UNEMPLOYMENT IN THE Irish Traveller community was 84.3 per cent in 2011, up from 74.9 per cent five years earlier, according to the latest census figures.Out of a total workforce of 9,973, 86.6 per cent of the men and 81.2 per cent of the women were out of work.There are 29,573 members of the Travelling community in Ireland, accounting for just over half of one per cent (0.6 per cent) of the Irish population. Co Galway has the highest number of travellers, with 2,467 members, while Waterford has the lowest. 152 travellers live in the county.Other key findings of the census found that: The average age of Irish Travellers is 22.4 compared to 36.1 for the general populationOne per cent of Travellers (115) went to third level education in 2011 compared with 30.7 per cent overall27 per cent of Traveller women had five or more children compared with 2.6 per cent of women overall17.5 per cent of Travellers have one or more disabilities compared with 13 per cent in the state as a wholeHogan ‘pandering to prejudice’ says Travellers advocacy group>
As the release date of the 3DS gets ever nearer, develoeprs are starting to release more footage of the games we can expect to see on, or soon after launch.Racing fans will want to see Ridge Racer 3D in action, and Namco Bandai hasn’t disappointed with a 2 minute gameplay video appearing online today.AdChoices广告Although we can’t view it in 3D, the important thing to note here is how fast the game is running and the detail of the backgrounds, models, and effects. We have to admit, it’s looking pretty good and lives up to the screenshots we saw last month.The game moves along at a fast pace, the environments and models are detailed, and there’s even a few effects in there for spray and debris on the screen.I decided that my launch day game was going to be Pilotwings Resort 3D, but if more videos start appearing as good as this one, I might be putting down a few more pre-orders.via CVG

Access Intelligence has acquired the RETECH conference and exposition, an event for the renewable energy and technology market. The event is produced by the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) and the deal caps a year-long partnership during which Access Intelligence provided show production and management services. The show attracts more than 200 companies serving the renewable energy market, says the company. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The deal fits in with Access Intelligence’s strategic focus on driving revenues from its audience. “Our overall strategy of building clusters of media properties of paid content and must-attend events is strengthened by RETECH and our ongoing relationship with ACORE,” said AI CEO Don Pazour in a statement. That strategy emerged last year when the company, like most other b-to-b publishers, was hit hard by print revenue declines. Since then, Access Intelligence has made other acquisitions in the event space in an attempt to ease its reliance on a traditional advertising-based revenue model. The company will position RETECH under its TradeFair group, which also includes the Electric Power Exposition, Power Magazine and EnergyOcean.

More than 4,500 exhibitors from 60 countries will be present.Capsule endoscopy can be used in all diseases of the small intestine in which conventional methods are unable or insufficient to shed any light. Instead of a relatively thick endoscope, patients now only need to swallow a very small capsule containing two tiny cameras that provide clear images of the interior of the stomach and intestines.The process is not new. However, technical advances now even make it possible to move the capsule where it is supposed to go – controlled and manipulated by magnetic force. A particularly sophisticated model is a capsule that moves on its own “two feet.” Private lecturer Jutta Keller, M.D., of the medical clinic at the Israeli Hospital in Hamburg, says finding the sources of bleeding in the small intestine remains the most important indication for the method.Based on a resolution of the Joint Federal Commission of 2010, with this indication capsule endoscopy is now paid for by the German healthcare system. The method is recommended and applied, amongst others, in cases of suspected Crohn’s disease in the small intestine, complicated sprue and when other tumors of the small intestine are suspected.In addition, says Keller, there are systems for examining the esophagus and colon, the limits of whose clinical uses are not yet clear. Capsule diagnostics is not indicated for passage disorders of the gastrointestinal tract. It should also not be used on patients with pacemakers, those with a history of multiple abdominal operations, and pregnant women.The method cannot yet completely replace conventional endoscopy of the stomach and colon. One reason is that biopsies are not possible. According to the gastroenterologist, one of the greatest disadvantages of capsule endoscopy to date has been the lack of control over the capsules. For that reason, new and different systems have been or are being developed:Guiding hand-held magnetsThe most advanced systems are controlled by means of magnetic forces. This requires a capsule made of magnetic material and an exterior magnetic field. One option, for example, is control by means of a hand-held magnet. Such a system was developed in a European research project (NEMO: nano-based capsule endoscopy with molecular imaging and optical biopsy). According to Keller, the system is based on a hand-held magnet developed by the Fraunhofer Institute in St. Ingbert and a modified capsule endoscope developed by the Israeli company Given Imaging Ltd. He says that initial clinical trials with the system were quite successful. A targeted and comprehensive examination of specific structures was successful in most subjects, in that most of the mucosal lining of the stomach could be displayed.Electromagnetic maneuveringSiemens and Olympus have jointly developed a second system: MGCE – magnetically guided capsule endoscopy. The magnetic capsule (length 31 mm, diameter 11 mm) can be remotely navigated through the stomach by means of a joystick. The capsule with two cameras and a permanent magnet takes four pictures per second; they are then transferred wirelessly to an image processing system and can be viewed immediately.The results of a first study were presented and verify that this method works. Of the more than 50 people examined, a total of 30 showed pathological changes in the stomach. Of those, 14 were discovered using the capsule as well as a conventional gastroscope, ten with the capsule only, and six with the gastroscope only.”In gastrointestinal examinations, the magnetically controlled capsule produces results that are as reliable as those obtained by conventional endoscopy. However, stomach examinations using the capsule are more comfortable,” concludes Studies Director Jean-Francois Rey, M.D.Since the procedure requires practice, Siemens has developed a so-called stomach simulator. It contains an anatomically accurate model of the stomach. Every possible capsule maneuver is simulated. The simulator reproduces the video image of the capsule and displays the same navigation information available to doctors doing a real examination.According to Keller, the results of current studies plus technical advances are “impressive” and promise clinical capsule endoscopy examination of the stomach will be possible in the future. For this and, examinations of the esophagus and the retroperitoneally fixed duodenum, the simple hand-held magnet system could be a “pragmatic, effective and inexpensive solution.”It appears to be less suitable for examination of intraperitoneal sections of the intestine; the one-sided magnetic field generated will tend to move the mobile loops of the small intestine instead of maneuvering the capsule longitudinally through the loops. By comparison, a precisely controlled electromagnetic system could maneuver a capsule to “float” through the entire gastrointestinal tract. However, the currently available system is “still a long way from achieving these requirements,” explains the gastroenterologist from Hamburg.On eight “feet” through the porcine intestineOther developments are not yet ready for day-to-day use, says Keller. VECTOR (Versatile endoscopic capsule for gastrointestinal tumor recognition and therapy) is a “video capsule with feet”, developed in a further European research project. The aim was a capsule allowing targeted movement through the stomach and intestines. Preliminary data show that an eight-legged capsule can “move through a phantom model of an ex vivo colon”. In an in vivo porcine intestine, the capsule “automatically moved a limited distance (15 cm).” However, this model did not have any control mechanisms.In addition, attempts are being made to maneuver capsule endoscopes through the gastrointestinal tract by means of electrical stimulation. Electric pulses emitted from the capsule to the gastrointestinal wall trigger a contraction of the muscles in front of or behind the capsule. In this way, the capsule is moved in an oral or aboral direction. Systems such as this could be especially suitable for examinations of the esophagus and small intestine.The further technical development of capsule endoscopy is, of course, not limited to capsule navigation, emphasizes the Hamburg gastroenterologist Dr. Ingo Steinbrück. Battery power, visual range and image quality, amongst other things, were and are still being developed further. These developments aim to “enhance diagnostic sensitivity, optimize energy consumption, shorten the waiting time for findings and increase acceptance by patients.” One of the most important objectives for gastroenterologists remains intestinal cancer screening at home.MEDICA 2011 is not just showcasing state of the art gastrointestinal diagnostics and therapy in terms of imaging systems such as the respective endoscopes; the MEDICA Congress will include the event “Detection of early-stage lesions in the gastrointestinal tract” headed by Prof. Dieter Häussinger, M.D., on Nov. 17 at the Congress Center Düsseldorf (CCD.South).For more information: www.medica-tradefair.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Endoscopes | April 02, 2018 WATS3D Endoscopy Device Improves Esophageal Cancer Detection by 80 Percent Results from a recent prospective trial found the Wide Area Transepithelial Sampling with 3D Tissue Analysis (WATS3D)… read more News | August 30, 2011 Magnetic Endoscope Capsule Allows Navigation Inside the Body News | Ultrasound Imaging | June 04, 2018 Olympus and Hitachi Healthcare Americas Introduce Arietta 850 Olympus, a global technology leader in designing and delivering innovative solutions for medical and surgical procedu read more Technology | Lung Cancer | October 05, 2018 Body Vision Medical Announces Release of LungVision Body Vision Medical, a medical device company specializing in lung cancer diagnostics, announced the launch of its… read more Technology | Advanced Visualization | February 08, 2019 Fujifilm Launches Latest Synapse 3D Version at HIMSS 2019 Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. will debut the latest version of its Synapse 3D solution at the Healthcare Information… read more Related Content News | Oncology Diagnostics | April 25, 2018 El Camino Hospital Performs First U.S. Robotic Lung Cancer Bronchoscopy The interventional pulmonology team at the Taft Center for Clinical Research at El Camino Hospital in Mountain View,… read more Virtual peritoneal space inflation for endoscopy on imaging Fujifilm HIMSS19Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:35Loaded: 27.79%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:35 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Those moments of enlightenment, slivers in time, when the curtains are thrown back and there, revealed, is the hardly expected.Maybe the facts that form those revelations rattle around our heads like the stainless steel balls in a pinball machine — flippers flapping, balls popping up, hitting the glass until — suddenly — all is quiet, the lights on the machine dim and the score thunks steadily and rhythmically upward.That is the analog version. A digital one might take shape in the wake of enterprise imaging. Making it happen will be Big Data analytics, software that mines the data gathered in the daily course of adding information to electronic medical records.Patterns of healthcare practice form from data that define care given to patients; lead to rules that adjust patient care protocols and are fine-tuned for effect by revisiting data conglomerated from multiple mining operations to establish a broader context. This could breed consistency where consistency is needed most, promoting wellness and more efficient delivery of care. And this would still be just the first stage of enlightenment.Patient outcomes analyses will follow, then the implementation of new protocols. Some inevitably will involve shifts in the usage of imaging modalities, leading to clinical decision-support to guide referring physicians in the ordering of appropriate exams; leading to scan protocols best suited to answering specific clinical questions.Radiology could do well. Armed with patient outcomes data, reimbursement could increase for procedures that increase efficiency, reduce cost and improve patient care.Some of these early successes will likely involve the data mining of radiology reports made available through the ongoing transition from picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) to enterprise imaging. The next step in this data-driven revolution will be to link the information obtained from radiology reports to the vast stores of information contained in the pixels of medical images. This will be when the real fun begins, when the power of enterprise imaging is unleashed.Unlock these pixels, and new insights will all but certainly emerge. Quantitative and comparative analysis that will add a new dimension to the textual data mined from electronic medical records. Images may first be analyzed using tags associated with them, tags that point to the signs of disease. These may allow image analysis programs, including deep learning algorithms, to look for patterns in and among images.The data derived from these images, correlated with those pulled from text, could lead to a new understanding of how imaging can best be utilized — not just by radiologists but by all physicians on a patient care team. Deep learning algorithms might be leveraged to perform data mining. Other DL algorithms might crunch numbers, drawing associations.Beyond this is a new world of decision guidance in which machines work as partners alongside radiologists and other physicians. Already algorithms are being developed that prioritize the interpretation of images (see “Will Artificial Intelligence Find a Home in PACS?”). Others are being built to support the diagnostic process itself (see “How Intelligent Machines Could Make a Difference in Radiology”).This future world would be founded on machine intelligence with increasingly intensive interactions between humans and machines. So successful might these machines become that the trick In the future may be to tamp down enthusiasm, to keep human-machine relationships in balance, so people do not become too reliant on them. Physicians will have to decide how much they want to rely on machines — how far is too far.Since the Industrial Revolution, we have made machines evermore a part of our daily routines. Natural language processing has brought us closer to machines than ever before. Today we ask them to keep track of our schedules, compile lists, play music, answer questions we would otherwise research in books. Now some are being asked to drive cars. As the forerunners of technologies that embed machine intelligence, these vehicles may show us just how far people will allow thinking machines to go.The earliest adaptations are already appearing as safety nets — braking systems that automatically stop a car if an obstacle is detected; steering systems that bob and weave the car and its passengers out of harm’s way.Such safety nets will likely make their way into the practice of medicine as parts of clinical decision support systems to keep referring physicians and radiologists on track with best practices that come from data mining. But the real question is what role intelligent machines will play in the mining of data and the establishment of insights that shape the practice of medicine, decisions that ultimately will define what thinking machines do in the future … decisions that are being made right now.Editor’s note: This is the final blog in a four-part series on enterprise imaging.

5 people who need to visit the Ultrastar Multi-tainment Center The court convicted and sentenced Saeid Moradi, 29, to life in prison for attempting to murder a police officer, possessing illegal explosives and causing explosions that damaged property and injured several civilians. It sentenced 43-year-old Mohammad Kharzei to 15 years in jail for possessing explosives.The pair was detained in February 2012, shortly after a cache of homemade explosives accidentally blew apart their villa. Both claimed innocence, saying they had been unaware of the explosives in their home.They were among five Iranians suspected to be involved in the blasts.Defense lawyer Kittipong Kiattanapoom said he would consult with both men and their families to find out whether they want to appeal.Moradi, a factory technician from Tehran and a former soldier, had faced a death sentence.He lost parts of both legs as he tried to flee the villa on a crowded Bangkok street. He was carrying explosives from the house and dropped them in the street as police tried to stop him.One police officer and five civilians were injured in the incident, including a taxi driver who drove his vehicle on top of one of the bombs Moradi had dropped onto the street.Moradi had said he was carrying the explosives out of the house in an attempt to dispose of them. He also said he was not aware that the explosives were similar to “sticky” bombs used against Israeli diplomats in foiled attacks a day before the Bangkok incident in India and the former Soviet republic of Georgia. Investigators said the bombs found at the Bangkok home had round, coin-like magnets on them. Natural spring cleaning tips and tricks for your home Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Comments Share Top Stories Kharzei has testified that he was not a terrorist and had nothing to do with the explosions. He said he had not known Moradi until they met at an airport in Tehran before boarding their flight to Thailand.The court also ordered the pair to jointly pay 2 million baht ($62,800) to the owner of the house blown off by the first explosion. Moradi was also asked to compensate a telephone company for a damaged telephone booth.Another suspect, Iranian Masoud Sedaghatzadeh, 31, was detained in Malaysia, where he has appealed an extradition order. He met Moradi and Kharzei in the Thai resort city of Pattaya, and fled to Malaysia the day after the explosion.Israel believes the botched plot was part of a covert war against Israeli interests abroad that has intensified in recent years because of Iran’s alleged quest to develop nuclear weapons.The Israeli ambassador to Thailand, Simon Roded, called the two suspects “terrorists.”“This sentence proves once again that Iran is engaged in the proliferation of terror all around the world,” he said.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
