Panel to Address Implantable Technology at WearableTech LA

first_img Business News 6 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Today at the WearableTech LA conference, a panel of experts will discuss implantable technology—items that can be placed in a body for a variety of medical reasons, including to monitor, heal, adjust or improve health in ways that non-embedded devices cannot.The panel, called “Wearables: Everything Ingestible, Implantable,” will run from 3:00 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. in the Pasadena Convention Center where the conference is taking place. It will be moderated by Dan Rosenbaum, editor-in-chief of Center Ring Media’s Wearable Tech Insider and a veteran technology journalist. Panelists are:• Eric Olson, Director of Design, Karten Design;• Dr. Victor Pikov, Bioelectronics R&D Consultant at GSK (Glaxo Smith Kline) and Senior Scientist for Huntington Medical Research Institute); and• Joshua Windmiller, CEO, Electrozyme.“Implantable technology sounds kind of freaky,” said Rosenbaum, “but the first implanted cardiac pacemakers date from 1958 and have been changing lives for the better ever since. As technology gets smaller and more powerful, and as medical science understands the human body better, implantables are a technical frontier that’s just starting to come into view. Most people aren’t aware of all the intensely cool early work being done in this space, such as what these panelists’ companies are working on. Imagine a device that automatically monitors and regulates insulin production in diabetics, or something that detects hypoxia in pilots and warns them to adjust oxygen levels. We’re way past fitness trackers here. It should be a very interesting discussion.”A technology journalist for more than 30 years and an award-winning writer, Dan Rosenbaum covers wearable technology on his blog, Wearable Tech Insider, which addresses new products, corporate news and technology developments in the world of in wearable technology.

Warburtons debuts crumpet slippers in aid of FareShare

first_imgSource: Warburtons Source: WarburtonsWarburtons has pushed the boundaries with its latest NPD – crumpet slippers.The limited-edition footwear marks the bakery brand’s first foray into clothing as it aims to raise money for UK charity FareShare this Christmas.The slippers, said to be inspired by the ‘circular goodness’ of Warbuton’s iconic crumpet, cost £19.99 and are being sold online in XS-Large (UK size 3-12).For every pair purchased, the equivalent of 64 meals will be donated to those most in need during this festive period, Warburtons said. The campaign will also enable the charity to distribute over 85,000 free meals. Jonathan Warburton, chairman of the bakery brand described 2020 as an “incredibly challenging” year for many people from a financial and health-perspective. “That’s why we have worked hard to ensure we can feed the nation, both by getting product onto shelves but also by supporting food banks, community groups and breakfast clubs across the country,” he said. “It was reflecting on this achievement that we realised we needed to find a festive way to finish the year, not only putting a smile on the faces of loved ones on Christmas Day, but also giving back to the loyal crumpet lovers who ensure we can donate as much as we have. As we enter some of the toughest months for those in need, FareShare’s incredible work fighting hunger was an obvious partner and we are proud to be able to donate all sale proceeds from the slippers to such a worthy cause.”Linsay Boswell, CEO at FareShare, added: “We are delighted that Warburtons have chosen to donate sales of their festive crumpet slippers to FareShare to help us feed families across the UK this winter. Getting good, nutritious food to vulnerable people has never been more vitally important than it is now, and this donation will make a big difference to the communities we support.”FareShare is the UK’s largest food redistribution charity, with more than 30 warehouses across the UK. It takes food from the food industry that can’t be sold in shops, either because of packaging errors, a short shelf life or overproduction. This is then redistributed through a network of 11,000 frontline organisations, across the UK such as homeless hostels, school breakfast clubs, domestic violence refuges, older people’s lunch clubs, food banks and hospices.FareShare provides enough food to create almost a million meals for vulnerable people every week.last_img read more

The Role Our Global Supply Chain Plays in Dell’s 2030 Vision

first_imgAlmost one year ago, Dell Technologies introduced the 2030 Progress Made Real goals – reflecting our core purpose as a company to drive human progress and create a positive and lasting impact on humankind and the planet.Progress Made Real has four core goals: advancing sustainability, cultivating inclusion, transforming lives with technology, and upholding ethics and privacy. It was a different world a year ago, but changing times do not change our focus. In fact, today’s challenges have only reinforced the enormous difference we can make by simply doing the right thing.The supply chain plays a critical role in Dell Technologies’ vision for progress. We embed sustainability and ethical practices in everything we do. Whether it’s protecting our planet, supporting the well-being of our team members, partners and suppliers, or providing a safe working environment where people can thrive, social and environmental responsibility is a paramount focus for our supply chain. Dell Technologies’ 2019 Supply Chain Sustainability Progress Report highlights this commitment.We are committed to creating a supply chain that values transparency, collaborative leadership, innovation, and empowerment. What are some of the ways we accomplish those goals? By implementing ethical recruitment practices; by utilizing audits and regular training to enhance the health, safety and knowledge of labor rights of our team; and by performing onsite consultations with both factory management and workers at supplier locations to highlight and resolve issues.These efforts are paying off on environmental issues, too. We are reducing our supply chain’s impact on the planet, including by limiting greenhouse gas emissions and partnering with our suppliers to save freshwater. In 2019, over 275,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions were reduced through energy consumption reduction projects at our supplier factories. And our supply chain saved nearly 30 million meters of freshwater and reduced wastewater discharge by 26.2 million meters.The guiding principles of our supply chain have been especially important as we address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. From the onset of COVID-19, we partnered with the Global Facilities and Environmental, Health and Safety teams to develop preventative safety protocols across all Dell Technologies sites. We are also partnering with suppliers to do the same for their facilities. These safety protocols were implemented early to protect our on-site heroes working tirelessly to keep technology flowing for the world in need.The bottom line: Our supply chain plays a vital role in making Dell Technologies’ 2030 Progress Made Real vision a reality.last_img read more

first_imgTyler Stoddard became a first-time IMCA Modified Empire State Series winner on July 15 at Thunder Mountain Speedway. The win was also his first in the division since 2015 and came after “a ton” of second-place showings. (Photo by Mojo Photos)CENTER LISLE, N.Y. (July 15) – Tyler Stoddard has seen a lot of countryside traveling to a lot of different tracks over the seven years he’s followed the Empire State Series for IMCA Modifieds.On Saturday, he got his first view of the tour from victory lane.Stoddard won his first career series feature, and first IMCA Modified event since 2015, at Thunder Mountain Speedway. The 2016 tour runner-up noted that he’d made one small adjustment, suggested by car builder Bob Bills by text earlier in the day.“It seems like I’ve always been the bridesmaid. I’ve got a ton of second-place finishes,” he said. “This win was just unbelievable especially because going into this race we had been having setup issues with the car.”Stoddard started outside pole and fell back to third briefly before getting the second spot, behind Gary Lamphere.Three early cautions came out but Stoddard had the lead before midway in the 20-lapper.Lapped traffic was not a factor as Bumps Scott, Rich Michael Jr., Will Ward and Keith Jack Lamphere chased Stoddard to the $750 checkers.“Once I got out front I just put it on cruise control and concentrated on hitting my marks,” Stoddard said.Feature results – 1. Tyler Stoddard; 2. Bumps Scutt; 3. Rich Michael Jr.; 4. Will Ward; 5. Keith Jack Lamphere; 6. Gary Roberts; 7. Rodney Morgan; 8. Ray McClure; 9. Mike Stoddard; 10. Gary Lamphere; 11. Billy Ward; 12.
