Im happy he got paid but sad to see him go Los

first_imgI’m happy he got paid but sad to see him go. “Los Dirty” is one of my favorite Cardinals of all time but, having said that, I would not have gambled to the degree the Browns did. Karlos is going to be 33 next season. At some point in time, age and mileage matter. In the end: Karlos did what he needed to do and the Cardinals did what they needed to do. Welcome to free agency in the Year of Our Lord 2014.Godspeed, Los Dirty. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The Cleveland Browns reached agreement with former Arizona Cardinals linebacker Karlos Dansby. Dansby agreed to a four-year, $24 million deal that includes $14 million guaranteed, according to sources. That last number is what made his departure a fait accompli. The Cardinals could not justify paying him that kind of money when they have other contracts looming.But Karlos is going to be hard to replace. He is an excellent tackler, plays well in space, has excellent ball skills, is a leader and, most of all, a great guy.

first_img“The key for cable is to embrace the web without sacrificing its traditional pay-TV model. This won’t be achieved by simply saying that cable is better and that it already offers enough choice and a better quality of service.”Cable is better at some things than others. With over-the-top video already being piped into TV sets, operators are now mulling over how to adapt.Apple TV, Vudu, Roku, Netflix, Slingcatcher and newer contenders like Yahoo’s TV Widgets and Zillion TV are already offering web-to-TV services. The trend is a follow-on from PC-centric services including hulu.com.  Users want the choice and functionality of the internet to be available on their TV screens.These new distribution kids on the block were out in force at the recent MIP TV market in Cannes. Yahoo’s stand demonstrated its TV Widget software, which is projected to be in tens of millions of TV sets and other devices including Blu-ray players by 2010.Yahoo’s vice president of connected content Patrick Barry says that the internet portal’s vision is to treat TVs as a “canvas where interactivity can survive from the social to the informational to the frivolous”.  The kind of content Yahoo is talking about includes Flickr,  Twitter and Facebook applications. These are easy to dismiss as “advanced teletext services”, but it’s clear is that this is just the beginning of Yahoo’s ambition. The big question is will any of these over-the-top services to the TV achieve critical mass? Will they be compelling enough to convince customers that they don’t need a cable TV service? It is inevitable that one of these over-the-top contenders will eventually get it right. Think of a well-designed OTT service combined with a digital-terrestrial TV tuner offering a suite of free linear TV channels on top of on-demand and interactive web services direct from a host of providers. Pay-TV could be facing a powerful alternative.The key for cable is to embrace the web without sacrificing its traditional pay-TV model. This won’t be achieved by simply saying that cable is better and that it already offers enough choice and a better quality of service.What to do about net-delivered content has been occupying some pretty big cable TV brains lately. Speaking at the recent Cable Congress in Berlin, Mike Fries, president and CEO of Liberty Global, the largest cable TV operator outside of the US, identified web TV and cable’s onscreen user interfaces as the two areas where the industry needs to do more and think harder. Martin Kull, chief technology officer at Sweden’s Com Hem was more explicit. “We have to look at ways to combine broadcast services with over-the-top providers,” he said. “This is a very complex arena [because] if we set out to combine everything we will never be finished. So we need to find a pragmatic way forward, before the consumer electronics industry does it.”Meanwhile Danish cable operator YouSee  has started offering TV channels and VOD over broadband to PCs as a retention and added-value tool for its current cable TV subscribers, providing them with a multi-room offer for PCs. But iYouSee also offers the broadband-to-PC service to people outside its cable footprint, thereby extending its reach.Since its launch in May of last year the YouSee web TV service has attracted 10% of the company’s broadband subscribers (for no extra monthly charge) and an unspecified number of ex-network broadband TV subscribers who pay ?14 a month for a service that includes 17 linear channels plus access to a 450-title VOD store where users pay per title. “We are very satisfied with the concept,” says Anders Blauenfelt, vice-president of product development. “We market it as an addition to the existing cable subscription or as a way to reach people in the 50% of the country where we don’t have our network. We don’t believe that PC distribution can eliminate the demand for a primary TV subscription. I know there are a lot of services right now where you can take over the top content to the TV but I don’t think right now that there is a mass market for that.” He believes that customers will be loyal to a cable-delivered service for catch-up TV and VOD: “We see the lean-back TV service as a closed environment where we can make sure that convenience and quality of service is assured.”Much as this may be true in the short term, people are not going to tolerate a closed system that blocks them from the things they want to see and hear. The music industry learned that lesson only too well. Cable has an opportunity to figure out how to respond to OTT services and perhaps work with them to provide a better experience. Balan Nair, chief technology officer of Liberty Global, told Cable Congress that “whether we like it or not, the internet is coming to the TV.” He wants the industry to come up with its own devices and services that do the same or face being bypassed. And he reminded the audience of the experience of TiVo. The PVR started life as a standalone box that consumers loved. Now of course it is a key feature of most cable set-top boxes and a key retention tool.Getting the relationship with OTT right is particularly pressing as the economic downturn begins to bite. While TV and telecoms services may be resilient in the face of the economic downturn, no one is immune.Kate Bulkley is a broadcaster and writer specialising in media and telecommunications. tellkatenow@aol.com.last_img read more

Today is the final day for the big traders to be o

first_imgToday is the final day for the big traders to be out of the May futures contract in silver. The gold price didn’t do much of anything in Far East trading—and was back to Friday’s close in New York by the London open on Monday morning.  It popped for a couple of bucks at that point before trading virtually rule flat into the noon London silver fix.  Then it rose another couple of bucks before inching higher into the London p.m. gold fix.  The price blasted higher, but it was obvious that JPMorgan et al were at battle stations, as volume exploded—and the price wasn’t allowed to get far.  The rally finally petered out around 12:45 p.m. EDT.  From there it inched lower for the remainder of the New York trading session, both COMEX and electronic. The low and high ticks were recorded as $1,177.60 and $1,206.70 in the June contract. Gold finished the Monday session in New York at $1,201.70 spot, up $21.30 from Friday’s close.  Net volume was monstrous at 185,000 contracts, as “da boyz” threw everything but the kitchen sink at the rally once the price broke above its 50-day moving average. The CME Daily Delivery Report showed that 403 gold and 72 silver contracts were posted for delivery within the COMEX-approved depositories on Wednesday.  In gold, the largest short/issuer was JPMorgan out of its client account with 372 contracts.  HSBC USA was in very distant second with 31 contracts.  Not surprisingly, the tallest hog at the trough as a long/stopper was JPMorgan out of its in-house [proprietary] trading account with 211 contracts—and Canada’s Scotiabank was on the receiving end of 186 contracts. In silver, all 72 contracts were issued by JPMorgan out of its client account—and Canada’s Scotiabank stopped 70 of them.  The CME Group stopped one contract, so it could deliver five contracts into it’s 1,000 troy ounce mini-silver contract.  The link to yesterday’s Issuers and Stoppers Report is here. The CME Preliminary Report for the Monday trading session showed that the remaining gold open interest for April fell by 26 contracts, down to 415 contracts.  With 403 contracts already posted for delivery tomorrow, it will be interesting to see if the 12 contracts remaining will get delivered on Thursday, or will they simply disappear.  In silver, the April open interest jumped by 50 contracts to 72 contracts and, obviously, they are all out for delivery tomorrow. I can hardly wait to see who the big short/issuers and long/stoppers are in the May delivery month—and we’ll find some of that out on Thursday evening, as it’s First Notice Day. There was a big gold withdrawal from GLD by an authorized participant on Monday.  This time it was 105,527 troy ounces.  And as of 8:50 p.m. EDT yesterday evening, there were no reported changes in SLV.  But when I checked the iShares.com Internet site about 3:45 a.m. EDT, I saw that an authorized participant had added 1,434,162 troy ounces.  Based on the price action, it’s a reasonable assumption that this was used to cover an existing short position, just like the 1 million ounce add to SLV on Friday. There was a small amount of gold sold at the U.S. Mint on Monday—4,000 troy ounces of gold eagles—and 500 one-ounce 24K gold buffaloes. The in/out activity in gold at the COMEX-approved depositories on Friday are barely worth mentioning, as 700 troy ounces were shipped in—and 132 troy ounces were shipped out.  Nothing to see here. There was decent in/out activity in silver, as 259,426 troy ounces were shipped in—and 259,426 ounces were shipped out the door.  None of it involved JPMorgan.  The link to that activity is here. For a change, there wasn’t any in/out activity at all in the gold kilobar warehouses in Hong Kong on Friday. Despite my best efforts, I have a large number of stories today—and I’ll happily leave the final edit up to you. Not one ounce of the 59 million equivalent ounces sold by the speculators in the managed money category this [past reporting] week was remotely connected to legitimate hedging; yet the sale was the indisputable sole price influence. That silver prices only declined by around 30 cents in the reporting week proves that the commercial buyers were more interested in buying the 59 million ounces from the managed money traders than they were in driving prices even lower. What this proves is that silver prices are being set on the COMEX with no regard to the actual world of silver production or consumption. The managed money long side is down to less than 42,500 contracts and is undoubtedly less than that since the cut-off and near the 40,000 contract non-technical fund core long position I have long postulated. Unless I’m off by a country mile (always possible), significant additional managed money long liquidation is not likely. The short position of the technical funds, at 32,283 contracts in the current report is already larger than the peak in January and higher, admittedly, than I thought it would be at this point. And it must be higher still since the cutoff. Simply put, the rocket fuel tanks appear to have been topped off in silver. – Silver analyst Ted Butler: 25 April 2015 There was no precious metal news to speak of on Monday—and the fact that prices blew up at the London p.m. gold fix [just like they melted down on Friday at that time] should be proof positive that this was all paper trading on the COMEX/GLOBEX between the brain-dead technical funds in the Managed Money category on one side—and the Commercial traders on the other. I was surprised that silver’s net volume was as low as it was, but I’m sure that  a certain portion of it was used to put out the fire in silver—and that was very noticeable in gold, with a huge blow-out in volume when gold broke above its 50-day moving average.  Silver just broke above its by only a few pennies. Here are the 6-month charts for all four precious metals courtesy of stockcharts.com. Silver traded quietly either side of $15.80 spot all through Far East and London trading, but starting shortly after 9 a.m. EDT things changed.  The first bump up in price took it up to $16 spot—and then it had two more quick rallies, one at the gold fix—and the other at 10:45 EDT just before London closed.  The high tick of the day came a minute before the London close—and the price didn’t do much after that. The low and high ticks were recorded by the CME Group as $15.68 and $16.445 in the May contract. Silver finished the Monday session at $16.40 spot, up 64.5 cents cents from Friday’s close.  Net volume was well in excess of 100,000 contracts, but it all netted out to only 28,000 contracts, so it didn’t appear that there was much interference in the silver rallies—and had all the hallmarks of short covering. Platinum chopped around unchanged until it hit its spike low shortly before 11 a.m. in Zurich.  Then it rallied a bit into the London p.m. gold fix—and away it went to the upside as well.  The high came at 1 p.m. EDT in New York—and from there it got sold off a bit into the close.  Platinum finished the day at $1,146 spot, up 23 dollars from Friday. The dollar index closed late on Friday afternoon in New York at 96.90—and rallied unsteadily in Far East and morning trading in London, hitting its 97.27 high tick shortly before the COMEX open in New York.  From there it got sold down to its 96.48 low tick about 12:45 p.m. EDT.  The index rallied back to 96.80 by 2 p.m.—and then chopped sideways in a tight range into the close.  The index finished the day at 96.86—down only 4 basis points from Friday. Once again the price activity in the currencies—and in the precious metal market—weren’t even close to being related.

Please send us an email for more information, ir@freegoldventures.com I was out with my camera again on Sunday.  It’s spring, but this far north in continental North America, it arrives slowly.  A lot of the waterfowl and a few other species of birds have returned from the south, but the rest are weeks away from showing up. The first photo is of a jackrabbit—and it’s not quite in focus as the auto focus couldn’t keep up with him.  They’re very common around here—and this one looks a little shaggy, as it’s in the final throes of losing its inner and outer winter coat.  This is not your cute little bunny, this is a big animal—and there are only a few dogs it can’t outrun. The silver equities turned in a better performance—and their highs came about the same time as gold’s, but they didn’t sell off as much after that, as Nick Laird’s Intraday Silver Sentiment Index closed up 4.18 percent.center_img Here’s your typical drake mallard in its breeding plumage.  I was using a 1.4x teleconverter with my 400mm telephoto lens when I took this shot, so the image quality is not quite what it could be.  The photo below it is of a drake mallard as well, as it flew overhead.  It’s a view very few get to see for any length of time—but at 1/3,200 of a second, the wing action gets stopped cold—and you can view the wing pattern at your leisure. The gold stocks gapped up a bit at the open—and barely reacted to the big jump in price at the London p.m. fix.  However they did continue to rally steadily from there, hitting their zenith minutes before 1 p.m. EDT, which was gold’s high tick on the day.  From there they slid lower for the remainder of the Monday trading session, giving back over half their gains, as the HUI only closed up 1.90 percent.  I was underwhelmed. Here’s the 5-minute tick gold chart courtesy of Brad Robertson.  All the volume that mattered on Monday came between the London pm. gold fix and the COMEX close, which was 10 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. EDT—08:00 till 11:30 on this chart, which is scaled for Denver time.  Add two hours for EDT—and don’t forget the ‘click to enlarge’ feature. Palladium rallied as well, but on a slightly different time schedule from the other three precious metals.  The low came about the same time as platinum, but the high came shortly after it’s rally at the London p.m. gold fix.  From there, like platinum, it got sold down into the the close of electronic trading.  Palladium only finished up 8 bucks on the day. And as I write this paragraph, the London open is fifteen minutes away.  All four precious metals got sold down a bit during the first couple of hours of Far East trading on their Tuesday morning—and have all traded pretty much ruler flat since then.  Gold is hanging onto the $1,200 spot mark by its proverbial fingernails at the moment. Gold volume is a bit over 16,500 contracts, with virtually all of it in the current front month, which is June, so it’s all of the HFT variety.  Silver volume is very decent, but once you remove the roll-overs, net volume is barely moving the needle at 1,500 contracts.  It’s like yesterday’s price action never happened. The dollar index has been chopping sideways as well—and is currently down 8 basis points. Today is the final day for the big traders to be out of the May futures contract in silver, so I expect Tuesday’s volume to be pretty chunky as well, with a tiny net volume.  Of course that may all go out the window if we have another price surprise in COMEX trading this morning, but I don’t ever remember big price moments on this particular day of the trading month—but after yesterday, I guess one shouldn’t rule it out entirely.  But if I had to bet money, it would be on the former scenario. Today, at the close of COMEX trading, is also the cut-off for this Friday’s Commitment of Traders Report—and it will be interesting to see if all of the reporting week’s price/volume action makes it into that report, particularly Monday’s action.  We’ll see. And as I send today’s column off to Stowe, Vermont at 5:15 a.m. EDT, I see that all four precious metals are still down a hair from Monday’s close—and with the exception of palladium, all are trading absolutely flat.  Gold’s net volume is way up there at 27,000 contracts, with 99 percent of that in current front month. As expected, there’s still heavy roll-over volume in silver, but net volume is still extremely light at barely over 2,100 contracts—and the dollar index is virtually unchanged from two and half hours ago, down 5 basis points. I haven’t the foggiest notion as to how the precious metals will trade for the remainder of the Tuesday session, but I will be surprised if we do see a lot of price action either today or tomorrow, as the May silver contract goes off the board. That’s all I have for today—and I’ll see you here tomorrow.last_img read more

Oil shouldnt be rallying This month the price

first_imgOil shouldn’t be rallying. This month, the price of oil has jumped 12%. Yesterday, it closed at its highest price since early July. While this is a big move, it’s not uncommon for commodities. Remember, commodities are volatile. One day, they’re soaring. The next, they’re crashing. It’s important not to get caught up in their day-to-day swings. Still, this rally caught our eye… You may remember that oil crashed in the summer of 2014. It’s since plunged 75%. In January, it hit its lowest level since 2003. Oil tanked because there was simply too much of it. High prices and innovative techniques like “fracking” triggered a huge boom in global oil production. Over the last decade, U.S. output nearly doubled to the highest level since the 1970s. Production in other major oil-producing countries hit record highs. The global economy ended up with more oil than it needed. For the past two years, the global economy has been working through a giant oil surplus. Progress has been slow. According to International Energy Agency (IEA), the global economy is still oversupplied by more than 300,000 barrels per day (bpd). Yet, oil’s rallying. Today, we’ll show you what’s pushing oil higher. As you’ll see, it won’t cure the industry’s biggest problems… • Hopes of a production “freeze” caused oil prices to surge… Earlier this month, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), a cartel of 14 oil-producing countries, said it plans to hold informal talks in Algeria next month. The purpose of this meeting is to bring stability back to the oil market. Some analysts think OPEC could even freeze production at this meeting, meaning it would cap production at current levels. We aren’t holding our breath… • OPEC has already tried to cap output a couple times over the past year… The most recent talk took place in Qatar in April. OPEC even invited non-members like Russia. It was the first time in 15 years OPEC met non-members to discuss fixing output. Oil rallied ahead of the meeting on hopes that OPEC would reach an agreement. The talks went nowhere. Iran, OPEC’s second-biggest producer, didn’t even show up. • OPEC isn’t acting like a cartel… Right now, it’s every member for itself. And it’s not hard to see why… Oil is the economic backbone of every OPEC nation. It makes up 80% of Saudi Arabia’s exports…66% of Kuwait’s exports…and 46% of the United Arab Emirates’ exports. If these countries stop producing oil, their economies could fall apart. Last month, Saudi Arabia pumped a record 10.67 million bpd, which broke the monthly record set last June. The United Arab Emirates and Kuwait are also producing record amounts of oil. If OPEC was serious about “stabilizing” the market, it wouldn’t keep flooding the world with oil. • Even if OPEC agrees to freeze production, it won’t make much difference… As we’ve said many times, the world needs oil companies to cut production, not cap it at record highs. It’s true that production in some parts of world, including the U.S., has come down. But more cuts are needed. According to the IEA, “the massive overhang of stocks is also keeping a lid on prices, with both newly produced and stored crude competing for market share.” A huge surplus isn’t the only factor keeping oil prices low either. • The global economy is slowing… A few weeks ago, we told you oil demand was plummeting. According to the global investment bank Barclays (BCS), oil demand is growing about one-third as fast as it did a year ago. Oil is the most important commodity on the planet. It literally powers the global economy. If demand for oil is weak, it’s because the global economy is headed in the wrong direction. According to Forbes, China’s economy, which is growing at the slowest pace since 1990, is weighing on oil. The economies of Japan and South Korea, two major oil importers, are also showing signs of fatigue. Meanwhile, U.S. gasoline demand is weak. According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), U.S. gasoline stockpiles hit their highest seasonal level since 1990 last month. Gasoline, a byproduct of oil, keeps our cars running. If folks are buying less of it, it’s because they’re driving less. That’s not a good sign for the economy. And it’s bad news for oil prices. • Oil companies have two big problems right now… The world still has too much oil. And households and businesses are consuming less oil. This tells us oil prices could stay low for a long time. Some folks might read that and think they should avoid all oil stocks. But Casey readers know one of the best ways to make huge gains investing is to buy beaten-down markets. That’s because crisis investing, as we like to call it, often allows you to buy world-class businesses for dirt-cheap prices.  • For the past two years, the oil market has been a bloodbath… Major oil companies like Chevron (CVX) and Exxon (XOM) have lost billions of dollars due to low oil prices. More than a hundred smaller oil companies have gone out of business. But, remember, the oil market is cyclical. It experiences big booms and busts. And since the world isn’t about to stop using oil, oil stocks will boom again. During the 2009–2014 boom, the average U.S. oil producer gained 256%. Right now, many oil stocks are trading at deep discounts. The SPDR S&P Oil & Gas Exploration & Production ETF (XOP), which tracks major U.S. oil producers, is trading 56% below its 2014 high. • If you want to get back into oil stocks, stick with the best… Oil prices could stay low for years. So make sure you only invest in companies that can make money at low prices. We also like companies with quality assets, healthy profit margins, and little to no debt. In other words, we want companies that can “weather the storm” if oil prices fall again. In March, Nick Giambruno, editor of Crisis Investing, recommended a company that checks all these boxes. According to Nick, this company can make money at as low as $35 oil. Nick’s oil pick has returned 19% since March. But it’s not too late to invest in this elite business. The stock is trading 23% below its 2014 high.

All you have to do is make simple investments at the right time. This FREE video explains exactly how to do this. Chart of the Day The retail sector just flashed another warning sign. Today’s chart shows the performance of retail giant Target (TGT) since the start of August. You can see Target’s stock plunged 6.3% today. It’s headed for its second-worst day in five years. Target’s stock nosedived after it reported a 10% decline in second-quarter profits. Management blamed the bad results on a “difficult retail environment.” It doesn’t expect business to pick up anytime soon. This morning, management said this year’s sales and profits would likely come in lower than expected. Target isn’t the only major retailer bracing for tough times. Last week, Kohl’s (KSS) lowered its profit outlook for the year. And Macy’s (M) recently announced plans to shut down 14% of its stores by the end of the year. This tells us something is very wrong with the economy…and that more trouble could be ahead. You see, consumer spending makes up 70% of the U.S. economy. When the economy slows, folks will stop buying designer jeans and expensive cologne to make sure they don’t miss a mortgage payment. They’ll hold off on buying a new watch to save money for the essentials. Today, Target and many other big American retailers are trading like we’re in a recession.

Sound could save circuits

first_imgShareCONTACT: Mike WilliamsPHONE: 713-348-6728E-MAIL: mikewilliams@rice.eduSound could save circuitsRice researchers theorize acoustic waves may cool microelectronics“Hot sounds” has one meaning to music fans and another to physicists. Count a team of researchers at Rice University among the latter, as they’ve discovered that acoustic waves traveling along ribbons of graphene might be just the ticket for removing heat from very tiny electronic devices. A theoretical model by Rice physicist Boris Yakobson and his students has determined graphene – a single-layer honeycomb of carbon atoms and the focus of much materials science and electronics research – can transmit thermal energy in waves. Given the elastic properties of graphene, long waves of the acoustic kind seem to work best. Because the scattering properties of graphene are low, such waves can go fast and far, unobstructed by each other or by imperfections in the material.You’d never hear anything, no matter how close you put your ear to the nanoscale ribbon, Yakobson said. But to the researchers, the implications are clear as a bell.“On this scale, graphene has promise for fundamental reasons,” said Yakobson, a Rice professor in mechanical engineering and materials science and of chemistry and part of a program recently named No. 1 in the world for the quality of its materials science research. “The speed of sound is the speed with which energy can be carried away, because heat is transported, essentially, through vibrations.”Yakobson and his co-authors, former postdoctoral associate Enrique Muñoz, now an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Playa Ancha in Chile, and Jianxin Lu, a Rice graduate student, published their results last week in the online edition of the journal Nano Letters.Muñoz, the paper’s primary author, said the “nearly ballistic behavior” of phonons, quantum particles considered sound’s equivalent to light’s photons, makes the graphene material 10 times better than copper or gold at conducting heat. The trick to making such graphene-enabled heat pipes effective will be to figure out where the heat goes when it gets to the end of the ribbon, an issue Lu continues to study for both nanoribbons and nanotubes. Without an effective interface, the propagating waves of phonons would simply bounce back.“You need another medium,” Yakobson said. “That’s why I say this is more of a heat pipe than a heat sink, because at the far end of the graphene, you need contact with fluid, in a gas or liquid phase, so this wave energy can dissipate.”The power density of current microelectronics would, on a macro scale, be enough to heat a teapot to boiling in seconds. So it’s becoming increasingly important to remove heat from sensitive instruments and release it to the air in a hurry.“We’re dealing with a very high heat density – maybe a kilowatt per centimeter square,” Yakobson said. “When you want to barbecue, such heat is very useful. But in this case, you’d basically barbecue your device.”Finding a way to deal with transmitting heat away from ever-smaller devices is critical to sustaining Moore’s Law, which accurately predicted (so far) that the number of transistors that could be placed on an integrated circuit would double about every two years.“Another interesting application of these ribbons is in the construction of phonon waveguides,” Muñoz added. “Graphene ribbons could be pieces in a nanoscale circuit where phonons, instead of electrons, serve as information carriers in a different computer architecture.”The research was carried out on a grant from LANCER, a joint project between the Lockheed Martin Corp. and Rice’s Richard E. Smalley Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology.

Google to Stop Scanning Gmail Messages to Serve Up Ads

first_imgGmail Register Now » Google to Stop Scanning Gmail Messages to Serve Up Ads Image credit: qoppi | Shutterstock.com –shares This story originally appeared on PCMag Free Webinar | July 31: Secrets to Running a Successful Family Business June 26, 2017 Next Article center_img Add to Queue Google apparently has enough data about your online activity to serve you targeted advertisements without its controversial email scanning program. 2 min read Google already knows so much about you that it has decided it no longer needs to read your emails in order to serve up targeted advertisements.That’s not to say Gmail will now be ad-free: the search giant simply announced on Friday that it is bringing its email service in line with the rest of its free consumer web services, which display ads based on your search history, YouTube viewing history and a wealth of other data Google collects about your online activity. The move will also bring Gmail in line with the paid G Suite email service that Google offers to its corporate customers. G Suite emails are not scanned for targeted advertising, and Google said that it wanted to standardize its practices to appease its more than 3 million G Suite customers, who might be worried about the privacy of their emails.”What we’re going to do is make it unambiguous,” Google’s Senior Vice President of Cloud Diane Greene told Bloomberg.Google’s practice of scanning Gmail messages has long been controversial, with the company defending multiple lawsuits and even facing wiretapping charges in the U.S. Google argued in court in 2013 that its users should have a reasonable expectation that their emails are subject to “automatic processing,” but the judge disagreed, finding that scanning is not considered an “instrumental part of the transmission of email.”Other litigation is still ongoing, including over whether Google is required to prominently disclose its scanning policy. The company added an explanation of the scanning to its terms of service in 2014, but doing so did not satisfy a federal judge in San Francisco, who rejected a legal settlement in March that proposed to pay $2.2 million to lawyers, but nothing to consumers.There are more than 1.2 billion users of the free Gmail service, according to Google. The company said in a blog post that it will “keep privacy and security paramount” as it adds more features to Gmail.

FIND launches new schistosomiasis program within neglected tropical diseases portfolio

first_imgThe program to develop the CAA RDTs is expected to be complete within 4 years, with the first milestone of feasibility testing for the disease control test anticipated in 2019. Source:https://www.finddx.org/ Seven out of the 10 diseases identified in the London Declaration for eradication, elimination or control by 2020 lack critical diagnostic solutions – including schistosomiasis. With this addition to our neglected tropical diseases program, we are pleased to extend our long-standing commitment of bringing diagnostic excellence to the fight against these diseases, contributing to WHO goals for control and, ultimately, elimination.”Catharina Boehme, CEO, FIND Mar 14 2019The Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics (FIND) announced today the launch of a new schistosomiasis program within its neglected tropical diseases (NTD) portfolio. The program focuses on developing rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) for detection of circulating anodic antigen (CAA) in blood and/or urine, to support national control and/or elimination programs in countries where schistosomiasis is regularly found.Schistosomiasis is caused by parasitic worms carried by freshwater snails and affects over 206 million people across 78 tropical and sub-tropical countries, with most of the burden found in sub-Saharan Africa. People can become infected when they come into contact with fresh water that is infested with worm larvae, while carrying out routine activities. The infection triggers immune reactions resulting in progressive organ damage, which can lead to chronic ill-health and ultimately death, if left untreated. Current World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines for schistosomiasis diagnosis recommend examination of stool and/or urine samples by microscopy to detect worm eggs, but this can be challenging especially when the intensity of the infection is low. Analysis of multiple samples over several days by highly trained microscopists is both time-consuming and challenging to deploy; inaccurate diagnosis can lead to treatment being stopped too soon and, as a result, infections quickly returning to their original levels.CAA is secreted continuously by living schistosomes. A laboratory-based test for the antigen, with high sensitivity for all species of schistosomes that are of public health importance, is available. However, in order to achieve optimal sensitivity, the test requires complex sample processing steps and a reader for detection.FIND is leading a consortium, together with WHO, that includes Mologic, UK, and Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC), Netherlands, to develop novel RDTs for schistosomiasis infection. Two RDTs for CAA are being developed: one to support ongoing schistosomiasis control programs by providing data to estimate prevalence and intensity of infection, supporting the update of guidelines on routine use of RDTs for schistosomiasis; the other one with a higher sensitivity to support elimination efforts by identifying low infection intensities.Related StoriesHealthy blood vessels could help stave off cognitive declineMathematical model helps quantify metastatic cell behaviorIntermittent fasting shown to improve blood glucose levelsInitial work streams are being supported by catalytic funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, with additional funding from Merck, through the Merck Global Health Institute, which is amongst the scientific partners of this program. The science and technology company Merck launched its Global Health Institute in April 2017 with the mission to develop transformative health solutions to support control and elimination programs related to infectious diseases such as schistosomiasis, and to contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).center_img Contributing to the schistosomiasis control and elimination agenda is a priority for Merck. This program clearly addresses the need for new sensitive diagnostics in the fight against schistosomiasis.”Beatrice Greco, Head of R&D and Access at the Merck Global Health Institute Schistosomiasis is contracted from contaminated water, putting whole communities at risk. The new diagnostic technologies will be a huge step forward, but to achieve real impact their use cannot be confined to labs. The RDT format will allow testing in community settings and enable essential surveillance and disease tracking.”Joseph Ndung’u, Head of Neglected Tropical Diseases at FINDlast_img read more

Qualcomm aims to spark virtual reality market with its first standalone ARVR

first_img The new chip from Qualcomm, which primarily makes smartphone semiconductors today, targets virtual reality/augmented reality gear at affordable prices—in the $200 range.That is similar to the $199 pricetag for Facebook’s new Oculus Go virtual reality headset, which went on sale earlier this month.Oculus Go, a standalone VR headset that doesn’t require tethering to a smartphone or computer, is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 smartphone processor.By having a dedicated virtual/augmented reality chip, Qualcomm hopes to be able to drive a better experience for untethered AR/VR devices—with longer battery life, lower temperatures and better video/audio.Qualcomm is the first major chip designer to produce a system-on-a-chip specifically for virtual realty/augmented reality. In the past, it has supplied smartphone processors that were sometimes tweaked for VR/AR customers.But other chip makers could follow suit. Both Intel and Nvidia have virtual reality programs that supply headset makers with computer processors and graphics chips.Qualcomm is calling its AR/VR chip platform the Snapdragon XR1, and it was unveiled Tuesday at the Augmented World Expo in the Bay Area. The chip is tailored for high-definition video, audio, graphics, head tracking, speech recognition, jitter reduction, low latency and controller support, among other features key to virtual reality.”We strongly believe that XR is the next mobile computing platform,” said Hiren Bhinde, director of XR product management at Qualcomm. “This is going to disrupt all these different verticals, including health care, education, military, retail, marketing and advertising.”Many virtual reality headsets, such as the Samsung Galaxy Gear VR and Google Daydream, are essentially accessories to smartphones. Users fit their smartphones into a virtual reality headset to get the VR experience.In addition, there are powerful gaming virtual reality headsets such as Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Sony PlayStation VR. They are typically linked via cables to souped-up gaming computers or consoles and cost $400 or more. This document is subject to copyright.

Explore further Qualcomm platform poised for good times in standalone extended reality But standalone VR devices—untethered from computers or smartphones—have been gaining traction this year, said George Jijiashvili, senior analyst with CCS Insights. Oculus Go, Lenovo Mirage Solo and the HTC Vive Focus are among the new untethered devices.”In the standalone VR headset category, pricing will be a crucial determining factor of success,” said Jijiashvili. “Given the Oculus Go’s price tag of $199, I’m optimistic about its chances of sparking a new wave of growth that can help broaden the appeal of VR, particularly among businesses and in education as well.”Qualcomm will still supply more expensive, $400-plus premium gaming headsets with chips based on its latest Snapdragon 845 top tier smartphone processor. It can power eye tracking and sophisticated controller functions so gamers swinging a sword feel like their hands are part of the game, said Hugo Swart, senior director at Qualcomm and head of XR business management.The dedicated Snapdragon XR1 platform doesn’t support the same level of controller immersion. But it still aims to create a good experience for the price.”What we see is a demand from (device makers) and consumers for a product that is good, but maybe doesn’t have all the features of premium quality,” said Swart. “You still feel immersed in the experience. You still have the very low latency that is required for a good experience, but it is more affordable than the premium quality tier.”According to CCS Insight’s latest market forecast, 2 million standalone VR headsets will be shipped globally in 2019, rising to 10 million in 2022.CCS Insight forecasts 22 million virtual reality and augmented reality headsets and glasses of all types will be sold in 2018—with fivefold growth to 121 million devices by 2022.Smartphone-connected virtual reality will account for the bulk of the sales this year, but standalone devices are expected to grow quickly and account for 63 percent of the total market value of $9.9 billion by 2022, according to CCS.”We were encouraged to see in our latest consumer survey that virtual tourism, remote participation in events such as music concerts and virtual social interactions are all emerging as further uses for virtual reality,” said Jijiashvili. “Watching video is also proving popular, particularly on smartphone-based headsets.”Qualcomm’s Snapdragon XR1 chips are being tested by VR/AR device makers now. They are expected to be used in headsets available to consumers starting next year.center_img ©2018 The San Diego Union-Tribune Distributed by Tribune Content Agency, LLC.
