Moreover, for seeking clearances, the number of documents required has been slashed to five from 27.It is no longer mandatory for a builder to construct houses for economically-weaker sections (EWS) under a project.“In order to boost investment in real estate, we are allowing builders to either construct houses for the EWS category or deposit a fee for the Mukhya Mantri Awas Yojana,” said Jaivardhan Singh, Minister for Urban Development and Housing.In a bid to push urban public transport, curb air pollution and promote non-petroleum products, the government has decided to formulate the Madhya Pradesh Electric Vehicle Policy, 2019. There will be an exemption from the motor vehicle and registration taxes on the purchase of electric vehicles.Besides, electronic vehicles will be exempted from parking fee levied by urban bodies for the first five years. “New employment will be created by imparting training to engineers and technicians,” said the note.As for startups, the government is going to offer concessions to sectors such as pharmaceuticals, textiles and powerloom, and additional grant to manufacturing units run by women and Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe entrepreneurs.The Madhya Pradesh Startup Policy, which will come into effect in April next year, will “enhance facilities provided to incubators”.

(Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)In the aftermath of Ohio State’s 49-20 loss to Purdue that knocked them out of the Top 10 in the college football rankings, the analysts for FOX Sports gave their updated rankings for the College Football Playoffs.Robert Smith, Dave Wannstedt, Matt Leinart and Joel Klatt all agreed that Michigan, Notre Dame, Clemson, and Alabama would be No’s 4-1 in that order.The addition of Michigan makes sense. The Wolverines control their own destiny in the Big Ten – if they win out the regular season and claim the Big Ten Championship, there’s no reason they won’t be a playoff team.Brady Quinn and Tim Brando, however, did not feel that the Wolverines would be going to the playoffs. Instead, the pair though that LSU would make it..@NDFootball, @ClemsonFB and @AlabamaFTBL are locks through Week 8. Meanwhile, @UMichFootball and @LSUfootball battle it out for that 4th Playoff Picks spot. ? pic.twitter.com/x8k0BkKSI7— FOX Sports (@FOXSports) October 25, 2018Quinn had LSU at No. 4 and Notre Dame at No. 3, while Brando had those two reversed.LSU have a slightly harder path to the College Football Playoffs. Having lost to Florida already, the Tigers would need to beat Alabama on November 3rd and/or win the SEC Championship afterwards in order to have a chance.Ultimately, all six analysts held firm that Clemson would be No. 2 and Alabama would be the ultimate winner at No. 1.
zoom French liner CMA CGM has increased its capital investment in the TRAXENS startup as it strives to introduce the industry’s first containers equipped with tracking sensors.In 2015, TRAXENS, developer of innovative containers monitoring systems, will equip the first CMA CGM containers with its patented technology.The technology will enable the customers to know in real-time not only a container’s position, but also its temperature, the vibrations it will be subjected to, any attempted burglary, the presence of traces of specific substances in the air or even the regulatory status of the cargo.“With this technology, CMA CGM brings the shipping industry into a new era. In a world where information is key, we are taking a significant step ahead. We will now be able to collect data in real-time, which is equally important to us and to our clients. Containers are becoming “connected devices”,” said Elie Zeenny Senior Vice President, Group IT Systems.Michel Fallah, Founder and President of TRAXENS said that CMA CGM’s support allowed his company to develop a high-valued and unique solution that is attractive to all transport companies.Two other investment funds – CAAP Création (Crédit Agricole Group) and S.C.R. Provençale et Corse (BPPC Group) – are also part of the initiative.CMA CGM, third largest shipping company in the world, carries over 12 million containers every year.
Working with Philippine authorities and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has dispatched more than 5,500 blankets, almost 5,000 tarpaulins and 3,500 plastic mats, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).The World Food Programme (WFP) is also working with local authorities and the NGO Save the Children to prepare for possible distributions of food aid, based on needs assessments that are expected to be completed by tomorrow. Philippine authorities are leading the humanitarian response to the floods.At least nine provinces of Mindanao have experienced flash floods since heavy rains struck the east and south of the island earlier this month, with Maguindanao, North Cotabato and Cotabato City among the hardest-hit areas. But water levels have begun to recede.OCHA reported that an estimated 54,500 people are currently sheltering in evacuation centres while about 332,000 others are living with host families. 23 June 2011United Nations aid agencies are supplying blankets, plastic mats and tarpaulins to families on the Philippine island of Mindanao, where floods have displaced nearly 400,000 people this month.
Police in St. Catharines spent over two hours today negotiating with a man who had locked himself inside a house with what was believed to be a gun.Police were called to Scott Street at about 11:00 a.m. after reports that two men were fighting. One was said to have a handgun.The street was closed between Gineva and Vine Street while police spoke with the man.Officers eventually brought the situation under control and arrested the man. Nobody was injured.Police have not yet announced any charges.
Over 30 speakers were slated to take part in the debate, held under the agenda item entitled, “Illegal Israeli actions in Occupied East Jerusalem and the rest of the Occupied Palestinian Territory.” The draft text was introduced this morning by Ambassador Dumisani Shadrack Kumalo of South Africa on behalf of NAM. He noted that the Security Council had yet to officially react to that Israeli rejection, and called on the Member States to support the draft, sending the message that the Assembly was willing to take a stand on the issue of Palestine.The tenth emergency session was originally convened in 1997 after the Security Council in two separate meetings failed to adopt a draft resolution on a new Israeli settlement south of East Jerusalem. Using the “Uniting for Peace” formula, a special emergency session of the General Assembly was convened in April and again in July and November of 1997. It also resumed in 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2001.
A St-Hubert restaurant is seen in Montreal Thursday, March 31, 2016. The Quebec-based St-Hubert restaurant business has agreed to be acquired by the owner of the Swiss Chalet chain for $537 million. In addition to 117 restaurants, Cara Operations Ltd. will acquire two food manufacturing plants, two distribution centres and a real estate portfolio. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Peter McCabe by David Paddon, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 31, 2016 4:48 am MDT Last Updated Mar 31, 2016 at 2:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Rotisserie chicken marriage: Owner of Swiss Chalet buys St-Hubert for $537M TORONTO – Swiss Chalet and St-Hubert — a typically Canadian story of two solitudes.The two iconic brands of rotisserie chicken and special sauce have largely been operating in different parts of the country, with St-Hubert dominating the Quebec scene and Swiss Chalet operating mostly in English-speaking provinces.That seems unlikely to change, even though Quebec-based Groupe St-Hubert Inc. is to be added to an extensive roster of restaurants owned by Cara Operations Ltd. (TSX:CAO) in a $537-million deal expected to close this summer.In a conference call with analysts after the deal was announced Thursday, Cara chairman and CEO Bill Gregson stressed that he sees the St-Hubert management team as the experts both on the Quebec marketplace and in food manufacturing.“They’ve been the pioneers in taking a restaurant brand and converting it to commercial use at grocery stores, by selling a product at grocery retail,” Gregson said.“They have just done a phenomenal job at it and we have not, quite honestly.”Gregson says the food manufacturing and distribution part of St-Hubert’s business has unused capacity that can be used nationally to spread Cara’s many restaurant brands, which include Harvey’s, Milestones, Montana’s, Kelsey’s, East Side Mario’s, New York Fries and Bier Markt.In Quebec, it will be the St-Hubert team that decides how to integrate Cara brands, possibly through combo-stores such as those that sell Harvey’s hamburgers and Swiss Chalet chicken in some markets.As for spreading the St-Hubert restaurant banner outside its home province, Gregson was more cautious.“St-Hubert has had some success, but also some tougher times outside of Quebec — specifically some places in Ontario.”He said the focus for the St-Hubert team, for now, will be growing St-Hubert’s restaurant chain within Quebec and leading Cara’s push into that province, where it has a relatively small presence.“The St-Hubert team is the expert on what works for their brand and their geographic coverage,” Gregson said.“I’m sure that a lot the Cara team will learn from St-Hubert, and hopefully there’s a lot the St-Hubert team will learn from Cara as well.“There’s no prescribed formula. Every brand is always different based both on the brand and, in this case, based on the province.”Cara — which Gregson says is Canada’s third-largest restaurant business after Restaurant Brands International (Tim Hortons and Burger King) and McDonald’s — has 1,010 franchised and corporate restaurants, including 37 located outside Canada.Under the deal, it will add St-Hubert’s 117 locations, all but nine in Quebec, which operate in several formats including traditional full-service restaurants. The Toronto-area company, based in Vaughan, says it will use St-Hubert’s head office in Laval as its base in Quebec.Cara also acquires St-Hubert’s food manufacturing business, including two manufacturing plants, one owned distribution centre and one leased distribution centre. That part of St-Hubert makes two-thirds of its sales through corporate customers such as Sobeys, Loblaw, Costco and Metro, while the rest are to the mostly franchised St-Hubert restaurants.Jean-Pierre Leger, St-Hubert’s chairman and CEO and a member of the company’s founding family, said he spent five years searching for a Quebec buyer.“I looked at everything here,” he said. “I courted different groups but (in the end) we didn’t get married.”Leger said discussions took place with Investissement Quebec, the Caisse de depot et placement pension fund and the Quebec Federation of Labour’s Solidarity Fund, but that none of these groups has a mandate to take control of companies.He said he took his time before accepting Cara’s offer.“I turned 70 last fall,” he noted. “I’m not eternal. I have to think that the Groupe St-Hubert can continue without me.”Part of the price that Cara will pay is $50 million of its subordinate voting shares. The bulk of the transaction will be borrowed by Cara from Scotiabank and a syndicate of lenders. Cara said it also believes it will issue more stock, if market conditions are right.Cara’s largest shareholder, Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd. (TSX:FFH), has committed to spend about $200 million in purchasing any of the additional Cara stock that’s sold.Follow @DavidPaddon on Twitter.
On Thursday, Google launched the latest beta version of their Google Chrome browser. One intriguing item added to the latest version was support for WebGL, a 3D graphics API which doesn’t need a plug-in to work. The WebGL standard is managed by the Khronos Group, a non-profit consortium, whose WebGL working group includes Apple, Google, Mozilla and Opera.As you can imagine the best thing that WebGL has going for it is that you don’t have to download anything extra for your browser to interact with 3D graphics. Of course, what’s the good of a new goodie within a browser without having something to use it with. That’s why Google Labs is offering up the Google Body Browser.The Body Browser offers a detailed 3D model of the human body. Each anatomical layer of the female model can be pulled back and explored. In Google fashion you can even explore the model by typing in search terms including specific parts of the body such as the heart, brain or kidneys to name a few.PC Magazine had some problems getting the Body Browser to work. Initially, so did I since I thought you only needed the Chrome browser. Actually, you need to download the latest version that came out this week so if you haven’t already done so download that first. Once installed launch the updated Chrome browser and you should be able to access the Body Browser without an issue.via PCMag.com and Digital Trends.
The most common way to cool a processor at the moment is with a heatsink and fan combination on top of a thermal compound linking them to the surface of the chip. But there’s only so much heat that can be dissipated with such solutions and the thermal compound being used will degrade over time.Researchers at Stanford University, working with the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC), have come up with a new cooling material known as thermal nanotape. It can expand and contract like foam, has the thermal conductivity of copper, is cheap to produce, and doesn’t degrade like current thermal materials do. At the same time it is flexible allowing it to be applied in more situations while dealing with heat better than existing solutions.The reason the nanotape performs so well is due to a combination of binder materials surrounding carbon nanotubes. This allows for very high thermal conduction while remaining flexible to adjust as required on the conditions.Jon Candelarioa, director of packaging at SRC, commented:Researchers love to create useful materials and structures that we’ve never seen before, and this new thermal nanotape revolutionises the chip’s heat sink contact.Instead of being forced to rely upon the properties of just a single material, this combination gives the integrated circuits industry an opportunity to circumvent severe performance limitations and continue to improve packaging without adding cost. Such a material will make cooling easier as components continue to get smaller. In particular it is better suited to dealing with hotspots on a chip where heat generation is higher than normal. These will become more of an issue as processors get more complex and go below 20nm.While thermal nanotape has already been proven to work by the researchers, we shouldn’t expect to see it used to cool a commercial CPU or GPU until at least 2014.Read more at the SRC press release, via Thinq

THE OPERATORS OF a Cork shopping centre where dozens of cars were destroyed by a fire say there is “no time frame” for when owners will be reunited with their vehicles.More than 100 vehicles remain in the car park of Douglas Shopping Centre in Cork city, which was the scene of a large fire on Saturday evening.There were no casualties or injuries in the huge blaze, which started when one vehicle in the car park caught fire.The fire was contained to one section of the centre’s multi-storey car park, but a large number of parked vehicles were damaged or destroyed and a significant amount of damage was also caused to the building.The scene is being preserved by gardaí and the shopping centre remains closed until the structure of the building has been deemed to be safe. In a statement yesterday evening, the operators of the shopping centre thanked emergency services for their response to the incident, and said that an information line had been opened for those whose vehicles were still in the car park.They also confirmed that engineers working at the site said that both the building and its adjoining car park could not be accessed until further notice.“[We] are trying to come up with a plan for removals from the car park to have these vehicles handed back to you but have no time from on this either yet,” the statement said.“We are not in a position to advise anything else rather than the above for now but wish to assure you that our team and our consultants are treating this with the highest urgency.”Bartosz Mieszala, the manger of the shopping centre, said that many vehicles in the car park were “completely destroyed”.“Obviously getting those cars back to their owners is a key item for us at the moment,” he told Newstalk Breakfast.“The problem is that they still won’t be able to drive them out. We looked at alternatives yesterday, but when we lost access to the building, it made it a little bit more complicated.“We’ve concentrated on collecting a database and we have a contact number for all of the drivers.”Anyone with a vehicle still inside the car park is asked to call 087 9509800.

“Yes, I am conscious that the FTP (2014-19) was due even as of April 1, last year. Hopefully, we will come out (with FTP) soon,” Commerce and Industry Minister Nirmala Sitharaman told reporters here. The minister said that the delay in announcement of FTP is not the reason for declining exports. “I differ from this view. Even when the FTP was explicit and was there in place between 2009 and 2014 exports suffered,” she said. However, Sitharaman added that a policy in place helps in giving direction. Also Read – I-T issues 17-point checklist to trace unaccounted DeMO cash”A policy in place does help because you are able to identify sectors,” she added. Talking about the delay in unveiling of the policy, she said that the new five year FTP requires comprehensive deliberations on various sectors and exporting destinations. “The new policy needs to be out of the box and it has to support India’s exports in terms of looking at sectors and their capability and new and traditional markets of the world…so a comprehensive exercise of how to help exports, how better focus on areas which have great potential for India’s exports have to be worked out in great details, she said. The ministry has done an extensive job on it, she said. The foreign trade policy, which is usually announced in April, provides guidelines for enhancing exports with the overall objective of pushing economic growth and generating employment.Under the policy, the government gives fiscal incentives to exporters under different schemes such as Market Access Initiative, Marketing Development Assistance, Vishesh Krishi and Gram Udyog Yojana.

Healthcare organizations are feeling the strain of implementing these systems with too few skilled resources, as government regulatory compliance mandates have already burdened their strained IT assets. At the same time, most must also ensure regulatory compliance while guaranteeing high reliability and strong security. Many are looking to third-party suppliers for assistance.According to Allen Skipper, chief commercial officer for Peak 10, pressures from government, budgets and keeping up with evolving requirements, coupled with the heightened demand for technology to support the patient experience, translate to a critical need for knowledgeable IT partners to provide access to technology, while serving as a collaborative resource to ensure staff are versed in rapidly changing security mandates.”It’s not enough for cloud and data center services providers to help customers maximize their IT assets,” said Skipper. “It’s critical for these partners to continually engage in initiatives to better understand the needs of today’s healthcare IT professionals now and in the future, driving innovation and enabling developments to further enhance patient care quality and safety.”For more information: www.peak10.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 A nurse examines a patient in the Emergency Department of Cincinnati Children’s, where researchers successfully tested artificial intelligence-based technology to improve patient recruitment for clinical trials.

The majority (94 percent) also noted that complying with regulations influences IT strategy and decision-making. With rare exception, respondents claimed they lack the expertise necessary to navigate the maze of government regulations.These were among the key findings in The Peak 10 National IT Trends in Healthcare Study in which C-level executives and information technology professionals at 149 United States healthcare organizations were asked to provide their insights into industry challenges and the future state of the healthcare industry.From an IT perspective, healthcare is under tremendous pressure to make non-revenue producing investments and to divert scarce resources away from innovation and new application development. According to the study, cost cutting and cost containment are also cause for concern for healthcare organizations and exacerbated by the fact that many IT departments are already under-staffed and under-funded.Other key findings from the study include:Healthcare companies are cautiously but steadily moving into the cloud with software as service (SaaS) and non-mission critical workloads (administrative/corporate systems). Cloud adoption is mainly driven by regulatory mandates around electronic health records (EHRs).A 77-percent majority of hospitals, biotech firms, pharmaceuticals and insurance providers are seeking partners and assistance to help them maintain high reliability, while 70 percent of respondents said they need partners to assist with security and data privacy concerns.Mobility, EHR, patient portals and regulation are the critical technology topics that will make the greatest impact on healthcare IT environments.Insurance organizations’ budgets are under the most pressure: a 59-percent majority indicated that their IT budgets would either decline (25 percent) or remain static (38 percent) over the next two years. By contrast only one-third – 34 percent – of insurance firms polled said IT budgets would increase over the next 24 months.Presently, about 50 percent of IT healthcare companies surveyed indicated they use a third-party integrator or partner to assist them with their IT strategy.Among the 50 percent of healthcare IT companies that use a third-party integrator/partner to assist with IT strategy, 70 percent cited depth of technical knowledge as the top reason. This was followed by 60 percent who indicated that third-party partners alleviate the time and resource constraints on internal IT staff.
