Martina Navratilova tells Djokovic to ‘suck’ and ‘go home’

Novak Djokovic made another appeal after Australian Immigration Minister Alex Hawke canceled his visa on Friday. The men’s world number 1, who is unvaccinated but has claimed an exemption from Australia’s strict rules on visitors being vaccinated against Covid-19 due to having already had a bout with the disease, faces a race against the clock to have his visa reinstated with his first match of the Australian Open scheduled for Monday evening.

On Friday, Hawke announced that he had canceled Djokovic’s visa for “reasons of health and good order”. Djokovic’s legal team immediately fought the decision and the case will now go to federal court over the weekend, with Djokovic’s lawyers pushing for a final decision on Sunday before he begins his bid for a 21st Historic Grand Slam. The 34-year-old Serb was summoned to a meeting with border authorities on Saturday morning, and could then be held in a state hotel while the case is heard.

The pressure has been building all week after Djokovic broke his silence on a number of accusations of breaking Covid protocol on Wednesday, and he admitted he had broken solitary confinement and conducted an interview with the French newspaper L’Equipe despite knowing he was positive for the virus, such a transgression could result in up to five years in prison if it is proven that he lied about his positive test.

Follow all the latest news below as Djokovic battles against expulsion once again.


Djokovic detained by Australian border authorities, report says

Novak Djokovic has now been arrested by Australian border authorities in accordance with the arrangement agreed to in court, according to CNN.

Djokovic had his visa withdrawn twice by immigration officials ahead of the Australian Open because he is not vaccinated against Covid-19.

Serbia’s Prince Philip condemns Australia’s handling of Djokovic

“The strength and actions of a brave individual, [Novak Djokovic] can give us hope and courage,” Prince Philip wrote on Twitter.

“It is becoming more and more evident that the ‘free world’ is heading down the path of tyranny. When tyranny shows its ugly face, it is our duty to speak out.

“Many will not recognize that we are going down this dangerous path because tyranny has a clever way of disguising itself as an act of good, therefore those who speak out are often met with disapproval and outrage, as is the case with our good brother [Novak].

“We have become distracted in our modern society, therefore, we can easily forget the telling lessons of history.”

Prince Philip of Serbia was born on January 15, 1982.

He is a member of the House of Karađorđević and son of Serbian Crown Prince Alexander. He is the fraternal twin of Prince Alexander and the second in line to the throne of Serbia after his older brother, Prince Peter.

Peter II was the last king of Yugoslavia, reigning from October 1934 until his deposition in 1945, when Yugoslavia became a republic.

World reacts to Australia’s cancellation of tennis star Novak Djokovic’s visa

Novak Djokovic continues to grab headlines in sport and beyond as his quest to feature at the Australian Open spans the courts, government figures, tennis personalities and, presumably, science.

Journalists, tennis personalities and many more – many more – had their say on the Serbian and his predicament:

Andy Murray rejects offers to play in Saudi Arabia due to human rights concerns

Andy Murray refused to ‘kick’ Djokovic while he’s down after he was asked his opinion on the Serb – and it’s also clear what his opinion is on playing tennis in Saudi Arabia.

Lucrative offers tempting top boxers, golfers and footballers to compete in Saudi Arabia aren’t enough for Andy Murray to put money before morals.

When Murray received offers to travel to Riyadh to play in exhibition matches, the potential to earn millions of dollars was dismissed.

Friday’s revelation came from the three-time Grand Slam winner’s agent in the week the Spanish Football Federation came under fire from human rights campaigners for taking their Super Cup to Saudi Arabia.

Novak Djokovic’s controversial beliefs and why he opposes the vaccine

According to Novak Djokovic, one of the defining days of his career came in the summer of 2010. He had already won his first Grand Slam title, but recurring shortness of breath plagued him in matches. To watch Djokovic now is to see one of the world’s toughest athletes in action. He covers the tennis court with almost robotic efficiency, always two steps ahead of his failing opponents. At the time, it was Djokovic who felt abnormally jaded. On several occasions, in the heat of the moment, he even requested medical leave for fear of collapsing.

Dr. Igor Cetojevic, a Serb who describes himself as an “energy medicine specialist”, was put in touch with Djokovic through a mutual friend. The couple met in Croatia, where Cetojevic asked Djokovic to extend his left arm while pressing a piece of bread against his stomach. To Djokovic’s surprise, his arm felt noticeably weaker when near gluten. Ridiculous as it may seem that such a meticulous player would be docile to such vague “alternative therapies”, it is possible to see all the success and controversy in Djokovic’s career – 19 Grand Slam titles, a record number of days spent as world No. 1 and not quite so detained in an immigration hotel in Melbourne – through the lens of this day.

Tom Kershaw explains how Djokovic’s beliefs and approach to his life and career brought him to this Melbourne-based saga.

Novak Djokovic will return to the detention center on Saturday morning

Novak Djokovic will return to a detention center at 8 a.m. local time on Saturday after the Australian government decided to cancel his visa again.

The Serb was not detained on Friday night after Immigration Minister Alex Hawke’s decision. But he will likely stay again at the Park Hotel on the outskirts of Melbourne on Saturday night.

The 34-year-old will first meet with immigration officials, before discussions take place with his lawyers to finalize plans for his appeal.

Djokovic is then due to remain in a detention center before the appeal is heard on Sunday, just hours before he is due to play his 2022 Australian Open first round match against compatriot Miomir Kecmanović.

Jack RathbornJanuary 14, 2022 8:00 PM


Djokovic fights Australian visa ruling as legal team launches appeal

Addressing a first hearing as Djokovic appeals the minister’s decision, his lawyers suggested the decision was made due to concerns that the tennis star’s appearance at the Australian Open will not fuels anti-vaccination sentiment in the country, rather than strong legal grounds.

Djokovic’s side have also called for a quick audition which they hope to conclude on Sunday, before the tournament begins on Monday, with the player due to play his opener on Monday night in Melbourne. “We are very concerned about the weather,” Djokovic’s lawyer, Nicholas Wood, told the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia.

The government representative at the hearing agreed to accept the expedited deadline and confirmed that Djokovic would not be detained – as he was for four days upon his arrival in Melbourne – until the appeal process is completed. is not over.

Spain denies Novak Djokovic investigation into alleged Covid breach

Novak Djokovic is not being investigated by the Spanish government over an alleged breach of Covid rules separate from his current difficulties with the Australian government.

Reports on Wednesday suggested authorities were looking into a possible legal issue after it emerged Djokovic had entered the country days after testing positive for Covid en route to Melbourne for the Australian Open.

Since September 20, citizens of Serbia are required to have a vaccination certificate or present a special waiver to enter Spanish territory.

“Only residents of Serbia who have a full vaccination certificate or special permission can enter Spain,” reads the current Spanish entry requirements.

Meanwhile, Djokovic has also been accused by Stefanos Tsitsipas of ‘playing by his own rules’.

Karl MatchetJanuary 14, 2022 7:20 p.m.


Raducanu the other Australian Open talking point

Djokovic is stealing most of the headlines right now, but Emma Raducanu is in the first slam since winning the US Open.

Our reporter Tom Kershaw wrote of the pressure she faces: “Raducanu may have already scaled the mountain, but these players still feel like banning the giants in front of her.

“What is a realistic goal? If such a thing can still be applied? Raducanu’s opener, against American Sloane Stephens, is a ruthless test in which victory alone would be a huge scorer. It’s a daunting task that also raises intriguing parallels. Few expected an unranked Stephens to claim US Open glory in 2017 and, amid the whirlwind of attention and unwanted comparisons to Serena Williams, she didn’t win a single match. for the rest of the season.

“By the time she was knocked out in the first round of the Australian Open the following year, her losing streak had extended to eight matches. “Relax, everyone. don’t worry,” she said with a smile and a laugh to a room full of solemn reporters afterwards. Sure enough, at Roland-Garros a few months later, she reached the final.

Sarah RendelJanuary 14, 2022 7:00 p.m.


So how did Djokovic’s situation play out?

Djokovic has been in Australia for almost 10 days and his visa has been canceled twice.

The first time he was detained at a Melbourne airport as he was deemed a health risk as he had not received the Covid vaccine. He won an appeal to stay in Australia, but Immigration Minister Alex Hawke had the power to overturn it again.

He exercised his right to do so on Friday, but Djokovic and his team are fighting back with the case now heading to the Federal Court of Australia.

But how did it get there and why? Here’s everything you need to know:

  • The United States Steel Corporation (NYSE: X) share price rose 5.35% today. That’s why it happened.

The United States Steel Corporation (NYSE: X) share price rose 5.35% today. Investors appear to be reacting positively to US Steel’s announcement that its highly sustainable and technologically advanced next-generation steel plant will be located in Osceola, Arkansas, near US Steel’s state-of-the-art Big River Steel plant. This facility is designed to bring together the most advanced technology to create the steel mill of the future that offers cost effective solutions to customers.

The new plant was designed to expand US Steel’s customer benefits as the company charts a bold path towards a more sustainable future. And the new optimized steel production facility is expected to feature two Electric Arc Furnaces (EAF) with 3 million tons per year of advanced steelmaking capacity, a state-of-the-art endless casting and rolling line, and advanced finishing capabilities.

“The State of Arkansas, Mississippi County, City of Osceola, Entergy, BNSF and other parties have all worked to make this the clear choice for a roadblock-free route to the future. We are not going to keep our stakeholders waiting to see progress. We plan to innovate this quarter and get to work as soon as the permits are in hand. With its extraordinarily low cost structure, energy efficient production equipment and advanced capabilities, this $ 3 billion project will bring significant benefits to our customers, shareholders, communities, employees and contribute to a more sustainable world.

“Our country and our customers need a strong and resilient supply chain to meet consumer needs, and that starts with advanced and sustainable steels from US Steel. Steel is essential to much of what the world builds, so the way we make our products directly contributes to a better, more sustainable world for all. This new facility will build that future. Stay tuned. As we add this to our world-class Big River Steel facility, you’re going to see great things as we advance the future of steel – the best for all.

– US Steel President and CEO David B. Burritt

“Arkansas has created an ideal business environment for the growth of the steel industry in our state. The investment and well-paying jobs that will result from this announcement will make a real difference in the lives of many families in Northeast Arkansas. I am grateful for the support of the Legislature which has been essential in winning this expansion. Today, US Steel is an important part of our future and we look forward to continuing our success in the years to come. “

– Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson

“Mississippi County has become a national leader in steel production, and US Steel’s decision to create the ‘steel mill of the future’ in this community continues to underscore why. Arkansas not only has a skilled workforce, a reliable electricity grid, and easy access to rivers, railways, and highways, but it also has a governor, a general assembly and many community partners and stakeholders who recognize the importance of expanding economic opportunities. for the Arkansans and who will go the extra mile to compete for these opportunities. US Steel is a valued member of the state’s business community, and we are delighted to continue our partnership with them as they establish the most advanced steel fabrication facility in North America, here. even in Arkansas.

Udaan revenue increased 6X to 5,919 Cr in fiscal year 21 https://atlantic-storm.org/udaan-revenue-increased-6x-to-5919-cr-in-fiscal-year-21/ Tue, 11 Jan 2022 04:31:27 +0000 https://atlantic-storm.org/udaan-revenue-increased-6x-to-5919-cr-in-fiscal-year-21/

B2B e-commerce platform Udaan remains the leader in the wholesale sourcing space among startups and recently raised another $ 250 million to fuel its growth story.

It looks like travel constraints and disruption to traditional supply chains from Covid 19 created a whole new world of opportunity for the Lightspeed-backed company during the year and Udaan saw its revenue increase by 6X to hit 5,919 crore in FY 21 from just Rs 978 crore in FY20.

The sale of goods traded on the online platform by Udaan was the company’s main revenue driver, accounting for 94.41% of annual revenue. These sales jumped 8.8 times to Rs 5,588.4 crore in FY21 from just Rs 632.7 crore in FY20.

The company also collects platform fees from other platform vendors and this collection increased 7.5% to Rs 188 crore in FY21.

Udaan provides financing services to merchants on its platform and collects interest and processing fees from them. Credit facilities are provided to sellers and buyers who trade on the Udaan platform, bearing interest ranging from 0% to 24% per annum and having a maturity of 7 to 90 days.

The platform’s revenue from financing services grew 96% year-on-year to Rs 34.1 crore, while its loan portfolio grew 46.8% from 217.5 crore to end of year 20 to 319.3 end of year 21.

Providing delivery services (logistics services) and cash collection to its customers generated Rs 59.5 crore while sales of returned goods as scrap brought in an additional Rs 33.7 crore for B2B Unicorn during exercise 20-21.

The company had raised $ 280 million at the start of the fourth quarter of FY21 as it was operating at an exponential scale during that period and filled orders 8 times over the corresponding quarter of FY20.

Purchasing commercial inventory from manufacturers is the most important cost center for Udaan, accounting for 63.3% of its annual costs, with FMCG being its largest product line. Cost of goods sold increased in line with sales, up 8.5 times to Rs 5,531.7 crore in FY21 from Rs 650.3 crore in FY21 20.

At the start of FY21, Udaan had fired around 1,000 contract workers at the height of the first wave of the pandemic to conserve capital. He eventually hired more for the remainder of the year as order volumes surged and contract labor costs rose nearly 3% to Rs 620.5 crore.

The Bengaluru-based startup’s personnel costs doubled during this hyper-growth phase, with personnel costs being the second largest expense, accounting for 10.6% of its total costs. Employee benefit payments doubled from Rs 430 crore in FY20 to Rs 923.5 crore in FY21 and included ESOP payments of Rs 240 crore (i.e. say nearly 26% of salaries paid).


Overall, the six-year-old company incurred Rs 8,742 crore in total expenditure in FY21, 2.4 times more than Rs 2,675.2 crore booked in FY 20. At the level Unit, he spent Rs 1.48 to earn a single rupee of operating income, improving by 60.6% from Rs 3.76 spent for the same in FY20.

The combination of increased operational efficiency and sales growth has helped the company reduce its annual losses by 1.4% year-on-year to Rs 2,482.3 crore in FY21, even with a scale increase of 8.8 times. EBITDA margins improved significantly from -226.3% in FY20 to -37.3% in FY21.

Is Udaan a market place?

While those numbers look impressive, its income statement indicates that this is a stocks game, not a market. This is also evident in his market fee collections which contributed barely 3% of Udaan’s total income.

We understand that food and FMCG contributes around two-thirds of Udaan’s sales and that 100% of foreign direct investment (FDI) is allowed in food-focused B2B and B2C e-commerce games. . Still, it’s surprising that over 94% of Udaan’s sales come from the food and FMCG verticals. The company has changed Rs 5,588.4 crore in revenue from merchandise trade (via inventory driven play) in FY21.

Udaan declined to comment on the story.

Even if Udaan were to claim that the pandemic resulted in exceptional growth in its food and FMCG business which together contributed over 94% of its total collection in FY21, that will not detract from the premise of the inventory-driven model as the company generated around 65% of its revenue through the sale of traded goods in FY2020 as well.


Until FY19, the sale of traded goods was not a significant part of Udaan’s income, and its operating income could not exceed Rs 50 crore. Operating income then rose sharply, increasing by around 21X to Rs 978 crore in FY20, with the sale of merchandise (Rs 638 crore) contributing most of the upsurge.

The business model, although it is a ticket to high revenue, is a low-margin business unlike the market model, once it reaches scale. It should be interesting to see what made Udaan go all-in on the business model, while apparently allowing the market model to catch up later, or maybe even give up in time?

New Ottawa research unit seeks to adjust attitudes to climate choices https://atlantic-storm.org/new-ottawa-research-unit-seeks-to-adjust-attitudes-to-climate-choices/ Mon, 03 Jan 2022 16:05:28 +0000 https://atlantic-storm.org/new-ottawa-research-unit-seeks-to-adjust-attitudes-to-climate-choices/ “The choices of Canadians and businesses will play an important role in the fight against climate change”

Ottawa wants to know what it would take to convince Canadians to switch to electric vehicles and take other climate-friendly action. To find out, the government designed a behavioral science and climate change program to find the best ways to motivate people to change.

Top priorities also include studying how to encourage energy efficient retrofits, according to documents obtained by Canada’s National Observer as part of a federal access to information request.

The behavior change program was launched in September, pursuant to a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and the Impact and Climate Unit. innovation from the Privy Council Office (PCO).

ECCC is interested in a wide range of issues – from how to encourage a circular economy that sees more products reused, resold, repaired, remanufactured and shared, to how Canadians would respond to increased transparency on climate plans of the government.

“In addition to major changes in energy, transportation, agriculture and other large-scale systems, the choices of Canadians and businesses will play an important role in addressing climate change,” the door said. – ECCC speech, Samantha Bayard.

“We need to do more and faster, and we know that awareness and education on their own is often not enough to bring about behavior change. “

ECCC says behavioral science research will yield data on people’s choices to better understand barriers to climate action.

“It will help us translate the emotions, habits, beliefs, biases and social context of real life into practical ways to improve the design and delivery of the programs, processes, regulations, communications and other interactions we have.” with the Canadiens, ”said Bayard.

David Hardisty, associate professor and chair of the marketing and behavioral sciences division at the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia, said understanding people’s behavior should be seen as one tool among many. others, alongside things like legislation. But citing the ongoing pandemic as an example of public health rules being flouted by some people, he said it was clear the new rules were not always enough to bring about change.

“Maybe we’ve under-invested in understanding human psychology and human behavior in this area, and it shows how you can’t just rely on changing the laws,” he said. “Climate change is also a polarized problem, it’s a complicated problem, and you can’t just fix the law and everything will be taken care of.”

This behavioral science research program is not the federal government’s first. The Behavioral Sciences Unit was launched in 2015 and is now focusing on the response to COVID-19.

Changing consumer behavior has been flagged by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) as an important way to tackle climate change, as some estimates predict that two to three billion people will join the ranks. of middle-class consumers by 2050. UNEP has said every nine months the world’s population is consuming more natural resources than what could be produced sustainably in a year, and changing consumption patterns is crucial for sustainable life on Earth.

“Achieving this goal requires decoupling economic growth and human well-being from the unsustainable use of natural resources,” a 2017 UNEP report read.

UNEP said effective strategies for encouraging better choices are to make the greener choice the default choice. Taking the example of organ donation, the shift from the opt-in to the opt-out for donors has radically transformed organ donation rates, offering possible lessons for climate change. Germany, for example, has customers using renewable energy by default, forcing people to switch to fossil fuels, which has led to increased use of green electricity.

Hardisty said behavioral science research offers probable options on what might work to encourage behavior change, but it’s difficult to predict with absolute certainty. Researchers tend to trumpet what works, not what doesn’t, he said. Still, green nudges that change buying habits, like emissions labeling on food, could help.

“Different foods that you eat have different climate impacts, and so there is (some research) that shows whether you’ve created climate labels correctly…

Another way to change behavior to encourage greener choices can be guilt. Since Halifax launched a clear plastic garbage bag strategy, where neighbors could hypothetically see other people’s trash, the city has reported significantly higher recycling rates. Likewise, research found that Calgary residents were more likely to leave clippings on their lawns rather than putting them in garbage bags after brochures were distributed with messages such as “Your neighbors want it. let you ride a grass bike ”.

ECCC and NRCan have confirmed that the results of their behavioral science research will be made public.

Two of the five research fellows have already started work, and more are expected to be hired in the coming months. Wook Yang, a doctoral candidate at the University of Toronto, works in the energy efficiency program at NRCan, while Katie Harper, a recent doctoral graduate from Ryerson / X University, works in the ECCC mandate.

According to a memorandum of understanding, the program is expected to run until 2024, although it is currently only funded for that fiscal year, meaning parties will reassess its future in March. The estimated cost for the next two years is approximately $ 1.5 million.

The research program is a three-pronged approach involving data collection, online studies and field experiments. The research unit “will also deal with mandate letter commitments,” according to the note. These letters now include far-reaching pledges such as building climate-resilient infrastructure, capping emissions from the oil and gas sector, achieving a 100% net electricity grid by 2035, providing electricity. international climate finance, development of a whole-of-government emergency preparedness strategy. and requiring federally regulated institutions to develop and disclose climate risks and net zero plans.

NCAAW: key WNBA prospect Destanni Henderson for South Carolina https://atlantic-storm.org/ncaaw-key-wnba-prospect-destanni-henderson-for-south-carolina/ Sat, 01 Jan 2022 17:00:48 +0000 https://atlantic-storm.org/ncaaw-key-wnba-prospect-destanni-henderson-for-south-carolina/

The South Carolina Gamecocks (12-1) are perhaps the best team in college girls’ basketball, and they are certainly one of the strongest programs in the country. Head coach Dawn Staley has made South Carolina a national superpower, regularly landing some of basketball’s top rookies, such as center Aliyah Boston and sharpshooter Zia Cooke.

While Boston and Cooke, both juniors, will certainly be the subject of extensive discussion as WNBA prospects ahead of the 2023 WNBA Draft, it’s currently the turn of senior point guard Destanni Henderson, and she has to strong arguments to write for the league next spring.

Henderson – or “Henny,” as she is affectionately known among Gamecocks loyalists – was incorporated into the starting line-up from South Carolina upon Tyasha Harris graduation in 2020, and the team earned a 38-6 combined since then. The 5-foot-7 product from Fort Myers, Fla. Has made a name for himself as one of the nation’s most dynamic playmakers; that, coupled with her team’s undeniable success, makes her a must-see WNBA prospect until 2022.

Honors and statistics

The nation’s No.6 rookie – and No.1 point guard – in 2018, Henderson enjoyed immediate success as Gamecock, starting nine games and winning SEC All-Freshman honors in his debut season. She was subsequently named to the SEC All-Star teams in both sophomore and junior, with the latter honor coming as a full-time starter; Henderson averaged 12.2 points, 4.7 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game in 2020-21.

Prior to the 2021-2022 season, Henderson was named on the preseason watchlists for the Naismith Trophy and the Wooden Award, as well as the preseason watchlist for the Nancy Lieberman Award, which is awarded to the best leader in the country. Henderson was also named to the 2021-22 North American second-team preseason by USA today.

Internationally, Henderson has been with USA Basketball since 2015, when she competed in trials for the United States U16 National Team. She won a bronze medal with the United States team at the FIBA ​​World Under-17 Championship in 2016 and in 2021, she won gold as part of an American team in charge of the FIBA Women’s AmeriCup.

How she helps the Gamecocks

Henderson’s ability to push the basketball and attack the rim adds an important dimension to South Carolina’s offense.
Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

After succeeding a popular and successful point guard at Harris, many eyes have turned to Henderson as South Carolina’s “X-factor”, especially as the Gamecocks enter the New Year as the one of the favorites to compete for the 2022 national championship. Boston may be the best player on the team, but her stability, in a way, amplifies the importance of a goalie like Henderson: when she plays well , South Carolina is nearly impossible to beat.

Henderson’s most obvious strength is her speed with basketball, and this is fully reflected in how she is used in the South Carolina offense. As a junior, 39.2% of Henderson’s offensive possessions have transitioned (Synergy Sports) – a critical figure for a Gamecocks team that often faces conservative and paint-related defenses attempting to neutralize his waist when she can’t get out and Run.

Needless to say, getting out and running isn’t a problem for Henderson. Staley praised his point guard’s efforts in a recent South Carolina victory over Stanford – a game in which Henderson recorded 17 points, seven assists and seven steals – citing his ability to “reignite” the offense. ‘team and adding that she brings a “different dimension” to the Gamecocks with her speed and defense at the point of attack.

While Henderson is good at a few highlighted reel plays every time she takes the field thanks to her fast hands and even faster feet, she is far from a one-dimensional player. His jumpshooting has quietly improved over the years, and as a senior, his jumpshot has been both versatile and effective, ranking in the 93rd percentile in scoring efficiency on both non-dribbling jumpers. and catch and shoot (Synergy Sports). Keeping those shots down will be key for Henderson as a defense plan to keep her out of the paint, and a well-balanced scoring package will certainly make her more appealing to WNBA coaches and general managers looking for. ‘a keeper in the next project of the year.

Watch her play

The SEC season is officially underway, which means there is no shortage of big games on the South Carolina schedule. The Gamecocks’ first televised game of 2022 will be on Jan.9 against Rhyne Howard and the Kentucky Wildcats (ESPN), and they will later have several more against Mississippi State (Feb.6; ESPN2), Kentucky (Feb. 10; ESPN) and Georgia (February 13; ESPN2).

South Carolina will also get another chance against the UConn Huskies, which the Gamecocks handily beat in November, January 27 (ESPN). This will be a great opportunity for Henderson to show off his skills against his co-guard and WNBA prospect Evina Westbrook.

All statistics and team records for the 2021-22 season are up to date through December 31, 2021.

Saudi irrigation agency signs agreement with UN for 2 projects https://atlantic-storm.org/saudi-irrigation-agency-signs-agreement-with-un-for-2-projects/ Wed, 29 Dec 2021 14:36:21 +0000 https://atlantic-storm.org/saudi-irrigation-agency-signs-agreement-with-un-for-2-projects/

DJEDDAH: Hemaya, a Saudi information security association, aims to be a leader in the community by raising awareness about the safe use of technology.

The association, which is the first nonprofit of its kind in Saudi Arabia, is enlisting cybersecurity experts to help raise awareness about information security.

Its services range from consultations, training, workshops, campaigns and, most importantly, the creation of partnerships in the public and private sectors.

Cyber ​​security is a challenge for businesses and governments around the world, and like many countries, the Kingdom regularly faces the threat of cybercrime.

In 2017, the Saudi National Cybersecurity Authority was created to define the regulatory and operational framework for cybersecurity in order to better protect the Kingdom’s national security.

“Unfortunately, cybersecurity faces many challenges, and more and more of them. Lack of awareness among people could be one of the main challenges forcing authorities and cybersecurity experts to work on the resolution, as well as downplaying opportunities for attackers, ”said Mohammed Al-Jebreen, director of cybersecurity. communities and partnerships at Hemaya, at Arab News.

“Building partnerships between different entities and sectors greatly helps in solving and meeting these challenges, as each party provides the necessary capacities to contribute to solving these problems,” he added.

Hemaya also shares its knowledge through its initiatives using specialists and volunteer experts. These projects provide the community with various skills to protect themselves from data breaches.

“There is a very strong demand from the community to learn about the field of information security, especially if the knowledge is provided by entities and recognized experts in the field. When we at Hemaya announced the Der’a Community Cyber ​​Security Training Initiative, over 44,000 trainees signed up. This gives a good indication of the increased desire of people to know more about cybersecurity, ”said Al-Jebreen.

Hemaya initiatives are based on three different principles: sustainability, volunteering and partnerships. All of them are part of the vision of the association’s mission to be a leader and authority in the cybersecurity industry.

Abrar Al-Refaei, deputy managing director of Hemaya, told Arab News that “most of the time, experts indicate their willingness to volunteer to provide Hemaya’s services to the community.”

She said: “When we approached some people to offer our services, we were very well received. It should be noted that our members believe in putting effort and time in community service to raise awareness and help educate people, and they encourage others to do so.

Hemaya’s cybersecurity experts are all members of six social groups linked to the association.

“We have six companies in Hemaya, as follows: The Main, Hemaya Operation, Hemaya GRC, Hemaya Academics, Hameat and HAT. The roles of companies are complementary and each company has an important role, ”said Al-Jebreen.

The association also works to strengthen and empower national capacities in the field to achieve the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.

“At Hemaya, we have always believed in the importance of developing national capacities. We periodically deliver lectures and workshops and broadcast them publicly to everyone. They have different difficulty levels, from beginner to advanced. The Der’a Initiative is an example of what Hemaya has done to empower and strengthen national capacities in the area of ​​information security, ”Al-Refaei said.

Doctors in Oman Use Augmented Reality to Perform Critical Spine Surgery https://atlantic-storm.org/doctors-in-oman-use-augmented-reality-to-perform-critical-spine-surgery/ Sat, 25 Dec 2021 15:55:00 +0000 https://atlantic-storm.org/doctors-in-oman-use-augmented-reality-to-perform-critical-spine-surgery/ Technology is expected to play an important role in enabling surgeons to perform complex operations.

Muscat: An Omani medical team from Al Khoud Armed Forces Hospital successfully performed a spinal stabilization operation using augmented reality technology on a 52-year-old citizen.

The Defense Ministry said: “The operation was carried out by a medical team led by Colonel Doctor Ahmed Al Jahuri, senior consultant and head of the orthopedics department of the Armed Forces hospital, and medical staff from the armed forces. orthopedics, anesthesia, operations, radiology and medical engineering departments.

Speaking of the surgery which used advanced technology, Dr Al Jahuri said, “The Armed Forces Hospital was able to use advanced augmented reality technology as a solution for the development of minimally invasive spine surgeries.

Dr Al Jahuri added, “In this technique, low dose 3D CT scans are combined with optical imaging with stationary cameras, resulting in the creation of a three-dimensional augmented reality display of the patient’s internal anatomy. , and this combined image acts as an exploration device that guides the surgeon in fixing the vertebrae with surgical screws in place.

“This helps us to conduct a precisely defined surgery and reduces the risk of injury to nearby sensitive tissues such as nerves and blood vessels,” he continued. “” Following this approach leads to increased clinical precision because the surgeon can be sure that the surgical instruments are in the right place before the operation and this helps the physician to reduce surgical risks, medical errors, pain and loss of blood, which leads to a patient recovery and reduced hospitalization, as well as medical complications and subsequent costs.

Technology is expected to play an important role in enabling surgeons to perform complex operations, especially in the area of ​​curvature of the spine. With the ability to tailor augmented reality to the surgeon’s needs, physicians can focus on what is happening right in front of them.

The technology also gives surgeons direct X-ray vision in anatomical areas that are not visible to the naked eye, making this new technology a mainstay of the future of surgery.

Ali bin Hamdan Al Ghafri, the patient who underwent the operation, said: “I suffered from pain in my spine, and after continuous examination at the armed forces hospital and necessary medical examinations, the results showed friction in some vertebrae in the spine. , and it was decided to perform surgery using augmented reality technology.

“I was informed of the details and steps of this procedure by the doctors involved in the operation, and what encouraged me to agree to perform the procedure was the presence of a reputable Omani medical team and efficiency, as well as what the Army Forces Hospital has in terms of modern advanced devices in the field of spinal surgery.

Praising the team who provided him with medical care, Al Ghafri also thanked His Majesty Sultan Haitham Bin Tarik for the attention given to the people of Oman.

Hanan bint Saif, who oversees the operating rooms at the hospital, said: “Spine operations are complex procedures that require the surgeon to be careful when treating the nerves and vessels connected to the spinal cord. spinal.

“Augmented reality technology is one of the latest technologies in spine surgery,” she added. “Around the world, many doctors have been able to perform this surgery using this technique. “
