Aimias largest investor files counterclaim against company as civil war continues

NEW YORK — Aimia Inc.’s largest investor has filed a counterclaim against the loyalty company and six current and former members of the board.Mittleman Brothers also filed a statement of defence in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice that rebuts Aimia’s July lawsuit accusing the dissident investor of violating a contracted truce.The litigious showdown is the latest development in a drawn-out battle over control of the board of directors.In a statement, Chris Mittleman called it “extremely disappointing” that the Aimia board opted to take matters to the courts, saying shareholders “deserve nothing less” than seasoned business professionals.Mittleman’s counterclaim names Aimia chairman Bill McEwan, chief executive Jeremy Rabe, former chairman Robert Brown, board members Thomas Gardner and Robert Kriedler and former board member Emma Griffin.Aimia’s lawsuit accuses Mittleman, which owns 23.2 per cent of the company, of continuing to advocate for radical change during a “standstill agreement” and attempting to orchestrate a covert campaign to encourage other shareholders to withhold their support for Aimia’s nominees at the 2019 annual meeting.Aimia sold the Aeroplan rewards business to Air Canada earlier this year for $450 million, leaving it with significant cash on hand but also questions about its future.

Amid multiple crises UN childrens agency deploys largest aid operation ever in

“UNICEF’s massive deployment responds to a massive need in many different countries at the same time,” said Shanelle Hall, UNICEF’s Director of supply and logistics operations in a statement today. “Now it is vital to keep humanitarian corridors open so these supplies continue to reach the children who desperately need them.”Ms. Hall added that kids are facing a lot of crises in the world and that they are under a lot of stress. Foreseeing the need to ramp up the response to conflict in Iraq and the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, UNICEF had secured as many chartered flights as possible for August. In 27 days, the organization’s Copenhagen supply hub has dispatched 33 emergency cargo loads to the world’s most troubled regions. The total amount of aid delivered would fill 19 cargo jumbo jets and has primarily gone to six countries. For instance, Central African Republic has received 26 metric tonnes in medical equipment, vaccines, emergency food rations and hardware to dig water wells. Among essential medicines, anti-malarial supplies have been critical in protecting children from the country’s leading cause of death.UNICEF also delivered 500 metric tonnes of emergency food rations, water, medical supplies, tents, and ready-to-use therapeutic food to Iraq’s displaced families and children in the northwest. UNICEF’s dispatch of 4 million doses of polio vaccine will protect children’s health in the wake of the re-emergence of the disease due to the breakdown of health systems in neighbouring Syria, Ms. Hall said. Liberia’s effort to contain the Ebola outbreak has been strengthened by 248 metric tonnes of supplies from UNICEF such as latex gloves, safety goggles, and overalls to protect health workers, concentrated chlorine disinfectant and a range of essential medicines. Meanwhile, Gaza has received nearly 3.5 metric tonnes in supplies, mostly in the form of essential medicines to restock hospitals and health facilities that have been damaged in the conflict. UNICEF has also supplied vaccines which are essential to protect children who become especially vulnerable during massive population displacements.In South Sudan, UNICEF provided 34 metric tonnes of nutritional support and supplies, including ready-to-use therapeutic foods for vulnerable children, 50,000 of whom are at risk of dying from malnutrition. Nearly one million children under five years old in South Sudan will require treatment for acute malnutrition this year.In Syria, Ms. Hall said in August the Children’s Fund delivered 89 metric tonnes of water purification tablets and education kits. UNICEF is also bringing in over 156 metric tonnes of health, education, and water supplies for displaced Syrian families in Lebanon and Jordan. Preparation for winter is underway as UNICEF stockpiles children’s winter clothing sourced from local suppliers in the region.“During multiple crises of this magnitude children must come first. UNICEF is committed to staying the course. As long as children are in need we will continue to undertake these urgent, complex and vast supply operations,” said Ms. Hall. read more

Coyotes beat Kings 21 as Hill earns 4th straight win

LOS ANGELES — Nick Schmaltz had a power-play goal, Adin Hill made 25 saves for his fourth straight win and the Arizona Coyotes beat the Los Angeles Kings 2-1 on Tuesday night.Lawson Crouse scored a short-handed goal for the Coyotes, undefeated since acquiring Schmaltz in a trade with Chicago on Nov. 25. Hill has stopped 84 of 86 shots since replacing an injured Antti Raanta to start the third period at Minnesota on Nov. 27.Alec Martinez scored and Jonathan Quick made 18 saves for the Kings, held to two goals or fewer in five consecutive games.Dustin Brown appeared to have scored the tying goal with 56.4 seconds remaining, but it was immediately waived off because his stick was over his head when he tipped the puck in.Crouse put the Coyotes up 1-0 at 18:25 of the first period with his fifth goal. Crouse and Josh Archibald got ahead of the Kings for an odd-man rush, with Crouse netting his second short-handed goal of the season on a backhand as he charged in on Quick.Schmaltz increased the lead at 5:56 of the second, extending his point streak to three games. He has two goals and three assists in four games with the Coyotes.Martinez made it 2-1 at 14:15 of the third, scoring for the second straight game.NOTES: Kings forward Trevor Lewis (foot) had surgery and will be out four to five weeks. Lewis has missed 11 games since getting injured in practice on Nov. 16. … Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet did not have an update on forward Michael Grabner, who injured an eye Saturday against St. Louis. … The Kings activated forward Nikita Scherbak (lower body) off injured reserve.

Mushkin announces worlds largest mSATA SSD at 480GB

first_imgIf you want an ultra-thin laptop like an Ultrabook, manufacturers are pretty limited on the components they can fit inside that slender case. Storage is no exception, with most relying on an mSATA SSD as the more typical 2.5-inch drives just won’t fit. That also means storage space has been quite limited to just a couple hundred of gigabytes. Until now, that is.Today the upper limit of 256GB was smashed, as manufacturer Mushkin has announced the world’s largest mSATA SSD. It offers up 480GB of storage space in a drive measuring just 50.8 x 29.85 x 4.85mm.As the latest addition to Mushkin’s Atlas range of drives, it also has the performance on offer to make this a very desirable SSD for your laptop. Although read/write speeds for the 480GB version haven’t been officially announced, the 256GB model achieves 560MB/s reads and 530MB/s writes over a 6Gb/s SATA III connection using a SandForce controller. The 480GB model will at the very least equal those speeds, if not improve on them slightly.The Atlas ships with TRIM and S.M.A.R.T. support, comes with a 3-year limited warranty, and is expected to start shipping by the middle of January next year. It’s by no means cheap, though. On its own you can expect to pay $499.99, although that price is sure to drop significantly for any manufacturers wanting to ship one inside an Ultrabook. Still, at around a $1 per gigabyte for such a speedy drive, it’s still a very tempting proposition.Read more at the Mushkin press release, via TechCrunchlast_img read more

La Russie lance avec succès un vaisseau de ravitaillement vers lISS

first_imgLa Russie lance avec succès un vaisseau de ravitaillement vers l’ISSDimanche, l’agence spatiale russe a procédé au lancement réussi d’un vaisseau censé ravitailler la Station spatiale internationale notamment en vivres. C’est le premier ravitailleur à décoller depuis l’accident du Progress M-12M en août dernier. Les échecs de l’agence spatiale russe ne semblent plus qu’être un lointain souvenir. Dimanche, une fusée Soyouz U a décollé avec succès à 10H11 GMT du cosmodrome de Baïkonour au Kazakhstan. Elle emportait à son bord le vaisseau spatial Progress M13-M qu’elle a libéré quelques minutes plus tard, le laissant entrer en orbite comme prévu. Le cargo est censé rejoindre la Station spatiale internationale (ISS) à laquelle il s’arrimera mercredi à 11H40 GMT. À lire aussiSpaceX : un satellite d’Elon Musk manque d’entrer en collision avec un satellite de l’ESABut de la mission : ravitailler l’ISS et apporter des vivres aux astronautes qui n’ont rien reçu depuis plusieurs mois. En effet, en août dernier, un vaisseau semblable, le Progress M12-M était censé atteindre la station mais celui-ci s’est écrasé quelques heures après le décollage suite à des négligences et un dysfonctionnement dans la fusée Soyouz qui le lançait. Un échec qui avait sur le moment suscité de nombreuses inquiétudes au sein des agences spatiales qui avaient même évoqué un abandon potentiel de l’ISS si on ne parvenait pas à la ravitailler.Aujourd’hui, tout semble donc rentrer dans l’ordre. “Plus de 50 variétés de denrées alimentaires seront acheminées à l’ISS, permettant de cette façon d’offrir aux astronautes les mêmes plats une fois tous les 16 jours au lieu des huit actuels et rendant, de la sorte, leur menu plus varié”, a indiqué Alexandre Agouréev, responsable de l’Institut des problèmes médicaux et biologiques cité par Ria Novosti. Il a également ajouté : “en outre, les cosmonautes russes auront droit aux pommes, aux oranges, aux pamplemousses et aux oignons, sans compter un demi-kilo d’ail.  Quant aux “gourmandises”, il y a beaucoup d’autorisations à obtenir pour les acheminer”. Mais outre ces denrées, le Progress M13-M emporte également à son bord un mini-appareil spatial “Tchibis-M” destiné à étudier les orages et les éclairs dans l’atmosphère de notre planète. Trois nouveaux astronautes bientôt sur l’ISS “Nous félicitons nos collègues russes du lancement réussi du Progress de dimanche. Le vaisseau est sur le chemin pour rejoindre la Station spatiale internationale. En attendant les résultats d’une série de réunions de préparation de vol, ce lancement réussi a ouvert la scène au prochain lancement de Soyouz, planifié pour mi-novembre. La mission Soyouz de décembre restaurera à six la taille de l’équipage de la station spatiale et permettra de poursuivre les rotations normales de l’équipage”, a commenté la NASA dans un communiqué.

Haier Exhibits A Wireless HDTV Video System at the 2010 CES w

first_img © 2010 PhysOrg.com Explore further 2010 CES: Haier features the “completely wireless HDTV” ABI Research (Technology Market Research Company) said last year it expected 1 million installations will be performed by 2012. Currently WHDI is supported by 40 vendors, including Broadcom, LG, Intel, NEC, Panasonic, Samsung, Sony, Philips and Toshiba. In 2010 and beyond we can expect to see manufactures experimenting with different wireless technology. Until consumers start seeing the sets in stores, it’s difficult to determine which manufactures will have the most innovative wire free HDTV’s on the market. Intel, Microsoft, Dell band together for WiGig By using a coil that is approximately 1 foot by 1 foot in size, at the back of the TV set, 100 watts of electricity can be supplied at a distance up to 1 meter (3.28 feet). TV images are displayed by using WHDI (Wireless Home Digital Interface), a high-speed communication standard for wirelessly transmitting high-definition images. This leaves the back of the TV completely wire free. The WHDI uses a frequency band of 5 GHz which is the industry standard for WHDI technology developed by Amimon Ltd. By utilizing a bandwidth of 40 MHz, data rates up to 3 Gbps can be transmitted to transfer uncompressed 1080p 60Hz video to the TV; the maximum transmission range is one hundred feet.The wireless power transfer technology, utilizing magnetic coupling, was developed by WiTricity Corp, a US base venture firm that was founded by an MIT professor in April 2007. Electricity is transferred through the use of two resonant devices of the same frequency. This enables the maximum power to be transferred. center_img Citation: Haier Exhibits A Wireless HDTV Video System at the 2010 CES (w/ Video) (2010, January 13) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2010-01-haier-wireless-hdtv-video-ces.html (PhysOrg.com) — Haier America Digital Products Group (Chinese company) demonstrated the first completely wireless 32 inch LCD TV that is powered wirelessly up to a distance of 1 meter (3.28 feet).

Switching over to healthy food

first_imgWhen it comes to new trends in dining out, customers are switching over to healthy and natural food (pesticide free) more than ever. They are always on the lookout for wellness alternatives in their food. Sous Chef Prem k Pogakula, The Imperial says, “The preference this year  will be more for GMO free ingredients and as I see it, things will become more intense in the coming years. With time crunch in hand and both the partners working in  a nuclear family scenario, one pot meals are super easy, highly nutritious with adequate protein and starch content and are perfect for a quick meal. You can also call it as Urban cooking.” Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’“Food is now becoming a highly rated genre and food connoisseurs are always on the lookout for old, forgotten and classic global recipes as they possess simple and straight flavours. People prefer them over fusion cuisine (which is somehow still a matter of confusion and needs to evolve). Only experimented cuisine calls for fusion food on your palate. It can never ever replace or take over the classic cuisine,” he said.The Chef further added, “I also strongly believe that the dining scenario in the city is in for a change in the coming year. Experiments are still on but the vital aspect is that old and lost cuisines are being re-discovered. Chefs are working with emotional food along with childhood or regional memories. Your palate can be a sweet creation when you are delighted or spicy, peppery food when anger takes over you which will also see a rise.  Food memories specifically offer a magical feeling.”last_img read more

first_img May 1, 2013 — Texas Children’s Hospital is the first children’s hospital in the United States to begin using a positron emission tomography/magnetic resonance imaging (PET/MRI) scanner, a state-of-the-art technology that will help in early and accurate diagnosis of various cancers, heart diseases and degenerative neurological disorders. Texas Children’s is also the only hospital in the Texas Medical Center to have this machine. PET/MRI is a hybrid imaging technology that incorporates MRI soft tissue morphological imaging and PET functional imaging. This new imaging device sequentially performs PET and MRI scans, producing more detailed images than either technique alone. Hybrid PET and MRI scans eliminate the need to move patients from one imaging unit to another, making it easier to combine data from both scans to produce enhanced details.“To be able to study the structural and functional changes in the body may allow us to detect abnormalities, even before the clinical symptoms of a disease begin to show,” said George S. Bisset III, M.D., chief of pediatric radiology at Texas Children’s Hospital, professor of radiology at Baylor College of Medicine and immediate past president of the Radiological Society of North America.According to multiple research papers written on the PET/MRI scanner, it is reasonable to expect that PET/MRI will provide new insights in the field of neuroscience and neurologic disorders, such as neurodegeneration, brain ischemia, neuro-oncology and seizures. It will also be used to diagnose many other illnesses, including head and neck tumors, many types of cancer, liver tumors, pelvic tumors, musculoskeletal tumors and heart diseases.Until recently, scientists could not integrate PET and MRI scanners because powerful MRI magnets interfered with the imaging detectors on the PET scanner. PET/MRI may be able to replace the PET/CT scans now used to investigate cancers and other problems in pediatric patients. If so, PET/MRI scans will expose patients to significantly less radiation dose than that required for PET/CT scans.”Radiation exposure is a source of concern for any patient, but it has to be watched with particular care in pediatric patients who are still growing and developing,” said Bisset. “An opportunity to get information essential for medical care at half the radiation exposure would be particularly welcome both in pediatric patients and in adults who need multiple scans during treatment.”For more information: www.texaschildrens.org  Technology | Virtual and Augmented Reality | June 04, 2019 Ann Arbor Startup Launches Augmented Reality MRI Simulator SpellBound, an Ann Arbor startup specializing in augmented reality (AR) tools for children in hospitals, has officially… read more News | Ultrasound Imaging | May 03, 2019 Hong Kong Polytechnic University Develops Palm-sized 3-D Scoliosis Ultrasound Imaging System The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) announced the development of a palm-sized 3-D ultrasound imaging system… read more News | Neuro Imaging | August 16, 2019 ADHD Medication May Affect Brain Development in Children A drug used to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) appears to affect development of the brain’s… read more Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.
