Firefox’s New Crash Protection Beefed Up

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#Browsers#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Last Thursday we wrote about Firefox’s launch of its newest version, 3.6.4. This version separated the browser itself from the plug-ins that ride it. So if a plug-in were lagging, or otherwise going haywire, it wouldn’t crash the whole screen. These improvements are restricted to Linux and Windows until Version 4.0, which will include Mac. Today, Mozilla has announced a further upgrade, to version 3.6.6. With 3.6.6, the time-out has been increased, according to Mozilla’s Mike Beltzner.‘Following the release of Firefox 3.6.4 we heard from some users, mainly those using older computers, that they sometimes expect longer periods of non-responsiveness from plug-ins, especially with games. For these users the default timeout of 10 seconds was too short. To address this, we increased the amount of time Firefox waits for a plug-in to respond before terminating it from 10 to 45 seconds.” This update is automatic and does not require a second upload. curt hopkinscenter_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…last_img read more

Football Fivestar safety Jaiden Woodbey decommits from Ohio State signs with Florida

Ohio State’s top-ranked recruiting class suffered another blow on Early Signing Day after five-star safety Jaiden Woodbey decommitted from the Buckeyes and submitted his letter of intent to Florida State. Woodbey committed to Ohio State on Feb. 7, and maintained that commitment until Wednesday. He is the 27th-best prospect in the nation and second-best safety in the 2018 class, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings. The site also lists him as the No. 2 prospect in the state of California. Ohio State had depth in its recruiting class at the safety position, having added a pair of four-star prospects in Tyreke Johnson and Josh Proctor. Johnson is listed as the 41st-best prospect nationally and fifth-best at his position, while Proctor is the No. 76 prospect in the country and the No. 8 safety. read more

first_img Recommended Links This means the dollar will probably keep rising, at least in the short term. Now, most investors think this is a reason to avoid gold. But Pal is actually bullish on gold and the U.S. dollar right now. • Like us, Pal thinks the U.S. economy is headed for tough times… MarketWatch reported last week: Pal’s core presumption — one he’s held since 2014 — is bad news for the U.S.: He is convinced the country is headed for recession within a year. “The business cycle points to that,” he said, “and 100% of all two-term elections have had a recession within 12 months since 1910.” According to Investopedia, the business cycle is the “fluctuation in economic activity that an economy experiences over a period of time.” When the economy is growing, it’s called an expansion or a recovery. When the economy is shrinking, it’s called a recession. According to the government, the U.S. economy has been recovering since 2009. The current recovery is now more than seven years old, making it one of the longest recoveries in U.S. history. It’s also been one of the weakest recoveries on record. The U.S. economy has grown just 2.1% over the last seven years. That’s about half as fast as the economy’s historical growth rate. $22,050 in less than 4 months? In June of this year, technology expert Jeff Brown wrote a list of 21 private companies he predicted would IPO over the next 24 months… So far, two of these companies have already gone public. If you were lucky enough to buy both of these companies at their IPO price, you’d be sitting on gains of 138% and 303%… Enough to turn a $5,000 stake in each into a $22,050 profit in just a few short months. Now, a third company from Jeff’s list has announced plans to IPO this Tuesday, October 18… Click here now to learn more. – • The dollar could head higher in the coming months… The chart below shows the performance of the U.S. dollar over the past two years. You can see the dollar recently broke out of a “wedge” pattern. • Pal isn’t the only big-time investor worried about the U.S. economy… MarketWatch explains: Pal does have some prominent company: Savita Subramanian, Bank of America’s head of equity strategy, recently predicted the same; Janus Capital’s Bill Gross spoke of a lagging U.S. recovery in his September investment note; and bond investor Jeffrey Gundlach showed a chart during a recent webcast that revealed the start of a recession. And Wilbur Ross sees one coming in 18 months. • A recession would almost certainly be bad for stocks and bonds… But it could cause the price of gold to surge. After all, gold is the ultimate safe-haven asset. Investors buy gold when they expect stocks or the economy to struggle. Of course, Dispatch readers know that the U.S. government will likely do whatever it takes to prevent a recession. It could “print” more money or slash interest rates again. Pal says more easy money would be good for gold. MarketWatch reported: Should his prediction come true, Pal says, gold prices could double. If central banks want to get active and combat a slowing economy, he says, they will try to stimulate the economy via printing money or more easing, all of which plays “into the hands of gold.” • The “smart money” has loaded up on gold… Stanley Druckenmiller, one of the greatest traders ever, recently put about $300 million of his own money into gold. George Soros, another legendary investor and Druckenmiller’s former trading partner, also placed a huge bet on gold earlier this year when he invested $264 million in Barrick Gold (ABX), the world’s largest gold miner. Jeffrey Gundlach, chief executive of DoubleLine Capital, has a lot invested in gold and gold stocks, too. According to Pal, “all the really serious thinkers are interested in gold.” • Now could be the perfect time to buy gold… With the dollar rising, many investors aren’t thinking about gold. Some have even thrown in the towel on gold. We think these people are making a big mistake. As we’ve explained today, the strong dollar has been a drag on gold prices. But the dollar won’t stay strong forever. You see, the U.S. dollar is merely the “least awful” major currency to own right now. But when the U.S. economy runs into trouble again, the Fed will do what every other central bank does when this happens: flood the financial system with money. This will hurt the dollar and benefit gold. • Gold could skyrocket even if the U.S. economy can “put off” the inevitable recession… To understand why, watch this brand-new presentation. As you’ll see, a new “gold law” is set to take effect just two months from now. When it does, 1.6 billion people will have access to the global gold market for the first time in more than four decades. E.B. Tucker, editor of The Casey Report, says this could trigger a full-blown “gold-buying frenzy.” An estimated $3 TRILLION could flood a tiny corner of the gold market. Opportunities like this almost never happen. And yet, the mainstream media hasn’t said a peep about this. You can learn more about this upcoming event by watching this newly released video. We’ll also tell you the exact date to circle on your calendar AND how to make the most money off this incredible opportunity. Hint: It has nothing to do with buying gold coins.

Today’s chart compares the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) Manufacturing Index with the year-over-year performance of the S&P 500. The ISM measures the health of the manufacturing industry. According to MarketWatch, it’s one of Pal’s most trusted economic indicators. You can see that the ISM closely tracks the performance of the S&P 500. When it rises, U.S. stocks usually do, too. But that’s not happening right now. Today, the S&P 500 (blue line) is rising, while the ISM (red line) is falling. Pal says this is a very bad sign for the U.S. economy. MarketWatch reported: “It peaked in 2011 and has been bouncing around 50 for a while now,” he said. “The moment it starts to get to 47, 46, the odds of a full-on recession explode to 85%. We’re very close now, getting to the point where the probability is very high.” It’s not the only key economic indicator that’s screaming recession, either: “There’s a difference between the narrative, which is what you’re being told, versus the reality of the economic data,” said Pal. “It’s in no one’s interest ahead of the election to say the U.S. economy is a mess — [that] world trade freight shipments, container shipments, retail sales, restaurant sales, factory orders, durable orders are all showing a recession.” If the flood of bad economic data continues, the Fed will almost certainly print more money or cut interest rates. And that could easily send gold prices through the roof. The Federal Reserve is “doing less” than other major central banks right now. It’s not printing money like the European Central Bank and Bank of Japan. It’s not cutting interest rates either. The Fed is also talking about raising interest rates. If the Fed does this, U.S. assets will “pay” even more than European and Japanese assets. And that’s bullish for the U.S. dollar. There was a flight to safety after Brexit. This pushed many foreign investors into the U.S. dollar and U.S. assets, which a lot of investors still consider safe havens.

The details are here. The price of gold should be a lot higher… At least, that’s what Raoul Pal thinks. Pal is one of the world’s top “big-picture” investors. He used to work at Goldman Sachs and run a giant hedge fund, until he made so much money that he retired. Today, Pal writes The Global Macro Investor, a research letter read by some of the world’s biggest money managers. Recently, Pal came out in defense of gold. You see, gold has cooled off after climbing 25% over the first six months of the year. It’s down 8.5% since August. And it’s coming off seven straight down days, its worst losing streak since 2013. Gold’s recent selloff has many investors worried. But not Pal. He thinks investors could soon take shelter in gold…which could cause the price to double from current levels. Today, we’ll explain why Pal is so bullish on gold. But let’s first look at why gold has been struggling. • The U.S. dollar is soaring right now… The U.S. Dollar Index, which tracks the dollar’s performance versus major currencies like the euro and Japanese yen, is up 5.7% since May. And that’s been a major drag on the price of gold. Like most commodities, the dollar is priced in gold. This means gold gets “cheaper” when the dollar gets more expensive. There are a few reasons why the dollar has done well recently:last_img read more

Our Take A Number series is exploring problems aro

first_imgOur Take A Number series is exploring problems around the world through the lens of a single number.It’s about 7 p.m. on a chilly night, and Sirene Garcia is standing outside an apartment building about an hour’s drive from Rochester, N.Y.Even though Garcia has had a cold for the past few days, she has her laptop perched on the hood of her car, trying to test out the new telehealth program. Once the program kicks off, Finger Lakes Community Health’s doctors and nurse practitioners will be able to see patients at their homes through video calls.And there are a lot of patients who could use this: The center serves some 9,000 farm workers in this region near the Canadian border.But all of that depends tonight on whether or not Garcia, the center’s special programs director, can find a decent Internet connection.”Can you hear me OK?” Garcia says to her laptop, garbled sound spitting back at her through the speakers. She’s on a video call with one of her colleagues who’s based at one of FLCH’s eight locations.The Finger Lakes region, well-known for its rolling farmland and vineyards, is also home to a diverse and sizable refugee and immigrant population.Most of the challenges that plague FLCH revolve around place, and the issue of spotty cell and Internet service is no different. The rural communities FLCH serve include Mennonites, refugees from Burma and immigrants from China, Saudi Arabia, Haiti and Mexico. Yet being in rural places means potential patients may often be isolated, low-income and not have easy access to transportation — and therefore difficult to serve.Mary Zelazny, the health center’s CEO, says they’ve come up with a variety of approaches to trying to crack the location puzzle, including providing transportation to patients, and providing “in-camp” services, where doctors or nurse practitioners visit patients’ homes, often accompanied by translators or community outreach workers.Including the farm workers, the organization serves about 27,000 patients overall.And in a region so close to the border, a big fear for many of the farm workers is the heavy presence of the Border Patrol. Many fear to be out on the roads for things like going to the doctor, so the telehealth clinic offers a chance to reach them in a safe place.”We just have more presence here of border patrol,” Zelazny says. “I don’t ask any patients that comes into my health centers what their immigration status is, because I don’t care. My job, and my team’s job, is to make sure that we give them the best healthcare they can get.”The organization’s eight clinics are within 100 miles from the Canadian border. By U.S. law, Border Patrol can board — and search — any vehicle within a “reasonable distance” of the the border.And so if the patients can’t get to health care, Zelazny says, then the clinic will come to them.One the patients being served tonight is Pablo Lopez, 42, who came to the U.S. from Oaxaca two weeks earlier on a temporary work visa. Lopez, who’s been to the U.S. seven times in as many years, said that when he first came, he was worried. On TV, he’d seen reports about immigration, the police and language barriers that were alarming.Zelazny says that, throughout the years, even her own staff — many of whom are people of color — have been stopped by agents. And for a lot of farmworkers, regardless of their citizenship status, any run-ins with law enforcement cause a lot of anxiety.”You know, there’s just this fear factor that makes everything harder,” Zelazny says. “They don’t know what’s going to happen to them. You hear a lot of stories, and they may not be true, but some of them are.”At a training for the new pilot telehealth program earlier in the day, Terri Hannon, a nurse practitioner, says she was at a dairy farm recently, giving vaccinations. A farmer came up to her, Hannon recalls, “and he stated that his farm workers are very frightened and won’t leave the farm at all — not to go to the grocery store, or Walmart or medical appointments.”Hannon’s and her colleagues have heard similar things from patients they’ve visited.Orlando O’Neill, one of the health center’s outreach coordinators, thinks the new video program will help.”They’re afraid to come health center — even if they’re sick or ill,” O’Neill says. “This will be a good tool for them.”The program will eliminate the need to travel at least an hour to the health clinics, and it’ll keep the patients from having to take time out of their days.Sara Rosenbaum, a professor of health law and policy at George Washington University, points to the public health issues at stake: “Keeping your patients feeling that they can trust that using the health center services will not expose them is a huge, huge challenge.” Copyright 2018 NPR.

Many vaccines and some medicines such as insulin

first_imgMany vaccines and some medicines, such as insulin, have to be delivered by injection. That’s a pain, both for patients and for health care providers. But two groups of researchers are trying to put some of these medications in pill form to avoid the needle.One team of scientists, from MIT’s Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research and Harvard’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital, developed a system to deliver insulin that actually still uses a needle — but is so small you can swallow it and the injection doesn’t hurt.They built a pea-size device containing a spring that ejects a tiny dart of solid insulin into the wall of the stomach, says gastroenterologist Carlo Giovanni Traverso, an associate physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.”We chose the stomach as the site of delivery because we recognized that the stomach is a thick and robust part of the GI tract,” Traverso says.Once the device gets into the stomach, the humidity there allows the spring to launch the insulin dart.So far so good, but Traverso says there was a problem the team had to overcome: “How do we get these devices to self-orient such that the end that is doing the injecting part is in direct contact with a tissue?”To get it to roll into the right position all on its own, they turned to nature.”Leopard tortoises happened to have evolved a way of doing this,” Traverso says. The shape of the tortoise shell helps the turtle flip over if it happens to wind up on its back.And there was another source of inspiration: Weebles, those egg-shape toys that wobble but don’t fall down.As the researchers report in the journal Science, they’ve tested the device on pigs, and it can deliver a therapeutic dose of insulin provided the pig has an empty stomach.Traverso and his colleagues have been working with the global health care company Novo Nordisk to ready the device for human testing. He has received consulting fees from the company and is a co-inventor on patent applications describing oral biologic delivery. Traverso hopes their device will be ready for human tests in a few years.On the other side of the U.S., nanoengineer Ronnie Fang of the University of California, San Diego and his colleagues have a different delivery system. Theirs is a kind of ingestible microrocket, about the size of a grain of sand, that is designed to zip past the stomach and into the small intestine.”It actually propels [itself] using bubbles in a reaction of magnesium with biological fluids,” Fang says.The rocket has a coating that protects its payload from the acidic and enzyme-filled environment of the stomach. Once the rocket enters the small intestine, the change in acidity causes the coating to dissolve and lets the rocket stick to the intestinal wall to release its payload, in this case a vaccine protein.Much like Traverso’s design was inspired by the shape of a tortoise shell, the bubble-propelled microrocket travels like a bacterium.”If you had bacteria invade your gut, they’re not just going to be sitting around statically, they’re going to be swimming around, and they’re going to make it to the intestinal wall,” Fang says.As Fang and his colleagues report in Nano Letters, their delivery system works in mice, but human testing is probably many years off.
