HBC minority shareholder calls for special meeting to replace board of directors

first_imgTORONTO – A U.S. investment firm is calling for the removal of the current board of directors at Hudson’s Bay Co. (TSX:HBC), and taking particular aim at executive chairman Richard Baker because he “continues to call the shots.”Hudson’s Bay management has been under pressure for months from Land & Buildings Investment Management, which argues HBC’s stock price is far below the underlying value of its real estate holdings.Land & Buildings said it estimates HBC’s real estate is worth $35 per share while its share price was worth $11.96 at the end of last week when HBC said chief executive Gerald Storch would be leaving Nov. 1. HBC closed Monday at $11.75, down nearly two per cent from Friday.Jonathan Litt, who is chief investment officer and founder of Land & Buildings, said Monday in the statement that HBC’s problems won’t be resolved by the departure of Storch, a former Toys R Us chief executive who joined Toronto-based HBC in January 2015.HBC didn’t respond to requests for comment on the statement by Land & Buildings.Since Storch’s arrival, with Baker as executive chairman of the HBC board, the company has worked to expand its sales through digital channels, spread its Saks Fifth Avenue brand into Canada, and expand the Hudson’s Bay brand into Europe.But in June, HBC announced a $221 million loss in the first quarter and said it would eliminate 2,000 jobs in response to a challenging retail sector. Its second quarter included a $201 million net loss that Storch described as “very disappointing.”Litt’s statement said that the departure of Storch and other senior executives may be a seen as a reason for investors to give the company “more time to right the ship — while choosing to ignore the fact that the true decision makers and those at the board level who have been complicit in the decision making remain in power.”“In reality, executive chairman Richard Baker, who will be taking on the role of interim CEO, continues to call the shots.”Litt also repeated his position that HBC is really a real estate company, not a retailer, that has failed to outline a plan to unlock the “substantial real estate value trapped in the company.”Land & Buildings said it will call for a special meeting of HBC shareholders to consider a full slate of proposals, including a new board of directors.Under the Canada Business Corporations Act, shareholders with five per cent of a federally regulated public company’s stock are entitled to call for a special meeting.According to the most current information, Land & Buildings has more than four per cent of HBC’s outstanding stock. An offshore company controlled by Baker and his family owns about 17.2 per cent of HBC’s equity.last_img read more

Tim Howard Lost But He Just Had the Best Match of the

After losing 2-1 to Belgium on Tuesday, the U.S. men’s national team will be left to contemplate its future; after years of steady improvement, there are hints U.S. men’s soccer has hit a plateau. But one American left the tournament with a strong argument for his international quality: Goalkeeper Tim Howard.Howard was FIFA’s Man of the Match despite conceding Belgium’s two goals — both in extra time. The award is deserved. In fact, Howard’s game probably was the best by a goalkeeper in the World Cup to date.So far in the tournament, there have been three saves for every goal conceded (excluding penalties and own goals). If we account for shots in the same way that the National Hockey League does — a shot must result in either a goal or a save by the goalie, while shots stopped by another defensive player are considered “blocked shots” instead — this implies that every shot has a 25 percent chance of scoring. (In practice, soccer statisticians usually consider blocked shots to be shots on target as well, but we’ll go with the NHL’s definition as it better isolates goalkeeper performance.)Howard faced 18 shots from Belgium by this definition. If 25 percent of shots score on average, that implies Belgium would typically score 4.5 goals on this shooting volume. Instead, Howard conceded two goals. That means he saved a net of 2.5 goals for the United States.That +2.5 score — which we’ll call Howard’s “net goals saved” — was the best single-game performance in Brazil so far. The second-best belongs to Ecuador’s Alexander Dominguez, who made nine saves and allowed no goals against France for +2.25 net goals saved. That’s pretty good but slightly behind Howard’s total; Howard’s seven extra saves slightly outweighed the two goals he let in.The worst single-game performance belongs to Jung Sung-ryong of South Korea, who allowed four goals and made just one save in a poor performance against Algeria — a net goals saved score of -2.75. Spain’s Iker Casillas was nearly as bad in conceding five goals against the Netherlands, but he at least made five saves to go with them.Howard has not quite had the best overall tournament, however, because his net goals saved was exactly average (+0.00) entering the Belgian match. Instead, that honor goes to Colombia’s David Ospina, who has made 18 saves and allowed just two goals in four games so far, for a net goals saved of +3.00. read more

Frodo (Elijah Wood), Gollum (Andy Serkis), and Sam (Sean Astin) in The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King Overall, more than a fifth (22 per cent) said readers should always finish a book they have started.Around one in six (15 per cent) said that they would give up if they were struggling with a book after one to three weeks, with 11 per cent saying they would stop reading after four to six days, 13 per cent after two to three days and 6 per cent would stop up to a day after. Every dedicated reader will know that sinking feeling of battling through a book they are not enjoying just to get to the bitter end.But reader’s guilt should be officially at an end, according to The Reading Agency, as it advises simply putting down any novel which does not bring you pleasure.A poll, commissioned by the agency, found more than a fifth of British readers refused to give up on a book, no matter how much they are struggling, while others will wait weeks, or even months, before conceding defeat.It also indicated that the majority of Britons will avoid reading material that they believe will make them sad, with a considerable proportion saying they see reading as a form of escape and want to be transported to a happy place.The Reading Agency, which commissioned the survey to mark World Book Night on Monday April 23, suggested that anyone who finds themselves facing “book block” should not force themselves to continue with the book in question.The great unfinished: top fiveFifty Shades Of Grey by EL JamesThe Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring by JRR TolkienHarry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix by JK RowlingGreat Expectations by Charles DickensEmily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights.The poll, of 2,000 people, suggests that readers are more likely to have difficulty with modern-day novels.

Its Easy as Raspberry Pi to Create Your Own Electric Skateboard

first_img Lyra Is a Handheld Gaming System Powered by a Raspberry PiRaspberry Pi Used to Steal 500 MB of NASA Data Matthew Timmons-Brown, a 17-year-old student from Cambridge, has shown off what you can make when you have a lot of ingenuity, a little coding knowledge, and a Raspberry Pi Zero microcomputer. Matthew modified his skateboard, using the Raspberry Pi Zero as an input controller, to be driven with a Wii controller.The Raspberry Pi Zero was designed to stimulate this kind of out-of-the-box thinking by making a fully functional computing device available for under $30.00. The Raspberry Pi Foundation formed to develop the Raspberry Pi microcomputer to promote enthusiasm for computer science in developing countries and schools. Since the initial Raspberry Pi was offered over seven million, have been sold, making the credit-card sized computer more successful than some much more powerful computing devices.Although the product was initially aimed primarily at school-age children, enterprising tech enthusiasts have used the Raspberry Pi platform to hack together all sorts of incredible projects. A $20.00 version of the Alexa voice assistant, creating a table/arcade cabinet, making a Game Boy out of a Burger King toy, and turning a Game Boy into an emulation powerhouse, are all recent projects that have come out of hobbyist’s love of the tiny computer.Matthew’s modified skateboard can reach speeds of up to 18 mph and has a range of 6 miles. Although it would be a sure hit, after all, hoverboards were a thing; Matthew doesn’t plan on marketing it to the public. Stay on targetlast_img read more

Lexmark Healthcare Receives FDA Clearance for NilRead Enterprise Viewer

first_img News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more July 10, 2015 – Lexmark  announced that it has received 510(k) Class II clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Lexmark NilRead, a Web-based, zero-footprint enterprise diagnostic viewer. The NilRead viewer is available in multiple configurations – core, clinical and interpretation – covering different workflows, ranging from the distribution of imaging studies and reports within the enterprise to full primary interpretation workflows in decoupled enterprise image management implementations.Lexmark acquired Toronto-based Claron Technology Inc., including its NilRead line of medical image viewing, distribution, sharing and collaboration products, in January 2015. NilRead is part of Lexmark’s Healthcare Content Management (HCM) suite of solutions designed to enhance a clinician’s ability to make informed decisions by providing a comprehensive view of all relevant patient information in context of the patient. Lexmark HCM provides greater interoperability of patient content as healthcare delivery organizations move to an enterprise approach to managing medical images and other healthcare content that typically exists outside the electronic medical record (EMR) and other core applications.The 510(k) Class II clearance by the FDA means healthcare organizations in the U.S. are now able to use Lexmark NilRead to perform diagnostic review and interpretation of a wide variety of medical imaging studies, including mammography and digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) studies. The zero-footprint design of NilRead enables these large files to be delivered throughout a healthcare enterprise to local clinician workstations without download wait times. This is significant in a mammography screening environment where the daily volume of imaging studies reviewed is high.Each Lexmark NilRead configuration provides physicians with secure, interactive processing, viewing, and sharing of 2-D, MPR, 3-D, and fusion radiology exams. It provides interactive image processing and visualization tools and rule-based exam viewing to support physician preference and multi-monitor display configuration. NilRead can be easily integrated with any DICOM or HL7 network, connected with a vendor neutral archive (VNA) and invoked from a radiology information system (RIS) or workflow/reporting solution. NilRead can also query-retrieve remote DICOM and Web DICOM nodes, XDS repositories and other medical archives.As healthcare organizations move to an enterprise approach for managing medical images and other healthcare content, Lexmark NilRead functions as the enterprise viewing solution that gives clinicians universal access to all patient imaging through the EMR, electronic health record (EHR) or health information exchange (HIE). NilRead also supports dedicated interpretation workflows for radiology and other specific departments. With NilRead, referring physicians and diagnosticians are able to work together more effectively to treat patients without the constraints of service line silos. Clinicians are able to quickly and efficiently access and interact with images and reports for all patient images in a single view across the enterprise.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | Enterprise Imaging | July 08, 2019 VIDEO: Building the Right Team for Enterprise Imaging Success — Part 1 ITN Associate Editor Jeff Zagoudis speaks with Don Dennison read more News | Remote Viewing Systems | July 16, 2019 Anatomage Releases Anatomage Cloud Platform Anatomage Inc. released an update to the Anatomage Cloud platform that allows medical and dental professionals to… read more News | PACS | July 02, 2019 Laurel Bridge and 3M M*Modal Partner to Improve DICOM Structured Reporting July 2, 2019 — Laurel Bridge Software announced an expanded relationship with 3M M*Modal, a provider of clinical docu read more Technology | Cybersecurity | August 07, 2019 ScImage Introduces PICOM ModalityGuard for Cybersecurity ScImage Inc. is bridging the gap between security and functionality with the introduction of the PICOM ModalityGuard…. read more Videos | Enterprise Imaging | July 09, 2019 VIDEO: Building the Right Team for Enterprise Imaging Success — Part 2 ITN Associate Editor Jeff Zagoudis speaks with Don Dennison read more Technology | Enterprise Imaging | July 05, 2019 Hyland Healthcare Adds ImageNext Imaging Workflow Optimizer to Enterprise Imaging Suite Hyland Healthcare is launching ImageNext, a vendor-neutral imaging workflow optimizer that combines intelligent imaging… read more News | PACS | August 08, 2019 NetDirector Launches Cloud-based PDF to DICOM Conversion Service NetDirector, a cloud-based data exchange and integration platform, has diversified their radiology automation options… read more Related Content News | Enterprise Imaging | July 29, 2019 Philips Announces 10-year Enterprise Informatics Agreement With Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire de Nancy Philips and Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire (CHRU) de Nancy, a leading academic hospital in the Grand Est… read more Technology | Information Technology | July 10, 2015 Lexmark Healthcare Receives FDA Clearance for NilRead Enterprise Viewer Clearance includes the entire NilRead product family and covers a wide variety of medical imaging studies, including mammography and digital breast tomosynthesis Video Player is loading.Building the Right Team for Enterprise Imaging Success – Part 1Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 8:44Loaded: 1.86%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -8:44 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

AI beats Chinese doctors in a tumor diagnosis competition

first_imgAI has trumped humans yet again – this time in diagnosing tumor accurately and quickly. The BioMind AI system, designed especially for neuroimaging recognition, has managed to beat a team of 15 top Chinese doctors by a margin of two to one. When diagnosing tumors of the brain in the 225 test cases, BioMind managed to complete the task in just 15 minutes, as opposed to the doctors who took 30 minutes to complete the same task. BioMind correctly detected a tumor with a staggering accuracy of 87%, as compared to the doctors who managed only 66%. What is BioMind? BioMind is an artificially intelligent system developed at the Artificial Intelligence Research Centre for Neurological Disorders at the Beijing Tiantan Hospital, in collaboration with the Capital Medical University. For training the system, it was fed thousands of images of different nervous system-related diseases, especially related to the brain, that the hospital had archived for over 10 years. Such a large data set allowed the AI to diagnose the common and not-so-common neurological diseases with a staggering accuracy of approximately 90% in comparison to a senior doctor at the hospital. AI not something to be afraid of, says hospital vice president Wang Yongjun, the executive vice president of the Tiantan Hospital which conducted this competition, expressed no concerns over this comprehensive victory of the AI over humans. He said the contest was not intended to pit humans against AI, but to help the doctors interact better with the technology. One of the doctors who lost against BioMind, Dr. Lin Yi, said she welcomes Artificial Intelligence as a friend and thinks it will reduce the doctors’ workload. Not just that, it will also push them to keep learning and improve their skills. The tumor diagnosis competition demonstrated a well-trained AI’s capability to outperform humans yet again. Only recently, a team of AI algorithms had beaten the world’s best human Dota 2 players in the multiplayer mode, proving they are capable of working in teams. The recent events only fuel further the debate of whether AI would replace human effort, or would augment human expertise to accomplish the tasks more efficiently.

OHare airport workers vote to strike ahead of the Thanksgiving

first_img Posted by Tags: Chicago, Travel Alert CHICAGO — Hundreds of O’Hare International Airport workers have voted to go on strike ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.Service Employees International Union Local 1 officials said Thursday that about 500 workers have committed to strike. Union spokeswoman Izabela Miltko-Ivkovich said the strike “will definitely take place in the coming days,” though she didn’t specify which day it will start.The workers involved have been trying to organize with the union’s help. They work mainly for private contractors at the airport.“They don’t expect to shut the airport down,” SEIU Local 1 President Tom Balanoff said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. “That’s not what they’re trying to do. Oh, there will be disruption.”Balanoff said a walk out could slow but not shut down airport operations. He said what workers are trying to do “is get the powers that be to hear their voice.”The workers who plan to strike include baggage handlers, cabin cleaners, janitors and wheelchair attendants. They are seeking a $15 per hour wage.More news:  Canada raises travel warning amid escalating protests in Hong KongIt wasn’t immediately clear how such a strike would affect operations at O’Hare, which is one of the nation’s busiest airports.The Chicago Department of Aviation said in a statement that it doesn’t anticipate any disruption in service.Robert Mann, an airline industry analyst and former airline executive, said much depends on what types of jobs are affected, whether airlines or the private contractors can assign other employees to fill in and on how many workers will be willing to cross a picket line.Workers have taken similar actions at other airports, including LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy International Airports in New York, creating disruptions that “ranged from noticeable to marginal,” he said.Joseph Schwieterman, a transportation expert and economics professor at DePaul University in Chicago, noted the city has a few days to try to come up with a “plan B.”“This will be a mass headache, but a crisis it is not,” he said.O’Hare has about 190 gates and is a hub airport for both American and United airlines, which hold the majority of those gates.More news:  Apply now for AQSC’s agent cruise ratesAuto club AAA predicts it will be an especially busy Thanksgiving weekend of travelling.

Where Is Mortgage Fraud Risk Rising

first_img Florida continues to be a high-risk state for mortgage frauds according to the latest data from CoreLogic’s quarterly analysis of mortgage fraud risks across the country. The CoreLogic National Mortgage Application Fraud Risk Index held steady for the fourth quarter of 2018 at 151 compared to the previous quarter. However, the index rose 10 percent compared to the same period in 2017.The report said that while purchase applications accounted for 72 percent of all transactions in the last three quarters, origination volumes continued to decrease due to higher interest rates and seasonality in the fourth quarter.Among the core-based statistical areas (CBSAs) covered by the report, eight of the 10 highest-risk cities were in Florida. The report noted that Miami especially had shown a “notable increase of 29 percent” in mortgage fraud risk during the quarter. In fact, the city has topped the list for three consecutive quarters. The New York-Newark-Jersey City area and Los Angeles were the only other CBSAs among the 10 most at-risk cities from mortgage fraud.The report indicated that one of the factors that were influencing the rising mortgage fraud risk was the increase in loan application activity in “areas with relatively high delinquency.” It said that such areas could be “more prone to mortgage fraud schemes such as illegal flips, bailouts, and straw buyers.”Looking at Miami specifically, the reported said that the city was showing a trend towards higher levels of purchase transactions “with layered risk factors such as LLC sellers, flips, unusual levels of property appreciation, and occupancy red flags.” In fact, in some instances, the properties were being sold multiple times for cash between non-individuals with significant price increases each time before being sold to an individual and financed, the report said.Cape Coral, Lakeland, Orlando, Tampa, North Port, and Jacksonville, were the other cities that were at a high-risk from mortgage fraud in the Sunshine State. in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Origination January 18, 2019 1,569 Views Sharecenter_img Where Is Mortgage Fraud Risk Rising?

Total and ENI apply to explore gas block seven

first_imgEnergy companies Total and ENI have applied for an exploration licence in block seven of Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone, the energy ministry announced on Monday.In a statement, the ministry said the application will be examined in the next few days and a proposal will then be submitted to the cabinet.Last October, the government invited bids from companies already licensed to explore offshore Cyprus to express an interest in block seven.The invitation concerns companies with concessions bordering the block – six, eight, 10, 11.Energy Minister Giorgos Lakkotrypis said at the time that this option had been chosen instead of launching another licensing round because “there are particular geological reasons related to the Calypso discovery.”The Calypso field is located in block six where Italy’s ENI carried out an exploratory drill early this year and is believed to hold between six and eight trillion cubic feet.Meanwhile, Turkey’s Energy and Natural Resources Minister Fatih Dönmez was quoted as saying they were starting drilling off the coast of Mersin on Monday.Turkey’s drillship, Fatih made its way to the Mediterranean in late October to start drilling the Alanya-1 well, offshore of Alanya, near the Mediterranean town of Antalya.You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityEarthquake coverage that comes with optionsCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSUVs | Search AdsThese SUVs Will Take Your Breath Away.
