Texas Muslim Man Killed in Possible Hate Crime

Rabat – A Muslim Iraqi immigrant was shot and killed last week by gunmen in Dallas, Texas.The immigrant has been identified as 36-year-old Ahmed Al-Jumaaili. He had been in the United States for just three weeks before the shooting that claimed his life. He had travelled from war-torn Iraq to join his wife in north Texas where he thought he would be safer away from the threat of the Islamic State and sectarian violence.According to media reports, Ahmed Al-Jumaaili stood outside of their apartment with his brother to enjoy snowfall for the very first time, while his wife took pictures. He was then shot by what residents would later describe to the authorities as a group of two to four men. One of them raised a rifle and shot Al-Jumaaili who died later at Texas Health Presbyterian hospital in Dallas. This incident comes only one month after the shooting of three young Muslims dead in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The shooting was described by the victims’ families as a “hate crime”.Police have not ruled out the possibility that the murder of Al-Jumaaili is a hate crime. However, many in the United States have criticized the lack of media coverage given to the story. They took to Twitter to express their outrage under the hashtag #MuslimLivesMatter.Another Muslim killed, and hardly any media coverage, #MuslimLivesMatter , are you sure about that. #DallasShooting— Abdul Raheem Rudolph (@rudol9h) 6 Mars 2015 RIP Ahmad Al-Jumaili.

National Research Council computers hacked by Chinese says Canadian spy agency

OTTAWA — Chinese hackers have infiltrated the computer systems at the National Research Council, forcing it to shut down its IT network for an extended period, the federal government revealed Tuesday.The Treasury Board Secretariat said there is no evidence that other government computer systems or data have been compromised.But the NRC’s computers have been isolated from the rest of the government’s systems as a precaution.And the council said it could be some time before a new, more secure system is up and running.“NRC is continuing to work closely with its IT experts and security partners to create a new secure IT infrastructure,” the council said in a statement.“This could take approximately one year however; every step is being taken to minimize disruption.”In a separate statement, the government said one of Canada’s spy agencies, the Communications Security Establishment, detected and confirmed the cyber attack.The intrusion came from “a highly sophisticated Chinese state-sponsored actor,” said the Treasury Board.“We have no evidence that data compromises have occurred on the broader Government of Canada network,” the statement said.Still, the NRC said it has notified the Privacy Commissioner and its clients and stakeholders about the breach.The agency said it would not release further information, citing security and confidentiality reasons.However, it planned to update Canadians on the situation by Thursday.Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird raised concerns over the breach with Chinese government officials in Beijing Tuesday, according to a spokesman for the minister.“The minister took the opportunity to discuss the situation with his counterpart, and they had a full and frank exchange of views on the matter,” said Adam Hodge.“The government takes this issue very seriously and we are addressing it at the highest levels in both Beijing and Ottawa.”Baird is currently on a three-country tour of Asia to promote economic ties among Canada, China, Mongolia and Japan.The National Research Council touts itself as “the Government of Canada’s premier organization for research and development,” which partners its scientists, engineers and business experts with private industry to bring new technologies to market. read more

GreatWest Lifeco profits down as it reports 459 million net income

Companies in this story: (TSX:GWO)The Canadian Press TORONTO — Great-West Lifeco Inc. says profits were down in the second quarter compared with last year as it took a charge and had some investment impairments.The insurance company says it had net earnings of $459 million, or 49 cents per share for the quarter ending June 30, compared with earnings of $831 million or 84 cents per share last year.Adjusted earnings, which exclude a $199 million charge from the sale of part of its U.S. operations, came in at $658 million or 70 cents per share to meet analyst expectations according to financial markets data firm Refinitiv.The company says adjusted earnings were also affected by changes to insurance contract liabilities and the impact of U.K. retail related investment impairments.Great-West says sales were up $1.2 billion to $34.3 billion, an increase of four per cent from the second quarter last year, largely on higher sales in Europe.On July 19, the company’s board approved a plan to combine its Great-West Life, London Life and Canada Life divisions and their holding companies into a single company to be known as The Canada Life Assurance Company. read more

Oxfam Focus and Garda Trust all benefit from €2m Poor Box fund

first_imgNEW FIGURES FROM the Courts Service detailing some €2 million paid out to charities from the courts ‘Poor Box’ show that Oxfam Ireland was the biggest beneficiary of the fund in 2012.The charity received €126,200 from the courts system, with five other organisations also receiving donations above €50,000: they were the Friends of St. Patrick’s, the Cappuchin Day Centre, Sightsavers International, the Christian Blind Mission and Action Aid Ireland.The Garda Benevolent Trust Fund, Aware and the Jack and Jill Foundation were all inside the top 20, and received donations of over €20,000 each.Overall, €2,009,445 was paid out to over 700 charities, groups and individuals over the 12 month period, the Courts Service confirmed.Historical precedentThe practice of courts directing that money be paid into a poor box in lieu of, or in conjunction with another penalty, is a practice that pre-dates the foundation of the State.It’s predominantly used by the District Courts who deal with criminal offences of a less serious nature than other jurisdictions.  The individual amounts can vary substantially depending on factors like ability to pay, other penalties imposed and the nature of the offences committed.The option is generally used where the offence is minor in nature and wouldn’t attract a jail sentence. It’s most frequently used by judges dealing with public order offences, including breaches of the peace, disorderly conduct or failure to comply with a direction from the gardaíIt’s also sometimes utilised for road traffic incidents — last month, Monegall resident and eighth cousin of Barack Obama  Henry Healy was ordered to pay €500 into the Poor Box after pleading guilty to careless driving in May of last year.  The judge in the case described him as a man who had “an impeccable record in terms of road safety” and “an impeccable record of service to the Irish State”.A spokesperson for the Courts Service said there were many reasons the poor-box option may be used, including cases where the accused had never previously been before the courts or where a conviction might be inappropriate, or might adversely affect employment.The Law Reform Commission recommended in 2005 that the operation of the poor box be put on a statutory footing and updated in the context of a reformed Probation of Offenders Act, which covers cases where offenders are considered unlikely to be in trouble with the law again.Judge Catherine McGuinness, a former chair of the Commission, said the body had made a number of recommendations to make the system more accountable.“We felt was that it was a fairly arbitary system,” McGuinness told Newstalk Breakfast. “But it has its virtues certainly — the Commission recommended that it should be put on a statutory basis that would make it more transparent and that there would be proper rules.“It was recommended that rather than leaving it to individual judges to decide what charities would benefit, all the money should be paid into one pot and a committee should be set up to administer that and decide which charities should benefit.”McGuinness said that while the list of the top 20 organisations named in the 2012 list were all “highly virtuous”, some “rather odd” choices of charity had been made by judges over the years.Read: Two men and two women arrested over Lamb Alley assaultRead: Charities, revised estimates and everything else happening in Leinster House todaylast_img read more

Hellblade Has Me More Excited to Play God of War

first_img Hands-On: ‘Stranded Sails’ Is a Relaxing Farm Sim AdventureHere’s an Hour of Incomprehensible ‘Death Stranding’ Gameplay I’ve been a fan of the God of War series since the beginning. Because of that, I am understandably excited to play the new God of War. With that said, I had some concern after seeing its initial trailer. After all, this upcoming installment will (seemingly) ditch many of the franchise’s conventions to deliver something fresh. While I admit the old formula had gotten stale, I was unsure if this new direction would actually work.Then I played Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.Hellblade is the latest game from developer Ninja Theory. It tells the story of a young Celtic warrior who suffers from mental illness. Despite her inner turmoil, Senua bravely faces off against ancient Norse gods and the challenges put before her. Though it is an indie game, Hellblade has the same production value of a full AAA title. In some ways, Hellblade reinvents the action adventure genre that God of War firmly belongs to.While going through Hellblade, I couldn’t help but think about how excited it made me about playing the new God of War. We haven’t gotten a complete look at God of War’s gameplay, but it seems to share many similarities with Hellblade. Because of Hellblade‘s brilliant execution, I am now less worried about God of War. If God of War is anything like Hellblade, it could potentially be the best entry in the venerable series.Based on the trailers, God of War appears to have an extremely close-up camera angle. This type of viewpoint could potentially make combat more difficult, if not downright confusing. Hellblade’s point of view is also extremely close. However, even when surrounded by multiple enemies, I never found the camera angle burdensome. I was perfectly aware of my surroundings at all times.Since this extremely close-up angle isn’t a hindrance in Hellblade, then it shouldn’t present a problem in God of War if implemented correctly. Hellblade does a great job of giving you spacial awareness through the voices in Senua’s head. If a voice says “behind you” then you’ll know to dodge. Kratos will travel with his son, so it’s possible he’ll warn his father about enemy sneak attacks. There are a variety of ways to handle this, but God of War can deliver satisfactory combat even with the camera being so close to Kratos.In the original God of War series, Kratos fought the Greek gods. This time, he faces the deities of Norse mythology. This is an idea the God of War team had for many years but are now actually realizing. In all honesty, I thought the concept of Kratos headlining a world tour where he killed regional gods was corny. I was perfectly fine with him sticking to the Greek pantheon. Seeing Kratos battling a frost giant and meeting the world serpent made me realize how wrong I was.One of my favorite aspects of Hellblade is how deep it delves into Norse mythology. There are runes scattered throughout the game that regales Senua with ancient Norse stories. Much in the way the God of War series taught me about Greek myths, Hellblade enlightened me on Norse mythology. These stories and the cold north that inspired them are actually perfect for an action game. Since God of War has a higher budget than Hellblade, it can contain a great number of interesting Norse gods and characters.From the look of the trailers, God of War will have a more serious tone than previous installments. Some have even compared it to The Last of Us in that regard. Though God of War delved into the tragedy of Kratos’ life, it mostly focused on his blood lust and anger toward the gods. I found this new, more somber direction intriguing. At the same time, I feared the game would somehow diminish the powerful Kratos.The core of Hellblade is about Senua overcoming her inner demons. Throughout the game, disturbing voices and dark visions plague Senua’s mind. She has difficulty discerning reality from illusion. It’s a very harrowing journey, especially for those who have experience with mental illness. Despite being such an emotional game, Hellblade is still exciting to play. There is no ludo-narrative dissonance here. Exhilarating gameplay and captivating story blend seamlessly together.Hellblade’s masterful balance of action and pathos is something that could work equally well in God of War. There is no reason why Kratos can’t display a greater range of emotions while still retaining his powerful persona. More than any game I’ve played recently, Hellblade shows that even a mighty warrior is susceptible to human frailty. I want to see Kratos go through a similar journey as Senua.If you’re one of the folks concerned about God of War’s new direction, please do yourself a favor and play Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. If you’re like me, then playing through this game should help alleviate some of the concerns you may have about Kratos’ upcoming adventure. Hellblade gives us a good idea of what to expect in God of War and shows there’s still room to innovate the action genre.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Soybean Growers Relieved to Hear Positive Trade News from G20

first_imgThe American Soybean Association (ASA) was pleased to hear positive reports from the G20 Summit Saturday night that President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping have potentially agreed to deescalate the current trade friction by not raising tariffs further while negotiations continue. According to a White House statement, China has also agreed to purchase more U.S. agricultural and other products.John Heisdorffer, a soybean grower from Keota, Iowa, and ASA president said, “This is the first positive news we’ve seen after months of downturned prices and halted shipments. If this suspension of tariff increases leads to a longer-term agreement, it will be extremely positive for the soy industry. We want to begin repairing damage done to our trade relations with China, which has been essential to successful soybean exports for years.”Under the agreement reached on Saturday, tariffs on $200 billion worth of goods will not increase to 25 percent on January 1 from the current 10 percent level. Details have not been announced regarding the quantity of U.S. goods that China will purchase, but the White House statement indicated that purchases of ag products would begin immediately.Trump and Xi struck the deal during a dinner Saturday night following the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The agreement apparently has a moratorium of 90 days for both sides to come to resolution on issues including technology transfer, intellectual property protection, and other concerns.“During the 90-day negotiating period, ASA hopes to see China reopen its market to significant U.S. soybean imports as a key confidence-building step that will help restore our trade relationship,” Heisdorffer said. “This is an important opportunity to demonstrate positive momentum that will strengthen efforts on both sides to restore economic relations that are mutually beneficial.”last_img read more

EdwardElmhurst Health Completes CRtoDR Conversion With Carestream Systems

Two additional DRX mobile systems will be installed by year-end to complete its conversion to digital radiography (DR) technology.This conversion began several years ago as the health group started replacing existing computed radiography (CR) systems with DR.“Our staff evaluated imaging systems from several vendors. Our radiologists compared the image quality delivered by different detectors and selected Carestream’s cesium iodide detectors. We use these detectors for our room and portable imaging systems,” said Ryan Garland, Edward Hospital’s radiology/imaging manager.The health system captures more than 120,000 X-ray exams a year. It has 30 standard-size 14 x 17-inch Carestream detectors and two 10 x 12-inch DRX 2530C detectors that are used to image infants in neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) areas.“Installing new systems with cesium-based detectors created a 60 percent reduction in dose as compared with CR. And converting to DR has greatly enhanced productivity and workflow by providing immediate access to images by radiologists and physicians,” Garland reported.Standardizing on Carestream systems also delivers consistent image quality and technologists benefit from the user-friendly design offered by these systems, he added.Garland uses Carestream software to monitor dose data and repeat rates. “The exposure index system provides appropriate exposure ranges, and the administrative software allows me to detect when technologists are overexposing or underexposing patients. It’s an excellent way to ensure that our facilities maintain the highest possible image quality and the lowest possible dose,” he explained.Carestream DRX Plus detectors are thinner and lighter than other detectors to provide easier handling and an IPX 57 water-resistance rating enhances longevity. “We use DRX Plus detectors in the ER and OR areas because of the added protection against damage from bodily fluids. This important advantage can lengthen the life of our detectors,” Garland said.Being able to use any DRX detector in any DRX imaging system ensures continuous uptime and greater imaging flexibility.For more information: www.carestream.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content 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 News | Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) | August 06, 2019 Canon Medical Introduces Encore Orian MR Upgrade Program Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. is helping to provide low-cost patient care solutions for its customers with the launch… read more News | Medical 3-D Printing | August 08, 2019 RSNA and ACR to Collaborate on Landmark Medical 3D Printing Registry The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) will launch a new medical… read more News | Digital Radiography (DR) | October 20, 2017 Edward-Elmhurst Health Completes CR-to-DR Conversion With Carestream Systems New systems help enhance productivity while monitoring and reducing radiation dose Technology | Cybersecurity | August 07, 2019 ScImage Introduces PICOM ModalityGuard for Cybersecurity ScImage Inc. is bridging the gap between security and functionality with the introduction of the PICOM ModalityGuard…. read more center_img Technology | Contrast Media | August 05, 2019 Bracco Receives FDA Approval for Varibar Thin Liquid for Oral Suspension Bracco Diagnostics Inc. announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for Varibar Thin Liquid (barium… read more Shimadzu FluoroSpeed X1 Walkaround AHRA 2019Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:25Loaded: 11.42%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:25 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Capital Intelligence affirms Cypruss BB credit rating

first_imgCAPITAL Intelligence, the Limassol-based rating company, said that it affirmed Cyprus’s BB- sovereign credit rating, the B short-term foreign currency rating and their outlook at ‘stable’.Capital Intelligence cited the island’s economic recovery and improved fiscal data, the satisfactory access to international markets demonstrated with the latest government bond issue in June, expectations that recent primary budget surpluses will lead to a reduction of government debt and the gradual improvement in the banking sector.The rating company said that it expects the economy to expand by 2.4 per cent this year, significantly lower than the 2.9 per cent official forecast, compared to last year’s 2.8 per cent growth and the 3.5 per cent rate announced by the statistical service for each of the first two quarters this year.“Capital Intelligence expects the economy to expand at a satisfactory rate of about 2.5 per cent on average in 2018 to 2019,” the rating company said.“Downside risks to the outlook appear to be receding with both the construction and banking sectors showing more solid signs of improvement. Foreign direct investment is also expected to pick up in the short to intermediate term given government initiatives to encourage international private investment in new casinos, hotels, marinas and renewable energy projects”.“Despite the government’s commitment to post-financial assistance programme reforms, Capital Intelligence notes that there have been delays in enforcing certain new laws and in implementing specific politically-sensitive reforms, which may be partly attributable to the presidential elections next year,” it added.“These measures include reforms to the public sector (including its size and wage bill), a new foreclosure framework, and privatisation. Despite the implementation risk, Capital Intelligence does not foresee a material weakening of budget performance or public debt dynamics”.The rating company last upgraded Cyprus’s credit rating on March 6.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

The accounting loss from the transaction is around €1.0 million, but there is a positive impact of approximately €7.0 million on the Group’s capital position, after taking into account the reduction in risk weighted assets.The sale falls under the Group’s strategy of focusing on core businesses and markets and disposing operations that are considered as non-core.It is also in line with the Group’s decision to gradually reduce its presence in Romania with a view of eventually exiting Romanian market.The sale achieves an exit from a sizable and specialised asset in the country and at the same time enhances liquidity by €95 million, BoC said.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue BookYou Won’t Believe How Affordable These Ford Car Models AreKelley Blue BookUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
