Olympiakos Knocks Off Malaga

first_imgATHENS – For a second time, Olympiakos has put a hurting on a Spanish team in Euroleague basketball play, routing visiting Unicaja Malaga 73-55, a week after bumping off Laboral Kutxa, and going to 3-2 in the standings in its group as it tries to rebound from poor play in Greece’s domestic league.The impressive win came despite an off night from captain and star shooter Vassilis Spanoulis, who scored only two points with one basket in 15 attempts, far off his usual dead-eye form. It was left to Giorgos Printzeis and and Bryant Dunston, out of Queens, N.Y. and Fordham.The teams were tied 17-17 after before Olympiakos took a six point lead, 37-31 at the half and then began to run away with it in the third period, putting down the Big D on the Spaniards, limiting them to only 10 points, to lead 55-41.That was too big for Malaga to overcome in the final 10 minutes, especially with Dunston bombing away from three-point land, hitting five in a row, to finish with 16 points, six rebounds and his forte, blocking shots, swatting away two of them. He is still Fordham’s all-time rejections leader.While Olympiakos was regaining its style, the Greek team Panionios dropped its fourth straight in Euroleague play, falling to Red Star Belgrade, 78-66 and found itself eliminated with a fourth straight loss.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Gay Collins Gets NBA Welcome

first_imgLOS ANGELES — Jason Collins has received support from everyone from his teammates to Billie Jean King since becoming the first openly gay athlete to play in one of the United States’ four major professional leagues.Collins said that he’s received phone calls, texts and emails, as well as messages on Facebook and Twitter, and has been spending time “just trying to thank everyone for their support.”The 7-footer said one of the most meaningful messages was a text from King, the former tennis great“She just got back from Sochi. With all that’s happening with the loss of her mother, she was great. It was really nice to hear from her. It was very meaningful and very much appreciated,” Collins said.King and two other openly gay athletes — Brian Boitano and Caitlin Cahow — were selected for President Barack Obama’s official U.S. delegation for the opening ceremony of the Sochi Olympics, but King delayed her trip because of her mother’s death. She attended the closing ceremony.Collins signed a 10-day contract on Feb. 23 and played 10 scoreless minutes in a victory against the Los Angeles Lakers. He revealed at the end of last season that he is gay, but was a free agent and had remained unsigned until the Nets needed another big man.The 35-year-old center said there have been a few “crazies” on Twitter, but added: “I’ve always done a good job of just blocking those people immediately and never responding. That’s Twitter. “As far as people who have my number, the support has been overwhelming.”Collins spoke briefly with reporters before the Nets practiced at UCLA on Feb. 25. They resume their road trip with a game at Portland on Feb. 26.At one point he was practically drowned out by the clatter of a dozen or so basketballs bouncing on the hardwood at the Student Activities Center as his teammates began warming up.It was a reminder of why Collins is with the Nets. “I’m just trying to prioritize things. Basketball right now is a priority,” he said. “Again, it’s about the plays, our calls, trying to get comfortable with just what it is the Brooklyn Nets do on both ends of the court.”Collins said he was glad things happened quickly. He was signed to a contract in the morning, attended a breakfast team meeting and then played that evening. “That way there was no buildup,” he said. “It is what it is and you can start to move on and start to focus on the basketball stuff.”For Collins, that’s doing a lot of grunt work. “Being big, using my size and strength, setting screens and going out there and hitting somebody on both ends of the court,” he said.Guard Deron Williams chuckled about Collins getting five fouls. “Jason is solid. He sets screens, plays hard, uses his fouls wisely. We were joking that he’s a professional fouler. He used five fouls wisely,” Williams said. “He did a good job.”Williams also talked about how bad Collins’ golf game is. “It’s almost like Charles Barkley. It’s pretty bad,” he said.With a need for another big man, the Nets turned to Collins, who helped them reach two NBA Finals in the early 2000s. General Manager Billy King said that it was a basketball decision.Williams agreed. “He’s another basketball player helping our team win. That’s all it is. It doesn’t matter. We’ve got so many guys who’ve known him for years, have played with him. I’ve known him. So nothing changes.”Still, Williams said the first night was a big deal.“He’s showed a lot of courage in coming out and being open with it,” Williams said. “We’re happy for him and glad to have him on board. It’s big to be a part of it. It’s definitely historic for him to come out here and play, the first openly gay athlete to play in a major sport. It’s definitely a big deal. We know there’s going to be a lot of media, a lot of questions about him every day, but rightfully so. But hopefully him doing this, and Michael Sam, eventually it will be the norm. It won’t be a big deal.”Sam is the SEC co-defensive player of the year from Missouri who recently revealed he is gay. His on-field workouts at the NFL combine in Indianapolis were on Feb. 24.Collins said it’s up to the media to decide when the story is less about him being an openly gay player and more about him just being a basketball player.“There’s only so many ways you can talk about the off-court stuff until really the focus is on basketball and how the team is doing,” he said.Asked about the pressure of being under a 10-day contract, Collins said: “I don’t think I really have to, at this point in my career, prove myself. Most of the guys know what I can do. The key thing is just being in shape, which I am.”Is he anxious? “There’s a lot in life you can worry about. That’s not one of them,” he said.(Bernie Wilson, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Convicted felon and deported Army veteran sworn in as US citizen

The ceremony was a long-held dream of Barajas, who was born in Mexico, grew up in Compton and spent six years in the Army before eventually being deported in 2004 and again in 2010.Barajas had difficulty adjusting to civilian life after being honorably discharged from the Army in 2001. He had substance abuse problems, and in 2002 pleaded no contest to shooting at an occupied vehicle. He was deported for the first time after serving his sentence.Speaking to an audience outside the USCIS office after becoming a citizen, Barajas lamented the mistakes he had made and the effects they had on his family, but thanked the community for supporting his return to the U.S.The citizenship only validates what I always thought in my heart: I’m an all-American patriot and I proudly served my adopted country as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne. I believe I am no less of an American because of the mistakes I’ve made,” he said.A pardon last year by Gov. Jerry Brown paved the way for Barajas’ naturalization. Brown also pardoned two other veterans who, like Barjas, had been deported.“He showed that California has upheld its values and is supportive of immigrants like me,” Barajas said.Since 2013, Barajas has run the Deported Veterans Support House in Tijuana, which provides deported veterans food, clothing, shelter and resources as they seek self-sufficiency.Barajas plans to run the center for another year before returning to his family. In the U.S. he would like to find a job, put his daughter through college and possibly attend school.Barajas noted, however, there’s still work to be done for the immigrant veteran community.“My biggest dream is to see all my brothers and sisters go home to the country they were willing to die for,” he said. “We must continue to fight to bring home our deported veterans…. Border or not, we will always be U.S. veterans; we are all Americans and I’m standing here today as an American citizen.”This morning on Good Morning San Diego, KUSI’s Ed Lenderman spoke with Nathan Fletcher about the life of Hector Barajas.

Alaska attorney general joins others arguing that redistricting can be too partisan

first_imgAttorney General Jahna Lindemuth appears before the Senate Judiciary Committee during her confirmation hearing in April. She joined a legal brief in a U.S. Supreme Court case, arguing that Wisconsin’s redistricting process was too partisan. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)Alaska Attorney General Jahna Lindemuth joined a legal brief in a U.S. Supreme Court case Tuesday, arguing that redistricting shouldn’t favor one political party.Listen nowOregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum filed the amicus brief. Lindemuth and 16 other attorneys general joined it. The brief argues that a Wisconsin redistricting plan was too partisan.Department of Law spokeswoman Cori Mills said Lindemuth supported drawing a line on when partisan redistricting – known as gerrymandering – becomes unconstitutional.“The brief concludes that Wisconsin’s plan should be deemed unconstitutional,” Mills said.Alaska Gov. Bill Walker supported the move.“Drawing district lines only to maximize one political party’s power, without any other reasonable justification, is a disservice to the voters and to democracy,” Walker said in a statement.But at least one member of the board in charge of Alaska’s most recent redistricting disagreed.Juneau resident PeggyAnn McConnochie said Alaska shouldn’t weigh in on what Wisconsin did.“Every state has its own way of doing it,” McConnochie said. “Unless you are in the middle of it and you understand all sides, then I don’t think it’s reasonable for us to get involved.”The brief argues that advances in technology have made it easier to have “extreme partisan” redistricting that insulate political parties from attempts to unseat them.The case, Gill v. Whitford, is scheduled to be argued Oct. 3.last_img read more

Sony confirms you can download and play your PS4 games at a

first_imgThis week the Develop conference has been taking place in Brighton, and Sony have used the event to announce another bit of positive news about the functionality of the PS4.As was the case with the PS3, you can either purchase games on disc or via download. With the PS4 those two options remain, but Sony has confirmed any download games you have linked to your PSN account can be played on any PS4 console. What that means is, you can visit a friend, login to PSN on their console, and download and play your games.The other good news is, you won’t be waiting long for those games to download to your friend’s PS4 before you can start playing. Remember Sony’s “Play as you Download” feature? It will work in this situation, too. So only the first part of the game needs to be downloaded before you can start playing. The rest of the game continues to be pulled down in the background while you play.As games are linked to your PSN login, it means you could (if you trust them completely) share your login with a friend so they can check out the games you own. Sony will surely impose some form of limits, though, such as only allowing one console to be logged into an account at a time.This feature confirmation came via Neil Brown, Sony’s R&D senior team leader. He also explained that the Play as you Download feature isn’t just limited to downloaded content. It works with disc-based games, too. When you start playing a game on Blu-ray, data from the disc will be copied to your PS4’s hard drive in the background. That means load times should be cut significantly once the data transfer is complete.last_img read more

Philips Introduces Illumeo Adaptive Intelligence Technology for Radiology

first_img 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 November 27, 2016 — Philips announced the introduction of Illumeo, a new imaging and informatics technology with adaptive intelligence that enhances how radiologists work with medical images. The intelligent software is the first, according to the company, to combine contextual awareness capabilities with advanced data analytics to augment the work of the radiologist. Its built-in intelligence records the radiologists’ preferences and adapts the user interface to assist the clinician by offering tool sets and measurements driven by the understanding of the clinical context.Illumeo aims to enable faster diagnoses, to drive well-informed care decisions and improved patient care. The new technology integrates with existing systems such as Philips IntelliSpace PACS (picture archiving and communication system) and will eventually extend its workspace efficiency beyond radiology to other domains.The new Illumeo technology offers a radically new approach to how radiologists will see, seek and share clinical information, enabling them to provide an even more critical contribution to patient care. Through its Data Analytics Engine, the software provides the radiologist with the most relevant case-related information from various sources in one single view. This holistic ‘Patient Briefing’ includes the patient problem list (a work in progress and not currently available for sale in the U.S.), laboratory results, prior radiology reports, imaging orders or scanned documents (such as handwritten referral letters from general practitioners and referring specialists) obtained from health information systems like the electronic medical record (EMR) or radiology information systems (RIS). It integrates and organizes this data and helps radiologists to bridge the stages of diagnosis from treatment to follow-up, while being able to rely on a current, comprehensive patient picture.”As the number of patients and complexity of care continues to increase, the amount of data and information we deal with on a daily basis is overwhelming,” said Eliot Siegel, M.D., professor of diagnostic radiology for the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore. “In order to help solve this problem, having solutions that streamline information and provide context to what is most relevant to a specific case is critical. This will provide a more efficient workflow, which is key to enabling quicker, more confident diagnoses.”Illumeo is also anatomy-aware. Built-in intelligence understands the anatomical context and thus what the radiologist is looking at on the screen. It then automatically suggests the right tool sets (such as tools for easy measurement and analysis of vessels) to help the radiologist focus on the diagnosis. Its intelligent clinical Semantic Labelling Engine reads and analyzes image tags and image series descriptions from a variety of vendors and provides automated semantic labeling with meaningful descriptions. It will make it easier and faster to retrieve specific, relevant medical images, and manage their display and quantification. Illumeo is adapting to and remembering radiologists’ preferred hanging protocols: the complex process of organizing and displaying medical images for optimal examination, based on many variables such, modality, body part, available comparison images.With Illumeo, the radiologist can also generate dynamic reports that can include 3-D images or image quantifications based on minimal user input. This information integrates with PACS and can be accessed via EMR systems. It can also be shared as a multidisciplinary patient information dashboard across the hospital enterprises to facilitate collaboration. The report is designed to be shared with colleagues or the referring physicians and supports the transition of radiology into a ‘value-based’ care delivery model.The new technology will be showcased at the 2016 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting, taking place Nov. 27 – Dec. 2, in Chicago.For more information: www.philips.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Medical 3-D Printing | August 08, 2019 RSNA and ACR to Collaborate on Landmark Medical 3D Printing Registry The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) will launch a new medical… read more Technology | Analytics Software | November 27, 2016 Philips Introduces Illumeo Adaptive Intelligence Technology for Radiology New technology uses data and contextual awareness to optimize the radiologist’s user experience, hanging protocols and workflow News | Artificial Intelligence | August 08, 2019 Half of Hospital Decision Makers Plan to Invest in AI by 2021 August 8, 2019 — A recent study conducted by Olive AI explores how hospital leaders are responding to the imperative read more 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 News | Electronic Medical Records (EMR) | August 01, 2019 DrChrono Teams With DeepScribe to Automate Medical Note Taking in EHR DrChrono Inc. and DeepScribe announced a partnership so medical practices using DrChrono EHR can use artificial… read more News | Artificial Intelligence | August 05, 2019 Montefiore Nyack Hospital Uses Aidoc AI to Spot Urgent Conditions Faster Montefiore Nyack Hospital, an acute care hospital in Rockland County, N.Y., announced it is utilizing artificial… 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.

Global Shocks Unlikely to Directly Crimp Housing

With numerous economists attributing lows for consumer confidence to a bevy of international concerns, _MReport_ spoke with analysts to spot any troubling signs for housing as the global economy wobbles.[IMAGE]The verdict: Apart from stock market fluctuations, market watchers should keep an eye the fallout from euro zone crises for mortgage rates and credit supply. Still, policymakers and institutions stateside are more likely to dent confidence than events overseas.On Wednesday the “”World Economic Forum””:http://www.weforum.org/ released a “”global competitiveness report””:http://www3.weforum.org/docs/WEF_GCR_Report_2011-12.pdf that pushed back on assertions about U.S. economic vitality and creditworthiness by ranking the world’s largest economy fifth on a list of other countries. A “”_New York Times_ story””:http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/07/business/global/in-euro-zone-banking-fear-feeds-on-itself.html?_r=2 also raised new worries that U.S. financial institutions with exposure to euro zone markets could tighten credit standards in order to stave off effects from the spreading debt crisis.Alex Pollock, a resident fellow with the “”American Enterprise Institute””:http://www.aei.org/ and former head of the “”Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago””:http://www.aei.org/, dismisses the news as largely inconsequential to homebuyers and other players in the U.S. economy.He highlights the $14.7-trillion GDP growth still enjoyed by the U.S., citing fundamental economic strength that still makes it a “”very big, very entrepreneurial, very rich stable country”” with plenty to offer homebuyers, overseas investors, and consumers at large.””It’s a good illustration really that the credit downgrade hasn’t made really made a difference,”” he says, referencing “”Standard & Poor’s””:http://www.standardandpoors.com/SPComIPResolver recent decision to negatively rate creditworthiness for U.S. debt.[COLUMN_BREAK]The lower rank arrives amid a continuing surge in overseas homebuyer and investor activity. In March the “”National Association for Realtors””:http://www.realtor.org/ found that cash buyers and investors accounted for a startling 35 percent of existing-home sales, numbers that have stayed high with few revisions.Asked whether an image problem for the U.S. could deter overseas cash buyers and investors, Paul Dales, a senior U.S. economist with “”Capital Economics””:http://www.capitaleconomics.com/, says that foreigners will likely continue to value all-time highs for housing affordability despite debt downgrades.As for debt crises for economies in euro zone markets? Dales toes the line with assertions he made for a past “”_MReport_ story””:https://themreport.com/articles/how-european-debt-debacle-could-stifle-housing-2011-08-12 that wobbly Europe could both help the housing economy and weaken the recovery.He says that a rush by scared investors to U.S. Treasury debt could depress mortgage rates, keeping home purchases attractive, even as spreading debt crises make lenders more cautious, a trend that could potentially dampen lending volume.All signs point to the need for more credit, not less, in the U.S. economy. The “”Office of the Comptroller for the Currency””:http://www.occ.treas.gov/publications/publications-by-type/survey-credit-underwriting-practices-report/pub-survey-cred-under-2011.pdf found in February that banks had squeezed their commercial and retail underwriting standards over 2010 by some 32 and 30 percent, tightening credit for home equity, residential real estate, and commercial construction nationwide.Underscoring the safety and competitiveness of U.S. debt, which stayed close to 2 percent for 10-year yields Tuesday, Pollock nods to the potential for competition from the European Union if the supranational entity moves forward with widely rumored plans for a fiscal union that could potentially create purchasable debt on par with Treasuries. Such a deal could raise borrowing costs for U.S. homebuyers if investors flock to a sounder-looking European alternative.””There you would have a big and deep economy and that might allow for a serious competitor for international reserves,”” Pollock says, adding that German bonds and gold create the only current competition for U.S. debt.His real concern? The former banking chief worries that “”regulatory over-reactions”” could make the U.S. less attractive abroad, lending weight to the World Economic Forum report.””The sort of political and regulatory over-reaction represented by the Dodd-Frank Act makes [the U.S.] a less desirable place to do business,”” he says.last_img read more

Accused plead not guilty in sign fraud case

first_imgThree individuals and two companies pleaded not guilty in Paphos on Friday to charges relating to an alleged €300,000 scam involving sign companies and the town’s municipality.Andreas Nicolaou, a former municipal employee, Christos Ioannou, manager of Etna sign company, and Soteris Antoniades, manager of Alma sign company, face charges of conspiracy to commit felony, forgery and circulation of forged documents, obtaining money under false pretences, theft, abuse of power, and abuse of trust.The alleged crimes took place between 2006 and 2012.The suspects reportedly used three different means to extract cash; by issuing false invoices for road signs that were never made, charging for larger signs than those that were actually manufactured, and charging the municipality for invoices the public works department had already paid for.On Friday, the court rejected a defence request for further details regarding the charge sheet.Prosecutor Andreas Hadjikyrou said the charge sheet initially had 1,200 charges and likened it to an encyclopaedia.The state managed to cut the number of charges to 40 and to word them in such a way as to avoid misinterpretation, he said.The case continues on September 14.You May LikeRelay by Foundry TechnologiesThese little wifi-connected displays are popping up on desks and at doors everywhere.Relay by Foundry TechnologiesUndo247 SportsMarvel NFL Helmets For Every Team247 SportsUndoBuzzSuper30 Classy Short Haircuts For Females Over 60 To Look 20 Years YoungerBuzzSuperUndo Film review: Child’s Play ***UndoUK plays Brexit hardball with ‘stubborn’ EUUndoLimassol police investigating attempted murderUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
