What an MLB source said about the Dbacks trade h

first_img What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke “The respect you see from other guys seeing you out there,that was great,” Rhodes said. “Once the game started I wason the sidelines and I just couldn’t take it. So I endedup leaving and watching the game on TV.”Rhodes left, he said, because watching from the sidelineleft him upset.“It gives you a whole different perspective of why peopleget upset watching the games,” Rhodes said of watching.“When you’re in the middle of it you’re trying your bestso you really don’t see it, but when you’re on the outsidelooking in and you’re not playing, you have a totallydifferent perspective.”Rhodes said it’s frustrating seeing someone not be in theright spot, something that has been an issue for theCardinals defense this season. A football player wants to be on the field. Not being out there, especially when the team isstruggling, is tough to deal with.Thus is the plight of Cardinals safety Kerry Rhodes, whowatched a game from the sidelines for the first timeSunday.“It was very, very weird,” Rhodes told Arizona Sports620’s Doug and Wolf. “It was pretty difficult on Sunday.”Rhodes said he arrived at the stadium early and watchedwarmups, and players from both teams approached him andtold him to hurry up and get back on the field becausehe’s one of the best players in the league.

Aloft Hotel Adds SiriEquipped Rooms

first_img Enroll Now for $5 August 29, 2016 David Murphy Fireside Chat | July 25: Three Surprising Ways to Build Your Brand Aloft Hotel Adds Siri-Equipped Rooms –shares Next Article Add to Queuecenter_img This story originally appeared on PCMag Hey Siri, fluff my pillow and make sure I’m awake at 7 a.m. for my workout. And make me a coffee at 6:55 a.m. so I can wake up to that sweet aroma, slam it and run out the door. Now, tell me a bedtime story.That’s an ambitious list of tasks for Apple’s digital assistant, but some vacationers will soon get a chance to have Siri serve as their digital butler if they’re staying at either the Santa Clara or Boston Seaport Aloft Hotel. If you’re in one of the hotel’s new Siri-equipped rooms, you’ll get an iPad to play around with that comes with a customized app that lets you control many of the room’s options by yelling “Hey Siri.” “Forget the phrase ‘at the touch of your fingertips.’ Today’s early adopter, hyper-connected global traveler wants a level of personalization unlike ever before, and that means being able to control their hotel experience with the sound of their voice. We’re thrilled to be the first hotel brand to bring voice activation to our guests in this way, using Siri to control room temperature, lighting and more during their stay,” said Brian McGuinness, global brand leader at Aloft Hotels, in a statement.Personalized welcome screens on the aforementioned iPads will help guests familiarize themselves with what they can (and can’t) do by yelling at Siri. It’ll also be the way in which each guest (or one guest, speaking on behalf of the room’s occupants) gets the iPad to recognize his or her voice for “Hey Siri” commands.Once set up, guests will be able to use Siri to control their room’s temperature (thanks to the room’s HomeKit-enabled Ecobee thermostat), adjust the room’s Philips Hue lighting, turn music on and off (so long as guests sign into their iTunes accounts on the iPad first) and figure out various attractions to visit around their particular hotel. It stands to reason that guests will also be able to use Siri for most of the conventional requests they might normally use Siri for: setting alarms, figuring out complex mathematics and other queries like that.Aloft will reset the iPads upon checkout.

New study estimates prevalence and risk factors for misuse of prescribed opioids

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Feb 6 2019A new Pharmacoepidemiology & Drug Safety study estimates the prevalence and risk factors for self-reported misuse of prescribed opioids in the general adult population.Based on data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, the study’s investigators estimate that of more than 89 million US adults who used prescription opioids every year, close to 3.9 million (4.4 percent) reported misusing the prescribed medications. Prescribed opioid misuse was most strongly associated with co-occurring misuse of opioids without a prescription, misuse of benzodiazepines, other drug use disorders, history of illegal activity, and psychological distress.”While most people who are prescribed opioid medications use them as prescribed, a minority tend to use a higher dose, use the medication more frequently, or for a longer time than prescribed,” said lead author Dr. Ramin Mojtabai, of Johns Hopkins University. “Prescribers should be especially vigilant about the possibility of misuse among patients who are prescribed more potent opioid medications and prescribed these medications for long-term use.”Source: https://newsroom.wiley.com/press-release/pharmacoepidemiology-and-drug-safety/study-estimates-misuse-prescribed-opioids-united-last_img read more

KNAUER celebrates diversity

first_imgLunch of diversity: Getting seated by lotteryDiversity enriches our lives, both privately and at work. Experience has shown that difficult and new questions, such as frequently encountered in the technical and research field, can be solved more quickly by teams with a diverse background of experience than by homogeneous teams. In the company’s projects, teams and departments work closely together, but what about the people outside the project environment?Related StoriesKNAUER introduces new Sepapure FPLC columns and media for protein purification tasksHigh Quality Purification of Proteins Through Liquid ChromatographyKNAUER joins UN Global Compact initiative for responsible corporate governanceIn a company with 140 employees, everyone knows everyone – one might think. In practice, however, there are colleagues who know each other little more than by sight.That’s why this diversity event at KNAUER was intended to be an occasion to expand the familiar circles. The company had come up with a lunch to get to know each other. The colleagues enjoyed a delicious international menu at a common table. The special thing about it was that the seating arrangement was determined by each employee pulling the name of the next person sitting next to him out of a lottery drum and that person the name of the next person until all colleagues had taken their seats at the table.The random distribution seating worked perfectly: developer sat next to marketing colleague, saleswoman next to laboratory assistant. The food obviously tasted very good and fears that it might be very silent and stiff were not confirmed. On the contrary, the mood was very relaxed. KNAUER, with employees from 20 countries, sees itself as a tolerant and open company. The company joined the business initiative “Diversity Charter” in May 2017, which aims, among other things, to create a work environment that is free of prejudice but also outward-looking and recognizing the diversity of the society for mutual benefit. I am delighted that our getting-to-know-lunch has been so well received by the employees and that people who otherwise have little to do with each other have actually got to know each other better. I hope that the campaign will have a little after-effect and that the colleagues’ circles will form a little more randomly during the normal lunch break.”Katharina Pohl, Human Resources Officer May 30 2019On May 28, 2019 the “German Diversity Day” took place for the seventh time and on this occasion the Berlin-based laboratory instrument manufacturer KNAUER organized a special campaign for the employees.

Rutgersled study sheds light on the origins of metabolism

first_imgWe are closer to understanding the inner workings of the ancient cell that was the ancestor of all life on earth – and, therefore, to understanding how life arose in the first place, and the pathways life might have taken on other worlds.”Lead author Andrew Mutter, a post-doctoral associate at Rutgers University’s Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Jul 2 2019A Rutgers-led study sheds light on one of the most enduring mysteries of science: How did metabolism – the process by which life powers itself, by converting energy from food into movement and growth – begin?To answer that question, the researchers reverse-engineered a primordial protein and inserted it into a living bacterium, where it successfully powered the cell’s metabolism, growth and reproduction, according to the study in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Related StoriesALS mobility and survival could be improved by increasing glucoseHighlights and key takeaways from the 2019 Boston Bacterial Meeting (BBM)Using NMR to Study Protein Structure, Dynamics and MechanismsThe discovery also has implications for the field of synthetic biology, which harnesses the metabolism of microbes to produce industrial chemicals; and bioelectronics, which seeks to apply cells’ natural circuitry for energy storage and other functions.The researchers looked at a class of proteins called ferredoxins, which support metabolism in bacteria, plants and animals by moving electricity through cells. These proteins have different, complex forms in today’s living things, but researchers speculate they all arose from a much simpler protein that was present in the ancestor of all life.Similar to the ways biologists compare modern birds and reptiles to draw conclusions about their shared ancestor, the researchers compared ferredoxin molecules that are present in living things and using computer models, designed ancestral forms that may have existed at an earlier stage in the evolution of life.That research led to their creation of a basic version of the protein – a simple ferredoxin that is able to conduct electricity within a cell and that, over eons of evolution, could have given rise to the many kinds that exist today.Then, to prove their model of the ancient protein could actually support life, they inserted it into a living cell. They took the genome of E. coli bacteria, removed the gene it uses to create ferredoxin in nature, and spliced in a gene for their reverse-engineered protein. The modified E. coli colony survived and grew although more slowly than normal.Study co-author Vikas Nanda, a professor at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and Center for Advanced Biotechnology and Medicine, said the discovery’s implications for synthetic biology and bioelectronics come from ferredoxins’ role in the circuitry of life.”These proteins channel electricity as part of a cell’s internal circuitry. The ferredoxins that appear in modern life are complex – but we’ve created a stripped-down version that still supports life. Future experiments could build on this simple version for possible industrial applications,” Nanda said. Source:Rutgers UniversityJournal reference:Mutter, A.C et al.

The growing gap between physical and social technologies

first_img Citation: The growing gap between physical and social technologies (2018, August 1) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-08-gap-physical-social-technologies.html Energy-intensive Bitcoin transactions pose a growing environmental threat The word “technology,” from the Greek techne, usually evokes physical technologies like artificial intelligence, swarm robots, and the like. But there’s an older meaning. By Jacob Bigelow’s 1829 definition, technology can describe a process that benefits society. In that sense, social institutions, like governments and healthcare systems, can be seen, and studied, as technologies. Provided by Santa Fe Institute Explore further This summer at the Santa Fe Institute, a small cadre of scientists and entrepreneurs will convene a two-week long working group to address “the growing gap between our physical and social technologies.” By bringing together an eclectic forum of engineers, writers, scientists, historians, lawyers, futurists, economists, philosophers, founders, philanthropists, and policymakers, the organizers aim to confront the apparent lag between our collective social technologies (e.g., political, economic, and cultural systems) and the nascent realities being synthesized by our physical technologies.Labor efficiency, speed of transportation, and human communication have advanced in step with physical technologies. These advancements have simultaneously exposed an unmet need for social technologies whose creation is outside the scope of the physical-technological toolkit. Thus, the working group, which will run July 30–Aug. 10, will examine the two technological domains from a multidisciplinary, non-dogmatic framework in pursuit of novel solutions to these complex problems.”I have had my eyes on the approaching tsunami of change for a long time,” says the working group’s lead organizer, External Professor Steen Rasmussen (University of Southern Denmark). “It is difficult to assemble the needed diverse teams so we together can understand the complex issues as well as develop and explore potential solutions.”Those solutions could include blockchain-style, citizen-centric ownership of private data, for example, to address the privacy concerns that have been exacerbated by digital technology. Developing a new school of economic thought that looks beyond the capital/labor dichotomy might be another social technology that could ameliorate the effects of technological automation on economic inequality.Rasmussen says the transformations that could result from such solutions would change “our economy, our institutions and what it means to be human.” This document is subject to copyright.

TMobile delays 5G network launch until the second half of the year

first_imgT-Mobile users may need to wait a little longer for 5G than those on AT&T, Sprint or Verizon. Explore further In an interview with CNET Monday, T-Mobile chief technology officer Neville Ray said that his company will be pushing off the launch of its 5G network to the second half of 2019 as it waits for a phone that is better equipped to work with the company’s lower band wireless spectrum.At the industry MWC tradeshow in Barcelona last year the company said it was working to build out its network across 30 cities with a plan to start shipping its first 5G devices in “early 2019.”New York, Los Angeles, Dallas and Las Vegas were previously announced to be getting the new network first.The news of the T-Mobile delay comes on the same day that Sprint announced it would be turning on its own 5G network in Chicago, Kansas City, Atlanta and Dallas in May, with five other cities still on track to have 5G during the first half of 2019.T-Mobile and Sprint are currently in the process of trying to complete a $26 billion merger. Each carrier has stressed to lawmakers that it needs the other in order to speedily deploy 5G nationwide.T-Mobile did not immediately respond to a USA TODAY request for comment on the delay.By pushing off its launch, T-Mobile falls further behind rivals AT&T and Verizon in the mobile 5G race. AT&T launched its 5G network in 12 cities late last year, while Verizon last week announced that it will be the first carrier to offer Samsung’s new Galaxy S10 5G in the first half of the year.The three other carriers have announced that they too, will offer Samsung’s 5G Galaxy S10 this year, with T-Mobile on its website stating that it will offer the phone “this summer.” This document is subject to copyright.

Germany is EUs Eldorado for cash machine raiders

first_img‘Audi gang’Germany’s geographical position at the centre of Europe and its dense web of motorways, much of which is not covered by a speed limit, means that criminals can more easily shake off police than elsewhere—driving German-made sports cars, naturally.One particularly notorious group has plagued the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, which shares a border with the Netherlands and where the largest number of bank raids are carried out. The press dubbed the group the “Audi gang” because their getaway car of choice tended to be rented or stolen vehicles of that particular high-end brand. Three members of the gang were hauled before a court in state capital Duesseldorf in June, accused of stealing more than 600,000 euros and causing 100,000 euros of damage in 2017-18.Last year, a total of 128 suspects were arrested over cash machine robberies, most of them from the Netherlands, the BKA said. Europol warns banks ATM cyber attacks on the rise This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Some 369 ATMs in Germany were blown up by criminal gangs last year, a 38-percent increase over 2017 Explore further Fighting backWhile cash machine attacks have mounted in Germany, the number reported in the other 10 nations studied by EAST, including France and Britain, fell 15 percent to just under 700 altogether.Such data highlight how banks can work together with government support to reduce the incentives to blast open ATMs.In the Netherlands, lenders created the “Geldmaat” network, agreeing to hold less cash in each machine but refill them more regularly in order to reduce the potential payoff for any one raid.France ordered banks in 2015 to fit ATMs with systems that stain banknotes if they are forcibly removed.Europol credits the move with sharply reducing the number of attacks in France, which fell from 304 in 2013 to just 58 in 2018, according to National Gendarmerie figures.Even in Germany, criminals fail to secure any banknotes in 60 percent of cases thanks to well-protected machines, the BKA said.But successful attacks can be highly lucrative.On average, 130,000 euros are stolen in each German crime, compared with just 17,100 euros across the 11 countries surveyed by EAST. Even so, Germany accounts for more than one-third of the attacks recorded across 11 large European countries surveyed by the European Association for Secure Transactions (EAST).The nation’s 58,000 machines make up just 16 percent of the installed base across all the countries in the study. Germany accounts for more than one-third of the attacks across 11 European countries Some 369 ATMs were destroyed by explosions last year, a 38-percent increase compared with 2017 and 10 times more than a decade ago, according to data from the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA).Most of the crimes follow the same pattern, with perpetrators using an electric detonator or fuse to set off a mixture of gases pumped into the machine—or more rarely a solid explosive.Carried out late at night, perpetrators often plan the attacks “months in advance”, according to Europol.The crimes can be risky, with one man killed in October 2018 while attempting a similar attack on a ticket machine at a local train station in Halle, southwest of Berlin.But successful attacks on ATMs are highly lucrative.In May, raiders who blasted open a Commerzbank cash machine in Eschborn, near Frankfurt, made off with 190,000 euros ($215,000).The police managed to grab one suspect who returned to the scene of the crime in the small hours, but his accomplices and the cash have disappeared without trace, Frankfurt prosecutor Christian Hartwig said.Many cash machine crackers come “from the Netherlands and central Europe” to Germany simply because of its favourable geography, he added. “Search for black Audi after attempt to blow up a cash machine”, “Neighbours hear loud bang, perpetrators flee in Audi”, “Car chase through three federal states”: headlines like these have become commonplace around Germany as raids on cash machines have increased in number. © 2019 AFP While cash machine blow-ups have mounted in Germany, the number reported in other countries has fallen Citation: Germany is EU’s Eldorado for cash machine raiders (2019, July 3) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-07-germany-eu-eldorado-cash-machine.htmllast_img read more

Mass screening detects hidden cases of cancers other ailments

first_imgIn 2018, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced that 1.5 lakh HWCs would be opened by 2022 under the Ayushman Bharat scheme   –  THE HINDU Health and wellness centres get cracking COMMENT Published on February 22, 2019 SHARE SHARE EMAILcenter_img health SHARE A government-sponsored mass screening of 1.3 crore people aged above 30 years for non-communicable diseases has led to the discovery of a substantial number of fresh cases of hypertension, diabetes and various cancers. Over 9.01 lakh people (close to 7 per cent of the 1.3 crore screened) were newly identified to have high blood pressure. Of the 97.78 lakh persons screened for diabetes, 8.9 lakh (over 9 per cent) were newly found to have high blood sugar levels. Of 71.85 lakh persons screened for oral cancer, 13,747 tested positive. Cancer epidemic The data released by the Union Health Ministry said 1,495 oral cancer patients were on treatment currently and the newly identified cases are up to ten times higher than the number on treatment. Similarly, over 16.67 lakh women were screened for breast cancer and 12,098 were newly identified to be positive, while only 1,848 women are on treatment. Screening of over 12.26 lakh women for cervical cancer threw up equally alarming figures, with 11, 923 newly identified cases while 872 women are on treatment currently. New heath centres The screening was done at 10,252 health and wellness centres (HWCs) that were opened across the country less than a year ago. These centres are envisioned to provide preventive healthcare and are the first point of contact for a person seeking healthcare in their vicinity. The top States to have started HWCs are Andhra Pradesh (1,361), Tamil Nadu (1,318), Uttar Pradesh (912), Karnataka (700) and Kerala (678). Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced in 2018 than 1.5 lakh HWCs would be opened by 2022 under the Ayushman Bharat plan which also entails extending cashless health insurance to 10 crore families. Opening 1.5 lakh HWCs by 2022 would entail building at least 50,000 HWCs every year in the coming three years. Critics say this is an unrealistic target. Up to 21,411 HWCs have been approved for building till date. “But according to available resources, we can build only 15,000 HWCs this year,” Union Health Secretary Preeti Sudan had earlier told BusinessLine.
