Half Dental closes patients sent elsewhere

first_imgHalf Dental in Vancouver has closed after an investigation revealed the corporate structure of the dental office failed to meet the state’s legal requirements. The dental service chain closed its office in Hazel Dell, at 910 N. E. Minnehaha St. Suite 12, on Oct. 30, an official confirmed. “Half Dental in Washington ceases to exist,” said Jarrett Clark, director of marketing for Half Dental’s corporate office in Las Vegas. The franchise-based company also has locations in Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Idaho and California.Patients have been notified and are being funneled to Gentle Dental, which is located in the same Hazel Dell neighborhood as Half Dental and has several local offices, Clark added. “They’re a great organization and we felt that they were the best option to ensure that all of our patients were adequately cared for,” he said. In June, the Washington Department of Health’s Secretary of Health said it would issue a cease and desist order to Half Dental after a complaint-driven review revealed that the company’s corporate structure violated state law, said Kelly Stowe, a spokeswoman for the Washington Department of Health. Washington law requires the owner of a dental facility to be a licensed dentist. The filing was against Implants Dentures and Dental Inc., doing business as Half Dental Inc.; Richard Blanchard; Brandon D’Haenens and John Doe.last_img read more

Hurricane Andrew devastated South Florida 26 years ago today

first_img Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. (WSVN) – It’s hard to imagine, but Friday marks the 26th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew. Those who lived through it will never the morning of August 24th, 1992.The category 5 storm packed 165 mph winds and spawned hundreds of tornadoes. Andrew left thousands of businesses and homes destroyed. The storm cost more than $26 billion in damage; 43 deaths in the U.S. were blamed on the storm.Andrew was one of only three category 5 hurricanes to make landfall in the U.S., and is still the most recent, according to the National Weather Service. Hurricane Katrina in 2005 was a category 5 storm in the Gulf of Mexico, but weakened to a category 3 by landfall.As the days went by, people struggled to find food, water and shelter in the blazing heat. Federal and state disaster relief was slow to coordinate, prompting harsh words from the head of Dade County’s emergency operations, Kate Hale.“We’re doing everything we can. Where in the hell is the calvary on this one?” Hale said.Help finally did come. Troops brought in food, supplies and tents for 160,000 people left homeless.Andrew was the first named system of the 1992 hurricane season and will always stand as a reminder that it only takes one to make hurricane season a disaster. last_img read more

WATCH GOP House Candidate Charged With Assault Of A Reporter

first_img Share House Speaker Paul Ryan is calling on the Republican candidate in the nationally-watched election for Montana’s congressional seat to apologize in the alleged assault on a reporter. Voters are deciding in the special election whether Republican Greg Gianforte or Democrat Rob Quist will fill the U.S. House seat left vacant when Ryan Zinke resigned to join President Donald Trump’s Cabinet as secretary of the Interior Department. Gianforte, who has tried to align himself with Trump, defended himself as the criminal charge was announced Wednesday, saying the reporter was being aggressive and grabbed him by the wrist in their exchange at his campaign office. Quist has declined to comment on the charge. Though Ryan called on the candidate to apologize, he would not say if Gianforte should be barred from joining the House GOP conference if he wins Thursday’s election. “I’m gonna let the people of Montana decide who they want as their representative,” Ryan said. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called Gianforte “a wannabe Trump.” “That’s his model, Donald Trump,” she said. It’s not clear how the last-minute curveball will affect the race, which was partly seen as a referendum on Trump’s presidency, in part because more than a third of the state’s registered voters cast absentee ballots before polls opened Thursday. Gallatin County Sheriff Brian Gootkin made the announcement shortly before midnight Wednesday in a written statement, about six hours after the attack on reporter Ben Jacobs of The Guardian. Gianforte would face a maximum $500 fine or 6 months in jail if convicted. The statement added that Jacobs’ injuries did not meet the legal definition of felony assault. Gianforte was in a private office preparing for an interview with Fox News when Jacobs came in without permission, campaign spokesman Shane Scanlon said.Video Playerhttps://cdn.hpm.io/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/25115711/US-Pelosi-Ryan-CR.mp400:0000:0001:22Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.House Speaker Paul Ryan is calling for the Republican candidate in Montana’s special House election to apologize after allegedly attacking a reporter. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi also called Greg Gianforte a “wannabe Donald Trump” (May 25). The Fox News crew watched in astonishment as, after Jacobs pressed him on the GOP health care bill, “Gianforte grabbed Jacobs by the neck with both hands and slammed him into the ground behind him,” Fox News reporter Alicia Acuna wrote in an article . She added that Gianforte then began to punch Jacobs. In an audio recording posted by The Guardian, the reporter asks the congressional candidate about the GOP’s health care bill, which was just evaluated hours earlier by the Congressional Budget Office. “We’ll talk to you about that later,” Gianforte says on the recording, referring Jacobs to a spokesman. When Jacobs says that there won’t be time, Gianforte says “Just–” and there is a crashing sound. Gianforte yells, “The last guy who came here did the same thing,” and a shaken-sounded Jacobs tells the candidate he just body-slammed him. “Get the hell out of here,” Gianforte says. The Gianforte campaign Wednesday night released a statement blaming the incident on Jacobs. It contends he “aggressively shoved a recorder in Greg’s face and began asking badgering questions” before being asked to leave. Gianforte asked Jacobs to lower a phone that was being used as an audio recorder, then tried to grab it, the campaign said in a statement. Jacobs then grabbed Gianforte’s wrist and both fell to the ground, Scanlon said. The 45-second recording does not contain a request from Gianforte that Jacobs lower his phone. Acuna, the Fox News reporter, wrote that “at no point did any of us who witnessed this assault see Jacobs show any form of physical aggression toward Gianforte.” The sheriff’s office said Gianforte has until June 7 to appear in court on the charge. Jacobs told ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Thursday that he never touched Gianforte. He said of the politician’s account “The only thing that is factually correct … is my name and place of employment.” Three of Montana’s biggest newspapers pulled their endorsements of Gianforte but did not endorse an opponent. “We are also sick and tired — of Gianforte’s incessant attacks on the free press,” the Helena Independent Record wrote. Gianforte, a wealthy businessman, lost a race against Montana’s Democratic governor in November while Trump won the state by 20 points. In the congressional race, Gianforte has been boosted by visits from Vice President Mike Pence and Donald Trump, Jr. Hours before Wednesday’s assault, the Gianforte campaign sent out a last-minute fundraising appeal to its supporters, saying the outcome “will determine whether we pass Donald Trump’s America First agenda or if the fake news media and the national Democrats will win, keeping Obama’s reckless policies in place.” Democrats were hoping an upset would send a message to the GOP that Trump’s souring approval ratings could damage their political fortunes even in deep red states. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee announced that it would launch as many Facebook ads as possible about the assault, targeting Montana Democrats who might not otherwise vote Thursday. The Committee called for Gianforte to quit the race. Scott Sales, the Republican president of Montana’s state senate, unsuccessfully vied against Gianforte for his party’s congressional nomination. On Wednesday evening, he said he could not understand why the scuffle took place. “There’s always two sides to a story, but this doesn’t look good,” Sales said. “It’s not what you want to see happen on the eve of an election.” Video Playerhttps://cdn.hpm.io/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/25115642/US-Montana-Candidate-CR.mp400:0000:0001:48Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.The Republican candidate for Montana’s US House Seat, Greg Gianforte, is charged with misdemeanor assault of a reporter, hours before polls open, on May 25th, 2017.

Trump Says He Will Void Birthright Citizenship Law through Executive Order

first_img Share Updated at 10:45 a.m. ETPresident Trump is planning to use an executive order to strip birthright citizenship from America’s laws, rather than trying to change the Constitution through an act of Congress. The potential move, which would likely trigger numerous legal challenges, would seek to end the conferring of citizenship to children of noncitizens who are born in the U.S. — which is currently guaranteed by the 14th Amendment.“It was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment. Guess what? You don’t,” Trump said. He discussed the plan in an interview with Axios on HBO that is slated to air Sunday.Birthright citizenship is granted in the 14th Amendment’s first sentence: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”The concept is based on jus soli — “right of the soil” — meaning that children born in the U.S. have a claim to citizenship, even if their parents lack legal documentation to be in the country.Trump has mentioned the idea of voiding the amendment before, most notably in August of 2015, when the birthright issue became part of his hard-line policies on immigration as a presidential candidate. Now Trump is discussing the birthright citizenship law roughly one week before U.S. voters will head to the polls for the 2018 midterm election.The amendment became law in 1868, as a rebuke to the Supreme Court’s Dred Scott decision, which held that freed slaves were not U.S. citizens. Since then, its meaning and reach have been debated in courtrooms and in American society, with many questions centering on the phrase “the jurisdiction thereof.”“That means that they are subject to the laws of the United States, that they can, for example, be prosecuted for violating American law,” constitutional law professor Suzanna Sherry told NPR in 2015.The law excludes the children of foreign diplomats — and in the 1860s, it was intended to give peace of mind to immigrants.As Sherry, who teaches at Vanderbilt University, told NPR in 2015, “the United States had experienced quite a bit of immigration, and immigration was viewed as a very good thing. And so this was essentially putting out a welcome mat to immigrants by ensuring that their children born here would be citizens.”To change the law, Sherry said, you would need to either amend the 14th Amendment through Congress or ask the Supreme Court to overturn its earlier interpretation of the law and limit its benefit to people who are in the U.S. legally.The president says he has the power to act on his own.“You can definitely do it with an act of Congress,” Trump said in the Axios on HBO interview. “But now they’re saying I can do it just with an executive order.”He added, “We’re the only country in the world where a person comes in, has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States for 85 years, with all of those benefits. It’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous, and it has to end.”Birthright citizenship is the law of at least 30 countries, including many U.S. neighbors in North and South America. All of the countries in Europe grant citizenship by jus sanguinis — by “right of blood.”The president said he has spoken about the issue with the White House counsel. As for when it might happen, Trump said, “It’s in the process. It’ll happen — with an executive order.”Responding to the president’s words, Mark Krikorian, the executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, predicted, “This will set up the court fight.”CIS identifies itself as a nonpartisan think tank, but it has called for tougher U.S. immigration policies, and the Southern Poverty Law Center has designated it a hate group.If Trump moves ahead with his plan, Krikorian said via Twitter, “the order will be enjoined, case will eventually reach SCOTUS, which then will finally have to rule on the meaning of “subject to the jurisdiction.”Critics of birthright citizenship have said it encourages pregnant women who want to immigrate to travel to the U.S. to have their babies, hoping to gain citizenship for their children and potentially ease their own path to becoming U.S. citizens.While it’s difficult to track the exact number of children whose parents are in the U.S. illegally, the Pew Research Center has reported that in 2014, 3.2 million children — nearly 6 percent of all K-12 students in the U.S. — had at least one unauthorized immigrant parent and were citizens because they were born in the U.S.Krikorian said the executive order is “long overdue,” but Trump’s idea to revoke birthright citizenship is “ill-timed” and misguided, says Kristen Clarke, the executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.“Aside from being unconstitutional, such an executive order would exacerbate racial tensions, exploit fears and drive further polarization across the country at a moment that calls for the promotion of unity and inclusion,” Clarke said.Jess Morales Rocketto, whose Families Belong Together group has fought the Trump administration’s family separation policy along the U.S.-Mexico border, was more blunt.“This is ethnic cleansing,” Rocketto said. “This is an attempt to whiteout America’s history and heritage as a nation of immigrants. And it’s unconstitutional.”Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/.last_img read more

ICLR 2019, sponsored by Google marks the presence of 200 researchers contributing to and learning from the academic research community by presenting papers and posters. ICLR 2019 Day 1 highlights: Neural network, Algorithmic fairness, AI for social good and much more Algorithmic fairness The first day of the conference started with a talk on Highlights of Recent Developments in Algorithmic Fairness by Cynthia Dwork, an American computer scientist at Harvard University. She focused on “group fairness” notions that address the relative treatment of different demographic groups. And she talked on research in the ML community that explores fairness via representations. The investigation of scoring, classifying, ranking, and auditing fairness was also discussed in this talk by Dwork. Generating high fidelity images with Subscale Pixel Networks and Multidimensional Upscaling Jacob Menick, a senior research engineer at Google, Deep Mind and Nal Kalchbrenner, staff research scientist and co-creator of the Google Brain Amsterdam research lab talked on Generating high fidelity images with Subscale Pixel Networks and Multidimensional Upscaling. They talked about the challenges involved in generating the images and how they address this issue with the help of Subscale Pixel Network (SPN). It is a conditional decoder architecture that helps in generating an image as a sequence of image slices of equal size. They also explained how Multidimensional Upscaling is used to grow an image in both size and depth via intermediate stages corresponding to distinct SPNs. There were in all 10 workshops conducted on the same day based on AI and deep learning covering topics such as, The 2nd Learning from Limited Labeled Data (LLD) Workshop: Representation Learning for Weak Supervision and Beyond Deep Reinforcement Learning Meets Structured Prediction AI for Social Good Debugging Machine Learning Models The first day also witnessed a few interesting talks on neural networks covering topics such as The Lottery Ticket Hypothesis: Finding Sparse, Trainable Neural Networks, How Powerful are Graph Neural Networks? etc. Overall the first day was quite enriching and informative. ICLR 2019 Day 2 highlights: AI in climate change, Protein structure, adversarial machine learning, CNN models and much more AI’s role in climate change Tuesday, also the second day of the conference, started with an interesting talk on Can Machine Learning Help to Conduct a Planetary Healthcheck? by Emily Shuckburgh, a Climate scientist and deputy head of the Polar Oceans team at the British Antarctic Survey. She talked about the sophisticated numerical models of the Earth’s systems which have been developed so far based on physics, chemistry and biology. She then highlighted a set of “grand challenge” problems and discussed various ways in which Machine Learning is helping to advance our capacity to address these. Protein structure with a differentiable simulator On the second day of ICLR 2019, Chris Sander, computational biologist, John Ingraham, Adam J Riesselman, and Debora Marks from Harvard University, talked on Learning protein structure with a differentiable simulator. They about the protein folding problem and their aim to bridge the gap between the expressive capacity of energy functions and the practical capabilities of their simulators by using an unrolled Monte Carlo simulation as a model for data. They also composed a neural energy function with a novel and efficient simulator which is based on Langevin dynamics for building an end-to-end-differentiable model of atomic protein structure given amino acid sequence information. They also discussed certain techniques for stabilizing backpropagation and demonstrated the model’s capacity to make multimodal predictions. Adversarial Machine Learning Day 2 was long and had Ian Goodfellow, a machine learning researcher and inventor of GANs, to talk on Adversarial Machine Learning. He talked about supervised learning works and making machine learning private, getting machine learning to work for new tasks and also reducing the dependency on large amounts of labeled data. He then discussed how the adversarial techniques in machine learning are involved in the latest research frontiers. Day 2 covered poster presentation and a few talks on Enabling Factorized Piano Music Modeling and Generation with the MAESTRO Dataset,  Learning to Remember More with Less Memorization, Learning to Remember More with Less Memorization, etc. ICLR 2019 Day 3 highlights: GAN, Autonomous learning and much more Developmental autonomous learning: AI, Cognitive Sciences and Educational Technology Day 3 of ICLR 2019 started with Pierre-Yves Oudeyer’s, research director at Inria talk on Developmental Autonomous Learning: AI, Cognitive Sciences and Educational Technology. He presented a research program that focuses on computational modeling of child development and learning mechanisms. He then discussed the several developmental forces that guide exploration in large real-world spaces. He also talked about the models of curiosity-driven autonomous learning that enables machines to sample and explore their own goals and learning strategies. He then explained how these models and techniques can be successfully applied in the domain of educational technologies. Generating knockoffs for feature selection using Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN) Another interesting topic on the third day of ICLR 2019 was Generating knockoffs for feature selection using Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN) by James Jordon from Oxford University, Jinsung Yoon from California University, and Mihaela Schaar Professor at UCLA. The experts talked about the Generative Adversarial Networks framework that helps in generating knockoffs with no assumptions on the feature distribution. They also talked about the model they created which consists of 4 networks, a generator, a discriminator, a stability network and a power network. They further demonstrated the capability of their model to perform feature selection. Followed by few more interesting topics like Deterministic Variational Inference for Robust Bayesian Neural Networks, there were series of poster presentations. ICLR 2019 Day 4 highlights: Neural networks, RNN, neuro-symbolic concepts and much more Learning natural language interfaces with neural models Today’s focus was more on neural models and neuro symbolic concepts. The day started with a talk on Learning natural language interfaces with neural models by Mirella Lapata, a computer scientist. She gave an overview of recent progress on learning natural language interfaces which allow users to interact with various devices and services using everyday language. She also addressed the structured prediction problem of mapping natural language utterances onto machine-interpretable representations. She further outlined the various challenges it poses and described a general modeling framework based on neural networks which tackle these challenges. Ordered neurons: Integrating tree structures into Recurrent Neural Networks The next interesting talk was on Ordered neurons: Integrating tree structures into Recurrent Neural Networks by Professors Yikang Shen, Aaron Courville and Shawn Tan from Montreal University, and, Alessandro Sordoni, a researcher at Microsoft. In this talk, the experts focused on how they proposed a new RNN unit: ON-LSTM, which achieves good performance on four different tasks including language modeling, unsupervised parsing, targeted syntactic evaluation, and logical inference. The last day of ICLR 2019 was exciting and helped the researchers present their innovations and attendees got a chance to interact with the experts.

The army said 22 suspects died during a fierce firefight, but only one soldier was wounded.Questions about the killings, known as the “Tlatlaya case” after the rural township where they occurred, were first brought to light by an Associated Press story last July that reported on apparent contradictions in the army’s account.AP journalists who visited the scene three days later found little evidence of a long gunbattle. Bullet holes in the walls showed the same pattern: one or two closely placed bullet holes, surrounded by spattered blood, giving the appearance that some of those killed had been standing against a wall and shot at about chest level.The Mexican government’s Human Rights Commission later reported that its investigation determined that at least 12 and probably 15 people had been executed at the warehouse.last_img read more

still from Kapoor & Sons that releases on March 18; Oscar-winning make-up artist Greg Cannom working on Rishi Kapoor’s look for the film It took up to six hours every day to create the look Related News Directed by Shakun Batra Kapoor & Sons starring Alia Bhatt Fawad Khan and Sidharth Malhotra will hit the screen on March 18 The film also star Dadu aka Rishi Kapoor Actor Rishi Kapoor 63 feels the need to keep up with changing times In an interaction with the actor he talks about reel and realKapoor & Sons Your next film is titled Kapoor & Sons How much of the Kapoor khandan is reflected in the film Only the title It fans my ego I have done a film titled Chintuji and now Kapoor & Sons makes me feel it is named after me But I am glad I got a chance to work in this film where I play a 90-year-old grandfather It was one of the reasons I agreed to be a part of the film You look unrecognisable in it and the audience already loves that When Karan (Johar producer) and Shakun (Batra director) came to me I told them I wanted to be made up by Greg Cannom a three-time Oscar winning artist whose work I admire The film is made on a small budget but the makers agreed But it was easier said than done When we did the look test it took close to six hours to put the make-up on I knew it would take that many hours for the 30 days of shoot Everyone who knows me thought I won’t be able to do it because I am a very impatient man but I surprised everyone Was that to prove a point I had to prove the man behind that face not my patience The makers had put their faith in me and I had to justify the look and the money spent on me I will feel validated only if Rishi Kapoor the actor can justify the character Does Rishi Kapoor still need validation Every actor requires validation I am nervous as hell every time I am on set wondering if I shall be convincing enough in front of the camera Did the prosthetics burden you or aid your craft They gave me a new level of excitement and done up as an old man I started to feel the age The make-up was like my second skin and the lines looked real It wasn’t heavy and any twitch of facial muscles showed through the make-up The only impediment was the eyes — an old man’s would be dilated and greyed So we used lenses to cover up But it was the character that was the most fun to play You play the head of a dysfunctional family Mr Kapoor is most concerned about how he will look when dead But he is a dirty old man who watches porn and smokes weed with his grandsons and is obsessed with Mandakini of Ram Teri Ganga Maili But he has a simple desire — he wants a family portrait before he dies so he can put it up on the wall and write below ‘Kapoor & Sons since 1921’ Working on it was fun but I also fought a lot with my director for the first time in 44 years Was it the generation gap I am extremely malleable as an actor but I also know how to get away with doing things the way I want even if the director disagrees But Shakun who is a new school filmmaker wanted to shoot my scenes from every angle because the medium is digital now and editing softwares allow several options I agree with the craft but I am sorry I am old-school I cannot recreate the moment at every angle I am spontaneous and not a method actor I may be mediocre but I need my groundwork to be correct I have to fine-tune myself to suit current times but I’m not sure I will be able to That said Shakun’s done a fabulous job and added to the spectrum of roles in my second innings You call it a second innings too Now is when I am acting Isse pehle toh maine sirf jersey pehen ke gaane gaaye hain kabhi Switzerland mein kabhi Ooty mein (Before this I have worn a jersey and only sung songs in Switzerland or in Ooty) Contemporary writing has given me the opportunity to play characters as diverse as Rauf Lala of Agneepath and Duggal of Do Dooni Chaar It took a month of convincing before I took up Rauf Lala I was unwilling to believe I could look menacing but it happened The truth is I am jobless as we speak We need to allow screenwriters the space to experiment and I hope that when films such as Neerja or Piku are written makers think of casting me If that doesn’t happen I am happy supervising the construction of Ranbir’s house which begins in 10 days Do you feel sentimental about this bungalow Well yes I have spent 25 years here my kids grew up here But we have to bring down the bungalow in order to construct a new one that will accommodate Ranbir and us That said I do have a tendency to hold on to things Just two days ago Neetu and I had a squabble because I wanted something to be moved to the temporary apartment but she didn’t want that I have always lived in a bungalow and now I wonder if I will manage in an apartment but then I realise I have lived long enough in hotel rooms during shoots so an apartment shouldn’t be a problem How different is filmmaking now from the time when you started Earlier filmmakers worked with an edit pattern in their head because films were expensive Today stunts are less risky and technology has changed I also feel we shouldn’t completely veer away from song and dance It’s part of our culture — humaare tyohaaron mein janam mein maran mein sangeet hai (We have music in our festivals in birth and in death) What hasn’t changed is that acting is still what defines success The young crop needs to understand that however much one hits the gym six packs won’t make them a good actor It’s the muscles of your face not abs that really matter Today stylised acting is unacceptable In my youth I wanted to practise Balraj Sahni’s style of acting but it didn’t work The only actors today doing it and pulling it off are the Khans — they are the last of the titans Do you constantly feel the pressure to stay in step with the times Over time you realise it is the only way Last month I was invited to one of Delhi’s top colleges to speak on cinema I prepared myself with numbers statistics and also information about how the industry works But when the time came for me to speak the audience had only one question: why did Ranbir and Katrina break up Mere pairon tale zameen nikal gayi I thought to myself ‘These are the brightest minds of this time but gossip and glamour is all they are interested in’ I am used to this now I can negotiate an answer but I also realise that times have changed Back in my day I wouldn’t have been able to live in with Neetu if I wanted to If I don’t move with the times I will lose the connection I share with my son Is being active on Twitter part of the same effort to keep yourself up to date Anushka Sharma had introduced me to Twitter when we were shooting for Patiala House but last year Abhishek Bachchan got me active I found it interesting and fun — it allowed me to be candid It’s not a compulsion though Earlier when I would have time I would smoke Now that I have kicked the butt Twitter has replaced it But I have started to become wary and guarded I cannot be politically incorrect as I am an artist I am secular but I often get projected otherwise People say I have converted which is stupid but even if I have what is it to them Cinema has taught me to be secular I visit mosques and dargahs and also churches What do you mean when you say cinema has taught you to be secular I’ve acted in one of the most secular films
