Verizon hikes prices but new options could save you money

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Verizon is hiking prices on its cellphone plans, though the new rates come with changes that might actually save you money.If you do nothing, your prices won’t automatically go up. But new benefits announced Wednesday — including better options when travelling in Canada and Mexico — require you to switch to the new rates, which start Thursday.While people still make plenty of calls, plain old data — much of it for streaming video and playing games — is emerging as the most important part of your cellphone plan. Verizon’s changes reflect that. Even if you’re happy with your current plan, it’s still a good time to review it.___THE PRICE HIKESVerizon’s prices are going up by $5 to $10 a month, but you’ll get more data. The cost per gigabyte is going down.Under Verizon’s old plan, individuals paid $50 a month for 1 gigabyte of cellular data. Starting Thursday, the base plan will offer 2 gigabytes for $55. A family of four sharing 12 gigabytes previously paid $160; now, the same family will pay $170 for 16 gigabytes. Prices don’t include the phone.If your data needs fell somewhere between two offerings, you had to bump up to the higher plan. Now that each offering is getting more data, the lower plan might meet your needs. Let’s say you need 2 gigabytes a month. Before, you had to pay $65 for 3 gigabytes and let 1 gigabyte go to waste. Now you can buy the 2 gigabyte plan for $55.If you were already using up most of your 3 gigabytes, you can stick with the old plan for $65 rather than pay the increase. Any future changes will subject you to the new prices — unless, that is, you’re on a plan introduced before last year, such as “More Everything.” Those older plans will still let you change your data levels.___HOW MUCH DATA DO YOU NEED?When comparing plans among carriers, estimate how much data you use with and without data-hungry streaming video. T-Mobile, for instance, exempts many leading video services and music from data quotas, so you won’t need to buy as much. But it only offers that free streaming at DVD quality (lower than high definition) and for plans that include at least 3 gigabytes of data.Verizon makes a similar exemption for its own video service, go90. But leading services such as Netflix, Hulu and Amazon will still count against your limit.___USING MORE DATA … OR LESSIf you exceed your data limit, Sprint and T-Mobile won’t charge you extra, but will slow your data speed to a crawl until the next billing period. You’ll be able to check email and post a Facebook status, but forget streaming video. Verizon is also introducing this slower option, which it counterintuitively calls Safety Mode. It’s free for plans with at least 16 gigabytes of data. Otherwise, you pay $5 a month per account for the “safety” of not getting charged even more for going over.What if you don’t use all your data? For plans of 3 gigabytes or more, T-Mobile lets you roll over up to 20 gigabytes of unused data for up to a year. Verizon, like AT&T , now also lets you roll over data. But it’s a use-it-or-lose-it proposition. The rollover data disappears after a month if you don’t use it — and to do that, you have to run through your monthly data allotment first.Sound complicated? As carriers try to match each other on price and benefits, they still need to maximize revenue — and increasingly that’s through higher data buckets and other fees.___MAKING THE SWITCHCarriers typically let you switch your data allotment from month to month. Verizon is introducing an app to make it easier to monitor your data use and switch to a bigger data plan. You can also downgrade, but changes don’t take effect until the next billing cycle. You can try timing your changes to your actual usage, though in practice it’s easy to get burned.You still don’t get billing based on actual use. With gas and electricity, you don’t choose how much energy you expect to need beforehand. You get metered and billed. Google has tried to extend this concept to the phone industry with its Project Fi service, but it hasn’t caught on. Verizon’s vice-president of consumer pricing, Rob Miller, says the company found in testing that consumers prefer the certainty of knowing what they’ll pay from month to month.___INTERNATIONAL DATAYou can use your U.S. data allotment while roaming in Mexico and Canada. There’s no extra charge if you’re on a Verizon plan with at least 16 gigabytes. Otherwise, you pay $2 per day per line.AT&T offers a similar benefit for Mexico, though only for plans with at least 15 gigabytes, while all of T-Mobile’s standard plans include it for both Canada and Mexico. With Sprint, you get up to 1 gigabyte of high-speed data when travelling in Canada, Mexico and much of Latin America.Sprint and T-Mobile also offer free roaming in other countries, but at slower data speeds. Verizon hikes prices, but new options could save you money FILE – In this June 6, 2013, file photo, pedestrians pass a Verizon Wireless store on Canal Street in New York. Verizon announced Wednesday, July 6, 2016, that the company is hiking prices on its cellphone plans, though the new rates come with changes that might actually save you money.

Premature babies smart pen to save NHS £1bn a year by revolutionising

first_imgBy contrast, the new device can detect tiny amounts of moisture on the outside of the body and uses wireless technology to send a signal to a computer which give the medic a “red, amber, green” result indicating how likely a premature birth is.The test, which could be ready to roll out across the NHS within three years, can accurately predict premature birth from as early as 20 weeks gestation.Professor Dilly Anumba, who is leading the research at Sheffield’s Royal Hallamshire Hospital, said: “If we are able to identify women at real risk, then we can target them for treatments way before pre-term birth occurs to reduce the risks of either the baby dying or the extremely premature baby surviving with cerebral palsy or other problems associated with prematurity.” Around 60,000 babies are born early each year in the UK, and complications from pre-term delivery are the leading single cause of deaths in children aged under five, while one in four babies born before 28 weeks suffer life-long complications.Once doctors know that a mother-to-be is at risk of giving birth prematurely, they can use the hormone progesterone or antibiotics to delay delivery.The knowledge can also give women a better chance of being near the hospitals best equipped to look after premature newborns.Professor Anumba said there was no reason why the test could not be used to screen all mothers during their mid-term checkup at 20 weeks.“If we can prolong pregnancy by two, three or four weeks we could make a big difference in terms of how well the babies are and how relatively healthy they are without some of these disabilities associated with pre-term delivery.”He added: “There is every suggestion it will be cost saving for the NHS if it’s as good as we think it could be.”The research has been funded in part by the National Institute for Health Research, the NHS research arm, and has included 200 women who have previously had pre-term births.Because of its small size and simplicity, the technology promises an even bigger impact in the developing world, where many women do not even have access to the current diagnostic techniques.Pre-term babies can have under-developed lungs, are at higher risk of infection due to a less effective immune system and can suffer bowel problems. They also tend to feed less well. Professor Dilly Anumba If we can prolong pregnancy by two, three or four weeks we could make a big difference in terms of how well the babies are and how relatively healthy they are without some of these disabilities associated with pre-term deliveryProfessor Anumba A new test promises to revolutionise the prevention of premature birth by accurately predicting the chances of pre-term delivery up to three months in advance, scientists have said.The “pencil-looking” non-invasive device will save the NHS £1 billion a year and can alert doctors to tell-tale accumulations of moisture in the cervix, giving them the chance to intervene and artificially prolong pregnancy.The new test, which has been trialled at an NHS hospital in Sheffield, takes a maximum of 15 seconds and is so simple it could be used by GPs or even nursing staff.Gynecologists currently have to rely on time-consuming and expensive procedures such as ultrasounds or fetal fibronectin swabs, which yield many false positives and, even when accurate, can only predict premature birth a few days hence.

VELUX – General sponsor of EHF Champions League

← Previous Story Romania: UCM Resita and Steaua drop on start Next Story → TOP 10 veterans of World handball: Goalkeepers and Scandinavians Velux EHF Champions League At today’s official EHF Men’s Champions League Opening Press Conference, the marketing arm of the European Handball Federation, EHF Marketing GmbH, was proud to announce an exciting development in the EHF Men’s Champions League, as international company, the VELUX Group, becomes the title sponsor of the EHF Men’s Champions League.The partnership with the VELUX Group, one of the strongest brands in the global building materials sector, will also mean a new name and a new look for Europe’s premier club handball competition.From the start of the Group Phase, the new name for the competition will be the VELUX EHF Men’s Champions League. The 2010/2011 season’s final weekend in the LANXESS arena, Cologne on 28 and 29 May 2011 will similarly be known as the VELUX EHF FINAL4.The partnership contract was signed at the press conference by EHF Secretary General Michael Wiederer, Managing Director of EHF Marketing Peter Vargo, VELUX EHF FINAL4 Ambassador Stefan Lövgren and Michael Rasmussen, Chief Marketing Officer of the VELUX group.VELUX EHF Men’s Champions League 2010/2011The 2010/2011 season sees a fresh challenge for Europe’s top 24 men’s clubs as the continent’s premier club handball competition is renamed the VELUX EHF Men’s Champions League, following a new cooperation with title partner, the VELUX Group.In 264 days we will know the title holder of the 18th VELUX EHF Men’s Champions League season. The road to Cologne is a very long one: From the first ball thrown in the Group Phase of the upcoming season on 22nd of September until the final whistle of the VELUX EHF FINAL4 in the LANXESS arena it will take 249 days. 8880 minutes will be played in the 148 VELUX EHF Men’s Champions League matches from the group phase on, about 400 players from 24 teams coming from 15 nations will participate in the major club competition in the world of handball.It will take 16 match days including the VELUX EHF FINAL4 weekend to know the winner – the same as last season. The successfully newly introduced playing system of the season 2009/2010 will continue in the same way.The Group Phase will be played within ten match days from September 2010 until the beginning of March 2011. So every Group Phase participant has five matches on home soil. Then the each four top ranked teams will meet in the Last 16 (at the end of March, beginning of April), the first knock-out stage, played in two legs (home and away matches).The winners of those last 16 matches are only one step away from the VELUX EHF FINAL4 – the Quarterfinals (20.4.-1.5.). Those four winners of the Quarterfinals have reached the final destination Cologne – they will play for the trophy on 28/29 May, first in the semi-finals, then in the Final and the third/fourth play-off.There are three newcomers in the VELUX EHF Men’s Champions League: Danish champion, Aab Handball, St. Petersburg HC (runners-up in Russia) and GC Dinamo Minsk have qualified for the very first time. RK Zagreb is the record holder, as the Croatian champion is the only team which has played in all previous 18 CL seasons since the start in 1993 ahead of ZK Celje (Slovenia/17 times) and MKB Veszprem (Hungary/16 times).Record champion of the VELUX EHF Men’s Champions League is still FC Barcelona, last season’s finalist in Cologne. The Catalans have won the trophy six times. Another fact shows the strength of this season’s CL: 14 of the 17 previous Champions League winners have qualified for the 2010/2011 edition.text: EHF read more

We didnt think it was appropriate Charlie Flanagan defends Irelands abstention on

first_imgUpdated 10.29 amFOREIGN AFFAIRS MINISTER Charlie Flanagan says that he will contact the Israeli ambassador today as he defended Ireland’s abstention on a UN resolution that sought to investigate Israel’s military actions in Gaza.The Government has come under criticism for its abstention, which it undertook along with the other EU states, from several quarters including from its own members.But speaking on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland, Flanagan said that Ireland had a number of issues with the UN Human Right’s Council’s resolution that was passed on Wednesday:We didn’t think it was appropriate to allow for a new investigation having regard to current existing UN structures. Secondly, we had problems with the text, we wanted it to include all violent acts on all sides including Hamas and other militant groups in the region.“We referred to the fact that the resolution failed to recognise the right of Israel as a democratic state in the region and it’s right to defend itself,” he added.Flanagan said that Ireland was doing “everything in its power” both bilaterally and through the UN to help curb the violence, saying that he had met with Israeli officials as part of this strategy.“Last week I met with the Israeli ambassador and conveyed to him, in no uncertain terms, the deep concern of the Irish people about the appalling level of casualties in Gaza,” he said. Protesters outside the Department of Foreign Affairs in Dublin during the week. Source: Sam Boal/Photocall IrelandHe added that he has also met with the Arab League yesterday as well as Egyptian officials:We have a recurring problem in Gaza every few years now and this crisis, however appalling that it is, is not the first such crisis. What we have to do is hope that this is going to be the last one and the underlying issues that contribute the violence can be dealt with.Pushed about the growing opposition to Israel’s actions even among previous supporters of the state, Flanagan repeated that there are two sides to the conflict.“I believe it must be in the context of Israel as a democratic state and its right to defend itself and to defend its territory,” he said.The minster said that Ireland must be seen to be even handed because he has seen at discussions in Brussels how “our voice is stronger and our influence is greater”, adding that the accepted resolution was weak.“I believe that it was an opportunity lost because the resolution could have been stronger and could have been better,” he said.*Clarification: An earlier version of the article attributed a quote to the Minister saying that the “resolution failed to recognise the rise of Israel as a democratic state.”The correct quote should have been that the “resolution failed to recognise the right of Israel as a democratic state.” It has been corrected accordingly. Read: Why did Ireland abstain from a UN Human Rights Council vote on Gaza? >Read: Palestinian shot dead by Israeli forces in West Bank protests >last_img read more

Philips latest 3DTV absurdly wide passive 3D fancy multiplayer gaming tech

first_imgEvery kid knows that 3D doesn’t have to be an expensive technology. After all, the back of a cereal box can do 3D: just take a set of cardboard glasses, lens them with cellophane and color one of those blue and the other one red and you’ve got viable 3D. The 3D you see at the movies isn’t much more expensive. So why do modern 3DTVs insist on you spending a couple hundred dollars on each viewer for 3D glasses?Quality has a lot to do with it: active shutter glasses, which rapidly oscillate the image between each eye, just look better than other 3D, and eliminate entirely the cloudy and dark quality that passive, movie-theater-style 3D has. But make no mistake: money grubbing is an equal part here. Requiring your viewers to buy expensive active shutter glasses might lock you out of the low-end market, but it also guarantees that the average family is going to spend nearly a grand more on your television than they might otherwise have.Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of companies out there making 3DTVs for us cheapskates for whom passive 3D is good enough, but Philips has just outed the latest in its Cinema 21:9 HDTV Range, and not only does the new Philips Cinema 21:9 Gold Series TV use passive 3D glasses, it also comes with real-time 2D-to-3D conversion and ships with a 3D gaming mode which allows two players to see a full screen 3D view simultaneously. Neat!Software features include Facebook and Twitter access, streaming photos, music and video from tablets, smartphones and computers, online movie and TV streaming. Other specs include 1080p, a 100Hz refresh rate, LED backlighting, and integrated WiFi.This 50-incher looks like a fantastic television. Unfortunately, there’s no word on price, and my guess is that despite Philips’ decision to eschew active shutter 3D, none of this is going to be cheap.Read more at Philipslast_img read more

Forêt de Fontainebleau bientôt un parc national

first_imgForêt de Fontainebleau : bientôt un parc national ?Fontainebleau, France – Un comité constitué d’élus locaux, de scientifiques et d’usagers souhaite faire de la forêt de Fontainebleau un parc national. Leur objectif : préserver et valoriser “l’une des forêts les plus riches de France en termes de biodiversité”.Déployée sur quelque 25.000 hectares en Seine-et-Marne, la forêt de Fontainebleau abrite “la plus grande diversité d’insectes en Europe” souligne auprès de l’AFP Frédéric Valletoux, le maire UMP de Fontainebleau. Offrir à cette forêt le statut de parc national permettrait de protéger sa grande biodiversité, mais aussi de rendre le site encore plus attractif, grâce à un “label de qualité (…) repéré au niveau international”.Traversée par une autoroute, cette forêt sur laquelle vivent plus de 35.000 personnes, accueille chaque année plus de 20 millions de visiteurs. Le statut de parc national offrirait “plus de moyens pour faciliter l’accueil touristique” comme pour organiser de façon optimale le trafic routier dans l’une des “zones les plus accidentogènes d’Île-de-France”.Créé il y a six mois, un comité de pilotage composé d’une quinzaine d’élus locaux, de scientifiques et d’usagers de la forêt s’est réuni samedi à Fontainebleau, pour valider un rapport avant de le transmettre au ministère de l’Écologie. Il demande la création d’un groupement d’intérêt public pour porter la candidature de cette forêt, le label “parc national” devant impérativement être porté par l’État.Le 22 septembre 2010 à 17:36 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Nintendo 3DS audio improved with awesome steampunk speakers

first_imgYou may never be getting that second analog stick on the Nintendo 3DS, but it is equally unforgivable that the company has also failed to deliver a set of steampunk speaker amplifiers. In a mod shown off on YouTube, a Japanese fellow has constructed a pair of clips that project the sound from the 3DS’ mediocre speakers. The results are surprisingly good.The contraption (this is the only word for it) is attached to a handy little stand. The 3DS sits on the cradle, and the speakers are attached via clips directly over the laughably small speakers on either side of the screen. Sound bounces around the unnecessarily long tubing, then out the flared ends. You can really hear a difference when he clips the amplifiers on. The louder sound should make musical games more enjoyable, though it’s still a little tinny. The stand also has a slot to hold the stylus when not in use.It sounds better than I would have expected, but it looks even cooler. It has an industrial steampunk thing going on, but I don’t know if that was intentional. Some buzz-kills might suggest that using the headphone jack is a more practical solution. To that I say: unacceptable. This speaker amplifier is clearly the best way to listen to your Nintendo 3DS. Accept no substitutes. Although, since this is not a product you can buy, your 3DS will never reach its full potential, although it may have improved sound output in the forthcoming 3DS XL.via Tiny Cartridgelast_img read more

Atari and Microsoft bring eight classic games to browsers

first_imgWith Atari turning 40 this year it’s only fit that they give their fans a birthday present. So they’re teaming up with Microsoft and the HTML5 experts at gskinner.com to bring eight of their best and most popular classic games to Internet browsers everywhere.As Atari working with Microsoft, the games will be optimized to work with Internet Explorer 10 but don’t worry, they’ll work just as well on any other browser. You will however be subject to adverts if you use any browser other than IE10.The eight games that will be available are: Asteroids, Combat, Centipede, Lunar Lander, Missile Command, Pong, Super Breakout and Yar’s Revenge but Atari want to have over 100 games in its library which will probably be released periodically over the next few months. Some games will include multi-player and some will utilize multi-touch technology, bringing a modern touch (geddit?) to these retro games and of course the look of the games are to be updated too, which means quite a lot of work is involved in this project.Playing on a joystick back in the day was great but now touchscreen is in and Atari is embracing this. Playing classic games such as breakout and pong on a tablet will be good fun and the progression from joystick to touch will not only feel natural, it will give gamers a whole new way to play these games.You can play them now at Atari Arcade and you can soon, on your Windows 8 tablet. There’s no offline version available sadly so at the moment, you can only play Asteroids when you’re online.last_img read more

UKs RobotCar demonstrated w Video

first_img Robot car to cut jams & prangs The goal of the project is for the RobotCar to drive itself mainly on short journeys on routes with which it is familiar. During the initial period the RobotCar builds a 3D map of routes taken by the car, which is being driven normally. Once it has built up a memory bank of familiar routes it begins to offer to take over and the driver can accept by tapping on the iPad screen. If there is any conflict between the three on-board computers autonomous driving is not offered. If there are any problems during autonomous driving the iPad prompts the driver to resume control. If they do not, the car slows to a stop.A laser under the front fender scans with an 85 degree field of view up to 50 metres ahead for obstacles such as pedestrians, other vehicles, or objects, and if the car is in control it automatically slows to a stop if an obstacle is detected. It accelerates and continues its journey only when the road ahead is clear.The Oxford team, led by Professor Paul Newman, expects manufacturers will be fitting the system into their cars within 15 years or less. They say the autonomous vehicles will make the roads safer and less congested, and will be particularly useful for drivers following regular routes. Professor Newman said the cars of the future would be driving themselves some of the time rather than all of the time. © 2013 Phys.org The system consists of a modified Nissan LEAF electric car with an iPad mounted in easy reach of the driver, lasers attached to the front of the car, and stereo cameras that work with the lasers to produce a three-dimensional image of the route being taken. The lasers and cameras constantly map out the route being taken by the car.The entire system is controlled by a Main Vehicle Computer (MVC) installed in the trunk, which can control virtually every aspect of the car. A third computer is the Low Level Controller (LLC), which communicates directly with the iPad user interface. The system does not depend on GPS. More information: mrg.robots.ox.ac.uk/robotcar/ The car, being developed by Oxford RobotCar UK, is designed to allow drivers to decide to let the car take over the driving when the car’s computer makes the offer. A simple tap on the brakes at any time returns control immediately to the driver.Unlike other autonomous vehicles being developed by groups such as Google, the UK team have concentrated on developing their technology using cheap components such as sensors to dramatically reduce the cost. At present, the system costs about £5000 (7750 USD), but the scientists hope to be able to reduce the cost to as little as £100 (about 150 USD) Citation: UK’s RobotCar demonstrated (w/ Video) (2013, February 15) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-02-uk-robotcar-video.html The RobotCar has been demonstrated on private roads around the Begbroke Science Park in Oxfordshire, but the group is in talks with Britain’s Department of Transport to arrange for trials on public roads.

first_imgIn response to acclaimed Kannada theatre artiste and poet S Raghunandana’s refusal to accept Sangeet Natak Akademi award conferred on him, noted Indian writers have expressed their solidarity with him. The Bengaluru-based artiste, in a statement released after the announcement of the awards, cited “mob lynching and violence in the name of God and religion” and held the “powers-that-be” directly or indirectly responsible. Writers K Satchidanandan, Keki Daruwalla, Ganesh Devy, Ashok Vajpeyi, Nayantara Sahgal and Githa Hariharan have issued a statement have “saluted” this “act of protest”. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”Since 2015, writers and artists have protested against the culture of intolerance and hatred promoted by the present rulers of India. This tide of protest continues. “His open letter to the Akademi describes the acts of violence, abuse and vengeance that he is protesting against: lynchings by gaurakshaks; the abuse of Dalits, Muslims and women; the vicious propaganda against intellectuals and the hounding of activists; and the further erosion of educational and public institutions since the general elections of 2019,” the writers said in the statement issued on behalf of Indian Writers Forum.

The EHR/EMR Gateway seamlessly integrates patient imaging and reports from Medweb Collage into any EMR (electronic medical record) via industry standards. Additionally, a new application provides mobile and/or remote access to Medweb Collage so that authorized users can view and share data via a computer or mobile device. Medweb will be showcasing these new features and more at the American Telemedicine Association 2014 annual meeting in Baltimore, May 18-20.“In today’s changing healthcare environment, clinicians need access to patient data to make informed decisions regarding patient care, whether that access is through an EHR/EMR or remotely via mobile devices,” says Peter Killcommons, M.D., president and CEO of Medweb. “At Medweb we are dedicated to providing solutions that share patient information in real-time regardless of where the clinician or patient is located. Medweb Collage is the ideal solution enabling real-time communication and collaboration of patient data between clinicians and healthcare IT systems.”Medweb Collage is a real-time communication and store/forward eHealth solution in a single application. It is bundled with the company’s Handheld Telemedicine Kit, complete with a uniquely upgraded Multi-Scope and integrated digital ultrasound probes, along with additional peripheral options as desired. With the new EHR (electronic health record) integration, patient data uploads seamlessly to the facility’s EHR/EMR, enabling the user to see the entire study, consult and report. Medweb’s Collage EHR/EMR Gateway autopopulates patient data by entering the patient’s last name or patient ID. The user can capture images and patient demographics with the optional Medweb SmartConsult Telemedicine Clinical Pathways workflow applications. Additional enhancements to Medweb Collage will also be introduced at ATA 2014. In a single, secure and robust platform, Medweb SmartConsult Telemedicine Clinical Pathways solution offers full radiology workflow (including image display and storage), telemedicine workflows and basic EMR tools. The platform, along with all Medweb solutions, is also available as a cloud service. Medweb combines EMR and eHealth applications into an integrated workflow solution to move the point of care into the community.For more information: www.medweb.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more center_img Videos | Enterprise Imaging | July 09, 2019 VIDEO: Building the Right Team for Enterprise Imaging Success — Part 2 ITN Associate Editor Jeff Zagoudis speaks with Don Dennison read more Video Player is loading.Building the Right Team for Enterprise Imaging Success – Part 1Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 8:44Loaded: 1.86%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -8:44 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
