(Colombo Gazette) Former Minister Ravi Karunanayake complained to Parliament today saying a drone had been used to video his house in Kotte, which is located near Parliament.Karunanayake said that his security officers had detained an individual identified as D.M Lahiru who operated the drone claiming he was from a television station.

How Biosensors Are Being Used To Treat Prostate Cancer

first_img Sexy Robots Help Cure Erectile DysfunctionApple, Samsung Join FDA’s Digital Health Software Program Stay on target Like most geeks, our perceptions of futuristic medical technology were heavily shaped by Star Trek. The image of Bones waving his tricorder in front of some poor redshirt afflicted with an alien plague gave us the fantasy of a non-invasive form of treatment without all those icky fluids and needles.While we’re not quite there yet, the world of medical science is advancing in crazy ways right now. One of the coolest things on the market is the harnessing of the natural world into technology. Instead of making machines from wafers of silicon and wire, we’re creating unique organisms that can serve humanity. Enter the biosensor.Magic InkEssentially, what these things do is take a synthetic biological element – that can be tissue, enzymes, cell receptors, you name it – and bind them to a mechanically engineered component. The biological element reacts to the thing you’re trying to measure in the human body and the other piece translates it into a form we can understand. It’s truly the best of both worlds.MIT and Harvard recently worked together to develop a biosensor tattoo that can detect blood glucose levels in type 1 diabetics. Glucose is a pretty easily measurable substance, but this opens the door to more subtle and unusual tests. Imagine having all of your body’s vitals displayed on your skin like a living display so you can monitor your mental and physical state in real time.One of the most promising directions that biosensors can help in is in cancer detection and treatment. The single most important factor in cancer patients across all types of the disease is how early it’s detected. Given time, it’s more likely to metastasize to other parts of the body. Catching it at its point of origin makes surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy significantly more successful.The Walnut Of LifeFor men, prostate cancer is one of the scariest forms of the disease. The prostate is a walnut-sized gland that sits below the bladder and produces the fluid that your sperm swim around in. It’s an important organ but hard to monitor due to its position.Cancer of the prostate is the second most common cancer in men (after only the skin). One in seven men will be diagnosed with it during their lifetime. Unfortunately, the testing process has traditionally been significantly invasive, requiring rectal exams and blood tests. Rectal exams are typically done with a gloved finger and aren’t 100% effective, being dependent on the doctor’s sense of touch. Blood tests are better, but an enlarged prostate for other reasons can give false positives. The final step is usually a combination of a biopsy and an ultrasound. Most doctors don’t advise even having that discussion until the age of 50 unless the patient has a family history of the disease or is of African descent (a population which for some reason seems vulnerable earlier).In The BloodThe presence of the EN2 protein in the urine can be a sign of prostate cancer, but the most reliable way to spot it early is a blood test for prostate-specific antigen (PSA). Previously, this required a visit to the doctor that could be expensive and time-consuming. The blood in your body is a complex ecosystem host to hundreds of different chemicals and proteins in varying quantities, and PSA only shows up in a fraction of it.One recent experiment from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne looked to simplify that process using biosensors with custom-coded DNA. The prostate cancer test involved a silicon nanowire coated with engineered DNA that trapped only the biomarkers that indicate the presence of the disease. The nanowire has to be placed in a blood sample for an hour to give it enough time to accrete molecules, then it’s dried and an electrical current is run through it. The resistance on that current can be translated into the density of PSA. Sure, the response time isn’t great, but it’s significantly faster and potentially more cost-effective than existing tests.A lab at Rutgers is working on a technology that could lead to a “lab on a chip” that uses synthesized biomarkers to detect a wide variety of things. One of the potential uses mentioned by the doctors responsible is the creation of a portable PSA test kit that could be used at home with a small blood draw, like the kind from a fingerprick glucose kit.Nature’s BiosensorInterestingly enough, nature has actually developed its own biosensor for cancer – a dog’s nose. We all know that the sense of smell in a canine is several orders of magnitude higher than a human’s, but scientists are starting to learn that they can use that trait for more than finding weed in people’s carry-on luggage. Trained dogs have a 95% success rate in sensing prostate cancer. In addition to having significantly more smell sensors, dogs are also equipped with something called a Jacobson’s organ, which runs a separate, parallel system of molecule recognition for substances that have no detectable odor.That kind of molecular sensing and filtering is exactly what manufactured biosensors are trying to accomplish – taking the delicate biological detection mechanisms that evolution has had tens of thousands of years to develop and turning them into precision analytic devices. Couple this with new treatment modalities like Zytiga (a recently-unveiled drug from Johnson & Johnson that works on advanced prostate cancer that has proven resistant to other methods) and you have a more positive prognosis than ever before.While we’re still a ways off from the Tricorder, being able to screen for diseases with a finger prick is a lot easier than heading to the clinic and having your blood drawn. And as biosensors become more subtle and specialized, it won’t be long before new and different ways of deploying them become common practice. Like the tattoo that displays your blood glucose, it’s feasible that at birth infants will be outfitted with a whole panel of skin sensors for their health, sending visible warnings about cancer and a host of other diseases.last_img read more

Super Meat Boy is Still King of the Brutal Platformers on Nintendo

first_img If you have a Nintendo Switch, chances are you also have The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The new Zelda is a massive, phenomenal game that you can and should play for dozens of hours. But eventually, you’re going to want to play something new on your Nintendo console/handheld hybrid. Switch Games That Aren’t Zelda is a new column highlighting cool, smaller Switch games to check out once you’ve saved Hyrule.Ever since Super Meat Boy first launched in 2010, we in the gaming press have spent a lot of time measuring other games up against it. There had been previous 2D platformers that emphasized fast and tight controls in short but punishing levels. But now if any indie developers make a game even remotely similar to that, you better believe Meat Boy is going to get mentioned.Super Meat Boy earned its place a “masocore” gaming yardstick, and not just because the developers left a touching impression in Indie Game: The Movie. Super Meat Boy is just a fantastic video game, and I (along with lots of other folks if the initial sales are correct) recently had the pleasure of remembering that by playing Super Meat Boy on Nintendo Switch.AdChoices广告If you’ve gone this long without knowing, Super Meat Boy is a 2D platformer made of bite-sized levels that take seconds to complete but only once you overcome their ludicrously high skill curves. Fortunately, unlike a game like Dark Souls, Super Meat Boy doesn’t use its difficulty to waste your time. It’s the opposite in fact.Super Meat Boy values smooth immediacy above all else. Its controls and physics are so pitch-perfect you can, and have to, pull off incredibly nimble movements with ease on the ground and in the air. Jump off walls. Avoid dropping buzzsaws. Hop through waterfalls of salt. Rescue your girlfriend Bandage Girl time and time again. You’ll die. A lot. But that’s okay because you’ll be thrown back into the fracas before you have time to dwell on it. Be like Meat Boy and smile through your broken teeth. Plus, once you finally complete a mission you can watch a replay of all your past lives trying and failing at once, making your ultimate satisfaction that much sweeter.Once you get good enough, Super Meat Boy’s levels take no time at all, even the boss fights. Good thing there are so many of them, from the standard levels you can play in any order across a world to the hidden glitch and dark side levels that draw aesthetic inspiration from other video games. Also drawn from other video games are guest indie characters like Bit.Trip’s commander video and the heroine of Mighty Jill Off. Spiteful PETA parody “Super Tofu Boy” is still PC-exclusive.Super Meat Boy’s gameplay may have aged like fine bloody wine but I will say the visuals look more dated than I would’ve expected. I love that Super Meat Boy comes from the flat Flash gaming tradition of Newgrounds, but it’s just not as detailed as the art in later Edmund McMillen games like The Binding of Isaac and The End is Nigh. However, I do prefer Meat Boy’s less gross and scatological T-rated look compared to those M-rated games, which is weird to say considering it stars a boy with no skin fighting a fetus in a jar.Like other recent Meat Boy re-releases, this Switch version unfortunately has the inferior new music. I should also note that Edmund McMillen is no longer part of Team Meat, which is now Tommy Refenes and his collaborators.Beyond being a perfect portable game with its short addictive levels, Super Meat Boy is worth playing again a Switch because of its new features. In Race Mode, two players compete to see who can finish the most levels the fastest. Add in some random elements and this mode can test even hardened Super Meat Boy veterans. And since Super Meat Boy was first designed as a downloadable Wii game before drama over file size limits, playing the game on a Nintendo system brings things full circle in a nice way.Now that the original Super Meat Boy is on Nintendo Switch, I’ve suddenly become much less interested in playing the imitators. Even the upcoming somewhat procedurally generated, somewhat endless runner, somewhat questionable sequel Super Meat Boy Forever doesn’t appeal as much to me now, despite its superior art. Super Meat Boy is part of the Video Game Canon, and no matter what platform you pick it up for, you owe it to yourself to play it.Buy it now!Super Mario OdysseyThe Legend of Zelda: Breath of the WildNintendo SwitchProtect Your Nintendo Switch With These Awesome CasesLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

That was the message of those marching in the streets of Downtown, San Diego who were supporting more affordable housing at the cost of increased property taxes.The advocacy group San Diego Housing Federation is calling on city leaders to put a bond measure on the 2020 ballot, a property tax that would raise both commercial and residential holdings by an addition 17 to 19 cents per $1,000 of assessed value.Councilmember Chris Ward says, “if you have a $500,000 home, that might mean about a $90 impact per year on your property tax bill.” He continued, “What this bond measure will do is, lock box and dedicate it (the funds) for housing development.”KUSI’s Sasha Foo is in Downtown with more on the story.

On April 9, the browser-based multimedia platform will be discontinued and the Shockwave player for Windows won’t be available for download.”As technologies evolve and the use of mobile devices has grown, interactive content has moved to platforms such as HTML5 Canvas and Web GL and usage of Shockwave has declined,” Adobe wrote on its help page. The help page was earlier spotted by Ghacks.Shutting down Shockwave, which was used for things like interactive applications and video games, has been a multiyear process, the company said. Adobe Director, a tool for creating Shockwave content, and the Shockwave player for MacOS were both discontinued in 2017. The company said Creative Cloud would be the best replacement. This comes after Adobe announced in 2017 that it’ll stop developing and distributing Flash at the end of 2020.

No one injured after one vessel sinks three beached in big overnight

first_imgThe fishing vessel Bunchie was one of several ran into serious problems early Monday morning in the Nushagak District. Pictured here, the Bunchie had been towed near the beach but was still submerged during high water. (Alaska Dept. of Fish and Game)At least four fishing vessels appear to have had major problems from Sunday night to Monday morning in Bristol Bay’s Nushagak District. One, the fishing vessel N-11, capsized and sank after “deck-loading” a big catch of sockeye.Listen nowAccording to the U.S. Coast Guard, the good samaritan vessel Run Out recovered all four crew members safely.After 2 a.m. Monday, the F/V Bunchie began taking on water just below Ekuk. The good samaritan vessel Anne Louise took the Bunchie’s four crew members aboard and towed the Bunchie to the beach, said the Coast Guard.The Alaska Department of Fish and Game reports perhaps three other vessels were beached, likely to prevent boats from sinking under the weight of too many fish. Those vessels include the Ketok on Ekuk Beach and the Ora near Clark’s Point.State staff flew an aerial survey Monday to assess for possible spilled fuels, but reported nothing major was seen. The owners of the vessels were taking steps to appropriately pump off fuel and oil and dispose of wasted salmon, according to Fish and Game.A week ago the Nushagak District set a record for a single-day harvest, landing more than a million sockeye. The run dropped off for several days, but the anecdotal reports into ADF&G and KDLG Monday are that there were huge deliveries being made. Two processors had to stop buying fish for part of the day Monday. The full tally of catch and escapement from Sunday to Monday’s fishing will be published Tuesday morning.last_img read more

Dubai to host Global Airport Leaders Forum

10 Cities Where Are Homes Selling Fastest

first_img May 4, 2016 511 Views in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, Market Studies, News  There are two occurrences happening simultaneously in the market: some of the hottest housing markets may be slowing down, while those that have been slow to rebound are finally heating up.Trulia’s Fastest Moving Markets Report found that some of the hottest markets on the “Costly Coasts” may be slowing down while slow-to-rebound markets in the “Bargain Belt” are heating up despite the issue of declining inventory and worsening affordability.According to the report, home are selling faster than they were last year with the largest jump observed among trade-up homes.Nationally, 66.6 percent of homes listed for sale on March 6 were still on the market on April 6, down from 67.8 percent for the same period last year.However, Trulia noted that “not all segments of the market move alike: fluctuations in inventory–which affects the time that homes stay on the market–can behave quite differently within different price points (starter, trade-up homes, etc.”The troubling news for first-time homebuyers is that the pace of starter and trade-up home sales is much faster this year compared to premium homes.Trulia said that 65.5 percent of starter homes were still on the market after a month last year, compared with 63.4 percent this year, while trade-up homes went from 62.9 percent on the market last yer to 59.8 percent this year. Premium homes have not moved much at all, rising 71.5 percent from 71.8 percent”Much of this is likely due to the fact over the past few years, inventory of both starter and trade-up homes have fallen much more than premium homes,” Trulia said. “However, the national trend hides big differences from one local market to another. In some metros, the sales pace is quickening, while slowing in others.”Trulia’s Top 10 Fastest-Moving Housing Markets in AmericaSan Jose, CaliforniaOakland, CaliforniaSan Francisco, CaliforniaSeattle, WashingtonPortland, OregonTacoma, WashingtonColorado Spring, ColoradoDenver, ColoradoDallas, TexasSalt Lake City, UtahTrulia’s Top 10 Slowest-Moving Housing Markets in America Compared to a Year AgoHousing, TexasSan Francisco, CaliforniaNorth Port-Sarasota-Bradenton, FloridaMadison, WisconsinMiami, FloridaPhoenix, ArizonaCape Coral-Fort Myers, FloridaOakland, CaliforniaSacramento, CaliforniaFort Lauderdale, Florida”All and all, this offers both good news and bad news for homebuyers. Homes are moving off the market slightly faster this year than last at the national level, but there are dramatic differences across individual markets,” Trulia said. “Home hunters East of Mississippi can still take their time but will need to move slightly faster than they did last year. Meanwhile those in the West won’t need to move as frantically as they did last year, but they will still need to move quick to get their dream home.” Sharecenter_img 10 Cities Where Are Homes Selling Fastest Affordability homes Housing Market Inventory Trulia 2016-05-04 Staff Writerlast_img read more
