Dinosaur With One Finger on Each Hand Discovered

first_imgThe majority of therapods had three fingers per hand. The T. Rex only had two, but still managed to make due. Old Linhenykus monodactylus, on the other, um, hand, looks a little less menacing, thanks to the odd single digit construction of its arms–the first dinosaur to be discovered with that unusual feature.Linhenykus was discovered in northern China, a hotbed for fossil discovery. According to scientists, it likely dates back to around 80 million years ago. Early meat eating dinos actually had five fingers, shedding them over the intervening tens of millions of years. Linhenykus’s fingers, meanwhile, were likely used to help ferret our termites. Evolution does some weird, messed up stuff, man. Check out the Linhenykus monodactylus. It’s a therapod dinosaur–the same group that gave us such terrifying meat eaters as the Velociraptor and the Tyrannosaurus Rex. last_img read more

County mulls public defense

first_imgClark County is considering significantly reorganizing how it carries out one of its constitutionally mandated functions.Deputy County Manager Bob Stevens has proposed a measure that would create a new office in Clark County with two full-time attorneys to represent individuals accused of felonies who have been deemed too poor to afford private legal representation.Under the state and federal constitutions, indigent defendants facing misdemeanor or felony charges are guaranteed an attorney at public expense. In Washington, most counties contract out services to private attorneys, but more counties are becoming increasingly involved in directly administering public defense.Stevens’ proposal would put Clark County alongside 12 other counties in Washington that have offices of public defense. But the reorganization requires approval from the county council, which has twice delayed voting on the reorganization so councilors could question its potential costs and impacts.The county currently has 57 contracts with 46 private law firms and attorneys to provide indigent defense. However, Stevens said that seven public defense attorneys who contracted with the county have recently retired. He said the county had the lowest-ever number of firms apply last year for contracts, partially because pay hasn’t increased in 10 years. The result, he said, is the county is projecting that 300 indigent defense cases this year that won’t be covered by currently contracted law firms.“It’s difficult to put yourself at the mercy of the market all the time,” Stevens said. He added that providing county public defenders can make up for shortages of contract attorneys and the reorganization won’t affect the budget.last_img read more

Organized retail crime Local criminals on a shopping spree

first_imgA man identified by Safeway as Rick Clark leaves the Safeway store in downtown Vancouver with $380.92 in whiskey and cognac around 8 p.m. on July 21, 2012. Clark was arrested on suspicion of multiple felony liquor theft charges in Clark County, Safeway said. “John” had Alli diet pills that he needed to sell. He met a 34-year-old Vancouver man on May 22 and told him that he lifted the pills from a Rite Aid store and was chased out by security. The buyer paid and told him he wanted more.Three days later, the buyer met “John” — not his real name — in the -Hazel Dell Walmart parking lot where he bought $750 worth of items that were purportedly stolen from retail stores.The twist: “John” is a private investigator working for Safeway, and the buy was a sting. His name was withheld for his security and to protect ongoing investigations.That day, Yevgeniy Smirnov was taken into custody. His wife, Lyudmila Smirnov, was detained after detectives and private investigators served a search warrant at the couple’s home where they found “numerous amounts of different merchandise” including Crest White Strips, Rogaine and air fresheners.These episodes are all detailed in a probable cause affidavit filed by Clark County sheriff’s Detective Tom Yoder that was obtained by The Columbian in July.last_img read more

Government to consult on measures to tackle pension cold calling

first_imgAutumn Statement 2016: Chancellor Philip Hammond has announced plans to tackle pension cold calling.In his Autumn Statement, Hammond said that the government plans to publish a consultation on options to tackle pension scams including a ban on cold calling in relation to pensions, giving organisations greater powers to block suspicious transfers and making it harder for scammers to abuse small self-administered schemes.Tom McPhail, head of retirement policy at Hargreaves Lansdown, said: “Today’s announcement of a ban on cold calling is a welcome fight-back against the criminals who try to steal investors’ retirement savings. Banning cold calling won’t eradicate the problem but it will help in two important ways: It will create a punishable offence at the outset before they have even got their hands on investors’ money. Hopefully this will deter some would-be fraudsters; it will also send a clear unambiguous message: if someone cold calls you about your pension then they are up to no good.“Additional measures being explored, such as making it harder to set up pensions in the first place and giving legitimate pension companies more latitude to block transfers when they suspect fraud are also important developments which the industry has been calling for.“This is not a complete solution; fraudsters will not stop targeting investors’ pensions. Policymakers and regulators will need to continue to listen to and work with the pension and investment industry to address future challenges.”Hugh Nolan, president of the Society of Pension Professionals, and director at Spence and Partners, added: “We very much welcome the continued efforts to protect people from unwelcome cold calls, but more importantly from pension scams, which are financially devastating for the victims.“We are delighted by the recognition that pension providers are an invaluable defence for consumers and the extra tools that will be given to the industry to help us protect our members and policyholders. Unfortunately, we are not sure that a ban on cold calling would be effective as there is an obvious risk that the scammers will simply ignore it, since by definition they aren’t exactly law abiding citizens.”last_img read more

Eating walnuts may help fight breast cancer

first_imgConsumption of walnuts may help suppress growth and survival of breast cancer, a study claims. The study, published in the journal Nutrition Research, found that consumption of two ounces of walnuts a day for about two weeks significantly changed gene expression in confirmed breast cancers. In this first clinical trial, women with breast lumps large enough for research and pathology biopsies were recruited and randomised to walnut consuming or control groups. Immediately following biopsy collection, women in the walnut group began to consume two ounces of walnuts per day until follow-up surgery. Pathological studies confirmed that lumps were breast cancer in all women who remained in the trial. The study showed activation of pathways that promote apoptosis or programmed cell death and cell adhesion and inhibition of pathways that promote cell proliferation and migration.last_img read more

Two thieves arrested in restaurant after failed attempt to blend in

first_imgPlaya del Carmen, Q.R. — Armed robbers who reportadly assaulted two people were arrested in a seafood restaurant in Playa del Camen.Police say that at around 1:00 p.m. Friday, two men were arrested for an assault that was reported to 911. As police neared the Ejidal neighborhood of the assault, the pair fled in a car.According to preliminary data, emergency number 911 reported an assault in process on the crossing of Juarez and 55 Avenues, for which police intervention was immediately requested. The 911 dispatcher was able to give a description of the alleged criminals and the car in which they fled.When the agents arrived at the scene, witnesses provided them with the physical characteristics of the assailants, so police set up an operation for Ejidal, finding the white Nissan Tsuru car abandoned on a nearby street.Moments later, 911 updated police that the assailants entered a seafood restaurant several blocks from where they were posted. Police responded to the call and after entering the restaurant, managed to locate the two men who tried to hide by mixing in with local diners.Restaurant patrons were surprised to witness the take down. The two men were arrested and presented to the Solidarity Public Security Directorate for the corresponding procedures.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Will Smart Medical Machines Take Us to the Eve of Destruction

first_img It looked bad a half century ago. Real bad. Police dogs lunged at protesters in Alabama; frightened Vietnamese children ran from napalm; a student lay dead on the Kent State campus; an explosion ripped through the Army math building at the UW-Madison campus, killing a physics researcher unlucky to be working nearby in the early morning hours.Barry McGuire, sang incredulously in one of the best hippie songs ever, “Eve of Destruction.” I was a kid then. I believed we were. But I lacked perspective.I hadn’t lived during the Depression of the 1930s. Or World War II with its death camps. Or the first World War with its trench warfare, chlorine clouds and mustard gas.If you believe Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk, we are again on the eve of destruction. Smart machines, they warn, could extinguish the human race. Will modern medicine be the tip of that spear?If we want artificially intelligent machines to help diagnose and treat patients, we must give them knowledge about human anatomy and physiology. We must design smart machines to understand human vulnerability to disease and injury. Are we drawing a blueprint of our own destruction?The fear of artificial intelligence is palpable. But is it reasonable? Does “will” naturally accompany intelligence? Does intelligence inevitably breed sentience? Is intelligence inherently evil?Our definition of machine self-awareness has evolved with the competence of technology. The Turing Test, posed by Alan Turing in 1950 in his paper “Computing Machinery and Intelligence,” stated that a computer was intelligent when people could not distinguish machine from human. Arguably, we passed that point in May 1997 when IBM’s Deep Blue beat reigning world chess champion Garry Kasparov.It turns out machines can fool us quite easily. Today chatbots regularly trick people into believing they are talking to other people. But that doesn’t make those machines intelligent … or malevolent. I am not arguing that smart machines are harmless. Far from it. Keeping humans in the loop is prudent. But doing so could pose an even greater danger to humankind. At least one proven by history. From Hiroshima to Auschwitz, politicians have leveraged advanced technologies to promote their own nefarious agenda.In a song about the protest movement of the 1960s, Buffalo Springfield, in “For What It’s Worth,” sang “Paranoia strikes deep. It starts when you are always afraid. Step out of line and the man comes and takes you away.”In today’s version, it’s artificial intelligence (AI) that is coming.Fear is a powerful motivator. It can lead us to make the wrong decisions. No fear strikes deeper than the fear of the unknown. We’ve amplified our fears with Hollywood projections that accentuate the power of computing and the weakness of people. From Hal to Ex Machina, the myth has become AI.But, in reality, humans are not weak. We are tenacious. Resilient. We are at our best when times are worst. Wouldn’t it be nice, if we got a step or two ahead and reached our potential to solve problems before the circumstances were dire?Computing can help us get there. Medicine can be more efficient, more effective and less costly. We need to explore the possibilities that AI offers. But we need to do so cautiously. If we have learned anything from history, it should be that our noblest creations can destroy. Recall Oppenheimer’s lament following the Trinity test of the A-bomb, his citation of Hindu scripture: “Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.”Aristotle tells us that the brave person “stands firm against the right things for the right end, in the right way, at the right time.” We must be brave when it comes to the development of AI.We should not fear “intelligent” machines. But we should be vigilant.We should fear what people will do with smart machines.

Global Ecotourism takes off as 35 percent

first_imgGlobal Eco-tourism takes off as 35 percentGlobal Eco-tourism takes off as 35 percentAccording to GlobalData, a recognized leader in business information and analytics, the climate change imperative and the rise of responsible travellers is creating a compelling business case for sustainable tourism.The company’s latest report: ‘Top Trends in Sustainable Tourism: An analysis of the key trends in sustainable tourism and the business opportunities they create for the travel and tourism industry‘ reveals that increased awareness of social, economic and environmental sustainability has spread rapidly through the digital world and social media. This has given rise to a new type of tourist, characterized by environmental and cultural sensitivity. Such travellers are more likely to see eco-tourism holidays as a serious option when choosing their next destination and more likely to support businesses and brands that are committed to social values and respect the environment.According to GlobalData’s Q4-2016 consumer survey, 35 percent globally are likely to book eco-tourism holidays. The countries that present the biggest interest in eco-tourism are Malaysia (76 percent), followed by China (67 percent) and Turkey (65 percent). Besides climate change and the rise of eco-conscious consumers, trends such as overtourism, the desire for transformative travel experiences and the growing sharing economy are also driving the shift towards sustainable tourism. This is driving the appeal of eco-holidays among previously untapped consumers.The higher the household income of respondents, the greater the likelihood to book an eco-tourism holiday. Whereas 16 percent of Americans with a household income between $20,000 and $34,000 per annum were likely to book an eco-tourism trip, 57 percent of those whose income exceeds $150,000 said the same.As Konstantina Boutsioukou, Associate Travel & Tourism Analyst at GlobalData comments: “Our findings suggest that changing consumer perceptions across all income segments create opportunities to combine different types of travel. For instance, luxury and eco holidays traditionally belonged at the opposite ends of the tourism industry. However, the renewed interest from the most affluent on eco-holidays has given rise to the new type of travel, known as luxury ecotourism.”Millennials are also leading the way in sustainable tourism, with 41 percent arguing that they are interested in booking an eco-tourism holiday.Boutsioukou continues; “Our results go in hand with general trends that show that millennials are the most eco-conscious consumers, hence driving the need for support of sustainable practices from an array of industries.”With an ever-growing interest in sustainable tourism from the most affluent and arguably the most influential audiences, the industry would be foolish not to capitalise on the sustainability trend, which beyond improved consumer sentiment, offers cost benefits and greater product longevity.Boutsioukou explains; “Such trends present opportunities for airlines, hotels, tour operators and tourism boards to differentiate the products and services they offer on the basis of sustainability and hence attract more customers. In that way, sustainable tourism is seen as a win-win situation as it can be both financially profitable, as well as socially responsible.”Information based on GlobalData’s report: ‘Top Trends in Sustainable Tourism: An analysis of the key trends in sustainable tourism and the business opportunities they create for the travel and tourism industry‘Source = GlobalDatalast_img read more

The Future of Online Closings

first_img Borrowers eClosing Home Homebuyers HOUSING Lenders loans mortgage Online Closings 2019-02-11 Radhika Ojha Share The current movement and excitement surrounding moving real estate closings online is not a new trend. In fact, capturing digital signatures had started gaining traction before the big housing crisis of 2007-2008. But as housing came crashing down and foreclosures reached record highs, lenders shifted from one extreme to another. The last housing crisis undoubtedly crippled innovation in real estate transactions and the title/settlement process. So now, 10 years after the crisis–and amid speculation about when the next housing bubble will burst–what has happened to innovation in the archaic and fragmented world of real estate closings? I would say not enough innovation, disruption, or meaningful movement into a digital platform has occurred over this period. The real estate industry constantly lives in a state of perpetual fear that we are buying at an all-time high, that the next crisis is just around the corner, that if we push innovation and our fears come true, people will challenge mortgage and contract obligations to protect their home and investments. Ultimately, this is the very heart of the problem–housing is intimate. It isn’t some position in a stock. Most people don’t think of real estate as an asset. In their mind, it is their home. Our instinct is always to protect ourselves, our loved ones and our homes. If you spend time talking to consumers about what they really want and expect, they will tell you “a better closing experience.” That doesn’t always mean a fully digital remote eClosing. Sometimes they want to sit next to a trusted professional who explains documents to them–after all, this is often the largest investment of their life. Buying or selling a home can be emotional–and engineers, entrepreneurs, bankers, and the title industry sometimes lose sight of that. Despite these concerns, I am a firm believer that the future of online platforms to manage and conduct real estate closings is promising. But I also think that the industry, despite the exciting momentum, needs to really stop and take the time to understand what consumers and users want. We need to work together to collaborate towards getting the involvement of all the necessary stakeholders. The uncertainty we face today is perpetuated by the fragmentation and silos that we operate in. For instance, banks look at ways to improve mortgage processing but don’t invite their title and settlement vendors into the room. Federal, state, and local government involved in financing and recording real estate transactions consider and implement changes without always leveraging the vast experience of the private sector. I meet with entrepreneurs in the technology space all the time that want to ask me a question or two, because they are building the next great real estate, mortgage or title solution. But all too often, when I ask them what their prospective customers say, they look at me blankly. Government, start-ups, venture capital, title insurance, real estate professionals, and lenders need to work together to identify their respective risks and concerns. We need to look at the opportunities that exist (based on what our customers and clients want) and work to create solutions that take an archaic and fragmented industry into the twenty-first century.

Arizona Cardinals firstround draft pick Robert N

first_imgArizona Cardinals’ first-round draft pick Robert Nkemdiche waits to speak before being introduced to the media, Friday, April 29, 2016, in Tempe, Ariz. Nkemdiche was the Cardinals’ first round, 29th overall, pick in the NFL football draft. (AP Photo/Matt York) Robert Nkemdiche is just days away from donning an Arizona Cardinals uniform and taking the practice field with his new team.The Cardinals made Nkemdiche the 29th overall selection in the 2016 NFL Draft last Thursday and as an organization are thrilled the talented, yet enigmatic defensive tackle from Ole Miss was available to them near the end of the first round.Terry McDonough, the team’s vice president of player personnel, is very involved in the draft process, and says the attraction to Nkemdiche was immediate. Your browser does not support the audio element. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo “He’s always been ‘the guy,’” McDonough said. “Here, he’s not going to be ‘the guy.’ Larry Fitzgerald, Carson Palmer, Patrick Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu, Calais Campbell — they’re ‘the guys.’ So he’s not coming in here as the alpha dog.“All those guys will take him under their wing and fit him into this culture that’s been created by Michael (Bidwill), Steve (Keim) and Bruce (Arians). We feel like we have the support system on the field and off the field. With all the great people we have here, if you’re going to take a ‘chance’ on a guy — I mean you take chances on everybody — this is the kind of guy and the talent that you do it on.”Nkemdiche, along with Arizona’s other five draft picks and 16 undrafted free agents, begins rookie minicamp Friday at the team’s training facility in Tempe. – / 35 “We put more time into him than anyone else, McDonough told Doug and Wolf Tuesday on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. “It almost snowballed from the first time we met him.“When you meet the guy, you’re kind of taken aback by his character and his charisma and his intelligence.”Of course, one of the reasons Nkemdiche was available so late in the first round was a bizarre incident last December when he fell out of a hotel window in Atlanta. He wasn’t hurt, but was charged with marijuana possession and was suspended for the Sugar Bowl.The time the Cardinals spent with Nkemdiche prior to the draft was enough to convince them that the Atlanta hotel incident was inconsistent with the young man’s character.“Brentson Buckner, our defensive line coach, has really strong feelings about Robert,” McDonough said. “So when he was there, it was a pretty easy pick for us.”Nkemdiche was recruited to Ole Miss out of Loganville, Georgia and was the nation’s top overall recruit in the class of 2013 by Rivals.com.Despite the Cardinals’ excitement in landing Nkemdiche, he won’t be counted on to be “the man” immediately. 0 Comments   Share   center_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires LISTEN: Terry McDonough, Cardinals VP of player personnel Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires But his mission would change dramatically if he retains the job in Arizona. He entered the league hell-bent on disproving teams that selected quarterbacks ahead of him. In 2019, he might have to prove the Cardinals were right in sticking by him, that he’s a better NFL quarterback than Murray, regardless of system.By contrast, if the Cardinals select Murray, the diminutive quarterback will have to prove himself to a tough crowd. David Johnson has already stated his preference for the incumbent, saying “I like Josh.” Rosen cultivated great respect from his comportment in 2018, dispelling the myths of aloofness and entitlement. He took the heat, the hits and never threw his teammates under a bus.NFL players aren’t easily impressed, but this is where Rosen moved the meter in 2018. He didn’t have a lot of success on the field, but he won the room. Former Cardinals’ defender Markus Golden signed to play with the Giants and had no reason to chime in on the current situation, but he went out of his way to call Rosen a “great guy and player.”It’s clear that Murray might inherit a skeptical audience, a group that believes their former quarterback was jobbed out of a job. The Cardinals are on notice. They will have as many targets in 2019 as they did victories in 2018.You’ll find them on the backs of Kliff Kingsbury, Steve Keim and whoever emerges as the team’s No. 1 quarterback.Start with Kingsbury, who will turn 40 in August; has no professional coaching experience; was promoted to the top of the NFL after getting fired at Texas Tech; represents a trend gone wild, a glorified play-caller handed one of the 32 toughest jobs in America, shaking the old-boy network to its core. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Kingsbury will be expected to roll out an offense with sizzle, one that puts opposing coordinators on notice and NFL defenses on their heels. He must resemble the success of Sean McVay, a 33-year old head coach who has already been to the Super Bowl. If Kingsbury fails, the bottom will fall out of the tub. It won’t be pretty.Related LinksArizona Sports NFL Mock Draft Tracker: Who’s next for the Cards at No. 1?As Rosen-Murray rumors swirl, winds are calm at Cardinals workoutsArizona Cardinals announce 2019 preseason scheduleCardinals re-sign DT Rodney Gunter, ink 4 more free agentsThat’s because Kingsbury is the antithesis of a guy like Bruce Arians, who waited until age 60 for his first head coaching job. There are grizzled NFL types who would love to see these whippersnappers exposed and expunged. Like Saints coach Sean Payton, who once crossed the picket line to make it to the NFL, who said he looked forward to matching wits with some of these copycat hires.The Saints will host the Cardinals in 2019.The second target will be worn by their franchise quarterback. If the Cardinals stick with Josh Rosen, he will be under great pressure to ascend. The odds are in his favor. Research shows that quarterbacks taken with first round picks from 2014-2017 improved by 57 wins and 161 touchdown passes collectively in their second season. In other words, a taste of experience can work wonders for smart quarterbacks like Rosen. 28 Comments   Share   Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact (Photo by Norm Hall/Getty Images) It’s nothing Murray can’t overcome, but the air might be thicker than anticipated.Finally, Keim.The GM was never in danger of losing his job after a 3-13 season. His relationship with Michael Bidwill is too strong. He’s did too many good things during his partnership with Arians. He wears his heart on his sleeve and has worked his way up from the ground floor.But as of now, Keim is officially on the clock. If Kingsbury doesn’t have the voice or chops to command and compel a small army of men, day after day, without fail, for six months, this could get ugly. If his handpicked assistants lose faith in their rookie leader, the scene might be an insult to dumpster fires. And for all of that danger, Kingsbury is the least of Keim’s concerns.To wit:If Keim makes the wrong choice at quarterback, and the one he discards rises to instant stardom elsewhere, he could do more than wound the franchise for a decade. Keim could ruin his legacy in Arizona forever.That would be a cruel twist. And it’s why the game can be terrifying at its highest level, especially for GM’s with weak stomachs.Reach Bickley at dbickley@bonneville.com.
