Petting dogs cats may reduce stress in students

first_imgCollege is stressful. Students have classes, exams and so many other pressures common in modern life and now researchers have found that petting dogs and cats can improve students’ mood with stress-relieving physiological benefits, a study shows. According to a recently published study, many universities have instituted “Pet Your Stress Away” programmes, where students can come in and interact with cats and dogs. “Just 10 minutes can have a significant impact,” students in our study that interacted with cats and dogs had a significant reduction in cortisol, a major stress hormone,” said Patricia Pendry, Associate Professor at Washington State University. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe study involved 249 college students randomly divided into four groups. The first group received hands-on interaction in small groups with cats and dogs for 10 minutes. They could pet, play with and generally hang out with the animals as they wanted. To compare effects of different exposures to animals, the second group observed other people petting animals while they waited in line for their turn. The third group watched a slideshow of the same animals available during the intervention, while the fourth group was “waitlisted”.last_img read more

Abraham Lincolns Patented Invention

first_imgWell before he became President, Abraham Lincoln was well known for his interest in mechanics and engineering. From childhood, he was very interested in the culture of designing and inventing, especially as it applied to inventions to make labor more efficient.As an adult, he even gave a lecture on discoveries and inventions to the Young Men’s Association in Bloomington, Illinois in 1858, which is discussed at Abraham Lincoln Online.Abraham Lincoln.He repeated it the following year in Jacksonville, Illinois, and also in Decatur, Springfield, and Pontiac.In his lecture he says that while man is not the only animal to labor, he is the only one to improve his craft, going on to discuss the evolutions of a variety of technological advancements man has devised over the centuries.Given Lincoln’s interest in such concerns, it is no surprise that he alone, of all American Presidents, should hold a patent for an invention of his own.Replica of the farm site where Abraham Lincoln lived with his family from 1816 to 1830. Photo by Rene Sturgell CC BY-SA 3.0As a young man, Lincoln spent time working on a flatboat, traveling from Illinois to New Orleans, along with his stepmother’s son and another young man.On this trip, the boat they were on became hung up on a milldam near New Salem, on the Sangamon River.The craft started taking on water, and began to sink. Lincoln led the effort to move around the cargo and drain the water from the boat to keep it from capsizing.Abraham Lincoln.Years later, coming home to Illinois between sessions of Congress, Lincoln again found himself in a ship that became hung up in the shallows.This time, the boat’s captain ordered the crew to start putting barrels, boxes, and loose planks over the sides of the vessel, and push them underneath.This decision allowed the boat to float higher in the water and come free.  These two incidents are thought to be the seeds that led to his patent.Lincoln patent drawings for patent No. 6,469.He called his invention “Buoying Vessels Over Shoals.” According to U.S News, Lincoln conceived a series of bellows that would be attached to the underside of a boat, and could be inflated either by hand or using steam power.The bellows fill bladders of waterproof fabric, lifting the boat over the shoals in a similar manner to that which he saw on his trip.As part of his process for researching his device, Lincoln made a working scale model of a boat with the equipment installed, and brought it with him to Washington.Patent Model of Abraham Lincoln’s Invention, never actually built.

Lewan decided to show his displeasure at the invasion of privacy by flipping the cam the bird, and honestly you can’t blame him. It’s one thing to get a different angle on a long run, but using skycam to zoom in on human suffering is a little over the top.Taylor Lewan appears to give the finger to the Spyder cam filming him while he is hurt 😮 pic.twitter.com/yhZi8obDMD— The Rush (@therushyahoo) December 7, 2018last_img read more

Moving to Macs Dont Forget About Security

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Many small businesses are moving toward the Mac platform, and it’s about more than simply having cool, sleek computers sitting on desks.Macs are solid, reliable products, especially for small-business owners who are inherently busy and don’t have a lot of time or resources committed to IT support.However, as Mac usage increases within the small-business community, so does the size of the target for cybercriminals. According to Trend Micro’s Global Threat Report for 2010, cybercriminals have been busy. The number of malicious Web links increased from 1.5 billion in January to over 3.5 billion in June, with the most located in North America. Cybercriminals are looking to maximize their return on investment for the time and effort they’ve invested in creating their malicious software. If small businesses are putting their business data on Macs and think it’s completely secure and immune from computer viruses, web threats, worms and other data-stealing malware that generally target PCs, they’ll want to amp up their security strategy.Although Apple works extremely hard to inform their customers of potential threats, vulnerabilities and provide security updates for their systems, small-business owners still need to do their part in ensuring multiple layers of protection for whatever proprietary business information or data that reside on their computers. Here are six easy steps to help make sure your Macs, and ultimately your data, are kept safe:1. Use an effective security product that’s designed for the Mac platform. In addition to PC security, more and more security providers are also putting out Mac-specific products for this growing market. Key features to look for:Proactively stops threats from the Web before they can reach your business as the majority of viruses use web sites to infect your computerIncludes three types of scanning, real-time scan, manual scan, and scheduled scanAbility to protect both PCs, and Macs with a single, integrated product. Having more than one product increases the complexity and effort to protect all your business computers2. Once you install your Mac security, enable automatic updates, and schedule weekly scans.3. In addition to the Mac operating system itself, third-party software running on it should also be kept updated. Without updated patches, this software may contain vulnerabilities that can be exploited and used to infect your computers.4. Secure your Safari Web browser as it is the interface between your Mac and the Internet. For guidance, check here.5. Only use legitimate software and programs. Downloading pirated software is illegal. Not only can it get you into trouble with the authorities, it also increases your risk of infection.6. Be cautious of clicking on embedded links found within email messages and of downloading file attachments. Your best bet is to not click on links nor download file attachments. Instead, go to the sites themselves and download what you need directly. This way, you know whatever you’re downloading is from a trusted provider.  Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. 3 min read October 4, 2010 Register Now »last_img read more

Windows 10 14936 Uninstall System Apps

first_imgWindows 10 14936: Uninstall System Apps by Martin Brinkmann on October 06, 2016 in Windows – Last Update: July 05, 2017 – 13 commentsMicrosoft’s operating system Windows 10 ships with a — growing — number of system apps. Some apps have replaced programs like the Calculator that previous versions of Windows shipped with, others like Cortana offer new functionality that was not part of previous Windows versions.You had to go through a technical process up until now to remove system apps from a device running Windows 10.This involved running Powershell commands at first, but is now easier thanks to programs like Geek Uninstaller that provide you with an interface for that.Still, Microsoft did not provide a reason for blocking the uninstallation of system apps on devices running Windows 10.If you open the Apps & features section of the Settings application, you will notice that “uninstall” is not active when you click on system applications like Mail and Calendar.Windows 10 14936 : Uninstall System AppsIf you run the latest Insider preview version of Windows, build 14936, you may have noticed that Microsoft started to do away with the restriction on that build.If you open the Mail and Calendar application for instance, you will notice that the uninstall button is active now. This means that you can remove the system app from the machine without having to resort to Powershell or third-party programs to do so.Users who are on the stable version of Windows 10 cannot uninstall system apps using the apps & features menu currently.It seems likely that Microsoft will introduce the feature with the next feature update, codename Redstone 2, which will be out in 2017.Before you start jumping up and down in joy, note that some system applications cannot be removed. While you can uninstall Mail and Calendar, Calculator, Groove Music, Maps, and Weather, you cannot remove Alarm & Clock, Camera, Cortana, Messaging, and others.It is unclear why that distinction is being made. One possible explanation is that at least some of the system apps that you cannot uninstall using the Apps & features settings page are used for core functionality of Windows 10.Another possibility is that Microsoft is still working on the feature. Considering that it is only available in preview releases of Windows 10, there is a chance that uninstall will be activated for other system apps further down the line in development.Only time will tell if that is the case, as Microsoft has not spilled out any information on the feature yet (despite it being a highly requested feature in the Feedback Hub and on the Internet).

Dashlane wants to automate passwords in 2018

first_imgDashlane wants to automate passwords in 2018 by Martin Brinkmann on January 06, 2018 in Internet – Last Update: May 22, 2018 – 7 commentsPasswords are everywhere. You use them to sign in to operating systems and devices, web services, email accounts, computer games, audio and video chat services, or websites that you have user accounts at.If you are tech savvy, you know that it is important to use unique secure passwords for accounts. This is best done with the help of a password manager unless you only use a single account on the Internet.Password managers of today assist users in multiple ways. They store passwords, come with sure password generation options, and allow you to sync between devices often for that extra bit of comfort.What most don’t do is make the managing of passwords easier. Dashlane, makers of the popular Dashlane password manager, wants to change that.Tip: Check out our review of Dashlane 5 here.The company announced Project Mirror the other day. Project Mirror is Dashlane’s attempt at giving “you back control of your digital identity” so that the “logins and all other digital identification data are safe,” “accessed only by you” and “entirely automated.”While you could say that most password managers ensure the first two goals, it is different when it comes to the third. Sure, LastPass, Dashlane and some other password managers support the automatic changing of passwords for select services, but only for a limited number of supported sites. Dashlane introduced inbox scan in 2015 to improve automation further.Project Mirror is an evolution of earlier automation technologies according to Dashlane. The company wants to release a feature it calls Critical Account Protection as the first step towards that ambitious goal.What does it do?In a single click, this feature will import and secure your most important passwords in Dashlane, identifying any high-risk accounts and automatically resetting and securing those credentials.From your iPhone or Android device, you will be able to effortlessly identify, secure, and store your entire portfolio of passwords.The feature imports and identifies important passwords from email accounts you connect to the service. It runs a risk analysis of all accounts then and highlights accounts that have a high-risk assessment.The most interesting bit of the process is that users will be able to use Dashlane to automatically reset and secure the credentials (by updating them from within the application with minimal effort on the user’s side).In seconds, Critical Account Protection will allow you to link your email accounts, scan and view a detailed Critical Account report, and lock down any accounts you want completely protected.Dashlane published a video that demonstrates the functionality.Closing WordsThe information is scarce at this point in time. It seems however that Dashlane will use information about data breaches and hacks in the account analysis. This closes the information gap somewhat that exists and assists users who don’t follow IT news in securing their accounts after breaches.It is unclear right now if Dashlane will support only select accounts with the automation functionality — resetting and setting new passwords — or if automation covers the bulk of services out there.Now You: What’s your take on Dashlane’s initiative?SummaryArticle NameDashlane wants to automate passwords in 2018DescriptionDashlane announced Project Mirror recently; Project Mirror is Dashlane’s attempt at giving “you back control of your digital identity” so that the “logins and all other digital identification data are safe,” “accessed only by you” and “entirely automated.”Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Opera teases upcoming R2 announcement

first_imgOpera teases upcoming R2 announcement by Martin Brinkmann on April 13, 2018 in Opera – Last Update: April 14, 2018 – 20 commentsOpera Software revealed yesterday that it will make an announcement soon about something the company just calls R2 at the moment.The announcement on the Opera blog reveals little about what R2 could actually be, and the official R2 page on the Opera website does not reveal anything of substance either.Interested users can sign up on the R2 page to be among the first to be invited to the R2 online event.The entire message on the Opera blog reads:Hello,Some of you may have spotted our new web page where you can sign up to be notified about something new coming soon from Opera.Today, we have decided to unveil a tiny bit of the mystery, but just enough to keep you interested. If you sign up here, you will be among the first people to be invited to the R2 online event.We are very excited to share further details with you soon, and we hope you are eager to see what’s coming. We also plan to reveal more about the upcoming event in our social media channels, so make sure to follow us there.Your Opera TeamWhile I’m not a fan of announcements of upcoming announcements, something that I see far to often nowadays, I would like to share two theories about Opera R2.The first, and most likely explanation, is that Opera R2 refers to a second phase of Opera Reborn. Opera revealed Reborn back in February of 2017 when it revealed a new design for the Opera web browser.Opera Reborn was no complete overhaul of the browser but a gradual change to a modern design that did not turn the browser’s interface upside down.Another possible explanation for R2, albeit one that think is not very likely, is that Opera is about to release the successor of the mail client M2. I don’t think it is likely because Opera would have given the project a different codename, probably.Closing WordsWe will soon know what R2 is. My bet is on the second stage of Opera Reborn which would mean that Opera Software will launch a new version of Opera with a modified design soon.Now You: What is your guess?SummaryArticle NameOpera teases upcoming R2 announcementDescriptionOpera Software revealed yesterday that it will make an announcement soon about something the company just calls R2 at the moment.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Thirdparties may read your Google Mail emails if you allow it

first_imgThird-parties may read your Google Mail emails if you allow it by Martin Brinkmann on July 03, 2018 in Email – 16 commentsThird-party developers may access emails on Gmail if users give them access to the data, that’s the main takeaway from a new Wall Street Journal story (which I don’t link to because paywall).Google users may authorize companies to access account data. Some companies may request access to “read, send, delete, and manage your email” which gives them full access to emails on Gmail.Users need to give explicit consent to applications or services, and if that happens through a token-based system that Google uses for this kind of authorization, it does happen without users having to supply their username or password to these companies.Clients and services may require access; a third-party email client needs access to emails, and an add-on that runs directly on Gmail needs access as well.One could say that users are responsible for granting access to their data. Google told The Verge, which reported on the story of the Wall Street Journal, that all companies are vetted before they are allowed to request user data.The other side of the medal is that developers sometimes request permissions that they don’t need explicitly and that it is often difficult for users to determine whether the request makes sense. There is also no option to deny certain access, it is always an all or nothing type of situation.The biggest takeaway, however, is that access is not restricted to computers accessing the data but that human employees may and do read emails as well. Google itself is very strict about giving employees access to emails and limits it to situations where a security issue or bug requires it, or when users give Google explicit permission to do so according to the Wall Street Journal.Google’s system allows or disallows access to the email data only; the company makes no distinction between algorithms that read emails, for instance to provide functionality, and humans who read it. In other words: if you grant a company access to your email data, it may be that human employees read it.Some Gmail users may be shocked when they realize that humans may have read their emails on Gmail. Companies may reveal additional details about how data is processed but most users don’t read privacy policies, terms of service, and other legal documents prior to allowing access to their data or installing applications.What users may want to doThe very first thing that you may want to do is open the Permissions page for your Google Account to make sure that only legitimate applications and services have access to it. We suggested the very same thing last year after a big Google Docs phishing scam hit Google users.You may need to research each individual program or service to make an educated decision. If you use the email client Thunderbird for example, you may see it listed as a third-party app with account access.You can remove access for any service or application listed on the page and should do so for any that you don’t use.Now You: Do you permit third-party apps access to important data?Now Read: Google Account features you need to know aboutSummaryArticle NameThird-parties may read your Google Mail emails if you allow itDescriptionThird-party developers may access emails on Gmail if users give them access to the data, that’s the main takeaway from a new Wall Street Journal story.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Even Steve Wozniak said he fell victim to a bitcoin scam

first_imgEven the Woz has been stung by a cryptocurrency scam.Image: Anton NovoderezhkinTASS via Getty ImagesBy Johnny Lieu2018-02-27 02:18:45 UTC Like a growing number of people, Steve Wozniak has been stung by a cryptocurrency scam.The Apple co-founder told the Economic Times of India that he had seven bitcoins stolen from him via fraud. While there’s been plenty of attention on pesky fake Elon Musk cryptocurrency scams, the Woz was swindled by an arguably antiquated tactic: A stolen credit card. “The blockchain identifies who has bitcoins… that doesn’t mean there can’t be fraud though,” he told the newspaper. “I had seven bitcoins stolen from me through fraud. Somebody bought them from me online through a credit card and they cancelled the credit card payment. It was that easy! And it was from a stolen credit card number so you can never get it back.”Wozniak added that he initially bought the bitcoins as an experiment, curious if one day he could use the cryptocurrency instead of cash or credit cards. Still, he told CNBC in 2017 that he bought them at $700 a piece, after watching bitcoin rise from a price of $70 many moons ago. However, he’s pretty much sold them all, keeping just a handful — mainly because he doesn’t care about the wild rollercoaster that is bitcoin’s price. With an estimated net worth of $100 million, Wozniak doesn’t really need to worry.[embedded content]last_img read more

A Flawed Study Shows How Little We Understand Crisprs Effects

first_imgHow exactly does Crispr work? Here’s everything you need to know Regulators might be A-OK with gene-edited crops, but animals? Not so much. More on Gene Editing Researchers employing any of these assays will also need to team up with bioinformatics experts to analyze the resulting data—no off-the-shelf software can do the job. One new startup called Beacon Genomics is offering a fee-for-service model to run custom code on tagged double-stranded break data, but it and other commercialized tools are only just coming online. The gold standard for judging Crispr’s messiness doesn’t yet exist.That has left the leading Crispr companies to develop their own. According to an Intellia spokesperson, the gene-editing firm is working with the US Food and Drug Administration and the National Institutes of Standards and Technology to help set such specifications. “We have developed a comprehensive workflow that uses a combination of both genome-wide assays and targeted sequencing to look for potential off-target mutations,” the company wrote in an email. “We always include appropriate controls in our experiments, such as sequencing of cells that are not edited.”Editas similarly employs both targeted and genome-wide approaches. Additionally, its scientists have developed a new way to evaluate Crispr edits called Uni-Directional Targeted Sequencing which can identify and quantify structural changes beyond cuts, deletions, and insertions. “We believe UDiTaS not only will help us continue to apply the most rigorous, unbiased approach to analyzing the specificity of Crispr medicines in the field, but also help enable the broader field of genome editing through important standard setting,” says Vic Myer, chief technology officer at Editas.Crispr Therapeutics declined discussing its off-target evaluation tools for this article. But the company, which could begin collecting safety data from their first clinical trials as soon as later this year, may be in the best position to amass the kinds of evidence that Crispr will ultimately need to pass regulatory muster and make its way to patients. If it does come up with an industry-leading standard, now that’s something that should have a real effect on its valuation. To do that, you can upgrade to whole exome or whole genome sequencing—but those come with huge price tags. Sequencing costs might be going down, but they’re still the most expensive part of these assays, running up to $10,000 depending on the number of samples and level of resolution. A cheaper option would be to biochemically label double-stranded breaks, so you can see all the places Crispr snaps the DNA in two. But this method has its own limitations-—it doesn’t pick up earlier breaks that have already been repaired. The USDA just paved the way for Crispr’d foods to start showing up soon in grocery stores. Biotech has been betting big on Crispr, the gene-editing technique that promises to snip away some of humanity’s worst diseases. But last May, a small case study suggested the much-hyped technology might actually be quite dangerous—and pop went the Crispr bubble, briefly tanking shares of Crispr companies like Editas Medicine, Intellia Therapeutics, and Crispr Therapeutics.It was an overreaction, as so many market spikes and dips turn out to be; the company CEOs were quick to push back, and scientists and journalists soon pointed out flaws in the paper that misconstrued cause and effect. After nearly a year of continued criticisms, and failures to reproduce the results, the authors conceded that the skeptics might be right. Last week, the journal that published the paper, Nature Methods, finally retracted it.But that doesn’t mean that Crispr has been given the all-clear. The now-retracted paper claimed that Crispr caused nearly 2,000 unexpected mutations—ten times previously observed off-target rates—in two mice that it cured of blindness. But just as that evidence should never have been enough to squash Crispr’s clinical potential, neither does retracting said paper prove it. If anything, the kerfuffle just proves how young the field is. There’s so little published data about the potential for Crispr’s unintended cuts that this single, flawed paper had an outsized effect on perception of the field. Can Crispr be safely used in humans? Retraction or not, it’s still an open question.Not that scientists haven’t been trying to answer it. But developing trustworthy methods to detect off-target mutations has proven challenging. So far, they’ve come with about a half-dozen approaches; the fastest and most economical is something called targeted sequencing, where researchers look for rogue snips in areas an algorithm suspects they might show up. But that method won’t detect mutations that pop up in utterly unexpected places.last_img read more

Indias National Congress president vows to decriminalize gay sex

GAYSTARNEWS- Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… The National Congress president, Rahul Gandhi, has now vowed to remove the colonial-era law Section 377 that criminalizes homosexuality.In 2012, the Delhi High Court ruled to abolish Section 377 based on an argument of a privacy. That decision was overturned in the 2013 Supreme Court ruling.And ever since, Indians have been forced to live under a rule that states the only form of sex allowed is in the missionary position between a married heterosexual couple.National Congress president vows to decriminalize gay sex in IndiaGandhi made the vow when speaking with trans activist Akkai Padmashali in Bengaluru.Rahul Gandhi is the president of the National Congress of IndiaShe said, during the informal chat, that Congress was in favor of removing the law.This is a similar statement to what some ministers have said in the past. And as Gandhi’s party are not in power, it is unlikely he will be able to impact change in government.Section 377 will likely be decided in the Supreme CourtThe question of Section 377, and whether it will be repealed, will likely remain with the Supreme Court.center_img It is tabled to be heard by the three judges, but a hearing date has not yet been scheduled.Activists are hoping the Supreme Court will rule based on the recent ruling on privacy.In August 2017, the Supreme Court ruled against ID cards.The ruling also stated: ‘The rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender population cannot be construed to be “so-called rights”…‘Their rights are not “so-called” but are real rights founded on sound constitutional doctrine.’Justice Chandrachud made a statement on Section 377.‘Sexual orientation is an essential attribute of privacy. Discrimination against an individual on the basis of sexual orientation is deeply offensive to the dignity and self-worth of the individual.‘Equality demands that that the sexual orientation of each individual in society must be protected on an even platform.’In 2016, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor brought the Indian Penal Code (Amendment) Bill seeking changes in Section 377 but it was defeated in the Lok Sabha.Got a news tip?

This gay dad made an app to stop his kid and you

Jason Plotch and his family | Photos: Courtesy of Jason Plotch eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) ‘Dad, when can I get my own cellphone?’ I knew the day would come when our little girl would ask for her first cell phone. I just wasn’t prepared for her to start asking at six years old.Natalie is just like any other only child growing up in Brooklyn with two gay dads. She’s animated, opinionated, sweet, smart, and, of course independent.My partner Clint and I were working full-time. I was working around the clock on my last startup, a social app called ‘Hyper.’ Clint, a high school teacher, would come home drained after teaching seniors all day.I would go to work trying to figure out how to get teens to spend as much time on their phones as possible, and Clint would go to work trying to get them to put their phones away.What we weren’t doing a good job on was monitoring our own child’s tech usage. Both in terms of how much time she was spending on her iPad and what content she was consuming.What began as a parenting crutch for us to get some quiet time under the guise of Natalie playing educational games and watching educational videos slowly devolved into brainless YouTube for hours on end.It was all she wanted to do. What’s worse, she was spending most of her time watching other kids open up presents and toys. (This is seriously a thing).‘We became a family of screen zombies’Before we knew it, she was falling behind in reading in her first-grade class, and we had all turned into a family of screen zombies. The scene was all too familiar.Day and night we would each be on a laptop, cell phone, iPad, TV, or a combination of all of the above. I was the biggest addict of us all.I was constantly checking for ‘phantom’ updates and notifications that weren’t even there. Blindly scrolling through Apple News and liking pics on Instagram. At dinner, I was barely present at all with my friends or my family.At some point last year, my team decided it was time to shut down Hyper. It just never caught on. Ever since, between all of the scrolling and swiping, reading and liking, I was brainstorming ideas for my next product. What would it take to be successful?One day, a partner from the old team said to me, ‘You know what would be cool? If we helped people use their phones less.’I looked at the human-shaped lump hiding under a blanket on the couch where I knew my daughter was watching YouTube videos and decided it was time we got to work. Once I wanted to get everyone addicted to checking their phones. Now I wanted to get them to put their phones away and focus more on each other.‘Only a rainbow penguin can solve this’I started researching and reading everything I could about tech addiction, focusing, and studying. I couldn’t believe how topical this was.According to Jean Twenge, generational psychologist and author of iGen, the average teen checks their phone more than 80 times a day and spends two and a half hours a day texting.Researchers are just now beginning to really study and understand the social implications of all of this tech addiction. If it is like this now, I wonder – as a dad – how much of Natalie’s future high school social interactions will happen through a screen.Slowly but surely, a new app called Hatch was born.The game uses a positive behavior reinforcement system by rewarding users for putting down their phones with fun, mysterious creatures that hatch out of a space egg. Now, when I want to be present with my family, I open the app and set a timer for 20 minutes.While the clock ticks down, I can have a wonderful conversation over dinner. (Or read, or stretch, or any other productive task). When the time is up, I open the app, click ‘hatch’, and discover a new friend. For the month of June, we even added a touch of Pride to the app.Our wonderful animator created a special rainbow penguin we affectionately call Jort. Natalie just gleefully hatched one for the first time tonight after she finished 30 minutes of uninterrupted reading. This would have been an impossible task six months ago.Fighting technology with technology is a funny idea. For now, it remains to be seen if our new app will be a commercial success. But what I can tell you is that family dinner, which used to be oriented around the TV, has migrated to the dinner table.Instead of sitting side by side, playing on our phones while we eat, face to screen, we are chatting, face to face. And that’s the way it should be.For more information about Hatch, click here.Words: Jason PlotchThese trans dads want you to know you can be trans and start a family Why I sobbed tears of joy when Trinidad and Tobago decriminalized homosexualityGay guys tell their horror stories from vacations with their straight friendsHow do I convince my mum to accept my sexuality and wish me happiness?Read the full article on Gaystarnews:  :https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/this-gay-dad-made-an-cute-app-to-stop-his-daughter-and-you-getting-addicted-to-tech/ Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… GAYSTARNEWS-last_img read more

Big street protest will call for LGBTI book ban to be changed

first_imgGAYSTARNEWS- Earlier this week it was revealed Home Affairs Bureau had caved into pressure from a lobby group to remove ten titles from its shelves. It complained the ‘Book Collection of the Children’s Libraries that Promote Homosexuality’ shouldn’t be publicly accessible. The books’ topics ranged from rainbow families to gender identity.Home Affairs agreed to store the books on a ‘closed shelf’ where people could only access them after they directly asked library staff. But it refused to remove the books entirely from libraries because the books’ topics were ‘neutral’ and public had a right to information.For the LGBTI community however, that is not good enough.A coalition of organizations has come together to protest the decision. They have called the coalition, United Front for Open Libraries. ‘The practices of the Home Affairs Bureau and the Leisure and Cultural Services Department are puzzling and contradictory. Since the books are “neutral”, why do they still need to be kept in closed stack?’ United Front said in a statement.United Front is planning a series of actions to reverse the decision including a protest.The group and its supporters plan to protest outside the Hong Kong Central Library at 3pm on 24 June. There they will submit petition letters and written statements to the officers concerned.#FreeMyLibraryAfter the news broke of the library’s decision, a social media campaign to overturn it has started to gain momentum.The #FreeMyLibrary has garnered support from LGBTI activists around the world.Solidarity for Hong Kong Books for ALL our children #FreeMyLibrary pic.twitter.com/uT9M2nuwjQ— Jo Hirst (@thegenderfairy1) June 22, 2018 Hong Kong’s LGBTI community and its allies will take to the streets this Sunday to protest the removal of LGBTI-themed children’s books from public libraries.

Parish council invited by bus operator to save rural service from the

first_imgGet the biggest Daily stories by emailSubscribeSee our privacy noticeThank you for subscribingSee our privacy noticeCould not subscribe, try again laterInvalid EmailA bus operator planning to axe a rural service in the wake of subsidy cuts has invited a parish council to take it on. D&G Bus’ 15 service between Newport and Stone serves several hamlets and villages in the Eccleshall area, as well as Norbury Junction, Hopton, Salt, Sandon and Hilderstone. But it is set to finish at the end of March following subsidy cuts by Staffordshire County Council, Eccleshall Parish Council was told at its meeting last week. The parish is also set to lose its number 12 service, which currently runs between Newport and Longton via Woodseaves, Norbury, Yarnfield, Walton and Stone. But the number 13 service between Stone and Stafford, which calls at Eccleshall and Norton Bridge, is set to be retained, alongside the number 14 service between Hanley and Stafford. D&G Bus’ Chris Almond, who spoke about the changes at Eccleshall Parish Council, said: “There was a Staffordshire County Council consultation last year about the funding of bus service. The council went for the option which sees the retention of service 14. Traders’ relief as D&G rescue axed Sunday bus service “The 13 operates via Norton Bridge; and because Norton Bridge used to have a railway station about 40 per cent of the funding came from the Department for Transport. The funding was due to end in October 2017 but has been extended until the end of March 2019. “I am assuming there is interest in the 15, with it serving the Offleys, Croxton and Norbury, and some people did contact us to express their concerns. At the moment, unfortunately, that service is due to finish. Watch why this bus parked up and was making a real racket “Audley is in a similar situation and they are offering to fund their service by making a small increase in their parish precept. We do have the option to provide a service that covers the villages from Loggerheads on a Saturday, because we have spare capacity, and we could run services to Stafford for £180 a day, which comes to £9,360.” Eccleshall Parish Council chairman Graham Garner said: “There is a possibility, if the council can find some funding. We need to look at it and get back to you.”last_img read more

June 3, 2010 – More than 70,000 people in the U.S. were diagnosed with cancer of the bladder in 2009, with an estimated 14,000 people dying from the disease, according to the National Cancer Institute. The disease is difficult to detect, and the most common, initial sign is red-colored urine, which calls for urine cytology and cystoscopy.The difficulties in diagnosing bladder cancer and a high rate of recurrence led to the development of Cysview cystoscopy. Cysview (hexaminolevulinate HCl), an optical imaging agent, is injected into the bladder through a catheter. Cysview accumulates differentially in malignant cells. Cysview is used with the Karl Storz D-Light C Photodynamic Diagnostic (PDD) system to perform cystoscopy with the blue light setting (Mode 2) as an adjunct to the white light setting (Mode 1). When illuminated with blue light from the cystoscope, the cancerous lesions emit red fluorescence, highlighting the malignant areas.The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently cleared Cysview for the detection of non-muscle-invasive papillary cancer of the bladder in patients with known or suspected bladder cancer. The optical imaging agent is indicated for use in the cystoscopic detection of non-muscle-invasive papillary cancer of the bladder among patients suspected or known to have lesion(s) on the basis of a prior cystoscopy. “Phase III clinical data supplied with the New Drug Application demonstrated a significantly improved rate of detection of non-muscle-invasive papillary cancer using Cysview cystoscopy compared to standard white light cystoscopy alone in patients with non-muscle-invasive papillary bladder cancer,” said Eric Cantor, M.D., head of medical affairs for GE Healthcare’s Medical Diagnostics Business in the Americas. “The use of Cysview and blue light cystoscopy enables physicians to detect bladder tumors more accurately than with standard white light technology. The introduction of Cysview is a reflection of our commitment to providing innovative advances in diagnostic oncology.”“Data from the pivotal 305 trial demonstrates that Cysview cystoscopy significantly improves detection of papillary bladder cancer, leading to a more complete resection of bladder cancer and significantly improving disease-free survival when compared to white light cystoscopy,” said Professor H. Barton Grossman, MD, Professor, Department of Urology at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, and lead investigator of the trial. “We found this to be true both for patients with initial and recurrent disease.”The standard bladder cancer diagnostic procedure combines urinary cytology and white light cystoscopy. Cytology is non-invasive, using a urine sample to detect cancer cells. This provides specificity and sensitivity in detecting high-grade lesions, but provides no information on the location and extent of the disease. If the test is positive for cancer cells, the next step is direct visual inspection of the urothelium and mucosa with white light cystoscopy to localize the tumors. In addition, during this procedure the physician can perform a transurethral resection of suspicious areas of the bladder. Finally, the samples can be tested to determine if they are malignant.For more information: www.gehealthcare.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享center_img The top piece of content in July was a video interview explaining how Princess Margaret Cancer Center is using machine learning to create automated treatment plans.
