Walmart has partnered with the Oak View Group, a sports entertainment facility promoter, to become the big box retailer of 21 arenas across the US.The agreement is for three-years and said to be worth $40m, according to the Sports Business Journal.This new partnership will be shaped around a program called Walmart Community Playmakers.Through this program, local residents will be honored for their work in education, fighting hunger and the environment, among other causes.The arenas will feature these “playmakers” during at least 15 games throughout the NBA and NHL seasons.“This is the first step for Wal-Mart into this space,” said Dan Griffis, co-owner of Oak View Group and head of Narrative, OVG’s sales agency, to SBJ.

T-Mobile has announced the rollout of its Scam ID and Scam Block services, which let subscribers know if an incoming call is likely to be a scam.Such a feature is particularly welcomed during tax season, a time when scam calls are plentiful, and it also helps protect particularly vulnerable groups who are often targeted by such scammers.The features are being given to T-Mobile customers for free.Scam calls are, unfortunately, all too common.These calls may involve someone impersonating a hacker or a government agency, teams of people pretending to be a bank or business, and more.The elderly are often targeted by such scams, though everyone is vulnerable.

A four-year-old boy in a Londonförort saved the life of his mother.She sackade together in the family home and the boy locked up mom's phone with the touch id, which he had learned, opened Siri and called an emergency call.He had also learned his own home address, which helped the ambulance to find the right faster, and the medics managed to break into your home and revive the mother who then was taken to hospital and has survived, reports 9 to 5 Mac.Ade Adelekan, head of the Metropolitan Police Command and Control Unit that handles the emergency calls in the london area, said in a statement that the boy's crafty intervention shows how important it is to teach young children their address and how to make emergency calls.

Inom fem år beräknas det finnas någon form av system för röststyrning i 90 procent av alla nya bilar, enligt det amerikanska analysföretaget IHS Markit.Trenden har anammats av många olika biltillverkare, och en av dem är Ford, vars ingenjörer är strängt sysselsatta med att ta fram empatiska bilsystem.Exempelvis att mmi:t känner av den brustna tonen när du gråtandes försöker navigera till närmaste Mcdonalds, och således sätter på en lite muntrare låt på Spotify eller anpassar belysningen efter ditt humör.– Vi är på god väg att utveckla en empatisk bil som kan muntra upp dig eller ge dig råd när du behöver det, hålla undan alla onödiga problem när du är stressad, påminna dig om födelsedagar och hålla dig alert under långkörningar, säger Fatima Vital på Nuance Communications, som hjälper Ford att utveckla röststyrning av infotainmentsystemet SYNC, i ett pressmeddelande.Ford, som tidigare uttalat att man vill ha en självkörande bil på vägarna år 2021, har alltså flera spännande järn i elden.Men redan i sommar kommer de första Ford-ägarna att kunna koppla upp sig mot infotainment-systemet SYNC 3 via Amazons Alexa, som då ska ha stöd för röstkommandon på svenska.

London (CNN)A day after Londoners were confronted with a cruel and ruthless attack, crowds gathered in the heart of the city to pay tribute to the victims.Just a few minutes away from the scene of Wednesday's carnage, helicopters circled above Trafalgar Square -- a location for protests, celebrations and rallies, but increasingly the site of impromptu vigils in the wake of recent terror attacks in Europe.With the work day done, hundreds slowly trickled into the square and together with the Mayor, the Home Secretary, members of the police and figures from several religious communities they projected a display of solidarity and defiance to the world."We come together as Londoners tonight to remember those who have lost their lives and all those affected by the horrific attack yesterday.Four homeless street artists sketched colorful messages of solidarity on the stone slabs in front of the National Gallery."Normally I come out with money on my mind, but today I came to spread the message that we are not afraid.

After a number of unrealistic stories about Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump went viral, the world learned about sites set up to spread misinformation - and in the process, make money through advertising.The problem, of course, is far from over.And because programmatic advertising serves impressions to large audiences automatically, these fake news sites can take advantage of the system, tapping into revenue that would otherwise go to legitimate outlets.Google and Facebook have been especially hard hit, since their algorithms predict what people want to see, resulting in a “bubble” where certain groups only get a partial view of the world.Caught off guard by this phenomenon, the advertising industry is feeling the heat.Media buyers, of course, want to ensure their ads get seen by as many people as possible, but they don't want to finance junk websites, much less have their brands associated with such a divisive issue.

Researchers at Vanderbilt University have found a secondary set of odour sensors on female malarial mosquitoes that appear to be specifically tuned to sniff out humans.The modus operandi of the female mosquito is simple, yet effective: find a host, suck its blood, lay a batch of eggs.To find a host, female mosquitoes use their highly specialised odour sensors to detect traces of carbon dioxide exhaled by animals.As the insect gets nearer to a potential target, other scents exuded by the animal lets it know whether it’s a desirable host.For malarial mosquitoes, humans are prime targets; malaria and malarial mosquitoes have co-evolved, where the virus takes advantage of a unique component found in human blood that allows the disease to grow.After consuming her blood meal, the mosquito changes focus, and uses her sensitive sense of smell to search for stagnant water, where she lays her eggs.

Förra året meddelade Volvo att företaget utvecklar två renodlade elbilar, en större och en mindre, som ska släppas 2019.Nu rapporterar Autonews att Lex Kerssemaker, Volvos USA-chef, har avslöjat ett prisintervall för den mindre bilen.I en intervju med tidningen under motormässan i Geneve sa Kerssemaker att bilen kommer ha ett grundpris på mellan 35 000 och 40 000 dollar – cirka 400 000 till 450 000 kronor med moms.Räckvidden ska bli ”minst 400 kilometer”.Kerssemaker påpekar att det är långt mycket mer än vad som är nödvändigt för den som pendlar till jobbet, kör till mataffären och gör andra ärenden, men att kunder helt enkelt inte känner sig trygga med mindre.
