The Best Scenario for Using Space Lights: An Introduction

first_imgA Light SolutionFilmmakers quickly learned the attraction of shooting on a sound stage, especially one that mimics the perfect kind of daylight. This is most often the result of a light modifier called the “space light” — groups of lights used to illuminate a large area of space with an even level. The space light, sometimes called a barrel light, is a cylindrical tube of diffusion that hangs down from or around the light fixture. They’re hung from a grid in rows, often six feet from the background and six to eight feet from each other, giving an even level of top and side illumination over a wide area. This is invaluable when shooting a scene that takes place over a distance — like a walk-and-talk or fight scene.The Tungsten 2K is the most common light of this type because they’re cheap and bright. Brightness is important because the Space Light modifier eats up a lot of light. You need to start with a bright source to end up with a realistic exposure on the ground.Daylight-balanced LED space lights are far easier to maintain than tungsten, due to lack of heat or the need to regularly change the bulbs. But, most struggle to achieve the brightness of tungsten.Space Lights Are Only Part of the SolutionImage via FERNANDO MACIAS ROMOIt’s very rare that a scene will be exclusively lit with space lights. They make for great back and fill lights, but lack the punch to be a good key light. It’s for this reason that most gaffers and DPs use space lights on a stage, but will add one or more key lights to make the subject “pop,” creating contrast. This is often a large silk, such as a 10×10, with a bright light like a ARRI M18 punching through it (for daylight balanced scenes).If the talent is covering a wide area, they might set up multiple, smaller key lights — like the SkyPanel S60 — from the top or side so they’re illuminated at the different places, or “marks,” they stop at.Other Uses for Space LightsSpace lights are also an excellent way to illuminate a green screen or a white cyc. Studios with facilities will often have a row of space lights installed above the back wall, as well as a “teaser,” or long piece of black fabric, that can mute the spill on the talent.Space lights aren’t a light modifier you can use to shape a single light. They work best (and are most commonly used) in a large array as part of a studio, but it’s great to know that if you want to light a large area with an even exposure and capture that pre-magic-hour exterior ambiance, they’re the perfect tool for the job.Top image by Syda Productions.Looking for more on lighting?

It softly illuminates everything without being too bright. In a perfect world, it would always be the right weather and right time of day.Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. Often, the sun is too bright, or changes too much over the duration of the scene. Sometimes it rains, and the sun is only perfect for brief moments of time.last_img read more

Bihar police drive to stop mob violence

first_imgThe Bihar police have launched a massive drive on social media and are conducting awareness programmes appealing to people to stay away from mob violence which has taken eight lives in the past two-weeks, mostly in Patna district. Over two dozen cases have reportedly been triggered by rumours of child lifting in past one month.On Saturday, a man was beaten to death by a violent mob in Mohammadpur village under the Naubatpur police station in Patna district. The lynching took place on rumour that the man was a child lifter. “As many as 43 people have been named and 150 are unidentified in the FIR…we have arrested 23 of those involved in the incident,” the officer-in-charge of the Naubatpur police station, Samrat Deepak Kumar, said. He added that the local police have been appealing to people, while making announcement on loudspeakers, not to believe in such rumours. Earlier, on August 3, two such incidents of mob violence took place in Rupaspur and Dhanarua villages.Alarmed with the rising trends of mob violence over child-lifting rumours, the police headquarters has instructed all district police superintendents to launch a drive against such incidents and make people aware through social media and public interaction not to believe rumours. ‘Don’t believe rumours’ Patna Senior Superintended of Police Garima Mallik held public meetings in different locations in the capital and appealed to the people not to fall prey to such rumours.

India have dominated Australia ever since the start of Border-Gavaskar Trophy

first_imgVirat Kohli’s men have a chance to create history in Sydney. No Indian team has ever won a Test series against Australia in Australia but that may change after the final Test of the ongoing four-match series at the Sydney Cricket Ground.Having retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, Kohli’s Team India are heading into the much-anticipated Test with an unassailable 2-1 lead, which they had sealed after thrashing Australia by 137 runs in Melbourne – their first-ever Boxing Day Test win Down Under.Despite the absence of two of their most prolific run-scorers – Steve Smith and David Warner, the duo that had scored nearly 40% of the team’s total during India’s visit to Australia in 2014 – credit must be given to Kohli’s men if they go on to win the ongoing series, considering the history attached to the encounters between the two teams.India-Australia encounters have always been one of the most-anticipated in world cricket as the Asian giants were among the few teams who could challenge the Australian domination over the last two decades.Better numbers for India since the first Border-Gavaskar series in 1996India and Australia have played 97 Tests between them since 1947 and, as expected, the Australians have dominated the numbers with 42 wins and 26 draws. With a tied Test also part of the history, India have managed 28 wins over the years.However, ever since the start of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, the numbers have favoured India.Before and since #BorderGavaskarTrophyIndia…Before 50 Tests, won 8, lost 24, Tie 1, Drawn 17 (%win 16.00)Since 47 Tests, won 20, lost 18, Drawn 9 (%win 42.55)#AusvInd#AusvsIndadvertisement Mohandas Menon (@mohanstatsman) January 2, 2019The first ever Test series in honour of the two greats was played in 1996 in India and the then hosts won the only Test under Sachin Tendulkar’s captaincy in Delhi. Mohammad Azharuddin made sure the trophy remained with the hosts when Australia came touring for a three-Test series in 1997-98.India were blanked 3-0 when the Border-Gavaskar series was first played in Australia – in 1999-00.Since the Border-Gavaskar Trophy came into existence, India and Australia have played 14 Test series, out of which eight were played in the Asian country.Ponting only captain to win Border-Gavaskar series away from home Australia defeated India 2-1 in 2004-05 to win their first-ever Border Gavaskar Trophy away from home (Reuters Photo)Australia, under Ricky Ponting and Adam Gilchrist, created history in 2004-05 as they became the first team to win the Border-Gavaskar series away from home.Australia could have achieved the feat as early as during their trip in 2000-01 as the then world champions were leading a three-match series 1-0 and were cruising towards a 2-0 result at Eden Gardens before VVS Laxman played one of the iconic innings in the history of Indian cricket.Nonetheless, in 2004-05, Australia were a class apart as they conquered one of the toughest challenges in world cricket – beat India in India and ended a 34-year-long drought for a series win in the Asian nation.It remains to be seen if Virat Kohli can help India conquer their final frontier.

The Perfect Stout Glass from Spiegelau

first_img Editors’ Recommendations It’s just not fair — every grape varietal and wine style under the sun has its own specific glass, but beer –no matter what the style– typically just gets sloshed unceremoniously into a standard pint glass. It’s a shame, really, because the right glass can have amazing effects on the flavor of a beer. Specific shapes can deliver the brew to different parts of your palate and accentuate flavors and aromas, but for some reason, specialized glassware for beer isn’t nearly as common (or diverse) as it is for wine. Thankfully, however, that’s slowly beginning to change.Thanks largely to the craft beer revolution of the past decade, people are approaching beer in a different way, and glassmakers like Spiegelau are starting to experiment with new shapes, sizes, and configurations of drinkware for different varieties of beer. About a year ago, the company released a glass designed specifically for American “hop-forward” IPAs, and now –after months and months of careful testing– it’s back with a similar vessel for stouts.Designed through a painstaking 9-month collaboration between Left Hand Brewing of Longmont, Colorado, and Rogue Ales of Newport, Oregon; the glass is crafted to accentuate the roasty malts, creamy mouthfeel, and chocolately, coffee-like notes in stouts.The amount of research that went into the glass is absolutely mind-boggling. Spiegelau doesn’t mess around. Following the success of the IPA glass (which sold much better than expected), Spiegelau’s approached Eric Wallace, co-founder of Left Hand, and Brett Joyce, president of Rogue — two breweries that are defined by their multi-award-winning stouts.After an initial group workshop in which the brewing teams from both Left Hand and Rogue tasted a huge range of stouts in 12 different existing Spiegelau glasses, the design team put together a matrix to record each group’s impressions of what worked and what didn’t. Armed with a this data, the Spiegelau delegation went back to Germany and made some prototypes, and then returned for a second round of testing.Eventually the teams narrowed the range of glasses down to six different prototypes, and during the final round of independent taste tests, both breweries chose the same glass: Prototype C. With a sigh of relief, Spiegelau fired up a lake of molten glass, and put the world’s first stout-specific glass into production. We haven’t had a chance to try it for ourselves just yet, but judging by how impressed we were with the IPA glass, we’re fairly certain this glass will be aweseome.You can pick up a pair of the glasses for about 25 bucks here.

LeBron And Harden Are The NBAs Best Quarterbacks

PLAYERNUMBERPERCENTAGE OF ALL PASSES PASSES THAT TRAVEL MORE THAN 30 FEET The 2016-17 season’s top 10 NBA quarterbacks James Harden94425.0% Russell Westbrook3059.9 John Wall46414.6 Eric Bledsoe38511.9 It was the fourth quarter of a February game against Oklahoma City when LeBron James caught Derrick Williams napping. The Cavaliers were down 101-99, James had the ball, and he and Cavs big man Tristan Thompson had just run a pick and roll at the top of the key. Williams, signed that morning to a 10-day contract, was in the far-right corner, resting with his hands on his knees. James dribbled left and fired a pass to Williams, 40 feet away. Williams dropped the ball, it careened out of bounds and the Thunder gained possession.“I learned quick: He can find you just about anywhere — it doesn’t matter how far away you’re standing,” Williams said.Video Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.James, in other words, is one heck of a passer. He can get the ball to teammates, regardless of how far apart they are or how impossible the passing angle may appear. According to a query run by SportVU data analyst Brittni Donaldson at FiveThirtyEight’s request, a whopping 20 percent of James’s passes have traveled more than 30 feet this season; that’s the second-highest share in the league. The league-wide average1Among players who’ve thrown at least 100 passes overall this season. is 6 percent. His passes that go that far travel north of 30 mph, according to SportVU.On Sunday night, James will square off against the only person ahead of him on that list: Houston guard and MVP front-runner James Harden, who tosses 25 percent of his passes more than 30 feet, according to the data.2The SportVU and other numbers in this article are accurate as of March 8. As of Wednesday, Harden this season had thrown 944 passes that had traveled more than 30 feet; James had 586. To put those numbers into context, consider that the next-closest player, Washington’s John Wall, had only 464. Jrue Holiday30912.2 Through March 8.

McConnell3038.3 That anticipation and unusual ability to find teammates, regardless of where they’re standing or how heavily they’re covered, leaves defensive players entrenched in a mental game of minesweeper. A step in any direction, or even just standing still, could result in a layup, dunk or open 3-point attempt at any moment. Because of Harden’s and James’s ability to thread the needle — at high speeds and from just about anywhere — no defense is ever truly safe.Video Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Nearly everything that happens for the two teams’ offenses happens because of the effect that James and Harden have on the floor. And even though their scoring gets most of the attention, the two players are zipping passes at incredible speeds across incredible distances. Their teams are benefiting. Cleveland is beating opponents by about 8 points per 100 plays with James on the court — and getting beaten by about 7 points per 100 plays with him sidelined, according to And though Houston has maintained a healthy scoring margin this season when Harden rests, it’s notable that the high-scoring club — which thrives on its 3-point shooting and is one of the 10 best offenses in NBA history in terms of efficiency — becomes mortal without him as the floor general. If you want an insight into how their offenses work, keep an eye on James’s and Harden’s passes.This isn’t to say that Harden and James are without flaws or that their long-passing risks always pay off. Quite the opposite. Both are in the midst of career highs in turnovers. This week, Harden broke his own single-season NBA record for miscues, while James has never turned it over this much, measured by both his turnovers per game and the percentage of his plays that ended with a turnover.“LeBron’s a great passer and the greatest player I ever played with,” said ex-NBA forward Shane Battier, who won two titles as James’s teammate in Miami. “But he had a propensity for hitting me below the knees with a lot of his passes. And I had to tell him: ‘Look, I know you love your triple-doubles. If you want to get more, you’ve gotta start hitting me in the chest with these. Get me the ball in a good spot, and I’ll help you get there. It became a running joke with coach [Erik Spoelstra], where he’d stop the film and say, ‘C’mon LeBron; help Shane out!’”But more often than not, the rewards with James and Harden have been great. They’re totally different players: James is one of the most physically imposing ballhandlers3Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo, in this Sports Illustrated profile, said he’s felt unusually sore and achy after playing the four-time MVP. in league history, while Harden thrives on his craftiness and unusual ability to stop on a dime. Yet the fear that each inspires when hurtling toward the basket — whether it’s via a one-on-one isolation4James and Harden each kick the ball out to spot-up shooters in one-on-one scenarios 1.2 times per game, the highest rate in the league, according to Synergy Sports Technology. or a pick-and-roll — is what makes James and Harden arguably the sport’s two most lethal passers, especially in light of who their teammates are.Both players operate in perhaps the NBA’s most spacious offenses and boast plenty of sharpshooting teammates. Of the 20 players who’ve drained the most threes this season, six play for either Cleveland or Houston. Knowing that those players surround James or Harden at the same time that a roll man like Thompson or Clint Capela dives toward the basket stops defensive players in their tracks for a split second as they come to the realization that they’re in a Catch-22.Video Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Video Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.“Teams have really gotta pick their poison as far as what they want to do when they play us,” said Rockets guard Eric Gordon, who’s enjoying a career resurgence with Harden and coach Mike D’Antoni. “Do they want to have everybody shooting threes? Because that’s what happens if you decide you want to take away [Harden’s] scoring. Or do you want to stay with us at the 3-point line? Because if you do that, I like his chances of finding a way to score.”That spacing, and the fact that defenses can’t possibly cover that much ground on every play, is part of why James is averaging a career-best 8.8 assists per outing. If he ends the season there, it would be a single-season assist record for a non-guard. And in his first season as a point guard, Harden is logging 11.2 dimes a night, a 49 percent bump from what had been a career-high 7.5 assists per game last season. Within the next week or so, the two players will rank No. 1 and 2 in the list of players who have assisted the most 3-point shots in a single season.5With 303 3-point assists, Harden has broken Steve Nash’s 2004-05 single-season record of 284, according to ESPN Stats & Information Group. James, with 274, should surpass Nash soon.“Making sure I find guys and making the right pass is all I think about each game,” said Harden, who sprays the ball to spot-up shooters out of pick-and-roll plays an NBA-high seven times a game, according to Synergy. “As long as they get to their spots and are ready to shoot, I’ll find them.”Video Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Both the Cavs and the Rockets acquired new players around the trade deadline, and James knows an adjustment period follows.“Not just [adjusting to passes from] me, but everyone,” James told me during All-Star Weekend in New Orleans. “I try to study my teammates and how they like the ball. Some guys like it with the seam; some guys like it seamless, because it puts different rotation on the ball. It all depends on how they like it before they shoot. So I study guys, and I just try to be one step ahead so that when [new players] get on the team, I’m already on Phase Two.”Getting past Phase One with James takes a bit of time for newcomers, though. After a Cleveland loss to Boston last week, 16-year veteran Richard Jefferson pulled aside the 25-year-old Williams in the locker room to give him some advice: Don’t dribble a whole lot after LeBron finds you.Video Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.“You’re dancing too much,” he told Williams, who that night had been called for a charge after James had found him wide open in the corner. “He’ll get you the ball in perfect spots. All you’ve gotta do is shoot. Or pump fake, then shoot. But you don’t have to dance.”6Williams’s tracking data shows that he’s dribbling slightly more and holding the ball slightly longer in Cleveland than he did with Miami earlier in the season.Kyle Korver, who joined the Cavs from Atlanta via trade, said he’s made two adjustments for playing with James. First, because of how much steam James puts on his assists, Korver has gotten more proactive about “attacking” James’s passes,7Korver told me that his Cavs teammate James Jones, who’s made six straight trips to the NBA Finals with LeBron, gave him this advice upon joining the club. as opposed to letting them get into his body. “If you let the thing come to you, it catches you on the back of your heels almost,” said Korver, who has shot 51 percent from 3-point range off James’s passes thus far, compared with an overall 3-point mark of 41 percent in Atlanta this season before the trade.8Korver shot just 38 percent (14-of-37) off James’s passes in January but rebounded nicely in February to shoot 68 percent (19-of-28) in February.The second adjustment is often standing and doing nothing.In Atlanta, without a singular star, Korver often had to sprint around several screens to get open shots. But with James, and the dilemma his passing ability causes opposing defenses, simply standing at the perimeter is enough.“If I do that,” Korver said of staying put and waiting on the ball, “then I’ve probably done my job.” read more

Columbus Crew unveils new uniforms preps for opener

Columbus Crew midfielder Federico Higuain (10) and defender Michael Parkhurst (4) model the teams new uniforms March 4 at Bar Louie in Columbus.Credit: Andrew Todd-Smith / Lantern photographerThe Columbus Crew is getting a new look.Columbus’ MLS franchise is set to begin its 2014 regular season Saturday, and the team enters its campaign with a new Adidas primary uniform, which was unveiled Tuesday at Bar Louie in the Arena District during a special event for Crew season ticket holders.The new Crew kit differs from its predecessor by featuring a textured monochromatic pattern of broad diamond shapes on the jersey, and the collar has been scrapped for the simpler look a crew neck provides.President and general manager Mark McCullers welcomed a crowd of several hundred fans dressed in Crew black-and-gold before the jersey was officially unveiled.The event gave the team brass an opportunity to greet and thank fans.“I’m so glad that you guys are with us on this journey, this new era,” McCullers said, then ceding the microphone to first-year coach and sporting director Gregg Berhalter.Berhalter’s Nov. 6 hiring concluded the Crew’s search for former coach Robert Warzycha’s permanent replacement. Warzycha was released from his contract Sept. 2, and then-technical director Brian Bliss served as interim head coach for the final eight games of the season.“We’re excited about the season, we’re excited to have you guys behind us, we’re excited to unveil the jersey and we look forward to this Saturday’s game,” Berhalter said.McCullers and Berhalter then removed a large poster emblazoned with the team logo to expose an oversize mounted replica of the new Adidas jersey.At the same moment, Crew players overlooking the crowd from a second-floor balcony at the venue all removed their warmups to reveal their new jerseys, a surprise move that elicited loud cheers from those in attendance.“I love it. I mean, I think it’s lighter than last year’s jersey. No collar, I like it, it’s much cleaner,” midfielder Wil Trapp said. “I think it’s gonna come in handy when we get into the summer months and it’s humid. That takes a huge toll on your body, honestly. You want something that’s breathable and you can move around in.”Trapp said the material was similar to that of the team’s training jerseys but that the players have yet to wear-test the new kit on the field.In keeping with soccer tradition and MLS rules that dictate the goalkeeper’s jersey be of a different color than his teammates’, Columbus native and Ohio State product Matt Lampson’s jersey featured a turquoise-and-pink color scheme that he said is “very 80s retro.”Despite the different appearance of his uniform, Lampson corroborated Trapp’s testimonial of the fabric by saying it felt “comfortable, light (and) breezy.”“I’ve only seen this one and a green one that we have as well and I like them both,” Lampson said. “They’re very different, very progressive, compared to the typical ones we’ve had the past few seasons … I can’t wait to rep them on the field.”Former player and member of the 2008 MLS Cup-winning Columbus squad, Crew brand ambassador Frankie Hejduk was also on hand for the event.Functioning as an impromptu master-of-ceremonies after the unveiling, he invited fans up to the platform to start supporter chants for the crowd’s enjoyment.Hejduk also talked about the buzz surrounding the team leading into the regular season.“They dismantled (reigning MLS Cup Champions Sporting) KC like it was nothing, man,” Hejduk said of the team’s last outing, a 4-1 win that capped off an unbeaten five-game preseason slate. “You saw that counterattack going down. So they have some high expectations of this season and we’re gonna get behind them. Win or lose (or) draw, you know this: we bleed black and gold.”The Crew is scheduled to take the field against D.C. United in Washington, D.C., Saturday at 7 p.m. read more

After bypoll drubbing BJP not too upbeat on prospects

first_imgThe civic polls, including in Kolkata, will be followed by elections to 92 other civic bodies across the state on April 25. The party said it will be concentrating more on the 2016 Assembly polls.Trinamool Congress had retained both Bongaon Lok Sabha and Krishnaganj Assembly seats with huge margins in the by-polls held in the month of February. Though the BJP is banking on the excuse that the civic polls will be a state show (with a fact that it will organized by the State Election Commission and managed by local administration), ground realties suggest that the saffron party’s base in the state is in shambles, with its support base declining.Speaking to the Millennium Post, BJP national secretary and in charge of West Bengal, Siddharth Nath Singh said: “The civic election will be highly rigged as it is controlled by the state administration.

Over 500 Critically Endangered Vultures Die From Eating Elephants Poisoned By Poachers

In 2003, over 500 birds, including vultures, also died in Namibia after eating the carcasses of elephants that were poisoned. Evidently, creatures such as vultures are rather problematic for poachers because they tend to give away the locations of poachers’ activities when they flock to the site of the carcass. Unfortunately, this leaves the creatures quite vulnerable to poisoning.Because of the incident, authorities are now working to decontaminate the area from the poison to avoid further deaths. They are also encouraging members of the public to report any suspicious activity that may be suggestive of environmental poisoning.White-Backed VulturesOf the vulture deaths, white-backed vultures suffered the most casualties. Also called Old World vultures, these creatures are the most common large vultures in Africa. White-backed vultures feed on the carcasses of large dead animals, and they tend to gorge themselves so much on food that they can no longer fly. When this happens, they rest with their wings spread and backs facing the sun.Some of the main threats to white-backed vultures are loss of habitat due to agriculture, illegal capture for trade, hunting for traditional medicines, drowning in farm reservoirs, electrocution from electricity pylons, and poisoning. TAG Vultures, Critically Endangered Species, Poaching Ads by Amazon ENDS IN Close In Botswana, over 500 vultures considered critically endangered were found dead in one of the country’s protected wildlife management areas (WMA). The creatures evidently died after consuming the carcasses of three elephants believed to be poisoned by poachers.Mass Animal DeathOver 500 vultures and two tawny eagles are dead after consuming three dead elephants believed to have been poisoned by poachers. In a statement, the government said that incident happened in a protected WMA and denounced the poisoning that led to these deaths, calling it “dangerous and harmful to the environment.”In total, 537 vultures died, including 468 white-backed vultures, 10 cape vultures, 14 lappet-faced vultures, 17 white-headed vultures, and 28 hooded vultures. Unfortunately, all of the mentioned species are considered critically endangered in the International Union For Conservation of Nature Red List.

Study Suggests Mammograms Another Way to Screen for Heart Disease

This could potentially allow for earlier intervention.Data from this study show for the first time a link between the amount of calcium in the arteries of the breast — readily visible on digital mammography — and the level of calcium buildup in the coronary arteries. Coronary arterial calcification, or CAC, is considered a very early sign of cardiovascular disease. Importantly, the presence of breast arterial calcification also appears to be an equivalent or stronger risk factor for CAC than other well-established cardiovascular risk factors such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes. Earlier research had shown a link between breast arterial calcification and atherosclerotic disease — even heart attack, stroke and other cardiovascular disease events. But researchers said these data provide a more direct relationship between the extent of calcified plaque in the mammary and coronary arteries, as well as a comparison to standard risk evaluation.”Many women, especially young women, don’t know the health of their coronary arteries. Based on our data, if a mammogram shows breast arterial calcifications it can be a red flag — an ‘aha’ moment — that there is a strong possibility she also has plaque in her coronary arteries,” said Harvey Hecht, M.D., professor at the Icahn School of Medicine and director of cardiovascular imaging at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s hospital, and lead author of the study.All told, 70 percent of the women who had evidence of breast arterial calcification on their mammogram were also found to have CAC as shown on a non-contrast computed tomography (CT) scan of the chest. For women under 60 years of age with CAC, half also had breast arterial calcification — an important finding as very few would be thinking about or considered for early signs of heart disease. There were even fewer false positives among younger patients; researchers said that if a younger woman had breast arterial calcification, there was an 83 percent chance she also had CAC.Notably, breast arterial calcification also appeared to be as strong a predictor for cardiovascular risk as standard risk scores such as the Framingham Risk Score, which underestimates women’s risk, and the 2013 Cholesterol Guidelines Pooled Cohort Equations, which tends to overestimate risk, Hecht said. When researchers added 33 asymptomatic women with established CAD, breast arterial calcification was more powerful than both risk assessment formulas, which suggests the presence of subclinical atherosclerosis may be a more important indicator of heart disease than other risk factors.”This information is available on every mammogram, with no additional cost or radiation exposure, and our research suggests breast arterial calcification is as good as the standard risk factor-based estimate for predicting risk,” Hecht said. “Using this information would allow at-risk women to be referred for standard CAC scoring and to be able to start focusing on prevention — perhaps even taking a statin when it can make the most difference.”Multivariate analysis showed that early signs of a buildup of plaque in the coronary arteries were most strongly related to breast arterial calcification. While CAC was about two times as likely with advancing age or high blood pressure, it was three times more likely with breast arterial calcification.”The message is if a woman is getting a mammogram, look for breast arterial calcification. It’s a freebie and provides critical information that could be lifesaving for some women,” Hecht said, adding he hopes these findings will prompt clinicians, who rarely report breast arterial calcification, to routinely report not just the presence or absence of breast arterial calcifications but also to estimate and note the amount.”The more breast arterial calcification a women has, the more likely she is to have calcium in her heart’s arteries as well. If all it requires is to take a closer look at the images, how can we ignore it?,” he said.A total of 292 women who had digital mammography and non-contrast CT scans within one year were included in the study. Of these, 124, or 42.5 percent, were found to have evidence of breast arterial calcification. Mammograms were reviewed by a second radiologist who was blinded to the CAC results. Women with breast arterial calcification were more likely to be older, have high blood pressure and chronic kidney disease, and less likely smokers. Women with established cardiovascular diseases were excluded. Breast arterial calcification was evaluated on a scale from zero to 12 by increasing severity, and CAC was measured on the CT using a validated 0-12 severity score. The overall accuracy of breast arterial calcification for the presence of CAC was 70 percent, and 63 percent of those with CAC also had breast arterial calcification.To date, there is no consensus on using CAC as a screening test, though a very large outcome study of 39,000 subjects is underway in the Netherlands. Mammography, however, is widely used and accepted and, as Hecht said, may provide an opportunity to risk-stratify asymptomatic women by breast arterial calcification who might have calcium in the coronary arteries and ordinarily would not have been readily considered for cardiovascular screening.Heart disease is the leading cause of death among women, yet breast cancer is often the most feared.Roughly 37 million mammograms are performed annually in the United States. Mammography is recommended annually for women over 40 years of age by the American Cancer Society and every other year for women 50-75 years old and women at high risk for breast cancer by the U.S. Preventive Service Task Force. Digital mammography is more sensitive to the presence of calcifications and is now available in 96 percent of mammography units in the United States.Another intriguing point that deserves additional study, according to the researchers, is that the nature of the atherosclerosis is different in breast arterial calcification and CAC, making it unclear why one should be related to the other.Hecht stresses that these findings warrant further evaluation and validation in larger studies. Future prospective trials are needed to see what the prognostic significance of breast arterial calcification might be. Because the study involved women who received both mammography and CT scan for clinical indications, these women may have been more likely than the average woman to have coexisting conditions, although Hecht said these were unrelated to heart disease.This study is being published simultaneously online in JACC: Cardiovascular Imaging.In an accompanying editorial in JACC: Cardiovascular Imaging, Khurram Nasir, M.D., MPH, and John McEvoy, from the Center for Healthcare Advancement and Outcomes at Baptist Health South Florida, said that the report provides impetus to document breast arterial calcification in mammography reports, to improve education of primary care and radiology providers on the link with heart disease, and other actions to establish best practices for incorporating this research into care.”Even by the conservative estimate of 10 percent, approximately 4 million women nationwide undergoing screening mammography will exhibit breast arterial calcification, with 2 to 3 million of them likely to have signs of premature coronary atherosclerotic disease,” the authors said. “Whether the best use of breast arterial calcification is to trigger additional testing or to directly inform preventive treatment decisions, either by flagging high-risk women to their providers or by reclassifying traditional (heart disease) risk estimates, is worth further discussion.”The study was funded, in part, by the Flight Attendants Medical Research Institute.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Siemens Go.Top CT scanner at SCCT19Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:05Loaded: 15.14%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:05 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

To avoid confusion, they said, the company “decided to add the PZ part.” They also argued that the company would not sell toys in Costa Rica.However, Miranda pointed out that Costa Rican law prohibits trademark theft irrespective of a company’s products.Miranda’s firm also filed similar complaints against three other companies that allegedly use the Lego brand name. Rulings in those cases are expected in coming days.The Lego brand was registered in Costa Rica in 1970, and the only official distributor of the popular toy products is Universal.
