Developer Drops Plans to Build Turbines that Would Have Limited Sheppard AFB

first_imgA developer considering building wind farms outside Sheppard AFB in north central Texas has opted to abandon the projects following an effort by the base and the Sheppard Military Affairs Committee (SMAC) to alert Innergex about the threat turbines pose to low-level military training routes used by pilots, reported the Times Record News. “These projects would have had serious negative impacts on our ability to safely manage both civilian and military air traffic in those areas and would also have reduced the overall number of effective flying training days we have each year,” base spokesman George Woodward said last week.Officials from the base and SMAC are hoping to reach out to developers sooner to avoid potential conflicts arising later. “We believe that, by working together and communicating early in the process, we can reach mutually compatible solutions not only in and around military bases, but also around FAA-designated military training routes and operating areas in Texas and Oklahoma,” Woodward said.SMAC President Glenn Barham said the organization would be talking with state lawmakers about a new Oklahoma law that is designed to prevent encroachment from wind farms by ensuring developers and base officials talk early in the planning process and submit projects to DOD’s Military Aviation and Installation Assurance Siting Clearinghouse.Photo courtesy of Times Record News Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

Suspected drug peddler kidnapped and murdered by rivals in Kerala 2 detained

first_img(Representational image)Johannes Simon/Getty ImagesA 21-year-old suspected drug peddler was kidnapped and murdered by members of a rival gang in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, on Tuesday. The police detained two suspects on Wednesday.Anandhu Gireesh was reportedly kidnapped by two men during a temple festival in Konchiravilla, reports Deccan Chronicle. His body was found in an empty plot near the Government Polytechnic for Women near Karamana.The police have identified the suspects as Balu (19) and Roshan (21). According to The News Minute, Balu and Roshan are from Neeramankara.Reports suggest that Anandhu’s death was the result of a clash between two gangs. He was said to be the leader of one of the gangs. The gangs clashed during the Konchiravila temple festival on Tuesday which ended with Anandhu being kidnapped and eventually murdered.Some of Anandhu’s friends had received a phone call from his phone informing them about his abduction. The call was then cut and the mobile phone was switched off. On Wednesday morning, Anandhu’s body was found severed veins on his hands.The police reckon that he was left to die bleeding.

At University Of Houston Harveys Shadow Looms As Classes Restart

first_imgMichael Stravato for The Texas TribuneUniversity of Houston student Heather Williams, who is studying marketing, picks up her two kids, including Clover, 5, from a daycare set up by the university after Hurricane Harvey on September 5, 2017.At first glance, it looked like a typical day of classes at the University of Houston’s student rec center. People were playing basketball and lifting weights. Some were even studying. But one handball court in the back of the building betrayed that this wasn’t just a normal day.Several dozen children ages 5 to 12 were playing games like tag and Red Light/Green Light in the noisy gym. They had all been hastily dropped off there by UH students, staff and faculty who, in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, needed somewhere to keep their kids.“We didn’t have any other place to go,” said Ana Pena, an employee at the college of optometry, as she picked up her foster daughter for lunch Tuesday afternoon. “This is a life-saver.”Tuesday was the first day back at class for UH, the biggest public university in a city still reeling from the hurricane that flooded miles of streets and destroyed thousands of homes and businesses. The campus just south of downtown sustained barely any damage, aside from a handful of flooded buildings that are expected to be repaired within days. But like their city, many students, faculty and staff are facing months or years of recovery. Many lost homes or cars. Almost all suffered through a hellish week during which their city practically shut down.But administrators were determined to get the school back up and running quickly. There were no vigils or grand gestures of unity on campus Tuesday. Instead, students and staff seemed to be trying their hardest to return to normal. Many classes were near full. The line for food in the student union snaked around the building. And sororities and student groups were recruiting new members on the sidewalks.Administrators were hoping for that sense of normalcy after having to cancel the first full week of class. (School started at UH on Aug. 21.) If things didn’t pick up soon, the semester risked being wasted.“We have to pull together and start building up our community,” said Renu Khator, the school’s president and chancellor.The childcare situation highlighted how much of a challenge that would be. Houston’s K-12 schools are closed for another week, and many of the daycare facilities around town haven’t reopened. Khator encouraged supervisors to allow parents to bring their children with them to work.Administrators scrambled to turn the recreation center into a makeshift daycare facility. An announcement went out Saturday, and the center’s employees manned a phone bank Sunday and Monday to take reservations. Parents described making repeated calls for over an hour to land one of the limited spots.Once the kids arrived, the staff had to find activities for them. The children spent much of the time watching movies, drawing pictures and running around the gym.But even with that problem solved, people on campus understood many more challenges remained. Eight classrooms and one university-run student apartment complex remain unusable. Professors have to figure out how to deal with that week of missed class. And students have to find their focus after a harrowing few days. “It has been a little bit weird,” said Heather Williams, a marketing major. “Everyone is a little shell shocked.”Williams said her home wasn’t damaged in the storm. But she does hair and makeup for weddings, and has already had three weeks of bookings canceled by the storm. That will be a big financial hit, and will only make the semester more challenging for the mother of two.Professors have been urged to be flexible. Many of the 2,500 students who rode out the storm on campus were able to transition back to school quickly. Others lost their homes. Cathy Horn, a professor and chair of the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, said she has spent the last few days helping students and faculty figure the answers to a variety of questions. How do people get to campus if their car was destroyed? How do they study if their textbooks were damaged?Some faculty members, she said, are trying to figure out how to move more of their courses online. Others are temporarily homeless themselves. University officials estimated that about 10 percent of the faculty couldn’t make it to work on Tuesday, though many found substitutes to handle their classes.But amid the confusion, students and faculty said they had been inspired by the outpouring of support. Horn helped organize a Facebook group called “Faculty Helping Faculty During Hurricane Harvey.” More than 60 professors have offered spare rooms or other living space to colleagues who had been displaced. Dozens, she said, took those professors up on the offer. And students from the UH honors college helped clean out or repair about 30 professors’ homes in the last five days.“We are an amazingly generous community,” Horn said. “I have never felt so loved by friends and strangers alike.” Sharelast_img read more

Funds in KMC fixed deposit to be spent on providing amenities

first_imgKolkata: Mayor Firhad Hakim reiterated on Monday that funds in the fixed deposit of the civic body will be utilised only for development work and civic amenities and any wastage of such funds will not be tolerated.Replying to a query from Congress councillor Prakash Upadhyay regarding the existing amount in the fixed deposit of the Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) at the monthly meeting, Hakim said: “We have an amount of Rs 17.10 crore till February 2018. The funds in the fixed deposit, whether it is more or less, does not matter. What matters most is offering services and civic amenities to the people. Since the Trinamool Congress took over the board of the KMC in 2010, it has provided civic amenities in the form of potable drinking water, lights, development of slums, an overhaul of the drainage system, scientific plan for solid waste management etc.” Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata BoseAccording to Hakim, when Subrata Mukherjee of the TMC ended his term as the Mayor in 2005, the amount of fixed deposit stood at Rs 377.16 crore. When Bikash Bhattacharya of the Left Front board took over as Mayor, he sold a number of plots of land and the fixed deposit went up to Rs 721.25 crore. Hakim further informed that when Bhattacharya’s term as Mayor ended in 2010, he left Rs 588. 67 crore in the fixed deposit of the KMC. “The revenue earning is a part our job but our main aim is to ensure that the citizens get the best of amenities,” he maintained.

The capacity of the Garden Reach Waterways is being raised by 25 million gallon and we are also constructing small booster pumping stations in these areas to boost water supply,” he added.last_img read more

first_imgKolkata: The city-dwellers may witness hot and humid weather in the next two days before a heavy shower hits the South Bengal districts on Sunday, predicted the Regional Meteorological Centre in Alipore.The weather office, however, says that scattered rainfall may occur in various places of South Bengal in the next two days. But the rain will not be able to bring down the temperature and reduce the humidity level. The weather office says that the temperature will go down slightly in the city and the South Bengal districts following the heavy rain expected on Sunday. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataIt may be mentioned here that Bengal has received less rainfall in June compared to previous years, due to the late onset of monsoon and an irregularity in the rainfall. The situation may not improve in the current month as there may be a rain deficit in the state. The paddy cultivation has also been affected in different districts due to scarcity of rainfall. Various crops were also damaged due to high humidity levels. The rain deficit in the last month has affected the farmers and they may face a similar fate in July as there is also a prediction of rain deficit in the current month as well.

A Secret Knights Templar Tunnel that Remained Hidden for 700 Years

first_imgIn the Middle Ages, crusaders from the Latin West left an indelible mark on the cities of the Near East, constructing castles and fortresses that would withstand successive waves of conquest. Many of these castles still stand today, and in some cases, remain in use. Krak des Chevaliers, perhaps the most iconic crusader castle, was even occupied and used as a military base in the recent Syrian conflict.Templars Tunnel. Photo by Dennis Jarvis CC BY SA 2.0However, many of these impressive structures have yet to give up all of their secrets. Even in the late 20th century, crusader structures were still being discovered in the Levant, the most notable of which was the 350 meter (985 feet) “Templar tunnel” running underneath the modern city of Acre. These discoveries continue to shed light on this fascinating period of Middle Eastern history.Remains of the Crusader-period Pisan Harbour. Photo by Dainis Matisons CC BY 2.0The Templars were a military religious order, originally founded to ensure the safety of the regular stream of pilgrims that made the arduous and dangerous journey from Western Europe to the Holy Land.According to historian Dan Jones, they were so named because their original headquarters stood next to the Temple of the Lord in Jerusalem, and in the 12th and 13th century they played an important role in defining the political and military successes (and failures) of the crusader states in the Levant.Pictures depicting the Knights Templar (brother-servant, a brother-brother Knight and priest)In 1187, however, the city of Jerusalem was lost after a decisive victory by the Ayyubid leader Salah ad-Din (otherwise known as Saladin) at Hattin. The crusader states had lost their capital, and their shock defeat at the hands of a powerful Muslim army launched what would later be known as the Third Crusade.According to Jones, several large armies set out from England and France to provide aid to the beleaguered crusader kingdoms, with the goal of reconquering Jerusalem.Seal of the TemplarsThis was a vain hope, and the armies of the Third Crusade, led (amongst others) by Richard the Lionheart, would eventually leave without reclaiming Jerusalem. However, they did manage to recover the important port city of Acre.Following a long siege led by the king of Jerusalem, Guy de Lusignan, the Muslim inhabitants of the city surrendered, and Acre became the new capital of the crusader states.Ever fearful of a renewed attack by Saladin and his successors, the Templars set about constructing an impressive fortress at Acre. The settlement was already well protected by high walls and the surrounding sea, but the new Christian occupants proceeded to construct seemingly impenetrable defenses.According to Jones, Acre was a strategically significant Mediterranean port, and controlling it was key to controlling access to the rest of the region. However, this meant that it was constantly under threat, both from enemies outside its walls, and from infighting amongst those within.This may explain why the Templars decided to construct a secret underground tunnel, leading from the fortress to the port. This would ensure a quick, easy escape for any inhabitants in case the city was overthrown and could provide a useful, secret channel for supplies if the city was besieged.Templars Tunnel – Crusader Structure – Akko (Acre). Photo by Adam Jones CC BY SA 2.0However, in 1291, disaster struck. Acre was attacked and taken by the Mamluk ruler of Egypt, Sultan al-Ashraf Khalil, and he ordered that the city be razed to the ground to prevent further Christian reoccupation. This once-pivotal, strategic port fell into insignificance.However, in 1994, over 700 years after the fall of the fortress, a startling discovery was made by a woman living in the modern city of Acre. When she sent a local plumber to investigate the cause of her blocked drains, he stumbled into a medieval tunnel running right underneath her house.The Templar Tunnel. Photo by Tango7174 CC BY-SA 4.0Further excavations revealed that the tunnel had been constructed in the Crusader period, and ran all the way from the fortress to the port. This was an extremely significant discovery, as it’s one of the rare pieces of Crusader architecture in Acre to have survived the invasion of the Mamluks.Read another story from us: Untouched and Unlooted 4,400-yr-old Tomb of Egyptian High Priest DiscoveredToday, it’s even possible to visit the tunnel, which has been fully restored, cleaned and drained. Although the Templar fortress may be long gone, modern tourists can still walk in the footsteps of these crusading knights, 700 years after their deaths.last_img read more

VIDEO Man forcibly dragged off overbooked flight for not giving up his

first_imgAir travel isn’t what it used to be. People today feel more like cattle herded into an overcrowded flying tin barn than valued customers.Just when you thought flying commercial couldn’t get any more demeaning, a video surfaced today of a man – reportedly a doctor – being forcibly dragged off an overbooked United flight from Chicago to L.A.Apparently, the poor guy was selected as the passenger to give up his seat. He refused. That’s when United made the genius decision to drag him off the flight while bloodied and screaming. It’s like an awful scene out of Fahrenheit 151.Of course, the entire thing was captured on video. It will probably be Exhibit A in the massive lawsuit this guy is about to file. Also, way to just sit there and do nothing, everyone on the damn flight. Pathetic.

The research, led by radiation oncologists and surgeons at the Moores UCSD Cancer Center and Fort Myers, Florida-based 21st Century Oncology, also indicates that other complications – such as seromas, pockets of fluid that build with the use of internal radiation devices – are unlikely to occur.That’s good news for those women with early-stage breast cancer who opt to have such devices inserted for their radiation therapy after breast-sparing lumpectomy surgery, said Catheryn Yashar, M.D., associate professor of radiation oncology at the UC San Diego School of Medicine and chief of breast and gynecological radiation services at the Moores UCSD Cancer Center. Their use is increasing, she added, noting that the Moores UCSD Cancer Center was one of the first medical facilities in the country to offer SAVI. SAVI, which consists of flexible catheters through which radiation is given, provides customized radiation therapy and minimizes exposure to healthy tissue after a woman has undergone a lumpectomy to remove a cancerous tumor. Radiation specialists sometimes decide to give women internal radiation – a process called brachytherapy – with the goal of giving concentrated doses of radiation to areas of concern while avoiding healthy tissue.In the study, researchers examined one-year follow-up data on 63 patients treated with the Food and Drug Administration-approved SAVI device. They found an infection rate that is less than half of the published rates associated with balloon brachytherapy methods, and rated overall cosmetic outcomes with SAVI as “excellent.” The results will be presented at the American Society of Breast Surgeon’s annual meeting in San Diego, April 24, 2009.In addition, physicians were able to use the device’s many catheters to customize the radiation dose based on the woman’s needs, greatly minimizing radiation to the heart, lungs, ribs and skin, likely resulting in fewer complications, Yashar said. To date, there have been no recurrences or formation of persistent seromas.“With a full year of follow-up, our research confirms previous findings that this device is safe and effective for radiation delivery, especially compared to other brachytherapy methods,” said Yashar. “Without the ability to customize the dose, other devices can lead to complications, like persistent seroma and skin burns. This applicator was created to overcome these problems, and our research shows it has been successful.”Breast brachytherapy is a form of Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation (APBI). Lasting just five days, APBI offers a shorter course of radiation compared to the six weeks required with traditional whole breast irradiation.“SAVI has the most flexible dose modulation for single-entry APBI applicators and can sculpt the radiation dose to the size and shape of the tumor cavity and the patient’s anatomy, even when only one to two millimeters from normal tissues,” Yashar said.Without the technical limitations of other methods such as balloon brachytherapy, SAVI substantially increases the number of women who qualify for the benefits of APBI.Other authors of the poster being presented at ASBS are Daniel Scanderbeg, Anne Wallace, Sarah Blair and Patrick Barna, UC San Diego; and Constantine Mantz, 21st Century Oncology. The SAVI breast brachytherapy applicator is made by Cianna Medical, Inc.The Moores UCSD Cancer Center is one of the nation’s 41 National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers, combining research, clinical care and community outreach to advance the prevention, treatment and cure of cancer.

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

Home Prices Rise 46 Percent

first_img Share Black Knight HPI New York U.S. home prices 2015-03-30 Samantha Guzman March 30, 2015 482 Views U.S home prices are up 4.6 percent from a year ago and New York state home prices have a new post housing crisis high, according to the Black Knight Financial Home Price Index January 2015 Overview released today. U.S. home prices had a slight 0.1 percent increase from December 2014 to January 2015. However, prices are up over 20 percent from 2012, but still down 10 percent from the 2006 peak. The current national home price value is $241,000.“This month’s data shows that the housing market continues to appreciate, albeit a bit slower than before,” said Raj Dosaj,Black Knight’s Senior Vice President of HPI and Behavioral Models for the company’s Data & Analytics division. Florida and other states with higher than average distressed inventory are lagging behind the country as a whole. Overall, the latest data translates to decent news for the U.S. economy.”The New York metro area had an even higher increase that the overall state at 9.4 percent. San Jose, California home prices have once again hit a new peak. It leads U.S. metros with 1.3 percent month-over month and 11.3 percent year-over-year gains.Florida home prices saw a monthly decline, as did prices in all of the state’s major metro areas. Many of the states metros remain about 30 percent below their pre-crisis peaks. Connecticut home prices also dropped, decreasing 1.1 percent year-over-year, making it the only one of the 20 largest states to see a yearly decline.Of the states where home prices were hit worst by the crisis, California has made the strongest comeback. California is now down around 20 percent from its peak in May 2006, whereas other hard-hit states like Arizona, Nevada, and Florida remain 30 percent or more off their local peaks. After nearly two straight years of home price increases, Las Vegas saw home prices decline for the second consecutive month in January.The Black Knight HPI combines the company’s property and loan-level databases to produce a repeat sales analysis of home prices as of their transaction dates every month for each of the more than 18,500 U.S. ZIP codes. The Black Knight HPI represents the price of non-distressed sales by taking into account price discounts for REO and short sales.center_img Home Prices Rise 4.6 Percent in Daily Dose, Data, Featuredlast_img read more

would be of interest to the special counsel" Davis said in a series of television interviews Trump soon weighed in on Twitter taking his shot at Cohen and praising Manafort saying he has "such respect for a brave man" Manafort Trump wrote had "tremendous pressure on him and unlike Michael Cohen he refused to ‘break’" But there was no doubt that Cohen’s acknowledgement of a coordinated payoff scheme puts Trump’s presidency on the defensive "It’s going to be hard for the president to try to discredit all this It’s circling him" said David Weinstein a former federal prosecutor who is not involved in the case Cohen and Manafort played prominent roles in Trump’s political rise in 2016 Cohen said once he’d take a bullet for Trump and was intimately familiar with Trump’s personal business and political dealing for more than a decade Cohen released a secretly recorded audio of Trump discussing a payout made via a third party to model Karen McDougal who says she had a sexual relationship with Trump in 2006 Cohen initially denied making the payments to the women — McDougal and adult film actress Stormy Daniels — or that Trump had any knowledge of them But he changed his story as prosecutors closed in Davis his attorney told CNN Wednesday of Cohen "There has been an evolution in his loyalty toward Donald Trump" The payments to the women could be regarded as an illegal campaign expenditure if the money was clearly meant to influence the 2016 election Trump on Twitter maintained otherwise saying "Michael Cohen plead (sic) guilty to two counts of campaign finance violations that are not a crime" He also complained that "President Obama had a big campaign finance violation and it was easily settled" Trump was apparently referring to a fine levied on the former president’s 2008 campaign over missing and delayed disclosure of high-dollar donors in the final days of that race In a deal with federal prosecutors Cohen pleaded guilty to eight counts including tax evasion He could get about four to five years in prison at sentencing Dec 12 Manafort was convicted of eight felony counts including charges of filing false tax returns and failing to report foreign bank accounts Prosecutors will decide whether to retry him on 10 other charges Manafort was a well-connected Republican consultant and lobbyist who prosecutors say made $60 million in foreign money working for Russia-backed politicians in Ukraine He was campaign chairman for months during the GOP nomination battle in 2016 Trump said Tuesday the legal developments had nothing to do with Russian election

His supporters chanted Trump’s campaign staples "Drain the swamp" and "Lock her up" The White House is trying to keep the focus on the November election when control of Congress is at stake Trump allies such as former strategist Steve Bannon seek to frame the election as a referendum on the potential impeachment of the president Trump confidants have long argued that the president’s fate in such a scenario would ultimately be more a matter of politics than law Also Tuesday prosecutors and defense attorneys for former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn agreed to postpone his sentencing after he pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with a Russian official in a sign his cooperation was still needed in the Mueller probe Trump confidants are reasserting that it is the White House position that a sitting president cannot be indicted They are citing a 2000 opinion of the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel which provides legal advice and guidance to executive branch agencies Trump’s lawyers have said Mueller plans to adhere to that guidance though Mueller’s office has never independently confirmed that There would presumably be no bar against charging a president after he or she departs the White House For many around Trump Cohen has represented a greater threat than even the Russia investigation drawing from Cohen’s decade of working as the then-celebrity real estate developer’s fixer An FBI raid on Cohen’s New York office and hotel room in April rattled the president who has complained publicly about what he felt was government overreach while privately worrying about what material Cohen may have had after working for the Trump Organization for a decade Those in Trump’s orbit including his lawyer Rudy Giuliani have steadily ratcheted up attacks on Cohen suggesting he was untrustworthy and lying about what he knew about Trump’s business dealings When Cohen’s team produced a recording that the former fixer had made of Trump discussing a payment to silence a woman about an alleged affair Giuliani sought to impugn Cohen’s credibility and question his loyalty Trump stewed for weeks over the media coverage of the Manafort trial Though the proceedings were not connected to Russian election interference Trump has seethed to confidants that he views the Manafort charges as "a warning shot" from Mueller "What matters is that a jury found that the facts presented to them by the special prosecutor warranted a conviction of someone who surrounds the president" Weinstein said perhaps. read more
