first_imgChennai: Polling for the high stakes by-election to four constituencies in Tamil Nadu will get underway on Sunday.While the by-polls to 18 seats were held along with Lok Sabha polls on April 18 in the state, four other assembly segments — Sulur, Aravakurichi, Ottapidaram (SC) and Thiruparankundram go for polls on May 19. The Sulur seat fell vacant in March following the death of AIADMK MLA R Kanakaraj who died following cardiac arrest.

According to Chief Electoral Officer Satyabrata Sahoo, a total of 137 candidates are in fray in the assembly constituencies wit Aravakurichi leading with 63 MLA aspirants. A total of 15,939 police personnel have been deployed to maintain law and order. The outcome of the by-polls to a total of 22 seats will decide the future political course in Tamil Nadu as the results would determine the continuance of the two year-old Palaniswami government.

AIADMK rebel and Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam leader T T V Dhinakaran, Kamal Haasan’s Makkal Needhi Maiam, actor-director Seeman’s Naam Tamizhar Katchi have fielded candidates in the four constituencies, making it a multi-cornered contest. The campaign trail turned hot in its last leg, after Haasan stoked a major political row with his Hindu extremist remarks, labelling Mahatma Gandhi’s killer Nathuram Godse as one. He had said “free India’s first extremist” was Godse and that he was a Hindu, drawing strong condemnation from BJP and the AIADMK, even as cases were filed against Haasan. He, however, found support from the Congress’ state unit and rationalist outfit Dravidar Kazhagam. In the 234-member Tamil Nadu assembly with 22 vacancies, the AIADMK has a strength of 113, excluding the Speaker.last_img read more

UN antinarcotics panel urges Uruguay to reconsider draft law on cannabis sale

If adopted, the law would be in contravention to the provisions of the international drug control treaties, in particular the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, to which Uruguay is a party.According to the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), the law would also have serious consequences for the health and welfare of the population and for the prevention of cannabis abuse among the youth. The INCB urged the Uruguayan authorities to ensure that the country remains fully compliant with international law which limits the use of narcotic drugs, including cannabis, exclusively to medical and scientific purposes. Based in Vienna, the INCB is an independent and quasi-judicial monitoring body mandated to implement UN international drug control conventions. “In line with its mandate, INCB has always aimed at maintaining a dialogue with the Government of Uruguay on this issue, including proposing a mission to the country at the highest-level,” the Board said in a news release, calling on the Uruguayan authorities to carefully consider all possible repercussions before taking a decision.It also expressed regret that the Government refused to receive an INCB mission before the draft law was submitted to Parliament for deliberation.The UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) also expressed concern over the proposed legislation and said it would continue to follow developments in Uruguay very closely.UNODC spokesperson David Dadge said international drug control conventions remain the foundation of global efforts to curb elicit drug trafficking and provide prevention and treatment for drug users.While he acknowledged that there are challenges that need to be addressed, he stressed that dialogue is need on how to stop drug traffickers and protect the health and welfare of people. “But this dialogue should be conducted on the basis of the agreed conventions, in line with international law.”He noted that next year, the Commission on Narcotic Drugs will hold a high-level review of Member States’ implementation of the Political Declaration and Plan of Action on the world drug problem and said this would be an opportunity for countries to pursue a coherent approach to drug trafficking. read more

Heritage Farm A growing presence in Hazel Dell

first_img Kneeling beside a row of kohlrabi, Dee Rogers tends to a field that may have once saved her life.Rogers is a veteran of the Marine Corps who was once homeless and bouncing aimlessly about the Northwest. A few years back she ended up in a hospital on the coast.“I was really sick,” she says, matter-of-factly. “Drinking too much.”From that hospital visit she connected with veterans’ services, which eventually brought her to Clark County’s Heritage Farm where she got involved with the Partners in Careers program. The group helps veterans learn job skills in agriculture while giving them a serene place to heal.It worked for Rogers, but she’s no longer in the program. Now she’s the program coordinator. Now she helps others heal.“Some things that happen to you can make you feel dead inside,” she says. “This is the opposite.”This spread was once called the Clark County Poor Farm, where the most vulnerable residents could go to get some work, make some money and earn a meal.“I mean, just look at the history of this place,” Rogers says. “It was for the sick and poor. And it still is. I mean, we’re the sick and the poor. In a way, all of us are sick and poor.”Many faces of the farmThis place is all about potential.Every time someone shows up at the Heritage Farm and learns a lesson, or plants a first seed, or harvests a first ear of sweet corn, it is a triumph.

Best AirPods accessories

Read full review See All Aug 31 • Verizon vs AT&T vs T-Mobile vs Sprint: Choose the best 5G carrier This accessory solves two AirPod issues with one accessory. AhaStyle’s Earbuds Ear Hooks integrate a sport fin with earbuds and turn the “open” AirPods into a noise-isolating design that helps keep ambient sound out and improves bass performance.You get two fins — small and large — both of which have the same size ear tip, which is on the small side. I wasn’t able to achieve a tight seal with the included ear tip (it would be good if medium and large tips were included) but there was enough of a seal to improve bass performance and the overall sound of the AirPods. It’s also worth noting that a small silicone carrying case is included that you can attach to a keychain. Apple $144 Apple’s new Wireless Charging Case comes with the new AirPods for $40 extra, but Apple also sells it separately for owners of the first-generation AirPods. The only issue is that it costs $79, which seems a tad pricey, especially as no charging pad is included. (The Belkin pictured here is an additional $45.) Read more Share your voice The fidget-spinner craze may have come and gone, but the new $30 ZenPod from Air Vinyl Design may help bring it back.Yes, this is the first spinning case for your AirPods and it’s frankly kind of ingenious. Available in three color options, the ZenPod has precision bearings on each side of the case that give it that spin factor that we’ve all secretly craved.Alas, it doesn’t add wireless charging capabilities to your AirPods case (where is that new case, Apple?), so it’s not totally zen, but who knows — maybe we’ll see that feature in a future version?  $144 Apple Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student.

Well, one workaround is buying a relatively inexpensive Bluetooth transmitter that you can plug into any 3.5mm audio jack. There are several transmitters available from TaoTronics and other little-known brands (I tried the TaoTronics). They cost $25-$35.To pair your AirPods with a transmitter you have to turn off the Bluetooth on your phone (or just put it into AirPlane mode), put your AirPods in their case, hold down the Bluetooth button on the transmitter until it goes into pairing mode and then hit the pairing button on the AirPods case.  See at Amazon AhaStyle Earbuds Ear Hooks $144 Apple Wireless Charging Case for AirPods See at Amazon CNET may get a commission from retail offers.

Well, when it’s one of the most popular products around like Apple’s AirPods, it tends to create its own accessory ecosystem, complete with supplementary cases and other add-ons that help overcome minor shortcomings that may be major for some people. Here’s a quick look at some of our top AirPods accessory picks, based on my own hands-on experience with each product mentioned over the past few weeks and months. They’re mostly cases and earbud enhancements, with a few other interesting things I’ve found.I’ll be adding more as new candidates appear.Disclaimer: CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of products featured on this page. Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross. Here’s how to clean it David Carnoy/CNET AirPods 2nd-generation: Not really 2.0, but definitely… Some people find AirPods fit so securely in their ears they can run with them. But other ears, like mine, aren’t perfect AirPod receptacles. And that’s where silicone cover options come in, including many that feature integrated earhooks or “sport fins.” I’ve used the EarBuddyz, which now come in a version 2.0, but you can find plenty of other similar options, including ones from AhaStyle and others that work with both EarPods and AirPods. They all cost around $10 for two or three sets of hooks.The only issue is that to get the AirPods back in their case you have to remove the fins and store them somewhere. That’s a nuisance, and you might want to invest in case that fits both the AirPods and EarBuddyz. The new AhaStyle ear hooks come with a little carrying pouch for the hooks but not for your AirPods. Why would we put a set of wired earbuds in a roundup of AirPods accessories? Well, if you don’t shell out for a Bluetooth transmitter (about $30), you won’t be able to use your AirPods on a plane to watch in-flight entertainment. Of course, you could ante up for an expensive set of noise-canceling headphones (you can see our top noise-canceling picks here), but it doesn’t hurt to have a cheap, good-sounding pair of wired headphones on hand. We’ve always liked the Panasonic ErgoFit RP-HJE120 earphones, which cost less than $10.  Sarah Tew/CNET Amazon Made of leather and equipped with a snap closing system, as well “loss-prevention” clip, Twelve South’s AirSnap case is a little bit of a different take on an AirPods case. It’s available in three color options for $25.  $159 5 If you don’t want to spend $79 on Apple’s Wireless Charging Case, a cheaper way to add wireless charging to your AirPods is the PowerPod ($30). The AirPods Wireless Charging case is better, but the PowerPod does work — and it protects your AirPods case. Not included: a wireless charging pad. The Belkin is shown here.  Comments Sarah Tew/CNET Review • AirPods 2019 review: King of truly wireless earphones crowned with small enhancements See at Amazon Belkin Panasonic Applelast_img read more

At local level, Chinese soccer teams teams have spent vast sums attracting leading international players and managerial talent, but the Chinese national team consistently struggles and will not be represented in Russia this year.Dalian Wanda, which has expanded from property into entertainment and sport, signed a deal in 2016 to be a partner of soccer governing body FIFA. That gave Wanda the highest level of sponsorship, and marketing rights to all FIFA competitions, including the next four World Cup tournaments. Youku, the video streaming platform controlled by Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, has partnered with China Central Television (CCTV) to stream the upcoming soccer World Cup.CCTV is the traditional broadcast home of World Cup soccer in China. The deal with Youku covers live streaming of 64 matches as well as off-game sidelights. Youku will be the only one of the big three streaming players to have the competition. Last summer Youku claimed 325 million monthly active users.The quadrennial soccer tournament is one of the world’s biggest media events and, in many countries, causes schedulers to avoid it or run counter-programming.

Recent articles on appropriate palliation and hospice have demonstrated positive effect that attention to planning end of life care can offer. One such study in oncology, a New England Journal of Medicine article by Temel JS et al, demonstrated over two months survival benefit to patients receiving less aggressive care in combination with symptom palliation in advanced non-small-cell lung cancer. Advance care planning can be an increasingly difficult conversation for physicians, patients and family members as the disease progresses, balancing the benefit of continued aggressive treatment with a realistic appraisal of the benefit. Via Oncology Pathways raises the topic of advance care planning early in the process before treatments begin to ensure the patient has the best chance to make well-informed and thoughtful decisions.The addition of the advance-planning feature prompts the oncologist to record whether the intent of a patient’s treatment was curative or non-curative, and whether that intent was discussed with the patient. Additionally, for all patients with late stage disease, hospice or palliative care is prioritized as a pathway consideration each time the physician sees the patient. The oncologist, however, always maintains control with respect to when and how to broach the conversation with a patient make choices for end-of-life care. Currently, D3’s Via Oncology Pathways cover more than 85 percent of cancer diagnoses and include chemotherapy and biologics, radiation therapy, prognostic testing, supportive care treatments and advance care planning. All aspects of the pathways are delivered through a Web-based, patient-specific, point-of-care decision support tool that integrates into the practice’s other information technologies. Additionally, advance care planning support is seamlessly built into the software to support the physician’s workflow.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Radiation Therapy | July 26, 2018 New RayCare and RayStation Releases on Show at AAPM RaySearch will exhibit its latest advances in radiation therapy treatment planning at the 60th American Association of… read more Videos | Artificial Intelligence | February 27, 2019 VIDEO: Example of AI-assisted Oncology Patient Record Dashboard Here is an example of new artific… read more Technology | May 04, 2011 Advance Care Planning Decision Support Included on Oncology Pathways News | Oncology Information Management Systems (OIMS) | April 20, 2018 Elekta Expands Mosaiq Oncology Information System With PalabraApps April 20, 2018 — Elekta announced that it is making a strategic investment in PalabraApps LLC to advance the developm read morelast_img read more

Metro Home Prices Surge Forward in Tight Market Conditions

first_imgAn uptick in home sales coupled scarce supply levels kept home prices on the rising path in the majority of metro areas during the first quarter of the year.The National Association of Realtors’ (NAR) latest quarterly report found that the median existing single-family home price increased in 87 percent of measured markets, or 154 out of 178 metros, in the first quarter compared to the first quarter of 2015. Only 24 areas, or 13 percent, saw home prices decrease.According to the NAR, more markets experienced home price gains in the first quarter of this year compared to last quarter’s gains in 81 percent of metro areas. Double-digit increases were observed in 28 metro areas (16 percent) in the first quarter, down from 30 areas in the fourth quarter of 2015 and 51 areas in the first quarter of 2015.Lawrence Yun, NAR Chief Economist said, “The solid run of sustained job creation and attractive mortgage rates below 4 percent spurred steady demand for home purchases in many local markets. Unfortunately, sales were somewhat subdued by supply and demand imbalances and broadly rising prices above wage growth. As a result, the path to homeownership so far this year remains strenuous for a segment of prospective buyers in the most competitive areas.”NAR’s five most expensive housing markets in the first quarter were the San Jose, California, metro area, where the median existing single-family price was $970,000; San Francisco, California, $770,300; Honolulu, Hawaii, $721,400; Anaheim-Santa Ana, California, $713,700; and San Diego, California, $554,300. Meanwhile, the five lowest-cost metro areas in the first quarter were Cumberland, Maryland, $67,400; Youngstown-Warren-Boardman, Ohio, $77,500; Decatur, Illinois, $83,300; Wichita Falls, Texas, $95,200, and Rockford, Illinois, $95,800.The report showed that the national median existing single-family home price in the first quarter was $217,600, up 6.3 percent from the first quarter of 2015 when the median price was $204,700. Existing-home sales also rose 1.7 percent to an annual rate of 5.29 million in the first quarter from 5.20 million in the fourth quarter of 2015, and are 4.8 percent higher than the 5.05 million pace during the first quarter of 2015.Inventory levels were at 4.3 months supply in the first quarter, down from 4.6 months a year ago, NAR reported. There were 1.98 million existing homes available for sale in the first quarter, which was below the 2.01 million homes for sale at the end of the first quarter in 2015.”In spite of deficient supply levels, stock market volatility and the paltry economic growth seen so far this year, the housing market did show resilience and had its best first quarter of existing-sales since 2007 (5.66 million),” Yun stated. “The demand for buying is there, but unless the stock of new and existing-homes for sale increases significantly–especially in several markets in the West–the housing market will struggle to reach its full potential.”Click here to view the full report. in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, Market Studies, News May 9, 2016 541 Views Metro Home Prices Surge Forward in Tight Market Conditionscenter_img Inventory Metro Home Prices NAR National Association of Realtors 2016-05-09 Staff Writer Sharelast_img read more
