Calling and Driving Could Make You Safer Report

first_imgHere’s a report sure to raise the ire of safety advocates, everywhere. According to a new study, an increase in the number of people driving while talking on the phone may have actually made us all safer. The study, conducted by Saurabh Bhargava of the University of Chicago and Vikram Pathania from London’s School of Economics studied 440,000 made by California drivers over 11 days. They found no significant increase in crashes from those drivers using their cells. The study comes as the number of traffic accidents declines, in spite of an increase in those talking while driving. So, how could “distracted driving” actually make you safer? Bhargava and Pathania have a few theories. First, there’s the fact that drivers are often extra cautious when they pick up the phone behind the wheel. Also, those who are crappy drivers while talking on their phone may just be crappy drivers in general.Makes sense, I suppose. It also flies in the face of pretty much everything we’ve ever heard about distracted driving, ever–including a number of laws that have been passed over the past couple of years.Of course, we can’t really recommend that anyone go out and actually try it–after all, who will keep the Bluetooth headset companies in business?last_img read more

Building penalty may hit houses

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram More than 1 million households could soon be forced to pay thousands of euros each to ensure that areas of their homes which were originally planned as balconies but have since been turned into closed rooms are not liable to be demolished.A gap in building laws has allowed developers to include semi-open (imiypaithria) areas in homes. These are essentially covered balconies that have walls on three sides but are open on the fourth. It is estimated that some 1.5 million of these spaces have been closed off and turned into proper rooms.Earlier this month, Public Works and Environment Minister Giorgos Souflias suggested the government was working on a plan to regulate these illegally closed spaces.Souflias emphasized this would not amount to a legalisation, which would allow homeowners to include the square meters taken up by the semi-open spaces in the total area of their home and therefore push up its price.The government’s plan means that homeowners will be able to protect themselves against possible demolition of the offending part of their house or apartment, which the law demands.last_img read more

Jokanovic urges fringe players to fight for places

first_imgFulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic is disappointed that some of his players are not putting in enough fight despite missing out on selection in his starting line-up.Fulham spent more than £100m during the summer signing 12 players, but have just one win from their opening 12 Premier League matches, and manager Jokanovic is likely to name the same starting eleven for two games in a row despite believing that competition for places is healthy.“This process is never finished, other players are going to have an opportunity to push hard and fight for the space in the team,” Jokanovic told Sky Sports.“I want to encourage my players to not wait for an opportunity. I want to encourage them to fight, to force the situation and show me they are my best choice. This is what I expect.Official: Tottenham sign Fulham youngster Ryan Sessegnon Andrew Smyth – August 8, 2019 Tottenham have sealed another transfer deadline day deal to sign the highly-rated Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham.“I want to make some competition between them and for them to be hurt when they are not in the starting XI. This is what I miss right now.“And we’re going to push harder and in this way be competitive in Premier League games too.”last_img read more

BtoB Titles Using Brand Audit Report Quadruples YearOverYear

first_imgUK-based Flightglobal, a Reed Business brand and aviation industry title, takes the prize for the most channels analyzed in a single report—19. An average of 3.8 channels per brand are analyzed in each report, says BPA. The Brand Report got off to a slow start, however. A beta version was released in late 2009 when early adopter Stamats Business Media was the first to complete a test report for its Meetings West brand. “This new audit tool will help our advertising customers quickly and thoroughly determine the depth and scope of the media buy within a given brand needed to achieve their mar/com  objectives,” said Stamats president Tim Fixmer at the time. By late 2010 about a dozen publishers were readying December brand reports. And by early 2012 that had only grown to just under 60.That the number of brands using the report has quadrupled points to not only the growing number of platforms publishers are leveraging for their content, but the lack of audience overlap across them. There are a variety of signals that point to the growing importance of measuring and tracking audience across a brand’s platform. On the ad side you have the explosion of marketing services and on the audience side there’s the continued push for integrated databases.Another indication could be the sudden and rapid increase of brands utilizing BPA‘s Brand Report. In the last year, the number of titles reporting cross-platform audience metrics has more than quadrupled. A total of 295 titles are now reporting their audience metrics across channels. According to the BPA, the healthcare category has the most titles, at 87, using the report, followed by manufacturing (38) and legal & financial services (33). last_img read more

Theres Still Time to See UnSeen At Portrait Gallery

first_imgBy George Kevin Jordan, AFRO Staff WriterEven though The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery is technically not on the National Mall geographically, it is still one of the most important museums in the District. Over the past few years it has housed some important exhibitions pertaining to the African and African American Diaspora. Just think of the now famous portraits of former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama that currently reside there.“UnSeen: Our Past In A New Light” is no exception to this rule.A piece by Titus Kaphar included in “UnSeen: Our Past In A New Light,” at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Northwest, D.C.Ken Gonzales-Day and Titus Kaphar, a photographer and a painter, respectively, take our ideas and notions about race and toss them in a blender. The result is a heady mix of thought provoking images that leave the audience contemplating long after they’ve left the building.“The history of early American portraiture favored White men who owned land, and it defined American identity in ways that excluded women and people of color from our nation’s visual record,” said National Portrait Gallery Director Kim Sajet in a press release. ‘UnSeen: Our Past in a New Light’ presents the perspectives of two leading contemporary artists who create powerful works of art that reframe history.”The artists hail from different parts of the country but their unifying thesis’ on race connects their work.Kaphar has 17 painting and one sculpture in the exhibit. His work is more visceral as paintings are cut, ripped, smeared with white paint. Images of Blackness are revealed under the traditional painting of “White” presidents and political leaders.His work is separated into three themes: “Disappearing Bloodlines,” “Darkened National Histories” and “Deconstructed Portraits.”Kaphar’s work literally leaps off the canvas. Or in many cases peels off. The work is deliberately messy, sometimes gross, in an amazing way. You are forced to deal with the ugliness of racism that lurks behind the typical ideal of White, male leadership. Our American heroes are physically challenged by the portraits of a Black bodies underneath.The Yale alum has had his work showcased in several museums including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Brooklyn Museum and the Studio Museum of Harlem.Gonzales-Day’s work had a more subtle edge to it. For instance in one collection of his work at the Gallery “Erased Lynchings” is a deeper exploration of the history of lynching and its impact on other racial groups such as Latinos, Asian Americans and Native Americans. In the portraits the violence and actual lynched figures are erased, leaving the viewer to ponder on the people who remained, the perpetrators of the violence and the bystanders. The witnesses. The violence seeps through the images even though they have technically been altered to be void of the acts in question.In his other major collection “Profiled” the artists explores notions of race and beauty by juxtaposing classical images of White bodies and bodies of color next to one another. The artists poses the question, “Who is recognized and remembered in the national history, and why?”The photos are beautiful in black and white, with the images having conversations with one another. The collection of the two artists work forces the audience to rethink how we see traditional museum works in general, and traditional ideas of what should go into a museum in the first place.Gonzales-Day, who lives in LA, has had his work at Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Tamayo Museum in Mexico City, and Palais de Tokyo, in Paris.Both artists push us to rethink the portrait and see it as yet another narrative that has been manipulated to tell only one type of story or history, over and over again. One that is frequently white and male.The exhibit will be on display until Jan.  6. For more information please go to the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery’s website. The National Portrait Gallery is located on 8th Street N.W. & F Street N.W., Washington, DC 20001last_img read more

Please Stop Making Power Rangers Look So Gross

first_img There’s a new trailer for the big-budget Power Rangers movie, and it looks super gross!Take a look for yourself. Bryan Cranston plays a talking wall. There are jokes about peeing in cups for drug tests!Listen. Power Rangers is trash. It always was. I have a massive amount of nostalgia for the franchise, and it was legitimately cool how that enterprising producer Haim Saban was able to stitch together a new American show from old Japanese Super Sentai footage. But the show itself is trash. To feel justified calling out utter garbage from the 1980s like He-Man I have to be willing to acknowledge 1990s garbage like Power Rangers.That said, Power Rangers, while trash, never looked gross. Sure there were some ugly monsters but they were supposed to be ugly. All of the heroes wore silly but stylish and colorful spandex while riding around in sleek giant robot animals. “Don’t look gross” seems like a pretty obvious aesthetic goal. Unfortunately, the upcoming big-budget Power Rangers reboot movie didn’t get the memo.Recently the redesigned Alpha 5 was revealed, and just look at what Geek’s own K. Thor Jensen had to say about the thoroughly gross, veiny, potbellied take on the previously cute little android.This guy likes to fuck— K. Thor Jensen (@kthorjensen) November 30, 2016 Bill Hader is voicing the character and I hope he just uses his Stefon voice.The new Alpha 5 is by far the grossest redesign so far, but the “updated” incarnations of the Rangers and their Zord vehicles are similarly visually repellent. Instead of the clean lines and iconic shapes of the originals, everything is a throbbing, metal, musclebound mess. I know the Power Rangers wear skintight suits but now they look like robots who had their skin ripped off of them.Meanwhile, instead of looking like dinosaurs, the Zords barely look like anything at all.Chills run down my spine thinking about how disgusting they’re going to make the already frightening Bryan Cranston when they turn his big bald head into famous floating tube alien Zordon.Ironically, aside from some dirt smeared on her arms, Elizabeth Banks as antagonist Rita Repulsa is probably the nicest-looking thing to come from the movie so far. And I don’t mean that in a gross way.It’s unfortunate but understandable why the Power Rangers have to look so gross now. The Transformers movies have been making billions of dollars for almost a decade featuring gross versions of beloved children’s robots. But it’s really sad when Joseph Kahn’s fan-film poking fun of how dumb a gritty Power Rangers reboot would be is still more pleasant to look at than the real dumb thing. It’s hard to enough to admit the stuff I love is trash. Stop making that trash even uglier.Power Rangers disappoints in theaters March 24, 2017. Here’s hoping it’s a nonstop orgy hosted by Alpha 5. ‘Legend of the White Dragon’ Reunites Original Power RangersThe Original ‘Power Rangers’ Movie Should Have Stayed Small center_img Stay on targetlast_img read more

Breaking down the failure of the Xbox Ones backwards compatibility

first_imgThe Xbox One has received the “New Xbox One Experience” today with a huge system update that overhauls the interface, puts the system on a Windows 10 backbone, and adds backwards compatibility for Xbox 360 games. Adding backwards compatibility is great news (that sort of started with the release of Rare Replay, not the system update). The list of backwards compatible games isn’t. The list blows. Let’s look at exactly why.The Xbox One has a list of 104 Xbox 360 games that are backwards compatible with the new update. That’s a promising number, assuming it covers the Xbox 360’s bases.  Well, I’ll trim the list to the big-name, current-at-the-time, core games. I mean the ones that were, at least in theory, shooting for near-AAA or modern enthusiast purchase status.Assassin’s Creed IIBorderlandsCall of Juarez: GunslingerCondemned: Criminal OriginsDirt 3Dirt ShowdownDungeon Siege IIIFable 2Fallout 3Gears of WarGears of War 2Gears of War 3Gears of War: JudgementJust Cause 2Kameo: Elements of PowerMass EffectMirror’s EdgePrince of PersiaTom Clancy’s Rainbow Six VegasTom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2South Park: The Stick of TruthViva PinataViva Pinata 2Before you question any individual item on the list, I freely admit I’m being very generous. Still, that’s 23 “big” games from the Xbox 360. And there’s a big, ring-shaped hole in that list called “The entire Halo series and Halo: Spartan Assault completely doesn’t count.” Backwards compatibility has been added, Halo: The Master Chief Collection on the Xbox One suffered an embarrassing amount of problems that still linger, and the Xbox 360 versions of the entire brand’s biggest series aren’t anywhere to be seen.Now, let’s look at the really, really old XBLA games added to the backwards compatibility list, making them double-ports/remakes:Asteroids & DeluxeCentipede & MillipedeCrazy TaxyDiscs of TronEarthworm Jim HDIkarugaLode RunnerMetal Slug 3Metal Slug XXMissile CommandMonkey Island: Special EditionMonkey Island 2: Special EditionNiGHTS into dreamsPac-Man: Championship EditionPac-Man: Championship Edition DXRayman 3 HDSega Vintage Collection: Alex Kidd & Co.Sega Vintage Collection: Golden AxeSega Vintage Collection: Monster WorldSega Vintage Collection: Streets of RageSonic CDSonic the HedgehogSonic the Hedgehog 2Sonic the Hedgehog 3Wolfenstein 3DThat’s 24 ancient games ported to the Xbox 360 and then made available on the Xbox One. I didn’t include the Rare Replay titles, because I was starting to feel bad (that would pump the number up well past 30, even if you ignored the Spectrum games like everyone else on the planet).That’s not enough, so let’s look at the casual and mobile games you can play on any smartphone made in the last five years:Bejeweled 2Halo: Spartan AssaultHardwood BackgammonHardwood HeartsHardwood SpadesHexic HDMight & Magic Clash of HeroesNBA Jam: On Fire EditionZumaWhen you’re rolling out a backwards compatibility list for your current-gen game console and you have to include Bejeweled 2 and Zuma to break three digits, you have a problem.That said, there are some backwards compatible games that are totally worth checking out. Shadow Complex is one of the best shameless Super Metroid ripoffs I’ve ever played, and just a really fun 2.5D action game. Beyond Good & Evil HD is worth a look, both because it was a great game and Ubisoft needs to be reminded that there are franchises other than Assassin’s Creed to put work into. Just Cause 2 is goofy sandbox fun that still holds up (though the PC version has a multiplayer mod and tons of support). And you can show Bellator: MMA Onslaught to your friends to get them to ask, “What the hell is Bellator: MMA Onslaught?”But for a backwards compatibility list, this is a pretty big botch on the day of such a big update to the system.last_img read more

NASA Spacecraft Ready for Artemis 1 Lunar Mission

first_img To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, Vice President Mike Pence on Saturday announced the completion of NASA’s Orion crew capsule for the first Artemis lunar mission.The effort—named after Greek deity Artemis, twin sister of Apollo and goddess of the Moon—will help put the first woman and the next man on the Moon’s south pole by 2024.It also aims to establish sustainable missions within a decade.AdChoices广告“Thanks to the hard work of the men and women of NASA, and of American industry, the Orion crew vehicle for the Artemis 1 mission is complete and ready to begin preparations for its historic first flight,” Pence said during a speech at the Florida’s Kennedy Space Center.NASA’s goal 50 years ago was to prove it could land humans on the Moon and return them safely to Earth.Now, the agency is being forced wants to revisit Earth’s satellite (in a sustainable way) as a sort of pit stop on an eventual trip to Mars.In February, Pence demanded the National Aeronautics and Space Administration put new boot prints in the lunar dust within five years.To help the process along, President Donald Trump in May proposed another $1.6 billion of support, bringing the total funding request to $22.6 billion.The Trump administration “has given us a bold direction to return to the Moon by 2024 and then go forward to Mars,” NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said over the weekend.“Their direction is not empty rhetoric,” he added.The exact timeline remains unclear: Sometime in the next five years, Artemis 1 will launch NASA’s Orion spacecraft and Space Launch System (SLS) rocket around the Moon to test the system, before landing humans back on the planetoid.Now that Orion’s crew module and European Service Module (the latter contributed by ESA) are complete, engineers have begun joining the pieces together.Later this year, the spacecraft—complete with heatshield backshell panel—will travel to NASA’s Plum Brook Station in Ohio for testing, then return to Kennedy for final processing and inspections.“Similar to the 1960s, we too have an opportunity to take a giant leap forward for all of humanity,” Bridenstine said. “And we are well on our way to getting this done.”Following two initial missions—Artemis 1 (uncrewed) and Artemis 2 (crewed)—Artemis 3 will launch the next American moonwalkers into “a new era of exploration,” NASA said.The agency in May selected 11 companies to conduct studies and produce prototypes of human landers for its Artmetis lunar exploration program.Over the next six months, the selected firms will study and/or develop prototypes that reduce schedule risk for the descent, transfer, and refueling elements of a potential human landing system.More on Doodle Takes You On a Journey to the Moon and BackApollo 11 Gold Medal Sells for More Than $2 Million at AuctionWatch: Video Simulates Neil Armstrong’s Cool Apollo 11 Landing View NASA Taps 11 Companies To Study, Build Human Lunar LandersTrump Proposes Another $1.6B For NASA’s Return to Moon Stay on targetlast_img read more

Eating citrus fruits may increase melanoma risk

first_imgFrequent consumption of citrus fruits like whole grapefruit and orange juice may be associated with an increased risk of melanoma, a type of skin cancer, says a large study.Analysing dietary patterns among more than 100,000 people in the US, the researchers found that melanoma risk was 36 per cent higher in people who consumed citrus fruit or juice at least 1.6 times daily compared to those who consumed them less than twice per week. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Consumption of grapefruit and oranges was not associated with an increased risk for any other non-skin cancers. “While our findings suggest that people who consume large amounts of whole grapefruit or orange juice may be at increased risk for melanoma, we need much more research before any concrete recommendations can be made,” said lead study author Shaowei Wu, postdoctoral research fellow at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. “At this time, we do not advise that people cut back on citrus—but those who consume a lot of grape and/or orange juice should be particularly careful to avoid prolonged sun exposure,” Wu noted. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe apparent link between melanoma and citrus fruit consumption may be due to high levels of substances called furocoumarins found in citrus fruits, the researchers pointed out.Prior research showed that furocoumarins make the skin more sensitive to sunlight, including to melanoma-causing ultraviolet (UV) rays.The new study involved over 100,000 men and women in the US. Over a follow-up period of up to 26 years, 1,840 study participants were diagnosed with melanoma.  Higher overall citrus fruit consumption (the total number of servings of whole grapefruit, whole oranges, and juices from those fruits) was associated with increased risk of malignant melanoma in both men and women. The association was strongest for grapefruit, followed by orange juice. The study was published online in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.last_img read more

As Housing Gains Slow Some Markets Shine Brighter

first_imgAs Housing Gains Slow, Some Markets Shine Brighter Housing metrics pulled back nationally to end the second quarter, but what’s true at the national level isn’t always true at the local level.In its June National Housing Trend Report, reported the national housing market continued to gain some strength as summer got under way, though the rate of recovery dimmed somewhat.According to the report, median list prices at the national level grew to $215,000, marking a 7.55 percent improvement over this time last year but only a 0.05 percent gain from May.Meanwhile, inventory levels declined to an estimated 1.9 million listings, a decline of nearly 1 percent from June and 8.65 percent from May.”National housing inventory is now roughly in line with June 2013 levels when rising home prices first generated a surge in market supply,” reported.Additionally, homes in June sold 5 percent faster than they did last year—a median 76 days—indicating demand remains strong as supply falters.While current and seasonal trends would suggest home sales will see a slowdown in the coming months, national indicators are masking some of the activity happening in individual markets, says Jonathan Smoke, chief economist for”Our June data shows monthly inventory picking up in markets already experiencing price increases and fast property turnover,” Smoke said. “These dynamics will result in strong home sales and extend the buying season past the usual June/July peak to later in the third quarter.”According to the report, the brightest spots for third-quarter growth are positioned all over the country, including Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Columbia, South Carolina; Spokane, Washington; and Philadelphia, among others.Though they’re geographically dispersed, the company says all of those markets have a few important traits in common: steady month-over-month inventory growth, decent price appreciation, and faster home sales as local demand outpaces supply.It’s those attributes, Smoke says, that will help propel sales moving forward.”The markets where we expect significant third quarter home sales are all very different—ranging from small to large, affordable to expensive, previously distressed to minimally affected by the downturn,” Smoke said. “Diversification in the areas experiencing healthy real estate economies is a key indicator that the housing recovery has become more sustainable.” in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Headlines, News August 6, 2014 446 Views center_img Demand Home Prices Home Sales Housing Supply 2014-08-06 Tory Barringer Sharelast_img read more
