first_imgBy Jorge Barrera APTN National NewsManitoba Keeewatinowi Okimakanak Grand Chief David Harper’s plan to classify sponsors for the upcoming Assembly of First Nation election event in Winnipeg by traditional clan designations has upset some chiefs in his organization.Chiefs gathered at the AFN’s annual general assembly in Halifax this week selected MKO to host the election for national chief in Winnipeg this coming December.The dismal state of MKO’s finances, however, has led MKO-member chiefs to question whether the organization had the financial ability to host such a large and important event. The organization has been warned the federal Aboriginal Affairs department could put it into co-management or third party management if it doesn’t get its books in order.Yet, despite this, Harper said during the AFN assembly MKO was “financially ready” to host the event.Harper refused requests from APTN National News for an interview.A spokesperson for MKO said the organization would be relying on the Manitoba government, Tourism Winnipeg and third-party sponsors to help pay the bills.In an effort to attract cash, MKO plans to award Bear, Eagle, Sturgeon and Wolf Clan designation to sponsors, according to a sponsorship package obtained by APTN National News. The sponsorship package was drawn up on the assumption the AFN election would be held on Sept. 30.APTN National News confirmed the sponsorship clan plan remains the same for the December event.The document shows that a sponsor who contributes $75,000 or more to the AFN election event will be classified as Bear Clan. An Eagle Clan designation will go to sponsors who contribute $50,000, a Sturgeon Clan designation will be bestowed on sponsors contributing $25,000 and the Wolf Clan goes to sponsors who put up $15,000.Bear, Eagle and Sturgeon Clan-level sponsors will get a chance to attend a private reception with the newly elected national chief, according to the document. All clan-designated sponsors will have a seat on the planning committee for the event.The use of traditional clan designation, however, has upset some MKO member chiefs.“Trying to utilize our sacred clan system for the purpose of this nature is not right. As Indigenous people, a clan system is very sacred to us and to use it as an economic development strategy is not something we should do,” said an MKO-member chief who requested anonymity. “That is not right using our sacred clan system.”Harper’s plan to sell sponsorships for a “spiritual services event” to coincide with the AFN election is also causing concern. Harper, who is a born-again Christian, has organized Gospel jamborees to coincide with MKO events and there is suspicion among some MKO chiefs that the organization’s money is used to support revival services.“There were certain things that were not budgeted for that the grand chief insisted would get funded,” said another MKO member chief. “There were certain revivals (Evangelical Christian services) that he would associate with the businesses we were doing. He has these Gospel jamboree that are usually loosely connected to events that MKO hosts and he would us MKO funds for this.”An official with MKO, who was not authorized to speak on behalf of the organization, said revival and “prayer services” are paid for by sponsorship dollars.Harper is facing increasing discontent from the MKO chiefs who voted him into the job. There is a move to oust the grand chief over allegations of financial mismanagement and suspect transactions with MKO dollars.MKO is facing major financial difficulties, according to documents obtained by APTN National News that showed the organization faced a $976, 025 accumulated deficit as of March 2013.MKO member chiefs say they have received little information about the current state of the organization’s finances. MKO.MKO is currently under a forensic investigation called for the executive council of chiefs. The results of the most recent phase of the forensic audit is expected to be tabled at MKO’s chiefs meeting next week in Norway House First Nation, Man.The forensic audit report will reveal that laptops and cell phones were tampered with before they were handed over to auditors conducting the investigation, according to a copy obtained by APTN National News.Harper is also facing allegations he tried to obstruct the forensic audit.jbarrera@aptn.ca@JorgeBarreralast_img read more

“My office is gathering and carefully reviewing converging reports of both verbal and physical violence arising out of the electoral campaign for the presidential and parliamentary elections on 28 November,” said Luis Moreno-Ocampo in a statement issued by the ICC, which is based in The Hague, the Netherlands. Mr. Moreno-Ocampo urged all parties in the electoral process to refrain from violence, noting that the ICC has jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute perpetrators of serious crimes committed either in the DR Congo or by Congolese nationals since 1 July 2002.“We are keeping watch to ensure that the process does not lead to acts of violence or attacks against the civilian population. We are paying particular attention to reports of inciting hatred, exclusion and physical violence by various political figures in Kinshasa and across the entire country,” he said.“Electoral violence can result in the commission of crimes falling within our jurisdiction. No one should doubt our resolve to prevent crimes or, if need be, prosecute individuals, as we are doing in Kenya and Côte d’Ivoire,” he added.He said his office has the capacity to document any crime within its jurisdiction and, in coordination with domestic courts, will take all necessary action to investigate such crimes.The prosecutor reiterated that people alleged to have committed serious crimes, such as Bosco Ntaganda, for whom the ICC has issued an arrest warrant, must be taken into custody and put on trial. Mr. Ntaganda, a former commander of armed militias in eastern DRC, is accused of playing a central role in enlisting and conscripting children below the 15 and using them in active combat.“The electoral process should not feed a sense of impunity on the part of those responsible for such crimes. On the contrary, it should strengthen the rule of law and the fight against impunity,” said Mr. Moreno-Ocampo.A United Nations report released earlier this week detailed numerous human rights violations during the pre-electoral period in the DRC, and warns that such incidents could threaten the democratic process and result in post-electoral violence.The joint report issued by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and the UN peacekeeping mission in DRC (MONUSCO), documents 188 violations apparently linked to the electoral process that occurred between 1 November 2010 and 30 September this year. 11 November 2011The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) said today he is following the electoral process in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) with “utmost vigilance,” stating that violence related to the presidential and legislative polls later this month will not be tolerated. read more

The Brooklyn Nets lost to the Portland Trail Blazers 108-98 on Monday night at Barclays Center, handing the Blazers their seventh straight victory.The Nets scored on 19 of their first 20 possessions en route to a 40-point opening quarter, but things soon cooled off after Portland’s defense settled in.“I thought it was a testament to our guys as far as how they competed,” said Portland head coach Terry Stotts. “They never lost confidence, they kept competing and kept chipping away at it. When you have that belief that you can do something it makes it easier.”For Portland, Wesley Matthews netted 24 points in the win, while Damian Lillard contributed 19 points and nine assists and Mo Williams added 12 points off the bench.“It never felt like we were out of the game,” said Matthews. “They were on a roll and we weren’t getting any stops, we never felt out of the game.”Portland trailed 63-56 at halftime before assuming control midway through the third quarter. Matthews tied the score at 69-69 with a driving layup and Aldridge hit a jumper moments later to put the Blazers in front.In the fourth quarter, Mo Williams’ floater in the lane with four seconds left had Portland’s lead at eight points heading into the final frame. Portland quickly pushed its lead to double figures and kept it until Paul Pierce hit a  layup making it 105-96  but with 1:03 left in the game the Nets never recovered.Following the game, the Nets, who fall to 3-7 on the season,  held a players-only meeting. According to  the NY Post, guard Joe Johnson spoke about the private huddle, stating,“Just talking about the game, and what we’ve got to figure out…We’ve just got to get some chemistry, because when we get stagnant to where we can’t get a bucket, we have to have something we can go to and we’ve just got to figure it out.” read more

Ohio State’s junior-forward Mason Jobst (26) steals the puck away from NotreDame’s sophomore forward Mike O’Leary (19) during a Big Ten conference matchup at the Schottenstein Center on November 3, 2017 in Columbus, Ohio. OSU lost 1-4. Credit: Alex Hulvalchick | For the LanternThe No. 6 Ohio State men’s hockey team will go on the road for the final time this season against No. 10 Minnesota, aiming to secure the program’s first-ever season sweep of the Gophers. Although that’s significant, it means a bit more for redshirt sophomore defenseman Wyatt Ege.Ege hails from Elk River, Minnesota, which is just outside the twin cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Ege said a win against the Gophers would be huge, not just for the team, but for his family watching the game from the stands.“It’d mean a lot. Not playing for them, playing for a different school. You play for big time Ohio State now,” Ege said. “To go home and get a couple wins in front of my family and some people I know will be awesome.” Ohio State (19-7-4, 12-7-1-0 Big Ten) is coming off a weekend series split against top-ranked Notre Dame, with a narrow 2-1 loss on Feb. 9 and a 5-1 win Saturday. Minnesota (18-13-1, 9-10-1-1 Big Ten) returns home after sweeping Wisconsin on the road by a combined score of 11-3 in a two-game weekend series. With a record of 11-3-1, the Buckeyes have had ample success on the road.Ohio State assistant coach JB Bittner said completing a season sweep in college hockey is always tough, regardless of the opponent.“Even Friday and Saturday is hard, then you throw in the season series of four games, that’s really tough to do,” Bittner said. “We’ll expect that they’ll be at their best this weekend.”The Golden Gophers have a surplus of scoring depth with five players registering at least 20 points each. Junior forward Tyler Sheehy earned the Big Ten First Star of the Week this week, racking up three goals and five points in two games against Wisconsin.The forward depth doesn’t just stop at Sheehy. Minnesota also has one of the most electrifying players in the country in freshman forward Casey Mittelstadt.Mittelstadt was the eighth overall pick in the 2017 NHL draft by the Buffalo Sabres. Mittelstadt also helped Ohio State associate head coach Steve Miller and the United States win a bronze medal at the 2018 U-20 World Junior Hockey Championship, during which he earned Most Valuable Player honors.“He’s an elite player, one of the elite players in the country,” Bittner said. “We’ll just be aware when they’re on the ice with him and take away his time and space, don’t let him have freedom to kind of do what he wants.”Traveling to 3M Arena at Mariucci will be a test for the Buckeyes, not just because Minnesota has the top home record in the Big Ten at 12-5-0, but it has a bigger ice sheet than any other venue.Minnesota’s rink is Olympic sized (200-feet long, 100-feet wide) instead of the average ice rink size (200-feet long, 85-feet wide), giving a skilled team like the Gophers a lot of room to make plays. Although the ice size has changed since the teams first met in Columbus, Minnesota is still the same team.“I think their tendencies would be similar, but just the way they do everything will be different. They have a lot more room,” redshirt junior goaltender Sean Romeo said. “They’re a skilled team. They love having that room on the ice. It helps them, but it’s nothing that we’re not ready for.”Romeo earned the Big Ten Second Star of the Week Tuesday for his stellar goaltending against Notre Dame. Romeo gave up just three goals and had a .957 save percentage, along with a career-high 39-save performance in Saturday’s win. Romeo offered a simple mentality on how he will approach the game on the bigger ice sheet with a wide grin on his face.“Just got to stop the puck,” Romeo said.Puck drop for the weekend series is at 9 p.m. Friday on Big Ten Network, then 5 p.m. Saturday on ESPNU. read more

Hypnosis works better than strong anaesthetic and could soon become the norm for elderly people undergoing arthritis operations following a landmark trial.Medics have hailed the results of a new study where anaesthetic powerful enough to put patients to sleep was successfully replaced with a virtual reality experience.Participants in need of shoulder, hand or knee operations were given headsets and taken on a virtual submarine tour, with a soothing female voice pointing out various fish and other underwater features.They had each been given a local anaesthetic, but the virtual reality hypnosis distraction (VRHD) was used to replace the intravenous sedation such patients would normally have got.This can put people to sleep, but does not induce the full controlled coma of a general anaesthetic.Doctors at the CUB Erasmus Hospital in Brussels found that the VRHD successfully replaced intravenous sedation in three quarters of patients who had the submarine sedation during the operation.Meanwhile 90 per cent of those who had VRHD for ten minutes before as well as during the operation did not require intravenous sedation.The researchers said virtual reality hypnosis would be ideal for elderly patients undergoing these types of non-major joint operations because they do not come with the risks of heavy sedation and the longer recovery time.Intravenous sedation typically causes side-effects such as drowsiness, headaches and dry mouth for several hours.Dr Delphine Van Hecke, who co-led the research, said: “While it is not clear exactly how virtual reality works to reduce anxiety and pain, it’s thought that it creates a distraction that stops the mind feeling pain.“Further studies should focus on other procedures suited for the use of VRHD, particularly its potential benefit in children as premedication or during low pain procedures.”Presented at the Euroanaesthesia Congress in Vienna, the results also showed that patients receiving VRHD showed similar comfort and satisfaction levels before and during the procedure as those given intravenous sedation.The virtual reality software, which allowed the patients to look round 360 degrees, was designed to slow the patients’ breathing rhythm.Dr Dragos Chirnoaga, the other lead researcher, said: “Given the immersive and distracting nature of the virtual reality experience, this technology has the ability to act as a preventative intervention transforming local anaesthesia into a less distressing and potentially pain-free medical procedure.”The trial involved 60 adults scheduled for orthopaedic surgery with a local anaesthetic. A control group of twenty were randomly assigned standard intravenous sedation without any virtual reality, while a second group was given VRHD during the procedure and only given intravenous sedation if patients reported pain scores of three out of 10.The third group of 20 started the VRHD before the procedure. The results also showed a reduction in anxiety in patients who had not had intravenous sedation compared to those who had.One-off cases of people undergoing operations without anaesthetic following hypnosis have long been reported, however scientists have until now failed to devise a standardised hypnosis approach which works for all patients.Dr Chirnoaga said his method would need to be trialed on larger patient bodies before being approved for general use. Parallel research is also taking place into the genetic explanations for pain in a bid to devise therapies to “switch off” genes responsible.

first_imgRapid browser release cycles are old hat at this point. Google Chrome got the ball rolling with promises of a new stable version every six weeks. Mozilla answered back, promising to get Firefox up to version 7 by the third quarter of 2011. Heck, even Microsoft has stepped up to offer bleeding-edge releases with Internet Explorer 9 and 10 platform previews.The case is no different with Opera, which has been an innovator in the web browser space since setting out on its journey way back in 1994. Despite the recent departure of co-founder John S. von Tetzchner, it’s business as usual in Oslo. Just over a week ago, the company released Opera 11.50 (codenamed Swordfish). To date, it’s seen more than 32 million downloads worldwide.Now it’s time for the Internet waters to meet the company’s newest effort: Wahoo, Opera 12.The browser’s first release is all about delivering a handful performance and stability fixes, though Opera assures that the “juicy stuff” is on the way. For the time being, it might be more interesting to take a look at the company’s choice of codename.The Wahoo is a tropical fish, and from looking at the vector-y version above you might have guessed that it’s commonly mistaken for the barracuda. If you’ve got a sharp memory and follow Opera development, you’ll no doubt recall that Opera 11.10 was, in fact, codenamed barracuda. Opera 11.10 offered a number of improvements, from a zippier Presto rendering engine and improved power saving features to richer HTML5 support and enhancements to the browser’s trademark Speed Dial page.If the Wahoo name is any indication, we can expect a similar list of enhancements to accompany the launch of Opera 12 once it’s finalized.More at Operalast_img read more

first_imgRewind to last week, if you will. On Tuesday, after the “Let’s Talk iPhone” event that has now been analyzed to death, it sunk in that Apple’s revolutionary Siri personal assistant wasn’t an iOS 5 feature, but an iPhone 4S feature. Was it due to hardware limitations, or marketing? Now that reports are coming in that the 4S totes 512MB of RAM, it’s getting harder to say that this was entirely a hardware-based decision.Those who follow Apple and tech news have known for some time that the company would be delivering voice recognition technology in iOS 5. When the firmware update was first detailed in early June, there was no mention of the Nuance-powered feature. Most of us concluded that this was because Siri wasn’t quite ready for showcasing. But now we know why it was held back – it was set to be an exclusive for the next iPhone, rather than a universal iOS 5 feature.It’s quite possible that Siri couldn’t run up to Apple’s standards of smoothness on other iOS devices. The A5 chip powering the iPhone 4S is a big leap forward from the A4 inside of the iPhone 4 and iPad 1. Perhaps they didn’t want to compromise the experience for us with a laggy, choppy, or slow Siri. Perhaps.But what about the iPad 2? With the revelation that the 4S probably carries 512MB of RAM under the hood (as reported by TUAW and several other sites), this makes the engines of the two devices more or less identical. Both have the A5 chip, and both have identical RAM. Therefore, if Siri can run up to Apple’s standards on the iPhone 4S, it should be able to do the same on the iPad 2. Yet there has been no mention of the personal assistant on Apple’s tablet. What’s up with that?Even incremental Apple hardware updates need a killer feature. Sure, with the iPhone 4S being roughly twice as fast as the iPhone 4, and a phenomenal 8MP camera in tow, its performance should see a huge boost over the 2010 model. But those specs lack that certain draw that gets people excited and gives them that extra itch to upgrade early. Just ask Android tablet makers how specs alone fare in selling a product.Siri, on the other hand, is like nothing we’ve ever seen before. It answers your questions, even when spoken in a conversational tone. It works with a variety of iOS apps to perform common tasks by simply telling it to. It blurs the line between speech recognition and artificial intelligence. Siri can be the kind of killer feature that the iPhone 4S needs.If the iPhone 4 and the iPad 2 got Siri along with iOS 5, then the iPhone 4S could have conceivably been Apple’s most boring update in years. Not weak, mind you, but lacking sizzle. But with Siri, while the latest iPhone may not be the revolutionary iPhone 5 that many were pining for, it still has at least one feature that’s revolutionary.It could be argued that Siri hasn’t been made available for the iPad because speech recognition lends itself more to a phone than a tablet. This makes sense, to some degree. Tablets are more often used in a comfortable environment, when there is nothing to keep you from leisurely browsing for information on the beautiful 9.7 inch display. Phones, meanwhile, are used more while walking, driving, or in a pinch. These are the times when Siri makes the most sense.So I won’t take the hard line that Apple definitely tied Siri to the 4S strictly for marketing. It could be that older devices just wouldn’t be up to snuff, and that the iPad 2 doesn’t need it all that badly. But I will say that – at the very least – it’s extremely convenient for them to have it exclusive to the iPhone 4S, which is otherwise lacking in “magical” new features.last_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Amad ‘Jay’ Malkoun, the former Comancheros bikie boss, that survived a recent bomb attack in Glyfada, Athens, is set to make millions on a land deal at Donnybrook, 35 kilometres north of Melbourne.Malkoun, recovering from serious burns following the attack, is currently in an Athens hospital.Meanwhile, he is set to reap $40 million from a proposed housing estate on his Donnybrook farm according to a report in The Age.Local property experts say the site is presently worth about $20 million, but could be worth $60 million once the development is complete. He had bought the farm for $950,000 in 2009 and owns a 95 per cent stake of the property.Of course, the subdivision proposal could be complicated by a government plan to acquire part of Malkoun’s land to build sewerage infrastructure.Greek police are meanwhile investigating Malkoun’s criminal associations in Asia and Europe, where he established a Comancheros chapter. Malkoun’s Mercedes-Benz exploded when he tried to start it outside a gym. Two men dragged him from the wreckage.last_img read more

first_imgIf schools aren’t complying with an interstate agreement designed to smooth the transition for military children transferring to a new school district, families should make sure military leaders are aware, the Army’s top officer said this week during a session at the Association of the U.S. Army annual meeting.“Don’t assume we know,” said Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley.All 50 states and the District of Columbia had adopted the Interstate Compact for Educational Opportunity for Military Children as of last year, with states now in various stages of implementing the agreement, reported Army Times.The goal of the interstate compact is to make transition easier so that military children — who typically attend from six to nine different school systems from K-12 — are afforded the same opportunities as other children. The compact requires participating states to follow common guidelines in handling issues such as enrollment, class placement, records transfer, immunization requirements, graduation requirements, attendance, exit testing and extracurricular opportunities.And while the military doesn’t have the authority to enforce the compact, the services are trying to encourage schools to follow its provisions, officials said during the family forum.If schools are not following the agreement, there’s the option of talking about it “in the public sphere,” Milley said. “[But] we prefer states do it of their own volition,” he said. “For the most part, it’s being done.” Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

first_img The U.S. Department of Agriculture will not regulate plants whose genomes are altered using gene-editing technology.The agency has quietly given the green light to a handful of gene-edited crops since 2016. But last week’s announcement made the affair official.Still a relatively new technique, genome editing with CRISPR helps expand traditional plant breeding tools; the method can introduce new plant traits more quickly and precisely, according to the USDA.AdChoices广告The process—which falls under the larger umbrella of biotechnology—involves manipulating the plant’s genes through recombinant DNA technology.“With this approach, USDA seeks to allow innovation when there is no risk present,” Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue said in a statement. “At the same time, I want to be clear to consumers that we will not be stepping away from our regulatory responsibilities.“While these crops do not require regulatory oversight, we do have an important role to play in protecting plant health by evaluating products developed using modern biotechnology,” he continued. “This is a role USDA has played for more than 30 years, and one I will continue to take very seriously, as we work to modernize our technology-focused regulations.”One of three federal agencies that regulate products of food and agricultural technology, USDA focuses on protecting planet health. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates the sale, distribution, and testing of pesticides, while the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) oversees food and feed safety.“Plant breeding innovation holds enormous promise for helping protect crops against drought and diseases while increasing nutritional value and eliminating allergens,” Perdue said.“Using this science,” he continued, “farmers can continue to meet consumer expectations for healthful, affordable food produced in a manner that consumes fewer natural resources. This new innovation will help farmers do what we aspire to do at USDA: do right and feed everyone.

first_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global May 27, 2019 5 min read Register Now » For most of us, payday is a relief. For the typical small business owner, it’s a nail-biter.In her latest book, “Fintech, Small Business & the American Dream,” Karen G. Mills, senior fellow at Harvard Business School, shares one entrepreneur’s payday struggles. In chapter eight, Mills profiles a brewery owner who isn’t sure whether she can afford to pay both her team and her vendors. Until she strings together data from dozens of apps and accounts, she doesn’t know whether her business will be in the black or red that month.If you think Mills might have cherry-picked her example, consider that 63 percent of small business owners surveyed by online lender Kabbage say they’re regularly stressed about cash flow. The problem is so persistent that more than half of them had even gone multiple months without paying themselves.Entrepreneurship is financially risky, to be fair. But the brewery owner’s struggles — scattered services, insufficient data and a lackluster user experience — are ones Mills argues the market can solve.Related: 10 Expert Tips on Managing Cash Flow as a New BusinessThree Providers, One PlatformAt present, three companies seem poised to fulfill Mills’ vision for small business leaders. Although none yet offers a one-stop fintech tool, they’ve each got a good chance of becoming one. Intuit, provider of QuickBooks, TurboTax and Mint, has the most tools but arguably the greatest challenges ahead of it. Not only do QuickBooks, TurboTax and Mint each have their own use cases, but they command loyalty from distinctly different user bases.The reason is based in Intuit’s business strategy. Since its founding in 1983, Intuit has made at least 28 acquisitions to broaden its service offerings. For online banking software, it bought Digital Insight in late 2006. The next year, it acquired Electronic Clearing House for check-processing power. That same month, it purchased Homestead Technologies for the company’s e-commerce tools. In 2009, it added online payroll processing by acquiring PayCycle.Intuit’s challenge is now consolidating all of those services and more within a single interface. Before it can truly be called the fintech platform to rule them all, Intuit needs to show it has the brand strength and UX skills to build a unified customer experience.Related: Can FinTech Really Help Small Businesses?Contemporary CompetitionThe second company working toward Mills’ dream for entrepreneurs has precisely the opposite issues of Intuit: Small business lending platform Kabbage may have mastered its niche, but it’s missing many of the peripheral financial services that small business owners need.Kabbage’s main challenge stems from the fact that it’s barely a decade old. Because it grew up in the digital era, Kabbage gives small business owners the ability to link third-party business accounts, such as Amazon sales and UPS shipping data, to be approved for funding in minutes. But because it came of age so recently, Kabbage could struggle for traction in spaces like tax preparation, business budgeting and credit card processing — areas that larger peers like Intuit are sure to fight for.What Kabbage lacks in scale, however, it may be able to make up for with its user experience. Because of its digital roots, Kabbage’s user experience beats that of many traditional banks. When UserZoom compared it to Wells Fargo, the UX researcher found that Kabbage users were 16% more successful at identifying the true cost of a 12-month loan than those who do business with the major bank.Related: How Fintech Advances Are Creating New Opportunities for Micro-BusinessesSquaring OffFounded in 2009, Square is another digital native that may fulfill Mills’ vision. Its advantages and challenges, however, are different than the ones Kabbage faces.Although Square has an app, the truth is that most small business owners see it as a point-of-sale solution. Mention Square, and most will think first about the company’s iPad-like register terminals. Despite the fact that it also offers payroll services and small business loans, Square has struggled to brand itself as more than a credit card processor.To be sure, point-of-sale and card-processing tools are critical to many small businesses, particularly those in the retail space. But at present, Square’s offerings are missing the data feeds that small business owners need. Its Square Capital page claims that application is easy, but it also notes that small business owners’ eligibility “comes down to [their] history with Square.” If Square hopes to be a one-stop platform, it needs a richer array of data feeds. Given the walled garden it’s built, that’s going to be difficult.As Mills makes clear, multiple financial firms have cobbled together pieces of her “one platform” ideal. Intuit has the breadth, Kabbage has the data and Square has the hardware to stay top of mind. Which will win? That’s a question that only small business owners can answer. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.last_img read more

Inside sources familiar with the situation told Bloomberg that the public filing will likely happen in spring 2019. Numerous sources reported that the news caused a significant jump in the parent company’s stock price.GE announced the pending spin off of its healthcare division in June, which the company said would take two to three years to complete. The industrial giant has experienced turmoil in recent years as its profits have continuously fallen. The financial difficulties have led to numerous changes in upper management, including the replacement of its CEO twice in less than 18 months.  The healthcare division has been one of the most profitable sectors for GE, bringing in $3.5 billion in revenue in 2017 on $19 billion in sales, according to Bloomberg. The life-sciences division accounts for approximately 25 percent of the company’s sales as well.Goldmans Sachs, Bank of America, Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase and Morgan Stanley are reportedly working with GE on the IPO.“GE Healthcare’s vision is to drive more individualized, precise and effective patient outcomes. As an independent global healthcare business, we will have greater flexibility to pursue future growth opportunities, react quickly to changes in the industry and invest in innovation. We will build on strong customer demand for integrated precision health solutions and great technology with digital and analytics capabilities as we enter our next chapter,” said GE Healthcare President and CEO Kieran Murphy following the spinoff announcement in June. Murphy will continue to lead the standalone GE Healthcare.For more information: www.gehealthcare.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Radiographic Fluoroscopy (RF) | August 09, 2019 Shimadzu Medical Systems Receives FDA 510(k) for FluoroSpeed X1 RF System Shimadzu Medical Systems USA, a subsidiary of Shimadzu Corp., announced they have received U.S. Food and Drug… read more News | Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) | August 06, 2019 Canon Medical Introduces Encore Orian MR Upgrade Program Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. is helping to provide low-cost patient care solutions for its customers with the launch… read more Technology | Cybersecurity | August 07, 2019 ScImage Introduces PICOM ModalityGuard for Cybersecurity ScImage Inc. is bridging the gap between security and functionality with the introduction of the PICOM ModalityGuard…. read more center_img News | Radiology Business | August 01, 2019 Philips Completes Acquisition of Carestream Health’s HCIS Business … read more Related Content News | Breast Imaging | August 02, 2019 Volpara to Distribute Screenpoint Medical’s Transpara AI Solution Volpara Solutions and ScreenPoint Medical BV signed an agreement under which Volpara will sell ScreenPoint’s Transpara… read more Key Topics for Radiology Administrators at AHRA 2019Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 7:33Loaded: 2.15%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -7:33 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

first_imgOn if he is running“I’ve been running. I’ve been running for two weeks now, three weeks.”On if he is on the table still“I’m squatting and leg pressing and pulling sleds. I’ve moved on from the table and progressed from there. I’m pretty close to being able to just do the normal workout.”On his confidence level being high“I feel great. I’m being constantly slowed down. You feel so good that you think you are ready for everything. That’s something that I learned the first time going through this is you really have to listen to people around you. I think I’m ready to go out and do everything and I’m not. I know I’m not deep down. You just feel good and you want to do more and more. You are coming off of surgery and crutches, a brace, and then all these things that you just want to jump into things and you have to slow yourself down or have somebody slow you down.” On where he is with the strength test in comparison with his other knee“They actually don’t do that. They have this machine, I forget what it’s called now, but it gauges the percentages of strength in each muscle and they actually don’t do that anymore because they found that it’s bad for the patella tendon. Don’t do that. I’m not far off as far as strength is concerned. The last thing that comes is the bulk and the size and the mass of the muscle and the muscles in the leg. I’m not far off as far as percentages are concerned.” On how he is coming along“I’m coming along great. I’m three and a half, almost three and a half months out of surgery. I’m doing great. You get the, ‘Are you ahead of schedule or are you behind schedule?’ Going through this twice, there’s ahead of schedule, and then there’s professional athlete ahead of schedule or behind schedule. I think that gets kind of blown out of proportion. I’m going to be ready to rock and roll by the season, and I’m definitely going to be ready by that, definitely going to be ready for camp and shooting to be getting reps in our mandatory mini, and hopefully in some of the OTA practices.”On if he has done anything different in his rehab to speed up the recovery process“Nothing different. I think things have changed so fast in the medical field from going through this in 2006 and now 2015. There are some things that they don’t do anymore. There are some things that studies have come out on and they’ve said this is actually hindering your process. There are some things that they would never think of doing anymore that they do back then. You just do it, because that’s what everybody says. The research and the data and all those things have changed so fast, because the medical field is always changing and progressing. There are some different techniques, I think, some of the things that I’m doing but nothing drastic.” On if there will be more pressure on the offense because there are questions on defense“I hope so. I enjoy that part of it, that challenge of it, but that’s what we were saying last year I think. There was all the talk about losing Karlos Dansby and what are we going to do, and then we came out and were pretty good on defense last year. We expect to be pretty good on defense this year. But, I kind of like going into a season thinking, alright we might have to score 35 or we might have to score X to be able to beat these teams. It’s a great challenge. It’s a great way to go into an offseason, because it puts a lot of pressure on you and you know what you expect of yourself and expect of the guys around you.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo On how much his last knee injury and rehab has helped in this recovery process“A lot more than I expected. You think of something that happened 10 years ago, and you have very vague memories, but then you put yourself in the same exact everything and a lot of things come back to you that you had forgotten about. There’s been so many times that I have thought of, ‘Well, did it feel like this last time or did I do this at this point last time?’ There are so many of those things that come up that you completely forgot about it and you have never thought about until three weeks ago or a month and a half ago and I hadn’t thought about it since 2008. I’ve learned a lot and as I’ve gotten older and been in this league for a longer time, I’ve realized how important all the things you go through and all the lessons you learn as a young guy or the middle point in your career, whatever it may be.” On if he’s at a point in his recovery where he has a set timetable or if it’s still a wait-and-see“There are certain things, and the physical therapists and different people, the doctors and these people that have come together and done these studies, there’s a certain place you want to be at nine months, there’s a certain place you want to be at 12 months and so on. I don’t even know what month it is when that mandatory minicamp is, but I’m shooting for that. That’s my goal, and like I said, hopefully at some point some of the OTA practices. Until we get there, I don’t know, but I’m shooting to get some reps at some of those practices. Nine months will be training camp and I’ll be ready for that.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer stopped to chat with the media Thursday at the team’s Tempe training facility.Palmer was there to discuss his recovery from the ACL injury he suffered in a Nov. 9 win over the St. Louis Rams.Here is some of the best of what the quarterback had to say:“Hello everybody. Sorry I’m late. I was just getting a tour of the new facility. (Reporter: “How does it look?”) Awesome — I can’t wait. It’s come a long way. I’ve been here, but I haven’t been here every day. It’s coming up fast. Looks like it’s not too far away, and I was just talking to a couple of guys that have been in there, talking to some of the guys in there working. It’s going to be first-class. I can’t wait. It’s going to be awesome.” On if he’s in Bruce Arians’ ear trying to convince him he’ll be ready for minicamp“No, I think he has a certain level of trust with me. He’s also going to be talking to Tom Reed and everybody else on the training staff and see exactly what they think. Like I said, my mindset is go-go-go and it’s their job, that’s actually what the training staff is to do, and they’re going to do a good job holding me back or pushing me, whatever it may be.”On his feelings about the quality of the team next season“As good as I’ve been on, and we’re only going to get better next week I think. Just the trust and faith that you have in Steve (Keim) and his whole crew, and Bruce (Arians), to bring in the right guys for the right spots, because we have a good group and all they try to do is add every year. They’ve done a good job since Steve and Bruce have been together. The sky’s the limit. My expectations are very high that we’re going to get even better next week.”On how encouraging it is to have Larry Fitzgerald back for two more years“I’m as excited as anybody. Obviously, everybody in the Valley and in the state is excited to see Larry back, especially back for two more. It’s great.”center_img On where they most need to improve on offense“Everywhere. Going back and watching us again for the second time, everywhere, third down; I think if there’s one thing you noticed about us offensively is there’s some really good stuff and some really bad stuff. There are some really good streaks of a game or a third down just this week or a third down these two weeks, and then it was not good these two weeks; kind of streaky, hot and cold, hit or miss. Now that you’re looking back, that’s great. There’s great stuff to study. There’s great stuff to learn from. We’ll get in here and watch film with these young guys, see the good and see the bad. When you see yourself do it, you know you can do it, and there’s that confidence that you get from that. The best teams do it every week. The teams that win the Super Bowl are great on third down, in the red zone, four-minute, whatever it may be, short yardage, they do it every week. That’s where we aspire to be and that’s where we can be, because we’ve done it for a couple weeks. We just need to figure out why we didn’t do it for a week or two weeks here and there.” Comments   Share   On if he was hard to be around when he was in the funk he mentioned earlier“Yeah, actually my wife brought that up. We had a date night last week or two weeks ago and she brought that up, and I quickly changed the subject. She reminded me of some different things that had happened that, when you’re in that funk you just kind of, things just kind of fly right over the top of your head. Some things flew past me that I needed to apologize for, and I did.”On if he’s had any lingering effects from his shoulder injury last year“Shoulder has been great. Everything has been great.”On if the Cardinals have talked to him about his contract and restructuring“Yeah, I did that maybe a month ago, restructured and changed some things for salary cap reasons.”On if his belief that this team can do something special adds to the motivation in trying to get back“Oh no doubt. You can play in this league a long time and just not play on very good teams. There are a lot of guys that come in the league and don’t ever win a Super Bowl and don’t ever have those runs. Just getting an opportunity to be on a team that you know can make a run is exciting. It’s exciting in January, February, March and April, going up into training camp. There are a lot of guys that live in the area that play on this team and are here full-time. There’s a bunch of guys I see every single day, and we talk about it every single day. Just seeing Tyrann (Mathieu) this morning and talking about our…just different things that come up, we know we have a shot. There are a lot of teams that don’t. There are a lot of teams that are thinking about 2016, 17, 18, ‘Maybe we’ll do this, maybe we’ll do that,’ but this is an exciting time to be on this team. It’s an exciting time to try to make this 53-man roster come August, because you know that the right pieces are in the right places, a good mix of old guys, good mix of young guys, good mix of really talented guys, good mix of great football players, great leaders; it’s just a really good group of guys. We’ve got a lot of work to do and a lot of things to figure out, but we’ll be ready for it.” On what a typical week is like for him“Typical week now — I’m in rehab Monday through Friday, get in at like 8:15, 8:30, get done about 12:45, I got here at 1:00, so like 12:50. Monday, Wednesday, Friday are run days, hard run days, agility days. Tuesday and Thursday are heavy lifting days. Every day is for four to five hours. I try to do more of the position specific, more functional movement stuff that is directly related to playing the quarterback position as far as rehab or strength stuff.”On when the negative emotion flipped and he became excited for the next season “That’s a good question. It took me a little while to get over. It takes you a little while to get over and then the season goes on, and we finish the way we did. All those emotions – the what-if game you try not to play. All that goes and then you have surgery and then you are in a boot, or you are in a cast and on crutches. You have to start walking slowly and then start barely walking steps upstairs. It took a long time to just get out of that funk you get in just because you have surgery and you are a month out of surgery and you just want to go run. You want to sweat, but you can’t because you have stitches in your knee and there are infection concerns and all these things. Really until I started being able to sweat and work out again and feel like I am training for football as opposed to just going in and doing leg extensions, calf raises and some things that seem monotonous or silly at the time. The last month or so really has been fun again, because I’ve been lifting weights and getting ready for 2015.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling On what the upside is to practicing before training camp“I’m a rep guy. I’ve always tried to take every single rep or have taken every single rep. I don’t need to anymore, but that’s the way I have been my entire life. That’s something that is his job to do, because I always going to say, ‘Yeah, I’m good. Let’s go.’ That’s on Bruce’s plate and our training staff and Tom Reed and those guys. They do a great job. They will be very on top of it, I’m sure. That’s not my job. My job is to perform and get better and to work and be in the huddle with these guys as much as I can and I’m going to be in there as much as I can. It’s their job to pull me out, slow me down or hold me back, whatever that may be.”On if he can throw“I’m throwing every day. I throw five days a week right now.” On how difficult it was to watch the team in the playoffs without him“That’s the toughest part of this sport is injuries and not being able to play — whether it’s not playing because you are out on the street and a team won’t sign you or not playing because you are injured. That’s one of the toughest parts. I think that was a lesson I learned having the knee injury years back is you can’t play the what-if game or the coulda-woulda-shoulda game. You can’t do it, because at the end of the season there are 31 other teams that are doing that, and there’s only one team that’s content. Everyone else is playing the what-if game. The team that lost in the Super Bowl or the team that was in the Divisional Round, whatever it may be — you can’t do that. You‘ll keep yourself up at night and drive yourself crazy. You just have to move past it and take care of each day. One of the things that I’ve learned and loved learning from Bruce is…one of his biggest things is he walks into the meeting room every day during practice or during the season and says, ‘All you can control is today and handle today’s business.’ Playing that what-if game and thinking back on years past or whatever it may be, you are just going to drive yourself nuts doing that.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more
