Edisher Savitski, assistant professor of piano in the School of Music at the University of Alabama, will present a masterclass on April 26, 2017 using Remote Lesson technology developed by Yamaha, the world’s largest musical instrument manufacturer. Dr. Savitski will perform in New York City for music students assembled at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa – more than 1,000 miles away. The event will represent the first time students at the university’s School of Music, one of the finest in the country, get to experience this groundbreaking, distance-learning technology that enables top artists and educators to instruct students remotely, thanks to internet-connected Disklavier reproducing pianos located miles apart, in different states or even different countries. On short-term loan to the UA School of Music, the Yamaha Disklavier is a unique instrument capable of transmitting highly nuanced performance data – the actual key strokes and subtle gradations of pedal movement – between similarly equipped instruments over the internet. As Dr. Savitski performs on a DCFX Disklavier PRO concert grand piano in New York City, a similarly equipped instrument on stage at the school’s Moody Concert Hall will recreate, in real time, his exact performance – the piano’s keys and pedals moving up and down to capture the subtlest nuance. At the same time, students will be able to watch Dr. Savitski’s live performance on a big screen TV, with the video perfectly in sync with the piano on stage. Following the performance, Dr. Savitski will then conduct a remote master class with Doctoral student Minwoo Park. Freely offering his words of wisdom over video chat, Dr. Savitski will play back and forth with Mr. Park, in real time, making it seem as if the instructor and student are sitting on the same piano bench. Dr. Savitski was the first pianist to perform remotely using this technology. He played from his home in South Bend, Indiana on this type of instrument while connected to another located in New York City. Dr. Edisher Savitski, who holds DMA degree from Michigan State University, has enjoyed critical acclaim throughout his career. He has appeared as a soloist with the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra, Minnesota Orchestra, Utah Symphony and Pacific Symphony, among others, and has been performing at prestigious venues worldwide including Carnegie Zankel Hall and Carnegie Weill Hall, New York; Wigmore Hall, London; Great Hall of Mozarteum, Salzburg, Austria; and Teatro alla Scala, Milan, Italy. He also holds the distinction of being the first prize recipient of the 2006 Piano-e-Competition, which uses Disklavier pianos exclusively to enable contestants to audition remotely.

The cell membrane is the most important protective barrier in living cells and cell membrane targeted therapy may be a high-performance therapeutic modality for tumor treatment. Here, a novel charge reversible self-delivery chimeric peptide C –PRP–DMA is developed for long-term cell membrane targeted photodynamic therapy (PDT). The self-assembled C –PRP–DMA nanoparticles can effectively target to tumor by enhanced permeability and retention effect without additional carriers. After undergoing charge reverse in acidic tumor microenvironment, C –PRP–DMA inserts into the tumor cell membrane with a long retention time of more than 14 h, which is very helpful for in vivo applications. It is found that under light irradiation, the reactive oxygen species generated by the inserted C –PRP–DMA would directly disrupt cell membrane and rapidly induce cell necrosis, which remarkably increases the PDT effect in vitro and in vivo. This novel self-delivery chimeric peptide with a long-term cell membrane targeting property provides a new prospect for effective PDT of cancer.

Danish Maritime Authority (DMA) and German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) signed a common agreement on safety standards for the transport of passengers in the Flensborg Fjord on April 28. The agreement defines the scope of safety standards to be met by passenger vessels and ferries. For instance, vessels must be equipped with lifejackets, life rafts and the necessary fire safety. If these requirements are met, Germany inland waterway vessels will be allowed to carry passengers, use Danish ports and offer services on both the Danish and German part of the Flensborg Fjord, according to the DMA. “I am very pleased that the agreement establishes clear guidelines for ships that want to carry passengers between Denmark and Germany on Flensborg Fjord. Previously, different regulations in the two countries have been a source of great frustration for the shipowners affected,” Brian Mikkelsen, Minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs, said. “With this memorandum of understanding we have managed to meet the demand expressed by the inland navigation industry, the tourism sector, the cities and local authorities, namely to facilitate the carriage of passengers on the entire Flensborg Fjord,” Enak Ferlemann, Parliamentary State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, commented. Danish and German vessel operators who want to carry passengers in accordance with this agreement are advised to contact their national maritime authority in order to ensure that they meet the requirements established.

Twenty-nine countries from the Paris and the Tokyo Memoranda of Understanding have signed a new Ministerial Declaration on Port State Control (PSC), the Danish Maritime Authority (DMA) informed. The declaration, signed during the Ministerial Conference held in Vancouver, Canada, on May 3-4, 2017, is said to stipulate new goals for PSC and for cooperation on PSC. The DMA said that Danish key issues on, inter alia, enforcement of the sulphur regulations and the Polar Code have been included in the declaration. ”Port State Control is an important part of ensuring compliance with international regulation. That’s why it is gratifying to see that Danish key issues on enforcement of the sulphur regulations and the Polar Code have been included in the declaration. It is important to Denmark that environmental considerations are taken worldwide,” Andreas Nordseth, Director General of the Danish Maritime Authority, commented. In addition to the sulphur regulations and the Polar Code, the declaration focuses on other areas as well, such as the acceptance of electronic certificates, more transparency and reductions of the burdens imposed on the industry in connection with PSC inspections. Furthermore, the inspection regime should continuously be developed in order to optimise the use of the resources available, according to the DMA. The DMA further said that PSC inspections have proven to be an effective instrument for ensuring ships’ compliance with international regulations and, thus, a level playing field for the benefit of safety, the environment and seafarers. PSC inspections have also resulted in reduced number of defects and non-conformities. Additionally, the number of detentions has stabilised at around 3.5 per cent annually, just as more countries are now in compliance with the conditions for being included on the White List, the DMA explained. In addition to the twenty-nine countries, the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) Secretary General, a representative of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) as well as the International Shipping Federation (ISF), the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) and the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) attended the conference.

Tribune owns or operates 42 television stations in 33 markets, cable network WGN America, digital multicast network Antenna TV, minority stakes in the TV Food Network and CareerBuilder, and a variety of real estate assets. Tribune's stations, a list of which is available in Tribune's most recent Form 10-K filed on March 1, 2017, consist of 14 FOX, 12 CW, 6 CBS, 3 ABC, 2 NBC, 3 MyNetworkTV affiliates and 2 independent stations. The group includes stations in the top three DMAs in the country, seven in the top 10 and 34 in the top 50 DMAs.1 "This is a transformational acquisition for Sinclair that will open up a myriad of opportunities for the company," commented Chris Ripley, President and CEO of Sinclair. "The Tribune stations are highly complementary to Sinclair's existing footprint and will create a leading nationwide media platform that includes our country's largest markets. The acquisition will enable Sinclair to build ATSC 3.0 (Next Generation Broadcast Platform) advanced services, scale emerging networks and national sales, and integrate content verticals. The acquisition will also create substantial synergistic value through operating efficiencies, revenue streams, programming strategies and digital platforms." "This will be the largest acquisition in our company's history, and I want to thank everyone from the Sinclair team, as well as our advisors and bankers who made this possible," commented David Smith, Executive Chairman of Sinclair. "Television broadcasting is even more relevant today, especially when it comes to serving our local communities. Tribune's stations allow Sinclair to strengthen our commitment to serving local communities and to advance the Next Generation Broadcast Platform. This acquisition will be a turning point for Sinclair, allowing us to better serve our viewers and advertisers while creating value for our shareholders." "Today's announcement is the culmination of an extensive strategic review, which has delivered significant value to our stockholders," said Peter Kern, Tribune's Chief Executive Officer. "Since we announced the strategic review 15 months ago, we have streamlined the business, monetized non-core assets, strengthened our balance sheet and returned more than $800 million to stockholders -- all of which has resulted in a 50% increase in stockholder value. We are extremely proud to join Sinclair, and we're excited that Tribune stockholders and employees will have the opportunity to participate in the long-term growth of the combined company." The transaction has been unanimously approved by the Boards of Directors of both companies and is anticipated to close and fund in the fourth quarter of 2017. Completion of the transaction is subject to approval by Tribune's stockholders, as well as customary closing conditions, including approval by the Federal Communications Commission ("FCC"), and antitrust clearance.
