Fort Erie police incident under investigation

In Fort Erie neighbours are still in shock after a dramatic scene at Douglas Memorial Hospital last night.A police officer shot a man at the Urgent Care Centre, after being called to the hospital for reports of a stabbing.At around 8 o’clock last night, Niagara Regional Police were called to the Douglas Memorial Urgent Care Centre after a 61 year-old man had been stabbed.According to the Special Investigations Unit, when officers arrived at the hospital they saw the 61 year-old man with knife wounds but were quickly approached by a 29 year-old man. There was some sort of interaction between police and the younger man before an officer shot him.The SIU has taken over the investigation, they step in when police are reportedly involved in a death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault. The hospital was closed last night, but has since reopened.Those who live in homes right across from the hospital were startled to see the normally quiet facility, swarmed by police.“There was a lot of activity next door. At first we thought it was a big accident, then rumours started going.. you know, very scary”CHCH asked the SIU if the 2 victims were known to each other, if the 29 year-old man who was shot by police had a weapon, or if either of the victims were a patient or staff member at the hospital. The SIU says these questions are all part of the investigation, and wouldn’t comment.We also asked if the 29 year-old was the one who stabbed the 61 year-old they said that’s under investigation.Both victims were taken to a hospital in Buffalo. Both are in stable condition and are expected to survive.The SIU and representatives from the hospital did not want to comment on camera, but in a press release, Niagara Health says there are no safety risks at the hospital at this time. The SIU are asking anyone who may have video footage of the incident to upload it on their website. read more

Annan supports OAS call on Haitians to resolve political crisis

The Secretary-General has followed with “deep interest” the political situation in Haiti since the closure of the International Civilian Support Mission there, spokesman Manoel de Almeida a Silva told the press at UN Headquarters. “He was encouraged by the joint OAS – CARICOM mission to Haiti, which recently reported its findings to the 31st General Assembly of the OAS in San Jose, Costa Rica.”Mr. Annan notes that the OAS has adopted a resolution calling upon all Haitians to commit themselves to addressing the current crisis. That resolution was based on the report by the OAS-CARICOM mission, and in consideration of the recent initiatives by Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.”The Secretary-General fully supports this call and all other efforts by the Organization of American States and the Caribbean Community, which aim to strengthen democracy and respect for human rights in Haiti,” the spokesman said. read more

Eritreas restrictions on UN flights hamper peace operation senior envoy says

Speaking at a press briefing in Addis Ababa, Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative, Legwaila Joseph Legwaila, said if Eritrea’s decision was not reversed, it would halve the usefulness of the UN mission (UNMEE) to the parties.He also warned that there would be more challenges of this type to the peace process as long as the current stalemate continues and called for decisive measures to achieve a breakthrough.Meanwhile, at a news conference in Asmara, UNMEE Force Commander Major-General Rajender Singh told the journalists that the decision had prompted peacekeepers to step up their foot patrols.He also said the ban seriously impaired the ability of blue helmets to monitor the Temporary Security Zone between Ethiopia and Eritrea, which fought a two-year border war that ended in 2000.The Force Commander added that the restrictions put peacekeepers at greater risk, especially those in remote areas who would not have access to flights in the event of a medical emergency requiring evacuation.Earlier this week, Secretary-General Kofi Annan and the UN Security Council both called on the Government of Eritrea to reverse its decision immediately.In New York today, Mr. Annan’s spokesman said the UN had been in contact with the Eritrean authorities, but had received no explanation for the restrictions. The UN hoped the matter would be resolved quickly, Stephane Dujarric said.Asked about UNMEE’s helicopter assets, he said the Mission maintains a fleet of eight – six MI-8s and two Bell – used for such activities as monitoring, delivering supplies and medical evacuation. UNMEE usually launched five or six reconnaissance flights out of a total of 20 flights daily. Three camps are dependent on UNMEE supply flights because they are remote, although they can be reached by road, according to the spokesman. read more

UN launches massive clothing distribution to Congolese refugees ahead of rainy season

“The distribution of the clothes is addressing one of the most pressing humanitarian needs of the internally displaced population,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) DRC representative Eusebe Hounsokou said today.The massive operation, assisted by a local non-governmental organization (NGO) called ADSSE, began last Saturday at the Gety camp, home to more than 46,000 internally displaced persons (IDP), and will move later this week to Kagaba camp, which houses almost 13,000, UNHCR said.Last week, the agency gave heads of households at the camps tokens entitling them to trousers, skirts, blouses, shirts and t-shirts, according to their needs.The majority of the IDPs in both camps arrived between June and July, fleeing from violent clashes between the army and rebel forces. Most left all their belongings behind and are in urgent need of clothing, footwear and soap, UNHCR said.The operation is the agency’s second such effort to help Congolese IDPs. In October, UNHCR provided over 6,300 IDPs in Katanga province with a return package that included kitchen sets, mosquito nets, blankets, plastic sheets, jerry cans and tools to construct basic shelter.The agency is also currently planning return and reintegration projects in the Ituri region that should allow one quarter of the Gety and Kagaba camp dwellers to travel home early next year.A key challenge UNHCR faces is extremely heavy seasonal rainfall, which has already caused massive mudslides in South Kivu province last week, halting the repatriation of thousands of returnees by boat from Tanzania, UNCHR said.Plans to restart ferry service across Lake Tanganyika today have been postponed after huge rocks, some the size of trucks, cascaded down the mountainside, blocking the main road between the port of Baraka, where refugees disembark, and Uvira, where a fleet of UNHCR vehicles used to transport the returnees remains stranded, the agency said.“We hope to start the repatriation movements again as soon as possible,” said UNHCR spokesperson Jennifer Pagonis.She told reporters in Geneva today that UN agencies in the area, including UN peacekeepers, are hammering out a plan to clear roads.At the beginning of the year, clashes between army and rebel forces triggered the flight of an estimated 1.6 million IDPs, including 375,000 in the Ituri region. As calm slowly returns to the country, thousands have already begun to return to their homes, but 420,000 Congolese refugees still live in surrounding countries, including 130,000 in Tanzania.Meanwhile, the Security Council reiterated today in a formal statement its tribute to Congolese voters for showing their civic responsibility, and welcomed the support provided by the UN and other international partners for the holding of the elections.“The Security Council recalls that these elections are historic for the Democratic Republic of the Congo and looks forward to the installation of a democratically elected government,” said Security Council President for November Jorge Voto-Bernales, Ambassador of Peru, who welcomed the poll in comments to the press last week. read more

Congolese warlord Bosco Ntaganda now in custody of International Criminal Court

Mr. Ntaganda has been indicted by the Court on seven counts of war crimes and three counts of crimes against humanity allegedly committed in Ituri province in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) between 2002 and 2003. He turned himself in to the United States Embassy in Rwanda on Monday.“This is a good day for victims in the DRC and for international justice,” ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said in a news release. “Today those who are alleged to have long suffered at the hands of Bosco Ntaganda can look forward to the future and the prospect of justice taking its course.” Also welcoming the transfer was Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who “strongly believes that it will advance the cause of peace in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as well as the fight against impunity in the region,” according to a statement issued by his spokesperson.In addition, the members of the Security Council issued a statement to the press, in which they viewed Mr. Ntaganda’s surrender “as a positive step for international criminal justice as well as toward the restoration of peace and security in eastern DRC.” Mr. Ntaganda’s initial appearance before the Court’s pre-trial chamber is set for 26 March. The Court noted that this is the first time that a suspect has surrendered voluntarily to its custody, and expressed its gratitude for the support and cooperation of the Dutch and US authorities, both in Rwanda and in the Netherlands. Ms. Bensouda also thanked all actors “who have been working for so long to make this day possible.” At the same time, she added that, “as we welcome progress in one case, others also subject to ICC warrants in the region remain at large.”She urged all States now to renew and refocus their efforts to secure the arrest of Sylvestre Mudacumura, the head of the Rwandan rebel group known as the FDLR, and all others subject to ICC warrants for alleged crimes committed in DRC who are still at large.The ICC is the first permanent international court set up to prosecute individuals for genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and the crime of aggression. read more

High school students partner with Goodman to help Heartland Forest

A youthful perspective was just what Elisabeth Graham was looking for when she entered a lecture hall packed with high school students from the District School Board of Niagara (DSBN).Graham, Executive Director at Heartland Forest in Niagara Falls, was at Brock University Tuesday, Dec. 11 to judge the final four student teams as they presented their findings in a term-long marketing project aimed at bringing more people to the local nature centre.The exercise, which was facilitated by Brock’s Goodman School of Business, saw students from A.N. Myer Secondary School in Niagara Falls and Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School in St. Catharines deliver 15-minute presentations focused on various marketing opportunities available to Heartland.Heartland Forest Executive Director Elisabeth Graham with Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School student Gage Mitchener.While preparing for their final presentations in front of Graham and a panel of other judges, students from both high schools met with mentors from the Brock Marketing Association to plan their strategies.“We wanted to expose high school students to what it’s like to complete a university-level marketing exercise,” said David DiPietro, Co-ordinator, Experiential Education in Goodman.For 16-year-old Sir Winston Churchill student Gage Mitchener, the knowledge gained from the preparation sessions unearthed new strategies she hopes to use in post-secondary-level business studies in the next few years.“My presentation skills became more relaxed and I learned how to target my audience,” she said.Mitchener’s group, which also included Grade 11 students Austin Holtby, Griffen Mason and Ryan Daniel, focused their presentation on an improved social media presence for Heartland while also proposing additional initiatives, such as external community involvement opportunities and online merchandise sales.Graham said the new ideas offered by all four teams would be taken back to the organization to engage additional audiences.“Heartland is for all ages and all abilities, so certainly the high school age group has a very distinct voice,” she said. “They were full of unique ideas that we have not explored before and that is really inspiring.”When it came time to choose a winner, Graham and the other judges awarded first prize to Mitchener and her teammates.“It felt really good to win,” said Mitchener. “Seeing our work recognized outside of school and knowing that our marketing plan could be used in the real world was great.”DiPietro hopes partnerships like the one between DSBN and Goodman will continue to introduce students to the type of experiential opportunities available at Brock.“We try to implement experiential exercises in programs across the board,” he said. “Learning how to complete them effectively while still in high school can be extremely beneficial and better prepare students for their next steps.”For Graham, regular partnerships between Heartland Forest and Brock represent ongoing growth for the University and the nature centre.“Whether it’s with graduate programs, in Goodman or on this new project with high school students, there have been benefits from every single project we have worked on with Brock,” she said. “Our partnerships always further Heartland’s mission.” read more

Lexar launches Echo MX and ZX ultraportable USB backup drives

first_imgFor most people, backing up data involves a large external hard drive on your desk, a regular DVD burn, or an online backup service. But some people want to make backups on the go and so turn to a portable hard drive or USB stick.Lexar is aiming to cater for these users who want an ultra-portable solution with two new backup drives called Echo MX and Echo ZX.

Ghost in the Shell Arise announced by Production IG

first_imgEven if you don’t take a great interest in anime, chances are you’ve heard of the most popular titles such as Neon Genesis Evangelion, Akira, and Ghost in the Shell. Evangelion is already in the middle of a re-release of sorts, albeit it in a new four-part re-edited movie form. Akira keeps popping up in the news due to the potential of a live action movie version. But Ghost in the Shell hasn’t been heard about much since 2005.Today, that changed as a new anime series has been announced entitled Ghost in the Shell: Arise. Very little is known about the project other than work began this year by acclaimed studio Production I.G. (Patlabor, Blood: The Last Vampire, the Kill Bill Vol. 1 animated sequence, and previous Ghost in the Shell releases).Full details of the new project are expected to be revealed on February 12 at a press conference in Japan that will be streamed worldwide using YouTube. We can expect clips from the anime to appear the night of the 12th as well, after an event being held at the TOHO Cinemas in Roppongi.Rest assured the global popularity of the Ghost in the Shell series will mean Arise sees a release in Western markets, we may just have to wait a while to get it.The image you see above that has been released for the announcement of Arise has inevitably thrown up a few questions about where the series will sit in the timeline. The female in the image is main character Motoko Kusanagi, but she looks a lot younger than how she was depicted in the movies and Stand Alone Complex series. Could Arise be set in an earlier timeframe?You’d think that was clear from the age of the girl, but Kusanagi is a cyborg and can change body. So there’s just as much chance this is a continuation of the timeline, but she’s moved to a younger shell.via Anime News Network and the official Ghost in the Shell: Arise websitelast_img read more

Geek 101 How to make a bow in Minecraft

first_imgMinecraft is a world in which you can almost do whatever you want. With an extensive modding scene, the ability to build structures by hand or through importing floor plans with third-party software, or creating machinery thanks to the various cogs and parts in the game. The game is so open and sometimes you need a little bit of help, say, when you are trying to make a bow.Minecraft is a truly open sandbox. However, if you’re playing on survival mode, you aren’t going to get very far unless you can defend yourself. Punching won’t do much, and a sword still requires you to be close to an enemy. So, you need a bow and some arrows to safely rain death upon your foes so you can get back to building that huge statue of your dog.MaterialsFirst off, you’ll need the proper materials. To make a bow, it requires three sticks and three strings. To craft sticks, you have to get wood from trees and craft it into wood planks by dumping it into the crafting table. Then, take two wood planks and arranged it in a vertical line in the crafting table. This will net you some sticks.In order to get string, you’ll have to go hunting for either spiders or cobwebs. Destroy either and there is a chance string will pop.RecipeIn Minecraft, the crafting patterns somewhat resemble the finished form, so in order to craft a bow, you essentially make a bow-shape.Bows have a durability ever since version 1.0.0, so they’ll eventually break. You’ll either need to make more, or repair them with the Anvil. If you’re feeling aggressive, you can also go seek out skeletons, which have a chance to drop a damaged bow on death.ArrowsIn order to stock your bow with ammo, you’ll need one feather, one flint, and one stick per four arrows. You can find feathers by either stalking (they’ll randomly drop) or killing chickens, and you can get flint from mining gravel.Place them in a vertical line starting with the feather at the bottom, stick in the middle, and flint on top.Image credit: dynamite2001last_img read more

Le climat à découvert un livre pour les climatosceptiques

first_imgLe climat à découvert : un livre pour les climato-sceptiquesLes climatologues français ont rédigé un ouvrage collectif visant à répondre à la vague climato-sceptique qui a accompagné et suivi le sommet de Copenhague, à la fin de l’année 2009. Dans un souci de transparence, ils présentent un ouvrage baptisé Le climat à découvert, dans lequel ils dévoilent les coulisses de leurs recherches.Les climatologues tentent de répondre à toutes les questions que l’on peut se poser sur leurs recherches, dans un ouvrage collectif baptisé Le climat à découvert. Dans ce livre ils entendent faire taire les critiques émanant des climato-sceptiques, ceux qui à l’instar de Claude Allègre, remettent en question le lien scientifiquement admis entre le réchauffement de la planète et les émissions de gaz à effet de serre (GES). “Au moment du sommet de Copenhague, et dans les mois qui ont suivi, on a subi une attaque frontale climato-sceptique assez violente. L’ensemble de la communauté a été atteinte dans sa chair”, rappelleCatherine Jeandel, directrice de recherche au CNRS ayant co-dirigé avec Rémy Mosseri l’ouvrage collectif, et dont les propos sont rapportés par 20 minutes. “On n’est pas dans la polémique, on a travaillé avec les auteurs pour qu’ils décrivent les choses le plus factuellement possible, de façon la plus transparente possible”, explique-t-elle.À lire aussiQui est Greta Thunberg, proposée pour un prix Nobel à seulement 16 ans ?Dans Le climat à découvert, géologues, atmosphériciens, océanographes, géographes, palynologues, glaciologues et géologues expliquent le fonctionnement du climat et détaillent la façon dont ils mènent leurs recherches, les outils qu’ils utilisent pour évaluer et prédire les changements climatiques. Tous “s’accordent sur le fait qu’une augmentation du CO2 dans l’atmosphère induit un réchauffement global du climat”, soulignela physicienne Sandrine Bony en évoquant les simulations réalisées au moyen de modèles informatiques. Toutefois, certaines données varient selon ces modèles, comme “l’amplitude du réchauffement global, la réponse des nuages, la position précise des changements régionaux de précipitation et la réponse des moussons, la modification du nombre et de l’intensité des tempêtes”, souligne-t-elle.Les chercheurs admettent les nombreuses incertitudes qui planent sur leurs recherches, et assurent qu’elles sont les moteurs qui les poussent à sans cesse améliorer leurs méthodes.

September 11, 2016 at 12:58 am Cameron Huff I don’t know where any of this has to do with me being a Cena fan. I didn’t even say I was one. I’m a pro wrestling fan. What you’re doing is trying to find a reason to continue this conversation. Like I said, I laugh cause I want to. Sure, Punk can kick my ass because I don’t train in MMA as a full-time job. But I can laugh when I want to. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one laughing. Again, I laugh because of the way he came across and thought he was so special. People forget that Vince allowed him to be the longest reigning WWE champ in a long time. Just being able to do that is a big deal, so just because he didn’t get to main event WrestleMania, he whined about it and left. He might say he left cause he was tired and on the road all the time, but if Vince told him he was main eventing Mania he would have stayed. He’s a hypocrite in my opinion. Again, if you love him, good for you. I’m done with this conversation. what’s so funny? Are you a MMA fighter? I bet he could kick your ass glad i didnt spend money to see that fight. he just ran right at him and got taken to the ground right after the fight started. i mean it just showed you how liitle trainning punk has when you just run at a pro mma fighter and show no regard to his takedown ability. that and the lack of punk studying gall . gall submitted two other guy prior to punk in the 1st round via rear naked choke, so what does punk do? run straight at him, gets taken to the ground and gets choked out, which is the complete opposite of what he should have done. punk didnt deserve to be in the ufc and tonight just proved that. If I’d been in Gall’s camp, I’d have had him step into the cage, kneel down, check his watch, and shout “It’s clobberin’ tiiiiiiiiiiime!” Just to stab a bit, and to take away any impact or pop if Punk himself did it.

Twitter you didn’t miss anything lol. thats because punk didn’t actually do anything all he did was lay on the mat curled up against the cage for most of the fight. at least lesnar went out and fought those 1:30 against mir a mma vet none the less in his first ufc fight. punk didn’t. gall is fairly new to the pro mma circuit. if that was mir taken on punk instead mir would ended that fight in 30 seconds. so there is a big diff between a guy like mir and a guy like gall. diff is lesnar was a supeior amature wrestler 2 time nnca champ he didnt need much to correct his mistakes he made against mir the first fight and it showed when he dominated mir the second fight. punk on the other hand has no legit fighting or grappling background and it showed tonight. he went up against a brown belt and got destroyed. i’m sorry but you can’t expect to fight in the ufc with no legit fighting or grappling background and expect to become anything near their level anytime soon it takes many years of trainning to fight at that level which punk will never have because by the time he gets to that level he will be too old to fight in the ufc.

To have your boss tell you you’re the top guy in the company but show the world that he thinks someone else is at every opportunity, would get under anyone’s skin.

For the first time, the world is recognizing a Turks and Caicos Islander for science and innovation… and that individual is soon to be resigned as CEO of Digicel, E Jay Saunders. E Jay has been named one of the XPrize Vanguards… one of 400 inventors worldwide who are commissioned to promote and amass teams that will take on the challenge of eradicating illiteracy across the planet. It is a challenge which will pay the winning team $15 million dollars… and with a small sampling of educators in the room at the NHIB office this morning, E Jay shared that he wants to build a Turks and Caicos or Caribbean Team to attempt the challenge. The Team would have to come up with a device to teach children educational fundamentals without the presence of a teacher. Seen as a need because there are said to be 57 million children suffering a lack of educational exposure… and that the world cannot generate enough teachers to keep up with the demand. The competition was launched globally since 6am… E Jay Saunders, who hails from South Caicos appears to be the only Caribbean national in the group of Vanguards, so far.

Huawei highlights new Nvidia MX250 graphics in its MWC laptops

first_img Jun 1 • The Nubia Alpha looks like either a house arrest bracelet or Batman’s phone Huawei Huawei’s new MateBooks give you the power to touch and… Jun 29 • Galaxy S10 5G, OnePlus 7 Pro LG V50 ThinQ 5G: Why you shouldn’t rush to buy a 5G phone Jul 9 • Killer cameras and battery life might meet their match in the Note 10 • Share your voice Tags It will also, most interestingly, be one of the first laptops with the new Nvidia MX250 graphics chip. That’s an entry-level graphics chip found in some mainstream or premium laptops that need a little extra muscle for Photoshop, video editing or other graphics-heavy tasks. That GPU is driving a screen with a 3:2 aspect ratio screen and a 3,000×2,000-pixel resolution, which we’ve seen in Microsoft’s Surface line and a handful of other PCs recently. The MX line isn’t great for gaming, but you can definitely sneak a little game time on there, as long as you keep expectations modest. For example, we tested the new game Apex Legends on the previous MateBook X Pro, which had the Nvidia MX150 GPU, and it ran at around 20fps.Other specs for the new MateBook X include:Intel Core i5-8265U or Core i7-8586U CPU8GB or 16GB DDR3 2133MHz RAM256GB or 512GB NVMe SSDBluetooth 5.0 Two USB-C or Thunderbolt ports, one USB-A portQuad Dolby Atmos-compatible speakers Built-in fingerprint reader (in the power button)Space Gray or Mystic Silver color optionsSome of the software sounds interesting, like a suite of laptop-to-phone apps. Huawei Share allows you to send files easily from your phone to the laptop through a direct Wi-Fi connection. There’s also a clipboard-sharing feature and you can use your phone to trigger a laptop screen-recording session. But these features only work if you also have a Huawei phone.At least you can still use a three-finger downward gesture on the screen to take a quick screenshot, which is better than the built-in Windows alternative. matebook-x-pro-2019-15Sneaky webcam…  Angela Lang/CNET One thing to note if you’re picky about webcam placement: There’s a pop-up camera hidden in the function-key row. Its photos may be a little up-the-nose for your tastes. Joining the MateBook Pro X are new versions of the MateBook 13 and MateBook 14 laptops, pitched as affordable alternatives to the premium-priced X Pro. Both laptops have 2,160×1,440-pixel screens and a 3:2 aspect ratio. They also have dual (not quad) Atmos speakers and the same new CPU options. matebook-14-3The more affordable MateBook 14.  Angela Lang/CNET The 14-inch version will also offer the Nvidia MX150. Both laptops will come in Space Gray, Mystic Silver or Pink (not rose!) Gold. Specific price and availability details have not yet been released.  2:11 May 13 • Galaxy S10E vs. iPhone XR: Every spec comparedcenter_img See All Angela Lang/CNET Between high-end phones and international intrigue, you might have forgotten that Huawei makes laptops, too. It even makes from pretty good ones, such as the Mac-alike MateBook X Pro. One of my colleagues called the 2018 edition of that 13.9-inch laptop “the best little laptop you’ve never heard of.” The MateBook X Pro is back. It’s got the same name and frankly it looks almost exactly the same — the only visual difference is a tweaked logo. But it does have some interesting component and software updates.  reading • Huawei highlights new Nvidia MX250 graphics in its MWC laptops 0 Post a comment Mobile World Congress 2019 Mobile World Congress 2019 Laptops Now playing: Watch this:last_img read more

Lemon juice nutritious diet can erase stretch marks

first_imgMandeep Singh, consultant cosmetic and plastic surgery, Paras Hospitals, Gurgaon, suggests useful tips:Drink water: Drink eight to 10 glasses of water a day and you will notice a visible change in the sharpness of the stretch mark, which means their prominence on your skin will reduce.Nutritious diet: Choose a balanced and nutritious diet that is rich in Vitamins C and E, zinc, silica and other nutrients to nourish your skin. Vitamin C, in particular, is essential for renewing connective tissue. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Include a variety of foods such as strawberries, blueberries, spinach, carrots, green beans, collard greens, nuts and seeds in your diet.Lemon juice: Lemon juice is a natural acid that will bleach your stretch marks. Rub lemon juice on your stretch marks in circular motion. Let it stay on there for 10 minutes before you rinse it off.Creams and moisturisers: Use creams and moisturizers that help to create skin elasticity. Lotions and creams work best for new stretch marks, but they can help with old ones. They are just not as effective though. A cream with retinoic acid cream works best for new stretch marks. You can apply the cream on your skin as you lose weight.last_img read more

The system sports one low monthly storage cost per gigabyte. It consists of three core capabilities, is fully HIPAA-compliant and shifts data storage from capital-intensive systems managed locally to an affordable, pay-as-you-grow service.ArchiveVendor neutral archive for medical imagesDisaster recoveryIn 2010, Data Center Knowledge reported that 63 percent of readers were in the midst of data center and storage expansion. Furthermore, 50 percent of healthcare IT departments have open positions. In addition, 50 percent of CIOs state their staff members are stressed (according to Kirby Partners, a healthcare IT recruiting firm).GNAX’s system solves healthcare’s storage, budget and staffing issues by off-loading on-site hardware and system management costs. The company can migrate data from proprietary systems, including those that are nearing end-of-service life, relieving hospitals of high professional services costs.According to customers, the ability to offload on-site storage systems to GNAX DOES is particularly valuable. It lowers costs and keeps internal staff focused on meeting IT-driven requirements for meaningful use and other core organizational goals.The system eliminates the need for back-up tapes; this gives hospitals flexibility to add new systems and store more data for compliance, including images produced by picture archiving and communications systems (PACS). Changes in files and data are managed real-time with simple file transfer protocols and real-time monitoring capabilities.Finally, the system includes diverse geographic redundancy by replicating data automatically between its Atlanta and Dallas data centers. This provides complete security and high availability for disaster recovery, application back-ups and hot site needs.GNAX will showcase the GNAX DOES Archive solution at RSNA 2011.
