Walmart is helping customers get rid of leftover opioids by giving them packets that turn the addictive painkillers into a useless gel.The retail giant said Wednesday that it will provide the packets free with opioid prescriptions filled at its 4,700 U.S. pharmacies.The small packets, made by DisposeRx, contain a powder that is poured into prescription bottles. When mixed with warm water, the powder turns the pills into a biodegradable gel that can be thrown in the trash.The move by Walmart is the latest precaution being taken to cut down on opioid abuse. Around 4 million Americans are addicted to prescription painkillers, according to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. The agency says these drugs are often obtained from friends and family who leave them in home medicine cabinets.Research has shown that surgery patients often end up with leftover opioid painkillers and store them improperly at home. Authorities say opioid painkillers should be kept in their original packaging and locked inside a cabinet out of the reach of children.DisposeRx says its disposal packets also work on other prescription drugs and for pills, tablets, capsules, liquids or patches.Walmart says its pharmacy customers can request a free packet at any time. The company also will offer a packet every six months to patients with a regular opioid prescription.Painkiller maker Mallinckrodt PLC has a similar program. It said last fall that it has donated about 1.5 million drug disposal pouches across the country and will increase that total to 2 million early this year.Some drugstores chains like CVS and Walgreens also collect unused medications at many of their stores. People can also take leftovers to hospital pharmacies or police stations.Unused prescriptions also can be thrown in the trash. But the U.S Food and Drug Administration recommends mixing them first with something unpalatable like Kitty Litter or used coffee grounds and then sealing the mixture in a plastic bag.___This story has been corrected to show that the information about the types of drugs on which the packets can be used came from DisposeRx, not Walmart.

31 January 2010The top United Nations political official is set to kick off a four-nation visit to East Asia in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), according to a statement attributable to the spokesperson for the Secretary-General released today. The DPRK will be the first stop for Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs B. Lynn Pascoe on the tour, which will also take him to China, Japan and the Republic of Korea (ROK).Mr. Pascoe will visit the DPRK as a Special Envoy of the Secretary-General from 9 to 12 February, when he is expected to hold comprehensive talks on all issues of mutual interest and concern with senior national officials. He will also meet with the UN country team and members of the diplomatic corps, as well as visit several UN project sites. In September, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon met with DPRK Vice Foreign Minister Park Gil Yon at UN Headquarters in New York, where he discussed the country’s nuclear issue along with the humanitarian and human rights situation.
In a statement to the press, Council President Alfonso Valdivieso of Colombia said Security Council members had noted that, as in previous offensives such as Caxito, UNITA personnel had “deliberately targeted civilians” during the 10 August attack on a train near the town of Maria Teresa. They urged the international community to provide humanitarian assistance to the large number of Angolans who are fleeing the violence. Reiterating their call on the rebel group to engage seriously in the search for peace, members of the Council pledged their ongoing support for all existing sanctions against UNITA, which is led by Jonas Savimbi, pending the faction’s full implementation of its Lusaka Protocol obligations.”Members of the Council remain committed to a peaceful solution to the Angolan conflict on the basis of the Lusaka Protocol and relevant Security Council resolutions and urge that concrete steps be taken to advance such a solution,” the statement said. The Council members also reiterated their support for the preparations under way for holding elections in 2002 in Angola and said that such actions by UNITA should not be allowed to stymie those efforts.

As reported in Nikkei Asian Review, Hitachi Construction Machinery has acquired two suppliers of parts and services for mining equipment with operations in the US and Australia, continuing its expansion into the support business amid sluggish demand in its mainstay machinery market.The Japanese company recently announced the purchase of all outstanding shares of H-E Parts International and H-E Parts Australian Holdings for $240 million from H-E Parts Investors. The acquisition, funded through cash on hand and loans, is Hitachi Construction’s second mining-related deal this year after a recent agreement to buy Australian manufacturer Bradken.The H-E Parts companies offer repair, maintenance and other aftermarket support for mining equipment such as dump trucks and hydraulic excavators. They operate mainly in the Americas and Australia, markets where Hitachi Construction, which is strongest in Asia and Africa, is racing to build a customer base.“Going forward, the resource sector will need to find ways to improve safety and productivity,” said Hitachi Construction President Yuichi Tsujimoto. The company plans to complete its acquisition of Bradken in February, broadening its lineup of parts such as teeth for excavator buckets.Hitachi Construction is also putting the “internet of things” to work to boost on-site productivity, using technology gained through its 2009 purchase of Canadian system developer Wenco International Mining Systems. With the H-E Parts deal, the Japanese company aims to increase points of contact with customers.
All the major consoles have motion controllers now, but all three companies (Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft) took different approaches to solve the same problem. The end results were the Wii Remote, the PS Move, and Kinect.It looks like the same might end up being true of biometric input for games. So far Nintendo is the only company to have gone public by showing off the Vitality Sensor ahead of a launch that now seems never destined to happen. Sony also has a biometric sensor in the works for its hardware, but it is taking the approach of enhancing gameplay in multiple ways rather than just offering to check your pulse.A patent has been discovered for a new Sony biometric control system that would monitor three aspects of a player’s state. These include:Skin moistureHeart rateMuscle movementBy combining those three measurements, and changes within each, Sony aims to use the results to affect gameplay somehow. Examples given are all based on a player’s level of stress and could see you health bar deplete quicker if you are more stressed, your weapons could be more difficult to aim, you get an adrenaline boost for your character, or the overall look of a game and the music being played changes to suit.In order to capture this biometric data Sony outlines plans to add the appropriate sensors to a DualShock controller, the PlayStation Move motion stick, and even a handheld device like the PS Vita.As with all patents, just because they have been filed doesn’t mean they will be used in real products. Also, with PS Vita out soon and no mention of biometric sensors being made, it looks like the first hardware to use biometric data has to be the PlayStation 4. That’s assuming Sony ever intend to implement them.Read more at Siliconera
Monday 25 Jun 2018, 5:12 PM By Michelle Hennessy TWO MINISTERS HAVE said they want to ensure greater enforcement of regulations around cycle lanes in Dublin City.At the weekend, Minister Charlie Flanagan, in response to an image of a car parked in a cycle lane on Camden Street, said it was “unacceptable”.Today he told reporters laws around the misuse of cycle lanes need to be enforced and he has spoken to garda management to ensure a better level of enforcement.He said he has been in contact with Minister for Transport Shane Ross and Minister for Planning and Local Government Eoghan Murphy and that he intends to convene a meeting between these departments and other relevant stakeholders.“We have regulation – I believe that it’s light touch regulation – and that’s why I am in contact with my ministerial colleagues. I’m very keen to ensure Dublin City is a safe place for cyclists. Unfortunately, I cannot say that at the moment,” he said.Transport Minister Shane Ross also said he was worried about enforcement.“It is absolutely imperative that cyclists are put at the top of the list, the top queue in priority at the moment,” he said.“If people are blocking up cycleways, yes, they’re going to have to be pursued with a great deal more rigour.” 13,127 Views Image: Shutterstock Share322 Tweet Email1 https://jrnl.ie/4090878 ‘I can’t say Dublin’s safe for cyclists’: Ministers want crackdown on drivers parking in cycle lanes Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan said current regulation around cycle lanes was “light touch”.

Indian detectives arrested a madrasa teacher on Saturday on charges of producing fake mark sheets and birth certificates and using them to apply for Indian passports and Aadhaar and PAN cards, reports Times of India.Faizul Iah (28), who is said to be a Bangladeshi from Dhanmondi in Dhaka, was arrested from Duttapukur in North 24 Parganas, the English-language Indian daily adds.”He will be in police remand for eight days. We have taken him for a raid at his residence in Duttapukur. Two Bangladeshi passports (with expired visa), two Indian school-leaving certificates and some documents have been recovered from him. He used his father-in-law and mother-in-law’s names in place of his parents’ to get an Indian certificate,” said Rajesh Kumar, ADG (CID).Faizul has reportedly been frequenting madrasas in Nadia, Murshidabad and Assam, where he taught religious verses. He also applied for a visa to the Middle East despite expiry of his Bangladeshi passport. “He has been trying to get an Indian passport for two months using fraudulent means. And that is when he came under CID’s lens,” said a senior officer.”He had visited at least four madrasas in Mumbai from where he brought back a few students to Duttapukur. We suspect he has links with another Bangladeshi national, who was picked up from Burdwan recently,” said an investigating officer.Besides the Foreigners Act, Faizul has been charged with forgery and criminal conspiracy. “His links with Bangladeshi terror modules are also being ascertained,” said a top CID official.”Issuing Aadhaar cards without a licence from the authority concerned is a serious offence. It is related to national security as people from subcontinental countries look similar to Indians and hunt for locations to obtain local identifications,” said a CID official.
A huge blast which struck near Damascus airport early on Thursday was caused by Israeli missiles hitting a “military position”, Syria’s state SANA news agency reported.”A military position southwest of Damascus International Airport was targeted at dawn today by an Israeli aggression using several missiles fired from occupied territory, sparking explosions in the area,” SANA said, citing a military source.In the terminology of the Syrian regime, occupied territory can refer to Israel inside its internationally recognised borders.
The Grand Theft Auto series of games have made both Rockstar and publisher Take-Two a lot of money. But before they became a huge console success story, the original game was developed at DMA Design where it nearly never got a release.Gary Penn, who worked on the original top-down 2D title while at DMA, has admitted in an interview with Gamasutra that the game was very close to being canceled. He said:[The original GTA] was a real mess for years, it never moved on, it never went anywhere. It never really felt like it was going anywhere. It was almost canned. The publisher, BMG Interactive, wanted to can it, as it didn’t seem to be going anywhere.There are probably two key things it fell down on. Two critical things. One of them is stability, which is a really boring one but it crashed all the fucking time. So even if you did get something in the game, you couldn’t really test it.Now the other thing that was a problem was the handling — the car handling was appalling … The core of playing was fundamentally broken. But just as bugs nearly killed the game, it was another that saved it. Apparently the Police AI messed up and became really aggressive trying to ram you off the road at one point. The team loved it, the aggressive cops stayed in the game which eventually got released, and the rest is history.If it had gone the other way, that would mean the more recent GTA III onwards games may never have been made, or at least not be the same games we all remember playing.What would gamers have spent millions on buying instead of GTA sequels I wonder?Read more at Gamasutra
The term “minority” is usually associated with certain disadvantages that accrue to a group by virtue of its status. Designating a group as “minority” is often based on the numeric count of a specific identity like religion, caste, or language. This numeric measure often ignores space and context entirely while interpreting minority as a disadvantage. The extent, to which the notion of being in a minority is associated with disadvantage and deprivation, needs to be re-examined. One must look beyond the numeric to the term’s operationalisation in a functional and social space. Each individual could belong to a minority according to some specific identity. However, the use of numeric count alone can be a misnomer. For example on a construction site with 15 unskilled workers and 2 skilled masons, the latter are considered a minority by virtue of numbers. But by virtue of power over workers and skills, they cannot be thought of as a “minority group”. Also Read – Gateway of criminal justice The popular identity of a minority defined in a social space, according to identities like religion and caste perhaps remains relevant, only when these identities remains primary to the individual. In today’s globalised world, one can hope for a gradual erosion of these primary identities. Suffice to say, these identities can be replaced with professional, regional, as well as functional identities. With information and communication holding the key to social status, linguistic identities, especially the ability to speak in English, is gaining prominence. That renders the non-English speaking group a minority in certain areas of functioning. The conventional minority status is perhaps posing a lesser threat compared to the newly emerging minority identities in the form of linguistic and/or domiciliary attributes. This can be easily seen in the varying demands for statehood in India within a region primarily identified by their linguistic identity alone. Hence, minority identity in the functional space needs to be separated from that of social space for many reasons. Such a scenario can be best explained when one considers a highly educated professional in an urban space. If this professional is domiciled in a place where he/she does not have any linguistic affiliation, the person may not be a minority in the professional space, but will be a minority in his social space. Moreover, alterations in the primary identities and minority status can be achieved given the propensity for mobility in today’s global world. Therefore, a primary identity need not be considered as an ascribed quality that would remain unaltered. Also Read – Turning a blind eyeIf minority associated vulnerability is a real concern, then the term needs to be widened beyond social identities. It is important to recognise that the primary identity alone does not assert one’s minority status. An individual’s identity evolves over the course of their life and so does his/her minority status. The issue of deprivation/disadvantage is largely in the functional space where the identities that come into play may be different from the ascriptive ones. For example, a professional who is less than fully qualified may resist efforts of retraining his/her caste identity or social power that accrues through networks that are strong. Thus, the consequent identity that a person acquires through this process of evolution over the course of their life may take them in a direction completely different from their primary identity. Moreover, such an evolutionary process may give rise to the adoption of ideological positions that overcome the stereotyping of primary identities. Thus, primary identities may change, both in the functional and in the social space over time. Given this complex mechanism of identities, there remain a lot of ambiguities in defining minorities in terms of the numeric, particularly in the social space. Deliberations on minority identity specific to context and circumstance are perhaps more relevant today given the new world of fanaticism emerging due to evolving identities. The identities that are replacing primary identities are the region, language and place of education, among others. With such identities occupying the centre stage, a call for a minority identity that challenges existing orders could emanate from any unknown corner. There is a reason to believe and be optimistic regarding the erosion of caste/class/religion identity with the immensity of opportunities opening up for various groups with mobility. This necessitates redefining the concept of “minority” if at all it remains a relevant means to identify vulnerabilities in the future. Such optimism is possible provided every individual evolves their identity such that it outweighs his/her primary identity, and strives for a privileged identity through this self-evolutionary process, rather than looking for gains from his/her minority status based purely on socially ascribed characteristics.

August 26, 2014 Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Just how safe is your company data? According to the IBM Cyber Security Intelligence Index, U.S. businesses experienced over 1.5 million monitored cyber attacks in 2013 alone. Sensitive information regarding your internal operations, your customers and your employees is at risk if your organization does not take proper measures to secure its data. Take a look at these eight crucial security reminders for business leaders to keep in mind.1. Password Character Requirements. There’s a reason why so many web-based consumer services require complex passwords. Unauthorized users are less likely to guess passwords when employees use a blend of phrases, upper and lower case letters, numbers, and punctuation. Work with your IT department to configure the password requirements for your employees.2. Password rotation. Passwords that go stagnant are a liability for companies. For example, former employees might still be able to gain access to confidential information after they leave the company, if teams use the same outdated group email. Schedule password rotations every few months so that every user must update accounts with new passwords.3. Session time out. This setting prevents a user’s account from remaining signed into a system after a certain period of time. For example, if a cashier leaves their point of sale terminal, their session should automatically expire after a delay so that no unauthorized users can attempt to operate the point of sale.4. No outside hardware. No employee should be allowed to use external hardware in the office, such as storage devices or other peripherals, unless cleared by your company’s IT department. External devices can contain spyware or viruses that pose a significant risk to your computers and network. Additionally, this restriction reduces the risk of employees stealing internal data.5. Installation restrictions. Employees should not be able to install unauthorized software on work computers or mobile devices, since unchecked installations can lead to malware infections. For example, a graphic designer might decide to download a freeware utility to complete a project. While they are well intentioned, this employee might accidentally install a trojan on their work computer.6. Managed mobile devices. Mobile device management (MDM) software allows you to enroll in-house and BYOD technology in a system that deploys security configuration settings, company data and content over the air. This is an excellent way to enforce remote security restrictions, such as password updates or app restrictions. Once an employee leaves a company, company-related data can be quickly wiped from their device remotely.7. Backup encryption. Copies of your company data can also be a weak point, if unauthorized users are able to view and edit these files. Work with your IT department to create redundant and encrypted backups of your business-critical data.8. Remote wipe. Mobile device solutions like Android Device Manager and iCloud allow you to remotely wipe device data if your smartphone or tablet is lost or stolen. This will quell your fears about confidential data leaks, in case you forget your phone at a restaurant. Many of these remote security systems also help you track and lock your devices, so that you can attempt to recover your technology before erasing it.Anyone from the newest intern to C-level executives can become a target of digital crime. Train your employees to observe data security best practices. Taking proactive measures will help your business stay ahead of threats. Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. 3 min read Register Now » Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Researchers said that periodic imaging and clinical exams are effective in these patients when radiology and pathology findings are benign and concordant, or in agreement.Atypical lobular hyperplasia (ALH) and lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) are abnormal breast lesions that occasionally appear as incidental findings in breast biopsies. Women with ALH or LCIS have a four to 10 times higher risk of developing breast cancer, according to Michael A. Cohen, M.D., FACR, professor of radiology at the Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta. As a result, it is often recommended that ALH and LCIS diagnosed on image-guided core biopsy be removed surgically. “Because of the possibility of upgrade to cancer, the bulk of the published literature says that the prudent thing to do is excise ALH and LCIS,” Cohen said.But new research from Cohen, Kristen Atkins, M.D., and colleagues may alter that thinking. Atkins is a pathologist and associate professor at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. At one time, Cohen and Atkins were colleagues there and had many discussions about balancing the risk of cancer in ALH and LCIS patients with the costs and potential complications of surgery.“From a pathology perspective, ALH and LCIS are often very tiny lesions, so we wondered why they were getting excised,” Atkins said. “These surgeries may involve general anesthesia and possible disfigurement.”The researchers studied 10 years of pathology and radiology data to look for a correlation between the number of ALH and LCIS cases that were upgraded to cancer after surgery or follow-up and the concordance between the radiologist and pathologist. The research yielded 50 cases from 49 women aged 40 to 73 years. Radiologist and pathologist findings were concordant in 43 of the 50 cases. None of the benign concordant cases were subsequently upgraded to cancer, strongly suggesting that observation in these patients would have been a viable alternative to surgery. Of the seven discordant cases, two were upgraded to ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) an early-stage, noninvasive form of breast cancer.Cohen repeated the study after moving to Emory and found the same results. “When there’s no discordance between the radiologist and pathologist after thorough radiology-pathology correlation, there’s no upgrade from ALH or LCIS to cancer in our study,” Cohen said. “These findings show that some women can avoid surgery, and that yearly mammograms along with MRI [magnetic resonance imaging] or ultrasound as second-line screening tools may suffice.”The researchers suggested their findings will help physicians and patients make informed decisions about ALH and LCIS.For more information: http://radiology.rsna.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content Feature | Artificial Intelligence | July 19, 2019 | Michal Chorev AI Models Predict Breast Cancer With Radiologist-level Accuracy Breast cancer is the global leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women, and the most commonly diagnosed cancer… read more Image courtesy of Imago Systems Technology | Breast Biopsy Systems | July 24, 2019 Fujifilm Releases Tomosynthesis Biopsy Option for Aspire Cristalle Mammography System Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A.
