New Delhi: Five days after the murder of Tik Tok sensation and Gym Trainer Mohit Mor in Dwarka’s Najafgarh, Delhi police has connected the dots between Mohit’s murder and the Dwarka gang war that left two dead.Cops believe that these murders were a part of Land Mafias rivalry. Special Cell on Friday apprehended a juvenile for the murder. He along with two other members of Jyoti Sangwan-Kapil Sangwan gang alias Nandu gang pumped 13 bullets in Mohit who was sitting at the sofa of a photocopy shop on Sunday evening. Mohit died on the spot.

However, he also asked him to try and test him in any criminal act to trust his criminal capabilities. Though he did not get any immediate assignment but on May 21 he got a video call from the gangster Sandeep Pahalwan asking him to come to a particular place in Najafgarh. When he reached there, he was given a pistol. Two other gangsters Vikas and Rohit were already present there who were given weapons too along with the whereabouts of Mohit Mor.

He was gunned down there by these three assailants who fled after the shootout. “The motive behind was that Mangu (killed earlier), had invested about 30 Lakhs in a plot of land in Mohan Garden through deceased Mohit. After Mangu’s murder, Mohit did not return that amount to Mangu’s friends and instead took protection from Manjeet Mahal gang through Pradeep Solanki and VikasDalal. After the murder of VikasDalal (killed in Uttam Nagar shootout case), Mangu’s friends again demanded money from Mohit, to which he again refused. It was due to this reason that Sandeep alias Pahalwan got murdered Mohit through Vikas, Rohit and a juvenile,” said DCP Special Cell, Sanjeev Kumar Yadav.
Mumbai: Sourav Ganguly on Friday hoped the reappointment of the familiar Ravi Shastri as head coach will help India prevail in the “big games” and break the jinx of not winning a major ICC tournament in recent years. Shastri was recently reappointed for two years by the Kapil Dev-led Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC). “Ravi has been around for a while, five years he’s completed so he’s got an extension for two more years. Hopefully now India can go all the way in the two upcoming tournaments that are coming up, which is the T20 World Cup and the Champions Trophy which has now become a T20 format,” Ganguly said.

So, hopefully, they will get to the next step and create a winning combination.” India’s last ICC tournament triumph was the win in the 2013 Champions Trophy. “Hopefully they can get past the big games and win trophies in the next two years,” said the former captain who is not the best of friends with Shastri.

You saw how Shreyas Iyer played in that ODI series (against West Indies), you pick him and you give him the freedom to play those matches and I think that needs to happen with a lot of players and I am sure Virat will do that,” added Ganguly.

Immigration, in the words of historian Roger Daniels, is a fundamental human activity. Can it be restricted? Most immigrants use air routes to enter foreign countries, and these routes are almost entirely controlled by authorities in both the sending and receiving countries. The land and sea routes are somewhat less easy to monitor but, given modern surveillance technology, not entirely outside the realm of enforcement.Yet only a few island nations such as Australia and Singapore claim to micromanage immigration flows with success. Elsewhere, immigration enforcement is littered with failures, including in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, France, and Italy—countries that should by now be veterans in the enforcement business. With modern surveillance technology, these countries could, if they chose to allocate the required resources, monitor each and every entry and exit. It would be a messy and costly exercise. Also Read – Torpedoing BengalTake Donald Trump’s January 2017 executive order to restrict refugees and travelers from seven Muslim countries. Together these countries constitute a tiny slice of the overall number of international travelers to the United States. Even so, the executive order caused chaos at international airports, protests in major American cities, complaints from friendly governments around the world, and lawsuits from American corporations, universities, and local and state governments. Imagine the anarchy and economic effects a major restriction on travel and immigration would create! Also Read – Educational model of coexistenceWelcome to the twenty-first-century global economy. Crossborder mobility is integral to its functioning. The economic, administrative, and humanitarian toll of any major immigration restriction would be enormous, and nations contemplating these notions have to ask whether they are willing to pay the price. The simple fact is that, as I document below, restricting immigration in the twentyfirst century is not possible without substantially depressing overall cross-border mobility. Effective restrictions on immigration require controls on other types of international travels for tourism, schooling, business, and employment. Yet in the current paranoia when Marine Le Pen of France, Viktor Orban of Hungary, Matteo Salvini of Italy, Geert Wilders of Netherlands, Nigel Farage of the United Kingdom, Donald Trump of the United States, and other right-wing leaders demand restricting immigration and expelling immigrants, they do so without reference to restrictions on international travel. Advocates of anti-immigration policies generally want to restrict immigration but not international travel for business and tourism, in particular of their own citizens. Such travel not only greases the wheels of the global economy but also directly contributes substantially to global economic output. Yet failure to acknowledge the link between immigration and other kinds of cross-border mobility reflects incomplete understanding of immigration in the twentyfirst century. The New Immigration Critics argue that if immigration restrictions did not have a disastrous effect on the world economy a century ago when the United States clamped down on immigration with a series of laws culminating in the Immigration Act of 1924, why would it be any different now? The answer lies in the difference between immigration today and one hundred years ago; the differences in global interdependence and globalization today and one hundred years ago. Let’s start with the differences in immigration over the past century. Immigration in the 2010s is a tiny fraction of cross-border mobility. The World Tourism Organization periodically publishes estimates of international tourists. By these estimates, in 2016 there were 1.2 billion international tourist arrivals. This statistic pertains to the number of individual trips, not travelers. A tiny minority travels across national borders ten or more times a year, but the vast majority engages in international travel for tourism just once or twice a year. I asked a number of immigration historians, demographers, economists, and political scientists for a reasonable estimate of the average number of trips per international traveler. The response: it’s difficult to guess. But they unanimously agreed that it would be fewer than five. Assuming that on average each international tourist makes three trips a year, that would be 400 million international tourists; assuming that they make five trips a year, the number goes down to 240 million. To this must be added other nonimmigrants, such as students, scholars, and individuals traveling for work, if we are to arrive at an estimate of the overall size of annual cross-border movement. Compare that to the number of people who emigrate globally: about five million a year, according to data from the International Organization for Migration. The number of individuals engaged in international travel is at least fifty times the annual immigration, and possibly even larger. By contrast, in the early decades of the twentieth century crossborder mobility for tourism and business was modest. The cost, time, risk, and sheer uncertainty of long-distance travel were major impediments to international mobility. On average in 1900 it took four to six months via sea to travel from Bombay to London, a journey that can now be completed in just eight hours by air. There were no designated ships leaving Bombay for London every day or even every week. In January 2017 every day there were at least seven nonstop flights between the two cities, and eighty flights with one or more stops in other cities. Then, thousands of rich Chinese, Korean, and Japanese tourists just did not fly to Paris or London or New York for a weeklong vacation or for an extended weekend as they do in the twenty-first century. Then, cross-border travel for tourism and business was not as big a driver of economic growth as it is in the twenty-first century. In 2016 international tourism was a $1.5 trillion industry globally; China had 120 million inbound and 130 million outbound tourists. The United States received 74 million international tourists, and about the same number of U.S. citizens traveled abroad, of which about half traveled outside North America. Immigration in the 2010s is far more global than it was in the early 1900s, in terms of both origins and destinations. In the early 1900s most immigrants were from Europe, and most headed to the Americas. In the 2010s immigrants come from all across the globe. In 2016 the top regions of origin were Asia (49 percent of global immigration), Latin America (18 percent), Eastern Europe and Central Asia (16 percent), and the Middle East and North Africa (14 percent). Then, all the leading countries of origin were in northern and southern Europe. In the early decades of the twenty-first century all the top ten sending countries are outside Europe. The geographic landscape of immigration has reversed in many places: immigrant origin nations of the early twentieth century (Italy, France, Ireland, Spain) have become destinations, and countries that were once destinations (Brazil, Argentina, Chile) are now origins. Demographic projections suggest that by 2050, Africa will emerge as one of the biggest sources of emigration to Asia, Europe, and North America.

The UN World Food Programme (WFP) said a lack of funds was limiting its ability to provide a complete food basket to displaced families in Darfur and to pre-position food stocks ahead of the rainy season in July and August in a region where tens of thousands of people have been killed and up to 1.85 million others displaced in the past two years.The agency has so far received only $240 million of the more than $440 million it has sought to feed 2.8 million people affected by the conflict, which began when rebels took up arms two years ago, partly in protest at the distribution of economic resources, but has since been compounded by attacks by Janjaweed and other militias against villages and civilians.Meanwhile, in the south, Deputy High Commissioner for Refugees Wendy Chamberlin assessed the enormous needs that must be met if half a million refugees in that region are to return home and begin rebuilding their lives following last month’s accord that ended two decades of war between the Government and rebels.Today she was heading from the town of Yei in southern Sudan across the border to Uganda, which hosts some 223,000 Sudanese refugees. She had earlier visited the town of Rumbek where she saw first-hand some of the enormous rehabilitation needs facing this strife-torn region, including a lack of infrastructure, from roads to schools, clinics and buildings for the local civil authorities.Another urgent need is landmine clearance. Roads that refugees will use to return must be cleared, and the roads themselves are in poor condition. The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is working with Germany’s GTZ, which next week will start repair work on roads leading to southern Sudan from Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).Conditions such as these are among the major challenges to the return of some 500,000 refugees. UNHCR has plans in place for projects to improve conditions on the ground but urgently needs more than $62 million this year to begin small-scale rehabilitation projects to lay the groundwork for refugee return. So far, UNHCR has not received any contributions for its 2005 programme.Ms. Chamberlin stressed that UNHCR and the international community have a window of opportunity now to put infrastructure in place so that people can begin returning home – and stay home – after the rainy season ends in September. “We are in a race against time to get adequate conditions in place within the next few months,” she said.
by The Canadian Press Posted Nov 24, 2013 2:05 am MDT VANCOUVER – A businesswoman from Bellingham, Wash., says she hopes to educate consumers from Metro Vancouver and southern Vancouver Island about the small businesses in her community.Marisa Papetti says she’s launching The Crossing Guide Magazine online Boxing Day, and plans to distribute 30,000 copies of a print version throughout Metro Vancouver, BC Ferries’ terminals and border crossings in early January.She says she got the idea because Canadian shoppers were always asking her and others questions about where they could shop and eat at places other than big-box stores and chain restaurants.But Anita Huberman of the Surrey Board of Trade says the market is already competitive and any increase in U-S advertising will only compromise local businesses.She notes that six businesses in south Surrey recently closed shop due to a drop in foot traffic and says others will need to think creatively about marketing their products and services — possibly even south of the border.A recent survey by the Border Policy Research Institute at Western Washington University found that 30.5 per cent of motorists who were crossing the border were heading south to shop.

Haber will perform demonstration runs in Suriname soon using its hydrometallurgical “green” recovery technology on sulphide ores to prove to the government of Suriname, small scale miners and mining companies that it can more than double the current extraction efficiencies and eliminate the use of mercury. Albert B. Conti, CEO of Haber stated, “The newly elected Surinamese government has run on a platform of “green” gold mining to eliminate the use of mercury as an initiative to solve the environmental problems plaguing the country and has solicited Haber to demonstrate its technology as a possible method to effectuate its stated goal. Also the government’s interest in implementing Haber’s Strategic Abatement of Mercury and Poverty (STAMP) program to deal with small scale miners would create new opportunities for the people of Suriname and would have a significant and profound humanitarian, environmental and economic impact on Suriname’s development dynamics and could greatly stimulate its economy.” Haber’s demonstrations will use concentrates and head ore received from private and public gold mining companies. The Surinamese government and officials of international organisations will also be in attendance to observe the testing. Currently gold mining companies in Suriname are only obtaining gold recovery efficiencies in the mid 30% range using mercury. Haber has extensively tested representative materials from the region and obtained efficiencies in the 90% range, indicating that Haber’s “green” technology, if commercially implemented, could potentially more than double revenues without any increase in mining volumes. One of the objectives of the demonstration is to confirm this significant efficiency improvement to all stakeholders.Successful demonstration results would lead to the initiation of government discussions on a Suriname/Haber strategic partnership drafted to advance the countries “green” gold initiative. Furthermore, it was indicated that as part of any potential final agreement the government would provide or assist in the necessary funding to begin a small commercial Haber pilot processing plant on a current Surinamese mining operation that is using mercury.Conti continues, “The country has large gold resources which have not yet been fully exploited. Accordingly, there are numerous opportunities where Haber’s technology could be used and revenues generated. Suriname represents a unique opportunity for our company to provide an environmentally friendly process to the mining community with significant opportunities for increasing the extraction efficiencies and thereby revenues for Haber and all mercury users.“We expect to begin the gold processing demonstrations before early-October in Paramaribo and intend on establishing a permanent operations office in Paramaribo before the end of the year. Haber has pursued for nearly six years introduction of its ‘green’ technology to eliminate the use of mercury in gold mining. It now appears that the recently elected Surinamese government’s strong ‘green’ gold policy presents a significant opportunity to begin to realise that objective. Success in Suriname would present a country blueprint on how other countries can successfully transition into becoming ‘green’ gold producers with Haber’s environmentally friendly technology being an integral part of that solution. However, it must be noted that there is no guarantee that Haber can successfully meet the protocol objectives of the demonstrations or enter into any agreements with the government or mining companies”.

Zombie warningHughes warned that despite the gradual improvement in the economy, many businesses were unable to meaningfully service their debts, and could be in danger if lenders start to call in loan security.“Over the past number of years, the incentive has simply not been there for corporate borrowers which have fallen behind in their repayments to engage in a realistic assessment of their financial situation.”He said that many firms have gotten by while making minimal or intermittent payments. NEARLY 800 JOBS were saved by the examinership process during the second quarter of the year, new data has shown.The updated Hughes Blake SME examinership index revealed that 794 jobs were saved across six firms, five of which were SMEs.The most high-profile name on the list was sportswear chain Elvery’s, where 654 jobs were saved after the company exited examinership this year.The five other companies to come out of examinership were spread across the hospitality, construction and retail sectors.Hughes Blake said that the fact that the companies exiting examinership were in sectors worst affected by the recession showed that the shift in economic outlook and consumer sentiment was changing the business environment.Managing partner Neil Hughes said: “From our perspective as auditors of a wide range of owner manager, entrepreneurial and family firms, a corner has most certainly been turned regarding their trade.” The feedback we are getting from the wide range of organisations we work with is that business is more robust than it has been in some time. He urged struggling businesses to consider examinership through the circuit court system as a viable option for debt resolution.Read: Carl Scarpa and Flannery’s Pub among eight firms who saved over 400 jobs so far this year>Read: Elverys may not have to shed jobs following appointment of examiner, experts say> As long as a large number of family businesses remain in this situatoin around the country, a widespread lasting economic recovery will remain elusive.

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, March 5, 2018 – Grand Bahama – The success of the newly launched Grand Bahama Micro and Small Business Economic, Empowerment and Incentive Program was evident in the certification of a second group of potential entrepreneurs from the program on Monday, February 26, 2018, in the Office of the Prime Minister.The certification of 15 new business owners and the expectation of the program’s being extended to not just a third, but also a fourth group of individuals has brought to light what Minister of State for Grand Bahama, Senator Kwasi Thompson has been touting all along “that small businesses will be a big part of the economic turnaround for Grand Bahama.”In addition to the 15 new self-starter businesses, eight existing businesses also received financial grants and certification to help in the growth of their already established enterprises. The businesses represented a cross section of careers, including restaurant, pastry and bakery, nails and cosmetics, bone fishing, sign making, perfume making and landscaping.Senator Kwasi Thompson told the group of entrepreneurs that there are positive signs and good things happening in Freeport, if they chose to see those positive signs. “I want to encourage you to take advantage of the opportunities that are coming,” said Minister Thompson.The Minister outlined some of the projects that are in the process of coming to fruition in Grand Bahama, which he said, will help to revamp the economy of Grand Bahama. Projects like the sale and re-opening of the Lucayan Resort, the re-started resort in West End that had once been a Ginn project, the Oban Oil Refinery project, two small projects in West End, inclusive the Sea Wood Fishing Village and the Blue Marlin Cove marina, two light manufacturing companies and other such projects.“I don’t outline these projects or bring them up to suggest that Grand Bahama has turned any corner or that Grand Bahama is doing well, but I bring them up and talk about them because we all need to know that there are positive things happening in Grand Bahama,” added Minister Thompson.“We also need to know what opportunities there are for us here in Grand Bahama. Think out of the box. Don’t limit yourself to the old ways of doing business. The good thing is that we have the access where your entire market does not have to be only people in Freeport, Grand Bahama, or even just in The Bahamas.“The entire world now can become your market.”He said that the time has come now where Bahamians begin to think globally and think about exporting their talents and their goods and services.“You have the talent, you have the skills, to be able to compete with anyone, anywhere in the world,” added Minister Thompson. “In fact, you are the best in the world at what you do, because nobody could be Bahamian better than you and nobody can produce Bahamian better than you.”Also giving the new business owners, as well as the established entrepreneurs, some words of encouragement was Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture, the Hon. Michael Pintard, who reminded the business owners that they have to be committed and disciplined, not just in how they manage their respective companies, but how they manage their finances.“You have to be prepared to wake up early, pray up, show up, stay late if necessary, in order to build your empire. Not everyone is an entrepreneur, so you are a unique group among hundreds of thousands in the Bahamas.“But if our economy in Grand Bahama is to recover and if the Bahamas is to grow at the rate which we believe it has the potential to grow, much of that success is going to come as a result of the efforts by people such as yourselves. So we are happy to be working in conjunction with you.”Minister Pintard pointed out that micro and small business enterprises help to fuel the economy of countries around the world and that The Bahamas was no exception. He said that one of the things that is presently being discussed among the government and the private sector is how to obtain the number of people required by Bahamian and foreign business owners, in order to sustain those businesses.He said one of the things he and Minister Thompson discussed while putting together the program, was deciding the types of businesses they ought to fund.“The view was that we should fund businesses that have an opportunity to make it with the present population size we have,” said Minister Pintard.“So, you are uniquely positioned because although it would benefit you to have in excess of thousands more consumers in which to market your products and services, you have the capacity to do a volume of business that would be beneficial to you, your family and this community, right now.“We wanted to identify businesses that would be in the creative arts, businesses that would affect tourism, or that would deal with personal consumption…and all of you represent these kinds of businesses.”He admitted that every business will find itself in a competitive market, not just locally or nationally, but internationally, and with the ability to be paired with mentors who will assist them in ensuring that their respective businesses are successful.By: Andrew CoakleyPhoto Captions:Header: Fifteen new self-starter companies and eight already existing businesses all received certificates and financial grants after successfully completing the required classes in the Grand Bahama Micro and Small Business, Economic Empowerment and Incentive Program on Monday, February 26, 2018 in the Office of the Prime Minister (Grand Bahama).

Khaleda Zia. File PhotoThe Supreme Court fixed Sunday for delivering order on a petition of the state seeking stay on a High Court order granting six months bail to BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia in an arson case filed under the Special Powers Act in Cumilla, reports UNB.A four-member Appellate Division bench, led by chief justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, fixed the date after the hearing on the petition.Attorney general Mahbubey Alam stood for the state while lawyer AJ Mohammad Ali represented Khaleda.Earlier on Monday, the High Court granted a 6-month bail to the BNP chairperson following a bail petition in the arson case.Later, the government filed a petition seeking a stay on the HC order on the following day.On 23 July, the HC directed the Cumilla Special Judge Court-1 to dispose of the bail petition filed by BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia in the case within 26 July.Khaleda’s lawyer filed a bail petition with High Court as the Cumilla court rejected the bail petition of Khaleda on 25 July.Eight people were killed and 20 others injured when miscreants hurled a petrol bomb at a bus at Jogmohanpur in Chouddagram of Cumilla district during the BNP-led alliance’s movement on 3 February 2015.Two cases were filed against Khaleda in this connection.On 8 February, Khaleda Zia was sent to jail after a special court sentenced her to five years’ rigorous imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.

Many of the features of the Elite controller aren’t actually unique to Microsoft’s peripheral. In fact, a company called Scuf Gaming has been developing and offering such customization for a while, and they have the patents to backup their work. So, rather than face a potential lawsuit in the near future, Microsoft decided to work with Scuf.In total, Scuf has 17 patents, and 34 patents pending relating to the Elite Controller. How did Microsoft handle licensing those patents? By making Scuff the exclusive official third-party accessory partner for Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller.It seems likely Scuf will be getting some form of payment based on sales of the Elite Controller, but will also benefit from a lot of free marketing and association with the Xbox brand, which will no doubt have a positive impact on sales of all their controllers across all consoles.Depending on how popular the Elite Controller turns out to be, I’m sure Microsoft will be at least thinking about a Scuf acquisition down the line. Those patents are worth something, and may end up being useful if they find the competition is infringing. We all remember why the original PS3 Sixaxis controller didn’t have vibration built-in, don’t we?

Image courtesy of Business Wire. October 5, 2009 – In a bold effort to provide women and their doctors with better information about how and when to take the necessary steps to obtain an early diagnosis for ovarian cancer, the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance has taken the lead in posting guidance for diagnoses on its web site (ovariancancer.org/diary). The Interim Practice Guidance, endorsed by prominent specialists in the field of gynecologic cancer, marks the first time ovarian cancer diagnostic protocols have been made available to the public. In addition to the guidance, a Symptom Diary that helps women measure the persistency and severity of their symptoms (initially developed in the United Kingdom by Ovarian Cancer Action), has been reproduced in conjunction with the Gynecologic Cancer Foundation, with permission for use in the United States. Annually, more than 15,000 women die from ovarian cancer, and survival rates have hovered at 40 percent for years, primarily due to the lack of a reliable early detection test, and that many of the symptoms often mimic other, less life-threatening problems. Karen Orloff Kaplan, CEO of the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance believes this important information should be shared publicly to help women with ovarian cancer get diagnosed sooner. “Giving women the information they need to more effectively listen to their bodies and recognize the symptoms of ovarian cancer can help reduce the number of deaths from this hideous disease. By using the Symptom Diary and the Interim Practice Guidance, we believe that more lives can be saved.”Barbara Goff, M.D. of the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance also endorsed the preparation and release of the guidance. “I think this guidance is important because the symptoms of ovarian cancer are very common and we all have them from time to time. This guidance summary provides information to practitioners and women about when symptoms may be concerning for ovarian cancer and what are the possible diagnostic tests that can be done if ovarian cancer is of concern.”For more information: www.ovariancancer.org/diary FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Breast Imaging | August 02, 2019 Volpara to Distribute Screenpoint Medical’s Transpara AI Solution Volpara Solutions and ScreenPoint Medical BV signed an agreement under which Volpara will sell ScreenPoint’s Transpara… read more IBM collected a dataset of 52,936 images from 13,234 women who underwent at least one mammogram between 2013 and 2017, and who had health records for at least one year prior to the mammogram.

Feature | Ultrasound Imaging | December 01, 2015 Ultrasound Reveals Knuckle-Cracking Fireworks Results suggest cracking sound, bright flash observed on ultrasound are related to dynamic pressure changes associated with gas bubble in the joint The top image shows a knuckle joint on ultrasound prior to cracking, and below at the moment it cracks, showing a burst of light across the ultrasound image in the joint.December 1, 2015 — Research presented at the 2015 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) tackles one of life’s great mysteries: what causes a knuckle to “crack” out loud?Watch video of a cracking knuckle”It’s extremely common for joints to crack, pop and snap,” said Robert D. Boutin, M.D., professor of radiology at University of California, Davis (UC Davis) Health System. “We were interested in pursuing this study because there’s a raging debate about whether the knuckle-cracking sound results from a bubble popping in the joint or from a bubble being created in the joint.”In the first study of its kind, researchers recorded simultaneous audio and visual evidence of knuckles cracking. Forty healthy adults, including 17 women and 23 men (age range 18-63), were examined at UC Davis with ultrasound imaging, as they attempted to crack the knuckle at the base of each finger, known in medical parlance as the metacarpophalangeal joint (MPJ). The participants included 30 individuals with a history of habitual knuckle cracking and 10 without.While some participants stated that they had never intentionally cracked their knuckles, other participants did it frequently every day – up to 20 times per day for the past 40 years.Orthopedists blinded to the participants’ knuckle-cracking history evaluated the participants for grip strength, range of motion and laxity of each MPJ both before and after the ultrasound examination.Using a small transducer, a sonographer recorded video images of 400 MPJs, as participants attempted to crack their knuckles. The sonographer also captured static images of each MPJ before and after participants tried their hands at cracking.Two radiologists interpreted the ultrasound images, looking for sonographic evidence that would correlate with the audible cracks, which occurred in 62 of the 400 joints imaged.”What we saw was a bright flash on ultrasound, like a firework exploding in the joint,” Boutin said. “It was quite an unexpected finding.”Using the flashes on the ultrasound images, the radiologists were able to identify the joints with audible cracks with at least 94 percent specificity.”There have been several theories over the years and a fair amount of controversy about what’s happening in the joint when it cracks,” Boutin said. “We’re confident that the cracking sound and bright flash on ultrasound are related to the dynamic changes in pressure associated with a gas bubble in the joint.” As for which comes first — the cracking sound or the flash of light — Boutin said that more research is needed.The physical examinations revealed no immediate pain, swelling or disability in the knuckle-cracking group and no immediate difference in laxity or grip strength between the participants who cracked their knuckles and those who didn’t.”We found that there was no immediate disability in the knuckle crackers in our study, although further research will need to be done to assess any long-term hazard – or benefit – of knuckle cracking,” Boutin said.The ultrasound system used in the study was the GE Logic E9.Co-authors on the study are Anuj Netto, M.D., M.P.H., David Nakamura, M.D., Cyrus Bateni, M.D., Michael S. Cronan, R.T., Robert Szabo, M.D., M.P.H., and Abhijit J.
