Govt to Nissan No Frontier pickup really cant do that and you

by Jennifer C. Kerr, The Associated Press Posted Jan 23, 2014 10:10 am MDT Gov’t to Nissan: No, Frontier pickup really can’t do that, and you shouldn’t suggest it can AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WASHINGTON – Nissan went too far with a TV commercial that depicts its Frontier pickup truck powering up a sandy hill to save a struggling dune buggy, according to the Federal Trade Commission.In an announcement Thursday, the commission said Nissan has agreed to settle deceptive advertising charges over the 30-second ad. In it, a little black dune buggy can be seen stuck in sand on a steep hill. Suddenly, a red Frontier speeds to the rescue of the dune buggy and pushes it up and over the hill, to the cheers of amazed onlookers.The “Hill Climb” ad was shot in a realistic-looking YouTube style.And no, the Frontier pickup can’t really do that. In fact, the FTC complaint says both the truck and the buggy were dragged to the top of the hill by cables.In a statement, Nissan said it takes its commitment to truthful advertising seriously. “The company has been and remains committed to complying with the law,” said spokesman Travis Parman.Also named in the complaint is advertising agency TBWA Worldwide Inc. The FTC says both Nissan and TBWA are barred from making deceptive demonstrations in future ads.“Special effects in ads can be entertaining, but advertisers can’t use them to misrepresent what a product can do,” said Jessica Rich, head of the FTC’s consumer protection bureau.The ad did have a disclaimer that briefly flashed on the screen at the beginning — saying it was a “fictionalization” and that viewers should “not attempt.”But that didn’t work for the commission.“The disclosure that was on the screen was neither clear nor conspicuous,” said Matthew Gold, an FTC attorney in San Francisco. “Even if what was being portrayed was understood to be fictional, consumers could still believe that what was shown was an actual stunt instead of something achieved through special effects.”The proposed settlement does not prohibit the use of special effects, the commission said, as long as they don’t misrepresent the qualities or features of the pickup truck.The ad aired in late 2011. A more recent Nissan ad, for the automaker’s new Rogue SUV, has been the subject of a somewhat intense social media campaign.The ad shows a woman driving a Rogue, swerving and speeding up a ramp, launching the car into the air and then managing to land on the top of a train to avoid traffic and arrive at her destination early. It’s been airing frequently during NFL and college-football games, prompting complaints on Twitter and on the automaker’s Facebook page.The Rogue ad contains a disclaimer, “Fantasy, do not attempt. Cars can’t jump on trains.”The FTC would not say if it had received any complaints about Nissan’s Rogue commercial. read more

Giancarlo Stanton Will Need To Slug Like Barry Bonds To Beat Roger

Of course, maybe juiced balls are the equivalent of steroids for today’s batters, which would certainly boost Stanton’s odds. Either way, to get there, he’ll have to stay nearly as hot as he’s been in this recent streak over the entire rest of the year.Check out our latest MLB predictions. 1990Cecil FielderDET351651 Based on 72 hitters.

With yet another home run on Sunday (he’s homered in four straight games and nine times this month), Stanton now has 42 on the 2017 season — and 21 in his last 33 games. Just when it looked like Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees was going to usurp Stanton’s crown as the game’s top power hitter, Stanton has reclaimed it with a vengeance.Stanton’s season is already historic; only 11 times in the 162-game-schedule era1Since 1961. has a batter hit 42 or more home runs in his team’s first 116 ballgames. But Stanton can set his sights on another historic mark: the pre-steroids single-season home run record of 61, set by Roger Maris in 1961.Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa and Barry Bonds later surpassed Maris’s mark.2Bonds holds the current record with 73 home runs, set in 2001. But McGwire and Sosa either admitted to or tested positive for using performance-enhancing drugs, and Bonds was mentioned prominently in the Mitchell Report (which investigated the use of steroids in baseball), thus tainting their accomplishments in the eyes of many fans. So for Stanton, breaking Maris’s “record” would bring cachet even if it isn’t technically the record anymore.And by the numbers alone, Stanton — who needs 20 more home runs by the end of the season to best Maris — has an outside shot at the feat. For every batter who hit at least 35 homers in the first 116 games of a 162-game season,3This sample included 72 players. I recorded how many homers each managed over the rest of the season. About 11 percent managed to hit at least 20 more home runs. 2002Alex RodriguezTEX372057✓ 1999Mark McGwireSTL442165✓ So there’s a chance. But if you look at who did the homering over the rest of the season, Stanton’s odds might need to be adjusted downward more than a little. Of the eight hitter-seasons in our sample with 20 or more home runs between Game 116 and season’s end, all came in the steroid era, and only one — the great Ken Griffey Jr. — belonged to a player never associated with performance-enhancing drug use.

Sorry That Alien Skeleton Is Actually A Genetically Mutated Human

first_img No, the mysterious skeletal remains found more than a decade ago in a Chilean desert are not alien.The Atacama humanoid skeleton (“Ata”)—six inches long with an elongated cranium and accelerated bone age—is actually the remains of a newborn with multiple genetic mutations.Discovered 15 years ago in a ghost town in the Atacama Desert by Oscar Muñoz, the bony structure was later purchased by Spanish businessman Ramón Navia-Osorio, and ended up in a private collection in Barcelona.Featuring fewer-than-expected ribs and other skeletal deformities, Ata was believed by many to be an alien specimen, discarded in the South American sand.But analysis of its DNA revealed the being is actually of this world. In fact, Ata is a female of human origin, probably of Chilean descent, with signs of osteochondrodysplasia (also known as skeletal dysplasia).In 2013, Stanford University immunologist Garry Nolan proved that Ata was clearly human. But the question remained: What caused her odd skeletal structure?Nolan and his team sequenced the specimen’s DNA, revealing Ata to be anywhere between “mere decades” and 500 years old, as reported by Science magazine.Based on their analysis, the researchers uncovered some never-before-described mutations, but found that most occurred in genes previously implicated in bone disorders.Almost certainly a premature birth, Ata suffered a grab bag of mutations—and not the kind that earns you a place with the X-Men.“This specimen had the bad luck lottery,” Nolan told Science. “We all are born with multiple mutations, and that’s evolution, but sometimes the mutations all align badly.”Not everyone agrees, though.Geneticist Michael Briggs from Newcastle University claims it is “highly implausible” that this motley crew of deviations just happened to occur together.Briggs, who specializes in skeletal diseases, suggested instead that Ata’s oddities were caused by one or two variants. But without functional studies—for example in mouse models or tissue cultures—it’s hard to know which modifications were responsible.Draw your own conclusions from Nolan & Co.’s findings, published this week in the journal Genome Research.

Projected Crestline costs 22 million

first_img The overall cost of the Crestline Elementary School fire is projected to spiral to $22 million by September when a replacement school opens, officials with Evergreen Public Schools said Wednesday.The updated cost estimate followed Tuesday’s news that the Feb. 3, 2013, fire was human-caused and that law enforcement had identified a juvenile suspect in the case.Dylan Mork, 17, of Vancouver is scheduled to appear in Clark County Juvenile Court on May 21 on a charge of second-degree arson. The three-alarm early morning fire destroyed the school, at 13003 S.E. Seventh St., and displaced 500 students and 50 staff for the rest of last school year and all of this year.The $22 million estimate includes only Evergreen Public Schools’ costs; it doesn’t account for the cost of fighting the fire or fire investigators’ time.Of Evergreen’s total, $18 million is the cost to build a new school at the same site. That includes demolition, construction, parking lot, landscaping and furnishings. The school district estimates that other costs will reach $4 million, including temporary housing for last school year and the current school year, additional student transportation, staff changes and moving from temporary quarters to the new Crestline in August.

G4S staff to strike over pay dispute

first_imgG4S Patient Transport employees began a three-day strike today (Tuesday 22 November 2016) in an ongoing dispute over pay and conditions.The employees, who are members of the GMB union based at St George’s Hospital in Tooting, London, will strike until Thursday 24 November 2016, over their pay and conditions.The three-day action is a continuation of a one-day strike held on Tuesday 1 November 2016.GMB previously rejected an offer for a 2.6% pay increase from G4S and St George’s NHS Trust, stating that the deal failed to put employees on a level with other patient transport drivers in the area or with other NHS staff at St George’s Hospital.In response to the pay dispute, G4S has suspended both of GMB’s workplace representatives and attempted to negotiate directly with employees.Kieron Merrett, regional organiser at GMB, said: “G4S must now reinstate GMB’s workplace reps and come back to the negotiating table with a deal which ends the undervaluing of G4S workers at St George’s Hospital.“St George’s NHS Trust must not continue outsourcing vital services for patients to the lowest bidder, simply to allow pay and conditions and service quality to spiral. The G4S [employees] at St George’s Hospital are the only [staff] at St George’s who do not receive NHS pay and conditions. They are paid significantly less than other patient transport workers, including those employed by G4S in other local hospitals.“Like many NHS Trusts, St George’s is in significant financial difficulties. But it must not force the lowest-paid workers, or the most vulnerable patients, to bear the brunt of the NHS cuts.”John Shaw, managing director at G4S Public Services, said: “This additional strike action at St George’s Hospital further undermines the excellent work achieved by our otherwise dedicated team.“Despite an offer of a third wage increase in less than two years, it’s extremely disappointing that we find ourselves in a situation where patients could be affected through this action.”last_img read more

Gov Walker hasnt been actively campaigning for Begich and plans to take

first_imgGov. Bill Walker gets emotional addressing the resignation of his lieutenant governor during his address to the Alaska Federation of Natives at the Dena’ina Center in Anchorage on Oct. 18, 2018. (Photo by Zachariah Hughes/Alaska Public Media)Gov. Bill Walker said he hasn’t made plans to actively campaign for Mark Begich to succeed him.“At this point, we’ve just gotten through the announcement,” Walker said. “And I really haven’t. That really wasn’t part of any discussion or understanding.”Walker also said he’s going to take some time off after he finishes his term on Dec. 1.Listen nowWalker endorsed Democrat Mark Begich over Republican Mike Dunleavy and Libertarian Billy Toien. The latest polling figures by Alaska Survey Research said having Walker actively campaign for Begich wouldn’t help the Democrat.In any event, Walker said that last week was challenging on a personal level. That includes the decision to end his campaign.“Sometimes you find out who you are in your darkest hours,” Walker said. “And that was the dark hour. That was a decision was made literally an hour before I walked across the street to make the announcement. The final decision was made then. And it really was without any thought about, you know, what’s Bill Walker going to do after this? That’s inconsequential in comparison to what’s Alaska, you know, what’s Alaska going to look like over the next four years?”Neither former Lt. Gov. Byron Mallott nor Walker have provided much information about what Mallott said that caused him to resign on Oct. 16. Walker said he won’t say more without permission from the woman who was the recipient of what Walker has described as inappropriate remarks from Mallott.“Not without her blessing,” he said. “But I can say this: I’m not aware of any other instance. All the allegations that are being sort of made up by some that are more than happy to make things up are all inaccurate and wrong. It was a one-time situation (that) I’m aware of — it was very recent. It was an adult. … Once we learned of it, it was resolved within I think about 16 hours.”Walker said his administration has been transparent.Not everyone agrees, including Alaska Republican Party chairman Tuckerman Babcock.“I’m appalled that the lieutenant governor of the state of Alaska resigns from office and abandons a campaign three weeks before an election and … the only information that’s shared with the public is that he said something inappropriate to someone,” he said.Republicans also have questioned how Walker will spend his remaining campaign funds.Walker said he’ll largely use the money to pay outstanding campaign-related bills. He estimated the campaign spent 90 percent of what it raised.“You don’t want to end up on Election Day with a bunch of money in the bank, so there won’t be a big sum of money at the end, I’m sure,” he said.Walker’s name will remain on the ballot, because he ended his campaign after the deadline to withdraw. But he doesn’t expect many Alaskans to vote for him.“I don’t think that’s going to be the case,” Walker said of people voting for him. “I think we’ve done a good job of getting the word out. We didn’t just do a … a press release on a Friday and call it good. You know, we were very open and public about what we’ve done and why we did it. And I think people understand that.”Walker may be wrong about that. The Alaska Survey Research poll found 5 percent of voters said they’ll vote for him, even after being informed that he ended his campaign and endorsed Begich.Walker said he hasn’t focused on what comes next for him.“I need to cut some lumber, make some sawdust and, you know, go through sort of that process,” he said. “For me, that’s therapeutic for me to actually build things and I’d love to build another cabin.  And, you know, just kind of get out … away from all the phones and the … pressures that go with this position and give some thought. And I will always do something that’s going to be helpful to Alaska.Walker said his administration will continue to work on major projects like the gas pipeline for the five weeks it has remaining.last_img read more

Houston Sees Continued Reduction In Homeless Population

first_imgListen Share X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: The point-in-time count and survey is done on one day — it’s a snapshot. Volunteers conduct interviews to learn more about the degrees of mental illness and substance abuse. This year’s count shows a 20 percent decrease in the number of unsheltered, chronically homeless individuals since last year. Yet we still see many people living on the streets. Marilyn Brown is with the Coalition for the Homeless. “As more and more development happens, there’s fewer and fewer places for people to congregate. We’re seeing larger groups of people in fewer places. Our newly-homeless single adult — that’s really where we’re seeing perhaps more of a visual.”   Brown says we need to learn more about that kind of homeless person — whether they’re victims of job loss, and whether they may not want to or know how to go into shelters. Over 100 partners help provide permanent housing solutions and support services. “Some of our partners are housing developers or builders. We are really depending on apartment owners and property managers to open some of their units.”   Harris and Fort Bend counties have more than twice as many homeless individuals living in shelters than on the street. That brings it to a total of 3,412 in this year’s count. 00:00 /01:17 last_img read more

Oculus Rift is finally a virtual reality

first_imgThe Oculus Rift is here. Well, it’s going to be here in Q1 of 2016.Some could argue that it’s been here for quite some time now. But most of us have only experienced its potential and powerful effects through niche developer demos and PewDiePie videos. For a while it’s been a thing of early adopters and enthusiasts. This announcement, though, has moved it into the consumer space, making it accessible to everyone.So, what are the bullet-points? How much does it cost? What are its improvements? Well, here’s what we know so far.OK, so, right off the bat we still don’t know the price. But Brendan Iribe, CEO of Oculus, has been quoted, saying that the Rift experience is worth $1,500. It won’t actually cost that much at launch because he was including the price of a PC required to run it.The announcement showed a more refined Rift than what most of us are used to. The consumer version of the Oculus Rift has had some major hardware updates, including a built-in, removable headset for full immersion. There’s also a more ergonomic design that the company states it has “been refining it over the last few years.” The architecture of the straps seem to offer more balance, so all of the weight isn’t sitting right on your scalp. As for how many pounds you’ll be strapping to your skull, nothing official has been published, yet, but Iribe did exclaim in the announcement, “It’s light! You can hold it in one hand.”Improvements have been made to the interior. There’s a mechanism that will allow users to adjust the distance between the lenses. Also, those of us who suffer visual impairments will be happy to hear Oculus has left some room for adjustment to accommodate glasses.Those choosing to buy one will also get a few additional pieces in their Rift package, including a wireless Xbox One controller. Indeed, most certainly the better gamepad of the two next-gen consoles (and this is coming from a proud PS4 owner).In addition, Oculus has gone out of it’s way to design a new kind of controller called the Oculus Touch. They explain that the team “[wanted] an input device that lets you reach out and interact with objects in VR naturally.” Each controller has a traditional analog thumbstick, trigger, and two buttons. The controllers use an IR LED constellation tracking system—the same one as the Rift. The Oculus Touch will also ship around the same time as the Rift, in the first half of 2016.So, what of software support?There’s nothing worse than seeing a piece of innovative hardware launch without one game to its name, which is why it’s so nice to hear there are three made-for-VR games for the Rift. EVE: Valkyrie from CCP Games, Chronos from Gunfire Games, and Edge of Nowhere from Insomniac Games will be playable on the E3 showroom floor.To add to the VR-developer initiative, Oculus said during their announcement that the company will be “investing more than $10,000,000 in accelerating and supporting them.”Here’s hoping the Oculus helps to make VR a part of the living room.

first_img Demand for ultrasound scans at U.S. outpatient centers could grow by double digits over the next five years, according to a speaker at AHRA 2019. A variety of factors, however, could cause projections for this and other modalities to change. Graphic courtesy of Pixabay September 14, 2011 – The Delaware Insurance Commissioner’s announcement that Blue Cross Blue Shield of Delaware (BCBSD) will support physicians’ use of an American College of Cardiology (ACC) program to make decisions about certain diagnostic imaging tests is a win for patients and a win for quality-of-care, said ACC CEO Jack Lewin, M.D.Commissioner Karen Weldin Stewart on Tuesday announced an agreement with BCBSD that the company will pay for Delaware physicians to participate in the ACC’s online appropriate-use criteria-based program, FOCUS: Cardiovascular Imaging Strategies. The program supports physician decision-making and the use of best practices for decisions regarding cardiovascular diagnostic imaging. The agreement followed a state review of patient complaints about practices related to pre-authorization for nuclear cardiac imaging tests and concerns raised in the report about differences in criteria used by physician and insurers for nuclear cardiac imaging tests.“In order to solve this problem, we need to get everyone on the same page as to when the studies are appropriate,” Stewart said in announcing the agreement. “With this new program, BCBSD is using the best criteria developed by the expert physicians, the American College of Cardiology, and will pay to have Delaware physicians using the best medical criteria.”  FOCUS uses a computer-based tool developed by the ACC to help guide physicians when ordering imaging tests.  The tool applies nationally accepted, transparent and physician-developed appropriate use criteria to guide ordering of nuclear cardiac imaging tests. FOCUS allows local physicians to consistently apply appropriate use criteria to determine when patient tests are needed.  Importantly, the program provides feedback reports on the patterns of appropriate use to physician practices and health plans.  FOCUS participants then use the reports to complete action plans and share best practices.“This decision is a win for patients and a win for evidence-based medicine,” Lewin said. “Commissioner Stewart and her staff should be commended for providing a solution that is based on physician-developed appropriate use criteria. This type of approach results in better care for patients and can ultimately save money. We hope Delaware will be a model for managing medical costs by focusing on patient-centered decision making and quality care.”For more information: www.cardiosource.org/focus Body language expert Traci Brown spoke at the AHRA 2019 meeting on how to identify when a person is not being honest by their body language.

Oslo university admits mass killer Breivik to study program

Breivik also claimed to be part of a secretive, non-existent network of “Knights Templar.”He set off a car bomb explosion that ripped open buildings in the heart of Norway’s government quarter in Oslo, then went to a summer camp dressed as a police officer and gunned down youths as they ran and swam for their lives.Breivik’s lawyer was not immediately available for comment on the development.Copyright © The Associated Press.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Convicted mass killer Anders Behring Breivik has been admitted to the University of Oslo’s political science program, although he will stay in his cell to study, the university’s rector said Friday.The 36-year-old right-wing extremist is serving 21 years in prison for killing 77 people in politically motivated bomb-and-gun massacres in 2011. The sentence can be extended when it expires. Top Stories Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Comments   Share   5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes Sponsored Stories 3 international destinations to visit in 2019 “All inmates in Norwegian prisons are entitled to higher education in Norway if they meet the admission requirements,” university rector Ole Petter Ottersen said Friday in an email to The Associated Press.Breivik’s application was rejected two years ago after the university said his qualifications were insufficient. That submission stirred a debate in Norway over whether someone convicted of such a horrific crime should be considered for higher education.Norway has a rehabilitation-focused justice system aimed at helping inmates prepare for life after they get out, which includes giving them the right to pursue higher education. Before the 2011 attacks, Breivik attended high schools in Norway and took online course in small business management. But he had not completed secondary education, which he has been working on since his 2012 conviction.“He then didn’t meet the admission requirements. Now his grades live up to what is expected,” university spokeswoman Marina Tofting said.Breivik will begin the university program in August. Prison regulations will prevent him from going to the Oslo campus, attending classes, accessing digital learning resources or having any contact with students or university staff, Ottersen said.

in 1992 due to melting ice from both mountain glaciers and the polar ice caps as well as warmer oceans The data was collected from NASA satellites NASA also released a video that shows a visualization of rising sea levels The changes are concerning and “it’s very likely to get worse in the future” Steve Nerem a University of Colorado geophysicist and a member of the panel said in a conference call Reuters reported In 2013 a United Nations panel reported sea levels were projected to rise between 1 and 3 feet by 2100; the NASA panel said data indicates the level rise would be on the higher end of that projection The sea level change is an average; in some areas sea levels rose more than 9 inches and in otherssuch as along the West Coast sea levels are falling Scientists warn that we haven’t seen the worst of it yet; ocean currents and weather cycles have actually offset some sea level changes in the Pacific which means the West Coast could see a huge jump in sea levels in the next 20
