Rajasthan Royals Implement RightEye’s Advanced Dynamic Vision Technology to Improve Players’ Performance

Dynamic vision testing and training system aims to provide elite cricketers with competitive edge.

The Rajasthan Royals (RR), an Indian Premier League foundational cricket team, has adopted RightEye’s Dynamic Vision testing technology and Dynamic Vision Trainer to improve its players’ sports vision and gain a competitive edge that will differentiate the team from the rest of the pack.

Elite sports teams require their athletes to perform at the peak of their potential. Exceptional dynamic vision is critical for cricket players to excel in a sport that requires superior ball tracking, visual speed, and visual processing skills. The ability to see an object in space and understand how fast and where it is traveling is paramount for athletes’ success.

As the Royals prepare for the upcoming IPL season in Dubai, most players on the team have already been tested. “The fast-paced sport of cricket demands that our players have outstanding dynamic

Seven Ways To Improve Customer Experience With Technology

CEO of Rialtes Technologies, a global business consulting and cloud-based property management solution company headquartered in Austin, TX. 

The property management industry has traditionally been hyper-social. Although property management has been adopting technology over the past few years, the focus was primarily on accounting and reporting. But with the Covid-19 pandemic continuing to cast uncertainties, it is time to shift that focus toward leveraging technology to improve the customer experience.

So how can an industry like property management adopt technology and continue business while not compromising on customer satisfaction? As the CEO of a cloud-based property management solutions provider, I’ll outline several ways in which property management companies can leverage technology to improve their customer experience in an age of social distancing, along with some best practices for adopting new property management technologies.

A Seattle-based nonprofit launched to provide digital health solutions for poorer countries is applying its expertise to help with COVID-19 testing.

Audere is building software for administering rapid result COVID tests that can be integrated into products being developed by U.S. manufacturers that use saliva or nasal swab samples.

“There is a critical need for rapid testing,” said Philip Su, CEO and founder of Audere. People are increasingly realizing that the widespread distribution of a vaccine is still many months away. The availability of accurate, inexpensive tests that provide results in minutes can help control the spread of the virus in the meantime, Su said.

The tests — known generally as rapid diagnostic tests or RDTs — can have high rates of failure, though the basic concept is simple. Imagine

Playspace by Connatix Emerges as Key Technology for Publishers to Improve Engagement and Video Monetization | News

NEW YORK, Oct. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Connatix, the next-generation video technology company for publishers, announced today that multiple publishing partners have successfully integrated with the Playspace platform including AccuWeather, Gray TV, and The Washington Times. In June, Connatix launched Playspace as the first video monetization technology that creates relevant, editor-friendly formats with built-in revenue. 

Playspace makes it easy for publishers to boost their video revenue while enhancing the editorial experience by generating swipeable story units that feature content highlights from articles and videos. The platform was built with a video-first ad server and exchange to scale content and ensure maximum monetization. As part of the rollout, the Story Player – a key offering in Playspace – features an enhanced design based on reader engagement patterns, and a video revenue engine that was built from the ground up. Since launch, Connatix has grown publisher integrations by nearly

Use technology to improve governance – analysis

A memorable quote paraphrased from the Arthashastra by Kautilya goes: “It is as difficult to prevent a government servant from corruption as to prevent a fish from drinking water.”

This suggests that corruption is not a new phenomenon.The East India Company is known to have struggled to keep corruption in check. In fact, the problem of corruption in the social and political spheres has often come in for strident criticism.

This issue has triggered several measures aimed at enhancing integrity in public life – the enactment of the Public Procurement Bill, Lokpal Act incorporating, inter alia, the disclosure of assets by public servants and reforms in higher judicial appointments to name a few. While there are divergent positions in terms of strategies and focus areas, the one point of convergence is the unanimous acceptance that technology and e-governance promotes greater transparency.

It has been five years since the adoption

Silk fibers improve bioink for 3D-printed artificial tissues and organs — ScienceDaily

How do you test, in early-stage research, whether a potential pharmaceutical effectively targets a human tumor, organ, or some other part of the body? How do you grow a new hand or some other body part? Researchers are in the early stages of using 3D cell printing technology to make developments like these happen. A standard way — currently unavailable — to fix the cells in place after printing would help researchers avoid having to ‘reinvent the wheel’ in every new investigation.

In a study recently published in Materials Today Bio, researchers from Osaka University have used silk nanofibers obtained by mechanical disintegration to enhance the printing process without damaging the cells or cell assemblies. An attractive point of silk for this application is that silk is believed to be a safe material for humans. This development will help bring 3D cell printing research out of the laboratory and

Sea-level rise projections can improve with state-of-the-art model

Projections of potentially dramatic sea-level rise from ice-sheet melting in Antarctica have been wide-ranging, but a Rutgers-led team has created a model that enables improved projections and could help better address climate change threats.


A major source of sea-level rise could come from melting of large swaths of the vast Antarctic ice sheet. Fossil coral reefs jutting above the ocean’s surface show evidence that sea levels were more than 20 feet higher about 125,000 years ago during the warm Last Interglacial (Eemian) period.

“Evidence of sea-level rise in warm climates long ago can tell us a lot about how sea levels could rise in the future,” said lead author Daniel M. Gilford, a post-doctoral associate in the lab of co-author Robert

Precariously-balanced rocks are helping to improve earthquake hazard predictions

Precariously-balanced rocks are helping to improve earthquake hazard predictions
Precariously-balanced rocks are helping to improve earthquake hazard predictions

Precariously balanced rocks, or PBRs, can be found throughout the world, identified by slender rocks balanced on a pedestal boulder.

There are a few ways they can form. PBRs can be the result of landslides or retreating glaciers, which deposit the rocks in the unordinary formations. They can also manifest when softer blocks erode, leaving the stronger ones behind.

While they look delicate, some of them — like the Brimham Rocks in Yorkshire or Chiricahua National Monument in Arizona — have survived countless earthquakes over thousands of years. Now, researchers from Imperial College London are taking a closer look at PBRs, because they are showing promise in helping scientists determine earthquake hazards more accurately.

The study’s authors say the construction of PBRs provides insight on the upper limit of earthquake shaking that has occurred in the area.

It’s this information that
