Veld Festival 2019 Cardi Bs clipped set Jaden Smiths buzz cut and

first_imgAdvertisement Facebook LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Login/Register With: Advertisementcenter_img Cardi B (Photo by Maggie Stephenson) Twitter Over two days, three stages and over 30 performances, there wasn’t a moment where all five senses weren’t stimulated at Veld. The incessant scent of weed wafted through the park while strobes, flames and fireworks continuously ripped through the air and a seemingly endless lineup of performers sang, rapped and spun to a crowd clad in full neon fits and pasties. For every bass drop and well-timed pyrotechnic, there were hundreds of exposed butt cheeks and even more body glitter.It was clear that organizers were aiming for something epic, despite having less competition in a sparse Toronto festival season. The electronic headliners – Tiësto, Skrillex and Kygo – are among the biggest draws in the genre right now, while rapper Cardi B was an eye-popping name at the top of the poster. According to Veld’s Instagram, with over 30,000 people, this year was the festival’s biggest to date.last_img read more

Wizards Howard out 23 months after spinal surgery

WASHINGTON — Wizards centre Dwight Howard is expected to miss two to three months after undergoing spinal surgery to relieve pain in his glutes.The team announced Howard underwent a lumbar microdiscotemy Friday in California and would be re-evaluated in two to three months. Doctors determined a herniated disk was causing Howard’s gluteal pain and nerve irritation.Howard had missed the last five games after aggravating the injury, which also caused him to sit out training camp and the first seven games of the season.Washington signed Howard to an $11 million, two-year contract with a player option in the off-season. The 32-year-old is averaging 12.8 points and 9.2 rebounds in nine games.The Wizards are Howard’s fourth team in the past four seasons and sixth overall in his NBA career.___More AP NBA: and Associated Press read more

Protect our salmon from poachers volunteers demand as they say river deserves

first_imgDespite the fact England’s salmon stocks are among the lowest on record, the River Ure in Yorkshire has enjoyed a boost in its salmon population over the last five years – even outperforming the rivers in Scotland. Volunteers are pushing for a Yorkshire river with a flourishing salmon population to be recognised as a “principle river” by the government so they can protect the fish from poachers. This is thanks to the efforts of the Ure Salmon Group, who tend the habitat, remove blockages to the river so fish can swim in and run a stocking scheme.center_img However, the Government has labelled the river a “recovering salmon river” rather than giving it principle salmon status – meaning it will not receive…last_img

Leo Varadkar isnt happy that Aer Lingus is taking legal action against

first_imgMINISTER LEO VARADKAR has branded legal action by Aer Lingus today as “unhelpful”.All parties should focus on “the core problems” to avoid the disruption of future strike action, the Minister for Transport said, “and so that members of the pension scheme can get clarity regarding their future entitlements”.He previously accused unions of “targeting St Patrick’s weekend”.The airline is taking the action against trade union Siptu for damages lost as a resulted of a threatened strike earlier this week.“The cloud of uncertainty created by the strike threat has damaged Aer Lingus’ business and disrupted thousands of our customers,” Aer Lingus said.The company noted that “significant damage has been inflicted” on booking profiles, and extra costs incurred in hiring additional aircraft.Siptu had intended to hold a four-hour strike today, but this was prevented after a high court injunction on Wednesday.Read: Aer Lingus is suing SIPTU >Previously: High Court halts airport strikes by granting injunction to DAA>last_img read more

Olympus new 16MP superzoom can shoot stills and 1080p video simultaneously

first_imgGenerally speaking, gadget makers try to avoid announcing new gadgets before an Apple event, but in the hush before the coming iPad 2 storm, Olympus decided to get out a press release for a handful of digital cameras, the most interesting of which is their new superzoom, the SZ-30MR.Boasting a 24X optical zoom running the gamut of 25-6000mm, the SZ-30Mr boasts a sixteen megapixel backlit CMOS sensor, which would make it capable of some fairly decent low-light photography if not for the fact that the aperture maxes out at just f3. ISO goes up to 3200, which is a pipe dream, although you might get acceptable performance up to 1600. The SZ-30MR also boasts HDMI out, a 3-inch LCD, and an easy-to-use 3D mode where you can pan the camera while taking a photo and the camera will automatically capture a 3D composite shot. Neat.Here’s where it gets really interesting, though. The new Olympus SZ-30MR boasts a new mode called Multi Recording, and it accomplishes a very neat trick indeed: it allows you to record full 1080P videos and 16MP stills at the same time. If that doesn’t impress you, you can even shoot two movies simultaneously, by shooting a wide-shot and a close-up at the same time. That’s some pretty unique functionality. Unfortunately, it’s mitigated slightly by the narrow aperture, as well as the lack of RAW capture. Otherwise, though, if you’re looking to spend about $400 for a high-end point-and-shoot, the Olympus SZ-30MR looks like a pretty good bet when it’s released in April.Read more at Olympuslast_img read more

Mojangs Scrolls releases today Where when and how to get it Updated

first_imgAfter Mojang took the world by storm with the mine-and-craft-em-up, Minecraft, the gaming world wondered whether or not the company could achieve even half of that success with a new game, or if the team wasn’t simply a one-hit wonder. Mojang’s second game developed in-house, Scrolls, is finally releasing, and hopes to capture the gamers’ hearts, minds, and paychecks just like Minecraft did a few years ago.Mojang’s digital CCG (collectible card game) was supposed to release earlier today, but as of yet has not been made available for purchase. Fear not, for all will be well soon enough.Scrolls is being launched as a beta, with a similar payment model Minecraft used during its beta. For $20, you’ll nab yourself the game, as well as any future updates for free, forever. To kneel before Mojang and hoist your open wallet in its direction, head on over to the Scrolls purchase page. As of this article’s writing, though, you’ll be greeted with a message that states the store has not yet opened. So, make sure to frantically check back every few seconds or so until the store opens so you can begin making a deck full of common and uncommon weenies that never seems to lose.If you’re familiar with the digital CCG scene — which appears to be most prevalent on mobile platforms — you’ll be relieved to know that Scrolls doesn’t appear to use an energy mechanic that limits your actions, and every card is available for in-game currency. Though if you don’t have the time for that, cards can also be purchased for real money. Cards are also tradable, so if you get unfortunate pulls, you might be able to swing that into something you could use.About an hour ago, users involved in the closed alpha of the game said the servers went down, so Mojang is most likely preparing the store and readying the servers for a storm of new beta users.Update – 11:39am: is still rather screwed up. Right now the site has two “Buy Scrolls” buttons, one of which links to the Game page and the other which rolls over to About, but links to Buy. So, no, you still can’t buy Scrolls.Update – 2:25pm: You can now successfully purchase Scrolls, but it might be a bit of a pain. I managed to buy it, but couldn’t load the store outright from First, I had to log into my Mojang account through, then once I was successfully logged in, I navigated over to the Buy Scrolls section of the Scrolls site, where the store finally loaded and I was able to purchase the game. If that’s too much of a hassle, it’s likely that the site is experiencing a mix of growing pains and an avalanche of traffic, so the issues should clear up later in the day.Now read: Notch challenges Bethesda to Quake 3 battle for use of Scrolls namelast_img read more

Esquire Takes Stock of Time

first_imgTime, December 10, 2007; Esquire, June 2008As it’s been noted on this blog before, magazine editors seem to have an endless fascination with putting Barack Obama on their covers. Which, in turn, leads to fascinating graphic portrayals—some, you might say, angelic—and, naturally, perhaps, some overlap. Like this.Both shots come from the same photo shoot. The original shoot (by renowned, one-named photographer Platon) was commissioned by Time; Esquire bought the cover shot from Platon. I asked Esquire design director David Curcurito for background. He referred me to a lengthy interview Michael Norseng, the magazine’s director of photography, gave to Rob Haggart, former photo director for Men’s Journal and Outside and blogger behind A Photo Editor:In response to the original question you refrenced, “we wonder how Esquire failed to get an exclusive portrait for their cover” my guess is that they didn’t bother to read Charles Pierce’s story on the inside of the issue “The Cynic and The Senator Obama.” Charles observed the Obama campaign from the outside, as the millions of us in the crowd are doing, and offered a critical appraisal of the Senator without a sit down interview. As you know, it’s rare, especially for a guy who had bigger fish to fry at the time of the issue, to participate in a shoot when there is no direct involvement with the piece.We were of course aware that the Platon shoot was originally commissioned by Time and how they ran the material. However, Platon has a long history of shooting key political figures for Esquire, starting with, one of the most iconic of all time, the Bill Clinton cover in December of 2000. Since then, he has done others, GOP candidate McCain in ’06 and Senator Edwards in 07. So, if a shoot would have somehow presented itself, its fair to say that he would have been at the top of our list. Thus, we were extremely happy that the B/W shot was available and that we got it for our cover.My guess is that they feel in love with the image, and probably figured that in this election cycle, six months is an eternity, and few readers would notice (given Curcurito’s trademark coverline treatments) and those that did wouldn’t care.last_img read more

Image courtesy of Kim et al.December 7, 2018 — Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans show repetitive blows to the head result in brain changes among youth football players, according to a new study. Study results were presented at the 2018 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 25-30 in Chicago.Football has been the subject of much scrutiny in recent years due to growing concerns over the long-term consequences of repetitive head impacts. Players who show signs of concussion are typically removed from games, but many hits to the head are subconcussive — or below the threshold of a concussion — and, therefore, do not cause any immediate symptoms. There is rising concern that youth football players who experience these collisions in practices and games may be vulnerable to their effects.”The years from age 9 to 12 are very important when it comes to brain development,” said study lead author Jeongchul Kim, Ph.D., from Wake Forest School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, N.C. “The functional regions of the brain are starting to integrate with one another, and players exposed to repetitive brain injuries, even if the amount of impact is small, could be at risk.”Kim and colleagues studied the results of these collisions on youth football players using a novel MRI method that looks at the strain evident on white matter tracts — the bundles of nerve fibers that carry information between different areas of the brain.”The focus here was on deformations of these fiber bundles,” Kim said. “Changes from collisions might cause elongation or contraction of these bundles.”Twenty-six male youth football players, average age 12, underwent MRI studies before and approximately three months after the season was over. For comparison, 22 similarly aged boys who did not participate in contact sports had MRIs on the same schedule.The MRI results showed the football players developed changes in the corpus callosum, a critically important band of nerve fibers that connects the two halves of the brain. The primary role of the corpus callosum is to integrate cognitive, motor and sensory functions between the two sides of the brain.There were signs of greater axial strain (contraction) in some parts of the corpus callosum, and indications of radial strain (expansion) in other parts.”The body of the corpus callosum is a unique structure that’s somewhat like a bridge connecting the left and right hemispheres of brain,” Kim said. “When it’s subjected to external forces, some areas will contract and others will expand, just like when a bridge is twisting in the wind.”The results suggest repetitive subconcussive head impacts associated with participation in youth contact sports could lead to changes in the shape of the corpus callosum during this critical time of brain development. Kim cautioned, however, that more evidence is needed to confirm the findings. His group intends to continue studying the players, when possible, to see if any additional deformation occurs.The ultimate goal of the research, Kim said, is to provide guidelines for safe football play. MRI may have a role in that process by helping to determine if and when an athlete is able to return to play after a head injury. Positron emission tomography (PET), an imaging technique that can detect signs of inflammation in the brain, is also potentially useful in this regard, according to Kim.”It’s best to detect changes at the earliest possible time,” he said.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more News | Stroke | August 16, 2019 Mobile Stroke Unit Gets Patients Quicker Treatment Than Traditional Ambulance Every second counts for stroke patients, as studies show they can lose up to 27 million brain cells per minute…. read more last_img read more

TravelManagers Charity Golf Day raises 10000 for Love Your Sister

first_imgTravelManagers’ Charity Golf Day raises $10,000 for Love Your Sister The TravelManagers charity golf champions! First place winners (left to right) Wolfgang Wicher, PTM Mark Devers, Samuel Johnson (Love Your Sister), George Lowrie, Ben TaplinTravelManagers’ Charity Golf Day raises $10,000 for Love Your SisterNow in its third year, the TravelManagers’ charity golf day was without doubt, it’s most successful yet. The spectacular Mornington Golf Club on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula was again centre stage, showcasing another fantastic event this year with just over $10,000 being raised in support of Samuel and Connie Johnson‘s charity Love Your Sister.The Globus team getting into the spirit of the day at their sponsored holeLove Your Sister is a not for profit organisation founded by the Johnson siblings in support of breast cancer research. Connie is 35 years old and has terminal cancer. Driven by Samuel for the love of his sister, he has a goal to raise ten million dollars to support the funding of the Connie Johnson Breast Cancer laboratory at the Garvan Research Foundation and general cancer research.TravelManagers’ Kellie Browning, Business Partnership Manager for Victoria has organised the charity event from its inception and was completely overwhelmed by the amount of funds raised at this year’s event.“The funds raised from the day well and truly exceeded all expectations – our last years’ donation was $4,350 to Cancer Council which we thought was fantastic. To raise over $10,000 this year is simply incredible.”Personal travel managers, their clients, preferred suppliers and the national partnership office team all participated in the golf day.“We are so lucky to have such a supportive TravelManagers family and strong relationships with partner suppliers who were happy to support and raise money for a great cause. Unfortunately cancer touches so many lives, everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer. It was such an amazing day, full of emotion as this event provided a way for everybody to feel that they were able to give something back and also have fun networking with clients, suppliers, colleagues and family and friends.”Personal travel managers Carolyn Pitt, Andrea Friend, Naomi Liss and Luky Wilson manning the ‘betting hole’The tournament consisted of teams of four playing Ambrose style golf over 18 holes. The golf day was very relaxed and enjoyed by 76 participants – 19 teams of four.With players mainly from Victoria, there was a national partnership office team and personal travel managers’ golfing enthusiasts Ken Simpson, representative from Caloundra in Queensland and Neil Saunders, representative from Glengowrie in South Australia again took part.“The TravelManagers golf day is such a highlight and something I genuinely look forward to each year. Playing a good game of golf is appealing but it’s the opportunity to chat to our local industry suppliers and spend quality time with clients in a relaxed and informal setting that I find most enjoyable. Raising significant funds to an extremely worthwhile charity is just the icing on the cake,” says Saunders.TravelManagers with the help of Allianz Global Assistance provided egg and bacon breakfast rolls, which were a huge hit especially for the early 9am shotgun starters.Members from the national partnership office, Victorian based personal travel managers as well as Melanie Whyte from Tasmania spent the day supporting the sponsored holes, driving golf carts selling refreshments and raffle tickets. In addition there was a betting hole on the 10th hole with four to one odds, a swear jar at every drinks station and Chirping Bird Winery again provided wine tasting. All funds raised went directly to the charity.“For something new this year we included breakfast and lunch into the ticket price and catered refreshment stations on four supplier sponsored holes where players could buy water, soft drink, beer and champagne. This created a great opportunity for suppliers to network with PTMs and their clients and I think the refreshments really helped to improve some players’ game!” says Browning.Samuel Johnson congratulates second place winners Stewart Edgar, Michael Gazal (NPO), Roger Aldons (Ben Vercoe had to leave before presentation)A real highlight for many was meeting Samuel Johnson.“Samuel attended part of the golf day where he spent time mingling with guests and captivated everyone talking about his love for his sister and their charity goals of raising ten million dollars.”Johnson was involved in the prize draws and ironically drew out the name of an extremely deserving winner of the major prize raffle, a trip for two to London courtesy of Royal Brunei.“Chris Pasin was planning to play in one of the golf teams but unfortunately he had to withdraw as the week before he himself was diagnosed with cancer. Chris, on medication and attached to an IV drip managed to come for a short time, where he had the chance to chat to Samuel.

Its funny because I was at a track meet five yea

first_img“It’s funny because I was at a track meet five years ago, four years ago, in Alabama — the state championships and my granddaughter was running,” the coach said. “This kid from Midfield won the 100, 200, 4×100 — little skinny dude. My son and I go, ‘Who in the hell is that?’“It just happened to be J.J. Nelson.”#MeepMeep!There goes J.J. Nelson, the second of two 5th round picks in #CardsDraft.— Arizona Cardinals (@AZCardinals) May 2, 2015 Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo TEMPE, Ariz. — It is said that speed can kill. If that’s the case, then J.J. Nelson, a fifth-round pick and the 159th overall selection in the 2015 NFL Draft, may be the Grim Reaper.“The fastest guy in the combine who can absolutely fly and has tremendous return skills,” Cardinals GM Steve Keim pointed out of Nelson, formerly of UAB who was timed at 4.28 seconds in the 40-yard dash.While Keim was saying that, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians began to smile. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Comments   Share   Nothing is guaranteed, but what we do know is that the Cardinals added some serious speed to their receiving corps, and that’s never a bad thing.“I already texted Carson (Palmer),” Arians said. “That quick five-step drop that you took for Smokey, you better get faster.“He said, ‘I love it.’” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact “He’s got a little more length than John, and Smoke’s (Brown) might be a little faster in and out, but what a great pair of fast guys,” Arians said. Each are the type of receivers Arians likes to have in his offense, so it’s no surprise he’s excited about the possibilities he sees before him. Nelson sees himself as more than just a kick returner, believing he’ll be able to make an impact as a receiver during his time in the NFL.Blessed and Highly Favored Thanks To The @AZCardinals For Believing In Me I Can’t Wait To Get To Work! #BirdGang #Honest— Jamarcus J.J. Nelson (@_ThaJizzleMan) May 2, 2015 It’s difficult not to compare Nelson to John Brown, whom the Cardinals selected in the third round of last year’s draft. Both are on the smaller side for receivers, but each has blazing speed. Arians said Nelson reminds him of Emmanuel Sanders, who he coached in Pittsburgh and is currently with the Denver Broncos, but added Sanders does not have the kind of speed his rookie does. At 5-foot-10 and 156 pounds, Nelson will likely need to bulk up some in order to survive the rigors of the NFL, but Arians thinks they’ll be able to get him up to 175 pounds without too much trouble.From there, the only problem should be for any defense trying to stop Arizona’s aerial attack, especially with speedsters Brown and Nelson on the field.

New delays for NHS

first_imgBy Angelos AnastasiouImplementation of the National Health Scheme (NHS) may be delayed as the software infrastructure – a necessary prerequisite for implementation – will most likely not be ready on time, sources cited by the Cyprus News Agency said on Thursday.In a meeting on Wednesday, Health Minister Philippos Patsalis briefed Troika delegates on progress made on the NHS issue, the phased implementation of which is scheduled to take 12 months starting July 2015.However, a host of obstacles threaten to throw the schedule off track, mostly relating to delays in the introduction of software necessary for the implementation of the long-awaited project.According to the CNA, the Health Insurance Organisation (HIO) recently informed Patsalis that the software hasn’t been prepared yet, and won’t be ready for the first or second phase of implementation – starting July 1, 2015 and January 1, 2016, respectively – thus pushing it back.The same sources claimed that the delay is most likely due to political, as opposed to technical, reasons.It is reminded that recent amendments to the original NHS plan sidelined the HIO – originally the scheme’s administrators – and transferred ownership of implementation and administration to the health ministry.Negotiations with the Troika have also brought another significant change to the original plan – the potential of turning the single-payer scheme into a multi-payer one in future. According to initial planning, the HIO is the sole insurer handling the NHS budget, but subsequent amendments have left open the window for a multi-insurer system, which would engage private insurance companies.In any case, implementation of the NHS cannot move forward without the software in question.Nonetheless, and the HIO’s territorial disputes with the health ministry notwithstanding, the Troika delegates left Wednesday’s meeting pleased with the ministry’s best efforts to facilitate implementation of the NHS as soon as possible.Meanwhile, two studies are currently being prepared in connection with the NHS.The first relates to rendering public healthcare facilities financially independent and will be ready within 20 days. Financial autonomy of every public hospital is also a thorny issue and a prerequisite for NHS implementation, with some stakeholders claiming it a fantasy based on flawed assumptions.The second relates to the possibility of a multi-payer system and is expected within one month.The two studies are expected to significantly impact NHS planning and are being prepared by experts from the World Health Organisation and the European Commission.On the issue of restructuring public hospitals and making them financially viable, the Troika delegation has recorded immense progress, as the matter has reached the stage of consultation, debate and voting by parliament.A small delay due to the civil servants’ union PASYDY requesting the Attorney-general’s legal advice on the matter of transferring civil servants to a state-owned company under private law – as hospitals will operate under the new regime – is expected to have negligible impact on scheduling.The bill on hospital autonomy is expected to be voted by parliament in time for implementation in the third quarter of 2015.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
