Severe storms pose threat to Northeast, Mid-Atlantic

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — The same storm system that brought 11 confirmed tornadoes to the South will move east Friday and bring severe thunderstorms from the Carolinas to the Mid-Atlantic while heavy rain arrives in New England. There were seven tornadoes in Louisiana from Wednesday into Thursday, including the strongest, an EF3 tornado in Ruston that killed two people. As the storm reaches the East Coast, the greatest threat for severe weather and the heaviest rain will be Friday afternoon and into the evening hours.The most severe storms will cover an area extending north from Wilmington, North Carolina, through Raleigh, North Carolina; Richmond, Virginia; Washington, D.C.; and into Philadelphia.The biggest threat with these storms will be damaging winds over 60 mph, and possibly a few tornadoes and flash flooding.Spring snowstormA storm system will move out of the Rockies late Friday into Saturday morning and spread rain and snow into the Dakotas for Saturday morning.The storm system will move into the Midwest on Saturday afternoon, spreading a swath of snow from southern Minnesota into Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan and Indiana.The heaviest snow will fall in southern Minnesota, northern Iowa, southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois, where some areas could see close to a half a foot of snow.At this time, it looks like the heaviest snow will stay south of the Twin Cities and just north of Chicago, but since Chicago is very close to the heavy snow it could be in trouble if the storm track shifts further south.

News Corp.’s digital real estate revenue slides

first_imgNews Corp CEO Robert Thomson (Credit: Paul Morigi/Getty Images)News Corporation’s digital real estate services took a hit last quarter, with earnings down and CEO Robert Thomson signaling that another round of cost cutting measures were in store.News Corp. reported a 4 percent decline in real estate revenue, to $261 million from $272 million in the same period last year. Company-wide, revenue dropped 8 percent to $2.27 billion, attributed in part to the economic fallout from the coronavirus.“Digital real estate was showing solid progress through January and February, but began experiencing pandemic-related declines in March,” Thomson said in an earnings call Thursday. News Corp. counts the first three months of the year as its third quarter.The decline was in part from foreign currency fluctuations, but Covid-19 also played a role, he said. The company anticipated the effects of the crisis will be more visible in the next quarter.ADVERTISEMENTMove Inc., a News Corp. subsidiary that operates Realtor.com, reported a 2 percent drop in revenue to $118 million from $121 million in the same period last year, dashing a strong start to 2020.In response to the pandemic, CFO Susan Panuccio said Realtor.com “instituted a billing-relief initiative in late March for its customers, which was subsequently extended into May.” She added that “the initiatives, together with other Covid-19-related impacts, reduced third-quarter revenues by an estimated $6 million.”At the same time, internal data showed the average monthly unique users of realtor.com had grown 6 percent year-over-year in the last quarter, to roughly 68 million.Read moreKeller Williams reports strong quarter but slowdown loomsRealogy reports $462M first-quarter net loss RE/MAX ready for “full brunt” of pandemic: CEO In step with corporations across the world, News Corp. has made efforts to cut costs since the coronavirus outbreak, and more are to come, according to its CEO.“Significant cost reductions have been implemented across the company, and additional steps will be taken in coming months,” Thomson said in the call.Executive compensation is one of the items on the chopping block: Thomson said Rupert Murdoch had elected to forgo his annual cash bonus, while Thomson will forgo 75 percent of his.“For many senior executives, bonuses are the largest component of their cash compensation,” Thomson noted.Write to Sylvia Varnham O’Regan at [email protected] This content is for subscribers only.Subscribe Nowlast_img read more

Tim Brennan (guitar), Jeff Darosa (guitar), Lee Forshner (bagpipes), Matt Kelly (drums), Kevin Rheault (bass), James Lynch (guitar), Ken Casey (vocals), and Al Barr (vocals) made their way to the infield right around 6:30 p.m. ET to jump into the band’s 28-song set.The first half of the performance included originals like “The Boys Are Back”, “The State of Massachusetts”, “Smash Sh*t Up”, “Tessie”, and “Rebels with a Cause”, along with a cover of Gerry Cinnamon‘s “The Bonny”. The second half of Streaming Outta Fenway saw Dropkick play the fan-favorite original “I’m Shipping Up to Boston” in addition to “Queen of Suffolk County”, “Out of Our Heads”, and “Johnny, I Hardly Knew Ya”.

Harbinger Drops M100-BT and M200-BT Portable PAs

first_imgHarbinger Pro Audio’s new M100-BT and M200-BT portable PA systems are complete transportable sound systems. Both PA systems feature powered mixers with a variety of inputs, including stereo Bluetooth input, channel EQ and 800 watt (peak) stereo power amplifiers that deliver a big, clear, full-range, best-in-class sound and plenty of power for large spaces. Custom carry bags are also included for easy transport and storage.The M100-BT PA system includes a pair of two-way speaker cabinets, each with an eight-inch woofer and a compression high-frequency driver. Each speaker can deliver up to 118 dB SPL, with a total of 124 dB SPL for the pair.The M200-BT employs a ten-inch woofer and a compression high-frequency driver and can put out up to 120 dB SPL per speaker and 126 dB SPL for the pair.In both PA systems, the speakers can be configured as a stereo main pair or as a mono main speaker plus a mono stage monitor. Selectable speaker modes tune the speakers appropriately for either application. The speakers can be free standing or pole mounted on standard speaker stands (stands not included).The M100-BT’s four-channel stereo mixer offers plenty of flexibility, including two mono channels with switchable combo mic/guitar/line inputs and a stereo channel with a pair of ¼-inch, TRS balanced/unbalanced line inputs; a 1/8-inch stereo aux input; and stereo Bluetooth input for wirelessly connecting phones, tablets and laptops. All of the inputs are available simultaneously.Each mono channel is equipped with a channel level knob, a level knob for the built-in Echo effect, and low- and high-frequency EQ knobs (±12 dB shelving, with 80 Hz and 10 kHz cutoff frequencies). The stereo channel has a stereo level knob. In addition to the left and right ¼-inch speaker outputs, the M100-BT mixer offers a 1/8-inch stereo output-great for connecting to a recording device. A master level knob and monitor level knob complete the controls.The M200-BT mixer is identical to that of the M100-BT, with two significant exceptions. Where the M100-BT has a four-channel mixer, the M200-BT has a six channel mixer that adds two more mono channels with mic/line inputs. The M200-BT channels are otherwise identical to those on the M100-BT, including the level knobs and the mono channels’ 2-band EQ and Echo controls. The other difference is that the M200-BT adds a five-band graphic EQ on the main bus for tuning your PA system to the room.Rugged moulded PPE plastic speaker cabinets and mixer housing and steel speaker grilles and mixer panel ensure the M100-BT and M200-BT PA systems will stand up to the rigors of travel and live performance. The M100-BT weighs in at just 33 pounds and the M200-BT at 43 pounds, and with the included speaker bags with convenient hand straps and mixer bag with adjustable shoulder straps, transportation is a breeze. Both systems come with speaker cables and with power cables for their internal 115 VAC power supplies.Harbinger’s M100-BT and M200-BT are available now and here are detailed specs.last_img read more

Colombian study bolsters evidence of Zika-GBS link

first_imgA study today in the New England Journal of Medicine shows more evidence of a strong link between Zika virus (ZIKV) and Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS), while reports from Florida show that local transmission is still occurring in Miami Beach.Zika infection preceded GBS in manyIn today’s study, Colombian researchers looked at 68 patients with confirmed GBS diagnoses from November 2015 to March 2016.The patients were treated at one of six university hospitals in Colombia, and nearly all the patients (97%) had limb weakness upon admission. Fifty-six percent had ascending paralysis, and 50% had bilateral facial paralysis.Among those tested with nerve-conduction studies and electromyography, 78% had the acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy subtype of GBS. Forty patients (59%) were admitted to intensive care units, and 31% of all patients required mechanical ventilation. Four patients died while in hospital.Of the 68 patients, 66 (97%) had symptoms of ZIKV infection 1 month prior to the onset of GBS symptoms, with an average of 1 week between Zika symptoms and GBS symptom onset. Of the 68 patients with GBS, 42 were tested for ZIKV using RT-PCR, and the results were positive in 17 patients (40%). Moreover, 32 of the 37 patients with GBS who were tested (86%) had evidence of a recent flavivirus infection, indicated by antiflavivirus antibodies. All patients tested negative for dengue virus (DENV).”The increase in cases of the Guillain-Barre syndrome during the time of the ZIKV outbreak in Colombia and the absence of such an increase while DENV and chikungunya virus were circulating within the region in previous years provides epidemiological evidence of the link between ZIKV infection and the Guillain-Barre syndrome,” the authors wrote.The authors suggest this study corroborates earlier studies from French Polynesia, which reported clusters of GBS after a 2013-2014 Zika outbreak. Like that outbreak, the researchers posit that the current Zika epidemic in the Americas causes neurologic symptoms of GBS immediately following infection with ZIKV. Thus Zika-related GBS follows a parainfectious pattern, rather than the classical post-infection presentation of GBS.Temporal Zika, GBS relationship?According to a commentary in the New England Journal of Medicine, the study provides some temporal evidence of Zika virus infection and subsequent GBS diagnosis. But, unfortunately, the study also highlights the difficulty in obtaining an accurate and timely Zika diagnosis.”The difficulties in diagnosing ZIKV infection are borne out in this study, as only 17 patients had definitive laboratory evidence of recent ZIKV infection,” wrote Jennifer Frontera, MD, and Ivan da Silva, MD, PhD in the commentary. “As is true with most clinical studies, proving a causal relationship between ZIKV infection and the Guillain–Barre syndrome is challenging.”Still, Frontera and da Silva—Brazilian clinicians who were not involved in the study—warn that more GBS clusters are likely to follow regions hit hardest by Zika in the coming months.Miami Beach sees more ZikaIn other Zika news, Florida Health, the state’s department of health, is reporting two more non-travel–related cases of the mosquito-borne illness today as the state prepares to face Hurricane Matthew. Both cases were acquired in the Miami Beach active transmission zone, one of the city’s premiere tourist destinations. There are now 141 cases of locally acquired Zika in Florida.Florida Health also reported one new case of Zika in a non-Florida resident who visited Miami Beach, raising the total number of non-Florida residents who acquired the disease in the state to 17.Pregnant women are still advised to avoid all unnecessary travel to Miami Beach, and Florida Health reminded residents that Zika prevention was in their hands.”The department urges Floridians to drain standing water weekly, no matter how seemingly small. A couple drops of water in a bottle cap can be a breeding location for mosquitoes. Residents and visitors also need to use repellents when enjoying the Florida outdoors.”See also:Oct 5 N Engl J Med studyOct 5 N Engl J Med commentaryOct 5 Florida Health updatelast_img read more
