Creative Inspiration: The Power of Thinking Differently

first_imgBe inspired by these creatives!  Boost your own creativity and productivity by thinking differently.The point of this post is hopefully to inspire you to not only think differently, but act differently and in acting differently create better work. I’ve pulled together a few of my most recent inspiring finds (in the hope that they’ll inspire you as much as they have me) to think, act and do differently…more creatively and more productively. The original inspiration for this post came from a story I read about the design simplicity for a juice box in Japan:Design Thinking“Rule of thumb: if you think something is clever and sophisticated beware-it is probably self-indulgence.” – Donald A Norman.The first point of inspiration is that of simplicity. In good design, the form and the function are rolled into one seamless, attractive entity. There are no extraneous parts, flourishes or bit and bobs. This banana juice box just looks like a banana-juice-box. It’s pretty perfect. Any extra writing or labels or information would kill the striking simplicity of the design. Its not confusing in anyway.Good design lets the user get straight to using the your product, service or software without reading the manual or asking for help. Apple are famous for their good design and for very good reason:In The Design of Everyday Things by Donald A Norman (which is one of 5 books for creatives that everyone should read) he points out that by simplifying design we can clearly communicate to the user what they need to do to use a product.As a film editor this call for simplicity makes me think that I can add all the flashy graphics, cool looking color grade and sound effects I want, but if the story in its simplest form doesn’t work, the rest doesn’t matter. Less is still more. What would it look like to strip what you create, down to its simplest form?Re-Thinking ThinkingI was reading recently about the process of adapting to living in New York that a post production guy was going through, after moving to the US office of one of my favorite London production companies. Having to downsize dramatically not only required thinking simply but also creatively. For a flavor of what I mean, check out this intensely creative use of 420 square feet of New York real-estate:So often I find myself thinking that I need more stuff – tools, plugins, gadgets and gizmos to get more work done. But really I just need to make the most of what I already have with some thoughtful, creative re-thinking. By re-thinking I mean forcing myself to look at what I do in a whole new light. How can I make small tweaks to what I do day to day that would make me much more productive and creative?Templates and presets spring to mind as my video editing equivalent of fold-away furniture. Sure it might only take me a few minutes a couple of times a day to throw something through a compression program to make a client’s email-sized video file. But that’s still exporting the master file, opening Compressor, setting the parameters, hitting submit, opening the batch monitor and waiting for the file, finding the file and copying it to the Dropbox folder (or uploading via WeTransfer), copying the public link and pasting that into an email.So I’ve made myself an automator solution that does it all for me.  All I have to hit is ‘export’ and walk away. Sometime later I’ll get an email that I can then easily forward to my client. If building that kind of thing sounds too complex then a simple droplet on your desktop could do away with half of your work in one move.Taking the time to re-think what you do is the most valuable time you can spend. Find the things you do regularly and see if you can think of a better way of doing them, streamlining your processes. It could be incredibly simple things like mapping new keyboard shortcuts in your creative program of choice or building a template invoice for each client or whatever your equivalent is. Taking the time to re-think will most always be worth it.Outward ThinkingRon Finley is an incredibly inspiring gardener whose art is to take over public spaces and make them fruitful again:Ron Finley plants vegetable gardens in South Central LA — in abandoned lots, traffic medians, along the curbs. Why? For fun, defiance, beauty and to offer some alternative to fast food in a community where “the drive-thrus are killing more people than the drive-bys.”I find Ron’s story to be both an inspiration and a provocation. An inspiration to dust off my window boxes and try to persuade them to once again sustain fruitful and useful life – herbs for the scent and the flavor – and a provocation to be creative in ways that are outside of my ‘normal’ creative field.Creativity is a habit that grows through being fed, nurtured and worked. Finding creative sources that inspire and provoke you, but originate from outside of your usual sphere will bring in fresh insights (in a cross pollinating way – to really stretch the gardening metaphor) and fresh challenges to your creative work. Open up your thinking to what’s happening outside.last_img read more

Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul tender unconditional apology to BCCI’s show cause notice

first_imgSuspended cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul have tendered unconditional apologies to the seven-day show cause notice issued to them by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).Both the players were asked to return home from the Australia tour following the suspension order.The Committee of Administrators (CoA) Chairman Vinod Rai has now referred the matter to BCCI CEO Rahul Johri, who will investigate the case further. Johri is supposed to submit his findings in no more than 15 days.”Yes, Hardik and Rahul have submitted their reply to the fresh showcause notices that were served to them. They have tendered unconditional apology. The CoA chief has instructed the CEO to conduct an inquiry as per clause 41 (c) of the new BCCI constitution,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on conditions of anonymity.As per new constitution, ombudsman is to adjudicate the CEO’s findings. The next Supreme Court hearing is on January 17, which is when an ombudsman could be appointed. If the court does not do so, Vinod Rai wants to appoint an ad-hoc ombudsman.Meanwhile, the BCCI state units have written to acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary to call for a Special General Meeting (SGM) for the appointment of the Ombudsman of the BCCI to adjudicate the case, once the investigations are complete.Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul had appeared on the celebrity chat show Koffee with Karan where the duo made misogynistic comments and drew the ire of the entire nation.”When I lost my virginity, I came home and said, ‘Main karke aya hai aaj (I had sex today)’. At a party my parents asked me ‘acha tera wala (women) kaun sa hai [who is your interest here?] so I said yeh, yeh, yeh (pointing out women)’ and they were like ‘waah proud of you beta’,” Pandya boasted.advertisementThe 25-year-old also said things like, “I like to watch and observe how they (women) move. I’m little from the black side so I need to see how they move,” when Karan Johar asked him why he doesn’t ask women for their names in nightclubs.Rahul then went on to reveal how they both decide on who gets to date a girl when Karan Johar asked them what happens when both of them like a particular person? “Upto the woman,” Rahul replied.But Pandya interrupted and said, “Nahi nahi aisa kuch nahi hai, talent pe hota hai. Jisko mila woh leke jao. It is on talent.”Pandya later took to Twitter to apologise for his comments but his apology made matters worse as he drew the ire of the entire nation. The BCCI stepped in and issued show cause notices to both players and later suspended them from the Australia and New Zealand series.Also Read | Sreesanth backs Hardik, Rahul: Others have made bigger mistakes but are still playingAlso Read | As Hardik, Rahul stand suspended, BCCI official questions Harmanpreet in fake degree controversyAlso Read | How Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul got into trouble for Koffee with Karan: A timelinelast_img read more

Samsung Galaxy A20 vs Galaxy M20: Price in India, specs and features compared

first_imgSamsung has a handful of affordable phones in India right now. The company has been rapidly expanding its portfolio this year, launching the Galaxy M-series in January and a revamped Galaxy A-series in February. As of now, Samsung has launched the Galaxy A10, Galaxy A30, Galaxy A50 (Review), Galaxy M10 (Review), Galaxy M20 (Review) and Galaxy M30 (Review) India, all of which range from Rs 5,000 to Rs 20,000. On Friday, Samsung added the Galaxy A20 to the list.The Galaxy A20 joins a pretty crowded portfolio of affordable Samsung phones, and it is inevitable that the phone will overlap with a few existing Samsung devices. Once the Galaxy A20 goes on sale starting April 10, consumers are going to have to decide between it and the Galaxy M20, for example. The Galaxy A20 and Galaxy M20 are priced close to each, which begs the question of how the two phones compare. We help break it down for you.Samsung Galaxy A20 vs Galaxy M20: Price in IndiaThe Galaxy M20 comes in two variants with the base model starting at Rs 10,990. This is the version with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The second variant with a 4GB + 64GB configuration is priced at Rs 12,990. The Galaxy A20 is priced similar to the top-end variant of the Galaxy M20.The Galaxy A20 has been launched at Rs 12,490 in India. It only comes in a single 32GB storage version paired with 3GB of RAM. Both the phones are offered in Blue and Black colours, but the Galaxy A20 gets an extra Red colour option as well.advertisementSamsung Galaxy A20 vs Galaxy M20: Design and specsThe Galaxy A20 shares similar design traits with the Galaxy M20. Both the phones sport edge-to-edge Infinity-V waterdrop displays on the front and a 3D glasstic rear panel. They both come with a fingerprint sensor on the back and dual camera setup on the top left corner. They also come with a Type-C port, 15W fast charging support and headphone jack. Galaxy M20When it comes to the display, the Galaxy A20 gets a slightly bigger 6.4-inch screen compared to the 6.3-inch screen on the M20. The A20 also gets a Super AMOLED panel which should offer vibrant colours and deep blacks as Samsung’s panels are known for. The Galaxy M20 gets an LCD panel, but it benefits by delivering a sharper FHD+ (2340×1080) resolution as opposed to the HD+ (1560×720) resolution on the Galaxy A20. Additionally, the Galaxy M20 is Widevine L1 certified for HD streaming, while Samsung is yet to confirm the same for the Galaxy A20.The Galaxy M20 also gets a chipset advantage over the Galaxy A20. While the the Galaxy A20 gets a 1.6GHz Exynos 7884 processor, the Galaxy M20 is powered by a faster and more capable 1.8GHz Exynos 7904 SoC based on a 14nm process.When we reviewed the Galaxy M20, we said the Exynos 7904 offers a smooth performance and is capable of running games like PUBG without hiccups in its default graphic settings. At Rs 12,999, the M20 also gives you a little more memory and twice the storage as the Galaxy A20. Both the phones support storage expandability up to 512GB via a microSD card.Notably, the two phones share the same camera setup. The dual camera system on both the phone include a 13MP primary camera with f/1.9 primary sensor and a 5MP f/2.2 ultra wide-angle camera. They also come with a similar 8MP front-facing camera.When it comes to battery, the Galaxy M20’s massive 5,000mAh is capable of taking you through two days on a single charge. The Galaxy A20, on the other hand, houses a smaller 4,000mAh battery, but it is still significant and should deliver over a full day worth of battery life.Lastly, the Galaxy A20 gets an edge in software as it has been launched with the latest One UI based on Android 9 Pie. One UI, as you may know, offers a redesigned interface with a focus on offering interactive elements on the bottom half of the screen for easy one-handed use. One UI also brings a system-wide dark mode. The Galaxy M20 ships with Android Oreo with Experience UI 9.5 on top.ALSO READ | Samsung Galaxy A20 with AMOLED display, One UI launched in India: Price, specs and availabilityALSO READ | Samsung Galaxy M20 review: Great display, superb battery life make for a good startlast_img read more

Purchase of three icebreakers turns Canadas August trade surplus into a deficit

first_imgOTTAWA – The summertime purchase of three ships from Sweden has wiped out Canada’s healthy trade surplus for August and replaced it with a deficit, Statistics Canada said Friday.The agency made the revision to the August trade figures as it accounted for a $600-million acquisition of three icebreakers late in the month.The $526-million trade surplus initially reported for August now shows a $551-million deficit. The change represents a swing in the trade balance of more than $1 billion.Behind the August revision was a $981-million increase in Canada’s imports.“Most of this revision was due to the import of three high value ships, which were reported after the publication of August data,” the agency said of the transaction, which on its own added $598 million to the monthly import number.“Three icebreakers were imported from Sweden at the end of August.”Statistics Canada says smaller revisions to the monthly numbers are common because purchases sometimes come in after the publication of the data. The agency also made upward revisions in August in other categories, including about $100 million for crude oil imports and $100 million for imports of aircraft-related goods.Last month, the Canadian Coast Guard said three interim icebreakers had been purchased for use over the next 15 to 20 years. The government agreed to buy three used icebreakers from Quebec-based Davie Shipbuilding for $610 million.On average, the existing coast guard ships are more than 35 years old and have lost hundreds of operational days over the past few years due to mechanical breakdowns.Statistics Canada also released its latest merchandise trade numbers that showed the country’s trade deficit with the world narrowed to $416 million in September as imports fell 0.4 per cent and exports dipped 0.2 per cent.The report said Canadian trade with countries other than the United States declined as imports dropped 3.3 per cent and exports slid 1.8 per cent. Its trade deficit with these countries decreased to $5.2 billion to from $5.6 billion in August.Canada’s trade surplus with the U.S., by far its biggest trading partner, narrowed in September to $4.8 billion, from $5 billion. Imports into Canada from the U.S. increased 1.2 per cent, while exports south of the border rose 0.4 per cent.Follow @AndyBlatchford on Twitterlast_img read more

JOHN, B.C. – The North Peace Secondary School is showing their support for the family and friends of those that lost their lives in the fatal Humboldt Bronco bus crash which happened April, 6th, 2018.Jersey Friday is an opportunity for teachers and the student body to wear a Jersey to show support.Emma Lavigne, NPSS Student Body Council Member said ” As a school, we have so much influence within our community and a chance to make an impact.

Polish First Ladys Trump Snub Goes Viral

Rabat – There are those who will say he had it coming, but US President, Donald Trump, could not hide his surprise when Poland’s First Lady very publicly refused to shake his hand during his official state visit on Thursday.In a bright red suit that made her impossible to be mistaken for someone else, Poland’s first Lady, Agata Kornhauser-Duda, has become the star of a new video taking social media by storm.As the video plays, Trump and US First Lady, Melania, are being greeted by the Polish President, Andrzej Duda. Trump can be seen clearly stepping forward to greet the First Lady of Poland. Instead of accepting his handshake, however, Kornhauser-Duda deliberately strides in front of Trump to offer Melania a warm greeting.Left somewhat on his own for a few seconds, Trump’s expression speaks for itself.Trump’s greetings of heads of state have been the subject of much social media furor since he took office in January. Each awkward handshake is anticipated with great curiousity and scrutinized mercilessly.Also the subject of much social media speculation, has been Trump’s very public history of vitriolicconfrontations with women, earning him a reputation as a bully and a misogynist.Kornhauser-Duda’s side-stepping of Trump will surely go down as one of the most obvious snubs any US President has suffered while carrying out his official duties. read more

South Sudan among recipients of UN grants to end violence against women

“Violence against women is a human rights and public health emergency,” Michelle Bachelet, Executive Director of UN Women, said of the 15th batch of annual grants from the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women (UN Trust Fund) which awarded $17.1 million for 22 initiatives.“But it is not inevitable. With sufficient political will, funding, and carefully developed and targeted programmes, violence against women can be significantly reduced. Through its support, the UN Trust Fund helps key stakeholders do just that.”The grants will support innovative and practical work at the grassroots level, covering a range of strategic interventions, such as increasing the access of women survivors of violence to medical and legal services in Iraq and supporting HIV-positive women to connect with traditional leaders in Malawi to counter widespread stigmatization and abuse.In South Sudan, the American Refugee Committee (ARC) will assist the Government in developing guidelines for the clinical management of rape and a secure information management system to collect timely data on incidents of violence, while in Mexico, an observatory of 48 women’s groups will standardize protocols for criminal investigation of the killing of women and generate procedures for targeted police interventions.In Kenya, Rwanda, and Sierra Leone, Sonke Gender Justice Network and the MenEngage country networks will engage men and boys to prevent violence against women in their communities.In Indonesia, Rifka Annisa will support implementation of the country’s Domestic Violence Eradication Act through ensuring that religious courts apply the law in their decisions.Other initiatives receiving grants seek to reduce workplace violence in export-oriented garment factories in Bangladesh and India, and accelerate the channels of justice and health services for survivors of violence in Uruguay.The UN Trust Fund is the only multilateral grant-making mechanism exclusively devoted to supporting local and national efforts to end violence against women and girls. The majority of its grantees are non-governmental organizations (NGOs), with grants also awarded to governments and UN country teams.Applications to the fund continue to increase and this year alone, it received more than 2,500 applications requesting nearly $1.2 billion for projects in 123 countries. To meet the growing need for resources to translate global and national commitments into action, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign has set a target to raise $100 million for the fund’s annual grant-making by 2015.“Over the years, the UN Trust Fund has established itself as a leading source of support for innovative and catalytic projects, combating violence where it matters most, at the local and community levels,” Ms. Bachelet said. “If not for the tireless efforts of its grantees, tens of thousands of women and girls would not see justice for the abuse they suffer, nor would they know that they don’t have to live in fear.”The new grants were made possible with support from Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, Austria, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Liechtenstein, the Netherlands, Spain, and the United States.The fund is also financially supported by partners in the private and nonprofit sectors, including the Avon and Avon Foundation for Women; Johnson & Johnson; the UN Foundation; M*A*C AIDS Fund; UN Women National Committees in Canada, Iceland, Japan, and the United Kingdom; and Zonta International and Zonta International Foundation. 28 September 2011Newly independent South Sudan is among 34 countries awarded grants today by a United Nations that seeks to end violence against women, along with another first-time recipient, Iraq. read more

Eurozone backs Greek reform plan and fourmonth extension

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greece secured a four-month extension of its financial rescue on Tuesday when its euro zone partners approved a reform plan that backed down on key leftist measures and promised that spending to alleviate social distress would not derail its budget.Finance ministers sealed the decision in a one-hour telephone conference convened by Eurogroup chairman Jeroen Dijsselbloem after the new leftist-led Athens government sent him a detailed list of reforms it plans to implement by July.“Following Eurogroup teleconference decision, national procedures for extension of the Greek programme can begin,” Valdis Dombrovskis, the European Commission vice-president for the euro, said on Twitter.The ministers reviewed a six-page document signed by Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis that watered down campaign promises to halt privatisations, boost welfare spending and raise the minimum wage, vowing to consult partners before key reforms and to keep them budget-neutral.Both the European Commission and the International Monetary Fund called the Greek letter “sufficiently comprehensive to be a valid starting point for a successful conclusion of the review”.In a statement, the 19-nation Eurogroup urged Greece to develop and broaden the list of reform measures, based on «the current arrangement» – a euphemism for the bailout agreement which leftist Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras had vowed to scrap.In a foretaste of tough negotiations to come, IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said the reform plan was ‘not very specific’ and much clearer assurances would be needed on key reforms of pensions, taxation and privatisation.And Slovak Finance Minister Peter Kazimir, reflecting deep scepticism among northern European fiscal haws, said: “Greeks have lots of heavy lifting to do until end-April. We all want to see numbers now.”Financial markets surged even before confirmation of the extension of the 240 billion euro EU/IMF bailout, saving Greece for now from an imminent banking collapse, state bankruptcy and a possible disorderly exit from the euro zone.The country’s longer-term financial future remains uncertain with Dijsselbloem telling the European Parliament the euro zone’s most heavily indebted member is likely to need further assistance after two bailouts since 2010.Markets rallyThe Greek letter pledged not to reverse ongoing or completed privatisations, and to ensure that the fight against what the government calls the humanitarian crisis caused by austerity “has no negative fiscal effects”.The six-page document, seen by Reuters, contained few figures but promised to improve tax enforcement, fight corruption and “review and control spending in every area of government spending”.Greek financial markets, which reopened for the first time since Friday’s outline deal between Varoufakis and euro zone finance ministers, rallied strongly on relief that a meltdown had been averted for now.Government bond yields dropped by three percentage points and stocks hit a 2-1/2 month high due even though the country’s longer-term survival in the single currency remains uncertain.Dijsselbloem, who is also Dutch finance minister, told the European Parliament that Athens was likely to need a further aid programme when the four months expires, saying: “I think we need to consider further support for Greece.”The euro zone could consider further debt relief measures if Athens met all the criteria specified in its November 2012 second bailout, “which hasn’t happened yet”, he said.Dijsselbloem insisted a Greek exit from the euro zone had not been discussed and was not on the table, adding that the only government to have held a meeting to prepare for a possible ‘Grexit’ was in non-euro Britain.In EU paymaster Germany, Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, who took the toughest line in the Greek negotiations, wrote to the speaker of the lower house of parliament requesting a vote this week on extending the bailout.Germany’s rejection of an initial Greek request for a six-month loan extension forced Athens into a string of politically sensitive concessions, postponing or backing away from campaign promises to reverse austerity, scrap the bailout and end cooperation with the «troika» of EU, ECB and IMF inspectors.The letter said Greece would phase in collective bargaining with a view to raising minimum wages over time but promised that any changes would be agreed with its partners.While Tsipras has won broad support in his coalition for the deal clinched in Brussels, some hardline leftists have criticised it and the conservative opposition has charged that his illusions have been punctured.In a televised address on Saturday, Tsipras called the tentative accord a victory for Greece, but participants said Athens was isolated in the talks and forced to make humiliating concessions because its banks were running out of cash.Latvia’s central bank governor, a member of the ECB’s policymaking governing council, cast doubt on elements of the Greek reform plan, such as tackling tax evasion and smuggling, questioning how much extra revenue they would raise.“Those are soft measures, which may partly fill the budget gaps in the short-term, but (in the case of Latvia) nobody planned or budgeted it as permanent revenues,» Ilmars Rimsevics told state broadcaster LTV.Commenting on ongoing negotiations with Greece, he said: “For Europe, in a certain way, fatigue has set in, and this nursing and instructing all the time is also very burdensome.”Source: Reuterslast_img read more

State Takes Control of Nursing Facility Citing Repeated Violations

first_imgIt’s been a week since the State of Alaska took the rare step of assuming control of Prestige Nursing home in Anchorage. State inspectors found dozens of violations during a visit to the facility. And the state says the nursing home had plenty of prior warning that it needed to improve.Over the past two years, state inspectors have spent a lot of time inside Prestige Care and Rehabilitation Center of Anchorage. The facility has logged four times the number of complaints as Providence Extended Care, a similarly sized nursing home in the city.Download Audio:So for the nursing home’s annual recertification review earlier this month, state and federal inspectors decided to show up on a Sunday morning, unannounced. Margaret Brodie is the state’s director of health care services.“We typically don’t go in on a Sunday but we did in this instance, because anything that was wrong would show on a Sunday,” she says.The inspectors talked to administrative staff, they pored through patient records and interviewed every single one of Prestige’s 98 residents. The investigation took about a week. And the results were alarming. Brodie says inspectors found 50 violations, eight in the most severe category: immediate jeopardy.“We were surprised at the number,” she says. “It was extremely high.”At the end of the inspection the department decided to take the unusual step of assuming temporary management of the facility. The inspection report is not yet public. In the past, Prestige has been cited for things like inadequate nursing care, failing to provide medication to patients, and for numerous problems with call lights and call light response times. Given the volume of complaints against Prestige the health department has investigated over the past two years, Brodie says the company had plenty of warning to correct problems before they escalated to the point of state management.“What’s happened with Prestige is we write up what their issues are, they put in a corrective action plan, and they work it for a while, and then they kind of stop and then they go right back to where they were,” she says. “And I think the reason for that is that they bring in outside help to correct all the deficiencies and then the outside help leaves.”Prestige Care is a for-profit corporation based in Washington state. They own 36 nursing homes across the western U.S. and 42 other senior facilities, like assisted living and independent living homes. They bought the Anchorage facility in 2009, after the state took over management from RainDance Healthcare Group following an inspection that likewise revealed potentially dangerous conditions.Buffy Howard oversees ten nursing homes for Prestige Care in the west. She wouldn’t address whether the company was concerned about the number of complaints the facility has received over the last two years.“There’s not a way to say that there were more complaints than normal but it’s something we continue to look at in quality improvement,” she says. “Each state is different in the amount of citations that are average. Each building is different on what is a normal amount of ‘tags’ so I can’t really comment on the specifics on that.”Prestige has already corrected five of the eight violations the recertification inspection uncovered in the ‘immediate jeopardy’ category. The company has until June 4 to correct the other three, which Howard describes as “overarching” administrative problems. She is confident Prestige will meet the deadline.“We do take these findings very seriously and the safety and welfare of our residents is our priority; it’s always our number one,” she says. “This is a big deal and we understand, and we’ve heard the state and we’re working together, very closely together, to fix and improve.”Margaret Brodie, with the state, says one thing inspectors found is that Prestige didn’t have enough staff to adequately care for patients. In response, she says the company has added another nurse at night. Overall, she’s pleased with the progress Prestige is making. So is Noel Rea, the interim administrator hired by the state to oversee the facility.“Prestige has marshaled a lot of resources in here in terms of training and education and that’s been impressive. And I’ve seen a very clear and visible response to the survey and the decision to put in interim management,” he says.Prestige will be subject to state and federal fines and is paying for Rea’s salary.Brodie and her staff want to ensure the changes Prestige puts in place to get its full license back won’t evaporate when corporate leaders return to Washington. They’re focusing on making sure local staff are adequately trained to maintain high quality care.last_img read more

However, these varied techniques make it slow (typically 45 minutes), expensive, complex and potentially out of reach for most people in the developing world.In this study, researchers developed and tested a rapid CMR protocol using contrast dye that  measured cardiac structure, function and scarring. The rapid diagnostics worked with existing infrastructure, took 18 minutes and cost $150 per patient resulting in important changes in patient care.“Our CMR strategy was three to five times cheaper than current CMR exams in Peru,” said James C. Moon, M.D., study lead author and professor at Barts Heart Centre, St. Bartholomew’s Hospital in London. “It also can be delivered two to three times faster and is easier than conventional CMR.”Researchers conducted scans on 98 Peruvian patients (average age 52, 60 percent female). Scanning found 26 percent had hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, 22 percent had dilated cardiomyopathy and 15 percent had ischemic cardiomyopathy. Scans also uncovered 12 other pathologies including tumors, congenital heart disease, iron overload, amyloid plaques , genetic syndromes, inflamed vessels, clots and valve disease.Researchers report CMR revealed an unsuspected new diagnosis in 19 percent of patients or led to a change of treatment in 37 percent. In 5 percent, a change in care management was suggested but not delivered due to access barriers (cardiac surgery or device therapy).Researchers found rapid CMR satisfied all imaging needs in 89 percent of patients. In 7 percent where CMR was the first imaging technique performed, no further non-invasive imaging was needed. CMR did not miss any diagnoses initially found by echocardiography, researchers said.“Because the rapid CMR protocol was embedded in clinical care with training and education, it resulted in important and frequent patient management changes that appeared beneficial for both patients and the healthcare system,” said Katia Menacho, Ph.D., study first author and cardiovascular science research fellow at Barts Heart Centre, St. Bartholomew’s Hospital in London. “Lack of resources is not a justification for the absence of key diagnostic tests in the developing world.”In an accompanying editorial, Christopher M. Kramer, M.D., University of Virginia Health System in Charlottesville noted, “To make this proof-of-principle study a reality in much of the developing world, imagers will need to be trained at sites with appropriate scanner technology. Only in this way will an abbreviated protocol for evaluation of cardiomyopathies be implemented. This is an exciting time for the potential of broadening the impact of CMR throughout the developing world.”For more information: Menacho K., Ramirez S., Segura P., et al. INCA (Peru) Study: Impact of Non‐Invasive Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Assessment in the Developing World. Journal of the American Heart Association, Aug. 29, 2018.

News Guide Guam is first US territory with gay marriage

first_img 4 ways to protect your company from cyber breaches Men’s health affects baby’s health too Comments   Share   Top Stories New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies HAGATNA, Guam (AP) — Same-sex couples can begin applying for marriage licenses next week in Guam, which became the first U.S. territory to legalize gay marriage. A federal judge on Friday struck down the territory’s ban as unconstitutional.___HOW IT HAPPENEDA lesbian couple sued April 13 after a registrar denied them a marriage license because Guam law defines marriage as between two people of the opposite sex. RECORDING HISTORYIn a rare occurrence for federal court proceedings, the arguments in Guam’s gay marriage case were videotaped.Both sides agreed to the recording, which was done as part of a pilot program that involves 14 courts across the nation.The public will be able to view the hearing online for free in a few business days at: ABOUT GUAMAbout 160,000 people live on Guam, an island about 3,800 miles west of Hawaii.Its residents are U.S. citizens, but they don’t have the right to cast ballots for the country’s president.The territory elects a delegate to the U.S. House, but the delegate is not allowed to vote on legislation. Guam has no representation in the U.S. Senate.___This story has been corrected to say that couples can begin applying at 8 a.m. Tuesday, not 9 a.m.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. WHAT ABOUT THE HIGH COURT?The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to rule on gay marriage later this month.However, Tydingco-Gatewood previously decided against postponing Guam’s lawsuit until after the high court’s ruling.“It’s probably the only case in history where you have a decision one way or another and then a final decision coming within weeks — literally within weeks,” said Michael Phillips, the outside attorney hired to represent Calvo.Currently gay couples can marry in 36 states, the District of Columbia and Guam.___OPPOSITION, SUPPORTAbout 80 percent of Guam residents are Catholic, and a church official there blasted Tydingco-Gatewood’s decision.Guam Archbishop Anthony Apuron said in a statement the ruling “is not only a defeat for Christian principles, but a defeat for our island and the whole of humanity.”Meanwhile, one openly gay member of the Guam Legislature hailed the ruling and said he only wished it happened sooner.“I always felt this is the civil rights issue of the 21st century, and that this is a fundament right,” said Benjamin Cruz, vice speaker of the Legislature and a retired justice.___ Loretta M. Pangelinan, 28, and Kathleen M. Aguero, 29, based their lawsuit on a 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision in favor of same-sex marriage. The U.S. District Court of Guam falls under the 9th Circuit.The next day, Attorney General Elizabeth Barrett-Anderson directed officials to immediately begin processing same-sex marriage applications, but the territory — backed by Gov. Eddie Calvo — balked.Barrett-Anderson hired outside attorneys to represent Calvo in the lawsuit since she believed Guam should recognize gay marriage.___NOW WHAT?U.S. District Court Chief Judge Frances M. Tydingco-Gatewood gave the territory a couple of days to prepare to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Couples can begin applying at 8 a.m. Tuesday.Pangelinan and Aguero plan to marry June 20, their lawyer said.Calvo called on all Guam residents to move forward now that the court has ruled.“I ask that we all come together despite our differences of opinion, united in our common love of Guam and of each other,” the territorial governor said.He also directed members of his cabinet to look at other regulations that might need to change because of the ruling.___ Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall How Arizona is preparing the leader of the next generation Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Sponsored Stories FILE – This April 8, 2015 file photo Loretta M.
