Growing old and being less mobile is no easy circumstance.Apart from the possible mentally and psychologically problems, the older among our loved ones are afflicted with a host of physical problems.Of particular note are those who are affected by limited mobility in bones and muscles.Here are the top five reasons you want to have one in your home.Independent livingOne of the simplest reasons to get this daily living aid is that it allows our elderly loved ones a degree of independence with day-to-day chores.No longer will they need to call on people if they need to reach a jar that’s higher up.No longer will they need to bend down to pick up an item that they may have dropped.In a sense, it isn’t just a mobility aid for them but is a tool to (re)gain independence at home or in the aged care facility.Preventive measuresEven if your older parents aren’t too far ahead when it comes to their ability to reach for things, you would do well to help prevent them from reaching that point.
Not many films get a sequel 33 years after their original.But then, not many movies are Top Gun: Maverick, the sequel to the 1986 Tom Cruise action film.Maverick was one of Tom Cruise's iconic, gleaming-teeth, sunglasses, action-star roles.Though he's now 57, Cruise hasn't exactly slowed down on the action-movie front, as his Mission: Impossible and Jack Reacher roles have shown.In this film, Cruise's Maverick is now a flight instructor who mentors Bradley "Rooster" Bradshaw (played by Miles Teller), the son of his late friend Goose from the first film.Jerry Bruckheimer and Don Simpson produced the original Top Gun, with Tony Scott (brother of Ridley) directing.

The adaptation of It is proving to be a box office juggernaut, while the poor debut for American Made might signal the waning appeal of Tom Cruise.It appears that Pennywise the Clown wasn’t done wearing weekend box-office crown yet.Although the final tally of ticket sales has yet to be confirmed, industry estimates indicate that It won the weekend with a $17.3 million haul from U.S. theaters, beating the new Tom Cruise film American Made and last week’s winner, Kingsman: The Golden Circle.The weekend ticket sales for It also pushed it past yet another milestone in its record-breaking run.The film — which is actually the first half of a two-part saga — is now in fourth place on the list of the highest-grossing “R”-rated movies of all time, having passed The Matrix Reloaded over the weekend.Although the second-week haul for Kingsman is respectable, the results aren’t so positive for American Made, which gave Cruise his lowest opening weekend since 2012’s Jack Reacher despite earning positive reviews from professional critics and general audiences.

A big reason for this is technology, which has evolved so dramatically that even that bane of 9-to-5 existence, can be distributed and measured remotely.Miniature documentaries from the first four writers went live today.Half of us wouldn’t be able to eat if online writing, editing, publishing and even programmatic ad delivery didn’t exist.The creator of the Jack Reacher novels explains how to deliver suspense in the haven of his home office, plagued by a mysterious knocking.Its about withholding information,” Child says bluntly.“You ask a question in the beginning, or imply it, and you do not answer it until the end.

With the growth of social media as a means to stay connected with the experiences and opinions of friends and family members, interest in employee advocacy has also been on the rise.The logic behind this is fairly simple - in the past, you'd have access to the opinions of only a few friends and relatives at any given time, but now, through the always-connected nature of social, you're exposed to even more insights from the people whose opinions you care about, which gives each person more power in spreading the word about products and services.Combine that with declining reach for branded content, and it makes sense for businesses to be putting more effort into understanding the dynamics of employee advocacy, and how they can use it to advantage.So how, exactly, can you use it to advantage?This new infographic from Social Reacher provides an overview of the how and why of social advocacy, with key stats and tips to get you thinking.
The notion that attackers could remotely hack your ride, make it stop short, or even drive you into traffic.When Thomas Kilbride got a Segway MiniPro, its paired mobile app piqued his interest; by day, Kilbride works as an embedded device security consultant at IOActive.You can use it to remote control your scooter or shut it off when no one's on it, and you could even use its social GPS tracking feature to show all Segway MiniPros in an area in real-time.But when Kilbride investigated the security behind those features, he found vulnerabilities that an attacker could exploit to bypass the hoverboard's safety protections from afar, and take control of the device."I was surprised that the exploits were as accessible as they were.In addition to the features mentioned above, it can also change device settings and accept firmware updates to the scooter for tweaks and improvements.
It was a magical weekend for Marvel s Doctor Strange, which easily earned the top spot at the box office with a higher-than-expected opening weekend.The introduction of Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch as surgeon-turned-sorcerer Stephen Strange raked in an impressive $84.9 million in U.S. theaters, extending Marvel s streak of opening weekend winners and pushing Disney past the $6 billion mark for the year — a feat achieved by only one other studio in Hollywood history.While it was an exceptionally good weekend for Doctor Strange, all three of this week s major new releases enjoyed respectable debuts — both critically and commercially.As far as Marvel movies go, the opening weekend for Doctor Strange was the tenth best debut of the 14 films in the studio s cinematic universe, ranking above the premieres of The Incredible Hulk, Ant-Man, Captain America: The First Avenger, and Thor.The film also fared well critically, earning a 90 percent Fresh rating on professional review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes and an A rating on audience-based review aggregator CinemaScore.Jack Reacher: Never Go Back
In this July 23, 2013 file photo, then-New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner speaks during a news conference alongside his wife Huma Abedin in New YorkI ve never got on that well with Siri, the computerised personal assistant lurking on my iPhone.I find her voice aggravating and unnecessarily superior: Penelope Keith by way of a female cyborg.Plus, there was that time she misheard chimera as cinema and replied to my profound question about Greek mythology with a series of viewing times for Jack Reacher at the Holloway Odeon.It was reported this week that an estimated five per cent of interactions with these so-called virtual assistants are now sexual in tone.This is not quite what anyone had in mind, but might be enough to win her the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2020 if the current trend is anything to go by.
After knocking off Tom Cruise and his Jack Reacher sequel last week, A Madea Halloween took aim at Tom Hanks and Inferno over the weekend and managed to come away with a win at the box office.Tyler Perry s seventh installment of his Madea series earned $16.6 million in its second week in theaters, topping the debut of Hanks and director Ron Howard s Inferno, the third film in the Robert Langdon series, which earned a mere $15 million — well below box-office pundits predictions.A Madea Halloween is on pace to become the third or fourth highest-grossing film in writer-director Perry s franchise at this point, even if it takes the expected dip in the coming weeks as the big fall movies begin arriving in theaters.Despite its underwhelming debut in U.S. theaters, Inferno isn t exactly in danger of falling into flop territory — not when you take into account its worldwide ticket sales.The third film in the trilogy that began with 2006 s The Da Vinci Code has already earned more than $132 million internationally due to an early premiere in Europe where most of the film is set and other regions, earning well beyond its $75 million production costs and giving the studio a silver lining of sorts to compensate for its domestic box-office disappointment.Jack Reacher: Never Go Back
A Madea Halloween, the seventh installment of the wildly successful film series that he created, directs, and stars in as the eponymous Madea.The comedy took the top spot at the box office over the weekend with a $27.6 million debut — the third-best opening weekend for the series so far — beating a trio of new releases that includes Tom Cruise s action sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.Over the course of seven films, Perry s Madea series has been one of the more successful comedy franchises of the modern era, with the films collectively raking in $403.5 million domestically for an average of $57.6 million per film.Given that most of the films have cost less than $10 million to make, it s no surprise that Perry — and studio Lionsgate — is willing to keep churning them out.Jack Reacher: Never Go BackMiss Peregrine s Home for Peculiar Children

Tom Cruise, the guy known for running in lots of movies — and other stuff, I m sure — now has his own online mini-game to do just that: run.The running gag about Cruise running in movies has led to memes, video compilations and dozens perhaps hundreds of GIFs on the subject.It even led to a change in his Twitter bio as a sort of acknowledgement to the joke.Cruise s new movie, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is now getting in on the fun as well.Today, a tiny 8-bit endless runner popped up to promo the sequel to 2012 s Jack Reacher.The original film featured a rather confident Reacher that seemed hell-bent on baiting people into hitting him in the face.
Netflix has picked up an ensemble comedy called Friends From College that will star Keegan-Michael Key, Cobie Smulders, and Fred Savage, Variety reports.The show follows a group of friends who all graduated from Harvard at the same time.Now in their 40s, they ve each reached differing levels of success since their time together at the prestigious educational institution.Stoller, who is currently working on the TV series The Carmichael Show, most notably directed the 2008 film Forgetting Sarah Marshall.Considering both he and Delbanco attended Harvard themselves, there may be some grains of truth in the story, or at least some inspiration for episodes based on their own real-life experiences.Indeed, Stoller and Delbanco will both be executive producing and writing the series.
Robots demolished a power station in the U.K. this week, but don t worry, it wasn t Skynet becoming self aware.The whole thing was planned, by humans.While robots aren t usually relied upon for demolition work, in this case the site had been deemed too hazardous for humans after four workers were tragically killed when one of the buildings partially collapsed.In the aftermath, a 160-foot exclusion zone was set up, with no people allowed to enter the site.As a result, a plan was put in place to use robots for the task — ranging from a smaller robot weighing in the region of 88 pounds to super-heavy machines weighing 4 tons.For the first part of the work, two robots made by the Irish company Reamda, referred to as the Robot Reacher and R-Evolve, surveyed the site.
