Ponzi scam ED attaches assets worth Rs 278 cr of Telanganabased firm

first_imgNew Delhi: The ED on Tuesday said it has attached assets worth Rs 278 crore in connection with its money laundering probe in an alleged ponzi scam involving a Telangana-based multi-level marketing group. In a statement, the agency said residential plots, apartments, farm houses and commercial buildings located in Delhi and Noida and bank deposits in the accounts of Pawan Malhan and Anita Malhan, the main promoters of the firm EBIZ.COM Pvt Ltd, their family members and associates have been attached as part of a provisional order issued under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ At present, Pawan Malhan and his son Hitik are under custody of the Telangana Police in the case, it said. The total value of the attachment is Rs 277.97 crore and the assets include 29 immovable properties purchased at a cost of Rs 34.60 crore and bank deposits amounting to Rs 242.25 crore lying in 124 accounts maintained in the name of the accused directors and the firm, according to the statement. The ED said the company and its promoters “fraudulently collected about Rs 1,064 crore from around 12 lakh subscribers”. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K Directors of the company “cheated the common public by propagating false promises of earning quick and easy money and inviting gullible public to become members of their pyramid scheme in the guise of direct selling multi-level marketing network by introducing worthless products like free computer education packages, suit lengths among others”, the agency said. The purpose of introducing sub-standard and over-priced products was only to masquerade their pyramid fraud as a direct-selling product company, it added. To lure more gullible investors, they extensively advertised their commission model in which very high commissions were paid to existing members for enrolment of new members in the down links of the pyramid structure, the ED said while describing the modus operandi of the alleged ponzi scam. Investigation revealed that funds were fraudulently collected from the gullible investors as deposits towards membership in the scheme through a chain of agents spread across the country, it said. “The funds collected were illegally diverted into the personal accounts of the directors, their family members and other associates under various heads including dividends, high salaries and incentives,” the agency alleged. It said the funds collected from the subscribers were “layered” into the personal accounts of family and close associates and then invested in movable and immovable properties in order to conceal them. The central agency filed a case under the PMLA based on an FIR filed by the Telangana Police.last_img read more

Voters must think critically on social media this election to avoid fake

first_imgVANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – As the federal election campaign continues, one expert says Canadians will continue to see attempts to sway votes, and need to think critically to recognize misinformation on social media.Political scientist Max Cameron with the University of British Columbia says he’s concerned about the impact of so-called “fake news” on democracy, and it will be an issue during the 2019 election campaign.RELATED: Person who posted fake Mercer endorsement ‘not involved on the local campaign,’ Conservatives say“There is an enormous amount of illiteracy and confusion in the public mind around what people consume on social media,” he says.A meme misquoting comedian Rick Mercer that was spotted on a Facebook page for a Conservative candidate this week is just one example of how easy it is to spread false information and quotes, Cameron says.“If it was attempting to be funny, it wasn’t done very well because I think it looked deceptive. A lot of voters are easily deceived.”RELATED: ‘Not true. All fake’: Rick Mercer responds after false quote posted on Conservative Facebook pageHe says people need to be careful about what they share online.“The most obvious takeaway would be – don’t engage in anything that looks deceptive. We are being manipulated by algorithms even when we’re unaware of it. We’re manipulated because we have a predisposition to be manipulated.”Cameron’s advice is not to react or comment with emotion, and to think twice before sharing what could be entirely false.last_img read more

Picked a fight with labour Unions block mail trucks at BC Canada

OTTAWA — Canada Post employees have been legislated back to work after more than five weeks of rotating strikes, but that isn’t stopping their brethren from picking up picket signs to support them — and once again slowing the mail in the process.Just after the federal government passed a law this week forcing an end to strikes by Canadian Union of Postal Workers members, the union warned that other unions could act out in response.And, Wednesday, they did just that.CUPW says several major unions in British Columbia set up picket lines at the Pacific Processing Centre in Vancouver.Canada Post workers’ union vows to fight in court if back-to-work legislation passes‘Canada Post is dying before our eyes’: Strike exposes how postal service has changed in online eraMonth-long backlog of undelivered mail piles up with no settlement to Canada Post strikes in sightThe protesters said they would allow workers into the facility, which is the third-largest postal sorting plant in the country, but trucks with mail would not be allowed in or out.CUPW national president Mike Palecek says while his 50,000 members are prohibited from picketing, other union members face no similar restrictions.“What we’re seeing in Vancouver today is that instead of resolving our dispute with Canada Post, the Trudeau government has picked a fight with labour,” Palecek said in a statement. “‘An injury to one is an injury to all’ is much more than a slogan.”The union has called the back-to-work legislation, Bill C-89, unconstitutional.The legislation became law late Monday, forcing postal workers back to work Tuesday while an arbitration process is launched to try to settle the contract differences between Canada Post and its major union.The Crown corporation said it was doing what it could to get mail and parcels sorted in B.C. while the non-CUPW pickets disrupted delivery truck traffic.“Canada Post is making every effort to minimize service disruptions and resolve the situation.”The agency has warned of significant delivery delays across the country through January as a result of the rotating strikes by CUPW members that began Oct. 22. read more

This robot uses artificial intelligence to paint based on the sounds it

first_imgIs art strictly a human thing? Or can machines create it, too? Benjamin Grosser, an artist and composer, decided to explore artificial intelligence and art. He created the Interactive Robotic Painting Machine to see what a robot is capable of.A piece of canvas sits in between two trays of paint. A mechanized arm of sorts with a paintbrush sits above the canvas. A microphone stands to the side of the machine. As sound travels into the microphone, the machine’s arm selects colors and moves them along the canvas.All sounds, regardless of type, factor into the robot’s decision-making process. The machine can listen to itself, as evidenced in the video below, or it can listen to a myriad sounds. Each sound doesn’t translate to specific movement. Rather, each sound influences the robot’s decisions about how it paints.With regards to the video below, the robot only had itself to listen to. The mechanical sounds of its moving parts translated into clipped linear and curved strokes of various hues, lengths, and opacities. Grosser said that he critiqued the machine while it painted. Apparently, negative commentary led to a piece lacking in substance.This begs the question, “What qualifies as art?” Grosser calls upon the viewer to consider the machine “an artist in its own right” because an artist’s environment, aural, visual, and otherwise, inevitably factor into the final piece.Do you think the robot’s an artist? Do you think its creations qualify as art?See more at Ben Grosser, via Engadgetlast_img read more

Lt Colonel Bob Brocklehurst and Tara Bourdukofsky reflect on the Battle of

first_imgRetired Lt. Colonel Bob Brocklehurst and Tara Bourdukofsky spoke at the 75th commemoration of the bombing and evacuation of Dutch Harbor. (Berett Wilber/KUCB)This week, we’re sharing stories from the Battle of Attu and the greater Aleutian campaign of World War II.The conflict ended in the 1940s, but its legacy is still very much alive — both for the veterans who served and the Unangan people who were forced to leave during the fighting.Even now, many vets have never spoken to an evacuee, and vice versa.To commemorate what happened 75 years ago, KUCB invited people on both sides to sit down and reflect together.Today, we hear from Tara Bourdukofsky and retired Lieutenant Colonel Bob Brocklehurst. Her grandmother survived the internment, and he served as a fighter pilot in the U.S. Air Force.A note to listeners and readers: A person in this story uses an offensive word for Japanese people.Listen nowBROCKLEHURST: We were all young. We were 21 years old. The oldest could have been 27. And we were ready to go. We wanted to fly, and we wanted to just come on down to the Aleutians. I don’t think anybody in my squadron thought anything about being afraid. You have to do your job. It was war. That’s all we thought about.BOURDUKOFSKY: My experience of the whole evacuation and internment time comes from the perspective of my grandmother, who was interned in Funter Bay. You know, the Aleuts of St. Paul, and specifically her. Her experience.I was probably about 21 years old when I found out about it. And she would talk, but I could tell that it was difficult. She would only she would only talk for so long, and she would just have to stop. I didn’t really push her, but she did want to tell her story. She did want other elders to get up and talk about it. She did realize how important it was for us to know our own history.To hear what happened to the Aleuts, the Unangax, here in Unalaska … There are other communities that were equally impacted and affected by this. I know very, very little about their experiences. I wonder a lot about Attu and the Aleuts who were taken as prisoners of war over to Japan.BROCKLEHURST: See, I didn’t know that at the time. We didn’t know that. When I got there, our army was still fighting three battle areas …BOURDUKOFSKY: So Bob, when you were in Attu, during that time …BROCKLEHURST: I was the first fighter pilot to land on Attu and Shemya. Yes, ma’am.BOURDUKOFSKY: And when you were there, were the Aleuts already taken as prisoners of war at that point?BROCKLEHURST: I never heard anything about the Natives. I often wondered what happened to the Natives up here. I flew into Atka, I flew in to Adak, and I never heard anything or saw anything about the Natives. It was always on my mind. I didn’t know about the evacuation of the Natives and that they were sent to other places in Alaska. Of course, here at the 75th commemoration of the bombing of Dutch Harbor, I learned the story of the elders as you describe it. A very, very touching story.BOURDUKOFSKY: I’ve always had kind of mixed emotions and thoughts about it, all these years growing up. It has to do with the profound and deep respect that my grandmother, Mary Bourdukofsky, had for the military.I think I’ve heard that Alaska Natives serve at the highest rates per capita. And among Alaska Natives, the Aleuts are the highest. Maybe that’s where some of that respect comes from. Because my grandfather was Alaska Territorial Guard, and my dad a Vietnam veteran.And yet, at the same time, when I was learning about what happened during WWII, there would always be these horrific stories about the shape of the homes, the damage that was done, and personal items that were stolen and whatnot at the hands of our own. The military. The two scenarios that I’ve grown up with have always presented in my mind a little bit of like, “Wow. I don’t know.” I respect the military, and yet I also feel badly that something like that happened by our own military. I’m not even sure what my question would be …BROCKLEHURST: At the time we came up here, the impression we were given — and this was voiced oral stuff — was that we had nothing to stop the Japanese. They figured that the Japanese, if they wanted to, could have come up the Aleutians, taken Anchorage, and come down past down Vancouver to Seattle, Washington.So we were rushed up as an additional squadron with the 18th, which was up here. The impression was given that if the Japs came, we were the only force to stop them. And we probably couldn’t with that limited force.And I was talking to my son last night after the meeting, and I was thinking we didn’t have much choice but to move the Aleut Natives out. Because they could all have become prisoners of the Japanese or killed. It was probably the best thing that we could do to save the Native population. It was done very poorly. [They were] sent to a bad place, and it certainly wasn’t handled professionally. But I still think that it was probably the best thing to do. It’s just too bad that we couldn’t handle it properly.This story was produced by Zoe Sobel and Laura Kraegel with KUCB.last_img read more

International Womens Day being observed

first_imgThe International Women’s Day is being observed in the country, as elsewhere across the globe, on Thursday with a call to help forge a better, inclusive and gender-equal world, reports news agency UNB.The theme of this year’s day is – Time is Now: Rural and urban activists transforming women’s lives’.Echoing the priority theme of the upcoming 62nd session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women, the International Women’s Day will also draw attention to the rights and activism of rural women, who make up over a quarter of the world population and majority of the 43 percent of women in the global agricultural labour force, according to the UN.They till the lands and plant seeds to feed nations, ensure food security for their communities and build climate resilience. Yet, on almost every measure of development, because of deep seated gender inequalities and discrimination, rural women fare worse than rural men or urban women, it said.Different organisations have chalked out elaborate programmes, including rallies, discussions and cultural events, to mark the day.Meanwhile, president Abdul Hamid and prime minister Sheikh Hasina have issued separate massages on the occasion.In his message, the president expressed the hope that all irrespective of males and females will work together to ensure sustainable development of the country.The prime minister in her message urged all to build developed, prosperous Bangladesh ensuring women’s participation in all spheres of the national development.last_img read more

Stanson’s CDS solutions are designed to safely reduce the cost and potential for harm from unnecessary care, by providing easy-to-use, real-time alerts and analytics to help guide physicians’ decisions.Stanson Health provides previously tested and validated CDS alerts, which reduce the potential for “false-positive” alerts that can cause alert fatigue. The alerts are designed to reduce unnecessary care for populations of patients, including care in physician offices, emergency departments and hospitals. The CDS recommendations are based on guidelines that are widely accepted by physicians and other healthcare providers, such as Choosing Wisely recommendations from the American Board of Internal Medicine. The analytics solution provides comparative information on physician acceptance of CDS recommendations and also utilization data that inform discussions about high quality and cost-effective care. For example, a physician can compare how often he or she accepts and rejects Choosing Wisely guidelines related to performing MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) with non-specific lower back pain with other physicians. This information can be very useful as physician organizations prepare for payment reform.Scott Weingarten, M.D., chairman of the board of Stanson Health, said, “With the recent changes in the healthcare and the emergence of population health, new forms of CDS are needed. The CDS should be integrated into the workflow, personalized for each patient, and proven to reduce costs and improve quality. Moreover, care is more likely to improve if there is both CDS and comparative analytics for physicians to understand how they compare with their colleagues in their acceptance of CDS recommendations.”Evidence-based, physician-designed logic drives Stanson alerts, ensuring that an alert will only fire when the patient meets a specific profile and will offer recommendations relevant to the physician’s decision. Physicians do not need to alter their workflow to access pertinent recommendations because the system ensures that the alert will deploy only when appropriate.”Having evidence-based CDS integrated into the electronic health record (EHR) helps promote high value care and eliminate unnecessary and often costly tests and procedures by alerting physicians at the time and place decisions are made” said Jennie Dulac, RN, MS, SCL Health System vice president, clinical quality improvement. “Our industry is changing from a billing-by-volume system to one that rewards high-quality care. To adapt in this transforming environment, we engage with our physicians as leaders in this changing delivery system. By positioning our physicians as ‘co-dependent equals,’ it allows us to ensure that those on the front lines of care delivery stay connected and assist in the transition to accountable care.”For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 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).

December 8, 2014 — A study presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) investigated a new device that may result in more comfortable mammography for women. According to the study, standardizing the pressure applied in mammography would reduce pain associated with breast compression without sacrificing image quality.Compression of the breast is necessary in mammography to optimize image quality and minimize absorbed radiation dose. However, mechanical compression of the breast in mammography often causes discomfort and pain and deters some women from mammography screening.An additional problem associated with compression is the variation that occurs when the technologist adjusts compression force to breast size, composition, skin tautness and pain tolerance. Over-compression is common in certain European countries, especially for women with small breasts; under-compression is more common in the United States.“This means that the breast may be almost not compressed at all, which increases the risks of image quality degradation and extra radiation dose,” said Woutjan Branderhorst, Ph.D., researcher in the department of biomedical engineering and physics at the Academic Medical Center in Amsterdam.Overall, adjustments in force can lead to substantial variation in the amount of pressure applied to the breast, ranging from less than 3 kilopascals (kPa) to greater than 30 kPa.Branderhorst and colleagues theorized that a compression protocol based on pressure rather than force would reduce the pain and variability associated with the current force-based compression protocol. Force is the total impact of one object on another, whereas pressure is the ratio of force to the area over which it is applied.The researchers developed a device that displays the average pressure during compression and studied its effects in a double-blinded, randomized control trial on 433 asymptomatic women scheduled for screening mammography.Three of the four compressions for each participant were standardized to a target force of 14 dekanewtons (daN). One randomly assigned compression was standardized to a target pressure of 10 kPa.Participants scored pain on a numerical rating scale, and three experienced breast screening radiologists indicated which images required a retake. The 10 kPa pressure did not compromise radiation dose or image quality, and, on average, the women reported it to be less painful than the 14 daN force.There are an estimated 39 million mammography exams performed every year in the United States alone, which translates into more than 156 million compressions. Pressure standardization could help avoid a large amount of unnecessary pain and optimize radiation dose without adversely affecting image quality or the proportion of required retakes.The device that displays average pressure is easily added to existing mammography systems, according to Branderhorst.“Essentially, what is needed is the measurement of the contact area with the breast, which then is combined with the measured applied force to determine the average pressure in the breast,” he said. “A relatively small upgrade of the compression paddle is sufficient.”Further research will be needed to determine if the 10 kPa pressure is the optimal target.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Breast Biopsy Systems | July 24, 2019 Fujifilm Releases Tomosynthesis Biopsy Option for Aspire Cristalle Mammography System Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A.

Electron 300 releases with experimental textfield and button APIs

first_imgThe Electron team announced the first stable release Electron 3.0.0, yesterday. Electron 3.0.0 comes with upgrades, fixes, and other changes. Electron is a framework which helps create native cross-platform applications with web technologies such as JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. Let’s see what’s new in Electron 3.0.0. New Features and changes There are two new features added in Electron 3.0.0, namely, TextField and Button APIs. However, these APIs are currently experimental and have been therefore turned off by default. You can enable these APIs with the enable_view_api build flag. The fs.readSync feature now works with massive files.  There’s a new netLog API added for dynamic logging control. Breaking API changes With Electron 3.0.0, updates have been made to menu item order control. The did-get-response-details and did-get-redirect-request events have been removed. JSON is no longer used to send the result of ipcRenderer.sendSync. The api::Window has been renamed to api::BrowserWindow. The app-command media-play_pause has been renamed to media-play-pause. macOS A new workspace notifications support has been added. There’s also a mouse forward functionality now on macOS. Windows A DIP has been added to/from screen coordinate conversions. Bug Fixes The issue with fs.statSyncNoException throwing exceptions has been fixed. The occurrence of a crash when loading site with jquery has been fixed. Also, the crash in net::ClientSocketHandle destructor has been fixed. Now, with Electron 3.0.0, the focus change will be notified right away rather than on next tick. macOS The context menu click callback has been fixed. The tray.setContextMenu crash has been resolved. Also, tray title crash has been fixed. The mac protocol that used to get set to none after calling app.removeAsDefaultProtocolClient, is resolved. Linux BrowserWindow.focus() for offscreen windows has been fixed. For more information on Electron 3.0.0, check out the official release notes.

PHILADELPHIA – Whos gonna run this town tonight

first_img PHILADELPHIA – Who’s gonna run this town tonight? Jay-Z is.The rap mogul’s Made in America music festival will stay in the heart of Philadelphia after Mayor Jim Kenney reversed course on his decision to move the event.Kenney and Roc Nation’s chief operating officer said Monday the festival would remain on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway as they work out operational issues.“We think it’s a very important event for the city,” Kenney told reporters at City Hall. “We think it’s important for our profile, for our tourism and we want to make it work.”Earlier, he said in a statement that the event belonged in Philadelphia — “the birthplace of our country” — and he was “optimistic that we can turn an unfortunate misunderstanding into a positive outcome and even stronger event.”The city had said last week the annual festival would need to move to a new location starting in 2019, citing how long it takes to set up and knock down the two-day festival.“It was overload with the folks out there, because we had the NFL draft, we have the Fourth of July thing, we have Made in America and there are events out there — there’s runs out there all the time —and those people just get a little fatigued. But we’ll figure out how to address those problems,” Kenney said.Jay-Z, whose hits include “Run This Town,” had accused the mayor of showing “zero appreciation” for what the festival had done for Philadelphia.Made in America draws up to 50,000 people annually to the parkway, a heavily visited expanse of museums, monuments, fountains and the famed “Rocky” steps at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.Amid the controversy, Milwaukee officials extended an invitation to Jay-Z to bring the festival there.Nicki Minaj, Meek Mill and Post Malone are set to perform this year in Philadelphia.“We are happy to announce the Made in America festival will continue at the heart of the Philadelphia, the Benjamin Franklin Parkway for many years to come,” Desiree Perez, chief operating officer of Roc Nation, said in a joint statement with the mayor.

Jay-Z, who founded the festival in 2012, is expressing disappointment after Philadelphia city officials confirmed Tuesday, July 17, 2018, that the annual Labor Day weekend music festival will no longer be held on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in “the heart of the city” after the 2018 event, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.
