Twitter Bans Free Speech?

Twitter has banned all political ads on its platform becoming a hero for a day. It was a surprising move given the reluctance of tech companies to get involved in the content posted on their sites. Like most such actions, the actual impact will hardly be noticeable. Since Twitter is the only site to ban political ads, people will still be exposed to paid content from candidates on other larger networks. According to ComScore, Facebook and Google have significantly more unique users in the US than Twitter, so people will still be exposed to online political advertising. Second, Twitter makes news when influential people tweet. The more outrageous the statement, the more likely the information will spread, not only on Twitter, but in traditional news outlets as well. Pairing that with the fact that people tend to trust paid less than organic content, the tweets will still hit their targets who will be even more likely to believe what they read.

So, is it a public good that Twitter is banning political ads or not? It’s certainly a relatively easy thing for Twitter to do. It is much more difficult to monitor the ads and determine their veracity. This process would require flagging suspicious content and hiring people to evaluate the messages. The problem is that banning all political ads means that candidates who do not have strong Twitter followings will be less able to reach audiences with their messages, thus giving even more power to the powerful.

Artificial intelligence techniques are improving and tech firms may have more tools in the future to effectively monitor. In 2018 Instagram announced that they are using a machine learning platform called DeepText to detect bullying language. This kind of technology could be applied to political ads to flag them for internal review. However, the platforms may be reluctant to adopt the monitoring technologies because of the potential for increased scrutiny of their businesses by political and governmental entities.

Should I Upgrade My iPhone?

With new iPhone devices launched by Apple every fall, trying to figure out when the right time to get a new iPhone – or even just a new iPhone case – can be really confusing.

Some folks wait at least two or three new iPhones before they jump on board, other people grab the latest and greatest iPhone as soon as it comes out, and some folks (some might call them crazy) are even using iPhones that came out five or six years ago.

To help you figure out when you should consider upgrading your iPhone we’ve put together this quick guide.

Hopefully the inside information below helps you better determine when the time is right to own the trigger on a new phone from Apple, taking advantage of the latest and greatest technology without feeling like you are upgrading just for the sake of upgrading.

Let’s dig right in!

How is Your Battery Life?

The number one reason to upgrade your iPhone is because your older iPhone simply isn’t holding a charge as long as it used to – spending a lot more time on the charger than off of it.

Like anything else man-made, the batteries inside of iPhones are going to degrade over time. They aren’t going to be able to hold as much juice on a single charge as they use to when they were brand-new.

Now, you might not notice any real difference in battery life between a brand-new iPhone and a-year-old iPhone. But the odds are pretty good that you’ll notice some serious differences between a two-year-old, three-year-old, or even four-year-old iPhone and one just launched this year.

Not only are the new iPhone batteries bigger and capable of holding a charge longer than ever before, but they also use next-generation lithium-ion battery technology. This helps them last a lot longer than previous iPhone batteries could – a great reason to get your hands on a new one.

How is Your Camera?

The folks at Apple are always looking for new ways to push iPhone photography further and further into the future.

Almost every new iPhone comes with a radically new set of cameras, brand-new camera sensor technology, and all kinds of improvements to the way that photos and videos are handled and captured through iOS and apps.

This latest version of the iPhone is such a revolutionary new leap forward (whether you go with the dual or triple camera configuration) that folks are having to buy entirely different iPhone cases because the new camera set up is so completely different.

If you feel like your iPhone isn’t taking photos or videos in high definition any longer, or if you feel like you could be getting a lot more out of your smart phone pictures with next-generation technology, it may be time to get your hands on a brand-new iPhone.

As we highlighted just a second ago, the latest iPhone offers the best camera experience of ANY phone – ever.

How is iOS Working?

Apple gets a little bit of heat every now and again when people with older iPhones learn that they aren’t going to be able to update to the latest iOS (with the new iOS version launching almost every September alongside new iPhone devices).

But the truth the matter is that iOS has grown by leaps and bounds ever since it was first unveiled more than a decade ago. Older devices just don’t have the power, performance, or horsepower necessary to use the latest iOS features designed for much more robust iPhone devices – and modern applications may be programmed to take advantage of hardware features not available in the first few iPhones, too.

At the end of the day, the reason that Apple doesn’t allow every single iPhone (or iPad, for that matter) to update to the latest iOS – dropping support for some devices over time – is because those devices can’t run the iOS any longer.

It isn’t some sort of planned obsolescence but is instead just a reality of the technology landscape we live in today.

If you have an older iPhone that either cannot update to the latest iOS version (and cannot access new applications because of it) or have an older phone that just isn’t run the latest iOS all that smoothly, it’s probably time to shell out for a new iPhone that will be good for at least five years (if you don’t upgrade again in the meantime).

Common Types of Headaches & Relief Options

Almost everyone, at some point, has experienced some form of headache. While most will run their course and an individual can return to normal functioning, some headache types are quite disabling and cause disruption to one’s life. This article will focus on some of the most common headache types including sinus, weather-related, and migraine. Each type will be described and treatment options discussed. Keep in mind that an individual can have more than one type of headache (I like to say “dogs can have ticks and fleas!”).


Sinus Headaches


Sinus headaches are often migraine headaches with associated sinus symptoms. Sinus headaches are only considered “true” sinus headaches in the presence of a sinus infection characterized by fever, pressure/pain around the cheeks or forehead, purulent phlegm, congestion, and response to an antibiotic. By definition, a true sinus headache should resolve by completion of the antibiotics. Patients might also find relief from nasal decongestants, saline nasal sprays, and antihistamines. Acute and chronic sinusitis infections are often managed by Otolaryngologists (Ear, Nose and Throat physicians or ENT).

Studies have been done showing that sinus symptoms including facial pain, nasal and sinus congestion, and pain with leaning forward are most often migraine attacks. If a disabling headache, nausea, and sensitivity to light are present in addition to the sinus symptoms, then the diagnosis of a migraine headache is likely. This type of headache should respond to migraine specific medication like a triptan. In fact, the triptan (like sumatriptan) should help the sinus symptoms as well as the headache to go away.

Weather-Related Headaches


A weather-related headache is usually a migraine headache triggered by weather changes, specifically drops in barometric pressure but also temperature changes, high humidity, stormy weather, and extremely dry conditions. This affects the pressure in the external environment, including the external ear canal. A change in barometric pressure of as little as .20 millibars impacts the pressure in the ear canal and can trigger migraines.

How can this be treated? An example of a safe treatment approach for weather-induced headaches is the use of WeatherX, an ear pressure device that can be placed in the ear canal to minimize the change in barometric pressure between the external environment versus the inner pressure in an individual’s inner ear, sinuses, and Eustachian tube. WeatherX looks like a small set of ear plugs (drug & latex free) and is designed to control the rate of barometric pressure changes in the ear canal adjacent to the ear drum (tympanic membrane). This device is best used in conjunction with the free weather app (WeatherX) that can alert an individual about a predicted drop in barometric pressure. To learn more, an individual can go to www.weatherx.com

Migraines


Migraines are characterized by disabling attacks often including throbbing/pulsating pain, nausea, sensitivity to light, and the desire to be in a dark quiet room. Migraine is the 3rd most prevalent illness in the world. Common triggers include changes in sleep patterns, skipping meals, dehydration, weather changes/barometric pressure changes/altitude changes (including airplane travel), exercise, and stress. Also strong smells (perfumes, detergents), bright lights, smoke/pollution, motion sickness (car, train, boat), and changes in hormone levels that commonly occur during pregnancy, menstruation, menopause, hormone replacement therapy, and oral contraceptives. There are many things in our diet that can exacerbate or trigger migraines- alcohol, aged cheeses, nitrates, others.

With my patients, I try to address as many triggers as possible and that means taking a holistic approach. The category of medication that can be very helpful for acute treatment of migraine is triptans. NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatories) and anti-nausea medications are usually in the discussion as having a migraine “toolbox combination” can be most beneficial to abort their headache. If my patient’s trigger is lack of sleep or diet/hydration issue, we address that. In the case of weather/barometric pressure triggers, I recommend trying WeatherX earplugs. Using the WeatherX app, my patient is alerted to a significant drop in barometric pressure change thus the possibility of using the device to prevent the headache altogether.

In summary, these are just several types of common headaches but medical research and development has led to many safe, non-invasive treatment approaches. Correct diagnosis of headache type is critical to lead to effective treatment.

Top 5 Ways to Meet People Online

Meeting friends is an adventure filled with fun but always requires going out of one’s comfort zone especially if you just moved into a new area. Online is the best place to meet single women dating. Why? There are 3.9 billion users of the internet worldwide, while the United States accounted for about 293 million of this population. This is more than what a single neighborhood can accommodate. 

Meeting People Online

To meet people online, you may need to join some communities or forums. This is similar to offline life. In reality, people in search of friends or date will need to visit bars, clubs or any other socially engaging event. 

These online platforms such as Military Singles usually require all their users to fill out certain forms. They will extract information from the filled details to set up a profile which other users can always see to have some information about the new person they are meeting. 

Some of the popular and best ways to meet people online include; 

Social Media

There are more than 243 million users of social media networks in the United States. Some of these platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter are interesting places to find fantastic people. 

Facebook, for instance, is popular for connecting its users with friends and family. Anybody that has an account with Facebook will always be recommended to other people to become friends with through their algorithm that matches your account based on mutual friends you have with others. 

See someone you like? Send them a message and who knows, that might be the start of a long-term friendship. 

Dating Apps (Such as Military Singles)

Many people are already warming up to the idea of meeting people online through dating apps and sites. Ninety-one percent of Americans have reportedly tried online dating apps while almost 17 percent of them met their future partners through the apps. 

Dating apps and sites are not only meant for people in search of a date. In fact, a survey revealed 42 percent of Tinder users are married. Tinder is one of the most popular dating apps. 

Users of these apps may need not worry about the probability of people replying to their messages or showing interest in them. Grindr, a dating app for gays, for instance, has about 433.2 minutes of user engagement.

Thinking of the number of people you could meet? There are more than 8 million Tinder users. Plenty Of Fish (POF) also has more than 5 million users

Freelance Websites

The internet has made it easier for people to meet people to hire or outsource their jobs. 

People in search of new clients for their businesses may try freelance platforms to connect with new people. Popular freelance platforms like Upwork has more than 12 million registered users and 5 million users with approximately $1 billion worth of jobs posted yearly. 

These websites also offer escrow service that protects freelancers from not getting paid for their service. Some people have reportedly quit their day job to focus on freelancing full-time. However, this is not always advisable because it is not always as easy as it sounds. 

Team-Based Platforms

Anywhere in the world, meetings can be conducted with attendees located at different parts of the world through platforms like Skype and Hangout. Team communication has also been made easier all thanks to the internet. Team members can now communicate and share ideas irrespective of their locations by using platforms like Slack and Trello. 

These are great avenues of meeting people online. An employer using this kind of business model usually hire their employees from different parts of the world. Communicate with others, share ideas and you may be able to build your relationship beyond the platform. 

Schools using such a system most of the time always have lots of their students added to the group. This is an avenue for the student to build a relationship they may not be able to build while in class. 

Email

We receive different emails every day. Some annoying while others are important and informative. It is very possible to meet people through this medium. As a student intending to study in a particular school, to find out about the school admission criteria or assess your chances of getting admission there, search online for their email address and send them an email. 

Freelancers can also use the medium to solicit for work. Promotional emails from a company that might need their service is a lead. Send them the details of your service and await a response. 

Conclusion

Meeting people online is easier and more fun. However, it is advisable to be careful before agreeing to see anyone you meet online. When filling out the forms usually required by dating apps, users are advised to be sure of the apps’ validity to avoid leaking personal information to fraudsters. 

Aside from all of these, the internet has made it extremely easy to meet people online.

WHITE WINE EMOJI

THE WHITE WINE EMOJI WILL NEED TO CONTINUE TO AGE

Kendall-Jackson, the iconic leader of California Chardonnay, and the dozens of other supporting wine partners will have to wait a bit longer to toast its newest wine release, a White Wine Emoji

Kendall-Jackson’s 19-page proposal for a White Wine Emoji, now in its third draft, was up for review by the Unicode Technical Committee (UTC) at their July meeting held on the Microsoft Campus in Redmond, WA.  However, the White Wine Emoji will need more time to age – official meeting notes released from the UTC states that they will, “Continue to consider ‘white wine’ emoji for future addition,” and has a UTC Action Item, 160-A43, to do precisely that.

“The debate actually centers around color, not wine,” says Maggie Curry, Director of Marketing for Kendall-Jackson.  “Since a red wine emoji already exists, the white wine emoji is seen as a color variation and adding color variation to an emoji is proving more complex because the Unicode standard is not fully defined.”  With the UTC tasked at protecting the global keyboard, the addition of white wine has to be carefully considered, as it might open the door to many emoji color variations (Rosé wine for example, shades of beer, or even different color animals).

Kendall-Jackson vows to continue leading their efforts and global movement, and are hopeful to see progress on the proposal soon.  “The white wine emoji effort has garnered enthusiasm from around the globe, and we continue to refine our proposal to support the white wine emoji,” says Maggie Curry, Director of Marketing for Kendall-Jackson. 

Kendall-Jackson is currently updating their proposal for a fourth time, adding additional research that proves white wine as a necessary addition beyond red wine for emoji communication based on global use, economy, culture and industry.   

“For example, white wine is paramount in regions such as Alto Adige with Pinot Grigio, Mosel with Riesling, and Sancerre with Sauvignon Blanc, and there is currently no way to communicate by symbol when it comes to wine in those geographies,” says Curry “What started as a fun idea has now turned into a complex effort for Kendall-Jackson, the wine community, and wine fans around the globe.”

Kendall-Jackson and their global partners encourage the wine community to continue to call for the white wine emoji by using #WhiteWineEmoji on their social channels, which is easily tracked by Unicode to show global want and need.

As Pliny the Elder once said, “In vino veritas” (in wine there is truth), and Kendall-Jackson continues to push for wine symbol color variation to convey truth in the modern wine communication zeitgeist.

K-POP CONTENT MEDIA APP

theQoos Inc. has launched a data-based media service app platform that targets English reading K-Pop fans. Through aggregating K-Pop content, theQoos attempts to lock-in users and create communities among K-Pop fans. theQoos Inc. was established in February 2019 with a Seoul office established in April. The venture founders are composed of experienced members from Kakao, Samsung Electronics and, YG Entertainment USA. An investment by SK Group, South Korea’s third largest conglomerate, was completed earlier this year.

2019 has been yet another record-breaking year for K-Pop with BLACKPINK signing to Interscope/Universal Records and being the first K-Pop girl-group to perform at Coachella. BTS became the first Korean act to perform on “Saturday Night Live” and followed up with performances on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” “Good Morning America” and “The Voice.” A new study by Hyundai Research Institute found that the boy band is worth more than $3.6 billion yearly to Korea’s economy. Both acts contributed to the “Hallyu” (or Korean wave) fanbase which is estimated to grow to 100 million fans by 2020 and leading the way for other acts globally such as Monsta X and NCT. In the first half of 2019, there were over 50 concerts taking place in North America and as STYLE put it, “K-Pop is now more popular and profitable in the West than ever before.”

With the increased interest in K-Pop globally, theQoos set out to build a roadway for content by gathering as many select English-written sources of K-Pop into one feed. The idea is that fans who have an enthusiastic passion for K-Pop are called “theQoos” and want to consume all of the content that exists out there without having to search or open multiple applications. These content sources include K-Pop news sites, reputable global news sites that cover K-Pop, artists’ official social media, and YouTube but also fan-made content such as reaction videos, and fancam footage. Since many K-Pop fans usually find their news through K-Pop sites, theQoos also gathers in-depth coverage from respected major media outlets so users can see content they might not normally come across. theQoos also gathers album and concert reviews from various lesser known sites/blogs that deserve to be read as well as fan-made content that are meant to entertain and be enjoyed.

In 2018 BTS was the most tweeted about account worldwide and a tweet featuring BTS member J-Hope participating in the #InMyFeelingsChallenge was the Most Liked Tweet worldwide last year with 1.8 million Likes. Since K-Pop thrives on Twitter, we also gather many official and non-official Twitter accounts into our feed.

Users are able to “Save,” “Like,” and “Share” content but also organize the feed based on their favorite artist(s). Artist pages also include discography and links to music videos. theQoos promises this release to be their minimal viable product and has already planned for many features including in-app commenting and a community section so that Users can have “real interaction”.

MISSION STATEMENT:

theQoos is dedicated to encouraging the growth and distribution of, English language, K-Pop content, and to provide this content to fans free of charge. We want to build a bridge between K-Pop fans across the world and the content that exists in the universe. As the fan community continues to grow, we want to create a platform for them to engage with each other in a genuine way. By promoting users to enter their real information into their profiles we believe that real commentary and real interaction will create a positive space for K-Pop.

By learning who our users are and what their interests are in, we will be able to understand this community like no one has before us. Imagine a world in which every English reading K-Pop fan can freely view and share K-Pop content & be part of a community – which they can take with them, everywhere. theQoos: We are your gateway to the K-Pop Universe.

Avoiding Cyber Threats on Facebook: A Guide

Facebook’s reputation has certainly taken a hit in recent years, especially on its main account, Facebook. Scandal after scandal have rocked this company, which is why it is more important than ever before that you, whether you are a business or an individual, work hard to dismantle your account so that your online data cannot be used against you.

Threats on Facebook

There are many threats to Facebook. Knowing these threats is key to avoiding them and to reduce the risk of your more personal accounts, like your bank account or even information that can lead to identity theft are not accessible to thieves online.

Use of Personal Information Against You

Public profiles are not Facebook’s fault. It is up to you to share information publicly or privately. By sharing information publicly, however, you run the risk of breaches. Most notably, a hacker could determine the answers to security questions on your accounts, and then work their way into more important accounts through the back door.

In the past, Facebook was a massive company that seemed completely impenetrable. Today it has been fraught with scandals and become a breeding ground for misinformation. In 2018, over 50 million users’ data was hacked into. The year before the Cambridge Analytica scandal proved that firms could pay their way to access private information and even skew election results. According to the NYTimes, this scandal has possibly even led to the deaths of individuals around the world.

Harassment Online

Cyberstalking and harassment are both very serious issues, especially for those who have public information that makes it easy for the cyberstalker to find you in the real world.

How to Avoid These Cyber Threats

To avoid these cyber threats, you will want to:

Set Up Two-Factor Authentication

Two-factor authentication, though not perfect, can stop a general hack.

Create a Unique Password for Facebook

Create unique passwords for every account so that breaches which involve your password being stolen are isolated.

Delete All Unnecessary Information

Go through your profile and old posts and delete all unnecessary information that can be used to correctly enter security questions.

Audit Your Friends List

If you aren’t actually friends with them, unfriend them. You don’t need strangers accessing your personal information.

Use Facebook’s Privacy Settings

Limit who can see your posts and sensitive information. Only your name and profile photo should be visible to a non-friend.

Remove Listing From Google

There is a setting which will remove your profile from Google and other search engines. Use this feature.

If you get harassment via messages, report, block, and do not engage.

Use Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)

What is EDR? EDR, or Endpoint Detection and Response, is a way to analyze your endpoints. Perfect for companies, this can help ensure that a Facebook login on your server doesn’t inadvertently let hackers into your Cloud account where they can then access your data. With EDR, you will be able to monitor your endpoints and respond to attacks before they become an issue.

You should never use Facebook, as an individual or as a company, without considering the risk and how you can mitigate it. By taking these steps, you can minimize and avoid cyber threats altogether. Continue to audit your accounts and use new security features to reduce the risk associated with putting your data online.
