The NBA Players No One Passed To This Season

Here at the dawn of the NBA’s era of big brains and fancy thinking, basketball statistics are more complicated than ever. The best ones, though, still answer dead-simple questions: Which players are good? Which players are not? And of course: Which players are rarely passed the basketball? I stumbled into the answer to that last one back in 2013, and it’s about time for a 2016 update, because the NBA landscape is still dotted with players who do not know where to stand.The formulation is pretty simple: The NBA’s player-tracking SportVU technology now provides the number of passes each player has received, which I divided by the player’s minutes and then normalized to passes per 36 minutes. Only players who averaged 15 minutes per game and made it into 20 games were included, to weed out those who were not a significant part of their team’s rotation for at least a quarter of the season.1The average number of game-minutes that pass between received passes is in the table for context, too, though in the true context of a game, a minute or two of action can take several minutes to play out.2If you’re wondering, the leaderboard for the most passes received per 36 isn’t very interesting.

According to SportVU data, Roberson underperforms relative to how open his shots are — often wide-open looks from Kevin Durant or Russell Westbrook. This is enough of a trend on the Thunder that the team is tied for last in the league in 3-point percentage when left wide open (34.1 percent).Roberson’s effect on the Thunder is a good illustration of how damaging carrying a wing with no range can be, even if it doesn’t show up in his personal numbers. Roberson is shooting 62.6 percent near the basket, his overall field goal percentage is 49.4, and his true shooting percentage is 56.5 — all respectable numbers. But put him on the floor, and the OKC offense falls to a shambles. His offensive Real Plus-Minus is -1.79, more than enough to offset his +1.11 defensive RPM. Roberson plays a lot of minutes with the starters, so his raw effect on points per possession are hard to pick up, but when he’s on the court, the Thunder shoot 32.3 percent from three; when he’s on the bench, they shoot 36.5 percent. (Anthony Morrow and Dion Waiters both shoot worse from the floor than Roberson but are considerably better 3-point shooters while being just-as-considerably worse at defense.)Roberson is only 24, and plenty of guys older than he is have come up with a serviceable jumper. And the Thunder have kept on feeding him when he’s open, at least from time to time. But as the rotation tightens up heading into the playoffs, he really needs to make a few, or else we’re going to have a whole heap of Dion Waiters perpetrated upon us.Bismack Biyombo, Toronto RaptorsHere is a great American success story of sorts. Two years ago, poor Biz was so far ahead of his peers in the category of not being passed the basketball that the gulf between him and the next-closest player on the list was larger than the one between second place and eighth. Bismack did not get the basketball, and for good reason. He could not catch or dribble or shoot or pass or even really just stand in one place on the court without flummoxing a teammate, or sometimes bowling him clean over.But by last season, although his role and minutes had diminished, Biyombo was a full-fledged defensive anchor, combining exceptional rim protection with the lateral quicks to switch onto guards and help from the weak side.This season, Biyombo is averaging eight rebounds per game in just 22 minutes off the bench, and opponents are shooting 45.1 percent at the rim when Biyombo is in the vicinity, which is right in range of Rudy Gobert, Serge Ibaka and the best shot-blockers and shot-alterers in the league. In March, he set a Raptors single-game record with 25 rebounds and scored a career-high 16 points. Biyombo has been a revelation. He has not, however, frequently been passed the basketball, and for good reason.Here is a selection of plays from the month of April: Oh, dear.Cauley-Stein doesn’t just lack touch and feel in the post; there are times it seems he doesn’t know where the rim is. (And for a seven-footer, he is on the wrong end of a concerning number of soul-snatching blocks.) Going by Synergy’s play charting, Cauley-Stein went a full three months without making a field goal off of a post-up — from Nov. 19 against Miami to Feb. 19 against Denver. He missed some time in there, but that’s still a span of 26 games in which he played. For the season, those 24 post-ups have produced just 13 points.While post-ups make up just a small percentage of Cauley-Stein’s possessions, they’re the only plays where he’s asked to do much. Clearly, he has not done much with them, and the results certainly haven’t inspired much confidence in him.Andre Roberson, Oklahoma City ThunderRoberson is a 3-and-D wing who shoots 30.7 percent from three. In his defense, that’s up from his 27.1 percent lifetime number. (In his actual defense, he’s a good defender and has shot 41.7 percent on 24 threes from the right corner, which is something.5Another Thunder player, Kyle Singler, would appear on the list but fell just short of the minutes cutoff (14.5). Coincidentally, Singler is having just the worst year but has shot 35.5 percent from the left corner on 31 shots, despite shooting 30.2 overall on threes.) When he’s on the floor, he’s used almost exclusively as a spot-up shooter; 33.6 percent of his possessions come there, according to Synergy — the rest come in transition or stray cuts to the basket. Here’s his shot chart from this year, from StatMuse: There’s a certain kind of player who ends up on this list — defensive big men and wings who can’t create their own offense and only see the ball when they’re wide open under the rim or wide open from three. The bigs tend to have better efficiency rates3We’re largely going by Synergy Sports Technology’s points per possession numbers for our efficiency numbers but note when we use other metrics, like true shooting percentage. than the wings — some are even exceptional in the role — because wide-open dunks are easier shots than wide-open threes, and if the wings taking those threes could shoot, they’d see enough of the ball to avoid this list. But broadly defined efficiency can mislead: In the NBA, a player can have excellent efficiency numbers without a handle on certain crucial skills, like catching the ball or knowing where to stand.Some of those on the list are terrific players in other respects. Hassan Whiteside, Andre Drummond and DeAndre Jordan stand out here as the three who have played the most minutes and as the three names that very obviously are not like the others.Jordan is the league’s most fearsome shot blocker, leads the league in dunks for the third straight year — in large part because he’s become one of the best roll-men in the league — and every now and then, he shoots 20 or 30 free throws in a game because the NBA is absurd. Still, DJ is an example of limited touches in a limited role maximizing a player’s effectiveness.Whiteside is a lot like Jordan, although he is a better free-throw shooter and is playing for less than $1 million this season — the DeAndre Jordan hostage crisis ended last summer with Jordan signing a four-year $87.6 million contract.Drummond is a special case. He is demonstrably one of the most gifted players in the league. This season, he’s had 20 or more rebounds nine times — one less than the number of times he’s had fewer than 10. He’s bursting with potential, only 22 years old … and still not very good at offense. But according to data from SportVU, Drummond’s post-ups are Detroit’s second-most-common play type, after Reggie Jackson screen-and-rolls. This is insane. Despite his size, Drummond is in the bottom third in the league in post-up scoring efficiency, according to data from Synergy Sports Technology, yet takes 27 percent of his shots from the post. The Pistons seem set on letting Drummond learn on the job, however, because defenses have begun dropping on pick-and-rolls. Drummond is excellent on the pick-and-roll, but he and Jackson aren’t yet on the Paul-to-Jordan level of conjuring it out of thin air.The others on the list are not as easily absolved, but here’s an explanation for a few notables just the same.Willie Cauley-Stein, Sacramento KingsCauley-Stein is in a tough spot. He landed on the most dysfunctional team in the league with a coach (George Karl) who has been trying to get himself fired since the offseason; a point guard (Rajon Rondo) who has managed to turn the assist — a fundamentally unselfish statistic — into an act of stat-hoarding; and chuckers and ball-hogs (DeMarcus Cousins, Rudy Gay, Marco Belinelli, Omri Casspi, Ben McLemore) who are liable to make passionate love to the basketball right there on the Sleep Train Arena hardwood. Not many rookies will fare well in that situation.But while Cauley-Stein has looked raw for much of the season, particularly on defense, his overall offensive numbers have been impressive. According to data from Synergy, he finds most of his shots cutting to the rim, on put-backs, in transition and as the roll man in pick-and-roll.4Twenty-nine percent of Cauley-Stein’s plays are on cuts; 19 percent are put-backs; 18 percent are in transition; 15 percent are as the roll man. While he’s below average on both cuts and put-backs, those are inherently efficient play-types to begin with; just hustling into position to try a put-back or filling the lane in transition is valuable. Overall, he’s near the top of the league in raw points per possession when he actually gets to touch the ball.So why do Cauley-Stein’s teammates fail to pass him the ball, beyond the self-evident answers about being the Kings? Let’s go to the tape. Here is a selection of the 24 post-up possessions Cauley-Stein has used this season, according to Synergy. There’s a lot to absorb in this unfairly edited highlight reel of airballs, bobbled passes and more than a few indescribable sequences, but the bewilderment in the announcers’ voices at the 48-second, 1:10 and 1:40 marks says more or less what needs to be said. (A full accounting of Bismack’s plays from this month can be found here. It is not much different.)Bismack has his uses on offense. He sets wide, sturdy (often moving) screens and has finally figured out how to roll to space from time to time. But he still frequently looks lost on offense, and he still can’t really catch a basketball. When he does, he tends to keep the ball low, where it can easily be stolen — this is why the ball always seems to fly five rows into the stands after it finds its way into Biyombo’s hands.And yet Biyombo is an undeniably important member of the Raptors, who are locked into the No. 2-seed in the East and look liable to put up a fight against the Cavaliers in the playoffs. If it comes to that, interior defense will be crucial to Toronto’s success, since LeBron James teams attack the rim in the playoffs. A lot of the hard work will fall to Biyombo, who is very good at what he does but still will not be passed the ball. read more


Parts of University Challenge are edited when students cant answer questions Jeremy

first_imgIf minor edits are made they always accurately and fairly represent each team’s performanceBBC spokesman You might get a run of unanswered starter questions, they all get edited outJeremy Paxman Paxman, who was speaking publicly for the first time about his autobiography, said the episodes were edited because “as a taxpayer you do not want to think your money is being wasted”.  It is understood that contestants are not able to answer a string of questions around two to three times a recording. The quiz show, which was revived on the BBC in 1994, sees two university teams compete against each other for the chance to win points by going head-to-head on “starter for 10” questions.One starter question contestants were unable to answer recently is the word found both in the title of a senior officer in the United Kingdom’s Royal Household and in the hereditary title of one of the great officers of state, who is responsible for royal affairs at the Palace of Westminster (Chamberlain). Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. In another episode, contestants did not know what the weekly Department of Health alcohol guidelines were for men (14 units per week). They also failed to name the artist who was reportedly responsible for a small, unsigned piece of work, which was withdrawn from an auction in 2012 after a Vanity Fair article cast doubt on its authenticity (Jackson Pollock).During the talk, Paxman, who previously presented Newsnight, also labelled the BBC “infuriating” as he reiterated his call for the corporation to think again about the £145.50 licence fee it charges households every year. “The BBC is too big, it makes mistakes and then it refuses to apologise for them properly,” he said.Describing the licence fee as an “antique mechanism”, he added: “It is not difficult to devise something in the digital age.“It is clearly not feasible to continue indefinitely with a system of taxes on a particular item of household furniture, which is essentially what it is. We don’t say there is a tax on washing machines or fridge freezers or something, do we? I don’t think it can last.”A BBC spokesman said: “Viewers should not be in any doubt that University Challenge contestants are the cream of the TV quiz crop – if minor edits are made they always accurately and fairly represent each team’s performance.” To the audience at home they appear to be geniuses who can answer tricky questions about science, philosophy and literature at the drop of a hat – but the University Challenge contestants may not actually be as smart as they first seem.In fact, sometimes they fail to answer so many starter questions the episodes have to be carefully edited to keep the audience satisfied, presenter Jeremy Paxman has revealed. Speaking at Henley Literary Festival, the 66-year-old said: “I’ll let you into a secret [about how] University Challenge is recorded.”If we get a run of questions, it doesn’t happen very often, say one show in seven or eight or 10 or something, you might get a run of unanswered starter questions, they all get edited out.”last_img read more


Top counterterrorism officer says gaps in our knowledge about Abedi led to

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Mrs May said it was possible a wider group was linked to the bombing at a crowded concert hall, prompting the increase in security a little more than two weeks before the general election. Operation Temperer – the government plan to put up to 5,000 soldiers on the streets in response to a major terrorist threat – was devised in 2015.Ass Com Rowley, the country’s senior counter-terrorism officer, said initially soldiers would replace police officers at fixed locations but subsequently they could “augment our patrols” at transport hubs and major events. He said officers will be working “really closely” with organisers of forthcoming major events to review security and policing arrangements.Events will only go ahead “when it’s sensible and safe to do so,” he said. Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said “gaps in our knowledge” about Salman Abedi had led to the increased threat level.Police on Tuesday said they believed British-born Abedi, aged 22, carried out Britain’s deadliest bombing in nearly 12 years and Prime Minister Theresa May said another attack could be imminent. Theresa May Credit:PAcenter_img Theresa May  “There are many big events across the country over the next couple of weeks, we are going to be working really closely with the organisers to review the security, review their stewarding arrangements, review our policing arrangements and make sure that decisions are taken that events only go ahead when it’s sensible and safe to do so,” he said.Ass Com Rowley acknowledged it was “unusual” but added: “This is professional and well thought through. For this brief period, while we have these lines of inquiry to accelerate and to pursue, we can protect and reassure the public with this stance across the country.”   An independent body which sets the threat level recommended it be raised to “critical” from “severe” for the first time since June 2007.”This means that their assessment is not only that an attack remains highly likely but that a further attack may be imminent,” May said in a televised statement from her Downing Street Office after a meeting of the government’s crisis response committee. “Armed police officers responsible for duties such as guarding key sites will be replaced by members of the armed forces … You might also see military personnel deployed at certain events, such as concerts and sports matches.”last_img read more


Metminco proceeds with development of Los Calatos CuMo project

first_imgMetminco reports that Runge Pincock Minarco (RPM) has completed the mining study of Los Calatos in accordance with a defined scope of work. Development of Los Calatos will commence with an underground, sub-level caving, mining operation, with a concentrator using conventional sulphide flotation. Favourable economics are estimated at a production rate of 6 Mt/y, producing 765,000 t of copper in concentrate over a life of mine of 17 years. It has been designated a “Project of National Interest” by the Peruvian Government.Los Calatos is located in southern Peru near, and in a similar geological setting to, three large operating copper-molybdenum mines, namely Cuajone, Toquepala and Cerro Verde. Production from mines in this region exceeded 600,000 t of copper metal in 2012. With the proposed upgrade to the Toquepala, Cuajone and Cerro Verde mines and the development of the Tia Maria and Quellaveco projects, production from this belt is expected to increase to more than 1.3 Mt/y of copper metal. Molybdenum constitutes a significant by-product of copper mining from this belt.Los Calatos can be accessed via the Pan American Highway from Moquegua, and a 50 km unsealed road north of the highway to the project. The port of Ilo is located about 160 km by road to the southwest of the project area.Metminco will now engage with financial and strategic partners to fast track development. The next steps are commencement of pre-feasibility / feasibility study, permitting and EIS studies.Estimated mineable quantity of re is 94 t @ 0.88% Cu and 510 ppm Mo. Annual steady state production rate is expected to be 48,500 t/y of copper in concentrate.Metminco reports “excellent regional infrastructure. Exploration targets may complementdevelopment,” and there is “expansion potential with increasing copper price.”last_img read more


Comminution 18 conference another success

first_imgMinerals Engineering International’s (MEI’s) Comminution ’18 conference has wrapped up for another two years, and Barry Wills shared some of the highlights of this year’s contributions on his recent blog. CEEC picked out some of these in particular.Wills said that with higher needs for fine grinding combined with advanced flotation, reducing energy and water in comminution and other mineral processing was becoming even more critical. The Comminution ’18 conference is a key to how industry can tackle this challenge. He said new ideas shared at Comminution ’18 included new crusher developments, HPGRs, fine grinding devices and circuits – “all offering new approaches and much hope for the future.”“Liberation, achieved through comminution, is one of the most relevant aspects in ore processing. The global efficiency of a plant often depends on the performance of the grinding circuit, so there is a compromise between particle size, energy consumption and liberation. An adequate prediction of the liberation of grinding products can be helpful in reducing overgrinding, and therefore, reducing energy consumption without disturbing downstream operations,” he said.Modelling and simulation to achieve the best outcomes are an important part of the solution, with many speakers sharing new work and new approaches.Presenters included many CEEC sponsors, such as Bianco Foggiatto and Rajiv Chandramohan of Ausenco, Hamid Manouchehri of Sandvik, Haijie Li of FLSmidth, Chris Steyn of Anglo American, Greg Anderson from Glencore Technology, representatives from Metso and more.CEEC was pleased to again be an industry advocate for this conference. Nick Wilshaw, CEEC Advocate and Mike Battersby, CEEC Director attended the conference and talked to many about CEEC’s not-for-profit work.  Wilshaw’s Grinding Solutions team contributed throughout and Battersby shared information on the Ro-Star mill for ultra-fine grinding, highlighting the critical collaboration path towards commercialisation in Europe.Emmanuel Asakpo, of Newmont, shared how improvements were made at the Ahafo operation in Ghana, supplementing last year’s CEEC Medal winning paper by Aidan Giblett and Steven Hart of Newmont. Mark De Geus shared a new ‘virtual sensor’ approach for SAG mill performance using operational data, helping reduce scheduled liner wear stoppages and optimise ball charge levels. Markus Stapelmann and Hakan Benzer of Loesche described the first application of a vertical roller mill in a sulphide copper-gold ore project.Leading researchers presented from around the world, including the participants from the Global Comminution Collaborative. Hakan Benzer of Hacettepe University, Turkey, talked about how novel energy efficient comminution circuit flowsheets can incorporate energy efficient dry comminution technologies such as HPGR and Vertimill for significant energy savings. Holger Lieberwirth, of TU Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany, asked a question in his keynote lecture “will SAG mills still be relevant in 50 years’ time?”In introducing Hamid Manouchehri from CEEC sponsor Sandvik, wills noted that mining is energy intensive, and grinding was responsible for consuming about 40% of the energy in the whole mining chain.“Inefficiency in grinding has long been an outstanding problem, in particular when production of fines and ultra-fines are considered. Unlike milling, crushers are much more energy efficient, therefore it is logical to push the comminution process towards the crushing stage for energy efficiency. Furthermore, crushing is done dry which reduces water consumption and related potential water contamination,” he said.Manouchehri’s presentation shared new crushing chamber technology to tackle these challenges.last_img read more

Fusion GPS Founders Senate Judiciary Testimony Released

first_imgPablo Martinez Monsivais/APThe testimony of Glenn Simpson, co-founder of the research firm Fusion GPS, was released by the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday. Simpson testified in August.Updated at 2:38 p.m. ET.The former British intelligence officer who authored the infamous Russia dossier wanted to show it to the FBI because he was concerned that then-presidential candidate Donald Trump was being “blackmailed.”Christopher Steele told the political research firm that hired him, Fusion GPS, that what he uncovered from Russian sources was serious enough to bring to the attention of U.S. law enforcement authorities, according to a transcript released on Tuesday.The transcript, of an interview that Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson did with the Senate Judiciary Committee, was released on Tuesday by the committee’s top Democrat, Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California.Steele went to the FBI with the initial reports that would later form the dossier on alleged Trump-Russia ties as early as late June or early July of 2016, Simpson testified.“Chris said he was very concerned about whether this represented a national security threat and said … he thought we were obligated to tell someone in government,” Simpson told the Senate Judiciary Committee.“He thought from his perspective there was … a security issue about whether a presidential candidate was being blackmailed.”Simpson said he neither encouraged nor discouraged Steele about going to the FBI.“This was like, you know, you’re driving to work and you see something happen and you call 911,” Simpson told investigators. He likened the sense of responsibility he said Steele felt to the professional duties that attorneys have in some cases to report a crime if they learn of one.Steele eventually met with an FBI legal attache in Rome in September 2016, more than two months after the initial outreach.Steele later told to Simpson that he believed the FBI would consider his information credible because the Bureau had corroborating intelligence, including from a human source within the Trump organization.Simpson did not identify the source in his Judiciary Committee testimony.But in the late stages of the 2016 presidential campaign, Steele broke off with the FBI, Simpson said, because he did not believe it was taking him seriously enough.One reason, according to Simpson, was a story in The New York Times on Oct. 31, 2016 that said the FBI hadn’t found any connections between Trump world and the Russian attack on the election.“I understand Chris severed his relationship with the FBI out of concern that he didn’t know what was happening inside the FBI and there was a concern that the FBI was being manipulated for political ends by the Trump people,” Simpson told the Senate Judiciary Committee.Simpson gave testimony before the committee in August. The former reporter for the Wall Street Journal commissioned what proved to be Steele’s salacious — and unproven — dossier on Trump’s alleged ties to Russia.NPR has not detailed the material contained in the dossier because it remains unverified, but it describes a concerted effort by powerful Russians to cultivate a relationship with Trump and his camp. It also describes lascivious behavior that might embarrass Trump or could have been used as leverage to influence him.The Republican chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Sen. Chuck Grassley, issued a criminal referral last week for Steele, alleging the committee had reason to believe that the former spy had lied to authorities about his conversations with the press regarding the dossier.A spokesman for Grassley, Taylor Foy, called it “confounding” that Feinstein released the transcript “unilaterally,” over the objections of the Republican majority. This will hurt the work of the committee to bring in future witnesses, he said.“Feinstein’s unilateral decision was made as the committee is still trying to secure testimony from other witnesses, including Jared Kushner,” Foy said. “Her action undermines the integrity of the committee’s oversight work and jeopardizes its ability to secure candid voluntary testimony relating to the independent recollections of future witnesses.”Fusion GPS was first hired in 2015 by a conservative donor to investigate Trump’s background in the early stages of the Republican presidential nominating process. Later, as Trump’s pathway to the Republican nomination became more assured, the firm was hired by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee to continue that research.As part of that research, Fusion GPS hired Steele, who had been the head of MI6’s Russia desk.The resulting memos, written over the summer and fall of 2016, were explosive: They alleged that the Russian government had compromising material on the president and that Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to defeat Clinton during the presidential elections.Simpson has testified for more than 20 hours before three congressional committees regarding his firm’s role in commissioning the report. On Jan. 2, Simpson and fellow Fusion GPS co-founder Peter Fritsch called on congressional investigators to release their testimony. Share Copyright 2018 NPR.

Triscina Grey DCs Longest Running Full Time Radio Host

first_imgAs the New Year begins, so does another year for Triscina Grey, the areas longest running midday radio personality and full-time radio host on WHUR 96.3FM.  However, her triumphs were not given to her with a silver spoon.Triscina Grey is a full-time radio host on WHUR 96.3FM. (Courtesy Photo)“Being at WHUR has been an amazing experience,” she said. “It’s just been a blessing to grow with WHUR since 1991 and connect with my listeners because they mean the world to me.” Grey attributes her success in radio to being able to adjust with the times.However, it hasn’t always been an easy road.“I have to move with the times. If I don’t, I would have stayed stuck,” she said, referring to the radio’s move to a digital platform, a new Portable People Meter ratings system and succeeding in a heavily male-dominated industry.Grey said, throughout her career she had to “perfect her craft” by rotating through several shifts, putting in long hours, relocating to positions on both coasts in the U.S and listening to critiques.“I have always been open to constructive criticism…and always know that I can get better,” she said, mentioning the radio industry is very competitive and that many aspiring radio personalities, including herself, face the lack of available full time positions.“Sometimes I had to go backwards to move forwards,” she said. “I never gave up.”Her determination to be the best at what she does also helps her structure her show by appealing to fans with Cafe 96, a lunch hour segment; “Get Off Your Buns and Move,” a health initiative and a daily inspirational “10:10 a.m. Mini Midday Message”“I’m so grateful for the loyalty I have from my listeners. I am very humbled by that,” she said. “But my mission is for them.”Even through the hard areas, Grey said she still has a strong support unit behind her.  “I am appreciative for [the] General Manager Jim Watkins…and the belief he has had in me throughout the years,” she said. “He always believed in me and my talent.”Throughout her career, she recalled traveling to Brazil, China, and Aruba using her social gift to “reach out and touch” people,  noting fond experiences that included getting a birthday shout out from Stevie Wonder and conducting interviews with musical legends such as Smokey Robinson, Patti LaBelle, Aretha Franklin, and many others. Grey also said she is scheduled to host a world tour to Italy this year from April 9 to April 19.She said she doesn’t just joyfully reflect on certain experiences in her career, to her they all had some unique aspect that made them special.“I think every moment that I go on stage is a highlight for me,” she said. “All the moments are special when out on stage hosting concerts, shows and plays.”As the “Queen of The Midday,” Grey has consistently ranked as number one with all listeners, including WHUR’s target audience. Her show airs Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.As a next step in her career, Grey said she aspires to transition more into television. “It is something that is on my bucket list.”“First and foremost I’ve learned how important it is to give all glory and praises to the heavenly father,” she said. “You cannot take anything for granted.”Part of her advice to aspiring talent is to volunteer in your field. “You have to do it, you have to be, you have to become it,” she said, mentioning that along with getting practical experience, young professionals also need to network and portray a high level of ambition.Interact with Grey on Twitter @Triscinagrey, Facebook page: Friends of Triscina Grey and on www.TriscinaGrey.com.last_img read more

Burwell announced measurable goals and a timeline to move the Medicare program and the healthcare system at large toward paying providers based on the quality, rather than the quantity of care they give patients. The announcement was made in a meeting with nearly two dozen leaders representing consumers, insurers, providers and business leaders.HHS has set a goal of tying 30 percent of traditional, or fee-for-service, Medicare payments to quality or value through alternative payment models, such as accountable care organizations (ACOs) or bundled payment arrangements, by the end of 2016; 50 percent of payments would be tied to these models by the end of 2018. HHS also set a goal of tying 85 percent of all traditional Medicare payments to quality or value by 2016 and 90 percent by 2018 through programs such as the Hospital Value Based Purchasing and the Hospital Readmissions Reduction Programs. This is the first time in the history of the Medicare program that HHS has set explicit goals for alternative payment models and value-based payments.To make these goals scalable beyond Medicare, Secretary Burwell also announced the creation of a Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network. Through the Learning and Action Network, HHS will work with private payers, employers, consumers, providers, states and state Medicaid programs, and other partners to expand alternative payment models into their programs. HHS will intensify its work with states and private payers to support adoption of alternative payments models through their own aligned work, sometimes even exceeding the goals set for Medicare. The network will hold its first meeting in March 2015, and more details will be announced in the near future.The Affordable Care Act created a number of new payment models that move the needle even further toward rewarding quality. These models include ACOs, primary care medical homes and new models of bundling payments for episodes of care. In these alternative payment models, healthcare providers are accountable for the quality and cost of the care they deliver to patients. Providers have a financial incentive to coordinate care for their patients, who are therefore less likely to have duplicative or unnecessary X-rays, screenings and tests.  In 2011, Medicare made almost no payments to providers through alternative payment models, but today such payments represent approximately 20 percent of Medicare payments. The goals announced represent a 50 percent increase by 2016. To put this in perspective, in 2014, Medicare fee-for-service payments were $362 billion.  For more information: www.cms.gov FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Sponsored Content | Case Study | Radiation Dose Management | August 13, 2019 The Challenge of Pediatric Radiation Dose Management Radiation dose management is central to child patient safety.

Detained AlJazeera journalist to remain in German custody

first_imgMansour, 52, a well-known journalist with the Qatar-based broadcaster’s Arabic service, was detained at Berlin’s Tegel airport on Saturday on an Egyptian arrest warrant, his lawyers said. Mansour, who holds dual Egyptian-British nationality, was trying to board a Qatar Airways flight to Doha, the station reported.Martin Steltner, a spokesman for the Berlin prosecutor’s office, said Sunday that Mansour would be taken to a prison in the city and that further decisions on his future will be made next week.A government judicial official told the AP there would probably be a decision next week on whether Mansour has to remain in custody. In addition, the Berlin Court of Justice would decide — once it gets a request for extradition from Egypt — whether Mansour can be extradited or whether the case is politically motivated.Even if the court rules in favor of an extradition, the German government can still veto that.Mansour’s detention is the latest in a long series of legal entanglements between Egypt and satellite news channels. According to court documents, he was sentenced in absentia to 15 years in prison, alongside two Muslim Brotherhood members and an Islamic preacher, for allegedly torturing a lawyer in Tahrir Square in 2011, a charge both he and the channel rejects. Comments   Share   Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility BERLIN (AP) — A prominent Al-Jazeera journalist will remain in German custody for a second night, prosecutors said Sunday, adding they have not yet decided whether to extradite him to Egypt or set him free.As dozens of supporters protested Sunday in front of the Berlin court building where Ahmed Mansour was being held, his lawyer, Fazli Altin, called for the journalist’s immediate release, saying that Germany was getting involved in a politically tainted case.

All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Altin said Mansour was accused in the warrant “of having harmed the reputation of Egypt massively” and of having committed torture.“It’s unacceptable for the freedom of press and embarrassing for Germany that Mansour is being held here on these clearly political allegations,” he said.Patrick Teubner, a second lawyer for Mansour, said the journalist had been traveling on his British passport when he was detained. The U.K. confirmed that it was providing consular assistance to him.Both of the journalist’s lawyers expressed surprise that Mansour had been detained at all. They said they thought Interpol had put out a note on Mansour, which would show up at passport controls, but that Interpol had not officially asked for the arrest of Mansour.“According to our knowledge, Interpol refused to initiate an international arrest warrant on Mansour, so it’s not really clear why he was detained at all,” said Altin.The German prosecutor’s office declined to comment on the issue Sunday and the German border patrol refused to say on what allegations Mansour had been detained.Egyptian Foreign Ministry spokesman Badr Abdelattie told the AP, however, that Germany arrested Mansour based on the red flag put for him by the Interpol. He said Egyptian judicial authorities, including the chief prosecutor in Cairo, were speaking with German authorities to clarify what crimes he is wanted for. Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Sponsored Stories Top Stories The lawyer had filed a complaint saying he had been held in a tourist agency office overlooking Tahrir square at the height of protests against former President Hosni Mubarak in 2011.Video footage of the incident aired by local media shows the lawyer being kicked to the ground, his hands tied behind his back. A member of the Muslim Brotherhood, who claims the lawyer was a police agent trying to infiltrate the protests, is seen in the video, but not Mansour. Later, the journalist later interviewed the Islamic preacher about what had happened.His arrest is the result of “Egypt’s terrible revenge against journalists that cross the regime,” press freedom watchdog Reporters Without Borders said in a statement Sunday, adding if Germany did extradite him “it will be putting itself at service of a dictatorial regime and will dishonor itself.”The Committee to Protect Journalists also issued a statement calling for Mansour’s immediate release.“Egypt has launched a politically motivated campaign against Al-Jazeera and is now abusing the international system,” said Sherif Mansour, the group’s Middle East and North Africa program coordinator. Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Interpol didn’t immediately respond to calls and messages seeking a comment.In a video posted on Mansour’s Facebook page after he was questioned, he lashes out at German authorities for detaining him.“Regrettably, they told me that the request to arrest me is a German request and it is not based on Interpol,” he said, accusing Germany of being complicit with President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi’s government in Egypt.It wasn’t immediately clear who was posting to Mansour’s Facebook account, or who made the video.Mansour, who is known for his “Without Borders” program, recently conducted an interview with the head of the Nusra Front, the al-Qaida branch fighting in Syria’s civil war, which aired last month from an undisclosed location in Syria. German media reported that Mansour was in Germany for an interview he conducted here for his show.About 80 protesters gathered outside the Berlin courthouse Sunday, holding up his picture and shouting “Free Mansour!”“We don’t understand why Mansour was detained in Berlin,” said Ali Alawady, a member of the German-Egyptian Union for Democracy who helped organize the protest. “He is an innocent journalist who is unrightfully persecuted in Egypt.” FILE- In this Jan. 1, 2015, file photo, staff members of Al-Jazeera International work at the news studio in Doha, Qatar.
