Police fire tear gas on protesting students

The Police fired tear gas on protesting university students near the Parliament roundabout this evening.The protest resulted in traffic in the area coming to a standstill. The students walked from Rajagiriya to the Parliament roundabout and demanded that they meet the Education Minister.The protest took place with Parliament sessions underway so the Police blocked the road leading to Parliament. The students then pushed down the Police barricades forcing the Police to fire tear gas and water cannons to disperse the protest. (Colombo Gazette) read more

The Most Impressive Run to the Final Four And Its Not Kentuckys

Which team had the most impressive run to the Final Four?The question might seem like the sports equivalent of “Which of your children do you love the most?” Any team that wins four straight games in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament has a lot to be proud of. Papa Brackets thinks all the Final Four teams — Florida, Connecticut, Kentucky and Wisconsin — are very special.But conventional wisdom appears to hold Kentucky’s path in ever-so-slightly higher regard than the other schools’. The Wildcats defeated an unbeaten No. 1 seed (Wichita State) and both of last year’s finalists (Michigan and Louisville) en route to Arlington.Kentucky has been great. Despite entering the tournament as a No. 8 seed, it has a 19 percent chance of winning the NCAA championship, according to the FiveThirtyEight forecast model. That’s up from only a 2 percent chance before the tournament began.Still, Connecticut’s run has been slightly more special than Kentucky’s so far. And Wisconsin’s, even more so.The FiveThirtyEight model has a particular way of answering our question. It evaluates teams not in any absolute sense, but relative to its expectations. And it accounts not only for wins and losses (by definition, any team that makes to the Final Four has won at least four straight games), but also for margin of victory.To be more specific, the model calculates not only the win probability for each game, but also an implicit point spread. For example, it gives Florida a 69.9 percent chance of beating Connecticut on Saturday. That translates into Florida being 5.5 point favorites. The model has Wisconsin with a 58.2 percent chance of beating Kentucky, which would equate to the Badgers being favored by two points.How a team fares relative to this point spread affects how the model evaluates it going forward. Why? Tournament results are quite predictive of future tournament results: A team that is terrific in the early rounds often does well in later ones.Occasionally, a team can end up in worse shape despite winning its game. This happens when the model expects a blowout and the team wins by a smaller margin.A case in point is Florida in its opening-round game against Albany. The model had the Gators as 24-point favorites, but Florida won by 12 points (in fact, the game was a little closer than the scoreline implies).What about Florida’s three other wins? It was clear that the Gators were the favorite in each game, but they performed about in line with the model’s expectations — beating its point spread by six points against Pittsburgh and four points against UCLA, and underperforming it by two points in their win Saturday against Dayton. To be clear, the Gators have been great — and the model has them as the plurality favorite to win the tournament. But Florida was a great team going in. It has performed roughly as expected against a relatively easy draw.How about Kentucky? If viewed as a No. 8 seed, the Wildcats have been extremely impressive — not least on account of the quality of competition they’ve faced. But Kentucky was no typical No. 8. The Wildcats ranked first in the country in the preseason AP and USA Today Coaches polls, a factor for which the FiveThirtyEight model accounts. They took 10 losses in the regular season, but they faced a tough schedule; all but two of the losses, both to Florida, came by single digits.Kentucky was badly underseeded to begin with, in other words. The FiveThirtyEight model actually had Kentucky as slight favorites against Michigan, despite the Wildcats’ inferior seed. The Wildcats were underdogs against Louisville and Wichita State, but only modest ones, and both games were close. Kentucky outperformed the FiveThirtyEight point spread by two points against Michigan, four points against Wichita State and 10 points against Louisville.By this standard, both Connecticut and Wisconsin have done more to exceed expectations. The Huskies were the narrowest of favorites against Iowa State on Friday, in part because Madison Square Garden is a de facto home court for them. (Geographic distance from a team’s home campus is another factor that the FiveThirtyEight model accounts for; the author of this article went to the games at MSG for “research purposes” and can confirm that there was a lot of Huskies love there.) But Connecticut also won as underdogs against Michigan State and Villanova. The Villanova win, which came by 12 points, was relatively emphatic.The improvement in the model’s esteem for Wisconsin is partially the result of the Badgers’ upset of No. 1 seed Arizona on Saturday. But it has more to do with the their performance in earlier rounds. Wisconsin thrashed Baylor by 17 points Thursday, and the Badgers beat American University by 40 points in their opening game. On average, Wisconsin has outperformed the FiveThirtyEight point spread by 12 points, as compared with nine points for Connecticut and four for Kentucky.Evaluating teams by their margins of victory is unpopular; it may seem as heartless as rating your kids by their SAT scores. We’re fans of systems such as the Basketball Power Index (BPI) that account for the scoring margins throughout games and not just at the final buzzer. But margin of victory predicts future performance reasonably well — better than ratings based on wins and losses alone do. By that measure, Wisconsin heads to Texas with the most momentum.(Nerd alert: The point spread can be derived through the formula NORMSINV(WINPROB)*10.36 in Microsoft Excel, where WINPROB is a team’s probability of winning.) read more

AMIRA International and Sustain our Africa SoA to cohost a congress Sustainable

first_imgThere is a realisation amongst many mining companies that to ensure a sustainable business into the 21st century and develop a ‘thrivable future’ requires a shift from business as usual to innovative out of the box thinking. Building on the outcomes of the 2012 AMIRA International workshop, Sustainable Mining In South Africa, AMIRA International in collaboration with Sustain our Africa (SoA – www.sustainourafrica.org) will be co-hosting a congress on Sustainable Mining in Africa. The congress will be held in Cape Town under the SoA Summit theme FUTURE AFRICA. The event is in collaboration with the World Capital Design 2014 program (WDC – www.wdccapetown2014.com). Cape Town was awarded the World Design Capital 2014, a prestigious biennial designation by the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design.The SoA Summit is Africa’s first integrated sustainability summit focussing on designing tools for change. In a world first for the continent, thought leaders from across the globe will gather for the Summit, Expo and Festival from October 26, 2014 to November 2 to explore the question: Can Africa deliver enough for all, forever?Driving sustainable development performance is a critical objective, with most major companies already pursuing comprehensive sustainability policies and programs. While advances are being made through better implementation of known technologies, achieving more ambitious and sustainable targets will require a combination of product, process and business innovation. Individual companies can make significant strides on their own, however as an industry, developing more sustainable solutions to common challenges for mining in the future and the shared benefits that it will bring to all stakeholders can be more effectively realised through collaboration.The Sustainable Mining in Africa congress will expand on the key themes of AMIRA International’s 2012 workshop and could include the following industry issues:Innovation and design towards creating a Net Positive impact (NPI)Global responsible stewardshipEnvisaged future including social-economic activities beyond the life of a mineRecycling and upcycling as a resource, i.e. value from waste and ZERO WASTESustainability and transformative leadershipBusiness Model Innovation for Sustainability – Business case and license to operateBalanced approach between human capital and automation.The key message for this Congress is embodied in the following extract from Professor Mark Swilling & Eve Annecke, ‘Just Transitions: Explorations of Sustainability in an Unfair World’ (International Environmental Agreements: Politics, Law and Economics September 2013, Volume 13, Issue 3, pp 405-408).“Current economic growth strategies are rapidly depleting the natural resources and ecosystem services that we depend on. As many developing countries strive to eradicate poverty via economic growth, they are all encountering the consequences of global warming and dwindling levels of cheap oil, productive soils, metals, clean water supplies and forest products.If the fast-developing large-scale countries (China, India, Brazil) and small-scale countries (South Africa, Mexico, Venezuela, Poland) want to develop in the same way and to the same level as currently developed economies, they will simply be unable to find the natural resources they require to make this happen. For these developing countries, very different solutions are required.”last_img read more

Microsoft unveils Surface pricing and first advert

first_imgWindows 8 devices of every size and description have been cropping up all over. Microsoft, with the help of its partners, has prepared quite a hardware launch to go alongside the release of Windows 8. One device, which we’ve known about for some time, has lacked the most important component for deciding whether or not to buy it. It’s difficult to compare the other devices out there to the Microsoft Surface tablet PC, when we have no idea how much it will cost. Today, Microsoft has opened the pre-order page on their site and prepared the world for the release of the Surface RT.Pricing for the 32GB Surface RT starts at $499 without the soft keyboard that is almost always shown with the device in promotional material. The Surface RT is priced the same as the 16GB iPad, though there’s currently no 16GB Surface RT to offer at a cheaper price point. The 32GB Surface RT with the Touch Cover comes in at $699, which is about the same price as the 32GB iPad with a good keyboard. The pricing here is only for the Surface RT, though the pre-order page makes it clear that orders will arrive on Oct 26.The Touch Cover makes a $100 difference in pricing when ordering it with the device, but $119 if ordering it separately. The tactile Surface Type cover is $129, and there are no pre-made packages on theMicrosoft website that includes it as an option.Microsoft has yet to make any statements regarding the pricing for Surface Pro devices, and there are no pre-order options for the Pro versions of Surface. Microsoft has also released the first Surface commercial, which focuses very heavily on how quick and easy it is to connect a Surface Cover to the device, and switch from having a tablet to having something that passes for a laptop.

Quand les mathématiques se penchent sur lexistence du Père Noël

first_imgQuand les mathématiques se penchent sur l’existence du Père NoëlPeut-être que certains enfants seraient tentés de ne pas croire au Père Noël. En tout cas, s’il existe, des mathématiciens ont montré combien il aurait la vie dure, ce vieil homme barbu.A quatre jours du jour fatidique, voilà une étude qui a de quoi relancer la magie de Noël. Pour mettre à l’épreuve les exploits réalisés par le Père Noël, des mathématiciens se sont livrés à une série de petits calculs, dont les résultats donnent à ce personnage tant aimé des enfants un statut de super héros ! Si on compte qu’il y a 378 millions d’enfants dans le monde qui attendent avec impatience le 25 décembre (environ deux milliards de personnes ayant moins de 18 ans dans le monde moins tous ceux qui ne sont pas chrétiens ou occidentaux), avec en moyenne 3,5 enfants par foyer dans le monde, on arrive à 91,8 millions de maisons. C’est là le nombre de descentes à réaliser pour le Père Noël, en supposant qu’il y ait bien au moins un enfant sage dans chaque maison… Or, pour bien faire cela, Santa Claus dispose de 31 heures en supposant qu’il voyage d’est en ouest et que son traineau suit les fuseaux horaires. Il doit donc faire 822,6 descentes de cheminée par seconde, ce qui lui laisse approximativement plus de 0,001 seconde pour distribuer les cadeaux dans chaque maison, rapporte 20minutes.fr. Pas vraiment le temps de s’arrêter pour grignoter. Mais le Père Noël n’est pas le seul à être éprouvé et à avoir besoin d’un an pour s’en remettre. Les rennes ont eux aussi fort à faire ! Si on estime que les maisons sont éloignées les unes des autres de 1,2 km en moyenne, le voyage total est de plus de 120 millions de km. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?En 31 heures, cela suppose une vitesse moyenne supérieure à 3,8 millions de km/h, soit 1.050 km par seconde environ. Les rennes devraient donc galoper en l’air à Mach 3.000 ! Un traineau de plus de 300.000 tonnes Pour autant, n’oublions pas que le Père Noël n’est pas seul à bord du traineau, il emporte avec lui tous les cadeaux nécessaires ce qui représente un poids non négligeable. En estimant que les cadeaux de chaque enfant pèsent 900 grammes, la charge totale emmenée serait de 321.300 tonnes. Un renne normal ne pouvant tracter plus de 136 kg (ce qui n’est déjà pas si mal), il faudrait donc un attelage de quelque 2.360.000 rennes normaux, indique 20minutes.fr. Mais on le sait bien, les rennes du Père Noël sont des rennes magiques… A supposer qu’ils puissent transporter dix fois plus que les autres, ils ne seraient plus que 236.000 dans l’attelage.Reste la résistance dans l’air qui ne peut être éludée. En effet, 321.300 tonnes voyageant à 3,8 millions de km/h nous donne une résistance de 14,3 milliards de trilliards de joules d’énergie pour les rennes placés en tête de cortège. Bref, là encore, à moins de poils magiques ignifugés,  les pauvres animaux seraient réduits en poussière et l’ensemble de l’attelage serait consumé en 0,00426ème de seconde. Conclusion : si le Père Noël existe, il est vraiment vraiment magique. Le 21 décembre 2012 à 15:08 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Attorney for abuse survivors calls for probe of San Diego Diocese

San Diego attorney Irwin Zalkin held a news conference on Thursday, accusing the diocese of trying to hide information about abusive priests.In August, the Pennsylvania Attorney General released a grand jury report that found more than 1,000 children in six Pennsylvania dioceses had been victimized by priests in cases dating back to 1947.Following the disclosures in Pennsylvania, the San Diego Diocese in September released a list of 51 priests in the San Diego and San Bernardino dioceses who had been credibly accused of abuse. However, Zalkin told reporters that he knows of at least 10 to 12 priests who abused children but are not included on the list.”We have clients that have been calling us since this list has come out and have been telling us, ‘Hey, my priest is not on this list.’ This is what happened to me,” Zalkin said.The attorney who negotiated a nearly $200 million settlement on behalf of 144 abuse survivors in 2007 believes the San Diego Diocese destroyed past records of predator priests and is continuing to cover up the broader scope of the clergy abuse scandal. He is calling on the California Attorney General to launch an investigation similar to the one in Pennsylvania to look into the internal records of the San Diego Diocese.He said an independent investigation is needed “because you cannot trust this diocese to be transparent.” Zalkin said the Church has decided to place more importance on protecting its reputation. “My view is that they are more concerned about protecting their “brand” than they really are about the protection of children and making it right.”The San Diego Diocese released a statement that read in part, “All accusations of priest misconduct are taken seriously. If anyone believes the published list is incomplete, they may contact the Diocese at (858) 490-8353.” Posted: November 9, 2018last_img read more

After CCOs Exit SpiceJet CEO Neil Mills Resigns

first_imgA couple of months after the exit of SpiceJet chief commercial officer CCO Harish Moideen Kutty, the airline’s chief executive officer Niel Mills has resigned, according to reports.Mills put in his papers before the expiry of his contract, which ends in 2015. He was said to have taken the decision last week while on a visit to Chennai to meet Kalanithi Maran, promoter of SpiceJet’s parent company Sun Group. However, no formal announcement has been made about his resignation.  “Mills is a serious professional. He wasn’t too happy here and resigned some days ago. He is still coming to office regularly, is fully involved in running the airline and will continue to do so till he is relieved,” Times of India quoted a source as saying.A spokeswoman of the airline refuted the reports of Mills’ resignation saying, “It is still a rumour. We do not comment on market rumours or speculation.”Mills put in his papers just two weeks ahead of the board’s move to finalise the airline’s earning reports for the June quarter. His abrupt resignation comes soon after the airline faced a heavy loss of ₹186 crore in the March quarter. The low-cost carrier reported losses of ₹606 crore and ₹191 crore for 2011-12 and 2012-13, respectively.According to reports, Mills may have quit the company due to the airline’s poor performance and differences between its promoters and board member Natrajhen, whose appointement to the post of managing direction in September topped Mills’ own position. But sources asserted that Mills’ exit has nothing to do with Natrajhen’s promotion and the airline’s performance as the entire aviation industry was going through a tough time.Mills was an integral part of SpiceJet after he was appointed directly by Sun Group MD Kalanithi Maran in 2010 after the latter bought a majority stake in the airline from London-based businessman Bhulo Kansagra. He replaced Sanjay Aggarwal, who left the company to join the debt-ridden and stranded Kingfisher Airlines.Before SpiceJet, Mills was working with FlyDubai. His tenure in SpiceJet brought won him several accolades and profit to the company. However, he faced backlash from the aviation regulatory for the fire sale of 10 lakh tickets which was announced in January this year and was eventually blamed by aviation analysts for the airline’s losses.last_img read more

New TB drug inaccessible to many South Africans

first_img*Article supplied by Doctors Without Borders (MSF). Follow them on Facebook and Twitter for more groundbreaking initiatives. WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite Only 3,000 patients worldwide have been treated with bedaquiline, and fewer than 200 with delamanid – only 2% of the 150,000 people around the world that could benefit.“MSF is treating some of the lucky few people in South Africa — and in fact the whole world – to receive access to strengthened treatment regimens including bedaquiline and delamanid,” said Dr. Jennifer Hughes of MSF in South Africa. “South Africa’s Department of Health has been a leader in accessing new DR-TB drugs, with over 1,750 patients receiving bedaquiline nationally since 2013.Ubuntu clinic (integrated TB/HIV) in Khayelitsha.Patients receiving bedaquiline in South Africa had 77% ‘culture conversion’ rates from TB-positive to negative, which is a promising sign that their treatment may ultimately be successful. Additional information from South Africa showed similar safety and efficacy even when bedaquiline was given together with antiretroviral therapy (ART) to TB/HIV co-infected people, another sign that this drug has the potential to transform DR-TB treatment in coming years.Delamanid, however, is not yet as widely available in South Africa.“TB is curable, yet it is now the infectious disease that kills the most people in the world,” said Dr. Grania Brigden, TB Advisor for the MSF Access Campaign. “We desperately need treatment that is easier for people to tolerate, that cures more people, and that is more available and affordable, otherwise it’s just deadly business as usual.”center_img Doctors Without Borders (MSF), other treatment providers in South Africa and globally have found that the first new drugs in half a century to be developed for treating drug-resistant tuberculosis (DR-TB) are offering new hope to patients — but significant challenges remain to improve availability and affordability of these treatments.Current treatment regimens for DR-TB involve thousands of pills taken over two years, which can have devastating side effects and ultimately only work for 50% of people with multidrug-resistant (MDR) TB and 26% of people with extensively drug-resistant (XDR) TB.Access to new drugs bedaquiline and delamanid along with ‘repurposed’ drugs — not specifically developed for TB but that have shown efficacy in treating TB — could be a significant step toward finding a shorter, more tolerable DR-TB regimen in the future.This is good news for South Africa, which has one of the highest burdens of multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) in the world, with 30,000 new cases each year, over 18,000 people diagnosed and over 11,500 put on treatment in 2014.last_img read more

Why ultrasounds may give mothers with Zika a false sense of security

first_imgRelated posts:Zika crisis to get ‘worse before it gets better,’ WHO says Vaccine against dengue virus is 100 percent effective: study Costa Rica ambassador in US warns of Zika vulnerabilities Zika: Tragedy or Opportunity? Facebook Comments Zika successfully hid through nearly half of a Washington D.C. woman’s pregnancy, its damage to her fetus not showing despite a series of early ultrasounds. But suddenly at 19 weeks, another scan revealed significant abnormalities, and a more sophisticated test one week later identified even greater damage in her baby’s brain. In early February, the woman terminated the pregnancy.The report, published Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine, provides troubling new information about the capacity of the virus to infect a fetus and cause serious harm. The case also indicates that Zika may remain in the blood for a long time: The 33-year-old woman still tested positive for Zika 10 weeks after she likely was infected during a trip to Guatemala — far beyond what scientists have thought is the case.“This helps put more pieces together in the puzzle because we know so little about how this virus acts and when and how long it stays in your blood after you have symptoms,” said Laura Riley, vice chair of obstetrics and gynecology at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, who was not part of the study. Even though the study only involves one patient, “it’s very important because she was followed so closely and there is so much detailed information.”While the case offers important details to researchers and obstetricians-gynecologists counseling pregnant women who may have been exposed to the virus, “we’re going to need to study this with a large number of patients to provide guidance for women,” said Catherine Spong, acting director for the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.The woman and her husband traveled on vacation to Mexico, Guatemala and Belize in late November when she was 11 weeks pregnant. The couple told researchers they had been bitten by mosquitoes during their trip, particularly in Guatemala. After returning home, the woman developed eye and muscle pain, fever and a rash. A series of ultrasounds that began one week after her symptoms subsided — at 13, 16 and 17 weeks of pregnancy — showed none of the characteristic problems linked to Zika. The most prominent in utero are an abnormally small head and brain calcifications, bright, white spots that indicate something is amiss. Both are key to a diagnosis of a rare condition called microcephaly.Yet on the ultrasound at 19 weeks, significant brain abnormalities appeared: The baby’s brain was small and contained an unusual amount of fluid. The cerebral cortex, its outer layer, was very thin. By the 20th week, a fetal MRI showed severe atrophy, especially in the front and top brain areas that are involved in decision-making, learning, vision, hearing, touch and taste. The fetus did not meet the threshold to be diagnosed with microcephaly.In the initial ultrasounds, “they only looked at the size of the head and looked for brain calcifications to make sure she didn’t have microcephaly and reassured her that everything looks okay,” said Rita Driggers, one of the study’s lead authors and medical director of Sibley Memorial Hospital’s maternal-fetal medicine division. Driggers, an assistant professor of gynecology and obstetrics at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, was involved in the patient’s care.The takeaway for clinicians, she and others said, is to make sure during ultrasounds to look for other brain changes beyond microcephaly and intracranial calcifications.Adre du Plessis, director of Children’s National Health System’s Fetal Medicine Institute and another study author, said Wednesday that the lack of those markers in the earlier ultrasounds may have led to “false reassurances” for the mother. What’s more, he said, such delayed diagnosis of brain infection in the fetus may put women who’d opt to terminate a pregnancy “outside the legal limits” of an abortion.Forty-three U.S. states prohibit abortions after a specified point in pregnancy — most often the point of fetal viability — except when necessary to protect the woman’s life or health.Researchers said they are not recommending that all pregnant women infected with Zika uniformly seek out fetal MRIs, which are expensive and not readily available in many of the countries in Central and South America that have been hardest hit by the Zika epidemic. In the United States, the technology is available at most major medical centers.It’s possible that researchers might be able to develop other markers to predict whether babies will become infected and develop abnormalities, du Plessis said.Recommended: No new cases of Zika in Costa Rica in recent weeksThe study also provides new information about how long the virus persists in the blood of an infected person. The common thinking has been that the virus is only present for seven days to about two weeks at the outer limits. But this patient had virus in her blood from the time she became infected, when she was about 11 weeks pregnant, up until the time of her abortion, at 21 weeks.“That’s a very novel finding and important for future study,” said Roberta DeBiasi, Children’s chief of infectious disease division and another study author.It’s possible that the woman’s persistent infection was the result of the virus replicating in the fetus or placenta, the researchers said.Researchers also found “significant” cell death of neurons in the part of the brain that plays a role in sight, hearing and language, researchers said.© 2016, The Washington Postlast_img read more
