How about LSIs with no PhilHealth? It has Faster release of COVID test results pushed Qualimed’s molecular laboratory can release test results in 24 to 48 hours. advised LSIs to undergo reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test at Qualimed Hospital in Mandurriao, Iloilo City. The WVMC laboratory processes an average of 800 specimens a day. Qualimed has a newly-opened molecular laboratory capable of performing RT-PCR test – a welcome addition to the Western Visayas Medical Center (WVMC) sub-national laboratory which is slow in releasing test results due to the sheer number of specimens it has to analyze from all over Panay and Guimaras islands. ILOILO – The provincial government is seeking a faster release of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) test results of locally stranded individuals (LSIs). A faster release of test results would lead to faster action on the part of concerned local government units in case an LSI is found to be positive for SARS CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, said Trabado. According to Dr. Grace Patricia Trabado, head of the Provincial Health Office, LSIs may use their PhilHealth insurance for the RT-PCR test at Qualimed. “Also, mapagwa dayun sa quarantine facility ang LSIs nga negative. Ma-decongest ang mga beds and rooms to accommodate those nga positive. Gina-anticipate naton more LSIs are returning to Iloilo,” added Trabado. “Ang gin-instruct ni Governor(Arthur Defensor Jr.) for LSIs with PhilHealth, puede sila PCR testing in the private hospital and laboratory bangod makabulig mangin madasig ang paggwa sang result,” said Trabado. Trabado said their RT-PCR test would be conducted for free at the WVMC sub-national laboratory but they have to wait longer for the result, and that means they have to stay longer in quarantine facilities./PN

9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… Tags:#music#news#web 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App The BBC reports this morning that record label Warner Music has announced it will no longer license its music to free streaming sites like Last.fm, Spotify or Pandora.The news comes on the heels of an announcement yesterday by Warner Music that digital revenue, at $184 million, accounts for 20% of total revenue.The BBC quotes Warner chief executive Edgar Bronfman Jr as saying that “free streaming services are clearly not net positive for the industry and as far as Warner Music is concerned will not be licensed. In January, we wrote about a report by analyst firm Forrester that predicted that music industry revenues would continue their slide before evening out in 2013, with digital music sales taking up most of the slack.“On a constant-currency basis, digital revenue grew 4% sequentially and was up 5% from the prior-year quarter,” reads yesterday’s report from Warner.The BBC doesn’t say when or how this will affect the average person, but when our favorite artists start disappearing from streaming music sites, we’ll surely notice.Update:We got in touch with Tom Conrad, the CTO of Pandora, who had this to say regarding the effect this would have on the company. He writes:This all started with Edgar Bronfman’s comment on the Warner conference call where he was addressing free on-demand services such as Spotify that are directly licensed. Pandora operates under a different licensing structure and won’t be impacted by Warner’s apparent decision with respect to free, on-demand services. 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout mike melanson Related Posts 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…

Assuming the world will have both iOS and Android, OpenFeint will remain interesting to developers and users as the only multi-playform SDK and community.”OpenFeint also closed a $4 million investment from The9, an Chinese online game company, this week. Previous investment included last October’s investment by Japan’s DeNA. AuroraFeint‘s OpenFeint was a pioneering platform for providing developers with the tools to create social gaming options on the iPhone. Then Apple decided to create its own Game Center. Then, as now, the company’s insists its still playing nice with Apple. But the fact is, OpenFeint has decided to take its 9,200 developers and over 2,200 games over to Android. “To date, Google has only made small gains in gaming with the acquisition of AdScape in 2007 and the launch of flash games thanks to a partnership with Mochi Media in 2008. OpenFeint for Android will provide more than just an SDK code but a new game discovery and payment solution.”Coming along for the ride are game publishers Astraware, Digital Chocolate, Glu Mobile and Hudson Soft, as well as indie studios like Distinct Dev, ustwo, Pik Pok and RocketCat Games.Certainly the OpenFeint developer community, whose efforts on the iOS have attracted 28 million users, is a long stride forward. What If? The question seems obvious, however. If OpenFeint proves instrumental in making Androids a power in mobile gaming, will Google decide it should have its own official mobile game development kit, just like Apple?

DeSean Jackson, one of the most explosive receivers in the NFL, was released by the Philadelphia Eagles, a stunning move that is about more than football.According to ESPN, the Eagles cut ties with one of the most electrifying players in club history. This comes after they uncovered their own information on Jackson’s off-field connections and activities. In addition, they decided to release Jackson, rather than trade him to another team that might be unaware.“After careful consideration over this offseason, the Philadelphia Eagles have decided to part ways with DeSean Jackson. The team informed him of his release today,” the team said in a statement.Earlier Friday, a report by NJ.com stated the Eagles had become increasingly concerned about Jackson’s off-the-field issues and his reputed ties to Los Angeles street gang members.NFL teams have become more cautious since last summer when former New England Patriots Aaron Hernandez, who also reportedly had gang ties, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder.Jackson was due to make $10.5 million in 2014 and was owed $30.5 million over the remainder of his deal, but none of that money was guaranteed.Recent reports surfaced that the Eagles were looking to trade Jackson. There also had been rumors that Jackson was not a fit in the locker room culture that coach Chip Kelly was trying to cultivate.At the NFL owners meetings on Wednesday, Kelly said he liked Jackson, but would not commit to him for 2014, saying the Eagles would do “what’s best for the football team.”There may have been warning signs earlier this season that the Eagles may have been looking to move on from Jackson. The team moved quickly in free agency to get new deals done with wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper.Jackson, 27, excelled in Kelly’s fast-paced offense, setting career highs in receptions (82) and yards (1,332), while also amassing nine touchdowns. His 6,177 receiving yards are second in franchise history and his four punt-return scores are tops in club history.
