first_imgThe Government of Liberia, through the Ministry of Health, and its partners, are meeting to discuss how to build a post-Ebola resilient healthcare delivery system in Liberia.It is no secret that the nation’s health sector completely collapsed in 2014 when the deadly EDV tested the “gains” that health stakeholders boasted they had attained before Ebola struck.The 3-day meeting, which is being held at the Paynesville City Hall, is aimed at assessing the nation’s healthcare system and also to arrive at a consensus on an investment plan for the health sector.The meeting, being attended by local and international partners, including the World Health Organization (WHO), European Union (EU), United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and World Bank (WB), will validate the country’s health system assessment report as a result of the outbreak of the Ebola virus disease (EVD) and also build consensus on finalizing the post-Ebola investment plan for the sector as the nation moves toward building a resilient health system.According to the chairman of the Planning Committee for the meeting, Mr. Momolu V.O. Sirleaf, “the objectives of the meeting are to review and validate the health system assessment report; further review and refine critical investment areas for building a resilient health system and build consensus on the Investment and Transitional Health Plans.”“The meeting would also offer an opportunity for the country’s stakeholders to provide inputs into the national assessment findings that were undertaken by the Ministry of Health in order to provide key decisions in developing the health sector post-Ebola plan,” he further stated.The validation plan will build upon the 10-year Health Plan developed and launched by the government in 2011. Mr. Sirleaf clarified that the post-Ebola plan would be an add-on to the 10-year health plan.At the formal opening of the meeting yesterday, Deputy Health Minister Yah M. Zorlia, stated that prior to the Ebola outbreak, Liberia was successfully implementing its 10-year health program with some level of good progress. According to her, notable among the “gains” was the attainment of the Millennium Development Goal Four (MDG4), which is the under-five mortality rate reduction. In 2013, Liberia received praises from international bodies, including the United Nations, for meeting the MDG4.The nation had already gone three years into the implementation of the 10-year plan and stakeholders had planned to meet in October 2014 to evaluate the performance of the first three years when Ebola struck.“In March 2014 the Ebola outbreak started. This led to the breakdown of essential health services in Liberia,” Mrs. Zorlia added. She further stated that the EVD outbreak exposed weaknesses in the health sector and the healthcare delivery system of the country.“This needs to be addressed so that we can avoid the reversal of the gains we have made thus far; as well as build a health system that is able to withstand any future threats,” she stressed.The Minister of Health, Dr. Walter T. Gwenigale, assembled a team of health technocrats, who began planning for building a resilient health sector back in October 2014. The 10-year plan’s cost for the next seven years run into several millions of United States dollars.Affirming the Investment Plan, Dr. Gwenigale said, “This investment plan for building a resilient health system in Liberia represents an effort arising from the experience of the Ebola virus disease.“It highlights the Government’s priorities in re-building the health system to ensure it has the capacity, not only to provide the expected essential health services for the people of Liberia, but also able to identify and appropriately respond to future health threats of whatever form.”The Health Minister told the audience that President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf was awaiting the final document that would emerge from the conference. He further disclosed that the document is one of the papers that the President might take along with her to a donor conference to be held in Washington, D.C. “So let’s work and finish it so she can take it with her and see what we can do to raise funds to build a better health system than we had before,” declared Dr. Gwenigale. Representatives of various health partners who made separates remarks at the opening, all pledged to work with the Ministry as it strives to build a resilient health sector.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgThe City of Fort St. John took part in National Health and Fitness Day for the first time as a number of events were held at the Pomeroy Sport Centre on Saturday. Among the events held were Zumba classes, wheelchair basketball instruction, fitness circuits, and kids fitness, among others.Recreation Programmer with the City of Fort St. John Marissa Jordan admitted the turnout was a little low the first time around but said the City intends on taking part next year again.“It’s a national initiative so communities all across the country are finding ways to celebrate the event and I think that’s something that everyone is going to be looking into for the future. Next year’s event will be June 4. It’s hopefully going to be a similar set up in terms of getting the fitness instructors back, and the health service providers back.”- Advertisement -The low attendance numbers are being attributed to the weather outside at the time, and the event being not well known as it’s the first time the City has held something in conjunction with National Health and Fitness day.Organizers however were happy with the collaboration efforts with the health and fitness providers as a full schedule of events were able to be planned.last_img read more

first_img23 July 2013After securing an impressive 153-run win over Sri Lanka in the first test in Galle, the Proteas have shifted their focus to the second and final test, which starts in Colombo on Thursday.There is plenty at stake and plenty of motivation for Hashim Amla and company to win the series, beginning with the fact that they would again take over as the world’s number one ranked test team should they secure a 2-0 series victory.Previous series in Sri LankaThe Proteas will also be seeking only their second series win in Sri Lanka. They previously won a three-match series 1-0 in 1993.In 2000, they shared a 1-1 draw in the three-test series, with the South African win coming by the narrow margin of one wicket.In 2000, the Sri Lankans scored an emphatic 2-0 series victory in two tests. Most recently, in 2006, they won 2-0 again, edging the Proteas by one wicket in the second test in Colombo.HungrySouth Africa’s vice-captain AB de Villiers said the squad is hungry and committed to finishing the tour off with a win, and will not back off despite the fact that the series can’t be lost.“It was great to have had a day off yesterday just to reflect and celebrate an amazing and special win,” he said after training on Tuesday. “In saying that, it’s not rocket science, there is a huge test coming up.“We would love to win the series 2-0, winning both the ODIs and tests would be special for us as a team.“It will be important for us to lay the foundation again on Thursday, like we did in the first test in Galle,” he said.“I thought we started really well and it gave us the freedom to express our talent over the five days.”VenueThe last three matches at the Sinhalese Sports Club (SSC) have been high-scoring draws, but De Villiers is hopeful the Proteas will make the most of the conditions on hand.“The general feeling in Sri Lanka is to bat first,” he said. “In the past there has been a little bit of juice in the wicket in the first session. You have to make it work for you if you lose the toss and bowl first.“From Sri Lanka’s point of view, they would like to get a result from this match and so do we. I think both teams will play positive cricket. That is what everyone wants.”Unwanted part of historyDe Villiers, Hashim Amla and Dale Steyn were an unwanted part of history when the Proteas’ were beaten by an innings and 153 runs in 2006 in a match which featured a world-record 624 run partnership between Kumar Sangakkara (285) and Mahela Jayawardene (309).This time around, the Proteas find themselves in a more favourable position heading into the match, and have shown they are equipped to deal with the challenges of playing on the sub-continent.‘A natural leader’A series win would be the perfect start for new captain Hashim Amla. “He has always been a natural leader,” De Villiers said of Amla. “He had a great start, I think he is going to have an amazing career as captain.“He has all the credentials, everything that you need to be a good leader. The whole team is right behind him.”SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

I’m not saying that this is a good or bad thing — it’s just the way I’m wired. Thus, when I see an announcement about a group of companies forming an alliance, I may be vaguely interested, but I typically don’t get overly excited, unless something catches my eye…Which leads us to today’s announcement that a group of like-minded companies have formed the Embedded Tools Alliance (ETA). The reason this particular announcement attracted my attention is that I know one of the players — Jacob Beningo, who is the founder of the Beningo Embedded Group. In addition to presenting numerous papers at the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) over the years, Jacob has kindly sat on a number of panels hosted by yours truly. This is, of course, one of the reasons for attending conferences in the first place: meeting one’s peers and networking furiously.So, what is the ETA and why have these companies formed it? Well, as we all know to our cost, the embedded developers’ toolbox is complex and involves many components: the IDE (Integrated Development Environment), compilers, debuggers, trace tools, test tools, debug and flash programming hardware, the target operating system, and the target middleware, to name but a few. Choosing the right components is enormously complex and prompts a huge number of questions, each of which takes time to answer and poses risk to the project’s success:Do they work on the same host OS? Which versions need to be used? How should they be configured? Do they interoperate correctly? Do they work together to produce an optimal result? Have they been validated? Has the combination of these components been validated or certified?Just to add to the fun and frivolity, the embedded marketplace is fragmented with a huge number of suppliers. Some large, vertically-integrated companies try to offer every component required, but the members of the ETA feel that this approach may stagnate innovation, limit choice, and prevent users from choosing best-in-class solutions that address the specific needs of their projects.Thus, the ETA’s mission is to help customers select the best components from a number of different suppliers, safe in the knowledge that the individual components are of the highest quality, proven to work together, and do exactly what’s required, thereby allowing users to concentrate on their development work rather than fighting with a disparate set of legacy tools and environments.ETA Manifesto The Embedded Tools Alliance is a collaboration of industry-leading independent embedded system vendors.Individually, our members offer high-quality solutions addressing at least one aspect of embedded software development. When combined together, our members’ offerings provide best-in-class solutions for embedded developers seeking the widest range of features to help complete their project on time, with the best possible technical results, and highest quality.Through technical collaboration, we ensure our products interoperate correctly, smoothly, and simply.Through marketing and sales, we promote our combined solutions to ensure we can offer our customers a superior choice of components to meet their specific requirements.ETA Members Members of the ETA are recognized industry leaders supporting a wide range of embedded microcontrollers from multiple vendors. They offer proven products and solutions with validated quality and interoperability whilst offering leading edge features, benefits, and support.

All that glitters is not gold An FPGA’s high computational power, low-power consumption, and flexibility come at a price — difficulty to program. They can be reprogrammed to fit any task but be generic enough to accommodate various undertakings. DL is evolving rapidly, and the same FPGA will fit new requirements without needing the next-generation silicon (which is typical with ASICs), thereby reducing the cost of ownership. They range from large to small devices. They can be used in data centers or in an internet of things (IoT) node. The only difference is the number of blocks they contain. They use less power than CPUs or GPUs — usually five to 10 times less average power for the same NN computation. Their recurring cost in data centers is lower. They are not limited to certain types of data. They can handle non-standard low precision more suitable to deliver higher throughput for DL. Continue Reading Previous WITTENSTEIN extend services for whole of Amazon FreeRTOSNext Infineon: Blockchain Security 2Go starter kit protects digital transactions I recently attended the 2018 Xilinx Development Forum (XDF) in Silicon Valley. While at this forum, I was introduced to a company called Mipsology , a startup in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) that claims to have solved the AI-related problems associated with field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). Mipsology was founded with a grand vision to accelerate the computation of any neural network (NN) with the highest performance achievable on FPGAs without the constraints inherent in their deployment.Mipsology demonstrated the ability to execute more than 20,000 images per second, running on the newly announced Alveo boards from Xilinx, and processing a collection of NNs, including ResNet50, InceptionV3, VGG19, among others. Introducing neural networks and deep learning Loosely modeled on the web of neurons in the human brain, a neural network is at the foundation of deep learning (DL), a complex mathematical system that can learn tasks on its own. By looking at many examples or associations, a NN can learn connections and relationships faster than a traditional recognition program. The process of configuring a NN to perform a specific task based on learning millions of samples of the same type is called training .For example, an NN might listen to many vocal samples and use DL to learn to “recognize” the sounds of specific words. This NN could then sift through a list of new vocal samples, and correctly identify samples containing words it has learned, using a technique called inference .Despite its complexity, DL is based on performing simple operations — mostly additions and multiplications — in the billions or trillions. The computational demand to perform such operations is daunting. More specifically, the computing needs to execute DL inferences are greater than those for DL training. Whereas DL training must be performed only one time, an NN, once trained, must perform inference again and again for each new sample it receives. Four choices to accelerate deep learning inference Over time, the engineering community resorted to four different computing devices to process NNs. In increasing order of processing power and power consumption, and in decreasing order of flexibility/adaptability, these devices encompass: central processing units (CPUs), graphics processing units (GPUs), FPGAs, and application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs). The table below summarizes the main differences among the four computing devices. Comparison of CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, and ASICs for DL computing (Source: Lauro Rizzatti) CPUs are based on the Von Neuman architecture. While flexible (the reason for their existence), CPUs are affected by long latency because of memory accesses consuming several clock cycles to execute a simple task. When applied to tasks that benefit from the lowest latencies such as NN computation and, specifically, DL training and inference, they are the poorest choice.GPUs provide high computation throughput at the cost of decreased flexibility. Furthermore, GPUs consume significant power that demands cooling, making them less than ideal for deployment in data centers.While custom ASICs may seem to be an ideal solution, they have their own set of issues. Developing an ASIC takes years. DL and NN are evolving rapidly with ongoing breakthroughs, making last year’s technology irrelevant. Plus, to compete with a CPU or a GPU, an ASIC would need to use a large silicon area using the thinnest process node technology. This makes the upfront investment expensive, without any guarantee of long-term relevancy. All considered, ASICs are effective for specific tasks.FPGA devices have emerged as the best possible choice for inference. They are fast, flexible, power efficient, and offer a good solution for data processing in data centers, especially in the fast-moving world of DL, at the edge of the network and under the desk of AI scientists.The largest FPGAs available today include millions of simple Boolean operators, thousands of memories and DSPs, and several CPU ARM cores. All these resources work in parallel — each clock tick triggers up to millions of simultaneous operations — resulting in trillions of operations performed at each second. The processing required by DL maps quite well onto FPGA resources.FPGAs have other advantages over CPUs and GPUs used for DL, including the following:last_img read more

As a person, he has this fire in him – everything is done to the full,” Finland international Toivo told the Manchester Evening News.”I think he is great at creating fighting spirit in the team and encouraging players to be the best they can be. He has a lot of knowledge about football and understands the game really well.”There was a lot of concentration on first touches and observing the play with Mark in training: where and how you took the first touch. He played as a midfielder when he was a player and he often said ‘play what you see’. By that, he also meant to keep it simple and to not try difficult stuff.”He was really like a friend.

first_imgBrittany HobsonAPTN NewsPeople in Manitoba are set to hit the polls next week for the 42nd provincial election.The NDP, Liberals and Green parties are attempting to dethrone the governing Progressive Conservatives.While many promises have been made from all four parties, what has seemingly been missing is what each party will do for Indigenous people in the province.Brian Pallister says his government has spent the last three years working to repair relationships with First Nations.During a press conference he cited the Tories work on the Lake Manitoba and Lake St. Martin Outlet Channels.“We’re moving on flood protection projects and give people a chance to grow in their own communities,” he said.“We’ve been working really hard on the duty to consult framework to make sure we’re involving communities and individuals [to] have the chance to be involved in dialogue from top to bottom when we make changes.”But Pallister’s consultation process was heavily criticized at a First Nation town hall meeting on the flood project last month.Pallister has also come under fire for axing several agreements with the Manitoba Metis Federation over Hydro projects.Pallister committed to advocating for Indigenous women and girls.“I spent a decade of my life standing up for Indigenous women’s rights in respect to matrimonial property,” he said referring to his work as an MP before becoming party leader.If re-elected, the Conservatives say they will address the 231 calls for justice from the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls through it’s Gender-Based Violence Committee of Cabinet, which was launched in December.The NDP is headed by Wab Kinew.He says his party is committed to creating a cabinet committee to act on the Inquiry’s findings.“What I can tell you is it’s not going to be me overseeing the recommendations it’s going to be folks like Nahanni Fontaine, Bernadette Smith, Amanda Lathlin who have lived experience of what it’s like to be an Indigenous woman in Manitoba,” said Kinew at a party news conference.Kinew is set to make history is his party wins.He will be the first First Nations man to become premier of Manitoba.But his campaign hasn’t been without controversy.In 2017, a woman came forward with allegations of domestic assault against Kinew, which stemmed from 2003.Kinew has denied the allegations.Kinew has repeatedly turned down requests for an interview from APTN News to discuss the campaign and the allegations.The Tories have made this the focus of attack ads over the past month.Healthcare is the main plank in the NDP platform, especially for the north.“That involves more clinics, health centres and specialists being located in the north. We’ll work with northern communities including northern First Nations to bring those services closer to home,” said Kinew.Green Party leader James Beddome has also stated the importance of healthcare, especially when it comes to youth in remote northern communities.God’s Lake First Nation recently called a state of emergency after four young people died by suicide over the summer.Beddome said his party will take advantage of telehealth options but admits this isn’t always possible.“It’s even a challenge in some of those communities because even the internet is not reliable so we’d certainly have to look at that. But there is going to be a need to have more psychologists up there,” he said.The Liberals plan to open 24/7 safe spaces for women fleeing domestic violence.Party leader Dougald Lamont said if his party forms government they will create a Manitoba police service with an Indigenous-lead unit.He added addressing many of the MMIWG Inquiry’s recommendations starts with tackling poverty.“We’re proposing a basic minimum income for all Manitobans that would basically end Employment and Income Assistance,” said Lamont.“The goal is to get every Manitoban out of poverty within four years. First Nations are Manitobans as well so we would partner with the federal government to make sure that is working on reserve as well.”Voters hits the polls on Sept. 10.bhobson@aptn.ca@bhobs22last_img read more
