CCTV camera bylaws

City staff have been given the green light to work with Hamilton Police to see about changing CCTV camera bylaws, allowing home owners and businesses to record on more than just their property.The current bylaw allows people to position security cameras to point only on their property. This change would permit residential, commercial and private properties to film sidewalks and the roads, something many in this city have been doing already and have helped solve crimes.Whether it’s an attempted robbery or catching a recycling worker throw blue bins directly into the truck. City Councillors say a lot of crime occurs on the streets and surveillance footage is helping police catch the people responsible.Councillor Lloyd Ferguson, the Chair of the Police Board, says a bylaw change is long overdue, “These are new technologies available to help solve crime and they have worked recently.”In the murder case of Tim Bosma, CCTV cameras were used to pick up the movement of his killers.In Waterdown the suspected gunman who killed Angelo Musitano was caught on camera.Councillors say if security cameras weren’t pointed towards Chesapeake Drive in Waterdown, police would never have spotted a vehicle tied to another murder case in Vaughn.This case and others are why Councillor Sam Merulla calls the current bylaw nonsensical, “Here are these residents that have contributed to such a successful end result but yet would be subject to bylaw infractions.”A first offence under the current rules could cost you up to $20, 000 but catching someone is nearly impossible without a warrant.Ontario’s Former Privacy Commissioner is strongly opposing the suggested change and raises a number of questions. “Who’s collecting this data? How is it being used?”After a scandal in Yellowknife where one of the employees were caught using the camera to watch women, track and follow them, Ann Cuvoukian says this is the exact thing politicians should want to avoid.If a new bylaw is created councillors say it will ensure property owners can’t point cameras into someone’s backyard or into another person’s window. City staff will be looking at the change and presenting council with their findings at a later date that is yet to be determined. read more

Most actively traded companies on the TSX

Companies in the news:Transat A.T. (TSX:TRZ). Down 42 cents or 2.5 per cent to $16.19. The fate of Air Canada’s $720-million takeover bid for Transat A.T. Inc. rests with regulators after shareholders overwhelmingly approved the acquisition offer Friday. In a special meeting, shareholders of the Quebec-based tour operator voted 94.77 per cent in favour of accepting the $18-per-share transaction from the country’s largest airline. The deal will narrow the field of airline competition, securing for Air Canada about 60 per cent of the Canadian transatlantic market and helping the company maintain a firm hold on Montreal air travel.TC Energy Corp. (TSX:TRP). Down 42 cents to $64.37. One of the last major hurdles for the Keystone XL crude oil pipeline was removed on Friday by the Nebraska Supreme Court which rejected an attempt to force the developer to reapply for state approval. The court upheld the decision of regulators who voted in November 2017 to greenlight a route through the state. The court’s decision was a victory for the US$8-billion project, which has been mired in lawsuits and regulatory hearings since it was proposed in 2008. The Nebraska Public Service Commission voted 3-2 in favour of an “alternative route” for Keystone XL instead of TC Energy’s preferred pathway for the pipeline.Cargojet Inc. (TSX:CJT). Up $11.66 or 12.86 per cent to $102.33. Shares in Cargojet Inc. shot to a record high Friday after the company announced a new deal with that could see the online retailer acquire a stake in the company that provides overnight air cargo services. Amazon already uses Cargojet’s charter aircraft services to move packages from Amazon warehouses to distribution centres for final delivery, but the deal announced Friday is designed to encourage it to use the network even more. Under the agreement, Mississauga, Ont.-based Cargojet will issue warrants to Amazon for variable voting shares that will vest based on milestones of business that Amazon gives Cargojet.

Senior UN official calls for investigation into death of Palestinian in Israeli

Mr. Jaradat, who was arrested on 18 February, died on Saturday, according to a statement released by the office of the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Robert Serry.“The Special Coordinator takes note of the preliminary findings of the autopsy that was conducted on Mr. Jaradat’s body with the participation of Israeli and Palestinian experts,” said the statement. “The United Nations expects the autopsy to be followed by an independent and transparent investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Jaradat’s death, the results of which should be made public as soon as possible.” Mr. Serry and Deputy Special Coordinator James W. Rawley discussed the situation of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli detention today with Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad and Palestinian Chief Negotiator Saeb Erekat. Both Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay have spoken out in recent days about Palestinian detainees in Israeli custody, particularly following reports of the fast deteriorating health conditions of several who have been on hunger strike. “The United Nations remains concerned about the deteriorating health of Palestinian detainees on hunger strike, and reiterates that those held in administrative detention without charge should be charged and face trial with judicial guarantees in accordance with international standards, or promptly released,” said today’s statement.It added that the UN is closely monitoring the situation on the ground “where mounting tensions present a real risk of destabilization.” “The United Nations appeals for maximum restraint by all parties to prevent further violence. The United Nations will continue engaging with the parties on the ground with a view to finding a solution that addresses the plight of prisoners and preserves the calm.” read more

Jorge Villafanas MLS journey started with an open tryout

PORTLAND, Ore. — Portland Timbers defender Jorge Villafana was just a kid in high school when he got a shot at reality show stardom.Villafana’s uncle signed him up for the first Sueno MLS, or Dream MLS, essentially a made-for-TV tryout to play in the league. In 2007, the prize was a shot at Chivas USA’s under-19 team.For Villafana, it was Survivor-esque. He beat out 1,900 hopefuls to win the contest and later that year he was signed to an MLS contract with Chivas.And the rest, as they say, is history.“It gave me the opportunity to be what I wanted. It gave me the opportunity to become a professional soccer player. Every kid who loves soccer, it’s the dream to play at the highest level,” Villafana said. “Sueno MLS gave me that opportunity.”The California native, nicknamed Sueno for obvious reasons, now plays at left back for the Timbers, who visit Sporting Kansas City in the second leg of the Western Conference finals on Thursday night. The two teams played to a scoreless draw in the opening leg last Sunday. Villafana nearly scored in the opening match, but his shot early in the game caromed off the post.It is Villafana’s second stint with the Timbers. He was also on the team that won the 2015 MLS Cup.Villafana’s career path is something of a league legend. Not only did his Sueno MLS turn earn him a spot on a team, but since then he’s also played in Liga MX and has become a regular on the U.S. national team. He was on the U.S. roster for the team’s two recent exhibition matches against England and Italy.Villafana was a high school senior when he tried out for Sueno MLS. Known then as Jorge Flores, he seized the opportunity as the youngest player on the under-19 Chivas team and caught the eye of the club’s top level coach, Predrag Radosavljevic.“I always wanted to be a professional soccer player, so when the opportunity came up I looked at a possible way to become a professional,” said Villafana, who changed his last name later in his career to honour his mother. “It turned out to be a good one.”Villafana went on to appear in 86 matches with now-defunct Chivas before he was traded to the Timbers in 2013. He made 50 starts with Portland and played an important role in the team’s 2-1 victory over the Columbus Crew in the MLS Cup.“It’s always amazing when you are able to raise a trophy, and that was the first time I was able to do it, and the first time in club history. It was an amazing feeling,” he said. “But it never gets old, every time you get to lift a trophy it’s like you’ve never done it before.”Following the championship season, Villafana was sold to Santos Laguna in Liga MX, making 53 appearances with the club before getting re-acquired by the Timbers in August. He also won a title in that league.In May, Villafana and his wife were robbed after exchanging currency at a mall in the city of Torreon, Mexico, where Villafana was for the Liga MX final. His team went on to win the league’s Clausura championship.“I think it was time for me and my family to come back,” Villafana said. “When I left to go to Mexico, if I ever came back it was going to be to Portland — and luckily they did everything possible to bring me back.”He said he and his wife and their three small children are content in the Pacific Northwest.“It’s amazing. I love it, my family loves it. The fans are incredible. And the club is always in a good position to win,” he said. “So it’s perfect.”Anne M. Peterson, The Associated Press read more

Expansion of Leixlip Water Treatment Plant means more water for Dublin

first_imgTHE LEIXLIP PLANT Expansion scheme has been opened in order to meet the current water demand.The new stand-alone €30 million water treatment facility will provide water treatment capacity of an additional 80 million litres of water per day for consumers in the Greater Dublin supply area, bringing overall production at Leixlip to 215 million litres per day.Dublin’s drinking waterThe Leixlip Plant is the second largest water treatment plant in the country and supplies approximately 30 per cent of the Dublin Region’s drinking water requirements, supplying North Dublin City and County as well as parts of South County Dublin and Kildare.The reservoir supplies water for over 130,000 customers in the Greater Dublin area and works were carried on time and under budget.Irish Water welcomed the official opening by the Minister for the Environment Phil Hogan.“The rapid growth of residential and commercial development in the catchment area created a critical situation whereby an increase in water demand outstripped supply. The additional capacity provided by this new plant is vital to meet the current water demand whilst also providing capacity to meet future development needs,” said Hogan.Read: ‘Scandalous’: One TD does not want gardaí at water meter protests>Read: Excessive lead levels in drinking water a ‘danger for young children’>last_img read more

Crucial Adrenaline adds an SSD cache to your hard drive

first_imgIf your hard drive is starting to show its age, and a quick defrag doesn’t help improve its performance very much, then it might be time to consider an upgrade. But do you replace the drive with a brand new one, or spend a lot more cash and go with a fast SSD instead?Crucial have decided to give you a third option with the introduction of the Adrenaline SSD drive. It’s only 50GB in size, but isn’t meant to act as a main storage device. Instead, Crucial has set this drive up as a large, very fast cache for the most frequently used files on your system.The drive is based on the Crucial m4 SSD, meaning up to 500MB/s read speeds and 95MB/s writes. When combined with the included Dataplex caching software Crucial believe you can see up to an 8x improvement in data access when compared to using a standard hard drive alone.It takes up to three runs of the software to achieve optimum performance as the drive and caching system needs to figure out what your most frequent files are, but after that there should be a very noticeable improvement in boot times and overall data access for common applications.At $117.99 the Adrenaline is around the same price as a 750GB hard drive. You could argue it’s worth the investment if the 8x performance gain is realistic, and it’s certainly cheaper than one of the latest generation SSDs. Crucial also include everything you need to fit the Adrenaline in the box, including a 3.5-inch adapter bracket, screws, and a SATA cable.Check out the installation video below:Read more at Cruciallast_img read more

Man who beat girlfriend and bit her face given threeyear suspended sentence

first_img Short URL 23,109 Views A WICKLOW MAN who beat his girlfriend for over an hour and bit her on the face after they had an argument in their home has been given a suspended sentence.Judge Melanie Greally said Ian Sheridan (32) carried out a very serious assault involving considerable violence but that a “custodial sentence is not necessitated”. She said Sheridan had dealt with his “demons” including addressing his drink and drug problems.The judge noted Sheridan raised €1,600 in compensation for his former partner Patricia Rodriguez, but that she did not want to accept it. The money would instead be donated to the women’s refuge Ms Rodriguez attended after the assault.Judge Greally imposed a three-year sentence which she suspended for three years on condition Sheridan keeps the peace and engages with the restorative justice programme.Dublin Circuit Criminal Court heard that after the assault Ms Rodriguez sneaked out of the house when Sheridan eventually fell asleep. She never returned to the home again and spent some time in a women’s refuge. The couple had moved in together the previous month.Sheridan of New Brighton Terrace, Parnell Road, Bray pleaded guilty to assault causing harm on February 21, 2015.Garda Paul Newport told Maddie Grant BL, prosecuting, that Ms Rodriguez and Sheridan had an argument at their home that evening. She left to get some fresh air and coffee before returning back home. Sheridan arrived back an hour and half later.Ms Rodriguez later told gardaí she could smell alcohol from Sheridan and assumed he had been drinking.Sheridan then grabbed her hair, punched her around her eye and bit her face twice around her jaw. He also punched her all over her body.The victim said the violence lasted an hour or two and he wouldn’t stop when she asked him to. Sheridan dragged her from the bedroom to the living room during the attack.It came to an end when she suggested they go to sleep. She lay in bed awake and when she felt he had fallen asleep, she left, leaving most of her belongings behind.Sheridan was arrested but made no admissions during interview. He has previous convictions for theft, public order and road traffic offences.A victim impact and medical reports were handed into court but not read out.Garda Newport agreed with Kim Moloney BL, defending that Sheridan had offered Ms Rodriguez €1,600 as a token of his remorse and handed in a letter of apology.Counsel told Judge Greally that her client suffered from psychosis brought on by drug and alcohol abuse but he was now no longer using drugs. A probation report concluded that he was at a low risk of re-offending.Read: Man wanted on charges of kidnapping his ex-partner surrenders himself to authoritiesRead: Teen who repeatedly kicked his mother in head pleads guilty to dealing cocaine Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article By Sonya McLean and Conor Gallagher Share1113 Tweet Email2 Image: William Murphy 69 Comments Mar 1st 2017, 3:26 PM Wednesday 1 Mar 2017, 3:26 PM Man who beat girlfriend and bit her face given three-year suspended sentence The judge said that a “custodial sentence was not necessitated” in this case.

Partage des données privées Facebook recule

first_imgPartage des données privées : Facebook reculeLe week-end dernier Facebook annonçait que les développeurs qui travaillent avec l’API Social Graph avaient désormais accès aux données personnelles des internautes qui ont un profil sur son site. Face aux critiques, le réseau social fait aujourd’hui marche arrière. Les nouveaux accès à la vie privée des inscrits à Facebook sont désormais “en attente”, selon Deux jours après avoir annoncé que ces données confidentielles étaient désormais accessibles aux développeurs, le réseau social semble reculer face à une vague de protestation.Facebook proposait aux développeurs d’applications tierces l’accès aux numéros de téléphone et adresse postale des membres qui ont renseigné ces champs sur leur profil.

Casemiro Ronaldo should win Ballon dOr not Modric

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo should win the Ballon d’Or this year instead of Luka Modric, says the Croatian’s Real Madrid team-mate CasemiroModric has had the most impressive year of his career to date and has already beaten Ronaldo to the World Cup Golden Ball and the UEFA Player of the Year awards.The 32-year-old playmaker is now being heavily backed by the likes of Real teammate Isco to put an end to Ronaldo and Lionel Messi’s decade-long hold of the Ballon d’Or.Modric’s prospects were likely increased following another superb display for Real in Tuesday night’s Champions League opener against AS Roma, which saw the Croatian’s flawless pass create an opening for Gareth Bale to score the second goal in the club’s 3-0 win.Meanwhile, Ronaldo was shown a straight red card after just 29 minutes into his Champions League debut for Juventus against Valencia for an off-the-ball incident with defender Jeison Murillo.But Casemiro feels that former teammate Ronaldo deserves a sixth Ballon d’Or because it was his goals last season that helped fire Real to a third successive Champions League crown.Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic, Manchester UnitedVidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.“Luka’s year has been spectacular,” Casemiro told reporters on SportsMax.“But in my opinion, I would give it to Cristiano Ronaldo because he has been the best throughout last season.”Isco and substitute Mariano Diaz were the other goalscorers as Los Blancos began the defence of their Champions League title with a 3-0 win over Roma.“Last year they reached the semi-finals, almost got to the final, we have to value the match we have played,” Casemiro added.“I would say it was almost perfect, I’ll keep the goal chances that we have created. We will correct [mistakes], the important thing is to create 30 goal chances.“With Luka, Toni [Kroos] and Isco we have known each other for a long time, the quality they have is impressive, everything is easier, I know them and we feel very comfortable.”last_img read more

ONGC RIL to gain as gas prices set for a steep hike

first_imgA technician is pictured inside a desalter plant of Oil and Natural Gas Corp (ONGC) on the outskirts of Ahmedabad, India, September 30, 2016.Reuters fileCompanies such as Oil & Natural Gas Corp and Reliance Industries will be the biggest beneficiaries, if the government raises domestic natural gas prices next week.Indian government may raise domestic natural gas prices to its highest level in two years, PTI reported on Thursday citing sources close to the development.Price paid to most of natural gas produced from domestic fields is likely to be hiked to $3.06 per million British thermal unit (mmbtu) from April 1, from current $2.89, the report said.The move, if implemented, will translate into higher compressed natural gas (CNG) price and increase cost of electricity and urea production.For every one dollar rise in natural gas price, state-run ONGC’s annual net revenue increases by Rs 4,000 crore and net profit by Rs 2,300 crore.The impact on oil-to-telecom conglomerate Reliance Industries’ profitability is not likely to be as significant given the company’s low gas production of about 4.9 million metric standard cubic meters per day.While the increase in gas price will boost earnings of producers, it will also lead to a rise in CNG price and natural gas piped to households.As per the new gas pricing formula, gas prices are to be revised every six months based on average rates in gas-surplus nations like the U.S., Russia and Canada.Gas price was last hiked to $2.89 per mmbtu for October 2017 to March 2018 period from $2.48 earlier, which was the first hike in nearly three years.last_img read more

Galveston County Holds First Ever Transportation Conference

first_img X 00:00 /01:18 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Gail DelaughterCongressman Randy Weber (R-Friendswood) speaks at the Galveston County Transportation Conference about the importance of long-term federal transportation funding.The U.S. Census Bureau says Galveston County’s population grew by close to 11-percent between 2010 and 2015.And while the county is happy to add to its tax base, local officials say there’s still worried: How do you evacuate all those people before a major hurricane?That was one of the big topics at the first-ever Galveston County Transportation Summit.Precinct 2 Commissioner Joe Giusti says it’s extremely important for Galveston to evacuate first. Because history shows that it will be very difficult for residents to leave the coast.“Then I have a situation like we did during Hurricane Rita when Galveston County’s at the back of a stack when Harris County and everybody else is leaving early,” Giusti says. “And we have people dying in traffic, that’s my biggest fear.” But officials say some new road projects should help more people evacuate faster.In 2019, TxDOT hopes to start the process of widening I-45 from FM 1764 to the Galveston Causeway.  It will go from six lanes to eight.Precinct 4 Commissioner Ken Clark believes it will help “If we can get people to leave in a staged fashion, it should really make an evacuation not only efficient but very smooth also,” Clark says.State Highway 146 is also being widened in Seabrook and that includes a new bridge near the Kemah Boardwalk.

Bengal receives investment proposals worth Rs 284 lakh crore at BGBS 2019

first_imgKolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced on Friday that the state has secured investment proposals worth Rs 2.84 lakh crore in the Bengal Global Business Summit 2019, which is expected to create 8 to 10 lakh jobs in the state.”We have received proposals worth Rs 2,84,288 crore. This is the achievement of BGBS. Investment means business and business means creation of jobs. Whatever investment proposals we have received, will create an additional 8 to 10 lakh jobs in the state,” said Banerjee while speaking at the concluding session of the fifth edition of the two-day summit. Last year, the state had received investment proposals worth Rs 2,19,925 crore. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata Bose”86 Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) were signed, 45 business to consumer (B2C) and 1,200 business to business (B2B) meetings were held in these two days. Don’t you think it is a remarkable success? This itself proves the credibility, accountability and sincerity of the participants and the state government,” she said, reiterating that India should tread the path of Bengal in near future. “We don’t allow strikes, suspension of work and workers’ unrest. Our workers are our assets. We have talented youths. Our focus is always on creating more jobs,” she asserted. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: Mamata”It is because of you (delegates) that Bengal has successfully organised the conference. No state in India can do the same like this. With our initiatives and vision, we prove that Bengal is not only the best but also the destination of investments for near future,” Banerjee added. She reiterated that while India has lost 2 crore jobs in 2018 due to demonetisation and hasty implementation of Goods and Service Tax (GST), Bengal has reduced unemployment by 40 percent. The Chief Minister also announced that the state has already added another 100 acres in the Silicon Valley Hub in New Town, in order to accommodate a host of IT firms and academic institutes, namely Capgemini, Tech Mahindra, ISI, Society for Applied Microwave Research and others. The total area of the Silicon Valley will thus be 200 acres. Later, while addressing a Press conference, state Finance and Industry minister Amit Mitra said that 40 percent of the cumulative investment proposals received in the last four summits have been fructified. A report in this regard has been submitted to the Assembly, he said. The state government has also decided that the IT companies of Bantala that are eager to shift to Silicon Valley can do so. “The move will lead to a huge scope for employment in the IT sector,” said Mitra who is also the IT minister. An additional 70 acres has been added in the Bantala Leather Complex to accommodate tanneries from Kanpur and Chennai. The complex currently employs a workforce of 1.2 lakh and with the additional units, it will employ an additional two lakh people. According to Mitra, 51 delegates from UK, 63 from the Republic of Korea, 28 from Italy, 35 from Germany, 35 from Poland, 47 from Japan and 26 from USA participated in the summit. Two apps were launched on the occasion, namely the Shipadisha app for addressing grievances of industrialists and Export Facilitation mobile app for connecting artisans with global exporters. The Chief Minister invited industrialists and overseas delegates to attend the next edition of the global investors’ meet, along with their family members.last_img read more

The company said data from the multicenter clinical investigation showed promising results for detecting patients with polyps in an un-prepped colon.The objective of the study is to assess safety and clinical performance of the C-Scan system Version 3 in detecting patients with polyps. In a recent multicenter study on 31 evaluable patients, the C-Scan system Version 3, equipped with improved algorithms, demonstrated a sensitivity of 76 percent (P=0.0038), with specificity of 80 percent for polyp detection, when using the full patient population with a gender-based analysis. Confirmatory colonoscopy and C-Scan system results analysis were performed by independent expert investigators who were blinded to corresponding tests’ results.Improvements to the C-Scan system version 3 include better scan imaging density, 2-D/3-D imaging, and a new motility analysis algorithm that was recently tested on two years of continued clinical study data.Prof. Nadir Arber, M.D., principal investigator and professor of internal medicine and gastroenterology and head of the Health Promotion Center and Integrated Cancer Prevention Center at the Tel-Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, Israel, stated, “I believe that these interim clinical results demonstrate the C-Scan system’s potential to become a meaningful colon cancer prevention device.” He continued, “Despite the large body of evidence suggesting that polyp detection and removal can decrease CRC incidence and mortality, the screening adherence among target population is still relatively low. By maintaining this level of clinical performance, C-Scan has the ability to influence screening adherence for those who are unable to undergo a colonoscopy or are unwilling to choose standard CRC screening tests for precancerous polyp detection or stool collection (known to be less effective for precancerous polyp detection) due to common barriers such as unpleasant bowel preparation requirements, invasiveness or stool collection. C-Scan continuously supports the promise to provide a patient-friendly option that could potentially increase CRC screening rates and save lives.”Prof. Jan Tack, M.D., Ph.D., professor of medicine, Translational Research Center for Gastrointestinal Disorders (TARGID), University of Leuven. Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, University of Leuven and head of clinic, University Hospital Gasthuisberg, Department of Gastroenterology, stated, “I believe that the diagnostic yield of the C-Scan system, based on the combined diagnostic test, including scan imaging and gut motility, can be accepted as an important CRC screening tool following results ‘validation on a larger data base.”Prof. Yehuda Ringel, M.D., chief, Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at Meir Medical Center, affiliated with Tel Aviv University and adjunct professor of medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, stated, “The novel data on possible association between intestinal motility and colon polyps may provide new insight into the natural history of CRC. Identifying intestinal motility as a contributing risk factor for CRC has the potential to further improve screening protocols for patients at risk for CRC.”Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States, with an estimated 135,000 diagnoses and 50,000 deaths in 2017. Despite compelling evidence that screening can detect colorectal cancer and precancerous polyps, nearly one-third of the recommended adult population has never been screened. The C-Scan® system is designed to improve patient experience with screening by eliminating many uncomfortable and invasive requirements of other colon screening procedures, such as bowel preparation, fasting and sedation.Check-Cap CEO Alex Ovadia said final results for the post-CE approval study on a more substantial number of patients are planned for the second quarter of 2019. He said the company still plans to deliver on its near-term goals for the remainder of 2018 and forward, including the establishment of a manufacturing line through GE Healthcare.A U.S. pilot trial of the C-Scan system Version 3 is planned to begin in the fourth quarter of this year.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Breast Imaging | August 02, 2019 Volpara to Distribute Screenpoint Medical’s Transpara AI Solution Volpara Solutions and ScreenPoint Medical BV signed an agreement under which Volpara will sell ScreenPoint’s Transpara… read morelast_img read more
