Halifax Convention Centre Reaches Substantial Completion

first_imgThe Halifax Convention Centre has reached substantial completion, a milestone for the state-of-the-art, modern event space. “Reaching substantial completion with this massive project is a milestone,” said Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Lloyd Hines. “We have a beautiful, modern facility to help grow our tourism sector and showcase our province to the world.” Substantial completion is a technical, legal and financial term that refers to a variety of financial and administrative issues which must be achieved before a building is deemed completed. It paves the way for federal, provincial and municipal payments to flow to the private sector developer. Now that substantial completion has been met, funds from three levels of government, totalling $169.2 million, will begin to flow to Argyle Developments. The federal government has contributed $51.4 million, in a lump sum. The remaining $117.8 million will be split 50-50 between the province and Halifax Regional Municipality and will be paid out in monthly payments over the lifetime of a 25-year lease. The province and Halifax Regional Municipality will collectively pay Argyle Developments a little more than $10.76 million per year over the next 25 years in annual base rent. There are more than 100 events booked for the first year of operations in the new facility, which are estimated to bring more than 80,000 delegates and more than $50 million in new money to the province. This includes 44 national and international conventions.last_img read more

Cross Lake First Nation issues eviction notice to Manitoba Hydro occupation continues

first_img(Protesters gather around a bonfire Thursday night where people from Cross Lake First Nation are occupying a generating station. Photo by Tim Fontaine/APTN)Tim FontaineAPTN National NewsCROSS LAKE, Man. – A provincial cabinet minister and the head of Manitoba’s power utility will meet with Cree people who have been occupying the grounds of a hydro dam for weeks, Pimicikamak Chief Catherine Merrick says.A small group has been occupying the grounds of the Jenpeg Generating Station since late September, but over the past two days hundreds have joined in. The station is located near the Cree community of Cross Lake, over 700 km north of Winnipeg.Thursday night, Merrick told the people gathered that a meeting will take place today at 1 p.m. between Pimicikamak leadership, Manitoba Hydro president Scott Thomson and the provincial minister responsible for the utility, Stan Struthers.No one from either of those offices was available to confirm the meeting.The occupation is the latest in a long history of disputes between Manitoba Hydro and the Pimicikamak Cree, who say the province has yet to implement the Northern Flood Agreement. The NFA is supposed to compensate northern First Nations effected by hydro development.The Jenpeg generating station, which cost $310 million to build in the 1970s, is a key element in Manitoba Hydro’s northern electricity generation. The dam is used to help regulate the level of Lake Winnipeg, which has become swollen in recent years due to flooding, and the site also acts as a reservoir for other northern generating stations.The Pimicikamak also say community members pay high electricity bills. An insult, they say, considering the power is generated on their own lands.Merrick issued an eviction notice to Manitoba Hydro on October 6, ordering staff to leave the Jenpeg station.See the eviction notice:http://www.pimicikamak.ca/eviction.pdfRCMP are at the station and reportedly escorted some staff members off the site Thursday.Pimicikamak Coun. Darwin Paupanekis told APTN that it’s time governments begin repairing and honouring treaty relations with the Cree, whatever the cost.Hydro spokesman Scott Powell said some employees were allowed to leave under police escort Thursday, but Manitoba Hydro personnel were not being allowed to enter, he said.“Our immediate concern is for the safety of our employees who are on site, members of the public and the protesters themselves, obviously because it’s an operating electrical facility,” Powell said. “Our staff are continuing to man both the generating station and staff house using supervisory and security staff.“We’ve taken measures to secure the physical plant and to maintain operations, not only of the generating plant itself, but also the Lake Winnipeg regulation control works.”The corporation has been reaching out to the band’s leadership since May for a meeting but to no avail, Powell said.“The factors underlying the protest are pretty complex and they’ve got a long history. In some cases they involve parties other than Manitoba Hydro and Cross Lake,” Powell said.“We continue to hope we can resolve the situation as soon as possible to protect the safety of all concerned and the ongoing reliability of Manitoba’s electrical supply.”– with files from the Canadian Presslast_img read more

Debt reduction remains high priority ahead of investments and savings CIBC

first_imgTORONTO – Canadians are keen to lighten their debt loads in 2018, according to an annual opinion survey conducted for CIBC.The Toronto-based bank says debt reduction or elimination was the top priority for 25 per cent of the poll respondents.Paying bills or just getting by were the top goals for about 15 per cent of respondents.By comparison, 13 per cent said their top priority was growing wealth or investments.Lower on the list of financial goals were saving for a vacation (eight per cent), retirement (seven per cent), or for a house or renovation (six per cent).The online survey was conducted Dec. 11 and 12 by Angus Reid Forum, using a statistically weighted sample of 1,524 adults in Canada.The high level of Canadian household debt has been cited by the Bank of Canada for years as one of its top concerns.But the level of household debt continues to rise, hitting 171.1 per cent of disposable income in the third quarter.That means that for every dollar of household disposable income there was $1.71 in credit market debt, which includes consumer credit and mortgage and non-mortgage loans.Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz said in a speech two weeks ago that high debt levels are one of the things that keeps him awake at night because they make the economy as a whole more sensitive to higher interest rates.According to the CIBC, debt reduction has also been the top priority in its annual poll for eight consecutive years.But only 16 per cent of the respondents in this year’s poll said they actually achieved their top financial goal in 2017.And 26 per cent said they took on new debt this year, with the top two reasons being the need to manage day-to-day expenses and unexpected financial emergencies.Jennifer Hubbard, CIBC’s managing director of financial planning and advice, said everybody knows how hard it is to keep New Year’s resolutions.“That’s why when it comes to your finances you want to set smart goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, time-bound, and most importantly, realistic.”The polling industry’s professional body, the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association, says online surveys cannot be assigned a margin of error because they do not randomly sample the population.last_img read more

SD 60 answers questions on new Margaret Ma Murray School at public

first_imgInstalling cameras in the washroom hallways or ‘panic buttons’ in each stall were two ideas that were mentioned to provide students with a measure of safety in the new washrooms. Those ideas were also mentioned as a possible way to curb inappropriate behaviour by students in the washrooms after another parent raised the issue.Parents also asked the school board about if and when a playground at the school would be completed.“They can’t begin to build a playground until the spring at the earliest,” said Sloan. “We will continue to update the public as the building gets closer to completion. When the building is finished it should have a playground just like all other schools, that’s our anticipation.” FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – School District 60 Trustees took questions from members of the public on the format of the washrooms at the new Margaret “Ma” Murray School at Monday’s school board meeting.The washroom format of the new school will be gender-neutral, essentially allowing anyone to use the restrooms. The washrooms’ toilets will be located inside individual separate rooms with locking doors. The toilet rooms themselves will be positioned around a common sink area that will be more open to the school’s corridors.Among the issues raised by the handful of parents in attendance was that of student safety. One parent asked how a teacher would know to provide aid if a student using the toilets needed assistance. “That’s a good question and a good concern,” said Superintendent Dave Sloan. “I’m all for providing a safe and comfortable space, I’ve taken that note. As for what can be done? I don’t have that answer specifically tonight but I can commit to taking that away from this meeting.”last_img read more

Sri Lanka to be on alert for quakes

Sri Lanka is to be on alert for an earthquake or a massive earth tremor following two tremors being experienced within the space of one week recently.A meeting was held last Thursday between Disaster Management Minister Mahinda Amaraweera and other officials on the measures that need to be taken in the event of a natural disaster. GSMB chairman Dr. N.P Wijeyananda told the Colombo Gazette that the tremor was registered only in Sri Lanka and not neighboring India.“The tremor was registered in all three seismology stations in the country. We are now trying to identify the epic center of the latest tremor,” Dr. Wijeyananda said.The Disaster Management Center (DMC) said that the tremor was felt in Colombo and as far as Jaffna and Nuwera Eliya. (Colombo Gazette) Officials from the Ministry of Disaster Management, the Disaster Management Centre (DMC), the Geological Survey and Mines Bureau, the National Building Research Organisation, the departments of Irrigation, Motor Traffic and Health, and University lecturers attended the meeting last week. The Geological Survey and Mines Bureau (GSMB) is already investigating the cause of the earth tremor felt on the island last weekend.The GSMB said that tremor was felt in almost the entire island registering between 3-3.5 on the Richter scale. The Minister is expected to obtain a report this week and an action plan will then be put in place to deal with future quakes, tsunamis or other natural disasters. read more

OPIRG Brock fundraises to keep its downtown InfoShop

Lisa Kretz shelves books at OPIRG Brock’s downtown InfoShop. Shown in the background is the organization’s other staff member, Milica Njegovan.It hosts a program where bicycles are fixed and repurposed for migrant workers.It hosts free schools where participants are taught skills such as Irish step dancing, or bicycle maintenance, or how to play the guitar.It’s a space for art projects, and free movie nights, and programs where community members serve free sandwiches in Montebello Park.The InfoShop hosted by Ontario Public Interest Research Group (OPIRG) at Brock is a hub for resources and public education, and a meeting place for a myriad of community organizations in downtown St. Catharines. And last month, it narrowly escaped closure.A recent OPIRG fundraiser recently saw $10,000 raised during its Save the InfoShop campaign. The money allows OPIRG to keep a downtown location (currently at 10 Summer St.), which was in doubt two months ago. Enough money was raised by July 1 to keep the InfoShop open.“We feel incredible,” said Lisa Kretz, organizational, volunteer and research co-ordinator with OPIRG Brock. “Most of all, we’re excited that we get to keep this kind of programming going in downtown St. Catharines and continue to play an essential role in the community. We’re excited to see how it develops.”Formed in 1988, Brock’s OPIRG group is one of 11 chapters in Ontario. Dedicated to social justice and environmental issues, its board members and supporters include Brock students, faculty and staff. The organization is supported in part by student funding. Several members of the Brock community also regularly donate.The InfoShop opened a year ago. The board saw the need for an outreach office in downtown St. Catharines, Kretz said, as well as a way to serve a vulnerable downtown population.OPIRG met its fundraising goal through various fundraisers, including a Save the InfoShop music festival in June and a pARTners for change event in the fall, when Brock’s Visual Arts department and community members donated works for auction.Laurie Morrison, head of liaison services at the James A. Gibson Library, was one of several Brock faculty and staff who gave generously to the campaign. In fact, it was Morrison’s donation that took the group to its goal.“As an undergraduate and graduate student, I experienced the work OPIRG does,” she said. “I hated the thought of losing that space. We need that kind of presence in downtown St. Catharines.”The shop is a space as organic and eclectic as OPIRG Brock itself. It has mismatched furniture and local art on the walls. On tables near the front door are flyers and postcards advertising local entertainment and social justice events. A bookshelf near the back holds donated books for prisoners. The room rarely looks the same way for long, Kretz said.“This room changes so much on any given day,” she said. “You walk in one day and it’s filled with bikes. Another day, there’s a board meeting happening. On another, there will be a film showing.“It’s a fundamentally unique space. It fills a niche that needs filling, and that isn’t being filled by any other organization.”For more information on how to help the InfoShop, call 905-688-5550 x4430, email opirgbu@gmail.com or visit opirgbrock.org. read more

Micromine 2018 offers innovative network licensing system

first_imgAfter months of development work and consultation with MICROMINE’s global client base, Micromine 2018 was released in March this year and includes a range of exciting new features and enhancements to help improve the mine planning process.Micromine 2018 is the market leading exploration and mine design solution offering integrated tools to provide users with an in-depth understanding of their project. New features to Micromine 2018 include Block Model extents, Search Ellipsoid tool, Variogram Maps and Charts, changes to the File Editor and new string smoothing methods to the Strings function.Perhaps the most significant change to the Micromine product in this release has been the implementation of a new licensing platform. In recent years, not only has there been significant advances in technology, there has also been major changes in the way we work, particularly in the mining industry. The modern workplace environment of mining companies includes remote workspaces, global job sharing and flexible work hours. It’s important that the Micromine solution changes with the needs of the everchanging market.Chief Technology Officer Ivan Zelina commented “we have spent a lot of time consulting with our clients to further understand their needs when it comes to software licensing. The new Micromine licensing platform provides more options, increases utilisation and allows for quick and easy access to the solution.”The new Micromine 2018 licensing platform works with or without a dongle and includes the ability to pool network licences and borrow a network licence without the need for a dongle or persistent network connection (temporarily). This means far greater flexibility for Micromine users. There are two types of licensing options available for Micromine clients, individual and network licensing.Individual Licences are appropriate for a standard Single User Licence and give Micromine users uninterrupted usage. The licence is assigned to an individual person or device, ensuring Micromine is on hand whenever it’s needed. This option is available as a Single User Dongle or Node-lock (no-dongle) and is ideal for clients that require quick, anywhere access to Micromine. The licence allows the user to run multiple instances of Micromine on a single machine.Network Licensing allows more of the team to benefit from Micromine. A network-based system allows a group of registered users to borrow a licence from the company’s module pool. Users can share licences and run Micromine on multiple computers on the same network, which provides great flexibility.The network licensing option also allows users to borrow licences from a module pool, which is an exciting new feature of the new licensing platform.“License borrowing means that you can use Micromine, for a limited time, with a Network License without a network connection to the license server. This can be convenient if you want to travel with a laptop for a limited time-period and still want to be able to run the software” adds Zelina.As well as restructuring the way in which users access their licence, MICROMINE has also changed the way clients are able to pay for their licence, introducing a number of different payment options including Pay As You Use (PAYU), Subscription Licensing; access Micromine on a subscription basis, Lease Licensing; purchase a licence for a defined period and Education Licensing; flexible options for education institutions.Zelina noted: “The new licensing project was all about increasing flexibility for our clients, so it was important we provided different options. Micromine clients can now choose the most appropriate payment method based on their needs.  Whether it’s increasing options across different departments, maximising utilisation, encouraging company-wide use for sharing or providing quick and easy access to Micromine, Micromine 2018 has licence type to suit the customer’s needs and requirements”.Micromine annual licence members have access to ongoing technical support and advice as well as an extensive training program which ensures clients realise the full potential of their software investment. Annual Licence users also have the unique opportunity to contribute to the ongoing development of MICROMINE’s software products.last_img read more

Walmart signs up Gaikai to stream PC games

first_imgThe next big revolution in PC games seems to be the ability to stream them to just about any device as long as you have a decent Internet connection. The two competing services in this field at the moment are OnLive and Gaikai.Gaikai has just landed itself a huge deal that will see it offer streaming games to anyone who visits Walmart.com in the U.S. Walmart has a subsection of its website called Gamecenter that mainly offers game details such as screenshots, trailers, and preview information alongside the ability to purchase boxed copies of those games. This new Gaikai deal will now see a “Play Now” link appear next to select titles giving you an alternative route to playing them.AdChoices广告So what does this mean for gamers? Well, a visit to Walmart’s Gamecenter could result in your getting to play a game for free as a preview. Then, if you want to continue playing you can purchase and stream the content as well as having the option to buy a boxed copy and get it delivered or pick it up from your local store.It looks as though Dead Space 2 is already available to play with others slowly being introduced over the next 12 months. Gaikai says the only limit is getting publishers to agree to let their games be streamed and played in this way.Read more at VentureBeatMatthew’s OpinionThis works well for Walmart as it can now start offering playable previews of games to help entice a purchase. Even if the user wants the Xbox 360 or PS3 version, if there’s a PC version they can preview that before paying for the console version to be delivered.Walmart isn’t going to miss the value of using this to entice hardware sales, either. Buy a new PC or invest in an iPad and you can bet Walmart will offer free streaming play on select games or for a set period of time.For Gaikai, it’s a major new customer to get on its books. There is no bigger retailer than Walmart in the U.S. and working with them will not only open up further opportunities in the future, it’s also a good test of Gaikai’s infrastructure for the whole of the U.S.last_img read more

ED IT teams conduct raids at Karti Chidambarams offices

first_imgOffices of Karti Chidambaram, son of former Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram, have been raided by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Income Tax (IT) Department on Tuesday in connection with an ongoing probe into Aircel-Maxis deal.The raids come after ED had issued summons to two directors of Advantage Strategic Consulting in the Aircel-Maxis case in August. The consulting firm is allegedly linked to Karti Chidambaram.When the Maxis’ proposal to buy a majority stake in Aircel was pending for approval before the then Finance Minister P Chidambaram in 2006, Advantage Strategic Consulting had moved Rs 26,00,444 to Aircel account, India Today reported.Advantage Strategic Consulting was later acquired by a firm owned by Karti and the two officials summoned by ED were said to be his close friends.”ED raids started from morning 8 am at various locations at BC linked firms in Chennai as Advantage Str in connection with Aircel-Maxis scam,” tweeted Subramanian Swamy, senior BJP leader, who had exposed the deal in 2012.Karti Chidambaram is also “under scanner” for Rajasthan ambulance scam, ED officials told The Economic Times, while the agency’s spokesperson confirmed the searches conducted in some of his offices in Chennai.”If govt wants to target me, it should do so directly. My family and I are quite prepared to face the “malicious onslaught” launched by government,” the former Finance Minister tweeted.ED had also questioned former telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran and his brother Kalanithi in the Aircel-Maxis case in December last year, after probing all the financial transactions related to Sun Network group companies.last_img read more

N Korea says new missile puts all of US within range

first_imgA South Korean soldier walks past a television news screen showing North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un approving the country’s new ICBM test, at a railway station in Seoul. Photo: AFPNorth Korea said Wednesday it had achieved its goal of becoming a nuclear state after successfully testing a new intercontinental ballistic missile that put the “whole mainland of the US” within its range.After watching the launch of the Hwasong-15, the North’s leader Kim Jong-Un “declared with pride that now we have finally realised the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force”, the official KCNA news agency said.The test triggered global outrage with US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis saying it marked a significant step toward North Korea building missiles that can “threaten everywhere in the world, basically.”It was the first missile test of any kind since September 15, and squashed speculation that the North may have held back in order to open the door to a negotiated solution to a nuclear standoff.“The ICBM Hwasong-15 type weaponry system is an intercontinental ballistic rocket tipped with super-large heavy warhead which is capable of striking the whole mainland of the US,” KCNA said.It said the development of the weapon would defend the North against the “US imperialists’ nuclear blackmail policy and nuclear threat”.While Pyongyang has yet to prove its mastery of the re-entry technology required to bring a warhead back through the Earth’s atmosphere, experts believe it is on the threshold of developing a working intercontinental nuclear strike capability.Wednesday’s test caused deep consternation among the North’s neighbours.Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe called it an intolerable, “violent” act and South Korean President Moon Jae-In condemned Pyongyang’s “reckless” behaviour.last_img read more

How to Survive Your Next Software Sales Demo

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. I just sat through my 11,569th software demo. It was all I could do to not flee out the window.You’ve been there, right? As a business owner or a manager, you’ve gone through the agony of selecting an accounting, customer relationship, management, order entry or some other type of software for your company. My company sells software and helps our clients find applications for their business, so I’ve been on both sides of the screen. Most of the time it sucks.Granted, it’s gotten better. My dad used to sell IBM-based software back in the 1960s and ’70s. He had to arrive on-site at a prospective client two days before to set up both the hardware and the software (which usually crashed). Today most demos are done with online platforms like GoToWebinar and Join.me, and the audience can be located in different places.But that hasn’t made this experience any less painful. I attended the demo last week on behalf of a client after being brought in at the last minute. I numbly watched as a rambling salesman in his early 20s clicked through dozens — wait, dozens and dozens — of screens, boxes and windows in a monotone, dismembered voice. Forget Ambien. Next time I need some help going to sleep, I’m calling this guy.But do software demos really have to be that horrible?No, they don’t. You, the prospective customer, have more control than you think. So darn it, take control. Get back your life. Make this a better experience. All you have to do is just break down the demo into two, more productive parts.Related: The Do’s and Don’ts of Giving a Killer PresentationPart 1. The 30,000-Foot DemoThis is the salesperson’s demo. Go ahead and let them do their thing. However, be draconian about time. Never allow more than 30 minutes for this first demo. Why? Because this is a 30,000-foot overview. It’s their chance to show you all the pretty bells and whistles, how their software is going to change your life, make you rich and — in my case — grow hair. Oh, well…You and only you, the project manager, should be on this demo. Don’t subject others to this…yet. Your objective here is to disqualify the product as compared to its competition based on look, feel and what the salesperson is telling you it does. Here’s your chance to hear their spiel about cost, performance and user-friendliness. It’s a commercial. Use this opportunity to get the big questions out of the way: Does it integrate with your internal system? How does support work? Does it perform certain core functions you desire? Do you like the salesperson and the company?By keeping this demo to 30 minutes, you are forcing the salesperson to focus on the main screens and talk you through how things will work instead of just click-click-clicking. There will be another time for them to prove that what they’re saying is true. For now, take everything at face value.If the demo sucks and you don’t like what you see, then disqualify. It’s important to narrow your options down to two or three from the 8,000 choices we seem to have when we buy anything today (what ever happened to you can have any color you want as long as it’s black?).If your demo is sufficiently persuasive to avoid disqualification, then it’s time for part two.Related: Before You Purchase Software for Your Business, Consider These Do’s and Don’tsPart 2. The Deep DiveNow it’s time to really test the software, the company, the salesperson. Do they have the chops to make it through the Deep Dive?For this demo, allow one to two hours. That may seem like a lot, and if it does, then maybe break it up into separate days. The goal is for everyone attending to have a clear head.I say “everyone” because this is the one when you invite the team. Ask the salesperson to take 10 minutes for a quick overview, then dive into how the software does specific tasks. As the business owner, you want to know what the system will do for your company. Your employees just want to know how much change this will bring to their lives.To do this, you have to move the cheese. Tell the salesperson you want the demo done with your company’s data. Ask each individual team member to submit sample data and also list the three to five ways they would use this software for to do their job. Make the salesperson show them how it would work. Software is an individual experience. The salesperson has to take the time to specifically address the individual needs of each key user.It’s not your job, but you might want to advise your salesperson to bring on an actual service person — the project manager, implementation professional, etc — for this demo. Your people will be working with those people long after the salesperson has cashed the commission check. This is useful for the software company, too. As a person who implements software, it helps me in advance to know the culture and personalities of the people I’ll be intimately working with so I know whether or not to include a bottle — or three — of Jack Daniels in my budget.Related: 5 Sales Presentation Tips From a Self-Made MillionaireThis is how you make demos productive. Of course, there is still plenty more due diligence that needs to be done before you select your software. You’ll need references, estimates, project plans. You might also need to see another demo, or two or three. This is not uncommon, so don’t be shy about asking. Hopefully, you’ll only suffer this agony once or twice in your life. Sigh…I can only dream.

November 20, 2008 – Patient Pamela Louderback was experiencing dizzy spells for months and arrived at St. Elizabeth Medical Center’s emergency room (ER) after blacking out one morning at work, and unbeknownst to her and her doctors, she was on the verge of suffering a stroke. Standard medical treatment would have included a battery of tests to diagnose her condition over multiple days – a timetable that can prove fatal or debilitating for patients on the verge of stroke. Fortunately for Louderback, St. Elizabeth used a dynamic volume CT system, the Aquilion ONE, to diagnose her condition within an hour and prevent a stroke from occurring at all. The system is capable of using one X-ray rotation to image an entire organ and show organ function over time. Its manufacturer, Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc., said the Aquilion ONE is ideally suited for detecting neurovascular conditions quickly. It uses 320 ultra-high resolution detector rows to capture up to 16 cm of coverage, enough to image the entire brain or heart and show organ movement.St. Elizabeth physicians used the Aquilion ONE to detect that the patient’s right carotid artery was 90 percent occluded, which significantly reduced blood flow to the brain. By diagnosing this condition within the hour, physicians immediately planned stent treatment to open the artery passage, preventing a stroke.“Toshiba’s Aquilion ONE allowed us to accurately diagnose the patient quickly, dramatically improving her quality of life,” explained Dr. Jeff Dardinger, director of imaging, Vascular Institute, St. Elizabeth Medical Center, who interpreted Louderback’s images. “Without dynamic volume CT, the patient would have undergone a series of tests for two-to-four days, at a minimum, to uncover the occlusion. Being able to diagnose the patient within an hour allowed us to plan treatment immediately and prevent a stroke from occurring.”“I truly believe this system saved my life,” explained Louderback. “I had several exams over the past few months, none of which could detect why I was having dizzy spells. It wasn’t until I was imaged in the ER using the Aquilion ONE could a definitive answer be found.”Introduced in November 2007, dynamic volume CT scans an entire organ in a single pass and produces 4D videos that show an organ’s structure, its movement and blood flow. In comparison, a 64-slice, 128-slice or 256-slice CT scan can only capture a portion of an organ in a single pass, requiring physicians to “stitch together” multiple scans of an organ to get a full image. The new technology helps reduce multiple exposures to radiation and exam time.The Aquilion CT product line has received numerous accolades including earning the number one ranking in CT from MD Buyline since 2002 (six consecutive years). The Aquilion CT line has also been named Best in KLAS in 2006 and 2007; Best in KLAS in 2008 for 64-detector row and above; and Frost & Sullivan’s “Healthcare Innovation Award in Cardiovascular Imaging” in 2008.The Aquilion ONE, the world’s first dynamic volume CT, utilizes 320 ultra-high resolution detector rows to image an entire organ in a single gantry rotation and shows dynamic function like blood flow. Since its introduction in November 2007, the Aquilion ONE has been named Popular Science magazine’s “Best of What’s New 2008 – Personal Health Category,” and Image’s 2008 Most Valuable Product (MVP), Frost & Sullivan’s Global CT Systems Product Differentiation Innovation Award 2007.”Founded in 1861, St. Elizabeth Medical Center has locations in Covington, Edgewood, Williamstown and throughout Northern Kentucky.

Common Voice Mozillas largest voice dataset with approx 1400 hours of voice

first_imgMozilla, a popular free and open-source web browser, released the largest public dataset of human voices available for use, called Common Voice, yesterday. The dataset consists of 18 different languages (including English, French, German, Mandarin Chinese, Welsh, Kabyle, etc) and adds about 1,400 hours of recorded voice clips from more than 42,000 contributors. “With this release, the continuously growing Common Voice dataset is now the largest ever of its kind, with tens of thousands of people contributing their voices and originally written sentences to the public domain (CC0)”, states the Mozilla team. The Common Voice dataset is unique and rich in diversity as it represents a global community of voice contributors. These contributors can also opt-in to offer other information such as age, sex, and accent so that their voice clips get attached to data that is useful in training speech engines. Mozilla had enabled multi-language support back in June 2018, making Common Voice more global and inclusive. Mozilla also involves different communities contributing towards the project who have helped with launching the data collection efforts in 22 different languages and 70 more in progress on the Common Voice site. With the help of these communities, Mozilla has made the latest additions to the Common Voice dataset including languages such as Dutch, Hakha-Chin, Esperanto, Farsi, Basque, and Spanish. It also plans to continue working with these communities to retain the diversity in the voices represented. As per the Mozilla team, these public contributors are not only able to track the progress per language in recording and validation but have also improved the prompts that vary from clip to clip. Mozilla has also added a new option to create a saved profile, that helps the contributors keep track of their progress and metrics across different languages. It also offers optional demographic profile information that further helps improve the audio data used in training speech recognition accuracy. Apart from the dataset, Mozilla also has goals towards contributing to a more diverse and innovative voice technology ecosystem in the future. It aims to release voice-enabled products while also making sure to support researchers and smaller players. “For Common Voice, our focus in 2018 was to build out the concept, make it a tool for any language community to use, optimize the website, and build a robust backend. Our overall aim remains: Providing more and better data to everyone in the world who seeks to build and use voice technology”, states the Mozilla team.
