first_imgEDMONTON – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is steering clear of recent criticism over delays into the inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women.Trudeau said Saturday that it’s essential to have an inquiry to help put an end to what he calls an “ongoing national tragedy.”But he said in Edmonton Saturday that the government is trusting the inquiry’s commissioners to accomplish that goal.The chief commissioner responded Friday to criticisms about delays in the inquiry.Marion Buller says some “tremendous work” has already been done but blames poor communications for that information not getting to the public.She said part of the reason for the delays is that commissioners are taking a different path than previous courtroom style inquiries.She said they’re taking an indigenous approach that will do no further harm to the victims and their families, something that can’t be rolled out quickly.last_img read more

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – After a slow start, at least for Bill O’Reilly, his new book is gaining momentum.O’Reilly’s “Killing England” had increased sales in its second week, an unusual feat for a high-profile release. His first “Killing” work since being forced out of Fox News last spring amid numerous allegations of sexual assault sold 71,000 copies, compared with 65,000 the week before. According to NBD BookScan, which tracks around 85 per cent of retail sales, it was last week’s top nonfiction seller.Pre-sales for “Killing England” were well below those for last year’s “Killing the Rising Sun.” But his new book was helped by a surprise appearance on Fox, where he was interviewed by Sean Hannity, and has been in the top 10 on since its Sept. 19 release.last_img read more

first_imgChennai/ Vellore: A day after income tax (I-T) raids in Karnataka led to a national political storm, I-T sleuths on Saturday conducted searches at the premises of senior DMK leader Duraimurugan in neighbouring Tamil Nadu’s Vellore district over suspected use of unaccounted money for electioneering and seized Rs 10 lakh of alleged “excess” cash. The TN raids have once again raised eyebrows and are being viewed by political observers with suspicion as the Election Commission of India’s (EC’s) Model Code of Conduct is currently being observed. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c detailsHigh drama was witnessed when DMK legal cell functionaries refused to allow teams of the tax department’s election surveillance and monitoring and district static surveillance and flying squads to hold searches without a “warrant”. Later, senior tax officials armed with search warrants conducted raids. Searches have been conducted at Duraimurugan’s residence, where some printouts with ward numbers written over them were found but the “main person,” indicating assessee, has dismissed them as “junk” and further questioning is on, said a highly placed sources in tax investigation wing. About Rs 19 lakh cash was found. After allowing cash declared in election affidavit, an amount of Rs 10 lakh was “determined as excess” and seized, the source said. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday”We did not conceal anything,” said Duraimurugan, adding that all his family members are income tax assessees. He confirmed that Rs 10 lakh was seized and said it was common to have cash on hand. Tax department sources said searches were carried out in the campus of a college run by the DMK’s leader’s family, including in the teaching and hostel blocks. The administrative block is “being searched”, the sources added. A farmhouse said to be belonging to a close confidant was also searched. The I-T department officials, along with personnel from the election flying squad, arrived late on Friday night at the residence of the DMK treasurer. I-T department sources earlier in the day indicated that searches were carried out to detect suspected tax evasion vis-a-vis use of unaccounted money for electioneering. The DMK has fielded Duraimurugan’s son D M Kathir Anand from the Vellore seat in the coming Lok Sabha polls. Duraimurugan alleged that the raids were a “conspiracy” by some political leaders who could not face them in the electoral arena. “They (tax officials) have gone with the understanding that we have nothing (to hide),” he told reporters.last_img read more

Connor Halliday2.7 Blake Sims9.7 Brett Hundley39.8 Rakeem Cato15.8 Taylor Heinicke8.8 Jameis Winston60.8 Garrett Grayson17.0 Marcus Mariota64.1 Grant Hedrick10.1 PLAYERFOUR-YEAR PROJECTED TOTAL QBR Anthony Boone10.2 Shane Carden8.3 We’ve heard the debate for so long that its edges have nearly gone dull: Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota? Who should go first?If there were a formula for how to choose a No. 1 quarterback in the NFL draft, Tom Brady would have gone No. 1 overall and JaMarcus Russell would have been lucky to be selected 199th. This stuff is hard, especially when you consider the stakes. Missing on a first-round quarterback can set a franchise back for years. Because of the “boom or bust” nature of the position, selecting a quarterback, particularly in the first round, is riskier than selecting a player in any other position.What, then, to do about Winston versus Mariota this Thursday? Build a model, of course. This year, ESPN’s Production Analytics crew created a QB model to help teams reduce the risk of drafting the wrong quarterback. Like all models, this one had a few outliers, but it would have predicted that Andrew Luck would be the top QB in the last three draft classes, that Russell Wilson would be far better than his third-round grade, and that first-rounders Brandon Weeden and EJ Manuel would be below-average quarterbacks — and of course that’s without using those years of data to fit the model.1The model is based on 122 quarterbacks from the 2005 to 2011 NFL drafts. The model’s opinion on this year’s top two: Mariota — not Winston — is the top prospect.The goal of the model is to predict a player’s Total Quarterback Rating over his first four years in the league, which is generally the length of his rookie contract. The main inputs into the projections were a player’s college stats (adjusted for defenses faced),2Expected points added (EPA), the backbone of QBR and many other NFL models, was used to measure quarterback success in college. We adjusted for opposing defenses faced to measure a QB’s success in college, and EPA/play was used as an output to project QBR. Because of small sample sizes, stabilization techniques were also applied to obtain less volatile measures of success. combine/physical measurements, scout grades and play-type frequencies in college. After determining which factors mattered most,3To do this, we used a censored regression, using Bayesian information criteria as the variable selection criteria. Prospects that never played in the NFL or players that performed worse than replacement level were left censored. the model projected a player’s NFL success in four categories — on passing plays, on running plays, how many sacks he’s likely to take, and how many penalties he’s likely to incur — over his first four seasons. These play-type projections and how often each play is expected to occur4A random forest model was used to project NFL play-type frequencies using the same set of predictor variables from the censored regression. Only players that had at least 300 NFL action plays were used to fit this model. were combined to produce the QBR projections.Not surprisingly, scout grades5Mel Kiper and Scouts Inc. were used for the grades. were the most significant predictor of quarterback success. Scouts have the luxury of knowing things that aren’t completely captured in college stats, and they generally do a good job measuring a quarterback’s passing capabilities. Where the scouts fall short, however, is their evaluation of efficient rushing quarterbacks.The model found that players who were effective rushers were generally undervalued by scouts. That does not mean that every player who runs for 1,000 yards in college will be a good NFL quarterback; rather, the quarterbacks who are efficient runners have an ability to extend drives that serves them well in the NFL. For example, Luck ran for 150 yards in his final college season but was one of the more effective college rushers, converting a first down on 39 percent of his rushes (excluding sacks). Once in the NFL, Luck has been one of the best scramblers in the league and was the most efficient rushing quarterback in 2013.The added rushing component is also a major reason that Wilson was projected to be one of the top quarterbacks in his class (47.3 projected QBR) but only the eighth-best quarterback by Scouts Inc.Winston had a better Scouts Inc. grade, but Mariota’s better rushing stats and combine tests helped him beat out Winston in the model’s approach. Cody Fajardo12.0 Sean Mannion9.1 Brandon Bridge5.3 Bryce Petty24.5 The model did not explicitly take into account the sexual assault allegation made against Winston or his off-field transgressions — although those were likely baked into the scout grades, which were a part of the model.Out of the 67 players evaluated in the 2012 to 2015 draft classes, Mariota was the most efficient rusher on a per-play basis. Excluding sacks, he averaged 9.8 yards per rush attempt in his college career and gained a first down on 41 percent of those plays. Winston, on the other hand, ranked 29th in per-play rushing efficiency and gained a first down on 24 percent of his carries.Mariota and Winston are each projected to be above-average quarterbacks in their first four years in the league, but they are far from the elite level that the model projected for Luck (79.2 projected QBR) when he came out of college. Their four-year projections are closer to the expectations for Robert Griffin III entering the 2012 draft.After Mariota and Winston, Brett Hundley is expected to be the third-best quarterback in the class, but there is a clear gap between the top two QBs and the rest of the prospects. Like Mariota, Hundley is athletic and ranks in the top 10 in per-play rushing. Other models look favorably upon Hundley, making many believe he could be the sleeper of the 2015 draft class.The rest of the 2015 QB class is expected to perform at the level of replacement level QBs.6Defined as a player with a QBR of 25 or lower.No one model can perfectly predict NFL quarterback success, but looking at what numbers have mattered in the past tells us that we will be lucky to have three players come out of this draft class who will have long-term NFL success. read more

first_imgLoppsi 2 : le filtrage du web sans juge adopté au ParlementLe Parlement a définitivement adopté le texte du projet de loi d’orientation et de programmation pour la performance de la sécurité intérieure (Loppsi 2), qui prévoit notamment le blocage de sites à caractère pédopornographique sans intervention d’un juge.Mesure permettant la prévention contre la pédopornographie ou censure de l’Internet par l’Etat ? Si la loi Loppsi 2 se veut, en partie, la garante de la protection de l’enfance, son adoption par le Parlement soulève néanmoins des questions sur la notion de liberté sur le web. Car sur le chapitre du numérique, cette loi d’orientation et de programmation pour la performance de la sécurité intérieure prévoit une tutelle directe du ministère de l’Intérieur sans passage devant la justice. C’est notamment le cas sur la question des sites à caractère pédopornographique.À lire aussi”Choc Climatique” : les propositions du Sénat pour que la France agisseEn effet, Loppsi 2 permettra à l’Etat de bloquer directement ce type de sites, sans l’avis d’un juge. Une disposition qui soulève le courroux de l’opposition, qui dénonce un “filtrage administratif d’Internet via le cheval de Troie de la protection de l’enfance”. “Le rejet de la supervision par le juge illustre clairement la volonté de l’exécutif de contrôler Internet (…). Il s’agit d’une dérive d’autant plus inquiétante que le filtrage administratif pourra être étendu à d’autres domaines”, a ainsi commenté le député Vert Noël Mamère. Un avertissement déjà adressé par La Quadrature du Net, un collectif citoyen qui parle d’un “faux prétexte visant à légitimer le filtrage administratif d’Internet, et à déployer une infrastructure technique de censure (…). Nul ne pourra contrôler la façon dont ces mesures de filtrage seront mises en place, pas même un juge, et il n’y aura aucun moyen de s’y opposer puisque les sites bloqués seront consignés dans une liste noire secrète”. Si de son côté, le ministre de l’Intérieur Brice Hotefeux a salué une “boîte à outils à la disposition de la protection et la sécurité de nos concitoyens”, il n’est pas sûr que le Conseil Constitutionnel valide la loi.

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) — The number of people seeking unemployment benefits fell last week below 400,000 for the first time in four months, a sign that the job market may be improving slowly after a recent slump.Applications for unemployment aid dropped by 7,000 to a seasonally adjusted 395,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. Applications had been above 400,000 for the previous 17 weeks.The four-week average, a less-volatile figure, fell to 405,000, its sixth straight decline and the lowest level since mid-April. That suggests layoffs have eased.The decline in applications helped lift stocks. The Dow Jones industrial average rose more than 85 points in the first hour of trading.Applications fell in February to 375,000, a level that reflects healthy job growth. They soared to an eight-month high of 478,000 in late April, and have declined slowly since then.There were fewer layoffs last week in the manufacturing, transportation and service industries, according to the report. Only nine states reported an increase in applications.Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics said the decline shows the job market is at least not getting worse.“Of course, it tells us nothing about hiring, which the market turmoil of recent weeks will not have helped,” said Dales, noting the 16 percent decline in the Dow Jones industrial average since July 21.The economy added 117,000 net jobs in July, the government said last week. That was an improvement from the previous two months. But it’s far below the average of 215,000 jobs per month that companies created from February through April.last_img read more

first_img Image courtesy of Siteman Cancer CenterJanuary 14, 2015 — More than 100 cancer patients have received an innovative form of radiation therapy at the S. Lee Kling Center for Proton Therapy in its first year of operation. The treatments, which utilize the world’s first proton system of its kind, are provided at Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.The new technology delivers the same targeted, noninvasive treatments as conventional proton systems but is considerably smaller in size and costs less.Since December 2013, the new system:· Has delivered more than 6,700 clinical proton treatment fields to 118 patients. (One treatment field equals the use of a single proton beam. Each patient receives two or three treatment fields per therapy session.) Of those patients, about 25 percent were children and 75 percent were adults· Has addressed a variety of complex tumors. Of adult tumors treated, 43 percent were in the brain, 27 percent were in the lungs, 11 percent were in the prostate and 8 percent were in the esophagus· Has treated more than 20 patients in a single dayA superconducting synchrocyclotron proton accelerator is a key component of the proton therapy system. The relatively small size of the device allows it to fit in a single room that isn’t much larger than a traditional radiation therapy room. The cost of this single-vault proton therapy system was about $25 million. That represents a fraction of the investment needed for traditional proton therapy systems, which typically are housed in football field-sized buildings and cost more than $150 million.Littleton, Mass.-based Mevion Medical Systems developed and manufactured the technology, called the Mevion S250 Proton Therapy System. Radiation oncologists and physicists at Washington University worked with Mevion to develop and refine the proton therapy technology.The proton therapy center was named after the late S. Lee Kling, a visionary St. Louisan who traveled to the East Coast to receive proton therapy for an eye tumor. Kling, a former chairman of The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital’s board of directors, believed the therapy should be more accessible and available to patients in St. Louis. As a result, Kling, along with family and friends, established the S. Lee Kling chair in radiation oncology — held by Bradley — to help lead the proton center’s development and to conduct research into the most effective ways to use this new technology.The center serves the St. Louis region and the Midwest. The next closest location offering proton therapy is in the Chicago area, about 280 miles away.????????????????????For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | January 14, 2015 S.

first_img Actress Jane Fonda speaks at the Respect Rally Park City during the 2018 Sundance Film Festival on Saturday, Jan. 20, 2018, in Park City, Utah. (Photo by Danny Moloshok/Invision/AP) Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Jane Fonda and Gloria Allred were all born within eight years of one another — 1933, 1937 and 1941. While their trajectories couldn’t be more different, they’re also similar in some ways. Each went on to defy expectations of their time and become powerhouse representatives of women, and all are getting the spotlight this year in three films playing at the Sundance Film Festival.Ginsburg soldiered through sexist obstacles, like the Dean of Harvard Law School asking “How do you justify taking a spot from a qualified man?” to become the second female Supreme Court Justice in history. Allred devoted her energy to the often thankless task of taking on powerful men like Bill Cosby and Donald Trump (and more recently Harvey Weinstein) on behalf of powerless women. And Fonda eschewed a life of comforts as the beautiful daughter of Hollywood royalty to become a self-actualized activist.Director Susan Lacy’s “Jane Fonda in Five Acts,” an HBO Films production that will air sometime this year, is an unflinching account of Fonda’s life told through archive footage and new interviews with Fonda, who reflects on everything from her mother’s suicide and her eating disorder to the Hanoi Jane infamy and history-making workout videotape with heart wrenching (and warming) candour and insight. It is the story of, as she says at age 80 and in the beginning of her last act, becoming a “fully realized Jane” separate from a man, whether it’s her various husbands (“none of my marriages were democratic,” she said), or the shadow of Henry Fonda, who was quite distant as a father but took the time to call her fat when she was growing up.“I think Jane’s story has resonance for women of all ages and experiences,” Lacy said in her director’s statement. “Hopefully, viewers of this film will see a woman of courage and spunk whose life is an example of how change and growth are possible at any age,”In the case of Ginsburg, “RBG” directors Julie Cohen and Betsy West saw an opportunity to put a spotlight the newly “internet famous” Associate Justice.“Justice Ginsburg started to gain some fame as the ‘Notorious RBG’ in the wake of some of her blistering dissents in 2013 and 2014,” West said. “She became a kind of internet sensation and Julie and I, great admirers of Justice Ginsburg, realized that a lot of her new fans didn’t know the whole story and didn’t understand the role that she played in changing the laws affecting men and women in this country.”The film looks at her childhood (climbing on garage roofs and wanting to do what the boys did), her exceptionally supportive husband, some of her early triumphs for women, her friendship with Antonin Scalia, her love of opera and, yes, that workout that you may have heard about (you see Ginsburg holding a plank like a boss).“By schooling people in some of the legal history of the women’s rights movement and some of the things that Justice Ginsburg achieved earlier in her career, we’re trying to create sort of an emotional experience,” Cohen said. “We want people leaving the theatre feeling happy and inspired.”Sophie Sartain and Roberta Grossman meanwhile started documenting women’s rights attorney Gloria Allred long before Me Too and sexual misconduct became the story of the moment — and even before the Bill Cosby accusers started getting significant attention.The Netflix original documentary premieres on the streaming service on Feb. 9.Their voices don’t stop on the screen, either, and all three women attended and spoke at the festival.Both Allred, 76, and Fonda, 80, led the Respect Rally over the weekend, giving speeches to those who dared to brave the freezing temperatures and talking about this extraordinary moment for women.“This is the year that women’s voices have been heard, the year when women broke our silence about the injustices we have suffered, and the year where we said to rich, powerful, famous men you can break our hearts, but you cannot break our spirit,” Allred said to the Park City crowd Saturday.Ginsburg, too, in conversation Nina Totenberg on a Sundance panel, said “every woman of my vintage knows what sexual harassment is” though she said they didn’t have a name for it then.“For so long women were silent,” said Ginsburg, 84. “I think it’s about time.___Follow AP Film Writer Lindsey Bahr on Twitter: 3 trailblazing women get the spotlight in Sundance docscenter_img by Lindsey Bahr, The Associated Press Posted Jan 24, 2018 9:56 am PDT Last Updated Jan 24, 2018 at 10:20 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emaillast_img read more

first_imgBy George PsyllidesTurkey resuming seismic surveys inside the island’s exclusive economic zone would be a negative development as regards its intentions on the Cyprus problem, the government said on Friday, as it adopted a wait-and-see policy over the matter.Government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides was commenting on Turkish Cypriot media reports that Turkey was planning to resume seismic surveys off the island’s southern coast if companies licensed by the Republic carried out hydrocarbon exploration.The spokesman said the two matters were not linked.“There is absolutely no relation between the two,” Christodoulides said.surveys carried out between October 20 and December 30 by research vessel Barbaros, now anchored off the occupied port of Famagusta, prompted President Nicos Anastasiades to pull out of reunification talks.The government has said the withdrawal of the Barbaros from the EEZ was only one of two preconditions for the resumption of negotiations.The other would be a “tangible demonstration” on Turkey’s part that it respects Cyprus’ sovereignty.If the report is true it would be a negative development, especially in relation with Turkey’s real intentions in the Cyprus problem, the spokesman said.“We must wait and see how things develop; it is clearly up to Turkey whether the dialogue would restart,” Christodoulides said. “We hope that logic prevails and Turkey realised where its interests lie.”A drillship belonging to Italian-Korean consortium ENI-KOGAS was expected to start drilling soon in Amathusa, a site located inside block 9 of Cyprus EEZ.The Amathusa prospect is located some 55 kilometers from the Onasagoras well, where recent exploratory drilling did not yield commercially exploitable reserves of natural gas.The Onasagoras drill is what prompted the deployment of Barbaros by Turkey, which claims it is protecting the rights of Turkish Cypriots.Turkey and the north’s breakaway regime oppose the “unilateral” move by Greek Cypriots to prospect for hydrocarbons, saying both communities should equitably share in the island’s natural resources.Greek Cypriots say both communities will reap the benefits when the island is reunited.United Nations Special Adviser Espen Barth Eide has said that the hydrocarbon reserves off the coast of Cyprus were connected to the Cyprus problem and this connection could not be broken.In an interview local media, Eide said it was a strong argument for everyone to double their efforts to reach a solution.Christodoulides said the connection is “that it constitutes a powerful incentive for Turkish Cypriots and Turkey to go ahead with a solution.”“This is the link to us, and we hope Turkey will also approach it this way so that it finally works towards a solution.”Eide’s comment was criticised by political parties.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue BookYou Won’t Believe How Affordable These Ford Car Models AreKelley Blue BookUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
