He was arrested during a protest in 2013.He said the rallies are picking up steam at the eleventh hour of the controversial project.Several people are staying near the Muskrat Falls site, but are not allowed near the gate. Learning was heading with a group of people to occupy Premier Dwight Ball’s office in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.He said it’s a symbolic gesture since the premier is in St. John’s. But dozens are expected to rally there today at Newfoundland and Labrador’s legislature building.Methylmercury is the main concern the Labrador Inuit have with the Muskrat Falls project. A Harvard study predicts that vegetation and topsoil left in the flood zone will create the toxin that will flow downstream and contaminate food sources.The Nunatsiavut Government is demanding the province fully clear the reservoir of all trees and vegetation.NunatuKavut President Todd Russell is making an announcement on the Muskrat Falls project this morning at 11am AST. Russell, who represents the Southern Inuit of Labrador, was also arrested during a protest against the project in 2013.Calls to the RCMP about the arrests have not yet been returned.troache@aptn.calast_img read more


Rabat – The Authenticity and Modernity Party (PAM) has joined the parties of the government majority who have granted their support to the Ministry of Interior’s ban of the July 20 demonstration in Al Hoceima.The PAM said in a statement that their decision “came after the party met El Othmani on Wednesday evening, July 19, to discuss developments in Al Hoceima.”During the meeting, which was attended by members of the PAM’s spokesmen, including Muhammad al-Sheikh Baidullah, Aziz Benazuz, Abdullatif Wahbi, and Ibtissam lAzzawi, El Othmani invited the party to express support for the prohibition of the march. El Othmani advocated “for stability, [working] positively with governmental actors to tackle the Rif [issue] and respond to the demands  of the region as well as to follow development projects in Rif through field visits,” wrote the party in a communiqué.The PAM said that it expressed its “appreciation for this initiative, even though it came late, as the prime minister should have communicated [with the party] before taking the decision to prevent the march and not after it.”Having given support to the government’s decision, the PAM called on various social actors supporting the march of July 20 “to avoid any manifestation and cut the road to all those who threaten stability of the country in order to restore stability.”The party also emphasized the need to speed up the implementation of development projects in Al Hoceima in order to engage with the demands of protesters and attend to the suffering of detainees and their families.“Members of PAM are loyal in partaking in any national dynamic that adopts a participatory approach and puts the interest of the homeland and citizens above all odds,” concluded the statement. read more


TORONTO – CIBC (TSX:CM) says its net income slipped to $798 million in the first quarter largely on a one-time charge, the first — and so far only — major Canadian bank to report a year-to-year decline in net income for the quarter.On an adjusted basis, however, CIBC’s profit beat analyst estimates compiled by Thomson Reuters. Adjusted earnings rose to $868 million or $2.15 per share, seven cents above the consensus estimate.Among the negative items that reduced CIBC’s net income in the quarter was a $148-million loss from the settlement of a contract dispute linked to the collapse of Lehman Bros. in 2008. That item reduced CIBC’s first-quarter profit by 27 cents per share.CIBC’s profit was also reduced by one cent per share related to amortization of intangible assets, partially offset by a gain of four cents per share from the sale of a wealth management business that operates in Hong Kong and Singapore.Overall, however, the bank reported a profit of $1.91 per share, just two cents below the profit in the first quarter of fiscal 2012, when net income attributable to shareholders was $832 million.CIBC’s core retail and business banking division saw its net income rise to $611 million, up eight per cent from $567 million a year earlier. That was offset by a small dip at its wealth management division and a major decline in wholesale banking, primarily related to the Lehman settlement.“We’ve had a strong start to the year,” said president and chief executive Gerry McCaughey in a conference call.“We’re confident that our lower-risk, customer-focused strategy positions CIBC to deliver consistent, sustainable returns for our shareholders.”CIBC shares were down $1.09, or 1.3 per cent, to $82.79 near midday on the Toronto Stock Exchange.Overall, CIBC’s revenue was $3.18 billion, up marginally from $3.16 billion in the first quarter of 2012.CIBC also went against many analyst expectations by not raising its dividend above the current 94 cents per share. The other three banks that have reported first-quarter results so far — Bank of Montreal, Royal and TD — have all hiked their dividends and reported higher Q1 profit that beat estimates.McCaughey defended the bank’s decision to holding steady on the dividend when asked by an analyst on the earnings conference call.“I wouldn’t read too much into our not raising the dividend this quarter,” he said.“On the capital front, we’re also in the middle of a (stock) buyback program that’s going at an accelerated pace. As I said before, to the extent that you have a buyback, it does allow you to raise your dividend more rapidly and stay within your payout ratio.”He said the bank is still considering “the exact mix” of its buyback program, which would determine what happens to dividend increases in the coming quarters.Provisions for credit losses were reduced to $265 million from $338 million a year earlier and $328 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, ended Oct. 31.CIBCs wealth management division was down $10 million or 10 per cent from the same time in 2012 to $90 million. However, the comparable profit last year included a $37-million gain related to an investment. Excluding that, wealth management’s net income was up $25 million or 38 per cent from a year before.The wholesale banking division saw its net income fall by $42 million or 32 per cent from a year earlier to $91 million, mostly due to the settlement with the Lehman Bros. estate.Analysts had estimated that, on average, the bank would have adjusted earnings of $2.08 per share and revenue of $3.23 billion, according to consensus estimates compiled by Thomson Reuters.CIBC has more than 42,000 employees across its operations including retail and wholesale banking and financial services, serving more than 11 million customers. by The Canadian Press Posted Feb 28, 2013 6:14 am MDT CIBC Q1 profit drops to $798 million; quarter includes provision for settlement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more


“I am deeply troubled. As Secretary-General, it is my duty to prevent war and to pursue peace. It is also my responsibility to state that the current crisis has already gone too far,” Mr. Ban said at a news conference during his visit to Andorra.“Nuclear threats are not a game. Aggressive rhetoric and military posturing only result in counter-actions, and fuel fear and instability.”Mr. Ban called for dialogue and negotiations, underlining that this is “the only way to resolve the crisis,” and expressed his readiness to help all the parties involved to this end.In February, the DPRK conducted its third, long threatened nuclear test, a move that was in violation of Security Council sanctions and drew widespread condemnation, including from Mr. Ban.The test prompted the Security Council to tighten sanctions on the country’s trade and banking, as well as travel by targeted officials. The DPRK then reportedly said it was cancelling the 1953 Armistice Agreement that ended the Korean War.“Things must begin to calm down, as this situation, made worse by the lack of communication, could lead down a path that nobody should want to follow,” he said. “There is no need for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to be on a collision course with the international community. I am convinced that nobody intends to attack DPRK because of disagreements about its political system or foreign policy. However, I am afraid that others will respond firmly to any direct military provocation.” read more


“Research funders are making a strong statement that there will be no more excuses on why some clinical trials remain unreported long after they have completed,” said Marie-Paule Kieny, Assistant Director-General for Health Systems and Innovation at the UN World Health Organization (WHO).The concern is that unreported trials result in an “incomplete and potentially misleading” understanding of the risks and benefits of vaccines, drugs and medical devices, and could lead to the release of harmful products. The standards are based on a 2015 WHO published position on public disclosure, which defines timeframes within which the results should be reported. Today’s joint statement that future standards will be in line with that 2015 position, was signed by the Indian Council of Medical Research, the Norwegian Research Council, the UK Medical Research Council, Médecins Sans Frontières and Epicentre (its research arm), PATH, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), Institut Pasteur, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Wellcome Trust.According to a press release, the entities agreed to develop and implement policies within the next 12 months that require all trials they fund, co-fund, sponsor or support to be registered in a publicly-available registry. read more


first_imgA suite of high grade gold assets in South Korea, most of them historic underground or artisanal gold and silver workings, some of which extend over a large footprint, are to be acquired by Australian gold producer, Southern Gold Ltd. Significantly, the Adelaide-based miner’s strategic international expansion will see it emerge as one of the few foreign entities with existing and much sought after government sanctioned tenure over its new holdings as the country seeks to mobilise its resource development to lessen the impact of years of mineral imports.Among the newly acquired 17 gold project areas across 44 tenements are at least six high priority targets, four of which will be drilled over the next 18 months – the first of which will commence in just two weeks south of the capital, Seoul.This initial drilling at Kochang, an historic and extremely high grade gold and silver mine working in narrow veins, has won the support of the government-backed Korean Resources Corp (KORES).KORES will fund at least 70% of the Kochang campaign as it and Southern Gold believe the site has optimal potential to open up the old mine to fast-track development and medium term production.The acquired assets, valued at around A$2 million, are contained in offshore subsidiaries of unlisted public company, Asiatic Gold Ltd.Southern Gold Managing Director, Simon Mitchell: “There is substantial potential across the assets for extensions to quartz veins in some of the older mine workings as well as highly prospective greenfields epithermal gold targets – the source of potential new discoveries.“Importantly for us, we have retained in country, the technical team that in recent times has driven a modern era assessment and development of these gold plays.“These include internationally recognised consultant, Douglas Kirwin and Exploration Manager, Dr Chris Bowden.  Chris completed his PhD on the epithermal gold veins in South Korea and is the perfect person to lead the team over there.“The South Korean acquisition is part of a strategic expansion strategy to provide investors in Southern Gold with heightened exposure to a new and truly world-class gold exploration play. These assets are located in areas of exceptional geological prospectivity, backed by a first class exploration team and multiple, very promising drill targets. “The acquisition provides Southern Gold with the potential for additional high grade gold production sources in the medium term as well as the possibility of new greenfield discoveries in a jurisdiction that has seen very limited modern exploration. “We believe this to be the most significant package of fully granted tenure held by a foreign company in South Korea, a jurisdiction where tenure is difficult to acquire and therefore becomes a very valuable and strategic asset for Southern Gold.”Australia and South Korea share a free trade agreement.  The most prominent gold projects acquired, all to the south and southeast of Seoul, are as follows:Weolyu:  Historically a silver-gold-germanium mine, recent exploration has discovered classic high level low sulphidation epithermal veining in a district yet to see a single drill hole and with rock float sampling at surface generating up to 17.6g/t Au and 820g/t Ag.  Priority drill target.Gubong: Historically a significant orogenic gold mining district and Korea’s second largest producer, this project has the potential to open up underground workings and fast track development.  Has potential for large gold system and significant exploration target range.Hampyeong: Up to 21g/t Au in rock chip samples in classic epithermal quartz veins.  New Ah Cha vein discovery points to the potential for an epithermal gold system at depth.  Priority drill target.Kochang: Historically extremely high grade gold and silver in narrow veins were mined with old mine workings still in place.  Has potential to open up old mine to fast track development.  KORES supported drilling to commence in the next few weeks.Heungdeok: Extensive area of artisanal mining across several parallel quartz veins in a district that has seen no drilling.  Also potential for large tonnage Intrusive Related Gold mineralisation.Taechang: Historically mined very high grade gold deposit with old mine workings still in place and potentially accessible to fast track underground exploration and development.last_img read more

first_img Tom Holland’s ‘Uncharted’ Coming in 2020‘Minecraft Earth’ Is The Next ‘Pokemon Go’ Stay on target Halo‘s Master Chief is (finally?) heading to a Nintendo system. No, the Switch is not getting a port of a Halo game. Instead, the Xbox’s beloved mascot is coming to everyone’s favorite handheld/console hybrid by way of Minecraft. The “Halo mashup pack” will soon be available on Switch and every other edition of Minecraft (minus the PlayStation version, of course).Master Chief isn’t the only Xbox character making his way to Switch. Expect to see pixelated versions of characters from Fable, Gears of War, and Banjo Kazooie. The inclusion of Banjo characters is interesting given how the franchise originally started on the Nintendo 64. The Switch is Nintendo’s main console these days, but if you own Minecraft on Wii U, you’ll also have access to these characters when you download the new skin pack. Master Chief is simply too big for one single Nintendo console to hold.As EuroGamer points out, the Halo mashup pack has been available on Xbox for a number of years now. Microsoft’s systems (in this case the Xbox 360 and Xbox One) used to have the Minecraft: Xbox Edition, but this version was discontinued sometime ago. It was replaced by the current edition of Minecraft, which is available across many platforms. Interestingly enough, the now-defunct Minecraft: Xbox Edition recently got a new skin pack based on the Disney film, Moana. Because… why not?Master Chief’s Nintendo sojourn can be seen as the only way to play a “new” Halo game. Microsoft hasn’t said anything regarding when a new entry in their most well-known series will release. Given the lukewarm reception to Halo 5, it’s possible 343 Industries (the current developers of Halo) are taking extra time to ensure the next game is everything fans of the franchise want. Perhaps we’ll get some type of Halo announcement during this year’s E3. For now, Halo fans will simply have to make do with this low-res version of Master Chief to tide them over.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

first_img Samsung, LG, Motorola: How soon can we expect 5G phones? Share your voice Now playing: Watch this: Then you have the president’s recent executive order, where he barred US companies from buying foreign-made telecom equipment that would be considered a national security risk. Those definitions of who is considered a risk is something that the Commerce Department and Homeland Security in consultation with the FCC are working through.Are you aware of any network gear that’s been compromised in the US or anywhere in the world?Starks: I know that there are carriers who have this Huawei equipment in their infrastructure. And I have received national security briefings on the threats that are posed by having Chinese equipment in such networks. There have been reports that in Europe folks have identified software code that was in Chinese equipment that they considered to be risky. So that’s the general nature of some of the threats that we’ve seen right now.How do we go about getting this gear out of US networks?Starks: That’s part of what we’re thinking through. Remediation is the clearest way to do this. A rip and replace is what a number of people have suggested. Again, that gets back to step one: We have to figure out what is the proper scope, and what is the equipment at issue. Then we have to think about replacing it. Because of the nature of some of these small, rural carriers, we’re also going to have to make sure that we provide them the funding to do this properly. That’s really important.The main reason that rural carriers were using Huawei gear was because it was cheaper than equipment from other companies. Do you think Congress should help pay for this?Starks: Going back to 2012 and 2013, there has been some indication from the US government that we were growing increasingly concerned about having Huawei and some of these Chinese equipment makers in our communications infrastructure. But it wasn’t until the president’s executive order just a month or so ago that it became absolutely official that procuring and buying this equipment was going to be prohibited. So we certainly understand that some rural carriers made a business decision before this ban was in place.What I am focused on now is the fact that if this is a national security risk, and I believe it is, the most important thing is to make sure that we have a secure nation. If that means that the government has to be the one to take care of that, then I think that’s the way it should be.Do you have any idea how much this will cost?Starks: The answer is very much tied up in the scope of the problem. There has been bipartisan legislation proposed by Sen. [Roger] Wicker [a Republican from Mississippi] and co-sponsored by Sen. [Mark] Warner [a Democrat from Virginia] that proposes $700 million. I know, I’ve heard numbers that go as high as $1 billion. And it could be higher. It certainly seems like folks on Capitol Hill agree that there is going to be a need for some government funding here.Do you have support from your fellow FCC commissioners, including the three Republicans, for a government funded rip and replace effort?Starks: I won’t speak for them. I know that Sen. Wicker, who is a Republican, is the one who introduced the legislation that is proposing funding the remediation of some of this Chinese equipment. As for the Republican commissioners in the majority, national security risks are something that we all have been thinking through. Very recently, we unanimously voted on keeping China Mobile out of the US market. It had an application pending before the FCC to operate here and that was unanimously rejected by all of us because of a number of issues, including the national security risks.How much of the issue with Huawei is about trade? I know you say there are national security risks, but is keeping Huawei out of the US market at least partly about the US’ fears that China will overtake the US in terms of technology and economic power?Starks: This question gets into whether the administration’s overall trade negotiations with China are involved in the ban. I am focused on, the national security aspect of this with regard to our telecommunications networks. The trade negotiations are in the president’s lane; I’m really focused on the national security aspect. This isn’t just about preventing 5G equipment from getting into US carrier networks. There’s some 3G and 4G gear deployed too, right?Starks: That’s right. Having Huawei in our current network infrastructure means that we are exposed to the same type of risks that we’re talking about for our next-generation 5G networks.One thing I want to make clear is that we can’t just focus solely on making sure our networks are secure going forward, but that we make certain we don’t have any national security risks in our current networks when we know there is lots of Huawei gear already out there. The thing that I’m really focused on right now is coming up with solutions for dealing with Huawei and other risky equipment that’s already in our networks.How big a problem is this? How much Huawei gear is in US carrier networks?Starks: The first thing we need to do is understand the scope of the problem. That’s why I’ve invited a number of carriers, manufacturers, industry associations, academics and national security experts to come to the FCC on Thursday to be part of helping me think through this. We need to put our heads together on this “Find it. Fix it. Fund it.” idea.There are three distinct levels as I see it. The first is how many carriers are we talking about that have equipment that is risky in their networks. One association that has a number of rural carriers has told me that they know it’s predominantly small, rural carriers that are using this gear. They believe it’s about 25% of nearly 50 of its carrier members that have this type of equipment.We need to make sure we have a system where we have carriers raise their hand and self-identify that they have this equipment in their infrastructure. That ties very much into making sure that the “funded” part is very clearly defined. Cellular gearCellular network gear has become a fixture of the modern landscape. Getty Images The second thing is that we need to identify what equipment is particularly risky. This is something we need to work through with national security folks and with academics in the field. Is it the Huawei software and code? Or is it specific equipment we need to identify as something that should be prohibited? Does it go to the core of the network, like routers and servers? Or does it extend to antennas and radios that go to the edge part of the network? We need to figure out which equipment has issues. Then that leads to the last part, which is to what extent any given carrier has this equipment in their network infrastructure. You mentioned this is primarily an issue for small rural carriers. The four largest nationwide carriers — AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon — don’t have Huawei equipment in their networks. So how much of a threat is this really? Does this mean that our national communications network is only as safe as its weakest link?Starks: We live in an interconnected world. Our communications flow from one carrier to another. This is great for ensuring that our communications happen fast and at a low cost. But I deeply believe that if we have a carrier with security problems, then we all have a security problem.At the FCC we’re currently considering whether to offer Universal Service Fund support to companies that could have insecure telecommunications equipment. You see that Congress has also spoken up on this issue with the National Defense Authorization Act, where Congress has prohibited government procurement of telecommunications equipment from certain Chinese companies. The NDAA actually names Huawei and ZTE. There have been reports that in Europe folks have identified software code that was in Chinese equipment that they considered to be risky. FCC Commissioner Geoffrey Starks Next week, Starks will convene a workshop at the agency’s headquarters in Washington to bring together industry executives, national security experts and academics to think through how the US can rip out and replace risky equipment in an effort he calls “Find it. Fix it. Fund it.”Starks, a Democrat who was confirmed by the Senate in January, has made network security his top issue at the FCC. As a lawyer in the Office of the Deputy Attorney General at the Department of Justice, under Barack Obama appointee Eric Holder, he provided advice on domestic and international law enforcement issues, including civil, criminal and national security matters.CNET talked to Starks by phone about his efforts. Below is an edited excerpt of the conversation.Q: What are the security threats from having Huawei equipment in US telecommunications networks?Starks: When I was at the Department of Justice, I had some national security issues in my portfolio, so I’ve had national security briefings in the past. Now, in my capacity as a commissioner, I deeply believe that network security is national security. The FCC needs to step into its role to make sure that we’re securing our communication networks, which underpin our utilities, transportation, financial and health care systems. Specific risks of having Huawei gear in our networks include spying or surveillance that could impact our networks and their abilities to operate. The second big risk national security experts talk about is the ability for foreign governments to disrupt our communications networks, especially during a national emergency. Mobile Politics FCC Commissioner Geoffrey Starks testifying before a House of Representatives committee last month. Tom Williams/Getty Images Federal Communications Commissioner Geoffrey Starks is leading an effort to scrub US telecommunications networks of gear from companies such as Huawei that’re thought of as a threat to the country’s security. With US operators racing toward deploying gear to build the next generation of wireless, known as 5G, the Commerce Department has blacklisted Huawei and several other companies because of national security concerns.The main issue with Huawei is its cozy relationship with the Chinese government. National security officials fear that its equipment could be used to spy on other countries and companies. In May, President Donald Trump issued an executive order effectively banning new Huawei gear from US communications networks.Huawei has long denied its gear can be used to spy or to compromise US security.The FCC is already considering prohibiting carriers with such gear from accessing broadband subsidies, but Starks says the government should go one step further to weed out equipment from vendors like Huawei that the US government says poses significant risks. One big risk national security experts talk about is the ability for foreign governments to disrupt our communications networks, especially during a national emergency.

first_imgSince then, services had become more comprehensive, giving fans of movies and TV shows more options to access and collect their titles. Aylsworth acknowledged that there has also been a move toward subscription services, but said ownership of movie and TV show collections would continue to play a significant role for the industry going forward. “It’s very clear to us that it is on very sound footing,” she said.Ultraviolet launched in 2011 with support from all of the major Hollywood studios except Disney. The service also had buy-in from Lionsgate and other independent studios, and struck partnerships with online retailers, including Walmart’s Vudu service, FandangoNow, and some of the online services run by studios like Sony Pictures.Consumers could use Ultraviolet to access digital titles purchased from one retailer through the apps of other participating retailers, and codes included with DVDs and Blu-Rays made it possible to unlock digital copies in addition to physical media bought in stores. Some retailers also offered consumers a chance to upconvert their existing DVD collection to HD digital media for a fee.Ultraviolet currently has more than 30 million users, who collectively store more than 300 million movies and TV shows in their cloud libraries.However, Disney’s decision to instead develop its own cloud locker service, dubbed Disney Movies Anywhere, long represented a major roadblock for Ultraviolet. Some major digital retailers, including iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play, never joined Ultraviolet because of the market’s fragmentation.When Disney relaunched its cloud locker service as Movies Anywhere in late 2017, opening it up to other industry players, some of the studios previously associated with Ultraviolet decided to jump ship. Last year, 20th Century Fox, Universal Pictures, and Lionsgate stopped distributing their new releases as Ultraviolet titles. Movies Anywhere is now being supported by most major studios and retailers. Popular on Variety Ultraviolet, a cloud movie locker once hailed as Hollywood’s best bet to get consumers hooked on digital movies, is shuttering. The Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE), the industry consortium that has been tasked with running Ultraviolet, will shut down the service on July 31.DECE will start to inform its users of the wind-down this Thursday, and is advising users to not delete their Ultraviolet movie libraries. Users should instead make sure that their libraries are connected to the service of at least one retailer, which they can then use to access their movies and TV shows going forward, according to an FAQ document that is slated to be published on Ultraviolet’s website on Thursday morning.DECE president Wendy Aylsworth told Variety in an exclusive interview this week that the decision to discontinue Ultraviolet was a response to the evolution of the market for online entertainment. “The marketplace for collecting entertainment content was very small when Ultraviolet started,” she said. “It was siloed into walled gardens at the time.” Still, Aylsworth didn’t want the end of Ultraviolet to be painted as a response to Movies Anywhere’s growing momentum. The decision to end the service “doesn’t really have anything to do with Movies Anywhere,” she said. Aylsworth added that the future of the DECE is yet to be decided.Vudu, the biggest retailer associated with Ultraviolet, was quick to assure its customers that they didn’t have to fear losing their movie collections when the cloud locker service closes.“Customers who use Vudu to watch, rent, or buy movies and TV shows will not be impacted by the discontinuation of the Ultraviolet platform,” said Vudu vice president Scott Blanksteen. “These customers will continue to be able to enjoy Vudu content as they have been and continue to access any and all movies and TV shows they have saved in their Vudu library, even after the shutdown of the Ultraviolet service.”Blanksteen added that customers of other video platforms could always link their Ultraviolet accounts to Vudu to access their collections through the retailer’s apps going forward. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes. This is a quick walk-around video showing the Siemens Healthineers Multix Impact digital radiography (DR) room X-ray system at RSNA 2018. The system offers an intuitive operating system to help improve productivity. The in-room touch user interface on the tube allows the technologist to remain at the patient’s side. And when unable to be at the patient’s side, the technologist is able to monitor and optimize positioning from the control room via the system’s patient positioning camera, potentially reducing repeat imaging and unnecessary patient dose. Lights at the top of the X-ray system automatically indicate it the patient anatomy is aligned properly with the exam type the technologist chose for optimal imaging to reduce the need for retakes. The Multix Impact also offers an intuitive user interface and graphical organ program selection. The positioning guide display on both the in-room touch user interface and the workstation supports precise, consistent patient positioning. Advanced motorization and tracking reduce the physical exertion of technologists and help prevent repetitive stress injuries.The FDA cleared the system In January 2019.  Radiation Oncology | May 13, 2019 Patient-first Innovations from Accuray at ASTRO 2018 At ASTRO 2018, Accuray showcased new patient-first innovations, including motion synchronization on Radixact, and the new CK VoLO, a fast optimizer on the CyberKnife system.
