The long-term future of British bus maker, Optare plc, has been secured thanks to a refinancing agreement announced today that will see Indian commercial vehicle manufacturing company, Ashok Leyland, increase its holding in Optare to 75.1%, allowing the company to build upon its position as top five bus manufacturers in the world. Ashok Leyland is the flagship company in India of the Hinduja Group and the refinancing and guarantee of support will provide a substantially improved working capital facility for the business – safeguarding the existing contractual and statutory employment and pension rights of all Optare employees.CEO, Jim Sumner, said “This is great news for Optare’s customers, employees and suppliers by securing stability and the long-term future of the business. The re-banking of Optare represents a critical milestone in the turnaround of the business and allows us to now complete the final phase of the three year plan which commenced in June 2009.”He added, “In addition, our recent move to a new factory in Sherburn gives us the capacity and modern assembly facilities necessary to capitalise on the additional sales our deeper partnership with Ashok Leyland will undoubtedly deliver.”John Fickling, Chairman of Optare said, “Given the global economic challenges we all face, this is a game changing deal for Optare. It ensures that we can grow and prosper in an ever changing and demanding market place”.Vinod Dasari, Managing Director, Ashok Leyland observed, “We see this as an important element in realizing our vision of being among the top five bus manufacturers globally. Through leveraging the synergies of the two companies, we are confident that going forward we will be able to accelerate technology sharing, develop future-ready products and increase our global footprint to fast-track our growth in volumes.”Dheeraj Hinduja, Chairman of Ashok Leyland said, “We are confident that, together with Optare, we can surge ahead leveraging historic British manufacturing excellence and taking advantage of the large opportunities for growth and development we see based on synergy and integration with the Ashok Leyland bus business.”Optare is Britain’s leading maker of advanced low-floor integral buses and employs around 500 people across the group, principally at its new assembly facility in Sherburn in Elmet, Yorkshire. The company produces a wide range of fuel efficient buses of its own integral design. In addition Optare has pioneered its ‘EcoDrive’ programme across all of its products which deliver a wide range of low carbon power options, including hybrid, full electric and dual fuel models.To see where Optare and other commercial vehicle manufacturers operate in the UK, click here.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)
November was a strong month for the gaming industry, according to new number from NPD–one of the strongest Novembers on record, thanks in no small part to stellar showings from the Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii. Games sales were up eight percent over the month before, hitting $2.99 billion, a $30 million increase over last November.The Xbox 360 had a particularly good month, moving 1.37, edging out the Wii’s 1.27 million. The Xbox leapt 67 percent over last year’s number (the Wii was only up 0.8 percent), due in no small part to the recent introduction of the long-awaited Kinect hands-free controller.Sony didn’t fare as well, however. The PS3 was down a full 25 percent from last year, down to a paltry 530,000–a fraction of the competition, even with the launch of the company’s Kinect-competing PlayStation Move. Nintendo’s DS was also down a bit, from 1.7 to 1.5 million.The top selling game of the month was, not surprisingyly, Call of Duty: Black Ops at 8.4 million, followed by Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, and Just Dance 2. Interestingly, despite the Kinect’s success, no titles for the new controller cracked the top 10.

Lately, local highways have appeared especially dark for nighttime drivers.That’s because dozens of streetlights are out along the corridors.Vancouver resident Tim Bias counted nearly 50 dead lights on Interstate 5 through Vancouver.The Washington State Department of Transportation plans to replace them eventually. But, unless they’re in a particularly important location, it probably won’t happen any time soon.“If they’re at an onramp or a curve or merge, we’ll reinstall new lights to maintain the current system,” said WSDOT Spokeswoman Tamara Greenwell. Otherwise, WSDOT plans to let burnt out lights be just that — until funding comes from Olympia to replace them with new fixtures.Statewide, WSDOT is upgrading its highway light systems to LEDs, which last longer and are more efficient than the high-pressure sodium bulbs that are out there today. It’s already happened in parts of the southern Puget Sound region, but the state hasn’t determined when it will begin to replace them in Southwest Washington.In the meantime, lights that go out will likely stay out, unless they’re in a location where safety is paramount. That’s because the cost of maintaining existing lights is about the same as replacing them with more efficient models. The agency has also installed new highway signs and uses striping paint that reflects light with greater intensity than those of previous years.“A lot of (light) poles will eventually be taken down, but the money for the replacement system isn’t there yet, so we’re focusing on maintaining the current system as efficiently as possible,” Greenwell said.

The other student, who’s 21, was in serious but stable condition after suffering a puncture wound to the chest and four to the back, the newspaper reported.Wascher fled the scene and the school went on lockdown before an officer spotted him about two hours later, several hundred yards beyond the edge of campus, according to The Courant. Wascher ran into some nearby woods and surrendered soon after, the newspaper reported.He is being held in lieu of $1 million bond.Wascher is a graduate of the Coronado School of the Arts, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune.

While lots of brands now pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to create and maintain their own voice apps, Google and Amazon don’t use them to answer these simple questions.Kinsella believes that both the brands and the tech giants are the reason this happens. Amazon and Google seem to prefer directing these questions to other parts of the internet, namely Wikipedia, Yelp and web searches. Brands, meanwhile, have been focusing so much on more intricate voice apps, like the Domino’s pizza delivery app, that they’ve missed some of the basics, he said.”They can offer some pretty cool experiences,” he added, “but can’t answer basic questions.”Both of the leading voice assistants may be avoiding brands’ apps for these questions to keep responses more neutral and less like an ad. After all, Kinsella’s research mentions how some responses include negative information or mentions of rival brands, which is problematic for brands but may be beneficial for consumers. The growing crowd of smart speakers is ready for your command Mentioned Above Apple HomePod (White) Tags Review • Apple HomePod review: Great sound, but it’s trapped in Apple’s world The Google Home Mini. Chris Monroe/CNET Bret Kinsella’s research team wanted to find out which voice assistant was the best for asking about specific brands like Chevrolet, Adidas and Starbucks.So his team at Voicebot.ai, a voice-computing and AI research outfit, asked four voice assistants hundreds of questions about brands, ranging from broader questions like “What is the longest-lasting lipstick?” to specific ones like “How do I contact JetBlue?” In all, they fed these bots over 4,000 queries.What they found was stark. Google Assistant was the best, and it wasn’t even close. In a new research study published Tuesday, Kinsella reports that Google Assistant on a phone offered correct results for 92% of queries, while Google Assistant on a smart speaker hit 81%.Enlarge ImageResult from Voicebot’s study, which showed Google Assistant’s dominance. Voicebot.ai Things got much worse from there: Amazon’s Alexa hit 34%, Samsung’s Bixby reached 32% and Apple’s Siri on the HomePod hit 28%.These findings reinforce past studies that showed Google Assistant as the clear leader in voice responses, helped by Google’s decades of work sorting and organizing internet search results. These studies shows that Google may remain the top contender in voice results for years to come, despite Amazon’s work to hire thousands of Alexa engineers and its huge push to expand its voice assistant’s capabilities. While Alexa still dominates the US smart speaker market, with about 70% of the devices sold already, Google continues to gain ground and could use its superior tech to eventually beat out Alexa.The results also show that Apple’s Siri continues to lag competitors despite its years of development.Amazon, Google, Apple and Samsung all didn’t respond to a request for comment for this story.

PATNA: Five more people have died in the Bihar floods, pushing the number of dead up to 97 on Saturday, as over 69 lakh people were affected in 12 districts, the state’s disaster management department said. Of the five new deaths, four were reported from Madhubani district, which has so far accounted for 18 casualties, and one from Darbhanga district, where a total of 10 people have died. Also Read – CBI carrying out surprise checks at 150 government departments Advertise With Us Sitamarhi, with 27 deaths, remained the worst-hit district, the disaster management department said in a report. The number of deaths in other districts are Araria (12), Sheohar (10), Purnea (nine), Kishanganj (five), Supaul (three), East Champaran (two) and Saharsa (one). Muzaffarpur and Katihar districts have not reported any death in the flash floods that hit the state in the wake of torrential rains in the catchment areas of neighbouring Nepal last week. Also Read – Ratul Puri’s ED custody extended by 4 more days Advertise With Us Around two lakh more people were affected by the flood on Saturday, pushing the overall figure to 69.27 lakh though the districts hit by the deluge remained 12. Over one lakh people have been displaced, with 1.14 lakh taking shelter at 131 relief camps of which 126 have been set up in Sitamarhi alone. Food is being prepared for the affected population at 859 kitchens and distributed by 796 personnel equipped with 125 boats, who are assisted by 19 teams of the NDRF. Advertise With Us Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi and Disaster Management Minister Lakshmeshwar Roy surveyed the worst-hit Sitamarhi and Madhubani districts, respectively, to take stock of relief and rehabilitation work on Saturday. Mr Modi said, “Those affected by a calamity have the first claim on the coffers of the state.” He asked officials to ensure that dependents of those who died in the flood are paid ex-gratia expeditiously, and no surviving flood victim is denied financial assistance. Water levels have begun to recede in nearly half a dozen rivers which are, nevertheless, flowing above the danger mark at a number of places. The weather department has predicted heavy rainfall during the next two days in some of the affected districts which may have an adverse impact on the flood situation.

An agreement for an €8.2m donation to build a Technical Education Institute in Limassol was signed in Nicosia on Friday between Cyprus and Absolute Charitable Trust Organisation.In his address at the signing ceremony held at the Presidential Palace, President Nicos Anastasiades said the donation is the result of the trust Alexandr Svetakov has shown in the country following time spent on the island and his acquaintance with the Cypriots.Anastasiades stressed that his government places emphasis on what the country needs, meaning the connection between education and vocational training.“With today’s donation we are rebuilding what we had wrongly suspended, the Higher Technological Institute. Something that seems to be even more necessary today than it used to be in the past,” he noted.Anastasiades expressed his deep gratitude to Svetakov, his wife and Absolute Charitable Trust “for this significant contribution that will make our country more creative and will provide our young people with the necessary skills.”The president also stressed that the thriving and rapid growth of the economy is due to the trust Russians show in Cyprus and to the excellent relations the government has with the Russian Federation.Svetakov is a Russian billionaire property developer, the founder and chairman of Absolut Group. The Group, according to Gold News, also invests in Cyprus. Among the Group’s most recent developments in Cyprus is the Noble Business Center in Limassol, which was completed in 2015, while it also participated in the first phase of the tender process for an Integrated Casino. Absolute Investment Group was selected last year as a winner at the Cyprus Investment Promotion Agency’s (CIPA) International Investment Awards.The Higher Technical Institute (HTI) was a public tertiary educational institution established in 1968 as a joint project between the Government of Cyprus and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). Its main objective was to educate technical engineers to meet the needs of industry for suitably trained personnel in middle management positions as well as the promotion of applied research. HTI offered three-year full time courses in Civil Engineering, Electrical/Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Computer Studies. The institute, along with several other similar schools, was integrated in 2003 within the then newly established Cyprus University of Technology.

Lab owners are complaining that they will be at a disadvantage over other healthcare professionals under the national health scheme (Gesy).One of them is medical laboratory director Pavlos Neophytou, who also says some tests which should be definitely included in a list of services available at low cost under the new health scheme are not.According to Neophytou, at present women can choose to directly visit a private lab to undertake their Pap smear test or a test for a genital infection and pay for it, while women who are eligible for cheap treatment at governmental hospitals may go there and obtain the service at very low cost – for example €6 for a gynaecologist to take a sample and €1 for each test.Under Gesy, it is proposed all healthcare professionals who register will be able to offer their usual services and be paid by the Health Insurance Organisation (HIO).“For this purpose, the organisation has come to a preliminary agreement with the Association of Clinical Laboratories and a list of tests has been prepared and sent to the parliament for approval,” Neophytou said.The problem, according to the lab director, is that the list of services which all healthcare professionals can offer at a low price does not include gynaecological examination and sampling, Pap smear tests and HPV DNA tests which screen for cervical cancer.“The HPV DNA test, which is in line with the European guidelines and the most effective cervical cancer prevention test, is not even on the list of analyses to be covered by the Gesy,” Neophytou exclaimed. “Therefore, a woman wishing to undergo the test recommended by the European Commission as the most effective should pay for it herself.”Currently, a woman in the private sector may choose to obtain the above services at places such as his lab, which offers both the gynaecological exam and the tests.According to Neophytou, given that HIO has included gynaecological examination and sampling only in the list of services by medical gynaecologists and not all healthcare professionals, this means that the Health Insurance Organisation is illegally limiting this service only to them.The gynaecologists decide which tests are necessary under Gesy, then get to decide which lab they are going to send the smears to.“This is unconstitutional because it prevents me from continuing this regular business, something that I have been doing legally for decades. It is also illegal because it limits the choice of women as to whom they want to be their gynaecological examiner and sampler,” he said.“HIO must make an independent list of healthcare professionals who take smears and allow women to choose who they want to take their smear to.”Regarding women who believe they have a possible genital infection, the current law specifies that a lab can do tests without a referral by a medical doctor, and Neophytou believes Gesy should continue to follow this.You May LikePlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementCardiologist: This Is What Happens When You Eat GlutenGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)UndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboola

into its hands and disregard the rules in place This makes the perfect recipe for chaos and disorder which some elements aim to achieve before the 2019 elections The modus operandi of these forces exploiting tribals is simple andakin to the standard operating procedure of Maoists — take government officials and security personnel hostage and shut down schools hospitals and other symbols of governance It is this kind of incitement that led to the abduction and rape of the five women from Asha Kiran allegedly by Maoists when they were performing a street play on trafficking File image of

developing autoimmune disorders like lupus James Cavallini/Science Source How the virus behind ‘kissing disease’ may increase your risk for autoimmune diseases like lupus By Roni DenglerApr 16 2018 2:15 PM When John Harley lost a friend to lupus while in medical school he vowed to get to the bottom of the disease a chronic autoimmune disorder that causes fatigue joint pain skin rashes and sometimes death Now some 40 years later Harley says he’s found a “smoking gun” The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) which infects some 90% of Americans may cause changes in gene expression that dramatically increase a person’s chance of getting lupus and six other autoimmune disorders a new study by Harley and colleagues shows “The work is paradigm-shifting in the way we think about genetic susceptibility and the interaction between genetic risk and the environment” says Amr Sawalha a geneticist and rheumatologist at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor who was not involved in the study Scientists have known for decades that EBV which causes an infectious disease named mononucleosis or “kissing disease” is also linked to several autoimmune disorders including multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis And children infected with EBV are up to 50 times more likely to eventually develop lupus which currently has no cure But an explanation for the links remained elusive Scientists also know dozens of gene variants that increase people’s risk of lupus Harley now a rheumatologist at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Ohio suspected that after infection with EBV the proteins that the virus uses to switch on its own genes might also preferentially interact with these risk-increasing variants in the patient’s DNA So Harley’s team compared three sequencing datasets that show where EBV proteins land on the genome in B lymphocytes the immune cells that run interference against the virus when someone becomes infected The team assessed five EBV proteins One of those called Epstein-Barr virus nuclear antigen 2 (EBNA2) interacts with nearly half of the genetic risk loci associated with lupus in people with European ancestry they found (The other four EBV proteins had no interaction with the variant genes) The team then extended its analysis to include genetic risk variants associated with hundreds of illnesses beyond lupus EBNA2 increases the risk of developing six other autoimmune diseases the team reports today in Nature Genetics including multiple sclerosis rheumatoid arthritis and type 1 diabetes The work is the first to show a possible mechanism for how environmental factors such as infections alter genetic risk to make some individuals more susceptible to inflammatory disease than others Sawalha says But some researchers want more tangible proof because the study relies on associations found in massive data sets “Show me the biology” says George Tsokos a rheumatologist at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston Tsokos nevertheless calls the work a “paradigm shift” It implies that an EBV vaccine if it were ever developed could prevent not just kissing disease but many other disorders similar to the way the human papillomavirus vaccine reduces cervical cancer risk The findings also point to the potential for new therapies for lupus and other autoimmune disease based on inhibiting the action of EBNA2 or other human proteins that bind to DNA at the same loci along with the viral protein the researchers say *Correction 17 April 12:05 pm: An earlier version of this story misidentified
