Not got proposal on free metro ride for women Puri

first_imgNew Delhi: Minister of Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep S. Puri on Thursday said that he has not received any proposal from the Delhi government to provide free rides to women on buses and metro. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal earlier this week had announced free rides for women on buses and metro. Taking a dig at Kejriwal, Puri said: “You can’t announce a scheme first and then prepare a proposal.” Puri added that the Delhi government has a budget of Rs 50,000 crore, which it has not used on the Centre’s Swacchh Bharat scheme or the Ayushman Bharat scheme but wants to give Rs 2,500 subsidy for free rides. “The Supreme Court has mandated 11,000 buses in the national capital, how many buses are there today? I have said in the Parliament that we should provide facility for the elderly and the students on the metro and Delhi Metro Rail Corporation is working on a technology for the same,” he added.last_img read more

Benkirane to Education Minister I Am the One the King Appointed

Rabat – Benkirane took his Education Minister Rachiad Belmokhtar by surprise on Tuesday when he told him that he should focus rather on less controversial issues and work to fix the issues that teachers and educational professionals call for.“Forget your project of teaching science subjects in French and focus on the moralization of the sector. It’s me the one that His Majesty the King appointed Head of Government, if the king wanted to appoint Belmokhtar, he would have done so. He knows you before me,” Benkirane said before the upper chamber of the parliament on Tuesday.To the bemusement of the Minister of Education, Benkirane made the decision live on TV to put on hold Belmokhtar’s controversial decision to use French as medium of teaching science subjects in Moroccan high schools. Benkirane went on to say that he sent a letter to the Education Minister and asked him to put that measure on hold, adding that he was not aware of it.The decision to adopt French in teaching science subjects, which was adopted last month, created an uproar across Morocco with education professionals labeling it “an anticipated move,” that did not take into account the multiples calls made by other members of the government to make English the language of instruction of these subjects.Earlier this year, Benkirane stated that English should become the primary language of education in Morocco because “it is the language of today’s science, technology and commerce.” read more

NOAC says no dispute with India

The National Ocean Affairs Committee, (NOAC) says Sri Lanka is not in dispute with India to refer any matter pertaining to the oceans to ITLOS, which is a body set up within the UN for resolution of disputes.Chris Dharmakirti, Chairman of the National Ocean Affairs Committee, said that at the present moment, only Bangladesh, Myanmar and India have declared disputes in the Bay of Bengal basin, and the resolution of those disputes have been brought before the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS), and Sri Lanka is not a party cited in those disputes. According to Dharmakirti, Sri Lanka does have an overlapping claim in the Bay of Bengal with India and Myanmar, but that is not in dispute at the present time. “We have filed our claim before the UN Commission that is set up to examine Continental Shelf Margin claims, which is entirely a different and separate body to ITLOS. It is called the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS). All three nations have filed their claims separately with the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS) set up under UNCLOS, which is a different UN body to ITLOS,” he explained. He further clarified that the CLCS under UNCLOS, is a dedicated Commission comprised of ocean scientists and geo science experts nominated by States parties to the UN Law of the Sea Convention, who are required to examine each coastal nation’s claim and determine them. Whilst ITLOS is a body comprised of legal experts on the law of the sea, whose role an task is to interpret the UNCLOS convention and other international maritime treaty provisions including customary international law when a dispute arises.“Whilst UNCLOS determines the scientific acceptability of the extended continental shelf area as determined by each coastal state using seismic and bathymetric data, ITLOS is a dispute settlement mechanism, that only comes into the picture, when a two or more states have a dispute,” he further explained. Although Sri Lanka and India did at a very early stage, seven years ago, at a track two discussion did contemplate a joint submission to the Commission (UNCLOS) using the statement of understanding provisions in Annex 11 of the convention, for the overlapping areas, the decision to file separate claims, independently, has not prejudiced either party, and has been done with both India and Sri Lanka issuing separate note verbales to the UN stating that both countries are filing their claims without prejudice or objections to the other.“We have a very good understanding on this with India, and in fact in 2009, after both our countries filed our separate submissions to UNCLOS, we got together in New York to jointly draft and submit a special resolution calling upon the UN Secretary General to allocate more resources to the Commission and to take steps to expedite the submission hearings and process,” Dharmakirti explained.As a direct result of that joint initiative which also had the support of Japan, China, Brazil, EU and even the US delegates at the UN, in 2012, the UN secretary general did allocate more financial resources and expedited the UN Commission on the Law of the Sea sittings from six weeks each year to 26 weeks, a 400% improvement in the processing time of the claims made by each coastal state. “India is behind us in the queue, and we are slotted as the 43rd country in that long line of nations awaiting the examination of our submission by the UN Commission, and although previously both India and us would have had our claims only heard in 2028, with the expedited process,we could hopefully have ours examined as early as 2018,” the Chairman elaborated. In addition to India, Myanmar and Bangladesh, the Maldives Islands also have an overlapping seabed area with Sri Lanka. According to Mr. Dharmakirti, it is the policy of the Government of Sri Lanka to explore the cooperative mechanisms to handle the shared, overlapping areas of claims in the seabed. “There are enough examples from around the world for Sri Lanka and her neighboring coastal states in the Bay of Bengal to put in place a Joint Ownership Commission or a Shared Resource Development mechanism to handle the valuable mineral and hydro carbon resources that the nations in the region are destined to own jointly, ” Dharmakirti pointed out.“We have to first get our claim for the extended continental shelf validated and recognized by the UN CLCS first, before we progress next to the next stage of contemplating how we would work out the sharing mechanisms, or indeed, if no agreement is reached, dispute resolution options, ” he concluded.

Why Did Vidyos Bubble Burst

1. Failure to see market trends. Vidyo came to market with stunning, crystal clear video conferencing. I recall its first booth at Enterprise Connect; it had video of all kinds on display. Mobile phones, tablets, big screens, computers, laptops… whatever device in use, Vidyo delivered scintillating video of unparalleled quality. Its competitive advantage was its codec. That was fine for its initial go-to-market entry, but keeping its edge turned next to impossible — competitors catch up on quality, as they all did in this case. Many Vidyo insiders wanted to head down the cloud path or even into Vidyo rooms, but management thwarted any attempt to divert away from the codec, my sources told me. I was one customer of vidyo from china, and used their APIs to develop productions four years ago.Frankly, their technology is amazing, but service is awful. It is a little hard to communicate with their people. It would take very long time to receive their feedback and fix for issues. Time costs is very high. And we gived up cooperation with them hereafter.Anyway, I am still shocked by their purchase price, far below matched their technology. Originally had a chance for them to become one awsome company.It is a pity. Log in or register to post comments Industry watchers shouldn’t have been surprised by the acquisition, given rumors that the company had been struggling. But the purchase price, a paltry $40 million, was a shock — that’s only two-thirds of Vidyo’s annual revenue of $60 million. Video Communication Must Improve, Even as It Hits Its Stride Michael Helmbrecht September 12, 2019 Video conferencing at work has boomed. Now we need to fully deliver on its promise. bubble-poof.png 3 Problems Still Facing Voice Services Alexey Aylarov September 04, 2019 Interconnectivity, teleconference audio quality, and robocalling issues are still impacting voice services. Comments So how did this happen? It’s worth noting that except for Pexip and Polycom (now part of Plantronics, renamed Poly), all other independent video infrastructure providers,are gone or have exited the business. Pexip’s unique distributed architecture gives it better than a puncher’s chance of being around for the long haul. Polycom is currently the number two infrastructure vendor but has adjusted its strategy to interoperate with cloud providers. 4. Inability to find a second market. On-premises video made Vidyo famous. When that market started to slow down, so too did Vidyo’s business. The company chose to go down the route of re-architecting the platform for healthcare. Part of this was driven by the favorable regulatory changes that make it easier for healthcare facilities to get paid by insurance companies when conducting appointments over video. The idea was a good one, but the execution was poor and the company continued to stumble. More recently the company launched its own video platform as a service (VPaaS), but that failed to take off. While the company has issued a number of press releases involving healthcare facilities and API successes, the valuation doesn’t support success in any area. One source estimated that about half of Vidyo’s revenue comes from the licensing of its patents on technologies such as H.265 and H.264. 2. Difficult to work with. There’s not a single person I talked to who didn’t echo the sentiment that working with Vidyo was very difficult. If video is ever going to be “just like making a phone call,” it’s going to require all the vendors playing nice in the same sandbox, and that wasn’t Vidyo’s modus operandi. Multiple people told me their companies tried to partner with Vidyo and were basically told it was its way or no way. Also, Vidyo often made it prohibitively expensive to license its technology. Companies need to realize that often being open and willing to work with others creates a rising tide that’s good for users, which in turn is good for the industry. How did a company that had so much promise in a rising market get sold in what amounts to a fire sale? Since it was founded, Vidyo had raised more than $170 million in funding — and about five years ago had a massive coming-out party at Enterprise Connect. Cisco bought one of its rivals, Acano, in 2015 for $700 million, and it seemed Vidyo was fast-tracking to be one of the major video software providers. See All in Video Collaboration & A/V » The video market has matured, and it’s easier than ever to deliver high-quality video conferencing. These trends are driving consolidation and making it easier for new vendors to rise. Zoom Communications appeared out of nowhere, and following its IPO last month now has a valuation of more than $20 billion (although that’s likely to come down). Next on my watchlist for acquisition is BlueJeans, in the next year or so, as the consolidation continues… but that’s a story for different day.Tags:News & Viewsvideo conferencingM&AVidyoVPaaSEnghouse SystemsVideo Collaboration & A/VEnterprise ConnectIndustry NewsNews & ViewsTechnology TrendsVendor News Articles You Might Like What’s Up in AV? 4 Trends to Watch Jimmy Vaughan August 02, 2019 A look at some of the problem-solving solutions I saw at the recent InfoComm 2019 event. Since the acquisition, I’ve talked to a number of industry insiders, including partners, competitors, and former Vidyo employees. Based on what I’ve gleaned from those conversations, here are four issues I believe contributed to this burgeoning unicorn turning into a pumpkin: If Vidyo had shown sustained success in either area, and particularly with VPaaS, the valuation would have been significantly higher. Consider that Twilio is currently trading at about 26 times revenue, and you could extrapolate that $2 million in VPaaS revenue would have exceeded the $40 million purchase price at the same valuation. The rise and fall of a company is something that’s happened before and is likely to happen again. It’s a good reminder to all small companies to not get so in love with a single product or idea and always be willing to disrupt yourself before someone else does. As for customers, the acquisition by Enghouse should end up being good for them as the company can probably use Vidyo’s technology in other products and put more money into R&D. Log in or register to post comments 3. Overvalued itself. Over the years, Vidyo has had many suitors. Rumor has it that around the time of the Cisco-Acano deal Vidyo had been offered up almost $1 billion, but it opted not to sell. The executive team apparently pushed for more than $1 billion, and couldn’t get the buyer to strike the deal. I know over the years that Vidyo has entertained other offers, as well — for much more than the $40 million the company got from Enghouse Systems. Here’s where ego gets in the way of understanding what a fair deal is. It appears that eventually all the possible suitors fell away, and Enghouse got a sweet deal at $40 million. Meetings Made Easy: One Video Platform or More Beth Schultz September 09, 2019 Standardizing on a single platform or enabling platform-agnostic collaboration are two ways to go about reducing friction in the meeting room. Don’t Get Ripped Off with Video Conferencing Pricing Chris Heinemann July 30, 2019 Financially, the cost of video conferencing isn’t just high, it’s unpredictable. It’s time for a different approach.

More people than ever have hearing loss that can be improved or

“Current production of hearing aids meets less than 10 per cent of global need,” WHO’s Shelly Chadha of the Department of Prevention of Blindness and Deafness said in a news release issued ahead of International Ear Care Day. Marked annually on 3 March, the Day aims to raise awareness and promotes community-based activities for ear and hearing health.As the population ages globally, more people than ever before face hearing loss. One in every three people over the age of 65 – a total of 165 million people worldwide – lives with hearing loss, according to WHO.Another 32 million people affected by hearing loss are children under the age of 15. Many of whom live in low- and middle-income countries – particularly in South Asia, Asia and the Pacific and sub-Saharan Africa – where untreated ear infections lead to hearing loss.“About half of all cases of hearing loss are easily preventable while many can be treated through early diagnosis and suitable interventions such as surgically-implanted hearing devices,” Ms. Chadha said. WHO encourages countries to develop programmes for preventing hearing loss within their primary health care systems, including vaccinating children against measles, meningitis, mumps and rubella; screening and treating syphilis in pregnant women; and early assessment and management of hearing loss in babies. According to the figures released today, fewer than one out of 40 people who need a hearing aid in developing countries have one. WHO said it is exploring technology transfer as a way to promote access to hearing aids in those places. The agency also cited sign language training and social support as beneficial for people with disabling hearing loss. read more

Top official calls on Iran DPR Korea to cooperate with UN atomic

The Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Yukiya Amano, said the Agency remains committed to working with the two countries on nuclear verification activities, and urged the Governments to fulfil their obligations.“The DPRK’s statements concerning a third nuclear test and its intention to restart its nuclear facilities at Yongbyon, together with its previous statements about uranium enrichment activities and the construction of a light water reactor, are deeply regrettable,” said Mr. Amano, in his introductory statement to the Agency’s annual General Conference in Vienna, which brings together representatives from the IAEA’s 155 member States.“Such actions are clear violations of relevant UN Security Council resolutions.”Mr. Amano noted that the IAEA has been unable to carry out verification activities in the DPRK since 2009, which has limited the Agency’s knowledge of the country’s nuclear programme.“I call upon the DPRK to comply fully with its obligations under relevant Security Council resolutions, to cooperate promptly with the Agency in implementing its Safeguards Agreement and to resolve all outstanding issues,” he said.Turning to Iran, Mr. Amano said the Middle Eastern country is not providing the necessary cooperation to enable us to provide credible assurance about the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities, adding that “the Agency therefore cannot conclude that all nuclear material in Iran is in peaceful activities.”Iran’s nuclear programme – which its officials have stated is for peaceful purposes, but some other countries contend is driven by military ambitions – has been a matter of international concern since the discovery in 2003 that the country had concealed its nuclear activities for 18 years in breach of its obligations under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).A round of talks on the issue is planned for 27 September in Vienna, and the Board of Governors has stressed that it is essential for Iran to immediately conclude and implement the structured approach. Mr. Amano added that the IAEA is committed to working with Iran’s new Government to resolve outstanding issues by diplomatic means.Given the nature and extent of credible information available to the Agency about possible military dimensions to Iran’s nuclear programme, Mr. Amano said: “It remains essential and urgent for Iran to engage with us on the substance of our concerns.” He also reiterated that Agency’s request that Iran, without further delay, provide substantive answers to its detailed questions regarding the location within the Parchin site and the foreign expert, and provide access to the location concerned.“I continue to urge Iran to fully implement its Safeguards Agreement and its other obligations and to engage with the Agency to achieve concrete results on all outstanding substantive issues,” he said. In his remarks, Mr. Amano also reported on the progress made in the implementation of the IAEA Action Plan on Nuclear Safety, which was endorsed in the aftermath of the accident at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station in 2011.“Recent events in Japan are a clear reminder of the continuing impact of the Fukushima Daiichi accident. The leak of contaminated water at Fukushima Daiichi is a matter of high priority that needs to be addressed urgently,” he said. “Recognizing the importance of this issue, the IAEA international peer review mission to Japan in April recommended that Japan establish an effective plan and mechanisms for the long-term management of liquid waste. The announcement by the Japanese Government of a basic policy for addressing this issue is an important step forward.”Mr. Amano added that the IAEA remains ready to assist Japan and will send a second international peer review mission in the next months to offer further advice. read more

Base metals Are everhigher prices supported by the fundamentals

first_imgNatixis Commodity Markets notes “in early February, the copper price finally breached $10,000/t, while tin is in excess of $30,000/t. Even the base metals where there has been less obvious fundamental support are posting strong gains. Despite the potential for a surge in nickel supply in 2011 and 2012, the price is well in excess of $25,000/t, while aluminium prices have pushed above $2,500/t, despite LME stocks well in excess of 4 Mt.”Therefore the key question facing the market is whether base metal prices can continue to rally after their stellar performance in recent months. In general, Natixis Commodity Markets believes that the answer to this question is “yes,” but the risks for some base metals are becoming increasingly skewed to the downside, with the prospect of a potential near-term (if relatively short-lived) correction in prices becoming increasingly likely.Aluminium – “Under our base case projections, we expect the market to revert to a small deficit position in 2011, with a shortfall expected in 2012 as well. This will be encouraged by a more balanced supply-demand picture in China. We forecast an average annual price of $2,625/t in 2011, compared to last year’s outturn of $2,173/t. For 2012, prices could rise to an average of $2,700/t.Copper – “Global copper supplies will remain tight as output will struggle to keep up with the pace of demand. Nevertheless, we do not share the views of many in the market that project a deficit of upwards of 400,000 t this year. For us, a combination of higher substitution and other measures to improve efficiency will cap demand growth for copper at around 5%. Against this, although new mine supply might remain broadly flat, increased scrap supply should leave a global deficit of around 150,000 t. We are also struck by the sharply divergent messages coming from higher copper prices but also higher copper TC/RCs, the latter suggesting a more ample supply of concentrates. Although the path of least resistance may currently be toward higher prices, there is greater scope for disappointment if copper’s fundamentals prove to be less bullet-proof than the market currently imagines. With prices above $10,000/t, our base case scenario therefore anticipates a near-term correction before copper prices resume their upward trend. This should allow copper prices to cling on to most of their recent gains, supporting average annual copper prices of around $9,000/t in 2011, followed by $9,500/t in 2012.Lead – “Despite there being no immediate shortage of lead at present in the global market, our medium-term outlook is positive, based upon the rapid expansion of global car fleets thanks to the rise in automobile demand among developing countries. As such, we expect the lead market will begin to tighten over the forecast period. We expect the market will experience two consecutive years of deficit in 2011 and 2012, of 63,000 t and 168,000 t respectively, which should support average prices of $2,650/t this year and $2,900/t next year.Nickel – “In some respects, the nickel market stands out among the base metals in that there is a significant amount of additional supply in the pipeline. Given the restart at Vale’s Sudbury operation and, soon, Voisey’s Bay, combined with additional output expected from a number of ferro-nickel operations, notably Onca Puma and Barro Alto, output should rise sharply this year. 2012 should again be dominated by the supply-side, as the much anticipated HPAL projects (Goro, Ambatovy and Ramu) gradually ramp up to full production. Taking these longer-term fundamentals into consideration, we are forecasting an average price in 2011 of $24,500/t, followed by $24,000/t in 2012, compared with current prices at over $28,000/t.Tin – “The exceptional surge in tin prices in recent months leaves the market vulnerable to a correction. However, the positive underlying supply-demand balance fundamentals suggest that the path of least resistance in the short-term remains upwards. We believe that the structural tightness of tin supply will, by and large, remain in place over the next two years.“Our projected 2011 average price of $29,000/t represents a 42% year-on-year increase and is over 80% higher than the level seen at the start of 2010. That this price is below the current spot price reflects our concern that tin prices might be particularly vulnerable to any economic setbacks, given the market’s high burden of expectations. Thereafter, we expect prices to rise to an average of $30,000/t over 2012 as the market remains in deficit.Zinc – “Over the longer term, we believe that the outlook for zinc remains positive, as strong demand from the BRICs drives the global total. We expect the zinc market will post a second consecutive year of deficit in 2012, of 160,000 t, as production growth slows in line with the progressive demise of the huge Brunswick mine. In common with a number of other base metals, we forecast strong gains in average annual prices, but limited gains from the levels already experienced in early 2011. We see average annual prices rising to $2,525/t and $2,750/t respectively over the next two years.last_img read more

Caféine un besoin dorigine génétique

first_imgCaféine : un besoin d’origine génétique ?Une recherche américaine publiée dans le journal PLoS Genetics révèle que le besoin de consommer du café aurait, chez certaines personnes, une origine génétique.    Des scientifiques américains ont étudié l’ADN de 40.000 personnes à la recherche de liens entre celui-ci et les besoins en caféine. Ils ont ainsi repéré deux séquences génétiques qui seraient associées aux besoins de consommation de café, de thé, de chocolat, de sodas ou d’autres sources de caféine. Un des auteurs de l’étude, le docteur Neil Caporaso, de l’Institut National du Cancer dans le Maryland, explique en effet que : “Pour la première fois, nous savons que des gènes spécifiques influencent la quantité de caféine que consomment les individus”. Des variations génétiques qui amèneraient les gens à consommer environ 40 milligrammes de caféine en plus, l’équivalent d’un tiers d’une tasse de café ou d’une canette de Coca-Cola, a indiqué le scientifique à la BBC.  À lire aussiL’axolotl, cet étonnant animal capable de se régénérer, révèle ses secretsDans les séquences identifiées, deux gènes en particulier seraient impliqués dans la nécessité de consommer du café. Le premier gène (CYP1A2) avait déjà été repéré comme jouant un rôle dans la dégradation de la caféine. Encore inconnu, le second (AHR) permettrait en fait de réguler la fonction du premier. Jusqu’ici les études avaient essentiellement portées sur la recherche de facteurs environnementaux, mais il semblerait donc que ce soit au niveau génétique que se trouve l’explication de ce besoin, variable en fonction des individus. De même, de nombreux gènes seraient impliqués dans les préférences alimentaires mais les scientifiques n’en connaissent que “très peu” pour l’instant comme l’a souligné le Dr Caporaso. Le 17 avril 2011 à 18:56 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

iPhone 8 Wireless Charging Tests Are Underway

first_imgIt says a lot that the biggest talking point surrounding the release of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus was the lack of a headphone jack. There wasn’t that much else to talk about beyond the two cameras included on the back of the 7 Plus. So it’s expected that the iPhone 8 will bring with it some major upgrades to grab our attention and getting us buying iPhones again.One of those upgrades is thought to be a shift to using an OLED panel for the display of both models, but now there’s another big change being rumored. Apple wants the iPhone 8 to use wireless charging.Foxconn is apparently carrying out testing on wireless charging modules right now in an attempt to hit an acceptable yield rate. The yield rate is how many fully working modules are produced per batch. Too low and production becomes too expensive to make it viable, but you also have to consider that the iPhone 8 won’t arrive until September 2017 meaning Foxconn has plenty of time to get the yield rate where it needs to be.Wireless charging is a convenience feature. Not having to plug your smartphone in every time it needs some juice is welcome, however, it does require extra components be squeezed inside that every thinning iPhone case. Apple must really believe wireless charging is highly desirable to consider its inclusion.Apple may also be thinking to the future, though. The removal of the headphone jack was met with a lot of anger and frustration, but that seems to be subsiding and sales continue. So why not also think about removing the Lightning port?With wireless charging in place and wireless audio well supported, removing the last port on the iPhone becomes viable. It won’t happen on the iPhone 8, but it must be a question Apple is asking internally.last_img read more

Why should her bad choice in vehicles be anyone’s responsibility but her owns? Accidents happen all the time. That’s the risk we all take when we enter a vehicle.

This HighTech Wristband Can Detect Opioid Overdoses

first_img Amazon’s New Facial Recognition Smells Your FearSnapchat’s New Snap Spectacles Will Have Two Cameras, Cost $350 Stay on target Opioid overdoses are a major health issue in the U.S., yet a new high-tech wristband might help doctors detect the warning signs of fatal painkiller reactions.A group of Carnegie Mellon University students developed the HopeBand, a wearable wristband that can sound an alarm, flash repeatedly, and issue a text message alert with the wearer’s location if it senses really low blood oxygen levels, IEEE reported. With this high-tech wristband, a health care professional can administer a medication to reverse the overdose before it’s too late.“Imagine having a friend who is always watching for signs of overdose; someone who understands your usage pattern and knows when to contact [someone] for help and make sure you get help,” Rashmi Kalkunte, a software engineering student at Carnegie Mellon University, told IEEE. “That’s what the HopeBand is designed to do.”AdChoices广告Unlike other medical devices, the Carnegie Mellon University students’ HopeBand is an inexpensive wearable device to track people’s health on the go. With a sponsorship from Pinney Associates, a pharmaceutical consulting firm, the students moved forward with a watch-style solution that leverages pulse oximetry as an overdose detector.Pulse oximetry sensors track oxygen levels in the blood with a very high-tech process. They shine LED light through the skin and then detect light absorption changes. If oxygen levels are low due to a potential overdose, HopeBand evaluates the warning sign for 10 seconds before sounding an alarm.Even though the HopeBand could be promising for overdoses, the team still has to validate whether the device can detect warning signs on real people. Despite this challenge, the team has used simulated inputs to put HopeBand to the test, and the results have been positive.Following testing, the team plans to distribute free HopeBands to opioid users via local needle exchange programs. If this distribution step is successful, the team could begin selling a commercialized version of the HopeBand between $16 and $20 in the future.More on Geek.com:Instagram Accidentally Released a Horizontal Scrolling FeaturePhony Alexa ‘Setup’ App Is Topping Apple’s App Store ChartsTeen Charged For Selling Sock Disguised as iPhonelast_img read more

No Guarantees LeBron and Anthony Davis are a Great Fit Together

first_imgEver since news broke that Anthony Davis will not re-sign with the Pelicans and wants to be traded, NBA fans and media are already fantasizing about him pairing up with LeBron. They also think the Lakers should give up whatever it takes to get The Brow to L.A.Colin thinks Davis is an amazing talent, but isn’t sure Davis and LeBron would be a great match, given James’ history turning big men like Kevin Love and Chris Bosh into shells of themselves, and Davis’ inability to stay healthy throughout his career. Davis has also only won one playoff series in now his seventh year in the league.Even if the Lakers to do make the deal, Colin doesn’t think the they should give up all of their assets to get him like fans are prepared to do. Maybe LeBron and Davis do end up working out, but saying the deal puts them on the Warriors’ level is fanboy talk.last_img read more

How good is CCleaner Professionals new Software Updater

first_imgHow good is CCleaner Professional’s new Software Updater? by Martin Brinkmann on March 14, 2019 in Software – Last Update: March 14, 2019 – 34 commentsThe most recent version of CCleaner Professional comes with a new Software Updater tool designed to inform the user about outdated program installations.Software updates are a complicated thing on Windows as there is no central repository available. Some programs come with custom build updating routines, others come without them.Keeping software up to date is essential (most of the time) as updates may patch security vulnerabilities, incompatibilities, and other issues.Programs that scan for outdated programs on Windows are anything but new. Programs like SUMO or UpdateStar have been around for over a decade. Developers of security solutions, for example Avira and Kaspersky, introduced options to check for software updates as well.CCleaner Software UpdaterPiriform, an Avast company, introduced the Software Updater in version 5.55 of the application released in March 2019. The tool is included in the Professional version of CCleaner only at this point in time.You may access it with a click on Tools > Software Updater after you have made sure that you run at least CCleaner Professional 5.55.The application lists outdated programs in its interface when you select the tool. It lists the program name, size, the installed version and the new version that is available.The Software Updater detected fewer out of date programs than comparable software updaters such as Sumo. CCleaner Professional detected 18 programs with updates, Sumo 35.Note: The tool may hang if you hit the “update all” button without selecting at least one program first.What you can do currentlyThe only options provided at the time are to select programs and to update the selection. There is no option to visit the developer website to find out more about an update, nor are there options to ignore updates or minor updates, include beta versions, or uninstall a program.The updating happens in CCleaner; that is comfortable and probably preferred by the majority of users (Sumo redirects to its own website from where you may download the updates).CCleaner Professional does not indicate from where the updates are downloaded, however. It would be great if the program would indicate that to the user.CCleaner downloads the installer and runs it automatically. It is still necessary to complete the installation manually at this point; silent installations don’t seem to be supported.The application displays a “completed” message in the end and buttons to restart the PC or ignore the restart option for the moment.Closing WordsCCleaner Professional’s software updater is a useful but limited tool. The Software Updater makes it easy to update software that CCleaner has in its database. The database of supported applications could be larger though, and it would certainly benefit from improved functionality on top of that.No false positives were detected during tests; this worked properly.Now You: Do you use Software Updaters? If so which? If not, why not?SummaryArticle NameHow good is CCleaner Professional’s new Software Updater?DescriptionThe most recent version of CCleaner Professional comes with a new Software Updater tool designed to inform the user about outdated program installations.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
