The watchdog called for the company to change its licensing regime and submit to compliance monitoring.Unsurprisingly, Qualcomm filed for a stay on enforcement, because it could suffer irreparable damage while an appeal is pending.Reuters reported LG’s existing deal runs until 30 June, meaning it will expire before the result of Qualcomm’s appeal is known.The consumer electronics giant said Qualcomm is trying to “put a sweeping US antitrust decision against it on hold” in its renewal negotiations.What is less clear is the terms on which LG and Qualcomm’s procurement relationship continues while the chip vendor is still embroiled in its legal dispute.

Las Vegas Marks Third Year Since Deadliest U.S. Mass Shooting

Las Vegas Marks Third Year Since Deadliest U.S. Mass Shooting

first_img“Three years ago today, a heinous act of violence rained down on our city, our county and our state,” Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak told a modest gathering at an open-air amphitheater at the Clark County Government Center. His voice cracked with emotion behind his coronavirus face mask as he recalled “everyone involved that helped us get through those tragic times.” Related LAS VEGAS (AP) – The sun rose Thursday over a somber ceremony marking the third anniversary of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, as Las Vegas remembered the excruciating night when 58 people were killed at an outdoor country music festival in 2017. “I, for one, will always be changed because he wanted to do something for the families,” Rivera said of Zanis. Michael Bailey, right, of Highland, Calif. embraces Joanna Fuentes, of Whittier, Calif., during a ceremony Thursday, Oct. 1, 2020, on the anniversary of the mass shooting three years earlier in Las Vegas. The ceremony was held for survivors and victim’s families of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. (AP Photo/John Locher) The BLAST Approach: Rethinking the Way We Approach MCI TriagePlanning, Training & Asking Questions Can Help EMS Prepare for MCIsLas Vegas Route 91 Harvest Festival Shooting, After Action Report “Rather than let tragedy define the city, Nevadans did what you always do in hard times,” the former vice president said. “You were resilient.” Paddock, 64, a former accountant and high-stakes video poker player, had assembled a cache of assault-style weapons fitted with rapid-fire “bump stock” devices and high-capacity magazines. Victims and families are due in coming months to receive a total of $800 million in compensation, while the company acknowledges no liability. It will pay $49 million and its insurance companies will pay $751 million. “Our hearts continue to break for the victims and their families,” she said. “They are in our prayers today.” “We are all a statistic,” Albert Rivera, father of slain 21-year-old Jordyn Rivera, told the amphitheater audience. “We are all part of this unwanted fraternity that we didn’t choose to be a part of. But because of this tragedy, a new family was born.” Rivera, of La Verne, California, also marked the death in May of Greg Zanis, a carpenter from Aurora, Illinois, “who took it upon himself to build a simple white cross for each precious life lost.” Authorities said gunfire lasted than 10 minutes and the shooter, Stephen Paddock, killed himself with a handgun before police blasted through doors that had been bracketed shut at his suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay. A Nevada judge on Wednesday signed off on a broad settlement involving MGM Resorts International, corporate owner of the hotel and the concert venue, and lawsuits involving more than 4,000 plaintiffs. Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo announced Thursday he was raising the department’s death toll from the shooting to 60. He drew local criticism in recent weeks for refusing to increase the number despite coroners’ rulings that two women died during the past year of wounds received three years ago. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden issued a statement calling the shooting “an act of pure malice, and yet another appalling act of gun violence – the kind that takes the lives of 100 Americans every day.” The ceremony drew perhaps 200 survivors, friends and elected officials. Plans to host no more than 50 people expanded on Tuesday to allow up to 250 when the governor, a Democrat, relaxed some statewide COVID-19 pandemic crowd restrictions. Las Vegas police and the FBI found that he meticulously planned the attack and said he acted alone. They theorized that he sought notoriety, but said they never determined a clear motive for the attack. The city’s mayor was due to host an after-dark reading of the names of the dead at a commemorative garden beginning at 10:05 p.m., the time the shooting started. At the White House, President Donald Trump’s press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, kicked off a Thursday press briefing marking the anniversary. Authorities said more than 850 people were injured in the attack by a lone shooter firing from upper-floor windows of the Mandalay Bay resort into an outdoor concert crowd of 22,000 below. Police later said 413 of the injured suffered bullet or shrapnel wounds, others were injured fleeing the concert venue. “Victim families will forever be in our hearts from 1 October,” he said, “and we will never, never forget what happened that day or the lives that were lost and the lives that were changed.” Remembrances around Las Vegas ranged from a lawmaker setting out on a 58-kilometer (36-mile) fundraising run to blood drives to an invitation for survivors of the shooting to get tattoos. Images of the crosses in front of the famous “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign became an iconic reminder of the shooting. MGM Resorts had faced dozens of lawsuits in several states accusing it of failing to protect the concert crowd or stop Paddock from spending several days amassing his arsenal of weapons and ammunition before opening fire.last_img read more

COVID-19 Scan for May 29, 2020

COVID-19 Scan for May 29, 2020

first_imgStudy: 11% of diabetics die within 1 week of hospitalization for COVID-19The first major study of diabetics hospitalized with COVID-19 shows more than 1 in 10 die within 7 days of admission, and about 1 in 5 is intubated within 1 week. The study appears today in Diabetologia.The analysis, named the CORONADO study, was conducted across 53 French hospitals from Mar 10 through 31 and included 1,317 patients diagnosed as having COVID-19 and diabetes.  The vast majority (89%) had type 2 diabetes, and 3% had type 1. Men constituted 69% of the patients. Twenty-nine percent of patients either died (140 patients, 10.6%) or were mechanically ventilated by day 7. Only 18.0% of patients were discharged by day 7.Microvascular and macrovascular diabetic complications were found in 46.8% and 40.8% of cases, respectively, the authors said. Neither long-term glucose control nor current insulin use was found to increase the risk of death. Instead, as in the general population, only age and body mass index (BMI) were associated with worsening outcomes for patients.”BMI was positively and independently associated with the primary outcome, which is largely driven by tracheal intubation,” the authors said. They add that their findings could be reassuring to well-managed type 1 diabetics, as the study found no deaths among type 1 diabetics under the age of 65. May 29 Diabetologia study  New York COVID-19 case series: High kidney injury, death ratesAn analysis of the first 1,000 patients treated for COVID-19 at a large teaching hospital in New York City found that patients had more underlying health conditions, longer intubations, and higher rates of kidney injury compared with similar reports from other countries. New York–based researchers reported their findings—including a 21% death rate—today in BMJ.The authors examined the electronic medical records of patients hospitalized at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center from Mar 1 to Apr 5. Of the 1,000 patients, 150 came in through the emergency department and 614 were admitted to the hospital, with 236 admitted or transferred to the intensive care unit (ICU).The most common comorbidities were high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity. ICU patients tended to be older and male, with longer stays. Acute kidney injury was seen in 78.0% of ICU patients, with 35.2% needing dialysis. The authors saw a dual pattern with regard to intubation following symptom onset, some at 3 to 4 days and another group at 9 days. As of Apr 30, 211 people (21.1%) had died, and 90 (9.0%) were still in the hospital.The dual pattern for intubation could suggest a biphasic disease course, the researchers wrote, and the renal complication was strikingly higher than other reports, with limited intravenous fluids, toxicity from the disease process, or increased comorbidities as potential contributing factors.The authors said the findings could help guide clinical practice, especially regarding vigilance the development of breathing problems, even after conditions appear to be stabilizing.May 29 BMJ studylast_img read more

ACS:Law cannot drop filesharing cases – judge

ACS:Law cannot drop filesharing cases – judge

first_imgThe Patents County Court yesterday stayed the hearing of actions for alleged illegal file-sharing, brought by London firm ACS:Law on behalf of its clients MediaCAT. His Honour Judge Birss refused to discontinue the cases in the manner requested by the claimants, saying the notices of discontinuance were an abuse of the court’s process and ‘avoid judicial scrutiny of the underlying claims’. The 26 cases were the first to be taken to court, after ACS:Law sent letters to thousands of consumers accusing them of illegally downloading copyrighted material over the internet. MediaCAT, a company that pursued alleged infringements on behalf of owners of copyrighted material, tried earlier this year through its lawyers to discontinue the proceedings, but the judge refused to allow the claims to be dropped because the copyright holders were not in court. Had the judge discontinued the cases, the copyright holders themselves could still have pursued the defendants. At that hearing Birss said: ‘I am getting the impression with every twist and turn since I started looking at these cases that there is a desire to avoid any judicial scrutiny.’ At yesterday’s hearing he said Media CAT and ACS:Law have a ‘very real interest in avoiding public scrutiny of the cause of action’ because, in parallel to the 26 court cases, a ‘wholesale letter-writing campaign’, based on the threat of legal action, was being conducted from which revenues were being generated. Birss noted that ACS:Law received 65% of the revenue from the letter-writing exercise and said: ‘Whether it was intended to or not, I cannot imagine a system better designed to create disincentives to test the issues in court. Why take cases to court and test the assertions when one can just write more letters and collect payments from a proportion of the recipients?’ The case has been listed again later this month for the owners of the copyrighted material in question to attend if they wish to pursue the actions. Otherwise the lawyers for the defendants will apply for the cases to be struck out and for the issue of costs to be considered. Michael Forrester, an intellectual property partner at national firm Ralli, which represents five of the defendants, said: ‘It was important for all the defendants in these matters that discontinuance was properly obtained so no collateral advantage could be obtained against them by anyone not a party to these proceeding’. He said the case concerned consumers who had explained that they could not possibly have uploaded or downloaded copyrighted protected material, as alleged against them, but who were still pursued. ‘The legal basis for the claims made against these alleged file sharers involves complex legal and technical principles. These are extremely difficult for a lay person to understand and can mean an innocent person is being pursued,’ said Forrester. Andrew Crossley, sole principal at ASC: Law closed down his firm on 3 February 2011, after withdrawing from the case in January, citing threats to his life over his involvement in the matter. He declined to comment. An SRA spokesman said the closure would not affect its ongoing investigation into the firm’s conduct. MediaCAT is also understood to have closed its doors. It is understood that the lawyers representing ACS:Law’s insurers were in court, though that has not been confirmed by them.last_img read more

PI appeal denied in Meza case

PI appeal denied in Meza case

first_imgBy Gaige [email protected] state appeals court panel has unanimously denied the City of Port Isabel’s interlocutor appeal in a lawsuit between the city and former city manager Edward Meza. The state’s Thirteenth Court of Appeals, which serves Cameron County and several other South Texas counties, in a July 2 memorandum opinion by Justice Gloria Benavidez, affirmed the 444th District Court of Cameron County’s denial of the City Port Isabel’s motion for dismissal. The appeals court heard oral arguments from the city’s attorney, Gilberto Hinojosa, and Meza’s attorney, Daniel Goldberg, in October 2019.Meza’s case was first argued in the federal Southern District Court of Texas in 2016, after he was fired by the City of Port Isabel in 2015 and did not receive a severance package he and the city agreed upon in 2010. The city alleges the agreement and or contract for Meza’s severance package was not valid, voting to rescind the severance package in May 2015 that was approved in 2010 by previous city commissioners. The case moved to the 444th District Court of Cameron County, where the City of Port Isabel had filed a preliminary motion for dismissal before the case reached a jury. Judge David Sanchez denied the motion, and the City of Port Isabel responded with the appeal just denied by the Thirteenth Court of Appeals. “When will the City just pay Mr. Meza what it long ago voted to pay him, which by now is less than the attorney fees that the City will also be responsible for?” Goldberg said to the PRESS in an emailed statement. Port Isabel City Manager Jared Hockema said the city will be requesting a rehearing en banc, where all judges of an appellate court hear a case, rather than one judge or a panel of judges. Hockema said the city disagrees with Benavidez’s opinion.Want the whole story? Pick up a copy of the Port Isabel-South Padre Press, or subscribe to our E-Edition by clicking here.
