Police ticketing unlocked and running vehicles in Fort St. John

first_imgIt states that, “a driver must not permit a motor vehicle to stand unattended or parked unless the driver has locked it or made it secure in a manner that prevents its unauthorized use.” As the start of their Auto Theft Prevention Campaign, police started leaving notices on the windshields of running vehicles left unlocked, as well as those with valuables left in plain sight, in November. “We are very pleased with how the message was received by motorists,” says Corporal Jodi Shelkie. “Drivers realize that by locking their vehicle every time they get out of it and taking the extra time to lock valuables out of sight pays off. No one wants to have their vehicle stolen or to have it broken into.” – Advertisement -Anyone who still hasn’t gotten the message will certainly learn a lesson this month as RCMP kicks its campaign into full gear.last_img read more

Govt, business unite against crime

first_img6 July 2007Business Against Crime South Africa, backed by over 250 CEOs through its association with the Industry Alignment Forum, has committed itself to an intensified partnership with the government in the fight against crime in the country.The partnership is starting to make a meaningful impact on violent organised crime, with the business coalition claiming successes in the priority areas of house robberies, vehicle hijacking and business robberies.Speaking after the release of the 2006/07 crime statistics this week, Business Against Crime CEO Siphiwe Nzimande cited as an example of the progress being made the police-led “flood and flush” operations which had “yielded over 5 400 arrests during the month of January to February.”By focusing on outstanding warrants and crime scenes, the SA Police Service (SAPS) had identified and arrested 298 suspects in April 2007 alone, Nzimande said, adding that the business-government partnership would ensure that these arrests received priority attention when it came to prosecutions.Through its partnership with the government, South Africa’s business sector has also completed and adopted minimum standards to regulate the cash-in-transit industry, while developing innovative crime prevention initiatives in the retail environment, particularly at shopping centres.Other support initiatives mooted by business include a more effective exchange of intelligence between business and the police, micro-dotting of business vehicles for easier identification, and more effective cooperation between the country’s private security firms and police.Organised business is also considering the design and implementation of improved cash management and the upgrading of close circuit television systems countrywide to support law enforcement and prosecution.The partnership between the government and Business Against Crime was strengthened further with the launch earlier this year of the Anti-Crime Leadership Forum, comprising four working groups co-chaired by government and business leaders.According to Nzimande, the working groups, whose task it is to come up with tangible crime-fighting initiatives, are busy finalising plans to mobilise society to fight crime, to tackle violent organised crime, and to review and improve performance in SA’s criminal justice system.Nzimande said he was confident that these and other initiatives would yield better results in the months to come, adding that information collected by businesses between April and June “confirms our cautious optimism”.At the same time, Nzimande said, “sustained work and commitment will be required by all who are dedicated to the anti-crime struggle”.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

OpenCalais to Add Semantic Metadata to Oracle Databases

first_imgEnterprise giant Oracle released its Database 11g Release 2 today, and it now supports OpenCalais, the Semantic Web service from Thomson Reuters. Native support for OpenCalais means users can now extract rich semantic metadata about people, places, companies, and events. Oracle directly calls the OpenCalais API through your normal database administration, though users will still have to grab an API key from Reuters. OpenCalais began as the Clear Forest service and was acquired by Reuters back in 2007. By pairing with a leading enterprise-class database like Oracle, OpenCalais will prove that it can handle increasingly large document transactions, providing better search indexing and other semantic know-how to businesses as well as the consumer Web. Other than getting an API key, incorporating OpenCalais should be straightforward. The basic gist is that it will take just about any type of text or HTML document, from Microsoft Word to Adobe PDF, and add simple yet useful metadata. That metadata is extracted through natural-language processing (NLP) that identifies the “who, what, and when” contained in an unstructured document. Oracle’s Spatial 11g, an RDF management platform, directly calls the API to perform the transaction. The basic OpenCalais service can do up to 40,000 transactions per day at a maximum rate of four transactions per second. For those needing more transactions or those who require an SLA (which is many enterprises), you’re going to have to use the commercial version. If you’re interested in incorporating OpenCalais, we suggest you take a close look at the FAQ to be sure about which version you’re going to require. steven walling Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… IT + Project Management: A Love Affaircenter_img Tags:#enterprise#Products 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Related Posts last_img read more

Adhesion

first_imgDefinitionAdhesions are bands of scar-like tissue that form between two surfaces inside the body and cause them to stick together.Alternative NamesPelvic adhesion; Intraperitoneal adhesion; Intrauterine adhesionCausesAs the body moves, tissues or organs inside are normally able to shift around each other. This is because these tissues have slippery surfaces. Inflammation (swelling), surgery, or injury can cause adhesions to form and prevent this movement. Adhesions can occur almost anywhere in the body, including:Joints, such as the shoulderEyesInside the abdomen or pelvisAdhesions can become larger or tighter over time. Problems may occur if the adhesions cause an organ or body part to:TwistPull out of positionBe unable to move normallyThe risk of forming adhesions is high after bowel or female organ surgeries. Surgery using a laparoscope is less likely to cause adhesions than open surgery.Other causes of adhesions in the abdomen or pelvis include:Appendicitis, most often when the appendix breaks open (ruptures)CancerEndometriosisInfections in the abdomen and pelvisRadiation treatmentAdhesions around the joints may occur:After surgery or traumaWith certain types of arthritisWith overuse of a joint or tendonSymptomsAdhesions in joints, tendons, or ligaments make it harder to move the joint. They may also cause pain.Adhesions in the belly (abdomen) may cause a blockage of the intestines. Symptoms include:Bloating or swelling of your bellyConstipationNausea and vomitingNo longer being able to pass gasPain in the belly that is severe and crampyAdhesions in the pelvis may cause chronic or long-term pelvic pain.Exams and TestsadvertisementMost of the time, the adhesions cannot be seen using x-rays or imaging tests.Hysterosalpingography may help diagnose adhesions inside the uterus or Fallopian tubes.X-rays of the abdomen, barium contrast studies, and CT scans may help diagnose a blockage of the intestines caused by adhesions.Endoscopy (a way of looking inside the body using a flexible tube that has a small camera on the end) may help diagnose adhesions:Hysteroscopy looks inside the uterusLaparoscopy looks inside the abdomen and pelvisTreatmentSurgery may be done to separate the adhesions. This can let the organ regain normal movement and reduce symptoms. However, the risk for more adhesions goes up with more surgeries.Depending on the location of the adhesions, a barrier may be placed at the time of surgery to help reduce the chance of the adhesions returning.Outlook (Prognosis)The outcome is good in most cases.Possible ComplicationsAdhesions can cause various disorders, depending on the tissues affected.In the eye, adhesion of the iris to the lens can lead to glaucoma.In the intestines, adhesions can cause partial or complete bowel obstruction.Adhesions inside the uterine cavity, called Asherman syndrome, can cause a woman to have irregular menstrual cycles and be unable to get pregnant.Pelvic adhesions that involve scarring of the fallopian tubes can lead to infertility and reproductive problems.Abdominal and pelvic adhesions can cause chronic pain.When to Contact a Medical ProfessionalCall your health care provider if you have:Abdominal painAn inability to pass gasNausea and vomiting that do not go awayPain in the belly that is severe and crampyReferencesMunireddy S, Kavalukas SL, Barbul A.

Gabby Douglas Clinches Spot on US Womens Gymnastics Team

Sixteen-year-old Gabby Douglas will have the honor of representing the U.S. Gymnastics team in the 2012 London Games thanks to her victory yesterday at the 2012 Olympic trials in San Jose, where she defeated favored Jordyn Wieber.The victory was a bit of redemption for Douglas, who lost to Wieber at the 2012 Visa National Championship. Wieber held a 0.3 lead over Douglas after the first day of the trials, but Douglas shook off some large balance checks during her beam routine to defeat Wieber by one-tenth of a point.“I just give all the glory to God. He’s just blessed me so much,” Douglas told reporters. “I’m so excited and honored to do my duties in London for Team USA.”Wieber shouldn’t feel too bad, as she is a shoe-in to make the four-woman roster as a coach’s selection. After the automatic selection, coaches pick the final three women, which often creates controversy when somebody is left off the team who was expected to be chosen. read more

Diet profoundly affects sleep quality

first_imgAn individual’s caloric intake and body weight can deeply influence the time spent in specific sleep stages, says a new study. Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania analysed  sleep patterns among 36 healthy adults who experienced two consecutive nights of 10 hours in bed per night at the university hospital. Using polysomnography, the researchers recorded physiological changes that occur during sleep on the second night. Body composition and resting energy expenditure were assessed on the morning following the first night of sleep, while food and drink intake was measured each day.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The researchers found that body mass index (BMI), body fat percentage and resting energy expenditure were not significant predictors of sleep stage duration, but that overweight adults exhibited a higher percentage of time spent in the rapid-eye movement (REM) stage of sleep than normal-weight adults. REM is a sleep stage when dreams typically occur characterised by faster heart rate and breathing. The researchers also found that increased protein intake predicted less stage 2 sleep– the period when a person’s heart rate and breathing are relatively normal and the body temperature lowers slightly– and predicted more REM sleep. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe study findings will be presented at SLEEP 2016 – a joint meeting of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the Sleep Research Society to be held in Denver, Colorado, from June 11 to 15. “In a culture of increasing pressure to sacrifice sleep to maintain productivity, this research adds to the body of knowledge on how lifestyle behaviours may influence the quality of our sleep” said study lead author Andrea M Spaeth. A 2013 study from the team found that those with chronic sleep restriction may be more susceptible to weight gain due to the increased consumption of calories during late night hours. A 2015 study from that group found that eating less late at night may help curb the concentration and alertness deficits that accompany sleep deprivation.last_img read more
