The iPhone 5C is a 4-inch display, an A6 computer processor, an 8 megapixel camera and an improved front facing camera for FaceTime video chats.The casing of the iPhone 5C is plastic but comes in a variety of colors (light blue, grey, light red, yellow and green). Apple has created cases to highlight the colors of the iPhone 5C, as well.Apple touts that it has the “most LTE bands of any smartphone in the world,” which means that the company is aiming to make the iPhone 5C as ubiquitous across the globe as possible. It will retail for $99 for a 16GB version and $199 for a 32GB version, on a two-year contract.A lot of people wondered what would become of the iPhone 5 when Apple announced the expected iPhone 5C. Would it become the mid-tier phone in Apple’s lineup? The answer is no. Apple is killing off the iPhone 5 in favor of the iPhone 5C. The new iPhone 5C will be sold at the price that many thought the iPhone 5 would if it were to stay in Apple’s existing smartphone lineup. This is a fairly significant move for Apple to kill off what has been the most popular smartphone it has ever created a year after it was announced. Without a contract from the cellular carriers, the 5C starts at $549.What do you think of the iPhone 5C?

first_imgHow Connected Communities Can Bolster Your Busi… A new project by the University of Calgary will see a team of researchers compare smart city projects from various continents to try and define their characteristics and benefits.An article in university newspaper The Gauntlet profiled the new smart city project taking place in the western Canadian province of Alberta.The initiative is a component of the university’s Eyes High research strategy that will see academics compare smart city projects in Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas.With almost every municipality claiming some form of smart urban strategy, the concept of a smart city is something that is interpreted and applied in myriad ways around the world. And so the project was launched to provide some welcome clarity and concrete definitions in the amorphous smart city space.“Some [approaches] are very top-down and are about controlling populations in the interest of others. Others may be bottom-up, where citizens have a lot of input and the initiatives are about enhancing participation,” said University of Calgary professor Byron Miller.He cited the example of the top-down approach taken by Rio de Janeiro during the recent Olympics. There the government set up surveillance camera monitoring centers that enabled the collaboration of multiple civic departments.

first_imgFor Self-Driving Systems, Infrastructure and In… Related Posts Sam Schmidt, who made headlines by breaking speed records in a semi-autonomous modified Corvette Z06 during the Indianapolis 500 earlier this year, is about to receive the first autonomous vehicle restricted driver’s license to be issued in the United States.Schmidt, prior to an accident in 2000 that rendered him quadriplegic, was one of the top Indy Racing League drivers during the late ’90s. His accident while preparing for the 2000 Indy season may have ended his racing career, but it hasn’t kept him from tearing up the track and breaking speed records.Partnering with Arrow Electronics, Sam Schmidt drove a semi-autonomous car an incredible 152 mph without using his arms or legs. This vehicle was fitted with sensors and cameras that enabled him to control the vehicle with his head, breathing, and voice commands while its intelligent on-board computer handled the rest.While that speed might not be a record-breaking pace on the icon Indy track under normal conditions, it provided a big proof of concept for semi-autonomous vehicles that can be driven without the use of the driver’s arms or legs.Nevada license allows open road useNow, Sam Schmidt will be able to put this technology to use on our slower, and more crowded roadways. The state of Nevada, a state that prides itself on paving the way for autonomous vehicle testing, is issuing his license so he can drive his semi-autonomous vehicle on the open road.This technology offers an opportunity for disabled drivers that have lost their ability to drive due to physical limitations hope. If it catches on and spreads into the consumer market, quadriplegic individuals that are currently dependent on others to drive them to appointments and to run errands will have the freedom to drive themselves wherever they want to go.The technology developed by Arrow Electronics is still new, and even since Schmidt’s record-breaking run earlier this year, continues to be improved on. There is no word yet on if or when this technology will make its way to the public.

first_imgHow Connected Communities Can Bolster Your Busi… The City of Boston is calling all Internet of Things (IoT) developers to submit ideas on how to improve the quality of life for citizens.A request for information (RFI) published earlier this month calls on IoT developers to skip the “glossy presentation” and actual identify areas where improvements can be made.See Also: India hopeful Trump will continue US support of smart citiesBoston has provided a list of goals for the RFI, which include an increase in digital access, improvements to transport, revamped public spaces and “third places”, upgrades to city services, engagement programs, a e-learning platform, and changes that make the city appealing to new businesses.That’s a lot of ground to cover and gives IoT developers a wide array of problems to fix. The city wants developers to avoid large expenditures, especially if they do not reduce costs in the long term or add revenue to the city’s budget.Boston open to public-private partnershipsBoston is open to public-private partnerships, which could mean bicycle, bus, and taxi services that are backed or powered by private corporations. This is already occurring in some U.S. cities; Boston has not said what areas are off limits to privatization.“What we’ve done [in the last few years] have been more localized experiments,” said Nigel Jacob, co-founder of the Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics.. “I think we’re at the point now where we’re creating more of a strategic approach. The hope here is to surface a lot of the ecosystem players that are certainly around Boston, but more generally also, so we can take a more long-term view in terms of where we want to be investing.”The city recently published a first draft of Boston 2030, a high-level plan for city development in the next 15 years. It includes changes that make the city greener, more pedestrian, and hopefully more enticing for businesses. The RFI adds new factors specifically for IoT developers to consider, as the city makes these structural changes.

first_imgRyan Matthew Pierson Internet of Things Makes it Easier to Steal You… Like something out of the Walking Dead, a plague is ripping through the Internet and turning IoT devices into zombies. The horde amassed by the Hajime malware has grown to over 300,000 Internet of Things devices.While your smart fridge won’t come to life and try to eat your brains, the term “zombie” in this case refers to a device that has been compromised into becoming part of a botnet.The coming of the IoT botnetsBotnets are swarms of connected devices that each function exactly as they’re supposed to, but are also set to execute commands given by the botnet’s controller. Because of the nature of IoT devices, it is exceedingly difficult if not impossible for the average user to determine if a device is compromised.Typically, these commands come in the form of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks carried out on a specific target. In these types of attacks, the devices flood the target server with requests over the Internet. This overwhelms the server and can result in temporary disruptions of service.See also: BrickerBot malware will brick unsecure IoT devicesYou typically hear about DDoS attacks after a major website that is almost always up and available goes down momentarily. One of the largest attacks in recent memory happened in October of 2016 which resulted in dozens of the Internets most popular websites and services being temporarily unavailable.That particular attack was carried out using IoT devices compromised by the Mirai malware. The Internet of Things is a particularly appealing target for malicious software makers due to loosened security measures and infrequent software updates that make these devices less secure than traditional desktop and mobile PCs.Botnets are also used for data gathering through keylogging and traffic sniffing. This includes being used by spammers to send mass amounts of email (spam) to targets. Botnet devices have even been linked to identity theft as they spam out phishing emails that trick unsuspecting users into giving up private information under the guise that the request is coming from a reputable source.What is Hajime malware?Hajime means “beginning” in Japanese. It is an IoT worm that builds a P2P botnet from IoT devices. It does this by exploiting several common security gaps that exist in IoT devices like smart thermostats and dishwashers.Hajime uses force to make its way on devices by exploiting weak password security. A lot of IoT devices are left with their default passwords as users prefer convenience over security. One way to counter this type of attack is to change the device passwords into something complex and difficult to guess. Avoid dictionary words, add numbers and special characters, and don’t use the same password in multiple places.It also exploits the Arris cable modem Password of the Day. This is a known exploit that has been around since 2009 and gives malware like Hajime a backdoor.What we don’t know about Hajime right now is its purpose. There are no reports of any attacks carried out by the Hajime malware. However, this doesn’t mean things aren’t happening.Reports indicate that most of the devices attacked by the Hajime are in the countries of Brazil, Iran, Vietnam, Taiwan, Turkey, India, Korea and China. Hajime also, interestingly enough, contains a propagation module, rather than an attack code.On a more positive front, Hajime is reported to only be going after devices with weak security. By taking some basic security steps like changing the default password and bolstering your network security, you may well be able to avoid having your smart toaster become part of this new swarm of electronic zombies.

first_imgAs a business owner, you must understand that creating awareness for your brand, product or services online and converting this awareness into actual product sales or service registrations are two different things.The latter entails that you have a compelling business structure that would convince potential customers into giving your product a trial and ensure that they become loyal customers.It is increasingly challenging to transform potential customers to loyal ones since the rate at which businesses are subscribing to digitization is explosive. There is just too many offers and contents online that could rob you of your clients in the blink of an eye.As such, business owners are beginning to turn to innovative technologies, particularly AI and IoT, that would give them an edge in this increasingly competitive terrain. Bearing this in mind, it comes as no surprise that a survey revealed that the availability of AI encourages 50% of consumers to spend more.In this article, we will take a look at 10 ways businesses are already maximizing the innovative power of AI and IoT for business conversions in 2019.1. Customer Data AnalyticsBefore the introduction of AI and IoT, businesses often find it difficult to utilize the data they collect from consumers. More baffling is the fact that companies had this ever-growing pool of data that could give them insight on innovative ways to increase their profits and it was wasting away.In the aftermath of the commercialization of these technologies, we have seen how valuable data has become to businesses because they now have the tools to analyze it and therefore help them develop strategic models that would impact their conversion rate.2. Personalized MarketingWith the help of intuitive analytics that AI and IoT bring to the table, businesses can now create advertising contents for individual customers.You can use different data like the customer’s location, search history, and lifestyle to identify the best range of products or service plans to market to them. As such, this sort of personalized approach exponentially increases potential customers’ chances of visiting your website and actively engaging with your services or making purchases.3. Customized EmailsGone are the days when business owners dispatch the same email content to their clients. Today, establishing customer loyalty entails an advanced level of commitment that highlights how much you value your customer base.Apparently, business owners are aware that gestures as simple as personalizing emails will go a long way to establish their customers’ trust in their commitment to serve them. In light of this, it is now common for businesses to employ AI and IoT to both analyze and identify factors like the best email frequency, the most appropriate time of the day to send emails to each client and the right title to use.4. ChatbotsRelying on human labor to offer 24/7 customer service to potential clients and the established ones is often inefficient and costly. As a result, businesses have opted for AI-powered chatbots that give swift and relevant responses to queries on their websites and other social media networks.These chatbots come with machine learning and IoT-enabled data pooling systems that give them the ability to tackle open questions. This new trend has led expert to forecast that the Chatbot market would worth a whopping $1.25 billion by 2025.5. Account SecurityIn light of the various data breaches that have disabled consumers’ trust over the years, businesses, especially the ones offering service accounts, are using AI and IoT to protect accounts from hackers. As such, we have seen more businesses adopt 2FA for a more formidable identity verification system.6. Predictive AnalysisPredictive analysis is the use of data and AI applications in forecasting the probability of a prospective client is becoming an active customer as well as to identify individuals that could spend more if effectively motivated.This information helps businesses identify marketing targets and also quote prices that would improve their conversion rate.7. PSD2 Compliant Payment SystemsNew regulations in Europe, The Second Payment Directives (PSD2), demands that retailers must have payment systems that enable Strong Customer Authentication (SCA).As a result, payment security experts have introduced new AI/IoT systems that autonomously assess the risk level of transactions and instantaneously proffer a suitable mode of authentication. For retailers, this will make their payment system less susceptible to hacks while reducing unprocessed checkouts.8. User ExperienceUser experience is one of the significant factors to consider as a business owner before you create a website as it determines users’ ability or inability to seamlessly navigate your site. And with the advent of AI and IoT, user experience has suddenly become more sophisticated.Presently, businesses are using these technologies to automatically curate the services, prices, and contents that tends to attract each user based on the data collected about them.9. Content CreationFor businesses that offer users subscription plans to access the latest news content and other forms of contents, AI, as well as IoT, has become an essential tool in this highly competitive industry. Already, news websites have started using IoT to access real-time information while employing AI to utilize existing templates for writing new contents.10. Voice Search CompatibilitySearch Engine Optimization (SEO) and voice search, which is becoming important, are factors that determine the number of organic traffic websites generates.While both factors are strongly tied to AI, content optimization is also increasingly leaning towards AI-enabled solutions in order to construct marketing contents that conform with the latest search trends that tend to rely on conversational keywords rather than long-tail keywords.ConclusionThe above are some of the ways highly informed businesses have been taking advantage of the wave of AI and IoT. Review the above AI-enable solutions, find where your business is lacking and strive to equip your business with the right tools. Make sure you have data recovery and study all AI and IoT solution as soon as possible. The wave of AI and IoT only gets better from here.

first_imgBetween 2005 and 2010, approximately one service member died every 36 hours, not by Afghanistan or Iraq insurgents, not from a result of a training exercise or automobile accident–but from suicide.In 2009 alone, 160 active duty military personnel took their lives, making suicide the third leading cause of death among the Army population (Army HP/RR/SP Report, 2010).With the increase in suicides the Army has designated the month of September as Suicide Prevention Month and joins the nation in observing National Suicide Prevention Week, Sept. 10-14, and World Suicide Prevention Day, Sept. 10.As more troops return home from deployment, the risk of suicide may grow. It is important that families of these service members become aware of the issue and learn to identify potential risk factors and warning signs associated with suicide.Understanding Suicide PreventionSeveral factors may influence a service member to attempt or commit suicide. As a military caregiver be aware of risk factors associated with suicide.Work-related problemsHistory of depression or other psychological issuesFamily history of suicide or suicide attemptsSerious medical problems or physical illnessRecent disciplinary or legal actionsSignificant loss (death of loved one or fellow service member within unit)Drug or alcohol abuseViolence in the home or social environmentUnsuccessful relationships or relationship strainExcessive debt and other financial problemsWarning Signs of Potential SuicideIf you notice significant changes in your warrior’s demeanor since he or she has returned home from war, they may be exhibiting signs of potential suicide. The following warning signs may indicate that your service member is suicidal:Changes in eating, sleeping habits, or personal hygieneTalking or hinting about hurting himself or herselfExpressing a strong desire to kill someone elseIndicating he or she will be better off deadObsession with death (for example, in music, poetry, artwork, letters)Changes in mood and behavior  (for example, depression, irritability, rage, anger)Increased alcohol and/or drug use or abuseIsolation and withdrawal from social situationGiving away possessionsUpdating will or otherwise finalizing personal affairsProblem with spouse or partnerSudden or impulsive purchase of a firearm or other weaponsAdditional ResourcesIf your service member is experiencing thoughts or symptoms of suicide–do not hesitate, call the Veterans Crisis Line at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) for immediate assistance. The Veterans Crisis Line and website is available for both veterans and active duty service members.For more information on suicide within the military, visit the Army Suicide Prevention Program. The program offers a variety of information and resources relating to suicide in order to improve readiness for service members and their families.As a caregiver, be aware of the Applied Suicide Intervention Training (ASIST). ASIST is a workshop for caregivers who want to feel confident and competent in helping to prevent the immediate risk of suicide.

first_imgThe better your credit score “GPA,” the better your chances of obtaining a loan or credit card and obtaining lower-cost credit that can save hundreds, or in the case of home mortgages, thousands of dollars of interest over the length of a loan. Credit scores are also used in setting rates for insurance policies. In addition, potential landlords can use them as a character reference. Credit scores are typically a number calculated by statistical analyses to measure the risk that a borrower will become delinquent or default. It is a weighted average of factors that have been shown to be related to the creditworthiness of individuals. The higher a person’s credit score number, the better. A good analogy for credit scores is a grade point average used to measure college students’ academic success. Another way to get a free credit score is for persons applying for a car loan, mortgage, or home refinancing to simply ask their prospective lender for this information. Especially for mortgages, lenders have probably already charged loan applicants a fee to check their credit score.So, if you thought your report card and GPA days were over, think again. Your credit report and credit score are a “snapshot” of your credit history at a particular point in time and you are constantly being “graded.” Paying bills on time and not becoming overextended are the two best ways to raise your credit score.For more information about credit scores, take the Credit Score Quiz. The most important factor in a person’s FICO credit score is bill payment history, which is weighted at 35% of the total score. Other key factors are the amount owed (30%), the length of a person’s credit history (15%) , the number of recent credit inquiries (10%), and the mix of types of credit (e.g., credit cards, auto loan, mortgage, etc.) used (10%). The most commonly used credit score is the FICO score, which ranges from 300 (low) to 850 (high). The average FICO credit score in the U.S. in early 2015 was 695 according to Fair Isaac Corporation, the FICO score creator. There is no federal law on the books (yet) that mandates free credit scores upon request like there is for credit reports. However, many credit card companies now provide free credit scores on monthly statements or online as a way to attract and retain customers. Examples of companies that provide free credit scores include Barclaycard US, Capital One, Citibank, Commerce Bank, Discover, First Bankcard, and USAA. By Barbara O’Neill, Ph.D., CFP®, Rutgers Cooperative Extension, oneill@aesop.rutgers.eduPhoto by Jason RogersRemember those report cards that told you (and your parents!) how you were doing in school? Maybe you thought those days were over, but they’re not. Every day, millions of people are “graded” with credit reports and credit scores.This month, the eXtension Military Families Learning Network Personal Finance Team held a webinar called Credit Scores: What’s New? Below is a list of basic information about credit scores that military families and the financial educators and counselors who serve them need to know:A credit report is a summary of someone’s history of paying debts and other bills. It is prepared by credit reporting agencies (a.k.a., credit bureaus) and used to make business decisions by those who have a legitimate need for the information. The three major credit bureaus are Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. A good analogy for credit reports is report cards at elementary schools that provide a detailed summary of students’ performance.last_img read more

first_imgVintage 765The Vintage 765 lenses are rehoused ARRIFLEX lenses from the late 1980s. These lenses offer a wonderfully classic look with great contrast and superb image quality. There are 11 lenses in this set, ranging from a 30mm to a 300mm.Quality and FunctionalityQuality is obviously top priority with the Alexa 65. ARRI has partnered with IMAX to produce films using the Alexa 65 camera system. Some notable IMAX films shot on the Alexa 65 include Sully and Captain America: Civil War.Now, one may think that because of the inherent nature of this camera that it’s an unwieldy beast. While it does weigh in at 23 pounds, you can throw it on your shoulder to operate on a busy street. It’s not meant to sit in a studio all day. Prime 65 and Prime 65 SThe Prime 65 series of lenses is ARRI’s crisp set of lenses that offers a clean and modern look. These high-performance image optics are reminiscent of the ARRI Master Prime series. The main difference between the S-line and non-S-line is that the S features slightly faster T-stops.

While this camera may be a little overclocked for low-budget filmmaking, the cinematography it yields is inspirational to us all.SensorTo put it lightly, this sensor is huge. It offers an image area larger than a 5 perf 65mm film frame. In digital terms, that’s a lot of information being captured. In a recent resolution test of film and digital cameras, the Alexa 65 shined.Also, many top cinematographers who swear by film are turning to the Alexa 65. The cinematographer of Okja, Darius Khondji, describes the Alexa 65 as the only digital camera that he’ll touch: “If I do shoot digital, I would shoot Alexa 65 and not touch any other camera.”Image via Netflix.LensesFinding lenses that fit this huge 65mm sensor can be a challenge. However, ARRI offers 4 lens options for cinematographers using the Alexa 65. One interesting thing to note is that the Alexa 65 uses a proprietary lens mount: XPL. That means your typical PL mount lenses that can handle a 65mm sensor won’t work. Prime DNAARRI describes the Prime DNA series of lenses as full of character with unusual image attributes. This set of lenses is constantly evolving, and each lens has its own character. For example: there are two versions of the 35mm and 45mm lens to choose from, depending on your taste. The Alexa 65 and Prime DNA lenses are currently in use by DP James Laxton (Moonlight) to record Barry Jenkins‘s new film.last_img read more

first_imgFind some extra motivation on your next project with these 7 techniques for maximizing your non-linear editing skills in Premiere Pro.Every editor has that moment when they first discover that truly awesome — often time-saving — breakthrough. It’s like a breath of fresh air, suddenly reinvigorating your work.And while those self discoveries are always the best, they can be very few and far between. That is unless you read articles like these, which share some of the best tips, tricks, and hacks for your Adobe Premiere Pro video editing workflow.1. Cherry Pick Your TimelineWhen starting a new project, especially one with tons of footage (travel videos or documentary projects), your first step is to review all your footage. One quick tip, outlined in the video above, is to begin the process of cherry-picking your timeline as you review your footage — a technique that helps you pull out and (in a way) catalog your shots so you can begin doing your actual editing assembly after.You can read more about the process here.2. Creative Timeline NestingAnother simple-yet-game-changing tip for starting off in Premiere Pro is to master the art of creative timeline nesting, as demonstrated by VideoRevealed. Nesting is a handy and powerful trick, allowing you to place your sequences into other sequences. This is handy for a number of reasons, as it not only helps with your program’s processing and rendering, but it also keeps your timeline clean and segmented, allotting for multiple uses in different areas.3. Time Remapping and Speed RampingWant to make some truly cool, clever videos for your clients, friends, and personal reels? Well, one sure-fire technique is to utilize the slick look of speed-ramped shots. Using a technique in Premiere Pro called Time Remapping, Robbie Janney walks you through the steps to create that stylized look.Record at a High Frame RateUse the Speed/Duration EffectChange the Frame InformationKeyframe and Speed RampingYou can read a more detailed step-by-step here.4. Quick Motion TrackingFor all those video editors intimidated by After Effects, here’s a cool tip that allows you to do some substantive motion tracking directly in Premiere Pro. In this tutorial by Daniel Marchione, we get a primer in working with keyframing and manually creating motion for your text or graphics, without any scary After Effects work.5. Color Grading Using Lumetri Color PanelsFor those editors who remember a time prior to Premiere Pro’s Lumetri Color Panels, you understand just how much of a game changer those color controls truly are. In this breakdown, we get some actionable advice, as well as some serious color theory to help you understand and master color alteration using Lumetri curves.For a more in-depth breakdown, here’s the full article.6. Smooth Slow MotionAs an antithesis to the slick, cool, and clever speed-ramping techniques above, we must now dive into the smooth and serene power of slow motion. Using many of the same effects and techniques, YouTuber Kyler Holland discusses how to work with high-frame-rate footage to create a consistent and smooth look for your slowed-down clips — and how to include them in your sequences and videos.7. Animate in the Essential Graphics PanelThe final tip is a more advanced technique — animation. Using the Essential Graphics Panel, we learn how to create some basic graphic animations, which can look surprisingly complex and professional.
