But with more of us traveling by air — especially with the upcoming summer season, when a record 220 million-plus travelers are expected to fly — we can expect things to get worse before they get better.Last month, in Chicago, 450 American Airlines passengers couldn t make their flights due to security wait times.It s so bad that American Airlines plans to hire security staff at its major hubs to relieve TSA agents from nonessential duties.Besides an increase in travelers and a decrease in personnel — due to budget cuts and other missteps — the TSA said more carry-on bags at security checkpoints and more robust screening have also contributed to the long lines.It plans to hire more than 700 agents, increase overtime, and utilize bomb-sniffing dogs.Some experts recommend you just stay calm and carry on, but it doesn t help when you re still stuck in line and you have to board a plane in the next half-hour.

As the Chinese economy has boomed in the last decade, millions of people have entered the middle class.China, it seems, is in the midst of a workout craze — and that represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for venture investors to back emerging health and wellness technology companies.In particular, China s vast millennial population of young people aged 18-35 — more than 385 million strong — is hitting the gym, running marathons, participating in exercise classes and playing and watching sports in record numbers.This generation, the first to grow up in the new capitalistic China, wants far more from life than their parents did.China s highly educated, internet-savvy, global-traveling young people want it all — and that includes being fit.Though that falls short of the nearly $25 billion figure in the U.S., China s health and fitness industry is far younger and growing far faster.
Now consider the fact that nearly 1 million foreign students are enrolled at colleges and universities across the United States — a figure that has jumped 40 percent in the past decade.Adding to this — amid considerable debate over a STEM crisis in the U.S. — international students are pursuing studies in science, technology, engineering and mathematics in record numbers, which in turn is powering the U.S. tech industry.In 2016, 45 states hosted more international students compared to the previous year, with five states witnessing double-digit growth rates.Since the 1950s, the United States has been the destination of choice for foreign students seeking higher education.The rapid arrival of international students in the U.S. is coincident with the Great Recession, when public and private coffers tightened dramatically.Meanwhile, as a result of declining investments since 2008, tuition and fees at both two-year and four-year public institutions rose 28 percent.
The "Pokémon Go" phenomenon is real.Apple confirmed to Tech Insider Friday that the app had more downloads its first week than any other app in the App Store'sEven more impressive: "Pokémon Go" was only available in the US, Australia, and New Zealand that first week, so most of the world didn't even have a chance to download it.
As stories multiply about Pokémon-related robberies, engrossed gamers walking off cliffs and morbid discoveries, parents and law enforcement have begun to pay more attention to potential pitfalls of the wildly popular Pokémon Go.The Bay Area News Group decided to explore one such danger zone using the Megan's Law sex offender database.A Pokemon Pidgeotto is found in the parking lot of the Pleasanton apartment of a 46-year-old sex offender who was convicted of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under the age of 14.Angela Ruggiero/Bay Area News Group In the brief survey, reporters found the augmented reality game could lure players close to more than a dozen sex offenders' residences -- because of the proximity of both Pokémon creatures, which appear randomly and change locations, and so-called "gyms" and "PokéStops," virtual gameplay locations that are permanently affixed to real-world places and can attract large crowds.It's worth noting that many sex offenders, some with crimes dating back decades, already live near parks or schools where children congregate, popular phone app or not.On a recent Thursday, the block was swimming in creatures -- a purple Rattata here, a Butterfree there, less than 50 feet from the molester's apartment.As the Pokémon Go craze continues with record numbers of users, players cover more and more territory, venturing into the nooks and crannies of their own communities and other unfamiliar ones in search of Pikachus and Aerodactyls.

Companies are getting in on this new marketing avenue and are already reaping its benefits.Zipcar has started offering free rides to players of the hit augmented reality game, Pokémon Go, which has already made record numbers in terms of users and is expected to make Apple three billion dollars in the next one to two years.Coincidence?As more and more youth and adults are gravitating toward technology it was just a matter of time before such a feature which was usually only seen as "futuristic technology" could actually be used as an everyday, relatable technology.If you are looking to advertise with or utilize virtual or augmented reality in your business, there are a couple of things to know:Related Article: HR Technology is Changing Fast: 5 Things You Should KnowThe Profitability of Virtual and Augmented RealityBoth Virtual and Augmented Reality are considered similar but they both have their own qualities.Augmented Reality is able to literally get potential consumers into physical buildings, which is why it is a valuable marketing strategy.This is a great resource for physical brick-and-mortar stores.The difference with Virtual Reality is that a store can come to you.An example would be, when placing an order, customers can be transported in the privacy of their own homes to an actual store where they can actually see what they want to purchase and also be able to view more options which gives greater convenience.How You Can Use Virtual and Augmented Reality Communication: Meetings can become a more real experience even when long distance.The ability for interactive communication can be made even more precedence than other ways which are available.Collaboration: Being able to transport virtually to a given location will give users the ability to work together and also allow the ability to cooperate together.Visualization: Prototyping a product or space to where you can see it live before its actual creation will give users the ability to save time and resources especially if changes will be needing to take place.
On a single charge, the average consumer drone only nets about eight to 10 minutes of flight time.The solution is obvious: stuff a bigger battery into it.Problem is, the solution adds weight, which decreases flight time.It s the ultimate catch-22.Dr. Samer Aldhaher of the Imperial College London thinks he has the answer, kinda.Aldhaher created a prototype of a lightweight, battery-less drone that hovers in place and sucks power from a transmitter below.
Modern troubles like porn addiction and drug use are triggering a rise in the number of traditional remedies in the US, where skyrocketing demand for exorcisms to treat dad's non-stop MILF cravings are seeing record numbers of priests trained in the ancient bad-begone ritual.The number of official exorcists within the Catholic church in the US has increased from 12 to 50 over the last decade, as people blame Satan for everything from madness to getting caught shoplifting.The Telegraph spoke to Father Thomas and Father Lampert, two US-based priests whose special powers include being able to perform the Rite of Exorcism to, maybe if people believe in it enough, expel bad things from those afflicted by Satan.Father Thomas explains of those who come to him for a quick lunchtime exorcism: "Often the stories are very complicated and many have been suffering for a long time.They re sick in one way or another ... and sometimes they do have a demonic problem."But most time it appears to be people looking for an easy fix, with Father Lampert saying: "A lot of times people call me and already believe they re possessed.

Love the fact that you can now use your iPhone as a magnifier?If you love voicemail transcriptions, emoji taps, and the many other new features that came along with iOS 10, you re not alone.According to data from marketing consultant Fiksu, the latest operating system from Apple is now installed on more than two thirds of Apple devices.That represents a faster adoption rate than any other update the company has made, with data showing a 66.7 percent install rate just 27 days after release.Curiously enough, iOS 10 actually got off to a rather slow start.In fact, users seemed wary about updating their devices, as install rates for iOS 10 were actually behind those of iOS 6, 7, and 9 until about two weeks after its initial unveiling.
Facebook announced a bold move to take over your workplace — and, not surprisingly, it s called Workplace.It has all of the features of Facebook with your own company branding instead of baby pictures and Donald Trump jokes.Because it s a collaborative environment, a graphic designer in the firm can share their new brochure layout, and no one outside the firm could see it.Everyone can chat, share status updates about their day, participate in a group chat, chat over a video call, and even stream a live conference.I m impressed with how it works because I can envision companies ramping up quickly — perhaps at the fastest speed for any application ever released — and onboarding people into Workplace in record numbers.A Facebook rep told me that Workplace does not allow chatbots yet, but there is a massive opportunity here once they open up the platform, which will be remarkably similar and familiar to the consumer platform and may even use the exact same code base .Companies can use chatbots for countless activities without having to compete with a boatload of consumer-oriented apps.Developers can also hone in on a tighter market to boost productivity of office workers in tangible ways.The most obvious first chatbot in Workplace could be an office assistant.

Presented by Centrify.There is little debate that this election will be described as a referendum on the status quo, with very strong anti-establishment and anti-elitist sentiment driving record numbers of unexpected voters to the polls.But that doesn t tell the complete story.Yes, the Hillary campaign brought the current administration out in force in the final weeks, thus cementing her image as an entrenched Washington insider.But I can t help but think that this status quo image began to be shaped and hardened as a direct result of the leaked insider communications exposed on WikiLieaks as a result of the hacked DNC network and campaign chair Podesta emails.In the devastating DNC hack, there were many revelations that fueled the rhetoric that Hillary was given preferential treatment by the DNC party officials including the discussion of an anti-Bernie strategy and coordinating anti-Sanders messaging.There was even a head-slapping response to the realization that a shared password was compromised by…wait for it…emailing out a new password.Doh!In a recent blog, I described the Podesta hack as another lesson in two-factor authentication.It looks likely that Podesta fell victim to a typical phishing scheme, compromising his email and twitter accounts.
When misfortune befalls a market leader, smaller companies often exhort Register hacks to report on the wonderful alternative they offer readers seeking safe harbour from the latest SNAFU.And so it was over the weekend when, in an attempt to capitalise on LinkedIn's troubles in Russia, rival social network for businesses Opportunity got in touch with news of its lifeline for those whose business networks have just been sent to digital Siberia.Opportunity is concerned with the country's decision as it could have a snowball effect that would greatly hamper its peoples' ability to connect with each other, we were told.It's therefore cooked up a free offer for Russians, who the site says are already signing up for the service in record numbers.Knowing that LinkedIn has been KickedOut of Russia for failing to comply with laws demanding on-shore storage of personal data, The Register asked Opportunity if it stores personal data on Russian soil.They do not , we were told by the service's PR operatives.
