Alaskas Minimum Wage Will Increase 5 Cents In January

first_imgThe current minimum wage is $9.84 through December 31, 2017. According to Beaty, all actual hours worked in a pay period multiplied by the Alaska minimum wage is the very least an employee can be compensated by an employer. Tips are not part of the equation. The minimum wage will rise from $9.84 to $9.89 effective January 1, 2019. By law, Alaska’s minimum wage must remain at least $1 per hour over the federal minimum wage. Heather Beaty with the State Department of Labor and Workforce Development: “This increase will affect anyone who is working for minimum wage, and this modest increase will help protect minimum wage workers and their families over inflation over time.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Alaska’s minimum wage will see a 5 cent increase as of January 1, 2019, for all workers, regardless of whether their pay is calculated by time, or commission.last_img read more

New theory suggests some black holes might predate the Big Bang

first_img(PhysOrg.com) — Cosmologists Alan Coley from Canada’s Dalhousie University and Bernard Carr from Queen Mary University in London, have published a paper on arXiv, where they suggest that some so-called primordial black holes might have been created in the Big Crunch that came before the Big Bang, which lends support to the theory that the Big Bang was not a single event, but one that occurs over and over again as the universe crunches down to a single point, then blows up again, over and over. This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. The idea is based on the fact that the Earth, and the rest of the known universe is occasionally bombarded with unexplained bursts of gamma rays; something that could, according to Coley and Carr, be the result of primordial black holes running out of energy and disintegrating.Primordial black holes are thought to be of a different type than the regular kind that are formed when a supernova occurs, leaving a void that is filled by the entity that is commonly known as a black hole. Many theorists support the notion that there does exist other types of black holes that were formed in the first “moments” after the Big Bang; black holes that would be smaller and created by the energy of the Big Bang itself. In this new theory, however, Coley and Carr suggest that some of these black holes, if they do actually exist, might have been created by the collapsing universe as part of the Big Crunch, and then somehow escaped being pulled into the pinpoint singularity comprised of everything else. And then, after the Big Bang, they simply assimilated with the newly formed universe. One problem they agree on is that it would likely be impossible to tell the difference between pre and post Big Bang primordial black holes.It’s all purely speculation of course, as no one has ever actually seen a primordial black hole, or even offered much proof that they exist, but it does raise very difficult questions; ones that are impossible for scientists much less casual observers to answer. Questions such as, if the universe contracts, then blows up, over and over, has this gone on forever? Or is it possible that our view of the universe is so limited that we’re only seeing one tiny fraction of it, and thus, any theories or explanations we offer, are little more than guesses. And finally, maybe the hardest one of all; is it possible that the universe actually goes on forever; that it has no boundaries or borders? Which would mean the Big Bang was actually little more than one tiny event going on in one small part of an endless expanse.It’s possible that no matter how long we as a people survive, we’ll never really know the answers to such questions, which might in the end mean, we’ll just have to take our theories on faith.

Coley, arXiv:1104.3796v1 [astro-ph.CO] arxiv.org/abs/1104.3796AbstractWe discuss whether black holes could persist in a universe which recollapses and then bounces into a new expansion phase. Whether the bounce is of classical or quantum gravitational origin, such cosmological models are of great current interest. In particular, we investigate the mass range in which black holes might survive a bounce and ways of differentiating observationally between black holes formed just after and just before the last bounce. We also discuss the consequences of the universe going through a sequence of dimensional changes as it passes through a bounce. © 2010 PhysOrg.com Scientists glimpse universe before the Big Bang Explore furtherlast_img read more

The course, to be held Dec. 6 – 10, 2009, in Dallas, Texas, incorporates lectures, panel discussions, teaching files, case scenarios and hands-on interaction with flow models. It is designed specifically for doctors with Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education training and experience in neuroimaging, catheter-directed cerebral angiography and subselective endovascular catheter-directed therapy. The course will be useful for well-trained specialists, including interventional radiologists, neuroradiologists, neurointerventionists, body interventionalists and—in particular—interventional radiology and neurointerventional fellows.“The Society of Interventional Radiology has assembled a large group of stroke experts to teach the medical management of stroke patients, cerebral imaging, interventional techniques of revascularization and the stroke team concept,” said Carl M. Black, M.D., an interventional radiologist/neuroradiologist at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center in Provo. Many topics will be covered including the pathophysiology of ischemic stroke, neurological examination/NIH stroke scale, extensive aspects of neuroimaging, screening for stroke, stroke risk factor management, patient selection (imaging criteria), drugs used in interventional therapy, the nuts and bolts of setting up a stroke center and the role and timing of rehabilitation, said Black.After completing the course, attendees should be able to describe the recent developments in acute stroke therapy and interventions, discuss essential elements of multidisciplinary stroke team development, analyze imaging modalities used in evaluation of acute ischemic stroke, describe intra-arterial techniques for treatment of acute ischemic stroke and demonstrate knowledge of guide catheters, microcatheters, pharmaceuticals and infusion systems. Participants will review teaching cases that will be posted on the SIR Web site, and attendees will have the opportunity to take written and practical exams on completion of this course to assess knowledge of basic principles that were covered.Besides Black, CLOTS program coordinators include Kieran J.

St Lukes University Health Network Chooses Ambra Health for Image Exchange

first_img News | Enterprise Imaging | July 29, 2019 Philips Announces 10-year Enterprise Informatics Agreement With Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire de Nancy Philips and Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire (CHRU) de Nancy, a leading academic hospital in the Grand Est… read more November 18, 2016 — Ambra Health and St. Luke’s University Health Network recently announced a new partnership that offers patients a streamlined method of image viewing and exchange.St. Luke’s University Health Network is a non-profit, fully integrated, nationally recognized network that provides services at seven hospitals and more than 200 sites throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey. With over 61,000 annual patient admissions, 1,341 physicians and 229,000 annual emergency room visits, medical image exchange throughout the wide network is an enormous part of successful data management and patient care at St. Luke’s.Chad Brisendine, chief information officer at St Luke’s University Health Network, said, “When looking for cloud image management vendors, it was very important to us that the organization had worked with enterprise systems before. Ambra was a best-of-breed cloud image management vendor and had the experience that we were looking for.”Historically, medical images had been provided to patients and referring physicians on CDs — a costly and time-consuming process as patients needed to schedule a pick-time for their images and travel in-person to the patient records office. In addition, with the rise of 3-D mammography, DVD copies, which can take well over an hour to create, added to patient wait time and higher costs for the facility. Today, with Ambra Health, CDs and DVDs are being phased out and medical image upload time through the cloud takes less than three minutes. Secure, electronic sharing of images provides a simple alternative to image distribution via CD and offers significant benefits to both care providers and patients. Once a patient shares medical images with St. Luke’s, they are given the ability to create an account to store medical images in a personal health record.Ambra’s image sharing and automated routing capabilities transform efficiency and the speed of image transfer in trauma situations, second opinion collaboration, and referrals as well as enabling patient uploads. In trauma and critical care situations, Ambra Health said it has greatly sped time-to-care delivery by sending imaging through the web and enabling life-saving data to be in a physician’s hands even before the patient arrives. For more information: www.ambrahealth.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Building the Right Team for Success in the Consolidated Enterprise – Part 2Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 9:52Loaded: 1.65%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -9:52 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Environment Ministry reports spike in illegal tours to Arenal Volcanos summit

first_imgEnvironment Ministry (MINAE) officials have reported an increase in the unauthorized entry of tourists to restricted areas ofArenal Volcano National Park, one of Costa Rica’s most popular destinations.Visitors are not allowed within an established perimeter that averages 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) from the crater. The measure aims to protect visitors from both volcanic activity and rough terrain.Park administrators said that unlicensed tour guides are increasingly promoting hiking tours to the volcano’s cone, which poses a severe risk for tourists.At riskMINAE officials explained in a news release that because the area around the volcanic cone is not an authorized tourist site, it does not have any infrastructure for visitors. The restricted area lacks tourist trails or proper demarcation, and it includes very steep slopes.“The accumulation of material from the volcano makes the slopes unstable and prone to landslides,” the MINAE report states.Eliécer Duarte, a volcanologist with the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI), told The Tico Times that for the most part, Arenal has been quiet for the past seven years. However, the areas close to the crater still maintain high temperatures and gas spewings.“Temperatures at fumaroles near the crater can reach some 200 degrees Celsius (392 ° F),” he said.Duarte said the biggest risk for those trying to reach the summit are rocks that fall from the sides of the volcano.“We’ve seen falling rocks the size of a house. Some of them measure 13 by 35 meters (42 x 115 feet),” he said.Both the ascent and descent from the cone demand great physical preparation, as each trip represents a four-hour walk on very inhospitable terrain, Duarte said. The terrain’s topography, the dense vegetation and even weather conditions are a significant challenge for many.Ongoing problemMINAE prohibited entrance to the restricted area in 1998. Today, access is allowed only for scientists, as well as staff from MINAE and the ministry’s National System of Conservation Areas.However, Duarte said OVSICORI staff frequently see groups of people walking inside the restricted area and hiking on the volcano’s slopes.“At nights, they look like fireflies. You can see them moving in lines from nearby areas, and even from the roads,” Duarte said.He said unlicensed tour guides are organizing many of these trips.“They are usually near bus stations and other tourist sites. They approach tourists and offer to take them to the crater and other restricted areas,” he said.Many of them also promote their trips on websites and Facebook profiles and then agree on a meeting point.“These so-call guides and their businesses are also hurting the park’s finances, as these people do not pay entrance tickets,” Duarte said.Wilson Barrantes, Regional Director of the Arenal Huetar Conservation Area, told The Tico Times that area officials have witnessed a spike in the illegal entrance of visitors to Arenal.“They are entering areas strictly devoted to conservation, not to visitation, but some people just care about profiting from the park’s resources,” he said.Prison timeBarrantes said the conservation area is increasing surveillance, and noted that National Police or Tourism Police officers will immediately evict anyone found inside a restricted area.They also will file a disobedience of authority complaint against those responsible for illegally taking people into a banned area.According to Costa Rica’s Criminal Code, those found guilty of such a charge could face prison sentences ranging from six months to three years.Barrantes said taking people to the restricted areas is highly irresponsible and “represents a huge risk, as it would take a lot of time and effort for a rescue team to reach and transport someone who is hurt.”He called on visitors to the area to enter the park only at authorized entrances.There are two official trails that explore Arenal National Park: Coladas and Ceibas. The park administration plans to open a third trail, La Península, next weekend, Barrantes said on Tuesday.“The new trail has big common areas, new viewpoints and essential services, all following accessibility standards,” Barrantes said.Recommended: La Fortuna, Arenal Volcano, and the Northern Plains Facebook Comments Related posts:Unlicensed guides are risking tourists’ lives by taking them too close to Costa Rica’s active volcanoes Gas, vapor at Poás Volcano prompts preventive measures UPDATE: Poás Volcano eruption prompts temporary closure of national park National Police announce operation to combat crime wave in Costa Rica’s Northern Zonelast_img read more

Australian consumers and travel agents invited

first_imgAdventure Canada – Greenland – photo credit Michelle ValbergAustralian consumers and travel agents invitedGrowing demand in Australia for expedition travel to the Arctic has paved the way for the most extensive trade visit yet here this March by eco cruise company, Adventure Canada, which this year enters its fourth decade of offering its award-winning expedition cruises to some of the world’s wildest and most remote destinations.Adventure Canada Expedition Leader and Business Development Director, Matthew James (MJ) Swan – the son of the company’s founder, Matthew Swan – will meet hundreds of travel and cruise agents in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia from March 5-16, 2018, as part of the Ontario-based company’s biggest ever promotional tour to Australia to meet growing demand for authentic wilderness experiences in the Canadian Arctic and beyond.Consumers, travel agents – and their clients – in Sydney, Brisbane and Gold Coast are invited to attend one of five information sessions with MJ Swan.First visiting the Arctic at the age of two, MJ now has more than 50 Arctic journeys under his belt and will share his incredible experiences and Adventure Canada’s biggest-ever program in 2019 with agents and their clients on March 13.Since its birth as a family-owned, expedition cruise line in 1987, Adventure Canada has operated increasingly popular cruises, including complimentary zodiac excursions, to the Canadian Arctic, Greenland, Newfoundland and the famed Northwest Passage. In the 2018 program, Iceland and Scotland was added to the company’s wilderness destinations as part of its summer program aboard the 198-passenger, ice-class ship, Ocean Endeavour, from June to October. And 2019 will see the remote corners of Ireland added to the program for the first time.Agents invited to RSVP to information sessionsTo register for one of the information events in Sydney on March 13, Brisbane on March 5 and Gold Coast on March 6, which will be hosted by Adventure Canada’s Australian representatives, Cruise Traveller, and include light refreshments and exclusive offers for consumers on the day, visit www.cruisetraveller.com.au/AdventureCanadaSeminars to register or email seminars@cruisetraveller.com.au with any questions.“Our life-changing expedition cruises to the Arctic are all about engagement, education, enlightenment and entertainment – all delivered with snowballs of humour – so our March information sessions will be the same, with agents and adventure-seeking travellers able to see how our unique voyages to wild, untouched places open people’s eyes, hearts and minds,” said Mr Swan.“Our business from Australia has been growing every year since Cruise Traveller partnered with us five years ago and the two main reasons why Aussies want to explore the Arctic is to see polar bears in the wild and to meet the indigenous Inuit people who make the Arctic their home,” he said. “The close relationships we have forged with the Inuit people of the Arctic sets us apart and we look forward to showing Australians how we can immerse them in one of the planet’s most inspiring and pristine environments and how we work to keep these places so magical.”Mr Swan said he had committed himself to progressing his father’s trailblazing work in sustainable tourism in the Arctic – work that saw his dad honoured with a Canadian Tourism Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016.“We visit very special places on our expeditions and we find we attract very special people who want to expand their horizons and their understanding of the world and those are the types of people we hope will join us at our information sessions in March,” he said.Craig Bowen, the Managing Director of Cruise Traveller, which represents Adventure Canada in Australia, said: “The power of hearing first hand from those who actually lead expeditions can’t be overestimated. It adds a level of excitement and understanding that a brochure or website just can’t replicate.  We have seen it time and time again over the years – these information sessions deliver sales. This is why we are thrilled to facilitate MJ’s Australian visit!”To register for the free agent and client information sessions on March 13 (Sydney); March 5 (Brisbane); and March 6 (Gold Coast), visit www.cruisetraveller.com.au/AdventureCanadaSeminarsThe five info seminars:Sydney (CBD)  Tuesday, March 13 – 2pm to 4pm;   AND  6pm to 8pmBrisbane (CBD)  Monday March 5 – 10am to 12noon;  AND  6pm to 8pmGold Coast (Main Beach) Tuesday March  6 – 10am to 12noon onlySource = Adventure Canadalast_img read more

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact There are six teams on bye this week and there’s a very good chance that you have multiple starters you’re about to bench. If you’ve been running with Andrew Luck or Philip Rivers and figured you’d dump your backup, it’s time to grab that one-hit wonder. It’s a tough week for running backs too. I had to start Mike James in one of my leagues, and although it didn’t completely crush my running game, it still hurts to start someone this late in the season when the last time you heard their name was on a Saturday. If this is the week you stacked your byes or if you need to fill a gaping hole in your lineup, check out these players and pick up a win in Week 8.Your six Week 8 bye teams: BAL, CHI, HOU, IND, SD, TENQB – 19% Geno Smith, NYJ @ CIN – This guy seems to find a way to get a TD or two every week despite a revolving door of offensive skill players around him. Rex Ryan decided just a few plays into the game that Chris Ivory was going to replace Bilal Powell at running back and Ivory won the carries battle 34-3. The only consistent feature of this offensive attack all year has been Smith.WR – 8% Andre Roberts, ARI vs. ATL – With Larry Fitgerald obviously ailing and the running game becoming more stagnant as Rashard Mendenhall continues to get carries, Carson Palmer will have to go to the air even more and Roberts can be the benefactor. I’m really hoping that Andre Ellington will become this team’s every down back but that seems a little farfetched seeing as Arians won’t let his love for Mendenhall go.RB – 52% Joseph Randle, DAL @ DET – Good matchup here for last week’s breakout running back. If DeMarco Murray doesn’t play then Randle will be in line for the start and another great day on the field. It seems like everyone desperately needs another back right now and this is a great option for plug and play on such a big off-week for the position. Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling 0 Comments   Share   TE – 58% Jordan Reed, WAS @ DEN – This guy is a MUST OWN. The Redskins will be passing all day and will be able to expand the offense a bit more with RG3’s knee becoming less and less of an issue. The best sign for Reed owners is that Fred Davis was a healthy scratch last week. Even you have a good TE, get this guy on your team for Flex purposes.DEF – 35% Pittsburgh Steelers @ OAK – The old timey Steelers D should come out in this game. The run-stuffing, hard-hitting, flying-Polomaluing Steel Curtain will be in full effect, especially since the Raiders continue to have issues running the ball. Darren McFadden will return for Oakland but he won’t be 100% and has a rough match up ahead of him. Ignore Pitt’s record in this one, the D will be ready to shut down the Raiders.last_img read more

first semi-final on Tuesday File photo of Sandeep Tomar (L) Getty Images Punjab meanwhile will face Mumbai Maharathis in the second semi-final The opening bout set the tone of the evening as Sandeep posted a 3-1 upset victory over Vladimir in men’s 57kg category What was supposed to be one-sided contest turned out to the bout of the tournament with Sandeep springing up a massive surprise with his agile movement on the mat and his superb defence Vladimir managed to win a solitary point in round one to lead 1-0 at the break but Rio Olympian Sandeep made a strong comeback in the second half of the bout showcasing some brilliant defensive skills He was so quick on the mat that Vladimir struggled to get hold of the Indian wrestler In round two Sandeep earned one point against Vladimir due to passivity before stunning his stronger opponent by taking him down in the last 30 seconds of tie to give Haryana an early lead In the second contest Abdusalam Gadisov of Haryana proved too strong for India’s Krishan Kumar as expected The 2015 World Championship silver medallist from Russia got the better of Punjab’s Krishan 5-0 rather comfortably in men’s 97kg to extend Haryana’s lead Indu

category On 24 April while visiting Afghanistan Defence Secretary James Mattis said "(The year) 2017’s going to be another tough year for the valiant Afghan Security Forces and the international troops who have stood and will continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with Afghanistan against terrorism and against those who seek to undermine the legitimate United Nations-recognised government of this nation" Mattis’ visit comes after a major attack on an Afghan Army base in Mazar-i-Sharif over the weekend that killed around 130 Afghan soldiers and others and forcing the resignations of the country’s top security brass — the army chief and the defence minister Pertinently Mattis’ confession also comes after the US dropped its largest non-nuclear bomb also termed fancily as the ‘Mother of all the Bombs’ in Nangarhar province purportedly on an Islamic State in Khorasan target The attack had reportedly killed 90 militants Perhaps after the dropping the MOAB US generals expected that the militants would be on the run trying to salvage their remaining strength Unfortunately a solitary MOAB cannot undo the years of faulty US strategy in the country The reliance on purely tactical military solutions rather than a long-term strategic view to address the root causes of insurgency — read eliminating safe havens in Pakistan and the country’s support to terrorist groups of all hues — has allowed the insurgents in Afghanistan to grow from strength to strength File image of Defence Secretary James Mattis AP But clearly such is the US military’s hubris that for administration after administration the first response from the Pentagon to neutralise a terrorist group or sort out a rogue regime is always to fire a cruise missile or rain bombs on a country The same was evident few weeks ago when the only thing that the Donald Trump administration could think of when trying to deal with the chemical gas attack on civilians — whether by the Bashar al-Assad regime or rebels is still a matter of debate — was to fire a volley of cruise missiles at a Syrian airbase from where the gas is suspected to have originated But three weeks later just like Afghanistan it has not changed the ground reality in the country where larger geopolitical ambitions are playing out This makes resolving the Syrian imbroglio difficult; again just like Afghanistan And as the US sends its armada to waters adjacent to the Korean Peninsula it appears that one more instance of ‘missile strike to sort out a rogue regime’ is imminent It’s time for Washington to realise that the world as a battlefield has undergone change with hybrid warfare dominating tactics and strategy Therefore simplistic solutions such as a missile strike or dropping a bomb will only work to complicate the issue Those make for a good prime time TV news debates but just as prime time TV debates do little to address the issue these military tactics too do little to solve the actualproblem Madrid:Kevin Gameiro ended
