    iPadOS 15 will be the next version of the operating system that Apple created a couple of years ago for iPads, the absolute leaders in tablet sales. In the absence of knowing what the guys from Cupertino will be able to offer and if – as we hope after the change in architecture towards ARM for Mac – it moves towards the single operating system, we have a most attractive proof of concept. iPadOS was the big news at the WWDC 2019 developer conference. If until then all Apple tablets had used iOS, the company explained that they needed a new operating system to “recognize the distinctive iPad experience” and introduce aspects beyond iPhone development. A strategy similar to that used when creating watchOS for your smart watches or tvOS for living room entertainment, although the tablet version is the most interesting variant. Although the connection with iOS is still...
    Miami : The Miami Commission approved hiring a specialist city planning company to improve Little Havana’s pedestrian zones near four schools, one of the most dangerous areas in Miami-Dade. On January 25, on 22nd Avenue at the height of 3rd Street in the northwest of the city of Miami, a driver ran over a 60-year-old woman who was crossing the street and fled. It left her seriously injured. It is not an isolated fact. Every day pedestrians walk down this street and others in Little Havana with fear. Little Havana resident Raysa Fernandez explains some reasons.“I am afraid to even walk, I walk looking at the traffic because I am afraid that a car will go away and hit me, because people drive like crazy.” Older sidewalks are very narrow especially next to wide avenues with high speed vehicle traffic past schools and senior housing complexes. Miami Commissioner Joe...

    Twitter Accessibility highlights in 2020 Set up two accessibility-focused teams to focus on building a more inclusive product and workspace.  Submitting to third-party accessibility audits on new features like Fleets and Voice Tweets and conducting accessibility-focused user research studies.  Enabled default alt-text descriptions on photos and gifs for everyone on Twitter and extended the character limit from 420 to 1000.  It’s hard to get past Twitter’s blunder with Voice Tweets this year, but if you can, you might feel more forgiving. “For all the scrutiny Twitter gets, their accessibility in general has always been good,” Aquino said. As one of the smaller companies on this list, Twitter did not have a formal accessibility team prior to the Voice Tweets debacle, and instead relied on volunteers within its organization. The company has since acknowledged its severe oversight in that respect and formed...

    We kind of loved the beans. The Galaxy Buds Live’s bean-like shape made sense! But though it originally seemed like Samsung was in on the joke — the company called them beans internally, and even printed the word on the circuitry — Samsung’s next earbuds may take a take a different tack. Today, Indonesia’s telecommunications certification authority has revealed the company has a new “Galaxy Buds Pro” set of earbuds waiting in the wings (via MySmartPrice), and SamMobile may have already revealed what to expect: a source says they’ll be a set of sealed in-ear buds with the same design as the earlier Galaxy Buds+, only now with active noise cancellation and “an improved Ambient mode” to let you hear more of your surroundings. Here’s where the Galaxy Buds Pro appear in Indonesia’s SDPPI database.Screenshot by Sean Hollister / The News Brig ...
    Undaunted by losing all five starters from a team that won the Big Ten women’s basketball championship, Maryland coach Brenda Frese restocked the roster with enough talent to potentially keep the Terrapins atop a conference they’ve ruled since arriving in 2014. Maryland is among five Big Ten teams in the preseason Top 25 poll. The Terps check in at No. 12, Indiana is 16, Northwestern follows at 17, Ohio State garnered the No. 20 spot and Michigan is at No. 25. So, despite its 92-12 regular-season record in the conference over the past six years, Maryland is no shoo-in to again win another title. “You’re going to have competition from top to bottom. It’s not going to be an easy gimme when you look at how much the rosters are changing with transfers,” Frese said, “You’re really going to have to be prepared every single night.” Frese is not alone...

For this topic, we called on two of our talented Foolish contributors to present both sides of the issue in one fell swoop. We'll dive in with an anti-gentrification perspective by Marc Rapport, and then look at what Laura Agadoni has to say on the other side of the fence.Anti-gentrification perspective: There are better optionsThe process now known as gentrification has arguably been going on as long as people have been living in cities, but the term itself was coined in the 1960s by a British sociologist to describe what was happening in London. That’s from a study by the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) that says, "From its inception, gentrification has been understood as a form...
    Border Patrol Chief Anthony J. Porvaznik gave the Daily Caller’s Richie McGinniss a tour of the southern border wall, and explained the tragic death that happened right before the barrier was erected. WATCH: After Senior Patrol Agent Luis A. Aguilar was killed while trying to stop a smuggler in 2008, the wall was funded and built at the Yuma, Arizona sector area.  Porvaznik explains how the border structure has made the area safer for those who visit there for recreational purposes and also for residents nearby concerned about their security. (RELATED: Illegal Crossings Plummet As Coronavirus Pandemic Shuts Down Border) “It used to be a high-traffic smuggle area and now it’s rare to get traffic,” Porvaznik said.  He also describes an incident where smugglers trying to cross the border using steel ramps with a Jeep ended up stuck, and the vehicle was left teetering on the 16 foot wall...

    MATTAWAMKEAG, Maine (AP) — A railway company has been awarded nearly $17 million in federal money to make improvements that will boost freight rail in central and eastern Maine. The money from the U.S. Department of Transportation is going to Springfield Terminal Railway Company, Republican Sen. Susan Collins said. Collins said the funds will help improve safety, efficiency and reliability for freight rail in Penobscot, Somerset, Waldo and Kennebec counties. Improvements to rail are especially important for the state's manufacturers and shippers, Collins said. The money is for infrastructure upgrades and rail crossing safety improvements, she said. Springfield Terminal Railway Company is expected to replace about 75 miles of rail, strengthen five bridges between Waterville and Mattawamkeag and make other improvements.

    BERLIN — The German hospital treating Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny for poisoning said Wednesday that his condition improved enough for him to be released, and suggested a “complete recovery” from the nerve agent was possible. Navalny, 44, spent 32 days in treatment in Berlin’s Charite hospital, 24 of which were in intensive care, before doctors deemed his “condition had improved sufficiently for him to be discharged from acute inpatient care.” The hospital said that based on Navalny’s progress, treating physicians believe that “complete recovery is possible,” but added that it ”remains too early to gauge the potential long-term effects of his severe poisoning.” RUSSIAN OPPOSITION LEADER ALEXEI NAVALNY SHARES PICTURE FROM HOSPITAL BED AFTER SUSPECTED POISONING Navalny, the most visible opponent of Russian President Vladimir Putin, was flown to Germany two days after falling ill on Aug. 20 on a domestic flight in Russia.

    With coronavirus numbers continuing to improve, Orange County officials said this week that a wider reopening of businesses could be around the corner. The county is in Tier 2 — the second-strictest in California’s four-tier system that assesses COVID-19 transmission. However, officials said this week they think Orange County could soon enter the less-restrictive Tier 3, based on how numbers are trending. “There has been a steady but consistent decline in testing positivity rate,” County Executive Officer Frank Kim said Monday. “Things are looking good.” Tracking coronavirus in Orange County Tracking coronavirus in Orange County The latest maps and charts on the spread of COVID-19 in Orange County, including cases, deaths, closures and restrictions.

    National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow confirmed Thursday that the economy is improving ahead of the November election, but veteran pollster Frank Luntz told “Your World with Neil Cavuto” that the recovery might be "too little, too late" for President Trump to remain in office after January 2021. "Let's be candid. The economy back in March, before COVID, was the strongest economy this country has ever seen in modern times," Luntz told host Neil Cavuto. "And that economy was strong enough to propel Donald Trump to reelection ... Everything that you would want in the economy to get somebody reelected was perfect.” During the pandemic, unemployment rates -- which Luntz described as the biggest economic concern for Americans -- have skyrocketed. VideoKUDLOW PREDICTS 'SELF-SUSTAINING' RECOVERY FOR US “We have been asking Americans, what is the single most important factor for you to decide whether the economy is working or not?” he said. “The president talks...

    New York Giants: Why Jabrill Peppers Will Be An Improved Player In 2020 By: Anthony Rivardo July 26, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesThe New York Giants have put together a young, talented secondary entering the 2020 NFL season. New York has invested plenty of assets into its defensive secondary over the past two years. The Giants drafted three defensive backs in 2019, signed James Bradberry to a lucrative contract in 2020, then drafted three more defensive backs in the 2020 NFL Draft. Possibly the most crucial acquisition in the secondary, though, was a trade made in the 2019 offseason. The infamous Odell Beckham Jr. trade that sent New York’s star receiver to Cleveland yielded the Giants a talented, young safety: Jabrill Peppers. Flashes Of Great Potential In his first season with the New York...
    Denzel Perryman, Desmond King II, Los Angeles Chargers. (Photo by Matthew Stockman/Getty Images) Which five NFL defenses will be the most improved in 2020 over last season? You can’t win big if you can’t stop a nosebleed in the NFL. And that is a major issue with many teams every season. While having an offense capable of putting up 30 points on the board on any given Sunday, it won’t matter if a defense gives up 31. A team is what it record indicates, no matter how you try to slice it. That’s not to say a team must have an elite defense to win big games, but having a good defense is good enough. Look at the Kansas City Chiefs from a season ago. We know this is an offensive-driven team built by quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ powerful right arm and head coach Andy Reid’s play-calling wizardry. However, the Chiefs...
    (CNN)It will be as easy as brushing your teeth or shaving, and as long as future studies support it, it just might save your eyesight.A few minutes of looking into a deep red light could have a dramatic effect on preventing eyesight decline as we age, according to a new study published this week in The Journals of Gerontology.If the results are replicated in future studies, and approved by the US Food and Drug Administration, the light could augur a new era in which millions of people have access to the easy home-based therapy. It would give them a new layer of protection against the natural aging processes that steal our eyes' sensitivity to light and ability to distinguish colors."You don't need to use it for very long to start getting a strong result," said lead author Glen Jeffery, a professor of neuroscience at University College London's Institute of Ophthalmology.The...
    New York Giants: Who will be the most improved player on offense in 2020? By: Alexander Wilson June 28, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesOn paper, the New York Giants have a much-improved roster on both sides of the ball, but there will be weaknesses they have to iron out and refine as the season goes on. A rebuild takes time, and the Giants are currently in the middle of one. General manager Dave Gettleman made it a priority to fix the offensive line once and for all, but nothing is set in stone despite spending the fourth overall pick on Andrew Thomas. Nate Solder, who played left tackle for the Giants in 2019, struggled immensely, allowing 11 sacks, which ranked third-worst in the NFL. Improving this unit is essential, but there is one player...
