About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say Ajax chief Van der Sar: De Ligt just like Juventus teammate Ronaldoby Carlos Volcano13 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveAjax chief Edwin van der Sar has sung the praises of Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt.De Ligt left Ajax for Juve last summer.“His mentality, that of someone who always tries to improve, makes him want to be the best in the world,” the Bianconeri’s former No 1 told ESPN.“I’ve already seen some players like him. One of them plays for his own team and it’s Cristiano Ronaldo.“I played with him at Manchester United and saw the same desire to work hard and be the best.“He has the same desire and hunger as De Ligt. Matthijs is only 19 years old. He was fantastic with us at Ajax: he was our rock and captain.“In Italy he must learn a new language, he must get to know his new teammates. “Chiellini’s injury helped him get into the team right away but maybe put more pressure on his shoulders.”
Arsenal have hit out at the ‘unacceptable racial abuse’ that Jordi Osei-Tutu suffered during his debut for German side VfL Bochum on Tuesday night.The Gunners right-back is on loan with Bochum and was making his first start for his new club during a pre-season friendly against Swiss side St. Gallen.But he was left distraught following an incident with an opposing player just before half-time and left the pitch in tears, before eventually coming back out to continue the game.

Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare The video of the incident, which shows Osei-Tutu inconsolable on the pitch, has been spread on social media and Arsenal, Bochum and the player himself have now responded by issuing joint statements.Arsenal said: “Last night Jordi Osei-Tutu received unacceptable racial abuse playing for VfL Bochum during a pre-season friendly match against Swiss club St Gallen.“We are working closely with Bochum and Jordi and we are giving him our full support. “Racism has no place in our game and we do not tolerate any form of discrimination.”Osei-Tutu joined Bochum last week and will spend the full 2019-2020 campaign on loan with the Bundesliga 2 outfit.A statement released by the German club said: “Jordi Osei-Tutu was unfortunately the victim of a racist incident during a pre-season friendly between FC St. Gallen and VfL Bochum 1848.“VfL Bochum 1848, Jordi Osei-Tutu and his parent club, Arsenal, are in close coordination to deal with this incident. Both clubs, VfL and Arsenal, stand by Jordi Osei-Tutu and assure him of their full support.“We do not tolerate any form of discrimination. Racism has no place in our game.”Osei-Tutu was inundated with messages of support on social media following the incident on Tuesday night, both from team-mates and from fans who had seen the video.And in a statement of his own, the 20-year-old defender admitted he was left stunned at the treatment he received from a fellow player.“I am very disappointed about what happened,” he said.“No one should ever be subject to any discrimination and it is really hard to understand how a fellow professional footballer could do this.“Arsenal and Bochum have provided great support to me and I hope that if nothing else, we can show that racism has no place within football.”Bochum will now continue dialogue with St. Gallen over the incident in a bid to ensure further action is taken.But a statement released by the Swiss club suggests they do not feel any further action is necessary, following talks with the player involved in the incident.”St. Gallen would like to make it clear the club condemns every form of racism or discrimination,” said the statement. “Any such behaviour will be punished.”Our players treat each other with respect regardless of origins, skin colour or religion. The player who was involved in the incident has assured the club’s hierarchy that he stuck to the club’s philosophy in yesterday’s game against Bochum.”

TORONTO — The Toronto stock market ran ahead sharply Friday on relief that another major central bank is stepping up to help keep the global economic recovery on track.The S&P/TSX composite index jumped 154.63 points to 14,613.32 after the Bank of Japan unexpectedly expanded a key stimulus program.It will increase its purchases of government bonds and other assets in the world’s third-largest economy by between 10 trillion yen and 20 trillion yen (US$91 billion to $181 billion) to about 80 trillion yen (US$725 billion) in total annually.Bank of Japan’s surprise stimulus gives jolt to global markets: ‘Traders couldn’t be happier’Bank governor Haruhiko Kuroda said the increase was required to prevent a reversal into a “deflationary mindset” that the country’s leaders contend has held back growth for many years. The bank judged the move necessary in the wake of weakening consumer demand following a consumption tax hike and the recent substantial decline in oil prices, which have been exerting downward pressure on inflation.“At the very least it says central bankers are going to do everything they can to try to get growth going,” said Philip Petursson, director of institutional equities at Manulife Asset Management.“And that’s what it seems like in Japan — this is everything and the kitchen sink.”The Canadian dollar fell 0.6 of a cent to 88.72 cents US as Statistics Canada reported that gross domestic product dipped 0.1% in August against the flat showing that economists had expected.In New York, the Dow Jones industrials shot up 194.9 points to 17,390.32, and the S&P 500 index gained 23.4 points to 2,018.05 — both indexes ending the session at new highs — while the Nasdaq climbed 64.6 points to 4,630.74. The move by the Japanese central bank comes at a point when the U.S. Federal Reserve is winding up its marquee stimulus program. It announced Wednesday that quantitative easing would end at the end of October.Meanwhile, the TSX found support from the financial, tech and industrials sectors.The energy sector was also positive, up 2.1% even as December crude fell 58 cents to US$80.54 a barrel.Imperial Oil reported a 45% jump in quarterly profit to $936 million or $1.10 a share, up from $647 million, or 76 cents per share, a year earlier. Revenue rose 12.4% to $9.66 billion and its shares gained $2.42 to $54.23.The base metals sector also gained 2.1% as December copper dipped two cents to US$3.05 a pound.Gold prices have been a major casualty of the Fed move to end QE. That is because the program of massive bond purchases had elevated inflation concerns. Traders had bought into gold as an inflation hedge but the program is now wrapping up and inflation is tame in most parts of the world.“When you are absent inflation in any meaningful way, it’s a real challenge to hold onto what has long been known as the best inflation hedge,” added Petursson. “So the outlook for gold and gold companies continues to be negative.”Also working against gold and other commodity prices has been a higher U.S. dollar. A stronger greenback makes it more expensive for holders of other currencies to buy oil and metals, which are dollar-denominated.The Toronto gold sector is down about 15% this week alone, with December bullion falling $27 on Friday to US$1,171.60 an ounce.The TSX ended last week ahead 69 points or 0.5% as stocks continue to claw back some of the losses racked up during a sell-off that peaked mid-October.The Dow industrials fared much better, gaining 585 points or 3.5%.
The report covers a range of issues dealing with strengthening the role of the private sector and entrepreneurship in financing for development and examines the key requirements for improving the overall business environment in developing countries. It focuses on six main criteria in that regard: appropriate and enforceable regulations; labour and related standards; access to finance; infrastructure; accurate timely information, and macro-economic stability.Mr. Annan also highlights measures that can create healthy firms and strengthen entrepreneurship in local economies, particularly creating conditions that promote skills training and learning. He stresses that entrepreneurship is responsible for much of the competition and innovation in the business world and is also held as central to nations trying to attain competitiveness in international markets. “Innovation” in the financing for development arena is defined in a broad sense, and includes the introduction of new goods and services, the development of new marketing strategies, the opening up of new markets and the creation of new industries in a given sector. The Secretary-General notes that entrepreneurs are generally divided into “necessity entrepreneurs”, who try to start up a business because they have no jobs, and “opportunity entrepreneurs”, who fulfil traditional entrepreneurship roles.As for pursuing opportunities for entrepreneurship in developing and least developed countries, the report suggests the strengthening of global public-private partnerships, boosting private sector networks, linking smaller business to help facilitate the transfer of technology and information, and targeting the poorest consumers, who are generally eager to purchase quality goods and services, in new and innovative ways. The overall focus of the Assembly’s High-Level Dialogue on Financing for Development will be on the status of worldwide efforts to implement the Monterrey Consensus and the way forward. The two-day meeting, set for 27 and 28 June, will be built around a series of formal and informal meetings and six interactive round-table discussions on issues that include international trade as an engine for development, and mobilizing domestic financial resources for development. The Monterrey Consensus is the landmark agreement adopted by world leaders in Mexico at the 2002 International Conference on Financing for Development (ICFD). It calls for the resources to meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the conditions that will enable freer trade, more foreign investment, debt relief and efficient government. The MDGs are a set of targets designed to halve or eradicate listed socio-economic ills by 2015.
Toyota sold 10.2 million vehicles worldwide, fewer than VW by Yuri Kageyama, The Associated Press Posted Jan 29, 2017 10:21 pm MDT Last Updated Jan 30, 2017 at 7:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email A visitor checks a Toyota Vitz hatchback subcompact car at a Toyota showroom in Tokyo, Monday, Jan. 30, 2017. Toyota has relinquished the title of the world’s biggest automaker, reporting Monday that it sold 10.175 million vehicles worldwide in 2016, fewer than Volkswagen’s 10.31 million. (AP Photo/Shizuo Kambayashi) TOKYO – Toyota has relinquished the title of the world’s biggest automaker, reporting Monday that it sold 10.175 million vehicles worldwide in 2016, fewer than Volkswagen’s 10.31 million.General Motors reports its tally next week. If GM’s number falls short, it will be the first time the German automaker has become No. 1.It’s a milestone achievement despite the taint to VW’s reputation from a huge scandal over cheating on emissions tests. Booming China sales helped offset that damage.Seiji Sugiura, senior auto analyst at Tokai Tokyo Research Institute, said the results highlight the importance of the Chinese market, where few of VW’s tainted diesel models are sold, and the popularity of VW’s widespread brand portfolio.“Volkswagen could stay at the top for the next few years,” he said.Toyota’s global sales last year were slightly better than in 2015, up 0.2 per cent, but not good enough to beat Volkswagen, which has the Audi, Porsche and Skoda brands, and boosted its global sales 3.8 per cent from the year before. GM makes the Cadillac and Opel cars.In 2015, Toyota sold 10.15 million vehicles while Volkswagen was second with 9.93 million and Detroit, Michigan-based GM third with 9.8 million.Sugiura said Toyota still is likely beating VW in terms of profitability. The Japanese automaker has focused on regional balance in production, lacks the range of brands that VW has, and is cautious about growth to avoid quality lapses.GM also is seeing strong growth in China, as are other automakers like Nissan Motor Co. and Hyundai Motor Co., Sugiura said.Toyota’s vehicle sales in Japan grew in 2016, but the domestic market is relatively small compared to the U.S. and China. Toyota sales fell on-year in the U.S., but they rose in China.GM was the top-selling automaker for more than seven decades until Toyota, which makes the Camry sedan, Prius hybrid and Lexus luxury models, surpassed it in 2008.Toyota held the global auto crown for the past four years after falling behind GM in 2011, when production was hit by a quake and tsunami in northeastern Japan.Toyota officials have repeatedly said they are not concerned with being No. 1 and just want to make good cars. Volkswagen was keen to dethrone Toyota but disavowed that goal after CEO Martin Winterkorn lost his job over the emissions scandal.“At Toyota, we are not focused on chasing volume. We believe that our sales volume is just the result of our focus on making ever-better cars and providing better customer experiences,” Toyota said in a statement.“Our goal is to be No. 1 with consumers by engineering and producing ever-better cars. We are grateful to every customer who has chosen a Toyota vehicle.”___Follow Yuri Kageyama on Twitter at https://twitter.com/yurikageyamaHer work can be found at http://bigstory.ap.org/content/yuri-kageyama
When Michigan State football wide receiver Keith Nichol hauled in quarterback Kirk Cousins’ Hail Mary pass in East Lansing, Mich., on Saturday night, the Wisconsin Badgers’ Bowl Championship Series title hopes may have come to an end. Back in Columbus though, Ohio State football’s hopes of appearing in the inaugural Big Ten championship game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis may have been revived. While it seems completely improbable, the truth is that the road to Big Ten title game looks like it once again leads through Ohio Stadium. The Buckeyes currently stand at 1-2 in Big Ten play, which is merely good for fifth place out of six teams in the Leaders Division. Yet dates with three of the teams they trail — Wisconsin, Purdue and Penn State — still remain on OSU’s schedule. The other team ahead of them is Illinois, whom the Buckeyes upset on Oct. 15 and who now has two conference losses as well. The Badgers and Boilermakers each have one loss in conference play, meaning that if the Buckeyes can defeat both of them, they will each have two losses along with the Buckeyes, with OSU holding the tiebreaker. The wildcard is Penn State, who is undefeated in conference play, but is about to begin a brutal stretch after what was arguably a light start to its conference schedule. The Nittany Lions will host Illinois and Nebraska in the upcoming weeks, and then travel to the ‘Shoe on Nov. 19 and then to Camp Randall Stadium to play the Badgers on Nov. 26. Wisconsin hasn’t lost at Camp Randall since Oct. 17, 2009, and currently boasts a 14-game winning streak on its home field. If the Nittany Lions can survive that stretch and win 3-of-4 or even all of those games, they will be very deserving of a trip to Indianapolis in the first week of December for the conference championship game. For Penn State, a team that has been rotating quarterbacks all season, and lost to the only ranked team it faced — a 27-11 loss to Alabama on Sept. 10 — the Nits have their work cut out for them. After all of the turmoil that’s arisen this season for the Buckeyes, from the array of suspensions, to the quarterback controversy, to the blown lead at Nebraska, a little help from their other Big Ten teams and a clutch performance or two, OSU could have a chance to go to Indianapolis and compete for the Big Ten Title. Wisconsin senior quarterback Russell Wilson, junior running back Montee Ball and the rest of an angry Badgers team will have something to say about that, but with more than 100,000 fans behind them in the ‘Shoe next weekend, the Buckeyes will have an opportunity to shock the college football world. Kickoff for OSU’s Saturday game against Wisconsin is set for 8 p.m.

With the reconvening of this commission, it is expected that the business of the Police, including promotions, can recommence.President David GrangerThis was related to the press by President David Granger during a recent press conference, in which he noted that he would have expected the PSC to have been reconvened by now. The three-year lifespan of the PSC has expired since September, 2017.“As far as the commission is concerned, I had hoped by now that it would have been in place,” Granger stated. “But I would not like to go into 2018 without that commission being in place. So I expect it (to have been reconvened) by the 31st of December.”The President has actually been finalising the names of the commissioners since last month, according to Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan, who has been unable to give a definite timeline for the reconstitution of the commission, but has noted this could happen before the end of December.Meanwhile, the President has also justified the part he played in halting the work of the PSC and the promotion of officers. Despite a court order stating that the Government had acted unconstitutionally, Granger maintained that he had had good cause for stopping the promotions.In the November 22nd court ruling in regard to the halting of promotion of personnel so listed, Chief Justice (acting) Roxanne George established that the President did breach the Constitution when he issued a directive to halt promotions.Minister of State, Joseph Harmon, in a letter dated July 27, wrote to the PSC informing that the President had directed that there be no consideration of promotion for members of the Guyana Police Force until further notice, and that this directive should be implemented immediately.The President in his defence posited that, “deserving persons were being superseded. One letter writer claimed that there had been no internal procedure for nominating officers. It is the convention that the Commissioners would convene a committee of the most senior officers to nominate persons. This had not been done,” he explained.According to Granger, he determined that there was a danger that persons who were not qualified would be recommended for promotion, while others more deserving would end up being left behind.“In addition to that, there were other allegations — which I felt were justified — that the actual selection process was compromised. So, taken as a whole, I felt that the integrity of the process was compromised, and that it would not be in the public’s interest to proceed with those nominations.” Granger explained.A perusal of the PSC’s list of personnel to be promoted had revealed that among those who were scheduled to be promoted were several senior officers who had been hauled before the Commission of Inquiry (CoI) into the assassination plot against President David Granger.Some of those personnel were: Assistant Police Commissioner Clifton Hicken, who was tipped to be promoted to Deputy Commissioner of Police; Crime Chief, Senior Superintendent Wendell Blanhum, who had been lined up for promotion to Assistant Commissioner.Head of Special Branch, Brian Eastman, was also listed to become a Senior Superintendent of Police; while Head of Major Crimes, Assistant Superintendent Mitchell Caesar, had been recommended for promotion to Deputy Superintendent.

Marvel Digital Comics : des superpouvoirs en kiosque…Et sur Internet en même temps !Vouloir dès sa sortie le dernier Spider-Man ne sera bientôt plus forcement synonyme d’une course effrénée chez le bouquiniste. Marvel sortira désormais les versions numériques le même jour que les versions papiers.X-Men, Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man… tous ces personnages sont possédés par une seule grande entreprise, Marvel. Depuis 1939 la firme américaine construit « l’Univers Marvel », ou ses héros peuvent non seulement évoluer séparément, mais aussi se rencontrer et s’entre-déchirer.Les applications mobiles Marvel permettent désormais de lire ces comics n’importe où. Mais il restait un délai entre les sorties papier et digitales, parfois des mois. Marvel veut faire du jour le jour. Pas tout à fait sur chaque tome toutefois, mais plutôt par pallier, par blocs de plusieurs numéros.Il faudra, par contre, attendre fin mars 2012 pour que tous les anciens titres majeurs de Marvel soient digitalisés. De plus, les comics tierce-partie, comme celui de Stephen King The Stand, ne pourront pas être mis à disposition. La technologie n’est pas une inconnue pour Marvel, la firme ayant déjà sorti des packs de CD-Rom de leur comics. Elle avait été pionnière dans le domaine l’année dernière, en numérisant notamment l’univers Ultimate. Ils n’ont donc pas l’intention de se laisser distancer par DC comics, qui annonçait en mai vouloir également effectuer des sorties papiers et numériques simultanées.Et pour tout de même encourager la vente traditionnelle, Marvel avantage ses aficionados; une autre de leurs initiatives est d’inclure avec les comics imprimés un code donnant droit à la version numérique. Avenging Spider-Man 1 sera le premier à en bénéficier, suivi de nombreux autres.Le 6 novembre 2011 à 13:24 • Maxime Lambert
BISMARCK, N.D. — Ten people charged with disorderly conduct during protests of the Dakota Access pipeline are the first to face trial. A joint misdemeanor trial is scheduled Monday for 10 people arrested Aug. 11 after they allegedly pushed through law enforcement lines or police tape to access a construction site.The Bismarck Tribune reported that prosecutors are asking that issues of tribal sovereignty be kept out of the trial, but defense attorneys say their clients have a right to explain why they were there. The judge has yet to rule on that.It’s the first trial tied to pipeline protests. The defendants are from nine states, including North Dakota, South Dakota, Oregon and Hawaii. The Morton County Sheriff’s Department says more than 570 people have been arrested in connection with the protests.
In a bipartisan letter to House and Senate leadership Monday, the American Soybean Association (ASA) and its 26 state and regional affiliates, along with more than 200 other farm and food groups, urged lawmakers to support the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). The groups encouraged Congress to continue its work to approve the TPP in 2016.“If faithfully implemented, TPP will help level the playing field for U.S. exports and create new opportunities for us in the highly competitive Asia-Pacific region,” wrote the groups. “The TPP is critical to the livelihood of the U.S. food and agriculture sector because it will create conditions that encourage economic growth and increased employment in rural areas and throughout the supply chain.”ASA is a leader on trade issues, as soybeans are the nation’s top agricultural export. Soybeans also see significant benefits from international trade in the form of increases in exported meats—particularly pork and chicken—from livestock that requires soybean meal as feed.“Exports are fundamental to the success of the agricultural industry because 95 percent of the world’s consumers live outside of the United States and 20 percent of U.S. farm income is from exports,” said the groups in the letter. “According to the American Farm Bureau Federation, TPP will boost annual net farm income in the United States by $4.4 billion.”ASA represents soybean farmers nationwide, and has state affiliates in Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin, as well as regional affiliates representing the Mid-Atlantic and Georgia/Florida.For a copy of the letter, please click here.

October 28, 2016 — The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NAS) have released a report on the state of molybdenum-99 (Mo-99) production, its utilization in medicine, and progress toward eliminating the use of highly enriched uranium (HEU) during production.The report was mandated by the American Medical Isotopes Production Act of 2012 and says, “The committee judges that there is a substantial (>50 percent) likelihood of severe molybdenum-99/technetium-99m supply shortages after October 2016, lasting at least until current global suppliers complete their planned capacity expansions.”Mo-99 is used to produce Tc-99m, the most commonly used radioisotope worldwide (about half in the United States). The production and supply of radioisotopes iodine-131 (I-131) and xenon-133 (Xe-133) are also a concern.Shortages of Mo-99 in recent years, due to reliance on aging reactors outside the United States, have led to major efforts around the globe to ensure a reliable supply. Since a major shortage of Mo-99 occurred in 2009, there has been pessimism about meeting future needs for Tc-99m.The NAS report points out that 75 percent of the global supply of Mo-99 for medical use is produced using HEU targets; the remaining 25 percent is produced with low enriched uranium (LEU targets).The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE/NNSA) is providing matching funding opportunities for research and development of domestic Mo-99 production methods that do not use HEU. Four NNSA-supported projects are currently underway, and each project is intended to supply half or more of U.S. needs. However, the report states that substantial domestic supplies are unlikely to be available before 2018 due to technical, financial, regulatory and market challenges.The study recommends that the U.S. government continue to work with the Canadian government to ensure that a plan is in place to restart Canadian supply if needed. Canada has said it will keep its reactor on stand-by until the end of March 2018, when it will shut down permanently.Progress is being made toward eliminating the use of HEU for medical isotope production; global Mo-99 suppliers have committed to eliminating HEU use in reactor targets and medical isotope production facilities, and financial support from NNSA and technical support from U.S. national laboratories are facilitating domestic production efforts. However, the continued availability of Mo-99 produced with HEU is an impediment. Companies using LEU find themselves at a competitive disadvantage.The NAS report recommends that the U.S. government and others should take additional actions to promote the wider use of non-HEU produced Mo-99/Tc-99m.The report outlines additional steps that could be taken:The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) could continue to offer the $10 add-on reimbursement for Tc-99m from non-HEU sources until HEU sources are no longer available in the U.S. CMS could also accelerate the retrospective analysis of the costs of medical procedure that utilize Tc-99m from non-HEU sources;NNSA could examine options to eliminate the availability of HEU targets for Mo-99 production to shorten the transition process. It might buy back U.S. origin HEU in raw or target form from global Mo-99 suppliers, once production with LEU targets is well established;Technetium generator manufacturers and nuclear pharmacies could continue efforts to further increase the use of Mo-99 from non-HEU sources; andThe U.S. Congress could restrict, or place financial penalties on, the import of Mo-99 produced with HEU targets (once non-HEU sources are widely available).Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) President Sally W. Schwarz, MS, RPh, BCNP, professor of radiology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, agrees in general with the report’s assessment and also noted, “Development of these new, non-HEU production methods is costly, even when shared with governments. It will take time and incremental changes to reach a balance point of fair reimbursement for increased costs for all members of the supply chain including Mo-99 producers, generator manufacturers, nuclear pharmacies, hospitals and patients.”Schwarz cautioned that the potential for short-term shortages is a real concern, but the global Mo-99 producers, processors and generator manufacturers, working with AIPES, will strive to manage any interim shortage problems that might occur.She is optimistic overall about Mo-99/Tc-99m production through non-HEU means and the development of a domestic source of Mo-99. “The innovative, safer production methods and facilities that will be coming online over the next few years will certainly help ensure a safe, reliable supply of Mo-99.”Read the 2017 article “FDA Clears Path for First Domestic Supply of Tc-99m Isotope.” Technology | Information Technology | June 20, 2019 DOSIsoft Receives FDA 510(k) Clearance for Planet Onco Dose Software DOSIsoft announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market Planet… read more News | Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) | June 07, 2019 Amsterdam University Medical Center Wins MR Solutions’ Image of the Year Award The Amsterdam University Medical Center has won MR Solutions’ Image of the Year 2019 award for the best molecular… read more X-ray images such as the one on the left fail to indicate many cases of advanced bone destruction caused by multiple myeloma, says the author of new guidelines on imaging for patients with myeloma and related disorders.

Early this month, the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) published its first set of standards for the augmented reality ( AR) and virtual reality ( VR) technologies. Now with AR/ VR added in the library, it will be able to provide support to an even larger number of audiences. CTA’s decision to include AR/VR within its free standard library is due to the ever-increasing popularity of AR/VR among the gamers across the globe. Also, the market for AR/VR accessories is quite competitive and continually improving. Brian Markwalter, senior VP of research and standards CTA, said that their first standard for AR/VR represents an important step in addressing key emerging technology areas. Brian pointed out that the reason for creating this standard is to promote the definitions created by the CTA’s AR/VR working group to spread awareness regarding different technologies and experiences. This standard helps the industry create a blueprint which can support the AR/VR technologies more effectively. The CTA-2069 publication or “Definitions and Characteristics of Augmented and Virtual Reality Technologies”, introduces various terms based on the evolving and upcoming technologies such as Augmented reality (AR), Mixed reality (MR), Virtual reality (VR) videos and images, X reality, outside-in tracking and room-scale VR. You can find the free standards library easily online for free. This library gives you complete transparency and insight on the standards being used across the industry. Standards which cover and improve the accuracy of the key aspects of the consumer tech industry including audio, video, health, fitness, closed captioning, etc. The new standard has made it to market at the right time. CTA Sales and Forecasts report states that VR has become a $ 1 billion sector in the U.S and 4.9 million units will be sold in 2018 which is a 25 percent bump from 2017. It will also generate $ 1.2 billion in revenues. CTA accredits the boost to the growing popularity and market among AR/VR gamers within the sector. According to David McIntyre, the Senior Vice President of strategy and standards, Xperi Corporation, “Standardized, market-centric definitions are an important first step for the industry”. He also said how he’s looking forward to increased industry involvement while CTA works on other areas of XR (which is any hardware that combines aspects of AR, MR, and VR) standardization in service of the industry and consumers. For more coverage on CTA’s first AR/VR standard, check out the official CTA press release.

Share in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, News, Servicing U.S. Supreme Court: Obduskey Foreclosure Case Counterarguments “Unconvincing” The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on the case of Obduskey v. McCarthy & Holthus LLP Wednesday morning, finding that businesses engaged in nonjudicial foreclosure proceedings are not considered “debt collectors” under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.The Justices ruled 9-0 in the case, with Justice Stephen Breyer writing the opinion and Justice Sonia Sotomayor also penning a concurring opinion. You can read the full text of the opinion by clicking here.The court’s opinion called Obduskey’s counterarguments “unconvincing.” The opinion continued:First, he suggests that the limited-purpose definition is not superfluous because it was meant to cover ‘repo men’—a category of security-interest en-forcers who he says would not otherwise fall within the primary defi-nition of ‘debt collector.’ The limited-purpose definition, however, speaks broadly of ‘the enforcement of security interests,’ §1692a(6),not ‘the enforcement of security interests in personal property.’ Second, Obduskey claims that the Act’s venue provision, §1692i(a), which covers legal actions brought by ‘debt collectors’ to enforce in-terests in real property, only makes sense if those who enforce security interests in real property are debt collectors subject to all prohibi-tions and requirements that come with that designation. The venue provision, however, does nothing to alter the definition of a debt collector. Third, Obduskey argues that McCarthy engaged in more than security-interest enforcement by sending notices that any ordinary homeowner would understand as an attempt to collect a debt. Here, however, the notices sent by McCarthy were antecedent steps re-quired under state law to enforce a security interest, and the Act’s (partial) exclusion of ‘the enforcement of security interests’ must also exclude the legal means required to do so. Finally, Obduskey fears that this Court’s decision will permit creditors and their agents toengage in a host of abusive practices forbidden by the Act. But the Court must enforce the statute that Congress enacted, and Congress is free expand the FDCPA’s reach if it wishes.Commenting on the ruling, David Scheffel, Partner at Dorsey & Whitney and co-chair of the firm’s Consumer Financial Practices Group said, “This decision essentially gives law firms and lenders more protection in non-judicial foreclosure states. In these jurisdictions, homeowners and borrowers will no longer be able to file lawsuits under the FDCPA against law firms who are pursuing foreclosures. This essentially eliminates a heavily used practice by plaintiffs’ attorneys. Ultimately, this should have the effect of reducing the cost that lenders/servicers bear in terms of getting to a final foreclosure in these states as the FDCPA lawsuits delay this process significantly.”In 2007, Dennis Obduskey obtained a loan for $329,940 to buy a residential property in Bailey, Colorado, and defaulted in 2009. Later in 2014, Wells Fargo hired McCarthy & Holthus, to pursue a non-judicial foreclosure on the property. On 8/12/2015, petitioner filed suit against M&H and multiple Wells Fargo entities in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado. The firm and the Wells Fargo entities moved to dismiss the complaint, and on 7/19/16 the district court granted the motions and denied the Temporary Restraining Order.On the same day that the district court issued its order, Obduskey filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy and appealed to the 10th Circuit and on 1/19/18 the court of appeals affirmed the lower court’s ruling, which sought to interpret the congressional intent in passing the FDCPA by analyzing the plain language of the statute and policy considerations. A total of nine Amicus briefs by 19 entities were filed in support of McCarthy & Holthus, LLP.In February, the Legal League 100 held a webinar that explored the potential outcomes of the Dennis Obduskey vs. McCarthy & Holthus Supreme Court case and the impact of these outcomes on both the mortgage industry and the legal professionals supporting it. The webinar was presented by Matthew Podmenik, Managing Partner, McCarthy & Holthus Law Firm.Earlier in November 2018, the amicus curiae brief filed by the Legal League in support of McCarthy & Holthus contended that law firms acting on behalf of their mortgage servicer clients by completing the non-judicial foreclosure process in states where permitted are not subject to regulation under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). The brief noted that such servicers are not collecting a debt as defined under the plain language of the statute. The brief also stated the possibility of states with carefully crafted foreclosure laws designed to protect borrowers and lenders being compelled to rewrite their laws in order to comply with the FDCPA.
