Govt makes a succession of payments to catch up on InterHealth Canada

first_img Related Items:interhealth canada, payments, premier rufus ewing, tci hospitals Beaches puts former Premier on blast about controversial pier Row over Grand Turk infrastructure reaches fever pitch in Parliament Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 03 Jun 2015 – Government said it would clear up back monies owed to InterHealth Canada to ensure there was no disruption in service to the general public.Premier, Hon. Dr. Rufus Ewing: “Another payment is being processed currently to be paid either today or tomorrow for the month of April, in the amount of $2,264,212 and the payment for the month of May, because we pay in advance of the month, the payment for May will be made shortly.”This information surfaced during May 12, 2015 House of Assembly Debate, where the Premier admitted that payments to Interhealth Canada were not up to date, due in large part to discrepancies in the billing to government. A parliamentary questioned leveled at the Nation’s leader and Health Minister by the Opposition Leader revealed that TCIG is behind on the clinical payments but not the infracal payments. Premier, Hon. Dr. Rufus Ewing: “The delays were due mainly because there were some discrepancies and due to lack of information and there was some dispute in regards to the invoices, those have been clarified – partially, but to the satisfaction that they payment – we think it is prudent that the payment be made so as to not put in jeopardy the provision of the clinical services at the hospital to the people so that all individuals can get their clinical care. Nonetheless, we still will be in search of additional information that is required to make the necessary adjustments.”In total, TCIG pays nearly $4 million per month for the clinical and infracal costs for our TCI Hospitals combined. The Premier said the invoices in dispute are likely to change and that the reconciliation process takes place quarterly. During that Question and Answer period on May 12, it was also replied that the Draft Immigration Bill would be tabled in parliament before the end of June.

Samsung Adobe Partner for Papergarden Magazine Service

first_imgSamsung has developed a new magazine app service called Papergarden and only publishers that have built their digital magazines using Adobe’s DPS, such as Condé Nast, Hearst and National Geographic, will be viewable in the app.The service, integrated with Adobe’s native Android Viewer, will be available in the Samsung Galaxy Tab S. Papergarden, essentially a mini-Newsstand, comes pre-installed on the tablet. The service allows a unique sampling function for potential subscribers, enabling them to browse articles before purchasing a title. Purchase options are also automatically shown to the viewer, including whether that person is a current subscriber. And consumers can purchase issues or subscriptions without having to first download the magazine app.The Samsung partnership was announced as part of a broader upgrade of Adobe’s DPS, which includes an enhanced push notification function that supports deep linking. Through Adobe Analytics, publishers can set up reader segments and target specific push notifications, directly linking them to a pre-selected article, for example.Also part of the upgrade is DPS integration with CRM soutions like Salesforce, which lets sales teams track and record which content is being viewed during meetings with clients.last_img read more

Prabhas Saaho forces Nerkonda Paarvai makers to play safe release of Ajithstarrer

first_imgAjith in Nerkonda Paarvai and Prabhas in Saaho.PR HandoutThe release of Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor’s Saaho in August is apparently giving jitters to the filmmakers, who had planned to release their movies in the same month. The massive hype followed by the gigantic for the recently-released teaser of the multilingual film has come as major worry to other producers and distributors, who are now planning to reschedule the release of their movies.The first such rumour to be heard from the industry is that the makers of Ajith’s Nerkonda Paarvai have decided to pre-pone their release. The Tamil film was scheduled for its release on 10 August, but now it looks like it will be out in July itself. Speculations are rife that Boney Kapoor has decided to release the film early, but yet to finalise the date.The first sign of early release came after the trailer release of Nerkonda Paarvai. However, the official confirmation is awaited.Saaho is a multilingual movie, directed by Sujeeth. It is an action thriller majorly set in the foreign countries. The teaser of the flick, which was released a few days ago, was packed with world-class chase scenes, fights and graphics.The teaser crossed over 60 millions views from all languages which tells the huge craze around the flick. Thus making producers of other films to play safe as releasing along with Saaho might eat into their business.Coming to Nerkonda Paarvai, it is a courtroom drama in which Ajith plays the role of an aged lawyer who fights for the three women falsely accused of various crimes. The film tries to project the misogyny in the society and how people judge women based on their dress.last_img read more

Health information on internet may reduce trust in doctors

first_imgLooking up health-related information on the internet can cause parents to not trust the diagnosis made by their child’s doctor, potentially leading to delayed treatment, a new study warns.Researchers from Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine in the US recruited 1,374 parent participants who were presented with a profile of a child who “has had a rash and worsening fever for 3 days.” The participants, who averaged 34 years of age and had at least one child under age 18, were then divided into groups. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfIn the first group, participants received screen shots of internet information describing some symptoms of scarlet fever, an infectious disease linked to strep throat that causes rash and fever.Unless treated with antibiotics, scarlet fever can develop into rheumatic fever and, in some cases, lead to heart damage.The second group of participants received screen shots listing select symptoms of Kawasaki disease, a condition in which blood vessels throughout the body become inflamed. It also is accompanied by fever and rash. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsivePrompt treatment with anti-inflammatory drugs is needed to help prevent life-threatening complications such as aneurisms.A third set of parents, the control group, received no internet screen shots. All participants then read that the doctor had diagnosed the child with scarlet fever.Compared to the control group, in which 81.0 per cent of parents reported trusting the physician, 90.5 per cent of parents who had received scarlet fever symptom screen shots reported trusting the physician. Furthermore, fewer parents in the scarlet fever cohort answered that they were likely to seek a second opinion (21.4 per cent), compared to the control group (42.0 per cent).Conversely, only 61.3 per cent of participants who had viewed the screen shots listing rash and fever as symptoms of Kawasaki disease reported trusting the doctors’ diagnosis, and 64.2 per cent reported that they were likely to seek a second opinion.Although there are many advantages of having easily accessible medical information available on the internet, the findings show that “internet-driven interpretation of symptoms” can compromise trust between a doctor and patient, researchers said.”The internet is a powerful information tool, but it is limited by its inability to reason and think,” said Ruth Milanaik, an associate professor at the Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine.”Simply entering a collection of symptoms in a search engine may not reflect the actual medical situation at hand,” Milanaik said. “These computer-generated diagnoses may mislead patients or parents and cause them to question their doctors’ medical abilities and seek a second opinion, thereby delaying treatment,” she added.last_img read more

ReactOS version 049 released with Selfhosting and FastFAT crash fixes

first_imgReactOS, the free and open source “ Windows-like” operating system has been released as a new version. ReactOS 0.4.9 comes with system stability and general consistency improvements such as Self-hosting, shell improvements, FastFAT crash fixes and more. As they target a newer release every three months, more focus is given on improvements with fewer headliner changes. ReactOS is now capable of Self-Hosting Self-hosting is a process of building an OS on an OS. Self-hosting although considered to be a milestone in any OS’ maturity, is associated with many challenges of its own. First, compiling any large codebase requires high memory usage and storage I/O stressing the operating system. Scheduling is also stressed, as modern build systems in general attempt to produce multiple compilation processes to speed up the build process. ReactOS featured self-hosting in an older version. However, changes brought by subsequent releases, such as the reworking of the kernel, made this self-hosting process non-existent. However, with the recent changes made to the filesystem, Self-hosting is now completely established in the 0.4.9 release. The open source FreeBSD project’s implementation of qsort played a major role in achieving this. Stability brought in by fixing FastFAT crashes ReactOS had significant resource leakages caused by the FastFAT driver. This leakage was eating up the common cache to the point where attempts to copy large files would result in a crash. The new version fixes the FastFAT driver’s behavior by adding in write throttling support and restraining its usage of the cache. A conservative usage of the cache may slow the system a bit during IO operations. However, it ensures that resources remain available to service for large IO operations instead of crashing like before. FastFAT driver also featured a complete rewrite of the support for dirty volumes greatly reducing the chance of file corruptions. This will protect the system from becoming unusable after a crash. Shell Improvements & Features Shell has also received several upgrades. It now has a built-in zipfldr (Zip Folder) extension. With this, ReactOS can also uncompress zipped files without needing to install third-party tools to accomplish it. It also allows users to now choose whether to move, copy, or link a file or folder when they drag it with the right mouse button. Some other new improvements A new mouse properties dialog in the GUI component of the ReactOS installer The inclusion of RAPPS, the gateway program used for getting various applications installed on ReactOS. With this Unicode support, ReactOS can now easily support many different languages. ReactOS can now present itself as Windows 8.1 with the Version APIs. These are just a select few major updates. For a full list of features, upgrades, and improvements, read the changelog.
