VICTORIA — Feeding a Timbit and hot dogs to a bear has resulted in a $2,000 fine in British Columbia.The province’s conservation officer service says the man was also ordered to keep a distance of at least 50 metres from bears for six months by a provincial court judge on Aug. 22.The service says in a tweet the man, whose name was not released, pleaded guilty to a charge of unlawfully feeding bears.The man posted a photo on social media of himself feeding the Tim Hortons treat to the bear from a vehicle on the side of the Alaska Highway.Last October, the service says the bear appeared to be a young grizzly.At the time, the service said a woman was also charged but it made no mention of that case in its tweet.The Canadian Press

Kabul: Election officials in Afghanistan should do more to ensure delayed presidential polls can take place in September, the US embassy in Kabul said Thursday. The election was initially slated for April 20, but as the date drew close it grew obvious that overwhelmed poll officials were unprepared — owing to them still tallying results from a nationwide parliamentary ballot in October. Amid the push to finalise those results, officials first delayed the presidential election until July 20, and then again to September 28. Final results were only announced this week.

Also Read – Iraq military admits ‘excessive force’ used in deadly protests”We are prepared to continue supporting this process.” The embassy statement comes after Alice Wells, the principal deputy assistant secretary of state for South and Central Asian affairs, met with Afghan leaders in Kabul this week, when she stressed the importance of holding the September election. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani’s term technically expires May 22, and his opponents have said his administration should make way for a caretaker government until presidential elections can be held. The supreme court however has said he can remain in power until the next election. The delayed elections come as the United States tries to negotiate a peace deal with the Taliban, and some had speculated the polls were being deliberately stalled to create more space for those talks.
Rabat – The new mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said on Wednesday, May 11 that Donald Trump is “playing into the hands of extremists” and is “ignorant about Islam.”The first Muslim mayor of a Western capital said that his election win, despite a divisive campaign propagated by his Conservative opponent, Zac Goldsmith, is a lesson to Trump that Islam is perfectly compatible with Western values.Khan, a member of the Labor Party said that “Daesh, ISIS, all those guys, hate the fact that I am mayor of London. Why? Because it contradicts what they say, which is that Western liberal values are incompatible with Islam.” Khan called on Americans to consider the example of Londoners who “chose unity over division, and a rejection of the politics of fear.”Khan, the son of a Pakistani bus driver, has made it clear that he doesn’t intend to be a spokesman for Muslims or Islam, but instead seeks to represent all groups in London.Speaking Wednesday in London, he said that American voters faced a decision “of hope over fear, unity over division.”“A choice of somebody who is trying to divide, not just your communities in America but who is trying to divide America from the rest of the world. And I think that, you know, that’s not the America that I know and love.”London’s new mayor hopes that Trump “is not the guy that wins.”Responding to Trump’s decision to make an “exception” for the London mayor during his proposed temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States, Khan quickly shot back, rejecting the suggestion.“I’m not exceptional,” Khan was quoted by CNN as saying.“So for Donald Trump to say, ‘Oh, but Mayor Khan can be allowed, but not the rest,’ is ridiculous,” the mayor said.
BOSTON — A hacker group has posted online the personal information of hundreds of federal agents and police officers apparently stolen from websites affiliated with alumni of the FBI’s National Academy.The Associated Press counted at least 1,400 unique records of employees of the FBI, Secret Service, Capital Police, and other federal agencies as well as police and sheriffs’ deputies in North Carolina and Florida.The information appears to come from the websites of three local chapters of the FBI National Academy Associates, which claims 17,000 members nationwide.The group’s executive director, Howard Cook, said it was looking into whether sites were breached.The AP is not identifying the hackers’ website. A linked Twitter account says the group is based in Ukraine.The hack was first reported by the news site TechCrunch.The Associated Press
8 January 2010The United Nations nuclear watchdog and the European Commission have reached agreement on arrangements to apply ‘integrated safeguards’ in all non-nuclear-weapon States of the European Union that have significant nuclear activities. Olli Heinonen, Deputy Director General and head of the Safeguards Department at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), noted that once the Agency has sufficient confidence that a State’s nuclear activities are purely peaceful, it can apply safeguards measures in a “less prescriptive, more customized” manner. “This reduces the inspection burden on the State and the inspection effort of the IAEA, while enabling the IAEA to maintain the conclusion that all nuclear material has remained in peaceful activities,” he stated in a news release.By the terms of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), the Vienna-based IAEA is entrusted with verifying that nuclear material is not diverted to nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices through the application of ‘safeguards.’ These safeguards include comprehensive safeguards agreements and additional protocols that enable the IAEA to conclude that all nuclear material has remained in peaceful activities in a State. “Integrated Safeguards” are the optimum combination of all safeguards measures available to the Agency under comprehensive safeguards agreements and additional protocols to achieve maximum effectiveness and efficiency in meeting the Agency’s safeguards obligations.Andris Piebalgs, a member of the European Commission in charge of energy, called the agreement reached an “important milestone” resulting from the constructive common efforts of all parties concerned. “It is a clear signal of the importance attributed by the EU and its Member States, as well as the IAEA, to the reinforcement of the nuclear non-proliferation regime,” said Mr. Piebalgs.
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has commended the joint presidential statement on climate change by China and the United States announcing that both countries will sign the Paris Agreement at a special ceremony at UN Headquarters on 22 April, the first day the accord is open for signature.In a statement issued by his spokesperson, Mr. Ban further welcomed the announcement that both countries will take necessary domestic steps to formally join the Agreement as early as possible this year. He also welcomed that they urged other countries to do the same so that the Paris Agreement can enter into force as early as possible.“The Secretary-General is further encouraged by the commitment of the world’s two largest emitters to work for successful outcomes this year to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through the Montreal Protocol, the International Civil Aviation Organization Assembly, and at the upcoming G-20 Summit in Hangzhou, China,” the statement said.The 22 April signature ceremony will build on the strong political momentum from Paris for urgent global climate action by all countries, which is essential for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and creating a more prosperous, equitable and livable future for all people.The climate pact will enter into force after 55 countries that account for at least 55 per cent of global emissions have deposited their instruments of ratification.
The commissioning of the Pilgangoora lithium-tantalum project in Western Australia has continued, with the company racking up 1,000 tonnes of coarse and fines concentrate from its plant.Plant performance, component operation and timing are all in line with expectations, with Pilgangoora on track for the first shipment of next month.Pilbara Minerals’ project is expected to produce around 330,000 tonnes per year of spodumene concentrate when phase one is complete. A phase two expansion could see this rise to more than 800,000 t/y.The company produced first coarse (dense-heavy media separation circuit) concentrate last month (pictured).With both primary sub-circuits (fines and coarse) successfully commissioned, fines concentrates can undergo final processing through the dressing circuit, which is one of the last sub-systems to be commissioned within the concentrator.Pilbara Minerals Managing Director and CEO Ken Brinsden said all of the plant’s components had, so far, met or exceeded expectations.“The extensive planning and due-diligence undertaken by our engineering, construction and production teams is now well and truly paying dividends as we progressively bring the plant on line and ramp-up its capacity,” he said.

Most of us have used graphing calculators at some point in our lives; most likely in algebra or calculus class back in high school. The calculator’s large screen is also conducive for gaming, with simple games like Tetris providing a much-needed break while working hard on that calc homework. But it’s not just the screen that makes gaming on a graphing calculator so easy, it’s also fairly easy to program.The graphing calculator is a powerful tool, and Christopher Mitchell, known as Kerm Martian, the “world’s most prolific graphing calculator programmer,” has designed a working web browser for the TI-84 graphing calculator.AdChoices广告Mitchell, a first-year PhD student at NUY, released the web browser about a month and a half ago. Called Gossamer 1.0, it works over the CALCnet and Global CALCnet networking protocol which allows the TI-84 to request, load, and view web pages from the Internet. The pages are loaded on a remote server and are then displayed on the calculator. There’s even a working load bar that you can watch as your page loads.The result is a pixilated black and white screen packed full of text. Needless to say, it’s not very visually appealing, and in this day and age where our phone screens are have 326 PPI displays, it looks pretty dated. However, it’s still extremely awesome that Mitchell was even able to create a browser for a graphing calculator.You can download Gossamer from the Cemetech archives. It requires Doors CS 7.2 Beta 2 or higher to run. It also works with the TI-83+ calculator.Check out the video below to see Gossamer in action.Read more at Cemetech, via TechCrunch
Live Podcast: Reviewing and discussing WWE Clash of Champions from Charlotte Jason Namako RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Google+ Pinterest Wrestleview Live #65: Reviewing and discussing WWE Clash of Champions from Charlotte Brady Hicks sent this in.Former WCW and WWE star – and NXT trainer – Bill DeMott joined the IN THE ROOM podcast with Brady Hicks, The Stro (WCW’s Maestro, Kathie Fitzpatrick, and Derrick McDonald this past Tuesday, March 29, 2016 to talk about his 28-year career in wrestling. Check it out as DeMott offers his thoughts on everything from the allegations of bullying lodged against him last year to where WWE and NXT could be headed in the near future. Plus, DeMott comments on his “Laughing Man” persona, compares WCW to WWE, talks about what might have been had WCW won the “Monday Night Wars,” and speaks on WWE’s presentation of AJ Styles thus far.Definitely a fun listen! The program is available via vocnation.com or directly at http://thebradyhicks.com/2016/03/in-the-room-with-bill-demott/Things “Going Sour” Between He and WWE:The running line around that company – and I guess a lot of companies – is that “Perception is Reality.” Everybody has this perception that it was a sour thing. I didn’t leave on bad terms with the company. I didn’t leave with any negativity … I’m not the most well-liked person on the Internet. 95% of it is by people who have no idea about me and just go by what they read or what they heard from somebody else, but there’s no sour grapes and there’s no negativity … If I could sum up the whole thing, I took the high road … I was very honored to start something with Triple-H [that’s] become the brand that is NXT. There’s no negativity. There’s [just] a couple individuals that are off my Christmas card list.NXT and the Job that They’ve Done:I’m not a miserable person, contrary to popular opinion. I loved my job and I’m one of the best at it. I look at them every week and there’s nothing but pride. It felt good and I’m happy for them. The running joke is to be careful what you ask for, because you’re going to get it. Now they’re running … The fear is that it becomes the next brand and the next part of WWE. I think the thing that makes NXT different is that it’s still a different approach to the business … I never had a doubt it would grow.On the Perception that NXT is “Off Vince McMahon’s Radar”:That’s an ever-growing conversation [regarding] how do we keep it from becoming Raw or Smackdown or ECW before they went away … I think it’s a fair assessment because people tend to look at it like because NXT is not under Vince, it can be different. Like it or not, it’s all under Vince. And the fact that he gave the reigns to Hunter and he’s running with it … that’s an ever-happening conversation. But I don’t think it has anything to do with whether it’s under Vince or not. I think that’s just peoples’ perception, [that] as long as Vince doesn’t put his hands on it, it will stay great.On WWE Opening Up to Adding More Independent Wrestlers:At the end of the day, Vince’s formula works. It’s a successful business. From my experience of being in those rooms is that, while everyone is well aware of who’s out there – look how long it took for AJ Styles – … [but] you just wait to when it fits … For me, the downside … is that they’ve been [punching] their “bump card” for the past 10 years, and now that they get to WWE or wherever they’re going, that the longevity is not going to be there. But I like to see the diversity … Batista is a big [guy], but we don’t have 14 Batistas standing by. But there’s 35 cats of every shape and size – and divas – that can do everything under the sun. I’m excited to see how that changes the product … While people get all pissed off on the Internet, look at how satisfied they are when it finally happens.IN THE ROOM airs live, weekly, Tuesday nights at 9 PM ET on the VOC Nation Radio Network (vocnation.com). Join Brady Hicks (Pro Wrestling Illustrated contributing writer), as well as The Stro (WCW’s Maestro), Kathie Fitz, and Derrick McDonald as they run down all that’s going on in wrestling, and sit down with some of wrestling’s top stars.

The parking lots, subdivisions and roads that have sprung up in Clark County in recent decades put new pressures on local streams and the aquatic life they support.Its up to state and local officials to balance the county’s continuing development with maintaining and improving the water quality of its small waterways.Clark County recently finished a draft watershed-scale stormwater plan for Whipple Creek.In compliance with its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Phase I Municipal stormwater permit, Clark County has to report to the Washington Department of Ecology what it would take for the creek to meet its designated uses, which includes salmon spawning, rearing and migration.The report used computer modeling and simulations to calculate ways for meeting the state’s water quality standards.“The purpose of a conceptual analysis is to provide models of what does and doesn’t work,” said Rod Swanson, a program manager for the Clark County Public Works Clean Water Division.“The goal in the permit is to restore designated uses. Those aren’t necessarily things that are readily attainable,” Swanson said.The creek’s 12 square-mile watershed drains out of the hills east of Interstate 5, near Washington State University Vancouver’s campus and into Lake River in the west. The watershed was once undeveloped forested land and wetlands, and later rural and agricultural lands, but in recent decades the land has been cleared for development.

Time is cruel, deadly even. We all know each and every person will die someday, but art is supposed to be the thing that outlasts us. It’s the immortal glue of culture. Unfortunately, art can fall prey to time as well, especially more obscure art. Estimates say that half of all films made in the first half of the medium’s life are now lost. Then think about all of the books and paintings and epic stone tablet poems we’ve lost over thousands of years. It’s a miracle anything is ever saved at all.Video games are especially guilty of failing to preserve their legacy. Part of it is that the speed at which technology changes makes it hard to maintain the past, especially the weird analog past. But a lot of it is industry greed and laziness and “anti-piracy” measures. And now, even though gaming hasn’t been around for that long, there are a bunch of games nearly lost to time. These are video games that are now so rare you’ll most likely never get to play them. We can’t even get good screenshots of them!Any Virtual Boy GameThe Wii U looks like a monumental success compared to the utter failure of Nintendo hardware that is the Virtual Boy, a red, eye-murdering piece of early VR hardware. Despite the hellish platform, some Virtual Boy games reach typical Nintendo levels of high quality, like Wario Land. But good luck ever getting your hands on a game for this device Nintendo quickly shoved down the memory hole.BS ZeldaNintendo has an infamously tricky history with online play, but during the SNES era they were weirdly ahead of the curve when it came to streaming, at least in Japan. The Satellaview let the Super Famicom receive satellite radio broadcasts to play new games. And one of those games was a 16-bit remake of the original Legend of Zelda with voice actors. But the bizarre way these were distributed makes it tough if not impossible play them again.Nintendo World Champion CartIn the era before eSports, Nintendo challenged its fans to show off their NES skills during the Nintendo World Championship in 1990. Players competed in special versions of NES games like Super Mario Bros., Rad Racer, and Tetris programmed into a special gold cartridge. And if you can find one of those cartridges today you truly are a Nintendo World Champion.Birthday ManiaIt’s the oldest art that tends to be the most rare, since no one at the time knows whether or not the art will ever end up being worth saving. Birthday Mania is just some random little game about blowing out candles made by a self-taught developer. But since only like ten copies exist it’s now that much more valuable.Tetris for Sega Genesis (also Nintendo DS)Tetris is one of the most beloved and best-selling games of all time. The Sega Genesis is far and away the most successful piece of Sega hardware. Yet for some reason there are less than a dozen cartridges out there for the Genesis version of Tetris. And while Tetris for the Nintendo DS is much more common than that, it is out of print and weirdly tough to get, which is a shame because it is excellent.Nintendo PlayStation GamesImagine how different the video game industry would have been if Nintendo and Sony had teamed up instead of becoming rivals. We got a glimpse into that alternate future when someone dug up a functioning prototype for a Nintendo PlayStation. We’re shocked that anyone has played it, but you never will.King of Fighters 2000 in EnglishSimilar to Panzer Dragoon Saga, the English-language version of the 2000 edition of SNK’s seminal fighting franchise King of Fighters is surprisingly tough to get your hands on. There are about 100 cartridges. But if you just want to play the game and embrace the Japanese, you can easily emulate it on modern hardware like PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.PTWatching the PT saga unfold was like watching a ghost story in the making, which is appropriate since this “Playable Teaser” was an excellent demo/trailer for horror game reboot Silent Hills. But since publisher Konami pulled the plug on making new video games, it erased PT from existence, delisting it from online stores and even removing it from player’s hard drives if they connected online. So anyone lucky enough to have PT files still stored safely gained new appreciation for ghosts in the machine.Trip WorldTrip World is a Japan- and Europe-only platformer for the original Game Boy made by Sunsoft, the Blaster Master people. By all accounts it’s pretty great, but the limited release has turned it into a collector’s item. Maybe we’ll get a Trip World Zero reboot that spikes the price up for the original even more.picture via Atari ManiaAir RaidAnother Atari game made rare by time and apathy, Air Raid is the first and only game from developer Men-A-Vision and was produced in limited quantities. The distinct cartridge is sky blue and features a handle. So if you see this one in the wild you’ll recognize it. But you won’t see it.Gamma AttackOnly one cartridge of this Atari 2600 game exists. Just one copy. The owner once asked for half a million dollars for it on eBay, but can you blame them when this is the only copy of this game that exists? You will definitely never play this.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

News | Pediatric Imaging | August 14, 2019 Ultrasound Guidance Improves First-attempt Success in IV Access in Children August 14, 2019 – Children’s veins read more September 30, 2016 — Hitachi Aloka Medical America recently announced the support of its Arietta 70 and Arietta 60 ultrasound systems with iVu Imaging Corp.’s Sofia 3-D whole-breast imaging system. The Hitachi Arietta platform and its long linear transducer enable the Sofia system to automate the 3-D radial acquisition of an entire breast in nearly half the time of previous-generation ultrasound systems.David Famiglietti, president of Hitachi Aloka Medical America, explained that pairing Arietta with Sofia improves the image quality and speed of whole-breast exams. The combination allows scan times of 30 seconds per breast, enabling a bilateral whole-breast study to be scheduled every 10 minutes.Famiglietti also highlighted Sofia’s convertible scan table that allows it to support a broad spectrum of conventional manual ultrasound exams when it is not being used for whole-breast imaging.Mark Stribling, president of iVu, noted “The Arietta platform is the latest in a series of game-changing breakthroughs for 3-D whole-breast ultrasound. Hitachi ultrasound now enables the Sofia system to scan eight times faster than its original configuration, while also tripling the resolution.” Stribling added, “At the same time, we are still able to present a single breast volume to the radiologist, clearly showing the structures of the breast in their natively-acquired radial plane along with the reconstructed coronal, sagittal, and oblique views if desired. The result is average interpretation times of about one minute per breast.”Hitachi Aloka Medical America stated that it will begin shipping Sofia-capable Arietta 70 and Arietta 60 systems in the United States in September and will offer a software upgrade to existing Arietta 70 and Arietta 60 customers shortly thereafter.For more information: www.hitachi-aloka.com, www.ivuimaging.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content Technology | Interventional Radiology | August 16, 2019 Profound Medical Receives U.S. FDA 510(k) Clearance for Tulsa-Pro Profound Medical Corp. announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to… read more News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more Technology | Ultrasound Women’s Health | September 30, 2016 Hitachi Aloka Medical America and iVu Pair Ultrasound Technologies for Whole-breast Imaging Hitachi’s Arietta 60 and Arietta 70 systems now integrate iVu’s whole-breast imaging system News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more News | Mammography Reporting Software | July 26, 2019 Ikonopedia Releases Automated Combined Reporting Package at AHRA Ikonopedia showcased its recently released Automated Combined Reporting package and its entire suite of structured… read more News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | August 05, 2019 Digital Health Devices Used at Point of Care May Improve Diagnostic Certainty A West Virginia-based rural medical outreach event showcased the use of point-of-care technology in an ambulatory… read more News | Mammography | August 14, 2019 Imago Systems Announces Collaboration With Mayo Clinic for Breast Imaging Image visualization company Imago Systems announced it has signed a know-how license with Mayo Clinic.
