She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com.center_img Parkinson’s UK is launching a grant funding initiative with Sport Parkinson’s CIC, with the aim of enabling people with the condition to participate in inclusive sport and physical activity across the world.Sport Parkinson’s has been founded by trio Charlie Appleyard, Matt Dimbylow and Garen Williams, who are all living with Parkinson’s.Over the course of the next three years, the initiative will aim to raise £175,000 for the Parkinson’s UK Active Community Grants Programme through a range of fundraising events. The funds will be used to set up new activities, expand existing programmes, pay for instructors and to develop innovative pilot projects to roll out across the community.Parkinson’s is the fastest growing neurological condition in the world, and currently there is no cure. It affects around 145,000 people in the UK and there are over 40 symptoms, from tremor and pain to anxiety. As exercise can be as important as medication to help people with Parkinson’s manage their symptoms, the charity has continued to help the community stay active through online exercise classes during the Covid-19 pandemic.Charlie Appleyard, Co-Founder and Director at Sport Parkinson’s, said:“We are very excited to be launching this initiative to help people with Parkinson’s keep healthy and strong until a cure comes along. We want to enable the Parkinson’s community to get active, build relationships, gain access to subsidised sport and exercise and attend exciting events. It’s all about bringing the community together in difficult times and encouraging them to keep moving.“We believe that we can share our vision of the future with others, a vision that is much bigger than Sport Parkinson’s and Parkinson’s UK. Above all we want to create an environment where every person with Parkinson’s has a chance to reach their full potential.”Ghalib Ullah, Head of Commercial Partnerships at Parkinson’s UK, said: Advertisement “We’re delighted to be collaborating with such passionate ambassadors for Parkinson’s to break down the barriers that exist for people with Parkinson’s and keep them active.“Exercise is not only important for boosting the mental and physical well being of so many living with this debilitating condition, but for building strong connections and confidence. We look forward to seeing the global Parkinson’s community get active.” Parkinson’s organisations launch joint grant funding initiative to make sports more inclusivelast_img read more

Journalist’s long jail term designed to intimidate

first_img RSF_en Organisation Follow the news on Azerbaijan RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan News News “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says to go further June 4, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is appalled by the sentence of seven and a half years in prison that a Baku court passed today on leading investigative journalist Khadija Ismayilova after convicting her on almost all the charges brought against her.Release Khadija IsmayilovaPetition“Khadija Ismayilova’s long jail sentence is unfortunately no surprise because the Azerbaijani judicial system’s function seems to be to provide state repression with a veneer of legality,” said Johann Bihr, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk.“But this arbitrary verdict and sentence is no less appalling for that. Ismayilova’s only crime was to investigate high-level government corruption with courage and persistence. This trial sends a very powerful intimidatory message to all her fellow journalists in Azerbaijan.”Ismayilova was not even allowed to finish reading her final statement during the penultimate hearing yesterday. Most independent journalists and observers were kept at a distance throughout the long trial.Arrested on 5 December 2014, Ismayilova has already spent nine months in provisional detention on fluctuating trumped-up charges.In the end she was convicted on almost all of the charges except the particularly absurd charge that she had incited a fellow journalist to attempt suicide.After crushing all media pluralism, the Azerbaijani authorities have been orchestrating an unprecedented crackdown on independent journalists since last year.Reporters Without Borders calls for the immediate and unconditional release of Ismayilova and the 11 other journalists and bloggers held in Azerbaijan in connection with their reporting, and urges Baku’s international partners to raise her case in all bilateral talks.Azerbaijan is ranked 162nd out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.Read Khadija Ismayilova’s final statement in full.

What are the benefits of hiring a credit union security consultant?

by ,

first_img continue reading » Pulling in a third party to bolster your security needs will increase your overhead a little bit. In today’s blog post, we’ll take a look at three reasons why hiring a credit union security consultant may be worth it in the end.Popular bars employ certified security personnel as bouncers to keep the riff-raff at bay. The president’s secret service members provide a constant additional layer of safety. Even evil masterminds populate their underground lairs with henchmen. The fact of the matter is if you’re trying to operate in peace, but you’re also exposed to the myriad of unknown public and private forces, you may want to consider hiring a third-party security consultant. Here’s why:1) They Are Not Bound by Political TiesOf course, this isn’t to say that the security experts don’t vote in elections; rather, they have no vested interest in the inter- and intra-office politics going on in your credit union. While some staff are tasked with many duties, and some departments may occasionally struggle against each other for funding or influence, security consultants have only one job: they’re there to protect the interests of the credit union, and that’s that.

Governor Taps Hanlon As Monmouth County Clerk

by ,

first_imgBy John BurtonGov. Chris Christie has selected a long involved Republican activist to be the next county clerk. Now it’s up to the state Senate to offer its advice and consent.Christie has tapped Christine Giordano Hanlon, an attorney and vice chairwoman of the Monmouth County Republican Committee, to fill the vacancy when long-serving County Clerk M. Claire retires effective April 1.According to French, Hanlon’s nomination is contingent on the approval of the Senate’s Judiciary Committee. If approved, Hanlon would have to run this November for the clerk’s full five-year term.The judiciary committee was scheduled to convene this week but it was unlikely its members would take up Hanlon’s nomination this quickly, French suspected.“I’m hopeful we can get her nomination approved by the judiciary as soon as possible,” French said.Hanlon, an Ocean Township resident, has been a practicing lawyer for more than 20 years. She currently works for the Archer and Greiner law firm’s Red Bank office, where she focuses on municipal law and civil litigation.Hanlon is also a Republican state committeewoman representing Monmouth County and in 2009 she served on Christie’s transition team for the attorney general’s office.  She was the Monmouth County campaign coordinator for Christie on his first run for governor in 2009 and had been the county coordinator for the McCain-Palin GOP ticket in 2008. She has been on the Monmouth County Board of Elections for approximately five years.“She’s a very hard worker and a very capable person,” Thomas Szymanski, executive director for the county Republican committee, said of Hanlon this week.“I’m very honored to have been nominated for this position by Gov. Christie,” Hanlon said on Tuesday. “It’s a very exciting opportunity.”It was with her work with the board of elections that French said she has gotten to know Hanlon, calling her “an expert on election issues.”“And that is a great help in this job,” French maintained.That and her legal background has given Hanlon “a good amount of experience to fill the role,” Hanlon noted. “I can only hope to live up to the standard of excellence that Claire has set,” she added, tipping her hat to the current clerk.The county clerk’s office has responsibilities over recording all property records; oversees the county archives division, for the large collection of public documents, some of which date back to the 17th century; the county passport division, assisting county residents in obtaining their passports; and administering the elections division, requiring the office to prepare ballots, process vote-by-mail applications, tabulate vote totals and certify county results for the New Jersey Secretary of State.Hanlon, in 2012, had unsuccessfully challenged then county GOP chairman John O. Bennett, losing to the former state senator by a very narrow margin. When Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden won the chairmanship from Bennett in 2014, Golden named Hanlon as one of his four vice chairs, dividing the county into sections.French last month announced she would be retiring before finishing her fourth, five-year term, holding the position for 18 years.last_img read more

NCAA Season 93’s Best 7: Week 11

by ,

first_imgBSP sees higher prices in November, but expects stronger peso, low rice costs to put up fight LATEST STORIES Though San Sebastian evened its standing at 6-6, it should find a way to be more consistent if it wants to break its three-year Final Four drought this season.And the only solution for that to happen is for guys like Navarro to churn out solid numbers to compliment the stable showing of Michael Calisaan.5. Rey Nambatac – G, Letran Knights19.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, 1.5 assistsLast Week: N/AOnce again, Rey Nambatac showed that he can be a threat for Letran with or without the ball.The senior guard allowed his teammates to shine in the Knights’ 84-73 win over Arellano on Tuesday.But with Letran seeking revenge against first round tormentor Mapua, Nambatac exploded for 17 first half points to steer his side to an 88-79 victory, enough for it to once again get itself in the conversation as one of the favorites to snare those last two spots.6. Kent Salado – G, Arellano Chiefs23.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 1.5 stealsLast Week: 6For the third straight week, Kent Salado has found himself still at the sixth spot of this list.That’s what you get after another even week despite another solid showing.Salado’s numbers weren’t enough for Arellano to pull off a triumph against Letran on Tuesday, losing 73-84, but with Michael Cañete providing the much needed support, the Chiefs halted their two-game slide on Friday and remained alive in the playoff race. CJ Perez remains a force to be reckoned with for Lyceum, and his greatness is underscored with his supporting cast also delivering.The energetic forward showed that there’s no such thing as a second round slump for him, getting his bearings back to do it all for the Pirates in their 94-83 win over Perpetual.Lyceum may have clinched a twice-to-beat in the Final Four, but Perez knows there the tougher wars still ahead and their 13-0 record won’t mean nothing if the Pirates don’t get the job done in the playoffs.3. Javee Mocon – F, San Beda Red Lions19 points, 15 rebounds, 5 assistsLast Week: 2Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netJust like Perez for Lyceum, Javee Mocon’s performance was once again the catalyst in helping San Beda notch its 11th straight victory.The hardworking forward’s performance should largely be credited in keeping the Red Lions in the thick of things, especially after their gritty 65-60 victory over JRU on Friday.But Mocon shouldn’t be alone in hoisting the flag for the Mendiola crew, and coach Boyet Fernandez needs Robert Bolick to rekindle his thunder if San Beda dreams of retaining its NCAA title again later this season.4. Renzo Navarro – G, San Sebastian Golden Stags16 points (5/6 3PT), 3 assistsLast Week: N/ARenzo Navarro. Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netThe littlest man of the court once again made the biggest impact in the clutch for San Sebastian as Renzo Navarro took the spotlight for his side.The diminutive guard waxed hot from downtown, going on a near-perfect clip as he unfurled 12 of his 16 points to aid the Golden Stags nab the huge 73-61 win over St. Benilde. Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients  Just when you thought there’d finally be some clarity in the NCAA, the Final Four race just got more muddled.Pacesetters Lyceum and San Beda have now clinched their respective seats in the semifinals, while cellar dweller Mapua has been the first team to get the boot in the tourney.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutBut the seven other teams still have a crack at the last two spots, with a bounce here and a run there potentially deciding who will make it to the next round.Before that, let’s first take a loot at this week’s best seven players in the NCAA.1. Bong Quinto – F, Letran Knights21.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 2.5 assistsLast Week: N/A Steady is the word for Bong Quinto.The stocky scorer has kept the ship afloat for Letran as it got itself back on track, snapping its three-game losing skid and forcing a third place tie with JRU.Coach Jeff Napa said that the Knights have finally addressed their issues after that funk, and with Quinto being one of the team’s leaders, it shouldn’t come as a surprise if they secure one of those elusive Final Four seats sooner than later.2. CJ Perez – F, Lyceum Pirates21 points, 5 rebounds, 9 assists, 2 stealsLast Week: N/AADVERTISEMENT For the complete collegiate sports coverage including scores, schedules and stories, visit Inquirer Varsity.

Sidney Onwubere – F, EAC Generals19.0 points, 9.5 reboundsLast Week: N/AEAC remained in the running in the Final Four race, but could not extend its streak to three after suffering an 84-79 defeat to Arellano on Friday.But that wasn’t because Sidney Onwubere didn’t fight for the Generals, as the senior forward gave everything for his side.Still, EAC’s performance should be lauded given that it’s playing without its starting frontcourt, and coach Ariel Sison made it clear that the Generals will go for broke to reach its goal of making it to the Final Four.

New version of MIPI CSI-2 looks (literally) beyond mobile phones

by ,

first_img Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must Register or Login to post a comment. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed. When the first camera phones hit the market in 2000, few people could have imagined all of the applications those devices would enable: not just the obvious snaps and selfies, but also electronic check deposits, biometric authentication, and telemedicine, to name just a few.A major reason why these and other applications proliferated is because mobile camera sensors and their adjunct systems have improved dramatically over the past 17 years. The latest milestone is version 2.0 of the MIPI Alliance’s Camera Serial Interface (CSI-2) specification for connecting a mobile device’s camera to its host processor.Version 1.0 is the world’s most widely used interface for imaging and video applications in mobile devices. Version 2.0 builds on that success by giving system designers a variety of new features and capabilities, which in turn enable new market opportunities.CSI-2 Imaging Conduit Solutions (Click Here to see a larger image. Source: MIPI Alliance) For example, MIPI CSI-2 v2.0 is designed for use not only in smartphones, but also Internet of Things (IoT) devices, wearables, medical devices, augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) gear, drones, and vehicles. That expansion reflects the MIPI Alliance Membership: Many of these companies started in the mobile phone market, but are now expanding into applications such as IoT, automotive, drones, and perception and contextual awareness. Their evolution is driving MIPI CSI-2’s evolution. For example, automakers and their suppliers can use MIPI CSI-2 v2.0 to give drivers gesture-based controls so their eyes and attention can stay focused on the road instead of fumbling with knobs, buttons, and sliders.Systems designers have two physical layer options for implementing CSI-2 v2.0: MIPI C-PHY and MIPI D-PHY. Performance is lane-scalable, with support for up to 24 Gbps using a three-lane (nine-wire) C-PHY interface, or 18 Gbps using four-lane (10-wire) D-PHY interface.Both PHY specs have been updated to support CSI-2 v2.0, enabling backwards compatibility. This also reduces cost and time-to-market for users because they can leverage their existing product designs as they migrate to CSI-2 v2.0.Keep your eyes on the road MIPI CSI-2 v1.3 supports a wide variety of resolutions, including 1080p, 4K, and 8K, in both single- and multi-camera implementations. CSI-2 v2.0 enhances those capabilities by adding support for RAW-16 and RAW-20 color depth, which significantly improves intra-scene high-dynamic range (HDR) and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR).These capabilities are a particularly good fit for automotive applications such as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). For example, CSI-2 v2.0 enables those applications to maintain high performance even when the environment changes suddenly and dramatically, such as when a car emerges from a dimly lit tunnel into bright daylight.Automotive system diagram (Click Here to see a larger image. Source: MIPI Alliance) The HDR and SNR enhancements also benefit the Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) used by drones for vision-based navigation. When a drone is subject to big changes in lighting conditions, for example, the HDR and SNR enhancements help it quickly adapt to ensure consistent performance.Another key addition in CSI-2 v2.0 is Latency Reduction and Transport Efficiency (LRTE), which has three major benefits in automotive applications:It increases the number of supported image sensors by as much as 40 percent without requiring costly Serializer/Deserializer (SerDes) or PHY changes.It facilitates optimal transport while preserving system integrity for multiple vision applications.It substantially reduces frame transport latency for real-time perception and decision-making needs.A third key enhancement for automotive applications is the addition of scrambling. This reduces Power Spectral Density (PSD) emissions, thus minimizing interference when sensitive receivers are installed in the vehicle.Many automakers are adding collision-avoidance features both to maximize safety and help differentiate their vehicles in the eyes of buyers who seek those kinds of advanced safeguards. The more things that a collision-avoidance system can sense, the better able it is to protect the vehicle’s occupants.CSI-2 v2.0 supports up to 32 virtual channels (up from four virtual channels in the previous version), which can carry data from the vehicle’s image sensors to its collision-avoidance system. The additional channels also help systems designers accommodate multi-exposure, multi-range sensor fusion for ADAS applications. Just as important, all 32 channels support multiple data types, including raw, compressed, and meta.Finally, CSI-2 v2.0 adds support for Differential Pulse Code Modulation (DPCM) 12-10-12 compression qualified over varying degrees of image set intensity, contrast, and Modular Transfer Function (MTF) to ensure superior Image Quality (IQ). This is particularly useful for vision applications sensitive to compression artifacts such as automotive and drone navigation.New capabilities atop a proven foundation The MIPI Alliance was founded in 2003 to provide something that the marketplace desperately needed: a standardized camera interface specification for mobile devices. But MIPI Alliance members went a few steps further by ensuring that CSI-2 also provides the high bandwidth necessary for high-resolution images, the low power consumption that’s key for battery-operated devices such as IoT sensors and wearables, and very low electromagnetic interference (EMI) for mission-critical applications such as health care.That forward-looking design is a major reason why CSI-2 v2.0 is ideal for more than just smartphone applications.
