While these sites guarantee plenty of lodging options, finding the most interesting places to stay often requires hours of searching through hundreds, even thousands, of properties. Boutique-Homes.com eliminates that headache by offering only unique vacation rentals for lovers of design.The site’s primary search isn’t by location (though there is a world map, if you prefer), but rather by listing. It’s clear the intention is that where you stay should be just as interesting and important as your overall destination. The inventory varies widely and includes tiny homes, small boutique hotels, upscale vacation homes, and opulent, Pablo Escobar-worthy estates.Overall, we found it surprisingly affordable. For budget-conscious travelers, the “Chic & Cheap” category is a good starting point. Listings like this Alpine Austrian chalet or this rustic, minimalist, two-bedroom sea cabin on a Norwegian cliffside are available for a little more than $200 per night.Image courtesy of Boutique-Homes.com Image courtesy of Boutique-Homes.comIf you’re willing and able to split a rental with a handful of friends, your options become far more extravagant. This sprawling luxury villa in the Seychelles, for example, recalls the exotic, Hemingway-inspired African exploration days of the early 20th century. This elegant Provence estate (pictured above) blends Old World French charm with a boatload of modern amenities (an outdoor pool, tennis court, and multiple kitchens) and breathtaking views. While most nightly rates in this category start above $1,000, sharing the cost with others can put the price tag in reach of most mortal men.Other specialty categories include “Bring Fido Along” (pet-friendly rentals), “Glamping,” and “Extra Large” (for anyone planning an oversized gathering). The “By Architects” category is especially intriguing. Here, travelers can find vacation rental homes designed by famed architects (Frank Lloyd Wright among them) and up-and-comers. The rentals in the “Our Favorites” category reads like the pages of Architectural Digest, where every listing is more over-the-top and grandiose than the last.Boutique-Homes.com has property listings on six continents. However, as a “boutique” site, the inventory is limited compared to its mainstream competitors. It’s worth a look if you care more about quality over quantity.Feature image courtesy of Boutique-Homes.com.

first_imgKabul: The Taliban on Tuesday defended their suicide bombing against an international compound in the Afghan capital that killed at least 16 civilians and wounded 119 people, just hours after a US envoy said he and the militant group had reached a deal “in principle” to end America’s longest war. Angry Kabul residents whose homes were shredded in the explosion climbed over the buckled blast wall and set part of the compound, a frequent target of the militants, on fire. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USThick smoke rose from the Green Village, home to several foreign organisations and guesthouses, whose location has become a peril to nearby local residents as well. “People were screaming and saying, ‘My children are trapped in the rubble,'” one witness, Faiz Ahmad, said. A large crater was left in the street. The Taliban continue such attacks even as a US envoy says the deal with the insurgents only needs the approval of President Donald Trump to become a reality. The accord would include a troop withdrawal that the Taliban already portray as their victory. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsTaliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told The Associated Press that “we understand that peace talks are going on… but they must also understand that we are not weak and if we enter into talks… we enter from a strong position.” He said the attack was a response to raids by US and Afghan forces on civilians in other parts of the country. While he acknowledged there should be less harm to civilians, he said they shouldn’t be living near such an important foreign compound. Interior Ministry spokesman Nasrat Rahimi said some 400 foreigners had been rescued after the suicide bomber targeted the compound late on Monday. Five other attackers were shot and killed by security forces after the suicide bomber detonated a tractor packed with explosives, he said. The attack occurred just hours after the US envoy briefed the Afghan government on an agreement “in principle” with the Taliban that would see 5,000 US troops withdraw from five bases in the country within 135 days of a final deal. Between 14,000 and 13,000 troops are currently in the country. The Green Village also was hit by a suicide car bomber in January, again as the US envoy, Zalmay Khalilzad, was visiting the capital to brief the Afghan government on his negotiations with the Taliban on ending nearly 18 years of fighting.last_img read more

first_imgOTTAWA – Officials at National Defence have dusted off their briefing books and are back looking at where they could send Canadian peacekeepers as the clock ticks down to a major UN summit on the subject next month in Vancouver.The flurry of activity ends months of idling as military planners waited for some signs of interest from the Trudeau government, which first promised up to 600 troops and 150 police for peacekeeping last year.National Defence conducted a number of fact-finding missions and drew up options on possible missions following that commitment in August 2016, but the Liberals refused to pull the trigger.Instead, the whole idea was put on the back burner for months amid concerns about the potential risks of modern peacekeeping missions, and as the government turned to dealing with the Trump administration.In the meantime, National Defence’s proposals collected dust as they sat largely untouched with the Prime Minister’s Office and Global Affairs Canada.Sources tell The Canadian Press that defence officials are now back at it and that the Liberals hope to make a decision before the Nov. 14-15 peacekeeping summit in Vancouver, though it’s not certain they will.The government has previously said it will not be rushed into a mission, but the UN expected last year when it agreed to let Canada host the meeting that Canadian troops would already be on the ground.The summit, to be hosted by Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan, is only supposed to be open to officials from countries that have made concrete pledges to peacekeeping missions.Defence officials are still looking at possible roles for Canada in Africa, but have also reportedly expanded their search to include the new mission in Haiti, where Canadian peacekeepers previously served.The UN has prepared a list of requirements in advance of the Vancouver summit, which includes three missions with “critical” shortages of specialized troops and equipment: Mali, South Sudan and Haiti.The UN is specifically looking for an intelligence unit, bomb-disposal company and transport helicopters for Mali; a special forces unit and transport company for South Sudan; and helicopters for Haiti.But it also needs more medical personnel, engineers, female peacekeepers, francophone troops and police officers across the board — all of which Canada has in supply.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said last month that the Liberals remain committed to peacekeeping, but that Canadians would want the government to take its time before putting troops into harm’s way.“We need to make sure that we’re doing it right, that we’re doing it in a thoughtful way and that it’s the right mission,” Trudeau said at the time. “We will take the time necessary to do it properly.”A UN official expressed frustration Friday at the government’s apparent foot-dragging, noting that the needs of the world’s hotspots have not changed significantly since the Liberals first promised to do more peacekeeping.“Mali is still Mali, and South Sudan is still South Sudan,” said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to diplomatic sensitivities. “You have all the information. There isn’t much left for discussion.”The Liberals were expected last year to send a large number of troops to Mali, where the UN is policing a ceasefire between the local government and various rebel groups amid attacks from terrorist groups.French Ambassador Kareen Rispal, whose country has a large counter-insurgency mission in Mali, came out in French-language media this week saying she hopes Canada will still support the UN there.That may still be the case, but sources warn Canada’s footprint is likely to be smaller than anticipated wherever the government ultimately decides to go.Royal Military College professor Walter Dorn, who has done extensive work on peacekeeping, said it’s way past time the government took another serious look at potential contributions to the UN.Canada stands to be embarrassed if a decision isn’t made before the Vancouver summit, though he warned that simply offering a token contribution to one mission or another likely won’t be enough.“Canada has pledged up to 600 military personnel and 150 police personnel,” he said.“If we don’t deliver more than half of that, then it will be a great disappointment because the UN desperately needs well-equipped forces and francophone forces, in particular.”— Follow @leeberthiaume on Twitterlast_img read more

first_imgLast weekend, the latest CBS Cares Public Service Announcements (PSAs) for the national education nonprofit, the I Have A Dream Foundation (IHDF), aired during CBS’ extensive coverage of the Super Bowl.The PSAs featured CBS stars Tea Leoni (MADAM SECRETARY) and Tom Selleck (BLUE BLOODS) in order to bring attention to the urgent need to increase access to and affordability of higher education for children from low-income families.You can watch the videos here.The Super Bowl ads are the latest in a national ad campaign featuring IHDF. Over the holidays, CBS celebrities Mayim Bialik (The Big Bang Theory) and LL Cool J (NCIS: Los Angeles) were in similar PSAs urging support for IHDF’s mission. The PSAs will continue to run throughout the Spring.With more than 100 million people tuned into Super Bowl 50, IHDF reports all-time high web traffic and engagement.“At IHDF, we have helped put the dream of a college education within reach for tens of thousands of our ‘Dreamers’ across the country,” said Donna A. Lawrence, President and CEO of the National “I Have A Dream” Foundation. “The increased attention to our organization as a result of being featured during Super Bowl 50 will help us to expand our programs, making the dream of a college education a reality for thousands more children.”Through its national office and 16 affiliates across the country (including Atlanta, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, L.A., New Jersey, New York, and Oregon), IHDF supports students in under-resourced public schools. But this isn’t a typical financial assistance or scholarship program. IHDF chooses entire classes of students, and in some cases entire schools, and supports each student from early elementary school all the way through college. Every student in the program receives guaranteed tuition assistance for higher education as well as continued support throughout their college career. As a result, students who have passed through IHDF’s program (dubbed “Dreamers”) are more than two times as likely to receive a Bachelor’s degree as their low-income peers.“Some kids don’t get to do the same things as us, so I want people to do the same thing as us and get a good education,” said Johnny Castro, a “Dreamer” and Des Moines middle school student, who helped to promote the Super Bowl CBS Cares PSA campaign.Since 1981, “I Have A Dream” programs have operated in 28 states, Washington, D.C., and New Zealand, together serving nearly 17,000 students. The CBS Cares attention comes at a crucial point for the foundation’s future; IHDF, which celebrates its 35th anniversary this year, is launching a growth plan to significantly increase the program’s reach and capacity. Over the next five years, IHDF intends to triple the total number of active Dreamers in the program from 3,200 to 10,000 and increase their footprint by doubling their network from 16 to 32 local “I Have A Dream” affiliates around the country.last_img read more

SAN FRANCISCO — Apple has released an iPhone update to fix a FaceTime flaw that allowed people to eavesdrop on others while using its group video chat feature.The repair is included in the latest version of Apple’s iOS 12 system, which became available to install Thursday.The bug allowed some people to turn an iPhone into a live microphone while using Group FaceTime. Apple turned off the group chat feature last week, several days after a 14-year-old boy in Tucson, Arizona, discovered the flaw. He and his mom tried to contact Apple for several days before the company responded.The delay in responding to the flaw raised questions about Apple’s handling of it.Apple credited the Tucson teenager, Grant Thompson, for discovering the FaceTime bug.The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Top defence leaders will face worried lawmakers on Capitol Hill for the first time since the Pentagon spelled out the military construction projects that could lose funding this year to pay for President Donald Trump’s border wall.Acting Defence Secretary Patrick Shanahan will testify at a House Armed Services Committee hearing Tuesday along with the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph Dunford.This will be their first hearing appearance since Shanahan sent Congress a list that included 150 projects worth more than $4.3 billion that could be targeted.Defence officials say projects that lose funding this year could be refunded next year. But some lawmakers have opposed any use of military construction money for the wall.Lolita C. Baldor, The Associated Press

23 August 2010An assessment of the environmental impact of oil spills across Ogoniland and the Niger Delta regions in Nigeria is not yet complete, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) stressed today as it refuted allegations in the media that it has already reached key findings. An assessment of the environmental impact of oil spills across Ogoniland and the Niger Delta regions in Nigeria is not yet complete, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) stressed today as it refuted allegations in the media that it has already reached key findings.The fieldwork involved in carrying out a $9.5 million environmental assessment will not be finished until October and a report is not expected to be ready until early next year, after laboratory analysis has concluded, UNEP said in a press statement.In recent days some media reports have suggested that UNEP has already found that 90 per cent of the contamination is from criminal activity by locals or from so-called bunkering, where oil pipelines are tapped and the contents siphoned out.“In referring to this data UNEP clearly indicated that these figures represented official estimates of the Government of Nigeria, based in part on data supplied by the oil industry,” the statement noted.“They therefore do not represent nor reflect results of UNEP’s current assessment process, which is still ongoing. To link this data with UNEP’s study or indeed any future attribution of responsibility is incorrect.”UNEP said the assessment “represents an unprecedented effort to examine the location, nature and extent and implications of oil contamination in Ogoniland. It is part of a longer-term goal to clean up contaminated sites for the benefit of local communities and people living in parts of the Niger Delta and for the region’s sustainable development.”The agency emphasized that the study, which began late last year, is independent and that the funding – from the Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) – for it is in keeping with the polluter-pays principle. read more

Luxury bike wear company Kit and Ace is steering itself in a new direction without its famed co-founders.The Vancouver-based brand said that Shannon and J.J. Wilson — the wife and son of Lululemon Athletica Inc. founder Chip Wilson — are no longer involved in the company that they created in 2014.The duo has been replaced by members of the Kit and Ace management team that acquired the company for an undisclosed amount and will now be led by chief executive officer George Tsogas.Chip Wilson’s Kit and Ace lays off some of its head office staff, closes stores in three countriesA cycling competition as fierce as the Tour de France: Spin cycle clubs roll into TorontoChip Wilson’s casual apparel chain Kit and Ace hit by more layoffsTsogas told The Canadian Press that the changes to the brand have been in the works for several months and that the Wilsons’ departure was amiable.“They are moving on. They are doing philanthropy and just enjoying their time now,” Tsogas said.Tsogas noted that he remains close with Chip Wilson, who he called a “mentor.” The two have known each other for 17 years, since Tsogas joined Lululemon in 2002 when the brand only had four stores.“Having him by my side and developing me and mentoring me has enabled me to get this opportunity to get Kit and Ace to this point where it is profitable and to be able to buy it,” he said.“They have known about (my vision) since the beginning and that I wanted to buy the company. It has been my goal.”Since Tsogas took the company’s helm in April 2017, he has been trying to transition the company away from its luxury roots and turn it into a brand that is more focused on giving modern commuters high-tech gear.The shift has been driven by consumer demand and feelings that the products Kit and Ace sell were too expensive, Tsogas said.He has since dramatically dropped prices on some products.Kit and Ace has a handful of stores in Ontario, British Columbia and Alberta and runs an e-commerce offering. read more

High stakes for Trump on GOP health care bill WASHINGTON – As a new president who has vowed to keep his campaign promises, Donald Trump knows he’ll be judged on whether he can repeal the so-called Obamacare law and replace it with something new.Dealing with skepticism from conservatives and moderates alike, the White House is considering changes to the bill that might reassure conservatives, all in an effort to muscle through the GOP-backed health care plan in the House next week. Trump, who is not steeped in policy, has signalled that he’s open to negotiation in his first attempt working with Congress.“The House has put forward a plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, based on the principles I outlined in my joint address, but let me tell you we’re going to arbitrate, we’re going to all get together, we’re going to get something done,” Trump said at a rally in Nashville on Wednesday night as supporters waved signs that read “Promises Made, Promises Kept.”On Thursday morning, the House Budget Committee voted to advance the health care bill, overcoming three conservative GOP lawmakers who voted against the measure. The vote was a sign of the challenge that GOP leaders face in getting it through the House.Trump is focused on delivering his “repeal and replace” promise and is likely to be flexible on the fine print dividing moderate and conservative Republicans in the policy fight, said a person familiar with the president’s thinking, who spoke on condition of anonymity to share private discussions.Speaking to reporters on Air Force One Wednesday night after the rally, Trump said he expected to get a health care bill through, adding: “It’s going to get all mixed up and we’re going to come up with something. We always do.”The approach reflects a keen awareness within the White House of how much is riding on the effort. Trump made repealing and replacing his predecessor’s health care law a core campaign promise, although he has acknowledged he was surprised at how complex the task would be. Failing to pass a bill while his party controls both the House and Senate would be a devastating blow to his party and the premise of his presidency — that he was a dealmaker the country needed.Still, Trump keeps stressing the legislation is far from finished, telling Fox News Wednesday that “We will take care of our people or I’m not signing it, OK, just so you understand. This is very preliminary.”That approach also has made some allies nervous that the transactional president may be more committed to striking a deal than passing the legislation as crafted by House Republican Speaker Paul Ryan. A bruising, independent analysis of the bill has underscored the political risks involved for some moderate Republicans. It’s a risk they’re unlikely to take without a commitment from the president.House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday that Trump is deeply involved in efforts to scrap the Obama health law, and helping GOP leaders persuade reluctant lawmakers.Republican leaders’ task of striking a balance on a bill that will appeal to both conservative and moderate Republicans is proving difficult. Republicans hold a 44-seat margin in the House with five vacancies, meaning that if every Democrat opposes the measure, as expected, the GOP could lose 21 votes and still pass the bill.The findings by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office that 14 million people would lose health care coverage in the first year alone and 24 million in all by 2026 applied pressure to moderate Republicans wary of being accused in the 2018 mid-term elections of ripping away health insurance.After the CBO released its findings, House Republicans such as Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida and Leonard Lance of New Jersey said they couldn’t back the current House plan because it would leave too many people uninsured and they were worried it would not pass the Senate.But if Republicans try to make improvements to help moderate members, that could alienate conservatives. The White House has been courting about 40 conservative House members who are part of the “Freedom Caucus” and have raised objections to the bill’s use of tax credits — which they liken to another government entitlement — and the timing on curtailing the expansion of Medicaid to states.GOP Rep Mark Meadows of North Carolina, who chairs the conservative Freedom Caucus that is demanding changes to the bill, said that contrary to claims by GOP leaders that Trump helped craft their bill and fully supports it, the president is open to alterations.“I think he is looking for amendments to be made to make it better,” Meadows said, adding that he’s been working directly with the administration, not with congressional leadership.Meadows and Sen. Ted Cruz, a Texas Republican, co-authored an opinion piece published online Wednesday in The Wall Street Journal, outlining steps to be taken to repeal the health law.Republicans, however, do not expect wholesale changes to the bill before it reaches the House floor next week.“I don’t think there’s enough room for him to cut and run from Ryan and do his own deal because the bill sits on a tight-rope,” said former Rep. Thomas Reynolds of New York, a Republican lobbyist. “There’s not a lot of room. They may be able to make some adjustments, but it’s more adjusting about how they cobble together” enough votes to pass the bill.___AP Congressional Correspondent Erica Werner contributed to this report. by Ken Thomas And Catherine Lucey, The Associated Press Posted Mar 16, 2017 3:41 am MDT Last Updated Mar 16, 2017 at 10:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email President Donald Trump speaks at a rally Wednesday, March 15, 2017, in Nashville, Tenn.

first_imgT-post currently has 2,500 subscribers in more than 50 countries; 400 subscribers are from the U.S., which the company says is its fastest growing market.According to publishing director and editor-in-chief Peter Lundgren, the process of choosing news stories is a collaborative one. “It all starts with the news editor. He keeps in touch with news blogs all around the world, scans newspapers and connects the dots,” he wrote in an e-mail to me. “From there, the whole editorial team sits down and decides on which story to run. T-post stories often consist of two or three different news stories and reflections that we think have some connection to each other and are intriguing enough to tell our subscribers. Our stories usually end up living somewhere in-between a news story and a column.”T-post’s most recent “issue” features a news story entitled “Higher Education,” which explores how more college courses are focusing on topics like marijuana use and cyber porn. The front of the shirt—interpreted by Swedish designer Marc Stromberg—features a collage of rocks, paper and scissors in reference to the last sentence of the article: “Who knows, perhaps a course in the game Rock, Paper, Scissors could come in handy when negotiating big business contracts.”And T-post took the “Rock, Paper, Scissors” concept virtual by adding an augmented reality feature, enabling “readers” who wear the that particular T-post in front of any Web camera and play a game of—you guessed it—Rock, Paper, Scissors against a computer-generated arm that extends from the shirt itself.Take that, e-readers. Or maybe not. Sure, manufacturers of e-reader technology tout the convenience that consumers can gain from having access to all of their favorite books and/or magazines on one portable device. But imagine if you could read a magazine article right from—ahem—the shirt on your back?Well, you can. Created by a Sweden-based company of the same name, T-Post—which calls itself the “world’s first wearable magazine”—is a graphic T-shirt with a news story printed on the inside and a graphic artist’s interpretation of the news story printed on the front.Strange, right? Absurd? Most definitely.The T-Post is sold via a subscription-based model—customers sign up online and shell out 19 Euros, or about $26. Three weeks later they receive their first T-shirt and a new one arrives by mail every six weeks after that. last_img read more

first_imgThe state Department of Transportation, contracting with Knik Construction, broke ground this past spring on the hub village of Aniak’s new runway, a project long in the making. (Petra Harpak / KYUK)The state Department of Transportation, contracting with Knik Construction, broke ground this past spring on the hub village of Aniak’s new runway, a project long in the making.Listen nowThe project is currently in the excavation phase, while the airport’s operations have continued undisturbed from construction. A rock pit has been dug, and soon DOT will bring in concrete mix materials to pave the new runway.The project’s initial manager and designer Morgan Merritt said that while some in the community would rather have stayed with the current situation, new construction was necessary for both cost and safety reasons. The old runway’s paving conditions drove up maintenance costs, and federal authorities are requiring more space along the runways be left clear for safety.“The safety of the separation distances and the possibility of accident,” Merritt said.The Federal Aviation Administration wants runways to have what they call “safety areas.”“If an aircraft on approach has a navigational or mechanical problem,” Merritt said, “it’s been shown that statistically aircraft will land accidentally left or right of the runway, and that’s why the FAA has established runway safety areas and object-free areas.”Merritt says that the FAA is covering much of the cost for the new runway project, $53.6 million of which is covered by federal grants and $3.6 million by the state of Alaska.The inconveniences so far have been with traffic and dust, which Knik Construction, DOT and the City of Aniak have been attending to. Kevin Toothaker, Aniak’s City Manager, says that most of the traffic is due to travel to and from the new gravel pit. He adds that some buildings have already been demolished and trees have been cut in order to move Aniak’s sewer main, part of the overall project redesign.“They cut off one of the roads; one of the ways to get to new housing and stuff through the west side of the airport is blocked off right now while they redo the sewer,” Toothaker said. “I think it’s been kinda going smoothly for the most part – a lot of dust, but Knik runs their water truck to help keep the dust down.”Overall, the community of Aniak has pulled together regardless of any doubts they might have about the project, Toothaker says. People help during planned and unplanned power and sewer outages. This included the Kuspuk School District providing power to those needing it, and the Yukon Kuskokwim Health Corporation providing access to power and water off their well and generator as needed.Business organizations like YKHC have come together as an informal group, letting people know what services are available to them throughout the construction period.“Working together with anything that comes our way because we are out here on the island, we are our own help, so that’s why we’ve pooled together to address a lot of things that have come up in Aniak and that’s just our plan moving forward,” Kimberly Madden, YKHC’s Operations Manager in Aniak, said. “So far it’s worked out really well.”Morgan Merritt says that the new runway will actually be narrower than the existing one, but longer. It is already more than a mile long.“At present it’s 150 wide by 6,000 feet long. After the construction, the shifted runway will be 100 feet wide and 6,200 feet long. So it’s narrower, but longer as far as takeoff lengths,” Merritt said.But landing lengths will actually be shorter, which Merritt says concerns air carriers and a number of people in town as it pertains to Boeing 737s carrying freight. DOT’s analysis says that the new runway will only make for tighter weight restrictions under certain flying conditions and that the landing length should be adequate.The new runway is expected to open next year after the FAA installs navigation aids.last_img read more

It reveals how brain SPECT (single photon emission computed tomography) imaging can help clinicians more accurately diagnose and treat a wide variety of mental conditions by looking at the organ responsible for the decision-making, behaviors and overall cognitive functioning.Co-authored by Daniel G. Amen, M.D., founder of Amen Clinics Inc; Kristen Willeumier, Ph.D. and Joseph Annibali, M.D., the study asked seven board-certified psychiatrists to evaluate 109 patients’ files without the SPECT images and give their professional diagnosis and recommended treatment. After they saw the SPECT scans, 79 percent of the diagnosis and/or treatment would have been different. Additionally 22 percent of the patients showed unexpected brain injury and/or toxicity, while 60 percent showed new targets for medication or supplements.”The SPECT images help the clinician understand where the brain is not functioning properly, so they can give a more accurate diagnosis and treatment offering,” said Amen. He has conducted more than 73,000 SPECT scans on patients from 90 countries in the last 20 years.”In our study, the use of SPECT neuroimaging modified the diagnostic thinking and led clinicians to make different, specific treatment recommendations in a high percentage of cases,” wrote Amen, a board-certified child and adult psychiatrist.Brain SPECT imaging is a form of neuroimaging that reveals the underlying physiology of emotional, behavioral and cognitive disorders such as anxiety, depression, ADD, memory loss, Alzheimer’s, addiction, autism, seizures, strokes, toxic exposure and post-traumatic stress disorder.For more information: www.amenclinics.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | August 07, 2019 Contrast Use in First Transthoracic Echocardiogram for Heart Failure Reduces Repeat Testing Heart failure is the fourth most common cause for all admission to U.S. hospitals, and it is the most common reason for… read more Image courtesy of Imago Systems News | PET-CT | August 15, 2019 United Imaging Announces First U.S. Clinical Installation of uExplorer Total-body PET/CT United Imaging announced that its uExplorer total-body positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) system… read more last_img read more
