No north bound heavy goods vehicles would be allowed to ply on DH Road from DH Road and Judges Court Road crossing and will instead be diverted along Judges Court Road.
VANDERHOOF, B.C. – A logging truck driver in British Columbia was taken by surprise when he saw four legs sticking out of the snow off the side of a road.Wayne Rowley, 54, said he was driving down a forest service road near Vanderhoof last Thursday when what appeared to be a set of moose’s legs in the snow caught his eye.He pulled over to find a calf buried upside down in the snow and at first, Rowley said he thought it was dead.“It lifted its head and looked and me and I thought, ‘Oh, I guess I’ve got to dig you out of here,’” he said.The region had just received a dump of about a metre of snow, Rowley said.He grabbed a shovel and put a rope around the moose’s neck to keep it still while he dug it out.“You’ve got be careful with moose because they’ll kick you,” he said.The animal was shivering and Rowley suspected it may have been going into hypothermia.He called a colleague who had been driving ahead of him and failed to notice the moose to help him get the animal back on its feet.Once it was right-side up again, he said the moose appeared a bit stunned.“He just kind of shook himself and he put his ears forward and then he put his ears back.”Rowley said he’s over six feet tall and the moose, although young, was about as tall as him.He freed the rope from the moose’s neck and after a moment, it walked onto the road and “away he went,” Rowley said.

By Cianan Brennan http://jrnl.ie/3057373 Freddie Thompson Source: Rollingnews.ieFREDDIE THOMPSON, OFTEN known as “Fat Freddie”, a key associate of the Kinahan drug cartel, has been arrested in Dublin.It’s believed that 35-year-old Thompson was arrested this morning while travelling from the north of the country by car.It’s understood that Thompson is being questioned by gardaí in connection with the murder of David Douglas in July 2016.Douglas (53), a father of one, was shot a number of times by a lone gunman as he stood in the doorway of his wife’s shop on Bridgefoot Street in Dublin’s south inner city.The murder of Douglas is believed to be related to the ongoing gangland feud between the Hutch and Kinahan families.He was the ninth fatality in the ongoing feud, a number that has since been added to by the mistaken-identity killing of holidaymaker Trevor O’Neill in Spain in August.Read: Two bodies found at house outside Mayo villageRead: Emergency services at the scene of apartment fire in Clongriffin Share40 Tweet Email1 Short URL 43,766 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article
Spring arrived on Wednesday, and it felt all week like brighter economic times could finally be arriving in Clark County.Gov. Jay Inslee came to town Friday, the latest high-level politician to prod Clark County into supporting the painfully polarizing, but job-rich, Columbia River Crossing project. Inslee took time to visit WaferTech in Camas, raising hopes that the city might land a much-discussed wafer fab plant rumored to be under consideration by WaferTech’s corporate parent, the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.Also last week, entrepreneur David Barton disclosed that his Vancouver startup, a video-editing workflow management company called Epoch Inc., had secured $2 million in venture capital. Barton says the company, with 15 employees, has big growth ambitions and he says he’ll draw on a talent-rich local workforce.A third whiff of possible new jobs came with news that Portland-based telecom company Integra will consider relocating when its lease in the Lloyd District expires next year. The company operates a network operations center in Vancouver. The local connection led to speculation that Integra, with 570 Portland employees, might consider a jump across the Columbia. But that prospect would play out as a repeat of Nike’s purported interest in expanding into Vancouver if Integra is simply hoping to extract incentives from Portland.With Nike, local and even state economic development officials made a big push to attract the Fortune 500 company, but Nike did a fast fade after the Oregon Legislature approved tax code changes the company wanted.Local economic development leaders say they don’t regret their aggressive pursuit of Nike, but they’ve learned some hard lessons from the experience. Alisa Pyzska, Vancouver’s economic development director, says she’ll present recommendations to the City Council next month about establishing “clear and objective criteria” for offering incentives to companies.

A seafood market on Beijing, China. (Photo by Rashah McChesney/Alaska’s Energy Desk)Alaska’s economy could suffer as a result of China’s 25 percent tariff on American seafood imports and that worries U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski.Listen nowChina announced the new import tax Friday in response to U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods. They will take effect July 6.In a written statement, Murkowski urges President Donald Trump to reach a trade policy with China that protects the export market.Congressman Don Young also will ask the administration to ensure Alaska’s seafood industry is protected.Sen. Dan Sullivan did not respond to an inquiry by deadline.Alaska’s congressional delegation wrote Trump in May warning that a trade dispute could prompt China to retaliate against American seafood.Their letter said a tariff could make targeted exports “uncompetitive in an instant.”They also said the Chinese market for premium Alaska seafood is especially important because Russia banned seafood imports in response to U.S. sanctions in 2014.
Those of you enthused by the recent spat of new fighting games, we’re talking Street Fighter IV and BlazBlue, will be pleased to know another much-loved fighting series is making a return.Namco designer Daishi Odashima created a Twitter account on Christmas Day to announce to the world that a new game is in development. The tweet simply said:SC is BACK! Get ready, fans! It was also backed up with an image posted on Twitpic that showed Daishi holding a pen over the easily-recognizable Soul Calbur sword.Here’s hoping for a return by the series on a par with what Capcom has achieved with Street Fighter IV.I still remember countless nights playing the original Soul Calibur on Dreamcast. I’m hoping for more of the same, but using the full power of the PS3 or 360.Read more at Joystiq

Citation: Researchers demonstrate entanglement of two quantum bits inside of a semiconductor (2012, April 13) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-04-entanglement-quantum-bits-semiconductor.html Large scale qubit generation for quantum computing © 2012 Phys.Org Explore further (Phys.org) — Research into quantum bits (qubits) for use in a quantum computer has become tied to entanglement, the still mysterious phenomenon whereby subatomic particles exist in an entangled state such that any change to one happens simultaneously to the other, without communication or the passage of time. The reason entanglement of qubits is so important to the future of a quantum computer is because they are able to represent both a “1” and “0” state at the same time and because actions that cause a change in one entangled particle also cause the same change in its partner, theoretically allowing for processing speeds to increase exponentially when adding more entangled qubits. Thus far though, attempts to create entangled particles inside of a semiconductor material have been difficult to measure, and thus verify, due to their short lives. Journal information: Science Now however, a small group of researchers from Harvard University has succeeded in entangling two quantum bits inside of a semiconductor and holding on to them long enough for them to be measured. They describe how they achieved this feat in their paper published in the journal Science.In essence the team overcame the inherent instability of entangled pairs by adding a second electron to the qubits in the semiconducting material which would allow them to be defined by their spin states; doing so they write, added a second level of immunity from decoherence, where the qubit reverts to either a “0” or a “1” after a very short period of time. To cause the actual entanglement, all that was needed was an electrical charge. To make sure that what they thought was happening inside the material truly was, they measured the sample using state tomography.This experiment shows that creating entangled pairs inside of a material such as the semiconductor used, is no more difficult than doing so with such techniques as manipulating calcium atoms in a laser ion trap, the trick though has been to get them to hold their state long enough to be measured, and that’s what this team has achieved. It also demonstrates a process that the team says could be scaled up, a very important element in building a quantum computer. But this of course, just a first step towards building a quantum computer because entangled pairs of qubits would need to be lined up some distance apart from one another to allow for the construction of circuits. Thus far the team has entangled qubits just a few hundred nanometers apart, the goal is to reach at least a micron. More information: Demonstration of Entanglement of Electrostatically Coupled Singlet-Triplet Qubits, Science 13 April 2012: Vol. 336 no. 6078 pp. 202-205. DOI: 10.1126/science.1217692ABSTRACTQuantum computers have the potential to solve certain problems faster than classical computers. To exploit their power, it is necessary to perform interqubit operations and generate entangled states. Spin qubits are a promising candidate for implementing a quantum processor because of their potential for scalability and miniaturization. However, their weak interactions with the environment, which lead to their long coherence times, make interqubit operations challenging. We performed a controlled two-qubit operation between singlet-triplet qubits using a dynamically decoupled sequence that maintains the two-qubit coupling while decoupling each qubit from its fluctuating environment. Using state tomography, we measured the full density matrix of the system and determined the concurrence and the fidelity of the generated state, providing proof of entanglement.

Findings were presented at the 18th SIS World Congress on Breast Healthcare. The congress was co-hosted by the Senologic International Society (SIS) and the American Society of Breast Disease (ASBD).A detailed report headed up by Linda Ann Smith, M.D., breast surgeon at Comprehensive Breast Care in Albuquerque, N.M., describes the value of more accurately targeting the site of breast cancer removal. Smith and co-author Robert Kuske, M.D. documented clinical outcomes achieved when using the new BioZorb three-dimensional surgical implant from Focal Therapeutics Inc. Kuske, of Arizona Breast Cancer Specialists, is the pioneer of accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI), a five-day alternative to conventional, more lengthy whole-breast irradiation for many early-stage breast cancer patients. BioZorb was used in combination with APBI for many patients in the study. In the 41 cases summarized in the report, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared device assisted physicians in identifying with greater ease and precision the exact location in the breast that required radiation. The treatments are delivered after surgery in order to decrease the chances of cancer recurrence. Using the implant to visualize the site of breast tumor removal helped to define the radiation treatment volumes, and this resulted in an average decrease of 55 percent. The authors noted that having the implant helped to ensure that the appropriate amount of radiation was delivered to the proper location and it allowed them to confidently exclude radiation exposure to nearby normal tissue.”To make sure breast cancer patients receive the most precise treatment possible with the lowest possible dose, the marking method must be clear and reliable from both the surgeon’s and radiation oncologist’s point of view,” said Smith. “The marker we studied is well designed from both of these perspectives. It was easily implanted, using techniques that all surgeons know. It then remained in position and defined the site of tumor removal so that the radiation oncologist could precisely target the radiation.”The authors found that with the new three-dimensional marker device in place, they were able to more precisely prescribe the desired dose of radiation, regardless of which delivery method of radiation was prescribed for patients. Current methods for targeting radiation in the breast can overestimate the volume of tissue that needs treatment, which can lead to poor cosmetic results and inadvertent exposure of adjacent normal tissues to radiation. The device used in the current study is sutured directly to the tumor resection site, which helps to address these issues. Cosmetic results for patients implanted with the marker were noted to be excellent. In all patients, the BioZorb marker remained at the site of surgery with no evidence of migration and there were no infections or device-related complications.The device’s unique open-spiral design incorporates six permanent titanium clips in a fixed 3-D array and provides specific landmarks at the site of the excised tumor. This allows the surgeon to secure the device to adjacent tissue and use it for oncoplastic reconstruction prior to its use in radiation treatment planning. Oncoplastic surgery combines plastic surgery techniques with surgical oncology methods, to help maintain the treated breast’s natural shape and contour.The device has been used successfully in both the United States and New Zealand. It is made of a bioabsorbable material commonly used in other medical devices, allowing the patient’s body to absorb the material slowly over time. The findings of the study presented at the SIS World Congress are consistent with previous research presented at other conferences. The SIS meeting was held Oct. 16-19 in Orlando, Fla.For more information: www.focalrx.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | January 08, 2015 BioZorb Surgical Implant Improves Targeting of Radiation Therapy Clinical trial recorded average radiation dose decrease of more than 50 percent Technology | Artificial Intelligence | July 18, 2019 Paragon Biosciences Launches Qlarity Imaging to Advance FDA-cleared AI Breast Cancer Diagnosis System Paragon Biosciences LLC announced the launch of its seventh portfolio company, Qlarity Imaging LLC, which was founded… read more read more Technology | Mammography Reporting Software | July 25, 2019 Hologic Partners With MagView to Develop Unifi EQUIP Solution Hologic announced a partnership with mammography information solutions provider MagView to develop Unifi EQUIP, an… read more News | Ultrasound Women’s Health | July 11, 2019 FDA Clears Koios DS Breast 2.0 AI-based Software Koios Medical announced its second 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

No related posts. Bogotá, Colombia – U.S. Vice President Joe Biden arrived in Colombia on Sunday as he launched a six-day tour that will also take him to the Caribbean island nation of Trinidad and Tobago and Brazil.The visit –Biden’s fourth to the region since becoming vice president in January 2009 – will see him discuss bilateral, regional and global issues with key leaders.The trip will be a chance to discuss “economic growth and development, access to energy and our ongoing collaboration on citizen security,” the White House said in a statement.It also comes just days before Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to travel to Mexico, Costa Rica and Trinidad and Tobago on his way to a summit with U.S. President Barack Obama on June 7-8 in Rancho Mirage, California.Senior Obama administration officials dismissed concerns that Xi’s visit and potential new Chinese investments in the region he may be announcing would undercut Washington’s commitment to Latin America.“We don’t really see ourselves as being in competition with any particular actor in the Americas,” a senior administration official said Wednesday, speaking on condition of anonymity.“We’re very pleased with the type of trade that we engage in throughout the Americas, a very diversified … type of trade. It’s a trade that emphasizes the value-added products from many countries throughout the region.”Biden’s regional tour follows President Barack Obama’s recent visit to Mexico and Costa Rica.On Monday, the U.S. vice president will meet with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, then visit a flower farm outside Bogotá. Cut flowers are one of Colombia’s most valuable exports, and the United States is its biggest market.Biden landed in Bogotá just hours after the government and leftist FARC rebels announced they had reached a deal on land reform, one of the most contentious items in negotiations aimed at ending five decades of insurgency.In Trinidad and Tobago, Biden will meet with Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar and talk with other Caribbean leaders about energy, economic integration and citizen security, the White House said.On Wednesday, Biden will deliver a speech in Rio de Janeiro showcasing Brazil as a strategic U.S. partner, and meet with Brazilian business and community leaders.Those meetings will include a tour of a site managed by the semi-public Brazilian oil giant Petrobras.Biden will also meet with President Dilma Rousseff and Brazil’s vice president to “discuss ways to deepen our economic and commercial partnership,” the White House said.

Year-over-year, sales were up 2.9 percent, making March the 21st straight month to see higher sales than the previous year.Of the 52 metro areas surveyed, RE/MAX reports 31 seeing higher sales than March 2012, with 15 posting double-digit gains, including: Honolulu, Hawaii (+43.5 percent); Albuquerque, New Mexico (+28.7 percent); and Nashville, Tennessee (+26.1 percent).In addition, the median price for all homes sold in those 52 metro areas was $170,000–a gain of 6.2 percent over February and 8.4 percent over March 2012. According to RE/MAX, median prices have shown year-over-year improvements for 14 straight months as of the most recent survey.Out of all 52 areas tracked, only two saw yearly declines in median price: Hartford, Connecticut (-2.7 percent), and Little Rock, Arkansas (-7.9 percent). On the other hand, 19 metros reported double-digit increases, including: Atlanta, Georgia (+41.9 percent); San Francisco, California (+41.4 percent); and Las Vegas, Nevada (+32.7 percent).””Home sales remain strong, and rising prices are a positive trend, but the shrinking inventory is starting to be a concern,”” said RE/MAX CEO Margaret Kelly. “”Hopefully, higher prices will result in more homeowners gaining increased equity, and feeling comfortable putting their home on the market.””Months Supply of homes fell to 3.8 in March, down 29.5 percent year-over-year and the lowest level recorded since RE/MAX’s National Housing Report began in August 2008. Month-over-month, supply was down 3.3 percent. Only two metros reported a rise in overall inventory from last year: Manchester, New Hampshire (+1.9 percent), and Phoenix, Arizona (+1.1 percent). Out of all the markets surveyed, San Francisco had the lowest Months Supply: 0.8.In addition, of all homes sold in March, the average Days on Market was a mere 85, down four days from February and 16 days from March 2012. The 85-day average is the 10th time in the past year that the Days on Market average has been below 90.””Real estate agents across the country report that interest in the market is high and home sales should remain strong into the summer,”” RE/MAX said in its report. “”While home prices have not returned to their pre-crisis levels, increasing numbers of homeowners are finding they now have a much better equity position.”” Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Demand For-Sale Homes Home Equity Home Prices Home Sales Housing Supply Investors Lenders & Servicers RE/MAX Service Providers 2013-04-22 Tory Barringer in Data RE/MAX: Prices, Sales Climb in March, Inventory Sees New Low Share
in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News, Origination, Servicing The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) reported today in its quarterly Mortgage Bankers Performance Report that independent mortgage banks and mortgage subsidiaries of chartered banks reported a net gain of $1,447 on each loan they originated in Q1 2015, a sizable increase from a reported gain of $744 per loan in the Q4 2014.”Net production profits among independent mortgage bankers nearly doubled from the fourth quarter of 2014 and secondary marketing gains improved by 31 basis points over the fourth quarter, based largely on the increase in refinancing volume in the first quarter of 2015,” said Marina Walsh MBA’s VP of Industry Analysis. “However, total production operating expenses per loan remained a challenge, rising to $7,195 per loan in the first quarter of 2015, from $7,000 per loan in the fourth quarter of 2014.”Origination costs in the first quarter are also higher in comparison to quarters with similar production volume within the past few years, Walsh said.The performance report also found that average production volume was $473 million per company in the Q1 2015, up from $417 million per company last quarter. The volume by count per company averaged 1,917 loans in the first quarter, an increase from 1,769 loans last quarter.The average loan balance for first mortgages grew to a study high of $242,791 in Q1 2015, from $233,655 in the fourth quarter, the MBA reported. The net cost to originate was $5,597 per loan this quarter, up from $5,283 in the fourth quarter.The MBA also reported today that mortgage applications decreased 7.6 percent from one week earlier, according to its weekly Mortgage Applications Survey for the week ending May 29, 2015. This week’s results were adjusted due to the Memorial Day holiday.The measure of mortgage loan application volume, also called the market composite index, decreased 7.6 percent on a seasonally adjusted basis from one week earlier, according to the survey. On an unadjusted basis, the index decreased 17 percent compared with the previous week. The refinance index also decreased 12 percent from the previous week. The seasonally adjusted purchase index decreased 3 percent from one week earlier, while the unadjusted purchase index decreased 14 percent and was 14 percent higher than the same week one year ago.The refinance share of mortgage activity is at its lowest level since May 2014, dropping to 49 percent of total applications, from 51 percent the previous week, the MBA reports. The adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) share of activity decreased to 6.1 percent of total applications.Despite all of the negative activity related to loan applications, the MBA reported that the FHA’s share of total applications increased to 14.9 percent from 14.5 percent the week prior.
