New wrist bands can now provide insight into users emotions

first_imgLondon: Smart wearable technology that changes colour, heats up, squeezes or vibrates as your emotions are heightened has the potential to help people with affective disorders better control their feelings, a study has found. Researchers from Lancaster University in the UK have worked with smart materials on wrist-worn prototypes that can aid people diagnosed with depression, anxiety and bi-polar disorders in monitoring their emotions. Wrist bands that change colour depending upon the level of emotional arousal allow users to easily see or feel what is happening without having to refer to mobile or desktop devices, according to the study, which will be presented at Designing Interactive Systems (DIS 2019) conference in San Diego.

The researchers worked with thermochromic materials that change colour when heated up, as well as devices that vibrate or squeeze the wrist. Tests of the devices saw participants wearing the prototypes over the course of between eight and 16 hours, reporting between four and eight occasions each when it activated – during events such as playing games, working, having conversations, watching movies, laughing, relaxing and becoming scared.

Those smart materials which were both instant and constant and which had a physical rather than visual output, were most effective. “Participants started to pay attention to their in-the-moment emotional responses, realising that their moods had changed quickly and understanding what it was that was causing the device to activate. It was not always an emotional response, but sometimes other activities — such as taking part in exercise — could cause a reaction,” Umair said.last_img read more

Italy Moroccan Team Victim of Racism

first_imgTaroudnat, Morocco- A team of Moroccan immigrants playing in a minor league in Italy is considering to quite the league after its players were the target of racists attacks after rival fans told them to “go back home.”According to ANSA.it, earlier this week, a Moroccan team called “Casablanca” had decided to quit the Usip league in the eastern city of Forli after two episodes of racism. The first one was during a match against Club Juventinità di Forlimpopoli, which the Moroccans won 3-0 and the second one was when a rival team shouted at them saying “go back home Moroccans.”According to the same source, the Moroccan team has reconsidered quitting the league. “We will not withdraw. We remain in the field because otherwise, it would mean a defeat by racism,” Youssef Laazizi, a defender with Casablanca team was quoted by the same source as saying.What seemingly upset the Moroccan team is that the referee did not take any measure after the players complained to him.Following the incident, the Casablanca team has decided to send a petition to the league. “We can’t stand it any longer,” Rachid Hansal, the captain of the team was quoted by Italian media as saying.© Morocco World News.

Shopify sees big uptick in US job applicants after Trumps election CEO

TORONTO — It’s a great time for Canadian startups to attract top talent from south of the border as the U.S. government is creating an unwelcoming environment, the chief executive of Shopify says.“The Americans are doing a really great job of uninviting a lot of kinds of people who otherwise would go there,” said Tobias Lutke, who founded the e-commerce platform firm in 2004.Since U.S. President Donald Trump assumed office in January, he’s signed a number of controversial executive orders, including a ban on travel to the U.S. from several predominantly Muslim countries, and other measures, such as withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement.Lutke said Shopify (TSX:SHOP) has been receiving many more applications from job seekers in the U.S. than before the 2016 presidential election.“I think it’s as good right now as it ever has been,” he said of Shopify and other tech companies’ ability to bring talent up north.Previously, Shopify had to court talent for years to develop a relationship and convince potential employees to move to Canada, he said, but now it’s receiving unsolicited applications from all over the U.S.Lutke, who has criticized Canadian government policy in the past for seemingly hampering firms’ ability to attract international workers, said Ottawa is creating good awareness around Canada’s value of multiculturalism.Shopify provides services to more than 377,500 merchants from about 175 countries as the end of 2016, according to its most recent annual report.Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter. read more

Ottawas deficit for the year to come in 2 billion lower than

OTTAWA — The parliamentary budget watchdog is projecting the federal deficit this fiscal year will come in $2.1 billion lower than the Liberals have predicted.Yves Giroux’s office chalks up the change to higher-than-anticipated income-tax revenues that the government has collected this fiscal year, which closes in March.A report out this morning from the parliamentary budget office predicts that this year’s budget deficit will be $16 billion, less than the $18.1 billion the Liberals anticipate. U.S. trade uncertainty is holding back Canadian business investment, Bank of Canada warns Trudeau’s housing strategy is vintage Harper — it was a bad idea then, and it’s a bad idea now Had the economy been weaker or tax revenues lower, the report says, the federal deficit for the 2018-2019 fiscal year could have hit $23.2 billion when taking into account extra spending in Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s fall economic update.More than half the $7.2-billion swing in the projection is due to stronger tax revenues than Giroux predicted in the fall.The report says corporate income-tax revenues are $3 billion higher than the watchdog forecast in October. read more

Jean Coutu says rate of generic drug sales will continue to climb

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Jean Coutu says rate of generic drug sales will continue to climb above 67% MONTREAL – The Jean Coutu pharmacy chain said more than two-thirds of the drugs it dispensed in the fourth quarter were lower-cost generic alternatives to patented drugs, a ratio it expects will continue to climb as more medications are added each year.“We can expect another four molecules added to that list probably every year for next couple of years,” said chief financial officer Andre Belzile, referring to generic drugs.Jean Coutu said Wednesday it’s raising its dividend as its net profit grew 7.9 per cent to $57.7 million in its fourth quarter. The company earned 30 cents per share in the quarter ended March 1, one cent above analyst forecasts and compared with $53.5 million, or 25 cents per share, in the same quarter of 2013.Revenues were up slightly to $685.4 million in the fourth quarter compared with $682.7 million in the same quarter last year.Much of the profit increase was due to the performance of its generic drug manufacturer Pro Doc, which earned $22.4 million on $49.1 million of sales in the quarter, up from $16.7 million on $43.5 million of sales a year ago. Despite lower generic prices, Jean Coutu boosted Pro Doc’s margins to 45.6 per cent from 38.4 per cent because of volume increases and cost concessions from suppliers.Belzile said the company expects further price declines as additional cost savings pursed by governments could reduce Pro Doc’s margins to a still healthy 40 per cent. But he said the rate of price declines is diminishing, providing pharmacy chains with more predictable pricing.“The deflationary impact on generic drug prices is not going to be as bad as we experienced in the last four to five quarters,” he said during a conference call.While most customers on Quebec’s public drug program are required to substitute for lower cost generics, Jean Coutu (TSX:PJC.A) still sees volume growth opportunities from those on private drug plans.The shift could help to further narrow the gap with the U.S., where generic drugs accounted for 81.4 per cent of all prescription drugs sold last year according to U.S. retailer CVS Caremark. The proportion of generic drugs sold by Jean Coutu grew by four percentage points to 67.2 per cent in the fourth quarter. That compared to a rate of 47.4 per cent in fiscal 2009.Chief executive Francois Coutu said he expects provinces will rely on the pan-Canadian Council of the Federation to negotiate future generic price decreases after efforts by British Columbia and Alberta to act alone were unsuccessful.“I think it’s to the advantage of the province to go with that coalition because it’s co-ordinated and they may get more that way than on their own,” Coutu told analysts.The coalition negotiated that four more drugs would be added to the list of 10 generics that charge 18 per cent of the patented drug prices as of April 1, down from 25 to 40 per cent provinces and territories have been paying. Price reductions for 10 commonly used generic drugs is expected to save public drug plans $150 million a year.Irene Nattel of RBC Capital Markets said generics have been a strong contributor for Jean Coutu, accounting for all of its EBITDA growth in the fourth quarter and more than offsetting lower underlying contributions from franchising operations.“Jean Coutu remains a regional powerhouse enjoying a 33 per cent share of all prescriptions dispensed in Quebec,” she wrote in a report.The chain said its quarterly dividend will rise 17.6 per cent to 10 cents, above the analyst’s forecast for a 12-per-cent boost. It also received TSX approval to double its share purchase program next year to 8.2 million shares.For the full year, Jean Coutu earned $437 million or $2.12 per share, compared with $558.2 million or $2.57 per share in 2013. Excluding one-time items including gains from the sale of its investment in U.S. retailer Rite-Aid, Jean Coutu earned $224.3 million or $1.09 per share, compared to $211.3 million or 97 cents per share a year earlier.Revenues amounted to $2.73 billion, compared with $2.739 billion last year, a decrease of 0.2 per cent, due lower generic drug prices.The Jean Coutu Group operates a network of 413 franchised stores in Quebec, New Brunswick and Ontario under the banners of PJC Jean Coutu, PJC Clinique, PJC Sante and PJC Sante Beaute.On the Toronto Stock Exchange, its shares gained 23 cents at $21.88 in midday trading.Follow @Ross Marowits on Twitter. by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Apr 30, 2014 10:40 am MDT read more

The Thessaloniki metro tunnels are finally complete

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The president of Attiko Metro announced yesterday that the digging of the underground tunnels in Thessaloniki has been completed.According to Mr Yiannis Mylopoulos who proceeded to post photos on social media: “…100 per cent of the underground tunnels digging is complete, 80 per cent of the civil engineer projects have also been completed and 60 per cent of the total project that extends to connect Kalamaria with the Thessaloniki Metro has been executed as well.”“The tunnels, that will soon be used for the city’s metro train system joining the main city line with Kalamaria have been the most time consuming, technically challenging and expensive part of the project.”The placement of rails along a large part of the route underneath the city is underway and new rails are being placed every day which means this much awaited transport project is in the final stage. This will be a major improvement to Thessanoniki’s public transport network as traffic congestion has been an ongoing issue for the city’s residents.“The completion of the opening of the underground tunnels of the Thessaloniki Metro also happens to coincide with a tough moment for the country, following the tragedy in Eastern Attika,” Mr Mylopoulos told Athens News Agency, adding that “the company, in support of the victims, has contributed since day one sending 32 mechanics to assist with conducting autopsies at the areas affected as part of the Ministry of Infrastructure, Transport and Networks investigation.”To have a better look check out this video from Mr Mylopoulos’ Facebook: ΤΕΛΕΙΩΣΕ Η ΔΙΑΝΟΙΞΗ ΤΩΝ ΣΗΡΑΓΓΩΝ ΣΤΟ ΜΕΤΡΟ ΘΕΣΣΑΛΟΝΙΚΗΣ Ολοκληρώθηκε η διάνοιξη του συνόλου των υπόγειων σηράγγων του Μετρό της Θεσσαλονίκης, με την άφιξη και του δεύτερου Μετροπόντικα της γραμμής Καλαμαριάς, του Φρίξου, στο σταθμό 25ης Μαρτίου.

Once Upon a Time asks what is normal at NYCC

first_img Once Upon a Time creators, Adam Horowitz and Eddie Kitsis, and star Jennifer Morrison took the stage of the Hammerstein Ballroom Friday afternoon to share a little bit of what’s ahead for the fairy tale drama. After an early screening of this Sunday’s episode, the panel talked about the themes this season will explore.All the characters this year will be trying to figure out what “normal” is for them. They’re finding that solving crisis after crisis is unsustainable and eventually they’ll have to figure out what they want their everyday lives in Storybrooke to be.Emma and Hook will also take their relationship further this season. That sound you just heard was every Oncer reading this collectively yelling “Finally!” Even on the show, Hook brings up just how slow they’ve been taking their relationship. Morrison said one of the interesting things they get to explore this season is how Hook and Emma handle real-life relationship stuff. They’ve faced evil after evil together, but what happens when they get annoyed at each other for completely mundane couple reasons?Emma is also dealing with a lot this season, as we’ve already seen. Morrison says the character went from having a fairly normal-ish life to being the savior of an entire town. She’s solved countless life and death situations without any downtime to process that. One of the things Morrison most enjoys about this season is that they’re now dealing with the post-traumatic stress being a savior causes.Cinderella’s story is featured in this week’s Once Upon a Time. (Photo: Screenshot via YouTube)As for this weekend’s episode, we learned the real story of Cinderella and saw why exactly the Evil Queen wants all the untold stories to play out. They generally don’t end happily. Snow White and Charming also start to figure out what they want to do with their lives assuming the crises ever stop. Minor spoiler: Snow wants to teach again and has some decent ideas about how to get a school running. Also, as you’d expect, a character makes a really dumb decision at the end that will have most of you screaming, “whyyyyyy?!” at your television.One of the best things about this show continues to be the relationship between Emma, Snow, and Regina. Morrison says it’s her favorite part of Once Upon a Time. The fact that the show centers on three women fighting for each other rather than against makes her proud to be a part of it and she says it’s even inspired her to be a better friend in her own life.While they obviously couldn’t tell us everything that happens this season, they did give us some clues. Next Sunday, we’ll learn the origin of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Surprise: Rumplestiltskin is involved. When will people learn to stop trusting that guy? We’ll also finally see Aladdin and Jasmine again, which I’ve been waiting for since the season began.Beyond that, we will get an answer as to the identity of the hooded figure who kills Emma in her dreams… by Christmas. Until then, continue to speculate wildly.

Samsungs GestureOperated TVs May Soon Switch On Your Living Room Lights

first_img The misplaced TV remote may need not ever be found.Samsung is honing motion sensor technology for a new crop of smart television sets that can reportedly operate with the mere flick of a finger.The gesture-operated devices, which could launch as soon as 2016, may also let users control other household appliances, too — such as switching on lights or turning on nearby stereo systems.The startup behind these developments, VTouch, is currently in talks with Samsung, its chief executive, Kim Seok-joon, confirmed to The Wall Street Journal.Related: This New Technology Will Let You Make Purchases Directly From Your TVThe technology works with finger movements that are interpreted through programmed cameras, which then send out signals to a network of connected devices, he said.“It will be a new interface that drops the usage of cursors, allowing the user to point to objects that exist beyond the TV screen.”VTouch software could represent a more groundbreaking innovation for Samsung’s television division than the vast, curved sets it unveiled at CES. TVs accounted for 17 percent of the company’s fourth-quarter revenues, The Journal reports.While Samsung’s current web-connected TVs feature hand-waving commands that can turn up the volume and search through menus, VTouch technology deepens accuracy by tracking both user hand and eye motions to filter false commands.Related: What You Can Learn From Michael Bay’s Embarrassing Presentation Mishap Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global 2 min read Register Now »center_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

It’s a very community driven club and members try to support each other. I saw this as an opportunity to explain the benefits and expertise I can provide clients as a personal travel manager and the event provided an occasion to reconnect with the golfing community and also to meet members of the wider public,” she says.All smiles as David Cunneen (left) wins the grand prize of a Royal Caribbean Cruise with personal travel manager Annalize Troost and TravelManagers’ Executive General Manager Michael GazalTroost enlisted the support of Royal Caribbean International who co-promoted a stand with TravelManagers on the fourth hole. Royal Caribbean International ‘s Nicole Stojic, Inside Sales Coordinator and Key Account Manager Mark Rheinbay were at the two-day golf event.“I offered a variety of worldwide special travel promotions and Royal Caribbean handed out product brochures. Nicole and Mark were extremely supportive of my sponsorship initiative and golfers were extremely interested to learn more about cruising. I certainly valued their commitment and wouldn’t have attempted this event without them.”Troost also received on the ground support from her state based business partnership manager Julie Anderson and TravelManagers national partnership manager Suzanne Laister.Part of the sponsorship agreement allowed for four teams to enter into the PRO-AM tournament. Three teams each consisted of three of Troost’s clients and an accompanying golf pro with the fourth team comprised of TravelManagers’ Executive General Manager Michael Gazal, President of the Pennant Hills Golf Club Alan Watson, Ron Hutt, another of Troost’s clients and the golf pro Mirim Nagl from Germany.Troost views her presence at the golfing tournament as a valuable experience in marketing.“I have added 260 new subscribers to my eNewsletter and obtained numerous new business contacts. I have created a special golf database with communication being sent to everybody who completed a competition entry form. I have already secured a group booking for 2017 and received several enquiries from potential new clients. All of this from my first sponsorship event, I couldn’t be happier.”A golf day is hard work! Taking a break (from left to right) is TravelManagers’ Executive General Manager Michael Gazal, personal travel manager Annalize Troost, Suzanne Laister TravelManagers’ national partnership manager and business partnership manager Julie Anderson.Gazal congratulates Troost’s ability to find a way to connect with people at a grass roots level.“We applaud Annalize thinking outside the square and taking the opportunity to immerse herself within her local community. It’s this level of innovation and forward thinking that makes TravelManagers’ personal travel managers stand out from the rest and the results speak for themselves.”Troost also received marketing exposure by providing two travel prizes on the day.“The major prize was a cruise for two in a Balcony Cabin on the Royal Caribbean ‘Explorer of the Seas’. Second prize was a $200 discount cruise voucher. The format was a competition draw – not based on golf score or ability, so everybody had a fair and equal chance of winning.”The Golf PRO AM event was just the start of Troost’s networking opportunities. Through members association, Troost also provided sponsorship to the ten-year anniversary MonSTaR Gala Event held on 18 March following the annual MonSTaR Cup charity golf event held at Pennant Hills.“The winner of the second prize being a $200 discount cruise voucher was won by Mark Golding who runs the charity golf day to raise funds and awareness for supporting sufferers of Motor Neurone Disease. This is the value of networking, opportunities will come,” says Troost.With Troost’s first sponsorship and marketing experience being such a resounding success, it will come as no surprise she is planning to participate again next year.“It was such a great day, meeting new and old friends. The fact they are now my clients definitely is the icing on the cake. I can’t wait to be part of the Golf PRO AM again next year,” she says with a smile.For more information or to speak to someone confidentially about TravelManagers please contact Suzanne Laister on 1800 019 599.About TravelManagers TravelManagers operates in all Australian States and is a wholly owned subsidiary of House of Travel, Australasia’s largest independent travel company which has a forecast turnover of $1.5 billion for 2015.
