Waterfront Toronto chairman has doubts about Sidewalk Labs ambitions

The chairman of the agency that is overseeing redevelopment of Toronto’s eastern waterfront says Sidewalk Labs’ masterplan for the area goes well beyond the scope of the original request for proposals and in some cases requires guarantees that fall outside his agency’s mandate.In an interview with the Financial Post on Tuesday, Stephen Diamond, a veteran Toronto real estate developer and chairman of Waterfront Toronto, expressed doubts about a number of aspects of the project, including Sidewalk Labs’ insistence that they need a guarantee that light-rail transit will be built through the new district.“What does one do after going through a public negotiation, and (assuming) other deals, other issues are resolved, how do you enter into an appropriate arrangement with a private company that is conditional on something beyond your control?” he said. Did Sidewalk Labs overstep with their masterplan? It certainly raised concerns at Waterfront Toronto Five potential sticking points in Sidewalk Labs’ masterplan for the Toronto waterfront Sidewalk Labs’ decision to offload tough decisions on privacy to third party is wrong, says its former consultant Diamond noted that Sidewalk’s long-awaited development plan, released Monday, was more ambitious in scope and contained significant departures from earlier plans.Sidewalk is a sister-company to Google, both owned by Alphabet Inc., and when the company responded to a Waterfront Toronto request for proposals, they were primarily being asked for a development plan for Quayside, a 12-acre plot of land on the waterfront.As part of their winning pitch, Diamond said they promised to move Google’s Canadian headquarters to Quayside, which would create jobs and economic activity in the new neighbourhood from the beginning. The new location for the Google headquarters would be on port lands which will only be open to development because of a $1.2 billion government project to re-route the Don River to prevent flooding, and Sidewalk Labs is now talking about developing the whole area as part of a broader IDEA district.Sidewalk CEO Dan Doctoroff said in an interview that in order to meet revitalization, environmental and affordable housing objectives set by Waterfront Toronto, they needed the greater scale of the port lands for their plan.Diamond flatly disagreed.“We do not believe that they have presented strong arguments that that scale is needed,” he said.“Certainly, there was an indication from the beginning, that it was something that they wanted, but it was also something that was clearly indicated in the agreements, that it wasn’t something we were obligated to accept.”An early suggestion of what the proposed Sidewalk Labs project might entail along the city’s waterfront. Diamond was also hesitant about Sidewalk’s request for government to create a new public entity, or vest Waterfront Toronto with additional powers, to shepherd the whole development through regulatory processes over the next decade or more.“How would that realistically get administered? And is it plausible and is it realistic that it could even occur, when there is no regulatory framework in place for it?” he asked.Waterfront Toronto will hold a public consultation meeting in July to canvas public input on the 1,524-page Sidewalk Labs draft plan, and then after negotiation and revision, Waterfront Toronto’s board will vote on whether to proceed with the project.Already, strong reactions to the project are surfacing from the organizations and people who have been keeping a close eye on the long plan-development process that has been underway since October of 2017.We do not believe that they have presented strong arguments that that scale is neededWaterfront Toronto chair Stephen Diamond Sidewalk Labs “They’ve now come along and said no, we’re no longer going to put the headquarters on Quayside, but we’re going to put it on a different piece of land that we want,” Diamond said.“And by the way, (they) don’t want to have to go through a procurement for that particular piece of land, because (they) want to build the Google headquarters there.”They’ve now come along and said no, we’re no longer going to put the headquarters on Quayside, but we’re going to put it on a different piece of land that we wantWaterfront Toronto chair Stephen Diamond Brian Kelcey, vice-president of public affairs for the Toronto Regional Board of Trade, welcomed the plan because it gives the public something meaty to discuss.The Board of Trade has been broadly supportive of the Sidewalk Labs development for a while, but Kelcey said the public debate around the project has often suffered from a lack of information before the plan was released.“Frankly, it was a lot of shadow boxing and talk about worst-case scenarios,” he said.Sunil Sharma, director of Techstars Toronto, said he believes the Sidewalk development would be a testbed for urban innovation, and that it would mean Toronto will become a magnet for those sorts of startups.“I believe that with Sidewalk many of those companies are going to look at moving to Toronto, at least for a while, and they may stay here,” he said.“The net benefit will be landing a whole lot of global tech companies.”But for Bianca Wylie, a senior fellow at the Centre for International Governance Innovation, and one of the project’s persistent critics, the expansive scope of the plan was part of the problem.Wylie said by going beyond their original remit, Sidewalk Labs is trying to do an end-run around the process set up by Waterfront Toronto to handle these issues.She attributed that approach to Sidewalk Labs’ DNA as a sister company to Google.“There is a lawlessness to the style, and to the power moves that the tech industry does. They just kind of do stuff and then they say, ‘Oh, regulate us!’” she said.“You see that happening here on a micro level with this project. They’ve gone way over what they were asked for.”• Email: | Twitter: read more

Dont call them a Cinderella Ohio State to face No 9 seed

LOS ANGELES – Don’t tell Ohio State its opponent in the Elite 8 is a No. 9 seed, the lowest seed to reach the NCAA Tournament’s quarterfinal round since Virginia Commonwealth University did it two years ago as a No. 11. Don’t tell the No. 2-seeded Buckeyes the Shockers of Wichita State are a mid-major, with a roster full of lowly heralded recruits, none of which likely have a future in the NBA. And don’t tell OSU a second-consecutive berth in the Final Four is all but assured, or that its 11-game winning streak will most definitely reach 12. The Buckeyes, following a 73-70 win against No. 6 seed Arizona Thursday, and Wichita State, after a 72-58 defeat of No. 13 La Salle, will meet at the Staples Center in Los Angeles Saturday at 7:05 p.m. Thad Matta’s squad is the clear favorite heading into its bash against Gregg Marshall’s start-ups with a spot in Atlanta on the line. But OSU’s players aren’t thinking like that. “I think we’re not going to overlook anybody at this point. The fact that they’re in the Elite 8 just means that they’re a really great team,” said sophomore guard Shannon Scott. “Even though they don’t come from a great conference, or what their seed is in the tournament, they’re a great team.” The Shockers knocked off No. 8 seed Pittsburgh in their opening bout before upending No. 1 seed Gonzaga, 76-70, in the tournament’s third round. At this point, Wichita State likely isn’t going to sneak up on anybody, certainly not the Buckeyes. “They definitely, like I said, deserve to be here. They’ve played really good basketball, outplayed everyone they’ve played so far,” said junior guard Aaron Craft. Don’t call Wichita State a “Cinderella,” either. The Shockers have won 25, 29, 27 and now 29 games over the last four seasons. “They’re a great team. They have a lot of talent,” said sophomore forward Sam Thompson. “They’re playing their best basketball of the season just like we’re playing our best basketball of the season.” The players that make up Wichita State’s roster might not have been McDonald’s All-Americans or top-100 players coming into college, but to Matta, high recruiting rankings don’t always translate into success on the hardwood. “I’ve had the privilege of coaching two national players of the year, and neither one of them were top 75 high school players out of high school,” Matta said, speaking of former Xavier star David West and former Buckeye All-American Evan Turner. There’s parity in college basketball right now, according to Matta, meaning the so-called “mid-majors” can at times be just as talented as the apparent “elites.” “As I go out recruiting every year, I can’t tell the difference between the 20th player and the 120th player in the country,” Matta said. “That doesn’t mean a whole lot to me in terms of your ranking of the recruiting class and all that stuff.” On the court, the Shockers like to get out and run, and play a style not consistently seen by OSU in Big Ten play. “They’re extremely deep,” Matta said. “They’ve got guys that can do a lot of things from shooting the ball to driving the ball. They’re sound in terms of-very sound in terms of their execution.” Wichita State (29-8) is led by two 6-foot-8 forwards, Cleanthony Early, a junior averaging 13.7 points and 5.3 rebounds a game, and Carl Hall, a senior averaging 12.7 points and seven rebounds a contest. Senior guard Malcolm Armstead, though, has been his team’s go-to player so far in the tournament, dropping 48 points through three games. OSU (29-7) got off to a slow start in its Sweet 16 game against Arizona, falling into a double-digit deficit midway through the opening half. Getting out to a quick start against the Shockers could be paramount for the Buckeyes. “We really have to come ready to play from the jump. I feel like yesterday we came out kind of slow, timid, but then after coach talked to us a bit, we really got going,” Scott said. The end of games, however, is where OSU has made its mark in the tournament. A 3-pointer by Craft with 0.5 seconds left against Iowa State sent the Buckeyes into the Sweet 16 and a 3-pointer from Ross against Arizona with two seconds left catapulted OSU into the Elite 8. It’s surprised some that it wasn’t junior forward Deshaun Thomas, the Big Ten’s leading scorer, hitting those buzzer beaters. OSU’s players haven’t been shocked by it, though. “We have a lot of confidence in a lot of guys on the team,” Craft said. “I have confidence in a lot of guys to take that shot. So last week it happened to be me, yesterday it happened to be LaQuinton, it could be someone else tomorrow.” It’s still Thomas out of all the Buckeyes that concerns Marshall the most. “He’s a bad-shot taker and a bad-shot maker,” Marshall said, noting that the statement was a compliment. And it was Thomas, in opposition from his teammates and coaches, who was the one pointing out what no one Friday seemed to: that OSU is the favorite, and Wichita State the heavy underdog. “They’ve got nothing to lose,” the junior forward said. And if OSU is everyone’s pick to advance, is there a pressure to not be the one that lets the low seed continue to dance? “I don’t think that’s really important to us,” Ross said. “We don’t want to get knocked off by anybody-Syracuse, Louisville, Indiana, Michigan, any of those teams-so we’re taking Wichita State like it’s a Big Ten game or any other game.” If that’s the case, OSU should fare well tomorrow. The Buckeyes haven’t lost “any” game since Feb. 17 and hold the nation’s longest current winning streak. A win against the Shockers would put OSU in its third Final Four since 2007. read more

Ademar Leon to lower budget by 23

← Previous Story Danimir Curkovic to Spanish Amaya Sport Next Story → Wisla Plock to host Orlen Handball Cup Ademar Leon, one of the most respectable Spanish teams, has decided to lower the budget for the next season by about 23%, which is now 2,2 millions. The President of the team, Carlos Pollan, announced that despite this reduction, the team also aims at lowering the costs by about 30%, which was the initial projection. This is backed by the fact that there are some players will conclude their contract, and these include the Slovakian Martin Stranvosky, the goalkeepers Vicente Poplar and Venio Losert, Dalibor Cutura, and the Russian Denis Krivoshlykov who renewed his contract for 1 year, with an option for a second.The club might also find itself in possible economic problems, if the insurance company Reale – the main sponsor of the club, decides not to continue the collaboration, which is to last, for now, until February 2012. read more

Découvrez en images le sauvetage dun ours coincé à près de 5

first_imgDécouvrez en images le sauvetage d’un ours coincé à près de 5 mètres de hauteur dans un arbreLos Angeles, États-Unis – Mercredi dernier, les autorités et les pompiers ont accompli une mission dont ils se souviendront : le sauvetage d’un jeune ours, perché dans un arbre à près de 5 mètres de hauteur. Un ours noir d’environ deux ans pesant une cinquantaine de kilos s’est retrouvé coincé dans un arbre à plus de 4 mètres de hauteur, ne pouvant ni descendre ni se nourrir. D’après les autorités, l’animal séparé de sa mère depuis peu aurait cherché de la nourriture, s’égarant hors de son territoire.Le plantigrade a dû être sédaté lors de l’opération, afin d’éviter tout incident. Puis, grâce à un épais matelas placé au pied de l’arbre, sa chute a pu être amortie et l’animal a regagné le sol sans une égratignure, avant d’être remis en liberté dans le milieu naturel. Actuellement, on compte 38.000 ours en Californie, contre 10.000 en 1980. Ce genre de situation n’a aujourd’hui rien d’inhabituel, mais Porter Ranch n’est pas directement à proximité des zones d’habitation des ours, d’où un certain étonnement de la population devant cette scène.Découvrir les images : 29 mai 2010 à 13:43 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Landing seeks clarification on Manila IR land lease cancellation

first_img RelatedPosts Landing International rejects links to company found using IP to promote cryptocurrency Load More Duterte “regretted” running for President after Landing International’s 2018 Manila land lease scandal Mohegan appoints former Landing International executive Christian Block to oversee Korea, Canada operations Asian integrated resort developer and operator Landing International Development Ltd says it is “waiting for further clarification” on the future of its planned Manila integrated resort after the office of the Philippines President revealed over the weekend that the Department of Justice had ruled the company’s local land deal void.Harry Roque, the spokesman for the President, told local reporters on Friday that Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra had deemed Landing’s contract to lease a 95,700-square meter plot of land in Manila’s Entertainment City from Nayong Pilipino Foundation as invalid. “It characterized the contract as being ‘void ab initio’,” Roque said. “According to the Secretary of Justice, the contract of Landing with Nayong Pilipino is a build-operate-transfer contract disguised as a lease contract. Because it is a build-operate-transfer project, it should have complied with the BOT law including public bidding.”Approached by Inside Asian Gaming, a Landing International spokesperson said that the company had no comment at this stage while it sought further clarification on the issue.It follows President Rodrigo Duterte’s decision to fire the entire board of Nayong Pilipino Foundation in early August, announcing their fate on the very same day that Landing held its groundbreaking ceremony for the US$1.5 billion project.Landing said at the time that it believed its 50-year lease deal to be “still valid and effective” and that it planned to push ahead with the project.“From the group’s view point, the recent decision of the Philippine Government to replace members of the NPF board of trustees did not affect the validity of the subject contract of lease,” the company added.Nayong Pilipino Foundation is accused of failing to open the land parcel up for public bidding and of granting Landing International a deal that was “grossly disadvantageous” to the government. The sacked Chairman of Nayong Pilipino Foundation, Patricia Ocampo, has denied there was any legal requirement for public bidding while insisting the lease rate was in line or higher than other land parcels in the Entertainment City precinct.Ocampo has been in the spotlight ever since the 7 August groundbreaking ceremony where she gave a welcome speech to guests despite having just been told of her fate, then broke down in tears moments later.last_img read more

Will Gas Prices Accelerate Death of Print

first_imgPrint industry executives have been ratcheting up the reverb on “print is dead” rhetoric for years now. And there have been plenty of reasons to worry. But spiraling gas prices wasn’t one of them. That is, until now.Check out the “Perfect Storm” scenario laid out via Steve “Micro Persuasion” Rubel’s blog:For starters, as gas prices go up, so will the distribution costs. This could have a significant impact on margins. … Second, there’s a greater awareness among consumers of their environmental impact. At the Forbes Online Brand Summit earlier this year, Jeff Cole from USC Annenberg predicted that as this broadens, consumers will cut back on print in favor of digital media. I think he’s right. … Last but not least we have the growing popularity of speedy 3G-enabled smart phones, including the new iPhone 3G. The devices are declining in price while offering a lot more sophisticated experience for reading news.That third part I’m not so sure about (I consume more media than most, and I am not a huge fan of the smart phone browsing experience) but there’s truth in the first two. The analogous question publishers should be asking themselves—or, at least, be prepared to ask—is this: Are they George Clooney?

DC Board Recommends StandAlone Modernized Martin Luther King Jr Memorial Library

first_imgThe D.C. Public Library Board of Trustees recently adopted a resolution unanimously supporting a modernization design for the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library that would allow the library to remain a stand-alone building with a fifth-floor addition.With the city facing a virtual land grab that has pitted residents and developers at odds over the use of space, many proposals for library and housing renovations have sought to incorporate mixed-use structures. Under such proposals, stores and libraries would take up two to three floors in buildings that also provide condominiums, offices, or retail space.The board recommended the fifth-floor addition approach instead of a three-story, mixed-use addition after considering the requirements for a modern library, factoring in community feedback and reviewing the cost-benefit analysis of adding three new floors.While the options to include a café or space for non-profit or government partners remains, the Board’s goal is to also incorporate as many of the wishes and visions of residents as possible.“After months of listening and learning, the Board had several goals,” said Gregory M. McCarthy, president of the Board of Trustees. “First and foremost, it was essential to make possible additional space for programming in a spectacular central library. We also wanted to create a hub for educational, cultural and civic expression for the whole city and we wanted to contribute to the social and economic activation around MLK in downtown. The concept we’re advancing does all of that.”Initial planning for the modernized Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library in 2012 assumed that a new library would need only 250,000 square feet. In December, the Library revised its program to incorporate new library uses and to include ideas from more than 3,000 District residents. The new program will require the entire 400,000-square foot building plus the fifth-floor addition, and will include classrooms, studio space, learning spaces for children and teens, and a D.C. History Center.last_img read more

Warren Tackles Race Following Criticism of DNA Test Release

first_imgBy Elana Schor and Juana Summers, The Associated PressSen. Elizabeth Warren sought to solidify her connection with African-American voters Dec. 14 as she prepares to launch a potential presidential campaign amid criticism of her approach to race and identity.The Massachusetts Democrat visited Morgan State University in Baltimore, marking her third trip this year to a historically Black college or university. It follows her widely panned October release of a DNA test meant to bolster her claim to Native American heritage. Her speech Friday offered an opportunity to regain her footing.Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., answers a question from the audience at the American University Washington College of Law in Washington, Thursday, Nov. 29, 2018, after delivering a speech on her foreign policy vision for the country. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)“I’m not a person of color,” Warren said. “And I haven’t lived your life or experienced anything like the subtle prejudice, or more overt harm, that you may have experienced just because of the color of your skin. Rules matter, and our government — not just individuals within the government, but the government itself — has systematically discriminated against Black people in this country.”Some Democrats said Warren’s speech was a good effort to move past the DNA analysis, which sparked controversy for her use of a genetic test to prove her ethnicity. The findings showed Warren’s Native American ancestor likely lived 6 to 10 generations ago, but that it would be impossible to determine the ancestor’s tribal connection.President Donald Trump has taunted Warren for discussing her heritage, dubbing her “Pocahontas,” which has been criticized as racist.Warren could face additional pressure from Democrats to address race. Bakari Sellers, an attorney, Democratic political analyst and former South Carolina Democratic state representative, urged Warren to more publicly say that “you were wrong in the way that you interpret and address race.”“Having that moment of ignorance — we all do, but we need to address the fact that we were wrong,” he said. “I love the fact that she’s making attempts to make inroads with the African-American community, but her path is very narrow.”Mo Elleithee, a veteran Democratic strategist and founding executive director of Georgetown University’s Institute of Politics and Public Service, described Warren’s outreach to African-American and other minority groups as even more vital to her potential campaign in light of the DNA test’s poor reception.“I think it has sort of knocked her off balance a little bit when it comes to issues of identity and minority outreach, broadly,” Elleithee said, adding that “the stakes are a little bit higher when you are one of the more recognized candidates at this early part of the process.”Warren’s work to spotlight racial as well as economic inequities is significantly more advanced than her fellow New England liberal icon, Sen. Bernie Sanders. The Vermont Independent is weighing his own 2020 Democratic campaign after struggling to break through with minority voters during his 2016 run.The theme that Warren struck Friday — that minorities don’t get a level playing field in America — is one she’s long tackled. She drew acclaim from Black Lives Matter activists for a 2015 speech that acknowledged “we have not made enough progress” toward creating fairness and opportunity for African-Americans. She slammed the nation’s criminal justice system as “racist” in August during a Q&A with Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Cedric Richmond, with whom she partnered again this week on affordable housing legislation backed by civil rights groups.Democratic strategist Symone Sanders said Warren “does a good job of authentically and honestly speaking not just to communities of color” but also “incorporating race into policy prescriptions.”Sanders, a former campaign aide to the Vermont senator who is not currently working with any 2020 hopeful, said Warren’s “trip at the finish line” on her DNA analysis isn’t “indicative of Elizabeth’s Warren’s understanding of communities of color, or of the type of presidential campaign she would run.”In remarks last month to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, Warren reiterated her critique of a justice system that research has shown gives Black offenders stiffer punishment.Warren has “proven that she has the skills to relate to an audience that is of color,” Sharpton told The Associated Press. “Her image before was a New Englander, academia-type policy wonk. And she’s been able to, in her delivery, show some real passion toward things of concern like health care, criminal justice and the kinds of things that you don’t expect a New England professorial type to show passion and connection.”Asked if Warren’s ancestry was a fight that he would have advised her to pursue, Sharpton said: “I might have fought it differently, but I would have fought it.”Richmond described “the passion and the commitment” that Warren displayed in remarks to their members that led to “a natural relationship” working on issues. Four CBC members introduced the House counterpart to Warren’s housing legislation on Tuesday.Richmond also took no issue with Warren’s presentation of the story of her past: “People are always going to look for the negative in no matter what you do. And I just think that she’s very authentic, very open, and sometimes that’s going to open you up for some criticism on how you did it, why you did it.”DeJuana Thompson, a former DNC and Obama administration staffer and the founder of WokeVote, recalled that Warren was among the first people that she heard from following the work that her group did in Alabama to help turn out black voters in support of Democratic Sen. Doug Jones.“She contacted us literally the day after we won and said, ‘I’m so proud, this is the kind of work that we need to be doing across the country,” said Thompson, who is not currently supporting any of the prospective candidates. “It felt genuine, it felt authentic, and it felt like she had been following and watching our work, and I had no idea.”last_img read more

Freddie Mercury gets his own asteroid for 70th birthday

first_imgCelebrated Queen front man Freddie Mercury would have turned 70 years old on September 5th. In celebration of Mercury’s life and influence on the world, the International Astronomical Union and the Minor Planet Center have come up with a fitting birthday present. Asteroid 17473 will henceforth be officially known as Asteroid 17473 Freddiemercury.Mercury’s friend and bandmate Brian May made the announcement in a YouTube video posted on the band’s YouTube channel. May actually finished his PhD in astrophysics in 2007, more than 33 years after he abandoned his doctoral studies at Imperial College London to be a rockstar. Consequently, he’s able to relate some neat scientific information about Asteroid 17473 Freddiemercury.According to May, Freddie’s asteroid is about 3.5 kilometers (2.2 miles) in diameter. The asteroid is in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, so you can’t get a very good look at it from Earth. The albedo of Asteroid 17473 Freddiemercury is only 0.3, meaning it reflects about a third of the light that strikes it. From Earth, it shines at the 14th magnitude; thus, it’s dim and you need a powerful telescope to see it. You can see some footage of the asteroid at the end of the announcement video.Freddie Mercury passed away in 1991 from complications related to AIDS. Even after all the intervening years, Mercury’s musical influence lives on. And now, there’s a celestial body named after him. “It’s just a dot of light,” May says in the video, “but it’s a very special dot of light.”last_img read more

Medical aspirant with hearing impairment denied disability quota seat moves HC

first_imgKolkata: A medical aspirant from the state with a hearing impairment moved the Calcutta High Court after he was denied quota seat under Person with Disability (PwD) category on the basis of a report submitted by the SSKM Hospital which the petitioner found ‘faulty’ as there was no appropriate assistive device in the hospital to measure the level of his impairment.The petitioner, Maheboob Laskar, a resident of Mograhat in South 24-Parganas cleared the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) and now seeking an admission under PwD category as he has some problem in hearing. Laskar in his Writ petition at the Calcutta High Court alleged that SSKM Hospital has flouted the Medical Council of India (MCI) guideline where it said that all the candidates with hearing impairment must be examined with assistive device at the hospitals. But it was not done at the SSKM Hospital due to the unavailability of the device. As a result the examination in case of Laskar had not been conducted as per the MCI norms. The candidate eventually failed to achieve more than 40 per cent disability during his examination at the hospital which was one of the prerequisites to secure an admission in the undergraduate medical courses in the state. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataMany candidates from the state who are seeking admission in a medical college under the same category have expressed their concern on how they would be examined when there is no device available at the SSKM Hospital to properly determine the level of their impairment. In the writ petition, Laskar mentioned that the MCI Gazette notification dated February 5, 2019 says that “Persons with hearing disability of more than 40 per cent may be made eligible to pursue Graduate Medical Education and may be given reservation, subject to the condition that hearing disability is brought to a level of less than the benchmark of 40 per cent with the aid of assistive devices”.

The candidate has qualified the NEET obtaining total 113 marks out of 720 (around 42.49 percentile) with OBC category PH ranking of 2130 and all India ranking of 808060. The candidate claimed that he would have obtained more than 40 per cent disability criteria, had he been examined by the proper device.last_img read more

But there are times when speed is of the essence, when interaction between radiologist and referring physician is critically important for the patient. At those times, says David Naeger, associate professor of clinical radiology at the University of California San Francisco, nothing is better than talking — and hospital-based cell phones can make that happen.Research by Naeger and colleagues, published in 2014, documented that cell phone conversations with radiologists can help neurologists form differential diagnoses. In the research, radiologists and referring physicians reported increased satisfaction after these conversations and neurologists seemed especially pleased, according to Naeger. Demonstrating the utility of cell phone interaction was the frequency of conversations between neurologists and radiology residents, he said, three and six such discussions per night.The idea of talking through a problem is hardly new. Neither is the idea of using cell phones for this purpose.In a white paper distributed by the Swedish IT firm Sectra, the use of cell phones came up in research involving 78 referring physicians and 78 radiologists, all working in the United States. While all acknowledged the importance of formal reports, a consensus arose that the efficiency and value of the information could be improved by increasing communication between radiologists and referring physicians and “making it easier to get in touch with each other.” They suggested including the referring physician’s cell phone on the exam order and having a cell phone link to the referring clinician in PACS.Erik M. Olson, M.D., of Radiology Associates, which operates three outpatient medical imaging centers in California, noted in a March 2015 newsletter article that referring physicians often want to discuss exams or have the radiologist pay attention to specific clinical detail. “Unfortunately, contacting a radiologist can be a time-consuming endeavor for a busy referring physician,” Olson wrote.Calls to the front office and even to reading rooms can go unanswered. “The ideal way for a referring doctor to communicate with the radiologist is through the radiologist’s cell phone, equipped with capabilities for voicemail, text message and e-mail,” he wrote, adding the caveat that any texts must be HIPAA-compliant, referring to medical record numbers or patient initials rather than the patient’s full name.In this respect, the cell phone puts a modern twist on “old school” communications, which used to happen when referring physicians would “drop in” on the reading room. But, if technology is going to be thrust into the breach between radiologists and referring physicians, why not use the most advanced capabilities of that technology?An Australian neurosurgeon reported in 2012 the use of a video application on a smartphone to transmit an “entire series of patient neuroimaging” to consultant neurosurgeons. “With this information, combined with a clinical history, accurate management decisions were made,” wrote Ganeshwaran Shivapathasundram, M.D.Whether it’s high-tech, low-tech or no-tech doesn’t matter. The trick is improving communications. The ultimate goal is to make it so the patient receives the best healthcare possible.Editor’s note: This is the second blog in a four-part series on smartphones and radiology.

Facebook Twitter open up at Senate Intelligence hearing committee does homework this

first_imgFive months after Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg appeared before Congress, the US government once again invited top tech executives from Facebook, Twitter, and Google to the fourth and final installment of the series of high profile hearings on social media’s role in US democratic proceedings. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey faced the Senate Select Intelligence Committee, for the purpose to discuss the National Security issues and foreign interference through social media platforms in US elections. Google was notably absent from the proceedings, after the firm failed to send a senior executive ‘at the right level’ to Washington. Google submitted a written testimony ahead of the hearing, which the Senate discarded. In place of a Google representative, the Senate committee left an empty chair. Opening Remarks from the Senate Chairman Richard Burr and the Vice Chairman Mark Warner Chairman of the Senate Richard Burr made his opening remarks welcoming Jack Dorsey CEO Twitter and Sheryl Sandberg COO Facebook. He started with some words from the recently passed John McCain. McCain’s place at the hearing was marked with a single white rose on a black cloth. “He will be dearly missed,” Chairman Burr says. He opened his speech discussing about social media in the last 18 months. He acknowledged its immense potential for good but highlighted how the recent past has show how vulnerable social media can be to corruption and misuse. He said the committee takes this issue very seriously and appreciates the fact that Facebook and Twitter have taken responsibility with an equivalent and appropriate measures of seriousness and unlike their peer Google, have shown up for the hearing with the ‘appropriate level of corporate representation’. He further added that the purpose of this hearing was to discuss the role social media plays into the execution of foreign influence operations. The Chairman precisely made a point that its important we be candid with our language because that is what the significance of this threat demands. He said, “We need to be precise about the foreign actors we talking about. We need to be precise about the consequences of not acting and we need to be candid about being responsible for solving this problem and where it lies.” Chairman Burr’s said that “business as usual” for these tech firms is not good enough. “We’ve identified the problem, now we’ve got to find a solution,” he added. He also adds a jibe at Google for failing to send the “right senior executive”. His sentiments were echoed by Vice Chairman Mark Warner, who took over from Burr. He was “deeply disappointed” in Google for not taking the issues being discussed yesterday seriously enough. Vice Chairman Mark, also put forward some thoughts and open questions to Twitter and Facebook to improve their policies and systems: Users should have the right to know when they are interacting with bots or humans on the platform Isn’t there a public interest in ensuring there is more anonymised data to help researchers and academics identify potential problems and misuse. Why are your terms of service so difficult to find and nearly impossible to read and understand Ideas like data portability, data immunization or first party consent should be adopted After encountering numerous situations of misuse, what kind of accountability should be implemented to the flawed advertising model Sheryls Sandberg’s defending comments The Facebook CEO Sheryl Sandberg smoothly projected the impression that the company is always doing something. Whether that’s on combating hate speech, hoaxes and “inauthentic” content, or IDing and blocking state-level disinformation campaigns — thereby shifting attention off the deeper question of whether Facebook is doing enough. Many of her answers courteously informed senators that Facebook would ‘follow up’ with answers and/or by providing some hazily non-specific ‘collaborative work’ at some undated future time — which is the most professional way to kick awkward questions. Sheryl started her opening remarks by thanking the committee for giving her the opportunity to talk in the Senate Hearing. Referring to her written testimony which goes into more detail and here few points Sandberg reiterated in the session. Russia used our platform to interfere in the US elections and Facebook was too slow to spot this and too slow to act and that is on us, she said She mentioned about taking collaborative efforts with government and law enforcement committees. She further stated that at Facebook they are investing in long term security, and have doubled the number of people working in safety and security. They are able to view security reports in 50 languages 24 hours a day. They use better ML and AI techniques to be more proactive in finding abuse. Their first line of defense is finding and taking down the fake accounts and pages. Blocking millions of attempts to make fake accounts. Making progress on fake news and limiting their distribution as well. They demark articles by third party fact checkers and warn people who give them or about to share them. They show them related articles with more facts for a more well rounded opinion. Strong steps taken to prevent abuse and increase transparency on their advertising platform. For political issue you can now see who paid for the ads, how much they paid and the demographics of the advertisers. Advertisers are also required to go through a long authorization process to confirm their authentic identity. Finally Sandberg concluded by saying these steps wont stop people who are trying to game the system but it will make it a lot harder. She emphasized on working more collaboratively with the government and law enforcement agencies. She continued that Facebook is more determined than its opponent and they are in a grey area working together to meet this challenge. Jack dorsey’s defence “We weren’t expecting any of this when we created Twitter over 12 years ago. We acknowledge the real-world negative consequences of what happened, and we take full responsibility to fix it.” Here’s the opening to Jack Dorsey’s prepared statement: “Thank you for the opportunity to appear before the Committee today so I may speak to you and the American people. Twitter’s purpose is to serve the public conversation. We are an American company that serves our global audience by focusing on the people who use our service, and we put them first in every step we take. Twitter is used as a global town square, where people from around the world come together in an open and free exchange of ideas. We must be a trusted and healthy place that supports free and open discussion. Twitter has publicly committed to improving the collective health, openness, and civility of public conversation on our platform. Twitter’s health is measured by how we help encourage more healthy debate, conversations, and critical thinking. Conversely, abuse, malicious automation, and manipulation detracts from the health of our platform. We are committed to hold ourselves publicly accountable towards progress of our health initiative. Today, I hope my testimony before the Committee will demonstrate the challenges that we are tackling as a global platform. Twitter is approaching these challenges with a simple question: How do we earn more trust from the people using our service? We know the way we earn more trust around is how we make decisions on our platform to be as transparent as possible. We want to communicate how our platform works in a clear and straightforward way.” Jack mentions, “Abuse, harassment, troll armies, propaganda through bots and human coordination, misinformation campaigns, and divisive filter bubbles…that‘s not a healthy public square. Worse, a relatively small number of bad-faith actors were able to game Twitter to have an outsized impact. We weren’t expecting any of this when we created Twitter over 12 years ago. We acknowledge the real-world negative consequences of what happened, and we take full responsibility to fix it. We’ve seen positive results from our work. We‘re now removing over 200% more accounts for violating our policies. We’re identifying and challenging 8-10 million suspicious accounts every week. And we’re thwarting over a half million accounts from logging in to Twitter every day. Today we‘re committing to the people, and this committee, to do that work, and do it openly. We‘re here to contribute to a healthy public square, not compete to have the only one.” Few Questions to the witnesses from the Senators in the committee Senator James E. Risch Questions on Hate Speech “Who sets the security standards or the descriptions of authority of manipulative content and if there is any kind of unanimity amongst them or are there any debates or hate speeches in the team” Sandberg said that language that leads to violence is not permitted on their platform and Twitter CEO Dorsey shares the same views. Risch asked whether there was any way for Facebook to find any distinction between US citizens and people from other countries. Sandberg responded saying Facebook asks people to declare where they are from. People are allowed to talk about any country, but are not allowed to talk about hate. They are not allowed to interfere or influence elections. Facebook is also looking to dive further into transparency reporting. Twitter is focusing on behavioural patterns. It tracks common patterns of behaviour and utilizes that information to find out the unauthentic content. They have built deep learning and machine learning technologies to recognize these patterns quickly and shut them before they spread in other areas. Senator Martin Heinrich on Threat to Elections “What is it that you have learned from the past elections since 2016 as the platforms have been used throughout the course of a number of elections around the world. And how you have informed your current posture in terms of how you are gaining transparency in this activity?” Sandberg said that Facebook is getting smarter at detecting and preventing threats to elections but warned that the opponents are getting smarter as well. Dorsey followed by mentioning how Twitter is working with AI tools to recognise patterns of behaviour that allow people to artificially amplify information. Senator Susan Collins on why Twitter doesn’t intimate individuals “Once you’ve taken down accounts that are linked to Russia, these imposter accounts, what do you do to notify the followers of those accounts that they have been following or engaged in accounts that originated in Russia and are not what they appear to be.” “We simply haven’t done enough… we do believe transparency is a big part of where we need improvement… We need to meet people where they are… We are going to do our best to make sure that we catch everything via external partnership and other channels. We recognise we need to communicate more directly,” said Jack Dorsey. He also added, “We are looking to incentivise people not only based on the number of followers they have but also the way they share content online. By what kind of content they share. We are also looking to expand our transparency report and extend the same to the public.” How Can Facebook & Twitter Clean Their Systems? “We have been investing heavily in identifying bad actors in the system. Most of our takedown have been on our own, but we have coordinated with external parties to make this successful.” said Sandberg. Dorsey had his own response saying, “There are a number of short term risks involved but the only way we’ll grow is by building the platform’s health and we have strengthened our partnership with government agencies and law enforcement partners.” The stock prices of Twitter and Facebook don’t seem to be holding up to the questioning and have been dropping since the hearing began. Sandberg added, “the most important determinant is what people choose to follow. If you don’t want to follow someone we encourage that. We are going to do a contribution to investing in technology to figure out a solution to battle deep fake news.” “I encourage both of you to work closely with academia… I hope that you will commit to providing data that goes beyond a 3 year window to researchers who are looking into Russian influence on your platforms”, concluded Senator Collins Senator Harris on business incentive alignment and policy inconsistencies at Facebook “What metric are you using to calculate the revenue generated associated with those [inorganic] ads? And what is the dollar amount that is associated with that revenue?… What percentage of content on Facebook is inorganic?.. You must know.” Sandberg answered, “Ads don’t run with inorganic content on our service. So there is no way to firmly ascertain how much ads are attached to how much organic content and that’s not how we work.” Harris further asked “How can you reconcile an incentive to create and increase your user engagement when the content that generates a lot of engagement is often inflammatory in nature?” Sandberg gave a specific example of Facebook’s hate speech moderation failure, a financially incentivized policy and moral failure. She referenced a ProPublica report from June 2017, which revealed the company had told moderators to delete hate speech targeting white men but not black children as they were a protected class. She continued that it was a bad policy and they had fixed it. Harris questioned whether the policy was changed after the report? To which Sandberg uncomfortably responded about getting back to the committee on the specifics of when and what would have happened. Senator Blunt on liability implications and learning from attempts at improving the platforms this year “In the interest of transparency and public education…, are you willing to archive suspended accounts…?” Dorsey opened by saying, “As we think about our singular priority of improving the health of public conversations, we are not going to be able to do long term work unless we’re look at the incentives that our product is asking people to do everyday.” Dorsey agreed that archiving historical data is a great idea, but further understanding of the legal implications of such an action is needed. “The business implications, the liability implications of what we’re asking you to do are pretty grey,… what’s the challenge here?” asked Blunt. Tighter co-ordination helps, said Sandberg responded. We’d like regular cadence of meetings with our law enforcement partners, we’d love to understand the secular trends that they are aware of in our peer companies our other mediums or more broadly that would inform us on how to act faster. We’d appreciate consolidating to a single point of contact instead of bouncing between multiple agencies to do our work,” added Dorsey. Senator Lankford on Data of Suspended Accounts Both Twitter and Facebook keep records of the suspended accounts for later analysis and also for referrals by law and enforcement bodies. Sandberg was also questioned on the number of fake accounts on Facebook. Senator Manchin on Why Facebook & Twitter Don’t Operate in China Both Facebook and Twitter do not operate in China because the Chinese government hasn’t allowed both these platforms in the country. Sandberg and Dorsey unanimously replied to the senator. US Senator Cotton on Why Wikileaks is Active on Facebook and Twitter WikiLeaks and Julian Asange remain active on Facebook & Twitter. Sandberg said that these accounts don’t violate any of Facebook’s terms. Dorsey also supported the viewpoint and clarified that Twitter is open to inviting law and enforcement to investigate if needed. US Senate Vice Chairman Mark Warner Wraps It Up Warner thanked both Dorsey and Sandberg for their presence and urged both to make their platforms safer for users across the US. He also thanked them for taking down bad actors online and in helping fight against fake news. US Senate Chairman Richard Burr also thanked both the individuals for being present and addressing the senators’ questions.

Borrowing Power Amidst Rising Mortgage Rates

first_img Share December 12, 2017 530 Views In a recent Economic Center Blog by First American, their Chief Economist Mark Fleming delves into an analysis of the “near certainty” that the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) will raise the short-term Federal Funds rate on Wednesday—and what that means for first-time homebuyers.According to Fleming, the CME group estimates the probability of a 25 basis-point increase at 90.2 percent—an increase that will mainly impact those just entering the market. As most existing homeowners have a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage, it is noteworthy that a change in short-term Federal Funds rate won’t truly make an impact for homeowners to worry about.Although, it’s a different story for renters looking into entering homeownership. Fleming notes that for those renters that are potential homebuyers, any influence that a short-term rate change has on mortgage rates can be “materially consequential” to how much they can afford to buy.Therefore, Fleming asks: “Which cities offer first-time homebuyers the most borrowing power?”Using each market’s annual median renter household income, the five cities where renters have the most borrowing power are San Jose, at $490,143, San Francisco at $357,465, Washington, D.C. at $333,652, Raleigh, North Carolina at $310,007, and Seattle at $295,750.Meanwhile, the five markets where renters have the least borrowing power are, Birmingham, Alabama, with a median renter household income at $146,140, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at $151,917, Buffalo, New York at $156,375, Indianapolis, Indiana at $161,490, and finally Richmond, Virginia at $162,967.Despite borrowing power falling marginally for the potential homebuyer, Fleming’s data reports that it remains higher across all markets compared to the long-run historical average mortgage rate.“It is easy to overlook, but the reality is first-time home buyers have greater borrowing power today than in most of the last 40 years and that won’t change, even as mortgage rates rise in 2018,” Fleming added. “So, fear not, potential first-time home buyers, the American Dream will remain within reach if mortgage rates rise next year.”To view the full blog, click here.
