Pakistan have only themselves to blame: Shoaib Akhtar on World Cup debacle

first_img Next India Today Web Desk New DelhiJuly 4, 2019UPDATED: July 4, 2019 14:17 IST ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Pakistan need a miracle against Bangladesh on Friday to qualify for semi-finals (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSEngland, Australia and India have sealed their spot in the semifinalsPakistan needed India or New Zealand to defeat England for a spot in the semifinalsPakistan and Bangladesh will face each other in their last group-stage fixtureFast-bowling legend Shoaib Akhtar blasted New Zealand, saying he was disappointed with the way the Black Caps played against England in their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match in Chester-le-Street on Wednesday.New Zealand lost to hosts England by 119 runs, all but ending Pakistan’s chances of reaching the semi-final of World Cup 2019. Nonetheless, Akhtar feels only Pakistan and not anyone else is responsible for their impending exit from the 50-over tournament in England.”I was disappointed with the way New Zealand played against England. They didn’t give any fight and meekly surrendered before England. They played like amateurs. They didn’t play quality cricket,” Shaoib Akhtar said in his YouTube channel.Pakistan suffered a massive defeat to arch-rivals India in their June 16 meeting in Manchester but have played a different brand of cricket ever since. Sarfaraz Ahmed’s men are on a 3-match unbeaten run after having outclassed the likes of South Africa, New Zealand and Afghanistan.Pakistan wanted a few results to go their way, especially against England. They would have benefitted had India and New Zealand defeated the hosts in their last 2 league matches but Eoin Morgan’s men stormed into the semi-final with wins over the 2 teams.Akhtar pointed out that Pakistan’s World Cup-opening defeat to West Indies and their 46-run loss to Australia were 2 matches that influenced their current standing in the World Cup points table.”The match against West Indies cost us badly. Then their match against Sri Lanka got abandoned. After that, they lost the game to Australia which they should have won. These three matches made it very difficult for Pakistan. They themselves have got out of the tournament. Nobody else is responsible for their loss,” Akhtar said.advertisementMeanwhile, Akhtar also urged Pakistan to give it their all and play for pride in their final group-stage match against Bangladesh.”All is not lost still. We have to play for our pride against Bangladesh. Pakistan has to make sure they don’t get humiliated and therefore they should play good cricket against Bangladesh,” Akhtar added.Also Read | World Cup 2019: Pakistan need lightning to strike Bangladesh team, jokes Mohammad YousufAlso Read | World Cup 2019: I should have won the Australia match for Pakistan, rues Imam-ul-HaqAlso SeeFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Emma Bunton Helps Pampers And UNICEF Celebrate A Decade Of Fighting Tetanus

first_imgAn estimated 500,000 newborn lives have been saved and 100 million women and their newborns protected from the deadly disease, maternal and newborn tetanus, thanks to a ten-year long partnership between Pampers and UNICEF that helped achieve this milestone.Video: Pampers UNICEF 10 Year AnniversaryThe partners marked the tenth anniversary of their work today by celebrating the contributions of their joint effort that has helped in the elimination of maternal and newborn tetanus in 17 countries, with the success of the ‘1 Pack = 1 Vaccine’ initiative.Long-standing spokesperson for the 1 Pack = 1 Vaccine campaign, Emma Bunton, united with Pampers and UNICEF during a global summit in New York to celebrate the progress for mothers and babies as a result of the partnership.At the event, Emma reflected on the decade-long initiative and invited everyone to mark the 10th anniversary by resolving to eliminate maternal and newborn tetanus entirely.“Working with the people who have been instrumental in the success of this partnership, and meeting some of the mothers and babies who have enjoyed better, healthier lives as a result of the initiative has been an unforgettable experience,” said former Spice Girl Emma Bunton.The 1 Pack = 1 Vaccine campaign has combined two components that are essential to defeating a disease like maternal and newborn tetanus: Raising funds, and raising profile.“The partnership between Pampers and UNICEF has resulted in much greater awareness of maternal and newborn tetanus.” said Yoka Brandt, UNICEF Deputy Executive Director. “It will take even more commitment and investment, but we can and must accelerate elimination efforts in the remaining 21 countries where the key challenge remains universal access to life saving interventions, including maternal and newborn tetanus vaccines.”And although much has already been achieved, there is more work to be done, as maternal and newborn tetanus still threatens the lives of 71 million women and their newborns.Sirma Umur, Pampers VP babycare E-IMEA says “We continue to partner with UNICEF to help protect the world’s babies against this deadly disease and invite everyone to join us in our 10th anniversary wish to eliminate maternal and newborn tetanus entirely.”Tetanus is caused by bacteria that live in soil. Newborns are often infected as a result of unhygienic birth practices, such as cutting the umbilical cord with un-sterile instruments or handling it with dirty hands. Once contracted, there is no real cure. Nearly all babies who contract tetanus die, unless they receive treatment.The true extent of the newborn tetanus death toll is not fully known, since the population at the highest risk of contracting the disease tends to live in rural areas with little or no access to health care services or education.Newborn tetanus can be prevented through a simple vaccination given to pregnant women and women of a child-bearing age, to protect both the woman and her unborn child during this vulnerable period. Following administration of the tetanus vaccine to a pregnant mother, the antibodies pass across the placenta to her foetus.World Health Organisation (WHO) and UNICEF recommend three appropriately spaced doses of the tetanus vaccine in order to ensure long-lasting immunity. After two doses, a woman who is vaccinated before she gives birth will be protected against the disease for three years. After three doses she will be protected for five years, and in both cases, will share her protection with her baby for the first two months of lifelast_img read more

EU UK inch closer to a deal as Brexit hangs in the

first_imgBRUSSELS – Britain and the European Union appeared to be inching toward agreement on Brexit on Monday, but British Prime Minister Theresa May faced intensifying pressure from her divided Conservative government that could yet scuttle a deal.Britain leaves the EU on March 29 — the first country ever to do so — but a deal must be sealed in the coming weeks to leave enough time for the U.K. and European Parliaments to sign off. May faces increasing domestic pressure over her proposals for an agreement following the resignation of another government minister last week.The British leader had been hoping to present a draft deal to her Cabinet this week. But no Brexit breakthrough was announced Monday after talks between European affairs ministers. The two sides are locked in technical negotiations to try to bridge the final gaps in a move laden with heavy political and economic consequences.May said talks were in their “endgame” but that negotiating a divorce agreement after more than four decades of British EU membership was “immensely difficult.”May told an audience at the Lord Mayor’s Banquet in London that “we are working extremely hard, through the night, to make progress on the remaining issues in the Withdrawal Agreement, which are significant.“Both sides want to reach an agreement,” May said, though she added she wouldn’t sign up to “agreement at any cost.”The main obstacle to a deal is how to keep goods flowing smoothly across the border between EU country Ireland and Northern Ireland in the U.K.Both sides have committed to avoid a hard border with costly and time-consuming checks that would hamper business. Any new customs posts on the border could also re-ignite lingering sectarian tensions. But Britain and the EU haven’t agreed on how to achieve that goal.“Clearly this is a very important week for Brexit negotiations,” Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney told reporters after the meeting in Brussels. “The two negotiating teams have really intensified their engagement … There is still clearly work to do.”And Martin Callanan, a minister in Britain’s Brexit department, said all involved were “straining every sinew to make sure that we get a deal but we have to get a deal that is right for the U.K., right for the EU and one that would be acceptable to the U.K. Parliament.”EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier didn’t speak to reporters Monday and a planned news conference with him was cancelled.Instead, EU headquarters issued a short statement saying that Barnier explained to the ministers that “intense negotiating efforts continue, but an agreement has not been reached yet.”Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok said the two sides “are getting closer to each other.”“But in negotiations there is only a deal if there is full agreement,” Blok said. “There is only a 100-per cent deal. There is not a 90-per cent deal or a 95-per cent deal.”Earlier, France’s EU affairs minister, Nathalie Loiseau, stepped up pressure on May. “The ball is in the British court. It is a question of a British political decision,” she said.The EU is awaiting Barnier’s signal as to whether sufficient progress has been made to call an EU summit to seal a deal.Rumours have swirled of a possible top-level meeting at the end of November. But Austrian EU affairs minister Gernot Bluemel, whose country holds the EU’s rotating presidency, said “so far progress is not sufficient to call in and set up another (summit).”In recent days there have been signs of progress behind the scenes, but all parties have remained tight-lipped about the developments, given the politically charged atmosphere.In Britain, pro-Brexit and pro-EU politicians alike warned May that the deal she seeks is likely to be shot down by Parliament.Boris Johnson, a staunch Brexit supporter, wrote in a column for Monday’s Daily Telegraph that May’s plan to adhere closely to EU regulations in return for a trade deal and an open Irish border amounts to “total surrender” to the bloc.The proposed terms are scarcely more popular with advocates of continued EU membership.Former Education Secretary Justine Greening on Monday called May’s proposals the “worst of all worlds,” and said the public should be allowed to vote on Britain’s departure again.“We should be planning as to how we can put this final say on Brexit in the hands of the British people,” Greening told the BBC.Johnson’s younger brother, Jo Johnson, resigned last week backing calls for a second referendum on whether the country should leave the EU. May has consistently rejected the idea of another nationwide vote on Brexit.___Jill Lawless reported from London.last_img read more

Grad student focused on major games employees

While most people keep a watchful eye on the athletes at major sporting competitions, Lindsay Smith instead has her sights set on those working behind the scenes.The Brock graduate student is delving deep into employees who work at international multi-sport events, such as the Olympics, Pan American Games and Commonwealth Games.It’s an area she has firsthand knowledge in, having worked at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Samoa after graduating from Brock’s Sport Management program in 2015.She travelled to the Pacific island nation as part of a Queen Elizabeth Scholarship program.Smith’s time with the international multi-sport competition, held over two weeks in Samoa’s capital of Apia, was eye opening.Being part of that niche workforce gave her insight into employment within the major games industry and into the vital role employees play in the organization and operation of the international events. Smith’s experience at the Commonwealth Youth Games now frames her research direction as a Master of Arts student under the supervision of Professor Kirsty Spence.She is in the early stages of a study to better understand the impact of leadership on the development of employees’ perceived workplace fulfillment in the major games industry.Smith’s work experience, which also includes the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics, “significantly influenced her decision to more deeply explore the relationship between leadership and its impact on employees’ workplace fulfillment through her Graduate thesis project,” Spence said.“We are certainly looking forward to the managerial and theoretical implications from her study.”Major games are “extremely high intensity and are prone to change with little to no notice given to its employees,” Smith said.  “After being exposed to the workings of major games myself, I became interested in exploring how employees feel when there is so much chaos in their jobs and how different leadership styles can impact them in these situations.”The impact of Smith’s research is rooted in discovering the experience that major games employees have at work.She aims to learn whether employee needs can be met in a broader sense, where meaning developed at work transcends the workplace, also nourishing their personal lives.Smith also hopes to discover whether this is important to employees’ lives both inside and outside of the work context.“Researchers rarely focus on leadership, human resources and employee relations topics within the major games context, which means that this exploratory study has the potential to open the door to many more questions and improvements in the major games industry,” Smith said. Major games leaders will benefit from Smith’s research as it seeks to provide increased insight into the potential needs of employees. Additionally, her research may have direct implications to sport organizations and major games events, as employees who experience workplace fulfillment are said to be more productive — a factor that contributes to overall organizational productivity and success.Smith will soon begin her research by conducting interviews with major games sport managers who have been involved with past or current events.Participants will have relevant insight into the major games working environment and the role that leaders play in the development of employee fulfillment in such a unique working context.In May, Smith will be presenting her research at the Canadian Congress on Leisure Research (CCLR) conference in Waterloo and the North American Society of Sport Management (NASSM) conference in Denver, Colo. read more

Mining strong – Atlas Copco sees sales back at 2008 level

first_imgAt Atlas Copco’s annual press lunch in London yesterday Björn Rosengren, Senior Executive Vice President, Construction and Mining Technique (CMT), reported that business was back to 2008 levels and lead times were stretching out again, mainly thanks to mining industry demand. He commented that it had been a very fast recovery following the global financial crisis. Emerging markets have played a big role in this comeback, particularly the dramatic urbanisation in China that is driving minerals demand.Atlas Copco’s presence in growth markets is very important and is why Rosengren is now based out of Shanghai. CMT Asia has grown 522% in the last 10 years, and China alone has grown 600%. Developing the service business has also been very instrumental in the recovery, though Chinese mining groups still lag behind in terms of their relative spending on service/maintenance versus other major mining markets. He has spent a lot of time travelling in China over the recent months and reports that like many parts of the mining world, some major Chinese open pits are preparing to go underground and that the country’s mining industry is suffering from falling grades and the need to develop mines in ever more remote places. There are also needs for efficiency improvements and raising safety and environmental standards. There is the will and the intent to purchase the mining equipment required to achieve these goals.He noted that the ‘high end’ China mining equipment market is primarily being served by the international companies. The major competition comes in the ‘mid range’ equipment where international companies are fighting with Chinese suppliers for the business. Rosengren confirms the need to improve the company’s position in the mid range market in China which, he says, requires local design, development and manufacture. To achieve this there is a need to find good skills in the local personnel market. One Atlas Cocpo goal for the future is “making China our home market,” he explained. Atlas Copco already manufactures products in China specifically for the Chinese market – these include the D55 crawler drill plus the CDM75E, CDM75D and CDM30 blasthole drills.New Atlas Copco products that will be featured on this site over the comining days will include the Secoroc PARD system, designed to boost rotary drilling performance by combining the best of DTH and Rotary drilling technology. There is also the Atlas Copco Secoroc Omega sealed bearing tricone drill bit representing a technological leap forward over standard air bearing roller cone bits.The Boomer XE4 C is a new four-boom drill rig developed by Atlas Copco in co-operation with Nordic tunneling contractor, Veidekke. There will also be further examination of Atlas Copco entering the mobile crushing and screening business through the acquisition of Hartl Anlagenbau GmbH, Austria, a company that manufactures and sells mobile crushers and screeners.last_img read more

Supplier to Penneys based in Bangladesh building that collapsed claiming 87 lives

first_imgRESCUERS TRIED TO free dozens of people believed trapped in the concrete rubble after an eight-story building that housed garment factories collapsed, killing at least 87.Workers had complained about cracks in the structure before it came tumbling down, but were assured it was safe.Searchers cut holes in the jumbled mess of concrete with drills or their bare hands, passing water and flashlights to those pinned inside the building near Bangladesh’s capital of Dhaka.“I gave them whistles, water, torchlights. I heard them cry. We can’t leave them behind this way,” said fire official Abul Khayer. Rescue operations illuminated by floodlights continued through the night.The disaster came less than five months after a factory fire killed 112 people and underscored the unsafe conditions in Bangladesh’s massive garment industry.Large cracksWorkers said they had hesitated to go to into the building on this morning because it had developed such large cracks a day earlier that it even drew the attention of local news channels.Abdur Rahim, who worked on the fifth floor, said a factory manager gave assurances that there was no problem, so employees went inside.“After about an hour or so, the building collapsed suddenly,” Rahim said. He next remembered regaining consciousness outside.Construction codesOn a visit to the site, Home Minister Muhiuddin Khan Alamgir told reporters the building had violated construction codes and “the culprits would be punished.”Among the textile businesses in the building were Phantom Apparels Ltd., New Wave Style Ltd., New Wave Bottoms Ltd. and New Wave Brothers Ltd., which make clothing for major brands including The Children’s Place, Dress Barn, and The Cato Corp.Jane Singer, a spokeswoman for The Children’s Place, said that “while one of the garment factories located in the building complex has produced apparel for The Children’s Place, none of our product was in production at the time of this accident.”“Our deepest sympathies go out to the victims of this terrible tragedy and their families,” Singer said in a statement.Dress Barn said that to its knowledge, it had “not purchased any clothing from that facility since 2010. We work with suppliers around the world to manufacture our clothing, and have a supply chain transparency program to protect the rights of workers and their safety.”Officials at The Cato Corp. couldn’t be immediately reached for comment.PenneysPenneys confirmed that one of the suppliers it uses to produce some of its goods was located on the second floor of the building.In a statement emailed to The Associated Press, Primark said it was “shocked and deeply saddened by the appalling incident.” It added that it has been working with other retailers to review the country’s approach to factory standards and will now push for this review to include building integrity.Meanwhile, Primark’s ethical trade team is working to collect information, assess which communities the workers come from, and to provide support “where possible.”Spanish retailer Mango denied reports it was using any of the suppliers in the building. However, in an email statement to the AP, it said that there had been conversations with one of them to produce a batch of test products.Kevin Gardner, a spokesman at Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., the second-largest clothing producer in Bangladesh, said the company is investigating to see if a factory in the building was currently producing for the chain.“We remain committed and are actively engaged in promoting stronger safety measures, and that work continues,” Gardner added.Workers said they didn’t know what specific clothing brands were being produced in the building because labels are attached after the products are finished.Charles Kernaghan, executive director of the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights, which has an office in nearby Dhaka, says his staff is investigating the situation. He’s hoping his team, working with local workers’ groups, will be able to find out which brands were having their products made at the time of the collapse.Corrupt“You can’t trust many buildings in Bangladesh,” Kernaghan said. “It’s so corrupt that you can buy off anybody and there won’t be any retribution.”Sumi, a 25-year-old worker who goes by one name, said she was sewing jeans on the fifth floor with at least 400 others when the building fell.“It collapsed all of a sudden,” she said. “No shaking, no indication. It just collapsed on us.”She said she managed to reach a hole in the building where rescuers pulled her out.Reports suggested the death toll was likely to rise.“We sent two people inside the building, and we could rescue at least 20 people alive. They also told us that at least 100 to 150 people are injured and about 50 dead people are still trapped inside this floor,” said Mohammad Humayun, a supervisor at one of the garment factories.Tens of thousands of people gathered at the site, weeping and searching for family members. Firefighters and soldiers with drilling machines and cranes worked with volunteers to search for survivors.An enormous section of the concrete structure appeared to have splintered like twigs. Colorful sheets of fabric were tied to upper floors so those inside could climb or slide down and escape.Rescuers carried the body of a young boy from the building, but it was not immediately clear what he had been doing inside. The building, in the Dhaka suburb of Savar, housed a bank and various shops in addition to the garment factories.An arm jutted out of one section of the rubble. A lifeless woman covered in dust could be seen in another.Rahim said his mother and father, who worked with him in the factory, were trapped inside.‘I can’t find him’Mosammat Khurshida wailed as she looked for her husband. “He came to work in the morning. I can’t find him,” she said. “I don’t know where he is. He does not pick up his phone.”Zahidur Rahman, a spokesman for Enam Medical College and Hospital, said Wednesday evening that 87 people had been confirmed dead. Brig. Gen. Mohammed Siddiqul Alam Shikder said 600 people had been rescued.The morgue of the medical college echoed with the sobs of people waiting for the bodies of their loved ones. “Where’s my mother? Where’s my mother? Tell me, tell me, oh Allah, oh Allah!” Rana Ahmed cried.The November fire at the Tazreen garment factory drew international attention to working conditions in Bangladesh’s $20 billion-a-year textile industry. The country has about 4,000 garment factories and exports clothes to leading Western retailers. The industry wields vast power in the South Asian nation.Tazreen lacked emergency exits, and its owner said only three floors of the eight-story building were legally built. Surviving employees said gates had been locked and managers had told them to go back to work after the fire alarm went off.Read: Thanks, Penneys: Primark boasts 55 per cent sales surge >last_img read more

What is iTunes Radio Its no Spotifykiller

first_imgEveryone has been waiting for Apple to announce a streaming music service since Pandora, Rdio and Spotify started to take off. The Cupertino crew finally made good on people’s hopes and dreams at WWDC 2013 on Monday by announcing iTunes Radio in conjunction with iOS 7. Apple talked up the service so much, it was easy to forget what it’s actually competing against. iTunes Radio doesn’t change the game.iTunes Radio is a streaming music service that will work on the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Apple TV, Mac, and PCs. The heart of iTunes Radio is Apple’s Genius smart playlist creator. New stations can be generated using any artist, song, or genre as a starting point. iTunes Radio will use individual listening history to shape the resulting radio stations. The more song data you provide iTunes, the smarter the streaming radio becomes. Apple describes this as a curated personal experience.Apple was careful to stress the importance of radio stations in the service. In fact, it doesn’t look like users will be able to build manual playlists at all. Services like Spotify and Google Play Music All Access allow users to select specific songs and albums to make playlists. Offline syncing is also part of the deal with these non-Apple alternatives, but iTunes Radio doesn’t appear to include that feature either.If any company has something to fear from Apple’s WWDC announcement, it’s Pandora. It’s really the closest analog to what Apple is doing with iTunes Radio. It’s a smarter Pandora, not a Spotify clone (where you can choose exactly what songs to hear).The one place Apple seems happy to let users dial in specific songs is when the time comes to buy them. At any time while listening to iTunes Radio, you can save a song to the wish list. iTunes also keeps track of every song played in one long list. The songs can be purchased directly from this interface and added to your iTunes collection. So, this service seems geared more toward encouraging traditional sales than replacing them, a la Spotify.The upshot of this arrangement is that Apple will allow anyone to stream iTunes Radio for free with ads. An iTunes Match subscription ($25 per year) entitles a user to ad-free streaming. The service isn’t set to launch until this autumn with iOS 7, so perhaps there will be some changes before that.last_img read more

Weather service forecasts snow Wednesday in Clark County

first_imgSouthwest Washington is likely to see snow Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service, and as of Tuesday night, Woodland Public Schools had already made the call to dismiss students two hours early this afternoon.Though there was uncertainty with Wednesday’s forecast in the beginning of the week, meteorologists for the weather service said that data gathered through Tuesday gave them more confidence in their prediction for snow Wednesday afternoon.“Where the question remains is, what will the accumulation be?” meteorologist Matthew Cullen said.Amanda Bowen, another meteorologist, said some of the forecasters’ computer models started jibing as Tuesday went on, which has helped forecasters feel a bit more confident about 1 to 2 inches of snow accumulation Wednesday.It could be a bit more, it could be a bit less, she said.“There are a lot of different computer models that we look at, and they all have a slightly different idea of what’s going to happen,” she said.Snow aside, forecasters expect a high temperature near 33 degrees Wednesday, with breezy winds in the 18- to 22-mph range, and gusts of up to 34 mph.last_img read more

QuadGraphics Buying Brown Printing for 100 Million

first_imgQuad/Graphics announced this week it’s buying Brown Printing from parent company Gruner + Jahr for $100 million. The deal expands Quad’s magazine and catalog printing business.The transaction is expected to close in the second half of 2014, and will be accretive to earnings, the company says. Funding will come from a combination of cash on hand and a revolving credit facility. Brown’s projected 2014 revenues are $350 million, and Quad says the purchase price is less than 4-times adjusted EBITDA. “This acquisition will enhance the many ways we help publishers and marketers drive top-line revenues while better controlling their overall total cost of product and distribution,” says Joel Quadracci, Quad/Graphics’ chairman, president and CEO, in a statement. “With print as our foundation, we will continue to find innovative ways to connect and integrate print with other media channels to increase reach, response and return on investment.”Standard & Poor’s isn’t so impressed with the deal. The ratings service downgraded Quad’s credit rating to a “BB-” from a “BB” because the acquisition edges Quad past the 3x leverage multiple to 3.2x. Also, S&P is spooked by Quad’s 4.5 percent revenue slide in 2013, along with its reliance on print-based revenues which are still 90 percent of total—prompting a financial risk profile adjustment from “intermediate” to “significant.”last_img read more

Alaska budget cuts lead to less fishing opportunity

first_imgSeiners in Starrigavan Bay during the first opening of Sitka’s 2014 sac roe herring fishery. (Photo by Rachel Waldholz/KCAW)Because of Alaska’s budget crisis, state agencies cut spending this year and are planning additional reductions in the next few years.For the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, those cuts have meant less monitoring of fish runs, a change that will lead to more conservative management and less fishing opportunity.That was the message from Fish and Game officials to a commercial fishing industry organization that met in Petersburg in late October.ADFG commissioner Sam Cotten told the board members of the United Fishermen of Alaska at its fall meeting in Petersburg that the department is looking at several years of budget reductions.“Last year I think we took an 18 percent cut and the governor’s asking for another 10,” Cotten said. “And the legislature’s not going to be satisfied with that. So it isn’t a matter of whether our budget’s going to get cut it’s a matter of how much. But we would like your help on the where part.”The department’s total spending this year is over 208 million dollars, with 65 million of that coming from the state’s general fund. More than half of that general fund money goes to programs in the commercial fisheries division. That general fund portion was cut from 80 million dollars the year before.In Southeast, programs that were reduced or eliminated were red king crab research, salmon aerial surveys, herring management and studies, port sampling and several weirs for counting salmon. Other cuts were made to sockeye salmon stock assessment and rockfish surveys.Elsewhere in Alaska, the cuts were made to herring monitoring and sampling, fish counting sonar, habitat mapping, aerial surveys, weirs and salmon counting towers.Deputy Commissioner Kevin Brooks said the department has looked to cut out time on the shoulder season, the beginning and end of salmon runs, for monitoring equipment or programs. “So the first thing we’re gonna do is we’re cutting back on the shoulders,” Brooks said. “If we had a weir we might go back to a tower or doing an aerial survey, something that’s less expensive and less precise, or shortening the time a weir might be in the water. But at some point we can’t just take incremental cuts we have to eliminate a project.”Weirs, towers, sonar, aerial surveys and sampling are all tools managers use to count fish and determine the strength and timing of returns. That information is used to decide how long and where commercial fishing fleets get to fish. In a budget handout given to the UFA board, the department said less precise data means more conservative management and less opportunity to harvest for all users of the state’s resources.The department is also looking at consolidating administrative staff and cost savings that could come with a proposed reorganization or elimination of the Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission, the organization in charge of vessel licensing and permits for commercial fisheries.Commercial fleets and processing companies pay tens of millions of dollars of taxes to the state each year. That number fluctuates with the changing volume of the catch and the changing dollar amount for that catch.Industry members said they would continue to advocate for the Fish and Game budget in the legislature and noted the importance of the commercial fisheries division in the overall department’s operations. UFA members also asked for greater transparency in the state budgets; they wanted to see easily understandable budgets with program costs down to specific line items so they could suggest spending cuts.The governor’s budget proposal for next year is due out in December.last_img read more

Woman killed by brotherinlaw after fight over water in Mumbai

Millennial Group Gathers In Houston To Discuss Generations Workforce Challenges

The fact that a lot of times, even for entry-level jobs, not only will an employer expect a degree, but they’ll also expect some type of substantive work experience,” Buchanan explains.One way Young Invincibles thinks that experience paradox can be overcome locally is by expanding summer jobs programs like the ones backed by the City of Houston, which provide jobs and internships both with the local government, as well as in the private sector and non-profit groups.“That is the hope and aspiration, that we’ll be able to develop a program that will provide youth with the opportunity to be able to work throughout the year. The mayor’s goal for the following year is to hope that we can at least [provide] 5,000 jobs,” notes Juliet Stipeche, Director of the recently created Office of Education for the City of Houston.One of the statistics Young Invincibles cites as concerning is that, according to a study released in 2015 by the Social Science Research Council, 19 percent of Houston African-American residents between 16 and 24 years of age are both out school and unemployed.Also in Houston, more than 15 percent of Hispanics are in that same situation, while 11 percent of Anglos experience the same situation.In September, Young Invincibles plans to release a report based on a series of round tables they held last year.“There was a really strong desire to work and ambition,” Buchanan explained about the information gathered in those round tables “but there is also a lot of concern about how to address some of the barriers these young people saw of getting and keeping a job.”last_img read more

first_img News | Artificial Intelligence | August 08, 2019 Half of Hospital Decision Makers Plan to Invest in AI by 2021 August 8, 2019 — A recent study conducted by Olive AI explores how hospital leaders are responding to the imperative read more In the past five years, no sector of healthcare has had as big a target on its back as has advanced diagnostic imaging services. Representatives of commercial insurance companies, politicians and even the media all have gravitated to using an MRI or CT service as the prime example of healthcare system waste. The resulting and calamitous reimbursement cuts the imaging industry has experienced, or been threatened with, has increased bankruptcies of providers and manufacturers while flooding venture capital into utilization management schemes.Other healthcare sectors – some bleeding money from inefficiencies that were squeezed out of the imaging industry years ago – watch the cycle with knowing they could not survive the microscopic view imaging has been under. The Patient’s Right to KnowNotably, patients’ voices have been absent from the ongoing target practice. The government officials and insurers who laud their goal of patient-centered care have not asked the patients if they wish to rely on their doctors’ best guesses of what’s wrong, or, obtain that picture which confirms what is or is not wrong. For most of us who have been patients, seeing is believing. For a patient, it can bring relief, or understanding of the need for lifestyle changes or help combat the denial that can come with the cruel reality of a positive finding. To the patient, a picture is often more comprehensible than thousands of the doctor’s words.Solutions are necessary that balance the patient’s right to know with the concern regarding using the limited healthcare dollar only on what is clinically appropriate.One such solution is e-ordering, sometimes referred to as electronic clinical decision support. E-ordering offers real-time access to evidence-based, clinical guidance regarding appropriate imaging studies for specific presenting conditions. The entire imaging industry – minus several utilization management vendors – should loudly and proudly embrace e-ordering. This is a way to document the appropriateness of the care provided while generating back-end data which offers indications of success, as well as if “waste” is occurring with imaging, and if so, who the perpetrators are. Even if seeing (evidenced-based data) isn’t necessarily believing for all politicians and insurers, at least our patients will have the assurance that their care has been data-driven, clinically appropriate: the right test has been done at the right time.A New Coalition is FormedEarly this year, the Imaging e-Ordering Coalition was formed to promote evidenced-based, electronic decision-support for imaging. While computerized physician order entry will eventually happen in most arenas, e-ordering can also be accomplished through online portals or, for those not currently electronically connected, an efficient and physician-friendly phone call to an entity that is electronically connected. While the singular goal of the e-Ordering Coalition is to promote clinical decision-support as a “value-add” solution for healthcare, the interests of the Coalition members are broad, ranging from providers’ intense dislike of the “value-subtract” radiology benefits management (RBM) vendors bring to companies promoting specific e-Ordering tools. Why Part of Best-PracticesWhy e-Ordering should be considered a part of best-practices for ordering imaging exams are the many benefits it offers. Some of these benefits include the following:1. Because the ordering clinician is given advice regarding appropriateness, it avoids the inefficient inconsistencies that the RBM model has with denials that result in appeals (some patients have a clinician with the tenacity to pursue an appeal until the order is granted, others have to accept the initial denial);2. It’s an educational approach, not a barrier approach;3. An electronic record is created of the interaction, which can be attached to the claim as an authorization requirement or, in the future, for PQRI reporting;4. This electronic record allows aggregated analysis of the data for credible, comparative measurement;5. The process is consistent with national HIT goals of interoperability and interconnectivity and “meaningful use”; 6. Real-time, clinically-based information is available to the ordering clinician at the time it is needed; and,7. The exercise offers assurance to the patient and whoever is paying that the most appropriate test has been provided.E-Ordering Gives “Meaning” to RISThe Coalition has been aggressive with its education of Members of Congress, officials at CMS who are overseeing a demonstration project on e-ordering for radiology, as well as with relevant HIT workgroup members. While the initial language of the federal stimulus package referred to clinical decision-support when appropriating funds to promote electronic medical record adoption, continuity in execution was non-existent. The initial draft of “meaningful use” excluded ambulatory information systems for radiology. The e-Ordering Coalition formed a radiology user Provider Roundtable. The group communicated with Dr. David Blumenthal, the HIT Coordinator, about meaningful use for radiology in a widely circulated letter. The group also created and submitted a matrix for defining meaningful use for ambulatory information systems for radiology.Imaging Must Promote SolutionsViable solutions must be embraced by the imaging industry if the current death spiral is to be broken and the industry can again turn its attention to innovation in patient care rather than its own survival. Rapid adoption of e-ordering is a solution which offers a credible defense against the forces that have targeted the industry.
