Ont man who sexually abused daughters nieces deemed dangerous offender

first_imgAn Ontario man who sexually abused his young daughters and nieces over close to a decade will spend an indeterminate amount of time behind bars after a judge found he was in denial about his pedophilia and likely to reoffend.The man, who can only be identified as K.C., was deemed a dangerous offender, a lifetime designation that allows the court to impose a prison sentence with no end date.In handing down the designation, Ontario Superior Court Justice Kevin B. Phillips said K.C.’s unwillingness to accept and address his pedophilia would put the public at risk if he was released.“I find that the overall evidence establishes beyond a reasonable doubt that it is likely that K.C. will reoffend by indulging his pedophilia as he is done in the past,” Phillips wrote in a decision released last week.“He has offended while on probation. He offended while under the care of a specialized psychiatrist specifically treating him for his pedophilia. He offended while the (Children’s Aid Society) was involved in his family, exercising control over his direct access to children which he circumvented,” he wrote.“And, as mentioned, he does not presently have enough insight into his problem to fully accept that he needs significant help. He is in denial about what is plain to see.”WARNING: Graphic details follow.K.C. was convicted by a jury in 2015 of several counts each of sexual assault and sexual interference for offences committed between 2004 and 2012, the decision says.The jury found that while his two young nieces were sleeping on a couch at his house, K.C. pulled down their pyjama pants and took pictures of the youngest one’s genitals and of the oldest’s underwear. The oldest niece, who was between five and eight years old at the time, was awake but pretending to sleep and saw him, the document says.During another sleepover when the older niece was in Grade 4, K.C. came into her bedroom at night, pulled down her pants and touched her genitals, it says.The jury also accepted the testimony of one of K.C.’s daughters, who said he once touched her genitals and covered her mouth when she threatened to scream “so that Mommy wouldn’t hear,” the decision said. Court also heard of other sexual abuse involving his daughters, the decision said.K.C. had also previously been convicted of sexually assaulting a four-year-old girl at a friend’s home and of sexual interference and breach of probation involving a 12-year-old girl, the decision says.He was undergoing psychiatric treatment and dealing with the Children’s Aid Society as a result of the latter conviction when many of the offences involving his daughters and nieces took place, the document says. Despite being ordered not to be alone with children, K.C. and his wife “jointly endeavoured to deceive the CAS with respect to K.C.’s compliance.”Phillips raised concerns that K.C.’s family would not help keep him from reoffending if he was released, since most believe him to be wrongfully convicted.“The woman with whom K.C. proposes to live with post-release testified that, while she will follow any court order, if she had children she would allow K.C. access to them as she believes in his innocence and does not see that he has any problems in that regard,” he said.“It is a real concern that those around K.C. simply do not accept the extent of his issues. That lack of insight does not bode well for quality of supervision.”In the end, the judge wrote, the only way to sufficiently protect the public is to ensure that K.C. is either behind bars or under close supervision for the rest of his life.last_img read more

Key SA pacer Rabada deals with stiff back ahead of World Cup

first_imgNew Delhi: Premier South Africa pacer Kagiso Rabada’s stiff back is a concern for Delhi Capitals towards the business end of the IPL but his national team would be more concerned with the World Cup just few days away. Delhi Capitals badly missed Rabada’s services in the game against CSK in Chennai on Wednesday, when they were handed a massive 80-run loss. It was the first time this season Rabada missed a game. Though captain Shreyas Iyer insisted that the management took a precautionary measure by resting Rabada, South Africa would be worried since their veteran pacer Dale Steyn is also injured, playing just two IPL games this season. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: RijijuDelhi and CSK are two teams which have qualified for the play-offs. “Yes we know what abilities he has. He’s an amazing bowler especially in the slog overs. For sure we missed him but he had a stiff back, it’s good he got to take rest,” said Iyer after the defeat against CSK. Being a World Cup year, physios of all national teams are monitoring their respective players’ workload in the IPL and are in constant touch with their counterparts across the eight franchisees. Rabada has had back issues in the past and last year was out for three months with a lower-back injury and also missed the IPL. He is IPL’s leading wicket-taker at the moment, having taken 25 wickets in 12 games at an average of 14.72.last_img read more

Ban appoints seasoned French diplomat as new UN peacekeeping chief

2 September 2011Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has appointed Hervé Ladsous as the new head of United Nations peacekeeping, tasking the veteran French diplomat with overseeing the efforts of over 100,000 personnel serving in more than a dozen operations worldwide. Mr. Ladsous replaces Alain Le Roy, who stepped down from his post as Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations last month. “As a seasoned diplomat, Mr. Ladsous brings to the position an extensive experience in the diplomatic field acquired during his service in a variety of countries,” Deputy UN spokesperson Eduardo del Buey, told reporters in New York. “He also brings to the position an acute political judgement, strong crisis-management capacities, especially in the area of peacekeeping, [and] a profound understanding of the challenges facing the United Nations,” he added. Mr. Ladsous was most recently serving as Chief of Staff for the Minister of Foreign Affairs of France, prior to which he was Ambassador to China. He has served his country in numerous countries, including Australia, Switzerland, United States and Indonesia. read more

Case filed against Tissa on forged documents dismissed

The case filed against former United National Party (UNP) General Secretary Tissa Attanayake has been dismissed by court.Attanayake was accused of producing forged documents during the 2015 Presidential elections. Tissa Attanayake had claimed that there was a secret agreement between President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and Tamil National Alliance leader R. Sampanthan during the 2015 Presidential elections.Attanayake displayed documents with the signatures of Sirisena and Wickremesinghe in 2015 claiming it was the agreement reached with the TNA. However Sirisena and Wickremesinghe had denied the allegations and a case was filed against Attanayake. (Colombo Gazette)

Loss of key ecosystems worsens deadly drought in east Africa UN

The UN Environment Programme (UNEP) warned today that the drought devastating East Africa is deepening because of global climate change as well as the ongoing destruction of forests, grasslands, wetlands and other critical ecosystems. “Drought is no stranger to the peoples of East Africa,” said Klaus Toepfer, the Executive Director of UNEP, which has compiled a number of reports on the state of Kenya’s forests. “It is a natural climatic phenomenon. What has dramatically changed in recent decades is the ability of nature to supply essential services like water and moisture during hard times. This is because so much of nature’s water and rain-supplying services have been damaged, destroyed or cleared.“These facts are especially poignant when you factor in the impact of climate change which is triggering more extreme weather events like droughts,” he added.Rainfall over the past year has been poor and the recent rainy season of October to December 2005 has been dismal, according to the Kenyan Meteorological Services.Schoolchildren are usually taught that clouds and precipitation are generated by evaporation from the oceans and the seas. The clouds, rising over hilly areas, then release this moisture as rain which falls onto the land and is returned to the sea via rivers and streams.But Christian Lambrechts, an expert in UNEP’s Division of Early Warning and Assessment, said this commonly held belief tells only part of the story, hiding the vital role of vegetation such as forests in generating showers and rain.“Globally, something like 62 per cent of precipitation occurs over land as a result of evapo-transpiration from lakes and wetlands and dense vegetation, in particular forests pumping water held in the soils, into the air. In comparison only around 38 per cent of precipitation is generated over oceans and seas,” he explained.Mr. Toepfer urged countries in the region to invest in and rehabilitate their “natural or nature capital” in order to buffer vulnerable communities against future droughts.He also urged donor countries to back such schemes as vital lynch pins for overcoming poverty and delivering sustainable and long-lasting economic development, while taking every possible measure to reduce the emissions of fossil fuels that are forcing up global temperatures.“Without these combined actions, countries currently again facing water shortages and power rationing will continue to do so into the future with all the misery and economic damage this entails,” Mr. Toepfer warned. read more

Loonie weaker as oil prices decline EU summit raises questions about economy

by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 25, 2012 5:16 pm MDT Loonie weaker as oil prices decline, EU summit raises questions about economy AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – The Canadian dollar pulled back on Monday as more investors turned to the U.S. dollar as a safe bet and oil prices declined.The loonie was down 0.44 of a cent at 97.16 cents US.The shift came as concerns about the European financial crisis grew, pushing more to put their money into the greenback, which pulled down most major currencies around the world.In commodities, the August crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange ended down 55 cents to US$79.21 a barrel, continuing a slump that has brought the price down from $110 in late February.August gold moved up $21.50 to end at US$1,588.40 an ounce, while July copper rose one cent to US$3.32 a pound.The leaders of France, Germany, Italy and Spain agreed to push for a growth package of up to €130 billion (US$163 billion) at a European Union summit that’s intended to kick-start the economy and safeguard the currency bloc.On Monday, Spain formally asked for help for its ailing banking system but its request left many questions unanswered, including how much of the $125 billion loan package offered by other European nations it needed. The uncertainty upset markets, pushing borrowing costs higher for Spain’s government. Spain’s stock market plunged 3.7 per cent.Cyprus also asked for help, but declined to publicly state how much money is it seeking from the European bailout fund, with a spokesman saying its up for negotiations in the coming days. The island nation is struggling to shore up its banks, which took heavy losses on Greek debt.In the U.S., further signs emerged of a slow housing recovery as the Commerce Department said Americans bought new homes in May at the fastest pace in more than two years.Sales of new homes increased 7.6 per cent in May from April to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 369,000. That’s the best pace since April 2010, the last month that buyers could qualify for a federal home-buying tax credit. read more

Experts raise concern over latest network outage in Atlantic Canada

by Michael Tutton, The Canadian Press Posted Aug 8, 2017 11:18 am MDT Last Updated Aug 8, 2017 at 2:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email HALIFAX – Last Friday’s Bell Aliant outage in many parts of Atlantic Canada has dialed up concerns among experts about the security of the region’s telecommunications system.Eamon Hoey, a management consultant in Toronto who has worked in the field for over four decades, said in an interview the breakdown of Bell’s system due to cuts in crucial fibre optic links raises questions about whether there is sufficient backup.“We need better networks. We need more robust networks. This case in the Atlantic provinces suggests we don’t have it,” he said on Monday from his home in Toronto.The breakdown affected emergency services in some parts of the region, caused widespread cellular telephone outages on Telus, Bell, Virgin and Koodo, and also interrupted internet and some land line services for about four hours, beginning late Friday morning. The Rogers and Eastlink networks continued to operate.Emergency measures agencies in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick said Tuesday they will be in talks with Bell following the outage.In 2011, a cut in a Bell fibre optic line in northern New Brunswick led to service outages through many parts of that province for about three hours.Hoey says the region’s network is heavily reliant on Bell’s fibre optic system, and said the CRTC should consider the need for more backup methods.The veteran consultant also says he believes the federal regulator should be collecting and posting detailed information on all similar outages around the country.“How effective are the carriers in keeping their networks up and running? We have no idea,” he said.Michael Cada, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at Dalhousie University, also said in an interview that the outage suggests a second network, or a backup method such as a satellite system, should be available.“There should always be a backup plan. There should always be somebody else to ideally compete and if not compete to have an alternative route,” said Cada, whose research interests include fibre optic technologies.“In the future, I would try to allow more competition.”Bell (TSX:BCE) has issued a short statement saying it is investigating “an extraordinary situation,” and that there were multiple breaks in the system caused by a third-party contractor.The company has declined to provide an official for an interview, though it confirmed in an email on Tuesday the cuts occurred in Drummondville, in eastern Quebec, and in Richibucto, N.B. Telus was unavailable for comment.Greg MacCallum, director of the New Brunswick Emergency Measures Organization, said in an interview that in his province the outage meant that when people called 911 their location wasn’t coming up, though regular voice service was working for people able to call in.Firefighters were recalled to their stations and ambulances were stationed around several cities as a precaution, he added.MacCallum said he will be having conversations with Bell to learn more about future contingency plans for similar outages.“They have a primary and alternate fibre system that runs into Atlantic Canada and this is a perfect combination of bad circumstances, where one broke and they were using the alternate and it got broken,” he said.“Our critical infrastructure manager is going to be conducting a review … on what Bell’s contingency plan is going forward here to address this kind of circumstance going forward,” he said.Celine Legault, a spokeswoman for the CRTC, confirmed that the federal regulator doesn’t retain reports on all service outages.However, Legault said that a 2016 decision by the regulator determined Canadian 911 networks “are reliable and resilient.”“Following this decision, the CRTC is establishing requirements regarding notification of 911 service outages. The CRTC also requires that all 911 network providers file with it an annual report on 911 network outages that cause 911 service outages,” she wrote in an email.The 911 systems continued to operate in Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Nova Scotia. A spokeswoman for P.E.I.’s Public Safety Department also said the 911 features on the Bell and Telus cell phones continued to work.Paul Mason, the acting director of the Emergency Measures Organization in Nova Scotia, said the outage is a concern for his organization.“We’ve had some preliminary discussions with Bell … and we’ll have further discussions,” he said.Mason said the last major telecommunication incident in Nova Scotia was in December 2015, when a workplace mishap in Halifax resulted in an outage in the capital.Follow (at)mtuttoncporg on Twitter.

Ferris ruled out for 3 months needs minor miracle to make Lions

first_imgSTEPHEN FERRIS’S LIONS prospects are hanging by a thread after Ulster confirmed he is unlikely to play any more rugby this season.The injured flanker went under the knife again yesterday for more surgery on the ankle problem that has sidelined him since last November.In a short statement this evening Ulster said that Ferris will be out of action for a further three months, effectively ending any chance of him making a return in time for the latter stages of the Heineken Cup or RaboDirect Pro12.Following this period he is expected to make “a full and complete return,” Ulster said.Ferris’s last action came in early November when he limped off injured during Ulster’s Pro12 win at home to Edinburgh. With no game-time on the horizon barring a miraculous recovery, it would take a massive leap of faith for coach Warren Gatland to include him in the squad for the British and Irish Lions tour to Australia later this summer.The Ulster statement read: “Ulster backrow forward, Stephen Ferris, was reviewed last week as part of his ongoing rehabilitation from an ankle injury that he sustained in November.“At that review, it was discovered that although he had made excellent progress, some minor issues still remained. Those issues included function at the ankle continuing to cause pain.“Having considered all specialist medical opinions given, Stephen underwent successful ankle surgery in Belfast yesterday, during which fragments of bone were removed.”Kidney 100% standing by his decision to appoint Heaslip as captainlast_img read more

Fujitsu bridges the gap between dead trees and touchscreens

first_imgFujitsu has developed a device that’s capable of turning just about any mostly two-dimensional object into a touchscreen. It’s not alchemy. It’s a simple combination of a low-resolution camera (just 320×180 pixels) and a short-throw projector.The goal, Fujitsu says, is to bring gesture controls to real-world objects like maps, printed forms, and books. In the demo video below, the device overlays geocoded photos that were clipped from one page onto a printed map. That certainly looks like it could be handy for brochure-happy travel agents.Fujitsu also shows off its gesture control abilities. By making a fist, a projection of a 3D model can be zoomed and rotated on its axes. It’s a more basic take on the early demos of the Leap Motion controller or the numerous Kinect Minority Report hacks we’ve seen over the past couple of years.Unlike Kinect and Leap, however, you can bet Fujitsu’s system isn’t going to feature a consumer-friendly price. The company’s imaging wing generally prices its products for the corporate crowd, and a niche device like this will surely command a fairly steep premium. We won’t find out just how steep until next year, however. Fujitsu needs a bit more time to turn its pre-production model into something that’s ready for the rigors of the business world.While what’s shown here is undeniably slick, it’s not exactly ground-breaking. You may remember that Microsoft Research demonstrated something like this last year. Unlike Fujitsu’s stationary desktop unit, Microsoft proposed a wearable device that could project an interactive display on any surface — a notebook, a wall, your boss’ bald head — you name it.Sure, it was a little bulky… but still a heck of a lot more portable than Fujitsu’s device.last_img read more

Orange et SFR confirment que le réseau Free Mobile fonctionne

first_imgOrange et SFR confirment que le réseau Free Mobile fonctionneOrange et SFR mettent un terme aux rumeurs qui voulaient qu’ils aient envoyés des huissiers constater que le réseau Free Mobile est volontairement inactif.Des informations étaient parues il y a quelques jours indiquant que le réseau de Free Mobile était toujours inactif. Des opérateurs, dont SFR et Orange auraient demandé l’envoi d’huissiers pour constater cet état de fait et engager les mesures nécessaires. On sait que Free Mobile, pour 70% du territoire, utilise le réseau d’Orange qu’il loue pour la somme d’un milliard d’euros.Mais selon le site Electron Libre, la polémique n’aura duré que quelques heures puisque les principaux concurrents de la société de Xavier Niel mettent un terme à cette campagne en démentant les rumeurs. Pierre Louette, le Directeur général adjoint et Secrétaire général du groupe France Télécom, a ainsi affirmé qu’aucun problème avec le réseau Free Mobile n’avait été constaté. De son côté, SFR, par la voix de son Directeur Général Réseaux, Pierre Alain Allemand, que le réseau de Free est actif.À lire aussiNuméros illimités : 183 millions d’euros d’amende pour Orange et SFRMais du côté technique, chez les ingénieurs d’Orange, on entend un autre son de cloche. L’un des salariés de la marque indique lui que “la moitié du réseau de Free n’est pas opérationnel.” Seuls 15% des appels sont effectivement transmis par les antennes de Free, là où plus de 30 à 40% devraient l’être.Qui croire donc dans ce fatras d’informations contradictoires? Un ingénieur de Free essaie de tempérer en indiquant que “si nos concurrents testent notre réseau à Paris, ils seront déçus : nous y avons peu d’antennes. Nous en avons un peu partout en France, et pas mal en Bretagne Sud et en Normandie.” Dans cette situation, seule l’Arcep, l’autorité de régulation des telecoms, peut éventuellement donner un arbitrage final en quelques semaines. Le 19 janvier 2012 à 18:00 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Sighting Suchitra Sen

first_imgSuchitra SenI was a boy when I first watched the Uttam-Suchitra starrer, ‘Harano Sur’, in an Old Dhaka cinema hall.Needless to say, soon I became a diehard fan of the pair and watched most of their movies by the 1980s.Since boyhood, I nurtured a desire in my heart – to could see them once up close.I did not get to meet Uttam Kumar, but I had the opportunity to meet Suchitra Sen, and not just once. I met her at a time when she had quit acting and hardly met anyone of the film industry.It was 1989. I went to Kolkata to sign a remake version of my film, ‘Sotyomithya’.Bijoy Khemka, the director of the film, came to know about my boyhood dream of meeting Suchitra Sen. He said it was impossible.While shooting the film, I asked actress Sandhya Roy to do me a favour and let me see Suchitra Sen for once. She also said it was ‘impossible’.AlamgirI left no stone unturned.I requested Supriya Devi, Ranjit Mallick, and others. But, none could help me.Seeing my desperation, one of my old friends, Barin Banerjee, told me, “Look, you are an actor yourself. Why don’t you go to Mrs Sen’s house on your own?”On the next day, Barin drove me to her house at Ballygunge Circular Road.I quietly went to the gate of Suchitra Sen and sent in my business card through the guard with the note, “I’m from Bangladesh. Seeking a visit”.I waited in front of the gate. The guard returned after half an hour or so and told me to phone her next morning at 10:00am.I spent the night sleeplessly and then telephoned her.Suchitra: Are you Alamgir?Alamgir: Yes.Suchitra: Your didi (sister) speaking.Suchitra Sen in ‘Agnigarbha’Alamgir: I want to meet you.Suchitra: I’m busy. Will meet you next time you come to Kolkata.Alamgir: Didi, I can stay as long as you want. But I want to see you.Suchitra: Today is 31 December. Will you party tonight?Alamgir: Yes, I will.Suchitra: Before you go to the party, come over at 6:00pm. I’ll give you 15 minutes in terms of three conditions. 1. You cannot bring anyone else. 2. Cameras are not allowed. 3. You can’t ask me any personal questions.I promised her that I would maintain all the conditions.On 31 December, I reached Suchitra Sen’s house at 5:55pm. It was a big zemindar house. The security guard accompanied me to the first floor. He took me to a long veranda where I awaited Suchitra Sen’s arrival.I was excited. After a while, I heard someone coming. She was wearing a green sari. I stood up and bent to touch her feet in a mark of respect.Suchitra SenSuchitra: Why did you touch my feet?Alamgir: I can’t resist  receiving blessings from a great artiste like you.Suchitra: You are an artiste. So am I. I should take your blessings too as all artistes are equal.Alamgir: I touched your feet as a younger brother, too.Suchitra: It’s fine, then.I have never seen such a woman in my life. She spoke to me in the same manner that she spoke in films. And her smile? It was a different kind of beauty and had an element of magnanimity.While talking to her, I was surprised to know she was quite aware of Bangladeshi cinema. She wanted to know about Anwar Hossain, Razzak, Babita and also praised Shabana and me for our acting.She treated me with tea, cookies and ‘naroos’.I told her, “Why did you quit acting?”In reply, she said, “Is there any director?”Suchitra Sen and Uttam Kumar in ‘Harano Sur’At one stage, Suchitra expressed her wish to visit Bangladesh.Suchitra: Can I go there secretly?Alamgir: I cannot guarantee you that.Suchitra: I want to go Jessore and Pabna.Alamgir: You are from Jessore. Why do you want to visit Pabna?Suchitra: I was born in Pabna and spent quite a lot of time there. I have never visited Jessore though my ancestral home is there.Suchitra Sen and Uttam Kumar in ‘Saptapadi’I was given 15 minutes to stay at Suchitra Sen’s house but spent around one hour.After the meeting, I grew a kind of intimacy with her and met her four times and had telephonic conversations on several occasions.The entrance of Suchitra Sen’s Ballygunge Circular Road house*This piece, originally published in Prothom Alo Bangla, has been rewritten in English by Imam Hossain.last_img read more

Meet the new Nintendo game intended to overthrow Pokémon YoKai Watch

first_imgPokémon has been one of the biggest properties for kids for a long time now, and it has kept its momentum, but it’s also almost old enough to vote at this point. Nintendo won’t be letting go of Pokémon any time soon, but it also won’t be putting all of its appealing-to-kids eggs in one basket. The company already launched a new series, Yo-Kai Watch, two years ago in Japan, and this fall it’s coming to America. IGN got a lengthy demo of the game at San Diego Comic-Con, and it gives us a closer look at the series.Yo-kai Watch is about kids with magic, ghost-revealing watches, and all of the cute and varied ghosts and spirits in the world. Kids with Yo-kai Watches from special capsule machines (those plastic bubble machines you see in front of grocery stores; they’re more elaborate and popular in Japan) can use their watches to discover mischievous Yo-Kai, fight them, and collect more Yo-Kai. Yo-Kai have different elements and classes, and the Yo-Kai Watch user can go on adventures with a team of six of them.Cute? Check. Cross-media? Check. Merchandising? Oh, very check. Yeah, it’s the new Pokémon, or at least it will be if it catches on in the West.Yokai are a real concept in Japanese folklore. They’re the spirits and phenomena that can appear under almost any circumstances and take almost any form. They aren’t ghosts in the conventional sense. Instead of the spirits of deceased people, yokai are the manifestations of almost anything. It’s an all-encompassing term that includes the equivalents of the Western concepts of ghosts, elves, goblins, golems, elementals, werewolves, vampires, centaurs, and the various weirdly specific European supernatural creatures that tend to eat children. You might have heard the Japanese terms oni (ogre), tengu (bird dog goblin), and kitsune (fox spirit). They’re all yokai. This means, like Pokémon, Yo-Kai in Yo-Kai Watch can be whatever the writers and developers can make up.The demo video showed Yo-Kai Watch’s very Japanese themes, and how the localization team is playing with it. The female protagonist, Katie (Fumika in Japan), is chased by a big oni demon in “Terror Time,” a stealth and speed section in the game where the player has to avoid being caught or else he or she (you can also play as Nathan, whose name is Keita in Japan) will have to fight a very powerful enemy. After that, Katie had to steal underwear from an old man in a bath house. You can see why the game has taken two years to come to North America.Unlike Pokémon, where combat is usually one-on-one with the player switching between one of the six Pokémon on their team, battles in Yo-Kai Watch involve all six Yo-Kai on the player’s team simultaneously. They’re shown in a dial (the Yo-Kai Watch) on the lower screen, with the top six Yo-Kai automatically attacking. Changing which Yo-Kai are attacking is just a matter of pressing the L or R buttons and spinning the dial to bring other Yo-Kai to the front. Their special attacks, called Soultimate (groan) moves, require more than just selecting them in a menu, too; different Yo-Kai attacks require spinning the watch face in a circle or drawing symbols on the touch screen.Yo-Kai Watch was developed by Level-5 (Dark Cloud, Dragon Quest, Professor Layton), and hits North America this holiday season. It’s an interesting, cute, and uniquely Japanese game that could catch on when it comes out later this year. Yo-Kai Watch has already seen a sequel in Japan, and Yo-Kai Watch 3 is scheduled to come out in Japan in 2016.last_img read more

first_imgNews | March 19, 2012 New Solution Allows Wireless Transfer of X-Ray Images March 19, 2012 – WPG Americas Inc. and Identive Group Inc. announced that they have teamed to deliver a near field communications (NFC) solution that allows data from high-end medical imaging devices to be transferred to multiple exam room monitors throughout a provider’s office, without cables, wires or additional network investment.Digital radiography (DR) systems are rapidly replacing traditional x-ray systems in medical offices of all sizes because they expose patients to less radiation, provide higher quality images and greatly simplify record keeping.”By making it easier to transfer x-ray images from digital sensors to computer viewing monitors in multiple exam rooms, we can help doctors, dentists and other healthcare providers extend the value of this expensive equipment while ensuring the images are associated with the correct patient,” explained Dave Bowers, vice president, supplier marketing for WPG Americas.The innovative new solution utilizes NFC tags and readers from Identive with software from WPG Americas that associates the images from a digital x-ray camera with the patient records. An NFC tag is affixed to the digital radiography camera. The tag is simply tapped on one of Identive’s SCL3711 NFC readers that are attached to the computer in each exam room. The associated software then reconfiguresthe wireless communication between the camera and local computer to transmit the x-ray images from the camera and associate them with the appropriate patient record.”NFC technology makes it possible to move much of what we do in the physical world to the virtual world, in a way that is easier and more convenient. In the healthcare market there are dozens of areas that will benefit from the use of NFC, from making treatment information available to managing patient records. Partnering with WPG Americas on this NFC transfer solution allowed us to benefit from their extensive understanding of the medical office environment and their strong engineering expertise,” said Dr. Manfred Mueller, executive vice president and managing director of Identive’s ID Infrastructure division.For more information: WPG Americas and Identive FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享last_img read more
