Between 12001500 Moroccans Are Fighting With ISIS Report

Rabat – Between 1,200 and 1,500 Moroccan fighters are currently in the ranks of the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) war zone, according to a new report by the New York based intelligence consultancy Soufan Group.In May 2015, the Moroccan Ministry of Interior estimated the number of Moroccans who joined the military ranks of ISIS at 1,200 Jihadist fighters.However, the American intelligence consultancy’s report suggests that the true number is likely to be 1,500. The report noted that the majority of foreign fighters in Iraq and Syria are from Arab countries, with both the Middle East and the Maghreb supplying over 16,240, out of a total of between 27,000 and 31,000 foreign fighters coming from 18 countries.The number of European jihadists who joined the ranks of ISIS has more than doubled in the last 18 months, while the number of those coming from Russia and central Asia increased by nearly 300 percent, according to the same source.In the Arab world, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia and Jordan are the main suppliers of Jihadists with 6,000, 2,400 and 2,000 respectively.As of October 2015, an estimated 6,000 fighters had traveled to Syria from Tunisia, and in January 2015, around 600 Libyans were believed to have traveled to Syria, according to the same source.The report estimated the number of Algerian Jihadists participating in the civil war in Syria and Iraq at 170, as of May 2015.“For some North African countries, such as Libya and Tunisia, the phenomenon of foreign fighter hubs is even more apparent,” said the report.Libya’s Benghazi and Derna cities are known as a hotbed for recruitment. In Tunisia, Ben Gardane city has provided the largest number of foreign fighters, despite being a city of less than 80,000, according to the same source.Overall, the Soufan Group said the number of foreign fighters in Iraq and Syria has more than doubled since last year to at least 27,000. read more

Israel Sentences ArabIsraeli Poet Dareen Tatour to 5 Months in Prison

By Dil Bola Rabat – After posting her poetry on social media in 2015, Arab-Israeli poet Dareen Tatour was arrested on grounds of hate speech, initiating an Israeli court case that was finally settled in her conviction and sentencing on Tuesday. Dareen Tatour, a 36-year-old Palestinian poet and photographer who resides in Reinah, Israel, took to YouTube and Facebook in October of 2016 to release her poem “Qawem Ya Shaabi Qawemahum” or “Resist, My People, Resist.” In the recording of her reading, the poem was used as a soundtrack over footage of Palestinian youths flinging stones and firebombs at Israeli soldiers. In May 2018, Tatour was convicted guilty of incitement to violence online and of supporting the Palestinian militant group aimed at the uprising, ‘Islamic Jihad.’ The final sentencing took place on July 31. Official minutes released by the state’s Justice Ministry declared a five-month imprisonment for the poet coupled with a six-month suspended sentence to her jail time. Tatour’s reaction was nonchalant as she “…wasn’t expecting justice to be done.” She maintained in her statement to reporters, “The case was political from the start, because I am Palestinian and support freedom of speech.” ‘Resist, My People, Resist’The most significant lines in Tatour’s poem, as translated by Tariq al Haydar, are: “Resist, my people, resist them.Resist the settler’s robberyAnd follow the caravan of martyrs.Shred the disgraceful constitutionWhich imposed degradation and humiliationAnd deterred us from restoring justice.”After posting the poem, Tatour took to Facebook once again, this time sharing her views in the form of a news story. Coupled with what Israeli officials claim was a call for “a continuation of the Intifada,” she posted three photos exhibiting Israeli security forces and Jewish extremists killing an Israeli-Arab woman and two Palestinian children. Tatour had added a description in Arabic: “I am the next shahid” (referring to the Arabic word for martyr). The Israeli interpretationThe publishing of the poem coincided with an outbreak of frequent and fatal attacks by Palestinians on Israelis coined the “Stabbing Intifada.” The string of attacks led the Israeli government to believe online incitement fueled the violence; thus the government launched a legal crackdown.The number of indictments and prosecutions has tripled since 2014 primarily in charging young Palestinians. Due to the situational context, authorities claimed Tatour’s poem was a call for violence, and she was arrested a few days later. Tatour vehemently denied the charges, claiming the Israeli authorities were misinterpreting her work as she called for non-violence within the struggle rather than an exacerbation of the existing brutality regardless of which side exhibited it.The case quickly became notable in the debate of freedom of speech. Advocates both within Israel and abroad began to advocate for Tatour’s rights. Furthermore, the case drew attention, causing the world to question the Israeli government’s use of technology as they search social media for suspicious users inciting violence or attacks on Israel. read more

Greenland is hurting Denmark very badly Trump pitches a longshot sale

President Donald Trump confirmed Sunday that he has asked his administration to explore the possibility of buying Greenland, opining that “essentially, it’s a large real estate deal.”“A lot of things can be done,” Trump told reporters in Morristown, New Jersey, after wrapping up a 10-day vacation at his private golf club. He noted that owning Greenland “would be nice” for the United States from a strategic perspective, but he cautioned: “It’s not number one on the burner, I can tell you that.”Trump’s desire to buy Greenland, which is part of the kingdom of Denmark, was first reported last week by the Wall Street Journal. Two people with direct knowledge of the directive told The Washington Post that the president has mentioned the idea for weeks, and that aides are waiting for more direction before they decide how seriously they should look into it.Trump is scheduled to visit Denmark in two weeks, although he said Sunday that his visit is not related to his interest in Greenland.“Not for this reason at all,” he said.In the days since news broke of Trump’s desire to buy Greenland, the idea has been ridiculed by politicians in Denmark, and Greenland’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Friday that the island is not for sale.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.“Greenland is rich in valuable resources such as minerals, the purest water and ice, fish stocks, seafood, renewable energy and is a new frontier for adventure tourism,” the ministry said in a tweet. “We’re open for business, not for sale.” Denmark’s Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen arrives for the European Union leaders summit in Brussels, Belgium, June 21, 2019. Jonathan NACKSTRAND / AFP Earlier Sunday, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow confirmed Trump’s interest in Greenland, noting that the self-governing country is a “strategic place.”“It’s developing. We’re looking at it,” Kudlow said on “Fox News Sunday.” “Denmark owns Greenland. Denmark is an ally. Greenland is a strategic place …. I’m just saying the president, who knows a thing or two about buying real estate, wants to take a look.”Trump said Sunday that owning Greenland is “hurting Denmark very badly” and that “they carry it at a great loss,” although he did not immediately provide evidence to back up those claims.Although many in the United States have mocked the idea, one Democratic lawmaker on Sunday voiced openness to considering it. Sen. Joe Manchin III, W.Va., said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that “changes are happening” in Greenland as a result of climate change, “and the people up there understand it and they’re trying to adjust to it.”“We have a very strategic base up there, a military base, which we visited,” Manchin said, referring to his visit to Greenland earlier this year as part of a bipartisan congressional delegation. “And I understand the strategy for that in that part of the world and the Arctic opening up the way it is now.”He called Trump’s idea “a very interesting proposal” and said the Senate Armed Services Committee, on which Manchin sits, should be receiving a secure briefing about it in the near future if the plan “has any merit to it.” Piroschka van de Wouw / REUTERS Trump is not the first U.S. president to propose buying Greenland. Kudlow noted Sunday that after World War II, President Harry S. Truman’s administration offered to purchase the country from Denmark for $100 million. The U.S. military had a presence in Greenland during the war as a means to protect the continent if Germany tried to attack.With melting ice making the region more accessible, the United States has been firm in trying to counter any moves by Russia and China in the Arctic. China declared itself a “near-Arctic nation” last year and has defended its desire for a “Polar Silk Road” in which Chinese goods would be delivered by sea from Asia to Europe.China recently sought to bankroll the construction of three airports in Greenland, drawing concern from then-Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and prompting the Pentagon to make the case to Denmark that it should fund the facilities itself rather than rely on Beijing. Residents of Kulusuk walk in Kulusuk, Greenland on August 16, 2019. – Greenland is not for sale, the mineral-rich island said on August 16, 2019, after a newspaper reported that US President Donald Trump was asking advisers whether it’s possible for the United States to buy the Arctic island. read more

Commentary NFL blackout threats dangerous unfair to fans

The NFL is the most popular sport in the United States. Millions of people tune in week in and week out to watch their favorite teams play or participate in the phenomenon that is fantasy football.Professional football has a stranglehold on the United States, one that in recent years it has been exploiting to its fullest.The most recent exploitation has come on a weekend that is usually celebrated by teams starting their potential runs at the Super Bowl.Wild Card weekend has come and gone seemingly without a hitch, unless you’re a fan of the losing teams. But if it weren’t for an 11th hour push for ticket sales by the NFL, many fans wouldn’t have been able to watch their teams play.The NFL threatened to black out the local television markets in the cities hosting wild card games unless their stadiums were completely sold out.While you wouldn’t expect for it to be difficult to sell out an NFL playoff game, there are two variables that made this task so hard.Weather and money.Temperatures in the host cities this time of year aren’t for the faint of heart.Places like Cincinnati, Philadelphia and Boston, all cities that are scheduled to host playoff games, have below freezing temperatures this time of year. But nothing quite like the legendary Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin, where wind chill at kickoff of the Packers game against the 49ers Sunday was below zero.If these unappealing, borderline unsafe temperatures, weren’t enough to turn off the fans from wanting to come out to the games, the outrageous ticket prices could very well have been.According to a report by “Forbes,” the average ticket prices at Lambeau Field were $349 for Sunday’s game. Not exactly a cheap price for a blue collar town like Green Bay, especially if you want to bring your family or a couple of friends.By forcing people to purchase tickets to these games just so they aren’t subject to a blackout, the NFL is essentially requiring some fans to put themselves in harm’s way just so their neighbors don’t have to suffer.In a day and age where the NFL is enforcing rules left and right to protect the players, it seems ironic that they would willingly participate in putting the fans in danger.A small part of me hoped the NFL would have blacked out one of the games because it could have motivated someone to stand up the big bad NFL. If a corporate sponsor did not buy up the unsold tickets and the blackout had gone into effect fans would not have stood for it. Outcry against the NFL likely would have erupted. Boycotts, riots, who knows what would have happened.But as it stands, the NFL still has all the power, something that can’t lead to much good in the future. read more

Showjumper rode over retired policewoman after being knocked out of competition

first_imgA showjumper has admitting trampling on a retired policewoman on horseback after wrongly accusing her of filming an equestrian event she had been competing in on her mobile phone.Amy Ridler, 20, of Cherrywood Crescent, Solihull, confessed to assaulting Jillian Williams whilst her ten-year-old daughter watched in horror at a competition held at the UK equestrian centre in Grantham last April.Pleading guilty at Lincoln Magistrates, the court heard how Ridler, 20, had charged at Mrs Williams, grabbing her by the hair and dragging her across the arena floor, before coaxing her horse towards her in an attempt to trample on her again. After being knocked unconscious, Mrs Williams claimed that Ridler attempted to steer the horse over her motionless body before being dragged from the animal by a group of spectators.Although heavily bruised from the attack, the mother-of-one escaped with only minor injuries.Ridler was fined fined £250, ordered to pay £300 in compensation and handed a restraining order prohibiting her from communicating with Mrs Williams until January 2019.A spokeswoman for British Showjumping confirmed that the governing body was aware of the incident and had  begun disciplinary procedures against Ridler. Amy Ridler, from Solihull, West Midlands, pleaded guilty Ridler was fined £250 Mrs Williams, 50, a former dog handler for Sussex Police, described how Ridler had mistakenly accused her of filming the competition, only to then ride her down when she tried to escape.“I’d forgotten to cancel my dog walker that day, so I was trying to text him while watching Amy showjump,” she said.“The sun was in my eyes and I couldn’t see, so I was waving my phone all over the place. She saw me standing there with my phone and thought I was filming her, and went mad.“She was shouting at her mum, who was nearby, to ‘get that f***ing phone off her’; she was shouting and swearing and saying she was going to run me down as she rode her horse at me.” Ridler was fined £250Credit:Caters News Agencycenter_img Mrs Williams, who is the district commissioner of Brocklesby Hunt Pony Club, described how Ridler had then pinned her against the arena’s side railing as she lifted her up by her hair.“I kept really calm but then she pushed me into the railing. I was squashed against it and I raised my arm to try and push the horse off me.“Next thing I know, I felt this incredible pain on my head and she clawed my head and picked me up. She then dragged me along the floor under the pony and I was trampled on.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

In four encounters at St Lucia, only two teams have got past the 100-run mark: South Africa with 102 while chasing and West Indies 107 batting first.However, West Indies and Bangladesh are the only teams in Group A that played in Guyana, but both teams have not made significant contributions with the bat in contrast to the other top teams in the tournament. West Indies are one win away from booking a place in the semi-finals, but their batters must immediately step up to the task and gather momentum moving to Antigua for the final leg of the tournament starting Thursday, November 22.Kaciya Knight has been the only shining light with the bat for the West Indies with 64 runs in two innings. In the bowling department, West Indies were extraordinary: Deandra Dottin and Stafanie Taylor bowled match-winning spells in both matches.Sri Lanka will look to their captain, Chamari Athapaththu to lead them to victory and S Siriwardene, who copped the Player of the Match award in their last match against Bangladesh. Similarly, Sri Lanka batters would be hoping to put in some brilliant batting performance in the important clash against West Indies. (Brandon Corlette) read more

Rock boring and remote drilling technologies highlighted in Master Drilling results

first_imgMaster Drilling might have faced a tough macroeconomic operating environment than previously expected in 2018, but the company was able to make progress on several fronts.The company’s revenues increased 14.2% year-on-year to $138.7 million in 2018, while its headline earnings per share decreased 7.8% to $0.107.Master Drilling CEO, Danie Pretorius, said notwithstanding the difficult trading conditions, the company “remained steadfast in the pursuit and implementation” of its strategy, “laying the foundation for future growth through the continued development of new, ground-breaking technologies, the expansion of our global footprint and by nurturing our client and business relationships”.The company exited the year with an order book of $203.6 million and a pipeline of $578.6 million.In terms of the company’s “ground-breaking technologies”, the company said it made progress on three fronts:Unveiling and subsequently launching the Mobile Tunnel Borer (MTB) and announcing the Tunnel Pro Srl joint venture;Developing the Blind Shaft Boring system technology, and;Introducing remote drilling operations.On the former, Master Drilling said, following testing at a quarry in Italy, the MTB was being shipped back to South Africa to take part in a pilot project.It said testing of the Blind Shaft Boring system technology was also underway.And, on the remote drilling applications, it had this to say:“Recently, Master Drilling introduced Remote Drilling, which has been successfully commissioned at AngloGold Ashanti’s Mponeng mine, considered the world’s deepest mine.“Remote drilling enables operation of an automated drill rig from a remote location. Master Drilling’s remote raise bore machine is currently working 3 km underground at Mponeng mine which is being operated from the contractor’s site office on surface.”The Master Drilling remote system is a proprietary ‘plug and play’ control and display module that connects to the drill rig’s local control module through the mine’s underground and shaft communication network, it said.“By removing all personnel from the dangerous underground environment, this self-driven mechanism has proven to improve production time and confirms that autonomous drilling technology is at the core of safer mining operations,” it said.last_img read more

Trinity makes it back into worlds top 150 universities after error kept

first_img Feb 10th 2017, 4:00 PM Trinity makes it back into world’s top 150 universities after error kept it out of rankings Trinity College Dublin came in at 131st in the world rankings. Friday 10 Feb 2017, 4:00 PM Image: Shutterstock/Leonid Andronov Image: Shutterstock/Leonid Andronov 17,094 Views TRINITY COLLEGE DUBLIN has been announced as the only Irish university to make it into the world’s top 150 this year, but an error in the data it supplied to the rankings body meant that it hasn’t been rated as highly as it should have over the past couple of years.For 2016/17, Trinity has been ranked as 131st in the world.It wasn’t ranked in the last round of Times Higher Education World University rankings because of an error in the documentation it supplied to Times Higher Education (THE).When they were excluded from the rankings which were announced last September, a spokesperson for Trinity College told TheJournal.ie said it was working closely with THE to resolve the issue which is a result of “underestimating research income”.The rankings judge different universities based on their citations, industry income, international outlook, research and teaching.A statement from Trinity today said that they had “discovered an error in its returns and undertook an audit of data”.This error “incorrectly depressed Trinity’s ranking”, they said.When they drew the error to the THE’s attention, their rankings have been changed to reflect this.This means that Trinity is ranked 131st in the world this year, and came in 101st place in 2015-16.Dean of Research, Professor John Boland, said: “It is good news for the University and good news for Ireland which now more so than ever needs to promote and nurture the success of flagship institutions with a truly global reach.That said, we have still dropped 30 places in a single year. This amounts to a 30% drop in rank and crystallises the international headwinds facing the Irish university sector following a decade of neglect and chronic underfunding.“If the Government expects excellence from the universities and the capacity to create the sort of skilled workforce needed in a post-Brexit world, it must begin to invest in education once again.”The results for Ireland weren’t positive in the THE World University Rankings for 2016-17, with no other university making it into the top 100.The following was provided before Trinity’s mark was reaffirmed. Source: Times Higher Education World University RankingsPhil Baty, the editor of the rankings, said at the time that the statistics represented “bad news for Ireland”. He said:The country’s best universities are struggling in the most comprehensive and the most exacting of all the global rankings. While the root of the problem is the increased competition among the world’s elite universities, particularly those in Asia, it seems clear that the major funding cuts endured by Ireland’s universities are causing problems.Read: Irish universities fail to make the top 200 in global rankingsRead: Tusla ‘in the process of apologising’ to McCabe over false sex abuse allegation Share115 Tweet Email5 By Sean Murray 27 Comments http://jrnl.ie/3233002 Short URL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Madagascar découverte dune nouvelle espèce de lémurien

first_imgMadagascar : découverte d’une nouvelle espèce de lémurien Publiant leurs travaux dans la revue Primates, des chercheurs malgaches et allemands ont découvert, dans l’est de la grande île africaine, une nouvelle espèce de primate appartenant à une famille déjà connue de lémuriens minuscules.C’est en inventoriant, en 2008-2009, la faune de la forêt jusqu’alors non étudiée de Sahafina, dans l’est de Madagascar, que des chercheurs du Groupe d’Étude et de Recherche sur les Primates de Madagascar (GERP) ont photographié et capturé plusieurs spécimens de petits lémuriens. Des animaux qu’ils ont ensuite mesuré et soumis à divers prélèvements avant de les relâcher. À lire aussiCe chimpanzé a trouvé la technique pour transporter 12 oranges à la foisLes résultats des analyses permettent aujourd’hui au professeur Ute Radespiel, de l’Institut de Zoologie de l’Université de Hanovre (Allemagne), d’établir qu’il s’agit d’une nouvelle espèce, qui a été baptisée Microcebus gerpi, en hommage au GERP. Avec ses 68 grammes, ce petit primate (d’ailleurs menacé par la déforestation) fait pourtant figure de ‘géant’ comparé à son proche cousin de la forêt voisine, qui n’excède pas 44 grammes.”Nous avons été plutôt surpris par cette découverte. La forêt de Sahafina n’est située qu’à 50 kilomètres du Parc national de Mantadia, dans l’est malgache, qui abrite une espèce différente et bien plus petite, Microcebus lehilahytsara”, a expliqué le Pr Radespiel cité par Science Daily.

Leverage your leopard the biz behind Alaskas only zoo

first_imgIf you’ve ever wanted to feed a snow leopard, a moose, or a pack of wolves, this year you’ve got a chance. Albeit, for a tidy sum.Download AudioIt’s part of a package deal at the Alaska Zoo–one piece in a funding strategy particular to non-profits in the high north: Finding ways to bring in extra cash during the long, lean winter months ahead of tourist season.On a recent Monday afternoon, zookeeper Timothy Lescher split a side of caribou ribs with a hand-saw.“I think we got probably nine pieces here, which is a good number.”He stuffs assorted chunks of carcass into a black trash-bag, and gets ready to toss piece after piece over the fence to a hungry pack of wolves.“Looks delicious, doesn’t it?” Lescher asked as the wolves whined nearby.“Is that moose scapula?” I asked.“Yes,” he replied. “The wolves, they like everything.”The five loping lupines are just a few in the long list of Lescher’s animal wards: Brown bears, the snow leopard, dall sheep, trumpeter swans, among others.“I also take care of the petting zoo animals,” he added.It’s like parenting a barn full of kids, even though some are on opposing sides of the food-chain. Lescher has made peace with the gentle contradiction that is zoo-keeping wild animals. The wolf pack is kept alive on a diet made up partially of donated meat scraps that come–quite feasibly–from cousins of a nearby adolescent moose named Uncle Fudge, that Lescher raised from the bottle.Zookeeper Timothy Lescher feeds a frozen banana to Uncle Fudge, a one-year-old moose he’s helped raise. Photo: Zachariah Hughes, APM.When we stop at Uncle Fudge’s pen he lunges excitedly at his keeper’s palm for pieces of frozen banana.Likewise, Lescher is unfazed by the pacing and growls that greet us when we step into the chilly lair of a leopard.“You just wanna make sure you stay against this wall, because he will jump up on this fence,” Lescher tells me.“Ok,” I heed.Lescher is giving me a behind-the-scenes tour of the zoo as part of a special program called “Keeper for a Day.” For $200 a person you shadow the zookeepers for five hours, feeding fruit to shaggy Bactrian Camels, watching the wolves get walked on chain-leashes, or watching Nakai the snow leopard nibble lunch from Lescher’s finger-tips.In the wild, Nakai would be stalking blue sheep, ibexes, or Tibetan yaks in the Himalayan mountains. Today he’s getting high-grade hamburger.“That’s all bud,” Lescher tells the elongated feline, who gives a very relatable growl as the meat runs out.Nakai has the coloring and musculature of a very buff house-cat blown up to the size of a coffee-table. Plus a three-foot long tail for balancing on snowy boulders. His globular eyes are captivating, and when the food is gone his head bobs up and down tracking my movements in a flattering but unsettling way.“Keep your back against the wall, is what I tell people, and you’ll be fine,” Lescher adds.Nakai is the only snow leopard at the zoo. Lescher says they hope to get him a companion, but the wait-list for endangered snow leopards makes that unlikely within the next year. Photo: Zachariah Hughes.For animal super-fans this is the sweet nectar of first-hand experience the Alaska Zoo is leveraging to help pay its bills.“The zoo is actually comprised of like six different businesses,” said Jill Myer, the zoo’s development director.At the standing desk in her office, overlooking the alpaca pen, she ran through line after line of the organization’s expenses.“$125,000 dollars a year–I mean, that’s just to basically care for the animals,” Myer said. It covers things like toys, husbandry, and food.“That doesn’t seem as huge as I thought,” I replied.“It doesn’t, but then you need to continue on: A lot of the care of the animals comes into staff.”It turns out, the most expensive zoo creatures are the keepers. The biggest expense in the budget is salaries and benefits for employees. It costs more to cover human medical insurance than buy all the animal food.There are other challenges that make funding a sub-arctic zoo a little–let’s say, unique. Most of last fiscal year’s $2,936,700 in last year’s revenues came from admissions during the summer, when tour buses and cruise ships unleash a steady torrent of visitors. The zoo even extends its hours.“It’s Alaska, and there’s light, and you can come to the zoo in the middle of the night and there’s animals still up and roaming around,” Myer excitedly explained.Angelica Evans feeds fruit to a male Bactrian camel. Photo: Zachariah Hughes, APM.Unfortunately, because the zoo specializes in cold-weather creatures, they aren’t exactly in their element during tourist season. The tigers get sluggish, and if the mercury climbs too high the bears demand special accommodations.“When it gets over 70 degrees we start trucking in ice, and so they just lay in the ice and they’re so thankful.”Winter is when the most of the mega-fauna are a bit more out and about. And they aren’t the only ones. With the bears hibernating, the hours reduced, and fewer visitors wandering around, the keepers have extra time too.The Keeper for A Day program is a way for the zoo to leverage its biggest assets–the allure of the animals and the expertise of the keepers–to make extra money when the grounds are under utilized. They also rent the zoo out for weddings and host special programs. None of these revenue streams take in that much–Keeper For Day brought in just $15,500 last year. But that buys a snow leopard a lot of hamburger meat.Offering programs that get more enthusiastic patrons to spend on unique experiences isn’t unique to the zoo. It’s part of a strategy non-profits and cultural institutions across the state use to cultivate buy-in. Keeper for a Day is a refined extension of the Alaska Sealife Center’s annual gala or museum events increasingly aimed at a younger, hipper set.Ann Hale directs development at the Anchorage Museum, and has more than two decades of experience funding non-profits in Alaska. The fundraising profile exists at peer institutions in the Lower-48, but amplified in Alaska.“Because the economy here is reliant on summer tourism,” Hale said sitting in her office, overlooking no animals. “It may be more unique for us than it is in other states or other communities.”Like the zoo, the Anchorage Museum collects the majority of its admissions revenue during the three-and-a-half month summer window. Alaska non-profits have to plan accordingly for the non-tourist season, according to Hale.Lescher, the zookeeper, is less concerned with the finances than a longer-term set of goals when it comes to programs like Keeper for a Day.“I see as many adults as I do kids. Sometimes they’re aspiring zookeepers, sometimes they’re just people that have an intense interest in wildlife or in animals in general.”He thinks that if a zoo can get people invested in a relationship with Nakai the leopard or Uncle Fudge the moose, that serves their larger mission of animal conservation.last_img read more

Will hold rallies in Delhi to oust antipeople Modi govt Abhishek

first_imgKolkata: Trinamool Congress will organise rallies in Delhi to oust the anti-people Modi government at the Centre, said Trinamool Youth Congress president and party MP Abhishek Banerjee.He was addressing a gathering to protest against the hike in the price of petroleum products at Dorina Crossing on Monday afternoon.Banerjee said the prices of petrol and diesel have gone up even on Monday and the Centre has made no attempts till date to reduce the prices of petroleum products. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeHe said BJP had asked the state government to reduce state excise and VAT. Between 2014-18, Central excise has been increased nine times, while there has been “zero” rise in state excise and VAT.Banerjee alleged that to divert the attention of people, BJP has brought up the Hindu- Muslim issue. “This trick will not work any more. Whenever there is any major problem in the country, BJP immediately brings in Hindu-Muslim and communal issues to divert the attention of people.” Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedHe said Trinamool is the first political party to raise its voice against the Centre. Immediately after the prices of petroleum products started soaring, party supremo Mamata Banerjee had criticised it. Trinamool Youth Congress started a dharna and held rallies in South and North Kolkata over the issue.”We will continue to protest against the anti-people government till it is ousted,” he said.State Urban Development and Municipal Affairs minister Firhad Hakim said BJP national president Amit Shah has said that the party will remain in power for 50 years, but in reality if it stays for more than five days, people’s ordeal will go up.”Forget about BJP remaining in power at Delhi for 50 years. If they stay for five more days it will be bad for the country. It is a party whose only business is to loot people,” said Hakim.Meanwhile, Trinamool Congress leaders and workers took part in a rally to protest against the prices of petroleum products on Monday. The rally started from Moulali and ended at Dorina Crossing, where a meeting was organised.last_img read more

Feature | June 12, 2015 Ultrasound to Breakup STEMI Causing Clots in Heart Attack Patients Breakthrough Research Demonstrates Contrast Ultrasound Can be Used as Heart Attack Treatment  October 30, 2013 — Philips Healthcare and Infraredx Inc. announced a non-exclusive resale agreement for Infraredx’s TVC intravascular imaging system. Under the terms of the agreement, Philips will sell Infraredx’s TVC imaging system alongside its Allura interventional X-ray systems in North America and Europe, expanding its interventional cardiology portfolio of advanced live image-guidance solutions, clinical informatics and interventional tools.The TVC imaging system is a first-in-class intravascular imaging system that integrates near-infrared spectroscopy lipid core plaque (LCP) detection technology, and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) imaging to visualize the presence of plaques, quantify the degree of vessel stenosis and identify plaques prone to rupturing and causing dangerous blockages.“Our goal is to further improve existing image-guided interventions and therapies and to enable new ones,” said Ronald Tabaksblat, general manager, interventional X-ray at Philips Healthcare. “By teaming up with Infraredx to sell the TVC imaging system, our product portfolio will be enhanced with an innovative intravascular imaging technology that works seamlessly with our interventional X-ray systems for better-informed treatment decisions and real-time therapy monitoring.”“We’re pleased to partner with Philips, the leader in interventional X-ray systems, to expand access to our innovative TVC imaging system among Philips’ broad and established customer base in North America and Europe,” said Don Southard, president and CEO of Infraredx. “This resale agreement advances our global commercialization strategy by increasing our product’s penetration in the cardiac imaging market.”Infraredx and Philips previously launched a software solution in March 2013 to enable the integration of the TVC imaging system with Philips’ Allura Xper and AlluraClarity interventional X-ray systems. The software enables an easy and quick setup of the TVC imaging system in conjunction with Philips’ Allura systems, and it allows clinicians tableside control of the TVC imaging system using the Allura system controls.Clinicians can view a TVC composite image, which shows both the near-infrared spectroscopy image and the IVUS image, alongside the coronary angiogram on the Philips Allura monitors. The TVC composite image allows for better visualization of LCPs, which are known to cause complications in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures and suspected of being the principal cause of most heart attacks. For more information: www.healthcare.philips.com, www.infraredx.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享last_img read more
