Delegate rich California, along with Texas, will be joining 13 other states on  Super Tuesday, which could reduce the Democratic field to a handful of candidates.The Democratic field is so large the party may need to split the TV debates into two tiers, over two days, and Political Consultant John Dadian says if you’re tier two you might think about closing your campaign office.Shifting the Primary from June to March 3rd was intended to force candidates to talk about the issues important to California voters.California voters will have mail ballots in their hands on February 3rd, the same day Iowa’s caucus and a month later, after the New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries, comes Super Tueday involving 16 states including California and Texas.If you want the nomination you cannot dismiss California. The three front runners in California  are Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden.

BPA extends comment period on transmission line

September 16, 2019

first_imgPeople hoping to weigh in on a proposed transmission line through Southwest Washington will have an extra 24 days to do so, the Bonneville Power Administration announced Wednesday.The BPA extended the formal comment period after several requests for more time, according to the agency. That included a letter sent from U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler on behalf of citizen advocate Cheryl Brantley, who leads the group A Better Way for BPA. Others had asked to keep the project on schedule and make a decision quickly, according to BPA.“This strikes a balance that should meet the needs of those requesting an extension, and those eager for us to reach our decision,” BPA project manager Mark Korsness said in a statement.The BPA will now accept feedback until noon March 25. That brings the total comment period to 132 days, according to BPA.The agency has proposed building a 500-kilovolt transmission line between Castle Rock and Troutdale, Ore. The BPA last November picked its preferred route for the $459 million project, but three other possibilities remain on the table.Two open house meetings are scheduled for next week, including a Feb. 6 gathering at 5 p.m. in Clark College’s Gaiser Hall, 1933 Fort Vancouver Way in Vancouver.last_img read more

UN calls for Libya ceasefire as death toll climbs to 1000

first_imgTRIPOLI: The UN Security Council called Friday for a ceasefire in Libya as the death toll from a three-month offensive on Tripoli reached 1,000 including scores killed in an air strike that hit a detention center for migrants. The council condemned the attack late Tuesday on the Tajoura detention camp east of Tripoli and “stressed the need for all parties to urgently de-escalate the situation and to commit to a ceasefire,” said a joint statement. Also Read – EAM Jaishankar calls on European Parliament President David Sassoli Advertise With Us Libyan commander Khalifa Haftar, whose forces hold eastern Libya and much of the country’s south, launched an offensive in early April to wrestle the capital from forces loyal to the UN-recognized Government of National Accord (GNA). Air strikes and ground fighting have since left nearly 1,000 people dead and some 5,000 wounded, the UN’s World Health Organization said. Also Read – This is why Denmark, Sweden and Germany are considering a meat tax Advertise With Us The fighting has forced more than 100,000 people to flee their homes and threaten to plunge Libya into deeper conflict. Among the dead are 53 migrants killed Tuesday night in an air raid on a detention center in the Tripoli suburb of Tajoura, held by the GNA, which accused Haftar’s forces of carrying out the strike. A Geneva-based spokesman for the International Organization for Migration said six children were among the migrants killed. Advertise With Us Joel Millman said that 350 migrants, including 20 women and four children, were still detained at the center, one of five air hangars hit in the raid. World powers have been divided over how to respond to Haftar’s offensive, with the United States and Russia refusing to condemn the Libyan strongman. The British-drafted council statement condemned the attack on the migrant camp, called for a return to political talks and for full respect of the arms embargo on Libya. It followed a closed-door council meeting on Wednesday during which US diplomats said they needed more time to consult with Washington on the proposed text. The United Nations has called for an independent investigation to determine who was responsible for the strike on the center, which housed some 600 migrants, mainly from African countries. UN shared coordinates UN agencies and humanitarian groups have repeatedly voiced concern over the plight of thousands of migrants and refugees held in detention centers near combat zones in the capital. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has expressed outrage over the attack and said the United Nations had shared the coordinates of the detention center with the warring sides to protect the civilians. The carnage in Tajoura was “a tragedy that should have never happened”, said Charlie Yaxley, spokesman for the UN’s refugee agency. Libya has become a major conduit for migrants seeking to reach Europe and remains prey to numerous militias vying for control of the country’s oil wealth. Rights groups say migrants face horrifying abuses in Libya, and their plight has worsened since Haftar launched the offensive against Tripoli. According to the UN, some 5,700 refugees and migrants are being held in detention centers in Libya, 3,300 of which are vulnerable to fighting in and around Tripoli. Plane downed An initial lightning assault in early April saw Haftar’s self-styled Libyan National Army steam towards the capital. But they have since been bogged down on its southern outskirts, where frontlines have been frozen for months. The GNA forces launched a surprise counter-attack late last month, seizing the strategic town of Gharyan, the main supply base for Haftar’s offensive. After the setback, Haftar’s forces threatened to intensify strikes against their rivals. Both sides have launched daily air raids throughout the fighting and each lost several planes. Troops loyal to Haftar said late Thursday they had downed a GNA jet near the town of Tarhuna, used by the LNA as a rear base some 80 kilometres (50 miles) southeast of Tripoli. A GNA spokesman said they had lost contact with the L39 Albatros, which had been on a combat mission south of the capital, without providing further details. The rival camps have remained convinced that with the help of their backers, they can win the battle. The GNA receives support from Turkey and Qatar, and Haftar is backed by the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, and according to experts, to some degree by the United States.last_img read more

Sensex falls as Karnataka election outcome disappoints

September 5, 2019

first_imgIndian pedestrians walk on Dalal Street – Trader’s Street – next to the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) in Mumbai on March 7, 2014. Representational image.INDRANIL MUKHERJEE/AFP/Getty ImagesIndian shares fell on Wednesday (16 May) as doubts over the composition of the next government in the southern state of Karnataka dampened investor risk appetite.Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won 104 seats, falling marginally short of the 113 seats needed to form a government, while the opposition Congress clinched 78.The Congress said it was ready to let regional party Janata Dal (Secular), which stood third with 37 seats, to form a government to stop the Hindu nationalist BJP from taking power.However, analysts say the outcome of Karnataka’s election results only strengthens the BJP’s re-election prospects in 2019, something the markets will be optimistic about.”Markets are at very high levels and hence very volatile, so every event will be met with overreaction,” said Sudhakar Pattabiraman, head of research operations at William O’Neil’s MarketSmith.”Because of a few state elections coming up this year, expect markets to remain volatile but in the long term, things look extremely positive. There are strong indications that BJP will win the 2019 general elections.”India also announced its trade deficit data on Tuesday, which slightly widened to $13.72 billion in April from $13.25 billion a year ago.The broader NSE Nifty was down 0.46 percent at 10,751.8 as of 0611 GMT, while the benchmark BSE Sensex was 0.38 percent lower at 35,408.98.Asian shares were down as well after North Korea called off talks with South Korea, throwing a U.S.-North Korean summit into doubt.The index of state-run banks fell 3.3 percent, dragged down by Punjab National Bank (PNB) and Syndicate Bank Ltd, which fell 13.7 percent and 10.7 percent respectively, after the duo posted a March-quarter loss on Tuesday.PNB reported a record quarterly loss of 134.17 billion rupees ($1.98 billion) with analysts worried about the bank’s growth prospects, while Syndicate Bank posted a loss of 21.95 billion rupees compared with a profit of 1.04 billion rupees last year.Reliance Communications Ltd dropped to its lowest in six months after India’s bankruptcy court allowed a insolvency plea filed by Sweden’s Ericsson.last_img read more

Ireland tipped to repeal abortion ban

first_imgA woman carries a placard as Ireland holds a referendum on liberalising abortion laws, in Dublin, Ireland on 25 May. Photo: ReutersCounting begins on Saturday in Ireland’s historic referendum on abortion as exit polls showed an overwhelming vote in favour of liberalising some of the strictest laws in Europe.Friday’s vote to repeal a ban in this traditionally Catholic country was predicted to win by a two-thirds majority.An Irish Times poll of 4,000 said the “Yes” camp was leading by 68 per cent to 32 per cent. Another poll by national broadcaster RTE suggested an even bigger victory, with 69 per cent to 30 per cent backing reforms.The Irish Times survey suggested that women voted by 70 per cent in favour of the proposal and 30 per cent against. Support among men was 65 per cent pro-choice and 35 per cent anti-abortion.“Thank you to everyone who voted today. Democracy in action. It’s looking like we will make history tomorrow,” prime minister Leo Varadkar, who backs the reform, said in a tweet.People over 65, however, voted mostly against overhauling the current legislation, which only allows terminations in cases where the mother’s life is in danger.Among the youngest voters, 18-24-year-olds, the poll found that 87 per cent of respondents voted to allow abortion.The exit poll showed “an overwhelming desire for change that nobody has foreseen,” wrote Irish Times deputy political editor Fiach Kelly.“The victory for the ‘Yes’ campaign looks set to be neither narrow nor based on a few segments of Irish society. Rather, it will be carried high on the shoulders of a majority across the entire country,” he said.Kelly pointed out that in Connacht/Ulster, traditionally seen as the most conservative region in the country, the exit poll indicated that 59 per cent voted for change.He called it “the final casting off of old mores”.Nearly 3.5 million voters were asked whether they wanted to overturn the ban after an emotional and divisive campaign.Results for different parts of the country are expected from 1100 GMT, with a final result to be announced later in the day at the main counting centre in Dublin Castle.People arriving at polling stations from the early morning spoke about the momentousness of a complex decision that in many cases pitted moral against religious beliefs.Ireland has traditionally been one of the most religious countries in Europe. However, the Roman Catholic Church’s influence has waned in recent years following a series of child sex abuse scandals.The referendum came three months before a visit by Pope Francis for the World Meeting of Families and three years after Ireland voted to legalise same-sex marriage despite the Church’s opposition.“The fact that it’s illegal for somebody in Ireland to seek medical treatment, having to travel outside the country and to feel that guilt, shame and isolation, it’s absolutely shocking,” said Belinda Nugent, 43, a community activist voting in north Dublin.“I took it really personally, this vote.”But across the city, Finbar O’Regan, 50, said he wanted a “good, strong No vote”.The unemployed Dublin voter said his mother had been sent to England to have him born and adopted.“I’m a staunch No. It’s the life of an unborn baby. I’m one of the lucky ones,” he said.170,000 womenAt present Ireland’s eighth amendment-which could be repealed in the vote-recognises the “right to life of the unborn” with an “equal right to life of the mother”.Canvassers were out on the city’s streets holding up signs and wearing t-shirts with campaign slogans. One in southwest Dublin offered hugs to people who voted in favour of repealing the ban.The eighth amendment to the Irish constitution was installed following a 1983 referendum which approved outlawing abortion.Anyone terminating a pregnancy in Ireland could face 14 years in jail.The ban has led to thousands of women travelling each year to neighbouring Britain, where terminations are legal, or increasingly turning to abortion pills sold online.Since 1983, around 170,000 Irish women have gone abroad for terminations.The law was tweaked in 2013 to allow terminations if the mother’s life is at risk.The Irish government has proposed that if the eighth amendment is repealed, abortion will be allowed up to 12 weeks and between 12 and 24 weeks in exceptional circumstances.last_img read more

Challenges and Opportunities Face Towson Professor

first_imgBy John K. Schmid, AFRO Baltimore StaffWith the last day of the semester only one-month away, Dr. Aminata “Amina” Sillah, an assistant professor at Towson University, has settled into her tenure-track position at the school.Sillah is the first Black woman on the track in the Towson College of Liberal Arts Political Science Department.The offer and announcement of Sillah’s new position was made in 2017 when she was still under contract as a visiting professor.“Day to day, it means a lot,” Sillah told the AFRO. “It means stability, it’s more stable. Now you know you’re on track , you don’t have to be looking and saying ‘where am I going next?’ This appointment is over, will it be renewed? You don’t have to worry about those other thoughts.”But, the new position comes with more work and more responsibilities“Now, you have a set number of students you’re gonna be advising,” Sillah said. “You’re on a lot more committees, a lot more boards.”The tenure track also brings the demand to publish.“I’ve been publishing and I will continue to publish, you do have to publish, you have to keep publishing within your field, or even outside your field, but you have to publish at all times,” Sillah said. “I encourage it.”But, she’s not doing it alone. In addition to co-research with other academics, Sillah tells the AFRO she has the support of the department.“The department is really awesome, I have a lot of mentors they’re always telling me ‘keep publishing, even though you have some publications under your belt, keep publishing. Don’t stop.’” Sillah said. “And that’s exactly what I’ll keep doing.”Her most recent publication was a textbook chapter on civic engagement at the international level. Sillah’s contribution was a comparative study of The Gambia, her native country.Now her eye has turned to Baltimore.“I am actually working on a paper on gentrification in Baltimore,” Sillah said. “Can we actually gentrify, without displacing? So, I’m looking at that, but I’m looking at it from the perspective of community organizations. What are they doing to make sure people are not displaced?”Baltimore’s particular struggles as well as its common struggles with other large cities provides both challenges and opportunities. It’s a ripe field to observe how top-level policy affects the daily lives of Baltimoreans.“It’s fantastic, you have a lot of reach,” Sillah said. “It’s good and it’s overwhelming. You look at it and you look at the challenges and you know these challenges can be overcome, but it’s like, where do I start, who do I talk to? All of the things. There’s a lot to do in Baltimore, and there’s a lot of challenges.”Along with advising and committee seats on campus, Dr. Sillah is looking to extend her work into the broader community, strengthening a Towson-Baltimore relationship she said.“A lot more responsibilities, and challenges, but I’m looking forward to it,” Sillah said.This reporter was a student of Dr. Sillah in 2017.last_img read more

Data from savvy cabbies to help improve online mapping

The content is provided for information purposes only. Waze turning road warriors into map builders Citation: Data from savvy cabbies to help improve online mapping (2010, November 8) retrieved 18 August 2019 from Microsoft Research Asia engineers are analyzing three months’ worth of data from GPS units installed in more than 33,000 taxi cabs in Beijing in the hope of identifying the short cuts and side streets frequented by drivers who know the best routes to take at any given time. To do the analysis, they designed a software program dubbed “T-Drive” to merge with satellite map information. Team leader Yu Zheng says the system outperforms the estimates provided by online mappers such as Google, Mapquest, and Bing, which use data on speed limits and the length of the road. These mapping systems can rarely help drivers select short cuts or routes around traffic light delays or jams.Over 60 percent of T-Drive’s routes were faster than those provided by Google or Bing, and at least half of these results were 20 percent faster or better, giving an overall saving of 16 percent off the duration of the trip. This is equivalent to shaving an average of five minutes off per 30 minutes of traveling. A web-based user interface of T-Drive. Image credit: Microsoft Research. Explore further So far the system applies only to Beijing and does not yet include real-time data such as information on accidents or other hazards, but the system should eventually be real-time and applicable to any city with a large number of taxis on the road. Other systems are also being worked on, including a collaborative approach by Nokia and the University of California, which uses GPS information from motorists’ mobile phones. Another system, from Silicon Valley company, Waze, allows drivers to share their real-time routes with online social networks to help other drivers adjust their routes to the current traffic conditions. Waze co-founder, Ehud Shabtai, said the Beijing approach makes sense, saying “you can probably assume routes taxi drivers take are more optimal,” and the best short cuts may not be known to less savvy drivers. Faster routes are also not always the shortest on the map, he said.The T-Drive findings are being presented this week in San Jose, California at the International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems.center_img — T-Drive: … fault.aspx?id=138985– IEEE research paper (PDF): … driver-demo-IEEE.pdf Application scenario of T-Drive.

Security Experts Find That Latest DSLR Cameras Are Vulnerable To Ransomware Attacks

first_img Ads by Amazon Close   ( Pixabay ) Cybersecurity experts detail a threat that could expose digital cameras to attacks such as ransomware and malware.Check Point Research, the research arm of Israeli cybersecurity company Check Point Software Technologies, has discovered vulnerabilities in a DSLR camera that could be exploited by hackers.According to Check Point researcher Eyal Itkin, a hacker can easily plant malware on a digital camera through the Picture Transfer Protocol, the standardized protocol for transferring images from a digital camera to a PC.

Attackers that already hacked a user’s PC can exploit the USB connection to infect the camera.“Any ‘smart’ device, including the DSLR camera, is susceptible to attacks,” Etkin said.He added that WI-FI and USB connection makes cameras more vulnerable to threats as attackers can inject ransomware into both the camera and PC it is connected to.In a video, Itkin demonstrated how he exploited a Canon EOS 80D via Wi-Fi and encrypted the images on the SD card so that the user wouldn’t be able to access them. Six bugs were found on the camera’s firmware.“The photos could end up being held hostage until the user pays the ransom for them to be released,” the report wrote.How To Avoid Attacks Via PTPLast Aug. 6, Canon released a security advisory for its digital cameras related to PTP communication functions and firmware update functions. The company and Check Point have been working on a security patch for the firmware vulnerability since May.Canon said while there have been no confirmed cases of the vulnerabilities being exploited to cause harm, it advised customers on how to use digital cameras securely. The company suggests that users ensure the security settings of the devices that are connected to the digital camera such as the PC and router being used.It is not advised to connect the camera to a PC or mobile device to an unsecured network or in free Wi-Fi connections. Users are also discouraged from connecting the camera to a PC or mobile device that is potentially infected with a virus. When the camera is not used, it is advised to disable the network functions.

Weve been waiting 3 YEARS for giant 12ft crater to be fixed

August 28, 2019

first_imgThe council has apologised for the hold-up Councillor Daniel Jellyman, cabinet member for regeneration, transport and heritage, today apologised for the hold-up. He said: “We’ve carried out more than 14,000 road and pavement repairs across the city since April, and last month we were listed among the best councils in the country by the RAC for how fast we fix dangerous potholes. “We’ve prioritised repairs to roads and junctions that experience large amounts of traffic on a daily basis, with work to reduce the overall backlog taking place alongside this.

Scott Doorbar, business unit director at Dee Set Logistics, fears there could be a fatality if the crater – measuring around 12ft by 4ft – on the entrance to the car park isn’t filled in. He first alerted Stoke-on-Trent City Council to the pothole off Victoria Road, Fenton, in May 2016 –  before Donald Trump was President, the UK was yet to vote on remaining in Europe and Marko Arnautovic was on fire for Stoke City. Since then, Scott has used the authority’s online portal to repeatedly ask for the surface to be repaired – but to no avail. Scott, from Biddulph, said: “We first reported it nearly three years ago and they came out to view it in February 2017. They said back then that the road needed replacing.  “Since then I’ve even used the council’s portal to log the issue. I’m constantly calling the council. They’ve said it needs to be replaced, but we’ve not been given any dates. “The pothole is a major concern. We have HGVs coming in and out of the car park. There’s a school just up the road so at 3.30pm the area gets very busy with kids running up and down and the buses coming up and down here. Councillor Richard Broughan says he is ‘no Donald Trump’ “I would get it fixed ourselves but because it’s a highways area, if we do something and it ended up being wrong we could be liable. There’s a lot of traffic coming on and off here, so it needs a proper job. “I’ve been given no reason why it has been over two years and still nothing has been done. If they had come out and fixed it when I first reported it, it would have been a much easier job because its kept growing.

Annabel Goodwin, M.D., the study’s co-author, and colleagues from the Westmead Hospital in Australia and the University of Sydney looked at recent studies that evaluated the addition of radiation therapy after lumpectomy in the treatment of DCIS. They also found that there appear to be no long-term side effects from the radiation, such as damage to the heart or lungs.”We wanted to assess whether breast conserving surgery followed by radiotherapy is better than breast conserving surgery alone,” Goodwin said. “We also wanted to investigate if there was any short- or long-term toxicity from the use of radiotherapy to determine the balance between benefit and harm.”The review appears in the latest issue of The Cochrane Library, a publication of The Cochrane Collaboration, an international organization that evaluates medical research. Systematic reviews draw evidence-based conclusions about medical practice after considering both the content and quality of existing medical trials on a topic.The researchers identified four high-quality studies that compared breast-conserving surgery with or without radiation therapy in patients with DCIS. The review included data from 3,925 women.DCIS is different from invasive breast cancer in that abnormal, precancerous cells form within the milk duct of the breast but do not spread to other parts of the breast. If treated, it is usually curable. However, if left untreated, it substantially increases a woman’s chance of developing invasive breast cancer.Women usually cannot feel a lump in the breast with DCIS usually cannot be felt as a lump in the breast, but a mammogram can often detect it. Breast-conserving surgery where only the affected part of the breast is removed followed by radiation, is successful for most.The reviewers found that the addition of radiation therapy after breast conserving surgery decreases the risk of recurrence of either DCIS or invasive breast cancer in the treated breast by 51 percent.”This means that for every nine women having breast-conserving surgery [for DCIS], if they all had radiotherapy, one woman would be spared from having a local recurrence of her breast cancer because of the radiotherapy,” Goodwin said. She added that the results of two included studies suggested that women over 50 had a greater benefit from the addition of radiotherapy than younger women did.The researchers found no evidence of increased long-term toxicity from the radiation treatment. “Newer techniques of radiation therapy reduce the dose of radiation to the surrounding normal tissues such as the lungs and heart,” Goodwin said. “This is likely to reduce the potential long term side effects, but longer term follow up of patients in these studies is needed to confirm this.”Surgical oncologist and breast cancer expert Monica Morrow, M.D., from the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, said that the review confirms what most physicians currently recommend for their patients with DCIS who opt for breast-conserving treatment. “The best way to minimize the chance of recurrence is with radiation,” she said.Survival rates the percentage of women who are alive after a certain period after diagnosis are excellent for women with DCIS, no matter whether they choose mastectomy or breast-conserving therapy. In patients who have breast-conserving therapy with or without radiation therapy, survival rates range from 90 percent to 99 percent at 10 years.Doctors overwhelmingly favor breast-conserving therapy for DCIS, Morrow said. However, many women in the U.S. choose more aggressive treatment with mastectomy.”Studies show that the bigger the patient’s role in decision-making, the greater the likelihood the patient will end up with mastectomy,” she said. “This is because most patients don’t distinguish between DCIS and invasive breast cancer, because a lot of the stuff they find on the Internet is written about invasive cancer.”While it is true that the risk of having a recurrence of breast cancer after a mastectomy is lower than after breast conserving therapy in DCIS, Morrow said there is not much difference in survival rates. “What I tend to emphasize to my patients with DCIS is that no matter which treatment they choose, their risk over the next 15 years of dying of something else is greater than their risk of dying of breast cancer. In the end the difference of survival, if there is any, is on the order of a percent or two.”Goodwin A, et al. Post-operative radiotherapy for ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast.

Carson Confirmed as HUD Secretary

first_img March 2, 2017 569 Views Carson Confirmed as HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson was confirmed by the U.S. Senate as the 17th Secretary of HUD on Thursday.Carson, a retired neurosurgeon who was raised in the inner city of Detroit, became a household name in 2015 when he embarked on a campaign to win the Republican nomination for the U.S. Presidency. The final vote was 58-41. On January 24, Carson’s nomination easily passed in the Senate Banking Committee as he gained the support of some of the key Democrats on that Committee—namely, Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts). Democrats had previously been hesitant to offer their support of Carson, largely due to his criticisms of the Obama Administration’s fair housing policies.  In his confirmation hearing on January 24, Carson spoke of taking a more “holistic” approach to housing as he seeks to rebuild the country’s urban areas.Carson succeeds Julián Castro, who stepped down from the role of HUD Secretary on January 20 after two and a half years. Craig Clemmensen, Director, Departmental Enforcement Center at HUD, has been serving as Acting HUD Secretary since the departure of Castro.Carson, 65, becomes the oldest person to be confirmed by the Senate for the role of HUD Secretary. The previous oldest was George W. Romney, who was 61 at the time of his confirmation as the third HUD Secretary in January 1969. Carson, 65, becomes the oldest person to be confirmed by the Senate for the role of HUD Secretary. The previous oldest was George W. Romney, who was 61 at the time of his confirmation as the third HUD Secretary in January 1969. Members of the industry reacted to the historic confirmation, including Ed Delgado, President and CEO of the Five Star Institute.“The Senate’s decision to confirm Dr. Ben Carson as Secretary of HUD displays their faith in the qualities, skills, and experience, which Carson has acquired throughout his impressive career,” stated Ed Delgado, President and CEO of The Five Star Institute and former Wells Fargo and Freddie Mac executive. “We look forward to the advancements that he will bring to the development of housing in under-served areas.”Brian Montgomery, Collingwood Group Vice Chairman and former FHA Commissioner, expressed his approval of Dr. Carson’s confirmation on Westwood One’s First Light radio show. “There is little doubt President-elect Trump greatly admires and respects Dr. Ben Carson and felt strongly about him joining his Cabinet. Having spent almost eight years in the Executive Office of the President, I speak from experience in saying a Cabinet Secretary who has the ear of the President is a positive for that agency and individual,” he said. “In this instance, I think Dr. Carson will be able to “elevate” the issue of Housing within the Trump Administration.  The fact Dr. Carson is a household name I believe will provide him a larger platform to articulate his vision for how best to help tackle any number of issues within the housing arena: shortage of affordable rental housing, the impact of new regulations which have constricted the mortgage market, and the growing senior population and how best to address their housing need.” Collingwood Group partner Meg Burns supported Montgomery’s sentiments, and added that Carson has “all of the right characteristics” to assume the position as HUD Secretary. “I anticipate that Ben Carson will be an excellent HUD Secretary. He has all of the right characteristics—he’s extremely intelligent, compassionate, well-attuned to the needs of the constituency he’ll be serving, and he appears to have good standing with President Trump, based on a strong relationship of mutual respect. Equally important, he has signaled that he plans to call on the expertise of HUD’s career officials for insight and guidance, and to listen to the perspectives of key external stakeholders. The very best leaders at HUD devote a great deal of time and attention to listening.  Based on my 20+ years of experience in government, I have found that those who bring an open mind to the task and who really hear the various opposing views regarding how to address critical social policy issues are the most capable of making a real difference.” Editor’s Note: The Five Star Institute is the parent company of MReport.

n his Democracy Da

November 24, 2018

In his Democracy Day speech,You know the type We may joke about Snooki’s bad habits, In fact CTE has been found in 96% of former NFL players examined posthumously One year ago avid football fan Raymond Colello watched Wes Welker a wide receiver for the Denver Broncos go down with the second game-ending concussion of his career “I began lamenting the fact that concussions may ultimately destroy football itself” said Colello a neuroscientist at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond at a session here on Saturday at the Society for Neuroscience’s annual conference “And at that point like all people watching football on Sunday I went out to my refrigerator for another beer” Staring at the magnets decorating the refrigerator door he had an idea: What if you put such objects inside helmets “You need some kind of force field around these guys” he recalls thinking “Maybe a repulsive force would possibly work” Roughly 60% of concussions in football are caused by head-to-head collisions The material now packed inside traditional helmets reduces concussions by deflecting some of the energy after a collision occurs According to Colello magnets could extend the impact zone beyond the hard shell of players’ helmets slowing the collision down before it occurs thus reducing the overall g-force that a player experiences—just like brakes on a car If a driver slams on the brakes just before it smashes into a wall the impact will still occur but at a slower speed decreasing the g-forces that the driver experiences Colello wants to add palm-sized magnet inserts made from the rare earth element neodymium into the front and sides of helmets The removable inserts follow the curvature of the helmet so players can’t accidentally hit the field with the wrong pole facing outwards According to Colello they could increase the price per helmet by as little as $100 Neodymium magnets are lightweight but they still have a repulsive force-to-weight ratio of 300-to-1; a 1-pound (045-kilogram) magnet could repel at least 300 pounds (136 kilograms) of force Colello’s magnet inserts would weigh in at half to three-quarters of a pound each He tested the magnets with a standard drop test—the same test helmet manufacturers use to evaluate helmet strength He attached the magnets to 10-pound (45-kilogram) weights dropped one weight from various heights and measured the g-force at the site of impact with the second stationary weight Colello found that the magnets could reduce 140-g hits down to 88 g’s—a full 8 g’s lower than standard helmets—and 40 g’s down to a mere 3 The reduction of collisions with low g-forces is just as important he says given that repeated subconcussive hits can add up over time and lower the threshold for a concussion until a relatively mild blow is enough to cause a disproportionate amount of damage The standard drop test is a good approximation of linear forces or direct hits but out on the field most hits are not head-on Indirect hits produce rotational forces that send the brain twisting inside the skull which can cause even more damage “We really have to look at both linear forces or direct hits as well as rotational forces” Colello said after the presentation To do that he plans to send two Humanetics Hybrid II headforms (read: crash test dummies) equipped with magnetized helmets and accelerometers careening down a zip line toward each other By monitoring what happens when the crash-test dummies meet Colello can be sure that the magnets aren’t just replacing linear forces with rotational ones “We don’t want to trade concussions with spinal cord injuries” he says The magnets would complement rather than replace current force reduction technologies in helmets according to Colello who plans to begin the zip line tests by the end of the year and if the data prevail proceed to human testing in just 6 months “The best helmets now are about as good as they are going to get” says Stefan Duma a biomedical engineer at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg “In order to make any big advancements we’re going to need outside-the-box thinking [Colello’s] technology in theory extends the impact outside the helmet It gives you a longer duration [of impact]” says Duma who created the five-star rating system for commercially available helmets Still there are several challenges to address before the helmets reach the playing field Duma cautions The magnets won’t do any good if a player’s head collides with a knee a shoulder or the ground And to help in head-to-head collisions the technology has to be universally adopted “It has to be implemented by everybody You can’t have just one team have it” Colello says “I mean you certainly can but it won’t have any effect at all”LONDON US-led airstrikes have failed to slow the number of ISIS attacks and its defiant militants are now racking up a higher body count than ever before according to data provided exclusively to NBC News Analysis of IHS Jane’s Terrorism and Insurgency Center’s (JTIC) database shows the current face and pace of the group’s battle for Syria and Iraq Data showed that ISIS massively stepped up attacks after conquering the Iraqi city of Mosul on June 10 and has stepped them up further since airstrikes were launched in August. 21, With his cooperation, for example, I starred in my first short film (by Konstantin Brahznik) and we shot it during my first winter break at UVA. there were nine cases of herdsmen invading communities in Benue state alone and more than 190 people were killed. and then I became
