dhzdsuhvl

first_imgNew Delhi: The country’s fiscal deficit touched 134.2 per cent of the full-year revised budgeted estimate at the end of February 2019, mainly due to tepid growth in revenue collections, official data showed Friday. In absolute term, fiscal deficit for April-February 2018-19 was Rs 8.51 lakh crore as against the revised estimate (RE) of Rs 6.34 lakh crore for the entire year, according to Controller General of Accounts (CGA) data. However, Economic Affairs Secretary S C Garg told reporters that the government is committed to restrict the fiscal deficit at 3.4 per cent of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) as envisaged in the Budget.

In the same period last fiscal, the revenue collection was 78.2 per cent of the estimates. The government’s tax revenue stood at Rs 10.94 lakh crore and non-tax revenue was Rs 1.7 lakh crore. Total expenditure incurred by the government during April-February 2018-19 was Rs 21.88 lakh crore (89.08 per cent of RE), of which Rs 19.15 lakh crore was on revenue account and Rs 2.73 lakh crore on capital account. Out of the total revenue expenditure, Rs 5.01 lakh crore was on account of interest payments and Rs 2.63 lakh crore on major subsidies. Meanwhile, the finance ministry in a statement said that Rs 5.96 lakh crore has been transferred to the state governments as devolution of share of taxes by the central government up to February, which is Rs 67,043 crore higher than the corresponding period of last year 2017-18.last_img read more

The troops were deployed not far from the frontier post called Ruzizi1, on the River Ruzizi, near Bukavu, a university town in the Ruzizi Valley and between lakes Kivu and Tanganyika.The UN Organization Mission in the DRC (MONUC) said it sent a team of military observers to Rwanda to make enquiries.Rwanda has said that despite its recent threats, it has sent no troops into the DRC to disarm Hutu rebels accused of carrying out the 1994 genocide which killed up to 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus.MONUC has found evidence indicating the presence of organized armed forces in the eastern DRC within the month, but says it has been unable to identify them.

Key to the game Will OSU throw the ball downfield against Nebraska

OSU Redshirt Junior Quarterback J.T. Barret (16) drops back into the pocket for a pass during the game against Northwestern on Oct. 29, 2016 at Ohio Stadium. The Buckeyes won 24-20. Credit: Mason Swires | Assistant Photo EditorThe sixth-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes square off in the biggest home game so far in 2016 against the No. 10 Nebraska Cornhuskers in primetime in Ohio Stadium on Saturday. The Scarlet and Gray are honoring the 1916 Big Ten championship team and Chic Harley, who served during World War I, with a special-edition, throwback uniform.The jerseys will be a new look for OSU, but many rather witness a change in the style of play than what the Buckeye offense has displayed the past four weeks. Enhanced by excellence at times, and marred by stagnation on other occasions, the passing game for OSU has been riddled with inconsistency, which has kept fans on edge. At Wednesday’s press conference, Meyer indicated that a breakout in the downfield passing game is coming from redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett.“I’m ready if you are,” Meyer said.In last week’s 24-20 victory over Northwestern, OSU attempted just a handful of passes downfield and only registered one completion over 20 yards, which set up the game-winning score. Barrett said that it’s difficult for the receivers to run past defenders when they’re playing 10 to 12 yards off the ball — a look that Northwestern often showed the Buckeyes.One of OSU’s touchdown drives against Northwestern took just nine plays to go 94 yards in under three minutes. Two drives later, OSU milked the clock for more than eight minutes and scored after 15 plays. Meyer said whether it be up-tempo or wearing a defense down throughout a drive, he just cares about scoring.“If we’re getting certain defenses that we don’t like (in up-tempo), then you get stuck in a bad play,” he said. “Throughout the course of the game we can go to tempo any time that we want.”Barrett might face his toughest challenge of the year going against a Nebraska secondary that has ball-hawking tendencies. Nebraska leads the NCAA in interceptions with 15, including two returned for touchdowns. Safeties Nate Gerry and Kieron Williams lead the team and the Big Ten with four interceptions, making the Cornhuskers one of the most difficult teams to throw downfield against.Nebraska allowed one pass for more than 20 yards in its loss to No. 8 Wisconsin the previous week. However, The Cornhuskers surrendered 5.9 yards per carry on the ground against the Badgers. Redshirt freshman running back Mike Weber and junior H-back Curtis Samuel have been heavily involved in the passing game and have been given a combined 25 to 30 carries each game.Establishing an effective running game with Weber and Samuel might force Gerry and Williams to play up, therefore opening up the second level for receivers like redshirt sophomore Noah Brown.“We definitely work on the deep ball every week in practice. We try to put it in the game plan every week,” Brown said. “We’re very confident in the deep ball and we’ll get it done.”Kickoff is at 8 p.m. read more

EYEWITNESS Return…

But you know exactly what’s going on with “choke and rob”!! But “kick-down-the-door (KDTD) bandits” takes graphic telegraphing even further…It immediately evokes the image of men so determined to rob you, they’re brazen enough to kick down the door of your castle!!Yet it doesn’t do justice to the terror inflicted on the hapless homeowners by the KDTD bandits with the “big guns”. That’s their trademark equipment and they relish wounding, maiming and even murdering the victims with them to extract loot and booty. The closest parallel we have is the pirates and buccaneers of yore who were “sic’d” on by the monarchs of England and France to plunder Spanish wealth in the New World.The parallels go beyond the gratuitous violence and looting, because back in the 1980s, when the KDTD depredations peaked, it was common knowledge their banditry was just another form of political intimidation.Anyhow, the attacks on homes over the last few years by criminals have become increasingly prevalent – and notwithstanding the Police playing with statistics, the populace is getting very restive, that it might be KDTD reincarnated. Yesterday’s shootout – where luckily five KDTD bandits were killed by the Police – will only exacerbate those fears. In other jurisdictions, criminals who break into homes to steal – “burglars” – are characteristically non-violent. They don’t walk around with weapons.At the Presser by the Acting CoP, he spoke very knowingly about the rap sheets of the bandits…and it appeared his whole performance was designed to burnish the image of the GPF. Nothing wrong about that: credit should be given when it’s due. But something is definitely amiss with our justice system when such KNOWN miscreants are allowed to roam our streets with impunity.If these fellas had been let off from their previous charges…wouldn’t they have to regularly check in with “parole officers” – or our equivalent? Or is it we don’t have such a system in place? This would be tragic, since – not only in Guyana but everywhere – most crimes are committed by members of a small, tightknit criminal community. The Police must have a system to keep tabs on them – whether through parole officers or paid snitches – intelligence!Anyhow, with all this talk of Guyana becoming an “oil rich” country, that criminal fraternity will ratchet up its violent efforts.Where’s that Security Plan, Minister Ramjattan?  Folks may start speculation of official involvement!! Again!!…of unsustainable debt?Contrary to its protestations – and its embarrassment over that NYT report! – the PNC-led coalition’s doing everything to ensure we contract that much-dreaded “Dutch Disease”! They’ve already destroyed the agriculture and forestry sectors – through the rank politicisation of policies to spite the PPP’s base. As in the 1970s, they’re throwing money into the hands of their supporters to empower them in those sectors. Seems they never learn, it ain’t that easy!!Another ominous sign is the inexorable rise in the Public Debt…just as under the PNC in the 1970s. By the time the PPP took office in 1992, we had US$2.1 billion in debt – and were officially a HIGHLY INDEBTED POOR COUNTRY (HIPC). Bharrat Jagdeo had to pull off a miracle to free us from THAT albatross!!  In the seventies, Burnham got us into trouble by counting on sugar prices remaining high – and never anticipated the oil price rise.Right now, Granger’s PNC’s betting that oil prices will remain high – to pay off the rising debts?But why gamble with our future?…of an Amerindian PartyLennox Schuman assures us his announced new political party’s on stream. But your Eyewitness is disappointed he took time to stress it will be “broad-based”.Why can’t a party of Indigenous Peoples be national? read more

Review Nokia Lumia 900 for ATT

dhzdsuhvl

first_imgIt’s been a little while since I’ve taken Windows Phone for a spin. In fact, the last time Windows Phone and I were hanging out it was before the big Mango update. I had spent some serious with T-Mobile’s HTC HD7 and, overall, found the operating system to be fairly limited and without much in the way of developer support. Much has happened to the ecosystem since then, including the Mango update and the partnership with Nokia.Regardless of your thoughts on Microsoft or Nokia, we have two companies that were effectively pushed out of the mobile game by iOS and Android, working together to make a phone to try and win back some users. Their offering is called the Lumia 900 on AT&T’s 4G LTE network, and it’s a pretty big deal.Sweet, sweet hardwareNokia has always had hardware that stands out. Even back in the day when Nokia was cranking out 2G phones, you could spot them from a mile away. There’s no doubt in my mind that the Lumia 900 will differentiate itself from the crowd — in a sea of nearly identical slabs, this phone truly stands out. The polycarbonate monobody casing, available in both blue and black, create a surface that is just textured enough to allow your fingers to grip it, without adding a visual pattern to the finish. There’s no removable battery, making the casing a solid, seamless piece.Nokia’s ClearBlack glass lays on top of the body, almost like the polycarbonate shell is a removable case for the phone. The device is flat on the top and bottom, though the weight on the phone is ever so slightly imbalanced (due to the placement of the screen) so it doesn’t always want to stand up on its own.In a world of 720p screens and Retina displays, the Lumia 900 looks under-qualified to hang out with the big names in the smartphone world. The 4.3-inch 800×480 resolution on the Lumia seems like something we would have seen on phones over a year ago, and is sure to give smartphone power users reason to question the specs of the device. Despite the resolution, everything on this screen looks incredibly crisp and clear. The Windows Phone UI, with its basic colors and sharp shapes across a flat black background looks great. More than that, websites and text render very clearly. This display, underneath Nokia’s ClearBlack glass also shows up much better in direct sunlight than the Super AMOLED Plus display on the Samsung Galaxy Note or that on the iPhone 4S. The phone has an 8MP camera (with Carl Zeiss optics) in the back and a 1MP front facing cameraThe Lumia 900 is a 1.4Ghz single core processor phone with 512MB of RAM. In no way does this phone feel even remotely sluggish, no matter what I did to try and slow the phone down. The device performed exactly the same way no matter what, which is truly a testament to how Windows Phone is able to handle this hardware.The Lumia 900 has an 1830mAh battery inside, which is more than capable of keeping it alive for over a day on 3G. It’s not shocking that, compared to a dual-core phone with 1GB of RAM and a 720p display, you get better battery life. When connected to AT&T’s 4G LTE, the Lumia 900 will give you much closer to 14 hours of battery life. Compared to other 4G LTE devices the Lumia 900 gets great battery life, with the exception being the over-sized Galaxy Note.For more about the specifications, check out our comparison of the Lumia 900, the iPhone 4S, and the Galaxy Nexus.Mango is a huge improvement, but still fairly limitedIn the smartphone market, Microsoft’s Windows Phone is in a distant third place. The biggest downside to having a device in distant third is that, no matter how amazing the hardware is, there’s still not nearly as many apps for Windows Phone as there are for iOS and Android. Common apps like Dropbox are nowhere to be found, and the third party apps that try to offer access to the online storage locker don’t even come close. For users moving from Android, there’s no Google Apps, and for users moving from iOS, most of the popular apps you are used to are nowhere to be found. If you’re not bound to any particular set of services, moving to Windows Phone would be great, but I think those users are few and far between.My favorite parts of Windows Phone — the integration with Microsoft’s other services — are still around, which is great. The Xbox Live app, SkyDrive integration, and the Microsoft Office access are each really great tools that you can’t get anywhere else. For any user who is already enjoying these Microsoft products, the phone is a really pleasant way to complete that experience.The Mango update to Windows Phone brought a huge cache of new features, things like turn-by-turn navigation, multitasking, and more developer support for the LiveTile UI. These were, for the most part, a huge improvement to the Windows Phone user experience. Unfortunately, there’s more than a few things that still make using WP7 a little awkward.The LiveTiles, for example, are one of the cleanest, most polished looking experiences I have ever had on a smartphone. That is, right until you install a third party app. The experience allows you to set a specific color for the entire experience and change that at will. On top of the colors, your apps can display information on the tile like how many emails are unread. Developers have the ability to incorporate the LiveTile experience into their apps, but from what I could find many developers haven’t bothered. Even fairly major apps, like Twitter and Facebook, keep the color scheme to their own default colors and don’t change it in any way.Also, there’s this dedicated search button on the Lumia 900, next to the home and back buttons. When you press it, no matter where you press it, the button launches Bing Search. If you are in the email app, it doesn’t allow you to search through the mail for example. In fact, in most places, there’s a software search button that is to be used completely separate from the search button on the device. This is a new feature as a part of Windows Phone Mango, and a feature that I wish would get fixed because it’s a clunker.All told, however, if you’re not absolutely in love with a different mobile OS, Windows Phone is perfectly capable of delivering a quality experience.Easily the best phone for the priceThe most exciting part of the Nokia Lumia 900 is that it’s a great Windows Phone on AT&T’s crazy fast 4G LTE network. The L900 is the only Windows Phone to date with access to that network, and the only LTE non-Android phone on AT&T. The Lumia 900 is going to be joining the likes of the $299 Samsung Galaxy Note and the $49 Pantech Burst in the 4G LTE world, but it’s coming in at $99 on a two-year agreement. For the price, the Nokia Lumia 900 is absolutely the best phone on AT&T’s 4G LTE network, and a huge boost to the Windows Phone lineup.Nokia Lumia 900 – side standingNokia Lumia 900 – side standingNokia Lumia 900 – sideNokia Lumia 900 – iphoneNokia Lumia 900 – home stackNokia Lumia 900 – home sideNokia Lumia 900 – homeNokia Lumia 900 – frontNokia Lumia 900 – backThe Lumia 900 was loaned to us from AT&T/Nokia.last_img read more

ExSDOE chief rebuffs claims he ignored orders to probe Lagarde list

dhzdsuhvl

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A former head of the Financial Crimes Unit (SDOE), Yiannis Kapeleris, has told prosecutors that Finance Minister Giorgos Papaconstantinou never asked him to carry out a detailed investigation into a list of some 2,000 names of Greeks with Swiss bank accounts given to the latter by his French counterpart at the time, Christine Lagarde, in 2010.In supplementary testimony on Tuesday to prosecutors probing the political handling of the so-called “Lagarde list,” Kapeleris reportedly claimed to have checked out 10 names from the list as requested by Papaconstantinou and to have told the then minister that their income did not justify the deposits in their Swiss accounts but claimed that he was not ordered to investigate those names, or any of the others on the list, any further. “I never received any orders from Mr Papaconstantinou for further investigation. And I never received an official document from the Finance Ministry ordering my agency to carry out a detailed investigation into those 10 cases,” Kapeleris was quoted as saying. The testimony by the former SDOE chief contrasts with claims by Papaconstantinou, published in the Guardian, according to which Greek authorities failed to act on the list because they were afraid of confronting elite tax evaders. In a related development, Parliament’s transparency committee narrowly voted against calling former Prime Minister George Papandreou to testify in connection with the probe into the handling of the Lagarde list. The vote was held after an MP of leftist opposition SYRIZA, Zoe Constantopoulou, claimed that Papandreou had been aware of the existence of the list. Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

Athens Mayor concerned over migrant infux

dhzdsuhvl

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Authorities were scrambling Thursday to accommodate thousands of migrants who have arrived in the capital over the past two days from the Aegean islands and from a camp near the border with the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) that police dismantled on Wednesday. Meanwhile fears have been growing that thousands of migrants will remain trapped in Greece as neighboring countries tighten their borders.Many of the migrants relocated from the FYROM border to a series of temporary reception facilities in the broader Athens area did not stay at the centers for long.In Patra and Igoumenitsa, both gateways to Western Europe via Italy, authorities fear a new influx of migrants following the crackdown at the FYROM border. Police are planning to increase road patrols in western Greece to monitor the situation.In Athens meanwhile authorities are not adequately prepared for the new arrivals, Migration Minister Yiannis Mouzalas said Thursday. The former Olympic Tae Kwon Do Center in Palaio Faliro, one of three temporary facilities being used to accommodate migrants, is only available until December 17, when a sporting event is scheduled to begin.“I don’t know where the migrants will go from here,” Mouzalas told reporters at the venue in Palaio Faliro, referring to some 1,200 people staying there. “You’ll find out when it happens.”Local authorities in Palaio Faliro, Elliniko and other adjacent municipalities have complained to Mouzalas about the situation.Athens Mayor Giorgos Kaminis also expressed concern Thursday during a meeting with President Prokopis Pavlopoulos. “I won’t allow a repeat of the events of 2012 and 2013 when people without the basic living means were wandering through Athens, creating problems with the city’s operation,” Kaminis said.There is also continued pressure from abroad on Greece to improve its response to Europe’s migration crisis. The European Commission Thursday started legal action against Greece, Italy and Croatia for failing to correctly register migrants.Tens of thousands of migrants have arrived in those countries over the last few months but less than half of them have been registered by authorities, an EC spokesperson said. Greece has only fingerprinted around 121,000 of the 492,000 people who arrived on its territory between July 20 and November 30, the spokesperson added. She said the Commission warned the three countries about the shortfalls two months ago but that the “concerns have not been effectively addressed.”A total of 769,000 migrants have arrived in Greece since the beginning of this year, according to figures from the United Nations refugee agency (UNHCR) that were made public Thursday. Another 4,000 migrants arrived at the port of Piraeus from the Aegean islands Thursday.Meanwhile coast guard officials said Thursday that the death toll from the sinking of a vessel of Farmakonisi on Wednesday had increased to 16, including seven children.Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Buckey Does An Amazing Job Wherever She Dedicates

dhzdsuhvl

first_imgDear Editor,This letter is in strong support of Erin Buckley for State Representative in the 19th Middlesex!I’ve known Erin for nearly a decade. Together with her husband, we were some of the very first people to both maintain and grow the Tewksbury Hospital Trail System as a destination for dog walkers, mountain bikers, and hikers. She has always been a passionate woman when it comes to being involved in her community. I am never surprised by the amazing job she does wherever she dedicates her time, be it in the State House as a Legislative Aide or her work for the Republican party in the 2016 election cycle. I can recall seeing her holding signs in Tewksbury, as well as surrounding towns, somehow finding time to go above and beyond in her job with the MassGOP and still volunteer in numerous positions and for numerous causes.Erin finds the time. But not everyone does. We have an opposing candidate in the Republican primary whose empty excuse for only having voted once in her life was that she was too busy building her career. Well, Erin was busy building her community at that same time! During that candidate’s massive voting gap, Erin found the time to work, graduate from university with the highest honors, be accepted to the most sought-after internship in Governor Baker’s Office, and then dedicate herself, full-time, to her community and the political causes she values so highly.There is no excuse for a lack of participation, especially from someone pretending to an elected seat. Erin Buckley will continue to dedicate herself to both Tewksbury and Wilmington — and we will better better off for it! Come September 4th, vote Erin Buckley for State Representative!Steve BagleyTewksbury, MA(Correction: Wilmington Apple accidentally excluded the the writer’s name, which has been updated.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Reliance Jio starts phone production in India after facing supply issues in

first_imgA woman checks her mobile phone as she walks past a mobile store of Reliance Industries’ Jio telecoms unit, in Mumbai, India, July 11, 2017.REUTERS/Shailesh AndradeReliance Jio Infocomm has shifted the production its 4th generation (4G) phone to India from China due to supply related glitches at the Chinese facility.Currently, the Mukesh Ambani-owned firm has entrusted an unknown Chennai-based company to produce its flagship phone, a move to overcome the production capacity issues in its previous Chinese unit, reported Mint.”In the second phase, we have received expressions of interest for 10 million devices and have already started manufacturing in Chennai,” one of the Reliance Jio officials told the business daily.Another official aware of Jio’s plans said the capacity constraints at the Chinese vendor’s facility resulted in missing firm’s sales target, hence the company decided to shift the production facility.”The manufacturing capacity in China is 300,000-400,000 devices per day maximum. The fulfilment team responsible to get the devices manufactured has not been able to deliver. The target to achieve sales of 200 million phones by December 2018 seems unlikely,” the official told Mint.Earlier in July, Mukesh Ambani, the chairman of Reliance Industries, parent company of Reliance Jio Infocomm, had stated that the production of Jio phones in India would start by the last quarter of the ongoing fiscal. Reliance Jio LYF 4G VoLTE phone leaked in live images ahead of launchTechPPWith free-for-life call service and dirt cheap data through new fourth-generation wireless service, Reliance Jio has sparked a price war and consolidation in the Indian telecom industry since its entry last year.Currently, Jio has over 145.96 million users as the company continues to gain market share, putting older players such as Airtel, Vodafone and Idea under much stress to retain their business. While launching the phone this year, Ambani said the company was “targeting to have 5 million Jio phones available every week.” Also the company set a target of 400 million subscribers by the end of 2018.”The company believes handset sales would boost its subscriber base on the back of various features, but most importantly, video calling,” one of the sources said.According to media reports, the Reliance Industries is also planning to come up with an initial public offering (IPO) for Reliance Jio Infocomm.

Checklist for skin care this winter

dhzdsuhvl

first_imgIn winters, cold weather and low humidity levels results in dry air which then steals moisture away from the skin every second of every day. Without immediate care, dry skin can lead to cracking, bleeding and patchy skin. Indoor heat further robs the air of moisture, as do hot showers or baths and harsh cleansers.Megha Shah, cosmetologist, Nirmal Randhawa, make up artist at Indica Makeover Studio have shared a few skin care tips that can be followed during winter season: Also Read – Add new books to your shelf1. Wash in lukewarm water – Hot showers and baths always feel good in the winter, but when you can, particularly when just washing your face and hands; choose lukewarm water to avoid stripping as many oils away from the skin. 4 Moisturize Immediately afterwards – Skin needs lots of moisturizing in winters. . Few drops of essential oil in water while bathing will help moisturize the skin. Applying moisture to damp skin help seal the dampness in the skin. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveIn winters, the skin becomes dry very quickly. So giving an overnight moisturizing therapy to skin, before going to sleep is a very good idea.If you want to get a glowing skin quickly, try using ice and moisturizer.  Put few drops of moisturizer or malai on an ice cube. Massage your face with this cube for 2-5 minutes.2. Water consumption – All of us tend to drink less water in winter because we turn to hot drinks like tea and coffee, but we often forget our skin needs hydration from inside, out. A little warm water with lemon can be very refreshing and hydrating at the same time.  3. Change the cleanser – Cleansers can prove to be extremely drying to the skin. After using a cleanser, never leave the skin naked for more than 30 seconds, as this can dehydrate it, leading to increased dryness. Apply a hydrating toner and moisturizer to seal in the moisture.4. Use of homemade masks – Homemade hydrating masks can provide needed moisture in the winter months. Use natural moisturizing ingredients like honey, avocado, yogurt, olives, bananas for glowing skin rather than going for chemicals and toxins. 5. Cool breeze may deprive your skin of the essential moisture that keeps it soft. Apply and then reapply the moisturiser. But make sure that it is not too heavy for your skin. Otherwise, it will make your skin look oily and dark. A gel-to-cream base moisturiser would be ideal for any skin type.6. Have a nutritionally rich diet or food items rich in Omega 3 for a glowing skin. Nuts and seasonal vegetables are great for your skin. Avoid starchy and sugary foods as they may cause bloating and acne.7. Since your skin is already dry during winter season, excessive exfoliation will wash off all the natural oils from the skin and can damage it badly causing redness. Use gentle exfoliators like oatmeal and coffee powder, and seal it with a cream.’last_img read more

US Next Generation Diabetes Therapy and Drug Delivery Market Sees Promising

dhzdsuhvl

first_imgU.S. Next Generation Diabetes Therapy and Drug Delivery Market generated $446 million in 2015 and is anticipated to garner $6,510 Million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 33.0% during the forecast period, 2017-2023.Get Sample Copy of Report @ https://www.alliedmarketresearch.com/request-sample/4621?utm_source=Hitechnews&utm_medium=NiranjanIncrease in prevalence of diabetes, surge in disposable income, rise in healthcare expenditure, and the advantages of adopting next generation diabetes products over conventional ones drive the growth of the U.S. next generation diabetes therapy and drug delivery market. Additionally, developing products with fewer side effects at affordable prices and the high undiagnosed diabetes patient population provide lucrative opportunities to emerging market players. However, high cost and less variability of products along with a lack of awareness hamper market growth.The report segments the U.S. next generation diabetes therapy and drug delivery market by product type, demographic, indication, and end user. Based on product type, the market is fragmented into inhalable insulin, oral insulin, insulin patch, CGM system, and artificial pancreas. The CGM system segment generated the highest revenue in 2016, owing to the high adoption rate of CGM devices as a large number of them are FDA approved. Based on demographic, the report bifurcates the market into adult population (>14 years) and child population (<14 years). The adult population segment dominated the market in 2016 and is expected to grow at a significant rate in the future, as almost 90% of the diabetic population in U.S. are above the age of 18 years.The market is further bifurcated into type I and type II diabetes based on indication, with the type II diabetes segment expected to grow at the fastest rate, registering a CAGR of 33.1% during the forecast period.

Worlds first discovery about early use of Stone Age tools made in

dhzdsuhvl

first_imgThe research team from UVic and partner universities in the U.S. and Jordan has found the oldest evidence of protein residue- the residual remains of butchered animals including horse, rhinoceros, wild cattle and duck on stone tools. The discovery draws startling conclusions about how these early humans subsisted in a very demanding habitat, thousands of years before Homo sapiens first evolved in Africa.New research published in the Journal of Archaeological Science by a team led by paleoanthropologist April Nowell of the University of Victoria reveals surprisingly sophisticated adaptations by early humans living 250,000 years ago in a former oasis near Azraq, Jordan.A team from the University of Victoria, working with researchers in Jordan and the U.S. unearthed 10,000 stone tools during a three-year excavation in the deserts northwest of the town of Azraq. The team closely examined 7000 of these tools, including scrapers, flakes, projectile points and hand axes (commonly known as the ‘Swiss army knife’ of the Paleolithic period), with 44 subsequently selected as candidates for testing. Of this sample, 17 tools tested positive for protein residue, i.e. blood and other animal products.“Researchers have known for decades about carnivorous behaviours by tool-making hominins dating back 2.5 million years, but now, for the first time, we have direct evidence of exploitation by our Stone Age ancestors of specific animals for subsistence,” said Nowell.last_img read more

first_imgIn his sophomore campaign, Peterson fumbled/muffed seven kicks and lost possession on three separate occasions. To add insult to injury, he also failed to reach the end zone and finished with a disappointing 8.4 yards per return average.Although Jones didn’t imply that Peterson’s role would change because of the coaching change, he did say the former No. 5 overall pick will have to adhere to a new set of guidelines.“He’s an offensive guy on defense, but I’m just glad coach (Bruce Arians) told me I can use him,” Jones said. “He’s going to have parameters, they all will have parameters. Absolutely. You put your toes on the yard line that we decide and you make decisions.”When pressed by Arizona Sports 620’s Doug & Wolf Friday as to what those parameters will be, Jones didn’t go into great detail.“Well I think goes back to not just Patrick, I don’t want to pick on a guy that’s a great player,” said Jones. “Because I’m excited to working with him. I think the biggest thing is learning the situational stuff coach Arians is going to teach this whole entire football team.“One, it’s a team game. Two, even if you have a lot of great talent, you have to know and play the situations.” Your browser does not support the audio element. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Jones did say the onus lies with him and the rest of the staff to coach Peterson up in that department.“I think you have to play situational football and put him in that in practice,” said Jones. “You have to make him understand that every ball can’t be a home run and every ball won’t be a home run. “So, particularly when you’re playing back there as we were in Pittsburgh with a starter, you have to protect the football.”Jones previously worked for the Steelers (2007-2012) as the team’s assistant special teams coach. However after he took over as the special teams coordinator in 2012, punt returner Antonio Brown actually saw his numbers go down (tied for 26th in average with 6.8 yards per return). The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Comments   Share   LISTEN: Amos Jones, Arizona Cardinals special teams coordinator Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact During his introductory press conference Friday, new Arizona Cardinals special teams coordinator Amos Jones gushed over the opportunity to work with punt returner Patrick Peterson. And why wouldn’t he be excited?As a rookie, Peterson took the NFL by storm tying a league-record for most punt return touchdowns (4) in a season. Not to mention, all four went for 80 yards or longer.Yet while Peterson dazzled fans in 2011 with his unique approach in the return game, which among other things included catching punts inside the five-yard line, 2012 wasn’t so kind to the former LSU standout.last_img read more
