Snoopy joining Sony Electronics maker buying Peanuts stake

first_imgTOKYO – Snoopy may be joining Sony.Japanese electronics maker Sony Corp. said Monday that it is buying a stake in Peanuts Holdings, the company behind Snoopy and Charlie Brown.Sony Music Entertainment signed a deal with DHX Media, based in Nova Scotia, Canada, to acquire 49 per cent of the 80 per cent stake DHX holds in Peanuts.Under the deal, Sony Music will own 39 per cent and DHX 41 per cent. The family members of Charles Schulz, the creator of Peanuts, will continue to own 20 per cent of Peanuts. The parties hope to complete the acquisition on or about June 30, according to Tokyo-based Sony.Sony said it sees Peanuts as “world class,” and hopes to use its character business expertise to strengthen the brand and push the business to grow. Snoopy and other Peanuts characters are extremely popular in Japan, featured in a variety of everyday goods from T-shirts to plastic chopsticks.The comic series was translated into Japanese decades ago, becoming an instant hit.DHX is a leading children’s content and brand company, known for Strawberry Shortcake as well as producing children’s shows, in addition to Peanuts.Sony has a range of characters under its wings, including those from its PlayStation video games. Its film division makes the Spider-man movie series.Peanuts began as a comic, first published in American newspapers in 1950. It’s now carried in 2,200 newspapers around the world in 21 languages. In 2020, it will celebrate its 70th anniversary. Schultz, who used to say that all he wanted to do was to “draw funny pictures,” died in 2000.The popularity of Peanuts stems partly from its ability to connect with a wide audience through its poetic portrayal of a children’s world, exploring with sensitivity and humour themes such as failure, heartbreak and pursuit of music.___Follow Yuri Kageyama on Twitter at work can be found at read more

Ban calls for enhanced funding and resources for UN mediation role

23 September 2008Stressing the importance of mediation in both resolving and avoiding conflict, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today called for proper funding and requisite resources to build up the United Nations’ capacity to carry out this vital role. Addressing a high-level Security Council debate on mediation and the settlement of disputes, Mr. Ban noted that while a small Mediation Support Unit (MSU) was set up in 2005 after the UN World Summit, only two positions are funded by the regular budget.“Today, I would like to call upon the Council, and indeed all Member States, to invest up-front in our mediation capacity so that we can do more of this quiet diplomacy – and less often cross that Rubicon to where vast suffering and huge peacekeeping expenditures become inevitable,” he said.“Without prejudging the role of the General Assembly in deciding budgetary matters, I urge the Council to ensure that mediation efforts have the requisite resources.”Mr. Ban said past experience suggested that effective and coordinated mediation efforts throughout a conflict cycle are necessary for effective peacekeeping and peacebuilding.“It is thus critical that the Security Council provide the same support to enhance the structures, processes, tools and resources required for mediation as it does for peacekeeping and peacebuilding activities,” he added.He underlined the important role mediation plays when quiet diplomacy has enabled the parties to step back from the brink of conflict before it erupts, thereby saving the world untold lives, troops and money, as well as when peacekeepers have to be deployed quickly to save lives before a peace is reached, thus avoiding further bloodshed.On settling disputes, Mr. Ban said the Council’s most positive contributions come when the 15-member body agrees on common principles for resolving a conflict and when it is prepared to use leverage, such as the use of targeted sanctions that “greatly supported” mediation efforts in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Angola.In a presidential statement underlining the important contribution of regional and sub-regional organizations, civil society and other stakeholders, the Council resolved to strengthen UN support for mediation efforts through improved cooperation, in particular in Africa.Noting that women have an important role to play in the settlement of disputes, the Council stressed the importance of their equal participation and full involvement in all efforts for the maintenance and promotion of peace and security, and called on the Secretary-General and heads of regional and sub-regional organizations to take into account the gender aspect during mediators selection processes. Many members at today’s meeting were represented by their foreign ministers, who are in New York for the high-level debate of the 63rd UN General Assembly, while Panama’s delegation was headed by its President, Martin Torrijos. read more

The Community was devasted last season by hurricanes Irma and Maria.Ambassador LaRocque noted he remains positive following a recent meeting in Barbados where discussions focused on the pledges and resources from development donors.During the conference, the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) will facilitate a series of meetings on building resilience in Montego Bay. The engagements began today and will be reported to the Heads when they meet.Thursday and Friday’s working sessions will also include discussions with the Presidents of Chile, Sebastián Piñera, and Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel.

Man claims to have gone 60 years without bathing

first_imgAN IRANIAN MAN that claims to have not bathed in 60 years has apparently broken a record for his efforts.The Islamic Republic News Agency and the Tehran Times both report that the man, Amou Haji, last washed himself when he was just 20 years old.See more of the unbelievable pictures here.The reasoning behind the rather extreme lifestyle choice is that he believes that clean skin only brings on illness. The Times says he is a recluse living in the countryside after ‘emotional setbacks’ in his youth.But his controversial lifestyle doesn’t end there. Haji also eats rotten meat, drinks dirty water and smokes a pipe filled with animal feces, according to the newspaper.His home is a “hole in the ground resembling a grave” and he also has an open brick shack built by “those who felt sorry for him”.The Tehran Times, however, feel he’s better off than most. His roof is the starred sky, his little shack is paid in full without worrying about monthly mortgages, his pillow and quilt is the soft cushion of the earth embracing him every time.Haji surely trumps the man found in 2011 in India.

I admire Trumps insight Fifthgeneration rancher yearns for wall along Mexican border

first_img Source: Brian SkoloffTO MANY, DONALD Trump’s pledge to build a wall along the US-Mexico border is unrealistic. But for Jim Chilton, it’s the only way he’ll get a good night’s sleep.The 77-year-old, a fifth-generation rancher on the Arizona border with Mexico, says he has grown weary of seeing drug smugglers – rather than just cattle – on his ranch and a wall is the answer to his troubles.“I really admire Trump for having the insight and the knowledge to know what’s wrong with the current border system,” he said, as he surveyed the sprawling desert plains of his 75-square-mile ranch that stretches to the Mexican border.“We need a wall. I’ve been saying that for 10 years… and we need roads along the boundary and the border patrol to be deployed there and not let anybody in,” he added. 64 Comments Short URL Jim Chilton shows off what are known as ‘carpet shoes’. Source: Brian SkoloffChilton – who keeps a gun holstered on his hip, a rifle by his front door and a pistol by his bedside – added that he and other ranchers are also in favour of beefed up security in remote border areas as extremist groups like Islamic State (IS) may be using them to slip operatives into the United States.“We have no idea on this porous international boundary how many people from IS are actually coming in,” he said, standing by the four-strand barbed wire fence on his ranch.“It could be awful, it could be horrible.This is the international boundary and it’s outrageous that it’s open for 25 miles of fence just like this.Although several US politicians have claimed that members of the jihadist group were present in Mexico and had crossed into the US through the southern border, authorities have said there was no actual evidence of that.Humanitarian and security issueBut beyond the drug cartels and threat of terrorism, Chilton insists that Trump’s wall is all the more necessary for humanitarian reasons.“It’s just outrageous for me to find a dead body on my ranch. It’s outrageous for the border patrol to find a dead body and it’s outrageous for my cowboys,” he said, referring to migrants who often die making the crossing into the US through the brutal desert.This is as big a humanitarian issue as it is a national security issue.He said he always carries at least 10 gallons of water in his pick-up truck in the event he runs into desperate migrants, but in recent years their numbers have dwindled as drug cartels took control of the border area.According to the US Border Patrol, nearly 2,600 bodies have been recovered since 1998 from the desert in the Tucson, Arizona sector which covers 262 miles of the border.But groups that work closely with migrant issues in that area say they doubt the number of casualties will decline if a wall is built.They point to the 652 miles of fencing and related infrastructure that already exist along the US-Mexico border as an example of why a barrier – however tall and solid – will not deter people from trying to illegally enter the US.“A fence by itself will do absolutely nothing if you don’t have somebody watching it all the time,” said Mike Kreyche, a member of Tucson Samaritans, a humanitarian group that drops water and food along migrant trails in the desert.“I think the biggest thing missing from this conversation about migrants is looking into the root causes,” he added.As someone said, ‘Show me a 50-foot wall and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder.’- © AFP, 2016Read: Mike Pence’s plane slides off runway in New York >Read: Philippines president who called Pope a “son of a b****” has promised God he won’t curse again > 27,411 Views It would make my life so much better and I’d feel more secure.The Republican US presidential candidate has made building a wall along the southern border a staple of his campaign and has said the structure would cost $8-12 billion, with Mexico footing the bill.He has also pledged to deport some 11 million people who are in the country illegally.Chilton, who admits that Trump was not his first choice among the Republican candidates for the White House, says building a barrier to secure the 3,200 km US-Mexico frontier not only makes sense but is also a question of national security.Occupied land “I live in a no-man’s land. I live in a land that is occupied by the Sinaloa drug cartel,” he sighed, pointing to mountains on his ranch where he said scouts equipped with sophisticated equipment are posted as lookouts for smugglers.“I have seen cartel scouts on these two mountains before … and even in my front yard,” he said.I wave at them and they often yell ‘hola’ and wave back.

Irish teenager stars as Bournemouth stun 9man Spurs

Source: The42 Rugby Weekly/SoundCloudSubscribe to our new podcast, The42 Rugby Weekly, here: 37 Comments Subscribe A LATE NATHAN Ake goal saw Bournemouth beat Tottenham 1-0 in the Premier League today.Spurs finished the game with nine men, as both Son Heung-Man and Juan Foyth were sent off either side of half time.19-year-old Irish goalkeeper Mark Travers made a string of impressive saves on his debut.The result meant Tottenham Hotspur’s bid for Champions League football was rocked in a game where a win would have seen them secure a top-four spot.South Korea forward Son was sent off for a needless push in the closing moments of the first half and Argentine defender Foyth saw red for a studs-up lunge soon after the interval, barely two minutes after entering the field as a half-time substitute.Mauricio Pochettino’s side looked like they would hold on for a point as the match entered stoppage-time, but Bournemouth defender Ake ended third-placed Tottenham’s stubborn resistence to delay their attempt to guarantee a place in the Premier League’s top four.Fourth-placed Chelsea will now go above Spurs if they defeat Watford and Arsenal, currently fifth, will move to within one point of their north London rivals if they beat Brighton.Tottenham’s ninth defeat in their last 15 games in all competitions means they need to wait for Sunday’s results to see if they need to win their final Premier League game of the season at home to Everton on 12 May.It was the worst possible preparation for their bid to overturn a 1-0 deficit in the Champions League semi-final second leg at Ajax on Wednesday. Bournemouth goalkeeper Mark Travers celebrates victory. Source: Mark KertonPochettino didn’t rest any of his key players ahead of the trip to Amsterdam, with Son, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Moussa Sissoko and Lucas Moura all starting, although Jan Vertonghen was absent after his head injury in midweek.Lucas Moura tried to catch out Travers with an audacious effort from the halfway line.Travers was way off his line, but went unpunished as the Tottenham forward’s shot went just wide.The 19-year-old was fortunate on that occasion, but he proved he had banished any nerves when he dived to his right to save Dele Alli’s long-range strike.- Ugly tackle -Lucas tried again from more conventional range when the Brazilian burst clear for a shot from the edge of the area that Travers did well to tip over the bar.Shining in his personal duel with Lucas, Travers foiled the Tottenham star for a third time, quickly rushing off his line to save with his legs.At 19 years and 351 days, Travers, who has already received a Republic of Ireland call-up, was the first teenage goalkeeper to start a Premier League game since Joe Hart in October 2006.Travers’ last game of senior club football was during his loan spell with non-league Weymouth at Gosport Borough on New Year’s Day 2018 in front of a crowd of just 418.He showed no signs of stage-fright on this much bigger occasion and produced another superb save to keep out Alli’s header.Tottenham finished the half down to 10 men as Son earned an out-of-character dismissal.Frustrated by a heated battle for possession with Ryan Fraser, Son responded to Jefferson Lerma’s presence by shoving the Bournemouth midfielder to the turf, leaving Craig Pawson no option but to flash the red card.Tottenham’s disciplinary woes weren’t finished yet and Pochettino was left shell-shocked after his half-time substitute Foyth was the second player to be sent off following an ugly tackle that smashed into Jack Simpson’s leg in the 48th minute.To Pochettino’s credit, Tottenham reorganised effectively enough to keep Bournemouth at bay until the final minutes.Yet they couldn’t hold out and Ake headed home from Fraser’s corner in the 91st minute.In a dramatic finale, Tottenham felt they should have had a penalty with the last kick when Alli was bundled over by Wilson, but Pawson ignored their protests.© – AFP 2019Additional reporting by Paul FennessyGavan Casey and Murray Kinsella are joined by Andy Dunne to discuss all the week’s rugby news.: Short URL 39,970 Views center_img Saturday 4 May 2019, 2:27 PM Image: Mark Kerton By AFP Irish teenager stars as Bournemouth stun 9-man Spurs Tottenham have still yet to guarantee Champions League football next season.

Huit villes de France sont concernées.Après publication d’un décret le week-end dernier, les fonctionnaires de Clermont-Ferrand, Sélestat, Haguenau, Lyon, Nice, Rennes, Strasbourg et Paris déposant un arrêt de travail auront désormais de grandes chances d’être contrôlés par la Sécurité sociale. Cette dernière souhaite mettre fin aux abus observés en se chargeant elle-même des contrôles, comme pour le privé. Ceux-ci étaient jusqu’alors effectués par les services de l’État. Ce sont les arrêts de plus de quarante-cinq jours et de moins de six mois qui devraient être surveillés de façon prioritaire, durant une période test de deux ans. Les heures de présence au domicile seront ainsi observées.

Apple to Pay 24 Million for Infringing on Ancient Pager Patents

first_img Register Now » 3 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. November 19, 2014 Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. A federal jury has ruled that Apple must pay $23.6 million to Mobile Telecommunications Technologies (MTel) for infringing on five of its patents, which cover pager technology.Unsurprisingly, the patents were granted a while ago — all were filed sometime between 1992 and 1997, the Guardian reports, and a few have already expired. (Interestingly, patent law allows for the collection of back-payments, so MTel can still make money off them).MTel sued Apple last year, claiming that services on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch (particularly iMessage, emojis and calendar invitations) infringed on a number of its patents that cover pager technology.Related: Looks Like Big Tech Is Winning the Battle With Patent TrollsApple argued that the patents in question were invalid when they were issued, but even if the jury disagreed with that assessment, the infringement fee should be a maximum of $1 million, reports Ars Technica. The tech giant’s case mirrored criticisms often thrown a technology patents granted in the ’90s:  They’re overly broad and fuzzily worded (the United States Patent and Trademark office awarded a patent covering the “interactive web,” which…means what, exactly?)MTel’s lawyers countered that the company was a pioneer in wireless messaging in the 1990s with its development of the SkyTel two-way paging system, and as such its patents deserve recognition. “The guys working back then at SkyTel were way ahead of their time,” Andrew Fitton, CEO of United Wireless (which controls MTel) told Bloomberg. “This is vindication for all their work.” MTel was seeking $237 million, or $1 per infringing device sold, but the company’s lawyers applauded the verdict nonetheless.“Apple makes a great product and they deserve a lot of the credit they get,” Daniel Scardino, one of MTel’s lawyers, told Re/code. “But they should also give credit to those who are due credit for advancing the state of technology that came before them. That’s what this trial is all about.”Apple has been taken to court a lot lately. Last month, the tech giant won another infringement case involving pager patents; in that instance, Apple was able to depict the plaintiff, GPNE, as a patent troll. Related: A Rant, and Some Suggestions What to Do, About Patent TrollsAs the Guardian notes, MTel isn’t technically a patent troll — the colloquial term for non-practicing entities, or companies that collect patents not in order to make products or services, but instead solely to collect licensing fees from accused infringers – because it actually still uses its patented technology to operate a pager system for firefighters and paramedics.However, that doesn’t mean it isn’t acting like one – according to Ars Technica, since 2012, MTel has sued Amazon, AT&T, Blackberry, Clearwire, Leap Wireless, LG Electronics, Sprint Nextel, HTC,  ZTE, T-Mobile, and United Parcel Service. Most suites were filed in the Eastern District of Texas, a district renowned for favoring patentees. (Out of the more than 6,000 patent suits filed in United States federal courts last year nearly 25 percent were filed in the Eastern District of Texas, according to the Electronic Frontier Foundation).Next up in line for the courthouse: Samsung. MTel is suing the company for infringing the same pager patents.Related: Tesla’s New Patent Strategy Makes Senselast_img read more

The workshop… read more January 25, 2016 — EOS Imaging announced a new partnership with Montreal-based Spinologics to develop a biomechanical simulation software dedicated to spine surgery planning that will be integrated into EOS Imaging’s cloud-based, 3-D planning software. The co-development will allow surgeons to plan treatment from EOS 3-D datasets, taking into account the patient’s stiffness and physiological parameters.Spinologics’ team of spine surgeons and engineers has developed dedicated software to simulate the biomechanical response to various approaches of spinal treatment. Spinologics’ latest release includes an improved multi-axial screw finite element model and a new spinal hook model in patients surgeries including up to four rods.The biomechanical model of the spine and the pelvis provides input to define a planned correction, taking into account the spine stiffness while predicting if there could be a risk of failure along the course of treatment. It will bring particular value to the correction of elderly patient deformity and degenerative spine conditions for which spine flexibility is diminished. The approach also applies to pediatric surgery.The joint development effort will utilize patient-specific 3-D datasets from EOS exams to simulate in-situ bending, vertebral de-rotation and contraction-distraction as well as gravitational effects. The new capability should allow surgeons to better understand and anticipate the effects of forces on the spine while planning initial and revision surgeries. EOS Imaging will have the exclusive rights to sell the new software worldwide, with an anticipated release date of the first product by mid-2017.The EOS platform provides 2-D and 3-D full-body, stereo-radiographic images of patients in functional positions. EOS exams offer a radiation dose 50 to 85 percent less than digital radiography and 95 percent less than basic computed tomography (CT) scans.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Artificial Intelligence | June 11, 2019 Aidoc Earns FDA Approval for AI for C-spine Fractures Radiology artificial intelligence (AI) provider Aidoc announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared… read more Technology | Advanced Visualization | June 13, 2019 Materialise Receives FDA Clearance for Cardiovascular Planning Software Suite Three-dimensional (3-D) printing software and solutions company Materialise has received U.S. Food and Drug… read more Technology | Artificial Intelligence | June 20, 2019 TeraRecon Receives First-of-Kind FDA Determination for Northstar AI Results Explorer Advanced visualization and artificial intelligence (AI) technology provider TeraRecon has successfully completed a U.S… read more Feature | Molecular Imaging | July 01, 2019 | By Sharvari Rale Transformations in Molecular Imaging Herald Entry to Novel Applications Diagnostic procedures have always been a cornerstone of early prognosis and patient triaging. read more Technology | Virtual and Augmented Reality | June 10, 2019 Medivis SurgicalAR Gets FDA Clearance Medivis announced that its augmented reality (AR) technology platform for surgical applications, SurgicalAR, has… read morelast_img read more
