Facebook was originally invented to connect people and since then has changed the way that businesses operated and the way we communicate. But things aren't always so happy and joyous when it comes to Facebook. Because as much as it enables us to connect with people, the social network also has the power to, well, make us feel a little bad about ourselves. For example, should you notice your friend count looks like it's decreased, this may cause anxiety. More: Scunthorpe Hospital parking...

So, for example, if a pitcher is trying to work on changing the arm angle at which he throws, he would want to wear the Halo Sport in the morning in the 20 minutes or so before beginning his 10 a.m. workout. Even after stretching, the pitchers throwing session would still be within the devices 60-to-90-minute effectiveness window. San Francisco Giants pitcher Tyler Beede And the benefit may not be limited solely to what a player can do on his own, Head says. In fact, the Halo Sport improves learning as well. So players will be more likely to internalize training feedback from coaches if it happens during that time frame. The benefit even extends to getting stronger, Head says. So if a players biggest weakness is, excuse the pun, his strength, he will do well to wear the Halo Sport prior to doing his weight liftingand may even want to wear it for the first 20 minutes of those sessions, Head says.

Take Tesla, for example. It dominated Driver Power last year, not only because its customers rated their cars so highly, but also because it’s pretty good at listening to feedback. • Take the 2017 Driver Power survey NOW before it closes! I’ve been running a Tesla Model S for the past few weeks and one of the many fascinating things about the car is that it regularly gets free, over-the-air updates that makes it better. It’s often Tesla reacting to customer feedback and changing things on customerscars while they sleep! Not every car maker has the ability to update their cars in a flash in the way Tesla does (yet) but Driver Power can inform everything from a new design to the way dealers work – all for the better. On the subject of dealers, this week we run down the top 1,000 in the UK and Ireland as a result of our latest Driver Power/Statista surveyhelping you to find a dealer you can trust near you.

In recent years, the American Dream has seemed anything but secure . But in its halcyon heights, during the economic boom of post-war '50s and '60s, success and happiness were a lot more easily quantifiable. For example, across the United States, ordinary families could signal to the world their status with home ownership and the purchase of a shiny new car. A new monograph, American Dream , revisits this period of victorious prosperity through a carefully curated collection of amateur snapshots. The images reflect the iconography of the American automobile and its position as a central part of the family unit. Courtesy of Les instantanés ordinaires Photography enthusiasts Sylvie Meunier and Patrick Tournebuf, who discovered and assembled the images, were moved by the immediate closeness and intimacy between people and their cars.

The NBA draft lottery is basically hope made manifest. If you're in it, it's because the season you just put together wasn't any good, and you're hoping (there's that word again) an influx of young talent will make you better. The conceptthe feelingof hope is inherently unquantifiable. It's based on something other than facts for the most part. It's a wish . Still, anyone looking at this year's projected lottery participants can see there are varying degrees of rationality attached to each team's hopes. Even if we can't apply a specific measurement, some clubs definitely have more than others. Having Karl-Anthony Towns already achieving stardom, for example, tends to swell the positivity stockpile. Based on present talent, assets and even management, we have enough to rank each lottery team's futurewhich we'll define here as a three-year timeline. For each squad, we'll highlight the main reasons for hope and despair, just to keep things fully in perspective. Begin Slideshow

Sangeetha Sudharshan, a student of gender studies at Australia’s Macquarie University in Australia, told MintPress that September 11 marked a moment in history “where Muslim bodies were going to be targeted by racist and xenophobic vitriol. The hijab presented itself as a site of racialisation, and is particularly distinct as a religious garment that is correctly attributed to women practicing Islam. Aside from the racist xenophobia, Muslim women were then especially vulnerable to misogyny and racism.” Sudharshan mentions Srinivas Kuchibhotla, an Indian man in Kansas who was killed by a white man named Adam Purinton, as one example “of how brown bodies are not just seen as the Other, but are seen as the Muslim Other that purportedly represents a ‘terrorist threat’ to the supposedly civilised West, that has been waging a war in the Middle East for 14 years now.

The Trump Administration cannot halt the revolution that is underway in energy, which is the worlds largest marketplace. Globally, there are now more jobs in renewable energy than in oil, gas and coal combined. If annual installations continue to grow at rates declining from todays, there will still be enough clean power for each of the 9 billion people who will populate the Earth in 2050. Sustaining such high growth rates might be farfetched, because renewable energy is not the most profitable option in every circumstance. (In developed countries, for example, low demand for new energy forces new renewables to compete with existing power plants . ) But the underlying economics are sound. Promising jobs to displaced coal workers and de-funding climate research and the Clean Power Plan will not alter the facts: As the cost of renewables falls, the relative cost of fossil fuels rises.

Since 2010, GKN has more than doubled its test programme at Arjeplog, and that’s common across the industry as manufacturers continue to see the benefits of the landscape when developing vehicle software. As an example, the first models to feature the Twinster system – such as the 2014 Evoquerequired 250,000 lines of computer coding by GKN. Future models will require 2.5 million, which when printed out line-by-line measures 3.2 metres. It’s part of the industry’s move to Autosar, a global standard that’s being introduced for software across all car makers.

When we reach the corner, sufficient speed has been wiped off to enable the driver to confidently turn in before the car accelerates itself back up to the 70km/h limit without the driver’s foot coming anywhere near the throttle. In another example of the predictive capability, the new Distronic system applies braking force while on the entry to towns, ensuring the speed of the car is perfectly matched to the limit right at the appearance of the town sign. What it also does well is easily identify temporary speed limits in construction zones, even on signs that are partly obscured. But while representing a big advance on the former Distronic system, the Active Distance Assist and Active Speed limit Assist systems are not quite perfect. The sign scanning software cannot yet differentiate between varying speed limits where the sign denotes a certain time of day for one limit and then a second time of day for another limit.

With this, the total count of states under UDAY reaches 26, it said. Power Minister Piyush Goyal said,"UDAY is the most comprehensive power sector reform ever planned and executed in the country. It is a classic example of comprehensive, cooperative, collaborative, competitive, consensual and compassionate federalism." "We have a deep focus on monitoring and accountability and are working towards a clear strategy with visionary goals for which the roadmap has been drawn with a view to bring in efficiency in the whole power sector value chain," he added. The reduction in AT&C losses is likely to bring additional revenue of around Rs 92 crore, Rs 279 crore and Rs 554 crore to Kerala, Arunachal Pradesh and Tripura respectively during the period of turnaround. Besides, Kerala is expected to benefit by around Rs 3,600 crore and Tripura around Rs 156 crore due to coal reforms.

On the eve of Brexit, May, 60, has one of the toughest jobs of any recent British prime minister: holding Britain together in the face of renewed Scottish independence demands, while conducting arduous talks with 27 other EU states on finance, trade, security and a host of other complex issues. Future of Britain The outcome of the negotiations will shape the future of Britain's $2.6 trillion economy, the world's fifth biggest, and determine whether London can keep its place as one of the top two global financial centers. For the EU, already reeling from successive crises over debt and refugees, the loss of Britain is the biggest blow yet to 60 years of efforts to forge European unity in the wake of two devastating world wars. Its leaders say they do not want to punish Britain. But with nationalist, anti-EU parties on the rise across the bloc, they cannot afford to give London generous terms that might encourage other member states to follow its example and break away.

Increasingly of late, weve been hearing about how various pieces of hardware can be hacked in improbable sounding ways like your monitor , for example and heres another: your scanner could potentially be compromised via a smart bulb . Yes, you read that correctly. There are caveats here, as you might expect, one of them being that the flatbed scanner has to be left with its lid open, because in this case, its sensitive to changes in the light levels of the surrounding area. And a would-be attacker could exploit that fact and leverage the scanner as a backdoor onto a company network, using something as simple as a smart light bulb which is installed in the same room. This comes from a paper Oops! I Think I Scanned Malware authored by researchers at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and the Weizmann Institute of Science, both of which are in Israel.

Zetsche said that autonomy was a key focus for Mercedes and its sister brands, but he suggested that producing pure driverless cars was not a priority yet. “Autonomous cars restore mobility [to those who lacked it], including elderly people,” he said. “But we’re not going to abolish the steering wheel. We’ll always build cars whose steering wheels you wont want to let go of.” Zetsche said the S-Class served as an example this trend. The model will offer full autonomy on certain road types, but it can still be controlled conventionally in manual mode.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) said about a dozen Somalis have joined militant groups in Syria in recent years and about 22 men have been lured to join al-Shabab in Somalia in incidents dating back to 2007. Most recently, nine Somali-American men were accused of plotting to join Islamic State and sentenced to prison by a Minnesota federal court. The basketball tournament is an example of a program geared toward providing extracurricular activities to fend off some of the negative influences that Somali youth face. Beza Tesfaye, conflict and governance research manager for Mercy Corps, has done research in Somalia, Somaliland and Puntland on why young people join extremist groups. Tesfaye found that, contrary to popular opinion, it is not poverty or unemployment that are the main factors that push Somalis toward extremism groups. Instead, the strongest driving factors are young people who feel their voices are not being heard, that they are unable to participate politically and feel discriminated against based on clan or ethnic group, she said.
