Next Apple Watch may come with sleep tracking feature

first_imgSan Francisco: Apple is working on a sleep tracking feature called ‘Time in Bed tracking’ for its new range of Apple Watch wearables. The new feature will give users the option to wear the Apple Watch in their sleep and if they do, data such as heart rate, motion, and noise, will be used to monitor the sleep quality, news portal 9TO5MAC reported on Monday. Sleep tracking has been available via a variety of third-party apps but Apple has never provided its own sleep tracking feature.

Apple Watch Series 5 model is expected to use OLED screens supplied by Japan Display, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. According to Kuo, Japan Display would gradually increase its proportion of OLED display orders for the Apple Watch, starting with 15-20 per cent of orders in 2019 and reaching 70-80 per cent in 2021.

Recently, Brazilian site iHelp BR spotted graphics hidden in the beta code of watchOS 6 that points to ceramic and titanium casings quite possibly for the Apple Watch 5, alongside stainless steel for the Apple Watch 4.last_img read more

Government shutdown poses increasing risk to wider economy

WASHINGTON — At this time of year, John Sprinkle and his wife would normally be planning their summer vacation. Not now. Sprinkle, a furloughed federal employee, is about to miss his second paycheque since the partial government shutdown began just before Christmas.With no end in sight to the longest shutdown in American history, Sprinkle and his family are postponing all manner of spending.“We were thinking of getting a new computer, but that’s not going to happen,” he said. “We’re not really eating out like we normally would be. We are not going out to events like we would be.”Multiply those decisions by 800,000 federal employees across the country and hundreds of thousands of government contractors who aren’t being paid either, and the shutdown looms as an accelerating threat to the wider economy.The shutdown’s biggest effect on the economy is likely to be the cutback in federal spending. But consumer spending, which is critical to growth, is another important factor.When government employees spend less, stores and restaurants that serve them suffer. So do landlords and lenders that do business with federal workers. Though spending and growth will rebound once the government reopens, most of the restaurant meals missed and hotel stays cancelled will never be made up.“Creditors and suppliers hit by the shutdown will become less patient if it drags on,” Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, said in a research note. “People and businesses are being hurt by the shutdown, and the pain will intensify.”If the shutdown drags on through March, annual economic growth could fall to zero in the first three months of the year. Even if the government reopens by the end of the month, the annual pace of growth could be a meagre 1.6 per cent — only half the pace of last quarter, said Sal Guatieri, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets.Kevin Hassett, a top White House economist, acknowledged in an interview on CNN that growth could be flat in the first quarter, though Hassett suggested that a “humongous” rebound would follow. Yet some independent economists doubt that the rebound would be enough to offset the initial damage. The economy is already bedeviled by slowing global growth, ongoing trade tensions and higher interest rates, which contributed to a plunge in home sales last month.Bernard Baumohl, chief economist at the Economic Outlook Group, suggested that once the government reopened, many households would focus on repaying credit card debt and restoring lost savings — trends that would slow the rebound.For now, there are hints that the shutdown is slowing retail sales. A measure of weekly chain store sales fell 1.3 per cent last week, its second straight drop. Cold weather likely contributed to the fall, said Michael Niemira, chief economist at the consulting firm Retail Economist, but the shutdown may also have contributed.It’s hard to know just how much the shutdown is depressing consumer spending because the Commerce Department, which compiles and reports such data, was itself closed by the shutdown.Anecdotal evidence, though, suggests that the trend is spreading. Even federal workers with solid finances are holding back. Sprinkle, who lives in Alexandria, Virginia, knows he will eventually be paid, and his wife is still earning a paycheque. Their two children are out of the house, in college, and he knows he could borrow against his home equity if he had to.Still, “the effect is more psychological,” he said.The shutdown began on the day of his 20th anniversary working for the National Park Service, where he is now a historian. His Mac computer is roughly eight years old and will no longer update with the latest operating software. But he is postponing a replacement.The impact of the shutdown is evident beyond Washington. Officials in New Orleans announced Wednesday that they are waiving late fees for federal workers who have fallen behind on their property taxes.Also Wednesday, in Philadelphia, a hunger relief organization set up a market for furloughed federal workers under an Interstate 95 overpass. Stefanie Arck-Baynes, a spokeswoman for the group, Philabundance, said they had expected 150 to 300 people. But by 11 a.m., they had already served 300, and the lines were growing.The organization extended the hour-long event to meet demand. Tables were set up with lines of fresh produce, bread, milk and canned goods.It was the first time the group had offered an “emergency food response” in Philadelphia in its 35-year history, Arck-Baynes said.James Grant was there stocking up on fresh fruits and vegetables. At 64, he is diabetic and must take care with his diet. Grant has worked for 40 years as a maintenance engineer at Independence National Historical Park, which includes Independence Hall, the First Bank of the United States and the Liberty Bell.The shutdown, of course, also affects millions of relatives of federal workers. Grant has an adult son who is in a nursing home after becoming disabled years ago in a car accident. He said he has had to stop sending him money.In Washington, D.C., on Tuesday night, Hannah Perry was one of dozens who lined up at World Central Kitchen, which offered free food and coffee to federal workers. The kitchen is a charity headed by celebrity chef Jose Andres that began in 2010 to feed survivors of a massive earthquake in Haiti.Perry, 23, who works as a program assistant at the National Science Foundation, is struggling to pay her rent, student loans and health care bills.She has applied for unemployment benefits and shifted to a different student loan repayment plan under which she will pay $98 a month, a third less than her previous payment. But that plan required her to accept a higher interest rate that will raise the total cost of the loan, a small example of the potential lingering effects of the shutdown.What will she do if the shutdown continues for weeks on end?“If it extends for a really long time, I have no idea,” she said.___Associated Press writers Kristen De Groot in Philadelphia, Anne D’Innocenzio in New York and Martin Crutsinger in Washington contributed to this report.Christopher Rugaber, The Associated Press read more

Accurate occupational data vital to save lives says UN labour agency on

“Protect labour rights and promote safe and secure working environments for all workers, including migrant workers, in particular women migrants, and those in precarious employment,” reads the target and one of its indicators, the frequency rates of fatal and non-fatal occupational injuries (disaggregated by sex and migrant status of the workers), underscore the need for improving OSH data collection and use. Countries that have good data are, therefore, better placed to fulfil their commitment to implement and report on the global plan of action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all under the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, noted Mr. Ryder. ILO, on its part, has been continuing to supporting countries efforts to strengthen their capacity to prevent occupational accidents and diseases including through practical measures such as its OSH Toolbox.The Toolbox containing resources to help improve the capacity to collect and use reliable of occupational safety and health data. “Improved and harmonized OSH data facilitates meaningful comparative analysis and informed effective awareness raising [and facilitate] effective social dialogue on OSH issues among stakeholders including government, employers’ and workers’ organizations,” said the ILO Director-General, adding: “Accurate data will help to save lives. Let us make it a priority.” “Reliable OSH data is indispensable for the detection of new hazards and emerging risks,” said ILO Director General Guy Ryder in a statement today, the World Day for Safety and Health at Work. “It is indispensable for the detection of new hazards and emerging risks, the identification of hazardous sectors, the development of preventive measures, as well as the implementation of policies, systems and programmes at national and enterprise levels.” Such data, according to the UN specialized agency, is also important for early detection and diagnosis of occupational diseases as well as with measures for their recognition and compensation. One of the targets (target 8.8) of the eighth Sustainable Development Goal (SDG8), which calls for promoting sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all, specifically seeks to improve safer and more secure working environment. read more

Inmarsat and Auxilium partner to deliver IIoT and comms solutions to miners

first_imgInmarsat, the global mobile satellite communications provider and Auxilium, a leading Australian mining technology solutions company, have established a formal partnership to deliver the most effective Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and communications solutions for Australian mining companies.The partnership will see Auxilium deploying satellite connectivity from Inmarsat in its IIoT solutions. “This will ensure that mining companies can access IIoT and communications services regardless of how remote their location, and without the need to invest significant sums in building a terrestrial communications infrastructure in order to connect their mining operations.”Auxilium designs and manufactures technically advanced mining equipment, technology and services to support high-value mining and construction assets. It deploys satellite connectivity to enable the seamless transition of data from mine site to the control centre, which can be thousands of kilometres apart.“Inmarsat’s L-band satellite network offers the most reliable, secure connectivity for IIoT applications globally. With satellite availability up to 99.9%, rugged and energy efficient terminals, and low latency data transmission, it is the ideal solution for remote monitoring and automation applications.”“By combining Inmarsat’s award-winning network and Auxilium’s innovative solutions, mining businesses will be able to benefit from operational efficiencies and enhanced profitability regardless of how far they are from their head office.”Previously, organisations, particularly those of medium-or-junior-size, have struggled to justify the cost of installing terrestrial connectivity networks in remote locations, or have suffered with unreliable satellite connectivity. “This partnership will give Auxilium’s customers access to the world’s broadest and most reliable portfolio of satellite services, and will enable the provision of solutions at a lower cost, with no requirement on the part of mining companies to make significant investments in terrestrial infrastructure.”Commenting on the partnership with Inmarsat, Wayne Panther, Founder of Auxilium, said: “IIoT is changing the mining industry and is fast leading to the emergence of safer, more efficient and more profitable ways of working. However, many mining companies struggle to obtain the requisite connectivity for IIoT data transfer or on-site communications and are often faced with making huge investments in terrestrial infrastructure. With Inmarsat’s satellite capability, we can eliminate the need for this investment and deliver robust and reliable connectivity that works wherever the mine is located. We reviewed several providers of satellite communications, even taking terminals and phones into the pit, and Inmarsat were the only provider whose connectivity worked wherever we were.”Nathan Mitchell, Chairman of Auxilium Systems: “This partnership between Inmarsat and Auxilium Systems brings the ability to improve our capabilities in delivering real-time, mine-based communications and automation to Australian mining companies and other sectors. This will lead to further improvements in efficiencies and real-time decision making that will continue to see Australian mining at the forefront of technological advances and further demonstrates Auxilium Systems’ ability to provide industry-leading solutions to our current and future clients.”Joe Carr, Director of Mining at Inmarsat Enterprise, commented: “Mining companies are under huge pressure to extract product at a profitable margin. Working with Auxilium is going to enable us to deliver solutions on a managed services model, reducing up-front investment and strain on capital expenditure budgets. Auxilium’s expertise in creating technical solutions that solve key business challenges for mining companies is unparalleled. Combined with Inmarsat’s broad portfolio of connectivity services and the world’s most reliable satellite connectivity experience, we believe that together we can provide the mining sector with a really compelling proposition.”last_img read more

Nintendo announces Google Maps support for the Wii U

first_imgNintendo has used its latest Nintendo Direct video update to announce plans to offer Google Maps support for the Wii U. The key feature of Maps on the console will be using the GamePad and TV displays for different visual experiences.In the demonstration provided by Nintendo, the GamePad will be used like an augmented reality controller for Google’s Street View mode. You can stand up and pan around with the GamePad and Street View will keep up with you on the screen. Meanwhile on the television you are provided with the familiar satellite view of an area, just like Google Maps normally displays. The combination allows you to quickly access an area and then explore it through Street View.Nintendo’s Google Maps integration is a more functional version of an interactive experience the company demonstrated at E3 called Panorama View. It allowed a user to pan around and explore a live video, as though they were there. Panorama View is neither gone nor forgotten, in fact Nintendo plans to roll it out in 2013.Panorama View offers the user the ability to use the GamePad as the camera in the (compatible) video being shown, with a wide angle shot of the video displayed on the television. This experience is more guided than Street View, typically with other people in view. The demo used was a tour through Kyoto and a ride on a double-decker bus in London. In each demonstration, the focus was placed on the ability to move around the video with the GamePad as though you were there.Finally, additional details regarding the release of Nintendo TVii were announced. Nintendo TVii is a work in progress, and one Nintendo looks to keep upgrading throughout the life of the Wii U. If the existing TVii app is to be believed, the service is set to launch on an unspecified date this month. Nintendo has announced a TV guide tool that will be accessible from the GamePad without interfering with the content currently being played on the television. However, there was no mention of whether or not this feature will be available outside if Japan immediately, or how the TV Guide will interact with TiVo integration.The Wii U has undoubtedly had a rough start, but Nintendo seems dedicated to making the console something everyone has an excuse to use. For many, things like Google Maps or Panorama View seem like unnecessary features for a console, but Nintendo wants you to use the Wii U for everything.The continued feature push for the Wii U is certainly a good thing, even if the initial experience with the console dealt some damage to Nintendo’s reputation.via Nintendo Directlast_img read more

Un classement des Samu révèle des chiffres inquiétants

first_imgUn classement des Samu révèle des chiffres inquiétantsHuit mois après le décès de Naomi Musenga dont l’appel au Samu avait été moqué par une opératrice, le service d’aide médicale urgente est à nouveau pointé du doigt. D’après une enquête du magazine Le Point, en 2016, 4,6 millions de coups de fils passés auprès du 15 n’auraient pas obtenu de réponse. Décryptage. En mai dernier, explose l’affaire Musenga. Du nom de la jeune femme qui est décédée à l’âge de 22 ans suite à une intoxication au paracétamol. Son appel au SAMU de Strasbourg n’avait pas été pris au sérieux par l’opératrice et s’en était alors suivie une grande méfiance publique quant à l’efficacité du 15. L’hebdomadaire Le Point a voulu en savoir plus et sort cette semaine une enquête exclusive appelée « Classement des Samu : quand le 15 ne répond pas ». MaxiSciences fait le point sur les éléments phare de cette investigation. 4,6 millions d’appels passés au 15 sont restés sans réponseEn analysant, la base de données de la statistique annuelle des établissements de santé (SAE), les journalistes livrent une information vertigineuse : sur 29,2 millions d’appels passés aux 101 centres qui reçoivent et régulent les appels des Samu passés en 2016, « 24,6 millions seulement ont reçu une réponse d’une personne physique ». Le taux de réponse est donc de 84 %. On note parmi les bons élèves qui obtiennent un taux de 100% de décrochage : Nice, Avignon, Troyes, Tours et Orléans. Un slogan mis à mal par les chiffres « Chaque appel compte, chaque seconde compte », affirme le slogan  du SAMU. En fait et d’après le SAE, tout dépendrait de la localisation des centres de régulation médicale des urgences. En effet, seuls 2 centres d’appels sur les 101 que compte le territoire parviennent à répondre dans la minute (ce qui fait partie des recommandations) aux coups de fil passés au 15. Il s’agit de celui d’Orléans et celui de Verdun. Si l’on envisage de déménager en fonction des villes dont les SAMU sont les plus réactifs, on notera  alors sur ses cartons : Auxerre, Alençon et Verdun qui non seulement répondent à 100% des appels mais qui le font, dans la quasi-totalité, en moins d’une minute. Bonnets d’âne À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?Les plus mauvais centres sont ceux de Pointe-à-Pitre et Paris qui n’arrivent pas à répondre à 1 appel sur 2. Celui de Strasbourg qui avait été pointé du doigt lors du décès de Naomi Musenga se classe parmi les plus mauvais en arrivant 85e sur 101. Plus de moyens pour plus d’efficacité François Braun, le président de Samu-Urgences de France a commenté ces chiffres, ce matin, sur France Info : «  il n’y a pas 4,5 millions de nos concitoyens qui appellent le Samu et qui n’arrivent pas à le joindre. Ce chiffre ne veut pas dire ça. Ces appels représentent tous les appels à nos standards téléphoniques, à nos standards techniques. Dans ces appels, un certain nombre sont raccrochés immédiatement, ce sont des erreurs ».Le responsablea également rappelé que l’objectif est de parvenir à ce que 99% des appels soient décrochés dans la minute. C’est pourquoi il réclameune amélioration de la formation des assistants de régulation médicale et prévoit d’organiser « les Samu en réseau pour qu’ils se viennent en aide les uns aux autres ».

Galaxy Fold screen mess Sucking up to buyers might be Samsungs best

first_img Now playing: Watch this: Close up with the Galaxy Fold screen, notch and hinge Samsung By now, Samsung has reclaimed the Galaxy Fold units, defective and whole alike. Returning those units after a 10-day review period was always part of the deal. But there’s little doubt that Samsung is also attempting to run damage control on what has become a runaway situation and a black eye for the brand’s reputation as an innovator.Read: What the Galaxy Fold’s screen crease, notch and air gap are really like to useThe Galaxy Fold is not your typical phone by a long shot. At twice the cost of the excellent Galaxy S10 Plus, the Fold represents a new category that makes it phone and tablet in one. If Samsung wants to position the Fold as a “luxury” device, it will need to make buyers feel like they’re part of an exclusive club with accelerated customer service, free upgrades, gifts and sneak peeks. After all, who doesn’t love a good perk? Buyers of high-end goods and services are already conditioned to expect giveaways, exclusive experiences and personalized attention. Take for example, owners of luxury cars who get a dedicated concierge service or free track instruction; winery members who are invited to private dinner pairings; and frequent fliers with airline status that gets them First Class upgrades and fresh-from-the-oven chocolate chip cookies.Galaxy Fold buyers need a little incentive. Angela Lang/CNET Samsung, and its carrier partners, should extend a version of that philosophy to bring buyers back on board. The Galaxy Fold has a delicate screen. If it breaks, will Samsung offer an immediate fix or repair and a loaner phone in the meantime? What about a dedicated customer service number for troubleshooting issues? Read: After Galaxy Fold fiasco, Note 10 may be the hero phone Samsung needsThe Galaxy Fold comes with a case and a set of wireless Galaxy Buds in the box, but maybe Fold buyers should also get access to elite wallpapers, a mountain of Samsung Rewards points that can be redeemed for other items or $20 free Samsung Pay credit. Post a comment 10:12 Foldable Phones Tablets But for the bleeding-edge early adopters for whom the Fold may not be an only phone, or those who are still committed to the foldable phone vision, knowing that Samsung is providing both a safety net and a carrot could make enough of a difference to convince them to give the Galaxy Fold a second chance.Samsung did not respond to a request for comment.Originally published April 30. The Galaxy Fold is now weeks away from launch and it’s already up to its hinge in quicksand. By the fifth breakdown in the Fold’s Infinity Flex screen, many onlookers had lost faith in Samsung’s brave new foldable phone design. Samsung’s one saving grace in the embarrassing, sensationalized debacle is that the issues — three in all — were discovered on early production units in reviewers’ hands, and not the final sale devices that customers had shelled out $1,980 apiece for. (CNET’s review unit was never affected.)Samsung is delaying the Fold’s official release to address what went wrong — which means the world’s largest phone-maker has another shot, perhaps a slim one, to make things right. First, Samsung needs to clear up problems with the screen and hinge, which are easily damaged and compromised. Second, after finding ways to communicate to future Fold owners that they should never, under any circumstance, remove the protective screen film, there’s still one thing the brand must do: give Fold owners the red carpet treatment. Now playing: Watch this:center_img Tags Our Galaxy Fold didn’t break. Here’s what’s good and… Share your voice Paying $2,000 for a phone was already a lot to ask even before the Fold’s screen issues turned early buyers into guinea pigs for emerging technology. Samsung should want to reduce buyers’ skittishness, and work to hook their loyalty, by reducing the risk of ownership while also making it worth people’s effort to go out on a limb for a product do-over.Will perks make buyers come back? Maybe not the on-the-fence observers or industry watchers who prefer to wait for bendable glass screens or cheaper entry prices. Read: The Galaxy Fold can’t have this one useful thing 0 Will Galaxy Fold screen flap derail the foldable phone… 4:40 60 Photoslast_img read more

first_imgSeptember 28, 2018This Past weekend Arcosanti had the unique pleasure of hosting, Stiltasana, organized by Carpetbag Brigade and taught by company members Helen Goodrum, Alicia Gerstein and Levana Prud’Homme. Stiltasana is an event during which participants get to evolve their skills and meet the wider stilting community. There were times during everyone trained and worked hard, and there was much needed relaxation as well.Those who were present were performers, stilters, dancers, yogis, and just plenty of people with a deep curiosity to explore the capacity of their body.Classes were provided for all levels of stilters – beginners, intermediate and advanced. And the participants learned a mix of acrobatics, butoh and contact improvisation through still point exercises, partner walks, inversions & oppositions and graceful ground movement all on stilts.Everyone learned an amazing variety of skills, which are sure to be incorporated into their own performances. If you’re interested in attending one of the Carpetbag Brigade’s workshops and/or demonstrations, feel free to check out their website. This is just one of many exciting things happening at Arcosanti. Make sure to check back in for another scoop, and stay tuned!(Photos by Sue Kirsch and text by Jesse Fernandez)last_img read more
