Defense Department Expected to Send Hundreds of Troops to Border

first_imgJohn Mone/AP/FileIn this April 10, 2018, file frame from video, a National Guardsman watches over Rio Grande River on the border in Roma, Texas.Defense Secretary Jim Mattis is expected to sign an order as early as Thursday sending 800 or more troops to the southern border to support the Border Patrol, a U.S. official said.Mattis is responding to a request from President Donald Trump, who says he’s “bringing out the military” to address what he’s calling a national emergency at the border.The U.S. official was not authorized to speak publicly because not all details of the military arrangement had been worked out, and so spoke on condition of anonymity.The additional troops are to provide what one official described as logistical support to the Border Patrol.This would include a variety of things such as vehicles, tents and equipment, and perhaps medical support. It was not immediately clear how many, if any, of the extra troops would be armed.Because they would not be performing law enforcement duties they would not be in violation of the Posse Comitatus Act, which prohibits the federal government from using the armed forces in a domestic police role.There already are about 2,000 National Guard troops assisting at the border under a previous Pentagon arrangement.

Phillip/APA young child is carried from the stands after being injured by a foul ball off the bat of Chicago Cubs outfielder Albert Almora Jr. during the fourth inning of a baseball game against the Houston Astros Wednesday.A young child was struck by a foul ball off the bat of Cubs outfielder Albert Almora Jr. in a terrifying scene during the fourth inning of Wednesday’s nationally televised game in Houston.Almora kept his eyes on the ball as it whizzed past the third-base line, past the existing safety netting and into the stands at Minute Maid Park. He clasped his head in his hands and let out a cry as fans gasped. He then fell to his knees burying his face in his arms. Teammate Jason Heyward and manager Joe Maddon attempted to console him as he cried.The Astros infield also dropped to their knees as a man, who seemed to be with the girl, scooped her up and rushed the child up the stadium stairs.Here is Albert Almora’s reaction as his foul ball struck a very young fan. A really horrific moment. Kids fall in love with the game of baseball after going to the ballpark and experiencing a Major League Baseball game. This shouldn’t happen. PRAYERS. 🙏🏼— Cubs Live (@Cubs_Live) May 30, 2019Almora struggled to play through the remainder of the inning. When it was over, he walked into the stands where he spoke with a security guard. The conversation ended in an embrace with Almora becoming overcome with emotion.After Albert Almora Jr. struck a young fan with a foul ball, in between innings he went immediately over to that section to ask about the situation. You can see he is overwhelmed with emotion as him and the security guard have a moment. This is just a terrible & sad situation.— Cubs Live (@Cubs_Live) May 30, 2019“All we heard was screaming,” said David LeVasseur told the Houston Chronicle. “We saw this dad pick up a child and run up the stairs. He took off running.”LeVasseur said the ball eventually landed at his feet.“I (came) upstairs and see the first aid guys up there and the dad is holding the girl. She (was) alert, she’s conscious, she’s fine. I was just going to give somebody in the family the ball. They kind of, naturally, shook it off. I asked the first aid guy if she was OK and he said he didn’t know.”In a statement, the Astros confirmed the girl was taken to the hospital but offered no details on her condition. “We are not able to disclose any further details at this time. The Astros send our thoughts and prayers to the entire family,” the team said.The Astros released the following statement. Our thoughts are with the entire family.— Houston Astros (@astros) May 30, 2019Speaking with reporters following the game, Almora said, “As soon as I hit it, the first person I locked eyes on was her.” He said the rest of the at-bat “was kind of a blur.”“I had to try to keep my composure during that at-bat, but when that half-inning was over, I just couldn’t hold it anymore,” he added.In 2017, New York Yankee Todd Frazier hit a foul ball that struck a young girl in the stands. The incident renewed the debate over more extensive protection for fans in major league ballparks, eventually leading all 30 teams to implement extended safety nets in 2018.MORE: Houston Matters Discusses Fan Safety At Sporting Events To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Sharecenter_img X 00:00 /07:27 last_img read more

The PACS can be easily integrated with most practice’s EMR solution for a complete patient management platform. The system is built on a user-friendly platform, with intuitive controls that requires minimal training to operate. Included Web-based dictation and voice recognition allows physicians and staff to instantly create reports from any Web-enabled location.The solution is integrated with a tracking software component that greatly reduces the chances for any oversights, and allows the practice to establish rules for patient follow-ups. Currently, in clinical settings where the mammography viewer and the tracking system are not combined, a radiologist will generate a report and then a different individual will review a batch of reports and manually manage the tracking process of denoting status and next steps. With Opal-Mammo, the radiologist’s report seamlessly ties into the tracking system’s follow-up protocols, with persistent reminders in place to ensure timely continued care.The Opal-Mammo solution is available as a site license, allowing practices to expand to other locations without additional fees. Competitive solutions often require the purchase of new licenses for extra users or clinics. Opal-Mammo is also truly Web-based, with all of the tools available on nearly any internet-connected device, giving practitioners simple mobile access to patient data.”Opal-Mammo is a real breakthrough for women’s health clinics and other locations that need a high-performing and cost-effective mammography solution,” said Steve Deaton, vice president of sales for Viztek. “It’s the first solution that combines a Web-based mammography viewer with linked tracking software. With Opal-Mammo, practices can ensure that patients receive the right care and follow-up based upon their scan diagnosis and other factors. The intelligent software establishes certain actions throughout the patient cycle. For example, it will progress a patient through the ‘follow-up’ stage once they have completed a biopsy. It offers efficiency gains for the practice, allowing them to better serve more patients every day.”Opal-Mammo features Viztek’s innovative turnaround time (TAT) management feature, a custom dashboard which uses color coding and review time parameters to manage priority levels for patients. The solution is also fully compliant with the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) standards, a set of guidelines that helps ensure care uniformity and the highest quality patient service.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more Technology | Cybersecurity | August 07, 2019 ScImage Introduces PICOM ModalityGuard for Cybersecurity ScImage Inc. is bridging the gap between security and functionality with the introduction of the PICOM ModalityGuard…. read more Technology | Mammography Reporting Software | July 25, 2019 Hologic Partners With MagView to Develop Unifi EQUIP Solution Hologic announced a partnership with mammography information solutions provider MagView to develop Unifi EQUIP, an… read more Technology | May 15, 2012 Viztek Opal-Mammo Combines PACS, Tracking Software 100% Web-Based Solution Enables Practices to Expand to Multiple Locations with Flexibility and Anywhere Accesslast_img read more

ISPA nominated Mozilla in the Internet Villain category for DNS over HTTPs

first_imgOn Tuesday, the Internet Services Providers’ Association (ISPA) which is also UK’s Trade Association for providers of internet services announced that the nomination of Mozilla Firefox has been withdrawn from the “Internet Villain Category”. This decision came after they saw a global backlash to their nomination of Mozilla for their DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) push. ISPA withdrew the Internet Villain category as a whole from the ISPA Awards 2019 ceremony which will be held today in London. The official blog post reads, “Last week ISPA included Mozilla in our list of Internet Villain nominees for our upcoming annual awards. In the 21 years the event has been running it is probably fair to say that no other nomination has generated such strong opinion. We have previously given the award to the Home Secretary for pushing surveillance legislation, leaders of regimes limiting freedom of speech and ambulance-chasing copyright lawyers. The villain category is intended to draw attention to an important issue in a light-hearted manner, but this year has clearly sent the wrong message, one that doesn’t reflect ISPA’s genuine desire to engage in a constructive dialogue. ISPA is therefore withdrawing the Mozilla nomination and Internet Villain category this year.” Mozilla Firefox, which is the preferred browser for a lot of users encourages privacy protection and feature options to keep one’s Internet activity as private as possible. One of the recently proposed features – DoH (DNS-over-HTTPS) which is still in the testing phase didn’t receive a good response from the ISPA trade association. Hence, the ISPA decided to nominate Mozilla as one of the “Internet Villains” among the nominees for 2019. In their announcement, the ISPA mentioned that Mozilla is one of the Internet Villains for supporting DoH (DNS-over-HTTPS). Mozilla on this announcement responded by saying that this is one way to know that they are fighting the good fight. On the other hand this announcement amongst the community garnered a lot of criticism. They rebuked ISPA for promoting online censorship and enabling rampant surveillance. Additionally there were comments of ISPA being the Internet Villian in this scenario. Some the tweet responses are given below: Along with Mozilla, Article 13 Copyright Directive and United States President Donald Trump also appeared in the nominations list. Here’s how ISPA explained in their announcement: “Mozilla – for their proposed approach to introduce DNS-over-HTTPS in such a way as to bypass UK filtering obligations and parental controls, undermining internet safety standards in the UK. Article 13 Copyright Directive – for threatening freedom of expression online by requiring ‘content recognition technologies’ across platforms President Donald Trump – for causing a huge amount of uncertainty across the complex, global telecommunications supply chain in the course of trying to protect national security” Why are the ISPs pushing back against DNS-over-HTTPS? DoH basically means that your DNS requests will be encrypted over an HTTPS connection. Traditionally, the DNS requests are unencrypted and your DNS provider or the ISP can monitor/control your browsing activity. Without DoH, you can easily enforce blocking/content filtering through your DNS provider or the ISP can do that when they want. However, DoH takes that out of the equation and hence, you get a private browsing experience. Admittedly big broadband ISPs and politicians are concerned that large scale third-party deployments of DoH, which encrypts DNS requests using the common HTTPS protocol for websites (i.e. turning IP addresses into human readable domain names), could disrupt their ability to censor, track and control related internet services. The above position is however a particularly narrow way of looking at the technology, because at its core DoH is about protecting user privacy and making internet connections more secure. As a result DoH is often praised and widely supported by the wider internet community. Mozilla is not alone in pushing DoH but they found themselves being singled out by the ISPA because of their proposal to enable the feature by default within Firefox which is yet to happen. Google is also planning to introduce its own DoH solution in its Chrome browser. The result could be that ISPs lose a lot of their control over DNS and break their internet censorship plans. Is DoH useful for internet users? If so, how? On one side of the coin, DoH lets users bypass any content filters enforced by the DNS or the ISPs. So, it is a good thing that it will put a stop to Internet censorship and DoH will help in this. But, on the other side, if you are a parent, you can no longer set content filters if your kid utilizes DoH on Mozilla Firefox. And potentially DoH could be a solution for some to bypass parental controls, which could be a bad thing. And this particular reason is given by the ISPA for nominating Mozilla for the Internet Villian category. It says that DNS-over-HTTPS will bypass UK filtering obligations and parental controls, undermining internet safety standards in the UK. Also, using DoH means that you can no longer use the local host file, in case you are using it for ad blocking or for any other reason. The Internet community criticized the way ISPA handled the back lash and withdrew the category as a whole. One of the user comments on Hacker News read, “You have to love how all their “thoughtful criticisms” of DNS over HTTPS have nothing to do with the things they cited in their nomination of Mozilla as villain. Their issue was explicitly “bypassing UK filtering obligations” not that load of flaming horseshit they just pulled out of their ass in response to the backlash.” Read Next Highlights from Mary Meeker’s 2019 Internet trends report How Verizon and a BGP Optimizer caused a major internet outage affecting Amazon, Facebook, CloudFlare among others Time for data privacy: DuckDuckGo CEO Gabe Weinberg in an interview with Kara Swisherlast_img read more

first_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Your browser does not support the audio element. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The Arizona Cardinals fell short of their goals in 2013, but with 10 wins — including one against the eventual Super Bowl Champion Seahawks in Seattle — they certainly got many around the NFL to take notice of what is happening in the desert.A guest of Doug and Wolf’s on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM Thursday, former NFL coach and current NBC analyst Tony Dungy had good things to say about the team. “They’re very close,” he said. “And you saw that in the game they went up there and won in Seattle. They have the formula, they know how to play Seattle and San Francisco.”center_img LISTEN: Tony Dungy, NFL Insider Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 0 Comments   Share   The Cardinals went just 1-3 against those two teams last season, but were competitive enough in the losses to make you think the gap between them is not particularly wide. “They’ve got a great defense; they’re fast and aggressive, just like Seattle is,” Dungy added. “They’re very, very close.“It reminds me of when I was in Tampa early on and Green Bay was the cream of the NFL, and we played Green Bay a couple of close games and our guys knew that they were getting close and it was just a matter of continuing to build and not long after that, Tampa was hoisting the Super Bowl trophy. So I think you’re going to see the same thing.”Of course, Dungy was not in Tampa when the Buccaneers finally broke through to win the Super Bowl in 2003, as he had already been replaced by Jon Gruden. However, Dungy did win eventually win a championship a few years later when he coached the Indianapolis Colts to a Super Bowl XLI victory. Out of coaching since 2008, he believes the Cardinals have a good leader in Bruce Arians.“I love Coach Arians and the way he has kind of built this team,” Dungy said. “So it’s going to be really, really fun to watch them next year compete in this division that’s probably the toughest in football.”last_img read more

You’ve probably seen the photo below hundreds of times; Navagio beach on the island of Zante is one of the most photographed in Greece.

How to get to Naxos: Beautiful beaches Naxos may have, but international airports it does not.

If you want to spend a couple of days in the capital, there are also direct flights from Athens to Naxos.

Another volcanic island in the Cyclades, Milos is earning itself a reputation as a holiday hotspot with international tourists, although its turquoise water and rocky hills have been popular with locals for years. Also known as ‘the Island of Colours’ Milos is relatively quiet, compared with its bigger neighbours, so stop-by soon to enjoy its unspoilt landscape. Find flights and start exploring Kefalonia 7.

You might feel like you’ve already been there; you’re bound to have seen the iconic shots of domed white-washed houses set against bright blue sea (if not, see below). Well, it’s even better in person and you might be surprised to find that not all the beaches are pristine swathes of golden sands, but some are in fact black!
