Languages the focus of annual UN World Book and Copyright Day

Bookshops, libraries, schools, publishers, authors’ societies and cultural institutions in more than 100 countries are holding events today to mark the annual World Book and Copyright Day, designated by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to celebrate the enduring value of the written word.This year’s Day focuses on the linguistic aspect of publishing, a theme that coincides with 2008 being proclaimed by the General Assembly as the International Year of Languages.In a message to mark the Day, UNESCO Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura warned that “when a language has no access to the world of publishing, it is excluded – together with those who speak it – from a significant part of the intellectual life and economic activity of society.”Mr. Matsuura added that “in this context, it is then a matter of urgency to give languages broader access to publishing, so as to promote the exchange of books and editorial content.”Today, Amsterdam succeeds Bogotá as World Book Capital City, a designation introduced by UNESCO in 2001 to promote books. The Dutch city is planning to hold many events over the next 12 months to celebrate literature.The title-holder is chosen by representatives of UNESCO, the International Publishers Association, the International Booksellers Federation and the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions, and previous recipients include Madrid, Alexandria, New Delhi, Antwerp, Montreal and Bogotá.Beirut has been selected to succeed Amsterdam in 2009 and the nominations for 2010 – a decision will be made in June – are Guadalajara, Lisbon, Ljubljana, Riga, Saint Petersburg, Vienna and Wellington.UNESCO chose 23 April for World Book and Copyright Day because it is the day in 1616 when the United Kingdom’s William Shakespeare, Spain’s Miguel de Cervantes and Peru’s “El Inca” Garcilaso de la Vega all died. The prominent writers Vladimir Nabokov, Halldor Laxness, Josep Pla, Maurice Druon and Manuel Mejía Vallejo were also either born or died on this day. 23 April 2008Bookshops, libraries, schools, publishers, authors’ societies and cultural institutions in more than 100 countries are holding events today to mark the annual World Book and Copyright Day, designated by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to celebrate the enduring value of the written word. read more

Greek trade mission breaks B2B record

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram In what can be taken as a sign of the tenacity of Greek business to trade its way out of the country’s continuing woes, a trade delegation of leading Greek companies completed the Melbourne leg of a ground breaking trip to Australia on Friday. After two intense days of presentations and meetings, the delegation set a new record for the largest number of business to business meetings ever organised in a single networking event between Greek and Australian companies. Organised by the Hellenic Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (HACCI) in association with the Thessaloniki International Trade Fair (TIF), the warmly welcomed visitors included the Minster for Macedonia and Thrace and the Mayors of the Municipality of Western Mani and the Municipality of Lagadas. Comprising a diverse range of business interests – including food and beverage, renewable energy, engineering, security systems company, fashion accessory business, furniture and home-wares, all were looking for a foothold in the Australian market. They move on to New South Wales energised and optimistic following their experience in Melbourne. As the curtain came down on the Victorian trade interactions, TIF Managing Director Mr Anastasios Tzikas told Neos Kosmos: “Australia is a very important market for Greece – mainly because of the strong Greek contingency which can serve as the bridge.“The meetings went well and in a very positive climate, and I think that we will have specific results.” Mr Tzikas said he was keen for momentum to be kept up after a strong start to the partnerships conceived so far. “There will have to be a follow up and continuation of the connections made,” said TIF’s MD. “A first step will be the participation of Australia in the Thessaloniki International Trade Fair next September and the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between TIF, HACCI and the Victorian Employers’ Chamber of Commerce and Industry.” A spokesperson for HACCI told Neos Kosmos that the trade mission in Victoria had been a unparalleled success: “Over eighty B2B meetings were organised for the companies over the two days. This is the first mission of what will surely be several more to follow.” Companies who took part included AIAS Engineering – specialists in solar energy technologies, AKROTHEA – winery producers and bottlers of organic wine, ALFA WOOD S.A. – wood processing, ELEONES of CHALKIDIKI S.A. – olive production, ENPOKA S.A. – ouzo and tsipouro EVDERMIA – dermatological products, GLS Fused Glass, IMIA furniture, MONDOABEE / Unitrade Group – food products, OLYMPIA ELECTRONICS, PELOPAC SA food products, PERIDEO S.A. – jewellery, TECHNOPOLIS THESSALONIKIS S.A. – Thessaloniki business park and THESSALONIKI INTERNATIONAL TRADE FAIR Australian companies wishing to sign up for B2B meetings in Sydney which take place on Tuesday Nov 27 at the Sydney Convention Centre, should contact HACCI on 03 9602 2977 or read more

Houston Palestine Film Festival Addresses Provocative Cultural Issues

first_img X 00:00 /02:15 Listen Share Amy BishopDegrade, a film by Tarzan and Arab NasserA few of the films in this year’s Houston Palestine Film Festival will strike a chord with the audience, especially one titled, Sara 2014.“It discusses an appalling topic, which is honor killing,” says Khalil Abu Sharekh, president of the HPFF. This is the U.S. premiere for Sara 2014, a film by director Khalil al Mozian, whose work is regarded as being too controversial back home in Gaza.“Unfortunately, it was banned,” Sharekh says. “And Hamas refused to show his film on the big screen.”That’s why most of the films are easier to screen outside of West Bank and Gaza than inside. To the surprise of many, the director was granted a visa to the U.S. to attend the premiere in Houston and is giving a Q&A after the movie.Also in this year’s lineup is Degrade, a story of 13 women who find themselves stuck in a beauty salon as war breaks out in the street. It’s critical of Hamas government, which makes it edgy, Sharekh explains.HPFFScene from Speed Sisters, a film about the first all-female race car driving team in the Middle East.But some of the festival’s films are more lighthearted, such as Speed Sisters, about a team of all-female race car drivers who are competing head-to-head with Palestinian men in the West Bank.This is the HPFF’s largest festival in its ten-year history, spanning three weekends. They’re starting to put more effort into attracting a particular demographic in Houston that’s growing.  Specifically, Palestinians who are born and raised here, but struggling to shape and form their own identity as being American-Palestinians.But film has a unique way of breaking through cultural barriers while delivering powerful messages.“People want to share their stories,”  Sharekh says. “People want the world to hear their voices. And there’s no better way than through art.”The festival runs through May 28th at the Rice University Media Center. To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code:last_img read more

Smart Specs Autofocus Near or Far

first_imgStay on target For the love of science, stop cluttering your house with cheap plastic reading glasses.Engineers at the University of Utah developed smart specs with liquid-based adaptive lenses that automatically focus on whatever a person sees—near or far.Not yet ready for primetime, the technology could one day replace ready readers: over-the-counter frames that offer clearer vision to people with presbyopia and hyperopia. But the non-prescription magnifiers are only a temporary fix.“Most people who get reading glasses have to put them on and take them off all the time,” University of Utah instructor Carlos Mastrangelo (pictured, right) said in a statement. “You don’t have to do that anymore. You put these on, and it’s always clear.”Lucky for us, the human eye comes with a built-in lens that naturally adjusts the focal depth. But as people age, that lens loses its ability to change focus, leaving folks at the mercy of drug-store and supermarket reading glasses displays.University of Utah College of EngineeringIn an attempt to correct for that unavoidable damage, engineering professor Mastrangelo and doctoral student Nazmul Hasan (pictured, left) created eyeglass lenses made of glycerin—a thick colorless liquid, often used in electronic cigarettes, antifreeze, electric race cars, and various foodstuffs.Flexible rubber-like membranes on the back of the lens connect to mechanical actuators that push back and forth “like a transparent piston,” the University press release said.“The focal length of the glasses depends on the shape of the lens, so to change the optical power we actually have to change the membrane shape,” Mastrangelo explained.First-time users simply input their eyeglasses prescription into an accompanying smartphone app, which calibrates the lenses via Bluetooth. And, theoretically, wearers will never have to buy another pair of specs again.There’s one catch, though: The current prototype—invented by Mastrangelo, Hasan, and their researchers—looks like Harry Potter blinkers on steroids. Round, bulky, and altogether unfashionable, the battery-powered frames measure the distance from the glasses to an object via pulses of infrared light; the lenses can change focus from one object to another in 14 milliseconds.The team is working to improve the design—first displayed at January’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas—to make them smaller and lighter. A “more attractive” pair of spectacles, Mastrangelo said, could hit shelves as soon as 2020; startup Sharpeyes LLC has been created to commercialize the glasses.

Karolinska University Hospital recently acquired Elekta’s fifth generation radiosurgery system, Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion. Since January, Karolinska clinicians have been using the system to treat more patients per day and tumors that used to be hard to reach. Physicians also are much more easily treating multiple metastases in a single session. While the clinicians are currently treating traditional Gamma Knife indications, such as metastases, meningiomas, arteriovenous malformations, dural fistulas, acoustic neuromas, the immediate impact Perfexion has made is the ease with which physicians can treat two or more metastases in one session. “We treat five to 10 metastases on a regular basis, because the automated collimator makes it possible to rapidly plan and treat multiple tumor isocenters,” Karolinska neurosurgeon Ernest Dodoo explained. “Suddenly, it is feasible to treat everything we see. Now, the question is if it makes sense clinically from a therapy standpoint.” Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion replaced two earlier generation Leksell Gamma Knife 4C systems, one at Sophiahemmet Hospital and the other at Karolinska University Hospital. Each had been treating about 250 patients per year for the last three years. On Jan. 11, Karolinska used Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion to treat its first case, a patient with a glioblastoma. Since then, Karolinska has treated 120 patients with Perfexion and this single system already rivals the daily patient volume of the previous systems by virtue of its unique features. “We treated five patients in one day last week, including two quite complex cases,” Dr. Dodoo recalled. “With either of our previous systems that would have been logistically difficult. With Perfexion, up to five patients per day is absolutely realistic.”In addition to the system’s automated collimator, the enhanced planning system for Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion also is boosting the efficiency of Karolinska’s radiosurgery practice.”Planning is a lot easier, more intuitive and very user friendly,” Dr. Dodoo noted. “We can visualize the isodose lines simultaneously as we trace them and the dynamic shaping makes dose planning much simpler. It really has changed our approach.” FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiation Therapy | August 02, 2019 Varian Showcases Cancer Care Systems and Software at AAPM 2019 Varian showcased systems and software from its cancer care portfolio, including the Identify Guidance System, at the… read more News | Proton Therapy | August 06, 2019 IBA Signs Contract to Install Proton Therapy Center in Kansas IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A.) recently signed a contract and received the first payment for a Proteus One solution… read more News | Patient Positioning Radiation Therapy | August 07, 2019 Qfix kVue One Proton Couch Top Validated by Mevion Medical Systems Qfix and Mevion Medical Systems announced that a special version of the kVue One Proton couch top is now both validated… read more The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.

A new PET/CT scanner has been introduced that helps address the increasing cost pressures faced by healthcare providers. GE Healthcare’s Optima PET/CT 560 combines superb image quality, high productivity and a patient-friendly experience that can continuously deliver ongoing value over time.It offers efficiency and investment protection with the capability to grow with the future needs of the clinical practice. It also helps enable clinical confidence with small lesion detectability and offers a simplified and streamlined workflow, affordability and flexibility.The scanner was designed to help physicians put patients’ needs first. It enables a full 2-meter scan range—especially important when imaging skin and bone. Clinicians can complete a full head-to-toe-scan in one pass for greater patient comfort and convenience, and position taller patients on the table with greater ease. This saves up to 15 minutes per exam by eliminating patient repositioning and potentially boosting scanning efficiency and patient throughput.Advanced GE VUE Point HD intelligent 3-D iterative reconstruction technique enhances resolution for uncompromised image quality that helps enable clinicians to confidently detect small lesions and increase quantitative accuracy.Based on the Broselow-Luten Pediatric system, the default PET/CT protocols are specifically designed to help reduce CT radiation exposure in FDG pediatric exams to meet ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable) guidelines. With an intuitive interface dedicated to pediatric examinations, physicians select from color-coded protocols set in advance to suit a child’s specific weight.In addition, it uses a 3-D modulation algorithm, which automatically adjusts the mA as clinicians scan along the x-y-z axes. The modulation maintains CT image quality and reduces dose up to 40 percent.The system is fully upgradeable to the GE Healthcare Discovery PET/CT 600 series as department needs grow and change. Available in 8-slice or 16-slice configurations, the Optima PET/CT 560 can be operated as a standalone CT scanner. With its exceptional power, remarkable speed, high-resolution and low-dose imaging, and full diagnostic capabilities, it can help increase patient imaging volumes and revenues.Operators will appreciate the simplicity of the workflow. The user interface is simplified for fast exam set-up and the compact and ergonomic operators console is designed for flexibility and comfort of the operator. Daily Quality Assurance at the start of the scanning day is quick and efficient with one button push and less than 10 minutes a day all with no additional exposure to the staff with the automated source loader. Fast reconstruction times deliver images to clinicians sooner, allowing decision-making before a patient is even off the table.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | PET-CT | August 15, 2019 United Imaging Announces First U.S. Clinical Installation of uExplorer Total-body PET/CT United Imaging announced that its uExplorer total-body positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) system… read more Related Content The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s.last_img read more
