“There will always be a future, but there will be no other Rafa Nadal”

first_img“The other day I noticed the discuss between (Serb Novak) Djokovic and Murray. They have been chatting as in the event that they have been having espresso. Folks additionally worth these moments, “mentioned López.When referring to his new job as director of a match, in his case the Rely of Godó, Ferrer mentioned: “I’m actually having fun with the expertise. Change, since you are on the other aspect. You’re no longer the participant. You need to discover one of the best for the membership, and in addition for the gamers. However it was not troublesome. I’ve a good relationship with most of them. “About him Mutua Madrid Digital Open wherein each will take part, Feliciano López mentioned: “We additionally wish to ship a constructive message to the world of tennis. That, even whether it is stopped, we’re nonetheless right here. As well as, you’ll be capable of see the participant at house, in a nook, and within the middle of the sport. “Ferrer mentioned about it that he has been coaching. “And I don’t have volleyball within the Play. Neither in tennis nor within the Play”he mentioned with a chortle. “This week I will begin coaching if my son leaves me,” he added.On the right way to keep match throughout confinement, López mentioned: “I’ve a spinning bike at house, some dumbbells, not a lot, but to help myself a little it’s value it. I’ve misplaced weight, like two or three kilos. You lose muscle mass. I’m skinny. “Ferrer replied:” I do ‘full’ sport, but I can’t cease consuming. “López added that doing sports activities at house “serving extra to clear the thoughts than anything, to not compete once more, but to clear the thoughts. “When describing your very best participant, Ferrer indicated that he would have the serve of Karlovic, the appropriate of Federer (second Nadal), Wawrinka’s one-handed backhand, Djokovic’s two-handed backhand, Federer’s volley, Nada’s psychological powerl (“It’s unimaginable to have performed in opposition to Nadal and say other than him”, he specified), Thiem’s ​​physique, Monfils’ showmanship, the remainder of Djokovic and Murray alike (later Nishikori and Nadal) and the hand of Marc López.For Feliciano López, the perfect participant has the Karlovic serve (and Marc López, between laughs), Federer’s proper (“generally higher Nadal’s,” he added), the reverse to a hand of Wawrinka, the two-handed backhand of Djokovic and Murray, Federer’s volley, Nadal’s psychological power (“I’ve not seen anybody remedy the moments of rigidity like him,” he defined), Ferrer’s personal physique, Monfils ‘showman’ abilities, the remainder of Ferrer, Djokovic and Murray and the hand of Marc López. Former tennis participant David Ferrer He affirmed this Sunday, throughout a discuss with Feliciano López, that “there will always be a future” in Spanish tennis, but added that “There may be not going to be one other Rafa Nadal.”Within the discuss between the 2 on the social community Instagram, with López as host, Ferrer identified: “There will always be a future, but there will not be one other Rafa Nadal, nor behind him a technology of tennis gamers just like the one within the final 20 years. ““An instance is all of you. Bautista, Carreño, Davidovich, Alcaraz, Carlos Gimeno, Munar, Carlos Alcaraz has nice potential. He’s a considerably completely different participant as we speak. He’s educated by a humble man like Juan Carlos Ferrero and that’s vital. “Feliciano López agreed and mentioned: “There may be not going to be a Nadal, nor a Ferru.”Referring to the present state of affairs of confinement, Ferrer mentioned: “I don’t have time to get bored, I’ve every part tremendous sq.. Routine is crucial; I do a little sport. ““Once you watch the information or the newspaper you don’t see any constructive information. I left it a week in the past as a result of I used to be twitching. I’m upset, and I discover it. After which there are the group chats, I wish to get out of, but I can’t.

I will not cease being comfortable, “added Ferrer, now director of the Open Banc Sabadell in Barcelona.Feliciano López mentioned about it: “I’ve a arduous time fascinated about what the long run will be like, if tomorrow we are able to exit, when, in what means. It’s what I discover most troublesome to hold. The uncertainty of not realizing what will occur kills me. ““Positive, they’re bombarding you all day with destructive information … We have now sick family, others who’ve handed away, and also you add to that that every one the information is destructive. We have now to attempt to do constructive issues and lead a constructive life. I like these talks a lot, “mentioned López.Ferrer and López agreed to acknowledge the emotionality of the documentary about (the British) Andy Murray and harassed that one thing constructive concerning the confinement is that athletes now look nearer. “You’re identified extra. And on that aspect it’s constructive. That you recognize what Rafa, Murray, Djokovicâ do,” mentioned López, who directs the Mutua Madrid Open.last_img read more

The Power of Listening, Not Just Counting

first_img ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read: Posted on October 20, 2015October 13, 2016By: Kate Ramsey, Columbia University AMDDClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Last week, a report of a horrifying incident in a maternity ward appeared in my email inbox. A woman was beaten by a health provider as she died on the floor while delivering in a health facility. When it happened was anyone listening? Did anyone hear her crying out? We are listening now and most likely a response is being planned, but for this woman it is too late. Her cries have been silenced. She is only one woman, but one is too many.For the last five years I have been working closely with colleagues in Tanzania at Ifakara Health Institute and in Korogwe District to measure, explore and respond to disrespect and abuse experienced by women delivering in health facilities. In our research, we have found that women do want to be heard. Some women may not be ready or may not want to demand a voice at the highest platform, but they do want maternity providers to listen in their one-on-one interactions. They want them to listen and hear what is happening in their lives and consider their knowledge of their bodies credible and legitimate. They want to feel that their words have power and their experience matters. And through listening, care can gradually transform to better meet their expectations. Woman can begin to feel that they are being treated as a human rather than an aggregate collective.But maternity providers also resoundingly expressed a desire to be heard, for health system managers to listen to their expectations and experiences. They want them to understand that daily, they face women’s disappointment and sometimes untimely death due to health system dysfunctions. They are the people who must manage women’s expectations when practice does not and cannot yet meet policy promises. They also want the community to hear what is in their power to change and what are the health system constraints that they also need to cope with daily.How can we make sure we’re listening to women and providers – their fears, expectations, needs and experiences?  The new maternal and newborn health quality of care framework from WHO squarely places women’s experience of care as equally important to the clinical provision of care. In addition, the growing movement for respectful maternity care has acknowledged the need to care for both women and maternity providers. These provide important opportunities to listen to women and providers about what quality means to them. And while we pursue measures that will enable us to quantify women’s experience at population level, we need to listen carefully. Listening will ensure that we can develop measures that are meaningful to women and providers.In public health, there is no doubt that counting matters for planning at systems level, for understanding whether we’re making progress at the population level, and for identifying which groups are being left behind. But sometimes we need to stop and listen in our programs and our evaluations. Giving voice is not just about hearing and responding, it’s also about giving people power over the services and programs that affect their daily lives.Photo: © 2014 by Jonathan Torgovnik/Reportage by Getty Images, under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International (CC BY-NC 4.0) http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/Share this:last_img read more

Cogito ergo sum — Rene Descartes 17th century

first_img“Cogito ergo sum.” — Rene Descartes, 17th century French philosopher and mathematician.To me, software processes are a kind of intelligence, and that means to me that every program is alive. This is how I really see it.” — Benjamin Shapiro, founder of Thinking Software.You’ll get the connection soon. But first…Long story short, Shapiro, a teenaged student at an engineering military academy in St. Petersburg, Russia, had a math professor suggest he look into Boolean algebra. He went on to do some work in the computer department, where he published “Formula of Algorithm.” After deciding not to graduate as a military officer, and spending time “banished to a very cold place,” Shapiro got his diploma from a technical institute before migrating to the United States in 1979.By 1981, he was building a debugging package based on his “Formula of Algorithm,” working in Fortran and then COBOL. The debugging package morphed into a dynamic code analyzer, which is implemented in his Software Understanding Machine. The goal is to ensure business-critical software is reliable. From this work, and with his brother, Roman (who came from Russia in 1990), the company Thinking Software was founded in 1995.(Related: Why machine learning is the new AI) “I had a contract with Google, and I showed this work to their director of R&D Peter Norvig—he’s a very famous guy in artificial intelligence—and I told him what we built is different because we don’t work on data, we work on cause/effect, which makes us faster and much more efficient and secure,” Shapiro recalled. “We don’t expose people’s data. He liked it and pushed the idea of doing a proof of concept project with Google. Two years later, we had proof of concept.“We then moved to work on the Java language,” he continued. “One of the questions at that time, by another director, was how are you going to deal with race conditions? I went home and then realized this is not a missionary technology like a Software Understanding Machine, but it’s a well-known issue, and it was in addition to what we do in SUM. By the way, SUM happened to be a good acronym, because ‘Cogito ergo sum,’ by Descartes, means, ‘I think, therefore, I am.’ I really liked this combination, because the Software Understanding Machine understands cause/effect and propagates knowledge. It’s knowledge deduction.”From all of this has come Race Catcher, the company’s flagship product for ensuring software reliability. Race Catcher does dynamic analysis of code to find and understand contentions within the code. These race conditions are a well-known issue in software, but are not so easily defined. As Shapiro put it, “Stack Overflow has about 12,000 questions about what race condition is, and each question has several answers. I checked a year later, and there were 13,000 questions.”The most common definition is that race conditions occur when multiple application threads are accessing memory, and one thread alters the memory being used by another, rendering the application unreliable. Static analysis tools cannot analyze everything and return too many false positive and false negative results, Shapiro said. Dynamic tools give results as they happen, but he said they usually come with large overhead.Shapiro explained how Race Catcher works. “The first element of the Software Understanding Machine is the user interface. Some user interface builds models of software in order for a programmer to understand what the issue is. The second element is Race Catcher. It analyzes executable code, which means we don’t need source code. But the programmer, of course, needs to see source code to understand the issue. So when our product locates issues automatically during program execution, since Race Catcher is dynamic code analysis, as opposed to static analysis, issues have to be explained to programmers, and we do this automatically by dragging the issue onto the model of the code we built automatically, which comes from the Software Understanding Machine.”A third element is what Shapiro calls ARM-CM: Application Reliability Management via Collaborating Machines. He calculates that approximately 1 billion virtual machines are in service today, with the overwhelming majority running Java. ARM-CM allows multiple Race Catcher instances to become part of a local network—what he described as “conscious machines running the same applications” and ensuring reliability through a social network machines that have “common interests” and create knowledge of the applications that are running.In short, with Race Catcher, applications can automatically analyze themselves. They think, therefore, they are.last_img read more
