The meeting, chaired in Tbilisi, the capital, by Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative for Georgia, Heidi Tagliavini, discussed security-related issues, refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs), and social and economic matters.Also participating in Monday’s meeting were representatives of Russia as facilitator, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), and the so-called Group of Friends of the Secretary-General – Germany, Russia, United Kingdom, France and the United States – who are seeking to promote a peaceful solution.The Council had not met since 2001, with various proposed gatherings cancelled at the request of one side or the other. Monday’s meeting adopted a protocol that envisages concrete dates of meetings of the Council’s three working groups in May and June.The UN Observer Mission in Georgia (UNOMIG), which consists of some 130 uniformed personnel supported by more than 100 international civilian personnel and 184 local civilian staff, was established in 1994 after an accord reached in Moscow ended the fighting in Georgia’s north-western corner. The Security Council extended its mission for a further six months in March.In his most recent report on Georgia, Mr. Annan stressed the need for both sides to build on February’s UN-chaired talks in Geneva involving the Group of Friends, which called for confidence-building measures between the parties. read more
by The Associated Press Posted Aug 21, 2013 6:17 am MDT Lowe’s 2Q results top analysts’ estimates, lifts full-year earnings, revenue forecasts AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Lowe’s second-quarter net income rose 26 per cent as Americans feeling good about sprucing up their homes again snapped up indoor and outdoor home products and supplies.The second-largest home-improvement chain’s results beat Wall Street expectations. It also raised its full-year earnings and revenue forecasts Wednesday, and the stock rose $1.73, or 3.9 per cent, to close at $45.81.The strong performance comes a day after rival Home Depot Inc.’s results also topped analysts’ estimates and it lifted its outlook. It shows that as home values improve Americans are stepping up home improvement projects.“Home improvement demand was strong during the quarter,” said Lowe’s CEO Robert Niblock. “We drove a healthy balance of ticket and transaction growth, and delivered solid performance across all product categories.”After slumping for years, the housing market has shown choppy but steady improvement this year. On Friday, the Commerce Department said that builders began work on houses and apartments at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 896,000 in July. That was up 6 per cent from June, though below a recent peak of more than 1 million in March.And on Thursday the National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo builder sentiment index reported that confidence among U.S. homebuilders is at its highest level in nearly eight years, fueled by optimism that demand for new homes will drive sales growth into next year.Still, there are indications that rising mortgage rates may give potential buyers a reason to pause.For the period ended Aug. 2, Lowe’s earned $941 million, or 88 cents per share. That’s up from $747 million, or 64 cents per share, a year ago.Revenue increased 10 per cent to $15.71 billion from $14.25 billion.Analysts surveyed by FactSet expected earnings of 79 cents per share on revenue of $15.07 billion.Revenue at stores open at least a year climbed 9.6 per cent, the biggest increase since 2004. This metric is a key indicator of a retailer’s health because it excludes results from stores recently opened or closed.Lowe’s has revamped its pricing structure, offering what it says are permanent low prices on many items across the store instead of fleeting discounts. It has also focused on hiring more workers and improving its inventory.ISI analyst Greg Melich said it was Lowe’s best quarter in a while, and while Lowe’s should benefit from the rising tide of housing recovery, its execution will be key. He kept his “Buy” rating on the stock.Lowe’s now anticipates fiscal 2013 earnings of about $2.10 per share, with revenue up approximately 5 per cent. The company previously predicted earnings of about $2.05 per share, with revenue up approximately 4 per cent. Based on 2012’s revenue of $50.52 billion, the new outlook implies about $53 billion in revenue.Wall Street expects earnings of $2.10 per share on revenue of $52.17 billion.Lowe’s announced Tuesday that its acquisition of Orchard Supply Hardware has received approval from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware.Orchard is a Sears spinoff that filed for bankruptcy in June. That same month the San Jose, Calif., company received an approximately $205 million offer from Lowe’s Cos. for 72 of its stores. The “stalking horse” bid also included the assumption of payables owed to nearly all of Orchard’s suppliers.Lowe’s expects to close on the buyout by month’s end. Orchard will continue to run as a separate, standalone business. It will keep its brand name, as well as its San Jose headquarters.Lowe’s Cos., based in Mooresville, N.C., had 1,758 stores in the U.S., Canada and Mexico at quarter’s end. read more
If the Internet wasn’t made for porn (which is hard to argue against), then it almost certainly was made for sharing cat pics and videos… which explains Acer’s newest webcam.Gaze with wonder upon the Pawbo+ Wireless Interactive Pet Camera! It’s Acer’s take on 21st century remote pet entertainment, and it’s so much more than just a nannycam for your cat (or dog, Acer’s not opposed to letting them in on the fun).The Pawbo+ is interactive in a couple ways. It’s got a built-in mic and speaker so that you can banter with your pets, but (more importantly) it has a laser pointer that you can remotely control to get them all crazy-like. There’s even an integrated treat dispenser so you can tip your feline or canine pal like you would a Twitch broadcaster, but with kibble instead of currency.Acer says the Pawbo+ features “instant sharing,” though thankfully it’s not something the camera does on its own. It’s actually something you can do in the Pawbo app while you’re watching your pets play, or, say, burglars ransacking your house. Whichever happens to be going on at the time. <> 1/7Pawbo, Acer’s first foray into the world of high-tech cat toys! That’s assuming your cat doesn’t already own their new 21-inch gaming laptop. 1/7The one part of Pawbo your pets actually care about: the treat bin. 1/7You can just set Pawbo down anywhere, or you can securely attach it to a flat surface with a couple of screws. 1/7This cat is wondering why Pawbo isn’t just a plastic bowl full of treats. 1/7Watch out, dog, or Pawbo might spit cat treats at your snoot. 1/7I’m pretty sure this cat is pissed about the presence of Pawbo and is looking to put an end to it. 1/7Additional accessories coming soon, because no one who *really* loves their pet would buy it just ONE $170 connected gizmo. The camera is just the first of many Pawbo products that Acer will be selling. They’re working on a bunch of connected accessories for it, all of which your cat will probably not care about for more than a few minutes a day and even then only when you’re not looking. Then again, maybe my cat doesn’t perform for me because I don’t buy $170 Internet-connected toys for her… read more
“You are amazing!” read a chalked sidewalk message in Medina, Ohio.“Be proud of who you are,” read one in Nashville, Tenn.“Love everyone,” read yet another chalked sidewalk message, this one in Buckingham, Va.Pictures of positive chalked messages — and hearts, rainbows and smiley faces — beamed in Tuesday from all 50 states and Australia, Brazil, Canada, England, India, Mexico, New Zealand and Scotland, to the delight of Vancouver’s Joy Team, which started Chalk the Walks in 2011. This year, more than 4,000 people participated around the world, said Michele McKeag Larsen, who co-founded the nonprofit Joy Team in 2010 with her daughter, Taryn, when her daughter was a student Hough Elementary School.Larsen was pleased to log on to Facebook Tuesday morning and see photographs of chalked messages from far-away places posted on the event’s page. For more than two hours Tuesday, Larsen, her daughter and fellow members of the Junior Joy Team joined others in decorating sidewalks on Main Street in Uptown Village.Unlike graffiti that the Vancouver City Council targeted Monday with new criminal and civil codes, the chalk art was welcomed. Outside of Halo Designs, for example, wrapped pieces of chalk were ready for any passer-by who wanted to join the fun.Jay Morton, 26, drew seven characters from “Chrono Trigger,” a Super Nintendo game.“I tend to draw nerdy stuff,” said Morton, a Hazel Dell resident who usually chalks outside his home and has welcomed the opportunity to participate in the annual Chalk the Walks. read more
As Yukon salmon continue their summer runs, subsistence fishermen continue to express frustration about gear restrictions, closures, and — now — potentially infected fish.Salmon drying on a fish rack. Photo: KNOM file.Download AudioWhen managers and fishermen met for their weekly teleconference on Tuesday, they heard reports of discoloration and pus in chum salmon.“Folks here [are] complaining about summer chums having white patches and pus sacs,” said Marvin in Pilot Station.Basil in Russian Mission added: “A lot of these fish have pus in the meat, so that’s a bummer.”Virgil in Fairbanks described the sings of infection.“Little pockets of pus when you fillet the fish that’ll be about the size of a pea or maybe a little smaller,” he said. “And I know that in warm water, which is what we have right now, ichthyophonus really grows rapidly if the fish is infected.”Stephanie Schmidt, summer season area management biologist for the Yukon for the Alaska Department of Fish & Game, said the parasite ichthyophonus could be the culprit.Nome Fish & Game biologist Jim Menard said ichthyophonus has been found in Yukon Chinook salmon in the past, with severe instances in the 1990s and with more sporadic outbreaks of the parasite through the early 2000s. Menard said the pathogen is not harmful to humans.Schmidt said “yes, ichthyophonus can occur in chums, and warmer water has been associated with prevalence of ichthyophonus in other species. So that is one potential explanation.” She invited fishermen to submit samples for testing.The summer chum run is now estimated at 1.3 to 1.5 million fish, which is average but below Fish & Game’s preseason predictions. The first pulses are passing through Tanana, Koyukuk, and Kaltag, but many stragglers are still lingering in the lower river. Schmidt said that’s led to record numbers for commercial fishermen.“There have been record catches of summer chum salmon with dip nets this year in district one and district two,” she said. “To date, the dip net and beach seine commercial fishery in these lower districts have caught 185,700 summer chum salmon and they’ve released just over 8,000 Chinook salmon.”Meanwhile, subsistence fishing has been a mixed bag. Abundant chums on the lower Yukon have helped fishermen like Joseph in Nunam Iqua to fill his racks.“They had a three-hour subsistence opening on Tuesday, and we were finally able to fish with pride,” he said. “I was able to get 118 chums and six kings, and I was so happy for the kings.”But fishermen upriver have struggled to meet their subsistence needs, citing plenty of activity but little production. Jack in Kotlik said gear restrictions are largely to blame.“I’m not familiar with using a dip net,” he said. “I grew up using gill nets, and I’m not going to switch back to the white man’s way of fishing. I’d rather fish the way that my ancestors fished, so I have to go to Point Romanoff to catch my subsistence fishing. We’re allowed to keep our kings on that side.”Fish & Game is continuing efforts to protect the kings through strategic closures, but Chinook numbers are still weak. Eighty-one thousand kings had passed through Pilot Station by the end of June —about 20,000 thousand fish fewer than the historical average.The possibility for incidental harvest of Chinook has been discussed — and even allowed — for short periods in areas with strong passages of chum. But the general call for immediate release, coupled with gear restrictions, hasn’t allowed for much — which Ellis in Ruby said continues to harm traditional subsistence practices.“Us not having a chance to actually set nets, do the traditional cutting, and whatnot … I see this tradition slowly dying,” he said. “This is very important to my village, and our subsistence needs in my village are not being met at all.”Jack in Kotlik echoed that closures conflict with Native practices.“We grew up eating our staple foods all our lives and now you guys are just making criminals out of Alaska Natives. And I don’t like that,” he said.Schmidt pointed out that Fish & Game is trying to work with fishermen on gear usage and incidental take of Chinook.For instance, she said “there are new regulations in 4A Upper that allow drift net gear during this time of the season. Didn’t want to just limit you to set net gear only. We also — in case anyone does have a fish wheel — are removing the condition that you have to man your fish wheel at all times and release all king salmon.”Schmidt said it’s possible that king escapement goals will be reached this year, but conservative management strategies will continue to ensure that happens. read more
Hyderabad: The State BJP has formed five teams to oversee the party membership drive launched by party chief and Union Home Minister Amit Shah. The development came following Shah’s meeting with key leaders of the State party at a private hotel in Shabad on Saturday night before leaving to Delhi.

Poor are openly expressing their anguish over no word about the construction of double bedroom houses. Advertise With Us Failure of the government in intermediate examination results fiasco has made people feel angry towards the ruling party,” he said. He said Amit Shah would be visiting State every month to strengthen the party to come to power in Telangana in 2023. That apart, every month two Union Ministers would be coming to the State to review the implementation of the Central schemes by the departments concerned. This would expose the expenditure of the Central funds given to the State, the number of people benefitted and the quantum of funds diverted by the State government. Condemning the statements against the party by the TRS leader Gutta Sukhender Reddy, Laxman said, “The TRS which is aligned with Majlis is taking about secularism is a big joke.” He questioned whether TRS chief KCR’s statement of “Hindu-Bondu” is secular. read more

But it is not just the classic in trouble, with WhatsApp and Facebook having announced that they are abandoning Blackberry. Last month, Facebook confirmed it is to drop support for all BlackBerry phones. In an official blog post, Blackberry confirmed that the social media giant will discontinue essential APIs (software applications for its platform), including those in BlackBerry 10 and BBOS, by the end of 2016.The move will mean existing Facebook and WhatsApp apps running on the phones could be affected.The platform said it was ‘extremely disappointed in their decision, as we know so many users love these apps’.Blackberry developers are rallying BB fans to social media to let Facebook know how they feel with the hashtag #ILoveBB10Apps, but it is a long shot indeed. Sales of Blackberry phones have plummeted from record highs of 52 million phones in 2011 to 3.2 million phones sold in 2016.But as sales drop and Blackberry use declines, we ask: “Where do old Blackberry phones go to die?”For us, they have become draw fillers…Tell us what has happened to your old Blackberry… Blackberry are officially killing off their ‘Classic’ handset with its iconic old-school keyboard.

The training videos have been integrated in Volpara’s VolparaEnterprise software that provides a comprehensive assessment of image quality on every screening mammogram.Mammography Educators partnered with Volpara to enhance VolparaEnterprise software with embedded training modules. Designed to improve the quality of breast imaging using proven techniques in mammography positioning, the videos will provide multiple levels of technologist training. Videos will include positioning overviews for the CC and MLO projections as well as for common positioning performance issues. Topics include:Excessive exaggeration;Nipple in profile;Assuring adequate length for the posterior nipple line;Inframammary fold; andThe length and shape of pectoralis muscle.”Proper breast positioning is critical for optimal cancer detection, but difficult to assess manually. We are excited to partner with Volpara to make these targeted training videos for more than a dozen common positioning performance issues that can be routinely identified using VolparaEnterprise software,” said Louise Miller, R.T.(R)(M)(ARRT), CRT, FSBI, FNCBC, director of education and co-founder of Mammography Educators. “These videos are designed to help improve image quality in a way that is consistent, reproducible and ergonomically sound.””I expect these videos to help focus our training efforts. I’ve been peer reviewing technologists for many years, providing feedback and tips on such techniques as obtaining the Inframammary fold, with mixed results. Being able to walk through a formal training process from awareness of what the problem is, to discovery, to learning new techniques to having the technologists be able to review her performance based on her own images, can have a real long-term impact. This is a completely different way to drive training results,” said Lori Keiper, clinical specialist and women’s imaging coordinator at St. Luke’s University Health Network, Allentown, Pa.VolparaEnterprise software features a Technologist dashboard, which enables each mammography technologist to monitor her own performance and self-train. In addition, the Lead Technologist now sees a Quality Quadrant diagram that summarizes patient positioning and compression performance by each technologist, helping to identify training opportunities.”We have been using VolparaEnterprise to redefine how to track and trend our technologist’s quality and facility workflow. VolparaEnterprise has provided our institute with amazing objective, analytic capability which has allowed us to applaud the team’s strengths and use them to facilitate collaborative growth, while identifying opportunities that we individualize by technologist. We have seen continued and sustained improvements as a result of this program,” said Maureen Mann, executive director of Boca Raton Regional Hospital’s Christine E. Lynn Women’s Health & Wellness Institute in Florida.VolparaEnterprise software delivers key performance indicators for hundreds of performance and quality metrics, including patient positioning and compression, which are widely viewed as the causes of most clinical image deficiencies and associated with delayed detection of breast cancer. The software enables breast centers to perform rapid quality control checks that help optimize the productivity and efficiency of imaging resources. This in turn helps decrease costs through the reduction of retakes, increase employee effectiveness, and enhance the patient experience.Volpara Solutions will showcase VolparaEnterprise software and its suite of quantitative breast imaging tools, which includes VolparaDensity software,, at the 2018 Society for Breast Imaging (SBI)/American College of Radiology (ACR) Breast Imaging Symposium, April 12-15 in Las Vegas.For more information: www.volparasolutions.com Qlarity Imaging’s software is used to assist radiologists in the assessment and characterization of breast lesions.

A 35-year-old man on Tuesday admitted to causing the death of a British tourist and injuring another in Peyia last year and abandoning them after prosecutors withdrew manslaughter and attempted murder charges.It was the second time since Demetris Ilidzides’ trial started in September last year that prosecutors amended charges in a case which is widely believed to have been a deliberate assault following an altercation.The Georgian national was initially charged with the premeditated murder of Charlie Birch, 39, which he denied. He pleaded not guilty again in January after the charge was downgraded to manslaughter, claiming he hit the two men by accident.Premeditated murder carries an automatic life sentence while manslaughter carries a maximum of life in jail.On Tuesday, Ilidzides pleaded guilty to causing the 39-year-old’s death through reckless driving without deceit and culpable negligence, and injuring a second man, 32.The defendant also admitted to endangering the life of the two men, causing them serious bodily harm, by driving his vehicle in a reckless manner. He also admitted to abandoning the pair without affording them any help.The trial continues on July 18. The defendant will remain in custody.The incident took place in the morning hours of Sunday, June 24.At around 2.30am police were notified that two men, pedestrians, were lying injured on the tarmac on the Peyia-Ayios Georghios road in Paphos.On arriving at the scene, police found the 39-year-old lying dead on the ground. Next to him was another his friend.His friend, identified as ‘Will’ in the British press, was also injured but his condition was not life-threatening. He later told the media he believes the driver deliberately ran them down.The car, which was driven by the suspect who also had his girlfriend with him, was later found abandoned at the Ayios Georghios harbour. It was in the sea and had to be pulled out by the fire service.The suspect and his girlfriend left the harbour on foot and were picked up on the road shortly afterwards by police.Police suspect that dumping the car in the sea was an attempt to conceal evidence.Before the incident, there had been an altercation at a bar in Coral Bay during which the two Britons reportedly tried to defend the woman, who was allegedly being abused by the suspect.Police initially arrested the 23-year-old woman but she was released later as no incriminating evidence turned up against her.You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityReassurance for your refugeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Authorities release five of 12 Israeli rape suspects, seven due in court FridayUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoA new way of doing businessUndoby Taboolaby Taboola read more
