Sign up for our daily newsletter Get more great content like this delivered right to you! Country chuckstock/shutterstock.com By Alex Fox, Jeffrey BrainardFeb. 28, 2019 , 7:00 PM The mammoth University of California (UC) system announced today it will stop paying to subscribe to journals published by Elsevier, the world’s largest scientific publisher, headquartered in Amsterdam. Talks to renew a collective contract broke down, the university said, because Elsevier refused to strike a package deal that would provide a break on subscription fees and make all articles published by UC authors immediately free for readers worldwide.The stand by UC, which followed 8 months of negotiations, could have significant impacts on scientific communication and the direction of the so-called open-access movement, in the United States and beyond. The 10-campus system accounts for nearly 10% of all U.S. publishing output and is among the first U.S. institutions, and by far the largest, to boycott Elsevier over costs. Many administrators and librarians at U.S. universities and elsewhere have complained about what they view as excessively high journal subscription fees charged by commercial publishers.“It’s hard to overstate how big [UC’s move] is for us here in the U.S.,” says Heather Joseph, executive director of the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition, a Washington, D.C.–based group that advocates for open access. “This gives institutions that are on the fence about taking this kind of action a blueprint.” University of California boycotts publishing giant Elsevier over journal costs and open accesscenter_img Click to view the privacy policy.

The university was looking for a contract in which it paid one fee that covered both subscriptions and the article processing costs (APCs) that make individual papers available on an open-access basis, says Ivy Anderson, associate executive director of UC’s California Digital Library in Oakland and co-chair of the system’s Publisher Negotiation Task Force. Elsevier has been charging both the subscription and APCs, which Anderson calls a form of “double-dipping” for the same content. UC wanted a deal to lower subscription costs accordingly—a so-called read and publish deal, she tells ScienceInsider.Jeff MacKie-Mason, who heads UC Berkeley’s library and is also co-chair of the negotiation task force, says Elsevier just didn’t move far enough to UC’s position. The publisher’s final offer “was closer to what we wanted in terms of open access” but nevertheless included a price increase, he says.Elsevier is hoping to keep negotiating. Tom Reller, vice president for communications, issued a statement that the company’s offer “provides a clear path allowing every researcher to choose to publish for free or open access and provides a scaled path to reduce the costs for each campus library.” The proposal also provided UC students and researchers access to all journal articles published by Elsevier, he noted. “We hope we can bridge this divide with them soon,” Reller said.UC published about 50,000 articles last year, and a substantial share, about 10,000, appeared in Elsevier journals. For subscriptions and article fees, UC paid about $11 million, the Los Angeles Times reported recently. (UC says the information is confidential under a nondisclosure agreement.)The UC negotiators’ stances reflected firm support from UC President Janet Napolitano and the university’s Faculty Senate. Together, the system has been on record since 2012 as siding with open-access advocates in Europe and elsewhere, who argue that free access to scientific articles is essential to speed scientific discovery and is justified given that much of the published research was developed with taxpayer funding. However, publishers have said that a sudden flip to a new business model, in which all articles are published open access through author fees, could drive them out of business because revenues per article from subscriptions are higher.MacKie-Mason said he and his UC colleagues have been talking with other institutions about how to transform scientific publishing to favor open access. “We see this as an opportunity to help push forward a movement that’s gaining momentum globally,” Anderson adds. “We’re trying to develop a model that can work in North America,” where academic libraries and their decisions about journal subscriptions are less centralized than they are in Europe.For now, UC will have to find other ways to access Elsevier publications, which include Cell and other journals that are among the world’s most selective. UC has said its libraries are prepared to provide UC readers “alternative means of access” at no cost for new articles published by Elsevier and those in a subset of Elsevier journals for which UC lacks permanent access, “as they do for any other content that we don’t currently license.”UC also noted that some of Elsevier’s newer content is already freely available through open-access publishing, open-access repositories, interlibrary loans, and “other legitimate forms of scholarly sharing.”last_img read more

Russian researchers create intelligent software system for lung cancer diagnostics

first_imgReviewed by Kate Anderton, B.Sc. (Editor)Feb 1 2019This software analyzes patients’ computed tomography (CT) results within 20 seconds and provides an image in which the pathology is clearly markedResearches from Peter the Great St.Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU), Russian Academic Excellence Initiative participant, in collaboration with the radiologists from St.Petersburg Clinical Research for Specialized Types of Medical Care (Oncological) have developed an intelligent software system for lung cancer diagnostics. This software can be installed on any computer. It analyzes patients’ computed tomography (CT) results within 20 seconds and provides an image in which the pathology is clearly marked. Researchers have named the system Doctor AIzimov (AI for Artificial Intelligence) in honor of the science-fiction writer Isaac Asimov, who developed three famous laws of robotics.At the end of 2018, the first tests of this intelligent system were carried out. The system analyzed anonymized CT images of 60 patients at the Oncological Center. According to the radiologists, the tests were successful, as the system has found focal nodules in lungs of small sizes (2 mm).”Initially, we set up an algorithm to search for nodules starting from 6 millimeters, because radiologists themselves start the treatment of tumors of this size. But the system is so smart that it was able to find nodules of even smaller size”, said the project lead Lev Utkin, the head of the SPbPU Research Laboratory of Neural Network Technologies and Artificial Intelligence.Research team includes the staff of the University (Lev Utkin, Mikhail Ryabinin, and Alexei Lukashin), experts from the St. Petersburg Oncological Center (the head of the Radiology Department Anna Meldo and a radiologist Ivan Prokhorov). The project was supported by the Russian Science Foundation.A new proposed and developed approach to the lung cancer classification using the chord method has been patented within only 3 months. The method of chords uses segmented CT images: points are randomly drawn on the surface of a nodule, after that the points are connected by lines (chords). The length histogram of the chords reflects the shape and structure of the tumor. Although the system examines every nodule from the inside, its external surroundings are also very important. To learn more about the tumor, it is placed in a cube, and perpendiculars are drawn from its edges to the surface of the nodule.Related StoriesNew protein target for deadly ovarian cancerLiving with advanced breast cancerStudy reveals link between inflammatory diet and colorectal cancer riskThus, instead of classifying a graphically complex and heavy images of the CT (the size of every CT image is approximately 1 GB), the nodule is represented in the form of compact and simple histograms, which are then analyzed by the Doctor AIzimov system.The scientists have also trained the system to distinguish malignant and benign tumors. “Many different objects may be detected on the CT images, so the main task was to train the system to recognize what each of the objects represents. Using the clinical and radiological classification, we are trying to train the system not only to detect tumors, but also to distinguish other diseases similar to cancer,” comments Anna Meldo, the head of the Radiology Department of the St. Petersburg Clinical Research Center for Specialized Types of Medical Care (Oncological). The system was trained by analyzing 1000 CT images from LUNA 16 and LIDC datasets. Russian researchers have also collected their own dataset named LIRA – Lung Intelligence Resource Annotated. Currently, the dataset holds CT images of about 250 patients. The scientists are planning to increase the number of images by four times by the mid-2019.With each new CT image, the system self-improves. To speed up the learning and testing processes, the researchers use capacities of the supercomputer center “Polytechnic”. In the future, a patient’s CT images will be transferred to the supercomputer using the Internet. This approach allows to reduce the diagnostic testing time per patient from 20 till 2 seconds. After that a radiologist will receive the marked image instead of the large CT image. It will significantly reduce the time needed for the analysis and diagnostics.The open testing of the intelligent system will be carried out at the beginning of 2019. The system will be at first used at the St. Petersburg Clinical Research Center for Specialized Types of Medical Care (Oncological). In the future, the project will be extended and more medical institutions will be involved into the intelligent CT image processing. The system will be adapted to analyze the results of the ultrasound and X-ray medical investigation of other organs. All data will be processed by the supercomputer, and the results issued by the system will be sent to doctors for them to make a decision about the treatment.

Limited awareness of diabetes hypertension in China remains a major public health

first_img Source:https://www.mailman.columbia.edu/ Reviewed by Kate Anderton, B.Sc. (Editor)Apr 25 2019Awareness and diagnoses of hypertension and diabetes in China has been limited, resulting in compromised treatment, and increased screening did not lead to significant improvements, according to a new study at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. Findings are online in the journal BMC Public Health.Until now, there was little information on how individuals with hypertension or diabetes in China first became aware of their conditions and what factors may have contributed to changes in awareness over time.”It does not seem that the screening activities implemented by a national health survey improved awareness and management of these conditions. The persistent limited awareness of diabetes and hypertension remains a major public health concern,” said L.H. Lumey, MD, professor of Epidemiology.Using data from the China Health and Retirement Longitudinal Study (CHARLS), researchers measured the impact of a screening program for people aged 45 years and older between 2011 and 2015. After 2011, study participants were re-interviewed every two years to monitor any changes over time in their health, economic, or social conditions. Physical examinations were repeated in 2013 and 2015, and participants were asked again if they had ever been diagnosed with hypertension, or diabetes. Over 80 percent of participants interviewed in 2011 continued to participate in 2015.Of the more than 11,000 people screened in 2011, 49 percent were identified with hypertension and 18 percent with diabetes by medical examinations. Over 80 percent of the middle-aged and elderly Chinese diagnosed with hypertension and/or diabetes in 2011 reported in 2015 that they were unaware of having the disease(s). Aware hypertension patients were more likely to be older women, live in urban areas, and have higher BMIs.Hypertension was defined as diastolic blood pressure of 90 mmHg or higher; a systolic blood pressure of 140?mmHg or higher; or both; or as currently using an anti-hypertensive medication. Diabetes was defined as a fasting plasma glucose level of 126?mg/dL or higher; an HbA1c concentration of 6.5 mg/dL or higher; or a self-report of doctor diagnosed diabetes.Related StoriesObese patients with Type 1 diabetes could safely receive robotic pancreas transplantDiet and physical exercise do not reduce risk of gestational diabetesSome people treated for type 1 diabetes may have monogenic diabetes, study findsThere was some improvement in disease awareness between 2011 and 2015, mostly attributed to a medical examination initiated by the study participants themselves (over 75 percent), by their work unit or community (12-15 percent), but rarely (less than 3 percent) by the CHARLS examination. “One possible explanation is that the screening in the health survey was seen simply as an isolated process and not as a tool for follow-up, treatment, or referral,” noted Lumey.Several reasons could explain the limited increase in reported disease awareness in 2015, according to the researchers. Some participants may not have received the physical examination and blood test results from the 2011 survey; they may have not understood the results; or, they may have forgotten the results. “They also may have been unwilling to recognize that they had been diagnosed with diabetes or hypertension or failed to take appropriate measures for disease management,” said Lumey. “This will need further study.””While we observed an increase in hypertension and diabetes awareness over time in the CHARLS survey, our results suggest a ‘failure to act on the findings’, and raise important questions about the effective communication of screening results not only in CHARLS but also in other health surveys,” noted Chihua Li of Zhengzhou Central Hospital in China.”Perhaps individuals were expected to take actions by themselves after receiving the screening results,” said Lumey. “But our findings show it is important that increased efforts are made to make sure that participants understand the medical examination results and are motivated to access the appropriate health services where needed. Providing systematic feedback of screening results to survey participants and the monitoring of disease awareness over time will be essential to improve disease recognition and facilitate optimal management.”last_img read more

Pilots sleeping in the cockpit could improve airline safety

first_img An Air Canada plane flown by overtired pilots nearly lands on a taxiway in San Francisco in 2017. The rules are strict. The Air Canada Flight Operations Manual, for instance, says a pilot who wants to rest must notify the co-pilot and a flight attendant. The pilot can sleep for no more than 40 minutes, and must wake up at least half an hour before the descent for landing. They get the first 15 minutes after the nap to fully awaken, during which they can’t resume actually flying the plane, unless they need to help deal with an emergency.Consumers’ opinionsAs consumer opinion experts, we have conducted a series of studies to see what members of the public think about letting pilots use this CRIP procedure to nap in the cockpit. In general, people are less willing to fly when they know a pilot might be allowed to sleep at the controls, and women are less willing than men. In our research, we find that this is mostly attributed to fear, because they don’t understand the benefits of pilot naps. Some of our earlier work has shown that when consumers understand the value of a new procedure, they’ll feel better about it. It seems likely that explaining to people how better-rested pilots makes a flight safer could help more people feel comfortable flying in a plane where the CRIP procedure is allowed.What do pilots think?In a follow-up study, we asked pilots what they thought about being allowed to rest in the cockpit during flight—and they were much more enthusiastic than nonpilots. Seventy percent of pilots favored allowing CRIP. On average, all participants who completed the survey felt that naps of 45 minutes should be approved, which was closely related to the 40 minutes suggested by scientific evidence. They also recognized the need for the pilot to be awake at least 30 minutes before beginning the descent to landing. Overall, the participants thought there were very few potential problems with CRIP and said it would be useful.However, some pilots did express worry about unintended consequences of CRIP implementation. The airlines, knowing that pilots could take naps during the flight, might be tempted to impose more rigorous flight schedules that would eliminate any benefits derived from CRIP. Lastly, participants commented on how this procedure is already being used by international carriers such as Air Canada and Qantas with success. So far, those companies’ crews have not registered widespread complaints about abuse of scheduling practices, and none of the survey respondents who fly for those airlines complained about this potential problem.Will the US allow it?It is hard to say whether the FAA would ever move to let U.S. pilots nap in the cockpit. The scientific research provides empirical evidence as to its advantages, and while consumers are somewhat hesitant, pilots seem very supportive of it.What is clear is that fatigue in the cockpit remains a threat to the aviation industry worldwide. Given the scientific evidence supporting CRIP to counter fatigue, clearly there is value in considering how it could improve aviation safety. Perhaps it’s time to listen to the pilots we trust to fly these airplanes and let them rest when they need to—within reason, and so they can fly more safely. Explore further Resting in the cockpitIt’s widely known that a short nap can improve a pilot’s alertness. Some planes, such as those commonly used on long international flights, have beds their pilots and other crew can use, but smaller planes don’t have the space. Only flights that are longer than eight hours require an additional pilot to be on board so one pilot at a time can rotate out for rest. On shorter flights, U.S. regulations expect both pilots to remain alert for the entire length of the flight, without any chance for rest during the flight.Some countries, including Canada and Australia, allow for pilots to nap in the cockpit. In an example from China, a pilot was caught napping and faced disciplinary action for napping in the cockpit. The official procedure to allow for pilots to nap in the cockpit is called “controlled rest in position.” CRIP has established policies and procedures to allow pilots to rest. Provided by The Conversation Airline pilots are often exhausted. An extreme example happened in 2008, when a pilot and a co-pilot both fell asleep at the controls, missing their landing in Hawaii—earning pilot’s license suspensions as well as getting fired. More recently, overtired pilots came very close to landing on top of another airplane at San Francisco International Airport in 2017. It’s not uncommon for a pilot for a major commercial airline to, for instance, start work in Florida at 5 p.m., with her first flight departing an hour later for a five-hour trip across the country, arriving in California just after 8 p.m. local time. Then she might get a short break and fly a 90-minute short-hop flight to to another California city. When she lands from this second flight, she has spent six and a half hours of the last nine in the cockpit. She is also three time zones from where she started work, and her body thinks it’s 2 a.m. There’s no doubt she’s tired—and she’s lucky not to have encountered any schedule adjustments for aircraft maintenance or weather delays.The airline industry and the government agency that regulates it, the Federal Aviation Administration, have taken steps to reduce pilot fatigue, but many pilots and others remain worried that two pilots are required to remain awake and alert for the entire flight, though one or both may be dealing with symptoms of fatigue. One possible suggestion is letting pilots take brief naps in the cockpit. As researchers of consumer opinions about the airline industry, we’ve found that the American public is wary of this idea, but may feel better about it once they’ve heard an explanation of how it actually makes their flights safer.Limiting pilots’ work timePilot fatigue can be difficult to predict or diagnose—especially since tired pilots usually manage to take off, fly and land safely. Even when something goes wrong, accident investigators may have little evidence of fatigue, except perhaps the sound of someone yawning on cockpit audio recordings.In 2014, the FAA imposed the first new pilot-rest rules in 60 years, limiting overall on-duty time and flight hours per day depending on when a pilot’s shift starts. The rules also established a process by which pilots can report fatigue without being disciplined by their airlines or the government. This document is subject to copyright.

Telangana Govt to go ahead with setting up of Bayyaram steel plant

first_imgPanel formed to submit a detailed report in one month Published on Telangana Despite the Central Government remaining silent on the proposal to set up an integrated steel plant in Bayyaram, the Telangana Government has resolved to take up the issue more vigorously.The State Government has repeatedly approached the Centre for the past four years for setting up the plant. Despite giving an assurance of bearing 50 per cent of the expenditure, there is no positive response, said the Minister for IT & Industries, K T Rama Rao. The Government has constituted a committee to study and submit a detailed report on Bayyaram steel plant in one month. It includes officials from Energy, Singareni, Mines and Geology & TSMDC Departments. The committee will study the process of establishment of a steel plant and availability of land, water and iron ore resources and road connectivity. As per AP State Reorganisation Act 2014, Telangana has been assured a steel plant at Bayyaram. “Though there are a lot of possibilities for setting up of a steel plant at Bayyaram, the Central Government is not responding positively since four years,” Rama Rao stated as per an official release. The Telangana Government has been pursuing the issue of setting up of the steel plant with the Union Government. The Minister reiterated that the State Government would continue its efforts to get the steel plant established at Bayyaram at any cost. “The Telangana Government is committed to Bayyaram steel plant with or without the support of Government of India,” the Minister contended. The steel plant at Bayyaram is expected to create a lot of direct and in indirect employment opportunities in the State.

Road construction to slow down in FY20 CARE report

first_imgPublished on SHARE SHARE SHARE EMAIL December 07, 2018 road transport The pace of constructing roads is likely to slow down to the levels of FY18 or even below as more than 340 projects are stuck at the pre-awarding stage without having received the appointed date, CARE said in a report. Nearly half the projects are reportedly under the Bharatmala scheme.The report also stated road constructions may peak in the second half of the current fiscal due to the elections.The limited availability of funding for new projects as well as National Highway Authority of India’s (NHAI) slow progress, on land acquisition for awarding new projects under EPC model and hybrid annuity model (HAM), will lead to a slowdown in road construction pace, it added.“The overall pace of construction is expected to decline in FY20 on account of funding shortage for new projects. Funding will be constrained by the limited number of banks which are in a position to lend outside the Preventive Corrective Action (PCA) framework. Further, the tight liquidity situation in the non-banking financial companies (NBFC) space will constrain future lending. The budgetary support may not be able to compensate for this shortfall,” the report noted.According to CARE’s analysis, there was a slow down in the construction pace to 23 km per day (in comparison to 27 km per day for FY18) for the first in 7 months of the current financial year due to the monsoons and seasonal disruption.The report said that the following four months of FY19 the pace could peak at 30-32 km per day.It, however, did not specify the reason for the sudden increase in construction pace. Sources said that the upcoming elections are likely to increase the pace of construction.CARE expects the budgetary expenditure, for the development of roads and highways, in the current fiscal to be higher than the allocation of Rs 1,20,557 crore; taking the upcoming elections into consideration.This, in turn, may lead to a higher outgo for land acquisition to speed-up the awarding of projects.The government has been trying to monetize the existing road projects to meet the excess capital requirements. This is to help fund new projects and the first bundle of highways under the toll-operate-transfer (TOT) model. Although the model has fetched the government Rs. 9,861 crore (1.5 times more than the estimate), CARE analysts believe, “The scope to raise funds through this medium may be short-term and has limited prospect as the number of attractive road projects that can be bundled and offered to the investors is limited.”Land acquisitionWhile the government has set high targets for the constructions of highways and new projects award, the NHAI’s progress in land acquisitions has been stalled due to a sharp rise in the average cost of land acquisition by around 300 per cent over the last 4 years on an average. Experts point out that the construction pace, of 30-32 km per day, is still far behind the government’s target of 45 km per day for this fiscal. The highways construction target for FY19 has been set at 16,418 km, which is 67 per cent higher than the result achieved in FY18, CARE noted. So far a little over 9800 km of National Highways has been constructed, it added. Representative image   –  The Hindu COMMENTS COMMENTlast_img read more

Topworth Steels promoters arrested released on bail

TDP betrayed Girijans in agency area Pawan KalyanTDP betrayed Girijans in agency

first_imgPublished on COMMENT SHARE SHARE EMAIL Cine actor and Jana Sena leader Pawan Kalyan has hit out at the Telugu Desam Party for “betraying the interests of the people of the State in general and Girijans in the agency areas of the State in particular.”He was addressing a rally at Paderu in the eastern ghats of Visakhapatnam district, popularly known as the agency area, on Wednesday. Regretting that he had lent support to the TDP-BJP alliance in 2014, he said in the aftermath of bifurcation, the State needed an experienced politician. But the performance of Chandrababu Naidu and that of the TDP was disappointing.He said illegal quarrying was going on in the agency area and the mineral wealth was being exploited with impunity, causing great damage to environment, and the aboriginal inhabitants (Girijans).
