What I Want to Tell Young People

first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now There will be people more talented than you are. There will be many people who are brighter than you are. There will be people who were born with tremendous advantages that you can’t even imagine. But whether any of them can out-hustle you is totally up to you. If you hustle, you will find that almost no one willing to outwork you.Never be afraid to ask for what you want. Especially if you can create value.Do the highest quality work possible. If it takes more time, make the investment. If you need to start over, do so. Your work is a reflection of you as a person, and some part of you that you don’t yet recognize may be your legacy.You will find joy in your work. You may not be able to find joy in a particular job. But your work isn’t the same thing as your job. You need to pursue your work, even if you have to hold down a job while you do so. if that confuses you, just wait. It will be very important to you later.Never, ever, ever stop growing. In a world where so many people believe their are limits or wait for permission, know that there are no boundaries to what you can be, what you can do, what you can have, and what you can contribute. Any limit you perceive is an illness that you need to rid yourself of immediately.Don’t worry about being hurt when it comes to love. You will get hurt. The very act of loving deeply makes you vulnerable, but it’s totally worth it.Money is an amplifier. If you are a horrible person, money will make you more horrible. If you are person who is afraid of losing something, money will make you more afraid. If you are a person who sees money as a vehicle for freedom and security, then money will provide that for you. If you are a person who sees money as way to do good for others in need, it will amplify your ability to do that.The most important things in life are your relationships. But relationships are expensive. They take a major investment of time and energy. But those investments are the most important investments you can make. When you look back from way down the road you have traveled, your relationships are how you are going to measure your life.Practice being compassionate. People walk their own paths, and they are operating from a different set of beliefs and experiences, ones that you don’t know or understand. You don’t know what pain they carry or how they acquired their scars, the visible ones and the ones you cannot see. Compassion is strength.Be creative. Exercise that set of attributes and skills. The world you are entering now is going to need people with the ability to think and be creative more than almost anything else. The only thing that will be needed more will be strong, moral leaders, something that from time to time has been in short supply. This is one of those times.When things seem dark, when it seems like you can’t figure things out, when you feel like everything that can go wrong has gone wrong or is in the process of doing so, wake up really early, go outside and sit facing East. Repeat this as many times as is necessary.last_img read more

Sumatra Tsunami Threat Remains

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA—A great offshore earthquake, like the one that killed hundreds of thousands when it struck off Indonesia’s Sumatra coast in December 2004, would seem to offer a small measure of solace to survivors: The offshore tectonic fault that caused the temblor should require many centuries to recharge. Now, it appears such optimism is unwarranted. Three speakers here at the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union earlier this month warned that the Indian Ocean coast of northern Sumatra could suffer another tsunami disaster in as few as 60 years.That sobering news came in three talks by paleoseismologists—researchers who literally dig up records of past earthquakes and tsunamis—associated with Nanyang Technological University’s Earth Observatory of Singapore. Charles Rubin, Kerry Sieh, Jessica Pilarczyk, and their colleagues had been reading the millennia-long histories of past tsunamis in three kinds of geologic records and determining the age of each tsunami recorded there using radioactive carbon-14 dating.The most novel record was found in a cave located 200 meters from the present-day coastline. Only the far-reaching inland surge of a tsunami can carry sand into this cave, where it can then be deposited layer by layer, tsunami by tsunami. Conveniently enough for the researchers, tsunami deposits in this cave are demarcated by dark layers of guano deposited between tsunamis by the cave’s resident bats. Other records were retrieved from tsunami deposits in coastal wetlands and exposed in eroding sea cliffs.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)Taken together, the new records paint a disconcerting picture of highly erratic tsunami recurrence. Two tsunamis struck the northern Sumatra coast in quick succession about 600 years before the 2004 tsunami. Previous, more precise dating of coral uplifted by offshore quakes at about that time show the interval between the two tsunamis to have been just 60 years or so. Yet the cave record lacks tsunamis in a 1900-year interval between about 5400 years ago—when a thick tsunami deposit was laid down—and about 3300 years ago. Then, about five lesser tsunamis, to judge by the thickness of their deposits, sloshed into the cave in the next 500 years. “The basic conclusion, then, appears to be that big tsunamis vary in recurrence [time], from only 60 years to about 2000 years,” Sieh writes in an e-mail.“It seems Mother Nature has this capricious behavior,” says seismologist Emile Okal of Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, who was not involved in the work. “We could be in for something in the next 50 to 100 years. That’s both intriguing and somewhat frightening.” Figuring out how a single offshore fault can rupture—perhaps in a sequence of different segments—to produce such a varied history of tsunamis will take many more records like the one in the guano-laced cave.last_img read more

Pakistan, Korea secure easy wins to keep semifinal hopes alive

first_imgBy Tapan Mohanta Dubai, Jun 24 (PTI) Pakistan and Korea secured easy wins over their respective opponents to open their accounts and keep their semifinal hopes alive in the Kabaddi Masters at the Al Wasl Sports Complex here today. In a group A match, Pakistan prevailed over Kenya 43-21 to finish the first leg matches with five points, as India led with 10 points. Korea demolished a helpless Argentina 72-16 in the first match of the day to open their account after going down to Iran in their tournament opener. In group B, Iran lead the table with 10 points, followed by Korea while Argentina are winless from two matches. The second and final leg will begin tomorrow with Iran taking on Korea, while India lock horns with Pakistan. Two teams from each group make the semifinals, slated for June 29, in the six-nation kabaddi meet that will conclude on June 30. Pakistan executed two all-outs en route to a 23-5 lead at half time as Kenya defence struggle to cope. Pakistan were also bolstered by the joining of their top two raiders Muzammal Hussain and Sajjat Shaukat who arrived this morning after a facing visa hurdles. But coach Nabeel Ahmed preferred to put them on the bench to keep them fresh for the crucial clash against India tomorrow. Aided by a successful review for bonus point, Kenya put up a much improved show in the second half but Pakistan defence showed strong teamwork to thwart all their efforts for an all-out. The first match of the day proved to be a lopsided affair as Argentina were done in by their inexperience.advertisement Such was the Koreans’ dominance that Argentines scored their first point after six minutes with Korea already ahead 12-1. By half time, Korea had inflicted four all-outs and took a huge 44-6 lead. The second half was no different as the Koreans’ solid defence pinned down the inexperienced Argentine raiders with ease. Argentina reached double figures in the 30th minute but still trailed by 47 points to go down in a complete mismatch of sorts. The meet is a brainchild of International Kabaddi Federation in partnership with Star India Pvt Ltd with support of the Dubai Sports Council. PTI TAP AHAHlast_img read more

Kevin Peterson Wants to Stick It to the SEC in the Sugar Bowl

first_imgBerry Tramel wrote a nice post today about why it’s important for the Big 12 for OSU to beat Ole Miss in the Sugar Bowl (mostly because the SEC has owned the Big 12 in the last decade). He quoted Kevin Peterson who seems, uh, fired up about getting after it with Laquon Treadwell and Co.“We gotta win,” Peterson told the Oklahoman. “We gotta win. We gotta go out there and show ‘em we’re the best conference. We play good ball here. We send guys to the NFL here. We have great players here. We gotta go out there and get the win. That’s the only thing that can really shut some SEC mouths.”I like that. Shut some SEC mouths. It’s not a direct shot at Ole Miss (which you don’t want to do), but he’s clearly not shying away from the moment. Peterson also talked about his career and the fact that he has no regrets. This always makes me nostalgic.“When I came in, I was already hungry. I was ready to show everyone what I could do. You don’t get as many shots to do that when you come from a small school like I did. Guys like Justin Gilbert really showed me that once you get to this level, everyone is on the same level as you. It’s the same playing field, everyone has the same opportunity to do the same things. You have to put yourself above people.“You always have some thoughts from certain games. You missed a tackle, you gave up a touchdown, things like that, but I don’t regret anything that I’ve done here. This has been the most enjoyable part of my life. All of my best friends are her. I feel like I’ve been able to do the right things here to set myself up to continue on the right path for the rest of my life.”Great stuff from one of the good ones.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

400 Workers Confront Rio Tinto for Sacking Aussie Crews

first_imgzoom More than four hundred workers from several unions took to the streets accusing miner Rio Tinto of complicity in sacking Australian seafarers and replacing them with foreign workers paid as little as USD 2-an-hour, according to Maritime Union of Australia (MUA).The rally began outside of Brisbane’s Central Station and made its way through the city streets to Rio’s offices on Albert Street.Maritime Union of Australia Queensland Deputy Branch Secretary Jason Miners said the Federal Government was complicit in Rio Tinto’s actions in granting them a licence to exploit a loophole in domestic shipping legislation.“Rio made USD 806 million in just six months, they made more profit than Switzerland’s Gross Domestic Product,” Miners said.“A massive chunk of that USD 806 million was made here from the minerals that all Australians own and we’re being repaid by being unceremoniously sacked from our jobs, to me that’s abhorrent.“These jobs aren’t offshored, they still exist. However, Pacific Aluminium have been given the green light by the government to have foreign ships of shame with dodgy environmental, safety and labour practices on our coastal trade.”MUA Assistant National Secretary Ian Bray, along with Queensland Assistant Secretary Paul Gallagher and the ACTU’s Kearney marched into the Rio Tinto offices and handed a letter to the management demanding replacement jobs for the displaced seafarers.Following the brief meeting with Rio Tinto officials, Bray said that Rio has agreed to meeting with the MUA and other maritime unions.“We will continue to agitate, we will continue to organise, we will continue to push the fight, not only here, but around the country and Canberra, or wherever we have to go to make sure our message and our voices are heard,” Bray said.Five crewmembers were marched down the gangway of the CSL Melbourne by more than 30 police in the port of Newcastle. Those same police escorted the foreign replacement crew onto the ship to sail it away.The CSL Melbourne carried alumina from Gladstone to Newcastle for Rio Tinto subsidiary, Pacific Aluminium for more than five years. However, the route between Queensland and New South Wales is still being utilised, only by non-Australian workers not subject to the same rights and conditions as their Australian counterparts.CSL Melbourne’s Australian crew was the second one in the last three months to be sacked and forcibly removed from their vessel. The same situation happened just last month when five crewmembers aboard Alcoa ship the MV Portland were removed by 30 security guards.last_img read more

Assembly President calls on China to support reform of financial institutions

“The enormous economic crisis that we face today threatens to tip millions, perhaps billions, of our people into poverty of catastrophic proportions,” General Assembly President Miguel D’Escoto told a gathering at the China Foreign Affairs University in Beijing.He told the meeting that over 150 participating States at the Financing for Development Conference in Doha at the end of last year had called for a high-level international conference to review the international financial and monetary architecture, including a possible expansion in the representation of institutions such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).The 192-member General Assembly has decided that its President, Mr. D’Escoto, should be responsible for organizing the conference to be held in June.He announced today that he had included Yu Yongding, the Director of the Institute of World Economics and Politics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, as a member of the commission of experts to assist UN Member States in identifying problems and recommending solutions that will be considered in the run up to the June conference.Joseph Stiglitz, who won the Nobel Prize for Economics in 2001 and is a former chief economist at the World Bank, will chair the Commission of Experts on Reforms of the International Monetary and Financial System, which will suggest steps that Member States can take to secure a more stable global economic order.“The coming June conference represents an historic opportunity for the G77 and China,” said Mr. D’Escoto.“A new system is possible that can truly facilitate the integration of the developing countries into global decision making and ensure that the interests and concerns of all counties are taken into account,” he added.The Assembly President noted that the transformation of China as an economic powerhouse has captivated the world, and that it has “demonstrated what wise management, forward planning and cooperation – particularly South-South cooperation – can do.” 25 February 2009The President of the General Assembly today appealed to China to support United Nations initiatives to transform international financial, economic, monetary and trade policies in response to the current global economic and financial crises. read more

Automotive recall fatigue

(Update)With 40 million auto recalls already this year, 2014 is set to be the biggest year ever. And it’s creating what some are calling recall fatigue.More and more drivers are suffering from recall fatigue. They are tired of hearing about recalls and because there have been so many, drivers don’t really think the latest one applies to them. But this is now leading to a startling number of owners not getting their vehicles fixed, which can have serious consequences.There has been a new vehicle recall every week in 2014 — and it’s only halfway through the year. But already the numbers are at an all time high.Phil Edmonston, consumer advocate: “Over 40 million vehicles recalled so far this year, which is more than all the vehicles recalled last year. So this is a record breaking year for recall campaigns.”Another startling statistic — one third of all recalled vehicles will not get repaired. Experts say consumers are suffering from recall fatigue. They’re simply tired of hearing about recalls and are actively ignoring the notices.It’s the manufacturer’s responsibility to notify the owner of a recall. Then the manufacturer and the dealer are jointly responsible for carrying out the repair work free of charge and in a timely manner. But some onus also lies on the owner.Phil Edmonston: “The person who’s selling you their car and you’re buying it used, that person has responsibility to tell you all that they know about the vehicle, if not, they have a certain liability for having failed to disclose certain important parts when you bought the vehicle. The other thing though is that you have a responsibility when buying a vehicle to find out, are there outstanding recall campaigns?”If a person fails to fix a recalled part, they could be held responsible for the damages in an accident. Madeleine Agro is making sure she avoids this: “My vehicle has been recalled and I’ve received a letter from General Motors and we are awaiting parts and it’s going to be as soon as possible.”And it’s easy for the consumer to be proactive. One way is going straight to the manufacturer’s website.Jeff Taylor is with Eccles Auto Service: “Type in your VIN number, vehicle insurance number, which is on the car, ownership, on your insurance, type that in and go from there.”It is the owner’s responsibility to contact the manufacturer to update their address in order to receive the latest notices about recalls. And, if you’re buying a used vehicle and you want to find out whether the repairs have been carried out, you can contact the nearest authorized dealer and they’ll use the VIN number to consult the manufacturer’s database. read more

Japon plus de 7 millions de personnes disent Au revoir lénergie nucléaire

first_imgJapon : plus de 7 millions de personnes disent “Au revoir l’énergie nucléaire”La pétition “Au revoir l’énergie nucléaire” qui a pour objectif de recueillir au moins 10 millions de signatures d’ici à la mi-juillet a déjà obtenu 7,23 millions de paraphes. C’est ce qu’ont annoncé à Tokyo les responsables de l’opération.Des militants anti-nucléaires japonais ont mis en place une pétition intitulée “Au revoir l’énergie nucléaire”. Une initiative qui vise à démontrer que 80% de la population japonaise aspire à se passer d’énergie nucléaire et que réaliser des économies d’énergies supplémentaires est encore possible. Soutenue par des personnalités telles que le prix Nobel de littérature Kenzaburo Oe, le compositeur et pianiste Ryuichi Sakamoto ou encore le journaliste dénonciateur de scandales Satoshi Kamata, la pétition formule diverses exigences.  À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Elle demande l’arrêt définitif et le démantèlement des 50 réacteurs actuellement stoppés, le gel des projets de construction, le renoncement aux surrégénérateurs, la mise en place d’une usine de retraitement et enfin l’accélération de la transition vers les énergies renouvelables. Cette pétition, ouverte aux étrangers, fait bien entendu suite à l’accident de Fukushima. “Depuis cette catastrophe, la nature alentour (prés, champs, forêts, rivières, mers) est polluée et de nombreuses personnes qui vivaient à proximité ont tout perdu”, insistent les militants qui dénoncent une énergie excessivement dangereuse et difficilement maîtrisable. Cités par l’AFP, ils soulignent également que “les répercussions ne se limitent pas aux environs de la centrale. On ignore les effets que cet accident aura sur diverses régions et personnes, particulièrement les enfants”. M. Oe a déclaré hier, lors d’une manifestation qui a rassemblé environ 2.300 personnes en plein Tokyo, que la “pétition possède une puissante force, nous allons continuer”. Et pour cause, sur les 10 millions de signatures attendues, la pétition en compterait déjà 7,23. Plusieurs autres événements anti-nucléaires sont ainsi programmés dans la capitale nippone dans les semaines à venir.Le 8 juin 2012 à 09:37 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

SIDA VIH virus transmission traitement test de quoi sagitil

first_imgSIDA / VIH : virus, transmission, traitement, test, de quoi s’agit-il ?Le virus de l’immunodéficience humaine, ou VIH, est un virus responsable du syndrome d’immunodéficience acquise (SIDA). Comment se transmet-il et comment le soigner ?Définition : qu’est ce que le VIH ?Le virus de l’immunodéficience humaine (VIH) est un virus pouvant causer la maladie appelée syndrome immunodéficience acquise (SIDA). Le VIH est un virus qui s’en prend au système immunitaire, autrement dit les défenses naturelles du corps contre la maladie. C’est pourquoi chez les personnes atteintes du sida, de simples infections anodines comme une grippe ou une bronchite peuvent s’aggraver et devenir très difficiles à traiter, pouvant aller jusqu’à entraîner la mort.La différence entre le VIH et les autres virus est que généralement les virus sont détruits par le système immunitaire. Or, le VIH atteint directement le système immunitaire et prend le contrôle des cellules T CD4. Ces cellules ont pour rôle de gérer la réponse immunitaire lorsqu’un virus se présente. Le VIH utilise ces mêmes cellules pour se répandre, en les endommageant et les détruisant. Le VIH s’attaque par conséquent directement au système immunitaire, dont le but est normalement de combattre les virus.Le VIH est encore aujourd’hui un problème majeur de santé publique. Plus de 34 millions de personnes sont mortes depuis son apparition chez l’homme dans les années 1980.   Transmission du VIHLe VIH se transmet uniquement par les liquides corporels : le sang, le sperme, les sécrétions vaginales, ainsi que le lait maternel. Ces liquides ne peuvent transmettre le virus uniquement lorsqu’ils sont en contact avec une muqueuse, c’est-à-dire une zone qui peut le laisser entrer dans l’organisme (muqueuse buccale, utérine…). Autrement dit, la peau ne laisse pas passer le VIH !Si le risque de transmission par des baisers, ou par l’utilisation de verres ou de couverts avec une personne contaminée n’existe pas, le VIH se transmet le plus souvent au cours d’activités sexuelles non protégées. Il était souvent transmis auparavant via l’échange de seringues chez les personnes utilisant des drogues injectables, mais ce facteur a été considérablement réduit grâce aux mesures visant à distribuer des seringues stériles afin d’éviter ce type d’échange.Symptômes : comment se présente le VIH ?Le tableau clinique de l’infection par le VIH évolue selon les différents stadesde la maladie. Au début, on parle de phase deprimo-infection, ou de première phase. Durant celle-ci, la personne infectée peut rester asymptomatique, ou bien peut développer des symptômes semblables à ceux de la grippe ou de la mononucléose. Les symptômes, qui peuvent persister d’une semaine à un mois puis disparaissent, sont : une fièvre, des maux de gorge, des maux de tête, des rougeurs sur la peau, une grande fatigue ainsi que des douleurs musculaires et articulaires.La deuxième phase, ou phase asymptomatique, est une période durant laquelle la personne séropositive ne présente pas de symptômes, même si le virus s’attaque au système immunitaire en silence.Enfin, la troisième phase, ou phase de SIDA, est une phase durant laquelle les symptômes apparaissent, car le système immunitaire est dépassé par le virus. Elle peut apparaître au bout de 2 à 15 ans après l’infection. Des symptômes peuvent alors devenir plus fréquents, persistants, et parfois chroniques. Ils comprennent, entre autres, une fièvre, des sueurs nocturnes, une perte de poids importante, un gonflement des ganglions, des diarrhées persistantes, des infections cutanées, un essoufflement… Cette phase provoque également l’apparition de certains cancers ou manifestations pathologiques graves. Dépistage : quand faire le test du VIH ?Le test de dépistage classique du VIH est réalisé à partir d’uneprise de sang. Il faut compter six semaines après une exposition au risque avant que la contamination ne soit détectable dans le sang. Il est donc inutile de faire un test avant ce délai. En effet, s’il est effectué trop tôt, il peut être négatif alors que la personne est porteuse du virus. L’obtention du résultat se fait ensuite entre trois semaines et un mois.À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?Il existe également un test de dépistage rapide à partir d’une goutte de sang prélevé au bout d’un doigt. Il permet d’obtenir un résultat fiable en quelques minutes mais nécessite un délai d’au moins trois mois après l’exposition au risque. Traitement : comment vivre avec le VIH ?Il n’existe aujourd’hui aucun traitement permettant de guérir du SIDA. Malgré l’absence de vaccin, il existe cependant des traitements adaptés permettant de bloquer la multiplication du VIH dans leur organisme et ainsi de garder un système immunitaire opérationnel.Ces traitements s’appellent trithérapie et multithérapie car ils combinent l’action de plusieurs molécules antirétrovirales. La trithérapie étant l’association de trois molécules anti-rétrovirales qui empêchent la multiplication du virus et permettent d’augmenter le nombre de globules blancs. À savoir que les antirétroviraux peuvent causer des effets secondaires indésirables à long terme, notamment diabète ou hypercholestérolémie dans 60 % des cas.Le 17 février 2016 à 12:20 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Man United owners have no plans to sell amid Saudi interest

first_imgThe Glazer family have no interest in selling Manchester United or even a stake in it for the near future, amid reports of a £4bn takeover bid from Saudi ArabiaThe Sunday Mirror had linked the Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, who is worth £850bn, with a stunning £4bn takeover of United over the weekend and suggested a formal meeting would take place in the next couple of weeks.This came after United’s share price skyrocketed over the past months that saw shares hit an all-time high on the New York Stock Exchange of $27.65 with Forbes valuing the club at around £3.2bn.This comes 13 years after the Glazer family completed their £790m takeover at Old Trafford, which left United heavily in debt afterwards.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.But the Guardian reports that United owners Joel and Avram Glazer have started no discussions nor do they have any real interest in selling the club.Had the Glazer family sold their shares of the 20-time English champions then they could have left with a massive profit of £2.2bn.United already have business interests in Saudi Arabia due to their partnership with the telecommunications firm Saudi Telecom.last_img read more

Man drives wrong way on I205 in suspected stolen car

first_imgPolice are looking for a man who drove an allegedly stolen Jeep Cherokee north on southbound Interstate 205 before abandoning the vehicle on the hillside and fleeing on foot Wednesday evening.Details were sketchy.Around 6 p.m. a dark green Jeep Cherokee with Oregon plates drove north on a southbound ramp to I-205 and continued driving north on the freeway, according to emergency radio traffic monitored by The Columbian.He abandoned the Jeep on the hillside and bailed out of the car at the Northeast 18th Street overpass, heading west on foot.The man supposedly has blond hair and was wearing a black jacket and carrying a red duffel bag at the time.Police set up a perimeter to the west of I-205 to try and catch him. They also alerted the local Walmart in case he tried to duck in there and blend in. Although police searched several yards, the man was still at large at The Columbian’s press time.last_img read more

Macaus USowned operators to benefit from thawing of USChina trade tensions

first_img Load More 70% of Macau gaming market driven by 400,000 premium players: brokerage The temporary thawing of trade tensions between the United States and China is set to ease concerns surrounding Macau concession renewals and benefit the stocks of Macau’s three US-based concessionaires – Wynn, MGM and Las Vegas Sands (LVS).The potential positives of last week’s G20 Summit – which saw US President Donald Trump and China’s Xi Jinping agree to a 90-day trade truce ahead of further talks – were highlighted in a series of notes from investment bank Morgan Stanley on Monday predicting an improved outlook for the three IR operators. Osaka Governor planning to start operator recruitment process this year New Chief Executive vows to protect Macau’s gaming and tourism industry from harm RelatedPosts It follows recent stock price falls amid concerns that the looming US-China trade war could negatively impact their prospects of having their gaming licenses re-instated upon their looming expiry – MGM in 2020 followed by Wynn and LVS in 2022.“A thawing of the trade tensions between the US and China should alleviate some concerns around Macau concession renewals,” said Morgan Stanley’s Thomas Allen, Praveen Choudhary, Bradford Dalinka and Michael M DeLalio.“While the Macau concession language notes that the licenses must be re-tendered upon expiry, numerous conversations with Macau-focused lawyers, legislators and operators have suggested that the incumbents are best positioned to continue to operate, unless the Chinese/Macau governments decide otherwise.“Given what appears to be an improving trade relationship between US and China, we see a greater likelihood the concessions are renewed, at some cost.”Morgan Stanley noted that Wynn and LVS saw their largest ever quarterly declines in top 100 asset managers’ portfolio allocation in 3Q18, with LVS having US$9 billion of capital withdrawn by three asset managers and Wynn US$4 billion.“This group is primarily made up of long only investment funds that, based on our conversations, saw outsized risk of these companies losing their Macau concessions given the trade tensions between China and the US,” it said.Notably, Morgan Stanley maintains LVS as its preferred Macau stock.“We continue to recommend investors own LVS as the way to play the Macau structural growth story,” it said. “LVS is the mass market share leader in the market (at 30%, second highest has 18% share) driven by the greatest number of hotel rooms (12,000, next closest 4,000). Consensus in our view wrongly assumes LVS loses market share in Macau in 2019 while we believe the continued strength in mass market versus weakness in VIP/premium mass will lead to LVS holding share and driving EBITDA outperformance.“In addition, we see LVS as the front runner to win one of the three casino licenses in Japan, and see $3 to $7 of incremental present value from a Japan license.”The thawing of trade tensions aside, there are also other potential upsides on the horizon for Macau’s gaming stocks including better than expected November GGR growth of 8.5% on the back of strong grind mass as well as impressive numbers utilizing the recently opened Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge.Macau’s Public Security Force last week revealed that 800,000 visitors either entered or departed Macau via the bridge in the first month of operation, representing around 14% of total visitation – well above Morgan Stanley’s 500,000 estimate.last_img read more

Man gets 5 years in prison for global cell phone fraud scheme

first_img Post a comment The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. $999 The scheme focused on making international calls for free. Getty Images A Florida judge slapped a former state resident with a 65-month prison sentence Tuesday after he pleaded guilty to charges linked to a phone cloning ring.Braulio De la Cruz Vasquez, 54, was part of a “sophisticated global cell phone fraud scheme” that stole access to people’s accounts and fraudulently opened new ones using their personal information, the US Department of Justice said in a statement.He set up a “call site” in his West Palm Beach home and used the stolen data to re-program phones he controlled, the department said. From there, De la Cruz’s co-conspirators (four of whom have already been sentenced) would make international calls via the internet and he’d route them through the cloned phones — making the people whose information had been stolen foot the bills, according to the plea agreement.He admitted that his partners sent him around 2,158 numbers owned by US phone account holders between 2011 and 2013 and that he got tens of thousands of dollars from at least one Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) company for routing international calls, the DOJ noted.De la Cruz is a citizen of the Dominican Republic and was extradited from that country to face the charges. He was charged with three counts of fraud, two related to illegal telecom device use and one for identity theft. DJI Osmo Action camera: $261 (save $89) Security Best Buy Comments I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. $520 at HP Use promo code 19LABOR10 to get an unusually good deal on JBL’s interesting hybrid product — not quite headphones, and not quite a traditional speaker, but something you wear like neckphones to listen to music on the go.
