A glance at the eight victims of Toronto serial killer Bruce McArthurA glance at the eight victims of Toronto serial killer Bruce McArthur

first_imgTORONTO — Here is a glance at the victims of serial killer Bruce McArthur, who has pleaded guilty to eight counts of first-degree murder:MAJEED KAYHANThe 58-year-old Toronto man was killed on or about Oct. 18, 2012. Police investigated his death as part of Project Houston, which ran from November 2012 to April 2014 and probed the disappearances of three men who went missing from Toronto’s gay village. The probe was closed after yielding neither suspects nor leads on what happened to the men. Kayhan’s death was sexual in nature. SOROUSH MAHMUDIThe 50-year-old was killed on or about Aug. 15, 2015. He was reported missing by his family in east Toronto. A ligature was used in Mahmudi’s death, which was sexual in nature. A coat found in McArthur’s van contained Mahmudi’s DNA. The same coat was connected to the staging of other deceased victims. DEAN LISOWICKLisowick, of no fixed address, was killed on or about April 23, 2016. He was 43 or 44 years old and was never reported missing. Lisowick didn’t fit the profile of the earlier victims, who were gay and of Middle Eastern descent. A ligature was used in Lisowick’s murder, which was sexual in nature. Jewelry belonging to Lisowick was found in McArthur’s bedroom.  SELIM ESENEsen, 44, of Toronto, was killed on or about April 16, 2017. The disappearance became part of a police investigation called Project Prism, launched in August 2017. Five months later, McArthur was charged with Esen’s presumed death. A ligature was used in his murder, and there was evidence of confinment with ropes. Esen’s DNA as well as the weapon used in his murder were found inside McArthur’s van. Esen’s notebook was later found in McArthur’s apartment.ANDREW KINSMANThe 49-year-old Toronto man was killed on or about June 26, 2017. Kinsman, who was also a subject of Project Prism, had a sexual relationship with McArthur. Kinsman’s sisters said they searched for their brother for six months before police eventually charged McArthur in his death. A ligature was used in his murder as well as confinment with ropes. Video surveillance showed Kinsman getting into McArthur’s van outside Kinsman’s home. Kinsman’s DNA and the weapon used in his murder were found inside McArthur’s van.SKANDARAJ NAVARATNAMThe 40-year-old was killed on or about Sept. 6, 2010. During the investigation, police found a piece of leather lacing from McArthur’s van that contained Navaratnam’s DNA. A bracelet belonging to Navaratnam was found in McArthur’s bedroom.ABDULBASIR FAIZIFaizi was killed on or about Dec. 29, 2010. The 42-year-old was last seen in Toronto’s gay village. His vehicle was found near the home of one of McArthur’s landscaping clients. Faizi’s disappearance was also investigated as part of Project Houston.KIRUSHNA KANAGARATNAMKanagaratnam arrived in Toronto from Sri Lanka in 2010 and police believe he died on or about Jan. 6, 2016, at age 37. He was never reported missing and unlike McArthur’s other victims, Kanagaratnam had no clear ties to the LGBTQ community. A ligature was used in his murder, which was sexual in nature. An unnamed international agency helped identify Kanagaratnam after investigators released a heavily edited photo of a dead man in a plea for public help.SOURCE: Toronto policeThe Canadian Presslast_img read more

WatchBank of Canadas Stephen Poloz issues call to arms for mortgage marketWatchBank of Canadas Stephen Poloz issues call to arms for mortgage market

OTTAWA — Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz says it’s time for fresh ideas when it comes to Canadians’ mortgage options.Poloz used a speech Monday to call for more choice in the country’s mortgage marketplace. He made arguments in favour of several possibilities such as encouraging borrowers to choose renewal terms longer than five years, the creation of a market for private, mortgage-based securities and the launch of shared-equity mortgages for first-time home buyers.More innovation would help boost flexibility for borrowers, lenders and investors, while also lowering risks in the financial system, Poloz said in Winnipeg. Toronto housing market starts buying season with a bang, sales up 17% Vancouver’s housing market is dismal — but you still need six-figure income to get your foot in the door Housing market no longer considered highly vulnerable after prices ease, CMHC says “To be clear, the system is not broken — it has served Canadians and financial institutions well,” he said in his speech to the Canadian Credit Union Association and Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce.“But we should not stop looking for improvements and I invite all of you to join this effort.”Poloz made the recommendations at a time when the central bank is monitoring three key housing-market stories. He listed them as the oil-slump-driven slowdown in Alberta and Saskatchewan, steady growth in many other parts of Canada and the steep drop in resale activity in Toronto and Vancouver following the introduction of stricter mortgage guidelines.Looking ahead, he predicted the overall Canadian housing sector to start growing again later this year as the Vancouver and Toronto markets stabilize.In a news conference following the speech, Poloz offered more details about his take on the two big housing markets.Poloz said the fundamentals — like population growth and job creation — in those cities have been “really strong” and he expects they’ve “put a floor” under the adjustment process. The still-low interest rates remain quite attractive, he added.He credited the tougher mortgage guidelines, which brought in interest-rate stress tests, for working as they were designed. They helped improve the quality of loans and stop the speculative increase in house prices in Vancouver and Toronto, he said.Poloz predicts buyers affected by the stress tests will return to the market in search of less expensive homes, while some will wait until they’ve saved more for a down payment.“All those conditions give you confidence that it’s a matter of adjustment and, after that, a return to normal growth,” he said.On his request Monday for more brainstorming on the mortgage marketplace, Poloz said he’s wondered why so few changes have been introduced in his lifetime.“I think that’s unfortunate and that’s why I gave a speech on it — it’s kind of a call to arms,” Poloz told reporters. “I think there ought to be more innovation.”His speech laid out several possibilities.In its spring budget, the federal government announced it would create shared-equity mortgages as a way to provide interest-free loans to help first-time home buyers add to their down payments. The plan, if implemented, would also encourage a lift in housing supply, Poloz said.The government is expected to provide more details on the proposal later this year.Poloz said the plan would help make the financial system safer because mortgage risks would be shared between the borrower and the lender.In another example, he suggested there should be more work to promote the merits of fixed-rate loans longer than five years because many people are unaware that longer-term options already exist. Only two per cent of all fixed-rate mortgages issued in 2018 had durations longer than five years, he added.For borrowers, longer terms would mean they would have to deal with fewer renewals, reducing the risk that they will face higher interest rates. Policy-makers would also benefit from the increased stability related to fewer renewals.He said there’s some momentum in Canada towards the creation of a private market for mortgage-backed securities. Poloz said it would provide a more-flexible source of longer-term funding for uninsured mortgages, which are becoming more popular.They would have to be designed carefully, he said, because mortgage-backed securities were central to the “sub-prime debacle” ahead of the financial crisis more than a decade ago. read more

The Long Migration Of English FootballThe Long Migration Of English Football

Teams from the South of England are currently dominating the Premier League.London-based Chelsea is in first place, and is a prohibitive favorite to win the title. Southampton — the southernmost team in the league — currently sits second. Both teams won their games last weekend, beating teams from the North and Midlands. West Ham, also based in London, is in fourth.While the North (working class, the Beatles) dominated the league for decades, the South (London, the Rolling Stones) has slowly been gaining ground. This process has been driven by culture, politics and the economy.Using the mammoth football data set compiled by one of this article’s authors (James),1We’ve previously explored scoring trends and home-field advantage. we can quantify, and map, the migration of power in the world’s top soccer league over the past 126 years.England has always had strong regional identities and overt class distinctions. The biggest of these is between North and South. The most obvious differences between these regions are in dialect, culture, politics and economy, but there also exists a North-South football divide. Indeed, the story of the origins of English football is about tensions between working-class Northerners and upper-class Southerners.Here is the geography of English top-tier football league champions:Dots show the location of teams that have won the league championship, with the size representing the number of titles. The line is a 20-year moving average of the latitudes and longitudes of winners of the top tier — the center of gravity.2Before World War I, thanks to successes of teams from the North, the center hovered around the Lancashire-Yorkshire border. After 1930, Southern teams enjoyed more title success and the center began a march southeast through the Peak District, reaching as far as the town of Rugby (that sport’s eponym) following Chelsea’s first win in 1955. With the emergence of powerful Manchester United and later the Liverpool dynasty, the center moved back toward Lancashire. Recently, due to Arsenal’s and Chelsea’s titles, the center has once more moved southeast, and currently resides just outside Burton-upon-Trent (a small town which notably has had four Football League teams in its history). Our colleagues performed a similar calculation with winners of the National Hockey League’s Stanley Cup. That center of gravity is somewhere in Lake Huron.The rules of modern soccer were developed in England in 1863 when the representatives of 11 London clubs and elite private schools (in the South) convened at the Freemasons’ Tavern to establish what would become the Football Association, the game’s governing body. The rules were further modified in 1869 — when handballs were outlawed — leading to more or less the game we know today.Amateur teams, composed of upper class gentlemen from the South of England, enjoyed early success in the first major national competition — the FA Cup — which began in 1871. However, teams from the North and Midlands quickly sprang up out of religious community organizations, schools and trade unions. Football, an accessible, democratic game, caught fire in the North.By the mid-1880s, talented players from these areas and Scotland started to be paid for their services in the increasingly competitive North. This led to several years of bitter arguments between the Northern clubs and the powerful, and Southern-founded, Football Association. Central to this dispute were the original men in blazers — two of the earliest presidents of the FA, Colonel Sir Francis Marindin and Lord Kinnaird, established members of the Southern upper crust, and avowed amateur footballers.3The phrase “men in blazers” has often been used in England to derisively refer to ineffectual and out-of-touch committee members of the FA.Professional working-class Northern teams rapidly overtook their gentlemen Southerner counterparts in ability. The amateurs’ death knell tolled in 1883 when the professional Blackburn Olympic side — featuring weavers, plumbers, dental assistants and iron-foundry workers — beat the epitome of English privilege, the amateur Old Etonians, for the FA Cup title.4Eton College is the most elite private school in England. It is also the traditional alma mater of male members of the Royal Family, including Prince William and Prince Harry. Old Etonians is the collective name for former pupils.Wanting to capitalize on the huge popularity of football among working-class fans, Northern teams formed their own professional league, demanding that the FA accept their will. In 1888, the Football League was founded — six teams from the North and six from the Midlands. It was an immediate success. More teams from the North and Midlands were added and a second division was established in 1892.The early decades of the Football League were dominated by these Northern and Midland teams. Notably, Aston Villa and Sunderland won six and five titles, respectively, before World War I. It wasn’t until 1931 that a Southern team (Arsenal) was crowned league champion. Indeed, until Arsenal’s FA Cup win in 1930, Northern and Midland teams had also won every single FA Cup since 1883, except for London’s Tottenham Hotspur in 1901. Even that team started five Scots, three Northerners, two Welshman and an Irishman.The following chart shows the cumulative top-flight league titles won by individual teams, colored by the team’s region.The Football League became truly national at the start of the 1920-21 season when a third division, composed entirely of teams from the South of England, was created. Over the following decades more Southern teams — Portsmouth, Charlton Athletic, Fulham — gradually rose through successive promotions to find a place in the top tier.While the league creeped south, it retained its strong Northern flavor. The continued domination of the North is best seen by examining the number of championships piled up by teams from this region between 1920 and 1980. Only Arsenal from the South provided anything like competition for Northern teams such as Everton, Liverpool and Manchester United, all of which won multiple titles.The fabric of English society changed dramatically during the 1980s. The force that was Margaret Thatcher and her Conservative government’s right-wing policies led to a boom in the prosperity of the City of London and the South in general, while left-wing trade union power waned.Unemployment in the United Kingdom rose from 5.7 percent in 1979, the year Thatcher took office, to 13 percent in 1983. This aggravated the economic inequality between North and South, and many Northern cities and people suffered financially. These wider economic and political changes were mirrored by shifts in the representation of Northern and Southern soccer teams in England’s top division.Here are the average latitudes of all teams in the top division of English football, by season:Only seven times in history has the average latitude of England’s top-flight soccer teams dipped beneath Birmingham — often called England’s “second city” and considered to be a marker of the middle of the country. The first was in 1982, three years after Thatcher became prime minister. The last was in 1991, one year after Thatcher left Downing Street.Smaller Southern teams — Watford, Wimbledon, Millwall and Oxford United (bankrolled by the business tycoon Robert Maxwell) — made the top tier for the first time during this decade, while others such as Charlton Athletic and Luton Town returned after long absences. The most Southern-skewed season was 1987-88. Although the top four teams all came from the North and Midlands — Manchester United, Liverpool, Nottingham Forest and Everton — 13 of the remaining 17 sides were Southern.Meanwhile, many former great Northern and Midland teams suffered. Bolton Wanderers, Burnley, Preston North End and Wolverhampton Wanderers, all founding members of the Football League, were relegated to the fourth tier during the 1980s.The nature of English soccer changed forever with the formation of the Premier League in 1992, the huge influx of money and the globalization of the game.In the early years of the EPL, there was a brief mini-revival for several historically strong Northern teams, like Middlesbrough, Leicester City, Bolton, Sunderland and Nottingham Forest, that had suffered during the 1980s. Each was promoted back to the top tier during the mid-1990s. Most notably, Blackburn Rovers, bankrolled by local businessman Jack Walker, won the Premier League in 1995.But these teams have all since struggled to consistently retain their places in the EPL, as survival and success are determined more and more by financial muscle. Footprints of the old historical North-South divide are still evident in the composition of teams in England’s top tier but, in order to compete, EPL teams have increasingly become global franchises, taken over by uber-wealthy foreign owners, many of whom have preferred to invest in teams near London, the nation’s capital.English football in the 19th and 20th centuries was fueled by the fanaticism of working-class fans, going to watch their local heroes play for their hometown team. The connection between fans and their clubs was built upon these regional and local ties. In the 21st century, the super-successful, globalized EPL has seen the diminishment of some of these strong regional identities that had mattered so much. read more

Source of money given to 3 suspended Buckeyes remains unclearSource of money given to 3 suspended Buckeyes remains unclear

The numbers aren’t adding up for sophomore Corey Brown, junior running back Jordan Hall and defensive back Travis Howard, who each received $200 at a charity event and will now miss their second consecutive game for Ohio State. The source of the money received by the three players remains unclear, according to documents that were released by the athletic department on Thursday evening. One former member of the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions declined to comment on the specifics of OSU’s recent suspensions, but did say that similar circumstances could lead to a new NCAA investigation.  Brown, Hall and Howard’s name are redacted in the NCAA and university documents that were released, but the documents did say that interviews with current student-athletes revealed that they were invited to attend the charity event by former student-athletes whose names are also redacted. There are also discrepancies among the players regarding who they received money from and why they were receiving it. Two players said believed they were receiving money for working the event while the third player said he was receiving money from a former student athlete, according to the documents. In a letter dated Sept. 1, Doug Archie, OSU’s associate athletic director for compliance, said to Jennifer Henderson, the NCAA’s director of student-athlete reinstatement: “All of the current student-athletes incorrectly believed that their participation in the event had been approved by the OSU compliance office. The OSU compliance office did not approve participation in the… 2011 event, but did approve the same event (in 2007 and 2010). “Please note that there was nothing impermissible about the event.” At least two parties also indicated that one party involved in the money exchange was seen carrying several envelopes during the charity event.  Josephine Potuto, a University of Nebraska professor in constitutional law, served on the NCAA Committee on Infractions from 2006–08 and chaired the committee in 2007 and 2008. Potuto would not comment on any specific facet of OSU’s recent suspensions, but did say that, generally, it was unlikely that the NCAA would admit further evidence against a university after a hearing has been held. OSU held its hearing with the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions on Aug. 12 and is still awaiting the committee’s final ruling. “Any violation committed by an individual student-athlete is also an institutional matter because institutions only deal through people,” Potuto said. “So, another investigation could be opened. Generally, the NCAA and the Committee on Infractions won’t re-open a case after it has held a hearing with the institution. “ Mike Doss, a safety for the Buckeyes from 1999-2002 and member of OSU’s 2002 consensus national championship team, was preparing for his Friday induction into the university’s athletics hall of fame moments before the athletic department announced the continuation of the three players’ suspensions. Doss said he wished the current OSU squad well despite its recent troubles. “I hope they do great,” he said. “I hope they win them all and knock them down and show the country that, no matter who’s the head coach, there’s still great football in Columbus, Ohio.” From from his Twitter account, @Jordan_Hall7, Hall said at approximately 8:30p.m. Friday, “Killin’ me not to be out there ..good luck to all my homies tho.” The Buckeyes continue their season on Saturday with a noon game against Toledo at Ohio Stadium. read more

There’s insider versus outsider: Seekins has worked for the office for 29 years, while Van Nortwick’s self-employed.There’s a difference in goals: Seekins cites greater efficiency, improved customer service and an enhanced website as priorities; Van Nortwick has written a “Bill of Rights” for property taxpayers, making pledges that, to be realized, would require changes in state law and, in one case, an amendment to the state constitution.There’s the what’s-more-disconcerting angle: Seekins didn’t register to vote until April, so the first time she voted was the August primary.

Acer Predator Helios 300 Special Edition ReviewAcer Predator Helios 300 Special Edition Review

For $1,399, the Acer Predator Helios 300 Special Edition offers a strong 8th Gen Core i7 processor and an overclockable Nvidia GTX 1060 GPU, which remain relatively cool under pressure. Despite that, the battery life is shorter than competitors and the speakers sound unusually muted for a gaming laptop. And while it’s nice to see a new color scheme, the Helios 300’s design doesn’t look all that great. The Helios 300 does, however, have a gorgeous 15.6-inch, 144-Hertz panel and a comfortable keyboard, making it a solid mainstream gaming laptop.article continued below See our List of Favorite LaptopsClick on one of our top pick pages below to see which were selected as “Best in Class” by our seasoned tech editors.Best GamingGaming LaptopsFind the right mobile rig for your style of play.Best GamingBest Cheap GamingGaming Under $1000Play your favorite titles, without spending a fortune.Best under $1000#1 Gaming LaptopAlienware 13 (OLED Display)Our favorite gaming laptop right now is beautiful, powerful and portable.See it on DellOr Continue Reading Below… Design Acer gave the Helios 300’s edgy black-and-red counterpart a complete makeover. The Special Edition is dipped in a prestigious, pearl-white paint and touched up with pale-gold accents. It’s a great color scheme, but the plastic chassis makes it look cheap. The lid has two chopstick-looking indents on the left and right side of it surrounding the sharp, metallic Predator logo. The lip of the lid is separated by a silver accent that leads into a brighter shade of white accompanied by randomly patterned shapes engraved into the matte texture. The Special Edition’s prestigious, pearl-white paint with gold accents is a great color scheme, but the plastic chassis makes it look cheap. The hinge of the laptop has a pair of meaty vent grills just below it, except only the left side is actually open, while the right is sealed off with white plastic. The grills make it look like there is a slimmer laptop inside of it, as if the plastic shell is a cage meant to contain the beast. There are a couple more silver accents blending in with the pale gold and soft white base on the interior of the laptop. The keyboard has a basic white backlighting while the keys have a translucent blue font — this sounds good in theory, but the consistency of the translucence is way off. Combine that with the gold WASD keys and you have a color-matching atrocity. Even so, if there was one thing that I had to change (in any Predator), it’d be those ridiculously large bezels. At 5.5 pounds and 15.4 x 10.5 x 1.1 inches, the Helios 300 is about average size compared with its competitors. Asus ROG Strix Hero II (GL504GM) lands in the middle, at 5.1 pounds and 1 inch thick, while the Alienware 15 R4 (7.8 pounds, 1 inches) and the Dell G7 15 (6.3 pounds, 0.9 inches) pack on much more weight. The MSI GV62 8RE came in as the lightest and thickest at 5 pounds and 1.2 inches. Ports The Helios 300 has several useful ports, but I was disappointed to see that there’s no Mini DisplayPort. The left side features a Kensington lock slot, an RJ45 port, one USB 3.1 Type-C port, an HDMI 2.0 port, one USB 3.0 port and an SD Card slot, while the right holds room for the power jack, two USB 2.0 ports and a headphone jack. Display Helios 300’s 15.6-inch, 144-Hertz 1080p panel is impressively bright and shows off a good amount of color, but the bezels could use some work. I stood in the ruins of Cozumel while playing Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and witnessed the crisp moon cast a soft light, revealing the lush greenery surrounding the area. I saw sharp ripples in each leaf, which made the scene even more lifelike. And while most of the following temple was doom and gloom, the copper bells corroding to green and the surrounding blood offered a delightful splash of color despite the circumstances. Helios 300’s 15.6-inch, 1080p panel is impressively bright and shows off a good amount of color, but the bezels could use some work. When the titular character hopped on the shoulders of the rebels in the Robin Hood trailer, his blue scarf and green outfit was bold and prominent, which contrasted well with the yellow-orange fireball that overwhelmed the background. When Robin Hood was training, I could spot the lined stitching in his shirt. And even though the room was relatively dark, the pillars in the shadows were visible. The Helios 300’s panel covers 113 percent of the sRGB color gamut, which puts it ahead of the 111-percent gaming mainstream average. The MSI GV62 (72 percent) and the Dell G7 15 (62 percent) didn’t really impress, but the Strix Hero II (120 percent) and the Alienware 15 R4 (119 percent) did slightly better. MORE: Laptops with the Most Colorful Screens At 312 nits, the Helios 300 has the brightest panel among its competitors and the category average (294 nits). The Strix Hero II (276 nits), the MSI GV62 (240 nits) and the Dell G7 15 (232 nits) couldn’t get past the average, but the Alienware 15’s 311-nit panel almost got out of the Helios 300’s shadow. Keyboard and Touchpad The Helios 300’s keys get a little too bouncy, as if they’re resisting my fingers, but, ultimately, it feels like I’m typing on a cloud due to the soft palm rests. I nailed 73 words per minute on the typing test, which beat my 66 wpm average. When measuring the keys, we saw travel at 1.5 millimeters and a required actuation force of 71 grams, which is well within our comfort parameters (1.5 to 2.0 mm of travel and a minimum of 60 grams of force). Surprisingly, the 4.1 x 3.0-inch touchpad was really stiff, which made it uncomfortable to move the cursor as well as to left and right click. Despite that, it managed to capture Windows 10 gestures, like two-finger scrolling and three-finger tab switching, perfectly fine. Audio The Helios 300’s speakers are pretty disappointing for a gaming laptop, as they were barely loud enough to fill a small office with Blue October’s “Hate Me.” The speakers didn’t go far enough to hit the highs or lows, so it was harder to distinguish the separate tracks. Even during the chorus, the vocals and the electric guitar didn’t sound very significant. MORE: PS4 Games: Our Staff Favorites When playing Shadow of the Tomb Raider, there was a drumbeat that continuously intensified as I climbed a mountain, but the sound wasn’t strong enough to make me feel the weight of the moment. On top of that, I didn’t hear the satisfyingly meaty sound when I pickaxed a guard to death. However, there was a solid echo when Lara was talking over the radio, so at least the voice acting came off a bit stronger. There is an audio app to adjust the sound, but there’s a catch: It’s only accessible if you plug in headphones or a separate set of speakers into the audio jack (ridiculous, I know). The Dolby Audio app has multiple audio presets, including Dynamic, Movie, Music and Game as well as a full equalizer. Gaming, Graphics and VR Despite having only a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU with 6GB of VRAM, the Helios 300 gives you the option to overclock it, which got it to hurtle through Shadow of the Tomb Raider at 35 frames per second (anything above 30 fps is considered playable). The system didn’t stutter even once as I completely desecrated a temple by destroying platforms and several historically important structures. On the Rise of the Tomb Raider benchmark on Very High settings at 1080p, the Helios 300 hit a solid 38 fps, climbing over the 34-fps mainstream gaming average as well as the MSI GV62’s 36 fps (GTX 1060 3GB) and the Dell G7 15’s 35 fps (GTX 1060 Max-Q 6GB). The Strix Hero II (GTX 1060 6GB) matched the Helios at 38 fps, while the Alienware 15 (GTX 1070 8GB) nearly doubled that at 72 fps. The system didn’t stutter even once as I completely desecrated a temple in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. There was a similar hierarchy on the Hitman benchmark (Ultra, 1080p), as the Helios 300 got past the 66-fps category average with 72 fps. The MSI GV62 (51 fps) and the Dell G7 15 (63 fps) traded blows, while the Strix Hero II matched with the Helios again, at 72 fps, and the Alienware 15 dominated each machine, at 92 fps. On the Grand Theft Auto benchmark (Very High, 1080p), the Helios 300 averaged 51 fps, which beat the 45-fps category average, but the Strix Hero II claimed victory at 52 fps. The MSI GV62 (48 fps) and the Dell G7 15 (45 fps) continued to go back and forth, while the Alienware 15 (74 fps) remained at the top. The Helios 300 scored a solid 7.9 on the SteamVR Performance test, defeating the 6.1 category average as well as the Strix Hero II (7.4), the MSI GV62 (7.3) and the Dell G7 15 (6.3). The Alienware 15, however, broke a perfect 11. Performance Armed with a 2.2-GHz Intel Core i7-8750H processor, 16GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD, the Helios 300 easily juggled 40 Google Chrome tabs, a 1080p video and Spotify all while Shadow of the Tomb Raider ran in the background. On the Geekbench 4.1 overall performance test, the Helios 300 nailed 20,595, narrowly beating the 20,283 mainstream category average. The Alienware 15’s Core i7-8750H (17,109) and the MSI GV62’s Core i5-8300H (14,486) underperformed, while the Strix Hero II’s Core i7-8750H (21,870) and the Dell G7 15’s Core i7-8750H (20,812) surpassed the Helios. Keeping up with the pace, the Helios 300 matched 65,000 names and addresses on our Excel test in 45 seconds, overtaking the 0:49 category average. While the Helios knocked out the Alienware 15 (0:50) and the MSI GV62 (0:59), the Strix Hero II (0:35) and the Dell G7 15 (0:41) were ultimately faster. On the HandBrake benchmark, the Helios 300 transcoded a 4K video to 1080p in 10 minutes and 30 seconds, practically a whole minute faster than the 11:29 category average. The Strix Hero II (9:36), the Alienware 15 (10:28) and the Dell G7 15 (10:40) all ran a tight race past the average. The MSI GV62 was the only one that didn’t make it, at 13:09. MORE: The Best Gaming Laptops The Helios 300 copied 4.97GB of data in 14 seconds, for 364 megabytes per second, nearly beating the 287 MBps category average by a whole 100 MBps. The Strix Hero II was the only one that actually kept up, at 462 MBps, while the Alienware 15 (221 MBps), the MSI GV62 (124 MBps) and the Dell G7 15 (102 MBps) showed a severe slowdown. Battery Life While gaming laptops generally don’t last very long, the Helios 300 could have done better. After continuously surfing the web over Wi-Fi at 150 nits of brightness, the battery died after 3 hours, which is over an hour under the 4:06 mainstream gaming average. The MSI GV62 (2:05) didn’t do very well either, but the Strix Hero II (4:56), Alienware 15 (5:15) and the Dell G7 15 (5:39) well exceeded the average. Webcam Images taken on the Helios 300’s webcam were a little blown out by the ceiling lights in our office, but the blue and gray colors in my shirt didn’t come off too bad. However, with this much grain in the images, the hair on my head looked like a fuzzy blob. You’ll probably want to use an external webcam, if you want to stream at all. Heat Due its plastic chassis, the Helios 300 dispersed heat relatively well. After playing Shadow of the Tomb Raider for 15 minutes, the underside measured 98 degrees Fahrenheit, which isn’t far from our 95-degree comfort threshold. The center of the keyboard did hit 115 degrees, but it didn’t feel hot — just warm. And the touchpad hit only 84 degrees. The hottest the system got was 131 degrees, but that was near the bottom vent where the components were exposed. It’s no surprise we got a cooler result when we ran the less-taxing version of our heat test. After streaming a 15-minute HD video, the underside, the center of the keyboard and the touchpad hit 91, 89 and 80 degrees, respectively. Software and Warranty The most useful software that Acer includes is the PredatorSense, which also gets the Special Edition color treatment. PredatorSense monitors CPU and GPU usage and temperatures as well as fan speed and GPU core clock settings. Those features are important, but that’s about all the app has. Acer also includes its own Care Center, which lets you perform checkups and tune-ups on the hard drive, battery and internet as well as create a recovery drive. Acer’s Quick Access settings control power-on USB charging, the blue light filter and a separate fan-speed option called CoolBoost. Let’s not forget Acer’s own Power Button app, which gives you options to turn off the display, sleep, hibernate or shut down the system. The usual Windows 10 bloatware also makes an appearance with apps like Candy Crush Soda Saga, Candy Crush Saga (the better one) and Hidden City: Hidden Object Adventure. The Predator Helios 300 Special Edition comes with a two-year limited warranty. See how Acer performed on our Tech Support Showdown, Best and Worst Brands listing and Best and Worst Gaming Brand ranking. Configurations The Helios 300 Special Edition I tested costs $1,399 and comes with a 2.2-GHz Intel Core i7-8750H processor, 16GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU with 6GB of VRAM. The Special Edition has only one configuration, but the Helios 300 has a counterpart (the standard Helios 300) that comes in black and red, which costs $1,238 and drops down to 8GB of RAM and a 1TB 5,400rpm HDD. Bottom Line The Acer Predator Helios 300 Special Edition performed well on our tests, showing off its performance and graphics power at relatively cool temperatures, no less. The keyboard is very comfortable to type on, and I was particularly impressed with the Helios 300’s smooth 1080p panel. However, it does trip up on battery life and sticks you with a discount-looking chassis and a muted pair of speakers. If you can shell out the money, the Asus ROG Strix Hero II (GL504GM) ($1,655) offers a classy aluminum chassis, faster raw performance, a more colorful display and barely-there bezels. But overall, the Helios 300 is a solid gaming laptop that will give you plenty of power at a decent price.

With a growing number of imaging studies between the two business segments, Network Radiology relies on Exa PACS server-side rendering and the solution’s diagnostic-quality zero footprint universal viewer for fast access to imaging studies from virtually any location, workstation or modality.“From a physician reading perspective, Exa helps me read faster than I did with my old system because I no longer have to wait for a case to load. That’s a significant improvement,” said Michael Paley, M.D., chief radiologist and founder/owner of Network Radiology. “For teleradiology, the worklist is infinitely customizable and the viewer is fully functional with a comprehensive set of image manipulation and measurement tools.”For teleradiology, each of Paley’s clients are configured in the Exa system so that all studies are sent to Network Radiology’s Exa PACS (picture archiving and communication system) and an HL-7 interface automatically delivers the completed radiology reports to the clients’ own PACS. It is common in teleradiology for a sending facility to transmit a single exam that has multiple procedure codes within. This presents a problem in that radiologist reporting will typically show only one billable exam, since there usually is not any RIS (radiology information system) interface for teleradiology clients. But with Exa’s Contract Fee Management feature, Network Radiology tracks volume and studies by CPT code and site to capture all billable services, including comprehensive imaging exams that may have multiple billing codes. Thanks to Exa’s Universal Viewer, radiologists can read from nearly any workstation, which further enhances clinical efficiency report turnaround times. With the web-based system, there is no downloading of software, images or patient data, further simplifying the setup of a new radiologist or workstation.For the imaging center, Exa’s Referring Physician and Patient Portals were a key factor in Paley’s decision to select Konica Minolta’s Exa PACS/RIS. “Our referring physicians love the ability to log in and look at their studies and reports in real time,” said Paley. “The portal is a great marketing tool for us; once our referrers use it, it helps solidify our relationship with them.”Paley has also seen a big improvement in productivity, not just for radiology reading but also for the office staff. Reports are no longer manually faxed since the system automatically faxes and/or emails completed reports. Patient data is seamlessly transferred from scheduling to the worklist, reducing manual data-entry errors and enhancing technologists’ efficiency.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | Radiology Business | August 02, 2019 VIDEO: Key Topics for Radiology Administrators at AHRA 2019 Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) President … read more News | Radiology Business | August 01, 2019 Philips Completes Acquisition of Carestream Health’s HCIS Business … read more 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.
