According to data provided by VesselsValue, the ships were valued at around USD 21 million a piece, bringing the total order value to around USD 170 million.At the time of the contract signing, Wan Hai informed that the order was worth between USD 212 million and USD 326 million.The new containerships were scheduled to join the company’s fleet starting from January 2018.World Maritime News Staff
NEW DELHI: The Election Commission on Wednesday served a showcause notice to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for calling the Indian Army “Modiji ki sena”. The Commission has asked the BJP leader to file a reply by April 5. The development comes after the UP Chief Electoral Officer sought a transcript of Adityanath’s speech that he delivered in Ghaziabad to check whether there had been any violation of the Model Code of Conduct. At a rally in Ghaziabad on Sunday, while referring to developments post the Pulwama terror attack, Adityanath said while the Congress used to feed biryani to terrorists, Modiji’s Army gives bullets and bombs to terrorists. The EC had on March 19 asked political parties to “desist” from indulging in any propaganda involving actions taken by defence forces during their Lok Sabha poll campaigns.
With new diseases emerging at an unprecedented rate in an increasingly interconnected world, often with the ability to cross borders rapidly, global public health security depends on international cooperation and surveillance more than at any previous time in history, the United Nations health agency warned in its annual report today. “Given today’s universal vulnerability to these threats, better security calls for global solidarity,” UN World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Margaret Chan said in releasing this year’s World Health Report, entitled “A safer future: global public health security in the 21st century.” “International public health security is both a collective aspiration and a mutual responsibility. The new watchwords are diplomacy, cooperation, transparency and preparedness,” she added of the report, which calls pandemic influenza the most feared threat to health security in our times. Experts fear that the current bird flu virus, which has so far infected 321 people, killing 194 of them, could mutate to easy human-to-human transmission. The so-called Spanish flu pandemic of 1918-1920, which spread easily between humans, is estimated to have killed from 20 million to 40 million people. The experts say a new flu pandemic is not a question of if but of when. The report sets out the WHO strategic action plan to respond to a pandemic. It also draws attention to the need for stronger health systems and for continued vigilance in managing the risks and consequences of the international spread of polio and the newly emerging strain of extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB). It notes that since 1967, at least 39 new pathogens have been identified, including HIV, the deadly haemorrhagic Ebola and Marburg fevers, and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), which emerged in China in 2003 and spread rapidly as far as Canada, infecting more than 8,000 people, over 800 of them fatally, before it was brought under control. Other centuries-old threats, such as pandemic influenza, malaria and tuberculosis, continue to pose a threat to health through a combination of mutation, rising resistance to antimicrobial medicines and weak health systems. New threats have also emerged, linked to potential terrorist attacks, chemical incidents and radio-nuclear accidents, it adds. Its recommendations include global cooperation in surveillance and outbreak alert and response; open sharing of knowledge, technologies and materials, including viruses and other laboratory samples, necessary to optimize secure global public health; and global responsibility for capacity building within the public health infrastructure of all countries. The report also calls for cross-sector collaboration within Governments and increased global and national resources for training, surveillance, laboratory capacity, response networks, and prevention campaigns. It shows how and why diseases are increasingly threatening global public health security, citing the high and rapid mobility of people as one factor. Airlines now carry more than two billion passengers a year, enabling people and the diseases that travel with them to pass from one country to another in a matter of hours. The potential health and economic impact was seen in 2003 with SARS, which cost Asian countries an estimated $60 billion of gross expenditure and business losses. The report outlines some of the human factors behind public health insecurity, including inadequate investment in public health resulting from a false sense of security in the absence of infectious disease outbreaks; unexpected policy changes such as a decision temporarily to halt immunization in northern Nigeria in 2003, which led to the re-emergence of polio cases; and conflicts where forced migration obliges people to live in overcrowded, unhygienic and impoverished conditions heightening the risk of epidemics. Other factors include microbial evolution and antibiotic resistance and animal husbandry and food processing threats such as the human form of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) and Nipah virus. 23 August 2007With new diseases emerging at an unprecedented rate in an increasingly interconnected world, often with the ability to cross borders rapidly, global public health security depends on international cooperation and surveillance more than at any previous time in history, the United Nations health agency warned in its annual report today.
As the federal policy does not overstep provincial jurisdiction, Ontario’s top court has sided with Trudeau’s carbon tax. But the Doug Ford government says their fight against this tax is not over and in a statement today Premier Ford says he is disappointed in the courts ruling.“We know, as do the people of this province, that the federal government’s carbon tax is making life more expensive for Ontarians and is putting jobs and businesses at risk”The province argued that the federal carbon tax overstepped provincial authority, but the chief justice with the Ontario court says climate change is a matter of national concern.Federal Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, Catherine McKenna said “carbon pollution which knows no borders, is a clear issue of national concern, and which presents an urgent threat to canadians and the world. One of the Ford government’s top priorities since taking office has been abolishing the federal carbon tax in Ontario.”She went on to say that the tax will cost the average household nearly $650 000 a year by 2022. And Ford isn’t the only one fighting Trudeau on this. The top court of Saskatewan also sided with the feds last month. Manitoba, Alberta and New Brunswick are also fighting against the tax on carbon pollution.Ontario Green Party leader Mike Schreiner says the Ford government has tried to distract Ontarians with stickers at gas pumps and selfies, adding that “for the past year, the Premier has wasted our money in a $30 million misinformation campaign to sabotage climate solutions.”Ford says his government will appeal the ruling. Political analyst Keith Leslie says Ford was expecting this outcome.“Premier Ford has spoken before about losing a couple of battles but planning to win the war. They want to get this to the supreme court. They’ve budgeted $30 million to do so”The province says it doesn’t need the carbon tax to address climate change.Adding to that, Ottawa is increasing the carbon tax on new natural-gas plants as part of the final regulations for its carbon-pricing system for big industrial greenhouse-gas emitters.The move is intended to discourage power companies from building the facilities. Changes taking effect this week mean that new natural-gas plants will have their emissions standard toughened each year after 2021, to the point that in 2030 they will pay the carbon price on every ounce of their emissions.
Share29 Tweet Email2 Latest poll puts Clinton at a double-digit lead over Trump With just over two weeks to go before Election Day, the two White House hopefuls are targeting key battleground states like Florida, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania Sunday 23 Oct 2016, 4:10 PM HILLARY CLINTON HAS soared to a 12-point lead over Donald Trump in the race for the White House, according to a new poll released today, with the real estate magnate’s support tanking among key voter groups.The Republican presidential nominee has seen dismal poll numbers since a string of women came forward earlier this month to accuse him of sexual assault or inappropriate behavior in the past.He has also stirred controversy by refusing to say that he will accept the result of the 8 November election no matter what, calling the process “rigged.”Clinton, the Democratic former secretary of state, leads 50% to 38% in a four-way contest with two minor party candidates, according to a national ABC News poll.It was up from Clinton’s four percentage point edge in an ABC News/Washington Post poll conducted 10 days ago.Trump held a small 47-43% lead among white Americans, a group that Republican Mitt Romney won by 20 points in the 2012 election.Republican candidates must have strong support from white voters if they want to win, with non-white voters overwhelmingly favoring Democratic candidates.Clinton leads 55-35% among women, and has doubled her lead to 32 points among college-educated white women – a group strongly critical of Trump’s response to allegations of inappropriate behavior.

So we’re running a coordinated campaign, working hard with gubernatorial, Senate and House candidates. But we’re not – you know, this is not over yet.Early voting has begun in several states, and the initial details were positive, Mook said.We feel very, very good about what we’ve seen so far… And we’re encouraged also by who is turning out.Trump has tried to change the narrative, outlining his plan for his first 100 days in office yesterday, including a pledge to create 25 million jobs and cut taxes for middle-class Americans.“The fact is that this race is not over,” Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told Fox News on Sunday, outlining a plan to win crucial battleground states.He’s not – we’re not giving up. We know we can win this.Trump’s son Eric said polls don’t reflect the support of people who haven’t been on voter rolls for years but will turn out on Election Day to support the populist candidate.“I’m so incredibly proud.

The American Soybean Association (ASA) is pleased that the Office of Inspector General (OIG) has completed its review and found that the soybean checkoff is operating as it should. We are pleased that we can put this issue behind our industry.When whistleblowers presented significant allegations of abuse, the ASA Board of Directors had a fiduciary responsibility to ask that the allegations be investigated in the best interests of soybean farmers. The Secretary of Agriculture agreed that an OIG investigation was warranted.Substantial management and board changes have been made at the U.S. Soybean Export Council (USSEC) after ASA asked for an OIG investigation. The now former USSEC CEO was placed on administrative leave and the board of directors has been restructured. As a result of the significant leadership and management changes that have been made at USSEC, we believe soybean farmer interests are being better served.Soybean farmers benefit from a strong policy organization in ASA and our state affiliates, working for them on legislative and regulatory issues, as well as from a soybean checkoff working at the national and state levels. ASA supports the continuation of the national soybean checkoff because we believe it provides needed resources to expand demand for U.S. soybeans and products.ASA believes that by working together, we can create the best possible present and future for U.S. soybean farmers and the U.S. soybean industry. As soybean industry leaders, we need to continue to move forward on many issues important to soybean farmers ranging from trade expansion to biofuels to soybean research to domestic livestock demand. Collaboration between the checkoff and ASA is ongoing in a number of areas important to the future of the U.S. soybean industry.ASA is the only national, non-governmental, non-profit trade organization that represents soybean farmers in the United States. It was ASA and its state affiliates that developed the concept for national soybean checkoff in the late 1980s and then worked with Congress and U.S. Department of Agriculture to establish the national soybean checkoff in 1990.
Abu Dhabi: India finds a partner in the UAE to achieve its ambitious dream of achieving a USD five trillion economy, Prime Minister Narendra Modi told the Emirates News Agency, WAM, in an exclusive interview. “We consider the UAE as a valuable partner in realising the objective to reach USD 5 trillion economy through mutually beneficial partnership,” said Modi, who is currently on a two-day state visit to the UAE.

Both countries are working closely and vigorously to implement the commitment of USD 75 billion investment by the UAE in India,” Prime Minister Modi said. Advertise With Us “I feel immensely proud in conveying that India-UAE relations are at their best ever,” added the Prime Minister. He highlighted the importance of the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership Agreement signed during the visit of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to India in January 2017 as the Chief Guest of Indian Republic Day. “Since then we have made enormous progress in implementing agreements signed in key areas including defence, security, investment in infrastructure, energy and more. In other words, our relations are truly multi-dimensional,” Modi pointed out. “I sincerely compliment the leadership and direction that His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed has personally provided in taking this relationship to new heights,” he said. The Prime Minister believes that his third visit to the UAE, in the last four years, reflects the desire and will of the two countries to sustain the momentum achieved in the bilateral relationship. “In this visit, I look forward to further strengthening our all-round cooperation. I also look forward to holding discussions with my brother His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed. I greatly admire his vision. I always find the exchange of views with him stimulating and energising,” he explained. “We have a number of important matters to discuss regarding bilateral relations as well as the regional and global situation. I am confident that my visit will serve to further strengthen our robust and vibrant relations,” Modi said. “I am very upbeat about the trajectory of our relations and for opening up new areas of cooperation. I think there exists huge potential to make this cooperation a win-win for both countries,” he added. About The Order of Zayed, the highest civilian award of the UAE, which he is receiving on Saturday morning, the Prime Minister said, “It is an honour of special significance for me and my fellow 1.3 billion Indians. It commemorates the memory of a great and visionary world leader, the Father of this beautiful nation, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.” “It is an even greater honour to be conferred this Order in the birth centenary year of Sheikh Zayed. His ideas, vision and wisdom are very much relevant in contemporary times. This award for me also symbolises the brotherly ties between our two countries and their peoples,” Modi stressed. About Indian community in the UAE, he said, “We are immensely proud that the rich contribution of our community in building a modern, diverse and vibrant UAE are acknowledged and appreciated by the leadership of the UAE. “Apart from the Indians whose remittances sustain their families back home in India, we are also witnessing a steady increase in investments into India by some of the top Indian business leaders in the UAE. “I extend my deepest appreciation to the leadership of the UAE for looking after the well-being of the Indian diaspora here like a true guardian. I would also like to thank the leadership of the UAE on the steps taken recently to provide long-term visas and other benefits to expatriates.” Talking about the global economic situation, the Prime Minister said, “Global economy is facing some headwinds. Experiences of the last five years, however, give me the confidence that the Indian economy and people of India have everything in them to not only face but also counter any headwinds.” India’s fundamentals are very strong, driven by “numerous” strengths, he said. The last five years have seen the highest average growth and lowest average inflation in the last three decades, Modi went on to say, adding that India has been improving its performance in “almost all global rankings,” such as ease of doing business or innovation. He said India had significantly increased its contribution to global growth in the last five years, making India an important engine of the global economy. “I am confident that the collective endeavour of 1.3 billion Indians comprising millions of farmers, hundreds of thousands of industrialists and young entrepreneurs and start-ups and women, will ensure this.” He said. “India’s skilled human resources, rapid infrastructure growth and the world’s biggest market are reasons for our optimism. At the same time, we are focused on further improving our competitiveness through long-term reforms.” These encompass steps to move even higher in ease of doing business, tax reforms with lowering of tax rates and simplifying procedures, labour sector reforms and Foreign Direct Investment-related reforms to make an investment in India more lucrative, he explained. During the past few years, he said, India has become “the fastest-growing major economy in the world,” adding that all the macro-economic parameters such as current account deficit, fiscal deficit and inflation were brought down to acceptable levels. The vision for the next five years is to have an investment-led growth, Modi concluded.

The Motion Copy System uses motion capture in a new way to faithfully recreate the strokes of master calligraphers. Calligraphy is done by dipping a paint brush in ink and then using it to paint characters on a piece of paper. Creating traditional kanji characters requires more than back and forth swiping however, it also involves up and down movements of the brush to create different effects, based on the force of the hand. The new robot arm captures these force strokes by use of a new kind of capture mechanism, a brush with independent brush handle segments.One segment is attached to the robot arm, it holds the brush head and performs the inking. The other segment is used by a human calligrapher and is held above the brush head. As characters are painted, seemingly in the air, the brush segment held by the robot mimics the action and relays information about what it is doing to its processing unit which converts it into data that can be used later to recreate the calligrapher’s movements. The end result is a robot arm that can faithfully reproduce the calligraphy style of individual artists.The researchers say their device can be used to store the different stylings of professional calligraphers to help preserve an art form that is slowly dying out due to lack of interest by young people in the country today.The Motion Copy System was demoed at the recent Ceatec 2012 tech show in Tokyo. Up till now, motion capture machines for teaching robots to write have been based on two dimensional systems. A person holds a pen or stylus and writes words on a base tablet. The method for recreating the characters is recorded by noting the order in which the characters are drawn or by attaching another stylus to the first and then mimicking its actions. The Motion Copy System is based on the second approach, but takes it into a third dimension.
A pair of researchers with Stanford University has found that some naturally heat-resistant corals were able to survive relocation, even after an El Nino warming event. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Megan Morikawa and Stephen Palumbi describe their study of ways to prevent the coral loss and what they found. As the planet continues to heat up due to continued emission of greenhouse gases, the oceans continue to warm, as well. One of the known impacts of a warming ocean is coral bleaching, which leads to coral death. Coral bleaching occurs when water temperatures rise because it incites the coral to eject algae. Algae live in coral bony structures and actually feed the coral, which results in the development of bright colors. Without the algae, the color erodes as the coral starves to death. Prior research has shown that such bleaching is responsible for the death of 80 percent of the reefs in the Caribbean and approximately half of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. In this new effort, the researchers looked at a possible way to save coral from disappearing entirely from the world’s oceans—transplanting naturally heat-resistant coral to other locations.Prior research has shown that some coral can withstand warmer temperatures. But it is unclear whether individual specimens within a species or group are resistant, or entire species. Also unknown is whether the species of algae play a role in the resistance, or if other environmental factors play a role. To learn more, Morikawa and Palumbi collected samples of known heat-tolerant coral back in 2014 and transplanted them to sites around the Samoan Islands where the coral reefs had been destroyed by hurricanes. As if on cue, an El Nino event warmed those same waters just eight months later. The researchers report that the transplanted coral survived the event.

The researchers also acknowledge that more work is required to determine which factors might lead to the best approach to revive depleted coral reefs.

This story originally appeared on Fortune Magazine 2 min read Senior Republicans late Tuesday signalled they had would give in to President Obama’s plans for ‘net neutrality’, paving the way for the provision of internet services to be regulated for the first time like a public utility.The New York Times reported South Dakota Senator John Thune as admitting that there was little prospect of getting Congress to overturn a ruling by the Federal Communications Commission on Thursday that is likely to bar companies from offering faster Internet connections at premium rates.“We’re not going to get a signed bill that doesn’t have Democrats’ support,” the NYT quoted Thune, who is also chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, as saying. “This is an issue that needs to have bipartisan support.”The FCC’s five Commissioners are split on the issue, with three Democrats led by chairman Tom Wheeler all likely to vote in favor of enforcing ‘net neutrality’, while the two Republican commissioners oppose it.However, the ruling is likely to be vigorously contested by a broad swathe of companies from Comcast Corp. to IBM Corp. and Verizon Communications Inc. that have lobbied heavily for freedom to price their services as they see fit and argued that tighter regulation will deter investment in building out broadband internet across the country.Many have seen the initiative as a landmark expansion of central government’s regulatory agenda, which advocates have justified by stressing the need to prevent oligopolistic control of a service which has flourished over the last two decades, not least, because of its openness.

My cooking was obviously so great I couldn’t get rid of him since.’The cute couple made it official and have been taking it nice and slow ever since.Nate jokes: ‘We didn’t even sleep together until the third date (*cough* my cooking skills *cough*)’ Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading…
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 September 22, 2009 – Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. yesterday introduced Low-Contrast Imaging (LCI) for Toshiba’s Infinix-i systems with mid (12” x 12”) and large (12” x 16”) flat-panel detectors (FPD). Toshiba will demonstrate its low-contrast imaging capabilities at this year’s Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) annual meeting in San Francisco, Sept. 21-25, at its booth 705.The company said it enables better visualization of soft tissue to improve the imaging and treatment of patients by offering CT-like images of soft tissue, including brain tissue, cerebral ventricles and hepatic visualization, without requiring additional exams.Beneficial for both physicians and patients, low-contrast imaging allows better visualization of soft tissue in the angiography suite and enables more accurate diagnosis of a variety of diseases using a single system. Additionally, this technology may be used to confirm appropriate endpoints during interventional procedures, such as aortic stent-grafting. Capturing CT-like images without the use of an additional test helps improve accuracy and workflow in the angio suite. It also leads to lowering overall health care costs by using a single system to treat numerous diseases and handle multiple procedures. The Infinix-i line features a five-axis C-arm that enables head-to-toe and fingertip-to-fingertip coverage and allows greater clinician access to the patient for diagnostic and interventional procedures. The freely moving components, ergonomically friendly design and five-axis positioner enable physicians to obtain optimal angles for cardiac diagnosis and interventional procedures without repositioning the patient. Infinix’s unique, flexible design improves workflow and collaboration between cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, anesthesiologists and clinical staff during exams, especially in hybrid OR settings.

Pinky’s Eco RetreatApproval for Pinky’s Eco Retreat makes Rottnest Island glamping a realityAfter much anticipation, visitors to Rottnest Island off the coast of Perth in Western Australia will soon be able to enjoy stylish new environmentally-conscious accommodation when Pinky’s Eco Retreat opens in late 2018.The Rottnest Island Authority Board has conditionally approved the world-class beachside eco tent resort following a detailed application process and public consultation period. Developers, the Baileys Group, plan to commence construction in early 2018.Pinky’s Eco Retreat will be the first new accommodation to be built on Rottnest Island in 30 years and will provide a new experience and offering for visitors.Nestled behind the dunes of Pinky Beach and a few steps away from popular snorkeling beach The Basin, the Retreat will retain Rottnest’s laid-back West Australian character in a series of 86 low impact eco tents of varying sizes and styles and a Beach Club, interconnected by raised walkways throughout, and accessible to all Rottnest visitors, creating a place where everyone is welcome.Pinky’s will appeal to both groups and couples and all budgets providing a range of eco tents from luxury ‘glamping’ to affordable family accommodation.Baileys Group Director Guy Bailey said the approval was welcome news.“Pinky’s Eco Retreat has been two years in the planning so now having approval to turn our vision into a reality is extremely exciting.“Each member of the Baileys Group has been visiting Rotto since childhood and we all have strong connections to the island.“To be able to deliver a new style of accommodation to the Island for locals and interstate and international visitors will be hugely satisfying,” he said.Each eco-tent will include an ensuite bathroom with outdoor shower, bath, lounge area, comfortable pillow-topped double bed or two single beds. They will include a private outdoor entertaining area with day bed and comfortable seating. Tea, coffee and fridge facilities will be included.Interiors will reflect the Australian coastal setting using high quality materials including eco-engineered timber floors, raw linens, and weathered stone and wood. Overhead fans will cool the tents in place of air conditioning. Secure bike port facilities will be available with each tent.As part of the Pinky’s Eco Retreat development, Baileys Group will improve public access to both Pinky Beach and The Basin via new raised walkways, and increase publicly-accessible open space. Substantial work will be done to stabilise and revegetate existing degraded sand dunes. There will be no fencing, and raised walkways will protect the landscape and allow native fauna to continue to roam freely.An open air informal contemporary Beach Club restaurant and bar for guests and beachgoers will be a feature of Pinky’s Eco Retreat. It will provide the first food and beverage outlet between the Settlement and Geordie Bay and will include take away options for people touring around the island. There will also be public showers and bathrooms.To find out more visit www.pinkysrottnest.com.au and sign up for the e-news to get updates on timing and booking availability, or search for Pinky’s Rottnest on Facebook and Instagram.Source = Pinky’s Eco Retreat
