Recommendations of AlQuds Committee call to protect Holy City FM

first_imgMarrakech – The recommendations of the 20th meeting of Al-Quds Committee, held on January 17-18 in Marrakech, under the chairmanship of  King Mohammed VI, call upon the international community to save the holy city and stop the Israeli occupation policies aimed at changing its legal status, said on Saturday Foreign Minister, Salaheddine Mezouar. These recommendations are a “clear and frank” message to the international community to work towards the preservation of the civilizational, cultural, and human heritage of Al-Quds, he added in a statement to the press following a meeting with Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Iyad Madani.“The Marrakech meeting reflects the commitment to put the issue of Al-Quds at the heart of our future agenda,” he said, noting that there will be no solution to the Israeli-Palestinian without preserving the legal status of the Holy City.The meeting highlighted the efficiency of the vision of  the King to strengthen the diplomatic and political action to preserve the identity of Al-Quds and its cultural heritage, Mezouar noted, adding that the meeting has strengthened the role of Bayt Mal Al-Quds Agency in carrying out effective development programs benefitting the population of the city.last_img read more

Joe Paterno Statue Could Come Down In Next 72

Joe Paterno Statue — a statue of legendary coach Joe Paterno in front of Penn State’s Beaver Stadium — may be the next casualty in the nasty ongoing fallout of the child sex abuse scandal.The decision whether to remove or move Joe Paterno statue is expected to be made by the school president Rodney Erickson within the next three days, a source familiar with Erickson’s plans told ESPN’s “Outside the Lines.”Much of the consternation on what to do about the statue stems from how the NCAA will perceive the actions. The school is fearful of the governing body leveling the “death penalty” on the football program.Trustees said on the show that the board had a spirited discussion about the statue in a conference call Thursday night — the same call in which the resignation of former board chairman Steve Garban was discussed. But the decision is not theirs, they said.Various tweets Friday morning said the board had voted and/or made a decision about the statue and that it would be removed this weekend. If the board had taken a vote during the call, it would have violated state law, which prohibits votes from being taken outside of declared board meetings.The trustees who spoke Friday morning said board members did discuss possibilities for the statue, including moving it from the stadium area, perhaps to the library on campus that bears the Paterno name or the Penn State All Sports Museum near the stadium. Board spokesman David LaTorre declined to comment Friday morning.The trustees have been concerned this week that the NCAA will hand down an extreme punishment, possibly the death penalty for its football program for its “loss of institutional control” during the Sandusky years. Dealing with the statue issue, and the resignation of Garban, has been needed to show the public the board was serious about “moving forward,” one trustee said.“It’s a highly sensitive decision,” another trustee said Friday. “The decision is a symbolic one. We have to be very careful about what kind of message we send.” read more

Politicians must not collude to stop closures of unsafe hospital services

first_imgSeveral of the plans have already triggered protests. Councils in north-west London have objected to plans which could see the number of major hospitals cut from nine to five.  Across Dorset, hospital beds will be cut from 1,810 to 1,570 with the centralisation of A&E services at Royal Bournemouth Hospital, under proposals. In Leicestershire and Rutland, the plan is to cut the number of hospitals from three to two, and cut acute hospital beds from 1,940 to 1,697. And plans for south-west London aim to achieve a 44 per cent reduction in inpatient bed days, with a 13 per cent dropped in planned operations.Derbyshire plans to slash 400 acute hospital beds, while 200 beds are earmarked for closure at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. Stevens Simon Stevens recently told MPs that hospitals were not being “feckless” but under heavy pressureCredit:PA  Axing hundreds of beds was “simply not credible given the state of our acute hospitals this winter, which is likely to be similar next winter.”In the weeks running up to Christmas, more than a dozen hospitals across Englan were running at 100 per cent capacity, with latest figures showing average occupancy is still over 95 per cent.Last week a coroner wrote to the head of the NHS, after a woman died from a brain haemorrhage after at least three hospitals refused to admit her for surgery because they had no intensive care beds.Mr Ham said the NHS needed to embark on “difficult conversations with the public” about how changes should be achieved. It came as new figures showed NHS trusts racked up a deficit of nearly £900m in the first nine months of the 2016/17 financial year.Even that was only achieved because of a £1.8bn fund put aside to help hospitals tackle their financial problems, leaving an underlying deficit of close to £3bn, experts said.On Monday a report revealed that the NHS has seen the loss of 15,000 beds in just six years, with around one in ten closed. And he urged politicians to support changes as long as there was a clear evidence base for them.A failure to do could leave patients to suffer at the hands of poor services, he said.”If you’re not willing to do go through that process and support plans of this kind, essentially you are colluding as politicians in the continuation of unsafe services,” he said.Draft plans have been submitted from 44 areas of the country, and are now being considered by health service officials.Major changes to services – such as the loss of an Accident & Emergency unit or maternity ward  will require public consultation.

Too many hospital services are “unsafe” and politicians must not “collude” to keep them open because they fear controversy over closures, a leading think tank has said.NHS authorities are drawing up radical plans to reorganise services in a bid to save £22bn and cope with rising demand from an ageing population.Draft plans suggest this could result in the closure of 24 Accident & Emergency departments, with swingeing bed cuts.The King’s Fund today urged politicians to back radical changes as “the best hope” of achieving essential reforms. But it also urged NHS leaders to rewrite many of the proposals – saying it was “simply not credible” to scale back bed numbers when wards have been stretched to the limit this winter. In other areas, services will be centralised or merged, such as in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough where orthopaedics, stroke, maternity and paediatrics could be centralised.The think tank said the plans were “an opportunity to move care closer to home and moderate demand for hospital services.”But it said improvements would not be made unless investment was made first in services in the community.Chris Ham, chief executive of the think tank, said many hospitals were at “the limits” of their capacity.”We do not think now is the time to start cutting back on acute hospital beds and capacity, anything like on the scale set out in some of the plans,” he said.last_img read more

Police officers killed in line of duty should be eligible for Elizabeth

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Police officers killed in the line of duty should be eligible for the Elizabeth Cross, senior officers have said.The Police Superintendents’ Association (PSA) is calling for the change in a bid to heal the relationship between the Government and the police and “bring value back to the service.”It comes just less than a month after the death of Pc Andrew Harper, who was killed while responding to reports of a burglary in Berkshire.Chief Superintendent Paul Griffiths, president of the PSA, is expected to ask Priti Patel, the Home Secretary to consider the change and to try to influence the decision.The Elizabeth Cross is one of the highest honours for military personnel killed in action and is awarded to victims’ next of kin. He wants the government to face up to “the human cost” of the cuts and will say: “The cost of running the service has been shifting from the organisation to the individual and this is not acceptable or fair.”Referring to officer safety, Mr Griffiths will warn that officers are “suffering as victims of their own dedication”.”These are the people we need to support and we owe them the promise of a commitment to change, support and value,” he will add.Officer numbers at the rank of superintendent have been cut by 25 per cent since 2010, according to the PSA, making it the worst affected rank across the police force.Three-quarters of members said they had experienced an increased workload in the last 12 months, with the average superintendent working 53 hours a week – 50 per cent more than the UK average.Mr Griffiths will call upon the Home Secretary to increase the number of superintendents as part of the plan to boost police numbers by 20,000. The commemorative emblem was created in 2009 to recognise the challenges that service personnel face on operations and from terrorism, and the particular burden this places on their families. It can be awarded in memory of personnel who have died since the Second World War.The subject is on the agenda at the PSA’s annual conference in Stratford-Upon-Avon which begins on Monday.Mr Griffiths will open the event with a plea to Ms Patel to “heal” the relationship between the government and the police after years of spending cuts.

Apple to cease Mac Pro shipments to Europe

first_imgMost consumers who want to own Apple devices only think about an iPhone, iPod, iPad, MacBook, or iMac. But there is another Apple product that’s aimed at the professional or power home user: the Mac Pro. Prices start at a hefty $2,499, but in return your get a desktop machine with up to 12 cores and therefore a lot of performance.Unfortunately, Apple has neglected to update or promote the Mac Pro %displayPrice% at %seller% line for quite a while and they still rely on Intel’s Xeon processors. Now it seems even if you do want one, soon you won’t be able to across Europe.From March, Apple has announced it will no longer be offering the Mac Pro for sale across all countries within Europe. The reason is one of regulatory requirements. Apparently, Amendment 1 of regulation IEC 60950-1, Second Edition comes into effect on March 1 and the Mac Pro power supply and wiring does not come up to spec. So rather than updating the internals of the machine, which Apple clearly doesn’t want to do, it will instead stop offering it for sale.If you want a Mac Pro you will have to be quick. The existing stock will likely be sold until February 28, but after that Apple probably won’t be allowed to sell any that are left and will end up recycling them rather than shipping them back to the US. Who knows, we may even see a sale of the hardware to clear it nearer the end of the month.Apple’s failure to update the Mac Pro demonstrates the changing marketplace for consumers. People want Apple laptops or super thin all-in-one desktops like the new iMac. The market for performance desktops and servers, with Apple’s name on at least, has all but disappeared as far as the company are concerned.via 9to5Maclast_img read more

Balloon pilots make history with transPacific flight

first_imgALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — An audacious, nearly 7,000-mile-long trip across the Pacific Ocean came to an end Saturday as two accomplished pilots safely touched down in the water just off the coast of Mexico in their helium-filled balloon after shattering two long-standing records.Troy Bradley of Albuquerque and Leonid Tiukhtyaev of Russia landed 4 miles offshore in Baja California about 300 miles north of the popular beach destination of Cabo San Lucas. Initial plans called for a landing on the beach, but the pilots decided to come in low and drop trailing ropes into the ocean to help slow the balloon for a controlled water landing. Mission control in Albuquerque was packed with supporters of the Two Eagles team as the balloon descended, with all eyes focused on a giant screen showing a map of the coast and the balloon’s location. It wasn’t until the crowd received word that the pilots were safe and aboard a fishing boat headed to the shore that cheers erupted and the cork was popped on a bottle of champagne.“I can say on behalf of the entire mission control center, that we are all very excited and relieved,” mission control director Steve Shope said.last_img read more

Road Closures Along Beaver Loop Rd Begin On Monday

first_imgThrough late September, crews will be building the bike path, replacing pipes, and rebuilding a section between Bridge Access Road and Kenai Spur Highway. According to McCarthy, the project will wrap up for the winter in mid-October, but there will be about three months of work in the Summer of 2020. No through traffic will be allowed but local access will be maintained, according to the Department of Transportation. The Alaska Department of Transportation, in cooperation with QAP, is resurfacing Beaver Loop Road, from Bridge Access Road to Kenai Spur Highway, and construct turn lanes, as well as a separated pedestrian pathway. Project work will include installing grading, drainage improvements, illumination, guardrail, signing, and striping.center_img From Monday, September 16 through Friday, September 27, Beaver Loop Road will be CLOSED from Bridge Access Road to Barabara Drive. There will be posted detours. Shannon McCarthy with the Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities: “The contractor QAP, they’re going to working as many daylight hours as possible, so probably fourteen hour days. They are going to have to do a huge digout a thousand feet long, about six feet deep. And there’s also replacing three large multi-plate pipes. One is for fish passage and the other two are for drainage.

Impossible Burger 20 tastes too real for this vegetarian

first_img Tags The Impossible Burger gets a beefy upgrade at CES 2019 26 Photos 4:46 These are the weirdest products of CES 2019 Share your voice CES 2019: See all of CNET’s coverage of the year’s biggest tech show.CES schedule: It’s six days of jam-packed events. The steak tartare that beat me.  Joan E. Solsman/CNET I have a pretty strong stomach. Roller coasters are my jam. Virtual reality never makes me queasy. No technology at CES had ever made me nauseous — until I ate fake beef tartare made from the latest version of Impossible Burger.A scoop of tartare — mixed through with finely diced onions, mustard and capers — glistened on a poker-chip-size slice of chewy rye bread. It was expertly prepared by Mike Minor, the mustachioed executive chef of Border Grill in Las Vegas. As he folded the ingredients into the ruddy pink ground beef with two spoons, I asked him what difference he notices between this fake tartare and the kind that comes from cows.center_img He struggled to come up with something while he mixed. It doesn’t have the same “iron-y” flavor as real raw beef, he conceded. Less “iron-y” flavor sounded like a perk to me.”Here,” he said, as he handed me the first sample from his latest batch. “Be my taste tester. Does it need anything? Salt?”I stalled as I chewed. Think! Say something about saltiness. My stomach started objecting to what was going on in my mouth. “I haven’t had beef in more than a decade,” I said through my mouthful, hoping the disclaimer might mask my growing revulsion. “It’s kind of grossing me out.”20190107-174908Border Grill’s executive chef, Mike Minor, crafts tartare from Impossible Foods’ new plant-based meat.  Joan E. Solsman/CNET Impossible Foods, the maker of the so-called “bleeding” plant-based Impossible Burger, unveiled a new version of the “beef” product Monday at CES 2019. It’s the company’s first product update since the launch of the original burger in 2016. It’s also the next step in the company’s mission to make fake meat taste so good that we eliminate animals as a “food production technology” by 2035.According to Impossible Foods, this marks the first time CES has ever exhibited food as a technology.To the company’s credit, every other preparation of the latest Impossible Burger was delicious. The very best was the actual burger — with the soft bun, tangy sauce, zesty crunch of barely-there raw onion and refreshing crisp of lettuce and tomato. Combined with the juicy, chewy patty, it tasted amazing because it tasted like a real burger. Take note: This relish comes from someone who looked under the bun of her Happy Meal hamburger as a grade schooler and — after close inspection of the grayish, pockmarked meat — swore off burgers forever. I didn’t totally stick to that vow. I ate a burger from Manhattan’s Corner Bistro sometime around 2005, figuring after more than a decade without burgers I should give them another try. It didn’t stick.My darling, my veggie burgerMost people give up meat for health reasons, out of ethical concern for animals or to lessen their personal contribution to our collective environmental doom. To me, those are all great bonus features of vegetarianism but, really, I gave up meat for the best of all possible reasons. I fell in love. When I met my now-husband, he had been a vegetarian for several years already. One of the most amiable people I’ve ever met, Nick never flinched when I ate meat in front of him. He didn’t guilt me when I devoured chicken burritos as big as my head. But I started to feel bad when it came time to kiss goodnight after I’d wolfed down a plate of coq au vin on a date with him. He shouldn’t be forced to kiss my revolting meat-juicy mouth. I needed to dump one of them. I loved Nick more. Being vegetarian for so long means I’ve discovered veggie burgers that I’ll eat with glee. Northstar Cafe’s beet-and-black-bean burger in my childhood hometown of Columbus, Ohio, is such a favorite that Nick and I copied the recipe to make it at home. (It’s never as good as the real thing.)But even the best veggie burgers aren’t burgers. They’re sandwiches with ingredients shaped into a patty. Calling them a “burger” works as a shorthand for how they’re prepared and served, but it’s hardly a descriptor for how they taste.dsc02622The Beyond Burger was preferred by three out of four CNET’s very unofficial taste testers. (The fourth tester hated them all.) Joan E. Solsman/CNET Bleeding burgers, like Impossible’s and the Beyond Burger, are like delicious bombs of nostalgia in my mouth. They remind me of a food I forgot I could enjoy. Impossible Burger 2.0 is a major improvement on these. As my carnivorous colleague Dara Kerr put it, “If the current burger tastes like an OK Sizzler steak, then this new version is a well-massaged Kobe ribeye.”Doing ‘research’To prepare for tasting Burger 2.0, three of my CNET colleagues and I went to a Vegas vegan junk-food joint where they serve both the original Impossible Burger and the Beyond Burger. Both got lukewarm thumbs-up from two of my meat-eating colleagues.”I’ve been thinking long and hard about going vegetarian, mainly to take personal responsibility for climate change and whatnot. I eat a lot of meat. A lot a lot. Mainly because, uh… I love meat,” Mark Serrels, CNET’s Australia editorial director, said. “The Beyond burger was best, and the greatest compliment I can give it is this: If I stumbled across this burger at a family barbecue, I might eat it and think, ‘Hmmm, that was a mediocre burger, but it’s definitely a burger made of animal flesh,'” Serrels added. “That’s a compliment. I think.”But another of my colleagues, who was raised on a cattle farm and is picky about her meat, was so turned off by Impossible’s burger that she couldn’t finish eating it. Impossible is hoping its latest burger could sway people like her. The new product officially replaced the older version Tuesday. It’ll be available first in about a dozen high-end restaurants across the US and then roll out to all Impossible Foods partner restaurants in early February. The company plans to sell a raw version of the “ground beef” in grocery stores by the end of the year, at a price set to match USDA premium ground beef.I thought of her when my stomach turned at the thought of finishing my tartare. I meandered away from Minor, the tartare’s chef, to the other side of the patio so I could hide the rest of my sample under someone’s napkin. Maybe the best sign that Impossible Foods has cracked the code to realistic fake meat is that I couldn’t stand to take another bite. That’s also a compliment. I think.

New RIS features improve radiologists’ productivity, speed reports and improve exam quality.One improvement — Sectra embeds Nuance’s latest PowerScribe Speech Recognition into its RIS to provide a seamless experience for radiologists. New features include improved presentation of prior reports and external documents, as well as voice-driven commands to speed dictation, BI-RADS coding and report generation.Another feature, Protocol Worklist, allows a radiologist to efficiently review clinical information and select or change the technical protocol for a procedure as needed. This helps to improve the quality of an exam and patient care as well as reduce the need for re-takes. A resident reading workflow module allows a resident to dictate a preliminary diagnostic report, which is then sent to an attending radiologist’s worklist for approval. The attending can either approve the report or send it back to the resident (with comments) for correction.Batch printing enables batch printing to be configured separately by facility and priority. Reports can be routed based on patient locations, physician departments, exam rooms and facilities. Batches can also be scheduled.

first_img Top Stories 0 Comments   Share   “That’s been happening too much to us.”The play Whisenhunt was referring to was a first and ten at the Cardinals’ 25-yard line following Greg Zeuerlein’s missed 35-yard field goal. Fitzgerald lined up to the left against Janoris Jenkins, and beat him cleanly off the line. The Rams brought a delayed blitz with eight defenders rushing the quarterback against eight Cardinal blockers, including tight ends Jeff King and Rob Housler and running back Beanie Wells. But King got beat on the right of the formation by Rocky McIntosh, who sacked Lindley for a one-yard loss. The Cardinals would punt two plays later.Despite the struggles in the passing game, Whisenhunt applauded Fitzgerald for remaining positive.“Larry’s been great, he works hard every day, he wants to be successful and it hurts him when he’s not,” he said. “We’re all frustrated, but it hasn’t affected Larry from the standpoint of how he’s dealt with his teammates and how he works in practice.” It looked as if Larry Fitzgerald would have a huge day against the St. Louis Rams Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium.After all, Fitzgerald did catch three balls for 31 yards on Arizona’s 15-play, 91-yard scoring drive on their first possession.Unfortunately for Fitz, and for Fantasy Football owners everywhere, the numbers on the stat sheet wouldn’t change for the remainder of the game. Three catches, 31 yards. In the Cardinals’ last two games, Fitzgerald has just four catches for 42 yards, and the six-time Pro Bowler has just one 100-yard game this season. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Fitzgerald’s diminished production isn’t from a lack of trying to get him the ball. Sunday, Cardinals quarterback Ryan Lindley targeted Fitzgerald 12 times — but simply missed him on a number of occasions.“Two of those interceptions would’ve been big plays to Larry had we gone about it correctly, and that seems to be what’s happening,” Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt said Monday. “We missed those two times and we missed him on a couple of other things. But we’re going to continue to work to get opportunities to Larry.”Fitzgerald is tied for sixth in the NFL with 113 targets through 11 games. But his 55 catches rank tied for 15th in the league, so something is wrong.“It’s hard because you don’t know how much goes into trying to work to get these situations,” Whisenhunt said. “And when we do get them and they come up and you have it there, and we don’t execute on it…you’re frustrated you didn’t get it done.”And sometimes the effort to get the ball to No. 11 is derailed even before a throw occurs. “On one sack, we had Larry running wide open down the field and we made a mistake in the line and Ryan had to slide to his left and actually ended up taking a sack on first and ten,” Whisenhunt explained. “You look at that play and it’s something you work to set up and Larry’s behind everybody and that’s where Ryan’s going to go with it, but we have a breakdown.last_img read more
