It was Kenna’s second trial for attempted murder, after a jury failed to reach a verdict last October.The trial heard that Burke, who worked for the Department of Social Protection, was walking home when she noticed a woman sitting on a wall outside a house.As Burke approached, the woman, Laura Kenna, sprang up and pushed her back onto a grassy area. Kenna didn’t say anything, but started to stab her.Burke felt short stabs and could also feel her face being slashed, before she felt a dramatic slash straight across her neck. Kenna then spoke, telling Burke that she’d let her go if she handed over her handbag.The jury saw photographs of the large, deep cut across Burke’s neck. It had penetrated through muscle and cut through the thyroid gland. She required surgery and recovered in the intensive care unit after the attack. She also had other injuries to her face and body.Kenna later admitted to gardaí: “I sliced her like you would a goat.”‘A shocking incident’Justice Tara Burns said today that Kenna’s admissions had been very graphic and had demonstrated an attempt to kill.She described the attack as vicious, random, horrifying and frightening.“This was a shocking incident,” she said. Thursday 11 Apr 2019, 6:10 PM 46,910 Views To be coming home from work at five in the evening in the days after Christmas, that a young woman would be attacked like this, it’s just unimaginable in an ordered society. She noted that Burke had provided a victim impact report, which she did not wish to be read in court.“She seems a very young woman and I’m very impressed by the victim impact report,” she said.“(It) can only be described as a very restrained report in light of the attack and the very significant and horrendous injuries she sustained.”She said it was clear that she hadn’t fully recovered from her physical injuries.“The victim impact report, in a very mild manner, outlines the psychological impact it had on her,” she said.She added that she was impressed with the “non-contentious manner” in which she had outlined her suffering, including her loss of safety and security.“In relation to this assault, clearly she was a very, very unlucky woman to have been the random victim of this accused,” said the judge.“She is very lucky that she is still with us and doesn’t have more significant injuries,” she continued, adding that it seemed bizarre to use the word ‘lucky’.But, in light of the attack she was subjected to and the injuries sustained, she is lucky and the outcome could have been very different.Mental healthThe judge said that it was clear that Kenna was suffering from a significant mental health condition at the time, which might have gone untreated for up to six years.She has since been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, needs psychiatric treatment and is currently detained in the Central Mental Hospital.She said that the jury’s verdict did not mean that she wasn’t suffering from a mental illness at the time. She said that a person may well be suffering from a significant mental illness but still know the nature of their actions, know that their actions are wrong and be able to refrain from them.She noted that Kenna had come from a good family, but that mental health problems had emerged and she had begun taking drugs. This had complicated both her mental health issues and diagnosis, she said.SentencingShe said that a headline sentence of 17 years in prison was appropriate for her crime. However, after having regard to the mitigating factors of remorse, admissions and not requiring the victim to give evidence, she imposed a 15-year term of imprisonment on her.Kenna’s barrister, Barry White SC, had asked her to suspend all or the major portion of her sentence in light of her mental health issue. Justice Burns said that option was not available to her.“People with mental health difficulties are also required to act with a moral responsibility,” she said, noting that Kenna had engaged in “very normal behaviour” both before and after the attack.However, she suspended the last five years on condition she cooperate with a consultant psychiatrist, abide by all treatment regimes and remain drug and alcohol free for the duration of the suspended period.She said the warrant would issue to The Dochas Centre at Mountjoy Prison but that it was a matter for the Prison Service and the Central Mental Hospital “to resolve that issue between them”.Having come to court in the custody of the Central Mental Hospital, she was then led away by prison officers.“Ms Burke, I wish you well in your future life,” said Justice Burns before leaving the bench.“You’re a very brave young woman.” https://jrnl.ie/4587771 Image: Collins Courtslast_img read more

Texas GOP Platform Calls For Full Repeal Of Gun Control Total Abortion

first_imgListen To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: 00:00 /01:27 State of TexasLast week’s Texas Republican Convention set the party’s platform for the next two years. The platform names five top priorities for the 85th Texas Legislature. They include repealing all licensing requirements for firearms, banning abortions, securing the Mexican border, calling for a convention of states to enact amendments limiting the power of the federal government, and replacing the state’s property tax system.“In many respects, the Legislature is already working on all five of these legislative issues, at least in an incremental way, because if you look at them as goals, then we’re making progress toward those goals,” says state Senator Paul Bettencourt, whose district covers northwestern Harris County.Several of those priorities, if enacted, would put Texas directly at odds with federal law, setting up a conflict the Supreme Court would have to resolve. The platform also calls for several measures that would require action by Congress, such as eliminating the Internal Revenue Service.“In a way, it’s as much a wish list as much as it is a legislative agenda,” says Brandon Rottinghaus, associate professor of political science at the University of Houston. “But the platform gives us, I think, a window into what the most conservative wing of the party wants.”The next legislative session runs 139 days.Rottinghaus says that will limit how much Republicans can achieve, even with lopsided majorities in both chambers.center_img X Share The five top priorities for the 85th Texas Legislature are listed on page 33 last_img read more

Heated crystal flakes can be sewn into clothing for thermotherapy

first_img Citation: Heated crystal flakes can be sewn into clothing for thermotherapy (2019, June 10) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-06-crystal-flakes-sewn-thermotherapy.html IR images of the MXene fabric heater formed into a ring, cotton glove, and bracelet. Credit: Park et al. ©2019 American Chemical Society The researchers, led by Chong Min Koo, at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology and Korea University, and Cheolmin Park, at Yonsei University, have published a paper on the shape-adaptable MXene heater in a recent issue of ACS Nano.In recent years, researchers have been investigating different materials to be used as flexible, wearable heaters. Although materials such as carbon nanotubes and graphene have excellent electrical and optical properties, it has been challenging to process them for use in applications.A newer material, MXene was first introduced in 2011 by researchers at Drexel University. MXene is a 2-D crystalline material that exhibits metal-like conductivity and strong electric-to-heat conversion behavior. It can also be easily processed into thin films and fabrics.”We were able to develop novel light-weight, cost-effective but high performance electrical heaters based on emerging 2-D materials of MXene, which are suitable for wearable and on-body applications,” Park told Phys.org. “Several candidates for the purpose have been proposed, based on carbon nanomaterials, but they are restricted by either their poor processability or low electrical conductivity involving harmful and toxic chemicals. We resolved these issues with solution-processed MXene flakes.”In the new study, the researchers first used MXene flakes to fabricate a transparent thin-film heater. Under an applied 15 V, the heater’s temperature increased at a rate of 8°C/second to reach a maximum of 120°C (248°F). By submerging the heater in liquid nitrogen for 5 minutes, the researchers demonstrated that the heater could function as a defroster, rapidly removing the frost on its surface under 12 V. As a demonstration of its high flexibility, the heater could be folded at a 90° angle without any increase in resistance, and continued to function even when folded in half, although with greater resistance.The researchers also demonstrated that the MXene flakes can be used to make heated fabric. To do so, the researchers treated commercial polymer threads with a coating to enhance their electrostatic interaction with the MXene flakes. Then they dipped the threads into a water solution containing MXene flakes. The electrostatic interaction between the positively charged threads and negatively charged flakes caused the flakes to self-assemble onto the individual fibers, turning the white threads black in the process.The MXene-coated threads were then sewn together with cotton to make heated clothing. Under a small voltage, each MXene flake acted as a tiny heater. By controlling the voltage, the researchers could gradually raise the temperature of cold skin back to normal body temperature without damage to the skin. In future applications, the heated clothing could be powered by conventional batteries or alternative power sources.”Potentially, our heater can be powered by the energy stored in batteries and/or supercapacitors from a variety of emerging renewable energy sources, such as wearable solar cells, triboelectric energy generators, and so on,” Park said.The researchers expect that the robust, flexible heated clothing could be useful for healthcare thermotherapy and monitoring, among other personal applications.”Since the MXene flakes we developed with the solution process are highly conductive and optically transparent, a variety of applications are possible, in particular, requiring transparent electrodes,” Park said. “Examples include the development of mechanically flexible and thus wearable organic light emitting diode displays, photodetectors, and transparent touch and/or pressure sensors.” More information: Tae Hyun Park, Seunggun Yu, et al. “Shape-Adaptable 2D Titanium Carbide (MXene) Heater.” ACS Nano.

How viewers cant distinguish real 3D films from artificial ones

first_imgIt seems to be very difficult for viewers to tell the difference between real and artificially rendered 3-D films, according to new research. Examining the effects of various technologies, the researchers found that it plays virtually no role in the viewer’s experience whether a 3-D film was originally produced as such or whether it was later converted from 2-D to 3-D using algorithms as, for example, is the case with new 3-D televisions. “That is surprising when you consider how much time and money goes into producing real 3-D films,” said primary author of the study who did a research on this unique topic. In the study, participants were shown six short film sequences, two each from the categories horror, action, and documentary films.  Also Read – Best Telugu shows to watch on ‘Viu’While there were no detectable differences when it came to the two 3-D technologies, there was divergence in the way that the three individual categories were assessed.The 108 participants of the study were given 3-D glasses and had to rate the impressions made on them by the film segments.  For example, the basis on whichthey were supposed to tell their experience was that they had to say whether the story in the film drew them in or in another case whether they were impressed by the technological aspects of the film, what type of emotion or excitement did they experience while watching the film. Also Read – American Crime Story 3 to chronicle Clinton’s impeachmentAnother category was  whether they felt any sort of queasiness due to the camera movements. They were also asked what they thought of the main characters in the films.According to the results, published in the journal ‘Displays’, 3-D films essentially inspire stronger feelings of being drawn into the story than 2-D films. However, 3-D films also more often cause slight nausea because of what can be described as ‘motion sickness’.  The researchers also discovered that the viewers found 3-D technology particularly interesting for action and horror films, but less for documentaries.It was of virtually no significance whether the 3-D aspect of the film was real or an algorithmic conversion, the study showed.last_img read more

Cancer therapy may up heart disease risk in men

first_imgA cancer therapy — considered to be gold-standard treatment — is causing men to lose muscle mass and gain fat, putting them at increased risk of other disorders like cardiovascular disease, diabetes and osteoporosis, a study has found. Researchers showed men treated with hormone therapy for prostate cancer often had a dangerously high fat to muscle ratio. The study said while the five-year survival rate for Australian men with prostate cancer was now 95 per cent, side-effects from the intense treatment regimen were becoming an increasing concern. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”Men diagnosed with prostate cancer are now living longer due to medical advancements, but are susceptible to a range of treatment side-effects,” said Patrick Owen, lead author of the study published in the Journal of Cachexia, Sarcopenia and Muscle. “Prostate cancer survivors are now more likely to die from other conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, than prostate cancer, which may in part be due to our inability to detect and subsequently treat side-effects of therapy,” Owen said. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”The amount of muscle we have relative to fat is one of the biggest indicators for diabetes risk, decreased physical function needed to complete daily tasks, and lots of other adverse health conditions,” he added. The research examined the muscle and fat in 70 men treated with hormone therapy for prostate cancer compared to 52 men with prostate cancer not treated with hormone therapy and 70 healthy men of a similar age. It found men treated with hormone therapy for prostate cancer had the same amount of total muscle mass compared to other men in the study, but four to six kilograms more fat mass. “When men are diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer they are often treated with hormone therapy to reduce their testosterone levels, which discourages cancer growth. This is considered the gold-standard of treatment,” he further said. “It puts men through the equivalent of menopause. There’s a loss of muscle and bone, they gain fat, and even start to have hot flushes,” he stated. While men with prostate cancer treated with hormone therapy may have the same or greater absolute muscle mass than non-treated and healthy men, it’s not as functional as the same amount of muscle in otherwise healthy weight men. Owen said that he hoped his recent research would encourage more clinicians to test their male patients for muscle mass relative to body fat. Lifestyle interventions that could be used to help men with prostate cancer reduce body fat and increase muscle.last_img read more

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

It can be programmed to aid workflow by automatically removing bone, create cured planar reconstructions, lung CAD and other post-processing features so more time can be spent on reading scans. The scanner also comes with a HeartFlow FFR-CT starter pack.Find more information on this system in these related articles:New Cardiovascular CT Technology Entering the MarketNew Technology Highlights on the ACC 2019 Exhibit Floor Nuclear Imaging | August 24, 2017 VIDEO: Implementing CZT SPECT Cardiac Protocols to Reduce Radiation Dose Randy Thompson, M.D., attending cardiologist, St. Luke’s Mid-America Heart Institute, Kansas City, explains protocols and what to consider when working with the newer generation CZT-SPECT camera systems for nuclear cardiology.

first_imgOther economists, including at the Federal Reserve in Washington, have concluded that the government’s figures are largely accurate. The first-quarter weakness over the years may be due to harsh winter weather and “statistical noise,” they concluded.The Commerce Department’s Bureau of Economic Analysis, which produces the figures, will have the last word. The agency says it “is working on a multi-pronged action plan to improve its estimates of gross domestic product.”In a blog post Friday, it said it will focus on defense spending, which appears to regularly slow in the first and fourth quarters, and on consumer spending on services, which hasn’t been measured as long as spending on goods.It will release the results of its review July 30, when it issues second-quarter data.Copyright © The Associated Press.

New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Comments   Share   Top Stories At issue is a process known as “seasonal adjustment,” which is not nearly as convoluted as it sounds. Many routine patterns affect the economy, such as the layoff of temporary retail employees after the winter holidays, or a spike in consumer spending around Easter. Seasonal adjustment attempts to factor out those patterns to get a clearer picture of how the economy is actually performing.Yet what appears to be a seasonal pattern still exists. Alec Phillips, an economist at Goldman Sachs, noticed that from 2010 through 2014, growth in the first three months of the year has averaged 0.6 percent, while it has averaged 2.9 percent in the other three quarters.And Macroeconomic Advisers, a forecasting firm, has found that the pattern goes back further: Since 1995, outside of recessions, the first quarter has grown at half the pace of the other three.Many Americans may spend less in the first quarter after ramping up their shopping over the holidays. That cutback would slow growth. But that’s exactly the type of pattern that seasonal adjustment should filter out.Researchers at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco argued that under a different method of adjustment, first-quarter growth this year would have been 1.8 percent, rather than 0.2 percent. The government seasonally adjusts components of gross domestic product, the broadest measure of the economy, before adding them together. The researchers argued that the final, aggregate data should also be adjusted. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility WASHINGTON (AP) — There’s something strange about the U.S. economy in the first three months of every year: It frequently grows at a much slower pace than in the other nine months.And on Friday, the government agency charged with calculating the economy’s growth rate said it would adjust its methods in an effort to resolve the problem.The changes could paint a much different picture of the economy’s recent performance. Concerns flared when the government said late last month that the economy expanded just 0.2 percent at an annual rate in the first quarter. But many economists have challenged the government’s data, and some have argued the first-quarter figure should be as high as 1.8 percent instead.
