Google Fit Now Tracks Sleep Adds Dark Mode

first_img Google Fit Now Tracks Workouts on iOS Stay on target Fitness means more than washboard abs and toned arms.So Google Fit is rolling out improved sleep insights and dark mode to its iOS and Android apps.“We understand that maintaining a healthy lifestyle is more than just tracking what you do on the go,” Product Manager Defne Gurel wrote in a blog post. “It’s also about resting up and powering down.”Now, in addition to recording Heart Points and Move Minutes, users can track sleep patterns.Simply connect your favorite (or randomly-chosen-from-the-app-store) sleep program to Google Fit to keep an eye on your hibernation habits: Get a better sense of whether you need to start going to sleep earlier or convince your partner to wear an anti-snoring device.Add to or edit your sleep history via the “Journal” feature.Google Fit’s new dark theme, meanwhile, is easy on the eyes (and the phone battery), helping to lull users into a deep, relaxing, restful sleep.Gurel also introduced map routes for iPhone—a function already available on Android that plots your running, hiking, or cycling paths. The new function pairs with Google Wear OS, Apple watchOS, and other connected apps.The iOS update comes four months after Google Fit first landed on iDevices (four and a half years post-Android launch).Manually enter activities—everything from aerobics to Zumba—as well as calories burned, steps taken, and distance traveled. Or connect Apple Health-compatible apps like Sleep Cycle, Nike Run Club, and Headspace to sync with Google Fit.Smartwatch wearers, of course, have a direct link to the service, which automatically documents workout sessions.More on Geek.com:Kickstart This Sleep Box Inspired by Mark ZuckerbergCan Smart PJs Help You Get a Good Night’s Sleep?Next-Gen Google Glass Wearable Ready for Businesslast_img read more

FIFA president calls for racism to end Its not acceptable

first_imgFIFA president Gianni Infantino is working hard to stamp out racism from football following a number of incidents in recent weeks.Infantino’s declaration comes after a Ligue 1 match between Dijon and Amiens on Saturday afternoon was postponed for five minutes due to the visitors’ captain Prince Gouano being targeted for racial abuse.The French defender’s request to stop the match was accepted by the referee before action eventually resumed, with Dijon and Amiens settling for a goalless draw.Moise Kean, Kalidou Koulibaly, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mohamed Salah, Raheem Sterling and Danny Rose are some of the other high-profile names to suffer racism this season.“In recent days, it has been very sad to see a number of racist incidents in football,” read a FIFA statement.“This is really not acceptable.“Racism has no place in football, just as it has no place in society.IranFan dies after setting herself on fire protesting Iran’s ban on women spectators Manuel R.

Proud Nuno reflects on Newcastle win

first_imgWolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo says he’s proud of his players after they beat a 10-man Newcastle United 2-1 on Sunday.Matt Doherty scored the winner in injury time to give Wolves’ all three points after Newcastle defender DeAndre Yedlin was sent off in the 57th minute at James’ Park.Despite being proud of his team’s performance, Nuno believes there is room for improvements as they prepare to play AFC Bournemouth next week.“It was not so good, honestly and we’ve spoken to each other,” Nuno told the club’s website.“We must be proud because one thing we didn’t abandon was that we stayed with the game.

OSU Medical Center is the only place in the world performing treadmill exercise stress tests inside the MRI scan room.”The standard design of treadmills has made exercise stress testing a challenge near the large magnetic field generated by the MRI equipment. Simonetti and his team, working with graduate students from Ohio State’s College of Engineering and faculty from the OSU Agricultural Technical Institute, modified a treadmill for use in close proximity to the MRI exam table. Magnetic components were replaced with non-magnetic stainless steel and aluminum equivalents.While patients perform the treadmill exercise test, they are monitored using a 12-lead electrocardiogram system that is disconnected after exercise. Heart rate and rhythm are then monitored with a wireless, MRI-compatible electrode unit while patients undergo a rapid, real-time imaging procedure that takes less than one minute. “Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and by combining our medical expertise with other disciplines, we can develop safe approaches for improved diagnosis and treatment,” said Subha Raman, M.D., associate professor of internal medicine in OSU Medical Center’s division of cardiovascular medicine. “While current forms of stress testing have been helpful, combining exercise stress with cardiac magnetic resonance imaging allows us to better measure the presence and extent of heart disease with a clarity not previously possible.”For more information: www.medicine.osu.edu FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) | August 01, 2019 | Jeff Zagoudis, Associate Editor FDA Issues Draft Guidance on Medical Device Safety in MRI Environment The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a new draft guidance titled Testing and Labeling Medical Devices for… read more Related Content Technology | Interventional Radiology | August 16, 2019 Profound Medical Receives U.S. FDA 510(k) Clearance for Tulsa-Pro Profound Medical Corp. announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to… read more Feature | Contrast Media | July 18, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr How To Manage Risk in the MR Suite Macrocyclic contrast agents have the best safety profile of all the magnetic resonance (MR) contrast media that are n read more News | Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) | July 16, 2019 AAPM 2019 Features More Than 40 Presentations on ViewRay’s MRIdian MRI-guided Radiotherapy ViewRay Inc. announced that the company’s MRIdian System is the focus of more than 40 abstracts selected by the… read more News | Neuro Imaging | July 05, 2019 Delta T1 Maps Provide Quantitative, Automated Solution to Assess Brain Tumor Burden Imaging Biometrics LLC (IB) a subsidiary of IQ-AI Ltd., is highlighting a recently published study in the American… read morelast_img read more

California Home Sales Sink in May

first_imgCalifornia Home Sales Sink in May Share Sales in California once again came in below average last month as the statewide median price inched up ever higher.In May, sales throughout the state totaled an estimated 37,734 units, down 0.7 percent from April and 14.4 percent from May 2013, according to DataQuick. The figure includes both new and existing homes as well as condos.Compared to the long-term May average, last month’s sales were down 18.3 percent. “California sales haven’t been above average for any particular month in more than eight years,” the company said in its latest report.Of the existing homes sold during the month, DataQuick estimates 6 percent were properties that had been foreclosed on during the past year, while 6.9 percent were short sales.The median price paid for a home in the Golden State in May was $386,000, an increase of 0.8 percent month-over-month and the highest since December 2007, when it was down to $402,000 from the year’s earlier peak of $484,000.A year ago, the median price statewide was $340,000. May marked the 27th straight month in which the state’s median sales price was up compared to a year prior.Meanwhile, the typical monthly mortgage payment that California buyers committed to paying in May was $1,508, putting it between $1,523 recorded in April and $1,227 in May 2013.Overall, the company concluded signs of market distress remain in decline: “Foreclosure activity remains well below year-ago and peak levels reached in the last six years.

Amethi millennial voters are looking beyond Rahul Gandhi Vast armies of tiny tree-killing insects called bark beetles have eaten their way through millions of hectares of pine forest in the western United States since the mid-1990s leaving the mountains of Colorado Wyoming Montana Idaho and other states riddled with dead trees But contrary to popular belief say the authors of a new study the beetles aren’t to blame for the record-breaking extent of the wildfires that have torched the region’s forests in recent years The study published online on 23 March in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences is the first to take a large-scale look at how beetles are affecting the acreage burned across the western United States Its findings are consistent with earlier research looking at smaller regions and are likely to fuel an ongoing debate over the wisdom of relatively expensive federal efforts to cull insect-damaged trees from western forests in part to reduce fire risk “We examined [an] assumption that’s been made in a lot of policy and management discussions” says co-author Tom Veblen a forest and fire ecologist at the University of Colorado Boulder “That as a result of tree-kill by bark beetles there should be an increase in the aggregate area burned in the western US” To see if that assumption is correct the researchers compared US Forest Service maps of forests affected by the mountain pine beetle—the beetle species responsible for the most tree death—with maps of acreage burned during the peak wildfire seasons since 2002 “We were looking to see if there was more area burned in forests that had been infested by mountain pine beetle rather than the live forests” says lead author Sarah Hart a University of Colorado postdoctoral researcher The result Hart says: “We did not find any difference” Specifically the researchers found that beetles had recently attacked just 5% of the more than 100000 square kilometers of forest that burned during the 2006 2007 and 2012 wildfire seasons Intuitively it might seem that mountainsides pincushioned with dead dry trees should burn more readily than those still awash in green News headlines have frequently linked beetle-kill with fire risk as have lawmakers The 2014 Farm Bill passed by Congress for instance authorized spending up to $200 million annually to combat insect and disease threats to trees on some 18 million hectares of public land Such efforts—including removing or “thinning” insect-damaged trees from forests—would “help reduce the risk of wildfires and the threats they pose to our communities and natural resources” Senator Michael Bennet (D–CO) predicted at the time Some researchers however worry that poorly planned thinning efforts could be at best a waste of money and at worst do more ecological damage to forests than they prevent Veblen for instance says that the evidence suggests that thinning beetle-kill at a “landscape-scale” isn’t likely to prevent big fires In part that’s because hot dry weather plays a much bigger role than beetles in determining when and where forests burn he and his colleagues have concluded Under those conditions—which have been common in recent years—both live and dead stands of trees burn spectacularly well (Veblen acknowledges that smaller scale thinning efforts are necessary to reduce fire risk around homes and critical infrastructure such as reservoirs but notes that such strategies are often useful whether or not trees have been killed by beetles) Although the study’s main finding is sound says Matt Jolly a research ecologist with the US Forest Service’s Fire Sciences Laboratory in Missoula Montana the research does not address another issue that’s frequently overlooked: how insect damage might influence the behavior of wildfires making them more dangerous and difficult to fight “There are really two ways of looking at how mountain pine beetles affect actual fires” Jolly says One is to go in after the fact and study how beetles affected forest ecology or the area burned as Hart and Veblen did “The other side of the story” Jolly says “is to consider how those fires burned when they were burning” Lab studies and observational reports from firefighters show that the presence of beetle-kill can change fire behavior he says making the flames erratic and therefore more difficult to control “The flame lengths and rates of spread in the beetle-kill is significantly higher” Jolly says and fires may “spot” more shooting out sparks that light new fires and move in unpredictable directions—a major hazard for firefighters on the ground Those differences can influence decision-making during firefighting operations and they also matter for communities at the edge of forests ravaged by beetles In such places clearing insect-damaged trees may be a wise investment Even if thinning doesn’t prevent wildfire altogether it could increase firefighters’ ability to stop a fire advancing on homes and reduce the safety risks they face on the job Hart agrees that such concerns are real “We don’t want to say [beetles are] unimportant for fire” she says “But we do want to say that what burns isn’t strongly affected [by beetles]” And that has policy implications she adds “If you’re trying to manage for fire it’s probably a better strategy to manage for the underlying driver of fire across the West There we’re talking about warm and dry conditions” "How is it possible to iron out every flaw in over 70 districts in merely five years?C. says she’s "surprised and pleased" to see the scientific community organize itself so quickly "The scientists realize their work should be published not locked and that they are behind the steering wheel" says Joseph Although the petition singles out
