HTML5: 10 Provocative Predictions For The Future

first_img7 Types of Video that will Make a Massive Impac… Related Posts todd anglin Guest author Todd Anglin is EVP Cross Platform Tools & Services at Telerik.For HTML5 developers and decision makers, the most important technologies right now are HTML, JavaScript, CSS, mobile platforms and devices and evolving HTML platforms (browsers and operating systems). But what does that mean in the real world? It means these 10 things in 2013:  1. Rise Of HTML5 Mobile PlatformsHTML5 has played an increasingly important role building cross-platform apps for mobile devices. So far that has primarily been done using native “wrappers,” such as Cordova, which allow HTML and JavaScript to power apps on other native platforms (such as iOS and Android). This technique is called “hybrid” app development.This year, though, a wave of emerging platforms will support HTML5 apps as a first-class citizen – no wrapper required! The biggest players will be Chrome OS, which is about to get much more attention from Google; Firefox OS, already scheduled to start shipping on low-end ZTE and TCL devices in Europe; Tizen, a new HTML-focused platform backed by many industry heavyweights, including Intel and Samsung; Ubuntu Phone, which brings the most popular flavor of Linux to phones, again with a HTML-centered ap strategy; BlackBerry 10, which puts HTML and JavaScript at the center of its next-gen app strategy; and Windows 8, which introduced a new HTML and JavaScript development model for it’s “Windows 8 style” apps.   One (or more) of these platforms is bound to succeed in 2013. My money is on Chrome OS and Tizen. With the backing of Google, a revamped developer and consumer push, and the broadest platform strategy (spans mobile and desktop), Chrome OS is very well positioned.Tizen, meanwhile, enjoys broad industry backing from Intel, Samsung, NEC, Panasonic, Sprint, Huawei and Vodafone (among many others), and engineering stewardship in The Linux Foundation. It shows the most potential to challenge Android as the “more open” (read: more customizable) open source device platform, which should appeal to device makers.  2. Made For Chrome(kit)A growing number of sites are once again buildiing Web apps tested to work in only one browser. Like the “Made for Internet Explorer” badges of the 1990s, developers are now proudly advertising “Made for Chrome” in their apps. Not using Chrome? No guarantees.   This trend is likely to accelerate in 2013.   With a rapidly evolving, highlycapable browser platform that is available on virtually every major operating system (Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and kinda iOS), and a Webkit foundation that helps deliver a little extra compatibility with other non-Chrome browsers (like Safari and BlackBerry browser), developers are likely to conclude that the “good outweighs the bad” when it comes to building exclusively for Chrome.   In exchange for potentially alienating some users, developers building for Chrome can more aggressively leverage HTML5 APIs and save valuable development and testing time.  3. IE10 Euphoria – And PainInternet Explorer 10 is widely regarded as a huge step forward for the venerable Microsoft browser. With more support than ever for Web standards, IE10 goes a long way to put Microsoft’s browser in the modern HTML5 conversation.   But as fast-updating browsers like Chrome and Firefox race forward through 2013, IE will once again be left looking old and slow. There is a glimmer of hope that Microsoft will evolve IE more quickly: The Microsoft-owned HTML5 Labs, launched originally in the IE9 days, is continuing to publish new “experimental” improvements for IE10 that make it an even more capable HTML5 browser. Baby steps, but still a good sign.  4. The Death Of IE6, IE7 & IE8While IE10 will be in the spotlight, the long death march for Microsoft’s older IE versions will continue. Only the most stubborn corporate environments (and China) still require IE6 support, and much of the world skipped IE7 anyway. If you haven’t already stopped supporting IE6 and IE7, 2013 is definitely your year.   Dropping IE8 is a bit more of a stretch, but the pressure is on. Not only does IE10’s release make IE8 two versions old (often used as a “clean” support cut-off justification), but jQuery 2.0 will join Google Apps in cutting-off IE8 in 2013. By the end of the year, most developers will conclude IE8 is not worth their time.  5. The Death Of Android 2.xUntil recently, it looked like we had another IE6 on our hands with Android 2.x (Eclair, Froyo and Gingerbread). According to Google’s own stats, as recently as mid-2012, these versions of Android (mostly 2.3.x) represented more than 90% of all Android devices in use, despite the fact that Google was already shipping Android 4+! Google was failing to keep its Android user base (and ecosystem) upgrading.   Fortunately, the 2012 holiday season seems to have broken the logjam. Usage of Android 4+ (Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean) surged to nearly 40% at the end of 2012. By the end of 2013, Android 2.x will likely account for less than 15% of the market, and Android developers will be able to shift focus to versions 4+.  6. Responsive Design Goes MainstreamSo far, responsive design has remained on the fringes of Web development – something nice to do “if you have time.”   That’s about to change. With the lines between PCs and mobile devices increasingly blurred, developers will have no choice but to develop websites and apps that can dynamically adapt to an unpredictable array of screen sizes and resolutions.(See also The New ReadWrite: Looking Good On Every Screen [Video].)To ease the way, look for new techniques and defacto standards to also emerge, offering guidance for properly dealing with different device capabilities and form factors.  7. Mobile Development Overtakes DesktopIt doesn’t take an expensive analyst to see the growth in phones and tablets while traditional PCs fade. Right now is the moment when developers will begin spending more time developing software for mobile devices than for traditional desktop PCs, extending from the consumer market to businesses of all sizes, for both internal and external audiences. If you’re not developing for devices in 2013, you’re either A) maintaining legacy software, or B) missing the boat.  8. HTML On The DesktopJust because mobile is on the rise, don’t start writing an obituary for desktop development. The traditional desktop form factor will remain critical for many information workers. But as the PC becomes one among many screens, developers will look for ways to write code that can be shared across the PC and mobile devices.   HTML and JavaScript are perfectly positioned to offer this capability, and platforms like Chrome Packaged Apps and Windows Store Style (WinJS) apps will make this possible. With both Microsoft and Google pushing HTML for desktop app development, developers will take notice and start embracing cross-platform desktop development with HTML and JavaScript.  9. SPA TimeWith the shift of desktop development and increasingly complex mobile apps to HTML and JavaScript, developers will recognize the need for new techniques to build maintainable cross-platform apps. The “Single Page Application” (or SPA) has been on the rise thanks to powerful frameworks like Backbone, Knockout and even Kendo UI. If “RIA” (Rich Internet Applications) was the buzzword in 2010, “SPA” will be the buzzword in 2013.   If you’re looking for the one new technology or concept to learn as an HTML and JavaScript developer in 2013, it’s SPA architecture.  10. HTML Gets Naked (Again)Now that the W3C has “finalized” HTML5, public conversation and media coverage is going focus on what’s next for the Web standards platform. The W3C is already working on HTML 5.1, the next “snapshot” of the “living standards” work done within WHATWG, the Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group. But as we move past the “HTML5” bubble, we’ll once again settle-in to talking about HTML, sans version numbers. After all, who wants to talk or write about “HTML5.1” or “HTML5.3”?   Whatever it’s called, the next wave of HTML platform improvements will shift focus beyond the lower-level core at the center of HTML5 (DOM elements, CSS styles, Simple JavaScript APIs like Geolocation) and instead characterize improvements that are important to more robust application development (like ShadowDOM, Web Components, CSS layouts, speech recognition and more).The HTML conversation (and technology) will continue to evolve, even if the version numbers don’t come along for the ride.Image courtesy of Shutterstock.

10 Narratives You Must Avoid If You Want Success

first_imgYou are always telling yourself and others stories. Those stories include the meaning you attach to your thoughts, beliefs, and experiences, and you may frame them as positive or negative or neutral. How you frame your views, beliefs, and experiences largely determine your overall mindset. It also plays a massive role in your overall success and well-being.The Victim: The narrative of the victim is a most debilitating mindset. Believing you are a victim disempowers you and removes your agency, your ability to take action and achieve some end or goal intentionally. Telling yourself and others about the external factors or events you believe victimized you reinforce your belief that you cannot be more, do more, have more, and contribute more. Many people refuse to see themselves as victims and have reframed what are negative experiences as the events that empowered them to succeed.Circumstances of Your Birth: You cannot change the circumstances of your birth, a derivation of the victim mentality, and a beautiful sounding excuse for not becoming what you might become. The story about scarcity, poor relationships, or a lack of education may garner sympathy from some. Still, the best biographies you will ever read are about people who succeeded in spite of the circumstances of their birth. You can rewrite the narrative you tell whenever you want to, even if it isn’t easy. Success is a choice, not a birthright.It’s Everybody Else: It’s the western capitalist society that prevents you from succeeding. It’s the politicians, big companies, your parents, your manager, and your company. If you tell yourself a story about all the people and external factors that prevent you from having what you want, your confirmation bias will work overtime to identify proof that it is true. Well, true for you anyway. You’ll also find others who will validate your belief as a way to confirm their beliefs. The evidence is to the contrary, as there is no end of people succeeding who are subject to those same external factors. A better narrative is one in which you are the protagonist, not a redshirt. Success is individual.I Don’t Know How: This is the story of being helpless. The clinical term is learned helplessness, a sense of being powerless and unable to act. No one knows how to do anything until they take action and learn, and they never learn anything until they try. You may be surrounded by people who accept your belief that you can’t do something, but their acceptance doesn’t make it true, and it doesn’t improve your position in life. A better story is the one you tell yourself about your desire to learn and improve your position. Success is an auditor and demands much of you.Missing Resources: This is the story you tell about not having the money or the connections or some other set of resources you believe you are missing. The resources are important, they are available, and you can acquire them. To do that, you are going need to tell yourself a story about a scrappy upstart that exercised their resourcefulness to get started. Resourcefulness is more important than resources when it comes to success.Past Failures: The narrative here is the one in which you tried and failed. On financial disclosures, you will always find the words “past performance is not indicative of future results.” This warning is there to remind you that past success doesn’t guarantee future success. Oddly, the opposite of this is true more often when it comes to success; past failures are indicative of future success, provided the person seeking a result varies their approach and persists. You cannot be a failure, as it isn’t an identity. You can experience failure, a universal experience. Every success follows a history of failures, and that story is so typical as to be unremarkable.Not Good Enough: Imposter syndrome is the voice that tells you the story that you are not good enough and that someone will eventually discover that you are what you appear to be—if people aren’t already aware now. Some people are less competent than you who are succeeding because they tell themselves a different story, one that describes their desire and the massive action they are taking to create some result. That story is available to you, should you decide to make it your own.It’s Too Late: This tale is about how you would have, could have, and should have, but your time past. This narrative looks to the past while eliminating the fact that you have a future. You absolve yourself of the responsibility of creating that future when you locate the possibility of some result as existing only the past, something that cannot be changed, ignoring your ability to create your future, something that is within your control.I’m Too Busy: You may tell yourself that you don’t have time, but time is the only thing you have. The story sounds good when you describe how busy you are. You have work and family and other commitments. A lack of time cannot be an excuse not to build the life you want. A more useful story is the one about how you prioritized what was most important and invested in creating the life you wanted instead of drifting.It Doesn’t Matter: The story the cynic tells themselves, so they don’t risk being disappointed is that it doesn’t matter what they do, what they contribute. What you do matters. The ocean is made up of tiny drops of water, each one being a part of something much larger, and something much more powerful, all of which creates a certain environment that supports life. Who you are and what you do matters. Your success improves the lives of others, some of whom are your people. It also affects others who are impacted by what you do.Tell yourself a better, more empowering story. Get the Free eBook! Learn how to sell without a sales manager. Download my free eBook!

Rajasthan dismiss Hyderabad for lowest Ranji total of 21

first_imgHyderabad recorded the lowest total in the history of Ranji Trophy when they were all out for just 21 runs against hosts Rajasthan to begin the season on Monday. The visitors thus broke a 75-year-old record of the lowest score in a Ranji Trophy innings. Hyderabad also equalled the record for the lowest total in India’s first-class cricket history. The previous lowest total was registered by Southern Punjab, who were all out for 22 against Northern India in Amritsar in 1934-35 in the first edition of the domestic cricket tournament. Rajasthan’s 18-year-old debutant Deepak Chahar wreaked havoc by taking eight wickets. Hyderabad were all out in 15.3 overs in 78 minutes after host skipper Hrishikesh Kanitkar won the toss and opted to field. Medium pacer Chahar would have not have imagined of such a dream debut as he claimed eight wickets sparing just 10 runs in 7.3 overs. Fellow pacer Pankaj Singh claimed the remaining two wickets. – With agency inputslast_img read more

POWER 3 LAST

first_imgPrime Minister Narendra Modis promise on IndependencePrime Minister Narendra Modis promise on Independence Day in 2015 of connecting the unconnected 18,452 un-electrified villages in 1,000 days is ahead of schedule with over 40 per cent – 7,779 remote villages – already electrified, Goyal said.India is headed for the top slot in the global LED market through UJALA (Unnat Jyoti by Affordable LEDs for All) Yojana, which will replace 77 crore bulbs with energy efficient LED bulbs by 2019. Over 9 crore LED bulbs were distributed in 2015-16, about 150 times higher than 6 lakh in 2013-14. By supplying gas through transparent e-auctions in 2015, nearly half of gas power plants were revived, he said. GARV (Grameen Vidyutikaran) app to help people track rural electrification and UJALA app to monitor LED distribution has brought accountability and transparency in these two programmes. Moreover, Vidyut Pravah app provides real time information of electricity price and availability. By filling the information gap, State governments have been made accountable.India is running the worlds largest renewable energy expansion programme with a target to increase overall renewable capacity by more than 5 times from 32,000 MW in 2014 to 1,75,000 MW in 2022. “By taking a leadership role in the International Solar Alliance of 121 countries and organising RE-Invest 2015, the worlds largest renewable financing meet, our government has laid the foundations for massive growth in this sector,” he said. The farmer has been additionally benefitted through the highest-ever distribution of solar pumps in 2015-16, greater than total solar pumps installed since launch of the scheme in 1991. The power constrained southern states have been provided relief by increasing the transmission capacity by 71 per cent and revived gas plants, which has expanded availability of electricity and reduced procurement prices of electricity by over 50 per cent. By resolving problems in hydroelectric projects the government is ensuring clean power to the North East, the minister said. “The last two years have seen many records broken and many firsts. There is now a clear roadmap to achieve the vision of Ujwal Bharat ? delivering 24×7 affordable power to every household and adequate power to farmers, in an environment friendly manner,” Goyal added.

French Open Super Series: PV Sindhu loses to Akane Yamaguchi to crash out in semis

first_imgPV Sindhu crashed out of the $325,000 French Open Super Series after going down in straight games to Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi 14-21, 9-21 in the women’s singles semi-final in Paris on Saturday.Coming into the contest with a 3-1 head-to-head record, the second seeded Indian failed to find the momentum going her way in the match that lasted for only 37 minutes.The first game saw a close contest between both the shuttlers with the Japanese sticking her neck out with a slender 11-10 lead at the breather.Coming back, world No. 5 Yamaguchi gave little away to the Rio Olympics silver medallist, as she went on to win seven straight points to take the opening game with ease.The second game witnessed complete domination from the Japanese shuttler, who opened up a 6-0 lead before heading to the break at 11-2.After the break, Yamaguchi continued to hold the upper hand and took full advantage of Sindhu’s numerous unforced errors to easily pocket the game and the match.Yamaguchi will now face Chinese Taipei’s Tai Tzu Ying, who earlier beat defending champion He Bingjiao 21-14, 17-21, 21-8, in the final on Sunday.last_img read more

Blues Blow Out Islanders, 6-3

first_imgST. LOUIS — Alexander Steen returned to the ice and looked as though he hadn’t missed a beat.After sitting out two games with a lower-body injury, Steen scored two goals, and Jake Allen made 25 saves in the St. Louis Blues’ 6-3 win over the suddenly slumping New York Islanders on Dec. 11. Steen has 18 points in 17 career games against the Islanders.“He’s such a skilled player,” Allen said of Steen. “He’s such a workhorse leader for us. He can do it all. It just goes to show how good of a player he actually is. He’s an underrated player in the league, but we know how valuable he is to our team.”Steen’s goal at 4:34 of the third period broke a 2-2 tie. T.J. Oshie started the play by ripping a shot down the right side. The rebound off goalie Jaroslav Halak’s pad went to Steen, who scored his seventh of the season.“I was shooting for a rebound there,” Oshie said. “I tried high blocker once and I don’t know if I’d tried five-hole already, but I figured I’d shoot for a rebound. I saw the guys coming from the weak side, and luckily Steener was there.”Oshie and Paul Stastny added insurance goals at 15:47 and 17:48.Kyle Okposo scored his sixth goal for New York at 18:16, before Jaden Schwartz ended any hopes of an Islanders comeback with an empty-net goal at 18:56.After surrendering just four goals during a three game winning streak, the Islanders have given up 17 during their skid — including six twice to the Blues.“We’ll give up five a night if we keep mismanaging the puck,” Islanders coach Jack Capuano said. “They’ll figure it out sooner or later, and if not they won’t be in the lineup.”Allen, in his first action since being replaced by Martin Brodeur in the Blues’ first meeting with the Islanders last Saturday, turned away five of six shots in the third period after coughing up a two-goal lead late in the second.It was a far cry from Allen’s first outing against the Islanders when the rookie was pulled after giving up three goals on just 12 shots in the opening period. “I wanted to just get back on track,” Allen said. “Just to feel good about myself again. I felt very in control tonight and kept the game simple.”Steen scored his sixth of the season on the power play at 5:58 in the first period to give the Blues a 1-0 lead.Barret Jackman doubled the lead at 14:18. Jackman’s slap shot from the top of the circle was his first goal since Jan. 20 against Detroit.The Islanders tied it with a pair of goals late in the second period. John Tavares scored his 12th goal of the season at 16:03 to put the Islanders on the board. Mikhail Grabovski’s unassisted goal at 19:55 tied it.It was the second time in two games that the Blues struggled in the second period. St. Louis gave up 14 shots to the Islanders after surrendering 18 to Florida on Dec. 8.“Tonight’s game is a microcosm of our season,” Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. “We’ve got great spirit, which is stuff you love, but understanding and managing the game the right way, I think it’s important for us to figure out.”Halak, questionable before the game due to an upper-body injury, was shaken up midway through the first period after taking David Backes’ shot in the mask. Halak stayed in the game and finished with 27 saves.Halak, playing for the first time in St. Louis since being traded last season, refused to talk to reporters after the game.“Jaro probably wanted this game and we wanted to get it for him,” Islanders center Brock Nelson said. “We weren’t able to do the job and it’s tough when that happens.”(JOE HARRIS)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Dee A Thomas

Dee A. Thomas, our loving husband, father, and grandfather passed away on September 28, 2019 in a Utah County hospital, the culmination of a long battle with lung and heart problems. Dee was born in Kamas, Utah on April 15, 1946 to Charles William Thomas and Melba Atkinson Thomas.He married Glenda Miles on June 10, 1966 in Kamas, Utah. They had two wonderful children Terry and Shalise. Dad grew up in Kamas and graduated from South Summit High School and earned a basketball scholarship to Utah State. After college and serving in the Army at Fort Bliss, Dee and Glenda traveled all over the state of Utah working for Strong Company Construction before settling in Ferron, Utah where Dee helped finish the Hunter (Emery) and Huntington power plants as a member of the Operating Engineers Local 3 and later for Industrial Power Contractors. They never left Emery County spending the last 45 years “staying away from the Utah County traffic”.As a kid Dad loved hunting deer with his family in Moon Canyon and later on Ferron Mountain with his friends and son…nothing better than a day on the mountain with BYU football on the radio. Dad was deeply involved with his family and community in Ferron. He served as president of little league baseball where he led the fundraising purchase of the first pitching machine in Emery County. He coached little league basketball and football continuing to coach even after his kids had moved on.Dad was always on the move and working to make a life for his family. Dad was never one to shy away from work, but was also the first to start up a conversation with anyone he met or happened to be standing next to him in line at Disneyland. Everyone who met Dad felt like they were the most important person in the world. After retirement, the Thomas shed became the location for refurbishing furniture, making candles, tinkering with everything, and was a favorite conversation spot for anyone who happened to be driving by or needed a helping hand. He loved spending time with his grandchildren; trips to Disneyland, pulling them on sleds with the 4-wheeler, or heading down to the candy store.Dad is survived by his wife Glenda, his son Terry (Gala), daughter Shalise Garner, brother Phil (Carol Ann), five grandchildren: Brittanee (Kirk), Hailie (Justin), Andrea (Mason), Makenna, and Tori, three great grandchildren: Addilynn, Mckynlee, and Thomas, and nephews and nieces.Preceded in death by his parents, two infant sisters, mother and father-in law Glendon and Wanda Miles, and brothers-in-law Bob and Bart Miles.A viewing will be held on Friday, October 4, 2019 from 10:30 to 11:45 am at the Kamas Second Ward Church 100 West Center. A celebration of life will begin at noon in the chapel. Interment will be in Francis, Utah cemetery.A family visitation will be held in Ferron, Utah at the Ferron Millsite Church from 11 am to 1 pm on Saturday, October 5, 2019. read more

Medical examiner Inmate died while being restrained

first_imgFive months after a Vancouver man with a history of mental illness died in the Clark County Jail, his death has been ruled a homicide from asphyxia while being restrained by custody officers.The investigation into the circumstances of Marius Asanachescu’s Feb. 10 death continues, said Sgt. Scott Creager of the Vancouver Police Department. Creager said Wednesday that he and other members of the major crimes unit will meet next week with Clark County Medical Examiner Dr. Dennis Wickham to discuss Wickham’s findings.On Wednesday, Asanachescu’s mother, Afrodita, said she used to trust the justice system. “What happened to my son is incredible,” she said. “They killed him.” The internal affairs unit of the Clark County Sheriff’s Office has been conducting its own investigation, said sheriff’s Sgt. Fred Neiman. Neiman would not say how many custody officers were involved in restraining Asanachescu, but said they were put on routine administrative leave during the initial phases of the investigation and have returned to work.Creager said finished reports will be forwarded to Clark County Prosecutor Tony Golik for his review. Golik will determine whether to file criminal charges against any of the custody officers. The ruling on Asanachescu’s death comes after inmate suicides on July 1 and July 7.According to a June report from Clark County Auditor Greg Kimsey, between 2007 and 2011 the jail has been “heavily impacted by special-needs inmates: the mentally ill, geriatric, physically or mentally challenged or violent.” Suicide attempts have more than doubled since 2007, the report said.last_img read more

Get This Facial Recognition For Cats

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. 3 min read Enroll Now for Free Pet tech. Oh yes, it’s happening. And anyone who loves their pets like family will want to check this out.A new food dish uses facial recognition for perhaps the world’s most important species: cats. Called Bistro, the high-tech feeder is designed for homes with multiple felines. When each furry friend approaches the bowl, it recognizes her face and keeps track of how much water and food she consumes while dining. It also weighs her and notifies you that she’s eating.Since the bowl knows which cat is consuming what, it can quickly identify when a cat’s eating habits change. If Mr. Pickles, let’s say, is eating all the food meant for himself and Lady Marmalade, you’ll know right away and can make adjustments.Related: Meet Plantoid, the Robot That Grows Like the Roots of a PlantLikewise, if the Lady is drinking twice as much water than normal, you’ll know she might have an issue before she starts showing other symptoms of something like feline diabetes. If you’re really curious what happens around lunchtime, you can also check in on your furry friends and watch them eat in real time from your smartphone.We’re not kidding:Consumption habits are tracked over time and are available in graph form within Bistro’s mobile app. So, when you take your furry companion to the vet, you can tell him exactly how much your cat has been eating and when.Related: Forget Drones. ‘RoboBees’ and ‘RoBirds’ Take Flight.Bistro is the brainchild of Taiwanese inventor Mu-Chi Sung and was created after one of his own cats almost died from an undetected health problem. The owner of six cats, Sung didn’t notice his cat Momo was ill until he found her paralyzed. A vet visit revealed she had congenital heart disease and pancreatitis, and likely hadn’t been eating or drinking for days. Since there were five other cats snacking on the same food, he didn’t realize that one was suffering. Bistro changes that, by tracking the eating and drinking habits of each cat individually. It turns out quite a few people think facial recognition for cats might be a puurrfect idea (yeah, we went there). Sung is raising money for the first run of Bistro’s on Indiegogo, and has already blown past his original $100,000 goal by more than $70,000. Pledging $179 gets you in on the crowdfunding campaign and will get your fur ball’s paws one of the first Bistro units off the assembly line in March 2015.If it’s successful, we think there’s a likely an opportunity for Bistro to expand beyond cats to the greater pet market. The bowl could be useful for multiple-pooch households, and could probably come in handy for other types of pets as well. Long-term we could also see it being used in farming and zoo-type situations where multiple animals are trying to enjoy dinner from the same dish.Facial recognition for goats? Maybe one day.Related: Giant Crab-Like Robot to Plumb the Ocean for Shipwrecks and Treasure This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.

Data from left and right anterior thalamic radiation (ATR) were averaged. Image courtesy of C. Bouziane et al. November 16, 2011 — The American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) issued a response voicing concerns over the implications of a study published this week in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). The study, entitled “Association Between Physician Billing and Cardiac Stress Testing Patterns Following Coronary Revascularization,” suggests financial reimbursement and imaging equipment ownership may influence utilization of cardiac stress tests.”We recognize that, in light of escalating healthcare costs, the study of the utilization of our healthcare resources, including cardiac ultrasound, is valuable. It is important to recognize that the timeframe involved in this study predates publication of the ACCF/ASE/AHA/ASNC/HFSA/HRS/SCAI/SCCM/SCCT/SCMR 2011 Appropriateness Use Criteria for Echocardiography (AUC), which were published in March 2011. We believe that the Appropriate Use Criteria have influenced physician ordering patterns,” said ASE President James D. Thomas, M.D., FASE. “If the research were done today, we believe that the results would be different.”A video on the JAMA Website that accompanies the article acknowledges that Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) were not in place when the data was collected; it also notes the importance of follow-up studies to assess the impact of AUC.ASE cautions against the use of this study to influence placing limitations on any practice setting, as it has several notable weaknesses. First, taken as a whole, the study notes that only 2.5 percent of the claims for stress echocardiograms performed did not include a symptom justifying the study; according to ASE, the inaccurate nature of coding data could well have resulted in overestimation of asymptomatic patients.Secondly, the lack of clinical data makes extrapolating this to a larger subset difficult. This study is based on data collected in a private practice setting, which was far more prevalent at the time the research was conducted. A recent survey of ASE members demonstrates that only 26.5 percent of members still practice in these settings. Thus, the results of the current study are unlikely to reflect current practice patterns and therefore should not be generalized.An editorial by Hollenbeck and Nallamothus in the same issue of JAMA, points out that although imaging utilization among cardiovascular specialists has increased over the last two decades, “at the same time, there have been substantial declines in mortality related to coronary disease, and thus it is uncertain whether the observed increase in imaging utilization is entirely a bad thing.”ASE strongly encourages physicians to refer to the AUC, the American Society of Echocardiography Recommendations for Performance, Interpretation and Application of Stress Echocardiography, and other guidelines prior to ordering stress echocardiography. The society has collaborated with the American College of Cardiology (ACC) on a Web-based ordering tool, called FOCUS, which is intended to help a physician decide whether a test is appropriate according to the AUC.As a founding member of the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories (ICAEL), ASE recognizes and supports the role of lab accreditation in ensuring adherence to the AUC; this results in fewer inappropriate studies and improved quality, thus reducing the need for repeat studies.ASE has published numerous guidelines promoting best practices for cardiovascular ultrasound usage and providing members with educational products such as apps and pocket guides to increase compliance. The society is also conducting outreach to try to influence practice through these methods.Finally, ASE is working to find an effective reimbursement paradigm; the ideal solution balances quality and appropriateness with patient comfort and user-friendliness, and supports having cardiac ultrasound studies performed and interpreted by qualified cardiologists/echocardiographers dedicated to optimal patient care.The society encourages insurers and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to partner with professional societies incorporating AUC and decision tools such as FOCUS into daily clinical practice.For more information: www.asecho.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Colonoscopy Systems | August 06, 2019 Rise in Early Onset Colorectal Cancer Not Aligned With Screening Trends A new study finds that trends in colonoscopy rates did not fully align with the increase in colorectal cancer (CRC) in… read more News | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 06, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Improves Heart Attack Risk Assessment When used with a common heart scan, machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence (AI), does better than… read more News | Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 First Patient Enrolled in World’s Largest Brain Cancer Clinical Trial Henry Ford Cancer Institute is first-in-the-world to enroll a glioblastoma patient in the GBM AGILE Trial (Adaptive… read more News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more Image courtesy of Imago Systems News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more News | November 16, 2011 ASE Concerned Over Self-Referral, Overutilization of Cardiac Stress Exams News | Pediatric Imaging | August 14, 2019 Ultrasound Guidance Improves First-attempt Success in IV Access in Children August 14, 2019 – Children’s veins read more News | Mammography | August 14, 2019 Imago Systems Announces Collaboration With Mayo Clinic for Breast Imaging Image visualization company Imago Systems announced it has signed a know-how license with Mayo Clinic.

Small boats banned off Puerto Vallarta because of hurricane

first_img New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Top Stories MEXICO CITY (AP) — Authorities closed the waters off the popular beach destination of Puerto Vallarta to small boats Tuesday as a weakening Hurricane Carlos continued to skirt up Mexico’s southwestern coastline.At least one cruise ship, the Carnival Miracle, canceled a port call planned for Wednesday in Puerto Vallarta, port official Odilon Garcia Castillon said by phone from the Pacific Coast city.With safety alerts in effect, were “continuing to monitor the situation,” Castillon said.

Tropical Storm Carlos churned up strong winds and waves Sunday while threatening to regain strength as it trudged up Mexico’s Pacific coast. (AP Photo/Bernandino Hernandez) Carlos weakened during the night, with its maximum sustained winds down to 75 mph (120 kph) by late Tuesday, just above the threshold for a Category 1 hurricane, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.The storm was centered about 55 miles (90 kilometers) south-southwest of Manzanillo. It was moving northwest about 5 mph (7 kph) past a stretch of coast that is mostly lightly populated, with the exception of Manzanillo, a port city of about 100,000 inhabitants.Carlos was forecast to weaken substantially over the next 48 hours and likely become a tropical storm as it moved closer to Puerto Vallarta.Education authorities in Jalisco state, where Puerto Vallarta is, announced that schools would close in a half dozen towns.Over the weekend, high surf kicked up by Carlos swamped some boats and washed away small palm-frond beach huts in Acapulco, while strong winds knocked down trees and billboards. No major damage or deaths were reported.Rain accumulations of 3 to 6 inches (8 to 15 centimeters) were possible in areas near the storm, with a chance for up to 10 inches (25 centimeters) in isolated spots, the Hurricane Center said.A tropical storm warning was in effect from Punta San Telmo to Cabo Corrientes. A hurricane watch was posted from Punta San Telmo to Playa Perula. Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
