Dutch to put four on trial over MH17 crash

first_imgNieuwegein: Dutch prosecutors are to put four people on trial for murder next year over the shooting down of flight MH17 over Ukraine, in which 298 people were killed, relatives said on Wednesday. The court case over the crash of the Malaysia Airlines plane will start in the Netherlands in March 2020, according to family members who were briefed ahead of an announcement by international investigators due about 1100 GMT. The identities of the four people to be charged were not immediately available but a Ukrainian minister and reports said on Tuesday they included at least one senior Russian officer.

It’s a start. I’m satisfied.” The charges come nearly a year after the international probe into the crash said the BUK missile which hit the Boeing 777 had originated from a Russian military brigade based in the southwestern city of Kursk.

He created this situation. He is the main responsible person.” Russia has vehemently denied all involvement in the shooting down of MH17. On Wednesday it complained of being excluded from the probe despite “proactively” trying to be involved. “You know our attitude towards this investigation. Russia had no opportunity to take part in it even though it showed initiative from… the very first days of this tragedy,” Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters. Ukraine’s deputy foreign minister Olena Zerkal said on Tuesday that four people would be named over MH17 and senior Russian army officers were involved. Zerkal said the transfer of weapons like the BUK anti-aircraft missile system “is impossible without the (Russian) top brass’s permission”. Dutch media have named several suspects including the head of the 53rd anti-aircraft brigade, the Russian unit identified by the probe last year. The Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing the attack includes Australia, Belgium, Malaysia, the Netherlands and Ukraine. The Netherlands and Australia said in May last year that they formally “hold Russia responsible” for the disaster, after the findings on the origin of the missile were announced. Of the passengers who died, 196 were Dutch and 38 Australian. Any trial is likely to be in the Netherlands where the majority of the victims came from. The suspects could be tried in absentia as Russia does not extradite its nationals for prosecution, said Dutch broadcaster RTL, quoting anonymous sources. “After five years, it is finally clear that justice will be done. This is very important for surviving relatives,” Piet Ploeg, president of a Dutch victims’ association who lost three family members on MH17, told AFP. Investigative website Bellingcat on Wednesday named a series of Ukrainian separatists that it said were linked to the downing of MH17, based on phone intercepts previously revealed by the Dutch-led team. The Dutch safety board said in 2015 that the plane had been hit by a BUK missile, with the JIT reaching the same conclusion in 2016. Then in May 2018 the JIT said MH17 was shot down by a BUK missile from Russia’s 53rd brigade, but that they were still searching for suspects. They showed videos and animation of the BUK launcher as part of a Russian military convoy, using video clips found on social media and then checked against Google Maps, as it travelled from Kursk to eastern Ukraine. Russia insisted last year that the missile was fired by Kiev’s forces, adding that it was sent to Ukraine in the Soviet era. The war in eastern Ukraine and the MH17 disaster continue to plague relations between Russia and the West. Since 2014, some 13,000 people have been killed. Kiev and its Western backers accuse Russia of funnelling troops and arms to back the separatists. Moscow has denied the claims despite evidence to the contrary.last_img read more

first_img(Inuit artist Annie Pootoogook, 46, was found in the Rideau River on Sept. 19. APTN/File Photo)Jorge Barrera APTN National NewsOttawa police’s Major Crime Unit is now treating the death of Inuit artist Annie Pootoogook as “suspicious.”Staff-Sgt. Bruce Pirt said Monday there were some aspects to Pootoogook’s death that demand closer inspection.“We are treating it as suspicious,” said Pirt, who is with the Major Crimes Unit. “There are elements that are suspicious, so we are going to have a closer look.”Pirt said investigators are analyzing footage seized from surveillance cameras at the Shepherds of Good Hope, where Pootoogook is said to have previously taken refuge, and other locations to map out her last movements before her death.Pirt said investigators are also trying to gather eye-witness accounts of Pootoogoook to pint-point exactly what happened before she ended up in the Rideau River where she was found submerged on Sept. 19 at about 8:50 a.m. near Bordeleau Park in Ottawa’s Lowertown neighbourhood.Pootoogook was “nomadic” in her last movements and it has proved difficult for investigators to piece together an accurate timeline.“It is difficult to pinpoint that,” said Pirt.Pirt said investigators have interviewed William Watt, Pootoogook’s partner, a number of times.“We want other people to talk to,” he said.Ottawa police initially stated foul play was not initially suspected in Pootoogook’s death.On Friday, when police identified Pootoogook as the woman found in the river, investigators issued a public plea for information on the Inuit artist.“We are getting a good public response,” said Pirt.Ottawa police will not release Pootoogook’s body “pending further investigation,” he said.Nancy Ainalik said she hung out with Annie Pootoogook on Ottawa’s streets. APTN/PhotoNancy Ainalik said she hung out with Pootoogook on Ottawa’s streets. They both came from the same Nunavut community. She said the last thing she knew about Pootoogook was that she was going to get country food and bring it home.“A couple of days later, I found out,” said Ainalik, who has been in Ottawa for about six months.Ainalik said Pootoogook was friends with her mother back when she lived in Cape Dorset, Nunavut, before her crayon and ink artwork made her an international star in contemporary art.Originally from Cape Dorset, Pootoogook moved to Ottawa as her fame in the art world grew. Once in the city she slid deep into alcohol and ended up at times homeless and eventually pregnant.Pootoogook is best known from her artwork, which is in collections held by the National Art Gallery and the Ontario Gallery of Art.Pootoogook’s cousin Inusiq Shoo said he cried “a little bit” when he heard the news of his cousin.Shoo said he was on the computer at the Rideau branch of the Ottawa public library last Friday when his friend came over to tell him about a story that just popped up on Facebook from Nunavut newspaper Nunatsiaq News saying Pootoogook was dead.“I was shocked,” said Shoo, during an interview at a men’s shelter in Ottawa Friday night. “I am going to miss her. I loved her as a cousin.”Shoo said he didn’t know what led to her death in the river. He said he knew she was trying to leave her partner.Shoo she shared a special connection with Pootoogook through their language.“We always talked in Inuktitut when we see each other,” he said. “We never spoke English. That is how we know each other.”“She was the best artist I ever saw,” said Shoo.Pootoogook was 46, police said.jbarrera@aptn.ca@JorgeBarreralast_img read more

Manmohan calls for expeditious inclusive solution

Concerned over the slow pace of the rehabilitation of Tamils, New Delhi has been pressing Colombo to fast-track the rehabilitation of war-displaced Tamils in Sri Lanka and also asking it to speed up a lasting solution to the ethnic issue. Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa on Thursday discussed key bilateral issues with India pressing for an expeditious inclusive solution to the decades-long ethnic issue and rehabilitation of displaced Tamils.Singh also hosted a private dinner, which was attended by a select number of guests, for the visiting dignitary. MDMK general secretary Vaiko, who has arrived in Nagpur with over 1,000 supporters on way to Sanchi, has attacked the central government and the BJP-led Madhya Pradesh government for inviting the Sri Lankan President.Earlier, Rajapaksa met President Pranab Mukherjee during which rehabilitation process for Tamils and fishermen issues were discussed.In the backdrop of the recent attacks against Sri Lankans in Tamil Nadu, the visiting leader, during his meeting with Mukherjee, also noted that such “unfortunate incidents” should not be allowed to “harm” age-old ties between the two countries. (PTI) On his part, Rajapaksa talked about various steps taken by his government to rehabilitate Tamils as also in dealing with the ethnic issue.The visit also comes amid angry protests by some Tamil leaders. Nearly half a dozen MDMK supporters, opposing Rajapaksa’s visit to Madhya Pradesh, were detained at Salamatpur near Sanchi as a precautionary measure, according to the state police. Rajapaksa has been invited by Madhya Pradesh government for the foundation stone-laying ceremony of the University of Buddhist and Indic Studies in Sanchi. read more

Weaker inflation slows to 13 could weigh on central banks rate decision

Weaker inflation slows to 1.3%, could weigh on central bank’s rate decision OTTAWA – Steps by the Bank of Canada to prepare the country for an eventual interest rate hike are bumping up against an inflation rate that has eased up on the accelerator.Weaker year-over-year growth in gasoline prices last month helped slow the annual inflation rate to 1.3 per cent for May, Statistics Canada said Friday.The result was softer than economists expected and lower than April’s reading of 1.6 per cent, prompting some to predict it could slow the Bank of Canada’s move toward an interest rate hike.The data point comes as the economy strengthens and the central bank sends out signals it’s moving closer to a rate increase. The bank will make its next scheduled interest rate announcement on July 12 when it also updates its economic outlook.The latest inflation figures could play a key role in that decision.For one, the headline inflation rate moved further away from the bank’s target of two per cent.The data also showed lower readings for two of the Bank of Canada’s three measures for core inflation, which omit volatile items.Two of the core readings slowed to 1.5 per cent and 1.2 per cent. The other one was unchanged at 1.3 per cent.Last week, governor Stephen Poloz signalled he’s inching closer to a hike as the economy builds momentum in several key areas.The bank’s benchmark rate has been at 0.5 per cent for two years and hasn’t been raised in nearly seven years.Before the data release Friday, some analysts had predicted the bank could start raising the rate as early as next month.But the continued softness, particularly for core inflation, is considered by many as a reason for the central bank to hold off a little longer.“On balance, I think that today’s disappointing report deals a blow to what have been rising expectations that policy accommodation might begin to be removed as soon as July,” said Josh Nye, an economist with RBC Economics Research.“As much as the Bank of Canada has seemed a bit dismissive of those recent inflation numbers, I think it would be hard for them to raise rates in July given the decline that we saw again in May’s inflation.”BMO chief economist Doug Porter noted Friday that the central bank’s previous measure of core inflation, which was replaced by the three new measures in December, registered 0.9 per cent to hit its lowest annual pace on record — dating back to the mid-1980s.“No matter where you look, overall inflation is roughly 1.3 per cent in Canada at this point,” Porter wrote in a note to clients.“Exhibit A for why the bank can take its sweet time before raising rates. Canada’s inflation rate is now not only well below Britain and the U.S., but it is now also lower than that in China and the EU.”But Jimmy Jean of Desjardins Capital Markets argued that while the inflation numbers are important, they won’t necessarily be definitive when it comes to next month’s rate decision.Jean wrote in a research note that senior deputy governor Carolyn Wilkins recently indicated the weakness in core measures was consistent with the lagged impacts of past quarters, rather with the forward-looking focus of the bank.Markets will be searching for more clues next week with scheduled public appearances by Poloz and deputy governor Lynn Patterson as well as the releases of the central bank’s business outlook survey and Statistics Canada’s gross domestic product numbers for April.In Friday’s inflation report, the weakened pace for May was largely due to the slower year-over-year increase in gas prices, which rose just 6.8 per cent after climbing 15.9 per cent in April.Gasoline, however, remained one of the biggest upward contributors to inflation last month despite the weakened price growth.In other areas, prices declined in electricity, bakery products and Internet access services.Last month’s 5.5 per cent fall in electricity prices was one of the biggest downward contributors and recent changes in Ontario’s hydro rates appear to have had an impact on the national number.Compared to a year earlier, Statistics Canada said the price of electricity in Ontario fell last month by 16.1 per cent.Ontario had promised to cut electricity bills by an average of 17 per cent and the reductions were scheduled to start taking effect in May.Follow @AndyBlatchford on Twitter. by Andy Blatchford, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 23, 2017 6:39 am MDT Last Updated Jun 23, 2017 at 11:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

What to Expect From Michael Phelps If He Swims in Rio de

None of this isn’t to say that Phelps can’t surprise his doubters in 2016. But the age and steady progress of other swimmers will be working against him should he compete in Rio. Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian in history, announced this week that he was returning to competitive swimming. Phelps had retired following a six-medal performance at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Phelps and his coach, Bob Bowman, aren’t saying whether he’s gearing up for another run at the Olympics, but it’s hard not to speculate about one of the best athletes ever returning to competition. (Remember the hype surrounding a 38-year-old Michael Jordan’s return to basketball?)I’m not here to speculate about whether Phelps will make it to Rio de Janeiro in 2016. But if he represents the United States for a fifth time — he would be 31 — how might he perform?Putting aside conditioning concerns — Phelps only swam occasionally in the year following his retirement, though he is reportedly now working out with Bowman five days a week — the specter of age looms large. Thirty-one is ancient for an Olympic swimmer. Since 1968, only 17 athletes 31 and older have participated in any of the individual events Phelps would probably attempt (100- and 200-meter butterfly; 200-meter freestyle; and 200- and 400-meter individual medley). The average age of medalists in those events was 21.4.Of course, Phelps isn’t the typical Olympic swimmer. At his peak, the 2008 Games, he set the world record in four of the five individual events (he had to settle for just an Olympic record in the 100-meter butterfly; he broke the world record in that event in 2009). So, in 2016, Phelps might be a shadow of his former self, but even a diminished version of history’s best swimmer could be a force to be reckoned with.In the 2012 Olympics, Phelps took individual gold medals in the 100-meter butterfly and the 200-meter medley, and also grabbed silver in the 200-meter butterfly. If we look at how swimmers in those events tend to age, perhaps we can get an idea of whether Phelps is likely to be competitive if he takes to the water in 2016. Unfortunately, the data is sparse on competitors in their 30s, but here’s how the average male swimmer who participated in back-to-back Games tends to see his times change from one Olympics to the next (since 1968, with a minimum sample of four swimmers in each age group): In each graph, the trend is unsurprising: Swimmers get progressively worse with age. If Phelps follows the same paths, he could expect to post average times of 52.2 seconds in the 100-meter butterfly (which wouldn’t have gotten him out of the semifinals in London), 1:57.4 in the 200-meter butterfly (which would have missed qualifying out of Round 1 in 2012), and 1:58.1 in the 200-meter individual medley (which would have qualified for the final, but not earned a medal, in London). Obviously, there’s plenty of uncertainty around those extrapolations, but they give us a sense of how age may affect Phelps — even if he’s prepared and in shape for Rio.There’s one other factor working against Phelps: The rest of the field is getting faster. The average time for a finalist and a gold medalist has steadily decreased in each of Phelps’s best events since 1968: read more

Dont Expect Any More Nintendo Classic Consoles

first_img Sorry, You Can’t Date Keanu Reeves in ‘Cyberpunk 2077”Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball Form Stay on target If you’re itching to play some Nintendo games these days you’ve got a lot of options. The Nintendo Switch is the hottest console on the market with recent hits like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee. The 3DS is still somehow kicking around with its absolutely massive library of great games for all ages. You can even play a couple of decent official Nintendo games on your phone.However, if you want some classic Nintendo games on your television, your best option is to pick up an NES Classic or SNES Classic soon. Not just because these little retro console are a great blast from the past, but because after this holiday shopping season they’ll also just be distant memories as Nintendo won’t be making them anymore.“These products are going to be available through the holiday season and once they sell out, they’re gone. And that’s it,” Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.Granted, we’ve been through this before. The NES Classic was infamously difficult to track down in 2016 and many criticized Nintendo for apparent artificial scarcity tactics. The SNES Classic was much more widespread when it launched last year. That combined with a resupply of NES Classic stock made both retro consoles much easier to get your hands on.However, apparently that’s no longer going to be the case. But frankly, we’re happy about that. We’d much rather Nintendo continue adding retro games to the Nintendo Switch, a device that also plays new Nintendo games, instead of selling these emulator boxes DIY dudes can crack open anyway. Just put Super Mario 64 on the Switch instead of trying to convince people to buy new N64 controllers in 2019 for nearly $100. Plus, the disappointment of the PlayStation One Classic has probably taken some of the sheen off of these products in general.So if you want an NES Classic or SNES Classic you better pick one up now before its too late. Or just buy a Switch.

No one arrested in border clash is prosecuted

first_img AP, Posted: November 29, 2018 No one arrested in border clash is prosecuted SAN DIEGO (AP) — No criminal charges will be filed against any of the 42 people associated with a caravan of Central American migrants who were arrested in a clash that ended with U.S. authorities firing tear gas into Mexico, The Associated Press has learned.The decision not to prosecute comes despite President Donald Trump’s vow that the U.S. will not tolerate lawlessness and extensive preparations for the caravan, which included deployment of thousands of active-duty troops to the border.Rodney Scott, chief of the Border Patrol’s San Diego sector, has said those arrested for illegal entry included 27 men, with the rest being women and children.The incident occurred Sunday at the border in Tijuana, where thousands of caravan members have been arriving in recent weeks after fleeing poverty and violence in Central America. Most of them plan to seek asylum in the U.S. but may have to wait months because the U.S. government only processes about 100 of those cases a day.As frustrations began to mount over the long wait, migrants marched to the border Sunday to appeal for the U.S. to speed things up. It turned unruly when four agents were struck with rocks or projectiles and authorities responded by launching tear gas and pepper spray balls to quell the unrest.But in the end, none of the 42 people had charges brought against them for illegally entering the country or any other counts.Customs and Border Protection, the Border Patrol’s parent agency, referred only two cases to the Justice Department for prosecution and charges were not filed because the accused had medical problems that prevented them from being held in San Diego’s detention center, according to a U.S. official familiar with the cases who was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.Many others were not referred to the Justice Department because they were children or parents accompanying children, the official said. In June, Trump retreated on the administration’s “zero-tolerance” policy on prosecuting illegal entries by generally exempting people who enter the county in families.The other adults were not prosecuted because Customs and Border Protection didn’t have enough information to pursue charges, including the name of the arresting officers, according to the official, who said it was an extremely chaotic scene.U.S. authorities are working on a new system to better record evidence if similar circumstances arise in the future, the official said.The fate of the 42 immigrants remains unclear. Customs and Border Protection declined to discuss why charges weren’t filed but said they still may be subject to deportation.“Depending on their country of citizenship and their case’s final disposition, the Border Patrol may turn those people over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement,” said spokesman Ralph DeSio.Lauren Mack, a spokeswoman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said the agency could not provide information about the immigration status of the 42 arrested without names because it doesn’t track people affiliated with the caravan.

Texas Sees Major Cuts in Refugees from Iraq Syria in 2018

first_imgflickr/European Commission DG ECHO/Photo credit: IOM IraqDomiz refugee camp, in northern Iraq, hosts around 65 000 Syrian refugees since its opening in April 2012. ECHO continues to fund partners like IOM to ensure basic services are available.Texas welcomed 67 percent fewer refugees in fiscal year 2018 than in 2017, down to 1,697 people from 4,768. Some of the starkest drops in refugee arrivals were from Iraq, Iran and Syria, majority Muslim countries. Iraqi refugee resettlement dropped from 949 to 25 in Texas. The number of Syrian refugees went from 455 to just one in fiscal year 2018. Sobia Siddiqui, communications coordinator for the Council on American-Islamic Relations Texas Chapter, said the cuts are discriminatory. “Our president ran his campaign and one of his strongest and most vocal points is that he called for a ban on all Muslims,” said Siddiqui.She said there are refugee families in Houston who can’t be reunited with family members facing dangerous situations abroad because of the ban.“There’s a lot of anxiety and uncertainty about if people will be able to have their families rejoin them back here in the United States or even in Houston,” said Dan Stoecker, CEO of The Alliance, which offers refugee services in Houston. Stoecker said cuts to refugee resettlement are coming during a historic humanitarian crisis.A record 68.5 million people are displaced worldwide, according to the UN Refugee Agency.“Syria and Iraq are two of the greatest areas of conflict on the planet right now,” said Stoecker. His organization resettled the single Syrian refugee in Texas and he attributes drops in refugees from Syria and Iraq to the travel ban.The U.S. Department of State denies that the ban discriminates based on religion.“There is no ban on any nationality or religion,” a department spokesperson said in a written statement.The statement went on to say, “The number of FY 2018 refugee arrivals (22,491) is consistent with the U.S. government’s operational capacity and screening and vetting procedures following the President’s issuance of Executive Order 13780, Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States.”Executive Order 13780 is a revised iteration of the President Trump’s original travel ban, which had been challenged in courts and struck down. The prior executive order, which some referred to as a “Muslim ban”, barred entry from several majority Muslim countries, including Iraq and Syria.A report by the International Rescue Committee shows that, nationwide, Muslim refugees were more likely to be impacted by refugee cuts than Christians.On Thursday, the Department of State made official refugee admissions for 2019, with a cap of 30,000, the lowest number in the history of the refugee resettlement program. This comes after a year of record low refugee arrivals. Sharelast_img read more

Call For End To Social Media Abuse of Duchesses Meghan Kate

first_imgBy GREGORY KATZ ,  Associated PressLONDON (AP) — Britain’s press is urging social media users to tone down inappropriate criticism of Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge.Palace officials have been seeking help from Instagram to monitor and remove offensive comments about the two duchesses, who are married to Prince Harry and Prince William.In this Tuesday, Dec. 25, 2018 file photo, Britain’s Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, left, and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex arrive to attend the Christmas day service at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham in Norfolk, England. The British press on Tuesday Jan. 29, 2019, is urging social media users to tone down inappropriate criticism of Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge. (AP Photo/Frank Augstein, File)Palace aides have been spending hours each week moderating comments on the official Palace Instagram account and removing racist and sexist content.There have been rumors in recent months that Meghan and Kate have been feuding, which could have partly fueled online abuse with fans of one duchess criticizing the other online in very personal terms.Meghan, an American actress who married Harry in May, is pregnant with their first child, and some on social media and in the press have taken to criticizing her for cradling her “baby bump” during public engagements.The Times newspaper reported Tuesday in an editorial called “Vile Abuse” that many of the comments made about Meghan and Kate are too vicious to publish and have included threats.“Women receive more abuse online than men and this sad truth seems to apply just as much to the royal family,” the newspaper said.The paper also condemned the treatment of Rachel Riley, a British television personality who has complained about a torrent of anti-Semitic abuse on Twitter.In response to the rise of abusive comments directed at the royal women, Hello! magazine this week launched a “kindness” campaign urging posters to think twice before posting nasty comments.“For us, it’s not acceptable to pit two women against each other,” the magazine’s royal correspondent Emily Nash said in a video announcing the campaign. “It’s not acceptable to post abusive, threatening, racist or sexist comments online. And it’s not acceptable to attack other users just because they disagree with you.”last_img read more

PS4 and Xbox One performance compared using AMD PC hardware

first_imgBoth Microsoft and Sony have unveiled their respective next generation consoles and we’ve got a fairly good idea of what the hardware is capable of. There’s speculation that the PS4 has a performance advantage due to its use of a more powerful GPU and faster GDDR5 RAM. But we won’t know if that turns out to be a real-world advantage until both machines are available to purchase.Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry team has decided they can’t wait to find out, though, and have come up with a best guess test. What they did was to create two PCs using AMD components that best match the internals of the Xbox One and PS4 hardware in terms of the performance difference. Then they loaded up a number of games, but focused in particular on Crysis 3 on both machines to carry out some comparisons.It’s important to note that Digital Foundry setup the hardware to focus on testing the graphics performance and didn’t want a CPU or memory bottleneck. So they opted to use a Core i7 3770K overclocked to 4.3GHz and 16GB DDR3 RAM running at 1375MHz. As for the GPU, the best equivalent to the Xbox One was found to be the Radeon HD 7850, for the PS4 it’s the Radeon HD 7870 XT, both with 2GB of dedicated RAM and running at 600MHz.While the GPUs chosen may in fact be more powerful than those in the consoles, the important thing to get right was the difference between the two, which is 50 percent more raw performance in the PS4. Check out the videos above and below to see the difference that actually makes for gaming:The performance advantage just on compute power from a better GPU isn’t as great as you’d expect. Comparing several games the performance gain varies between 17-22 percent in favor of the PS4. The PS4 does have another ace up its sleeve, though: memory bandwidth, which Digital Foundry admits could be a huge performance advantage. However, it’s hard to decide how big because we simply don’t know how fast the Xbox One’s SRAM is and how easy it will be for developers to take advantage of.Ultimately, it seems that any games initially released as multiplatform titles will end up playing equally well on both next-gen consoles. It’s only when we get to 3rd and 4th generation game releases, when developers understand the hardware platforms much better, that we may see one console start to show a real advantage. On paper that looks likely to be the PS4.Of course, Microsoft may have actually turned around Sony’s performance advantage before either console has launched if the rumors that the Xbox One GPU clock speed having been increased turns out to be true.last_img read more

It can provide a single source for patient demographic information including contact, payer source and primary care physician for use by clinical and administrative information systems. Initiate also can help pave the way to integrate with regional health information organizations (RHIOs). An example of how Initiate helped customers’ processes includes a large integrated delivery system that had a 3 percent error rate when trying to post ECG information to the correct patient file. Initiate’s solutions were used to create a master patient index that virtually eliminated errors during the critical data exchange process. Another institution was unable to effectively comply with Joint Commission standards for tracking provider privileges and credentialing. Initiate’s technology now provides a single, reliable view of information on 63,000 providers affiliated with the facility. A healthcare system’s nursing staff was wasting hours hunting for information to prepare patients for the OR. Initiate provided a foundation for an interoperable platform that has delivered an 82 percent reduction in the time it takes OR nurses to gather patient information, and a 50 percent increase in the number of patients fully prepped on schedule. Initiate Interoperable Health supports increased productivity by addressing data quality issues like duplicate records and the costs associated with redundant testing, lost referrals and missing clinical results. Clinicians can spend more time with patients and less time hunting and gathering information about a patient.
