Twitter One round required her to choose between Drake and Joaquin Phoenix, and though she had picked the rapper over several other celebrities up until that point, she ultimately settled on the Walk the Line star instead.Not long after the show aired Drake got in touch to ask Heidi out, but she’d already met her current boyfriend, Tom Kaulitz, by that time.“Sorry Drake but you snooze you lose, you know what I mean? He basically called, like, a week too late,” the 45-year-old explained. “Someone who I know knows him and I guess he asked to have my number, and then he texted me. I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is so weird’ but then I never texted him back because I found the love of my life.”Though Ellen was stunned by Heidi’s story, the America’s Got Talent judge failed to see any problem with her texting etiquette and reasoned that she wouldn’t have known how to respond.“Like, what do you say?” she asked. “You want to go out? And I’m like, ‘No.’ It’s better not to say anything.”In hindsight, the style icon admitted she was “embarrassed about it” and looked straight at the camera while apologizing to the 31-year-old personally, but added that she is very happy in her relationship with the Tokio Hotel guitarist.And though she quashed any rumours of a secret engagement or marriage, when asked whether she’d be open to the idea in the future, Heidi said, “Maybe,” with a cheeky smile.

New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday arrested a “trusted” aide of controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik from Mumbai in connection with a money laundering case against him and others, officials said.Abdul Kadir Najmudin Sathak, a jeweller, has been arrested under the Prevention of Money Laundering (PMLA) for his role in “actively assisting Naik and aiding him in money laundering by transferring funds of dubious origin from the UAE to facilitate production and broadcasting incriminating videos for spreading communal hatred and radicalisation of a particular community”, the agency said. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’The agency will also soon file a fresh chargesheet in this case based on fresh evidence, they said. The officials alleged that Sathak had directly sent about Rs 50 crore funds to Naik, which the preacher illegally routed and laundered. Sathak was also the director of M/s Global Broadcasting Corporation FZE LLC that owned Naik’s Peace TV channel, they said. He will be produced before a special PMLA court in Mumbai. It said the company Global Broadcasting was “controlled” by Naik, who is stated to be in Malaysia at present, through Sathak, who was his “trusted aide”.”An amount of Rs 79 crore was received from GBC to Ms Harmony Media Pvt Ltd. But for these monies, it would not have been possible to produce these controversial speeches of Naik and reach wider audiences through Peace TV,” the ED alleged. It claimed that the source of funds remitted by GBC to Harmony Media is “suspicious” as there were no advertisements run on this channel and Sathak had not submitted any details in this context. Naik has been under investigation since 2016, when the Centre banned his Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) for five years. Indian security agencies have been monitoring him ever since allegations surfaced that he had inspired one of the militants involved in the Dhaka restaurant attack on July 1, 2016, which left 22 people dead.
chance of reaching level Which sport should Kyler Murray choose?Probability of reaching various performance levels in MLB or NFL for players similar* to Kyler Murray, by sport SportNever made ItScrubDecentGood/Great Baseball14.7%43.1%29.4%12.8% * Similar players in baseball are college hitters selected between no. 5-15 in the draft (since 1965). In football, they are starting QBs for a team ranked among the AP’s preseason top 10 going into the season (since 1990).Performance metrics cover the first 10 years of a player’s career.Sources: Baseball-Reference.com, Fangraphs, The Baseball Cube, Pro-football-reference.com, sports-reference.com/CFB Kyler Murray, a student-athlete at the University of Oklahoma, is facing a very good dilemma right now. Murray plays outfield for OU’s baseball team, and he was taken ninth overall in the MLB draft by the Oakland Athletics on Monday. Murray also plays quarterback for Oklahoma’s football team — and he’s currently the heir apparent to the No. 1 overall pick in April’s NFL draft, Baker Mayfield, under center.Murray won’t have to choose between baseball and football right away, but eventually, he will have to pick a path for his athletic future. (Or at least, the immediate future.) What’s a two-sport star to do?Murray is already in lofty company as a multi-talented athlete, since few players have ever been good enough to potentially start at QB for a top college team while also hearing their name called among MLB’s top 10 draft picks. But if you were in Murray’s position, which path — baseball or football — tends to offer the most success, historically speaking? This decision could mean the difference between Murray becoming the next Russell Wilson or the next Drew Henson.To help do the math on Murray’s decision, I used wins above replacement1In this case, an average of the versions found at Baseball-Reference.com and FanGraphs.com. to measure the careers of similar baseball players and Approximate Value2Pro-Football-Reference.com’s rough gauge for NFL productivity. to measure the careers of similar football players.3Specifically, I used a weighted sum of a player’s value produced in the first 10 years of his career, giving a player 100 percent credit for his value in his best season, 90 percent credit for his second-best season, 80 percent credit for his third-best season, and so forth.Who counts as “similar”? For baseball, I looked at college hitters since 19654The first year of MLB’s amateur draft. who were drafted between picks No. 5 and 15 overall. For football, I gathered data since 19905Roughly when the modern era of college offenses really began. on college quarterbacks who started6By which I mean, played regularly enough to be the team’s QB of record on Sports-Reference.com’s seasonal passing leaderboards. for a team that ranked in the preseason top 10 going into the year. (AP hasn’t released its preseason rankings for 2018 yet, but the Sooners seem like a safe bet to be included.) Because I looked at the first 10 years of a player’s career, those who were drafted by MLB or started at QB in college after 2008 were not included in the study.Broadly speaking, these groups represent Murray’s current status in each sport. I then broke their careers down into four categories based on their WAR/AV: “never made it” (players who never played a game in the big leagues),7According to Pro-Football-Reference.com’s data, this includes players who were on rosters or practice squads but never actually set foot on the field for a down of a regular-season or playoff game. “scrubs” (guys who played in the bigs but weren’t regulars and had little impact), “decent” players (those who were regulars but not stars) and “good/great” players (generally All-Star level players and above). Here’s how the players comparable to Murray ended up panning out in the pros: Neither path to stardom is guaranteed; in both cases, more than 50 percent of comparable players either failed to play in the big leagues at all or made a minimal impact once there. But the chance of washing out completely are much lower — by a factor of about three — for highly drafted baseball prospects than for college quarterbacks at top programs. Likewise, the odds of stardom, or simply having a solid career, are much higher for baseball players like Murray than for football players like him.As my research has shown in the past, college hitters (like Murray) tend to be very reliable picks relative to the rest of baseball’s draft crapshoot. Meanwhile, top-level starting college QBs can range from Tom Brady and Peyton Manning to Gino Torretta and Thad Busby. Add in Murray’s MLB draft signing bonus (the No. 9 slot carries a value of about $4.8 million), the higher average salary for MLB vs. the NFL in general (even the average QB makes only about a half-million dollars more per year than the overall MLB average) and the concerns that Murray’s height — he’s 5-foot-10 — might prevent him from playing quarterback in the NFL, and it seems obvious that Murray should pick baseball.In fact, to cut down on the injury risk, perhaps Murray should forgo football next season, even though the NCAA does allow players to retain their amateur status in football after signing in baseball. (I realize the temptation to put up ridiculous, Mayfield-esque stats in Oklahoma’s offense is difficult to resist.)Of course, if he doesn’t want to choose, Murray can always take the Tim Tebow path — the Mets are always looking for former QBs who are turning back to baseball in the twilight of their athletic careers.

It is alleged that Carl Parker, 53, of Cenotaph Boulevard, Lethem, Region Nine had sexually assaulted a young lady on June 13, 2016 at Yupukari, Central Rupununi, during a village outreach he had hosted. Carl Parker left the courtroom in smiles as media operatives took his photoParker’s Attorney-at-Law, Jerome Khan told media operatives that the accused is a victim and his situation a “perfect political storm,” the intention of which is to have Parker removed from his position. The REO’s lawyer noted that there are allegations that Parker was switching his support from APNU-AFC administration after he followed the procurement act and refused to award contracts to APNU-AFC supporters in Region Nine. The matter was held in court today outside the view of the public for security reasons applicable to sexual offence cases. Khan’s lawyer however, told media operatives, that he poked holes in the allegation made against his client, stating that the incident was only reported in December of 2016 and not when it had reportedly occurred in June.The Defense Attorney said that he also informed the court that following this alleged assault, the virtual complainant maintained a friendly relationship with Parker, and even visited his home on many occasions. Parker is expected to return to court on February 16, 2017. He is not expected to return to work however, as Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan was quoted in other sections of the media saying that Parker will be removed form his post ‘with immediate effect’ after the charges were laid against him.
Image: Shutterstock/Natalia Kabliuk Short URL A GANG WHO flew Lithuanian brides into the UK as part of an immigration scam were sentenced at Croydon Crown Court in London today.Ringleaders Lina Kezelyte, 33, and Mohemmed Jemaldeen, 33, ‘match-made’ the brides with their grooms, who were men from south Asian and west African countries who had tried and failed to get visas to remain in the UK by other means.By paying the gang to arrange for them to marry women from Lithuania, an EU nation, they could claim residency in the UK.The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said the gang saw 26 Lithuanian brides wed to grooms from Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Nigeria and Nepal, making an estimated £315,000 (about €360,000).In a statement, the CPS said Valentina Kezeliene, 53, the mother of Lina Kezelyte, laundered money and booked flights. Three others helped move money and attended the fake weddings.Swapping roles at weddingsThe scam ended in October 2013 when a wedding ceremony was interrupted by immigration officers.The bride and groom were arrested and subsequently charged and convicted. One of the guests, Beata Jarmolovic, aged 28, had a camera containing photos of six separate weddings but with brides and bridesmaids swapping roles.The sentences include:Lina Kezelyte, 33, conspiracy to assist unlawful immigration – four and a half yearsMohemmed Jemaldeen, 33, was tried and sentenced in his absence for conspiracy to assist unlawful immigration – four yearsValentina Kezeliene, 53, conspiracy to assist unlawful immigration – two and a half yearsRuta Sperskaite, 25, conspiracy to assist unlawful immigration – two years suspended for two years, plus 200 hours unpaid workRenato Semasko, 53, convert criminal proceeds – 18 months suspended for 18 months, plus 200 hours unpaid workBeata Jarmolovic, 28, conspiracy to assist unlawful immigration – Sentencing will take place on MondayRobert Hutchinson, a CPS London reviewing lawyer, said: “This gang made large amounts of money conducting sham marriages as part of an immigration scam involving flying Lithuanian women to the UK.The prosecution case involved looking at suspicious bank transfers, hundreds of flight bookings made for Lithuanian women and forensic analysis of a seized laptop containing crib sheets of questions likely to be asked in immigration interviews.“We showed that the claim made by Lina Kezelyte that this was a legitimate international dating agency did not stand up to scrutiny. This case shows that anyone who tries to circumvent UK immigration law in this way will face prosecution with a strong case put before the court,” Hutchinson said.Comments are closed as legal proceedings are ongoing.

Autisme : l’âge avancé de la mère serait un facteur de risqueCalifornie – Une étude publiée dans la revue médicale Autism Research montre que le risque d’avoir un enfant autiste croît avec l’âge de la mère.Cette étude, réalisée sur 4,9 millions de naissances, remet en question les théories qui voulaient que le père d’âge avancé soit l’unique facteur décisif en ce qui concerne l’autisme de l’enfant. Pour tirer ces conclusions, les auteurs ont analysé toutes les naissances qui ont eu lieu entre le 1er janvier 1990 et le 31 décembre 1999 grâce aux actes d’état civil électroniques où étaient mentionnés les âges des deux parents. Selon eux, toutes les tranches de cinq ans, la femme a 18% de risque en plus de donner naissance à un futur enfant autiste. Ainsi, une femme de 40 ans aurait 50% de risques supplémentaires qu’une femme âgée de 25 à 30 ans. Le facteur paternel n’est pas pour autant exclu. Le père d’âge avancé est un facteur de risque seulement si la mère est âgée de moins de trente ans. Il y aurait alors deux fois plus de risque d’avoir un enfant autiste que si le père a entre 25 et 30 ans. L’étude dévoile que ces dix dernières années, les accouchements après 40 ans ont augmenté d’environ 300% et les diagnostics d’autisme de 600%. On peut toutefois noter que cette augmentation serait en partie due à un meilleur dépistage de la maladie. Maureen Durkin, chercheuse à l’université du Wisconsin, tient à préciser que le risque pour une femme de plus de 40 ans de donner naissance à un enfant autiste est tout de même inférieur à 4 pour 1.000. Cette étude pourrait bien faire changer la situation en France où le diagnostic de l’autisme est établi chez l’enfant seulement à partir de 3 ans. D’autres pays, notamment anglo-saxons, commencent à le faire dès 18 mois. Cela fait pourtant 40 ans que cette prise en charge tardive est restée la même dans l’Hexagone.Le 9 février 2010 à 13:00 • Emmanuel Perrin

BNP on Wednesday demanded immediate army deployment to prevent pre-election violence and ensure proper election atmosphere across the country, reports UNB.”Being alienated from people for their misrule, the ruling party cadres are carrying out violence all over the country in a planned way. The fascist regime has got desperate to hold a voter-less election,” said BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi.Speaking at a press conference at BNP’s Naya Paltan central office, he further said, “Awami League and the law enforcers have got desperate to keep people away from the election. There’s no alternative to immediate army deployment the way the level of violence is heightening.”Rizvi claimed that their party candidates and their supporters came under attack by Awami League men in 18 districts on Wednesday, apart from the attack on the motorcade of their party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir in Thakurgaon.Besides, he alleged that the ruling party followers attacked the houses of their leaders and activists at different parts of the country. “The Awami cadres also attacked the election campaigns of our candidates at many places today (Wednesday) as well.”The BNP leader said Awami League is attacking their followers and repressing them to force BNP to quit the election race. “An appalling situation has been prevailing in the country while the opposition leaders and activists are being attacked or arrested.”He said people are witnessing a ‘bizarre’ election as ruling party leaders are carrying out electioneering with police protocol while opposition activists are being arrested even from their houses and party offices.
HBO Max Scores Exclusive ‘Doctor Who’ Streaming RightsJo Tro Do Plo Plo No: ‘Doctor Who’ Welcomes Back Familiar Monster Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on target Let me tell you a story about a TARDIS that just wanted some peace.It’s called “The Lost Dimension: Omega,” and it’s the grand finale of Titan Comics’ epic Doctor Who crossover.Over the past month, the Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctors have traversed all of space and time, trying to stop white holes of the Void from tearing apart the universe.Since the super accessible premiere issue hit shelves in October, the somewhat haphazard “Lost Dimension” series has taken readers to every end of the universe. But none of the Doctors’ individual stories (or those of his companions) measured up to the original story told in “Alpha.”A wonderful throwback for long-time fans, mashup is a nonstop bundle of excitement from tried-and-true Whovian writers George Mann and Cavan Scott, who also penned “Omega.”This week’s tale, while page-turningly lively, didn’t quite capture the spirit of its predecessor.“The Lost Dimension: Omega” variant covers (via Titan Comics)What it does particularly well, however, is wrapping up an eight-plus-issue plotline in a tidy bow (tie), with cameos from every incarnation of the titular Time Lord, and some fun interactions between our modern heroes.And with some beautiful art by Mariano Laclaustra (and assistants Fer Centurion). (It may be worth buying an extra copy of “Omega,” just to rip out a few pages to use as home decor.)The 32-page “The Lost Dimension: Omega” is on sale now for $3.99. Titan also this week released “Special #2,” featuring River Song and the Doctor’s daughter, Jenny.Now that the mystery of the Void has been solved and everyone returned to their rightful timelines, you can return to your regularly scheduled Doctor Who comics: The adventure continues for the Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctors this month.And, start the countdown to Christmas, when the First and Twelfth Doctor team up to save the world (duh) in this year’s holiday special, “Twice Upon a Time.” The festive episode marks the end for showrunner Steven Moffat and star Peter Capaldi, among other cast and crew, and introduces Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor.
Walter ‘Fred’ Morrison was not the kind of man to wait around for something to happen. A carpenter by trade and a natural salesman, he always had an eye for new inventions and it was selling a pie tin to a stranger that would be the inspiration for what would become a worldwide phenomenon. Back in 1871, William Russell Frisbie was making delicious fresh pies out of his home kitchen in Bridgeport, Connecticut. As the Frisbie Pie website tells us, by 1915 the family had moved their business to a three-story Bridgeport bakery and the Frisbie Pie Company was born.By 1920, Frisbie Pies were a resounding success, making over 50,000 pies a day, but it was the pie tins themselves that would lead to a new kind of revolution.Frisbie’s Pies 1920s delivery truck.Another big player in Connecticut is the Ivy League College Yale, and the Frisbie Pie Company listed Yale as one of its customers. The official Yale College website stakes a big claim in the invention of the Frisbee, alleging that as far back as 1920, students would throw around Frisbie pie tins during their study breaks.Frisbie pie tin. Photo by Doug Coldwell CC BY-SA 3.0Other legends have it that the whole town of Bridgeport was in on the game and once they had eaten their pie they would throw the pie tins from roofs and shouting “Frisbie!” to warn any unwitting passer-by to watch their heads, much like the golfing shout of “Fore!”.A frisbee made by Wham-O.Fast forward to 1957 and the Wham-O Toy Company (famous as the creators of that other circular plastic toy, the hula-hoop) has just bought the rights to a toy called the Pluto Platter.A dog jumping to catch a frisbee.As reported by the New York Times, Fred Morrison had been developing the concept since 1941, firstly naming it the “Whirl-o-Way” and then the “Flyin’ Saucer” but it wasn’t until it’s third incantation as the Pluto Platter with its aerodynamic shape and intergalactic raised print that the idea started to catch on. Morrison, ever the businessman, sold the idea to Wham-O for lifetime royalty rights.A frisbee containing some of the ashes of Ed Headrick. On display at Ripley’s Believe it or Not, London. Photo by Chemical Engineer CC BY-SA 4.0Within six months of buying the design, according to the New York Times, the executives at Wham-O decided to try out the popular name used by the kids in Connecticut and renamed the Pluto Platter the Frisbee.Refreshment In The Workplace (1951)They removed the intergalactic design and the Frisbee was born, becoming an international sensation and adding a new verb, “frisbee-ing,” to the English language.People have invented scores of games using this simple toy.When Fred Morrison was interviewed by the New York Times for the 50th anniversary of the Frisbee in 2007, he reported that he wasn’t really sold on the new name for the Pluto Platter when it was first pitched to him. “I thought Frisbee was a terrible name,” Morrison said. “I thought it was insane.”Goodtimes Frisbee Show poster created by Ken Westerfield 1980. Photo by Ken Westerfield CC BY-SA 3.0However, after the resounding success of the Frisbee and the clever business deal made with Wham-O he had a change of heart, jokingly saying, “It just goes to show I am a bad judge of names.”The first Frisbee ever designed for a Frisbee disc sport competition, 1972. Photo byAudra454 CC BY-SA 4.0From hamburgers and pizza to the Frisbee, Yale College seems to have a tradition of claiming “firsts.” We may never be able to pinpoint the exact moment that the Frisbee was invented but realistically, nothing exists in a vacuum, especially not good ideas. It was the right time and Fred Morrison was the right man to bring the Frisbee into the public imagination.Read another story from us: The Remarkable Turnspit Dog, a Breed Specially Designed to Help in the KitchenAs quoted in Time Magazine, Dr. Stancil Johnson, who serves as Frisbee’s official historian when not practicing psychiatry, states the reason that Frisbee has remained one of the most popular toys through the generations is that they are “the perfect marriage between man’s greatest tool—his hand—and his greatest dream —to fly.”

The article, “Digital mammographic density and breast cancer risk: a case-control study of six alternative density assessment methods,” demonstrates a strong connection between breast density and breast cancer risk. The study details the results of a comprehensive comparison of available mammographic density measurement tools and their ability to predict breast cancer risk. The performance of three area-based approaches (BI-RADS, the semi-automated Cumulus, and the fully-automated ImageJ-based approach) and three fully-automated volumetric methods (VolparaDensity from Volpara Solutions, Quantra from Hologic, and single X-ray absorptiometry (SXA)) were assessed in 3,168 digital mammography images. This included cancer cases diagnosed at Royal Marsden Hospital in London and normal mammograms from the England and Wales national mammographic screening program.“Mammographic density is one of the strongest risk factors for breast cancer and is increasingly being used to tailor preventive and screening strategies to a woman’s risk. It is also a major determinant of the sensitivity of mammographic screening and, by extension, the detection of interval cancers. Consequently, in many US states, it is now mandatory to inform screening-attendees of their density,” said Isabel dos-Santos-Silva, M.D., professor of epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK. “The results show that the mammographic density measurements yielded by automated volumetric measurements are as good predictors of breast cancer risk as those generated by well-established, but more labour-intensive methods such as Cumulus.”All six density assessment methods showed that percent density was inversely associated with age and body mass index (BMI), and certain reproductive factors. While all of the methods produced positive associations of density with risk, the association was highest for Volpara and Cumulus. Volpara and Cumulus were also the only tools that produced breast density measures for all images in the study, with other methods failing to produce readings for up to 11% of the participants. Women with the highest density had 8.26 times the risk of those with the lowest breast density as measured by Volpara on this dataset (the 95% confidence range was 4.28-15.96). The results also suggest that Volpara is better at identifying women at low risk than the other methods.“Building on other recently published results looking at the link between breast density and risk, this study led by dos-Santos-Silva continues to reinforce the ability of mammographic density to improve the prediction of breast cancer risk and to help physicians implement tailored screening according to that risk,” said Ralph Highnam, Ph.D., Volpara Solutions CEO and Chief Scientist. “A great deal of research has demonstrated the value of volumetric density, and this study further validates that Volpara’s fully-automated breast density assessment is a valuable tool and has the solid potential for use in helping to predict risk.”Additional studies are underway to investigate the utility of volumetric methods in screening settings including their contribution to the development of screening approaches tailored to a woman’s risk.Cleared by the FDA, HealthCanada, the TGA and CE-marked, VolparaDensity is used by radiologists to objectively assess density from both digital mammography and tomosynthesis images to help doctors evaluate who might benefit from additional screening. Highly correlated to breast MR assessments, VolparaDensity is a reliable tool that automatically generates an objective measurement of volumetric breast density correlated to the ACR (American College of Radiology) breast density categories. To date, more than 3-million women have had their breast density analyzed, using VolparaDensity. VolparaDensity is part of a suite of quantitative breast imaging tools built on the Volpara Solutions algorithm that allows for personalized measurements of density, patient dose, breast compression and other factors designed to help maintain accuracy and consistent quality in breast screening.
