The American Heart Association reports that 116.4 million U.S. adults (46%) alone have hypertension, and it’s estimated that about 800,000 people die of cardiovascular disease complications each year.That makes it the leading cause of death for both men and women — not to mention one of most expensive to treat: The Center for Disease Control and Prevention puts the cost north of $320 billion.Redwood City, California-based Hello Heart hopes to turn things around with a digital wellness program targeted at employees.The capital infusion follows on the heels of a $9 million raise in March 2017, and CEO Maayan Cohen says it’ll enable Hello Heart to scale its sales team in the employers and health plan segments.“Our mission is to empower patients to understand and improve their health, and we’re very proud to be able to help them do it so effectively in heart health,” said Cohen, who cofounded Hello Heart in 2013 with Eran Keisar and Ziv Meltzer.“We’re in an exciting growth phase.”
All 86-year-old Arlene Kaganove wanted was a free bagel from American cafe chain Panera on her birthday.Instead, after signing up for the My Panera rewards programme, Kaganove was sent threatening emails demanding she pay $1,400 (£1,146) worth of bitcoin—in exchange for a supposed recording of her watching porn.“I am always signing up for whatever comes free on my birthday,” Kaganove told local Chicago station NBC 5.According to Kaganove, the extortionists sent her emails saying they had a recording of her watching porn.The reason she connected the dots to Panera was the emails noted the actual username and password she used to sign up for the My Panera account.And because Kaganove, unlike most of us, exercises extremely good security hygiene, she says the username and password were not used for any other account.

When Apple introduced Face ID on the iPhone X in 2017, many other companies were quick to launch their own version of the facial recognition technology.Now, however, it looks like Google will include not only facial recognition in the Pixel 4, but will take it a step further by including gesture-based controls, essentially meaning that you can use the phone without even touching it.Google showed off the tech in a new video posted to Twitter, in which a user can be seen unlocking the phone, then waving her hand to skip through songs on a playlist.This kind of tech could come in handy, for example, when your hands are dirty and you don’t want to touch your phone.Pixel4 Learn more https://t.co/PYY0AFcnyI pic.twitter.com/f9v51VbXWd— Made by Google (@madebygoogle) July 29, 2019
When is a 600Mbps connection not enough?When 700Mbps is available, according to Shenzhen-based phone manufacturer OnePlus, which has today claimed that the 5G connection on its OnePlus 7 Pro 5G handset is faster than rivals Samsung, LG and Oppo.According to the press release, the study was carried out independently by RootMetrics, and saw the company's researchers take a the 7 Pro 5G, along with a Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, as well as the LG V50 5G and Oppo Reno 5G, to various sites across London, and then measured the 5G speeds available.Reportedly, OnePlus's device achieved peak speeds of "nearly" 700Mbps, while Samsung managed only a lacklustre 550Mbps - with LG and Oppo clocking in at around 600Mbps.The test apparently used the speed achieved in the St Paul's area as a baseline, and also factored in speeds in the City, Kensington & Chelsea, Westminster, Covent Garden, Soho and on the South Bank.So why the difference in speeds?

A Russian software developer, currently under American sanctions for its purported role in the Kremlin's interference with the 2016 US elections, is now selling spyware to governments.Researchers at security house Lookout today reported [PDF] that St Petersburg-based Special Technology Centre (STC) is developing and maintaining a commercial spyware tool known as Monokle.STC was among the Russian businesses hit last year with US economic sanctions for their supporting role in the GRU's election-meddling efforts.The Russian tech firm is said to have its hands in a number of fields, including UAVs, radio equipment and, now, surveillance software.Monokle targets Android devices by being added as a hidden payload in seemingly legitimate apps like Google Play or Skype.Most recently, Lookout says, the malware has used the names and icons of apps popular in Syria and the Caucasus regions in an effort to keep an eye on groups in those areas.
Then, by tapping supercomputers, physician-led teams could simulate how tumor cells behave to test millions (or billions) of possible treatment combinations.The therapy, however, helps only 10 to 20 percent of patients -- partly because the way in which cancer cells and immune cells mingle is complex and poorly understood.To begin uncovering the rules of immunotherapy, the team turned to a set of three tools:Agent-based modeling, which predicted the behavior of individual "agents" - cancer and immune cells, in this caseArgonne's award-winning workflow technology to take full advantage of the supercomputersA guiding framework to explore models and dynamically direct and track results

Reconstruction of factories (the construction of modern parks and the removal of communications on racks) significantly prevents the penetration of petroleum products into the ground.However, wastes, accumulated as a result of the activities of oil refineries, continue to have a negative impact on the environment.The method developed at Samara Polytech will allow not only to monitor the state of groundwater, but also to predict the movement dynamics of the lens, on which depends the stability of the grounds under the building structures.- Without knowledge of the geophysical processes, hydrodynamics of groundwater, the regularities of their movement in the layers in this area, it is very difficult to predict the important parameters of the lens, its volume and the qualitative composition of oil products contained in it, - explains Olga Tupitsyna, who is the Project Manager, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor of the Chemical Technology and Industrial Ecology Department, Leading Specialist at the Scientific and Analytical Center for Industrial Ecology.Under her leadership, an interdisciplinary team of scientists and students of Samara Polytech has developed a groundwater research program that allows predicting the direction of lens movement during seasonal changes in water levels in water storages, with active operation of the water intake area, on exposure to the layer from the main production site of the enterprise.The resulting mathematical model will also determine the localization of the sources of concentration of petroleum products, quickly extract them and effectively clean the soil, ground and groundwater.
Speaking at a White House event honoring Apollo 11, Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the Moon, said he's "disappointed" with the progress America's space program has made over the past 50 years."[I'm] disappointed in the progress in the past 50 years," Aldrin said at the event held in the Oval Office."We had a rocket, the Saturn 5.We have the [number one] rocket and spacecraft and they can’t get into lunar orbit.That’s a great disappointment to me."NASA's Administrator Jim Bridenstine, who was also at the event, said the space agency is "working on it."
Instagram said Thursday it's rolling out changes to how it decides what accounts to take down, a sign that the photo-sharing site is getting tougher about removing offensive content that violates its rules.The Facebook-owned company will start removing accounts that rack up a number of violations within a window of time.Currently, Instagram takes down accounts that have a certain percentage of content that violates its rules.An Instagram spokeswoman said it isn't sharing the exact number of violations or time frame because of concerns users will game the system."Similarly to how policies are enforced on Facebook, this change will allow us to enforce our policies more consistently and hold people accountable for what they post on Instagram," the company said in a blog post.The announcement comes during the same week that a man suspected of murdering a 17-year-old girl posted a photo of her bloody body on what appeared to be his Instagram account.

Microsoft was mighty proud of its shift to a “Windows as a Service” strategy almost four years ago.Redmond, however, seems to have swung to the other extreme in its desire to portray a company that can quickly respond to problems and feedback.Now it has to slow down and take stock of its obviously broken update process to ensure that what’s left of Windows 10 credibility won’t go down the drain.But while it sped up the releases, insiders report that everything inside Microsoft remained mostly the same, including the development process.Every update, both the bi-annual major Feature updates down to cumulative patches would bring problems of their own, sometimes totally unrelated from the bugs they fix.This can range from breaking compatibility with some peripherals to, worse, disappearing files.

The Federal Trade Commission and Facebook have reportedly agreed on a $5 billion fine that would settle the FTC's privacy investigation into the social network.With Facebook having reported $15 billion in revenue last quarter, the $5 billion fine would amount to one month's worth of revenue.The FTC voted 3-2 to approve the settlement this week, with three yes votes from Republican commissioners and two no votes from Democrats, The Wall Street Journal reported today, citing anonymous sources.Democrats on the commission were "pushing for tougher oversight," the Journal wrote.Facebook fights to “shield Zuckerberg” from punishment in US privacy probeThe FTC hasn't announced the deal publicly.
Cadillac's supercharged LT4 V8 is a sweetheart, slapping the ever-loving heck out drivers with gobs of horsepower and torque -- and, of course, a raucous engine note to go along with it.And, if one report turns out to be true, it could also appear in something a little bit bigger.Cadillac is working on a muscled-up variant of the next-generation Escalade, Muscle Cars and Trucks reports, citing sources with knowledge of the project.Cadillac did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but automakers routinely decline to discuss products ahead of schedule, and Cadillac has not talked much about its new Escalade yet.While the sources didn't give MC explicit confirmation of the powertrain, they allegedly hinted at the aforementioned LT4, which puts out 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque in its hottest iteration.The V8 in question has lived in only three cars thus far: The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (C7) and the Cadillac CTS-V.
