New Delhi: A Delhi court on Monday allowed Robert Vadra, accused in a money laundering case, to travel abroad for six weeks for health reasons.Special Judge Arvind Kumar allowed him to travel to the US and the Netherlands and directed him to submit his travel schedule. It also imposed various conditions on him. The court, however, did not allow Vadra, brother-in law of Congress President Rahul Gandhi, to go to United Kingdom (UK).During the arguments, Vadra’s counsel KTS Tulsi told the court that Vadra will not go to the UK, as per his earlier prayer, “in view of objections raised by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) regarding his UK visit”.

The agency had expressed apprehension that the accused may destroy the evidence if allowed to go to UK. Vadra is facing allegations of money laundering in purchase of a property in London at 12, Bryanston Square, worth 1.9 million pounds. In its order, the court directed Vadra to submit the address of his stay abroad, along with his contact numbers, to the court before his departure. The court also directed him to furnish a bank guarantee for Rs 25 lakh, and inform the court about his arrival in India within 24 hours.

The applicant shall join the investigation within 72 hours of so informed by the investigating officer (IO),” the court said. Vadra had told the court that as per Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, he has a “small tumour in the large intestine for the further management of which he can take a second opinion in London if he wishes so”. ED had opposed the application, saying the medical condition was merely a pretext to go where laundered money is parked.
ROUYN NORANDA, Que. – The photo shows a bearded, tattooed barber lying on his side on the floor, using a pair of clippers to trim the hair of the young boy lying facedown beside him.Francis “Franz” Jacob says it’s just part of a day’s work, but the barber from Rouyn-Noranda, Que. has become an unlikely celebrity after the boy’s mother posted the photo online to thank him for going out of his way to accommodate her son Wyatt, who has autism.Jacob owns an old-fashioned barber shop that specializes in 1920 to 1950’s-style punk and rockabilly haircuts, but he says he’s also developed a connection with special needs clients like Wyatt.“Each time I’m doing Wyatt’s hair, he’s always going on the ground, moving around, sitting on his mom’s lap, standing beside the chair,” said Jacob, 45.“That’s why I have a wireless clipper now, because at first I had to follow Wyatt around and plug my clipper into (different outlets).”Jacob opened his salon two years ago in the mining city some 600 kilometres northwest of Montreal.Wyatt was his first client with autism, but since meeting him he’s taken on others.“Each one has different needs and reactions, so each time it’s about adjusting to the client,” he said.He also occasionally cuts hair for clients who are terminally ill.The boy’s mother, Fauve Lafreniere, told CBC News that haircuts are a challenge for Wyatt because he moves a lot and can be hypersensitive to touch.She said she posted the picture online in the hopes others would follow Jacob’s example in finding “other ways to approach differences.”Jacob says he’s received countless messages and phone calls since the photo began to make its way around the Internet.Since most of the photos taken at his shop are of slick rock-style haircuts, he’s glad people are getting to see another side of what he does.“In this case you can see the extra mile that the barber is doing,” he said.“I don’t mind going on the floor, I don’t see any difference between musicians or an autistic kid, it’s the same extra mile.”– with files from Morgan Lowrie in Montreal.
Hot on the heels of his Brit Award nomination, comes a new collaboration from chart-topping sound creator Naughty Boy: a brand-new PETA campaign that shows the Hotel Cabana producer reclining with his beloved cat, Naughty Bob, in his lap above the words “It’s Naughty Not to Neuter.”Naughty Boy’s PETA Ad“There’s no excuse for not neutering,” Naughty Boy says. “Animal shelters are severely crowded with dogs and cats, and that will continue as long as too many puppies and kittens are being born. We can fix the problem by ‘fixing’ our dogs and cats.”Why are Naughty Boy and PETA so fixated on getting animals fixed? One unspayed female cat and her offspring can produce 370,000 cats in just seven years, and an unneutered male can help create limitless litters of kittens. Every year in the UK, many thousands of unwanted animals are left at crowded animal shelters, where many must be put to death. The less fortunate ones will never make it to a shelter – they will be forced to fend for themselves in all weather extremes, lose battles with traffic and disease and have no constant food source. Fixing cats and dogs is also an easy way to ensure healthier, happier animals. Spaying females eliminates stressful heat periods and the risk of developing uterine infections, and it greatly reduces the risk of developing mammary cancer. Neutering makes males far less likely to roam or fight and prevents testicular cancer.Naughty Boy, also known as Shahid Khan, has worked with numerous musicians, including Chipmunk, Wiley, Leona Lewis, Jennifer Hudson, Cheryl Cole and Emeli Sandé. Hotel Cabana is his debut album, and its first single, “La La La,” featuring Sam Smith, reached the top of the UK’s music charts.Naughty Boy joins a growing list of musicians and producers – including Jay Sean, Waka Flocka Flame, Mark Ronson, Simon Cowell, Joss Stone, Paul McCartney and Morrissey – who have teamed up with PETA to promote kindness to animals.For more information, please visit PETA.org.uk.
Rabat – Brahim Ghali, the leader of the Polisario Front, has been pictured in conversation with an Israeli minister.The Times of Israel’s French edition reported that the Israeli Minister of Communications, Ayoub Kara, met with Ghali on Wednesday in Ecuador during the the investiture ceremony of Ecuadorian president Lenin Moreno.The Likud party minister was photographed talking to the president of the self-proclaimed Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (RASD). The picture stands in total contrast with the Polisario’s claims of being pro-Palestinians.The separatist group, along with Algeria, its main sponsor and ally, has long proclaimed themselves as supporting Palestine.Algerian pro-state media have constantly accused Morocco of establishing links with Israel even though the Rabat cut diplomatic relations with Tel Aviv in 2000 during the second Intifada.Ghali’s picture with the high Israeli official refute former the group’s claims of holding anti-Israel stances.Polisario has long sought to instrumentalize the Palestinian cause by using a similar flag and presenting itself as a “liberation movement.”
“The Paralympics are a powerful example of what can be achieved when everyone is given the opportunity to participate and perform to their full potential,” said Wilfried Lemke, the Secretary-General’s Special Adviser on Sport for Development and Peace.Last Thursday, he carried the Paralympic torch in downtown Vancouver and the following day, together with Philipp Craven, President of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), opened the Olympic Truce Wall.The traditional age-old truce urges warring parties to lay down their arms as the Olympic Games’ ancient Greek founders did some 2,700 years ago.Last week, he also addressed students at a Model UN Conference in Vancouver on the importance of the Paralympic movement in advancing the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which Canada ratified the day before the Paralympic Games kicked off on 10 March.The Convention, which entered into force in May 2008 and has so far been endorsed by 144 countries, is the culmination of years of global efforts to ensure that the rights of the world’s estimated 650 million persons with disabilities are guaranteed and protected.It asserts the rights to education, health, work, adequate living conditions, freedom of movement, freedom from exploitation and equal recognition before the law for persons with disabilities. 16 March 2010The Paralympic Games currently under way in Vancouver, Canada, highlight the contribution sport can make in promoting the inclusion and well-being of people with disabilities, a senior United Nations official said today.
by News Staff Posted Apr 26, 2012 9:58 am MDT German carmaker Volkswagen’s beats market expectations as sales rise 26 per cent AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FRANKFURT – Sharply higher sales in the United States and a stronger foothold in Russia helped German carmaker Volkswagen AG beat market expectations for its first-quarter profits.Net profit rose to â‚¬3.19 billion ($4.2 billion) from â‚¬1.71 billion in the same period the year before, the company said Thursday. Earnings were boosted by a much bigger profit on financial items that reflected the revaluing of share options related to the company’s attempt to fully integrate sports car maker Porsche and its hedging against currency fluctuations.Operating earnings â€” which exclude such financial complexities â€” rose 10 per cent to â‚¬3.2 billion, ahead of market analysts’ expectations for â‚¬2.6 billion. Revenues were up 26 per cent to â‚¬47.33 billion on the year.Volkswagen’s luxury brand Audi saw stronger sales of its A6, A7 Sportback and A8 models, which contributed to an increase in the division’s operating earning of 26 per cent to â‚¬1.4 billion. Volkswagen’s brands include mass-market nameplates SEAT and Skoda as well as luxury businesses Bentley, Bugatti and Lamborghini as well as commercial vehicle makers Scania and MAN.Volkswagen shares shot higher, trading up 6.2 per cent at â‚¬122.70.The carmaker’s business boomed in a stronger United States economy, where sales rose 34 per cent, and in Russia, where sales climbed 77 per cent to 66,000 vehicles.CEO Martin Winterkorn confirmed the company’s bullish outlook for rising sales in 2012 despite the uncertainties stemming from Europe’s persistent sovereign debt crisis. “The results show that we are on the right road,” he said in a statement.The company’s financial results swung from a loss of â‚¬0.7 billion last year to a plus of â‚¬1.1 billion, lifted by the value of currency hedging instruments, the Porsche options and Chinese joint ventures.Volkswagen is trying to complete a merger with Porsche but integrating the sports car maker has been held up by legal issues. Share options held as part of the deal have meanwhile continued to affect the companies finances as their value is restated. Options worth â‚¬8.409 billion at the end of the year were revalued to â‚¬8.990 billion, the company said.
Back to school: How mature students can fund continuing education VANCOUVER – When Kear Porttris decided to pursue a university degree in 2010, he had to contend with responsibilities that don’t cross the minds of many freshman straight out of high school, including paying his mortgage and feeding his daughter.Mature students who return to education have much more complex financial lives, experts say, and determining how to pay thousands of dollars in tuition, books and other expenses can be tricky. But with proper planning, a university degree can offer a good return on investment.Money coach Melanie Buffel, who returned to complete her MBA as a single mom more than 20 years after finishing her last degree, says adults must plan carefully before returning to school as a mature student.“There’s a lot of homework,” says Buffel, who works with Money Coaches Canada.She suggests prospective students should first add up all the costs of school, including easily overlooked items such as additional childcare and transportation.With a clear picture of how much money is needed, the next step is to determine whether to work full-time, part-time or not at all during their studies.Continuing to work can be good for more than just a paycheque, she says.Some employers will help fund continuing studies — usually so long as the worker remains with the company for a set period of time after graduation — and may continue to provide various health and life insurance benefits.After estimating how much they’ll earn while in school, she says, students can determine other sources that can be tapped to make up for any shortfall.Porttris, now a 32-year-old master’s student at the University of Victoria, says he applied for student loans and took a reduced course load at first so he could still work part time.He has since learned it’s key to apply for scholarships and grants, including some specifically designated for older students.Adding a couple thousand dollars that way during an academic year can mean spending fewer hours at a job, he says.“You can work less and focus on the more important things,” he says, such as studying or spending time with family.Once a mature student is enrolled, they can take advantage of tuition tax credits to reduce their tax burden, says Buffel. Depending on their situation, they can transfer some of that credit to a spouse or save it for future years when they may be earning more money.One of the most important considerations for prospective students is determining whether their new degree will boost their future earning potential enough to overcome the up-front cost of heading back to school, says Buffel.Henry Coll, 42, worked as a delivery truck driver when his wife encouraged him to return to school.He now has a undergraduate degree under his belt and is pursuing his master’s in applied sciences at the University of Victoria.He says he doesn’t expect to get a job as soon as he is done his graduate studies that will “magically pay for everything,” but believes he’ll still be better off than when he was driving trucks.“It’ll take time, but I will be on top.”Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter. by Aleksandra Sagan, The Canadian Press Posted Aug 17, 2017 8:52 am MDT Last Updated Aug 18, 2017 at 10:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Money coach Melanie Buffel, who returned to school to complete her MBA as a single mom more than 20 years after finishing her last degree, poses for a photograph in Vancouver, B.C., on Wednesday August 16, 2017.

“Why? Turns out they haven’t got one. I’m struggling to find the right word to describe the depths of ineptitude being encountered here.”Head of customer experience at Arriva, Barry Lloyd said: “Mr Fletcher remains a valued member of our Passenger Panel and we will continue to work closely with him and Google to resolve the matter.” A train company has threatened to sue a member of the public after he set up a parody Facebook account to mock the firm’s frequently late-running trains.Arriva Trains Wales warned Steven Fletcher he could face legal action over the account called ‘Arriva Trains Fails – Wales’.The page, which was set up in 2014, pointed out late-running trains and other mistakes, and has amassed more than 4,000 likes.Fletcher is a member of Arriva’s Passenger Panel, a “consumer forum that represents the demographic of customers that use our network”.The panel’s profile page describes Fletcher as a “regular commuter on the Cardiff Valley network” who “urrently runs a website with more than 3500 active train-using members, from a variety of different backgrounds, showing his keen interest in helping improve train services.”He has been proactive and enthusiastic when providing us with information to improve our service”.However, Arriva bosses were left red-faced after a simple Google search for their company returned Fletcher’s logo rather than their own, and has threatened him with legal action if he doesn’t remove it.Mr Fletcher, of Cardiff, posted from the parody account page: “So, the #Logogate latest:”I’ve politely told ATW that I won’t be removing the below image as I don’t feel it infringes their trademark for Arriva Trains Wales.

The flyover’s due to be completed in May of next year, and is being constructed in a number of phases.The upgrade will mean the removal of the last set of traffic lights on the motorway, and significantly reduce travel times for motorists using the N7.Read: Tolls could be lifted at the East Link, but council bosses say they should stay IF YOU HAPPEN to be one of the 80,000 or so drivers who pass through Dublin’s Newlands Cross junction every day, you’d be best advised to leave extra time for your journey over the next few weeks.A new flyover’s being constructed to ease traffic on what’s currently a major bottleneck on the N7 — as part of that process lanes are being shifted on the existing junction, and drivers are being told to expect delays as that’s carried out.From 9pm this evening, mainline traffic heading out of the city from the M50/Red Cow will be shifted to the left onto three newly constructed temporary lanes. That’s being done so lanes heading the other direction can also be shifted in the coming weeks, making space for the flyover to be built.The National Roads Authority says commuters can expect longer wait times at the junction both eastbound and westbound for the moment:This anticipated traffic delay is expected due to the extension/widening of the interchange at Newlands Cross, as a result, requiring more time at the traffic lights to allow for traffic to turn onto and off of Fonthill and Belgard Roads.It therefore requires longer waiting times at the traffic lights affecting the mainline traffic heading to and from Dublin.

Manchester United have reportedly agreed on personal terms with Juventus’ Alex Sandro for a move this summer, claims 101GreatGoalsThe Red Devils are in the market for a new left-back following Luke Shaw’s disappointing spell at Old Trafford.The England international is expected to leave United this summer after falling out of favour with head coach Jose Mourinho, who had instead opted to use Ashley Young in Shaw’s favoured left-back position last season.Maguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…But now the Portuguese coach is keen to sign a specialist left-back for next season and has listed Sandro as an ideal replacement for Shaw.The 27-year-old has established himself as one the best in the world in that position in recent years at Juventus and would make a good fit to Mourinho’s playing style at United.But Juventus are demanding £53m for their highly-rated Brazilian, which may prove to be a major stumbling block for United – despite having already agreed on personal terms with Sandro.
A state ballot initiative that would privatize liquor sales leads by a significant margin in the new statewide Washington Poll, but one on project-specific road tolls is too close to call.The poll also indicated that in the 2012 governor’s race, Attorney General Rob McKenna, a Republican, leads Rep. Jay Inslee, a Democrat, by 6 percentage points among all voters and by 16 among independents. In the presidential race, Barack Obama is far ahead of Republican rivals.If Initiative 1183 is passed in the Nov. 8 election, state liquor stores would be closed and assets auctioned off. Private parties would be licensed to sell and distribute liquor, set license fees, regulate licenses and change regulation of wine distribution. In the poll, 50 percent of voters favored the initiative; 43 percent opposed it.Initiative 1125 would prohibit use of motor vehicle fund revenues and vehicle toll revenues for non-transportational purposes. It would also require the Legislature to set road and bridge tolls and make them project specific.The survey showed voters evenly divided: 41.4 percent in favor of the measure, 40 percent against, with 19 percent undecided.Almost 45 percent of voters favored McKenna in next year’s gubernatorial race while almost 38 percent favored Inslee. In the presidential race, voters said they would favor Obama over former Gov. Mitt Romney, 50 percent to 41 percent, and would favor Obama over Texas Gov. Rick Perry, 54 percent to 41 percent.
Beth Cooper helped her 9-year-old son, Jace, open his own bank account, where he stashes half his $4-a-week allowance. He was thrilled when the balance reached $100.“Mom,” he said, “surely I can pay for college now.”If only.The price of tuition, even at state schools, has been rising faster than middle-class families’ earnings. According to a recent report by the student loan company Sallie Mae, families draw on grants, scholarships, paychecks and savings, but still end up borrowing heavily for college. The price tag is so daunting that half of families don’t save for their children’s college at all.Who can blame them? They’re wary of the stock market after the 2007 financial crash, but interest rates on CDs and savings accounts are almost nil. And even the investment that was supposed to be a sure thing — Washington’s Guaranteed Education Tuition plan — gets called into question every legislative session.“For us, bills have to get paid first,” said Ridgefield resident Rebecca Stapper, mother of two. “It’s very difficult to save for college when you’re lucky if you get 1 percent in a savings account.”Tuition at state universities, on the other hand, has risen between 6.6 percent and 19 percent a year over the past decade, according to the state actuary. Attending the University of Washington will cost an estimated $27,587 next academic year, a figure that includes tuition, fees, room and board, and all associated expenses. Click image to enlarge
A longtime Anchorage homicide detective, Slawomir Markiewicz, recently retired after three decades on the force. As detective sergeant of the Anchorage Police Department’s homicide unit, Markowitz was a familiar face and voice in news stories about Anchorage murders.Now-retired Sgt. Markowitz spoke to Alaska Public Media’s Casey Grove.Retired Anchorage homicide detective, Sgt. Slawomir Markiewicz (Anchorage Police Department photo)Grove: If you don’t mind, I know it’s an interesting story, can you tell me how you got to the U.S., and how you ended up in Alaska?Markiewicz: So I’m originally from Poland, and when I was growing up in Poland, actually, my dad was a police officer and that was kind of my dream at the time, that’s what I thought I would do. But then when I went to high school, became a teenager, became more aware of the Communist system in which I was living, and basically in the Communist Bloc, I realized that that I would never want to work for the communist government. There were demonstrations, that was martial law. A lot of people were immigrating. People were leaving Poland escaping the Communist repression by the thousands and then tens of thousands. So myself and my wife we were able to get on a trip to Rome to see the pope, and we went to Italy and we never came back. Once in Italy, we asked for political asylum, we were put in a refugee camp near Rome and then we got immigration visas and we came here in 1985. The way we ended up in Alaska was that we had some friends here who were sponsoring us, so they were our sponsors and they basically picked us up at the airport and took care of us while we were still, you know, learning how to function here. The day when we arrived here was actually one of the happiest days in our life.Grove: So you said that your dad had been a cop and is that sort of the driving force to getting here and realizing that dream?Markiewicz: Maybe one word about my dad, that he was just a street cop walking his beat. Certainly, it was the communist government, but he was keeping the peace and protecting citizens. But, yes, when I came here, I had an engineering degree and I had friends that went to work to like for the oil industry. I, kind of, from the beginning started looking into getting into law enforcement and when an opportunity arose I took the tests for APD in 1987, and I passed them and eventually I was hired.Grove: When did you start deciding you wanted to pursue being a homicide detective?Markiewicz: As it happens in life, there are, sometimes it’s just a coincidence or opportunity or doing the right thing at the right time. I was in detectives, actually, was approached by the sergeant and asked if I wanted to come to the homicide unit. At that time, I had two small children, and my wife sometimes had to travel on business, so I just didn’t see that as a possibility, because how could I go out in the middle of the night to go investigate a homicide if there are two little kids at home and there’s no no one else to take care of them? So I had to wait, and then the opportunity arouse my when my kids were 12 years old. There was an opening for the sergeant position in the homicide unit. At that time, I was already a sergeant, and I got the position and that was in 2005 and I remained there until my retirement.Grove: What do you think is the biggest misconception that people have, about the job that you had for such a long time?Markiewicz: I think the challenge that we saw and other detectives saw, and the misconception, is seen like in the jury room, sometimes maybe the jurors expected too much. Not all of them, but there was a time when everyone believed in DNA magic, if there is DNA, you know, you have the case solved. If there’s no DNA, you know, you can’t prove it. But it’s not as easy as that, you know, 90 percent of the time it’s good detective work. It’s not actually the technology or the crime scene that you see on TV, a lot of times, that solves it. It’s actually hard work, talking to people, interviews, looking for inconsistencies. Sometimes you get like “golden nuggets,” we call them, some nice pieces of evidence that will make the case stronger. But it’s still the detective that puts it all together. I imagine you’re not going to miss getting woken up in the middle of the night to go to a crime scene, but is there anything about it that you are going to miss you think? I have always been proud of working for APD. It’s been an honor and privilege to be a member of APD and I will just miss being around so many talented and smart people, and I will miss serving the wonderful people of Anchorage.

The disappointments for those looking forward to purchasing a 3DS keep coming. Last week we found out the battery life of the 3DS while playing 3DS-specific games may be as short as 3 hours. Now it turns out Nintendo has decided to region lock the new handheld.Although console owners have been suffering region locking for decades, until recently Nintendo had decided against such a lock on its portable hardware. What it meant was if a game got released in Japan, but there were no signs of a Western release, you could use a site like Play-Asia and import it. The game would play on your Western handheld without any issues.With the advent of the DSi and DSi XL Nintendo started using region locking, and that now looks set to continue. If you want to play a Japanese 3DS game on a U.S. 3DS–you can’t unless some workaround becomes apparent. The only alternative is to buy a Japanese 3DS. The same is true if you own a European 3DS and want to play a U.S. or Japanese cart.Read more at Eurogamer.net and NeoGAFMatthew’s OpinionAs a gamer I hate region locking. It’s been less of an issue on the most recent round of consoles due to simultaneous releases, but it used to be the case that a lot of games just didn’t make it to Western markets, or they did a year later than they should have (especially in Europe). Lots of gamers ended up buying other-region consoles just to be able to play specific games. Importing a game cost more, but allowed you to play games sooner, and that was kind of special.Nintendo’s handhelds were different, and importing games for those platforms was an established market. Why Nintendo chose to block it I don’t know, but it probably comes down to wanting to control the markets and maximize the prices paid per region for the same game.Ultimately this will just push hackers to bypass the 3DS’ security as quickly as possible and make it region free. This decision will backfire and Nintendo will end up fighting more battles with keeping firmware up-to-date where as they could have been profiting from sales of games in one region being shipped to another.It’s also worth pointing out that region locking on the DSi didn’t cause a major uproar because it only applied to DSi-only games of which there aren’t many. For the 3DS it will be all 3DS games so will have a much greater impact.
Kolkata: The Gurusaday museum, set up in the year 1961, highlights the exquisite collection of Bengal’s rare art and culture. There are 2325 specimens collected by Gurusaday Dutt, an ICS officer, during his tenure as a district magistrate and collector between 1929 and 1939. An agreement was signed between the President of India and representatives of Gurusaday Dutta Folk Arts Society in 1984 over the maintenance of the museum. Dutt, who had travelled to the West, thought that the art and folk of rural Bengal should be showcased to attract people from across the world. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsThe museum situated on Diamond Harbour Road off Joka is a treasure of folk art and culture. The museum provides an enormous collection of different kinds of kantha stitch that have been a part of Bengali tradition for decades. As one enters the museum, there are mesmerizing kantha stitch items towards the left and central part of the Museum. There is the sujni kantha bed sheet with a central lotus surrounded by flowers, fish, elephants, tigers and birds, all stitched in geometric designs. There is also a huge collection of different designs of beytan kantha, durjani kantha and the arshilata kantha, which is used for covering mirrors, to protect it from dirt. The last one is the rumal kantha, which was and is still used in designing handkerchiefs. There are paintings from the 19th century undivided Bengal, showcasing various mythological characters like Labh-Kush, Radha-Krishna and Dissembling Vaishnava. There is a section of wooden masks with the face of Asuras.The last gallery is a circular frame, with the upper frame containing terracotta plaques of temples, square paintings and wooden dolls. The lower frame has moulds for mango paste or aamshotto, sweet-meat mould, jewelleries made of paddy and shells, old musical instruments made in Birbhum, which include Dhol and Damaru.

With the evolution of both technology and performance, this new guideline addresses these changes and aims to provide new guidance to enhance imaging quality and empower echocardiographers to provide the best possible care for their patients.Filled with original illustrations, instructive videos, and detailed instructions to provide an effective resource for all echocardiographers, this document gives a comprehensive view of scanning techniques and protocols for today’s cardiovascular imaging.The guideline, featured in the January 2019 issue of the Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography (JASE), has gained wide support from the echocardiography community and has been endorsed by 22 cardiology/echocardiography societies around the world. The writing group for this important paper was co-chaired by Peter Rahko, M.D., FASE, director of echocardiography at the University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison, Wis., and Carol Mitchell, Ph.D., RDMS, RDCS, RVT, RT(R), ACS, FASE, assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison, Wis.Rahko commented, “Echocardiography, specifically TTE, is the most versatile imaging modality for diagnosing cardiovascular disease, and the past decade has seen its use expand into many new clinical areas. To ensure that patients continue to receive the best care, we felt it was essential to reexamine what constitutes a contemporary comprehensive TTE.”The document includes an abundance of figures and illustrated tables, plus over 100 videos, in an effort to thoroughly define and demonstrate the various scanning maneuvers and image optimization techniques recommended for sonographers when performing an exam. “As the writing committee surveyed available resources, we found a lack of updated information, as well as a lack of consensus, in how to define all the different scanning techniques,” noted Mitchell. “Our hope is that this will provide a valuable resource for students and new sonographers, and that echo labs will use these new recommendations as a starting point to design comprehensive protocols that best fit the patient populations they serve.”In conjunction with the publication of the guideline document, Rahko and Mitchell will conduct a live webinar, including a question and answer section, on Jan. 31, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The webinar is available for free to all ASE members and open to all other clinicians for just $25; registration for the webinar is open now on ASEUniversity.org. This webinar is the second one focused on this guideline; the first webinar was hosted in December and a recording is available online to facilitate education for those who could not attend the live webcast.The full guideline document is available on the Journal of American Society of Echocardiography (JASE) website (OnlineJASE.com).
