Oh, Baby! Monitor Maker Nanit Lands $21 Million Investment and Finds a New Market
"The. Pandemic may have slowed venture capital deals to crawl, but that didn't stop baby monitor maker Nat from raising twenty one million dollars in a new round of funding. The company produces high tech video. Baby monitors a subscription APP and a line of wearable breathing band swaddled in sleeping bags, baby monitors of long given parents, a sense of security, allowing them to hear and later see they're sleeping children from another room. A quick glance can. Can put a worried momber. Daddy's and Nana's monitor gives parents in HD quality bird's eye view of their babies in infrared night-vision. The mobile APP lets you access the monitor from your phone or tablet features include sound and motion sensors as well as two way audio that lets you sing or talk to your little one Nannette promises the device which tracks sleep patterns is like having a personal sleep coach in the palm of your hand. O. And it's compatible with Amazon's Alexa to. But like all technology, these smart devices have a dark side. Hackers have breached. Baby monitors the past few years using cameras to spy on family members and speak to children. PR reported an alarming case alleging that a hacker reposition to camera remotely to a point at where one mother breastfed her baby several times a day in another reported by NBC News the Hacker, told the Baby I love you through the audio function. In February a report by PC magazines, cybersecurity firm bit defender found that the I baby monitor m-6 camera had vulnerabilities that could possibly allow hackers to download recordings access personal. Using the cameras ID and even control the camera. Initially MAG said. It's attempts to contact i. baby went unanswered, but once the report became public. The Monitor Company reportedly issued fix within twenty four hours. But critics say that monitor manufacturers could do a better job protecting users. There's often a gap between knowing the best practices in correctly implementing them on devices, said northeastern. University Associate Professor David Softness in Rico report the National Cyber Security Alliance, says risks can be minimized by following the devices security instructions and using a strong password also turn off the monitor when it's not an use. Beyond. hacks critic say there are other concerns reliability for one. Last November the Alad Smart Sock, a wearable monitor that wraps around the baby's foot to detect sleep patterns, oxygen, levels and heart rate stopped communicating with a mobile APP for about three days, according to the New York Times some experts wonder if all of this monitoring is just needlessly increasing parents anxiety. Privacy concerns should give parents pause to says Jamie Williams Staff Attorney at digital rights group, the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Every company has different privacy and data retention standards, and parents may not know what happens to their babies liked us once it's recorded by the Monitor. She told the. Washington Post despite these concerns. It's unlikely that new parents are giving up baby monitors anytime soon, but global interactive baby monitor market is projected to grow thirteen percent per year through twenty twenty four. After all worried parents need reassurance and now cove nineteen has ushered in a new market of users tech crunch reports that social distancing requirements have left grandparents, aunts and uncles craving baby time extended. Family now makes up twenty percent of Nana's users. With all of those remote babysitters watching, they're weary bundles of joy. Maybe smart monitors can give parents the peace of mind. They need to find the get some sleep.

New England art project draws attention to global warming
"You time travel one hundred years into the future what will your town look like how climate change have affected it? That's what artists in northeastern university. Professor Thomas Star asked when creating his recent installation remembrance of climate futures using local climate reports. He imagine climate related events that might happen in Essex Massachusetts and Durham New Hampshire. Then he mark those events with official looking plaques for example one notes that a boathouse was wrecked by storm surge in twenty thirty two. The idea is to make people think about climate change was being something that will affect them right where they're standing right where there reading the sign but not all the signs mark disasters some show how to adapt for example one mentions durum switch to renewable energy another notes that the causeway in Essex was raised to prevent flooding qr codes on each plaque linked to information on local climate change planning and how residents can get involved.

Better Late Than Never? Big Companies Scramble To Make Lofty Climate Promises
"A growing number of companies have announced plans to tackle climate change and it is not just companies with eco-friendly reputations. Npr's Camilla Domino reports that. These companies are responding to pressure on multiple fronts. Helping the planet is good for business. That's what Elizabeth Sirkin. The Environmental Defense Fund has been telling corporate leaders. We can't exist as people and we can exist as businesses without clean air clean water a stable climate. She started delivering that message. Twenty years ago it was so fundamentally obvious to me. I really felt like business would just get this. She figured CEO's would cut emissions governments would set new climate policies and she didn't need to get a new job. I never thought that this many years later I would still be doing. This turns out helping. The planet did not seem like the obvious move too many. Ceo's but there are signs of a shift. More companies are now promising to cut more carbon and to do it more quickly. And there's an acceleration in the number of companies setting so-called science based targets in line with the global agreement. The Paris Accord Kevin. Moss runs the Center for Business Sustainability at the World Resources Institute. It's a small fraction of the overall proportion of businesses. But it's lodge impactful companies like Guo. Mott's Light Target Light Hilton Hotels. So what changed while the effects of climate change are becoming clearer not as a future risk but something happening right now at the same time solar and wind energy keep getting cheaper and there's more pressure from investors and from customers from some governments. There might be some more surprising sources of pressure to like kids. Here's Elizabeth Sirkin again. I hear from business leaders all the time today that you know their kids come home and say what are you doing dad? This makes a difference. Employees are increasingly influential to Cam. Kim runs an APP. Called Blind. Tech workers can talk to each other about their workplaces and he says they're increasingly discussing issues like climate change. People talk a lot of compensation of course and the work culture but I think this is a whole new segment in a survey half. His users said companies climate policy affects whether or not they want to work their employees investors customers science. All of that played a role in Microsoft's recent decision to go beyond carbon neutral and pol more carbon dioxide out of the air then. The company admits but chief Sustainability Officer. Lucas Java says there's another factor too. He says it's helped to frame this as an accounting problem. And that really is what I see. Flip executives mindsets around is to just talk about this in terms that they understand talking about a carbon budget quantifying. Exactly how much companies emit and how much they'll need to cut at the end of the day. What companies are really good at doing is making decisions based on numbers of course setting carbon budget is one thing sticking to it is another and some experts say there could be a danger in relying on big corporations to drive the fight against climate change. Chilanga Baker is a professor at Northeastern University who studies the social justice dimensions of transition away from fossil fuels she says communities especially vulnerable and marginalized communities should have a say in the fight against climate change and feel the benefits of a switch to green energy. I'm just not sure if I have the faith given that you know. Corporations are very concerned about expenses and profits that they would really think about something that may add cost but that may be more just Baker says commitments from companies can definitely be powerful but she says government policy can make sure. Vulnerable populations are protected. She's not the only one who looks at these voluntary commitments and sees a need for regulation after all some companies taking action is nowhere near enough to stop climate change Elizabeth's Durkan who spent two decades urging companies to act. She's asking them to do more than just cut their own emissions. It's really critical to engage. The policymakers corporations from BP to Pepsico say they support a price on carbon sturgeon says companies. That really want to lead on climate need to put money towards advancing those policies Camille Domino ASCII NPR news.
Is Alexa always listening? New study examines accidental triggers of digital assistants
"Voice activated digital devices are becoming increasingly popular in people's homes but they're raising privacy concerns as well it was Kelly Byer reports a new study shedding some light on whether people should be worried unless that was the agenda here is the next event it is in progress digital assistants are great when it comes to answering your questions but the concern centers around privacy and when these devices are listening in a group of researchers out of Northeastern University and imperial university of London spent the last six months looking at what triggers these devices and whether they're listening all the time the study found no evidence to support these devices are always listening in they also set up several smart speakers and played one hundred twenty five hours of some Netflix shows with lots of dialogue and most of the devices were activated for less than six
Brickmaking bacteria and solar cells that turn waste heat into electricity
"Now we have staff writer Robert Service. He's here to tell us about engineered living materials. Things like exponentially replicating living bricks. And instant. Runways. Hi Bob okay. We're talking about engineered living materials. Can you break these terms down for us? It's basically just using organisms mostly microbes to make materials the idea of using organisms to make materials in any form has been around forever. Of course be trees to make word. We use cotton plants to for the continent textiles so in the last couple of decades. There's been many many examples where synthetic biologists have been using genetic engineering tools to tweak the genes of mostly microbes to get them to make all kinds of different molecules. They might be medicines. They might be improved. Production of ethanol probably hundreds of examples. What folks have been doing the last couple of years have now been trying to use some of the same genetic engineering tools to get microbes to make materials so think of things like replacements for bricks would like materials or something like that the metaphor that of coral that use stray was really helpful understanding us so there are organisms that do this all the time. Coral organisms secrete a form of bio cement that makes the coral reef. People are just trying to take advantage of some of that building prowess and put it to use in new ways. And this case engineers are using microbes to build things like rex. So how would that work? What do you do with the bacteria to make it? Grow a brick frio. There is an example Raleigh North Carolina company called Bio Mason. They use bacteria to essentially synthesize calcium carbonate which forms the cement around granules of sand. So you can basically make a bio cement. The reason why you might want to do that is normally when bricks or cement concrete has made. It takes a vast amount of energy to do that. You have to have kilns to hit the brakes to one thousand degrees. You have to fire them for long periods of time by going through a different route with engineered living materials. You can think about doing this at room temperature and therefore potentially reduce your cost quite a bit and your carbon footprint right and your carbon footprint. Yeah Yeah do you have to keep the bacteria alive inside a brick? If the bacteria grow the brick normally the way they do it is they start with sand and some nutrients for the bacteria and water and they formed the slurry and then the bacteria grow than after a few days. They begin to allow the bricks to dry out and as they do then. The bacteria will die. If these cells stay alive these microbes stay alive. Could they keep making bricks now? There is one example that we wrote about a about some researchers at the University of Colorado sort of taking the same idea to another level and they in a way they sort of like create like a sour dough starter in bread-making sour dough. You keep starrer with that has your yeast or whatever and use some of it to make particular love for Brad and then you add a little more the starting material and they get that to reproduce. Just keep doing that. And people keep their starters. I for years and years in the same way. But they're doing is they're getting bricks to reproduce themselves so they again do that. Slurry of the nutrients in the sand and and they make a bricks. They keep it in a state where it's the organisms are still viable and then they divide the bricks into and then they add more nutrients and more sand things like that to make two bricks which happens in a matter of hours and then they can do that generation after generations. You go one to two to four to eight exponential exponential breaks right. So they're they're growing bricks. Yeah what about this runway that you mentioned in your story in this case a group made a very large prototype of a full-scale run by they idea. There is in the military. And you want to set up an expeditionary runway and some hotspot around the world you don't WanNa have to carry all the San and aggregate with you and and everything else you would need to make a runway. You can just use local material bringing in some drums of the bacteria that will do the job and you give it some water and you're off to the races. There's also this idea that you might use living breaks in your walls to purify the air. You could just make surfaces that Harbor Bacteria to get them to do different jobs. You want them to do and one of those jobs. People are considering is to purify the air so get rid of any toxins in the air or contaminants or something like that. We write about a group from China in the US that started with the bacteria called Bacillus idolizes and that act curious secretes a protein. Once outside the body of the bacteria it links up with lots of other members of its own kind and creates a matrix that the bacteria then can live on and they use that to make what is called Biofilm. And there's lots of these biofilms out there in the real world. Bacteria colonize our teeth that way. That's how Schiphol's get colonies on them in this case the folks tweak this protein in order to bind different enzymes and they did two different things one. They bound an enzyme to this matrix. That makes the biofilm that breaks down a toxic compound and then they went on to show that it works. The enzyme remain viable in fact degraded that toxin and then they went one step beyond that no said okay well can we culture mix of bacteria that do more than one chemical job at a time so in this case they did a two step reaction to break down a pesticide and in that case in order to break it down the first bacteria had to do its job with one enzyme to do the first reaction and then a second bacteria had to generate another action to do a second job and that that works. It's the idea that you can create a mix of organisms to detoxify things that could be your environment. We talked about the bill environment. But now we're gonNA talk about the medical world to how might these engineered living materials work in medicine? One way in which that might happen is through the use of these biofilms again so another group that we write about from northeastern university in the US. But they're doing our engineering. A different matrix forming protein and it also helps bacteria form biofilms and in this case. They're getting it to bind the cellular lining of your gut in order to allow the bacteria which they're already many healthy kinds of bacteria that help line the gut. So what they're trying to do is for patients with inflammatory bowel disease in which part of that lining breaks down and can cause painful ulcers there trying to restore that by making a a natural environment conducive for these bacteria to then go in and set up a new biofilm to offer protection for people with the disease so you would introduce. He's engineered bacteria that are really good at making a biofilm correct. You can also engineer bacteria to work inside materials to do other things so we write about another example where researchers at MIT have come up with a way to three D print. Bacterial spores so spores are the doormat form of a of a bacteria and so they put these a three D. Printer. They print them onto a plastic matrix. Under the right conditions. The spores germinate new bacteria. Those bacteria then engineered to synthesize and antibacterial compound which fights microbe called staph aureus which is a dangerous hospital infection so in that case you could have materials designed to sort of perpetually fight off. Hospital acquired infections sell like a self disinfecting surfaces for hospitals. Potentially that's kind of the way it's going. I WanNa just add a little note here at the end about regulation so most of this stuff is probably not gonNA fall to the Food and Drug Administration or the EPA regulate but are there some areas that might need to have some oversight when it comes to engineering engineered living materials the way that most researchers in the field are thinking about it. They're they're trying to keep all this in mind. All other regulatory issues in mind as they begin these experiments if you have for example are making bio cement in which you're using natural organism. There's not really a problems with that from regulators going forward. Because you're not doing anything. Nature doesn't do already. It's really just the question of are you going to be introducing an engineered organism into the environment. And in that case there will certainly be scrutiny from regulators and the FDA is perhaps the example. Where if you're doing something that might have a medical use there's already a very well trodden system. Set up to regulate foods and medicines and drugs so I think people are pretty comfortable with understanding how that regulation is going to roll out but for example. If you WANNA make engineer walls that talks the air. It's less clear how the process it's GonNa unfold to to get some of those technologies approved
How Did White House Press Briefings Go From Daily to Done?
"Brain. GRAINSTUFF Lauren Bogle bomb here in January of Twenty Twenty bestselling novelist Stephen King and Don winslow took to twitter to make a surprising pledge. They offered to donate two hundred thousand dollars to charity. If Stephanie Grisham the Press Secretary for President Donald Trump agreed to take questions from the full White House. Press Corps for one hour. You're in the White House. Press briefing room. The offer reportedly was rejected by Grisham. WHO's since taking the job in June of two thousand nineteen has yet to hold even one former former White House press briefing? Her views expressed an interview with these sinclair. Broadcast Group is that the briefings are unnecessary because reporters get opportunities to put questions to trump himself sometimes over the roar of the presidential helicopter on the White House lawn for the time being at least the trump administration has abandoned what had been in an important part of White House. Press Corps is routine dating back to the late eighteen hundreds before the official position of White House. Press Secretary even existed. That's when President William McKinley. Kenley set up a workspace in the White House for reporters and sent his first personal secretary. John Addison Porter to give the correspondence what the White House Historical Association notes. where I'm I more or less regular briefings? The White House press briefing gradually evolved into a formal event from the time of president. Herbert Hoover in the late nineteen twenties and early thirties. He's to Linden Johnson's tenure in the mid to late sixties White House press secretary's held twice a day briefing sessions in their own offices according to Martha Joint Kumar Book managing the president's message the White House Communications Operation Richard Nixon though no fan of the press still thought the briefings were important enough that he had a swimming pool torn out so that he could convert the space into a meeting room for briefings. That area is now known as the James S. Brady press briefing room in honor of president. Ronald Reagan's press secretary who was seriously wounded during the attempt. On Reagan's life in Nineteen eighty-one during Bill Clinton's time in the White House in the nineteen nineties. Press Secretary Mike. McCurry decided to allow the daily press briefings to be televised that practice continued until the trump white house began barring cameras from briefings in two thousand seventeen before discontinuing them altogether. Oh we spoke by email but former C. N. N. White House correspondent Dan Lowthian who spent five years covering the Bush and Obama administrations. He said I think the briefings were useful full for a number of reasons. First of all it was an opportunity to get the White House response or thinking on an issue on camera rather than a written statement it allowed us to gang up on them around a question they might have been trying to avoid showing them dodge. An answer is sometimes the news briefings also put statements on the record for later. Comparison finally finally every now and then there would be breaking news and as happened after Osama bin Laden was caught lots of great details even if some turned out not to be true. Lowthian Dan who went on to found little park media and to become a visiting scholar at the School of Journalism at Northeastern University recalls that the format for the briefings was fairly constant. He said there was a certain order to who got called on briefings always started with the Associated Press and ended with a thank you from the Associated Press once in a while the press secretary would mix it up a bit but it usually happened around the same time each day and questions from the first two rows came in order. We also spoke by email with Tom. Tom Jones a senior media writer for the POYNTER Institute. A journalism education organization. He said while it's true that the president and his representatives often make themselves available bowl in informal settings such as the White House lawn. It's not the same as press. Briefings the format of shouting out questions under the sound of a whirling helicopter is not conducive to asking complicated policy questions nor pertinent. Follow up questions. The frenzied free for all of these much too brief informal interviews make it much harder to get into the topics. What's that require nuance and specifics? It's so much easier for the president to brush aside or ignore questions. He doesn't like when he's walking along the White House grounds when he or one of his representatives representatives are standing behind a podium a controlled setting they must face the questions that require long substantive answers as opposed to the one or two short sentences that suffice in those informal formal settings let view essentially is shared by a group of thirteen former White House press secretary and Foreign Service and military officials who published an opinion in peace on. CNN's website in January of twenty twenty calling for trump to restore the regular briefings in their view. Having to prepare for briefings helps the government to run better letter. They wrote the sharing of information known. As official guidance among government officials and agencies helps ensure that an administration speaks with one voice telling one story however compelling it might be Lowthian also sees the apparent end the briefings as unfortunate. He said it's a valid criticism that some reporters others use briefings to showboat. However I think when covering the White House briefings aren't important function that allow the public and reporters to maintain daily connections? Sometimes it's routine information other times. An odd question from the back of the room can turn into the story of the day even so Lowthian says journalists who cover the the administration will find a way to get stories he said this new normal might be unfortunate but not paralyzing. Reporters are in the business of getting information whether it comes from the mouth of his spokesperson or sources all across the beltway.
