Mortgage stress test accounts for up to 15B drop in new mortgages

Companies in this story: (TSX:CM)The Canadian Press A new report by CIBC estimates Ottawa’s new mortgage stress tests last year accounted for at least half of the decline in new mortgage originations.Benjamin Tal, deputy chief economist at CIBC World Markets Inc., says the total value of new mortgages fell by eight per cent or $25 billion in 2018.He estimates the impact of the new stress test made up $13 billion to $15 billion of that drop.The test came into effect last year and requires home buyers to prove that they can service an uninsured mortgage at a higher rate than they qualify for in order to receive a loan from a federally regulated lender.Tal says while the stress test was probably necessary, regulators should revisit it.He says it doesn’t take into account that borrowers’ incomes are likely to rise throughout their mortgage term, among other things. read more

Millionsignature petition to end nuclear weapons goes on display at UN Headquarters

24 March 2011A one-million signature petition from cities around the world demanding the abolition of nuclear weapons went on exhibition at United Nations Headquarters in New York today in a ceremony attended by Japanese survivors of the first and only use of the devastating bombs. Organized by Mayors for Peace, which was founded in 1982 by the mayors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the two cities laid waste by atomic bombs in 1945, and now counts 4,540 cities in 150 countries, the exhibition underscores the goal of transcending national borders to fight for nuclear disarmament in what Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called a “landmark occasion” that helps to build international momentum. “These one million signatures demanding an end to the nuclear threat are the voice of the world’s people. This movement brings together mayors and mothers, like-minded citizens and peace groups. They all understand that nuclear weapons make us less safe, not more,” he told those present, first addressing three ‘hibakusha,’ as atomic bomb survivors are called, including one he met on a visit to Hiroshima last year. “Everywhere I go, I will repeat my strong, consistent and clear call for nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament. I will carry the message of the million petitioners represented here today and the many millions more around the world seeking to end the nuclear threat. Together, we can rid the world of nuclear weapons and answer the call of these hibakusha, who survived a nuclear attack and dedicated themselves to making sure no one else would ever suffer the same fate.” Mr. Ban, who noted that today’s event added to the UN’s permanent disarmament installation – the first exhibit of which emphasizes the importance of the world Organization’s partnership with a global non-governmental organization (NGO) – then signed the petition himself. Also present was award-winning actor Michael Douglas, a UN Messenger of Peace, who said: “Obviously, any time I can be here to have a reminder, a memoriam of the first and only use of atomic weapons and the destruction they did, I think it’s an important reminder,” he told UN Radio. read more

Many indebted African countries unlikely to meet MDGs – UNCTAD

Despite progress in the World Bank’s Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) initiative, many African countries are unlikely to manage their debt situations or achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) aimed at fighting a host of socio-economic ills, according to a report discussed at a United Nations conference today.The assessment came during the 37th executive session of the Trade and Development Board in Geneva of the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), which seeks to integrate developing countries into the world economy. The report also recommended a debt write-off for the poorest countries or the application of an alternative set of debt sustainability criteria, including human development indicators, UNCTAD said.In the report’s second section, which deals with advisory services and capacity building, UINCTAD said that the Joint Integrated Technical Assistance Programme (JITSP), launched in February 2003 for 16 African countries, continued in partnership with the International Trade Centre (ITC) and World Trade Organization (WTO). This programme is focused on enhancing the capacities of national task forces established to deal with the multilateral trading system in the beneficiary countries. Other trade-related technical assistance activities include: support on trade negotiations; assistance to countries in the process of accession to the WTO; support for African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) States in their negotiations with the EU on economic partnership agreements (EPAs); assistance in trade in services and trade preferences; and capacity-building and support in connection with South-South trade and regional and global trade agreements.Activities have also been implemented in the areas of the links between trade, the environment and development; competition and consumer protection policies; commodities; and services development.Other areas of activity include: debt management; international investment (including investment policy reviews); enterprise development; and trade facilitation, including customs and multimodal transport. read more

Hundreds of high school students get a taste of Brock experience

Researchers and scholars made room for potential colleagues on Wednesday when some 600 students from high schools across Niagara poured into Brock University.The University hosted two major orientation events — its annual History Day, as well as Science, Health Sciences and Kinesiology Day — as students from 19 public and Catholic high schools got a taste of life at Brock.The visitors got to take in a lecture in their respective disciplines, experience active work in Brock labs and seminars and generally get a pure sense of the post-secondary experience.E.L. Crossley Secondary School students Lauren Dudzik and Sofia Labricciosa test equipment in Brock’s High Performance Centre during a visit to the main campus Wednesday, Dec. 5.“It gives us a good feel for what we’re getting into,” said Sofia Labricciosa, a Grade 11 student from E.L. Crossley Secondary School in Pelham, who was among the science-stream participants.With Brock’s Health Sciences programs on her radar, Labricciosa said her visit, which included time in labs and Brock’s High Performance Centre, was invaluable.“There are a lot of new facilities at Brock and a lot of opportunities available here,” she said. “This experience will help me make a clear decision of the direction I want to go in when the time comes.”Science Day participants first took in a Biology lecture before moving on to Chemistry, Biology, Oenology and Viticulture, Health Sciences, Earth Sciences and Physical Health and Literacy labs.For students more focused on Humanities, the day included a History lecture followed by a related seminar discussion with their peers.“Many local students have been on campus for athletics or other events, but this visit allows us to show them what Brock has to offer academically,” said Brock Recruitment and Liaison Officer Courtney Keogh. That experience, she said, can be a big benefit for students who have already expressed an interest in certain areas of study.“We had a few groups participate who are Health and Wellness Specialist High Skills Majors,” Keogh said. “They’ve dedicated their time in high school to pursuing that field, and now we can show them what their next steps will look like if they continue on that path here at Brock.”In addition to lectures, labs and seminars, students participated in campus tours led by current Brock students.The University continues to build momentum after a banner fall that yielded record enrolment of more than 19,000 students for the 2018-19 school year and saw Brock ranked third in Canada for student experience among comprehensive universities by Maclean’s Magazine.Brock also shattered its Fall Preview Day attendance record Nov. 4, with more than 5,300 prospective students and family members touring campus with interest.While recruitment teams continue to spread word about the Brock experience at various schools and events across the province and even across the globe, there’s nothing quite like witnessing the campus atmosphere in person, said Beth Natale, Director of Recruitment and Retention.“We can tell the story much more fully when prospective students come to campus,” she said. “They can try life on as a Brock student, move between various learning settings and experience a lecture, lab or seminar.“Seeing and feeling it for yourself is a much more lasting and memorable experience. It has a huge impact.”Natale’s team wants to help students recognize that Brock is an accessible institution filled with a community of people looking to guide them towards success.“It’s about breaking down some of those perceptions of university and helping students to understand this is completely doable,” she said. “We want to see our learners succeed and we will do what we can to help get them from Point A to Point B.”The next recruitment event takes place Thursday, Dec. 13, when the University welcomes dozens of guidance counsellors from across Hamilton and Niagara to get an up-close look at the rich Brock experience.Any high school groups looking to come to campus, even outside of the recruitment team’s current offerings, are invited to contact Keogh to discuss opportunities at“We’re all about developing more programming and more relationships on campus, so we welcome people to get in touch,” she said. read more

John Delaney remaining tightlipped over Traps future

first_imgFAI CHIEF EXECUTIVE John Delaney wasn’t giving much away when asked about Giovanni Trapattoni’s future ahead of a massive couple of days.Ireland meet Sweden in Stockholm on Friday before returning to Dublin to face Austria four days later and will have a much better idea of whether qualifying for the 2014 World Cup is achievable by next week.With Group C leaders Germany heavy favourites to top the group, a runner-up spot is what Ireland have set their sights on and they must aim to avoid defeat in the upcoming double-header to have a real chance.Delaney and the FAI chose to back the Italian after the 6-1 humiliation to Germany last October but a couple more poor results would pile the pressure on once again.Speaking to Sky Sports News as part of a two-part feature, Delaney refused to be drawn into whether he could be wielding the axe in the near future.“We are not going to comment on whether a manager keeps his job or not,” Delaney said. “We made our decision last October after the two games that we are supporting the manager because he has delivered for us and he is experienced.“I would like, most of the board would like and Irish soccer supporters would like that we are competitive in this group after these two matches. I respect him for what he has done on and off the field. There is always going to be a discussion about his style of play and whether it is attractive or not.“If we win these two games, he’ll be a king in this country, like he was when we qualified.”Delaney added that the expectation levels of Irish fans should have been lower heading into Euro 2012, where Ireland lost their three group games to Croatia, Spain and Italy.He said: “There was a wave of optimism going into the Euros which maybe, in hindsight, was too high as some of our key players were injured going into the tournament.“Like everything in life, when something is not working you have to reappraise it and have look at it and see how you can improve.“We spoke to the manager very openly and very honestly (after the Germany loss).“It was tough medicine, not just as chief executive but as an Irish football supporter. The board sat and took our time to make a decision, which was obviously to reaffirm his management.“First of all, he is an experienced manager. Secondly, he had delivered for us up to the Euros, and thirdly, we had six points out of nine.There are many other national associations who would love to have six points out of nine.”Paul Green was wearing a bib again at training — and you know what that (probably) meansVIDEO: Iniesta back playing futsal in his hometown for new Nike virallast_img read more

I dont want to be 40 living in a tent waking up

first_img Image: Cormac Fitzgerald/ By Cormac Fitzgerald “I don’t want to be 40 living in a tent waking up with a bottle of vodka beside me” Youth homelessness is a huge social and economic issue – what’s being done to stop it? Natasha with Catriona Twomey at the Cork Penny Dinners. Nov 26th 2016, 8:15 PM TWO YEARS AGO, published an extensive study of homelessness in Ireland. Since then the issue has gained traction and is of huge national concern.This week, we are examining homelessness beyond the capital. What is the situation around the whole of Ireland? And what is being done to improve it?NATASHA SPENT MOST of her life in care, up until she was 18.She lived in Clonmel, Co Tipperary, for most of her teens, so when she left care State she stayed there for a time.She moved into the only place she could find in the town: a rundown apartment complex nicknamed “junkie’s paradise”.Natasha, now 20, suffers from depression. One night she overdosed on tablets and as a result lost her home.With nowhere else to turn, she moved to Cork to reconnect with her birth mother and her family.She has been homeless now in Cork city since last January. For four months she slept rough in the grounds of a church near Kent train station.Recently a friend has put her up, but the tenancy isn’t secure and she’s worried she could be on the streets again before long.Speaking to, Natasha says that Cork City Council has been unable to help her in accessing long-term accommodation.Regulations dictate that in most cases a person must able to prove they’ve lived in an area for a certain amount of time before a local authority will put them on the social housing list there.They must be able to show that the place they are registering as homeless is that person’s “centre of interest” and that they did not just come to that place to access homeless or other services there.A person must also be able to prove that they’ve lived 6 months (183 days) out of the last 12 in homeless emergency accommodation before they can qualify for rent supplement. Drinan Street where the Homeless Persons Unit is located in Cork city. Source: Google Maps“I’ve squatted, I’ve slept rough on the streets, I’ve broken into places to try get shelter. I won’t lie about it, it’s what you do to survive,” Natasha tells one rainy morning in Cork city.She has aspirations of going back to college, of getting a job and raising a family, but right now she feels trapped and sees no end in sight.“I want to have a family, I want to have a job that has a good income, I want to do all the normal things that are out there to do,” she says.But I can’t. I feel stuck in the mud. For so long I’ve been trying to move forward and it’s like I literally can’t. I’m stuck in the mud.Youth homelessnessHomelessness among young adults is an ever-growing problem across Ireland.Latest figures from the Housing Department show that there were 733 adults between the ages of 18 and 24 accessing emergency homeless accommodation in Ireland in October.The vast majority (510) of these adults are located in Dublin, where the numbers are highest and which offers the most services and facilities.However, it is a growing problem elsewhere across the country also. The South West, South East and Mid West regions all have growing numbers of young homeless adults. The increase in young homeless adults in Ireland up to September of this year. Source: StatistaMost of these are living in the urban centres of each district: Cork city, Limerick city and Waterford. And there are services in place to help them.In Cork city and Limerick, Focus Ireland operates a youth tenancy programme which is proving to be successful in helping people at risk.The goal of the programme is twofold:To help young people out of homelessness; andTo prevent them becoming homeless in the first place“The idea behind that project is to ensure that people don’t end up in emergency homeless services,” says Ger Spillane, services manager for the south with Focus.“Because my own experience in working in homeless services is that young people – if they don’t come in with an addiction – they certainly acquire one very quickly.So part of the project is to avoid that because I’ve spent too many times going to coroners’ courts or coroners’ inquests for young people who that had happened to.Young people are referred to Focus either through Cork City Council homeless services or Tusla, the child and family agency. Ger Spillane. Source: Cormac Fitzgerald/TheJournal.ieThey are then set up with an apartment or flat somewhere in the city and are provided with therapy and counselling support and assisted by trained workers.The homes are spread out and integrated into the community, to help avoid “ghettoisation” or social exclusion.Spillane says that the project has a strong success rate at preventing young people from becoming homeless after they leave care.Since 2013, Focus says that its project has prevented approximately 100 young people from entering homelessness in Limerick and Cork city through the project.Spillane says that the project’s success not only greatly improves the lives of young people facing homelessness, but is greatly beneficial from a social and economic standpoint for Ireland. A protest being held at emergency accommodation in Dublin earlier this year. Source: Sam Boal/“We’ve had young people in that project who’ve gone back to education and who’ve gone back to work – because stability was brought into their lives,” he says.“You get a lot of people coming out against this kind of stuff, blaming people for their own addiction and questioning why they should get all this.The bottom line is it’s costing us an absolute fortune to keep people in emergency accommodation.The average cost for keeping someone in emergency accommodation for a year is about €29,000. Focus says that projects like youth housing are a better, more effective and efficient way to prevent and combat the issue.Waterford While available services, age demographics and numbers of homeless people vary from county to county across Ireland, similar trends and patterns are emerging across the country.In Waterford, there have been 66 emergency accommodation placements for young people since the beginning of the year. In 2015 around 145 young people (18-26) presented as homeless to the council in Waterford. Waterford. Source: Andrea @ Hotelsireland via Creative CommonsLisa O’Brien is the project leader for the Focus Ireland youth aftercare and youth housing project in Waterford.She points to similar issues as those affecting people in Cork and Limerick – namely lack of access to affordable rental accommodation, lack of suitable employment, lack of adequate social housing and supports.Waterford is Ireland’s 15th most populous county but has the sixth highest number of homeless people staying in emergency accommodation, according to the latest figures.According to O’Brien, this could be down to a number of reasons, including high youth unemployment as well as the issues which similarly apply to Cork and Limerick, above.She says that to help tackle the issue, more focus needs to be put on preventing young people from becoming homeless, and on getting them out as quickly as possible if they do.“It’s very easy and quick for young people to become institutionalised in things like emergency hostels if they have to access them on a regular basis,” she says.“Their main focus there is on survival and not on self-fulfillment, or how they can do better.They’re not thinking even about their future – they’re thinking about tomorrow.“End of my tether” On a rainy day in Cork, Natasha is thinking about her future and what it might hold. Cork city in the rain. Source: Cormac Fitzgerald/TheJournal.ieChristmas is less than a month away. She’s thinking about how she will be homeless for it, and not able to afford to buy presents for her younger siblings.She’s thinking about her 21st birthday in May, and where she will be then.She’s thinking about her family – many of whom are homeless – and whether she’s destined to end up like them.“I’m only 20, I have my entire life to live,” she says.I’ve my 21st coming up in May and I don’t want to be homeless for it.She would like to go back to college and get a qualification to help her travel the world. She has aspirations for her life, but right now she feels lost in the system.“I see other people on the streets and they’re happy with that, that’s the life they’ve adjusted to,” she says.“I don’t want to hit that adjusting point and I’m going to end up doing god only knows what.”When questioned about Natasha’s situation, Cork City Council said in a statement that it does not discuss individual cases for data protection reasons, but that each case has “complex and comprehensive” backgrounds.Natasha feels like she is slipping through the cracks of the system, and is adamant she wants more from her life.I know so many alcoholics in my life. I don’t want to be 40, living in a tent in this weather, waking up with a bottle of vodka beside me.“I don’t want that.”Our #Homeless Ireland 2016 series continues all of this week on Woman at risk of being made homeless brings court action against Dublin City CouncilRead: ‘It’s exploitation’: Homeless charities condemn ‘two-tier’ tenants laws Saturday 26 Nov 2016, 8:15 PMcenter_img Natasha with Catriona Twomey at the Cork Penny Dinners.

Sony responds to PS4 PS Vita bundle rumors Good idea maybe well

first_imgAs the release of the PS4 grows nearer, console bundles have been popping up, on both official product listings, and in rumors. For a while now, we’ve been hearing about a PS4, PS Vita bundle that would be priced at $500, shaving $100 off the price of a brand new PS Vita.Previously, Sony stated it was not planning on releasing such a bundle. However, citing positive response at Gamescom — and likely from seeing the positive response from the blogging world — Sony executive Fergal Gara said the company is reconsidering its position on the PS4, PS Vita bundle. He noted that after demoing the PS4 and Vita’s cross capabilities, the company saw a surge in Vita sales. This surge, Sony feels, demonstrated that more gamers would want a Vita in order to connect to their PS4. So, if that’s the reason gamers want a Vita, giving them the handheld with the PS4 is an obvious choice.Gara said that, at the moment, Sony isn’t producing a retail box that can fit both the PS4 and PS Vita, but the company could easily change direction to make that box and have it out by the PS4’s release. He specifically said, “it’s not a hard thing to do,” so really, Sony just needs to make the call.The decision likely comes down to numbers. Not many people are purchasing a Vita to begin with, so including the unit with a PS4 likely won’t lower its perceived value, since that value is already low. Sony just needs to decide if it wants to lose $100 on each bundled Vita.Thanks to smartphones, dedicated handheld gaming devices need all the help they can get these days, and including a PS Vita with a PS4 for only $100 extra could be the kick in the pants Sony’s portable device needs. The Vita’s hardware was never the device’s problem — the lack of games were (and still are, to some degree) — but with a new Vita revision on the way, getting some units out there with a guaranteed seller like the PS4 would help Sony kickstart a potential Vita revolution.last_img read more

Gurung making a fool out of public eyeing GTA chair Binay Tamang

first_imgDarjeeling: “Bimal Gurung is eyeing the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA) chair while stoking Gorkhaland sentiments. He is making a fool of the public,” stated Binay Tamang, Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) president and chairman, GTA Board of Administrators.The allegation comes in the wake of the Gurung faction of GJM declaring that they are ready to open up dialogue with the state government and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. On Thursday, Col (retd.) Ramesh Allay, a GJM leader owing allegiance to Gurung, stated while talking to media persons in Kalimpong that they had sent a letter to the state government, stating that they are ready to hold a meeting with the Chief Minister. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeGurung had spearheaded an agitation in 2017, which had culminated in a 105 day long bandh. The agitation witnessed widespread violence and the death of 11 persons. Gurung and many of his associates were charged in numerous criminal cases. They are all absconding. Since Gurung was declared an absconder, his name has been struck off the electoral rolls and his properties attached by a court order. Reacting to Allay’s statement, the Binay Tamang faction of the GJM had stated that the statement is proof enough that dialogue with the state government is the correct way out. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killed”If they wanted to sit in a dialogue with the state government then why were Binay Tamang and Anit Thapa dubbed anti-Gorkha and anti-Gorkhaland when they opened up dialogue with the state government in August 2017? After one year if Gurung is looking forward to a dialogue with the state then why oppose Binay Tamang and Anit Thapa?” questioned Suraj Sharma, GJM spokesperson. Sharma stated that it clearly proves the double standards of Gurung. “While he is stoking Gorkhaland sentiments and raising the issue of the death of martyrs on one side, on the other he is opening up back door channels for dialogue with the state. All the violence, unrest, 105 day bandh and death of 11 innocents is a result of Gurung’s political short-sightedness, stubborn attitude and double standards,” retorted Sharma. He stated that Gurung has always been eyeing the GTA chair and compromised the Gorkhaland issue. “In 2011 after 3 supporters died in police firing in Sibchu, Gurung settled for the GTA. Again in 2013 when the process was initiated for the formation of Telangana, Gurung resigned from the GTA. As soon as the agitation peaked and Mangal Singh Rajput committed self-immolation, Gurung immediately returned as GTA chief. Now, after the death of 11 persons and hundreds going to jail, Gurung is again eyeing the GTA chair. For how long will he make a fool of the public?” questioned Sharma.last_img read more

The drivers were issued the points for a variety of issues, including smoking in vehicles and ‘failure to notify of driving offences’ between July and October 2018. Staffordshire Moorlands District Council also issued penalty points to one taxi operator according to the report – which is set to be discussed by the council’s Licensing and Regulatory Committee later this week. Over the same period, compliance checks were carried out at licensed premises in Leek, Biddulph, Cheadle and Werrington – with council offers saying they’d received no reports of smoking in pubs over the period. In the report, council officers added: “If on enquiry officers find evidence that the law is being broken and enforcement is required, they can respond in various ways. “They may instruct or warn by letter; revoke or suspend a licence; and, where the circumstances warrant it, they may formally caution or prosecute without prior warnings and without recourse to alternative sanctions.” Read MoreTown to host Christmas Twilight Market with live entertainment, street food and licenced bar Staffordshire Moorlands District Council have also entered into a new partnership with a company called Personnel Checks to carry out Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks for new and existing taxi drivers in the district. In a report also submitted to the meeting, council officers said Personnel Checks ‘aim to simplify the DBS checking process through delivering a high quality, accurate and professional service’. It added: “Personnel Checks will be operational for Staffordshire Moorlands District Council from January 1 2019, all new drivers and existing renewal drivers will go through this new process.

But all too often, as we have seen recently with the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, this approach comprises patient access to care. However, cutting costs and improving quality do not have to be mutually exclusive. A more effective strategy is to look at how patient care can be improved without increasing spending. Sound too good to be true? For the radiation oncology department at ThedaCare, a Wisconsin-based health network, it became a reality. After implementing ‘lean management’ techniques, the department in one year alone, improved productivity by 30 percent, increased gross revenue by 24 percent and reduced the time from patient referral to treatment by 44 percent. Physician Buy-InWith the guidance of Simpler Healthcare, a consulting group, ThedaCare adopted lean management principles — a methodology, originally developed at Toyota in its Toyota Product System, which trains employees to identify and eliminate waste, thus improving patient care and cutting cost. Thedacare set out to implement lean management first by getting the hospital staff to identify the value stream of the department. This involved analyzing the whole care cycle, from check in at reception, to receiving treatment, to getting test results; each step in the patient’s experience was evaluated to determine if it added value to the process. “Then we looked at the steps that do not produce value – waiting, misdiagnosis, motion transportation – anything that falls under the category of waste. Then we focused on the nonvalue add – in this case the things the patients have to do, but doesn’t provide better care,” said Simpler Healthcare’s General Manager Mike Chamberlain. What is key to the success of implementing lean management in healthcare is physician buy-in. One of the breakthrough improvement events was aimed at helping physicians understand their capacity as far as their schedule is concerned. To help overburdened physicians, the radiation oncology department developed a team approach in which patients were able to receive more face time with hospital staff and physicians received the necessary support to keep on task with their schedule.The Patient’s TakeTo determine the value of their patients’ experiences, the department surveyed patients about their treatment. ThedaCare determined that patients found the most value in the face-to-face interactions with hospital staff. The radiation oncology department quickly went to work, and started a series of rapid improvement events that would help physicians, nurses and staff eliminate the waste in their daily tasks and allow patients more face-to-face interactions. Prepping for New TechnologyThedacare applied lean management practices before installing a Cyberknife radiosurgery system, which represented technology that was new to the facility. To do this, they focused on one thing — the patient and eliminating waste. “Rather than hiring two radiation therapists, another physicist, another dosimetrist, we looked at ways to reduce waste in other processes that would create the capacity to take on this new technology without additional cost,” said Kim Barnas, vice president of the radiation oncology department. “Where we thought we were going to have to hire four FTEs we were able to only hire two.” Reduced Treatment TimesAnother strategy for eliminating waste was to reduce treatment time. “We had a goal of reducing our treatment time, which three years ago was 23 days from first consult to first treatment, by 50 percent each year. In doing that you have to look at all of the components of the process,” said Barnas.“The initial phase begins when a patient comes in for a consult – we do the sim, then the MRI. The dosimetrists get their first plan to the physician and changes are made, and we schedule the first treatment,” said Barnas. “By reducing the time from three days to one day, we improved quality.”The process today is much more streamlined. As Barnas explained, “Now if there needs to be an MRI, we schedule that too. After the sims and the MRI, we have the physician huddle with the radiation therapist, the dosimetrist and the physicist to look at the scans to make sure they are accurate before the patient leaves so that we don’t have to redo the simulation or the MRI. This allows us to get the patient more quickly to treatment, improve quality and reduce costs because there are no duplications or replanning.”Today, ThedaCare has reduced the process to eight days, and the procedure volume has increased. “Our procedures are up 40 percent,” noted Barnas. “In addition to lean management, we are discovering that some of the patients previously treated on the Varian or TomoTherapy can get boosted by Cyberknife. Although our volume is up, our treatment is up at a much more significant rate.” Once the lean management strategy was in full swing at ThedaCare, the physicians saw improvements from a quality care perspective, the administration saw the cost reduction benefit and fortunately the patients have been able to see the greatest benefits.

Delivering Care A patient complaining of chest pain, for example, may have a nuclear medicine stress test at Republic County Hospital. Not only can the patient view their images but, as part of his or her care, encrypted versions may be sent using the Ambra Health platform to a cardiologist at Bryan Medical Center in Lincoln, Neb. There the images are decrypted and archived. An appointment between a cardiologist at the Bryan Medical Center and the patient is scheduled. And the images are reviewed by the cardiologist prior to the patient’s visit.“Our patients trust us that we are doing the right things by them,” Cavazos said.Amplifying care by working in partnership with larger facilities is how Republic County Hospital continues to meet patient needs. Keeping the care process simple, yet engaging the patient, is critically important, he said.“Ease-of-use — and ease-of-access — is the name of the game.” FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s.

How Portals Can Help Using patient portals in combination with secure networks, such as the one from Ambra, makes sense, said Morris Panner, CEO of Ambra Health. “It really makes patients the masters of their data,” he said. “They can easily share their health data with other family members and other institutions. Whatever they want to do with it.”But, because this pairing is not always done, the value of patient portals is constrained.  “You can see your information but you really can’t share it,” Panner said.The potential of portals is well documented. In their published paper on the topic, for example, researchers at the University of Wisconsin (UW) showed that most inpatients and providers were at least interested in using inpatient portals that connected them to their health care data. In an article published in the June 2018 issue of the Journal of Hospital Medicine, the UW authors reviewed published literature regarding these portals, reporting that patients found the portals easy and useful. In an interview with Imaging Technology News, however, lead author Michelle Kelly, M.D., noted that the usefulness of the portals “depends on the patient’s situation.”Adult in-patients throughout UW Health now have access to portals, according to Kelly, and about 65 percent access their data through the portal. “We can’t be there at their bedside 24/7, so patient portals provide a tool for us to engage them and help them engage in their health care when we are not there,” she said.Republic County Hospital routinely provides patients access to their data through a portal that interfaces with the hospital’s electronic medical records system. The small rural hospital uses those data and images to work with larger medical centers in cities that are several hours’ drive away. center_img News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more Sponsored Content | Case Study | Radiation Dose Management | August 13, 2019 The Challenge of Pediatric Radiation Dose Management Radiation dose management is central to child patient safety.

They can directly engage patients; provide access to their images; even help providers meet meaningful use requirements.David-Paul Cavazos said the patient portal at Republic County Hospital in Iola, Kan., makes it easy for patients to access their medical images, engaging patients in their care while images are transferred to other facilities — a process completed using the Ambra Health platform. Cavazos, who served as a radiology tech before becoming CEO of Republic County Hospital, said Ambra provides “a great modern-day solution,” one that gives Republic County Hospital the capabilities needed to thrive.He explained that patients of the 25-bed hospital often call on specialists based at larger medical facilities — an orthopedist or cardiologist, for example — more than 200 miles away in Lincoln, Neb.“In the old days patients had to take hard copy film or CDs with them.

Value medicine has, at its core, an emphasis on prevention. As the population gets older, workers look to extend their livelihood (in fact, the economy, at least in the near term, is depending on it). The ability of healthcare to maintain worker viability will be essential. And it will have to be done cost-effectively. That means keeping a lid on medical expenses.Better healthcare, improved quality of life, lower costs — it’s a challenging hat trick. And it can’t be done without disease prevention. And in that screening will be enormously important.Medical imaging already has the core tool sets upon which to build. The current — and evolving — approach to prostate assessment shows where screening could go. CT lung screening will be a significant step in the same direction only if other technologies are brought in to complement it.Screening is too important to America’s future to bet on single paths of technological development. We cannot simply wait for the right technology to plop serendipitously into our collective lap.Editor’s note: This is the second blog in a four-part series on screening. The first blog, “Screening: How New Looks at Old Modalities Might Turn Imaging Upside Down,” can be found here.

This was a hot topic at the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) 2019 meeting in July.  Greg Freiherr, Industry Consultant Greg Freiherr has reported on developments in radiology since 1983. He runs the consulting service, The Freiherr Group. Effective screening may be the key to America’s future. Only by catching disease early, before disease can injure the patient and impose financial penalties from lost work and medical expenses, can America achieve its dual goals of high-quality healthcare at low cost. Cancer, more than any other disease, exemplifies the promise and challenge.Modern mammography screening may reduce deaths from breast cancer up to 28 percent. This success raises hope that similar gains might be made against other cancers. The use of computed tomography (CT) for lung screening and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for examining the prostate illustrate the two extremes of how this might be approached.Low-dose CT lung screen has come in the wake of failed tests, namely chest X-rays and sputum cytology, neither of which has decreased lung cancer mortality. In contrast, prostate MRI is being pursued as one of several interlocking technologies and techniques that include digital exams performed by gloved physicians, PSA blood tests and ultrasound follow-up.The latest MR advance is non-invasive, thanks to surface coils whose use streamlines patient set-up and accelerates scans. Adding to the future potential of prostate assessment are several positron emission tomography (PET) radiotracers that show promise for identifying prostate cancer, metastatic spread and relapse. Notably new opportunities are also arising in single-photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) and PET/MR.Although screening, diagnosis and monitoring for prostate cancer are still very far from perfect, they exemplify where screening needs to go. Know When to Fold ‘EmRather than depending entirely on a single imaging technology, as does CT lung screening, or heavily so, as does mammography, prostate screening is part of a multi-pronged approach that may provide the flexibility for developers to adjust their R&D and for healthcare strategists to fine tune protocols.The advantage stems from the cautionary tale of putting all your eggs in one basket. Spreading those eggs around provides options. Just as importantly, having multiple options could help developers know when to quit — when to walk away from a technology that has gone sour and pursue more promising ones.All too often innovators, having fallen in love with a technology, doggedly pursue it, wasting huge sums of money in the process. In the case of screening, this could do an even greater harm, delaying the development of effective screening tools.The irony, of course, is that money can limit the development of multiple technologies, leading entrepreneurs to gamble on a “best bet.” Funding can be particularly problematic for publicly held companies, which must account for expenditures to shareholders. This is where a silent partner can come in handy. And there are few in a better position to play this role than the Federal government.Through innovation grants, the Feds scatter seed money like a tech-savvy Johnny Appleseed. Among the sources: the Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer, Small Business Innovation Research, Small Business Technology Transfer and Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research.Those funds too are finite — and getting more so. But the argument for the Feds climbing onboard makes more sense than ever.

AMD ROCm GPUs now support TensorFlow v18 a major milestone for AMDs

first_imgAMD has announced the support for TensorFlow v1.8 for their ROCm-enabled GPUs. This includes the Radeon Instinct MI25. ROCm stands for Radeon Open Compute and it is an open-source Hyperscale-class (HPC) platform for GPUs. The platform is programming-language independent. This is a major milestone in AMD’s efforts towards accelerating deep learning. ROCm, the Radeon Open Ecosystem is AMD’s open-source software foundation for GPU computing on Linux. Mayank Daga, Director, Deep Learning Software, AMD stated: “Our TensorFlow implementation leverages MIOpen, a library of highly optimized GPU routines for deep learning.” There is a pre-built whl package made available for a simple install similar to the installation of generic TensorFlow in Linux. They also provide a pre-built Docker image for fast installation. AMD is also working towards upstreaming all the ROCm-specific enhancements to the TensorFlow master repository in addition to supporting TensorFlow v1.8. While they work towards fully upstreaming the enhancements, AMD will be releasing and maintaining future ROCm-enabled TensorFlow versions, like v1.10. In the post, Daga stated, “We believe the future of deep learning optimization, portability, and scalability has its roots in domain-specific compilers. We are motivated by the early results of XLA, and are also working towards enabling and optimizing XLA for AMD GPUs.” Current CPUs which support PCIe Gen3 + PCIe Atomics are: AMD Ryzen CPUs AMD EPYC CPUs Intel Xeon E7 V3 or newer CPUs Intel Xeon E5 v3 or newer CPUs Intel Xeon E3 v3 or newer CPUs Intel Core i7 v4, Core i5 v4, Core i3 v4 or newer CPUs (i.e. Haswell family or newer). The installation is simple, First, you’ll need the open-source ROCm stack. Then, install the rocm library needs to be installed via APT: sudo apt updatesudo apt install rocm-libs miopen-hip cxlactivitylogger And finally, you install TensorFlow itself (via AMD’s pre-built whl package): sudo apt install wget python3-pipwget install ./tensorflow-1.8.0-cp35-cp35m-manylinux1_x86_64.whl For more details on how to get started, visit the GitHub repository.

have been a different one" Featured Image Credit: ITV Topics: Uk news Tv and filmFor four years that contrast hovered over the fate of Amanda Knox a 24-year-old American exchange student in Italy trapped in a foreign legal system and behind bars for the murder of her British roommate Was she a killer capable of murdering of Meredith Kercher in the pursuit of sexual pleasure Or was she the helpless victim of a prosecutor’s character assassination and a botched police investigationOn Monday an appeals jury in the central Italian town of Perugia sided with the latter portrait It overturned Knox’s conviction for the 2007 murder of Kercher a British student with whom she shared an apartment Knox’s alleged accomplice former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito 27 was also exonerated by the appellate panelThe stunning turnaround hinged on an independent review of DNA evidence that authorities said tied Knox and Sollecito to the crime Kercher 21 was found dead in her room her throat slashed and her body bearing more than 40 wounds and signs of sexual assault The DNA review found that the evidence was severely compromised by sloppy police collection methods and subpar forensic testing a devastating conclusion that prosecutors could not successfully counterTwo hours after the verdict was read out and beamed around the world Knox was set free no more to return to the cell where she has spent most of her adult life She and Sollecito had more than 20 years left to serve under sentences handed down upon their conviction in 2009But the acquittals are unlikely to quell public debate especially among Italians who feel that their judicial system has been smeared by the American media and others who accuse the authorities in Perugia of railroading Knox in a staggering miscarriage of justiceProsecutors have pledged to appeal the case before Italy’s Supreme Court although that body tends to rule on technical points of law rather than on the matters of evidence and character that were presented during the appeals trial"We’re thankful that Amanda’s nightmare is over" her sister Deanna told reporters outside the courtroom where crowds on either side of the case shouted "Victory victory" and "Shame shame" "We are thankful to the court for having the courage to look for the truth and to overturn the conviction" she said Kercher’s family said they respected the verdict but did "not understand how the decision of the first trial could be so radically overturned We still trust the Italian judicial system and hope that the truth will eventually emerge"They had previously declared themselves satisfied with the convictions from the original trial and wanted to see them upheld Instead the Kerchers are now left with grave questions about the police’s handling of the investigationOnly one person remains in prison in connection with Kercher’s death: Rudy Hermann Guede a small-time drug dealer and drifter Guede’s DNA was found at the scene leading to his conviction and sentence of 16 years in prison but he maintains his innocence and has fingered Knox and Sollecito as the killersThe pair’s attorneys say Guede acted alone in the attack Sollecito and Knox have insisted that they spent the evening in question watching a movie at Sollecito’s house smoking pot and having sex and were nowhere near the apartment Knox and Kercher shared"If I had been there as well I would have been dead as well as Meredith" Knox said in a tearful final plea to the jury Monday morning before the panel retired to deliberateProsecutors alleged that she and Sollecito who had been dating for less than a week killed Kercher in a sex game gone horribly wrong Authorities said Knox’s DNA was present on a knife believed to be the murder weapon and that Sollecito’s DNA was found on the clasp of a bra belonging to KercherBut the case against them began to crumble during the appeals trial when an independent review commissioned by the defense cast major doubt on the DNA evidence’s reliability Police detectives had failed to change their gloves when picking up different items in the apartment making contamination of samples likely and the bra was not taken away for testing until 46 days after the slayingProsecutors said they stood by the DNA tests But in overturning the convictions the jury described the evidence in the case as not credibleThe panel did uphold a conviction against Knox of slander for her false accusation that a Congolese barman Diya "Patrick" Lumumba killed Kercher But the three-year prison sentence for that conviction has already been fulfilled by the time she has spent in jailKnox’s family was hopeful enough of her release that they had reportedly booked a flight for her back to Seattle even before the verdict was announced Rumors have also circulated that Knox spent part of her time in prison writing a memoir which would no doubt fetch a hefty sum from eager publishersShe will return home to an expected hero’s welcome her suffering having provided the fodder for the latest cable television obsession Prosecutors and police said her vulnerable looks were the mask of a manipulative liar a sex-crazed American temptress without scruple One lawyer described Knox _ referred to as "Foxy Knoxy" by the tabloids _ as a witchHer backers scoff at such cartoonish but damning descriptions and portray Knox as the victim of an incompetent and prejudiced investigation by authorities who decided on her guilt early on and bent the facts to fit their theory"She was crucified impaled in a public square" defense lawyer Carlo Dalla Vedova told the court last week "Who if not her has been run over by a media tsunami"But defense attorneys have been accused of massaging their client’s image as well with commentators noting how she seemed to dress ever more demurely for her court appearances as time wore onDuring her dramatic plea Monday morning Knox was by turns emphatic and too overcome by emotion to speak She accused the Italian police of betraying the "absolute faith" she had placed in them"I was manipulated I’m not what they say The perversion the violence the disrespect for life and for people _ they don’t belong to me and I haven’t done the things they suggest I did" Knox said in Italian a language she barely knew when she first moved to Perugia four years ago "I haven’t killed I haven’t raped I haven’t robbed I wasn’t there I wasn’t present at this crime"Hours later looking tense and fearful she collapsed into tears when the verdict was read out Her family whooped and embraced in reliefKercher’s relatives sat silent and somber absorbing the news Earlier Stephanie Kercher expressed dismay that her sister’s memory had been lost in the media circus surrounding the appeal"Meredith has been hugely forgotten in all of this" she said "What everyone needs to remember is. which has been criticized for diminishing the significance of rape.
