US consumer spending up inflationadjusted 03 per cent

first_imgWASHINGTON – U.S. consumer spending rose in September by a solid, inflation-adjusted 0.3 per cent, led by increased spending on health care services and motor vehicles.The Commerce Department also said Monday that the Federal Reserve’s preferred measure of inflation returned to the central bank’s 2 annual per cent target after having been slightly elevated in prior months. In addition, personal incomes rose 0.2 per cent in September — the smallest gain since June 2017. Roughly half of that increase was wiped out by inflation.Consumer spending accounts for the majority of U.S. economic activity, and it was the key driver of overall growth during the July-September quarter. The economy climbed at an annual rate of 3.5 per cent in that quarter, helped by the strongest jump in consumer spending in about four years, the Commerce Department said Friday.But economic growth slowed from a 4.2 per cent gain in the second quarter as the pace of business investment fell and continued growth may depend even more on consumer spending.Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, expects that consumer spending will begin to slow after having gotten a jolt this year from the tax cuts signed into law by President Donald Trump.“Spending recently has been boosted by the tax cuts but the incremental boost to spending power is now over,” Shepherdson said.Consumers did pull back on their spending for food services last month, but they were helped by a 3.5 per cent increase in spending on autos.The Fed’s preferred inflation metric — personal consumption expenditures — found that prices ticked up just 0.1 per cent in September.The personal savings rate slipped to a still-healthy 6.2 per cent in September, but that was the lowest level in 2018.last_img read more

UN agency assists Congolese refugees to return home from Gabon

29 July 2011The United Nations refugee agency is helping hundreds of Congolese to repatriate from Gabon to their former homes over the next week as a deadline looms for them to either apply to remain in Gabon or lose their refugee status. The United Nations refugee agency is helping hundreds of Congolese to repatriate from Gabon to their former homes over the next week as a deadline looms for them to either apply to remain in Gabon or lose their refugee status.About 450 people have signed up in recent days to be repatriated to the Republic of Congo, according to Fatoumata Lejeune-Kaba, a spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).She said a return convoy was leaving Gabon today, and at least three more convoys are slated to depart within the next week. UNHCR has placed staff in two locations in the Republic of Congo to monitor the process and help the returnees reintegrate into their villages of origin.The convoys are taking place as the refugee status of about 9,500 Congolese living in Gabon – part of a larger group of people who fled conflict in the Republic of Congo between 1997 and 2003 – ends on Sunday after the Gabonese Government decided in January that it is now safe for those people to return home.More than 1,000 Congolese have since applied for residence permits to stay in Gabon as regular migrants, and already 217 permits have been granted in the Gabonese capital, Libreville, with others being granted at different locations across the country.Ms. Lejeune-Kaba said UNHCR has been helping the refugees by paying the administrative fee of 150,000 Central African francs (or about $300) needed for a residence permit.She said the agency was pleased that Gabonese authorities had taken steps to ensure that immigration officials understand the new procedures and that there would be no arrests made once the refugee status ends on Sunday.Those steps would allow the Congolese, after Sunday, to continue to apply for residence permits, to seek exemption from the need for such permits, or to repatriate. read more

Kosovo UN probe finds no mass grave in Orahovac

An UNMIK team, which included three forensic experts from the Office on Missing Persons and Forensics, conducted a “thorough investigation” into Serbian media reports that a cemetery in Orahovac/Rahovac may contain a mass grave of Kosovo Serbs killed after June 1999.A Serbian pathologist, Dr. Slavisa Dobricanin, visited the site on Tuesday and confirmed the previous finding of the UNMIK Missing Persons Unit that it contained no fresh graves. The Unit had previously dug 17 test sites in the area.The police had conducted the excavations following the guidance of a Serb family who believed suspicious activity had taken place at the cemetery in the past three years, the Mission said. read more

Action needed to find test treat millions unknowingly infected with viral hepatitis

Both worldwide and in the South-East Asia Region, less than one-in-10 infected people are estimated to know their status, while less than 10 per cent of those who do know are actually receiving treatment, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).“This lack of awareness and treatment leads to progressive liver damage and can cause life-threatening conditions, such as fibrosis and liver cancer, resulting in an estimated 410,000 deaths in the Region every year,” said Poonam Khetrapal Singh, WHO Regional Director for South-East Asia.“It also allows viral hepatitis to spread: Region-wide, an estimated 40 million people live with chronic hepatitis B while an estimated 10 million live with chronic hepatitis C,” she added.Pointing out that “urgent action is needed to find, test and treat the missing millions,” she highlighted the agency’s Regional Action Plan, which aims to expand the number of people aware of their status to 50 per cent, with at least 75 per cent of those diagnosed with the disease, receiving treatment by 2020.Greater awareness among the public and high-risk groups is key to eliminating the viral hepatitis health threat by 2030.She urged health authorities region-wide to send clear messages on the disease’s signs and symptoms, where they can get tested and seek treatment, and how infection can be prevented – such as through hepatitis B vaccinations, practicing safe sex and safe needle usage.The Regional Director underscored the importance of health workers having better access to quality diagnostics and affordable, quality-assured testing kits.For people diagnosed with hepatitis B or C, she said “access to effective and affordable treatment is vital.”Every second person who injects drugs is living with hepatitis C – Yury Fedotov, UNODC Executive Director“While treatments have existed for hepatitis B for some time, Directly-acting antiviral drugs can now cure hepatitis C in up to 95 per cent of cases,” she said, noting that dramatic reduction in cost.World Hepatitis DayWorld Hepatitis Day marked on Saturday, is focussing on raising awareness of the global burden of viral hepatitis as a major health problem in need of an urgent international response.Marking World Hepatitis Day, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) called on people globally to take action to find the “missing millions,” including intravenous drug users and people in prison.  “Every second person who injects drugs is living with hepatitis C,” said Yury Fedotov, UNODC Executive Director, indicating that women in this category have a 38 per cent higher risk of contracting hepatitis C than men.  “The prevalence of hepatitis B infection among people who inject drugs is 7.5 per cent,” he added.Due to contaminated equipment and unsafe injection of drugs, along with other risk factors such as unsafe tattooing and skin piercing, a 2016 global review indicated that, of the estimated 10.4 million people incarcerated worldwide, 15.1 per cent have hepatitis C and 4.8 per cent have chronic hepatitis B. read more

Ericsson and Ambra deploy LTE 3km down at LaRonde

first_imgEricsson and Ambra Solutions have worked together to deliver Canada’s deepest underground LTE network for the Agnico Eagle mining site, LaRonde in Abitibi, Quebec.Located 3 km below the surface, the LTE network will provide data and voice mobility services across the site and enable several Internet of Things (IoT) use cases to improve safety and mining operations.LTE cellular networks can provide data and voice mobility services over low frequency bands that allow a better propagation than any other available technology, delivering faster, more advanced wireless technology. The network in LaRonde is utilising band 5 at 850 MHz. Ambra is the only Canadian operator deploying private LTE networks in underground mines.The solution is based on the latest Ericsson Radio System portfolio of basebands and radio units, software upgradable to provide Massive IoT capabilities for sensor-based applications and support 5G New Radio (NR) capability.Eric L’Heureux, CEO, Ambra Solutions, says: “The LTE technology is the most cost effective and reliable solution to provide real-time coverage to several kilometres of underground tunnels. A single LTE radio can cover up to 6km of tunnel, whereas it would take over 60 active Wi-Fi access points to cover the same area.”LTE networks open a new suite of capabilities and possibilities to cost effectively enable smart mining-related tasks for open pits or underground mines. Unlike other options, LTE networks allow the use of IoT sensors and devices to monitor, operate, and collect data throughout the mining site, for example related to air quality monitoring. This includes remote control operation of mining machinery, dispatch systems, emergency notification systems, access control systems, automated collection of data, ventilation fan monitoring and gas detection systems.Graham Osborne, Head of Ericsson Canada, says: “Our work with Ambra brings Ericsson technology to a specialized environment in a unique application. Deploying this underground LTE network will provide us with new learning opportunities in a novel application and how they can lead to future technologies and ideas.”Agnico Eagle is a senior Canadian gold mining company with eight mines in Canada, Finland, and Mexico. LaRonde is Agnico Eagle’s flagship mine, located in the Abitibi region of northwestern Quebec. LaRonde has produced more than 5 million ounces of gold since it opened in 1988.Completed in December 2017, the LTE network provides connection across the site. It is similar to the mining site of Boliden in Skellefteå Municipality, Västerbotten County, Sweden, which was also built using Ericsson equipment.last_img read more

Google PopUp Museum Teases New Logo Possible Gaming Hardware

first_imgA pop-up Google exhibit that appeared outside the Game Developers Conference Monday morning is teasing what is likely some sort of gaming hardware that’s “coming soon” along with its new logo.A Google employee confirmed to Variety that the logo — seen in the image above —  is for the new tech set to be announced during the keynote.Google’s unveiling of its take on the future of gaming will kick-off the second day of the annual Game Developers Conference and will include hands-on time with some of the tech unveiled at the event, Variety has also learned.While there’s no word on what that hardware will be, the news does serve as greater confirmation of what many suspect: That Google is preparing to enter the market of PC gaming and video game consoles through its own bit of hardware, most likely paired with streaming technology. In the weeks leading up to tomorrow’s big event, Google has been teasing the “future of gaming” with tweets and short videos. It also has been quietly building up its staff. Most notably, last week former EA and Ubisoft studio lead and game developer Jade Raymond announced she is now a vice president at the company, though didn’t specify specifically what her role would be there. It’s likely we’ll learn more about that Tuesday as well.The company has already been testing its own cloud gaming service  — called Project Stream — which allowed users to play “Assassin’s Creed Odyssey” without needing to install it on their PC. The company as has a patent for a game controller that includes voice support for Google Assistant. Last week, Variety discovered snippets of code already running in Google’s Chromecast that references a gaming service.Chromecast being used as one way to deliver game streaming to televisions is one of the many rumors currently circulating around Google’s Tuesday event.Google’s event will take place in one of the three buildings taken over by the Game Developers Conference, and there’s another outdoor exhibit set up between the buildings by Google. The exhibit is a sort of small video game museum featuring a timeline of major moments in video games including displays of Pong, GameBoy, the PlayStation, Dreamcast, an Atari 2600 and a display case empty except for a card that reads “Coming Soon.” One backdrop reads “Together we’ll build a playground for our imagination.” The other reads “Anything you dream can be built.” In between the two is a massive arch with the Google icon at the top and a sort of flattened out “S” suspended inside. A Google employee confirmed that was the new logo for what was set to be announced this week, but declined to say if it was an “S.” Popular on Variety One that that is clear, though, that this marks a major push by Google at an event that has the attention of game developers from around the world, and that this could be one of the show’s biggest bits of news this year. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Big Data Big Deal 5 Ways Its Going to Be Revolutionized In

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. November 9, 2017 Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Register Now » Big data is a big deal. From reducing their costs and making better decisions, to creating products and services that are in demand by customers, businesses will increasingly benefit by using big-data analytics.Related: How Big Data Analytics Provide Personalized Customer ExperienceThere’s a reason for the prediction that the big-data market will be worth $46.34 billion by 2018: It’s constantly evolving, changing the ways that we find, understand, and use data and data analytics.Next year will be no exception. Because of incoming innovations in technology and data science, exciting, revolutionary changes in big data can be expected in 2018. Here are my top predictions:1. Cognitive technologies are on the rise.One of the most exciting changes for big data will be the evolution of cognitive technologies. Tasks that were once possible only for humans — from identifying faces to recognizing handwriting — are being automated. Additionally, automation is being applied to cognitive skills such as planning, reasoning with limited or uncertain information and learning.Related: From Being Employees at Facebook to Understanding Big Data AnalyticsPreviously, computing systems could only capture, move and store unstructured data — without understanding it. Now, the ongoing changes in cognitive technologies mean that systems can, in fact, comprehend what the data means.2. There’ll be more growth in prescriptive analytics.Analytics systems are going to work better, too. For analytics to work at all, these systems have to help us make more informed decisions and make our actions more effective. With prescriptive analytics, this will be easier.Prescriptive analytics involves finding the best course of action for a given situation, and because the field is getting better, in 2018, it will make a big difference for big data. Cognitive computing is extending analytics levels to new kinds of data, using new technologies.Prescriptive analytics helps deliver what’s right in a given situation — i.e., the right answer at the right time, in the right context. By combining both predictive and descriptive analytics, entrepreneurs will be able to make smarter decisions with the data they have. When analytics are used correctly — with a combination of mathematics, analytics and experimentation — businesses can optimize production and improve customers’ experiences.Using analytics and being able to analyze data at the same time provides a faster, fuller picture of a business’s data. So, when you’re trying to find out how to drive more traffic to your online store, for example, prescriptive analytics will make this much easier.3. Machines will be learning faster than ever.The more we develop our machines, the faster their ability to learn will become. Machine-learning (ML) technology is growing rapidly these days, meaning that soon these machines will be able to analyze bigger, more complex data and deliver faster and more accurate results. This growth has been caused by the enormous increase in data, improved algorithms and more powerful computer hardware. As a result, people, processes and products will all be streamlined in a way we can’t yet imagine.According to Ronald Van Loon, the Dutch data expert, right now, “Machine learning algorithms learn from huge amounts of structured and unstructured data, e.g. text, images, video, voice, body language and facial expressions.” By next year, machine learning is expected to become faster and smarter than it already is, and be able to make better predictions for the future. It’s been said, for example, that even recruitment will be automated for many companies by 2018.So, the more that machine-learning algorithms develop, the more they’ll be able to teach us about unstructured data. This means that there’ll be even more challenges and problems your company will be able to overcome, thanks to developments in ML.4. Cyber security will improve, thanks to AI.With improvements in artificial intelligence, specifically the application of reinforcement learning to problems, machines will soon be able to model human psychology and make better predictions. They’ll also get better at learning from unlabeled data without any need for human supervision. With this increased capacity, AI will become a defense mechanism for safeguarding data.According to the Harvard Business Review, AI will be used to protect cyber infrastructures from attacks and hacks — which will be of great use to anyone running a business.5. IoT will have a big impact on big data.IoT — the internet of things — will become a large part of big data analysis in 2018. As more consumers use smartphones, tablets and other gadgets, more businesses will invest in IoT to collect the data they need.Already, consumers and businesses alike have benefited from sensor-based analytics: An example: Sensors can track what parts of stores get the most foot traffic and will accordingly become more common in 2018, especially for retail.Overall, the changes big data promises for 2018 are exciting; whether your business is in retail, ecommerce, or online education, in something like statistics, you can benefit from these changes.Related: How Small Businesses Can Embrace Big DataHow has big data affected your business?

Amazons New Robots Pack 700 Boxes Per Hour

first_img 2 min read This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Robots in Amazon’s warehouses are taking on a new role of boxing up orders, and they do so much more efficiently and quickly than the human workers they replace.As Reuters reports, Amazon has been experimenting with a new type of automated packaging robot that can 3D scan the goods included in an order as they travel down a conveyor belt. Those goods are then placed in a custom-size box the robot creates that’s perfectly sized to fit.Each robot packer can handle up to 700 orders per hour, and unlike their human counterparts, do not require regular breaks, never go home, and can’t get sick. Worryingly for workers, one robot at a warehouse means 24 human roles are no longer required. If the same robot was rolled out to each of Amazon’s U.S. facilities, that would be 1,300 roles removed.Each robot packer costs $1 million plus running expenses, which sounds like a lot until you consider Amazon will recoup the money spent in just two years. Those savings come from employing fewer people, but also the efficiency and low maintenance costs such a machine enjoys.The loss of roles in packing at Amazon does not necessarily mean a loss of jobs. An Amazon spokesperson commenting on the machines, said, “We are piloting this new technology with the goal of increasing safety, speeding up delivery times and adding efficiency across our network … We expect the efficiency savings will be re-invested in new services for customers, where new jobs will continue to be created.”Earlier this month, Amazon’s director of robotics fulfillment made it clear that full warehouse automation is nowhere near ready to happen. We’ll apparently be enjoying warehouse roles for at least the next decade. Even after that it sounds as though the roles are simply changing rather than disappearing completely. What will the Amazon worker of 2029 be doing exactly, then? Enroll Now for Free This story originally appeared on PCMag May 13, 2019last_img read more

The Medtronic Evera MRI ICD is not approved in the United States.It is estimated that as many as 63 percent of ICD patients will need an MRI within 10 years of receiving a device. Until the availability of MR-conditional ICD systems, patients with devices have been contraindicated from receiving MRI scans because of potential interactions between the MRI and device function.“This means that in addition to having the highest standard in modern ICD treatment, patients implanted with an Evera MRI defibrillator will now have improved access to one of the most important diagnostic tools, the MRI,” said Marshall Stanton, M.D., vice president and general manager of the tachycardia business at Medtronic. “An ICD that allows for full-body access to MRI will help patients get the diagnostic answers they need.”Like its non-MR-conditional predecessor, the Evera MRI features a contoured shape with thin, smooth edges that better fits inside the body, increasing patient comfort by reducing skin pressure by 30 percent. The Evera MRI maintains the same battery longevity (up to 11 years) compared to previous devices. In addition, Evera MRI is paired with the Sprint Quattro Secure family of ICD leads, which has 10 years of proven performance with active monitoring and is safe for use in an MRI environment.Evera MRI includes SmartShock 2.0, a shock reduction algorithm that enables the device to better differentiate between dangerous and harmless heart rhythms. While the majority of shocks delivered are necessary to treat potentially fatal arrhythmias, studies estimate that approximately 20 percent of patients with implantable defibrillators may experience inappropriate shocks in response to a benign arrhythmia or electrical noise sensed by the device. SmartShock technology helps to eliminate these inappropriate shocks, and delivers a 98 percent inappropriate shock-free rate at one year. Also included is OptiVol 2.0 fluid status monitoring and complete diagnostics, which helps to identify patients at risk of worsening heart failure and atrial fibrillation.“Compared to other ICDs available, the Evera MRI system gives patients the most unrestricted access to MRI scans, and ultimately allows them to get the diagnostic answers they need,” said Stanton. “Patients suffering from debilitating heart rhythm disorders who need an ICD also are likely to need an MRI over the lifetime of their device and this technology allows them to do so.”For more information: www.medtronic.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Interventional Radiology | August 16, 2019 Profound Medical Receives U.S. FDA 510(k) Clearance for Tulsa-Pro Profound Medical Corp. announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to… read more Two brain metastases from primary lung cancer are contrast enhanced in the brain of a 61-year-old male.

Dubai Business Events is a part of Dubai Tourism primarily focusing on the Business segment.Speaking exclusively to Travel News Digest, Karina Lance, Senior Manager – Sales and Convention Services, Dubai Business Events said, “80% of the Indian market is incentive travellers and so we have incentive programmes and added values to it like access to attractions, accommodation, visa facilities, etc. For MICE, we usually target a group of 500 people. If there are larger groups coming in then we have a customised approach to that particular event.”Talking about destination weddings, Lance averred, “Wedding is a new niche market, which is increasing on a large scale in Dubai. We organised a fam trip for Indian wedding planners in the month of March where we showcased venues apt for Indian weddings. The itinerary for the fam trip was such that we tailored it as per the Indian wedding customs and rituals like the Henna night, sangeet night, etc. We showed the wedding planners convenient venues that can accommodate large groups. We have a variety of venues out of which the World Trade Centre is the biggest.”India is the number one source market for Dubai. Out of the total two million Indian visitors to Dubai last year, 30-40% were business travellers, as per the number of nights spent, stated Lance.Dubai Business Events receives about 225 events per year and approximately 70 out of those are from India.
