Elatec: enable user authentication and access control for devices lacking a USB port

first_imgElatec introduced the TCP3 authentication / release station, a small network appliance that enables devices without a USB port to incorporate an RFID or biometric reader, PIN pad or other form of user authentication and access control, and which supports USB 3.0 and gigabit Ethernet networks.Most organizations extend the use of their employee ID badge or card to authenticate for applications beyond building access. This includes most multi-function printers. However, not all printers and devices have support for the direct connection of a card reader, such as those with no USB port. In these situations, the Elatec TCP3 station extends ID card-based capabilities such as authentication for pull printing to any printing device regardless of the manufacturer, make or model.The TCP3 station was designed to minimize information technology support costs associated with additional IP or MAC addresses while consuming only one network drop from its Host port. TCP3 has two Ethernet connectors designated as Host and Device. The Device port enables connection of a printer or other peripheral without requiring a second network drop.While primarily designed for the secure printing market, the station can also be used to control access to devices which require special operator training and certification such as sophisticated manufacturing equipment. The TCP3 station would communicate ID card data to the authenticator responsible to unlock such equipment.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components Continue Reading Previous Bumps in the road to AV safetyNext Silicon Labs enhances Si479xx automotive tuner family with SDR technologylast_img read more

Indonesia Shows Interest in Moroccos Phosphates as Chinas Share Slows

Rabat- “The Republic of Indonesia is interested in investing  in Moroccan phosphate to meet its national demand for fertilizer,” said Indonesian Deputy Foreign Minister Abdurrahman Mohammad Fachir.Indonesia is interested in Moroccan products, including phosphate that “will allow us to meet the national demand for fertilizer,” said Fachir, reported Indonesian newspaper Jakarta Globe.The South Asian  country’s interest in Moroccan phosphate comes as China sees its production slow. Although China will continue to dominate the industry globally, it will see an unspecified portion its market share lost to Morocco due to the Kingdom’s “strong pipeline of projects and the largest global reserve,” said a recent report by BMI Research.According to the report, “Forecasts from the International Fertiliser Industry Association (IFA) suggest that phosphate rock and phosphoric acid production will grow by about 10 percent and 12 percent respectively between 2016 and 2021, with large capacity additions in Morocco and Saudi Arabia.”Morocco currently account for 73.5 percent of the world’s 68 billion tonne total phosphate reserves. The report adds that the “IFA claims that between 2017 and 2021 the fertiliser industry will invest close to USD110bn in more than 65 new production units of phosphate, potash and nitrogen, increasing global capacity by 90 million tonnes of products.”Over this same period, BMI predicts that China will continue to lose ground due to “unprofitable operations and more stringent environmental regulations consolidating the industry.Phosphate production in Morocco accounts for 90 percent of the domestic mining industry activity. The kingdom possesses over 50 billion tonnes in proven phosphate reserves, with only 30 percent of the country having been surveyed. Consequently, the report highlights there is room for enormous potential.The largest player in the game is Office Cherifien Des Phosphates (OCP). It owns three main Phosphate rock deposits, in at Khouribga, Ghantour and Boucraa. The Khouribga site is the biggest producer, offering 18 billion tonnes per year.In March, OCP announced a USD 370 million investment to develop the world’s largest phosphate pre-treatment plant at Oulad Fares. In addition to this, OCP announced it would use USD 1.8 billion to finance two new projects in the Beni-Mellal-Khenifra region. The result of these projects is expected to represent an increase in production at Khouribga, causing an output of 38 million tonnes by 2025. read more

Chinese ecommerce giant Alibaba buys Hong Kong newspaper South China Morning Post

Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba buys Hong Kong newspaper South China Morning Post HONG KONG – Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba said Friday it’s buying Hong Kong’s leading English-language newspaper, the South China Morning Post, as part of a plan to create a global platform for news about China.Alibaba Group Holdings Ltd., founded by billionaire Jack Ma, said it signed a deal with publisher SCMP Group to buy the Post and the company’s other media assets, which include magazines, outdoor advertising and digital media.The newspaper said in a story on its website that the purchase price is not being disclosed.The acquisition gives control of the Asian financial centre’s most prominent English-language publication to a mainland Chinese company. As news emerged over the past few weeks that the two parties were in talks, there were fears that the newspaper’s reporting would be softened under new owners.In a statement, Alibaba Executive Vice Chairman Joe Tsai dismissed worries that the editorial independence would be compromised.“In reporting the news, the SCMP will be objective, accurate and fair,” said.The Post has a wide international following for its China coverage, including reporting on the 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown and extensive coverage of last year’s pro-democracy street protests in Hong Kong. The newspaper has won awards for its coverage of political scandals and human rights in China, topics that are off-limits to mainland media.The Post and other news media in the former British colony have more freedom to report because the city has a mini-constitution that guarantees freedom of the press and other civil liberties not seen on the mainland. However, there’s widespread concern that press freedom is shrinking as Beijing, which took control of Hong Kong in 1997, tightens its grip on the city.The 112-year-old Post was once reputed to be the world’s most profitable newspaper on a per-reader basis although its fortunes have suffered in line with the wider decline in the traditional newsprint industry as readers shift to online news sites.Its influence has also been overtaken by Chinese dailies since Beijing took control of the city from Britain in 1997, although it still retains an important position among the city’s English-speaking elite.“Why is Alibaba buying into traditional media, considered by some a sunset industry? The simple answer is that we don’t see it that way,” Tsai said as he outlined a lofty vision of marrying Alibaba’s experience in technology with the Post’s journalism track record to create a China-focused media giant with an international audience.As part of its goal to broaden its readership, the company plans to stop charging for access to the Post’s website, SCMP.com, Tsai said.“Our vision is to expand the SCMP’s readership globally through digital distribution and easier access to content,” he said.The newspaper’s magazine division has a license to publish the local Chinese-language editions of Cosmopolitan and Harper’s Bazaar. It also has a stake in the Bangkok Post newspaper. It took its first step into e-commerce in October by buying a majority stake in fashion site MyDress.com.The newspaper’s current owner, Malaysian sugar tycoon Robert Kuok, bought it through his Kerry Group from media mogul Rupert Murdoch in 1993.SCMP Group’s net profit has declined for the past four years, falling last year to 137 million Hong Kong dollars ($17.7 million) on HK$1.2 billion in revenue, according to its latest annual report. Its stock has been suspended from trading on Hong Kong’s stock market since February 2013, when the number of shares freely traded by the public fell below the exchange’s minimum requirement.___Follow Kelvin Chan on Twitter at twitter.com/chanman In this Monday, Feb. 2, 2015 photo, Alibaba Group Executive Chairman Jack Ma speaks to the media after a speech on “Transforming Dreams into Successful Business” in Hong Kong.

Prince Andrew called in to exert golf diplomacy over Trump state visit

The Duke of York is being used as a secret weapon by Buckingham Palace in the belief he will be able to defuse any potential diplomatic disasters during the state visit of Donald Trump. In what has been dubbed “golf course diplomacy”, British officials have taken the unusual step of ensuring Prince Andrew is alongside the American president for two out of the three days he will be in the country. It is hoped the men’s shared passions for business, but more importantly their mutual love for the game of golf will help them bond allowing the prince to exert a subtle influence over the politician. The pair met nearly 20 years ago when Prince Andrew visited Mr Trump and his then girlfriend, Melania…

Logitech starts offering stickon joystick for iPad

first_imgA game developer targeting the iPad or iPhone has to come up with a control scheme that works on a touchscreen. Anything else would be just plain lunacy. However, even with a good touchscreen input method, some games do just work better with a joystick.ThinkGeek was the first to respond to the desire for a physical joystick on the iPad and iPhone screen with the introduction of the JOYSTICK-IT. At $24.99 it was an expensive peripheral for making games like Pac-Man a little nicer to control, but it certainly looked the part as the video below demonstrates:Now ThinkGeek has got some competition from that well-known peripheral manufacturer Logitech.The Logitech Joystick for iPad works a little differently from the JOYSTCIK-IT as the suction cups holding it in place attach to the iPad frame rather than the main display area. The joystick is also smaller with a recessed top to stop your thumb sliding off.While it certainly doesn’t look as authentic and retro as ThinkGeek’s offering, it’s certainly more minimalistic, and it’s also $5 cheaper at $19.99. However, ThinkGeek matches on price if you buy two JOYSTICK-IT’s for $39.99.Here’s a video of the Logitech Joystick for iPad in action.One of the advantages of using a portable device to play games is it has everything you need to play out the box. Adding peripherals just means another thing to carry. Sure, these joysticks are small, but that also means they are easy to lose.Is a joystick worth keeping in your pocket, or is the touchscreen good enough for everything you play?Read more at Logitech, via Engadgetlast_img read more

Simon Harris stands over his decision to offer repeat smear tests despite

first_imgMy inbox was full of constituents asking for a repeat smear.He said that originally, it was expected that the Scally Report was to be published in June, a month after the offer of free repeat smears was made, but due to the comprehensiveness of the report it wasn’t published until September.I’ve 110,000 reasons that this was the right thing to do because 110,000 women visited their GPs in relation to this, but only 57,000 opted for a repeat smear test. 49 Comments Updated Apr 10th 2019, 6:27 PM MINISTER FOR HEALTH Simon Harris has told the Oireachtas Health Committee that he stands over his decision to offer repeat smear tests, but significantly regrets that women are waiting for their smear test results because of a backlog-caused delay. Speaking to the panel of TDs this morning on the issue of allocation of estimated spending in the health care system, Harris fielded questions in relation to the National Children’s Hospital and CervicalCheck.Harris said that he worked “hand-in-glove” with the Chief Medical Officer Tony Holohan on this issue. He said that the conclusion was that “this was an appropriate thing to do, in cases where a GP believed it needed to be done”.“There was no difference in opinion between me, my Chief Medical Officer, or my Department of Health officials,” he told the Committee. Share301 Tweet Email1 Wednesday 10 Apr 2019, 6:27 PM 17,408 Views https://jrnl.ie/4584807 By Gráinne Ní Aodha Image: Oireachtas TV In his opening statement, Harris said in relation to the National Children’s Hospital that “an additional €99m is required” for the hospital in 2019.The government decided that €24m of this additional funding will be provided from within the €667m allocation with the balance of €75m to be met by rescheduling capital allocations in other departments.Harris also said that he would be strengthening the board of the National Children’s Hospital, and that his understanding is that he has the legal advice to do so.He said that he took responsibility for the National Children’s Hospital overspend, and the fact that he appointed the board, but that it should be acknowledged that the information the government were given was incorrect.It is clear that when you look at the NCH project… but fundamentally the information we were given was wrong. PwC, the firm tasked with reviewing the hospital overspend, has come down on the side “that there wasn’t a waste of public money, but that incorrect estimations were given”, Harris told the committee today.He also told the committee that he would be pushing for free GP care to be extended from under 4 year olds to under 8 year olds next year.With reporting from Cormac Fitzgerald and Christina Finn Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Simon Harris stands over his decision to offer repeat smear tests, despite being warned about delays The Health Minister staunchly defended his decision to offer free repeat smears last year. I’ve made mistakes in relation to CervicalCheck… this was not one of them. He said that whether the repeat smear was made available for free or not, women would have sought an additional free smear test anyway. He said that it was almost impossible to estimate how many women would take up the offer of a free smear test.LetterA letter was also supplied to the committee today which showed that the Head of Screening at the National Screening Service Charles O’Hanlon wrote to a senior official in Department of Health less than an hour after Harris offered the free repeat smear tests. The tests were offered by Harris on 28 April last year. On that same day, O’Hanlon wrote to Michael Conroy – a Principal Officer for cancer control policy – making aware the risks of Harris’ approach. These risks included the unknown number of people who might avail of the service; the fact that it could undermine the current programme; and the certain increase it would cause in laboratory turnaround times, among others.O’Hanlon said the move would lead to “increased dis-satisfaction with the programme and increased anxiety for clients”.Commenting today, Fianna Fáil’s health spokesperson Stephen Donnelly said that the letter along with verbal warnings given to Harris created a picture of a government “that was ignoring the medical advice given to them”. “I have one simple question: “why did the Health Minister not listen to the experts when it came to the CervicalCheck scandal?” He said. Smear tests processedThere are just under 80,000 smear tests being processed at the moment due to a surge in uptake of the free smear test offer as part of the CervicalCheck programme; the committee was told on a previous day that two-thirds of that number were caused by the offer of a free repeat smear test made back in May 2018.Harris said today that he expected that the backlog would be “significantly reduced” over the summer months.

Tagsborder crisis child migrant crisis Hispanic evangelicals homepage featured immigration Top Story,You may also like Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,(RNS) — The head of the largest Hispanic evangelical Christian network in the United States announced it will offer to work with the Trump administration to provide resources and shelter to migrant children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.Speaking during a call with reporters Monday (July 1), the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, said his organization plans to launch a campaign to offer aid to immigrant children held in detention centers at the border.The effort, which organizers are calling the “For His Children” campaign, will involve sending “shipments and cargo and truckloads of resources to the border,” including shoes, clothing and hygiene products, Rodriguez said.“We have boots on the ground literally now working with our current administration in addressing some of the needs of these children coming over,” he said.When a Religion News Service reporter asked if the campaign would involve churches providing shelter or foster homes for migrant children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, Rodriguez said yes.“That’s part of what we have in the rollout of the campaign,” he said. “It’s part of it.”The Rev. Samuel Rodriguez in 2013. Courtesy photoIt was not immediately clear how many — or which — children the group might be able to take in. No details were available about what kind of government approval the process would require. It was also not clear whether the children would be housed just in churches or also in homes.The Kairos Company, the communications firm that organized the call, told RNS churches who participate in the program plan to offer housing to children who would otherwise end up in detention centers, but noted they have not yet secured approval from the U.S. government to do so.“In the meantime the churches will provide the necessary basic necessities and we are opening up churches to accommodate just in case the detention centers cannot hold the children or their families,” a spokesperson said in an email. “The church becomes a temporary housing facility for those seeking asylum or coming over the border undocumented and were captured in the process.”The spokesperson also noted that the initiative will be led by the NHCLC, but not limited to their network.RNS also asked the U.S. State Department about the potential program, but they deferred to the Department of Homeland Security, who also did not immediately respond. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services — which assists with similar programs — also did not immediately respond to request for comment.Rodriguez said For His Children is “revamping” a previous partnership with the humanitarian organization Convoy of Hope. That partnership began in July 2014 when unaccompanied children arrived in the U.S. under former President Obama.The NHCLC president listed as potential partners Gus Reyes, director of the Baptist General Convention of Texas’ Christian Life Commission, and Rev. Eli Bonilla, lead pastor at Bethel Christian Church in Orlando, Florida.“Our preferable choice is for people to come here legally, not illegally. We want to stop all illegal immigration for a number of reasons, including the humanitarian reason. My heart broke when I saw these kids. I don’t want these kids to be in danger or to suffer at all,” Rodriguez said.“If they do come here, we want to be a blessing to them. We really want to help them.”Still, he said, he saw something “drastically different from the stories I’ve been hearing in our national discourse” when he requested a visit to a detention facility last week in El Paso, Texas.“I was shocked at the misinformation of the crisis at the border.”He and a delegation of pastors from the NHCLC had full access to the facility, which they toured for at least an hour, he said.It appeared to be a “summer camp environment” where children had television and snacks and cordial relationships with guards, Rodriguez said.

RNS photo by Jair Cabrera TorresRodriguez said guards emphatically told him they had not altered the center for the visit but acknowledged he was not allowed to speak with the children.James Dobson, the founder of Focus on the Family, similarly grabbed headlines last week with a newsletter documenting his visit to the border at McAllen, Texas, alleging “the media and leftist politicians have not been truthful about what is going on there.”Both Rodriguez and Dobson are represented by The Kairos Company.The Evangelical Immigration Table also visited the U.S.-Mexico border in late June, as revelations about the dire conditions of children within detention centers made the news. Its delegation included the National Association of Evangelicals President Leith Anderson and World Relief President Scott Arbeiter, as well as representatives of Bethany Christian Services, the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities and the Assemblies of God.The NHCLC is a member of the Evangelical Immigration Table.Afterward, the Evangelical Immigration Table sent a letter addressed to President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Senate Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and members of Congress.That letter asks for immediate funding for border facilities, urges the U.S. to respect its own laws regarding asylum seekers and expressed concern about Trump’s so-called “Remain in Mexico” program.In a recorded press call about the letter, Anderson said there are churches throughout the U.S. that are “eager to welcome families and provide for them.“We just need federal policies that would allow them to be able to do that,” he said.Anderson also asked Congress to “find a bipartisan solution to this tragic situation.”One issue preventing churches and faith-based agencies from helping asylum seekers is the “Remain in Mexico” program, which is sending asylum seekers back over the border to Mexico while they wait for their cases to be heard in U.S. immigration court, according to Matthew Soerens, national coordinator of the Evangelical Immigration Table and U.S. director of church mobilization for World Relief.Another issue is that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has run out of resources to place children with agencies like Bethany Christian Services that are authorized to provide foster care for children until they can be reunited with family, Soerens said.Also, churches would need government approval and oversight to take in children. Not just anyone can show up and offer to foster a migrant child who has been separated from his or her family at the border, he confirmed — and that’s “for good reason.”He added, “You have to protect children.” Share This!

Jim Harbaugh blew up Nick Saban on Twitter over satellite camps

first_imgUniversity of Michigan Head Coach Jim Harbaugh doesn’t shy away from confrontation. He’s ruffled feathers in the coaching ranks with his Sun Tzu “Art of War” recruiting tactics. He’s made one thing perfectly clear. He doesn’t give a singular damn who doesn’t like it.Harbaugh ticked off SEC coaches when he decided to hold his spring practices in Florida, the heart of SEC recruiting country. He’s also been an advocate for controversial satellite recruiting camps.On Tuesday, Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban addressed the media at the SEC spring meetings.  He was vocal in expressing his dislike for satellite camps.  During his rant, he name dropped Harbaugh, one of their biggest supporters. Harbaugh clearly didn’t appreciate Saban’s comments. He hopped on Twitter and fired off the social media equivalent of a targeted drone strike at Saban.“Amazing” to me- Alabama broke NCAA rules & now their HC is lecturing us on the possibility of rules being broken at camps. Truly “amazing.”— Coach Harbaugh (@CoachJim4UM) June 1, 2016What happens next is anyone’s guess. One thing is for certain, college football is a helluva lot more interesting with Jim Harbaugh. This is “amazing”. Advertisementlast_img read more

With prostate permanent seed implantation at Swedish, we were able to successfully develop and propagate this treatment strategy to become the most respected implant program in the U.S. Our goal is to replicate this experience, bringing the treatment to women coast-to-coast.  Our vision is to build the preeminent breast implant program, and to train the next generation of radiation oncologists in the technique.” Karen Hendershott, M.D., surgical specialist in breast surgery at SCI, added, “We’re thrilled to be offering this groundbreaking treatment option for early-stage breast cancer. We already had a partial breast radiation program at SCI, so we were very excited to learn about this less invasive Breast Microseed Treatment. This allows us one more opportunity to tailor the treatment to the patient not the patient to the treatment.” While its first partner is in Seattle, Concure Oncology is planning significant national rollout plans for additional sites to offer treatment in the near future, including sites in Pennsylvania, Georgia and California.For more information: www.breastmicroseed.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Catalyst PT image courtesy of C-RAD News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more News | Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 First Patient Enrolled in World’s Largest Brain Cancer Clinical Trial Henry Ford Cancer Institute is first-in-the-world to enroll a glioblastoma patient in the GBM AGILE Trial (Adaptive… read more Technology | Brachytherapy Systems, Women’s Healthcare | May 12, 2016 Concure Oncology Launches One-Time, One-Day Radiation Treatment for Early-Stage Breast Cancer Breast Microseed Treament offers form of low-dose rate brachytherapy that reduces side effects frequency and duration of radiation therapylast_img read more
