Ganguly in spotlight as KKR host Delhi at Eden

Kolkata: Swashbuckling Andre Russell’s big-hitting prowess will be pitted against Kagiso Rabada’s inch-perfect yorkers for the second time when Kolkata Kight Riders face Delhi Capitals in a return-leg fixture of the IPL here on Friday. Away from the match, the spotlight will also fall on where former KKR and India captain Sourav Ganguly sits during the match. Ganguly will be a ‘visitor’ at his ‘home’ ground of Eden Gardens as he is currently donning the advisor’s hat in the Delhi franchise, which has drawn ‘conflict-of-interest’ charges against him. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhSecond in the IPL table with eight points from six matches, KKR’s season so far has been a Russell show with the Jamaican amassing 257 runs from five innings, out of which 150 have come in sixes alone. His average has been 128.50 while the strike rate is a mind-boggling 212.39, something that has left the opposition clueless on how to stop him. Mahendra Singh Dhoni did it with perfect execution by stranding Dre-Russ (as Russell is known to KKR fans) with his spin-heavy attack en route to handing KKR a crushing seven-wicket defeat in Chennai in their last match. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterKKR’s second defeat this season has been at the hands of Delhi Capitals in a dramatic Super Over finish at Kotla with Rabada winning the battle against Russell. Tasked to defend 11 runs in the Super Over, Rabada was smashed for a four by Russell in the first ball, but returned strongly to uproot the middle stump with an inch-perfect yorker, something Ganguly has termed as the “ball of the tournament”. While KKR will look to avenge their first leg defeat, Delhi, who have six points from as many matches, will be looking for their fourth win of the league to return to top-five. While the KKR fans may be anticipating a Russell-mania at the Eden, the nature of the wicket will also play an important role in Friday’s match. With Delhi Capitals boasting a world class pace attack spearheaded by the 23-year-old South African Rabada, a few insiders at Cricket Association of Bengal have claimed that its president Ganguly may have a ‘say’ in the pitch which could assist pacers. “You will know about the nature of the wicket on the day of the match. Whatever it is, whichever team plays well will win, it’s simple,” Ganguly has said, why replying on the allegations with a straight bat, even as Eden Gardens is set to be divided in loyalty. read more

Starbucks profit climbs as sales increase in US Asia but sales fall

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Candice Choi, The Associated Press Posted Apr 25, 2013 4:33 pm MDT Starbucks profit climbs as sales increase in US, Asia but sales fall short NEW YORK, N.Y. – Americans may not feel optimistic about the economy but they’re still spending more at Starbucks.The world’s biggest coffee chain said Thursday that its profit rose in its fiscal second quarter as a key sales figure climbed in the U.S., its biggest market. New drinks and food, such as its sandwiches and pre-packaged lunch boxes, helped lift sales.A 7 per cent sales bump at U.S. cafes open at least 13 months came despite the broader industry’s struggles to grow at a time when other fast-food companies say people are being more careful with money. McDonald’s and Burger King saw sales decline during the first three months of the year and even Chipotle, which has grown rapidly in recent years, said sales at established restaurants grew just 1 per cent.Earlier this month, an Associated Press-GfK poll found only one in four Americans expects his or her financial situation to improve over the next year.Starbucks has been evolving its mix of food and drinks and expanding overseas as it faces intensifying competition at home from fast-food chains, which are offering more lattes and frozen coffee drinks. For example, the company recently started rolling out Evolution bottled juices in its cafes and new baked goods from a San Francisco bakery chain are expected in all stores by the end of 2014.Chief Financial Officer Troy Alstead said the hope is that Starbucks will become more of a lunch destination. He noted that traffic was growing in the afternoon hours, when traffic is generally slower than the morning rush.The company also is making a big push behind its loyalty program, a move that’s expected to get people to come back more often and spend more when they visit. A recent offer for a $5 gift card for joining the program resulted in 1 million new registered members, the company said.Starbucks, which has 18,000 locations around the world, said global sales at established cafes rose 6 per cent during the period. That included an 8 per cent increase in Asia, where the company has been focusing its expansion efforts.But the figure fell 2 per cent in Europe, where Starbucks has struggled to compete with local chains. The company also says the economy has made its turnaround push particularly difficult.“It just continues to be a tough environment for us — and for everyone,” Alstead said.To improve results in the region, the company is shifting to more of a licensing model that lowers overhead costs and hands over control to local partners who may be more adept at adapting to local tastes.Based on the momentum seen through the first half of the fiscal year, Starbucks said it was raising its outlook for 2013. But total sales came in shy of Wall Street expectations and its shares fell in afterhours trading.For the quarter, Starbucks earned $390.4 million, or 51 cents per share. That’s up from $309.9 million, or 40 cents per share, a year ago. Not including one-time items, it earned 48 cents per share, in line with analyst estimates.Revenue rose 11 per cent to $3.56 billion. But that was shy of the $3.58 billion Wall Street expected, according to FactSet.Shares of Starbucks fell 3 per cent to $58.75.The company says it now expect full-year earnings of $2.12 to $2.18, up from the previous forecast of $2.06 to $2.15 per share. read more

Hostile US polices have made Korean Peninsula worlds most dangerous hotspot DPRK

“The Korean Peninsula has now been turned into the world’s most dangerous hot spot which can even ignite the outbreak of a nuclear war,” Minister Ri Yong Ho said in his address, adding: “The situation [there] is often engulfed in a state that goes out of control, whose root cause squarely lies in the United States, which does not abandon its hostile policy towards the DPRK.”Referring to recent US military exercises, including “a pre-emptive nuclear strike” aimed at the “decapitation” of the DPRK leadership and “occupation of Pyongyang,” the Minister said that there have never been such undisguised military threats and dangerous acts conducted “under the nose” of the adversary.Recalling that the Korean Peninsula does not have a proper institutional peace mechanism and that the war there remains in a state of temporary armistice, he said “it is the place where provocative military acts […] can easily infuriate the other side, thus inviting its response” and even incidental accidents could escalate into an all-out war.He further said that the DPRK has made every possible effort to prevent an armed conflict, while taking necessary self-defensive countermeasures whenever the provocative and aggressive joint military exercises were conducted by the US and the Republic of Korea and spoke of the DPRK’s request to hold an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss the exercises but was turned away every time.“On the other hand, the UN Security Council takes issue with the righteous self-defensive measures taken by the DPRK to safeguard its sovereignty, dignity and national security,” he stressed and noted that his country “had no other choice but to ‘go nuclear’ inevitably after it has done everything possible to defend the national security from the constant nuclear threats.”He further emphasized that countries that had their begun nuclear activities far ahead of the DPRK were never called into question “because the UN Security Council is the place where [guilt is] decided not on the basis of justice but by the criterion whether one has the veto power or not.”The Minister also recalled the recent Summit of Heads of the Non Aligned Movement (NAM) where leaders “expressed their condemnation at the promulgation and application of unilateral coercive measures against countries of the Movement, in violation of the Charter of the United Nations and international law, particularly the principles of non-intervention, self-determination and independence of the States.”He further underscored that the DPRK will continue to take measures to strengthen its national nuclear armed forces to defend its dignity, right to existence and safeguard genuine peace against threat of nuclear war from the US.Concluding his address, the Minister said: “The Government of the DPRK will push ahead with the vigorous struggle to remove the root cause of the threat of nuclear war imposed by the US, by means of powerful nuclear deterrence, safeguard the peace and security of the Korean peninsula, Asia and the world at large and to denuclearize the world.” read more

Challenge accepted Ohio State cheerleaders battle other Buckeye teams

Ohio State cheerleaders and rowers hold a punch pose after they raced on the Scioto River in September. Credit: Courtesy of Kyler HollandThe race was close — but only for a moment. Not long after it began, the Ohio State rowing team glided past the other boat in the water, building a lead with each harmonious sweep of the oar. In the other boat, with less harmony, were members of the Ohio State cheer team. As the distance between the two vessels on the Scioto River grew wider, the obvious became, well, even more obvious: the rowing team was not going to lose this race against the cheer team.Then again, the reason the cheerleaders — one wearing a wrestling singlet, another wearing a Cleveland Browns’ Johnny Manziel jersey and yellow football pants with one knee pad — found themselves in a boat at 7:45 a.m. on Sept. 1 was never really about who would win. As senior cheerleader Axel Halvarson put it, it’s about “inter-team bonding.” “You always walk around campus and you see the book bags of athletes, but you don’t really want to say ‘Hi’ to them, because it’s like, ‘I don’t know you, but I’m an athlete too. You’re an athlete and we’re not talking,’ so this kind of bridges that gap,” said Carter Marsch, a senior cheerleader. There aren’t any deep fissures within the athletic department, but, as senior rower Chelsea Harpool said, “We all have our own practices and everything. We don’t really interact much,” so athletes often look forward to chances to hang out across teams. And so far, the race has accomplished what it sought to do. “It’s been super fun since then because a lot of people on our team and the cheer team that were part of it know each other now,” Harpool said. “We see each other all the time in French [Fieldhouse] or just around the different athletic facilities just to catch up.”  The stage for the race was set over the summer when Harpool talked with cheerleader Kyler Holland while hanging out with a fellow members of Athletes In Action, a campus ministry group. Holland mentioned a video he made of his teammates competing against the Ohio State women’s volleyball team in the spring — the first time the cheerleaders competed against other Buckeye athletes — to Harpool, and told her how fun it would be to do something similar against the rowing team. Harpool mentioned the idea to her coach, Andy Teitelbaum, the next day, and he was on board with the idea. The race was the morning after the Ohio State football team’s first game against Indiana, and, because it had to happen before speed boats began creating wakes on the river, it meant three things. One, the four cheerleaders who were at the game in Bloomington, Indiana, the night before were running on little sleep. Two, the rowing team had to move its regularly scheduled warmups from about 6:20 a.m. to 5 a.m., so it was also running on little sleep. And three, there wasn’t a lot of time for the cheerleaders to learn how to actually row the boat. Learning to make sure the oar enters the water perpendicular is hardly the problem (though that’s nothing to sneeze at, either). The real difficulty comes when all eight people get in the boat and have to row in harmony, a fact the cheerleaders learned quickly. “They’re all in sync moving, and then you see us and everybody is all over the place,” Halvarson said laughing. “If we’d gone again, like another day after everybody learned, I think we might’ve done better. We still wouldn’t have won, but we would’ve at least looked better.” Harpool didn’t dispute that. She said the cheerleaders had about 15 minutes in the boat before the race started. Usually, Harpool said, “most people that are actually being taught to row have weeks of building up with different skillsets before they actually row with all eight people in the boat.”  “We’ve never really thrown someone in a boat with very minimal explanation and been like, ‘You just have a few minutes. Figure it out,’” she said. “I don’t think any of us knew what to expect, but they got the boat moving pretty well there by the end.” The race likely isn’t the end of the cheerleaders challenging other teams in their sports. Of course, it always depends on logistics, and Halvarson said it is easiest to arrange when teams aren’t amid their competitive season, which was the case with volleyball and rowing. Currently, Halvarson said the cheerleaders are trying to set something up with the rifle team. And after men’s soccer senior defender Niall Logue overheard Marsch talking about the rowing race in a class they have together, Logue asked to exchange phone numbers so they could try to organize a competition between teams. Plus, Harpool said the cheerleaders’ two cross-sport adventures were brought up at a Student-Athlete Advisory Committee meeting, and “it seemed like everybody across the board loved the concept of switching sports for a day or trying to compete against other teams.” “Everybody is really pumped about the idea and wants to see more of it,” she said, which means, despite the gaps between the rowers and cheerleaders on the water, the cheerleaders appear to be on their way to getting their wish — seeing any remaining social gaps continue to close. read more

Worldclass SinoAustralian resources group takes the stage

first_imgJune 18 marks the historic launch of MMG (Minerals and Metals Group), which has been formed following the completion of the acquisition earlier this month by China Minmetals Non-ferrous of key OZ Minerals’ assets. Speaking at the launch of MMG and the unveiling of its new logo, the President of China Minmetals, Zhou Zhongshu, expressed his company’s excitement at having the opportunity to be part of the formation of a worldclass resources group.“The organisation we launch here today has strength and a clear direction in its aim to develop worldclass mineral and metal projects. My hope is that it will come to be recognised as a familiar and respected participant in the Australian and international mining and exploration community and symbolise the long-term partnership over many years between our company and Australia and between our respective countries.”Mr Zhou reinforced the strong links between Australia and China and the mutually beneficial outcomes he hoped would flow from the joint exploration and development of resources. “The purchase of these assets is the largest single transaction that Minmetals have ever undertaken and, in acquiring 100% of these assets, it is also the largest such purchase in Australia by a Chinese company.“We will honour all our existing commitments but, importantly, we hope to deliver new opportunities for the Australian resources industry, expand our workforce domestically, continue to support local communities and grow local economies as global conditions improve,” he said.Andrew Michelmore, MMG’s Chief Executive Officer, said that he was looking forward to the challenge of delivering on the high expectations that China Minmetals, the Australian Government and local communities had for MMG. “With established mining assets in Australia and Laos, and exciting exploration and development opportunities domestically and around the world, I am confident MMG is well positioned to deliver on these expectations. We have the fundamentals here – the people, the resources, the drive and the commitment – to create a great business.”MMG operates a portfolio of world-class base metal mining operations, development projects and exploration fields. The group is the world’s second largest producer of zinc as well as a substantial producer of copper, lead, gold and silver. The group currently has mining operations located in Australia and Asia and a large portfolio of advanced and early stage exploration projects through Australia, Asia and North America. MMG’s operations include:The Century mine in Queensland which is the world’s second largest open-pit zinc mine – producing some 500,000 t/y of zincThe Sepon copper operation in Laos which produces approximately 65,000 t/y of copper. The gold operation at Sepon is also in its seventh year of productionThe Golden Grove underground base and precious metals mine in Western Australia that produces concentrates of zinc, copper and other base and precious metalsThe Rosebery mine in Tasmania, a polymetallic underground mine, in operation since 1936, which has current potential to extend life beyond 2030The Avebury nickel mine in Tasmania, currently on care and maintenanceAn extensive portfolio of exploration projects and joint ventures across Australia, Asia and North America.last_img read more

Stealth ships updated paperbacksized ultrasmall PC

first_imgStealth.com has announced a brand new version of its ultra-small mini PC called the LPC-100M that’s meant to be installed in vehicles or embedded units. But the components and performance on offer may make it a tempting proposition for anyone in the market for a tiny PC.The LPC-100M measures just 102 x 155 x 37mm yet houses the following components:Intel Core 2 Duo 8400 @ 2.26GHz or Dual Core Celeron T3100 @ 1.9GHzUp to 8GB DDR3 memoryUp to 500GB 2.5″ hard drive or SSDIntel Mobile GM45 Express chipsetGigabit LAN4 USB 2.02 SerialDVI-I, DVI-D VideoAudio In/Out, 2-PS/2 ports1 external express card slotThe tiny PC is compatible with Windows 7/Vista/XP or Linux operating systems. It also has an customizable start-up and shut-down procedure as Ed Boutilier, CEO of Stealth explains:One of the unique attributes the LPC-100M mobile computer possesses is a user selectable smart power control interface. Start-up and shut-down times are user definable allowing for safe application launching along with a controlled shutdown period. This is absolutely critical in preventing data corruption when power sources are interrupted in mobile and field environments. While the LPC-100M may be small the price it carries isn’t. The base model starts at $1,095 without an operating system. If you want the top spec machine (without an SSD) and Windows 7 Pro 64-bit then expect to pay at least $1,610.Read more at the Stealth press releaseMatthew’s OpinionThat’s a serious amount of money for a PC that’s going to have middling performance, but then it’s not meant as a desktop solution. This is a PC meant to be embedded or placed in a vehicle and therefore comes at a premium. If you’re building the right device around it the price may seem quite reasonable based on what the end product will sell for.I attempted to build a tiny nettop last year and ended up using the M350 case which measured 62 x 192 x 210mm. That’s getting on for double the size of the LPC-100M, but then the whole build only cost me $352. It’s a lot less than Stealth are asking for, and even with performance components I’d come in a lot cheaper than the LPC-100M. You are clearly paying for the size.As for what this updated machine offers over the LPC-100 released in July, you can have more RAM, there’s more ports, and the graphics solution has been updated to offer more performance. The price has risen $100 for the base model.last_img read more

City of Chula Vista considers legalizing marijuana sales

first_img Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter February 6, 2018 Posted: February 6, 2018 Updated: 10:46 PM Sasha Foo center_img City of Chula Vista considers legalizing marijuana sales CHULA VISTA (KUSI) — The City of Chula Vista is considering a proposal to make marijuana shops and other businesses legal.A draft proposal of the ordinance was presented to city councilmembers on Tuesday night.Last November, KUSI showed viewers that many unlicensed, illegal dispensaries are flourishing in Chula Vista.Under the proposed ordinance, Deputy City Manager Kelley Bacon says the city would restrict the number of retailers to a maximum of three in each council district.That could mean a combination of storefront and delivery services with no more than two storefronts in each district. Businesses involved in the cultivation, distribution, manufacture or testing of cannabis products would only be allowed in the city’s industrial zones.Any operator who had an illegal business in Chula Vista would be barred from applying for a license. The future of marijuana in the county’s second largest city hinges on passage of a sales tax by voters. Revenue from the sales tax will be applied to the costs of hiring additional staff to enforce the new regulations.In a separate vote later this month, the City Council will decide if a sales tax initiative should be presented to the voters in June.Although City Councilmember Mike Diaz is not a big proponent of bringing commercial cannabis into the city, he said it’s better if the city crafts its own set of regulations, instead of allowing the marijuana industry to pass its own regulations through a citizens’ initiative.A group called the Association of Cannabis Professionals is campaigning in several cities in San Diego County to legalize marijuana sales through the initiative process. Diaz said the initiative backed by the cannabis industry may not be stringent enough.“If you don’t regulate it enough, it’s bad for the community,” Diaz said.He said the goal is to work with city staff and other councilmembers “to come up with a plan that eliminates the black market portion and also protects the community.” Sasha Foo, last_img read more

ExISRO Chairman gets death threat from JeM for praising PM Modi on

first_imgIndian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chairman G. Madhavan Nair listens to Indian Minister of Overseas Affairs Vayalar Ravi prior to a felicitation ceremony in New Delhi on December 24, 2008. Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) felicitated officials of Chandrayan-1 team.PRAKASH SINGH/AFP/Getty Images [Representational Image]After the dreaded Pulwama terror attack by Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), the terrorist organisation has now sent a death threat to the former Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chairman G Madhavan Nair for supporting Prime Minister Narendra Modi in ASAT test.According to the reports, the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) officials received the letter from the mailbox at Nair’s Sasthamangalam residence in Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday. The letter was later handed over to the investigation agency by the CISF.The letter has warned the 75-year-old Nair from supporting PM Narendra Modi and if he continues to do so he will be killed. The threat came on the same day after he praised PM Modi for the announcement of the successful test-firing of India’s anti-satellite missile, Mission Shakthi.Madhavan Nair had joined the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) in October 2018. He confirmed that he had received a letter at his residence. “I have not read the letter but the investigation officers contacted me and divulged about the content of the letter,” he said, reports Indian Defence News.The former ISRO chairman had praised the Modi for the ASAT test and criticised the UPA government for their lack of political will as they did not allow this test earlier. “Now Modiji has taken the initiative and he had the political will and courage to say that we will do this. We have now demonstrated this to the whole world”, said Nair, adds the report.According to the Kerala police, the death threat came in a letter to the former ISRO chairman’s house with the militant group’s name mentioned on it. The letter has been sent to the forensic department for a high-profile examination and is awaiting the results.The police have registered a case and investigations are conducted by multiple agencies over the death threat on G Madhavan Nair.G Madhavan Nair is a Padma Bhushan and Padma Vibhushan awardee, who retired as the chairman of ISRO in 2009. He initiated and implemented the establishment of Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology in Thiruvananthapuram. He also led India’s first lunar orbiter mission, Chandrayaan-1.last_img read more

Qaeda enters Yemen towns after US raid

first_imgAl-Qaeda in Yemen overran three southern towns just days after a deadly US raid targeting its commanders, before withdrawing from two of them on Friday, officials said.The jihadists’ entry into the Abyan province towns of Loder, Shaqra and Ahwar came as the White House defended Sunday’s raid on an Al-Qaeda compound as a “success”, even though multiple civilians and a Navy SEAL were killed.Abyan has long been an Al-Qaeda stronghold and it was only through a major offensive backed by a Saudi-led coalition last summer that the government was able to drive its fighters out of the province’s main towns.But the jihadists have faced some opposition from ordinary Yemenis.”The Al-Qaeda fighters withdrew from Loder and Shaqra after protest demonstrations by residents,” a local government official said.”Residents made clear during the protests that they were ready to take up arms if necessary.”The jihadists’ entry into the two towns on Thursday evening was helped by a pullout by government forces angry over the late payment of their wages, a security official told AFP.”Our forces are also angry that they have not been provided with the weapons and other equipment to confront the jihadists, who have been stepping up their armed attacks,” the official said.Al-Qaeda fighters set up roadblocks around the towns and blew up two security service buildings.Saudi-led aircraft carried out two strikes on jihadist positions in Loder overnight, the official added.Al-Qaeda has taken advantage of nearly two years of fighting between government forces and Shiite rebels who control the capital Sanaa to entrench its presence in the south.Washington has kept up its long-running drone war against the jihadists but that has done little to dent their influence.Sunday’s raid on an Al-Qaeda compound in Baida province was the first such operation of Donald Trump’s presidency.Navy SEAL Team Chief Special Warfare Operator William “Ryan” Owens, 36, was killed and three other US troops were wounded in a fierce gunfight.And on Wednesday, the Pentagon acknowledged that several non-combatants, including children, had apparently been killed.A Yemeni provincial official said eight women and eight children died.The International Crisis Group think-tank warned on Thursday that operations like the Baida raid risked fanning hostility towards the United States among civilians, providing fertile ground for recruitment by Al-Qaeda.last_img read more

Kiip A WinWin for App Developers and Advertisers

first_img With smartphone owners now downloading more than 2 billion mobile applications every month, the app store gold rush is in full swing. But precious few software developers are striking it rich. As of late last year, developers had published close to a million apps optimized for devices running Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android–but for every juggernaut, like Angry Birds, there are a multitude of mobile games that earn only a few thousand dollars over the course of their life cycle.The problem is that consumers love playing mobile games, not paying for them. App search engine Chomp reports premium applications made up just 27 percent of Apple’s App Store downloads in November 2011 and a mere 3 percent of downloads from Google’s Android Market. That’s why so many mobile developers are turning to in-game purchases–like virtual currency and weapons–to boost their fortunes. Others are relying on revenue derived via in-game banner ads.Brian Wong believes there’s a better way. Kiip, the San Francisco-based company the 20-year-old co-founded in 2010, eschews conventional mobile advertising formats in favor of offering real-world rewards for virtual achievements. For example, a gamer who successfully advances to the next level of play is rewarded with coupons and freebies from Kiip partners like Dr Pepper, Carl’s Jr., 1-800-Flowers and Sephora. The solution also allows developers and advertisers to match higher-value rewards to higher-difficulty achievements, driving gamer engagement.”Traditional advertising has always had a bad rap. If you offer users something for free, they think, What’s the catch?” says Wong, who launched Kiip after a brief stint heading business development at social news website Digg. “Our message is about retention. We’re helping developers keep their user base engaged and happy. When I ask developers, ‘How are you thanking players?’ they get stumped. The answer is that you do that through rewards.”Kiip applies a complex system of algorithms, tags and consumer data to determine not only the optimal juncture to deliver rewards but also what kinds of prizes to offer, and how often. “We extract value from the moment,” Wong says. “[Rewards] depend on the game itself, along with other environmental factors, like where are you, what kind of gamer are you and who are you.”Advertisers pay Kiip only when a consumer accepts a reward offer, with fees ranging from 25 cents to $3 per interaction. The firm splits revenue 50-50 with the game’s developer. As of late 2011, Kiip had integrated into about 60 iOS and Android titles with a combined user base of more than 35 million. According to Wong, between 30 and 40 percent of gamers engage with Kiip reward offers, with an average of 1.7 million rewards delivered each month.”We help developers build a business around user retention and engagement,” Wong says. “Rewards help guarantee that people come back to the game and play it more often.”Look for the number of developers embracing Kiip to grow significantly in the months ahead: During the waning days of 2011, the startup inked a deal with GameSalad, a mobile-game development platform provider, to integrate its rewards network into GameSalad’s Creator authoring toolset. More than 200,000 developers have leveraged GameSalad solutions to build roughly 20,000 titles.Wong is already mulling over how to expand the Kiip model beyond gaming into other mobile-app categories and digital channels. “There’s applicability across different types of mobile apps, e-commerce and entertainment,” he says. “Say you’re running with the Nike+ app and you beat your last run time, so here’s a coupon for a free vitaminwater.”Even if you’re not a mobile-game developer–heck, even if you don’t know how to send a text message–Kiip is a company worth watching. Wong plans to simplify marketer access to the Kiip network during the months ahead, enabling local and national brands to automatically set up their own rewards campaigns.”All apps are location-aware. Location is a given now,” Wong says. “My goal is to offer rewards from businesses in your immediate area that are coming to you as a result of your actions within an app. You shouldn’t have to go into a store or check in, you just have to be in a contextually relevant location. Our rewards platform can exist anywhere there is an action–that’s why we’ve never had the words play or games in our name or our slogans. ‘Kiip them happy,’ that’s our tagline.” Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global 4 min read Register Now » March 9, 2012 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

She spoke on the theme of diversity and how to break down the barriers between various minorities, male-female, religion, national origin, etc. She gave many photo examples of how we pigeon hole people into neat categories and that we often say we have equally in society, however her images showed recent images of big political summits where there are no women present, or they were the secretaries in the background. She said in medical practice, department administration and collaboration on projects, people need to be cognoscente of bias they have engrained by culture for which they may not even be aware.She showed a slide of the AAPM membership makeup by generation and said members need to keep in mind the way each generation thinks and communicates varies by their generation’s life experience and upbringing. McCollough said understanding these differences can help bridge perceived gaps in communication. Find more news and videos from AAPM.

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.
