The headline trend for bus registrations confirms industry expectations of falling demand.Year-to-date midi-bus registrations are up by 14 per cent. However, registrations of large single-deckers are down 28.9 per cent.

Start the award train Turner Matta take home Big Ten honors

Well before the season started, coach Thad Matta told Evan Turner that he wanted the junior to make the switch from small forward to point guard.The choice to put the ball in Turner’s hands proved to be a monumental decision, as the Buckeyes became Big Ten regular season champions and Turner and Matta both took home postseason honors.In the first of what will likely be many awards for the Ohio State junior, both the media and coaches selected Turner as the Big Ten Player of the Year Monday.“I think it’s a really big deal,” Turner said Monday night on a teleconference. “Most of my awards are state-wide but this is across the Midwest and is against some of the best talent in the country.”Matta was honored by the media as the conference Coach of the Year. Purdue’s Matt Painter earned the honor from the coaches.“We all love playing for [Matta},” Turner said. “He’s a player’s coach and we all have trust and faith in him.”Turner leads the conference with averages of 19.5 points and 9.4 rebounds per game. His 5.8 assists per game rank second in the Big Ten.The Chicago native started the season with a bang, recording just the second triple double in OSU history, with 14 points, 17 rebounds and 10 assists in a 100-60 victory over Alcorn State.Two weeks later, he stuffed another stat sheet, notching 16 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds in an 84-64 win over Lipscomb.But the success came to an abrupt — albeit temporary — end. On a breakaway dunk in the early stages of a blowout victory Dec. 5 against Eastern Michigan, Turner fell to the floor, breaking a pair of vertebrae in his back.Doctors initially predicted that the injury would cost Turner eight weeks, but the resilient junior returned to the court after just five weeks of recovery.During his absence, the Buckeyes fell into the Big Ten cellar. OSU went 3-3 with Turner sidelined, plagued by an ineffective offense.But once the do-it-all guard returned to action, the Buckeyes surged through the home stretch of the season, winning 13 of their last 15 regular season games.With a 73-57 win Mar. 2 over Illinois, the Bucks clinched a share of the Big Ten title.Matta and Turner look to each other for the reasons behind the team’s success this year.“We’re really close. I really look at him for guidance,” Turner said. “He’s coached some great players and he’s taught me how to be a great player. He’s helped me grow up in a number of ways, and I’ll forever appreciate him for that.”Turner is the fifth player in OSU history to win the award. Jim Jackson took home the honor twice.Sophomore William Buford was named Third-Team All-Big Ten by both the coaches and media. Junior David Lighty was selected as a Third-Team All-Big Ten choice by the media and junior Dallas Lauderdale was named to the First-Team All-Big Ten Defensive Team by both the coaches and media.Ohio State earned the No. 1 seed in the Big Ten Tournament, and will play the winner of the Michigan-Iowa game at noon Friday in Indianapolis. read more

They are also in contact with regional and international counterparts to verify the origin of the aircraft.The seized twin engine Beechcraft aircraftOn Sunday, acting on information, a team from Police ‘F’ Division visited the area and discovered a 5,400-foot long; 45-foot wide airstrip that appeared to have undergone recent repairs. This strip had been discovered and destroyed by the GDF only a few years ago. The aircraft landed while the ranks were making their way back to the airstrip. They reported that they saw some persons running into the bush.Inside of the aircraftCrime Chief, Wendell Blanhum, told this publication they are trying to verify the origin of the aircraft and whether any criminal records are associated with the identifying documents found on the aircraft.Although initial reports stated that the illegal twin engine Beechcraft is of Colombian origin, new information has surfaced indicating that it is registered to Brazil’s third largest bank Banco Bradesco.However, the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority said that they have received this information and are working with their Brazilian counterparts to determine whether the plane is indeed registered in that country.The cockpit of the aircraftState Minister Joseph Harmon in a statement late Monday night, said that a team comprising of members from the Guyana Defence Force, the Police Force’s Criminal Investigations Department, the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit, the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) and other related agencies have been deployed to the area to conduct an initial investigation.Harmon noted that this initial assessment is an effort to gather evidence that will assist in the investigation into the circumstances, which led to the aircraft being abandoned on an illegal airstrip.Nevertheless, he noted that Government expects a full investigation into this serious national security issue.According to the ‘F’ Division Commander, Ravindradat Budhram, having received information from an unnamed source that the airstrip was being used, investigating ranks visited the site and were leaving the area when they observed an aircraft circling some distance away. The aircraft landed while the ranks were making their way back to the airstrip. They reported that they saw some persons running into the bush.Following the discovery of the plane, an extensive search was mounted by a Joint Services team for the men, who had been observed fleeing, and the search continues.Budhram noted that a search of the area unearthed three abandoned camps, in which canned food and other items were found. Additionally, 16 10-gallon containers, which are suspected to have contained aviation fuel, were also discovered. During the search of the aircraft, several pieces of communication equipment, including cellular phones, flashlights, a quantity of dried ration, medical supplies and an identification card were discovered.The government said that because of the vast land and airspace, Guyana is particularly vulnerable to transnational security threats and that they are working with both local and international partners to build capacity and strengthen security as it relates to monitoring the airspace and landmass.Meanwhile, investigations are ongoing, and the aircraft is said to have suffered some mechanical difficulties.The GCAA is working to repair that and have it flown to the city.

Why 600 people will be at a soldout event in Dublin today

first_img Looking forward to hearing Thomas #Piketty speak tomorrow at the @TASCblog conference in Dublin. Excellent treatment by #rtept tonight— Dónall Geoghegan (@DonallGeoghegan) June 19, 2014 WITH ALL DUE respect to the ‘dismal science’, it’s not too often that you find an economist who gets people this excited.Later today, more than 600 people will cram into a sold-out event in Dublin to listen to what Thomas Piketty has to say. It comes just days after he had people queuing around the block in London to hang on his every word and bringing copies of his book to sign  – something that has been happening in every city he has visited on his book tour. I am seeing Thomas Piketty speak tomorrow in Dublin!— Heber Rowan (@HeberRowan) June 19, 2014 Source: Dónall Geoghegan/Twitter Piketty is part of a new breed of academics who don’t just write about their research and then hand it over to policy exerts and politicians to actually implement ideas. Instead, in the same way that the authors of books like The Spirit Level were prescriptive about what needs to be done next, Piketty is strident about what capitalist economies should do.He recommends a global tax on money that people have inherited from their families, saying that there should be an 80% tax on incomes above $500,000, a 15% tax on capital, and enforced transparency for all bank transactions.Sound compelling? It’s definitely kicked off a lot of arguments. While some of the policies that he argues for – including the wealth tax – have already been brushed aside by the Irish government, he’s likely to have a lot to say about what could or should be done about inequality in Irish society.If you want to hang around outside – all the seats sold out ages ago – Piketty will be giving the keynote address at the annual conference of Tasc, the social policy think-tank, at the Croke Park conference centre later today, followed by a response from Central Bank governor Patrick Honohan and a discussion with the audience.FACTFILE Source: Paris School of EconomicsName: Thomas PikettyBorn: 7 May 1971 in Clichy in France.Job: Professor of Economics at the Paris School of EconomicsEducation: He has a Masters in mathematics from the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris and PhD in economics from the LSE and EHESS.Most likely to say: “The distribution of wealth is one of today’s most widely discussed and controversial issues. But what do we really know about its evolution over the long term?” (Capital, page 1).Least likely to say: “If you work hard, you’ll definitely be able to make lots and lots of money. Long live the American Dream”.Stay tuned later on when we’ll be covering Piketty’s speech at the Tasc conference and the response from Patrick Honohan. Read: Ireland is split between people who have good jobs – and people who don’t >center_img The fact that rich kids can swan aimlessly from gap year to internship to a job at [their] father’s bank/ministry/TV network – while the poor kids sweat into their barista uniforms – is not an accident. It is the system working normally.Piketty’s neatly-researched and engagingly-written book has captured public attention and become a major talking point. Mason points out that much of the book is spent “marshalling the evidence that 21st-century capitalism is on a one-way journey towards inequality – unless we do something”. Source: Seth Anderson via Flickr/Creative CommonsOn the left, commentators love him for pointing out this inherent unfairness in modern capitalism. On the right, criticism has focused on his methodology and his conclusions.In a piece in the New York Times, Thomas B Edsall covered some of the criticisms, noting:It’s not only the right that is disturbed; there is also opposition among a number of progressive activists and liberal policy analysts who recognise the dangers Piketty’s analysis poses to their agenda. In the space of just a few months, Piketty has gone from working at his day job as a  lecturer at the Paris School of Economics to the economics equivalent of a break-out star (it has already been described as ‘Piketty mania’ by the British media).So what happened? Piketty’s book, the deceptively-excitingly-titled Capital In the Twenty-First Century, is the 696-page tome which has been hovering around the top of bestseller lists since it was published earlier this year.In it, Piketty argues that inherited wealth is always going to grow faster than wealth that is earned through work. In other words, that inequality is a built-in part of capitalism and the richest people in the world – the top 1 per cent – are always going to keep getting richer.Or, as Channel 4 News journalist Paul Mason put it: Source: Heber Rowan/Twitterlast_img read more

Fox 5 thinks iPhone 5 has a laser keyboard holographic projection

first_imgIn the run up to the launch of the iPhone 5 lots of rumors were flying around about the feature-set of the device. Most of them turned out to be true, with few surprises at the actual launch event. But some rumors were just totally ridiculous, like the suggestion Apple would be incorporating holographic projection and a laser keyboard in their new smartphone.We may have dismissed such features without a second thought, but Fox 5 did not. During a feature on how many people are lining up outside Apple Stores this week in order to get an iPhone 5 first, Fox decided to recap some of the cool features we can all expect to be using on the new Apple device.What followed was some well-made, yet completely fake video of an iPhone with a working laser keyboard and the ability to display holographic images in mid-air. The “sleeker” iPhone they held up was so thin it probably made Jony Ive a bit jealous if he was watching.The footage Fox used is actually a year old and the original video can be seen below:Someone at Fox 5 either has no idea about current technology and what a smartphone is capable of, or this was a joke that made it on to live television and the repercussions are now being felt. However, I’d like to think no one at Fox actually realized anything was wrong with this segment and pre-orders have been placed by staff working there because they want to play with lasers and watch holograms.last_img read more

Scientists Study Fossilized Bird With Extremely Long Toe

first_img Nature never ceases to amaze: For its latest trick, researchers discovered a 99-million-year-old bird with toes longer than its lower legs.The feathered creature, preserved in amber, likely used its hyper-elongated third toe to hook food out of tree trunks.This is the first time such a foot structure—detailed in a paper published by the journal Current Biology—has been observed in birds, living or extinct.“I was very surprised when I saw the amber,” study author Lida Xing of the China University of Geosciences said in a statement. “It shows that ancient birds were way more diverse than we thought. They had evolved many different features to adapt to their environments.”Without removing the Cretaceous-era fossil from its casing, Xing & Co. scanned the amber with micro-CT and created a 3D reconstruction of the foot.It turns out the bird’s third toe, measuring 9.8 millimeters, is 41 percent longer than its second toe, and 20 percent longer than its tarsometatarsus—the bone in the lower leg of birds.The team compared those ratios with 20 other extinct fowl from the same period, as well as 62 living birds. None had a foot that resembles the just-named Elektorornis chenguangi.A nearly 100-million-year-old bird foot, featuring a very long toe preserved in amber (via Lida Xing/China University of Geosciences)The “amber bird” apparently belongs to a group of extinct creatures called Enantiornithes—once abundant during the Mesozoic era. It is thought that these birds became extinct along with the dinosaurs some 66 million years ago. They have no living descendants.Smaller than a sparrow, the Elektorornis likely spent most of its time in trees, as opposed to on the ground or in water.“Elongated toes are something you commonly see in arboreal animals because they need to be able to grip these branches and wrap their toes around them,” according to co-author Jingmai O’Connor of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. “But this extreme difference in toe lengths, as far as we know, has never been seen before.”The fossilized tree resin in which the foot was protected comes from the Hukawng Valley in Myanmar. Xing obtained it from a local ambert trader.Scientists remain stumped as to why the amber bird evolved such an unusual feature. The only known animal with disproportionately long digits is the aye-aye—a lemur that uses long middle fingers to fish larvae and insects out of tree trunks. The team believes Elektorornis may have used its toe for the same purpose.“This is the best guess we have,” O’Connor said. “A lot of ancient birds were probably doing completely different things that living birds. This fossil exposes a different ecological niche that these early birds were experimenting [with] as they evolved.”Moving forward, researchers hopes to extract proteins and pigments from exposed features peeking out from the amber. Such data could help shine a light on the bird’s evolutionary adaptations.More on Geek.com:Orphaned Baby Bird Gets Solo Uber Ride to Utah Rehab Center‘Exotic’ Bird Turns Out to Be Curry-Covered SeagullSecret Chamber Discovered in Roman Emperor Nero’s Palace Egg Fossils Provide Glimpse Into Prehistoric ParentingBoy Uncovers Rare Woolly Mammoth Tooth Outside Ohio Resort Stay on targetlast_img read more

The technology enables automatic calculation of organ dose, helping the clinician to better estimate the radiation exposure to the patient. The automatic calculation reduces the time needed to perform assessments for large numbers of patients, enabling epidemiologic and dose trend analysis studies. “This technology assesses organ doses in patients undergoing CT in an examination-specific manner, where granular dose estimates are precisely informed by the patient anatomy and the exact irradiation condition,” said Ehsan Samei, a professor of radiology, physics and biomedical engineering at Duke, who led development of the tool. “The technology includes a realistic estimation of variability associated with the dose estimates, raising the confidence in the reported values.”The technology will be incorporated into an organ dose module within GE’s DoseWatch, a digital informatics solution that automatically collects, monitors and reports on radiation dose indices for diagnostic imaging exams. DoseWatch is used by healthcare providers around the world to reduce variation in practice, help ensure patient safety, and drive compliance with government regulations and accreditation requirements. DoseWatch will provide the CT study acquisition information for the organ dose calculation, as well as the machine-learning technology to accurately match a patient with his or her electronic counterpart.Duke’s technology employs a unique convolution-based approach to organ dose and leverages the XCAT phantom library, a collection of more than 400 highly detailed computational phantoms for adult men, women, pediatric and pregnant patients. The XCAT library is referenced in over 100 peer-reviewed articles.Duke has published previously on the convolution-based estimation of organ dose. GE and Duke presented jointly at the 2016 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting on a generalized framework for organ dose monitoring for CT.For more information: www.gehealthcare.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 07, 2019 VIDEO: Walk Around of a Siemens Go.Top Dedicated Cardiac Scanner This is a quick walk around of the new Siemens Somatom Go.top cardiovascular edition compact computed tomography (CT) read more Videos | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 07, 2019 VIDEO: Walk Around of a GE Cardiographe Dedicated Cardiac CT Scanner This is a quick walk around of the GE Healthcare Cardiographe dedicated cardiac CT system on display at the… read more Siemens Go.Top CT scanner at SCCT19Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:05Loaded: 15.14%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:05 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Showing another face of Hong Kong the Hong Kong T

first_imgShowing another face of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) has launched its latest campaign – Hong Kong’s Great Outdoors – aimed at encouraging Aussies to don their active gear and set out to explore a more organic side of the city, one that is far removed from its buzzing urban centre.HKTB regional director Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific, Andrew Clark said Aussies have always held a strong affection for Hong Kong but they often get caught up in the buzz and don’t explore beyond the central areas. “We really wanted to show how much more there is on offer in Hong Kong and also how easy it is to reach. Just a taxi or MTR ride away, the green rolling hills, quaint beaches and scenic villages quickly replace the bustling urban areas. It’s a great day out for couples, friends or families.”To show visitors just what they are missing out on, the HKTB has recruited a handful of local photographers, including: Landscape photographer and a Hong Kong National Geographic 2013 photography winner, Will ChoVeteran outdoor sports photographer, Elvis MoNature Conservancy 2017 photography winner, Jessica LiRenowned photographer, Romain Jacquet Lagreze, best-known for his “Vertical Horizon” photo series, showcasing the geometric lines of Hong Kong… to capture Hong Kong’s off-the-radar landscapes through the lens. The results are featured in HKTB’s newly published guidebook “Your Guide to Hiking & Cycling in Hong Kong”. The guidebook is available from visitor centres around the city, or as an e-version, and is divided into three different themes: Hiking in Heritage; Picture-Perfect Vistas; and Geological Wonders, with each section detailing suggested trails, along with the estimated time required and difficulty levels. Visitors are free to escape the hustle and bustle of the city at their own leisure and discover the surrounding beauty whether it be spectacular cityscapes; remote beaches; rustic villages; serene islands; or historical and cultural landmarks. The guidebook also features cycling trails for those who are keen to explore at a slightly faster speed. cyclinghikingHong Kongoutdoorphotographylast_img read more
