BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

The German robot company Festo has so far developed a number of interesting prototype robots that resembled kangaroos, jellyfish, and more. One of the latest creations of this company is a bionic bird named BionicSwift, and it is truly impressive.BionicSwift is equipped with wings that imitate the plumage of real birds, as you can see in the video below, it is capable of flying safely like real birds and in a coordinated pattern in a defined airspace. The robotic “feathered” bird has a wingspan of 68 cm, a body length of 44.5 cm, and a weight of 42 grams. Inside the body, Festo has crammed the wing movement mechanism, as well as the communication technology and the controllers for flapping. There is also room for a brushless electric motor, two servo motors, a battery, the gear unit, and various circuit boards.The wings are made with “lamellae” (feathers) made from overlapping sheets of ultralight and flexible foam, but at the same time very robust. The individual lamellae fan out during the wing upstroke, allowing air to flow through the wing. This means the birds require less power to propel the wing upwards. And when BionicSwift flaps its wings down, they close to …

Stock imageIDAHO FALLS – As businesses reopen, employees and customers are participating in procedures to help protect everyone’s health. But as you take part in these steps, knowing how your information is protected is essential. Navigating this type of health management is uncharted territory for businesses, and while they are doing the best they can, most are charting their own course. “Safeguarding privacy is important for business,” said Better Business Bureau NW+P CEO Tyler Andrew. “Protecting personal information applies to both customers and employees and can be done in a way that also creates a safer place to work in the era of COVID-19.” Tracking and contact-tracing solutions are being considered and implemented throughout the country to help contain the spread of the coronavirus. High-tech solutions include smartphone applications that employees can download, which will track and store proximity data or use other means to determine location. If a user is diagnosed with COVID-19, data collected by the smartphone app can be used to trigger notifications to other employees (and outsiders) who have crossed paths (within six feet) with the infected person. While tracing apps are sophisticated, not all employers want or need such technology. Businesses are being encouraged …

The second robot having only recently been installed is allowing Brian to increase his cow numbers further. Cows are housed all year round and three cuts of quality silage are made every year.Silage quality is paramount to the McClure’s philosophy of maintaining healthy, efficient and productive cows averaging 10500lts.Matrix Animal Health sales agent for Co.Antrim, Robert Shannon chatted to Brian this week to see how he was getting on with the Healthy Udder Boluses.“We were having quite a few problems keeping cases of clinical mastitis under control and had been using an awful lot of antibiotics with varying success,” said Brian.“This lead to the financial implications of lots of wasted milk, as well as a constant fear of contaminating the milk. “ I have also been very concerned over the potential for antibiotics to get into the food chain and believe that farmers as food producers play a major role in the fight to combat this.“I was talking to a friend who recommended I would try the ‘Healthy Udder …

Source: Jerry Hildenbrand / Android CentralWe all tend to equate security with privacy. I’m not talking about public security, where there is debate over encryption and why Apple and Google won’t just hand everything over to the FBI, I’m talking about our personal digital security.Security is really an easy subject to understand once you break it down to its core: your electronic devices — whether they be a phone, a laptop, a smart doorbell, or anything else — should only be operable and accessible by you. If I can pick up your phone and rifle through its contents or see the video your Ring Doorbell collects, something, somewhere isn’t secure.It could be as simple as you haven’t used any available tools to set up personal security like a lock screen on your phone, or it could be an existing exploit that allows me to connect remotely. In the end, all that matters is that if I can get into your stuff, it’s not secure.Security is easy to understand if you break it down: only you can use or access your digital devices.Privacy is a bit different.

DeChambeau confronts cameraman, bemoans lack of privacy

Bryson DeChambeau confronted a cameraman on the course Saturday during the third round of the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit for capturing his angry reaction after a bad shot.According to the Golf Channel’s Will Gray, DeChambeau was “running a little hot,” complaining that the cameraman was following him too long and that capturing his reaction could damage his image. Further, DeChambeau said golfers are entitled to “have our times of privacy” on the course.After a poor bunker shot on No. 7 at Detroit Golf Club resulted in a bogey, DeChambeau had a “testy discussion” with the cameraman on his way to the tee box at No. 8, according to Gray.”I mean, I understand it’s his job to video me, but at the same point, I think we need to start protecting our players out here compared to showing a potential vulnerability and hurting someone’s image. I just don’t think that’s necessarily the right thing to do,” DeChambeau told reporters after his round. “As much as we’re out here performing, I think it’s necessary that we have our times of privacy as well when things aren’t going our way. I mean, we’re in the spotlight, but if somebody else is …

Bryson DeChambeau hits his tee shot on the 9th hole at Detroit Golf Club on Saturday.

Bryson DeChambeau had just over 19 feet to the pin on his third shot on the par-5 7th hole at Detroit Golf Club. He blasted his ball out of the sand. It went 19 feet past the hole. 

CBS viewers saw the 38-foot journey. 

They didn’t see what was happening back at the start. Nor should they have, DeChambeau said.

DeChambeau, according to the Golf Channel’s Will Gray, “took a Sergio slash” at the bunker during the third round of the Rocket Mortgage Classic, a reference to Sergio Garcia’s bunker blowup during the 2019 Saudi International, in which Garcia took four swipes at a bunker after hitting his ball out. On Saturday, the CBS camera showed DeChambeau’s swing and the ball’s path, then paused for a brief second while panning back to the bunker – likely when DeChambeau was showing his frustration – before continuing back to DeChambeau, who was out of the bunker by that point.

Gray photographed DeChambeau talking to the cameraman when DeChambeau was finished with the hole. DeChambeau said after his round he believed …
