UP Move to include names of Azam Khan excop aide in land

first_img Advertising Fresh FIR filed against Azam Khan for remarks against Jaya Prada On Thursday, Rampur police registered an FIR against Azam Khan and Aaly Hasan after inquiry conducted on complaints of local residents that their land were grabbed. and it was later included in the premises of Jauhar University.Azam Khan’s son Mohammad Abdullah Azam Khan, MLA from Swar, claimed that land of 26 complainants were purchased in 2006 and payments were made through cheques. “This will be clear if the land deeds are checked. All the allegations are false.”He said police were harassing his father and Aaly Hasan Khan after filing a “false case” against them. “Police have also falsely implicated Waseem and made wrong allegations against him and his mother.” The move comes after complaints against them by several local residents of Rampur to the district administration alleging that Azam, with the help of Aaly Hasan, who was then posted in Rampur, grabbed their land that was used in the “extension” of Mohammad Ali Jauhar University. Azam Khan is chancellor of the university, while Aaly Hasan is its chief security officer.On Friday, the Rampur police arrested Aaly Hasan’s 24-year-old son Waseem, a businessman, for allegedly misbehaving and threatening a police team that had gone to their residence while searching for Aaly Hasan.Waseem, along with his mother Sabina, was booked on several charges, said Azeemnagar police station SHO Rajeev Kumar.

6 Things We Wont Be Able to Live Without in 2035

first_imgThis is likely only the tip of the iceberg, because we quickly will be surrounded by increasingly intelligent products — some that have our best interests at heart and some that want to scam us.The issues with deep fakes, fishing by increasingly intelligent systems, the proliferation of smart robots, and redundant services will continue unabated. In a few short years we are going to need to deal with these changes in more than the existing ad hoc fashion, and actually get ahead of problems like what to do with dormant autonomous vehicles, and where to allow drones to drop the packages they deliver safely and securely?We have tons of disruptive products and services, but few are doing gap analysis to figure out what new things will be critical to this new world. I’ve listed six, but I’ll bet you can think of more. The next Bill Gates or Elon Musk likely is working on one or more of these things already. What are you working on? 1. Drone Drop Spots 3. Autonomous Plane Sky Harbor There are some things I’d like to see improved. It now comes in brown and burgundy (the 70s would like their colors back) and I’d prefer black. I’d prefer that it use the Qualcomm Always Connected platform for longer battery life (or have a charger that’s easier to pocket), and that it have a higher nit (more light) screen for outdoor use.Even without these corrections, this leather-covered baby is just a ton easier and better to carry than any other product I currently have access to.For instance, I had to do a day trip to San Francisco last week. I was in coach on a small jet, but I could cantilever the screen so that I could watch movies, while the poor woman next to me was trying the same thing on her little smartphone. I flipped it to the side to read for a while in tablet mode, and when needed, I was able to catch up with email and do research on the Web while in 4G cellular service.Now I know a number of my peers have come to love this thing as well, and that is pushing the other OEMs to create similar products that potentially are even more advanced (and probably will come in black rather than burgundy). However, until then the HP Spectre Folio is my favorite and my product of the week. This thing is AWESOME!The opinions expressed in this article are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of ECT News Network. Autonomous cars are in the works to take the place of services like Uber and Lyft — but where will these cars go to standby and charge? (Most likely will be electric.) If they haven’t already, I have no doubt that the firms thinking of building out this solution will realize that parking structures may become a competitive advantage and will start buying up and retrofitting them for this use.The firm with the most local cars likely is going to get the most riders in a region, and firms that don’t have their own parking may find themselves banned from cities trying to control traffic and limit bad behavior, like double parking, at scale.Cars will go in, charge, and then deploy as needed, staying off the street when they don’t have riders except on the way to pick them up or return from dropping them off. These standby, charging and wait points will be critical to the success of the autonomous ride-sharing car effort. Rob Enderle has been an ECT News Network columnist since 2003.

Autonomous Traffic Control There are going to be some interesting problems with autonomous vehicles at scale that peer-to-peer navigation can’t address. What happens, for instance, if a passenger has a medical emergency, or if a vehicle gets hacked or goes rogue due to some technical problem?A centralized deep learning artificial intelligence could take control of the vehicle, fire up and look through its interior and exterior sensors, and mitigate the risk, but initially it is likely that a human will be called on first to do the job and then oversee it to make sure the AI makes the right decisions.However, I truly doubt that human dispatchers, given the historic problems and delays surrounding this limited resource, will be able to act both fast enough and comprehensively enough.For instance, say a man decided to go from San Francisco to LA and sleep in the car. On the trip he has a heart attack. Sensors in the car would need to pick that up — otherwise it’s going to arrive with a dead passenger. The car would need to be redirected, given a priority lane, and taken to max speed while an emergency response was scrambled. Closing speeds could exceed 300 miles per hour (EMTs and the vehicle going in opposite directions), putting response within around 10 minutes from most anyplace in the country. That’s one scenario.Realize that autonomous vehicles would be excellent explosive delivery platforms, too, and the related threat would need to be identified and mitigated in seconds, particularly if it should involve an autonomous flying vehicle (a poor man’s cruise missile).Some central service is going to need to coordinate responses across a variety of services and resources at computer speeds, once a problem is identified. 2. Autonomous Ride-Sharing Car Harbor HP Spectre Folio I’m giving myself extra wiggle room because we know things rarely happen as fast as we think or progress as slowly as we hope. We all thought we’d have flying cars by the end of last century, for instance, but we are due to be up to our armpits in them by the end of next decade if the impressive number of trials continue to go well.I’ll close with my product of the week: my favorite laptop. We are quickly getting to the point when all the services we subscribe to are becoming an unmanageable and exceedingly expensive. You probably have several music and video streaming services (I do) with overlapping and redundant libraries; identity protection services provided by your credit card companies and third parties; service contracts from different providers on your appliances and vehicles that might be more cheaply handled by one firm; and insurance from a variety of vendors, none of which will protect against your next most likely claim.Managing our lives has become like managing a company. With little or no training, you may be getting overwhelmed by all the services — many, if not most, of which you rarely or never use, and may never need.This suggests we soon will need an overarching service that helps us optimize our spend, makes sure we have what we need when we need it, without massively overspending for things we’ll never need, and that understands our goals and works to further them.This service could handle commitments like taxes, aggregate alerts, and provide direction regarding what to do with them, ensuring our piece of mind without requiring we commit our mental resources to these ongoing issues. Basically, we’ll need our digital assistants to grow up and be like Tony Stark’s Jarvis. I made the HP Spectre Folio the product of the week when I first got it several months back, but I realized last week that it is by far my favorite notebook computer. I have notebooks from all the major vendors but, while not yet perfect, the Folio has become the one notebook I grab most often.This is because it morphs into a usable tablet, a great movie player on planes (thanks to Movies Anywhere) and a decent e-book reader, and it is always connected. I find that often I can leave my backpack, charger and Kindle Fire tablet behind and just carry this laptop, which has been doing wonders for my back. (My backpack, loaded, is impressively heavy.) I get a kick out of efforts to try to protect people from privacy violations by limiting facial scanning. The thing is, if your picture is up someplace on social media, chances are it already has been scanned and linked to personal data. Those cows not only have left the barn — they have left the state, so closing that barn door likely will not do any good.In a recent case, a college student was arrested because someone stole his credit card number and the system identified the crook’s image with the student’s name, connected the student — rather than the crook — to a number of crimes.Right now, there is no easy way even to find out if you are misidentified in the criminal identification systems, let alone fix the problem. Credit monitoring services like Experian help address stolen digital identities. We will need them to expand (the likely path) to biometric hacks, or we’ll have to wait for new services focused on the compromise and correction of misidentified biometric data. Otherwise a lot of us wrongly will end up on no-fly lists or arrest site lists.Realize there is a pretty good chance that while the systems in place can recognize that they have connected the wrong image to the name, their fix might be only to disassociate the image, not correct it. They would fix the picture but still associate you with the crime. I touched on the drone drop issue a little last week, and I have been thinking about it ever since. With the advent of drone deliveries, we need a safe place to drop packages. For homes, the roof would be best because it generally has clear airspace above, it is sturdy in case the package drops prematurely, and it is a ton more secure than a driveway, lawn or porch.It’s also far safer than trying to get a drone to land on a balcony or navigate through an open window (and safer for pets as well, because none of us want to come home to a pet injured by a drone or as a result of tying to catch one).The best companies to do this would be firms that already know how to penetrate the roof safely. I’m thinking firms like Solatube, because the product could be as simple as a roof-mounted chute that would curve and have water drainage at the low point. This would allow the package to roll down to a padded area in an insulated chute arriving in a secure holding area where your package(s) would be safe until you returned.Multitenant buildings could have tenant-only accessible areas with cameras on the top floor where packages could be picked up. Wrapping Up A bigger problem is the coming group of autonomous flying vehicles. They can’t use existing structures, except maybe on roofs, and those won’t handle the kind of volume traffic that Uber likely anticipates with its coming service.For these you’ll likely need purpose-built structures that safely can receive and then deploy these autonomous flying vehicles, which some mistakenly call “flying cars.” (If it just flies, it isn’t a “car” — it is something else.)Given the limited range of these things and the necessary safety envelope for that range, bringing them in from remote areas would both reduce the benefit of timeliness and increase the chances of a catastrophic failure in transit massively, as well as lower the time in service for the vehicles.Flying vehicles likely will need a storage/charging area kind of like aviaries. One source of inspiration for builders could be Japanese science fiction anime. Its artists have been particularly creative with this problem. (This clip is pretty amazing.) 5.

FTC Eyeballs ISPs Data Privacy Practices

first_imgCrime and No Punishment The United States Federal Trade Commission on Tuesday announced an investigation into the privacy policies, procedures and practices of seven Internet broadband providers and related entities:AT&T Inc.AT&T Mobility LLCComcast Cable Communications doing business as XfinityGoogle Fiber Inc.T-Mobile US Inc.Verizon Communications Inc. Cello Partnership dba Verizon Wireless Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., last fall proposed the Consumer Data Protection Act of 2018 to give the FTC the authority and resources to address and prevent threats to consumers’ privacy. Among the reasons offered in support of the legislation:The FTC cannot fine first-time corporate offenders, and fines for subsequent violations of the law are “tiny and not a credible deterrent”;The commission does not have the power to punish companies unless they lie to consumers about how much they protect consumers’ privacy, or their behavior costs consumers money;It does not have the power to set minimum cybersecurity standards for products that process consumer data — nor does any federal regulator; andIt does not have enough staff, especially skilled technology experts. Currently it has about 50 people policing the entire technology sector, as well as credit agencies.Wyden’s bill would empower the FTC to take the following actions:Establish minimum privacy and cybersecurity standards;Issue fines of up to 4 percent of annual revenue on the first offense, and 10- 20-year criminal penalties for senior executives;Create a national Do Not Track system to let consumers stop third-party companies from tracking them on the Web. The system would let consumers pay a fee to use companies’ products and services rather than allow their personal information to be monetized;Give consumers a way to review the personal information a company held about them; challenge inaccuracies in that data; and learn the identities of any other entities that may have accessed it;Hire 175 more staff to police the largely unregulated market for private data; andRequire companies to assess the algorithms that process consumer data to examine their impact on accuracy, fairness, bias, discrimination, privacy and security.”I tend to distrust regulatory structures that build in such extreme penalties, especially when privacy is such an elusive concept generally, and on the Internet specifically,” Frost’s Jude said.”We have run studies of consumer perceptions of the Internet and have asked how concerned with privacy people are,” he noted. “It’s almost a perfect Bell curve centered on ‘not much concerned.'”Further, Wyden’s bill “is clearly modeled on the GDPR, and the GDPR is untested in the market yet,” Jude pointed out, “so we really don’t know the impact it will ultimately have on things like innovation.” “Our customers’ privacy is important to us, and the FTC plays a critical role in privacy regulation,” an AT&T spokesperson said in responses provided to TechNewsWorld by Margaret Boles, assistant vice president of public affairs and federal media relations at AT&T.”We continue to support comprehensive federal legislation to protect consumers’ data throughout the Internet ecosystem, and the FTC is the logical agency to enforce that legislation,” the AT&T spokesperson said. “If the FTC has any questions for us, we will respond appropriately.”AT&T in 2014 paid US$80 million to the FTC for consumer refunds to settle charges of mobile phone cramming — that is, billing for unauthorized third-party charges — as part of a $105 million settlement with federal and state law enforcement officials.In February 2018, AT&T lost its years-long battle against an FTC lawsuit alleging it throttled wireless broadband speeds by up to 90 percent after promising customers unlimited data access.The court decision affirmed the commission’s authority to regulate broadband providers.

His areas of focus include cybersecurity, mobile technologies, CRM, databases, software development, mainframe and mid-range computing, and application development. He has written and edited for numerous publications, including Information Week and Computerworld. He is the author of two books on client/server technology. Email Richard. “More and more, Internet service providers are becoming vertically integrated companies that provide access, create content, and monetize ads served,” FTC spokesperson Juliana Henderson told TechNewsWorld.”At a time when jurisdiction of broadband Internet access service has been restored to the FTC, the commission regarded it to be appropriate to examine the industry to evaluate companies’ privacy practices,” she said. “In particular, through the orders, the commission is asking questions to learn more about how ISPs collect, use, combine, and disclose consumers’ personal information.”Following an investigation, the FTC may initiate an enforcement action if it has reason to believe the law has been violated.”We will determine next steps after staff and the commission have had time to review the requested information,” Henderson said.”When the Federal Communications Commission killed Net neutrality, [FCC Chairman] Ajit Pai basically noted that anticompetitive issues would be best adjudicated at the FTC,” noted Michael Jude, program manager at Stratecast/Frost & Sullivan.”Privacy kind of fits under that rubric,” he told TechNewsWorld. The FTC has ordered the companies to detail how they collect, retain, use, and disclose their use of data from consumers and their devices.The companies must prepare a special report containing specified information and documents, and file it within 45 days of being served with the order.The information sought includes the following:Categories of personal information collected about consumers or their devices, including why the information is collected or used, how it is collected or shared with third parties, internal policies for access to this data, and how long the information is retained;Whether the information is aggregated, anonymized or de-identified;Copies of the companies’ notices and disclosures to consumers about their data collection practices;Whether the companies offer consumers choices about the collection, retention, use and disclosure of personal information, and whether the companies have denied or degraded service to consumers who declined to opt in to data collection; andTheir procedures and processes for letting consumers access, correct or delete their personal information.The special report must restate each item of the order with which the corresponding answer is identified, and must be subscribed and sworn to by a company official who has prepared or supervised the preparation of the report from books, records, correspondence, and other data and material in the company’s possession.If answers are incomplete, companies must provide whatever information is available, and explain in what respects the answers are incomplete, and why.The special report and all accompanying documentary responses must be Bates-stamped.

CES 2019 A Tech Solution for a Standoff

first_imgTo say I’m typically not a fan of CES would be an understatement, but this year was very different. A combination of better logistics and fewer people at the show (likely tied to the government shutdown and China drama), coupled with some truly earth-shattering content, made CES a must-attend event this year.One of the things that jumped out at me — given that the show took place while the controversy heated up over that damn silly wall President Trump wants to build — is that IBM announced a compelling fix. It’s a fix that actually could improve the U.S. government overall.In addition, I had an interesting chat with Frank Shaw at Microsoft on big takeaways from the show, and I think he offered the best one: that this show not only showcased the death of the tech market, but that its death would be a good thing. That should wake up a few folks.I’ll cover all that this week and close with my product of the week: the HP Spectre Folio laptop. Although it was a product of the week last year, it made such a huge difference for me at this show that I’m bringing it up again. I had an interesting off-the-cuff chat with Frank Shaw at Microsoft’s technical showcase. He indicated his big takeaway from CES was that the tech market was dead. Sounds bad, right? But I not only agreed with him, but also welcomed it as a sign of maturity for the technology industry.You see, one of the historic problems with tech companies is that they tend to think they are the center of the universe and know everything about their clients’ businesses. This historically has been a huge problem with companies that operate like Microsoft once did. They’d come in and tell others how to run their businesses.Years ago, I got a panicked call from a CIO whose CEO had met with Bill Gates. Apparently Bill had convinced this banking CEO that he needed to rip out his mainframes, which experienced relatively infrequent downtime, with Windows NT Servers, which were known to crash daily. He wanted me to talk the CEO out of doing it, because it would have killed the company, which I did.Microsoft wasn’t alone. With few exceptions, tech companies would come into an account with their mouths rather than their ears open, and provide solid-sounding advice that actually was brain-dead-stupid, leading to disastrous results.With the rise of the huge Linux and open source initiatives, the industry began to grok that if firms wanted to survive, they had to listen, and do what their clients wanted done. While this thinking forms the basis of Microsoft’s current customer engagement strategy, it is hardly alone.Much of the work I saw from most of the major companies that supply tech to clients appears focused on this same pivot, and that means the tech market has been subsumed into other markets. It now is a critical part of automotive, aerospace, farming, manufacturing, government, enterprise and others.The reason that this is good is that we’re getting far better results. Microsoft showcased its work with a variety of retailers like Kroger in creating higher-yield stores. It is interesting to note that some newer firms (I won’t mention names, but one sounds like Oogle) don’t yet get this. Speaking of Alphabet, as I write this, I just got a call that the firm has been hit with a massive sexual harassment lawsuit, indicating it is about to have a Harvey Weinstein moment. CES 2019’s Fix for the Clash Over Trump’s Wall Now apply this to a debate on the wall. Both sides would go through this process, which would result in the system producing the strongest true arguments from each side (eliminating the false facts from both). A third party viewing the results then could determine which side presented the strongest best argument.Now think about this in the context of a political debate. Individuals with access to this system either would be able to present the best arguments supporting their positions, or realize that their positions were untenable, possibly leading them to make some changes before taking the stage.At least with respect to political debates, those who took advantage of this system arguably would be unbeatable, because they would have the strongest argument and be on the right side. (Even if they chose to be on the wrong side, they likely would still win against opponents who didn’t have access to this system.)This approach could be built into a social media system like Facebook. It could be used as a mechanism to resolve a dispute in a timely way, taking the place of annoying strings of pointless arguments. (It might be possible to mine Facebook’s existing threads to build a model for this type of application.)Just think — this could make Facebook part of the solution, offsetting its current position as a huge part of the problem.From a personal standpoint, it might provide answers to critical questions like which argument is strongest when someone wants to convince a spouse or parents to buy something, or to persuade opponents in a dispute that their position is wrong.IBM’s Project Debater has the potential to change the very nature of discussion, and make social networks like Facebook relevant again. Overshadowing CES this year was the government shutdown, which not only prevented a lot of government speakers from attending the show, but also raised the specter of many of us running into a nightmare when we headed home (due to a potential TSA strike). The standoff was on my mind when I met with Ranit Aharonov, IBM’s manager of debating technologies, and Noam Slonim, IBM’s senior technical staff member of debating technologies.I was looking forward to the meeting, because I once trained to be a debater when I was thinking of becoming a lawyer. Sadly, my school’s debate program was killed due to lack of budget. What IBM’s Project Debater does is use a new form of artificial intelligence — kind of a blend of machine learning and deep learning — to capture the best arguments on a subject.It does this by training the system with humans (which seems more like machine learning) but it doesn’t use data scientists as an interface (which is more like deep learning). The machine trains itself by observing submissions of arguments on a topic from real people, as well as the results of real people comparing two arguments on the same side and choosing which is better.For instance, let’s say we were debating whether the world was flat. People would submit arguments on both sides and get back arguments on the side they supported and then pick the best ones. They would compare arguments on the same side in order to minimize bias. The system then would trains itself, utilizing its access to a deep repository of true facts, in order to determine the best arguments on a topic. Next week I’ll share my reactions to some of the wild and interesting products I saw at CES, including a hearing aid that can be used as a fitness tracker, a solar-powered smartwatch with weeks of battery life, and a machine that makes super-clean water out of solar energy and air.Overall, I saw some incredibly interesting progress at the show (including the world’s first fourth-generation 20 qubit quantum computer).Rather than being a must-miss show, CES turned out to be a critical show to attend this year. It could be even better if I could just convince Las Vegas and CES to implement some of this wonderful technology to improve transport. It is still way to hard to get around the event. Wrapping Upcenter_img HP Spectre Folio I was tempted to make the Osé sex toy, which is designed for women, my product of the week. After it received an innovation award, CES revoked it, saying it didn’t fit any of its product categories, and banned its display at the show. In the past, CES has featured various male-oriented sex tech products, so this seemed like blatant sexism to me.The company, Lora DiCarlo, developed the gadget in collaboration with Oregon State University. Its CEO, Lora Haddock, lives near me. This kind of blatant sexism just pisses me off and put a cloud over the show.However, the reason I went with the HP Spectre Folio is that at every CES, I’ve carried a backpack during the show to make sure I have everything I need. My backpack weighs in, with laptop, at around 35 pounds, and lugging the thing around the show pretty much wipes me out. It is basically 12 to 14 hours of running between meetings, briefings and keynotes, and waiting in lines. (I literally tore off both soles of my feet one year, and that was impressively painful.)This year all I carried was the 3.2-pound HP Spectre Folio. I’ve been unwilling to just carry a laptop in the past, because they are hard to hold, the Amazon Kindle reader on the PC sucks, and I run out of battery before I run out of work.Well, the leather-wrapped Folio is easy to hold, and it has all-day battery life. I discovered that Amazon fixed its reader (I read when I have downtime between meetings), and the result was that I didn’t feel like I’d been ridden hard and put away wet this year.This thing may not be a sex toy, but it is still amazing, and it just became my favorite show-going PC because I never want to have to lug my massive backpack around ever again.Oh, and it has built-in WAN wireless, which helped when I was at events where the WiFi sucked (and there were several). Because the HP Spectre Folio made CES livable for me this year, it is my product of the week. (I just wish it came in black.)

Study Urban Inuit communities have more health problems than general Canadian population

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Oct 10 2018Cases of cancer and hypertension are much higher among Inuit living in and around Ottawa than for the general population of Canada’s capital city. This is according to a study co-led by Janet Smylie of St. Michael’s Hospital and the University of Toronto in Canada and published in the Springer-branded Canadian Journal of Public Health. The study was conducted in partnership with an Inuit-specific service provider called Tungasuvvingat Inuit (TI) that provides social support, cultural activities, counseling and crisis intervention to the Inuit community in Ontario, who led the collection of study data. According to Smylie, some of the findings of the research have already been incorporated into the development of a new culturally appropriate medical care program for Inuit in Ottawa.Life expectancy, infant mortality and chronic diseases experienced by Inuit living in northern Canada are often compared to those of low-income countries and contrast starkly with what would be expected from an affluent country. According to a recent survey, 27 percent of Inuit in Canada now live outside of the traditional Inuit Nunangat (traditional homelands), and two in every five reside in large urban centers.Information was gathered from 341 Inuit adults in Ottawa about their monthly incomes, health concerns, education, access to food and how they experienced the healthcare options available to them.The researchers found that the Inuit population in Ottawa is actually four times larger than the organization Statistics Canada estimates, and 40 percent of Inuit adults are under the age of 35. Also, the study showed that Ottawa is an established and long-term permanent place of residence to 56 percent of the study participants.Working together with TI, Smylie and her colleagues also found that many Inuit living in Ottawa were living in poverty, with 69.3 percent reporting that they earned less than 20 000 Canadian dollars per year. More than half (53.9 percent) did not have any official income. Lack of financial resources went hand in hand with crowded living conditions (20 percent of those surveyed lived in crowded accommodation) and not having enough food to eat (55 percent). The situation was slightly better for Inuit who were official permanent residents of the city.Related StoriesApplication of machine learning methods to healthcare outcomes researchFSMB releases new report surveying digital credentials in healthcareAlmost 74% of Americans show concern about burnout among healthcare professionalsOne in every four respondents to the survey reported suffering from hypertension, while 6.8 percent had cancer and 6.7 percent suffered from chronic bronchitis. Allergies were also rife. The occurrence of these diseases was found to be much higher among Inuit compared to the Canadian average.Two in every five (43 percent) respondents struggled to access relevant health services. Smylie says this might be one of the reasons why Inuit so often seek emergency care, rather than being hospitalized and treated for specific conditions.”The disproportionate burden of chronic disease is particularly disconcerting given that Ottawa’s Inuit population is much younger than the city’s general population and the likelihood of underdiagnosis given the access to care issues that existed at the time of our study,” explains Smylie.While some of the numbers are deficit-based, the research highlights the importance of partnerships between minority service providers and mainstream organizations, specifically concerning effective communication. In the case of this community, retention of the Inuktitut language is strong; of the urban Inuit community, 24 percent speak Inuktitut only and 34 percent are bilingual in Inuktitut and English.Jason LeBlanc, Executive Director of Tungasuvvingat Inuit, said: “This study was particularly successful because the Inuit communities and social networks are strong within an urban setting. Using the Respondent Driven Sampling method helped engage traditionally hard to identify populations and this worked particularly well here. Overall, the success of this research is thanks to a respectful partnership between the research team and Tungasuvvingat Inuit.” Source:https://www.springer.com/gp/about-springer/media/research-news/all-english-research-news/urban-inuit-communities-suffer-from-poor-health-and-limited-access-to-healthcare/16172110last_img read more

Getting the Most Out of the CLARITY Technique

Sponsored Content by Logos BiosystemsDec 17 2018 insights from industryDr. Tim SteppeApplication SpecialistLogos BiosystemsAn interview with Dr. Tim Steppe (Ph.D.) from Logos Biosystems at SfN 2018, discussing the latest advances in the CLARITY technique and his top tips for scientists using this method in their research.What makes CLARITY such a useful research technique for neuroscientists?CLARITY allows researchers to map projections in neurons by carrying out in-depth 3D imaging on organs and tissues. The brain is one of the best tissues that you can image using this method as it has such a high lipid content. CLARITY allows researchers to trace pathways of neurons, look at connections, and potentially look at discontinuities between healthy and altered states.80’s Child | ShutterstockSome of the early examples of using CLARITY were researching drug addiction in mice within the lab and the modeling of disease. CLARITY provides researchers with the ability to see the brain in more detail and to develop an understanding of how it’s organized at the cellular level.What kinds of neurological diseases can CLARITY be used to study?All sorts of diseases! It can also be used to study neuronal development and how structures grow and project. The major application of CLARITY is the study of disease states, such as Alzheimer’s disease, to be compared to normal states. It has also been used to look at glioblastoma, Parkinson’s disease, and other neurological lesions. We have a general set of guidelines that we provide to help researchers, but every sample or every model system is going to be slightly different. We have developed protocols and parameters that will work fairly well for everything, with the ultimate tweaking and optimization coming from the researchers themselves.Why did you feel it was important to develop a CLARITY solution for antibody labeling?With the multi-sample holders that we’ve developed and speed of the X-CLARITY system, the bottleneck in time now falls to antibody labeling. With our new labeling kit, we’ve halved the amount of time it takes to stain the sample.Conventional antibody labeling with a cleared whole mouse brain sample can require a 7 to 14 day incubation period with each antibody – primary and secondary – meaning it can take anywhere between two to four weeks to do the labeling. With the DeepLabel Antibody Staining Kit, however, it only requires a total of 7 days for a whole mouse brain.The other benefit of our labeling kit is that it increases the binding of the antibodies to the targets. This applies not only to clear, thick tissue samples, but also thin sections.  So, for example, it can help increase the binding of antibodies to recalcitrant targets such as neurotransmitters.nobeastsofierce | ShutterstockWhat are the next steps for your company, and the technologies you produce?Over the next few years, we would like to be able to provide a complete solution to the entire tissue clearing workflow. Our overall goal is to provide researchers with an entire system which delivers clear tissues, images, and analysis.Our immediate next steps will include improving the clearing method and the antibody labeling kit that we have developed, and then developing a light sheet microscope that is optimized for use with CLARITY.Our core mission is to develop innovative cellular imaging and analysis tools.  Currently, our main product line is automated cell counters along with automated microscopes for screening and other high-throughput studies.Where can readers find more information?A step-by-step guide to CLARITY by Logos Biosystems.About Dr. Tim SteppeTim Steppe has Ph.D. in Marine Sciences from UNC-Chapel Hill and has 15 years of industry experience mostly spent with start-ups and smaller companies in various roles including tech support, sales, and marketing.In his current role as an Application Specialist at Logos Biosystems, Tim is responsible for customer and sales force education and market development for new Logos products.About Logos BiosystemsLogos Biosystems specializes in developing life science tools and technologies for a wide spectrum of applications including basic research, quality control, and drug discovery.

What challenges have researchers faced in the past when performing CLARITY?After Karl Deisseroth’s lab at Stanford University released the method in 2013, researchers began trying to build their own homegrown electrophoretic systems. Biologists are not usually engineers, so many ran into all sorts of problems that led to poorly cleared or ruined samples.At Logos Biosystems, we have engineered the X-CLARITY systems and reagents for tissue clearing that allows researchers to reliably and consistently clear tissues. This prevents researchers from ruining their sample and provides reproducible clearing from sample to sample.What is the X-CLARITY and what benefits does it offer over manually carrying out the technique?The most important thing for everyone: time.  After researchers began exploring CLARITY, they realized that it was also a really great technique for clearing tissues from the brain tissue, but also for clearing lipids from other tissues and organs. However, the lack of success with many homemade systems drove many researchers back to a passively clearing their samples, where no current is applied help remove lipids. The issue with this is that you’re running into weeks and weeks of clearing time.With the X-CLARITY, researchers can clear up to six whole brains in as little as 7 to 12 hours. Rather than weeks to months for passive clearing, With the X-CLARITY, it now only takes hours.Previously, when people wanted to build a 3D image or model of their system, they had to painstakingly slice samples down to 20 to 30 microns, prep those samples, image each separately, and then stitch them together.CLARITY allows people to better leverage optical sectioning technology, which is just a fancy way to describe either a confocal microscope, a light sheet microscope, or a multiphoton microscope. Once the lipids have been removed, these systems are able to delve deep into the sample, generating better images in a far faster manner.Another aspect is flexibility. The X-CLARITY allows the current, voltage, and temperature to be modulated, depending on the sample type. This allows researchers to optimize the conditions for their own particular sample and model system. read more

Neighborhood income education associated with risk of disability progression in MS patients

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Feb 23 2019Neighborhood income and education level is associated with risk of disability progression in patients with multiple sclerosis, suggests new research from the University of British Columbia.UBC researchers, along with colleagues in Wales, compared population health data across several measures of socioeconomic status, and found that lower neighborhood-level income and educational attainment was associated with an increased likelihood of reaching key physical disability milestones, such as difficulties with walking.The findings–published online today in Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology–paint a clearer picture of the way that wealth and education might affect patients with MS.”This study is the first of its kind,” says the study’s senior author Helen Tremlett, professor in the division of neurology at UBC and the Canada Research Chair in neuroepidemiology and multiple sclerosis. “Previous studies have looked at the relationship between socioeconomic status and risk of developing MS. Here, we were able to show a relationship between socioeconomic status and subsequent risk of disability progression.”MS is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when the body’s immune system attacks myelin, the fatty material that insulates neurons to enable rapid transmission of electrical signals. When myelin or neurons are damaged, communication between the brain and other parts of the body is disrupted leading to impaired ability including vision problems, muscle weakness, difficulty with balance and coordination, and cognitive decline. Most people who live with MS will experience some form of reduced ability.As the Welsh and Canadian systems for tracking population health data are similar, the team was able to access comparable information for the two groups of patients. For the Canadian patients, the team determined socioeconomic status based on census data, which links postal codes with neighborhood-level income. Clinical information from a provincial MS database was linked with population-based provincial health administrative data. The Welsh patients were assessed by linking similar datasets, including National Health Service information, postal code-related income data and educational attainment.A key component of this study was that the data on socioeconomic status were captured before MS onset, therefore predating any possible effect of the disease itself on socioeconomic status.Related StoriesSmarter, more educated people get a cognitive ‘head start’, but aren’t protected from Alzheimer’sMice study suggests potential treatment approach for MS in humansNature of social cognitive deficits in people with progressive multiple sclerosisThe researchers did not look at specific factors that might explain the relationship between lower socioeconomic status and higher risk of disability progression, but they suggest that modifiable lifestyle factors, such as diet and exercise, could be involved.”If that is the case, the risk may be amenable to change,” says Tremlett. “One of the next steps is to understand why this relationship exists.”North Vancouver resident Marilyn Lenzen, who was diagnosed with MS nearly two decades ago, says she wasn’t surprised to learn that researchers have now established a clear link between socioeconomic status and disability progression in patients with MS.”I’m glad to see that there is now research that backs up what I and many in the MS community have been experiencing for years,” says Lenzen. “Someone who has the financial means to buy healthier food or afford to participate in yoga, pilates or specialized exercise to rebuild their strength after a relapse doesn’t experience the same progression of disabling symptoms as others who can’t afford to access the same healthy lifestyle choices.”After her diagnosis, Lenzen, now 59, could no longer keep up with the long hours and extensive travel required by her corporate job. When she gave up her job, however, she also lost her extended health benefits and experienced a significant decline in household income.”When I was first diagnosed, I remember having to crawl on my knees up the stairs to get to bed every night,” she recalls. “But I was determined to exercise and to keep my muscles strong. I took up cycling and with the assistance of an e-bike, cycled 3,000 kilometres last year.”I do still have occasional relapses but the relapses are not as bad and I have the strength in my body to rebuild again. I wish that everyone with MS, regardless of their socioeconomic status, has the same lifestyle opportunities to slow the progression of their disease.”The researchers hope that future MS studies will consider the socioeconomic status of participants, especially if multiple study sites are involved and findings are compared across regions, as their socioeconomic status could be an important factor in disability progression.

Study Online diet goalsetting helped pregnant women achieve healthy weight gain

first_img Source:https://www.elsevier.com/about/press-releases/research-and-journals/online-tool-encourages-healthy-weight-gain-during-pregnancy Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Apr 9 2019Goal-setting and self-monitoring tools successfully used by some expectant mothers, according to a new study published in the Journal of Nutrition Education and BehaviorExcessive weight gain during pregnancy increases the risk of obesity in both mothers and babies. To avoid dangerous gestational weight gain, it is important to identify effective tools for behavior change. A new study appearing in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, published by Elsevier, found online diet goal-setting helped women achieve healthy weight gain if they started the study with a normal body weight, but it was not effective for women with a higher body mass index (BMI).”As we look to the future, digital behavioral nutrition interventions will become more widely used,” said lead author Christine M. Olson, PhD, Division of Nutritional Sciences, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA. “This study is an example of the research needed to understand which tools will be useful in real- world digital interventions for pregnant women.”Pregnant women between 18 and 35 years of age were eligible to participate if they were healthy and had a normal to obese BMI. Additionally, they needed to be less than 20 weeks pregnant, available for follow-up appointments, planned to keep the baby, spoke English, and could be contacted by email. Once accepted into the study, the participants were separated into groups by income level and BMI. There were two intervention and one control groups.Prior to starting the study, participants completed an online questionnaire to elicit psychosocial data including attitudes and beliefs; motivation; and environmental constraints including social, economic and personal barriers. Weight data were gathered through an audit of prenatal, labor and delivery, and postpartum medical records.Related StoriesCannabis use during pregnancy may cause premature birthMaternal obesity may negatively affect children’s lung developmentStudy uncovers potential new way to prevent common pregnancy-related complicationsAll groups were given access to a website featuring blogs, local resources, informative articles, frequently asked questions, and event reminders. The intervention groups were able to use additional tools including a weight gain tracker, as well as goal-setting tools for diet and physical activity. Goal suggestions were listed in a drop-down menu or participants could set a custom goal.Of the nearly 900 women in the intervention group, slightly less than half of the participants started using the diet goal-setting tool with one third actually setting a goal and one fifth starting self-monitoring. Women in the normal weight group who set two or more goals gained less weight than those who set fewer goals. This did not hold true for women in the higher BMI group. These women gained more than women who set fewer goals. Women in the normal weight group, who moved on to the self-monitoring step, also reduced their risk of excessive weight gain, but self-monitoring of diet did not help women who were overweight or obese. Nearly all women who set a goal selected a self-reward.”The diet goal-setting tool appears to be an effective component of online intervention for weight gain management for women who begin pregnancy with normal BMI. Although the tool was used more frequently by women who were overweight, it was not effective in reducing their risk of excessive weight gain,” concluded Dr. Olson. “This group may need more personalized, face-to-face approaches to dietary change.”last_img read more

Nintendo thinks inside the box with cardboard Switch accessory

The Nintendo Labo is a range of pre-perforated cardboard sheets that users fold into holders for the Switch and its controllers.They range from a mini piano to a fishing rod, and users can manipulate the DIY holders to interact with the Switch as they play games, for example pressing a cardboard piano key to produce music.Nintendo unveiled the line with a slick video, featuring ways the accessories can be customised with stickers and paint.”With Nintendo Labo, building is just as much fun as playing,” the company said.Reaction online was mixed, with many Nintendo users hailing the unusual idea.”This isn’t something I’m personally interested (in) but I just love how Nintendo continues to be unique and innovative,” wrote user Matt Martin on the Twitter account @missingwords.But others baulked at the cost of the kits, which will go on sale April 20 priced at $69.99 for a set of five different DIY sheets, or $79.99 for a single more elaborate “robot kit.””Feel free to tell me I’m nuts… but doesn’t $70+ for the Nintendo Labo cardboard stuff seem incredibly expensive for something that’s not that durable, especially in the hands of kids?” wrote Jason Stoff on the @jstoff Twitter account.”I applaud Nintendo’s ingenuity, but I’m not handing my $300 Switch and an $80 cardboard box over to my kids,” added Twitter user @Matt_Silverman.Investors responded positively however, with Nintendo stock closing up over two percent.”This is extremely fresh. It’s a surprise,” Hideki Yasuda, an analyst at Ace Research Institute, told Bloomberg.”It’s hard to estimate how much it will sell. They’re targeting families, so likely kids will buy it first, but it could broaden to other generations.”Nintendo launched the Switch console in March 2017, and aims to sell 14 million units through March 2018.

European clocks slowed by lag in continents power grid

In this Nov. 1, 2017 file photo high power cables hang from a pole on a field in Hattersheim, Germany. ​​Millions of Europeans who arrived late to work or school Wednesday March 7, 2018 have a good excuse: an unprecedented slowing of the frequency of the continent’s electricity grid. The Brussels-based European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity, or ENTSO-E, says the problem began mid-January and affects 25 countries, from Portugal to Poland and Greece and Germany. (AP Photo/Michael Probst,file) © 2018 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. The problem is caused by a political dispute between Serbia and Kosovo that’s sapping a small amount of energy from the local grid, causing a domino effect across the 25-nation network spanning the continent from Portugal to Poland and Greece to Germany.”Since the European system is interconnected … when there is an imbalance somewhere the frequency slightly drops,” said Claire Camus, a spokeswoman for the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity.The Brussels-based organization, known as ENTSO-E, said in a separate statement that “this average frequency deviation, that has never happened in any similar way in the Continental European power system, must cease.”The deviation from Europe’s standard 50 Hz frequency has been enough to cause electric clocks that keep time by the power system’s frequency, rather than built-in quartz crystals, to fall behind by about six minutes since mid-January. The problem mostly affects radio alarms, oven clocks or clocks used to program heating systems.ENTSO-E said it’s working on a technical solution that could bring the system back to normal within “a few weeks,” but urged European authorities and national governments to address the political problem at the heart of the issue.”This is beyond the technical world. Now there needs to be an agreement between Serbia and Kosovo about this lack of energy in the Kosovo system. You need to solve it politically and then technically,” Camus told The Associated Press.The friction between Serbia and Kosovo is part of a broader dispute that goes back almost 20 years. Since the war in Kosovo ended in 1999, the Serb-dominated north of Kosovo that remains loyal to Belgrade, haven’t paid the Kosovo government for the energy they consume.A 2015 agreement was meant to resolve the dispute, but Serbia has blocked its implementation.Serbia’s power grid company EMS blamed the problem on Kosovo, claiming that in January and February the country “was uninterruptedly withdrawing, in an unauthorized manner, uncontracted electric energy from the Continental Europe synchronous area.”Kadri Kadriu, deputy manager of Kosovo’s grid operator KOSTT, acknowledged that electricity from elsewhere was diverted to the Serb minority in the north, but said consumers there hadn’t paid for their electricity, causing considerable financial burden to the company.ENTSO-E warned that “if no solution can be found at political level, a deviation risk could remain.”So far the only consequence seems to be the effect on clocks.”The system is built in such a way that all your basic needs are really secured by the distribution and the transmission system operators,” Camus said. “Frankly, there is no risk other than those clocks running behind.” Citation: European clocks slowed by lag in continent’s power grid (2018, March 7) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-03-european-clocks-lag-continent-power.html Europe’s electricity operators prepare for March solar eclipse Millions of Europeans who arrived late to work or school Wednesday had a good excuse—an unprecedented lag in the continent’s electricity grid that’s slowing down some clocks.

Ayodhya case SC extends time till August 15 for mediation process

first_img SHARE SHARE EMAIL SHARE File photo The Supreme Court on Friday extended till August 15 the time for a panel of mediators, headed by former apex court judge Justice F M I Kalifulla, to explore an amicable solution to the politically sensitive Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute at Ayodhya.A five judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said they have received the report from Justice Kalifulla in which the panel has sought extension of time till August 15 to complete mediation proceedings.“If the mediators are optimistic about the result and are seeking time till August 15, what is the harm in granting time? This issue has been pending for years and years. Why should we not grant time,” the bench also comprising Justices S A Bobde, D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer told the counsel appearing for the parties.The counsel appearing for both the Hindu and Muslim parties expressed confidence over the ongoing mediation proceedings and said they are fully cooperating with the process.At the outset the bench said they have received the report on May 7 from the chairman of the panel and they have requested the court to consider extending the time till August 15 to complete the mediation proceedings.“We have perused and considered the report of May 7 of Justice F M I Kalifulla indicating the progress made in the mediation proceeding.”“Chairman of the mediation committee has sought extension of time till August 15 to enable the committee to find an amicable solution. We are inclined to grant time till August 15,” the bench said.One of the advocates appearing in the matter said the apex court had earlier given eight weeks time to the panel of mediators and now nine weeks have gone by.“We had given eight weeks and the report has come. We are not inclined to tell you what is there in the report of the committee,” the bench said.One of the counsel told the bench that there are around 13,990 pages of documents in vernacular languages and said some wrong translations have been made which would be a problem.“Objections, if any, on the translation may be placed on the record by written note by June 30,” the bench said, adding, “Nobody will come in the way of mediation.”The top court had fixed the seat for mediation process in Faizabad of Uttar Pradesh, around seven kilometres (km) from Ayodhya, and said adequate arrangements including the venue of the mediation, place of stay of the mediators, their security, travel should be forthwith arranged by the state government so that proceedings could commence immediately.It had also directed that the mediation proceedings be held in-camera as per norms applicable to conduct mediation proceedings.Fourteen appeals have been filed in the apex court against the 2010 Allahabad High Court judgment, delivered in four civil suits, that the 2.77-acre land in Ayodhya be partitioned equally among the three parties — the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla.On December 6, 1992, the Babri Masjid, constructed at the disputed site in the 16th century by Shia Muslim Mir Baqi, was demolished.

Samajwadi Partys Azam Khan faces arrest in land grabbing torture case

first_img Indo-Asian News Service New DelhiJuly 13, 2019UPDATED: July 13, 2019 19:07 IST Azam Khan allegedly forged documents and grabbed land worth over several hundred crores for Mohammed Ali Jauhar University. (Photo: PTI)More than two dozen poor farmers were illegally detained and tortured for several days before their lands were “forcibly grabbed” by senior Samajwadi Party (SP) leader and MP Azam Khan in Uttar Pradesh’s Rampur district, the police said on Saturday.According to a criminal case registered at Rampur’s Azim Nagar Police Station, Azam Khan and his close aide, former Deputy Superintendent of UP Police Aalehasan Khan, allegedly forged documents and grabbed land worth over several hundred crores for Mohammed Ali Jauhar University, a multi-crore private project of the SP leader.”Twenty-six farmers have stated that Azam Khan and Aalehasan illegally detained and pressured them to sign on a forged sale deed in a bid to acquire their land running into several thousand hectares,” Ajay Pal Sharma, Superintendent of Police, Rampur said.”When the farmers refused to sign on the papers, their land was forcibly occupied. Aalehasan, then circle officer of Rampur, misused his official position in grabbing the land belonging to the poor. After verifying facts we have registered a criminal case against Azam Khan and Aalehasan,” said Sharma.The case against the SP leader was registered on the basis of an enquiry by the UP Revenue Department, which checked all relevant documents and recorded statements of farmers who mainly belong to the minority community.”On the basis of the main complaint of the Revenue Department, now 26 separate cases will be filed (against Azam Khan) as it involves different patches of land and different owners,” said the Rampur district police chief.Asked whether Azam Khan could be arrested, Sharma said, “It may happen any time. The investigation is on.”The FIR (relating to case) says besides grabbing farmers’ lands, Azam Khan, also misused his position (as Cabinet Minister of UP during 2012-2017) to illegally occupy over 5,000 hectares of land adjoining the banks of Kosi river, which flows along the University campus.The land falls by the Kosi riverside and cannot be acquired. “But revenue records were allegedly forged and the land, worth over several hundred crores, was illegally occupied by Mohammed Jauhar Ali University,” said a Revenue Officer.According to the Revenue Officer, the forged documents to fraudulently occupy the riverbed, are now strong evidence against Azam Khan.Azam Khan’s dream project, Mohammed Ali Jauhar University, was conceived as a private Urdu university in 2004. Acquisition of land and construction of the university campus started rapidly after the Samajwadi Party (SP) came to power in UP and Azam Khan became one of its most powerful ministers.In 2012, the Akhilesh Yadav government granted the university’s lifelong chancellorship to Azam Khan, a move which was opposed by then UP Governor.Last month, BJP leader Jayaprada, who contested the 2019 Lok Sabha polls against Azam Khan, filed a complaint with the Election Commission seeking the newly elected MP’s disqualification for also holding an office of profit as the chancellor of Mohammed Ali Jauhar University.Jaya Prada cited two examples — one of Sonia Gandhi and another of Jaya Bachchan — both of whom had to resign as MPs and re-contest polls on grounds of holding the office of profit.IANS tried to contact Azam Khan for his comments on being booked in cases of land grabbing, but could not reach him. A Samajwadi Party office-bearer said the BJP was trying to malign the SP stalwart’s image, who had established a world-class university for the people of UP in Rampur.Also Read | FIR against Azam Khan for sexist khaki underwear remark against Jaya PradaAlso Read | Jaya Prada challenges election of Azam Khan from Uttar Pradesh, RampurAlso Watch | He always lies, is taking U-turn: Jaya Prada on Azam Khan’s sexist remarksFor the latest World Cup news, live scores and fixtures for World Cup 2019, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
