Quickthinking resident helps limit damage in Sunnyside house fire

first_imgA quick-thinking resident helped limit the damage from a bedroom fire at a home in the Sunnyside neighborhood Saturday morning, according to the Vancouver Fire Department.The fire was reported at 6 a.m. at 6003 N.E. 112th St., according to paramedic-firefighter Kevin Stromberg. He said crews arriving seven minutes later found smoke and fire coming out of an upstairs bedroom on the rear of the house and through an aggressive interior attack were able to contain the fire to that one bedroom.The firefighters were assisted by the quick actions of a woman who lived in the house. Before she evacuated the house with two cats, she was able to close the door to the burning room.Stromberg said her actions “drastically reduced the spread of the fire and the spread of the smoke.”“It was very good thinking on her part,” he said.No one was injured, and the woman declined assistance from the Red Cross.Twenty firefighters from the Vancouver Fire Department, Clark County Fire District 6 and Clark County Fire & Rescue were on scene.The fire is being investigated by the Clark County Fire Marshal’s Office.last_img read more

N Korea deplores US sanctions

first_imgIn this file photo taken on 12 June 2018, US president Donald Trump (R) and North Korea`s leader Kim Jong Un shake hands following a signing ceremony during their historic US-North Korea summit, at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore. Photo: AFPNorth Korea has condemned the United States over its latest sanctions measures, warning the policy could “block the path to denuclearisation on the Korean peninsula forever”.The warning from the North on Sunday came days after the US said it was imposing sanctions on three senior North Korean officials over human rights abuses.The sanctioned officials include Choe Ryong Hae, who has been considered a right-hand man to leader Kim Jong Un.In a statement carried by the official KCNA news agency, the North praised president Donald Trump for his efforts to improve relations with Pyongyang, but said the US state department was “bent on bringing the DPRK-US relations back to the status of last year which was marked by exchanges of fire”.The statement by the policy research director of the Institute for American Studies of the foreign ministry accused the US of “deliberate provocation” over the sanctions on the three officials.If Washington believes the policy of increased sanctions and pressure would force the North to give up its nuclear weapons, “it will count as greatest miscalculation, and it will block the path to denuclearisation on the Korean peninsula forever”, the statement added.At a historic summit in Singapore in June, US president Donald Trump and Kim signed a vaguely-worded statement on denuclearisation.But little progress has been made since then, with Washington pushing to maintain sanctions against the North until its “final, fully verified denuclearisation” and Pyongyang condemning US demands as “gangster-like”.In actions required by Congress, the Trump administration said on Monday it would seize any US assets of the three officials over their roles in suppressing freedom of speech.Such restrictions may have little impact on officials in one of the world’s most closed countries but will have a clear symbolic force as North Korea seeks greater acceptance by the United States.last_img

Lithiumion battery with new chemistry could power electric vehicles

first_img The researchers, Jusef Hassoun, Ki-Soo Lee, Yang-Kook Sun, and Bruno Scrosati, from the University of Rome Sapienza in Rome, Italy, and Hanyang University in Seoul, South Korea, have published their study on the advanced lithium-ion battery in a recent issue of the Journal of the American Chemical Society.Their study builds on the team’s previous research involving the development of novel, advanced lithium-ion battery chemistries. The key to the high performance lies in the battery’s electrode materials. Here, the scientists use a tin-carbon anode and a cathode made of lithium manganese oxide doped with nickel and cobalt. As far as the researchers know, a lithium-ion battery with this unique electrode combination has never been reported before.“The battery is based on a new combination between a high-voltage cathode and a nanostructured anode material,” Scrosati told PhysOrg.com. “The battery operates with a very stable capacity at high discharge rates with no significant capacity losses throughout the entire cycling test.”The new electrode materials provide certain advantages for the overall battery. As the researchers previously demonstrated, the tin-carbon anode has a high cycling life of several hundred cycles without a reduction in capacity, as well as discharge-charge efficiency approaching 100%. By applying a surface treatment to the anode, the researchers could further improve the capacity.As for the new manganese-based cathode materials, they are more abundant, less expensive, more environmentally friendly, and have a higher stability at low temperatures compared to the lithium cobalt oxide cathode used in conventional lithium-ion batteries. Also, in designing the new cathode, the researchers carefully optimized the composition, particle size, shape, morphology, and tap density.“The battery has: 1) a high volumetric and gravimetric energy density; 2) a high rate capability due to the nano-structured characteristics of the electrode materials; 3) an excellent cycle life; and 4) low cost, due to the use of electrode materials based on abundant elements,” Scrosati said.The cathode’s high voltage and high capacity provides the new battery with a higher energy density (170 Wh/kg at average discharge voltage of 4.2 volts) than conventional lithium-ion batteries.“The conventional lithium-ion batteries have an energy density of about 120-150 Wh/kg, depending on the used cathode material,” Scrosati said. “Generally, commercial lithium battery cells using layer structure cathode materials, for instance, NCA and NMC, deliver from 100 to 150 Wh/kg.”Altogether, the high energy density, stable cycle life, and high rate capacity suggest that the battery looks very promising for powering electric vehicles.“In summary, with respect to those using conventional lithium-ion batteries, electric vehicles using our battery may assure: 1) a longer driving range (210 km/charge vs. 150 km/charge due to the higher energy density; 2) a higher top speed; 3) a lower cost; and 4) better overall performance especially at low temperatures,” Scrosati said.

DOI:10.1021/ja110522x Explore further (PhysOrg.com) — While car companies race to develop electric and hybrid electric vehicles, one of the biggest challenges they face is finding a suitable energy storage system. Lithium-ion batteries, which currently power a variety of smaller consumer electronics devices, could ideally fill this role. But at the moment, they require further improvements in terms of energy density and power density in order to be used effectively in electric vehicles. Now in a new study, researchers have developed a novel type of lithium-ion battery with an anode and cathode that involve new, advanced battery chemistries, greatly improving the battery’s performance and likely making it suitable for electric vehicles.

Study of diversity training suggests it doesnt lead to much change

first_img Citation: Study of diversity training suggests it doesn’t lead to much change (2019, April 2) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-04-diversity-doesnt.html © 2019 Science X Network Credit: CC0 Public Domain Explore further Journal information: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Survey shows more work needs to be done on diversity and inclusion in workplacescenter_img Diversity training has been in the news a lot lately—though it is not clear how well it works. At its core, diversity training involves classes meant to teach employees the rules involved in treatment of people that are different from them—how to not be racist or how to not treat women as second-class citizens, for example. In this new effort, the researchers sought to determine if diversity training actually results in changes in the workplace.The researchers designed their own diversity training program and sent it out to willing organizations —in all, they got 3,016 employees to volunteer for the training in 63 countries. The training was focused on highlighting stereotypes and how they can lead to certain behaviors, and ways employees could overcome biases. The researchers then followed up by measuring changes that resulted due to the training.The researchers found little evidence of behavior change in any of the organizations where employees had taken the diversity training program. In the program geared toward reducing biases against women, the researchers found that employees were willing to admit such biases, they just were not willing to do anything about them. They also found employees not in the U.S. described themselves as more supportive of women after the training. In the U.S., the only change was that female employees expressed more willingness to mentor other women.In the part of the study focusing on racial bias, the researchers found that employees were willing to admit having racial biases, but no measurable changes in behavior were seen during follow-up. They also found that disadvantaged employees were more willing to mentor others.The researchers conclude by suggesting that organizations need to partner with research organizations to find ways to improve diversity training and to actively follow up to see if it does any good.

DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1816076116 A team of researchers from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School has found through experimentation that diversity training does not generally result in much change in work environments—though it might lead women and minorities to strengthen mentoring programs. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the group describes their study, which involved giving a training program to 3,016 employees in 63 countries and the impact it had on them.

Artificial Intelligence | July 03, 2019 VIDEO: Artificial Intelligence May Assist in Pediatric Imaging Sudhen Desai, M.D., FSIR, interventional radiologist at Texas Children’s Hospital, editor of IR Quarterly for the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) and on the Board of Directors for the Society of Physician Entrepreneurs, explained how artificial intelligence (AI) can assist in pediatric imaging and the pitfalls of training AI systems. He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

The technology uses high-dose alpha particles to kill cancer cells, but has a very short tissue penetration, so it can be placed very close to critical structures without causing collateral damage to healthy tissue. He discussed this technology in sessions at the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) 2019 meeting.last_img read more

Five things you should know about Chiang Mai

first_imgSource = ETB Travel News: Brittney Levinson Image credit: Brittney Levinson ETB Travel NewsDescribed as Thailand’s ‘Rose of the North’, Chiang Mai is one of the few places in Thailand where you can experience traditional and modern Thai culture seamlessly co-existing. Whether it’s in the form of lush green mountains, historic city temples or five-star luxury hotels, Chiang Mai’s beauty is undeniable. I recently spent some time in the city while attending Thailand Travel Mart Plus 2016, which was held in Chiang Mai for the very first time.It’s really no wonder I fell in love with Chiang Mai almost instantly; the friendly, laid-back nature of the locals is akin to the easy-going Australian culture. The moment I stepped out of the airport I was told that Chiang Mai is very different to Phuket or Bangkok – things move at a slower, more easy-going pace and it’s something the locals are definitely proud of.Five things you should know about Chiang Mai1. Luxury accommodation won’t break the bank137 Pillars House Chiang Mai. Image credit: Brittney Levinson ETB Travel NewsThere is no shortage of luxury accommodation in Chiang Mai and it is much more affordable than you would think. The Akyra Manor exudes luxury, right in the heart of the hip Artist Quarter of Chiang Mai. One night in a stylish Deluxe Suite with all the luxury trimmings, including a breathtaking bathtub on the balcony, costs as little as AU$250.The renowned 137 Pillars House Chiang Mai blends traditional and modern architecture to deliver a hidden sanctuary for guests seeking a luxurious Thai holiday. A night’s stay in this luxury haven will set you back around AU$500, complete with daily breakfast, a welcome drink and fruit basket, and free Wi-Fi throughout the property.2. You can hike in a national park by day and have fancy rooftop drinks by nightBeer Lab, Chiang Mai. Image credit: Brittney Levinson ETB Travel NewsAdventure seekers won’t be disappointed with what Chiang Mai has to offer, just as sophisticated types won’t be disappointed with the abundance of unique spots for a cocktail. Flight of the Gibbon offers ziplining tours about an hour out of the city and it is definitely worth a visit. Or head to Doi Inthanon National Park, home to Thailand’s highest mountain, for a guided hiking tour, where you can learn about the history and culture of the area while getting some gentle exercise.The best way to end a physically enduring day is with a drink (or three) at one of the city’s many bars. The Akyra Manor boasts an incredible rooftop bar with an impressive menu of cocktails, including classics with a unique twist.3. The food is next levelAmong the crowd favourites, like Pad Thai, green curry and sticky rice, Northern Thailand has its own unique dishes you would be a fool not to try. Don’t leave without trying the spicy Chiang Mai sausage and Khao soi, a soup-like dish topped with deep-fried crispy noodles. You’ll also find an abundance of Thai fruits, such as durian and mangosteen. And take my advice, every time you see a stall selling roti: stop, drop and eat. Seriously, you will never tire of light, crispy roti, covered in sweetened condensed milk and sugar – it’s the best.Khao soi. Image by Takeaway via Wikimedia Commons4. The facilities are state of the artAmong the beautiful, tradition architecture in Chiang Mai, there is also high quality, modern facilities and infrastructure. Built in 2013, the Chiang Mai International Exhibition and Convention Centre (CMECC) is one of the largest convention and exhibition centres in Southeast Asia, with 60,000 square metres of usable space. The centre recently welcomed guests from all over the globe for this year’s Thailand Travel Mart Plus.And even the roads are top quality. Driving up towards the famous Doi Suthep, the roads were modern, well signed and secured with barriers. It looked as though we were driving up a mountain in Australia.5. It’s a gateway to many destinationsThanks to growing air and land connectivity within the Greater Mekong Subregion, Chiang Mai is a gateway to key cities in Cambodia, Lao PDR., Myanmar, Vietnam. As well as being an ideal entry and exit point to neighbouring countries, Chiang Mai is also a doorway to Northern Thailand’s lesser-know cities, such as Chiang Rai, Mae Hong Son and Nakhorn Sawan.

It will be another good barometer for us he sai

first_img“It will be another good barometer for us,” he said. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling 0 Comments   Share   But it’s better to have to deal with prosperity than a disappointing season, and right now the Cardinals appear to be peaking, though Arians doesn’t believe that to be the case.“I think we’re getting better each week,” Arians said. “I think our best football is still out there; we left way too many points on the field this weekend. “December football is what it’s all about. You want games to matter in December, and that’s what people remember.”As the calendar turns, though, the Cardinals are in good position to be remembered. Up next is a road game at Philadelphia, another team that is in the playoff race but needs to finish strong. It’s a big game for both teams, and offers another chance for the Cardinals to prove that they are a legitimate playoff contender.During their winning streak, they’ve beaten good teams and won on the road, but have yet to beat a good team on the road. Arians, who is confident in his team’s postseason chances because of “the way it feels right now,” knows a win over the Eagles would go a long way toward improving the team’s reputation as well as its postseason chances. center_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo TEMPE, Ariz. — Bruce Arians was understandably pleased with how his team played in Sunday’s 40-11 rout of the Indianapolis Colts.“Basically, after watching the film, it was a doggone good outing by everybody, especially defensively,” the coach said Monday. Arians added that the offense should have scored more than it did and noted that the blocked field goal in the first quarter wasn’t good, but overall he had little to complain about. The offense piled up 410 yards behind quarterback Carson Palmer’s fourth-straight good game, and the defense limited the Colts to just 4.3 yards per play. It was a team effort; with the blocked field goal being the only real blemish on what otherwise was a good-looking win. Following arguably his team’s most complete game of the season, Arians said this year’s Cardinals remind him a bit of the Colts team he coached last season as well as some of the Steelers teams he was part of, as far as the camaraderie and willingness to sacrifice for the betterment of the team. And that team, with a 7-4 record and four straight wins, has to be feeling pretty good about itself. One of the challenges they’ll face down the stretch, besides opposing teams, is their own success, because with success comes recognition, and with recognition can come a sense of complacency. Dealing with prosperity is something the Cardinals have not had much experience with, and Arians knows it is a challenge his team faces. “The noise level will get higher, pats on the back and all that stuff,” he said. “You start reading the press clippings and feeling the pats on your back and you open yourself up for disaster.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

Oracabessa Jamaica – Reported by Elite Traveler

first_imgOracabessa, Jamaica – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle MagazieWith two new airport openings it will now be more glamorous – and easier than ever – to flit in, out and about Jamaica. In conjunction with Island Outpost’s Jakes in Treasure Beach, Lionel Densham Aerodrome opened on December 16th with an event hosted by Jamaica’s Prime Minister, Bruce Golding; and Ian Fleming International Airport, Jamaica’s third international entry point, is set to launch on January 12th, just 10 minutes away from the newly-reopened GoldenEye Hotel & Resort in Oracabessa.Ian Fleming International Airport Jamaica opened its first international airport in February, 1947. At the time Montego Bay Airport (today known as Sangster International) was the lively hub for island-hopping glitterati. Now, a month shy of that airport’s 64th anniversary, the best-loved bolt hole of the Caribbean will receive its third international airport with the launch of Ian Fleming International. The airport will be officially opened by Prime Minister Bruce Golding with a 4pm launch event on January 12th, and will be attended by Fleming’s nieces, Lucy and Kate, as well as Island Outpost founder and music mogul, Chris Blackwell.The airport formerly known as Boscobel Aerodrome has been updated and expanded to accommodate private jets and other small commercial aircraft. It has also received a fitting name change – Ian Fleming was not only a fixture of the area (his Jamaica home is the idyllic GoldenEye Hotel & Resort) but he also helped put Jamaica on the map during the glamorous 50s and 60s. He and good friend Noel Coward would host everyone from heads of state to Hollywood royalty between his own estate and Coward’s nearby cliff-top home, Firefly.Providing quick and easy access to Jamaica’s beautiful North Coast, the launch of Ian Fleming International means that the phrase “Let’s pop down to GoldenEye for lunch and a swim,” is no longer simply wishful thinking! The airport will be able to park six international aircraft with a maximum wingspan of 55 feet (16.8 meters) and maximum length of 65 feet (20 meters), plus three small domestic planes. Also available will be JetA1 and AvGas fuel. Initially, international flights will be limited to private aircraft, with a domestic shuttle service between Jamaica’s other airports set to launch at a future date.Lionel Densham Aerodrome For guests wishing to fly to Jakes, Lionel Densham Aerodrome is a new private airstrip located 10 minutes away from the resort. Exclusively for Jakes guests, it is the first aerodrome in Jamaica to be wholly owned by a resort property, to be used as an amenity for guests. The grass-surfaced strip is 2,300 feet long (701 meters) and is ideal for single-engine light aircraft. Four- and six-seater Cessnas will be available to transfer guests between Jakes and other Island Outpost properties, as well as to and from the main airports at Montego Bay and Kingston.All flights will be private charters and part of a VIP package, which will include a complimentary bottle of champagne and spa treatments. But with rates starting at US$275/night for VIP flight and stay packages, this luxe add-on won’t break the bank! Reservations can be booked through Jakes, or Island Outpost’s central reservations. Guests wishing to land their own planes at Lionel Densham should request permission prior to their stay.The eponymous airstrip pays homage to Jamaica’s first aviator, Lionel Densham – the great uncle of Jakes’ owner Jason Henzell. He was a local eccentric who first came to Jamaica in 1929 while navigating a yacht for some wealthy Americans. When the stock market crashed, so did the yachting job, and Lionel returned to Jamaica with his only sibling, Basil. Lionel was the first person living in Jamaica to own his own plane, but was perhaps a little more famous for his eccentricities. When a friend stopped to find out if he was having engine trouble he said: “Oh no old boy, just frying an egg,” and sure enough that is just what he was doing, with his frying pan balanced precariously on his engine block.last_img read more
