Proud of demolishing Babri Masjid says Pragya gets another EC notice

first_imgBhopal: The Election Commission has issued another show-cause notice to BJP’s Bhopal Lok Sabha candidate and Malegaon blast accused Pragya Singh Thakur for her remark that she was proud of her participation in demolition of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya.Thakur made the controversial remark while speaking to a television channel. After getting the EC show-cause notice, Thakur said she stood by her remark and that the notice would be replied to in accordance with the law. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’In the notice issued by the Bhopal District Election Officer and Collector Sudam Khade Saturday night, a clarification has been sought over Thakur’s remark. An EC official Sunday said Thakur has to reply to the notice in one day. In her television interaction, Thakur had said, “Ram Mandir hum banayenge aur bhavya banayenge, hum todne gaye the dhancha, maine chadhkar toda tha dhancha, iss par mujhe bhayankar garv hai. Mujhe Ishwar ne shakti di thi humne desh ka kalank mitaya hai (A grand Ram temple will be built. I had gone to demolish the structure and had climbed atop it to break the structure. I am tremendously proud of it. God gave me strength to wipe off a blot on this country).” Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KThe EC notice stated that it was a violation of chapter 4 of the model code of conduct, which pertains to maintenance of harmony between castes, communities, religious, linguistic groups. Reacting to the notice, Thakur told reporters on Sunday, “…I am not backtracking. The structure was demolished and a grand temple would be constructed. Nobody can stop me from constructing a grand temple.” In reply to another question, she said, “What disputed structure? We will construct grand Ram temple, will reconstruct it.” Earlier, the EC had on Saturday issued a show-cause notice to Thakur over her remark about Hemant Karkare, the Maharashtra ATS chief who was killed in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack. Addressing BJP workers here on Thursday night, Thakur had claimed that Karkare died during the attack as she had “cursed” him for torturing her when he probed the blast case as chief of the Anti-Terrorism Squad.last_img read more

Moroccan Police Seize 12 Tons of Cannabis in Guerguerat

Rabat – Moroccan police, in coordination with customs officers in Guerguerat at the Mauritanian border, seized 11 tons and 940 kilograms of cannabis on a truck bound for “an African country” on Wednesday.The operation was made on the basis of information from the General Directorate for Territorial Surveillance (DGST), Maghreb Arab press (MAP) reported.A statement from Morocco’s General Directorate of National Security (DGSN) said that search operations at the borders helped to identify the drug, which was concealed inside kitchen furniture on the trailer of a Morocco-registered truck. Police also arrested the truck driver and the officer in charge of the customs clearance at the border post with Mauritania.“The illegal substance was transferred to the customs administration as it falls under its jurisdiction, while the suspects were remanded in police custody to complete the probe conducted by the judicial police in Dakhla police district, under the supervision of the competent public prosecutor,” added the statement.Moroccan police have seized counterfeits and illegal products in the region before.Moroccan customs seized 8,300 unused mobile phones of different brands at the Guerguerat border with Mauritania in 2017.The mobile phones were hidden on a truck registered in Mauritania. The buffer zone of Guerguerat witnessed many instances of illegal smuggling in recent years, under heightened tensions between Morocco and the Polisario Front due to Morocco’s increased security intervention in the area.Moroccan authorities had intensified security measures to combat illegal activities. read more

In phone call with Ukraine President Ban addresses countrys ongoing crisis

The Secretary-General visited the Russian capital on 9 May for the 70th anniversary celebration of ‘Victory Day’ which marks the conclusion of the Second World War in Europe for Russian forces. During his time in Moscow, Mr. Ban also conducted discussions with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the continuing fighting in Ukraine’s eastern regions. “They discussed the importance of implementing fully the February 2015 Minsk package and also how the UN could support the implementation of that agreement,” the UN spokesperson’s office explained in a readout of the telephone conversation between Mr. Ban and Mr. Poroshenko. “In this connection, the Secretary-General informed President Poroshenko that he will be proceeding with consultations with members of the Security Council and others on the possible establishment of a United Nations peace support office in Ukraine.”In late February 2014, the situation in Ukraine transcended what was initially seen as an internal Ukrainian political crisis into violent clashes in parts of the country, later reaching full-scale conflict in the east. Despite a September 2014 cease-fire agreed in Minsk, the situation in Ukraine has since continuously deteriorated, with serious consequences for the country’s unity, territorial integrity and stability. In February 2015, the parties in Ukraine and the Trilateral Contact Group signed a “Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements.” read more

How much of your phone is yours

first_imgMost of us use smartphones for more than we realize. They are the center of our social lives, our direct communication tool for friends and family, and increasingly the tool for entertainment on-the-go. For many people, it’s the first thing that you see when you wake up and the last thing you see when you go to bed. A significant amount of information about you passes through those little plastic, glass, and silicon boxes. A constant concern for the security-conscious among us is, “How secure is the information we share with our smartphones?”Security researcher Trevor Eckhart has had something of a recent history making people aware of mobile phone vulnerabilities. Eckhart’s recent discovery of the HTC vulnerability that allowed for a potentially malicious app to hop on your mobile data connection and grab network information, possibly even ruin your 4G connection, gave the company cause to stop and fix some of their bugs. Now, Trevor points his talents at a more significant threat to personal information.What is CarrierIQ?There was a need in the mobile phone space to make emergency information and basic usage statistics available through a means that allowed multiple organizations to access the information. This includes E911 v2 style information, data that would make it easier for law enforcement to track a phone if a dangerous criminal was on the loose. The spirit of cooperative access and a desire to better the user experience gave birth to CarrierIQ. This company provides a service that, by means of software that carriers and OEMs can use, allows information to be gathered from the phone and presented in a web portal for easy access by organizations who need the information. All in all, a mostly harmless attempt to make certain aspects of the mobile phone experience better.CarrierIQ offers a test application and APIs to anyone who pays for them to put this functionality inside their handset before pushing a phone to market. From that point, the organization which has paid for this software can now implement the software as it sees fit. The companies now have the ability to write the API’s into the OS they are working with, where the data is collected and sent to the portal for easy access. The information is transmitted to the portal via HTTPS, so the information is fairly secure while traveling from your phone to the portal.CarrierIQ was named one of Fierce Wireless Fierce 15 in 2008 for their work in helping operators and handset makers “see what is going on between their end user and the device between the device and the network.” CarrierIQ explains their business on their About page as a company that has “revolutionized the way mobile operators and device vendors gather and manage information from end users.”Who is currently using CarrierIQ?When CarrierIQ was dubbed one of the Fierce 15, they were working with seven of the top ten major OEM’s, as well as Verizon Wireless, AT&T, and Sprint. Currently, Trevor has found CarrierIQ in a number of Sprint phones, including HTC and Samsung Android devices. CarrierIQ is confirmed to be found on the iPhone or on feature phones, but Trevor has found RIM’s Blackberry handsets and several Nokia devices with CarrierIQ on board as well. CarrierIQ can be seen on your Android handset by installing an app from the Market called AnyCut. From here you will notice IQRD and IQAgent, which are both parts of the CarrierIQ system on the device.While no carrier has it documented anywhere publicly that they work with CarrierIQ, Verizon Wireless has documentation on their recently added “Important notice about how Verizon Wireless uses information” that describes their intent to use address of websites you’ve been to on their mobile network, the location of your device, and “app and device feature usage”. Verizon states that they intend to use this information to deliver more relevant ads to you, as well as sell the information to other companies who want to make business and marketing reports. Verizon notes that the information they share doesn’t identify you personally. Verizon also provides you with the ability to opt-out of this experience.As far as I can tell, Verizon Wireless is the only company who has information like this posted, and they are certainly the only company using CarrierIQ that seems to offer the ability to opt-out of the data collection and use. Trevor has created an app called the Android Security Test, that will help you determine whether or not you have been opted in to this service.How is CarrierIQ being used on your phone?So far, Eckhart has been able to locate and handful of points that the CarrierIQ software on these phone records information. These are intents that, when activated, the information is logged and sent to the company who is interested in this information, be they OEM or carrier. The available information tells us that CarrierIQ is capable of recording:Key in HTCDialer Pressed or Hardware Keys: Intent – com.htc.android.iqagent.action.ui01App Opened : Intent – com.htc.android.iqagent.action.ui15Sms Received : Intent – com.htc.android.iqagent.action.smsnotifyScreen Off/On : Intent – com.htc.android.iqagent.action.ui02Call Received : Intent – com.htc.android.iqagent.action.ui15Media Statistics : Intent – com.htc.android.iqagent.action.mp03Location Statistics : Intent – com.htc.android.iqagent.action.lc30These are the intents that we are currently aware of. In fact, CarrierIQ owns a patent that gives them the ability to query just about anything. The patent specifically notes “any user entering data into a browser” as one of the possible functions. If you have a phone with a physical keyboard, the Hardware Keys intent seems to suggest that everything you type could in fact be logged and sent away for analysis.Right now, it is difficult to see just how many phones have a variant of CarrierIQ on them, or how they are being used. Test applications have been found for Blackberry, specifically the 9530, and the Nokia n97-1 and Series 60 devices as well, though those phones are a little more difficult to go browsing around to see how the apps are being used. Nowhere on any of these devices are you, the user, shown or given control over what information is being collected, nor do you have the ability to opt-out anywhere.What is shown in the “portal”?Once the information is connected on your phone, it is shipped away via HTTPS to the CarrierIQ web portal. From here, information can be accessed piece by piece, allowing whoever is using the service to observe the data that was recorded. Eckhart sent us an image of a custom Google Maps overlay with information that maintains the call log of any given device (see above). Here you can see the duration of a call alongside its location and radio measurements to help a carrier see what might have happened if a call dropped.In another part of the CarrierIQ portal found in a heavily notated PDF used for training that Eckhart uncovered, you can see where individual types of information can be requested. “SMS_PullRequest” is an example shown in the PDF as well as “ArchiveFull”. Your information is sorted by Equipment ID and Subscriber ID in most places in the portal.The obvious question that gets asked next is “Who sees this information?” Employees of the companies that pay for Carrier IQ, sure, but how much further does that go? Cooperation with law enforcement? When the information is packaged up and sold to the highest bidder, how much of this information do they see? There is no accountability for this data anywhere. It is recorded, transmitted, and it exists with CarrierIQ. The information shown in these images are for Sprint’s portal, so each of the carriers have their own web portal with their own logins, but we as consumers have no idea who has access to this information.Can CarrierIQ be removed?CarrierIQ provides all of their customers with a test application and the API’s to make adjustments as they see fit. The test application seems to be essentially a bug report system. If your phone crashes or if you drop a call, for example. You use the “Device Health” application to file a report. Interestingly enough, not once have we seen this user controllable interface anywhere in Android. What has been found however, is CarrierIQ API’s embedded at the core of the Android Operating System. This is not an application that you can simply remove, but a series of elements that are tied into the Android Kernel for that device. For example, a system dump of an HTC device would reveal files like these:/system/app/HTCIQAgent.apk – IQ agent app./system/app/IQRD.apk – IQ agent app./system/bin/htcipcd – HTC IPC server./system/bin/iqfd – CIQ frontend daemon./system/bin/iqd – CIQ backend daemon./system/lib/libciq_client.so – ciq client lib/system/lib/libciq_htc.so – ciq lib/system/lib/libhtciqagent.so – ciq agent lib/system/etc/iqprofile.pro – has a url for https://collector.iota.spcsdns.net:10003/collector/cMany Android ROM developers, such as the Cyanogenmod team, will not have these issues, as their builds come from modifying the completely open source version of Android directly. Some Android developers have noticed, and they are not happy. Many other ROM developers on services like XDA-Developers are now releasing ROMs that are labeled “NoCIQ” to identify that the CarrierIQ software has been removed from the kernel entirely. At the moment, that seems to be the only way to opt out of the CarrierIQ service.Why is the ability to opt-out so important?There is some information that is necessary to have quick access to, and I understand that. The E911 system that we use in the US is dependent on basic location information to route an emergency call to the correct region so those services can arrive in a timely manner. I can even understand the desire from a carrier’s perspective to want to know when calls are dropped, SMS need to be sent or received more than once due to failure, and other relevant information that could make it easier to better their services. Collecting information for the betterment of their service is not a bad thing. The problem comes when a user is not properly informed, or if they aren’t customers at all.It’s not an uncommon thing for an app developer to have a device that they use just for development. It’s not attached to a service, it’s usually purchased second or third hand, and it will never be used to make phone calls or use a carrier based service. Put simply, a device that is not attached to a contract in Airplane mode has no business dialing in to Sprint with usage information. This person isn’t paying Sprint for anything. No contracts have been signed. Even if the phone wasn’t purchased secondhand, but purchased outright, the same would be true. These devices would still be recording information and submitting it over WiFi to whoever was asking for it, because there is no way to opt-out.What do the companies have to say?The information we’ve sifted through with Eckhart reveals a potentially significant volume of data being collected. There is not a lot of information provided by these companies as to what the information is used for, who has access to the information, and why there seems to be no way to opt-out of it in many cases. We reached out to CarrierIQ, HTC, and Sprint to see what the official answer is on these topics.Mira Woods, an employee focused on Marketing Communications at CarrierIQ commented that once their customers receive the metrics they have asked to have recorded, “how our customers consume the data is then a function of their business need and the continuing obligations they have to their customer base”. Essentially, CarrierIQ offers a product, establishes a series of metrics that their customer wants to have recorded, and what they do with that information is the company’s own business.Woods was very clear to make sure it was understood that “while we are looking at many aspects of the device, the type of information we actually gather is based on counting and delivering performance metrics, not capturing user data. For example, we are interested in the success/failure rates of SMS traffic, not the content of these messages.”. The fact that this software is baked into the operating system, incredibly difficult for most consumers to locate, and impossible to shut off or remove, is something that CarrierIQ assumes is covered by the privacy policy of their customer.HTC is the author of the CarrierIQ software on their devices. Most of the CarrierIQ hooks in HTC devices are named things like “HTCIQAgent.apk”, and the applications are digitally signed by HTC. However, when asked to provide some additional information as to the function of these services, HTC was unwilling to provide any feedback. A spokesperson from HTC’s PR firm commented that “At this time we aren’t going to be able to speak to carrierIQ’s. These questions would be more appropriately addressed by the specific mobile operators.” Unfortunately Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T aren’t the companies that wrote the applications that are recording the information.In the case of HTC devices, HTC is taking the CarrierIQ APIs and writing their own tailor-made logging software to provide information to the carriers. What does HTC get for this? Do they have access to the information as well? HTC was unwilling to comment.It seems like everyone in this situation is pointing fingers at the carriers. So, we asked  Jason Gertzen of Sprint Corporate Communications for answers. Gertzen assured me that Sprint was unable to look at the contents of messages, photos, or videos using the CarrierIQ tools. He also noted that the information that is collected is not sold, and that no one but Sprint has access to a direct feed of the data they collect. Gertzen was unwilling to comment as to why Sprint was unwilling to provide an opt-out for the service, stating only that Sprint relies on CarrierIQ to help maintain network performance.Sprint does have it documented in their privacy policy that they “Monitor, evaluate or improve our Services, systems, or networks” and they “Anonymize or aggregate personal information for various purposes like market analysis or traffic flow analysis and reporting”. However, they also mention that that if they use your information to deliver advertising “tailored to your interests”, they share that information with the companies who specialize in delivering that tailored experience. That still falls under data that is provided without a direct feed, but what about the discovery made by Christopher Soghoian back in 2009 that exposed Sprint’s electronic surveillance group that was responsible for cooperating with law enforcement without probable cause? Their job was specifically to use a web portal with these law enforcement officers to show location and other relevant bits of data.Closing thoughtsData is sent, stored, and used by these companies at every level of your user experience. The carriers, manufacturers, ad companies, law enforcement, all have access to this information. You do not have the ability to turn it off, and once they have the information they store it for as long as they determine it is relevant, which is likely forever.As two of the largest producers of Android devices, the notion that HTC and Samsung (along with whoever else uses the service), takes information off of these devices without the user being aware and with no clear way to opt-out, then sends that information away for the carriers to use is troubling. One of the carriers has already admitted to selling the information they collect, and it’s not unlikely that the other carriers are doing the same. The information is not private in any way — associations with your hardware ID, subscriber ID, pages that clearly show phone numbers demonstrates that the people with access to this information know who the user is.At the moment, the only people with Android phones who are able to escape CarrierIQ are users who are brave enough to root their phones and flash a ROM that does not have the CarrierIQ software integrated with the operating system, like CyanogenMod. Without an opt-out policy for most of the information that is collected, I don’t think it is likely many people who are made aware of how their data is being collected and stored will be happy with their manufacturers, their carriers, or even Google for allowing this to happen.Additional information on this topic can be found at Trevor Eckhart’s site, Android Security Test.last_img read more

Attempted murder linked to protection racket

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The last of three suspects linked to the attempted murder of an Australian businessman on the Ionian island of Zakynthos was taken into custody, Greek police reported.A 42-year-old Bulgarian man and two Greeks, aged 34 and 47 respectively, are believed to have brutally beaten a 36-year-old Australian man with a bat and shot him in the leg. The man, an Australian national, runs a nightclub in the popular resort of Laganas.Investigators believe the three suspects attacked the businessman in July with the intent to kill him when the latter stopped paying them protection money. According to the police report, the Australian national told investigators that he had been paying in excess of 1,000 euros per week to two of the suspects – the 42-year-old and the 47-year-old – in 2011 and 2012 in order to ensure that his business was not threatened.last_img read more

Congrats to Team Blue and our payload customers on board today!— Blue Origin (@blueorigin) April 29, 2018“For the second time, Blue Origin’s test dummy ‘Mannequin Skywalker’ flew to space conducting astronaut telemetry and science studies,” according to the official YouTube video description. “The flight also carried research payloads for NASA, the German Aerospace Center (DLR), and commercial customers.”The experiments helped test Wi-Fi and life support for future space missions, as well as instruments designed to study solar system evolution and meteorite formation.Un-crewed flight testing of the complete New Shepard vehicle—named after Alan Shepard, the first American astronaut in space—began in 2015. Flights with test passengers and commercial passenger flights are expected to begin later this year. Blue Origin successfully completed the eighth launch of its New Shepard suborbital crewed vehicle.On Sunday, the reusable rocket shot into a cloudless sky above west Texas, reaching an impressive 351,000 feet.“That’s the altitude we’ve been targeting for operations,” company founder Jeff Bezos wrote in a post-mission tweet. “One step closer.”center_img Mannequin Skywalker is ready for his 2nd mission on board New Shepard.

Watch its ascent in the New Shepard livestream video below (skip to 38:30 for liftoff).Nearly silent but for host Ariane Cornell, the video lends a great sense of drama: between the altitude gauge racing toward apogee and the speed dashing closer and closer to 2,200 MPH before just as rapidly dropping as the rocket dives toward touchdown.The entire mission lasts only 10 minutes. But it’s 10 minutes of tension, excitement, and hope; I was white-knuckled, clenching my desk as New Shepard dove at 200 MPH toward the ground, sure it would crash into a million pieces before gracefully touching down.

Vancouver apartment fire quickly contained woman injured

first_imgA barking dog alerted residents Friday night of a fire in their Vancouver apartment, enabling them to escape the flames.Firefighters were called to the apartment at 10:30 p.m. on 3222 Edgewood Drive, finding the residents outside the building after they had reentered the burning structure and extinguished some of the fire on their own, said firefighter and paramedic Pete Adams, a public information officer for the Vancouver Fire Department.Adams said crews entered the building, extinguishing remaining hot spots.A woman who reentered the building was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation, and taken to a nearby hospital for further treatment, Adams said.While no one was seriously injured, Adams said the residents were lucky. “Never go back into a burning building,” he said. “(Fire) spreads so quickly. It’s not the heat, it’s the smoke” that often leads to injuries or death. “Smoke from fire is highly toxic and can be deadly.”last_img read more

Proper Role of Government Issue in Debate over Paid Sick Leave Bill

first_imgWhether government should mandate that employers provide paid sick leave to their employees is at the heart of the debate over the Maryland Healthy Working Families Act. The legislation is currently under consideration in both chambers of the General Assembly. Proponents of the bill argue that employers and employees benefit economically from the measure, and that the act promises potentially reduced health care costs by helping limit the spread of illnesses. Opponents counter that whatever the economic benefits for an employer, the decision to take advantage a potential benefit should be left up to the employer rather than mandated by the state. They argue that the employer is in a better position to determine the net effects of a paid sick leave policy on the broader expenditures of her business.The Act, sponsored by Democratic Majority Leader Sen. Catherine Pugh (D-Baltimore City) in the Senate and by Del. Luke Clippinger (D-Baltimore City) in the House, would require all employers with 10 employees or more to provide paid sick leave to their workers, who would earn one hour of leave for every 30 hours worked, up to 56 hours (the equivalent of seven eight-hour days) in one year. Employers with nine or fewer employees would have to provide similarly accrued but unpaid sick leave.“We believe that, in terms of the benefit to business and to employers, we expect there actually would be a positive benefit for employers of $132 million,” said Ben Orr, executive director of the Maryland Center on Economic Policy, a nonpartisan nonprofit specializing in research and analysis of policy proposals and a member of the advocacy coalition working towards passage of the act. “That’s largely due to savings from reduced turnover and increased productivity. Healthier employees make happier employees make more productive employees, and you don’t spread illness throughout the workplace – it’s more contained – so fewer employees have to take sick time off or are working sick.”Orr said the measure, by putting more money in worker’s pockets, could positively impact Maryland’s economy. He compared the measure to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, a program research shows generates $9 in economic activity for every $5 spent in benefits.Like food stamps, the Healthy Working Families Act largely benefits workers at the lower end of the income spectrum, according to Melissa Broome, senior policy advocate with the Job Opportunities Task Force. “Not surprisingly it usually is the workers who can least afford a day without pay who are the most likely to not have paid sick days,” said Broome. “Across the board 40 percent of workers in Maryland do not have paid sick leave, and that works out to over 700,000 Marylanders. But when you drill the numbers down and you look at the lowest wage workers, it’s 80 percent of them.”The Maryland Chamber of Commerce opposes the Healthy Working Families Act. According to Deriece Pate Bennett, vice president of government affairs for the Chamber, concerns range from a private right of action against employers to the fact that employers are not allowed to verify employee claims of sickness, to a concern that increased business costs and liabilities cause companies to leave the state.Ultimately, Bennett said, the Chamber’s opposition is less about paid sick leave and more of a philosophical difference about the role of government in business. “The Chamber believes that employers should certainly have the flexibility to address their workforce needs without the state intervening,” said Pate Bennett. “Employers don’t want their employees to be sick, we’re not bad guys, we don’t want people to come in sick when they really are sick, but we believe that there needs to be a flexibility because no [two] work place[s] are the same.”Implied in Bennett’s concerns about employees who “really are sick,” is the idea that workers might abuse paid sick leave, using the accrued time in ways other than its intended purpose. This is a position, Broome argues, which available data contradicts.“We have good evidence from other places that have implemented this type of law that . . . in the vast majority of instances, even in places where workers can earn seven paid sick days a year, the average that they take is usually around 2.4 days,” said Broome.The Chamber and advocates for the bill also differ on the overall costs of implementing paid sick leave. Advocates cite research by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research (IWPR) finding that paid sick leave imposes a cost of $0.21 per hour on employers, while giving them a benefit of $0.24 per hour from reduced turnover. The Chamber estimates implementation costs at $0.34 per hour, and Bennett argues there is no evidence implementing a law like this would actually reduce turnover.Dr. Jessica Milli, senior research associate with IWPR, notes there is research showing that paid sick leave reduces turnover, citing two studies, one from 1993 and the other from 2012. Both studies indicate an approximately 5 percent reduction in turnover for employees with paid sick leave.For Ellen Valentino, executive vice president of the Mid-Atlantic Petroleum Distributors Association Inc. (MAPDA), an association of convenience stores and energy distributors, the Act is well intentioned, but its one size fits all approach strips employers of too much flexibility. She said it fails to take into account that employers may be already providing other types of benefits that negate the necessity of paid sick leave, or that at least need to be considered when thinking about imposing costs on businesses to extend additional mandated benefits (as would be imposed by the Act).Ultimately, as with the Chamber, MAPDA’s concern has more to do with the mandate than paid sick leave itself. “I think it would be fair to say that the opposition to the bill is the government mandate and the one size fits all policy that just clearly doesn’t meet the needs of the work place. I think the government’s stepping into a space where employers and employees generally negotiate what their salary is, what their leave is, that type of thing,” said Valentino.Jessica Cooper, state director for the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Maryland, a small-business advocacy organization whose position on issues is determined through direct polling of members, says her organization’s members had “overwhelming strong concern” about government mandated paid sick leave, and noted that the decision to offer paid sick leave is better left to employers operating within the context of market forces. “Those [small businesses] who already offer paid leave, or a version of paid leave, were saying that they do so to separate themselves from the competition, and creating a cookie-cutter benefit means that they’ll have to try to find enough money to try to find another benefit to separate them from the rest,” said Cooper.Cooper also notes that many small businesses work with their employees to address sick time off, a flexibility she argues should be preserved since many small businesses operate within limited resources, making providing paid sick time off a challenge, and a decision better left to employers responding to conditions in the labor market.Broome, however, cites survey data showing that one in five women report being disciplined or fired (or knowledge of it happening to a family member) for taking time off for an illness or to care for a loved one. This suggests the market alone may not be sufficient to address the vulnerability of employees without sick leave.“At the end of the day, we need public policies that reflect the realities of today’s working families . . . and no one should risk job loss or financial devastation because of something as simple as coming down with the flu,” said Broome.ralejandro@afro.comlast_img read more

Unhealthy gut promotes Breast cancer spread

first_imgAn unhealthy, inflamed gut can drive breast cancer to become much more invasive and promote the spread of the disease to other parts of the body. According to the researchers from the University of Virginia in the US, following a healthy diet and lifestyle can help reduce severity of breast cancer. The study found that disrupting the microbiome of mice caused hormone receptor-positive breast cancer to become more aggressive. Altering the microbiome, the collection of microorganisms that live in the gut and elsewhere, had dramatic effects in the body, priming the cancer to spread. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”When we disrupted the microbiome’s equilibrium in mice by chronically treating them antibiotics, it resulted in inflammation systemically and within the mammary tissue,” said Melanie Rutkowski, from the University of Virginia. “In this inflamed environment, tumour cells were much more able to disseminate from the tissue into the blood and to the lungs, which is a major site for hormone receptor-positive breast cancer to metastasize,” said Rutkowski. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveMost breast cancers are hormone receptor positive, which means that their growth is fuelled by a hormone, either estrogen or progesterone. These hormones might help increasing the rate of growth of the cancer cells, but luckily they are also more likely to respond well to hormone therapy. “Disrupting the microbiome resulted in long-term inflammation within the tissue and the tumour environment,” said Rutkowski. “These findings suggest that having an unhealthy microbiome, and the changes that occur within the tissue that are related to an unhealthy microbiome, may be early predictors of invasive or metastatic breast cancer,” she said. “Ultimately, based upon these findings, we would speculate that an unhealthy microbiome contributes to increased invasion and a higher incidence of metastatic disease,” she added. Further research may help doctors to find a way to manipulate the microbiome in such a way that it may help reduce or get rid of breast cancer in patients, researchers said. “A healthy diet, high in fibre, along with exercise, sleep – all of those things that contribute to positive overall health,” said Rutkowski. Such measures can improve overall health, which is associated with a favourable outcome in the long term for breast cancer, Rutkowski said.last_img read more

first_img News | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 06, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Improves Heart Attack Risk Assessment When used with a common heart scan, machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence (AI), does better than… read more March 9, 2015 — A single scan could diagnose the cause of foot pain better and with less radiation exposure to the patient than other methods, according to a study in the March 2015 issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine. Imaging with 18F-fluoride positron emission tomography/magnetic resonance imaging (PET/MR), compared to 18F-fluoride positron emission tomography/computed topography (PET/CT), provides more diagnostic information with higher diagnostic certainty.Foot pain is a common problem in the daily routine of any orthopedic surgeon. It can be a clinical symptom of many different issues, from stress fractures to tumors. Multiple imaging modalities are available to help diagnose specific types of foot pain, but no one modality is useful for effectively diagnosing a wide range of causes. Imaging with 18F-fluoride PET is a highly sensitive tool but has low specificity for detection of metabolically active benign bone disease, while MR imaging provides excellent soft-tissue contrast and high resolution, which helps in specifying a diagnosis. Thus, combined, PET/MR can offer an important tool for the sensitive diagnosis of foot pathologies.In “Evaluation of 18F-Fluoride PET/MR and PET/CT in Patients with Foot Pain of Unclear Cause,” researchers compared the quality and diagnostic performance of 18F-fluoride PET/MR to those of 18F-fluoride PET/CT in 22 patients for whom the specific diagnosis was inconclusive after clinical examination and radiography. The results of overall image quality showed that PET/MR was significantly superior to PET/CT, with an overall excellent image quality score of 3.0/3 points in all PET/MR datasets, while PET/CT achieved 2.3 out of 3 possible points.“In our study, 18F-fluoride PET/MR provided more diagnostic information at a higher diagnostic certainty compared to 18F-fluoride PET/CT in patients with foot pain of unclear cause,” stated Isabel Rauscher, corresponding author of the study. “Besides information on bone metabolism, it provides additional diagnostic-relevant findings from soft-tissue and bone marrow pathology (e.g., bone marrow edema, ganglion cysts or tenosynovitis) compared to PET/CT.” Also, since MR involves no radiation and the scan allows a longer PET acquisition time, the patient’s exposure is lower than with CT.For more information: www.snmmi.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more News | Colonoscopy Systems | August 06, 2019 Rise in Early Onset Colorectal Cancer Not Aligned With Screening Trends A new study finds that trends in colonoscopy rates did not fully align with the increase in colorectal cancer (CRC) in… read more Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.

Indian basketball is the Senior National Championship The ‘Senior Nationals’ are the marquee event organised by the Basketball Federation of India (BFI) bringing together dozens of India’s state and unit teams in both men and women’s divisions for the most prestigious domestic title Held in Puducherry last January the previous edition of the Nationals marked two stories of redemption as 2016

window of FIBA’s new World Cup qualifying process began around the world in late November India’s men’s national team lost their first two games on the road to Lebanon and back home to Syria The chances of India for qualifying to the next round are now looking shakier In the next two international breaks India will play against Jordan and Lebanon at home in February and Syria and Jordan on the road in June/July If India can somehow finish top three in their group the next rounds will be held in August/September and November/December this year 3 A few months ago Indian basketball star
