Annual “Swing for Kids Golf Classic”

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 8 settembre 2019

Orthopaedic Institute for Children has announced that its annual “Swing for Kids Golf Classic” will be held Sept. 9 at the beautiful Palos Verdes Golf Club. Proceeds will go to OIC’s 2020 campaign: A Vision for Our Future and help support the creation of The Ahmanson Foundation Fracture Center on OIC’s downtown Los Angeles campus. Serving as master of ceremonies for the tournament will be longtime OIC supporter and star of the Netflix hit series “Insatiable” Christopher Gorham. Other cast members—including Sarah Colonna, Arden Myrin, Michael Provost and Irene Choi—are also scheduled to attend, and Netflix itself will serve as one of the event’s sponsors. Operating in more than 190 countries, Netflix currently has more than 148 million paid subscribers worldwide, including 60 million in the United States; and its sponsorship of the Swing for Kids Golf Classic marks another significant milestone in the history of this tournament, which each year grows in popularity and esteem.Among the golfers participating in this year’s event will be actors Matt Barr and Sebastian Roché. Barr currently stars as Danny McNamara in the action–adventure television series “Blood and Treasure.” Roché is known for his roles as Kurt Mendel in “Odyssey 5,” Jerry Jacks in “General Hospital,” Thomas Jerome Newton in “Fringe,” Balthazar in “Supernatural,” Mikael in both “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Originals,” and Reichsminister Martin Heusmann in “The Man in the High Castle.” “By supporting events such as the Swing for Kids Golf Classic, you help make certain our ability to provide this amazing patient care and ensure that all children with orthopaedic conditions have a future where they can grow well and play well,” said OIC Golf Classic Chair and long-time advocate Dan Madden.The Ahmanson Foundation Fracture Center is a key element in transforming OIC’s Lowman Building into a state-of-the-art medical pavilion. Last month OIC opened Los Angeles’ newest and most modern pediatric orthopaedic urgent care center; and other components of the transformation include a new physical therapy center, research laboratories, pharmacy, Harbison Radiology and The Luck Family Lecture Hall. This makeover will help ensure that OIC’s expert surgeons, doctors and nurses have the best facilities and equipment to care for the increasing number of children who come through its doors.

CEUS Safely Assesses Suspected Liver Tumors in Pregnant Women

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 8 settembre 2019

A team from the University of Munich in Germany has safely performed contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) scans in pregnant women with suspected liver tumors, and found that this minimally-invasive diagnostic imaging tool provided information essential for their care.
CEUS uses injectable suspensions of microscopic bubbles known as ultrasound contrast agents to enhance conventional ultrasound images and provide reliable, real-time images in a variety of clinical settings. Ultrasound contrast agents are approved throughout much of the world for imaging adults and children, but they are not yet approved for imaging pregnant women.“CEUS was safely performed on all of the pregnant women without adverse fetal or maternal events,” according to Professor Dirk-Andre Clevert, who led the study and described the results Thursday at the 34th annual “International Bubble Conference,” a medical conference in Chicago devoted to developments and trends in the CEUS field.“In a few cases, CEUS quickly showed that immediate therapy was required,” he added.The retrospective study used CEUS to evaluate liver lesions of unknown origin in six pregnant women.“CEUS is a very safe and useful imaging modality, and was extremely well tolerated by our pregnant patients,” Professor Clevert said.
“By comparison, CT and MRI scans can raise concerns during pregnancy due to harmful ionizing radiation and cerebral gadolinium deposition, respectively,” he added. Ultrasound contrast agents are used to help diagnose cancers throughout the body, to monitor chronic diseases and the effectiveness of therapy, and to diagnose heart disease and other serious medical conditions.

Trophy time for the champions as women debut in cliff diving finale at Guggenheim Museum Bilbao

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 8 settembre 2019

The art of cliff diving returns to the Basque city to crown the 2019 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series champions while the women premiere in Spain and 2020 tickets are still up for grabs.Although the overall titles were sealed during the penultimate stop in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the pressure is high in the men’s and women’s as only the best performers will make the cut for 2020 during the year’s final aesthetic free falls from up to 27m. Record-setting champions Gary Hunt from Great Britain and Australia’s Rhiannan Iffland have their ambitious goals defined for the final showdown in front of the iconic Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, when for the first time the women will display their graceful art in front of thousands of enthusiastic fans along the Nervión river.After reeling off another record-breaking performance from the old bridge in Mostar, 4-time women’s titleholder Iffland aims for the perfect season of straight wins, while the brilliant Brit is ready for retaliation from the La Salve Bridge, a place where he has failed to win in two previous visits.
Hunt will have added support as wildcards Owen Weymouth and Aidan Heslop – the youngest ever World Series competitor – will make for a 5-diver strong Team GB including former Olympian Blake Aldridge as well as Jessica Macaulay in the women’s.
The 26-year-old Brit will try to defend her runner up position going into the season final against Belarussia’s Yana Nestsiarava and Lysanne Richard from Canada looming in third and fourth only 10 points apart from each other.In the men’s Jonathan Paredes from Mexico sits in a rather solid 2nd place, while America’s Andy Jones targets a repeat of his PB 3rd overall from 2016, when he closed the season with his debut win into the flashlights of Dubai.Through the world ranking, which considers the FINA World Cup and World Championships besides the World Series competitions, the top eight performers will secure a spot for next season. As expected, a lot of talent is pushing into the World Series and four wildcards – three women and one man – bear the chance of earning a permanent ticket from 21m and 27m.After the huge success of the final showdown in 2015, Bilbao’s La Salve Bridge will once again play host as the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series marches towards an exciting and emotional climax, when Colombia’s cliff diving legend Orlando Duque will complete his highly successful competition career during the final stop of the year.

IRONMAN Oceania operates a portfolio of elite endurance races including the iconic IRONMAN triathlon series throughout Australia and New Zealand.The MX3 Hydration Testing System Pro Version uses saliva to measure hydration in seconds, allowing trainers and athletes to assess hydration status anywhere at any time.

A Boost for Mobile AR Takes the Honours at IBC Conference

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 8 settembre 2019

The IBC2019 Best Technical Paper award will be presented to Sebastian Schwarz and Mika Pesonen of Nokia Technologies and Jani Nurminen, co-founder of Innogiant. Their paper, Real-time decoding and AR playback of the emerging MPEG video-based point cloud compression standard, is a comprehensive and concise look at the prospects for delivering immersive experiences to mobile devices, using the currently available hardware.Reflecting the rapidly growing interest in augmented and virtual reality experiences, the authors are part of a research team working on new standards and their implementation. MPEG (ISO/IEC SC29 WG11) has developed an ambitious programme for the compression and transmission of time-varying, three dimensional objects using a technique known as point-cloud coding. Once decoded, these objects can be easily incorporated into VR or AR productions. The proposed technique is known as V-PCC, for video point cloud coding. A clever feature of the coding is that it takes advantage of existing video coding technology, such as H.264/MPEG-4 AVC or HEVC. Decoders for these codecs are already found in today’s smartphones, so this should accelerate the time to market of the new technology as well as delivering high compression efficiency and image quality.
The paper will be presented in the conference at 15.30 on Saturday 14 September. The trophy will be presented during the IBC Awards Ceremony on Sunday 15 September, which will also see the new Social Responsibility and Young Pioneer Awards revealed for the first time, alongside the IBC Innovation Awards and the International Honour for Excellence. All IBC visitors are welcomed at the Awards Ceremony, which is free.
