The Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) has declined to transport four elephants from eastern Assam’s Tinsukia to Ahmedabad for the July 4 Jagannath Rath Yatra until the Gauhati High Court resolves the matter and the State Forest Department clarifies an order of the Supreme Court regarding transfer of elephants.Assam-based animal rights activists Urmi Mala Das and Nandini Baruah had on Friday filed a public interest litigation at the high court challenging the Assam government’s decision to transport four juvenile elephants, two of them females, in railway wagons to Ahmedabad. Their PIL followed a petition filed via email to the court by Canada-based activist Sangeeta Iyer.PIL filed“We will not dispatch the elephants unless we receive a clarification sought from the Forest Division on an order by the Supreme Court. Besides, there is a PIL to watch out for,” said Masood Alom, the Additional Divisional Railway Manager of NFR’s Tinsukia Division. Hearing a case related to Kerala, the SC had in May 2016 said: “The state government shall not issue any ownership certificate to any of the persons in possession of elephants. That apart, the persons who are in possession of elephants shall not transfer the elephants outside the state nor shall they part with the elephants by way of transfer in any manner…” Officials of NRF’s zonal headquarters in Guwahati’s Maligaon confirmed the decision not to transport the elephants until the legal issues are resolved. They also trashed reports that the elephants were being dispatched quietly before the PIL is heard on Monday.

(Eds: With more inputs, additional quotes) By Philem Dipak Singh London, Aug 13 (PTI) Irony was at its cruellest as Usain Leo Bolt pulled up hurt in his final competitive race to end, in a cry of pain and agony, a decade of dominance that is unrivalled in the history of track and field. Bolt failed to finish the mens 4x100m relay race of the World Athletics Championships here after he pulled a hamstring at the home straight. The astonishing turn of events marred what was expected to be a golden farewell. Running the final race of his career, the 30-year-old Bolt, after taking the baton from his Jamaican teammate Yohan Blake, suffered cramps on his left hamstring as he tried, in vain, to chase down the British and American rivals in the last lap of the race. Needing to make a lot of ground, Bolt began his familiar initial long strides but could not produce the trademark explosive burst of speed and suddenly stumbled, hobbled a few strides before falling on the track in pain and agony. “Its cramp in his left hamstring but a lot of pain is from disappointment from losing the race. The last three weeks have been hard for him. We hope for the best for him,” Jamaican team doctor Kevin Jones said later. It was a terrible sight at the Olympic stadium, the theatre of his three gold winning exploits in the 2012 Olympic Games. Bolt went down on his knees with hands on his head in dejection and was then lying alone on the tracks for a while before Blake and the other teammates, Julian Forte and Omar McLeod, gathered around him. The towering Jamaican, who had dominated the sprint race like nobody else, was helped to his feet. As he limped over the finishing line, the crowd applauded him. The result sheet, however, showed DNF (Did Not Finish) against the Jamaicans. The scene this weekend was more heartbreaking than last Saturday when Bolt was beaten by his long-time rival Justin Gatlin in the 100m dash in his last individual race. The last time, Bolt took a lap of honour to acknowledge the support and adulation of the crowd. But this time, there was no lap of honour and with Britain winning the gold, the crowd gave more attention to their home heroes and Bolt disappeared to the medical room. For that matter, there was no kissing of the finish line nor the celebrated “Lightening Bolt pose, which fans around the world got used to all these years. The showman actually did not turn up on this night. In fact, it looked like the lap of honour he took while winning the bronze in the 100m dash on August 5 would be his final farewell to the crowd. But it is learnt that the IAAF and local organisers have decided to arrange a lap of honour on the final day of the championships. Britain won the gold in 37.47 seconds while United States (38.01) and Japan took the silver and bronze respectively. Bolt would have had his task cut out, if he did not suffer the injury, to fight his way into the gold medal picture, as he was some three meters behind the British counterpart when he took the baton from Blake. Gatlin, who was booed by the London crowd for snatching the gold medal from Bolt in the 100m, paid a tribute to his rival. “Usain Bolt is a great athlete. I am sorry he got this injury. I think it was the elements. But he is still the best in the world,” said Gatlin. “You cant let these championships define what he has done in the past. He has done amazing things. Hes still the man, you know. The was his farewell race and we wish him the best and hope he recovers soon,” added the American who ran the second leg in the relay race. “Usains name will always live on,” Bolts team-mate Omar McLeod, who ran the first leg, said. Bolt ended the World Championships in disappointment by collecting just a bronze but he will still be considered the greatest sprinter of all time and saviour of a sport for long mired in doping controversies. No man has ever dominated sprint like Bolt since he won a gold each in the 100m and 200m in the 2008 Beijing Olympics and for nearly 10 years, he strode like a colossus with his running prowess and charisma. He has won eight Olympic and 11 World Championships gold medals before coming here. He has won three gold each in all three Olympics he has taken part, but returned the gold he won in 4x100m relay in Beijing after team-mate Nesta Carter tested positive for a prohibited substance. He has won three gold in all World Championships from 2009 till this edition, except the 100m event in 2011, when he false started to be disqualified. He has also won a silver each in 200m and 4x100m relay in the 2007 Osaka World Championships. Taking into account the bronze in 100m here, he has won 22 medals in Olympics and World Championships taken together, with 19 of them gold. The Muhammed Ali of Athletics, as christened by world athletics body boss Sebastian Coe, Bolt is one of the most charismatic athletes across all sports and he would be remembered as someone who has brought more fans to athletics at a time when public cynicism of the sport was on the rise due to doping controversies. The latest — and the biggest — controversy to hit athletics was the Russian scandal in which the country was accused of systematic state-sponsored doping programme. Despite these scandals, Bolt kept the fans intact, his exploits and charisma brought more youngsters to the sport, a fact Coe has admitted. Bolts successes are unprecedented and all the short sprint records are his. He holds the 100m (9.58 seconds) and 200m (19.19 seconds) world records — both of them set during the 2009 Berlin World Championships. Since 2007, he has run 54 100m races (excluding heats) and won all but six. In 200m races since 2008, he has lost just one out of 30. He emerged as a prodigious talent for the first time by winning the 200m as a 15-year-old in the 2002 World Junior Championships at his hometown Kingston. He then won another 200m gold in the World Youth Championships in Canada. Bolts young career was, however, rocked by injuries for a few years, but he came back stronger in 2006. Bolt was initially thought to be more suited to run in 200m and 400m as he had difficulty in smoothly starting out of the blocks but, in 2007, his celebrated coach Glenn Mills, who has been with him since 2005, allowed him to run the 100m. In his native Jamaica, he is the most well-known athlete — and possibly the most famous public figure. Thousands turned out in his domestic farewell event in Kingston earlier this year. His exit from the competitive stage — though the IAAF wants him to be associated as global brand ambassador — will bring shudders to athletics bosses. Bolts clean image has been a contrast to his long-time rival Gatlin, who is considered the opposite of the Jamaican. And the IAAF has banked on the Jamaicans clean image to shield the dope-tainted sport. One of the richest sportspersons in the world, he reportedly earns more than USD 30 million a year, mostly through endorsements. The greatest entertainer that athletics — perhaps all sports — have known, Bolt, unlike Ali, has rarely given opinions on issues beyond sport. But the Jamaican wants to coin superlatives about himself like the boxing legend, and fans and media lapped up the idea. Just before this championships, he had demanded that the world write one last headline about him — “Unbeatable. Unstoppable”. Just after his 200m triumph at the 2012 London Olympics, he had declared, “I am a living legend. Bask in my glory!” The world will continue to bask in his glory!

EDMONTON — Alberta’s incoming premier says a law to repeal the province’s carbon tax and another that will cut business taxes will be the first steps his government takes once in power.Jason Kenney has set April 30 as the date for when he and his cabinet will be sworn in.He plans to recall the legislature in the third week of May, at which point the new laws will be tabled.Kenney says the first move of his new cabinet will be to bring into force a law already passed that allows for the restriction of fuel shipments from Alberta should provinces such as British Columbia stand in the way of pipelines.Kenney says he has already had a 15-minute phone conversation with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the two will meet face-to-face after the swearing in.A less confrontational tone from Jason Kenney today in regards to Francois Legault, John Horgan and Justin Trudeau, all of whom he spoke to via phone. #ableg #yeg #yyc #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/jo2rUEyJSS— Courtney Theriault (@cspotweet) April 17, 2019Kenney changed his tone from the campaign trail when talking about some of the energy opponents across Canada.Premier-elect @jkenney says he spoke with @jjhorgan this morning. Kenney says he made it clear that Alberta means business when it comes to energy projects. Says he wants to find common ground.

Doctors have now been told to use their own clinical judgement or alternative software until the bugs in the system used by at least one third of practices have been solved.Earlier this month leading doctors warned that the cholesterol-busting drugs, which cost just pennies, were being rationed in some parts of the party, in measures “born out of desperation”.The decision to restrict the heart drugs was last night attacked by health watchdogs, who said wider prescribing of the medication had been recommended to stop “lives being destroyed”.Two years ago, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence cut the “risk threshold” for cholesterol-beating statins in half, meaning than up to 40 per cent of adults are eligible to take the drugs. Doctors were told to contact up to 260,000 patients to identify those who suffered heart attacks and strokes, or were left in danger of them, after being wrongly classed as low-risk.GPs were also supposed to identify those who had been needlessly put on the drugs for years, despite the fact their likelihood of heart disease was low. ‘About half of practices affected by this issue have not accessed the lists NHS England has provided them of their affected patients’Dr Andrew Green, clinical lead for the BMA’s GP committee But senior health officials say around half of GP practices have not even looked at the lists of affected patients, in an attempt to review their care.In an email sent last month, doctors from the British Medical Association (BMA) said the failure to act, following the alert in May, was “difficult to defend”. Around half of the 2,500 GP practices which use the flawed software have yet to inform patients, health officials have warnedCredit:Dominic Lipinski/PA More than 100,000 patients who may have been misdiagnosed in a statins scandal have not been alerted to a potentially fatal glitch in systems used by the NHS.Earlier this year, the computer system used by GPs was found to have been miscalculating patients’ risk of heart attack since 2009.The blunders mean that those in grave danger of heart attacks and strokes may not have offered cholesterol-lowering drugs, while others with little risk of heart disease were needlessly put on the pills.In May, medicines regulators issued an alert to 2,500 GP practices warning them to review every patient who might be affected, and to stop using the faulty software until the glitch was resolved. Dr Andrew Green, clinical lead for the BMA’s GP committee, wrote to local medical committees after receiving a warning from NHS England’s director of general practice.In the email, he wrote: “I have spoken today with Dr. Arvind Madan from NHS England, who is concerned that about half of practices affected by this issue have not accessed the lists NHSE has provided them of their affected patients.”“I would agree with him that practices should be aware of who these patients are and that it would be difficult to defend a practice that had not done so,” he continued, in the email seen by GP magazine Pulse.The errors stem from a problem in the QRISK2 tool provided by UK IT company TPP.Current NHS advice is that anyone with a 10 per cent chance of cardiovascular disease within the next decade should be advised to take the cholesterol-busting medication.Such scores are calculated using software which takes account of factors such as blood pressure, weight, health problems and family medical history.GPs calculate patients’ risk of having a future heart attack or stroke when they attend the NHS health check offered to all patients aged 40 to 74 every five years. GPs decide who should be advised to take statins using software systems which assess riskCredit:Kuman Sriskandan/Alamy Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

The car was left in the road until the evening, and police cordoned off the street.Witness Paul Noble said he saw a man lying in the road in the aftermath of the incident, whilst the woman was seen crushed between the car and the cafe.He added: “What I saw has been at the forefront of my mind since yesterday. I didn’t recognise them. I can only imagine they were a young family enjoying a day out in Battle.”The mother and father were taken to Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton, where the father remains in a serious condition with head injuries.The female driver and the three children were treated for minor injuries and shock at Conquest Hospital in St Leonards-on-Sea.Floral tributes havebeen left at the scene, where the Lounge Coffee shop remains closed. Sergeant Peter Verney, of Sussex Police, said: “Our thoughts are very much with the family at what is a very difficult time, and we would ask people to respect their privacy while they try to come to terms with what has happened.”The car came to rest after crashing into the front of a cafe window, leaving customers trapped inside.The female driver of the black Volkswagen Beetle also suffered minor injuries and police say they are examining whether she was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the incident at 1.55pm in Battle, near Hastings, East Sussex.A witness described how people in the town came together to help in the aftermath of the smash. A Sussex Police spokesman said: “Police examining the circumstances of the crash are investigating reports that the car driver may have been under the influence of alcohol when it occurred.” “The guys on the site here helped out,” she said. “We didn’t see the crash but quite a few people called the emergency services and helped manage traffic until the police arrived.”There was a lot of people outside – the town was very busy. You just don’t expect anything like that to happen.

Mingora in Pakistan. Image: Google Maps- © AFP, 2012Read: Muslims accused of blasphemy after attack on Hindu temple in Pakistan > Read: Guantanamo’s youngest detainee transferred to Canada > THERE HAS BEEN condemnation of a “barbaric” and “cowardly” Taliban attack on a Pakistani teenage children’s rights activist, who was shot in the head on her school bus.Malala Yousafzai, 14, who led a campaign for the right to an education in the militants’ former stronghold of Swat, is fighting for her life after the attack in which two other girls were wounded.“We strongly condemn the shooting of Malala. Directing violence at children is barbaric, it’s cowardly, and our hearts go out to her and the others who were wounded, as well as their families,” US State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said today.She was flown to the northwestern city of Peshawar where a team of senior doctors said she was in a critical condition.Malala won international recognition for highlighting Taliban atrocities in Swat with a blog for the BBC three years ago, when Islamist militants burned girls’ schools and terrorized the valley.Tuesday’s shooting in broad daylight in Mingora, the main town of the Swat valley, raises serious questions about security more than three years after the army claimed to have crushed a Taliban insurgency.Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan told AFP the Islamist group carried out the attack after repeatedly warning Malala to stop speaking out against them.“She is a Western-minded girl. She always speaks against us. We will target anyone who speaks against the Taliban,” he said by telephone from an undisclosed location.Yousafzai received the first-ever national peace award from the Pakistani government last year, and was nominated for the International Children’s Peace Prize by advocacy group KidsRights Foundation in 2011.

COPY LINKAD Loading … BJP National General Secretary Ram MadhavIANSRam Madhav, the National General Secretary of the Bharatiya Janata Patry, has defended Prime Minister Modi’s comments on the presence of clouds during the Balakot airstrike and his advice to experts on how clouds can help the Indian Air Force jets escape Pakistan’s radars.In a Facebook post, Madhav called out everyone who became an expert on radars and said that he consulted with “a real expert, a senior most professor and top nano-technologist” in the country and gave his point of view on what the prime minister had said. It is interesting to note that Madhav did not name the expert but said that he can be trusted and is non-political.The expert had said, “In the last few days, there has been some discussion on PM’s comment on whether fighter aircraft can avoid detection by radars in the presence of clouds. People, even some military personnel, are ignorantly arguing that radars are immune to weather conditions. The right question to be asked is: do weather conditions degrade radar performance? The answer is YES.”The anonymous expert went on to explain, “Military surveillance radars typically operate in S band (2 – 4 GHz) frequency band to achieve the best of accuracy and range. As the frequency increases beyond this range, it is good for accuracy but the signal attenuation will increase affecting the performance of the radar. If the radar is used in S band range of frequencies or lower, the presence of water molecules in air (due to fog, rain, clouds) will affect the performance of the radar through a phenomenon known as molecular dispersion.”The expert said that the clouds and rain will affect the signal and will lead to a “poor signal to noise ratio”, hence creating a disadvantageous situation for the radar which will face difficulties in picking up the radio signals.During situations when the sky is cloudy and there is rain, the signal could be optimized and molecular dispersion can be reduced using circular polarisation of the signals, the expert explains. However, the radar functioning will still be not up to the mark and will underperform.The expert concluded the statement by saying that there was nothing wrong with what PM Modi had said.Debates were sparked across all platforms when PM Modi, in an interview with The News Nation, said that prior to the Balakot airstrike he suggested the clouds and rain in the region could be useful for the India Air Force flights to escape Pakistan’s radars.According to the transcript of the interview, “The weather was not good on the day of airstrikes. There was a thought that crept in the minds of the experts that day of the strike should be changed. However, I suggested that the clouds can actually help our planes escape the radars.”Many called him out for his comments and how he could overrule those with expert knowledge on the matter and he was criticised for his “raw wisdom”.
Sheikh Hasina and Narendra Modi. Photo: Focus BanglaPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday had a meeting with her Indian counterpart Narendra Modi and discussed matters of bilateral interests, including the Rohingya issue.“On the sidelines of the CHOGM, the two leaders held the meeting at Lancaster House and discussed bilateral issues,” foreign secretary Md Shahidul Haque told reporters after the meeting in London.Replying to a question, he said issues like Rohingya and Teesta came up for discussions.The Bangladesh and Indian prime ministers also discussed the issue of the Commonwealth.While talking about the Rohingya issue, Haque observed that India has changed its position on this issue.“India is helping us rehabilitee the Rohingyas,” he said.The foreign secretary also said the issue of inauguration of “Bangladesh House” at Biswa Bharati University in Indian state of West Bengal in the presence of the two premiers came up for discussion.Foreign minister AH Mahmood Ali, state minister for foreign affairs Md Shahriar Alam, PM’s principal secretary Md Nojibur Rahman, principal coordinator on the SDG affairs Md Abul Kalam Azad were present at the meeting.
Thai divers gather before they enter to the Tham Luang cave, where 12 boys and their soccer coach are trapped, in the northern province of Chiang Rai, Thailand on 6 July 2018. Photo: ReutersMore than 100 chimneys are being drilled into the mountainside in a frantic bid to reach a Thai youth football team trapped in a cave complex below, the head of the rescue mission said Saturday.The unprecedented rescue effort is attempting to establish new ways to extract the boys from above, if the underground chambers flood and it is deemed too risky to evacuate the team by diving out through the submerged passageways.”Some (of the chimneys) are as deep as 400 metres… but they still cannot find their location yet,” Narongsak Osottanakorn told reporters, adding the mission lacked the technology “to pinpoint where they are staying”.”We estimate that (they) are 600 metres down, but we don’t know the (exact) target,” he said.On the question of dipping oxygen levels in the cave, he said rescuers had managed to establish a line to pump in fresh air and had also withdrawn non-essential workers from chamber three — where the rescue base is — to preserve levels inside the cave.The “Wild Boar” team have been trapped inside the Tham Luang cave complex for two weeks.
By Sean Yoes, AFRO Baltimore Editor, email@example.comAugust 2017, Erricka Bridgeford, Letrice Gant, Ogun Gordy, Darnyle Wharton, Jakia Jason and Michelle Shellers, launched the first “Nobody Kill Anybody”Baltimore Ceasefire weekend.It was two short years after the Uprising of 2015, two dreadful years that saw the city easily eclipse the 300 murder mark, and we were in the midst of a third consecutive year of 300 homicides. By August 2017, the city and the Baltimore Police Department (BPD) had been slapped with an historic Consent Decree by the U.S. Department of Justice, in the aftermath of the homicide of Freddie Gray while in BPD custody. The garish quality of seemingly ubiquitous police corruption was headed towards an all-time high (The Gun Trace Task Force and the homicide of Det. Sean Suiter were still on the bleak horizon), and community confidence in the police was at an all-time low. The audacity of six Black people to come forward and command a cessation of murder in Baltimore, the most violent city in America seemed remarkable. Their request seemed implausible.Sean Yoes (Courtesy Photo)Yet, despite tremendous doubt, outright resistance and ridicule the Ceasefire crew pressed forward by faith. At the end of 72 hours, the Ceasefire movement mourned the deaths of Lamontrey Tynes and Donte Johnson on day two of the Ceasefire. However, there were no murders recorded for a total of 67 of the 72 (41 continous hours without a murder) hours at a time when the city was averaging a murder approximately every 19 hours.The eyes of the world were on Baltimore for that first Ceasefire and although we tragically lost the lives of two more young Black men, the majority of the city responded positively to the challenge.Thousands of Baltimoreans eschewed violence, murder and mayhem and celebrated life, at least for 72 glorious hours. The concept of Ceasefire had fired the imaginations of many. The three subsequent Ceasefire weekend after the first, the homicide numbers came down from two to one, to none, to none again.Now, two years after the first Ceasefire there is empirical evidence available as we head towards the August 2019 Ceasefire, which supports what many believe, the movement is working.In a study called, “Modeling the Effect of Baltimore Ceasefire,” published June 13, by Open Baltimore (a city agency), statistical data on shootings during the Ceasefire weekends indicate there have been 60 percent fewer shootings during the 72 hour period. “The effect of the Ceasefire is classically significant and suggest an approximate 60 percent reduction in shootings during ceasefire weekends,” according to the report.Further, the report indicates, “Without a ceasefire, we would expect about three or four people to get shot on the first day of the weekend, on average. But, this will be a Ceasefire weekend, so the model expects about two fewer shootings each day.” It is a stunning tangible result born out of an organic grassroots movement, an answer to mind-numbing violence (one of the group’s mantras is, “Don’t be numb.”)The statistical affirmation is welcomed by the leaders of Baltimore Ceasefire, although they knew in their spirits that their work was making a significant difference in the city.“Having this data confirms things we knew instinctively. With over 30 events every Ceasefire weekend, we knew Baltimoreans were shifting the atmosphere,” said Erricka Bridgeford, one of the Ceasefire co-founders, who has become the face of the movement globally.“When people told us they were going to keep their neighborhoods safe, we knew they were keeping their promises. But now, with proof that there are 60 percent fewer shootings during Ceasefire weekends, we can see that the more people know about a Ceasefire, the more peaceful Baltimore becomes,” she said.“This also proves that it is a good choice to believe in Baltimore.”Sean Yoes is the AFRO’s Baltimore editor and the author of Baltimore After Freddie Gray: Real Stories From One of America’s Great Imperiled Cities.

These new capabilities build upon Carestream’s fully featured vendor neutral archive (VNA) architecture.For years, patient data has existed in departmental systems such as radiology, endoscopy, pathology, cardiology lab results, and others. VNAs now link many of these systems together and provide clinical access from an electronic medical record or electronic health record (EMR/EHR). However there’s a piece that’s been missing: making unstructured data files accessible as meaningful clinical content by working with metadata.Carestream further enhances its Clinical Collaboration Platform with a Web-based portal that can streamline information lifecycle management, while a universal viewer equips physicians with a comprehensive view of patient data when making diagnostic decisions. The platform also supports an embeddable viewer that allows patients to manage their own clinical data.Carestream’s “take over” module preserves a healthcare provider’s existing infrastructure investment and minimizes the need for a costly migration. A real-time business dashboard module — also available with the Clinical Collaboration Platform — is offered to address healthcare information technology (IT) executives’ need for more intelligent data analytics to streamline operations and compliance.For more information: www.carestream.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Enterprise Imaging | April 15, 2019 Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Implements Change Healthcare Enterprise Imaging Change Healthcare successfully implemented its Radiology PACS (picture archiving and communication system), Image… read more News | Remote Viewing Systems | June 04, 2019 Client Outlook’s eUnity Smartviewer Selected by Duke University Health System Client Outlook Inc. announced that Duke University Health System has implemented eUnity for enterprise viewing… read more
