Watch this couple miss their cruise ship by mere seconds

first_img Travelweek Group Tags: Royal Caribbean International Share THE BAHAMAS — Stop that boat! A new video of a couple missing their cruise ship by mere seconds in The Bahamas has gone viral and it’s almost too heartbreaking to watch.The YouTube channel Reel Focus recently posted the six-minute video, which was shot by an onlooker from the top deck of the neighbouring Norwegian Bliss. According to Reel Focus, the Symphony of the Seas, which the down-on-their-luck couple was sailing with, waited approximately 20 minutes before shutting down the gangway.While dock workers are pulling the ropes off the boat, the tardy couple arrives and is seen attempting to wave down the ship as it sails away from the harbor. “Nooooo!” the woman can be heard yelling while onlookers laugh.The couple then walks towards the stern of the ship where they start pleading with a cruise line representative standing onboard. But all hope is lost when the ship’s thrusters are turned on, leaving the couple in the dust.More news:  Apply now for AQSC’s agent cruise ratesTo add insult to injury, the ship’s horn happily blasts three times while the couple stands forlornly on the dock.With the ship long gone, the man can still be seen pacing along the dock, yelling at crew members onboard.

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Jefferson, in a contract season, has put together his best year so far. The strong safety had 96 tackles, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries coming into the game at Seattle. With Jefferson out, the Cardinals shifted DJ. Swearinger to strong safety and allowed rookie Harlan Miller to see some playing time at free safety.Arians said he was pleased with the performance of Miller.“I’m not sure what direction we will go at with safety. Obviously I was very happy with Harlan, probably screw him up if we coach him,” Arians said.Boggs was replaced by rookie offensive lineman Evan Boehm, who at Missouri played as a center. It was his first action this season for the banged up Cardinals offensive line that did not have Humphries as he was on concussion protocol.“He played really well when he didn’t screw up,” Arians said of Boehm. “It’s just blitzes that he turned guys loose up the middle and that happens real fast when you are at guard.”Arians said that Humphries will not play on Sunday in Los Angeles against the Rams, even if he passes the concussion protocol“I’m not going to jeopardize his future,” Arians said.

first_imgHybrid technology provider Motive TV has said it plans to launch its app and antenna tuner technology in the UK to enable tablet users to watch and record Freeview programmes on their devices without the need to connect to the internet.Motive TV said its Tablet TV product allowed users to watch any broadcast TV channel, while its built-in Tablet PVR product enabled them to record shows to watch later.The company said it planned to license its technology to third-party consumer electronics companies who would make its antenna-tuners available in the market.The company’s chairman, former Chrysalis TV chief Mick Pilsworth, is due to provide an update on the company at the Proactive Investors, One2One Investor Forum in London this week.Motive TV said it planned to develop a Freeview-compatible platform that would receive all the Freeview channels available, offer a full seven-day Freeview EPG and enable features such as series recording and social media integration with an internet connection.The company said it would seek approval for Tablet TV from the Digital Television Group and be D-Book-compliant. It will also seek Freeview branding for the product.Motive TV said it expected to be able to demonstrate a Freeview product later this year.Leonard Fertig, CEO of Motive said, “Motive’s experience in developing Tablet TV for the United States makes the extension to the highly successful Freeview platform to tablets in the UK a natural next step.  We look forward to working with Freeview and its partners to complete the development of Tablet TV for the UK so tablet owners can enjoy Freeview whenever and wherever they want.”last_img read more

NBCUniversal networks was the group of channels th

first_imgNBCUniversal networks was the group of channels that most US viewers would choose if they had to select package of five TV network groups for a ‘skinny TV plan’, according to The Diffusion Group.The research firm found that the ‘big-four’ broadcast network groups occupied the top five slots when viewers were asked which they would choose in a live and on-demand TV service that included only five TV network groups.NBCU was selected by 48% of survey respondents, followed by Fox networks (41%), Disney / ABC (41%) and CBS (38%). Also included in the top-five, was Turner networks, tied with CBS at 38%.The rest of the top-10 consisted of A&E (37%), HBO (36%), Discovery (34%), AMC (28%) and Viacom (24%).“Live big-four broadcast viewing is diminishing, as with virtually every major network,” said Michael Greeson, director of research at TDG.“This should not imply, however, that their death as brands or as major forces in consumer video is inevitable. The value of their content is immense; top of mind for many viewers.”ESPN ranked outside of TDG’s top-10 with just 22% of people choosing it for their skinny plan.The research firm said that this shows Disney’s plan to launch the forthcoming ESPN+ over-the-top service as a premium add-on to its linear ESPN channel may be a wise move.“Many expected ESPN+ to be the online equivalent of ESPN, but Disney decided that the risk of cannibalising high-value linear pay TV subscriptions would create substantial channel conflict and hasten the declines in pay TV subscriptions,” said Greeson.“This risk is inherent in the direct-to-consumer model and must be addressed group by group, even channel by channel.”The TDG research was based on a US survey of 2,030 connected consumers and is part of its recent national study, ‘Video Viewing Behaviour in the Age of Quantum Video’.last_img read more

first_imgReaders of any duration will be familiar with Dr. Lacy Hunt—renowned economist, a favorite at our Casey Research Summits, and past contributor to these pages. I’m happy to have him back today with original analysis about what to expect for the US economy in 2014, including his take on inflation, interest rates, debt, and much more. Two things always strike me whenever I read Dr. Hunt’s work. One, his analysis is fiercely independent. I guarantee you won’t agree with everything you’re about to read. His take on interest rates in particular is sure to stir up some controversy. Two, Dr. Hunt’s scholarly approach is refreshing. He draws on his unmatched knowledge of economic history to back up every statement with studies, data, and historical examples. Given the sheer number of facts he always seems to have on his side, it’s usually hard to argue with his conclusions, even if you don’t agree with them. I’ll leave you to explore Dr. Hunt’s analysis for yourself, and to ponder its implications for your own portfolio. Dan Steinhart Managing Editor of The Casey Reportlast_img read more

Trump Signs Executive Order on Cybersecurity

first_imgCybersecurity Free Webinar | July 31: Secrets to Running a Successful Family Business Learn how to successfully navigate family business dynamics and build businesses that excel. This story originally appeared on PCMag –shares President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Thursday that calls for a wide-ranging review of the federal government’s cybersecurity protocols and directs executive branch agencies to upgrade their IT infrastructure.The order does not differ significantly from the cybersecurity policies of former President Barack Obama’s administration, according to Politico, but it does acknowledge that the government’s IT infrastructure leaves much to be desired. It specifically mentions the threats posed by botnets and requires the Departments of State, Treasury, Homeland Security and others to submit a cybersecurity status report within 90 days.”The executive branch has for too long accepted antiquated and difficult–to-defend IT,” Trump’s order reads. “Known vulnerabilities include using operating systems or hardware beyond the vendor’s support lifecycle, declining to implement a vendor’s security patch, or failing to execute security-specific configuration guidance.”Because of this antiquated and vulnerable infrastructure, an estimated 80 percent of the $80 billion federal IT budget goes toward maintaining existing systems, according to Politico. It’s unclear how much modernization would cost, but the order does direct executive branch agencies to seek shared IT services like cloud-based email, which would likely increase security and lower server maintenance costs.Obama’s last federal budget, announced in February 2016, sought $3.1 billion for technology modernization at various federal agencies.In addition to boosting the government’s own IT security, the Trump administration also wants to help private companies combat against cyberthreats. Much like Obama, who appointed a “cybersecurity czar” shortly after taking office, Trump announced in January that former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani would liaise between the government and the private sector on cybersecurity matters.

Covers leadership, media, technology and culture. Entrepreneur Staff Learn how to successfully navigate family business dynamics and build businesses that excel. The electric car company is way behind on its production goals. Earlier this month, it was reported that Tesla had fallen behind on the company’s production goals for the $35,000 Model 3. Though CEO Elon Musk had anticipated the company would manufacture more than 1,500 of the cars by the end of September, that wasn’t the case, with only 260 of them made in the third quarter.Musk is known for having a dogged approach to solving problems, and it seems that has translated to how he has dealt with this most recent wrinkle.In the company’s quarterly earnings call (the company brought in a revenue of nearly $3 million for Q3) this week, Musk shared that he had come down with a cold, but that it hasn’t deterred him from spending all of his time at the Gigafactory in Nevada, taking the call at the factory and even sleeping there if the need arises.Related: The Future According to Elon Musk (Infographic)It would also appear that Musk’s leadership style can best be described as on-the-go. “I always move my desk to wherever — I don’t really have a desk actually — I move myself to wherever the biggest problem is in Tesla. I really believe that one should lead from the front lines, and that’s why I’m here,” Musk noted during the earnings call.He also shared details that in the past four weeks, he has overseen the rewriting of software and spent late night and early mornings on the floor of the factory repairing the processes for battery production. Musk is now anticipating that his goal of producing 5,000 Model 3s every week will likely occur in March.Related: A Humanoid Robot Called Sophia Mocked Elon Musk After Being Asked About the Dangers of AIMusk also acknowledged that his mood had also been affected by the setbacks. “I feel really pretty optimistic right now,” he said. “But if you’d talked to me three weeks ago, I would have been quite pessimistic, and I was sort of quite down in the dumps.”He also took a moment to call out reporting about the company’s recent round of layoffs. After performance reviews, 700 people were fired. Musk believed that the coverage lacked nuance and integrity, saying that those journalists should be “ashamed of themselves.”If you had to deal with a problem, would you take the late nights, sleep-at-the-factory tack that Musk has taken?

Breakthrough study may lead to development of new effective drugs for epilepsy

first_imgReviewed by Kate Anderton, B.Sc. (Editor)Apr 29 2019A drug commonly used to treat multiple sclerosis may, after necessary modifications, one day be used to treat patients with epilepsy, researchers in Prof. Inna Slutsky’s lab at the Sackler Faculty of Medicine and Sagol School of Neuroscience at Tel Aviv University have discovered.This is good news for patients with Dravet syndrome, one of the most dangerous forms of childhood epilepsy, for which there is currently no effective treatment.According to a new study published on April 29 in Neuron, Tel Aviv University researchers uncovered a piece of a puzzle that has eluded scientists for 100 years of studying homeostasis: What is the mechanism that maintains activity set points in neural circuits?While it is well-understood that the brain functions in a narrow range of activity between status epilepticus and coma, how neural circuits maintain stable activity in a constantly changing environment has remained unknown.”The concept of homeostasis has a long history in physiology, starting from the work of Claude Bernard in the middle of 19th century on the stability of the milieu interior. In the middle of 20th century, James Hardy proposed a model in which homeostatic mechanisms maintain physiological variables with an acceptable range around a ‘set point’ value. However, the research of neuronal homeostasis began only 25 years ago, and we still don’t understand how it works,” explains Prof. Slutsky. “What we have found is a homeostatic mechanism that acts as a sort of a thermostat of the neural circuits, which ensures the return to a set point after each event that increases or decreases brain activity.”Our findings may serve as a basis for the development of drugs for a range of neurological and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, which, like epilepsy, are characterized by instability of brain activity.”Research for the study was conducted by TAU PhD students Boaz Styr and Daniel Zarhin from Prof. Slutsky’s team and PhD student Nir Gonen under the joint supervision of Prof. Slutsky and Prof. Eytan Ruppin of the National Institutes of Health. Prof. Slutsky and her team also collaborated with the laboratories of Prof. Tamar Geiger of TAU’s Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Dr. Moran Rubinstein of TAU’s Sackler Faculty of Medicine and Prof. Dori Derdikman of the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology.Antonella Ruggiero, Refaela Atsmon, Neta Gazit, Gabriella Braun, Samuel Frere, Irena Vertkin, Ilana Shapira, Leore Heim and Maxim Katsenelson, all researchers in Prof. Slutsky’s lab, also participated in the study.Epilepsy is characterized by significant changes in the brain’s metabolic activity. To characterize these metabolic changes, Gonen plugged the genetic information of epilepsy patients gleaned from published databases into a computational metabolic model developed in Prof. Ruppin’s lab to identify the genes that transform the epileptic disease metabolic state back to a healthy one.”The leading prediction of metabolic modeling was dihydroorotate dehydrogenase (DHODH) gene, which is localized in the mitochondria, serving as the cell’s source of energy,” says Prof. Slutsky. “Our data suggest that DHODH inhibition by the drug Teriflunomide, approved for multiple sclerosis treatment due to its immunosuppressive actions in the blood, resulted in a stable inhibition of neuronal activity, without impairing compensatory mechanisms to activity-dependent perturbations.”Related StoriesWhy Mattresses Could be a Health Threat to Sleeping ChildrenHealthy lifestyle lowers dementia risk despite genetic predispositionResearchers report how a popular antidepressant drug could rewire the brainThe computational analysis indicates that DHODH plays a major role in the metabolic condition created by the ketogenic diet — a fat- and protein-rich, carbohydrate-poor diet, which has been effective in reducing the incidence of epileptic seizures.In a series of experiments on healthy brain cells in vitro, Styr found that Teriflunomide significantly inhibited neuronal activity irrespective of its immunosuppressive effects. He later discovered an interesting phenomenon: If you leave the drug in neural networks for several days, the inhibition becomes permanent, without any sign of expected compensation.”This could be due to impairments of the compensatory mechanisms or changing the set point value itself,” explains Prof. Slutsky.To test this hypothesis, Styr examined the response of neurons to perturbations that increase or decrease neural activity in the presence of Teriflunomide. He found that homeostatic mechanisms are still active under DHODH inhibition, yet are tuned to a new, lower set point. “These results highlight DHODH as a bona fide regulator of activity set point,” explains Prof. Slutsky.Zarhin studied the effect of Teriflunomide on two mouse models of epilepsy: an acute model that causes immediate epileptic seizures and a chronic genetic model of Dravet syndrome that causes severe epilepsy in children. Because the oral Teriflunomide poorly penetrates the brain, Zarhin examined the possibility of injecting it directly into the brains of the mice. The findings were highly encouraging: Both models showed a return to normal brain activity, along with a dramatic decrease in the severity of epileptic seizures. Notably, the drug rescued calcium overload in the mitochondria, a hallmark of epilepsy and many neurodegenerative diseases. Modification of Teriflunomide and development of new DHODH inhibitors with improved blood-brain-barrier permeability is urgent for drug-resistant epilepsy patients.”We have discovered a new mitochondrial mechanism responsible for regulating brain activity in the hippocampus, which may serve as a basis for the development of novel antiepileptic drugs by lowering dysregulated set points,” concludes Prof. Slutsky. “Drugs based on this new principle may give hope to 30 to 40 percent of epilepsy patients, who are not responding to existing therapies, including children with Dravet syndrome, about 20 percent of whom die from the disease. We are currently examining whether failure in activity set point regulation exists in Alzheimer’s disease. If so, it may provide a new conceptual way to treat memory disorders.” Source:https://www.aftau.org/weblog-medicine–health?&storyid4704=2450&ncs4704=3last_img read more
