In the 15 years he’s been teaching, high school literature teacher Jude Mirambeau has never faced a school year like the past one. In March, as the COVID-19 pandemic spread, his state of Florida, which is home to some of the largest school districts in the nation, shuttered its schools in an attempt to slow infections. Teachers shifted to “distance learning.” Mirambeau’s district, the Broward County school district, which has about 270,000 students, loaned out tens of thousands of computers to help get students access. He moved his lessons online, using educational software to assign his students work about Arthur… This story continues at The Next Web

Research shows that doctors who offer empathic and positive messages can reduce a patient’s pain, improve their recovery after surgery, and lower the amount of morphine they need. But it doesn’t mean that telling a patient something simple, such as “this drug will make you feel better,” will have an effect. It’s more complicated than that, as our latest research shows. Positive messages are usually repeated, definite, specific, and personal. They should also be communicated by an authority figure who shows empathy (see graphic below). While our study does not identify what the most effective components of a positive message… This story continues at The Next Web

my contemplations about the significance of having a compelling land site working for your business (regardless of whether it's to purchase, selling, or basically gathering leads).There are a variety of approaches to make a site – some of them are simple, and others take a ton of work.For most land speculators, there's a Major premium on accommodation and convenience called investor carrot– on the grounds that let's be honest, we're not web designers, coders or software engineers.It is difficult to track down the hours expected to make a gorgeous AND useful site.In case you're searching for the least demanding approach to manufacture a site – there are a couple of helpful choices available today, and one of the stages I've been catching wind of significantly in the course of recent years is called InvestorCarrot.This is a membership administration that permits clients (explicitly – land financial specialists) to rapidly and effectively construct sites to purchase properties, selling properties, fabricating a purchasers rundown and marking their organization (in addition to other things).InvestorCarrot has been developing like Insane starting late, and despite the fact that this is one of the more expensive membership administrations I've seen available, there's a motivation behind why a great deal of speculators are utilizing them.In addition to the fact that they make it simple to fabricate sites that look astonishing, yet they likewise permit clients to cause some one of a kind customization to the look and to feel of their locales (counting the accommodation structures) without knowing any code and without working around any prohibitive settings.They likewise spend significant time in the Web optimization, execution and return for capital invested parts of web advancement, so in case you're attempting to discover compelling approaches to construct your online believability AND drive much more traffic and entries through your site, they have a great deal of inherent assets accessible to do only that.How it FunctionsThis previous week, I chose to try InvestorCarrot out to perceive how it functioned.Like I said… it's not the least expensive choice available – but rather in case you're searching for a pleasant blend of simplicity and adaptability, this framework appears to offer a decent equalization of both.Different preferencesSomething I truly loved about InvestorCarrot was the measure of data and alternatives to browse while making a site.Investor carrot work area designAt the point when you make another webpage, it as of now comes pre-populated with a liberal measure of existing substance, which not just makes the activity simpler for you (since you don't need to make up a lot of data yourself, you can essentially alter what's now there), however it additionally includes a great deal of "Website optimization juice" to your online space, making it simpler for web indexes to file your website and begin sending natural traffic your direction.Investor carrot portable arrangementThe locales are additionally portable responsive, which implies they'll generally look great on any gadget.It's additionally simple to incorporate investor carrot site with your current internet based life records and rundown building administrations (like MailChimp, Aweber, and Consistent Contact).I think this is somewhat on the grounds that their framework offers a variety of alternatives for modifying your site, and these additional capacities give you more stuff to filter through… which at last makes it marginally more unwieldy to focus in on the particular highlights you need to include, expel or change.To be reasonable however, I've really observed this with other programming in the past as well (and even in the production of my own participation site), where usability can turn into a twofold edged blade.So as to cause the general procedure to feel less complex for the client, you need to give them less control (like the capacity to make and redo your own structures, for instance).In case you're hoping to construct a purchasing site or a lead age site (the sort of stage that gathers a great deal of explicit data from guests), this will truly prove to be useful.As a land financial specialist, there are some quite certain snippets of data I have to get from the individuals who present their data on my webpage, and with an assistance like InvestorCarrot, I can modify the hell out of the accommodation structures however much I might want – and for my situation, this ability is an absolute necessity for a purchasing site.
The Juno spacecraft orbiting Jupiter just revealed mechanisms driving mammoth storms in the Jovian atmosphere. Storms on Jupiter form ammonia-rich hail — called mushballs — in the atmosphere of the giant planet, new research reveals. Investigators believe these tempests play an important role in regulating the Jovian atmosphere. Shallow lightning is seen by the Juno spacecraft emanating from clouds rich in ammonia. Large quantities of ammonia normally found in the atmosphere of Jupiter can be captured within these mushballs and fall into the depths of the massive world.

Coronavirus lockdowns have led to a massive reduction in global emissions, but there’s one area where energy usage is up – way up – during the pandemic: internet traffic. Data-intensive video streaming, gaming, and live streaming for business, university, and school classes is chewing up energy. Estimates can be notoriously difficult and depend on the electricity source, but six hours of streaming video may be the equivalent of burning one litre of petrol, due to emissions from the electricity used to power the data centres which deliver the video. In fact, the energy associated with the global IT sector –… This story continues at The Next Web

Cloud giant Salesforce is said to be looking to acquire a company that specializes in robotic process automation, or RPA, technology that helps businesses automate common and repetitive computer tasks. The move would help boost Salesforce's position in the cloud applications market, at a time when the tech giant is going through a period of slower organic growth, partly due to the coronavirus crisis. We checked with analysts on the RPA companies that could be potential acquisition targets for Salesforce. Here are the 10 possibilities they mentioned: Click here for more BI Prime stories. Salesforce, like other enterprise software companies, has so far seemed to weather the pandemic better than those in certain other sectors. However, the cloud software giant is still being cautious, and in May cut its full-year revenue targets from $21 billion down to $20 billion. That would show revenue growth of 17% from a year prior, as opposed to the higher 23% it was aiming for, which would in turn show some of Salesforce's weakest growth in recent memory. Over the last few years, Salesforce has turned to large acquisitions — like Tableau and MuleSoft — to help meet its ambitious growth targets. It has also brought several smaller names into the fold, like its most recent acquisition of Vlocity in February.  While CEO Marc Benioff said in February that he doesn't "anticipate any major acquisitions in the short term," he also described the acquisition of Vlocity for $1.3 billion as too good to pass up. And with the company forecasting a slowdown in organic growth, that could mean that another big acquisition is at least under discussion. "It would make sense that they would be looking for a pretty high profile acquisition, given that they had to adjust their revenue guidance, like every company did, because of COVID," said Dan Elman, an analyst with Nucleus Research. It would help Salesforce "recover the year" and boost their growth numbers in the long term, he added.  As for what kind of company Salesforce might like to actually buy, a hint may have come in the form of a recent profile of Benioff in The Information, in which an advisor to the company said that there's some interest in making a deal in the market for robotic process automation, or RPA. A Salesforce spokesperson said that the company doesn't comment on rumors or speculation.  RPA is technology that helps businesses automate the common, repetitive computer tasks, that are traditionally handled by human employees. It's a market where titans like Microsoft and its Power Platform compete with leading startups including UiPath and Automation Anywhere. Salesforce, for its part, has already been investing in RPA startups via its venture capital arm, even as it builds those capabilities into its core product. Analysts tell Business Insider that a heavier investment in RPA would be a smart move for Salesforce, which "is going to want to keep up and accelerate faster," said Dan Newman, an analyst at Futurum Research.  "It would definitely be a growth opportunity for Salesforce, enabling them to accelerate for customers, the bot capabilities that they've already made an investment in Einstein," said Rebecca Wettemann, an analyst at Valoir. Einstein is Salesforce's artificial intelligence tool, embedded in all of its apps.  The ultimate goal, is all about making customers stick around, Newman said. Business Insider asked analysts which RPA companies Salesforce might be eyeing for an acquisition, (with all private company valuations taken from PitchBook estimates, and market caps at the time of writing). Here are the 10 companies they thought would be a good fit:Automation Anywhere Valuation: $6.8 billion Why Salesforce would want to buy it: Automation Anywhere already has deep ties to Salesforce, beyond just the software integrations between the two. First off, Salesforce is already an investor in the hot startup, and led its $290 million Series B round in November. On top of that, Bill Patterson, Salesforce's executive VP of CRM applications, sits on Automation Anywhere's board.  Automation Anywhere's technology would complement, but not compete, with what Salesforce is already doing with its Einstein AI bots, said Valoir analyst Rebecca Wettemann. Also, Automation Anywhere has industry-specific automation capabilities, so it would complement Salesforce's current strategy in targeting sectors like finance, healthcare, and government. UiPath Valuation: $10.2 billion Why Salesforce would want to buy it: UiPath is one of the most popular RPA companies in the market right now, and has a sky-high valuation after a $225 million funding round in June. With all of the new funding coming in, investors will likely be looking for an exit soon, either by public offering or acquisition, Valoir's Rebecca Wettemann said. UiPath is also already a Salesforce partner, with integrations between their two products.  UiPath had a rocky 2019, when the company was forced to cut 400 jobs, around the same time its well-regarded CFO Marie Myers left the company. As of its new funding round, however, UiPath appears to be back on track. CEO Daniel Dines recently told Business Insider the startup is eyeing an IPO in early 2021. UiPath has raised $1.2 billion from investors, including Sequoia and Accel.    Pegasystems Market Cap: $9.21 billion Why Salesforce would want to buy it: Pegasystems makes tools for customer engagement and has a platform for business process automation and custom apps. Pegasystems is somewhat of a competitor to Salesforce because it also provides customer relationship management software. As a public company that's been around for over 35 years, it may not necessarily be looking to be acquired, some analysts note — but the fact that it is a leader in the RPA market and has a focus on CRM software could be attractive to Salesforce. Pegasystems and Salesforce do have some "competitive overlap" but it would enable Salesforce to expand its portfolio, said Futurum Research analyst Dan Newman. Like Salesforce, Pegasystems also focuses on industry-specific solutions, selling products into specific market verticals like finance or manufacturing. Blue Prism Market Cap: $1.25 billion GBP ($1.6 billion USD) Why Salesforce would want to buy it: Blue Prism is considered to be the pioneer of robotic process automation technology. Its chief technology evangelist, Pat Geary, is credited with first coining the term "robotic process automation." It's a publicly traded company, based in the UK, with about 1,000 employees and over 1,500 customers around the world.  Although it was an early player in the space, it has fallen off the conversation radar, said Futurum Research's Newman, but that's exactly why it could be a target for Salesforce. A deal could help highlight Blue Prism's lead in the space, while also giving Salesforce credibility by adding a very established company. Dan Elman at Nucleus Research agreed and said the software as a service model that Blue Prism operates under would fit into Salesforce well.      WorkFusion Valuation: $400 million Why Salesforce would want to buy it: WorkFusion creates intelligent process automation software that's powered by pre-trained bots, artificial intelligence technology and advanced analytics. WorkFusion "just sort of aligns with that Salesforce strategy of picking one of the leaders in the space and then buying out that established customer base and using it as a cross-sell opportunity," said Nucleus Research's Daniel Elman.  Its technology is often seen as competitive to Salesforce's Einstein AI bots, said Valoir's Rebecca Wettemann, but it does have pre-trained systems for financial service and insurance. "That would be attractive given Salesforce's industry solutions focus," she added, and definitely attractive to Salesforce's customers because of how simple the tools are to use.  Craig Le Clair, an analyst with Forrester and an RPA expert, also cited WorkFusion as a potential target for Salesforce, noting that the company has "a lot of depth in no document extraction and machine learning and text analytics." "WorkFusion is a strong company," he said. "They'd also be getting a really good book of business as well."   Appian Market Cap: $3.77 billion Why Salesforce would want to buy it: Appian does more than just RPA, but that is  just what could make it attractive to Salesforce, analysts said. Appian has an app development platform that helps users create apps without much code, automate mundane tasks for employees, and easily integrate with other business tools like Amazon Web Services, Salesforce, DocuSign and the like.  While Appian is not a big Salesforce partner, and doesn't have an app on the Salesforce AppExchange app store, a lot of customers use the two together, said Valoir's Rebecca Wettemann. "Appian has a lot of interesting industry-specific capabilities that would be attractive beyond RPA that accelerate time to value to customers and play into Salesforce's industry solutions capabilities," she said.  Similar to Salesforce, Appian also has an emphasis on company culture and social responsibility, which would make it a good fit in that sense as well, Wettemann said.  Apttus-Conga Valuation: Before their merger, Apttus was valued at $1.86 billion Conga at $715 million for Conga, but their combined valuation is currently unknown. Why Salesforce would want to buy it: Startups Apttus and Conga recently merged. Apttus makes software to help sales people generate quotes for potential deals, while Conga makes software to draft sales contracts. While Conga hasn't marketed itself as an RPA company, its overall set of tools includes the relevant technology. Notably, not only does the combined company already partner with Salesforce for product integrations — Salesforce Ventures as an investor in each of the two companies even before the merger. Salesforce buying it up, it would get not only the Apttus-Conga RPA tools, but also its specific products for salespeople. Digitech Systems Valuation: PitchBook does not list venture capital investors or a valuation for Digitech Systems. Why Salesforce would want to buy it: Digitech Systems primarily provides enterprise content management software, helping customers manage all of their documents, photos, and other information. Over the years, however, its product has grown to include RPA capabilities, to help share that information across other apps and services.  The main thing Salesforce could find attractive about the company is its partner ecosystem, said Valoir's Rebecca Wettemann. "They have intelligent automation, they have industry capabilities, but because they sell largely through partners, they have a partner ecosystem that's already implementing their capabilities, so could be a way for Salesforce to build out more implementation partners as well," she said.  Kryon Valuation: $132.3 million Why Salesforce would want to buy it: Kryon, which was founded in 2008, is based in Tel Aviv and New York. Analyst firm Gartner has praised its robotic processing technology's "strong capabilities around process/task discovery...based on captured keystrokes, mouse clicks, data inputs and outputs of business users." Kryon also has been named among the top RPA companies by IT Central Station, the professional IT review site. Forrester analyst Craig Le Clair said Kryon could be a good fit for Salesforce given the software giant's more customer-facing orientation and its heavy focus on customer support and services.   Antworks Valuation: PitchBook says that Antworks has raised $25 million in funding to date, but did not list a valuation. Why Salesforce would buy it: Antworks, a Singapore-based AI and automation company, has been attracting attention for its "intelligent automation software" used for extracting data and insights from documents. Craig Le Clair of Forrester said the company has "some really some good analytics around email management and combining with bots and so forth."  
As nightlife reduces to a simmer across the globe, a group of European club promoters, creatives, and technologists have banded together to create a virtual experience: "Club Quarantäne." The virtual nightclub boasts a 360-degree video dance floor and sets from DJs and artists across Europe.  Since its inception, the club has hosted three parties and about 700,000 visitors. And like the exclusive Berlin club scene it's based on, 40,000 people were turned away on its first night. In a time when people are feeling more isolated than ever, the project says it aims to bring a sense of community — and a little bit of humor — to even the loneliest on lockdown.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. What is it, exactly, that makes a club a club? Is it the music? The lights? The bouncer tending the line outside? The revelers you chat with while waiting for the restroom? Carlo Luis Ruben Schenk might know the answer. He's a promoter from the clubbing capital of the world: Berlin. And since nightlife has been reduced to a simmer across the globe, he's been part of a team creating a virtual club for hundreds of thousands of visitors. Club Quarantäne has been that digital sanctuary for clubless bacchants. The venue, which can be attended through any desktop web browser, boasts a 360-degree-video dance floor, with the thumping bass of a techno set and visuals that range from futuristic greenhouses to industrial tunnels filled with laser lights.  There's even a "line" outside, with a countdown clock to getting in. A virtual bouncer asks questions like, "Do you know who's playing tonight?" and "Are you already a supporter?" When asked if there were any right answers, Schenk smiled. "It's random," he said in an interview with Business Insider, adding: "It's also a joke about security guys and the night hosts in clubs. Sometimes it really feels random why you aren't chosen to get in." The site is full of tongue-in-cheek references to Berlin's nightlife. Schenk estimated that 40,000 people, or 30% of attendees, were rejected during the club's first night. The good news: They can always refresh their browser and try again. There has been no shortage of digital music festivals since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Behemoths like Tomorrowland and small local concerts have all gone online. With the exception of Travis Scott's impressive Fortnite concert, the technology is pretty much the same: a livestream of a performance and the occasional link to an official Zoom party.  But the Club Quarantäne team, which includes promoters, technologists, and creatives from across Europe, believe that clubbing is more than just watching a DJ set. Rather, the team says, it's about the unique space that's created by artists and strangers that are pulled together by music. In a time when people are feeling more isolated than ever, the project aims to bring a sense of community to even the loneliest on lockdown.  The project has set itself apart from other online festivals by diving headfirst into the virtual experience, taking lessons from video gaming to reconstruct a club online. Since its inception in March, it's hosted three parties — which can each last up to 40 hours — and 700,000 visitors.  "You can listen to the music, you can join a Zoom party, you can chat with people, you can watch the visuals, you can influence the visuals," Schenk said.  "There were different ways of gameplay," For one party, the team created a "drip button." The more the users collectively clicked, the more the visuals morphed. The team has future plans that include making visuals steam when more users enter the dance floor, and leveraging microtransactions to let users buy "trees" to fill a virtual field. There are also "bathrooms" where users can pick a color to serve as their avatar and message with people across the world. People from Detroit to Warsaw chatted and passed out Zoom links to video-chat parties, attendees said.  Music quality was a big part of the initiative, too. Schenk's team asked artists for clubby sets — upbeat techno, atmospheric music — the stuff you'd hear in a boiler room at 4 a.m. They said they wanted a high-quality stream that could cater to users with serious sound systems.  Danya Adib, a 24-year-old from Redwood Shores, California, turned up her subwoofer to listen from her bedroom in the Bay Area. She said she used to frequent San Francisco's electronic music scene. "I closed my eyes and for a second I felt like I was back," she said in an interview with Business Insider. The nightlife industry globally has been shut down and struggling since the pandemic began. Approximately two-thirds of Berlin's 140 clubs are now facing acute threats of closure, according to ClubCommision, a trade organization. Some well-known institutions like Tresor, Sage Club, and The Watergate have survived through government loans, but many others, especially smaller clubs, have fallen into heavy debt or closed permanently. Gretchen, a club in Berlin, accrued more than 50,000 euros in debt, according to The Wall Street Journal. Club Quarantäne is not affiliated with any particular nightclub. Entry to Club Quarantäne is free, but visitors can make donations at a virtual "bar" that's already raised 14,000 euros for charities like Seawatch, which rescues refugees in the Mediterranean, or racial justice organizations.  The team says it's planning to come out with a series of Pride events that focus on queer collectives around the world. In the long term, the team hopes to move beyond their own Berlin club scene, to help brands and artists of other genres throw unique virtual events. "We don't want to do something that just fills the gap until Covid is over. We want to create a new way of performing music in the internet," Schenk said. "It should not replace live music, but it should be a serious way of sharing your musical art."Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Why Pikes Peak is the most dangerous racetrack in America
This week, we saw a tech fight for the ages, as Epic baited Apple and Google to remove its 'Fortnite' app from their stores. They did, and Epic responded with lawsuits and a parody video that attacked Apple's stringent App Store policies. With Facebook also entering the fight, Apple appears to be running out of friends. The next few weeks will test just how tough its walled garden is. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. This was the week that tech went to war with itself – and it may be the beginning of a protracted, wide-ranging conflict. Epic Games, the maker of Fortnite, fired the first shot on Thursday when it deliberately violated Apple's App Store rules. On its face, the dispute is about the 30% app store fees that Apple (and Google) charge developers.  But the heated, at times surreal, spectacle that followed — including lawsuits, slick video propaganda, hashtag sneak attacks and pile-ons — points to a more complex web of conflicts, alliances and agendas. For years, Apple has capitalized on its ad-free business model to bludgeon Facebook and Google for their mishandling of user data. Now Facebook finally has an opening to press its advantage against Apple. Meanwhile Spotify, which has long argued that Apple's in-house streaming music service is inherently anti-competitive, has no choice but to now jump into the fray alongside Epic. It's no coincidence that all of this is happening against the backdrop of the Big Tech antitrust crackdown in the US and Europe. Antitrust however, is just one facet of a deeper destabilization shaking up the tech market.  As we've seen with TikTok and Microsoft's arranged-marriage talks, and President Trump's comments about taking a cut of proceeds, the tech market's traditional rules of engagement no longer seem to apply. Anything is possible, and that's a threat to established structures like app stores, walled gardens and revenue sharing pacts. There's a lot at stake, and all sorts of competing interests that are likely to emerge. Here's a look at where things stand in the early stages of what could turn into a tech industry upheaval. Epic set the trap It all started on Thursday when 'Fortnite' maker Epic Games announced it would introduce its own in-app payment system, circumventing Apple and Google's 30% fee. A few hours later, Apple pulled the app for its store, citing a violation of its policies. The problem for Apple: Epic knew this was coming. Just a few minutes after the app was pulled, Epic filed a lawsuit accusing Apple of anticompetitive behavior. It also launched a hilarious Easter egg-filled protest video which skewered Apple's famous 1984 advert and called on players to #FreeFortnite. It was a trap, and Apple walked right into it. Google soon followed – and so did a second lawsuit – although sadly Epic denied us the Google equivalent of Apple's 1984 parody. But the timing here was very deliberate. Just two weeks earlier, Apple CEO Tim Cook was summoned to Capitol Hill to defend against accusations that Apple was behaving in ways that stifle competitors. During that historic antitrust hearing, much of the attention on Apple focused on the App Store. With a co-ordinated series of moves, Epic was this week able to demonstrate just how much power Apple and Google hold, and how the 30% cut these companies take on in-app purchases . Facebook jumps into the fray It was also meant as a rallying cry, and soon other voices came to its defence. Spotify, never one to miss an opportunity to swing at Apple, took its shot by calling out Cupertino 's "unfair practices." As did Tinder. But things got more interesting on Friday when Facebook entered the arena. Apple, it said, had refused to reduce the 30% fee on a new paid feature, which Facebook argues could help small business owners during the pandemic. This wasn't the first time Facebook had aired grievances against Apple's App Store policies. Just a week ago, the social network finally launched its gaming app on iOS with a major caveat: users could only stream games, they couldn't play them. Like Epic, Facebook had been squabbling with Apple for a while. And like Epic, it now has another thing to point at to make the case that Apple is harming competitors.  Facebook attacking Apple in this way was a big deal. You should remember it was only two years ago that Apple was slamming Facebook over the Cambridge Analytica scandal. The problem for Apple, and possibly Google too, is that both are under huge antitrust scrutiny. And as Epic tries to rally the industry, Apple could also be running out of friends. Google keeps similar rules over app purchases, of course, but it's akso been more lenient. For example, Google also refused to waive that 30% fee on Facebook's app this week, but will allow Facebook to process payments through Facebook Pay. Apple said it won't. It's also because of Apple that the 30% tax became the industry norm – another reason why it's attracting so much fire. And with an industry of developers now turning against it and antitrust scrutiny hanging overhead, the next few weeks will show us just strong the walls around Apple's garden are. One thing is for certain: this war is far from over.Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: We tested a machine that brews beer at the push of a button

EA today revealed that it’s rebranding and consolidating its subscription service. Whereas before it operated under a few different names, now it’ll all be under a new banner called EA Play.

Up to now, the PC version of the service was called Origin Access, while the version on consoles was… This story continues at The Next Web

Brace yourself, Netflix, Disney+, etc. A new streaming service has come on to the scene. I don’t know about y’all, but I think we’ve got a real contender on our hands.
