Gaza UN human rights chief urges Hamas to halt executions

During the night of 14 to 15 April, two prisoners accused of “crimes” associated with the occupation of Palestine by the Government of Israel were executed in Gaza, according to a news release issued by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).“I am deeply concerned by the executions, and the possibility that some others might be carried out soon,” High Commissioner Navi Pillay said.She added that it is “extremely disappointing” that Hamas – which took over control of Gaza in June 2007 from the Palestinian Authority – has now returned to the use of the death penalty, despite the fact that no officially sanctioned death sentences have been carried out in the area since 2000.“I call on Hamas to reconsider its position and exhibit respect for the international community’s firm rejection of the death penalty, to abolish its use in Gaza, and to fully uphold and promote the right to life,” said Ms. Pillay, referring to a widely supported 2007 UN General Assembly resolution that calls for a worldwide moratorium on executions. She also expressed alarm at unconfirmed reports that several more prisoners may soon be executed. OHCHR has received information that on Wednesday Hamas authorities called the families of a number of individuals sentenced to death, saying that they could make their last visit to their sons. “One absolute restriction is that the death penalty can only be imposed after observing fair trial guarantees in duly constituted courts, which is practically impossible in current circumstances in Gaza,” said Ms. Pillay. “For that reason, I urge Hamas to halt all further planned executions.” According to OHCHR, the de facto authorities in Gaza made public on 24 March the decision to carry out the execution of several alleged criminals. Four days later, they announced that a process to ratify such death sentences had been initiated, notwithstanding applicable law that requires all such sentences to be ratified by the president of the Palestinian Authority. Ms. Pillay added that she welcomed the current draft law under consideration by the Palestinian Authority, which seeks to abolish capital punishment. 16 April 2010The United Nations human rights chief today voiced her alarm and disappointment that Hamas has resumed executions in the Gaza Strip, and called on the de facto authorities to abolish the use of the death penalty. read more

Oregon senator Tax ecigarettes after Oregon vape death

PORTLAND, Ore. — Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden said Wednesday he will introduce legislation next week that would tax e-cigarettes in the same way that traditional cigarettes are taxed to reduce their appeal to teenagers who are increasingly taking up the popular smoking alternative.Wyden’s announcement came the day after Oregon public health officials said they are investigating the death of a middle-aged person who contracted a severe respiratory illness after using a vaping device that contained cannabis that was purchased at a marijuana dispensary.The death is the second one linked to vaping nationwide and the first linked by health officials to a product purchased at a dispensary. Illinois health officials last month said a patient who contracted a serious lung disease after vaping died. That death was considered the first in the United States linked to vaping.As of last week, 215 possible cases of severe pulmonary disease associated with the use of e-cigarettes had been reported by 25 states, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.“The products are highly addictive. They’re subject to minimal safety standards and oversights, exposing users to dangerous chemicals … and they are getting into the hands of more and more young people,” Wyden said.The American Vaping Association said in a statement Wednesday that vaping products are “far less harmful than smoking” and have helped those addicted to traditional cigarettes break that habit.“Making vaping products more expensive has not been shown to reduce experimentation by youth and will only lead to more adults continuing to smoke deadly combustible cigarettes,” Gregory Conley, the association’s president, said in an email.Conley pointed out the Oregon patient who died had vaped a product containing cannabis — a distinction that’s critical, he said. The association has blamed the recent spate of lung illnesses on illegal vape pens that contain THC, the compound that gives marijuana its high.“Oregon is far from the first state to specifically link recent serious lung illnesses to THC vaping products, but it is the first state to report a death or injury in a patient who purchased his or her products at a dispensary,” Conley said.Public health officials need to quickly release more information about what the person vaped to make clear the distinction between nicotine-containing e-cigarettes and vape pens infused with cannabis, he said.Wisconsin public health officials said late last month that 89% of the people they interviewed who became sick reported using e-cigarettes or other vaping devices to inhale THC.Under the law, marijuana dispensaries in Oregon can’t sell products that have not been tested by the state for contaminants. Authorities declined to provide more details Wednesday on what the patient vaped, where it was purchased and whether it had been properly inspected, citing the investigation.Jonathan Modie, the spokesman for the Oregon Health Authority, which oversees Oregon’s state-legal cannabis industry, did not return a call or email seeking comment.Health experts say nicotine is harmful to developing brains. Researchers worry that addicted teens will eventually switch from vaping to smoking.The rise in teen vaping has been driven mainly by flavoured cartridge-based products such as Juul. The rechargeable, odourless device can be used discreetly in bathrooms, hallways and even classrooms.E-cigarettes, which have been available in the U.S. since about 2007 and have grown into a more than $6 billion-a-year industry, are battery-powered devices that typically heat a flavoured nicotine solution into an inhalable aerosol. Juul, which launched in 2015, now controls roughly three-quarters of the U.S. retail market for e-cigarettes.Most experts agree the aerosol is less harmful than cigarette smoke because it does not contain most of the cancer-causing byproducts of burning tobacco. But there is virtually no research on the long-term effects of the vaping chemicals, some of which are toxic.____Follow Gillian Flaccus on Twitter at Flaccus, The Associated Press read more

UN announces new funding for small human rights projects in over 20

By providing up to $5,000 to community organizations and individuals, the project supports activities that can have a significant local impact, UNDP reported, citing the example of Liberia Prison Watch, which used a grant to monitor the human rights in prisons and create awareness about the rights of prisoners and detainees among members of the criminal justice system.”It is striking to see how much you can do with little money,” said a UNDP programme officer in Jordan. “You fund enthusiastic people on the ground and they do wonders.”During the newly announced phase of the project, which began in 1998, grants will be awarded to Burkina Faso, Burundi, Comoros, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Egypt, Guinea, Liberia, Madagascar, Sierra Leone, the United Republic of Tanzania, Cambodia, the Palestinian Territories, the Philippines, Samoa, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Uzbekistan, Colombia, Haiti and Venezuela. read more

Bargain Windsor hotels on offer to lure tourist to Princess Eugenies Royal

When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex got married in Windsor in May, the hotels rooms and B&Bs of the town were booked up months ahead at a premium, as homeowners cashed in on their castle views to advertise rooms for thousands of pounds.Anyone who missed out on seeing the Royal Family in all its glory then can take heart: there is still plenty of room at the inn for the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.Hotels in Windsor still have rooms available for the night of the wedding, with several appearing to have dropped their prices in the days leading up to the ceremony to entice tourists to stay overnight.AirBnB has rooms from £40, while the Harte and Garter, the pub hotel directly in front of the castle which was overrun by international media in May, still has rooms at £79 for Friday and Saturday, cheaper than any other night it offers until March 2019.On Sunday night, TripAdvisor was advertising 49 available properties in Windsor and its surrounding areas, with prices from just £75 and availability from the Travelodge to the Sir Christopher Wren Hotel and Spa.

The Queen and the rest of the royal family are expected to be out in force for the celebration for Princess Eugenie, the ninth-in-line to the throne and the daughter of the Duke of York and his ex-wife Sarah, Duchess of York, and Jack Brooksbank, European brand manager for a tequila company.A friend close to the princess said of the wedding preparations: “It’s all going fine. It’s all progressing and they’re excited.”The Dean of Windsor, David Conner, will marry the couple while the Archbishop of York, John Sentamu, will lead the prayers.Around 1,200 members of the public have been given balloted invitations to the castle’s Lower Ward, joining charity representatives, children from Princess Eugenie’s old schools, and Royal Household staff. St George’s Chapel at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan MarkleCredit:AFP St George's Chapel at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle As well as travelling to Windsor, interested members of the public will be able to watch from home on television on ITV, with a This Morning special. The BBC and Sky are not broadcasting the full ceremony. Logistics for the day also appear to be drastically simpler than on May 19, when visitors hoping to catch a glimpse of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were advised to travel first thing in the morning, book special car parks outside the town centre and be warned that they may not even be able to enter the main streets due to the sheer numbers of tourists. Jack Brooksbank and Princess EugenieCredit:PA Crowds on the Long Walk on May 19 This time, the council has simply warned tourists to be mindful that the usual Windsor car parks may be very busy.Where on May 19, Great Western Railway and South Western Railway laid on extra trains and a more frequent service to Windsor stations, October 12 will see them operate a “normal Friday service”. More than 800 guests are expected to gather in St George’s Chapel, including most senior members of the Royal Family.On Sunday, it emerged that the Duchess of Cornwall would not be attending, instead undertaking a a prior engagement at a primary school’s harvest festival celebrations in Scotland.The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will attend the October 12 ceremony, having scheduled their tour of Australia to begin on Tuesday 16th. read more

Theo Jansens Strandbeest could be coming to a Lego store near you

first_imgArtist Theo Jansen is most well known for his kinetic sculptures called Strandbeets. Both breathtaking and terrifying, these gigantic moving structures bring a complexity and wonder to all who see them in their natural habitat.These seemingly otherworldly creatures feed off of wind energy, which is why you’ll find most of his pieces residing beachside. Others have replicated his structures into hamster-powered miniatures and even man-powered ones. However, it wasn’t long before someone decided to take the native Dutchman’s work one step further by using Lego parts—and fingers crossed—it might even become an official set fans can purchase.The idea is currently featured on Lego’s Cuusoo site, which is similar to the crowd-sourcing Kickstarter startup website. But rather than requesting money, all the user “kvanb” requires is your votes. The design must reach 10,000 supporters in order for the product idea to be reviewed by the Lego corporation. Currently, the project only has 238 votes.It doesn’t seem like there’s a time limit for the project to receive votes before it’s removed. According to the site, projects with 10,000 supporters are reviewed quarterly. If kvanb’s project does indeed receive 10,000 supporters and passes Lego’s review process, he will receive only 1% of the total net sales.Kvanb is a Dutch industrial designer and has worked with Jansen before. Those that think kvanb may be trying to profit off of another man’s work—don’t worry—Jansen has, according to this user, given his blessing to the Rhinoceros Lego project. And, in the spirit of Jansen’s work, the prototype has been designed to run off propulsion or wind power just like the originals.From the prototype pictured above, it looks maddeningly difficult to keep all the moving bits in order—something Lego enthusiasts will no doubt see as a great challenge.via Geek O Systemlast_img read more

Fukushima may use cosmic rays to assess nuclear reactor damage

first_imgBack in 2011, a nuclear reactor in Fukushima melted down due to the after effects of a tsunami. When a nuclear reactor melts down, that leaves quite a bit of radiation floating around as well as hazards — like pools contaminated with spent fuel rods — which make it difficult to assess the full extent of the damage. In turn, that also makes it difficult to figure out exactly how to handle the cleaning process. A team from Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) is now working with Fukushima officials to use cosmic rays to see into the reactor to provide a clear picture of the damage.When cosmic rays hit Earth’s atmosphere, they create high-energy muon particles. Muon detectors have been around since the 1950s, but they weren’t precise enough to see through, for instance, the rubble of a damaged nuclear reactor then differentiate between uranium rods or plain water with proximity-induced radioactive properties. LANL created technology that can better detect the muon particles and differentiate between their sources, called muon scattering radiography. Basically, the detector can tell which ways the muon is flowing, which in turn reveals what kind of materials the particles are running into.Currently, LANL is in talks with Fukushima officials to set up muon detectors on the damaged reactor’s premises. If set up, they could detect the particles hitting the different materials inside the damage reactor, and create something of an X-ray map of the harmful materials leaking within. It would take a few months for the detectors to provide images of the site, largely because we have no way of emitting muons on our own.The Japanese government is planning on cleaning up the site around 2020, and the aim is to have the detectors provide images around 2015 or 2016, so there would hopefully be enough time to take proper precautions.last_img read more

WSP Racing driver causes crash on state Highway 500

first_imgA Vancouver man racing in his car on state Highway 500 crashed into a tractor this morning, the Washington State Patrol said. Patrick Young, 21, was racing west in a 1992 Acura Integra with two other vehicles. While attempting to pass a 2007 Kenworth tractor, the Integra spun out of control and struck the tractor, according to the State Patrol. The crash was reported at 11:38 a.m. near Northeast Thurston Way. Young was not injured. His passenger, Leeza Reisch, 20, of Vancouver was transported to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center and later discharged from the hospital. The driver of the tractor, Thomas Panzella, 27, was injured, but denied transport to a hospital. One of the vehicles that Young was allegedly racing with continued driving down the highway after the crash, said Trooper Will Finn. The second vehicle stopped in the parking lot of the former TGI Fridays, but left before troopers could talk with the driver, Finn said. The State Patrol will seek charges against Young for reckless driving and reckless endangerment.last_img read more

Research in the June issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, however, shows that the use of 18F-FDG positron emission tomography (PET) scans can help to determine earlier if treatment for tuberculosis is working or if the disease is MDR.Tuberculosis and HIV have been linked since the AIDS epidemic began. Approximately 33.2 million people across the world are living with HIV, and an estimated one-third of them are co-infected with tuberculosis. In 2008, the number of MDR tuberculosis cases reached between 390,000-510,000, or 3.6 percent of all incident tuberculosis cases. MDR tuberculosis is very difficult to treat and is often fatal.”Early detection of drug resistance of tuberculosis allows the initiation of an appropriate treatment, which may significantly affect patient survival. Currently, more than two-thirds of patients with MDR tuberculosis die,” said Mike Sathekge, M.D., Ph.D., lead author of the study “Use of 18F-FDG PET to Predict Response to First-Line Tuberculostatics in HIV-Associated Tuberculosis.”In the prospective pilot study, 24 patients with tuberculosis underwent 18F-FDG PET scans prior to receiving tuberculosis treatment–the standard triad: isoniazid, rifampicin and ethambutol. After four months of treatment, the patients received another 18F-FDG scan to measure averaged maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) – which measures glucose metabolic activity – derived from early and delayed imaging, percentage change in SUVmax and number of involved lymph node basins.The researchers found that SUVmax of involved lymph nodes, number of involved lymph node basins and C-reactive protein levels assessed by the PET scan were significantly higher in nonresponders than responders. It was determined that a cutoff of five or more lymph node basins allowed for a separation of treatment responders and nonresponders.According to Sathekge, “18F-FDG PET has the potential to become a valuable clinical adjunct to the already available genotypic and phenotypic tests in patients for whom such tests are not feasible, are inconclusive or are too lengthy to be of clinical relevance.”For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | August 07, 2019 Contrast Use in First Transthoracic Echocardiogram for Heart Failure Reduces Repeat Testing Heart failure is the fourth most common cause for all admission to U.S. hospitals, and it is the most common reason for… read more News | Colonoscopy Systems | August 06, 2019 Rise in Early Onset Colorectal Cancer Not Aligned With Screening Trends A new study finds that trends in colonoscopy rates did not fully align with the increase in colorectal cancer (CRC) in… read more News | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 06, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Improves Heart Attack Risk Assessment When used with a common heart scan, machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence (AI), does better than… read morelast_img read more

charity each month giving away a quarter of its profits The business has worked with outfits like the Cook County jail buying blooms that inmates grow as part of an agriculture-based rehabilitation programIf these floral entrepreneurs have anything in common besides measuring things in "stems" it’s contempt for the old ways of doing business "The process sucks" says Schwab speaking of his experiences buying flowers before co-founding BloomThat in 2013 "Every time I send them they’re ugly or they’re wrong or they’re different and they’re never really a representation of who I am or what I want And they’re expensive"From women to womenRelatedlanguageOne of the World’s 7000 Languages Dies Every Three Months Can Apps Help Save ThemlanguageOne of the World’s 7000 Languages Dies Every Three Months Can Apps Help Save ThemAnother thing most of these floral startups have in common is that they were founded by men Farmgirl Flowers is the lone company in this cohort that was founded by a woman And that may be a business advantage in an industry that caters largely to female consumers Stembel says she fell into the same trap as many other founders in the beginning thinking that it was men who do most of the flower-buying in America While men do shell out for blooms on holidays like Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day they say when the year is looked at as a whole several of these startups say that more than 75% of their customers are female On a daily basis most flowers in the US are being sent from women to womenWhatever benefit her gender might give her Stembel believes it has also been a hurdle Despite year-over-year growth and a loyal following she says she has had trouble raising funds from rooms full of male venture capitalists Fellow San Francisco-based competitor BloomThat meanwhile counts the likes of actor Ashton Kutcher among investors Farmgirl Flowers (Stembel really did grow up on a farm in Indiana) founded in 2010 before going nationwide in 2015 has never had less than 240% growth year-over-year she says It would be profitable if Stembel wasn’t funneling every penny back into growing the business"It’s unconscious bias" she says "People trust people that look like them And I never pitch to a room full of women ever I always pitch to a room full of 50-year-old men There’s even a little bit of a good ol’ boys network where I can’t buy from some growers because I’m a woman"Some of those venture capitalists Stembel recalls have said they simply don’t see the appeal of her aesthetic—which may mean they’re failing to understand what most customers want To understand the difference between which blooms appeal to men and women Stembel conducted two focus groups She gathered 40 men and 40 women and made up two bouquets One was Farmgirl’s "typical style" with neutral and muted tones bold notes plants like ornamental kale blush chippendale roses and lisianthus The other was what she calls a "Crayola box" arrangement "where it’s every color of the rainbow like you would see at a lot of grocery stores" she says Then she asked them to indicate which one they preferred While 40 out of 40 women chose the Farmgirl bouquet 39 out of 40 men chose the Crayola option"It’s all about size with men" Stembel says of what she’s learned since then "They’d rather have the cheap—we think of them as gaudy—flowers like the Gerber daisies and the sunflowers big head but not very expensive And women want the garden roses the peonies fringe tulips calla lilies the really really special things And those have a much higher price point and are smaller flowers"Eliminating choiceMost of these startups count the elimination of waste and spoilage among their highest goals While many do this by limiting their selection to five or so bouquets that change seasonally rather than stocking everything like a florist might Farmgirl Flowers began with a more extreme idea: Offering only one arrangement per day To this Stembel then added a moral restraint also unique to her company: source all its flowers directly from American farmers of whom relatively few remain after decades of outsourcing to countries with lower wages weaker currencies lush growing seasons and stable duty-free agreements with the US (Washington is partly responsible for the import-heavy state of affairs and decline of the American flower farmer having previously encouraged South American farmers to grow and sell blooms to the US rather than cocaine)This business model does save Farmgirl Flowers the cost of spoiled inventory—she offers shoppers examples of her aesthetic with photos of previous arrangements so they have some idea what they’re getting—but it also saddles her with higher costs per stem "I could get a dozen roses from Ecuador for $3 if I wanted to" she says But she doesn’t Instead she pays between $9 and $25 to buy roses from the remaining farms in California where about 75% of American cut flowers are grownWhile she can position herself as a champion of American farmers in an age when buying local and domestic is de rigueur Stembel knows her insistence on buying American as well as her insistence on the expensive practice of hiring workers as employees rather than independent contractors may well be part of what is turning venture capitalists off Still she’s determined that just like she didn’t need a college degree to get this far she doesn’t need outside help to continue remaking the flower business"I have that dream where I’ll have that Pretty Woman moment" Stembel says in the flower market standing on top of eucalyptus leaves and beneath a sign of her company’s name in lights "where I go back to the VCs that I pitched in the last year and tell them ‘Big mistake’”The emphatic victory of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand assembly polls has brought the party’s relationship with its ideological mentor the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) back in focus One key question for which an answer has been sought ever since Narendra Modi led the BJP to power in 2014 is whether it is Modi who dominates the RSS or vice-versa Some political observers have been predicting that Modi will now dominate the RSS Others feel that with the Prime Minister and his protégé Amit Shah being in full command of the BJP and leading it to one victory after the other it is the beginning of the end of the RSS’ influence on the BJP A poster of Prime Minister Narendra Modi streaked saffron on eve of Holi PTI This is patently untrue The answers to these questions lie to some extent in the organisational structure of the BJP and the RSS But before we go into this it would be pertinent to point out that those who are raising such questions are starting this narrative on the premise that Modi and the RSS are at loggerheads with each other The fact is that Modi and RSS have been on the same page especially since the 2014 Lok Sabha polls The RSS’ learning from its experience during Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s earlier BJP regime has ensured that it does not get involved in the micro-management of either the party or the government The top RSS brass and the Modi-Shah duo have been communicating with each other almost every day discussing crucial policy and organisational issues The RSS has largely given a free hand to Modi and Shah and they have responded well by appointing people with strong RSS backgrounds in key positions within the government and the BJP An important example of the RSS and Modi being on the same page is the priority given to the north-east by the Prime Minister For the RSS expanding its footprint and strengthening its influence in the north-east is top of its agenda It feels that conversion of Hindus into Christianity has changed the demographics of this region resulting in a threat to India’s territorial integrity and this trend needs to be reversed More than 4000 RSS pracharaks (full-time workers) have been deployed in the region alone Modi’s first official domestic visit outside Delhi as Prime Minister was to the North East No other Prime Minister has visited north-eastern states so many times in such a short span after assuming office as Modi has In most of the central government ministries projects in north-eastern states are being pushed vigorously Organisationally Ram Madhav an RSS Pracharak has been given charge of the North East The results are visible The BJP has made strong inroads into the region It has formed governments in Arunachal Pradesh and Assam —and now in Manipur The party is hopeful of wresting other states in the near future Now if one looks at the organisational structure of the BJP one would realise how intrinsically the RSS and BJP are linked Both at the national level and the state level the second-most important post in BJP units after the President’s is that of an "Organising Secretary" These posts are manned exclusively by RSS Pracharaks The Organising Secretary has the last word when it comes to organisational issues He would sit in all crucial meetings and is part of the decision-making process at every level In bigger state units like Uttar Pradesh as well as at the national level the Organising Secretary is assisted by several deputies All of them are RSS full-timers They generally look after the BJP affairs in states allocated to them To make this clearer let us look at the case of Sunil Bansal the Organising Secretary of the BJP’s Uttar Pradesh unit Bansal played a key role in the 2014 victory of the BJP in the state He was the Man Friday of BJP President Amit Shah At that time he was "Assistant Organising Secretary (Sah Sangathan Mantri)" He was elevated to the post of Organising Secretary after his stellar role in the BJP’s performance in 2014 In 2017 he played a key role in delivering the state to the BJP In Uttarakhand a similar role has been played by another RSS full-timer Shiv Prakash who is an Assistant Organising Secretary at the national level He assists the BJP Organising Secretary Ram Lal who is also an RSS Pracharak If one looks at the Modi’s ministers almost three-fourths have been committed RSS cadres Before being drafting to the BJP senior ministers like JP Nadda Rajnath Singh Narendra Singh Tomar Manohar Parrikar Nitin Gadkari and Prakash Javadekar have been part of the RSS They were all handpicked by Modi The Chief Ministers picked by Modi such as Devendra Fadnavis (Maharashtra) ML Khattar (Haryana) and Raghubar Das (Jharkhand) have all been committed RSS workers Thus there is not going to be any shift in the balance of power within the Sangh Parivar as the Modi-Shah duo and the RSS top brass are not competing with each other — they are rather complementing each other The recent poll results are the outcome of this synergy — and Modi Shah and the RSS realise it well Three days after Hawaii’s false ballistic-missile alert triggered panic across the islands causing people to run for cover and

Showing people how it adds up we think will be very powerful and will drive behavior change" Heres everything else you ever wanted to know about this new contraption: Who came up with this idea Justin Lee a 29-year-old Canadian thought of the idea while studying biomedical computing at Queens University in Kingston Ontario He co-founded the company Mark One which now employees about 15 people in Canada and San Francisco Vessyl is the companys first product Why did it take seven years to design it Lee says the company went through dozens to a hundred iterations depending how you count them changing the size shape and aesthetics in pursuit of a product that would feel natural in both home and office environments Of course there was also the challenge of fitting the processor battery and sensors into the thin wall of the cup And Berman says people need to like the way it looks "We cant give people tools that are ugly and expect them to use them" he says Where did the name come from Lee says this name speaks to the fundamental function of all our glasses tumblers mugs and water bottlesall containers this is meant to replace How does it work Lee says they developed their sensor by adapting technology thats been used in the food industry for some timesomething like what a peanut butter-maker might employ to make sure all their product is consistent and high quality for instance The sensor is essentially the entire interior of the cup All you have to do is pour a drink in and the Vessyl automatically analyzes its nutritional content displaying calories on the container itself and more detailed information through the app Why would people need this The makers of Vessyl are positioning their product as a health monitoring tool something that can help you lose weight or make sure youre getting enough protein when youre trying to bulk up A pregnant woman might use it to monitor her caffeine levels And early-adopter types might just think its nifty But cant you just look at those nutritional labels on the sides of things like cans of soda Here is Lees take on that question: "Nutritional labels are important and they can provide really good information regarding that thing youre consuming right then and there What they dont do so well is remember the things youve already consumed" Vessyl keeps daily totals of your liquid calorie intake which reset every 24 hours and suggests amounts you should drink to stay hydrated factoring in the type of liquid youve been sipping If you drank a lot of alcohol on Monday for instance the Vessyl would recommend higher levels of water on Tuesday Berman says Do they expect people to put everything they drink into this like asking bartenders to pour cocktails into it Lee says that they know people are less likely to use a Vessyl in a bar and that they designed something meant to work at home and at the officewhere people spend most of their time If you dont have your Vessyl you can still manually enter beverages into the app which will add an estimated amount of nutrients to your daily total "Were realistic about the initial uses" Lee says How many drinks has Vessyl programmed into the system Lee wont give an exact amount but says theyve worked through popular brands and are now looking for “outliers” When TIME spoke to him in late July the company had just added beet juice and a lemon ginger probiotic beverage And theyre working on wine Would Vessyl spend $1000 on a certain bottle just to put it in the system "Probably" Lee says So what happens if a drink isnt in the system Lee is unclear about what the Vessyl would do if you poured say motor oil into it But for most potables the container can analyze the nutrients (giving a total for calories protein etc) even if the program doesnt know the specific name of the beverage How much does it cost During pre-ordering season Vessyls are going for $99 Theyll cost $199 once they actually start shipping in early 2015 Since going on sale in June the company has had more than 10000 pre-orders from 75 countries The top cities for orders respectively are New York San Francisco and London How much venture capital money has the company raised Right now theyre not saying Lee will only say theyve raised a seed round with multiple investors Is this a first generation of the product Lee says probably As more drinks are added to their system the company can send out updates to products already out therelike Apple sends out software updates for iPhones Future generations might identify contaminants mixes of various liquids (like orange juice and mango juice) or be dishwasher safe (this version must be hand-washed) "Were going to continue making it smarter and smarter" Lee says How is it powered The cup comes with what they call a "saucer" or charging station A one-hour charge will on average last for five to seven days assuming a person is drinking five to seven different liquids out of it each day Is Mark One working on other products Lee hints that the company may soon be trying to do the same thing for solid food "The focus of the company is automatic nutrient tracking tracking all the things we can consume so people can make healthier choices Vessyl is our first product But we do consume things outside of beverages" he says "Theres definitely more to come” Do you purely get information or does the cup make judgment calls like You should stop drinking so much coffee’ This is a smart cup not a bossy cup Lee says Users will be able to choose the amount of notifications they receive The Vessyl is meant to provide insights not "tsk tsk" owners If its true that people need a gadget like this to make healthier decisions is it sad that weve come to that point Berman says that experts have tried and tried to educate people out of unhealthy consumption and have come to the conclusion that education is just not enough His take is that the information a product like Vessyl makes accessible is really fighting back against the barrage of companies who market food not for health benefits but for profits What does the existence of the Vessyl say about where we are now "We want to be delighted in our everyday lives when it comes to everything that we use or touch" Lee says "What were seeing is evolution in objects" Write to Katy Steinmetz at katysteinmetz@timecom Centre for Social Justice it therefore goes
