CUNA is alerting its national grassroots action network, strongly urging credit union employees, volunteers and members to contact their senators to express support for the Data Security Act of 2015 (S. 961).CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle calls the bill the best attempt so far at legislation to stop merchant data breaches.S. 961 would strengthen merchant data security standards to be comparable with those of credit unions and mandate a federal notification requirement for merchants when breaches occur.The bill also provides a floor for data security standards nationwide and also includes the important provision to exclude financial institutions from the requirements as they are already subject to rigorous standards under the Gramm-Leach Bliley Act. It was introduced April 15 by Sens. Tom Carper (D-Del.) and Roy Blunt (R-Mo.). continue reading » 12SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
The training will resume in earnest tomorrow, although in the absence of a medical protocol agreed with the FIGC and Government, they are currently only running around the pitches. “We have worked closely with experts from the Biomedical Campus, to have as much information as possible available to us about how to try to prevent any spread of Covid-19, and to understand how to implement those measures at our training centre,” Chief Global Sporting Officer Manolo Zubiria told the club website. “As a result we have worked on a precisely detailed protocol, one that has also been approved by Regione Lazio, the local authority. “There are three stations set up to measure the temperature and oxygen levels of anyone entering the complex, with one station dedicated exclusively for the use of players and coaching staff. Over the last couple of days we have begun with some medical assessments, without having any of the players come into contact with each other.” Players are split into small groups, which will alternate in three shifts, leaving only four players on each training pitch. “There will be more than 10 metres between each of the players. In terms of the workload, it will predominantly be athletic work, with some ball-work to regain a feel for the game. Staff on the pitches will all wear masks. “The players will arrive wearing masks, which they will keep on up until the start of the training session. They will have their temperature measured, oxygen levels recorded via pulse oximetry and then will also complete a Covid-19 specific health questionnaire. “They will then go to their individual rooms, where they will be able to change and then head directly to the training pitch – because the dressing rooms and other common areas will be kept closed. “Pitchside the players will find their boots, along with all the fluids they will need throughout the session. At the end of training, they will leave the pitch one at a time and return to their rooms – where they will be able to take a shower and leave all the materials they have used during the course of the training session in a bag that they will have to seal up.” read also:Roma: ‘Ban on training incomprehensible’ If a player arrives at Trigoria and his temperature is elevated, he’ll be put in an isolation room and checked again. “Our physiotherapists will all have to wear one-use protective equipment; including masks, gloves and protective eyewear. All of them will work in a well-ventilated space, and we will never have two physiotherapists working at the same time in the same area.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Roma outlined the extent of the precautions they are taking to protect players and staff from COVID-19 after their return to work, including temperature and oxygen checks at the door.

Financial analysts have said the cost of Scripps Networks International’s deal for TVN could rise to US$2 billion (€1.89 billion) if it moves for the outstanding shares in the Polish broadcast group.Having bought 52.7% of TVN, SNI is required by Polish law to move for an additional 13% of its stock, and has the option to tender for more.Including the assumption of US$882 million of TVN debt, the €584 million (US$615 million) deal for TVN will increase SNI’s debt load by about US$1.5 billion, according to Moody’s. The credit ratings agency has SNI on review for downgrade in the wake of the deal.“While Moody’s recognises the strategic rationale of the transaction and with a significantly strong dollar, the timing of the acquisition makes sense, the adverse impact from the incremental debt will lead to a level of deterioration in SNI’s credit metrics,” it said.Moody’s added that on current financial performance, Scripps does have the ability to pay down debt.Scripps has been aggressively expanding internationally. As well as the TVN deal, it is reportedly looking to take full control of the UKTV digital channels group.In the US, it is also expected to move this year for cabler Cox’s 35% stake in Travel Channel. It bought 65% of the cable net from Cox in late 2009.
Source:https://www.nimh.nih.gov/ Reviewed by Kate Anderton, B.Sc. (Editor)Feb 18 2019Researchers have shown that a type of magnetic resonance imaging — called neuromelanin-sensitive MRI (NM-MRI) — is a potential biomarker for psychosis. NM-MRI signal was found to be a marker of dopamine function in people with schizophrenia and an indicator of the severity of psychotic symptoms in people with this mental illness. The study, funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), part of the National Institutes of Health, appears in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.”Disturbances affecting the neurotransmitter dopamine are associated with a host of mental and neurological disorders, such as schizophrenia and Parkinson’s disease,” said Joshua A. Gordon, M.D., Ph.D., director of NIMH. “Because of the role dopamine plays in these disorders, the ability to measure dopamine activity is critical for furthering our understanding of these disorders, including how to best diagnose and treat them.”Neuromelanin is a dark pigment created within dopamine neurons of the midbrain — particularly in the substantia nigra, a brain area that plays a role in reward and movement. Neuromelanin accumulates over the lifespan and is only cleared away from cells following cell death, as occurs in neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. Researchers have found that NM-MRI signal is lower in the substantia nigra of people with Parkinson’s disease, reflecting the cell death that occurs in these patients.Despite the utility of this tool for detecting neuron loss in neurodegenerative illnesses, NM-MRI had not yet been shown to provide a marker of dopamine function, nor had its utility been demonstrated in individuals without neurodegenerative illnesses. In this study, Guillermo Horga, M.D., Ph.D., of Columbia University, New York, and colleagues conducted a series of validation studies to show that NM-MRI can serve as a marker of dopamine function in individuals without neurodegenerative disorders.”The main advantages of this technique are that, compared to other established and more direct measures of dopamine function, neuromelanin-sensitive MRI does not involve radiation or invasive procedures,” said Dr. Horga. “This advantage makes it more suitable for pediatric populations and for repeated scanning, which could be useful to monitor the progression of illness or response to treatment — and it only takes a short scan that could be implemented in most clinical scanners. It also affords a very high anatomical resolution compared with PET measures, which is important to examine functions or dysfunctions of specific parts of the substantia nigra.”The researchers first set out to determine whether NM-MRI could accurately detect regional variations in the concentration of neuromelanin in those without neurodegeneration of the substantia nigra. To examine the detection ability of NM-MRI, the researchers compared NM-MRI measurements of neuromelanin to chemical measurements of neuromelanin in post-mortem brain tissue. The researchers found, across all sections of tissue, that higher NM-MRI signal was associated with higher concentrations of neuromelanin. The results confirm, for the first time, the ability of NM-MRI to measure regional concentrations of neuromelanin. Furthermore, the results show that NM-MRI signal reflects concentrations of neuromelanin in tissue, rather than just the number of neuromelanin-containing neurons.Related StoriesTargeted treatment offers symptom relief for patients with psychosisResearch on cannabis use in women limited, finds new studyNew machine-learning method more precisely quantifies a known indicator for psychosisThe researchers next sought to determine whether NM-MRI could capture variations in neuromelanin in smaller anatomical subregions within the substantia nigra. Since dopamine function is thought to differ significantly in different parts of the substantia nigra, researchers needed to determine the ability of this tool to capture these anatomical differences. So, the researchers examined NM-MRI data from patients diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and individuals without Parkinson’s disease. The researchers found decreases in NM-MRI signal in those with Parkinson’s disease in the lateral, posterior, and ventral areas of the substantia nigra — findings that correspond to the known anatomical distribution of cell loss in this brain area in Parkinson’s disease. These results confirm that NM-MRI can capture known topographical variability within this brain structure.A next critical step was to show a connection between NM-MRI and dopamine function. The researchers collected measurements of dopamine release capacity (as measured using positron emission tomography (PET)) and NM-MRI data from people without neurodegenerative illnesses. Individuals with a higher NM-MRI signal had greater dopamine release capacity in the striatum (a core component of reward, motor, and cognitive systems). The researchers also found that NM-MRI signal in the substantia nigra was associated with functional MRI measures of regional cerebral blood flow.Lastly, the researchers examined the link between NM-MRI signal and psychosis severity, finding that more severe symptoms of psychosis were associated with higher NM-MRI signals in the nigrostriatal pathway of individuals with schizophrenia and in those at-risk for schizophrenia. Psychosis is associated with dopamine system dysfunction, characterized by greater dopamine release and synthesis capacity in the striatum. The findings suggest that NM-MRI is capturing this dopamine dysfunction, supporting the role of NM-MRI as a potential biomarker for psychosis.The findings reported in this study, taken together, validate the use of NM-MRI in populations beyond those with neurodegenerative disorders, showing it can serve as a measure of neuromelanin concentration and dopamine function in the substantia nigra.In describing the future directions of their research, Dr. Horga said, “We are now extending this work to see if we can detect abnormalities in neuromelanin signal that help us predict which individuals are more likely to develop a psychotic disorder among those who already show early symptoms of psychosis. We are also interested in exploring whether neuromelanin-sensitive MRI could be used in the future to determine who might best benefit from dopaminergic treatments.”
