Here is the quick explanation of how it works, via SBNation.To begin the season, each FBS team was given control of its surrounding territory. Each game that involves one or two teams with territory results in the winner claiming all of it. Results carry on week to week, so teams are always in the process of trying to regain or expand land.

first_img India Today Web Desk LondonJune 11, 2019UPDATED: June 11, 2019 17:55 IST Shikhar Dhawan got hit on his left thumb by a Pat Cummins bouncer during the match against Australia on Sunday (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSShikhar Dhawan’s injury means India will have to open with Rohit Sharma and KL RahulRahul batted at the crucial No. 4 position in the first two games for IndiaRishabh Pant, who was in the standbys list, is the frontrunner to replace Dhawan in the squadWith Shikhar Dhawan getting ruled out of the playing XI, the Indian team will be forced to open the batting with Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul in the upcoming World Cup 2019 matches.Cricketer Harbhajan Singh feels the injury blow to Shikhar Dhawan provides a great opportunity for other teams to cash in against India in the upcoming matches of the World Cup 2019.India’s opening combination had fired the team to victories in the first two games with Rohit Sharma and Dhawan both hitting hundreds against the Proteas and the defending champions respectively. But with Dhawan getting ruled out for 3 weeks, Harbhajan feels the other teams that are scheduled to face India next have the perfect opportunity to upset India’s momentum in this tournament.India will be facing New Zealand (June 13), Pakistan (June 16), Afghanistan (June 22), West Indies (June 27), England (June 30), Bangladesh (July 2) and Sri Lanka (July 6) in their remaining games.”Shikhar Dhawan’s injury opens the door for other teams as well. When you see Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma, they have been opening for many years and have been extremely successful.Now suddenly Shikhar is not there. You have another opener in KL Rahul but he hasn’t opened in the recent past. It’s going to be a challenge,” Harbhajan Singh told India Today on Tuesday.All-rounder Vijay Shankar is also present in the squad and has been warming the benches till now. But Harbhajan is not very confident of Shankar’s abilities with the bat at No.4.”If Vijay Shankar comes in at No. 4, I don’t feel that confident about the move. I am worried about the No. 4 slot. If you lose 2 wickets in the first 10 overs, then you will have Vijay Shankar. It can happen.advertisement”You have seen many teams losing early wickets in the English conditions. That’s where I am worried. Shankar is a newcomer. He hasn’t performed at this level before. Teams would be looking to crack that door against India and enter in,” Harbhajan said.Shikhar Dhawan was ruled out for 3 weeks on Tuesday after scans revealed a fracture on his left thumb. He had suffered the injury during India’s 36-run victory against Australia in the match at The Oval on Sunday. But Dhawan continued to bat through pain and scored a match-winning 117, earning him the player-of-the-match award as well.But now with Dhawan out of the playing XI, the Indian team will be forced to open the batting with Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, who batted at No.4 in the first two matches against South Africa and Australia.Rahul has showed good form at the crucial No.4 position and hit a hundred in the warm-up game against Bangladesh last month. He chipped in with 26 and 11 not out against South Africa and Australia respectively.The Indian team management has now been forced to look at Rishabh Pant as the likely replacement for Dhawan in the squad while Shreyas Iyer’s name is also doing the rounds, according to sources. Pant is the frontrunner as he is in the standbys list. But only time will tell if he comes in the squad and gets slotted in at No.4 straightaway or not.”It’s a good opportunity for Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant to be part of the squad. If anything goes wrong with Shikhar Dhawan for more than 3 weeks, then I would want to pick Pant.”It could be 3 weeks depending on how bad the injury is. They are actually assuming. In the end, it will come down to how Shikhar Dhawan will feel batting with the injured finger. Even if the injury heals, it will depend on him to get fully fit,” Harbhajan Singh said.Also Read | Injured Shikhar Dhawan ruled out of World Cup 2019 for 3 weeksAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Rishabh Pant or Shreyas Iyer likely to replace injured Shikhar DhawanAlso Read | Pant ideal replacement for injured Dhawan, Rahane not a bad option too: HarbhajanAlso Watch:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

first_imgNova Scotia residents whose properties have been affected by recent flooding are reminded that swiftly moving and deep flood water can impact the quality of their well water. If the well is not tightly capped, sediment and flood water could enter the well and contaminate it. Wells that are more than 10 years old, or less than 50 feet deep are more likely to be contaminated, even if there is no apparent damage. Residents should not use their well water supply for drinking, cooking, or bathing until the well water has been tested and rendered satisfactory. A list of certified water testing laboratories is available on the Department of Environment and Labour’s website at www.gov.ns.ca/enla/water under the link for Private Drinking Water.

first_imgFor the first time, an independent agency will investigate serious incidents involving police in Nova Scotia. The Serious Incident Response Team is ready to take cases starting today, April 20. “This is a historic day for policing in Nova Scotia,” said Justice Minister Ross Landry. “This independent agency will give Nova Scotians utmost confidence in the investigation of serious incidents involving police.” The agency will investigate serious matters such as death, serious injury, sexual assault, or other public-interest concerns involving the police. It can independently launch an investigation or it can begin an investigation after a referral from a chief of police, the head of the RCMP in Nova Scotia or the Minister of Justice. It can also investigate after a complaint from the public. “The creation of the Serious Incident Response Team marks a new chapter in the Nova Scotia justice system and brings a level of front-line accountability that Nova Scotians have asked for,” said Ronald MacDonald, Serious Incident Response Team director. “We intend to meet the high expectations of the government, the police and especially the public,” The agency has two civilian investigators with more than 66 years of combined policing experience, two full-time seconded investigators, and will utilize other seconded police resources as required. Decision-making authority will reside solely with the civilian director. Amendments to the Police Act to create the Serious Incident Response Team were passed by the legislature in fall 2010.

first_imgMore illegal tobacco has been taken off the streets of Nova Scotia following an investigation by Service Nova Scotia’s Compliance and Special Investigations Unit. On Saturday, Sept. 9, during a traffic stop near Oxford, Cumberland County, two men from Glace Bay were found in possession of more than 70,000 illegal cigarettes. The vehicle was seized and the men arrested. The tobacco has a tax value of $19,264 in provincial taxes and $14,700 in federal taxes. The Cumberland District RCMP assisted Service Nova Scotia with the investigation. The men are scheduled to appear in Amherst Provincial Court on Nov. 27 to face charges under the Nova Scotia Revenue Act, Excise Act 2001 and Criminal Code. Service Nova Scotia, through its Audit and Enforcement section, is responsible for reducing illegal tobacco in the province by working with its law enforcement partners and through education and enforcement. Since 2006-07 the amount of illegal tobacco in the province has decreased from 30 per cent of all tobacco consumed to less than 10 per cent. Anyone with information regarding the sale and manufacturing of illegal tobacco is asked to contact their local police or Crime Stoppers. Calls to Crime Stoppers are not taped or traced. If a seizure of illegal tobacco is made based on a tip, callers qualify for a cash reward.last_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: Cracking the whip on corruption in higher judiciary, Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi has allowed CBI to lodge a regular case against serving Allahabad High Court judge Justice S N Shukla on allegations of graft for favours to a private medical college for MBBS admission. The permission to the CBI to register the case came after the agency wrote a letter to Justice Gogoi stating that a preliminary inquiry was registered by it against the judge and others on the advise of the previous CJI Dipak Misra when the matter regarding the alleged misconduct by the judge was brought to his knowledge. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ The CBI also placed before the CJI a brief note on the preliminary inquiry along with the chronological chart while seeking permission for initiating a regular case for investigation. Taking note of the letter and documents provided by the CBI, Justice Ranjan Gogoi in his communication to the agency, said: “I have considered the note appended to your letter on the above subject. In the facts and circumstances of the case I am constrained to grant permission to initiate a regular case for investigation as sought for in your letter…” Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K An official of the Supreme Court said this is for the first time that a permission has been granted to register case against a sitting high court judge. There have been instances earlier that in corruption cases against the members of higher judiciary recommendations were made to the government for their removal through impeachment proceedings which never culminated into removal. The development against Justice Shukla comes months after the apex court, in its administrative side, had taken away judicial work from him. The CJI’s decision to allow the probe agency to proceed against a serving high court judge assumes significance in wake of its earlier direction in the K Veeraswamy case in which it had prevented any investigating agency from lodging an FIR without first showing the evidence to the CJI for permission to investigate the judge.last_img read more

MONTREAL – Rona is hoping to convince investors of the long-term potential of Canada’s largest home-improvement chain by making strategic moves, including the sale of non-core assets, to improve profitability after years of focusing on topline growth.“This is really managing the business long-term and creating value long-term,” acting CEO Dominique Boies said in an interview Thursday after Rona disclosed the Quebec-based company’s strategic plan.“If someone wants cash-out tomorrow morning, that might not please them. But we’re not managing the business for the next quarter, we’re managing the business for the long run — so that’s why those strategic priorities are there.”Rona Inc. (TSX:RON) said it will take until Feb. 21 to evaluate what changes need to be made to unlock the “profit potential of a simplified business model.”The troubled company has been under pressure to improve its bottom line, especially since it rejected a lucrative takeover bid by U.S. rival Lowe’s.Earlier, Boies told a news conference that Rona had in fact offered to buy Lowe’s Canada in 2011 in order to reduce overcapacity in the market. Former Rona CEO Robert Dutton made the offer in a meeting with Lowe’s after the U.S. rival expressed an interest in a purchase agreement.Lowe’s second unofficial bid — which was dropped after the American company met stiff resistance from Rona’s board, Quebec politicians and the independent dealership owners that operate under Rona’s brands — had been worth $1.8 billion.Since then, Rona has reported dismal financial results, replaced its long-time chief executive officer and received a formal request from a major fund manager for a shareholder meeting to select a new board of directors.Its shares gained 30 cents to close at $10.45 in Thursday trading — well below the offer of $14.50 per share that the Rona board rejected in July.The former chief financial officer denied that the strategic plan is a defensive move to address mounting shareholder dissatisfaction with Rona’s performance.“It’s a step where right now of course we need to improve the financial performance of Rona and that’s not defensive at all,” Boies said.Under the leadership of Dutton, who left the company suddenly last month, Rona had amassed a retail network with a wide variety of store formats and sizes — many of them acquired by purchasing local and regional home improvement and building centres.Boies, 40, said the company will now focus on improving its lagging profits by reviewing all of its operation to see if they meet new criteria.“Today what’s different is there is no sacred cow,” he said. “We’ve grown all those businesses over the past 73 years and now we’re stopping, taking a deep breath and saying OK how do we envision the future.”The three priorities are: leverage the strength of Rona’s core business, grow key customer segments with a “more compelling value proposition” and unlock the profit potential of a simplified business model.Boies said he has no financial target for how much can be saved and won’t prejudge the process by suggesting what assets could be disposed and how many employees could be let go.Derek Dley of Canaccord Genuity said the strategic plan was similar to previous efforts and he was maintaining his $10.75 share price target.“Rona continues to face headwinds relating to a soft home-renovation-spending market in Canada, which will likely continue to pressure the company’s top line,” he wrote in a research note.“Until we witness sustained increases in consumer confidence, we expect the home-renovation-spending market to remain subdued.”Given the strength of its distribution network and contribution of big box stores in Quebec, the changes are more likely to affect its operations in the rest of the country, Boies said.He doesn’t think there’s necessarily a problem outside Quebec, but said the company needs to decide on which customer segments it wants to serve and how to deliver to those patrons.The acting CEO, who would like to get the job on a permanent basis after a head-hunting firm completes its search, said he will continue to meet with shareholders. He noted that Rona’s largest shareholder, Invesco, declined an invitation to meet a couple of weeks ago.Rona is looking to add two directors from outside Quebec to fill vacancies, whereas Invesco wants a clean sweep of directors at next May’s annual meeting.Boies said it can’t control how shareholders will vote at the meeting, but said the existing board remains steadfast against a takeover by its U.S. rival.“The position of the board to the proposal was unanimous and it was based on the long-term value creation potential of Rona and this hasn’t changed,” he said.“So basically the answer is still the same and we strongly believe that long-term it’s way better than an opportunistic proposal from a third party.”Rona currently has nearly 30,000 employees and 830 locations under its banner, giving Rona a bigger reach in Canada than Home Depot or Lowe’s. Home Depot has just 180 stores across Canada and Lowe’s has about 31 Canadian locations. by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Dec 6, 2012 4:36 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Rona looking to boost long-term profits through strategic moves, asset sales read more

“With its genuine openness and inclusive nature, the World Urban Forum (WUF9) is unique on the United Nations conference circuit,” said Maimunah Mohd Sharif, Executive Director of UN-Habitat in her remarks to the opening of the Forum, which runs through Saturday, 13 January.“It is a chance for stakeholders from all over the world – from ministers, local government and urban planners, to civil society groups, the private sector, academia and the media – to contribute to the global conversation about our cities and human settlements,” she added.Ms. Sharif called WUF9 a platform where people from all walks of life share their experience of finding homes, jobs and lives in urban spaces around the world and a chance for some of the world’s most marginalized to highlight their experiences in being denied some of the advantages cities pose.For current and future partners, the UN-Habitat chief saw the Forum as an opportunity to showcase the innovative ideas and solutions to challenges being confronted in urban and rural human settlements – and to learn from experts in the field.Ms. Sharif maintained that WUF9 is “the ideal platform to debate the contribution that positive urban development makes to delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular Goal 11, and the New Urban Agenda,” which was adopted in 2016 by the UN conference known as Habitat III.UN-HABITATMaimunah Mohd Sharif, Executive Director of UN Habitat addresses the joint opening of the World Urban Forum 9 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia., by UN-HABITATRecent debates and studies have indeed acknowledged that sustainable urbanization is an essential tool for addressing the global challenges of poverty, exclusion, conflict and climate change.“The New Urban Agenda comes at a critical moment, when for the first time in history over half of the world’s population is residing in cities,” she said, which, if planned and managed well, can be “the main tool for sustainable development and a solution to many of the challenges our planet is facing today.”WUF9 is the first major milestone after the adoption of the New Urban Agenda, which lays out the vision for future cities based on the science of urban development providing tools in crucial areas.Barely three weeks into her tenure as the UN-Habitat chief, Ms. Sharif said it is “an honour and a privilege” that the Forum, which is held every two years in different parts of the world, was being hosted in her native Malaysia, saying “Kuala Lumpur will have the chance to showcase some of its own urban innovations.”She concluded her statement with the assertion that she looked forward to joining “the global conversation on promoting socially, economically and environmentally sustainable cities for all.” read more

first_imgThe scientists speculate that the marks may have represented the ‘story’ of the victim’s life or a memorial to how they died. Whichever, they agree it must have been part of a ritual or ceremony to mark the person’s passing, like modern day funerary rites. Silvia Bello, Calleva Researcher at the Natural History Museum, says: “The engraved motif on the Gough’s Cave bone is similar to engravings observed in other Magdalenian European sites.“However, what is exceptional in this case is the choice of human bone and the cannibalistic context in which it was produced.“The sequence of modifications performed on this bone suggests that the engraving was a purposeful component of the cannibalistic practice, rich in symbolic connotations.“Although in previous analyses we have been able to suggest that cannibalism at Gough’s Cave was practiced as a symbolic ritual, this study provides the strongest evidence for this yet.”Gough’s Cave was first discovered in the 1880s and frequent excavations at the site have found evidence that humans lived there for thousands of years, including ‘Cheddar Man’, Britain’s oldest complete human skeleton, which dates from 7,150BC.DNA taken from the skeleton was been found to match that of Adrian Targett, a man living in the local area today. Cheddar Gorge in Somerset  Cheddar Gorge in Somerset’s Mendip Hills is one of Britain’s most beautiful natural wonders, with its sweeping limestone cliffs, and striking natural rock chambers.But new evidence suggests the picturesque site had a deeply sinister past.Paleontologists have discovered that around 15,000 years ago, British cave dwellers filleted and ate their dead relatives before inscribing markings on their bones in grisly prehistoric rituals.It is the first time that such practices have been found in the Paleolithic, or Old Stone Age – which dates from 2.6 million years ago to around 12,000BC – anywhere in the world.

Gough's Cave in Cheddar Gorge  Bones with markings Credit:Natural History Museum Scientists from the Natural History Museum in London and University College London (UCL) compared hundreds of cut-marks found on both human and animal bones at Gough’s Cave, one of the Gorge’s most impressive caverns.They discovered that one human bone had been disarticulated, filleted, chewed and then marked with a zig-zag design, before it was finally broken to extract the bone marrow.Researchers ruled out that the marks were made during the butchery process because they were found on a part of the bone with no muscle attachments.They concluded that the ‘zig-zagging incisions are undoubtedly engraving marks, produced with no utilitarian purpose but purely for artistic or symbolic representation.’ Gough’s Cave in Cheddar Gorge  Bones with markings last_img read more

Save The Bays Bahamas Waterkeeper Join Forces to Commend BREEF on Undersea

At the same time, we have this beautiful new sea garden drawing more attention to the area nearby and we just hope it will help sensitize everyone to the need to protect our waters and to stand up and say we will no longer tolerate abuse of the environment,” said Ferreira. Save The Bays has been a clarion voice in a growing cry for strong environmental protection legislation and since its founding 18 months ago, has found its message resonating with a wide audience. Its Facebook page has more than 17,100 Likes and its petition calls for an end to unregulated development, transparent government and other legislation to protect the environment.

first_imgCLEVELAND — The Seattle Seahawks found the end zone once. They weren’t allowed to stay.An illegal block — on a questionable call — wiped out Leon Washington’s 81-yard punt return for a touchdown Sunday, and the Seahawks couldn’t muster much offense in a sloppy 6-3 loss to the Cleveland Browns, whose only points came on a pair of long field goals by Phil Dawson.Desperate for a big play with backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst unable to move their offense and running back Marshawn Lynch injured, the Seahawks (2-4) finally got one in the third quarter from Washington only to have his TD nullified by a blocking-in-the-back penalty against cornerback Kennard Cox.Cox’s bump of Browns cornerback James Dockery near midfield was deemed illegal, although Seattle coach Pete Carroll wasn’t so sure about the call.“That’s a touchdown play and way after the fact here it (the penalty flag) comes,” Carroll said. “They (officials) saw something and whether it was legit, I don’t know. In this game, those calls are magnified and they play a big role. I kind of hope they were right. I hope they made the right choices on those things because it’s pretty hard to live with otherwise.”Watching the Seahawks offense was hard enough.With Whitehurst filling in for injured starter Tarvaris Jackson, the Seahawks (2-4) couldn’t do much with the ball. They managed just 137 yards of offense and only had the ball for 17:04 to Cleveland’s 42:56. Whitehurst completed 12 of 30 passes for 97 yards and was sacked three times.last_img read more

R Ashwin will also look at Jos Buttler and Jos Buttler will always look at the crease and stay inside the line. A clash which will be played after that Mankading episode and this adds extra spice to the contest.KXIP bowling coach Ryan Harris has already said that his side needs to be more consistent and do away with the sloppiness in the field. Rajasthan have the side to combat any conditions, but then, they need to cross the line.Predicted XI of both sides: File photo of Kings XI Punjab playersIANSKings XI Punjab Predicted XI: KL Rahul (wk), Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Sarfaraz Khan, David Miller, Mandeep Singh, Sam Curran, Hardus Viljoen, R Ashwin (c), M Ashwin, Mohammed ShamiRajasthan Royals Predicted XI: Ajinkya Rahane (c), Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (wk), Steven Smith, Rahul Tripathi, Ashton Turner, Krishnappa Gowtham, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Jaydev Unadkat, Dhawal KulkarniFantasy tips and suggestions: Chris Gayle and KL RahulIANSWicket-keeper: KL Rahul, who is now part of India’s World Cup squad is a man in form and should be included in the side ahead of Sanju Samson, who has blown hot and cold this season, as has been the case right through his career.Batsmen: Jos Buttler marches into this side and against an under-fire KXIP bowling attack, he can enjoy himself at the top of the order. Also, Chris Gayle, who has found his form again, will be key for KXIP and barring the threat posed by Dhawal Kulkarni, Gayle, can find his range in Mohali.Mayank Agarwal has looked all seasons, but has played only a couple of significant innings, and now is the time for him to step up and be more consistent. Also, Steve Smith, who is now part of Australia’s World Cup squad will want to play a couple of match-defining innings before he jets off to Australia.All-rounders: K Gowtham has had a rather mediocre season so far, but on the surface in Mohali, he can be a good pick. Also, Sam Curran, who has leaked runs after that hat-trick needs to be backed and included in the side as he might enjoy the evening conditions in Mohali.Spinners: R Ashwin might not be in India’s World Cup squad, but he certainly has been great for KXIP this season. He has to be in the side along with Shreyas Gopal, another impressive leggie this season. Both Gopal and Ashwin can contribute with the bat too and this should give extra points.Seamers: Jofra Archer is the only seamer who has been impressive from across both the sides, he is in the side. Also, Mohammed Shami, who has been fast and potent for KXIP, should get the nod.last_img read more

However, executives of some video services have complained of a power imbalance in their dealings with Amazon, with the e-commerce giant handling all of their customer relations. Some services may be wary that Apple will become another powerful middle-man. But with the exception of Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, few have said outright that they won’t be part of Apple’s service.Overall, analysts are widely optimistic ahead of Monday’s announcement. Needham & Company’s Laura Martin upgraded Apple from a “buy” to a “strong buy” recommendation this week, arguing that the launch of the video service could help the company to both extract more value from each customer, and also dramatically reduce churn. “Our calculations imply that services double the lifetime value per user,” Martin wrote in a note to investors.Wedbush Securities analyst Daniel Ives was equally optimistic, writing in a note to investors: “We believe Monday’s announcement is just the tip of the iceberg for Cook’s broader streaming content strategy to take hold and in our opinion adds a significant potential catalyst to the Apple services growth story for years to come.” Popular on Variety Among the high-profile shows ordered to series at Apple are:a Reese Witherspoon-Jennifer Aniston morning show drama;an Emily Dickinson half-hour series starring Hailee Steinfeld;dramas “Little Voices” and “My Glory Was I Had Such Friends” from executive producer J.J. Abrams, with the latter to star Jennifer Garner;drama “Are You Sleeping” starring Octavia Spencer;an adaptation of the book “Defending Jacob” starring and executive produced by Chris Evans; a based-on-a-true story CIA drama starring “Captain Marvel’s” Brie Larson;and a video-game development studio comedy from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s” Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day.And that’s just for starters. Nearly two years after Apple recruited former Sony TV presidents Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht, not a single frame of footage from any of Apple’s shows has been publicly released. One aspect of Apple’s subscription television product that has been confirmed is that the company will not only distribute its own shows but also seeks to be a gateway to selling third-party video subscription services like Starz and Showtime, for a healthy fee. It remains to be seen if AT&T’s HBO will be an Apple partner. Netflix disclosed last week that it will not be on the platform.This part of Apple’s video push is expected to closely mimic Amazon’s Channels business. The e-commerce giant has found success in subscription video with the help of established customer relationships: Amazon already has billing information for its customers on file, and is streaming HBO and Showtime through the same apps that consumers already use to access Amazon’s own content. Finally, Amazon has made it dead-simple to subscribe to new channels directly from its Fire TV devices, with nothing more than your TV remote.All of that has helped the company to turn Channels into the biggest marketplace for standalone video subscription services since its launch in late 2015, with The Diffusion Group estimating a year ago that Amazon was singlehandedly responsible for 55% of all standalone video subscriptions.last_img read more

Control native notifications in Chrome for Windows 10

first_imgControl native notifications in Chrome for Windows 10 by Martin Brinkmann on August 09, 2018 in Google Chrome – 9 commentsWindows 10 users who have upgraded the Chrome web browser to version 68 today or installed the browser anew today may have noticed that the new version of Google Chrome supports Windows 10’s notification system now natively.Google publishes release information on the Google Chrome Releases blog but those are quite useless for users interested in finding out about new or changed features in new releases.Windows 10 users may stumble upon the new feature by accident but it is not enabled for all users. You find information about the support and gradual roll outon Twitter where Google engineer Peter Beverloo posted the news.According to his information, about 50% of Windows 10 users have the feature enabled already at this point in time. Google plans to enable the feature for the remaining 50% in the near future so that it is supported for all Windows 10 users who use the browser.Native notifications on Windows 10 means that Chrome will display notifications in the lower right corner similarly to how other programs do it on Windows 10.Chrome’s implementation works with the operating system’s Quiet Hours / Focus Assist functionality. Focus Assist provides manual and automatic rules to turn off all or some notifications for a period of time.A right-click on the Action Center icon in the system tray area and the selection of Focus Assist displays manual options.The default state is off but you may switch it to priority only or alarms only. Priority only uses a list of priority applications to display only notifications by those for as long as it is activated. Alarms only hides all notifications but displays alarms still.You find additional options in the Settings application under Settings > System > Focus Assist to configure automatic rules.Automatic options include the following options:Enable Focus Assist during specific times of the day.When playing games.When duplicating the display.Manage Native Notifications in ChromeIf you prefer Chrome’s own way of displaying notifications you may disable the feature if it is enabled, or turn it on if it is not already.Load chrome://flags/#enable-native-notifications in the Chrome address bar.Select Enabled to turn the functionality on.Select Disabled to turn it off.Google plans to refresh Chrome’s own notification system soon and if you set the flag to disabled, Chrome will use it instead. Google has no plans to remove the notification system at this point in time.Now You: Browser notifications, yay or nay? (via Deskmodder)SummaryArticle NameControl native notifications in Chrome for Windows 10DescriptionWindows 10 users who have upgraded the Chrome web browser to version 68 today or installed the browser anew today may have noticed that the new version of Google Chrome supports Windows 10’s notification system now natively.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Participating HIE providers can access current and past diagnostic imaging exams to assist them in providing more effective diagnosis, care planning and delivery of healthcare services, taking advantage of a variety of tools within a zero-footprint viewing platform, the eHealthViewer ZF.“We are excited to be the first imaging center in Nevada to provide this service and its benefits to our care community,” said Don Shackley, chief information officer, Steinberg Diagnostic Medical Imaging Center. “Patients no longer need to retrieve and transport X-ray films or images on CDs from location to location, as reports are always accessible via the HIE. Patient records are more complete, which reduces the need for costly duplicate exams and unnecessary radiation exposure for patients, while improving the efficiency of delivering patient treatment.”“Having one of the largest providers of images in the state of Nevada take the lead on this initiative is a testament to the value eHealth Image Exchange provides,” said HealthInsight Executive Director Deborah Huber. “Ordering physicians can access reports and images immediately as they are available so that patients get more timely care with reduced risk due to incomplete medical records.”“When a patient presents, physicians need a variety of medical information quickly and easily to provide accurate, timely care,” said Gary Larson, chief operating officer and general manager, HIE services, eHGT. “Diagnostic quality images are an essential element of the patient record, and we are thrilled to provide this service to patients across Nevada, improving their care process and reducing the spiraling cost of care.”HealtHIE Nevada is powered by Optum HIE.
