Washington: A man armed with a rifle threw incendiary devices at an immigration jail in Washington state early Saturday morning, then was found dead after four police officers arrived and opened fire, authorities said. The Tacoma Police Department said the officers responded at about 4 am to the privately run Tacoma Northwest Detention Center, a US Department of Homeland Security detention facility that holds migrants pending deportation proceedings.

The shooting took place about six hours after a peaceful rally in front of the detention center, police spokesman Loretta Cool said. She said another rally was planned for later Saturday, but it would have to be held in a different area because of the investigation into the police shooting. Also Read – This is why Denmark, Sweden and Germany are considering a meat tax Advertise With Us Police said the man caused a vehicle to catch fire and that he attempted to ignite a large propane tank and set buildings on fire. Police said that besides the rifle, he had a satchel and flares. Police said officers called out to the man, and shots were fired. Cool said all four officers fired their weapons, but she didn’t have specific details of what took place. Advertise With Us She said the officers weren’t wearing body cameras, but the area is covered by surveillance cameras from the detention center. She said she didn’t know if the man fired at the officers. After the gunfire, officers took cover, contained the area and set up medical aid a short distance away, police said. Officers then located the man and determined he had been shot and was dead at the scene. His name hasn’t been released. Authorities say investigators are processing the scene and police are continuing to investigate. No law enforcement officers were injured. The four Tacoma police officers who fired their weapons have been placed on paid administrative leave as is standard in officer-involved shootings. A motive for the man’s actions hasn’t been determined, Cool said. GEO Group, which runs the 1,575-bed Northwest Detention Center, in an email to The Associated Press said baseless accusations about how detainees are treated at its facilities “have led to misplaced aggression and a dangerous environment for our employees, whose safety is our top priority. Violence of any kind against our employees and property will not be tolerated. We are thankful for the quick and brave action by the Tacoma Police Department, which prevented innocent lives from being endangered.” GEO Group said the detention center in Tacoma has modern amenities with air conditioning, recreational activities, a bed for every individual and medical care available at all hours. Last year, a federal judge ruled that Washington state could pursue its lawsuit seeking to force GEO Group to pay minimum wage for work done by detainees at the detention center. In November, a Russian asylum-seeker who conducted a hunger strike to protest the conditions at the detention center died by suicide, the Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled. Mergensana Amar, 40, was taken off life support after attempting to kill himself while in voluntary protective custody at the detention center on November 15, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement said.
George Hotz shot to fame in 2007 when he unlocked AT&T’s exclusive grip on the iPhone in the US, and again when he reverse-engineered the PlayStation 3 – before being sued by Sony.Earlier this year Hotz uncovered major security flaws in Google’s Chrome browser – but instead of taking him to court, Google paid him $150,000 (£87,000) and has now offered him a role within its new bug-hunting team to be known as Project Zero.Announcing what has until now been a secretive and shadowy group within Google, security engineer Chris Evans said:”You should be able to use the web without fear that a criminal or state-sponsored actor is exploiting software bugs to infect your computer, steal secrets or monitor your communications.”Yet in sophisticated attacks, we see the use of ‘zero-day’ vulnerabilities to target, for example, human rights activists or to conduct industrial espionage. This needs to stop. We think more can be done to tackle this problem.”TransparencyProject Zero is Google’s contribution to making the internet a safer place. It says it will inform companies affected of any bugs it finds, giving them between 60 to 90 days to issue a patch before disclosing the flaw publicly on an external database.”Once the bug report becomes public [typically once a patch is available], you’ll be able to monitor vendor time-to-fix performance, see any discussion about exploitability, and view historical exploits and crash traces. We also commit to sending bug reports to vendors in as close to real-time as possible, and to working with them to get fixes to users in a reasonable time,” Evans said.Google has been seeking to improve its own security recently in the wake of revelations by Edward Snowden showing the ease with which government agencies can capture its customers’ information.It recently announced a plan to build end-to-end encryption into its Gmail service.Along with Evans and Hotz – who will be joining the team as an intern – the Project Zero team features some heavyweights from the security industry. New Zealander Ben Hawkes is renowned for discovering dozens of flaws in the likes of Adobe Flash and Microsoft Office while the UK’s Tavis Ormandy recently highlighted how anti-virus companies can include zero-days to make their customers less secure.AltruisticAlso joining the team will be fellow Brit Ian Beer, who recently revealed flaws in Apple’s iOs, Mac OS X and Safari software.Speaking to Wired ahead of the announcement of the new Google division, Evans said the purpose of the group was “primarily altruistic” as it will be effectively paying to find and fix flaws in the software of other companies.However the net effect will also benefit Google, Evans believes: “If we increase user confidence in the internet in general, then in a hard-to-measure and indirect way, that helps Google too.”
Equity investors have seen their wealth evaporate by about Rs 3 lakh crore since the beginning of this year, as the recent volatile sessions weighed on the valuations of companies listed on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).The total market capitalisation of all listed stocks on the BSE currently stands at Rs 95.40 lakh crore, down Rs 2.95 lakh crore as compared to last year. Overall, the benchmark BSE Sensex is down 1,635.92 points or 5.94% so far this year, taking into account Thursday’s closing of 25,863.50.Investors’ wealth rose by a massive Rs 28 lakh crore last year, with the valuations of all listed entities reaching 98.36 lakh crore. In 2014, the Sensex went up by 6,328.74 points or 30%, recording its highest yearly gains since 2009, PTI reported.Markets have been trading weak for the past two quarters on the back of several factors such as Chinese economic slowdown, US Federal Reserve rate hike, and disappointing corporate earnings, among others.The Sensex touched an all-time high of 30,024.74 on 4 March, 2015, amid growing optimism over reforms by the Modi government. But, the index gave up all the gains in the past few months and fell to a one-year low level of 24,833.54 on 8 September.A sharp fall in the index was led by both domestic and external factors. A sudden yuan devaluation move by China to boost the country’s exports saw the Sensex plunging by 1624.51 points or 5.94% on 24 August, posting its biggest intra-day fall in seven years.Besides, the failure to pass key reforms bills such as Land Acquisition bill and Goods and Services Tax (GST) bill led to foreign investors offloading their holdings in the domestic stock markets.
Listen 00:00 /01:27 Amy BishopLondon-based artist Stephen Wiltshire creating a panoramic cityscape of Houston.A couple of necessities for Stephen Wiltshire when he’s drawing: fine tipped black felt markers and Motown music. He’s usually listening to it through headphones while working on a piece.Wiltshire has earned international fame for his detailed panoramas of cityscapes, which he draws after only a helicopter flyover. He says the process starts by putting a few sketches on paper while he’s in the air, then he draws the rest from memory.Wiltshire was diagnosed with autism when he was three years old, which is also when he started drawing.He recently finished up his latest project over the weekend at the Houston Galleria. It’s a bird’s eye view of Greater Houston, measuring 3 ft. by 14 ft.Amy BishopStephen Wiltshire usually listens to Motown or soul music while he’s working.The weather hampered his initial helicopter ride on the Sunday before the floods began – they weren’t even in the air for 15 minutes before being forced to land. The following day, he went back up for about 30 minutes. By that point, many parts of Greater Houston were experiencing record flooding.Chris Hodson, who works at the London gallery where Wiltshire’s work is shown, says the floods didn’t affect his ability to take in the landscape, with one exception.“The cars that Stephen’s drawn in the pictures, they’re just the cars that he wants to be there because there was nothing on the road,” Hodson explains, adding that even their pilot was taking pictures with his phone, saying he’d never seen the roads that empty.The project, titled “Elevate Houston: The Big Picture” will make its rounds at various venues around town, before going up for sale.Amy BishopStationed by Macy’s and Nordstrom in the Houston Galleria, people stopped to watch Wiltshire as he worked.

The feature is available in preview releases of Vivaldi right now, and can be activated in two different ways.You may right-click on any image displayed in the web browser and select “inspect image” from the context menu, or you may activate the information icon displayed next to the image if it is displayed on its own in the web browser.Vivaldi displays an information icon on the page which you may activate to display metadata information.The Image Inspector interface lists the data in a sidebar like interface. It may include information on the Camera that was used to take the photo, shot specific information such as exposure time, dimensions, size, a histogram, color temperature and white balance data.Only data that is provided as metadata is displayed.

News | Pediatric Imaging | August 14, 2019 Ultrasound Guidance Improves First-attempt Success in IV Access in Children August 14, 2019 – Children’s veins read more June 17, 2008 – A radiation-free ultrasound exam of a women’s heel may predict if a woman is at an increased risk for fractures, according to a new multicenter study published in the July issue of the journal Radiology, finding that radiation-free ultrasound of the heel may be used to better select women who need further bone density testing, such as a dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) exam.In the three-year multicenter study, 6,174 women age 70 to 85 with no previous formal diagnosis of osteoporosis were screened with heel-bone quantitative ultrasound (QUS), a diagnostic test used to assess bone density. QUS was used to calculate the stiffness index, which is an indicator of bone strength, at the heel. Researchers added in risk factors such as age, history of fractures or a recent fall to the results of the heel-bone ultrasound to develop a predictive rule to estimate the risk of fractures. The results showed that 1,464 women (23.7 percent) were considered lower risk and 4,710 (76.3 percent) were considered higher risk.Study participants where mailed questionnaires every six months for up to 32 months to record any changes in medical conditions, including illness, changes in medications or any fracture. If a fracture had occurred, the patients were asked to specify the fracture’s precise location and trauma level and to include a medical report from the physician in charge. In the group of higher risk women, 290 (6.1 percent) developed fractures whereas only 27 (1.8 percent) of the women in the lower risk group developed fractures. Among the 66 women who developed a hip fracture, 60 (90 percent) were in the higher risk group.The results show that heel QUS is not only effective at identifying high-risk patients who should receive further testing, but also may be helpful in identifying patients for whom further testing can be avoided.Osteoporosis is a disease that is characterized by low bone mass and the deterioration of bone tissue and is a major public health threat. According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, 10 million Americans currently have osteoporosis and approximately 34 million more are estimated to have low bone mass, increasing their risk of developing the disease. Eighty percent of those affected are women.For more information: www.rsna.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content News | Ultrasound Imaging | July 26, 2019 Intelligent Ultrasound Group Collaborating With the National Imaging Academy Wales Artificial intelligence (AI)-based ultrasound software and simulation company Intelligent Ultrasound Group plc (AIM:… read more Technology | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | July 02, 2019 Philips Extends Advanced Automation on Epiq CVx Cardiovascular Ultrasound Platform Philips recently announced new advanced automation capabilities on its Epiq CVx and Epiq CVxi cardiac ultrasound… read more The ScanTrainer transvaginal simulator is one example of Intelligent Ultrasound’s simulation technologies. 360 Photos | Ultrasound Imaging | July 11, 2019 360 Degree View of a Smartphone Performing a Cardiac Ultrasound Exam This 360 degree photo shows a basic, point-of-care cardiac echocardiogram being performed using a smartphone turned i read more read more 3D Auto RV application image courtesy of Philips Healthcare News | Ultrasound Women’s Health | July 11, 2019 FDA Clears Koios DS Breast 2.0 AI-based Software Koios Medical announced its second 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Related posts:World Surfing Games in Jacó: 5 things to know about attending World Surfing Games preview: Can Costa Rica win second consecutive title? Noe Mar McGonagle wins bronze, Team Costa Rica finishes fifth at ISA World Surfing Games Team Costa Rica shines on first day of 2016 World Surfing Games An interesting thing happened in Thursday afternoon’s repechage (losers’ bracket) Round 4 at the ISA World Surfing Games, where Costa Rican Tomás King had a controlling lead over the three other surfers in the water. Already having tallied excellent scores of 8.67 and 6.50 on waves, King had first priority on an incoming wave when both he and Frenchman Charly Martin (No. 62 in the World Surf League’s Qualifying Series, QS, rankings) stood up to ride.King rode the wave straight ahead in a defensive gesture and Martin’s positioning brought upon an interference penalty, which eventually eliminated the decorated French rider from competition.King’s brilliant tactic not only secured his first place finish and a spot in the men’s repechage Round 5, but it also eliminated one of the top surfers from a country that came into Jacó as a favorite to earn a team medal.“France is a super strong team and we want to defend our title here at home,” King said to a broadcaster following the dramatic finish. “I had to do what I had to do to take him out and I’m stoked.” Kevin Schulz (No. 183 in QS) of the United States, which is another country that figured to contend with Costa Rica for first place in the team category, was also eliminated during King’s winning heat Thursday.King, the 20-year-old rider from Tamarindo who entered the World Surfing Games as Costa Rica’s biggest unknown, now has a chance to further advance Costa Rica’s chance of repeating a world championship as he faces riders from Japan and Portugal, two other serious title contenders, in Round 5 of the repechage bracket on Friday. Team Costa Rica has been a constant presence supporting its surfers on the shore of Playa Jacó. (Courtesy of ISA)King is one of five riders still left in competition for Costa Rica. The two headliners of the group, Carlos “Cali” Muñoz and defending men’s individual champ Noe Mar McGonagle, remain in the winner’s bracket heading into Round 4 of the men’s main event.Muñoz came in first place for his third consecutive heat on Wednesday, although it wasn’t without some drama. The 23-year-old was again blowing out the rest of the riders in his heat when he was nearly called for an interference that likely would have sent him down into the repechage rounds.Judges decided Muñoz got out of the way of another surfer in time and did not assess the penalty, leaving the Esterillos Oeste native with a score of 15.00.Muñoz enters Friday’s Round 4 heat against Portugal’s Guilherme Fonseca (No. 273 in QS), Japan’s Takumi Nakamura (No. 85 in QS), and Francisco Bellorin of Venezuela (unranked in the World Surf League).The Costa Rican should be considered the favorite in the heat that earns the top two riders with a spot in the quarterfinals. The controlled way in which Muñoz is currently riding is putting him on the fast track for the podium in the men’s individual category.In his quest for a quarterfinal spot, last year’s first place finisher, McGonagle, could have a much more difficult time. Though he’s been surfing well the past few days and has topped riders like Nakamura and Brett Simpson of the U.S., he has a huge challenge in front of him when he goes against Argentina’s Santiago Muñíz (No. 30 in QS), Miguel Tudela (No. 104 in QS) of Peru, and Lucca Mesinas (No. 123 in QS) also of Peru.In the team’s only misstep so far, Costa Rican national champion Anthony Fillingim was eliminated in Wednesday’s repechage. The shocking elimination for Fillingim came one round after the Santa Teresa native was bumped out of the winner’s bracket by a last-second ride from Argentina’s Leandro Usuna (No. 79 in QS) that put Usuna in second place in the heat.On the women’s side Thursday, Emily Gussoni was knocked out of the winner’s bracket and into the repechage on Thursday. Gussoni’s repechage Round 4 matchup will be extremely complicated as it pits the 16-year-old against South Africa’s dynamic surfer Tanika Hoffman (No. 72 in women’s QS) and Australia’s Codie Klein (No. 43 in QS). Noe Mar McGonagle will be back in the water on Friday after a break on Thursday as he remains in the men’s main event bracket. (Courtesy of ISA)In her repechage heat, Leilani McGonagle finished second to remain in the competition and advance to Round 4 of the women’s repechage bracket. There, McGonagle will be matched up against France’s Pauline Ado (No. 14 in QS), the long-time Championship Tour surfer who has tallied two of the top three overall heat results in this year’s World Surfing Games with scores of 17.93 and 17.77.If Costa Rica can fend off elimination again Friday, as it did with its three repechage riders on Thursday, it should be sitting in a great position for its second consecutive overall team title at the World Surfing Games. The major contender to the Ticos’ throne is Portugal, which is the only other country besides Costa Rica with five riders still in the competition.The Portuguese are also the only team with two surfers left in the women’s main event. Other team medalists could be South Africa, Japan, Peru and France – which all have four riders left in the contest heading into Friday.Event organizers are expecting a large turnout of spectators this holiday weekend: up to 500,000 people. Mother’s Day, Aug. 15, is an official holiday here.According to the online surf conditions site SurfLine, a rather decent swell is starting to move in on Jacó that should ramp up the waves a bit. Wave action has been predictably small since the tournament started on Sunday. Facebook Comments
Even though he was not implicated in those investigations, Blatter faced calls for his resignation that came from some of his harshest critics in the game as well as from political leaders.His re-election to a fifth, four-year term Friday was a reflection of the support he enjoyed by giving each of FIFA’s 209 member federations a basic yearly sum of $250,000, plus bonuses and project funds from World Cup profits.FIFA’s revenue was about $560 million in 1998 when Blatter took over and $5.7 billion last year, boosted by huge increases in media and marketing rights sales. FIFA had 137 members in 1970 and 190 when Blatter succeeded Joao Havelange, and 19 have been added — for the most part small nations that lack economic might and soccer pedigree.Blatter used the revenue to build soccer in underdeveloped parts of the world — and boost support for himself. FIFA’s website says the organization has given nearly $11.9 billion in financial assistance, and has helped fund 698 projects under its Goal Programme and 3,844 technical activities.Even when scandals tainted FIFA’s prestige and image, most of the officials stuck by Blatter, particularly from small nations in Africa and Asia. “It’s because I am a fighter,” Blatter would add in a typical touch of light self-aggrandizement.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Don Shooter shows health improvement Since 2010, executive committee members Amos Adamu (Nigeria), Chuck Blazer (United States), Vernon Manilal Fernando (Sri Lanka), Mohammed bin Hammam (Qatar), Reynald Temarii (Tahiti) and Jack Warner (Trinidad and Tobago) were suspended. Nicolas Leoz (Paraguay) and Ricardo Teixeira (Brazil) quit following corruption allegations.Current executive committee member Jeffrey Webb (Cayman Islands) and expiring member Eugenio Figueredo (Uruguay) were suspended last week along with executive committee member-elect Eduardo Li (Costa Rica) after they were indicted in the U.S. on racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering charges along with Warner and Leoz. Blazer pled guilty to 10 counts.Blatter weathered the turbulence. Shortly before his last re-election in 2011, FIFA was rocked when Hammam, his only challenger, and Warner were suspended because of bribery allegations in what was then described as the organization’s worst scandal in its history.“Crisis? What is a crisis? Football is not in a crisis,” Blatter said before he won a one-man election that was derided as a coronation.Blatter devoted more than half his life to working at FIFA, as technical director, chief executive and, since 1998, as president. Top Stories But there also were times that some of Blatter’s remarks made him seem out of touch.Five years ago, Blatter said gay visitors to the 2022 World Cup should “refrain from any sexual activities” while in Qatar because of the Gulf nation’s strict laws against homosexuality. He later apologized.In 2004, Blatter said women should consider playing in “tighter shorts” to bring more attention to the game. He told the Swiss newspaper SonntagsBlick: “In volleyball the women also wear other uniforms than the men. Pretty women are playing football today. Excuse me for saying that.”Blatter, nicknamed Sepp — often used by people named Joseph — was born in Visp and is a 1959 graduate of the University of Lausanne with a degree in business and economics.He was head of public relations for tourism in the canton of Valais (1959-64), secretary general of the Swiss Ice Hockey Federation (1964-66), and worked in several roles for Longines (1968-75) before joining FIFA. He was director of the technical department from 1975-81, then secretary general under Havelange from 1981-98.As president, he relished telling the story that his birth was two months premature and one of his grandmothers said she thought he would not survive. How do cataracts affect your vision?

FIFA President Sepp Blatter said Tuesday June 2, 2015, that he will resign from his position amid corruption scandal. (AP Photo/ L.M. Otero,File) Top ways to honor our heroes on Veterans Day GENEVA (AP) — Sepp Blatter governed the biggest sport on Earth for nearly two decades, for years untouched personally by allegations of corruption, but never sharing the game’s popularity.He joked about his “Dr. Evil” image, like a James Bond villain manipulating soccer from his Swiss headquarters and never responding to public outcry. He surrounded himself with loyal lieutenants, many of whom he raised from obscurity to lead powerful national and regional federations. He put them in control of billions of dollars for TV contracts, endorsements of national teams and where the biggest tournaments were held. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Even over the last few years, as many of those deputies were torched by scandal, he replaced them without making huge changes and took credit for helping clean up the game.After 17 years in charge and bringing the game’s marquee events to new heights, the pressure became too much. The world’s largest soccer nations were in open rebellion and discussing an alternate tournament to the World Cup. Sponsors from the world’s most-popular soft drink to best-selling video game questioned their ties to FIFA.At a hastily arranged announcement Tuesday, Blatter said he plans to resign and admitted he had lost too much support to remain in office.But even on his way out, he didn’t take responsibility for the problems under his watch. He declared he was now free from constraints and could clean up the game the way he has wanted to, seemingly tone deaf to the idea that that might sound insincere.As FIFA thrived through allegations of bribery, vote-buying and World Cup ticket scams, the 79-year-old Blatter built a base of support by bolstering the sport in developing countries and brought the first World Cup to Africa.On May 27, U.S. prosecutors issued indictments against 14 current or former soccer officials — including seven arrested in raids at a luxury Zurich hotel. The Swiss also opened a criminal investigation into the votes awarding the World Cup tournaments to Russia in 2018 and to Qatar in 2022. He learned a lot from Havelange. The imperious Brazilian presided over FIFA for 24 years — the last 17 with Blatter as chief administrator. During that time, sports marketing became as a booming industry that could be bent to the will of federation leaders.Blatter defended his reign during a 2013 speech at the Oxford Union in Britain.“Perhaps you think I am a ruthless parasite sucking the lifeblood out of the world and out of football — the godfather of the FIFA gravy train,” he said.“There are those who will tell you that FIFA is just a conspiracy, a scam, accountable to nobody and too powerful for anyone to resist,” he went on. “There are those who will tell you of the supposed sordid secrets that lie deep in our Bond villain headquarters in the hills above Zurich … where we apparently plot to exploit the unfortunate and the weak. They would have you believe that I sit in my office with a sinister grin, gently stroking the chin of an expensive, white Persian cat.”“It is strange how fantasy easily becomes confused with fact,” he said.Blatter mastered the politics of international soccer and reveled in the media attention. He mixed easily with heads of state lured by the commercial and popular power of the World Cup.

What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Mentioning Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb in the same sentence as former Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner is an unlikely comparison within the state of Arizona these days but Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid managed to give it a shot. According to Mike Sando of ESPN.com,Andy Reid said that Kolb just needs more time, much like Warner did when he first arrived to Arizona in 2005. “Things take time, so you come in and you learn,” Reid told reporters covering the Cardinals. “You had one of the all-time great ones there with Kurt Warner and that was up and down initially, and then he came in and got it all figured out and it was lights out. That’s how those things work.”Time is not on Kolb’s side like it was for Warner. Kolb came to Arizona as a career backup. Warner came to Arizona as a Super Bowl Champion, a Super Bowl MVP and a two-time league MVP who led one of the most prolific offenses in NFL history.
