Albertans will see benefits from TPP deal economist

first_imgAlbertans could benefit greatly from the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal Canada signed onto Tuesday.Economist Trevor Tombe, Associate Professor at the University of Calgary, said Western Canada’s trade with TPP countries is much higher than the rest of the country and accounts for two to three per cent of GDP.Tombe said it could be big for some sectors, including industries looking to gain a foothold in any of the other 10 countries involved in the deal.“Japan’s tariff is 39 per cent, so they pay a 39 per cent tax on any beef that we export out. That’s going to fall dramatically to about nine per cent eventually once it’s fully phased in,” he said.He said Albertan consumers might also notice cheaper imports.The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association is already calling the deal “fantastic.”last_img read more

Morocco on High Alert after Terrorist Attacks in Tunisia, Kuwait, France

Rabat – Morocco has raised its security alert to the highest level following last week’s terrorist attacks in Tunisia, Kuwait and France.The Moroccan authorities are said to have raised the security alert to the maximum in the wake of Friday’s 26th terrorist attacks that left at least seventy people dead in three countries.Instructions have been given to the various security services to take the necessary preventative measures and to be prepared to face potential terrorist threats. According to media reports, the Moroccan authorities are also increasing vigilance to help maintain safety and security around sensitive sites, including hotels, synagogues and churches.This comes after terror group the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, claimed responsibility for the deadly shoot out in Tunisia, as well as the attacks in France and Kuwait .The killings also came after chilling threat from the extremist group that the holy month of Ramadan ‘will have lots of surprises.’The group promised ‘tenfold’ reward in paradise for “martyrs” who target ‘the unbelievers’ during the holy month of Ramadan in comparison to other months.“So, O Muslims embark and hasten towards Jihad. And O mujahidin everywhere, rush and move to make Ramadan a month of disaster for the Kuffar (unbelievers),” read the ISIS statement urging Jihadists to carry out attack against westerners.It remains unclear whether the attacks on the Tunisian resort town of Sousse, a decapitation and an attempt to blow up an American-owned gas factory in France and the suicide bombing at a Kuwaiti Shiite mosque during Friday prayers were coordinated or connected. read more

Best Buy display TVs show porn to shoppers

first_imgBest Buy is having to apologize after its Greenville store managed to show pornography running for several minutes across a range of 55-inch smart TVs. The footage was seen by at least two families who had brought their young children to the store.The reason porn made it on to the TVs was due to a lack of security on the store’s Wi-Fi setup. Best Buy say that two individuals accessed the Wi-Fi connection and managed to upload the content on to the TVs. Anyone flicking through the channels would eventually find it.According to the Greenville store manager it wasn’t the first time this had happened, suggesting no one at the store knows how to change the security settings on their router. One shopper by the name of Gloria Berg was so upset by the incident she has filed a complaint with police. According to Berg, it took the manager several minutes to come and turn the porn off, and then it was clear no one really cared this had happened. She felt “extremely violated.”Although Best Buy state two individuals uploaded the porn to the TVs, it is unclear if they have taken any action against them. Local police have also yet to assign an officer to the case and said they need to see the footage before deciding what laws have been violated.Unless Best Buy have now changed the security settings at the Greenville store, it’s likely this could keep happening. We may also see copycat incidents happening at other Best Buy outlets unless there’s a company-wide security check performed to ensure outside access isn’t possible.Read more at 7 On Your Sidelast_img read more

La pollution atteint le pire niveau à Pekin

first_imgLa pollution atteint le pire niveau à PekinSelon l’ambassade des Etats-Unis en Chine, la pollution de l’air, à Pékin, a atteint un niveau jugé “dangereux”. La capitale était dans un tel nuage de gaz, ce matin et hier, que de nombreux vols ont été perturbés et des axes routiers fermés.La pollution à Pékin en Chine est alimentée par de nombreuses centrales thermiques à charbon, les industries dans la conurbation et près de cinq millions de véhicules dans les rues (pour 20 millions d’habitants). En 2010, environ 2.000 nouvelles voitures étaient vendues chaque jour dans la capitale, aggravant les embouteillages malgré la présence de six périphériques !À lire aussiLa messagerie cryptée Telegram victime d’une cyber-attaque, la Chine pointée du doigtOr, chaque jour, l’ambassade des Etats-Unis à Pékin calcule le degré de pollution atmosphérique. Mais hier celle-ci a atteint un niveau record et atteignant même le stade de “dangereux” aujourd’hui. Des niveaux particulièrement exceptionnels pour un mois d’octobre ensoleillé. Toutefois, comme on pouvait s’y attendre, les relevés du ministère chinois de l’Environnement ont grandement différé de ceux de la chancellerie américaine, indique Sciences et Avenir. Ainsi, au gouvernement, on a estimé que l’air n’était que “légèrement pollué” dimanche, alors que la visibilité ne dépassait pas quelques centaines de mètres. Le Bureau de météorologie de Pékin a diffusé dimanche trois alertes sur le brouillard causé par la pollution, à la suite desquelles les autorités ont fermé six autoroutes et retardé ou annulé plus de 200 vols, a rapporté la presse. Face à la situation, même le journal officiel Global Times a exhorté lundi le gouvernement à “se montrer coopératif et à éviter les informations déroutantes”. Quant aux habitants, des internautes ont indiqué sur des sites et des blogs souffrir de difficultés respiratoires et de vertiges. “Nous respirons des poisons”, écrit ainsi Xuemanzi, un blogueur. Selon les estimations des chercheurs, 300.000 personnes meurent chaque année en Chine de maladies cardiaques et de cancer du poumon liés à la pollution de l’air.Le 31 octobre 2011 à 19:55 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

I read just fine dipsh*t and once again, Wrestleview is reporting on the article that WWE.com put up itself regarding its biggest star. Whether or not you consider it a non-story doesn’t matter.

Facebook Pinterest Nobody was confused. God this site .ing sucks. You are a pretentious moron. In your false analogy, you equate not liking the subject of a documentary to not liking a website and it’s content. A better analogy would be…this documentary was poorly made and the YouTube channel is terrible. Which begs the question, why would you go back to the channel just to tell everyone that it sucks. His comment refers to you already thinking wrestleview sucks, yet you are still here reading and commenting. Probably because you don’t get laid very much. If at all. Cheers! WWE.com is featuring an article regarding John Cena returning to Smackdown Live in a few weeks on July 4 and the confusion regarding his “free agent” status.If you recall, WWE released a video promo earlier this week promoting Cena’s return on July 4 and listed him as a “free agent” at the end of the clip.According to the WWE article, Cena became a free agent following the Superstar Shake Up that took place after WrestleMania 33. Cena has been off television since proposing to Nikki Bella t at WrestleMania this past April in Orlando.The article does tease the possibility of Cena either staying with Smackdown Live or possibly making the jump to RAW going forward. Either way, it would be appear to clear up a lot of confusion regarding the promotion by WWE in the last week.Recommended videosPowered by AnyClipJohn Cena Says WWE Doesn`t Need HimVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPauseUnmuteDuration 0:32/Current Time 0:06Loaded: 100.00%0:06Remaining Time -0:26 FullscreenUp NextThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Pharmed for growth Diabetics cardiac patients are new rural drug markets

first_imgReutersBig international drug companies are set to cash in on the sharp rise in diabetes and heart disease cases in the country, with their business penetrating the rural areas that represent at least 70 percent of the Indian population.Understanding demand is very high for cheap drugs in villages; if big pharma can reach these patients and make even a slim profit the sheer numbers could make for huge returns in the long run.Switzerland-based Novartis AG to Indianapolis-based Eli Lilly & Co will now move to expand their operations and sales to smaller cities and villages. They also plan to learn more about healthcare needs of rural people and spread awareness on diseases like cholesterol and diabetes, Bloomberg reported. Villagers mostly involved with farming or a profession that yields scanty income where rural Indians hardly have money to afford a square meal a day, have no idea about diseases like diabetes and heart problems that may lead to slow death if unchecked.Scroll down for video An employee of a pharma company works inside the company’s research and development centre in Bengaluru on October 16, 2015ReutersTo fight this, a pilot program funded by Eli Lilly, the world’s largest diabetes medicine maker sends community workers on a door-to-door check-up in such areas with tablet computers programmed to screen people for diabetes and hypertension. It also trains local health workers.Drug giant Novartis AG has also initiated a “for-profit social initiative” to help rural India by sending doctors and cheap medicines to different corners of the country.Such initiatives drive big companies to grow into untapped market segments and increase the scope to expand businesses to raise more demand for their products.Is India a centre for global pharma profit?Growth in volume of drugs sold globally was seen rising largely from the largest developing markets like India and China. While demand in the developed economies has lost momentum, India and China hold the bright spot by derisking the profits of such pharma companies, according to a report by Quintiles IMS Holdings Inc, last year.Drug spending in India is expected to pick up at a faster rate to as high as $30 billion from $17 billion over the time frame of 2021. Also, according to a McKinsey report, about 28 million households in the villages have come out of the lowest income class — which could mean that demand for international drugs which are priced higher than the locally manufactured ones will increase over the coming years.last_img read more

Control Netflixs stream quality and block spoilers with Super Netflix

first_imgControl Netflix’s stream quality and block spoilers with Super Netflix by Martin Brinkmann on January 14, 2018 in Google Chrome – Last Update: January 14, 2018 – 4 commentsSuper Netflix is a free browser extension for Google Chrome designed to give Netflix users more control of the service.  The extension comes with some much-requested features, among them options to block spoilers on Netflix, to skip intros automatically, and to set the desired playback quality.Netflix is a popular TV and movie streaming service. It is available almost anywhere, and you can watch it using a TV, computer, mobile device, and pretty much any device with a display, Internet connectivity and application support.If you happen to watch Netflix in Google Chrome, you may find Super Netflix useful. The extension installs without issue in the browser and requests access permissions on all Netflix domains only. That’s refreshing as many extensions of its kind request access to all browser tabs.Super NetflixThe extension adds an icon to Chrome’s address bar that you can interact with. You may use it for the following things:Set the desired video bitrate on Netflix. The default bitrate is set to auto which means that Netflix picks an appropriate bitrate automatically for playback. Simply type a different bitrate, e.g. 2050, 1470 or 510 to force use of that bitrate instead. Useful to make sure that streams use the highest possible quality or a stream quality that works best for your bandwidth.Automatically skip intros. Intros may be fun to watch once or twice, but if you like to binge-watch, they may become boring fast and waste precious time. This setting skips intros automatically.Block spoilers. Netflix reveals some information automatically when you browse the available shows and movies. A thumbnail screenshot may reveal important information, or descriptions may catch your eye. This feature blocks those automatically.The browser extension displays buttons on top of the play area when you play a stream on Netflix. These buttons provide further control and options.You may use them to load subtitles, change the Netflix playback speed using the “secret” bitrate menu, change the video speed rate, or go ten seconds backward or forward.The subtitle option may be useful, especially if you happen to have access to Netflix in other countries as some or even many of the shows and movies there may not be available in your native language.Related articlesDownload shows with the Netflix app for WindowsHow to get Netflix 1080p or 4K on non-Windows 10 devicesHere is why you can’t download Netflix content to your Android deviceImprove Netflix’s cellular data video qualityImprove Netflix with Flix Plus for ChromeRemove continue watching items on NetflixClosing WordsSuper Netflix is a nice to have extension for Chrome that gives you more control over Netflix.

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

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 Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) 2019 meeting in July. The system was pending U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval at AHRA, but received FDA 510(k) clearance in early August 2019.The system features a 33-inch aperture, large enough to place a wheelchair inside. It can be rotated 90 degrees in either direction and the deck can be parked in any position, making it easier for patients to get on and off the 660-pound weight table. The FluoroSpeed X1 offers controls that are ergonomic for technologists, with duplicate controls on each side for either a left- or right-handed tech. The machine also has a large aperture to allow swallow studies.The FluoroSpeed X1 comes equipped with a 17 x 17-inch dynamic digital X-ray detector (FPD) in the table bucky, allowing it to both be used for fluoroscopy as well as radiographic exams.Read more about the FluoroSpeed X1:Shimadzu Medical Systems Receives FDA 510(k) for FluoroSpeed X1 RF System Mammography | April 15, 2019 VIDEO: A Discussion on Proposed FDA Rules for Mammography Reporting Wendie Berg, M.D., Ph.D., FACR, chief scientific advisor to DenseBreast-info.org and professor of radiology at University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine/Magee-Women’s Hospital of UPMC, spoke with ITN Editorial Director Melinda Taschetta-Millane about some of the proposed amendments to the language being used for mammography reporting and quality improvement.Read the article “FDA Proposes New Rules for Mammography Reporting and Quality Improvement” Sponsored Videos View all 142 items CT Angiography (CTA) | August 07, 2019 VIDEO: Walk Around of a GE Cardiographe Dedicated Cardiac CT Scanner This is a quick walk around of the GE Healthcare Cardiographe dedicated cardiac CT system on display at the Society Of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) 2019 meeting.

by Victoria Ahearn The Canadian Press Posted

first_img by Victoria Ahearn, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 6, 2019 4:00 am PDT Polar bear Agee is shown on the set for the film “Arctic,” in a handout photo. THE CANADIAN PRESS/HO-Mark Dumas MANDATORY CREDIT B.C. polar bear Agee bringing realistic touch to films in age of CGI AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO — Canadian film star Agee is a bit of a diva at work.She travels to movie sets in a 12-metre-long trailer that has a wading pool on hot days, and doesn’t like co-stars or crew near her while she prepares for her scenes. The 24-year-old also gives “stink eye” to anyone onset who talks to her manager, Mark Dumas, except for his wife, Dawn, the only other person Agee will tolerate while working.“I have a wife and a mistress,” says Dumas, referring to Dawn and Agee. “My mistress is 800 pounds, blond and cranky.”Agee’s behaviour is understandable. After all, she is an apex predator — a polar bear, to be exact.The Abbotsford, B.C.-based bear has starred in a variety of screen projects, the latest being the survival drama “Arctic,” directed by Joe Penna.Opening Friday in Toronto and other cities in subsequent weeks, “Arctic” stars Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen as the sole survivor of a plane crash in a remote and snowy area of the frigid North.But work for Agee and other animals is slowing down in the film world as CGI takes over.“Which is a shame,” says Dumas, who feels viewers are missing out on seeing “the majesty of such an incredible animal.”“CGI, to me, is a cartoon. The animals don’t look as real.”In “Arctic,” Agee appears in a scene involving a cave and, while she looks ferocious, it’s all an act.“She’s trained to open her mouth and show her teeth. She doesn’t make any noise,” says Dumas, noting her roar in the film was added in post-production.She does have sass behind the scenes, though.“She’s very selective on who she likes and who she doesn’t like,” says Dumas, noting no one is allowed into her working space that’s surrounded by a thin electric wire fence onset.“When I go away, she is a little upset and when I come back she’ll actually blow me off. If Dawn’s there she’ll go over and say hi to Dawn, love up to Dawn and then look at me like, ‘You’ve been gone.’”Agee shot her “Arctic” role about a year ago in a warehouse in Abbotsford.Her other credits include the 2014 Norwegian children’s drama “Operation Arctic” and 1996’s “Alaska” with Charlton Heston, which was her first movie. She also has her own Facebook page, Agee the Polar Bear.Dumas, who has been an animal co-ordinator and trainer for 47 years, got Agee specifically for “Alaska” when she was two months old from the Kolmarden Wildlife Park zoo in Sweden in 1995.He trained her through positive reinforcement, with the primary goal of making her a part of the family.“I make a commitment to these animals,” says Dumas, who has had various creatures on his four-hectare property over the years, including a grizzly bear, cougars, deer, wolves and eagles.“They work for me and then I work for them. You just don’t work ’em and throw ’em away. You’re with them or they’re with you for the rest of their lives.”Agee has her own swimming pool and pen on the Dumas property, with the option to roam around on the grass as she sees fit.She’s never been bred, and enjoys a diet of everything from chicken and salmon to pizza and Thai food.Agee views Dawn like a “sister” and is so close to Dumas, he’s been able to stick his head into her mouth. The couple also sometimes swims with Agee.When asked what he has to say to animal rights groups who think such creatures shouldn’t be in captivity, Dumas said: “If you saw the relationship I have with Agee, you’d be a fool to say that she is having a hard life. She really has it nice.”“If Agee were ill treated, I wouldn’t be able to lay down with her, swim with her and train her,” he added. “When I pull her trailer in front of her cage, she gets excited. It’s something that she likes to do. That happens because she is treated with a lot of respect.”Dumas was born in Los Angeles and says he “fell into” animal training while working on the lion ranch of an acquaintance’s father.“It’s a lifestyle,” said Dumas, adding he’s not in it for the money. “If I figured out what I’ve made throughout my life, I’ve probably averaged about five cents an hour.“You raise the animal from a baby, you spend a lot of time with it and no one’s paying you to do it, you just do it. And it’s a love you have.”Victoria Ahearn, The Canadian Presslast_img read more
