Special zones for walkers: Nearly 20 places identified in Dellhi

first_imgNEW DELHI: Nearly 20 places, including two main railway stations, have been chosen by urban authorities under a new initiative for ‘enhancing walkability’ in the national Capital.The DDA recently had approved a draft policy for ‘enhancing walkability’ in the city, which will seek to identify vending zones, removal of encroachment from footpath, ensure plantation of trees for shading, installation of street furniture and signage, among other measures. Also Read – Bangla Sahib Gurudwara bans use of all types of plastic items”On a pilot basis, several sites shall be taken up under this initiative which include Old Delhi Railway Station, New Delhi Railway Station, Chandni Chowk, ITO Junction, Delhi University (North and South Campuses), all ISBTs, Hauz Khas-IIT Delhi, Nehru Place and Lajpat Nagar,” a senior official said. Other places are Uttam Nagar crossing, Bhikaji Cama Place, Karol Bagh, Saket-Malviya Nagar, Kamla Nagar, Lakshmi Nagar, Sector-21 Metro Station, Dwarka and Adhchini on Aurobindo Marg, he said. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murder”It was felt that on the basis of ‘ walkability plan for city of Chennai’, Delhi should also take steps in this direction by way of policy intervention and initiatives, wherein features like removal of encroachments from footpath, identifications of vending zones, shaded tree plantation, installation of street furniture and signages are suitably addressed,” the DDA said while approving the draft policy. The Delhi Development Authority said after various meetings and discussion with civic and urban bodies and the Delhi Metro, a draft policy on the initiative was prepared and it was shared with local bodies – PWD, Delhi Traffic Police and other authorities. The DDA had also said the draft policy will be placed in public domain for “three weeks for inviting comments” from the people. The initiative seeks to provide or improve pedestrian infrastructure so that more people walk across the city for leisure or health reasons. “It will include strengthening of existing pedestrian infrastructure in areas where it is ill-maintained or inadequate and development in areas where it is not presently available,” the official said. Provision of barrier-free footpaths and creation of a continuous pedestrian network as per principles of universal design, including integration with existing public places, parks, green areas and open spaces will also be part of the initiative.last_img read more

UN Security Council sends expert arms embargo mission to Somalia

The mission, led by the committee chairman, Bulgarian Ambassador Stefan Tafrov, comprised experts from Security Council member states.”The mission’s first stop will be Cairo where it will meet with the Secretary-General of the League of Arab States,” UN spokesman Fred Eckhard told the daily news briefing. “It will then proceed to Ethiopia, Djibouti, Yemen, Eritrea, Kenya and Italy, where it will hold meetings with high-ranking government officials and other interlocutors,” he said.Also on the agenda was a high-level meeting at the African Union in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and a meeting with representatives of Somalia’s leadership in Nairobi, Kenya. Ambassador Tafrov would brief the Security Council on the mission in early December, during the Bulgarian presidency of the Council.Earlier, the Council called on Somalia’s leaders to agree on a lasting solution to their conflict and to establish the framework for a viable government by working through a Leaders Meeting scheduled to take place in Kenya later this month. Angolan Ambassador Ismael Abraão Gaspar Martins, who holds the council’s monthly rotating presidency for November, read a statement thanking the leaders of Kenya and Uganda for their roles in the Intergovernmental Authority on Government (IGAD), which has been facilitating the negotiations.”The Security Council urges all Somali leaders to participate constructively in the Leaders Meeting planned by the IGAD Facilitation Committee in Kenya in November 2003 to bridge their differences and to reach agreements on a viable government and a durable and inclusive solution to the conflict in Somalia,” Mr. Martins said.Somalia has lacked a central government since 1991 when the government of President Siad Barre fell. The Somalia National Reconciliation Conference has been meeting in Mbagathi, Kenya, since October 2002. read more

Not the sugar severance draining the Govt its the extravagance Jagdeo

He ignores that. He ignores the fact that his Government, in [several] areas in which I pointed out to him…and to the public, in areas like celebration of National Events, [and] dietary in Government, just those two areas…the growth from 2015 to 2018 in the budget of those two activities of Government can pay all the severance of the sugar workers” he explained to media operatives.Jagdeo posited that should the Government revert to the 2014 budget for celebrations of National Events and dietary for one year, they would be able to pay the entire outstanding severance to all the estate workers.Moreover, the Opposition Leader lamented on the fact that when the President visited Berbice, despite knowing that close to 7,000 workers were placed on the breadline, he brought no sort of hope for them.“ He goes to Berbice, which is suffering…because 7,000 workers have been laid off and that’s what you tell them? Without any glimmer of hope for the future, you do not say we’re gonna work with you to try to find new jobs, we’re going to train you, we’re going to assist you by giving some subsidy like electricity that we spent $3B for in Linden that the rest of the country does that….he says nothing to bring hope to the people, just complains about the severance for sugar workers, which they are entitled to by law, that this is hemorrhaging the Government coffers. Absolutely no hope to those people.”Just recently, Canada’s largest Private Sector trade union, Unifor, had expressed deep concerns over Government’s handling of the sugar industry, particularly when it comes to ensuring that dismissed sugar workers are given their severance package in full.“I have never seen a Government that does something as little as taking someone’s severance, especially after losing their jobs. So, for us, this is a big issue. I mean if this was in Canada, I can assure that they could have gone to jail. It’s serious stuff. So, the Government needs to take this seriously,” Director for Human Rights and International Department at Unifor, Mohamad Alsadi, told this media group.Some 7000 sugar workers were dismissed on December 29, 2017, without severance being paid “on termination” as required by the law to all of them. Severance was paid in part to over 4000 of the 7000 dismissed sugar workers, with the remainder being promised at the end of this year.The Termination of Employment and Severance Pay Act stipulates that workers who are made redundant must be paid severance upon termination. read more

Thiess and RWE in landmark IPCC joint venture partnership

first_imgAustralia’s leading construction, mining and services contractor, Thiess and RWE Generation SE, one of Europe’s leading power generation and lignite miners have formed an exclusive partnership which the groups say “is set to deliver significant savings for high-volume continuous mining applications in Australia and overseas.” Thiess and RWE have formed a global joint venture (TRWE), becoming the first international JV to provide a full suite of in-house design, engineering, operation and maintenance services for open-pit Continuous Mining Equipment, including bucket wheel excavator systems and In-Pit Crushing and Conveying systems (IPCC). RWE had a delegation at the IM Events IPCC 2013 event in Cologne as well as hosting the field trip, but at the time the deal was still being finalised and approved.The joint venture combines “RWE’s internationally-renowned Continuous Mining Equipment (CME) engineering, operations & maintenance capability with Thiess’ proven, large-scale contract mining expertise to deliver low cost, sustainable continuous mining solutions.” Speaking at the joint venture signing ceremony, Thiess Managing Director Bruce Munro said the agreement launched Thiess into a new field of opportunity. “TRWE will provide services across the whole Continuous Mining value-chain, including full on-site operations, ensuring best practice performance of these low cost systems wherever we are engaged. Once TRWE operations are established in Australia and Indonesia, we are keen to leverage our existing international relationships and expand further into Asia and the Americas.” Back in 2011, IM interviewed Bruce Munro who stated back then that IPCC was an area being looked at as one of a group of new approaches/innovations beyond its core truck/shovel mining business, with one option being the mining group buying the IPCC system but Thiess operating it for them.RWE Vice President Wolfgang Kortmann who attended the ceremony, said the last five years has seen significant growth in the application of CME and IPCC equipment which has been accompanied by direct improvements in production efficiency. “Given the rising costs and declining productivity of some conventional mining applications in Australia, together with ongoing exposure to fluctuating commodity prices, a similar positive shift in the demand for these lower costs Continuous Mining systems in Australia and beyond is imminent,” Kortmann said. While dragline and truck/shovel applications will continue to be the major mining methods for many open-cut projects, deeper deposits will require more efficient technologies such as those offered by TRWE. The JV’s performance-based delivery model further enhances TRWE’s value proposition. The JV’s new General Manager Matthew Langmaid says he is truly excited by the global partnership. “RWE’s unique Continuous Mining technical and operational experience, together with Thiess’ proven capability to integrate large-scale projects and contract mining services, perfectly positions TRWE as the only global and vendor independent partner to the mining industry for continuous mining systems.”More detail on this development will be included in the in-depth IPCC article that will be published in the IM January 2014 issue.last_img read more

What killed Alexander the Great

first_imgFor thousands of years speculation regarding the fate of Alexander the Great and what indeed did kill him at the young age of 32 has given birth to hundreds of theories, from natural causes to secretly murdered through poisoning at a celebratory banquet. The mystery of why the Greek King of Macedon, ruler of the largest empire in the ancient world’s death has perplexed historians and scientists for over 2000 years. Now a New Zealand toxicologist claims that Alexander the Great may have been killed by toxic wine made from a poisonous plant. Dr Leo Schep, a toxicologist from New Zealand’s National Poisons Centre, says it is impossible that poisons such as arsenic were to blame – as cited in some theories – because death would have come too quickly. Alexander’s death in 323BC happened at the palace of Nebuchadnezzar II in Babylon after he developed a fever and was unable to speak and walk. He was ill for 12 days before dying. Dr Schep has been working on the mystery for over 10 years after he was approached by a team for a BBC documentary in 2003. His research argues that the most likely culprit was Veratrum album, a poisonous plant from the lily family also known as white or false hellebore. The plant was often fermented by the Greeks as a herbal medicine for inducing vomiting; importantly, it could account for the 12 days it took for the Great one to die. The diagnosis matches the account of Alexander the Great’s death written by ancient Greek historian Diodorus, who said he was struck with pain after drinking a large bowl of unmixed wine in honour of Hercules. “Veratrum poisoning is heralded by the sudden onset of epigastric and substernal pain, which may also be accompanied by nausea and vomiting, followed by bradycardia and hypotension with severe muscular weakness. Alexander suffered similar features for the duration of his illness,” the research, printed in the medical journal Clinical Toxicology says. “They asked me to look into it for them and I said, ‘Oh yeah, I’ll give it a go, I like a challenge’ – thinking I wasn’t going to find anything. And to my utter surprise, and their surprise, we found something that could fit the bill,” he told The New Zealand Herald. Dr Shep does however caution that despite his theory, the actual cause of death cannot be proven. “We’ll never know really,” he said.

Thimbleweed Park Is A Retro Adventure Game I Dont Hate

first_img ‘Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball FormSNES Games Officially Come to Nintendo Switch Stay on target If you have a Nintendo Switch, chances are you also have The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The new Zelda is a massive, phenomenal game that you can and should play for dozens of hours. But eventually, you’re going to want to play something new on your Nintendo console/handheld hybrid. Switch Games That Aren’t Zelda is a new column highlighting cool, smaller Switch games to check out once you’ve saved Hyrule.I don’t like adventure games. Along with roguelikes and games cribbing from Dark Souls, it’s a beloved gaming genre I’ve always been able to consistently write off. I respect the unique settings and emphasis on comedic storytelling that sets classics like Grim Fandango, Maniac Mansion, and The Secret of Monkey Island apart from other games. But I’ve just never had the patience for the slow pace, copious amounts of dialogue, and gameplay consisting of obscure puzzles.So Thimbleweed Park, a throwback to the Golden Age of adventure games made by LucasArts veterans Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, from the very beginning seemed like a game I would dislike. And like Strong Bad’s Cool Game For Attractive People, it’s a game I ultimately enjoy in spite of its adventure game elements, not because of them. But after playing the game on Nintendo Switch, I’ve come to appreciate the modern touches the game uses to keep this fascinating fossil relevant in a drastically different adventure game landscape.Thimbleweed Park’s humor and plot are literally its entire point, so I won’t say too much. But suffice it to say it fits right in with the irreverent, quirky, T-rated house style of the games it emulates. This ensemble piece has you unraveling the dark secrets of a quiet and quaint yet mysterious small town with a handful of different playable characters.There are some federal agents out of The X-Files (or Twin Peaks), a cursed vulgar clown, an aspiring game developer/pillow factory heiress, and a ghost with unfinished business. These characters and the weirdos they encounter are brought to life through appropriately tongue-in-cheek voice acting. I especially enjoyed the flashbacks that introduce the characters because they’re nice narrative curveballs as well as self-contained digestible sequences within the overall chapters, free from the anxious sprawl of a full, complex, and lengthy adventure game.The different playable characters also play into Thimbleweed Park’s smart structure for keeping narrative momentum up. You can’t die or run into any dead ends, and having different playable characters to hop between lets you feel like there is always something you can pursue somewhere. More characters can also let you perform tasks more efficiently. While controlling both agents, I had one talk to a fortune teller in need of some magic mushrooms, and as luck would have it, I had already parked the other agent near the swamp where the drugs grew. Some puzzles even require you to use several characters in tandem in creative, exciting, satisfying ways.The biggest way Thimbleweed Park keeps you on the right track without just telling you what to do (until you call the hint hotline) is by giving each character a to-do list. At any time you can go into your inventory and just read a list of things you need to do, plainly laid out, so you don’t get trapped in some endless puzzle tangent. Find the bloody wallet. Spruce up your clown afro. Apply for a job at MMucasFlem (great gag). It seems small, but always having at least some sense of what you should be working towards next relieves a lot of potential headaches caused by getting stuck and gives you a fair head start on puzzles.But honestly, the best choice the Thimbleweed Park developers made, the reason this is a retro adventure game I could actually stand, is the casual mode. This shorter, easier difficulty streamlines puzzles, making the story move forward more consistently. Instead of sussing out the combination to your own safe to get the money to buy back your joke book, just open the safe and buy back your joke back.Purists may balk, and if so they can stick to the more authentically old-school standard mode, but to me without concessions like this I would just resent the game for wasting my time or for making me follow a guide. The casual mode even admits that not everyone has the time or interest to put up with more nonsensical hoops to jump through. It’s like how Fire Emblem only became playable to me once they allowed for no permadeath. There’s no shame in avoiding difficulty that’s fake and cheap and frustrating and dumb.I suspect I’m not alone in thinking this. Adventures games are in a very different spot than they were in the vague 1987 Thimbleweed Park takes place in. Telltale Games may started by revisiting beloved LucasArts adventure game franchises, but the studio didn’t truly take off until The Walking Dead and its radical reinvention of the genre. Instead of guiding characters across prerendered screen picking up objects to smash together, these new episodic adventure games are cinematic choose-your-own-adventures forcing players not to solve puzzles but make harrowing branching moral decisions.Even adventure games not from Telltale are reacting to its impact. The spooky teen tale Oxenfree, also now available on Switch, has some puzzles but is way more interested in its quippy yet realistic overlapping youthful dialogue trees. The same goes for Firewatch, from former Walking Dead devs, starring everyone’s favorite Mad Man Rich Sommer.Obviously Thimbleweed Park doesn’t go that far. It’s much closer to an old adventure game than a new one. But the relaxed difficulty options to me seem to be an intelligent acknowledgement that some players now just prefer adventure games that get out of their own way and let the story be its own entertainment. It reminded me of how Sonic Mania feels like old Sonic games but is actually much better due to its subtle but fundamental modern tweaks.But one area where Thimbleweed Park is defiantly retro is in its visuals and controls. The pixelated vistas would feel right at home on an old Apple II or Amiga or whatever, and they convey a surprisingly moody overall atmosphere. Even through the lo-fi filter an eerie empty bus stop at night or a store full of glowing vacuum tubes look like what they are supposed to. And in one of the game’s constant meta winks at its own lineage, you can spot dozens of specks of dust to literally hunt pixels.Meanwhile, the controls give you trademark point-and-click adventure game options like “Walk,” Pick Up,” “Talk To,” and “Look At.” The interface itself still feels designed for a PC but the console controls try to be as intuitive as they can. For example, having the two analog sticks control the cursor at different speeds is a clever solution. On Nintendo Switch you can also just tap everything in handheld mode.Thimbleweed Park will be best enjoyed by actual fans of adventure games. Along with being able tolerate the tenuous puzzle philosophy of the more substantial standard mode, they’ll also understand the game’s numerous callbacks to adventure games past. The spellbook on Insult Swordfighting is surely one of the more shallow references.But it’s healthy for a game to reach out of its own niche, especially in a genre with a niche this hyper-specific. It’s the only way to draw in potential new fans. After surviving the crash of adventure games once, the creators of Thimbleweed Park seem to recognize the value of some added accessibility, and in doing so they made a retro adventure game I actually like playing.

Watch a Tesla Model 3 Get Assembled From Start to Finish

first_img Software Engineer Embedded Tesla Model 3 Key Fob In ArmTesla EV Catches Fire After Colliding With Tow Truck in Moscow Stay on target What does it take to put a luxury electric car together? Tesla recently shared a video showing workers — both human and machine — assemble each part of the company’s mid-priced Model 3 vehicle from start to finish.In a 42-second timelapse, Tesla documents the skeleton of a Model 3 vehicle going down the assembly line, while workers install each of its 10,000 parts to get it ready to hit the road.The Tesla Model 3, which was unveiled in March 2016, is built at the company’s factory in Fremont, California.Earlier this year, Tesla CEO Elon Musk spoke about the “production hell” issues revolving around the Model 3 assembly line, which is considered one of the most robotics-driven in the planet. Musk told CBS that the robots sometimes actually slowed down production.“We had this crazy, complex network of conveyor belts….And it was not working, so we got rid of that whole thing,” Musk said.Musk personally took over the Model 3 production line at the beginning of April. He told CBS he even resorted to pulling all-nighters at the plant and, at times, even sleeping at the factory.Photo Credit: TeslaThe video does show that Tesla has brought more human workers back to the assembly line, as several technicians can be seen assembling various parts during the timelapse.The Model 3 comes with the option of dual motor all-wheel drive, 20” performance wheels and brakes, and lowered suspension for total control, according to the Tesla website. The Model 3’s carbon fiber spoiler improves its stability at high speeds, and allows it to accelerate from 0-60 mph in as little as 3.3 seconds.More on Passengers Freak Out Over New Tesla Roadster’s Record-Setting AccelerationThe ‘World’s Smartest Motorcycle Helmet’ Puts Alexa and AR on Your HeadIs This Robotic Hotel Room on Wheels the Future of Travel?last_img read more

One More Blow for Reed

first_imgAfter pulling RBI off the block this week, London-based publisher Reed Elsevier received more bad news from an investor’s ratings service.Moody’s Thursday lowered its outlook for Reed from “stable” to “negative.” In its statement, Moody’s said it was concerned that without proceeds from a sale of RBI, the company might need to increase the amount of debt it will need to raise to refinance loans associated with its February acquisition of data provider ChoicePoint.As of last month, Reed was expected to extend the March 2009 deadline for refinancing half of the $4.17 billion loan it used to buy ChoicePoint. The company, of course, had planned to pay off a portion of the debt with proceeds from selling RBI. Meanwhile, Moody’s maintained Reed’s senior unsecured credit rating at “Baa1,” an investment grade level ranking, but said the company needs to take steps like manage discretionary expenses and conduct assets sales to maintain its rating.Not surprising, but this further illustrates the bumpy road ahead for Reed and RBI.last_img read more

Marvin Gaye Recreation Center Opens with Fanfare

first_imgBy Lenore T. Adkins, Special to the AFROPatty Robertson lives just two blocks away from the new Marvin Gaye Recreation Center in Ward 7 and she predicts it’ll become a second home of sorts. She’ll be bringing her niece and three grandchildren there often to enjoy the playground, learn arts and crafts, play games and use the computers.The recreation center also offers an opportunity for Robertson to embark upon a healthier lifestyle. She’s looking forward to sweating it out in the fitness center and taking advantage of the teaching kitchen. “I know how to cook basic stuff – I want to do healthy cooking,” Robertson, 52, told the AFRO, noting that she still cooks things in “grease.”Antwaun Gay, Marvin Gaye’s brother, stands in front of the recreation center during the opening ceremony. The famous singer added an “e” to his name later in life thus having a different spelling of “Gaye” than his brother and family. (Photo by Lenore Adkins)On May 5, D.C. officials cut the ribbon on the $14 million recreation center named after the Motown legend who grew up in the District and attended Cardozo High School. More than 1,000 people reserved their places for the event that felt like a block party and had people grooving and singing along to some of Gaye’s greatest hits.The two-story, environmentally friendly building boasts a music room, gallery space, tech lounge, a senior room with a floating balcony overlooking the Watts Branch and a community room. The grounds around the 72,000 square-foot building include a community garden, a basketball court and practice fields.The building replaces the small, one-story Watts Branch Recreation Center.Antwaun Gay, the singer’s youngest brother, told the AFRO he’s thrilled to see the building come to fruition. Plans were in the works for at least a decade. “It’s a perfect spot and I’m just glad it’s here in the community,” said Gay, now living in Fredericksburg, Va. “I just wish that he was here to see it, but it’s here.”The building is awash in local art. Its exterior offers a stenciled portrait of Gaye from Jamel Williams, a graduate of Howard University’s School of Architecture.You’ll find the singer’s visage inside the center too. Interior glass artist Shaunté Gates grew up in Southeast D.C., graduated from the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, and depicts Gaye in various stages of his musical career through etchings he created on the center’s glass walls.A 6’-5” statue of Gaye is currently being bronzed, said Vinnie Bagwell, the New York-based sculpture artist who created the statue. She used the singer’s image from “What’s Going On” the socially conscious album the singer cut after his older brother Frankie’s return from the Vietnam War.“That’s the quintessential Marvin Gaye album. It’s considered to be one of the greatest albums of all time,” Bagwell told the AFRO.Bagwell said the statue should be ready to go before June. Vincent Gray, the Ward 7 council member, can’t wait until the statue is ready to go up. “I hope that we’re going to have an event to be able to actually dedicate the statue of Marvin Gaye right here in his own neighborhood so we that can say ‘Marvin Gaye, you will always be a part of the landscape in the Northeast section of the District of Columbia.’”last_img read more

first_img Related Content August 1, 2014 — Carestream Health has shipped more than 9,000 DRX detectors since launching the Carestream DRX-1, a wireless X-ray detector that quickly and affordably retrofits existing X-ray rooms or portable diagnostic imaging systems from computer radiography (CR) to digital radiography (DR) technology, or powers new DR rooms and mobile systems. Carestream DRX systems and detectors are used in surgical suites, ER/ICU areas and radiology departments — as well as clinics, imaging centers, nursing homes and field military hospitals.These detectors deliver high-quality, affordable digital X-ray images in about five seconds.The company’s DRX systems help streamline workflow and improve patient care in both room and mobile environments. Carestream’s DRX-based portfolio includes: Carestream DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray Systems, Carestream DRX-1 Systems, Carestream DRX-Mobile Retrofit Kits, Carestream DRX-Evolution Systems, Carestream DRX-Transportable Systems, Carestream DRX-Ascend Systems and the Q-Rad-Digital DRX-Series from Quantum Medical Imaging that is sold through the company’s large dealer network in the United States and Canada. Quantum Medical Imaging is a division of Carestream.In addition to the DRX-1 detector, the DRX portfolio also includes the Carestream DRX-1C that utilizes cesium iodide technology and offers excellent image quality and improved DQE (detective quantum efficiency). The DRX-1C detector can be used to treat patients in trauma, orthopaedic and other clinical environments. Carestream’s newest cesium-iodide-based detector, the Carestream DRX 2530C, fits into pediatric incubator trays and is also used for orthopaedic and extremity imaging. The small-format DRX 2530C detector is intended for use with DRX-Revolution systems or DRX-Mobile Retrofit Kits for mobile imaging of neonatal and pediatric patients. It also can be used with DRX-Evolution and DRX-Ascend systems, as well as DRX-1 room retrofit systems, for orthopaedic applications and other tabletop exams that can benefit from a smaller detector.Patient care in ED, ICU, pediatric ICU and other environments can be enhanced with advanced Carestream software that uses a single exposure to produce a companion image with algorithms designed to accentuate specific devices or conditions. For example, the companion image can produce a clear view of tubes and PICC lines, display free air in the chest cavity or suppress the appearance of posterior ribs and clavicles to deliver a better view of soft tissue in the chest. Use of this software can help physicians deliver a higher level of patient care while simultaneously reducing the need for additional exposures.To maximize utilization and flexibility, Carestream’s DRX detectors can easily be moved to any DRX room or mobile DRX system — a feature referred to as the “X-Factor.” For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Digital Radiography (DR) | July 23, 2019 Konica Minolta and Shimadzu to Co-market Dynamic Digital Radiography in the U.S. Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc. along with Shimadzu Medical Systems USA announced a collaborative agreement to… read more Feature | Information Technology | June 27, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr Smart Algorithm Extracts Data from Radiology Reports Radiology reports may contain information essential to figuring out a patient’s condition. read more Videos | Radiographic Fluoroscopy (RF) | August 09, 2019 VIDEO: Demonstration of the Shimadzu FluoroSpeed X1 Radiographic Fluoroscopy System Shimadzu displayed the FluoroSpeed X1 conventional radiographic fluoroscopy (RF) system at the Association for Medica read more Technology | Radiographic Fluoroscopy (RF) | August 09, 2019 Shimadzu Medical Systems Receives FDA 510(k) for FluoroSpeed X1 RF System Shimadzu Medical Systems USA, a subsidiary of Shimadzu Corp., announced they have received U.S. Food and Drug… read more News | Digital Radiography (DR) | June 28, 2019 Springfield Clinic Deploys 17 Carestream Digital X-ray Systems Springfield Clinic implemented 14 Carestream DRX-Evolu read more News | August 01, 2014 Worldwide Shipments of Carestream’s Digital DRX X-ray Detectors Surpass 9,000 Units Company continues adding new DRX systems and advanced software features that help enhance X-ray exams Feature | Digital Radiography (DR) | July 19, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr DR Advances Promote Imaging of Whole Spine Recent advances in… read more center_img Shimadzu FluoroSpeed X1 Walkaround AHRA 2019Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:25Loaded: 11.42%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:25 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Gadchiroli,Development challenges in extremist affected areas? Howeverseveral questions arise Firstthere has apparently already been a lot of public expenditure During UPA-Ithere was a special development package of Rs 20000 crorespread over three years and concentrated on these 33 districts and another 22 contiguous ones Other than specific items (health centresschoolshostelsskill development)this encompassed housing through the Indira Awaas Yojana (IAY)roads through Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY)rural electrification through Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Vidyutikaran Yojana (RGGVY)employment through Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) and telecom through Bharat Nirman Government employees were given additional incentives for working in LWE areas There was also supposed to be splicing with MPLADS Other than drinking water (not explicitly covered)all other development activities proposed now were therefore already supposed to be covered If that public expenditure splurge did not workwhat makes us think the present one will To the extent information is availablethe Planning Commission now has a website on what is happening in these 34 districts on PMGSYNRHM (National Rural Health Mission)SSA (Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan)RGGVYMGNREGS and drinking water This makes for depressing reading and here are just two instances: 072 per cent of habitations in Khammam have been covered under PMGSY7 per cent of BPL households in Kanker have been covered under RGGVY It is a separate matter that this information is dated Information is missing If this new integrated action plan is being worked out by the Planning Commissionas has been reportedwhy cant it work with other ministries and departments to collate information first There has been another report that the Planning Commission will now become a Systems Reforms Commission Perhaps one should begin with 33 or 34 LWE districtshigh on everyones agenda To the extent that states have to offer matching grants on Central schemeswhy have these not been available Why has money available not been spent (utilised) When money is spentwhy has it not led to tangible improvement in outcomes Once upon a timebefore the merger of PWG and MCC in 2004the LWE movement used to work in silos and the merger seems to have increased synergy Why do government ministries and departments continue to work in silos Even more interestinglywhy is there this variation in efficiency of public expenditure across statesand within the same state across districts There is another question that is intellectually interesting and not much research attention seems to have been paid to this Roadselectricity and drinking water are important and so are povertyliteracyfemale work participation ratesetc On an average there is correlation between deprivation on these criteria and presence of LWE extremism Howeverthat is on an average Not every district that is so deprived has LWE violence and not every district that has LWE violence is relatively deprived to the same extent on these economic criteria Thereforein looking at simple correlations with economic backwardness or shares of tribal populationwe may be over-simplifying For instancebeyond economic backwardnessthere may be a sense of social and political marginalisationnon-existence of redress mechanismsbypassing by the law and order machinery Should one therefore have a centralised templateimposed top-down from Delhiand assume it will solve the problem Or should the integrated action plan evolve from belowfrom the level of districts There is no doubt Balaghat needs roads But that does not seem to be the primary issue for Aurangabad Rural electrification is important in Rayagadabut less so in Rohtas Beyond inherent inefficiency in government deliverythere is also a point about acceptability of such public expenditure programmes by LWE groups For exampleis it universally true (across all districts) that LWE groups accept MGNREGSbut resist developmental activities MGNREGS is an intriguing one On an averagethere is positive correlation between existence of LWE activity and larger shares of adult males in the population MGNREGS is known to have reduced out-migrationchiefly of the male variety Has it then also reinforced (instead of reducing) LWE violence The red corridor is also financed by a red economy and this is believed to thrive on 10-15 per cent leviesthe favourites being traders and construction companies If that is the caseroads delivered by private sector construction may be more acceptable than electricity and drinking waterdelivered essentially by the public sector In the former caselinkages presumably already existat least in some districtsperhaps explaining why road construction works better in Andhra than in Maharashtra At the level of researchthere is much we dont know and consequently resort to generalisations While in general development and governance deficits are issueswe need to disaggregate and decentralise plans
