LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS So the choice is whether the coaches want to stick to their plan or shake things up completely.Decide Tommy Bowe really is ready to rock, and the door is open for Ziggy Zebo to sprinkle some stardust as well. Of course, with so much at stake and so many injuries, it is much more likely that one change for the positive necessitates a Plan B for the tighter, more physical, more attritional approach that could see the Lions close out the series. Stop the rock, hand stops the rock: Tommy Bowe is back in the mix for selection in the second Test. Should he play?By Alan DymockTOURING AS a Lion is much less Rock ‘n’ Roll than you would think. The booze is replaced with table-creaking amounts of carbohydrates and fish, the massages are painful affairs unknotting heavy limbs and there are no TVs getting shot out of windows.There are still stadiums full of shrieking fans, though.Hit or miss: Cuthbert scored but was shaky against AustraliaOn Saturday, in the second Test against the Wallabies, more than a few fans will be shouting George North’s name. After a scintillating display opposite the equally gifted Israel Folau in the first game in Brisbane, only the dreary and unimaginative would not greedily eye the wing the pair share. However, on the other flank there is a spot up for grabs.Alex Corbisiero and Jamie Roberts have been ruled out of the second Test, but Tommy Bowe is available for selection.His recovery from a hand injury has been freakish, with the Ulster speedster defying medical predictions like a sporting Ronnie Wood. Able to continue now, many are yelping for the winger to usurp Alex Cuthbert this weekend.Cuthbert was caught out with his defensive positioning and fumbled a high kick at a tense time in the Wallabies game last week. Bowe is known for his stability under the ball as well as his innate ability to track back into a good defensive position. However, snap decisions based on the closeness of the first Test could be dangerous. Warren Gatland and Rob Howley have a tough meeting in store. Bowe has his merits but is out of favour while Cuthbert is in a strange halfway-house between having jitters and being close to his pomp, should things fall into place early on in the next Test. What happens if Cuthbert is dropped for Bowe, the Irishman hurts his hand early, and Cuthbert is on to chase a game hard albeit with bruised pride?Perhaps Cuthbert is stronger than many give him credit for, yet if Gatland opts not to fiddle, but wants Bowe involved somehow, there is a bench spot to scrap for.Stage presence: Mischievous Zebo offers an extra sparkGatland is a fan of Maitland, praising him for his work rate in the game against the Rebels. He got his first try and has already had a spot on the bench for the Test, if only to warm up and watch.Then there is Simon Zebo. He is mystical figure, elusive and confident, and in a short space of time he has impressed enough people to generate buzz. Many want players on the bench that can make something out of nothing and Zebo falls into that bracket. MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA – JUNE 25: Simon Zebo of the Lions confronts Nic Stirzaker of the Rebels after a tackle during the International Tour Match between the Melbourne Rebels and the British & Irish Lions at AAMI Park on June 25, 2013 in Melbourne, Australia.

Lansing, Mich., Oct. 12By Prison Abolition organizersThe second in a series of rallies in solidarity with queer and trans prisoners took place Oct. 12 in Lansing, Mich. The event outside the Michigan Department of Corrections headquarters aimed to educate the public and amplify prisoner voices by reading their statements aloud. Banners read “Can’t cage our humanity,” “Dignity for queer and trans prisoners,” “Freedom will blossom in the ashes of the prisons” and “Queer rage against prisons.”The campaign stems from the struggle of gay and transgender prisoners at the G. Robert Cotton Correctional Facility in Jackson, Mich. They are routinely sexually harassed and demeaned by correctional officers.Sexual harassment of prisoners is a violation of the federal Prison Rape Elimination Act. When some of the prisoners filed grievances against officers for the illegal behavior, they experienced further mistreatment and retaliation, with officers ganging up against them in coordinated efforts to retaliate against the grievances.“We may be caged, but we’re not animals,” said a transgender inmate known as Chaz.A first rally was held on May 26 to publicly support the prisoners. Yet the problems continue unabated, and no officers have been removed, punished or reprimanded. The Legislative Corrections Ombudsman’s office opened an investigation into the mistreatment, but has not communicated any findings to the public or to the prisoners.The demands expressed by the prisoners largely ask MDOC to enforce its own employee policies. They include:Zero tolerance for harassment or brutality by prison staffNo retaliation for filing grievancesGuards who sexually harass prisoners should be removed from their units when they’re under investigation, per MDOC’s own policy. They should also be prohibited from forming cliques for purposes of retaliation.Staff should be required to follow MDOC’s own policies and federal policies that protect the rights of prisoners. Guards should be disciplined for violations, per MDOC policy.MDOC must provide better training for staff on professional, nondiscriminatory treatment of LGBTQ people.LGBTQ prisoners should have the voluntary option of a designated unit or facility and yard where they are safe from sexual harassment and assault.All prisoners should receive appropriate medical care.Transgender prisoners should be able to keep hormones in their quarters.Protester Hannah Shaughnessy-Mogill said, “When a prison guard can harass prisoners in a homophobic or transphobic way and then retaliate against anyone who files a grievance, the system is built upon the denial of human rights.”Prisoners inside the Cotton facility saw media coverage of the protest. The national LGBTQ prisoner support organization Black and Pink featured the rally in its newspaper, which reaches over 10,000 prisoners across the country. Black and Pink has been in the news for its “On the Inside Art Show” in New York City, demonstrating how queer and trans prisoners use art in their lives and struggles.Recently one of the trans prisoners who filed grievances against correctional officers was physically assaulted by another prisoner. Although she was not at fault, when she was transferred to another facility, officers destroyed most of her property in what was believed to be another retaliatory act.News of Chelsea Manning’s second suicide attempt came out in early November. Her attorneys said that the discipline she faced after her first attempt, including solitary confinement, further shattered her mental health. This is the “logic” of a system of incarceration that relentlessly assaults the humanity of all prisoners, and queer and trans prisoners especially. When queer and trans prisoners in Michigan stand up for their humanity, they are literally fighting for their lives.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

At the same time, the price’ fixed by the State Government for sugarcane cannot be lower than the ‘minimum price’ fixed by the centre, the Court added.Also, it is open to the States to fix the price higher than the price fixed by the Centre.A 5-judge bench comprising Justices Arun Mishra, Indira Banerjee, Vineet Saran, M R Shah and S Ravindra Bhat was deciding whether there was any conflict between Ch. Tika Ramji & Others, Etc. vs. The State of Uttar Pradesh & Others [AIR 1956 SC 676] and U.P. Cooperative Cane Unions Federations vs. West U.P. Sugar Mills Association and Others [(2004)5 SCC 430].The bench concluded that there was no conflict between these two decisions, and therefore held that there was no need for reference to a 7-judge bench. The bench had reserved its judgment on the limited issue of reference to a larger bench on February 27.The issue in the case was whether the State of U.P. has the authority to fix the State Advised Price (SAP) for sugarcane over and above the minimum price fixed by the Central Government.While considering the issue in 2012, a 3-judge bench felt that there was conflict between Tika Ramji and UP Cooperative Cane Unions Federations and referred the matter to five-judge bench.Answering the reference, the 5-judge bench noted that the factual matrix of both the decisions were different.In Tika Ramji, the court held that the appropriate government to fix the price of sugarcane was the Central Government as per Clause 3 of the Sugarcane (Control) Order, 1955 issued under the Essential Commodities Act.Later, the 1955 order was substituted by the Central Government with another order issued in 1966. In the 1966 Order from the word “price and the minimum price”, word “price” came to be deleted and the power to fix “minimum price” came to be retained.It was the 1966 Order which came for consideration in the subsequent case UP Cooperative Cane Unions Federations. Taking note of the changes in the Sugarcane Order, the Court in that case held that the power retained by the Central Government was only to fix the ‘minimum price’, and that the State had the power to fix price over and above such ‘minimum price’ fixed by the Centre.In this backdrop, the present 5- judge bench held that there was no conflict between these decisions :”As held by this Court in the case of U.P. Cooperative Cane Unions Federations (supra), the State has the competence to determine and fix the State Advised Price fixed under section 16 (of U.P. Sugarcane (Regulation of Supply and Purchase) Act, 1953) and therefore fixation of SAP by the State Government cannot be said to be beyond the purview of legislative competence. Once the fixation of State Advised Price has been done, the Cane Commissioner can direct the parties to follow the same as held in U.P. Cooperative Cane Growers Federation (supra). It cannot be said that fixation of price under the regulatory measure provided in section 16 suffers from arbitrariness, nor can it be termed to be uncanalised power. Thus, we are of the considered opinion that the decision in Tika Ramji (supra) is not in conflict with the decision in U.P. Cooperative Cane Unions Federations (supra) and the decision in the latter case is not required to be revisited by a larger Bench of seven Judges”.The 5-judge bench summarized its conclusions as follows :By virtue of Entries 33 and 34 List III of seventh Schedule, both the Central Government as well as the State Government have the power to fix the price of sugarcane. The Central Government having exercised the power and fixed the “minimum price”, the State Government cannot fix the “minimum price” of sugarcane. However, at the same time, it is always open for the State Government to fix the “advised price” which is always higher than the “minimum price”, in view of the relevant provisions of the Sugarcane (Control) Order, 1966, which has been issued in exercise of powers under Section 16 of the U.P. Sugarcane (Regulation of Supply and Purchase) Act, 1953;The Sugarcane (Control) Order, 1966 which has been issued under Section 16 of the U.P. Sugarcane (Regulation of Supply and Purchase) Act, 1953 confers power upon the State Government to fix the remunerative/advised price at which sugarcane can be bought or sold which shall always be higher than the minimum price fixed by the Central Government;Section 16 of the U.P. Sugarcane (Regulation of Supply and Purchase) Act, 1953 is not repugnant to Section 3(2)(c) of the Essential Commodities Act, 1955 and Clause 3 of the Sugarcane (Control) Order, 1966 as, as observed hereinabove, the price which is fixed by the Central Government is the “minimum price” and the price which is fixed by the State Government is the “advised price” which is always higher than the “minimum price” fixed by the Central Government and therefore, there is no conflict. It is only in a case where the “advised price” fixed by the State Government is lower than the “minimum price” fixed by the Central Government, the provisions of the Central enactments will prevail and the “minimum price” fixed by the Central Government would prevail. So long as the “advised price” fixed by the State Government is higher than the “minimum price” fixed by the Central Government, the same cannot be said to be void under Article 254 of the Constitution of India.The view taken by the Constitution Bench of this Court in the case of U.P.

pinkomelet/iStockBy ROSA SANCHEZ, EMILY SHAPIRO, and IVAN PEREIRA, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now infected more than 79.8 million people worldwide and killed over 1.7 million of them, according to real-time data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.Here’s how the news is developing today. All times Eastern.Dec 26, 9:07 amBoston Medical Center responds to report of doctor’s serious allergic reaction to Moderna vaccine“The employee received the Moderna vaccine Thursday and as is our standard practice was being observed post vaccination by trained nurses. He felt he was developing an allergic reaction and was allowed to self-administer his personal epi-pen. He was taken to the Emergency Department, evaluated, treated, observed and discharged. He is doing well today,” Boston Medical Center said in a statement to ABC News.– Aaron KaterskyDec 26, 8:57 am7 million people traveled by plane in last 7 daysDespite health official warnings to stay home this holiday season, and while overall air travel is down nearly 60% from this time last year, the Transportation Security Administration’s numbers have jumped, showing more than 7 million people hitting the skies in the past seven days, according to a “Good Morning America” report Saturday.Over 7.8 million travelers were screened by the TSA since last Friday, Dec. 18 — the busiest stretch of travel since the beginning of the pandemic.Dec 26, 12:35 amDoctor has serious allergic reaction to Moderna vaccine for 1st timeA person receiving the Moderna vaccine has had a serious allergic reaction apparently for the first time.Dr. Hossein Sadrzadeh, a geriatric oncology fellow at Boston Medical Center, had the serious reaction when receiving the vaccine earlier this week.“The employee received the Moderna vaccine Thursday and as is our standard practice was being observed post vaccination by trained nurses,” Boston Medical Center said in a statement Friday. “He felt he was developing an allergic reaction and was allowed to self-administer his personal epi-pen. He was taken to the Emergency Department, evaluated, treated, observed and discharged. He is doing well today.”There have been a handful of reports about recipients of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine suffering allergic reactions, but this is the first known via Moderna’s shot.Sadrzadeh told ABC News that he specifically chose to get the Moderna vaccine — as opposed to Pfizer’s vaccine — because he had a history of allergic reactions.At the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices hearing last week discussing approval for the vaccine, Moderna scientist Dr. Jacqueline Miller discussed some cases in the trials.“At the time of our EA submission, we’ve had two anaphylaxis reactions that have been reported as unsolicited and one was in a placebo group occurring 10 days after the first [shot],” Miller told the panel. “And that subject has reported a history of allergy to shellfish.”Sadrzadeh also had a shellfish allergy.“They injected the vaccine, and just like less than a minute after injecting the vaccine, I felt that my heart is racing,” he told ABC News late Friday. “I asked the nurses to come and just take my vital signs … and interestingly, for the first time in my life, I saw my heart rate is 154. I felt like tingling, numbness in my tongue and also in my throat. It was like a similar feeling that I had before with my allergic reaction.”Sadrzadeh said his blood pressure was so low it did not register on the machine and at that point asked if he could inject himself with his EpiPen.“It was not the first time that I had this experience, but I would say that it was the worst experience after my first experience at age 11,” he added.Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s foremost infectious disease expert, said people who are prone to these types of severe allergic reactions might want to get their vaccine at a medical facility that’s equipped to take care of them, in case they experience a severe reaction.ABC News’ Zohreen Shah and Sean Sanders contributed to this report.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

In 1987 when I read a book titled The Media Lab that described some forward-looking work at MIT, I came across the question: how will we directly connect our nervous systems to the global computer? I remember wondering at the time what global computer they were talking about. A few short years later a couple of things happened. The internet became a household concept, and phones resembling the Star Trek communicators I saw on television as a child became a reality. The concept of radio communication and its potential linkage to the phone system had been conceived much earlier in the twentieth century, but by the 1990s it became a commercial viability for everyday consumers. The buildout of all of this infrastructure exploded, and now the internet is accessible by user endpoints all over the globe. The internet has become ‘the global computer’ and the wireless infrastructure has become part of the answer to how we connect to it—from anywhere. Extending this trend of mankind’s history into the future, we can only expect that this growth will continue for decades and beyond. Although I made the transition from radio engineer to computer engineer long ago, I retain my optimism and interest in the wireless industry. With the inevitable progression of technology to enable richer experiences and services over the air, there are some things to anticipate for the server usage. Here are five reasons why I am bullish on the impact of wireless industry on the computer industry.Backend DatacentersThe increasing number of mobile devices are using their wireless access to connect to something. Whether it’s streaming video, daily news, online music, or ride sharing services—the volume of traffic is growing. To support this traffic, the data and intelligence must be hosted somewhere on computers. Servers are pervasive in datacenters of all sizes and locations, supporting workloads varying from content delivery to data analytics. Some of these services are hosted in the public cloud, but many are also hosted in private datacenters whose tenets include security and greater control over their computing performance. A mix of deployments are likely to continue for the foreseeable future.NFVNetwork Functions Virtualization, proposed in an influential 2012 whitepaper, has led to a migration of functionality from custom equipment to standard servers and switches. Equipment that may have been realized with ASIC-based hardware in the past can now be implemented in software on off-the-shelf servers, controlling costs and easing lifecycle maintenance. The software packages that have been implemented are called virtual network functions (VNFs). According to the original vision, these VNFs can be migrated and scaled to accommodate changes in network usage, just like cloud-native applications at SaaS hosters and “webtech” companies. This however does not preclude software from being delivered either in containers or run as processes on bare metal servers as performance requirements dictate, which again leads back to more usage for servers. The core network subcomponents in EPC and IMS that support the mobile networks are key targets for the virtual network functions. As global wireless infrastructure grows to support demand, supporting core networks increase in number and house more servers.Cloud Radio Access NetworksThe concept of Cloud Radio Access Networks brings us deeper into the metaphorical forest—exactly how will carriers be able to accommodate an increasing number of users with an increasing demand for more and more bandwidth, while still delivering a decent quality of service and controlling their costs? The industry has to solve this problem within the bounds of the following constraints: the radio wave spectrum is finite, and deploying towers and associated equipment is expensive. Historically, equipment at or near the cellular antenna sites performed the packet and signal processing necessary to receive and deliver end user data across the backhaul networks.With CRAN, this functionality is split between a BBU (baseband unit) and RRH (remote radio head). A Centralized Unit (CU) will host the BBU at a network edge site within periphery of multiple antenna locations and their remote radio heads. This would be less expensive than putting a BBU at every location, but it comes with some additional interesting benefits. CoMP (coordinated multipoint) reception and transmission can be achieved, bringing better utilization of the network by providing mobile devices with connections to several base stations at once. Data can be passed through the least loaded stations with some real-time decisions from the centralized unit. Similarly, devices can receive from more than one tower while in fringe areas, and centralized traffic decisions can lead to fewer handover failures. There is also a potential cost savings by alleviating the need for inter-base station networks. This implementation also allows for reconfiguring network coverage based on times of peak needs like sporting events.Why is this relevant? Because that CU is a server running software that implements the BBU. There is a lot of possible variability in this implementation, but same concept applicable to NFV is pertinent for radio access networks as well. Off-the-shelf equipment has an economy of scale that will be favored over the development of custom specific-purpose appliances. As 5G cellular is deployed and new coverages are created, CRAN will become widespread.Mobile Edge ComputingMobile Edge Computing is another inevitable phenomenon that will be increasingly developed as wireless usage grows. There is already a concept today within the world of datacenters in which “points of presence” are deployed to allow acceptable response times for internet users. For example, OTP (“over the top”) video services such as streaming movies are cached at locations near to the users. MEC entails a buildout of sites (lots of them) close to the consumers of data. Autonomous vehicles would not tolerate latency of downloading maps from a location six thousand miles away—instead, a local computing site would support this type of workload. Many evolving workloads including virtual reality and mobile gaming will benefit from mobile edge computing.The question (and difficulty) for service providers will be where to deploy these computing locations. This will occur over time and will result in a hierarchical network with more layers than the networks of today, which is part of the reason an analogy has been made to the distributed nervous system of an octopus. The concept of “far edge” locations will be introduced which house servers to host workloads and data in support the emerging wireless uses. Some of these locations contain existing buildings with environmental constraints, but that does not necessarily preclude installation of ruggedized servers. Perhaps more appealing to service providers, instead of investing in new brick-and-mortar sites, modular datacenters of all shapes and sizes can be dropped into place as “green-field” solutions. These prebuilt datacenters as small as one rack can be installed capable of providing fresh air cooling to standard servers even in warm environments.Reconfigurable ComputingWith all of these emerging workloads running on servers to support mobile wireless users, performance and packet latency can become an issue. There have been early adopters of this type of computing model in the high-frequency trading industry, where companies have deployed FPGAs (field programmable gate arrays) as PCIe cards inside their servers. These devices, when programmed for specific tasks, can offer faster operations compared to CPUs running generic instruction sets. Incidentally, FPGAs have been widely utilized in the telecommunications industry for a long time. Returning to the CRAN example, FPGAs can be used to implement FEC (forward error correction) algorithms required by the standard 4G and 5G cellular protocols, offloading the CPUs and accelerating the packet processing for these workloads. These devices will extend the capabilities of standard servers, further extending their value in this industry.So the “server industry” is not just one industry; it is a cross-section of tools and equipment applicable to many sectors including wireless communications.
