first_imgTHERE ARE PLANS to bring in cashless welfare transactions at Post Offices – but postmasters want them suspended until a plan for the future of post offices is in place.The Irish Postmasters’ Union (IPU) is set to meet tomorrow with the Minister for Communications Pat Rabbitte on this and other issues.They want the Government to suspend the current move from cash welfare payments to electronic transfer until a plan for the future of post offices is in place.They also want to talk to Rabbitte about a number of other issues: The possibility of providing insurance advice services through Post Offices now that An Post has acquired the Aviva branch network, The Minister to instruct An Post to pull back from discussions with Tesco and other multiples regarding services which is “totally unacceptable to Postmasters” Establishing a mechanism to resolve issues between An Post and postmasters.Cash At the moment, around half  of the welfare transactions involve cash payment in post offices, making up 30 per cent of post office business.The Department of Social Protection is moving towards eliminating cash payment by 2017 and replacing it with direct electronic transfer.However, a recent independent report by Grant Thornton concluded that this move would result in 550 of the 1,100 Post Offices closing, said IPU.IPU General Secretary Brian McGann said the union recognises that electronic transfer is a modern medium of choice for many people.But he said a specific plan needs to be developed which “modernises how welfare payments are paid and in parallel modernises how Post Offices provide services”.We are calling on the Government to suspend the migration of cash welfare payments to electronic transfer to allow time to develop alternative payment mechanisms.McGann said a solution could be “a full banking service through the Post Office which would facilitate electronic payments and also expand services provided”.The IPU has recommended the establishment of a working group, under the Chairmanship of UCD-based Professor Ray Kinsella, to report on the issue.It also wants the Government to give priority to its proposal to provide Motor Tax renewal through post offices, and that this move be speeded up.Read: Postmasters distance themselves from campaign to ‘Name and Shame’ TDs>last_img read more

first_imgWASHINGTON– The Obama administration on Friday gave banks a roadmap for doing business with legal marijuana sellers without getting into trouble, another step by the federal government toward enabling a legalized marijuana industry to operate in states that approve it.The guidance issued by the Justice Department and Treasury Department is intended to increase the availability of financial services for legal marijuana businesses that are licensed and regulated, while preserving the government’s enforcement power.Washington and Colorado in 2012 became the first states in the nation to approve recreational use of marijuana. A citizens’ group is hoping to make Alaska the third state in the nation to do so.Currently, processing money from marijuana sales puts federally insured banks at risk of drug racketeering charges, and they therefore refuse to open accounts for marijuana-related businesses.Friday’s move will allow banks and other financial institutions to serve marijuana-related businesses while ensuring that they know their customers’ legitimacy and remain obligated to report possible criminal activity, the Treasury Department said.last_img read more

first_imgThe recent closing by Condé Nast of Gourmet and three sibling magazines, the shuttering of Country Home by Meredith, and the bankruptcy filing by the owners of Reader’s Digest, were sobering events for anyone in the publishing world. And the list of troubled or failing newspapers has increased dramatically in the past few years, fueled by the continued decline in both circulation and advertising, which is a cause of grave concern for survivors.To be sure, there were systemic problems that none of these failed publications could address in terms of the recession, falling readership, rising costs and the like. One issue that must be confronted by publishers moving forward is the notion that Web distribution should be free (I contend it’s economic suicide).Another issue that gets less attention is automation. Whereas the production folks in typesetting departments and the pressroom have had to accept the impact of technological advances on their respective crafts, art directors, managing editors, ad trafficking managers and other personnel responsible for assembling publications have maintained relatively stable workflows since the adoption of desktop publishing technologies some 15 years ago. As someone who spent more than a decade writing, editing and assembling publications, I grew to love the creative interaction between art director and editor, the iterative process that resulted in a well-designed magazine. However, the stark economics of 21st century publishing have left those fond memories in the dustbin of history. Today, publications have to automate any task that does not require creative input or some sort of judgment. I would contend that automation is increasingly going to be a necessary criteria for success and even survival in print-based publishing.Among the tasks that can be automated are file reception, image preparation, initial page layout, ad trafficking, preflight and insertion, proofing/approval cycles, final file transmission to the printer, and archival. In the interest of full disclosure, I am the director of business development for Enfocus Software, a software company that sells a publishing automation application. However, we are offering just one approach to this issue.There are several approaches that can be used, all of which are viable and which will fit different environments and budgets. Three Ways to GoSo what does automation mean? In broad terms, there are three types of automation for publishing and graphic arts workflows: first is related to standardization of tasks—making people play by the rules. Such an example might be an Apple Script that requires a job ID that is validated (i.e., five digits starting with a ‘3’) which is then entered into a database.Next is what might be called the one-trick pony: a script or action that performs a single task in an application. It might be a utility that converts native design file to PostScript or EPS and drops it into a Watched Folder for Distiller, then moves it to an archive folder.The most complex is process automation in which multiple steps are linked in sequence according to either fixed or dynamic rules. Fixed rules means that every file is processed the same way—i.e. an InDesign file is converted to PDF/X-1a for output compliant with SWOP, preflighted using a particular profile and then sent to a folder for either review or forwarding. Dynamic rules require instructions—most likely in the form of XML—to accompany the data file and outline the sequence of tasks and the specific details performed by each one. Here the instructions might link text and image files to a page layout template, then generate and distribute a low-res PDF for review and revision; if and when it is finalized, the file is then automatically distilled for final output and FTP’d to the printer, and archived to a server or off-line media.Stick to the ScriptsGiven the prevalence of the Macintosh in publishing, Apple Script and its sibling, Apple Automator, are likely to be implemented most. Complementing these are JavaScript, which is platform independent, and Visual Basic for the Wintel platform.  All offer an incredibly inexpensive and flexible way to automate numerous tasks in a publishing workflow for either of the first two categories mentioned above.If your operation is using a database application such as FileMaker Pro along with the Adobe Creative Suite, you can assemble a number of template-driven publications and catalogs. To be sure, there will be “tweaking” required to finalize the layouts, but you can eliminate hours of work importing text and images. Automator is another tool that costs nothing other than time and which can perform plenty of useful tricks. One is archiving final files. Image preparation is an area in which the human need to touch and interact needs to be reined in just a bit. I am not talking about image retouching, but image optimization and preparation. In this case there are several tasks that can help the art director. First is teeing up images: copying originals and making a thumbnail and/or a low-res RGB for layouts and the web. In addition, while there is a strong case to be made for using an RGB workflow all the way to final RIP/output, the vast majority of publications are still using a separated workflow in which the final PDF contains CMYK images. In addition to writing scripts for all of these tasks, users can create Photoshop Actions for many of them which can then be run in batch mode.Ad trafficking lends itself to automation, too. Incoming ads can be routed based on source (e-mail address or FTP site/folder) or naming conventions and then renamed or slugged using scripts. Once an ad has an ID, it can then be automatically inserted into page templates.So what’s the downside to scripts? Maintenance. Since all software is subject to upgrades and revisions the scripts most often need to be revised when new releases come out. Closely related to this is the custom nature of scripting: if the person who wrote the script leaves the organization, so goes the software maintenance, too. In some cases, this might raise intellectual property issues, but the real problem is that the scripts have a bad habit of breaking when the next release is installed, as anyone who has migrated along with the Adobe Creative Suite can attest. Typically this happens because resources get “moved” inside the application.From Start to FinishProcess automation requires the most analysis, planning and investment, but delivers the greatest return on investment. Editorial systems such as K4, Typefi and Woodwing on the editorial side, coupled with digital asset management databases and other tools can automate much of the page layout process while providing high degrees of flexibility with respect to content and delivery format.Closely related to this are systems that address other tasks in the workflow. Among these are DALiM TWiST and Enfocus Switch, both of which fall under the category of rules-based automation systems. While they work in different ways, both enable production managers to build customized workflows that automate file reception and routing, image preparation, page processing, PDF generation, preflighting, proofing, final delivery and archival. With these server-based applications, either a job ticket (XML or a derivative such as XMP or JDF) defines the steps and processes, or a fixed pipeline pushes files from a point of “entry” through to completion.For printers, there are numerous production systems, including ECRM WorkMates, EFI Fiery Central, EskoArtwork Odystar and BackStage, Fujifilm XMF, Kodak Prinergy, Rampage, Xerox FreeFlow ProcessManager, and Xitron Navigator and Sierra. As one would expect, these systems’ capabilities are more focused on the final output requirements, such as imposition, process and spot-color separations, trapping, RIPing and screening.Common to all of these systems is the ability to build notification lists of internal and external personnel to facilitate review/approval cycles or, in the event of an error, to intervene and get the process back up and running again.So, what’s holding you back? Many operations, especially smaller ones, typically say they don’t have enough volume to justify automation. Or they say that the tasks don’t require much time. In some cases, people have built workflows that are intended to save their jobs. However, these arguments will succumb to the almighty dollar, as the operation or position—at least with respect to these tasks—becomes economically unviable. Automating repetitive tasks is absolutely critical for small operations to increase their output without increasing head count (or the workday for employees). And publishers will increasingly be unable to afford the aggregate cost of myriad 30-second to two-minute file manipulations. There are multiple options at a variety of price points available to publishers, ad agencies and printers to automate numerous tasks. No matter which approach you settle on, there’s no time to waste.last_img read more

first_imgThis research examines pain ratings during the deliberate infliction of physical injury to one’s own body without intent of suicide (i.e., nonsuicidal self-injury, or NSSI). Participants (15- to 21-year-olds who engaged in NSSI) received prompts on their phones five times a day for 2 weeks asking them to rate the extent to which they were feeling negative emotions (e.g., sadness, anger, being overwhelmed) and to assess whether they had thoughts of self-injury and whether they had engaged in NSSI since the last assessment. When participants reported having engaged in NSSI, they were asked to report their experience of physical pain before, during, and after the NSSI episode. Results suggest that most participants felt pain during most NSSI episodes, and some felt that pain diminished after the NSSI completion, even though it was still higher than before NSSI. However, many participants reported not feeling pain during NSSI. Participants who experienced less pain during NSSI and more negative emotions before the NSSI reported more NSSI behaviors. But participants with higher fluctuations in negative emotions and who reported more pain during NSSI also self-injured more. These results suggest a complex pattern of the relationship between pain, NSSI, and negative emotions. These relationships vary between people and episodes, and understanding them better may enhance current treatments for NSSI. The Phenomenology and Correlates of Flashbacks in Individuals With Posttraumatic Stress SymptomsAnne L. Malaktaris and Steven Jay Lynn The Dynamics of Pain During Nonsuicidal Self-Injury Edward A. Selby, Amy Kranzler, Janne Lindqvist, Kara B. Fehling, Julia Brillante, Fengpeng Yuan, Xianyi Gao, and Alec L. Miller Read about research published in Clinical Psychological Science: People acquire more calories from eating hot food than from eating the same food cold, since they expend more calories digesting cold food. Therefore, the authors propose, the widespread use of microwave ovens to reheat food might have played a small role in the current increases in obesity rates. Using data from the British Cohort Study, which tracked individuals born in Great Britain from their birth in 1970 until 2012, the authors analyzed individuals’ body mass indexes (BMI; people with BMI of 30 or more are considered obese), dietary habits, physical-activity frequency, and household, including the existence of a microwave. The researchers found that individuals whose households had a microwave were more likely to have a higher BMI, regardless of their dietary preferences and physical activity. The researchers also looked at U.S. obesity rates from 1960 to 2014 and estimates of the proportion of American households with microwaves during the same period. They found that as the rate of microwave ownership increased, obesity rates also increased. Given the complexity of the obesity epidemic, which has implications for mental health and pathology, identifying even a potentially small contributor, such as increased microwave use, may increase understanding of the phenomenon. Understanding the mechanisms that generate false memories is important in mental health and legal contexts. Recently, Otgaar and colleagues (2017) proposed that associative activation is a viable mechanism for generating false memories. According to the associative activation framework, activation of one concept activates other associated concepts, the automatic spread of activation reaches highly associated concepts that were not presented, and false memories are formed. However, Tryon (2018) argued that Otgaar et al.’s description of associative activation did not meet the criteria of causation and explanation to qualify as a mechanism. In this commentary, Otgaar and colleagues disagree with Tryon and present several studies providing evidence for associative activation as a likely cause of false memories. For example, the higher the semantic association between presented words and an associated nonpresented word, the higher the probability of falsely remembering the nonpresented word. Otgaar and colleagues agree with Tryon that it is vital to establish whether something can be called a mechanism but believe there is evidence for associative activation to be considered a mechanism for the creation of false memories. Recognizing at least one mechanism of false memories may elucidate how false memories occur in legal cases and therapy. A Potential Role of the Widespread Use of Microwave Ovens in the Obesity EpidemicSatoshi Kanazawa and Marie-Therese von Buttlar Individuals with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) often experience flashbacks to traumatic memories. But what are these flashbacks like? Participants with PTSS (i.e., PTSD or subthreshold PTSD symptoms) reported the frequency, severity, and sensory properties of their flashbacks. These data were then compared with ratings of imagined flashbacks provided by participants with PTSS who did not experience flashbacks, participants without PTSS but with trauma exposure, and participants without trauma exposure. Only participants without PTSS underestimated the vividness, emotional intensity, distress, and functional impact associated with flashbacks. Moreover, flashbacks of individuals with PTSS were not fragmented but rather coherent. Other psychological characteristics were also assessed, and participants with PTSS with and without flashbacks reported greater symptom severity, including more sleep complaints and dissociative symptoms. Participants with PTSS also reported greater psychological inflexibility, lower mindfulness, and higher experiential avoidance (i.e., avoiding thoughts, memories, and experiences). These results suggest a meaningful connection between PTSD symptoms and mindfulness and highlight the possible utility of clinical approaches that enhance mindfulness skills and psychological flexibility to treat PTSD.

Obituary Christofias joked he was the red sheep of Europe

first_imgDemetris Christofias’ single-term presidency was marred by the Mari explosion and the banking crisis By Michael Theodoulou and Jean ChristouDemetris Christofias, who died on Friday aged 72, served as the sixth president of Cyprus since its independence in 1960, holding office from 2008 to 2013.It was the first time that communist party Akel’s had fielded its own candidate in a presidential race. Traditionally, the communist party had played the role of king-maker: its support helped secure the presidency for Spyros Kyprianou in 1983, George Vassiliou in 1988 and for Tassos Papadopoulos in 2003.Like his predecessors, and his single successor so far, Christofias failed to reach a comprehensive settlement to the Cyprus problem even though during the first part of his presidency his Turkish Cypriot interlocuter, Mehmet Ali Talat, like him was perceived as moderate.The biggest accomplishment both leaders managed to achieve together was the opening of the now-busy Ledra Street crossing point in April 2008, and the setting up of 16 bicommunal technical working committees, a handful of which are still active and partially successful today.The second half of his presidency however was marred by both the tragic munitions explosion at the Mari naval base in July 2011, killing 13 people and almost destroying the main power station nearby, and the subsequent banking crisis in early 2013 that led Christofias’ successor Nicos Anastasiades into a bailout and a devastating haircut on bank deposits in March that year. Christofias did not seek a second term making him the first incumbent Cypriot president not to do so.Demetris Christofias was born on August 29, 1946 in Dikomo in the Kyrenia district.The son of a builder, he went to school in Nicosia and graduated in 1964. When he was only 14, he had joined the progressive secondary-school students organisation, Peom. At 18, he moved up to Akel’s youth wing Edon before heading off to then Soviet Union to study at the Institute of Social Sciences where he earned a history degree. He spoke fluent Russian. Christofias, a self-confessed atheist, met his wife Elsie there and they married in 1972 back in Cyprus. The couple went on to have three children.Back home, he moved up the ranks at Edon where he became its leader in 1977 until 1987. He was also a member of Akel’s central committee. When Akel’s long-time leader Ezekias Papaioannou died in 1988, Christofias was elected general-secretary of the party.Demetris Christofias with his wife Elsie voting in the 1991 electionsHe was first elected to the House in 1991, and was re-elected twice more. After the 2001 parliamentary poll, he was also elected House Speaker, and was so again in 2006, holding the post until elected president two years later.After his victory, thousands poured into the streets waving red party banners and Cypriot flags. Christofias won 53.36 per cent of the vote.“I extend a hand of friendship to my compatriots the Turkish Cypriots and their political leadership, I call on them to work together for our common cause, a country of peace,” Christofias, then 62, told a stadium full of supporters.After Christofias’ victory in 2008, thousands poured into the streets waving red party banners and Cypriot flagsKnown for often referring to himself in the third person, Christofias was seen by many as a thin-skinned politician who seemingly longed to be popular and respected but was ill-equipped to cope with the criticism heaped upon him during the two major crises of the second half of his presidency. The fact that he refused to accept any responsibility either for the Mari blast or the bailout did not help. For weeks, people protested outside the presidential palace.Christofias’ presidency was marred by the July 11, 2011 explosion at Mari which nearly destroyed the Vassiliko power stationLater, Mari investigator Polys Polyviou said in his report into the blast: “The President of the Republic in this case failed to take elementary measures for the security of Cyprus’ citizens. In this case I am not referring just to institutional responsibility. In this case I apportion serious, and very heavy personal responsibility.”Christofias responded in a written statement saying: “The President of the Republic categorically denies that he has personal responsibility for the incident. This conclusion (by the investigator) is not substantiated by evidence or the material which was submitted to the board of inquiry. On the contrary.”At some point later, he even hinted that it might be sabotage. His long-time friend and defence minister, the now-deceased Costas Papacostas, took the fall.In May 2012, Christofias announced he would not seek re-election, saying that his decision fulfilled an earlier promise not to run for a second term if peace talks were not close to an accord. By then he probably knew that voters would never return him to office — and Akel clearly viewed him as a liability.Akel had also bitterly disappointed the Turkish Cypriots in 2004 when it backed Papadopoulos’ rejection of the Annan Plan, which meant that in effect the Greek Cypriots alone entered the EU in May that year.Christofias insisted that Akel’s “no” was different from the “resounding no” demanded – and achieved – by the hardline Papadopoulos. Christofias argued that he wanted a “soft no”, designed to “cement a yes” at a later stage, on terms more acceptable to the Greek Cypriots.His critics believe that he put his desire for Akel to remain in government (as Papadopoulos’ coalition partner) above his professed commitment to a settlement.By then talk of reviving the Annan Plan in any form was taboo. Moreover, Diko, the party Papadopoulos had once led, was a coalition partner in the new Christofias government, along with Edek, the socialist party with a hardline stance on a Cyprus settlement.Christos with then Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali TalatBetween September 2008 and the same month in 2009, Christofias and Talat met 41 times, making enough progress for the UN to try to accelerate the process. ‘Presidential’ elections were looming in the north and there was concern Talat could lose to Dervis Eroglu, a hardliner.However, Christofias rejected any talk of “asphyxiating timeframes” or UN arbitration, a stance backed by Russia. Even so, intensive settlement talks in January 2010, which focused on the issue of governance, made significant progress. Encouraged by what became known as the ‘Christofias-Talat convergences’, the then UN secretary-general, Ban Ki-Moon visited Cyprus at the end of January, hoping to push the negotiations to an end-game in March before the April 2010 Turkish Cypriot elections.Christofias, however, refused to have the convergences codified and published and Talat was ousted by Eroglu. In any case, Christofias had much more to deal with entering the second half of his presidency.Although Christofias had better contacts with the Kremlin than the White House and had once joked he was the “red sheep” of Europe, the EU had initially largely overlooked his communist background when he was elected. It preferred to take encouragement from his avowed intent to resolve the Cyprus problem.But there was unease among other EU members when Christofias secured a €2.5bn loan from Moscow in December 2011. Two months earlier he had consented to a Greek debt write-down that wiped out €4.5bn in Greek government bonds held by Cypriot banks. His government spent the loan on regular expenditure rather than using it to safeguard the banking sector.The following year Christofias was back in Moscow to plead for a €5bn loan. Belatedly, he had also approached Brussels for financial assistance. But he hoped that another injection of Kremlin funds would mean he could avoid the economic reforms, privatisations and austerity measures demanded by the EU and IMF in return for a bailout.In a candid December 2016 interview with Greece’s Sky TV, Christofias volunteered rare criticism of President Putin for spurning his “persistent and repeated” requests for a loan of up to €7bn. He revealed that he told the Russian president: “Give us this loan and I guarantee you that over the next 50 years, Cypriots will be blessing Russia, no matter who will be president of the republic.” You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityEarthquake coverage that comes with optionsCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoDirectExposeWorld’s First Surviving Octuplets Are All Grown Up.
