Country Alison Yin/AP Images for HHMI This week, cell biologist Ron Vale was named executive director of Janelia Research Campus, the in-house research arm of the $20 billion Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Vale, now at the University of California, San Francisco, has been part of HHMI’s cadre of roughly 300 investigators at institutions for the past 24 years. Next January, he will replace fruit fly geneticist Gerald Rubin, Janelia’s director since its founding in 2003.When the now–$130 million Janelia opened its doors on the site of a former farm in Ashburn, Virginia, some questioned its narrow focus on neurobiology and suggested the funding should go toward adding HHMI investigators. But the institute is now a well-established research center with 41 small groups and 190 total lab staff.In late 2017, HHMI announced some tweaks: Focus areas will be limited to 15 years. The institute is refocusing its work on brain circuitry to study the mechanisms of cognition. And a new research area will be added every 5 years, starting with one to be chosen by an ongoing open competition. One constant will be the institute’s work on tools such as novel microscopes.

He’s also known for his open science projects, such as ASAPbio, a nonprofit he founded that promotes the sharing of preprints among biologists. Vale, who will also be an HHMI vice president, recently spoke with ScienceInsider about his new job. (The interview has been edited for brevity and clarity.)Q: What appealed to you about this position?A: I’m greatly interested in science culture and that’s one of the reasons I was very attracted. Janelia is a very interesting, kind of unique experiment that allows scientists to do their work in unique ways, from small groups that work together to promoting young scientists, to an environment that rewards technology and tool building. Doing that experiment well is important for scientists elsewhere as well. The impact could be much greater than that of Janelia itself.Q: Were you involved in setting the 15-year time frame for Janelia focus areas?A: It began before the search [for my position]. But all of the changes are also really great … I’m fully on board with them. It’s a very important balance between having enough time to take on important and potentially high-risk problems, but also from a counterpoint, having some dynamicity to the organization and the institute.Q: What if a field is just hitting cruising speed after 15 years?A: No doubt things are going to be learned, but starting off, 15 years is a nice amount of time. It promotes risk-taking and willingness to take on something ambitious at a much longer time scale than the standard 4- or 5-year grant. At the same time, there is some sense of urgency. I think some sense of a time window can be very healthy for people to feel like they should strive to succeed at the highest level and get as much done as they can in that period of time.Q: So, will part of your job be moving people out and bringing new ones in?A: I think the challenge of this dynamic model is people are coming in, projects are coming in and leaving but at any given moment you want the place humming like a well-integrated system, where everyone’s communicating well, where it doesn’t feel like siloed projects. There’s going to be a continuous remodeling of Janelia in terms of projects and ideas. It will be fun for me and my goal is to make it fun for everyone working at Janelia.last_img read more

Next Up Game Consoles Is There Anything Google Cant Do Badly

first_imgIt’s interesting to compare Google and Amazon — two of the most incredibly powerful companies in the world. Amazon brings out product after product, with more successes than failures. Google largely buys companies and then loses interest in what they do.Amazon is a retailer, and profit is built into its efforts, while Google largely lives off selling users’ information and providing access to content that doesn’t belong to it — kind of like living off an allowance from parents who don’t really want to give it but don’t see an alternative.Google’s latest effort is rumored to be a gaming system to compete with PlayStation and Xbox (but with streamed games). I expect it will end badly, largely because Google won’t want to expend the effort to make it successful and will lose interest within a brief period of time.I’ll share some thoughts on Google’s next likely failed effort and close with my product of the week: the Miix 630, a new tablet-forward Always Connected PC from Lenovo. Lenovo Miix 630 The opinions expressed in this article are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of ECT News Network. Google really doesn’t have much of a history of product success. Yes, YouTube and Android — both largely acquisitions — have been successful, but Google gives them away and makes its money selling ads and usage data. Googl’es Home smart speaker hasn’t exactly set the world on fire, and Nest, which it purchased, seems to be dropping into obscurity. Google Glass was a train wreck, and Google+ looks like Westworld at the end of Season 2 (mostly dead people).The irony for Google is that even though the company subsists largely on revenue from other companies’ marketing, it doesn’t seem to understand how to market itself. The firm is like a drug dealer who makes money from drugs but wouldn’t touch the stuff himself.This is not to say the company’s product offerings are bad — its smart speaker is one of the best in market. Google just doesn’t get that you must build demand for a product, or people will buy something else that they have been made to want more.This isn’t an uncommon problem for companies made up of engineers. In Google’s case, the result is a complete lack of human interaction skills and a lack of understanding of both the need and the process to build demand. Yet Google still seems to want to create retail products that people will buy.I doubt Google’s efforts in gaming will be successful, even though I expect the hardware to be rather impressive. The issue for this class is that you generally end up with an interesting laptop computer but the tablet capability sucks, so no one uses it. Three factors — battery life, weight and screen size — were less than ideal.The Always Connected PC effort is based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835, not on Intel’s x86, to address the battery life issue, and this latest offering gets up to a whopping 20 hours of life. For a lot of folks that means up to three days of work off charger.In tablet form, it is under 2 pounds, so it is very light. However, there is still a problem with the size of the device, given its near 13-inch screen, which is ideal for work but too large for most who want to use it as a handheld device to read watch movies.This means the product is much better for those who actually want to use the stylus and either write or draw on it. It also would be handy for reading digital legal documents and contracts, particularly if you must annotate them.At US$899 this isn’t a cheap date, but it does come with both an active stylus and a decent keyboard. About the keyboard: Most that come with tablet-forward designs tend to be a bit flimsy, but this one is nice and solid, so you feel comfortable typing on it.This 2-in-1 likely would be ideal for an editor, writer, artist, or anyone who mostly wants to create documents or pen annotate them, work on contracts, or draw. This is likely one of the best portable products for a graphic artist.Because the Lenovo Miix 630 is likely the closest thing to a true 2-in-1 currently in market, and because it could be a godsend for certain users, it’s my product of the week. Google’s Pattern Defining the Console Game Market Wrapping Up: Insanity center_img To drive console sales, what’s typically needed is a hit game that is paid for by the console manufacturer — for example, the epic Xbox game Halo. This is because people won’t buy a game console unless there is something they want to play on it, and developers won’t build a game until there is a critical mass of gaming consoles in market.It is the typical cart and horse issue, where a lack of unique content can cripple a game console rollout. This is one of the big problems with virtual reality at the moment. There really isn’t a VR title that folks are excited about yet, and thus the related technology has been struggling.Once you have a hot title, you still have to market both the game and the console with specials, bundles, and compelling ads that get people excited. You’ll still have a huge disadvantage relative to the existing vendors, because their customers don’t have to buy a new console to play new games — your customers do. Given that parents buy a critical mass of these things, when given a choice to buy a game for a console they already have purchased or a game that requires a new console too, the parents generally will pick the cheaper path.This means you have to do a lot of hardware seeding so that influencers are talking and writing about how much fun they are having on the new hardware. This creates envy, and envy can get people to open their wallets and buy into a new platform. Even with everything in place, it can take up to five years of significant losses before a market comes around to your product. My second Always Connected PC, theLenovo Miix 630 comes closest to the ideal 2-in-1 concept that Intel ironically brought to market in response to the iPad’s success. The console game market has three major players: Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo. Both Microsoft and Sony largely use the razer/blade model, in that they either sell their consoles at a loss or for cost, and make money on a percentage of game sales. Nintendo is a bit different in that it sells its console for a profit and also makes money from game sales.To increase profits and revenue opportunity, the entire industry has been exploring in-game purchases with mixed results. These tend to detract from game play and can make the related titles less attractive, so the financial benefits of the approach often have been offset by lower game revenues. Still, the practice does allow for lower-priced games that are still profitable. Breaking Into the Console Game Market I’m back to that definition of insanity — you know the one. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. The list of meh products from Google is pretty impressive, so you’d think its leaders would step back and try to figure out why success with those efforts has been fleeting. That isn’t Google, though.Instead, the company will throw a bunch of cash and resources at this effort, likely get a nice initial spike, and then after 12 to 36 months lose interest in the effort and leave the poor folks who bought its console hanging out to dry while it moves to its next soon-to-fail effort.The lesson Google — and sadly many other companies — has failed to learn is that you have to fund and resource your way to success. Just spending a lot of money doesn’t get you there, and if you aren’t willing to make the effort, then you’d be better off doing something else.By the way, this will be Google’s second effort. The first one, Nexus, came out in 2014 and was mostly forgotten by 2015. Rob Enderle has been an ECT News Network columnist since 2003.

Study investigates influence of different opioids on driving performance

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Dec 5 2018Taking opioids for the treatment of pain has been associated with increased risks of crashing among drivers, but it is unknown whether this applies to all opioids or pertains to specific opioids only. A new British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology study found that the influence of single analgesic doses of methadone and buprenorphine–two different opioids–on driving performance was mild and below the impairment threshold of a blood alcohol concentration of 0.5 mg ml-1.Related StoriesOpioids are major cause of pregnancy-related deaths in UtahStudy: Dozens of counties in the U.S. are at highest risk for opioid deathsParental opioid use doubles the risk of suicide attempts by their childrenBoth opioids produced impairments of cognitive task performance and increased sleepiness at the highest dose, however. Four out of the 22 participants in the study stopped their on-road driving test while under the influence of either opioid due to sleepiness.The findings indicate that it is impossible to state that use of buprenorphine and methadone will not impair driving in any patient. Consequently, patients should always be informed about the potential driving impairment that might be caused by buprenorphine and methadone.”For the first time an actual on-road driving study has been performed to investigate the acute effects of opioids in drug-naïve persons on driving. The results tell us that caution is required when initiating treatment with these drugs,” said lead author Dr. Maren Cecilie Strand, of Oslo University Hospital, in Norway.

Hepatitis Cinfected patients with a history of liver cancer can be treated

first_img Source:https://www.utsouthwestern.edu/newsroom/articles/year-2019/hepatitis-c.html Reviewed by Alina Shrourou, B.Sc. (Editor)Jan 18 2019A large, multi-center study refutes earlier suggestions that antiviral drugs for treating hepatitis C may lead to a higher recurrence of liver cancer.Researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center studied the records of patients who had been successfully treated for liver cancer at 31 medical centers in North America, comparing those who were and were not given direct-acting antivirals for hepatitis C. The study found no significant difference in the recurrence of liver cancer between the two groups.Similarly, the study found no difference in the aggressiveness of the cancer in those patients who did experience a recurrence.”Our study was inspired by a single-center study from Spanish investigators in 2016. That study gained a lot of press and sparked fear about treating liver cancer patients for their hepatitis C,” said Dr. Amit Singal, Associate Professor of Internal Medicine and Medical Director of the Liver Tumor Program. “Based on these new data, providers can feel reassured that it is safe to treat hepatitis C in these patients and allow them to receive the known benefits of hepatitis C therapy.”Related StoriesNew protein target for deadly ovarian cancerStudy reveals link between inflammatory diet and colorectal cancer riskLiving with advanced breast cancerSome 3.2 million individuals in the U.S., the large majority of them baby boomers, have chronic hepatitis C infection. Many of these individuals struggle with inflammation of the liver and impaired liver function, as well as cirrhosis, or scarring of liver tissue. Since 2013, effective antiviral drugs have been available to treat hepatitis C infection.Chronic hepatitis C infection is also one of the leading causes of liver cancer. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, half of all individuals with liver cancer have underlying chronic hepatitis C infection.The rate of new cases of liver cancer has been rising steadily in recent decades, and the state of Texas has one of the highest rates of occurrence in the country.When liver cancer is diagnosed early, it can be effectively treated with surgery, ablation, or radiation therapy. Sometimes liver cancer patients have their tumor successfully removed, but the underlying chronic hepatitis C infection remains and continues to impair liver function further.In this study, published in the journal Gastroenterology, 42 percent of liver cancer survivors who were treated with direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) experienced a recurrence of their cancer, compared with 59 percent of patients who were not treated with antivirals.”Our results suggest that use of DAA therapies is safe and potentially beneficial in hepatitis C-infected patients with a history of liver cancer,” said Dr. Singal, who holds the David Bruton, Jr. Professorship in Clinical Cancer Research and is Clinical Chief of Hepatology.​last_img read more

FDA grants clearance to Hologics assay for detection of common sexually transmitted

first_imgReviewed by Kate Anderton, B.Sc. (Editor)Jan 23 2019Hologic, Inc. announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted clearance for its Aptima® Mycoplasma genitalium assay, the first and only FDA-cleared test to detect this under-recognized but increasingly common sexually transmitted infection (STI). This newest Aptima assay joins a growing suite of market-leading tests offered by Hologic to help combat the rise of STIs in the U.S.Hologic’s first-in-category assay, cleared through the FDA’s De Novo request process, provides laboratories with a highly sensitive and specific molecular diagnostic method to identify infections and enable effective treatment.First discovered in the early 1980s, Mycoplasma genitalium (M. genitalium) was listed as an emerging public health threat by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2015. Current estimates indicate that M. genitalium may affect more than 15 percent of men and women in certain high-risk populations, and its prevalence is growing.3 Because of the lack of an FDA-cleared test until now, M. genitalium has often been misdiagnosed as other STIs and, in some cases, treated with the wrong antibiotics. This often leaves the underlying infection untreated, which can lead to increased transmission and recurrent infections.”Although Mycoplasma genitalium is typically more common than gonorrhea, there is very little public awareness of this rising sexually transmitted infection, which can cause serious and potentially devastating health problems,” said Damon Getman, Ph.D., senior principal research scientist and director of research at Hologic. “The introduction of the Aptima Mycoplasma genitalium assay gives healthcare professionals the opportunity to provide optimal care for their patients and reflects Hologic’s commitment to developing innovative solutions that address emerging public health threats.”In men, M. genitalium symptoms may include urethritis, the swelling and inflammation of the urethra. In women, M. genitalium has been linked to cervicitis, the swelling and inflammation of the cervix. If left untreated, infections can lead to infertility in women and increased risk of HIV acquisition and transmission. Patients infected with M. genitalium may be asymptomatic or experience symptoms similar to those associated with a chlamydial infection, so accurate diagnostic tests are critical to help healthcare professionals and their laboratory partners identify these bacterial infections and treat them appropriately. Research has shown as many as 50 percent of women and 42 percent of men with M. genitalium may have an antibiotic-resistant strain, further emphasizing the importance of early detection and regular screening.Related StoriesChronic inflammation removes motivation by reducing dopamine in the brainPipettes of the Future: Automation for AccelerationBioTek introduces new Scratch Assay Starter Kit”We are tremendously proud of the team of scientists and engineers who developed this assay,” said Tom West, Hologic’s division president, Diagnostic Solutions. “They exemplify Hologic’s dedication to help arm laboratories and healthcare professionals with superior diagnostic tools to identify harmful infections, and this FDA clearance represents another milestone in furthering that mission.”In published research, Hologic’s ribosomal RNA-based M. genitalium assay displayed greater sensitivity than lab-developed or CE-marked DNA-based tests . Hologic introduced the first FDA-cleared diagnostic test kit for STIs in the 1990s using its innovative RNA-based technology. Since then, Hologic has expanded its Aptima STI portfolio to include assays for chlamydia, gonorrhea, human papillomavirus (HPV), herpes simplex viruses (HSV 1&2), trichomonas, and Zika virus. The Aptima virology portfolio also includes quantitative assays for the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis B and C (HBV and HCV). All are available on Hologic’s fully-automated Panther® system. In 2017, the Aptima assays helped an estimated 40 million patients obtain fast, high-quality test results.Including the first IVD for the detection of Mycoplasma genitalium, Hologic’s Panther and Panther Fusion® system now offers 14 FDA-cleared or approved assays that detect more than 20 pathogens, making it the only high-throughput molecular diagnostic platform in the United States to combine comprehensive sexual health, cervical health, viral load, respiratory testing and open channel10 functionality on a fully automated system.Source: https://www.hologic.com/last_img read more

Pepperpicking robot demonstrates its skills in greenhouse labour automation

first_img First ever working sweet-pepper harvesting robot The team of experts involved in the project recently gave a live demonstration of the technology in a commercial greenhouse in the Netherlands. A video on the project website shows the robot in action. The video explains that the SWEEPER robot consists of an autonomous mobile platform with a robotic arm holding an end effector for fruit harvesting.As stated in a press release on the project website, the robot is “designed to operate in a single stem row cropping system, with a crop having non-clustered fruits and little leaf occlusion.” According to the same press release, preliminary test results showed that by using commercially available crop modified to mimic the required conditions, the robot harvests ripe bell peppers in 24 seconds with a success rate of 62 %. In laboratory experiments it was possible to harvest 1 fruit in less than 15 seconds, excluding platform movement.The ongoing SWEEPER project builds on CROPS (Intelligent sensing and manipulation for sustainable production and harvesting of high value crops, clever robots for crops), a previous EU-funded project. The CROPS software modules based on the robotic operating system is maintained and expanded in SWEEPER. In addition, the gripper end effector is retained. SWEEPER improved on CROPS’ pepper harvester technology by building in sensors and advancing algorithms to improve the localisation of fruit and the detection of fruit maturity, as explained on CORDIS. “The robot can now detect obstacles and can calculate a collision-free path to the fruit, allowing maximum free space to grip and cut off the fruit.” Post-harvest logisticsThe project team also plans to add a conveyor belt and harvest trolley to the SWEEPER system and automate post-harvest fruit and vegetable packing logistics. The SWEEPER (Sweet Pepper Harvesting Robot) project’s main objective is to “put the first-generation greenhouse harvesting robots onto the market,” its website explains. It addresses some of the issues that growers face in the greenhouse sector, including labour costs, availability, food safety and quality.Project partners expect the commercial sweet pepper-harvesting robot to be available within a few years. They also anticipate that the technology will be transferred to other crops. The SWEEPER team notes that further research is needed to make the robot work even faster and reach a higher harvest success rate. The project brings together a wide range of disciplines. These include horticulture, horticultural engineering, machine vision, sensing, robotics, control, intelligent systems, software architecture, system integration and greenhouse crop management.

FLOURISH Userfocused driverless car project releases latest research findings

first_img Provided by University of Bristol Credit: University of Bristol FLOURISH TrialsThe members of the FLOURISH consortium have developed rigorous tests and trials designed to examine both the experience of older adults and the technical functionality of CAVs, with a focus on data and secure communications. The project conducts its user-focused trials using a simulator and a pod, building a comprehensive understanding of what is required to provide a mobility solution which is positively received by older adults.Specially designed and simulated scenarios enable the monitoring and post-trial evaluation of participants’ responses to a range of issues with a focus on HMI usability, evaluated using physiological, cognitive and attitudinal factors. The same scenarios are then replicated in the FLOURISH pod to validate the findings from the simulator trial in a real-world urban network setting.The FLOURISH car trials are conducted in Bristol and South Gloucestershire. The first car trial tested a connected vehicle network and associated technologies in a complex urban environment. Vehicle-to-Infrastructure communications between the autonomous vehicle and roadside units were examined. The trial assessed message delivery, the distance over which messages can be successfully sent (depending on the local environment) and the time between the sending and receipt of messages. It also tested success against the performance level of the transceivers, to develop an understanding of the impact of the communication equipment’s performance on the functionality of the communication service.Legal and insuranceFLOURISH has also released its Legal and Insurance Report today, which supports the findings of the user-focused trials that easy interaction with the vehicle is key to building trust. The report focuses on cyber security and data protection and makes a number of recommendations to help improve trust in the technology, including creating a comprehensive data map so people can understand how and where their data is shared.The Future for FLOURISHTracey concludes: “Future simulator and pod trials will focus on gaining further insights into what older adults need from CAVs, looking at additional HMI features, including voice recognition. Future car trials will build on the previous trials to further test the CAV communication network, cooperative services and associated technologies.” More information: To find out more about FLOURISH, see the project website: www.flourishmobility.com/about-flourish Citation: FLOURISH: User-focused driverless car project releases latest research findings (2018, October 24) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-10-flourish-user-focused-driverless-car-latest.html The outcomes from these trials are expected to provide the basis for the development of a future communications architecture for CAVs. Driverless cars are forcing cities to become smart The West-of-England-based FLOURISH driverless car research and development project has today released its mid-project trials report detailing its latest findings and what they mean for the future deployment of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) on the UK road network. Credit: FLOURISH Explore further The University of Bristol’s Professor Robert Piechocki said: “We are on the cusp of the biggest revolution on our roads since the advent of the internal combustion engine. Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAV) promise to deliver safe, efficient, inclusive and environmentally responsible transportation services. However future smart vehicles will require smart infrastructure to fulfil all the promised potentials. Roadside sensing (via lidar, radar, video etc.) will enhance road safety; virtual and dynamic signage and regulations communicated wirelessly will orchestrate traffic flow and resolve contention at intersections. The Flourish project attempts to provide the first glimpse of that future.”Tracey Poole, FLOURISH Project Manager, said: “Our trials explore what older adults need to be able to interact with CAVs with confidence. At a technical level, FLOURISH supports this aspiration by investigating how data can be used to optimise regional transport networks and how to ensure secure communications between autonomous vehicles and the surrounding transport infrastructure.”The early findings from this user research suggest that older adults prefer to use an uncluttered and highly intuitive Human-Machine Interface (HMI) to interact with CAVs. The results also indicate that trial participants’ trust in the CAV is optimised when they have the option of receiving journey management information from the vehicle in both an audio and visual form. These findings will help inform future HMI designs.Furthermore, the project’s investigations into the dependability of communications and message handling between autonomous vehicles and roadside assets have spanned signal coverage, reliability of transmission and cyber responsiveness.Under the trial conditions, the maximum distance for the successful communication of messages was 472 metres, with some non-line-of-sight coverage achieved. Transmission reliability, measured in terms of the awareness horizon, showed a rapid drop-off in the delivery of reliable communications beyond 120 metres. 95% of all messages were received within 778 milliseconds. The data gathered has provided a benchmark against which the performance of a wide range of Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) services can be evaluated. This document is subject to copyright.

Documents show Facebook used user data as competitive weapon Update

The documents show internal discussions about linking data to revenue. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik, File) This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. The cache includes emails from Zuckerberg and other key members of his staff. The emails show Zuckerberg and other executives scheming to leverage user data to favor companies not considered to be threats and to identify potential acquisitions.Collins said the emails raise important issues, particularly around the use of the data of Facebook users. “The idea of linking access to friends’ data to the financial value of the developers’ relationship with Facebook is a recurring feature of the documents,” Collins said.The committee’s summary said the company used surveys of what mobile app customers were using to decide which companies to acquire. It also said Facebook knew that an update to its Android mobile app phone system—which enabled the Facebook app to collect user call logs—would be controversial.”To mitigate any bad PR, Facebook planned to make it as hard as possible for users to know that this was one of the underlying features of the upgrade of their app,” the summary said.Facebook executives clearly understand the material is valuable. An unsigned memo setting policy for a system upgrade known as “Platform 3.0” rejected anyone who could be construed as a competitor.

The British Parliament has released some 250 pages worth of documents that show Facebook considered charging developers for data access. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez, File) In a Facebook post , Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg sought to put the documents in context. “Of course, we don’t let everyone develop on our platform,” he wrote. “We blocked a lot of sketchy apps. We also didn’t allow developers to use our platform to replicate our functionality or grow their services virally in a way that creates little value for people on Facebook.”The U.K. committee seized the documents from app developer Six4Three, maker of a now-defunct bikini-picture search app. Six4Three acquired the files as part of a U.S. lawsuit that accuses Facebook of deceptive, anti-competitive business practices. The documents remain under court seal in the U.S.In a summary of key issues pertaining to the documents, the committee said Facebook “whitelisted,” or made exceptions for, companies such as Airbnb and Netflix, giving them continued access to users’ “friends” even after the tech giant announced changes in 2015 to end the practice.”Facebook have clearly entered into whitelisting agreements with certain companies, which meant that after the platform changes in 2014/15 they maintained full access to friends data,” the committee said in a statement. “It is not clear that there was any user consent for this, nor how Facebook decided which companies should be whitelisted or not.” Facebook mulled charging for access to user data The parliament’s media committee accused Facebook on Wednesday of cutting special deals with some app developers to give them more access to data, while icing out others that it viewed as potential rivals. In other documents, company executives discussed ways to obfuscate how the company was collecting and exploiting user data.The committee released more than 200 pages of documents on the tech giant’s internal discussions about the value of users’ personal information. While they mostly cover the period between 2012 and 2015 —the first three years after Facebook went public—they offer a rare glimpse into the company’s inner workings and the extent to which it used people’s data to make money while publicly vowing to protect their privacy.Facebook said the documents are misleading and that the information they contain is “only part of the story.””Like any business, we had many internal conversations about the various ways we could build a sustainable business model for our platform,” the company said in a statement. “But the facts are clear: We’ve never sold people’s data.” Citation: Documents show Facebook used user data as competitive weapon (Update) (2018, December 5) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-12-uk-parliament-internal-facebook-documents.html In this file photo dated March 29, 2018, the logo for social media giant Facebook, appears on screens at the Nasdaq MarketSite, in New York’s Times Square. The British Parliament’s media committee seized confidential Facebook documents from a developer and on Wednesday Dec. 5, 2018, has released a cache of documents that show Facebook considered charging developers for data access. (AP Photo/Richard Drew, FILE) In this May 1, 2018, file photo, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg makes the keynote speech at F8, Facebook’s developer conference in San Jose, Calif. The British Parliament has released some 250 pages worth of documents that show Facebook considered charging developers for data access. The documents show internal discussions about linking data to revenue. “There’s a big question on where we get the revenue from,” Zuckerberg said in one email. “Do we make it easy for devs to use our payments/ad network but not require them? Do we require them? Do we just charge a rev share directly and let devs who use them get a credit against what they owe us? It’s not at all clear to me here that we have a model that will actually make us the revenue we want at scale.” (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez, File) “There are a small number of developers whom no amount of sharing to FB or monetary value can justify giving them access to Platform,” the memo said. “These developers do not want to participate in the ecosystem we have created, but rather build their own ecosystem at the expense of our users, other developers and, of course, us. That is something that we will not allow.”The documents also suggest Facebook would jealously safeguard its interests. In a January 2013 email exchange, Zuckerberg signed off on cutting access to Twitter’s Vine video-producing app, which had allowed users to find friends via Facebook.”Unless anyone raises objections,” Facebook Vice President Justin Osofsky wrote, the company would cut Vine’s access to users’ friend networks. “We’re prepared reactive PR.””Yup, go for it,” Zuckerberg replied.The documents also suggest robust internal discussions about linking data to revenue.”There’s a big question on where we get the revenue from,” Zuckerberg said in one email. “Do we make it easy for (developers) to use our payments/ad network but not require them? Do we require them? Do we just charge a (revenue) share directly and let (developers) who use them get a credit against what they owe us? It’s not at all clear to me here that we have a model that will actually make us the revenue we want at scale.” The documents “raise important questions about how Facebook treats users’ data, their policies for working with app developers, and how they exercise their dominant position in the social media market,” said committee chair Damian Collins. “We don’t feel we have had straight answers from Facebook on these important issues, which is why we are releasing the documents.” Internal Facebook documents released by a U.K. parliamentary committee offer the clearest evidence yet that the social network has used its enormous trove of user data as a competitive weapon, often in ways designed to keep its users in the dark.

Adidas loses EU court battle over three stripe design

first_img The three parallel stripes seen adorning everything from running shoes to sports bags and the sleeves of t-shirts are “an ordinary figurative mark”, the General Court of the European Union ruled.The court, the EU’s second highest tribunal, upheld a 2016 ruling by the bloc’s intellectual property regulator cancelling the registration of the three-stripe design as a trademark following a challenge by a Belgian shoe company.”The General Court of the EU confirms the invalidity of the Adidas EU trade mark which consists of three parallel stripes applied in any direction,” the court said in a statement.Adidas had not proved the motif had acquired a “distinctive character” throughout the 28 countries of the bloc that would qualify for legal protection, the court said.”The mark is not a pattern mark composed of a series of regularly repetitive elements, but an ordinary figurative mark,” the court said.The ruling is the latest round in a long legal tussle between Adidas and Belgian rival Shoe Branding Europe, which as far back as 2009 won trademark status for a two-stripe design, triggering court action from the German firm.Adidas said in a statement it was “disappointed” with the ruling, but said it only applied to one specific version of the motif—three thick black lines in parallel separated by two thinner white lines.The ruling “does not impact on the broad scope of protection that Adidas has on its well-known 3-Stripe mark in various forms in Europe,” the company said.”Whilst we are disappointed with the decision, we are further evaluating it and are welcoming the useful guidance that the court will give us for protecting our 3-Stripe mark applied to our products in whichever direction in the future.”Adidas said it had not decided whether to appeal against Wednesday’s decision at the European Court of Justice, the bloc’s highest court. German sportswear giant Adidas on Wednesday lost a legal battle to trademark its “three stripe” motif in the EU, as a court ruled the design was not distinctive enough to deserve protection.

EE industry – the golden goose of Malaysia

first_img Related News Related News Nation 07 Jul 2019 S&P’s rating demonstrates confidence in Malaysia’s economic outlook, says Guan Eng Comics 21h ago Kee’s World – July 13, 2019 – Star2.com It is not sheer coincidence that Malaysia stands as the seventh largest E&E exporter in the world today. As a gateway to trade, the E&E industry continues to be a key driver of industrial development and contributes significantly to GDP growth, export earnings, investment and employment. In short, Malaysia’s rapid industrialisation and high ranking among the top group of trading nations in the world were mainly contributed by this industry.The E&E industry remains the leading segment in the manufacturing sector which produces semiconductors, electronic equipment for industries and electronic products for customers worldwide.Last year, this industry contributed 38% of the total exports with a trade surplus of RM119bil, which marked the highest among all the sub-sectors for the manufacturing sector. The trade surplus has entered into the 253rd consecutive month since the Asian financial crisis, due to export-orientedness of E&E, as measured by the more than 45% contribution to the overall manufacturing exports.The almost RM120bil surplus level in the E&E industry equals the total overall trade surplus for 2018!Not only does this reflect that the E&E industry is the only sub-sector in the manufacturing sector that has a trade surplus, it also shows clearly that without the industry’s contribution, Malaysia would register a trade deficit. Worse still, it could also lead to a current account deficit that does not augur well for Malaysia’s sovereign ratings.Here is where the crucial question arises. Can the economy power ahead without the contribution of E&E? Certainly not, based on the successful growth of the ecosystem that has been in place, one which multinational corporations (MNCs) played a crucial role.The MNCs kept pace by reinvesting in the state-of-the-art technology, and made the manufacturing and its processes much more productive, with added automation and computing power. Hence, the manufacturing processes deal with the intricacies of the high-end technology from micro to nano, and the testing of such complex products.Semiconductors will continue to spearhead the growth of the industry on the back of demand in the usage of mobile devices, storage devices, opto-electronics, embedded technology, data analytics, artificial intelligence and 5G.With the government’s push, E&E emerged as a strategic industry, which led to a wave of investments and a reversal in the unemployment level, not to mention multiplier effects. In a recent study on the electronics industry by Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman, it was reported that in 2017, the added value at constant price was RM67.75bil and the employment was at 485,000. In 2015, the output multiplier for the electronic sector was ranked at 2/36.This industry started in 1972 from labour-intensive semiconductor assembly to test manufacturing and diversified into storage, LEDs, solar, contract manufacturing, medical devices, industrial electronics, avionics, front-end fab as well as design and developments, especially in both integrated circuits (ICs) and embedded system designs. As the E&E industry grow and diversify, it has also developed clusters of SMEs and large local companies in precision machining, equipment development and assembly, and automation. Many of such companies are doing business globally and many are also listed on Bursa Malaysia. Thanks to the Industrial Trade and Industry Ministry and Malaysian Investment Development Authority for their positive roles and efforts.That Malaysia gained recognition as one of the choicest industry cluster locations in the world has been a clear reflection of the comparative advantage Malaysia held over the neighbouring countries, in terms of its part in global E&E.After 40 years in the country, policymakers must now rethink how best to enable these companies with strong policy advocacy and to encourage them to continue to invest in the country, especially in the face of stiff competition as well as the current data-centric phase for ICs. Topping the urgent priority list is Malaysia’s lack of follow-up strategy to boost the competitiveness of the E&E and policies have not kept up with the rapid changes.Most of the time the government looks at an industry from value-added contributions, which is output minus input. The higher the number, the higher the added value. However, in the E&E industry, the supply chain is global and not just local, which is why it is said, “the world is flat” as the components and input materials are not necessarily from the country producing the product. There are also numerous dimensions in assessing the value of an industry and of all these, talent development is notably the most significant.For example, in the semiconductor industry, the technology evolves from micro to nano technology. For each improvement in technology, new advanced machines are needed and the workforce needs to be re-trained to handle such complex equipment and manufacturing processes. The same can be said of other E&E sub-sectors when new technology is introduced.Malaysia can proudly attest that as new manufacturing processes are continually developed, we have engineers capable of handling this development, not to mention the homegrown leaders to run the relevant operations.Malaysians have shown that they are now capable of managing regional or global operations from Malaysia as well as global supply chains including price negotiations with vendors around the world. Other high paying jobs include managing global logistics hubs, regional and global shared services in finance, IT and human capital. How much value does one put into new technology, talent development, global leadership skills, complexities of operations and design and developments especially since Malaysians have shown that they have the capabilities to learn and manage such challenges.We have done extremely well in the past. Penang, for instance, is testimony of global recognition as one of the top 10 dynamic industrial cluster locations in the world, thanks to its strong and efficient supply chain with world-class capabilities and proven track record.Not only was there a network of over 3,000 well diversified and competent local suppliers, but soon came along to local electronic manufacturing service companies which are into wafer processing, package assembly, RF final testing, design and manufacture of equipment and devices for the semiconductor and electronics packaging industries.Despite having some of the top techno manufacturing companies on the Malaysian shores for the past four decades, we have sadly fallen behind the curve in terms of design and development (D&D) and innovations. These areas could have otherwise pushed us up the value chain.As the backbone of the manufacturing sector, the E&E industry needs to turn to a fresh page so as to draw more foreign attention to this significant cluster.Can Malaysia afford to lose ground in this industry? Is what we have achieved thus far, good enough? What is the new narrative to propel the E&E industry to new heights and to be recognised as a leading E&E centre of the world?Datuk Seri Wong Siew Hai is the E&E Productivity Nexus Champion for the Malaysia Productivity Corp. The views expressed here are solely the opinion of the writer.center_img {{category}} {{time}} {{title}} Economy 08 Jul 2019 S&P’s rating demonstrates confidence in Malaysia’s economic outlook IT is not business as usual in the electrical and electronics (E&E) industry in Malaysia.The buoyant E&E industry has been the mainstay and strength of the manufacturing sector and economy, with enhanced export competitiveness over the past four decades. It is currently facing challenging times, both on the domestic and external fronts.Some of that robust momentum has been lost. Misperceptions of the expected role of the E&E industry in a developed Malaysian economy have surfaced among policymakers while Malaysia’s global place as the preferred E&E investment destination now stands at odds. last_img read more

to an extra potent H3N2 influenza strain that’s circulating As with any infectious disease the people most vulnerable to problems from the flu include young children There have been an estimated 30 flu-related pediatric deaths this year Here are four expert-backed ways to keep your kids protected from the flu Make sure everyone in your family gets the flu shot You probably should have gotten your flu shot before the end of Octoberbut it’s not too late to do so now The flu season will likely continue for a few more months and even if your child already got the flu it’s still a good idea to get him vaccinated if you haven’t already says Dr Flor Munoz associate professor of pediatrics infectious diseases molecular virology and microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine “You could be protected against other strains” she says “This is especially important for people at a high risk of getting sick again” It’s also important for everyone in your family who can get the flu shot to do so Kids and infants who are six months or older should get a yearly flu vaccine Because kids under that age can’t get the vaccine it’s important that the people around them do in order to lower the likelihood that the flu will spread among people in a household Pay attention to symptoms and get treated fast If your child is having respiratory issues like sneezing stuffy nose and sore throat it’s a good idea to take them to the doctor quickly “Seeking medical attention early is important because antivirals are more effective if taken earlyideally in the first day or two after symptoms occur” says Munoz MORE: Here’s Why the Flu Is Especially Bad This Year Take medication if it’s recommended If your doctor says a child should take an antiviral it’s important they follow that treatment says Munoz Also if you are getting your child vaccinated against the flu now and the child is in direct contact with people who have the flu at school or home it may be a good idea to have him take an antiviral for one week following the vaccination (the estimated time it takes for the flu vaccine protection to kick in) Consult with your doctor Teach coughing etiquette It may be obvious but one of the easiest ways to prevent kids from getting the flu is to make sure they follow proper sickness etiquette That means covering the nose and mouth with a tissue when sneezing and coughing and washing hands often with soap and water It’s also a good idea to frequently wash off counter tops and other touched surfaces this time of year “I think it’s important to make sure [parents and kids] are aware of other children who are sick around them” says Munoz “Especially if they have a medical problem they should avoid [contact] with them” Contact us at editors@timecomGandhinagar: Distancing herself

BJP-led government assumed power – while diesel prices hit a record high of Rs 7020 a litre Rising fuel prices renew calls for a cut in excise duty to ease the burden on consumers but the government won’t budge The finance ministry does not want to cut the excise duty on fuel because a reduction in duty will negatively impact the fiscal deficit glide path A duty cut will result in a Rs 13000 crore loss to the exchequer Instead New Delhi wants states to cut the sales tax or VAT on fuel PTI reported on Monday For now consumers have to brace for an expensive ride ahead State-owned oil firms on Tuesday raised petrol rates by 13 paise per litre and diesel rates by 19 paise per litre in Mumbai according to a price notification State-run oil firms revise prices daily a practice that began last June Domestic prices now track global crude oil price fluctuations The Indian basket of crude stood at $6380 per barrel in March 2018 as against $4656 per barrel in June 2017 Over the past six days petrol prices have been hiked by 61 paise per litre while diesel rates have been hiked by 79 paise a litre all in Mumbai according to Indian oil data Mumbai-traded Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) is the country’s largest fuel retailer India has the highest retail prices of petrol and diesel among South Asian nations as taxes account for half of the pump rates While introducing the daily price revision the government had said that the move mirrors international practices So how do our petrol and diesel prices compare with those in our neighbouring countries Well we’re paying through the nose for fuel For instance petrol retails at Rs 8248 per litre in Mumbai However data for 1 April 2018 shows that in Bangladesh you would have paid Rs 6808 per litre of petrol on that date; Rs 6478 per litre in Nepal; Rs 4894 per litre in Sri Lanka and Rs 4704 per litre in Pakistan In the case of diesel the fuel retails at Rs 7020 per litre in Mumbai But Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell

Minister Arun Jaitley in his Budget presented on 1 February ignored those calls Why are we paying more The central and state governments levy taxes on fuel to beef-up their coffers The central government had cut the excise duty by Rs 2 per litre in October 2017 Subsequent to that excise duty reduction the Centre asked states to lower the sales tax or VAT on fuels but just four of them – Maharashtra Gujarat Madhya Pradesh and Himachal Pradesh – reduced rates while others including BJP-ruled states ignored the call PTI reported But the abovementioned excise duty cut pales in comparison to decisions that raised the duty nine times In the 15 months to January 2016 the government raised the excise duty on petrol and diesel on nine occasions to take away gains arising from plummeting global oil prices In all the duty on petrol was hiked by Rs 1177 per litre and that on diesel by 1347 a litre — the moves helped government rake in Rs 242000 crore in fiscal 2016-17 from Rs 99000 crore in fiscal 2014-15 As mentioned earlier our fuel prices are now benchmarked to global crude oil prices Petrol and diesel rates are hiked as and when international oil prices rise The Indian basket of crude stood at $6380 per barrel in March 2018 a 37 percent rise over the $4656 per barrel price recorded in June 2017 But in the 20 months to January 2016 the price of the Indian basket of crude plunged to $281 per barrel a 74 percent drop from June 2014’s $109 a barrel high point ie a few months after the Narendra Modi-led regime assumed power However during the same period the fall in
