TORONTO — Affordability is among the top Internet service concerns for Canadians, especially those living in rural areas, a new report has found.One out of three Canadians is satisfied with the cost of their home Internet, according to a report commissioned by Canada’s broadcast regulator.Two out of three Canadians believe that telecommunications prices should be comparable in urban and rural settings. People in rural locations tend to pay more for Internet and were more likely to have cut back on Internet use over the past 12 months.Canadians’ telecom complaints declined 16% in second half of 2015, watchdog saysBig Three telecom companies say they’re winning the customer service battle. But are they?CRTC bundles telecom and TV complaints together with new watchdogOverall, one out of five Canadians limited their web use over the past year, the report found. Most often this was due to Internet service or equipment costs, or capacity constraints.It’s crucial for Canadians to have access to basic telecommunications services, said Jean-Pierre Blais, chairman and CEO of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).The CRTC will hold public hearings on the issue in Gatineau, Que., from April 11-29 as part of its ongoing consultation on basic telecom services, launched by the federal agency last April.OpenMedia, an advocacy group, said the survey results are unfortunate but not surprising.Canadians pay some of the highest Internet rates in the world, said the group’s Josh Tabish in a statement.CRTC commissioned a report from EKOS Research Associates based on the answers of more than 30,000 Canadians to a questionnaire. The research group also questioned another 1,600 Canadians, who were a sample group representative of the country’s population.The Canadian Press
Teplitz made this remark during a speech at the Iftar hosted by the embassy on Sunday evening. The United States has urged Maldives and Sri Lanka to collaborate to defeat terrorism.The Ambassador of the United States to Sri Lanka and the Maldives, Alaina Teplitz encouraged the Maldives to cooperate with all nations to prevent terrorist acts from taking place and stressed that there is ever more a need for collaboration between Maldives and Sri Lanka, than there ever was, RaajjeMV reported. “This is the moment for all nations to be reminded of the need to work together. This is something we want to encourage. It can be part of our cooperative and global efforts to get ahead of terrorism,” Teplitz said. She went on to state that there must be common values among every one no matter which ethnicity, religion or nationality they belong to and these values are important now more than ever following the Easter bombings in Sri Lanka.
Robinson Cano is currently going through contract negotiations with the New York Yankees and has reportedly asked the organization for $300 million.Cano is looking for a 10-year deal, meaning that he’s pushing to become the top-paid baseball player ever, by making $30 million a year.Alex Rodriguez received a record $275-million deal from the Yankees, so it wasn’t a surprise that Cano would ask for so much.Cano is the top free agent on the market, but the Yankees have not counter-offered in the range that he is looking for, so he will possibly test the free-agent market. It is unknown whether any organization would pay that much for the player.The Chicago Cubs reportedly like Cano, but don’t see themselves in contention to get him.The Yankees have said publicly that they don’t want to negotiate another huge contract. According to a source, the team has already made a “substantial” offer, but it possibly wasn’t enough to close the deal.The Yankees’ made an offer of $140 million for seven years to Cano during spring training, but raised their bid recently. At this time, the information on the exact amount has not been released.
“Win and you’re in.” It’s safe to say that phrase is lingering in the minds of players and coaches for the Ohio State men’s lacrosse team. With a win at the fifth annual “Showdown in the ‘Shoe” this coming Saturday, the team would punch its ticket to the Eastern College Athletic Conference tournament. The Buckeyes will face-off against Air Force at 11 a.m. live on the Big Ten Network right before the OSU spring football game, for which about 60,000 presale tickets have already been distributed. The team isn’t nervous about playing in Ohio Stadium, coach Nick Myers said. Myers said it was a challenge last week against Michigan in their stadium, but overall the team is excited about another opportunity. “This is the fifth year I’ve been a part of this event, and it’s like no other in the game of lacrosse,” Myers said. “I think it really speaks to the commitment the university has made to get behind this game. A lot of fans are being exposed to what we feel like is a great game and it’s just huge for Midwest lacrosse.” If the Buckeyes win against Air Force Saturday, the team will make a strong stance for the No. 3 seed in ECAC tournament. With Loyola (Maryland) undefeated in the conference, the win would set up a possible back-to-back matchup with Fairfield University in the last matchup of the regular season, as well as the first-round game of the ECAC tournament for the Buckeyes. The winner of the ECAC tournament will get an automatic bid into the 2012 NCAA Men’s Lacrosse tournament. The ECAC tournament begins on May 2 in Denver. “We’re hungry,” Myers said. “I think we realize how close we are, we just feel like we still haven’t really played our best.” The team hit a rough spot in the middle of the season with a record of 1-5 in the month of March. Two big victories against Hobart College and Michigan in the past two weeks have opened the doors to the postseason for the Buckeyes. With only two games remaining in the season, senior midfielder Brock Sorensen said the team understands the situation they are in. “I think there has been more of a focus as the season has gone on,” Sorensen said. “Our defense has continued to play great for us and we know that is the backbone of our team. It’s just getting our offense to click and getting all 44 guys to chip in any way that they can.” Sorensen has recorded nine goals this season, the highest in his Buckeye career. The defense is ranked 10th in team defense in the NCAA, only allowing 7.75 goals a game. Redshirt senior defenseman Matt Kawamoto said stat resulted from a lot of hard work put in by his teammates this year. Everyone is buying into the game plan and everyone is just staying focused to that goal, Kawamoto said. Kawamoto was announced as a finalist for the Lowe’s Senior Class award on April 4. The winner will be announced during the 2012 NCAA Division I Men’s Lacrosse Championship weekend, which will be held May 26-28 in Boston. “To be put in the same category with those other ten guys, it’s a really huge honor,” Kawamoto said.

Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Autobots, transform and roll out!A real-life Transformer made its debut this week, shifting from sports car to humanoid robot in about a minute and a half.Dubbed J-deite RIDE, the machine smoothly converts from wheel-driven vehicle to 13-foot-tall bipedal bot, and back again—while carrying two passengers.It can be controlled from the driver’s seat, or remotely via a wireless network.Brave Robotics unveiled its Optimus Prime-esque invention on Wednesday in Japan.“I grew up believing that robots had to be capable of such things, which became my motivation to develop this robot,” Brave Robotics CEO Kenji Ishida told Reuters Television.More than an expensive toy, the machine was created to inspire others, according to Ishida, who hopes to develop an even larger robot (up to 16.5 feet) by “the 2020s.”J-deite RIDE will make an appearance at Tokyo’s Golden Week DOKIDOKI Festa All Working Cars Assemble event on May 5, and is expected to attend the IAAPA Attractions Expo 2018 in Florida this November.The IRL Transformer was co-developed with SoftBank subsidiary Asratec and amusement ride manufacturer Sansei Technologies, which plans to commercialize RIDE-like robots as converting go-karts or “transforming demonstrations at parades.”In vehicle mode (via Brave Robotics)The partners also plan to hire J-deite RIDE out for use at exhibitions, promotions, event performances, etc.There is no word on how much the hulking machine cost to build, or possible rental fees, but you can expect a hefty price tag.From children’s toy to blockbuster media franchise, Transformers have long activated imaginations. After all, how cool would it be to press a button on your dashboard and moments later be traipsing through traffic from inside a giant android?Cars aren’t the only option: Last year, a Makuake crowdfunding campaign released a Transformers-branded phone accessory that actually, well, transforms into an action figure.
CT-Centric WorkflowWhile there have been numerous efficiency gains in the area of radiology IT, performing the actual imaging exam is riddled with inefficiencies.A new model for image workflow that centers around the modality is closed loop imaging. Conceptualized by Dr. Chang, and developed in collaboration with Philips Healthcare, Chang has reconfigured the way radiology will approach medical imaging in the future.“The goal of the closed loop imaging trial is to have my cake and eat it too — I don’t care how complex a protocol is, it will get set up perfectly — both the injector and the scanner — and without negatively impacting efficiency,” said Dr. Chang. “The only way to do this is to treat for the first time the modality as an IT device.”Step one, as soon as the patient checks into the hospital, the system will automatically extract the lab values, the pathology reports, the history – not just get the requisition but get the clinical context from the electronic medical record (EMR).Step two is to identify the patient. When the patient comes in with an RFID tag, the patient is automatically identified, the scanner automatically knows who it is, automatically checks the electronic protocol, and transmits that protocol in a language that the scanner and injector can understand natively – and set itself up.“One of the aspects of this closed loop imaging is to optimize the setup electronically — treating the scanners and injectors as IT devices driven by the protocoling tool,” explained Chang.Preload Contrast ProtocolsStandard protocols on all power injectors can make a significant impact in the ability for technologists to deliver exams quickly with consistent quality throughout the imaging chain. Dr. Sahani concurs that new power injectors with preloaded contrast media protocols can level the playing field for radiologists and technologists across the globe.“In medical imaging, there is typically a trickle-down effect in technology adoption. While many academic centers are operating well beyond the 64-slice CT range, smaller hospitals across the country are just acquiring 64-slice scanners after replacing older 16-slice scanners,” said Dr. Sahani. “Devising these protocols for each scanner type can be a daunting task as numerous exam factors must be considered with respect to the CT equipment, the contrast media parameters (rate of injection and volume), organ type being studied and the patient’s weight.”“Since several years of clinical and research experience from major academic centers has been invested in creating these protocols, it empowers a CT user with new and advanced capabilities for their practice for all of their technology.”Ticking ClockStudies show that the adoption of picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) have increased radiologist productivity by 70 percent over the past 15 years.1 GE Healthcare is spearheading a study to take radiology productivity to the next level.The goal of the project is to understand the exact work efforts of a radiologist and make changes to products/solutions to take the wasted effort away through better software and/or configuration. By enlisting the GE Lean Six Sigma Black Belts, researchers will evaluate radiologist workflow processes and apply industrial engineering techniques combined with Lean Six Sigma methodology to the radiology workflow.Because Lean focuses on process speed, GE’s Black Belts started their analysis by taking a stop watch to time the radiologist’s workflow. This allowed them to analyze process flow and identify waste at each step in a process. The team will then identify and eliminate non-value added steps and maximize value-add across the entire process. By interviewing dozens of radiologists and capturing exam readings on video, Black Belts are evaluating opportunities to reduce wait time, excessive mouse clicks, redundant actions, and repetitious movements.The next step is to quantify the cost of waste in the process.The Black Belts will then employ Six Sigma tools to reduce variation in the process and emphasize elimination of defects or errors.Simple changes to workflow or product enhancements could allow GE Healthcare IT to help radiologists make the next leap to increased efficiency, while reducing potential for errors.

The biggest challenge in applying best practices in radiology workflow is seeing the big picture. The entire imaging cycle includes identifying the patient data, conducting the imaging exam according to the proper protocols, and then streamlining and processing the data in a timely manner.“The clock doesn’t start and stop in the radiology department,” said Paul Chang, M.D., professor and vice-chairman of radiology informatics, medical director of pathology informatics, University of Chicago Hospitals. “It starts when the physician first decides that imaging might contribute to the patient care and only ends when that same physician gets the report. What good is it to have a patient scanned in two seconds if I don’t read the study for four hours?”CT Workflow InefficienciesAs the volume of medical imaging data have grown exponentially, implementing effective workflow practices has become a challenge.“With the advent of multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) and the subsequent advances in MDCT technology, radiologists have witnessed tremendous growth in CT exam volume,” said Dushyant Sahani M.D., director of CT, Massachusetts General Hospital, associate professor of Radiology, Harvard Medical School, division of abdominal imaging and intervention. “In most outpatient practices, including the one at Massachusetts General Hospital, contrast enhanced CT (CECT) contributes between 40 to 60 percent of exam volume, and it entails several steps and additional time in comparison to unenhanced exams.”Increasingly, exams with complex scanning protocols and sophisticated processing requirements are now being performed on a routine basis. According to Dr. Sahani, this has made simplifying workflow in the outpatient, as well as emergency department settings, critical to enhancing CT efficiency.“With the CT reimbursement for imaging centers and outpatient services getting gradually reduced, improvements in CT productivity and reduced cost for the operations is therefore desired,” said Sahani.“Moreover, consistency in the exam quality and patient safety remains a priority to sustaining appropriate recognition and growth in CT. Although the power injector used for CM delivery is integral to MDCT use worldwide, the injector’s performance is often an unaccounted factor in the CT workflow,” noted Sahani.

Related Content A Matter of MetricsAccess to “real-time” data can have tremendous impact on workflow efficiency and an organization’s bottom line.One way to monitor performance is through digital dashboards, which provide a sense of how the practice is doing on a daily or even minute to minute basis. At Manatee Diagnostic Center, administrators refer to its RIS-embedded data analytics solution (Merge’s Fusion RIS/PACS and its Practice Analysis module) to identify and address workflow inefficiencies across its five locations.The system reviews payment history at each of Manatee’s locations and calculates income for each modality at each facility. This allows the group to measure the profitability of each entity in its organization.It also assists in tracking the total number of exams being read by a radiologist. “While we continue to use the teleradiology services, we are analyzing the potential of keeping more work inside,” explained Davis W. Graham, executive director/CFO of Bradenton, Florida-based Manatee Diagnostic Center. Administrators can quickly see if one doctor has a heavier load than others, and redistribute exam reading volumes.With data at their fingertips, administrators can also identify openings on the schedule across its various locations. This capability helps schedulers offer patients various options, while also striving to meet the referring doctor’s request. Additionally, by keeping exam openings to a minimum, productivity can be maximized.“Many radiology practices evaluate a previous quarter’s data to make important strategic decisions about an upcoming quarter or year, including decisions about marketing tactics,” said Graham. The RIS-based Practice Analysis system provides immediate access to marketing data. As such, Graham and his team are better prepared to make informed decision when considering expansion, targeting direct mail, and purchasing advertising.While macro-level data is important, micro-level data provided in real time can allow organizations to be nimble to identify and eliminate inefficiencies, gage performance, and reduce costs.As Dr. Chang sees it, developing best practices in radiology workflow requires looking at “the entire imaging loop” from start to finish.Reference:1.

The Philippines during the initial quarter of 2017, has recorded a growth of 11.4% in tourist arrival, welcoming 1.784 million tourists compared to 1.6 million in the same period last year.Tourism Assistant Secretary, Frederick M Alegre, has said that this growth can be attributed to the 160,000 airline seats which were added this year thanks to new direct flights connecting local secondary airports to South Korea and also China.He went on to add that out of these new flights that are introduced, the ones from Kalibo to Shanghai, Cebu to Wuhan, Clark to Incheon, South Korea, Chongqing to Chengdu and Hangzhou to Chengdu would be functional.Alegre also informed in less than a year, the Philippines had signed tourism deals with Russia, Turkey, Thailand, Cambodia and China. Further stating that arrival of Chinese tourists in the Philippines had risen by as much as 30.3% at 240,354. The U.S. tourists, on the other hand, had increased by 11.6% at 258,097. South Koreans continue to top the list of travellers in the Philippines with 440,865 tourist arrivals, while arrivals from Taiwan reached 64,896, a rise of 24.6%.India demonstrated a marked improvement in arrivals by 21.63% to 26,905. Tourists from Japan were around 106,251, marking an increase of 15.8%. The tourists from Canada were up by almost 14.2% touching 60,838 and the ones from Germany were about 29,301, going up by 2.38%.
Share Justice Department Suit Accuses Quicken of Improperly Underwriting FHA-Insured Loans April 23, 2015 484 Views Less than a week after Quicken Loans sued the Department of Justice and HUD, accusing them of coercing the Detroit-based lender into making false statements, the DOJ filed a lawsuit against Quicken accusing the lender of improperly originating and underwriting FHA-insured mortgages, according to an announcement from the DOJ on Thursday afternoon.”Those who do business with the United States must act in good faith, including lenders that participate in the FHA mortgage insurance program,” said Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Benjamin C. Mizer of the Justice Department’s Civil Division. “To protect the housing market and the FHA fund, we will continue to hold responsible lenders that knowingly violate the rules.”According to the government’s complaint, Quicken, the country’s largest lender of FHA loans, knowingly submitted or caused the submission of hundreds of improperly underwritten FHA-insured loans as a direct endorsement lender (DEL) from September 2007 through December 2011. HUD relies on DELs to ensure that the loans endorsed for FHA insurance follow proper guidelines, since neither FHA or HUD reviews the underwriting of a loan before it is approved for FHA insurance. If a loan that has been approved under the DEL program ends later defaults, the loan’s holder may submit an insurance claim to HUD for the losses caused by the default.The government alleges that Quicken had a “value appeal” process in place where Quicken would request an inflated value for a home appraisal if the appraisal was too low to approve for a loan, and that the lender granted “management exceptions” in which managers would allow underwriters to break the rules to approve a loan. According to the complaint, Quicken’s most senior executives were aware of these practices based on several emails, including one that said, ”I don’t think the media and any other mortgage company (FNMA, FHA, FMLC) would like the fact we have a team who is responsible to push back on appraisers questioning their appraised values.”The government’s complaint alleges that HUD has paid millions of dollars in insurance claims due to defaulted loans that were approved with Quicken’s deficient underwriting practices. The complaint also claims that Quicken did not have adequate controls in place to identify the deficient loans, and it failed to report to HUD the deficient loans it did identify.”The complaint alleges that Quicken approved loans that should not have been approved and submitted them for FHA insurance,” HUD Inspector General David A. Montoya said. “The alleged cost to the FHA insurance fund was millions of dollars and hopefully this serves as reinforcement to Quicken that doing the wrong thing really never is worth it.”The DOJ is seeking “the amount of the United States’ single damages to be proven at trial, plus civil penalties as are required by law in the amount of $5,500 to $11 ,000 per violation of the False Claims Act, post-judgment interest, costs, and such other relief as may be necessary and proper” in addition to “compensatory damages” and “such other relief as the court deems just and proper,” according to the complaint.In response, Quicken accused the DOJ of perpetrating a “witch hunt” against them and of continuing “abusive practices.””The complaint filed today is riddled with inaccurate and twisted conclusions from fragments of a handful of emails cherry-picked from 85,000 documents that the DOJ subpoenaed,” Quicken said in a statement on its website. “Worse than that, the DOJ appears to be basing their entire case on a handful of out-of-context email conversations skimmed from the communication between Quicken Loans employees. These conversations relate to a miniscule number of loans out of the nearly 250,000 FHA mortgages the company has closed over the past seven years.” Click here to see Quicken’s full statement.Last week, Quicken sued both HUD and the DOJ, claiming that the government agencies have been trying to bully the company into making “blatantly false” statements and demanding the company pay “an inexplicable penalty or face legal action” following a three-year investigation of the company’s underwriting practices.”After three years of struggling to understand the DOJ’s position and methodology,” Quicken CEO Bill Emerson said last week, “it is time to ask the court to intervene. It’s a shame the DOJ would choose to attack the country’s largest and highest quality FHA lender … at the very time our nation needs expanded access to credit for middle-class Americans who benefit most from the FHA program.”Click here to see a copy of the DOJ’s complaint against Quicken. in Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, News HUD Justice Department Lawsuits Mortgage Underwriters Quicken Loans 2015-04-23 Seth Welborn
Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo 0 Comments Share “It was fine,” Stanton said of the mood in the huddle when he entered the game. “I got in there and said, ‘We need to go down there and get a touchdown. There’s no reason why we can’t.’”They did, needing just four plays to go 89 yards, with the capper being a 48-yard bomb from Stanton to rookie John Brown. The Cardinals took the lead on the play, and from there the rout was on.Patrick Peterson intercepted two passes — returning one of them for a touchdown — and Antonio Cromartie took an Austin Davis fumble back 14 yards for a score of his own. The 31-14 final belies how this game actually went, but then again, the 2014 Cardinals seem to belie conventional wisdom.They’ve faced all kinds of adversity this season, yet nothing seems to faze them. “We didn’t fold; we bent but we didn’t break,” safety Tyrann Mathieu said. “We have been going through this since the spring. We have a lot of guys going down and have had guys suspended. I think we really stepped up and showed that we are a mature football team with great leaders. That’s how we finished out that game today.”Because they were able to persevere, the Cardinals now find themselves with an 8-1 record. It’s still the best mark in the NFL, and they still have a two-game lead in the ultra-competitive NFC West. GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Arizona Cardinals were trailing 14-10 with less than 10 minutes remaining.Their starting quarterback, Carson Palmer, had left the field on a cart with a knee injury, and whatever air was present in University of Phoenix Stadium had been sucked out. Enter Drew Stanton, the backup QB who led the Cardinals to a pair of victories earlier in the season when Palmer was unable to play due to nerve issues in his throwing shoulder. They were never really anyone’s favorite to win much with Palmer, and they certainly won’t be picked to go far if he’s out for an extended period of time. Yet, all season long people have been wondering what it would take to break this team, and they’re still waiting for the answer. Because if you think it could be the loss of Palmer, think again. The fact that Stanton has already led the team to a pair of tough wins this season was enough to win over the locker room.“New York and San Francisco, we’re very confident he can go out there and get it done,” receiver Larry Fitzgerald said. “He’s got a lively arm, he understands what he is doing, he knows where he wants to go with the football, he’s got great command of the huddle and guys really believe in him.”They believe in Stanton as well as the system that has been put into place. In all but one game this season, whenever the team has needed a play, someone has delivered.In New York it was Ted Ginn, Jr. returning a fourth-quarter punt for a touchdown. Against the 49ers the following week, it was Stanton finding John Brown for a pair of scores. Just a couple weeks ago it was Palmer hitting Brown with a 75-yard bomb to beat the Eagles — which was followed by a great defensive stand in the final seconds — and this weekend, well, it was a collective effort. Which, no doubt, is the sign of a good team.While there’s no doubt losing Palmer is a blow — it was described as “tough,” “difficult” by different players, while Fitzgerald noted that they’re all human, so seeing their captain and friend lying on the ground is tough to deal with, if any team is able to weather this storm, you’d have to think it’s these Cardinals.It’s not that they have an exorbitant amount of talent to offset their injuries or a favorable schedule to help them skirt by, but instead it’s a mentality, a toughness that cannot be quantified yet is very much apparent that gives reason for optimism. “That’s one thing about this bunch,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said. “It’s whoever is next up is ready to roll. I think Drew led the charge early in the season for us and everybody else had already bought in, but they really bought in then.” – / 39 Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact
