Fort McMurray fire showed animal care gaps during natural disasters researcher

first_imgCALGARY — A Calgary researcher says the Fort McMurray wildfire in 2016 showed how pets are often overlooked in disaster planning.Kim Williams with Mount Royal University’s Centre for Community Disaster Research interviewed 32 evacuees, first responders, veterinarians, volunteers, politicians, policy-makers and animal welfare workers involved in Canada’s costliest natural disaster.In a paper released Tuesday, she said a common theme emerged.“Although the risk of wildfire is high in and around Fort McMurray, neither the province nor the (Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo) had a plan for how to manage companion animals during a disaster,” said Williams, an associate professor of women’s and gender studies.Some 88,000 people were forced from their homes as the fire — so fierce and unpredictable it was nicknamed “the Beast” — spread into the northeastern Alberta city. Almost 2,600 dwellings were destroyed.Of the estimated 40,000 pets there at the time, between 1,200 and 1,500 had to be left behind when the whole city was evacuated May 3.Initially, first responders went from home to home providing food and water to animals, but the evacuation lasted longer than expected. A rescue operation began for the critters four days after their humans left, and the first truckload arrived in Edmonton early on May 8.Williams called the first 72 hours of the evacuation a “communications gong show” as people struggled to find out if their animals were OK and how they could be reunited.It’s not clear how many pets died.Williams recommends that an animal welfare expert be included in emergency operations centres during disasters so those concerns aren’t overlooked.She said people she interviewed emphasized that many animal welfare workers are women and they should feel safe and respected in often male-dominated disaster zones.The paper highlights challenges in obtaining and transporting  necessary pet-care supplies during the Fort McMurray evacuation. Williams recommends shipping containers be set up filled with non-perishable supplies such as cat litter at various spots in the province so that they could be easily moved where needed.During the fire, there were also issues with veterinarians being unable to get access to animals’ health records. Williams said she would like to see those records kept in an electronic database.The research found animal caregivers in Fort McMurray were taken aback by how many exotic animals there were. It was hard enough to wrangle all the dogs and cats, but staff were not prepared for all the lizards, birds and snakes that came their way, Williams said.“There’s a problem with animal licensing,” she said. “People need to know that they’re there.” Williams said failing to make animal care a bigger part of emergency planning ultimately puts human lives at risk.“Pets are an integral part of people’s families, and humans will delay or refuse evacuation if they cannot evacuate with their pets or, at the very least, be assured that first responders and emergency management personnel have a well-organized plan for managing those pets that must be left behind,” she wrote.“Spontaneous volunteers will sneak into disaster areas to rescue forcibly abandoned pets for the same reasons.”Lauren Krugel, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Trading in mangoes, red chili, herbs to be hit as cross-LoC trade is shut

first_imgNew Delhi: Trading of 21 items like red chili, mangoes, herbs and dry fruits will be hit following the indefinite suspension of cross LoC trade in Jammu and Kashmir, officials said Friday. Around 280 traders, who were directly involved in the trading will also be affected after the suspension of the business, which has touched Rs 6,900 crore since its inception in 2008. The 21 items listed for the cross LoC trade include bananas, embroidery items, tamarind, red chili and cumin for exports while imports mainly were almonds, dry dates, dry fruits, herbs, mangoes and pistachio. Hardening its stand against Pakistan, India Thursday indefinitely suspended cross-LoC trade at two points along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir effective Friday, following reports that it was being “misused” by elements from across the border to smuggle weapons, narcotics and fake currency. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalThe Home Ministry said orders have been issued for halting the trade at Salamabad of Baramulla in Kashmir region, and Chakkan-da-Bagh of Poonch district in Jammu region, after reports of very large scale “misuse” of cross-LoC trade. The cross-LoC trade on Srinagar-Muzaffarabad and Poonch-Rawalakote routes was started on October 21, 2008 as a Confidence Building Measure (CBM). Trade since 2008 till the 2017 fiscal stood at over Rs 4,400 crore at the Uri trading centre, while the figure for the same period at Poonch stood ar Rs 2,542 crore. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostInitially, 646 businessmen from Jammu and Kashmir had registered for trading in the two crossing points, but the number now stands at around 280, who are actually involved in conducting the business. When the cross LoC trade started, initially the business was for two days but from October 15, 2011, trading days were extended to four. The home ministry said a stricter regulatory and enforcement mechanism is being worked out and will be put in place in consultation with various agencies. The issue of reopening of LoC trade will be revisited thereafter. “It has been revealed that the trade has changed its character to mostly third party trade and products from other regions, including foreign countries, are finding their way through this route. “Unscrupulous and anti-national elements are using the route as a conduit for Hawala money, drugs and weapons, under the garb of this trade,” it claimed. It said during ongoing investigations of certain cases, the NIA has found a significant number of trading concerns engaged in the LoC trade are being operated by persons closely associated with banned terrorist outfits.last_img read more

Petronet to form joint venture with Japan Sri Lanka for LNG plant

A Joint Venture of Petronet LNG Limited along with Japanese and Sri Lankan companies will develop an LNG Terminal in Sri Lanka to provide regassified natural gas to various power plants, domestic and transport sectors in Sri Lanka. The capacity of the LNG Terminal will be decided upon the gas demand in Sri Lanka and is expected to be developed in 2 years after completion of initial formalities. Petronet LNG Limited, India’s largest LNG importer, will soon form a joint venture with Japanese and Sri Lankan companies for an LNG terminal near Colombo, Petronet said in a statement today.Sri Lanka has decided to go ahead with the setting up of an LNG terminal near Colombo with Indian and Japanese companies. The two countries in their efforts to strengthen relations have been in discussions on this issue since last more than one year. The Sri Lankan Government issued a Letter of Intent to the Govt. of India during the visit of External Affairs Minister to Colombo on September 1. It’s a giant step towards energy security of Sri Lanka and underscores the ‘neighbourhood first’ policy of Prime Minister Modi. It shall pave the way for further cementing primeval bonds. (Colombo Gazette) Important discussions were held between Minister of Petroleum Resources Development, Sri Lanka and Minister of Petroleum & Natural Gas, India in New Delhi in October 2016 which was followed by numerous meetings at Secretary/ Joint Secretary Level. The LNG terminal would be set up on the western coast of Sri Lanka in close vicinity of Colombo where most of the power projects(operating mainly on costly liquid fuel)are located.The Colombo Metropolitan Area is inhabited by more than 5 million people or roughly 25% of the total population of Sri Lanka generating over 50% of the GDP. The LNG terminal near Colombo would improve economics of various power plants and also generate immense direct and indirect benefits for vast majority of Sri Lankan people.Sri Lankan economy is growing at a rapid pace of 4 to 5% and primary energy consumption is estimated to increase to 19 MMTOE by the year 1930. As of now, 82% of the primary energy consumption is met through petroleum products and bio-mass. Not much success has been achieved so far in development of any indigenous gas fields. LNG imports is a significant solution to fuel the growth of this nation. This will also usher in green economic growth in Sri Lanka with development of a gas based economy and also reaffirm traditionally and friendly relations between two countries and their continuing endeavors to enhance bilateral relations through increased economic, investment and development cooperation for mutual benefits of the two nations. read more

US Federal Reserve policymakers considering a slightly faster rate rise in 2015

WASHINGTON – Federal Reserve policymakers have slightly increased their estimate of what the Fed’s benchmark interest rate will be at the end of 2015 compared with their estimate three months ago.The Fed has kept its benchmark rate at a record-low level near zero since 2008 to try to boost economic growth. Most economists expect the first rate increase to happen by the middle of next year. A Fed statement indicated little change in the timing of that first increase.The median short-term interest rate supported by Fed policymakers at the end of 2015 is now 1.38 per cent, up from 1.13 per cent at its June meeting.The Fed expects slower growth this year and next than in its last set of projections issued in June.Fed policymakers expect the economy to grow just 2 per cent to 2.2 per cent this year, down from their June forecast of 2.1 per cent to 2.3 per cent. That reduction likely reflects the sharp contraction in the first quarter of this year: 2.1 per cent at an annual rate. The economy has rebounded solidly since then.Policymakers forecast growth of 2.6 per cent to 3 per cent in 2015, down from an earlier forecast of 3 per cent to 3.2 per cent.The central bank updates its economic projections four times a year. The forecasts serve as guides for its interest rate decisions.The interest rate figures are based on the stated preferences of each member of the Fed’s policymaking committee.Fed chair Janet Yellen has cautioned reading too much into the interest rate figures.

Mens Basketball Andrew Dakich and Ohio State shine from behind the arc

Ohio State graduate transfer Andrew Dakich (13) attempts a three pointer in the first half of the game against Maryland on Jan. 11 in the Schottenstein Center. Ohio State won 91-69. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorThe Ohio State men’s basketball team could not miss from beyond the arc Thursday night against Maryland.After what was beginning to look like a tough game for the Buckeyes, they quickly turned things around when redshirt senior Andrew Dakich, a pass-first point guard, began knocking down 3s. Ohio State shot its season high from 3-point range, making 17-of-29 shots and shooting 58.6 percent from distance.The Buckeyes’ 17 3-pointers against Maryland tied for second in program history for most triples in a game, marked the most against a Big Ten opponent and the most ever at home. Eight different players contributed to the team’s 3-pointers, even former walk-on guard Joey Lane. Most remarkably was Dakich, who is not a high-volume shooter, yet scored a career-high 11 points against the Terrapins.Dakich scored all 11 of his points during his team’s 31-12 run to end the first half that put the Buckeyes back on top of the Terrapins after trailing early. He provided the Buckeyes with an offensive spark, and was his team’s second-leading scorer heading into halftime. Head coach Chris Holtmann said he was looking for this kind of performance from Dakich.“I was talking to a really close coaching friend on the way home from Michigan State and he said to me … ‘You know Dakich is going to have to step up in a conference game and make a few open 3s. You know he’s just going to have to do that,’” Holtmann said. “I think we kind of encouraged him the last couple of days just to be ready because of how teams are going to play him, and low and behold, he was right.”Dakich, who scored just three points in the Buckeyes upset win against No. 1 Michigan State from a half-court shot to end the first half, wanted to take a different approach in this game after hearing Holtmann wanted and needed him to shoot more.“I actually saw that interview and for him to answer those questions, like alright now I really have to start shooting,” Dakich said. “My dad is always like, ‘Dude just shoot the ball sometimes.’ But [redshirt junior forward] Keita [Bates-Diop], [senior forward Jae’Sean Tate], I try to get those guys the ball, and I try to be efficient with the ball and putting it in the right positions. Tonight, I was open and fortunate enough to knock them down.”Ohio State’s finished with its second-highest assist total of the season with 25, while turning the ball over just nine times. That passing allowed Bates-Diop to shoot 6-for-8 from 3-point range. Both guards C.J. Jackson and Kam Williams finished the game with two makes from beyond the arc. Despite another convincing win against a notable Big Ten competitor from Ohio State, Holtmann said he does not think performances like Thursday’s should be the expectation for the Buckeyes in their remaining conference games.“I don’t think we can ever expect to make 17 3s in a game, I guess that’s what I mean. I think that’s unrealistic,” Holtmann said. “We made some shots tonight that on an average night we’re probably not going to make.” read more

A new iPad is hours away what do you think well see

first_imgToday Apple will have its March 2nd event and we’ll finally get to meet the iPad 2. Things might not be exactly as they have been in the past, with Steve Jobs on medical leave, but you can bet there will be a a lot to talk about before, during, and after the unveiling of the new iPad (and anything else today may bring).We’ve heard a tremendous amount of rumors about the next iPad, opening the door to a multitude of possibilities. Maybe the iPad 2 will be available in white, with DisplayPort, Thunderbolt, a carbon fiber back, and a 7-inch screen, just to combine some of the less likely rumors. Maybe it will be delayed, maybe it will have an SD slot, and a high resolution display. Or maybe it’ll be a rather slight improvement on the original iPad, making for something akin to an iPad 1.5. It’s still anyone’s guess right now.AdChoices广告The rumor mill is going strong, with some people seemingly more informed than others. We don’t have any special information, but we’ve done a lot of reading and we’re guessing that some of you have as well.  So fill us in–based on your reading and experience, give us an educated guess on what you think think the iPad 2 will be like.I’ll kick things off with my personal guess, and then please do continue in the comments.I’m guessing the iPad 2 will not be a revolutionary change from the iPad, in fact I’m playing this one very conservative. I’m not expecting a higher resolution display, a carbon fiber back, a 7-inch screen, or any of the more extreme things we’ve heard. In my estimation we’ll see a modest spec bump (hopefully to a dual-core processor, but almost definitely faster and with more RAM), front/rear cameras, and some slight changes to the chassis. These changes could make for a thinner, sleeker iPad and possibly something with improved audio. I’m torn on the issue of NFC–some outlets seemed very confident of it, but talk has tapered off in the last month–but my guess is we don’t see it tomorrow.I’m guessing the iPad 2 will be the iPhone 3GS  equivalent–it’ll get an already compelling and competitive product to up speed with the competition and it’ll throw in a few cool features so iPad owners have to at least consider upgrading. I see these as being a performance bump, the FaceTime camera, a rear camera, and possibly an SD card slot. I’d guess we see a late March to early April release date and, yes, I do think it will come in white.What do you expect to see?last_img read more

Gordon wants Celtic to build momentum

I don’t think we conceded a shot on target and to eventually get the win and the three points is a huge start for us,” he added.last_img read more

Cover Critique New Yorks Spitzer Cover

first_imgNew York magazine is no stranger to controversial covers (see its Lindsay Lohan cover and accompanying, server-melting photo shoot a few weeks back). But when the story of New York governor Eliot Spitzer’s shocking involvement in a prostitution ring broke early (Monday) in the magazine’s print cycle (New York publishes on Mondays), it put the magazine in a tricky spot: it would be six days until it had its turn—six days of New York Post covers, blog posts, tabloid headlines and late-night joke fodder—to weigh in with a cover of its own. And it delivered a memorable, edgy one.We asked some of our design friends to critique New York’s Spitzer cover. First up, Tim O’Brien, the illustrator behind the subject of our last cover critique—Rolling Stone’s Obama.NAME: Tim O’BrienTITLE: freelance illustrator; VP, the Society of IllustratorsCRITIQUE: The March 24th cover of New York Magazine is a funny and effective catharsis for the shocked New Yorkers. Swept into office with a wave of hope and enthusiasm, it was all undone by lust and hypocrisy. The cover image, an awkward shot of Spitzer shot from above making him look small is effective in shrinking a small man even smaller. Not knowing where to put his hands he forms a halo over his crotch; completely unintentional I’m sure but there it is. The use of white isolating his figure adds to the look, one that is reminiscent of the famous George Lois Esquire cover of Muhammad Ali pierced by arrows. The cherry on the top is a Barbara Kruger-esque sign and arrow that sends it over the top. Over the top is what this story is and the cover is perfect. NAME: Laura WallTITLE: design director, Pace CommunicationsCRITIQUE: Wow. What a good reminder to NEVER run for public office. New York magazine held nothing back on this cover. It’s clean, powerful and probably award-winning. I’d hate to be Spitzer—how completely humiliating!NAME: Anthony FickeTITLE: creative director, CAB CommunicationsCRITIQUE: Well, I must say I’m pretty open-minded when it comes to design, but to put it bluntly … this is pretty ballsy of a cover. The power created from this cover is that you were able to sum up an entire nation’s exact same thought with only one word! Nothing else needs to be said on the cover, yet you are compelled to read the story, if only to see what lines the author might have crossed. Most importantly, the goal of intriguing the reader has definitely been achieved. On another note, I really like that the New York logo breaks away from the edge to give a photo-negative feel.NAME: Marco TurelliTITLE: art director, Wine EnthusiastCRITIQUE: Image and concept is brilliant! Will it sell magazines based on lack of cover lines and starkness of image? Who knows. Do I see it winning awards? Probably. Does Mr. Spitzer want to get away? You bet he does. NAME: José ReyesTITLE: creative director/Principal Metaleap DesignCRITIQUE: I appreciate how they showed a photo of Eliot in a way that was not disdainful, disrespectful  or shaming—that would be too easy. Instead, they showed how everyone knew him—for better or worse—which makes for a much more compelling cover. An argument for the internal battle of personal restraint and what we allow the world to see vs. what we are capable of doing and hiding from others seems to also be a subtle statement that the editors are making with the smiling Spitzer. If so, well done. The cover, in my opinion, is provocative, clear, succinct, humorous and timely—perfect.What do you think?

The New Republic Expands Bundled Content Strategy

first_imgStarting today, The New Republic is offering a new subscription bundle called TNR Society. The strategy ups the ante on paid content, placing a premium on both print and online.The move is a shift toward pushing subscribers up the value chain. Until now, print subscribers had access to all content online, says Rebecca Grossman-Cohen, TNR’s executive director of strategic marketing. Going forward, TNR’s pricing tiers will start at $29.97 for digital-only access, which includes a digital replica and online content. That level has about 10,000 subscribers, Grossman-Cohen says. Next is the $39.97 level, called Home Delivery, which includes the print magazine. The top tier and newest addition to the bunch is TNR Society. For $44.97 subscribers at this level get the print magazine, full access to the Web site and its 95 years of archive content. Also included are special newsletter subscriptions and invitations to events. “We’re creating a package that’s more appealing to subscribers, giving them more access and additional perks and repackaging print and digital slightly differently,” says Grossman-Cohen. Selected content will also be put behind the paywall. For now, it’s mostly the long-form and analytical pieces that run in print, along with similar content that’s online-only. “Our long-form journalism is the product of intensive reporting and extensive editing, an incredible investment of time and resources,” said editor Frank Foer in a statement. “When it appears in print, we put a price tag on it—and we’re committed to doing the same online.”Grossman-Cohen is not anticipating much of a change in user experience. Visitors will only be prompted to log in or subscribe when they attempt to access the premium content. A substantial portion of the site is still open.last_img read more

Facebook ends Sony Microsoft access to friends data under FTC deal

first_imgFacebook says it will change how it handles user data.  James Martin / CNET Facebook was hit with a $5 billion fine from the Federal Trade Commission on Wednesday. As part of its settlement with the FTC, the social network will change how it handles user data. This also means adjusting the information that its partners can access. Facebook said Wednesday that data integrations with partners should already have “wound down” but that it was recently alerted to a bug that allowed a dozen partners to continue to access data. Of those, Microsoft and Sony were the only two that “continued to access limited types of friends data.” Facebook said it hasn’t found evidence that any data was used in violation of its policies, but it’s restricting their access “immediately.” “This was our mistake, and we are correcting it,” Ime Archibong, vice president of product partnerships, said in a Facebook blog post. “We will be operating under a comprehensive new framework for protecting people’s privacy and the information they give us. The order requires a fundamental shift in the way we work.”A Microsoft spokesperson said it “respected all user preferences” during its work with Facebook.  Facebook will also introduce new controls for people to manage apps they use with Facebook, reward those who tip off the company to apps misusing data and add a new review process for all new API or expansion of existing APIs. Along with the FTC fine, the social media platform was hit with another fine Wednesday — this one from the Securities Exchange Commission in the amount of $100 million related to data privacy. Sony didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.  $999 See it Turo: Save $30 on any car rental Mentioned Above Apple iPhone XS (64GB, space gray) Mobile Security See It Share your voice $261 at Daily Steals via Google Express Tags $210 at Best Buy Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student.

Facebook Microsoft Sony,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. Formerly known as the Google Home Hub, Google’s Nest Hub packs a wealth of Google Assistant goodness into a 7-inch screen. At $59, this is within a buck of the best price we’ve seen.

Researcher claims he found UFO on moons Waterman crater seeks Elon Musks

first_img Close The fish shaped UFO could be an alien ship, claims Scott C. Waring    / UFO Sightings DailyPopular extraterrestrial researcher Scott C Waring has claimed that he has discovered an alien ship on the surface of the moon. In a recent post on his website ‘UFO Sightings Daily’, Waring claimed that he spotted this image after analyzing a NASA image, and he assured that it is a gigantic alien UFO which might be more than 10 miles long.”I felt like maybe I should let Elon Musk know about the 10 mile long alien ship that I found. This particular craft is in Waterman Crater on Earths moon. I thought that if I let him know that such a high tech ship with a length of about 10-11 miles long existed, that perhaps he may take an interest in salvaging it. Humanity needs to travel out of our solar system to colonize on other worlds and this craft may still be working,” wrote Waring on his website. NASA moon rock could be a fake one, claims researcher    / UFO Sightings DailyWaring added that a spacecraft measuring more than ten miles could adopt thousands of people, and if the craft is working, it could play a crucial role in elevating the chances of space colonization in the future. The alien researcher also urged SpaceX founder Elon Musk to look into this image and asked him to salvage the ship, and later pasting a Tesla logo on it.Even though the picture shared by Waring has now gone viral, experts have dismissed his claims stating that it is a peculiar nature of the human brain called pareidolia which is resulting in these visual hallucinations. As per experts, pareidolia is the capability of the human brain to form recognizable images on unknown patterns.A few days back, Waring had claimed that NASA has never gone to the moon. Waring substantiated these claims after pointing out a news story in 2009 that states that the moon rock safeguarded at the Dutch National Museum is actually fake, and it is nothing but a simple petrified wood. Waring also urged the United States government to give their space missions to Elon Musk as he used to keep his promises.Earlier, Waring had also requested United States president Donald Trump to make him the head of NASA. Waring claimed that he is capable of unveiling mysteries of alien life if he gets appointed as the NASA chief.

Windows 10 Threat Mitigation advancements

first_imgWindows 10 Threat Mitigation advancements by Martin Brinkmann on September 02, 2017 in Windows – 2 commentsThe new Windows as a Service model of Microsoft has helped Microsoft implement new threat mitigations and protection against threats faster than in the previous model that saw new releases happen every three years.Windows as a Service evolves the operating system constantly, or more precisely, twice a year with feature updates around March and September of each year.A new blog post on Technet compares the old release model to the new in regards to threat mitigation, and highlights improvements and advancements that Microsoft made since the release of Windows 10.Windows 10 Threat Mitigation advancementsThe author compares exploitation a decade ago to exploitation techniques that are used today. Microsoft’s take away from that was that the faster release of Windows 10 feature updates would reduce the impact that new exploitation techniques had on the Windows population.The graphic that you see above shows new threat mitigation techniques that Microsoft added to the first four versions of Windows 10.The blog article highlights important mitigations afterwards:User Mode Font Driver (UMFD) — A feature implemented in the original release version of Windows 10. It moved font processing into an App Container in user mode. Additionally, administrators may disable the processing of untrusted fonts for a process using the Process Font Disable policy. (see Block programs from loading untrusted fonts in Windows 10)Win32k Syscall Filtering — The Win32k subystem is the number one target to escape the sandbox because of its large attack surface and its 1200 APIs. The feature limits the list if APIs that can be targeted.Less Privileged App Container (LPAC) — LPAC is a restricted version of App Container that denies access by default.Structured Exception Handling Overwrite Protection (SEHOP) — Designed to block exploit techniques that use the Structured Exception Handler (SEH) overwrite technique.Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) — This technique loads dynamic link libraries into random memory address space to mitigate attacks that target specific memory locations.Heap protections — Windows 10 protects the heap in various ways, for instance by using heap metadata hardening, and through heap guard pages. Kernel pool protections — Protects the memory that is used by the kernel.Control Flow Guard — Needs to be compiled into software programs. Microsoft added this to Edge, Internet Explorer 11 and other Windows 10 features. Control Flow Guard detects if an attack changes the “intended flow of code”.Protected Processes — Protected processes are important or system critical processes. Windows 10 prevents untrusted processes from tampering with protected processes. In Windows 10, security applications may be put into the protected process space.Universal Windows apps protections — Windows Store apps — UWP and converted Win32 programs — are vetted before they are made available.No Child Proc — Designed to block code execution by launching child processes.Microsoft mentions the main objectives when implementing threat mitigations into Windows 10 afterwards:Reducing the attack surface of Windows Platform Takes soft target out of the picture Eliminates existing exploitation techniques so that new techniques need to be found. Reducing impact of vulnerability by isolation. Make overall exploitation harder and expensiveClosing WordsWindows as a Service guarantees faster deployment of exploit mitigation techniques according to Microsoft. While that is probably true for some techniques, others may have also been added to previous versions of Windows as updates.Now Read: Windows Defender Exploit Guard – Native EMET in Windows 10 (via Born)SummaryArticle NameWindows 10 Threat Mitigation advancementsDescriptionAn overview of Windows 10’s Windows as a Service threat mitigation model, important anti-exploit techniques, and a comparison to the old system.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

This outlook is due to a partial realization of major healthcare policies and initiatives, technology advancements and value-based care driving the adoption and need for consumer-centric targeted therapies. Future drugs and medical devices will be more targeted to meet the unique needs of emerging markets (e.g. China, India, Brazil) which demonstrate high growth opportunities compared developed markets (e.g., the United States and Western Europe. Growing at a CAGR of 4.8 percent, the industry is likely to reach revenue of $1,731.8 billion.Current predictions and trends from the analysis encouraging transformation include:Growth in remote patient monitoring (RPM) will start to accelerate beyond previous projections based on a convergence of regulatory, technology and ergonomic factors;A selective churn in the mobile health app space will differentiate the small number of vetted apps that will emerge as the best choice for serious health users;Life sciences and device industries will experience an increase in collaboration as well as merger and acquisition activities as they design products to prevent the onset of chronic and degenerative diseases;Artificial intelligence (AI) will play an important role in helping radiologists better interpret scans, reduce scan times, improve workflow efficiency and improve quality. AI will also make medical implants smarter as a way to intelligently regulate specific health conditions;Alternate payment models will drive the demand for next-generation revenue cycle management solutions. The adoption of alternative payment models will drive the usage of robust and agile analytics software that automates reporting and visualization of patient-specific information;Immunotherapy will become part of the toolbox for treatment of various types of cancers. Immuno-oncology will remain hot as leading pharmaceutical companies race to market the first chimeric antigen receptor T-cell (CAR-T) therapy in 2017; andDecreasing cost of next-generation sequencing tests to below the $1,000 mark will shift the application focus from research to clinical use cases.The new analysis, Healthcare Industry Outlook, 2017, which is part of Frost & Sullivan’s Advanced Medical Technologies Growth Partnership Service program, explores how the global healthcare landscape is expected to evolve in 2017. It identifies key trends impacting the industry from lifesciences, medical technologies, remote patient monitoring, healthcare information technologies, care delivery and business model perspectives.“2017 will be a tipping point for mainstream adoption of popular digital health solutions (e.g., wearables, telehealth), and transition of noble technologies from research to actionable clinical applications (e.g. POCT Dx tools, AI, robotics, and image-guided therapies),” noted Frost & Sullivan Transformational Health Research Analyst Kamaljit Behera.For more information: www.frost.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Sponsored Content | Case Study | Radiation Dose Management | August 13, 2019 The Challenge of Pediatric Radiation Dose Management Radiation dose management is central to child patient safety.

Palmer threw for four touchdowns to lead the Arizo

first_imgPalmer threw for four touchdowns to lead the Arizona Cardinals to a 48-23 victory over the Chicago Bears, who lost Jay Cutler to a hamstring injury Sunday.Palmer connected with Larry Fitzgerald for three of the TDs, giving him seven in two games after returning last week against New Orleans from a torn anterior cruciate ligament that cut short his season after just six games a year ago. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Clauson’s long pass on the opening drive of the second half got picked off by Patrick Peterson, leading to a 28-yard touchdown catch by Fitzgerald that made it 35-20. David Johnson added a 13-yard scoring run on Arizona’s next possession that bumped the lead to 22 points, sending Arizona to a lopsided victory after a wild first half.Along with Johnson’s team record return on the game’s opening kickoff, there were two long pass-interference penalties by Chicago’s Kyle Fuller and Alan Ball that led to touchdowns for the Cardinals. The Bears also got a pair of field goals in the final minute of the half thanks to a fumble recovery on a punt and an interception by Jared Allen.All that was overshadowed by Cutler’s injury.Arizona had just grabbed a 21-14 lead when he threw a pass behind Martellus Bennett, resulting in an easy interception for Jefferson. As he tried to make a tackle, Cutler got stiff-armed and landed on his right shoulder. But the Bears said he injured his hamstring. – / 44 The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer (3) scrambles away from Chicago Bears defensive tackle Jarvis Jenkins (96) during the first half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Sept. 20, 2015, in Chicago. (AP Photo/Michael Conroy) CHICAGO — Carson Palmer is back — and in a big way. Top Stories 3 Comments   Share   Palmer was 17 of 24 with 185 yards to improve to 15-2 in his last 17 starts, David Johnson returned the opening kickoff a club-record 108 yards and added a rushing TD, and Chris Johnson ran for 72 yards with Andre Ellington sidelined by a sprained right knee for the Cardinals (2-0).And, coach Bruce Arians gained a measure of revenge after the Bears hired Marc Trestman over him in January 2013.Cutler walked to the locker room after he was stiff-armed trying to tackle Tony Jefferson on a 26-yard interception return late in the first half.That was the biggest development in a game that included several big plays that ended with Palmer and the Cardinals prevailing and Chicago (0-2) remaining winless under new coach John Fox.Cutler got off to a fine start, completing his first eight passes for 120 yards before getting picked off. He threw a 48-yard touchdown to Josh Bellamy. But the injury on Jefferson’s interception return was another big blow for a team that was already missing its top receiver with Alshon Jeffery out because of a hamstring problem.Now, the Bears could be missing their quarterback when they visit defending NFC champion Seattle. That would likely mean a start for Jimmy Clausen, who was 14 of 23 for 121 yards after Cutler went down.
