BNP calls EC secretary Helal ALs special office person

first_imgMirza Fakhrul Islam AlamgirThe opposition BNP on Tuesday alleged that election commission’s secretary Helal Uddin Ahmed is ‘working in favour of Awami League’ and now running the commission.”You (govt) are now running the election commission with a secretary. Helal Uddin was appointed as the election commission secretary from the secretariat in a special way,” said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.Speaking at a discussion, the BNP leader further said, “I’ve heard he, after attending office until 4pm, used to go to a certain party’s a special office where the party’s all election plans are worked out headed by HT Imam.”Pro-BNP student leaders of Dhaka University Central Students Union (DUCSU) and All- Party Students Unity (APSU) of the 1990s arranged the programme at the Jatiya Press Club demanding the release of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia and her proper treatment.Fakhrul alleged that the current election commission has no authority and capability to hold any credible election. “It couldn’t yet hold any election in a fair manner.”About their party’s stance on the 11th parliamentary polls, he said BNP will not join it without having Khaleda Zia released from jail. “The government must release her and withdraw all the cases filed against her.”The BNP leader said they will surely participate in the polls if the government meets their minimum demands for creating a level-playing field, dissolving parliament, installing a non-party neutral government and deploying the army personnel.He called upon all the political parties and people from all walks of life to get united to resolve political crisis, restore democracy and their basic rights. “We believe people will get united and defeat the government.”Fakhrul alleged that the government is running the country abusing the state machinery as it has lost ground beneath its feet.He criticised the Dhaka University authorities for imposing restriction on roaming, staying or carrying out any activity on the campus by outsiders without prior permission. “Dhaka University is not only an educational institution but also a premier place for exercising free thinking.”Stating that Dhaka University always showed people the right path during any crisis, Fakhrul said now that university is fettered. “The move has been taken as part of a plot.”The BNP leader also accused the ruling party ‘cadres’ of torturing and suppressing those involved in quota-reform movement. “Those who waged the anti-quota movement are now on the run to save their lives. One of them remains missing while another was taken on a 10-day remand. Two legs of a demonstrator were broken with a hammer.”last_img read more

first_imgAn unidentified man and a suspected criminal were killed in separate reported gunfights with Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) members in Rajshahi and Munshiganj districts early Sunday.In Rajshahi, an unidentified man was killed in an alleged gunfight with RAB members in Nabadanga area of the city around 12:30am, reports UNB.Spotting a torch beam in a banana orchard in the area a patrol team of the force went there, RAB-5 deputy commanding officer major AM Ashraful Islam said.When the team reached there, a gang of criminals opened fire on them, forcing the RAB men to fire back, triggering the gunfight which left the unidentified man bullet injured, he said.He was rushed to Rajshahi Medical College Hospital where doctors declared him dead, Ashraful said.The elite force recovered a magazine, two rounds of bullet, a pistol and 38 bottles of phensedyl.In Munshiganj, Md Sohrab Hossain, son of Yunus Bepari of Rudrapara village in Srinagar upazila, was killed in a reported gunfight with RAB members.Being informed that a gang of criminals was staying in the area, a team of the law enforcement conducted a drive in Chhatrobhog area around 4:30am, said RAB-11 company commander assistant superintendent Mohitul Islam.Sensing the presence of force, the gang members opened fire on them, prompting them to fire back, triggering the gunfight that left Sohrab dead on the spot, he said.Two RAB members were also injured in the gunfight, Mohitul added.The force recovered a foreign pistol, a bullet, 600 yaba tablets and Tk 10,500 from the scene, he said.Sohrab Hossain was wanted in 13 cases including murder, arms, robbery and abduction, said the RAB official.The law enforcement’s versions of the events, however, could not be verified independently as no versions of the incidents were available immediately either from any witness or from the victims’ families.last_img read more

Democrats unleash wave of Trump investigations

first_imgIn this file photo taken on 5 February US president Donald Trump delivers the State of the Union address, alongside vice president Mike Pence and speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi, at the US Capitol in Washington, DC. Photo: AFPNewly empowered House Democrats kicked off a barrage of investigations into president Donald Trump’s taxes, real estate business and Russia ties Thursday, raising the pressure on the White House after two years of insulation by a Republican majority.Trump lashed out about “presidential harassment” as one House committee opened a hearing into forcing the release of his long-hidden tax returns, and another began questioning his controversial policy to separate immigrant children from their parents at the US-Mexico border.”The Dems and their committees are going ‘nuts,'” Trump tweeted.”The Republicans never did this to president Obama, there would be no time left to run government,” he said.Both sides were girding for tough legal clashes pitting congressional powers against those of the presidency.House judiciary chairman Jerrold Nadler threatened Trump’s acting attorney general, Matthew Whitaker, with a subpoena if he did not turn over records of his communications with the White House in reference to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation into Russian election meddling.And Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, laid out a plan to begin probing Trump’s business ties to Russia, citing fears of money laundering and of “foreign financial or other leverage over president Trump.”Schiff’s committee is planning to hear testimony from the president’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, who has already divulged to investigators inside information about the operations of the president’s real estate business, the Trump Organization and Trump’s 2016 election campaign.”So now Congressman Adam Schiff announces, after having found zero Russian Collusion, that he is going to be looking at every aspect of my life, both financial and personal, even though there is no reason to be doing so. Never happened before!” Trump tweeted.Probes heighten impeachment threatHouse Democrats have a long list of Trump-focused issues to probe after being stifled for two years by majority Republicans.Winning control of the House in November allows them to open an investigative assault on the White House in the same way that — contrary to Trump’s claim — Republicans laid siege to former president Barack Obama.A shortlist of topics include conflicts of interest and mismanagement by cabinet members; Trump’s benefits from family business while in the White House; and security lapses by Trump and his White House staff.”We will not surrender our constitutional responsibility of oversight,” house speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday.The House probes would add to the legal and political burden facing the president from Mueller’s probe, and a parallel Justice Department investigation in New York into various activities of the campaign and Trump Organization.Altogether, the probes elevate the chance that Trump could face impeachment if serious wrongdoing is found.Thursday’s House Ways and Means hearing into Trump’s taxes would break what he declared in 2017 as a red line — that investigations should not touch his business and finances.Unlike previous presidents, Trump has refused to release his tax records. His lawyers claim they have been under review by the Internal Revenue Service since 2002.A 2016 New York Times analysis based on limited information concluded that Trump may have paid minimal or even no taxes each year since 1995.Democratic Representative Bill Pascrell called on the committee to tap its seldom-used power to obtain and review Trump’s tax returns.”If a president is cheating the system, or evading taxes, or otherwise violating the tax laws of our country, why should any citizen feel compelled to comply? No one is above the law,” he said.”When we have cause for concerns over conflicts of interest or tax violations, we have every reason to use the authority given to this committee.”Business ties to RussiaSchiff’s Intelligence Committee is planning a deep-dive into Trump’s financial and business ties to Russia, suggesting that they could involve money laundering.The committee wants to know “whether any foreign actor has sought to compromise or holds leverage, financial or otherwise, over Donald Trump, his family, his business, or his associates,” Schiff said in a statement Wednesday.”Congress has a duty to expose foreign interference, hold Russia to account, ensure that US officials — including the President — are serving the national interest and, if not, are held accountable,” he said.last_img read more

Blizzard erects 4000lbs bronze statue of Lich King Arthas Menethil in T

first_imgIf you’re in the neighborhood and want to check out the Lich King for yourself, his new home is in the Calligraphy Greenway in Taichung, Taiwan. Hopefully Niantic sees fit to make it a Pokémon Go gym, or at least a PokéStop. <> Blizzard might be enjoying new success with Overwatch right now, but it’s not forgetting its roots. No, not Starcraft. It’s other roots — Warcraft. The gaming company has built and installed a massive 14-foot, 4,000-pound bronze statue of Lich King Arthas Menethil in Taiwan. The cape alone weighs 1,000 pounds. The sculpture was created by Taiwanese artist Steve Wang as a way to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Blizzard Entertainment. But really, do you need a reason to build a 14-foot bronze statue of an undead sorcerer? I should think not. Being awesome is reason enough. Blizzard has published a full video showing what it was like to bring the Lich King to life.This was not an overnight project, or even something that took place over a few weekends. It took a team of more than 30 artists and craftsmen nine months to complete the statue. The team worked hard to make sure the storied power and malevolence of Arthas came through in the final product. Blizzard expects the statue of Arthas to last a very long time. Bronze is known for its durability and resistance to weathering, which is why we find so many ancient artifacts from the bronze age still intact. The statue was also designed with harsh weather in mind, including typhoon winds up to 175 miles per hour.last_img read more

Twitch Desktop App first look

first_imgTwitch Desktop App: first look by Martin Brinkmann on March 17, 2017 in Software – 7 commentsPopular  game streaming service Twitch revealed its new beta desktop client on March 16 for the Microsoft Windows operating system.First thing you will notice is that the client is quite large. The download has a size of about 80 Megabytes thanks to — you guessed that one right — Electron.Second thing worth noting is that you can use the client only if you sign in with a Twitch or Curse account, or create one. The Twitch web service does not have that limitation. The data that you enter does not need to be verified however.So, what is the Twitch Desktop Client then, and which features does it support?Twitch Desktop ClientAccording to Twitch’s own description, it brings all your “favorite communities, friends, and games” together in one place.This means that the client’s purpose is not to bring Twitch gaming streams to your desktop. Instead, it brings the community features of Twitch to your desktop (which may feature game streams).The features look pretty much like a modernized version of IRC. You have servers that you can join, and servers have admins, moderators and the like which have more rights than channel guests.People can post messages on servers they have joined, and interact with each other in several ways.You may add friends to the app, and create your own server if you like. This works directly in the software without you having to spend money on that.The server can be public, but they are not by default. Public servers appear in the discover queue, and anyone may join them.If you create a server, you get access to the admin panel to customize it. This includes setting the server to public, defining and modifying roles, adding members, banning users, planning events, and more.You may also sync your server with your (Twitch) stream. If you enable this feature, and it is only useful if you do stream on Twitch, then you are assigning Twitch channel roles automatically to server members as they join, and it lets anyone watch the stream within the app.Twitch’s Desktop application for windows supports text messaging, but also voice and video calls. These calls are free as they are made within the app. Think of Skype but limited to people who use the app.The general options list a lot of options. You can set up hotkeys for all kinds of things such as muting the microphone, disable the in-game overlay for compatible games, scan the computer for compatible games, disable the sharing of your activity, and configure notifications.Closing WordsTwitch Desktop App is mostly useful to three types of users. First, to Twitch streamers who want to take advantage of the community features that it introduces on the desktop. Second, to Twitch users who are active in at least one community on Twitch. And third, to gamers, who want to use the application to manage a group of friends, or a game server.Now You: do you use Twitch for gaming? Or something different?SummaryArticle NameTwitch Desktop App: first lookDescriptionPopular game streaming service Twitch revealed its new beta desktop client on March 16 for the Microsoft Windows operating system.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

News | Proton Therapy | August 06, 2019 IBA Signs Contract to Install Proton Therapy Center in Kansas IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A.) recently signed a contract and received the first payment for a Proteus One solution… read more Catalyst PT image courtesy of C-RAD The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s. Related Content Photo courtesy of Philips Healthcare. A report from the American Heart Association Committee on cardiac imaging stated that between 1980 and 2006 the collective dose from medical uses of radiation received by the U.S. population increased by more than 700 percent.1 The report also indicated “[Cardiac computed tomography angiography] (CCTA) accounted for around 50 percent of the collective dose.2Moving forward, physicians need to introduce strategies that reduce the radiation dose patients receive, says professor Juhani Knuuti, the European Society of Cardiology’s working group on nuclear cardiology and CCTA. Applying dose reduction strategies proved effective in the clinical trial PROTECTION 1.3 The study showed, for example, reducing the tube voltage from 120 kilovolts (kV) to 100 kV resulted in a 53 percent reduction in the median radiation dose for CCTA.While using techniques to lower dose is an important first step, the biggest challenge is to standardize the use of radiation across hospitals throughout the United States. To date, in the United States, there are no standard protocols for CT radiation dose exposure to patients during radiological procedures. Hospitals and imaging centers have developed their own protocols, typically based on those provided by their system’s manufacturer.As a result, radiation dose varies from one facility to the next. One study found that although the estimated median radiation dose across many hospitals corresponded to 12mSv, there was a six-fold difference in the dose delivered between the highest and lowest centers.4With growing awareness for the problem, is the medical community finally responding to the need for dose safety? Growing AwarenessIn the last 15 years, the problems with radiation exposure have escalated due to increased computed tomography (CT) utilization. A disproportionate amount of medical radiation dose comes from CT used in both pediatric and adult patients. According to Carlos J. Sivit, M.D., vice chair for clinical operations, University Hospitals of Cleveland, Case Medical Center, part of the reason for the increased use of CT is because it is such a useful tool as a frontline test for patients of all ages. After rising to its status as the study of choice in the mid-90s, by the early 2000’s, clinicians recognized there was an increase in radiation exposure to patients primarily driven by CT. In February 2001, the American Journal of Radiology published a series of articles relating cancer risk to CT in pediatric patients, asking whether doctors were compensating for pediatric patients. “This got the medical community, primarily the pediatric subset, and CT vendors to introduce certain interventions that could reduce dose,” said Sivit.The public clamor eventually simmered down. However, in the last three years, there has been a steady resurgence in the debate. This time it has been driven as much by the pediatric side as by the adult side. “It probably is as big of a problem in the adult population as it is in the pediatric population,” said Sivit. “We are most concerned with kids, since they have a greater time period to manifest results of radiation exposure. Children also tend to be more radiosensitive than adults. Because kids are so much smaller, using adult exposure parameters in pediatric exams results in significantly larger doses. This time around, there is heightened awareness in both the adult and pediatric imaging community.”One of the thought leaders in the movement toward lower radiation dose is the Society for Pediatric Imaging (SPI). The society launched the ongoing Image Gently campaign to lower dose in pediatric patients. The campaign motto is “child-size” the amount of radiation used when obtaining a CT scan in children.5Sivit believes Image Gently has had a significant impact, particularly on the vendors, the radiology community and on the public.Yet, mainstream media continues to broadcast concerns with radiological procedures. The New York Times recently published articles revealing serious issues related to radiological procedures, in which radiation has harmed patients. This prompted the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s subcommittee on health to hold a congressional hearing. Committee members examined incidents where excessive radiation doses were delivered during CT examinations and radiation therapy treatments. The committee noted that health care facilities across the nation lacked standards for technical personnel who perform medical radiation procedures, and needed uniform methods of reporting, investigating and tracking medical radiation errors. “It’s totally unregulated. The sites are not inspected for parameters on how to use CT. They just want to make sure the seats are not dangerous. For the most part, they’re not, but they are capable of endangering people depending on how you use it,” he said.The American College of Radiology proposed the development of a dose index to track the amount of dose a patient is exposed to over a lifetime. However, the challenge is how to measure dose. Currently, there is not a direct method of measuring dose. There are two estimated values to measure dose. One is the CTDI (CT dose index), which measures absorbed dose to a specific tissue location. It allows comparison and evaluation of the effects of differences in technique relative to dose. There also is the dose length product, which is the dose index multiplied by the scan length. However, there is still no method to determine the cumulative dose that patients receive.Strategies to Lowering DoseUntil radiation exposure in radiotherapy and medical imaging becomes standardized, there are several steps every doctor can take to safeguard patients.Sivit provides six key strategies, from the beginning of the process to the end, that can diminish dose exposure. 1. Eliminate unnecessary exams: The first step in dose reduction is to not use any dose by eliminating unnecessary exams or using alternative modalities that don’t use radiation. For example, apply ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In addition, if there is a known condition, decrease the number of follow-up studies that use radiation whenever possible. In many cases, probably 80 percent or more of the CT studies performed are normal or show incidental findings unrelated to the medical condition being considered. Decreased utilization is the best method of lowering dose. 2. Avoid using multiphase CT exams: Whenever possible, avoid using multiphase CT exams. Often, when doctors take a CT of the body, they may scan the patient two or three times. This may involve an arterial phase and portal venous phase exam. These protocols are associated with considerable dose. It is essentially getting three CTs instead of one, and they are rarely necessary. Multiphase exams are rarely used in the pediatric population, and could be eliminated in the adult population. 3. Adjust dose to patient size: Modify the technique according to the patient’s size. With CT, the higher the dose, the better the image will look. Radiologists, of course, want to have the best image possible, but it is not necessary to have the perfect image to make a diagnosis. This is widely acknowledged in the pediatric population, and many adult radiologists are catching on now. The main driver of dose in CT is the tube current, which is the mAs. Optimize the tube current by keeping the mAs as low as possible. Many systems provide automatic exposure control, which can reduce dose by as much as 50 percent. This feature forces the CT scanner to compensate for different parts of the body that may need less tube current. For dense anatomy, such as bone through the pelvis, the dose needs to be set at a higher tube current than when it is acquiring an image of the abdomen. 4. Calibrate exposure for key areas: Change exposure to focus on key areas that answer the clinical question. For instance, when looking for lung or skeletal pathology, the user can lower the dose even more. In these areas, higher quality images don’t always lead to improved diagnosis. 5. Shield dose sensitive organs: There are certain organs that are more dose sensitive: the eyes, the thyroid and the breast. Use external shielding to protect the breasts. For a facial exam, cover the eyes. When scanning the neck, shield the thyroid. This technique helps reduce dose to that organ, but doesn’t diminish image quality. 6. Pulse fluoroscopy and capture screen save images: With fluoroscopy, the vendors have also made advances in the last decade. Instead of continuous fluoroscopy, use pulse fluoroscopy. The pulses can vary from 30 to three-and-a-half frames per second. Keep in mind: the lower the pulse, the lower the dose. That can decrease the effective dose by five- to 10-fold. Instead of taking a spot image, use a screen saver. The screen saver captures the last object imaged and stays on the screen. By capturing an image of your screen saver, the patient is not exposed to any additional radiation. While fluoroscopy does not generate as much radiation as CT, by applying pulsing or the screen saver technique, radiation levels are cut significantly.Runaway TrainMeanwhile, CT utilization is increasing faster than the industry can regulate it. “While there is greater awareness among radiologists and participation on the part of vendors, it’s almost like a runaway train that is hard to stop,” said Sivit. “The biggest factor right now is that CT is such a good test for so many things that utilization continues to increase dramatically.” With a child or adolescent patient that is slender, standard parameters do not apply. However, many physicians do not adjust for their smaller size, don’t use automated dose reduction, and end up giving the patient 10 to 15 times the required dose. In 20 to 30 years, potentially that patient could develop disease from the radiation exposure. Sivit considers this a medical error. “The medical definition of a medical error is ‘failure of a planned action to be completed as intended or use of a wrong plan to achieve an aim,’” noted Sivit. He feels overexposure to radiation should be considered as much an error as if a doctor gave a patient the wrong prescription. The next step toward standardizing dose and quality control will require more cooperation from the vendors. “The vendors need to provide the dose measurement,” said Sivit. “After that, software developers need to link the data into picture archive and communication systems (PACS) and the electronic medical record (EMR). Once dose is standardized, this would enable clinicians to better report and measure total patient exposure across multiple modalities over time.” References: 1.

LISTEN Chris Wesseling NFLcom Around the NFL

first_imgLISTEN: Chris Wesseling – NFL.com, Around the NFL Podcast Your browser does not support the audio element. March is here.With the NFL Scouting Combine in the books, teams around the league are now shifting focus to free agency, which begins March 7.The Arizona Cardinals have 23 total free agents, including those in the exclusive and exclusive rights categories. One of the more important pending free agents is safety Rashad Johnson.Johnson just finished up a three-year, $3.6 million contract with the Cardinals, the team he’s spent his entire seven-year NFL career with. In 2016, Johnson had a career-high and team-leading five interceptions for the NFC West champions. “I don’t think every team in the league considers him to be a starting-caliber player, so I think his best fit is with the Cardinals.”Powers, 28, just completed a three-year contract worth $10.5 million he signed back in 2013. In three seasons, he’s played in 45 games (40 starts), intercepted five passes, and like Johnson, been a key veteran leader in the group. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Comments   Share   But his value goes beyond statistics. The 30-year-old has proven to be an extension of the coaching staff on the field and is a key cog in leading communication in Arizona’s productive secondary.Whether or not the Cardinals opt to bring Johnson back remains to be seen, but one NFL insider doesn’t think there will be a lot of teams clamoring for his services.“I don’t know about a big market,” NFL.com’s Chris Wesseling told Bertrand Berry on Off the Edge with B-Train Wednesday on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. “I think people took notice last year when he was injured toward the end of the season and everybody in Arizona spoke so highly of him. I’m sure people heard that around the league.“But he’s another guy where it seems like the Cardinals value what he does and they’ll probably find a way to keep him.”Earlier in the interview, Wesseling had similar things to say about cornerback Jerraud Powers, who is also about to hit free agency.“I think it would be in his best interest to stay in Arizona,” Wesseling said. “He sort of followed Bruce Arians from Indianapolis to Arizona and it seems like they are big fans of each other. It would probably be in his best interest to stick with Bruce, I would imagine. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more
