In particular, McKay said the bank is interested in working with new payments technologies, as well as in automating some of its back office processes in order to trim costs.McKay also said many of the bank’s competitors are technology firms that have entered the financial services space but aren’t subject to the same regulations as banks, said McKay. These new rivals can operate at a lower cost but risk reducing the stability of the country’s financial system, he added.“Many of these entrants are excellent competitors — innovative, driven and responsive to their clients — but they may also distort the financial system with unintended risks that regulators cannot clearly see,” said McKay.His comments were similar to remarks last month by the CEO of TD Bank.TD chief Bharat Masrani calls for oversight of tech players in bankingIs TD Bank’s new chief executive Bharat Masrani notching up the bank’s risk appetite?TD chief executive Bharat Masrani called on financial regulators to introduce rules governing new entrants such as digital payment providers and alternative lenders. Masrani said non-traditional players who don’t have to abide by the same regulations that banks are subject to have a competitive advantage.Tech companies Apple and Google have been wading into the financial services space by creating digital wallets that allow customers to make payments using their smartphones. By facilitating money transfers, technologies such as Apple Pay and Google Wallet insert themselves in between banks and their customers, weakening the relationship. TORONTO — Royal Bank chief executive Dave McKay says RBC will need to work with early-stage companies — even those looking to snatch market share from the traditional banks — in order to thrive in an increasingly digital world.“We need large organizations in the public sector and business, RBC included, to work closely with early-stage companies, even the ones trying to disrupt us, to support, mentor and motivate their progress,” McKay told shareholders Friday at RBC’s annual meeting in Toronto.The bank will need to be part of a “thriving ecosystem” of entrepreneurs in order to innovate and “build the bank of the future,” he said.Kevin Van Paassen/Bloomberg
NEW DELHI — On the eve of the biggest political change in Indian-administered Kashmir in decades, authorities shut down internet access, mobile and landline phones and cable TV.In the communications void since revoking the autonomy of its only Muslim-majority state, India has circulated photos and videos with rousing Kashmiri folk music evoking 20th century wartime newsreels.India is asserting the changes have widespread acceptance in Kashmir — a portrayal that hasn’t stood up to scrutiny.The government called one news video fake then conceded it wasn’t. Another set of images depicted men and boys kneeling in prayer outside mosques. But some of the region’s largest mosques were closed, and some of those images were mislabeled.Emily Schmall, The Associated Press
The couple said they turned to IVF after years of trying to have children (Science and Photo library)(BBC) An Asian couple who tried to conceive through IVF has claimed that a mix-up at a California fertility clinic left them pregnant with the wrong children.A lawsuit filed by the couple in New York states that the couple was shocked to give birth to two boys who were not of Asian descent, US media reported.The lawsuit says DNA tests confirmed the children were not related to the couple and they relinquished custody.The fertility clinic has not commented on the allegations.The couple – identified in the lawsuit only as AP and YZ to minimise the “embarrassment and humiliation” – say they tried for years to get pregnant before spending more than $100,000 (£80,000) on the IVF, or in vitro fertilisation, including medication, laboratory fees, travel and other costs.IVF is the process of fertilising an egg outside of the woman’s body, before returning it to the womb to grow and develop.The lawsuit, filed in the Eastern District of New York last week, accuses CHA Fertility and two men identified as its co-owners and directors of offences including medical malpractice and intentional infliction of emotional distress.It reportedly notes that after giving birth on 30 March, the couple “was shocked to see that the babies they were told were formed using both of their genetic material did not appear to be”.There were earlier signs that things were amiss when a scan revealed they were expecting boys, despite the fact that the doctors had said they did not use male embryos during the treatment.Doctors reportedly told the couple that the scan was inaccurate, before they went on to have the baby boys in April. In addition to not being related to the couple, the children were not related to each other, according to the lawsuit.On its website, CHA Fertility says it delivers the “highest degree of personalized care…with the utmost sense of duty”.The BBC has contacted the company for comment.

The Global Mining Guidelines Group (GMG) says it has published the Guideline for Implementing Short Interval Control (SIC) in Underground Mining Operations.SIC is a structured system in which data from mining processes are periodically reviewed and action is taken in response to them, GMG explained. “This guideline provides a roadmap to increase the speed and likelihood of success during SIC implementation while avoiding common pitfalls.”Specifically, the publication presents a conceptual model of what SIC could look like that includes an operational framework, detailed workflows, and an outline of data enablement at various levels of maturity, according to GMG.SIC has only recently begun to be used in underground mining, although it has a long history in the manufacturing industry.GMG said: “One challenge in implementing SIC is tailoring it to the operation at hand because underground mining conditions can be unpredictable, but the guideline offers mining stakeholders a base of knowledge of how it can be applied.”Greg Sandblom, Operation and Business Technology Lead at Sudbury Integrated Nickel Operations, a Glencore Company, says the guideline “can provide a valuable reference to mining companies during all phases of SIC deployments at existing mines or new mine projects”.He continued: “It can effectively act as a checkpoint to validate that lessons learned and experience from leaders across the mining industry are applied to their implementations.”Lisa Önnerlov, Development Engineer – Industrial Design at Boliden, said there was potential for the application of the guideline for those already using a SIC system.“Even though we have been working with SIC for many years, we still have a lot to improve,” she said. “We face challenges like refining the overall coordination and to take advantage of new technological possibilities and make it useful in reality. We hope that this guideline will be a tool for both benchmarking and as a common reference in collaboration with other mining companies working with SIC.”SIC has the potential to increase productivity and lower costs, according to GMG. As the practice becomes more common, it will, in turn, become increasingly accessible, according to Gordon Fellows, President of Fellows Mining and Digital Solutions.“Achieving the greatest benefit from SIC comes from monitoring and controlling the shortest interval, but results are possible even at lower levels of maturity and at lower cost,” he said. “As technology evolves, it will make it simpler and less expensive to reach higher levels of maturity.”One highlight of the process of developing the guideline, according to Liv Carroll, Senior Principal, Mining Transformation and Applied Intelligence at Accenture, has been the input from and cooperation between various stakeholders in the mining industry.Carroll said there had been “effective collaboration between operators, service providers, consultants and technology specialists alongside the GMG team; our industry working as one for the benefit of all”.She added: “In working together, we have drawn on a breadth of global and diverse experience to amalgamate leading practices into the guideline considering all levels of maturity and allowing for future evolution.”Looking ahead, implementing SIC offers great potential for positive change in the industry because it facilitates better planning, quicker decisions, increased production, lower costs and creates a safer working environment, according to GMG.GMG Chair, Michelle Ash, says: “I am very excited to see the publication of the SIC guideline because it is not only the culmination of a lot of work from many people, but also a fundamental building block for the transformation of our industry. I am looking forward to visiting mines post implementation and seeing the case studies that arise from their efforts.”

Les requins tigres et bouledogues, des migrateurs confirmés ? L’Institut de recherche pour le développement (IRD) a dévoilé, le 11 octobre, les premiers résultats issus des marquages des requins tigres et des requins bouledogues, dans le cadre du programme CHARC. Ils confirment entre autres que les requins tigres sont capables de migrer sur de longues distances.Les requins dévoilent un peu plus de leurs secrets et de leurs habitudes. Il y a quelques jours, l’Institut de recherche pour le développement (IRD) a publié quelques résultats issus des marquages des requins tigres et des requins bouledogues. Le programme CHARC (Connaissances de l’écologie et de l’Habitat de deux espèces de Requins Côtiers sur la Côte Ouest de la Réunion) vise notamment à répondre à certaines questions concernant les squales, comme par exemple savoir où ils vont lorsqu’ils ne sont plus détectés dans le réseau des stations d’écoute.Les premiers résultats qui répondent en partie à cette question viennent d’être dévoilés. Ils sont issus de la “re-capture d’un requin tigre femelle de 3 mètres”, le 28 août, et de la “récupération des balises attachées à quelques requins permettant de suivre leurs déplacements à longue distance”, indique l’IRD cité par Ipreunion.com. Ces résultats confirment notamment la capacité des requins tigres à migrer sur de longues distances. En effet, le squale femelle a été pêché à Madagascar, à plus de 2.000 km de l’endroit où elle avait été marquée par l’IRD. “Il est davantage plausible que cette migration soit le trait d’un comportement commun aux membres de l’espèce” qu’un cas isolé, estime l’Institut. “La circulation des requins tigres dans le sud de l’Océan Indien semble donc établie”, indiquant t-il encore. “Les requins tigres visitant nos côtes feraient ainsi partie d’une vaste population ouverte et non pas d’une population locale réunionnaise, fermée, sans échanges avec les autres spécimens de l’espèce”.Des requins bouledogues migrateurs ?À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Quant aux requins bouledogues, on estimait jusque-là qu’ils restaient près des côtes. Pourtant, la balise d’un de ces squales (un mâle de 3 mètres), marqué six mois plus tôt, a été détectée largement au sud de l’île de La Réunion, entre 150 et 450 km au large des côtes. “L’information est exceptionnelle car ce déplacement océanique est l’un des plus longs jamais enregistré chez cette espèce”, rapporte l’IRD.”Pour l’heure, nous n’avons pas de preuves de la capacité migratrice de cette espèce, mais cette découverte démontre que le bouledogue est capable de s’éloigner du milieu côtier et de nager en milieu océanique”, contrairement à ce qui était imaginé. Mais il ne s’agit là que de premiers résultats qui seront suivis par d’autres d’ici peu. D’après l’IRD, “la collecte des autres données concernant les conditions environnementales et biologiques de l’écosystème marin réunionnais se termine dans un mois. Les résultats sont en train d’être rassemblés et vérifiés et seront ensuite traités et analysés au cours de l’année à venir” pour en tirer davantage de conclusions.Le 16 octobre 2013 à 10:01 • Maxime Lambert
Pourquoi les nuages deviennent-ils plus sombres quand il va pleuvoir ?Quiconque a déjà levé le nez le ciel avant une averse a pu constater le phénomène : lorsqu’il va pleuvoir, les nuages ont tendance à s’assombrir devenant gris voire noir. Mais pourquoi changent-ils de couleur ? Explications. Le soleil se cache, votre champ de vision s’assombrit brusquement, vous levez les yeux et découvrez un ciel noir et menaçant chargé en cumulonimbus. Vous le savez : la pluie n’est pas loin ! Mais pourquoi des nuages noirs apparaissent-ils dans le ciel quand il va pleuvoir ? Pour le comprendre, il faut d’abord revenir sur la formation même des nuages. Une partie de l’eau présente sur Terre, par exemple dans les fleuves ou les océans, s’évapore sous la chaleur des rayons du soleil. L’air qui nous entoure est ainsi chargé d’eau sous sa forme gazeuse, la fameuse vapeur d’eau. Or, quand l’air près du sol se réchauffe, il commence à s’élever dans le ciel entrainant avec lui cette dernière jusqu’à une altitude de plus en plus froide. Tandis que l’air se refroidit, la vapeur d’eau se condense pour former de toutes petites gouttelettes très légères voire des cristaux de glace qui vont peu à peu s’unir et rester en suspension pour former des nuages. Lorsque le ciel est chargé de nuages blancs, le risque d’averses est présent mais pas imminent. En effet, dans cette configuration, les gouttelettes et cristaux formant les nuages sont suffisamment fins pour refléter la lumière et donner cette impression de blancheur.Des nuages qui absorbent la lumière À lire aussiPourquoi l’eau des océans est-elle salée ?Cependant, quand la taille de ces gouttes augmente et que les nuages en sont davantage chargés, elles absorbent plus de lumière au détriment de la terre et des humains qui en reçoivent moins. Résultat : nous avons l’impression que la base des nuages est gris foncé ou noire. La suite logique de ce phénomène est que les gouttes deviennent si volumineuses et lourdes qu’elles finissent par tomber, sous forme depluie, de grêle ou de neige.D’un point de vue météorologique, les spécialistes distinguent deux types majeurs de nuage associés à la pluie : les nimbostratus, des couches de nuages de pluie qui ne produisent pas d’éclairs, et les cumulonimbus, des nuages plus épais qui peuvent générer des éclairs, du tonnerre et des pluies torrentielles. Les deux noms sont issus du latin nimbus, signifiant “nuage de pluie” ou “pluie d’orage”. Le 27 novembre 2018 à 11:00 • Emmanuel Perrin
Washington could be on the brink of requiring all school districts to teach comprehensive sexual health education, including lessons on birth control, healthy relationships and consent.Senate Bill 5395, requested by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, passed by a vote of 28 to 21 late last month in the Senate. It’s currently stuck in the House Education Committee, The Stranger reported last week. Rep. Sharon Tomiko Santos, D-Seattle and chair of the House Education Committee, has not scheduled the bill for a vote on the floor. The cutoff to do so is Wednesday.Proponents of the bill say it could help turn the tide of sexual assault rates among Washington teenagers, citing research that suggests students who have access to comprehensive sexual health education are healthier and less likely to be sexually assaulted than their peers who don’t.Opponents, including Vancouver’s Rep. Vicki Kraft, a Republican, say the bill undercuts family values, and that conversations about reproductive health should happen in the home.The bill, if approved, would phase in required sexual health education requirements for all grades through Sept. 1, 2021.Current mandates limitedCurrent law mandates only that schools offer lessons on HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted disease prevention from fifth grade onward. But schools can choose to provide more comprehensive sex education. If they do, existing law requires that the information must be age-appropriate, medically accurate and appropriate for students regardless of gender, race, disability or sexual orientation. Lessons must also include information about abstinence and other forms of contraception.

However, one New Jersey-based commuter has bolstered his wellbeing by skipping the traditional travel traps and building his own foldable boat.Tom Lutz (pictured), an engineer who works for technology giant Google, commutes daily from his home in New Jersey to Google’s offices in Chelsea, Manhattan. Typically, this journey may be fraught with rush hour traffic, however Lutz has invented a creative way to skip the travel stress and meander to work at his own pace.Lutz starts his commute on a folding Brompton bike, towing behind him a small folding boat. Called a Fliptail Collapsible Dinghy, the boat is Lutz’s own design. Once he gets to the Hudson River, he sets up the boat and stows his bike on board, traversing the second half of his work journey by water.Here at Employee Benefits, we think this sounds like a very scenic and peaceful start to the day, as well as a good way to fit in some exercise.

Maryland-based healthcare organisation Anne Arundel Medical Center (AAMC) has increased its minimum rate of pay from $13 (£9.97) an hour to $15 (£11.51) an hour.The pay increase, effective from 20 January 2019, will benefit approximately 1,100 of the organisation’s 4,850 employees.Julie McGovern, vice president and chief human resources officer at AAMC, said: “An investment in our workforce is an investment in the vitality of our health system. We’ve been working towards this move for the past two years.“We believe in caring for our caregivers, which creates a positive workplace but also a great place to receive care, as every employee plays a vital role in the care of our patients and their families.”AAMC’s new pay rate exceeds the US’ federal minimum wage of $7.25 (£5.56) an hour as well as Maryland’s statutory minimum wage of $10.10 (£7.75) an hour.McGovern added: “Increasing the minimum wage demonstrates our commitment to our employees, their families and our patients. It’s a reflection of our organisation’s dedication to being the best place to work in healthcare.”

© 2014 Phys.org (Phys.org) —The KickSat project is getting very close to a launch date. Originally scheduled to go up Sunday March 16th, the Kickstarter project organized by Zachary Manchester, has been postponed. It is now scheduled to be boosted into space by a SpaceX rocket sometime between March 30 and April 2. KickSat co-creator, team launches new ‘Pocket Spacecraft’ project on Kickstarter Explore further This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. The KickSat will be sent into space in a Dragon capsule aboard a SpaceX rocket (the rest of the cargo will go on to the International Space Station). Shortly after liberation from its capsule, KickSat will begin spinning freely in space and turning on its radios. Sometime later the Sprites will be spun off into space where they will begin performing whatever they have been individually programmed to do. Each will have a gyro, a magnometer, solar collectors, radio, sensors and a chip to run preprogrammed code. Data from each Sprite will be broadcast back to Earth on a shared radio frequency—each has been programed to wake-up, perform its work, then go back to sleep, on a random time-table to reduce the number of Sprites talking at the same time. Anyone who wishes to do so can purchase a small amount of equipment (antenna, noise amplifier, software, etc.) to listen in as well. Those on the project will be listening and collecting data from a site in Ithaca, New York. The KickSat project is as much a concept as a physical entity, it consists of a box that looks like a CD jukebox (it’s also about the same size) and holds what are called Sprites—small (about the size of a saltine cracker and weighing just 5 grams) flat satellites. Once in space, the KickSat will spin around and eject the 104 Sprites it will be carrying, where they will operate independently 200 miles above the Earth for a few days to possibly a week before burning up upon reentry. The project is an attempt to give ordinary people access to space science by allowing for launching very tiny, inexpensive satellites, with costs spread across hundreds of others that are nearly identical to it.The KickSat project was first launched in 2011 as a Kickstarter project, and received more than double its goal of $30,000. Backers got their names engraved on one of the KickSat panels (which have been published on the Kickstarter page) and if they donated enough, their own Sprite. Owners were given firmware development kits to allow for programing functionality.
