Adityanath to celebrate Diwali with Vantangiya community

By on November 17, 2019

first_imgGorakhpur (UP), Oct 28 (PTI) Following the 25-year-old practice, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will celebrate Diwali with the Vantangiya community in Jangal Tinkoniya here. Though the schedule of the chief minister’s visit has not been finalised yet but according to sources, Adityanath will come to Gorakhpur on November 6 evening, after celebrating ‘Chhoti Diwali’ in Ayodhya. On November 7, the chief minister will visit Vantangiya villages for Diwali celebration. “For the last 25 years, Adityanath has been celebrating Diwali with Vantangiya children and continued the practice even after being elevated as chief minister of the state in 2017,” Gorakhnath Temple staff Vinay Gautam said. “Children of the Vantangiya community started calling him ‘toffee wale baba’. The chief minister will celebrate this Diwali with them,” he said. Ahead of the chief minister’s visit, Village Development Commissioner N P Singh held a meeting with officials and ordered them to open ration shops in the villages. The Vantangiya community comprises people who were brought from Mayanmar to plant trees for afforestation during the colonial rule. Last year on Diwali, Adityanath declared five Vantangiya villages as revenue villages. He, on the occasion, distributed sweets, fruits and textbooks among the children. He also distributed wheelchairs to the differently-abled Vantangiyas. The chief minister had also directed officials to present proposals before the state government for making primary schools, aaganwaadi centres, sports fields, drinking water arrangements, cremation spot and grazing land available to the community.

India concerned over resolutions at UNHRC

By on October 8, 2019

Samarasinghe said that already several African and Islamic countries have expressed support to Sri Lanka in the event the US sponsored resolution is presented. India says it is concerned that the recent trend of country specific resolutions may well end up weakening the constructive dialogue and corporative approach which has prevailed so far in the UN Human Rights Council.Without making any direct reference to any country against which a resolution is to be presented at the ongoing session of the UNHRC, the Indian envoy who addressed the council today (Thursday) said that the promise shown by the council since its inception as the premier organ of the UN dealing with human rights must be preserved. Sri Lanka is one of the countries against which a resolution is expected to be presented at the ongoing UNHRC session and Minister Mahinda Samarasinghe had said this week that Sri Lanka is hopeful of India’s support against the resolution. read more

US current account deficit widens 147 per cent in OctoberDecember quarter to

The Commerce Department reports on the U.S. current account trade deficit for the October-December quarter on Thursday, March 19, 2015. (AP Photo/Nick Ut, File) WASHINGTON – The deficit in the largest measure of U.S. trade widened in the October-December quarter to the biggest imbalance in more than two years as exports of goods fell at a faster pace than imports.The Commerce Department said Thursday that the deficit in the current account increased to $113.5 billion, an increase of 14.7 per cent from a third quarter deficit of $98.9 billion.For the entire year, the current account deficit rose 2.6 per cent to $410.6 billion. It was the largest annual deficit since 2012.A widening trade deficit contributed to the slowdown in overall economic growth in the fourth quarter and is expected to be a drag on growth in 2015 as the stronger dollar makes American products less competitive on overseas markets.Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist at Capital Economics, said that the current account deficit will likely narrow in the first quarter, reflecting lower prices for imported oil, but then start rising for the rest of this year.“The stronger dollar and the relative weakness of economic growth outside the United States suggests the deficit will gradually widen” for the rest of 2015, Ashworth said.The current account is the broadest measure of trade. It covers not only goods and services but also investment flows.The fourth quarter deficit was the largest since the second quarter of 2012. The latest deficit amounted to a level equal to 2.6 per cent of the total economy, up from 2.2 per cent in the third quarter.The rise in the goods deficit reflected a 1.2 per cent drop in goods exports to $410.1 billion. The decline was led by drops in exports of U.S. petroleum and autos. Imports of goods were also down but by a smaller 0.1 per cent to $595.3 billion. The import decline reflected lower petroleum imports. The drop in exports and imports of petroleum reflected big decreases in energy prices.A widening trade deficit was a drag on the economy in the final three months of the year, subtracting 1.1 percentage point from growth, helping to slow overall growth, as measured by the gross domestic product to just 2.2 per cent, down from growth at a 5 per cent rate in the July-September quarter.Economists say the trade gap will widen further in 2015 as a rising value of the dollar cuts into foreign sales by American producers. The stronger dollar makes U.S. products more expensive in foreign markets.The overall economy, however, is expected to do better this year as strong employment growth boosts incomes and consumer spending.On Wednesday, the Federal Reserve kept a key interest rate unchanged near a record low of zero, where it has been for the past six years. However, the Fed modified its policy statement by no longer saying it planned to be “patient” in deciding when to raise interest rates.But Fed Chair Janet Yellen told reporters that just because the Fed had dropped the word “patient” did not mean the central bank would now become “impatient.” The Fed did say it did not expect to raise rates at its next meeting in April but many economists believe the first rate hike could come as early as the Fed’s June meeting.

Couple seeking cash for holiday sickness binged on 109 drinks in nine

By on September 25, 2019

first_img“The night after the onset of the illness, cocktails and spirits were consumed. Two days after the onset of the illness, a very significant quantity of beers were consumed during the afternoon and spirits in the evening.” A total of 109 drinks were consumed over a nine-day period, Jet2holidays said. The Government and the police are increasingly concerned about a surge in the number of false holiday sickness claims. Travel association Abta says there has been a four-fold increase made by British tourists since 2013, in part driven by ambulance-chasing claims companies.Jet2holidays CEO Steve Heapy is now calling on the Government to crack down on “food bug fraudsters”. Two British tourists who claimed to have been “bed-ridden” by an “acute illness” in an attempt to claim compensation from a holiday company actually spent the week consuming large quantities of alcohol. The behaviour of the unnamed couple from Liverpool in Gran Canaria in 2015 was exposed by investigators instructed by Jet2holidays and the all-inclusive hotel Gloria Palace after the pair attempted to sue for damages.Both Jet2holidays and the four-star hotel said they heard no complaint from the pair during the stay or in the immediate wake of the holiday, but more than a year later received a letter from a claims management law firm demanding compensation for food poisoning, stating that an illness begun on the second day of a 12-day holiday had left the couple suffering “stomach cramps and severe diarrhoea” and “bed-ridden during an acute period of illness…[that] spoiled the rest of the holiday”. Majorca has also been cited as a hotbed of false claimsCredit:bbsferrari – Fotolia/Sergey Dzyuba "The night of the alleged onset of the illness, at least six shots of spirits and mixers were consumed." We risk the actions of the dishonest few spoiling the plans of many British holidaymakersJet2holidays CEO Steve Heapy But Jet2holidays found evidence of a different version of events.“In the course of investigating the claim with the hotelier, it has come to light that their records show that the customers continued to enjoy a range of alcoholic drinks throughout the time of their illness,” said the operator.“The night of the alleged onset of the illness, at least six shots of spirits and mixers were consumed.center_img Majorca has also been cited as a hotbed of false claims “We want our customers to have a great holiday and to continue to enjoy the benefits of all-inclusive. But the danger is that these fake holiday poisoning claims put the all-inclusive holiday at risk,” he said.“The sharp rise in the number of sickness claims is costing hoteliers and travel companies dearly, and it’s frustrating when so many are made a year or more after the holiday has ended. We risk the actions of the dishonest few spoiling the plans of many British holidaymakers.“My message is simple. No one cares more about you on holiday than us. If you have a problem on holiday, we are there for you and we take genuine claims very seriously. “The night of the alleged onset of the illness, at least six shots of spirits and mixers were consumed.” “But the food bug fraudsters are fooling customers into thinking they can make a claim even when they weren’t ill without any consequences, which is not true. These are the same guys that made so much money out of whiplash cases. I’m calling on the Government to crack down on the food bug fraudsters.”Earlier this month, detectives at the City of London police confirmed they were assessing material handed to them regarding false sickness claims to see whether criminal prosecutions could be sought.Such claims have the potential to raise insurance premiums and are costing holiday resorts and hotels millions of pounds each year. In Spain alone it is estimated to cost resorts more than £50 million annually, while tour operators in Mallorca have estimated that claims involving stomach illnesses increased by 700 per cent in the past year. Holiday prices could be hiked to combat the extra cost, while some tour operators have even suggested they might stop offering all-inclusive packages to Britons.The typical payout for a sickness claim is somewhere between £1,000 and £2,000, which is above the threshold for it to be considered a small claim (that threshold is £1,000).last_img read more

Harrison Ford Must Die

By on September 20, 2019

first_imgStay on target Dear Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars, Let Directors DirectMy Complicated Relationship with Gender and Star Wars Since 1983, celebrated actor Harrison Ford has been begging for death… in Star Wars. After Han Solo was frozen at the end of The Empire Strike Back, Ford famously tried to convince George Lucas to kill the character off before the final film in the trilogy. But the gambit failed, and Ford had to waste his time playing a still-alive Solo throughout Return of the Jedi’s entire run-time.However, in 2015 J.J. Abrams gave Ford the one gift Lucas never good, a sweet death. To complete his role as the Obi-Wan of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Solo died at the hands of a fallen student of the Force he once loved. Fans may have cried over this tragic death of a beloved character, but Ford must’ve been thrilled. He was dead, finally! All he had to do was risk dying in real-life after the Millennium Falcon door crushed his leg on set.Why stop at Star Wars? In-between (allegedly) smoking enormous amounts of pot, Harrison Ford is still appearing in a lot of movies. Some of those movies are sequels to older movies he’s starred in, and that means they’re movies he can be killed off in. We can’t let an opportunity to kill Harrison Ford (in a movie) pass us by. Let’s make him the Sean Bean of dying in sequels. Here are just a few suggestions for any filmmakers reading.Blade Runner 2049We just got our first look at the upcoming sequel to the cyberpunk classic Blade Runner. Ryan Gosling plays a new Blade Runner tasked with locating Harrison Ford’s character, Rick “May or May Not be a Robot” Deckard. With a young new star already lined up, killing off Ford here would be a totally justifiable move. Hopefully, he spouts a bunch of nonsense right before he dies like Roy Batty.Indiana Jones 5First off, the world doesn’t need a second unnecessary adventure of old Indiana Jones. Even with Disney in control, it’s time to let this franchise go already. However, the one thing this upcoming fifth entry could do to justify itself is, you guessed it, kill Harrison Ford. Indy already gets into life-threatening danger on a daily basis. Just follow that to a logical conclusion. It’s either that or endure another decade of elderly whipping and snake fear.Even More American GraffitiAmerican Graffiti is the classic film that first connected Harrison Ford and George Lucas. Its nostalgic vision of 1960s California car culture not only spawned a sequel but was also a huge inspiration for the creation of Happy Days. The ending of the original revealed the future of some major characters, including those who died in Vietnam, but the fate Harrison Ford’s Bob Falfa was left ambiguous after he survives the race-ending wreck. That means there are plenty of ways to kill him in a sequel.The Fugitive 2In this big-screen reboot of the classic TV series, Harrison Ford starred as a man who goes on the run after being framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Unfortunately, in the real world, people get punished for crimes they didn’t commit all the time. They get unjustly sent to jail or even put to death. Killing Harrison Ford in a new Fugitive could actually be a great way to teach audiences about the serious problem that is the colossal failure of the criminal justice system.Air Force One TwoBetween Olympus Has Fallen, Designated Survivor, and White House Down, people do sure love to watch the federal government collapse. What a wonderful escapist fantasy. So the time is now to bring Harrison Ford back as President James Marshall… and then kill him to raise the stakes. Make Harrison Ford Dead Again!Regarding Henry 2Regarding Henry is an uplifting story about a driven lawyer who loses his memory after a being shot and rebuilds himself into a better person. It would be such a shame to make a sequel killing off a character who has already suffered so much. But Harrison Ford is in it, and J.J. Abrams wrote it, so there’s really no other option.The Young Han Solo AdventuresHarrison Ford isn’t starring in this prequel adventure starring his famous space rogue. This time newcomer Alden Ehrenreich is doing the Kessel Run or whatever. Still, just because Harrison Ford isn’t the focus doesn’t mean he can’t die. At the very least, the film should include Solo’s death in The Force Awakens, just to remind us how this all ends.last_img read more

The most bizarre game developers in the world

By on September 1, 2019

first_imgBehind every game in your Steam library is at least one creative mind who had an idea and did the oftentimes arduous work to make it a reality. Producing a video game is a tremendous task, so it’s not surprising that most of the world’s game developers work hard to make their games as appealing to a mass audience as possible.And then there’s the ones who don’t. As with any art form, there are going to be creators who walk the margins of quality and taste, following their own inspirations to make seriously odd games. In this feature, we’ll travel the world to spotlight eleven developers who, for the most part, work outside the industry to produce games that are like nothing you’ll ever play.From a thirty-year veteran of the scene with a penchant for llamas to a first-time developer who locked himself in a room and livestreamed the creation – and destruction – of his life’s work, these are Geek’s picks for the most bizarre game developers in the world.Jacob BuczynskiMelbourne, Australia-based Jacob Buczynski is notorious on the indie gaming scene for his deeply bizarre games, which are based around a desire to deny the player the “expected” in favor of surreal and disquieting imagery and interaction. With artwork rendered exclusively in MS Paint, music stolen from more famous games, and utterly insane mechanics, they’re a peek into a very strange mind.His most famous game, 2007’s Revenge of the Sunfish, is so demented that even famous bad game player PewDiePie had to admit defeat when faced with a level that has you erotically stroking the space bar of an on-screen computer. Some of his other titles include Cripple Apocalypse and Chef le Puke.Mat DickieIndependent game developers often have certain subjects that they stick to. For Mat Dickie, those topics are the life of Christ and professional wrestling. Since 2000, Dickie has been producing idiosyncratic grappling simulations for the PC in as little as three months each. His furious output has made him a legend in the industry.As weird as his wrestling games are, they pale before The You Testament, Dickie’s out-of-control Bible retelling that casts players as an unknown disciple who tags along with Jesus through the New Testament. Built in Dickie’s wrestling engine, the game has gore settings (that default to Extreme), absurdly low-poly 3D graphics, and lets you practice Hindu meditation to cast magic spells that let you shoot watermelons out of your hands. It’s a true masterpiece.Jeff MinterInspiration is a curious thing. It can come from anywhere, and it’s hard to get rid of when you have it. One of the best examples is British game developer Jeff Minter, who has marched to the beat of two muses for decades: psychedelic drugs and ruminant mammals like camels, llamas and the like. As head of Llamasoft, Minter has churned out games for over three decades, never compromising his personal vision.Some of his most notable titles include Attack Of The Mutant Camels, Space Giraffe, and Hover Bovver, most of which featured herbivorous animals. Minter’s also notorious for getting upset when his projects don’t perform commercially as well as other titles he considers less innovative.Osamu SatoJapan is one of the most important countries in video game development, so it’s not surprising that a fair share of quirky creators come from there. One of the most iconoclastic people to ever work in the industry is Osamu Sato, who produced a pair of games in the 1990s that stand as some of the most bizarre things we’ve ever played.Sato’s debut, Tong-Nou, is a first-person adventure game like Myst where you navigate through a green-colored replica of Sato’s head, dying and being reincarnated as different life forms. That was bizarre enough, but Sato earned his place in the pantheon with 1998’s LSD: Dream Emulator for the PlayStation. This goalless, mystifying Japan-only game was based on Sato’s dream diary and remains captivating and inexplicable decades after its release.Stephen MurphyWorking under the name “thecatamites,” Stephen Murphy is one of the most idiosyncratic developers in the indie scene right now. Producing titles at a breakneck pace (his first commercial release was 50 Short Games, which is exactly what it sounds like), thecatamites gleefully embraces messiness and chaos.Space Funeral, his 2010 breakthrough game, was put together in RPG Maker but isn’t like any Squaresoft ripoff you’ve ever played – it’s the tale of Philip and Leg Horse’s journey to the City of Forms, where things take shape. Also worth playing is Goblet Grotto, a third-person adventure game made with Kat Lake that’ll suck you into a deeply weird world.thecatamites’ games are something that mere text doesn’t do justice, but luckily you can download and play almost all of them for free.Suda51The Japanese game development world is known as a pretty risk-averse place where cooperation and obedience are valued, but every so often a true original will make their presence felt. Goichi “Suda51” Suda was working as an undertaker in Tokyo when he saw a job opening at developers Human Entertainment. They hired him to work on their popular Fire Pro Wrestling games, and he wrote a story mode that ended with the player’s chosen wrestler killing himself due to his depression.Amazingly, Suda kept getting work after that, eventually releasing the utterly bizarre Killer7 for Capcom. Although his games have been becoming more commercial, they’re still overflowing with the weirdness of their creator.JazzuoSome game designers work shrouded in mystery, their only contact with the world being the products they release. We know literally nothing about the indie developer who goes by the name “Jazzuo” except that they live in Poland and are responsible for some of the most bizarre PC experiences we’ve ever experienced.Jazzuo first came to fame with the release of Sexy Hiking in 2007. The bizarre, primitive game lets you shepherd a MS Paint-drawn character over a variety of obstacles with one of the weirdest control schemes ever. Jazzuo followed it up with the equally insane Dildo Tank, where you try to blast sex toys into the vaginas of giant women without getting stepped on. Sadly, Jazzuo seems to have disappeared in recent years.Kenji EnoJapanese musician and designer Kenji Eno’s career path was an unusual one. While most industry people in that country start from the bottom and subsume their unique ideas in the corporate culture, Eno was able to start his own firm early on. However, after quitting the games business to work in automobiles, he returned in 1994 to start producing the deeply weird games that would be his hallmark.His games for the doomed 3DO console pushed numerous envelopes – Short Warp came packaged with condoms, for instance – and as he grew as a creator he found ways to make the audio of his titles just as important as the visuals, if not more so – in Enemy Zero, monsters are invisible and can only be detected through close listening. His most notable titles are the D series, which meld FMV, outrageous sexuality, and survival horror.Tarn AdamsThe dream of any indie game developer is to make that one project that’ll support you for the rest of your life – the Minecraft model, as it were. For Tarn Adams, one of the two developers of insanely opaque cult hit Dwarf Fortress, that one project might be the most complicated game of all time.Built in collaboration with his brother Zach, DF takes the existing simulator genre and turns it into something truly insane. The dwarves that populate your virtual village – rendered entirely in ASCII graphics – can write poems, lose limbs, tame animals, and more. If they can’t do it, it’s likely Adams is trying to find a way they can. The game is absolutely free and Adams plans to continue working on it his whole life, funded entirely by donations from fans.Robert PelloniMany game developers are motivated by hubris – they want to do something bigger and better than anybody has ever done. For Robert Pelloni, that urge came to dominate his entire life. His magnum opus was called Bob’s Game, which he bragged was the biggest game ever made completely by one person. Without any official software, he coded his own game engine for the Nintendo DS and approached the company about getting a license.When they turned him down in 2008, Bob went fully off the rails, locking himself in a room with a 24 hour webcam feed as a form of protest. He also started leaking addresses of Nintendo execs to the web. A number of other hijinks followed, including the release of a demo that was just a fetch quest to get a battery and a broken version of Tetris. In 2014, Bob launched a Kickstarter campaign to buy a van to live in and finish the game. It succeeded, but he officially canceled Bob’s Game in 2016 anyway.UlillilliaNick Smith, who goes by the nom de plume Ulillillia, is a fantastic illustration of how devoted independent game developers can be. Smith has been working on his magnum opus Platform Masters since 2009, creating every aspect of his game engine to fit with his fixation on framerate and precise mathematics.Ulillillia doesn’t play games for the same reasons you or I do – he’s obsessed with doing things like seeing how high you can possibly jump and pushing engines to their limits – and it’s only logical that his creations would be equally idiosyncratic.Platform Masters looks like an ordinary Mario-esque game, but the level of detail Smith puts into seemingly trivial things make it a unique accomplishment. In his own words, it has “No noticeable limits – rack up a quadrillion points (a million billions), a million lives, or defeat any enemy or boss in one hit, if you dare, and still go even higher for centuries.”last_img read more

Researchers find highresolution retina cells in mice only activate when birds fly

By on August 31, 2019

first_img(Phys.org) — In the eye, the retina is the light sensitive tissue that lines its inner surface; packed with ganglion neurons, its job is to convert incoming information to something that the brain can understand. In some animals, such as people, cats and the macaque, the density of neurons in certain areas of the retina accounts for the highest resolution images sent to the brain. But some animals apparently reserve such areas for other jobs. Mice for example, according to new research by a team from Harvard, only use their high resolution areas when under threat from above. As they describe in their paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the team notes that high density neural areas in the retinas of mice are only activated when shadows from birds flying overhead are detected. Citation: Researchers find high-resolution retina cells in mice only activate when birds fly over (2012, August 14) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-08-high-resolution-retina-cells-mice-birds.html This document is subject to copyright.

When focusing on something, the neural network of ganglion cells is busy converting light to images that are sent to the brain via the optic nerve. The only time this process quiets is when people are either lost in thought, or asleep. With mice, according to this new research, things are very different.To find out how mice use their high-resolution ganglion, the team attached a tiny camera to a rat volunteer and then watched to see what sorts of things it focused on. Next, they played the video back directly onto the retinas of several test mice while simultaneously monitoring neural cell activity. In so doing, they found that the high-resolution cells sat mostly quiet, doing nothing.As it turned out, the cells weren’t actually doing nothing, they were waiting.When silhouettes of birds were projected overhead, the waiting ended as the ganglia sprang into action, interpreting every movement. This shows, the researchers say, that the high-resolution neuron groups in mice retinas serve not as interpreters of everyday life, but as highly specific predator detectors. More specifically they found the nerves reacted when the birds were in their center of view, meaning close and ready to snatch them up. Sadly, they also found that the nerves quit firing once the birds came close enough, indicating the mice were doomed.After testing several scenarios, the team found that the retina cells in the mice tended to fire when detecting virtually any object that appeared against a blank backdrop, which was also moving, such as is the case of a bird flying in the sky. Thus it appears, for mice, it’s better to focus sharply only when predators from the sky are near, so as to best prepare for a quick emergency plan.last_img read more

It’s packing an Intel Core i5-8300H processor, 8GB of RAM, a 1TB HDD and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 with 4GB of VRAM. Aside from being gorgeous with its slick design and thin bezels, this baby can run Rise of the Tomb Raider above 30 fps on High settings. Plus, all your games can be enjoyed on the laptop’s great 2-millimeter travel keyboard. Although the battery lasts just under 5 hours.There’s the Dell G3 15 Gaming, which also starts at $749 with the same exact specs, but for an extra $50 you can toss that mechanical hard drive for a 256GB SSD that will allow for faster boot-up times. Its bezels are a lot thicker than the Legion’s, and its keyboard isn’t as good due to its lower 1.2mm travel, but the G3 15’s battery life lasts under 7 hours, which is nearly 2 hours longer than the Legion’s.MORE: Best and Worst Laptop Gaming BrandsIf you’re willing to break your budget just a little bit, the MSI GV62 8RE ($949 at the time of writing) could benefit you with its beefy GTX 1060 with 3GB of VRAM. It scored a 7.3 out of 11 on the SteamVR Performance test, making virtual reality not only possible, but actually look good.

(Image courtesy Siemens Healthcare)Boxes aren’t cutting it any more in radiology. Who’s impressed today by the 23 hundredth-of-a-second rotating gantry; the wide bore, ultra-short 3T; the X-ray detector without cabling? I am. But not many others.It’s more than a “What have you done for me lately” problem. In fact, it’s not a “what” problem at all. It’s “why” — why radiology does what it does. Today it’s all about the patient. But it didn’t used to be. In the early years of radiology, there was a kind of naiveté that came from success in narrow bands. This was obvious with the glamour twins of imaging, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR). Slice wars propelled one generation of CTs to the next: 4 to 8 … 8 to 16 … 16 to 32 … 32 to 64. In MR, allegiance to 1.5T fueled new offerings. A fling with low-field open fizzled when the jump to high-field fell short and wide bore cylinders took over. The realization that radiology had plateaued was clear when generation X machines went beyond the routine needs of radiology, delivering 128-plus slices and 3T. Radiology began to question the supremacy of the box. Patient concerns and efficiency took over.Low-dose CT, radiography and fluoro are staples of radiologic modernity. Nobody talks anymore about SAR (specific absorption rate). That was a problem in 3T scanning, but engineers solved it. If the advanced MR protocols shown at this year’s RSNA pan out, scan times could drop to 10 or even five minutes for the brain and from 30 to 10 minutes for complex body and heart cases.Unquestionably, there is plenty left to do, much of it in the culture of radiology. Only about one in five practicing radiologists in the United States are women. Equality fares even worse when it comes to women in leadership positions. Of radiologists who are chairs, presidents, vice chairs or board members of their radiology groups, women account for only 15 percent.There is reason to hope the future will be more equitable. After all, radiology has thrust the patient before the box. It has done so while staying in character — reinventing itself with technologies inserted like nucleic snippets into its DNA.Spectral and dual-energy CT describe the chemical romance between tissues and disease. Ultrasound has gotten smaller, lighter, easier to operate, eminently programmable and exquisitely adapted to patient needs. The steak-and-potatoes hybrid of positron emission tomography (PET) and CT is beginning, in some instances, to cede its position to the steak-and-broccoli combo of PET and MR that delivers similar clinical results without the ionizing radiation of CT.The box got us here. But it is no longer about the box. It is about what the box can do. And that makes me a little sad.I loved the simple days, when progress was expressed in technological hops. I feel them in the almost imperceptible hum of the CT gantry circling the patient, transferring data through its optical links — successor to the slip rings, which replaced the cabling that held the gantry in check like the leash on a 90-pound Bull Terrier repeatedly lunging forward and being pulled back. I see them in the vibrating MR gradient coils — tamed, in some cases, to the point that the bizarre noises they emit can be barely heard.  I feel them in today’s successor to the X-ray Bucky — vessel for film turned into a case for electronic circuitry, tethered to an operator’s console, now wireless … free … once again.  It’s hard to let go, to look beyond these boxes, to the greater purpose of radiology. But it’s time.It has become all about the patient.

On tweeting and twitteando Should we resist when languages change

By on August 19, 2019

first_imgRelated posts:A love letter to Costa Rica’s second language Brush up your bathroom Spanish: a truly crappy language lesson You can’t speak Spanish without huevos Shall I compare thee to … a monkey with a plastic banana? Recommended: La horma de mi zapato – on love and taxisAs a political observer, I have found living in Costa Rica to be hugely freeing. In the United States, I tend to approach politics the way I watched “The West Wing” — passionate, emotional, hugely invested in a particular outcome. I bite my nails, agonize and have nightmares (at least during campaign season). I know that some of what I’m seeing is absurd and even entertaining, but I am unable to enjoy it because there is too much at stake.In Costa Rica, however, I approach politics the way I watch “House of Cards” — that is, able to relish the good, the bad and the ugly in a different way, evaluating the individuals more than the parties involved.I’m not saying that I don’t care deeply about the issues facing Costa Rica. I certainly do care. Nor am I making any comparisons between TV shows and the real-life politics of either country. It’s just that when you’re in a country where you can’t vote, didn’t grow up with one party’s signs identifying your house and your room, didn’t meet candidates in your New Hampshire neighborhoods and make up campaign ditties for them in your spare time — yes, I was that kid — you don’t ride the roller coaster in the same way. You watch it from the ground.When it comes to language, I feel something similar. In English, I’m a crotchety old-school grump. I am an editor and a former English teacher, and happily embody the worst qualities of both, brandishing a red pen and waging a warring battle against change.I hate the use of “impact” as a verb. I correct split infinitives, even though I know that’s a nonsensical, knee-jerk reaction based on an idealization of Latin. I cringe at the word “trending.” When a common error becomes so widespread that it gets incorporated into the dictionary, I feel downright betrayed (I’d give some examples, but my blood pressure would go through the roof).In Spanish, I have no such loyalties. I have the tone deafness of the second-language learner: I lack the linguistic radar and cultural context that allows a native speaker to understand when someone is using a current, new-fangled or old-fashioned term.Recently, I began to wonder what terms in Costa Rica have gone out of style, but I realized I couldn’t think of one. I had to turn to friends and Facebook for ideas.The responses flooded in as people remembered words and phrases on the lips of their grandparents. Most of them required several layers of translation by my husband or the fascinating Costa Rican dictionaries that our landlord, having seen my post, brought by for my perusal.Here is a very random sampling, representing a topic I would love to explore much more: “Se lo llevó Candanga” — the devil took him, or, in other words, it all went wrong. “Acharita” — what a pity. “Esos son otros cien pesos,” or “Eso es arena de otro costal” are both ways to say “That’s another kettle of fish,” which, come to think of it, is pretty dated in English as well.“Merenjunge” is any natural remedy — “I went to Doña Rosa and she gave me a merenjunge.” “Corrongo” is pretty or handsome, an outdated word that apparently was used mostly by the upper classes.These expressions are floating away on the inevitable tides of change that any language experiences. But, of course, more systematic change is taking place as well. Observers of the Spanish language bemoan a general dumbing down of the language just as I do in English. And then there’s Spanglish, which, depending on your perspective, is either eating away at the language like a cancer, or performing a natural function of linguistic evolution.The more I learn about linguistic history, the more I lean, reluctantly, towards the latter interpretation. I might dislike newer arrivals like “textear” or “friquear” (to freak out), but at the same time, words I use every day, such as “queque,” “carro” and “tiquete,” have already moved Costa Rican or Latin American Spanish away from its roots in Europe, where these words are “pastel,” “coche” and “boleto.”Let’s face it — change is a part of language, and one of the most fascinating things about it. When I taught young Mexican-Americans in Arizona, we did a quick review of the history of language, especially the way Latin evolved into the Romance languages, and the varied roots of English. We also studied Spanglish, a language in which many of the students were proficient. One of the more studious kids came up to me, wide-eyed. “So we’re making a new language? Right here, right now?” It was a mind-blowing moment for him, and for me as well. I had never thought about it quite that way.In the end, living abroad and undertaking a more cool-headed and detached view of both language and politics has taught me a great deal. I’ve become more realistic about my own political party and leaders back home, understanding that the politicians I revered growing up were flawed humans within a flawed system. And my limited observation of the changes of Spanish has showed me that really, we are all simply sticking our feet into a rushing river that started far upstream of us and will continue on long beyond our last word. Actually, a better analogy would be that while we think we’re on a solid bank, we’re actually afloat; the rules and regulations we’re fighting to preserve were once, themselves, the outliers.Words I think of as standard, because of my limited knowledge, were included in the Diccionario of the Real Academia Española as Costa Rican upstarts within the past couple of decades. These words include purete (a significant or weak person), binear (to spy on your neighbors or stick your nose where it’s not wanted), vacilar (to make fun), or, of course, the ubiquitous ahuevar.Does that mean we shouldn’t fight for our political party, or against prepositions at the end of sentences? Certainly not. Perspective is essential in life, to keep us from being permanently friqueados. But at some point, you’ve got to take a stand and say, “This is what I believe,” or “Up with this I will not put.”We need detachment, but we need passion, too. Otherwise, well, se nos lleva Candanga.(What about you? What are the rules or phrases you’d fight to preserve, or the new expressions you’d rather keep at bay?

Journeys of Change – Penny Hall

Sometimes life throws more significant challenges with more drastic results.Journeys of Change – Penny HallSometimes you get someone like Penny Hall who has faced to worst and recreated herself. Not only a TravelManager, Penny is a few weeks away from running a Sunday afternoon course in Adelaide written in conjunction with her two teenage daughters.“The universe brought me here. I am always searching for “more”. At times it felt like a path of self destruction as I surrounded myself with the wrong people. Something had to give, and it did.”Knowing the back story, it’s staggering to see the new Penny with her feet firmly on the ground.  “The peace I live with is a delight every day. I am calm, accepting and truly at my “homebase” of life, where I am supposed to be, the reason why I was born, my “why” for being here.”Journeys of Change – Penny HallHow can go through pain and re live and re structure it to produce valuable content?

The teenage years can be some of the most memorable, both good and bad. Myself and my girls talk like there’s no tomorrow and we wanted to get our own conversations “out there”, with other teens and their parents/carers.”The course covers strategies for teens to use, conversations about the life of teenagers today, understanding cause-and-effect of good and bad choices and learning to listen to one another as people.It’s a massive change to make – the relative comfort of booking travel to putting yourself out there, being vulnerable with the aim of sharing and benefiting others. Change is the greatest challenge.“Changes can be so overwhelming,  causing an overload of thoughts, feelings and emotions. Thoughts which may appear to be real, can be made up. Emotions can well up and become so dramatic, we sink further down our misery hole of no return.“Unexpected change can happen at a glimpse, a moment in time.
