first_imgThe Canadian Press WINNIPEG – About two weeks before a 15-year-old Indigenous girl’s body was found in the Red River, her accused killer argued loudly with her and mentioned something about a river, a Winnipeg courtroom was told Thursday.The second-degree murder trial of Raymond Cormier, accused in the August 2014 death of Tina Fontaine, heard Thursday from Sarah Holland. Holland and her boyfriend at the time rented a townhouse and frequently let Cormier, who was homeless, sleep over.Holland testified that Tina Fontaine came to her house twice that summer, and was brought the first time by her much-older friend Cormier, who was 52.The second time, Holland said, Tina came over in the afternoon by herself and Cormier came later.Holland said she was in her room upstairs when Tina came to her complaining about Cormier.“She ran upstairs and asked if she could spend time in my room because he was creeping her out,” Holland said.Cormier came upstairs with Holland’s boyfriend and tried to grope the 15-year-old Tina, Holland said.“I observed him trying to grab her boobs a few times and (saying) ‘just do me’.”Holland said she told Cormier to go back downstairs and he did, while Tina stayed with her.A few hours later, Holland said, Cormier and Tina were outside on the street, arguing loudly.“I heard her yell she was going to call the cops,” Holland told the jury. “All I heard from Cormier was ‘river’.”Under cross-examination, Holland admitted she couldn’t hear much of what Cormier was saying because he was not talking as loudly as Tina.The dispute occurred on the night of August 6th, court was told.Two days after that, Tina ran away from a hotel where she had been placed by Child and Family Services. On August 17, her body was pulled from the river, wrapped in a duvet cover and weighed down by rocks.Court was told earlier in the trial Tina was a sexually exploited youth who had recently left her home on the Sagkeeng First Nation to visit her mother in Winnipeg. Her great-aunt in Sagkeeng alerted Child and Family Services when she couldn’t get ahold of Tina, and Tina ran away when placed in Winnipeg hotels and a youth shelter.Cormier told police in a videotaped interview two months after Tina’s death that he and Tina did indeed argue on the street outside Sarah Holland’s home.He said Tina was angry because he had sold her bicycle for drugs and walked away. He returned to the house and never saw her again, he told the officers.Cormier also told police there was a man on the other side of the street that night, a little behind Tina, who might have followed her.Cormier described the man as middle-aged with shoulder-length dirty blonde hair, and said he looked like Robert Plant, the singer for the 1970s rock group Led Zeppelin.last_img read more

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A Go Fund Me campaign has started for a Fort St. John family who lost everything due to a house fire on August 5th.Greg Slack, Robyn Carr and their three children were luckily out of the house when the fire occurred at approximately 4:50 on Sunday. Fire crews were able to put out the fire within one hour but due to smoke damage, the house was unsalvagable.Fort St. John Fire Department Captain Marco D’Agostino explained that the fire started in the laundry room likely due to a build-up of lint in the dryer. D’agostino added that the family’s dryer had plastic tubes in the back which when exposed to excessive heat don’t react well. D’agistino went on to warn residents to check dryer lint deposits regularly so this doesn’t happen to their homes in the future.The family lost all their clothes, appliances, personal items, and children’s toys, making them have to effectively start from scratch.Anyone interested in donating to the Go Fund Me can click here.last_img read more

first_imgWomen’s publisher Meredith Corp. Thursday reported net earnings for its 12-month fiscal 2010 of $103.96 million, up from a loss of $107.08 million during its fiscal 2009 calendar year. Revenues dipped slightly to $1.38 billion from $1.4 billion.According to chairman and CEO Stephen M. Lacy, the company’s fiscal 2010 (ended June 30) “marked a return to earnings growth as we strengthened our business across the board.  We increased advertising market share in both magazine and television, grew the size of our consumer audiences, and generated higher sales of our licensed products at retail. Additionally, we made important investments in new media platforms including mobile and e-tablets.”In terms of magazine industry advertising market share, Meredith says its share increased to 12.3 percent—the highest mark it has reached in company history (it was at 9.5 percent two years ago). Meredith’s National Media Group, which publishes its magazines, reported a full-year operating profit of $167 million, an increase of 11 percent over 2009. Revenues dipped slightly to $1.11 billion, including $526 million in advertising revenue. In its fiscal fourth quarter, the group’s operating profit remained flat at $46 million. Overall revenue was $288 million and advertising revenue totaled $135 million—both flat over last year’s period. Meanwhile, Meredith’s Interactive Media division saw its advertising revenues jump 17 percent for the full-year term, the company says.”The combination of enhanced sales and marketing strategies, business re-engineering and careful control of expenses all contributed to National Media Group 11 percent operating profit growth,” says Lacy. “We also strengthened our connection to the consumer, delivered market share gains and made investments in new digital media platforms.”Meredith says operating costs (excluding special items) declined by 3 percent during the year and it reduced its debt by 20 percent to $300 million. It projects overall company advertising revenues to grow 6 to 7 percent during the fiscal 2011 first quarter and ad revenues for the National Media Group to “be flat to down slightly on higher nets per page,” compared to the 2010-year period.last_img read more

first_imgPower was out for residents from Diamond Ridge to the Old Sterling Highway for about an hour on Monday afternoon. The incident, which took place on the Old Sterling, also caused a small fire.The outage started just after 2:30 p.m. and affected about 630 Homer Electric customers.Old Sterling Highway HEA Power Pole Fire – Photo by John GettyHEA spokesperson Joe Gallagher says the outage was caused by the failure of an insulator on a power pole. Insulators protect the poles from the heat of the power lines. The failure caused some sparking on the pole which lit a small fire around it.“When HEA crews arrived at the pole, they were able to see there was a small fire burning at the pole. We quickly made contact with emergency services. The Division of Forestry arrived along with the Anchor Point Fire Department. They quickly extinguished the fire. It never really amounted to much.”Gallagher says the furthest the fire got away from the pole was about 25 feet before it was extinguished.“Our guys were able to go right back in afterwards and make some repairs to the power pole. We had power back on at 3:45.”He says HEA is prepared for the unexpected, but this unseasonally warm and dry weather warrants some extra caution. There was no additional damage reported and no injuries.“With this weather we’re experiencing right now, it’s very nice out and very warm, but it’s extremely dry. We’re all very well aware of the fire danger that exists right now.”The Kenai Peninsula is under a burn suspension until conditions change.last_img read more

However, both actors have always denied dating reports.And now, a report in Bombay Times said that Kushal and Ridhima were indeed in a relationship but have called it quits. Their relationship lasted for about nine months. “Ridhima and Kushal were indeed dating and their relationship lasted for around nine months. However, their priorities were different and they outgrew each other. Unfollowing each other on social media isn’t a recent development, it happened around four months ago,” a source told the daily.When BT asked Ridhima, who was last seen on Khatron Ke Khiladi 9, about the dating rumours with Kushal, she went on to say, “I have immense respect for him and he is a great friend. I wish him well for all his endeavours. As of now, I am focussing on my career and don’t want to be written about for anything else. How can a relationship be my identity? I have worked very hard to reach where I am today. I don’t seek publicity through others.”The actress, however, admitted that all is not well between them. When quizzed about unfollowing Kushal on social media, Ridhima replied, “Do friends not fight and unfollow each other?”Earlier, Kushal had said to The Times of India, “I get along with all my co-actors; usually, I don’t make friends very easily, but when I do, they are more than friends and that’s called ‘family’. While Ridhima stated, “We are just good friends. I have worked with Kushal and it’s common to develop a good rapport with your co-actors.”Kushal was earlier in a much-publicised relationship with Gauahar Khan. The duo’s love had blossomed inside the Bigg Boss 7 house. Ridhima Pandit and Kushal TandonTwitterlast_img read more

first_imgThe Global Positioning System time epoch is ending and another one is beginning, an event that could affect your devices or any equipment or legacy system that relies on GPS for time and location.Most clocks obtain their time from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). But the atomic clocks on satellites are set to GPS time. The timing signals you can get from GPS satellites are very accurate and globally available. And so they’re often used by systems as the primary source of time and frequency accuracy.When Global Positioning System was first implemented, time and date function was defined by a 10-bit number. So unlike the Gregorian calendar, which uses year, month and date format, the GPS date is a “week number,” or WN. The WN is transmitted as a 10-bit field in navigation messages and rolls over or resets to zero every 1,024 weeks.Since that time, the count has been incremented by one each week, and broadcast as part of the GPS message.The GPS week started January 6, 1980 and it became zero for the first time midnight August 21, 1999.  At midnight April 6, the GPS WN is scheduled to reset, which could be problematic for legacy systems and impact time and the time tags in location data. Utilities and cellular networks also use GPs receivers for timing and controlling certain functions. For instance, the U.S. power grid uses timestamps embedded in GPS. The U.S. Department of Energy says that “GPS supports a wide variety of critical grid functions that allow separate components on the electric system to work in unison.”It should be noted that the WN restart date could be different in some devices, depending on when the firmware was created.The bug, which some has described as the Y2K of GPS, will cause problems in some GPS receivers such as resetting the time and corrupting location data. The GPS WN rollover event may hurt the reliability of the reported UTC, according to U.S. Department of Homeland Security. HDS said an GPS device that conforms to the latest IS-GPS-200 and provides UTC should not be adversely affected. The agency also provided a word of caution:However, tests of some GPS devices revealed that not all manufacturer implementations correctly handle the April 6, 2019 WN rollover. Additionally, some manufacturer implementations interpret the WN parameter relative to a date other than January 5, 1980. These devices should not be affected by the WN rollover on April 6, 2019 but may experience a similar rollover event at a future date.If you own a newer commercial device with updated software, it’s most likely fine. But double check and make sure the software is up-to-date.The U.S. Naval Observatory suggests contact the manufacturer of your GPS receiver if you have been effected by the GPS week number rollover. Some GPS receiver manufacturers can be found at the GPS World website.Work has been done to avoid this kind of rollover issue — or at least punt it down the line. The modernized GPS navigation message uses a 13-bit field that repeats every 8,192 weeks.last_img read more

More efficient storage and sharing of medical data are crucial in the transition to value-based healthcare, and radiology plays a central role in these efforts. Several major studies published in 2016 examined the role of informatics technology in medical imaging, and many of those studies were highlighted in a session at the 102nd annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 27-Dec. 2, 2016, in Chicago.The session was conducted by William Hsu, Ph.D., assistant prof. in residence in the Department of Radiological Sciences at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), and Charles E. Kahn, Jr., M.D., MS, professor and vice chairman of radiology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. The presented research highlighted four primary roles informatics can play in a radiology setting: •    Interoperability and communication•    Natural language processing•    Radiomics and radiogenomics•    Machine learning Deep LearningAt the cutting edge of informatics is deep learning, a term heard at numerous sessions and vendor booths throughout RSNA 2016. Deep learning (and related concepts like artificial intelligence and machine learning) involves teaching a computer to recognize patterns, building a reference library to the point the computer can eventually identify and predict patterns for itself. Deep learning research as applied to radiology has focused on building algorithms to review imaging cases so the computer can eventually recognize various disease states and diagnoses for itself. This type of computer-aided diagnosis was tested in several recent studies. One retrospective study by a team from the University of California-Irvine tested an automated system for detection and anatomic localization of traumatic thoracic and lumbar vertebral body fractures in computed tomography (CT) scans. The study set consisted of exams from 104 patients — 94 were positive for fractures and the remaining 10 were controls — with 141 total fractures identified. Locations were marked and classified by a radiologist, and then the images were divided into training and testing subsets. The system detected 28 of 34 findings in the training set, and 87 of 107 findings in the testing set. False-positive rates were 2.5 and 2.7 findings per patient, respectively.5 Teaching a computer to reach this level of diagnostic certainty is no small feat: A significant number of imaging cases must be reviewed to build a suitable reference library from which the machine can draw accurate conclusions. What constitutes a significant number, however, is still being determined, and it can vary from one algorithm to another. A study begun in 2015 at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Harvard Medical School seeks to determine how much data is needed to train such a system to achieve the necessary high accuracy. The research team initially tasked a convolutional neural network (CNN), a type of machine learning system, to classify axial CT images into six anatomical classes. Six different sizes of training dataset were used (consisting of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 images). The system will then be tested on 6,000 CT images from the MGH picture archiving and communication system (PACS) to gauge accuracy.6  News | Artificial Intelligence | August 08, 2019 Half of Hospital Decision Makers Plan to Invest in AI by 2021 August 8, 2019 — A recent study conducted by Olive AI explores how hospital leaders are responding to the imperative read more News | Medical 3-D Printing | August 08, 2019 RSNA and ACR to Collaborate on Landmark Medical 3D Printing Registry The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) will launch a new medical… read more Related Content Radiomics and RadiogenomicsPart of teaching computer algorithms to assist with detection and diagnosis from medical images requires the algorithm to understand the phenotype, or physical appearance, of different types of images. One method for doing so is employing radiomics, where data-characterization algorithms are used to extract quantitative features from medical images.  As with any other type of analysis, however, the results must be reproducible in order to be used confidently. In a study published last March, a team from Columbia University Medical Center explored how different CT imaging parameters and sequences impacted the reproducibility of radiomic data.CT scans from lung cancer patients were used, and each scan was reconstructed using different parameters, including: •    Six different imaging settings;•    Varying slice thicknesses (1.25, 2.5 and 5 mm); and•    Both sharp and smooth reconstruction algorithms. The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s.

In imaging applications, a system could combine vocabulary analysis with an image reference library to provide decision support in diagnosing a medical condition. Hsu highlighted a pair of studies published last year that applied NLP algorithms to different medical imaging cases. The first study investigated how data extracted from a mammography report could be used for decision support. The research team built a decision support system (DSS) that picked out Breast Imaging-Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) descriptors regarding lesion malignancy. The goal was for the DSS to accurately predict diagnosis of breast cancer from the radiology text reports based on the probability of malignancy and the final BI-RADS assessment category. Using a reference standard of 300 mammography reports, the DSS was able to achieve 97.58 percent accuracy in predicting the correct final BI-RADS category.7Similar efforts were applied to echocardiography reports in a study from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. This analysis had a slightly broader scale, using a custom-built, echocardiography-specific NLP tool dubbed EchoInfer to extract multiple data elements related to cardiovascular structure and function from reports. The system analyzed 15,116 reports from 1,684 patients, and extracted 59 quantitative and 21 qualitative data elements per report. Sampling from 50 reports, researchers found the system achieved a precision of 94.06 percent and a recall rate of 92.21 percent across all 80 data elements; precision was >97 percent and recall was 92-99.9 percent for an expanded sample size of 400 reports. Any errors were attributed to the non-standardized nature of the reports.8   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.

For providers, this leads to better cooperation and coordination, which for patients translates into better care. One way that improved coordination can manifest is through better standardization of care. A study published in the December 2016 Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology looked at physician response to newly created standardized reporting templates for five interventional radiology (IR) procedures. The templates were distributed to 20 IR practices, and the researchers evaluated template adoption (via random sampling) and physician satisfaction (via survey) after one year. Ten institutions implemented the new templates, with a total mean report usage of 57 percent. Each practice modified the templates according to their own preferences, editing for length, wordiness and/or the number of required fill-in fields. The researchers saw a significant positive correlation between a reduced number of fill-in fields and template adoption.1Improving the readability and ease of sharing of radiology results offers great opportunities for radiologists to enhance their value to other members of the healthcare team — an idea supported by recent research. A study published online last May by the journal Radiology asked 30 primary care providers (PCPs) about how they follow up on incidental imaging findings from radiology reports. Some providers shared that while they felt compelled to do follow-up, they found the process frustrating if there were no explicit recommendations in the radiology report.2 While results like these are largely qualitative in nature, informatics technology and the improved coordination it brings can have a quantifiable positive impact on patient care. A study from the August 2016 Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association found that quicker access to patient data via health information exchange (HIE) resulted in faster time to treatment in the emergency department of a large academic medical center — for each one-hour reduction in access time, visit length was 52.9 minutes shorter, likelihood of imaging was lower (by up to 2.5 percent, depending on modality), likelihood of admission was reduced 2.4 percent and average charges were $1,187 lower.3Thanks to patient portals, electronic medical records and other similar technologies, patients are seeing similar benefits from increased contact with radiologists. Such systems are still developing and provider adoption is still setting in, but research suggests patients do find value in them. A cross-sectional study published in the June 2016 issue of Academic Radiology looked at over 129,000 patients who had online portal access in a large health system in 2014. The primary point of interest was how many patients viewed their radiology reports, lab results and any clinical notes. Out of 61,131 patients with at least one radiology report available, 31,308 (51.2 percent) viewed them. Not surprisingly, patients who also viewed lab results or clinical notes were significantly more likely to view their radiology reports.4 The researchers also collected socio-demographic data to assess factors that might influence report viewing. Women, patients 25-39 years old and English speakers were the most likely to access their results online (all three groups saw above 50 percent usage). Traditionally underserved populations, including Medicare patients and African-Americans, were among the least likely to access online reports.4 News | Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) | August 06, 2019 Canon Medical Introduces Encore Orian MR Upgrade Program Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. is helping to provide low-cost patient care solutions for its customers with the launch… read more References1.     McWilliams, J.P., et al. “Standardized Reporting in IR: A Prospective    Multi-Institutional Pilot Study,” Journal of Vascular and    Interventional Radiology, Dec. 2016.2.     Zafar, H.M., Bugos, E.K., Langlotz, C.P., Frasso, R. “Chasing a Ghost:    Factors that Influence Primary Care Physicians to Follow Up on    Incidental Imaging Findings,” Radiology, published online May 17,    2016.3.     Everson, J., Kocher, K.E., Adler-Milstein, J. “Health information ex    change associated with improved emergency department care    through faster accessing of patient information from outside    organizations,” Journal of the American Medical Informatics As    sociation, Aug. 12, 2016.4.     Miles, R.C., Hippe, D.S., Elmore, J.G., et al. “Patient Access to Online    Radiology Reports: Frequency and Sociodemographic    Characteristics Associated with Use,” Academic Radiology,    published online June 2016.5.     Burns, J.E., Yao, J., Munoz, H., Summers, R.M. “Automated detection,    localization and classification of traumatic vertebral body fractures    in the thoracic and lumbar spine at CT,” Radiology, Jan. 2016. http://     Cho, J., Lee, K., Shin, E., et al. “How much data is needed to train    a medical image deep learning system to achieve necessary high    accuracy?,” arXiv:1511.06348v2, Jan. 7, 2016.  7.     Bozkurt, S., Gimenez, F., Burnside, E.S., et al. “Using automatically    extracted information from mammography reports for decision    support,” Journal of Biomedical Informatics, Aug. 2016.

The data indicated that radiomic features were largely reproducible across various imaging settings; however, the researchers warned that smooth and sharp reconstruction algorithms should not be used interchangeably.9 The research team conducted a separate analysis to see how different imaging parameters revealed different radiomic features. To achieve this, they examined the repeat scans reconstructed at the same slice thickness but with different algorithms (for a total of three settings). A total of 89 quantitative features were grouped into 15 feature classes. Results showed that basic features such as tumor size, histogram-derived density and shape were reproducible across all settings, while texture features were more inconsistent.9 last_img read more

Image courtesy of Pingkun Yan and researchers from NIH, University of British Columbia and Queens University.May 28, 2019 — Engineers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute are working to improve imaging methods in order to make medicine more precise and personalized. This work will be a critical component of a new interdisciplinary research project funded with $1.4 million from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that seeks to improve radiation therapy for high-risk prostate cancer patients.“In order to do precision medicine, you need to see better,” said Pingkun Yan, assistant professor of biomedical engineer at Rensselaer. “If you cannot see, you can’t do anything.”Yan’s expertise in imaging will support researchers from University of Texas Southwestern, led by Jing Wang, associate professor of radiation oncology, who are currently conducting a clinical trial using an approach known as stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), which delivers high doses of radiation directly to a tumor.Multiple clinical trials have shown that high doses of radiation to prostate tumors can result in improved cancer outcomes, Yan said, but delivery of that radiation must be localized and precise to protect other healthy tissue nearby.One of the challenges with SBRT is that the prostate can move and deform during delivery. To make sure the accurate dose is being given in the right location, a reliable and accurate tumor tracking method is needed. But traditional ultrasound technology is not sensitive enough to differentiate between the prostate tumor and healthy tissue.That’s where Yan comes in. He and his team will develop an imaging method to help researchers distinguish between the healthy tissue and the tumor, so they can more accurately administer the radiation doses.More specifically, Yan will integrate SBRT with a temporal enhanced ultrasound method (TeUS) that he previously developed through a collaboration with the University of British Columbia, Queens University and NIH. TeUS combines a series of ultrasound images, over time, so that researchers and doctors can visually separate the tumor from the healthy organ.“The tumor and the healthy tissue move a little differently. By observing that area over time, we extract a difference,” he said.Deep-learning techniques employed by Yan’s team will make this technique possible.“We could obtain these images in the past, but didn’t have a good tool to analyze those images. With deep learning, with artificial intelligence, we are now able to decode the information and make it usable,” Yan said.This research is a prime example of the work being done by Yan and other members of the Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies (CBIS) at Rensselaer. Yan is also part of a Cancer Research Group within the center.Yan also recently received a Bench-to-Bedside award grant, also from NIH, to focus on improving cancer detection through ultrasound imaging. He hopes the results of these collaborative, interdisciplinary projects will improve treatment for all patients.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Pediatric Imaging | August 14, 2019 Ultrasound Guidance Improves First-attempt Success in IV Access in Children August 14, 2019 – Children’s veins read more Technology | Interventional Radiology | August 16, 2019 Profound Medical Receives U.S. FDA 510(k) Clearance for Tulsa-Pro Profound Medical Corp. announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to… read more Following radiation, the bone marrow shows nearly complete loss of blood cells in mice (left).

That’s why we are proposing three types of actions: verbal sanctions, written sanctions and then mandatory psychological treatment for both the aggressor and the victim,” Alvarado said during a public presentation of the bill at the Legislative Assembly on Thursday evening.Humberto Vargas said the Education Ministry (MEP) would be responsible for hiring specialized professionals for psychological treatment at public schools.According to MEP, so far this year more than 100 bullying complaints have been reported at schools across the country. The figure was disclosed earlier this week by health experts participating in the National Health Congress. Psychiatrist Virginia Rosabal said Monday at the congress that Costa Rica has registered 21 suicides attributed to bullying in the last five years.The bill now will be evaluated by the Assembly’s Technical Department and then will be sent for discussion in the Children and Adolescents Issues Commission.

first_img 5 things to look for when selecting an ophthalmologist Comments   Share   Many economists have worried that the eurozone may be about to suffer a debilitating bout of deflation, which Japan has experienced for the best part of two decades. Falling prices can hurt an economy as consumers postpone spending in the hope of getting cheaper deals in the future while businesses fail to innovate and invest.Lagarde said the IMF thinks there’s 15 to 20 percent chance that the eurozone may suffer deflation.“The risk is that longer term expectations are anchored at a much lower level that it is currently associated with,” Lagarde said.Getting out of a deflationary spiral can be hugely difficult. Japan is now undertaking a major policy experiment _ dubbed “Abenomics” after Prime Minister Shinzo Abe _ involving a massive monetary stimulus, more government spending and big structural reforms. The hope is to get inflation up at 2 percent.The country’s finance minister, Haruhiko Kuroda, said the early signs were positive and he voiced some optimism over the country’s growth.“We are only half way,” he said. “There’s still a long way to go.”(Copyright 2014 The Associated Press.

Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility 5 ways to recognize low testosterone DAVOS, Switzerland (AP) – The International Monetary Fund’s managing director warned Saturday of the risks posed to global economic recovery from the reduction of the U.S. Federal Reserve’s monetary stimulus and falling prices in the eurozone.Despite growing evidence the global economy is faring better than it has for years, Christine Lagarde said policymakers around the world have to be alert to the potential repercussions from the Fed’s “tapering,” a policy change it decided to embark upon in December. Top Stories So far, the move has been minimal _ it has reduced the amount of bonds it buys each month by $10 billion to $75 billion _ but many economists think that it could end this year if the U.S. economic recovery gains steam.Over the past few years, the Fed’s stimulus, in its various guises has had a big impact on financial markets. As well as shoring up stock markets around the world, the new money created by the stimulus has flown to emerging economies as investors sought out better returns. Currencies, such as the Indian rupee and the Brazilian real, have been beneficiaries. The withdrawal could prompt a reverse in those flows and see their currencies come under pressure.“This is a new risk on the horizon and really needs to be watched,” Lagarde said in a discussion about the global economic outlook at the World Economic Forum.Though the shockwaves that have hit Argentina this week weren’t specifically about tapering, the turmoil the country’s currency experienced _ it fell by nearly 15 percent on Thursday alone _ was felt throughout the world, prompting stock markets to post broad-based declines.Lagarde also cautioned about the outlook for the 18-country eurozone. Though the eurozone has emerged from its longest-ever recession and many of the bailed-out countries appear headed for modest growth, inflation has fallen sharply. At last count, it was down at 0.8 percent in the year to December, way below the European Central Bank’s target to keep price rises just below 2 percent.
