Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie visits Afghan refugees in Pakistan

The Academy Award-wining actress arrived yesterday in Pakistan for a four-day visit to focus world attention on the plight of Afghan refugees. The 500 refugees who left Attock in the 35-vehicle convoy were all skilled carpet weavers carrying their talents back to their original homes in the northern Afghan provinces of Balkh and Jozan.The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said it expected up to 400,000 Afghans to repatriate this year, following 2.3 million who went home under the programme in the three previous years. Since 7 March, when this year’s programme began, some 55,065 have already gone home.The trip marks Ms. Jolie’s second visit to Pakistan in four years. This time she met with UNHCR staff, and talked with refugees as well as Government officials.”Pakistan has been hosting Afghan refugees for many, many years and UNHCR greatly appreciates it,” she said yesterday after meeting Pakistan’s Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz. “There is still much that needs to be done.” read more


Brock teaches the business of lemonade to future entrepreneurs

A freshly squeezed business idea from Brock University’s Goodman School of Business will help teach Niagara’s future entrepreneurs what it takes to turn lemons into lemonade.Goodman Lemonade is leading a Grade 4 class at Power Glen Public School through the process of building a for-profit business. After learning some entrepreneurship basics from Goodman student leaders, the Power Glen students have been planning and designing lemonade stands that will be set up at the Brock University Farmers Market from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 1 in Jubilee Court.“This is a novel way for our students to share their business knowledge with the next generation of leaders and it’s a great chance for Power Glen students to gain entrepreneurial skills through experiential learning,” says Goodman School of Business Interim Dean Barry Wright.Goodman Lemonade, which is supported by both the Goodman Student Engagement Office and BioLinc, Brock’s business incubator run by Goodman, is designed to teach the students how much planning goes into a one-day sale.With a maximum budget provided by the Goodman School of Business, the young students have spent the last few weeks carefully crafting their business strategies and making decisions on everything from the type of lemonade being served to the garnishes and colourful decorations adjourning their stands.Eight different lemonade stands will be on display at the Farmers Market Thursday as teams of four students from Jennifer Millin’s Grade 4 class compete for sales from Brock staff and faculty attending the weekly outdoor market.The team with the highest profit at the end of the sale will earn the chance to choose what their class will purchase collectively with the total profits.The project has students excitedly creating posters, making business decisions and calculating expenses while they count down the time to market day, says Millin.“We can’t wait until we can come to Brock University and put all of our entrepreneurial skills to good use,” she says.What: Goodman LemonadeWho: Power Glen Public School – Jennifer Millin’s Grade 4 studentsWhen: Thursday, June 1, 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.Where: Jubilee Court, Brock University read more

Piraeus stake sale a vote of confidence

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The transfer of the 4.64 percent stake that Portuguese group BCP held in the Piraeus Group to foreign investors was completed successfully on Wednesday, confirming the strong interest in the local banking sector.The sale was twice oversubscribed within just a few hours and some 80 investors, mostly from the US and Europe, acquired all the Piraeus Bank shares and warrants that BCP held. Among the buyers are institutional portfolios from Norway and others such as TT International, Third Point, Baupost and York Capital, as well as several hedge funds.The shares were transferred before the start of trading on the Athens Exchange yesterday at a price of 1.50 euros each while warrants were sold at 0.60 euros apiece, which entails an average discount of 16.7 percent. BCP collected 494 million euros from the sale of 235 million shares and as many warrants, having invested 400 million euros a few months ago to acquire them. When exercised, the warrants transferred will amount to a 20.1 percent stake in Piraeus Bank.Senior Piraeus officials told Kathimerini that they were very satisfied with the success of the transaction, stressing that the discount was relatively small when considering the fact that the price of the Piraeus stock had soared in recent weeks. They added that this constituted a major investment move as the shares transferred amount to one-third of the company’s free float. “It constitutes a significant step toward strengthening [Piraeus’s] presence in the capital markets,” read a group statement.Piraeus board sources added that the successful sale of the shares and the warrants to foreign investors is a vote of confidence not just in the Piraeus Group but also in the prospects of the Greek economy.The next major step for Piraeus is the share capital increase of its subsidiary, Geniki Bank, with an aim for the participation of a strategic investor. The group aims to turn Geniki into a specialized corporation for the restructuring of companies.last_img read more


Une imprimante 3D qui se sert de cellules souches comme encre

first_imgUne imprimante 3D qui se sert de cellules souches comme “encre”Des scientifiques ont réussi à concevoir une imprimante 3D capable de déposer des cellules souches embryonnaires humaines sans les endommager. Mieux encore, celles-ci conservent leurs propriétés qui les autorisent à se diviser en n’importe quel type de tissu humain.Les imprimantes 3D et leur possibilité n’ont pas fini de nous étonner ! Si des scientifiques étaient déjà parvenus à créer des tissus biologiques en se servant d’un tel procédé, la bio-impression vient de connaître une spectaculaire avancée. L’impression 3D consiste à fabriquer des objets en empilant une à une des couches de résine, de plastique ou d’un autre matériau.Ainsi, l’idée est rapidement venue de pouvoir remplacer le dit matériau par des cellules dans le but de fabriquer des structures organiques. Partie de là, une équipe de chercheurs a pu recréer en novembre dernier du cartilage qui, mis en place sur une souris, s’est révélé parfaitement fonctionnel. Parallèlement, d’autres expériences du même type ont été couronnées de succès avec des cellules souches embryonnaires (CSE) de rongeurs. Les CSE sont particulièrement intéressantes car elles sont pluripotentes, c’est-à-dire qu’elles sont en mesure de se différencier en n’importe quel tissu du corps humain. Or, si l’impression 3D de CSE chez l’Homme fonctionne également, les cellules sont plus fragiles que celles retrouvées chez la souris. Néanmoins, des chercheurs sont parvenus à surmonter cette difficulté. En effet, des scientifiques de l’Heriot-Watt University, en Ecosse, ont publié une étude dans la revue Biofabrication, dans laquelle ils indiquent avoir réussi à épargné la quasi-totalité des cellules souches humaines tout en leur permettant de garder leurs propriétés initiales. Un premier pas vers l’impression d’organes humains Pour cela, ils ont mis au point une imprimante 3D, pilotée par ordinateur et fonctionnant avec deux types “d’encres biologiques” : la première contient des cellules souches baignées dans un milieu de culture servant à les alimenter, la seconde ne contient que ce milieu. Pour contrôler la quantité de matière à créer, les chercheurs ont fait appel à un système à air comprimé qui leur permet de déposer uniquement quelques cellules s’il le faut. Avec la superposition des couches, ces dernières se regroupent ensuite en amas sphériques dont la taille est parfaitement maîtrisée.Un jour après l’opération, plus de 95% des CSE étaient encore vivantes, et 89% des cellules résistaient toujours 48 h plus tard, le tout en ayant conservé leur pluripotence. “A notre connaissance, c’est la première fois que ces cellules sont imprimées en 3D. La technique va nous permettre de créer des modèles plus précis de tissus humains. Sur le long terme, nous envisageons que cette technologie soit davantage développée pour créer des organes en 3D viables pour une implantation médicale à partir des propres cellules du patient”, a expliqué le Dr Will Shu cité par le Daily Mail. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Toutefois, nous sommes encore loin de la création d’organes complets à l’aide d’imprimantes 3D car les organes sont dotés d’une vascularisation importante et complexe qu’il n’est pas possible de créer artificiellement à l’heure actuelle. Reste que des tissus artificiels fabriqués rapidement et à moindre coût pourraient servir à imiter des organes, de quoi tester des médicaments, par exemple, ce qui épargnerait les tests sur les animaux. “C’est un premier pas. Il y a des progrès formidables dans la technologie des cellules souches pour transformer la cellule en ce que vous voulez”, a ajouté le scientifique.(crédits photo : Heriot-Watt University)Le 7 février 2013 à 20:12 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

How to stream video games for fun and profit

first_imgWhat is it that separates a true geek from a wanna-be? In our book, it’s participation. Normies go see superhero movies, play video games, and enjoy all of the fruits of geek culture, but we’re the ones who actually make it. An important aspect of the geek personality is being able to produce your own cool ideas, and in this series we’ll give you all the tools you need to get in on the action.This week: how to stream video games for fun and profit.If there’s one thing that you’ve probably been told over and over about your gaming habit, it’s that you’ll never be able to make a living off it. Well, that all changed a few years ago. Now, a thriving subculture of people are broadcasting their digital adventures to the world and making a pretty penny off it. It’s called streaming, and it’s huge. Some of the biggest names in the industry get tens of thousands of viewers during their sessions, and advertising revenue means money goes into their pocket for each and every one of them. Streamers play all genres of games from all eras, and the most popular have carved out healthy niches for themselves.You don’t even have to be good at games to stream — although it certainly helps! Viewers are attracted to strong personalities, humor, intelligent analysis, and skill as much as boobs. Combine a few of those and you’re well on your way to streaming success.SuppliesThe first thing you’ll need is, of course, a stable internet connection. There’s nothing that turns viewers off a stream faster than lousy frame rate and audio drops, so make sure that your streaming machine is running directly into your modem or router — not over WiFi. Secondly, you’ll need some streaming software. There are numerous options on the market at a variety of price ranges. One popular free option is OBS, which you can get here. Xsplit has a free ad-supported version, and many professional streamers find it worth it to pay the $25 quarterly license fee. That lets you do things like transmit Skype feeds and push to projectors.A microphone is essential so you can give commentary on your game, react to people in the chat, and build your brand. If you’re using your computer’s on-board mic, wear headphones so you don’t pick up game audio on it. Most streamers choose a headset mic, which you can get at an affordable price. You don’t necessarily need a webcam, but having viewers able to see your face as you play and react to a game can be a huge addition to your stream. People will be watching not just for the games you play — dozens if not hundreds of streamers will be playing the same games — but the personality you bring to the table. If you’re going to be streaming from any console besides an Xbox One or PS4 (both of which support Twitch natively), you’ll need a capture card to transmit that output to the internet.Finally, you need to pick your streaming service. Right now, the dominant player in the market is Twitch. It has the largest viewer base and the most well-established business model. That said, there are some restrictions on content that may drive you to other competitors like Hitbox.Before you startRight off the bat: you probably won’t have many (if any) viewers on your first stream. That’s fine! Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither was PewDiePie’s Hollywood mansion. Before you go live, though, it’s important to run some tests on your setup to make sure that the viewers you have get an optimal experience.OBS lets you record sample streams and play them back to test your setup. Here’s what’s important to look for. Audio balance: This might be the trickiest thing to get right. You want to make sure that viewers can hear you over the in-game sound, but you don’t want the feed to just be your voice (or any background noise like crying babies or partying neighbors). Game resolution and clarity: You want to make sure your screen is casting clearly so the gameplay is featured, and you want to make the shot of yourself doesn’t obscure any important part of the gameplay, like the HUD. Game familiarity: If people tune into your stream, they don’t want to watch you struggling with display resolutions. Make sure that the game boots and is playable so you don’t waste anybody’s time.When you’re ready to stream for the first time, reach out on your social networks to people you know, and ask them to tune in and share. The vast majority probably won’t, but the few that do will form the core of your support.Islands in the streamDeep breaths. It’s time for your first live broadcast.Set up the stream, send out another notification on social media, and then get to it. It’s going to feel weird at first, but there are a few things to keep in mind that will help you through.This is a performance: Remember that. What your viewers are seeing is a performance, not reality. So, consider ways to make it the best performance it can be. You’re going to want to talk a lot.Don’t censor yourself much: Anything that you normally would think rather than say while gaming is worth saying on stream. If you have a cam on, make sure your face is expressive. People are watching to connect with you, so let them.Recognize the audience: That’s what the stream chat is for. People will put all kinds of nonsense in that box, and you want to reward them for it. An engaged audience is a loyal audience. Responding to their comments on the air is a great way to develop that rapport and help you think on your feet.Keep your cool: Stream chat can be a notoriously lawless place, and randos love to razz streamers, especially inexperienced ones. Take their comments with good grace and move on.Finally, pick a good ending point for your stream. Try to keep it short and sweet, so viewers don’t get bored, but make sure you give them a good chunk of content. Always leave them wanting more – and when you go offline, let any viewers know when you plan to stream again.Getting biggerSo you’re up and running with your stream, playing games, interacting with the chat, and having a good time. Now, you want to make people smash that subscribe button and get your numbers up. There are two parts to that equation: acquiring viewers and making them want to stay.Use YouTube as a vital resource: Being able to upload video for free is a gift, and archiving your material is a good thing to do. That’s not saying you should be uploading every single stream, though. Now’s the time where you want to selectively edit out the best moments of your stream to make individual highlights. Keep these short and sweet — under a minute is a good target — and make sure to include your stream information in the comments (and annotations). Several websites do regular roundups of highlight videos like these, which is a great way to get your content in front of new audiences. If you think you have something good, don’t be afraid to send it out.Push alerts to your YouTube videos via Twitch: When your stream is live, use this strategy to alert people that you’ve gone live. Anybody watching your videos can, with a single click, tune into your live feed.Do giveaways or raffles: The prospect of getting some kind of swag is a powerful motivator, and many streamers use giveaways to fill their channels. If you use Google Chrome, there’s even a free extension that lets you pick a random viewer with a single click.Whatever method you use to bring viewers in, it’s your content that’s going to keep them there. Make sure to put energy and effort into every stream. Think of it like the old days of TV, when getting together to watch a show at the same time each week was a ritual. You want that same feeling from your viewers.Make some moneyThe vast majority of streamers do it as a hobby, nothing more. It’s a way to share the games they love with an audience. If you can build up a fan following, though, it’s very possible to turn it into something that pays.Monetize your Twitch account: You need an average concurrent viewer count over 500 people (that means 500 people need to be generally watching your streams at any time), as well as a commitment to stream at least three times a week. However, these aren’t hard and fast rules, and if you can demonstrate other factors that might make you a good investment, they might let you in.Monetize YouTube videos: It’s important to note that some publishers don’t allow you to get revenue from footage of their games — Nintendo is probably the biggest example. Thankfully, most PC publishers are well aware that streamers represent a huge free marketing opportunity and let you claim your share.Sponsorships: Many companies partner with high-profile streamers and pay them to use or promote their products on stream. These sponsorships typically aren’t super lucrative, but they can be a nice way to pull in a little extra scratch.Most importantly, have fun. If you’re not enjoying your stream, it’s highly doubtful that anybody else is going to. Don’t let the pressure of subscribers and viewers suck the fun out of playing games.Some useful resources for streamers:/r/Twitch on Reddit is a supportive community of streamers at all levels of successTwitch Tips is a wide-ranging resource that covers capture devices, overlays, and other technical issueslast_img read more

Researchers Hope to MassProduce Tiny Robots

first_img Explore further Mini robots to undertake major tasks? 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. “I look upon them more like a manufacturing way for future robots,” Erik Edqvist of Uppsala University in Sweden told “There are cool experiments going on with flying insects, swimming robots and so on. But it is time for the miniaturized robots to leave the research laboratories and find useful applications. That is where this work fits in. It is an attempt (with a somewhat small budget) to try to build robots in a mass-fabricated way.”As this was the first test of this fabrication technique, the researchers noted that they encountered some fabrication problems. The single largest problem was to connect the naked integrated circuit to the flexible printed circuit board by the conductive adhesive. Also, some solar cells did not stick due to weak adhesion. At this stage in the production process, the robots were folded manually, but the researchers hope to design a tool to enable a faster and more accurate alignment when folding. Many of these complications could likely be corrected, with the important result being that the microrobots can be assembled using a surface mounting machine, whereas prior robots have usually been manually assembled with a soldering iron. Images of the robots showing their size proportional to various objects. Image credit: Edqvist, et al. In the future, the researchers hope to move from building academic prototypes to manufacturing the robot on a commercial basis, which is necessary for overcoming some of the technical issues. By mass-producing swarms of robots, the loss of some robotic units will be negligible in terms of cost, functionality, and time, yet still achieve a high level of performance. Currently, the researchers hope to find funding to reach these goals.“Right now the robots need a new ASIC [application-specific integrated circuit] and some other redesigns to be able to work properly,” Edqvist said.

Microeng. 19 (2009) 075011 (11pp).Copyright 2009 All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed in whole or part without the express written permission of ( — Tiny robots the size of a flea could one day be mass-produced, churned out in swarms and programmed for a variety of applications, such as surveillance, micromanufacturing, medicine, cleaning, and more. In an effort to reach this goal, a recent study has demonstrated the initial tests for fabricating microrobots on a large scale. Citation: Researchers Hope to Mass-Produce Tiny Robots (2009, August 28) retrieved 18 August 2019 from An illustration of the I-SWARM robot: (1) solar cell, (2) IR-communication module, (3) an ASIC, (4) capacitors, (5) locomotion module. Image credit: Edqvist, et al. The researchers, from institutes in Sweden, Spain, Germany, Italy, and Switzerland, explain that their building approach marks a new paradigm of robot development in microrobotics. The technique involves integrating an entire robot – with communication, locomotion, energy storage, and electronics – in different modules on a single circuit board. In the past, the single-chip robot concept has presented significant limitations in design and manufacturing. However, instead of using solder to mount electrical components on a printed circuit board as in the conventional method, the researchers use conductive adhesive to attach the components to a double-sided flexible printed circuit board using surface mount technology. The circuit board is then folded to create a three-dimensional robot. The resulting robots are very small, with their length, width, and height each measuring less than 4 mm. The robots are powered by a solar cell on top, and move by three vibrating legs. A fourth vibrating leg is used as a touch sensor. As the researchers explain, a single microrobot by itself is a physically simple individual. But many robots communicating with each other using infrared sensors and interacting with their environment can form a group that is capable of establishing swarm intelligence to generate more complex behavior.

Using built-in robotics, discs are transported one at a time into either single or dual optical drives. After data is burned, the discs are transported to a high-speed, high-resolution full-color disc printer. The process repeats itself for up to 100 discs per job.Bravo 4200 features the latest in inkjet printing technology from Funai Electric Company Ltd. Just one ink cartridge needs to be replaced instead of four tanks for CMYK, simplifying operation and on-going maintenance. This is especially important in applications such as picture archiving and communication system (PACS)/DICOM systems in hospitals, police car video archival and other mission-critical applications where running out of even one color of ink shuts down the entire process. It also makes it easier to maintain just a single SKU instead of four as on previous models from Primera and others.Features of the new Bravo 4200-series (which features eight models) include:USB 3.0 – delivers the fastest possible recording speeds on CD-R, DVD-R and BD-R media;One high-yield, tri-color ink cartridge that delivers low ink cost per disc;4800 dpi print quality; andCompatible with Windows 7/8/10+ and Mac OS X 10.7 (or higher)For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Information Technology | June 25, 2019 Barco Launches Smart Solution for Remote Radiology Reading Barco’s new remote radiology reading solution ensures dependable imaging when radiologists are working outside the ho read more News | Remote Viewing Systems | July 16, 2019 Anatomage Releases Anatomage Cloud Platform Anatomage Inc. released an update to the Anatomage Cloud platform that allows medical and dental professionals to… read more Technology | PACS Accessories | January 18, 2017 Primera Introduces Bravo 4200-Series Disc Publishers New automated disc duplicators and printers make it fast and easy to make multiple copies of CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray Discs News | PACS | May 22, 2019 Brazil’s Santa Casa Hospital System Chooses Carestream for Unified Diagnostic Workflow Santa Casa de Misericordia has selected Carestream to replace its legacy diagnostic workflow technology across all… read more News | Remote Viewing Systems | June 04, 2019 Client Outlook’s eUnity Smartviewer Selected by Duke University Health System Client Outlook Inc. announced that Duke University Health System has implemented eUnity for enterprise viewing… read more Related Content News | Remote Viewing Systems | May 01, 2019 University of Toronto Partners With IMS for Emergency Radiology Simulation International Medical Solutions (IMS) and the University of Toronto Department of Medical Imaging have signed a… read morelast_img read more

Masters Class athletes to compete in international championship

first_imgUnlike the occasional marathon runner or recreational soccer player, Masters Class athletes are generally serious and committed, training year-round and traveling from all over the world to participate in the games. Costa Rica boasts the largest number of participants, with 187 registrants, followed by Mexico with 111 and the United States with 85. While smaller Masters Class events regularly take place in Costa Rica, the NCCWMA Championship is a major event: The full roster includes 615 athletes, most of whom are 35-65 years old.While any city north of South America was qualified to host the NCCWMA Championship, San José won the bid, possibly because of new and attractive facilities of the National Stadium, completed only three years ago. All events will take place in and around the stadium, where three action-packed days of shot put, relays, races, and triples jumps will unfold, plus countless other activities.One event will particularly embrace the championship’s Costa Rican setting. The 10K race will thread its way through San José, cutting through residential neighborhoods and looping through San Rafael de Escazú. See what this looks like the following NCCWMA video: Related posts:Master’s Track championship kicks off in San José 10 images from Costa Rica’s hard-fought victory over Paraguay Sloth Kong says ‘Thank you, La Sele’ Costa Rica set to host track and field championships The NCCWMA Championship takes place Aug. 21-24 at The National Stadium, La Sabana Park, San José. For a full calendar of events, visit the 2014 NCCWMA Championship page. Facebook Commentscenter_img They can sprint, hurdle, and throw hammers. They can pole vault, hurl javelins and discuses, run a 10K, and splash through a steeplechase. For the pentathlon alone, they can ride horses, swim, fence, fire rifles, and run cross-country.Based on these abilities, you might expect a pack of young athletes, fresh out of high school. But the stars of the NCCWMA Championship are all 30 years and older – and some are well into their 80s.NCCWMA stands for North, Central American and Caribbean World Masters Athletics Championship, and the event is like a mini-Olympics for the Western Hemisphere, starring only “Masters Class” athletes. Last held in New Brunswick, Canada, in 2012, the NCCWMA championship will descend on the National Stadium in La Sabana Park on Thursday, Aug. 21.“We’ve got an athlete from Japan, two or three from the Netherlands, people from all over the world,” said Jim Procter, a 74-year-old runner, during a conversation with The Tico Times last week. Originally from Texas, Procter moved to Costa Rica 40 years ago, but he didn’t become seriously involved in running until he sold a hotel he owned and had to occupy his time.“I’m addicted,” admitted Procter, who visits La Sabana’s race track at 6 a.m., five mornings a week, to train. “You think you’re 30 years old, and you’re not. Your mind says yes, but your body says, ‘Forget it.’ But I’m pretty sure I’m going to have a better time this year than last year.”While Proctor is only one of the many Master Class athletes in Costa Rica, he is also driven and competitive, and boasts a big personality. He is a major proponent of Masters Class athletics and has strong opinions about its health benefits. The Tico Times met with Procter last year to talk about his experience as a mature athlete.

NATO 202 Afghan bases closed more to come

first_img Early signs of cataracts in your parents and how to help Comments   Share   Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – NATO has closed more than 200 bases in Afghanistan and transferred nearly 300 others to local forces, a concrete step toward its 2014 target of handing over security responsibility, NATO officers said Sunday.All 202 closed facilities were small, ranging from isolated checkpoints to bases of a dozen to 300 soldiers, said Lt. Col. David Olson, a NATO forces spokesman. Most of the closures have been along the country’s main highways, spread across nearly every province, Olson said.

Don Shooter shows health improvement Top Stories Another 282 bases of the same size have been handed over to the Afghan government, he said.That means international forces now operate about half as many bases in Afghanistan as in October of 2011, when they ran about 800 bases.The closures are part of the large-scale drawdown over this year and next as international forces prepare to transfer security tasks to the Afghan government at the end of 2014. Most of the troops that are leaving are American, and therefore most of the closures are U.S. bases.“As our Afghan security force partners take more responsibility for their own security, more bases will be closing and transitioning,” said Brig. Gen. Steven Shapiro, who is heading up the operation to return or hand over U.S. equipment. He said that so far the U.S. government has given about 20,000 pieces of equipment worth about $3 million to the Afghan government, ranging from chairs to large generators.“Our footprint here will continue to shrink,” Shapiro told reporters at a briefing about how non-military equipment is being processed as numbers of American forces decrease.The U.S. started drawing down forces from a peak of nearly 103,000 last year and plans to have 68,000 troops in Afghanistan by October.
