Supreme Court will not review Washington tobacco case

first_imgYAKIMA — The U.S. Supreme Court has denied a request for further review of a Washington tobacco company’s tax appeal.The Yakima Herald reported Wednesday that cigarette manufacturer King Mountain Tobacco must pay $58 million in federal excise taxes.The Supreme Court released its decision without comment June 10, a month after the U.S. Solicitor General opposed the review.A U.S. District Court awarded the government the unpaid federal taxes from the company and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the ruling.King Mountain is owned and operated by the Wheeler family, citizens of the Yakama Nation.The Wheelers say the company on tribal land in White Swan, 171 miles southeast of Seattle, is exempted from federal excise taxes by the 1855 Yakama Treaty.last_img read more

Shortterm debt funds better placed post CRR move Fund managers

first_imgDebt funds remained attractive for investors despite Reserve Bank of India’s new norms on cash reserve ratio (CRR) as fund managers are of the view that returns will definitely be better in coming days, especially in short-term debt funds category.Apart from short-term gilt funds, long-term gilt funds and liquid funds among others are likely to give better returns and investors could put money in them as market participants see RBI’s move on CRR as a temporary measure.In a recent notification, RBI has asked banks to park all incremental deposits garnered between September 16 and November 11 with it as CRR to suck out huge liquidity. This has resulted in huge outflows from liquid and money market funds.”Things are almost settling down. Investors understand that the move of RBI is a temporary measure to suck out excess liquidity in the system,” Chief Investment Officer of Sundaram Mutual Fund, Dwijendra Srivastava told International Business Times Thursday.He also said this move should not be seen as a negative move on mutual funds as RBI is likely to follow the path of monetary easing going ahead.Post banning of high value currencies, banks have seen surge in deposits to the tune of more than Rs 8 lakh crore as of now. Excess deposits with banks have prompted banks to park their money in liquid funds for better returns.However, new CRR rule of RBI have led to huge outflow of funds as banks pulled out money to comply with the new norm.”This was the surplus money which was never in the system. It was just a momentary inflow. So, fund industry is not likely to be affected due to this move,” Jimmy Patel, Chief Executive Officer of Quantum Mutual Fund told IBT.He also said that investors should park their money in short-term funds as likely fall in bond yields would give better returns in the near-term.As things will take one-two quarters to stabilize, short-term debt funds are better placed to give higher return than any banking instruments like fixed deposits, Patel added.last_img read more

Save Firefox tabs with Set Aside

first_imgSave Firefox tabs with Set Aside by Martin Brinkmann on November 23, 2018 in Firefox – Last Update: November 23, 2018 – 12 commentsHow do you use your web browser? Do you keep tabs open when you close it and reload the session to continue where you left off? Start with a blank page and nothing else? Use bookmarks to save important sites for safekeeping?Depending on how you use the browser, you may be interested in a new extension called Set Aside. Set Aside is a Firefox add-on that saves any tab that is open so that you have a record of all the sites of a saved group. You may then re-open the entire group of tabs or individual sites at a later point in time.The functionality may remind veteran Firefox users of Panorama, a removed feature that could be used to create tab groups and switch between them. Set Aside does not replicate Panorama fully, though.There are three main use cases for using Set Aside: to save a set of tabs for safekeeping, to save memory, or to save all open tabs to start anew without losing information.Set Aside for FirefoxSet Aside is simple to use. Installation is straightforward; a new icon is added to Firefox’s tabbar after installation that you may interact with.A click on the icon moves all open tabs, with a few notable exceptions, to a “set aside” group. Means, all open tabs are closed and moved to a group for safe keeping and future access.Tabs that use internal protocols and some other protocols, e.g. about:, file:, or moz-extension:, are not closed in the process and exempt from the process because there is no option to open them again according to the developer.Any regular tab is added to a group. You manage group in the browser’s sidebar; open it either with a tab on Alt and the selection of View > Sidebar > Tabs you’ve set aside or by using Ctrl-B to open the Bookmarks sidebar and selecting Tabs You’ve Set Aside from the sidebar selection menu.The number of saved tabs, date and time are listed for each group you saved. Set Aside displays a thumbnail image of the first saved tab and the title of the page. A click would load it right away in Firefox; options to browse all saved tabs are provided when you hover over the thumbnail.A click on restore tabs restores all saved tabs at once. Note that Set Aside removes the tab from the group when you open it so that its use is limited when it comes to tab backups. Other extensions, e.g. Session Boss, provide better backup capabilities.Closing WordsSet Aside is a useful extension for Firefox for some browsing scenarios. While it is certainly possible to achieve the same in a different manner, e.g. by using multiple browser windows to separate tabs, Set Aside may be easier to use in some cases and reduces memory usage as well.I would like to see functionality to switch from a thumbnail view to a list view, and keep the saved sites in the group even when they are loaded again in Firefox.Now You: Do you use a “Set Aside” type add-on for Firefox or other browsers?Summary12345 Author Rating3 based on 4 votes Software Name Set AsideSoftware Category BrowserLanding Page Advertisementlast_img read more

Videos | Radiation Therapy | July 30, 2019 VIDEO: Use of Radiotherapy to Noninvasively Ablate Ventricular Tachycardia Pierre Qian, MBBS, read more Left: standard-dose image at 396 mAs, 140 kVp. Right: SafeCT reconstructed image from the same patient imaged at 198 mAs, 120 kVp. The software offers a similar image with 50 percent less dose. Computed tomography (CT) offers a very important, noninvasive diagnostic tool, but the price of high image quality sometimes comes with a cost of high radiation dose. This is especially true of CT angiography (CTA), which may require imaging several cardiac cycles. CT scans have been a trade-off between good images using higher doses, or lower image quality using lower doses. Advancements in CT imaging processing software have helped improve the image quality from low-dose scans by eliminating noise. This can help lower patient radiation dose by 30-80 percent, according to the manufacturers, without compromising diagnostic image quality. The primary technique uses iterative image reconstruction. Early versions of the software were slow and required much more time to produce a final image than simply using a higher dose. However, advancements have greatly reduced the processing time. High-dose CT scans were brought into the public eye last year with mainstream media attention. With radiology associations and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) proposing radiation dose monitoring, registries and procedural limits, dose-lowering technology will play an increasingly important role. CT Manufacturers During the 2010 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) meeting in December, all the major CT vendors introduced new dose-lowering software or highlighted works-in-progress. Philips introduced its Ingenuity CT, which features the company’s new iDose4 iterative reconstruction software. It is designed to provide equivalent diagnostic image quality at up to 80 percent less dose. It can also improve spatial resolution up to 35 percent with up to 50 percent less dose. The new platform is available as a standalone or as a hybrid molecular imaging system. “In the past, because the combination of great image quality, low dose and fast reconstruction times has been a challenge for the industry, CT scanning has often been about trade-off,” said Gene Saragnese, Philips imaging systems CEO. However, he said the new system allows both low dose and fast image reconstruction. AT RSNA, Siemens previewed its FAST CARE (Fully Assisting Scanner Technologies – Combined Applications to Reduce Exposure) CT application to assist with dose reduction and faster workflow. It automates many operating procedures, suggests parameter settings for image quality and dose reduction, and standardizes processes. FAST CARE will be available on the Somatom Definition AS scanners in March 2011 and on the Somatom Definition Flash scanners in May 2011. Installed Definition family CT scanners can be upgraded to the new platform. Toshiba showed its works-in-progress Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction (AIDR) technology, which iterates noise to increase quality and lower radiation dose by up to 75 percent. The software intuitively improves the image by removing noise until the optimal image is produced. AIDR is pending 510(k) clearance, but will be standard on the Aquilion Premium and Aquilion One. GE Healthcare showcased its ASiR (adaptive statistical iterative reconstruction) low-dose reconstruction technology, which is available on the GE Discovery CT750 HD and LightSpeed VCT. The company says it reduces dose by up to 40-50 percent while maintaining image quality and can be implemented as a cost-effective upgrade for existing LightSpeed VCT systems. The technology can be used on both helical and axial scans to reduce dose and maintain image quality for patients of all ages. ASiR is now installed on more than 600 CT scanners worldwide. GE’s newest low-dose technology is a model-based iterative reconstruction (MBIR) technology called Veo. It is currently available in Europe and is pending 510(k) clearance in the United States. When compared to previous GE reconstruction methods, Veo’s new modeling techniques deliver resolution gain, lower noise, improved low-contrast detectability and artifact suppression. Third-Party Vendors In January, Medic Vision received FDA clearance to market its add-on SafeCT product in the United States. The software processes and enhances images on a wide variety of CT scanners. SafeCT enables a 50 percent dose reduction in CT scans without compromising image quality and diagnostic information. SafeCT, which is compatible with most major CT platforms and picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), can provide low-dose imaging functionality to these scanners. “We are exploring strategic partnerships to facilitate the distribution of our CT dose-reduction system to American clinicians and to promote synergetic collaborations for integrating our system into existing and emerging CT scanner platforms,” said Medic Vision CEO Eyal Aharon.

Australia explores high speed rail

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: N.J Long airport queues could be the way of the past for domestic travellers as the government leads research into the possibility of launching high speed rail (HSR) down under.The first phase of a two-part report compiled by the Department of Infrastructure and Transport released earlier this month found that the rail alternative to domestic travel could cost up to $108 billion and would offer speedy transport from Brisbane through to Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne.With up to 264 million long-distance trips predicted to be made on the east coast of Australia over the next 45 years, research expects up to 54 million people to utilise the HSR network each from year by 2036 and up to 3.5 million to travel via rail between Brisbane and Sydney. A further eight million passenger are forecasted to travel via HSR between Sydney and Melbourne, while rail trips between Newcastle, the Central Coast and Sydney are expected to attract 15 million.While travel fares would be considerably lower than flying, with a ticket between Newcastle and Sydney expected to cost up to $16.50 for commuters, the time of travel for inter-city non-stop running times could increase as trips between Melbourne and Sydney exceeding up to three hours via rail and one hour by air. As part of expenditure, the government identified possible centre stations that would need development in short-listed areas including Roma Street and South Bank in Brisbane, Central Station, Eveleigh, Homebush and Parramatta in Sydney, Southern Cross Station and North Melbourne in Melbourne and Civic and Canberra Airport in Canberra. Despite their popularity as gateways into the cities, Melbourne and Sydney airport have been ruled out as possible station locations because “initial patronage demand forecasts indicate most HSR demand would be for travel to the CBDs, rather than to airports”.The second phase of report results will cover the travel market more extensively as well as highlight travel demand, the nature and costs of projects and plan for institutional framework and delivering the HSR program.last_img read more
