COPY LINKAD Loading …center_img LinkedIn is the go-to place for your job searches with the ease of using it as a social networking app. Now, the Microsoft-owned job seeking platform is borrowing an idea from the world’s largest social networking app, Facebook, where users can easily respond to posts and updates with colourful emoji “Reactions.”LinkedIn Reactions were announced earlier this month by the company executive, Cissy Chen. In a blog post on April 11, Chen said users will be able to respond to posts in more than one way. LinkedIn allows users to easily share updates and posts on new job openings or general topics on the platform, but the only way to respond was to hit the “Like” button. To further engage with the post, users had to either comment share it. But it all changes now.LinkedIn’s Facebook-like emoji “Reactions” with a twist are finally available to users on the mobile app and soon it will hit the web. Users will now be able to like a post or choose to toggle between “Celebrate,” “Love,” “Insightful,” and “Curious.” LinkedIn new reactionsLinkedIn”You can use Celebrate to praise an accomplishment or milestone like landing a new job or speaking at an event, or Love to express deep resonance and support, like a conversation about work life balance or the impact of mentorship. Insightful can help you recognize a great point or interesting idea, while Curious lets you show your desire to learn more or react to a thought-provoking topic. As a poster, these new reactions can help you better understand the impact your posts are having,” Chen explained.Choosing the new reactions is quite simple and works just like the way emoji reactions work on Facebook. Users must simply hover over the Like button and the new set of reactions will be presented in a horizontal line. LinkedInREUTERS/Robert Galbraith/File PhotoLinkedIn said it did not choose the new reactions randomly, instead, a thoughtful approach was pursued before bringing the four new emoji reactions. The job-seeking platform studied what people are talking about to better understand and analysed the top 1-2 word comments and the type of posts that people share the most. LinkedIn also had to make sure the reactions were globally understood, which is why it conducted global research.last_img read more

Cancun businessmen say Maya Train consult idle meaningless

first_imgClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window) Cancun, Q.R. — Cancun businessmen say that the upcoming public consult including the Maya Train is idle and meaningless since the start up date has already been announced.Several in the Cancun business sector are saying that the so-called public consultation is idle and meaningless in the case of the Maya Train project since the consult is a yes or no vote, adding that a start up date for that project has already been announced.President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador has set the national public consult for November 24 and 25 when the country will be able to check yes or no for 10 upcoming key projects. However, local businessmen say the start date for the train has been announced for December 16.Sergio González Rubiera, president of the Mexican Association of Travel Agencies (AMAV) in Cancun said that any major infrastructure work is welcome as it fosters development and contributes to modernity and competitiveness while generating employment.Sergio Gonzlez Rubiera, presidente de la AMAVHowever, González Rubiera says that a query for the Maya Train seems idle and meaningless “If they are already announcing its launch, a consultation makes no sense.”Abelardo Vara Rivera, vice president of the Hotel Association of Cancun (AHC), agreed with González Rubiera that a consultation should not be made with the people, nor should the project be started if a highly professional study is not done beforehand due to the high expense.“It’s the money of the people, the one defended by president-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador,” adding that “The towns where you make stops must have first world-class infrastructure, security, hotels, hostels and a host of attractions for tourists.”He said that there are still very important issues at hand that remain without answers such as where the money will come from.“And now, in Quintana Roo, governments are very active creating and increasing taxes. Will it be to support that investment in a matter that is up to the state? The Maya Train must be auscultated with a magnifying glass because starting it just because it was a campaign promise can lead to a huge failure,” he noted.last_img read more

These cuts are in addition to the more than $1 billion in cuts for imaging and radiation therapy services put in place earlier in 2012.Further, MITA said that Congress’ refusal to address the 2.3 percent medical device tax as part of the fiscal cliff package will harm America’s global leadership in the development of innovative medical imaging technologies and is estimated to cost up to 43,000 medical technology jobs in the United States“When you add up all the Medicare cuts and Congress’ reluctance to address the $30 billion medical device tax, this legislation produces a devastating impact that harms patient access to care, moves manufacturing jobs overseas and threatens America’s leadership in medical research and development,” said Gail Rodriguez, MITA’s executive director.“We hope the administration and congressional leaders will take notice of the growing bipartisan opposition to the job-killing device tax and immediately repeal or delay it,” Rodriguez said. “Further, Congress should reverse Medicare cuts since the data clearly show that imaging use per beneficiary is on the decline. It is arbitrary and capricious for Congress to cut imaging and radiation therapy reimbursements without a full understanding of how those cuts negatively impact their constituents’ ability to receive imaging and radiation therapy that saves lives.”A MITA report released in October shows that imaging utilization per Medicare beneficiary declined by 5.12 percent since 2009 and spending on imaging services for each Medicare beneficiary has dropped 16.7 percent since 2006. That report was echoed in a policy brief from the Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute that shows medical imaging utilization and spending has declined since 2006, while the average length of hospital stays in the United States has increased.For more information: www.medicalimaging.org/category/mita-news FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Artificial Intelligence | August 05, 2019 Montefiore Nyack Hospital Uses Aidoc AI to Spot Urgent Conditions Faster Montefiore Nyack Hospital, an acute care hospital in Rockland County, N.Y., announced it is utilizing artificial… read more Video Player is loading.Pierre Qian explains radiotherapy to ablate VTPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 7:34Loaded: 2.19%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -7:34 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

TEMPE Ariz – The sample size is small yet almo

first_img TEMPE, Ariz. – The sample size is small, yet, almost a fifth of the way through the season, the Arizona Cardinals have not performed well when the ball is placed inside the 20-yard line, either on their side of the field or the opponent’s.Only three times in 11 red-zone trips have the Cardinals scored a touchdown, while their opponents — Detroit, Indianapolis and Dallas — have been successful punching the ball across the goal line seven times in eight chances. Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (11) stretches for yards as he is hit by Dallas Cowboys cornerback Jourdan Lewis during the first half of an NFL football game, Monday, Sept. 25, 2017, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) “Yeah, he was obviously a monster down there in the red zone because he caught a bunch of touchdowns, and he ran in a bunch of touchdowns,” Palmer said. “He’s one of those guys. He’s irreplaceable. No matter what team he’s on, if he gets injured, he’s irreplaceable. So, you go into the season with a ton of stuff built around him, and as soon as you lose him, you’ve got to change some things. Like I said, we’re still working on execution. We’re going to continue to do that as the season goes on with Dave.”Division games count twiceAmong the four NFC West teams, the Cardinals have yet to play a division game. That changes, of course, this Sunday when they host the San Francisco 49ers.Games within the division are always tough, according to defensive lineman Frostee Rucker.“There’s something about it. It’s almost like the teams are built to play verse each other, as for when you play outside your division you’re playing different teams and they’re built for a different style of play,” he said. “(The 49ers) are fighting and scratching to get a win and we want two wins.”Only the Los Angeles Rams (2-1) have a winning record in the NFC West. Both the Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks are 1-2, while the 49ers are winless. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “It’s kind of disappointing,” head coach Bruce Arians said Wednesday. “We’ve run, probably, too many RPOs (run-pass options) down there and didn’t execute them properly or didn’t make the catch or the throw, like the 4th-and-1 in Indianapolis. We’ve got to run the ball better, for sure.“Defensively, we’ve got to stop the run better, and it’s usually after a big play. We’ve got to play better defense after a big play that put us down there.”On Monday night, the Cowboys recorded touchdowns on all three of their trips inside the red zone; and all three scores followed big plays, as Arians referenced. A 13-yard pass and 20-yard run helped set up the first and second touchdowns, respectively, while a 53-yard completion came three plays prior to the third score, an Ezekiel Elliott touchdown to make it a two-score game, 28-17.Offensively against the Cowboys, the Cardinals made four trips inside the red zone and came away with but a single touchdown.“We just haven’t executed the way that we expect ourselves to execute,” quarterback Carson Palmer said.Making life more difficult for the Cardinals offense when they reach their opponent’s 20-yard line has been the absence of running back David Johnson. A year ago, Johnson, currently on injured reserve, scored 16 of his NFL-leading and franchise-record 20 touchdowns in the red zone. “I expect all those guys to be out in pads (Thursday),” Arians said.Guard Alex Boone (chest) did not practice, while dollar linebacker Deone Bucannon (ankle) was a full participant.For the 49ers, starting safety Eric Reid (knee) and rookie linebacker Reuben Foster (ankle) did not practice; neither did tackle Joe Staley, though his absence was not injury related. Also, linebacker Brock Coyle (concussion), running back Carlos Hyde (hip), fullback Kyle Juszczyk (concussion) and safety Jaquiski Tartt (concussion) were limited. Top Stories center_img 2 Comments   Share   The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “Their record does not matter,” Palmer said. “Every time we play San Francisco, they give us their best shot. They’ve always played really, really well against us—really, really hard against us. They’re playing hard on film, and this is a very good defense.“We’re in a difficult spot, coming off a loss on a short week with a team that’s got 10 or so days of rest. This is a huge game for us.”Elijhaa Penny impresses on scout teamOne option the Cardinals have not tried in the red zone, especially near the goal line, is running back Elijhaa Penny, who, at 6-2 and 234 pounds, may be able to overpower defenses because of his bigger size.Thus far, much of Penny’s playing time has come on special teams. He does have 10 offensive snaps but no carries. No carries, yet, at least.“He’s getting close to earning it,” Arians said. “He had a good preseason, but he’s still a little bit down the totem pole. If he got it, I’d have all the confidence in the world. The way he’s been (on the scout team)—Elliott, and then (Thursday) he’ll be (Carlos) Hyde—and he’s shown what he can do.”Injury reportThe list is a long one.Arians rattled off seven different names as being limited in practice on Wednesday: wide receiver John Brown (quadricep), tight end Jermaine Gresham (ribs), tackle D.J. Humphries (knee), guard Mike Iupati (tricep), linebacker Chandler Jones, wide receiver J.J. Nelson (bicep) and tackle John Wetzel.

UPDATED 11 JUNE 2014 If youve holidayed in plac

first_img(UPDATED 11 JUNE 2014)If you’ve holidayed in places around the Med or in SE Asia, you’ve probably seen ‘street cats’. Much as we’d like to give them all a home, alas, we can’t. What we can do is pay homage to them in these lovely pictures.1. Crimea, UkraineWhat a handsome chap. Until it hit the news this year, the Crimea was a destination known less by tourists than by history buffs. One such buff is ex-Stoke and Palace boss Tony Pulis, who revealed that he visited this much fought-over peninsula on the Black Sea as a result of his long-standing interest in its eventful history. Respect. 5. Amsterdam, NetherlandsTo see the contrasting fortunes of Amsterdam’s cats, donate a few Euros to De Poezenboot (the Cat Boat), dry your eyes, and meet some rather more pampered pusses at the Kattenkabinet – a feline shrine to a cat called John in a grand old canal house. Even better, you can stay there, in apartments above the museum – all cat-themed of course. A big shout out to Jaunted’s The Adventures of Travel Cat which was partially the inspiration for this feature. Cats often appear in the travels of the author, who nurtures an impractical dream of running a cat sanctuary in Corsica, but in reality struggles to cope with managing his own two cats, who fall out of trees, wake him up in the night, and really should just grow up a bit.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map 10. Ephesus, TurkeyAs we have already seen, ancient monuments and archaelogical sites are some of the best places to see feral cats. The remains of one of the Seven Wonders of the World offer effective itching posts for its residents. 11. Petra, JordanWhat were we saying about ancient monuments? Petra was used as a location for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and the slightly-less-famous film Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. Doing reasonable impressions of sand cats, these two match their surroundings perfectly. 2. Delphi, GreeceTo the Ancient Greeks at least, Delphi was the centre of the world. The place had a lot going for it: as well being situated on Mount Parnassus, home of a whole pantheon of gods, there was the Oracle, and the Eternal Flame, to which The Bangles’ epic 1989 number one of the same name was an ode. Or maybe not. 3. Houtong, TaiwanAs the residents of the once-booming mining town of Houtong moved out following the collapse of its mining industry, many of their cats were left abandoned. In 2008 a kindly cat lover initiated a scheme to care for the leftover moggies. Now Houtong is home to just a few hundred humans, and over 100 well looked-after cats, who have become a quite a tourist attraction. 4. Eilat, IsraelThe tourist resort of Eilat, on the Red Sea at the far south of Israel, is one of the world’s top scuba diving centres, and one of the world’s best places to see migrating birds, as they make their way south from Europe into Africa. It is also home to a large number of street cats, like this lot.center_img 9. Venice, ItalySome Venice strays are given homes in special cat huts at the San Lorenzo sanctuary in the Castello area of the city. Hopefully fish will be on the menu for this monochrome moggie on Burano, a nearby island in the Venetian Lagoon . 8. Ait Benhaddou, MoroccoOne of the must-stop sites on Morocco’s tourist circuit, the fortified city of Ait Benhaddou does get a bit busy with people snapping the set of Game of Thrones, Gladiator and The Man Who Would Be King, but a further attraction is its population of cats like this one.More: 29 amazing Game of Thrones locations: in pictures 7. Megishima, JapanPardon the generalisation, but the Japanese are known for their affection for cats, evidenced by the phenomenon of the cat café. Ideal for people who cannot keep cats themselves, and cat-loving tourists, you pay to spend an hour (or more) in the company of very well looked-after kitties while you’re sipping tea or working on that presentation. There are 39 of them in Tokyo alone. If Tokyo is too far, there’s Café des Chats in Paris.More: 9 of the world’s best cat cafés, from London to Japan 12.

In his complaint,S. and it has an endowment of $357 millionthe average private HBCU endowment is around $38 million In 2014 Spelman ranked number 65 on US News and World Reports annual list of the nations top liberal arts colleges the next highest ranked HBCUMorehouse Collegecomes in at number 126 But because Spelman is an HBCU its often mentioned in discussions about the overall fate of black institutions which face dire financial situations declining enrollment and questions about their relevance in the 21st century Tatum says the comparisons aren’t always fair "Just as we as individuals tend to be stereotyped lumped together as a group in the same way the institutions that are serving African Americans are lumped together and are stereotyped as a group We have to work very hard to penetrate that bias" Tatum tells TIME In an hour-long wide-ranging interview Tatum spoke about why we should not consider HBCUs as a monolith the problems with the Department of Educations plan to marry financial aid and graduation rates and whats next for her post-retirement The following interview has been condensed and edited for space Youre retiring in June of next year Why now In the life of a college president 12 what will be 13 years is a long time The average span of a college president is about 6 or 7 years Its a very demanding jobIm just ready for a new chapter But I think its also a great time to pass the baton If you think about being a president as like running a relay race you get the baton from one person and when you get it you run as fast as you can to make as much progress and then you have to pass it to somebody else I wanted to pass it while there was a lot of momentum Your 10-year fundraising campaign raised $1578 million with contributions from 71% of alumnae Forty-one percent of your alumnae give annually Can Spelman be a model for other small liberal arts colleges and other HBCUs specifically When I started in 2002 [annual giving] was about 13% I knew that the future of the college really depended on strong alumni support on an annual basis because when you go to foundations corporations and other donors outside the alumnae community one of the first questions theyll ask you is “what is the level of support from your graduates” If your graduates arent supporting you why should anybody else But I do know that its very labor intensive When you think about a donor who hasnt been regularly giving to the college and you call her on the phone or you meet with her in person the first gift she makes might be a small gift Maybe $25 $50 or $100 but its not necessarily going to be a big check And you spend a lot of time and energy just to get her to write that first check There are schools that will likely say its not worth my time to focus on that little gift I need to focus on those big gifts that are going to really help sustain me What we did which I think was really helpful was we got one of our trustees to essentially match the gifts that we got from small donors over a period of time so that we knew wed be able to build up the level of giving knowing that there was a safety net so to speak of this other donors match I think every school has a trustee who would if you ask them to help grow alumni giving by matching What does the future of Spelman look like I think the future of Spelman is bright Strong philanthropic support great students a wonderful tradition of excellence that Im sure will continue into the future But I think the next President will certainly need to be thinking a lot about the impact of technology in terms of this rapidly changing world we live in There are lots of conversations in higher education right now that any new president should be thinking about I often say when Im asked what the characteristics of that new president should beand obviously its the boards decision to choose but it should be someone who can be a really fast runner; someone who can take that baton and just go with it Whats next for you It has been tremendous honor to serve as the President of Spelman College Its been a high point of my career and Im looking forward to this coming year Before I became the President of Spelman I was a professor but I was also a writer I want to return to writing So my first project will be to work on my next book One of the books I want to revisit is "Why are all the black kids sitting together in the cafeteria" which was written in 1996 I want to reflect on the last 20 years and figure out what I will say differently but I dont know the answer to that question yet How has the overall college landscape changed during your time as the leader at Spelman I think the concern about cost and affordability has really gotten more intense How can we provide [an education] in a cost effective way so that students can afford to comewhether thats providing more financial aid or figuring out a way to offer it less expensively Because we know that everyone needs an education but a lot of todays students cant afford it And I think that that conversation has really gotten more significant for everyone not just at HBCUs in part because the vast majority of todays high school students are coming out of low to moderate income families and are often first generation college students Its not just an HBCU question Everybody has to figure out how do we make this more affordable I know thats something First Lady Michelle Obama has been focusing on increasing access to higher education particularly among African American students But at the same time the Obama Administration is working to distribute funding based on graduation rates which have long been a problem for HBCUs What do you make of that Theres an irony there When you are serving low-income students there are many barriers to their completion some of which have nothing to do with the school There are all kinds of circumstantial situations that make it hard for students to persist If you are providing services to students who are coming from high-risk backgrounds the odds of their completion are going to be lower One of the things we take great pride in at Spelman is our ability to graduate students at a high rate but even at Spelman we have found since the Great Recession its become more difficult for us to maintain that graduation rate More and more students are having to step out because of financial concern I think when the Department of Education says to an institution that were going to judge you by your graduation rate I hope that they will compare apples-to-apples If youre a well resourced institution serving a high-income student body that graduation rate better be high You have no reason for it not to be But if you are looking at the performance of schools that are serving the most underserved student population you should compare apples to apples to make sure that you are holding all of those variables constant Do you think that proposal will have an adverse impact on HBCUs in particular HBCUs have historically served those students who are most at-risk Every HBCU is different If youre a school that has more open enrollment more selective and students who are financially challenged you are hopefully going to transform their lives through the education you provide but your graduation rate is not going to be as high as someone who is dealing with a different socio-economic demographic Graduation rates of institutions serving high percentages of under-served students should be evaluated in relationship to predicted retention rates for low income first generation students In previous interviews you have said people often talk about HBCUs as if theyre monolithic as if theyre the same school Where do you think the disconnect is in understanding HBCUs and addressing issues that face them That really has to do with understanding African Americans in general Just as we as individuals tend to be stereotyped lumped together as a group in the same way the institutions that are serving African Americans are lumped together and are stereotyped as a group We have to work very hard to penetrate that bias You dont regularly read articles about predominately white institutions are in trouble You know what I mean You dont So why is that when an HBCU closes its doors because of a loss of enrollment or loss of accreditation we read articles in which all of us get mentioned That is I think just consistent with the stereotypes that have permeated our culture about people of color and the institutions of color What about the question of HBCUs relevancy Is that the same issue Its a very interesting question Why do people ask this question We know that the history of HBCUs is that they were created at a time when there was no opportunity because of segregation at a time when there was no educational access for African Americans When Spelman was founded in 1881 in the city of Atlanta there was no other opportunity for black women to get an education So people will say well now those majority institutions are available so why do we need those other institutions But that fails to acknowledge the other purposes of HBCUs An HBCU not only provides an educational opportunity for those who have been underserved but it does so in a context in which the culture from which they come the history that theyve experienced
