Mark Zuckerberg And Priscilla Chan Give 75 Million To San Francisco General

first_imgSan Francisco General Hospital Foundation (the Foundation) will receive an historic grant of $75 million from Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Dr. Priscilla Chan’s donor advised fund at the Silicon Valley Community Foundation for San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center (The General), the City’s largest safety net provider and only trauma center.This grant is the largest single gift the Foundation has received since it was established in 1994, and is believed to be the largest single private gift from individuals to a public hospital in the United States.This grant is the vital piece necessary to complete The General’s new acute care and trauma center. This grant will fund critical state-of-the-art equipment and technology for the new building and will help convert the existing hospital building into an ambulatory care facility. The new acute care and trauma center will open in December 2015. The grant builds on the earlier investment made by San Franciscans in 2008 when voters overwhelmingly approved an $887.4 million bond to begin the process of building a new facility.Additionally, the grant will enable the Foundation to provide ongoing support to The General and to the more than 100,000 patients it serves each year. It will also support the Foundation’s efforts to increase awareness for the key role The General plays in public health throughout the community.“As someone who has seen firsthand the quality of emergency care at San Francisco General, I can say that I am personally grateful for this $75 million grant from Mark and Priscilla – the largest gift to our City’s hospital ever,” said San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee. “This grant illustrates my call for 21st Century philanthropy and is a game changer for the rebuild of San Francisco General, leveraging more investment for state of the art technology to treat some of the most critically injured patients and deliver innovative high quality, compassionate patient care. San Francisco’s residents and visitors will benefit from this grant for generations because thousands of first responders and health care providers will have the 21st Century hospital they need to save lives around the clock. I know this gift will inspire others to support our General.”“Through my training at The General, I know firsthand the vital health care and trauma services this hospital provides to anyone who lives, works or travels through San Francisco,” said Dr. Priscilla Chan. “Day in and day out, I witness the compassion and dedication of my colleagues as they work tirelessly to deliver the best available care to all of our patients. Mark and I are proud to support such an important public hospital.”“Priscilla and I believe that everyone deserves access to high quality health care. The General serves anyone who lives, works in or visits San Francisco. We can think of no better place to focus our philanthropy in San Francisco than The General,” said Mark Zuckerberg. “The Bay Area is our home, we work here, we live here, and we want to invest in efforts that can make a difference in people’s lives here.”“We are profoundly grateful to Mark and Priscilla for their support and investment in The General and its future. We know that private philanthropy is increasingly important for public hospitals and public health and expect Mark and Priscilla’s leadership to inspire additional private support from the San Francisco community,” said Amanda Heier, CEO of the Foundation. “We look forward to continuing to work with them to support our hospital and community for generations to come.”“As the only trauma center in the City, The General saves lives every day, no matter who you are. The generous grant from Mark and Priscilla will help transform The General into a state-of-the-art hospital and trauma center and enable us to better serve our patients,” said Sue Currin, RN, MSN, CEO at The General. “Located in the Mission, The General also serves as a community hospital and a safety net to more than 100,000 patients annually. We provide high quality care with compassion and respect to all regardless of their ability to pay.”“I know personally that San Francisco General Hospital saves lives every day. It’s one of our most important institutions that serves San Franciscans of every community, regardless of income. I’m enormously grateful to Mark and Priscilla for this historic contribution to our community and I look forward to shepherding acceptance of this unprecedented gift to a public hospital through the Board of Supervisors.” London Breed, President of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.“We are profoundly grateful to Priscilla and Mark for this investment in the City’s health care system,” said David Sanchez, San Francisco Health Commissioner and member of the SFGH Foundation board. “As a trauma center, The General provides life-saving care to everyone in need, and as a community hospital it serves generations of families in the Mission, Bayview, Chinatown, and across the city.”The new hospital will include two additional trauma rooms and three more operating rooms. The new Emergency Department will double in size from the existing one and has the capacity to more than quadruple the number of beds in the event of a major emergency. Other enhancements for patients include 90 percent private patient rooms, 28 more intensive care beds, two additional palliative care rooms, four pediatric exam rooms and one dedicated pediatric waiting room in the Emergency Department. The General will be the only hospital in the City with a base-isolated foundation, the most advanced seismic resistant design known today. It will be a “green” building for reduced water and energy use, and is seeking LEED Gold Certification. In recognition of this transformative gift, the City has begun the process of adding their names to the hospital which will be named Priscilla and Mark Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center.The General has served the City and County of San Francisco and northern San Mateo County for 140 years, from the Gold Rush to the 1906 earthquake to the HIV/AIDS epidemic to the 2013 Asiana Airlines crash at San Francisco International Airport. As the City’s public hospital, The General is a member of the San Francisco Health Network, an integrated delivery system operated by the Department of Public Health that provides all levels of care to San Franciscans.Today, The General remains at the forefront of health care. It became the first hospital in the country to be certified for a Traumatic Brain Injury program in 2011 and is the only Baby-Friendly certified hospital in San Francisco. The General houses nationally recognized Centers of Excellence, including those in neurotrauma, stroke and orthopaedics and it provides groundbreaking programs that improve access and quality of care to the most vulnerable populations. In partnership with University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine, The General provides valuable training for future leaders in health care. With the new hospital opening in December 2015, The General’s capabilities will continue to grow, serving diverse patients with some of the City’s most complex and chronic problems.Source:PR Newswirelast_img read more

Newmont continued success in removing personnel from mining line of fire

first_imgToday Newmont published its Beyond the Mine 2017 Sustainability Report. Part of this focussed on safety. “With large, heavy equipment and vast, complex facilities operating around the clock, the mining environment has many safety hazards. Through automation and other technologies, Newmont is working to reduce, or in some cases altogether eliminate, some of these safety risks by removing personnel from the so-called ‘line of fire.’”“At our Northwest Exodus expansion project, which extends the mine life of Newmont’s underground Exodus mine in Nevada, we designed the expansion to accommodate autonomous muckers and stope drills. Instead of a sitting behind the controls of a mucker used to shovel and haul ore and rock through underground tunnels, operators will control the autonomous equipment remotely, reducing his or her risks related to interaction with large vehicles and equipment, dust exposure, noise, and injury from repeatedly entering and exiting the mucker.”Autonomous stope drills – which are used to drill blast holes in underground stopes, or areas where ore is extracted – will improve safety by moving the drill operator into an enclosed cab. The operation of drill rods will also be automated, eliminating the injury risks associated with moving the rods manually. These drills are Atlas Copco (Epiroc) Simba machines. The automated muckers (LHDs) are supplied by Caterpillar through dealer Cashman and utilise its Command for Underground system, similar to that already used by Newmont at Leeville.The company also gave a number of examples of other technologies and innovations supporting its safety goals:“Drones are now being used by some of our operations to conduct surveys and inspect blast zones, haul truck roads and mining infrastructure, such as piping that is located at height. We also use drones – along with autonomous dozers – to clean and maintain catch benches (ie the geometric benches in surface mines that play a crucial role in preventing rock falls from upper levels of the pit slope). At Mt Leyshon – one of our decommissioned mines in Australia – a drone was used to conduct environmental sampling of the pit lake. This was the first time since 2011 that sampling could be done due to safety issues with accessing the lake by boat.”“At a number of our operations, we use advanced, real-time tyre pressure monitoring systems that have not only improved tyre life and provided immediate alerts when tyre temperatures rise to dangerous levels, they also eliminated the need for someone to manually run this test in close proximity to the truck.”“Long Canyon’s leach crew in Nevada developed a system that not only speeds up the process for laying leaching solution lines on new leach pad production cells, it also eliminates the need for someone to pull the line while walking across the pad. Crews no longer have to walk on uneven ground, and the system is especially beneficial on outer slopes and in the winter when snow conceals ground conditions.”last_img read more

Teck enhances mining survey efficiency with Skycatch high precision package

first_imgThe picture shows Teck using Skycatch at its Line Creek Operations. The Skycatch High Precision Package (HPP) has been selected by Teck Resources, Canada’s largest diversified resource company, for aerial drone surveying at a number of its mining operations.“Customers like Teck are setting new standards in the mining industry by implementing tools that support their mission of increased safety and efficiency. We couldn’t be more proud to assist Teck by helping them reach their admirable goals with the Skycatch solution,” says Christian Sanz, Founder & CEO of Skycatch.Teck is using a cost-effective and safe approach to surveying with a wide range of benefits including sub-5-cm georeferenced topographic maps and the ability to perform on the fly volume calculations while sharing data efficiently.“Using drone technology at our operations is just one of the ways Teck is putting innovation and technology to work across our company to improve productivity and enhance safety and environmental performance,” said Laura Ingram, Senior Engineering Supervisor, Teck Line Creek Operations.Teck uses Skycatch at its Red Dog Operations in northwest Alaska and at its Line Creek steelmaking coal operation in the Elk Valley of British Columbia, Canada. Both of these sites can experience high winds and drastic temperature changes, which require a ruggedized UAV that can stabilize itself and withstand even the most demanding conditions. The HPP provides the full solution to rapidly collect and process their data capture with a crisp and precise output to view the progression of the site in near real-time. This has helped Teck improve communication, safety, and efficiency.Skycatch is a leading industrial data collection and analytics company, focused on indexing and extracting critical information from the physical world. It uses a combination of hardware, software, and artificial intelligence to deliver high precision data at great speed and with ease of use. Built for enterprise, the turnkey solutions are deployed across global project sites with the world’s largest construction, mining, and energy companies.last_img read more

Trisomie 21 ou syndrome de Down test et dépistage prénatal pour détecter

first_imgTrisomie 21 ou syndrome de Down : test et dépistage prénatal pour détecter la maladie Aujourd’hui 21 mars, se tient la 2e édition de la Journée mondiale de la Trisomie 21 qui est l’occasion de lancer une nouvelle campagne de sensibilisation et d’information sur ce syndrome lié à une anomalie génétique.Egalement appelé syndrome de Down, la trisomie 21 est, comme son nom l’indique, liée à une anomalie génétique qui apparait au niveau des chromosomes numéro 21. Plus précisément, il s’agit de la présence dans les cellules d’un chromosome surnuméraire : au lieu d’en avoir seulement deux, il y en a trois. Ceci est généralement due à une anomalie lors de la répartition des chromosomes dans les cellules sexuelles parentales : la cellule de l’un des parents va amener deux chromosomes 21 au lieu d’un.La trisomie 21 est aujourd’hui l’une des anomalies génétiques les plus communes, affectant plus de 65.000 personnes en France. Elle se manifeste par des particularités morphologiques spécifiques : une nuque plate, un visage rond, un petit nez, des yeux plus écartés et des fentes de paupières obliques. Les pieds comme les doigts sont généralement courts et les mains plutôt trapues. Mais la trisomie conduit aussi à l’apparition de signes plus sérieux telles qu’une hypotonie musculaire (muscles mous) et une souplesse excessive des ligaments articulaires. D’autres malformations notamment cardiaques peuvent également apparaitre.En outre, le syndrome de Down, dans sa forme la plus classique, est généralement associé à un retard du développement cognitif et donc à une déficience intellectuelle. Mais l’importance de cette déficience varie énormément d’un individu à l’autre. Certaines personnes trisomiques peuvent ainsi développer une autonomie quasiment complète alors que chez d’autres, elle restera faible. Un dépistage dès le premier trimestre de grossesseLe diagnostic ne peut se faire que par la mise en évidence du chromosome 21 surnuméraire à l’aide d’un examen génétique. Toutefois, il existe aujourd’hui plusieurs techniques permettant de réaliser un diagnostic prénatal et donc de savoir avant la naissance si le bébé présente un risque d’avoir une trisomie 21. Aujourd’hui plus efficace et plus précoce, le dépistage se met en place dès le premier trimestre de grossesse et repose sur plusieurs méthodes incluant un examen sanguin et des mesures échographiques. Néanmoins, l’âge de la future mère a son importance dans le processus de dépistage. En effet, les recherches ont démontré que plus l’âge de la femme est avancé plus le risque de trisomie 21 augmente. A 40 ans, le risque est ainsi bien plus important qu’à 30 ans. Les deux examens réalisés pour dépister la trisomie sont : une mesure de la clarté nucale et un dosage des marqueurs sériques. Le premier examen s’effectue lors de la première échographie réalisée entre la 11 et la 14e semaine d’aménorrhée (SA). Une mesure de la clarté nucale et un dosage de marqueursIl consiste à observer le petit espace liquidien situé au niveau de la nuque du foetus : en cas de trisomie, la quantité de liquide est plus importante. Au cours du même examen, le foetus sera également mesuré de la tête jusqu’au bas de la colonne vertébrale. Ces mesures associées à l’âge de la mère et d’éventuelles antécédents d’anomalies chromosomiques vont permettre d’établir un calcul du risque de trisomie 21. Ceci permet d’identifier correctement plus de 75% des bébés atteints du syndrome. Néanmoins, ce n’est pas parce que l’examen conduit à un risque un peu élevé que le foetus est forcément trisomique. Ce résultat peut donc être complété par un autre examen cette fois-ci sanguin. Le dosage des marqueurs sériques se fait à l’aide d’une prise de sang de la mère et consiste à mesurer la concentration de trois molécules produites par le placenta. Ces données permettent comme les mesures précédemment évoquées de calculer le risque de trisomie. Si le dépistage est réalisée dans de bonnes conditions, ceci permet d’identifier plus de 70% des foetus trisomiques. Toutefois, là encore, un risque élevé ne confirme par une trisomie et inversement. Le calcul du risque va donc mener, en fonction de sa valeur à des examens complémentaires.Une amniocentèse ou une biopsie du trophoblaste Lorsque le risque est supérieur à 1/250, le médecin va proposer un prélèvement à visée diagnostique qui se fait le plus souvent avec une amniocentèse. Cet examen consiste à ponctionner à l’aide d’une fine aiguille à travers le ventre, du liquide amniotique. Ce dernier va permettre d’établir le caryotype (carte des chromosomes) du foetus et donc de compter le nombre de chromosome 21.  Les résultats sont un peu long à obtenir (environ 3 semaines) mais la technique est fiable à 100%. En revanche, si elle n’est pas douloureuse pour la mère, elle peut provoquer une fausse couche dans 0,5 à 1% des cas.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Outre l’amniocentèse, une autre méthode peut aussi être employée : la biopsie du trophoblaste. Elle consiste à prélever un morceau du placenta en passant par la voie abdominale ou par le col de l’utérus. Ce fragment va permettre là encore de réaliser le caryotype de l’enfant et de confirmer ou non la présence d’un 3e chromosome. Les résultats sont obtenus plus rapidement mais le risque pour le foetus est plus élevé qu’avec une amniocentèse. Au deuxième semestre, il devient plus difficile de détecter la trisomie 21 à l’échographie. Aujourd’hui, le dépistage du syndrome de Down n’est pas obligatoire mais il doit être proposé “à toute femme enceinte au cours d’une consultation médicale”, selon la loi de bioéthique. Chaque future mère peut donc décider ou non de le faire.Le 21 mars 2013 à 16:32 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Herrera Beutler questions feds actions on Cowlitz casino

first_imgU.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler sent a letter Monday to Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, questioning why Jewell’s department would make a promise to the Cowlitz Tribe to take land into trust for a reservation while the legality of the land transfer remains tied up in federal court.Last month, an acting assistant attorney general filed notice in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., alerting the judge and plaintiffs that the Department of the Interior, one of the defendants in the case, “will acquire the approximately 151.87 acres of land in Clark County, Washington, in trust for the benefit of the Cowlitz Indian Tribe no sooner than the earlier of Jan. 21, 2015, or thirty days after a court order granting summary judgment in favor of defendants.”Tribal Chairman William Iyall heralded the decision as a significant moment in Cowlitz history, given that the tribe has been fighting for a dozen years to establish a reservation west of La Center. Herrera Beutler, however, wrote in her letter that the premature decision sets a bad precedent and “has become a great source of concern and confusion in Southwest Washington.” “For this acquisition to take place while the court is still considering a case to determine whether the department even has the authority to take this land into trust is not only a major shift in the department policy, but also potentially a violation of federal law,” she wrote.last_img read more

Melco likely to pass Australian regulatory inquiry target full Crown acquisition Bernstein

first_img Strong VIP growth sees Okada Manila GGR climb 72% in August Lack of premium mass strategy begs questions of SJM’s Grand Lisboa Palace launch: analysts Melco Resorts & Entertainment should pass a recently announced inquiry into its acquisition of a 19.99% stake in Australia’s Crown Resorts, paving the way for the Asian IR operator to pursue controlling or even full ownership, according to brokerage Sanford C Bernstein.The inquiry, to be conducted by the NSW Independent Liquor & Gaming Authority under the NSW Casino Control Act, was called following recent reports by Australian media outlets alleging links between Crown and Asian crime syndicates and questioning the company’s relationship with junket operators. Those reports also highlighted the fact that Melco Chairman and CEO Lawrence Ho is the son of Macau casino magnate Stanley Ho, with whom Crown is prohibited from conducting any business as per a 2014 agreement with the NSW regulator. Load More RelatedPosts New Chief Executive vows to protect Macau’s gaming and tourism industry from harm In a research note published early Wednesday morning, Bernstein analysts Vitaly Umansky, Eunice Lee and Kelsey Zhu said that while the “sensationalistic” nature of the news reports presented a risk that Melco’s acquisition could be denied, “this would be unfortunate for both Melco and Australia’s gaming industry.”More importantly, “We expect Melco and Lawrence Ho to clear probity review and receive regulatory approval on the merits.”Bernstein pointed to the fact that Melco and Crown have already been partners in the ill-fated Melco-Crown tie-up that launched IRs in Macau and Manila (before separating in 2017), passing probity checks in NSW and Victoria during that time. It also noted that historical reports alleging links between Stanley Ho and triad activities in Macau had never been proven, that he had never been arrested or convicted of any of the allegations and had repeatedly denied any criminal ties.“Further, while Stanley Ho is still alive, he is completely out of the gaming business and is in full retirement,” the analysts said. “Stanley Ho has been pretty much out of the whole gaming picture since 2009 after suffering from a fall at home and being confined to a hospital for seven months thereafter.”Assuming Melco is given the green light to proceed, Bernstein expects the company to acquire the remaining 26.8% Crown stake held by James Packer – pushing Melco to 46.8% ownership – and from there pursue a possible full acquisition.“Assuming a full acquisition of Crown occurs, Melco will become a truly global and more diversified gaming company,” it said, noting that the opening of Crown Sydney in 2021 promises to provide a strong synergy to Melco’s existing operations in the premium and VIP space.Acquisition of a bigger stake is also seen as a benefit to the company’s ultimate goal of winning a Japan IR license given it would require a full probity review by Australian regulators, therefore “enhancing Melco’s global branding in its bid for a Japan IR.”last_img read more

When space is limited — or when you’re camping or traveling — blowing up an inflatable air mattress is usually the best solution for accommodating folks. And even if it’s not quite the same as a traditional mattress, with an air bed, you’ll still be able to offer your guests decent comfort and a good night’s sleep. However, the air mattress is a dizzyingly crowded product category, with more than 10,000 search results on Amazon alone. Read more: The best Labor Day 2019 mattress sales available nowWe’ve taken the most popular and the best air mattresses we’ve found on Amazon and other major retailers (including Target and Walmart) and put them through a battery of hands-on testing. This includes repeatedly inflating and deflating them, evaluating their construction and durability, and subjecting them to the rigors of camping and a series of acrobatically inclined children’s sleepovers to test them for air pressure, comfort and how puncture resistant they are. To narrow down the best air mattress, we confined our testing to Queen-sized models rather than twin size to standardize size, comfort and price comparisons.   See at REI Intex Comfort Plush Elevated Dura-Beam (22-inch) Pump type 22 Post a comment 0 See at Amazon See at Amazon Best air mattresses, compared $85 Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student.

Priced at $120, it’s more expensive than most of the other models we tested in its height range, but it’s a durable air mattress. Though we take Amazon customer reviews with a grain of salt, this mattress has more than 11,000 five-star reviews testifying to its durability and comfort. (Fakespot, which grades the trustworthiness of Amazon testimonials, gives this bed’s reviews an “A.”)SoundAsleep calls this a “double-height” mattress, and it is on the taller side — you’re sleeping a good 18 inches off the ground. Like many models that come with an integrated electric pump, it’s plenty heavy, weighing about 19 pounds. The pump is loud but powerful. It took a reasonable 3.5 minutes to fully inflate the mattress — and I mean fully — and about the same to deflate it. The SoundAsleep Dream is made of rigid plastic that’s still easy enough to fold up and stuff into the included nylon drawstring sack that serves as a carry bag, which is great for camping. But it’s also one of the more pungent beds I tested, and people who are sensitive to off-gassing may want to choose an alternative. When you order directly from SoundAsleep, there’s a 30-day no-questions-asked return period. If you buy from Amazon or SoundAsleep, you get a limited one year warranty that covers manufacturer’s defects (but not punctures or holes made on your watch). You’ll need to pay for shipping the mattress back to SoundAsleep.The bottom line: It’s not cheap — but it’s worth the money. Inflates fully, well-constructed, strong customer reviews, slightly more pungent than others. Recommended. Best value: Intex Comfort Plush Elevated Dura-Beamscreen-shot-2019-06-18-at-11-35-13-am Amazon Price: $47.50Pump type: ElectricHeight when inflated: 22 inchesWarranty: NoneSee it at AmazonIntex has struck a compelling balance between price and value with the Comfort Plush Elevated Dura-Beam. Though it’s on the cheaper side, it’s sturdy, impressively firm and ultimately comfortable enough to sleep on.The integrated, plug-in pump isn’t as fast an inflater as others — but it’s plenty powerful, and the bed ranks among the firmest we tested. The top and sides of the mattress are coated in a velvety treatment that Intex says it makes it more puncture-resistant. That may be true, but it also means that if you do spring a leak, you’d better hope it’s on the bottom panel, which is the only place a patch will stick.It’s also one of the tallest air mattresses we tested, measuring 22 inches high when fully inflated. There’s a little lip around the periphery that suggests there’s a protective barrier designed to keep you from rolling off (it won’t). But the bed is quite stable. The movements of a person on one side shouldn’t bother a companion. And, compared to the others, I didn’t find it particularly pungent.The Amazon price for this mattress varies between $50 and $60. There are plenty of customer reviews that mention leakiness but there are many more five-star customer reviews on the site than lower-rated ones. Still, Fakespot rates it a “C,” which suggests that there may be some degree of “deception involved.” Intex covers this air mattress with an exclusion-filled, 90-day warranty. The bottom line: This is a reasonably priced, tall air mattress that’s relatively comfortable to sleep on. Recommended.Best warranty: AirExpect Airbedscreen-shot-2019-06-18-at-11-36-18-am Amazon Price: $80Pump type: ElectricHeight when inflated: 19 inchesWarranty: Two yearsSee it at AmazonAirExpect’s AirBed has a built-in electric pump that’s loud but fast and powerful. It took about 3 minutes to fully, and I mean fully, inflate it — an accomplishment that positions it in the upper tier of our group.AirExpect says that this mattress is 19 inches tall. My tape measure says it’s 17 inches tall; the raised lip that runs along the top edge is closer to 18 inches tall. It’s constructed out of a plastic that feels a bit more durable than others — but also comes with six vinyl patches included. That’s generous, but I’ve wondered whether it doesn’t signal a lack of confidence on behalf of the manufacturer. One nice touch: beside the integrated pump controls, the AirExpect AirBed has a plastic valve that you can open to deflate the mattress more quickly. Also, in a pinch, if you find yourself without power, you can use the valve — and a pump (not included) — to inflate the bed. This air mattress has hundreds of 5-star reviews on Amazon, but Fakespot gives its listing it a “D” grade, which suggests that its rating may be less stellar in real-life. That noted, AirExpect offers one of the longest warranty periods of any air mattress manufacturer, two years, and will provide a full refund within 30 days. The company says it also provides 24-hour customer support, though many of the unflattering reviews cite customer service communication woes.  The bottom line: Powerful pump delivers high degree of firmness, valve gives you options, superior warranty terms. Recommended.Least pungent: Lightspeed Outdoors 2 Person PVC-Free Air Bed Mattressscreen-shot-2019-06-18-at-11-37-22-am Amazon Price: $79-$100Pump type: Battery-operatedHeight when inflated: 7 inchesWarranty: One yearSee it at AmazonDesigned for camping, the Lightspeed Outdoors Air Bed Mattress lives up to its name: At 6 pounds, pump included, it’s undeniably lightweight. It comes with a compact, battery-operated pump, which takes four D cells (not included). Compared to a typical plug-in pump, the Lightspeed bed comes up short. I let it run for more than 6 minutes but could never get this mattress as fully inflated as I wanted. (The pump’s “deflate” setting is similarly inefficient. I’d recommend saving the batteries and rolling up the mattress to expel air manually.)Lightspeed Outdoors emphasizes that this air mattress is Phthalate- and PVC-free, constructed instead out of Thermoplastic polyurethane — which feels more durable and smells less plasticky than the material used for most other air mattresses. If you’re sensitive to chemical smells, or offgassing, this mattress deserves special consideration. This air mattress measures 55 by 79 inches — slightly smaller than the technical queen dimensions of 60 by 80 inches — but I didn’t have any problem getting standard sheets to fit snugly. And though Lightspeed doesn’t specify its weight capacity, I suspect it’s more or less in line with the others I tested. My two kids and I (combined weight: roughly 320 pounds) assembled comfortably on it. Note that I observed that the Amazon price for this mattress varied between $65 and $100 while I was working on this article, with some colors more expensive than others. The bottom line: Best suited to car camping, the lightweight and reasonably priced Lightspeed Outdoors air mattress is noteworthy for its use of alternative materials and will make a good choice for those sensitive to the pungent off-gassing of many plastic air mattresses. Luxury pick: REI Kingdom Insulated Sleep System 40screen-shot-2019-06-18-at-11-38-29-am REI Price: $280Pump type: ManualHeight when inflated: 6 inchesWarranty: One yearSee it at REIAccording to REI, this is not an airbed — it’s a “sleep system.” And, at $280 for the queen bed, an expensive one at that. But we found it worth the price if you’re looking for a super firm, durable mattress that comes with dedicated linens and a comforter.The sleep system includes an insulated air mattress, a fitted sheet, a top sheet, a quilted comforter and, somewhat surprisingly, given the price, a hand pump. The mattress is sturdy and well-constructed. And using the included Bravo hand pump, I was able to inflate it until it was absolutely taut. Yes, it took about two and a half minutes of vigorous, aerobic pumping — and that doesn’t include multiple hands-on-knees timeouts — to inflate it. Still, the degree of firmness you can get from the Sleep System is distinctive. Most of the other air mattresses we tested, and especially those that came with a battery-powered pump, were impossible to fully inflate, making for a sleeping experience that ran the gamut from slightly saggy to fully dispiriting. Though it requires hard work, REI’s manual pump is by far the most powerful and effective one we tested. Deflating was quicker and easier, and the mattress itself — separate from all of the included linens — is relatively light and compact. REI’s bedding is bulky but nice. The fitted sheet includes elastic bands at the corners, to keep it in place, and the comforter and top sheet can be connected with the kind of toggle and loop you’d find on a tent fly. As a result, everything stays where it’s supposed to. REI says that the sleep system’s insulation (3.6 R-value) will keep you warm in temperatures down to about 40 degrees. That’s more than adequate if you’re sleeping inside a house or apartment, but I suspect cold weather campers would want additional blankets or a sleeping bag. The bottom line: This is a very expensive air mattress — but it’s well-made, comfortable to sleep on and suitable for both indoor and camping use. The manual pump takes a lot of work to operate but gets the mattress firmer than any other we tested.Other air mattress optionsscreen-shot-2019-06-18-at-11-48-03-am Walmart Bestway AirbedPrice: $25Pump type: ElectricHeight when inflated: 12 inchesWarranty: UnclearSee it at WalmartThe epitome of a cheap air mattress, the $25 Bestway Airbed is is compact, lightweight and, with its integrated pump, relatively quick to inflate.On the downside, it’s not comfortable — at all. It sits low to the ground at just nine inches high, and the pump isn’t remotely powerful enough to inflate it fully, so it makes for a rather squishy ride. The tubular design gives it the look of a pack of hotdogs, and the one raised, horizontal hotdog that’s meant to approximate a pillow, sets the mattress askew, which makes it even more unstable.The Bestway Airbed has plenty of negative reviews on Walmart.com that cite slow leaks, fast leaks, burst seams, spontaneous bubbling and terrible customer service — as well as dozens of very positive ones. And though Bestway’s comically vague manufacturer’s warranty doesn’t instill confidence, given the price, warranty isn’t a crucial consideration here. Still, Walmart’s policy states that most products can be returned, with their original packaging, for a full refund within 90 days.The bottom line: If you’re looking for the least expensive air mattress available, this is it. Unless you’re a narcoleptic, don’t expect to get a good night’s sleep on it.Simmons Beautyrest Hi Loftscreen-shot-2019-06-18-at-11-49-28-am Walmart Price: $51Pump type: ElectricHeight when inflated: 17 inchesWarranty: 90 daysSee it at WalmartThe Beautyrest Hi Loft comes equipped with a plug-in electric pump that screws on to the body of the mattress. Once attached, it inflates the mattress quickly — it takes about 2 minutes — though not as fully as I would’ve liked. Once it’s inflated, you need to quickly unscrew the pump and replace the valve cap. It’s not the most elegant solution.The Beautyrest has the same pack-of-hotdogs design as the Bestway Airbed, and has the precarious feel of a pool float. (Many companies that make air mattresses also make pools and pool accessories. Go figure.) It lacks the stability of other air mattresses and I nearly tipped it over by laying too far to one side. Simmons lists its dimensions at 80 by 60 by 17 inches, but my measurements put it closer to 76 inches long, which means that anyone taller than 6 feet will likely hang off the end. The mattress is constructed from a softer type of vinyl than others, which is easier to roll up and fold into a compact, storage-friendly shape. The bottom line: Other air mattresses are more stable and more comfortable in the $60-range.Serta 16-inch Raised Queen Size Airbed with Internal AC Pumpscreen-shot-2019-06-18-at-11-50-28-am Target Price: $110Pump type: ElectricHeight when inflated: 16 inchesWarranty: 90 days (exchange only)See it at TargetThis air mattress retails for $110 but we bought it on sale for $80 from Target. I wouldn’t recommend it at either price.  That’s not to say that the Serta 16-inch AirBed doesn’t have anything going for it. The built-in electric pump quieter than some of the other integrated electric ones we tested and its 8-foot power cord is longer than average, which might be an important consideration for some. Still, even inflated to capacity, this air mattress is squishy, less supportive and more pungent than other models we tested. And it deflated to a surprising degree during the 80 minutes that my kids laid on it while watching the movie “Boy and the World.” We bought our Serta air mattress from Target, which won’t accept it for return once it’s opened, but will exchange it for a new one within 90 days.The bottom line: There are better and less expensive air mattresses than this one. Not recommendedKing Koil Luxury Raised Air Mattressscreen-shot-2019-06-18-at-11-52-01-am Amazon Price: $120Pump type: ElectricHeight when inflated: 20 inchesWarranty: One yearThe King Koil Luxury Raised Air Mattress consistently ranks in the top 10 on Amazon’s category bestseller list. But this may have as much to do with the company’s mastery of search engine optimization and Amazon review gamesmanship as its ability to design a quality product. Fakespot currently gives this bed’s customer reviews — of which there are thousands — a “C” grade for authenticity, which is better than the “F” is received previously.Still, there are a few reasons to like the King Koil Luxury Raised Air Mattress: the built-in pump is powerful enough to completely inflate the mattress in just over 3 minutes and it’s quite tall, measuring about 21 inches high. But there are issues. This was one of the most pungent, plasticky-smelling air mattresses I tested. It’s also heavy. The queen-sized King Koil weighs nearly 21 pounds, though Amazon lists it at 17. Even when fully inflated, this mattress squishes down significantly when you try to get up from it, and I found that it repeatedly lost considerable amounts of air overnight. For these cardinal sins, Consumer Reports has savaged the King Koil, singling it out as one to avoid — and I concur. The bottom line: Overpriced, odorous and less capable of remaining fully inflated overnight than others.Coleman Airbed Cotscreen-shot-2019-06-18-at-11-53-09-am Coleman Price: $220Pump type: Battery-operatedHeight when inflated: 22 inchesWarranty: One yearI’m not a fan of the Coleman AirBed Cot. It’s expensive, heavy and unwieldy, hard to set up and, worst of all, uncomfortable to lay on.   Coleman’s air mattress isn’t particularly distinctive in any way — other than for being one of the most pungently plastic-smelling I tested. To say that Coleman’s included QuickPump, which takes four D batteries, is underpowered would be an understatement. It was unable to fill the air mattress to anything close to its capacity, and I gave up after 10 increasingly frustrating minutes. (Some Amazon reviewers have resorted to using their mouths to inflate this mattress.) The pump nozzle doesn’t fit snugly into the mattress valve, and you’re forced to hold it in place throughout the whole disheartening process.But the steel backbone is something else: It makes the whole package absurdly heavy — it weighs about 42 pounds, which is about twice as much as any other we tested, which makes it a poor choice for camping — though it comes with a wheeled, but ultimately unwieldy, carry bag. The steel frame unfolds sort of like a pack and play — that is, not easily — and has no locking mechanism. But it does have a steel bar running down the middle — which is a huge, body-wrecking bummer, especially when you’re sleeping on a half-deflated air mattress. I suppose if two people are sleeping in this bed, each supine and occupying one of the trenches, as it were, it might work. But I wouldn’t want to be either one of them.There are a few thoughtful touches — including a zippered pocket that holds the air mattress in place on the frame, and two foldable side tables, each of which has an integrated mesh pocket to hold a drink. But they’re not nearly enough to salvage Coleman’s Airbed Cot. The bottom line: Hard pass.What to look for in an air mattressThere are a few general things to consider when looking for the best air mattress. Price will be a primary criteria for most people searching for the best air mattress; you can get a queen-sized bed for as little as $30, while the most expensive air mattresses can cost hundreds of dollars. But a higher price doesn’t always mean a high airbed, a better air mattress, better air pressure, more comfort, or a good night’s sleep.Most air mattresses have a built-in electric pump that plugs into a wall socket. Some have battery-powered pump, which usually runs on four D-cells. And a few come with a manual hand pump. The plug-in pumps are usually powerful but heavy and loud. Battery-operated pumps are lighter and don’t require a wall socket but are typically less effective and less capable of fully inflating a mattress. A manual pump, on the other hand, can deliver a degree of firmness the others can’t match and needs neither batteries nor outlet — but will require a significant amount of physical labor to operate.Though most of queen-sized air mattresses measure approximately 60 inches wide and 80 inches long, height is both a variable and a selling point. In fact, it may be a primary consideration for older or disabled people who would have trouble getting on or off a bed that’s too low to the ground. Likewise, a mattress that’s overly mushy will be harder to dismount. Of course, if you’ve ever slept on a crappy air mattress before, you know that the touchstone for quality is how reliably it holds air. And nearly every air mattress is beset by customer reviews complaining about leaks. You can tell that this is an industry that’s been traumatized by these complaints: Every bed we tested was imprinted with disclaimers, pleading about how all air mattresses stretch when you inflate them, and that you shouldn’t just assume that they’re leaking if they temporarily lose that initial level of firmness. And yet many air mattresses, whether they’re stretched out or not, do leak over the course of a night. Repeatedly. And even if you top them off. This mitigates the credibility of some manufacturers’ claims. And there are some beds that are simply more durable and well-constructed than others. But airtightness is tricky to judge, even after you inflate an air mattress, and may reveal itself only over time. As such, most manufacturers offer a one-year warranty or guarantee. A few extend that to two years. Others will give you 90 days and throw in a few vinyl patches to cover up a puncture wound.

What you need to know about Fallout New Vegas before playing Fallout

first_imgWhen Bethesda brought the Fallout franchise to Washington DC in Fallout 3, they created their own corner of the Wasteland, far from the West Coast setting of the first two games. Some players were just discovering the series through this new game, but there was a legion of long-time fans who wanted to know what had happened to the characters and places from the older games. Fallout: New Vegas arrived two years after Fallout 3, and brought the franchise to the Mojave desert. Not quite the same location as the first two games, but close enough to California that players could learn about the aftermath of Fallout 2, while still meeting some new faces. Here are some of ideas that were brought to the series by New Vegas.New Vegas is set in 2281, four years after Fallout 3. A pivotal figure in the story is a man named Robert House. Some people prepared for the apocalypse, but Robert House didn’t just squirrel away a few cans of Cram and a case of sarsaparilla, he prepared the entire city of Las Vegas to survive the end of the world.As a wealthy industrialist, with ties to the military, House had the personal influence and resources to build an army of “Securitron” robots, and to mount sophisticated defenses on the roof of his casino in Vegas. When the Great War came, he used these to shoot down enemy bombs and missiles, thereby protecting Vegas from the worst of the attack, although not escaping entirely untouched.Before the Great War, Robert House attended The Institute, a university that players will discover for themselves in Fallout 4. There he gained much of the technological expertise he needed to prepare his city for the war. House’s legacy is present in all of the Fallout games, because he founded RobCo, the corporation that built many of the robots seen throughout the series, as well as making the Pip-Boy computers.When players entered the Vegas Strip over 200 years after the war, they discovered a thriving city, patrolled by House’s Securitrons. People could not only walk the streets in safety, but also fritter away their caps at opulent pre-war casinos that were run by humans who had been recruited by House from the local tribes. This was a far cry from the lawless casino town of New Reno in Fallout 2, or the mutant-infested ruins of Washington DC in Fallout 3.Deep within his casino headquarters, Robert House had a medical chamber that kept him alive for centuries, which makes him one of the oldest people in the world. He had silently plotted from within his fortress while chaos ruled the outside world, waiting for the right moment to reveal himself and his robot army. Other such far-seeing individuals may be lurking around the wasteland.The villains of Fallout 2, The Enclave, had traveled to the East Coast in Fallout 3. However, there were still a handful of them left in the West, 40 years after their defeat in Fallout 2. These grey-haired remnants had a small base in the Mojave, where they reminisced about the good old days.Although this seemed like an ignoble end for The Enclave, New Vegas had several hints about other Enclave bases throughout the country. There was an Enclave “Eyebot” named ED-E who could join the player’s party. ED-E contained secret Enclave communications that could be unlocked by diligent players, and these pointed to an Enclave outpost in Chicago. All of this implied that Enclave operatives were still plotting new schemes long after their initial defeat.Because New Vegas was set over 200 years after the Great War, civilization had begun to return to parts of the wasteland. With it came the best and worst of old world governments. In the 40 years after Fallout 2, the New California Republic had thrived. They had a democratically elected government, a (Relatively) stable economy, and a large well-organized army. The NCR was so pleased with themselves that they spread their brand of civilization everywhere they could, by any any means possible, all the way to Vegas and the Colorado river. The NCR valued law and order, but they were ruthless when annexing new territory and resources.After the events of Fallout 2, the NCR and the Brotherhood of Steel joined together to clear out the remaining Enclave forces, but that union didn’t last long. Soon enough the hegemonistic attitudes of the NCR clashed with the Brotherhood’s isolationism. A vicious war between them broke out before the events of New Vegas, and it carried over to the Mojave area where the NCR and Brotherhood fought over pre-war technology, resulting in a decisive defeat of the Brotherhood’s Mojave chapter.The first Fallout game presented the Brotherhood of Steel as most powerful group in the Wasteland, but they had grown increasingly less relevant in the West over the years. In New Vegas, the Brotherhood was hidden away from the world, mostly minding their own business. The quest lines with them were often based on the notion of rogue Brotherhood operatives trying to reclaim their lost glory, or rebel against ineffective leadership.The previous Fallout games had focused on the coastal regions, and the only game that looked at the middle of the country was the non-canonical Fallout Tactics. New Vegas gave players some insights into America’s middle by showing a war between the NCR and a rival army from farther inland, Caesar’s Legion. The Legion was originally conceived as part of an aborted Fallout game called Van Buren, but they were brought back as the primary antagonists for New Vegas.The Legion patterned themselves after the ancient Romans, a society of slavers with an autocratic ruler. They assimilated every tribe and town in their path, and had conquered a large chunk of post-apocalyptic America. They ruled the areas East of the Colorado River, while the NCR ruled the territory West of it, with the two armies deadlocked at the Hoover Dam just outside of Vegas.The stalemate at the Hoover Dam was a major plot point in New Vegas. This is one of the reasons why the NCR hadn’t managed to establish a cross-country Republic. However, the game did not explain what was happening on the other side of Legion territory, towards the Mississippi and beyond. The Legion’s Eastern border and the areas North and West of Pittsburg were left open for other games to explore.The super mutants from the first two games were in the Mojave too, but they were relatively rare. A few of the mutants rampaged around the Wasteland causing trouble for humans, but others managed to form communities of their own.Some of the older mutants from the first game were called Nightkin, a breed of super mutant not seen in Fallout 3. These creatures had once been the elite enemy troops in the first Fallout, but they all began to go insane by New Vegas. They used devices called Stealth Boys that turned them invisible, but had unfortunate side effects. In 2281, most of the Nightkin were sequestered in isolated mutant communities, raving to their imaginary friends, running pirate radio stations, and practicing bizarre religions.The second generation mutants from Fallout 2 were simple-minded brutes, and they had not improved with age. Many of the Nightkin and second-gen mutants were under the care of Marcus, a mutant companion character from Fallout 2. He gathered them together in a place called Jacobstown in the hope of curing Nightkin schizophrenia.New Vegas established that most of the factions seen in the early games were tied up with their own problems out West. The Enclave was reduced to a handful of remnants, a humbled Brotherhood of Steel cowered in their bunker, and the super mutants struggled to take care of their own, while the NCR fought the Legion to a standstill.Fallout 4 has its own versions of the Brotherhood and super mutants, along with the return of several organizations introduced in Fallout 3. Geek.com will be back to discuss everything that players need to know before they take their first steps into The Commonwealth’s wasteland on November 10. Until then, catch up on the original Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, and be sure to brush up on interesting Fallout trivia. You only have a week to catch up!last_img read more

The solution includes Computer-Assisted Physician Documentation (CAPD), augmenting its M*Modal Fluency Direct to deliver automated, real-time and interactive insights to clinicians as they document in the electronic health record (EHR) for continuous improvement in how doctors care for their patients.More than 200,000 physicians rely on M*Modal’s cloud-based Speech Understanding technology to accurately tell their patients’ stories. A year after the launch, the clinical intelligence application is already used by more than 150 customer sites. This interactive clinical intelligence system automatically brings the right information to the physician at the right point in time within the clinical workflow to deliver smarter care.By utilizing the CAPD functionality of M*Modal’s speech recognition solution, Fluency Direct, to support clinical documentation improvement (CDI), healthcare organizations have reported a 30 percent reduction in retrospective queries and amendments to the documentation. This significantly increases efficiency and documentation accuracy for physicians. Moreover, 70 percent of physicians utilizing this system are interacting with the clinical insights, increasing physician technology adoption and engagement.The three keys to such rapid and successful adoption are the accuracy of the insights derived using Natural Language Understanding of both structured and unstructured patient information, the unique ambient user experience, and the ease of technology integration.“We have successfully and seamlessly integrated M*Modal’s CAPD into our physician workflows by incorporating it into our EHR. This CAPD provides information embedded in current workflows so the information sharing is non-disruptive, but still results in physician behavior change,” said John Showalter, M.D., chief health information officer at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. “Importantly, the real-time information shared can be personalized to maximize efficiency while minimizing workflow disruptions. Advanced analytics about the physician’s documentation can be done retrospectively using the application’s ‘silent-mode’ with no workflow disruption. The combination of real-time support and advanced analytics gives us the knowledge we need to improve our physicians’ documentation practices.”M*Modal’s interactive documentation system is compatible with all leading EHRs, requiring no deep systems integration for ease and speed of deployment.M*Modal displayed Fluency Direct with Computer-Assisted Physician Documentation at the 2016 Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference, Feb. 29-March 4 in Las Vegas.For more information: www.mmodal.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | Radiology Business | August 02, 2019 VIDEO: Key Topics for Radiology Administrators at AHRA 2019 Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) President … read more 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 Feature | Information Technology | July 31, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr How Smart Devices Can Improve Efficiency Innovation is trending toward improved efficiency — but not at the expense of patient safety, according to… read more Sponsored Content | Case Study | Radiation Dose Management | August 13, 2019 The Challenge of Pediatric Radiation Dose Management Radiation dose management is central to child patient safety.

He added that he believes credible elections cannot be held amid persistent violence as the security forces try to quell protests against President Pierre Nkurunziza’s bid to extend his time in office.

And realizing that far too many kids don’t have that,” the singer-songwriter said by phone from Los Angeles. “That’s what being a father has done for me.”Legend, who performed at the 2006 peace prize concert, said he’s honoured to celebrate the same award that was handed to the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and former President Barack Obama. “I’m glad it’s being given to a group who is dedicated to actually making the world safer for everybody,” he said.Other performers include Zara Larsson, Sigrid, Matoma and Lukas Graham. Actor David Oyelowo will host and its highly likely Legend will sing “Glory” from the film “Selma” starring Oyelowo as King. It can be seen live online .Longtime concert executive producer Odd Arvid Strømstad said asking Legend to return this year made sense. “We had John Legend as one of the artists in 2006 in the beginning of his career, and that was a very good experience. Since then he has had an amazing career. Therefore, we have over the years discussed inviting him back,” he said.Late last month, Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, announced they were expecting their second child. Their daughter, Luna, was born in 2016. He said he goes to the concert this year mindful of his new role as a father.“It puts a little more focus on what the world is going to be. You want it to be safe. You want it to be peaceful. You want people to have opportunity. You want people to have justice.”Legend has lately found himself more vocal politically, backing a protesting NFL player, pushing for reforms in the criminal justice system and aiding marchers in New York demanding justice for a man who died in police custody.“Having our current president in office, it makes all of us a bit more aware of what’s happening because he’s causing a lot more concern that previous leaders have,” he said. “I’ve always been really aware but I think it’s making me speak out even more than I have before because there’s so much we have to be concerned about.”___Online: www.nobelpeaceprizeconcert.com___Mark Kennedy is at http://twitter.com/KennedyTwits FILE – In this June 30, 2017 file photo, John Legend performs at the 2017 Essence Festival at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, in New Orleans.
