UN envoy begins fiveday visit to Myanmar

Ibrahim Gambari, Special Adviser on Myanmar, also held meetings with diplomats, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the Tripartite Core Group, comprising the UN, the Government of Myanmar and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).In addition, he was briefed by the UN Country Team on the first day of his visit, his fourth since the Government’s crackdown on peaceful protesters last summer.“In accordance with his mandate, Mr. Gambari intends to meet with all relevant parties to the national reconciliation process, including all those whom he has met on previous occasions,” UN spokesperson Farhan Haq said in response to a reporter’s question about the Adviser’s schedule for the duration of his visit.On his last trips to Myanmar, Mr. Gambari met with detained pro-democracy leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and the country’s senior leaders.“This visit is the continuation of the Secretary-General’s good offices process that was led by led by Mr. Gambari over the past two and a half years, and follows the recent visit to Myanmar by the Secretary-General himself” in the aftermath of May’s devastating Cyclone Nargis, Mr. Haq said. 18 August 2008The top United Nations envoy to Myanmar kicked off his five-dray trip to the Asian nation today by meeting with Foreign Minister U Nyan Win. read more

Michael OLeary The government should scrap one of Irelands greatest policy catastrophes

first_img Take me to Fora “When they find that they may not be able to fly to Spain or Italy on their holidays or that they might have to get visa to get to Spain or Italy on their holidays, I think there’s going to be a sea change in the attitude of the average British citizen towards the misinformation on which they voted in the original Brexit referendum.”Written by Conor McMahon and posted on Fora.ie “It was one of the great policy catastrophes, admittedly from a long line of policy catastrophes, from a Fianna Fáil-led government. We can’t afford to see that (tax) return.”The tax was brought in with the 2009 Budget, announced in October 2008, initially levying a €10 charge on all passengers flying further than 300km from Dublin. It was changed to €3 in 2011.It coincided with a dramatic slowdown in air traffic through Ireland as the financial crisis tore through the economies of both the Republic and its trading partners.O’Leary also called for further “deregulation and liberalisation within the aviation market for Europe” as well as a ”reduction in ownership restrictions on airlines”.“These are not big policy issues,” he said. “We have many players in this industry who fight like cats and dogs on a daily basis, but we’ve come together to agree on these (issues).”O’Leary said it was now up to the government to implement recommendations from major players in the aviation sector.“Governments are great for holding conferences,” he said.“We’re going to sit here and talk until lunchtime. That’s not an excuse or replacement for action. We now need to see some action coming back from (Transport Minister Shane Ross), from the Department of Transport and from the Department of Finance.” Michael O’Leary and DAA CEO Kevin Toland Source: Leah Farrell/Rollingnews.iePoor infrastructureSpeaking on the same panel as O’Leary, Aer Lingus boss Stephen Kavanagh warned that Dublin Airport is turning away business because its existing infrastructure can’t handle extra traffic.Kavanagh said the state’s largest airport will turn away traffic in 2017 because of poor infrastructure, which is already “constraining growth in 2018″.Directly addressing DAA chief Kevin Toland, Kavanagh asked that the existing runway at the airport be “fully exploited” as construction starts on a new runway and that “taxiways and exit points are upgraded in the interim to enable ourselves and other carriers to grow”. 18 Comments 19,041 Views Share Tweet Email By Fora Staff RYANAIR CHIEF MICHAEL O’Leary says the issue he’s “most attached to” is the formal abolition of the air travel tax.Speaking at the National Civil Aviation Development Forum on Monday, O’Leary said he was concerned the government had “simply reduced it to zero” – rather than doing away with the levy altogether.The Irish Times recently reported that finance minister Michael Noonan had rejected a proposal to officially get rid of the levy, which was reduced from €3 per passenger to zero in April 2014.“Taxing air travel saw traffic at the three airports go from 31 million (passengers) down to 23 million in two years,” O’Leary said. Image: AP/Press Association Images Short URL Kavanagh has previously warned that if Dublin doesn’t “extract maximum value” from existing infrastructure and invest in facilities to handle connecting traffic, it could see carriers migrate to Reykjavik or elsewhere. Aer Lingus CEO Stephen Kavanagh Source: Rollingnews.ieIn response, Toland said that “Dublin is clearly a lot busier than it has been” and that the airport was working to “get more out of our existing infrastructure to be in a position to squeeze more movements out of the runway”.“We’re still punching well above our weight,” he said, referring to punctuality and turnaround times at the airport.Toland said that developing infrastructure “doesn’t just end at an airport taxiway, it’s about the roads, it’s about the way of actually accessing the airport”.center_img Michael O’Leary: The government should scrap one of Ireland’s ‘greatest policy catastrophes’ The Ryanair boss said the air travel tax should be formally abolished. Image: AP/Press Association Images “That’s a fundamental danger this country faces,” he said. “If we don’t have decent infrastructure across the entire country, we are going to become uncompetitive and marginalised.”Responding to a question about the possibility of a second airport for the greater Dublin area – which Toland dubbed “mad” – Kavanagh said there was currently no need for one.But he added that if Dublin can’t be accessed “because the roads are clogged” or if the area surrounding the current airport “becomes so congested as to be a restraint, then for every reason that one shouldn’t have one, another airport may be a requirement”.BrexitBrexit also featured heavily throughout the discussion.Matthew Thomas, chief executive of Shannon Group – the company behind Shannon Airport – said fallout from the UK’s decision to leave the European Union was “a new dimension to enterprise risk management” at the company. National Civil Aviation Development Forum Source: Leah Farrell/Rollingnews.ie“We’re in an industry that’s tremendously resilient,” he said of the aviation sector. “It has dealt with everything from Gulf wars to 9/11 and just shown astonishing growth.”He said top of the list for the Shannon region is how Brexit could “change the appetite for FDI (foreign direct investment) into the west of Ireland”.Michael O’Leary – who exited the panel early to “beat up a couple of English ministers” at a Brexit meeting – repeated his comments from last week that “the British are going to find themselves staring over a cliff once they file Article 50″.“The British were sold a pup,” he said. “They were told if they leave Europe, nothing will change. They’re about to realise that you can leave Europe and everything is going to bloody change and it’s going to change for the worse.”He said there has been a “kind of phoney war for the last six months” where the British electorate voted to leave the union but “have not yet confronted any of the consequences of leaving”.

Helicopter crash investigation gets takeoff video

first_imgSEATTLE (AP) — Investigators trying to learn what caused a fiery helicopter crash near the Space Needle that killed two men on board and burned a third on the ground now have surveillance video footage that shows the aircraft taking off from a helipad, a National Transportation Safety Board official said Thursday.Seattle police cataloged the video footage captured by nearby businesses, pulled out the relevant bits and supplied copies to NTSB investigators, the NTSB’s Dennis Hogenson said.A number of nearby businesses, including the Space Needle and a McDonald’s restaurant, had some sort of video, and some of that showed the KOMO-TV news helicopter taking off Tuesday, he said. It plummeted to the street and burst into flames, setting three vehicles ablaze and spewing burning fuel down the street.In a Seattle Times interview, Hogenson also said officials want to understand how pilot Gary Pfitzner, who was killed in the crash, balanced two jobs — early mornings in the helicopter followed by work as a technical analyst at Boeing.Earlier this week, Mark Pfitzner said his brother typically had a seven-hour sleep window. Mark Pfitzner subsequently told The Times that his brother never worked fatigued and did not operate unsafely.last_img read more

Ratan Tatacontrolled trusts prematurely withdrew investments from Tata Sons Report

first_imgTwo trusts controlled by Ratan Tata withdrew their investments from Tata Sons as early as May this year, apparently an indication that all was not well with Cyrus Mistry’s leadership of the holding company. The investments were valued at about Rs 4,000 crore and held in the form of 39.5 million preference shares. Much before the pre-determined redemption date of the cumulative redeemable preference shares (CRPS), Jamsetji Tata Trust and Navajbhai Ratan Tata Trust redeemed their shares worth Rs 3,951 crore, according to the Business Standard.The investors (Trusts) were entitled to redemption of their investments before the due date if there was a disagreement on the dividend rate, according to the terms of investment. The shares accounted for approximately 90 percent of the paid-up share capital of Tata Sons of Rs 4,255 crore as of March 31, 2016, the daily said.Incidentally, the redemption by the Ratan Tata-controlled trusts came when the holding company (Tata Sons) was embroiled with Japanese telecom company Docomo in a $1.17 billion dispute.”Pursuant to the requests received from the trusts, the holders of the entire series of 39515000 – 8.25 percent Cumulative Redeemable Preference Shares (CRPS), the board approved the redemption of the said CRPS and the same were redeemed and paid on May 25, 2016, along with pro rata dividend for the period up to May 25, 2016,” the director’s report of Tata Sons said, according to the daily.Tata Sons is the promoter of the major operating Tata companies and holds significant shareholdings in these companies; about 66 percent of the equity capital of Tata Sons is held by philanthropic trusts endowed by members of the Tata family.last_img read more

Harnessing this enzyme could mean the beginning of a new platform for prostate cancer detection, staging, treatment and post-treatment monitoring, say researchers at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging’s 2013 Annual Meeting.“There are currently no ideal imaging techniques in clinical practice that are specific to prostate cancer,” said Shankar Vallabhajosula, Ph.D., a professor of radiochemistry from the department of radiology at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York, N.Y. “We regularly use bone scans to image metastatic prostate cancer, but bone scans are not specific for these tumors. This study focuses on a novel imaging agent that binds to PSMA, an enzyme expressed by prostate epithelial cells. We don’t really know what its role is in prostate cancer, but imaging agents using either anti-PSMA antibodies or small molecules that specifically bind to the enzymatic site of PSMA are capable of detecting both primary prostate cancer cells and secondary metastases in other organs. This development could lead to highly specific prostate cancer imaging and potentially optimal care for patients.”In two preliminary phase I clinical studies involving PSMA, also known as glutamate carboxypeptidase II (GCPII) or NAAG peptidase, researchers evaluated a novel imaging agent comprising a small molecule of amino acids, called MIP-1404 (based on glutamate-urea-glutamate pharmacophore) radiolabeled with technetium-99m (Tc-99m), a radioactive atom that can be detected by single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) that provides functional imaging of prostate cancer. Tc-99m MIP-1404 SPECT imaging produces a scan or a map of where this novel agent is bound to PSMA enzyme in metastatic prostate tumors throughout the body. Tc-99m MIP-1404 represents a much more commercially and clinically viable agent because it is easy to manufacture and has a faster rate of distribution throughout the body and clearance from the body, unlike imaging agents based on anti-PSMA monoclonal antibodies that were cumbersome and require long wait times to obtain images.Results of the study revealed that Tc-99m MIP-1404 was well distributed and ready for imaging as soon as one hour after injection for localization of cancer lesions in bone and lymph nodes. In a majority of cases, Tc-99m MIP-1404 pointed out more lesions than standard bone imaging.“This agent could one day be a molecular imaging biomarker not just for screening patients with prostate cancer and metastases but also for monitoring their response to subsequent treatment,” said Vallabhajosula. “In time, it could also be formulated as a therapeutic radioactive drug.”According to 2013 data from the American Cancer Society, approximately 238,600 new prostate cancer diagnoses will be reported this year, and one out of six men will develop prostate tumors within their lives. Approximately 29,700 men are expected to die of the disease this year.Tc-99m MIP-1404 (developed by Molecular Insight Pharmaceuticals Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Progenics Pharmaceuticals Inc.) is now in a phase II international multicenter study. Further studies and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval are necessary before this radiopharmaceutical could be introduced to general clinical practice for prostate cancer imaging.Scientific Paper 281: Shankar Vallabhajosula, Joseph Osborne, Anastasia Nikolopoulou, Irina Lipai, Scott Tagawa, Douglas Scherr, Stanley Goldsmith; Radiology, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, NY; John Joyal, Thomas Armor, John Babich, Molecular Insight Pharmaceuticals Inc., Cambridge, Mass., “PSMA targeted SPECT imaging biomarker to detect local and metastatic prostate cancer (PCa): Phase I studies with 99mTc-MIP-1404,” SNMMI’s 60th Annual Meeting, June 8–12, 2013, Vancouver, British Columbia.

Realtime motion planning for robots made faster and efficient with RapidPlan processor

first_imgYesterday, Realtime Robotics announced in a guest post in the IEEE spectrum that they have developed a new processor called ‘RapidPlan’ which tackles the bottleneck faced in a robot’s motion planning. Motion planning determines how to move a robot, or autonomous vehicle, from its current position to a desired goal configuration. Although the concept sounds simple, it is far from the same. Not only does the robot have to reach the goal state, but it also has to avoid any obstacles while doing so. According to a study, this process of collision detection- determining which edges in the roadmap (i.e., motions) cannot be used because they will result in a collision-  consumed 99 percent of a motion planner’s computing time. Traditionally, motion planning has been implemented in software running on high-performance commodity hardware. The software implementation, however, causes a multiple second delay, making it impossible to deploy robots in dynamic environments or environments with humans. Such robots can only be used in controlled environments with just a few degrees of freedom. The post suggests that motion planning can be sped up using more hardware resources and software optimizations. However, the vast computational resources of GPUs and sophisticated software maximize performance and consume a large amount of power. They cannot compute more than a few plans per second. Changes in a robot’s task or scenario often require re-tuning the software. How does RapidPlan work? A robot moving from one configuration to another configuration sweeps a volume in 3D space. Collision detection determines if that swept volume collides with any obstacle (or with the robot itself). The surfaces of the swept volume and the obstacles are represented with meshes of polygons. Collision detection comprises of computations to determine whether these polygons intersect. The challenge is titime-consumings each test to determine if two polygons intersect involves cross products, dot products, division, and other computations, and there can be millions of polygons intersection tests to perform. RapidPlan overcomes the above mentioned bottleneck and achieves general-purpose, real-time motion planning, to achieve sub-millisecond motion plans. These processors convert the computational geometry task into a much faster lookup task. At the design time itself, the processors can precompute data that records what part of 3D space these motions collide with, for a large number of motions between configurations. This precomputation— which is offline and based on simulating the motions to determine their swept volumes— is loaded onto the processor to be accessed at runtime. At runtime, the processor receives sensory input that describes what part of the robot’s environment is occupied with obstacles. The processor then uses its precomputed data to eliminate the motions that would collide with these obstacles. Realtime Robotics RapidPlan processor This processor, was developed as part of a research project at Duke University, where researchers found a way to speed up motion planning by three orders of magnitude using one-twentieth the power. Their processor checks for all potential collisions across the robot’s entire range of motion with unprecedented efficiency. RapidPlan, is retargetable, updatable on-the-fly, and has the capacity for tens of millions of edges. Inheriting many of the design principles of the original processor at Duke, the processor has a reconfigurable and more scalable design for the hardware for computing whether a roadmap edge’s motion collides with an obstacle. It has the capacity for extremely large roadmaps and can partition that capacity into several smaller roadmaps in order to switch between them at runtime with negligible delay. Additional roadmaps can also be transferred from off-processor memory on-the-fly allowing the user to, for example, have different roadmaps that correspond to different states of the end effector or for different task types. Robots with fast reaction times can operate safely in an environment with humans. A robot that can plan quickly can be deployed in relatively unstructured factories and adjust to imprecise object locations and orientations. Industries like logistics, manufacturing, health care, agriculture, domestic assistants and the autonomous vehicle industry can benefit from this processor.

53 arrested in soccer hooligan brawl at Costa Ricas National Stadium

The sports daily Al Día reported that some members of La Doce beat and robbed spectators in the stands.The number of arrested fans climbed steadily Sunday, from initial reports of as few as 15 to as many as 53 Monday morning, according to an interview with National Police Director Juan José Andrade on Radio ADN.Andrade avoided taking responsibility for the violence.The police director said that soccer teams are private, for-profit businesses and are responsible for providing security inside the stadium.“It’s obvious that the private security officers contracted did not have a plan to respond” to the outbreak of violence, Andrade said, according to La Nación.Broad Front Party lawmaker and former presidential candidate José María Villalta, who used to belong to La Doce, came down hard on the fan club, saying he left La Doce in 1995 when it became a “violent group.”Chinchilla criticized the stadium’s private security and the strain on officers to police the private sports event. The president wrote that policing sports events comes at “the detriment of public security,” as officers are taken off the streets to patrol the games.Public Security Vice Minister Celso Gamboa tweeted that the problem lies in the use of public resources for private events, and that the soccer teams “consent” to the rowdy fan clubs.last_img read more

New board game challenges your ability to rap

first_imgMy knowledge of rap is about to be put to the test in the Mail’s conference room. Although we are not what you might picture as rapper our little group of journalists can rest assured we are probably pretty safe from the violence that is often associated with the genre breaking out a board game…It’s called Rhyme. Designed by Andonis Mechanikos, a local lawyer and founder of board game company Mechanical Egg Games, it’s the first of a kind; an invention its author describes as creative, rhythmical, hilarious and an antidote to the pressures of his everyday job. “I do have a pretty stressful job,” he grins, “so I needed something positive to balance that out. A couple of years ago, when I was already looking into ideas for a board game, my wife began writing lyrics for rap songs. And the idea just hit me: why not make a game out of rap?”The process, of course, was a little more challenging. A project of this size doesn’t happen overnight, and the premise, design and finished product took time. But today, after extensive playtesting on “friends, family and anyone I could get my hands on!” and huge amounts of feedback, Rhyme is ready to undergo its hardest test to date: a group of world-weary wordsmiths with time on their hands…Having perused the instructions, we’re a little flummoxed. Cards fall into one of 12 categories (some of which are slightly esoteric to say the least: Farm, Sport, and Flora sit alongside Pirate, Spirituality, and Purse!) and potential rappers are challenged to choose three categories at random, opt for one of the three words on each card, and then create a four-line rap containing their designated words. And that’s just the start of the game…The rules run to several pages and cover everything from how to choose a winner (points for finishing first, and also for creating the group’s favourite verse) to where to access the beat (turns out there’s a special website with three speeds of rap beat for download). But though it sounds complicated, we manage to narrow it down to the basics and realise the premise is simple: each of us will write a ‘rap story’ over four rounds of play, every story consisting of four rhyming lines. In essence, we’re going to end up with a loosely styled quatern: 16 lines of rap in total, each verse building on the tale.The catch, of course, is the cards; incorporating the three random words into each verse is no mean feat. Our profile writer is already complaining about ending up with the words ‘shorts’, ‘might’, and ‘leather’ for his very first verse… Nevertheless, we all stick with our chosen three, write them down, and set the timer for the allotted three minutes. We’re journalists; it can’t be that hard, can it? But there’s certainly a lot of head scratching and pencil sucking going on…Turns out that rap is basically poetry, so we’re all okay there. But being able to compose a witty four-line verse doesn’t equate to rapping it out to a beat. As a Winchester-educated girl from Oxfordshire, my accent isn’t doing my rap any favours, and our profiler’s offering is made all the more hysterical by his received pronunciation! Just try rapping the following verse in the Queen’s accent…I wore my tight leather shorts to the party last night,A girl asked ‘Shall we dance?’ and I said ‘Yes, I might!’But the dance got rather lively and I heard an awful tear,And when I looked down, I could see my underwear!In the space of an hour, we’ve all built on our first verse and now have a basic ‘rap story’. We’ve had a massive amount of fun, and discovered that Rhyme is based far more on delivery than content, giving everyone a fighting chance: even if you’re not a wordsmith, you might well be a natural rapper! There’s certainly an advantage if you’re musical (the ability to understand cadence and keep to the beat was a challenge for some), and it helps to have a wide-ranging vocabulary, but I can see this catching on with people of all backgrounds and ages, and being played and enjoyed wherever those with a love of innovation and a penchant for alcohol are gathered!“Everyone who’s tested the game so far has really enjoyed it,” Andonis acknowledges, adding that the game has been a bit of a hit at the three international gaming fairs he’s attended. “The first presentation of Rhyme in May 2016 at the national Greek competition for prototype games. A week on, I took it to the UK Games Expo. And then, in October last year, I took the game to Essen Spiel in Germany where thousands of gamers gather each year to see what’s new on the market.“Everyone seemed to really enjoy the game,” he reveals. “There was great feedback: a lot of excitement and enthusiasm for the concept, with a number of families noting that the game would be great for educational purposes. It made me realise I had something real on my hands, a game I could take all the way….”Having ourselves taken the game all the way to its conclusion (and produced some hilariously unprintable rap stories in the process!), our little group of hacks is definitely on board with the idea. More than the seeming sum of its parts, Rhyme is a game which really is less about the winning than the taking part. By the end of our test session we’re still not sure who’s won, but we’ve certainly had a very jolly rhyming time of it. It’s the kind of thing that will have us giggling for days, and referencing our more scandalous rhymes for months to come. Rappers we’re not, but it transpires we can certainly Rhyme! Roll on the launch…For more information on ‘Rhyme’, visit the Facebook page Rhyme: The Rap Challenge or email Andonis on info@mechanicalegg.com. ‘Rhyme’ is set to launch sometime in the next year.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoYahoo SearchThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
