BCCI to use limited DRS in Ranji Trophy knockouts

first_imgNew Delhi: The BCCI has decided to use “limited DRS” during the Ranji Trophy knockout matches from this season in a bid to cut down on umpiring howlers that grabbed headlines during previous seasons. The DRS version to be used during the domestic tournament will not comprise Hawk-Eye and UltraEdge, the two key elements of the system used in international cricket. A lot of controversial decisions were taken by on-field umpires during the Ranji Trophy last season, including the semi-final between Karnataka and Saurashtra in Bengaluru, and BCCI’s general manager of cricket, Saba Karim said it is important to avoid such howlers in future. Also Read – Andy Murray to make Grand Slam return at Australian Open”Last year, in some of the knockout matches, there was some flak on umpires because there were some terrible howlers,” Karim told ESPNcricinfo. “So we want to avoid all that and use whatever help we can get. For the knockouts in Ranji Trophy matches, we will utilise all the technology available to us as a means to apply the limited DRS to help the on-field umpires make the correct decision.” Multiple umpiring errors had marred the Ranji semifinals with Cheteshwar Pujara being let off twice – once in each innings.

Captains and coaches later called for the introduction of DRS in Ranji Trophy games during a Conclave in Mumbai last May. Committee of Administrators (CoA) then approved the decision to implement this limited version of the DRS in June. Karim said there will be a “brainstorming session” with match officials, including umpires and referees, and the board’s broadcasting team to find a way implement the available technology. “We are just trying to use it as an experiment just to see how much it can be useful to domestic cricket. We will use whatever cameras we can use to come to the right decision,” he said.last_img read more

Alyson Hannigan Joins Smiling It Forward Campaign

first_imgInspired by the heartwarming smile of a child, and the millions of photos that moms proudly post online of their children every day, the TYLENOL brand’s SMILING IT FORWARD campaign is a simple way to share those adorable, smiling photos for a good cause.Alyson Hannigan is Smiling It ForwardThe power of SMILING IT FORWARD was set in motion this week by How I Met Your Mother star and social media mother of two, Alyson Hannigan. By sharing the first “smile” of her two daughters Satyana, 4, and Keeva, 1, Hannigan triggered the first donation from TYLENOL to Children’s Health Fund, an organization well-known for its mobile medical clinics that provide healthcare services to underserved children throughout the U.S. Now, until mid-January, moms across the country can join in by sharing their own smiles at SmilingItForward.com, prompting TYLENOL to make a $1 donation to Children’s Health Fund, up to $100,000, helping to ensure a doctor’s visit is always within reach for children in need.Video: SMILING IT FORWARD™with TYLENOL®“Being a mom has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life,” said Hannigan. “And being the first mom of many to participate in SMILING IT FORWARD warms my heart because it will help other children receive high-quality medical care like my daughters do.”“When Keeva is up at night teething, or Satyana is fussy with a fever, it’s pediatric TYLENOL products I rely on to relieve their symptoms,” continued Hannigan. “And when those smiles return to their faces, it’s the best signal I have that they are starting to feel better. I live for that smile, so I am honored to be a part of a campaign to bring more smiles to children across the country.”In fact, a recent survey conducted on behalf of the makers of TYLENOL discovered that 89% of moms with young children agree that there is nothing better than their child’s smile to let them know they are feeling better after a fever, cold or flu.For more than 50 years, the makers of TYLENOL have been helping to bring “feel better” smiles to generations of children. Through SMILING IT FORWARD, TYLENOL aims to garner 100,000 smiles in order to help the 85,000 low-income urban and rural children who are served by Children’s Health Fund each year.“We thank Alyson, TYLENOL and everyone who participates by SMILING IT FORWARD for helping to raise donations for Children’s Health Fund. Their support will help to ensure that the children of Children’s Health Fund will have a chance to be healthy, ready to learn and fulfill their potential,” said Karen Redlener, Executive Director of Children’s Health Fund.Source:Multivu.comlast_img read more

Some progress made as contract talks resume between GM and striking workers

first_imgTORONTO – Bargaining talks have resumed between General Motors and more than 2,500 striking workers at a southern Ontario automotive assembly plant.Negotiations initially broke down shortly after the employees of the CAMI plant in Ingersoll, Ont., walked off the job on Sept. 17, but union officials say both sides returned to the table on Tuesday.Dan Borthwick, president of Unifor Local 88 representing the workers, declined to discuss the issues currently being hashed out or indicate how the talks are proceeding.A previously issued statement said “some progress” had been made since the union submitted a detailed proposal on the weekend, but Borthwick said he could not comment further while talks were underway.“We’re sitting with the company having further discussions trying to resolve our outstanding issues to end the labour dispute,” he said in a telephone interview on Wednesday.Borthwick also declined to expand on the contents of Unifor’s proposal to the automaker, other than to say it focused on three long-standing issues — job security, economic concerns and contract language.The union has argued the CAMI plant should be designated as the lead producer of the Chevrolet Equinox sport utility vehicle, currently the only product built at the facility.The plant already sustained a loss of more than 400 jobs when GM shifted production of its Terrain SUV from Ingersoll to Mexico earlier this year.The issue of job security, and its impact on plants like the one in Ingersoll, has been raised at another high-profile bargaining table in recent days.The exodus of automotive jobs from Canada and the U.S. to Mexico has prompted Canada to address the subject as part of its labour standards proposal during efforts to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement.Canada wants enforceable, progressive labour standards to be included in a rewritten NAFTA that would force Mexico to pay workers higher wages and do away with so-called “yellow” unions that represent employers rather than employees.Minimum wage in the Mexican automotive sector currently stands at 65 cents per hour, a situation that has caused alarm among Canadian and U.S. officials as manufacturers relocate their operations, taking quality jobs and investment dollars with them.Unifor has said Canada should walk away from the NAFTA negotiations entirely if it can’t make headway on the issue.The 10-day old CAMI strike has already had a ripple effect on other Canadian companies.Days after work stopped at the plant, General Motors laid off at least 255 of the 350 workers at its facility in neighbouring St. Catharines, Ont., which supplies about 90 per cent of the transmissions used at CAMI.Additionally, auto parts maker Magna International (TSX:MG) announced it would stop supplying components to the CAMI plant, a decision it said would affect output at a few of its facilities in Ontario. The company did not provide further details.last_img read more

Stronger hiring adds 236000 jobs and reduces unemployment to 77 pct a

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Christopher S. Rugaber, The Associated Press Posted Mar 8, 2013 8:31 am MDT Stronger hiring adds 236,000 jobs and reduces unemployment to 7.7 pct., a 4-year low WASHINGTON – The American job market isn’t just growing. It’s accelerating.Employers added 236,000 jobs in February and drove down the unemployment rate to 7.7 per cent, its lowest level in more than four years. The gains signal that companies are confident enough in the economy to intensify hiring even in the face of tax increases and government spending cuts.Last month capped a fourth-month hiring spree in which employers have added an average of 205,000 jobs a month. The hiring has been fueled by steady improvement in housing, auto sales, manufacturing and corporate profits, along with record-low borrowing rates.Before the spree, employers added an average of 154,000 jobs from July through October and only 108,000 from April through June.“The recovery is gathering momentum,” Paul Ashworth, an economist at Capital Economics, said in a note to clients.The gains could boost consumer spending, adding momentum to the U.S. recovery and helping troubled economies in Europe and Asia.The U.S. economy is forecast to grow a modest 2 per cent this year. Growth will likely be held back by uncertainty about the federal budget, higher Social Security taxes and across-the-board government spending cuts that kicked in March 1. And unemployment remains high nearly four years after the end of the Great Recession. Roughly 12 million people remain out of work.The unemployment rate declined in February from 7.9 per cent in January mostly because more people found work. Another factor was that 130,000 people without jobs stopped looking for work last month. The government doesn’t count them as unemployed.The last time unemployment was lower was December 2008, when it was 7.3 per cent.The unemployment rate is calculated from a survey of households. The number of jobs gained is derived from a separate survey of employers.Hiring would be rising even faster if governments weren’t shrinking their workforces, as they have been for nearly four years. Governments cut 10,000 jobs in February.Some $44 billion in spending cuts kicked in last week after Congress failed to reach a budget deal. The cuts are expected to shave about a half-point from economic growth this year and lower total hiring by about 30,000 jobs a month from April through September, according to Moody’s Analytics.And most workers have had to absorb higher Social Security taxes this year. Someone earning $50,000 has about $1,000 less to spend in 2013. A household with two high-paid workers has up to $4,500 less.Stock prices rose after the report was released and strengthened later in the day. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 67 points to 14,397, its fourth straight record close.Robust auto sales and a steady housing recovery are spurring more hiring, which will trigger more consumer spending and could lead to stronger economic growth. The construction industry added 48,000 jobs in February; it’s added 151,000 since September. Manufacturing gained 14,000 jobs last month and 39,000 since November.Among industry categories, the biggest job growth in February was in professional and business services, which added 73,000. This category includes higher-paying jobs in accounting, engineering and information technology as well as temporary positions that typically pay less.Retailers added 24,000 jobs. Education and health services gained 24,000. And the information industry, which includes publishing, telecommunications and film, added 20,000, mostly in the movie industry.The economy is generating more higher-paying jobs. That trend is raising average pay, which will help offset the hit that Americans took from higher Social Security taxes and gas prices.Hourly wages rose 4 cents to $23.82 last month. Wages have risen 2.1 per cent over the past year, slightly ahead of inflation. Higher pay is vital to the economy because consumer spending drives 70 per cent of economic activity.Hotel chain Cambria Suites expects business travel to rise 5 per cent this year and next. Cambria, a unit of Choice Hotels International, is building nearly 20 hotels around the country, doubling its total. It plans to add 110 jobs this year and 400 next year to its workforce of 600.The improved job market can also benefit countries that sell goods and services to U.S. consumers and businesses.“All you have to do is look at the trade numbers,” says Bernard Baumohl, chief global economist at the Economic Outlook Group. “The strength in the U.S. economy is leading to faster growth in imports.”Imports rose 2 per cent in January from December. Those from China surged 7 per cent.A stronger U.S. economy, Baumohl says, will also help a battered Europe, which is contending with high unemployment and a debt crisis. The United States is the No. 1 market for exports from the 27-country European Union.“The extent to which the U.S. is recovering and potentially the labour market is improving is potentially an important dynamic that Europe would welcome,” said Nick Matthews, an economist at Nomura in London.The U.S. economy is benefiting from the Federal Reserve’s drive to keep interest rates at record lows. Lower borrowing rates have made it easier for Americans to buy homes and cars and for companies to expand.The Fed and key central banks overseas have taken extraordinary steps to pump money into their financial systems to try to spur borrowing and spending, boost stock prices and stimulate growth.The Fed has said it plans to keep the benchmark rate it controls near zero at least until the unemployment rate has fallen to 6.5 per cent, as long as the inflation outlook remains mild.Friday’s jobs report isn’t expected to move up the Fed’s timetable for any rate increase.The brighter hiring picture has yet to cause a flood of out-of-work people who aren’t looking for a job to start seeking one. The proportion of Americans either working or looking for work dipped one-tenth of a percentage point in February to 63.5 per cent, matching a 30-year low.Even though the recession officially ended in June 2009, many Americans have remained discouraged about their job prospects and have given up looking. Others have returned to, or stayed in, school. And the vast generation of baby boomers has begun to retire; the oldest are now 67. Their exodus reduces the percentage of adults working or looking for work.The pickup in hiring hasn’t yet benefited the long-term unemployed. Nearly 4.8 million Americans have been out of work for six months or longer, nearly 100,000 more than in January.Further strong hiring gains will hinge, in part, on healthy consumer spending. So far, higher gas prices and a Jan. 1 increase in Social Security taxes haven’t caused Americans to sharply cut back on spending. But if the economy can continue to add 200,000 or more jobs a month, it means that many more people will have disposable income to spend.A big source of strength has been home sales and residential construction: New-home sales jumped 16 per cent in January to the highest level since July 2008. And builders started work on the most homes last year since 2008.The year-over-year increase in home prices in January was the biggest in six years. Higher prices tend to make homeowners feel wealthier and more likely to spend. So do record-high stock prices.“If my house is worth a little more, my 401(k) is going up … maybe I can afford to go buy that car, or continue to spend,” says Ed Hyland, investment specialist at JPMorgan Private Bank.___AP Business Writers Paul Wiseman in Washington and David McHugh in Frankfurt, Germany, contributed to this report.___Follow Chris Rugaber at http://Twitter.com/ChrisRugaber read more

PGM mining Murray Roberts Cementation to develop Booysendal South Central Complex

first_imgMurray & Roberts Cementation has been awarded the Phase 1 contract for the establishment of a new mine for Northam Platinum. The Booysendal South Central Complex will be established on the same mining lease as Booysendal platinum mine, which is situated in Mpumalanga Province.Allan Widlake, New Business Executive at Murray & Roberts Cementation, says that the contract, due to start in April 2017, is to develop an access decline system which will be established in Phase 1 of the project. Significantly, trackless mining methods will be employed on the access development with LHD tramming to remove the waste rock and ore until the conveyor systems are established and commissioned.This leading underground mining contractor will then mine the access decline system, initially inclining to the reef intersection and then declining down through the UG2 reef footwall to continue as on-reef declines to provide access to Phase 2 stoping activities. A standalone ventilation adit, initially driven on reef and then turning as a strike vent drive, will be developed to intersect the nearest decline.“Murray & Roberts Cementation is currently the main contractor operating Booysendal North mine, mining both the UG2 and the Merensky orebodies, and we are extremely proud that we will continue to be associated with Northam Platinum in this way and we will continue to build a sustainable relationship with Northam,” Widlake says.“The Murray & Roberts Cementation team will apply all lessons learnt from the North Mine in developing the new access decline system as quickly as possible, however as always safety remains a top priority,” he concludes.The Booysendal mining right is located within the southern compartment of the eastern limb of the Bushveld Complex, some 35km from the town of Mashishing (formerly Lydenburg), straddling the border of Limpopo and Mpumalanga provinces in South Africa.The property hosts the PGM-bearing UG2 and Merensky orebodies, both outcropping along an extensive strike length. The characteristics of these orebodies allow a mechanised mining approach, with relatively shallow underground mining operations, developed in a modular fashion.The total extent of the Booysendal mi ning right is 17, 986 ha; strike length 14.5 km. The total resource is in excess of 105 Moz 4E PGM. Steady state production rate of 160 000 oz was reached in October 2015. This was followed shortly thereafter by a production expansion project known as the UG2 North mine deepening project, anticipated to yield an additional 30,000 oz by 2018.The Booysendal South mine initially comprises the development of two UG2 and one Merensky mining modules producing 215,000 oz by 2021.last_img read more

Beer was Key Ingredient in the Rise of Modern Civilization

first_imgBeer. Not only is it the facilitator of softball leagues, awkward first dates, and televised sports, but it also may have played an integral role in the development of human civilization. As early man transitioned from nomadic hunter-gatherer to an agriculture-based species, a large bulk of their early crops consisted of grains. But current research suggests that only small amounts of these crops were used for consumption as food. The bulk were probably allotted for fermenting into early incarnations of beer.AdChoices广告So, the theory goes, the development of agriculture owes its existence to the human desire to get a buzz on.“Signs that people went to great lengths to obtain grainsdespite the hard work needed to make them edible, plus the knowledge thatfeasts were important community-building gatherings, support the idea thatcereal grains were being turned into beer,” archaeologist Brian Hayden at Simon Fraser University in Canada told livescience. “Beer is sacred stuff in most traditionalsocieties.”As human domestication developed, various groups and tribes would have settled in close proximity. Whereas nomadic groups could learn to avoid each other, alcohol might have served an important function in easing tensions of early peoples adapting to this new concept of “neighbors.” This brew-fueled social bonding would serve a far more important use for grain cultivation than the creation of bread.Researchers believe that the prehistoric peoples of Syria, for example, would travel up to 60 miles just to procure grains needed in theproduction of alcohol. People would likely not put forth the effort for mere bread or rice. According to Hayden’s research, fermentation seems irrevocably linked with early human civilizations throughout the world including in China, the Sudan, Greece, and possibly the first use of maize.So, drink up. It’s what your ancestors would have wanted.last_img read more

FPI divests Rs 7712 crore from Indian equity market shows disinterest after

first_imgReutersThe foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) have taken a step back in their investments by withdrawing about Rs 7,712 crore from their stake in the Indian market. The investors started divesting in Indian companies after Nirmala Sitharaman announced the ‘super-rich’ tax in her Budget 2019-20.According to The Economic Times, the net investment in the capital market by the FPIs was about Rs 1,659 crore in July. The report adds that the positive net investment is because of the FPIs pumping in about Rs 9,371 crore in the debt segment at the same time when there was a massive withdrawal in July. Representational Image.ReutersFPIs have shown sudden displeasure in the Indian market which had been major investors in the equity segment for the past five months. “FPIs have been on a selling spree ever since the government proposed ‘super-rich’ tax in its budget and with no respite in sight from the government, the quantum of net outflows shot up,” said Himanshu Srivastava, senior analyst manager research at Morningstar.The liquidity crisis in the country, tepid earning season, slower pace of GDP growth, irregular monsoon and the Asian Development Bank’s forecast on the lowering growth are the other reasons that have created unfavourable conditions for the FPIs to invest in the Indian markets.Some of the other reasons for the investment lags are related to the international tension between US-Iran which is creating global disruption in liquidity flow.

Patrick Jankoswki with the Greater Houston Partnership says car dealerships should do well, for example.“The local dealer should see some pickup in their activity, and we’ll also see some pickup activity (in) dealerships outside the area. There’s just difficulty in fiding the number of vehicles and type of vehicles.”One of the concerns is for people who work hourly.“They lost their chance to earn money those two weeks. People who are salaried continued to get paid even though the offices weren’t open or people were working from home.”Timing of the economic rebound largely depends on when people receive and cash their insurance and FEMA and grant checks.“They’re gonna take that money and they’re gonna spend it in the economy, but those checks won’t come all at once so Houston will see the impact on retail sales for several months, and it’ll probably start to settle out sometime after the first of the year.”The Houston economy had been on the mend, but Jankowski says the storm only set things back probably just by a month or two. 00:00 /01:02 X Sharelast_img read more

Sugar Land Bishop Fighting to End Youth Interviews Ousted from Mormon Church

first_imgRick Bowmer/APSam Young speaks during a press conference Sunday, Sept. 16, 2018, in Salt Lake City. Young, a Mormon man who led a campaign criticizing the church’s practice of allowing closed-door, one-on-one interviews of youth by lay leaders has been kicked out of the faith. Young read a verdict letter for the first time Sunday that had been delivered to him following an earlier disciplinary hearing with local church leaders in Houston. Young, a 65-year-old lifelong Mormon, becomes the third high-profile member of the faith who led protests about church policy to be excommunicated in recent years.SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Mormon man who led a campaign criticizing the church’s practice of allowing closed-door, one-on-one interviews of youth by lay leaders that sometimes included sexual questions has been kicked out of the faith following a disciplinary hearing.Sam Young read a verdict letter for the first time Sunday that had been delivered to him following last week’s hearing with local church leaders in Houston.Young and his supporters say the interviews where youth are asked if they’re following the law of chastity led to inappropriate conversations and shaming.Young called his excommunication “a supreme disappointment” and was emotional at a news conference attended by about 100 of his supporters.“The whistleblower has been kicked out,” he said. “But they have no power to excommunicate me from the cause of protecting children and protecting the healing of my friends. For our children’s sake, this whistleblower is not going to stop roaring.”Young, 65, recently finished a 23-day hunger strike in Salt Lake City near church headquarters to bring attention to his cause. In March, he organized a protest march of about 1,000 people who walked to church headquarters.The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints doesn’t comment on disciplinary hearings to respect people’s privacy.While not a lifelong ban, excommunication is a rare move that amounts to the harshest punishment available for a church member.Young becomes the third high-profile Mormon who led protests about church policy to be excommunicated in recent years.Kate Kelly, founder of a group pushing for women to be allowed in the religion’s lay clergy, was excommunicated in 2014. John Dehlin, who runs a podcast that allows doubting Mormons to tell their stories, was kicked out in 2015.In his summons to the disciplinary hearing, church leaders told Young he was facing excommunication because he encouraged others to vote against church leaders and because he organized more than one public action that expressed opposition.The youth interviews usually happen twice a year starting at 12. One of the questions asked by men who are called bishops deals with sexual activity: “Do you live the law of chastity?”Young and the Mormons and non-Mormons who back his campaign say the question is unnecessary and inappropriate.The church changed its policy earlier this year to allow children to bring a parent or adult with them. Parents were only allowed in a hallway or adjacent room under old rules. Youth can still go in alone if they choose.In June, the faith, for the first time, posted the list of questions lay leaders are supposed to ask during the interviews.Mormon leaders say the interviews are an important way for bishops to get to know youth better and determine their religious habits and obedience to God.Young’s ouster means he’ll be leaving a religion he’s been a member of his entire life. Mormons usually have tight-knit connections with other people in their congregations, bonds forged by spending worship and social time together.Excommunicated Mormons and those not in good standing can’t go inside temples where members are married and other ordinances such as baptisms for dead relatives are performed.

PS Vita TV lets you play Vita games on a TV with

first_imgAlongside announcing a thinner and lighter PS Vita today in Japan, Sony has unveiled a rather unusual little box they are calling the PS Vita TV.It measures just 10 x 6cm in size and is around the same size as a deck of cards. It is equipped with an Ethernet port, HDMI-out, PS Vita card slot, and memory card slot, and aims to be a multi-function device that interacts with both your PS Vita and PS4, but can also be used alone with a DualShock controller.Probably the coolest feature it offers is the ability to play PS Vita games on your TV using a DualShock 3 controller. But that’s just the start. The PS Vita TV will allow you to stream video from services like Hulu and Netflix, play PS4 games via Remote Play using a DualShock 4, and play both PSOne Classics and PSP games, again through your TV. It also counts as the smallest PlayStation branded hardware ever released.It’s unclear exactly how Sony intends to position the PS Vita TV in the market. At $100 coupled with the media and game playing/streaming capabilities it could be a great competitor to Apple TV. Its tiny size also means you can plug it in and forget about it sitting next to your TV. Sony is also sweetening the deal by offering the device bundled with a DualShock 3 and 8GB memory card for $150. Not bad. All we need now is a release date and details of availability.last_img read more

Forget Tabs Mute Whole Sites With New Google Chrome Update

first_imgStay on target Easily Assign Tasks With Google AssistantLGBTQ+ Video Creators Sue YouTube, Google There’s more #content on the internet than there ever has been before. And it’s growing at an exponential rate. With so much competition, and so much money on the line, websites will stoop to some pretty dirty tricks to get you and your precious time to stick around. One of the most annoying tactics is auto-play videos blasting you with some loud commercial before you’ve even clicked on anything.In the past one of the best ways to deal with auto-play ads, at least on the Google Chrome browser, would be to mute that guilty tab. But that was always only a temporary solution and you’d have to mute again and again every time you reloaded that page. The new Google Chrome update offers a stronger solution: mute the whole site.Muting is easy. Just right-click on a loud tab, select “Mute Site,” and enjoy the peace and quiet that comes from knowing that offending site’s auto-play videos won’t be bothering you again. It’s like using an ad blocker without the guilt of impacting the livelihood of the website’s employees. This feature was rolled out so casually you probably already have it and don’t even know. So don’t suffer any longer than you have to with auto-play videos.Muting sites wasn’t the only new Google Chrome feature recently rolled out. If your graphics card and monitor can handle it, the browser also now supports stunning HDR video quality. Less flashy (but vital) are new security updates for PC and Mac users including protection against Meltdown, Spectre, and SharedBufferArray vulnerabilities.But really, we just can’t wait to have an online browsing experience that’s exactly as loud as we want it to be. Muting sites is a good step to a better, more respectful web. If you want us to watch and hear your videos, just make videos worth clicking on.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Turn Your Car Into Your Computer

first_img Register Now » 4 min read Add WiFi to Your Car Not that anyone needs more proof that we’ve left the 20th Century in the dust, but our cars are becoming indistinguishable from our laptops.Texting and driving still ranks as a stupid strategy, right up there with the idea for New Coke, but it is increasingly becoming very possible to be safely connected to the internet while behind the wheel, provided you do all the necessary clicking and typing before you press your foot on the gas.After all, you can listen to podcasts while driving, or listen to a favorite show on a video site like Hulu.com (but actually watching the show while driving = bad idea). You could theoretically talk on the phone–through Skype–while making your way to and from the office to your home. And there are probably numerous other ways you could use the internet while driving.You’d be forgiven for thinking that this is way too complicated, and what’s wrong with the radio, anyway? Nevertheless, Chris Rauser, accessories manager for Chevrolet, points out, “If you carpool, you could have several people checking their email on their laptops, turning your car into a mobile office.” Rauser has been eagerly talking up his company’s new Chevrolet Wi-Fi by Autonet Mobile, which recently debuted in some Chevrolet models as well as Buick, Cadillac and GMC vehicles.Rauser adds that because Chevrolet’s modem reach is 150 feet, salespeople on call may find it easier to show prospective clients their wares–they can take their own laptop into a client’s home, using their car’s modem to connect.If you’re thinking of turning your BMW or VW into a PC, or your Cadillac into a Mac, here are a few of the options available to you:Chevrolet Wi-Fi by Autonet Mobile: As noted, this just hit the market. It works with Macs, laptops, PSPs, PDAs, iPhones, iPod Touches and probably anything else you can access the internet from. Once it’s installed in the car, you just use your computer as you would at any other Wi-Fi hotspot. The actual device costs $199 (provided you sign up for a two-year plan and probably other details, so check the fine print) and costs between $29 and $59 a month, depending on whether you go with their 1 GB or 5 GB data plan. More information can be found at the Autonet Mobile website.Volkswagen’s uConnect by Autonet Mobile: Yes, Autonet Mobile’s apparently everywhere. Earlier this summer, they partnered with Volkswagen, equipping their minivan, the Routan, with internet service. Pretty much everything you read in the preceding paragraph applies here. For more information, check out Volkswagen’s press releaseon their car connectivity.Ford Work Solutions: So far, this is just available in trucks–though I imagine cars will be coming down the road soon–and Ford is marketing it heavily to business owners, not to mention farmers, contractors and construction workers. Unlike the Chevrolet Wi-Fi system, with this, you actually buy a computer that goes with your Ford. The computer is $1,125, and the monthly plan is $25 a month for 25 MB or $50 for up to 5 GB of data. The computer includes Garmin GPS navigation, an AM/FM radio and a CD player, has a 6.5″ screen and comes with a wireless Bluetooth keyboard, and if you want, you can buy a wireless Hewlett-Packard printer. Some professionals may not like the fact that–for safety reasons–you can only access your computer and the internet when the vehicle is parked. A little harder to grasp is why you can’t stream the internet’s audio or video, even when you’re parked. But otherwise, it’s a very cool setup. For more information, check out Ford Work Solutions.The road ahead seems to indicate this isn’t a passing trend. In 2011, the Audi 8 will be connected, allowing you to stream video and music and whatever else you want while you’re zipping down the freeway, according to the blog Technology for the Soul. And recently the technological giant Alcatel-Lucent debuted its ng Connect program, which is working to bring dependable internet access to automobiles, with a promise on their web site that offers a glimpse of this technology’s future. “Soon the must-have option for new cars won’t be a sunroof or leather seats–it will be ultra high-speed, high-bandwidth connectivity,” the ng Connect web site promises, assuring all of us: “Your car will be connected.”More from Aol.

first_imgJanuary 25, 2010 – Physicians’ reduce radiation dose by 20 percent exposure to emergency department patients with suspected PE without compromising patient safety in response to an educational intervention, reported a study published in the February issue of American Roentgen Ray Society.Researchers in the Department of Radiology, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY, set out to determine whether the radiation exposure to patients with suspected pulmonary embolism (PE) could be decreased by safely increasing the use of ventilation–perfusion (V/Q) scanning and decreasing the use of CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA) through an educational intervention.The collaborative educational seminars were held among the radiology, nuclear medicine, and emergency medicine departments in December 2006 and January 2007, regarding the radiation dose and accuracies of V/Q scanning and CTPA for diagnosing PE. An imaging algorithm was introduced for reducing radiation exposure, which physicians applied to emergency department patients with a clinical suspicion of PE underwent chest radiography. If the chest radiograph was normal, V/Q scanning was recommended, otherwise CTPA was recommended. The researchers retrospectively tracked the number and results of CTPA and V/Q scanning and calculated mean radiation effective dose before and after the intervention. The number of CTPA examinations performed decreased from 1,234 in 2006 to 920 in 2007, and the number of V/Q scans increased from 745 in 2006 to 1,216 in 2007. The mean effective dose was reduced by 20 percent, from 8.0 mSv in 2006 to 6.4 mSv in 2007 (p Patients in the study in 2006 were of similar age, while in 2007, those who underwent V/Q scanning were significantly younger. There was no significant difference in the false-negative rate (range, 0.8–1.2%) between CTPA and V/Q scanning in 2006 and 2007.Physicians’ practice patterns changed in response to an educational intervention, resulting in a reduction in radiation exposure to emergency department patients with suspected PE without compromising patient safetyReference: Stein, E., Haramati, B., et al.
