Wednesday Update: Swan Lake Fire Surpasses 100,000 Acres

first_imgThe restriction does not apply to charcoal grills, gas grills and backpacking or camp stoves that use fuel or compressed canisters. The Incident Command Team, for the fire, is reminding motorists to be aware of personnel, construction zones, and smoke along the Sterling Highway. Always use headlights and caution, especially during the overnight hours. For current road conditions visit http://511.alaska.gov. In response to current extreme fire danger on the Kenai Peninsula, effective immediately and until further notice, all campfires in the region, even those in established fire pits or rings in designated state campgrounds, are prohibited. This includes cooking, warming or signaling fires. The Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) has expanded to include the western portion of the Chugach National Forest and still includes the Sterling Highway corridor. Pilots can confirm the current TFR restrictions at http://tfr.faa.gov. Personal drone operation is not permitted on the refuge. Smoke is expected to shift back towards the Kenai/Soldotna area after the north winds that have been pushing smoke from the Swan Lake Fire into Cooper Landing and Seward are expected to shift to coming out of the southwest. Cahill: “We are seeing quite a different shift. The good thing with the fire behavior being reduced that should mean less smoke for the residential areas.” center_img There will be a public meeting on Wednesday, July 10, at 6 p.m. at the Cooper Landing Elementary School. Firefighters continue to work on the fire, often in remote areas not easily accessed by road or trail. Crews are establishing temporary spike camps in safe locations near the fire. This lets them monitor the fire and take action quickly without requiring time to drive, hike, and/or fly to critical areas. As the fire activity shifts over the landscape, the crews move their spike camps. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Swan Lake Fire continues to burn in higher elevations and is now estimated at 100,027 acres with 415 personnel and remains at 14% containment. Jim Cahill with the Incident Management Team: “We are definitely seeing the fire slow up as it reaches higher elevations where there is less fuel, and that’s good news which we hope continues.”last_img read more

first_imgNetflix(NEW YORK) — Netflix has just announced that the third season of The Crown will debut on November 17 by offering fans just a glimpse of Oscar-winner Olivia Colman in full regal attire as Queen Elizabeth.And it really is just a glimpse: The Favourite star strides into the frame, glances directly at camera, and walks out of frame.However, that’s more than enough to get fans of the series buzzing.Vanessa Kirby, who played Queen Elizabeth’s sister Princess Margaret in the series’ first two seasons, told ABC Radio that The Crown‘s popularity took all involved by surprise.“It almost felt like we were just doing a little theater show, because it was just a little family,” she explained. “I honestly thought it was going to be a sort of period drama that is interesting to some people like my granny and goes away.”She laughs, “It was really weird when it first landed on Netflix, and then within a couple of weeks it became clear that it was somehow touching people in quite a universal way, and you didn’t have to be British and over 70 to like it,” calling the reaction, “a complete revelation to all of us…”And how far flung are the show’s fans? “The strangest moment for me was when … we just landed in Jordan with my charity War Child … and loads of people came up to me in the airport,” she recalled.“That…was…when it sort of struck me, the level of interest in the royal family — and I think actually we care about [them] the least in England. Oddly, I think you guys are much more into than we are at home.”This upcoming season, set in the years from 1964-1977, has Academy Award nominee and Emmy winner Helena Bonham Carter playing Kirby’s former role. Other stars inlcude Josh O’Connor as Prince Charles, and Marion Bailey as the Queen Mother.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Woman arrested for helping to topple Confederate statue in North Carolina

first_img Related Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMatico iStock/Thinkstock(DURHAM, N.C.) — Deputies in North Carolina arrested a woman on Tuesday, who says she helped pull down a Confederate statue in Durham.According to ABC affiliate WTVD, Takiyah Thompson, 22, is charged with disorderly conduct by injury to a statue, damage to real property, participation in a riot with property damage in excess of $1,500 and inciting others to riot where there is property damage in excess of $1,500.North Carolina sheriff’s deputies arrest woman who said she took part in toppling Confederate statue in Durham. https://t.co/SLW5d8z2TI pic.twitter.com/LXmHI489vj— ABC News (@ABC) August 15, 2017Thompson said her actions were justified because Confederate statues represent white supremacy.She climbed a ladder to the top of the statue to tie a rope around its neck before the crowd tore it down.A video showing protesters pulling down the statue in downtown Durham, North Carolina, went viral Monday.Durham County Sheriff Mike Andrews on Tuesday referred to the action as “civil disobedience that is no longer civil.”“I am grateful the events that unfolded Monday evening did not result in serious injury or the loss of life, but the planned demonstration should serve as a sobering example of the price we all pay when civil disobedience is no longer civil,” Andrews said in a statement.  The sheriff said his office focused on “restraint and public safety” during the protest, but it would use the video to investigate the incident as an act of vandalism.“As the sheriff, I am not blind to the offensive conduct of some demonstrators nor will I ignore their criminal conduct,” the statement said. “With the help of video captured at the scene, my investigators are working to identify those responsible for the removal and vandalism of the statue.”Andrews said restraint does not mean inaction, adding that if had he instructed his deputies to engage with the hostile crowd, there would have been injuries and further chaos.Damaging the Confederate statue was a blatant violation of the law, he said, and his department plans to pursue felony charges against those who did it.The statue, which had sat in front of the city’s old courthouse since 1924, depicts a Confederate soldier wielding a muzzle rifle and lugging a canteen and bedroll, and is dedicated “in memory of the boys who wore gray.”It is unclear if Thompson has an attorney.last_img read more

Asier Illarramendi could move to Liverpool from Madrid

first_img Rafa Benitez doesn’t count on him for the season ahead, preferring to use Toni Kroos and Luka Modric in his position.  Another possibility is to use him as a bargaining chip in a different signing. CEST 16/08/2015 at 14:08 Liverpool are interested in procuring his signing. Brendan Rodgers thinks he will be a good replacement for Lucas Leiva, who is leaving after nine seasons. Real Madrid will allow him to leave if they receive an acceptable offer for the Basque, 25. Sport EN Real Madrid paid nearly €40million for the Real Sociedad man and will probably let him go for less than half of that. Asier Illarrramendi could be packing his suitcase after just two seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu. last_img read more

Gerard Piqué relates Roy Keane incident that almost made him ‘sh*t himself’

first_imgImage Courtesy: Getty ImagesAdvertisement 168NBA Finals | Brooklyn VskcuWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Edx( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) m9vWould you ever consider trying this?😱6nj4Can your students do this? 🌚cyRoller skating! Powered by Firework The Barcelona defender recalled his beginner days in the Old Trafford locker room, and how one phone call sent the Irish midfielder into a frenzy.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Getty ImagesThe Barcelona youth was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson in 2004, and the then defensive midfield starlet spend four years at the Theatre of Dreams, before returning to Catalonia in 2008 for a mere £5 million.On The Players’ Tribune, the 32 year old recollected his days with the Red Devils, and one special incident with his cell phone which made the Irishman go crazy in the dressing room to such an extent that Pique would “nearly sh*t himself!”Advertisement “One of my very first matches at Old Trafford, we were in the dressing room getting ready, and I was nervous as hell,” the Spanish international told the media outlet.“Imagine it – I’m 18 years old, and I’m sitting in that little dressing room putting on my socks next to Ruud van Nistelrooy, Ryan Giggs and Rio Ferdinand. I wanted to be invisible. I was thinking, ‘Just do your job and go unnoticed’.Advertisement “So we’re sitting there waiting for the gaffer (Alex Ferguson) to come in and speak to us, and I’m literally sitting right next to Roy Keane. The dressing room is so small that our legs are almost touching. There’s no space at all.”“It’s dead quiet. All of a sudden, you could hear this little vibration. Very soft. Roy is looking around the room.”“I realise it’s me. It’s my cell phone. I left it on vibrate, and it’s in the pocket of my pants, stuffed in the clothes bag that’s hanging right behind Roy’s head.”“Roy can’t find where the noise is coming from. Now he’s looking around the room like a maniac.”“His eyes are darting everywhere, and he’s trying to figure it out. You know the famous scene with Jack Nicholson in The Shining, when he bursts through the door? That’s what he looked like.“He screams out to everybody, ‘Whose phone is that?!’. Silence. He asks again. Silence. He asks a third time. ‘Whose. Bloody. F*****g. Phone. Is. That?!’“Finally, I spoke up, like a little boy. Very softly, I said, ‘I’m so sorry. It’s mine.’ Roy lost his mind! He went nuts in front of everybody! It was incredible. I almost shit myself. But it was a good lesson.”“Now, in 2018, everything is different. All these kids are on their iPhones before the matches. But back then, in 2006? It was a different world. You didn’t do that. Especially not at United. Not in Roy’s dressing room. It was one of a thousand mistakes that I made when I was at United.”Piqué admitted that this was just one of numerous mistakes he made during his spell with United.Keane has been infamous for his meltdowns regarding phone calls- one incident during the 47-year old’s managerial spell at Ipswich where he lambasted a reporter for keeping his phone on during a press conference.

Android Becomes Top Mobile Operating System in U.S., No. 2 Worldwide

first_imgsarah perez Related Posts Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#Apple#Google#mobile#news#NYT#web The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology For Apple, there is some good news – it has now jumped ahead of Blackberry maker RIM with a 26.2% market share in the U.S. compared with RIM’s 24.2%. Worldwide, Apple reached 17% share, beating RIM’s 15%. However, Canalys’s headline for their report – “Apple takes lead in the U.S. smartphone market” –  is a little misleading, since, as noted above, the Android OS now has a 43.6% share in this country. Apple’s U.S. “lead” here is a title that comes with qualifications: among companies who ship their own hardware, Apple leads. But Android wins it overall in the U.S., and, if the trend continues, may even rival Nokia for the number one spot worldwide at some point in the future.   Research firm Canalys released new numbers today on the mobile smartphone market, and they are impressive, especially when it comes to Android. According to the latest report, the Android platform has grown 1,309% since Q3 2009, going from 1.4 million handsets to 20.0 million by the close of Q3 2010. Android is now eating away at Nokia’s top spot among smartphone OS vendors worldwide, where Nokia still retains a 33% share compared with Android’s quarter of the market. However, in the U.S., it’s Android that’s number one, with 43.6% market share lead. Says Canalys Senior Analyst Pete Cunningham, “Android has been well received by the market and in some geographies it is becoming a sought-after consumer brand.” He also cites devices makers including Samsung, HTC, Motorola and Sony Ericsson as aiding in Android’s growth, with large shipments of devices throughout the year. Another factor that bodes well for Android is the broad range of price points available for Android devices, from high-end products like the Samsung Galaxy S or HTD Desire all the way down to affordable “budget” devices like the LG GT540 Optimus or Huawei’s Vodafone 845. The Optimus, incidentally, will be coming to Walmart in the U.S. for only $0.97 (with a two-year contract agreement), according to leaked news from unofficial T-Mobile blog TMoNews.com this morning.  Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech …last_img read more

Health IT Can Augment Human Capabilities

first_imgThe following blog was co-written by Prashant Natarajan, Product Director, Oracle Healthcare Solutions.In our book, “Demystifying Big Data and Machine Learning for Healthcare,” we expose the ways that new advanced analytics capabilities, including big data, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) can be used by healthcare organizations to help humans who work in the healthcare system do what they do, only better.  In the course of the book, we explain the key technologies that allow us to understand clinical data, including unstructured text and images, to build intelligent tools and to deploy them at scale to address real challenges in healthcare. Our hypothesis is that the biggest opportunity for advanced analytics is to use new technologies to augment human capabilities, not to replace humans.The biggest concern we hear from our readers, and from the healthcare community at large, is, “we are already struggling to get clinicians to use the decision support tools we already have. They have alert fatigue. We don’t need more technology.”  Our response is, “we agree.”Alert fatigue happens when technology doesn’t understand the very complex context of each clinical encounter. Furthermore, the opportunity to move the needle for clinical outcomes and for health system operational efficiency is greatest for situations in which there is not already a highly trained expert managing the process.  For example, the impact of technical information delivered to a clinician in the midst of a typical encounter is not high. On the other hand, interactive communication of information that will help a patient navigate a complex care trajectory, or allow a case manager to quickly identify the critical post-acute care that a patient needs following hospital discharge, can have a huge impact of outcome and cost. Hence the need for Contextually Intelligent Agents, or CIAs.Contextually Intelligent Agents CIAs leverage the new and powerful ability of machine learning and AI systems to understand human spoken and written communication, and are increasingly sensitive to subtle contextual information that can make technical information both timely and effective.OK, so you’re convinced that well-implemented CIAs could be valuable to guide patients and care providers through the complexities of modern healthcare. Your next concern is data quality.  Algorithms are only as good as the data that goes into them. To use CIAs, don’t we need to guarantee that all the data going into our algorithms is pristinely pure and error free? And if we are using unstructured data to feed our algorithms, how can we even be sure that our inferences from that data are 100 percent accurate?Our response is that you need to think about data fidelity, not absolute data accuracy. This is the insight behind the NRF Framework, which we explain in the book. The idea is that each application uses a variety of data sources, each of which has some non-zero uncertainty. Further, each application has a different sensitivity to the uncertainty in its incoming data. To communicate the next step in a patient’s post-acute physical therapy, and to encourage that patient to promptly follow through on recommended care, does not require 100 percent data accuracy. It requires an understanding of the situation and the ability to interpret responses from the patient. Furthermore, modern CIAs have the ability to clarify incoming information when the data fidelity is not up to snuff.Data Fidelity ConceptThe data fidelity concept works for input to critical treatment decisions, as well as it applies to patient coaching: In cases where errors can be dangerous, high data confidence is required. Note that most clinical information systems currently assume that system data about patients is 100 percent reliable. Ironically, studies show very high rates of both false positives and false negatives in clinical structured data, so implementation of the NRF Framework actually addresses both new analytical capabilities and current clinical risks to patients due to avoidable errors.The key element of the NRF Framework is that each data stream has a measurable quality. When the data fidelity is not high enough for the application, then measuring data quality creates the opportunity to improve quality through both data quality processes, human driven quality review and algorithmic inference from other sources of data (for example, when a coded diagnosis can be shown to be a false positive or incorrect coding by performing machine learning inference on clinical text and other measurement results.We see a bright future for humans in healthcare, in which patients have better outcomes and providers, caregivers and other actors in the health system can take advantage of CIAs to interactively provide them with the contextually appropriate, actionable information they need, when and where they need it, and all with appropriate data fidelity, as prescribed by the NRF Framework. Humans and machines, rejoice!last_img read more
