Frampton has four children; three with his first wife - a 15 year old girl, 13 year old twins, a boy and girl.When I first became a dad 15 years ago, it was all about Gina Ford and sleep training.I think you become a better leader by being a better father and you become a better father by being a good leader.They are task, not people focused.It’s something I didn’t do when I was younger, so in my first marriage, when we had kids, it became hard.My wife's world was focused on them, but my world was expanding with work, international travel and everything.
As a public service I’m putting up this post so when your parents message you with a warning about a hacker named “Jayden K. Smith” who “has the system connected to your Facebook account” you can easily retort with a well-argued piece of journalism.The Jayden K. Smith message is a hoax.No hacker “has the system” connected to your Facebook account and if you follow the instructions associated with the hoax and message all of your contacts then you have been duped.Again, I repeat, there is no hacker called Jayden K. Smith.He will not hack your Facebook.The only Jayden Smith that is even remotely dangerous is this tattoo of Jaden Smith on Impractical Joker Sal Vulcano’s haunch and even then it looks quite pleasant.
Maruti Suzuki has launched an integrated chatbot within a video ad banner, which will be on select platforms like Firstpost, ESPN and Times of India .Within the an ad format, it hopes to provide a user experience on video but adding an extra level of personalization with the chatbot.Isobar, as the digital agency, created this innovation as part of the launch campaign of car brand Dzire.The chatbot will also entertain user queries, thereby educating them about the new Maruti Suzuki Dzire and redirecting them to the main website and enabling a two-way communication with the relevant audience.Earlier, Microsoft rolled out chatbot Ruuh which wanted to connect with young people in India.New customer acquisition is the top priority for brands in 2017 and using chatbots should help Maruti to be bold and bring forward the renewed brand message and capture existing and new audiences’ interest.

first reported by Indian financial publication Mint.The infusion of capital comes in time to prepare Amazon India (officially named Amazon Seller Services Pvt Ltd) for the holiday shopping season, which centers around the Dussehra and Diwali festivals in the fall.Amazon India’s chief rival for the attention of online shoppers will be Flipkart, which raised $1.5 billion at a valuation of $11.6 billion three months ago from a noteworthy roster of investors including Amazon rival eBay, Microsoft, and Tencent.Another important competitor is Alibaba-backed Paytm.Amazon pumped $2 billion into its Indian marketplace in summer 2014 and launched Amazon Prime there last year, with annual memberships costing 999 rupees (about $15, though discounts are available for new members).Amazon India will run its first Prime Day on July 10, to coincide with the online shopping/promotional event’s timing in the U.S. and other markets.
Google could see more fines from European Union antitrust regulators this year as probes into its AdSense advertising service and Android mobile-phone software near their end, three people familiar with the cases said just a week after the company was hit with a record penalty for its shopping-search services.Both are at advanced stages, though the Android case may not be concluded until later this year, according to one of the people, who all spoke on condition of anonymity.Alphabet Inc’s Google is the EU’s highest-profile antitrust target, with probes on three fronts occupying regulators for as long as seven years.EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager has called 2017 her “G year” during which she would seek to nail decisions against the search-engine giant.Regulators are reportedly seeking expert advice in the Android investigation to check their case, a sign that they may be trying to test possible flaws in the case before moving toward a final decision.Vestager has set high stakes for Google to comply with an EU order accompanying last month’s 2.4 billion-euro (US$2.7 billion) penalty.
Black-legged ticks in forests of the Northeast and Midwest have a variety of options for the three blood meals they consume in their lifetime: In their earlier stages, the ticks feed on at least 41 species of mammals, from chipmunks to black bears, plus 57 species of birds and 14 species of lizards.These are the ticks that transmit pathogens that are harmful to humans, including the bacterium that causes Lyme disease.Ticks aren’t born with the pathogens that cause the main tick-borne diseases in humans; they get them from feeding on animals that act as reservoirs of the bacteria and parasites.And some researchers have noted that an abundance of the mice one year is linked to more Lyme disease in humans the next — suggesting that this relationship could matter a lot when it comes to reducing Lyme disease.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates the number of cases at about 300,000 per year.1That’s about 10 times higher than the number of cases that are reported; the CDC believes many cases fly under the radar.
Almost a year after the official unveiling of the Blade V7 and Blade V7 Lite models during MWC 2016, ZTE strikes back with the official announcement of their successor Blade V7 Plus, a device that offers some improvements over the previous models, aimed at novice users mainly.The device packs a fingerprint scanner on its back, along with a 2540 mAh battery and a -hmm somewhat obsolete Mediatek MT6753 SoC- with just 2GB RAM and 16GB of storage.The display size is 5.2 inches but if you check its Android version you’ll be disappointed to find Android 6.0 Marshmallow still inside, unfortunately.The ZTE Blade V7 Plus has a 13MPixels main camera positioned on its back with a LED flash and a 5MP selfie shooter in front.It’s already available in Platinum Grey and Iron Gold in Russia and Australia.
It’s no news that Samsung and Apple have been struggling with embedding the fingerprint scanner on the screen.But as it turns out, Vivo might be the first one to implement the technology.Vivo collaborated with Qualcomm to implement the technology.In the following video, it is evident that, as compared to the usual fingerprint scanners, the learning process on the on screen scanner takes longer.Mainly because the sensor below the screen needs to register the ultrasonic signals that pass through the OLED display.When it comes to using the scanner, it does take longer than usual scanners.
YouTube has refunded advertisers that removed their material from the video-sharing site after it was revealed paid-for clips appeared alongside extremist and illegal content.The Google-owned site has paid advertisers back the money it earnt on adverts played ahead of inappropriate videos as it works to recover its reputation.The recent payments are too minor to be compensation for the Google oversight and in some instances amount to as little as $3 (£2.30), according to the Financial Times.They are unlikely to boost YouTube's cause as it struggles to woo businesses back to its platform.The adverts of major brands including Marks and Spencer, L'Oreal and McDonald's were found to have appeared alongside hateful and violent videos.Marks and Spencer, the BBC, Channel 4 and the UK Government are among more than a dozen organisations that are still avoiding the platform.

About a month ago, word spread that Google had quietly launched a new fund for investing into AI companies.Other participants in this round include new investor Work-Bench, as well as current investors Madrona Venture Group, Rakuten Ventures and Osage University Partners.As Algorithmia founder and CEO Diego Oppenheimer told me, there was a lot of excitement for this funding round among VCs, mostly because the service enables other companies to easily make use of recent machine learning advances.“There are a lot of people coming to VCs and saying: We are AI for this — and we are AI for that,” he said.The back-end operations, the scaling.“They’ve built a secure and scalable marketplace for AI models that allows developers to openly collaborate.”

Reply threads on Facebook are about to get a lot more animated.To mark the 30th anniversary of the GIF format, all users will get the new GIF comment button that Facebook began testing three months ago.Facebook also announced that almost 13 billion GIFs were sent on Messenger over the past year, with 400 million GIFs sent just on New Year’s Day 2017.The GIF button lets people search and post GIFs from different services, like Giphy and Tenor, directly in the comments box (on desktop browsers, the GIF button also displays trending GIFs, just like in Facebook Messenger).Facebook added GIF support two years ago, but until now users had to enter the URL of a GIF hosted somewhere else.The GIF button makes the process a lot easier, especially on mobile.
"Finding someone to market an API is like finding a unicorn.They need the technical knowledge to understand the API in detail, the communication skills to explain it, and the salesmanship to say why it’s the best.No one seems to have a concrete system, either — developer evangelists are encouraged to “win the hearts” of the dev community."But getting people to use your API isn’t nearly as mysterious as it seems.Because they have such a strong community presence, developers can be even easier to connect to than general consumers.You just have to know where to look.
