David was great copy, New research conducted by the University of Bristol shows that patients who started taking the treatment after 2008 can now expect to live to nearly 70. and New Delhi "I think we will see drug prices go up probably sooner than we expect" Many Africans get their malaria drugs in the private sector from local pharmacies or village shops where the latest and most effective generation of drugs the so-called artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs) are often hard to find and expensive Instead many people end up with less expensive but ineffective drugs such as chloroquine and artemisinin monotherapies which increase the risk of drug resistance AMFm sought to address this problem through a global subsidy that helped make ACTs very cheap for importers in Africa The hope was that the drugs would trickle down to patients at low prices In a pilot held the past 2 years in seven countries the plan worked according to an independent evaluation published recently in The Lancet But critics of AMFm—including the US President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) and Oxfam a UK charity—argue that it’s not clear how many of the drugs reached the most vulnerable group—children under age 5 in poor areas—and that with malaria rates declining across Africa many drugs must have gone to people who did not have malaria at all Backers of AMFm say PMI which did not help pay for the program has lobbied hard behind the scenes to kill it a charge that PMI denies Yesterday as expected the Global Fund’s board decided neither to continue AMFm nor to kill it; instead after a transition year the fund will "integrate" the scheme into its normal funding activities which means individual countries can now apply for funds to subsidize malaria drugs in their private sector That means that governments will have to choose between subsidizing private sector drugs or funding bednets and drugs distributed through the public sector says Laxminarayan — and the private sector drugs will likely lose out One of the key goals of the subsidy is to prevent the emergence of resistance against ACTs which would be a major crisis; for individual countries investing in such a common good is no more attractive than investing in measures to prevent climate change he adds Moreover it appears there will be no new money beyond the more than $350 million that donors have so far paid for AMFm’s pilot In a recent piece in The Lancet the members of an Institute of Medicine panel that came up with the idea of a global subsidy in 2002 decried the plan to integrate AMFm into the fund as a way of "killing it slowly" But in a press release issued yesterday the Global Fund presented the measures as an improvement and expansion of the plan "By introducing modifications and integrating it into the Global Fund grant processes the Board has improved this valuable mechanism and made it available to all eligible countries that wish to implement it" said Gabriel Jaramillo general manager of the Global Fund in the statement This spring Apple CEO Tim Cook offered a vision of the companys future – to anyone reading between the lines "We have almost 800 million iTunes accounts and the majority of those have credit cards behind them" Cook said in a quarterly conference call with analysts "We already have people using Touch ID [Apples fingerprint reader] to buy things across our store so its an area of interest to us" That "it" refers to virtual wallets – smartphone apps meant to replace the need for credit cards and cash Virtual wallets have been a drop-dead obvious idea since at least 2011 when Google launched its much heralded Google Wallet for Android ie "tomorrows billfold" Three years – and nearly half a billion dollars in investment later – the Google Wallet has been largely ignored by consumers Meanwhile competitors like Square and its Square Wallet app have also officially thrown in the towel Getting people to ditch old-fashioned cash and credit cards it turns out is harder that it seems But as Apple gears up for what seems a certain foray into the virtual wallet space consumers have good reason to believe that the days of carrying around bulging leather billfolds may – finally – be numbered A wallet wasteland Among the biggest challenges facing virtual wallets: finding a use case "[At] the end of the day point-of-sale payments arent really broken" writes Gigaoms Kevin Fitchard "Swiping a plastic card works just as well as it always has" For most consumers in other words paying via credit card remains a fairly frictionless transaction Virtual wallets do afford certain advantages – seamless record keeping for starters – but there hasnt been a pressing need for adoption Add to this the hurdles – both real and perceived – of switching to a mobile wallet The tap-and-go technology behind mobile wallets generally relies on near field communication or NFC Concerns continue to linger about whether hackers can exploit NFC transmissions – which can have a range of up to a meter or more – to eavesdrop on transactions Meanwhile Apples existing phones arent equipped with NFC chips at all leaving hundreds of millions of iPhone users – an absolutely critical virtual wallet demographic – out of luck At the same time retailers have been reluctant to embrace NFC terminals which often require costly new hardware Instead theyve opted for simpler software-centric solutions like apps that transform smartphones or tablets (equipped with tiny card readers) into a credit card terminal at minimal cost But the biggest obstacle for Google Wallet and its virtual brethren has been phone carriers themselves Virtual wallets generally store users credit card information locally on a special chip within phones (home of the so-called "secure element") And individual phone carriers control access to this chip Rather than play along with Google Wallet many carriers have blocked access and started competing offerings themselves (like Isis the virtual wallet from AT&T T-Mobile and Verizon) The result: fragmentation of the nascent wallet market and huge headaches for Google "With Google Wallet we had one point of failure" explained Jonathan Wall the projects founding engineer "the carriers [used] the necessity of hardware to really block the product" A virtual tipping point But hardware may not be an issue much longer The latest Android phones (as well as Blackberry devices) have found a way to store credit card information securely in the cloud rather than on a chip inside phones Known as host card emulation or HCE this technology enables virtual wallets to make an end-run around carriers cutting them out of the equation entirely "With HCE Google has opened the floodgates for NFC payments and created a level playing field for all mobile wallet providers" explains mobile commerce consultant Sai Casula Unencumbered by carriers and third parties virtual wallet makers are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel At the same time consumer attitudes are slowly changing Starbucks pay-and-go loyalty app has over 10 million users demonstrating peoples willingness to embrace smartphones for mobile payments if only for their morning lattes Around the world tap-and-go credit cards have also proliferated with MasterCard Visa and American Express all offering competing versions which has helped allay consumer concerns over the security and privacy of "contactless transactions" Meanwhile tap-and-go NFC terminals are becoming increasingly common in stores not to mention in taxis in subway stations and in other venues where speedy payment is a priority But the real tipping point for virtual wallets may well come with the iPhone 6 whose release is rumored for later this fall Consensus among industry analysts is that the new phone will have an NFC chip paving the way for tap-and-go payments (Even if that doesnt come to fruition the company has already rolled out related technology iBeacon Bluetooth in its iOS 7 operating system) Indeed Apple seems to have all its ducks in a row for a headlong plunge into the virtual wallet space: hundreds of millions of users credit card numbers on file; a device people carry with them at all times to hold these numbers; and even a fingerprint system to authenticate transactions (ensuring that stolen iPhones for instance cant be used for payments) “Apple is absolutely the sleeping giant in the payments world” explains Forrester Researchs Denee Carrington “They have the capability; they just haven’t tied it all together” Just what an Apple wallet might look like remains conjecture though many analysts suspect it would fit nicely within the iPhones existing Passbook app (used for storing things like boarding passes movie tickets and gift cards) What is clear is that Apple has already made overtures to industry that its keen to handle payments for physical goods on its devices and CEO Cook is hardly button-lipped on the subject: "[You] still have a wallet in your back pocket and I do too" he said to analysts "which probably means it hasnt been figured out just yet" Heres betting that Cook and the best minds at Apple have set their sights on figuring out the virtual wallet riddle sooner rather than later Michael Gokturk (@MichaelGokturk) writes on mobile payments and is

governing body for conducting the matches The cricket board has been apprised of "our sentiments" Fisheries minister D Jayakumar said He said "it would be good" if the BCCI respected the sentiments and not conduct the match here but government would provide all support including security as per laid down guidelines Political parties and outfits have been demanding that IPL matches not be held at this time saying the state is witnessing widespread agitations on the vexed issue Opposition DMK Working President MK Stalin had said the organisers of IPL matches should realise the issues faced by the people and act accordingly "We are not saying that it (matches) should not be held The organisers should realise the problems of people and act accordingly" he had said last week Tamil film star Rajinikanth had suggested that CSK team players play with black bands as a mark of expressing the anguish of people who have been staging protests demanding setting up of Cauvery Management Board He had said the Centre might face the wrath of entire Tamil Nadu if CMB was not set up immediately Pro-Tamil outfit Tamizhaga Vazhvurimai Katchi (TVK) on Monday warned of picketing the stadium tomorrow if the IPL stuck to its Chennai calendar TVK chief Velmurugan told reporters that if the match was held despite its plea they would coordinate with all democratic forces to stop it by organising a massive picketing protest Later Velmurugan told PTI that his party or outfits that have joined hands with it were not against the players Police said that as part of the stringent security measures a 2000 strong police posse comprising one team of commandos and four teams of personnel of the Rapid Action Force besides a number of senior officials would be part of the security detail inside and outside the MA Chidambaram stadium where the match will be held The fans will be allowed entry only after a thorough check the release said adding proper traffic arrangements would also be put in

A lot of us who have had the experience have found out, I believe in the concept of vocation, Those numbers reflect the highest disapproval rating for a newly elected president since such figures were first tracked, According to the Ikyaabo,上海贵族宝贝Webster, led the first effort to estimate the effective MTurk research population with this method—and the results sent shock waves through the community last year Seven psychology labs in the United States Europe and Australia ran 114000 experimental sessions over a 3-year period The number of unique people among the subjects came to only 30000 Rather than a pool of half-a-million subjects always on tap Stewart estimated that the true number of Turkers that are willing to take part in an experiment at any one time is only about 7300 “What seemed like a virtually infinite subject pool was in fact more like a very large state university psychology pool” Gureckis says Stewart’s data show that the population churns rapidly: Half the Turker population that participates in research is replaced by fresh people every 7 months Those Turkers are also far less diverse than was thought Though Amazon has long noted the global nature of the community surveys of those completing experimental tasks reveal that the vast majority are based in the Unites States And compared with the average American Litman says Turkers “skew young they are more liberal more urban and more likely to be single” Knowing such traits he notes is crucial for researchers as they try to interpret their data Turkers are also poorly paid although their hourly rate is difficult to calculate in part because Amazon takes a cut of between 20% to 40% and because Turkers undertake multiple tasks at once with break time For the 6 years of accumulated effort in May researchers doled out $164882 That would seem to translate to an average pay rate of about $3 per hour but “the true hourly rate is somewhere between $4 and $8 per hour” Litman says Many Turkers complain that this is too low because social science experiments often take more effort—and time—than other tasks Gureckis agrees At NYU “we pay subjects $8 to $10 per hour and there’s often a bonus at the end” he says “MTurk subjects should be paid the same as they would in the lab That’s what we try to do” Nor do they yet enjoy the same ethical protections When subjects drop out of an experiment “you’re supposed to pay them proportional to the time they put in” Gureckis says But MTurk has no mechanism for partial pay: A Turker must complete an entire task or get no pay at all And although researchers are supposed to protect the identity of subjects Gureckis says “MTurk is not really anonymous” In 2013 a research team showed that it is possible to match a Turker’s worker ID to their account on Amazon’s retail website Depending on how much information is associated with that user profile it can reveal a Turker’s buying habits video tastes and even their full name and location Researchers have suggested ways to remedy this privacy issue but the company so far seems to have taken no action (Amazon declined a request for an interview with Science) Some researchers wonder whether the giant company will keep MTurk going—or whether social scientists need to develop their own customized alternative “At this point MTurk has become so important for social science that the National Science Foundation should be negotiating directly with Amazon” Gureckis says “We’re subsidizing this service with millions of dollars in federal grant money” Paris: The president of the French Football Federation (FFF) has effectively ruled out any prospect of a return to the national team for Karim Benzema ahead of next year’s World Cup "You would need to be a bit blind or deaf to not understand that it will be difficult to select him that seems unquestionable" the FFF’s Noel Le Graet told RMC radio on Wednesday File image of Karim Benzema AP "It should also be said that we have a certain number of talented players in attack and it is less of a problem than a few years ago" The 29-year-old Real Madrid star has won 81 caps for his country but has not played since October 2015 when a scandal over a sex tape broke out with Benzema implicated Benzema was one of a number of people accused of blackmailing his then international teammate Mathieu Valbuena – now with Turkish club Fenerbahce – over the tape Benzema was placed under investigation for "complicity to and attempted blackmail" After being left out of the France squad for Euro 2016 the striker accused the national coach Didier Deschamps of bowing "to pressure from a racist part of France" But Deschamps has said that not selecting Benzema was better for the "balance" and "harmony" of his squad "As long as Didier Deschamps is coach I have no chance of getting back into the France team" Benzema said in an interview with Canal Plus last month European nuclear physicists released a long-range plan today that aims to cement their world-leading position in the field The roughly 6000 nuclear scientists and engineers across the continent are already served by more than a dozen labs but the twin top priorities of the Long Range Plan 2010 drawn up by the Nuclear Physics European Collaboration Committee (NuPECC) are the completion of two large facilities that will be completed this decade: the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) at the GSI laboratory in Darmstadt Germany and SPIRAL2 at France’s GANIL lab in Caen SPIRAL2 already has its 300 million budget secure and is under construction but in these times of austerity researchers want to ensure that schedules are kept and budgets remain uncut The 12 billion FAIR has 85% of its budget committed and will begin construction soon Nuclear physicists work with a wide array of techniques and energies ranging from a few kiloelectron-volts used in astrophysical experiments examining nucleosynthesis in stars up through nine orders of magnitude to teraelectron-volts which is needed to create a quark-gluon plasma FAIR will have a number of beamlines and detectors so that researchers can carry out many sorts of such nuclear experiments but the principle technique used will be one called fragmentation This involves researchers firing large stable high-energy nuclei at a thin target so that many unusual unstable nuclei come spewing out the other side SPIRAL2 will complement FAIR by using an alternative method of generating unstable nuclei In this technique known as isotope separation online (ISOL) mid-energy nuclei hit a thick target and the radioactive isotopes produced are then ionized and reboosted by another accelerator ready for the experiment In its plan NuPECC also urges funding agencies to support the upgrading of several existing facilities including the ISOLDE experiment at CERN SPES at Italy’s Legnaro National Laboratory the AGATA gamma-ray spectrometer that can be moved around and used at different labs and to provide a new superconducting linear accelerator for stable beams at GSI for superheavy element research Further over the horizon Europe’s nuclear physicists are working up plans for next-generation facilities such as a higher-intensity ISOL facility called EURISOL two new colliders at FAIR for proton-antiproton experiments and electron-nucleon studies and the ability to do high-energy electron-proton collisions at CERN Guenther Rosner of the University of Glasgow in the United Kingdom and chair of NuPECC says that the committee felt a long-range plan was needed because big facilities have very long lead times of approximately 10 years "It’s because they use cutting-edge technology that has never been tried before" he says They are also a big funding commitment "FAIR will be the largest nuclear physics facility in the world" Rosner says As a result "we need a solid scientific base before we go to governments asking for money"” Kurzman’s 2004 book, On a personal
