first_imgAberdeen manager Derek McInnes has confirmed that the injury suffered by Gary Mackay-Steven is not severe after a clash of heads with Dedryck Boyata.The winger was stretched off during Aberdeen Scottish Cup final loss to Celtic on Sunday, but his manager revealed he has suffered no major damage.“I saw his family down at the dugout and there was an obvious concern there,” McInnes said, according to The National. “I was told he was unconscious and there was an urgency to get medics onto the park.”“Thankfully he’s sitting up in hospital, getting his tests down and it will be hopefully a straightforward concussion. Obviously, he misses the next game but I’m gutted for Gary because he was so looking forward to the opportunity to shine and has been in good form for us.”ABERDEEN, SCOTLAND - MAY 04: Manager of Celtic Neil Lennon celebrates as his side secured the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership title after the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Aberdeen and Celtic at Pittodrie Stadium on May 04, 2019 in Aberdeen, Scotland.

Medina – May 5, 2019 According to the team manager, the way the supporters behave this season helped the team achieve an eighth consecutive title.Meanwhile, McInnes also admitted he is unhappy with match referee Andrew Dallas, following his decision to award Celtic a penalty kick.“The penalty decision didn’t do us any real harm, but it wasn’t a penalty in the first place,” he said.“It was clearly outside the box. If we didn’t have a goalie like Joe Lewis it would have been 2-0 and far more difficult.”“I also felt there was another yellow card challenge from Ryan Christie when Dom Ball breaks. The ref said he played the ball when he clearly didn’t. You need a lot of things to go for you in a final and it might sound churlish but a couple of decisions were really harsh on my team today.”“I love Ryan Christie, but it was another yellow card and the referee was in a brilliant position to see that and I don’t understand how he can say he played the ball.”last_img read more

Photo : AFPIsrael’s military struck more than 30 “military targets” in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday in response to a barrage of rocket and mortar fire from the Palestinian enclave, the army said.Army spokesman Jonathan Conricus told journalists the rocket and mortar fire at Israel was the most extensive since a 2014 war as was Israel’s response.”We just concluded a significant aerial strike where we struck more than 30 different military targets belonging to terrorist organisations,” Conricus said.”Amongst those a tunnel and different components of military infrastructure belonging to Hamas and to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.”Early Tuesday, a barrage of mortar shells from the Gaza Strip were fired at Israel. Most of the some 28 mortar shells were intercepted by Israeli air defences and no injuries were reported.Later in the day, Israel said it intercepted further projectiles fired from the Gaza Strip.There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but there was speculation the mortars were fired by Islamic Jihad in revenge for a recent incident that left three of its members dead.Hamas, the Islamist movement that runs the Gaza Strip, said in a statement “what the resistance carried out this morning comes within the framework of the natural right to defend our people”.Tuesday’s incidents came after weeks of deadly demonstrations and clashes along the Gaza-Israel border, beginning on March 30.They peaked on May 14, when at least 61 Palestinians were killed as tens of thousands of Gazans protested and clashes erupted on the same day of the US transfer of its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.No Israelis have been killed.last_img read more

August 30, 2016 — Siemens Healthineers announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared the Somatom Drive computed tomography (CT) system. This new dual-source scanner is designed to drive precision in diagnostic imaging across a wide range of clinical disciplines, from pediatrics and emergency medicine to cardiology and oncology. The system has the potential to reduce examination time, preparation and follow-up care.The Somatom Drive CT system is equipped with the new Straton MX Sigma X-ray tubes and Sigma generators, which allow for more targeted beam focusing and enable examinations using high energy levels at low voltages. These lower voltages may allow clinicians to use less contrast, which can be burdensome for patients who are seriously ill or have reduced kidney function. And because the X-ray tube voltages are adjustable in 10 kV increments ranging from 70 to 140 kV, clinicians can tailor the voltage and, therefore, the dose to each patient. Scanning at a lower kV level reduces patient radiation exposure.This technology helps enable CT lung scans to be performed at an extremely low dose, which could prove beneficial for lung cancer screening. With this combination of low doses and high diagnostic reliability, the Somatom Drive is also ideal for spinal diagnostics and orthopedic examinations. Additionally, the scanner’s Dual Energy mode can help clinicians accurately differentiate between tissue and bone.The speed of the system supports pediatric CT examinations with no sedation. And the system’s Stellar Infinity detector and integrated iterative reconstruction capabilities, coupled with the use of very low kV levels, support an environment where the lowest doses are used for pediatric patients.Elderly patients who present to the hospital with undiagnosed chest pain and breathing difficulties are among the patient populations who can benefit from the ability to breathe freely during scanning with the new system. And thanks to the system’s ultra-fast scanning speed, the patient’s heart and lung movement does not compromise diagnostic imaging quality. Further, since a cardiac scan can be performed in one heartbeat, beta-blockers may no longer be required to slow the heartbeat of some patients.These patient benefits also may lead to smoother workflows in the radiology department. If the clinical images from the first CT scan are of diagnostic quality, multiple scans are not necessary. For most patients with reduced kidney function, a lower dose of contrast media may reduce the need for related preparation and follow-up. And since the scanner supports the potential to perform CT examinations with no sedation, anesthetic support and additional intensive medical care may not be required.For more information: www.healthcare.siemens.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Video Player is loading.Cynthia McCollough explains new advances in CT technologyPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 13:56Loaded: 1.17%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -13:56 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

first_img The innovative franchise system launched by a mortgage company may enable mortgage brokers to go into business for themselves and earn additional compensation in an industry recently beset by tough new compensation rules.[IMAGE]In a June 2 release, “”LenderCity””:http://www.lendercity.com, a Missouri-based company, announced its completion of a Uniform Franchise Disclosure Document (UFDD), which will allow licensed brokers running businesses to retain their financial independence and access back-end services without losing their identities.Greg Harris, LenderCity’s president and CEO, said that the franchise model differs significantly from the better-known net branch model, which requires brokers and loan officers to give up their licenses, accommodate new accounting procedures, and “”essentially become an employee.””””The franchise program allows loan officers to get into business for themselves and allows them to take home a much bigger slice of the pie instead of having to split”” it with other brokers, Harris said. A mortgage broker’s existing company “”will stay intact but operate as a LenderCity office under the program.””[COLUMN_BREAK]””The franchise system that we have empowers them to go back into business for themselves,”” he added.Harris said that brokers and loan officers that sign up with the franchise will retain rights to the LenderCity brand, receive customer service and administrative support, and continue to operate independently.””There are certain systems in place that they’ll have to follow,”” such as assuming the LenderCity name, Harris added. “”This is to keep all lender services the same, but mortgage brokers won’t be employees ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô their licenses are theirs, their books are theirs.””Harris said he will allow LenderCity to accommodate 20 new franchises in 2011, and 40 over the course of 2012. He reported zero competition, citing a shortage of franchise systems in the loan origination broker channel, where net branches, independent businesses, and retail and correspondent shops dominate the employment landscape. He said that brokerage systems are popular in Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom, but entirely absent in the United States.LenderCity’s franchise system announcement comes on the heels of a “”Barclays Capital weekly report””:https://themreport.com/articles/barclays-new-compensation-rules-threaten-brokers-2011-06-14, which forecasted that new compensation rules pushed by the Federal Reserve in accordance with the Dodd-Frank Act will force independent brokers to close up shop.According to the report, brokers may forego as much as 90 percent of their compensation under the new rules, which ban lenders from paying loan officers revenue derived from yield-spread premiums and dual compensation services. The prohibition would drive brokers “”out of business and into correspondent and retail shops,”” analysts said.Founded in 1997, LenderCity is a Fidelity Mortgage company with 30 partners around the country, including Bank of America, Fifth Third Bank, and Wells Fargo.

first_imgFilmmaker Anurag Kashyap on Thursday announced that he is starting a new company and working on a new film.”New company, new film, new beginnings,” he tweeted on Thursday, without elaborating any further. Notably, Kashyap was one of the founders of the production house Phantom Films along with Vikramaditya Motwane, Madhu Mantena and Vikas Bahl. The banner was dissolved last year after seven years of partnership and some memorable films when Bahl got embroiled in the #MeToo controversy and the involvement of the other partners was put under scanner.Founded in 2011, Phantom Films produced some of the most talked-about films of the last decade, like Queen, Masaan, Lootera and Udta Punjab.New company, New film, New beginnings…— Anurag Kashyap (@anuragkashyap72) June 13, 2019Known for making dark and edgy films like Gangs of Wasseypur, Black Friday, Raman Raghav, Dev D and Gulaal, Kashyap’s last directorial was Manmarziyaan, a romantic film starring Taapsee Pannu, Vicky Kaushal and Abhishek Bachchan.Recently he filed an FIR against a social media user who threatened to rape his daughter over his anti-establishment views. The filmmaker was trolled for drawing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s attention to the nefarious post and asking for help. Responding to it, Kashyap said there should be a law against such toxic trolling, or someone in power should condemn such incidents “in the harshest words” to send across a strong message.(With News18 inputs)Follow @News18Movies for more.
