first_img All the cool new gadgets at CES 2019 Angela Lang/CNET Smart mirrors are popping up everywhere at CES 2019 and Capstone Connected Home is jumping in the game with a Google Assistant-enabled model. The touchscreen mirror allows you to download apps from the Google Play store, stream YouTube and ask Google Assistant anything you would in a standard smart speaker. You can also compose emails and messages by typing directly on the mirror. Voice control in the mirror can recognize six different voices and log users in and out of Google accounts. The company says this method still keeps user data private. The mirror does require the Capstone Connected Control Hub. The hub is also a touchscreen device, like a tablet, that acts as the command center for the mirror. You can hang the Capstone Smart Mirror or stand it up on a counter. The mirror will be available in multiple sizes, beginning with a 19-inch by 22-inch model in early 2019. Pricing information is not yet available.  Google Assistant CES Products Google CES 2019 0 Share your voice Post a comment Tags 85 Photos CES 2019: See all of CNET’s coverage of the year’s biggest tech show.

first_img UN chief urges India & Pakistan to exercise ‘maximum restraint’ on Kashmir, recalls Simla agreement The tweets have no local content, which normally should have been available to a Kashmiri present on the ground.IANSDespite the communications lockdown in Jammu and Kashmir since August 4 night, the Twitter handle of Hurriyat hawk Syed Ali Shah Geelani has apparently been active, putting out anti-India tweets regularly.Tweets from the handle @sageelani_ were largely in praise of Pakistan and Major General Asif Ghafoor, the Director-General of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR). The earlier Twitter handle @sageelani was suspended in June for its vitriolic anti-India and separatist content.The current handle has been active on a daily basis, and there is every likelihood of it being handled from across the border. The handle reflects Pakistan’s current thinking regarding the events in Kashmir after the revocation of its special status.The tweets have no local content, which normally should have been available to a Kashmiri present on the ground.Take for instance an August 4 tweet. It says “#IndiaUsingClusterBombs Pakistan we need your help!! #KashmirUnderThreat”. Pakistan alleged that India had used cluster bombs on its civilians living along the border that day. The tweet is a give-away that the handle is being managed by the ISPR, the media wing of the Pakistan Armed Forces.The handle specifically eulogises and thanks Asif Ghafoor, who is the head of the media wing. The ISPR is known to run fake pro-Kashmiri and anti-India handles to keep the separatist fire burning among the people of the valley.Separatist hawk Geelani is known not to run his Twitter handles. His earlier account, now suspended, was run by the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC).Geelani was put under house arrest, as numerous other separatist leaders, ahead of revocation of Article 370 that gave special status to Kashmir, and division of the state into two Union Territories — J&K and Ladakh.

first_imgBihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar (L) visits Shri Krishna Medical College and Hospital (SKMCH) as more than 100 children lost their life due Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) in Muzaffarpur on 18 June 2019. Photo: AFPTen more children died Tuesday from a mysterious brain fever potentially linked to lychees, officials said, taking the death toll to 113 this month and sparking angry protests in India’s poorest Bihar state.Sixty children, mostly under the age of 10 and malnourished, are undergoing treatment after an outbreak of Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) in Muzaffarpur district of the eastern state.Bihar health department official Ashok Kumar Singh told AFP that ten children died on Tuesday, taking the overall death count in June to 113.“Six children were discharged after being treated for AES,” Singh said.He warned that the toll may rise with fresh cases trickling-in, as dozens undergo treatment in packed hospital wards. Television images showed several children to a bed.On Tuesday, dozens of people gathered outside the main hospital in Muzaffarpur to accuse local authorities of acting too slowly and of not caring.The state’s health minister came in for particular criticism after asking reporters about the score in India’s cricket match against Pakistan on Sunday during a news conference on the crisis.“Bihar’s Health Minister Mangal Pandey seems more worried about cricket score than the death of children,” tweeted Randeep Surjewala of the opposition Congress party.Rabri Devi, another opposition figure, called the deaths “cold-blooded murder”.“Children are dying because of a lack of medicines and treatment,” she tweeted.Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar Tuesday faced angry protesters as he made his first visit to the state-run Sri Krishna Medical College, where most of the children have died.Reporters were barred from entering the facility, and the families of sick children were kept away from the premises.Outbreaks occur annuallyThe disease sets in rapidly and is characterised by plummeting blood sugar, high fever, convulsions and paralysis. It is caused by viruses, bacteria and toxins spread in different ways.Outbreaks have occurred annually during summer months in the same districts since 1995, typically coinciding with the lychee season.Apart from 2014 when a record 357 children died in the state, the annual death toll is usually much lower.Several years ago US researchers said the brain disease could be linked to a toxic substance found in lychees, the tropical fruit.They also said more study was needed to uncover the cause of the illness, known locally as Chamki Bukhar, which is fatal in a third of cases.The National Human Rights Commission has asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government and Kumar state authorities to report any “possible flaw” in implementation of vaccination and awareness programmes.An editorial in the Hindu newspaper Tuesday said the deaths could have “easily been prevented with some foresight and early care”.It said in 2014 an Indo-US expert team had saved 74 percent of sick children through a simple medical intervention.“It is appalling that this year the government failed to raise awareness on this strategy.”Bihar is one of India’s poorest states and home to almost 100 million people. It has also been hit by a heatwave in recent weeks with temperatures of 45 degrees Celsius (113 Fahrenheit) that has left 91 people dead since the weekend.Most of the children affected by the brain fever come from poor families who struggle to get even one healthy meal a day. Often the kids gorge on free-growing lychees on an empty stomach.last_img read more
