Rizana Nafeek executed

Politician Ranjan Ramanayake, who was campaigning for her release, told the Colombo Gazette that protests will be held in Colombo against the execution. President Mahinda Rajapaksa had sent an appeal to King Abdullah on January 6, 2013, requesting a stay of the execution until a settlement can be reached between the baby’s family and a Saudi reconciliation committee.Nafeek had been working in Saudi Arabia for two weeks in 2005 when the ‘Utaibi family’s 4-month-old baby died in her care. Nafeek retracted a confession that she said was made under duress, and says that the baby died in a choking accident while drinking from a bottle. Authorities have incarcerated Nafeek in Dawadmi prison since 2005. (Colombo Gazette) Sri Lankan housemaid Rizana Nafeek has been executed in Saudi Arabia, the External Affairs Ministry said.Meanwhile sources in Trincomalee said that the news was to be formally conveyed to the family of Nafeek who are in Muttur. Human Rights Watch (HRW) had said earlier today that Saudi Arabia’s Interior Ministry under Prince Mohammed bin Nayef bin Abdul Aziz had issued instructions for Rizana Nafeek’s execution. read more

Security Council downsizes AUUN mission in Darfur eyeing eventual exit

The decision was unanimous as 15 Council members determined that although the security situation has improved in Darfur, the long-running conflict there remains a threat to international peace and stability.By the terms of the resolution, the Council will cut the troop strength of the UN-AU Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID) from the current 8,735 to 4,050 personnel, while maintain its police strength at the current level of 2,500 personnel.In the resolution, the Council took note of the recommendations in the Special UN-AU report issued earlier this year, with a view towards the mission’s exit on 30 June 2020, drawing down fully by December 2020, provided there is no significant change in the security situation in Darfur.A civil war which broke out in 2003 led to the deaths of tens of thousands of Darfuris and the displacement of nearly two million. In the fighting between Sudanese Government troops and militias and other armed rebel groups, widespread atrocities such as murder and rape of civilians were committed. read more


US gets tough on use of conflict minerals from the DRC

first_imgThe Obama administration is pressing American industries to end the use of so-called ‘conflict minerals’ that are fuelling violence in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo. At a meeting at the US State Department last week, officials met with representatives of electronics, automotive and other companies whose products contain tungsten, tin, tantalum and gold. At the meeting they discussed ways to ensure the companies’ products do not contain minerals illicitly mined in the eastern DRC.“We are working towards the common goal of ending the use of conflict minerals from the DRC,” said Under Secretary of State, Robert Hormats. US officials and rights groups say armed militias in the region are forcing villagers to extract the minerals. They say profits are used to purchase weapons and extend the cycle of violence that has ravaged the region for more than a decade.The meeting last week was part of a larger effort to help manufacturers avoid using conflict minerals.last_img read more


Sister of Paul Kelly officially removed from legal actions against former charity

first_img Source: Sam Boal/Rollingnews.ieTHE LIQUIDATOR OF Console has discontinued legal proceedings against an “innocent bystander” who it is accepted had no involvement with the running of the suicide bereavement charity.The proceedings had been brought against Console’s founder Paul Kelly, his wife Patricia and his sister Joan McKenna following an investigation into the running of the charity.Last June the High Court granted the then interim Console CEO David Hall various orders including one freezing several bank accounts linked to the organisation.Those proceedings were subsequently taken over by Console’s liquidator Tom Murray after the charity was wound up.At the High Court today Martin Hayden SC for the liquidator said that his client was discontinuing proceedings against Joan McKenna. The High Court had previously discontinued freezing orders made against her.In a statement read to the court by Hayden, counsel said the liquidator “acknowledges that Ms McKenna was not involved in the running of Console” and “thanks her for her engagement in the liquidation process”.It has become clear, thanks to the efforts of Ms McKenna, that she had no hand act or part in the control, running or conduct of Console. Feb 7th 2017, 9:09 PM Sister of Paul Kelly officially removed from legal actions against former charity Console The High Court has accepted that Joan McKenna had no involvement in the running of the now wound-up suicide charity. http://jrnl.ie/3228090 14,778 Views No Comments It was also accepted she “never derived any personal financial gain from Console”.The court had previously heard that a Joan Burke McKenna appeared as a director of Console and appeared to have signed company accounts on behalf of the charity.It was accepted by the liquidator that McKenna was never a director of Console nor were the said signatures hers.The liquidator would now work with McKenna to have her name removed from the relevant CRO records, counsel said.McKenna asked that it be noted that she was a supporter of the work done by Console. She waived her entitlement to legal costs and asked that those monies be used as part of the liquidation process.She was aware that counsellors with Console are owed monies for their work. She like many of those vulnerable people affected was “an innocent bystander”, counsel said.McKenna, who thanked her legal team of Michael Hayes solicitor and James Bridgeman Bl, said there was a need for suicide bereavement counselling and asked that support be given to Pieta House.Following the brief application Justice Gilligan agreed to strike out the proceedings against McKenna.Comments are disabled for legal reasonsRead: Man avoids jail for attacking 72-year-old estranged wifeRead: Man found with video showing sexual abuse of five-year-old girl asks judge to spare him jailcenter_img Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article By Aodhan O Faolain Short URL Tuesday 7 Feb 2017, 9:09 PM Share7 Tweet Email2 last_img read more


ABC tells Cretan Anzac story

first_imgThe ABC has commissioned Neos Kosmos journalist Mike Sweet to produce a radio documentary telling the story of how two Anzac soldiers were protected by the Cretan people during WWII. The program will use exclusive research undertaken recently by Sweet in Crete – following the trail of Australian and Kiwi troops who went on the run in June 1941. The documentary will be broadcast as part of Radio National’s newly-created Earshot series.Sweet has been visiting Crete regularly since 2010, carrying out research into a film on Captain Reg Saunders (the first Aboriginal man to be made an officer in the Australian army) and his time on the island in 1941 and 1942.Sweet says the ABC’s interest was driven by the profound nature of the Anzac experience on Crete.“The second Anzacs – a generation after those who fought at Gallipoli – fought in Greece, and as that doomed campaign came to its conclusion, they were looked after with such care and heroism by the Cretan people.“I am making this program to reveal more about that remarkable example of kinship.” Hundreds of Allied troops who evaded capture on the island after the Allied surrender found refuge in the mountains and were protected by villagers who risked their lives for the soldiers.In the past six months Sweet has travelled to Crete twice to carry out research for the production and record interviews.“I go on a journey of discovery, starting in the village of Chora Sfakia, and ending up on one the secret evacuation beaches in the Heraklion province, so it’s quite an odyssey,” he told Neos Kosmos.“I need to thank the many people who’ve assisted me in researching this subject in Crete – the Pancretan Association of Melbourne, GOCMV, the Kytherian Association of Australia and the Nicholas Aroney Trust, as well as the generous support of Aegean Airlines and some key individuals. “Without their help it would have been impossible to realise this production.”The ABC’s Lyn Gallagher – supervising producer on the production – said that what drew her to the story was the generosity of the Cretan people. “Even when their lives were under threat they kept their guests safe. As Mike follows in the footsteps of these two Anzacs, we get a real sense of the danger they faced and how the protection they were offered cost their hosts so dearly. “Mike’s passionate about telling this story and it will be a great show.” The radio program is currently being edited in ABC’s Southbank studios and is set to be broadcast later this year.

(CASC) Jia Baojun shake hands during an agreement signing ceremony at the Elysee Palace in Paris, on March 25, 2019, as part of a state visit. YOAN VALAT/AFP/Getty ImagesAirbus signed a deal worth tens of billions of dollars on Monday to sell 300 aircraft to China, coinciding with a visit to Europe by Chinese President Xi Jinping and matching a China record held by US rival Boeing.The deal between Airbus and China’s state buying agency, China Aviation Supplies Holding Company, which regularly coordinates headline-grabbing deals during diplomatic visits, will include 290 A320-family jets and 10 A350 wide-body jets.French officials said the deal was worth some 30 billion euros at catalogue prices. Planemakers usually grant significant discounts.The larger-than-expected order, which matches an order for 300 Boeing planes when US Donald Trump visited Beijing in 2017, follows a year-long vacuum of purchases in which China failed to place significant orders amid global trade tensions.It also comes as the grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX has left uncertainty over Boeing’s immediate hopes for a major jet order as the result of any warming of US-China trade ties.There was no evidence of any direct connection between the Airbus deal and Sino-US tensions or Boeing fleet problems, but China watchers say Beijing has a history of sending diplomatic signals or playing off suppliers through state aircraft deals. An Airbus A350-1000 conducts a test flight over Chateauroux airport, central France, on February 08, 2019. – Measuring nearly 74 metres from nose-to-tail, the A350-1000 is the longest-fuselage version of Airbus’ all-new family of twin-aisle, widebody jetliners.GUILLAUME SOUVANT/AFP/Getty Images”The conclusion of a big (aviation) contract … is an important step forward and an excellent signal in the current context,” French President Emmanuel Macron said in a joint address with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping.The United States and China are edging towards a possible deal to ease a months-long tariff row and a deal involving as many as 200 to 300 Boeing jets had until recently been expected as part of the possible rapprochement.LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIPChina was also the first to ground the newest version of Boeing’s workhorse 737 model earlier this month following a deadly Ethiopian Airlines crash, touching off a series of regulatory actions worldwide.Asked if negotiations had accelerated as a result of the Boeing grounding or other issues, Airbus planemaking chief and designated chief executive Guillaume Faury told reporters, “This is a long-term relationship with our Chinese partners that evolves over time; it is a strong sign of confidence.” President of Airbus’s commercial aircraft business Guillaume Faury (R) and Chairman of China Aviation Supplies Co. (CASC) Jia Baojun shake hands during an agreement signing ceremony at the Elysee Palace in Paris, on March 25, 2019, as part of a state visit.YOAN VALAT/AFP/Getty ImagesChina has become a key hunting ground for Airbus and its leading rival Boeing, thanks to surging travel demand.But whether Airbus or Boeing is involved, analysts say diplomatic deals frequently contain a mixture of new demand, repeats of older orders and credits against future deals, meaning the immediate impact is not always clear.One industry source said the latest Airbus order included Chinese government confirmation of an unspecified number of orders already counted on Airbus’ books but with the names of customers undisclosed. Airbus could not be reached for comment.The outlook has also been complicated by Beijing’s desire to grow its own industrial champions and, more recently for Boeing, the US-China trade war.French President Macron unexpectedly failed to clinch an Airbus order for 184 planes during a trip to China in early 2018 and the two sides have been working to salvage it.Industry sources have said the year’s delay in Airbus negotiations, as well as a buying freeze during the US tariff row, created latent demand for jets to feed China’s growth.

Health Insurer Donates 100K To Harris County To Fight Zika

Ken Janda, CEO of Community Health Choice, partly addressed that during the press conference held to announce the donation.“We are glad that the federal government is continuing to talk about funding but Judge Emmett has challenged us and the whole community to say: We need to help ourselves in this process, we can’t just wait for other people to do that,” noted Janda.Harris County Judge Ed Emmett said at the press conference the fact Zika can be sexually transmitted is an additional concern.He also noted that if it’s discovered the virus is being transmitted by local mosquitos the state of Texas would provide resources to confront a local outbreak.Some pregnant women who live in Houston say the virus has them worried.Such is the case of Victoria Eljach, who is originally from Colombia and is 30 weeks pregnant with her first child. She says Zika is impacting her life.“I don’t travel, which is something I do a lot. I’m not going to Colombia. I didn’t go to Colombia during this summer. I had a trip to Mexico, to Playa del Carmen, and I had to cancel it as well. I use mosquito repellent all the time, I try to stay inside, indoors,” Eljach explained.The Montgomery County Public Health District reported Thursday its first Zika case, in a pregnant woman who recently traveled to a country with active transmission of the virus.last_img read more


The History Of The Infinity Stones

first_imgStay on target Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. What to Expect From the Marvel Cinematic Universe at SDCC 2019The Cinematic Sex of Marvel’s Netflix Universe center_img Avengers: Infinity War is hitting theaters any minute now, and it’s in many ways the culmination of everything the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been setting up for over a decade. Big purple baddie Thanos is on a tear to get his hands on the mysterious glowing crystals that have served as the McGuffins of multiple Avengers-adjacent films since Captain America: The First Avenger. But what the hell are these “Infinity Stones” anyways? Come with us on a deep dive into continuity as we explore these potent artifacts of Marvel’s cosmic mythology.Glittering BaublesWhen you think about Marvel Comics, one of the things that stands out is the fact that the universe supports both street-level heroes like Daredevil and Spider-Man and more cosmic tales. The master of the second type of story is Jim Starlin, who came to the company in the early 1970s on Iron Man. In just three issues on that book, Starlin introduced one of the company’s most iconic villains – Thanos, the Mad Titan, a powerful immortal obsessed with death.From there, Starlin moved on to titles like Captain Marvel and Warlock. In that second book, the titular character was given a gift by the mysterious High Evolutionary – a green bauble affixed to his forehead called the Soul Gem that gave him a variety of powers. This was the first time we’d see an Infinity Stone, but far from the last.Warlock would end up sucked inside his own Soul Gem after a battle with the evil Magus, but Thanos had his appetite wet by them and shortly assembled all six for the first time. He uses them to power a massive crystal that would extinguish every star in the universe before being stopped by the Avengers and other heroes. The gems were scattered to the winds for over a decade, until Starlin came back to the company and used them to launch a crossover that would change everything.Respect Your EldersFor much of the 1970s and 1980s, the Infinity Stones were in the possession of the Elders of the Universe, a motley crew of immortals who have been knocking around the Marvel cosmos since their races went extinct. Each one has their own thing – the Collector collects, the Gardener gardens, the Grandmaster likes to make people fight – and they used their gems to heighten their innate abilities.The Elders appeared piecemeal in Marvel books throughout the decade, but first came together as part of a plot to murder the planet-devouring Galactus, one of the few entities who could go toe-to-toe with them. Even after being eaten by the big G, the Elders manage to give him a case of “cosmic indigestion” and nearly end his threat to the cosmos.The five Elders who bore Infinity Stones – Champion, Collector, Gardener, Grandmaster, and Runner – were hunted down by Thanos in the pages of Silver Surfer, where he humbled each in turn and assembled the rocks under his command for the first time.The Infinity GauntletThe next time the Stones came together in one place was in 1991 limited series The Infinity Gauntlet, which brought Jim Starlin in to pen a massive crossover in which Thanos would finally get what he wanted. In it, the Mad Titan seizes the six Stones from their holders and mounts them in a shimmering golden glove, gaining the power of a god. He uses it to instantly kill half of the living beings in the universe, but when even that doesn’t win Death’s heart he causes all sorts of chaos before Adam Warlock separates the Gems and allocates them to six different beings called the Infinity Watch.It’s not long before the Gems are brought together again by Warlock’s evil future self Magus. Once he’s thwarted, cosmic entity Eternity decrees that they may never be used in conjunction again, and a variety of other things happen to the magic rocks until they come back to Earth and are taken custody of by the Illuminati, a secret group of heroes including Reed Richards, Charles Xavier and Namor.After the events of Secret Wars, where the Marvel universe was rebooted, the Stones now look a lot closer to their cinematic counterparts, making this a good place to segue into their appearances in other media.Stones On ScreenIn the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Infinity Stones have been doled out slowly. We first see the Tesseract in a post-credits scene in Thor. It has a major role in Captain America: The First Avenger, where the Red Skull uses it to power his high-tech Nazi weaponry. The blue color of this one corresponds to the Space Stone, which makes sense because Loki uses it in The Avengers to open the portal for the Chitauri invasion of Earth.Next up, the yellow Mind Stone appears in a variety of aspects – first in a staff given to Loki that allows him to control the thoughts of mortals, and then used by Ultron to create the Vision. One of the biggest mysteries here is why Thanos would let this one out of his possession and give it to Loki in the first place.Thor: The Dark World saw perhaps the strangest iteration of an Infinity Gem yet – the red Reality Gem is seen as a massive cloud of energy called the Aether that can destroy anything it touches. It’s given to the Collector at the end of that film, which will probably turn out to have been a bad idea.Ronan the Accuser hunts down the Power Stone for Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy, but is prevented from using it to destroy Xandar by Star-Lord, and it’s entrusted to the Nova Corps. I’m sure they’ll do a very good job of keeping it safe.In Doctor Strange, the Master of the Mystic Arts uses the Time Stone to trap Dormammu in a repeating loop until he agrees to piss off back to the Dark Dimension and leave Earth alone. The green gem is hidden away at Kamar-Taj.The only gem we haven’t seen in the MCU is the one that started it all – the Soul Stone, which has now been colored orange. The end of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 saw the Sovereign people building an artificial humanoid in a golden cocoon much like Warlock – and even naming him Adam – so it’s likely he’ll come into the fray wielding it.We’ve also seen the Stones in a few video games, most notably Capcom’s fighters that use them to let combatants access special abilities and buffs. Since their introduction, they’ve become one of Marvel’s go-to artifacts of massive power, next to the Cosmic Cube and the Ultimate Nullifier. With the movie coming out, they’re publishing Infinity Countdown, a mini-series that rustles up some of the line’s biggest heroes and puts them on a quest to stop Hank Pym – now merged with Ultron – from putting the band back together and ruling the universe.last_img read more


Camera able to capture imagery of an optical Mach cone

first_img Most everyone knows that when an object like a jet moves faster than the speed of sound, an acoustic cone is created in its wake that can be heard as a sonic boom. Scientists have theorized that the same type of phenomenon could occur with light, but until now, have not be able to prove it by capturing images of it in action. In this new effort, the researchers have done just that, and have developed an image capturing system capable of taking images of other ultrafast events, as well.To capture imagery of an optical Mach cone, the researchers approached the problem from both sides—by developing a superfast imaging system and by slowing down light.The second part was easy; all they had to do was shine a laser through a medium—in this case, a tunnel with dry ice particles that was placed between plates made of aluminum oxide powder and silicone rubber. The light from the laser subsequently traveled faster as it moved through the tunnel compared to the plates, allowing for the formation of an optical Mach cone.

Single-shot real-time video recording of a photonic Mach cone induced by a scattered light pulse, Science Advances (2017). DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1601814AbstractUltrafast video recording of spatiotemporal light distribution in a scattering medium has a significant impact in biomedicine. Although many simulation tools have been implemented to model light propagation in scattering media, existing experimental instruments still lack sufficient imaging speed to record transient light-scattering events in real time. We report single-shot ultrafast video recording of a light-induced photonic Mach cone propagating in an engineered scattering plate assembly. This dynamic light-scattering event was captured in a single camera exposure by lossless-encoding compressed ultrafast photography at 100 billion frames per second. Our experimental results are in excellent agreement with theoretical predictions by time-resolved Monte Carlo simulation. This technology holds great promise for next-generation biomedical imaging instrumentation.

Wang To capture imagery of the cone, the researchers installed three CCD cameras next to the cone-generating apparatus, one of which was a streak camera (it works by converting photons to electrons and bending the path they take). The streak camera was also fitted with patterned filters that allowed for capturing still 2-D sequences of images, each of which was assigned a code—after a cone was created and imaged, a 3-D image of it was created by combining the 2-D pieces in ways reminiscent of a CT scanner. The other two cameras were used to provide more perspective and to improve resolution.The result of the effort was the first ever video of the cone-shaped wake of light known as a photonic or optical Mach cone. The researchers suggest the same technique could be used to capture imagery of other events such as individual neurons firing—they note it is capable of capturing images at speeds up to 100 billion fps.

Currently there are dozens of teleradiology vendors, ranging from large to small, covering the off-hour needs of hospitals and medical centers nationwide. Teleradiology affords even rural facilities without on-site radiologists the ability to offer 24/7 comprehensive radiology coverage.Filling the GapFor smaller facilities or those that cannot afford trained specialists, subspecialty teleradiology fills the interpretation gap in areas such as musculoskeletal (MSK), neuroradiology, cardiovascular and nuclear imaging.According to a Franklin and Seidelmann Subspecialty Radiology (F&S) 2006 study, 23.4 percent of radiology practice respondents stated that subspecialty coverage is a problem in their practices, reporting that current coverage levels for specialized interpretations are not at “appropriate” levels to support their clinician referrers’ needs.“The shortage of skilled radiologists has lead to a significant shortage of subspecialized or fellowship-trained radiologists,” said Greg Rose, M.D., Ph.D, president and CEO of NightRays. “It is too much to ask one radiologist to be an expert on MSK, neuro, CTA, mammo, peds and nuclear imaging. Now that subspecialization is available by teleradiology, general radiologists can focus on bread and butter radiology and get support from an expert readily online. This eases the already increasing burden of the on-site radiologist and allows subspecialization to reach the patients in remote areas that cannot support a full-time specialist,” he explained.Some vendors are, therefore, leveraging specialty services to remain competitive in the crowded marketplace. For NightRays, subspecialty reading is an integral part of its comprehensive, technology-driven teleradiology solution, while other providers devote its services solely to this specialized niche.F&S is one such provider, boasting the only dedicated subspecialty network comprised of over 30 subspecialist radiologists.When Kemp Laidley, owner of three freestanding imager centers — two in New Mexico and one in Texas — began shopping for a teleradiology provider, he was initially drawn to F&S based on word of mouth and the company’s reputation. But he quickly discovered that the Ohio-based provider offers more than subspecialty expertise. He was equally impressed with their tech support, IT support and marketing support.The three centers outsource between 200 and 300 radiology reads per month in the areas of MSK, neuro and foot and ankle. Laidley says with F&S’ network, there’s never a lapse in coverage. They also do stat reads and are accessible by phone for the referring physicians.Even when approached by other radiology groups, Laidley remained with F&S.“We have not wanted to change [providers] because our referring physicians are so pleased with the service they receive,” he explained. “F&S provides quick turnaround on the reports with thorough and precise interpretations.”Integrated SolutionAmerican Radiology Associates, P.A., Dallas, TX, is also committed to subspecialty interpretation. The large group practice boasts 53 radiologists, including nine dedicated to neuro studies, 10 to breast imaging, six to nuclear medicine/PET and five vascular interventional radiologists. The group relies on AMICAS’ Web-based teleradiology to serve its clients.“We wanted a product that was truly Web-based, not simply Web-enabled. We examined several PACS platforms, but for us, the decision was pretty straightforward,” Craig Cunningham, American Radiology Associate’s managing director and chief operating officer said. “What made the most sense to us both from a PACS administration standpoint and a radiologist standpoint was the Realtime Worklist from AMICAS.”The AMICAS Vision Series PACS is exclusively Web-based and the RealTime Worklist provides a completelycustomizable, personalized paperless patient routing and internal communication system.Many teleradiology service providers do not use PACS, according to Cunningham. Rather, they collect the images in another type of system and fax or email reports back to the customer.“With AMICAS, we can supply the end-user access to not only the images they send us — via the AMICAS PACS platform — but we also imbed the report in the data set. That means that no matter where they are, the client can pull up their patient’s images, see the report and have access to the radiologist who actually reads the report,” he explained.Cunningham strongly believes in the use of technology in deploying subspecialty care, which is why American Radiology Associates purchased a PACS platform. “It requires a lot of planning and capital to get started, but the end result is definitely worthwhile,” he said.Proceed with CautionThe continued growth of electronic technologies that allow for global image transfer has created both opportunities and risks for radiologists and can have a significant impact on patient care, cautioned RSNA 2007 opening session presenter, James P. Borgstede, M.D.“My challenge to radiologists is to advance the specialty, rather than allow it to become a commodity and radiologists become employees of a regional, national or multinational business,” Dr. Borgstede said.Although the American College of Radiology requires that teleradiologists be licensed in the states in which the patient is receiving care, there is no national teleradiology association governing teleradiology. That leaves a wide margin for interpretation among service providers.“Those who believe all or most radiologists and teleradiology services produce the same product with the only differentiator being price and choose their service based on this approach indeed commoditize radiology,” said Dr. Rose. Companies that provide as little substance as possible to generate the highest margins possible are prime examples. However, Dr. Rose points out, clients who differentiate radiology services based on the quality and breadth of their offerings, such as accuracy and completeness of reports, standards of care, clinician interaction, research and development and respect for the on-site radiologist do not commoditize the specialty because they do not simply distinguish services based on price alone.New Reading ParadigmTeleradiology is more than just reading an image and creating a report in a cost-efficient manner. To build value in teleradiology, it should enable clients to improve referring physician satisfaction, increase referrals, increase revenue and enhance patient care, while optimizing radiologist staffing costs through service and accountability to the patient, the clinician and the on-site radiologist.Essentially, teleradiology has been based on preliminary read services. With these reads, the teleradiologist does not do a full read but turns the report around in a very short period of time, in some instances in less than 30 minutes. While there is tremendous value to a quick turnaround on a read, what threatens to commoditize teleradiology is outsourcing prereads to non-board certified radiologists, who may be less skilled than the U.S.-based radiologists, yet will do the read at a cheaper rate.A new spin on read services, a consult preread, could either raise the bar on the quality of teleradiology or could stir up more competition. When Merge Healthcare launched its consult preread service at the last RSNA, they changed the outsourcing game once again. Although the concept may seem similar to the preliminary read – radiologists based in India does the read to help U.S. radiologists prepare their official, final diagnostic reports, the consult preread goes further, by performing a double read on each exam and generating a more robust report for the U.S. radiologist. The consult preread is designed to expedite the final read, not replace.Merge describes the consult preread process in the following steps: a study is transmitted to the offshore reading center via Merge’s TeleRead solution; each study is then reviewed independently by two experienced radiologists who are trained to detect not only relevant pathology but also abnormal findings and pathology in anatomy adjacent to the regions of interest; the finished consult preread report and key images appear in the designated U.S.-based radiologist’s RIS or RIS/PACS-based work queue within minutes of completion of the consult preread; and the U.S.-licensed radiologist at the customer site then performs a complete, official final read and issues a signed report to the referring physician.The difference here is a consult preread is the product of two separate reads sequentially processed by two different offshore radiologists, thus producing a single findings report. The report includes references to prior studies, relevant patient clinical information, extensive measurements of relevant and nonrelevant pathology and associated key images, however, the U.S.-based physician uses the consult preread report only as a foundation for creating a final read report. He or she may sign off on the preread as-is or may make revisions, then sign off.In terms of quality, Merge emphasizes that upon completion of the final read by the U.S. radiologist, the medical imaging study has been triple-read before the U.S. radiologist sends it along to the referring physician.Once again in teleradiology, the use of offshore radiologists creates new opportunities and risks for radiologists, which, as Dr. Borgstede warns, could commoditize the expertise of radiologists if not used with caution.

except to call the bail request “excessive” for a 22-year-old with little criminal historyBaker’s criminal record is limited to minor convictions for underage consumption and possession of stolen property If convicted the murder charge carries a statutory maximum of 40 years in prisonAt Haywood’s hearing the judge rejected the prosecution’s request to set bail in the amount of $250000In requesting the higher figure Wanta pointed to Haywood’s criminal history — which includes a financial transaction card fraud conviction in Minnesota in addition to battery and firearms convictions in Illinois — as well as his alleged role in the aftermath of the crime“My belief is that anyone who is willing to help people out in any way after knowing that they just killed someone is just as much of a danger to the public as someone who actually pulled the trigger” Wanta argued to the judgePublic defender Rebecca Shaw however noted that the aiding charge against Haywood has the lowest severity level for a felony charge — carrying only three years in prison — and said he would likely receive a probationary sentence if convictedShaw said Haywood has lived in Duluth for seven years is working and has a girlfriend and two childrenShe argued that he was not a flight risk and said he could be released on his own recognizance or with a referral to pretrial supervised release At most she argued bail should not be higher than $15000Munger agreed with Shaw in finding the state’s request to be excessive noting that he is only charged with making the hotel arrangements to help his co-defendants elude capture“I’m troubled by the line in the complaint that he somehow played a part in the conspiracy or the planning of the robbery” the judge said “But that’s not what he’s charged with … He’s not
