World Bank urges action to open markets to developing countries

On the eve of this weekend’s joint World Bank/International Monetary Fund (IMF) annual meeting, senior officials from the financial institutions called for rich nations to open their markets to goods from developing countries. “Improving market access for developing countries is one of the most important steps that the rich countries could take to help fight global poverty,” World Bank Chief Economist Nicholas Stern said. Barriers faced by developing countries include tariff peaks and quotas, massive agricultural subsidies, and product standards that the Bank charges are applied arbitrarily and bureaucratically. Meanwhile, developing countries also pursue protectionist polices that impede their own growth and poverty reduction. Many policy makers in high-income countries understand these issues and have proposed measures to further open their markets, but progress has been too slow. “Now is the time for action,” Mr. Stern said. Speaking to reporters in Washington, D.C., the President of the World Bank, James Wolfensohn, agreed on the need to move from theory to practice. “The central thrust of this [weekend’s] meeting is going to be on the thrust of now making effective what we are doing and scaling up what we are doing, because without scaling up, we are not going to meet the development targets,” he said. Noting that the year 2015 – the target date set by the UN for reaching numerous anti-poverty and development goals – is “down the street,” Mr. Wolfensohn said. “There is no more time to waste on argument about how you do it; we have to get into doing it, and doing it with accountability and with transparency.” read more

Animal diseases could lead to world trade losses of 10 billion in

With disease outbreaks such as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) and bird flu affecting about a third of global meat exports, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) warned today of losses of up to $10 billion in the $33-billion-a-year meat and live animal trade if import bans extend throughout 2004. The losses, likely to accrue to the 12 countries facing export bans or market constrains as a result of disease concerns, do not include the costs of disease control measures, losses to producers and consumers through destabilized markets and fluctuating prices, and the general costs to the industry, the Rome-based agency said. The impact of the current bird flu epidemic in Asia on small poultry producers may be considerable, with over 100 million birds estimated to have died or been culled over the past two months. In particular, producers in export-dependent countries like Thailand, which has culled some 36 million birds or 25 per cent of its domestic flocks, will increasingly lose income as local prices drop sharply.In the case of BSE, countries around the world have banned beef imports from the United States and Canada, which account for more than a quarter of global beef exports (around 1.6 million tons, valued at approximately $4 billion). US beef exports, after reaching 1.2 million tons in 2003, are expected to drop to 100,000 tons in 2004 if bans remain in place for the entire year, the US Department of Agriculture estimates. Both Canada and the US, accounting for 4 million tons or 50 per cent of world exports of poultry meat, as well as nine Asian countries, have documented bird flu outbreaks. While these have not been reported in commercial flocks in North America, a prolonged ban on exports, which constitute 15 percent of US production, will put downward pressure on all of the country’s meat prices. As a result of poultry and beef import bans, FAO expects demand for substitutes such as pork to increase significantly. This is already visible in Japan where shortages of beef and chicken have led to a 40 per cent surge in pig-meat prices in February. read more

BBC art historian says galleries prevent visitors taking phone photos so they

A BBC art historian has said art galleries prevent visitors taking phone photographs so they can sell more tea-towels and postcards, after he was told off for photographing an exhibit at the National Gallery in Scotland.Dr Bendor Grosvenor, who was an art historian for Fake or Fortune, posted a picture of a waving hand obstructing his iPhone’s view of a Rembrandt painting, and wrote: “I’d love to be able to show you how excellent the new ⁦@NatGalleriesSco⁩ Rembrandt exhibition is. But at the merest hint of my iPhone, an assistant rushed over to say no photos allowed, and demand that I delete the photo I’d taken (of his hand).”He told The Telegraph that the rules are in place for licensing reasons, so galleries can sell more merchandise.The art writer explained: “What museums do is they try and raise the revenue by selling image licenses by reproducing their photos. If ordinary punters take photos then they think that stops their ability to do that. But someone taking a picture on their iPhone isn’t going to start making up tea-towels.”–– ADVERTISEMENT ––Dr Grosvenor argued that museums could be shooting themselves in the foot with this rule, because social media posts of paintings can drum up excitement for an exhibition. He said the ban is “all about copyright and museum revenue and income,” explaining:  “The copyright issue is essentially about the work of living artists but not an issue for Rembrandt. Dr Grosvenor and I thought Rembrandt would love it, he would see it as a great commercial marketing initiative.”Dr Schama said he often is “followed around” galleries by guards when he comes to the UK because he takes photographs.He said being told off for taking pictures is “quite aggravating and not doing that makes for a much happier gallery experience.” He explained: “Of course, if you think about it, every person in that exhibition these days is a little advertising agent for that exhibition, I just wanted to tweet a little photograph from inside the exhibition and show how excellent the exhibition was, so people would go.  If they don’t want me to do that then that’s their loss. “I was in the National Gallery the other day and the only noise you could hear was the poor guard moving around saying ‘No photos! No photos!’’. Museums and galleries are often the slowest to move with the times.”Civilisations presenter Dr Simon Schama agreed, and said photographs should only be banned in the case of “obnoxious selfie sticks” which block the view.Dr Schama told The Telegraph: “There are some obnoxious things that I don’t think should be there like selfie sticks or taking selfies in front of paintings. I wouldn’t mind banning that. But for people to take photos of details of the works of art, I honestly can’t see what the problem is at all.” Rembrandt no longer bothered by this, or so I heard https://t.co/iqPn7FLaSD— Simon Schama (@simon_schama) July 17, 2018 “They can be fantastic research tools if you want to see how the paint lies on the painting. I do that all the time. Then you have a photo archive to work with. You can see it in much more detail than on an online picture.”A spokesperson for the National Galleries of Scotland told The Telegraph: “Visitors to the National Galleries of Scotland are welcome to take photographs or video for personal, non-commercial use. All other uses require prior permission from National Galleries of Scotland.“Photography is usually not permitted in special exhibitions which include works that do not belong to NGS. This is primarily because many lenders (private and public) understandably require us to restrict or ban photography of the works that they have entrusted to our care. Photography within the permanent collection may also be restricted for some loaned works of art, as indicated by a ‘Please do not photograph’ notice on wall labels of certain works.” The historian added: “You can, providing you’re not obnoxious and get in the way, you can take photos of tiny details of brushwork that you wouldn’t get on a postcard. Dr Simon Schama said he frequently takes photographs at galleries for his workCredit:Jay Williams Dr Simon Schama said he frequently takes photographs at galleries for his work The irony is that the painting I wanted to tell you about belongs to the @rijksmuseum, who are delighted for anyone to take photos of their objects and share them.— Dr Bendor Grosvenor (@arthistorynews) July 17, 2018 Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Former SNP MP Tasmina AhmedSheikh guilty of professional misconduct

Alan Mickel at the hearing in PerthCredit:PA alan mickel Ms Ahmed-Sheikh held the title of cash room manager at Hamilton Burns before her resignation in May 2015, when she was elected MP for Ochil and South Perthshire. She lost the seat in the 2017 general election.She now works with Mr Salmond, the former first minister, on his talk show on the Kremlin-backed RT channel.She said after the hearing that for nearly two years she had endured “smear and innuendo” and claimed that during the 2017 election campaign a series of leaks suggested she was being “charged with financial impropriety and that funds had been taken from a vulnerable individual”.She added: ”Now it is admitted on all sides that there was no impropriety whatsoever and the trust has suffered no loss whatsoever. I am pleased that the tribunal has decided to impose the lower penalty of censure rather than striking off.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Ms Ahmed-Sheikh with Mr Salmond in LondonCredit:Elliott Franks tasmina An inspection of the firm raised concerns in October 2015 and Mr Mickel resigned that December. A former Nationalist MP has been fined £3,000 after being found guilty of professional misconduct while she was a partner at a law firm.Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh, Alex Salmond’s broadcasting partner, admitted failings at a disciplinary tribunal.She faced a Law Society inquiry with Alan Mickel, her ex-colleague at the now defunct firm Hamilton Burns, amid concerns over money taken out of a trust that was set up in 2012 on behalf of his sister.The hearing was told he believed it was a “private family matter”, but in legal terms should have been considered as a client of the firm. Loans made to the struggling law firm from the trust were said to constitute a conflict of interest.The Law Society said Ms Ahmed-Sheikh and Mr Mickel showed “disregard for the rules” when they failed to keep proper accounts of the trust and when sums were borrowed.It said their actions constituted a conflict of interest and risked undermining public confidence in the profession.The Scottish Solicitors’ Discipline Tribunal in Perth found both guilty of professional misconduct, fined them each £3,000 and found them liable for the expenses of the Law Society.However, they avoided being struck off and it was agreed that their belief that the trust was not a client of the firm was “genuine but erroneous”, and that there was no suggestion of dishonesty or personal benefit. The panel heard 50-year-old Mr Mickel hoped to relocate to England and become a barrister. read more

Kennedy bust funded by Sunday Telegraph readers spirited away following vandalism charity

A bust of John F Kennedy funded by Sunday Telegraph readers has been “spirited away” following vandalism, prompting a charity to call for its reinstatement. In 1964 a busy of the assassinated US President John F Kennedy was erected in London. However in 2017 it became the target of what one charity has dubbed “some malevolent imbecile” who vandalised it and triggered its removal from Marylebone Road in a bid to restore it.However the bronze bust of the 35th US president, who has stood near Great Portland Street station for more than 40 years, has remained in storage ever since. Now The Royal Fine Art Commission Trust is calling for its return to its rightful plinth. In a letter to the Sunday Telegraph, Stephen Bayley, Chairman, The Royal Fine Art Commission Trust, wrote: “Sculpted by Jacques Lipchitz and unveiled by Robert Kennedy, it stood on its black granite plinth facing the Marylebone Road until, in 2017, some malevolent imbecile vandalised it and it was removed for restoration.“It has now been reinstated – not on its original site and plinth but out of sight and under cover in a nearby back street, supposedly for “security reasons”. The polished granite plinth, which is on Marylebone Road – but is currently headless Credit:collect/collect Robert Bargery, director of The Royal Fine Art Commission Trust, describes the bust as having been “spirited away” and said that its removal from the plinth “compounds the vandalism”.“What greater damage can be done to it than just disappearing?” he added. “It needs to be where people can be proud of it rather than be frightened of the consequences.”“It seems a little bit craven to give up and put it round the corner rather than where Kennedy unveiled it.”The bust was erected two years after President Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas in 1963.It was paid for by readers of the Sunday Telegraph who responded to an appeal for a monument to mark the President in London. They raised more than £50,000.It was cast by the renowned sculpture, Lipchitz, and unveiled by the late president’s brother Robert F Kennedy, who was himself assassinated in 1968.In response Martin Chalker, chief executive of International Students House, said: “The bust is not in a backstreet – it’s in the main entrance for everyone to see. When the bust was vandalised, the culprit also tried to steal it and the police have CCTV evidence showing this.  “We as IHS were asked to be custodians and we insure it. It’s insured for £250,000 and we had a discussion with our insurers and they suggested we put it somewhere safer and, as a result, we put it in the front entrance to the house.” The polished granite plinth, which is on Marylebone Road - but is currently headless  “Its present guardians, International Students House, should put it back where it was meant to be, in a prominent position where it was seen by thousands of passers-by every day. As a matter of principle, we should never allow vandals to cow us into hiding away our tributes to great men.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Lèpre symptômes mécanismes et traitements où en eston

first_imgLèpre : symptômes, mécanismes et traitements, où en est-on ?Du 25 au 27 janvier 2013, se tient la 60e Journée mondiale des Lépreux organisée par la Fondation Raoul Follereau. L’occasion de sensibiliser la population à cette maladie, qui continue de faire des milliers de victimes, et de collecter des fonds pour poursuivre le combat.La lèpre également appelée “maladie de Hansen” est une pathologie infectieuse due à la bactérie Mycobacterium leprae. Connue depuis l’Antiquité, elle s’attaque aux nerfs périphériques, à la peau et aux muqueuses, jusqu’à causer de sévères infirmités si elle n’est pas traitée. Elle s’avère alors particulièrement invalidante. Bien qu’elle soit peu contagieuse, la lèpre fait chaque année plus de 200.000 nouveaux cas, parmi lesquels plus de 20.000 enfants, selon les chiffres de l’Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS). Mais ce sont aujourd’hui des millions de personnes qui vivent avec des séquelles causées par la lèpre principalement en Asie du sud-est, en Afrique et en Amérique. Si les mécanismes de transmission de la bactérie restent relativement flous, la maladie en elle-même est bien mieux connue. Les médecins ont ainsi déterminé qu’il existe plusieurs formes de lèpre : la lèpre tuberculoïde (la plus fréquente), la lèpre lépromateuse ainsi que plusieurs formes intermédiaires. Les premiers symptômes visibles sont des taches dépigmentées et sèches sur la peau qui devient insensible à ces endroits précis (anesthésie).  Toutefois, les premiers signes de la maladie peuvent apparaitre des années après l’infection par la bactérie, le temps d’incubation étant particulièrement lent (5 ans en moyenne). Sans traitement, les lésions vont peu à peu progresser et également s’attaquer aux nerfs, aux membres et aux yeux, en fonction de la forme de lèpre. Les atteintes peuvent alors devenir permanentes et conduire à des troubles sévères, des paralysies et des infirmités définitives. Un traitement antibiotique efficace Pendant longtemps, le seul traitement contre la lèpre a consisté à exclure les malades et les réunir dans des lieux d’isolement. Puis des médecins ont découvert que certaines huiles végétales (l’huile de chaulmoogra et l’huile de Tamanu) étaient efficaces pour traiter la maladie. La lèpre étant d’origine bactérienne, les spécialistes se sont ensuite tournés vers des antibiotiques qui ont depuis, permis de guérir des millions de malades. En 1981, l’Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS) a ainsi recommandé une thérapie composée de trois antibiotiques comme traitement de référence contre la lèpre.Composé de dapsone, de rifampicine et de clofazimine, le traitement est capable de détruire la bactérie et de guérir les malades en 6 à 12 mois (en fonction de la gravité). Il doit cependant être administré suffisamment tôt pour faire disparaitre les lésions et éviter les mutilations. Si elle ne peut réparer les invalidités constituées, cette trithérapie représente le moyen le plus sûr et le plus efficace actuellement pour tuer la bactérie : plus de 14 millions de lépreux ont été guéris au cours des 25 dernières années. Le risque de rechute est faible. Il n’existe aucun vaccin qui puisse prévenir la maladie, bien que la recherche continue pour mieux comprendre le fonctionnement de la bactérie. Prolonger les efforts pour éviter que la maladie n’émerge de nouveauÀ lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?”Il est indiscutable que la lutte contre la lèpre a enregistré des résultats encourageants. Aujourd’hui, nous disposons de traitements très efficaces et accessibles, même si la bataille n’est pas encore gagnée ; il faut maintenir les activités de lutte contre la lèpre pendant encore des décennies, sans quoi nous risquons de voir cette maladie devenir ré-émergente dans les 20 ans à venir…”, a expliqué dans un communiqué le Docteur Christian Johnson, médecin conseil de la Fondation Raoul Follereau qui lutte contre la lèpre depuis sa création en 1968. Actuellement, cette fondation soutient 211 programmes menés dans 25 pays pour assurer aux lépreux des soins de qualité, former le personnel soignant, développer des activités de prévention des invalidités et appuyer la recherche.

Nipah virus death toll in India jumps to 10

first_imgAnimal Husbandry department and Forest officials deposit a bat into a container after catching it inside a well at Changaroth in Kozhikode in the Indian state of Kerala on 21 May, 2018. Photo: AFPThe death toll from an outbreak of the rare Nipah virus in southern India jumped to 10 Tuesday with more than 90 people quarantined to try to stem the spread of the disease, officials said.With tests from other suspect deaths awaited, authorities in Kerala state have ordered emergency measures to control the virus, which is spread by fruit bats.Three of the fatalities are members of the same family — dead bats were found in a well at their home. A nurse who treated one of the family has also died, leaving a heart-wrenching note for her family.”We sent 18 samples for testing. Out of these 12 tested positive. Ten of those who tested positive have died and the remaining two are undergoing treatment,” a health official in Kerala’s Kozhikode district, the centre of the outbreak, told AFP.Ninety-four people who have come into contact with those who died have been isolated in their homes.”They have been quarantined as a precaution,” Kerala state health surveillance officer K.J. Reena told AFP.Nipah has killed more than 260 people in Malaysia, Bangladesh and India since 1998 and has a mortality rate of nearly 70 percent, according to the World Health Organisation.There is no vaccination for the virus which induces flu-like symptoms that lead to an agonising encephalitis and coma.The WHO has named Nipah as one of the eight priority diseases that could cause a global epidemic, alongside the likes of Ebola and Zika.- Nurse hailed -Among the dead in the Kerala outbreak was nursing assistant and mother-of-two Lini Puthussery, who had helped to treat one of the original family suffering from Nipah.Puthussery died on Monday and was cremated before her family members could bid her a final goodbye because of fears the virus could spread.In a final note she scribbled in a hospital isolation unit, she urged her husband to take care of the children.”I don’t think I will be able to see you again. Sorry. Please take care of our children,” she said.Kerala state Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said Puthussery’s “selfless service will be remembered”.He also said many professionals had expressed their willingness to work in Nipah affected areas. “The government of Kerala welcomes their service,” he said on Twitter.Health authorities across the state were on high alert, setting up medical camps and a control room to tackle the emerging situation.They have urged residents to take precautions include avoiding eating fruit fallen on the ground and drinking raw date palm sap.U.V. Jose, district collector of Kozhikode, said government and private hospitals were working in close coordination.”Health staff are visiting individual households giving them specific instructions including about eating fruits from outside and other precautions,” he told AFP.Authorities in Goa and Tamil Nadu states, neighbouring Kerala, said they were monitoring the spread of the outbreak.Nipah first appeared in Malaysia in 1998. It spread to Singapore and more than 100 people were killed. On that occasion, pigs were the virus hosts but they are believed to have caught it from bats.In India the disease was first reported in 2001 and again six years later, with the two outbreaks claiming 50 lives.Both times the disease was reported in West Bengal state bordering Bangladesh.Bangladesh has borne the brunt of the disease in recent years, with more than 100 people dying of Nipah since a first outbreak was reported in 2001. In 2004, humans became infected with Nipah after eating date palm sap contaminated by fruit bats.last_img read more

That includes both its best feature — nearly 10 hours of battery life — and its worst — an unimpressive low-res screen. We do like that it comes with an HDMI port, which is fairly unique in this price range, as well as the comfy keyboard, but you shouldn’t expect the swiftest performance.article continued below Lenovo Chromebook C330 price and configuration options We tested the $259 Lenovo Chromebook C330 with 32GB of internal storage, the only spec that differs from its other model. Both feature an 11.6-Inch, 1366 x 768-pixel display, the MediaTek MT8173C CPU and 4GB of RAM. The more premium Chromebook C330, which is currently down to $249, bumps you up to 64GB of storage. Design Plastic through and through, the Lenovo Chromebook bears an off-white hue that reminds me of vanilla ice cream. Its chunky, glossy black bezels, though, aren’t as comforting, reminding me of the ribbon-tape inside VHS cassettes. At 0.8 inches thick and 2.8 pounds, the Lenovo Chromebook C330 is heavier than the Acer Chromebook 11 (0.7 inches, 2.4 pounds). The Dell Chromebook 5190 and the HP Chromebook x360 11 G1 (both 0.8 inches, 2.9 pounds) weigh a hair more. The Chromebook C330 may look a little cheap, but its display has no stability problems, staying in place throughout the standard four convertible modes (laptop, stand, tablet and display). The panel also rotates smoothly on its 360-degree hinge. The Dell Chromebook 5190 and HP Chromebook x360 11 G1 also convert between modes, while the Acer Chromebook is a standard laptop. Ports Most of the Chromebook C330’s ports are on its left side, including its USB Type-C port for charging, HDMI, USB 3.0 and SD memory reader. I was a bit surprised to see an HDMI port on this cheap a machine, as none of the laptops I’m comparing it to offer that port. On the right side, you’ve got a headphone jack, security lock slot and buttons for power and volume, because convertibles place those buttons on the edges for when you’re in tablet, tent or display mode. Display The Lenovo Chromebook C330’s display may rate well for a Chromebook, but you might be used to better color or brightness. Watching the Sonic trailer, I quickly saw the telltale signs of the C330’s sub-full-HD panel, as the LED readout on a cop’s speed-tracking radar gun looked far too pixely, with lots of artifacts. Unfortunately, 1366 x 768 screens are extremely common among 11.6-inch Chromebooks, as the HP Chromebook 11 G1, the Acer Chromebook 11 and the Dell Chromebook 5190 all suffer from these low-res displays. While the divisive video game character rendered in a slightly-off blue, other items, such as the wood paneling and blue suits in a Pentagon office, looked faded. While these outputs were acceptable for a budget laptop, I was shocked to see the audio stutter repeatedly as I watched Super Mario 64 footage in a YouTube video by VideogameDunkey. According to our testing, the Lenovo Chromebook C330 produces 75% of the sRGB color gamut, which is close to the 80% Chromebook average, the 73% rating from the Dell Chromebook 5190, the 79% from the HP Chromebook x360 11 G1 and the 78% rating from the Acer Chromebook 11. MORE: Laptops with the Best Display Brightness The Chromebook C330 emits up to 250 nits of brightness, which narrowly tops the 233-nit category average. We saw a similar rating from the 258-nit Dell Chromebook 5190 and lower ratings from the HP Chromebook x360 11 G1 (200 nits) and the Acer Chromebook 11 (223 nits). While its color output held up when I watched the Sonic trailer from 33 degrees to the left and right, its glossy screen picked up a lot of glare and reflection from our office’s lighting. The C330’s touch screen accurately registered my taps and gestures as I navigated the desktop and web in Chrome. It also allowed for smooth scrolling. Keyboard and touchpad Lenovo understands that just because you’ve got a tight budget doesn’t mean you should be stuck with a lousy typing experience. Testing the Chromebook C330 on the 10fastfingers typing test, I click-clacked my way to a rate of 70 words per minute. That’s a bit down from my 80 words per minute average on mechanical keyboards, which I prefer and use more frequently. The keys offer a good clicking feel, thanks to their 72 grams of required actuation force, which is more than the 60 gram rate we hope companies exceed. That makes up for the 1.2 millimeters of vertical travel in the keys, which is a bit shallow (we look for 1.5 to 2 millimeters). The Chromebook C330’s 4.1 x 2.4-inch touchpad tracked my taps correctly and I scrolled down web pages without a stutter. It also correctly recognized Chrome OS’ three-finger navigation gestures. Audio Don’t expect the Lenovo Chromebook C330 to replace your stereo. Listening to Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Too Much” on the laptop, I liked that it provided enough sound to fill a medium-size conference room, but I was frustrated by how crunchy it made the song’s smooth synths and how hollow the track’s bass sounded. Specs and performance You don’t get much multitasking prowess from the MediaTek MT8173C processor (with 4GB of RAM) in the Chromebook C330, as I heard the audio stutter when I split its screen between a 1080p video and five Chrome tabs. That poor performance translated to a mediocre score of 2,934 on the Geekbench 4 general benchmark, which falls below the 4,536 Chromebook average and the 4,193 from the Dell Chromebook 5190 (Celeron N3450 CPU, 4GB of RAM). We found lower scores of 1,366 from the Acer Chromebook 11 (Celeron N3350; 4GB of RAM) and 1,339 from the HP Chromebook x360 11 G1 (Intel Celeron N3350 CPU, 8GB of RAM). On the Jetstream 2 test, which benchmarks Javascript performance online, the Lenovo Chromebook C330 earned a 31.32, which is less than the 52.6 Chromebook average. MORE: Laptops with the Best Productivity Performance The Chromebook C330 again did poorly on the WebGL Aquarium test, rendering 500 fish at 25 frames per second, a rate that’s slower than the 54 fps rate from the HP Chromebook x360 11 G1 and the 46fps mark we saw from both the Dell Chromebook 5190 and the Acer Chromebook 11. Battery Life The Lenovo Chromebook C330 can last longer than an average work day, with slightly better battery life than we expect from a Chromebook. The Laptop Mag Battery Test (web surfing at 150 nits) drained the Chromebook C330 in 9 hours and 51 minutes, which is longer than the 9:10 Chromebook average and the 9:20 from the Acer Chromebook 11. The Dell Chromebook 5190 (9:50) and the HP Chromebook x360 11 G1 posted nearly identical times. Webcam The 0.9 megapixel webcam is the kind of boring, pedestrian sensor that laptop reviewers expect. The camera is so sensitive to lighting that small changes can create wildly varied photos: My best advice is to have light (natural, if possible) in front of you and as little light as possible behind you. Knowing that allowed me to accurately capture my skin tone, the greens of office plants and my trolling colleague Gia, in the background. But even with that knowledge, the photos I took featured a dearth of detail in my face and hair, with only the largest features getting much definition. The glass window behind me looks blown out because of a reflection of light bouncing in from outside. Heat The Lenovo Chromebook C330 is one cool customer. After we streamed 15 minutes of HD video on the notebook, our heat gun registered the temperatures on its touchpad (75.5 degrees Fahrenheit), G&H keys (79 degrees) and underside (82 degrees). All of those readings fall under our 95-degree comfort threshold. Software When it comes to pre-loaded software, most Chromebooks are the same, and that’s good, thanks to the complete lack of bloatware (which still plagues some Windows laptops). Updates to Chrome OS eliminated its dependence on the Chrome Web Store, allowing Android-app emulation from the Google Play Store. Linux app support will soon be available “out of the box” for Chromebooks. Bottom Line The Lenovo Chromebook C330 offers tons of endurance and its keyboard enables comfortable typing.

Market estimates show that less than 20 percent of the addressable market for atrial fibrillation therapy is being served due to limited regulatory approval and lack of provider training and expertise. The market that participants like to call “two years away, for the past ten years,” is now building momentum due to ongoing clinical research and recent FDA approval of the first catheter ablation system for treatment of atrial fibrillation in February of 2009.The latest end-user study from Frost & Sullivan’s Medical Device group assesses a variety of critical dynamics of catheter ablation approaches and technologies in treatment of both paroxysmal and long-standing persistent atrial fibrillation. Electrophysiologists, cardiologists, and cardiac surgeons provided insight on factors such as adoption drivers, clinical preferences, expected impact of the economy, referral patterns, assistive technologies and brand perceptions.Select findings include the following:• Compared to results collected during Frost & Sullivan’s 2007 End User Perceptions of Atrial Fibrillation Study, this more recent study noted a statistically significant increase in awareness of the latest trends in EP ablation procedures and technologies.• One-quarter of electrophysiologists currently use robotic-assisted magnetic navigation systems. Of those who do not, 41 percent report that they are very unlikely to adopt a robotic or magnetic system for ablation in the next 12 months.• Upgrading of existing products and technologies is foreseen to be very or somewhat negatively impacted by the economy by 53 percent of responding electrophysiologists.• The most utilized ablation strategy for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation is wide-area circumferential ablation. The least utilized ablation strategy is the target-fractionated electrogram.• On average, cardiologists on average estimate that 35 percent of their patients are aware of and receptive to ablation procedures.Researchers conducted fieldwork in March 2009. The total sample consisted of 166 clinicians, broken down into 103 electrophysiologists, 47 general cardiologists, and 16 cardiac surgeons within the U.S.”The atrial fibrillation market is considered to be one of the next major opportunities for growth in the cardiovascular space, particularly for companies focused on management and treatment of cardiac rhythm disorders,” notes Frost & Sullivan Industry Manager Venkat Rajan. “Due to mounting clinical support and the concurrent maturation of assistive technologies that enable for more accurate target identification and treatment planning, the market is poised to undergo a significant change over the next five years.”As the market continues to develop, there are number of key clinical and product features that system developers must define themselves around as they seek distinction in the marketplace,” explains Rajan.For more information: www.medicaldevices.frost.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | June 08, 2009 Frost & Sullivan Says There is Momentum for Catheter AF Ablation Technologies News | November 08, 2010 Survey Shows Physicians Less Comfortable Stopping Cardiac Devices November 8, 2010 – Physicians are significantly less comfortable discussing withdrawal of pacemaker (PM) and… read more Feature | October 15, 2014 Imricor Announces First Procedures in Clinical Study of MR-Enabled Cardiac Ablation Products Imricor Medical Systems, Inc. announced the first three cardiac ablation procedures were completed in the first… read more News | September 14, 2008 FDA Clears BSD Medical’s MicroThermX-100 Microwave Ablation System September 15, 2008 – BSD Medical Corp. read more News | September 08, 2009 Siemens, SurgiVision to Build MRI-Guided Cardiac EP System September 8, 2009 – Siemens Healthcare and SurgiVision Inc. today announced an agreement for the codevelopment and… read more News | February 10, 2008 ACC Covering Gambit In Cardiovascular Science and Education February 11, 2008 – The American College of Cardiology will hold its Annual Scientific Session from March 29-April 1 read more Feature | August 20, 2010 Imaging System May Boost Accuracy Treating Ventricular Tachycardia August 19, 2010 – Researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore have developed a novel 3-D… read more News | March 31, 2010 Medtronic Seeks Clearance for MRI-Safe Pacemaker March 31, 2010 – The number of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans performed increases each year, as does the number… read more News | June 19, 2009 Medtronic Gets European Approval for Second-Generation MRI-Safe Pacemaker June 19, 2009 – Medtronic Inc. today said it received CE (Conformité Européenne) mark for the company’s second-… read more Related Content Technology | March 22, 2011 Intelligent Cardiac Structured Reporting Featured at ACC 2011 March 22, 2011 – Further enhancing its cardiovascular reporting capabilities, Fujifilm Medical Systems Inc. added its… read more last_img read more

Messaging app Telegrams updated Privacy Policy is an open challenge

first_imgSocial media companies are facing a lot of heat presently because of their privacy issues. One of them is Facebook. The Cambridge analytica scandal had even prompted a senate hearing for Mark Zuckerberg. On the other end of this spectrum, there is another messaging app known as Telegram, registered in London, United Kingdom, founded by the Russian entrepreneur Pavel Durov. Telegram has been in the news for an absolutely opposite situation. It’s often touted as one of the most secure and secretive messaging apps. The end to end encryption ensures that security agencies across the world have a tough time getting access to any suspicious piece of information. For this reason Russia has banned the use of Telegram app on April 2018. Telegram updated their privacy policies on . These updates have further ensured that Telegram will retain the title of the most secure messaging application in the planet. It’s imperative for any messaging app to get access to our data. But how they choose to use it makes you either vulnerable or secure. Telegram in their latest update have stated that they process personal data on the grounds that such processing caters to the following two goals: Providing effective and innovative Services to our users To detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud or security issues in respect of their provision of Services. The caveat for the second point being the security interests shall not override the space of fundamental rights and freedoms that require protection of personal data. This clause is an excellent example on how applications can prove to be a torchbearer for human rights and basic human privacy amidst glaring loopholes. Telegram have listed the the kind of user data accessed by the app. They are as follows: Basic Account Data Telegram stores basic account user data that includes mobile number, profile name, profile picture and about information, which are needed  to create a Telegram account. The most interesting part of this is Telegram allows you to only keep your username (if you choose to) public. The people who have you in their contact list will see you as you want them to – for example you might be a John Doe in public, but your mom will still see you as ‘Dear Son’ in their contacts. Telegram doesn’t require your real name, gender, age or even your screen name to be your real name. E-mail Address When you enable 2-step-verification for your account or store documents using the Telegram Passport feature, you can opt to set up a password recovery email. This address will only be used to send you a password recovery code if you forget it. They are particular about not sending any unsolicited marketing emails to you. Personal Messages Cloud Chats Telegram stores messages, photos, videos and documents from your cloud chats on their servers so that you can access your data from any of your devices anytime without having to rely on third-party backups. All data is stored heavily encrypted and the encryption keys in each case are stored in several other data centers in different jurisdictions. This way local engineers or physical intruders cannot get access to user data. Secret Chats Telegram has a feature called Secret chats that uses end-to-end encryption. This means that all data is encrypted with a key that only the sender and the recipients know. There is no way for us or anybody else without direct access to your device to learn what content is being sent in those messages. Telegram does not store ‘secret chats’ on their servers. They also do not keep any logs for messages in secret chats, so after a short period of time there is no way of determining who or when you messaged via secret chats. Secret chats are not available in the cloud — you can only access those messages from the device they were sent to or from. Media in Secret Chats When you send photos, videos or files via secret chats, before being uploaded, each item is encrypted with a separate key, not known to the server. This key and the file’s location are then encrypted again, this time with the secret chat’s key — and sent to your recipient. They can then download and decipher the file. This means that the file is technically on one of Telegram’s servers, but it looks like a piece of random indecipherable garbage to everyone except for you and the recipient. This complete process is random and there random data packets are periodically purged from the storage disks too. Public Chats In addition to private messages, Telegram also supports public channels and public groups. All public chats are cloud chats. Like everything else on Telegram, the data you post in public communities is encrypted, both in storage and in transit — but everything you post in public will be accessible to everyone. Phone Number and Contacts Telegram uses phone numbers as unique identifiers so that it is easy for you to switch from SMS and other messaging apps and retain your social graph. But the most important thing is that permissions from the users are a must before the cookies are allowed into your browser. Cookies Telegram promises that the only cookies they use are those to operate and provide their Services on the web. They clearly state that they don’t use cookies for profiling or advertising. Their cookies are small text files that allow them to provide and customize their Services, and provide an enhanced user experience. Also, whether or not to use these cookies is a choice made by the users. So, how does Telegram remain in business? The Telegram business model doesn’t match that of a revenue generating service. The founder Pavel Durov is also the founder of the popular Russian social networking site VK. Telegram doesn’t charge for any messaging services, it doesn’t show ads yet. Some new in app purchase features might be included in the new version. As of now, the main source of revenue for Telegram are donations and mainly the earnings of Pavel Durov himself (from the social networking site VK). What can social networks learn from Telegram? Telegram’s policies elevate privacy standards that many are asking from other social messaging apps. The clamour for stopping the exploitation of user data, using their location details for targeted marketing and advertising campaigns is increasing now. Telegram shows that privacy can be achieved, if intended, in today’s overexposed social media world. But there is are also costs to this level of user privacy and secrecy, that are sometimes not discussed enough. The ISIS members behind the 2015 Paris attacks used Telegram to spread propaganda. ISIS also used the app to recruit the perpetrators of the Christmas market attack in Berlin last year and claimed credit for the massacre. More recently, a Turkish prosecutor found that the shooter behind the New Year’s Eve attack at the Reina nightclub in Istanbul used Telegram to receive directions for it from an ISIS leader in Raqqa. While these incidents can never negate the need for a secure and less intrusive social media platform like Telegram, there should be workarounds and escape routes designed for stopping extremists and terrorist activities. Telegram have assured that all ISIS messaging channels are deleted from their network which is a great way to start. Content moderation, proactive sentiment and pattern recognition and content/account isolation are the next challenges for Telegram. One thing is for sure, Telegram’s continual pursuance of user secrey and user data privacy is throwing an open challenge to others to follow suite. Whether others will oblige or not, only time will tell. To read about Telegram’s updated privacy policies in detail, you can check out the official Telegram Privacy Settings.
