China tightens app data collection rules CES 2015 NewsChinaNDRCQualcomm Previous ArticleZTE ramps up US offeringNext ArticleSamsung bets its future on an open IoT world LIVE FROM CES 2015: Derek Aberle, president of Qualcomm, said that reaching a resolution with regard to the company’s ongoing woes in China is “one of the highest priorities for our management team”.Responding to a question in Qualcomm’s press event, the executive continued: “There has been some speculation around and we can’t really comment too much on that. As soon as we get to a resolution, obviously we will be in a better position to talk about it.”According to recent reports, the Chinese government has indicated it could be about to agree a settlement that could cost Qualcomm more than $1 billion. It has also been suggested that the company has changed its licensing fees, to give parity to CDMA and WCDMA-family products.Qualcomm previously said that it believes some companies in China are “not fully complying with their contractual obligations to report their sales of licensed products”, and that others may delay negotiations while the NDRC dispute is ongoing.The US chipmaker has been in talks with the National Development and Reform Commission for some time, with Aberle apparently involved in the process.

Get your sh*t together, U.S. Government.The latest flub from the United States’ immigration services is apparently preventing one of this country’s most beloved rock and rollers in Neil Young from becoming a full-fledged American citizen. The reason: Young’s use of cannabis, which is legal for personal consumption under Federal in his home country of Canada.Related: Nathaniel Rateliff Announces Nightstache Cannabis Collection Under Willie’s ReserveA new post shared to the Neil Young Archives website states that while Young recently applied for U.S. citizenship, and even passed “the test,” his use of cannabis is slowing up the process of getting his application approved.The post points out that an April 2019 addition to the USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) applied by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions (you know, this lame narc) states that “Any applicant who is involved in certain marijuana-related activities may lack GMC (Good Moral Character) if found to have violated federal law, even if such activity is not unlawful under applicable state or foreign laws.”Young continues by saying, “I sincerely hope I have exhibited good moral character and will be able to vote my conscience on Donald J. Trump and his fellow American candidates, (as yet un-named). I will keep you posted, but I don’t think I will be able to remain parked here during the proceedings.”Young’s drive to obtain American citizenship is centered around his desire to vote in the upcoming Presidential elections, as American politics starting to heat up for 2020 campaigns.“I live down here; I pay taxes down here; my beautiful family is all down here,” Young said in a recent interview with The Los Angeles Times. “They’re all Americans, so I want to register my opinion.”While Young may have been 100% honest in his citizenship test and interview, Sessions and his cronies in Washington shouldn’t expect the rocker to budge on his personal freedoms pertaining to the use of, well, plants. This is the same Neil Young after all who turned down millions in performance earnings to tour behind his 1972 Harvest album.America doesn’t deserve you at this point, Neil.[H/T Spin]
Saudi Arabia records new hospital-related MERS caseThe Saudi Arabian Ministry of Health (MOH) announced a new case of hospital-acquired MERS-CoV in Riyadh, involving a health worker who is likely part of a hospital-related outbreak.The 28-year-old Saudi man is in critical condition after being diagnosed as having MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus). This is the fourth secondary hospital-acquired case reported in Riyadh this week. All of the patients have been men, but the other three were apparently infected as patients.Several MERS-CoV outbreaks in hospitals and healthcare clinics have been reported from Saudi Arabia, but the clusters have been smaller over the last 2 years.Saudi Arabia’s MERS-CoV total cases since 2012 are 1,813, including 735 deaths. Ten people are still being treated for their infections.Mar 5 MOH update CEPI’s first partnership will pursue Lassa fever, MERS vaccinesToday the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) announced a partnership with Themis Bioscience to work on advanced development and manufacturing of vaccines for Lassa fever and MERS-CoV.This is the first agreement made by CEPI, which began last year as a coalition to develop new vaccines. Themis will receive $37,500,000 over a 5-year period to develop the vaccines. The funding is expected to carry Themis through phase 2 trials for the vaccines.Lassa fever and MERS-CoV were picked because both diseases can be severe and spread by international travelers.”As we can see with the current outbreak of Lassa fever in Nigeria, these diseases devastate lives and have far reaching economic consequences,” Richard Hatchett, MD, chief executive officer of CEPI said. “Vaccines are a vital part of our fight against them but their development is costly, complex and challenging.”Currently, Themis’ chikungunya vaccine is in phase 2 trials. The company is also developing a Zika virus vaccine.CEPI brings together the governments of Norway, Germany, India and Japan, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Wellcome Trust, and the World Economic Forum to fund new vaccines. Lassa fever, Nipah, and MERS-CoV were the first diseases targeted by the coalition.Mar 7 CEPI announcement FDA announces new tickborne parasite test for US blood supplyThe United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced today its approval of Imugen Babesia microti Arrayed Fluorescent Immunoassay (AFIA) for detecting antibodies to Babesia microti (B microti) in human plasma samples, and the Imugen Babesia microti Nucleic Acid Test (NAT) detecting B microti DNA in human whole blood samples, according to a FDA statement.The tests will detect Babesia parasites that are transmitted by blacklegged or deer tick. These infections cause babesiosis, the most frequently reported transfusion-transmitted parasitic infection in the United States.The United States sees about 1,000 to 2,000 cases of babesiosis each year, with the majority reported from states in the Northeast and upper Midwest.”While babesiosis is both preventable and treatable, until today, there was no way to screen for infections amongst blood donors,” said Peter Marks, MD, PhD, director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research. “Today’s actions represent the first approvals of Babesia detection tests for use in screening donors of whole blood and blood components, and other living donors.”For most people, a babesiosis infection will go unnoticed, but in some, especially those with a compromised immune system, infections can be severe and life-threatening.Donor testing for Babesia has been in place since August 2012 in selected endemic areas under an investigational new drug application, and the FDA had granted priority review for the tests. So far there is no FDA guidance for testing donor samples, but it plans on releasing draft guidance later this year.Mar 6 FDA press release Northern Hemisphere flu activity still high, with mix of flu strainsMany countries in the Northern Hemisphere continue to report brisk flu activity, though disease levels have peaked in some countries, such as the United States and some locations in southwestern Europe and eastern Asia, the World Health Organization (WHO) said in its latest global update.Activity continued to increase in eastern and northern Europe, such as Denmark, Estonia, Norway, Sweden, and Russia. In western Asia, flu activity is still high in Israel, with disease levels increasing in Cyprus. Also, the number of positive flu tests rose in some Caribbean locations and in Singapore and Southeast Asia.Flu is still at interseasonal levels in the Southern Hemisphere, which typically doesn’t see its season begin until May.Globally, influenza A and influenza B made up a similar proportion of detections. Of subtyped influenza A strains, 58.2% were characterized as 2009 H1N1 and 41.8% were H3N2. Of influenza B viruses tested, 94.4% belonged to the Yamagata lineage.Mar 5 WHO global flu update New study shows Lassa fever likely induces renal dysfunctionA new study in the The Lancet Infectious Diseases shows that Lassa fever likely induces acute renal dysfunction in a significant portion of patients and is an indicator of mortality.The study looked at the clinical outcomes of 291 patients with Lassa fever treated at the Irrua Specialist Teaching Hospital in Nigeria between 2011 and 2015. Overall case-fatality rate was 24%, but patients with signs of major organ damage were much less likely to survive their infections.Patients with either elevated serum concentrations of creatinine, aspartate aminotransferase, or potassium were likely to have a poor prognosis. About 28% of patients showed acute kidney injury, and 37% had central nervous system manifestations of the disease that resulted in complications.An accompanying commentary explained that acute renal injury is also common in Ebola, another hemorrhagic disease. Treating the kidney failure can improve clinical outcomes for Ebola patients and should also be pursued for Lassa patients, the author of the commentary suggests.Currently, Nigeria is in the midst of an especially large Lassa fever outbreak.

Courtesy photo Sarah Chandler with volunteers Thursday including Janet Montoya and Florence Riebe. Photo by Bernadette LauritzenBy BERNADETTE LAURITZENExecutive DirectorLARSOThe lyrics from the old Mary Tyler Moore Show suddenly came to mind last Thursday, “She can turn the world on with her smile. She can take a nothing day and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile”. You see Thursday was the last official day for Sarah Chandler of the Los Alamos Retired and Senior Organization (LARSO). LARSO oversees the two local senior centers, and Chandler oversees the Los Alamos Volunteer Association (LAVA) and the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP).Chandler began her relationship with LARSO as the LAVA assistant, under former LAVA Director Linda Boncella. When Boncella was elevated to LARSO director, LAVA was a magical fit for Chandler. What has she enjoyed most about the job? “The absolute best part of this job has always been my association with the volunteers,” Chandler said. “I am regularly moved by the compassion they have for those they serve and for each other.”She said she loves the volunteer quilters thoughtfulness of what families at the Ronald MacDonald House need, how the receptionists there really knew and loved the members, and how the meal helpers remembered what the members like, and assisted people in ways that really protected their dignity. She always made sure the volunteers themselves were properly treated and respected for the thousands of hours that they give to the community year after year. It was a highlight of her year to revel in the annual volunteer appreciation event made magical by Chandler.She was instrumental in creating an awesome new program called HELP Drivers. The Help Driver program takes residents of any age to doctor’s appointments at offices off the hill. There’s no payment made by those requesting a ride, and so much more. The volunteers are vetted with background checks, insured for the trips and the gas is paid for, too. Chandler even made a presentation to the LARSO Board, to pay for the software that allows the behind the scenes work to take place with the simplicity of a cell phone.Chandler said she feels the work with those in the medical area has been a privilege. “HELP Drivers might be the first person a rider tells when they get bad medical news and their calm, kind presence is such a support,” she said. “The careful way the volunteers watch over the donors at the blood drives, quickly responding when someone feels unwell, is true compassion. I love these people, they are exceptional.”She has made such a significant contribution to the volunteer program, as well as to LARSO in general,” Boncella said. “Her exceptional kindness, deep compassion and complete professionalism set her apart. I have no doubt she will be incredibly successful at the lab – they are truly fortunate to have her and I was truly fortunate to have the opportunity to work with her!”
Rangers International FC of Enugu on Wednesday assured teeming fans of its resolve to defeat Algerian Cup Champions, Union Sportive Madina Bel Abbes (USMBA) on Saturday.The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Rangers and USMBA will be trading tackles on Dec. 15, in Algeria in the first leg, the first round of Total/CAF Confederation Cup 2018/2019 season.Rangers’ coach, Olugbenga Ogunbote, said in an interview with journalists in Enugu that the Flying Antelopes were full of confidence going into the round of the second-tier CAF Club competition.He said: “We are glad that we are through the preliminary round and heading into the first round with a date against an Algerian side, I believe that we can safely negotiate through.“We shall give the match all the attention it deserves, home and away. We are taking each game as it comes but we have our sights fixed at the trophy.“There is no better way to show appreciation to our teaming supporters, especially Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu state, for all he has done and still doing for us, and to continue to do to enable the club win more matches.“Ogunbote, however, said that with God everything is possible, adding, “with the right attitude of my players, I am very optimistic about getting a favourable result in Algeria.““We may know very little of our opponent but we are not disturbed as we hope to play our game and get our strides right.“Let our fans continue to pray and support us as we promise not to disappoint them.’’Rangers dispatched enterprising Flying Angels Football Academy, Enugu 3 – 0 in a friendly match on Tuesday evening inside the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu (The Cathedral).The club also demolished Ethiopian Champions, Defence Force S.C. 5 – 1 recently on aggregate in the preliminary round.Related

Neymar says Paris Saint-Germain’s decision to stop him playing the club’s four last games held him back in Tuesday’s defeat against Borussia Dortmund. “We’ve had a lot of discussions on that. I wanted to play, I was feeling well but the club were afraid, and in the end I’m the one suffering.” Neymar provoca un nuevo incendio en el PSG Upd. on 20/02/2020 at 10:35 CET “It was very difficult to play a match like this, intense, 90 minutes without stopping. It is different. Had I been in better shape, I would certainly have played better.” He added: “I understand the fear that the club was suffering from, because in the last two years I was not able to play in the round of 16. I respect the decision, but it cannot be like this, because the player ends up suffering. Neymar was making his first appearance in several weeks as he returned from injury, but he insisted his absence had not been his decision. 19/02/2020 The Brazilian scored PSG’s only goal of the game but it was not enough to stop them going down to a 2-1 loss in Germany in the Champions League round of 16 first-leg match. IN SPORT.ES “It’s hard not to play for four games,” Neymar said. “Unfortunately it was not my choice, it came from the club, the doctors; they’re the ones who made the decision, one that I did not like. Neymar was also injured at this stage of the season in the last two years, missing PSG’s eliminations at the hands of Real Madrid and Manchester United. SPORT.es
