first_imgStay on target Amazon Employees Join Sept. 20 Global Climate WalkoutGeek Pick: Amazon Smart Plug Puts Alexa in Your Walls For years, there’s been a viral brain teaser floating around the Internet where you’re asked to count the number of Fs in a sentence. Amazon figures that amusing little mind bender could be turned into a CAPTCHA killer.In a patent that was awarded latest week, Amazon describes using these seemingly silly little puzzles as a way to distinguish between actual people and bots. You know the ones — the annoying, insidious spambots that fill your social feeds with garbage posts… or worse, the ones that try to break into your accounts on sites that have poor defenses against brute force attacks.Images in the patent filing show a couple of examples that could be used to sniff out bots:Here’s how this one works. Humans tend to miss certain characters — or even whole words, particularly articles — when we’re fluent speakers of a language. We tend to read a whole word (or often groups of words) at once, which makes counting individual letters quite tricky.A standard CAPTCHA test assumes that a human will be able to decipher the code and that a bot will struggle to do it. Amazon’s plan turns things upside down. It anticipates human failure. Here, a score that is too good will look like the work of a bot.Amazon also pitches the classic silk/milk gag and sentences made of jumbled up words — another great way to spot a human since we’re pretty good at reading whole words even if their constituent letters are all messed up.This is just a patent filing for now, but a real system like this… well, it’s definitely better than the one churning out these little gems (via Gizmodo):Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

TCI Marine Police to get faster boats

Vaccination Campaign Launching Ceremony Speech

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, July 22, 2017 – Providenciales – The Animal Health Services Division is the that section of the Agriculture Department that is charged with the responsibility to prevent the introduction and spread of animal disease, to protect and promote animal health, to control the movement of animals and animal products, into, from and within the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI), coupled to that is the control of animals.To prevent the development of a disease or to prevent its spread, we must destroy the agent, host and environment link. The combination of medicine and non-pharmaceutical measures work best to break such link. Veterinary care along with keeping our environment clean while reducing the number of animals roaming are some of the things we can do to prevent the development and spread of diseases.This vaccination program is a direct result of a suspected parvovirus outbreak that occurred on Grand Turk during the month of April of this year. It happened just one month into my acting as CVO commenced. As a result, the AHS put measures in place to combat the spread of the disease. Some of the steps inconvenienced those people who wanted to take their pets for walks, it also affected those traveling with pets. In the end, the measures served its purpose.  After the situation in Grand Turk, I put a disease surveillance program in place where the clinics report on the animal disease for the month. This surveillance mechanism led to an early detection of Canine Distemper in the later part of June.Further, the parvovirus crises provide us the opportunity to be proactive as such we have this vaccination campaign as a second intervention, I thought about it for a while, then I shared it with the AHS team, then with Mr. Dexter Gordon who was  Ag. Director at the time. Both Mr. Gordon and the AHS team endorsed the idea, I then called the veterinarians and welfare groups on the island to ask what are their thoughts about us collaborating on the First National Vaccination Campaign for Dogs in the Turks and Caicos Islands. They too thought it is what we need, as such lend their support, hence here we are today, putting our agendas aside in the interest of the animals.Why a vaccination campaign?Vaccines provide the best protection against viruses, to this end we have secured the Canine Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Parainfluenza, and Leptospirosis combination vaccine along with some Rabies vaccines. In the absence of vaccines, dogs are at risk of being infected with some of the most contagious diseases among canines.  Two of the diseases mentioned that the dogs would receive immunization against are zoonotic (can be spread from animals to humans). According to Center for Disease Control, 6 out of every10 infectious disease are of animal origin, and 3 or of every 4 new emerging diseases are also of animal origin. The interdependent relationship between humans and animals, for food, cloth, shelter, transportation, recreation, and companionship put people at risk of contracting a zoonotic disease.  Therefore, we would be wise to promote and protect animal health, for by so doing we are protecting our health and the health of our loved ones.How will the program work?There will be an in-clinic and an outreach aspect to the campaign.  From  Monday, July 24, 2017, until August 12, 2017, animal owners can take their dogs to Bark and Bliss, Wooding Vet Service or TCveterinary Association any day during their opening hours and they will administer the vaccines free. As it relates to the outreach aspect, three teams will be in an area at three different locations on Saturdays between 8:30 am to 12:30 pm. Again you can take your animals for the free vaccines. Tomorrow Saturday, one team will be at Walkin Marine Gas Station, another at the Jetty, opposite the government clinic and another at Grant’s Gas Station at the junction of Phase 2 and Millennium Highway. The next Saturday we will be in Kew Town and Five Cays. Then we will move to Glass Shack, Leeward Highway, The Bight, Jubba Sound, Long Bay and Leeward.After completing Providenciales, we will move to Grand Turk for one Saturday then on to South Caicos.Since there exists that interdependent relationship between humans and animals, we are encouraging all pet owners to take advantage of the free vaccines, to protect your animal’s health, in so doing you will be protecting your health and the health of your loved ones.Thank you Related Items:last_img read more

Why Does Coffee Make You Poop

first_imgThere are a few different reasons why coffee makes people feel the urge to poop. (Credit: Shutterstock)You may consume coffee to get your day started, as a pick-me-up, or to get you through a lengthy meeting. You may also drink it to, perhaps, get things moving along on schedule.About 29 percent of people claim they felt the urge to poop after drinking coffee, according to a commonly cited study from 1990. But why? Discover reached out to a gastroenterology expert to see if we could get to the bottom of it.Gastroenterology is the study of the digestive system, which starts at your mouth and ends at your butt. You might see a gastroenterologist for digestive diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome, heartburn and constipation. Basically, Jonathan Rosenberg, gastroenterologist and American Gastroenterological Association expert, knows a thing or two about how we poop.Coffee, Then PoopCoffee has caffeine in it, which is a stimulant. Caffeine speeds up the squeezing motion of your gut and increases the propulsion of material through the intestine, Rosenberg says.“The same reason it keeps you awake or makes your heart beat faster, it stimulates your gut and helps you go [poop],” Rosenberg says.He and many other experts look to caffeine for why we have coffee-related poops. But, like many things in science, we haven’t yet reached consensus. After all, people don’t report on a large-scale that they feel like they have to poop after ingesting other caffeine-filled drinks like soda or energy drinks. For many people, smoking a cigarette can also give their insides a bit of a nudge. Instead, some believe the compound chlorogenic acid, which creates higher levels of stomach acid and more gastric acid, could be the culprit.Rosenberg points out that at the end of the day people respond differently to coffee. There really isn’t a sure way to tell you why, exactly, many take a dump after sipping their cup-o-joe.“If you have a routine and coffee is part of that routine, it may be your bias that you’re associating going to the bathroom after having coffee,” he says. Plus, going number two depends on hydration levels, stress levels, and the amount of exercise a person gets.One thing we do know is that we all poop, or at least we all should.last_img read more

June 6, 2013 — Many providers, and even consumers, are now aware of low-dose technologies, such as computed tomography (CT) systems that enable high-quality images with low radiation. Today, a growing number of hospitals are also adopting monitoring technology that takes dose management to the next level.GE Healthcare offers DoseWatch, a radiation dose-tracking and reporting solution that can help facilities analyze patient exposure levels over time to ensure “as low as reasonably achievable radiation” use, or the ALARA principle.Harnett Health in Dunn, N.C. and Nash General Hospital in Rocky Mount, N.C., recently announced adoption of DoseWatch. Harnett Health is a private, nonprofit system and includes Betsy Johnson Hospital, a 101-bed hospital, and Central Harnett Hospital, a new 50-bed facility with plans to expand in the future. Nash General Hospital is a 280-bed acute care facility.Each site will use data captured by DoseWatch to identify outliers in radiation dose in imaging procedures in order to standardize and optimize protocols. Harnett Health and Nash join a growing numbers of hospitals adopting DoseWatch in the United States, and are helping to pioneer dose optimization and low-dose imaging.DoseWatch enables healthcare providers to track and evaluate dose levels on radiation emitting diagnostic and screening procedures. Providers can generate statistical analyses based on device, operator or protocol. By identifying areas of variation, hospitals can change how dose is administered to maximize effective, and safe, diagnostic imaging.GE experts will leverage data from DoseWatch for use in best practices training to help clinical staff at Harnett Health, Nash and other hospitals to further optimize dose organization-wide. DoseWatch supplements existing dose awareness technologies and can be used with equipment from various vendors.DoseWatch is part of the GE Blueprint for low dose, a comprehensive program that helps healthcare providers integrate CT technologies, education and process improvements, and data analysis to reduce patient radiation dose from Computed Tomography (CT) by up to 50 percent. Harnett Health and Nash General join more than 100 installations of DoseWatch around the globe to date. For more information: www.gehealthcare.com/en FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享last_img read more

Costa Concordia salvage continues

first_imgWhile a final decision will be made in March, a British seaport has been revealed as the front-runner to dismantle the hulking ocean-craft, expected to be worth hundreds of millions of pounds. The disastrous incident, which claimed the lives of 32 passengers, left the capsized vessel stranded where it struck the rocky coastline and sank, the Daily Mail reported. Source = ETB News: P.T. Two years after the infamous Costa Concordia wrecked off the coast of Italy’s Giglio island, an extensive operation to lift, tow away and dismantle the rusting cruise liner has been announced. The 114,500-tonne Costa Concordia was sank on 13 January 2012 when Captain Francesco Schettino allegedly sailed the ship too fast and too close to shore in an attempt to ‘salute’ local residents. Officials have now confirmed that the enormous ship will undergo a ‘parbuckling salvage’ operation in June, in an attempt to raise the hulking mass from its shallow grave and tow it away. Twelve different companies have been invited to bid for the eventual disassembling, scrapping and recycling contract, including ports in China, France, Italy, Turkey and the United Kingdom.last_img read more

Vaporized hot air is pumped inside the pipe and treats the wood for about one hour. When the wood comes out, it is ready to be bent into the form.(photos by Sue Kirsch, text by Shannon Mackenzie)The plywood was steamed and then bent with the framework crafted by our wonderful Randall Schultz. After bent, the pieces were dried out and glued together. After some sanding, they were given two coats of polyurethane.Here, Randall and workshop participant Joseph clamp the softened wood into the form.Pieces of metal were crafted in house for the window brackets and tracks, allowing for the windows to be opened and closed easily.While the window frames were constructed, the round pieces of plexiglass were prepared, drilled into for brackets and hinges to allow the operation of the window. Arthur lays out the drilling schedule on the protected pieces of plexiglass.The assembled windows were then installed at the East Housing unit. Currently, Randall, with the assistance of workshop participants and the maintenance crew are putting the final touches on the installed windows.last_img read more
