County schools teachers reach critical week

first_imgIt’s been a summer of debate between area school districts and their teacher unions. This week, those debates will turn to actions.Nearly every teachers union in Clark County has voted to strike unless pay raises are enacted by the opening day of school, most of which fall on either Tuesday or Wednesday.Unions and school districts across Washington are negotiating new salary schedules for teachers after the Legislature addressed the 2012 McCleary decision. Last year, the Legislature approved $7.3 billion in allocations to schools over four years, and this year added another nearly $1 billion for teacher salaries, meeting the Supreme Court’s order to fully fund basic education.In Southwest Washington, teachers are fighting for double-digit raises they say are long overdue. Districts are pushing back, saying they can’t afford to sustain pay scales at the level teachers want due to the state’s formula for funding schools.Unless the impasse is resolved, as many as 80,000 students in kindergarten through the 12th grade will take an extended summer vacation.So far, only Woodland schools have reached a contract with the teachers union.With the exception of La Center, where both sides have kept negotiations under wraps, here’s the latest on contract negotiations in Clark County districts:Evergreen Public SchoolsNegotiations between Clark County’s largest school district and the union will continue with the assistance of a state-appointed mediator.last_img read more

ASA Underscores Importance of US Trade with China

first_imgThe American Soybean Association (ASA) reiterated its significant concern with the Administration’s decision yesterday to move forward and apply a 25 percent tariff on nearly $50 billion in goods imported from China.The looming threat of tariffs creates uncertainty in the marketplace and for soy growers, whose livelihoods rely on the ability to export their crops and products to China.“This is real money to a soybean farmer trying to determine when to sell their crop,” said ASA President and Iowa farmer John Heisdorffer. “Farm income is projected to be the lowest in more than five years and farmers cannot afford to have the bottom fall out now.”ASA continues to ask the Administration to work with soybean farmers to find ways to reduce our trade deficit by increasing competitiveness rather than erecting barriers to foreign markets, and is confident in this week’s negotiations.“We are very pleased to have USDA send some of their best negotiators in agriculture to this week’s meeting with officials in China,” Heisdorffer added. “Soybeans lead the way for agricultural trade with China, accounting for nearly $14 billion in exports to China annually. As we have called for months, we believe soybeans can be part of the solution and we’re hopeful to be a part of the conversation this week.”last_img read more

News Notes From WCTV WCTV Executive Director Shaun Neville Answers YOUR Questions

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — This week is the second part of my answers to questions and comments from our community survey conducted last spring. We had well over a hundred responses and a lot of inquiries about WCTV that can be answered in this format.But before we get going, a reminder: Our Podcast Meet-Up will be held at the studio on Wednesday, August 28th at 7PM. It’s for both beginners and advanced users. Learn how the studio is set up and get tips from other local podcasters about how they produce their programs. WCTV has a LOT of great podcasts right now. To learn more and to RSVP, contact Lisa Kapala at lisa@wctv.org.…Comment: I was excited that my in-laws were able to recently watch the band concert and they live in Arlington.Perhaps the biggest change in community media (and media in general) over the past 10 years is how available everything now is.  For so long, you had to be a cable subscriber in Wilmington to watch Wilmington programs. Now, there are LOTS of options for viewers who don’t have cable, are away from the TV or want to watch in another location.Our website, wctv.org/live, maintains a stream of our channels 24/7.  We also stream through the WCTV Mobile App, available for Apple and Android devices. If you download the app, you’ll get a mobile alert whenever we have a live program, including meetings, community events, sports and more!We’ve also recently launched a channel on Roku. If you have a Roku device, just add the WCTV Streaming Channel.  You’ll not only get our live feed, but can also watch videos-on-demand.  And if you want to watch through and Amazon Firestick, we’ve set up a special link so that you can watch our live stream fullscreen. Go to your internet browser and open tiny.cc/wctvlive.We love hearing stories of how people watch WCTV outside of town!Comment: Please add library events.To be fair, we do quite a few. But I know what you’re saying. The library has a lot of great programs for kids and adults. Looking at the calendar, there are often 1-2 events per week that we find interesting.But there is a staffing element to this. We don’t have someone dedicated to just getting events around town. And even if we did, there are also great events at the Senior Center, Silver Lake and elsewhere that would also warrant coverage.  We do our best to get a balance of events around town that appeal to all parts of our Wilmington audience.Here’s where you can pitch in: Anyone in Wilmington can become a WCTV member, check out a camera, and record an event around town. You’d be surprised how easy it is to learn about the gear. If you love what the library does and want to share what they do with the community, let us know and we’ll get you signed up and trained! Contact Lisa Kapala at lisa@wctv.org to learn more.Comment: Wish I could schedule programming on my cable box to record.You can!  But it’s a little more complicated than recording your favorite primetime shows.We’ve heard from a number of viewers who will manually set up record times on Comcast 9 or Verizon 37.  Most DVRs will allow you to record the same time period each week and then auto-delete the older blocks of time.Want to record the Selectmen?  Set your recording for Mondays from 7P-11P.  School Committee is Wednesday from 7P-11P.We’ve also created some special program blocks that you can record each week and get the latest content that falls into specific categories.  Wildcat TV (sports, concerts, WHS events) airs each Friday and Sunday from 7-11P. Community events and interviews are Tuesday and Saturday from 7-11P.Comment: I keep waiting for the Class of 1995 Graduation, Promenade and other events. You seem to have others from that era.We’ve looked. Unfortunately, at some point in the past 26 years, something appears to have happened to a box of VHS tapes labeled “1995”.  We literally still have hundreds of VHS tapes to digitize as part of our archiving project, but so far, no sign of these 1995 videos. We’ll keep our eyes peeled.There are now nearly 1,300 videos on our WCTV Archive page dedicated to content from Wilmington’s history dating back to 1986. You can find a link on our home page, wctv.org.  And each week, we profile a new video as part of our Throwback Thursday segment. Old programs air each Thursday from 12-3P and then from 7-10P.(NOTE: The above announcement was submitted by WCTV Executive Director Shaun Neville.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Lacking snow a short ceremonial start to Iditarod 44

first_imgJason Campeau’s team getting ready to head to the starting line of 4th Avenue in Anchorage. Photo: Zachariah Hughes, APMThe 44th Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race kicked off with the ceremonial start to the race in downtown Anchorage Saturday.At 85 mushers, it’s one of the largest fields the race has ever seen.This year, race officials had to shorten the traditional 11 mile course to just three miles out of safety concerns stemming from a lack of snow within town. The Alaska Railroad donated the freighting costs to move more than 300 cubic yards of snow from Fairbanks to the streets of Anchorage.The Municipality of Anchorage also strategically stockpiles snow throughout winter to aid in Iditarod efforts every March.On Friday night, with street closures throughout the truncated trail, dump trucks unloaded large mounds along the route towards Mulcahy stadium.Snow conditions along the festive streets Saturday morning were decent, with temperatures hovering in the 20s keeping the slush at bay.The official restart is in Willow on Sunday, with the first musher scheduled to leave at 2 p.m.[unitegallery iditarod]last_img read more

180 killed in new Med migrant boat disaster

first_imgAround 180 people are presumed to have died in the first major migrant boat disaster of 2017 in the Mediterranean, officials said Tuesday after interviewing a handful of survivors.Humanitarian workers from the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the UN refugee agency (UNHCR), recounted harrowing details of a capsize that occurred on Saturday in waters off Libya after talking to four rescued passengers, two Eritreans and two Ethiopians.The survivors, three men and one woman, arrived on Monday evening in the Sicilian port of Trapani, in a “traumatised and exhausted” state, aid workers said.They said their two-tier, wooden boat had left Libya on Friday with more than 180 people packed on board, all of them originally from East Africa.After five hours at sea, the engine cut out and the boat started to take on water. As it slowly sank, more and more of the people on board were submerged under water.One of the survivors described his desperate effort to find his wife, who had taken a spot in the centre of the ship along with around 70 other women. A number of children were also on board and none of them survived.After hours in the water, the four survivors were rescued on Saturday 30 nautical miles from the Libyan coast by a French boat operating as part of the European borders agency Frontex’s Operation Triton before being transferred to another Frontex ship, the Siem Pilot.Siem Pilot, provided by the Norwegian coastguard, arrived in Trapani on Monday evening with the four survivors, four recovered corpses and 34 people rescued from another stricken migrant boat.The latest deaths and rescues follow a record year for the number of migrants trying to reach Europe on the western Mediterranean route from north Africa to Italy.Some 181,000 people were registered at Italian ports in 2016 while the UNHCR recorded more than 5,000 deaths and presumed deaths on all migrant routes across the Mediterranean.Despite the mid-winter weather making crossings particularly perilous, the start of 2017 has brought no sign of departures slowing with some 2,300 migrants already registered in Italy since January 1. A total of 226 people have died, according to a UN count covering the entire Mediterranean.last_img read more

New Hospital Tower Underway At Baylor St Lukes Medical Center

first_imgListen Carrie FeibelFather Michael Barrosa, chaplain at Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center, sprinkles holy water on the site of the future hospital towerExecutives at CHI St. Luke’s Health broke ground Tuesday on a new hospital tower for its McNair campus, off Old Spanish Trail. The celebration comes almost three years after Catholic Health Initiatives in Colorado acquired the St. Luke’s hospital chain here in Houston.But it wasn’t until a few months ago that CHI confirmed that St. Luke’s will exit its historic tower in the medical center and move farther south. The new campus is across Cambridge from the DeBakey VA Medical Center. “We are building a new hospital, this is it, that’s where it’s going to be,” said Wayne Keathley, president of the new hospital, now called Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center. He later grabbed a silver shovel and posed beside a symbolic pile of dirt, joined by other executives from St. Luke’s and Baylor College of Medicine.Carrie Feibel(From left): Father Michael Barrosa, Congressman Al Green, Dr. Paul Klotman, Dr. C. Kent Osborne and Scotty Arnoldy, chairman of the executive building committee.The complex will house three affiliated healthcare brands — CHI St. Luke’s, the Texas Heart Institute, and Baylor College of Medicine, which employs more than 3,000 doctors and researchers throughout the medical center.Baylor’s president, Dr. Paul Klotman, said his institution will benefit from the increased visibility.“One of our problems at Baylor is people ask me ‘Where do you guys actually practice?’” Klotman said. “It turns out we see about half the patients in the medical center.”Baylor doctors practice and teach at Texas Children’s Hospital, Ben Taub Hospital, the VA, the Menninger Clinic, and in several outpatient office buildings around the medical center.But Klotman says that until now, the Baylor name wasn’t featured prominently on any of those major buildings. The new complex is jointly governed by Baylor and CHI St. Luke’s.“Buildings do play an important role, they’re iconic. They’re places that catch your eye, and you go ‘Oh, that’s where they are,’” Klotman explained.  The entire campus will be finished in 2019, at an estimated cost of $1.1 billion. 00:00 /01:37 X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Sharelast_img read more

The Sensitive Sigma Paddle enables personalized compression for better quality mammograms without unnecessary discomfort for patients.Each year, an estimated 125 million women throughout the world are imaged using mammography. To get the best image quality during a mammogram with the least amount of radiation, the breast needs to be flattened. This is done by compressing the breast. Under-compression can lead to blurred images, more retakes and a higher average glandular dose (AGD), while over-compression causes discomfort and unnecessary pain for the patient. British research estimates that up to 20 percent of screening-eligible women worldwide decide not to have a mammogram because of the pain. This can decrease the rate of early detection, and delay medical treatment of tumors, thus decreasing women’s chances of survival.The patented Sensitive Sigma Paddle has multiple sensors that measure each breast to optimize compression for each breast. Based on breast size and tissue stiffness, the device calculates the pressure to achieve an optimal compression of 75mmHg and allows for a highly reproducible procedure. Sigmascreening said the Sensitive Sigma Paddle is the first pressure-based compression paddle in the market which provides this pressure information real-time.Investigational in the United States, the device is CE-marked and is actively being used at breast screening centers and hospitals in England, Germany, Sweden, The Netherlands, Belgium and Switzerland since receiving CE-mark last year.The relationship between pressure applied during compression of the breast and screening performance was recently investigated in the study “Performance of breast screening and cancer detection depends on mammography compression,” which was presented at the 13th International Workshop of Mammographic Imaging in Malmö, June 2016, and published in Breast Imaging. Researchers computed the compression pressure applied to a series of 113,464 screening mammograms. Screening performance measures were determined for each group. Results demonstrated that compression pressures that are too low lead to a higher recall rate and false positives, and compression pressures that are too high reduce detectability of breast cancer. Cancer detection rate and the positive predictive value were optimal in the middle compression category.For more information: www.sigmascreening.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Feature | Artificial Intelligence | July 19, 2019 | Michal Chorev AI Models Predict Breast Cancer With Radiologist-level Accuracy Breast cancer is the global leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women, and the most commonly diagnosed cancer… read more read more Qlarity Imaging’s software is used to assist radiologists in the assessment and characterization of breast lesions.

Google cloud and GOJEKs announce Feast a new and open source feature

first_imgGoogle Cloud announced the release of Feast, a new open source feature store that helps organizations to better manage, store, and discover new features for their machine learning projects, last week. Feast, a collaboration project between Google Cloud and GO-JEK (an Indonesian tech startup) is an open, extensible, and a unified platform for feature storage. “Feast is an essential component in building end-to-end machine learning systems at GO-JEK. We’re very excited to release it to the open source community,” says Peter Richens, Senior Data Scientist at GO-JEK. It has been developed with an aim to find solutions for common challenges faced by Machine Learning Development teams. Some of these common challenges include: Machine Learning features not being reused (features representing similar business concepts get redeveloped many times when existing work from other teams could have been reused). Feature definitions vary (teams define features differently and many times there is no easy access to the documentation of a feature). Hard to serve up-to-date features (teams are hesitant in using real-time data). Inconsistency between training and serving (training requires historical data, whereas prediction models require the latest values. When data is broken down into various independent systems, it leads to inconsistencies as the systems then require separate tooling). Feast gets rid of these challenges by providing teams with a centralized platform that allows teams to easily reuse the features developed by another team across different projects. Also, as you add more features to the store, it becomes cheaper to build models Feast Apart from that, Feast manages the ingestion of data by unifying it from both batch and streaming sources (using Apache Beam) into the feature warehouse and feature serving stores. Users can then query features in the warehouse using the same set of feature identifiers. It also allows easy access to historical feature data for its users, which in turn, can be used to produce datasets for training models. Moreover,  Feast allows teams to capture documentation, metadata and metrics about features, allowing teams to communicate clearly about these features. Feast aims to be deployable on Kubeflow in the future and would get integrated seamlessly with other Kubeflow components such as a Python SDK for use with Kubeflow’s Jupyter notebooks, and Kubeflow Pipelines. This is because Kubeflow focuses on improving packaging, training, serving, orchestration, and evaluation of models. “We hope that Feast can act as a bridge between your data engineering and machine learning teams”, says the Feast team.

JOHN’S, N.L. – Walking around St. John’s, Mark Critch treats the city as if it’s a tale to tell.The comedian, actor — and, as of this week, published memoirist — points out downtown buildings, telling their stories with the wide eyes and opinionated eyebrows so familiar from “This Hour Has 22 Minutes.”He rattles off the family history of one second-floor office’s tenants, spinning tales of helicopter rescues and near-drownings. He points out Victoria Park, which dates back to 1890 and where he’s working on revitalization efforts. He notes a subdivision has cropped up in the place where his isolated childhood home stood.He loves this little old historic city — and it seems to love him back.On Water Street, the curvy main drag filled with boutiques and eateries, a man in a baseball cap and sunglasses leans out of the passenger window of a grey pickup truck.“How are you today, Mr. Critch?”They banter back and forth, shouting small talk about their work schedules and evening plans; turns out Critch’s loud friend is heading down to the pub later.“Don’t work too hard!” Critch calls out, the man waving and driving off.When asked if they know each other, he shrugs. It’s nothing out of the ordinary.“That happens a few times a day.”While some of the province’s expats who spend their days in larger urban centres like Toronto, Critch has never felt the pull to permanently relocate. He lives in St. John’s for most of the year, when he’s not in Halifax filming 22 Minutes, CBC’s satirical news show.His first book, “Son of a Critch,” documents his earliest memories here — from almost drowning on the beach to graduating from school and pursuing an acting career.He is recognized across the country, but at home in St. John’s, it’s hard to tell if someone recognizes him from TV, if they’re “mom’s cousin” or if they’re just chatty Newfoundlanders.He can’t think of a bad encounter — but after a pause, he delves into a favourite “weird” recurring public interaction.“I wear glasses and oftentimes a ball cap. People will come up to you if you’re in the supermarket and go, ‘Oh, incognito today, are ya.’ I say what, what do you mean? ‘You’re incognito today, I won’t say anything.’ What? I’m nearsighted. They go ‘Ah, don’t worry,’” Critch mimics a knowing wink.“I go OK, first of all, nobody here has expressed any interest in me, clearly it’s not an issue. But the word ‘incognito,’ which I would never use … I hear the word ‘incognito’ so much.”Critch seems to delight in these weird quirks in human nature, a trait that serves him well in supermarket encounters and in interviews with politicians. He credits much of that outlook on life to his upbringing in a small house on the highway leading out of St. John’s.He recalls sitting at the kitchen table listening to the stories that were like “soap operas” to him, adults gossiping about larger-than-life politicians Critch compares to “wrestlers” in the province.“People talking about politics in Newfoundland is more interesting than people talking about love affairs in Newfoundland,” says Critch.“That is a gift they gave — and no matter what’s going on, to see the humour in it. I think that’s a Newfoundland trait as well, but it’s definitely something I got from my parents.”His childhood interest in the political ring prepared him for life covering the Ottawa crowd — as did growing up with a broadcaster father, the late Mike Critch of VOCM radio (for Voice of the Common Man), a dominant force in the province.He remembers his father would cut out newspaper stories and file them away. When he started working on 22 Minutes, Critch instinctively started doing the same thing, saving clips as fodder for future segments.“I realized one day, oh my God, I’m doing exactly what dad does, but instead of writing a news article I’m writing a sketch.”Years spent closely observing the people he covers have given him a unique perspective on his work, on understanding people’s intentions and figuring out how they tick — like watching Justin Trudeau go from Pierre’s son hanging around Liberal conventions to becoming prime minister himself.“You see the arcs and see them come and go … you do get to know them,” Critch says fondly, arching those eyebrows again. “Almost like pets in a way.”Critch spends a solid chunk of his time working on local projects “to make the place a little bit better,” like Victoria Park. He’d like to do more educational initiatives, like a documentary he hosted for the anniversary of the battle of Beaumont-Hamel a few years ago.The province is a great place to find support for those projects, where there’s an “economy of talent and kindness that’s a great bank to draw upon,” he says.Critch spends his afternoons with his two sons, or he’ll head over for a few hours to a Duckworth Street pub to catch up on the political gab of the day. Aside from the regular friendly and sometimes bizarre greetings, Critch says staying “incognito” is no problem in a town where he’s part of the city’s arc himself.“It’s like you’re the Cabot Tower or something. People don’t really care.” Mark Critch poses for a portrait on the south side of the harbour in St. John’s on Thursday, August 16, 2018.

many young viewers know the M*A*S*H finale set ratings records but how many have seen it) Will & Grace is not on streaming services it was a bit too sophisticated to appeal to millennial viewers in the way Friends did when it first aired and (more than most shows from its era) its style of humor has come to feel wildly outdated That this sensibility was put to work on an apparently pro-Hillary Clinton mini-episode feels less like a gift to Clinton than one more thing for the candidate to have to bear On the new episode Will and Grace discuss their shared antipathy for Donald Trump before being greeted by wealthy socialite Karen who is (naturally) a Trump supporter The three then debate which candidate Jack should support But the plot comes second to trading barbs as when Karen refers to Will as Grace’s “pussy gay Muslim boyfriend” There’s also the requisite mocking of Karen’s Hispanic maid whom Grace defends: “The closest person in your life Rosario is a Mexican-American and the things that Donald Trump has said about the Mexican people is so offensive” Informed that Rosario is in fact Salvadoran Grace remarks “What’s the difference” Only smiling because of where Eric’s hand is @EricMcCormack @SeanHayes @MeganOMullally pictwittercom/Sc9kDYgLcN Debra Messing (@DebraMessing) September 25 2016 The joke that underpinned Will & Grace is that Will and Grace were both toxic narcissists as prejudiced and venal as their id-governed pals Jack and Karen but better at hiding it to fit into polite society Yes they were best friends but who else would have them The show was at its best when focused on their own flaws and at its absolute worst when it tried to create Friends-style drama over babies and affairs (Its apparent belief that because it had two gay men in its four-member ensemble it got a pass on rude racial humor encompasses the whole run of the show and was unfortunate) We don’t actually care who Will and Grace are voting for or what their political beliefs are but they’re incongruous with a true pro-democracy message Will referring to undecided voters in Pennsylvania en masse as “the unemployed uneducated angry white man” is a strange get-out-the-vote tactic if that’s even what this special was trying to do Worse these twisty beliefs stand in the way of the jokes But it’s hard to deny too that the style of say-everything racial and sexual humor the show gleefully took part in feels out-of-touch todayto say nothing of the fact that the writing has in terms of pure quality lost a step (“Gay Muslim boyfriend” That’s the best Karen had in her arsenal) The show’s four stars carried the material admirably as they’d done through the show’s weaker seasons But this muddled bummer of a reunion made a good case as to why Will & Grace has faded so rapidly from a conversation in which its contemporaries are still endlessly discussed Chemistry of the sort they had fades a bit from memory as time goes by; it’s ephemeral It’s writing that burns itself onto the mind from the ingenious plotting of a Seinfeld episode to the better-drawn-than-you-remember character types on Friends to Carrie Bradshaw’s puns On the Will & Grace reunion the characters bicker as they always did but none lands a knockout blow or even a memorable line that’s not connected to an anti-Hispanic racial slur (those ones are memorable for the wrong reasons) It was indeed a pitch-perfect recreation but it showed why Will & Grace for all it did in allowing people to understand and relate to gay people is remembered less as a show than as a moment Contact us at editors@timecomco/gxXSdACQ1X- Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) April 11, He also was sentenced to 90 months in prison with 359 days of credit for time served, was knocked off of his surfboard at the beginning of his heat when he realized a shark was attacking.
