Eine schnelle und genaue COVID-19-Diagnose kann die Übertragung unterbrechen, das klinische Management unterstützen und die richtige Zuweisung von Ressourcen für die Isolierung erleichtern. Das in Europa CE-IVD-zertifizierte LooK SPOT KI-COVID-19-Antigen-Schnelltestsystem ist ein Smartphone-basiertes Diagnosegerät mit Seitenstrom-Immunoassay für den qualitativen Nachweis des Nukleokapsidproteins von SARS-CoV-2 in Nasenabstrichen. Das LooK SPOT-Ökosystem auf der Basis künstlicher Intelligenz revolutioniert die medizinische Diagnostik. Es ermöglicht die frühzeitige Erkennung einer Erkrankung und liefert konsistente und genaue Ergebnisse. Für den LooK SPOT KI-COVID-19-Antigen-Schnelltest wird ein Abstrich aus dem Nasenloch in ca. 1 Zoll Tiefe entnommen. Mit der Technologie der künstlichen Intelligenz liefert der Test zum Nachweis des SARS-CoV-2-Virus innerhalb von 5 bis 8 Minuten Echtzeitergebnisse mit einer Sensitivität von 97,4 % und einer Spezifität von 98,3 %. Dieses Antigen-Testkit gehört zu den führenden Kits auf dem Markt. Der LooK SPOT COVID-19-Antigen-Schnelltest kann auch die neue Variante des SARS-CoV-2-Virus nachweisen, die erstmals in Großbritannien und Südafrika identifiziert wurde. „Der KI-Algorithmus von LooK SPOT weist eine hohe Genauigkeit auf und kann im Gegensatz zum menschlichen Auge das Farbsignal auf den Tests auch in schwach positiven Fällen erkennen. Dadurch werden menschliche Fehler und manuelle Prozesse, wie sie bei anderen auf dem Markt erhältlichen Antigentests auftreten, vermieden. Zudem reduziert LooK SPOT die kognitive Belastung des medizinischen Personals, indem es genaue Testergebnisse in einem leicht zu lesenden Format liefert. LooK SPOT wurde mit einem taktischen Vorteil für den Kampf gegen COVID-19 entwickelt“, sagte Diego Lai. Mitbegründer und CEO von Laipac. Um die LooK COVID-19-Antigenkassette vor dem Test zu scannen, kann die LooK PASS-App von den Apple- oder Google-Stores heruntergeladen werden. Die Testergebnisse erhält man innerhalb von 5 bis 8 Minuten auf dem Smartphone. Negative Testergebnisse generieren einen QR-Code auf der App, der als Passierschein zum Betreten einer Einrichtung, zum Besuch von Veranstaltungen, Versammlungen oder zur Nutzung öffentlicher Verkehrsmittel verwendet werden kann. Über Pure Health kann LooK SPOT eine vollständige API-Integration mit mehreren IT-Anwendungen und Reiseanwendungen für Echtzeit-Berichterstattung bereitstellen. Der Antigen-Schnelltest auf der Basis künstlicher Intelligenz wird auf der IDEX 2021 Abu Dhabi vom 21. bis 25. Februar am LooK SPOT Stand 03-C22 vorgestellt. *Quelle: AETOSWire Die Ausgangssprache, in der der Originaltext veröffentlicht wird, ist die offizielle und autorisierte Version.

Ocean City Realtors Helping Needy Families With Winter Clothing Drive

first_imgOcean City Board of Realtors members Gloria Votta and Ken Cooper arrange the donations during the 2018 clothing drive. By Maddy VitaleStephen Hoffman walked into the Ocean City Board of Realtors office, said hello and turned to enter a room while toting a stuffed garbage bag.He knelt down, opened the bag and pulled out blankets, coats and other items that he placed on tables. “They’re not all from me. They are from my office,” said the sales representative with the real estate company, Marr Agency, in Ocean City.Then Hoffman said with a chuckle, “I’m just the delivery guy.”The items were part of the “Warmth for Winter Coat, Blanket & Boot Drive” in which the realtors and other members of the community collect items for the needy. The clothing drive is organized by the Board of Realtors in cooperation with the Clothes Closet of the Ocean City Ecumenical Council, an association of local churches that gives families in need some assistance. Stephen Hoffman, a sales rep with the Marr Agency in Ocean City, brings a bag of clothing he and his co-workers donated.The Ocean City Board of Realtors has been working along with the Ecumenical Council on the clothing drive for more than a decade, organizers said.“We are the people who are out in the community and we see what is happening,” said Ken Cooper, president of the Ocean City Board of Realtors. “A lot of us make a good living. We should give back. If you are not using something and it is just in your closet, donate it.”Cooper said there is plenty of time to donate clothing and other items. The clothing drive runs through the week after Thanksgiving, but the realtors will still accept donations through December. Then they will transport the items to the Ecumenical Clothes Closet in Ocean City.Cooper said people in need should never feel bad about accepting free clothing or other necessities.“If there are people in the community who have a need, they should come in. Some people are too embarrassed or fear the unknown,” he explained. “We do this because we want people to have warm clothes. We want to help others.”In just a couple of weeks, the conference room at the Board of Realtors filled up with all styles and sizes of coats and boots. The clothing was neatly arranged or folded on the tables. The boots, bedding and socks were stowed underneath in bags.Some garments still had the price tags on them. Clothing by Calvin Klein and Jones of New York and other brand names, lined the tables.Ken Cooper arranges jackets and sweatshirts, including some that still have the price tags on them.Gloria Votta, an agent for Re/Max Realty Group and chairwoman of the Community Services Committee for the Board of Realtors, helped start the drive.Like Cooper, she helps the needy because she wants to give back to the community.As a real estate agent, she has seen many different circumstances, she emphasized.“Not everyone sees this need in Ocean City,” Votta said. “You have to be out and about in the community to see the need. It is there.”She recalled an instance last year in which a man came in looking for size 9 sneakers.“We didn’t have any sneakers,” she said. The man left and in walked another man with a bag of sneakers he wanted to donate, Votta explained.“There was a size 9. We contacted the man and delivered the sneakers to him,” she said with a smile.The sign on the front door at the Ocean City Board of Realtors welcomes the community to donate to the clothing drive.She said there are many other touching stories and all of them are proof that the most important and rewarding thing to do is to help others.“Anyone who is a resident in Ocean City can go to the Ecumenical Clothes Closet and pick up their clothing,” Votta said.She added that the number of items a person may take depends on their needs. She said the Ecumenical Council handles that aspect of the clothing drive.Votta said this year, like last year, they are light on donations of children’s boots and men’s clothing.“We get a lot of women’s clothing,” Votta said. “If you go shopping on Black Friday, we are really in need of children’s snow boots.”Cash donations are also accepted. Votta said cash donations are used for shopping trips to purchase clothes for the needy, as requested by the Ecumenical Clothes Closet.Clothing donations may be dropped off at the Board of Realtors office at 405 22nd Street. To arrange for clothing pickups, people may call the office at (609) 399-0128. The office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.Clothes are given out at the Ecumenical Clothes Closet at Fifth Street and West Avenue. The hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday and Wednesday and 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Friday. Any leftover clothing is donated to the Atlantic City Rescue Mission, a homeless shelter.The Ocean City Board of Realtors is located at 405 22nd Street.last_img read more

Brazilian Marine Corps Commandant Visit Boosts Cooperation with U.S.

first_img Winning the seat of host for the Summer Olympics in 2016, meant not only that it was the first time that a South American nation was chosen for this post, but also that the South American giant has a huge responsibility in the next four years. After all, in its preparations to also host the World Cup in 2014, millions of people from around the world will flock to the Samba nation to witness these events and their security will be heavily scrutinized. Aware of this, Brazil’s current government put forth a national defense strategy to modernize and expand its forces, as it is expected that the Brazilian Armed Forces will play a vital role during the country’s preparation to host the events. In order to forge stronger partnerships with a longstanding collaborator, Brazil and the United States have been looking to strengthen their partnerships with each other in many areas, including equipment, technology and security cooperation. On June 23rd, Admiral Marco Antonio Corrêa Guimarães, Brazilian Marine Corps Commandant, visited the United States for a weeklong journey that included scheduled visits at key locations, such as the U.S. Marine Corps Forces South (MARFORSOUTH) headquarters, within the U.S. Southern Command in Miami, Florida; the Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany, Georgia; the II Marine Expeditionary Force in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina; the Marine Corps Combat Development Command (MCCDC), in Quantico, Virginia; and the U.S. Marine Corps headquarters and Marine Barracks, 8th & I, in Washington, D.C. Major General John Croley, Commander of MARFORSOUTH, extended the invitation to Adm. Guimarães to facilitate the visits around the country’s East Coast. Among them, the amphibious vehicle refurbishment and maintenance line in Albany, Georgia, where the admiral was able to see the capabilities of these vehicles. Highlights of this visit included aerial tours of Camp Lejeune aboard the UH-1Y “Venom” and MV-22 “Osprey” aircrafts; in depth discussions of amphibious vehicles maintenance and operations and the hosting of the traditional Sunset Evening Parade at Marine Barracks, 8th & I in Washington, D.C. “Brasil is a strategic partner in the region and the Brazilian Marine Corps has been an important contributor to international security as evidenced by their support for peacekeeping operations in Haiti and Lebanon,” said Maj Gen Croley. This visit strengthened ties between the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) and the Brazilian Marine Corps, and supported an expansion of current security cooperation engagements with the South American nation. “The visit represented the will to [continue to] build stronger bonds and military cooperation between Brazil and the United States, to benefit both institutions and their countries, in addition to the withstanding positive relationship between the two already,” said Brazilian Navy Commander Alexandre Silva, who accompanied Adm. Guimarães during his trip. By Dialogo July 26, 2012last_img read more

3 tips to maximize your local content strategy

first_img 18SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr We all know that companies spend millions of dollars each year on large corporate branding and marketing campaigns. Case in point: a single 30-second TV spot during this year’s Super Bowl costs upwards of $5 million alone – something to keep in mind on game day. The investment is often required to maintain brand awareness across a wide consumer audience, especially as attention spans become shorter than ever before and the media landscape becomes increasingly fragmented.But what works for generating corporate brand awareness often isn’t nearly as effective at the local grassroots level. That’s especially true when it comes to content marketing, where a one-size-fits-all approach is destined to be ineffective in the long term.Why? In reaction to the overwhelming amount of content available out there, consumers have had to focus their attention on content that is personally relevant and relatable, answers a question or need, or uncovers something they’re interested in. Everything else – for better or worse – simply gets tuned out.As marketers, we must ask ourselves: how can we take the content that our firm is already producing and invest it at the regional level? How can we make it relevant for the local markets that our sales reps are doing business in and where, ultimately, purchase transactions are made? continue reading »last_img read more

Attract top talent with student loan repayment programs

first_img continue reading » As the cost of continuing education continues to rise and more and more students enter the job market with crippling debt, companies that offer repayment benefits are standing out in the competitive job market, especially among Millennials.According to the Center for American Progress, “About 43 million adult Americans—roughly one-sixth of the U.S. population older than age 18—currently carry a federal student loan and owe a combined total of $1.5 trillion in federal student loan debt.” Many Millennials are entering the job market with over $30,000 in student loans, and while not every borrower is overwhelmed by this debt, it does weigh heavily on their overall financial health and future.Pew Research reports, “More than one-in-three American labor force participants (35%) are Millennials, making them the largest generation in the U.S. labor force.” Despite this, less than 5% of organizations offer student-debt repayment assistance. This means that most businesses are missing out on a prime recruitment and retention strategy for attracting top new talent. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the value of offering student loan repayment options to your employees, and give you tips for incorporating this strategy into your employee benefits program.

‘He could’ve spread the virus’: Medan Police investigate cop who allegedly spat at driver

first_imgThe Medan Police in North Sumatra are investigating an incident involving a police officer identified only as RS, a video of whom circulating on social media since last Saturday appears to depict him spitting at a car driver.Medan Police chief Sr. Comr. Jhonny Eddizon Isir immediately expressed his regret over the incident after watching the video.“It is such a shame. RS’ act has tarnished our institution amid the police’s efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19. He could’ve spread the virus by spitting at the car driver,” Jhonny said last Saturday.The recording was made during an activity that seemed to be a street operation, after the driver allegedly refused to pay hush money to the cop.Read also: National Police detail tightened measures to combat COVID-19, support government policyThe video was recorded by another driver, who was also stopped by RS. The driver who recorded the video claimed that his driving license was detained and later returned by a colleague of RS, identified as WI, who is not a police officer, after the driver handed over Rp 10,000 (US 65 cents). Jhonny apologized to the public for the dishonorable action conducted by RS. He said he would request a transfer for RS.“We suggest that he no longer work at the Medan Police,” he said.North Sumatra Police spokesperson Tatan Dirsan Atmaja said Sunday if proven guilty, RS would be put on disciplinary trial and given sanctions by the Medan Police’s division of internal affairs.“The North Sumatra Police head, Insp. Gen Martuani Sormin Siregar, would not hesitate to punish police officers whose behavior has unsettled the public,” he added. (aly)Topics :last_img read more

Carragher alarmed at Suarez stance

first_img Suarez claims the club agreed to let him leave Anfield if Liverpool failed to qualify for this season’s Champions League. The club refute that, and while Carragher claims the Uruguayan is “too good” for both Liverpool and Arsenal, and better suited to the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich, he expects greater loyalty from the striker. While Carragher spent his entire career with Liverpool, before retiring in May, Michael Owen moved away to join Real Madrid in 2004. And Owen, who also retired at the end of last season, can understand why Suarez, at the age of 26, would want to leave to join a club playing at the highest level in Europe. Owen told the Daily Telegraph: “People have this stereotypical view of a footballer that he’s just greedy, no loyalty, but you can bet your bottom dollar that if Suarez wasn’t as good as he was then Liverpool wouldn’t have stood by him [during his misdemeanours]. Of course, you have to bear in mind the things people have done for you along the way, and have some gratitude, but you have one shot. “Luis has not come through the ranks. He doesn’t have a huge affinity with Liverpool but the fans have a huge affinity with him and expect that to be reciprocated. But he wants to go and be at the best club he can. “This is where I can’t quite understand it. If it’s Arsenal [that is] the only option for him, I can’t really understand why he would want to leave given the way the Liverpool fans feel about him and the team is virtually built about him. If Real Madrid came in for him, I could certainly understand that.” Jamie Carragher believes it is “laughable” for his old Liverpool team-mate Luis Suarez to be complaining about the club’s reluctance to sell him. Press Association Carragher said in his Daily Mail column: “It didn’t surprise me that Brendan Rodgers has made him train on his own. I never thought Luis would down tools in the way Fernando Torres did when he wanted to leave Liverpool – his attitude over the final 18 months became progressively worse – but now Suarez has given me reason to think again. “To see it come to this is very dispiriting. A lot of good people have stood by Luis since he joined the club. Rodgers and Kenny Dalglish could not have done more for him. In the darkest times, we wore T-shirts to show we were standing alongside him, even if it was ill-advised. “So it is laughable to hear he is unhappy with Liverpool for not letting him join Arsenal.” Suarez was banned by the Football Association for racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra, and again towards the end of last season for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic. Despite those offences, Liverpool still want him at the club, however Carragher claims he has seen at close quarters a change in Suarez’s attitude to life at Liverpool. He said: “I took part in a training session at Melwood before Steven Gerrard’s testimonial last Saturday and I was alarmed by the Luis Suarez with whom I was sharing a pitch. “From his first day at Liverpool, I had been used to seeing a warrior who loved his football and charged around with great enthusiasm. “On this occasion, however, his attitude was completely different. He didn’t want the ball and had no interest in getting involved. He stood on the periphery, with shoulders slumped.” last_img read more

Bawburgh crowned GolfMark Club of the Year 2012

first_img22 Feb 2012 Bawburgh crowned GolfMark Club of the Year 2012 Bawburgh Golf Club, near Norwich, has won the GolfMark Club of the Year Award 2012, supported by COBRA-PUMA GOLF. The award, introduced four years ago by the English Golf Union and English Women’s Golf Association, recognises clubs which make an outstanding and innovative contribution to junior and beginner golf. Bawburgh’s success was announced at the England Golf Partnership’s County Golf Development Conference on 21st February at Woodhall Spa. The conference also applauded the two runners-up, Marriott Tudor Park Golf & Country Club in Kent and Addington Court Golf Club in Surrey. Robert Barnard, managing director of Bawburgh Golf Club, said: “I am over the moon, the competition was very strong and we didn’t expect to win. This is just great for the club and all our team – and now we’ve got to keep going forward.” Bawburgh was first awarded GolfMark in October 2007 and now has High Achiever status. It aims to offer opportunities to all, from novice to regular golfer, and recently opened a new driving range, the Norwich Family Golf Centre, which completed a £2million investment in the complex. Over the past three years the club has made alterations and improvements to its 18-hole course, built a new par-36 nine-hole course and now completed the new centre, which includes a golf shop, 24-bay driving range, café and sports bar. The team at the club, led by Robert and his wife Jo, demonstrate a willingness to adapt and try new ideas, with awareness of what their customers want. They offer flexible membership packages to suit all types of golfer, a relaxed environment for non-members and members alike and a range of coaching opportunities, led by PGA professionals Mark Spooner and Peter Bower. The club also has a strong working relationship with the Norfolk County Golf Partnership and links with the sports academy at Easton College. Presenting the award, Ian Barrett, EMEA Marketing Manager for COBRA PUMA GOLF, said: “COBRA PUMA GOLF is delighted to help recognise the outstanding efforts of those who have worked so hard at Bawburgh Golf Club to win this award. “Our approach to golf is about making the game more inclusive and fun for golfers of all abilities, attitudes and styles and Bawburgh echo this by enhancing golf participation within their community. COBRA PUMA GOLF is proud to continue its support for GolfMark as a leader in the development of beginner-friendly facilities.” COBRA-PUMA GOLF is supporting the GolfMark award scheme for the second year running, with prizes for the Club of the Year award and quarterly and annual prize draws. Richard Flint, Golf Development Manager for the English Golf Union and English Women’s Golf Association, commented “We are delighted that COBRA PUMA GOLF continues to support this prestigious award which highlights very proactive, professionally run golf clubs, such as Bawburgh. “Golf clubs have to be more creative and business-focused to meet the changing golfing landscape and GolfMark can support them in developing structures and promoting their facilities and opportunities.” Contenders for the award were nominated by their County Golf Partnerships and a shortlist was drawn up by a panel of England Golf Partnership (EGP) representatives. Individual visits were made to the final three clubs to determine the winner. Any affiliated golf club can apply to work through the GolfMark process and achieve the accreditation, by visiting www.golfmark.org There are currently 535 golf clubs with GolfMark and a further 561 working towards accreditation. GolfMark is an EGP initiative which is part of its ‘Whole Sport Plan’ for golf and an integral part of its vision to ‘Grow the Game’.
