It kind of came out of nowhere Shaun Majumder on being fired

first_imgAdvertisement Comedian Shaun Majumder says he was abruptly fired from the cast of This Hour Has 22 Minutes after sending a letter to producers offering creative input on the Halifax-based parody show.Majumder was part of the cast of 22 Minutes, which airs on CBC-TV, from 2003 to 2010 and then returned in 2011 after a stint on ABC’s Detroit 1-8-7.“I’ll be honest, it kind of came out of nowhere. I didn’t feel like that was the conversation I was going to have when I had that conversation with the producers,” Majumder told CBC News Monday from his hometown of Burlington, N.L. Advertisement Majumder said he’s known of the decision since June, but didn’t want to speak publicly until he had a clearer picture of the circumstances. He broke the news Saturday night while on stage during the closing festivities of The Gathering, an annual festival Majumder hosts in his hometown.‘The straw that broke the camel’s back’It wasn’t CBC’s decision to remove Majumder from the cast, according to the comic. He said it was a show producer who was responsible for his firing after Majumder voiced his concerns in a letter.Majumder said despite having the funniest cast of characters in the country and the greatest writers, he felt as though that creative team of 22 Minutes wasn’t getting enough of a say in the final decision-making. Shaun Majumder, who has been a cast member on This Hour Has 22 Minutes for more than a decade, has been fired and will not be returning to the show. (CBC) Majumder blamed creative differences for his firing, and said he had nothing but good things to say about the cast and crew of 22 Minutes.center_img Facebook Login/Register With: LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Twitterlast_img read more

2014 NFL Preview The TopHeavy NFC West

Editor’s Note: FiveThirtyEight is running a series of eight NFL previews, one division at a time, to highlight the numbers that may influence each team’s season. America’s favorite weekly soap opera is about to begin; get prepped.Seattle SeahawksExpected wins (Using implied power ratings from Las Vegas point spreads): 10.0Playoff probability: 64 percent (43 percent to win the NFC West)Super Bowl win probability: 10 percent The Cardinals won 10 games last year, only the second time the team reached double digits in victories since moving to Arizona in 1988. Their run defense was the key. The Cardinals allowed just 1,351 rushing yards, the fewest in the NFL. They ranked first in rushing defense DVOA, Football Outsiders’ main defensive statistic, and stuffed opposing ball-carriers for no gain or a loss on 28 percent of runs, the most in the NFL.But three of the key players responsible for that success are gone, including inside linebacker Karlos Dansby. Dansby was one of just two players in 2013 to record 100 tackles, more than four sacks, and more than four interceptions. He is a very good run defender, but he is also a strong pass-rusher and is excellent in pass coverage. Of course, that’s why the Cleveland Browns signed him to a four-year, $24 million deal on the first day of free agency.The Cardinals were prepared for Dansby’s departure, but the other two exits left the team with little time to find a solution. In June, starting inside linebacker Daryl Washington was suspended for the season for (again) violating the league’s substance abuse policy. Like Dansby, Washington is a versatile player: He’s a great pass-rusher (his nine sacks in 2012 were the most by an inside linebacker since Bart Scott’s 9.5 in 2006) and above-average in coverage, in addition to being a strong run-defender.And last Monday, defensive end Darnell Dockett was lost for the season after tearing the ACL in his right knee. Dockett is not just an above-average 3-4 defensive end against the run, but a team leader and — along with superstar wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald — the player on the team with the longest tenure.Replacing Dansby and Washington are a pair of players on opposite ends of their career arcs. Kevin Minter was the Cardinals’ second-round pick a year ago, but played just one defensive snap as a rookie. Ex-Steeler Larry Foote, 34, has started just 22 games over the past four seasons. The Cardinals, so used to relying on their run defense, now don’t know quite what to expect from it.St. Louis RamsExpected wins: 6.8Playoff probability: 18 percent (8 percent to win the NFC West)Super Bowl win probability: 1 percent Over the last three seasons, Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch was the only player to record at least 900 carries in the regular season, and was one of just two players to rush for more than 4,000 yards since 2011.While those stats are gaudy, to some they’re also a potential sign of overuse. There’s a line of thinking among NFL-watchers that running backs only have so many yards in them before they exhaust their skill.But Seahawks fans (and management) shouldn’t be concerned about Lynch’s heavy workload. Proving the connection between “high number of carries” and “sharp decline in ability” has never been easy, in large part because the running backs who earn the most carries tend to be among the most talented. Moreover, Lynch’s workload isn’t that high. While his 901 carries over the last three years is the most in the NFL, it’s also the fewest number of carries the leader in this statistic has had in any three-year period since 1989-1991, when Barry Sanders recorded 877 carries. Seattle fans may have flashbacks to running back Shaun Alexander, whose career crashed shortly after leading the team to the Super Bowl in 2005, but Alexander recorded 1,049 carries from 2003 to 2005.From 1970 to 2013, there were 43 players who had between 850 and 950 carries in a three-year period, and who were 26 to 28 years old in the final year of that span. On average, those players (excluding Lynch) rushed 300 times per season and averaged 4.3 yards per carry during those three years. And, on average, those players played in 12.6 games the following season, rushed 224 times and averaged 4.2 yards per carry.To test whether that drop-off is due to a heavy workload, we need to measure against a control group. To do that, I looked at all running backs since 1970 who recorded between 600 and 800 carries1By looking at players with at least 600 carries, we’re excluding part-time players of lower quality; by capping the number of carries at 800, we’re keeping the heavy-workload players out of this sample. over a three-year period, averaged between 4.1 and 4.5 yards per carry,2Since that provides a nice band around the average 4.3 yards per carry produced by the players comparable to Lynch during their three-year runs. and were 26, 27 or 28 years old at the end of the three years. There were 44 such players,3Excluding the four players who missed all of the following season. and on average they rushed 237 times per season over those three years and averaged 4.3 yards per carry. The following season, that group averaged 206 carries and 4.1 yards per carry. In other words, the control group rushed for fewer yards and averaged fewer yards per carry than the “high-workload” backs.The real worry about Lynch should be his age. Older running backs are much more likely to decline than younger running backs, and nearly every running back in his late 20s is on the wrong side of the age curve.San Francisco 49ersExpected wins: 9.7Playoff probability: 59 percent (37 percent to win the NFC West)Super Bowl win probability: 8 percent The 49ers were the second-oldest team in the league last year, after weighting each player by how important he was to the team (as I did, using’s Approximate Value system). The average AV-adjusted age of last season’s 49ers as of Sept. 1, 2013, was 28.2 years. That may make San Francisco more vulnerable to a regression to the mean in 2014.I calculated the AV-adjusted ages for the 138 teams from 1990 to 2012 that won 11 to 13 games in a season. (The 49ers won 12 last year.) I then measured how many wins those teams had the following year. Age appears to be a factor, but only at the extremes.I grouped the teams into four buckets based solely on age. For example, the oldest quarter of teams in this study had an average age of 28.9 in the first year and won 12.0 games; the following year, those teams dropped to an average of 8.6 wins.The youngest quarter of teams regressed the least, which isn’t surprising. But the evidence here suggests that being just a bit older than average isn’t any worse for a team than being average or slightly younger than average. The teams in the middle quartiles — like the 49ers — are not nearly as sensitive to age effects as the teams on the extremes.This is good news for 49ers fans, but the performance of the defense’s top players remains uncertain. Inside linebacker NaVorro Bowman was a first-team All-Pro choice last year, but tore his ACL and MCL in January and will miss much of the 2014 season. Outside linebacker Aldon Smith is the team’s main pass-rusher — he has 42 sacks over the last three years, 20 more than the next-best 49er — but he will likely be suspended for at least part of the season.Defensive end Justin Smith, who has compiled the second-most AV on the team over the last three years, turns 35 in September. Even linebacker Patrick Willis, perhaps the team’s best player, will be 30 by the time Super Bowl XLIX comes around. The window isn’t closed on the 49ers, but the defense’s best days are already behind it.Arizona CardinalsExpected wins: 7.5Playoff probability: 26 percent (12 percent to win the NFC West)Super Bowl win probability: 2 percent The Rams emerged as a trendy breakout pick this offseason because their young players were supposed to have finally matured. Last year, the Rams had the third-youngest offense and the youngest defense in the NFL, according to AV-adjusted team age.Rarely has a team fielded so many highly drafted players along both lines. All four of the team’s projected starting defensive linemen were selected in the first 14 picks of the NFL draft, which would be a league first; the offensive line features Jake Long (the first overall pick in 2008), Greg Robinson (the second overall selection this year) and Rodger Saffold (selected 33rd overall in 2010).The starting wide receivers (Tavon Austin, Brian Quick and Kenny Britt) were all selected in the first 33 picks of the draft, and tight end Jared Cook is one of the highest-paid players at his position. Running back Zac Stacy began last year on the bench, but the rookie rushed for 969 yards in the final 12 games of the year, the seventh-most in the NFL over that stretch. St. Louis also drafted Tre Mason in May, the Southeastern Conference leader in yards from scrimmage and touchdowns in 2013.And then last weekend quarterback Sam Bradford tore his ACL. Since 2007, St. Louis ranks last in both passing touchdowns and net yards per pass attempt. The team has been only marginally better since Bradford arrived, ranking third from the bottom in both categories since 2010. Now, without Bradford, its offense could sputter just as it was supposed to be ascending.Over the course of his career, Bradford’s backup, Shaun Hill, has been the definition of an average passer, which is enough to make him one of the better backup quarterbacks of all time. Hill’s career efficiency numbers are more impressive than Bradford’s, but it’s hard to get excited about a 34-year-old quarterback who has thrown just 16 passes over the last three seasons and who is set to take snaps in the league’s toughest division. But Hill is a good fit for the Rams offense because, like Bradford, he is more likely to stretch the field horizontally than vertically. Among quarterbacks to enter the league since 2005, Hill and Bradford have the fourth- and third-lowest yards per completion averages among quarterbacks with at least 900 pass attempts.4Hill has averaged 10.8 yards per completion for his career, while Bradford has averaged 10.7. Only Trent Edwards (10.7) and Christian Ponder (10.6) have lower average gains. The Rams won’t need to modify their offensive plans with Hill in the huddle, but that says all you need to know about Bradford’s career.Read more of FiveThirtyEight’s NFL season previews. read more

Nokia Lumia 800 un pavé coloré dans la mare de la mobilité

first_imgNokia Lumia 800 : un pavé coloré dans la mare de la mobilitéInvité par Nokia à l’espace ephémère de la firme, situé dans le 1er arrondissement de Paris, nous avons pu prendre en main le Lumia 800, et explorer les nouveautés qu’il propose au système d’exploitation Microsoft. Revue de détails.C’est un retour en fanfare que nous propose le constructeur finlandais, tout en couleurs. De la gamme Asha au Lumia 800, les produits affichent leurs différences par rapport à la concurrence. Mais ces distinctions se font d’abord dans les concepts des produits, comme nous l’explique Xavier des Horts, directeur de la communication et des affaires publiques chez Nokia. “L’idée de départ de ce mobile a été de prendre un bloc de plastique, dans du polycarbonate, de ne garder que l’enveloppe, et de mettre à l’intérieur les composants. De ce fait, ça lui donne une hyper solidité et un espèce de système “anti enlèvement ” de peinture puisque le matériau en lui-même est fait dans ce coloris.”En main, le smartphone est léger et les 2 grammes d’embonpoint que le Lumia prend sur l’Iphone 4S (142 grammes) ne se sentent absolument pas : la répartition du poids dans le monobloc doit y être pour quelque chose ! L’élément se superposant sur la coque, c’est l’écran. Là encore, Nokia fait dans l’originalité car au delà de ses qualités techniques propres (3,7 pouces – 9,25 cm, Amoled capacitif affichant une résolution de 800 par 480 pixels), sa forme est un véritable pied-de-nez au Galaxy Nexus : il est convexe, c’est à dire la forme contraire de celle que Samsung a mis en avant pour le confort de son smartphone star ! Pari gagné ? Oui, incontestablement. Le résultat est aussi beau esthétiquement que confortable visuellement. Mais Nokia ne s’est pas arrêtée en si bon chemin, et si le Lumia 800 dispose d’une belle calandre, il en a aussi sous le capot.Quand la musique est bonne !S’il dispose d’atouts certains (capteur Carl Zeiss 8 Mpixels, prise de vidéo en 720p, accéléromètre, GPS, autonomie de 13 heures en communication…), le Lumia 800 ne grillera pas la priorité à la concurrence haut de gamme, avec son processeur 1,4 Ghz, sa mémoire vive de 512 Mo ou sa capacité de 16 GB. Mais outre le fait qu’il affiche une fluidité exemplaire, ce Windows Phone Mango est le nouveau fer de lance de sa société. Et Nokia a toujours eu des bases solides au niveau du software. C’est donc lui le premier bénéficiaire des nouvelles solutions proposées par le constructeur, et, là encore, il étonne.”On a pris Windows Phone 7.5 tel qu’il existe aujourd’hui, et on lui a ajouté des applications supplémentaires.” Le premier de ces ajouts est un mariage : Nokia a marié Zune avec le Nokia Music store, donnant à l’utilisateur l’opportunité de pouvoir télécharger de la musique dans une base de 13 à 14 millions de titres. Le second, c’est MixRadio. “Là, il s’agit de musique en streaming. On a des éditeurs de musique qui vont construire des playlists en fonction de vos goûts. Par la suite, si vous souhaiter conserver la playlist, vous pourrez la télécharger en résident pour entendre la selection chez vous.”, nous explique Xavier des Horts. Une application pratique et conviviale, qui fonctionne uniquement en wifi. Dernière nouveauté joignant les domaines de la musique et de la navigation, il s’agit d’une application liée à la localisation des concerts musicaux. “Vous arrivez dans une ville, vous vous demandez que fait-on ce soir ? Eh bien votre portable vous propose une selection de concerts, avec lieu, date…Et numéro et achat de la place ! Nous avons signé des partenariats avec les organisateurs pour que tout soit accessible depuis votre smartphone”. Bluffant. Surtout lorsque l’on sait que ce service est valable sur l’ensemble du territoire national. “On a pas encore signé avec Allociné pour le cinéma, on espère que cela se fera rapidement.” On comprend mieux, dès lors, ce “relatif” silence de la part de Nokia ces derniers mois. La firme préparait son grand retour, et a étendu un vaste réseau de partenariat pour l’ensemble de ses services. Partenariat, ou achat. Car Nokia a aussi conquis, ces derniers temps, dans les secteurs technologiques. Et la récente acquisition de Navteq lui a permis de renforcer sa position sur le secteur de la navigation GPS…Et d’en obtenir des fruits directement intégrés dans le Lumia 800.De nouvelles solutions de navigationDévoilées dans leurs grandes lignes en octobre dernier, les applications Nokia Drive et Nokia Maps se précisent.Le Nokia Drive est un système GPS complet prenant en charge la navigation en voiture ou à pieds. Il permet de télécharger gratuitement les cartes de 190 pays, en 3D, de les utiliser et de les supprimer autant de fois que l’utilisateur le désire. Mais ce n’est pas tout ! “On offre également la navigation dans 100 pays, et en 49 langues”, ajoute Xavier des Horts. “On a pas l’info trafic ou les alertes radars, mais on y travaille. On les a dans nos terminaux version Symbian, là, ce sont juste des problèmes de paramétrage.”Nokia Maps est un ensemble de services de navigation (hotels, restaurants, magasins), avec les tarifs, les informations relatives aux lieux, …”mais aussi les avis de consommateurs, ou de critiques, ce qui s’avère assez utile pour un restaurant par exemple, ou encore des visuels du lieu”, nous explique le directeur de chez Nokia. Le constructeur a réalisé des partenariats avec des grands noms comme CityVox ou Michelin, ce qui garantit une pérennité certaine dans le temps à l’ensemble des services.Nokia et Microsoft : le partenariat dans l’avenirProfitant de l’évènement, nous avons voulu en savoir un peu plus sur l’état des lieux et le futur du partenariat Microsoft-Nokia, mais aussi sur le sort réservé à Symbian, en proie au doute ces derniers temps. Sur les premiers points, Xavier des Horts nous explique :”c’est un partenariat fort et nous sommes fiers de ses fruits. Bien sûr, il y a des choses qui manquent aujourd’hui aux Windows Phones, comme un port pour cartes micro-SD ou la technologie NFC. Mais nous allons continuer de travailler avec Microsoft, dans les mois à venir, pour imaginer le Windows Phone de demain.”À lire aussiNomophobie : traitement, symptômes, qu’est-ce que c’est ?Sur Symbian, le système d’exploitation de Nokia, la réponse du manager est également sans détour : “Nous ne lâchons pas Symbian, et allons continuer de l’améliorer et d’y intégrer des technologies actuelles. Le NFC par exemple, est présent dans 6 terminaux de la firme. On va continuer de sortir des mobiles sous Symbian et garantir aux consommateurs qu’au moins jusqu’en 2016, nous continuerons de supporter la plate forme. On a fait Anna, on a fait Belle, et il nous reste pas mal de lettres il me semble (sourire)”. “Carla ?”, là, le manager ne nous répondra pas, même si un large sourire éclaire son visage.Au final, ce Lumia 800 ne déçoit pas, il étonne même. Ses composants techniques et logiciels en font un smartphone homogène, beau et utile. La couche de programmes supplémentaires de Nokia vient étoffer intelligemment les services déjà existants (comme le App Highlights, véritable tête de gondole du Market Place). Moins technologique qu’un Galaxy Nexus ou un IPhone 4S, il offre une alternative esthétique et intélligente, tout en étant moins cher que la concurrence.Le Lumia 800 est disponible dès maintenant en trois coloris (Cyan, magenta ou noir), et en offre liée avec un forfait à 99 ou 49 euros. Le téléphone seul, lui, coûte 499 euros.Le 22 novembre 2011 à 12:00 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

MCU News A Power Pack Movie a Punisher Teaser Cable and More

first_img Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is coming to an end in just a little over two years. It’s more than that, though. It will be the conclusion of everything Marvel has been building since 2008’s Iron Man. Since that movie, Marvel has been adding heroes to its roster. Everything has revolved around The Avengers as we know them: Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow and Hawkeye. With contracts expiring and at least a few of those actors expected not to return, the MCU is going to look really different after 2019.One superhero team that could be next for Marvel is the Power Pack. That Hashtag Show reports that Marvel is once again considering developing Power Pack into a movie. The Power Pack was one of the properties Marvel put down as collateral in their deal with Merrill Lynch back in 2008, allowing them to build Marvel Studios. Most of the others have since been made into movies or TV shows (Captain America, The Avengers, and Cloak and Dagger are a few examples), and now Marvel is revisiting Power Pack for Phase Four.The Power Pack is a team of preteen siblings with superpowers. When they appeared in their own series back in the 1980s, they were the first kid superheroes to fight crime without an adult present. That means they kept their powers a secret from their parents and friends. It’s not hard to see how that could make for a great movie. The plan is to make the Power Pack movie into something resembling the Spy Kids series. That could work really well. A huge chunk of Marvel’s audience is already made up of kids. Having a movie starring them sounds like it would print money. Plus, those Spy Kids movies were fun, and hold up surprisingly well if you go back to them.\Composite: Brie Larson (Photo by dorotht, via Wikimedia Commons), Sebastian Stan (Photo by jc, via Wikimedia Commons)Before we get to Phase Four, there’s still plenty of Phase Three left that remains shrouded in mystery. At this point, there’s no Marvel movie we know less about than Avengers 4. Still untitled, Marvel is keeping all details under wraps until Avengers: Infinity War tweet from @AtlantaFilmingis out. Still, we do occasionally get little bits of information as actors show up to film. Brie Larson, who will play Captain Marvel, was spotted at Atlanta’s Pinewood Studios, where Marvel does a lot of filming. Rumors say she was there with Chris Evans, which probably means they’re doing something Avengers 4-related. Directors Anthony and Joe Russo have stated that Captain Marvel won’t be in Infinity War, but will make an appearance in the follow-up. That makes sense, considering her origin movie won’t be out until March 2019, two months before Avengers 4.Though we all knew Chris Evans’ Captain America would be in Avengers 4, we had no idea what he would be doing. Thanks to another actor confirming a return, we may have an idea. Sebastian Stan told CinemaBlend that he will be in the movie, though he hasn’t gotten a script yet. All he knows is he’s shooting his scenes in October.“All I knew was what I was involved in, and I was kept on a very ‘need to know’ basis. Maybe that’s the norm. But it’s a family system. There’s a trust, and there’s a sense of knowledge between the writers and the directors, with Kevin [Feige]… that shows up,” he says.Stan’s appearance tells us a little bit about the plot for Avengers 4. We still haven’t entirely wrapped up the Captain America-Bucky storyline. At the end of Civil War, he returned to cryogenic sleep until someone could cure his brainwashing. Since Infinity War will likely spend most of its time on the battle with Thanos, it’s looking like Avengers 4 will spend some time wrapping up Steve Rogers’ story. We’re just happy we’ll get to see The Winter Soldier again before too long.On the TV side of the MCU, we’re rapidly running out of 2017, and there’s still no release date for Netflix’s The Punisher. Instead, we got a cool, incredibly brutal teaser. The show’s official account tweeted out this video of Frank Castle hunting down and killing some kind of military group. When he stabs the last one, he speaks directly into the soldier’s body cam, “I’m coming for you.” We don’t know who he’s talking to, but we definitely don’t want to be that person. It’s not wise to threaten a man that you can’t see coming.— The Punisher (@ThePunisher) September 18, 2017With all this emphasis on how we can’t see The Punisher coming, I’m starting to think we really won’t see this show coming. Keep in mind, this is all personal speculation based on a couple of tweets. But the fact that we still don’t have a date beyond “2017” makes me think they aren’t going to announce it ahead of time. One day, you’ll log onto Netflix and the show will be out. Just like he will on the show, The Punisher will be waiting on your Netflix homepage when you least expect it. Thankfully, he’ll only take a weekend from you, rather than your life. At this point, that’s where my money is. It’ll be even better if they don’t even drop the series on a Friday. That’d really make it a surprise.Finally, in the non-MCU Marvel universe, we got another close-up look at Deadpool 2‘s Cable. He looks even angrier than the last time we saw him. The photo comes from Josh Brolin’s Instagram, it looks like Cable is already sick of Deadpool’s antics. And I’m going to need you to sit down and wait your turn.— The Punisher (@ThePunisher) September 18, 2017 Stay on target Tom Holland Responds to Disney-Sony Spider-Man Feud‘Game of Thrones’ Star Kit Harington Joins Marvel’s &#… Surprise. #ThePunisher— The Punisher (@ThePunisher) September 18, 2017God, this looks cool. The producers of the show have said we should expect the most brutal and violent Marvel-Netflix show yet. At first, I dismissed that as marketing hype. Remember, Daredevil season one had a guy impale his own head on a fence post. Then, another guy got decapitated by a car door. Can The Punisher really outdo all that? Then, I saw this teaser. If this is the kind of thing they’re putting out to market the show, the real thing could be insane.Of course, we still don’t have a release date and this teaser doesn’t even come close to revealing one. At this point, I’m convinced they’re never going to tell us. This teaser is all about surprise. It’s just Frank Castle sneaking up on dudes and stabbing them. Then, when fans responded asking for a release date, this is what happened. Cable is typically the exact opposite of Deadpool in almost every way. He is deadly serious. He’s a meticulous planner. Deadpool is not either of those things. Whatever is making Cable crazy enough to scream into (and probably break) a mirror like that is still a mystery. I bet the merc with a mouth has something to do with it. We’ll all find out when Deadpool 2 releases in 2018.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

8000year old underwater burial site reveals human skulls mounted on poles

first_imgThe researchers are unable to offer an explanation for what they have found at the site, though they suggest it was possible the victims had died or been killed elsewhere and then transported to the burial site. Possibly because they were considered exceptional in some way. Explore further People living during the Mesolithic were hunter-gatherers, the researchers note, which is why the burial site and its contents are so surprising. At the time of its use, the burial site would have been at a shallow lake bottom covered with tightly packed stones upon which the remains of humans had been laid. The remains were all skulls, save for one infant. The adult skulls (except one) were missing jawbones, and at least two of the skulls showed evidence of a stick thrust through the opening at the base through the top of the skull—normally associated with posting a skull to scare enemies. But hunter-gatherers were not known for posting skulls or engaging in gruesome funeral rituals. Instead, they were known for disposing of their dead in simple, respectful ways.The gravesite was found in what is now southern Sweden, near an archaeological site known as Kanaljorden. Archeologists have been working at the site since 2009, but it was not until 2011 that the human remains were found—until that time, researchers had been finding animal remains. To date, the researchers have found the remains of 11 adults. In another surprise, the team discovered that all of the adult skulls bore signs of trauma—each had been whacked in the head multiple times. But the trauma was inflicted differently depending on gender. The males were hit on top or near the front of the head, while the females were typically hit from behind. None of the wounds appeared life-threatening, however, though without the rest of the corpse, it was impossible to identify what had killed them. Cranium F318 with wooden stake.

DOI: 10.15184/aqy.2017.210AbstractThe socio-cultural behaviour of Scandinavian Mesolithic hunter-gatherers has been difficult to understand due to the dearth of sites thus far investigated. Recent excavations at Kanaljorden in Sweden, however, have revealed disarticulated human crania intentionally placed at the bottom of a former lake. The adult crania exhibited antemortem blunt force trauma patterns differentiated by sex that were probably the result of interpersonal violence; the remains of wooden stakes were recovered inside two crania, indicating that they had been mounted. Taphonomic factors suggest that the human bodies were manipulated prior to deposition. This unique site challenges our understanding of the handling of the dead during the European Mesolithic.

This was a hot topic at the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) 2019 meeting in July.  September 28, 2010 — An agreement has been reached to begin joint development of a world-first novel proton beam therapy (PBT) system for cancer treatment under Japan’s FIRST program. Treatment will start in 2014.Hokkaido University and Hitachi Ltd. will jointly develop a new type of PBT system by combining with the world-leading Japanese advanced medical technology. The proposed system was awarded a grant under the Funding Program for World-Leading Innovative R&D on Science and Technology (FIRST Program), a national project sponsored by the Japanese government. In line with the agreement, Hitachi will deliver this therapy system to Hokkaido University.The FIRST Program is a major Japanese government initiative to incubate the world-leading science and technology to establish future Japanese technical backbone. Only 30 Core Researchers and Projects were awarded grants out of 565 applications throughout Japan in March 2010 by the Council for Science and Technology Policy. Hokkaido University’s Sustainable Development of Molecular-Tracking Radiotherapy System project, applied for by professor Hiroki Shirato, Department of Radiation Medicine, Graduate School of Medicine, was the only application accepted in the field of radiation therapy. The proposed system is expected to advance radiation cancer therapy in Japan. Hokkaido University and Hitachi will combine real-time moving tumor tracking technology and spot scanning irradiation technology for the first time in the world to develop a compact and high-performance PBT system that can precisely target moving respiratory tumors. The new facility will be constructed adjacent to the Hokkaido University Hospital. It is scheduled to break ground in the fiscal year 2011 and be completed in March 2014. After completion, the new facility will start patient treatment as a part of Hokkaido University Hospital.PBT is an advanced type of cancer radiotherapy. Protons, the atomic nucleus of hydrogen, are accelerated to high speed and their energy is concentrated on tumors. PBT enables patients to enjoy a normal life during treatment because almost no pain is associated with treatment and damage to the body’s functions or form is limited to the minimal level. PBT has thus attracted attention as a cutting-edge therapy for treating cancer while maintaining patients’ quality of life (QOL). In addition, because dose is concentrated to a small spot, PBT can focus easily on cancers that do not move, like brain tumors. But treatment to tumors in areas such as the lungs and liver, which move in accordance with respiration, needs special care, and the combination of PBT with real-time tracking to target the tumor location is desirable.Hokkaido University has focused on the development of technologies to concentrate irradiation dose to tumor locations for more than half a century. Professor Shirato has successfully developed real-time moving tumor tracking technology that automatically identifies the location of a gold marker inserted in the proximity of a moving tumor with X-ray fluoroscopic images and irradiates only when the tumor comes to the anticipated marker position. He has also developed the world’s first 4-D (four-dimensional) X-ray radiation therapy system employing this technology. These breakthroughs enable accurate targeting of X-ray radiation therapy to moving respiratory tumors by using real-time images.In May 2008, Hitachi’s first spot-scanning irradiation technology that can concentrate irradiation dose to the tumor shape started patient treatment at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Proton Therapy Center, one of the world’s largest hospitals specializing in cancer treatment. This marked the first clinical application of spot-scanning irradiation technology in a general hospital.Hokkaido University and Hitachi entered into a comprehensive academia-industry collaboration agreement in April 2003 and since then have been conducting various joint researches. In the medical field, in particular, they have been jointly developing new molecular imaging technology for assessing and diagnosing the radio-resistance of cells that are critical in radiation therapy. This research trajectory followed selection of the technology in fiscal 2006 as a Future Drug Discovery and Medical Care Innovation Program as part of a major national project funded by the Special Coordination Fund for Promoting Science and Technology of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, which is expected to last for 10 years.Under the FIRST Program, Hokkaido University and Hitachi will develop a PBT system that can accurately irradiate respiratory moving tumors by combining for the first time in the world the real-time moving tumor tracking technology accumulated by Hokkaido University in X-ray treatment and the spot-scanning irradiation technology Hitachi was first to deliver to a general hospital. Because protons boast superior dose distribution to X-rays, the combination of real-time moving tumor tracking technology and spot-scanning irradiation technology should yield more precise irradiation by drawing on the advantages of both technologies. Hokkaido University and Hitachi will combine their respective technologies, knowledge and experience in the medical and engineering fields to contribute to cutting-edge radiation cancer therapy that maintains excellent QOL for patients through the development of this PBT system. Development work aims to popularize PBT worldwide by reducing the size of and simplifying accelerators and irradiation systems, to create a system that is internationally competitive.Note: In parallel with development of a PBT system to create a Sustainable Development of Molecular-Tracking Radiotherapy System, Kyoto University professor Masahiro Hiraoka, who was a joint proposer of the project, plans to develop a tracking-image X-ray therapy system that tracks and irradiates tumors in the X-ray therapy field.Overview of the PBT facility:Planned construction site: Hokkaido University Campus, Kita 13, Nishi 6, Kita-ku, SapporoSite area: Approx. 2,000 m2Planned building floor area: 946.94 m2Planned total area: 2,850.48 m2Structure and size: Four-floor, steel-reinforced concrete structureIrradiation chamber: One rotating gantry treatment roomOverview of real-time moving tumor-tracking technology:Real-time moving tumor-tracking technology inserts a 2 mm-diameter gold marker in the proximity of the tumor and uses a computed tomography (CT) system to identify the marker position in relation to the tumor core. Using an X-ray fluoroscopic system from two directions, the technology automatically pinpoints the gold marker position on a fluoroscopic image with pattern recognition technology and repeatedly calculates at intervals the spatial position. The targeted tumor will be irradiated only when the gold marker is located within several millimeters from the planned position.As this operation is performed at high speed, it is possible for the first time in the world to irradiate the moving cancer cells with high accuracy. Compared with a conventional method to irradiate the whole area over which the tumor might migrate, this system reduces the irradiation volume to the level of one-half to one-quarter, thereby enabling a dramatic reduction of the irradiation of normal tissue.Overview of spot-scanning irradiation technologySpot-scanning irradiation technology does not scatter proton beams like conventional PBT method. Rather, it repeatedly turns the narrow beam on and off at high speed as it progressively changes location to irradiate the whole tumor volume. The protons can be targeted with high precision according to the shape of tumors, even those with complex shapes, eventually minimizing the impact on normal tissue.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 First Patient Enrolled in World’s Largest Brain Cancer Clinical Trial Henry Ford Cancer Institute is first-in-the-world to enroll a glioblastoma patient in the GBM AGILE Trial (Adaptive… read more News | Radiation Therapy | August 16, 2019 Drug Accelerates Blood System’s Recovery After Radiation, Chemotherapy A drug developed by UCLA physician-scientists and chemists speeds up the regeneration of mouse and human blood stem… read more center_img The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Up to that point, however, Jefferson had been one of the Cardinals’ best defenders.“Disruptive; a guy that made a bunch of plays for us. One of the most consistent guys that we had defensively,” Cardinals defensive coordinator James Bettcher said of Jefferson. “Week in and week out, you could count on Tony. He was going to make plays that are going to change the game. He’s going to cover tight ends, and I thought he did a really great job when we put him in one-on-ones with tight ends this year.“I think he had a really, really good year. I was disappointed for him from a Pro Bowl standpoint that he didn’t get voted. I thought this is a guy that is one of the top players at his position in this league.”Going forward, the question surrounding Jefferson is regarding whether or not he will continue with the Cardinals. Jefferson said the two sides have been talking.“Obviously I want to be here, they want me back, so we’ll try to do what we can do,” he said. “The worst part about the great NFL is the business side, so you’ve got to let that stuff play out how it goes.“But I think the interest between each of us is obviously mutual — this is pretty much my home.” Arizona Cardinals strong safety Tony Jefferson (22) celebrates his fumble recovery against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the first half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Sept. 18, 2016, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) LISTEN: Tony Jefferson, Cardinals’ safety “It’s cool, it’s definitely cool,” Jefferson told Burns and Gambo on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM Friday. “But, personally, with that chip on my shoulder, I feel like I’ve earned it. It’s been a while — it’s been a long time coming for this, to get this type of attention — but, you know, money is always good, obviously, for your family and stuff, but I don’t play the sport for that.“I love playing football, I love the game. So I’m more focused on that aspect than the money part. Obviously money’s tight, but I don’t really play for that.”Jefferson has long felt unappreciated — if not by the Cardinals than by the rest of the NFL — after he entered the league as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Oklahoma in 2013. He played in all 16 games as a rookie, starting two, but made most of his contribution on special teams.His role increased the following season, however, as he started nine games and received more action at safety, and in 2015 he started seven games. This past season he started 14 of 15 games played, with the one non-start coming after he sprained his MCL on special teams early in Arizona’s Week 16 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories 0 Comments   Share   Tony Jefferson had the best season of his career in 2016, tallying 92 tackles to go along with two sacks, five passes defensed, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.His timing could not have been much better.Jefferson was playing under a one-year contract signed last offseason, when he was a restricted free agent.Now, he is an unrestricted free agent, and at 24 years old seems to be in line for a nice pay day. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Last offseason saw the Cardinals part ways with a couple members of their secondary, with cornerback Jerraud Powers and safety Rashad Johnson moving on to new teams. The idea that more, like Jefferson, could depart this offseason is a tough idea for some to stomach.“There’s a lot of great guys with a lot of talent,” dollar linebacker Deone Bucannon said, not necessarily referring to Jefferson specifically. “We have great camaraderie and we’re all tight-knit and I would just love for everybody to stay.”As Jefferson said, though, while there is interest on both sides to keep him in Arizona, the NFL is a business and nothing is guaranteed.Right now, Jefferson said, his focus is on rehabilitation, not wanting to explore free agency for a little just to see what his market value may be.The way he sees it, if he re-signs without ever really exploring the free agent market, it’s on the team to make it happen.“That goes both ways,” he said. “At the same time, I’m just ready to work out again, to be honest. I just want all that stuff to unfold on its own.“I can’t control much of that; I think my tape and myself and how I’m viewed to Arizona and whoever, I think that’s going to speak for itself.” Your browser does not support the audio element.
