EU symbolically casts a vote for Google to split

first_imgThursday 27 November 2014 9:16 pm THE EUROPEAN parliament yesterday overwhelmingly supported a motion yesterday to have anti-trust regulators break up the popular internet search engine Google by a margin of 384 to 174. The body has no power to break up the net giant, but the vote will send out a clear message about whether politicians want regulators to take a tough line.The vote was proposed by European Parliament members Andreas Schwab, a German conservative, and Ramon Tremosa, a Spanish liberal.“In case the proceedings against Google carry on without any satisfying decisions and the current anti-competitive behaviour contin­ues to exist, a regulation of the dom­inant online web search should be envisaged,” Schwab and Tremosa said in a statement.The vote raises pressure on Margrethe Vestager, the bloc’s recently installed competition commissioner, to speed up a decision on whether to bring formal antitrust charges against Google. That inquiry, begun in 2010, in­volves Google’s dominant position in Europe’s internet search business, and asks whether the company’s search results favour other Google-related services and whether it impedes its competitors’ search-advertising platforms.Vestager, a Danish free-market liberal, replaced Joaquín Almunia, who started the antitrust probe. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryHero WarsThis game will keep you up all night!Hero WarsMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekThe No Cost Solar ProgramGet Paid To Install Solar + Tesla Battery For No Cost At Install and Save Thousands.The No Cost Solar ProgramMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailThe Chef PickElisabeth Shue, 57, Sends Fans Wild As She Flaunts Age-Defying FigureThe Chef PickFungus EliminatorIf You Have Toenail Fungus Try This TonightFungus EliminatorUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementIf Your Dog Eats Grass (Do This Every Day)Ultimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Herald Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.com Sharecenter_img whatsapp EU symbolically casts a vote for Google to split Tom Beck whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

United Airlines will require negative COVID-19 test for flights from London

Detectives say Holzman stolea collection of antique firearms from a relative, then sold them at a local pawn shop for afraction of their value. Fortunately, he used his real driver’s license to conduct the transaction,and when Cape cops found the guns at the store, they were able to quickly trace the theft backto Holzman. After being found guilty of the crime, the 37-year-old spent two and a half monthsbehind bars before being released on state probation. He actually only had about a month anda half left on that term, but now that he’s violated, that probation will likely get extendedsignificantly. To date, he’s been booked seven times in Lee County on charges of grand theft,fraud, contempt, battery/domestic violence, and multiple drug counts. He is 5’7”, 140 pounds, and has multiple tattoos, including a clover with the word “Irish” on his right arm and Japanesesymbols inked on his stomach.Jose RodriguezIn Collier County, deputies are on the hunt for a man wanted on multiple warrants fornarcotics-related charges. Jose Walton Rodriguez has been on the run since December afterviolating the terms of his state probation. This 34-year-old fugitive has a lengthy history of drugtrafficking, as documented in his four local arrests, as well as the seven years he’s spent in thestate penitentiary. In addition to those charges, Rodriguez has also been incarcerated for ahome invasion robbery, evidence tampering, and the sale and delivery of cocaine and ecstasy.He is 5’9”, 165 pounds, with numerous tattoos, including a man holding a baby with “King ofKings” written on his upper left arm. Detectives say Rodriguez is likely to be laying low in eitherthe East Naples area or possibly Golden Gate Estates.Rebecca RomanoLast, but certainly not least, is a woman who has made the irresponsible decision to getbehind the wheel while intoxicated time and time again. Rebecca Romano has already beenconvicted three times before of driving under the influence, yet still has not learned from theerrors of her ways. In her last DUI, she was found slumped over the wheel in a Lehigh Acresneighborhood. When deputies arrived to see if she was OK, Romano mumbled several differentstories, ranging from running out of gas to her need to get her laundry done. After failing aseries of field sobriety tests, deputies found heroin, crack, and several narcotic pills in herpossession. She was promptly arrested for DUI and spent the last three months in lockupbefore regaining her freedom last month. But last week, she was supposed to show up for acourt hearing on the DUI, and instead decided to go on the run. Over the years, Romano hasbeen jailed nine times in Lee County for assault, battery, burglary, resisting, hit and run, and lotsof drug charges. She is 5’4”, 115 pounds, and was last known to be living in downtown FortMyers.

Parents, digital assets and pets the new frontiers of estate planning

Estate plans need to evolve to keep up with changing societal elements, according to the new report released Monday by the BMO Retirement Institute. The report explores three areas that are gaining attention in the area of estate planning: the growing need to ensure the continuity of care for elderly parents, relatives or friends; the accumulation of online property, including financial and non-financial digital assets, among baby boomers; and the changing status of pets in the lives of Canadians. IE Staff Courts could save invalid wills if Ontario bill passes It’s official: marriage no longer revokes a will in Ontario “As our society continues to evolve, the scope of our estate plans needs to widen,” says Tina Di Vito, head, BMO Retirement Institute. “Advancements in technology, the significant role pets play in our lives and the increase in average lifespan mean Canadians must now take into account a number of new elements that, if not properly addressed in your estate plan, may leave your loved ones scrambling.” Caring for aging loved ones As life expectancy continues to rise, an increasing number of boomers are becoming a caregiver to an aging loved one. According to the report, almost 20% of Canadians currently care for an aging parent, with 53% of them providing both personal and financial support. However, if that caregiver dies unexpectedly, and contingencies are not included in the estate plan, the risk of the parent losing quality care could greatly increase. The report found that only one-third of Canadian caregivers have made a provision for their parents in their estate plan. Thirty-nine per cent said they had not included an older parent, relative or friend because the probability of outliving them is too small. “It’s understandable that the idea of including your own parent in an estate plan seems out of the ordinary but, with today’s aging population, it’s necessary,” says Di Vito. “Being proactive is critical in ensuring that your loved ones are well taken care of in the event they outlive you.” Digital assets A growing number of boomers have a personal, professional or financial presence online. This, in turn, has led to an increase in the amount of intangible digital assets that they must manage. Eighty-six per cent of Canadian boomers use at least one financial online tool. They are actively involved in online areas such as finance, social networking and online data collections including photographs and music. However, Canadians have not been addressing these in their estate plans. According to the report, more than half of those with digital property believe it is important to set contingencies in case of one’s incapacity or death. Yet, 58% with digital assets who have made formal estate planning arrangements have not made provisions, with the top reasons being that they did not think of it or they did not think it was necessary. Pet ownership The emotional attachment to a pet can be intense. As seniors live increasingly longer, pet ownership will likely rise, along with the emotional need to ensure pets are cared for after one passes away. Most pet owners would like to guarantee some degree of security for their pets. The report revealed that almost half (49%) of Canadians own a pet, and 76% feel it is important to make arrangements for the ongoing care of their pet. However, only one-third have made an estate planning provision for their pet. Di Vito offers the following estate planning advice to consider: > Have ‘the talk’ To help determine how to include aging parents as beneficiaries in your estate plan, have a frank conversation with your spouse, siblings and parents about how to ensure your parents’ continued care is not at risk. > Think digital Consider consulting your legal advisor about how to safeguard and ensure an orderly distribution of your digital assets to loved ones so they are able to access online financials, close out email and social media accounts and retrieve sentimental digital photos or extensive music collections. > Caring for Fido Consider leaving a reasonable monetary legacy in an estate to a caregiver who could use the funds to care for your pet. Including this provision will minimize the risk of the pet becoming abandoned or given to a shelter. A copy of the full report is available at www.bmo.com/retirementinstitute.

Police Must Take Reports from Citizens

first_imgRelatedPolice Must Take Reports from Citizens RelatedPolice Must Take Reports from Citizens FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Citizens are being reminded that they ought not to be turned away from any police station they attend to report incidents, no matter where they occur.“Police personnel are required by law to accept reports of incidents within and outside the station’s operational boundaries,” Head of the Constabulary Communications Network (CCN), Karl Angell, told JIS News in an interview.The reminder follows complaints that the police at some stations have been refusing to take statements or respond to matters being reported, on the ground that the incidents being reported occurred outside the station’s operational boundaries.Mr. Angell pointed out that this practice is not only unlawful, but it could retard speedy police action and frustrate individuals seeking police intervention.“With respect to motor vehicle accidents, the Road Traffic Act provides that the parties may report the accident to any policeman or woman anywhere in the island within 24 hours of the accident,” he said.He advises that no citizen must be redirected from the station to which he is making the report, to another police station, whether the report is about a crime or an offence that has been committed, or assistance that is being sought.“The citizen’s report or request must be taken and recorded. Where it is necessary to record a statement at the time the report is made, this must be done at the station at which the report was first made,” he explained.This latest reminder forms part of the public education and awareness programme of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF).

Class of 2017: After three daughters graduate, mom finishes degree

first_imgSalazar also raised four daughters alongside Gary Salazar, her husband of 34 years, and the couple watched proudly as their three eldest graduated from CU Boulder, one by one. Tachara, 30, received a bachelor’s degree in ethnic studies in 2009; Kalee, 28, followed with bachelor’s degrees in environmental studies and ethnic studies in 2012; and Cibonet, 23, earned bachelor’s degrees in history and ethnic studies in 2015.Yet, even as Salazar racked up accolades and forged stronger community ties, the New Mexico native still harbored one unmet goal: the bachelor’s degree she had started working on in 1981.“It was always in the back of my head bothering me,” Salazar says. “When I would write my name, or people would see my bio—I wanted that degree. After our third daughter graduated, I told my husband, ‘I’m going back to school.’”On April 29, more than a dozen American Indian students participated in a graduation ceremony hosted by the Center for Native American and Indigenous Studies (CNAIS) at the Koenig Alumni Center. Among the honorees was Salazar, who wrapped herself in a black-and-ivory “Los Ojos” Pendleton wool blanket to honor her family and her tribe. After all, her parents, her husband, her children and her New Mexico and Colorado communities were instrumental as she walked on a path to higher education success.“Education was always a very key privilege for my family, and for my husband’s family. It was something we needed to go and do. It was always the mindset that you needed a college degree so you could have further opportunities,” Salazar says.Of note:According to institutional data, it is rare for those over the age of 25—often referred to as “nontraditional students”—to attend college at traditional four-year universities such as CU Boulder, which makes Salazar’s achievement all the more impressive.On commencement day May 12, Salazar, 54, will receive a bachelor’s degree in communication some 36 years after she set out to study at CU Boulder, leaving behind Taos, New Mexico, and the Santa Ana Pueblo—the Tamaya Reservation or “the rez.’”Stories like Salazar’s inspire David Aragon, assistant vice chancellor for the university’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Community Engagement (ODECE). She symbolizes the growing number of adult learners returning to college to reclaim lost dreams, explore new opportunities or cross long-held goals from their bucket lists.Like Salazar, Aragon was participating in a summer program for first-generation students in the 1980s when the two met and became lifelong friends. When his former classmate returned to college after raising a family, he introduced her to CU LEAD Alliance and the CMCI Diversity Scholars Program. Aragon also served as a mentor to Salazar’s daughters when they were undergraduate students.“It was wonderful to see Ime embrace the opportunity to be a student again,” Aragon says. “I would encourage other students like her to pursue their educational goals. It’s never too late. In my experience, learning is much more interesting when you are older and bring your life experience with you.”Salazar said returning to college to complete her degree was easy. Getting used to how things had changed on campus was another matter. She’d left college in 1984 during her junior year after she and her husband, whom she met at CU, learned they were going to be first-time parents.A lot had changed over the years, but she was ready to test herself as a nontraditional student in 2016. She learned new technologies, got used to being older than some of her professors, and resisted the urge to dominate class discussions because she had seen so much, done so much and had a lot of takeaways to share with classmates who were younger than her children.“You have to totally check in and really set your mind to it, especially with children,” says Salazar. “I had to be fully engaged. I went back full time, and that’s all I did. I had to be on campus, immersed and going to classes. I basically treated it like a work day.”Her middle child, Kalee, said that she and her sisters are proud of the example their mother has set for them and other young people in Colorado and New Mexico. Masani, 15, the youngest of the Salazar clan, is a Centaurus High School freshman who is poised to follow the trail blazed by her elders.Kalee said her mother and her father, an electrician and entrepreneur, taught their children that everyone follows a unique path through life, and people can wear many hats while working to make the world a better place – starting in their own communities.“Seeing our mother celebrated for her accomplishments fills our hearts with pride and our eyes with tears of joy,” she says.Meanwhile, Salazar pointed out that her family still attends CU football games and participates in other campus activities. She will always remember those summer days as a young student living in Libby Hall, where she met her future husband and stared down the challenge of being separated from her family for the first time. She’s grateful for the lifelong friends she met in college while working in the community.“Being a part of the CU Boulder community is ingrained in the family dynamic,” she says. “CU has always just been a part of us.”Categories:Students in FocusCampus Community Published: May 5, 2017 • By Deborah Méndez Wilson Patrita “Ime” Salazar wears a ceremonial “Los Ojos” wool blanket as she poses with her daughters, left to right, Kalee, Tachara and Cibonet during an April 29 graduation reception hosted by the Center for Native American and Indigenous Studies.

Scientists to develop pain-free device to detect oral cancer

This, in turn, could provide better outcomes for patients and significant cost savings for the NHS.The pioneering device is to be developed with medical device diagnostics company Zilico, born out of a partnership between the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust – using the same patented technology as its ZedScan device, which is now in use in the NHS for the early and non-invasive diagnosis of cervical cancer.Researchers from the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals previously demonstrated that the principle of its electrical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) technology, where normal, precancerous and cancerous tissue can be differentiated according to its electrical properties could be useful for detecting oral cancer. The ‘proof of concept’ study involved 47 patients who were recruited from the Charles Clifford Dental Hospital.Typically, suspicious oral lesions are inspected and diagnosed visually, but the visual indicators of the disease can be misleading or non-apparent in some cases. Many other signs and symptoms of mouth cancer such as constant bad breath and difficulty chewing or swallowing can also be caused by other things than cancer, so a definitive diagnosis can only be made through a biopsy of the tissue.The new device could enable patients to receive a real-time diagnosis at the primary point of their care and the University is now working with Zilico to develop a functional prototype to be assessed and trialled for use in the NHS.It is anticipated that the prototype will be ready for testing on a group of volunteers, with the aim to progress the project to a full clinical trial in the next 12 months.Dr Keith Hunter, Professor of Head and Neck Pathology, at the University of Sheffield’s School of Clinical Dentistry and Insigneo Institute for in silico Medicine, said, “Mouth cancer is on the increase in the UK and globally, and we need new tools to be able to diagnose it earlier, as the survival rate for oral cancer patients depends on how early the disease is diagnosed and treated.“Electrical impedance spectroscopy could help us to diagnose oral cancer earlier and more accurately, even when these cell changes may not be visually apparent. This could reduce the need for biopsies where there is no disease indicated – helping us to reduce patient anxiety and improve patient comfort.“Hopefully developing less invasive techniques of diagnosing oral cancer will encourage more people to come forward with oral problems.”Jamie Healey, Lead Clinical Scientist at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said, “We have collaborated with Zilico on the technology developments which form the basis of ZedScan for many years, and we are delighted to see that the clinical applications of electrical impedance spectroscopy are broadening, offering the potential for many more patients to benefit from this novel technology.”To further the scientific evidence and applications for EIS to be used in diagnosing oral cancer, the collaboration has included a diverse range of University departments, including clinicians and researchers from Insigneo, the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) and the Department of Computer Science.This research included Dr Dawn Walker and Dr James Heath from the Department of Computer Science developing cellular and tissue-scale finite element (FE) models to inform the classification of different tissue types based on EIS measurements collected from normal and diseased oral tissue samples.Jim Chilcott, Professor of Healthcare Decision Modelling at ScHARR, said, “Using a whole disease modelling approach we are bringing together the available evidence on oral cancer diagnosis, management and treatment to optimise the design of the new oral device and underpin its diagnostic efficacy.”“An EIS device for the diagnosing of suspected oral cancer has the potential to make an important contribution to the care and management of the disease, quickly removing uncertainty and anxiety for those without cancer and improving the journey to early treatment for those with cancerous and precancerous lesions, Chilcott added.
