#TechTalk - Apple Sets Date For New Product Announcements

#TechTalk - Apple Sets Date For New Product Announcements

Apple has made it official: the company will be holding a press event on Sept 7 in San Francisco where the presumption is it will unveil both a new iPhone and a new Apple Watch.
Unlike prior invitations to Apple special events there were no obvious clues to what Tim Cook & Co. might be cooking up.
New phones should be faster, may come in additional colors, and may feature a second rear camera sensor (for low light shooting), at least on a larger Plus version. And the phones will run the already announced (and available as a beta) iOS 10 software update, which, among other new features, fancies up its iMessage app.

Etsy's App

Etsy's desktop site can feel overwhelming with the amount of products and information on there (reviews! blog updates! safety guidelines!), but its app is much easier to navigate.
The top toolbar lets you toggle from products recommended for you to editors' picks, as well as a view of your recent activity.
Whether you choose to shop jewelry or tops, you're sure to find something that you won't see on five other people when you walk down the street this fall.
(Free on iOS and Android)

Huma Abedin Leaves Weiner Behind

Huma Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton, announced Monday she will be separating from her husband, former congressman Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., following another sexting scandal.
"After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband. Anthony and I remain devoted to doing what is best for our son, who is the light of our life. During this difficult time, I ask for respect for our privacy," Abedin said in a statement.
The announcement comes after the New York Post reported Sunday that Weiner had been sending lewd photographs of himself to another woman while his wife was on the campaign trail with Clinton.
One of the photos included his 4-year-old son in the background.

Canada Reminds U.S. Tourists to Leave Their Guns at Home

Canada Reminds U.S. Tourists to Leave Their Guns at Home
Canadian border officials have had their hands full with American gun owners lately, and now our neighbors to the north are launching a U.S.-geared "firearms awareness campaign" in response.
In two separate incidents during the same weekend, U.S. citizens from Texas failed to declare their weapons upon inspection when they crossed the border.
Border agents confiscated and destroyed the perpetrators' guns, and both men were denied entry to Canada.
The first incident reportedly included four guns ranging from pistols to a 12-gauge shotgun. The second man had ammunition and a handgun.
But the problem is clearly a lot larger than just these two incidents: the Canada Border Services Agency seized 413 guns in the first half of 2016 alone, which far exceeds the 163 weapons they confiscated in the second half of 2015.
Canada is one of several nations to recently warn its U.S.-bound tourists about gun violence in the States, advising visitors that there's an increased chance of being subjected to violent crime in the U.S. than in many other countries.
Canada's new gun awareness initiative, announced on Monday, "strongly recommend[s] that you not carry your firearm" to or in Canada, and asks that Americans check the Canadian laws pertaining to their specific firearms before heading north.

TSA: Record Number of Guns in Carry-Ons Last Week

The TSA says it found a record number of guns in carry-on bags last week, August 12-18.
The total number of confiscated firearms was 81.
An alarming 70 of those guns were loaded, and 31 had a round chambered.
The TSA wants to remind everyone that firearms are prohibited in carry-on bags.
You may transport unloaded firearms in a locked hard-sided container as checked baggage only.
Declare the firearm and/or ammunition to the airline when checking your bag at the ticket counter.
The container must completely secure the firearm from being accessed.
Locked cases that can be easily opened are not permitted.
Seizing weapons in carry-on bags contributes to slower lines at airports as well
The TSA says, "Each time we find a dangerous item, the line is slowed down and a passenger that likely had no ill intent ends up with a citation or in some cases is even arrested. The passenger can face a penalty as high as $11,000."

All Donated Blood in U.S. Should Be Tested for Zika, F.D.A. Says

All Donated Blood in U.S. Should Be Tested for Zika, F.D.A. Says

The FDA says it has taken steps to safeguard the nation's blood supply from the Zika virus, calling for all blood banks to screen donations for the infection even in states where the virus is not circulating.
The recommendations are an acknowledgment that sexual transmission may facilitate the spread of Zika even in areas where mosquitoes carrying the virus are not present.
Officials also want to prepare for the possibility that clusters of local infection will continue to pop up in parts of the United States for years to come.
Experts say there could be multiple outbreaks of Zika happening outside the known current ones in South Florida, but because we are not actively looking they could be happening silently
Without federal funds, it is generally not possible for local health departments to conduct active surveillance for Zika virus in the blood or urine of patients with fever or rash
One expert says, "In some ways the inaction from Congress has forced the F.D.A. to adopt this position," Dr. Hotez says. "They have no other choice."
