THERE may be just two games to go before the semi

first_imgTHERE may be just two games to go before the semi-finals but Keiron Cunningham is not allowing his team to focus on anything other than Widnes.Saints travel to the Select Security Stadium on Sunday (3pm) to take on a Vikings team that cannot make the top four.But that makes them even more dangerous according to the club’s head coach.“We still don’t know where we will finish in the top four,” he said. “It is a good entertaining group of teams up there and anyone can beat anyone. Look at the criticism Wigan came under after the Widnes game… and then they go and do a great job at Hull FC.“Warrington are performing well too and are probably the best side in the last block of games. They won before the cup final and then sent kids to Catalans and came away with the points. That is testament to how well they are playing.“If you have any ambition to win the comp then you will have to beat a good side along the way. We will take wherever we go and do the best job we can.“Until then, we are focused on our next game and that is Widnes on Sunday.”He continued: “We have to go and do a job there. We are fairly fit and healthy and have to make sure we do the right things.“Widnes are in the same situation as Castleford – they are playing carefree. They did a great job at Wigan and had a good dig against Warrington. It is always a tough game on their ground and it will be physical.“It is hard to prepare against sides that having nothing to play. It is usually when they are at their most dangerous.“But we want to keep on chugging along and getting better each week.“We know we have to start well but perhaps we have made it big a deal. It has possibly created a psychological wall were we are nervous about our starts.“We just have to get on with it because the anxiety doesn’t help.”Tickets for Saints final two games of the Super 8s are on sale from the Ticket Office at Langtree Park, by calling 01744 455 052 or online here.last_img read more

Mediafly Unveils New Sales Enablement Platform Experience for the Future of Evolved

first_img B2B buyerscontent managementMarketing TechnologyMediaflyNewsSales enablement technologySAP App Center Partner Previous ArticleGlobal Customer Adoption Accelerating for 8×8 Contact Center SolutionNext ArticleFor Highly Reputable Senders, 91 Percent of Emails Reach Their Intended Audience—Compared to 70 Percent or Less for All Other Senders Mediafly, a provider of sales enablement technology, content management, and advisory services that create interactive, value-based selling experiences, presents a brand new platform interface and added functionality to meet the needs of sellers across the globe. In addition to the updated user experience, new capabilities include Mediafly Workspaces, Story Mapper and Tool Builder, which provide users the ability to customize in-app experiences on their own, without incremental coding resources, including designing custom ROI calculators. As part of the new platform experience, Mediafly is introducing a new iOS app – Mediafly Next.While companies have the best intentions when unveiling new sales enablement solutions, many of these deployments fail. According to one study, U.S. organizations wasted $30 billion on unused software over the course of four years. Often times, this is due to technology not meeting the expectations of its users. For sellers, lack of customization and legacy solutions leave them scrambling to find relevant content and value-based evidence to provide the personalized sales interactions that modern buyers require. Admins and leaders of these teams are left to figure out how to design and organize the information that sellers need to succeed. Unfortunately, for many organizations, the process of designing an intuitive presentation app experience with interactive content that gains positive feedback and ultimately, a purchase, requires an unrealistic investment of time and budget.“Sales enablement technology should be flexible, easy to use and allow for customization,” said Jason Shah, CTO at Mediafly. “Our customers want to personalize their solutions so they can provide the best experience to their buyers. With the new Mediafly, users can continue to feel well equipped in their sales conversations, providing value to their buyers at a faster rate, helping to increase revenue and exceed quotas.”Marketing Technology News: ON24 Empowers Marketers with a 360-degree View of Customer EngagementTo help sales teams evolve from traditional content management portals and presentation tools like PowerPoint and guide them on how to improve sales, Mediafly gives users access to a modern, sophisticated, consumer-like presentation app experience across desktop and mobile. Now admins and sales reps can easily self-author and experience an interface with animations, customizable layouts and navigation, and interactive content without added support from Mediafly or IT.Mediafly’s release includes three new capabilities: Mediafly Workspaces, Story Mapper and Tool Builder. With Workspaces, admins have the power to create a mobile presentation interface with the navigation and content they want the sales teams to leverage, and sellers can find the content they need with ease for their unique sales presentation. Through Story Mapper, sellers can instantly pivot to relevant content in their presentation to better address buyers needs and questions. This allows them to create buyer-focused conversations through an interactive and value-add interaction.Value-add experiences are increasingly important as B2B buyers become more budget restrained and risk-averse. In fact, six in 10 buyers want to discuss pricing on the first call. Mediafly’s Tool Builder gives sellers the flexibility to customize interactive tools such as ROI and TCO calculators in an easy-to-use environment, saving the user time and energy. Sellers can provide buyers with meaningful value messaging, compelling insights and credible financial justification that is unique to that specific buyer in every sales conversation.Marketing Technology News: Vyond Announces End of Beta for Vyond Studio, Enhanced Security Features“Since we started using Mediafly, our customers have rated their experience higher, citing things like the ability of reps to give them the best information in the moment,” said Tom Stubbs, Sales Capability Communications Manager at PepsiCo. “Mediafly gives us the ability to design a modern sales experience customers value.”Mediafly’s latest sales enablement technology updates are just a few of the ways Mediafly helps sellers and marketers create, deliver, and analyze engaging sales presentations. Mediafly’s continued focus on enhancing how brands engage prospective buyers was recently recognized by G2. The sales enablement platform was named a Leader in G2’s Spring 2019 Grid Report for Sales Enablement. The grid, which is based on customer satisfaction and market presence, highlights that 96 percent of Mediafly users rated the platform 4 or 5 stars and 90 percent of users would recommend Mediafly’s platform. Additionally, Mediafly was recognized as a SAP Finalist for SAP App Center Partner of the Year. The award recognizes SAP partners with world-class solutions, contributing a significant amount to SAP revenue, a solid track record of customer success and a solid business plan for continued partner success.Marketing Technology News: Malicious and Disruptive Ads Account for 1 in Every 100 Impressions According to New Confiant Research Mediafly Unveils New Sales Enablement Platform Experience for the Future of Evolved Selling MTS Staff WriterMay 23, 2019, 4:55 pmMay 23, 2019 last_img read more

Centro Releases Universal Pixel for Easy Creation and Management of FirstParty Audiences

first_imgNow Available in Centro’s Basis Platform to Automate Tracking and Measurement of AudiencesCentro, a global provider of advertising technology, announced the launch of universal pixel on its comprehensive platform, Basis. Universal pixel technology uses a single pixel to automate the creation and organization of first-party audiences, eliminating the need for multiple audience and conversion pixels.This new Basis feature makes it easier and faster for advertisers to measure conversions and track customer actions. Beta tests show that media buyers are upping performance and saving time using universal pixel to segment and group customers into categories based on their actions within a domain.Basis is the industry’s most automated, comprehensive and intelligent digital media platform, converging planning, buying, operations, campaign analytics, business intelligence, and billing reconciliation. No other DSP combines high-grade programmatic advertising features with holistic media workflow technology. Basis seamlessly assembles the tools that media businesses need to move towards full automation.Marketing Technology News: DAA Announces Enforcement Deadline for ‘Political Ad’ Guidelines and Transparency Icon“As the steward of top tier brands, we have an enormous responsibility to drive KPIs for clients and do it with efficiency,” said Matt Mordarski, senior digital media specialist at Perich Advertising + Design. “Automating our business through Basis already gives us an edge in the market. Now we are capitalizing on new tools such as universal pixel to enhance the tracking of first-party audiences and increase the agility of our team.”“With our campaigns, we are continually measuring and improving upon our performance. Generating and managing pixels is an essential part; but until now, it has been a tedious and lengthy process. Having the ability to use only one pixel to create various models for targeting, attribution and subsequent optimization makes us more efficient while improving ROI for our clients,” said Jessica Behal, founder of Spherical Strategies. “Since using universal pixel in tandem with the full agency toolset in Basis, we have seen considerable improvements in campaign performance.”Traditionally, marketers have had to use multiple pixels to create first-party audiences and track unique actions from site visitors. This meant hours of work to create many pixels, coordinate placement, and verify deployment. Thanks to the introduction of universal pixel, that work has been eliminated.Marketing Technology News: SentinelOne Announces $120 Million Series DAs marketers’ needs change, they use Basis to modify the data a universal pixel gathers. One pixel has the capability to segment audiences based on any combination of actions they take (search, click, browse, convert, etc.). Any number of combinations can be assigned to a single pixel.“Universal pixel illustrates how digital media automation is realized, as it improves a typically laborious process of tracking how customers interact with a brand. Its impact on campaigns ranges as far as the creative thinking of the media team,” said Tyler Kelly, president, Centro. “With this feature seamlessly implemented in Basis, our customers have more capabilities that save time, reduce human error, and are easy to use.”Marketing Technology News: New Global Report Reveals 9 in 10 Companies See ‘Self-Service’ as the Future for Customers Centro Releases Universal Pixel for Easy Creation and Management of First-Party Audiences Globe NewswireJune 13, 2019, 6:51 pmJune 13, 2019 advertising technologyCentroMarketing TechnologyNewsPerich Advertising + DesignTyler Kellyuniversal pixel Previous ArticlePipelineDeals Launches the Women in Tech ScholarshipNext ArticleReelTime VRs New ReelTime Virtual Room May Be Coming to a Hotel or Home Near Youlast_img read more

Higher coronary artery calcium levels in middleage linked to increased risk for

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Jun 16 2019Higher coronary artery calcium levels in middle-age were associated with structural heart abnormalities linked to future heart failure, particularly among blacks, according to new research in Circulation: Cardiovascular Imaging, an American Heart Association journal.Coronary artery calcium (CAC) is the buildup of calcified plaque made up of fat, calcium and cholesterol. The calcium found in this type of plaque is not related to dietary calcium. Elevated cholesterol levels in the blood can contribute to plaque buildup, known as atherosclerosis, which narrows the channel within an artery and reduces blood flow.CAC is a risk marker for heart health problems, and CAC screening was added to the American Heart Association’s 2018 cholesterol management guidelines to further improve early detection of heart health abnormalities, especially among people who might be at a higher risk. A CAC score of zero indicates there is low risk in the absence of other high-risk conditions, while a score above zero indicates increasing risk.In this study, researchers tracked 2,449 people (52% white, 57% women) from young adulthood to middle-age. Non-invasive computed tomography imaging tests were used to gauge the participants’ vascular health, with participants’ imaging tests and CAC scores compared at years 15 and 25 of the study period.By year 25, participants’ average age was about 50. Seventy-two percent of the group had a CAC score of zero compared with 77% a decade earlier. Moreira and team found that increases in CAC scores were independently related to increasing age, male sex, black race, higher systolic blood pressure, higher total cholesterol, diabetes mellitus and current smoking, as well as the use of medications to lower blood pressure and cholesterol. Additionally, they found: Related StoriesImplanted device uses microcurrent to exercise heart muscle in cardiomyopathy patientsStudy explores role of iron in over 900 diseasesWeightlifting is better for the heart than cardioBlacks already face a greater risk and burden of heart disease and stroke: 60% of adult black men and 57% of adult black women have some form of cardiovascular disease, compared with 50% of white men and 43% of white women.”Racial differences in our findings may be due to genetic factors or perhaps greater exposure to cardiovascular risk factors that usually appear earlier in blacks,” Moreira said. “We need more research to examine the link between coronary artery calcium and heart health.””Prior studies have shown that presence of CAC and higher CAC scores are associated with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease in young to middle aged adults. The results of this study are important as they highlight that presence of CAC and higher CAC scores may also be associated with echocardiographic markers of subclinical LV systolic and diastolic dysfunction,” said Salim Virani, M.D., a member of the writing committee for the American Heart Association’s 2018 cholesterol guidelines and director of the Cardiology Fellowship Training Program at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. “Given the burden of morbidity and mortality associated with heart failure, these are important findings. Prior studies from this cohort have also shown that a better risk factors profile in young adulthood is associated with much lower CAC and therefore, these results further highlight the importance of primordial prevention and risk factor modification in early adulthood.”Source:American Heart AssociationJournal reference:Moreira, H.T. et al. (2019) Coronary Artery Calcium From Early Adulthood to Middle Age and Left Ventricular Structure and Function. Circulation: Cardiovascular Imaging. doi.org/10.1161/CIRCIMAGING.119.009228. Compared with patients who had CAC scores of zero, those who had higher CAC scores at middle-age had a 12% increase in left ventricular mass and a 9% increase in left ventricular volume, independent of other risk factors including demographic information and cardiovascular risks. Abnormalities in the left ventricle means the heart had to work harder to effectively pump blood, and as a result, became enlarged and thickened, a risk factor for heart failure. These findings were even more significant among blacks. For every one-unit change in a CAC score, blacks had four times higher increase in left ventricular mass compared with whites. While progression in CAC over the follow-up was strongly related to higher left ventricular mass in blacks, this relationship was not significant in whites. We looked at early adulthood to middle-age because this is a window in which we can see abnormalities that might not be causing symptoms, but could later increase the risk of heart problems. Prevention and control of these abnormalities are key, so early identification of risks can be crucial.”Henrique Turin Moreira, M.D., Ph.D., study co-author and an attending physician at Hospital das Clínicas de Ribeirão Preto at the University of São Paulo in Brazillast_img read more

US Senate votes to restore net neutrality rules

Protesters in Washington on February 27 urged lawmakers to reverse regulators and restore “net neutrality” rules that require all data to be treated equally Citation: US Senate votes to restore ‘net neutrality’ rules (2018, May 16) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-05-senate-votes-net-neutrality.html Explore further © 2018 AFP The 52-47 vote is likely to be symbolic, however, since the measure faces an uphill battle in the House of Representatives and would need enough lawmaker support to overturn a probable presidential veto.The vote marked the latest step in a contentious fight over rules governing online access over the past decade including court challenges and various moves by regulators.In December, the Federal Communications Commission voted 3-2 along party lines to reverse a 2015 order which established net neutrality and which itself had faced court challenges and intense partisan debate.In the Senate, three Republicans joined Democrats in the vote under the Congressional Review Act, which allows lawmakers to overturn a regulatory body.FCC chairman Ajit Pai, appointed by President Donald Trump, has argued that the 2015 rules were “heavy-handed” and failed to take into account the rapidly changing landscape for online services and were discouraging investment in advanced networks.Net neutrality backers have argued that clear rules are needed to prevent internet service providers from blocking or throttling services or websites for competitive reasons.Some activists fear internet service providers will seek to extract higher fees from services that are heavy data users, like Netflix or other streaming services, with these costs passed on to consumers.The battle has been largely along party lines, and has also been split with large tech firms supporting neutrality and telecom operators backing more flexible rules.Although the Senate vote may not succeed in restoring neutrality rules, backers said it would allow voters to know where their lawmakers stand.Democratic Senator Ed Markey said on Twitter the vote would “show the American people who sides with them, and who sides with the powerful special interests and corporate donors who are thriving under the @realDonaldTrump administration.”Ferras Vinh of the Center for Democracy & Technology, a digital rights group, welcomed the vote.”Without net neutrality protections, internet service providers will have an explicit license to block, slow, or levy tolls on content, which will limit choices for internet users and suffocate small businesses looking to enter the market,” Vinh said.”These protections are the guiding principles of the open internet, facilitating innovation and enabling the spread of new ideas.”But USTelecom, an industry group representing major broadband carriers, expressed disappointment.”This vote throws into reverse our shared goal of maintaining an open, thriving internet,” said association president Jonathan Spalter.”Consumers want permanent, comprehensive online protections, not half measures or election-year posturing from our representatives in Congress.” The US Senate voted Wednesday to restore so-called “net neutrality” rules aimed at requiring all online data to be treated equally, the latest step in a years-long battle on internet regulation.

Man Goes Blind After Wearing Contact Lenses in the Shower

first_img Acanthamoeba is a single-celled amoeba that’s commonly found in water, soil and air, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Contact lens wearers face a risk of contracting this infection if they engage in certain practices, such as disinfecting lenses with tap water or swimming or showering while wearing lenses, the CDC said. This amoeba has a particular affinity for the surfaces of contact lenses, meaning the lenses can be “a vehicle for the harboring, transmission and delivery of microorganisms to the eye,” according to a 2010 review paper on the topic published in the Journal of Optometry. But when Humphreys started wearing contact lenses in 2013 so he could play sports without glasses, he wasn’t aware of this showering risk. He would often hop in the shower with his contact lenses in after a morning workout. “I thought nothing of it at the time. I was never told not to wear contact lenses in the shower. There’s no warning on the packaging, and my opticians never mentioned a risk,” Humphreys said. After he was diagnosed with Acanthamoeba keratitis in early 2018, he was given eyedrops for his infection, but a few months later, he suddenly went blind in his right eye, according to PA Media. Humphreys was then prescribed a stronger medication, which needed to be applied to his eyes every hour, even at night. Humphreys became housebound and experienced severe pain in his right eye. “The pain in my eye was too much, and the only time I would leave was to visit the hospital,” Humphreys told PA Media. He would later undergo two operations in his right eye, the first to strengthen the tissue in his cornea and the second to protect the cornea with a graft of tissue from a fetal placenta. That procedure is known as an amniotic membrane transplant. Although his infection cleared up, Humphreys remains blind in his right eye. He is scheduled to undergo a corneal transplant in August. This operation replaces damaged corneal tissue with healthy corneal tissue from a deceased donor. Humphreys now works with the charity Fight for Sight to raise awareness about the risks of showering or swimming with contact lenses. “It’s crucial that people out there know this is a reality and it can happen because of something as simple as getting in the shower,” Humphreys said. 27 Oddest Medical Case Reports Our fantastic Fight for Sight supporter, Nick Humphreys, is raising awareness of the need for correct contact lens care and clearer information on contact lens packaging, after losing his sight in one eye to Acanthamoeba keratitis: https://t.co/ooUYXWlyYF #ContactLenses #AKby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeVikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedVikings: Free Online GameUndoTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionOne Thing All Liars Have in Common, Brace YourselfTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionUndoGundry MD Total Restore SupplementU.S. Cardiologist: It’s Like a Pressure Wash for Your InsidesGundry MD Total Restore SupplementUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.

The man, 29-year-old Nick Humphreys of Shropshire, England, typically left his contact lenses in while showering, without knowing that this practice can increase the risk of eye infections, according to PA Media, a U.K.-based media agency. In 2018, he contracted Acanthamoeba keratitis, a rare parasitic infection of the cornea, or the eye’s transparent outer covering. “If I’d have known how dangerous it was to wear contacts in the shower, I would never have got them in the first place,” Humphreys told PA Media.
