Orlando wants kids with Perry

first_imgLondon: Hollywood actor Orlando Bloom says he can’t wait to marry singer Katy Perry and have more children. In an interview with OK! magazine, the Carnival Row actor, who has eight-year-old Flynn with former wife Miranda Kerr, expressed his desire to expand his family, reports femalefirst.co.uk. “I can’t wait to get married again and have more kids at some point in my life. That’s really important to me but I still feel like I’m growing up. Being in this industry, there’s so much public attention and you’re often flung to the far corners of the world,” said Bloom, who is engaged to Perry. “You can spend a lot of time apart and that can be challenging, so I think it’s important to make each relationship your own,” added the actor. The 42-year-old actor admitted that their profession bring more challenges to their relationship. He said: “For many people, you go to work in the morning and then you come home at night – and that’s when you see your partner.”last_img read more

PEI backs off Saskatchewans carbon tax court challenge

first_imgThe Saskatchewan government says it respects Prince Edward Island’s choice not to intervene in its Supreme Court of Canada case over the carbon tax after all.P.E.I. Premier Dennis King said last month his province was joining the court challenge because it wanted to have a chance to speak to the issue if necessary.He said at the time he didn’t want to be perceived as another Progressive Conservative premier joining other provincial conservative leaders fighting the federal government’s carbon tax.A spokesman for Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe’s office confirms P.E.I is no longer joining.Jim Billington says the island initially intervened in case to reserve the right to participate in the proceedings on either side of the debate.“We are encouraged by the support of Alberta, Ontario, Manitoba, Quebec, and New Brunswick in our case, and we respect PEI’s decision not to intervene,” he said in a statement to The Canadian Press.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Aintree Festival drone warning amid fears celebrities helicopters could be grounded

Heathrow airports to a standstill before and after Christmas. Last night the CAA told The Telegraph: “There is indeed an airspace restriction in place around Aintree that only applies to drones. The restriction will be in place 7.30am to 6.30pm each day f and prohibits the use of an unmanned aircraft/drones below 2,000ft. This does not apply to any drone that has permission from Aintree Racecourse.”An Aintree spokesman said: “As well as the police, we’re working with special drone surveillance team who will operate across the Festival with the aim to ensure there is no disruption to the Randox Health Grand National Festival.”On the first day of Aintree today, wind and wet weather were so bad that the renowned Red Devils parachute team were forced to abandon plans to land on the famous course at mark the start of the festival. A specialist drone surveillance team has been recruited to keep watch over the Grand National tomorrow amid fears the flying gadgets are a safety risk to VIPs arriving by helicopter.Drones have blighted horse-racing in recent years, with crime gangs piloting them over courses to give gambling punters an unfair advantage while placing bets before footage is screened to bookmakers.The Jockey Club, owners of Aintree racecourse, is understood to have hired a team of spotters after fears were expressed that they are becoming an increasing safety risk.As well a worry for jockeys and horses, concern has been expressed for helicopters ferrying trainers and wealthy racegoers to courses. Princess Anne and her daughter Zara Tindall are National regulars and many VIPs opt for a 90 minute helicopter flight from London directly into the racecourse landing pad.The Telegraph understands specialist firm Crowded Space are working with Aintree to sport drones, while the Civil Aviation Authority has a restricted airspace in place this week. Crowded Space use technology to detect when the pilot of a drone has broken any regulations, like flying too low or too close to public exclusion zones.Racecourse and a host of sporting venues have reviewed security operations after police and even the army failed to stop drones bringing Gatwick and Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Xbox 360 Kinect Can Track Breasts Become a Bra

first_imgThe minute Microsoft’s Kinect for Xbox 360 hit store shelves, users began tearing it up to come up with clever uses for the motion controller. This has to be one of the odder applications with seen for the device so far (there will surely be even stranger ones in the future).Kinect hacker Dan Wilcox has managed to program the device to roughly detect a user’s breasts–Wilcox uses his own “manboobs” for a decidedly gender neutral take on the potentially super-creepy hack. With the hack, the Kinect “guesses” where the user’s breasts are and then tracks movments to maintain the spot. There’s a full video of the hack in action, with the device overlaying all manner of coverage on top of Wilcox’s naked torso. We haven’t linked directly to it, because it may not be safe for work, depend on your job’s particular policy toward male breasts and coarse-ish language.last_img read more

29 Chicago sunrises captured in beautiful timelapse video

first_imgWe’ve seen beautiful time-lapse videos of the Swiss Alps, North Carolina’s Outer Banks, the Eastern Sierra Death Valley, and the Milky Way Galaxy. Our new favorite time-lapse video, however, takes us away from nature and to the great city of Chicago. If you don’t have the luxury of waking up in the Windy City every morning, photographer Craig Shimala has collected a month’s worth of Chicago sunrises for our viewing pleasure.Shimala decided to photograph all of June’s sunrises since June was the first month in the last year that he didn’t have any travel plans. He wanted to challenge himself to wake up every morning around 5 a.m. to capture the downtown Chicago sunrise. Shimala came close to his goal, waking up 29 out of the 30 days.AdChoices广告The shots in the video below are in sequential order. Chicago’s known for having some difficult weather at times, and nine out of the 30 days were either rainy or brought heavily overcast skies. He left those nine days out of the footage since “it wasn’t much to look at.”The ones left in the video are definitely worth a look. The video features the EL train zipping by in the morning, the factory smoke stacks going from smokeless to fuming, and some pretty amazing colors appearing in the sky as the sun rises. There’s some great cloud movement, too. The end shot shows each day’s video in calendar format, which is a nice way to finish off the serene video.Shimala used a Canon 7D and an old Canon Rebel with various lenses. He connected the Rebel directly to his laptop. He said that the Rebel had some “dirty sensor issues,” so some of the shots are not exactly perfect. Still, the result is breathtaking. His ISO stayed at 100 for every shot, and the shutter was usually around 1/125. The F-stop varied each day, but was usually between 11-22.The shots were taken every 5 to 10 seconds and then woven together using QuickTime Pro at 60 fps. He used Sony Vegas Movie Studio for the final edit. Shimala wishes the final render was better since there were “too many random chunks of compression.”The photographer hopes to shoot a similar set of time-lapse videos, but instead, setting up a camera that is never touched and capturing the same shot with the same settings every day.via NOTCOTlast_img read more

EXCLUSIVE 61 offer flexibleworking initiatives

first_imgEXCLUSIVE: Almost two-thirds (61%) of employer respondents offer flexible-working initiatives, compared to 54% in 2016, according to research by Employee Benefits and Staffcare.The Employee Benefits/Staffcare Benefits research 2017, which surveyed 271 employer respondents in February-March 2017, also found that extra holidays for long service or life events (53%), retail and leisure discounts (49%), enhanced parental leave (36%), and dining cards (34%) also feature in the top five lifestyle benefits provided by respondents.Over the years, extra holiday for long service has consistently appeared in the list of respondents’ most commonly offered core benefits.While the proportion of respondents offering enhanced parental leave and flexible-working arrangements has increased slightly over the last year, there has been no significant rise in the proportion of respondents providing eldercare and emergency care support. Meanwhile, 15% of respondents offer emergency childcare as a benefit, with the majority of these respondents providing it as a core benefit for all staff (81%).A higher proportion of those respondents offering dining cards, as well as retail and leisure discounts, are doing so on a voluntary basis. This year, 64% of respondents that offer dining cards do so through their voluntary benefits scheme, compared to 32% in 2016.Although 52% of respondents that provide retail and leisure discounts now do so as a core benefit to all staff and 46% do so through their voluntary benefits programme, 70% of respondents that offered this benefit in 2016 provided this as a core benefit for their entire workforce and 21% did so on a voluntary basis. While not directly comparable, these were also the key ways in which respondents offered retail and leisure discounts to staff back in 2009 and 2013; 23% of respondents to the Benefits research 2009 included retail and dining discounts within their voluntary benefits programme, rising to 32% in 2013, while 16% included these discounts within their core benefits package for all staff in both years.More than a quarter (27%) of respondents’ organisations provide subsidised catering for employees. This was also the most frequently offered on-site service among respondents in 2016 (26%).The proportion of respondents providing on-site services for employees, however, remains relatively low. This may be due to the space that is required to do so or employers’ priorities when it comes to the ways in which they choose to invest in their workforces’ health and wellbeing.Read the full Employee Benefits/Staffcare Benefits research 2017.last_img read more

Hippocampal Sparing Prevents WholeBrain Radiotherapy Cognitive Side Effects

first_img October 23, 2018 — Whole-brain radiotherapy can be delivered more safely to patients with brain metastases by avoiding the hippocampus, according to a randomized phase III NRG Oncology trial. Trial results were presented at the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) annual meeting, Oct. 21-24 in San Antonio, Texas.To study the hypothesis that radiation to the hippocampal stem cells plays a role in cognitive decline, 518 patients were randomized to whole-brain radiotherapy plus memantine with or without hippocampal avoidance. The results of the clinical trial found a 26 percent relative reduction in risk of cognitive toxicity following whole-brain radiation therapy with hippocampal avoidance versus whole brain radiotherapy. The cognitive function benefit of hippocampal avoidance did not differ by age.“This study demonstrates that we can deliver whole brain radiotherapy with similar cognitive outcomes as radiosurgery,” said lead author and co-principal investigator of the phase III trial Vinai Gondi, M.D., director of research at the Northwestern Medicine Chicago Proton Center and co-director of the Brain Tumor Center at Northwestern Medicine Cancer Center Warrenville. “These trial results revolutionize our understanding of the cognitive effects of brain irradiation in a manner that has far-reaching implications in terms of the safer radiotherapy treatment of primary or metastatic brain tumors.”Brain metastases, cancer cells that have spread to the brain from primary tumors in other organs, is one of the most common cancer conditions managed by radiation oncologists. Due to concerns about cognitive decline, whole-brain radiotherapy is currently often the last resort, even though it is one of the most effective treatments for brain metastases.“This hippocampal-sparing approach reduces both the risk of growth of new brain metastases and the risk of cognitive decline, and no prior study has ever demonstrated this dual effect,” added Walter J. Curran, M.D., executive director of the Winship Cancer Institute at Emory University and an NRG Oncology Group Chair.By establishing that the hippocampal region is sensitive to radiation, treatment plans for brain metastases or other brain tumors can employ advanced techniques such as intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) or proton therapy to reduce dose to the hippocampus and offer brain therapy with less toxicity.“Our phase III trial not only provides evidence for practice-change in the management of brain metastases, but also builds upon decades of preclinical and clinical research to definitely establish the hippocampus as a radiosensitive and cognition-specific organ at risk during brain irradiation,” said Gondi.Read the study abstract here.Read more about the Late-breaking Radiation Therapy Clinical Trials at ASTRO 2018.

US expects South China Sea tensions to rise

first_img Top Stories Clinton was criticized in official Chinese media during the visit, and she exchanged blunt words with Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi over how to end the bloodshed in Syria. She and Yang also pointedly disagreed over the South China Sea, where the Obama administration fears tensions stoked by nationalism will continue to rise over competing claims between China and its smaller neighbors, some of whom have their own overlapping claims.“As was evident yesterday, there is a huge amount going on where the United States and China need to consult,” Clinton said, citing Iran and North Korea as well as Syria and the South China Sea.She said she personally and the U.S. were “not going to shy away from standing up for our strategic interests and in expressing clearly where we differ.”China is resisting a push by the U.S. and other countries for U.N. sanctions against Syria to put pressure on President Bashar Assad’s regime, saying the civil war there must be resolved through negotiations. Beijing also wants to negotiate several territorial disputes over the resource-rich South China Sea individually with its neighbors, rejecting the speedy implementation of a code of conduct to prevent clashes and multilateral negotiations that the U.S. advocates. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement She said it was important for the U.S. and China to talk ahead of a number of international gatherings, including the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit this weekend in Vladivostok, Russia, the U.N. General Assembly and the East Asia Summit.Clinton is winding down an 11-day, six-nation tour through the Asia-Pacific. After stops in the Cook Islands, Indonesia, China, East Timor and Brunei, she heads to Russia on Friday for the APEC forum.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Associated PressBANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, Brunei (AP) – U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday that her talks in China this week were useful despite highlighting sharp differences between Washington and Beijing over key international issues from Syria’s civil war to territorial disputes in the South China Sea.“Even when we disagree _ believe me we can talk very frankly now _ we can explore the toughest issues without imperiling the whole relationship,” Clinton said in Dili, East Timor, a day after she met President Hu Jintao and other Chinese officials in Beijing.

However, speaking next to Clinton on Wednesday, Yang said the disputes were no one’s business but the “directly concerned” countries.Clinton said Thursday that “the mark of a mature relationship, whether it is between nations or between people, is not whether we agree on everything _ because that is highly unlikely between nations and people _ but whether we can work through the issues that are difficult.” Bottoms up!

Whats Holding Back Millennials From Homeownership

first_img March 23, 2016 595 Views The millennial generation has been dubbed the generation that is not interested in purchasing a home, whether it be due to renting, living with their parents, or because they are saddled with student loan debt. On the surface, it would appear that millennials are not interested in becoming homeowners.According to an analysis from NerdWallet, the idea that millennials do not want to be homeowners is false, and in fact, the majority of this generation would prefer owning over renting. But they are holding off on homeownership because of real and perceived difficulties in affording it.According to the report, millennials total 66 million individuals and 24 million independent households and the median age for first-time homebuyers has remained virtually unchanged for the past 40 years.In addition, two-thirds of millennials haven’t reached that homebuying age of 31, and 22 percent are under 25 years old. Millennials are renting for an average of six years before buying, compared with an average of five years for renters in 1980. Millennials are expected to form 20 million new households by 2025.“There’s a strong indication that millennials do want to become homeowners, which is quite different from what we’ve heard,” says Chris Ling, Mortgage Manager at NerdWallet. “While overall homeownership has declined, millennials do see the long-term value in owning a home.”According to NerdWallet, millennials stated that the biggest obstacles to getting a mortgage are:Insufficient credit score or historyAffording the down payment or closing costsInsufficient income for monthly paymentsToo much existing debtNerdWallet found that many millennials are unaware of down-payment options to help them obtain a mortgage loan.“Many millennials believe they are unable to afford homes, when really many of them are unaware of the different financing options that exist — particularly those that allow for a down payment of 6 percent or less,” Ling says.Another reason that millennials are staying away from homeownership is student loan debt, the data found.“With student debt on the rise, there’s been a lot of speculation about whether the cost of a college degree hurts an individual’s ability to buy a home,” Ling explained. “From what we’ve seen, getting a four-year degree or higher is actually positively associated with homeownership — even when accounting for debt.”NerdWallet found that barriers to homeownership may be not be as high as many millennials perceive them to be. “Although factors like low savings or a poor credit score might seem insurmountable, there’s a variety of resources available to help younger Americans buy their first homes,” the report said.“Millennials—and first-time homebuyers in general—should never just assume they can’t afford a home. The first step to owning a home is knowing how you can finance it, so you should always research your options,” Ling noted. “Buying a home may be more of a possibility than you realize.” What’s Holding Back Millennials From Homeownership? in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News, Originationcenter_img Share Homeownership Millennials NerdWallet 2016-03-23 Staff Writerlast_img read more
