Screenshot When Apple showcased the future of Messages at WWDC on Monday, many were surprised to see a relic of the internet's past.JibJab, one of the apps housed in the revamped Messages, allows users to add their face to an animated gif that they can text to their friends."We built the business on using the newest digital forms," Gregg Spiridellis, a former Wall Street banker who serves as JibJab's CEO, told Tech Insider.But the YouTube market soon got crowded.Enter Facebook and Apple JibJab's messaging efforts didn't really pay off until it partnered up with Facebook in 2015."Other messaging platforms are trying to create all the experiences in-house, but Facebook has empowered a global network of creators to build really amazing experiences for their users just like they did on the Web," he told the Tech Times.More from Tech Insider:Russian government hackers have been spying on private Democratic emails for about a yearThis is the biggest issue with the Apple Watch's new 911 feature AAPL 'Finding Dory' is funny and heartbreaking, but it's not better than the originalHere's how a vintage internet company ended up center stage at WWDCSweden wants to kill cash within 5 years, and it's getting really closeNOW WATCH: A neuroscientist explains why going to a chiropractor may be a waste of moneyLoading video...
"More or less, we all engage in some manner of cyber warfare these days, we just don't go to 'war' over it," Bradley Moss, a national security lawyer, told Tech Insider last month.It would be the digital addendum to what the US defines as an act of war in its legal code."This legislation would require the executive branch to define which of these actions constitute a cyber act of war, which would allow our military to be better able to respond to cyber-attacks and deter bad actors from attempting to attack us in the first place," Rounds said in a press statement.Unfortunately, the senator's office did not respond to repeated requests for an interview.Still, it's a sticky subject with no clear answers, as interviews TI has conducted with numerous experts reveal.Some have argued that any intrusion by a foreign state into a US network could be an "act of war" - for instance, the alleged Chinese hacking of the Office of Personnel Management; or there's the recent breach of the Democratic National Committee.While both of these breaches were allegedly carried out by foreign intelligence services that resulted in widespread data theft, there was little to no physical harm to come of it.And then there's also the flip side to that coin: Does the US want to define cyber warfare when it was most likely the one who used it for the first time against critical infrastructure.That is, the sophisticated Stuxnet malware that destroyed roughly one-fifth of Iran's nuclear centrifuges in 2009.There is some semblance of the Obama administration's mindset when it comes to cyber attacks that venture into the "warfare" realm.A document leaked by Edward Snowden and made public in 2013 listed cyber attacks resulting in "loss of life, significant responsive actions against the United States, significant damage to property, serious adverse US foreign policy consequences, or serious economic impact" as requiring presidential approval.Right now, a digital version of what would be equivalent to a sneak attack against Washington, D.C. simply does not exist."If we get much fuller definition of the range of things that occur in cyber space," Lt. Gen. Vincent Stewart, the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, testified to the Senate in February.More from Tech Insider:3 babies have been born with Zika-related birth defects in the USA shockingly common practice may be quietly fueling the opioid epidemicMcDonald's M McFlurry might soon go extinct — here's whyThis 2-in-1 thermos can store hot and cold drinks at the same timeThis crazy tiny home is only four feet wide and costs $499,000 — take a look insideNOW WATCH: A neuroscientist explains why going to a chiropractor may be a waste of moneyLoading video...

Whether we re spending our day in front of a computer screen in the office, watching Britain s Olympic hopefuls on TV or hunting for Pokémon on our smart phones, we are obsessed with the digital world.While most are aware of the impact the overuse of technology can have on our social lives, many people don t realise the effect it can have on our physical health too.As a chiropractor, I regularly see patients who are totally unaware that their digital infatuation could be the cause or the reason for their ongoing pain.Modern working habits are a particularly prevalent cause of back and neck pain.During long days in the office workers tend to forget their posture and hunch over the screen.Whilst technology use in the workplace is almost unavoidable for most people, there are ways in which we can reduce the strain that working places on our back.
Looking for a new job?You must love a sedentary job that keeps you glued to your computer.You must be willing to become at risk for developing neck, low back and hip pain, as well as, injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome from repetitive tasks.So it s critical that we pay attention to our posture in and out of the chair or bed, couch... and our workplace ergonomics.Unfortunately, our brains re-learn this flexion, distorted, C posture as normal and we become unconscious to repeating it day, after day.Of Course This Is Not Really a Job Description
In the wake of the Trump Administration s executive order banning entry to immigrants from seven nations with majority-Muslim populations – a ban that has been blocked for now by court order – and talk of additional crackdowns on immigration, I wondered what some of these immigrant entrepreneurs were thinking.My family didn t want me to come because you don t know what s going to happen in the next four days, said Islam, 35, a Bangladeshi immigrant and cofounder of NewsCred, a content-marketing company.But his real concern is ethics and fairness.If the list gets expanded to more countries, and Bangladesh gets added, it would have a devastating impact on us, he says.But while it certainly has a business impact, that is secondary.Manny Medina, 42, grew up in Ecuador and came to the U.S. in 1996 for college, getting a bachelor s at Stevens Institute of Technology.
An obviously male doctor in Kansas thinks that as an alternative to pesky and unseemly tampons, women should basically start gluing their vaginas shut.In case the word “glue” next to “vagina” didn’t already made this apparent, this is a very, very bad idea.Daniel Dopps is a Witchita chiropractor and the proud creator of Mensez, what he describes as a “feminine lip-stick” to help ladies combat heavy flow.But unlike lipstick, Mensez doesn’t just paint your vaginal lips a lovely shade of blush.Since debuting in January, the invention has attracted a fair amount of attention, including in popular women’s magazines.Dopps explained to Gizmodo that Mensez is a “natural combination” of amino acids and oils, to be applied during a lady’s time of month via a convenient lipstick applicator.

Find out how to optimize your website to give your customers experiences that will have the biggest ROI for your business.As someone who travels the country for a living, one of the questions I get asked is, “As a service professional, how can I get more clients without being pushy?”Because let’s face it: getting clients as a coach, consultant, speaker, lawyer, chiropractor or other service-related business can be especially challenging, simply by the fact that you don’t have a physical product to sell!You can smell it and taste it.You can see them, touch them and even try some on before you buy.Or better yet, how can Sally CPA engage you in a sales process that would make you consider hiring her services, without making you feel like you’re getting a hard sell?
In other words, as a coach, consultant, speaker, accountant, chiropractor or other "expert" service professional, we usually know so much stuff that it can sometimes be problematic for prospects trying to figure out how to best work with us.As an example, let's say you're a consultant who talks to businesses about leadership.During the meeting you're asking good questions, getting a feel of the situation, and determining how you might be able to help.Door number one has you talking about all the great things you've done in the world of leadership: the degrees you've earned, the credentials you've garnered and all the accolades you've accumulated.Throughout your response, you talk in terms of theory and generalities on how with your training, ABC Company will be "better equipped to handle the challenges of an increasingly global economy."Maybe you bring up a couple more points, but at the end, the decision-maker seems a lot less interested in hiring you, and a lot more confused on how you can help.
An interesting story I heard years ago was about a local chiropractor who developed a relationship with the local mattress superstore.Every week, the mattress place would provide a list of all those people who bought a mattress—which meant they likely had some form of back pain which led to them buying new mattresses -- and he would reach out to those people, closing about 25 percent of them to become his patients.But, one week, he picked up the list, and reached out to the people on it, and closed a whopping three quarters, or 75 percent, of them as new patients at his practice -- three times what he usually closed off the mattress list!So he went to his friend in the mattress store and asked, “Hey folks, what was special about this week’s list?”Please help me figure this out."When you buy a mattress due to back pain because your old mattress has seen better days, and then get a call or postcard from a chiropractor, then even though you might still be in back pain, you are likely to feel, “I got a new mattress already, the pain will go away within a few days I’m sure.” Hence, you are less likely to want to see a doctor for your back pain.
We want to give referral fees to individuals who pass out our business cards and obtain new clients for us.Yet of all the key techniques for making the system work, this one seems to frustrate people the most.(And sometimes, they may even be illegal, depending on your profession and the state in which you practice--so consult your attorney before you offer them.)Here is an excellent example of a non-monetary incentive system:Years ago I went to my chiropractor for a routine adjustment.As I walked into the waiting room, I noticed a bulletin board that was displayed prominently on the wall.
For example, Doug Markham, a Los Angeles-based chiropractor and nutritionist, recently sent out a news release to dozens of radio and TV producers titled, "Eating Fat Does Not Make You Fat."In the following week, Markham received 25 phone calls, including one from CNN, and he's been booked for five radio interviews.Since Markham wasn't sure how to approach reporters, he turned to Paul Krupin, founder of Imediafax.com , a news release advisory service in Kennewick, Washington, for help.He was so successful promoting his new publishing business that others began asking him for help publicizing their own businesses.Whoever it is, make sure to spell the name and title correctly.Everything else is content and style."
The BackStrong chair is a weird mashup of two different chairs trying to go in separate directions.I’ve been using one for two weeks and I’m still not positive I’m doing it right, but my back hasn’t felt this good in years.This chair isn’t an upgrade over my current office furniture; it’s a different take on the very idea of what it means to be a chair.It came fully assembled, but I still spent a few minutes looking for an instruction manual – because I wanted some advice on how to sit in it.If he can do it, so could I – but it wasn’t easy going to begin with.The BackStrong chair was designed by a big-time chair designer and a well-credentialed chiropractor — and its Kickstarter page makes a lot of big claims.
It can be caused whenever someone is involved in a car accident with speeds as little as fifteen miles per hour, even if the parties involved were wearing a seatbelt.The condition can also be complicated to diagnose because the symptoms do not always show up right away.All of these situations can constitute whiplash but the more severe cases show up right away.As soon as you are injured and suspect a whiplash injury, get a diagnosis from an emergency room physician, a chiropractor or a regular doctor.A diagnosis is important to your car accident compensation solicitors because they need to see your medical records and diagnostic information in order to help decide if you have whiplash, if there was another negligent party and how much to file a compensation claim for.They will put you into a cervical collar and a long spine board and will transport you by ambulance to the nearest emergency room.You’ll often see an abrasion or bruising on the shoulder and upper chest because of the seat belt or because of an airbag injury.The doctor may remove the cervical collar and, if there is minimal tenderness of the back of the neck, he or she will check the range of motion of the neck, both passively and actively.
During a recent trip to the chiropractor, it occurred to me that technology vendors and marketers are way out of alignment when it comes to measuring the impact of marketing programs.Want to Read the Full Article?Subscribe to your choice of$100 off admission to select Adweek eventsEarly access to the Adweek podcast
