Tovala adds frozen food scanning to smart oven

first_imgVanessa Salas/CNET Last year we reviewed Tovala’s second-generation smart countertop oven. Much improved over the first version, it offered good-tasting meal kits, thoughtful design and quick cooking. Our biggest gripe with it was the cost of the meal kits. At $12 per serving, it wasn’t an economical answer. Now, Tovala is expanding its scanning technology to include meals from the frozen food aisle. tovala-oven-8Tovala meal kits cost $12 each.  Chris Monroe/CNET Tovala is kicking off its “Scan the Store” feature with meals from Trader Joe’s inventory. All the food found in the frozen section at Trader Joe’s can now be scanned, recognized and cooked in the Tovala oven. If you’re shopping at Trader Joe’s and wondering if a meal is compatible, the Tovala app can scan the barcode and let you know.Tovala’s oven uses a combination of steam, convection baking and broiling to cook Tovala meal kits. The oven scans the barcode on a Tovala or third-party meal and rotates between these modes according to the dish’s requirements.Read more: The best meal-kit delivery services When it comes to following third-party package instructions, Tovala says you can ignore instructions for preheating, temperature, cook time and even rack location. However, you should still follow directions for actions like puncturing the film, stirring or rotating food during cooking.Trader Joe’s is currently the only compatible retailer, but the team at Tovala says they are actively working on adding more foods to the database. The addition of a third-party meal option adds a lot of value to the $349 Tovala oven and brings it closer to competing with the $599 June Intelligent Oven. There isn’t any AI recognizing your food like the June has, but being able to scan a meal from your local grocery is a huge level up for Tovala in the practicality column.  CNET may get a commission from retail offers.

Govinda – Krushna fallout My kids dont know about Govindas existence says

first_imgKashmera Shah is a busy woman. From writing, scripting, directing and acting in her upcoming film – Marne Bhi Do Yaaron, to being a hands-on mother to her two kids; Kashmera has been juggling between her personal and professional life like a pro!Busy with the wrap-up and promotion of her upcoming film, Kashmera Shah is leaving no stone unturned in making sure her film reaches all the cities. Kashmera, who is known for her no-nonsense and uninhibited attitude, has turned director with the film that also stars debutant Rishab Chauhan. The film’s trailer was released at Cannes’ Film Festival this year. Marne Bhi Do Yaaron, which she calls as a dark-humoured ‘anti-suicidal’ film, has Krushna Abhishek playing a never-seen-before role.In an exclusive interview with International Business Times, Kashmera Shah spoke at length about the film, how she strikes a balance between personal and professional life, Krushna Abhishek, her kids and the fall-out with Govinda and his wife Sunita. It had all started when last year, Kashmera had tweeted about ‘people who dance for money’, which Sunita had taken an offence to think it was directed towards them. What followed was an explosive interview by Sunita where she revealed that they have broken all ties with Krushna and family. Kashmera too had explained her side of the story.Kashmera had also revealed that neither Sunita nor Govinda had come to see her newborns when they were at the hospital, despite knowing that one of their kids was fighting for his life soon after birth. Now, in a chat with IBT, spilling the beans on whether it is all water under the bridge, Kashmera said, “No. I don’t even think my kids know that they have somebody called Govinda and Sunita in their life. And, I think they are ok.”We also asked Kashmera about Govinda’s revelation of having been offered Avatar and him being the one who had suggested the title – Avatar – to him. A surprised Kashmera asked, “Are you serious? Really? Did he say that? My God!”Marne Bhi Do Yaaron is slated to release in October.last_img read more

Facebook launches LogDevice An open source distributed data store designed for logs

first_imgYesterday, Facebook open-sourced LogDevice, a distributed data store designed specifically for logs. This initial release includes the toolset that forms the core of LogDevice operational infrastructure. In future, they are planning to open-source the automation tools that they have built to manage LogDevice clusters. It is currently supported only on Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic Beaver). However, it should be possible to build it on any other Linux distribution without significant challenges. What is LogDevice LogDevice, as the name suggests, is a log system which promises to be scalable and fault tolerant. Unlike filesystems, which store and serve data as organized files, LogDevice stores and delivers data as logs. A log is a record-oriented, append-only, trimmable file. How it works LogDevice uses a placement and delivery scheme, which is great for write availability and handling spiky write workloads: 1. Separating sequencing and storage: First, the ordering of records is decoupled from the actual storage of record copies. For every log in a LogDevice cluster, a sequencer object is executed to issue monotonically increasing sequence numbers as records are appended to that log. Source: Facebook 2. Placement: After a record is stamped with a sequence number, its copies can be potentially stored on any storage in the cluster. 3. Reading: A client who wants to read a particular log contacts all storage nodes that are permitted to store records of that log. These nodes are collectively called node set of the log and usually kept smaller than the total number of nodes in the cluster. The contacted nodes deliver record copies to the client by pushing them into the TCP connections as fast as they can. 4. Metadata history: The node set is part of the replication policy of the log. It can be changed at any time, with an appropriate note in the log’s metadata history. Readers can then consult it in order to find the storage nodes to connect to. 5. Reordering and de-duplication: The reordering and occasional de-duplication of records is done by the LogDevice client library. This is done to ensure that the records are delivered to the reader application in the order of their log sequence number (LSN). What are its common use cases Facebook uses LogDevice for various use cases, which include: Write-ahead logging for durability Transaction logging in a distributed database Event logging Journals of deferred work items Distribution of index updates in large distributed databases Machine learning pipelines Replication pipelines Durable reliable task queues Stream processing pipelines If you want to explore more on LogDevice and contribute to this open-source project, check out its official website and GitHub repository.

Costa Rica wildlife refuge seeks funds to pay surgery for ocelot with

first_img Facebook Comments An eight-month-old female ocelot will undergo urgent surgery on Wednesday to repair her broken jaw after being beaten, apparently, with a metal pipe.The case highlights the continuing problem of animal abuse in Costa Rica, while a bill that would impose stricter penalties for abusers languishes in the legislature.Environment Ministry (MINAE) officials discovered the ocelot earlier this month in San Juan de Mata, a community in the southwestern San José canton of Turrubares.According to Adrián Arce Arias, MINAE’s wildlife conservation director for the Central Pacific Conservation Area, a family found the ocelot — a threatened species — inside their henhouse and allegedly beat her with a metal pipe, leaving her unconscious.They then put her in a cage where she remained for several days without any care, food or water.The small feline was spotted by National Police officers who saw the cage from the street and noticed the animal’s poor conditions during a rutine inspection of the neighborhood.“Officers knocked at the house’s door and homeowners told them they had captured the animal the day before and that they were just about to call MINAE to help them remove her from their property,” Arce told The Tico Times.The officers called the Refugio Herpetológico, a private-owned wildlife refuge in Santa Ana, west of San José, which took her in and has been taking care of her since. Refgue personnel even gave her a name: Alik.The wildlife refuge’s resident biologist Rodolfo Vargas Leitón said vets conducted full physical examinations and blood tests on the ocelot. They also took x-rays because they noticed she was having trouble eating.The results showed that her jaw was fractured and that she also had other wounds “consistent with injures inflicted with a metal object, like a metal pipe.”In addition, she was severely malnourished, dehydrated, affected by parasites and higly stressed.“We even had to remove nearly 300 ticks, and she had to undergo a very delicate process to stabilize her, as her general condition was very bad,” Vargas said.While abuse continues, animal welfare bill at stalemateCases of animal cruelty in Costa Rica keep appearing on social media, but the country’s current laws don’t do much to discourage these acts.Early on in his administration, President Luis Guillermo Solís promised to speed up the adoption of laws to protect animals. Specifically, bill 18,298 seeks to enforce prison sentences and high monetary fines for those responsible for harming or killing wild or domestic animals.Last December Solís promised to prioritize the bill on the Legislative Assembly’s agenda. But discussions at the full Assembly have been delayed several times. Some lawmakers claim the current draft bill would unduly affect certain farming activities, and that parts of the bill may even be unconstitutional.Legislators from the Broad Front Party, National Liberation Party and the ruling Citizen Action Party have filed motions against the bill, leaving its passage at a stalemate.The government has carried out a series of public consultations with animal rights’ groups, who support the bill, and with sectors who believe the bill’s approval would hurt their business. The latter include cattle ranches, bullfight promoters, and organizers of horse parades and other animal-centered events that could be banned under the legislation.Currently the proposal is under consultation at the Prosecutor’s Office, since some prosecutors expressed doubts earlier this year about the practical implications of prison sentences for some proposed crimes.Refugio Herpetológico seeks help to pay for Alik’s surgeryFollowing the publication of Alik’s story on the refuge’s Facebook page, the organization has received several offers from veterinarians willing to perform the ocelot’s jaw repair surgery for free. But the refuge still needs $1,500 to pay for materials and post-surgery care.The most expensive items are two titanium plates and nine titanium screws.“We contacted various titanium component manufacturers and managed to get them at factory price,” Vargas said. On Tuesday evening the refuge reported that they reached an agreement with one of the manufacturers to get the titanium supplies on credit.Refugio Herpetológico is asking people to help pay off the credit. Those interested in donating can do so through the refuge’s bank account (921387056) at BAC San José. An online form on the refuge’s website also allows donations through a PayPal account.Call the refuge for further information at (506) 2282-4614.See a video of Alik (Spanish only) posted by the Refugio Herpetológico: Related posts:Beaten ocelot successfully recovers from jaw surgery Costa Rica animal welfare bill gains momentum as horrifying abuse cases circulate on social media Grecia, the toucan with the prosthetic beak, now receiving visitors President Solís signs new Animal Welfare Lawlast_img read more

UN agency calls for full probe into Jamaica murder

first_imgAssociated PressKINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) – The UN’s refugee agency on Tuesday called for a full investigation into the abduction and slaying of a human rights activist that has increased worry over crime in this Caribbean country.Attorney Clover Graham, who was Jamaica’s honorary liaison for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, was found at daybreak Sunday with her throat slashed in tall weeds by the Caymanas Polo Club just outside of the capital of Kingston. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technology UNHCR regional representative Vincent Cochetel described Graham as a “passionate human rights activist” who worked with the UN agency since 1998 by counseling asylum seekers and helping Haitian refugees find shelter and jobs.“She was always ready to give her time, energy, legal expertise and even her personal money to assist destitute refugees and asylum seekers in Jamaica,” Cochetel said.Deputy Police Commissioner Glenmore Hinds said detectives are working to establish a motive in the 56-year-old woman’s slaying. There have been no arrests.Four years ago, Graham’s son and his girlfriend were also found in a field with their throats slashed after they brought crutches and other medical supplies to men they had accidentally injured in a road crash. Two men were recently convicted of those murders, which were dubbed the “good Samaritan” slayings.The killing of Graham has sharpened crime fears in this violence-wracked Caribbean country of less than 3 million inhabitants. Most of the violence takes place in rough slums, with tourist resorts largely crime-free.A U.N. study on the Caribbean released earlier this year said Jamaica has had the world’ third-highest murder rate over the past decade, with about 60 murders per 100,000 people. Last year, Jamaica had 1,125 slayings, a roughly 22 percent drop from the 1,442 killings in 2010. A record 1,683 people were killed in 2009. Top Stories Comments   Share   Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Sponsored Stories The Jamaican-born Graham was also a citizen of the United Kingdom, where she lived for many years. In Jamaica, she lived in a middle class section of Spanish Town, a southern city where violent gangs are deeply entrenched and authorities impose frequent curfews.Besides her work with the UN’s refugee agency, Graham was employed at a legal aid clinic at the University of the West Indies’ law school and also lectured at the island’s University of Technology.Fara Brown, a colleague at the Norman Manley Law School, said she was deeply shocked by her friend’s killing, though she said Graham would not want people to dwell on the “horrific aspects of her demise,” but instead celebrate the life of service that she lived.“She was somebody who had really dedicated herself to the betterment of her fellow citizens. She honestly made it a point of duty to help everyone she could and lived her life that way,” Brown said Tuesday.The UNHCR said Graham is survived by husband Rex McKenzie and their two daughters, Arusha, 26, and Zakiya, 23, who is eight months pregnant.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

2016 12:02 am Top News Ratan Tata’s comments favouring scrapping of the so-called 5/20 norm for airline operators merits serious consideration by the country’s policymakers The chairman emeritus of Tata Sons has rightly criticised the rule that requires an Indian carrier to have a minimum of five years of domestic running experience and at least 20 planes in its fleet to operate international flights Tata may have business interests in seeing that this rule goes His group after all is a co-promoter of two relatively new airline ventures — AirAsia India and Vistara — whose operations are impacted by the 5/20 rule But that does not diminish the strength of the basic argument that he is making of how the entrenched carriers are using “monopolistic pressures” and “lobbying” to retain the rule Business interests apart it is consumer interest that is the real issue here In a liberalised economy the government cannot dictate the fares that airlines charge from consumers All it can do is ensure a regulatory environment that allows competition The 5/20 norm clearly undermines this by circumscribing new entrants and foreclosing the benefits that would accrue to consumers by way of cheaper tickets better services newer routes and seamless travel The supposed rationale behind the rule is to ensure that only credible airlines — with recognised records of safety experience and financial strength — are allowed to operate This argument would effectively shut out even ventures that have established international carriers as co-promoters This is the case with the two Tata joint ventures and also others that may be wanting to set up similar JVs Related to this is the fact that in today’s world making distinctions between domestic and international operations of airlines makes no sense There are many overseas Indian workers living in hinterland Indian towns using domestic flights to connect to metro airports for international travel These consumers mostly from less well-off

Published: May 8 2017 9:25 pm Scientists already knew that stem cells contained in a bulge area of hair follicles are involved in making hair and that SCF is important for pigmented cells (Representational Image) Top News Scientists have identified the cells responsible for hair growth as well as the mechanism that causes them to turn grey a finding that could lead to new treatments for balding and greying hair “Although this project was started in an effort to understand how certain kinds of tumours form we ended up learning why hair turns grey and discovering the identity of the cell that directly gives rise to hair” said Lu Le associate professor at the University of Texas Southwestern in the US “With this knowledge we hope in the future to create a topical compound or to safely deliver the necessary gene to hair follicles to correct these cosmetic problems” said Le The researchers found that a protein called KROX20 more commonly associated with nerve development in this case turns on in skin cells that become the hair shaft These hair precursor or progenitor cells then produce a protein called stem cell factor (SCF) that the researchers showed is essential for hair pigmentation When they deleted the SCF gene in the hair progenitor cells in mouse models the animal’s hair turned white When they deleted the KROX20-producing cells no hair grew and the mice became bald according to the study The researchers serendipitously uncovered this explanation for balding and hair greying while studying a disorder called Neurofibromatosis Type 1 a rare genetic disease that causes tumours to grow on nerves Scientists already knew that stem cells contained in a bulge area of hair follicles are involved in making hair and that SCF is important for pigmented cells said Le However they did not know what happens after those stem cells move down to the base or bulb of hair follicles and which cells in the hair follicles produce SCF – or that cells involved in hair shaft creation make the KROX20 protein he said If cells with functioning KROX20 and SCF are present they move up from the bulb interact with pigment-producing melanocyte cells and grow into pigmented hairs But without SCF the hair in mouse models was grey and then turned white with age according to the study Without KROX20-producing cells no hair grew the study said Researchers will now try to find out if the KROX20 in cells and the SCF gene stop working properly as people age leading to the greying and hair thinning seen in older people – as well as in male pattern baldness Le said The research also could provide answers about why we age in general as hair greying and hair loss are among the first signs of ageing For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More

a link between lack of sleep and increased risk of breast cancer a new study has found that melatonin a hormone produced in the human brain at night to regulate sleep cycles appears to suppress the growth of these tumours While treatments based on this key discovery are still years away the results can give scientists a key foundation on which to build future research “You can watch bears in the zoo but you only understand bear behavior by seeing them in the wild Similarly understanding the expression of genes in their natural environment reveals how they interact in disease settings That’s what is so special about this work” said co-author of the study David Arnosti Professor at Michigan State University in the US Scientists have speculated that the lack of melatonin due in part to our sleep-deprived modern society put women at higher risk for breast cancer The latest study showed that melatonin suppresses the growth of breast cancer stem cells providing scientific proof to support the growing body of anecdotal evidence on sleep deprivation The research team was led by Juliana Lopes a visiting researcher from Sao Paolo Brazil For their experiment the scientists grew tumours from stem cells known as “mammospheres” The growth of these mammospheres was enhanced with chemicals known to fuel tumour growth namely the natural hormone estrogen and estrogen-like chemical Bisphenol A
