Air Museum dispute not the trusts first fight

first_imgThe National Park Service’s recent takeover of management at Pearson Air Museum from the Fort Vancouver National Trust generated protests, newspaper headlines and a congressional hearing on a bill that would, in effect, return the museum to the trust’s operation.Why all of this over a seemingly innocuous bureaucratic transfer?Though a small nonprofit group, the trust is led by Vancouver’s most influential residents and a battle-tested executive who knows how to orchestrate public opinion.“We’re just saying it’s our museum,” said Ed Lynch, one of the trust’s founders.The city of Vancouver has given the trust a great deal of power by contracting with the organization to not only manage Pearson Air Museum, but also Officers Row and other city-owned properties on the Fort Vancouver National Site.The trust reported $1.75 million in expenses and net assets of $3 million in 2011, the most recent federal tax filings available. Due to the vagaries of tax forms for nonprofit groups, the filings understate the annual operating budget, which the trust pins at $3.5 million.But perhaps the best illustration of the trust’s prominence may be CEO Elson Strahan’s paycheck. In 2011, he received a salary of $169,762 with an additional $52,927 in benefits.last_img read more

Paradise enjoys 151 revenue surge in 2018 as Macaus EGM demand grows

first_img RelatedPosts Macau’s Paradise Entertainment Limited saw revenue grow 15.1% to HK$1.16 billion (US$148.3 million) in the 12 months to 31 December 2018, with both its casino management and operations segment and sales of electronic gaming equipment and systems segment enjoying increases.Casino Kam Pek Paradise enjoyed the largest rise in real terms, with revenue for the year up almost HK$100 million, or 14.4%, to HK$780.2 million thanks to increases in traditional table games, Live Multi Games (LMG) and slot machines. Casino Waldo remained relatively flat at HK$286.7 million with table game revenue slightly down, but the company’s electronic gaming equipment and systems segment grew 156.7% to HK$97.3 million on the back of better unit sales.

Adjusted EBITDA from casinos under the group’s management rose 49.6% to HK$197.6 million, mainly due to the increase in total GGR generated by those casinos.Discussing the company’s prospects for 2019, Paradise said it expects demand to continue due to required upgrades to comply with new technical standards for electronic table games being introduced by 31 December 2019.“On the other hand, complementary LMG products such as the X-Stadium Live received new orders as customers praised its customizability and its captivating animation in the center of the mass gaming floors,” Paradise said.“Casino operators’ universal quest for more seats, fewer tables, lower minimum bets and higher yields translates into a future need for solutions that could help them achieve higher efficiency and to optimize their table yields.”last_img read more

Lexus RC F Track Edition teased on video ahead of Detroit Auto

first_img 68 Photos The introduction of the Track Edition coincides with the launch of a refreshed 2020 Lexus RC F coupe in general, Carter said previously. The current RC F, which packs a 5.0-liter V8 engine good for 467 horsepower and 389 pound-feet of torque, was introduced way back at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, so it’s high time for an update.The new Lexus models will make their debut in Detroit next Tuesday, and Lexus will offer a livestream of its press conference, starting at 1:10 p.m. Eastern, so fans far and wide can watch the reveal of the RC F and its new Track Edition. We’ll have all the details on the Lexus debuts — as well as every other Detroit introduction — here at Roadshow, too. 2019 Lexus RC gets a little nip and a little tuck Preview • Radically styled 2015 Lexus RC F is as fast as it looks More From Roadshow An earlier teaser image gave us an up-close look at the car’s rear wing. Lexus Lexus is once again teasing the arrival of a new Track Edition for the RC F sports coupe. With the car set to debut in less than a week at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, a new teaser video stokes anticipation with imagery of the new car on a track. The Track Edition, Lexus says, “turns hot laps all day… and heads all night.”Sadly, the teaser video doesn’t give us any other details, with the only big clue a glance at the car’s giant rear wing — something we already saw in Lexus’ earlier teasing. Still, we know there’s plenty of reason to get excited about the new car. Bob Carter, executive vice president of sales at Toyota Motor North America, told journalists in December that the Track Edition would be the “fastest, most powerful” Lexus model — aside from the LFA supercar. reading • Lexus RC F Track Edition teased on video ahead of Detroit Auto Show Detroit Auto Show 2019 Feb 4 • 2020 Kia Telluride: Detroit Auto Show debut turns Super Bowl ad star 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value Performance Cars Coupes 0 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better See All Share your voice Tags Jan 22 • Our highlights of the 2019 Detroit Auto Show More about 2015 Lexus RC F Feb 7 • Chevy’s full-scale Lego Silverado is plastic fantastic in Chicago May 14 • History of the Toyota Supra, a Japanese sports car legend 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous • Detroit Auto Show 2019 Lexus Post a comment Lexuslast_img read more

TPCC a worried lot over AICC leadership

first_imgHyderabad: As election of new president for the All India Congress Committee taking new turns with each passing day, the Telangana Congress leaders are worried, and they are on tenterhooks about the leadership issue. Though the party leaders expected that the Congress Working Committee would meet during this week to elect the new president, their hopes had evaporated. Party leaders said that the CWC may meet next week. Also Read – TSBB, NGC promotes eco-friendly Ganeshas Advertise With Us Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee treasurer Gudur Narayana Reddy said Rahul Gandhi may consider the demand to appoint a committee to elect AICC president. He said even Rahul may leave the selection of the new president to the Working Committee without referring it to the committee. “It all depends on the decision of Rahul Gandhi,” he said. Also Read – CM KCR praises PRO for his books on Telangana Advertise With Us Meanwhile, AICC member G Niranjan addressed a letter to Congress senior leader and United Progressive Alliance chairperson Sonia Gandhi to take initiative to break the stalemate. In the letter, he said the Congress workers have full faith in the leadership of her as she was responsible for bringing back the glory to the party by taking over the reins in 1998. Advertise With Us He said Sonia Gandhi had taken the responsibility when everyone was in doubt about the future of the party. Once again similar situation has arisen with the decision of Rahul Gandhi to resign to the post of Congress presidentship. Niranjan said the uncertainty is affecting the morale of the cadre and the opponents are taking advantage and turning it in their favour. It is evident that no Congress Working Committee member is in a mood to play their role effectively to pull the party out from the present chaos. He said that the uncertainty over the leadership at the top level affected the results in the recent ZPTC and MPTC elections in Telangana State and the workers are afraid that it may affect Congress’s prospects in ensuing Municipal and Corporation elections also. He requested Sonia Gandhi to take initiative in convening the meeting of Congress Working Committee to choose a suitable leader to head the party at this crucial juncture in the larger interests of the party and to save the democracy in the country.last_img read more

City of Heroes is now free to play

first_imgOf all the MMOs I have played, City of Heroes remains one of the most enjoyable. Released in 2004 it was very popular due to the fact you could create your very own superhero. So good were the options for creating and developing your character that Marvel took offence and sued both publisher NCSoft and developer Cryptic Studios. I think that should be taken as a compliment as to how well they implemented the superhero aspect of the game.Jump forward seven years and City of Heroes has been re-released as a free-to-play game carrying the new name City of Heroes Freedom. Regardless of the name, this is the original game, but with all the content that has been released over those seven years. That includes 21 Issues (content and feature updates) plus the merging of follow-up game City of Villains.Although you can play for free, NCSoft still wants to return a profit on the game, so has included both subscription options and in-game content purchasing. There are actually three types of account: Free, Premium, and VIP. The Free account is for new players, the Premium account is for existing players who get to keep their existing content and have a bit more freedom in terms of features. Finally, the VIP account is paid-for and costs $14.99 a month.Differences between the accounts comes down to features and content. Paying for VIP access gets your 14 archetypes instead of 8, 150+ power sets instead of 100, and a lot more costumes and auras to choose from. Additional content is also freely accessible including City of Heroes Going Rogue, exclusive access to missions known as Signature Story Arcs, and access to the Incarnate System, which includes end-game raids and abilities above the 50 cap everyone else plays to.As with all free-to-play models, you can try the game without spending a dime. If you like it and play regularly, then the subscription makes the most sense in terms of having access to the full game experience.There’s a full rundown of the differences between the accounts over at the City of Heroes Freedom website. Getting access to the game is a simple matter of signing up for an account and downloading the client.last_img read more

This must be the biggest Windows Blue Screen of Death ever seen

first_imgThe Blue Screen of Death has been around for more than 20 years. You’ve probably seen one or two before, but you’ve never seen one quite this big.That massive video wall (probably around 50 feet tall) you see below graces the entrance to CentralFestival, a shopping mall in Pattaya, Thailand. Blake Sibbit happened to be outside when the Windows-powered signage tripped over itself and captured this awesome image.We’re going to assume this isn’t part of some kind of clever, geeky advertising campaign. It certainly doesn’t look like it, especially with ftser2k.sys called out as the culprit. That particular file has to do with a USB-connected serial device, and those are pretty commonly used with signage systems. This one just happened to run into something it couldn’t handle and decided if it was going down it was taking Windows with it.It’s not quite as cool as seeing Nine Inch Nails perform in front of a Blue Screen of Death when they did it almost a decade ago (it was put there intentionally according to Trent Reznor).You may not have seen it yet, but Microsoft finally gave the BSOD a makeover for Windows 8. Instead of all that messy, nerdy stuff it’s now a big, frowny emoticon and a bit of plain English that’s probably not quite so frightening to the average Windows user. We haven’t seen one of those pop up in such spectacular fashion just yet, but give it time.last_img read more

Fair to showcase intimate apparel

first_imgTaking Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recently launched “Make in India” initiative forward, the Intimate Apparel Association of India (IAAI) will hold a two-day trade fair that will focus on intimate wear manufacturing in India. Santosh Kumar Gangwar, Minister of State for Textiles (Independent Charge)will inaugurate the exhibition. The Joint Secretary for Textile Exports, Sunaina Tomar and Arti Mehra, General Secretary, BJP, will also be present. The exhibition will be held at Crowne Plaza, Rohini on August 26 and 27. This year, in the fourth edition of India’s biggest intimate apparel trade fair, Galleria Intima, one of the focal points is the development of the intimate apparel sector of the country—to make it emerge as the next major hub of intimate wear manufacturing. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The show will focus on the strengths of the Indian industry that can be leveraged to position India as a leading manufacturing destination for intimate wear. The event will showcase all the elements of intimate apparel such as fibres, laces, hooks and overall packaging. It is expected to draw visitors from a wide variety of sectors including brand owners, manufacturers of intimate wear, designers, export houses, large format retailers and online retailers. More than 1000 brands from India alone are expected to visit along with 80 exhibitors from 10 plus countries.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixAbout 15 Chinese companies are also expected to participate, bringing with them their storehouse of raw materials, making the fourth Galleria Intima exhibition, an all-encompassing platform for intimate apparel.At Galleria Intima 2015, the central aim would be to proceed with  Make In India initiative and sell the “Made in India” products in the International market as well as derive the benefit of increasing domestic consumption.India’s global trade of apparels for the financial year 2013 stood at $379 billion, out of which only nine per cent of this total outcome was occupied by the intimate wear category, thus highlighting the immense untapped opportunity this sector represents.  The intimate apparel category includes a vast range of clothing items, varying from lingerie, underwear, loungewear and nightwear to shape-wear, swimwear, socks, stockings and more. India has seen a remarkable growth in exports through the years as well, with intimate wear accounting for $1.2 billion in the financial year 2013, a contribution of 4 per cent of total global trade in the intimate apparel category.India has an abundance of raw materials as well as a large pool of inexpensive workforce to provide cost effective solutions to lingerie manufacturing. Not only this, India also presents a growing middle-class, fashion-conscious consumer market that demands top quality products from well-established global brands.last_img read more

New Stroke Training Model Improves Access to LifeSaving Care

first_img Videos | Interventional Radiology | June 26, 2019 VIDEO: How Alexa Might Help During Interventional Radiology Procedures Kevin Seals, M.D.,… read more March 27, 2019 — Training interventional radiologists to perform endovascular thrombectomies results in positive outcomes for patients experiencing stroke, according to a study presented at the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) Annual Scientific Meeting, March 23-28 in Austin, Texas.1 Expanding access to this treatment provides patients timely access to this gold-standard treatment.“With a limited availability of providers, thrombectomy is only available to 2 to 3 percent of eligible patients in the United States,” said Kelvin Hong, M.D., FSIR, associate professor and division chief of interventional radiology at Johns Hopkins University. “Patients don’t plan where and when they have a stroke. Our model of training board-certified interventional radiologists can expand access to quality, evidence-based care, and reduce the lifelong disability associated with stroke.”Thrombectomy — a treatment that clears a clogged artery in the brain — increases the survival rates among those suffering an acute ischemic stroke, reduces the likelihood of resulting disabilities and speeds function recovery. However, to gain these benefits, thrombectomies must be initiated and performed quickly. Many hospitals do not have providers available to perform these treatments and must transfer patients to a facility where they can get this care, losing valuable time.To determine an efficient and sustainable way to expand access to thrombectomy, researchers from Johns Hopkins University developed an interventional radiology stroke team at Suburban Hospital, a community hospital in Montgomery County, Md., a suburb of Washington, D.C. The team consisted of four interventional radiologists who were specially trained by a neurointerventional radiologist for six months. The entire team was available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with the neurointerventional radiologist helicoptered to the hospital for every case during this training period.“We looked to change the dynamic in stroke care, where instead of transporting medically fragile patients, we brought in a specialist to perform this care and build the infrastructure necessary to provide this treatment to a community with limited stroke care resources,” said Ferdinand Hui, M.D., a neurointerventional radiologist and associate professor of radiology and radiological science at Johns Hopkins University. “In a situation where every minute counts, we wanted to design our program to provide the training and organization necessary to bring 24/7 highly trained stroke interventionalists online as quickly as possible.”Once the interventional radiologists were conducting the treatments independently, researchers measured the technical success of the thrombectomies performed by the newly trained physicians in 35 stroke cases using the Thrombolysis in Cerebral Infarction (TICI) scale. They found no significant differences compared to the 2016 HERMES meta-analysis2 of endovascular thrombectomy outcomes performed by other practitioners, such as neurointerventional radiologists and neurosurgeons. Additionally, 14 percent mortality in the first 90 days after the procedure was similar to 15.3 percent 90-day mortality among patients at stroke centers evaluated through the Journal of the American Medical Association-published HERMES trial.3 The median interval from symptom onset to the point when blood flow was restored was 325 minutes, compared to 285 minutes in previous research.Researchers plan to further evaluate the technical outcomes and time metrics in a second-year study, with a goal of further reducing the time to treat each patient by improving efficiency and optimization year over year.A limitation of the study may be in whether hospitals of varying sizes and resources can reproduce the program with the same outcomes. The research team plans to re-evaluate the program after two years of data collection.For more information: www.sirmeeting.orgRelated Stroke ContentVIDEO: Creating and Operating a Mobile Stroke UnitNorthwestern Medicine Mobile Stroke Unit Delivers Life-Saving Care 30 Minutes Sooner References1.

Go back to the enewsletter This year more than 6

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterThis year, more than 6000 attendees from 73 countries, including over 1300 international and domestic travel buyers and over 500 media from the US and abroad, including LATTE, attended the US Travel Association’s 48th annual IPW.The event, which is the largest single generator of travel to the US, convened in New Orleans, Louisiana, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.Over the course of five days, a record of over 105,000 pre-scheduled business meetings were conducted between travel buyers and US travel supplier organisations, who purchased a total of 1352 booths.Thank you New OrleansAccording to the independent research firm Rockport Analytics, travel initiated by IPW is projected to bring $4.7 billion in direct bookings to US destinations over the next three years.The delegate count at this year’s IPW represents a 20 per cent increase since the last time the conference was held in New Orleans, in 2002. In addition to the usual robust number of delegates from the UK, Canada, Mexico, Germany and France, this year’s IPW saw tremendous growth in delegates from China, Taiwan, South Korea, Chile and Colombia.The real pay-off for IPW will ripple through the local New Orleans economy for an estimated three years following this year’s event. IPW is expected to generate $1.7 billion in economic impact to the city of New Orleans and attract more than one million additional visitors to the New Orleans area during that time.Excitement and entertainment every nightIPW is renowned for its vibrant gala events, and this year was no exception. During ‘Carnival Around The World’, the Sunday evening event at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, the New Orleans Conventions & Visitors Bureau and Brand USA entertained attendees with music, food, cocktails and a Mardi Gras parade. The closing event, ‘Tastes and Tunes of Louisiana’, invited guests to dine on the banks of the Mississippi River, organised by the Louisiana Office of Tourism and Brand USA.On Monday, Brand USA hosted an opening lunch graced with a performance by Gladys Knight. Sponsored by NYC & Company and Broadway Inbound, Tuesday’s event brought some of Broadway’s biggest and best shows to the stage. On Wednesday, The Bare Naked Ladies raised the bar with a rock show, sponsored by Experience Kissimmee, Florida and Universal Orlando Resort.Stay open and connectedNoting the recent events in Orlando and the terror attacks in Brussels, Paris, Nice and Istanbul, speakers at IPW recognised and discussed the problems facing the international travel trade.“IPW is a wonderful, unique event in that it brings the world to the US in one location,” said US Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow. “We remain dedicated to welcoming ever more international visitors to our country, and maintain that encouraging travel to the US is the best way to keep us open and connected to the world.”Noting that current global concerns make it more important than ever to promote and foster international travel, he continued: “The world is ever more connected and complex, but it is impossible to insulate ourselves from risk … We must not retreat out of fear.”The US Travel Association, according to Dow, will carry on with its mission to increase travel to and within the US: “America is not a fortress and it should not be. It would be dangerous and costly to try to cut ourselves off from the world. We stand our best chance to achieve security and prosperity when travellers, and indeed all of us, choose freedom over fear.”The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) – online application for visitors to the States – is one way to maintain openness.World Travel & Tourism Council president and CEO David Scowsill said the VWP is “much more safe than manual visa processing”. His comment came amidst calls to suspend the programme.“Market the Welcome”An important initiative in response to these concerns is the “Market the Welcome” campaign. The programme was developed in response to negative perceptions of the arrival experience at US airports, said Brand USA President and CEO Chris Thompson.Comprising welcoming and informational signage, the programme is designed to provide travellers a warm and seamless arrival experience from the moment they enter the airport and continuing on as they proceed through immigration and passport control, and baggage claim.“One of the things we realised was that in the arrival halls of a lot of our airports, the experience is very stoic and not very welcoming,” he said.In time for the IPW 2016, the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport became the fourth airport in the nation to implement the campaign. The other airports that have implemented the campaign are the Miami International Airport, Chicago-O’Hare International Airport and Minneapolis-St Paul International Airport.“The United States wants more legitimate travellers to visit the US and experience all our great nation has to offer,” says Executive Director of the National Travel and Tourism Office at the US Department of Commerce, Kelly Craighead. “Knowing that a first impression is a lasting impression, we have set our sights on providing the best arrivals experience in the world to all of our international visitors, while simultaneously maintaining the highest standards of national security.” IPW raffle winners announced!San Francisco Travel hosted its annual IPW San Francisco evening party this year and, as always, it was a fun event that ended on a high note.

all came alive in the campus of South Indian Education Society (SIES) school at King Circle Models of these and other different types of forests across the world were recreated by 400 students and teachers of SIES as part of their three-day forest exhibition called ‘Vana Mahotsavam’ It took almost a months’ hard work for the students and teachers to complete these models that were inaugurated

Cordillera Montagne Haunted Forests Agro Forests etc Besides the forest models several pictures and charts depicting various forests have also been created The interesting part of the exhibition however was the two guests or ‘Forest man’ as they are popularly known — Jadav Payeng from Assam and Abdul Kareem from Kasargod district in Kerala — who have created huge forests single-handedly in their states Hailing from Assamese tribal community ‘Mishing’ 52-year-old Payeng is a recipient of Padma Shri award and has converted 1360 acres of land into jungle by planting bamboos The forest is now home to Bengal tigers Indian rhinoceros over hundreds of deer rabbits apes around 100 elephants and several species of birds Payeng lives in a small hut in the forest with his wife and three children “Instead of collecting donations each school student should be asked to plant one saplings per year and should be increased by an additional saplings for the next five years At the end of these five years you will see the difference as students will start taking interest in protecting the plants” said Payeng Kareem 68 too created a forest all by himself by converting 32 acres of land It was his determination to create a green cover that he converted a barren and rocky wasteland on a hillock in Puliyamkulam in Kasargod into “Kareem’s forest” Kareem said he had invested his earnings from what he earned in Gulf into creating and nurturing this forest He had constructed small houses there for Adivasi villagers “I now plan to use this land to build cottages and give it free of charge to those students who are interested in environment management and maintaining the forest I live locally but think globally” said Kareem mumbainewsline@expressindiacom For all the latest Mumbai

India The CAG report on the 2G spectrum allocation provided a credible basis both for the CBI investigation and the hearings of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of the Parliament Similarlythe CAG report on multiple irregularities related to the Commonwealth Games has proved embarrassing for the government CAGs report on the Adarsh housing scam in Maharashtra adds to the woes of a beleagured government On the horizon are reports on the working of the civil aviation and petroleum ministries on the purchase of aircrafts and cost overruns on production-sharing contracts Questions are being asked as to whether the CAG has overstepped its constitutional powers Aspersions are also being cast as to whether these reports are setting the agenda of the national dialogue We must understand the role and obligations of the CAG under the Constitution of India and in light of the fact that separation of powers is one of the basic features of the Constitution It can be nobodys case that everything that the CAG says is gospel truth As the principal auditorit is his obligation to point out deviations and irregularities as he perceives and it is for the concerned ministry or institution to replyrespondcorrect and initiate follow up action wherever appropriate Sensationalising the CAGs findings not only politicises a constitutional entity but distracts from the objectivity of his findings There are however many other issues relating to the working of the CAG Firstthe CAG has performed the constitutional mandate given to him The CAG is the guardian of the public purse for both the Centre and the states This is the reason why Dr BR Ambedkar said that the CAG shall be the most important officer under the Constitution of India The enormous growth in the size and complexity of government budget also has a bearing on the duties of the CAG Secondunlike many other countries like JapanNew ZealandAustralia and Francethe CAG in India mainly performs the function of ex-post audit Many regretfully describe it as a dissection well after rigor mortis has set in Unfortunatelyit doesnt have the legal power to enforce action on its findingsrecover losses of government money and property and initiate action against delinquent officials Thirdthe National Commission to Review the Working of the Constitution had recommended the creation of a multi-member audit commission on the lines of Election Commissionwhose members may have the same constitutional status and terms of service as the CAG A similar position already exists in other countries like JapanFranceGermanySouth Korea in the form of audit boards or audit courts Fourththe Constitution of India visualised the CAG to be both comptroller as well as auditor-general Howeverin practicethe CAG is only fulfilling the role of an auditor-general and not that of a comptroller The government by an executive order assigned the role of the comptroller on the Controller General of Defence Accounts Howeverthe constitutional obligation of acting as a comptroller rests only with the CAGa function which he has unfortunately not discharged In this respectthe CAG of India differs from the CAG of Britainwhich has powers and functions of both comptroller as well as the auditor-general Fifththe Constitution does not lay down any qualifications for the appointment of the CAG and does not prescribe any procedure for making the appointment except that the CAG shall be appointed by the President of India In the UKthe appointment of the CAG is ratified by the House of Commons on the recommendation of the PM made in agreement with the chairman of the PAC Sixththere is no system of external audit of the CAG in India External audit of the office of the CAG exists in the UK based on the principle that the agency that audits other outfits should itself demonstrate professional soundness and efficiency Seventhit is believed that CAG has recommended some two years ago for amending the Act of 1971 to widen its scope with growing number of public-private partnerships and the spending by local bodies largely remaining outside its purview Finallythe CAG is an examining agency and not an investigating one and nor does it have the sweeping powers like some other functional democracies It is expected to consider the efficiencyeconomy and effectiveness of all public expenditures and revenue and is the
