Rabat – Huawei, a Chinese company specializing in multinational networking and telecommunications equipment and services, allegedly used a picture by a Moroccan photographer without his consent to promote its Android smartphone, “Huawei Y5 Lite.”On January 2, the company posted a colorful picture showing the silhouette of a man wearing a djellaba, a traditional Moroccan garment, in the sunset at a beach. Next to the picture, it reads: “Get great shots with the 8 MP Camera of the Huawei Y5 Lite.”The Moroccan photographer, Aziz Acharki, is suing the company for using his photograph without asking his permission or using copyright. The page responded to the accusations, saying that it took the picture from “www.unsplash.com,” a website “where several photographers share their shots.”The page administrators said that the company is not “obliged to credit the author or pay him, according to the rules of Unsplash.”Read Also: Land Rover, Jaguar Sales Make Highest Gains in MoroccoHuawei provides products and services to more than 170 countries.

Rabat – Israeli forces killed three Palestinians in the north of the Gaza strip.The death of the three Palestinians came after three rockets were “allegedly fired” at Israel from the blockaded enclave, according to Al Jazeera.The Israeli response to the alleged rocket attack killed three Palestinians civilians and seriously injured a fourth. On Saturday, August 17, Israeli forces posted on twitter that they have opened fire against “suspects” from Gaza.Israel also attacked parts of the northern Gaza Strip via helicopter and tank, Al Jazeera reported.Gaza Health Ministry, according to Al Jazeera, announced that Israeli forces have killed 300 protesters and wounded 17,00 others since the start of “the weekly Great March of Return” demonstrations in 2018.The demonstration started in March 2018. It calls for the right of Palestinians to return to their homes after they were expelled during the 1948 founding of Israel.The recent Israeli assault came a week after Israeli forces invaded Al Aqsa mosque compound and assaulted Palestinian worshippers during Eid Al Adha prayers on Monday, August 11.The forces used tear gas, sound grenades, and rubber bullets to drive worshippers out of the holy site, as dozens of Jewish settlers came to mark what they call the holiday of Tisha B’Av.The assault resulted in at least 14 injuries among Palestinians.
“It is still possible for communities to continue to live together, but intensive mediation is necessary for that to happen,” said Philip Leclerc, who is in charge of the protection cluster in CAR for the UN refugee agency (UNHCR).“What is most important at the moment is that mediation take place in many [areas] across the country,” he said, adding however that if mediation fails, the UN has no other possibility but to evacuate groups to safer places, or secure their safe passage to the north, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of the Congo and Chad where some 288,000 people have taken refuge.Back from a two-month deployment, Mr. Leclerc said that people were trapped and trying to save their lives amid escalating violence in which Muslims, in particular, were being targeted.The conflict in CAR erupted when Séléka rebels launched attacks in December 2012 and has taken on increasingly sectarian overtones as mainly Christian militias known as anti-Balaka (anti-machete) have taken up arms.Thousands of people are believed to have been killed, and 2.2 million, about half the population, need humanitarian aid.“It is extremely important that international forces be increased so that people [can be] saved,” Mr. Leclerc said at a briefing in Geneva. He noted that the State is increasingly re-exercising its power, and security is also provided as a result of the International Support Mission to the Central African Republic (MISCA) and the French mission, known as Sangaris.Noting that the violence in CAR reminded him of that which engulfed Gorazde and Srebrenica in 199r, he said that in an extremely dire situation, “people were relying on United Nations forces, and sometimes on protection jut by the mere presence [of those forces].”“If there are more international forces, there would certainly be fewer human rights violations and fewer reasons for people to flee,” Mr. Leclerc said.Also on the CAR today, the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) confirmed that it had reunited four abducted children with their father. The two girls and two boys were seized and held ransom by the militia, but released following negotiations.“Child abductions represent a new and disturbing deteriorating in the conflict,” UNICEF spokesperson Patrick McMormick told journalists.

Northern Colorado responded with a 9-0 run that included a dunk by Bodie Hume that turned into a 3-point play. The lead stayed in double figures the rest of the way.The Associated Press
THERE ARE NOW over 3,200 homeless children in Ireland, latest figures show.The figures for homeless people staying in emergency accommodation in January have been released this evening, showing another rise in the number of homeless families and children.In total, there were 1,517 families with 3,267 children staying in emergency accommodation in January.This marks a rise of 109 families and 188 children since December. The number of children staying in emergency accommodation reached an all-time high in November at 3,333.There were 5,837 homeless adults in emergency accommodation in January, a rise of 158 on the previous month.Of the homeless adults, a total of 2,424 were placed in private emergency accommodation, which includes commercial hotels and B&Bs. Source: Department of HousingAnnouncing the latest figures, Minister for Housing Eoghan Murphy commented on the rising levels of homeless children.“The extent of the increase in January was not anticipated and, following a meeting with the Dublin Regional Homeless Executive, I have requested that they investigate the matter further and prepare a detailed report for review,” Murphy said. Source: Department of HousingCriticismInner City Helping Homeless (ICHH) has hit out at the rising figures, which have been released just as temperatures are set to plummet as low as -6 degrees over the coming days.The charity said that families in particular need homes, not family hubs or emergency accommodation.“What we are seeing now I believe is a social acceptance of these shocking increases within homelessness,” ICHH CEO Anthony Flynn said.“Government is seeing no end in sight to this crisis and are over-concentrating on short-term solutions to what is a long-term problem,” he said.Meanwhile, Fianna Fáil spokesperson on Housing, Planning and Local Government Barry Cowen TD has said the latest figures are damning.“It’s a moral shame that there are so many children forced to live in emergency accommodation. It has been highlighted time and time again that this situation is having a detrimental impact on children’s personal development,” Cowen said.“The government must get to grips with this crisis by directly building new social housing in every county.”Read: ‘We’re failing children’: One in seven kids lost to homelessness, poverty or neglectMore: Dublin north inner city locals object to charity homeless support centre opening in their area 8,153 Views Image: luxorphoto via Shutterstock 56 Comments Feb 27th 2018, 5:26 PM Tuesday 27 Feb 2018, 5:26 PM Share176 Tweet Email2 ‘It’s a moral shame’: Another 188 children have become homeless since the start of the year There were 1,517 families with 3,267 children staying in emergency accommodation in January.

LONGVIEW — Democrat Denny Heck came out swinging at Rep. Jaime Herrera, his Republican opponent in the 3rd Congressional District contest, during a face-to-face debate here Wednesday evening that drew an enthusiastic audience of 500 to Lower Columbia College.The audience leaned decidedly in Heck’s favor, cheering his digs at Herrera and calling out “answer the question” when she appeared less than responsive to questions posed by a three-member panel .The 75-minute debate at the college’s Wollenberg Auditorium, sponsored by the Kelso-Longview Chamber of Commerce, was the second of two joint events the candidates attended Wednesday. The two earlier took part in a forum in Lacey sponsored by the Thurston County Chamber of Commerce.No face-to-face debate between the candidates will occur in Clark County, the 3rd District’s most populous county, although KGW will host both on its “Straight Talk” program, which will be broadcast Saturday.At the Longview event, Heck wasted no time attacking Herrera. Answering a question about how as a member of Congress he would create jobs in Cowlitz County, he said he would work to get credit flowing to small businesses, strengthen tourism at Mount St. Helens, boost development of the Port of Kalama, and “make sure Wall Street can never again game the system and bring this economy to its knees.”
Dan Cohen AUTHOR The Air Force will make its case to Congress in March for an enormous expansion in its force structure, Secretary Heather Wilson told editors and reporters on Wednesday at Bloomberg headquarters. “The Air Force is too small for what the nation is asking us to do,” she said, reported Bloomberg. “The difference between what is needed and what is available is measured in risk.” Last month Wilson announced a plan to increase the number of operational squadrons from 312 to 386 by 2030, a change prompted by the need to prepare for the prospect of a conflict with a near-peer adversary such as China or Russia. … Defense Secretary Jim Mattis’ goal of transforming the military into a more lethal force that relies on less bureaucracy and is capable of thwarting Russia and China remains a distant target although the initial steps have been taken to realize his vision, according to a Washington Post story that assesses the Pentagon chief’s first 21 months in office. Notably, “his effort to drive efficiency across the Pentagon has stalled, by many accounts,” although there are several exceptions, it states. A plan to save $100 billion over five years by streamlining overhead has since been scaled back and now aims to save only $46 billion, according to a former senior DOD official. … Jack Reed (R.I.), the top Democrat on Senate Armed Services, told reporters on Wednesday his party would insist that any increase in defense spending be matched by a corresponding increase in domestic programs in a new budget agreement, reported CQ. The most recent budget accord covered fiscal 2018 and 2019. If lawmakers fail to strike a new deal loosening the statutory budget caps for FY 2020, defense spending would drop $71 billion in the next fiscal year.Air Force photo by Senior Airman Greg Nash
Huawei was blacklisted in May by being added to the US “entity list” of groups deemed to be acting contrary to national security interests. That came after President Donald Trump signed an executive order essentially banning the company based on national security concerns that it maintained close ties with the Chinese government — allegations the company has consistently denied. This blacklisting stopped US companies from selling equipment to Huawei.However, Trump promised last month to ease those restrictions as he tried to revive trade talks between the US and China. Senior administration officials confirmed that companies will be able to resume business with Huawei if they get licenses and there’s no threat to national security. Huawei bought $11 billion worth of US technology in 2018, the Journal noted.First published at 3:47 a.m. PT.Updated at 4:25 a.m. PT: Adds more detail.

Joel Neimeyer of the Denali Commission, right, speaks with DEC Commisioner Larry Hartig on a 2017 visit to Mertarvik, the site where the village of Newtok hopes to rebuild. Neimeyer’s last day on the job is April 20. (Photo by Christine Trudeau/KYUK)The top job at the federal agency tasked with coordinating the relocation of Alaska villages threatened by climate change will soon be vacant.Listen nowJoel Neimeyer will step down as federal co-chair of the Denali Commission when his term expires Friday. The Trump Administration has not yet named a replacement.The vacancy comes at a crucial moment for the agency. In March, Congress doubled the commission’s budget to $30 million, directing it to work with villages facing coastal erosion, flooding and degrading permafrost.Originally the brainchild of former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens, the Denali Commission was established by Congress in 1998 to fund economic development and infrastructure in rural Alaska. In 2015, then-President Barack Obama added another mission: assisting Alaska communities threatened by climate change, like Newtok, Shishmaref and Kivalina.That has been a major focus for Neimeyer. During his eight years as the head of the agency, the commission has pivoted from funding new infrastructure to maintaining existing projects — and trying to raise awareness of climate impacts.Neimeyer said it’s sometimes been a lonely job.“The Denali Commission has always been sort of the red-headed stepchild,” Neimeyer said in an interview, a week before his term was set to end. “Regional commissions by their nature are unusual…So we are sort of an island out there as an agency. And the biggest challenge will always be to get cabinet-level agencies to pay attention to what we identify are issues of the day.”One of the biggest “issues of the day” during Neimeyer’s tenure has been the question of what to do about Alaska villages facing potential destruction. Neimeyer waged a dogged effort to unlock federal funding for climate-related erosion, work that paid off when Congress added $15 million to the commission’s budget as part of this year’s budget deal. Most of that money will go to relocate Newtok, the Western Alaska village most at risk.But now that the funding has finally arrived, Neimeyer’s term is ending. His exit leaves a big hole at the agency: only the federal co-chair can sign off on spending, so Neimeyer and his staff have worked overtime to approve projects before his last day.Still, Neimeyer said it’s a good time to hand over the reins.“Not everyone gets to cross the finish line, and I understand that,” Neimeyer said.The Trump Administration has twice proposed eliminating the Denali Commission entirely. Neimeyer, who was appointed under Obama, is a Democrat. He said the agency needs a Republican head to make the case for it within a Republican administration.“There may be some things that are bittersweet, but I know that my continuance as the federal co-chair won’t help the agency in the long run,” Neimeyer said. “What actually will help is new blood.”Who that new blood might be remains an open question. The Alaska congressional delegation must nominate potential candidates to be appointed by the Trump Administration. A spokesperson for Sen. Lisa Murkowski said the senator is currently vetting potential candidates, but offered no prediction on when a replacement might be announced.
The new logo of State Bank of India (SBI) is pictured at the podium of the venue of a news conference after the announcement of SBI’s fourth quarter results, in Kolkata, India May 19, 2017. REUTERS/Rupak De Chowdhuri/File PhotoReutersIn one of the largest recruitment drives by the State Bank of India since 2013, the government-owned corporation has said it will hire about 9,500 people for customer support and sales functions.The introduction of digital banking has pushed the SBI to reduce the requirement of administrative staff and increase the need for more customer-facing employees, the Times of India reported.However, the customer support roles require general skill set and are also at a high risk of facing automation. Many companies like Facebook and Microsoft are already replacing customer service agents with robots.”Generic skill sets are the ones which are exposed to automation, so there will be more hiring around data sciences and artificial intelligence,” Rituparna Chakraborty, President of Indian Staffing Federation, told IBtimes India. The bank’s decision to hire thousands of workers comes at a time when the employee headcount at the company has plunged by more than 10,000 due to attrition and providing voluntary retirement scheme post its the merger with associate banks. SBI’s employee strength fell to 2,69,219 by the end of September 2017 from 2,79,803 at the beginning of the financial year which was a decline of 10,584 employees.The bank is, however, redeploying staff as a part restructuring post-merger. According to the bank officials, there is also a high need to hire many workers for the entry-level roles due to high attrition rate in the initial year of recruitment. Employees [Representational Image]Reuters”Many candidates make multiple applications and choose the one that is most convenient to them in terms of location. The bank, therefore, maintains a reserve list of candidates as well,” said a bank official.The decision to recruit in thousands by the SBI could be seen as a good start to the year for employment. Hiring activity is also expected to pick up in 2018. A large number of companies in India will have an increased hiring budget this year compared to last year, found a skill assessment company Mettl.The report, based on feedback from more than 1,860 business heads and human resource (HR) leaders, suggests that nearly 76 percent of organisations are predicted to have an increased recruitment volume this year versus 65 percent in 2017.
In this 7 June, 2018, photo, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wis., takes questions from reporters following a closed-door GOP meeting on immigration without reaching an agreement between conservatives and moderates, on Capitol Hill in Washington. Photo: APUS House of Representatives will vote next week on two Republican-written immigration bills, a top GOP aide said late Tuesday, as leaders sought to move past an election-year civil war they worry will wound the party’s prospects in November.AshLee Strong, spokeswoman for Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., announced the decision after a bargaining session among leaders and top conservative and moderate GOP lawmakers ended without agreement on a single package all sides could support. It was unclear whether either bill would clear the House, but both of the party’s factions would be able to show voters they backed legislation containing their priorities on the divisive issue.For weeks, the party’s two wings have hunted ways to provide a route to citizenship for “Dreamer” immigrants brought illegally to the US as children and also bolster border security. They have failed to find middle ground.The House ended Tuesday’s session as moderates fell short of their stated goal of having 218 signatures – a majority of the chamber – on a petition that would force votes on other immigration bills that GOP leaders oppose. They had said they would do that by Tuesday, which would have triggered those votes later this month.Instead, the centrists accumulated the names of all 193 Democrats but just 23 Republicans – two short of the number required – after party leaders’ efforts against them proved effective.GOP leaders have strongly opposed the rarely used petition tactic, asserting those votes would probably produce a liberal-leaning bill backed by Democrats and just a smattering of Republicans. They’ve actively lobbied other moderates to not sign the petition, and in talks bargainers have sought legislation both sides could back or alternatively a way for each faction to get a vote on legislation they could support.Strong said the decision to consider two bills will avert the petition “and resolve the border security and immigration issues.” She said GOP lawmakers would discuss the plan at a closed-door meeting Wednesday.Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla., a leader of the moderates’ petition drive, gave his group credit for the planned House votes. GOP leaders had resisted holding those votes, wary of the GOP divisions they would highlight, until the petition neared the required signatures.”Our goal has always been to force the House to debate and consider meaningful immigration reform, and today we’re one step closer,” Curbelo said.Strong did not describe the two bills. But Mark Meadows, R-N.C., who leads the hard-right House Freedom Caucus, said one would be a strongly conservative measure that does not give the young immigrants a way to become citizens.The alternative measure is still under discussion, Meadows said. But a Republican familiar with the discussions said it would likely be based on a proposal by moderates that would grant the Dreamers a chance for citizenship but also provide all $25 billion President Donald Trump wants for his wall and impose curbs on legal immigration that conservatives want. That Republican spoke on condition of anonymity to describe private talks.The conservative measure seemed certain to be defeated in the GOP-run House. If the second bill resembles the moderates’ proposal, it too seems likely to lose from opposition by a combination of conservative Republicans and the chamber’s Democrats.”If Republicans plan to use Dreamers as a way to advance @realDonaldTrump’s xenophobic, anti-immigrant agenda, they will get a fight from House Democrats,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a tweet.The moderates’ proposal would have accepted conservatives’ demands including limiting the relatives whom immigrants can bring to the US and ending a lottery that provides visas to people from countries with low immigration rates, Republicans said.Three Republican aides said that as part of their effort to derail the moderates’ petition, party leaders promised votes later this year on a bill dealing with migrant agricultural workers and requirements that employers use a government online system to verify workers’ citizenship. The Republicans spoke on condition of anonymity to describe private talks.Meadows told reporters that the vote on the second immigration bill might not occur until later this month.Aides had said any compromise bill would probably include provisions changing how immigrant children are separated from their families at the border. Trump’s recent clampdown on people entering the US illegally has resulted in hundreds of children being separated from their families and a public relations black eye for the administration.No law requires those children to be taken from their parents. A 2-decade-old court settlement requires those who are separated to be released quickly to relatives or qualified programs. Republicans are seeking language to make it easier to keep the families together longer, said several Republicans.Trump last year terminated the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, though federal court orders have kept the program functioning for now. Hundreds of thousands of young immigrants have benefited from DACA or could qualify for it, and moderates want legislation that would give these so-called Dreamers a way to become legal residents and ultimately citizenship.Conservatives have derided that step as amnesty for lawbreakers and have resisted providing a special pathway to protect them.
Share For the last couple of days, Venezuela has been immersed in a non-stop cycle of violence that started on April 17th, when the massive so-called “Mother of all protests”, organized by the opposition nationwide to demonstrate against the government of President Nicolás Maduro, was confronted fiercely by security forces and armed civilians working for the government.Since then, the unrest has continued day and night in many major cities in the country, including the capital, Caracas, and the looting and other violence following two days of massive protests has left at least 12 people dead.Overall, 20 people have been killed this month in unrest that erupted after the Supreme Court stripped Congress of its last powers, a decision it later reversed.In Houston, where 11,000 Venezuelans reside, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, this community watches developments in their country from afar, with a mix of deep sadness and expectation, but mostly solidarity. Two of them talked to us about the situation in Venezuela, what they think will come next and the way the Houston Venezuelan community copes and helps. One of them, Marisela Sánchez, is a geo mechanical engineer living in Houston. The other, Amanda Sánchez, is Marisela’s mom, currently visiting her daughter and family.Both of them believe that as devastating as the situation in the country is, this is the final push for Venezuelans against the government to finally achieve what they see as real democracy.

One year ago, Mayor Sylvester Turner released the city’s anti-trafficking strategic plan. The Special Advisor to the Mayor on Human Trafficking Minal Patel Davis delivered an update on progress. She says the plan engages several City of Houston departments.“Our health department has required training for all 1,200 employees, and the reason that that’s important is because our health department has restaurant inspectors on staff that go out and inspect all 13,000 food establishments annually, and restaurants are a common site for trafficking.”The city’s efforts include raising awareness and changing public perception. That includes a media campaign. Davis expects it to be harder to fight human trafficking with the recent passage of SB 4. She says trafficking victims may be less inclined to seek help if they fear deportation. The city launched a Municipal Court diversion program, to establish trust with potential victims by supporting their civil and legal needs. “Those cited with four Class C misdemeanor charges are connected with a legal service provider, and the charges are dismissed if they satisfactorily attend the legal services screening.” Share
In 1994, the movie Forrest Gump, which detailed a man’s life and his fairly coincidental brushes with many pivotal people and circumstances of the 1960s, was released. Forrest was a character who touched just about everyone who saw the movie. While he didn’t have the brightest mind, he was a character of surprisingly insightful wisdom and enormous kindness of heart. Throughout the movie, many of the things that Forrest did were, either directly or indirectly, the result of his abiding love for his childhood friend and sweetheart, Jenny. Jenny, who only sees Forrest as a dear friend, is a troubled young woman.At one point in the film, Jenny comes to live with Forrest for a while, and Forrest says it’s the happiest time in his life. He asks Jenny to marry him, and she refuses, causing Forrest to wonder why she doesn’t love him.Tom Hanks as the title character on the film set of Forrest Gump.

Her departure crushes Forrest, and in utter pain and despair, he begins running back and forth across the United States.When people he encounters ask him why he’s doing it, he just says that he felt like running — and he clearly does, since he doesn’t just run across the country once, but at least four times.Over the years, a number of people have gone across the United States on foot, even before Forrest Gump hit the theaters, but Forrest’s remarkable multi-trip run was inspired by one particular person.

To give Bobby hope, the teen promised to run across the entire county, raising money and awareness for the American Cancer Society.Beautiful scenic highway in Monument Valley Tribal Park in Arizona-Utah border, U.S.A. at sunset.He left New Brunswick, New Jersey, heading west, and 60 days later Figueroa arrived in San Francisco, making him both the fastest and youngest runner to ever cross the U.S. on foot. Fourteen years later he did it again. His brother, Jimmy, had been diagnosed with AIDS.Figueroa, who was himself in recovery from leukemia, walked from Bangor, Maine, to San Diego to raise awareness about Jimmy’s disease. He made the walk alone, and with only the equipment he could fit in his backpack, as a way of symbolizing the solitary plight of HIV-AIDS sufferers, gathering money for AIDS programs as he went.In late January of 2005, the now 43-year-old Figueroa decided to make his longest trek yet, in support of protecting children from sexual abuse. This trip was his most personal, as he told the Lompoc Record during an interview, as he, himself, was molested as a boy. He started from an abused children’s shelter in Tucson, Arizona, intending to circle to country and walk 7,500 miles.The circular route he chose was meant to symbolize the chain of abuse he hopes to help put an end to. About six months and 3,000 miles into his trek, Figueroa was forced to stop walking because of a combination of legal issues and a resurgence of his leukemia, which kept him from finishing his walk for five years.Read another story from us: Citizen Kane – Historic Achievements and Political Sabotage of the ‘Greatest Film Ever Made’In 2010 Figueroa picked up his walk from the place that he had to interrupt it, and continued on his way. He told the Record that he would stop walking a mile from where he began, and let his children, volunteers, and supporters finish it for him, to show that one man can only go so far, and then the community must step in. Not only was this intrepid activist the inspiration for Forrest’s run, but I think he also has the same enormous heart.
Related Content June 10, 2013 — The American College of Radiology (ACR) strongly urges Americans ages 50-and-older, particularly those with a family history of colorectal cancer, not to delay or forego recommended screening due to concerns raised by a June 1, New York Times article titled, “The $2.7 Trillion Medical Bill: Colonoscopies Explain why U.S. Leads the Work in Health Expenditures.”The article charges that healthcare costs more in the United States is directed against medical services in general, with colonoscopy singled out as a “compelling case study.” The article claims that they are the most expensive screening test that healthy Americans routinely undergo, with more than 10 million patients purportedly undergoing the procedures every year (a number 10 times greater than a decade ago). Moreover, as is true of many other health care services, screening colonoscopies vary considerably across the country in both the frequency with which they are performed and in pricing. The Times included data from the Healthcare Blue Book showing that the cost of colonoscopy varied, in metropolitan areas across the United States, from a low of $1,908 in Baltimore to a high of $8,577 in New York.Colorectal cancer remains one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers and leading causes of cancer death in the U.S. While the ACR recognizes the need to conserve precious health care resources, the College also recognizes the fact that regular colorectal cancer screening saves lives.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced in 2012 that the number of people 50 and older screened for colorectal cancer increased over the past decade and that colorectal cancer deaths are down over that span. However, the increase in screening and drop in deaths leveled off in recent years. More than 140,000 Americans annually are diagnosed with colorectal cancer. Nearly 50,000 of them die because it is detected too late.“There is absolutely no doubt that thousands of people are alive today, who otherwise would not be, as a direct result of regular colorectal cancer screening. The ACR agrees with the Times article’s assessment that Americans need greater access to more colorectal cancer screening choices — including CT colonography — otherwise known as virtual colonoscopy. ACR is ready to work with Congress, Medicare and other stakeholders to make that happen,” said Judy Yee, M.D., FACR, chair of the American College of Radiology Colon Cancer Committee.Virtual colonoscopy is endorsed by the American Cancer Society as a recommended screening test. Multiple clinical trials, including a New England Journal of Medicine study, prove that virtual colonoscopy is comparably effective to standard colonoscopy in the overwhelming majority of Americans (all but high-risk patients). The virtual exam is only minimally invasive and doesn’t require sedation or an anesthesiologist, which offers benefits to the healthcare system and to patients.“Many major insurers — including CIGNA, UnitedHealthcare and Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield — cover CT colonography. However, Medicare does not cover the exam. Medicare coverage of CT colonography is encouraged by the ACR as it would make the less expensive test more widely available, preserve healthcare resources, attract many more people to be screened and ultimately save lives,” said Yee.Several other medical societies have spoken out against the New York Times article. The American College of Gastroenterology and Anesthesia Business Consultants said they have deep reservations about the cost methodology employed in the article, and its failure to acknowledge the cost-effectiveness of screening colonoscopy and the dramatic reduction in colorectal cancer incidence that has emerged in recent years.One of the many other questionable assertions made in the Times article was that “Until the last decade or so, colonoscopies were mostly performed in doctors’ office suites,” the implication being that the movement to ambulatory surgical or endoscopy centers has been unwarranted. Anesthesia Business Consultants said procedures requiring general anesthesia or deep sedation should only be done in locations offering the necessary personnel and equipment, and most doctors’ offices do not qualify. The choice of location depends on many factors and is made by the gastroenterologist. Anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists can and do willingly provide services in accredited offices. As stated by Fred E. Shapiro, DO, assistant professor of Anesthesia at Harvard Medical School and President and Founder of the Institute for Safety in Office-Based Surgery, “In the debate between office versus ambulatory surgery center, the most important factor is not so much theoretical effect on cost, but accreditation and policies regarding patient safety. For example, either an ASC or an office may be the safer option depending on whether or not they use checklists (teamwork) and other mechanisms to standardize patient selection, flow and on how procedures are performed.”Click here for more information: www.radiologyinfo.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Feature | Radiology Imaging | July 29, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr Imaging Market in U.S. Could Rise In Coming Years The coming years may be good for the medical imaging community in the United States.

The Chairman Sri Lanka Tourism Promotions Bureau Rohantha Athukorala said with 2014 registering 15.1 million guest nights with tourism receipts recording 2.2 billion USD, the informal sector is coming out at a staggering 7.3 million guest nights, which is almost touching 50% mark as per analysis prepared by the country’s top analysis JB Securities.This is expected to grow further given the explosion of the online booking companies and with more travellers wanting to book online he said when addressing the Annual General meeting of the Guides Association of Sri Lanka where he was the Chief Guest at the event.Previously Athukorala had asked the private sector to be patient for another 3-4 months since they had waited six years for current provisions. He had said, “Only once the new ad agency, PR agencies- market wise, Digital Marketing Company are been selected under the Government procurement process adhered, that we can practice professional destination marketing. Just attending trade fairs, inviting journalists and initiating travel agents to come to Sri Lanka might generate the numbers but it does not build imagery and brand equity in the targeted travellers. There must be a healthy balance between the Push and Pull. We are just skewed to Push for the last four months. To be honest, I feel sad for Sri Lanka Tourism where the private sector has invested billions of rupees on infrastructure whilst global brand building has not happened in a balanced manner but that the reality. But I commit to you that I will make the Sri Lanka Tourism Bureau the best destination marketing unit in the world.”Overall tourism numbers have registered a 14.5% growth in the first five months of 2015, with overall tourism receipts crossing 1 billion USD as per the Central Bank whilst BOI confirmed that Leisure approvals as at end May was Rs 4.1 billion rupees.
Share The CoreLogic Home Price Index (HPI) is still climbing, with single-family gains in April up nearly 2 percent over March numbers and 6 percent up from a year ago, according to the company’s latest HPI report.In fact, the HPI shows home price gains hitting new month-to-month highs in 17 states, predominantly in the Midwest and West. Only Connecticut showed a drop in its HPI , down 0.5 percent in April.Factoring in distressed sales, this latest HPI makes the 51st consecutive month-over-month increases in home values nationwide, though the national growth rate is no longer posting double-digits.“Low mortgage rates and lean for-sale inventory have resulted in solid home-price growth in most markets,” said Frank Nothaft, CoreLogic’s chief economist. “An expected gradual rise in interest rates and more homes offered for sale are expected to moderate appreciation in the coming year.”Five states, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington, posted the largest increases in April and year-over-year. Oregon and Washington, in fact, each had more than 10 percent growth in both categories. And though Nevada’s HPI was up about 8 percent in both categories, it was one of five states‒‒also including Florida, Rhode Island, Arizona, and Maryland‒‒to remain furthest from its peak numbers. Nevada is still 33.5 percent lower than its pre-recession peak.Also, while 17 states were in peak shape in April, the national HPI is still about 8 percent shy of peak values reported in 2006. At the going rate of increase, however, CoreLogic expects national housing prices to hit new peaks by September 2017.That going rate is expected to remain strong, and CoreLogic predicts that May’s numbers will be nearly a full percent up from April’s and more than 5 percent up from last year’s figures.The top 10 metro areas‒‒Boston, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, San Diego, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C.‒‒ all reported increases in HPI in April, with Chicago and Las Vegas up most, by about 1.5 percent each. Year-over-year, Denver posted a 10 percent increase. CoreLogic expects Las Vegas and San Diego to post the most dramatic increases next year, with each market expected to be up more than 10 percent.Overall, about 25 percent of the top 100 markets studied are believed to be at sustainable levels. On the flipside, 101 markets overall are considered overvalued, and 16 of those markets are in Texas.
