Federal agency approves Papa Murphy’s sale

Posted on | 2 Comments

first_imgPapa Murphy’s is making progress toward finalizing a $190 million deal to be acquired by Canadian casual restaurant conglomerate MTY Food Group, the parent company of brands such as Baja Fresh, Taco Time and TCBY.The Federal Trade Commission posted a notice granting approval of the deal on April 19, and federal filings from both companies in the past few weeks shed new light on the process, including the negotiations that led to the sale price of $6.45 per share.MTY filed a Tender Offer Statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 25, which includes a time line of the discussions between the two companies. The process began on Oct. 23, when a representative of North Point Advisors contacted MTY CEO Eric Lefebvre about a potential acquisition.Papa Murphy’s had hired North Point to help it conduct a review of “strategic alternatives.” The take-and-bake pizza company publicly announced the review process in a Nov. 7 call with shareholders, and mentioned the possibility of selling the business, but did not elaborate.Throughout the negotiating process, Papa Murphy’s and MTY each made repeated requests in pursuit of a specific objective: Papa Murphy’s wanted a higher sale price, and MTY wanted a guaranteed period of exclusivity in which Papa Murphy’s would not solicit other bids.last_img read more

first_imgTottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino admits that Liverpool were the better team after losing 2-1 at home on Saturday.Liverpool made it five wins in five matches with a 2-1 victory at Wembley, thanks to goals by Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino. While Tottenham were condemned their second defeat in a row after losing 2-1 away at Watford.Pochettino believes the match could have gone differently but conceded to a ‘better’ Liverpool side“They were better, we competed, and we were close,” he told Sky Sports.“The last action was crazy because it was a penalty, Mane on Son. We could be talking after the match in a different way.Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolVirgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“But they were better, there is nothing to say. Of course, I am disappointed with the result but we need to keep working and improving. It’s only early in the season but we’ve improved a lot.“It was difficult and today was a competitive game, you can win, you can lose. But we need to keep working, we are disappointed with the result but there are a lot of games ahead.“It’s easy to criticise the performance after losing the game and conceding many chances but, from the beginning since we beat Manchester United the reality has been different.“There are a lot of things to analyse and access, we are a long away, not in terms of results but performance.Pochettino insisted he was not on the verge of panic, though, adding: “I am relaxed, I’m not worried. My confidence in these players is 200 per cent, not 100 per cent, 200 per cent.”last_img read more

first_imgChelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has played down the late fracas that ensued between Mourinho and Maurizio Sarri’s assistant.Mourinho and Ianni were involved in a brawl following the assistant manager’s overzealous celebration after Barkely’s equaliser late in the game.However, Rudiger, who scored the Chelsea opener early on, insists that any bad blood ended once the Premier League game was over.“I don’t know [what happened],” Rudiger told FourFourTwo via Sky Sports. “I just saw the benches standing up, and I was like ‘what, a fight?’.“But it is emotions, it’s just football. I didn’t see anything on the pitch. But that’s football.“At the end of the day you shake hands. The game was still going on [when it happened]. That’s emotion, at least everything has calmed down now.”Barkley’s equaliser marked the second goal in as many club games for the midfielder, who is in form after a difficult start to life at Stamford Bridge last season.Tammy Abraham, ChelseaChelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.Late drama at the Bridge!Here’s our take on #CHEMUN… https://t.co/8RekFEQN5Q— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) October 20, 2018“Yes, my confidence is growing,” Barkley, who started twice for England during the international break, told Sky Sports.“Our target was to get the three points, so it’s disappointing, but to stick in at the end and get the draw, we showed great attitude at the end.“I’m building momentum game by game.

Milk Vita milk has no bad element claims state minister

Posted on | 2 Comments

first_imgThere is no presence of formalin or arsenic in the liquid milk of Milk Vita, state minister for rural development and cooperatives division Swapan Bhattacharjee told Parliament on Thursday, reports UNB.”No sign of formalin and arsenic has been detected in the liquid milk of Milk Vita. The milk of the Milk Vita is complete, proper and tasty,” he said taking part in the general discussion on the proposed national budget for the 2019-20 fiscal.The state minister said unscrupulous businessmen are carrying out propaganda that there is presence of arsenic and formalin in the milk of Milk Vita referring to a recent Dhaka University test report.He, however, claimed that the imported milk powder is substandard and not nutritious.”Milk powder which is being imported to our country is not nutritious. Milk powder is abandoned in Denmark and other European countries. Extracting fat from milk, the milk powder is being imported as bulk products giving only 5 per cent tax,” he added.Swapan said an evil attempt is on so that the quality milk of Milk Vita is not sold. “After realising this, the prime minister and the finance minister have increased the import duty on the milk powder from 5 per cent to 10 per cent, which is a timely step.”He said they went through the report of the rest carried out by the Bangladesh Standards and Testing Institution (BSTI), but no presence of formalin was mentioned in the report.A test has already been carried out in Singapore, which described the milk of Milk Vita as complete, appropriate and tasty as it did not find any bad element in it, said the state minister.”I want to assure the country’s people through this parliament that the milk of Milk Vita is much better, more acceptable and nutritious than the imported milk power which is being marketed,” he said.last_img read more

The Most Ambitious Troubled and Controversial Film Production in History

Posted on | 2 Comments

first_imgThere are movies that depict nightmare scenarios. Then there are movies where the making was a nightmare scenario. Every so often you get a legendary picture which achieves the dubious honor of both categories. One of these is Fitzcarraldo, director Werner Herzog’s period epic from 1982.Set in the early 20th century, deep in the steamy environment of the Amazon Basin, it was inspired by the exploits of a Victorian gentleman named Jose Fermin Fitzcarrald.Werner Herzog at the 66th Venice Film Festival, September 4, 2009. Photo by Nicolas Genin CC BY-SA 3.0According to a 2007 article in the Sunday Herald, he was a “rubber baron with a private army of 5,000 men and a territory the size of Belgium.”As is the case with artistic inspiration, it took a small detail to plant the seed of an idea in Herzog’s mind. His “interest had been sparked by a chance detail that (Fitzcarrald) had once dismantled a boat, carried it overland from one river to the next and reassembled it to continue his exploration.”Filming on the set of Fitzcarraldo, directed by Werner Herzog, on location in Peru. Crew members hauling the paddle steamer. Photo by jean-Louis Atlan/Sygma via Getty ImagesWhen it came to realizing the story, Herzog didn’t do things by halves. For starters, he turned Fitzcarrald into Fitzcarraldo, an Irish opera buff whose rubbery adventures were in service of a wild dream where he builds an opera house in the jungle. Then he decided to avoid home comforts by shooting in the actual Peruvian location.So far, so awkward. However there was greater ambition to come. For the 320-ton steamship in the script, which gets dragged up the side of a mountain, Herzog decided against using models. In fact he had 2 vessels to hand, anticipating that one might be destroyed during this Herculean effort.The remains of the steamer used in the movie, in Madre de Dios Region. Photo by Dr. Eugen Lehle CC BY-SA 3.0The director was also thinking of Sisyphus, the figure from Greek mythology who famously had to push a giant boulder uphill over and over for all eternity. While the production of Fitzcarraldo was comparatively shorter, it lasted years rather than the usual matter of months.For the title role, Herzog chose Jason Robards, with Mick Jagger providing support as a mentally-challenged assistant. After several months of filming in tougher than tough conditions, Robards contracted amoebic dysentery and had to leave the movie.Mick Jagger – The Rolling Stones live at San Siro Stadium, Milan, Italy, June 10, 2003. Photo by Kronos CC BY-SA 3.0Jagger then departed for a Rolling Stones tour, whereupon Herzog made the extraordinary move of removing his character from the action, such was the power of the rock star’s performance. Speaking in a 2001 interview, Herzog remarked: “Losing Mick was, I think, the biggest loss I have ever experienced as a film director…I liked him so much as a performer that any replacement would have been an embarrassment.”Starting from scratch with arguably the most complex film shoot of all time was a huge gamble. Robards was a fine actor, yet replacement Klaus Kinski inhabited the role in a way his predecessor never could.Klaus Kinski, German actor, at the Cannes Film Festival. Photo by Georges Biard CC BY-SA 3.0As Roger Ebert observed in 2005, “Kinski was a better choice for the role than Robards, for the same reason a real boat was better than a model: Robards would have been playing a madman, but to see Kinski is to be convinced of his ruling angers and demons.”Herzog had initially resisted casting friend and collaborator Kinski as Fitzcarraldo. To put it mildly, he figured the experience would not agree with his temperament. On top of that they were constantly rubbing each other up the wrong way. During a previous job on Aguirre: The Wrath of God (1972) – which also required jungle filming – Herzog had actually pointed a gun at Kinski.Lead actor Klaus Kinski on the movie set of Fitzcarraldo, directed by Werner Herzog, on location in Peru. Photo by jean-Louis Atlan/Sygma via Getty ImagesNevertheless, he took the plunge into uncharted waters with his unpredictable pal. The Sunday Herald comments that “For hundreds of native Indian extras already wary at being asked to help drag Herzog’s steamboat up a muddy slope, the daily outbursts of the raving white man were incomprehensible and terrifying. At one point a local chief approached the director and offered to have Kinski killed.”Before the movie even got going, there was controversy over the use of indigenous peoples as participants. The concerns were misplaced but the hiring of tribesmen brought its own troubles. And not just trouble, but fully-fledged danger.Film director Werner Herzog. Photo by Raffi Asdourian CC by 2.0A brutal attack by the Amahuaca tribe saw an arrow pierce a man’s throat (he survived) and his wife needing an urgent operation after being “hit in the stomach, necessitating eight hours of emergency surgery on a kitchen table. ‘I assisted by illuminating her abdominal cavity with a torchlight,’ recalled Herzog, ‘and with my other hand sprayed with repellent the clouds of mosquitoes that swarmed around the blood.’”The gruesome incidents piled up. At one point a logger took the drastic step of chainsawing his foot off to deal with a snake bite. And the production tragically played host to actual deaths, with extras falling prey to illness in the inhospitable conditions.Werner Herzog’s star in Boulevard der Stars, Berlin. Photo by Commonurbock23 CC BY 2.0Such was the chaos that documentary Burden of Dreams, shot by Les Blank as the shoot was going on, became as well-known as the movie. Chronicling the shocking scale of the offscreen drama, it won a British Academy Award. As for Herzog, his vision was recognized with a Best Director gong at the Cannes Film Festival.Was the project ultimately worthwhile? That question may have haunted the director but as he passionately explained to his investors, quoted in the Herald, “I live my life or I end my life with this project!”Read another story from us: The Master of Suspense – 5 Revealing Facts of Alfred HitchcockFor critics like the great Roger Ebert, the making of Fitzcarraldo and the end product are part of the same convention-shattering entity. In what is perhaps the definitive word on the subject, he described the film as “one of the great visions of the cinema, and one of the great follies. One would not have been possible without the other.”last_img read more

SuperSonic Imagine Introduces Aixplorer Mach 30 Ultrasound at The Liver Meeting

Furthermore the Aixplorer SWE has also been cleared by the FDA as an aid to clinical management of adult and pediatric patients with liver disease such as fibrosis and steatosis.In addition to routine morphological and hemodynamic imaging, Aixplorer systems can quickly and reliably image and measure liver stiffness in real-time under image guidance, utilizing the platform’s ShearWave Elastography (SWE) technology, a 60-second non-invasive exam. Liver stiffness is known to be correlated to liver fibrosis severity and is therefore considered a critical non-invasive biomarker of disease severity. A recent clinical study demonstrated that SWE could reduce the need for liver biopsies by 80 percent in patients with inactive chronic infection.[1]Aixplorer can also compare ultrasound liver brightness to reference tissue to gain a hepato-renal brightness ratio, which indicates the extent of hepatic steatosis. Aixplorer’s ability to visualize and quantify abdominal vascularization and perfusion aids clinical management of adult patients with liver nodules and advanced chronic liver diseases as well.The Aixplorer Mach 30 is tailored to meet the needs of liver specialists. It includes the newest version of SuperSonic Imagine’s imaging modes and tools, such as real-time ShearWave Elastography (SWE PLUS), B Mode Ratio to detect intrahepatic steatosis, Angio PL.U.S. with high resolution for imaging microvascularization in lesions, as well as Doppler and contrast imaging for the screening and characterization of liver nodules. A new available high-frequency, single-crystal curved transducer can visualize narrow intercostal spaces without compromising penetration. The Aixplorer Mach 30’s SonicPad makes exams more efficient, cutting times by up to 32 percent while allowing physicians to concentrate on the image and the patient, not the controls. SonicPad also uses intuitive gestures to reduce movement by an average 70 percent.The Aixplorer Mach 30 will be on display at the 2018 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Nov. 25-30 in Chicago.For more information: www.supersonicimagine.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Radiographic Fluoroscopy (RF) | August 09, 2019 Shimadzu Medical Systems Receives FDA 510(k) for FluoroSpeed X1 RF System Shimadzu Medical Systems USA, a subsidiary of Shimadzu Corp., announced they have received U.S. Food and Drug… read more News | Artificial Intelligence | August 05, 2019 Montefiore Nyack Hospital Uses Aidoc AI to Spot Urgent Conditions Faster Montefiore Nyack Hospital, an acute care hospital in Rockland County, N.Y., announced it is utilizing artificial… read more News | Medical 3-D Printing | August 08, 2019 RSNA and ACR to Collaborate on Landmark Medical 3D Printing Registry The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) will launch a new medical… read more News | Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) | August 06, 2019 Canon Medical Introduces Encore Orian MR Upgrade Program Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. is helping to provide low-cost patient care solutions for its customers with the launch… read more News | Pediatric Imaging | August 14, 2019 Ultrasound Guidance Improves First-attempt Success in IV Access in Children August 14, 2019 – Children’s veins read more Technology | Contrast Media | August 05, 2019 Bracco Receives FDA Approval for Varibar Thin Liquid for Oral Suspension Bracco Diagnostics Inc. announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for Varibar Thin Liquid (barium… read more Technology | Cybersecurity | August 07, 2019 ScImage Introduces PICOM ModalityGuard for Cybersecurity ScImage Inc. is bridging the gap between security and functionality with the introduction of the PICOM ModalityGuard…. read more News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more Technology | Ultrasound Imaging | November 14, 2018 SuperSonic Imagine Introduces Aixplorer Mach 30 Ultrasound at The Liver Meeting Ultrasound system equipped with ShearWave Elastrography specifically designed for liver imaging specialists News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | August 05, 2019 Digital Health Devices Used at Point of Care May Improve Diagnostic Certainty A West Virginia-based rural medical outreach event showcased the use of point-of-care technology in an ambulatory… read more Related Contentlast_img read more

Are Institutional Investors Preparing to Cash Out

Posted on | 2 Comments

first_img While statistics show that few institutional investors involved in the single-family rental market have sold off their inventory in large quantities, that might be about to change due to strong home price appreciation in the last few years, according to data released by RealtyTrac.The possibility of a high return on investment has given institutional investors the opportunity and motivation to cash out, leaving many to wonder about the future of the single-family rental industry and how it would be affected in areas with a high concentration of single-family homes purchased as rentals, should investors sell off in large quantities.To examine the return on investment institutional investors could receive by selling off now, RealtyTrac analyzed more than 200,000 purchases made by institutional investors (defined as homebuyers who made 10 or more purchases in a calendar year) made during a two-and-a-half year period from January 2012 to August 2014.The average purchase price of those 200,000 properties was $167,556, and those properties have a current estimated value of $211,897, which would result in a gained equity of 26 percent (a combined total of $8.9 billion) if all of these properties were sold today, according to RealtyTrac. Homes purchased during 2012 would result in the greatest return on investment, ranging from 38 to 43 percent, depending on the month purchased, RealtyTrac reported.The top five states with the highest potential percentage of gained equity return on investment for the past three years are Delaware (63 percent), California (47 percent), New Hampshire (44 percent), Oregon (42 percent), and New York (39 percent), according to RealtyTrac. The top five states for the highest potential total dollar value in gained equity on institutional investor purchases were California ($1.9 billion), Florida ($1.4 billion), Georgia ($662 million), Arizona ($546 million), and Illinois ($486 million).Four of the top five metro areas with the highest potential percentage of gained equity return on investment for the past three years, out of those metro areas with at least 1,000 institutional investor purchases during that period, located in California: San Francisco (63 percent), Portland (50 percent), San Diego (47 percent), Los Angeles (46 percent), and Riverside-San Bernardino (46 percent), according to RealtyTrac. The five metro areas with the highest potential dollar value in gained equity for institutional investor purchases during that period were Miami ($611 million), Atlanta ($609 million), Los Angeles ($568 million), Phoenix ($512 million), and Chicago ($464 million).
