Service to be held today for slain off-duty Las Vegas police officer

first_imgABC News(LAS VEGAS) — A service will be held Thursday evening for Charleston Hartfield, an off-duty Las Vegas police officer and Nevada Army National Guard Sgt. 1st Class, who was killed Sunday night when a gunman opened fire on a county music festival.Hartfield, who leaves behind a son and daughter, was attending Route 91 Harvest festival in Las Vegas when he and 57 others were gunned down in what is now the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history.“I figured he was probably busy helping others,” friend Troy Rhett told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “I don’t know a better man than Charles. They say it’s always the good ones we lose early. There’s no truer statement than that with Charles.”Hartfield, who also was a youth football coach, wrote a book published in July called “Memoirs Of A Public Servant.” His bio said he had 16 years of military service and was in law enforcement for 11 years.“Charleston Hartfield lived to serve the public and protect his family,” Brig. Gen. William Burks, the adjutant general of the Nevada National Guard, said in a statement. “He is the epitome of a citizen-soldier.”Brig. Gen. Zachary Doser, commander, Nevada Army National Guard, said in the statement, “Sgt. 1st Class Hartfield epitomizes everything good about America and those who wear the uniform representative of the most powerful Army in the world.”The Las Vegas Review-Journal said the body of Hartfield, 34, was escorted by officers from several agencies Tuesday evening to the Palm Downtown Mortuary and Cemetery, where he will be laid to rest, police said. During the escort, some other local officers stood on the sidewalk, a few wiping away tears and then raising their hands in a salute, the newspaper reported.A service for Hartfield is set for 6 p.m. PT Thursday at Police Memorial Park in Las Vegas, the newspaper said.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

Neura brings machine learning and security ethics to IoT

first_imgTags:#Ethics#featured#IoT#Machine Learning#neural networks#privacy#security#top Last month Neura, the company calling itself  “the ethical personalization service for the Internet of Things,” announced that it had raised a $11 million Series A funding round. The firm appears to be leading in innovation in the creation of personalized data.Neura’s technology utilizes smarter integrations through machine learning to enable users to get to an unprecedented level of technology personalization. Apps and devices are enriched with insights not only about users’ past and present actions but also calculated predictions about the next thing they’re going to do.I met with Denis Vitchevsky, VP Strategy yesterday and I was keen to hear how such predictive technology might work in practice. He explains:“If you are listening to Spotify, we can tell Spotify your location and who you are with and Spotify will adapt what music is played accordingly, for example, play songs that suit driving or that will suit the tastes of both you and your partner.”This kind of intuitive learning can provide a plethora of conveniences to everyday life from a smart door lock that can request to know when you fall asleep at home, in order to check that the door is locked when it happens; to a smart car  requesting to know when you’re sleep deprived and when your blood sugar is low if you’re a diabetic, in order to turn on extra safety features.The data gleaned by Neura has an extensive range of potential commercial audiences and applications from car manufacturers gleaning information about how people drive their cars to urban planners learning a consumer’s geolocation over a period of time. Not to mention the extensive data that can be mined from health devices and apps.Making consumer tech more intuitiveNeura believes that the digital identity of the consumer  — generated by a consumer’s technology use — can enable connected products to become more intuitive. However, it’s worth stressing that in contrast to other companies, Neura works at creating a more ethical data sharing ecosystem. The digital identity can only be utilized with the express permission of users, giving individuals complete and irrevocable control over their data – allowing them to share only what they’re comfortable with, in exchange for tangible value.This is an interesting point of difference. Neura’s business model is to give their users a smart solution for interacting with their IoT space and selling data gleaned from their actions and preferences to their partners. For example, sharing your Fitbit data with an insurance company may result in cheaper insurance premiums. Or sharing your Google map geography could result in a discount by a car hire company. With their CTO Triinu Magi having been previously employed at RSA, the Security Division of EMC, it’s clear they take privacy seriously.Vitchevsky says:“Tech companies often see data as a monetization opportunity instead of helping the people they gathered it from. In turn, users are too willing to cede control of their personal information so they can use services like Google Maps or Facebook.”Neura’s API and SDK are available on Github for keen IoT developers to utilize and the company is hoping to launch on IoS soon (currently only in beta mode). Vitchevsky shared that they are currently teaming up with a range of companies engaged in IoT and health and it will be interesting to see what comes next.

AusSquad Launch A Success

first_imgField one was filled with children at the launch, as well as the Australian Men’s and Women’s Open National Training Squads, who were on hand to help launch the program. The children were split up into eight different groups, working on the core competencies of Touch Football, with Australian squad members on each station to help teach the children new skills. Touch Football Australia’s National Sport Development Coordinator, Adam Raptis, is responsible for the AusSquad program and hopes the children got something out of today’s launch. “The AusSquad program is about junior development and particularly tonight we are focussing on the skills and development aspect of the programs, so in more depth we are focussed on the eight core competencies of the game. Basically we had eight drills, covering those eight core competencies and hopefully the kids enjoyed it and had fun,” Raptis said. Australian Men’s Open squad member, Matt Prowse, was one of the players involved in the launch, and told the crowd what they should do in order to get to where he and his fellow Australian squad members are today. “I think probably something that I got told when I was younger was to listen to your coaches and work as hard as you can and you don’t have to be the star in the game to make it,” Prowse said. Touch Football Australia’s Chief Executive Officer, Colm Maguire, was pleased with how the launch went and is excited for the program to keep developing. “The AusSquad launch was fantastic, in terms of seeing something that has conceptually been put together. To see a concept that the organisation has worked very hard on and believes in and there’s a lot of work to do with it but to see it actually come into fruition and see our national representatives actually working with the kids and knowing that some of those national representatives have been coached by certain individuals that are at the event watching that, it was just a fantastic advertisement for the game to see people contributing back and hopefully that spurs on other people in the same way,” Maguire said. To find out more about the AusSquad program, please contact Touch Football Australia.last_img read more

Maersk Line Not Accepting Cargo tofrom Qatari Ports

first_imgzoom Danish shipping major Maersk Line has closed bookings for cargo that transship over Jebel Ali to or from Qatar for the time being.The move was triggered by the ongoing diplomatic crisis between Qatar and Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain, that banned ships in their ports coming or destined for Qatar.The restrictions were imposed following a diplomatic dispute between Saudi Arabia and Qatar which broke off all diplomatic ties. Subsequently, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt cut the ties with Qatar on June 5 on the grounds of its alleged relations with Iran and Islamist groups.However, the Suez Canal Authority has advised that vessels flying the Qatari flag transiting the Suez Canal will not face restrictions as Suez Canal is an international water passage.The decision is impacting directly the operations of DP World Jebel Ali and Abu Dhabi Terminals, which are no longer accepting cargo to/from Qatar ports, including transshipment cargo. The ban also includes Qatari-flagged ships.“In line with the UAE government’s recent decision on severing diplomatic ties with the State of Qatar, DP World confirms that vessels with the flag of Qatar or vessels destined to or arriving from Qatar are not allowed to call at any DP World terminals in the UAE until further notice,” a DP World spokesperson told World Maritime News in a statement.” We are working on alternative solutions to ensure movement of cargo in compliance with above guidelines,” Maersk Line said.Potential alternative solutions are expected to be announced within a couple of days.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

I am flexible batting at any position cant demand number spot Iyer

first_imgPort-of-Spain: Shreyas Iyer says he is “flexible” batting at any position as the Indian team management continues its search for a reliable number four batsman. Iyer, who is part of the team touring the Caribbean islands, could be in competition with the likes of K L Rahul and Rishabh Pant over the next two ODIs against the West Indies. “We have got no idea. It’s totally the management’s decision. I can’t go and say that I want to bat at number four and they would put me in that spot. It’s not like that,” Iyer said when asked about the problematic position. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over Chandigarh India could not find an answer to their number four conundrum through the World Cup and the search will continue in the remaining two games of the three-match ODI series. “It’s going to be a vacant spot and they are going to definitely try and give chances to all the players in that position. Currently, no one is convinced with that position,” the player said at the pre-match press conference. “Personally, I am not thinking about batting only at No.4. I want to be someone who is very flexible batting at any number or if you go into any situation you should be able to grab that opportunity and make the best use of it.” Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced later Iyer, who has a couple of half-centuries in the five ODI innings he has played so far, is coming into the team after an year and is eager to make the most of the opportunities. Rain interrupted the team’s training session on the eve of the second ODI here on Saturday. But despite the lack of practice, Iyer drew confidence from his India A stint in the Caribbean, where he was the third-highest run-getter in the one-dayers with 187 runs in four innings. “It’s going to be another two opportunities for me to make the best use of it. Hopefully this also doesn’t rain off. We are hardly getting any net practice. I am eager to go out there and carry forward the momentum which I got from my India A matches. Looking forward to a good series finish.” The first ODI in Guyana was washed out after only 13 overs. Asked about switching to ODIs from T20Is, Iyer said India have the momentum going into this series coming off a 3-0 sweep in the shortest format. “The momentum is always on our side. The way the team is playing currently, it’s totally amazing,” he said. “If one doesn’t perform, the next one raises his hand and he takes the responsibility to take the team through and this is what has been happening throughout the year.”last_img read more
