A passenger rights company says a loophole in proposed regulations could allow airlines to get off the hook for compensation and put air travellers at risk.AirHelp notes in an open letter to the government that the rules impose no obligation on airlines to pay customers for delays or cancellations if they were caused by technical problems discovered on the tarmac.AirHelp’s chief legal officer Christian Nielsen says the regulation fails to incentivize airlines to preempt pre-flight problems, jeopardizing passenger safety.Transport Minister Marc Garneau has insisted that airlines won’t mess around with safety and dismissed the idea they will look for ways to worm out of compensation. He has pointed to the European Union as having similar regulations.Nielsen and passenger rights advocate Gabor Lukacs dispute that view, insisting airlines in the EU remain accountable for mechanical malfunctions, including those found right before take-off.Barring the loophole, the government’s long-promised passenger bill of rights would see passengers who are bumped from overbooked flights or forced to sit through long delays receive up to $2,400 in compensation.The Canadian Press

Canadian dollar surges almost a cent amid rising commodity prices AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by News Staff Posted Jun 6, 2012 4:29 pm MDT TORONTO – The Canadian dollar jumped almost a full US cent Wednesday as prices for oil and metals continued to recover from multi-month lows.The commodity-sensitive currency was up 0.95 of a cent to 97.29 cents US as investors felt inclined to buy up riskier assets such as equities, commodities and resource-based currencies.It had been lower earlier in the session after the European Central Bank failed to indicate some readiness to deal decisively with the region’s debt crisis.The July crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange closed up 73 cents to US$85.02 a barrel. Prices have been buffeted over the past few weeks as the worsening eurozone crisis has stalled an already fragile global economic recovery.Prices for copper, viewed as an economic bellwether as it is used in so many applications, jumped nine cents to US$3.38 a pound.Bullion prices also improved with the August contract ahead $17.30 to US$1,634.20 an ounce.The ECB said earlier in the day that it was keeping its key rate unchanged at one per cent.There had been hopes ECB president Mario Draghi would indicate the bank is prepared to cut the rate next month and at the same time approve more stimulus measures in an effort to spur governments to take action themselves, such as closer fiscal ties and the creation of a banking union.Draghi told a news conference after the interest rate announcement that banks must further strengthen their balance sheets.Many analysts expected that approach, saying that the bankâ€™s inaction would spur political leaders to hash out some new framework.Markets have been whipsawed over the last month by growing worries about the eurozone debt crisis, including the possibility that Greece could be forced to leave the monetary union. But concerns have greatly increased in recent days about the health of Spanish banks, which are loaded with billions of toxic loans as a result of the collapse of the country’s housing sector.Spain needs money to rescue its ailing banks, but can currently only receive such aid from the EU in a government bailout package. Madrid adamantly wants to avoid such a solution, as it would mean fellow eurozone countries and the International Monetary Fund would be allowed to impose fiscal policies on the country.The country has been forced to pay higher interest rates on its debt, coming close last week to the seven per cent level, which is widely viewed as unsustainable.The yield on Spainâ€™s key 10-year bond edged down to 6.24 per cent Wednesday on hopes the European Union may be moving closer toward adopting measures that could alleviate the countryâ€™s financial crisis.There are also hopes the U.S. Federal Reserve might provide more stimulus to its economy, supporting confidence in the global economy.
A twisted sign, felled concrete posts and a broken wall tell the story of violence outside a coking plant in OrgreaveCredit:PA South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner Dr Alan Billings said he was “shocked and dismayed” by the decision.He said the “former miners and their families deserved to know the truth about what happened that day”.Dr Billings added: “The government have marched the Campaign for Truth and Justice to the top of the hill only to march them down again. There were cries of “disgraceful” and “shameful” from the Labour benches as Ms Rudd addressed the House, while dozens of campaigners in the public gallery could be seen shaking their heads at the Home Secretary’s comments.In response to Mr Burnham, Ms Rudd said: “No. The right honourable gentleman is entirely wrong.”He chooses to politicise it, where there is none here. I had a meeting, as he knows, with the campaign group.”We had a frank exchange of information about it, but the fact is just because he disagrees with the decision I have made, does not mean that it is the wrong decision at all.”I have made it honestly, based on the evidence.”Labour MP Sarah Champion, who has Orgreave in her Rotherham constituency, said campaigners had travelled to London to watch in the public gallery with the understanding they would be met by the Home Office and hear an inquiry announced. Amber Rudd, the Home SecretaryCredit:REX/Shutterstock “There would therefore be very few lessons for the policing system today to be learned from any review of the events and practices of three decades ago,” she said. “This is a very important consideration when looking at the necessity for an inquiry or independent review and the public interest to be derived from holding one.”Ms Rudd stressed that the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is working with the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) to determine whether material related to the policing at Orgreave is relevant to the criminal investigations following the Hillsborough inquests. The Home Secretary has said the Government will not pursue an inquiry into the notorious clash between police and miners at Orgreave.Amber Rudd announced in a statement today that there would be no probe into the conduct of South Yorkshire Police during the violent encounter in 1984.Her decision comes after the Hillsborough victims urged the secretary of state on Sunday not to limit an inquiry to a private review, instead committing to an open, panel-style hearing. Anger at refusal to allow inquiryMany have reacted with fury to the news that Amber Rudd will not allow an inquiry into Orgreave.In the Commons, Labour’s former shadow home secretary Andy Burnham accused the Government of an “establishment stitch-up”.Speaking during questions to the Home Office, Mr Burnham said: “Given that the IPCC found evidence of perjury and perversion of the course of justice, and given that in the last month new evidence has emerged from former police officers who were at Orgreave of orchestrated violence and the mass manufacture of police statements, are we right in concluding the establishment stitch-up that she has just announced today is nothing more than a nakedly political act?” We don’t take no for an answer. Our fight for #orgreavejustice continues.Join us at Barnsley Miners Hall Tue Nov 1st 10am pic.twitter.com/IStXNWbKGy— Orgreave Justice (@orgreavejustice) October 31, 2016 Sheffield Heeley MP Louise Haigh, who raised demands for an inquiry with then home secretary Theresa May in a 2015 letter signed by more than 100 Labour colleagues, said it was a “disgraceful betrayal of justice” and accused Ms Rudd of “leading campaigners up the garden path only to deny justice at the 11th hour”.Ms Haigh said that without an inquiry, evidence would be left to “gather dust” in South Yorkshire Police archives.”For the truth to out, all records pertaining to Orgreave from police forces across the country must be released and there must be an independent reviewer to oversee it,” she said.”The Home Secretary today has put a screeching brake on the search for truth.”For many communities in South Yorkshire the question of how police forces from across the country – not just South Yorkshire – which are supposed to be there to serve them could be used against them in such a brutal, deliberate way has left a bitter legacy. This decision will exacerbate that.” The announcement will come as a bitter disappointment to campaigners.She said: “This has been a difficult decision to make, and one which I have thought about very carefully. I have now concluded that there is not a sufficient basis for me to instigate either a statutory inquiry or an independent review.”I know that this decision will come as a significant disappointment to the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign and its supporters.”Ms Rudd added that “policing is very different” now to what it was 30 years ago. Deeply disappointing decision by @AmberRudd_MP. We stand with you @orgreavejustice #Orgreave https://t.co/4F64lpv174— Liberty (@libertyhq) October 31, 2016 She said: “I am beyond shocked about this, I am incredibly frustrated for the people who will never see justice, for years research has been done by the Orgreave Truth and Justice Committee, and evidence gathered by the IPCC, and this feels like a complete snub to the people of South Yorkshire. So this is what they think of us.” Labour MP Sarah Champion Credit:Atlantic Productions Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Labour will set up an Inquiry as soon as elected to office.— Jon Trickett (@jon_trickett) October 31, 2016 The so-called Battle at Orgreave became one of the most infamous showdowns between pickets and police during the miners’ strike.It is alleged by campaigners that police action on the day was excessively heavy handed and statements were manufactured to discredit those involved.Momentum for an Orgreave inquiry has escalated since the conclusion of the two-year Hillsborough inquests, which provided a scathing assessment of the under-fire police force’s behaviour.A review in 1998 into the Hillsborough disaster carried out by Lord Justice Stuart-Smith was said to have stalled the families’ pursuit of the truth after he concluded new inquests were not warranted.The relatives of those who died in the footballing tragedy said electing a single judge to review the case behind closed doors would be inadequate.Margaret Aspinall, chair of the Hillsborough Family Support Group, said: “A judicial security approach would be completely unacceptable as history shows in our case that it only served to lengthen the cover-up.” Brian Paddick, the Liberal Democrats’ shadow home secretary, said: “People deserve answers about what happened at Orgreave. We must have confidence in our police forces and avoid any suggestion that there may have been a stitch-up by people in power to try to cover up wrong doing.”A full and proper inquiry is required to restore trust and confidence and I am dismayed that the Home Secretary has failed to establish one.” Andrew Burnham said the decision was an ‘establishment stitch up’Credit:Getty Images It is a grave injustice that there will be no statutory inquiry into the battle of Orgreave— Diane Abbott MP (@HackneyAbbott) October 31, 2016 Senior backbencher and Leeds Central MP Hilary Benn described the decision as “shameful”, adding: “It’s time the truth was told and the Government is failing in its responsibility by ruling out an inquiry.”Aberavon MP Stephen Kinnock branded Ms Rudd’s decision an “absolute disgrace”, while Barnsley MP Michael Dugher said it was “a complete betrayal of campaigners and a spit in the face for every former coalfield community”.Mr Dugher described the announcement as “a political decision to protect the interests of the Tory party”. Absolutely appalling that there will be no inquiry into #Orgreave. Gvt has led campaigners up the garden path to deny justice at the 11th hr— Louise Haigh MP (@LouHaigh) October 31, 2016 Given the substantial concerns that exist, it is astonishing that the Home Secretary will not commit to an inquiry or review into #Orgreave.— Dan Jarvis (@DanJarvisMP) October 31, 2016 “I am not convinced by the reasons given for refusing an investigation. No one has ever suggested that the events of Orgreave were comparable in every respect to the disaster at Hillsborough. But the former miners and the former mining communities in South Yorkshire deserve an explanation as to what happened on that day and where Orgreave fits in the wider story of the miners’ strike.”I believe the government has shied away from agreeing an enquiry because of those wider issues.”South Yorkshire suffered at that time from industrial policies that saw the destruction of all our major industries – steel, heavy engineering and coal mining. We live with the consequences today.”South Yorkshire Police were ready to co-operate in any enquiry. We had agreed to look at how the archives could be made available. Steps had already been taken to recruit a professional archivist to ensure all documents and other material would have been available to any enquiry.”This was a critical moment for the police service in South Yorkshire. It could have shown that it had really learned lessons of past mistakes and was ready to co-operate fully with any enquiry. We wanted to see a new era of openness with no attempt to be self-justifying or defensive.”I have offered to meet with the policing and fire service minister to discuss how the force can move forward under new leadership and having learned the lessons of the past.”But I am deeply disappointed and dismayed by today’s decision.”Amber Rudd’s full statement”The Government has been considering a submission from the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign on the need for an Inquiry or independent review into the events that occurred at Orgreave Coking Plant on 18 June 1984, and subsequently.This has been a difficult decision to make, and one which I have thought about very carefully. I have now concluded that there is not a sufficient basis for me to instigate either a statutory inquiry or an independent review. I know that this decision will come as a significant disappointment to the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign and its supporters and I have set out in a letter to them today the detailed reasons for my decision which include the following points.Despite the forceful accounts and arguments provided by the campaigners and former miners who were present that day, about the effect that these events have had on them, ultimately there were no deaths or wrongful convictions.The Campaigners say that had the consequences of the events at Orgreave been addressed properly at the time, the tragic events at Hillsborough would never have happened five years later. That is not a conclusion which I believe can be reached with any certainty.It was absolutely right that the Government established the Hillsborough Independent Panel. Significantly the Panel’s report led to the High Court quashing the original inquests verdicts and the opening of the fresh inquests. The jury’s determinations and findings were unequivocal and clear: 96 victims were unlawfully killed. The criminal investigations should now be allowed to proceed unimpeded. The IPCC is working with the CPS to assess whether material related to the policing at Orgreave is relevant to the Hillsborough criminal investigations. The intention is that criminal investigations in respect of Hillsborough will provide files to the CPS by the turn of the year following which the CPS will make decisions about whether any criminal proceedings will be brought as a result.The Campaign and their supporters explained to me when I met them that they want to get to the bottom of what happened on the 18 June 1984, and that only by doing so will their trust, and that of their community, be restored in the police.However, there have been very significant changes in the oversight of policing since 1984, at every level, including major reforms to criminal procedure, changes to public order policing and practice, stronger external scrutiny and greater local accountability.The operational delivery and practice of public order policing has moved on a great deal from the arrangements in 1984, and tactics have now been reviewed and altered several times both by the police and the courts.Protections which were singularly lacking at the time of Orgreave now exist with the introduction in the mid-80s of the Police & Criminal Evidence Act which has vastly improved the way police investigations and powers operate.The creation of the Crown Prosecution Service in 1986, with the introduction of independent CPS prosecutors, fundamentally altered the prosecution of offences. It ended the existence of ad hoc prosecution arrangements across the country whereby a mixture of police prosecutors and private firms of solicitors – hired by the police and acting for and on the instruction of the police – conducted prosecutions.With regards to the external scrutiny of complaints against the police, this was strengthened by the creation, in 1985, of the Police Complaints Authority which was replaced in 2004 by the more effective Independent Police Complaints Commission and in turn will be replaced by the Office for Police Conduct in 2017. The exemplary standards of behaviour expected of everyone who works in policing were reinforced by the introduction of a statutory Code of Ethics, laid before this House in 2014.Lastly, the introduction of directly elected Police and Crime Commissioners in 2012 has given the public a voice in shaping their local policing priorities and improved the accountability of police leadership.Over 30 years later, policing is very different and one of my key concerns as Home Secretary is to ensure there is a policing system which works effectively and fairly now. The policing landscape has changed fundamentally since 1984 – at the political, legislative and operational levels. The same is true also for the wider criminal justice system.There would therefore be very few lessons for the policing system today to be learned from any review of the events and practices of three decades ago. This is a very important consideration when looking at the necessity for an inquiry or independent review and the public interest to be derived from holding one.Taking these considerations into account, I do not believe that establishing any kind of inquiry is required to allay public concerns or for any other reason.I believe that we should focus on continuing to ensure that the policing system is the best it can be for the future, including through reforms before Parliament in the Policing and Crime Bill, so that we can have the best possible policing both in South Yorkshire and across the country.” This was a critical moment for the police service in South Yorkshire. It could have shown that it had really learned lessons of past mistakes and was ready to co-operate fully with any enquiry.

A woman accused of poisoning a three-year-old boy used tens of thousands of pounds in legal aid to try to keep her alleged terror connections secret.Taxpayer-funded lawyers argued that Scotland Yard should not gain access to woman’s files after she repeatedly contaminated an intravenous tube which was being used to treat the child.It is claimed that the woman, who cannot be named, also planned to take the boy to Syria, where his father is alleged to be fighting alongside the Islamic State. A High Court judge has now said that there is a clear public interest in passing her files to the Met Police and prosecutors, The Sun on Sunday have reported.However, they will not be handed to foreign intelligence agencies such as the CIA.Mr Justice MacDonald said: “The alleged offences which are the subject of investigation by the MPS are offences under the anti-terrorism legislation.”Such alleged offences are inevitably serious and the consequences are potentially grave and the subject of legitimate public concern.” Describing the alleged poisoning of the child, referred to only as Z, in a High Court judgement last month, Mr Justice MacDonald said: “She had caused Z to become ill on a number of occasions by administering a drug to him and by contaminating an intravenous cannula.”The woman was in contact with the father to a far greater extent than she had admitted.”It is likely that the father is in Syria and is involved in terror related activity, that the woman was aware of and that the father planned that she and Z would travel to Syria to join him and to live there.”Tory MP David Morris said: “Where there is a clear public interest to assist the security services questions must be raised over how public money is spent.” Where there is a clear public interest to assist the security services questions must be raised over how public money is spentMP David Morris Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Watchdog blog Consumerist this week announced the nominations for its sixth annual Worst Company in America competition. The list, which is is broken down in full March Madness bracket-style, features a number of high profile tech companies. In the first round, Apple will be competing with Microsoft, Facebook will be duking it out with Time Warner, DirecTV and Dish Network will be going head-to-head, and Sony and Dell will be doing battle. Also on the list: Tickemaster v. Paypal, Verizon v. AT&T, Radioshack v. Best Buy, Comcast v. Charter, and GameStop v. Wal-Mart.BP makes a notable debut on the list this year, after an oil spill that proved one of the biggest man-made disasters in U.S. history. The oil company will be facing stiff competition in this round from Toyota–the car maker recalled millions of vehicles in 2010, over pedal-related problems.Not surprisingly, in light of continued economic woes, banks and credit card companies had a big showing on this year’s list, with Chase, Wells Fargo, American Express, Capital One, Bank of America, and Citibank all making the cut. Interestingly (also in light of the year’s events), the number of airlines dropped to two, with only Delta an United making the final list.The 32 companies will begin squaring off tomorrow.

Game of Thrones’ final season won’t premiere until April 2019, but HBO just revealed a key character alliance ahead of the White Walker invasion.On Sunday, HBO aired a first look trailer for upcoming shows, including Game of Thrones, during the 2019 Golden Globes ceremony. The trailer, which is now posted on YouTube, showed Sansa Stark and Daenerys Targaryen meeting for the first time.“Winterfell is yours, your grace,” Stark tells Targaryen in the brief clip. This short meeting highlights a new alliance between the two characters, as Winterfell prepares for the White Walker army’s arrival.HBO didn’t reveal any other Game of Thrones details in the trailer, however, most fans were excited about Stark and Targaryen’s allegiance. Some fans pointed out Stark’s body language, indicating that the first meeting wasn’t warm, but polite.GAME OF THRONES FEELINGS! CAN’T WAIT TO SEE SEASON 8!

Argentine manager Diego Simeone explained the reason he decided to change Atletico Madrid’s formation in their win against Club Brugge.Spanish club Atletico Madrid just got a convincing Champions League victory against Club Brugge from Belgium, manager Diego Simeone was forced to change his usual 4-4-2 formation for a 4-2-3-1 after halftime and he explained why he did it after the match.Atletico defeated the Belgian club at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, with a Griezmann brace and a late third goal scored by Koke: “We studied Club Brugge, we knew they had very strong starts and we understood that the way in which he started the match would give us what it did, it placed us ahead in the game,” said Simeone during the press conference after the match.“They tied the match later because we knew that they had a great long-range shooting skill. After the break we changed to a 4-3-2-1 formation after Gimenez’s exit, then Correa came in and changed the game completely with his speed and talent, he also covered the holes we had in the last third of the pitch and he made us a lot more dangerous.”“We still have to learn to manage the timing of the match in a better manner. We have been swift. We are improving more and more as the days go by, especially since we lost against Celta. We are growing and improving, there are so many matches left and the players’ effort is huge,” added ‘Cholo’ about Costa and Gimenez’s injuries.La Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…“We get situations like the one about Gimenez or Costa sometimes… I guess they won’t be available for the next matches but we are still happy with the result. We trust that the young players who are waiting for their opportunity can cease it.”📸 | PHOTO GALLERY👉 Here are the best photos of tonight’s win!➡ https://t.co/rPVvx7rH0L#AúpaAtleti #AtletiBrujas #UCL pic.twitter.com/KTIBhY3iDe— Atlético de Madrid (@atletienglish) October 3, 2018
Smith has raked in a huge profit from his 2015 investmentMatt King/Getty ImagesWhen it rains, it pours! Steve Smith’s luck seems to have turned round drastically. After getting disgraced for his actions as a captain in sanctioning ball-tampering, he is back to his best. The back-to-back hundreds scored by the right-hander in the first Ashes Test have re-asserted his credentials as the world’s best Test batsman. But it’s not just on the field that the former captain is making a killing.Recently, an investment of Aus $100,000 that he had made in a company called Koala Mattresses, led to a windfall profit as he earned Aus $12.1 million in return. The investment made by Smith was in return for a 10% stake in the company. This masterstroke by the man with 25 Test hundreds was played in 2015. Since then, the firm has grown exponentially to have more than 200,000 customers and a valuation of Aus $150 million. As a result of this massive profit, Smith now has made more money from his stake in Koala than through his cricket-related deals. According to some media outlets, Smith makes Aus $2 million from his duties as an Aussie cricketer. To add to that, his IPL contract brings him an equally large sum. The ball-tampering scandal had left Smith disgraced, but only temporarilySTR/AFP/Getty ImagesThe total valuation of Smith is bound to come to around Aus $31 million, according to estimates by agencies. This windfall gain from Koala Mattresses would also completely wipe out the loss that the 30-year old suffered due to the sandpaper-gate controversy. With him losing the opportunity to play for Australia for one year and also not being allowed into the IPL, the New South Welshman is estimated to have endured a loss of Aus $7 million.But all the turmoil and embarrassment that the former captain had to face has been replaced by adulation and admiration in his home country after his good performances in the World Cup as well as the two brilliant knocks against England. All these emerged despite the extremely hostile reaction dished out by the English crowds continuously to him.While many spectators brought sandpapers to the ground and have waved them at him and the other two players – David Warner and Cameron Bancroft – who were involved in the infamous saga, others have booed him relentlessly despite his superlative batting.But the rest of the world seems to be warming up to him once again. During Australia’s match vs India in the ICC 2019 World Cup, when some Indian fans targeted Smith, the captain of the Men in Blue, Virat Kohli, admonished them and asked for a show of respect towards his rival. Times have certainly changed for the fidgety run-machine of Australia.

The new series, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, is based on the graphic novel of the same name by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.It follows a teenaged Sabrina in the 1960s, coming into her own as a witch, with some much darker elements than fans are used to.English actor Chance Perdomo plays Ambrose and describes his character as a ‘bastardised magical love-child of David Bowie & Jimmy Hendrix’ with a ‘penchant for mischief à la Loki’.

Electronic health records are moving to the cloud, telehealth is becoming a business requirement, and progressive new technologies like deep machine learning and digital pathology interpretation will soon become mainstream. The question is, will healthcare IT organizations be ready? According to Logicalis Healthcare Solutions, the healthcare-focused arm of Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, the key is to create a digital foundation that paves the way for the implementation of these new technologies. To help, the healthcare IT experts at Logicalis US have created a downloadable white paper that explores the strategic use of cloud, automation and managed services strategies as foundational components along this path. The paper, “Optimizing Every Healthcare IT Dollar,” is available for immediate download by healthcare organizations scheduling a meeting with Logicalis US at HIMSS18. “To deliver the technology that supports everything from hyperconverged data centers to precision medicine or genomics, for example, requires the full focus and attention of a unique breed of IT specialists,” says Michael Riley, Practice Leader, Logicalis Healthcare Solutions. “And while these people may already be on a hospital’s IT staff, if they’re bogged down with the daily operation of the provider’s IT infrastructure, the intellectual bandwidth the organization needs to tackle the implementation and deployment of new clinical or research technologies simply isn’t available.”Logicalis experts say the use of managed services, IT service management (ITSM), and the cloud, however, can help healthcare IT organizations take those all-important next steps toward a more efficient, secure, digitally enabled future that is ready to explore, implement and support the advanced technologies being developed and brought to market today.Three Steps: Laying the Foundation for Healthcare’s Digital Transformation1. Managed Services: Why Outsourcing Is No Longer a Four-Letter Word: In a resources-constrained environment where the healthcare IT team is spending 80 percent or more of its time monitoring events, implementing patches, overseeing backups, staying compliant and managing the service desk, real digital transformation isn’t an option. CIOs simply must find a way to flip that 80/20 rule upside down. The simplest and most cost-effective way to do that is through the use of managed services. In fact, in a recent survey of 890 CIOs around the world, one in four said they already outsource most (more than 50 percent) of their IT to a trusted MSP.2. Using ITSM to Do More with What You Already Have: At a time when CXOs and healthcare boards of directors are demanding “more, better, faster” from their IT departments, but budgets are not expanding commensurately, the right automation and IT service management (ITSM) strategies offer CIOs another important success-building option: Migrate what you can to the cloud, then automate what you keep in house so neither IT nor clinicians spend unnecessary valuable time on maintenance and management of systems that could effectively run themselves.3. Embracing the Cloud is the Beginning of Real Transformation: IT is no longer all about the infrastructure you own and manage in house; instead, it’s about the quality of services you can efficiently and cost-effectively deliver to users throughout your organization. To deliver a more agile IT experience, CIOs have realized, requires a new operational and consumption model that relies on the cloud as a vital and viable part of the plan. And, now that security for cloud solutions has matured, the cloud can and should play a significant role in a healthcare organization’s digital transformation strategy.For more information: www.us.logicalis.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Key Topics for Radiology Administrators at AHRA 2019Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 7:33Loaded: 2.15%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -7:33 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Sponsored Stories Pantelis Kourbelas, owner of fashion company Ioanna Kourbela, which exports to 25 countries, is being creative as he tries to import thread and material from Italy and France.“If we can’t buy raw materials because we can’t send money abroad we will have a problem,” said Kourbelas, 62, who is also on the board of the Athens Traders’ Association. “We’re thinking of opening a bank account in another European country and all our transactions with clients who buy from us to be done through that account. That’s the only way we can ensure the continuation of production.”While a rescue deal could allow Greece to ease its money controls somewhat, the country is unlikely to be able to undo them completely — the last eurozone nation to impose such controls, Cyprus, took two years to lift them fully.___Pylas contributed from Brussels.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Bankruptcies are on the rise: bad loans on banks’ books are expected to surge to account for 40-45 percent of all loans, from 35 percent in December, according to Moody’s credit rating agency.Money has been pulled out in droves from the country over the past months of uncertainty. Deposits hit an 11-year low in May and analysts say it will take time for investors to find the courage to plow money back into the country, even if it has a rescue deal.The public debt load is unsustainable at around 180 percent of GDP — or 320 billion euros — and forecast to rise over the next two years as the economy weakens, the International Monetary Fund warned this week.Meanwhile, the budget savings the government will have to make to get the financial bailout from its European creditors will hurt economic growth. They include, among other things, tax increases that are likely to dent spending.“Greece has already gone through (a) depression,” said Megan Greene, chief economist at Manulife Asset Management. “This ensures they’ll go through three more years of recession if it’s implemented.”The Greek government, and many experts, say the bailout deal is needed to avoid the even worse scenario of a complete collapse in Greece’s banks, which would push the country out of the euro. Economists estimate that if Greece falls out of the currency union, its economy could shrink by another 10 or 20 percent.

Business owners are warning there could be shortages of basic goods such as food if the situation isn’t resolved and banks aren’t reopened.Exporters are also experiencing problems as many are unable to buy raw materials from abroad, while others say they cannot pay for agricultural products.“It’s a huge problem, we’re now only receiving from abroad the products that have already been imported and paid for,” said Natassa Voudouri, owner of Contlift, which transports goods from shipping containers around Greece. “From here on, things get harder … The reason is that no money transfer can be sent abroad from Greece. At the moment we’re taking delivery of the last goods, which is food. All the rest is frozen and we’re expecting product shortages.” ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece has a tentative rescue deal, but relief that it is not falling out of the euro is unlikely to last long: its economy has taken a huge hit.Months of political brinkmanship, uncertainty and bank closures have hurt companies and brought everyday business to a standstill. And new economic measures meant to secure the bailout are forecast to put the country, which emerged last year from six years of economic decline, through more misery. Top Stories Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Patients with chronic pain give advice “No one is producing. No one is buying. Everyone is scared,” said 59-year-old Dimitris Farmakis, who has a cloth-making firm in Athens.On top of a slump in demand, Farmakis’ business is hit hard by a government limit on money transfers that makes it impossible to buy supplies from overseas. He’s cut down on production and given his staff time off.“In a few weeks we won’t be producing due to these shortages,” Farmakis said.Farmakis’ woes are commonplace in an economy that analysts estimate will contract by about 4 percent this year.That’s a big reverse from just six months ago, when it had emerged from one of the most savage recessions the developed world has seen in modern history. Its public finances were also healing and the country was even considering financing itself once again on international bond markets.Rip up that script.Greece fell back into recession in the spring amid growing uncertainty over the country’s future in the euro in the wake of the election triumph of the radical left Syriza party in January. As the bailout talks dragged on, concerns became more acute and the recession deepened, evidence suggests. The government’s decision over two weeks ago to shutter all banks, impose limits on cash withdrawals at ATMs for Greeks, and restrict electronic transfers abroad dealt a huge blow to an economy that was already reeling. 5 treatments for adult scoliosis In this photo taken on Thursday, July 9, 2015 a worker walks between containers at the industrial zone of Aspropyrgos, western Athens.

Pending Home Sales Recover After June Drop August 28, 2014 507 Views Existing-Home Sales Housing Supply National Association of Realtors Pending-Home Sales 2014-08-28 Tory Barringer Share in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Headlines, News An early indicator of home sales suggests market activity should continue to increase in the coming months as the nation’s housing stock rebuilds.The National Association of Realtors (NAR) reported Thursday a 3.3 percent monthly increase in its Pending Home Sales Index for July, putting the index at 105.9. With July’s increase, the index has now risen for four of the last five readings, seeing a slight retreat in June.Though pending sales were down 2.1 percent compared to a year ago, July’s figure was the highest since August 2013 and was the third straight month in which the index measured above 100, a value NAR considers to be an average level of contract activity.NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun said sales activity benefited from increasingly favorable conditions for buyers in the housing market.”Interest rates are lower than they were a year ago, price growth continues to moderate and total housing inventory is at its highest level since August 2012,” Yun said. “The increase in the number of new and existing homes for sale is creating less competition and is giving prospective buyers more time to review their options before submitting an offer.”More importantly, steady job additions to the economy are helping family finances and giving them added confidence to enter the market,” he added.Total for-sale housing inventory in July was an estimated 2.37 million existing homes, according to the group.Three of the four census regions showed sizable gains in pending sales, including the Northeast (6.2 percent), the South (4.2 percent), and the West (4.0 percent). The Midwest, meanwhile, saw a slight decline, posting a 0.4 percent drop.On an annual basis, the Northeast was the only region to report higher pending sales, coming in with an 8.3 percent improvement.NAR’s pending sales index comes a week after the group reported strong existing-home sales for July. Sales that month were at an adjusted annual rate of 5.15 million, the strongest so far this year. For the entire year, NAR predicts existing-home sales to total 4.98 million, down 2.1 percent from last year.
Turkish Cypriot press reports that President Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci have pledged a moratorium of hydrocarbons-related activity until July 31st are not only false but verge on the ridiculous, deputy government spokesman Victoras Papadopoulos said on Wednesday.He was referring to a report by Turkish daily Milliyet, which cited unnamed sources claiming that the two sides pledged to UN special envoy Espen Barth Eide to refrain from any moves regarding Cyprus’ natural gas until end July.Until then, the paper said, Anastasiades committed to not starting a new exploratory drill until then, while the Turkish Cypriot leader promised that the seismographic vessel Barbaros will not enter the blocks licensed by the Republic of Cyprus for exploratory drilling.Akinci, the report said, broached the issue at the negotiating table, warning Anastasiades that “the Greek Cypriot side’s activity in the Eastern Mediterranean will cause tension”, at which point Eide’s intervention triggered the deal.“Claims by the Turkish newspaper Milliyet of a supposed deal, mediated by the United Nations Secretary General’s Special Adviser for Cyprus, to delay Total’s drilling schedule by 12 days in July, in exchange, no less, for the Barbaros not illegally entering the Cypriot exclusive economic zone are not only false, they verge on the ridiculous,” Papadopoulos said in a statement.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppGet Maximum Privacy with Minimum EffortFigLeaf Beta AppUndoTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionOne Thing All Liars Have in Common, Brace YourselfTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionUndoTotal Battle – Online Strategy GameIf You’re PC User This Strategy Game Is A Must-Have!Total Battle – Online Strategy GameUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoTwo arrested in connection with attempted murderUndoby Taboolaby Taboola
