Demonstrators see glimmer of hope after Liberals vow to replace pay system

first_imgOTTAWA – Civil service unions vowed Wednesday to hold the Trudeau government’s feet to the fire after the Liberals pledged in their latest budget to replace the troubled Phoenix pay system with a “next-generation” compensation system that works.Federal employees rallied in at least a dozen cities across the country to mark the second anniversary of the disastrous launch of Phoenix.Finance Minister Bill Morneau introduced a federal budget that included plans to spend $16 million over two years exploring options for building a new pay system while eventually scrapping the IBM-built Phoenix program.The system is clearly not delivering as it was supposed to, Morneau said Wednesday in a post-budget event at the Economic Club of Ottawa.“What we’ve said over the long term is that we need to find a new approach — a new approach that works.”While many workers said they were encouraged that the pay system will be replaced, their unions were determined not to let their guard down until the government delivers on its pledge.“I see this as a glimmer of hope in a long two years of constant stress and financial worry for our members,” said Debi Daviau, president of the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada, at a rally in Ottawa.“We need a pay system that works, and we have the people to build it,” Daviau said, pointing to the government’s benefit distribution system, the NetFile tax filing system and border control systems as prime examples of what her members can do.“These are the same professionals who designed and built virtually every important computer system that the government relies on.”The Phoenix pay system has been a nightmare for tens of thousands of civil servants since it was formally launched two years ago.Fixing the problem, which has left many government employees underpaid, overpaid or not paid at all, is expected to cost upwards of at least $1 billion, with estimates that the final tally could go much higher.Tuesday’s federal budget also provided indications that it could take more than two years to develop, test and ultimately launch a new pay system.The Public Service Alliance of Canada, which organized the rallies, said it’s still concerned that the Trudeau government didn’t provide an exemption to ensure that employees who were overpaid don’t have to return the gross total of those overpayments.PSAC said its members complied with government instructions to report overpayments by mid-January or risk having to pay back more money than was deposited into their bank accounts. But thousands of civil servants could still be forced to pay back the gross overpayment amounts because of the government’s inability to process their reports, the union said.Too little, too late. That’s what I think about the budget,” said PSAC president Robyn Benson.The government has agreed to consider changing tax laws for the 2018 tax year to allow public servants who were overpaid to repay the net amount, rather than the gross amount.The budget allocates an additional $431 million over six years to address problems created by Phoenix, plus the $16 million to begin the process of finding a replacement, on top of the $460 million already committed to both implement the pay system and resolve subsequent problems.And the Canada Revenue Agency will get $5.5 million to conduct income tax reassessments for individuals affected by Phoenix.But the costs are likely to escalate under a government pledge to also work with the unions on compensating employees for mental and emotional stress caused by the Phoenix foulups.The opposition New Democrats had introduced a motion calling on the government to both compensate and apologize to civil servants, but that motion was defeated Wednesday in the Commons by a margin of 159-135.When it was approved in 2015 by the previous Conservative government, officials said the Phoenix pay system would save taxpayers about $70 million annually by streamlining and consolidating pay systems across dozens of departments and agencies.— Follow @tpedwell on Twitterlast_img read more

‘Black’ Wins 13th Agadir’s Festival of Cinema and Migration

By Soumaya El FilaliRabat – The film “Black” received not one but two main prizes at the International Festival of Cinema and Migration in Agadir.The 90 mins long feature, which is a creation of the two Moroccan born Belgian directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, won the first prize for the 13thAgadir’s international festival of cinema and migration. The movie also received the prize for best female performance given to its lead actress Martha Canga Antonia. The movie tells the story of two young teenagers, who belong to two different rival gangs. Mavela, 15, a member of the Black Brox, who falls desperately in love with the young and charismatic Marwan from the 1080 gang. The two young couple find themselves in an inevitable and dangerous situation, in which they are forced to choose between loyalty and love.The movie premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival and sold 14,000 tickets on its first day, which was beyond the directors’ expectations.“We were expecting a turnout of 3,000 people, the numbers turned out to be a lot more than we expected and we are more than happy,” director Adil EL Arbi said in an interview after the movie release, back in 2015.Many other awards were also distributed on the last day of the international festival.The jury for long features awarded French filmmaker Fabianny Descamps with Best Director Award for her film “Isola” while French director and scriptwriter Philippe Faucon was awarded Best Script Award for his screenplay “Fatima”.Aziz Dades and Avishay Benazra both received the Award for Best Male Role for their performance in “The Midnight Orchestra”. On the other hand, the first prize for the short film competition went to Belgian director Barney Frydman for his film “The Seed”.The five-day long festival ended with heartwarming moments shared between national and international artists, as well as the audience and fans. The festival’s focus this year on the Ivorian cinematography is expected to prompt the beginning of many collaborated cinematic work between the two countries. read more

Budgie house RSPCA finds 359 uncaged birds flying around home after owner

first_imgRSPCA officers found nearly 400 budgies in one small houseCredit:RSPCA She said: “It took three officers a total of three days to catch them all and get them into boxes and sent to various aviaries.”When they got there, the budgies were all over the place, in almost every room using anything they could to stand on, including a clothing horse.”Most people like to keep budgies in groups but we have never seen this many in one place. It was crazy.”The birds were signed over to the RSPCA by their owner who is no longer able to take care for them. It is not known why the owner was taken to hospital.The charity must now find all the birds new homes and officers are appealing to anyone with aviaries who would like to home one of the blue, green, yellow or white birds. Amy Ockelford, also from RSPCA, said it took three days for three officers to catch every last one of the birds, also known as common parakeets, from the house in Brighton, East Sussex. “We’d like the budgies to go to new aviary homes where they can live with other budgies and have lots of space to fly and explore.”Anyone who is interested in offering one of these birds a new home should visit the RSPCA’s website: www.rspca.org.uk/findapet or contact the individual centres. When you entered the property there was a sea of yellow, green, blue and white, with birds perched everywhere.The noise from their tweeting and chirping was deafening.RSPCA inspector Liz Wheeler Officers from the RSPCA spent three days rescuing 359 uncaged budgies from a small house after the homeowner was taken to hospital.The animal welfare charity is desperately trying to find new owners for the colourful birds, having been “inundated” by the huge number of them.The charity was called in to help after the owner of the budgerigars fell ill and was taken to hospital.Three RSPCA officers turned up to the property expecting to find 200 hundred of them but were in fact greeted by 359 noisy and uncaged birds, free-flying around the small semi-detached house.When they arrived, they were met with “a sea of yellow, green, blue and white, with birds perched everywhere”.RSPCA inspector Liz Wheeler said: “We were expecting to find around 200 budgies but ended up removing 359.”They were flying free around the semi-detached home so we had to use capture nets to safely catch them and remove them.”When you entered the property there was a sea of yellow, green, blue and white, with birds perched everywhere.”The noise from their tweeting and chirping was deafening.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Kodak is Making Its Own Cryptocurrency For Some Reason

first_imgStay on target Photos: Animals Rescued From Illegal Trafficking in ColombiaEagle Steals Rabbit From Fox in Mid-Air Battle I can already feel it in my bones that cryptocurrency is going to lead to another economic collapse soon. Real innocent working-class people are going to lose their homes and livelihoods because sociopathic finance nerds can’t stop playing with Bitcoin. But until that happens it has been pretty fun to watch more and more entities hurl themselves at this virtual gold rush. The latest company to start making up its own funny money? Kodak, you know, the photography people.Kodak’s inexplicable new cryptocurrency is called KODAKCoin, maybe because “KODAKKoin” has a dangerous number of “Ks.” You can pay $3,400 for a two-year license for a Kodak KashMiner in a server farm and reap the benefits without lifting a finger (except for splitting the profits). We kid but this actually sounds cooler and more useful than you may imagine. Kodak announced the currency at CES 2018 alongside the KODAKOne image rights management platform. And how they work together is pretty nifty.Here’s a photo of Kodak’s magic money making machine. pic.twitter.com/wjWeJqMUBF— Chris Hoffman (@chrisbhoffman) January 9, 2018Using blockchain tech, photographers can use these services to encrypt, license out, and get paid for their original work all through the Kodak platform. Image theft is dangerously easy and rampant online, so kudos to Kodak for helping artists get the compensation they deserve. The service even crawls through the internet tracking down photos that may have violated your copyrights. Finally we can get some cash for our stolen nudes. Investors are so happy Kodak’s stock is already on the rise. Got so much gold call them Kodak Yellow.“Kodak has always sought to democratize photography and make licensing fair to artists,” said Kodak CEO Jeff Clarke in a statement. Kodak developed the tools in partnership with WENN Digital. “These technologies give the photography community an innovative and easy way to do just that.”KODAKCoin and the KODAKOne platform officially launch with an initial coin offering at the end of this month. Hopefully this is good news for photographers but we’re still very wary of this larger trend of more private companies getting into the cryptocurrency game. How much more money mining can the market sustain? What about the environmental impact from the power that cryptocurrency drains? And in the future will I really be expected to buy all my chicken fries with Burger King Bucks? Only time will tell.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Press Talk When things go bad …

first_imgOf all the results we’re digesting from Tuesday’s election, the real head-scratcher was sitting Clark County Superior Court Judge John Wulle’s getting disrobed.I mean, really.This kind of thing hadn’t happened in 37 years. It’s difficult enough to boot any political incumbent … but a judge?Santa mucca!It’s not that those paying attention didn’t see the possibility.A few years back, Wulle attended a conference in Los Angeles. When someone complimented the Clark County contingent there by awarding the group a star, Wulle had a response.“I don’t need a star, I’m not a Jew.”Maybe it was Wulle’s churlish New York upbringing. Maybe it was one too many drinks (he said the cough medicine made him do it).But whatever prompted his mouth to release what was in his brain, it was unbecoming.He followed his first blunder by referring to Clark County’s group facilitator at the conference as “the black gay guy.”Toss in using profanity and making an obscene gesture, and it might have been difficult to distinguish him from some of those bad guys in his courtroom.Shortly after his conference, we reported it all. I suspect Wulle wasn’t crazy about that. And surely he couldn’t have been too happy when I wrote this in a column back then:last_img read more

Social networks may be exaggerating risk of news events

first_img More information: The amplification of risk in experimental diffusion chains, Mehdi Moussaïd, PNAS, DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1421883112AbstractUnderstanding how people form and revise their perception of risk is central to designing efficient risk communication methods, eliciting risk awareness, and avoiding unnecessary anxiety among the public. However, public responses to hazardous events such as climate change, contagious outbreaks, and terrorist threats are complex and difficult-to-anticipate phenomena. Although many psychological factors influencing risk perception have been identified in the past, it remains unclear how perceptions of risk change when propagated from one person to another and what impact the repeated social transmission of perceived risk has at the population scale. Here, we study the social dynamics of risk perception by analyzing how messages detailing the benefits and harms of a controversial antibacterial agent undergo change when passed from one person to the next in 10-subject experimental diffusion chains. Our analyses show that when messages are propagated through the diffusion chains, they tend to become shorter, gradually inaccurate, and increasingly dissimilar between chains. In contrast, the perception of risk is propagated with higher fidelity due to participants manipulating messages to fit their preconceptions, thereby influencing the judgments of subsequent participants. Computer simulations implementing this simple influence mechanism show that small judgment biases tend to become more extreme, even when the injected message contradicts preconceived risk judgments. Our results provide quantitative insights into the social amplification of risk perception, and can help policy makers better anticipate and manage the public response to emerging threats. Explore further (Phys.org)—A trio of researchers affiliated with the Max Planck Institute in Germany has found, via a small study, that news information passed through a social network, via one person to another, becomes shorter and more biased depending on the number of people that it passes through. As Mehdi Moussaïd, Henry Brighton and Wolfgang Gaissmaier note in their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the advent of social networking as a means of news distribution may be having an unknown impact on people’s perception or understanding of the news they hear about.

In this new study, the researchers in Germany have taken the game a little further, by applying lessons learned to social networking as it applies to the Internet.The researchers ran an experiment similar to the Telegraph game, using 105 volunteers they had divided into 15 groups. In so doing, they confirmed that as a bit of “news” (about the risks involved with an antibacterial agent) was passed from person to person, the facts became distorted in large part due to biases of the people passing along the information. They also found that the more people the message passed through, the shorter the message became and the more distorted or inaccurate it became as well. They suggest their findings, if looked at in terms of online social networking, could mean that real world news stories are being similarly changed as they are passed from person to person, which in turn suggests that people who get their news from social networks are likely getting a distorted version of what actually occurred, which could have implications for how people view the world and their place in it and possibly how they respond to what they hear. © 2015 Phys.org Journal information: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Cultural stereotypes may evolve from sharing social informationlast_img read more

Credit: UCLA Broad Stem Cell Research Center/Nature Communications September 21, 2017 — Brainlab announced that it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for Elements Spine SRS and Elements Cranial SRS, two software applications for patient-tailored planning of radiosurgery treatments for indications of the spine and brain. With FDA clearance of these software modules, the Brainlab Elements portfolio of applications that facilitate quick treatment planning, spare organs at risk, and create highly conformal radiation doses in the brain and spine is complete and ready for clinical use in the United States.Brainlab Elements Cranial SRS can create radiosurgery plans in less than 15 minutes from start to finish. The software supports plans for numerous cranial indications, including arteriovenous malformations (AVM), pituitary adenoma, vestibular schwannoma, glioma, meningioma and large brain metastases. A patented integrated 4p algorithm optimizes beam trajectories, automatically spares surrounding healthy tissue and organs at risk with monitor unit-efficient delivery.Historically, radiosurgery has been used with caution for spine tumors due to the risk of causing damage to the delicate spinal cord. Brainlab Elements Spine SRS addresses this issue and other challenges facing spine radiosurgery treatments, such as accounting for variations in the curvature of the spine and ensuring that high doses of radiation are delivered to the tumor and not the spinal cord itself. Contouring is streamlined and incorporates guidelines set by the International Spine Consortium.After gaining CE approval in May 2017, Elements Spine SRS and Cranial SRS were successfully introduced into clinical use worldwide. The first patients were treated with Spine SRS at Instituto Privado de Radioterapia Oncologica S.A. in Cordoba, Argentina and with Spine SRS and Cranial SRS at University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf in Germany.“We are highly impressed with the dosimetric results and the speed of plan optimization,” commented Manuel Todorovic, head of clinical physics at University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf. “We ran a few plan comparisons between our other planning software and Elements Cranial SRS. The Brainlab software either produced plans of higher quality or plans of comparable quality in significantly shorter time.”Along with the rest of the Brainlab Elements suite, including Multiple Brain Mets SRS, both Cranial and Spine SRS will be available for hands-on demonstrations at this year’s American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) 59th Annual Meeting, Sept. 24-27 in San Diego.For more information: www.brainlab.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Proton Therapy | August 08, 2019 MD Anderson to Expand Proton Therapy Center The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center unveiled plans to expand its Proton Therapy Center during a… read more News | Proton Therapy | August 06, 2019 IBA Signs Contract to Install Proton Therapy Center in Kansas IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A.) recently signed a contract and received the first payment for a Proteus One solution… read more The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.

another had mutations in a sodium ion channel gene with a similar function Both genes are linked to SUDEP in people and the sodium channel mutation can cause Dravet syndrome a particularly aggressive form of epilepsy in children with a high SUDEP risk The researchers then induced seizures in the animals and monitored activity in the brain stem and elsewhere in the brain Nine of 18 mice had what’s called “spreading depolarization” in their brain stem—essentially a shutdown of electric activity that sweeps across the critical brain region and silences neurons Spreading depolarization has been recorded in other neurologic conditions but it usually happens in parts of the brain where it’s not normally fatal For example depolarization seems to cause the perceptual “aura” described by migraine sufferers But in the mouse models of SUDEP “the spreading depolarization is noxious because it’s occurring in a very critical tissue” that controls breathing and heart function says Michael Moskowitz a neuroscientist at Harvard Medical School in Boston who has studied the phenomenon for years Noebels and Aiba also found that in 15 animals without the gene mutations inducing seizures didn’t cause spreading depolarization Instead the mice recovered from the seizure afterward—just like most people with epilepsy do Examining tissue from the animals’ brain stems in the lab Noebels and Aiba found that they could generate spreading depolarization far more easily in the mutant animals than in normal ones They also found that the mutant animal tissue responded more readily to their efforts to induce spreading depolarization after death by changing the chemical solution in which the samples were bathed Noebels wonders if the gene mutations might make it easier for spreading depolarization to take hold “The threshold for this kind of event is reduced” by expressing these mutations Moskowitz agrees The study Schuele says is fascinating “It’s the first paper that gives us an understanding of the potential mechanism” Still there’s much more to do to bolster the theory He’s curious whether spreading depolarization will show up in other mouse SUDEP models and whether it’s detectable in people who don’t have these rare mutations It’s also still unclear how seizures might cause spreading depolarization in the brain stem and how to identify those at highest risk Some patients are known to have abnormal responses during seizures such as difficulty breathing or an erratic heart rate as well as abnormal flattening of electrical activity in their cortexes — all of which might put them at increased risk Noebels says There’s hope that certain drugs can inhibit spreading depolarization including some migraine therapies and antidepressants If those at highest risk can be identified Schuele says it might make sense to “selectively treat patients” with medications that aren’t part of the usual epilepsy regimen?
