TAOISEACH ENDA KENNY has mounted a loyal defence of Alan Shatter, insisting that his justice minister has no reason to consider resigning over the Mick Wallace penalty points affair.The leaders of Fianna Fáil, Sinn Féin and the Technical Group all used today’s Leaders’ Questions to challenge Kenny on whether he supported Shatter’s decision to reveal confidential Garda information about Wallace on a live TV broadcast.Kenny said the purpose of Shatter’s comments was to undermine Wallace’s argument about the application of Garda discretion in having penalty points terminated, and not offences themselves.Fianna Fáíl’s Micheál Martin said the use of “private information, supplied to Minister Shatter by the Gardaí, and used in a debate to undermine a political opponent” created a “threatening innuendo”.“If you question us too much, we’ll get you,” Martin imagined, before referring to Shatter’s own criticisms of then-minister Willie O’Dea in 2010 when the latter used confidential information to attack an opponent.“It’s outrageous for you, here, to make a claim or an insinuation, that the Minister for Justice is going around collecting files on members of this house,” Kenny retorted, insisting the information disclosed by Shatter “was relevant to the argument being made by Deputy Wallace”.Sinn Féin president Gerry Adams also questioned whether Shatter should be asked to resign, saying: “If it’s good enough for Willie O’Dea, it’s good enough for your Minister for Justice and this government.”“The answer to that question is no,” Kenny briefly rebutted.John Halligan, representing the Technical Group, said Shatter’s use of privileged information on national TV “represents a threat to every citizen” – and said Kenny’s support of Shatter was an instruction that every other minister could act similarly in disclosing confidential information as they saw fit.Kenny said questions on the issue would be better addressed to Shatter himself, who is to attend the Dáil after 6pm this evening to make a statement and take questions on the issue.The Taoiseach repeatedly said he welcomed Wallace’s own admission that the incident in question – where Wallace was stopped by Gardaí in Dublin last year for using a mobile phone while driving, but was not issued with penalty points for doing so – while Wallace was seen to shake his head.Read: Shatter to face questions in Dáil over Wallace row
The electronic crimes squad and a prosecutor have been asked to investigate whether gangs or individuals are using scams to defraud the electronic prescription system launched by the government earlier this year.Health Minister Andreas Lykourentzos revealed to a parliamentary committee that the number of prescriptions issued through the system, which was set up to cut down on waste and fraud, had been noticeably high over the last few months.Prior to the electronic prescriptions scheme being adopted, roughly 5 million notes were issued by doctors each month. It was revealed that this July, soon after the e-prescription scheme went into operation, 5.7 million notes were issued. In August, the number of prescriptions fell to 5.4 million. The number of drugs prescribed during these two months cost about 600 million euros. Greece was aiming to cut its spending on medicines by about 1 billion euros, to under 2 billion in total this year, but this target will be missed.Lykourentzos added that on October 1, almost 290,000 prescriptions were issued, followed by nearly 280,000 on October 2. “During the first four days of the month, the number of prescriptions suggested that 10 percent of the population had fallen ill,” said Lykourentzos.“I have asked a prosecutor to investigate this and the electronic crimes squad is also involved,” he said. “We have taken the database and are checking what has happened.”Repeated protest action by pharmacists over the past few weeks has disrupted the flow of the new system but there are suspicions that copied social security numbers have been used by gangs to try to scam the government. Some doctors are also under investigation. Sources said that during August, one doctor in Xanthi, northeastern Greece, was found to have issued almost 4,400 prescriptions.An official at the Computer Center for Social Security Services (IDIKA), which oversees the e-prescription scheme, told Kathimerini there was no signs of the system having been hacked.

Nothing epitomizes the plight that Greece has found inself in, better than the desolate venues that hosted the 2004 Olympic Games. One by one, these expensive sports centres, which cost fortunes to build, have been abandoned, left to rot, modern ruins of excessive spending, government corruption and the irresponsibe stance of a once-proud nation. This is precisely the reason that these same projects were chosen as the perfect setting for Nike’s ad campaign. The sportswear giant is set to send an empowering, uplifting message, delivered by four of the most impressive and inspiring competitive athletes that emerged in Greece these past few years. In the ad, swimmer Eleni Hatzimitrou, Paralympic runner Michalis Seitis, NBA player Giannis Antetokounmpo and pole vaulter Nikoleta Kyriakopulou prepare to ply their craft. A voiceover, delivered in Greek, sends a message of defiance. “We will not be defined by circumstance,” read the English captions. “We will not be undone by what is broken. We are more than our surroundings. We are the makers of our fate.” The company’s Greek marketing department created the ad with Wieden + Kennedy Amsterdam, hoping to inspire the country’s athletes, amateur and professional alike. Its goal also includes showing “young people how sport can motivate them to improve their everyday lives, and help them to beat the odds and take ownership of their future,” the brand says. Although the ad avoids explicitly mentioning the financial crisis and its consequences – especially among the young population (which is the core target of the brand’s products) – the implications seem clear enough. Greek youth were hit particularly hard by dire fiscal straits, with almost 52 percent of 15- to 24-year-olds out of work—double the overall unemployment rate of 24.4 percent.

News The classic-rock titan passed away in October of 2017, but his legacy lives on through his longtime bandmates in the Heartbreakers and his daughters, Adria and AnnakimRachel BrodskyGRAMMYs Feb 28, 2019 – 6:59 am American classic-rock hero Tom Petty passed away in October of 2017, just one week after his final 40th anniversary tour date at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. But his music and legacy live on: Last fall saw the release of a Petty rarities album called An American Treasure, and on March 1, another collection will be released. The Best of Everything: The Definitive Career Spanning Hits Collection 1976-2016 features 38 songs from Petty’s recordings with the Hearbreakers, his early ’70s project Mudcrutch and his solo recordings.Speaking to Billboard about the rocker’s legacy, Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tench elaborated on losing his friend and how he continues to cope with the sudden loss (Petty died of cardiac arrest). “It’s hard to just realize, I suppose, that I’m not gonna get to play with that guy,” he said. “I’m not gonna get to make that sound. He’s not gonna show me a new song. I’m not gonna be at the Clubhouse and start playing an Elmore James song and he’ll fall in and know every word. That’s not gonna happen—and I really, really miss that.”Tench also called out the differences between both new Petty compilations, the second of which arrives tomorrow: “(The Best of Everything) is more for the fan who loves the band but is a casual fan,” he said. “And if this rings somebody’s bell, then An American Treasure is where to go to get deeper. And, of course, for every song on this greatest hits there’s an album that goes with it, so they can go there, too.”Petty’s daughters Adria and Annakim Petty also spoke to Billboard about keeping their dad’s legacy alive, though they admitted that they had decided to take a break from releasing anything too soon after The Best Of Everything.”I think we’re going to take a beat after this and let this record come out and do justice to the finest work our dad did and sort of being the journey of trying to be the messengers and ambassadors of this work and this band,” Adria said. “Personally I’m hoping we’re not releasing anything for a little while so we get a chance to digest what happened. We have such a rich archive; We want to follow the spirit and the ethics our father believed in and be real decent about how we steward this really huge gift he gave us.”Petty earned MusiCares’ Person Of The Year accolade in 2017 and won three GRAMMYs over the course of his career. He was nominated for 18 GRAMMYs as a solo artist and won one GRAMMY award with the Heartbreakers, along with being nominated for five. Who’s Paying Tribute To Tom Petty?

Amritsar : Former Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who passed away on Saturday in Delhi after prolonged illness, had a connection with this Sikh holy city in Punjab – from relatives to the famous ‘Amritsari kulchas’. In his debut Lok Sabha election in 2014, which he lost to Congress’ Amarinder Singh, he said he had a greater Amritsar connection than his political rival. Also Read – Shah urges women to shun plastic bags Advertise With Us “If you ask me about my ancestral town, I would say Amritsar as I have at least 40 cousins and relatives who live here. I have been politically closely connected with Punjab and my base was always Amritsar. I know all the party workers here,” he was often quoted as saying in his interactions with voters. In his first and last electoral battle in his political career spanning over four decades, he had said that he was excited to be in the fray from Amritsar for two reasons. Also Read – Free bus travel for women gets Cabinet nod Advertise With Us “Firstly, I am a Punjabi belonging to Amritsar, and secondly I want to serve my constituency by using my influence with the new government coming,” he had said. His favourite local food was ‘Amritsari kulchas’, a local delicacy. “I am getting a regular supply of ‘Amritsari kulchas’ even when I am in Delhi,” he had said. Amarinder Singh, who is now the Chief Minister, had won this seat by a margin of more than a lakh votes by defeating Jaitley. At that time, the SAD-BJP combine was in power in the state. Advertise With Us Amarinder Singh mourned Jaitley’s demise, saying “My thoughts are with his family.” “Sad to hear that former Union Minister Arun Jaitley ji has passed away. My thoughts are with his family in this time of grief. May his soul rest in peace,” Amarinder Singh tweeted. Not attributing his defeat to the Akali Dal, Jaitley had said: “I cannot attribute my defeat to the Akali Dal. Local factors had gone against us. We could not remove them during the campaign.” Then Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal, who is known for his proximity to the BJP top leadership, said Jaitley’s loss “has been a blot on the Akali Dal-BJP leadership jointly”. Badal, who devoted the maximum time in canvassing for Jaitley, had tried to lure the voters by claiming that if they elect Jaitley, they will have the next deputy prime minister from Amritsar. During the campaigning in 2014, Amarinder Singh often accused Jaitley of being a ‘pseudo’ Punjabi and a ‘guest from Delhi’. At this, he replied: “Despite my ancestral roots in Punjab, Captain Sahib (Amarinder Singh) called me an ‘outsider’ and a ‘pseudo’ Punjabi. Will he be kind enough to tell me which state in India does the Congress President (Sonia Gandhi) belong to?” “I will rather ask him why he is still so obsessed with a mindset of ‘Maharaja’. He is a monarch in a democracy. He is too much obsessed with himself. Even feudalism has not gone out of his head. He is always rude and thinks he has the right to insult others. He is the discredited captain of a sinking ship,” Jaitley had said. Jaitley, who had promised the electorate that he will set up his residential base here, had bought a house in the posh Green Avenue area of the city ahead of the polling. Senior BJP leader Rajinder Mohan Singh Chhina, who belongs to this city and was known for his proximity to Jaitley, condoled his death. Chhina told IANS that Jaitley was a bridge between the SAD-BJP alliance in the state.
More than 1.2 million Texans are signed up for health insurance through the federal marketplace. That’s the part of Obamacare that allows companies to sell plans directly to individuals. Under the GOP replacement bill working its way through Congress, there could be big changes to how the government helps these individuals pay for their plans.At 60, Victoria Tisor is on a fixed income. She says health insurance under the Republicans’ proposed plan would not be affordable for her. CREDIT GABRIEL CRISTÓVER PÉREZ / KUTCentral Texas, overall, would fare better than other parts of the country. Health care and insurance costs are lower in this part of the state. But there are still some folks here who would be negatively affected by the Republicans’ plan.One of those Texans is Victoria Tisor. She lives in Oak Hill with a vegetable garden in her backyard and three chickens named after the Dixie Chicks.Tisor is a textbook “responsible adult.” Her house is paid off, and she eats healthy, works out and plans everything.“I am the kind of individual who says, ‘I have responsibility for my own life and my own path,’” she says.So when the Republican health care plan was first released, she sat down and did the numbers to find out what it might mean for her.“Well, I’m worried right now,” Tisor says. “I don’t know how it’s going to change in the next few months, but the package that is out there right now is not affordable for me.”Experts say a lot of folks would find insurance unaffordable under the GOP plan.“Both premiums and out-of-pocket costs are going to be much higher for some individuals under the bill, specifically people who are low income, people who live in rural areas and people who are older – ages 50 to 64,” says Stacey Pogue with the left-leaning Center for Public Policy Priorities.Pogue says individuals who fall into two or three of those categories would be hit hardest under the GOP plan. Tisor falls into two of those categories. She’s 60 years old, and she’s on a fixed income, bringing in about $30,000 a year from her pension.Pogue says a couple of things are working against Tisor. The GOP proposal “raises the underlying cost of the premiums for older enrollees and then it reduces the amount of help – the tax credits they get – to make those premiums affordable,” she says.This amounts to what Pogue calls an “age tax.”Under Obamacare, people who are older, make less money or live in high-premium areas – which are usually rural areas – get larger tax credits.But under the Republican plan, that’s almost flipped. If you are younger, make more money or live in low-premium areas – like Central Texas– you will get more help.Tax CreditsNora Chovanec, 29, also keeps chickens in her backyard, just north of UT. She’s one of almost 114,000 people in Austin who buy insurance through the Obamacare marketplace.She says right now it’s not possible for her to get covered by an insurer.“I have a lot of jobs like most people my age,” Chovanec says. “I’m a small-business owner — I started Salud Bitters — and I also work for Texas Farmers Markets and Travis Audubon and other things on the side.”Chovanec says she’s used the marketplace for a couple years now. When her business was getting off the ground, she got subsidies from the federal government, but now she’s making more money and pays the full $250 monthly premium herself.Chovanec says it looks like she could get some help under the Republican proposal.“I, as a young healthy person, would actually benefit,” she says. “This plan would save me on my taxes at the end of the year.”Pogue says Chovanec’s premium could come down and she could see a tax credit for the first time.“She would not qualify for a tax credit under the Affordable Care Act because her income is too high,” Pogue says, “but she would qualify for a tax credit under the House health plan.”According to an interactive map from the Kaiser Family Foundation, Chovanec is looking at a $2,000 tax credit. Under the same plan, 60-year-old Tisor would see her tax credit shrink by almost $3,000, and her premiums will go up.An Uncertain Future“I understand the high-level math behind that,” Tisor says. “There are more people in my age group that are higher risk. But as an individual I am very, very healthy, I have very low risk activity. Yet, a 28-year-old probably engages in a lot more risky things than me, right?”This doesn’t sit right with Chovanec, either.“I am a believer in caring for the other people in your community,” she says. “So, I see how for me it could be a short-term few thousand-dollar benefit, but [it] is really going to have negative effects on a lot of lower-income people and older people.”“I don’t personally want to be part of a system where I benefit and other people get screwed over,” she says.Plus, Chovanec says she’s not totally convinced this plan would keep her premiums down in the long run.Pogue also says out-of-pocket costs like deductibles and copays would go up for everyone under the GOP replacement plan.Neither Chovanec nor Tisor thinks Obamacare is perfect, either. Both have had their premiums go up since they got in the marketplace.In fact, Tisor says her plan got so expensive that she decided to take a risk and not have health insurance this year. She says she was planning to get a policy next year, however, but her options aren’t looking good so far.Copyright 2017 KUT-FM. To see more, visit KUT-FM. Share
The rollercoaster ride that saw Microsoft acquire Nokia has come to an abrupt end, and around 1850 former Nokians are about to be tossed clear from the train.Of those workers, 1,350 are currently working in Nokia’s home country of Finland. A further 500 jobs will be cut at other locations around the globe, but Microsoft didn’t specify where. With these latest layoffs, Microsoft will have shed nearly 10,000 employees in the wake of the Nokia acquisition.That human cost comes on top of $7.5 billion in writedowns last year and another $950 million this year. In case you can’t recall how much Microsoft spent to buy Nokia, it was $7.2 billion, and it’s only been two years since they did it. In that time, they’ve watched their share of the global mobile phone market shrink to less than one percent, according to recent estimates.On a positive note, they did manage to offload Nokia’s featurephone business to Foxconn a little while ago for a cool $350 million… so they can at least claim that as a victory, however small.While they’re done making Lumia phones and will be scaling things back, Microsoft is quick to point out that they’re not ready to to give up on smartphones. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said in a statement that Microsoft will be “focusing our phone efforts where we have differentiation.”VP of the Windows and Devices Group Terry Myerson stated in an memo sent out to Microsoft employees that they are “scaling back, but we’re not out!” Myerson also echoed Nadella’s comment, saying that Microsoft “needs to be more focused.”That could mean they’re finally getting close to launching a Surface phone. Let’s hope that goes better for them than the whole Nokia thing did. It couldn’t possibly go much worse, right?

Unveiled during the Society for Imaging Informatics (SIIM) 2014 Annual Meeting, ICIS Mobile and Web Capture enables physicians, caregivers and patients to publish clinically relevant medical images from mobile and Web-based devices to a securely indexed entry within a patient’s electronic health record (EHR). Doing so, the technology fosters increased physician-to-physician engagement across departments and beyond the hospital’s walls, while creating an environment that empowers patients to become more informed and involved in the care management process. “ICIS’s easy-to-use mobile interface also empowers patients to become involved in their medical care — allowing them to take ‘medical selfies’ as needed, reducing unnecessary and costly visits. For instance, with ICIS, a patient being treated for a diabetic foot ulcer now has the ability to produce and share relevant wound images within a highly secure application, enabling the physician to monitor the treatment progress without the need for repeated visits to an examination room,” stated Lenny J. Reznik, director, Enterprise Imaging and Information Solutions, Agfa HealthCare North America.ICIS “Mobilizing” the Image-enabled EHRICIS now combines an HTML5 Web-based mobile interface with a flexible workflow and robust metadata to allow seamless accessibility while providing scalability to meet the needs of various departments within the hospital. Leveraging the power of ICIS, Agfa HealthCare’s “gold standard” enterprise imaging platform, and the flexibility of ICIS View, Agfa HealthCare’s Web-based universal viewer, ICIS’s mobile and Web capture technology delivers enhanced viewing, sharing and integration across mobile platforms, of images from all sources securely accessible on a single mobile-based viewer.Key attributes of ICIS Mobile and Web Capture now include:Secure access, including from mobile devices, to imaging data from different departments to those who needs it: clinicians, referring physicians and patientsThe ability to view images from multiple sources, within a single, patient-centric mobile environmentSeamless integration in the EHR and interoperability with solutions from top vendorsHighly intuitive interface that uses familiar, two-finger mobile device gestures and supports QR codes for fast image sharing with referring physicians or patientsFor more information: www.AgfaHealthCare.com, www.visualhealthcare.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Enterprise Imaging | July 05, 2019 Hyland Healthcare Adds ImageNext Imaging Workflow Optimizer to Enterprise Imaging Suite Hyland Healthcare is launching ImageNext, a vendor-neutral imaging workflow optimizer that combines intelligent imaging… read more News | Electronic Medical Records (EMR) | August 01, 2019 DrChrono Teams With DeepScribe to Automate Medical Note Taking in EHR DrChrono Inc. and DeepScribe announced a partnership so medical practices using DrChrono EHR can use artificial… read more Video Player is loading.Building the Right Team for Enterprise Imaging Success – Part 1Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 8:44Loaded: 1.86%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -8:44 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Three recent rulings issued by the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court, or Sala IV, prompted the Public Works and Transport Ministry (MOPT) to turn off the lights on three electronic billboards along major roadways in the Costa Rican capital.MOPT last week told the National Power and Light Company to power down the billboards due to “visual pollution,” a phrase used in the Sala IV rulings. However, the ministry cannot order the billboards to be removed because they are located on private property.The LED screens belong to Interamericana Medios de Comunicación (IMC) and are located near Plaza del Sol Mall in Curridabat, east of San José, next to La Sabana Park, in western San José, and across the street from the National Museum in downtown San José.IMC representatives argued that MOPT had granted permission for them to install the billboards beginning in 2010, and that the company had been clear from the start that they were electronic devices. IMC said they may sue to turn the billboards back on, according to IMC legal adviser Jonathan Picado.In its rulings, the Sala IV evaluated reports by the University of Costa Rica’s National Structural Materials and Models Laboratory (LANAMME) that backed citizen complaints, according to Vinicio Barboza, head of MOPT’s Inspection and Demolition Department. Sala IV justices also noted that the country has no regulations governing these types of advertising devices, and until that happens, permits should not be granted for their use.The report submitted by LANAMME Director Alejandro Navas states that the billboards’ “extreme brightness and luminosity levels are evident and could be a distraction for driver visibility.”“This office recommends, for the safety of motorists, a ban on these types of screens until technical criteria can be used to justify their approval or rejection,” the report added.The Sala IV’s decision, however, does not affect similar electronic screens used by the Roadway Safety Council to report accidents, traffic jams and other information along several highways, as justices considered these devices provide a public service to motorists.Barboza also said his department currently is conducting inspections of other electronic billboards, including those located near the Juan Santamaría International Airport in Alajuela, and others near the toll booth in Escazú, southwest of the capital.

CARACAS, Venezuela –Here are some facts about Venezuela, whichvotes on Sunday in elections that could see the opposition win control of the legislature:HistoryExplorer Christopher Columbus reached the Caribbean shores of what is now Venezuela in 1498. The country declared independence from colonial power Spain in 1810 under national hero Simón Bolívar. After decades of wars, coups and dictatorships, it entered a period of two-party democracy in 1958.PoliticsNicolás Maduro was elected president in 2013 after his predecessor and mentor Hugo Chávez died. The legislature is the single-chamber, 167-seat National Assembly. The broad opposition alliance Democratic Unity Roundtable is contending for seats with Maduro’s United Socialist Party of Venezuela and other minor allies.
