A man cut his own neck Thursday afternoon during a confrontation with Washington State Patrol troopers at a Vancouver car dealership. He was not seriously hurt, an official said.Before the confrontation, around 12:35 p.m., a man was reportedly walking along Interstate 205 north near Highway 500, said Trooper Will Finn, spokesman for the Washington State Patrol. The man, identified as Marvin Nelson, 35, of Yakima, was spotted heading northeast in the bushes toward Vancouver Toyota, 10455 N.E. 53rd St.When the trooper confronted the man in the used car section of the dealership, he said he was out for a walk, Finn said. The trooper explained that pedestrians can’t be out on the highway and started to check Nelson’s name and date of birth for any criminal history.Nelson told the trooper he had a pocket knife, and the trooper said that was fine. After a second trooper showed up, Nelson put the knife to his own throat and waved it around his neck, Finn said. The troopers told him to drop the knife, but he ignored their commands. Nelson started to bleed a little bit from his neck, Finn said.They instructed Nelson to drop the knife three times, but he continued to cut himself. The troopers subdued him with a Taser to prevent him from hurting himself further.

[Representational image] Make in India: Apple to commence assembling of iPhones in Bengaluru from second quarter of 2017 In Picture: Apple logoREUTERS/Mike SegarAmerican technology major Apple has reportedly selected Bengaluru to manufacture iPhones for the Indian market.Apple’s OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) partner Wistron has commenced building an assembling plant at Peenya, a well developed industrial hub located in the west of Bengaluru. If things go as planned, the company will start manufacturing limited units of iPhones in April 2017, and start full-fledged production by the end of next year, reported The Times of India.Also read: Apple iPhone 8 to have a dual SIM? Patent filing indicates this just might be true Giving credence to the reports, Apple India, in its job portal has listed two production related job offers in Bengaluru– one, iPhone Operations Program Manager (OPM) and a New Product Introduction (NPI) Product Quality Manager. Make in India: Apple to commence assembling of iPhones in Bengaluru from second quarter of 2017Apple India (official) Job portalIn August, Apple’s primary supply partner Foxconn entered into pact with the Maharashtra government to setup a phone manufacturing unit and was believed to be used for making iPhones alone. Now, it has come to light that Foxconn is using the same facility to assemble Xiaomi and OnePlus devices, but there is no sign of iPhone manufacturing yet. Make in India: Apple to commence assembling of iPhones in Bengaluru from second quarter of 2017Apple India (official) Job portal-screen shotSince the visit of Apple CEO Tim Cook to India in May, the company has shown serious business interest in the Indian market.During his weeklong visit, Cook inaugurated Map Development Center in Hyderabad and new iOS App Design and Development Accelerator in Bengaluru.Read more: Apple to set up iOS app design and development accelerator in BengaluruApple officials also had a series of meetings with the central government over setting up of a manufacturing unit and a flagship store.In the recent round of meetings, Apple has urged the Indian government to provide incentives to manufacture iPhones and also exemption from the requirement to print product information on the devices, as it would alter the device’s minimalistic design.Currently, Apple holds a meagre 2 percent share in the Indian smartphone market and one of the prime reasons for this figure is the iPhone’s expensive price due to a high import tax. Currently, around 12.5 percent of import tax is levied on each iPhone sold in India. But the growth in iPhone sales in the recent months has been quite healthy, as rival Samsung’s Galaxy Note7 was banned in India after instances of the phone exploding in different parts of the world were reported. If iPhone is manufactured locally, Apple will get tax breaks and pass on the benefits to the people by reducing the cost of the devices. Time seems ripe for Apple to start making phones in India, touted as the world’s fastest growing smartphone market. It is poised to overtake US as second biggest mobile business market next year.Watch this space for more news on Apple products.

In the report, Implications of the US Supreme Court ruling on healthcare, HRI explores answers to the question: “What’s next?” for states, employers, insurance companies, physicians, hospitals and other providers and pharmaceutical and life sciences companies. According to HRI: • The Court’s decision clears the path for a new era of healthcare megapayers — the federal government, large employers and state insurance exchanges empowered to direct business based on health outcomes. • Implementation deadlines that once seemed far off now are rapidly approaching. There is renewed pressure on health organizations not only to comply with rules and compliance deadlines but also to find more innovative ways of delivering high-quality, affordable care that proves their worth. • Creation of new state and private insurance exchanges, greater pricing transparency, mobile technology, and nontraditional competitors are turning the health business into a retail operation. • Incentives for collaboration are quickening the convergence of hospitals, insurers, drugmakers, physicians, and technology companies. • Economic uncertainty and federal budget reductions add muscle to efforts to improve efficiency, eliminate waste, and constrain overall cost growth. Leading health sector participants have been devising new ways to conduct business and move ahead of the competition in the face of impending deadlines under the Affordable Care Act. Among the provisions that are scheduled to take effect soon are new reporting and disclosure obligations for employers, benefit design changes for certain health plans, penalties for hospitals that have unnecessarily high readmissions, and a requirement that insurers devote 80 to 85 percent of their premiums to medical care or refund the difference. In addition, participants will need to accelerate efforts to be competitive for federal funding that will be available for innovation, health insurance exchanges, new quality measures and other provisions of the law. To date, more than $1 billion in grants has been allocated to support state exchange readiness, and Medicaid spending is expected to total $4.2 trillion from 2012 to 2021. With 23 million individuals anticipated to buy insurance from the exchanges and 17 million people enrolling in Medicaid by 2021, the two provisions are heightening activity in states. HRI analysis shows that so far, 29 percent of states (14 states plus D.C.) have made significant progress toward reform, while 37 percent (19 states) have made moderate progress. The remaining 33 percent (17 states) have done less to implement the law. To meet expectations and deadlines, some states may need to collaborate with other states that are farther along to leverage infrastructure and information.For more information: www.pwc.com/us/healthindustries FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | Radiology Business | August 02, 2019 VIDEO: Key Topics for Radiology Administrators at AHRA 2019 Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) President … read more Feature | August 05, 2019 | Dave Fornell, Editor Most Popular Radiology and Radiotherapy Topics in July 2019 August 5, 2019 — Here is the list of the most popular content on the Imaging Technology New (ITN) magazine website fr read more The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s.

June 18 , 2019 This article is sponsored content from the World Avocado Congress, which takes place in Colombia in 2019Colombia is one of the most attractive supplies of Hass avocado in the world due to its almost year-round availability. In a conference called Avocado Territory II, Pedro Pablo Díaz, director of the Board of Directors of Corpohass and manager of Exotics Garden, spoke about the challenges of the Colombian avocado sector.Opening of marketsThe country currently has 14 markets open for the export of avocados, including the U.S., Canada, Hong Kong, Germany and Afganistan.Around 95% of Colombian avocados are exported to Europe, and so it is important to expand volumes into other markets to which we have access and therefore avoid the potential problems of a collapse of the European market.According to an interview published in the Portafolio newspaper of Giovanni Gómez, director of economic affairs at Analdex, there is a potential for growth in various markets, such as the United States, which consumers around 900,000 metric tons of Hass avocados annually.Currently, Colombian is negotiating market access for countries like Japan, where avocado consumption is becoming more commonplace. By contrast, China is a market that is just now learning about avocados.According to Colombian Agriculture and Development Minister, Andrés Valencia, Japan is a country with more than 120 million consumers of avocado. For avocado growers, is it important to get a fair price in markets for their fruit, and it is important to understand the various factors that affect the sales price of avocados in foreign markets.Return pricesThe volatility of avocado prices is one of the main challenges, given that the market is not stable and the prices vary in relation to supply and demand.An example of this happened in June 2018 when the supply of avocados was greater than the demand in international markets. The U.S. was heavily supplied by fruit from California and Mexico. South Africa and Peru sent more containers to Europe than normal. They supplied this market with around 600-700 containers per week, with the population typically consuming around 450 containers per week. This oversupply in the market cause avocados to be sold at 4 euros per box.This case leads us to reflect on the importance of not oversaturating markets with one single product and of exporting to new markets to not bring down the sales price in export markets.For avocados to be sold at a good price, it is important to ensure that good quality fruit is produced that meets every one of the parameters required by the international market.Quality in the destination“Thie is Colombia’s main challenge”One of the main challenges in the avocado industry is the quality of export fruit, as occasionally the level of dry matter of fruit on a single tree can vary greatly, which has implications for the quality.Growers must focus their efforts on protecting the flowers and carrying out more intensive nutrition of the fruit to improve the quality, thereby complying with the parameters required by the final market for the fruit.To learn more about the main challenges of the Colombian avocado sector, the export requirements and phytosanitary issues, come to the IX World Avocado Congress and learn first-hand from industry leaders.
