Samsung eyes Galaxy Note 10 launch on Aug 7 in New York

first_imgSamsung’s successor to last year’s Note 9 will debut Aug. 7 in New York.  Sarah Tew/CNET Samsung will show off its Galaxy Note 10 during a flashy Unpacked event on Aug. 7 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, according to people familiar with Samsung’s plans. The venue is the same place the South Korean technology giant launched the Note 9 last year.   Now playing: Watch this: Samsung, LG, Motorola: How soon can we expect 5G phones?

Tagscenter_img Samsung See also The Note 10 launch comes as Samsung and its rivals face a slower smartphone market. Prices for the latest devices are increasing, but features aren’t changing dramatically from generation to generation. That means we’re holding onto our phones longer than before. The hope is 5G and new designs like foldable phones could revitalize the smartphone industry. Samsung’s answer to the mobile malaise has been the Galaxy Fold, a phone that expands into a tablet. The $1,980 device, the first major smartphone to incorporate a foldable display, has faced hiccups since its announcement. Samsung initially planned to launch the phone April 26, but it delayed the Fold when the screens on some reviewers’ test phones broke. It hasn’t set a new sales date or explained what went wrong with some of the displays. 4:56 Samsung hits the brakes on Galaxy Fold release 13 Photos Since the launch isn’t for two months, the company could change its plans. Samsung declined to comment. The Note line doesn’t sell as well as Samsung’s Galaxy S devices, but the big-screen phablet has a fervent fan base. Introduced in 2011, the first Note kicked off the trend toward bigger displays on phones, a trend that become the norm across the mobile industry. The size of the first Note’s screen — 5.3 inches — now seems almost small compared to today’s giants, such as the Note 9’s 6.4-inch display and the iPhone XS Max’s 6.5 inch-screen.last_img read more

This Doll May Be Recording What Children Say Privacy Groups Charge

first_imgBrian Naylor/NPRPrivacy groups have filed a complaint about My Friend Cayla dolls to the Federal Trade Commission, arguing that they spy on children.Tech toys have become popular holiday gifts. Many are interactive; some even claim educational benefits. But one such toy has privacy advocates very worried this year.It’s called My Friend Cayla. It’s a doll and looks pretty much like most dolls do. She is available in various skin tones and hair colors, and according to her website, she is the smartest toy you’ll ever have.But My Friend Cayla also has some issues. She sings, talks and listens — maybe a little too well.“We’re very concerned about the fact that these dolls are essentially spying on your kids’ private conversations,” says Claire Gartland, director of the Consumer Privacy Project at the Electronic Privacy Information Center, a Washington nonprofit that advocates for consumer privacy.The problem with Cayla, Gartland says, is that everything a child tells the doll can be recorded, in the guise of having an interactive conversation.Ask her, say, “Can I tell you a secret?” And the doll responds: “Sure go ahead; be very quiet, though. I promise not to tell anyone; it’s just between you and me because we are friends.”But Gartland says anything that’s said to Cayla isn’t really secret at all. If the doll is connected to a smartphone — as it’s designed to be — that information can be sent to the toy’s makers.“There’s all kinds of intimate details of their personal life, their parents’ personal lives. We know how kids at younger ages don’t necessarily have the same social filter,” Gartland says, “so these children could be chattering on about anything, really.”Gartland says the conversations that Cayla records are sent to servers at a company called Genesis, which makes the doll, and to another company called Nuance, which makes voice-recognition software for this any many other products. Nuance also has a database used by law enforcement and military and intelligence agencies that matches voiceprints.In a blog post, Nuance says it does not share voice data collected from its customers with any of its other customers. Genesis did not return calls for comment.Gartland says parents are not being sufficiently notified of My Friend Cayla’s capabilities, “and more importantly they’re not consenting to this, and that’s where some of our legal regulations come into play.”The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act requires companies that collect and use private information from children age 12 and younger to notify their parents and get permission first.Gartland’s group and other privacy advocates have filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission about Cayla. Ideally they’d like to see the toy and its sibling, i-Que Intelligent Robot, taken off the shelves in the United States, as has happened in some European countries.Copyright 2016 NPR.

Louisville Football Names McKenzie to Coach Running Backs

first_imgMcKenzie earned an undergraduate degree in secondary education, political science, and American history in 2005. He completed his master’s degree in education at Vanderbilt in 2010. LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The University of Louisville football program has hired Norval McKenzie as its running backs coach, head coach Scott Satterfield announced on Tuesday. McKenzie is the father of one daughter, Anaya, and he and his wife Amber have a son, Storm.MCKENZIE AT A GLANCE2006-07: Hiram (Ga.) H.S. (assistant coach)2008-09: Vanderbilt (graduate assistant)2010: Vanderbilt (assistant recruiting coordinator)2011-15: Furman (running backs/special teams coordinator/recruiting coordinator)2016-18: Arkansas State (running backs) McKenzie helped lead Furman to a 2013 SoCon championship and several victories over FCS nationally-ranked teams, including No. 5 Wofford in 2011. The Paladins also knocked off then-FCS member and No. 3-ranked Appalachian State in 2011. Story Links Before his stint at Arkansas State, McKenzie spent five seasons at Furman, serving as the running backs coach, special teams coordinator and recruiting coordinator. The 2008 season saw him help Vanderbilt post its first winning season (7-6) since 1982 and a 16-14 victory over Boston College in the Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl – the program’s first bowl victory since 1955. McKenzie assumed the duties of assistant recruiting coordinator, while also helping with player development and coordinating the Gridiron Club for former Commodore letter winners, in 2010. A Powder Springs, Ga., native and former football standout at McEachern (Ga.) High School, McKenzie was a four-year football letterman for Vanderbilt (2001-04), where he rushed for 1,411 career yards. He battled back from a serious leg injury his sophomore year to lead Vanderbilt in rushing as both a junior and senior. Last season, McKenzie’s running backs were an integral component of the offense that averaged 186.4 yards on the ground, guiding the Red Wolves to an 8-5 record and a win over Nevada in the Arizona Bowl. McKenzie tutored two of the Sun Belt’s top-10 rushers in Marcel Murray and the league’s Freshman of the Year Warren Wand. McCloud, who completed his career ranked 10th in Furman rushing history, garnered all-conference recognition in 2013 after running for 1,110 yards and five scores. Triston Luke rushed for 385 yards and a pair of scores in 2015 to find a place on the league’s All-Freshman team, while Marcus Anderson earned the recognition in 2013 when he posted 334 rushing yards and two touchdowns.center_img Alma Mater: Vanderbilt, 2005Hometown: Powder Springs, Ga.Wife: Amber (Falcone)Daughter: AnayaSons: Storm Print Friendly Version While coaching at Furman, McKenzie instructed a pair of All-Southern Conference running backs and two others who were named to the league’s All-Freshman team. Jerodis Williams was a two-time All-SoCon choice after rushing for 2,225 yards and 20 touchdowns over his junior and senior campaigns, in addition to earning All-America honors in 2012 when he led the FCS in kickoff returns (35.9 avg., 2 TDs). Before joining the Louisville staff, McKenzie spent the last three seasons as the running backs coach at Arkansas State. Following graduation, he began his coaching career at Hiram (Ga.) High School, working two seasons there before returning to Vanderbilt as a graduate assistant coach for the 2008 and 2009 campaigns. Playing Experience2001-04: Vanderbilt (RB) Murray, who finished seventh in the Sun Belt in rushing, ran for 860 yards and eight scores, while Wand totaled 792 yards and four touchdowns to help the Red Wolves finish fifth in the conference in rushing. Wand closed his career finishing in the top 10 in school history in rushing yards. In McKenzie’s first season in 2016, the Red Wolves won a Sun Belt Conference championship with a 7-1 record and defeated UCF 31-13 in the Cure Bowl. During that campaign, Wand and junior Johnston White combined to rush for 1,351 yards and 12 touchdowns. Wand, a second-team all-conference honoree, rushed for a team-high 879 yards, while also posting 24 receptions for 279 yards and three more scores. McKenzie’s impact was felt during his second season, helping the Red Wolves rank No. 10 in the nation in total offense, averaging a school-record 494.8 yards per game. The unit also accounted for 10 combined touchdowns as the team ranked No. 13 in the country in scoring offense with 37.8 points per game. In that season, Wand and Johnson combined for 1,145 yards and nine touchdowns. last_img read more

State has seen finances improve despite huge burden inherited from Left Front

first_imgKolkata: State Finance and Industry minister Amit Mitra placed statistics, highlighting the improvement in the last seven years with regards to the economic and financial parameters of Bengal. The turnaround, according to Mitra, has occurred even after a huge debt burden left by the previous Left Front regime in the state.In response to a query from Congress MLA Asit Mitra at the state Assembly, the state Finance minister pointed out that the debt and GSDP (gross state domestic product) ratio has actually gone down by almost 5 percent in seven years from 2010-11 to 2017-18. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal life”The ratio was 40.65 percent in 2010-11, from which it has gone down to 35.63 percent. The revenue deficit to GSDP has also dropped from 3.75 percent in 2010-11 to 0.96 percent in the 17-18 fiscal. The fiscal deficit has also halved during this period, to 2.83 percent from 4.24 percent,” Mitra said. According to Mitra, the Left Front government’s huge loan had been caused by their inability in implementing the Financial Regulation and Budget Management Act (FRBM). “Bengal had also lost grant of the 12th and 13th finance commission because of this and the Left Front had left a loan of Rs 1,91,835 crore,” Mitra maintained, adding that for repayment of the loan the state had to borrow Rs 1,53,741 crore, taking the total loan to Rs 3,45, 577 crore. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedChief Minister Mamata Banerjee also pointed out that the Left had not acted correctly in taking loan from small savings. “Loan from small savings is always an area of concern as it involves common people’s money. They did not sign FRBM and took loan from small savings, which is not right,” she added. According to Mitra, the present government is in a debt trap because of the previous Left Front government. “We have increased the revenue through fiscal discipline and e-governance, but still we are compelled to pay a huge amount because of the loan taken by the previous government,” he said, adding that the state has a debt repayment burden of Rs 47,000 crore in the current fiscal. Mitra asserted that the planned expenditure has grown over 5 fold from Rs 11,837 crore in 2011-12 to 56,604 crore in 2017-18. The capital expenditure has grown over 8 fold from Rs 2,225 crore in 2011 to 19,368 crore in 2017-18.last_img read more

July 1, 2009 – Radiologists can effectively lower the patient radiation dose by approximately 44 percent and improve vascular enhancement without deterioration of image quality, while screening for possible pulmonary emboli using pulmonary CT angiography, according to a study Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, Mass., published in the June issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology.Researchers used pulmonary CT angiography to evaluate a total of 400 patients believed to have a pulmonary embolism. Two hundred patients were evaluated using the standard peak kilovoltage setting of 130 or 120 kVp and the other 200 patients were evaluated using a low peak kilovoltage setting of 110 or 100 kVp. Shin Matsuoka, M.D., lead author of the study, and his team found that lowering the peak kilovoltage setting by 20-kVp led to superior vascular enhancement without deterioration of image quality allowing them to effectively reduce the patient radiation dose. The study shows that lowering the kilovoltage setting may be an effective method of lowering the radiation dose for most patients.For more information: www.arrs.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Video Player is loading.Mark Ibrahim explains what EPs need from CT imagingPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 5:23Loaded: 3.08%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -5:23 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Hunter under investigation for killing Costa Rican cougar

first_imgRelated posts:President Chinchilla signs ban on hunting for sport Hunters ignore Costa Rican ban, kill mother deer, fawn near Carara National Park National Police arrest 6 hunters inside Palo Verde National Park Costa Rica judge releases poachers hours after cops catch them with dozens of dead birds Prosecutors in the southern Pacific canton of Buenos Aires, in the province of Puntarenas, are investigating a local man for allegedly killing a Costa Rican cougar (Puma concolor costaricensis), an endangered species in the country.The investigation began after a photograph of the man holding the body of the dead cougar as a trophy next to his shotgun appeared in a story published by the digital newspaper pzhoy.com.“We received the photograph attached to an email from one of our readers,” the site’s webmaster Randall Chávez told The Tico Times.Agents of the Judicial Investigation Police (OIJ) along with members of the National System of Conservation Areas used the information in the email to identify the man and opened an investigation on the case that reportedly occurred in late April.Earlier this month OIJ agents arrested the man following an inspection of his property located in the rural community of San Luis de Chánguena in Buenos Aires.The man, whose identity was not disclosed, was charged with a violation to the Wildlife Law, and a copy of the picture was filed as evidence before the local court.The legal process against him initiated in early May, and he was released with preventive measures, OIJ’s press office confirmed.Hunting for sport was banned in Costa Rica in 2013 when ex-President Laura Chinchilla signed a law setting fines for hunters of up to ₡1.5 million ($3,000) and up to ₡900,000 ($1,800) for people caught trafficking wildlife species.The law allows hunting for personal consumption in limited circumstances, scientific research or wildlife population control, and it does not affect sport fishing, a popular tourist activity in the country.

India govt faces heat after raising diesel prices

first_img How men can have a healthy 2019 Top holiday drink recipes Comments   Share   Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix A decision to limit to six the number of subsidized cooking gas cylinders available to each household a year would also leave the government with a shortfall of 320 billion rupees ($5.8 billion).Last year, widespread protests forced the government to withdraw a decision allowing foreign supermarket chains like Wal-Mart to open stores in India.But the diesel price increase was welcomed by business leaders and the Confederation of India Industries praised the government’s “bold decision.”“(The) rationalization of fuel subsidies is a necessity from the point of fiscal consolidation,” CII Director General Chandrajit Banerjee said in a statement.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Sponsored Stories Patients with chronic pain give advice Top Stories The subsidy reduction is part of the government’s economic reform program. The delay in those reforms has been blamed in part on a sharp drop in India’s growth rate and the rapid fall in the value of the rupee.Concerned by India’s massive subsidy bill, ratings agencies have threatened to downgrade India.The government has also announced a reduction in cooking gas subsidies. The price of diesel _ important for farmers’ irrigation pumps and tractors, as well as trains and buses _ is politically sensitive in India and both opposition politicians and coalition allies criticized Thursday’s decision.“It will affect the farmer, it will affect the common people,” West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee told CNN-IBN television channel. She demanded that the government withdraw the hike.Banerjee, whose Trinamool Congress party is a key coalition member, said she had never been consulted on the price rise.Another government ally, the Samajwadi Party, also demanded that the government retract the decision.The opposition Bharatiya Janata Party also slammed the move and said it would add to the problems of India’s poor.The Congress Party-led government said that even with the increase in diesel price, the state oil companies would lose about 1 trillion rupees ($18.7 billion) this fiscal year. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement NEW DELHI (AP) – India’s beleaguered government faced angry protests from its political allies as well as the opposition Friday after it raised the price of diesel fuel in a bid to curb a ballooning national deficit.The government raised the price of diesel by five rupees (10 cents) a liter late Thursday. The price of diesel is regulated and kept much lower than gasoline prices in India. But the government has been under intense pressure to reduce its fiscal deficit by cutting spending for subsidies, particularly on fuel. Bottoms up!

IHG named among Top 5 Most Desirable Workplaces in Asia

first_imgIHG named among Top 5 Most Desirable Workplaces in AsiaIHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) one of the world’s leading global hotel companies, has been named among the top five companies to work for in Asia in Great Place to Work®’s annual ‘Best Workplaces in Asia 2017’ list.Ranked fifth in this year’s coveted list, IHG has been recognised for showing commitment to creating a great work environment where colleagues trust the people they work for, take pride in the work they do, and enjoy working with the people around them.The rankings are derived from insights gathered from Great Place to Work’s extensive Trust Index© Survey which measures employee perception of the workplace environment, and a Culture Audit©, completed by the organisation’s management team and evaluated by an independent Great Place to Work team.

A place where people come to work excited and engaged in what they do, where they can grow and learn, and where they can be themselves, is not just a nice to have but is part of our DNA and competitive advantage. This stems from an environment built on trust and shared values and impacts how we interact with our guests and with each other.“Being recognised as one of the best companies to work for in Asia shows that we are on the right path.
