South Korean violinist North Korean singer perform together in China

first_imgShanghai: A South Korean violinist and a North Korean singer on Sunday held a rare joint performance they hope would help bring the divided Koreas closer together via music especially at a time of emerging tensions amid deadlocked nuclear diplomacy. Violinist Won Hyung Joon and his North Korean soprano partner, Kim Song Mi, performed together at Shanghai Oriental Art Center with a Chinese orchestra. Their concert came three days after South Korea said North Korea fired two suspected short-range missiles toward the sea in the second such weapons test in five days.

They met several times last year in Beijing and agreed on a joint performance to help promote peace on the Korean Peninsula. As a duet, Kim sang Antonin Dvorak’s “Songs My Mother Taught Me” while Won played the violin. Kim later sang “Arirang,” a Korean traditional folk tune beloved in both countries, while the Shanghai City Symphony Orchestra played the music.

North and South Korean musicians performing together are extremely rare as their governments don’t even allow their citizens to exchange phone calls, letter and emails without special approvals. Last year saw an unusual wave of cross-border exchanges after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un abruptly entered talks on the fate of his advancing nuclear arsenal. A group of North Korean dancers and singers performed in South Korea during the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, before South Korean K-pop stars flew to Pyongyang and sang in the presence of Kim and his young wife Ri Sol Ju.last_img read more

Bosnian Serb expoliceman gets 18year jail sentence from UN war crimes court

The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), located at The Hague, sentenced Ranko Cesic, 39, after he pleaded guilty to six counts of crimes against humanity and six counts of violating the laws or customs of war.Mr. Cesic admitted to killing 10 men and forcing two brothers to perform oral sex on each other during a 32-day period while he was either a Bosnian Serb police officer or a member of the Bosnian-Serb Territorial Defence group.The crimes occurred at either the Luka detention camp, near the town of Brcko in northeast Bosnia and Herzegovina, or in the Brcko Partizan Sports Hall.In one case, Mr. Cesic ordered a man to say goodbye and shake hands with other detainees at the Luka camp before taking him outside and beating him to death.The judges said the depravity and cruelty of Mr. Cesic’s behaviour and the fact that all the victims were vulnerable detainees under the supervision of Mr. Cesic and others were aggravating factors in his case.But they said Mr. Cesic’s guilty plea, remorse and cooperation with prosecutors were mitigating factors and determined that an 18-year jail term would be appropriate. read more

An economic assessment of mineral developments within the Woomera Prohibited Area WPA

first_imgAs part of the Australian Government’s review into security and economic interests in the WPA, the Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism commissioned ABARE-BRS to investigate the potential economic impacts of mine developments within the WPA. Using ABARE-BRS’s AusRegion model, this report investigates the impact eight separate hypothetical mine developments in the WPA could have on key economic variables such as GDP, exports and employment at the national and South Australian level.ABARE notes: “The mining sector is important to the Australian economy. It is a large contributor to economic growth and export earnings, and is a significant employer in regional Australia. The capacity of the sector to contribute to Australia’s future economic growth largely depends on its ability to continually develop new mineral deposits. A potential location of future mine developments in Australia is the Gawler Craton basin located in central South Australia. However, a large part of the basin lies within the WPA, a globally unique military testing range of strategic interest to the Australian Government.“The potential for conflicting land use demands arising from mine developments within the WPA is an example of how the benefits of mining activity need to be considered against the environmental, social, cultural and security costs associated with such activity. This report is intended to assist the Australian Government in understanding the potential economic benefits of a wide range of potential mining developments within the WPA.”Download a copy of the report at read more

Glif the last iPhone 4 stand youll ever need

first_imgThe role of the phone has changed significantly since smartphones entered the mainstream. No longer is a handset just for making calls and sending text messages. They have high megapixel cameras, video recording capabilities and video-calling, they playback music and HD premium content such as movies, and have app stores full of useful utilities and games.Some of those features, in particular watching media and shooting photos or video, can benefit from having a stand or tripod. But in a lot of cases you end up having multiple add-ons for different scenarios. You need a prop stand for watching video, but a tripod-friendly stand for video capture without the hand shake. That stand for watching video may not allow your phone to stand vertically for video calling, so that’s another stand or a tired hand holding your device for each call. This adds to the bulk you have to carry around and ups the chance of you losing something, or just makes using certain features more of a pain.The Glif aims to solve these problems for iPhone 4 owners by being every stand or mount you’ll ever need in one tiny accessory. It’s a Kickstarter project that went from idea to finished product in just 5 months, and became available at the end of November last year.The beauty of the Glif is that it’s so small and lightweight, but at the same time manages to cater for many different needs. It can:Screw on to camera tripods using brass thread (with the iPhone horizontal or vertical)Prop up your iPhone verticallyProp up your iPhone horizontallyAct as a antenna guardIt does all that while holding your iPhone securely yet remaining easy to just slide off the handset.This promotion video was made for the original Kickstarter funding drive where inventors Tom and Dan asked for $10,000. In the end they received $137,417 showing how much people wanted this stand:So how much do you have to pay to get this multi-pupose iPhone 4 accessory? Just $20. Not bad for a device that can replace several other accessories that no doubt cost a lot more when you total it up.Here’s a final video showing how the Glif stand is made:If you’ve picked up a Glif let us know how useful you’re finding it and if it really is the last stand you’ll ever need to buy for your iPhone.Read more at The Glif bloglast_img read more

Following the general elections last month, Acting Parliament Registration Commissioner, Charles Albury says his department was already in preparation mode for the upcoming Local Government polls. The date has not been set yet.There are a total of 32 local government districts, 13 second-schedule districts and 19 third-schedule districts.  Local government is administered through the Office of the Prime Minister.Consultant at the Department, Mr.Harrison Thompson described the process of electing council members during the local government polls, “council members are elected to govern from the town committee. From the town committee there’s a designated number of council members for each district, except in Grand Bahama where they will vote directly for council members as opposed to committee members. From the town committee, you are eligible to be council on most of the islands”, end quote.The last Local Government Polls held in June 2011 and saw 391 positions contested.last_img read more

Beacocks artistry attitude resound

first_imgDid you know?Dale Beacock was among the first 126 members named to the Washington Music Educators Association Hall of Fame in 1998, along with Vancouver colleagues Jack Francis and Adair Hilligoss.Dale Beacock’s roles as musician, educator and businessman were celebrated Friday at Clark College by an overflow crowd of family, friends and former students.His dad always loved a packed house, Russ Beacock said. And with people lined up along the walls of Gaiser Hall and clustered in open doorways, “He’d look around and say, ‘Standing-room only: Cool!’”Even though the 81-year-old Beacock died Aug. 4 in a bicycling accident, his voice helped open the memorial service at Clark College.As the closing notes of “Stars and Stripes Forever” faded, video screens in Gaiser Hall showed a 2008 oral history in which Beacock discussed facets of his career. It included a total of seven years in U.S. Army and Navy bands, when he played alongside musicians from big-name bands of the day.“You practiced every day — or you shipped out,” he recalled. “And it happened fast. I was motivated to practice.”After leaving the service, Beacock taught in local schools. In his first year in 1956, Beacock said, he was able to negotiate his $3,700 contract up to $3,850. That’s for a year, he noted. He spent 15 years as band director at Clark College before retiring to focus on the family business.last_img read more

To get that functionality, you need to spring for the Enhanced DVR.Many users see commercial skipping as a must-have for any DVR. Adding it brings the monthly price of Hulu with Live TV up to $60, which is more expensive than the basic tier of any other live TV service.

To upgrade, you’ll need to create a new account and/or lose the bundle.What’s it like to use?02-hulu-live-tvGo directly to the Kardashians. Do not pass go. Do not pay $45. Sarah Tew/CNET Of all of the live TV services I’ve used, Hulu’s interface has the most radical design, but I liked it the least. As soon as you open Hulu with Live TV, the home page shows you just four-and-a-half shows at a time — a tiny number compared to all of the choices on Hulu — and other tabs are similarly limited, with too much wasted space. If you’ve used Hulu before, then you’ll notice that Live TV adds two new tabs to the existing Home, Browse, Search and Profile — these are My Stuff (DVR) and Live TV. I also dislike the two rows of different tabs at the top, which makes it more confusing to navigate. The first sub-tab on the home page is called Hulu Picks. Unlike Netflix’s suggestions, it seems to simply push whatever the hell Hulu feels like showing. On my account, it was the same five shows regardless of the profile chosen  — the Kardashians and the Good Fight — and these only disappeared if the particular profile had been created as a kid’s one. Hulu’s guide is the least-usable of any other streaming service out there. It again displays just four-and-a-half rows on each page and there’s no 14-day guide to browse upcoming shows. The Roku/Fire TV interface only shows you the next show on the selected channel. You need to scroll down ad infinitum to see what’s playing next. Meanwhile, Apple TV does lets you flick through and see more for the rest of the day — but the current show still takes up most of the available space. 05-hulu-live-tv Sarah Tew/CNET Likewise recording to the DVR is a pain — you can only do it from the guide and not while watching a show. You need to enter the guide and either long-press the middle button (Apple/Roku) or press the hamburger button and click record. Every other DVR-available service lets you record straight from the timeline, or at least while the show is still playing.Should you get it?If you’re a Hulu fan, like the mix of channels and don’t need a DVR with commercial skipping, then Live TV could be what you’re looking for. That is, if the interface doesn’t drive you bonkers. If you are looking for a premium live TV service, YouTube TV is worth the extra $5 per month over Hulu. Its channel offering is better, its DVR is more robust, and its interface is much easier to use.

International crisis French President on Amazon wildfires

first_imgParis: French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday said wildfires in the Amazon were an “international crisis” and called on this weekend’s G7 to address the issue. “Our house is burning. Literally. The Amazon rainforest — the lungs which produces 20 per cent of our planet’s oxygen — is on fire. It is an international crisis. Members of the G7 Summit, let’s discuss this emergency first order in two days!” Macron said on Twitter. Also Read – Pakistan test-fires 290-km range missile Advertise With Us Our house is burning.

Members of the G7 Summit, let’s discuss this emergency first order in two days! #ActForTheAmazon— Emmanuel Macron (@EmmanuelMacron) August 22, 2019The French president, who tweeted in French and English, is the latest international figure to raise the alarm over the raging wildfires in the Amazon. Earlier, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said he was “deeply concerned” by the wildfires that have blanketed several Brazilian cities in thick smoke. “In the midst of the global climate crisis, we cannot afford more damage to a major source of oxygen and biodiversity,” he said on Twitter. Also Read – Imran calls on Pakistanis to take part in ‘Kashmir Hour’ Advertise With Us “Amazon must be protected.” Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro is facing growing criticism over his anti-environment rhetoric, which activists blame for emboldening loggers, miners and farmers in the Amazon. On Thursday he denied his policies were to blame for the fires, but said Brazil was suffering an “environmental psychosis” which was hampering development. Nearly 73,000 fires were recorded between January and August this year, compared with 39,759 in the first eight months of 2018, the embattled National Institute for Space Research (INPE) said Monday. Advertise With Us That is the highest number of forest fires for any year since 2013 and follows two years of declines. Norway on Thursday joined Germany in halting Amazon protection subsidies, accusing Brazil of turning its back on the fight against deforestation. Attention on the issue coincides with a UN regional meeting on climate change in Brazil ahead of a December summit in Chile. Macron will from Saturday host meetings with leaders of the G7 — which comprises the US, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Canada — in the southwestern resort town of Biarritz.last_img read more

Marcela Bohm-Velez, M.D., and her colleagues from Associates in Pittsburgh, Pa., shared preliminary results from a prospective study on low-dose MBI, specifically breast-specific gamma imaging (BSGI), at the SNM Breast Cancer Imaging: State of the Art 2011. Their results suggest it may be possible to reduce the radiation dose patients receive from a BSGI procedure by up to 60 percent.The tracer used in this procedure, Technetium Tc99m Sestamibi (MIBI), has commonly been used in cardiac studies for years and was cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in the mid-1990s for diagnostic breast imaging. The recommended dose (20–30 mCi) was established using an older, larger, less sensitive whole body imaging system. Newer breast-optimized imaging systems have an inherently higher photon sensitivity that may allow a lesser dose to be used. At the Weinstein Imaging Center, BSGI has become a valuable diagnostic tool, especially for patients with dense breast tissue that limits the effectiveness of mammography. “In order to optimize care and use BSGI to screen specific populations, we wanted to examine the possibility of using a lesser dose,” said Bohm-Velez. “The present challenge for the clinician is that the use of lower doses is currently an off-label use of the pharmaceutical.” Their study compared breast tissue uptake at low-dose levels of 5, 10 and 15 mCi to those obtained with the conventional 20 mCi (740 MBq) injections. According to Bohm-Velez, “Although these are early results, we were quite surprised to see that we can reduce the dose to 15 mCi without any substantial impact on breast tissue uptake or image quality. In addition, a 10 mCi image still provided a very good, clinically viable image. The good news is that at lower doses, the breast tissue uptake is still sufficient; leading us to believe that a dose of 8 mCi is likely possible with the current instrumentation.” Bohm-Velez also mentioned current investigations are underway at the University of Virginia to potentially allow doses as low as 2–4 mCi to be used, making the radiation dose a patient receives from a BSGI/MBI study equivalent to that from a mammogram. According to Bohm-Velez, “The next steps are to gain the funding needed to expand this to a multicenter trial, investigate the impact of these optimizations and hopefully, in the end, change the drug insert package to include low-dose breast imaging.” For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Neuro Imaging | August 16, 2019 ADHD Medication May Affect Brain Development in Children A drug used to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) appears to affect development of the brain’s… read more Related Content News | PET-CT | August 15, 2019 United Imaging Announces First U.S. Clinical Installation of uExplorer Total-body PET/CT United Imaging announced that its uExplorer total-body positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) system… read more Image courtesy of Imago Systems News | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 06, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Improves Heart Attack Risk Assessment When used with a common heart scan, machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence (AI), does better than… read more News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more News | May 19, 2011 Latest Clinical Evidence Supports Promising Outlook for Low-Dose Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI) 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.

Costa Rica deports 12 US students in language school dispute

first_imgWorking at a language school in Costa Rica may sound like a dream short-term job. But before signing any contract, ask first whether you’d be expected to hide in the bathroom if immigration police show up.On Feb. 26 Immigration Police raided the Máximo Nivel language school in the San Pedro neighborhood of San José. In all, 12 U.S. tourists between 18 and 21 years old were ordered to hand over their passports and report to the Immigration Administration to verify their status in Costa Rica.The 12 tourists who studied and taught at the school were informed last week that they had 72 hours to leave Costa Rica, Immigration Administration spokeswoman Andrea Quesada told the Tico Times.Authorities allege that the students were working as instructors without proper work permits, in violation of Costa Rican immigration law.Máximo Nivel’s owner, Ken Jones, said that the 12 individuals were studying and doing community service in Costa Rica, not working.Still, former Máximo Nivel employees told The Tico Times that the company has hired international tourists to work under the table in the past, and asked them to hide their status — literally — from authorities.Two former Máximo Nivel employees, who agreed to speak to The Tico Times on the condition that they remain anonymous, said they knowingly worked under the table for the language school for months at a time without formal work permits. The sources asked to remain anonymous because of their relationships with current Máximo Nivel staff.Both former employees said people working illegally at Máximo Nivel had been asked to hide in a back room when government inspectors arrived.One of the employees said she was told to go out a side door and not come back to work on a day when inspectors arrived.She said Máximo Nivel employees without work permits were told by management that they were responsible for maintaining a legal tourist visa, which involved leaving the country every 90 days, but that the company would not sponsor a work permit. The former employee, who began working for Máximo Nivel in 2013, shared her job offer from the language school with The Tico Times. The offer was sent from Jones’ Máximo Nivel email account.One clause reads: “It is important to note that you will be working in Costa Rica without the benefit of proper work visas and residence permits. You and I have discussed this and you understand that you are responsible for keeping yourself ‘legal’ during your time in Costa Rica.”Jones denied the alleged subterfuge, and said he wasn’t aware of employees being asked to hide from immigration authorities.“None of that is something that I would have knowledge of. It sounds funny,” Jones told The Tico Times.He said that all his staff are legally employed.Máximo Nivel advertises courses taught by native English speakers on its website. The school offers English and Spanish classes, and language teaching certification. Máximo Nivel also organizes homebuilding, environmental conservation and healthcare volunteer opportunities for students.Jones said that instructors are typically students seeking certification to teach English as a foreign language, known as TEFL. Part of that certification involves a teaching component but students are not paid, Jones said.Students typically attend Máximo Nivel’s TEFL courses on a tourist visa, he said, which was the individual student’s decision. Costa Rica does offer student visas, but immigration law requires a letter of acceptance from an academic institution in order to apply for one.When asked what kind of work permits Máximo Nivel offered its international staff and how staff were compensated for work, Jones declined to comment, saying the company’s human resource policy was confidential.“We’re very careful about not compensating people for work they do in Costa Rica,” Jones said, “We’re not illegally employing anybody.”Jones said that Máximo Nivel contributes $10,000 monthly to the Costa Rican Social Security System, commonly referred to as the Caja, and provides $350,000 to local host families for students annually.One of the former employees who spoke to The Tico Times specifically referenced the school’s community service opportunities as one of the reasons they chose to work there, regardless of the lack of legal immigration status.The Immigration Administration has taken a hard line on the status of the 12 individuals rounded up at Máximo Nivel in February.“Someone who comes to Costa Rica on a tourist visa only has permission to, well, be a tourist here,” Quesada, the Immigration spokeswoman said in a telephone interview.She noted that there are specific visas for tourism, study and volunteering. Even if someone is teaching English at the beach for a summer, they are legally required to have a work permit, she said.A tourist can request to change his or her immigration status while in the country, Quesada pointed out. She also said there are work permits for short-term employment available that take less time to get than the lengthy process for obtaining residency.But some employers may not be fully versed in Costa Rican immigration law.Anna Karina, a lawyer with the firm Arias & Muñoz and director of the Costa Rican-American Chamber of Commerce’s Human Resources Forum, said some firms are unaware of the various options for work permits and visas. Others simply may not be willing to commit the time and resources to get them, she said.If businesses in Costa Rica plan on hiring foreign nationals on a regular short-term basis, they should consider registering as a “known business,” or empresa reconocida, with the Immigration Administration, Karina said in an email. The human resources expert said that this step can help cut application times for new foreign workers.Karina acknowledged that Costa Rica’s immigration laws can be labyrinthian and recommended hiring a lawyer who’s knowledgable about the system.Despite the inconvenience, the 12 people rounded up at Máximo Nivel in February were told that they could re-enter Costa Rica as tourists. The Immigration Administration has not taken any additional sanctions against them or Máximo Nivel, according to an email from Immigration Administration spokeswoman Andrea Quesada.It’s hardly just language schools that hire employees under the table. According to the most recent State of the Nation report, more jobs were created in Costa Rica’s informal sector — jobs without government-mandated healthcare, vacation time or legal work status — than in its formal sector in 2013.The 2014 National Housing Survey reported that more than one in three middle and upper class Costa Ricans surveyed work in the informal sector. That number jumped to 72 percent for those living in poverty.Working under the table is common for tourists looking to scrape together enough cash for a longer stay on Costa Rica’s beaches, and for some perpetual tourists who have made a life for themselves here, but never formalized their residency. But it’s still illegal.

him the President has not lived up to his assertion during his inauguration in 2015 that he belongs to nobody Speaking with Punch the elder statesman noted that the Igbos do not want special treatment but fair sharing in the scheme of things in the country He said “Chief Olusegun) Obasanjo was president of Nigeria Was IPOB fighting him Was MASSOB (Movement for the Sovereign State of Biafra) fighting him Was Biafra being promoted (Former President Umaru) Yar’Adua was also from the North (Dr Goodluck) Jonathan spent over four years as the president of Nigeria During his time did you hear

former president Goodluck Jonathan during his tenure the elder statesman recalled that many Igbos held high positions in the last administration His words “In Nigeria no person from the South-East has been president The South-East gave him (Jonathan) all the votes it could give him Even for a second term they stood by him without looking back Yes our roads were not taken care of yet we had our sons
