Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#Internet of Things#mobile Related Posts jim nash To the list of objects that might occupy the coming Internet of Things, add the internal injury you suffered learning to kickbox.A government-funded research project has come up with dissolvable electronics capable of such tasks as monitoring a bruised kidney, sharing information and fending off infection.Researchers at Tufts University and the University of Illinois said they have made small, complete computing devices – including energy sources – that melt at prescribed rates in water. They look and bend a little like novelty transparent business cards with the familiar right-angle circuit etchings of semiconductors.It’s called transient electronics, and potential uses go beyond medicine to include environmental protection and national defense. In fact, the project was funded in part by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and the U.S. Air Force, as well as by the National Science Foundation.The clear material is specially prepared silk and the circuits, which are only tens of nanometers thick, are made of silicon and magnesium.The silk gives the circuits a foundation, but also delays dissolution, depending on how thick the material is. (The thicker the clear silk layer, the longer it takes to dissolve.) The circuits themselves dissolve as well, leaving nothing behind once the process is finished, according to Fiorenzo Omenetto, professor of biomedical engineering at Tufts School of Engineering and a senior and corresponding author of the team’s paper.The devices can be crafted to last up to years. Downstream applications might include compostable consumer electronics and geophysical monitors.Photo courtesy of the Beckman Institute, University of Illinois and Tufts University What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces

Associated PressMelody Stout and Hannah Payan comfort each other during a vigil for victims of the El Paso shooting.Gov. Greg Abbott says Texas needs to do a better job of addressing its mental health care challenges after a deadly mass shooting at an El Paso Walmart.Speaking at a press conference after the shooting, Abbott said the state has enacted new legislation in the wake of last year’s shooting at Santa Fe High School outside of Houston. The governor held a series of roundtables at the Capitol in 2018 aimed at strengthening student safety.“During that time we did not, as far as I know, evaluate for and plan for an incident like this,” Abbott said. “That said, I can tell you that perhaps the most profound and agreed upon issue that came out of all of those hearings was the need for the state and for society to do a better job of dealing with challenging mental health based issues.”The governor said mental health “is a large contributor to any type of violence or shooting violence.”But researchers and advocates are pushing back against the idea that mass shootings are tied to mental illness. Rosie Phillips Davis, president of the American Psychological Association, said in a statement that blaming gun violence on mental illness is unfounded and can reinforce stigma about these conditions.“Research has shown that only a very small percentage of violent acts are committed by people who are diagnosed with, or in treatment for, mental illness,” she said. “The rates of mental illness are roughly the same around the world, yet other countries are not experiencing these traumatic events as often as we face them. One critical factor is access to, and the lethality of, the weapons that are being used in these crimes. Adding racism, intolerance and bigotry to the mix is a recipe for disaster.”Studies have shown most people living with serious mental illness are never violent.Jeff Temple, a professor with the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, says drawing such associations in the wake of mass shootings could make people hesitant to seek treatment for mental health conditions. Temple co-authored a study which found mental illness is not to blame for gun violence.“When something like El Paso happens, the first thing people jump to is, ‘Man, that guy must have been insane,’” Temple said. “‘He must have had a mental illness.’ Well, maybe not. Maybe it is something else going on. Maybe there’s some hostility. Maybe there’s some anger.”Temple’s study examined mental illness symptoms and personality traits and found people with a hostile demeanor were about three and a half times more likely to have threatened someone with a gun.“What we found was that overall, mental health symptoms were unrelated to both carrying a gun and threatening someone with a gun,” he said.In the end, Temple said the risk of violence comes down to access to firearms. The study found people with access were 18 times more likely to have threatened someone with a gun.“By and large, it seems to be, that person has access to guns,” Temple said, “and that is the common factor in all shootings.” Share
Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today remembered Swami Vivekananda on his 116th death anniversary and urged the people to live up to the ideals the spiritual leader espoused. “On this day, the great philosopher, Swami Vivekananda attained Mahasamadhi. Remembering him on this solemn occasion. Let us strive to live up to the ideals he espoused, Banerjee wrote on her Twitter handle. Swami Vivekananda, who passed away on July 4 in 1902, played an important role in the spiritual enlightenment of the masses. He spread the Vedanta philosophy in the West and established the Ramakrishna Math and Ramkrishna Mission to serve the poor. “He taught the world the true meaning of Hinduism: universal brotherhood,” Banerjee said.
