Many people remain diligent about protecting their health during the week, making sure to exercise daily and eat healthy foods, only to spend the weekend relaxing and eating what they crave.That can be risky, according to a new study, if the indulgences include eating a bunch of sugar-filled junk foods.Researchers with the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry found that it only takes a couple of days of binging on sugar to potentially trigger severe inflammatory bowel disease symptoms.Inflammatory bowel disease, more commonly called IBD, generally refers to one of two diseases: Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease, both of which involve inflammation in the digestive tract.Both conditions are difficult to manage and can be severe, disrupting one’s life and potentially causing long-term health issues.Diet is believed to play a major role in the severity of the diseases, though diet modification has better results for some people than others.

Accessory maker TwelveSouth has a solid lineup of gadgets, many of which fill a niche that their products uniquely address — and address remarkably well.The AirFly Pro ($54.99) is a new iteration on one of those, providing a way to connect Bluetooth headphones to any audio source with a 3.5mm headphone jack.It’s being sold at Apple Stores, too, as part of its launch today — and there’s good reason for that: This is the ideal way to make sure you can use your AirPods Pro just about everywhere, including with airplane seatback entertainment systems.The AirFly Pro will work with any Bluetooth headphones, not just AirPods Pro — but the latest noise-canceling earbuds from Apple are among the best available when it comes to both active noise cancellation and sound quality, both great assets for frequent travelers and people more likely to encounter an in-flight entertainment system.But the AirFly Pro has additional tricks up its sleeve that earn it the “Pro” designation.This is the first version of the product from TwelveSouth that offers the ability to stream audio in, as well as out.

The reason we all have such passionate opinions about reboots is that for every critical and financial flop like Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four or Alex Kurtzman’s The Mummy, there are extremely-okay movies like Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class and Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ Kong: Skull Island that made impressive amounts of money and kicked off new eras for their studios’ respective franchises.But over the past decade, there have been instances where even franchises that were “successfully” rebooted only really led to a quick recycling of the same old tale before the studio decided to do the whole shebang over again simply because it could.A remake is exactly what it sounds like: a recreation of an older film that more or less cleaves to the narrative beats of the source material.Unlike remakes, reboots have the unenviable task of having to take stories that most of us are already familiar enough with and bringing something new to the property that justifies its existence.Marcus Nispel’s Conan the Barbarian, like Joe Carnahan’s A-Team, failed to make much of an impact in large part because even though both of those properties have established fanbases, neither of their stories managed to capture audiences’ imaginations or made them feel as if the movies were doing the source material justice.With cases like Spider-Man, the reasoning behind the repeated attempts at breathing new life in the property is clear: people love Peter Parker.

It was a few weeks before the 2016 election, and I was putting together a report on the future of online political discourse.We had canvassed thousands of the world's leading experts in technology and culture, and had begun the long task of interpreting the more than 700 responses to the final question in our survey:In the next decade, will public discourse online become more or less shaped by bad actors, harassment, trolls, and an overall tone of griping, distrust, and disgust?Despite having studied this space for years, I read agape.It wasn't that the predictions for the coming decade were, as I'd expected, pessimistic.It was their excruciatingly candid, matter-of-fact dystopianism that left the impression.

Google employees on Monday called on company management to take action against climate change.More than 1,000 workers signed an open letter to Ruth Porat, Google's chief financial officer, demanding the search giant to release a plan addressing carbon emissions and political lobbying.Specifically, the letter demands a commitment from Google to zero emissions by 2030, as well as no contracts that "enable or accelerate the extraction of fossil fuels."The employees also called on the company to ban funding to climate-denying or climate-delaying think tanks, lobbyists or politicians.Additionally, they want the company to vow not to collaborate with groups that harm refugees or other groups affected on the "frontline" of climate change."Google is a global company with billions of users across the world, many of whom are already bearing the brunt of climate disaster," the letter says.

Microsoft is rolling out an all-new version of its project management software known as Microsoft Project as the company sets out to better equip teams to “collaborate on projects more efficiently.”Microsoft Project doesn’t garner the same attention as the myriad other business-focused tools in the Microsoft Office family of products, but it was actually one of the first apps available when Windows launched back in the 1980s.Much has changed over the years, of course, and the cloud now plays a pivotal part in Project’s appeal, with every member of a team able to have the same view of a project at the same time.Last September, Microsoft announced plans for a new version of Microsoft Project, and in the intervening months it has rolled out iterations of the various features, though they may not have been visible for everyone.From this month, however, the features are being pushed into general availability, meaning the new Microsoft Project will soon be live for everyone around the world.The broader Project interface has also been redesigned to make it easier to create new tasks, add new members, and switch between grids, boards, and timeline charts.

Svensk industri investerar cirka 55 miljarder i underhåll för att säkerställa att driftsäkerheten upprätthålls.I och med att industrin blir allt mer digitaliserad och uppkopplad så finns det i nuläget en mängd lösningar för smart produktion och smart underhåll.Företag som satsar på rätt utrustning och rätt kompetens har stora möjligheter att öka lönsamheten genom att sätta in underhåll där det behövs som bäst och framförallt när det behövs.- Underhåll måste ses som en investering som skapar värde i form av ökad lönsamhet, produktivitet, kvalitet och hållbarhet.Underhållet är inte längre en avdelning utan en funktion som ska genomsyra hela verksamheten, säger Torsten Ekström, VD Svenskt Underhåll AB.Jämför man till exempel gruvnäringen med fordons- eller pappersindustrin så finns det ofta liknande utmaningar och ett stort behov av erfarenhetsutbyte.

Microsoft and Amazon had been competing for this key Pentagon contract for over a year.An Amazon Web Services spokesperson says the company is "surprised about this conclusion."This deal, called the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) contract, is a 10-year contract to help the Department of Defense move its sensitive data to the cloud.Companies like IBM and Oracle also competed for the contract since the bidding process opened up in July.Trump had demanded more information about JEDI after hearing about complaints on the bidding process, and he promised to look into the deal after receiving letters on the matter from lawmakers, including Sen. Marco Rubio.In August, the deal award was delayed for furthe review, reportedly because the White House was concerned that Amazon would win.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology may have developed a new weapon in the fight against climate change.Researchers have created a new system for removing carbon dioxide from a stream of air that can work at almost any concentration level, from power plant emissions to open air, according to MIT News.In addition, MIT said the new system requires less energy and money to operate.The device at the heart of the system is like a large battery that absorbs carbon dioxide from the air and passes over its electrodes as it's being charged up.The battery then releases the gas when it's discharged.The system's inner workings are detailed further by the researchers -- MIT postdoc Sahag Voskian and T. Alan Hatton, the Ralph Landau Professor of Chemical Engineering -- in a paper called Faradaic Electro-swing Reactive Adsorption for CO2 Capture, published in the journal Energy and Environmental Science.

Facebook announced it’s rolling out a standalone news tab in its mobile app today in an effort to highlight the journalism from hundreds of news publishers—and paying those that take part.Facebook News, as the initiative is called, is debuting to a subset of the company’s U.S. audience.It’s a move that will highlight the work of roughly 200 news outlets, including national outlets like The New York Times and Dow Jones, along with smaller, state-specific papers, like The Chicago Tribune.It’s also a move that signifies the tech giant stepping squarely into the news delivery role that it’s historically shirked in the past.The company’s been caught not only de-emphasizing hard news as a part of its flagship feed, but have also scrimped on revenue and insights publishers could earn through other news-related offerings like Instant Articles, which hoovered news content and revenue directly from publishers’ sites.“Journalism plays a critical role in our democracy,” the company said in a statement announcing the debut.

With so many platforms available to creatives, advertisers are more than ever relying on a competitive metric ecosystem to measure and monetize their audiences.At Adweek’s Convergent TV Summit on Oct. 22 in New York, streaming editor Kelsey Sutton sat down with representatives of Nielsen, Inscape and Dentsu to talk television’s “brave new world.”Jodie McAfee, Inscape’s svp, sales and marketing, predicted that as measurement tools advance, different metrics will evolve to help buyers and sellers.“Nielsen’s never going away,” he said.“But the point is that there are going to be different flavors of currency, because what currency comes down to is a buyer and a seller willing to trade on a particular metric.And so I think what you’re going to end up seeing are, you know, pharma companies may trade on a different flavor of whatever that currency is, financial companies may trade on a different flavor.

Department store chain John Lewis is not the place to buy your consumer-level drone this year, for one rather large reason; it's stopped selling them altogether.The chain says sales of drones have been falling amid buyer confusion about new licensing regimes and boring flight restrictions stopping you doing anything more exciting than buzzing the washing line in the back garden between the hours of 13:00 and 15:50, plus it's a little worried about the rise in anti-social flying, as popularised by the great Gatwick no-fly crisis of late 2018.If someone does succeed in taking out a Dreamliner with one and police discover the receipt for it says "John Lewis" it would be quite the PR disaster for the brand name.A spokesperson the for chain explained all of that in a much more sensible way, saying: "Following the Gatwick drone security breach in December 2018, we made the decision to stop selling drones at John Lewis & Partners this year.Sales were also in decline due to the growing number of restrictions around flying these devices in built-up areas across the country."

Options beyond the public cloud…Spending £100 million an hour, or £28,000 each second, is an immense responsibility for the public sector.From identifying roads to be upgraded in order to ease congestion, to establishing community programmes designed to reduce crime in problem areas, these decisions must be made based on thorough data analysis.As a result, the public sector has leveraged the flexibility and scalability of public cloud solutions in the last few years to efficiently and reliably manage the processing power needed to crunch the numbers.However, there are certain types of data which are deemed simply too sensitive to be stored in public cloud environments, such as that relating to matters of national security or data which is marked ‘Sensitive’ or ‘Official Sensitive’.It means the data in the public cloud can potentially be subject to several different jurisdictions and regulatory environments too.

“I imagine they were ready to restore from the back-up and clearly they did so rapidly”One of France’s largest privately-owned media groups, M6, has survived an apparent ransomware attack relatively unscathed – managing to keep its TV and radio broadcasts running with no down-time, despite servers being hit.In a post on Twitter the M6 Group said it has been the subject of a ‘malicious computer attack’ that sought to bring its systems down.The attack has widely been reported to be a ransomware attack, although M6 has not confirmed this.M6 praised the “quick and efficient intervention of our cybersecurity experts” for its ability to keep operating during the attack.In a further post it says that: “All the Group’s teams are mobilized to restore the proper functioning of all our equipment and IT resources.”
