Two more patients die as junior doctors continue stir for 5th day

first_imgKolkata: An unyielding mentality of junior doctors to resume health services at various government-run medical colleges and hospitals continues to claim the lives of patients in the state complicating the situation further.The cease-work by the junior doctors at various hospitals, including the NRS Medical College and Hospital, entered the fifth day on Saturday with no logical conclusion of the impasse in sight despite all assurances by the state government on security revamp in all the hospitals. The rising death toll in the hospitals due to the unavailability of treatment is certainly not a good endorsement for the doctors whose job is to save lives. Also Read – City bids adieu to Goddess DurgaTwo patients, including a three-day-old infant, died in two separate incidents in the state on Saturday taking the toll to five so far. The family members of the deceased alleged that the patients died due to want of treatment caused by the prolonged strike of the junior doctors. The first incident occurred at Midnapore Medical College and Hospital on Saturday morning when a newborn baby boy died. It was learnt that one Monowara Begum, a resident of Midnpaore town, was taken to the hospital last Thursday after she had labour pain. On the same day, the woman gave birth to a boy child. The family members of the victim alleged that the health condition of the baby deteriorated fast and he was put under ventilation. The infant died at the hospital on Saturday morning. The family members alleged that the baby died as there was no treatment available due to the cease-work by the junior doctors. The mother along with other family members sat in a demonstration with the dead child outside the Emergency ward just opposite the place where the junior doctors have been conducting a sit-in.

She also held the striking doctors responsible for the baby’s death. Another family member of the deceased infant alleged: “The baby had been denied adequate treatment for the past three days. The doctors are on strike. Are they not ashamed to call themselves doctors.” The demonstration was later lifted by the family members following police intervention. In a similar incident, the family members of a 42-year-old woman who died at NRS Medical College and Hospital alleged that the strike has led to the death of the patient. The victim, Sulata Biswas, was admitted to the hospital a week ago. A resident of Basirhat in North 24-Parganas, Biswas had been suffering from cancer in her food pipe. She needed an emergency operation. The family members alleged that the operation could not be performed due to the ongoing strike of the junior doctors. “When we urged the doctors to treat the patient, some of the agitating junior doctors accused us of beating them up. We clarified that we were not involved in any incident of assault on doctors. We came here only for treatment. We were again told that the patient would not be treated as the junior doctors had been assaulted,” a relative of the victim said. Many other patients were also inconvenienced at NRS. One Shipra Biswas brought her three-year-old son to the hospital for removing plaster on his hand. The victim had suffered a fracture after falling from a tree. There was no doctor at the hospital to attend to him. It may be mentioned that three patients earlier died in different hospitals due to the cease-work of junior doctors.last_img read more

Eating plantbased foods to better heart health

first_imgEating mostly plant-based and fewer animal-based foods may be linked to better heart health and a lower risk of dying from cardiovascular diseases, a study claims. “While you don’t have to give up foods derived from animals completely, our study does suggest that eating a larger proportion of plant-based foods and a smaller proportion of animal-based foods may help reduce your risk of having a heart attack, stroke or other type of cardiovascular disease,” said Casey M Rebholz, an assistant professor at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in the US. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainThe study, published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, reviewed a database of food intake information from over 10,000 middle-aged US adults who were monitored from 1987 through 2016 and did not have cardiovascular disease at the start of the study. The researchers then categorised the participants’ eating patterns by the proportion of plant-based foods they ate versus animal-based foods. People who ate the most plant-based foods overall had a 16 per cent lower risk of having a cardiovascular disease such as heart attacks, stroke, heart failure and other conditions, 32 per cent lower risk of dying from a cardiovascular disease and 25 per cent lower risk of dying from any cause compared to those who ate the least amount of plant-based foods. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma Award”Our findings underscore the importance of focusing on your diet. There might be some variability in terms of individual foods, but to reduce cardiovascular disease risk people should eat more vegetables, nuts, whole grains, fruits, legumes and fewer animal-based foods. “These findings are pretty consistent with previous findings about other dietary patterns, including the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, or DASH diet, which emphasise the same food items,” Rebholz said. This is one of the first studies to examine the proportion of plant-based versus animal-based dietary patterns in the general population, noted Rebholz. Prior studies have shown heart-health benefits from plant-based diets but only in specific populations of people, such as vegetarians or Seventh Day Adventists who eat a mostly vegan diet. The study was observational, which means did not prove cause and effect.last_img read more

The Friday news briefing An ataglance survey of some top stories

first_imgHighlights from the news file for Friday, Dec. 29———CANADA 150 NEW YEAR’S SHOW CHANGED DUE TO COLD: Mother Nature drowned out Canada Day on Parliament Hill and now it’s frozen out part of the planned New Year’s Eve celebrations. Organizers were checking the forecast every hour Friday hoping to see some improvement but the polar vortex that has turned Ottawa into a living icicle shows no sign of lifting until at least Jan. 2. Heritage Minister Melanie Joly said while Canadians were able to manage all the snow that fell around last New Year’s Eve to ring in Canada 150, this year the cold was proving to be too much.———OTTAWA TO WORK WITH N.S. ON DESMOND INQUIRY: The federal government says it will work with Nova Scotia on the inquiry into the deaths of Lionel Desmond and his family. Last January, the retired corporal — diagnosed with PTSD and post-concussion disorder after completing two tours in Afghanistan in 2007 — shot his wife, daughter and mother before turning the gun on himself. Veterans Affairs Minister Seamus O’Regan said Friday the federal government will work with the province on the inquiry to prevent a similar tragedy from happening again.———BRAIN INJURY VICTIM COMMUNICATES WITH MOM: In what her mother calls a “Christmas miracle,” a Nova Scotia woman who suffered a catastrophic brain injury in a 1996 car accident communicated with family members for the first time in 21 years on Dec. 25. Louise Misner says her 37-year-old daughter Joellen Huntley used eye motion cameras and software on an iPad to respond to a question Misner asked her on Christmas Day. She says her daughter indicated through a screen icon that she was wearing a long-sleeved shirt.———ORDER OF CANADA LIST INCLUDES PHARMA GIANT: The Canadian pharmaceutical giant whose sudden death earlier this month is shrouded in mystery is among the latest inductees into the Order of Canada. Gov. Gen. Julie Payette released the latest round of appointments Friday, including 121 people new to the order and three who are being promoted within it. The list includes Bernard “Barry” Sherman, whose generic drug company Apotex made him and his wife, Honey, among the wealthiest people in Canada. The Shermans were found dead in their Toronto home on Dec. 15, and their deaths have been deemed “suspicious.”———MONTREAL CANADA’S MOST TRILINGUAL CITY: Census numbers from 2016 reveal Montreal is by far the country’s most trilingual city. The data were specially ordered by Montreal International, a business association, and provided today to The Canadian Press. The Statistics Canada figures indicate more than 21 per cent of Montrealers can speak at least three languages, compared with 11 per cent of Torontonians and 10 per cent of people in Vancouver. Jack Jedwab of the Association for Canadian Studies helped obtain the data and says Montreal has many trilingual people due to immigrants and Quebec’s language law.———HEALTH CANADA MONITORING MAKEUP ASBESTOS TEST: Health Canada says it has requested to see testing data from Claire’s Stores Inc. following reports that asbestos has been found in certain cosmetic products sold by the international retailer of youth-oriented jewelry and accessories. Claire’s said it has retained an independent laboratory to test the cited products in order to determine whether the recent news reports are accurate. Canada’s federal health agency said Friday that it contacted Claire’s, which confirmed that the suspect cosmetics were sold in Canada but have been removed from stores since Dec. 22.———U.S. INDIGENOUS MAN HAS RIGHT TO HUNT IN CANADA: An American Indigenous man’s right to hunt in Canada has been upheld by a judge because his ancestors traditionally hunted in this country. Richard Desautel was charged with violations under British Columbia’s Wildlife Act after he shot and killed a cow elk near Castlegar in 2010. Desautel, a member of the Lakes Tribe in Washington state, argued he was exercising his constitutional right to hunt for ceremonial purposes and was acquitted of the charges in March. Justice Robert Sewell has dismissed an appeal, saying Desautel’s tribe traditionally lived on both sides of the border and it has deep connections to its territory in Canada.———TRADING OF CANADIAN POT COMPANIES HALTED ON TSX: Several Canadian cannabis companies had their stocks temporarily halted on the Toronto Stock Exchange early Friday afternoon due to volatile swings in trading. The Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada halted trading on Canopy Growth Corp., Aphria Inc., Aurora Cannabis Inc. and MedReleaf Corp. between approximately 12:15 p.m. and 12:30 p.m. ET. Trading resumed for all shares within about 10 minutes. Shortly before the halts, shares of Canopy Growth dropped 14.78 per cent, Aphria 15.5 per cent, Aurora 14.7 per cent and MedReleaf dropped 19.2 per cent.———DIVERS FIND BODY OF B.C. BOY IN SUNKEN CAR: The RCMP is investigating a car crash in southeastern B.C. that resulted in the death of a 10-year-old boy. Police say the vehicle the boy was in veered off Highway 23 in snowy and icy conditions, and crashed into Arrow Lake and sank. The 37-year-old driver and an 11-year-old girl made it out of the car before it sank. The name of the deceased boy is not being released, and the Mounties and coroner continue to investigate the cause of the crash.———FORCILLO CASE BACK IN COURT IN JANUARY: The case of a Toronto police officer found guilty of attempted murder in the fatal shooting of a teen on a streetcar and now charged with attempting to obstruct justice and perjury will return to court next month. Const. James Forcillo appeared in court Friday and is set to appear by video link on Jan. 12 to schedule a bail hearing on the charges, which were laid last week. Even if he is granted bail on those charges, however, Forcillo would remain in custody to serve his sentence in the shooting of 18-year-old Sammy Yatim.———last_img read more

Teacher shortages threaten primary education goal in Africa Arab States – UN

The UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) report -Teachers and Education Quality: Monitoring Global Needs for 2015 – also highlights shortages of specialized teachers in developed countries such as Ireland, Spain and the United States, partly resulting from changing demographic and labour conditions.Prepared by UNESCO’s Institute for Statistics in Montreal, it presents new projections on the demand for teachers while assessing the quality of teaching around the world.The report, to be formally launched during Education for All (EFA) Week from 24 to 30 April, also examines the working conditions and status of teachers by analyzing diverse factors such as entry standards, salary scales, teaching hours and deployment policies.The research highlights serious problems with teacher training and quality in many parts of the world, and finds that those countries needing the most teachers generally have the least qualified personnel in classrooms.The theme of this year’s EFA Week is “Every Child Needs a Teacher.” read more

Les licences 4G 800 MHz officiellement accordées par lArcep

first_imgLes licences 4G 800 MHz officiellement accordées par l’ArcepLe gendarme des télécommunications a officiellement délivré les licences 4G sur la fréquence des 800 MHz, soit le très haut débit mobile.L’annonce faite au mois de décembre par l’Arcep, le gendarme des télécommunications, a donc été officiellement confirmée par l’Autorité. Elle avait accordé aux trois opérateurs mobiles “historiques”, Orange, SFR et Bouygues Telecom, le droit d’utiliser les fréquences situées dans la bande des 800 MHz et donc “d’établir et exploiter un réseau radioélectrique mobile ouvert au public” en France métropolitaine, relaye Clubic. En contrepartie, les opérateurs doivent “engager le déploiement de ces réseaux de nouvelle génération qui permettront, au cours des prochaines années, d’améliorer la performance et la qualité des services mobiles offerts aux utilisateurs sur l’ensemble du territoire”. En revanche, Free Mobile n’avait pas été retenu lors de l’appel d’offre pour cette 4G “en or”, l’Arcep lui réservant quand même le “droit à l’itinérance dans la bande 800 MHz en zone de déploiement prioritaire dès lors que son réseau à 2,6 GHz aura atteint une couverture de 25 % de la population”. Free devra donc négocier au cas par cas avec les trois autres sociétés mais il n’est pas sûr que les polémiques de ces derniers jours, issues du lancement en grandes pompes de l’offre illimitée du groupe de Xavier Niel et de l’utilisation du réseau Orange par ces nouveaux abonnés, aideront en ce sens.

Commissioner Gordon a Cornerstone of Batmans Life

first_imgStay on target James “Jim” Gordon, the Commissioner of the Gotham City Police Department, has been a friend and ally to the Bat-Family since the beginning. The first appearance of Batman, Detective Comics #27, was also the debut of the mustachioed cop. Always shown as working with Batman, be it against his better judgment or not, Gordon has been quintessential, and arguably underappreciated, as a part of the Batman-mythos. Here, we take a look at the character and how he has fit into the last 78 years of Batman comics.First appearing in the very first Batman issue, Gordon has always been a member of the Gotham City Police Department. His relationship with both Bruce Wayne and Batman are extremely complicated, a mix of admiration and uneasiness. Their first appearance featured the two realizing that they would not be able to face the dangers of Gotham City alone, forcing them to work together. He would act as commissioner of the GCPD for most of his history, despite the pain that it brought him and his family. In 1987’s The Killing Joke, his daughter, Barbara Gordon (aka Batgirl) was targeted by The Joker and paralyzed in a horrific assault, before the Joker tortured Gordon. Later in the late 1990’s, during the No Man’s Land earthquake that turned Gotham into even more of a wasteland, Gordon’s second wife was murdered by the Joker.More recently, in the modern classic Black Mirror storyline, by writer Scott Snyder, artists Jock and Francesco Francavilla, Gordon was revealed to have had a son, a James Gordon Jr. At a young age, James Jr. was deeply disturbed and mentally ill, torturing animals and being linked to the disappearance of a few other children. Returning to Gotham years later, having traveled the world and claiming to be taking medication to turn his life around, James Jr. only caused more pain for the Gordon family. Revealed to have been plotting to poison the city with a drug that increases psychopathic tendencies, James Gordon Sr. was forced to apprehend his son.Recently, during DC Comics’ New 52, at the tail end of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s critically acclaimed run on Batman, Gordon took over the role of Batman while Bruce Wayne was missing. Donning a 9-foot tall mech suit, designed by the Powers Corporation (from Batman Beyond), and sponsored by the GCPD, Gordon operated as a very different kind of Batman. The book took a turn into the more eccentric side of the DC Universe, and Gordon’s adventures felt like a totally different book, in a good way. It was a nice breath of fresh air for the series before Bruce’s inevitable return to the cape and cowl.No matter his role, be it as a member of the GCPD, as Batman, as a friend, a father, a mentor, or as a member of the Bat-Family, Gordon’s place in the DC Universe is an important one. A consistent player in Gotham, Gordon has been around a long time and is not going anywhere anytime soon.

White House wanted to send migrants to Democrat cities

first_imgTomas Kennedy from the Florida Immigrant Coalition speaks during a press conference, across the street from a US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office, to announce a travel alert for the state of Florida on 10 April 2019 in Miramar, Florida. Photo: AFPThe White House pushed immigration authorities to release illegal migrants onto the streets of so-called “sanctuary cities” to retaliate against US president Donald Trump’s political enemies, the Washington Post reported Thursday.Citing homeland security officials and leaked emails, the Post said White House officials first broached the plan in November, asking officials at several agencies whether members of a caravan of migrants could be arrested at the border and then bused “to small- and mid-sized sanctuary cities”.Sanctuary cities are places where local authorities — usually Democratic run — have refused to hand over illegal immigrants for deportation.The White House told the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) that the plan was intended to alleviate a shortage of detention space, but would also send a message to Democrats, the Post said.The suggested policy was pushed back within ICE, with a top official saying it was rife with concerns and noting “there are PR risks as well”.After the White House pressed the issue again earlier this year, ICE rebuffed it as “inappropriate”.The Post said a White House official and a spokesman for the department of homeland security said the proposal was no longer under consideration.”This was just a suggestion that was floated and rejected, which ended any further discussion,” a White House statement said.One of the centres targeted was the constituency of house speaker Nancy Pelosi, whose office on Thursday blasted the plan.”The extent of this administration’s cynicism and cruelty cannot be overstated,” said Pelosi spokeswoman Ashley Etienne.”Using human beings — including little children — as pawns in their warped game to perpetuate fear and demonise immigrants is despicable.”Combating illegal immigration is a central plank of Trump’s administration and he has expressed increasing frustration at the influx of migrants from Central America, who he often casts as criminals who threaten US security.The number of immigrant detainees in ICE custody has approached 50,000 in recent months, the Post said, an all-time high that has strained the agency’s budget.last_img read more

The superhero film genre has been with us for almost 40 years now — dating from that momentous December 1978 day when Superman: The Movie busted its very first blocks — and superhero movies have racked up lots of nominations, and a few wins, over that time.… For visual effects.For sound editing and/or mixing (LOTS of those).For hair and makeup.Which is to say: the technical categories.(See the bottom of this post for a rundown of the superhero films that have received Oscar nods over the years.)I don’t mean to minimize those achievements. After all, it’s only because of developments in the tech fields — in visual effects especially — and all the dedicated work of those tech Oscar winners that the superhero film genre can exist at all. They’re integral to the suspension of disbelief that fuels these movies: For any superhero story to work on screen, we gotta believe a man (and a woman, and the odd space-raccoon) can fly.What was unusual — unique, as it turns out — was that when the Academy Award nominations were announced Tuesday, a superhero film got a nod outside of the tech categories, for the first time* in 39 years.*(A grim caveat, here: Heath Ledger was posthumously nominated for, and won, the Academy Award for best supporting actor for The Dark Knight.)(A less-grim caveat: I’m talking superhero movies specifically, not comics-based films; Ghost World and A History Of Violence, based on graphic novels, earned adapted screenplay nominations.)(One more: The Incredibles, arguably the best superhero film of all time, won best animated feature in 2005. But let’s stick to live-action superhero films, you and me.)It was equally surprising that the nomination in question didn’t go to Wonder Woman. (A lot of us were betting that Patty Jenkins’ critically praised and widely loved tale of the Amazing Amazon would rack up technical award nominations and had hoped against hope for recognition of Jenkins’ directorial work or Matthew Jensen’s cinematography or Allan Heinberg’s screenplay. None of that happened.)No, it was Logan, for adapted screenplay — which was written by Scott Frank, Michael Green and director James Mangold, from a story by Mangold. The reason it’s competing in the adapted screenplay slot is because the film is loosely based on the comics story arc Old Man Logan, by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven; the character of Wolverine was created by Len Wein, Roy Thomas, John Romita Sr. and Herb Trimpe; and the film’s story features characters created by (deep breath): John Byrne, Chris Claremont, Dave Cockrum, Jack Kirby, Craig Kyle, Stan Lee, Marc Silvestri and Christopher Yost.It feels significant that a film in a genre that currently dominates the box office — a genre that attracts vocal detractors both because of and in spite of its omnipresence — should get recognized for the strength of its story.But does it signal anything? Is it a fundamental change in how superhero films are regarded aesthetically or artistically? Or is it just a one-off, specific to this particular screenplay, at this particular time?Is it a game-changer or a glitch?The case for game-changer Superhero movies are a genre, and while it might seem that Hollywood, as represented by the academy, has been reluctant to embrace hugely popular genre work. That is simply not borne out by a look at the awards’ long history.The very first film to win best picture was Wings in 1929 — a war film. That was followed by Broadway Melody (a musical), All Quiet on the Western Front (another war film), and Cimarron (a Western). In fact, the academy has handed out plenty of best picture statues to musicals, Westerns, romances, crime stories and thrillers.So it’s not genre, per se, that the academy disdains.It’s new genres.Those genres that have had the hardest time breaking out of the tech-category gulag are also, not coincidentally, the newest: science fiction, fantasy … and superhero.Science fiction and fantasy have been making up ground over the past decade or so, with The Martian, Gravity, Inception, Avatar, Arrival, Her, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Shape of Water and others earning best picture nominations, if not wins. In 2004, that highest of high fantasies, Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, managed to nab the best picture award.Superheroes have had an even tougher time of it, but the academy has proven itself nominally open to change on that front. Apart from Ledger’s Joker, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight did not receive any nominations in the major categories, causing a critical and public outcry in 2009. The following year, the academy doubled the number of possible best picture nominations from five to 10. The extension became known as “The Dark Knight Rule.”Perhaps Logan‘s screenplay nomination, paired with Ledger’s win nearly 10 years ago, do represent the leading edge of the academy’s embrace of the superhero genre.… But probably not. A much stronger case can be made that Logan‘s award success will not be repeated any time soon.The case for glitchGranted, superhero films vary more widely in setting, tone, aesthetics and scope than many who are content to sneer at the genre believe, but it’s fair to say that Logan is an atypical example of the form. Gritty superhero films are thick on the ground, but Mangold’s movie is also intimate, desolate and morally exhausted. It looks and feels different — deliberately so — from the colorful, snarky, world-saving whiz-bangery of mainstream Marvel fare. It plays in pointed contrast to them, in fact, and its future setting seems a wry comment on the ultimate fate of those quippy heroes who go around blithely Avenging things.It also offers something to viewers that only Nolan’s Batman films ever have (spoilers ahead): a superhero story with a definitive ending.In my book The Caped Crusade: Batman and the Rise of Nerd Culture, I devote a fair amount of ink to the proposition that while hardcore superhero nerds can and do delight in the open-ended, Ragnarok-esque cycle of endless adventure that their favorite heroes perpetually experience, others — casual moviegoers, say — find that notion deeply unsatisfying.Nerds want adventures. But Normals want stories.And stories have a beginning, a middle and an unambiguous end. That familiar structure provides closure: Elements introduced in the tale’s beginning figure largely in the climax. Action that has risen, dependably falls.To moviegoers who followed Jackman’s Wolverine over the past 17 years with a distant but palpable measure of interest, the utter finality of Logan‘s conclusion likely landed harder and deeper than any superhero film they’ve experienced. It felt raw and real and — here is the important bit — different.The other factor that makes it unlikely that Logan‘s nomination augurs anything other than the fact that a bunch of people liked Logan a whole lot is the fact that while studio executives love superhero movies — more specifically, the money they bring in — many among Hollywood’s creative types continue to harbor a seething resentment of the genre.Read an interview with a director, screenwriter or actor, and count how many paragraphs it takes for them to start decrying the crass commercialism of the superhero film, or its CGI violence, or its flat characters, all the while blaming the genre’s current box office domination for crowding out smaller, more intimate, more artful cinematic endeavors. Like, you know, theirs.Some filmmakers aren’t content to complain. In 2014, Alejandro G. Iñárritu turned his pitched antipathy for the form into the film Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) and spent its press junket gleefully calling out the witlessness of movies that were not, you know, his.That tension isn’t going away, which is why, no matter their commercial or critical appeal, don’t expect the 2018 spate of superhero films (Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp, etc.) to fare any better, come Oscar season, than others have before them.Neither, I predict, should you hold your breath for Logan to actually take home the statue on Oscar night. The competition is stiff (Call Me By Your Name, The Disaster Artist, Molly’s Game, Mudbound). It’s also up against a notable milestone, in the case of Mudbound, the very first adapted screenplay nominee co-written by a black woman. And given that Timothée Chalamet’s searching performance in Call Me By Your Name is likely to get trammeled, as it has all awards-season-long, by the prodigious latex jowls of Gary Oldman’s Churchill in Darkest Hour, look for this category to turn into Call Me By Your Name‘s consolation prize.Which Superhero Films Have Been Recognized By Oscar — And For What?1979Superman: The MovieNominations: best film editing; best sound; best scoreWins: Special Achievement Academy Award for visual effects 2013The Avengers Nominations: best visual effects 2014Iron Man 3Nominations: best visual effects 2003Spider-ManNominations: best sound; best visual effects 1996Batman ForeverNominations: best cinematography; best sound; best sound effects editing 2015Guardians of the GalaxyNominations: best makeup and hairstyling; best visual effects Sharelast_img read more

Product logistics Products and services would be futile to all business if users couldn’t actually obtain them. That’s why the key to any business’s success is an effective product distribution plan. This year, technology is streamlining the process of managing the warehousing and distribution of products. More importantly, it’s allowing consumers and brands to track their purchases from the warehouse all the way to delivery.This technology is helping businesses to increase revenue, too. GPS systems now track products that a year ago might have become lost or gone overlooked. New management software is contributing to revenue, as well: Because managers can better keep track of routes and employees, businesses can decide on fuel-efficient routes and cheaper delivery times.Technology advances are revolutionizing the computer hardware industry, in particular. Because a major objective of hardware companies is to to keep customers connected, a riveting technological innovation will be worth its weight in gold.2. Harder, better, faster, strongerJust a few years ago, the introduction of the iPad prompted brands to prematurely declare the death of the PC. New device categories, such as 2-in-1s and Ultrabooks, however, have proved those brands wrong. In turn, consumers are expecting hardware companies to take a few tips from these products’ functionality.Meaning that this year’s consumers will require lightening-speed devices and more hassle-free experiences from the products they buy.Consumers and businesses love tablets, for example, because they’re easy and adaptable. Customers can slip them into their pockets or bags without having to account for excessive weight or potential risk. These are innovations that brands implemented into their models to make them more compatible to a consumer’s everyday tasks. This trend will continue.Consumer demands are also urging brands to create thinner computers, with lasting durability. Longer battery life is a priority. That’s right, consumers are looking to purchase items whose batteries won’t drain with each new window they open. As such, hard-drive updates will have to account for the various applications that run in the background of an average user’s computer.Related: 12 Amazing Tech Innovations You’ll See at the Rio Olympics3. Tech Is cutting the big cordThe widening access to today’s technologies has also tacked on new responsibilities and chores for consumers: These days, they don’t just have to keep track of the various devices they own; now they have to make sure their batteries don’t run out. And lost chargers are now the new universal woe.Fortunately for consumers, wireless charging systems are fixing this burden. Yet, for companies that used to reap the benefits of misplaced chargers, these innovations might be a bit of a burden in itself.What do the big brands think of all this? Intel, Dell and Apple are just a few of the companies competing to introduce a product that allows consumers to simply set hardware down for a charge. Hardware companies will likely take tips from that investment by focusing more on the functionality of their products. Besides introducing batteries that last longer, they’ll likely consider the importance of convenience for customers as well.4. Biometric sensors This year’s technological changes will continue to revolutionize users’ expectations of security. Fingerprint reads have become an emerging software feature for computers in recent years, and this year won’t be any different. In fact, with service providers like banks rolling out Touch ID as an added feature, customers have a new expectation when it comes to their security: convenience.No one wants to type a 99-character alphanumeric sequence on their devices for a password; and 2017’s hardware can be expected to adapt.Related: Has Innovation Reached Its Breaking Point?Hardware companies will account for this new standard by adopting more secure safety measures. This step will likely include the use of biometric sensors as a product attribute — one of the new trends in today’s ever-evolving technology. 5 min readlast_img read more

To aid physicians during such interventions, Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. introduced Volume Navigation 3-D roadmapping for the Infinix-i vascular X-ray product line.Volume Navigation will be showcased at Toshiba’s booth at this year’s Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) annual meeting in Chicago, March 26–31, in booth 758.The real-time Volume Navigation 3-D roadmap displays the deployment of embolization coils during intervention on a cerebral aneurysm with clarity. It also links the movements of the system components with the fusion 3-D and fluoroscopic display, so despite changes in even table and C-arm position, the 3-D overlay is automatically aligned with the fluoroscopic image. In addition, Volume Navigation provides 2-D and 3-D roadmap display modes and allows physicians to fine-tune images with manual controls for device enhancement. Volume Navigation is designed to be particularly helpful for procedures on intricate vascular regions, such as the brain, uterus and abdominals.The system offers two display modes and three manual adjustments to optimize the image at any stage of the procedure. These features provide the tools physicians require to navigate complex anatomy with greater precision and control. Some of the tools include simultaneous 2-D roadmap and 3-D roadmap displays on separate monitors, enhanced visualization of wires and other interventional devices, and better visualization of complex arteriovenous malformation (AVM) shunt vessels.Volume Navigation is 510(k) cleared and available as an option on all Toshiba Infinix-i vascular X-ray systems.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Radiation Dose Management | May 23, 2019 ControlRad Announces FDA Clearance and Launch of ControlRad Trace ControlRad Inc. announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted 510(k) clearance for its ControlRad… read more Philips and Microsoft have partnered to develop an augmented reality system to help imporve workflow and procedural navigation in the cath lab.
