imgSince the raid that took down file storage and sharing site Megaupload some two months ago, users of the site have been worried about the distinct possibility that their data could be deleted at any moment. Megaupload’s storage provider, Carpathia Hosting, is spending $9,000 per day to hold on to 25 petabytes of user data. Now those seeking to preserve those bits have an unexpected ally: the MPAA. In a letter to Carpathia, the MPAA expressed its desire to use the Megaupload data to file additional lawsuits.Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom and several executives from the company are facing criminal charges and extradition to the US, where they are expected to be charged with criminal copyright infringement. The fire and brimstone letter sent to Carpathia by the MPAA said the data should be retained in order to facilitate cases, “against those who have knowingly or materially contributed to the infringement occurring through Megaupload.”Seeing the PR disaster coming a mile away, the MPAA has tried to reach out and assure everyone that it doesn’t intend to actually sue any individuals at this time. Although, the letter does specifically call on Carpathia to keep data related to the users that uploaded and downloaded copyrighted content on Megaupload. If you believe the MPAA on this one, that data is necessary to prove that Megaupload was facilitating criminal copyright infringement.MPAA vice president Howard Gantman now insists that additional lawsuits will only be targeted at “intermediaries” believed to be involved with Megaupload. A hearing next month will determine if Carpathia will be forced to continue storing user data, and whether funds from Megaupload’s frozen accounts will be released to cover those costs. Even if, as the MPAA says, it only wants to know about the activities of users to continue its case against Megaupload, that’s still a lot of personal data in the open.via TechDirtlast_img read more

Microsoft pourrait arrêter Zune le concurrent de liPod

first_imgMicrosoft pourrait arrêter Zune, le concurrent de l’iPodLe géant américain semble vouloir arrêter la production de ses baladeurs Zune, lancés en 2006 pour concurrencer Apple et son iPod.L’aventure Zune ne devrait pas durer plus de 5 ans. C’est en tout cas ce que semble savoir Bloomberg, qui a annoncé l’arrêt de la production des baladeurs estampillés Microsoft. Le géant américain devrait se concentrer sur la partie logicielle, intégrée à Windows Phone 7 ou à la Xbox notamment, et aux services comme la vente de musique via Zune Pass. Lancée en 2006, la marque Zune n’a jamais réussi à se placer comme un concurrent potentiel à Apple et son iPod. Pourtant, après des premiers modèles victimes de nombreux bugs, Zune avait réussi à commercialiser des appareils salués par la critique, comme le Zune HD, mais qui n’ont jamais véritablement séduit les consommateurs. Le 15 mars 2011 à 18:31 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

E3 2012 Zoom sur le Sony Wonderbook

first_imgE3 2012 : Zoom sur le Sony WonderbookBien décidé à offrir au livre un nouveau souffle, en proposant aux enfants une expérience unique de la lecture, Sony a dévoilé hier son Wonderbook. Présenté lors de L’Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), le plus grand salon international du jeu vidéo et des loisirs interactifs, ce livre d’un tout nouveau genre mise sur la magie de la réalité augmentée.La lecture sera-t-elle révolutionnée par le Wonderbook ? C’est du moins l’ambition de Sony, qui lors du salon E3 a présenté l’innovant concept avec lequel la firme nippone entend redonner aux enfants, mais aussi aux adultes, l’amour du livre.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Le Wonderbook, un périphérique qui se connectera à la PlayStation 3 et à la manette de détection de mouvements PS Move, fait appel à la magie de la réalité augmentée. Une technologie qui projettera des images devant les yeux des futurs lecteurs, et leur permettra d’interagir avec les personnages et objets peuplant l’univers des livres. Pour l’heure, annonce Sony dans un communiqué, deux ouvrages sont en cours de préparation. Ils seront finalisés d’ici à la fin de l’année, afin, certainement, de pouvoir être déposés sous les sapins de Noël. Le premier, Wonderbook : Book of Spells, est le fruit d’une collaboration avec celle qui a imaginé Harry Potter, J.K.Rowling. Toutefois le jeune sorcier n’apparaîtra pas dans ce livre interactif, Sony ne possédant par les droits nécessaires à son exploitation. Mais le monde magique de Poudlard, lui, sera bien de la partie. Les enfants seront alors invités à lancer des sorts au moyen de leur PS Move transformé en baguette magique.Ce livre, se réjouit J.K Rowling, “est ce qui se rapproche le plus d’un véritable livre de magie à l’usage des Moldus. J’ai adoré travailler avec l’équipe créative de Sony afin de donner vie à mes sortilèges et à leur histoire. Il s’agit d’un objet extraordinaire offrant une expérience de lecture incomparable” affirme la créatrice d’Harry Potter. Reste à savoir si les petits, et les grands, se laisseront tenter par l’aventure…Le 6 juin 2012 à 19:00 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

FW Lays Off 30 Staffers

first_imgF+W Publications laid off 30 staffers across the company this week, chairman and CEO David Nussbaum [pictured right] has confirmed.Several of the cuts come from the company’s Iola, Wisconsin-based Krause Publications unit. About 80 percent of the layoffs, Nussbaum says, were in central services—including production, IT and facilities.The staffing terminations come on the heels of news that four of six full-time staffers resigned last week from Aircraft Maintenance Technology, a magazine published by sister company Cygnus Business Media. F+W and Cygnus are owned by private equity firm ABRY Partners. Several media companies—including Nielsen Business Media and Ziff Davis Enterprise—have had layoffs this year. Earlier this month, Penton Media announced a company-wide salary and hiring freeze, and ordered a reforecast of all budgets for the remainder of 2008.Some management-level staffers were also let go as part of the F+W job cuts, including one publisher. Nussbaum declined to comment on specific terminations. “We’re managing the costs of the slower-growth businesses and are feeding the faster-growth businesses,” he says. “Considering the continued build-up our digital media team, this is more like a reallocation of resources.”In March, F+W appointed former Penton e-media group publisher Chad Phelps to the newly-created position of vice president of digital media for the company’s book division. At the time, Nussbaum told FOLIO: that F+W was looking to expand its e-media-related staff this year by at least 20 additional positions. So far, Nussbaum says, 70 to 80 percent of those positions have been filled.This round of job cuts isn’t the first this year for F+W’s Krause Publications. In January, F+W shuttered five hobbyist magazines published by Krause, effectively terminating 13 positions.F+W purchased Krause Publications in June 2002 for $120 million.Fantasy Sports PartnershipThe job cuts at F+W come about a week after the company announced an unusal partnership with NBC Sports to launch a multi-city fantasy football event. According to the deal, NBC Sports will showcase the event—to be held simultaneously in Las Vegas, New York, Chicago and Orlando on August 30—on its fantasy sports Web site Rotoworld.com.”[NBC] is going to help us aggressively publicize and market the business and we will help them get into the fantasy sports business,” says Nussbaum. “F+W also has a sizeable sports collectible business. The hope here, with this partnership, is that we will find a number of new products that we can go after, too.”F+W publishes Fantasy Sports magazine and produces the National Fantasy Baseball Championship and National Fantasy Football Championship events.last_img read more

Raspberry Pi hack puts NASA in security jam

first_img Comments Share your voice 4 NASA’s wildest rides: Extreme vehicles for Earth and beyond Now playing: Watch this: NASA Everything we know about NASA’s Space Launch Systemcenter_img 23 Photos The data hack using a Raspberry Pi went undetected for 10 months. Raspberry Pi Foundation A low-cost, barebones computer that can fit in your palms left NASA open to a cyberattack, according to a recent audit report by the space agency. In April 2018, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory discovered that a hacker was able to gain access to one of its “major mission systems” by targeting a unauthorized Raspberry Pi computer that was attached to the JPL network, The Raspberry Pi hack went undetected for 10 months, according to the NASA Office of Inspector General, and the perpetrator stole 500 MB of data from 23 files. Two of those files contained information on the transfer of restricted military and space technology related to the Mars Curiosity Rover mission, according to the June audit report. The JPL is dedicated to robotic spacecraft construction.While the intruder has evaded authorities, the audit report highlights that other devices were also attached to the network without NASA’s knowledge. But none of the other devices have been marked as a security risk or an “advanced persistent threat,” a term usually meant for nation-state hacking groups.As a result of the hack, NASA stopped some of its agencies from using a core gateway due to fear that the hacker could harm currently active spacecraft. This isn’t the first time hackers have taken advantage of the space station’s security flaws. As sister site ZDNet reports, last year the Department of Justice charged a pair of Chinese nationals for hacking NASA and the US Navy’s cloud services. These hackers worked for Huaying Haitai Science and Technology Company located in Tianjin, China. Their goal included stealing intellectual property from top commercial and defense technology companies. NASA didn’t immediately respond to request for additional comment.  4:19 Computers Sci-Tech Security Tagslast_img read more

Fairbanks looks to transform school day

first_imgFairbanks schools will be the first in Alaska to implement a new education model that will transform the traditional school day.Listen Now”This whole idea of sitting in a desk for six hours a day is just gonna start changing,” North Star Borough Schools Superintendent Karen Goborik said.Gaborik said the district is contracting with national consulting firm “Education Elements” on the $1.6 million learning project to revamp the way kids and teachers interact.”Start to shift our thinking around how we group kids,” Gaborik said. “So grouping kids around their learning needs and their learning pace instead of age and grade.”Gaborik said technology will play a major role as a source of information and a platform for interaction.”We don’t need a teacher and a textbook to give us the information like we used to. I mean, it’s available to anybody,” Gaborik said. “So now the teacher becomes more a facilitator of learning. Teaching students how to consume information critically, how to use that information to be creative, to innovate and then teaching teaching students how to collaborate and really getting at some of those skills that the workforce now needs from students that are graduating from our systems.”Gaborik said the changes vary depending on grade level but can radically change the daily format, with kids attending school less than 5 days a week and completing courses at their own pace.”And that’ll be very interesting at the high school level, ’cause you’re gonna have some kids that do not need four years to get a high school diploma,” Gaborik said. “So then we want to put in place some options for them to start earning college credit, associate’s degrees, industry certifications, do internships… things like that.”Gaborik emphasized that students, parents and teachers will still share responsibility to make sure kids are learning. She said the program will be rolled out at the elementary level next semester, with changes at higher grades over the following 3 years.last_img read more

Iraqis vote Saturday seeking stability

first_imgAn Iraqi security member casts his vote at a polling station two days before polls open to the public in a parliamentary election in Baghdad, Iraq on 10 May. Photo: ReutersFor the first time since driving out Islamic State, Iraqis go to the polls on Saturday in an election that will shape attempts to heal the country’s deep divisions and could shift the regional balance of power.Iraq’s three main ethnic and religious groups, the majority Shi’ite Arabs and the minority Sunni Arabs and Kurds, have been at loggerheads for decades and the sectarian rifts are as apparent as ever 15 years after the fall of Saddam Hussein.The election of a new prime minister and parliament also takes place the same week US president Donald Trump announced he was pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal, raising tensions between Iraq’s two main allies: Tehran and Washington.Whoever wins the 12 May election will face the challenge of rebuilding Iraq after four years of war with Islamic State, jump-starting a flagging economy, balancing the interests of powerful foreign patrons and maintaining the country’s fragile unity in the face of sectarian and separatist tensions.“We want security. We have killings, theft, kidnappings. We never had this before. In the past 15 years the people have been destroyed,” said 29-year-old Khalid Radi, a laborer in Baghdad.Incumbent prime minister Haider al-Abadi is considered by analysts to be marginally ahead but victory is far from certain.Related CoverageEven though he announced Islamic State’s defeat during his first four-year term, diffused sectarian tensions enflamed by his predecessor, and maintained Iraq’s unity in the face of a Kurdish independence bid, he faces a tough battle.Three-way RaceAbadi has faced criticism about persistent government corruption, tough economic conditions and the austerity measures his cabinet introduced after the slide in global oil prices and to help pay for the fight against Islamic State.He also cannot rely solely on votes from his community as the majority Shi’ite voter base is unusually split this year. Instead, he is looking to draw upon support from other groups.Many, but not all, Sunnis see Abadi as a less sectarian alternative to his two main Shi’ite rivals and credit him with liberating their areas from Islamic State.There’s bad blood between Abadi and the Kurds, however, after Baghdad imposed sanctions on the semi-autonomous Kurdistan region following its failed independence bid last year.Even if Abadi’s Victory Alliance list wins the most seats he still has to navigate the long-winded and complicated backroom negotiations required to form a coalition government.His two main challengers are his predecessor Nuri al-Maliki and Iranian-backed Shi’ite militia commander Hadi al-Amiri.Both have a more passionate voter base than Abadi, who is mostly appealing to more pragmatic voters who see him as having better relations with the outside world and a cross-sectarian appeal needed to avoid further bloodshed and attract investment.Like Abadi, Amiri is running on a platform highlighting the victory against Islamic State, though the militia leader’s narrative is more compelling as he was a frontline commander and is viewed as war hero by many Shi’ites.Maliki, who was sidelined after eight years in office in 2014 after losing a third of the country to Islamic State, is looking to make a political comeback.In contrast to the cross-sectarian message of Abadi, Maliki is again posing as Iraq’s Shi’ite champion and is proposing to do away with the country’s unofficial power-sharing model in which all the main parties have cabinet representatives.Coalition Horse-tradingEver since Saddam fell in 2003, ending decades of dominance by the Sunni minority, senior government positions have been unofficially split between the country’s main groups.The post of prime minister has been reserved for a Shi’ite, the speaker for a Sunni, and the ceremonial presidency has gone to a Kurd – with all three being chosen by parliament.More than 7,000 candidates in 18 provinces, or governorates, are running this year for 329 parliamentary seats.The Iraqi constitution sets a 90-day deadline for forming a government after the election results are formally announced and the horse-trading can be protracted.The new government will also have to cope with the simmering tension between the United States and Iran.As prime minister, Abadi has won praise for his deft juggling of the competing and colliding interests of his two main backers. While his government maintains good relations with Iran, he is seen as balanced and Western diplomats say he would be the easiest candidate to work with.Maliki, who pushed for U.S. troop withdrawals and Amiri, who speaks fluent Farsi and spent years in exile in Iran during the Saddam Hussein era, are both seen as much closer to Tehran.Divisions All RoundThe election is also taking place in an atmosphere of division and disillusionment within Iraq’s three main groups.The Shi’ite vote is split as many are unhappy with their leaders after 15 years in power that have only yielded violence and unemployment and left the country’s infrastructure crumbling.But if the Shi’ites are split because they have too many leaders, Sunni Arabs are divided because they have none.Sunnis are at their lowest point yet. Millions languish in displacement camps, many are out of pocket and trying to rebuild destroyed homes in cities reduced to rubble – and they feel collectively branded as Islamic State sympathizers.The Sunni politicians that have held positions in government are largely discredited and there is no national Sunni leadership or party structure.Iraq’s Kurds, meanwhile, blame their leaders for gambling away hard-won autonomy in the failed independence referendum and might punish them by voting for non-traditional parties, which in turn could undermine the historically unified Kurdish bloc’s position as kingmakers in parliament.Voters go to the polls on Saturday, though security forces and Iraqis abroad started voting on Thursday. The electoral commission has said results will come “hours” after polls close.Islamic State has threatened to attack polling stations amid a recent uptick in security incidents in areas retaken from the militants while many voters simply do not feel the election will bring any change.“I propose the state just cancel parliament. Shake it and uproot it,” said 27-year-old mechanic Mustafa Tabbar using a popular Iraqi phrase meaning radical change.last_img read more

Possible first sighting of an exomoon

first_img(Phys.org)—A team led by David Kipping of Columbia University has spotted what might be the first evidence of an exomoon. They have written a paper describing their findings and have uploaded it to the arXiv preprint server. An exomoon is a moon orbiting an exoplanet. Many moons have been found in our solar system and many planets outside of it, but to date, no one has captured evidence of a moon orbiting one of those exoplanets. This might change, as the team studying data from the Kepler Space Telescope believe they have found strong evidence for a moon orbiting a planet which is itself orbiting a star called Kepler-1625.Exoplanets are found by noting the dimming of stars that occurs as a planet passes between Earth and the star. A moon would be found in roughly the same way, the researchers note, by looking for dimming that occurs in the light reflected from a planet caused by the transit of a moon. Kipping and his team report that they recorded three such dippings as the planet made three trips around its star. They have given their find a statistical confidence of slightly above 4 sigma, noting that the dipping they observed could be chalked up to a fluke in the data—there also exists the possibility that the dimming has another cause. They note that the star system is approximately 4000 light years away, which means the light from the planet is extremely dim to begin with.The team expects their finding to be verified (or quashed) by data from the Hubble Space Telescope, which offers much better data, sometime in the near future. But while they wait, they are already developing theories about the exomoon—if it truly exists, it would have to be much larger than our moon in order to detect it, perhaps as large as Neptune. That would mean the planet it is orbiting wis also quite large, likely as large as Jupiter. If that is the case, its size suggests that it would likely have formed later than moons in our solar system. It would also make the first observed exomoon the largest moon ever observed.

In this work, we stack the phase-folded transits of 284 viable moon hosting Kepler planetary candidates, in order to search for satellites. These planets range from Earth-to-Jupiter sized and from ~0.1 to 1.0 AU in separation – so-called “warm” planets. Our data processing includes two-pass harmonic detrending, transit timing variations, model selection and careful data quality vetting to produce a grand light curve with a r.m.s. of 5.1 ppm. We find that the occurrence rate of Galilean-analog moon systems can be constrained to be η<0.38 to 95% confidence for the 284 KOIs considered, with a 68.3% confidence interval of η=0.16+0.13−0.10. A single-moon model of variable size and separation locates a slight preference for a population of Super-Ios, ~0.5 R_Earth moons orbiting at 5-10 planetary radii. However, we stress that the low Bayes factor of just 2 in this region means it should be treated as no more than a hint at this time. Splitting our data into various physically-motivated subsets reveals no strong signal. The dearth of Galilean-analogs around warm planets places the first strong constraint on exomoon formation models to date. Finally, we report evidence for an exomoon candidate Kepler-1625b I, which we briefly describe ahead of scheduled observations of the target with the Hubble Space Telescope.

first_img July 16, 2008 – Earlier this week, the FDA released a notification that the X-rays used during a CT examination may cause some implanted and external electronic medical devices to malfunction. The devices include cardiac pacemakers, defibrillators, neurostimulators, external drug infusion pumps, cochlear implants and retinal implants.According to the FDA statement, this type of interference might be reported more frequently because of the increased utilization of CT, the higher dose-rate capability of newer CT machines, an increase in the number of patients with implanted and externally worn electronic medical devices and better reporting systems.Among the adverse events reported include unintended “shocks” (i.e., stimuli) from neurostimulators, malfunctions of insulin infusion pumps and transient changes in pacemaker output pulse rate.The FDA recommends that before a CT scan, the operator should use CT scout views to determine if implanted or externally worn electronic medical devices are present and if so, their location relative to the programmed scan range.For CT procedures in which the medical device is in or immediately adjacent to the programmed scan range, the operator should:-Determine the device type-Try to move external devices out of the scan range, if practical -Ask patients with neurostimulators to shut off the device temporarily while the scan is performed-Minimize X-ray exposure to the implanted or externally worn electronic medical device by: using the lowest possible X-ray tube current consistent with obtaining the required image quality; and making sure that the X-ray beam does not dwell over the device for more than a few seconds.The FDA requested clinicians submit reports of any adverse events related to the CT and implanted or external electronic devices via www.fda.gov/MedWatch/report.htm or by calling 1-800-FDA-1088.For more information: www.fda.gov/cdrh/safety.html.

Employees of Microsoft ask Microsoft not to bid on US Militarys Project

first_imgLast Tuesday, Microsoft announced plans to bid on the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) contract, which is a $10 billion project to build cloud services for the Department of Defense. However, over this weekend, an account named ‘Employees of Microsoft’ on Medium has urged the company not to bid on the JEDI project in an open letter. They said, “The contract is massive in scope and shrouded in secrecy, which makes it nearly impossible to know what we as workers would be building.” At the time of writing, no further details about the ‘Employees of Microsoft’ Medium account apart from the fact that the open letter is their first post, have come to light. We are unaware of whether this account genuinely represents a section of employees at Microsoft and if they do, what number of employees have signed this open letter. No names have been attached to the open letter. Earlier this month, Google announced that they will not be competing for the Pentagon’s cloud-computing contract. They opted out of bidding for project JEDI saying the project may conflict with their principles for the ethical use of AI. In August, Oracle Corp filed a protest with the Government Accountability Office(GAO) against the JEDI cloud contract. Oracle believes that the contract should not be awarded only to a single company but instead, allow for multiple winners. DoD Chief Management Officer John H. Gibson II explained the program’s impact, saying, “We need to be very clear. This program is truly about increasing the lethality of our department.” Many Microsoft employees agree that what they build should not be used for waging war. Per the letter, “When we decided to work at Microsoft, we were doing so in the hopes of empowering every person on the planet to achieve more, not with the intent of ending lives and enhancing lethality.” They also alleged that with JEDI, Microsoft executives are on track to betray the principles of “reliability and safety, privacy and security, inclusiveness, transparency, and accountability” in exchange for short-term profits. What do Microsoft employees want? Microsoft employees have asked strong questions such as, “what are Microsoft’s A.I. Principles, especially regarding the violent application of powerful A.I. technology? How will workers, who build and maintain these services in the first place, know whether our work is being used to aid profiling, surveillance, or killing?” They want clear ethical guidelines and meaningful accountability on which uses of technology are acceptable, and which are off the table. They also want the cloud and edge solutions listed on Azure’s blog to be reviewed by Microsoft’s A.I. ethics committee, Aether. Not just that, the petitioners have also urged employees of other tech companies to take similar actions asking questions like, “how your work will be used, where it will be applied, and then act according to your principles.” Many employees within Microsoft have also voiced ethical concerns regarding the company’s ongoing contract with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Per this contract, Microsoft provides Azure cloud computing services that have enabled ICE to enact violence and terror on families at the border and within the United States. “Despite our objections, the contract remains in place. Microsoft’s decision to pursue JEDI reiterates the need for clear ethical guidelines, accountability, transparency, and oversight.” Read the entire open letter on Medium.

Couple held by Somali pirates returns to S Africa

first_imgAssociated PressJOHANNESBURG (AP) – A South African woman and her Italian partner were handcuffed throughout the nearly two years they were held by Somali pirates, who fed them little but rice, pasta and bread, the now-freed couple said Wednesday after arriving in South Africa.Deborah Calitz and Bruno Pelizzari, captured in late 2010 from a yacht off the coast of Tanzania, spoke to reporters at an emotional Johannesburg airport news conference. They were freed in Somalia last week and stopped in Italy to see Pelizzari’s family before coming to South Africa, where friends and relatives draped in yellow ribbon printed with the word “believe” greeted them at the airport with tears, hugs and flowers. How Arizona is preparing the leader of the next generation New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths Early signs of cataracts in your parents and how to help South Africa’s foreign minister, Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, who met the couple at the airport Wednesday, told reporters the hostage-taking could only end once stability was brought to Somalia. Somalia has been beset by decades of civil war, and its last fully functioning government collapsed in 1991, allowing piracy and other crime to flourish. In more recent years, al-Qaida-linked militants have gained a foothold in the Horn of Africa nation.Pelizzari echoed the South African foreign minister’s calls for peace.“We’ve created a rainbow nation in South Africa,” he said, referring to the negotiated, peaceful end to white racist rule here. “We’ve got to do the same for the world.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements “We were treated like untouchables” in Somalia, Calitz said. “We were treated worse than animals at times.”The two were held captive 20 months, among the longest periods hostages have been held by Somali pirates.Relatives have said the two were sailing on a budget after buying a used yacht several years ago to pursue a dream of traveling the world’s seas. At the time they were kidnapped, they were working for another South African yachtsman to earn money for a visit home.The pirates originally demanded a ransom of $10 million, which relatives had said they could not pay. Their relatives in South Africa sought donations and organized concert fundraisers, and said the pirates kept changing their demand.“Thank you for not giving up on us,” a tearful Calitz told her friends and relatives Wednesday. She also thanked the governments of South Africa, Somalia and Italy.“We’re home! We’re safe! And we’re happy!” she said.Calitz said Wednesday the couple did not know whether a ransom was paid. Last week, Somalia’s defense minister said Somali security forces helped secure the release. He did not describe it as a rescue, but would not say if a ransom was paid. Most such cases end with payment of multi-million dollar ransoms, which security experts say only inspires more hostage-taking.center_img Sponsored Stories Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Comments   Share   Arizona families, Arizona farms: working to produce high-quality milk Top Stories last_img read more

US agency rejects military link to Vieques cancer

first_img Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Local residents and officials, who blame the military for health problems, vowed to keep pushing the U.S. government for more studies analyzing the impact of the now-ceased Navy activity on Vieques, which lies east of the U.S. territory’s main island. About 10,000 people live there.The Navy occupied the island’s eastern and western areas in 1941-2003, using it for warships and aircraft to practice firing live bullets, artillery rounds, rockets, missiles and bombs, according to the report.The Navy has said its forces accidentally fired 263 rounds of ammunition tipped with depleted uranium in 1999, violating federal law.That same year, a pilot dropped a bomb on an observation tower and killed a civilian, setting off years of angry protests that led President George W. Bush to end military activity on Vieques in 2003. The property once owned by the Navy is now a national wildlife refuge.The U.S. has since removed more than 16.5 million pounds of munitions in a cleanup expected to last through at least 2025.The U.S. agency’s latest report on Vieques angered many on the island, including community leader and activist Robert Rabin.“It’s a repetition of a long line of administrations in Washington that have sought to relieve themselves of any liability or responsibility for the horrific environmental, health and economic damages caused by a half century of military presence and activities here,” Rabin said in a phone interview. SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) – A U.S. agency has issued a long-awaited report saying it found no proof that decades of military practice bombing on the Puerto Rican island of Vieques sickened residents who blame it for high rates of cancer, asthma and other illnesses.The report was released this week and follows four previous assessments and several updates by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry that reached similar conclusions. 5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes During 2001-2003, the U.S. government released four reports stating it found no health hazards in Vieques’ air, soil, seafood and drinking water. Several scientists from the University of Puerto Rico, the University of Georgia and Yale University disagreed, saying residual contaminants were affecting the health of local residents.In February 2012, a U.S. appeals court upheld a decision to dismiss a lawsuit in which 7,100 residents of Vieques accused the federal government of causing illnesses.Among residents who blame the contaminants for their illnesses is Hermogenes Marrero, a retired U.S. Marine sergeant in his early 60s who worked in Vieques in 1970-1972. He said he is moving from Puerto Rico to the U.S. next month to ensure his colon cancer is in remission and to get treatment for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.He accused the U.S. government of burying evidence.“They don’t want to find the link,” he said in a phone interview. “They’re going to keep quiet about it.”Portier, the U.S. agency’s director, denied that and said he wants to form a coalition with the Puerto Rico Health Department and possibly other federal agencies to help carry out more studies. The agency’s director, Dr. Christopher Portier, said the 169-page report reached two conclusions: that there is credible evidence people in Vieques have poorer health than elsewhere in Puerto Rico and that scientists could not find a link between military operations and people’s health.“That doesn’t mean those linkages don’t exist,” he said. “It means we can’t find credible scientific evidence to support that.”The agency said that the public water supply was safe and that there were no air contaminants. However, it recommended additional soil testing in residential areas, stating there was still uncertainty about soil contamination because current data were inadequate.Officials said they found mercury in local seafood, but blamed it on the general presence of the metal worldwide. They also noted that there were no unusually high concentrations of mercury in a fish sampling.Officials said they did not analyze the possible effect of absorbing a mix of chemicals through food, air and water, saying they did not know the levels of chemicals that residents might have been exposed to.The agency “recognizes the possibility that this report cannot address accurately the effects of mixtures and cumulative exposures on the health of Viequenses,” the report stated. Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Sponsored Stories “Sometimes we fail. Sometimes we can’t get enough interest and resources to a site,” he said. “At this point, all I can say is we will try and we will partner as best we can.”The agency’s report said a higher mortality rate especially from cancer could be partly blamed on a lack of access to adequate medical care.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
