A consultant’s report for the Air Guard says testing turned up levels exceeding recommended federal standards in water underneath the base but because the base’s wells are already shut down and nearby city water is being routed to a treatment plant, the contamination doesn’t pose any immediate health risk, Tucson Water officials say.last_img read more

first_img Apple Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross. Here’s how to clean it Microsoft is jumping on the digital health bandwagon. Gety Images For the past couple years, tech companies like Apple, Google and even Facebook have been doing something seemingly against their interests: Encouraging us to stop using them. On Monday, Microsoft joined those companies by encouraging business people to be more mindful of their time too. The new features, built into the company’s Office 365 business productivity service for Windows PCs, Macs and mobile devices, tracks how people use their computers and then displays that information on a dashboard.For example, Microsoft’s software will soon start showing people how often they focused on a task and for how long. And it will also cheer them on if they successfully disconnected after work. You can even set goals for how often you have quiet days, Microsoft said. Read on ZDNet: Microsoft Build 2019: Azure is the star, and Windows is a bit player The new features, announced at the company’s Build developer conference in Seattle, are the latest in a growing trend of tech companies aiming to make us feel better about using their devices and services. They’re doing this by encouraging us to be more mindful about how much of our lives get taken up by technology in the first place. At Apple, this comes as part of a feature called Screen Time, which shows you how often you use your phone and what types of apps you’re using most. You can also set limits on how long you can use specific apps, like Facebook. Google’s Android software for phones and tablets has a tool called Digital Wellbeing that offers similar features. Even Facebook and Instagram, which are often derided as places people zone out and lose hours tapping and scrolling, have a screen time feature. For Microsoft, these features are part of a broader refinement to Microsoft’s Office 365 business software. The suite, which includes access to the company’s popular Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook apps, is used by 180 million people. Microsoft said the new features will be available “in the next few months.”  Aug 31 • iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 Plus: Which iPhone should you buy?

Photo: AFPThe Turkish vice consul to Iraq’s autonomous Kurdish region was among at least two people shot dead Wednesday in the regional capital Arbil, prompting pledges of “retaliation” from Ankara.No group has claimed responsibility for the attack so far, but Turkey is already waging a fierce offensive against Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) bases in northern Iraq.On Wednesday afternoon, at least one gunman fired on Turkish consulate workers in a restaurant in Ainkawa, a northern Arbil neighbourhood that hosts numerous restaurants and the Turkish consulate.”A shooting in front of a restaurant in Arbil left a Turkish consulate employee and a civilian dead, and wounded a third person,” said the Kurdish internal security forces, known as the Asayish.The diplomat was identified by a local police source to AFP as the Turkish vice consul. The source said the attacker fled the scene.A spokesman for the Iraqi foreign ministry confirmed the incident and condemned the attack.Turkey’s foreign ministry said an “employee” at its Arbil consulate was killed in a shooting outside the consulate.”We are continuing our efforts with the Iraqi government and local authorities to find the perpetrators of this attack as quickly as possible,” said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.His spokesman Ibrahim Kalin vowed “the necessary response will be given to those who committed this treacherous attack.”- ‘Heinous’ attack -The Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), which now leads the regional government, enjoys good political and trade relations with Turkey.But one sticking point is the PKK, which operates rear bases across Iraq’s mountainous north.The PKK is classified as a “terrorist” group by Turkey, the United States and the European Union because of the three-decade insurgency it has waged against the Turkish state.Turkey has been conducting a ground offensive and bombing campaign since May in the mountainous northern region to root out PKK pockets.Earlier this month, the PKK announced that one of those raids killed senior PKK leader Diyar Gharib Mohammed along with two other fighters.A spokesman for the PKK’s armed branch denied the group was involved in Wednesday’s shooting.According to Turkish state media, the attacker was dressed in plain clothes and carried two guns when he stormed the restaurant in Ainkawa, a bustling northern district of Arbil.Witnesses in the city said checkpoints had been quickly set up inside and around the neighbourhood.The US embassy slammed the attack as “heinous” and offered its condolences to the Turkish mission, calling for “the defence and safety of foreign diplomats and diplomatic missions in Iraq.”Several rocket attacks have targeted diplomatic missions in Iraq in recent months, including near the US and UK embassies in Baghdad’s “Green Zone.”The US in May ordered all non-essential personnel of its Baghdad embassy and Arbil consulate to leave the country.And in June, protesters gathered outside the Bahraini embassy in Baghdad.Authorities in Iraq, which is witnessing a period of relative calm since declaring victory against the Islamic State group in 2017, have pledged to protect embassies.last_img
Little bublcam places life in spherical perspective

first_img More information: www.kickstarter.com/projects/b … hnology-for-everyonebublcam.com/ © 2013 Phys.org (Phys.org) —Canada-based startup called Bubl Technology, founded in 2011, wants you to imagine being able to capture life in its bublcam, making, as it says, 360 degrees of your world available any time. The company has come up with prototypes of a little baseball-like gadget that is really four cameras arranged in a tetrahedral design, allowing a user to take photos and video. Sean Ramsey, founder and CEO, said the idea for the product was seeded some years ago, while he was working with a company in turn working with Google on a Street View project. Why not create a camera, he thought, to be capable of spherical footage for uses other than mapping? Why not use it for other things, such as panoramic photos? Explore further At the time of this writing, they have garnered $83,391 out of their $100,000 goal with 38 days to go. The target shipping date for the device, priced at over $400, is May next year.

He and other team members started thinking in terms of technology that could support a device that was small, portable,and affordable. For the last two years, the company’s focus has been on the end goal of a market ready spherical camera that captures 100 percent of the spherical range through panoramic photos and videos. The company’s hardware CTO, Dan Mills, explained: “We designed the camera in a tetrahedral [patent pending] orientation…there are no blind spots because each camera overlaps the adjoining camera.” The camera’s form factor is distinctive, as a baseball size device that is light and easy to carry around. Applications potentially, are many, including the use of the bublcam in-real estate, gaming and sports, as well as security and surveillance. The bublcam is capable of recording video at 30fps at 720p or 15fps at 1080p and exports MP4 format.For the casing, the team is using four solid aluminum die-cast structural rings. According to the company, however, the “true innovation of the bublcam is its software that allows a single, 4 quadrant multiplexed image to be stitched into a sphere. We utilize a heat mapped blending process in order to blend the final photos and videos. These are what we like to call digital bubls.”The team continues to work on the device to bring it to market and, at this stage, has fully functional working prototypes. The company has turned to Kickstarter to bring the device to market. “We have been working on bubl for the past two years and we’ve come a long way. But now we need your help,” said the campaign message. “Your support will allow us to initiate tooling, manufacturing and software development so we can make bublcam and our software available to you and the millions of people who have never before had a 360º camera option.” Ricoh shows off omnidirectional camera (w/ video)last_img read more
