Saskatchewan finishes 201718 with smaller deficit still 303M in red

first_imgREGINA – A good crop helped the Saskatchewan government finish the last fiscal year with a deficit almost $400 million smaller than initially forecast.The province finished 2017-18 spending $303 million more than it took in. But that’s $393 million better than what was projected in last year’s budget.Finance Minister Donna Harpauer said Thursday that a good harvest resulted in lower crop insurance claims. The government had a $429 million decrease in expenses primarily due to a year-over-year reduction in farmer payouts.“It is definitely a good position that we’re in from the last budget, however, there’s a lot of things that are very unpredictable in budgets,” Harpauer said. “Budgets include a lot of entities and what strengthened last year’s budget, quite frankly, was largely crop insurance.”The increase in provincial sales tax to six per cent from five per cent meant the government took in $808 million more in PST revenue compared to a year earlier. But that was $36 million lower than the budget forecast.“That has worked obviously quite well in helping us get back to balance and making our fiscal situation much stronger,” Harpauer said.Oil and gas revenue contributed $657 million — an increase of $85 million over the previous year, but lower than forecast in the budget. Potash revenue totalled $309 million — up $68 million from a year earlier and $48 million higher than the budget forecast.Opposition NDP critic Trent Wotherspoon noted the PST hike hit families hard.“They may look at the short term and think they’re collecting some more revenue there, but what they’re doing is they’re hurting our economy, they’re creating job loss,” Wotherspoon said.Harpauer said her government is on track to return the province to a balanced budget by 2019-20. The new budget released in April projects a deficit of $365 million this year and a thin surplus of $6 million in 2019-20.Harpauer wasn’t prepared to update the deficit outlook for this year and said there’s concern with Wednesday’s announcement that the U.S. Department of Commerce is launching a national security investigation looking into uranium imports.Canada produced 14 kilotonnes of the ore in 2016, and all of that came from Saskatchewan.“This is part of the uncertainty that is with every budget,” Harpauer said. “And this particular budget that we’re in now, trade is a huge concern for our government and our province because we’re a trade reliant province.”— Follow @RyanBMcKenna on Twitterlast_img read more

High cost of dental services prompting some patients to seek alternative options

MONTREAL — An unaffordable price tag kept Melanie Laxson out of the dentist’s chair until the pain became unbearable.With no access to insurance, the 38-year-old says there’s no way she could afford the full cost of a dentist.Canadians spend about $12 billion per year on dental services, but six million people annually avoid dentists because of costs, said a 2014 report by the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences.According to the Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association, some 25 million Canadians, representing 80 per cent of working families, have coverage under extended health insurance which covers dental and prescription drugs, hospital and medical expenses not covered by provincial government plans.Yet insurance typically doesn’t cover the entire dental bill, often leaving patients with large out-of-pocket expenses.Experts say some patients make dental visits a little more affordable by spreading out the frequency of visits, contacting dentists in lower-cost neighbourhoods, discussing alternative treatment plans with the dentist and negotiating lower prices.Laxson turned to a teaching clinic operated by McGill University’s Faculty of Dentistry in Montreal.As she waited for the first of several procedures to extract teeth and get fitted with dentures, Laxson said the clinic gives people with limited means the ability to get the care they need to relieve persistent pain.“When your teeth hurt, it really hurts,” she said.Dr. John Drummond, a Montreal dentist who also teaches at the university, says patients can save about 30 per cent depending on the procedure.However, the tradeoff for lower fees is more time in the dentist’s chair, as dentist-supervised students take longer to perform procedures than trained professionals.He said access to care is an increasing challenge as the cost of dentistry rises while wages remain stable.“There is definitely a section in the middle that doesn’t get to the dentist,” he said in a clinic room with the latest dental equipment.Drummond believes most dentists charge a little above or below the provincial fee guide that lists recommended prices for thousands of procedures.Patients can check by contacting a dentist and comparing the fee associated with a procedure’s specific code with the suggested provincial fee guide.Provinces make fee guides available at public libraries, while some have abbreviated lists on the dental board’s website. Patients can also call the provincial board itself.Pricing differentials are often dictated by the dentists costs to run an office, including rent.But dental groups warn that it’s difficult to shop for a dentist based on fees because most people have difficulty making sense of costs among the thousands of codes in provincial fee guides.The Ontario Dental Association says dentistry isn’t a commodity so treatments should be patient-specific and the result of an exam and diagnosis.“Because dental health varies between people, there really is no average treatment that applies to everyone across the board,” said association president Dr. LouAnn Visconti.The incoming president of the Canadian Dental Association says dentists have no obligation to respect provincial fee guides.Dr. Mitch Taillon of Saskatchewan says cost is a factor for some patients but feeling comfortable with the dentist, technology, convenient hours and location are usually more important.“In my experience cost is one of the factors, it’s not the biggest one,” he said in an interview.Dr. Barry Dolman, president of the Quebec Order of Dentists, said most dentists are willing to help patients with limited means and no insurance to find affordable treatment options.“I think most professionals on a one-by-one basis do have a heart to be able to moderate fees,” he said.But many dentists are reluctant to negotiate.Dr. Drummond says he sometimes works out deals with a patient in need, but he won’t haggle.“I don’t like offering discounted dentistry because then the patients who are paying the normal price are getting short-changed, so I have my fees very up front as being the same for everybody.”Follow @RossMarowits on Twitter. read more

Questions swirl after Trump admin says tax will pay for wall

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump is promising Mexico will pay for his massive border wall. On Thursday, his administration finally suggested how: a 20 per cent tax on products imported from south of the border.The new measure could be part of a comprehensive tax reform package that Trump and Congress will work out, the White House said. But there was great ambiguity about the proposal. White House officials later clarified that the tax was but one possible way Trump could finance the wall.Much was left unanswered. Would Mexico be footing the bill or American consumers? What items would become more expensive? Is this even legal?Some of the details Trump’s proposal still has to work out:IS IT A TAX, A TARIFF OR SOMETHING ELSE?It’s unclear.The White House said Congress’ tax overhaul would place a 20 per cent tax on imports from any country enjoying a trade surplus with the United States. In other words, countries selling more goods and service to the U.S. than buying from it. The idea is to rebalance the playing field for U.S. companies by discouraging Americans from importing.The idea appears to overlap with a plan House Republicans are pushing called “border adjustment.” Under this plan, the U.S. would refrain from taxing American companies’ exports, but would tax imports.The new revenues are projected to top $1 trillion over a decade. The money had been envisioned as an offset for lowering U.S. corporate income tax rates, though House Republicans say it could also pay for a wall.Trump, however, recently said he didn’t like the “border adjustment” idea.WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR AMERICANS?Mexican products would become more expensive.That means pricier tequila, but also things Americans need: cars, eyeglasses and many basic groceries.A Toyota Camry? About $1,000 more, according to Jim Lentz, CEO of Toyota North America, noting that a quarter of the car’s parts are imported.U.S. exporters are behind the House plan because it would reduce their taxes.Here’s the flip side: Importers, including big retailers and consumer electronics firms, say the higher prices for Mexican products could hurt sales. And that means American jobs.Retailers such as Wal-Mart also could face higher tax burdens.WOULD MEXICO REALLY BE PAYING?Not quite.The U.S. could recoup some of the wall’s costs by changing the tax and trade policies with Mexico. But the money wouldn’t necessarily be coming from Mexican taxpayers or the Mexican government.While the tax would land first on companies exporting from Mexico, the costs would likely be passed on to consumers. That leaves Americans footing much of the likely bill.Trump has said he’s OK with being “reimbursed” at a later point because he is keen to start building the wall immediately.WOULD IT RAISE ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY FOR THE WALL?Probably.Various estimates put the wall’s cost at up to $15 billion.House Republicans expect their plan to pull in much more than that in its first year. They say that could easily cover the costs of the wall.IS IT LEGAL?To be determined.The U.S. has a range of obligations under the North American Free Trade Agreement and at the World Trade Organization. And Mexico is likely to challenge any new tax that penalizes its economy.Trump has said he plans to renegotiate NAFTA. Mexico, however, is under no obligation to soften the agreement for his sake.Other countries may also object, if their products and services are targeted.Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, said the border adjustment is essentially a tariff that would be struck down by the WTO if it targets Mexico.HOW WOULD THIS AFFECT THE ECONOMY?A topic of great dispute.The White House said the plan would increase U.S. wages, help U.S. businesses and consumers, and deliver “huge economic benefits.” With so much of the plan ill-defined, it’s impossible to substantiate those claims.Any turbulence in the U.S.-Mexican trade relationship could have implications for the entire world.Mexico is the second-largest exporter to the United States, after China. The United States imported roughly $271 billion of goods from Mexico during the first 11 months of 2016, according to the Commerce Department, and ran a trade deficit of almost $60 billion.DO REPUBLICANS LIKE TRUMP’S PLAN?Not all of them.Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan said on Twitter it would be a “tax on Americans to pay for the wall.” Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said he was “mucho sad” and that “any policy proposal which drives up costs of Corona, tequila or margaritas is a big-time bad idea.”Even Trump’s pick for commerce secretary, Wilbur Ross, dismissed the idea of using tariffs as a trade ploy.Republicans have traditionally hailed themselves as the party of free trade.WHAT OTHER WAYS COULD TRUMP GET MEXICO TO PAY?During the campaign, Trump floated a number of possibilities without committing to any in particular.He proposed changing a rule under the USA Patriot Act to block some of the roughly $25 billion in remittances that Mexicans living in the U.S. send home each year. He said he would refuse to free up the money until Mexico agrees to pay the U.S. between $5 billion and $10 billion.Opponents of that plan say Mexicans in the U.S. would likely find other ways to send money back. They could take cash with them when travelling, wire money to a non-Mexican bank or use off-the-books transfers that are difficult to police.Trump also suggested increasing visa fees for Mexicans to raise money, or cancelling business and tourist visas issued to Mexicans until their country pays for the wall.___AP Business Writer Tom Krisher in Detroit and writers Erica Werner and Stephen Ohlemacher in Washington contributed to this report.___Reach Josh Boak on Twitter at http://twitter.com/joshboakReach Josh Lederman on Twitter at http://twitter.com/joshledermanAP by Josh Lederman And Josh Boak, The Associated Press Posted Jan 27, 2017 1:50 am MDT Last Updated Jan 27, 2017 at 7:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Questions swirl after Trump admin says tax will pay for wall A man stops to read headlines, many featuring U.S. President Donald Trump’s actions to jumpstart construction on a promised border wall and his insistence that Mexico will foot the bill, in Mexico City, Thursday, Jan. 26, 2017.

SMMT response to motoring taxation report

The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) welcomes the Transport Select Committee’s review into motoring taxation and charges, for highlighting the need for a clear and transparent approach to environmental taxation. SMMT agrees with the report that consumers and industry need a consistent and long-term framework for motoring taxation across all vehicle sectors. New vehicles being delivered to market are cleaner and emit on average nearly 20% less CO2 than in 1997. New legislation to mandate tailpipe CO2 limits, and the development of an industry technology roadmap to develop a market for ultra-low carbon vehicles, means that CO2 from vehicles will continue to fall. SMMT response to Transport Select Committee review of motoring taxation and charges For more information on the UK motor industry, visit www.smmt.co.uk or www.motorindustryfacts.com. “Government must work with industry and other stakeholders openly on a new consistent and transparent long term model for motoring taxation that is fair and helps industry to deliver low-carbon targets,” said Paul Everitt, SMMT chief executive. Any change to policy must reconcile revenue, environmental and UK industrial goals while achieving buy-in and trust from the consumer.” 2. Why is the automotive sector important to the UK economy?·          27 car and CV manufacturers operate in the UK producing 1.7 million vehicles·          £51b turnover and £9.5 billion value added·          Over 800,000 UK jobs·          UK automotive manufacturing supplies over 100 markets worldwide, offering some resilience to UK issues·          New cars emit less CO2 than older models – average new car CO2 emissions have fallen 19% in the last decade The energy needed to produce each vehicle is down 12%, water use is down 9% and waste to landfill is down 25%, compared to 2006 performance.  CO2 emissions per vehicle produced have fallen 14% in the last year and by 45% since 1999. Almost 10,000 tonnes of waste have been prevented from entering landfill sites. For more details, download SMMT’s ninth annual Sustainability Report from the SMMT website www.smmt.co.uk/category/reports/. As a consequence of this, the tax income for government from the current CO2-based Vehicle Excise Duty system as well as Company Car taxation will be eroded. It is imperative that this does not lead to constant adjustments and increases preventing clear long-term signals to consumers on their choices and trust in the system, as with the latest changes. Notes:1. At €20 bn, the automotive sector is Europe’s largest investor in R&D, driving industry forward and helping deliver more sustainable motoring for the 21st century. Technological innovation has helped car and CV manufacturers slash CO2 and air quality emissions from vehicles. New diesel cars for example emit 95% less soot from the tailpipe than those made 15 years ago and average new car CO2 has been cut by 19% since 1997.

Mens volleyball Topranked Buckeyes on the road again at Saint Francis

Ohio State senior libero and outside hitter Gabriel Domecus receives a serve from UCLA on Jan. 7 at St. John Arena. Credit: Walt Middleton | Courtesy of OSU AthleticsAfter a pair of victories last weekend against No. 10 Stanford (3-2), the No. 1 Ohio State men’s volleyball team (5-0) plays on the road again this Friday against Saint Francis (3-2).The Buckeyes will be looking to extend their current 28 game winning streak, a streak that includes 13 straight true road wins, with a win against the Red Flash. OSU has won the last 10 matches against Saint Francis dating back to a loss in 2010, the only win for the Red Flash in the two teams’ 30-game history.“I expect it to be a battle there. They’re looking forward to us coming over as the reigning national champ and the No. 1 team in the country, so it’s going to be a great atmosphere,” coach Pete Hanson said. “Our guys got to be ready. We’ve talked about this numerous times that every gym you roll into is going to come after you with a target on your back and those kids are going to be ready.”The Red Flash come into the matchup off a win against Fort Wayne, which went to five sets, last Friday. This comes after a loss in straight sets to No. 13 Ball State.Saint Francis has three attackers ranked in the top five in kills in the Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (EIVA). Redshirt freshman outside hitter Michael Fisher trails redshirt junior outside hitter Stephen Braswell in the rankings with 55 and 59 kills, respectively. Senior opposite hitter Jeff Hogan tops the conference leaderboard with 73 kills.“They’ve always been a tough team to play because they’re kind of different from everyone else in the way that they’re playing,” junior outside hitter Nicolas Szerszen said.Saint Francis will have to find a way to contain Szerszen and senior opposite hitter Miles Johnson this weekend as both Szerszen and Johnson are ranked nationally in points per set at fourth and fifth, respectively.Szerszen has also gain national recognition on his own after being named the National Player of the Week on January 10 by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVIC). He was also dubbed Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (MIVA) Offensive Player of the Week.The Buckeyes and the Red Flash start action at 7:30 p.m. on Friday in DeGol Arena. read more

Wind farms less harmful to seabirds than first thought

Seabirds were found to collide with turbines just once every four months Credit:Natural England  Dr Aly McCluskie, Senior Conservation Scientist, RSPB said: “There is currently much uncertainty in our understanding of how birds behave in the vicinity of wind turbines.“The ORJIP bird collision project has collected an unprecedented amount of data on the behaviour of seabirds in and around an offshore wind farm.“The project has been a collaboration involving industry, government agencies and seabird specialists and as such is exactly the type of project we need far more of if we are to realise our ambitions for offshore renewable deployment at scale and in harmony with nature.”In March 2018, offshore wind generated 12 per cent of the UK’s total energy, its highest contribution to date. But in the past wind farm expansion has been hindered by fears the fields of turbines were harming wildlife.Tim Frayling, Senior Environmental Specialist Ornithology, Natural England said: “Natural England acknowledge the significant achievement of providing empirical evidence of bird avoidance in relation to an offshore wind farm for the first time, and the progress in starting to address some key questions in this area.“The proof of concept has been successfully demonstrated and we would look forward to seeing similar studies in different locations, including wind farms closer to seabird colonies.” Wind farms are far less harmful to birds that first thought, the biggest ever study has shown, because seabirds actively change their flight path to avoid them.Researchers used radar and video to monitor seabirds flying near the Vattenfall’s Thanet offshore wind farm in the English Channel over a two year period.They found that birds were present near the turbines in just two per cent of the 600,000 videos shot during the period, and they recorded just six collisions – an average of one every four months.Previously it was thought the number of birds being killed by wind farms was more than double that figure.During The Offshore Renewables Joint Industry Programme (ORJIP) bird collision avoidance study, seabirds were observed to exhibited avoidance behavior and change their flight path to avoid the turbines.

One, about hiring practices in the country. I can talk to him about race relations. I’m prepared to debate race relations and who have contributed to this country, which party has contributed to worsening race relations in Guyana. I can talk to him about this fallacy- I’m prepared to debate the fallacy and the myth that they keep perpetuating that they’ve done more for Afro-Guyanese than the People’s Progressive Party (PPP),” he told media operatives today during a press conference at his Church Street, Georgetown office.According to Jagdeo, he is prepared to match the record of the People’s National Congress (PNC) –the party which Granger is affiliated with for over 50 years- from 1964 to 1992 and 2015 to present with that of the PPP’s 23 years in office.“He said he’s been in the PNC for over 50 years. I’m prepared to match the record of the PNC from ’64 to ’92 and then from 2015 to now, against the PPP’s 23 years in office on several practices, access to well black owned businesses, etc. and I’m sure you will see a pattern where Afro-Guyanese have fared better in that period under the PPP than ever under PNC rule and I’m prepared to debate that openly, publicly, using records to destroy this myth” he asserted.Addressing allegations advanced by proponents of the incumbent Administration that 400 Afro-Guyanese, of which a list was provided, were killed under the PPP Administration, Jadgeo said that this is another myth.He posited that the list was “spurious,” and also told this publication that if one examines it “you will see the policemen and the soldiers killed by the bandits, who were on that list. You will see the bandits themselves including Fine Man and all the others on that list itself. You will see Indo-Guyanese names on the list, a large number of them. You’ll see almost everybody, victims, perpetrators, policeman, everybody on that list of 400 and they publish it shamelessly because they thrive on the myth, the lies that people will not examine that list and if anyone has, I would just urge the media itself, and you will see, disaggregate the names, go after the names one by one and you will see the lies they are peddling.”Ever since the coalition Administration took power in 2015, there have been many claims advanced by Afro-Guyanese supporters of the PPP that they are being discriminated against and even targeted by Government- especially those who worked within the regime.In fact, former Head of the Presidential Secretariat, Dr Roger Luncheon has been recorded in the media highlighting issues where a number of Government employees were being targeted because of their ethnicity and political affiliations.PPP’s Executive member Dr Roger Luncheon“We have made this point that black members of the People’s Progressive Party…are unusually exposed and treated to the rampant discrimination of this Granger administration. It’s historical. In the olden days in the PNC, it happened and in the more modern days under the name of the APNU and the coalition, it continues…Black members of the People’s Progressive Party Civic, who are employed working in the government service, are unusually targeted by this administration,” Dr Luncheon had said.He noted that the issue was brought to the attention of the administration and “particular Ministers in the administration” while outlining that “the silence is deafening.”Dr Luncheon also criticized civil society for staying silent on the issue, noting that Guyanese are condoning the actions of the APNU-AFC Administration by not speaking out against what he described as a “travesty.” read more

Curiosity dévoile un nouveau panorama de Mars à un milliard de pixels

first_imgCuriosity dévoile un nouveau panorama de Mars à un milliard de pixelsLa NASA a diffusé une toute nouvelle vue de la planète Mars, réalisée grâce à des clichés pris par le rover Curiosity. D’une résolution encore inégalée, le panorama offre un niveau de détail impressionnant et la possibilité de se balader sur la planète rouge. Cela faisait longtemps que Curiosity n’avait pas dévoilé de photos de Mars. Mais l’attente valait visiblement le coup ! C’est en tout cas ce que suggère la dernière merveille dévoilée par la NASA. Grâce de nouvelles vues capturées par le rover, les équipes de l’agence spatiale américaine ont réussi à concevoir un panorama de la planète rouge d’une définition impressionnante.Selon les informations dévoilées, la vue offre pas moins de 1,3 milliards de pixels et combine presque 900 clichés pris par trois des caméras du robot roulant, la caméra téléphoto de l’instrument MastCam (850 photos), la caméra à grand angle du même instrument (21) et enfin la caméra de navigation (25 en noir et blanc). Tous les clichés ont été pris entre le 5 octobre et le 16 novembre dernier et soigneusement collectés. C’est ensuite Bob Deen du Multi-Mission Image Processing Laboratory de la NASA qui s’est chargé d’assembler le tout.”Cela donne une sensation du lieu et montre réellement les capacités des caméras. Vous pouvez voir le contexte et aussi zoomer sur les détails très fins”, a expliqué le scientifique cité dans un communiqué de la NASA. En effet, la très haute résolution de la vue permet d’observer finement le moindre détail de là où est passé le rover il y a quelques mois.

Les observateurs ont ainsi la possibilité de s’immerger davantage dans la mission et de zoomer à loisir sur les détails. On peut même observer à l’horizon le fameux Mont Sharp, but important de la mission du rover. La nouvelle mosaïque montre en outre les effets d’illumination issus des variations au fil de la journée martienne. Elle donne également un aperçu des variations dans la clarté de l’atmosphère dues à la concentration en poussière au cours du mois durant lequel les photos ont été prises. Actuellement, Curiosity est en chemin pour se rapprocher du fameux Mont Sharp mais il devrait mettre encore plusieurs mois avant de l’atteindre.Le 21 juin 2013 à 17:40 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Alienware VR Parties in LA

first_img I guess it’s a tradition now that one night during E3 I wind up at a weirdly hip nighttime Los Angeles party put on by a tech company. Fortunately, the Alienware party kicking off the gaming PC manufacturer’s new line of products felt much classier compared to the surreal fever dream of UploadVR’s shindig last year, which makes considering the two companies. No longer was I painfully aware of the oil-and-water mixture of the “cool” and “dorky” party members. Instead, everyone pretty much blended together in the neat outdoor California art party space Undercurrent.Oh, and the products were pretty nifty, too. Attendees entered raffles to win the new fancy new accessories Alienware showed off at the conference. Consumers can opt for the $50 Advanced Gaming Mouse with fast DPI sensitivity switching or the similar but premium $90 Elite Gaming Mouse. The keyboard also comes in two variants: the $90 mechanical Advanced Gaming Keyboard and the backlit $120 Pro Gaming Keyboard with stored macros. But the star products were the AIienware 25 Gaming Monitor and new Alienware 51 gaming PC. The 25 is a 1080p 240Hz monitor with a 1-millisecond response time. It starts at $500 but for an extra $200 you can add Nvidia’s G-Sync or AMD’s FreeSync. And it’s a great monitor for showing off the power of the 51 Intel Core-X compatible, coming this summer. The machine uses Ryzen’s bleeding-edge Ryzen Threadripper (how metal is that?) chips. A top of the line custom order could use 10-core i9 7900X processors and triple AMD Radeon 580s Crossfire graphics cards. The new Dell Inspiron Gaming Desktop also uses Ryzen but in a more modest form.To best demonstrate these devices, Alienware set up several demo stations throughout the party. Some were VR or AR experiences; others were games like small Square Enix-published projects Oh My God Heads and Battalion 1944. But the game I went for was the John Wick VR game we check out back at New York Comic-Con. Virtual reality first-person bullet ballets, when they aren’t blurry, are still great! And since the party was also sponsored by John Wick 2 on Blu-ray, I finished the night drinking a “John Wick Manhattan” with my food truck tacos while folks won copies of the fantastic action film to take home by answering obscure Alienware trivia. The later things went, the weirder the Alienware party got, as parties tend to do. Music got louder and more 90s, a woman playing John Wick VR wound up on her knees and just stayed there, and I’m party sure I saw Chris Hardwick and Fred Savage. But it could have been way more off the rails given this town and this industry. Considering E3 hasn’t even officially started yet, low-key crazy is probably for the best.

Four Candidates on Slate to Join ADC Board

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR ADC members will have an opportunity to vote on four new candidates to the association’s board of directors during the annual business meeting at next month’s National Summit in Washington.The elections will mark the last phase in the expansion of the board, with the number of directors increasing from 14 to 15, including the past president, following June’s elections. The board’s expansion from 13 directors was approved during a special vote of the membership in March 2015.The four new candidates for the board are:Kathleen Ferguson, senior advisor, The Roosevelt GroupSusan Morris, principal, Booz Allen HamiltonKevin Sullivan, executive director, Utah Defense AllianceJohn Walker, specialist leader, DeloitteIf elected, the new directors would serve three-year terms.In addition, the nominations committee has recommended that the terms of the board president and vice president be extended by one year. Michael Cooper, chairman of the Oklahoma Strategic Military Planning Commission, has served as president since 2014. The nominations committee also has recommended his board seat be extended by one year. He was first elected to the board in 2010.William Parry, city manager for Gatesville, Texas, was elected in March to serve as vice president. Parry was first elected to the board in 2014.This year’s board slate reflects the association’s recent effort to overhaul its process for nominating board members and criteria for selecting candidates. Under the new selection criteria, the nominations committee seeks board members that represent a spectrum of roles critical to ADC, including community advocates, experts in installation management or redevelopment, leaders in military-community partnerships and individuals with knowledge of national defense policy issues.The annual membership meeting will take place Wednesday, June 22 from 7:15 to 8 a.m. at the Capital Hilton.

With five offices located across the state of New Jersey, our practice maintains millions of radiological patient records, including 20 years worth of electronic medical records (EMRs).At Princeton Radiology, we are improving patient care and making data easier to share between offices and physicians. Digital images have changed the way our offices operate. These images provide a clearer end result, enabling our nurses and physicians to make diagnoses, provide answers and ultimately construct treatment plans for our patients much more quickly.From an IT perspective, digital imaging is easier to preserve than film because it doesn’t age as quickly and stays viable for longer periods of time. Thus, the decision to transition to digital was an easy one. As we expanded our digital capabilities and the number of EMRs rose, we quickly realized our data storage capacity and availability couldn’t keep up with our growing needs.Need for Storage and Availability Leads to Growing PainsThe company’s legacy storage system was hampered by this rapid data growth and we clearly needed a new storage system that lowered our total cost of ownership. We projected that the capacity limits of the legacy drives would soon render our system obsolete, and implementing a more efficient system with faster access to our data was a must.It became crystal clear that we needed to make a change in order to store all of the EMRs for long- and short-term duration of the patients’ care and be able to take on new projects in the future. A new GE Centricity picture archiving and communication system (PACS) was one of the projects that required greater system storage capacity to accommodate newly created digital images.Sharing patient information with hospitals and medical practices requires the ability to make that information available instantaneously, and in turn requires immediate data recovery in the event of an accidental loss or deletion. Our legacy system struggled to recover and protect patient data through the inefficient 12- to 14-hour recovery process it took to restore from tape. Recovery times for images and medical records lagged, offering us spotty reliability when we needed it. The best-case scenario for our backup recovery point objective (RPO), the length of time required to restore the system after a disaster, was 24 hours. For a provider in the healthcare industry, this was unacceptable. Princeton Radiology’s staff requires access to patient data 24/7 in order to provide premium care to our patients.Legacy System Unable to AdaptAt Princeton Radiology, we were facing data accessibility challenges that many other hospitals are now coming to realize. The process of data management grew as a concern for our legacy system because patient data has such a long lifecycle and can become inactive, or infrequently accessed, over extended periods of time. Patients can come and go, but the electronic data and digital images that are part of their electronic patient records need to be accessed quickly, regardless of the frequency of patient visits.Patient data records need to be readily available, as physicians have limited knowledge on which records they will need on a day-to-day basis. With a wave of data flowing into the new PACS, and given these accessibility challenges, Princeton needed a solution that could store patient data cost-effectively, while keeping it online for quick and easy access.In March 2006, we identified a solution that allows us to efficiently accommodate our burgeoning storage growth and provide cost-effective data protection in the Dell Compellent storage area network (SAN). Our primary applications currently include a radiology information system (RIS) and a single integrated PACS, which was formerly two separate systems based on Microsoft SQL Server databases. In all, we are hosting approximately 64 TB of information: 37.5 TB at our primary site and 26 TB at our disaster recovery site.With the Dell Compellent SAN in place, we were able to address a number of our IT pain points. As we implemented the GE Centricity PACS, we realized that we could not predict precisely the amount of storage we might need over the long term. But with Dell thin provisioning, we could add and properly allocate more disk capacity quickly and allow our hospital to run smoothly, without downtime and without spending hours each day on data management. Thin provisioning allows our IT staff to scale capacity, connectivity and performance incrementally to accommodate 500 GB of data growth per month, without affecting the daily work of our medical staff.Automated Prioritization of Patient Data and Faster Data RecoveryAs our data grew, Princeton was still wrestling with the need to balance disk performance and cost. We needed to prioritize usage of high-performance storage in the most affordable way, so we implemented automated tiered storage to dynamically manage the movement of data across three different tiers of storage.At any time we can quickly access our data, even if it has not been previously touched in months, while significantly reducing our reliance on the fast, yet expensive, disks. Implementing the Fluid Data architecture ensured that our RIS and PACS applications could run more quickly so our doctors could retrieve and review important digital images without waiting, while maximizing our storage efficiency and cost savings.Since we implemented the SAN, 90 percent of our data has migrated from tier-one down to tier-three disks, without manual intervention. With the SAN, we can establish the policies and then let the software move our data automatically.This automated data movement has saved us a tremendous amount on storage costs by allowing us to only add relatively inexpensive tier-three disks as the organization grew. We have not had to purchase any more tier-one disks in the five years since we implemented the system.To protect these tiers of storage and improve data accessibility, we needed a backup and recovery method that was flexible and fast. With our legacy system, we could only back up our data once per day, and we had to be sure that no one was using the system at the time, leaving our hospital further exposed to data loss and creating disruptions for our staff.Dell Compellent’s replay technology allowed us to dramatically improve data protection by taking frequent, space-efficient snapshots of data. These snapshots only capture changes to data stored on the system, which not only saves us disk space, but also recovers lost or deleted files in about 5 minutes, eliminating the need to resort to time-consuming tape backups. In addition, we replicate these snapshots to a remote site configured with low-cost storage, which provides us with affordable disaster recovery as a key part of our business continuity strategy. Altogether, our patient data is now more accessible for our physicians and nurses, and they can work uninterrupted while we continue to provide data protection for images and medical records.Fluid Data Architecture Accommodates Rapid Data GrowthWith the new system, we can affordably manage our data while spending only a few hours per week on storage administration. It allows us to do more with the current IT staff and avoid adding headcount as our data storage needs grow. We are able to manage our storage in-house and measure our growth more effectively than ever before. Additionally, we can now focus solely on our patient’s treatment without having to constantly monitor a growing storage issue for our medical staff.By moving to a Fluid Data storage architecture, Princeton Radiology has been able to better accommodate rapid data growth and data availability concerns. Patient data can now be easily accessed even after a long period of time between visits.Moving forward, we are better equipped to optimize costs to manage patient data and scale storage capacity for our digital images and medical records. Our data is more available and better protected, which ultimately allows us to serve our patient base more effectively, day in and day out.

The purchase contract includes 11 Mindray portable and six Zonare ZS3 units.“HCMC is a pioneer in the use of point-of-care ultrasound,” said Andrew Laudenbach, M.D., emergency physician at HCMC. “Having state-of-the-art ultrasound technology immediately accessible in our emergency department is a standard for providing excellence in patient care.”HCMC is a Level I Adult and Pediatric Trauma Center and nationally recognized medical education center with innovative programs and specialties. In addition to its emergency and trauma services, HCMC provides care through several primary care clinics with various locations throughout the county, including a retail clinic in a local Walmart store. Its emergency department alone has more than 100,000 patient visits each year.“Because of our high volume and demand for rapid results, we rely on imaging solutions that provide outstanding diagnostic quality and user-friendly interfaces,” said Laudenbach.The Mindray portable platform provides a wealth of advanced imaging features including excellent temporal resolution along with an innovative implementation of multiple tissue harmonic imaging technologies to improve image quality for technically difficult patients. iZoom enables the ability to view structures more accurately from a distance and iTouch provides a single button image optimization. Tissue Doppler Imaging (TDI), cine, wireless data transfer and real-time 3-D (4-D) are part of the platform as well.The ZS3 system is based on Zone Sonography technology (ZST). ZST is an innovative approach to echo data acquisition and image formation. Using a small number of large “zones,” ZST acquires ultrasound data significantly faster than conventional ultrasound and extracts more information on each transmit receive cycle. Since the speed of sound traveling through tissue is a physical constant, ZST has a significantly faster acoustic acquisition time enabling superior imaging quality.  ZST is a Living Technology that delivers ultrasound imaging excellence based on a dynamic and open architecture that allows continual platform evolvement.“We are pleased the synergy between Mindray and Zonare could offer a comprehensive solution for HCMC,” said Glen Mclaughlin, Ph.D., president of Zonare. “These are the type of results we had anticipated when the two companies joined together.
