Defence officials say plan for combat upgrades to aging CF18s expected in

first_imgOTTAWA — Defence officials say they expect to know next spring what sensor, weapons and defensive upgrades will be needed to ensure the country’s aging CF-18 fighter jets are still able to fly combat missions until they are replaced in 2032.The Trudeau government plans to invest $3 billion over the next decade to keep the CF-18s as well as a handful of second-hand Australian fighters in the air until a new fighter-jet is purchased.But auditor general Michael Ferguson found last month that price tag did not include any actual upgrades to the planes’ combat systems, which have not had any significant upgrades since 2008.Defence officials told a House of Commons committee this afternoon they expect to have an idea by May what kind of combat upgrades will be needed — upgrades analysts expect will cost hundreds of millions, if not billions of dollars.The officials also blamed a nationwide shortage of pilots for contributing to the air force’s difficulty in finding enough fighter jockeys to fly the CF-18s, which Ferguson also flagged as a major concern.A number of measures are being explored or implemented to retain experienced pilots, who Ferguson found are leaving faster than they can be replaced.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

General Assembly delays vote on West Bank barrier resolution

The vote had been scheduled for today after Jordan introduced the draft text last Friday during a resumption of the Assembly’s tenth emergency special session on illegal Israeli actions in occupied East Jerusalem and the rest of the occupied Palestinian territory. The Assembly convened today only to hear minor amendments to the text.On 9 July the ICJ – the UN’s principal judicial organ – issued an advisory opinion saying the separation barrier was illegal and that construction must stop immediately. The Court also said Israel should make reparations for any damage caused, and that the Assembly and the Security Council should consider what steps to take “to bring to an end the illegal situation” created by the barrier.Earlier Tuesday, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan was asked if the Security Council should take up the issue.”I think [it] is before the General Assembly and I am not aware that the Council is going to take it up at this stage. I think the General Assembly should conclude its work,” he replied. read more

UN report upbeat on Liberias progress while urging further steps to consolidate

“The three branches of Government functioned in relative harmony; the reform and restructuring of the security sector is progressing; more Liberian refugees have returned home; and the Government has continued to take robust measures to fight corruption,” Mr. Annan writes in his report to the Security Council. He praises President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf’s efforts to bring together members of various religious and ethnic groupings, as well as political party leaders. “I encourage the President to continue to work towards involving all Liberians in the country’s recovery process and appeal to all political and civil society leaders to continue their constructive engagement in the reconstruction and reform processes currently under way,” Mr. Annan says. At the same time, the Secretary-General notes that the deployment of trained police officers continues to be hampered by logistical and management constraints. With respect to the new armed forces, only 106 recruits out of the targeted 2,000-strong army have so far received basic training, he adds, predicting that the new army will not be fully operational until 2008 at the earliest. Progress in meeting the governance and rule of law benchmarks has been slow, owing primarily to funding and capacity constraints. “There is also a marked absence of critical line ministries, including health, education and public works in many of the counties, for which external funding is urgently required,” the report says. The management and operational capacities of the national police force still need to be strengthened to enable the Liberian National Police to effectively assume security responsibilities prior to UNMIL’s withdrawal. He also warns that the continued presence of large numbers of unemployed youth in the urban centres, ex-combatants still awaiting reintegration opportunities, and deactivated police and army personnel “remains a very serious source of tension.” The Secretary-General says without job opportunities for the unemployed, including former combatants, “the security of the country will be undermined.” He again appeals for donor support to the Government’s employment generation initiatives. He also calls for donors to provide the funding required for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the Independent National Human Rights Commission to become fully operational. There are more than 15,800 UN military personnel and over 1,000 UN police in Liberia, supported by some 500 international civilian personnel, 750 local staff and 250 UN Volunteers. read more

Home Secretary Amber Rudd has authorised the extradition of Lauri Love to the US, where he is accused of computer hacking offences, the Home Office has said.Love, who has Asperger syndrome, is alleged to have stolen huge amounts of data from US agencies including the Federal Reserve, the US Army, the Department of Defence, Nasa and the FBI, in a spate of online attacks in 2012 and 2013.US authorities have been fighting for the 31-year-old, who lives with his parents near Newmarket in Suffolk, to face trial over charges of cyber-hacking, which his lawyers say could mean a sentence of up to 99 years in prison if he is found guilty. Love, 31, who has Aspergers, is accused of stealing sensitive data from Nasa and the US militaryCredit:Lauren Hurley/PA Wire All we are asking for is British justice for a British citizenRev Alexander Love A Home Office spokesman said: “On Monday 14 November, the Secretary of State, having carefully considered all relevant matters, signed an order for Lauri Love’s extradition to the United States.”Mr Love has been charged with various computer hacking offences which included targeting US military and federal government agencies.”District Judge Nina Tempia ruled that Mr Love could be extradited during a hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on September 16. Following the ruling, Mrs Rudd had two months to order the extradition of Mr Love, who could face the possibility of three separate trials in different jurisdictions.Mr Love, who also suffers from depression and eczema, has said that a jail term in the US could cause his health to deteriorate and would lead to a mental breakdown or suicide.It is alleged that between October 2012 and October 2013, Mr Love placed hidden “shells” or “backdoors” within the networks he compromised, allowing them to return and steal confidential data.He is accused of causing “millions of dollars” worth of damage.Mr Love is expected to appeal against the decision.Responding to the announcement, the Rev Alexander Love, Mr Love’s father, told the Press Association: “It was going to happen – it was inevitable – but it’s still painful. I cannot begin to express how much sorrow it causes me.”He added: “All we are asking for is British justice for a British citizen.”Barry Sheerman, one of the more than 100 MPs who have signed a letter calling on US President Barack Obama to block Mr Love’s extradition, said he was “deeply disappointed” at the decision.The Labour MP for Huddersfield said: “We are still keeping up the pressure. We are getting more and more MPs to sign the letter to President Obama.”He said he is “deeply disappointed” at the decision, adding: “The pressure continues, we won’t give up.” Love, 31, who has Aspergers, is accused of stealing sensitive data from Nasa and the US militarylast_img read more

Scania Site Optimisation and Ecolution help mines maximise productivity

first_imgRough and ever-changing terrains, remote locations, and complex workflow are just a few of the things that make operating in mining sites a challenge for customers and suppliers alike. “When it comes to operating efficient mining transport, we have to zoom out to see the big picture of where we fit into the overall operation of the customer,” says Björn Winblad, Head of Scania Mining. “The ultimate goal of Scania Site Optimisation is to help customers improve their business.”The core of Scania Site Optimisation is to implement tools and methods to increase efficiency in real mining situations, based on the lean production experience from Scania’s own factory. Identifying and closing efficiency gaps within the key areas of Time, Load, Road, Safety and Sustainability will help customers increase revenue, manage risks, and reduce cost. Scania Site Optimisation utilises existing Scania products and services, especially connected services. By analysing data collected from different sources such as vehicles and various processes within the mine, it can provide customers with valuable information that will allow them to make fact-based decisions and viable implementations.“The best thing is that Scania Site Optimisation is all about a collaborative partner­ship with the customer,” says Winblad. “We work closely together with the customer towards continuous improvements and implementation to ensure optimal productivity and operating costs.”Virtually all mining trucks are facing tough challenges on a daily basis, such as inferior roads, narrow passages and heavy loads. All this put extra focus on tailoring the right offer, for products and for services. “Scania Ecolution can be described as an umbrella for a number of services focusing on efficiency and sustainability. When first introduced, it con­cerned mainly new Scania trucks. But over time, the service has grown to also in­clude optimisation of complete fleets, analysis of driver behaviour plus training and coaching; regardless if the trucks are new or already operative. The aim for Scania Ecolution is to save as much fuel and CO2 emissions as possible for the customer.”“Even the best of tools can fail in the hands of the untrained,” says Jenny Engvall, acting Product Director, Construction, Scania Trucks. “By training and coaching the drivers and keeping the trucks connected to Scania, customers will get the most out of their investments. Under Scania Ecolution, we offer a palette of services that all work in the same direction, making our customers more efficient and profitable.”Slim margins and tight schedules also put extra pressure on hauliers in the construc­tion segment, which means that factors such as uptime and the total operating eco­nomy become decisive for their profitability. Drivers trained by Scania, in combination with connected vehicles, will drastically help improve their odds for profitability. “Driver evaluation, training and coaching have proved to be something of a shortcut to improved uptime and better total operating economy. Untrained, stressed or ignorant drivers can over time ruin the performance of a haulier, despite the best of prerequisites being at hand. By adding specialised modules for different applications, Scania is now able to tailor driver training packages. And moni­toring each driver’s progress and performance has never been easier than today, with simple tools available in Scania’s Control package or Fleet Management system.”“The fact that virtually all Scania trucks are connected today makes a huge difference for our customers,” says Engvall. “Not only can we learn and improve our solutions with data gathered in real-life operations, we can also offer smart services such as Scania Maintenance with Flexible Plans and Scania Fleet Care. The outcome for the customer is increased uptime, the right level of maintenance and predictable costs.”last_img read more

How to jailbreak iOS 61 on the iPhone 5 and iPad mini

first_imgAfter a five month wait, including at at least one false claim, iOS 6.1 has finally been jailbroken. Owners of the iPhone 5, iPad mini, and other up-to-date iOS devices, start your laptops and get ready for a step-by-step guide to releasing your gadget from Apple’s walled garden.Getting started with Evasi0nThe Evasi0n Jailbreak works on Linux, OS X, and every version of Windows after XP. To get started, head over to their website and download the version that is compatible with your Operating System. While this is downloading, you should consider doing a full backup of your iDevice in iTunes.It never hurts to have a backup stored on your computer in case anything happens during the Jailbreak process. While you are at it, you should disable any backup passwords in iTunes and lock passcodes on your iDevice according to the developers responsible for the Jailbreak.Extract the Evasi0n application from the folder that was just downloaded to your PC. As soon as you start the app, it will look for a connected iOS device. After the app has found your iPad mini or iPhone 5 (etc.) and made sure it is supported, the Jailbreak icon will light up, and you’ll be ready to start. From this point forward, you shouldn’t touch anything unless explicitly instructed to. The team responsible for the jailbreak recommend stepping out and stretching your legs, but you do actually need to press some buttons during this process, so don’t wander too far.Actually jailbreaking iOS 6.1The Evasi0n jailbreak is broken up into several steps. You’ll see a reboot and the tool on your PC will start the scrolling progress bar for about a minute. When the tool reaches the next step, you’ll be prompted to wake your iDevice and open the Evasi0n app that is now on your homescreen. Once you have done this, you’ll see activity on both the iDevice and your computer for another minute. The computer part of the process will finish first, and you’ll be prompted with an exit button. Even though the computer is finished, you need to leave your iDevice alone until it is finished.Jailbroken iPad miniAt this point, the app is trying to grab everything needed to run successfully. This will take longer on some devices than others. The iPad Mini, for example, will take closer to ten minutes, while the iPhone 5 will take about five. You’ll see a final reboot, and when you are prompted with a home screen again you’ll have the Cydia App on your homepage, ready to be used.Should anything go wrong during this process, you’ll be able to reboot your iDevice and complete a system restore through iTunes. Any time your iPhone/iPad is connected to your computer, iTunes will have what you need in order to restore back to brand new, and from there you can use a system backup to restore your apps and settings. At long last, iOS 6.1 users have what they need in order to use apps that live outside of the App Store.last_img read more

Increased DUI patrols coming for holidays

first_imgOLYMPIA — Additional police officers will be out on patrol throughout the state, and in Clark County, from Wednesday through the end of the year to keep an eye out for impaired drivers, according to the Washington Traffic Safety Commission.The agency’s records show more than 100 people are arrested for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol daily between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day in Washington.The Washington State Patrol and police departments in Battle Ground, La Center, Ridgefield, Vancouver and Washougal will have additional officers out on the road through the extra enforcement period.Last year, impaired driving — which includes alcohol, marijuana, prescription drugs and other substances that can impair driving such as over-the-counter cold or sleep medicines — killed 278 people and seriously injured 371 in Washington, the traffic commission said.“The unfortunate truth is that there will be empty seats at family tables this holiday season due to loved ones killed by impaired drivers,” Darrin Grondel, director of the traffic safety commission, said in a news release. “We call upon all residents to plan ahead to prevent these tragedies by avoiding driving after drinking, or using marijuana and other drugs.”last_img read more

Gorsuch.Credit: Franz Jantzen, Collection of the Supreme Court of the United States X With the impending retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy from the U.S. Supreme Court, some are wondering if Roe v. Wade, the landmark case regarding abortion rights, might be overturned when a new — presumably conservative — justice is appointed by President Trump.But how much does the Supreme Court really affect abortion law? Or does the battle over abortion rights take place more often in state legislatures, regardless of the high court’s makeup?In the audio above, Houston Matters talks it over with a couple area political scientists: Jay Aiyer of Texas Southern University and Houston Public Media’s Party Politics podcast, and Charles “Rocky” Rhodes of South Texas College of Law – Houston.

This cloud-based network, which Siemens displayed at RSNA 2014, helps link hospitals and healthcare experts to provide them with the ability to exchange data and pool their knowledge. Within hospitals, Teamplay makes it possible to evaluate the extensive amount of information generated by imaging devices – e.g. scanner capacity utilization, examination times or radiation doses – and to compare the numbers against in-house and third-party reference values. This means imaging devices can be analyzed in close to real time and their operation optimized based on the results, right down to individual device level. Because Teamplay runs on tablets, laptops and desktop PCs, members of the network have flexible access to the information, subject to the appropriate authorization and security measures.An easy-to-install DICOM application connects to the Teamplay user network. Data relevant for the evaluation is anonymized and encrypted for transmission to the Teamplay cloud, where it can be accessed at any time with the appropriate authorization.The Teamplay start page allows users to read the information they want to at a glance: how many patients were examined and how long was the average examination? What was the capacity utilization of the various modalities or the individual scanners? How long was the interval between the individual examinations? In graphical form, Teamplay provides answers to these and other questions. It also makes it possible to define target values for these types of parameters and have deviations displayed promptly. This helps customers operate their devices more efficiently and make sound decisions. When it comes to lung cancer screening, which has been recommended recently in the United States as a form of preventive medical check-up, Teamplay can rapidly help determine whether a hospital has sufficient CT capacity available to perform the expected additional number of scans.The network can also be used to monitor the doses applied by medical devices – another precondition for healthcare facilities to be able to perform lung cancer screening examinations. As with all examinations involving ionizing radiation, it is essential in these cases to apply a dose only as low as reasonably achievable. Teamplay can continuously monitor the dose used, broken down by the parts of the body volumes being examined. Target values can be defined and deviations clearly shown.Teamplay supports radiologists by making images and results available securely and in anonymized form to other physicians world-wide to draw on their expertise. Results can be quickly and easily shared between radiologists and referring and treating physicians, to provide the parties involved in treating the patient access to all relevant patient information.The product is currently under development and not commercially available.For more information: www.siemens.com Key Topics for Radiology Administrators at AHRA 2019Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 7:33Loaded: 2.15%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -7:33 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Arizona families, Arizona farms: working to produce high-quality milk South Korea passed a law in 2010 allowing judges or a Justice Ministry panel the option of ordering chemical castration after a series of violent sexual assaults on children sparked public outrage.The man to be castrated this week was convicted four times between 1984 and 2002 of raping or sexually molesting girls under the ages of 13, the ministry said in a separate statement. A psychiatric test has concluded the man is a pedophile and needs medication, the officials said.He will be released from prison in July under the condition that he receive injections every three months for three years, according to the ministry.Under the law, those who refuse or miss an injection could be returned to prison for up to seven years.Other countries also have been moving ahead with laws allowing chemical castration for sex offenders.Russian lawmakers in October gave first-round approval to a bill that would impose chemical castration on repeat sex offenders. Poland legalized the procedure in 2009 for offenders who rape minors or close relatives.Already, Britain, Denmark and Sweden offer chemical castration drugs to sex offenders on a voluntary basis. In the United States, several states have laws allowing chemical castration.

The result certifies the Master Tourbillon as the most precise mechanical wristwatch made today, according to a press release received by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine.The Chronometrie 2009 International timing competition for mechanical wristwatches was held to mark the 50th anniversary of the watch museum in Le Locle. This watchmaking town in Canton Neuchâtel, Switzerland, was known in the pre-quartz-watch era for its chronometers. It was the first timing competition since the Neuchâtel observatory held the last trial in 1972.A total of 16 watches entered the competition and six were eliminated during the 45 days of timing trials held at Switzerland’s chronometer-testing institute, COSC, in Biel and at the Besançon observatory in neighbouring France.The competition jury was chaired by Professor Michel Mayor, discoverer of extra-solar planets and astrophysician at the Geneva Observatory where the first chronometer testing process was developed in 1879. An honorary committee, headed by Swiss astronaut, Professor Claude Nicolier of the federal technical school in Lausanne (EPFL), ensured the integrity of the result. Mr Claude-Henri Chabloz of the Le Locle museum presided over the organising committee, which included representatives of the Swiss Society for Chronometry, COSC, the Besançon observatory and the ARC technical high school in Le Locle.The results of the competition, kept secret since it ended in October, were announced at a ceremony at the museum on December 3, 2009.Jaeger-LeCoultre, which produces in-house the entire range of parts required to build watch movements as well as most exterior components, has kept alive precision timing skills with the 1000 Hours Control introduced in 1992, which tests the timekeeping performance and reliability of its watches in conditions of daily wear.In 2009, reaffirming its pioneering role and leadership status among fine watch manufacturers, Jaeger-LeCoultre developed a new label of quality and accuracy, the 1000 Hours Chrono, which applies the ISO 3159 chronometer norms and focuses on precision timekeeping. This new label was specially created for the Master Grande Tradition watch with its silicon escapement and is entirely in line with the brand’s ongoing commitment to certified quality. In keeping with its avant-garde traditions, these two Jaeger-LeCoultre labels represent a major innovation by testing the accuracy of finished watches and not just of the movements alone without their complications.http://www.jaeger-lecoultre.comlast_img read more
