WASHOUGAL — Maybe it was the pneumonia that hit organist Louis Pain a few weeks before the big gig. Maybe it was the unrelenting pressure of pushing his trio’s new, hourlong album toward release by deadline.Or maybe it was the french fries. “I sat there thinking, I knew I shouldn’t have eaten those f—g french fries,” said Pain, 66.Whatever the cause, Pain found himself in unexpected pain one night in late March when he was onstage in Portland’s Pearl District, jamming away with his trio. There were about 20 minutes left in the set when Pain felt what seemed like sudden heartburn. “It wasn’t like Fred Sanford, ‘This is the big one!’,” Pain says. He finished the tune. He went outside and sat down, feeling queasy. Somebody checked his pulse and found it irregular. Pain’s wife, Tracy, stuffed him into their car and raced to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center in Vancouver.He walked into the hospital and politely asked to jump the emergency department line because he might be having a heart attack; as soon as he said those words, “heart attack,” he felt like a racing car that pulls into the pit and is immediately descended upon from all directions by a fast-working crew.The crew at PeaceHealth did a great job, he said, determining that he had indeed suffered a heart attack and quickly inserting two stents. Pain was told later that one of his arteries had been 100 percent blocked. It was the kind of heart attack doctors call a widow-maker, he said. Tracy, meanwhile, was asked if she wanted a chaplain to sit with her. “This has been much tougher on her than on me,” Pain said.Pain learned that heart disease and its causes aren’t completely understood. A slender guy with low blood pressure, Pain used to think he was about as low-risk as you could get; but just being a male over 60 years old means that’s no longer true — obviously, he said.
Russian & Eurasia Investor will be distributed internationally, with the majority going to Moscow, London and New York. Martin is hopeful the magazine will be as much of a success in the U.S. as he expects it to be in Russia. “We launched a preview issue in the U.S. that was well received by the focus group. The market here is a little smaller, but I think the magazine will find its readers. Russia is increasingly internationalizing, and it’s the perfect time for a magazine like Russia & Eurasia Investor.” Hoping to tap into the English language Russian investor market, J. Quinn Martin is launching Russia & Eurasia Investor magazine. The bimonthly title is set to launch February 1 with an initial print run of 25,000.”There are comparable magazines in other emerging markets, but there’s nothing like Russia & Eurasia Investor in Russia,” explains Quinn, a journalist who until recently had been working in Russia for a number of years. “Sure, there are other business magazines in Russia, but no solid English language magazine. That’s where we fit in.”The New York-based magazine will feature special reports and analysis on emerging markets like Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan and on industries such as banking, mining and energy. With what Martin calls an “editorial hub” in Moscow, the magazine will have an obvious emphasis on Russia and the former Soviet states but will cover markets around the world.”Russia and Eurasia is now a $1.4 trillion economy and Russian companies raised more than $32 billion in IPOs last year,” Martin says. “Western capital is pouring into the region.”

Crowds gathered in downtown Anchorage this afternoon to await the arrival of the president. KSKA’s Anne Hillman waited behind the Denaina Center, hoping for a brief glimpse.Download Audio.Amaris Elise Estell-Tate and Lorraine Estell pose with an old friend–the doctor who delivered Amaris. Hillman/KSKAPeople trickled slowly toward the corner of 8th and F. Lorraine Estell walked up with her seven-year-old granddaughter, Amaris, in tow.“I wanna try to get a selfie with him,” Amaris stated with confidence.“With who?” Estell asks her.“The president,” she replies as if it’s the most obvious thing in the world.“What do you think is so cool about seeing the president?” I ask.“Umm… We’re both black, I guess?”“That’s it?” her grandmother presses. “What else?”“I like the president. I like his daughters, too,” she says with more thought. “I learned from them to be yourself and be unique.”Estell smiles in agreement. “Awesome.”As the crowd grew and airplanes flew overhead, police gave directions, nudging people away from the street.“I’d like your cooperation if I could, please,” an officer addressed the crowd as he set out neon green collapsible barriers. “It would make it nice for everyone if we could get back up on the sidewalk. I’m sorry.”As time inched by rumors flew – did they move the cones to let the president’s car through? Did they block off the Hilton? Is that his car? What did the secret service say?“Kinda weird down here,” says Steve Benzler, who waited for more than four hours for a glimpse. “Kind of a carnival atmosphere with helicopters and jets above. I didn’t know what to expect, but I knew it would be different and special, so I had to come down and check it out.”A crowd awaits Obama’s arrival outside of the Dena’ina Center. Hillman/KSKAThe waiting continued, and Amarius grew restless. Her grandmother points out members of the secret service.“Where? I can’t see anything,” she whines.Then – eventually – Estelle sees movement from the garage at the back of the convention center, far from where our section of crowd waits.“Three people…” she says. “Wearing plain clothes. They’re wearing hats with a little jacket on. And a bullet proof vest. Oh my gosh!”“Did you see them?” I ask awkwardly trying to peer over the crowd as screams erupt around me.“That was his car! You saw the seal? You saw the seal?” Estell shouts to everyone around.And with that, the president was inside, his press pool walking past. All Estell saw was a small bit of his vehicle, but it was enough…for her.“So what do you think? You just saw it from a distance, but was it still cool?” I ask, having seen nothing.“Still awesome,” she nods. “Still awesome. Yeah. The fact that he’s here is great.”Her granddaughter nuzzles up against her. “I didn’t get to see the president,” she says, voice filled with disappointment.“It’s okay, it’s okay,” Estell says hugging her close.But Amaris was not going to let the moment go by without some sort of splash. As the last of the press walked around the corner, the crowd started to chant. “Obama! Obama!”“Welcome to Alaska!” Amaris belts with all of her might.The crowd erupts in laughter. “What a girl!” Estell says. “You tell him.”
MS Dhoni never left the crease in a potential ‘Mankad’ dismissal scenario.iplt20.comRavichandran Ashwin may well have started a trend in the Indian Premier League with his ‘Mankad’ dismissal of Jos Buttler when Kings XI Punjab met Rajasthan Royals on March 25 as Krunal Pandya tried to similarly send MS Dhoni back to the pavilion when Mumbai Indians met Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede Stadium on April 3.The incident happened in the 14th over of CSK’s run chase and Krunal was bowling to Kedar Jadhav with the CSK captain at the non-striker’s end. Pandya was into his delivery stride when Dhoni was taking a start and moving along with the bowler towards the striker’s end. Instead of delivering the fifth ball of the over, the left-arm orthodox bowler simply completed his run up and rolled his arm over. He subsequently stared at the batsman but did not look at Dhoni.”Surely we won’t see this [Mankading] in IPL,” exclaimed Mathew Hayden on commentary as he noticed Mumbai Indians wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock sporting a wry smile. It must be noted that at no point did Dhoni’s bat leave the crease and even if Krunal had intended to knock the bails off, Dhoni would not be dismissed. “Yeah, right instincts for Dhoni – bat was inside, ball wasn’t seen. You know he does most things right. Just out of instincts with Dhoni, very rarely will you seem him do something that is incorrect,” commented Sanjay Manjrekar on air.There was no reference to this incident later on either but Dhoni spoke about where his team went wrong as CSK suffered their first defeat of the 2019 campaign of the IPL. “I think quite a few things went wrong for us. We started well, were right on the mark for the first 10-12 overs. Then, a few catches were dropped, a few misfields, the death overs bowling wasn’t great. We don’t have bowlers who hit the deck, it was slightly tough on them,” he remarked.CSK had started very well and was on top in the match till the 14th over of Mumbai’s batting as the home side had scored only 82 runs. But Krunal’s younger brother Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard spoiled CSK’s party at the death as they plundered 88 runs in the last six overs including a mammoth 29-run last over. MS Dhoni has a few injury concerns to take care of.Shaun Roy/IPL/SportzpicsThe last over was bowled by Dwayne Bravo who has since suffered a hamstring injury to rub salt into his and his team’s wounds. “We will have to see the wicket for the next game, we have to see the combination. Bravo has an hamstring injury, we don’t have a few players, we already have some injuries, David Willey isn’t there, he has his own problems, Lungi Ngidi isn’t with us as well, we will have to look at the pitch and then decide on the right combination,” Dhoni said after the match.CSK will head home to the MA Chidambaram Stadium next to face Ashwin’s KXIP on April 6.
Explore further © 2010 PhysOrg.com Assembling the jigsaw puzzle of drug addiction The graphical model, developed by Taeg Sang Cho and colleagues can solve puzzles of any image or photograph with a full range of colors, while the previous jigsaw solvers could only handle sharp images of limited colors. The previous record for jigsaw-solving by a computer was achieved in 2008 by a team of Danish scientists, and solved a puzzle consisting of 320 pieces. Their method used cartoons with clear structures and well-defined edges and sharp colors, and the pieces were cut in traditional shapes, which made it easier to solve than a puzzle in which every piece is square. In their experiments, the team chopped 5-megabyte pictures into 400 squares and fed the data from each into their computer software. The software analyzed the major colors in the squares and arranged them in groups of similar colors. It then referred to a database of images to arrange the pieces in their most likely positions to produce an initial low resolution image. So, for example, a puzzle with a mixture of green, gray and blue would be interpreted as a landscape and the software would first group the bright pieces and blue pieces at the top (since objects in or near the sky are generally brighter, and the sky is often blue), the gray in the middle, interpreted as buildings, and green in the foreground, interpreted as vegetation.When the pieces were arranged in their approximate positions the computer then checked the pixel colors on the boundaries of each piece and identified neighboring pieces that most closely matched the colors. The software fixed a small number of pieces, called anchor patches, and refined the layout for the remaining pieces to reconstruct the original picture. Using their system, the software was able to successfully reconstruct 20 test images, and could solve a 400-piece puzzle in only three minutes.Cho said that since the software is expert at finding pieces that blend well, it may help make edited pictures more realistic in the future. Cho also hopes the software could be useful for other scientific problems, such as DNA/RNA modeling or reassembling fragments of documents or archaeological relics, all of which can be modeled as jigsaw puzzles. The paper will be presented at the 2010 IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) to be held in San Francisco on the 15th to 17th of June. (PhysOrg.com) — Completing jigsaw puzzles is a challenging and popular hobby, but now scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the U.S. and Tel Aviv University in Israel have for the first time developed a probabilistic graphical model to solve a jigsaw puzzle consisting of 400 square pieces.

Senior Pakistan batsman Younis Khan is contemplating calling it a day from one-day internationals after the series against England in the UAE.Well-informed sources told PTI on Monday that Younis might announce his retirement from one-day internationals during or after the four-match series.“There has been so much controversy over his selection in the one-day team and plus the clear indications from the team management that they want to build a young team for the World Cup 2019 that Younis is contemplating retirement,” one source confirmed. Also Read – A league of his own!He said that Younis, 37, has been waiting for the right time to call it a day from 50-overs cricket and the series against England gives him this chance.“He has not decided as yet but he himself is keen to end the controversy surrounding his selection for ODIs and there is a chance he might decide to take a bow himself after having played the series against England,” the source said. Younis was recalled to the Pakistan squad for the series last week after he last played an ODI in the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand in March 2015. Also Read – Domingo named new Bangladesh cricket coachSince March 2013 the senior batsman, who has been in record breaking form in Test cricket, has been out of the ODI squad for long periods and has played just 11 matches in the last two and half years. “His close friends and cricket advisors also feel Younis should retire from ODIs when he is in the team and do it himself,” the source stated. Sources close to the national selectors also said they got vibes from Younis that he might quit ODIs next month. The selectors earlier this year had made an offer to Younis to lead the team in Zimbabwe when Azhar Ali was not available but quit afterwards but he declined the offer saying he will quit on his own terms. Head coach Waqar Younis during his recent meetings with chief selector Haroon Rasheed in Sharjah assured him that Younis would not sit on the bench and get a chance to play the full series. The chief selector after much difficulty managed to convince the head coach to give the in-form Younis a shot in the ODI series.

Edward Hendrick, Ph.D., shows that the breast cancer death rate has now fallen 38 percent since 1990. This downward trend follows the increased use of mammography screening beginning in the mid-1980s. This decline amounts to 274,765 breast cancer deaths averted since 1990 — including 22,054 in 2014 alone. In 1990, 73.8 women per 100,000 women died of breast cancer. The newly-added 2014 SEER data shows that figure has dropped to 45.9 breast cancer deaths per 100,000 women. Prior to 1990, the breast cancer death rate had remained virtually unchanged since death rates were first recorded by SEER in 1969.Regular mammography screening and improved therapies are undoubtedly responsible for the decline in breast cancer deaths, according to the research authors. Mammography can detect cancer early when it is most treatable and can be treated less invasively. This also helps preserve quality of life.A study published in Cancer showed that more than 70 percent of the women who died from breast cancer in their 40’s at Harvard teaching hospitals were among the 20 percent of women who were not being screened. A study in the British Medical Journal shows that early detection of breast cancer — as with mammography — significantly improves breast cancer survival.Major American medical organizations with expertise in breast cancer care, including the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), American College of Radiology (ACR) and Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) continue to recommend that women start getting annual mammograms at age 40.For more information: www.mammographysaveslives.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Artificial Intelligence | July 18, 2019 Paragon Biosciences Launches Qlarity Imaging to Advance FDA-cleared AI Breast Cancer Diagnosis System Paragon Biosciences LLC announced the launch of its seventh portfolio company, Qlarity Imaging LLC, which was founded… read more News | Ultrasound Women’s Health | July 11, 2019 FDA Clears Koios DS Breast 2.0 AI-based Software Koios Medical announced its second 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

No related posts. Víctor Emilio Granados, president of Costa Rica’s Legislative Assembly, said Tuesday that “Judge Fernando Cruz was re-elected in October.” Following that statement, Granados annulled a vote last Thursday that blocked the re-election of Cruz to the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court, or Sala IV.Setting off a political firestorm, 38 lawmakers last week voted not to reappoint Cruz for another eight-year term at the Sala IV. On Monday, several members of the judicial branch, dressed in black, denounced the legislative vote as an affront to the country’s separation of powers. Lawmaker Luis Fishman, of the Social Christian Unity Party (PUSC), challenged the assembly vote, saying the term limit had expired, and according to the Costa Rican Constitution, Cruz was automatically re-elected in October. Granados’ announcement on Tuesday agreed with that position.In the assembly, 40 lawmakers attended the Tuesday session where last week’s vote was reversed. According to Granados, Article 158 of Costa Rica’s Constitution states that “the reelection of judges occurs automatically for periods of eight years if, when that period is over, at least 38 lawmakers are silent on the matter.”Last Thursday’s vote took place one month after Cruz’s eight-year term had expired. Granados ordered Cruz to be sworn in for another eight years next Thursday.Ruling party lawmakers said they would likely appeal. Facebook Comments
