In a setback to CBI and income-tax sleuths, a Dubai court has barred corporate lobbyist Deepak Talwar, who is being probed in India for allegedly concealing income of more than Rs 1,000-crore as well as facilitating aviation contracts during the UPA regime, from leaving the country. The Dubai court gave an order on November 29, 2017.The court’s order came after a complaint by one Rajendra Patel, a resident of Burj Dubai, filed on November 28.The complaint relates to a dispute over financial transactions held between March and November between Patel and Talwar for their ‘commericial interests’ in Dubai.Officials in CBI and I-T are intrigued about the timing of the order which will frustrate India’s efforts to bring Talwar back to the country to face the law.Read it at Times of India Related Items

The Apple Watch Series 4 has been officially launched in India. Although the Apple Watch Series 4 was announced alongside the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR in September, it is only now that Apple India has revealed its price and availability details. The Apple Watch Series 4 starts at Rs 40,990 in India and will be available for buying from October 19. Online retail websites like Flipkart have started taking preorders for the Apple Watch Series 4 although not all the variants seem to be up for grabs just yet.Here are all the prices:Apple Watch Series 4 40mm with aluminum case (GPS): Rs 40,990Apple Watch Series 4 44mm with aluminum case (GPS): Rs 43,990Apple Watch Series 4 40mm with aluminum case (GPS+Cellular): Rs 49,990Apple Watch Series 4 44mm with aluminum case (GPS+Cellular): Rs 52,990Apple Watch Series 4 40mm with stainless steel case and sport band (GPS+Cellular): Rs 67,900Apple Watch Series 4 44mm with stainless steel case and sport band (GPS+Cellular): Rs 71,900Apple Watch Series 4 40mm with stainless steel case and Milanese Loop band (GPS+Cellular): Rs 76,900Apple Watch Series 4 44mm with stainless steel case and Milanese Loop band (GPS+Cellular): Rs 80,900While the Apple Watch Series 4 models with aluminum case will be available in Silver, Space Grey, and Gold aluminium options, the steel models will be available in standard steel, Space Black and Gold options.An interesting bit about the new Apple Watch Series 4 is that even though it offers a 30 per cent larger display, it still occupies a footprint in line with the outgoing Apple Watch Series 4. The same bands will therefore work across the board for all Apple Watch Series 4 in case someone already owns the Apple Watch Series 3. The secret sauce here is an all new curved OLED display that stretches all the way up to the edges of the device allowing for more screen real estate in a relatively pint-sized form-factor.advertisementThe Apple Watch Series 4 rocks new hardware and new features, the most exciting being built-in ECG detection. Since selling such a device over the counter requires passing region-specific regulations, it was believed that Apple may not launch the Apple Watch Series 4 anytime soon in India. As it turns out, Apple has passed the necessary regulatory hurdles to sell the Apple Watch Series 4 in India sooner than one would have expected, so users in India will also be able to use all the new and exciting features, including fall detection and more, that the device brings to the table in line with users in the West.Meanwhile, another Apple device that is soon to start selling in India is the iPhone XR, which is a relatively more affordable option should the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max be too expensive for buyers.ALSO READ: Apple Watch Series 4 launched: Top 4 features you should know about
Willie Mullins broke his duck in the Irish Grand National in spectacular style, saddling the first three horses home in the Easter Monday race, victory going to the well-backed 6-1 favourite Burrows Saint. The next mission will be at Aintree a year from now, when he will try to prevent Tiger Roll from winning a third Grand National.That much was signalled by Ruby Walsh mere moments after dismounting from his third winner of the Fairyhouse contest. “I’d say now we’ll run him away over hurdles and have a go at Tiger Roll,” the jockey said, grinning broadly. It seemed an obvious rebuff to recent speculation that the 39-year-old Walsh was minded to retire at the end of this season; at the very least, Burrows Saint has given him a powerful incentive to go on for another year. … we have a small favour to ask.

But he agreed: “He looks a typical Aintree horse, doesn’t he? He lopes around and jumps, so we’ll probably try and set that up.”Paddy Power were first to give a quote about Burrows Saint for next April’s Grand National, offering 33-1. That lasted only minutes and 20-1 was soon the biggest price available.“It’s unbelievable,” Mullins said, savouring the fact he had finally won a race in which his record had been 0/34. While he has reliably been the champion jumps trainer in Ireland in recent years, the National has not been nearly as kind to him as it was to his father, Paddy, who won it with four different horses between 1967 and 1981.“It was a race I always wanted to win because it was probably the first big race we won at home in Doninga,” Mullins said, referring to his father’s stable in County Kilkenny. “It’s a race that has a bit of resonance in our house.”While Walsh did an excellent job of guiding Burrows Saint through the faller-strewn marathon, the jockey revealed he had made a contribution at a far earlier stage. “After he won at Gowran, we were doing the Irish National entries and Willie wasn’t around, so we just stuck him in, hoping he might win a three-mile chase and then run here. Look, you need an improving novice to win this race.”Asked when he had first seen Burrows Saint as a potential National horse, Walsh replied: “When I won a maiden hurdle on him at Punchestown [in 2017]. I broke my leg about 20 minutes later but I liked him that day.”The way was smoothed for Burrows Saint by significant early departures. Measureofmydreams fell at the first and the field had not got much further before the Mullins-trained pair C’est Jersey and Pairofbrowneyes had also exited the race. Any Second Now was another fancied runner whose jumping let him down on the first circuit.With a mile to go, Whisperinthebreeze powered his way clear of the remaining runners, a worrying situation for Walsh, who remembered being unable to reel in the grey in a previous race at Leopardstown. “I know it was a mile further but I was still thinking, I can’t give him that much rope. So I had to go after him a little bit.”When Whisperinthebreeze faded from the fourth-last, Walsh found himself in front far earlier than planned. It gave the winner’s stablemates, Isleofhopendreams and Acapella Bourgeois, every chance to rally and make a final challenge but the six-year-old sustained his effort to the line.“It shows what potential he must have,” Mullins said. Walsh, meanwhile, enthused about the horse’s Aintree credentials. “He’s French in the way he jumps, he’s accurate, he’s low. Yeah, he’d be my idea for that race.” Support The Guardian Share on LinkedIn Horse racing Share on WhatsApp Share on Pinterest Share on Twitter Reuse this content
Ohio State received its 2014 National Championship rings earlier today, and the Buckeyes began showing them off online. The Twitter account for ESPN’s SportsCenter used OSU wide receivers coach Zach Smith’s ring picture in a tweet, and cited the assistant in the process. A Michigan fan on Twitter responded to the tweet by acknowledging that this is the Buckeyes’ eighth claimed national championship, while the Wolverines claim 11 over their program’s history. @LeadFoot_Lads82 @SportsCenter @CoachZachSmith @DMike94 WOAH DUDE ONLY 3 MORE TO MATCH MICHIGAN.— Us Against The World (@MichiganTorei) March 27, 2015Smith was tagged in the Michigan fan’s response tweet, and decided to come up with a comeback of his own, rather than stay silent. What Smith did was take a screenshot of Wikipedia’s listing of national champions during the poll era (1936-present). During that time frame, Ohio State has four more titles than Michigan, because the Maize and Blue claim a handful of championships from the turn of the 20th century.

zoomIllustration; Source: Pixabay Singapore-based port operator PSA International has completed the acquisition of Penn Terminals from Macquarie Infrastructure Partners, following formal approval by the relevant regulatory authorities.Located on the Delaware River, United States, Penn is one of the best equipped, privately owned multipurpose marine terminals on the Eastern Coast of the U.S., according to PSA.“This acquisition represents PSA’s very first foray into the U.S. We are delighted to embrace Penn as the newest member of the global PSA family and to be able to participate in its continued growth and expansion,” Tan Chong Meng, Group CEO, PSA International, said.Penn has recently undergone a significant capacity upgrade with the addition of two new post-panamax Ship-to-Shore (STS) cranes in late 2018; bringing its total STS count to four.The terminal is also a key component of the perishable cargo handling infrastructure of the Delaware River with approximately 2,850,000 cubic feet (80,400 cubic meters) of on-dock reefer warehouse space.In North America, PSA also operates Ashcroft Terminal, British Columbia’s largest inland port facility and Halterm Container Terminal, the only facility in Eastern Canada that can serve mega container vessels.
Kancheepuram (TN): Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami on Saturday said his Andhra Pradesh counterpart Y S Jaganmohan Reddy has agreed to release eight tmc ft of water from Krishna river following a plea. One tmcft of water denotes one thousand million cubic feet. The release of water would benefit the parched city of Chennai and the water was expected to be received ‘soon,’ the chief minister said. “Let me share the happy news that when the water reaches here, the people of Chennai will receive uninterrupted and safe drinking water,” he told reporters here and thanked Reddy for acceding to Tamil Nadu’s request. Also Read – Ripe mango ‘khatta-mitha’ chutney On Friday, state Ministers SP Velumani and D Jayakumar had met Reddy in Vijayawada and handed over a letter to him on behalf of Palaniswami requesting immediate release of water from Krishna river through the Telugu Ganga canal to overcome the grave drinking water scarcity in the city. Velumani had on Friday said Andhra Pradesh could not earlier release water as there was a ‘dearth of storage.’ The situation was favourable now due to good inflow into Srisailam dam, he had said. Also Read – Banana Pudding On Friday, Reddy’s office had said he had directed the Water Resources Department authorities to ensure water release immediately. As per the agreement between Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, the former normally releases at least two tmcft of water to meet Chennai’s drinking water needs, official sources had said in Vijayawada. On the AIADMK’s loss in the August 5 Parliamentary election in Vellore, Palaniswami said his party considered it more of a “win” by virtue of leading in three of the six Assembly seats covered under the constituency. He said though DMK chief MK Stalin had earlier exuded confidence that his party would win with a margin running into “lakhs” the final difference was only 8,141 votes. DMK’s Kathir Anand had defeated AIADMK ally AC Shanmugam of Puthiya Needhi Katchi in the election held on August 5, with the counting of votes taken up on Friday. Shanmugam had contested on the AIADMK’s Two Leaves symbol. Though polling in Vellore was originally scheduled on April 18 along with the rest of the 38 Lok Sabha seats in the state, it was later rescinded following searches by the income tax sleuths leading to unearthing of cash allegedly meant to bribe voters. The DMK-led alliance had swept the April 18 elections by winning 37 of the 38 seats where polls were held, with the ruling AIADMK pocketing the lone Theni segment. Asked if issues like Centre scrapping Triple Talaq and the “Kashmir issue,” an oblique reference to the removal of Article 370 that gave Jammu and Kashmir special status, hurt AIADMK’s prospects in Vellore, Palaniswami shot back saying the voting process was a “secret.” Among the six Assembly constituencies in Vellore, Ambur and Vaniyambadi have a sizeable Muslim population. “When the voting process is such a secret affair, how can we know if the minorities or majorities voted (for a particular party). One cannot respond to questions based on assumptions,” he said. Tamil Nadu was a peaceful state and “beyond” caste and religion and there was no politics being done over these, he said. “We view all sections of people as one,” Palaniswami added. To a question, he said local body elections would be held soon.

Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Related PPP/CAs Guyanese at home and abroad, especially the Hindu community, prepare to celebrate the joyous festival of Holi or Phagwah, the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) takes this opportunity to extend greetings to all on this occasion.Holi is a festival that has truly become national and one that is most anticipated having transcended religious boundaries. This is manifested through the participation of a wide cross section of Guyanese throughout the country.The fun and frolic that have come to be associated with it remain a catalyst for the forging harmony among all of our people.The kaleidoscope of colours that exemplify the celebrations, heralds the dawn of spring, reminding not only of nature’s beauty but the vibrancy of our rich diversity.Our Party urges all Guyanese to heed the pertinent message of this festival – that of the triumph of good over evil. The story of Prahalad reinforces that hope must always remain alive for in the end, evil will ultimately be defeated.Shubh Holi to all!PNC/R The People’s National Congress Reform extends sincere Holi greetings to the Hindu Community of Guyana in particular, and Guyanese in general, on the celebration of the Festival of Phagwah.All Guyanese embrace Phagwah or Holi. The festival signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, the end of winter and for many, a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forgive and forget and repair broken relationships.The significance of Phagwah is two-fold. Its secular significance lies in the advent of the season of spring, and its real and allegorical implications of fertility, rebirth, renewal and regeneration. The religious significance of Holi lies in the conquest of good over evil, manifested by the destruction by Prahalada of his demonic father, King Hiranyakashipu.As the celebrated Indian national, KulapatiVani wrote many years ago, “… festivals are gatherings for refreshing the spirit and enjoying life,” we urge all Guyanese to use this occasion to refresh their spirit and enjoy life and to participate fully in this colourful festival and enjoy the rich elements of our religious and cultural diversity.DHARMIC SABHAHoli or Phagwah is celebrated at the end of the Hindu calendar year in the dark half of the Hindu month of Phalgun. Phagwah is derived from the word Phalgun. Phagwah heralds the Hindu New Year which is celebrated fifteen days after the festival on the first day of the bright half of the Hindu month of CHAIT.Also called Holi, the word comes from the Sanskrit word “Hola” which means grain. The festival coincides with the harvest of the spring crop and is considered a Spring or Vasant festival. Holi commemorates the regeneration of nature from her slumber. An air of joy pervades the home and the family expresses affection by greeting each other in a dignified manner. Children touch the feet of their parents, spray them with perfume and place ABRAK and powder on their faces. Parents bless their children and wish them not only HOLI KE SHUBH KAAMNAYEA but a bright and prosperous future. Greetings are extended to relatives and friends by squirting them playfully with abeer and placing abrak/gulal on their faces. The colours of the abrak and abeer reflect the vivid hues of spring as at this time nature blooms in abundance.Holi is all embracing and possesses an unparalleled social dimension which is conducive to reunion, exchanges and togetherness occurring in an atmosphere of absolute cordiality. The festival is proletarian in outlook with elements which spontaneously fashion an atmosphere of total equality and people from all walks of life and social strata are literally engulfed in merriment, joy and happiness. Holi transcends all barriers. There is complete unity. The RANG or colours which smear us and make us virtually unidentifiable emphasizes the oneness of humanity or the famous Hindu concept VASUDHAIVA KUTUMBAKAM – Humanity is one family.With the passage of time, the legend of Prince Prahalad and his despot father King HIRANYAKASHYAP became associated with the festival. In this story, the event where the King sought to have his saintly son consumed by fire is recaptured. The King’s sister Holika had a boon which made her immune to the effects of fire. Prahalad was placed on her lap in a pyre in an attempt by his father to have him killed. Instead, the cruel aunt Holika was consumed and the saintly Prince Prahalad escaped unscathed.In Guyana and the Caribbean; much like UTTAR PRADESH, INDIA, a pyre is built and burnt reminiscent of this event on the eve of Holi- Holika Dahan. On Holi morning the ash is collected and placed on foreheads symbolic of the triumph of good over evil.Hol is a time for reflection and analysis. Consequently the merriment and joy which Holi brings should not make us oblivious of the true significance of the festival. Holi does not license anyone to recklessly and wantonly drench passers-by or to barge into people’s homes and splash water on the occupants. Holi should never be associated in any way with events not in consonance with its spiritual dimension; no alcohol, vulgar and lewd music, barbeques and similar activities should be associated with Holi or Phagwah. These acts are against the spirit of our lovely Holi festival and should not form part of the Phagwah celebration. Every effort made to divest this unique festival of practices alien to Phagwah.On behalf of the Dharmic family of the Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha, I take this opportunity to extend Holi greetings to all my brothers and sisters – all of Guyana and wish you the infinite blessings of Bhagwan Krishna. Shubh Holi!HOLI KA SHUBH KAAMNAYEA!GAWUThe Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU) joins with the Hindu community and indeed all other Guyanese in celebrating this year’s Festival of Holi.Though it has its roots in the Hindu community, this Festival is generally recognized as an integral part of our Guyanese social and cultural history and Holi has evolved into a truly national celebration. Holi, popularly known as Phagwah, is now embraced by numerous sections of the population and is yet another expression of our diversity. GAWU sees the togetherness in joyous colourful celebration on this occasion as an example of the need to forge common efforts to bring about and ensure the well-being, peace of mind and steady enhancement of the prosperity of our people. The spirit of unity that is so well manifested on this occasion is testimony to the good prospects we have to strengthen our nation and overcome divisiveness.GAWU realizes that the messages of unity, goodwill and optimism exchanged during such Festivals as Christmas, Mashramani, Eid and Phagwah are positive contributions to instill hope and productive relationships between our people and build strong foundations for our future generations. In this regard, we feel that discriminating practices, whatever their form and a callous attitude to sections of the population will not serve to promote a national environment of trust, confidence and genuine togetherness so vital to peace and a healthy economy.It is appropriate to recall the narrative linked to Phagwah which speaks of the defeat of intrigues and the triumph of a just cause. Thus, we are optimistic that our economic hardship that the trauma stemming from crime and growing want of retrenchment will be overcome soon and completely.May the understanding associated by Festivals like Holi lead to a united and better country where our people of different faiths will take pride in our progress and developments knowing that a secured future is being built for all.Happy Holi 2018 from GAWU!
Microsoft’s MSN and Bing departments have a history of getting cozy with Mozilla’s web browser. Today, there came a proud announcement that msnNOW is available as a Firefox sidebar.In the past, releases have taken two basic forms. First, there’s the fully-customized Firefox browser — an idea that Ron Burgundy would no doubt find mind-bottling. Second, there’s the customization extension. That allows existing Firefox users to instantly add all the MSN/Bing goodies to their browsers instead of replacing it with the weird Microsoft/Mozilla Frankenbrowser.The new msnNOW add-on is actually a Firefox sidebar. That’s pretty cutting edge stuff, considering that it’s only available in the non-stable Firefox builds right now. MSN is also in pretty select company here. About the only other big-name adopter of the sidebar you’re likely to have heard about is Microsoft’s social networking pal Facebook.Activating the bar is simple enough: just head to this page and turn it on. As soon as you do, you’ll see a stream of trending topics from Facebook, Twitter, and Bing appear on the right edge of your Firefox window. As with the Facebook bar, you can also click the chat bubble icon on the Firefox toolbar to change settings for desktop notifications or to disable the extension completely.As bizarre as it seems for a Microsoft division to be showing some love for a competitor’s browser, there’s certainly a good reason to do it. Firefox has hundreds of millions of users, and that means there’s an opportunity to get MSN and Bing additional face time with folks while they browse.Who knows, one silly cat picture and a convincing banner ad for IE later and Microsoft could pick up a thousand converts. The odds aren’t in Microsoft’s favor, but unlikely things do happen all the time on the Internet.
Inter Vice-President Javier Zanetti has responded to Italy CT Roberto Mancini saying that “regardless of nationality, I think talent must be rewarded”.He also went ahead to admonish Serie A clubs to give more space to young Italian players even though one of his own former stars thinks it’s not quite that simple.“After failing to qualify for the World Cup, it’s necessary to work to improve young Italians,” Zanetti agreed, speaking to ANSA via Football Italia.“Mancini is certainly the right person for that. In the league though, regardless of nationality, I think talent must be rewarded.Italy on track with Mancini Taimoor Khan – September 12, 2019 Since being nominated the manager of the national team, Roberto Mancini has helped Italy rediscover its identity in the game.

Igli Tare spoke on how they learned from last season’s injuries and now have realized the importance of squad rotationAfter many weeks discussing contracts for Ciro Immobile and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Lazio has confirmed they are almost done.The team’s director Igli Tare discussed with Football Italia the importance of squad rotation.“It’s a matter of days for Immobile and Milinkovic-Savic’s contracts.

Medina – August 31, 2019 AS Roma manager Paulo Fonseca has hinted Chris Smalling could debut in tomorrow’s Derby Della Capitale between his team and Lazio.“Considering the experience we had last season, above all towards the end of the season with injuries to four or five fundamental players, we paid a heavy price for that, so realized the importance of squad rotation.”“I can’t stop transfer gossip, but Caicedo’s situation is not the one that was pictured in the papers. It’s a tough role for him to be on the bench for much of the time, and the fans don’t forgive him anything,” he added.“Everyone here admires Caicedo, I had a long talk with him and you can see he’s hungry, even if so far it’s only been evident in training. I believe he’ll have a fine season.”“I agree that we’re in a position that we are not accustomed to being in, as we were always surprised outfits, whereas this year we declared that we wanted to be protagonists,” he concluded.
Reports from the Spanish press suggest that Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui could get sacked this Monday, but it’s not 100% certain.With all the bad results that manager Julen Lopetegui has gotten at Real Madrid during his first three months with the club, it would be a shame that he got sacked but that’s exactly what could happen according to the Spanish press.A report on Sunday by Onda Cero’s journalist Jose Ramon de la Morena, confirm that manager Florentino Perez seriously analyzed this Sunday that Julen Lopetegui’s time with Los Blancos could end this week.However, the bad results that FC Barcelona is having at the moment are the main reason why the club’s president could consider letting the manager salvage the situation after the international break.🎙️Jorge Valdano: “En un juego de hábitos la continuidad es importantísima” pic.twitter.com/Hs6eMelkIi— El Transistor (@ElTransistorOC) October 7, 2018Real Madrid just lost at Alaves on Saturday and Lopetegui’s numbers are amongst the worst from a Real Madrid manager in the club’s history, but there are many authorized football voices in Spain that don’t agree with this possibility like former Real Madrid forward Jorge Valdano.The Argentine was part of Onda Cero’s program this Sunday and listened carefully to De La Morena’s report, he doesn’t think that taking continuity from Julen Lopetegui’s project is the best way to proceed for Real Madrid and defended the coach during the program.Jorge is convinced that the players are also to blame for the club’s situation, and he also speaks about how much Cristiano Ronaldo’s absence has hurt the squad.🎙️Jorge Valdano: “Yo creo que está al alcance de Lopetegui hacer reaccionar a este equipo” pic.twitter.com/6yaNJK6JEmQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa?

Sacking a manager is always a failure, especially in a game of habits where continuity is paramount,” said Jorge to Onda Cero.🔊 El Sanedrín de @ElTransistorOC: El futuro de Lopetegui, en el aire https://t.co/hpEwMDyOdB— Onda Cero (@OndaCero_es) October 7, 2018
Hat-trick hero James Forrest has urged Scotland to go and make the most of their European Championship campaign after topping their Nations League group.Scotland will know their opponents when the draw is made in Dublin on Sunday but are guaranteed a play-off semi-final.“Now we know we have the playoffs we can have a real crack at the qualifier,” the 27-year-old told the Herald.“The manager and the staff will tell us to put this stage of it to bed and now get ready for the games ahead. A lot of people have been indifferent about the Nations League but it has been competitive games and a great chance to qualify.“From the outset, we aimed to top the group and we have done that, so the momentum will be there heading into the qualifiers.“What we have done over the last ten days will give us plenty of confidence and everyone is looking forward to the draw now. We will find out who we’ll be playing but with the way we have performed, so attacking, creating chances and scoring goals we will fancy our chances against anyone.Scotland needs a hero: Billy Dodds Manuel R. Medina – September 10, 2019 According to former striker, Billy Dodds his country needs a hero to inspire future generations as the team’s hope to qualify to the EURO 2020 is small.“The group has been working hard – we have to keep it going now.”Forrest secured Scotland’s top spot in the Nations League table in historic fashion; the winger became the first Celtic player to score a hat-trick for Scotland for 110 years, with Jimmy Quinn was the last Celt to achieve the same feat.It took his tally to five goals in two games for Scotland and to 11 goals in his last 11 appearances for both Celtic and Scotland. He would be forgiven for feeling this morning that he could spin gold from straw given the fortune he has enjoyed of late.“It was incredible, I’m absolutely buzzing,” he smiled. “It was great scoring my first goals for Scotland the other night so to come to Hampden and get a hat-trick is the stuff of dreams really. It’s up there with everything else I’ve done with Celtic.“I only got my first goals the other day [for Scotland] and now I have five, it’s pretty crazy really. I just want to kick on again from here, get as many caps as I can and hopefully get as many goals as I can.“I just have to keep working hard, play well for Celtic and when we meet up with Scotland again I hope I’m still playing with as much confidence.”

In a meeting held with the district officials on Friday, the collector opined that all suicides of the farmers in the district are due to the loan burden on them. He advised the RDOs, DSPs and agriculture officers to work in coordination and take the message of the government to the farmers who are thinking about ending their life due to their inability to repay the loans.

The collector said that it is a farmers friendly government and it tries to save the farmers from their problems. He said that the government will provide insurance facility to the farmers and asked the farmers to never worry for anything. He ordered the officials to conduct an impartial inquiry at the ground level to submit the report. Joint Collector S Shan Mohan, SP Siddharth Kaushal, DRO V Venkata Subbaiah, Ongole RDO Penchala Kishore, Kandukur RDO KS Ramarao, Markapuram RDO Ramakrishna Reddy, Agriculture JD Srirama Murthy and other officials also participated in the meeting.
Baltimore City Council President Jack YoungBaltimore City Council members and economic experts will meet Oct. 22 to discuss a proposed plan to sell the city-owned Hilton Baltimore Convention Center Hotel.City Council President Jack Young first proposed the idea in August, believing that proceeds from the sale could fund city efforts to build new recreation centers and create new programs to benefit city youth.Young said that the hotel has failed to bring in the money that city leaders hoped for upon its opening in 2008, and in fact has lost $70 million since that time. He said the Hilton might do better in the hands of people who are actually in the hotel business.“We have an opportunity to turn around what has for years been a money-losing deal for the taxpaying citizens of Baltimore,” Young said in a statement. “Instead of booking hotel rooms, the city should focus its energy and resources on providing our young people with opportunities to thrive and grow academically and socially.”The meeting, described by Young as “informal,” will include members of the council’s Taxation, Finance and Economic Development Committee, as well as academic and accounting experts.The hearing will be held at Baltimore City Hall in Council Chambers on Oct. 22 at 10 a.m.

Videos | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 07, 2019 VIDEO: Walk Around of a Siemens Go.Top Dedicated Cardiac Scanner This is a quick walk around of the new Siemens Somatom Go.top cardiovascular edition compact computed tomography (CT) read more Things change. Sometimes fundamentally. As in the switch from Roman to Arabic numerals and more recently the embrace of base-two. CT? MRI? DR? Without binary math? Fuhgettaboutit!Today change is not only accelerating … it’s taking us in new directions. Deep learning, a branch of artificial intelligence, will shake up radiology like never before.Think you understand computer-aided diagnostics? Think again. Machines are.In August, IBM bought RIS/PACS vendor Merge Healthcare for $1 billion. Why? Largely for Merge’s access to billions of medical images available through its 7,500 customers. IBM figures these images could provide the critical mass that its Watson Health needs to learn how to identify disease as well or better than its predecessor machine-handled contestants on Jeopardy.And this is not an isolated thought. Software engineers from Enlitic, a San Francisco-based start-up, will soon install a deep-learning algorithm of their own design on PACS at 80 medical imaging centers in Australia and Asia. The algorithm will examine archived medical images until it has learned to identify disease. It will then work with radiologists as part of a diagnostic team in exactly the opposite way that radiologists today work with CAD. Working with Enlitic’s algorithm, radiologists will select the areas of interest and the machine will make the interpretation for review, of course, by radiologists.If you think this sounds a bit like machines are taking over, read on.Deep learning algorithms will provide the ultimate clinical decision support, Enlitic founder Jeremy Howard tells me. Tapping into patient and lab information in electronic medical record systems will give these algorithms all the information they need to “advise” physicians about every aspect of patient management from diagnosis to therapy to follow-up. Machines will connect the dots; draw conclusions; even see what hasn’t been seen before. It’s already happening. A DL algorithm developed at Stanford University learned to read pathology images has found evidence that the cells surrounding cancer cells can help determine patient prognoses. That was news to pathologists, who traditionally have looked only at diseased cells. More surprises are on the way.When computer-driven diagnostics really takes hold, machines will have mastered the core capabilities that distinguish 80 percent of the workforce in Western nations — reading and writing, speaking and listening, perception, and integrating knowledge.If radiologists think competition for primary and over reads is tough now, it’s going to get tougher. And they won’t have to wait long.The signs of a radically different world, birthed by machines that learn, are everywhere. Driverless cars are cruising California streets, distinguishing trees from pedestrians, waiting a moment extra at intersections because analyses show many accidents happen 1.5 seconds after the light turns green. In an instant, deep learning can translate spoken language to English text to Mandarin text to spoken Mandarin — in a voice indistinguishable from that of the speaker. Amazon suggests new purchases based on ones bought; Google fills in searches based on what we mean to type, as well as what we do. Enlitic’s learning algorithm could be working in a matter of months, learning and then identifying signs of disease in MR, CT, ultrasound and X-ray images. Five years from now this and other DL-based software could be in use around the world. It won’t be long until their developers will ask, “Why use telepresence to bring experts virtually to patients, when deep learning algorithms can be on-site serving as virtual experts?”Developing nations will be among the first to buy into this argument, because they are in the direst need of what learning machines can do. DL algorithms might offset the dearth of medical expertise that experts say is holding back the improvement of public health in these countries. If deep learning is proven under such demanding conditions, will the increasingly cost conscious healthcare systems of Western nations be far behind?We may take solace in the fact that the world has weathered technological revolutions before. But the one now approaching will be unlike any ever seen. Whereas human performance is increasing gradually, the performance of deep learning is growing exponentially.It’s not a brave new world we are facing. It is a world of unprecedented opportunity and extraordinary peril. And it’s filling our side view mirror … the one that says objects may be closer than they appear.Editor’s note: This is the first blog in a series of four by industry consultant Greg Freiherr on The Evolution of Radiology.
