.A man was killed in what the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) called a gunfight in Keshabpur of Panchbibi upazila in Joypurhat early Wednesday.Deceased Sohel Rana, 42, son of a certain Solaiman Sardar of Uttar Gopalpur village in the upazila, was a drug trader, claimed the RAB, reports UNB.Tipped off, a team of RAB conducted a raid in the area around 2:30am, assistant superintendent of police Azmal Hossain, camp commander of RAB-5 said.Sensing presence of the law enforcement, the criminals opened fire on them, forcing the RAB members to fire back in self-defence, he added.At one stage, Sohel caught in the line of fire and died on the spot. Two RAB men sustained injuries during the gunfight, the ASP said.A pistol, bullets, a magazine, three SIM cards, two mobile phone sets and 60 bottles of phensidyl were recovered from the spot.Sohel was wanted in eight/ ten cases, said the RAB official.Prothom Alo, however, could not verify the law enforcement’s version of the incident independently as no version of it was available immediately either from any witness or from any member of the victim’s family.
Pandora, which is available only in the U.S., has more overall users than Spotify — but remains well behind streaming-music category leader on paying subscribers. Spotify ended Q2 with 180 million monthly active users and 83 million Premium subscribers; in North America, Spotify has about 56 million total users, of which nearly 26 million are Premium customers.According to Pandora CEO Roger Lynch, Pandora’s recently announced partnerships with Snap and AT&T, which is offering Pandora Premium as an option for customers of its Unlimited & More Premium wireless plan, along with enhancements to ad tech and programmatic advertising offerings, “position us to further accelerate growth and ownership of the expanding digital audio marketplace,” he said in prepared remarks.During the quarter, Pandora launched its Premium Family Plan that provides access for up to six people under one billing account for $14.99 a month. The standard Pandora Premium plan ($9.99 per month) provides on-demand access to songs for a single user.Pandora closed the acquisition of audio advertising-tech startup Adswizz on May 25. The final purchase price was $146.6 million, comprising $73.7 million in cash and 9.6 million shares.Pandora’s net loss was $92.0 million (38 cents per share) for the most recent quarter, versus a net loss of $275.1 million in Q2 last year.For the second quarter of 2018, the net loss included an “unforecasted” non-cash charge of $14.6 million related to convertible debt exchange, plus a $7.2 million tax benefit for the release of a valuation allowance associated with the acquisition of Adswizz and additional expense relating to restructuring and the AdsWizz transaction fees, all of which reduced net income by approximately $10.5 million.Total Pandora listener hours were 5.09 billion for the second quarter of 2018, down from 5.22 billion for the same period the prior year. Pandora beat Wall Street targets on sales for the second quarter, and posted a smaller net loss, as the streaming-music provider continued to its grow its subscriber base — but saw overall number of active users drop.Total Q2 revenue was $384.8 million, an increase of 12% year-over-year (excluding its now-discontinued operations in Australia and New Zealand and Ticketfly, which it sold last fall). Q2 subscription revenue was was $113.7 million, an increase of 67% on a comparable basis.Pandora added 351,000 paying subscribers for Pandora Plus and Pandora Premium in the quarter, to stand at about 6 million at the end of June (up 23% year-over-year). Total active users were 71.4 million at the end of the second quarter of 2018 — down 6% from 76.0 million in the year-earlier period, and down 900,000 sequentially from 72.3 million in Q1. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Kolkata: The Amherst Street police is examining the role of a relativeof the doctor at the Vishudhanand Saraswati Marwari Hospital in the alleged loot of some silver articles and gold jewellery at the doctor’s Amherst Street residence on February 24. Police officers recovered a major chunk of the articles of silver and some gold ornaments from Sodepur in North 24 Parganas on Saturday night though no one has been arrested in this connection. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataOn the incident day, the doctor’s relative had alleged loot at knife-point by two persons and claimed that she was alone with her 8-year-old nephew when the criminals looted the residence. She claimed that her nephew was fast asleep when the crime was committed. However, the probe in the case and the recovery has revealed that the doctor’s relative is very likely to have hidden the gold and silver articles herself and a fabricated story of the loot. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateShe had allegedly sold them to a jeweller based in Sodepur in North 24 Parganas from where the police officers recovered a portion of the booty. “It seems to be simply an incident of theft and no loot. We are questioning some people in this connection to fix up the offender,” an investigating officer said. A police source revealed that the doctor’s relative , who is the prime suspect in the case, had been practising black magic for which she needed money. So she deliberately planned the whole episode, the source said. The complaint at the police station stated that the loot continued for 25 minutes and the duo had threatened to kill the victim’s nephew. The two were masked so the victim could not identify them. The police had suspected the role of some insider in the incident from the very beginning.

If we don’t know, that’s when we do additional testing. That’s the vast majority of our job.”First off, the engineers equip a spacecraft with parts hardened to survive radiation or use materials that are not susceptible to particle strikes. They use layered aluminum or titanium, for example, which slow down and prevent energetic particles from reaching the cargo.Testing A SpacecraftThe Radiation Effects Facility is capable of imitating varying amounts of radiation. Engineers use computer models to trace how much radiation a spacecraft will face during its journey and when it arrives at its destination.Before launch, a spacecraft goes through testing in the radiation facility. A component will be placed in a room where it will be blasted with a medley of energetic particles to see if it will survive radiation throughout its mission.The engineers also watch out for slow degradation due to long-term exposure to mild but constant radiation.After testing, the engineers might add shielding if needed. Shielding adds bulk and weight, raising fuel needs.However, an encounters the most energetic particles would be a death sentence to a spacecraft. According to calculations, there is a once every 1,000 days chance that a traveling spacecraft would encounter such a blow.In such a case, a common strategy at NASA is to pack multiples of the same parts that work together simultaneously. If one part stops working, the other will be able to continue the mission.”Refining our models of space radiation ultimately helps us make better selection of devices,” said Michael Xapsos, a member of the Project Scientist Team at NASA’s Space Environment Testbeds.”With more data, engineers can make better trades between risk, cost, and performance in the electronic devices they pick.”At the end f June, NASA will launch the Space Environment Testbeds, which will investigate space environment and determine how it will impact hardware performance.

August 3, 2009 – Northeast Radiology reported it received the first-in-the-nation American College of Radiology (ACR) Accreditation for its high-field, extremity, open MRIs located in Danbury, Conn. and Mount Kisco, N.Y., featuring the MSK Extreme MRI from ONI Medical Systems.Northeast Radiology worked closely with the ACR to meet the standards of excellence for extremity, open MRI. When a patient needs an MRI for their knee, hand, wrist, elbow, foot, or ankle, they can sit in a reclining chair while placing only the body part needing imaging inside the scanner. The patient can read a book or listen to music. Parents or guardians appreciate that they can sit next to a child and interact while the child has a comfortable MRI.“I have found that the high-field, extremity, open MRI is especially suited for claustrophobic or pediatric patients,” explained Kei Doi, M.D., musculoskeletal radiologist for Northeast Radiology. “It is an extremely comfortable examination and the feedback we’ve received from our patients has been favorable.”ACR accreditation demonstrates a commitment to quality patient care and is recognized for its value by major health care providers. ACR awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation of the practice. Evaluations are conducted by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in their field. They assess the qualifications of the personnel and the adequacy of facility equipment. The surveyors report their findings to the ACR’s Committee on Accreditation which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report.For more information: www.nerad.com and www.onimri.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Focused Ultrasound Therapy | July 10, 2019 Insightec’s Exablate Neuro Approved With GE Signa Premier MRI in U.S. and Europe GE Healthcare and Insightec announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval and CE mark for Insightec’s… read more Related Content News | Neuro Imaging | July 05, 2019 Delta T1 Maps Provide Quantitative, Automated Solution to Assess Brain Tumor Burden Imaging Biometrics LLC (IB) a subsidiary of IQ-AI Ltd., is highlighting a recently published study in the American… read more
A martyrdom declaration exempts the saintly candidate from the beatification requirement that the Vatican confirm a miracle attributed to his or her intercession. A second miracle is usually needed to be canonized.Romero was killed by right-wing death squads — presumably baptized Catholics from the overwhelmingly Roman Catholic El Salvador — who vehemently opposed his preaching against the repression of the poor by the army at the start of the country’s 1980-1992 civil war. Romero was gunned down on March 24, 1980, as he celebrated Mass in a hospital chapel in San Salvador.Romero’s sainthood case had been held up for years by the Vatican, primarily due to opposition from conservative Latin American churchmen who feared his perceived association with liberation theology would embolden the movement that holds that Jesus’ teachings require followers to fight for social and economic justice.It was also delayed over related questions about whether Romero was killed out of hatred for his faith or his politics. If killed for his politics, it was argued, he couldn’t be declared a martyr of the faith.In the end, Pope Francis decreed that Romero was killed as a martyr out of hatred for the faith — or “in odium fidei.” But the decree confirmed the acceptance of a new understanding that martyrs can be killed, even by church-going Catholics, out of hatred for their Gospel-inspired work in favor of the poor and disenfranchised, said Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, the postulator or main proponent of Romero’s cause. “If in the past the term ‘in odium fidei’ was strictly linked to the faith … today it is filled with the great themes of charity, justice and peace,” Paglia told reporters last week.Behind that new understanding is the exhortation from the Second Vatican Council, the 1962-65 meetings that brought the church into the 20th century, for pastors to get out of the sacristy and work for social justice causes, particularly for the neediest, he said.The bishops of Latin America took that message to heart and in the years after Vatican II developed an entire spiritual and pastoral program — crystalized in liberation theology — that focused on the church’s “preferential option for the poor,” he said.“The Latin American church is the church that first — and more than any other — understood this perspective of Vatican II,” Paglia said. “It’s impossible to understand Romero without Vatican II.”That said, Romero isn’t the first to be declared a martyr under this new understanding of the word.St. Maximilian Kolbe, a Polish priest who traded his life for that of a married man at Auschwitz in 1941, was beatified under normal procedures in 1971. But when St. John Paul II canonized him in 1982, he announced that he would be venerated as a martyr. Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober For decades, officials insisted the death was accidental. But the case was reopened in 2010 after a former priest who had been riding with the bishop said their car had been forced off the road.Last year, a court sentenced two former military officials to life in prison for the crime, which was one of the most notorious of the country’s Dirty War.The Rev. Gustavo Gutierrez, the father of liberation theology, said 20th century martyrs like Romero and Angelelli “were assassinated by baptized Christians, who called themselves Christian.”He said the Latin American church now considers that martyrs are those who are killed for their love of God, the church and its people.“This Latin American martyrdom has helped something — for justice, for the love of people,” he told a Vatican press conference recently. “I think something has changed.”___Follow Nicole Winfield at www.twitter.com/nwinfieldCopyright © The Associated Press.

The upcoming beatification of El Salvador Archbishop Oscar Romero is doing more than just giving Latin America its long-awaited saint-in-waiting. It has helped redefine the Catholic Church’s concept of martyrdom and paved the way for others killed for doing God’s work to follow in Romero’s saint-making footsteps. (AP Photo/Luis Romero, File) Comments Share Arizona families, Arizona farms: working to produce high-quality milk More recently, an Italian priest, the Rev. Giuseppe “Pino” Puglisi, was beatified as a martyr in 2013 after being gunned down by mobsters in a bid to silence his anti-Mafia preaching.In both cases, a more expansive definition of martyrdom was used: Kolbe presented himself to his killers to spare the life of a young father, an act of immense charity. Puglisi was gunned down because of his preaching about justice.“They wanted to kill an incarnate faith, a faith informed by charity, a faith informed by justice,” Paglia said. “And in Romero all of this appears with great clarity and evidence.”Paglia says Romero’s beatification has now provided a “fairly robust opening” for similar martyrs, particularly from Latin America.In fact, around the same time that Romero was declared a martyr, the beatification process began for his friend, the Rev. Rutilio Grande — the inspiration for his ministry in favor of the poor. Grande was a Jesuit similarly gunned down by El Salvador’s right-wing death squads, and he is also being considered for beatification as a martyr.Recently, the Vatican gave the green light for the martyrdom beatification process to begin for a contemporary of Francis’ from Argentina, La Rioja Bishop Enrique Angelelli. An avowed leftist, Angelelli was killed Aug. 4, 1976 in a car crash, shortly after Argentina’s military seized power and began a crackdown on suspected leftist “subversives.” VATICAN CITY (AP) — The upcoming beatification of El Salvador Archbishop Oscar Romero is doing more than just giving Latin America its long-awaited saint-in-waiting. It has helped redefine the Catholic Church’s concept of martyrdom and paved the way for others killed for doing God’s work to follow in Romero’s saint-making footsteps.Traditionally, the Catholic Church recognizes martyrs as people who were killed for refusing to renounce their faith, often during bouts of anti-Christian persecution. It assumes that the killer intended to kill out of hatred for the person’s belief in Christ, such as the many Christian martyrs being killed today in the Mideast at the hands of Islamic extremists.

“With the proliferation of mobile devices in a highly connected society such as Singapore, it is not surprising that 88 percent of the respondents would frequently book their leisure trips online while 72% would purchase their travel insurance online. What is disturbing is that close to 30% of the survey respondents have travelled without insurance but wish they hadn’t. We delved further and found that half of them travelled thrice or more in a year, incurring a higher exposure to travel mishaps without the safety net provided by travel insurance. The findings reinforce our push to educate consumers on the benefits of travel insurance and also provide 2 useful tips to help our customers travel smarter and be better prepared for their trips,” said Greg Dodds, Country President of Chubb Insurance Singapore Limited.Jon Ford, Vice President & Regional Head of Travel, Asia Pacific for Chubb, commented, “We are constantly seeking to understand Singapore travellers’ attitudes towards travel insurance and their motivation for purchase. As a responsible insurer, we also want to identify potential travel mishaps that they are likely to encounter so that we can tailor our travel insurance product to provide relevant and timely coverage. By conducting surveys, coupled with an innovative approach to product development and testing, we are committed to meeting the evolving needs of today’s consumers.”Source = Chubb’s Travel Insurance Chubb’s Travel Survey reveals four Singapore leisure travel trendsChubb today revealed four trends pertaining to leisure travel in Singapore. From November to December last year, 1, 998 Singapore travellers participated in an online survey conducted by Chubb Travel Insurance.Their responses uncovered the following insights:Seventy-nine percent of Singapore respondents travelled twice a year ormore, across all ages and gender.– Singapore travellers continued to be avid travellers despite the slowingeconomy during the last quarter of the year. Although this was a mere 2%percent drop from a similar survey done in 2014, it reinforced the fact thatSingapore travellers have a large appetite for vacations overseas. Theadditional public holiday from the SG50 celebration also had a part to play.Their vacations overseas have not been totally incident-free as 80% of therespondents had experienced a travel mishap, up from 75% in 2014.– Flight delays continued to occupy the top spot. Falling ill was the nextmost common incident, followed by trip postponement or cancellation.The survey respondents also indicated that theft (52%) was their top travelfear, followed by being injured in an accident (44%) and then loss or delay ofluggage (43%).– It appears to be a trend for younger respondents (those less than 30 yearsold) to be most worried about travel inconvenience such as theft and lossor delay of luggage. This is in contrast to the older respondents of 40 yearsand above, who were worried most about suffering an injury and falling ill.This is a similar finding in the 2014’s survey results.Thirty percent of the survey respondents have travelled without insurancebut wish they hadn’t.– This is an increase from 23% last year.
in Daily Dose, Headlines, News Low Homeownership Rates Push Homebuilders into Rental Market homeownership rates Lennar rentals 2015-03-20 Samantha Guzman Lennar homebuilder made a big move when they decided to enter the rental market after disappointing homeownership rates. Now, according to a report from Bloomberg News that risk could be paying off, influencing other homebuilders to make the jump and increase their rental properties.The business news company reports, Lennar opened its first community of single-family rental homes this month in Sparks, Nevada, and has a construction pipeline of 20,000 apartments exceeding $5.5 billion, the Miami-based company said today.“We’ve seen and continue to see outsized improvement in the rental market in terms of low vacancies and higher rental rates,” Chief Executive Officer Stuart Miller said on Lennar’s earnings conference call Thursday. “The inability of the American family to access the mortgage market” is forcing many families to consider renting single-family homes because they aren’t able to buy.The U.S. homeownership rate fell to its lowest level in 20 years at the end of 2014 at the same time the rental housing vacancy rate dropped to its smallest share since 1993, according to the Census Bureau. Demand has shifted toward rentals as millions of homeowners lost properties to foreclosure and potential buyers couldn’t afford to own real estate or had trouble qualifying for loans.Sales and construction of new homes remain below historical averages. Single-family home starts plunged 15 percent in February from the previous month to an annual pace of 593,000 as bad weather slowed development, the Commerce Department reported this week. The average since 1995 has been 1.04 million.Institutional investors have purchased more than 528,000 single-family rental homes for $68 billion since 2011, creating a new asset class in what has been a mom and pop industry, according to a report this month by Haendel St. Juste, an analyst at Morgan Stanley. Most of the houses bought by landlords such as Blackstone Group LP’s Invitation Homes, with 47,000 rentals, and American Homes 4 Rent, with 35,000, have been foreclosures, which cost less than the new houses Lennar is offering.Lennar held a grand opening March 14 of model houses at Frontera at Pioneer Meadows, an 80-home community near Reno, Nevada. Rents will start at $1,399 for the two-, three- and four-bedroom properties with amenities such as finished yards, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and washer-dryers.The single-family rentals are an experimental “hybrid between our for-sale and our multifamily apartment community program,” Miller said on the call. “If the rental concept doesn’t work as well as we’d like, we can always convert to a for-sale platform.”Lennar’s offering of houses for lease “may be a wise business move since first-time mortgage availability remains constrained versus historical norms,” Jay McCanless, an analyst with Sterne Agee & Leach Inc. said in a March 16 note to clients.Toll Brothers Inc., the largest builder of luxury homes, has also entered the rental-apartment and student-housing business as a hedge against uneven demand for new-home purchases.Lennar on Thursday reported better-than-expected net income for the three months through February of $115 million, or 50 cents a share, up from $78.1 million, or 35 cents, a year earlier. New orders climbed 18 percent to 5,287 homes and increased 25 percent in value to $1.8 billion.Lennar was little changed Thursday, closing at $49.65. The shares are up 11 percent this year, compared with a 3.5 percent gain for the 22-member Bloomberg homebuilding index.(Reporting by John Gittelsohn) March 20, 2015 596 Views Share
