Five Hundred More Cameras Procured Under JamaicaEye

first_img “By early next year, we expect to be at 1,000 cameras installed and fully integrated into the system across the island,” Mr. Grant said. Story Highlights Senior Director for Modernisation and Strategic Projects in the Ministry of National Security, Arvel Grant, says that an additional 500 cameras have been procured under JamaicaEye, which will be installed over the coming months. A total of 400 cameras have been mounted in public spaces across the island, to date, under the national closed-circuit television (CCTV) surveillance programme. Senior Director for Modernisation and Strategic Projects in the Ministry of National Security, Arvel Grant, says that an additional 500 cameras have been procured under JamaicaEye, which will be installed over the coming months.A total of 400 cameras have been mounted in public spaces across the island, to date, under the national closed-circuit television (CCTV) surveillance programme.“By early next year, we expect to be at 1,000 cameras installed and fully integrated into the system across the island,” Mr. Grant said.“We have the early stages of the system running. Now we are moving into the larger-scale implementation, which would mean more cameras,” he added.Mr. Grant was speaking at the Rotary Club of St. Andrew North’s weekly meeting held at the Altamont Court Hotel in New Kingston on Monday (October 8).JamaicaEye, which was launched in March, is a public-private partnership designed to network CCTV cameras owned by the Ministry as well as accommodate feed from privately owned cameras.The feeds will provide useful footage in relation to criminal activities and other emergencies and will be monitored by a team of security professionals.With more than 200 registered partners already signed on to the system, Mr. Grant said the collaboration will secure many more cameras for the programme.“We are having discussions with some business associations that have hundreds and thousands of cameras. Although we have 200 registered partners, that actually translates to more than 200 cameras. We are working internally on how and at what pace we implement these across the government system,” he informed.He indicated that memoranda of understanding (MOU) will be established in the coming year to integrate more cameras into the system.Mr. Grant noted that the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) Public Safety and Traffic Enforcement Branch (PSTEB), which has also been using CCTV footage to assist with resource management, will also feed into JamaicaEye.“There are a lot of opportunities that we are looking for to start integrating and realising those benefits from the system,” he said.Meanwhile, Mr. Grant said the public response to JamaicaEye has been overwhelming.“Every week we have a number of community and business group engagements. They want to know how the programme works. They want to get camera specifications,” he noted.“We have been meeting with security companies, as well, and they are feeding the questions that their clients have to us… . We have a lot of support for the programme, and it is going well so far,” he added.last_img read more

Google Street View Goes Underwater For Those Who Never Will

first_imgWith the expectation that 90 percent of the world’s coral reefs will not survive past 2050, The Ocean Agency has a plan to protect the reefs most likely to survive.Using scientific study, The Ocean Agency’s 50 Reefs project aims to identify which of the reefs are least vulnerable to climate change; using communication, they plan to motivate and inspire governments, organisations and communities to protect them. Its nifty new Google Street View machine for underwater use will help.Rather than a camera on the top of a car, 50 Reef’s images are taken using a military grade underwater scooter that pulls the camerawoman along, two kilometres per dive along underwater corridors, and taking a 360-degree picture every three seconds. The imagery is a way to engage people in issues that they would not otherwise be aware of.“Most people don’t actually dive and never will,” says Ocean Agency co-founder Richard Ververs in a CBC interview. “I think it’s like 99.9 percent of people don’t dive. What I wanted to do with the camera that we invented was to allow people to have that experience of jumping in the water and to be able to explore an environment like, say, a coral reef, which to me is the most magical place on the planet.”Support for 50 Reefs comes from Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, The Tiffany & Co. Foundation, and from former New York City Mayor and the UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change, Michael Bloomberg, and his charity Bloomberg Philanthropies.“Without coral reefs,” says Bloomberg, “we could lose up to a quarter of the world’s marine biodiversity, and hundreds of millions of the world’s poorest people would lose their primary source of food and livelihoods. We must not allow this to happen.”Check out some of 50 Reefs’s images here.Copyright ©2017Look to the Starslast_img read more

acQuire introduces GIM Suite 3 for better geoscientific data management

first_imgGlobal mining software company and specialist in geoscientific information management (GIM) solutions, acQuire Technology Solutions Pty Ltd (acQuire), has released the latest version of its drillhole and sample data management software – GIM Suite 3. New features in GIM Suite 3 add to the array of capabilities already available in the software, creating an even more robust and secure system to manage geoscientific data assets. Reducing manual tasks and making data management more efficient were the key focus of this release.Geoscientific data is a strategic asset for resources companies providing a solid foundation for decisions in exploration, asset development and production. Well informed decisions need to be based on reliable data from a single source of truth. However, consolidating and managing drillhole data often requires manually running a large number of tasks.A major advance of the latest GIM Suite release is the introduction of automation to reduce time spent on repetitive and manual tasks such as importing and exporting data. Automation in acQuire’s software not only improves time management by reducing manually-run tasks, but also provides a more robust means for automating them. With status update notifications and a simple scheduling and setup wizard, there is greater visibility and control over automated jobs.The result – greater team productivity by giving companies more timely access to data for confident decision making. Steve Mundell, Director of Product, acQuire Technology Solutions said, “GIM Suite 3 continues to build on our commitment to providing market-leading software. In the context of the current climate in exploration and mining, this latest release delivers more efficiencies to our customers through automation and simplification. We always recommend our customers upgrade to the latest software release as soon as possible to ensure they get the most out of their technology and can take full advantage of the improvements.”In addition to the new automation capabilities of the software, enhancements have also been made to data imports, quality control analysis, licence management and workspace synchronisation. Other key features of the GIM Suite 3 release include:GIM Suite 3 has simplified and made data importing more robust for individual and large numbers of files to remove the risk of loading erroneous or incomplete data sets.Licence availability is improved with inactive floating licences able to be automatically returned to the licence pool.With new visualisations and statistical measures, quality control of analytical results is improved to provide an easier way to identify quality issues.last_img read more

Ukraine Jailed opposition leader goes on hunger strike as protests continue

first_imgJAILED UKRAINIAN OPPOSITION leader Yulia Tymoshenko has said she will begin a hunger strike over a government decision to scrap a key EU pact that has sparked huge protests.Her announcement came as President Viktor Yanukovych pleaded for calm after a second day of nationwide demonstrations over the move.“I am announcing an indefinite hunger strike demanding that (President Viktor) Yanukovych sign an association and free trade agreement with the EU,” former prime minister Tymoshenko was quoted by her party Batkivschyna as saying.“And if Yanukovych does not sign our agreement with the EU on November 29, wipe him off the face of Ukraine through peaceful and constitutional means together with his political and corruption metastases. Don’t stop! Go on and never look back,” said the fiery co-leader of the 2004 Orange Revolution.Breaking his silence for the first time since announcing the shock decision to put the EU talks on ice on Thursday, Yanukovych appealed for peace after police fired tear gas on pro-Europe protesters in central Kiev.“I want peace and calm in our big Ukrainian family,” Yanukovych said in a video statement posted on his official website. Eugenia Tymoshenko in front of a picture of her mother, the jailed former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko who has gone on hunger strike. Pic: AP Photo/Sergei Chuzavkov (File photo)Protesters are angry at Ukraine’s failure to sign a key pact seen as a first step toward EU membership that would have marked a historic break from the Kremlin by the ex-Soviet state.The decision came after the parliament failed to adopt legislation that would have freed jailed Tymoshenko, a key EU condition for the signing of the cooperation accord.Pledging to continue reforms, Yanukovych said he would not act “to the detriment of Ukraine and its people”.“No one will rob us of a dream about a Ukraine of equal opportunities, about a European Ukraine,” he said shortly before Tymoshenko announced her threat of an indefinite hunger strike.Yanukovych said that by postponing the country’s EU integration plans, he was shielding many vulnerable Ukrainians from economic hardship.“Just like a father cannot leave his family without bread, I do not have the right to leave people to the mercy of fate with the problems which may arise… if production comes to a halt (and) millions of citizens will be thrown out into the streets,” he said.“That is why I have to resort to difficult decisions.”Yesterday, tens of thousands protested in central Kiev in the biggest demonstration since the 2004 Orange Revolution overturned a rigged ballot and forced new elections.Another 20,000 returned to the streets of Kiev Monday evening, an AFP correspondent saw.- © AFP, 2013MORE: Tens of thousands protest in Kiev over EU agreement delaylast_img read more

Ulster Bank ATM services running as normal

first_imgULSTER BANK HAS said its services are now “running as normal” after a glitch that saw customers unable to access their accounts through ATMS.The disruption also impacted customers of NatWest and the Royal Bank of Scotland, which are also part of parent group RBS Group, in the UK. There were reports across Britain of people not being able to use online banking, telephone banking and cash withdrawals, as well as having no access to ATMs.Last night, the bank acknowledged that customers were experiencing difficulties and apologised for the problems.No further information is available this morning about the nature of the disruption.The message that services had resumed came about four hours after Ulster Bank, NatWest and RBS confirmed the issues on Twitter.Last year, a prolonged IT failure at Ulster Bank left 750,000 customers without any banking services for multiple weeks.

Microsoft demos speech translation using your own voice

first_imgTranslating speech in real-time is an ongoing problem a number of companies are trying to solve. Google and Microsoft already provide quite accurate web page translation, Google is working on conversation translation on Android, and recently NTT DoCoMo unveiled its voice translation phone. However, Microsoft Research has just jumped ahead of the competition by demonstrating the latest version of speech translation technology on stage in China.Typically, speech translation is output using an unnatural robotic voice, and/or typically doesn’t take into account the word order changes different languages use. Microsoft seems to have solved both those problems and took a huge step forward towards a universal translator.Rick Rashid, Microsoft’s Chief Research Officer, took to the stage at Microsoft Research’s 21st Century Computing event held in Tianjin, China to show off the tech. After a brief chat about how much language translation over the last 60 years, he went on to demonstrate his own voice being translated into Chinese pretty effectively, and most importantly the Chinese was spoken using his own voice.Microsoft has employed deep neural networks in order to achieve this. His English words are first translated into Chinese (the easy part), then the word order is changed to suit the new language ready for reading. After that, the Chinese is output using samples of his own voice. To achieve this, Microsoft took several hours of a native Chinese speaker’s voice and about an hour of Rashid’s speech. The system is then able to combine the two to produce a realistic-sounding Chinese version of Rashid.Microsoft admits there is still a lot of work to do on the system to make it sound more natural, and the words it can say naturally are currently quite limited. However, it does bode well for a future where whatever I say in English can be output perfectly in another language as if I actually said it.More at Next at Microsoftlast_img read more

Le Panasonic Lumix GF5 dévoilé par erreur

first_imgLe Panasonic Lumix GF5 dévoilé par erreur ?Des photographies se sont échappées sur le net depuis hier, laissant penser qu’il s’agissait du prochain Lumix GF5 de Panasonic. La faute à la porte-parole Hong-kongaise Angelababy ? La star aurait publié la fameuse photo du GF5 sur son Instagram. Du coup, la rumeur circule, et à en croire celle-ci, le fabricant ferait donc déjà évoluer sa gamme de ses appareils COI (compact à objectifs interchangeables, micro 4/3), si petits et si simples d’utilisation. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ? Selon la première photo en question, le design de ce nouvel appareil se rapprocherait grandement de celui du GF3, sortit il n’y a pas un an (le GF4 n’existe pas, dû à une superstition sur le chiffre 4 en Asie du sud-est). Il devrait surpasser un minimum les caractéristiques de son prédécesseur et atteindre les 12 mégapixels, une sensibilité de 12.800 ISO et améliorer les clichés en basse qualité ISO. Son écran tactile devrait également être amélioré (920.000 points) et l’interface revue et corrigée. L’autofocus quant à lui, serait très rapide, avec 0.09 secondes.

Palomar College opens new Veterans Resource Center

first_img Posted: March 16, 2018 Palomar College opens new Veterans Resource Center Updated: 6:23 PM March 16, 2018 KUSI Newsroom, center_img Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter SAN MARCOS (KUSI) — Palomar College officials unveiled the new Veterans Resource Center at the San Marcos campus during a ceremony on Friday.The new center combines functions and activities that were previously housed separately on campus into one centralized space, creating a one-stop shop for Palomar’s military-affiliated students.The new space includes multiple self-service computer stations for veterans to utilize in a large open space as well as a private study area and lounge. The college’s Veterans Services staff have private offices in the center, as well as a file/break room. All furniture for the space was graciously donated by bkm OfficeWorks.“It isn’t just about processing V.A. benefits,” said Veterans Services Supervisor Jessica Horn. “It’s the place where every military-affiliated student on campus has a family and a support system.”Having served approximately 5,000 visits since its soft opening in January, the Center provides veteran-to-veteran tutoring, peer-to-peer mentoring, behavioral health counseling, V.A. benefit certification, academic counseling and veteran-oriented workshops.During Friday’s ceremony, a number of college officials who are themselves veterans honored the Palomar military community in their comments.“It’s really exciting today that we’re able, in a small way, to give something back for all they’ve done for us,” said Palomar Community College District Governing Board President Paul McNamara, who is a retired U.S. Marine Corps Colonel.For more information about the Veterans Resource Center at Palomar College, please visit KUSI Newsroom last_img read more

Robins AFB Local Health Care Providers Look for Opportunities to Share Training

first_imgOfficials at Robins Air Force Base and community health care providers are exploring partnerships to provide training physicians, nurses and other primary care practitioners need to obtain continuing medical education credits.“The training requirement to keep our practitioners clinically current and competent is no different than the requirements for our pilots. The 78th MDG [Medical Group] simply cannot afford to keep doing business as it always has, and this is one way that we see a beneficial solution for the base and community,” said Col. Shari Silverman, commander of the 78th Medical Group.The installation, located in Middle Georgia, and community health care providers are hoping to cut travel costs by offering required training locally, reported Robins Public Affairs.With the same objective in mind, the 78th Dental Squadron last year hosted a dental conference that included continuing education training.“The conference not only builds local civilian-military dental professional alliances, it also gives regional dental military professionals the ability to get continuing education credits for the cost of essentially gas,” said Lt. Col. Rene Saenz, commander of the 78th Dental Squadron.Representatives from the 78th Civil Engineer Group and city and county offices also discussed the potential to collaborate on training opportunities at a meeting last month. In addition, the group looked at ways to partner with Houston County on paving projects.“The benefits for the training would be a cost savings by sharing the costs between us,” said Becky McCoy, 78th Civil Engineering Squadron director.Robins and the community have been forging partnerships for the past three years under the Air Force Community Partnership Program, according to the story. To date, the two have reached 100 agreements covering services such as fire protection, law enforcement, work study internships and youth recreation. Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

Texas Pays Wrongfully Convicted Inmates More Than Any Other State But Can

first_imgBrandi Grissom, Austin bureau chief for the Dallas Morning News, says that one of the most notable examples of the state’s criminal justice reform is its exoneration policy. In addition to  paying exonerated inmates a lump sum of $80,000 per year for each year spent wrongfully incarcerated, Texas also provides an annuity of the same amount, paid in monthly installments for the rest of the former inmate’s life. That amount is calculated based on how long the person was wrongfully incarcerated and can range from a few hundred, to several thousand dollars per month.Grissom says that since 1991, Texas has spent more than $109 million on 109 inmates who were wrongfully convicted. But in recent years, fewer exonerees have been identified, due in part to the growing price tag of exoneration. But Grissom notes that the state has adopted a number of reforms intended to prevent wrongful convictions in the first place. For example, prosecutors are now required to turn over their evidence to defense lawyers to improve transparency in the trial process. She says the decreasing number of convictions overturned based on DNA evidence has also had an effect on the number of exonerees.“The number of cases in which DNA still exists that could potentially exonerate someone who’s already imprisoned has pretty drastically dwindled,” Grissom said. “We saw a big spike in those cases back in the early 2000s when (the DNA) first became available, but most of that DNA that could be tested has now been tested. What remains in terms of evidence that might be available to help people prove their innocence is much more difficult to prove in a court of law.” Written by Rachel Zein.Copyright 2017 KUT 90.5. To see more, visit KUT 90.5. AUSTIN PRICE /KUTFrom Texas Standard:Texas’ reputation as a law-and-order state often overshadows the fact that the state leads the nation in some aspects of criminal justice reform. But that reform carries a rather high price tag – one that might be greater than what many lawmakers initially imagined.center_img Sharelast_img read more

Eckel, M.D. Understanding the Breast Biopsy Evaluation Process DNA confirmation helps reduce medical errors and ensures proper patient care As a result of routine mammography screening, approximately 1.6 million breast biopsies are performed annually to determine whether a suspicious lesion is malignant or benign. Of these 1.6 million biopsies, approximately 20 percent will result in a positive cancer diagnosis.[1] These numbers are staggering alone, and are just the statistics for one out of more than 200 types of cancers. As radiologists, we strive to provide our patients with the best medical care available, but what we do not always think about is what happens after a sample leaves our office. Errors that occur in the biopsy diagnostic process are specific diagnostic errors that imaging professionals must address. A Complex ProcessImaging professionals are often one of the first points of contact for patients during the biopsy process, but certainly are not the last. Within the biopsy process the most common errors involve the specimen being mislabeled or contaminated during the routine biopsy evaluation process. These potential errors are referred to as specimen provenance complications (SPCs). However, the possibility for human error is present at every stage of this process, especially since several different people are involved and many steps take place in separate locations. After biopsy sample is taken, the tissue sample moves through a complex 18-step process, no matter if an internal or reference lab is used. In the pre-analytic phase, specimens are collected, labeled, transported and accessioned into the pathology lab. The next step is the analytic phase, where the specimens are examined grossly, dissected and prepared for analysis. This involves placing them into cassettes, which are then processed through a chemical bath that produces a final wax tissue block. A small cut of tissue from the block is then placed on a slide. Finally, in the post analytic phase, the slides are delivered to the pathologist for review, along with the accompanying paperwork for each patient. Given the complex nature of the diagnostic testing cycle, and the potentially devastating ramifications of incorrect diagnosis, preventing diagnostic mistakes due to SPCs is crucial for the medical staff involved in the biopsy process and the patient.How Often Does This Happen?It is estimated that approximately 1 percent of all surgical biopsies are subject to undetected tissue transposition or contamination, which could lead to a cancer diagnosis being assigned to the wrong patient, ultimately leading to inappropriate or delayed treatment. These events not only result in harm to patients, but often have serious legal implications for the healthcare providers responsible for the error. Anecdotally, I have heard of several such instances from colleagues over the years.DNA’s Role in the Evaluation ProcessAt Women’s Breast Center in Santa Monica, Calif., the Know Error system is used for breast biopsies, which has added minimal disruption to the practice’s standard processes. At the time of the biopsy procedure, a buccal swab of the patient’s cheek is taken to obtain a DNA reference sample. Then the swab is sent to an independent DNA laboratory. The biopsy tissue samples are collected as usual, then placed in bar-coded specimen containers matching that of the buccal swab, and sent to the pathology lab for evaluation. If a malignancy is found in a biopsy sample, a DNA specimen provenance assignment (DSPA) test is completed to compare the DNA profiles of the biopsy tissue and DNA reference sample. Concurrence of these profiles allows for absolute confirmation of patient identity, and is imperative before any diagnosis or treatment course is rendered. Since implementing the DSPA program, our staff has helped ensure that the many women who receive biopsies at our practice are getting the most accurate information possible.Adding this DNA confirmation — or taking a DNA timeout — completes the diagnostic testing cycle and protects radiologists and patients alike. Moreover, the power of DNA confirmation reduces unnecessary medical errors and helps fulfill the promise we provide to our patients who entrust us with their care.  itnGregory Eckel, M.D., is the chief of breast intervention at Harbor UCLA Medical Center, an associate clinical professor of radiology at UCLA, and a clinical breast radiologist at the Women’s Breast Center in Santa Monica, Calif.Reference1. Silverstein, M.J., et al. “Image-detected breast cancer: State of the art diagnosis and treatment. “ J Am Coll Surg 2005; 201(4), 586-597.

Thousands disrupted as PO cancels Pacific Jewel

first_imgA faulty propulsion system has forced P&O Cruises to cancel its 11-night Pacific Sunsets cruise, which was due to depart Sydney on the Pacific Jewel tomorrow.The problems with the propulsion system were identified by the ship’s engineers, with further complications rendering the cancellation necessary, P&O said.The damages to the section proved worse than initially thought and have since delayed the scheduled return of the liner, which is currently on its way back to Sydney from Noumea at a reduced cruising speed.P&O Cruises apologised to passengers for “the unavoidable cancellation of this week’s scheduled Pacific Jewel cruise to Vanuatu and New Caledonia” in a media release earlier today. The 2,000-odd passengers on the cancelled cruise have been offered a full refund of their cruise fare plus a 25 per cent credit on a future P&O Cruises’ booking booked and deposited before December 31 for all cruises which depart before March 31, 2011. “There is some availability on future cruises and P&O Cruises will be working very hard to find alternative cruise arrangements for affected passengers,” P&O said.Additional to the full refund and credit, passengers are also entitled to claim for reasonable out-of-pocket expenses caused by the cancellation of the cruise.

As I reported a while back SEA was high on Tarvar

first_imgAs I reported a while back, SEA was high on Tarvaris Jackson. He will sign there. Matt Leinart likely, too. Seahawks out of Kolb sweepstakesless than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® Favorite Retweet ReplyJason La CanforaJasonLaCanfora Top Stories 0 Comments   Share   In what is becoming a fairly intense game of chicken, the Cardinals may have a little more leverage in their negotiations with the Eagles for Kevin Kolb. Disregarding the hilarity of the Seahawks entering a season with Charlie Whitehurst, Jackson and Leinart as their QBs, the key for Arizona is the fact that Seattle is no longer in the running for Kolb.Does that mean his price tag will come down a bit? Possibly, though there is a chance that the reason teams are bowing out of the race for Kolb is because they know the Cardinals have already won.
