GNFC to facilitate digital transition of residential townships

first_imgAhmedabad: The NITI Aayog has appointed the State-owned Gujarat Narmada Valley Fertilizers & Chemicals Limited (GNFC) as the nodal agency to facilitate digital transition of residential townships across the country.After demonetisation, GNFC’s township in Bharuch was the first residential colony to adopt digital modes of payments. The firm’s digital drive was headed by it’s information technology division (n)Code Solutions. Impressed with the initiative, the NITI Aayog appointed the firm to replicate its model across the country.Last week, in Nagpur, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had launched GNFC facilitated 81 less-cash townships in 12 States.The 81 townships include those of Central public sector companies, like ONGC, Indian Oil, NTPC, SAIL, BHEL, NMDC, CRPF, BSF and Police Lines, and private sector townships, like Reliance, Essar, Adani, Birla Aditya, Welspun. As of now, the initiative covers the townships Delhi, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Bihar, and Chhattisgarh.The townships cover a population of around 2 lakh and are collectively doing about 2.5 lakh transactions everyday — almost 9 crore transactions in a year.After the demonetisation, the GNFC had launched a drive to ensure that fertilizers and other products in its outlets were booked and sold using digital payment options, like credit or debit cards, e-wallets, and net banking channels.last_img read more

Hamburg Süd Reaps Fruit from CCNI Takeover

first_imgzoom German shipping company Hamburg Süd Group reported an increase in total turnover by 16.8 percent to EUR 6.05 billion (USD 6.8bn), the company said.The main drivers of the growth were ascribed to the takeover and integration of the container operations of the Chilean shipping company Compañía Chilena de Navegación Interoceánica S.A. (CCNI) in late March 2015 as well as the entry into the East–West trade lanes.Shipment volume in the liner business rose on the previous year by 21.5 percent to 4,101 million TEU.Despite the weakness of the South American economies, especially Brazil, Argentina, and Venezuela, this made it possible to meet the volume growth planned for the reporting year, the company said.A fleet capacity of 625,000 TEU (+16 percent year on year) propelled the Hamburg Süd Group into the ranks of the ten largest container shipping lines worldwide for the first time.The company’s liner division failed to meet expectations amid global overcapacity and freight rates fall of roughly 16 percent, the company said.Bulk shipping was also characterized by very difficult market conditions and it fell well short of the result planned for the reporting period. Only the company’s product tanker segment achieved a satisfactory result.With regard to the outlook, Hamburg Süd anticipates a further significant, albeit more moderate increase in carryings of some 8 percent for 2016 compared to the previous year.Because freight rates are expected to remain under pressure due to continuing overcapacities and weak economic development, it is anticipated that the shipping group’s turnover will stay roughly the same.“In the current market environment, Hamburg Süd, like most of its competitors, is also exposed to strong downward pressure on earnings. The projects successfully launched last year to achieve sustainable cost reductions will, therefore, also be further stepped up in 2016 by, among other things, measures to cut fuel consumption, the implementation of further synergies and economies of scale as well as progressive efficiency increases in processes. Where required, capacity reductions will be undertaken in individual trades,” Hamburg Süd explained.The company expects no fundamental improvement of the 2016 market environment in dry bulk shipping. For product tanker markets, the outlook for 2016 remains cautiously positive.As of December 31, 2015, Hamburg Süd’s fleet comprised 189 vessels, up from 168 ships in 2014, 48 of which are group-owned. A total of 130 ships were deployed in the liner services and 59 in the tramp sector (bulk carriers, product tankers).During the year, the Hamburg Süd Group took delivery of three more newbuilds of the “Cap San” class (10,600 TEU). Four vessels, each with a capacity of 3,800 TEU, were ordered for delivery in 2017.last_img read more

Mamata to sit on Satyagraha as Modi swearsin

first_imgKolkata: On the day when Narendra Modi would be sworn in as the Prime Minister for the second time in Delhi, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will take part in ‘Satyagraha’ in front of Naihati Municipality as a token of protest against the assault on her party workers allegedly by BJP-backed goons in North 24-Parganas.Banerjee will participate in a sit in demonstration in Naihati at around 1 pm on Thursday and is also expected to visit the Trinamool Congress workers who were rendered homeless by BJP goons across the district. Also Read – City bids adieu to Goddess DurgaIt may be mentioned here that since the publication of the election results, many Trinamool Congress workers and their family members have allegedly been driven out of their homes by BJP activists in Naihati, Bhatpara, Jagaddal and some other parts of the district. The Trinamool Congress Supremo will also meet her party workers who have taken refuge in various places after being rendered homeless. Banerjee’s move sends a strong signal of assurance to the family members of those who have been subjected to the atrocities. Senior Trinamool Congress leader and Urban Development and Municipal Affairs minister Firhad Hakim said on Wednesday that BJP-backed goons had carried out hooliganism at Naihati Municipality and forced the councillors to join the saffron party at gunpoint. “They stormed into the municipality building, locked the room of municipal chairman, snatched documents from the councillors and forced them to go to Delhi,” he said.

They forcibly captured the municipality and bombs were hurled on the houses of TMC councillors. Many of our councillors have been rendered homeless since May 24. There should be a democratic process. The municipality chairman of our party will step aside if BJP can prove majority in the no-confidence move initiated by us,” Hakim added. Taking a dig at BJP, he said those who speak about democracy are resorting to violence. Incidentally, municipal chairman of Naihati Ashoke Chatterjee met Hakim on Wednesday and told reporters that the BJP goons have ransacked the dialysis and CT scan units at the municipality. The family members of a TMC activist from Jagaddal had met Director General of Police (DGP) Virendra at Nabanna on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Kajol Mondal, a former Panchayat Pradhan of Saltora in Bankura, who received severe injuries after being beaten up allegedly by BJP workers, succumbed to his injuries at Durgapur Mission Hospital in Durgapur on Wednesday. The district police have so far arrested two BJP activists for their alleged role in the incident. Trinamool Congress leader Suvendu Adhikari said that he has informed the matter to party Supremo Banerjee and also demanded stern punishment for the perpetrators. Adhikari also said that BJP activists had taken out a rally in celebration of their victory in the elections, when some of them dragged Mondal out of his house and brutally attacked him with sharp weapons. He received multiple injuries on his body and was admitted to the hospital. “We are with the bereaved family and will extend all sorts of assistance. We have no words to condemn such a heinous crime. Mondal had been associated with our party for over 20 years and played an important role at the local Panchayat. People of Bengal should introspect whom they have voted for,” Adhikari maintained.last_img read more

How Tiger Woods Finally Put It All Together Again

2004-09+0.58–+1.34–+0.24–+0.73– Tiger’s back … for real this timeStrokes gained per round (relative to PGA Tour average) for Tiger Woods on each type of shot, across his career and during his win at the 2018 Tour Championship Resurgent narrative aside, it wasn’t unfathomable that one of the greatest golfers ever won another event. Woods has put together breathtaking performances throughout this season, indicating that the ability to capture tournaments hasn’t left him just yet. The guy played in 18 official events and finished in the top 10 seven times. Moreover, he’s been dominant in the southeast, where he’s won more than one-fifth of the tournaments he’s played in that region over his career.2It helps that Augusta, Georgia, is in the Southeast. To those who would define his latest victory as a flash in the pan, consider that Woods holds top-40 marks this year in strokes gained tee to green, strokes gained around the green, strokes gained on shots approaching the green, strokes gained with the putter and total strokes gained. Only six players on tour are scoring better, on average.Tiger will never be the same player he once was; no conditioning or late-night runs to the driving range will return Woods to those prime years. But he’s jumped more than 50 spots in the Official World Golf Rankings in 10 weeks for a reason. And there’s a reason why odds are beginning to tilt in his favor, why he will represent the country at this week’s Ryder Cup.Everyone loves a comeback. Event/SeasonOff TeeApproachAround GreenPutting 2018+0.45–+0.94–+0.37–+0.30– * Woods failed to qualify for official PGA Tour leaderboards for any years in these stretches.

As Tiger Woods was decimating the small field at the Tour Championship to claim his 80th professional victory, ending a five-year winless drought, it felt simultaneously foregone and captivating.The 42-year-old with the fused spine held off the best players in the world in the prime of their careers, doing what so many said he couldn’t. After four back surgeries, four knee surgeries and off-the-course problems that chipped away at his reputation, Woods completed what could be called the greatest comeback in the history of sport. “I just can’t believe I pulled this off,” an emotional Woods said. “It’s been tough. It’s been not so easy the last couple of years.”Woods entered Sunday with a three-stroke lead, having torn up the course at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta during a Saturday round 65. By strokes gained, a metric that measures each shot a player takes based on how much it reduces his expected score on a given hole relative to the field average, Woods gained 4.07 total strokes on the field and 2.97 strokes with the putter on Saturday alone. For his career, he had taken a 54-hole lead of at least three strokes 23 times. He had never squandered it. That streak continued.Seemingly everything in his arsenal came together at exactly the same time.The putter that failed him so spectacularly at the Dell Technologies Championship was there. So too was the driver that couldn’t find a single fairway on the front nine of the PGA Open final round.During Woods’s heyday, he dominated the tee box, ranking inside the top 45 in strokes gained off the tee each season for which he qualified from 20041The first season the data is available. to 2012, including three top–10 stints. That hasn’t been the case this season. Woods entered the weekend ranked outside the top 100 in strokes gained off the tee and total driving efficiency.

This season, however, inconsistencies on the green led to club changes four times. But at the Tour Championship, Woods, who was walking in putts with gusto, gained the second-most strokes on the field with the putter (1.28). 2014-17*-0.44–+0.22–-0.49–+0.24– read more

Charlie Gard doctor denies financial link to experimental treatment

first_imgCharlie Gard’s parents have ended their fight to take him abroad for treatmentCredit:PA  His comment comes one day after GOSH told a court hearing it was disappointed to find the professor had some financial interest in the treatment suggested for Charlie. In his first public statement since their decision, Dr Hirano said on Tuesday: “I became involved in Charlie’s case when I was contacted by his parents, and I subsequently agreed to speak with his doctors to discuss whether an experimental therapy being developed in my lab could provide meaningful clinical improvement in Charlie’s condition.”As I disclosed in court on July 13, I have relinquished and have no financial interest in the treatment being developed for Charlie’s condition.”Unfortunately, a MRI scan of Charlie’s muscle tissue conducted in the past week has revealed that it is very unlikely that he would benefit from this treatment.” Charlie is being cared for at Great Ormond Street HospitalCredit:PA  The statement added: “Further, GOSH was concerned to hear the professor state, for the first time, whilst in the witness box, that he retains a financial interest in some of the NBT compounds he proposed prescribing for Charlie.”Devastatingly, the information obtained since 13 July gives no cause for optimism.”Rather, it confirms that whilst NBT may well assist others in the future, it cannot and could not have assisted Charlie.” Charlie Gardcenter_img Charlie Gard and parents In its positioning statement, the hospital submitted that Dr Hirano contacted it in December last year about NBT (nucleoside treatment) and at the beginning of this month said he had new information.It expressed concerns over his July 13 evidence to court that at this time he had not examined Charlie, read his latest medical records, or the opinions of experts who had seen him. The American doctor at the heart of legal arguments over Charlie Gard has denied having any financial interest in the experimental treatment considered for the baby.Dr Michio Hirano, professor of neurology at Columbia University Medical Centre in New York, travelled to London last week to examine the youngster. He also discussed the case with Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) doctors.On Monday, Charlie’s mother Connie Yates and father Chris Gard abandoned attempts to persuade a judge to let him travel to America for experimental treatment.

Spiral retrofit boosts improves recoveries grades and yields

first_imgIn South Africa, Northam Chrome Producers is realising improved recoveries, better grades and higher yields following the retrofit of Multotec spirals at its recovery plant. The decision to replace the existing spirals with those designed and manufactured by Multotec was taken by this chrome producer following extensive testwork performed by both Northam Chrome Producers and Multotec.Results from the test work performed at Northam Chrome Producers revealed that Multotec’s spirals outperformed the competitor units originally installed in the plant. Test work was later revalidated at Multotec’s in-house technology division in Spartan, Gauteng, South Africa by Faan Bornman, Technology Manager.Based on the outcome of these trials, Northam Chrome Producers decided to replace the existing spirals, which had reached their end of life, with Multotec spiral technology. “Tests showed that by using the Multotec spirals, the plant would be able to increase recoveries by an additional yield of 6%,” says Multotec’s Graeme Smith.Smith says Multotec was tasked with removing 172 spiral assemblies from Northam Chrome Producers’ existing recovery plant and replacing these with 72 Multotec spiral assemblies. These comprised Multotec HX5 and Multotec HX3 spirals with feed tonnage capacities ranging from 4-9 t/h per start.Smith says one of the biggest challenges of the eight-week long project was retrofitting the new spirals into the existing structure. Extensive work was done by Multotec’s in-house drawing office, which undertook all the drawings and confirmed the new layout of the plant, while also presenting the modifications needed to the structure to accommodate the new installation.The project was overseen by Smith and field service technician, Raymond Masinga. “The commissioning of the plant was an easy exercise. It started up the same day and immediately started outperforming the earlier test results,” Smith says. He reports that the entire plant’s yield is now closer to 30%, compared to the average of 21% in 2014.Northam Chrome Producers expects to see a return on its investment within a four year period.Smith says it is encouraging to hear from Northam Chrome Producers’ personnel based at the operation that the assembly has sustained its performance over the past 12 months. “We have increased the plant recoveries by 6% of additional yield. The customer has been very happy with the project overall, and we are engaging with Northam Chrome Producers on another large project.”Multotec is currently testing the performance of its own cyclones at the plant with the intention of replacing the existing units, which have also reached the end of their life.Smith says based on the feedback the company has received from many of its customers, Multotec has the best performing spirals in the market in fine and heavy minerals applications. He attributes the success of the performance of these large 1 m diameter spirals to their optimised feed-in angle.They were originally designed as a rougher and scavenger spiral to handle material ranging from 800 micron to 38 micron. “Such is their reputation in the international mining sector that a prominent iron ore miner wants to test them at one its flagship operations. Here, they will be used to recover fines ranging from 80 micron to 75 micron,” Smith says.The success of the performance of the plant at Northam Chrome Producers has also seen it turn to Multotec to help boost recoveries even further. He reports that work has already started on designing an extra stage in the existing plant to bolster recovery yields by up to 9%.Another important aspect of this project is that this is the first time that Multotec’s pipe launder systems have been used in a chrome application. This well-engineered system has been well received in mineral sands and iron ore applications due to the very high wear resistance characteristics.Unlike their steel competitors, the pipes are made from uPVC and PU lined, materials well-known for their resistance properties, boosting the lifespan of the pipes by up to nine times, according to Smith. They are also lighter than their steel counterparts making them much easier to handle on site in maintenance applications.“Two people can replace the pipe without the need for any lifting equipment on the small diameters. This is complemented by their polyurethane boot, which can be replaced in as little as five minutes every two to three years, depending on the application,” he says.All the steel pipes at Northam Chrome Producers were replaced with Multotec’s launder solutions as part of the overall installation. This was a very complex undertaking as each pipe was custom engineered and manufactured to meet the individual applications within the existing plant footprint.The picture shows the completed retrofit of cleaner stage (left) and scavenger stage (right) with the Multotec HX3 three turn large diameter spiral designed to handle chrome material ranging from 800 micron to 38 micron.last_img read more

Pelosi elected speaker will lead Dems confronting Trump

first_imgWASHINGTON  — Nancy Pelosi knew this moment would come, even if others had their doubts — or worked to stop her.Pelosi was elected Thursday as House speaker, the only woman who has held the office and now one of few elected officials who will be returning to it. The last time a speaker regained the gavel was more than a half-century ago.The California Democrat has spent her political career being underestimated, only to prove the naysayers wrong. In this case, it was by winning back the Democratic majority and amassing the votes for the speaker’s job.“None of us is indispensable,” Pelosi told The Associated Press on the campaign trail last fall, “but I do know that I’m very good at what I do.”In accepting the gavel, Pelosi will give a nod to the new era of divided government with a pledge to “reach across the aisle in this chamber and across the divisions in this great nation,” according to her prepared remarks.“The floor of this House must be America’s Town Hall: where the people will see our debates and where their voices will be heard and affect our decisions,” she says.last_img read more

Alaska Lawmakers Vote To Allow Medevac Membership Programs

first_imgLegislation allowing medevac membership programs to continue is on its way to Gov. Sean Parnell for his signature.The Alaska House unanimously approved Senate Bill 159 on Tuesday. It sailed through the Senate in late February.An Airlift Northwest Lear Jet waits for a medevac call at Juneau’s airport. Airlift is ending its medevac insurance program in Alaska after losing a regulatory exemption.The programs operated in Alaska for several years under an exemption, but Airlift Northwest’s AirCare was discontinued last year when the Division of Insurance said it no longer met state standards.That resulted in lots of complaints from Southeast Alaskans, where AirCare had more than 3,000 members.Rep. Cathy Muñoz, R-Juneau, started working with the insurance division to come up with a fix and shared the resulting legislation with her Southeast colleagues. Sen. Bert Stedman, R-Sitka, introduced it in the Senate.“It basically just exempts these types of membership programs from the Division of Insurance requirements and it sets into law a reasonable regulatory regime within the division that allows this program to continue,” Muñoz says.She says the bill had a lot of support from retirees, the commercial fishing industry, and people who work in remote sites such as mining and timber.An emergency medical flight to Seattle or Anchorage can cost $100,000 or more. Membership programs are a supplement to other health care insurance to cover the patient’s co-pay.“The primary insurance will pick up generally about two-thirds of a medical transport and the membership involvement would allow that extra charge to be waived if that was the only extra coverage the individual had,” she says.Once the governor signs the bill into law, Airlift Northwest and other medevac companies will be able again to provide their membership programs to individuals who also carry medical insurance.In a previous interview with KTOO, Airlift Northwest executive director Chris Martin said the company has always been clear that AirCare is not an insurance program.“What an AirCare membership guarantees you is that you have no out-of-pocket expenses or no co-pay. So we bill the insurance, we take what the insurance reimburses us and you as our AirCare member do not see a bill for any further services,” she explained.last_img read more

Lego Built a LifeSized Astronaut to Celebrate Apollo 11 50th Anniversary

first_imgStay on target Lego Unveils ‘Friends’ 25th Anniversary Central Perk SetThis Tree House Is Lego’s Most Sustainable Set Ever The countdown has begun! The 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing is just days away (July 20). It’s going to be quite a celebration, and Lego wanted to contribute in a big way.A very big way — as in life-sized. The Lego crew designed and built a faithful reproduction of the space suit worn by Apollo 11 astronauts when they set foot on the lunar surface back in 1969.What does it take to create a brick-built tribute the Apollo 11 crew? It starts with building a team that has the right stuff. Lego assembled a group of 10 designers and master builders for this project.AdChoices广告Once the design has been finalized, it’s time to gather supplies and start building. This statue required a whopping 30,000 Lego bricks — 15 times as many as it takes to build Lego’s awesome, 1-meter tall Saturn V rocket!Interestingly enough, those 30,000 bricks stick to a pretty limited palette. The build uses just 10 different colors.So what do you do with a life-sized Lego Apollo 11 astronaut statue? You take it to the anniversary party, of course. Lego will be taking part in the four-day Apollo celebration being hosted by the Smithsonian from July 18th to the 20th.If you’re planning to drop by the National Mall in DC to check it out, you’re in for a real treat. Lego will actually let visitors help construct another massive build during the Apollo 50 Festival.Yes, you could be lucky enough to assist Lego’s builders in the creation of a gigantic tribute to space exploration: a 20-foot-tall version of “a critical component to the next phase of Mars exploration.”Lego is also helping to celebrate Canada’s role in the moon landing. On September 2, they’ll debut the tallest Lego rocket ever built at the Ontario Science Center. It will be built from 80,000 bricks and is going to stand 11 feet tall. It’s even going to feature light and sound effects… and will have a built-in smoke machine.More on Launches Stunning 50th Anniversary Tribute to Apollo 11Best Space Documentaries to Stream Before Apollo 11 AnniversaryRelive Apollo 11 Moon Landing With NASA’s Restore Mission Control Centerlast_img read more

RayStation 9A holds several improvements, supports additional machines and treatment techniques, as well as enhancements in the integration with the next-generation oncology information system (OIS) RayCare.RayStation 9A adds support for treatment machines with dual-layer multi-leaf collimator (MLC) and non-rotating jaws, which are properties of the Varian Halcyon machine. This feature is one more step towards RaySearch’s goal to unify treatment planning for as many treatment delivery machines and systems as possible, eliminating complications and additional steps that arise from using multiple software systems.Another improvement is the support for directly deliverable multi-criteria optimization for volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) for Varian machines. This enables the same possibility for these machines as Elekta machines have had since the release of RayStation 8B.New for this release is also the improved machine modelling for photons, allowing diagonal profiles in the beam commissioning module of RayPhysics. Extended possibility to export VSim plans for further use in any TPS is also new.Improvements for proton therapy planning include caching of spot doses to speed up the optimization process. For carbon ion planning, support for Canon Medical machines have been added. The microdosimetric kinetic model (MKM) for calculation of radiobiological equivalent (RBE) dose is included. This is an important step to support carbon ion treatments in Japan, where most of the current carbon ion facilities are located. Support for connectivity with the interface IONTRIS used for Siemens carbon ion machines has also been added.RayStation 9A also includes several general improvements, such as support for a 6D (six-dimensional) couch during planning. Enhancements in the integration with RayCare, such as automatic generation of treatment plans based on a patient’s diagnosis, are also included.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Proton Therapy | August 06, 2019 IBA Signs Contract to Install Proton Therapy Center in Kansas IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A.) recently signed a contract and received the first payment for a Proteus One solution… read more News | Patient Positioning Radiation Therapy | August 07, 2019 Qfix kVue One Proton Couch Top Validated by Mevion Medical Systems Qfix and Mevion Medical Systems announced that a special version of the kVue One Proton couch top is now both validated… read more Feature | August 05, 2019 | Dave Fornell, Editor Most Popular Radiology and Radiotherapy Topics in July 2019 August 5, 2019 — Here is the list of the most popular content on the Imaging Technology New (ITN) magazine website fr read more last_img read more
