Gardner Injury Lingers

first_imgTAMPA — New York Yankees left fielder Brett Gardner will take a slow approach at spring training because of a lingering wrist injury.General manager Brian Cashman said Thursday that Gardner bruised his left wrist running into the wall in last year’s AL wild-card game against Houston.“It’s gotten mostly better, but bone bruises can stay for a while so we’re just going to stagger him out,” Cashman said. “I know he feels good, but we’re just going to take it slow because we can. The season is not upon us tomorrow. Just part of the safe route. Spring training is long enough.”Gardner took part in defensive drills Thursday and advanced from dry swings over the past few weeks to hitting 25 balls apiece off a tee and soft toss. He will take a day off swinging the bat FridayGardner said his concern level is low and hopes to take on-field batting practice within the next couple weeks.“I feel lot better today than where I was at a month ago,” Gardner said. “I was a lot more concerned than I am now. I’m excited about the way I felt today. I’m not up to speed hitting but everything is a go.”Gardner suffered a bruised right wrist last year after getting hit by pitch in an April game against Baltimore.Also Thursday, closer Aroldis Chapman missed his second workout this week. He had an excused absence to tend to a family matter.Chapman is scheduled to throw off a mound Friday.TANAKA TIMEMasahiro Tanaka, who had a procedure in October to remove a bone spur on his throwing elbow, threw 35 pitches broken into two segments during his fourth mound session.It’s possible the right-hander could throw batting practice early next week.“So far, so good,” Cashman said. “No issues. No complaints.”The Yankees expect Tanaka to be ready for his first regular-season start, barring any setbacks.NOTESIvan Nova threw batting practice for the first time. … CC Sabathia is listed for a mound session Friday. … Guest instructor Hideki Matsui arrived at camp.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Lottery Scammers Could Be Extradited – Minister Bunting

first_imgNational Security Minister, Hon. Peter Bunting, has indicated that persons involved in the lottery scam could face extradition to the United States (US), to face charges. “There is a close working relationship and joint investigations taking place…so it would not surprise me if any of these resulted in an indictment in the US and a subsequent extradition request,” the Minister said, as he addressed journalists at a press briefing at the Office of the Prime Minister, on Thursday, March 14. Mr. Bunting pointed out that the idea of extradition came up repeatedly during the hearing of the recent US Senate Special Committee on Ageing, which discussed the Jamaican lottery scam and its effect on seniors. He said the US Senators believe that extradition would be an effective tool in helping to send a signal to scammers, that the US law enforcement was taking the issue seriously. The Minister met with members of the US Congress to submit the Government of Jamaica’s sworn testimony to the committee outlining Jamaica’s efforts to fight lottery scammers. “The fact that we were able to demonstrate so many tangible initiatives in just the last twelve months, I think, help in making the case that it was now getting the attention it deserves,” Mr. Bunting said. In the meantime, the Minister is hoping to see increased numbers of successful prosecutions, once the new Law Reform (Fraudulent Transactions) (Special Provisions) Act, 2013, which targets scammers, comes into effect later this month.“Hopefully, you may even see some prosecution in the United States and collectively, I think, this will have a powerful deterrent on the activity,” Mr. Bunting added.The new legislation is expected to be passed in the Senate on Friday, March 15, before being signed by the Governor General and gazetted to become law.Justice Minister, Senator the Hon. Mark Golding, said the Bill has received a favourable response from the Business Process Outsourcing Industry Association and players in the remittance business.“They were relieved to see that something was at last being done to strengthen legislative framework,” Senator Golding said.By Andrea Braham, JIS Reporterlast_img read more

Australian charged after police allege Canadian girl exploited online

first_imgAn Australian man has been charged after police allege he exploited a nine-year-old Canadian girl online.Police in Sydney, Australia, said they began investigating the man in November 2017 thanks to a tip from the RCMP.Police alleged the man had been communicating online with a woman in Canada and engaging in “sexually explicit conversations” about her nine-year-old daughter.They alleged the man requested photos of the girl and engaged in an “explicit video call” with her.Police said a 42-year-old man from a suburb of Sydney was arrested earlier this month.“Shortly after the arrest, a search warrant was executed at a nearby home unit, where investigators seized laptops, mobile phones, electronic storage devices, and an extendable baton,” police said in a statement.The man, who was not named by police, was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday on charges of “using a carriage service for child pornography, using a carriage service for sexual activity with a person under 16 years, and possess prohibited weapon.”Australian police did not say whether the girl’s mother was facing any charges in Canada, and RCMP did not immediately respond to a request for comment.last_img read more

Monaco UK probe vast corruption scandal in oil business

PARIS – Monaco’s government says it is helping British authorities investigate a “vast corruption scandal” implicating an unspecified number of international oil companies, the tiny European principality said in a statement released late Thursday.The statement said several executives of the Monaco-based company UNAOIL had been questioned over the past few days and that their homes and headquarters had been searched following an urgent request from Britain’s Serious Fraud Office.“These searches and interviews took place in the presence of British officials as part of a vast corruption scandal which implicates several foreign companies active in the oil sector,” the statement said. “Evidence will be used by British officials as part of their investigations.”Few further details were made available and Monaco’s government said going into specifics might compromise the investigation. A UNAOIL spokeswoman said the company “has no comment at this time.” The Serious Fraud Office also declined comment.UNAOIL was at the centre of a multi-part expose published Wednesday by the Huffington Post and Australia’s Fairfax Media, which accuses the business of having “systematically corrupted the global oil industry” by delivering millions in bribes on behalf of well-known multinationals to secure contracts.The company has denied the allegations. Asked by both publications whether UNAOIL paid bribes, the company’s Chief Executive Ata Ahsani was quoted as saying: “The answer is absolutely no.”The publications alleged that a slew of global companies were linked to the scandal, including the offshore arm of Australian contract miner Leighton Holdings. On Friday, the Australian Federal Police confirmed they were investigating allegations that Leighton employees were involved in the payment of bribes during two oil projects in Iraq in 2010 and 2011. The police agency declined to comment further, citing the ongoing investigation.Leighton changed its name to CIMIC last year. Fiona Tyndall, a spokeswoman for CIMIC, said Friday that the company had no comment.The publications said they drew on information gleaned from hundreds of thousands of internal emails between 2002 and 2012 for their six-month investigation.Fairfax, which described the trove as “the biggest leak of confidential files in the history of the oil industry,” said the files held evidence of bribes paid to Middle Eastern oil chiefs and other officials, sometimes with the knowledge — and occasionally with the active participation — of the multinationals involved. Investigative reporter Nick McKenzie said that initial tip-off about the scandal arrived in the mail, with instructions to place an ad in a French newspaper carrying the code words “Monte Christo” if he wanted to know more.Fairfax said UNAOIL did not challenge of the authenticity of the documents involved and instead sent a letter through its lawyers demanding that Farifax wipe the material from its servers.___Associated Press writer Rod McGuirk in Canberra, Australia, contributed to this report.___An earlier version of this story misspelled the last name of reporter Nick McKenzie.

Great Scott Lego is officially going Back to the Future

first_imgLetting Lego fans design and vote what sets are created next is possibly the best idea Lego has ever had. Because of crowd sourcing site Cuusoo, a Back to the Future Lego set has become a reality. The campaign was launched over a year ago and since then the project has gathered over 10,000 supporters to get this set approved for production.The set will be called 21103 Back to the Future Time Machine. The original campaign was for a Lego DeLorean in its three different forms; the standard DeLorean from BTTF 1, complete with a Marty figure, skateboard, and a Doc figure. The DeLorean with hover modification (created by using clear blocks to make it float) from BTTF 2 along with Marty, a hoverboard, and Doc in his future outfit. And lastly, a western-themed BTTF3 set.It’s unclear which set Lego has chosen to recreate, though. At a guess I’d say it’s likely to be the standard BTTF 1 set or a version in which you can build whatever version of the DeLorean you like best. According to Lego Cuusoo, the final product is in development with the licence partner, Universal Partnerships & Licensing, and the final model will become available sometime in mid 2013.Next page: More pictures and a video! 1 2last_img read more

The 8 Thirstiest Disney Villain Songs

first_img According to Polygon, the remake of The Lion King won’t have “Be Prepared,” which is the best Disney villain song (fight me). Instead of talking about that, this news spurred a discussion in the Geek.com content pit about the thirstiest villain songs. Because some villain songs are imposing. Some villain songs are operative. And some villain songs are straight-up about raw-dog boning.If you go back through classic Disney movies, you’ll see a lot of villain songs being about one of two things: How much the villain fucks, or how much the villain wants to fuck. So, list drive go, let’s get some gross stupid on this page.8. “Love is an Open Door” (Frozen)“Maybe it’s the party talking, or the chocolate fondue.”In Hans’ hands, thirstiness is a weapon. And because the song’s a duet with Anna and Hans, we’ll classify it as a villain song. Charming nobleman preying on one of the heroines purely to get power. Anna’s heart is Hans’ way to the throne, and Anna’s pants is Hans’ way to Anna’s heart.7. “Mine Mine Mine” (Pocahontas)“But think how they’ll squirm when they see how I glitter! The ladies at court will be all a-twitter”You can’t get the ladies if you don’t have the cash, or at least that’s Ratcliffe’s philosophy. He came to the new world to make a name for himself and climb the social ladder, so he can pull down some courtly strange. This isn’t the thirstiest song on the list by far, but you know what he’s all about. Find the mother lode, then find another load.6. “Shiny” (Moana)“I will sparkle like a wealthy woman’s neck.”Tamatoa is what happens when David Bowie turns into a giant enemy crab. Dude’s the most glam thing I’ve seen in a Disney movie. There’s no doubt about it: This crab fucks.5. “Friends on the Other Side” (The Princess and the Frog)“Sit down at my table, put your minds at ease. If you relax it’ll enable me to do anything I please.”This song isn’t directly thirsty in its lyrics or theme, but it really shows off Dr. Facilier’s thirstiness and how he fuels it. He’s a greedy, power-hungry voodoo sorcerer who dresses like Willy Wonka’s pimp cousin, and he’s voiced by Keith David, who famously didn’t take it out for air. You know Dr. Facilier fucks the moment you see and hear him, before any song starts playing. But then he starts dealing cards and making his pitch, and you see exactly how he fucks: with style, and the cash he swindles out of tourists.4. “Poor, Unfortunate Souls” (The Little Mermaid)“You’ll have your looks, your pretty face. And don’t underestimate the importance of body language!”Ursula, the Sea Witch, is in modern parlance, a BBW. Unfortunately, with Disney animation’s view of body image, that means she can’t get a lot of play. So what can a woman do but enable some protagonist banging until she gets her own chance? Lots of Disney villains use magic, but few use magic to help the hero get some dick.3. “The Elegant Captain Hook” (Peter Pan)“There isn’t a boy who won’t enjoy a-workin’ for Captain Hook!”This song could have been called “I Need an Adult,” for all of the subtext it has. An imposing older man with creepy facial hair and wearing a long coat trying to entice a group of children to join him in his vehicle with promises of candy and fun? The main threat is bad enough, but the implications are much more unfortunate.2. “Gaston” (Beauty and the Beast)“No one hits like Gaston! Matches wits like Gaston!”And in bedrooms, nobody dicks like Gaston! While “The Mob Song” is a much darker and imposing track in Beauty and the Beast, Gaston’s opening number still counts as a villain song, and it’s entirely about how much Gaston fucks and does things related to fucking. Every woman wants him, every man wants to be him. And no one’s “neck” is incredibly thick like Gaston.1. “Hellfire” (The Hunchback of Notre Dame)“This burning desire is turning me to sin!”Frollo’s pained sex ballad is by far the thirstiest Disney villain song. It’s the only song that’s explicitly about how much the villain wants to fuck, but he can’t because church. Frollo’s the Archdeacon of Notre Dame and Esmeralda gives him a righteous rager, but because of his vows is wouldn’t be possible even if she was into him. Which she super isn’t. No other Disney film has a conflict that so clearly could have been solved by the villain just taking a few minutes to crank one out between scenes.

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.

The idea is to improve workflow and allow the tech to remain at the bedside longer to be with the patient, rather tucked away in a remote control room using an intercom.The entire system is built into the gantry seen here, so there is no need for extra equipment in a closet, cabinet or server tower.It comes in a 128 slice configuration with 4 cm of anatomical coverage per rotation.It uses the Stellar detector and tin filtration to eliminate low energy photons and help lower dose. It can be programmed to aid workflow by automatically removing bone, create cured planar reconstructions, lung CAD and other post-processing features so more time can be spent on reading scans. The scanner also comes with a HeartFlow FFR-CT starter pack.Find more information on this system in these related articles:New Cardiovascular CT Technology Entering the MarketNew Technology Highlights on the ACC 2019 Exhibit Floor Find more news and videos from AAPM.last_img read more

Obama urges House to pass worker aid seeks to revive trade

first_img Comments   Share   Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Arizona families, Arizona farms: providing the local community with responsibly produced dairy WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is calling on lawmakers to pass a worker assistance package whose defeat has placed his trade agenda in deep jeopardy.Obama on Friday issued a statement saying that the measure known as Trade Adjustment Assistance is to expire soon and inaction will hurt workers.Obama says new trade agreements should go hand in hand with support to American workers who’ve been harmed by trade in the past. The House voted against the trade assistance 302-126 on Friday after Democrats who typically support such aid decided it was the best way to undermine Obama’s efforts to gain trade negotiating powers.The trade bill would give Obama “fast track” authority to complete trade deals Congress could approve or reject but not amend.THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP’s earlier story is below.President Barack Obama is paying a surprise visit to Capitol Hill in an 11th-hour bid to save his struggling trade bill.The legislation looks short of votes because of Democratic opposition as it faces showdown votes in the House on Friday.Obama will speak to House Democrats at a special caucus meeting behind closed doors in the basement of the Capitol.A House Democratic aide was not authorized to discuss the visit because it had not been publicly announced and confirmed it on condition of anonymity.The trade bill would give Obama so-called “fast track” authority to complete trade deals Congress could approve or reject but not amend.Many Democrats fear it would cost American jobs.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Sixth recordbreaking result for German incoming in a row

first_imgSource = German National Tourist Board Sixth record-breaking result for German incoming in a rowFor the year 2015, German incoming tourism is heading for the 80 million mark according to the latest information from the Federal Statistical Office.In the year the volume of international overnights in accommodation properties of at least 10 beds grew to 74.2 million overnights through November, an increase of 5.6 percent compared with the same period in 2014.Petra Hedorfer, CEO of the German National Tourist Board (GNTB), illustrates the numbers at hand: “Even compared with other European destination, Germany’s incoming numbers scored an above average result. According to the latest estimates by Eurostat, the number of international overnights in EU countries will grow by an average of 3.5 percent. With our prognosis of 5.7 percent, we are well above this value and also rank above all other big tourism destinations.”Over-proportionate growth from the overseas marketsWith a growth of 11.1 percent through the end of November, the international source markets confirm their role as growth engines for German incoming tourism. Despite the current economic and currency risks in some high potential markets, overnight stays from China, for example, were 26.1 percent higher year-over-year. The Australian market is showing an increase of 3.2 percent year-over-year growth with 687.976 overnight stays between Jan-Nov 2015.Robust European source marketsAll important European source markets for Germany’s incoming tourism scored higher results through the end of November than during the same period the previous year. Ranked in first place are the Netherland with an increase of 1.9 percent; with Switzerland recording significant growth (+8.6 percent) in second place. The United Kingdom recorded 7.6 percent more overnights. The biggest winner in the Top 10 markets is Spain with an increase of 23.2 percent, while the biggest loser amongst the European source markets is Russia – a decline in overnights of 29.7 percent puts the country back to its 2011 levels.Cautious optimism for 2016Some uncertainty informs the start to 2016. “Destination Germany, as an internationally popular brand with its outstanding infrastructure and excellent value-for- money offerings is predestined to continue its growth history in the international competition in a sustainable manner. However, economic uncertainties in many markets and the threat of terrorism attacks dampen the wanderlust. Furthermore, negative impacts of the refugee situation are recorded in some source markets. Therefore, we believe that a growth rate of one to three percent is realistic for 2016,“ states Petra Hedorfer about the current growth forecast. German National Tourist Boardlast_img read more
