Shane Warne eyes IPL-like success after appointmenet as coach of Lord’s Hundred team

first_imgLegendary Shane Warne has been appointed head coach of the London Spirits team for next year’s Hundred competition and the Australian is looking to replicate the success he enjoyed with the IPL side Rajasthan Royals.As captain-cum-coach of Rajasthan Royals, the former leg-spinner had led the side to title-triumph in the inaugural IPL edition in 2008.”I’m very proud and very honoured to be asked to be the head coach of the Hundred team based at Lord’s. The opportunity to coach in a brand new tournament and work with modern-day players is something that I will really enjoy and I am looking forward to the challenge,” Warne said.”I love the concept of the Hundred and it has grabbed my attention in the same way the IPL did,” he was quoted as saying by ‘The Guardian’.Run by England and Wales Cricket Board, the first edition of ‘The Hundred’ — a professional 100-ball cricket league — is scheduled for next year.The league will consist of eight city-based franchise teams, each of which will field both a men’s and women’s team.The 49-year-old said he was excited about building the team from scratch.”This tournament will unearth some heroes and hopefully some future World Cup stars for England and other countries.”We built a team from scratch with a diverse range of players from different backgrounds and ages and I can’t wait to build the same mix of players to entertain the fans who come down to Lord’s for the Hundred,” said Warne.advertisementMeanwhile, former Australia women’s coach Lisa Keightley will coach the women’s London team.Also Read | Global T20 Canada: Shoaib Malik shatters glass window with huge sixesAlso Read | Misbah-ul-Haq in race to become Pakistan head coach: ReportsAlso See:last_img read more

Sean Dyche left ‘raging’ by late Alexis Sánchez penalty winner for Arsenal

first_imgShare on LinkedIn Everton show zero fight or direction in 4-1 rout at Southampton Arsenal Share on Pinterest match reports Share on Facebook Burnley’s Sean Dyche: ‘It was a big decision, but we’ve had a few of them go against us’ – video Read more Share on Twitter Topics Reuse this content Play Video Arsène Wenger had a different view, having talked to Ramsey. “When you speak to him, he didn’t throw himself on the ground,” Arsenal’s manager said. “He wanted to go back and flick the ball, he was pushed in the back, had a problem in the neck from the push – it was a very strong push.”Given Burnley’s impressive first-half display Wenger could not have complained if Arsenal had been beaten. Arsenal, though, did display steely character to come back into the contest after the interval.After Arsenal arrived at Turf Moor only 52 minutes before kick-off, Wenger sent out a different XI to the losing one at Cologne on Thursday. The chief exclusion was Mesut Özil, though this was because of illness. “How bad is he, will he be available for Wednesday [the match against Huddersfield Town]?” Wenger said. “We’ll have to see what it is.”Dyche made no changes from the 2-0 win against Swansea City and could be pleased with the scintillating opening 45 minutes his team produced. First, Johann Berg Gudmundsson forced Ramsey to concede a free-kick. When Robbie Brady’s delivery to Petr Cech’s left-post area was repelled, moments later the Icelander intervened again. This time some Gudmundsson trickery bought a yard and he crossed towards the lurking Ashley Barnes. Arsenal once more cleared but it seemed obvious Dyche had instructed his men to get at the visitors via the long ball.In a flash, though, Burnley came close to going behind. The previously muted Alexandre Lacazette broke and flipped the ball in to Ramsey, who should have beaten Pope. This was now a spectacle to make the senses tingle. What impressed about Dyche’s men was the speed of pass and movement. Yet Arsenal – and Sánchez, in particular – pinned Burnley back when the second period started. After the Chilean put in Sead Kolasinac deep in Burnley’s area it was their turn to scramble clear.It pointed to how Arsenal were edging the half but had to stay alert. Following the introduction of Jack Wilshere for Alex Iwobi on 66 minutes, Brady crashed a shot back off Koscielny and the sense was that the game could go either way.Arsenal triumphed and they re-enter the top four, a point above Tottenham Hotspur. Wenger said: “For us after the win against Tottenham [last week] it was important to go away and win it and that’s what we did – for the benefit of the team it’s very important. They [Burnley] defended very well, they were well organised, clever, intelligent and direct. When you play them you understand why they have 22 points.”Dyche said: “There’s a lot of me inside that’s raging a lot. I’ve told them [his players] that we continue to develop, we continue to move forward.“I’ve also told them this is the reality. Football’s a harsh game and sometimes it hurts you.” 1:06 This riveting spectacle ended in Burnley heartbreak when James Tarkowski came together with Aaron Ramsey in the area and Lee Mason awarded a penalty. Alexis Sánchez slid the ball home, to Nick Pope’s right. Seconds later Mason blew for time and boos filled the air.This was because Ramsey made the most of the contact from Tarkowski, though as soon as hands go on a player in the box the official has a decision to make. Share via Email Premier League Afterwards a disappointed Sean Dyche touched on this. “It was highly unlikely it wasn’t going to get given, you can draw your conclusions from that,” the Burnley manager said. “It probably is a penalty but it was never not going to be given, I can assure you. You lay your hands on someone, he goes down, they are tough calls; you have to be 100%, which I assume the referee is.“It’s a tough job for referees, it’s not going to change. There were some frustrations with some of the moments – I’ve not spoken to him. Ramsey, that was a smash in the back compared to what most people go down with.”This was the third consecutive time Burnley have lost to Arsenal in controversial circumstances. In last season’s corresponding fixture Laurent Koscielny’s handball was missed in a finish that proved to be the winner. Burnley claimed the defender was also offside. In the reverse game at the Emirates, Sánchez claimed the points with a disputed 98th-minute spot-kick.Dyche may have had all this in mind when talking about Sunday’s penalty decision. “We’ve had a lot not given,” he said. “I don’t know why. The bigger clubs seem to get the decisions; I’m not sure it’s that fact [this afternoon]. You have to be clear only because it’s unlikely he’s ever going to get there [to the ball], so when is a foul a foul?” Share on WhatsApp Share on Messenger Burnleylast_img read more

Central Bottle: A Taste of Venice in Boston

first_img Get Naked with Independent Winemakers with NakedWines Delivery Kit Get to Know Alto Adige, the Northern Italian Wine Region America’s Oldest City Has a Super-Modern Dining and Drinking Scene A Quick and Easy Guide to Popular German Wine Varietals Editors’ Recommendations Helpful Wine Terminology So You Sound Like You Know What You’re Talking About Hey. Let’s go to Italy and drink a lot of wine, and then come home and open a wine shop. Maybe substitute the wine for pizza, but this is probably every twenty-something, (or thirty or forty-something) American’s fantasy. But for longtime friends Dave and Maureen Rubino, Nick Zappia, and Liz Vilardi, this fantasy became a reality. Returning from a group trip to Venice, the four opened Central Bottle in Cambridge, Massachusetts.Vilardi, also co-owner and wine director at Belly Wine Bar and the blue room in Kendall Square, says that part of the inspiration for the store comes from a small shop that the four found during their time in Italy. “It was this perfect, intimate, neighborhood wine store. You could have a sip of wine and a little cheese and just hang out. We loved it and wanted to bring some of that back to the U.S.”It was also crucial to the four partners that the store be clean and sleek, complete with Venetian red pillars and a floor-to-ceiling glass wall facing Massachusetts Avenue. Vilardi explains: “I think a lot of wine stores like to have clutter, like cardboard boxes and stuff lying around everywhere, because they think it’s very celler-ish. But we wanted to keep the store beautiful, easy to move through, and simple.”Central Bottle’s wine selections mirror the store’s mission to reign in “small production, handcrafted, sustainable, organic, and biodynamic wines from all over the world.” bottles in the shop include a Frank Cornelisson Contadino No. 9 (murky and natural), a Vietti (“elegant…eloquent…remarkable”), and a Sybille Kuntz Riesling that Vilardi recommends.“I want people to come in here and feel free to share their tastes: what they like and what they don’t like. I wish people knew that, when they buy wine, they aren’t being judged as much as they think they are. We want to talk with you and help you find the wines that you’ll really love, regardless of price,” Vilardi tells us.As if the carefully selected 450 wines aren’t enough, the shop also sells 85 different cheeses – washed rind, blue, Italian, and several handcrafted cheeses from the Northeast. Vilardi also hopes to offer a four-part wine education series starting in February.Wine, cheese, and salumi? All we have to say, Central Bottle, is grazie.last_img read more

No More Hassle to Register New Companies

first_imgCabinet has approved a comprehensive business registration form for new businesses. Cabinet has also given approval for legislation to be promulgated to give effect to the business registration form, and to repeal sections in various other pieces of legislation that require similar forms.Making the announcement at Wednesday’s (Feb. 6) Jamaica House press briefing, held at the Office of the Prime Minister, Minister with responsibility for Information, Senator the Hon. Sandrea Falconer, said the form will eliminate the current tedious process of completing multiple forms and visits to multiple government institutions.“Currently for the registration of businesses, it is also necessary to apply for the Taxpayer Registration Number (TRN), the National Insurance Scheme, National Housing Trust and HEART Trust registration, as well as to obtain a tax compliance certificate,” she explained.The new form will capture all the information required by the various departments, thereby improving the country’s ability to attract investment, and improve its ranking in the World Bank’s Doing Business Report, Minister Falconer outlined.Out of 38 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, Jamaica ranked 21st for 2012, under ‘Starting a Business’ indicator of the Doing Business report.last_img read more

Ohio State wrestling sets sights on second straight Big Ten championship

Credit: Leah McClure | Lantern PhotographerAfter a strong follow-up season to its national championship, the Ohio State wrestling team is set to travel to Iowa City, Iowa, looking to repeat as Big Ten champions.Last year, the Buckeyes picked up 120.0 points on their way to a share of the Big Ten crown. The conference championship was their first in 64 years.In addition, two Buckeyes were able to capture individual titles, with then-redshirt freshman Nathan Tomasello at 125 pounds and then-senior Logan Stieber at 141 pounds. OSU does not have Stieber this year, but it has a group with impressive accolades from this season.The Scarlet and Gray will present nine ranked wrestlers this weekend. Leading the way for the Buckeyes are the top-seeded Tomasello and redshirt freshman Micah Jordan. Tomasello has not lost a match all season and is currently boasting a 36-match win streak, which is the longest winning stint at 125 pounds.Jordan is one of three freshmen to earn a top seed for the tournament, along with Penn State’s Jason Nolf and Bo Nickal.OSU has a ranked wrestler in every weight class except for 149 pounds, because of the recovery of two-time All-American Hunter Stieber, who is sidelined because of injuries sustained last season and surgeries this offseason. It is likely redshirt freshman Cody Burcher will replace the redshirt senior in the lineup after he was injured against Wisconsin early this year.The Buckeyes have a tough road ahead of them, as both Iowa and Penn State have not lost a dual meet against a conference opponent all season. Penn State topped OSU earlier this season, knocking off the Buckeyes 24-14. Iowa shared the Big Ten championship with OSU last year.Even with the top-ranked opponents ahead for the Buckeyes, the team and coaching staff believe they are primed to shock the wrestling world once more. “You know who you are, you know how you train, and you just go be you,” OSU coach Tom Ryan said. “We’ve just found that the guys who get so caught up on winning and losing, fear becomes more real than to those who think otherwise.”The environment is always hostile for the teams coming into a conference foe’s home arena, but things are expected to be even more intense for the Buckeyes after the victory last year. Even with a target on their backs, the Scarlet and Gray are not shying away from the test.“A lot of eyes are on us because of winning it last year,” redshirt senior Johnni DiJulius said. “The eyes on us I don’t think change how we are going to wrestle. We are still the same wrestlers, and we still have the same potential.”DiJulius finished fourth at the tournament last season, and the Buckeyes are hoping this is the year he finally claims the elusive individual title to add to his impressive career.OSU freshman Myles Martin during a match against Wisconsin on Feb. 13 at St. John Arena. Credit: Leah McClure | Lantern PhotographerIt would be easy for the team to lose focus on the task at hand and concern itself with the pressure that lies ahead. Ryan said he knows exactly how to keep his athletes ready and at the top of their game.“We just talk about loving it,” Ryan said.That love Ryan is talking about could very well lead to the Buckeyes needing a bigger trophy case after this weekend.The tournament is set for Saturday and Sunday at Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City. Session I on the first day is set to begin at 11 a.m., while Session II is scheduled for 1 p.m.RematchesWith several wrestlers returning to the tournament from last season, there are a number of prospective rematches. The most notable of these is the potential match at 125 pounds, which would feature Tomasello versus Iowa’s Thomas Gilman. Last year, the two met in the tournament final.Another notable potential rematch features OSU redshirt sophomore Bo Jordan and Wisconsin’s Isaac Jordan. The opponents are first cousins and already faced each other this season, with Isaac Jordan winning it 6-4.NCAA championships nextAfter the conclusion of the Big Ten tournament, the Buckeyes will prepare to travel to New York City for the national championships. OSU will be looking for a repeat after winning its first team title in the program’s history.The NCAA tournament lasts from March 17 to 19 at Madison Square Garden. read more

BBC Womans Hour presenter suggests mens pay should have been cut ahead

BBC director-general Tony Hall has defended the salaries, saying the public backs high salaries for “big stars” because they are “talented and entertaining”. “If this is happening at the BBC, women all over Britain need to be aware.”BBC Woman’s Hour presenter @janegarvey1 says many women didn’t expect to have to ask for equal pay. It is “time consuming” and “stressful” #r4today https://t.co/TfdoqQnbiH pic.twitter.com/b9sTZGPKHj— BBC Radio 4 Today (@BBCr4today) July 2, 2019 The presenter of BBC Woman’s Hour has suggested her male colleagues should have had their salaries cut as the broadcaster prepares to release the details of its highest earners. Just weeks after it was announced over-75s would have to be means-tested for a free TV licence, Woman’s Hour’s Jane Garvey admitted people “might well take the view” that the BBC are pleading poverty whilst paying huge wages to its stars. She told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “Perhaps it would have been better to cut more male salaries rather than to up some female salaries. I absolutely get that.”The full list of those earning more than £150,000 will be made public at 11.30am on Tuesday, but Ms Garvey praised Claudia Winklemen, Zoe Ball and Vanessa Feltz  for making the top ten highest-earners. “I’d like to congratulate the three women who made it into the top 10, that’s 30 percent. Of course it would have been nice if that was 50 percent or maybe even more than that. Who knows, we might reach that state of Nirvana in my life.”These salaries are really eye-catching and frankly they are really eye-watering I’m sure to the majority of your listeners right now.” Ms Garvey, who earns £121,000-a-year for her role presenting Woman’s Hour, and said if she “could attract a massive audience through a popular music station then I could expect to earn rather more than I do”.  The Government has transferred responsibility to the BBC for the entitlement.The BBC has said that funding the universal scheme would mean the closure of BBC Two, BBC Four, the BBC News Channel, the BBC Scotland channel, Radio 5 Live, and several local radio stations.Last year, salaries were revealed in bands of £10,000 – this year they will be disclosed in bands of £5,000. Lord Hall, who has held the role at the corporation since 2013, said that it was spending “more than ever on content, but the amount we have spent proportionally on talent has come down”.In an article for the Huffington Post, he addressed the revelation of a gender pay gap in 2017 when only 34 women featured on the 96-strong list of employees earning more than £150,000.He said: “The BBC was rightly criticised for a lack of female representation when we first published details of our highest earning stars two years ago.”But the reality is that on pay we have come a long way to becoming a fairer organisation since then.”For our top stars, this year’s report will show that in 2019/20 we expect 45% of our highest earners to be women, and 55 percent to be men. Three years ago just 25 percent were women.”That is a huge amount of progress but there is still more to do. I want to get to 50:50.”The listing of high-earners will come after the BBC announced that free licences will be restricted to over-75s who claim Pension Credit from June 1 next year.Many have urged the Government to commit to the funding, saying it needs to honour the Conservative Party’s 2017 manifesto pledge.

Combination of MRI and mammography could improve breast cancer detection

first_imgTHE HEALTH INFORMATION and Quality Authority (HIQA) has advised that a combination of MRI scans and mammography would improve detection of breast cancer in women, particularly those at high risk.In a report by HIQA for the National Cancer Control Programme (NCCP), the authority said that a surveillance programme should be put in place to detect the cancer in women with familial or genetic risk factors.Surveillance, as opposed to screening, is a secondary preventative measure that aims to detect breast cancer at the earliest possible stage.In Ireland, mammography is the primary breast imaging method for screening asymptomatic women aged 50 to 64 years. It is also used for the investigation of symptomatic women and for the follow up of women with a previous history of breast cancer.The report said that that a mammogram, which is an X-ray of the breast, is determined in density by the relationship between fat and tissue and is less sensitive if breast tissue is dense.While MRI, which can generate multiple cross-sectional images of the breast that can be viewed in three dimensions is more sensitive, it is less specific than mammography for the target population and a combination of the two is recommended for those most at risk.Cancer detection rates“Combined MRI plus mammography improves sensitivity further, with a minimal decrease in specificity,” the report said.Studies show that cancer detection rates are higher when a combination is used, rather than mammography alone, according to the report.Unlike mammography, MRI does not involve exposure to ionising radiation. It has been reported that the sensitivity of MRI is not affected by breast tissue density to the same extent as mammography. However, hormonal factors such as menopausal status, use of hormone replacement therapy and phase of menstrual cycle have been shown to affect breast tissue enhancement.It has been recommended that breast MRI should only be offered in institutions that can also offer MRI-guided biopsy or that are in close contact with a site that can. However access to this procedure is currently limited to four of the eight regional centres in Ireland, all in Dublin.HIQA concluded that for women aged 30 to 49 who have been identified to be carriers of certain genetic mutations, using annual MRI scans is cost-effective. From ages 40 to 49, the addition of an annual mammogram may also be considered.In another small cohort of women who have a high probability of breast cancer before age 30, annual MRI surveillance from age 20 to 49 is the optimal strategy recommended by HIQA.The board of the authority has approved the report and it has been submitted to the NCCP for consideration.Read: Stronger breast cancer surveillance will reduce health service costs – report>Read: BreastCheck screened 4,500 more women in 2011 despite ‘challenging year’>last_img read more

Nvidia unveils the 23GHz Tegra 4i LTE mobile processor

first_imgIf you needed more proof that Nvidia was serious about the mobile market, look no further than the Tegra 4i, which the company has introduced today.The Tegra 4i is a fully-integrated solution for mobile phones, managing to combine a 28nm CPU, GPU, and an LTE modem on to a single chip. Not only that, but Nvidia claims the 4i is half the size of its rival Qualcomm’s new S800 chips.Until now Nvidia referred to the Tegra 4i internally as “Project Grey.” It forms the company’s first proper assault on the smartphone market and is certainly no slouch in the performance department.Just like other Tegra processors, the 4i has a 5-core (R4 Cortex-A9) CPU, and it operates at a maximum clock speed of 2.3GHz. In normal use it acts as a quad-core chip, with the fifth core used as a battery saver. Add to that 60 Custom GPU cores, 2GB DDR3 memory, and an integrated Nvidia i500 LTE modem. For comparison, the Qualcomm S800 is quite similar, using a 2.3GHz Krait 400 quad core CPU and the Adreno 320 GPU. Although the Tegra 4i is half its size.With 5x the GPU cores of Tegra 3, it’s not hard to see why smartphones using a Tegra 4i will be able to use displays capably of 1080p resolutions. The LTE modem is also backed up by a soft-modem allowing for over-the-air updates.Nvidia is supporting the production of Tegra 4i smartphones with a reference platform called Phoenix in a bid to give manufacturers a head start and get handsets to market more quickly.Phoenix also highlights the use of Nvidia’s Chimera Computational Photography Architecture, which aims to improve images and video captured using a Tegra 4 device significantly. Chimera will allow for always-on high-dynamic range (HDR) to be used on images and captured video by default. Not only will that enhance all captured content, it allows for easy capture of panoramic shots and tap-to-track for following individuals by locking on to their faces.Although introduced today, we won’t get a proper look at the Tegra 4i until the Mobile World Congress kicks off on February 25 in Barcelona.last_img read more

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood to hit the screens in India

first_imgOnce Upon a Time in… Hollywood posterTwitterQuentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In… Hollywood is all set to release in India on August 15! The film, which has received some astounding reviews at the Cannes Film Festival 2019, finally received a release date in India, thanks to Prabhas’ Saaho.On July 22, it was announced by the makers of Saaho that the film will hit the screens on August 30 instead of August 15. This left August 15 on the shoulders of Akshay Kumar’s Mission Mangal and John Abraham’s Batla House. Perhaps Sony Entertainment decided to take this opportunity and get August 15 as the release date? As per an official statement from the makers, it reads, “Sony Pictures Entertainment India’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood gets an Independence Day Release with Saaho shifting to 30th August. Directed by Quentin Tarantino and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie in lead roles, the film is based on the story of television star Rick Dalton and his longtime stunt double make their way around a changing industry that they hardly recognize anymore.”It is interesting how the filmmakers have chosen to use this date, despite knowing about the star power of Akshay Kumar and John Abraham at the Bollywood box office. The success of several recent Hollywood films such as Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Captain Marvel, Aladdin and The Lion King might have something to do with their confidence? So far the film has received rave reviews where some have even confirmed that it is a strong Oscar contender. Brad Pitt, Quentin Tarantino, Margot Robbie and Leonardo DiCaprio at the premiereTwitterBased on reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, a score of 93 per cent has been cumulated by the website. Various critics have called it an impressive film that is brilliantly crafted and has Tarantino written all over it! Just recently, a premiere was also conducted on Hollywood Boulevard where celebrities like Britney Spears, Chris Hemsworth, Maya Hawke, Vanessa Hudgens, Irina Shayk and more joined the cast of the film. Once Upon a Time In… Hollywood is based on the story of a TV star Rick Dalton and his longtime stunt double, who are trying to make their way into Hollywood at a time when they are not even recognised anymore.last_img read more

Russia identifies Saint Petersburg bomber

first_imgAkbarjon Djalilov, an alleged suspect in the April 3 blast in the Saint Petersburg metro. Photo: AFPRussian investigators Tuesday identified the bomber in the deadly Saint Petersburg metro blast as 22-year-old Akbarjon Djalilov, as Russia’s second city mourned the 14 people killed.The Investigative Committee said in a statement that Djalilov “carried out an explosion” in the carriage of a train travelling between two busy stations on Monday afternoon.Djalilov’s “genetic trace” was also found on a bag containing a second bomb left at another metro station and later defused, the statement said.Authorities in Central Asian Kyrgyzstan said that Djalilov was an ethnic Uzbek who was born in its southern city of Osh but was a citizen of Russia and had lived there since the age of 16.The remains of the bomber were found at the scene of the blast, but it was not clear if he is included in the official toll of the attack.Flags flew at half-mast in Russia’s second city and flowers and candles piled up at an impromptu memorial outside the metro station rocked by the attack, as authorities beefed up security on the busy underground transport system.The Kremlin said the bombing was “a challenge to every Russian”, including President Vladimir Putin.The bombing raised jitters ahead of the Confederations Cup football tournament in June, with the opening game and final set to be held in Saint Petersburg as Russia gears up towards hosting the World Cup next year.Commuters on the busy Saint Petersburg metro remained on edge after the system temporarily shut down Monday in the wake of the attack.“Everyone in the metro can only think of this,” said 45-year-old Svetlana Golubeva as she entered the underground.Resident Dmitry Leonov said there was a sense of shock that terror could strike the city as he picked his way through the candles and flower tributes lining the gates of the station.“Now we’re all under threat,” he said.‘Food for thought’Putin, who hails from Saint Petersburg, was holding a meeting near the city at the time of the bombing and later on Monday added his own floral tribute at the scene.“The fact that the act of terror was perpetrated at the moment that the head of state was in the city is food for thought,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Tuesday.A spokesman for Kyrgyzstan’s security services, Rakhat Sulaimanov, told AFP in Bishkek that authorities of the ex-Soviet republic were in contact with their Russian counterparts over the case.There has not been a claim of responsibility for the attack, which came after the Islamic State group called for attacks on Russia in retribution for its military intervention in Syria against the jihadists.Russia has long been battling an Islamist insurgency in its volatile Caucasus region and has suffered a string of bloody terror attacks over the years.Health Minister Veronika Skvortsova said the toll from the blast had climbed from 11 to 14 Tuesday as three people succumbed to their injuries, adding that 49 more people remained in hospital.Those hurt include citizens of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, as well as Russians from 13 different regions, according to the Saint Petersburg authorities.The chief of the Saint Petersburg metro, Vladimir Garyugin, said Tuesday that quick actions by staff prevented a much higher toll and that passengers had helped each other instead of panicking.The second bomb was an explosive device fashioned from a fire extinguisher and hidden in a bag, he said.“A metro employee quickly cordoned off the area and called in experts,” Garyugin said in televised remarks.‘Barbaric act’In the wake of the attack Putin spoke to a string of leaders around the globe—including holding only his second phone call with US President Donald Trump overnight.Trump offered Putin the “full support of the United States Government,” according to a White House statement.Putin also talked up cooperation in the fight against terrorism with leaders in Germany, France, Turkey and the king of Saudi Arabia.The attack in Saint Petersburg is the first in several years to hit a major city in Russia.In October 2015, a bomb attack claimed by IS downed a plane carrying holidaymakers back to Saint Petersburg from Egypt in October 2015. All 224 people onboard were killed.Russian ground transport has also been hit by extremists before, including in the Moscow metro and the Domodedovo airport, where a blast claimed by Islamic insurgents killed 37 people in 2011.In an apparently unrelated incident, two traffic policemen were killed overnight in the southern city of Astrakhan when unidentified assailants opened fire on them, the regional governor said, calling them “radical Islamists.”last_img read more

Gifster create gif screen captures on Windows

first_imgGifster, create gif screen captures on Windows by Martin Brinkmann on June 07, 2016 in Software – 3 commentsGifster is a free program for the Windows operating system that enables you to capture part of the screen and save the captured data as a gif animation file or a simple screenshot.Animated gifs are highly popular on the Internet, especially on entertainment sites but also user forums. On some sites, they appear to be posted by the thousands each day.The main appeal of the format is that gifs can be embedded on websites just like images.The situation has not changed all that much with the rise of HTML5 video despite the rise of services that turn animated gifs into videos, and the introduction of a new format on the popular image hosting site Imgur.While you can use video to gif converters for creating animated files, using dedicated programs for that usually gives you better control over the process.GifsterGifster is a new program that enables you to create gif captures on Windows. The program works similar to comparable solutions such as GifCam by displaying a frame on the screen on launch that you can resize and move around so that it covers the area that you want to capture.The part of the screen enclosed by the frame will be recorded when you hit the record button, and since you can move the frame on top of other windows, it is possible to record programs such as media players or web browsers.Gifster displays a second window on start that you use to customize the capturing. It offers controls to set the desired frames per second, and output size of the animated gif. The fps can be set to a value between 1 and 15, and the value determines how fluent animations are but also how large the output files will be.The site can be set to original, or a fraction of it. The setting has an effect on the output quality and file size as well.You may furthermore enable the capturing of the mouse cursor, which can be useful if you create demonstration gifs, and the capturing of a thumbnail.Last but not least, you may set a different output directory for the resulting captures.The capturing process works by clicking on the gif icon in the program interface, and clicking on it again to stop the capturing process and save the animated gif file to the output folder.You can open that output folder from within the program, but need a compatible program such as 7Gif or the majority of media players on the device to play the animated gif.Gifster supports the capturing of screenshots as well. When you click on the screenshot button it will save what’s underneath the frame to the output folder.Comparison to GifCamGifCam is probably the most popular direct animated gif capturing program for Windows currently. It supports features that Gifster does not support currently including the option to set custom fps recording values, a custom window size in the options, and recording to memory instead of the hard drive.GifCam does not support screenshots or the size option to record a smaller copy of the target area instead of its original size.Closing WordsGifster is an easy to use program for creating animated gifs on devices running Windows. While it works well out of the box, it would benefit from additional preferences that programs like GifCam offer.Summary12345 Author Rating5 based on 2 votes Software Name GifsterOperating System WindowsSoftware Category MultimediaLanding Page http://gifster.mentalstack.com/ Advertisementlast_img read more

Radiation dose during medical examination can be optimized and monitored by DOSE, one of the total quality monitoring solutions of Qaelum, a KULeuven spinoff.As the different organs of a human body are of variable dimensions and variable tissue composition, specifying organ radiation dose requires models that take all these variables into account.This agreement makes the Virtual Patient technology — a family of anatomically correct phantoms, advanced GPU-based Monte Carlo simulation and software-as-a-service (SaaS) programming techniques — available to Qaelum customers. It enables users to accurately compute doses to radiosensitive organs for a broad range of the patient population, including those outside the “average” body size, and pediatric patients from newborn through adolescence. The VirtualDoseCT calculation engine integrates seamlessly with the Qaelum software, providing improved information without extra effort on the part of the user.For more information: www.qaelum.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | Cardiac Imaging | July 30, 2019 VIDEO: The History of CT Calcium Scoring Arthur Agatston, M.D., clinical pro read more Technology | Quality Assurance (QA) | July 10, 2019 IBA Launches Monte Carlo Patient QA for Varian Halcyon at AAPM 2019 IBA announced the launch of the latest functionality of the SciMoCa Monte Carlo Patient QA solution at the 61st annual… read more News | Radiation Dose Management | July 09, 2019 Radcal Exhibits Accu-Gold Touch Systems at AAPM 2019 Radcal Corp. will be presenting the new Accu-Gold Touch platform, a multi-analyzer the company says is the latest in X-… read more News | Radiology Imaging | July 22, 2019 AHRA and Canon Medical Systems Support the 12th Annual Putting Patients First Program For the past twelve years, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. has partnered with read more Demand for ultrasound scans at U.S. outpatient centers could grow by double digits over the next five years, according to a speaker at AHRA 2019.
