Moroccan Pilot in Yemen is Alive: Yemeni Source

Rabat – The Moroccan pilot whose F-16 warplane crashed in northern Yemen is reportedly alive and under protection of a Sunni tribe, according to news site Rassd.A lieutenant from the Saudi-led coalition told the Yemeni website that 26-year-old Air Force Lieutenant Yassine Bohti Moroccan is in safe hands with the Hamdan tribes allied to the Arab coalition in Ma’rib.Following the crash of the Moroccan F-16, a special Moroccan commando and a squadron of radar-equipped F-16 warplanes have been reportedly deployed to Yemen to help with the search effort. Brigadier General Ahmed Al-Assiri from the Saudi-led coalition against Houthi rebels in Yemen said on Tuesday that a technical fault or human error might of have caused the crash of the Moroccan F-16 warplane.“We are definitely sure it was not shot down,” Al-Assiri told Agence France Press, adding that the Moroccan pilot was part of a formation and other fighter jets [which] “did not notice any firing from the ground.”The Iran-backed Houthis had claimed responsibility for the “downing” of the Moroccan warplane last weekend in the Saada region in the north of the country.On Monday morning, the Royal Armed Forces said in a statement they had lost track of one of the F-16s made at the disposal of the coalition led by Saudi Arabia to restore the legitimacy in Yemen. read more

Montana Sen Baucus Finance Committee chairman retiring 6th Democrat who is stepping

Montana Sen. Baucus, Finance Committee chairman, retiring; 6th Democrat who is stepping down WASHINGTON – Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus of Montana announced plans Tuesday to retire at the end of his term after a career of enormous power and notable independence, producing both collaboration and conflict with fellow Democrats on major tax and health care legislation.“I don’t want to die here with my boots on. There is life beyond Congress,” the 71-year-old Baucus said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.He became the eighth senator to announce retirement plans for 2014, and the sixth Democrat. One public poll recently suggested he would have faced a difficult challenge if he had sought a seventh term.Republicans must gain six seats in 2014 to win a majority, and they said the retirement enhanced their prospects.Yet Democrats were cheered when former Democratic Gov. Brian Schweitzer, who recently stepped down after two terms, swiftly expressed interest in the race.In a brief statement, President Barack Obama said Baucus “has been a leader on a broad range of issues that touch the lives of Americans across the country.”Sen. Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican and Baucus’ frequent legislative partner, was complimentary, too. “We ran the Finance Committee for 10 years together, and every bill except for three or four was bipartisan,” he said in a statement. “The Senate will be worse off as a deliberative body when Senator Baucus leaves.”In a written statement, Baucus sketched an ambitious agenda for the rest of his term, topped by an overhaul of the tax code.“Our country and our state face enormous challenges – rising debt, a dysfunctional tax code, threats to our outdoor heritage and the need for more good-paying jobs,” he said, adding several Montana-specific priorities as well.Baucus, a fifth-generation Montanan, was elected to the Senate in 1978 after two terms in the House. He became the top Democrat on the Finance Committee in early 2001. He has held the position ever since on the panel — which has jurisdiction over taxes, Medicare, Medicaid, health care and trade — as chairman when his party held a majority and as senior member of the minority when Republicans were in power.The panel has a long tradition of bipartisanship, but Baucus ascended to power in an era of increasing partisanship in Congress.Many Democrats were unhappy when he worked with Republicans to enact the tax cuts that President George W. Bush won in 2001. And then again in 2004 when Congress pushed through a GOP plan to create a new prescription drug benefit under Medicare, a measure that most Democrats opposed as a giveaway to the large drug companies.Baucus stood with fellow Democrats in 2005 when Bush proposed legislation to partially privatize Social Security, an epic battle that ended in defeat for the president’s effort.He played a central role in the enactment of Obama’s watershed health care legislation in 2010, although some inside his party complained that precious momentum was lost while he spent months on bipartisan negotiations that ultimately proved fruitless.More recently, Baucus has expressed opposition to Democratic proposals to use an overhaul of the tax code as a means of raising additional revenue. He was one of four members of his party to oppose the budget the leadership brought to the floor with a requirement to that effect.On other issues large and small, Baucus’ voting record reflected his rural state.Most recently, he voted against legislation that Obama backed to expand background checks for gun purchasers.During the debate on the budget, he was the only Democrat to vote for a proposal to reopen White House tours. Most members of his party viewed the GOP measure as an attempt to embarrass Obama, but it would also have meant more money for clearing snow from the entrances to Yellowstone National Park, a portion of which is in Montana.For more than a decade, Baucus has sought federal assistance for the residents of Libby, Mont., where asbestos contamination from a vermiculite mine has been linked to deaths and illnesses.Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., said he learned of the retirement plans on Monday. He said Baucus told him he wanted to return to Montana, and noted that if he waited until the end of his next term he would be nearly 80.Baucus, in the interview with the AP, said: “Been here 40 years. No regrets. It is time to do something different.”Manoeuvring began almost instantly for the 2014 race.“The opportunity to try and get the country moving again like we did in Montana, that’s appealing,” said Schweitzer, who outpolled Baucus in a hypothetical matchup in the recent poll. “I’m a fixer.”Possible Republican candidates include former Gov. Marc Racicot; former Rep. Denny Rehberg, who lost to Baucus in 1996 and to Tester last fall; former Rep. Rick Hill and Rep. Steve Daines. State Sen. Champ Edmunds of Missoula and former state Sen. Corey Stapleton, had already announced they would run against Baucus.“Montana is a state where Republicans can and will do well,” said Sen. Jerry Moran of Kansas, the GOP campaign committee chairman, pledging to provide the resources needed to turn the seat Republican.The state twice voted against Obama in presidential races. Despite the president’s presence on the ticket in 2012, Tester won a second term in a hotly contested challenge, and another Democrat, Steve Bullock, was elected governor.Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., who heads the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, touted last year’s re-election of Tester and said, “We will continue to invest all the resources necessary to hold this seat.”Democrats will be defending 21 seats next year, compared with 14 for Republicans.Baucus joined Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia, Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey, Tim Johnson of South Dakota, Tom Harkin of Iowa and Carl Levin of Michigan in announcing his retirement plans.Republicans Saxby Chambliss of Georgia and Mike Johanns of Nebraska also have decided not to seek re-election next year.___Gouras reported from Helena.

Security Council urges Lebanese parties to unite and avoid slide into conflict

The Security Council today encouraged all parties in Lebanon to remain united and resist a “slide into conflict,” amid the multiple challenges to the country’s security and stability, including from the crisis in neighbouring Syria, as well as heightened tensions within.“As the impact of the Syria crisis on Lebanon’s stability and security becomes more and more apparent, the Security Council underscores its growing concern at the marked increase of cross-border fire from the Syrian Arab Republic into Lebanon, which caused death and injury among the Lebanese population, as well as incursions, abductions and arms trafficking across the Lebanese-Syrian border,” the 15-member body said in a presidential statement.The Council noted “with deep concern” new developments with regard to the involvement of Lebanese parties in the fighting in Syria, and called on them to recommit to Lebanon’s policy of disassociation, to stand united behind President Michel Sleiman and to step back from any involvement in the Syrian crisis. In his latest report on the implementation of Security Council resolution 1701, which ended the 2006 war between Israel and the Lebanese group Hizbollah, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon noted with concern new developments regarding the involvement of Lebanese citizens in the fighting in the Syria. This includes Hizbollah’s “acknowledged participation in and commitment to such fighting,” threats by external actors to bring their fight to Lebanon in response to Hizbollah’s involvement and calls from inside Lebanon to engage in jihad in Syria, Mr. Ban wrote. “The implications of these developments for Lebanon’s stability, and indeed for the region, are serious,” he warned, urging all concerned parties in Lebanon to step back from involvement in the conflict in Syria.The Council heard a briefing yesterday on the report, as well as the latest developments on the ground, from the UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon, Derek Plumbly. Both Mr. Plumbly and the Council have strongly condemned the terrorist attack that took place yesterday in a Beirut suburb and injured around 50 people, and underlined the need to bring the perpetrators to justice. “In the face of attempts to undermine the country’s stability,” the Council today encouraged all parties in Lebanon to demonstrate renewed unity and determination to resist a “slide into conflict” and commended Mr. Sleiman’s continued efforts in this regard. The Council also condemned recent violence by armed groups across Lebanon, and stressed the need to support the security and judicial authorities in combating impunity. Both the Council and the Secretary-General called on Lebanon’s leaders to work with Prime Minister Tammam Salam to finalize the formation of a Government, which is crucial for addressing the multiple challenges facing the country, including the humanitarian crisis resulting from the influx of refugees from the Syria crisis. Since the start of the Syrian conflict in 2011, over 1.7 million people have fled Syria to neighbouring countries and Lebanon has received the largest number of refugees in the region. There are currently more than half a million refugees from Syria in Lebanon, according to UN estimates. It is estimated that by the end of the year, refugees could make up 20 per cent of Lebanon’s population.“As for the refugee crisis, the Security Council underlines the need for assistance on an unprecedented scale, both to meet the needs of the refugees and of host communities, and to assist the Lebanese authorities who face extraordinary financial and structural challenges as a result of the refugee influx.” read more

Is your face a work of art Google app could tell you

A spokesman for Google said: “This is an experiment that’s only available in parts of the US right now, but we’re glad people are having so much fun matching their selfies to works of art.” Many have dreamed of being compared with the timeless beauty of the Mona Lisa or the Girl With a Pearl Earring.Brave members of the public now have their chance, as long as they are willing to take the risk of being likened to someone altogether less flattering.Google has launched a light-hearted online game, matching modern day faces with their doppelgangers in fine art history. Amanda Seyfried posted her doppelganger, the star of Clewin Harcourt’s One Summer Afternoon, remarking: “It does feel like summer today.”Members of the public posted matches from Henrick Hooft, a 17th century mayor from Amsterdam, to Elvis Presley, captured in a painting in the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery. @McRonalds1 matched with KeyingCredit:Google Arts and Culture @GilMcKinney said of his 50 per cent match with Elvis Presley: “I’ll take it”Credit:Google @McRonalds1 matched with Keying The Google Arts & Culture app compares photographs entered by users with paintings from centuries’ past.Many of those trying it for the first time were left amused as the app matched them with wildly different, though visually similar, portraits, in which they changed gender or aged decades. @GilMcKinney said of his 50 per cent match with Elvis Presley: "I'll take it" Unfortunately those who wish to test their own match in Britain may have some time to wait, as Google confirmed there are no current plans to expand the app from the US.

Rate Cut Effect Govt Banks to Post Higher Treasury Gains Use it

first_imgDue to poor credit offtake, public sector banks (PSBs) have been preferring to invest their deposits in government funds well above the RBI-mandated 22 per cent. Now, to their comfort, the same is set to bring them a windfall, in the form of higher treasury gains.Bankers see the gains as an opportunity to offset higher provisioning for debts, apart from write-offs, which have dented their profit over the last few quarters.It is expected that PSBs would book treasury gains of ₹2,000 crore as the value of their government bond holding is likely to go up this quarter as a consequence of the rate cut.”Banks would like to clean their balance sheet with the help of treasury gains. Higher the provisions, less the worry on the balance sheet front,” said Arundhati Bhattacharya, chairperson of State Bank of India (SBI).It is estimated that PSBs hold 28 percent of their deposits in government bonds.   Bigger PSBs may use the treasury gains to make higher provisions for bad loans, said Rakesh Shinde, research analyst with brokerage firm Bonanza Portfolio. The rate cut is also expected to bring down the debt burden for Indian corporates and ensue a better investment climate.SBI’s Bhattacharya noted that while a 25 basis-point reduction is not too much of a breather, it will still have a material impact on small borrowers and help create a growth-oriented environment. “On the NPA side, slippages have come down, but unless the resolution reaches its logical end, we have to keep providing for loans,” she remarked, read Economic Times.Credit demand has reduced to 10.5% against the 14.5%, a year ago. There is another upside to the rate cut resulting in higher treasury gains: higher earnings would enable PSBs to improve their Tier-1 capital, said analyst Vaibhav Agarwal at broking firm Angel Broking.last_img read more

US terms Myanmar denials of ethnic cleansing as preposterous

first_imgRohingya refugee. Photo: Syful-IslamThe United States on Tuesday described Myanmar denials of ethnic cleansing of Rohingya Muslims as “preposterous” as it called on the UN Security Council to hold the military accountable and pressure leader Aung San Suu Kyi “to acknowledge these horrific acts that are taking place in her country.”“Powerful forces in the Burmese government have denied the ethnic cleansing in Rakhine State,” US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told the Security Council.“To make sure no one contradicts their preposterous denials, they are preventing access to Rakhine to anyone or any organization that might bear witness to their atrocities, including the UN Security Council,” Haley said.Haley also called for the release of Reuters news agency reporters arrested for reporting on the massacre of Rohingya Muslims.“We strongly call for their immediate and unconditional release,” she said. In a reference to Myanmar’s reason for detaining the journalists, Haley added, “On top of it all, they have the gall to blame the media.”The Reuters special report, published last week, lays out events leading up to the killing of 10 Rohingya men from Inn Din village in Rakhine state who were buried in a mass grave after being hacked to death or shot by Buddhist neighbors and soldiers.French UN ambassador Francois Delattre also told the Security council that a massacre of Rohingya Muslims reported by Reuters could “constitute crimes against humanity.”Myanmar has denied that ethnic cleansing has taken place.Any push for UN Security Council action is likely to face resistance from council veto powers Russia and China, who both said on Tuesday the situation in Rakhine state was stable and under control.“Using labels and attempts to use contradictory and subjective reports of the media … to find out who’s guilty and condemn them only move us farther away from a solution,” Russia’s Deputy UN Ambassador Dmitry Polyanskiy warned.Nearly 690,000 Rohingya have fled Rakhine state and crossed into southern Bangladesh since last August, when attacks on security posts by insurgents triggered a military crackdown that the United Nations has said may amount to genocide.“Conditions are not yet conducive to the voluntary repatriation of Rohingya refugees,” UN refugee chief Filippo Grandi told the Security Council.CALLS FOR JOURNALISTS RELEASEWhile Myanmar UN ambassador Hau Do Suan said that some diplomats had been able to travel to Rakhine state but also told the UN Security Council not to visit during February because it was “not the right time,” Kuwait’s UN ambassador Mansour Ayyad Al-Otaibi said this month.Myanmar’s Hau Do Suan said that an inquiry by the Myanmar military, known as the Tatmadaw, had found that 10 Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army militants had been arrested in Inn Din and executed and buried a day later.“Actions are being taken against 16 individuals, including army and police officers and some villagers who had acted in violation of standard operating procedures and the rules of engagement. This action of the Tatmadaw is positive step forward in taking responsibility and deserves encouragement,” he said.With reference to Reuters journalists arrested for reporting on the Rohingya, Hau Do Suan said Myanmar recognizes freedom of the press and the journalists were not arrested in December for reporting a story, but were accused of “illegally possessing confidential government documents.”“Every citizen is bound by the existing law of the land. It is important that the actions of the journalists must also within the bound of the law,” he said.Britain, France, the United States, the Netherlands and Kazakhstan all called for the release of the Reuters journalists during the Security Council meeting on Tuesday.last_img read more

In an effort to provide more detailed data analysis, physicians in the region wanted additional distributed data storage in the screening units and independent access to all data collected. To meet these needs, the Screening Unit of Central Saxony Chemnitz-Erzgebirge worked with Qlik partner Transact GmbH to develop the “MaSc View” application, powered by QlikView Business Discovery.The “MaSc View” solution takes data from multiple sources and consolidates it to allow for various measurements and analytics. The application provides detailed insights on technical recording and analysis parameters, diagnostic quality and documentation, diagnostic evaluation, treatment, findings of the pathologists, accounting data, reports on quality assurance to health insurance companies, and reports on technical discussions. “MaSc View” also enables timely evaluation in the screening units and improves the management of process quality.The solution anonymously merges data collected in the screening process into a common database and allows users to compare it with big data resources from the regional cancer registries. The application includes data on a collection of cases, including information on the intervals and incidences of cancer, and interfaces with PACS (picture archiving and communications systems) as well as “Mammobil,” a mobile mammography unit. Other data that can be accessed by “MaSc View” includes centrally reported statistics from the cancer registry system.”Since the start of our early detection program in Saxony in 2007, 510,840 women have participated in 1,027,415 examinations [as of November 2013],” said Klaus Hamm, M.D., a member of the association of program managers-physicians in Saxony. “As a result, our patients can have a gentler treatment, and our efforts have helped us reduce the proportion of mastectomies to 12 percent. This is a first great success of our detection program and helps improve the quality of life of the women affected. In quality management and process control, the QlikView-based ‘MaSc View’ application enables quick and effective data analyses.”“When it comes to early detection of illness, access to data can make all the difference,” said Ellen Derrico, director of global market development for life sciences and healthcare at Qlik. “The insights from the data will affect the population at large.”For more information: www.qlik.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Ultrasound Women’s Health | July 11, 2019 FDA Clears Koios DS Breast 2.0 AI-based Software Koios Medical announced its second 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). read more Technology | Artificial Intelligence | July 18, 2019 Paragon Biosciences Launches Qlarity Imaging to Advance FDA-cleared AI Breast Cancer Diagnosis System Paragon Biosciences LLC announced the launch of its seventh portfolio company, Qlarity Imaging LLC, which was founded… read more Related Content Technology | Breast Biopsy Systems | July 24, 2019 Fujifilm Releases Tomosynthesis Biopsy Option for Aspire Cristalle Mammography System Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A.

Survey Optimism over Prices Has Sellers Holding Off

first_imgSurvey: Optimism over Prices Has Sellers Holding Off Share in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Confidence Demand Home Prices Home Sales Investors Lenders & Servicers Processing Redfin Service Providers 2013-01-25 Tory Barringercenter_img “”Redfin’s””:http://www.redfin.com/ latest survey of homeowners presented a mixed bag for future inventory, the company reported.[IMAGE]According to Redfin’s latest Real-Time Seller Survey, 81 percent of sellers believe home prices will rise in their area over the next year, up from 75 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012. While the increase in seller confidence should translate to increased inventory, the results have yet to be seen.””Responses to Redfin’s Real-Time Seller Survey present a classic good news/bad news scenario. The good news is that homeowner confidence continues to rise–22 percent of sellers believe now is a good time to sell, up from just 15 percent three months ago–indicating a potential easing of tight inventory in the coming months,”” Redfin analyst Tim Ellis wrote in a “”blog””:http://blog.redfin.com/blog/2013/01/81_of_home_sellers_believe_home_prices_will_continue_to_rise_missing_out_on_future_price_gains_surpasses_the_economy_as_top_concern.html for the company. “”The bad news is that many would-be sellers continue to opt for renting out their homes rather than selling, so any increases in listings are likely to be modest. Even when (or if) more inventory comes, it’s likely to hit later this year [COLUMN_BREAK]than most years, as many sellers have shifted their timelines a few months into the future,”” he continued.According to the survey, 49 percent of respondents indicated they were planning to sell, up from 45 percent in last quarter’s survey. However, the percentage of respondents who indicated they were selling “”right now”” fell by nearly half to 16 percent.Meanwhile, the number of respondents saying now is a good time to buy fell 4 percentage points to 54 percent. For the first time, Redfin asked homeowners not planning to sell to share why. While 68 percent said they were simply happy in their homes, most the remainder indicated they would be willing to sell under different conditions–for example, a combined 12 percent said they were waiting for prices to improve further so they could maximize their gains.When asked about their major concerns with selling, 34 percent answered “”home prices will rise in my area after I sell,”” another indicator that that high optimism for prices is making potential sellers reluctant at the moment. An additional 34 percent said they were “”worried about general economic conditions,”” which was previously the most popular answer.While sellers may currently be reluctant about diving into the market, Ellis expressed confidence that they’ll dip their toes in soon enough.””Almost every sign in this month’s survey points toward more sellers being willing and interested in putting their homes on the market,”” he wrote. “”While that sentiment has not yet translated into an increased number of new listings, there is still hope that the tide will turn over the next few months, easing the frustrations of buyers caused by last year’s tight inventory.”” January 25, 2013 463 Views last_img read more
