    One of the new features coming to the Apple Watch this year is a tool for measuring your blood oxygen level. The Apple Watch Series 6 features a new sensor on the underside of the wearable’s casing that uses both red and infrared light to measure the oxygen in your red blood cells in about 15 seconds. It can also do background readings while you sleep. Apple said it’s partnering with health networks across North America, including researchers at UC Irvine and the University of Toronto, to leverage the new feature to study the effects of COVID-19 on a person’s respiratory system.
    RALEIGH -- The National Hurricane Center is monitoring three tropical waves in the Atlantic storm basin, one of which is very likely to form into at least a tropical depression.The most concerning tropical wave is located over the eastern Atlantic Ocean.

    Officials at the United States Embassy in Kyiv may have broken federal law by launching an effort to monitor the social media accounts of 13 prominent Americans at the start of the Ukraine scandal in 2019, newly released State Department memos show. According to a Just the News report by journalist John Solomon — who worked for The Hill at the time and was among the individuals monitored — the memos were made public Tuesday under a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit brought by the conservative watchdog Judicial Watch. Other individuals listed as targets for monitoring in the memos included President Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.; the president's personal attorney, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani;...
    (CNN)The 2020 hurricane season continues to be record-breaking and on the heels of last week's devastating Hurricane Laura, the National Hurricane Center is closely watching four areas for possible tropical development. On average, there are only 11 named storms in a year. This season isn't even half way through and there have already been 13 named systems.Over the next 48 hours, two new systems closest to the United States have a high potential for development, each with a 70% chance of tropical formation. One of them is off the southeast coast of the US. It is about 150 miles south-southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina."This system has become better organized overnight, and a tropical depression is likely to form within a...

    Matthew Rozsa August 24, 2020 11:17PM (UTC) Police in Portland peppered protesters with tear gas on Monday as they assembled outside of a police station, following a weekend of ongoing demonstrations against police racism and in favor of defunding the police. Their actions continue a history of Portland police using tear gas on demonstrators tracing as far back as May. Portland made headlines last month after federal law enforcement began detaining protesters, even though it was unclear if all of those detained had been involved in illegal activity. Protesters and activists alike are fearful for the long-term effects of being exposed to chemical weapons. As the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality noted previously, there is no scientific precedent for the long-term exposure of tear gas...
    (CNN)The coronavirus pandemic might have a silver lining. With fewer in-person medical appointments and more virtual ones, patients are monitoring their health at home and catching potentially deadly signs and symptoms earlier, spurring a movement to get more monitoring devices into patients' hands. "Covid has lit a fire under us," said Dr. Michael Maniaci, who leads the Advanced Care at Home program at the Mayo Clinic's campus in Florida. Despite effort, enrollment of minorities for coronavirus vaccine trial is lagging It's one of several at-home programs gaining momentum because of the pandemic. "This opens the potential to re-imagine care in entirely new ways," said Dr. Peter Pronovost, who started an at-home monitoring program for coronavirus patients in Cleveland. "You can...
    DeFi in the SEC’s sights?

    San Mateo County now stands alone in the greater Bay Area, an island surrounded by others whose surging coronavirus cases landed them on California’s COVID-19 monitoring list that requires closure of everything from indoor classrooms, offices and shopping malls to gyms, churches, hair salons and barbershops. Not San Mateo County. As of Monday, you could still go inside for a haircut from East Palo Alto to Pacifica or even workout inside a fitness center in Redwood City. And for the moment, San Mateo County stands as the only place in the region that can welcome students back to classrooms without special permission. But there is little cause for celebration. Local officials and businesses expect they may land on the list...
    The lockdowns that have been mandated to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic may have had an unexpected but nevertheless mind-boggling effect: severely lowering the vibration of the Earth caused by human activity. According to a new study, led by the Royal Observatory of Belgium and published in Science, data collected from 268 seismic monitoring stations around the world up to May 2020 confirmed that the planet was vibrating up to 50 percent less than normal due to remarkable drops in high-frequency anthropogenic signals. The paper added that the difference in seismic activity correlated to countries that had undergone lockdowns. For example, the pattern started in China in late January, after the Middle Kingdom sought to clamp down...

    SEOUL, South Korea — In a cramped office in eastern Seoul, Hwang Seungwon points a remote control toward a huge NASA-like overhead screen stretching across one of the walls. With each flick of the control, a colorful array of pie charts, graphs and maps reveals the search habits of thousands of South Korean senior citizens being monitored by voice-enabled “smart” speakers, an experimental remote care service the company says is increasingly needed during the coronavirus crisis. “We closely monitor for signs of danger, whether they are more frequently using search words that indicate rising states of loneliness or insecurity,” said Hwang, director of a social enterprise that handles SK Telecom’s services. Trigger words lead to a recommendation for a visit...
