FCC moots automatic spam blocks

first_imgHome FCC moots automatic spam blocks Related Canada targets app providers over spam concerns US operators could soon have more leeway to fight spam calls, as the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) proposed new rules which would allow them to block such traffic by default.Many operators already offer call blocking services on an opt-in basis, but the rule would allow them to provide automatic filtering with a consumer opt-out clause.Under the proposal, such programmes would be allowed to operate “based on any reasonable analytics designed to identify unwanted calls” and either block a call altogether or dispose of them in other ways, for instance by sending them straight to voicemail. It would also give the green light for so-called white list filtering, allowing operators to block calls from numbers not on a consumer’s contact list.The FCC noted many operators have held off creating such tools due to questions surrounding their legality under current rules. However, Chairman Ajit Pai said in a statement the move will “give voice service providers the legal certainty they need to block unwanted calls from the outset so that consumers never have to get them”.While Pai called on operators to offer such call blocking services for free, the proposal contains no mandate that they do so.Despite attempts to tackle the issue, spam calls continue to represent a significant nuisance for US consumers. Data from caller ID service Hiya showed there were 26.3 billion robocalls made to US mobile phones in 2018.The FCC will vote on the proposal at a meeting on 6 June.

Beth Underhill Wins $100,000 CSI2* Classic

first_img SIGN UP Canadian Olympian Beth Underhill of Schomberg, ON, won the $100,000 CSI2* Classic to close out the second annual CSI2* Ottawa International Horse Show on Sunday, July 24, in Ottawa, ON.In a thrilling conclusion to two weeks of world-class show jumping competition at Wesley Clover Parks, Underhill topped a 19-horse starting field in dramatic fashion to claim victory in the $100,000 CSI2* Classic. The packed crowd was treated to a spectacular day of sport, as 15 riders were clear over the first round track set by 2016 Rio Olympic course designer Guilherme Jorge, setting the stage for a jump-off where speed became the name of the game.As the fifth of 15 riders to return for the jump-off, Underhill laid it on the line riding the aptly named Count Me In, jumping clear in a time of 38.42 seconds to move to the top of the leaderboard. There were still 10 challengers to follow but, try as they might, none threatened Underhill’s time. Finland’s Nina Fagerstrom and Flower, the winners of Friday’s $35,000 CSI2* Brookstreet Hotel Open Welcome, finished second, having stopped the clock in 38.67 seconds before Underhill took to the expansive grass grand prix field.Jonathon Millar of Perth, ON, qualified two mounts for the jump-off, placing third riding Daveau and fourth with Bonzay with times of 40.47 seconds and 40.72 seconds respectively. Quincy Hayes of Aurora, ON, rounded out the top five with a time of 41.33 seconds riding Calgary 56, owned by her mother, Darcy Hayes.“I was fortunate that Nina Fagerstrom, who is extremely fast, went ahead of me, and I had the opportunity to watch her,” said Underhill, who represented Canada at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games with the great Monopoly. “When I watched her I thought, ‘I don’t even know if that’s beatable’. She really laid it down. There was not really anywhere that I was thinking I could shave off a corner or leave out a stride. She did everything by the book. So I knew I just needed to go in there and hope my horse could be a little bit quicker. I just caught her by the blink of an eye. It was that fast.“It was a really exciting jump-off for the crowd,” continued Underhill, who picked up the winner’s share of $25,000 in prize money. “It went quickly, and there was a lot of action.”Underhill has had the ride on her winning mount, Count Me In, for three years. Now nine, the Hanoverian gelding (Count Grannus x Sherlock Holmes) owned by Sandy Lupton and Robb Caswell has come into his own in the past six months.“He started as a very green, inexperienced horse,” said Underhill of Count Me In. “He was always very careful and had a super attitude, but he was always a little bit feisty and a real competitor. It was just a matter of managing his skills so that he stayed a little bit more focused on the job. In the past six months, he’s really put everything together and has just been a wonderfully competitive horse for me.“He’s naturally a very fast horse across the ground, so I knew I had a good shot in the jump-off if we left the jumps up,” continued Underhill. “I think he was rub-free the entire day, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with his progress this past year. I’m just so thrilled to have him to ride.”Underhill’s victory in Sunday’s $100,000 CSI2* Classic marked the grand finale of the Ottawa International Horse Show. This is the second year that the event was managed by the Wesley Clover Parks organizing committee, led by Karen Sparks. The show jumping tournament has seen many incarnations over the years, and both the equestrian and the local communities are thrilled to have world-class show jumping competition back in the heart of the Nation’s Capital.“I was here at the very beginning,” said Underhill, 53. “We used to have our Olympic team selection trials here back in the day. We used to compete here, and it was on our tour every summer. It was really sad for all of us when the show kind of fell by the wayside. We were all really excited to see Karen Sparks and her whole team put it back together and back on the map as it should be. All of the riders enjoyed their two weeks here. The horses jumped great here, and they had great course designers in Guilherme and Michel Vaillancourt last week. It doesn’t get any better. This is modern show jumping, and we’re glad that it’s back.”To learn more, visit www.ottawaequestriantournaments.com.$100,000 CSI2* Jumper Classic – Sunday, July 24Rider/Hometown/Horse/Faults/Time1.

Price comparison of Orlando’s water parks

first_imgShare This!Summer is coming and this year will be unlike any previous year in Orlando because Universal Orlando’s Volcano Bay erupts onto the scene. It’s hard not to call Volcano Bay a water park, because well, that’s what it is, but it is indeed so much more. It is said to have technology and features unlike anything we’ve seen before, especially in Orlando. Still, chances are as you think about planning your Orlando vacation, you’re thinking about Volcano Bay as if it is a water park. Most likely you are trying to decide how to spend the time you’ve allocated for a water park and debating between Volcano Bay, Disney’s water parks, Aquatica, or even Discovery Cove.Price comparison of Orlando’s water parksWithout diving too deep into the strenuous detail between all of Orlando’s water parks, let’s take a look at this price comparison.Prices below do not include tax, prices are as of 2/17/2017 Multi day regular theme parks plus water park(park to park / park hopper)4 days$324.99 adult($81.24 per day)$314.99 child($78.75 per day) $440 adult($110 per day)$420 child($105 per day) Multi day regular theme parks plus water parks(one park per day)3 days $259.99 adult($86.66 per day)$249.99 child($83.33 per day) water parks are not available without Park Hopper option You can view the current Volcano Bay ticket prices on the Universal Orlando Volcano Bay ticket page.Other options to consider are SeaWorld’s Aquatica, and the best value in all of Orlando in my opinion, SeaWorld’s Discovery Cove.SeaWorld’s AquaticaAquatica actually has some similarities to Volcano Bay in theming as well as ride types. Most of the water slides are covered at both parks. They are both tropical themed. Aquatica may not have the Tapu Tapu wristband technology of Volcano Bay, they do have a wristband payment system so you can keep your form of payment secured and dry in a locker. Aquatica’s tickets are priced for anyone three years of age or older. There is a $10 price difference when purchased online in advance versus at the gate.Aquatica pricing, does not include tax Multi-day 2 park ticket is valid for a total of two (2) visits at any of the following parks: SeaWorld Orlando, Aquatica Orlando, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, and Adventure Island Tampa Bay. Both visits can be used at the same park, or at any two different parks listed above.You can also purchase a three day multi-park ticket Valid for a total of three (3) visits at any of the following parks: SeaWorld Orlando, Aquatica Orlando, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, and Adventure Island Tampa Bay. All three visits can be used at the same park, or at any three different parks listed above. This is only $10 more than the two days. $140 at the gate or $119.99 advance online purchase.So essentially with the 3 day multi-park ticket if you purchase in advance online it is just about $40 per day. That’s the lowest price compared to Universal and Disney. Yes, SeaWorld’s parks are a different experience than Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando, but if your focus is your budget and getting this most value for your vacation dollar, you may want to consider the SeaWorld parks. Additionally, when you compare Universal’s park to park tickets to Disney’s park hopper tickets, you can see Universal is priced lower. However, keep in mind that Universal is two theme parks and a water theme park whereas Disney has four theme parks and two water parks.But, wait, there’s more…Discovery CoveBy far the best overall value for an aquatic experience in Orlando is Discovery Cove. This place is paradise. Only 1,000 guests are allowed reservations each day. Everything is included: food, beer, wine, and snorkel gear. The Dolphin experience is an up-charge; I’ve often recommended guests skip this experience and just enjoy everything else Discovery Cove offers.Each admission to Discovery Cove includes unlimited admission to SeaWorld and Aquatica, SeaWorld’s Waterpark in Orlando for 14 consecutive days around the date of your reservation.Prices for Discovery Cove including a Dolphin Swim range from $259 – $399 (based of peak vs. non-peak days) whereas without the Dolphin Swim it ranges from $179 – $249. So to recap, you can get a glorious day of swimming, snorkeling, and lying on the beach with all your food and drinks included plus 14 days at SeaWorld and Aquatica for $179 – $249. I’d say that’s an incredible value!Orlando’s waters parks are a great way to relax and enjoy the sunshine state of mind. The current pricing structure sets Volcano Bay apart from the rest, and that is completely intentional. Volcano Bay is not just a water park, it is billed as a water theme park and there do appear to be amenities and features that make it as such. It is clear that Universal Orlando wants the first guests to enjoy Volcano Bay to be guests spending 3 days of more with them, and if not then day guests will most likely pay a pretty penny.As more information about Volcano Bay becomes available we will be sure to provide updates. Stay tuned to our blog, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest pages for coverage of all the exciting things happening this summer.  Single daySingle day tickets are not officially available as of yet, but can be purchased only as part of a vacation package through select travel booking services. Several sources indicate $124 as the price per person. $62.00 adult$56.00 childcenter_img  $58.99 ages 3+ at gate$48.99 advance purchase online$130 at the gate$109.99 advance online purchase Single dayMulti-day 2 park Multi day regular theme parks plus water parks(park to park / park hopper)3 days  $314.99 adult($105 per day)$304.99 child($102 per day) $364 adult($121.33 per day)$346 child($115.33 per day) Ticket typeVolcano BayDisney Water Parkslast_img read more

Putting

first_img17 August 2004A businessman from the Western Cape is set to take a traditional South African meal, pap and vleis, to the mass market – in a can. And it may help Africa’s hungry, nogal.Pap (a kind of mashed potato made from mealie meal), which is both nutritious and affordable, and vleis (Afrikaans for “meat”) have been the staple diet for millions of South Africans for years.As traditional as rugby, sunny skies and Chevrolet, pap and vleis is also an integral part of the country’s ubiquitous braai (barbecue) culture.Now Western Cape entrepreneur Willem Steenkamp has found a way to put it in a can, and the world – especially other African countries – are sitting up and taking note.Steenkamp says one of the problems was figuring out how to keep the pap fresh – it gets sour after a few hours. According to Standards South Africa (stanSA), products with meat content have to be sterilised and have a shelf life of at least three years.“Pap alone is not a problem and does not need a long, intensive sterilisation process, but things get more complicated when meat is added, as it is more likely to contain hazardous bacteria”, Steenkamp said in a recent interview in Business Day’s trade supplement, The South African Exporter.To satisfy stanSA, the meat content had to be 40%, but Steenkamp battled the body down to 10% after market research showed there was demand for less meat.Steenkamp says even the machinery to put pap in a tin on the production line didn’t exist. And that was only half the problem.“The label is a problem all of its own, as it has to carry all the info that the health department and [stanSA] want on its nutritional information and ingredients as determined by an accredited laboratory, the recommended daily allowance and serving suggestions”, Steenkamp told The South African Exporter.Heating instructions also have to be “in an understandable sign form for those who can’t read”.Steenkamp says he expects success with his unique product in both the local and export market – and that his product could even go some way towards solving food shortages on the continent. “With this traditional African cuisine one can feed the hungry”, he said.He says there has been a lot of interest in his product from African governments, donor feeding schemes, and even mines. After samples were showcased in Japan, Steenkamp says prominent figures in government throughout Africa have contacted him.Steenkamp has negotiated a deal with Bull Brand, the established canned meat company, to manage the local marketing of the product, using their own label under patent-holder licence.The local retail market received the first tins in April and, according to Bull Brand, there is demand. “The chain stores indicated that they are very positive”, Steenkamp said.Some typically South African words and phrases used in this piece: Nogal – too, as well.Pap – a kind of mashed potato made from mealie meal (literally “porridge”).Vleis – Afrikaans for meat.“Rugby, sunny skies and Chevrolet” – lines from a 1970s radio advert for Chevrolet denoting things truly South Africa. The complete phrase was “braaivleis, rugby, sunny skies and Chevrolet”.Braai – barbeque.South African cuisine – a glossary of termsSouthAfrica.info reporterlast_img read more

Study: Location-Based Services Users are Passionate but Niche

first_imgTags:#mobile The new survey also found that the use of location-based services is increasing within its user base, with 74% saying they’ve been using the apps more often than before, while 27% said they’ve been decreasing their use. Nearly half (47%) of respondents say they use two-five location-based social networks, 45% say they use just one and only 8% say they use six or more. Who Uses Location-Based Social Networks? Those Who Don’t Care About PrivacyAnother interesting insight the data reveals is that the current users of location-based social networking services aren’t overly concerned with their privacy, it seems. A whopping 77% of the users reported that they check in the most often from their own home. Work, restaurants, the gym and events trailed with 16%, 3%, 2% and 2% respectively as other popular check-in venues. sarah perez Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Myxer surveyed over 1,500 users in the U.S. and found that only 11% of the respondents used these location-based mobile applications. While that figure seems low, it’s actually several points higher than analyst firm Forrester Research’s report from July, which claimed that only 4% of U.S. adults used apps like these. Forrester also claimed that only 1% of those who use location-based apps do so more than once per week. Myxer, however, found heavier usage: 31% of those surveyed claimed they check in a couple of times per week, 30% check in once per day, 26% check in every hour (who are these people, we wonder?) and 13% said they check in just a couple of times per month. Related Posts A new report released today from mobile media provider Myxer examines the current trends among check-in applications, that is, the particular group of location-based mobile social networks that allow users to announce their arrival at a specific venue in return for rewards, coupons, deals or other offers. The company found that among the top mobile check-in applications, there was a clear leader: Booyah’s MyTown, a location-based game built around your own city’s local shops and businesses. MyTown is heavily favored by consumers, attracting 56% of the mobile audience that uses location-based applications such as these. Loopt was in second place, with 12% of users and Gowalla and Foursquare lagged even further behind, at only 8% each. However, only 11% of mobile users are participating in the location-based social networking community, with the majority of mobile users claiming they’re simply “not interested” in these types services. Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces The users of these services are also surprisingly social, especially given the concerns over cyber-stalking that these networks could contribute to. In fact, 59% said that they have more friends on their location-based networks than on their traditional social networks like Facebook and Twitter; 41% said they have less. They also said their primary reasons for using the apps is to share their location with their friends (58%) and to find out where their friends are located (42%). As for the demographic make up of the users, the largest group (30%) is 35-54 and the second largest group (22%) is 25-24, which seems to imply these networks are skewing older than Twitter and Facebook. Perhaps this is because using check-in services require users to move about around the city, a freedom that tweens and teens don’t often have to the same degree. Only 19% of location-based apps users are teens (13-17) and 22% are young adults (18-24). And those aged 55 and up make up 7% of users, according to the data collected. Who Doesn’t Use Location-Based Networks and Why?As for the large majority of mobile users – the 89% who say they don’t use check-in services at all – privacy, surprisingly, isn’t the top concern regarding their non-use of these services. Instead, 23% of users say they are unable to participate because their phone doesn’t have the ability to use location-based apps, which often exist solely as mobile applications on smartphones.The larger majority (56%) say they’re simply “not interested.” That engagement hurdle is what makers of location-based applications and games are now working to overcome. By providing more rewards, coupons, discounts and deals while also offering spirited and fun gameplay, some of those 56% may eventually change their minds. As we’ve noted earlier, rewards are the key to location-based application success. What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologylast_img read more

Cabinet Approves Additional $111M to Continue Dengue Eradication

first_imgHealth Minister, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, says Cabinet has approved an additional $111 million to continue the Ministry’s dengue eradication programme across the island. Speaking to journalists in Black River, St. Elizabeth, on Friday (Nov. 9), following a tour of health institutions in the parish, Dr. Ferguson informed that Cabinet has taken a decision to approve the sum which will be spent “between now and the 31st of January (2013)”, to “ramp up” the response mechanism to the dengue outbreak. “The focus of that sum will be on destruction of breeding sites, fogging, and public education. I beg of residents and the people of Jamaica, to play your role in fighting this outbreak. It requires of you to ensure that around your households, backyards-where we have tyres, containers and other things that could contain water, that we give special attention to that,” the Minister said. He pointed out that Ministry officials have placed much effort and focus on areas along the island’s South Coast, to deal with any eventualities which could arise consequent on the spread of mosquito-borne diseases from persons travelling from the Americas. He urged persons who suspect that they have contracted dengue, to refrain from using certain types of medication. “Stay away from some specific types of anti- inflammatory medication that could worsen their situations. Stay more on paracetamol,” the Minister advised. Speaking at last week’s Jamaica House media briefing, Director of Emergency Disaster Management and Special Services in the Ministry, Dr. Marion Bullock Ducasse reported a reduction in new cases of dengue. “We have looked at our cases and up to the week ending October 27, we are reporting 2,448 clinically suspected dengue cases of which 404 were laboratory confirmed. We are watching these figures very closely, because for that week…we only had reports of 250 new clinically suspected cases. The week prior to that, it was at 488,” she informed.last_img read more
