In a recent study presented in March at the Strata Data Conference in San Jose, California, Dell EMC researchers Mauro Damo, Wei Lin, Ronaldo Braga, and William Schneider demonstrated that using machines to analyze medical images—specifically diseased human organs—can minimize medical errors and speed up disease diagnosis.Using more than 5,000 magnetic resonance images (MRI) scanned along the transverse plane from the Cancer Imaging Archive, the Dell EMC data scientists attempted to identify bladder cancer using a six-layer convolution neural network (CNN). Such networks have successfully identified faces, objects, and traffic signs, and are used to power vision in robots and self-driving cars.The Dell EMC study tracked four out of fourteen types of primary tumors—T2a, T2b, T3a, and T4a—in patients already diagnosed with bladder cancer. Algorithms were also used to identify significant differences among the images to assess what features could be relevant for bladder cancer detection. Bladder cancer, the fourth most common cancer in men, impacts 430,000 people and their families each year around the world. The direct medical cost of bladder cancer care was $125B in 2010 globally.To conduct the research, team members used powerful hardware and open-source software, including:Dell EMC PowerEdge servers with Intel Xeon E5-2680 processors @ 2.7GHz with 8 cores and 384 GBNVIDIA GRID K2 with 2 GPUsPython open-source script languageTensorFlow 1.4 open-source deep learning packageSimpleITK open-source image transformation packageResearchers learned that GPU and CPU memory are more relevant than cycles in hardware, and that out of memory errors are very common when working with medical data. For models that take weeks to run, it’s better to improve memory and cycles or use a distributed platform; otherwise, it’s preferable to have more memory to fit all your weights initialization and mini batch processes.Using the six-layer convolutional neural network (CNN), the study’s deep learning model improved Top 1 accuracy from 72.3 percent to 81.3 percent, showing the potential to explore similar techniques in practical applications. Researchers noted that more data in the early stages of cancer, the analysis of more types of primary tumors, and the use of independent CNN models for all planes (coronal, transverse, and sagittal) would likely improve results.To learn more about how deep learning can enhance research and processes in healthcare, financial services, retail, manufacturing, and other industries, explore Dell EMC Ready Solutions for AI, Machine and Deep Learning or contact your Dell EMC representative at 1-866-438-3622.

SymQuest Acquires Business Operations of UBIQ Imaging SolutionsSOUTH BURLINGTON, VT Larry Sudbay, President and Chief Executive Officer of SymQuest Group, Inc. has announced that the company has recently acquired the business operations of UBIQ Imaging Solutions, with offices in Portland and Bangor, Maine. In addition to serving its clients throughout Vermont, New Hampshire and New York, the acquisition of UBIQ Imaging Solution’s business operations will allow SymQuest to also service clients in the Seacoast region, as well as the immediate inland areas of both New Hampshire and Maine.Designing, installing and supporting business technologies that handle the information flow of electronic and physical communications, SymQuest currently houses its headquarters in South Burlington, Vermont and has offices in Rutland, Vermont, as well as Plattsburgh, New York, and Keene and West Lebanon, New Hampshire. SymQuest employs 130 technology professionals. The acquisition of UBIQ will add 20 additional technology professionals.SymQuest has a history of growth and acquisition as evidenced by its purchase of IniNet, Inc. in Keene, New Hampshire in 2004; its expansion into the Plattsburgh, New York region in 2006; and most recently, its acquisition of UBIQ Imaging Solutions in Maine.”We are pleased to join forces with the UBIQ staff who share our standards of delivering service above client expectations and ensuring that clients are ahead of the curve in the fast-paced world of technology. In order to continue to provide our clients with the best resources, we must constantly evolve and geographical growth is a natural part of that equation,” says Sudbay.SymQuest’s Continued Pattern of GrowthSudbay founded SymQuest with Pat Robins in 1996 – a $10 million business at that time. SymQuest furthered its expansion with the acquisition of IniNet, Inc. in 2004. SymQuest gained a well-developed presence in the Keene, New Hampshire region. Founded in 1996, IniNet provided IT services, network design and consulting.Sudbay explains, “The integration of IniNet’s business and resources of technical people provides a remarkable advantage for our clients in New Hampshire, Southern Vermont and Massachusetts. We shared similar philosophies and cultures. As a result of the acquisition, SymQuest has increased market reach, providing better levels of service.”IniNet’s former owner and current Service Director for SymQuest’s Keene office, Scott Vickery adds, “IniNet had reached a stage of growth when an investment in resources and infrastructure was required for continued success. This was just an innate progression towards success for everyone involved: the clients and both the employees of IniNet and SymQuest.”In 2006, SymQuest opened their Plattsburgh office. The branch has experienced success in the region and continues to grow, establishing a solid presence for the company in the Northern New York market.Sudbay commenced talks regarding a potential acquisition of UBIQ Imaging Solution’s business operations with its President and Founder, Jim Chamoff in early 2007. Locally owned, the Portland-based company provides digital imaging products to businesses throughout Maine and southern New Hampshire, including a complete range of hardware and software options for corporate and small businesses. UBIQs products and services include color imagers, corporate printers, small office printers, faxes, document management, secure printing and cost accounting.Chamoff has a career spanning more than two decades in the office equipment business. Throughout his career, Chamoff has excelled in delivering his extensive industry knowledge, personal enthusiasm and business experience to clients in Maine and southern New Hampshire.”We are thrilled about working together. SymQuest brings vast resources and benefits to UBIQ and its clients, such as: IT expertise, a Network Operations Center and 24/7 remote monitoring capabilities.”UBIQ was formed in late 2001 and has experienced significant growth during the past six years. We have approximately 20 employees between our Bangor and Portland offices; so, increasing from 20 employees to 150 is a positive development for both our internal operations and the clients we serve.”What Larry and his team have built at SymQuest is more than impressive. I immediately realized that my vision for the future of UBIQ is precisely what SymQuest is today, and that we are moving in the same direction,” said Chamoff.”Going forward, SymQuest will continue to expand the areas we serve with a constantly developing range of services. Currently, we are successfully transitioning from an emergency-based support approach to a comprehensive management services package – a more proactive approach,” says Sudbay.

NZ Herald 22 May 2020Family First Comment: Watch this space…“Three people shared a home and a bed for 15 years, but their relationship isn’t recognised by law… The court ruling noted that polyamorous couples had asked the Law Commission to recognise their relationships when it recently reviewed the law. The Law Commission said at the time that excluding multi-partner relationships – which were “functionally similar” to marriages, civil unions or de facto relationships – could be difficult to justify. (!!) …But it eventually recommended to Government that the PRA should continue to cover only intimate relationships between two people.”When gender doesn’t matter in marriage, why should number?#protectmarriage #onemanonewomanThree people from a polyamorous relationship are in a battle over how to split a valuable Auckland property after they broke up.In the first case of its kind in New Zealand, the High Court ruled that the Property Relationships Act (PRA) could not be applied to people in a multi-partner relationship.The judge in the case, Justice Anne Hinton, also said the Family Court could not “stretch” the law to accommodate a three-way relationship.The case relates to a couple, Lilach and Brett Paul, who married in 1993.In 1999, Lilach met Fiona Mead and in 2002 the three of them formed a polyamorous relationship.They moved into a four-hectare property in Kumeu, which had just been purchased in Mead’s name for $533,000. She paid the deposit of $40,000.They lived together at the property for 15 years, and mostly shared the same room and bed, the court ruling said.READ MORE: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12334075Man and two women who had three-way relationship in court battle over $2m farmStuff co.nz 22 May 2020A man and two women who were in a polyamorous relationship are now in a court battle over a property where they lived for 15 years.The relationship was the subject of the first ever judgment on polyamory and the Property (Relationships) Act, which was released on Friday.According to the judgement, Lilach and Brett Paul married in February 1998.The following year Lilach met Fiona Mead and in 2002 the three formed a polyamorous relationship.Polyamory is the practice of engaging in multiple sexual relationships with the consent of all the people involved.READ MORE: https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/121597356/man-and-two-women-who-had-threeway-relationship-in-court-battle-over-2m-farm?cid=app-iPhoneKeep up with family issues in NZ.

Peralta was the third SC Chief Justice appointee of President Rodrigo Duterte after previously choosing Lucas Bersamin and Teresita Leonor De Castro./PN “He made many landmark decisions that reverberate to this time, which include the imposition of the death penalty on a policeman who used his service firearm to shoot an 11-year-old boy while flying his kite on a rooftop in People vs. Fallorina; the first conviction for plunder involving a cashier of the Bureau of Internal Revenue in People vs. Manalili; the first and only conviction of Qualified Bribery under Article 211-A of the Revised Penal Code, as amended, involving a substantial number of police officers in the case of suspected foreign drug-traffickers,” Panelo said. “We are certain that with Chief Justice Peralta at the helm of the Supreme Court, the Judiciary will continue to be well-managed as it thrives to uphold the principles of judicial excellence, integrity and independence,” Panelo said. According to Panelo, the Malacañang is confident that the judicial branch will effectively fulfill its core functions with Peralta, who will serve as the SC CJ for the next three years. He added that Peralta convicted the most number of accused involved in big time drug cases and other serious crimes. Vice President Leni Robredo is off to a good start one week into leading the government’s crackdown on illegal drugs, Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo says. PCOO Peralta’s track record is unquestionable, Panelo said, as he has served the judiciary for more than three decades in various capacities, a trial court judge, associate justice and presiding justice of the Sandiganbayan and associate justice of the SC. MANILA – The Supreme Court (SC) will remain independent under the tenure of newly-appointed Chief Justice Diosdado Peralta, Presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo said.

The former Tottenham keeper has arrived from Norwich, where he had worked since 2014. Parks worked with Sherwood when he was in charge at Spurs and left following Sherwood’s exit from White Hart Lane in May 2014. The 52-year-old spent six years at Tottenham, training Hugo Lloris, Brad Friedel, Heurelho Gomes and Carlo Cudicini, and was goalkeeping coach of the year in 2013. Former Villa number two Kevin MacDonald returned to the club as assistant manager last week, joining new first-team coach Mark Robson and performance analyst Seamus Brady at Villa Park. Sherwood lost his first game in charge on Saturday as Villa went down 2-1 at home to Stoke to leave them second bottom of the Barclays Premier League. They go to Newcastle at the weekend having lost their last six league games. Tony Parks has joined Aston Villa as goalkeeping coach as Tim Sherwood continues to revamp his backroom staff.
