MIAMI (WSVN) – A City of Miami Police officer accused of kicking a handcuffed suspect in the head has been acquitted.A Miami-Dade County judge dismissed the misdemeanor assault charge against Miami Police Officer Mario Figueroa, Wednesday.Figueroa could be seen running up to and kicking at the suspect’s head but never connecting in video footage of the arrest back in May of 2018.A body camera captured the officer saying, “If I wanted to kick you, you know I would have kicked you.”Figueroa’s defense lawyer said he acted properly against a dangerous carjacking suspect, who had led officers on a high-speed chase.Figueroa was fired after the incident and is now hoping to get his job back.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

U.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan, in his Washington, D.C. office. Photo: Liz RuskinAlaska Sen. Dan Sullivan, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, was harshly critical of the Iran nuclear agreement in 2015. He said then lifting sanctions would fuel the economy of a country that sponsors terrorism.Listen now“Billions are likely to be used to pump up the terror machine around the world and target American citizens,” Sullivan said on the Senate floor in 2015.Now, President Trump has mandated that Congress decide what to do with the agreement. Sullivan still doesn’t like the arrangement. He said it’s too lenient on Iran. But Sullivan said the U.S. should not back out of the deal.“I think a better way to deal with it right now is to vigorously enforce it,” Sullivan said Friday in a phone interview.Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and other top security officials say Iran is in technical compliance. Sullivan said Iran has violated the letter and spirit of the deal, similar to what President Trump said in a speech Friday. Sullivan said the U.S. should give Iran time to change its ways.“And then we should undertake what President Obama and Secretary Kerry said we would do, which is apply snap-back sanctions,” Sullivan said.In 2015, though, Sullivan mocked that as an unworkable solution when the Obama administration proposed it.“I know what we’ve heard from the administration,” Sullivan said in 2015. “‘Don’t worry. If there’s a violation of this agreement these sanctions will just snap back into place. They’ll snap back. No problem. Piece of cake.’”At that time, Sullivan said it can take years to impose sanctions and get companies and other nations to divest.One reason Sullivan gives for staying with the agreement now is to retain America’s leadership position with allies who also signed the deal. He said several European countries are more interested in doing business in Iran than they are in containment.
(PhysOrg.com) — Critics of the Space Program can utter a sigh of relief. Finally, an innovation with a good suds head on it. A colloborative effort between the Russian Academy of Science, Okayama University and Sopporo Breweries in Japan has developed a beer that uses 100-percent barley grown on the International Space Station. The barley was grown on the ISS during a five-month period along with lettuce, wheat and peas as part of a life-sustaining long term growing project.

Sopporo Breweries is not selling the 100-liters of Space Barley Beer it has created. Instead, 30 Japanese couples have been selected to taste Space Barley at a special event in Tokyo in January. Sopporo´s Junichi Ichikawa, a managing director of strategies for the brewery, says the Space Barley brand is unique insofar as it´s top Black Label brand uses additional ingredients like rice. Space Barley is made completely with the ISS barley. There is no commercially made beer like the Space Barley Brand. Beer is not included in the ISS menu due to the alcohol content and its potential for creating a gaseous product of digestion. Sopporo Brewery is hoping the Space Barley product could eventually become available for astronauts to sip a cool one while spending months aboard the space station. The news of the Space Barley Beer came about when it was discovered that a cargo of miso and mackerel, seaweed soup and green tea was sent to the International Space Station recently to sustain astronauts. According to a Russian cosmonaut, potatoes can be eventually grown on the ISS. He is quoted as saying, “pototoes can be grown for food, not for vodka production.” Sopporo Breweries is one of the oldest beer producers world-wide. It began in 1876 under a different name and under the direction of Seibei Nakagawa who studied beer making in Germany. The first beer label, Sopporo Lager reflects the Pioneer´s symbol, the Northern Star. © 2008 PhysOrg.com This document is subject to copyright.

Where Colin was RightAFC predictions are looking good – Colin is looking good with his AFC picks. Even though he swung and missed on the Colts, he had the Patriots, Raiders, Steelers and Chiefs as his playoff teams. He thought the Ravens and Titans would be first out. 4 out of 5 isn’t bad. Colin was right.Where Colin was WrongNFC predictions are looking bad – Colin has been open about his failures picking the NFC this year. He completely missed on the Cowboys phenomenon, and had the Panthers and Cardinals as two of his top three teams. His top seed was Green Bay, who is fighting for a playoff spot down the stretch. Colin was wrong on the NFC. Where Colin was RightRex Ryan is probably done in Buffalo – Rex Ryan is a holdover from a past era when teams won games by beating up the other team and figuring out the details later. It’s not a “youse guys” league anymore, it’s a details league. The best NFL coaches are the X’s and O’s guys that are good with quarterbacks, not the tough guys like Ryan. Colin knew Rex’s routine would grow old in Buffalo, and it has. He still likes Rex, and thinks he can be a great coordinator, or television analyst, but his days as a head coach are over. Colin was right.Rex Ryan addresses the rumors of his imminent firing.[NBC] pic.twitter.com/ME14ZxY9Tl— Funhouse (@RNs_Funhouse) December 12, 2016Where Colin was WrongThe Giants just keep winning – Colin hasn’t been alone in his questioning of the Giants as a fraudulent front runner. Head coach Ben McAdoo has taken heat for his Cheesecake Factory menu play call sheet, but they’re 9-4, and just beat the Cowboys for the second time this season. GM Jerry Reese hit home runs all over the place in free agency with defensive acquisitions like Olivier Vernon and Janoris Jenkins. The Giants are in practically every game and deserve the credit. Colin was wrong.?? Odell Beckham’s touchdown is the difference.

Aaron Rodgers was playing poorly and hadn’t shown any signs of life for a year. The Packers whole team has gotten healthy after a string of injuries. The secondary is close to full strength, and Jordy Nelson finally looks like he’s all the way back from his knee injury. The Packers are hot, and no one wants to go into Lambeau right now. Mike McCarthy deserves a ton of credit for basically rebuilding the offense on the fly with scrap heap running backs and unknown wide receivers. Colin bailed too soon.sonofthebronx: Aaron Rodgers zips this touchdown pass past the Eagles d… ESPN Monday Night … https://t.co/s9zDFyMn7z pic.twitter.com/bx9C5vsbb5— FanSportsClips (@FanSportsClips) November 29, 2016 Where Colin was RightThe Broncos are struggling – Colin predicted the Broncos would go 6-10 at the beginning of the year. He thought they would take a significant step back from their Super Bowl form because they’d be too inconsistent offensively, even by their standards, to make a playoff run. After a hot start, the Broncos have cooled off. You can’t win games on defense alone forever. At some point, you need to put up some points. Denver is limping to the finish. Colin said they wouldn’t be a playoff team, and it looks like he was right after all.It was an interesting post game locker room. #Broncos Aqib Talib was hot after Titans WR Harry Douglas low hit on Chris Harris Jr. pic.twitter.com/cZFE1f2x0V— Kami Carmann (@KamiCarmann) December 11, 2016 Advertisement Every Monday in The Herd, it’s time for Colin to count the wins and the losses from another week of predictions in Where Colin was right, where Colin was wrong.This Week Colin was right on his preseason AFC predictions, but way off in the NFC. He was right on the Broncos taking a step back, but wrong on the Giants, and he buried the Packers prematurely. And, in the coaching ranks, Colin knew Rex Ryan would wear out his welcome in Buffalo, and that Doug Pederson wasn’t up to the job in Philly.Here’s the right and the wrong from the past week. Where Colin was WrongThe Rockets are 17-7 – Colin has never fully bought into Rockets GM Daryl Morey’s 100% analytics based approach. He thinks in the NBA, personality is a huge factor that can’t be measured on a spreadsheet. He also viewed the Mike D’Antoni hire as a move that would produce more points, but not necessarily more wins. But, they’re 17-7, have won six-straight, and they’ve beaten the Warriors and the Spurs on the road already this season. James Harden is having an MVP type of year, and Patrick Beverly is a lock down perimeter defender. Colin was wrong on the Rockets.ICYMI: Highlights of the #Rockets big win over Dallas!?Harden: 18 pts, 9 reb, 16 ast?Gordon: 18 pts, 6/9 3Pt?Capela: 13 pts, 10 reb pic.twitter.com/v5s8uS2vqb— Houston Rockets (@HoustonRockets) December 12, 2016 Where Colin was RightDoug Pederson looks lost – Pederson got the Philly job, largely based on his credibility as a coordinator with Andy Reid in Kansas City. After a hot start, where he and rookie quarterback Carson Wentz were the toast of the league, the Eagles have taken a nosedive. Wentz has regressed, and is a shell of his early season self. Pederson is overwhelmed as a game-manager and doesn’t throw the ball down the field. Philly is a rough town for your first coaching gig, Pederson looks destined to get chewed up and spit out.When asked by Howard Eskin if everybody gave maximum effort Doug Pederson answered “not everybody” pic.twitter.com/XYlsY35HOM— The Bitter Birds (@AdrianFedkiw) December 5, 2016 Where Colin was RightLorenzo Romar is a bad game coach – Colin has beat this drum before. He thinks University of Washington Huskies basketball coach Lorenzo Romar is an elite recruiter, but a below average game coach. This year he has the #1 NBA prospect, Markelle Fultz, and he’s already lost to Yale this year! Again, Yale! The Huskies lose more games to less talented teams than anyone in the nation. Romar doesn’t get to the tournament, most years he’s lucky to make the NIT. Colin was right.
7 min read September 5, 2018 Enroll Now for Free Technology has been a key enabler in the business world for decades. But having the fastest new laptop, the latest productivity tools on your computer and around-the-clock availability via your smartphone aren’t even advantages anymore. They’re baseline expectations.However, there are new tech revolutions on the horizon, and they may be more transformative than anything we’ve experienced yet. Groundbreaking advancements in artificial intelligence, machine learning and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are destined to shape the business landscape for years to come.Think of artificial intelligence and machine learning as the super-brains of modern business. Constantly learning and crunching data at a higher speed than any human, they help companies make sense of gigantic data loads quickly. They turn data into action in real time, automating and optimizing time-intensive tasks to help businesses reduce risk and maximize efficiency.And they work best when paired with the IIoT. Using a symphony of sensors, wireless connections, cloud services and on-site computing devices, the IIoT is capable of collecting new forms of data — and better forms of data — from the machines and processes in an organization. Combined with artificial intelligence and machine learning, the IIoT can provide insight into business operations, predict problems before they occur and unlock new revenue streams.For many businesses, these technologies are as confusing, intimidating and abstract as they are powerful. It’s difficult for any organization to adopt technology that everyone knows about but very few of its employees have actually used. And of course, technology deployments shouldn’t be rushed into, especially when the future of your business is at stake.Despite differences in the details of every deployment, many organizations run into similar barriers. A few of the common hurdles are seen again and again across several industries, but there are ways your organization can avoid them.Don’t confuse “cool tech” with solving a problem.This may sound counterintuitive, but you should ignore the “tech” during the planning stages of a tech deployment. While everybody wants a state-of-the-art setup with all the latest bells and whistles, planning a major deployment should start with a huge non-tech question: What business problems does your company want to solve?Finding the answer to that question should be a collaborative effort. To ensure you get it right, you will need input from several departments in your organization, not just the IT department or the engineering team. All the key business decision-makers should be involved, including your executives, your sales and marketing leads, your business development team and your analytics and research teams.Related: Five Leadership Characteristics That Entrepreneurs NeedOnce you have defined your business goals, make sure your IT department and engineering teams understand that those goals are the key drivers for a successful implementation. Getting a complex system up and running can be a major achievement, but it won’t be worth the effort unless it solves real problems. Otherwise, you’re sinking a lot of time, work and money into a “solution” that doesn’t solve anything.Unfortunately, a lot of companies run into this problem. According to a recent survey from Cisco, many tech deployments suffer from unclear business goals: Even when the IT department delivered a successful technology implementation, those solutions often failed to address key business needs.Don’t give up too early — and get the right kind of help.In the case of a big tech deployment, the “deer in headlights” effect can take hold quickly. Your team may be installing, upgrading or servicing thousands of devices in multiple locations. The intimidation factor — and the estimated costs — can stop a project dead in its tracks.Seeking out an experienced partner (rather than just a product vendor) can make all the difference. Rather than pushing products and services on you, a good partner will understand the entire universe of solutions for your needs, work with you on identifying opportunities to save and help tailor a deployment for your business needs.In an IIoT deployment, look for partners that have experience in real-world deployments. It’s even better if their business model aligns with your success; an “emotional joint venture” is what you need, and a good partner will be incentivized to make you succeed. They won’t just sell you a solution and walk away!Related: How to Start an Internet of Things CompanyUp-front investments can be kept reasonable through a “pay as you grow” model. A good integration partner can help you cut costs through a deployment that unfolds in stages. If your organization has a lot of specialized legacy equipment, such as manufacturing machines that are very expensive to replace, the right partner can identify add-on sensors and modular solutions that will give it state-of-the-art capabilities.The process of minimizing risk doesn’t end when your new technology is up and running. Many organizations don’t have the on-staff skills needed to troubleshoot and maintain their new technology ecosystem. This is another area in which an active integration partner can help: They can work with you to provide long-term support, devise a long-term plan for your deployment and help fill your organization’s technological skills gaps.Don’t wait for competitors to make the first move.In the case of new technology, it may seem wise to take a “wait and see” approach. Your existing systems and processes may have pain points and limitations, but at least you’re familiar with them. It’s the old “better the devil you know” mentality, as the status quo is a comfort zone.As such, many companies wait for a “trigger event”– evidence that a competitor is using new technology to thrive — before considering a major implementation of their own. It seems like a safe and measured approach, but it can put you in a constant state of catch-up.Instead, you should proactively explore ways to use technology and, more importantly, technologies available at low risk. Explore innovative business models to improve your business results, while minimizing the risk of high up-front investments. Otherwise, that leisurely “wait and see” approach turns into a mad scramble to implement the latest and greatest technology. Organizations rarely make the best decisions when they’re in panic mode.Related: 5 Scenarios Where Panic Can Destroy Your StartupSo even if your company is years away from pursuing a major move, you should begin exploring your options immediately. After all, any real partner should improve your own business processes with the right combination of technology and minimal-risk business models. Doing it right requires plenty of time and input.Once you’ve settled on the right solution and project road map, you’ll be able to execute that deployment clearly and smoothly and with ample guidance. You’ll be able to tailor the deployment to your own timeline, and you’ll be addressing your own organizational needs. It leads to better results than deploying technology as a competitive reaction.

People at high risk of HIV will be able to get a three month prescription for PrEP. They will also get a sexual health check when they visit their GP for their prescription.PrEP will cost AU$39.50 (US$30) monthly on the PBS.‘PrEP is an essential piece of the puzzle, but to drive HIV to very low levels, we will need co-ordinated leadership and additional resources for the Australian HIV response,’ O’Donnell said.‘Investment in HIV prevention makes excellent financial sense.

Want to share your story? Email us . Today Federal Health Minister, Greg Hunt, announced it would be available on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) from 1 April. The PBS provides a list of subsidized medicines to Australians, so they are more affordable.That means the cost of the treatment will become much more affordable for those wanting to take it.Until now the cost of PrEP in Australia was prohibitively expensive forcing people to either import it from overseas or join one of many state-based medical trials.Major advance on ending HIV‘Having PrEP available at an affordable price through the PBS is a huge advance,’ said Darryl O’Donnell, chief executive of the Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations (AFAO).‘This will drive a substantial reduction in transmission and allow us to turbo-charge the Australian HIV response.’ PrEP to be publicly subsidized in Australia, but not everyone will be able to afford itAustralia will likely make PrEP more affordable tomorrowNew Zealand’s getting PrEP and it will cost about $1.20 a monthRead the full article on Gaystarnews: :https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/prep-will-subsidized-people-australia-1-april/ eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us)
A new report says Apple will launch a foldable iPad as early as next year. We find it doubtful.Image: MashableBy Stan Schroeder2019-07-05 15:11:00 UTC There’s a (really slim) chance that Apple might launch a foldable iPad. The rumor comes from IHS Markit analyst Jeff Lin (via Economic Daily News via 9to5Mac), who claims Apple is quietly working on such a device with plans to launch it as soon as next year.Details about the folding iPad are slim: Apparently, it will support 5G, and will have a screen nearly as big as the MacBook, but we don’t know any details on the folding mechanism, the device’s size when folded, screen resolution etc. The rumor, while far-fetched, isn’t completely out of the realm of what’s possible. Apple did file patents for a foldable device with a flexible display, and its competitors, including Samsung and Huawei, have announced foldable phones (though the launch of either didn’t exactly go as planned). It’s certainly possible to launch a foldable tablet, and in fact it already sort of exists — Lenovo’s Yoga Book fits the bill, though you could also call it a dual-screened laptop. However, I doubt Apple will launch such a device as early as next year. First, it’d be easier to trust this new report if it had more details about the device. Furthermore, some bits don’t make sense — for example, the notion that this new iPad would be revolutionary because it would have a screen size almost as big as the MacBook product line. Apple already sells the iPad Pro, which has a 12.9-inch screen and offers more screen real estate than some MacBooks. Also, given Samsung and Huawei’s troubles with their foldable phones, it’s probably too early for Apple, who simply cannot afford such shenanigans, to adopt the technology. Finally, while I do see a use case for a foldable iPad, I think it’s a very slim one at this point. My argument is similar to the one I made against foldable phones earlier this year: It’s a lot of trouble for a really small benefit. A phone that folds into a smallish tablet comes with a number of drawbacks (it’s heavier and fatter) that negate the advantages. A tablet that folds into a smaller tablet (note that we don’t even know whether the foldable iPad would fold outwards on inwards) could be easier to carry, perhaps even pocketable, while potentially having a nice, large, Retina display. While that sounds nice, it’s pretty much where the benefits end. Sure, you could use the lower portion of the screen as the keyboard, but I’ve tried Lenovo’s Yoga Book and its keyboard is dreadful to type on, and I don’t see any tech breakthrough that would alleviate the issue in the near future. You could use one portion of the screen for drawing with an Apple Pencil, and use the other for a preview, but you could also do that on a regular iPad in a split screen. In fact, besides making the device more practical to lug around, the foldable screen offers few benefits over a single large one. On the other hand, if Apple were to experiment with a foldable screen, it’d perhaps be safer to do it with an iPad than the far more popular iPhone. For that reason alone, I do believe we’ll see a foldable tablet from Apple sometime in the future, but I don’t think that future is as near as next year.

The report, “Automating and Enhancing Processes through Voice in Desktop and Back Office Environments,” explains that although adoption of PC-based speech recognition is not widespread, the technology has found its niche in the healthcare market, where automation and cost savings are key drivers.Tight budgets and the need for accurate patient records are forcing healthcare providers to automate processes with speech recognition, said the report. In order to reduce the error rate in diagnosis and ensure information is recorded efficiently, healthcare providers are adopting electronic health records (EHRs). Using speech recognition with digital dictation systems, to dictate notes directly into EHRs, means that doctors can update information faster and with lower error rates. Speech recognition is also being used for medical transcription, easing pressure on transcriptionists and allowing healthcare providers to save on staffing costs, said the report.

Related posts:Costa Rica humiliates the United States 4-0 in World Cup qualifier Costa Rica returns with full-strength lineup in last step toward World Cup qualifying Costa Rica scores key victory over Trinidad & Tobago in World Cup Qualifying Costa Rica heads into must-win game against United States The last time Costa Rica lined up against the United States, a nightmare unfolded on Chicago’s Soldier Field where theU.S. beat La Sele 4-0 in the Copa América group stages.Now, Costa Rica has a chance to avenge the June beatdown by getting a home win that could seriously jeopardize U.S. chances of qualifying for the World Cup. After losing to Mexico at home Friday, the U.S. comes to San José’s National Stadium looking for a win in a city where it’s 0-8-1 all-time.The Ticos will look to keep it that way and remain first in CONCACAF’s six-team Hexagonal group.Following a key road win at Trinidad & Tobago to start the last round of World Cup qualifying, Costa Rica can make another crucial step towards Russia in 2018 with a win against the United States Tuesday night.Unlike the June meeting, Costa Rica will be well-equipped in goal with star keeper Keylor Navas. Though Navas wasn’t called to duty much in Friday’s 2-0 win, he should see more shots on goal from a U.S. team that wants to keep an aggressive pace on offense.“It’s always great to play the United States, but no matter who the opponent is, our goal is to classify for the World Cup,” Navas said at a press conference Monday. “We have to enjoy it, but still take it seriously, because they have a great team.”Defense-mindedCoach Óscar Ramírez will again be down three key center backs on his five-man backline. Normal starters Giancarlo González and Óscar Duarte were left off the call-up list and now Francisco Calvo, a starter Friday, will remain out after leaving the Trinidad & Tobago game with a leg injury.It will be interesting to see if the defense can continue to hold up at home, where it’s allowed just one goal (a penalty kick to Panama) in its three World Cup qualifying games so far.In their June meeting, the U.S. feasted on the center of Costa Rica’s defense, scoring each of its last three goals in virtually the same spot at the top center of the box. La Sele’s backline was routinely out of position and late to get back against a U.S. team that made it a point to slice right at the heart of a soft middle.Ramírez said he expects the U.S. to come out in that same attacking mode Tuesday night.“They’re very aggressive and they’re always competitive,” Ramírez said on Monday at the National Stadium. “They’re going to compete until the end and they’re not going to give you anything until the final whistle.”El capiMuch of the talk since Friday has centered on the status of captain Bryan Ruíz. The 31-year-old midfield star left the Trinidad & Tobago game with what appeared to be a lower leg injury to his right leg. Ruíz has said since then that he expects to be a full go against the U.S., but it’s worth keeping an eye on how long he can play Tuesday night.Even if he needs to come out, the midfield should be in good hands with a pair of emerging veterans. Herediano’s Randall Azofeifa nearly scored early Friday on a set piece that went just a tad too far to the right of the post. He’s played extremely well for Costa Rica under Ramírez and has two goals in the past four games.Fellow midfielder, 32-year-old Christian Bolaños, has been a revelation for La Sele despite his age. He, too, will look to continue his goal-scoring roll, as he’s netted three goals in the past two World Cup qualifiers.That midfield will be called upon to help dictate the game’s rhythm and withhold the easy opportunities and breakaways that led the United States to a blowout win the last time around.After that loss, Ramírez apologized to the fanbase for the lopsided score. On Monday he said the team has made the necessary corrections, rocketing up to 18th in the world in FIFA’s official rankings.“We’re going to be ready for whatever they show,” Ramírez said Monday. “We’re clear in what we’ve practiced and it doesn’t matter if their strategy is balanced or attacking because we’re going to be prepared.”Costa Rica kicks off against the United States at 8 p.m. local time at the National Stadium.

Side impacts to the head can be just as dangerous as frontal impacts, new research suggests, which was published this week in the international scientific journal Soft Matter.A research team from NUI Galway and UCD measured the effects of rotational accelerations (side impacts) of the head, such as those experienced in football headers, boxing hooks and side impacts. They found stretches and stresses in the brain as high as those of linear accelerations (frontal impacts, whiplash).Large motions can occur in the brain when the human head is accelerated violently by an impact, be it accidental or even voluntary as in a football header. The resulting mixture of pressure, stretch, shear and twist can impair neurons and lead to concussion, brain injury and even permanent damage.A lot of research has focused on the effects of linear accelerations (frontal impacts) of the brain, such as those happening in frontal collisions, such as car accidents and American football.Rotational accelerations (side impacts) are in fact as likely to happen in modern life as linear accelerations (frontal impacts). In a frontal collision car accident, the head rotates forward and backwards (whiplash). Similarly, for many football headers, or for uppercuts in combat sports. These sports also involve rotations of the head about the vertical axis or tilting from one side to the other.Linear accelerations are expected to create large stresses and stretches in the direction of the impact. This research shows that rotational accelerations (side impacts) create pressure and forces of the same magnitude in all directions, which could have grave implications for traumatic brain injury.The researchers at NUI Galway and UCD measured the twisting properties of brain matter using advanced torsion techniques. They then fed the data into computer simulations of a rotational acceleration of the head, typical of a boxing punch.Dr Valentina Balbi led the study from NUI Galway (now a Lecturer of Industrial and Applied Mathematics at University of Limerick) with co-authors Professor Michel Destrade, School of Mathematics, Statistics and Applied Mathematics at NUI Galway, and Dr Aisling Ní Annaidh and Dr Antonia Trotta from the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, University College Dublin.Commenting on the findings, Dr Balbi, said: “We found that large shear forces develop in the horizontal plane, as expected. But we also found that a high-pressure level and large vertical forces also develop in the brain, especially in the frontal cortex, as a result of the twisting motion.”Mark Ganly, CEO of Contego Sports, a company that developed the N-Pro Rugby head guard, which is scientifically proven to provide impact protection, said: “We are keenly aware of the dangers of impacts in the game. This research confirms my intuition that it is crucial to protect Rugby players from side impacts as well as from frontal impacts to the head. In my experience, they are just as likely to lead to concussion or mild traumatic brain injury.”To read the full study in the journal Soft Matter, visit: https://doi.org/10.1039/c9sm00131j
Guest post by Steven Roberts, who is head of marketing at Griffith College. A certified data protection officer and Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Marketing, he writes on data protection, strategy and marketing.European regulators appear to have the AdTech industry firmly in their sights. In the past two months, two of Europe’s largest data protection authorities – the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) in Britain and the CNIL in France – issued reports on the sector. Alongside this, consumers are increasingly concerned about the security of their personal data, whilst significant issues remain as to the level of fraud in online advertising, and in particular programmatic ads.This is set within a broader environment of substantial fines for breaches of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The Regulation states that failure to comply can result in penalties of up to €20 million or 4% of global turnover, whichever is greater. In July, the ICO stated its intention to fine British Airways £183 million and the Marriott hotel group £99 million for data privacy breaches.UK and French Regulator ReportsOn 20th June, the ICO report warned ad tech to clean up its act. It outlined several areas of concern regarding the use of personal data in real-time-bidding for programmatic advertising. In particular, it highlighted issues around transparency, lack of clarity in privacy notices, the scale of data creation and sharing, and the reliance on contractual agreements within the supply chain. The report referenced a ‘lack of maturity’ among some participants in what was deemed an extremely complex marketplace involving multiple technologies.In France, the CNIL also targeted online advertising, making it a priority area in its action plan for 2019-2020. The regulator recently issued Google with a fine for €50 million fine for breaches of GDPR. The agency is also due to publish guidelines on the use of online cookies and what constitutes consent on the part of the consumer. Stakeholders will have a grace period of 12 months within which to achieve compliance.Online advertising is big businessThese developments pose a sizeable challenge for the advertising industry. In Ireland, total online advertising spend in 2018 was estimated at €489 million. Facebook and Google dominate the market, with 73% of online spend going to these two tech giants.Globally, digital advertising is forecast to grow from $294 billion this year to $520 billion by 2023, an average annual growth rate of 15%. Analysts expect Amazon to play an increasing role, with its ad revenues forecast to reach $40 billion that same year.The ePrivacy RegulationLooking further ahead, as part of the EU’s commitment to a digital single market, legislative work is ongoing around the introduction of a new ePrivacy Regulation. This will seek to update the 2002 Directive and subsequent amendments in 2009. It will aim to provide more clarity around data protection regarding electronic communications and the use of website cookies, recognising the step change in technology and services that has taken place. The EU originally intended to introduce the ePrivacy Regulation at the same time as GDPR. However, with ongoing lobbying by sectoral groups and differing positions within EU member states, current forecasts suggest the regulation is unlikely to be introduced before 2020.SummaryThe online advertising industry faces a range of challenges – from increased regulatory attention, growing consumer anxiety around how businesses use their personal data, and from marketers concerned about the prevalence of ad fraud. The latest reports from the French and UK data protection authorities indicate that legislative momentum is likely to continue to gather pace over the coming years.Steven Roberts is head of marketing at Griffith College.

WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite The motorist took Diego to his home and took care of him for the night… On Saturday, a story went up on the Ladysmith Gazette website and Facebook page about the lost dog and within 15 minutes of the story going online, the owner contacted the number provided and claimed his beloved pet.The owner says that, “Diego might have slipped out of the yard when I was closing the gate. Diego is a very clever dog and he can even open the gate by himself. He wasn’t really lost, as he was found close to his home.”Diego’s owners are very happy to have him back, as “he is a one-of-a-kind dog and if something bad had happened to him, we would have been horrified”. A brown Husky crossbreed by the name of Diego was picked up by a concerned motorist on Friday night in the Ruby Gailey area after the dog was found wandering around near Monument Primary School.
