Hyderabad: Mainstream media in the country is facing challenges as both governments in power and the liberals are trying to corner it and discredit it, felt, Shekhar Gupta, president of the Editors Guild of India. Unperturbed by the challenges, the need of the hour is going back to classical and old-fashioned journalism that focussed on facts and leg work at the ground.

He said tougher times for the media are not confined to India alone, but seen across the world with leaders like Donald Trump, Vladmir Putin, Shinzo Abe, Benjamin Netanyahu etc. employing different tactics to pressurise and target the mainstream media. Also Read – Ramagundam: Focus on company’s growth, community development Advertise With Us Also, to cater to their loyalists and their bases, people in power started to have their own news channels and publications, considering the media industry requires an investment which is very less by their standards. “US Donald Trump has Fox News to cover his governance and politics. Likewise, a Republic TV or Times Now stick to a line and telecast programmes that appeal to select viewers,” Shekar Gupta, said. Advertise With Us He said the programmes being aired in evening prime slots on news channels (8 pm to 10 pm) are not news but entertainment-related where a viewer can see the panellist and easily guess what line and stand, he takes on any particular subject. Coming to various States in the country, it’s the Chief Ministers who are trying various methods to control the media and coverage in the form of government advertisement revenue, offering plum posts of government advisor to former and senior journalists etc. And those who go against the government are targeted by stopping advertisements or foisting of police cases etc, he said. As a journalist, it is very important that our wishes and voting preferences do not come in way of factual reporting and coverage. “Each of us may have our own opinion. We might have voted for a particular party. But it should not come in the way of our duty which is essentially sticking to facts.” Also, there are times when people in power try to pressurise you and one should have a strong spine and thick skin not to feel deterred by such actions, he added. Shekhar Gupta wanted present journalists to make effective use of digital technology and social media to have a large base of followers and audience because they can retain their own identity even if he or she was asked to quit the present job. However, he wanted scribes to exercise caution and post content that is factual news and not indulge in gossips, not to show an inclination towards some and discriminating others etc. Senior journalist K Ramachandramurthy, Press Club president Vijay Kumar Reddy, General Secretary Rajamouli Chari, Treasurer Suraj V Bharadwaj, Joint Secretary Chilukuri Hari Prasad, Executive Committee member Rajinikanth Veeragoni, N Uma Devi among others took part.

As automakers race to add the latest technologies to vehicles, a new study has found that most drivers aren’t using these high-tech features in the first place.According to J.D. Power’s Driver Interactive Vehicle Experience (DrIVE) Report, released Tuesday, 1 out of every 5 new vehicle owners has never used half of the 33 technology features measured by the annual survey.”The first 30 days are critical,” said Kristin Kolodge, executive director of driver interaction at J.D. Power. “That first-time experience with the technology is the make-it or break-it stage.”There are a few reasons why these technologies have not been widely adopted, Kolodge said. In many cases, new vehicle owners said they did not find certain features useful, or indicated the technology came as part of package of options they didn’t want.In other cases, the use of new technologies has been limited because dealers do not fully explain how to operate certain features when owners buy a new car or truck.”Automakers also need to explain the technology to dealership staff and train them on how to demonstrate it to owners,” Kolodge said.The report serves as additional evidence that automakers and suppliers are still searching for the right menu of new technology to offer car and truck buyers.Finding the right balance is crucial, as these features are a primary reason why the average transaction price (what’s paid at dealerships) for new vehicles has steadily climbed in recent years. In July, that number sat at $31,691, according to TrueCar. That compares to $29,882 in July 2011.Blind spot warning and detection and fuel economy indicators topped the list as the most-desired technologies that drivers want on their next vehicle, according to the report.Top technologies wanted on next vehicleBlind spot warning and detection: 87 percentFuel economy indicator: 87 percentSeat lumbar adjustment: 86 percentPhone pairing system: 84 percentPark assist: 82 percentSource: J.D. PowerOn the flipside, the survey shows that car and truck buyers have become so accustomed to using their mobile phones for navigation and streaming music that they would rather stick with those devices than transition to in-car infotainment systems.”In many cases, owners simply prefer to use their smartphone or tablet because it meets their needs; they’re familiar with the device and it’s accurate,” Kolodge said.Top technologies not wanted on next vehicleRear seat entertainment: 58 percentMassaging seats: 47 percentIn-vehicle concierge: 44 percentAutomatic parking system: 39 percentAndroid Auto: 38 percentApple CarPlay: 37 percentSource: J.D. PowerIt’s important to note that although in-car infotainment systems such as Apple CarPlay or Google’s Android Auto may not rank high, the systems are still relatively new and only offered in a limited number of vehicles.The latest DrIVE report is based on the responses of more than 4,200 vehicle owners after 90 days of ownership. The survey was conducted between April and June of this year.
Ubuntu GNOME merged into mainline Ubuntu by Mike Turcotte-McCusker on April 26, 2017 in Linux – Last Update: April 25, 2017 – 13 commentsUbuntu has been using the Unity environment developed by Caonical Ltd. since the netbook edition of Ubuntu 10.10, initially released on June 9, 2010. However, it has been decided that the Unity environment would no longer be the standard environment used for the popular GNU/Linux distro.In a blog post by Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu and Canonical, he says, “We are wrapping up an excellent quarter and an excellent year for the company, with performance in many teams and products that we can be proud of. As we head into the new fiscal year, it’s appropriate to reassess each of our initiatives. I’m writing to let you know that we will end our investment in Unity8, the phone and convergence shell. We will shift our default Ubuntu desktop back to GNOME for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.”It has been the goal of Canonical and the Ubuntu teams to create “Convergence,” with multiple different avenues having been traversed such as Unity and Ubuntu for phones.Shuttleworth said, “I took the view that, if convergence was the future and we could deliver it as free software, that would be widely appreciated both in the free software community and in the technology industry, where there is substantial frustration with the existing, closed, alternatives available to manufacturers. I was wrong on both counts.”Shuttleworth went on to talk about how they are comitted to the Ubuntu distribution, and that he recognized the opinion of the community on their design and utilization of Unity on past releases.Shuttleworth said, “In the community, our efforts were seen fragmentation not innovation. And industry has not rallied to the possibility, instead taking a ‘better the devil you know’ approach to those form factors, or investing in home-grown platforms.”Ubuntu GNOME developer Jeremy Bicha posted on the Ubuntu GNOME website the release of Ubuntu GNOME 17.04, and discussed the future of the GNOME featured distribution, including the news that the project was being shut down and merged into the main Ubuntu releases in the coming release of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.In his post, Bicha says, “As announced last week by Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth, Ubuntu 18.04 LTS will include GNOME instead of Unity. Specifically, it will be GNOME (including gnome-shell) with minimal Ubuntu customization.”The developers of Ubuntu GNOME are also members of the Ubuntu Desktop team, and so they will still be actively working, and there at least appears to be no loss or changes to the teams.Ubuntu is probably the most famous GNU/Linux distribution, and for many years was also the most popular choice for home users. Ubuntu is also used frequently on many server environments, although falls behind in ranking on that front behind it’s ancestor; Debian.When Ubuntu made the switch from using GNOME 2.x to the Unity desktop it caused quite the stir amongst the community with many users opting to leave Ubuntu and move on to other distributions. While there have been some users who supported Unity, it was widely seen in poor light.What’s your take on this move? Let’s hear what you have to say in the comments below.SummaryArticle NameUbuntu GNOME merged into mainline UbuntuDescriptionMark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu and Canonical, announced that Ubuntu Linux will use GNOME instead of Unity from Ubuntu version 18 on.Author Mike TurcottePublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisement
The man, who was traveling along Avenue 115, agreed to pull over in a nearby convenience store parking lot, however, the moment the got off his motorcycle, he attempted to flee on foot. Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — A man who was texting while on his motorcycle has been arrested by police after they found he was carrying a gun. Police say that the man caught their attention while at a green light. The man was on a motorcycle texting on his cell phone, not realizing the red light had turned green. When they proceeded to question him, they found he was carrying a weapon. Police searched his person and found he was carrying a gun. The man claimed to be a retired lieutenant of the Mexican Army, a 42-year-old named Gerardo D.C. from Mexico City, but the gun they found tucked inside his belt was registered to someone else.

The data can help improve workflow efficiency, see areas where additional imaging systems are needed or which machines or technologists are using the highest radiation doses.With all areas of healthcare now migrating to electronic medical record (EMR) platforms, the data they contain can be mined to use increasingly sophisticated analytics software. This includes pulling information to improve department or hospital management, quality assurance to boost outcomes and efficiency, and even the ability to identify patients who are ideal referrals for new clinical programs such as low-dose lung computed tomography (CT) cancer screenings, or candidates for peripheral artery disease revascularization. Analytics software was one of the top trends seen at the 2016 meeting of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS). This article is an overview of analytics presentations from that conference. With most EMR implementations now complete, providers are shifting resources from the EMR implementation to analytics and population health, said Jonathan Niloff, M.D., vice president and CMO of McKesson’s connected care and analytics division. He said today’s analytical software is much more sophisticated than in the past, where all data points from the EMR and interconnected information technology (IT) systems can now be searched in one location. Basic analytics data has been available for years but required time-consuming, manual tabulation of data points. Dashboarding features to automatically track specific data have been around for several years to offer overview of key departmental statistics. Over the past year, there has been a wave of new and much more sophisticated analytics software packages released on the market. These are no longer tied to pulling data from one vendor’s IT system, but operate as a third-party software with the ability to pull data from numerous data sources, including not only the EMR but patient reporting systems, picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), cardiology information systems, ADT, medical coding and billing systems, inventory management and lab reports. These systems also offer data beyond traditional software systems, tapping into the raw data of diagnostic modalities and ancillary devices themselves, including CT, digital radiography (DR), angiography and automated contrast injectors. This data can be leveraged to identify trends in usage, contrast dose by procedure or protocol, and radiation doses used. As interoperability between data and imaging systems has improved, analytical software can now perform more complex data mining, such as reviews of imaging radiation dose levels by patient, by protocol or modality. Outliers in these reports can be clicked on to drill down data to see which machine that exam was performed on, the tech who performed the exam, or look at the specific patient’s EMR data to see if they are extremely obese or if there are other reasons that required a higher X-ray dose. If a particular machine or technologist is suspected of having quality issues, the newer analytics systems can pull historical data for a particular machine or technologist to see if there are other outlier exams, which may identify staff that need additional training or older equipment that needs to be replaced.New analytics software can pull data from operating room or cath lab procedures to track average procedure time and the costs of the procedure by CPT code, types of procedures, disease state, specific physicians or specific implantable devices. Business uses include better management of inventory, procedural room use, imaging utilization, staff performance, radiation dose management, monitoring factors for patient satisfaction and to help identify bottlenecks in patient discharge, door-to-balloon times, STAT radiology reads and what contributes to poor or improved patient outcomes. This data has been available for years at many facilities, but it is the new level of analytics software integration that now makes data mining possible for all these things on one screen using one program. Watch a video explaining how analytics can help improve workflows.Watch the VIDEO “The Role of Analytics in Value-Based Healthcare.”Watch the video “Data-Driven Decision-Making for Radiology Management,” from AHRA 2016. Population HealthBeyond departmental analytics, software can be leveraged to pull stats from across a healthcare system, or across a regional health information exchange. These data can help identify patient populations that are targets for new programs, such as low-dose lung CT screening for lung cancer, patients with diabetic foot ulcers or other symptoms who may benefit from a critical limb ischemia revascularization program, or to preemptively identify and screen patients at high risk for developing heart failure before developing acute symptoms, or CT cardiac calcium scoring screenings of patients who are not sure if they should go on statin therapy.

They illustrate the new breed of analytics software being released by numerous vendors today, both large and small. Both vendors created a common, vendor-neutral analytics platform that can operate on both their information systems and those of other vendors. These platforms can be sold separately from other GE or Siemens products as a third-party software system. Both systems sit on top of the EMR, ADT, PACS, cardiovascular information system (CVIS) and other hospital and patient reporting systems. With a big focus now on enterprise IT systems, both vendors say their platforms act as an integration engine for all the -ologies across the healthcare enterprise. From a cardiology prospective, GE’s system, part of the new GE Cloud product launched at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2015 annual meeting, can pull up inventory management system data and link disposables and implantable device usage to specific costs, procedures, procedure types, specific physicians, drugs used, expenditures to date and show where specific items are located in departments. The software can also pull data by physician, procedure type, procedure stats based on patients risk scores, length of stay or disease states. Specific outlier patients can easily be identified and data specific to these cases pulled for review. From a radiology prospective, Siemens Teamplay, launched in 2015, is another example of the simplification of data analytics using a single-point-of-access software. It can be set for any parameters to alert users if that threshold has been reached or exceeded. Siemens said this is particularly useful in X-ray radiation dose monitoring. The software allows side-by-side comparison of a facility’s CT scanner doses with other scanners at the same hospital or healthcare system, comparisons with American College of Radiology (ACR) reference levels or from other Teamplay users. Data Analytics Implementation Can Be Adversarial Many healthcare system IT departments found they ran into an “us vs. them” mentality when they first attempted to share analytics with clinical staff. There was a perception that the data was going to be used to micromanage departments or discipline staff. There were also questions as to how IT staff were going to pull anything meaningful that could improve clinical workflows or outcomes. “Credibility is the biggest barrier for us, and that is why transparency is so important,” said Thomas Van Gilder, M.D., JD, MPH, CMO and vice president of informatics and analytics, Transcend Insights, Cambell, Calif. “You need to show this data is specific to patients — not C-suite business analytics. You can connect specific data points to specific patients — that is what will show clinicians how data can help with clinical collaboration to aid care and improve quality. This can also help reduce the ‘us vs. them’ approach to data from payors. You need to work with them on user engagement and make sure you learn what they need, not just try to sell something you developed.” “You have meetings to make changes and more meetings and changes, that is part of the process. You are designing a new product and it does not matter how I think it should work, it needs to meet the needs of the clinicians using it,” said Thomas Carlough, Pharm.D., manager of analytics for pharmacy and quality, Atlantic Health Systems, Morristown, N.J. IT staff tasked with helping clinicians improve the quality of their work also need to focus on data that is relevant to their audience.“As a clinician, I need to know my audience when presenting analytics data,” said James Whitfill, M.D., CMO, Scottsdale Health Partners, Phoenix, Ariz. “When I present to orthopedic surgeons about pressure ulcer rates, they don’t care. They want to know about days to discharge or incision infection rates that pertain to their procedures.”Danyal Ibrahim, M.D., MPH, MHCDS, chief data and analytics officer, St. Francis Hospital, Hartford, Conn., said there are several acceptance stages to data, including denial, anger, the acceptance and then transformation via improvements to change the data. He explained you need to share data freely and show how it was derived. Data is not valid unless the clinicians responsible for it sign off on it to ensure it is correct, he explained. Another tip is including names of clinicians on data, as this makes it more usable and hits closer to home than anonymous statistics. “If doctors and staff are given easy access to the data, they will view it and work to improve,” said analytics company Health Level CEO Parag Paranjpe. “We found this works better than having someone else monitor the data with the threat of a stick if they do not improve.”Paranjpe said the ability to quickly review data often reveals issues that the clinicians did not realize were present. However, the information needs to be simple and quick to access and it helps if it is in a graphical format that quickly shows where there are problems. Leveraging Analytics to Improve CareCoordination of care has become increasingly important at many hospitals. Whitfill said his hospital analyzed records from 10,000 of its patients and found mixed results and areas where they need to improve. However, the analytics also showed the coordination efforts added up to a significant financial savings, based on their own data and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) data on those same patients. St. Francis Hospital implemented a heart failure registry of its patients to track their analytics in an effort to cut its readmission rate. Ibrahim explained an example of the system: He said they were to see 20 patients who had recent heart failure readmissions and they looked at who made up the care team for these patients. They also looked for data on these patients to see if they had home healthcare, or if they were sent to a nursing home to see if these might have been factors. Also, were discharge instructions clear or were they followed. If all of the readmission patients were sent to the same nursing home, or if there were missing drug orders at discharge, that can help identify that maybe the post-acute care was the issue, Ibrahim explained. “In many ways, the cardiologist becomes the heart failure patient’s primary care physician, so we developed a report to look at vitals to help them monitor these patients,” he said. This includes in-patient and out-patient records for labs, ejection fractions, weight records, etc. He said these basic vitals can help track a patient’s condition and potentially alert the cardiologist to a worsening condition so they can intervene early and avoid a readmission. The analytics also help discover a disconnect between medical coders and the physicians, so they now have staff assigned to coordinate better to ensure the medical coding is correct. Sometimes it is helpful to think outside the box with analytics to find new information that was not previously available to improve care. One example of this was found at Atlantic Health Systems, when clinicians found they could track hospital meals consumed for diabetic patients so they had a better understanding of these patients’ diet, Carlough said. He said another way analytics helped improve diabetic care was when they found one outlier patient who had consistently poor outcomes. When it was brought to the attention of the nursing staff, they explained that patient insisted on injecting the insulin themselves, but the data showed the patient was not administering it properly. Watch the VIDEO “Minneapolis Heart Institute Saves With Analytics Software.” 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.

Barely a month after Costa Rica concluded a massive airlift of Cuban migrants stranded in the country, regional leaders gathered in San José on Tuesday to address persistent problems on the immigration front, including the continued arrival of Cubans and migrants from Africa and Asia.Foreign Minister Manuel González said Tuesday that the uptick in undocumented migrants crossing Central America could pose a security risk to the United States.“We have not approached this from a security perspective because we do not believe these people represent a threat to our national security. That’s why we’ve approached this from a human rights angle,” González said, “but we can’t be sure what these people have in their minds or what is their true intention, especially when it comes to extra-continental migrants trying to reach the United States.”González said Costa Rica could not confirm the identities of all the migrants moving through the country and had expressed concern over the security threat this could present.“It could be that they come here with a bag of food and clothes and tomorrow with a bag of something else,” he said.Tuesday’s meeting was called by Costa Rica last week after several recent detentions of groups of migrants from across Africa. Meanwhile, roughly 2,000 Cuban migrants have accumulated in shelters on the Panamanian side of the border since Costa Rica stopped receiving them. The Costa Rican government announced an increased police presence in the southern part of the country to help address undocumented migration in March.Immigration officials and vice foreign ministers from Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, and Ecuador attended the meeting. Chairs sat empty during the meeting’s inaugural address in front of spots reserved for representatives from Cuba and Nicaragua. Representatives from the United Nations, the U.S. Embassy in San José and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security also attended the meeting.The pathway northCosta Rica and other Central American countries have seen increasing flows of undocumented migrants from around the world since 2012. The phenomenon reached its apex here in November 2015 when thousands of Cuban migrants were stranded in Costa Rica for four months after Nicaragua refused to let them pass through on their way to the United States.Costa Rica granted more than 7,800 Cubans temporary legal status and housed them in dozens of shelters across the country until the last Cuban migrants left via an airlift to Mexico in March.The Foreign Minister said illegal immigration requires “structural solutions,” including a change in U.S. immigration policy to disincentivize Cuban immigration. González and President Solís have both said they believe the terms of the Cuban Adjustment Act “unjustly” punish countries like Costa Rica that are left to manage the flows of migrants.Recommended: Costa Rica serves as a corridor for Asians, Africans migrating to the US González said extra-continental migration represented a relatively small but more “serious” problem than Cuban migration. The foreign minister noted that a bevy of factors complicate Costa Rica’s ability to identify migrants from Africa, South Asia and elsewhere, ranging from a lack of official identification and local diplomatic presence by the countries of origin, to the migrants’ inability to speak Spanish and, in some cases, to write their names.González called for a coordinated, holistic approach to irregular migration in the region that respects the human rights of the migrants and delivers a firm response to human smugglers and traffickers.“We don’t have all the solutions in our hands.
