The CDC is terrified of these germs, so it's trying to contain them

Category : General · No Comments Apr 8th, 2018
Facebook

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) can’t stop microbes from mutating and becoming resistant to even our strongest drugs. But it is working harder than ever to come up with an effective containment strategy to stop the spread of these lethal bacteria.

In 2017, the CDC’s Antibiotic Resistance Laboratory collected 5,776 “highly resistant” germs from all 50 states in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Of these, 221 had evolved to carry a rare and formidable resistance gene. These are “nightmare bacteria”; bugs that are extremely difficult to treat, or …read more

Mark Zuckerberg had a secret power to retroactively delete his Messenger messages after they had been sent. Now Facebook says everyone will get that privacy tool.

The Facebook CEO was able to send messages through his company’s popular app and later delete traces of the conversation, according to a TechCrunch report. On Friday, after the discrete deletes came to light, Facebook promised to introduce that executive feature to everyone in the coming months.

Snapchat wants the olds of the world to know what it is and why it’s useful.

Walmart, Humana talk tie-up

Category : General · No Comments Mar 30th, 2018

Walmart is in talks with health insurer Humana for a closer partnership to provide health care to consumers at home and prevent illness, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Health-care spending accounted for about 18 percent of the U.S. economy last year, and continues to surge with an aging population, pricey medications, and a complex regime of reimbursements and middlemen. Companies have been trying to address some of the market’s inefficiencies by forging alliances or getting bigger: Cigna Corp. is acquiring Express Scripts Holding Co. for $54 billion, and CVS Health Corp. is buying Aetna Inc. for $68 billion.

Walmart and Humana have explored a wide range of options including a merger, though an outright combination isn’t likely at this point, said the person, who asked not to be identified discussing private information. The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that Walmart was in early talks to acquire Humana.

Facebook Suspends Trump Election Data Firm for Policy Breach

Category : General · No Comments Mar 17th, 2018

Facebook has suspended Cambridge Analytica, a data company that helped President Donald Trump win the 2016 presidential election and which may have collected data from 50 million Facebook profiles without their owners’ permission.

The social-networking company said in a blog post Friday that Cambridge Analytica received some user data through an app developer on its social network, violating its policies. In 2015, Facebook said Cambridge Analytica certified that it had destroyed the information.

“Several days ago, we received reports that, contrary to the certifications we were given, not all data was deleted,” Facebook said in a statement. Cambridge Analytica and parent Strategic Communication Laboratories have been suspended from the social network, “pending further information,” Facebook said.

A scandal-plagued former Tory politician banned for life in 2015 by his party has left his Unilever marketing job amid an internal investigation into sexual-harassment allegations by an unnamed contractor.

Delta Rethinks Deals for Any 'Divisive' Group Amid NRA Fray

Category : General · No Comments Mar 2nd, 2018

Delta Air Lines is studying whether to end discounts for “politically divisive” organizations, after a firestorm over its decision to terminate a deal with the National Rifle Association.

CEO Ed Bastian announced the policy review a day after Georgia lawmakers punished Delta by removing a jet-fuel tax exemption from a larger bill. Politicians stripped out the provision after the Atlanta-based carrier eliminated a discount for NRA members attending the group’s annual meeting.

“Our discounted travel benefit for NRA members could be seen as Delta implicitly endorsing the NRA. That is not the case,” Bastian said Friday in a memo to employees. “While Delta’s intent was to remain neutral, some elected officials in Georgia tied our decision to a pending jet-fuel tax exemption, threatening to eliminate it unless we reversed course. Our decision was not made for economic gain and our values are not for sale.”

Irrational Exuberance? Why Super Bowl Ad Rate Growth Has Stalled Out

Category : General · No Comments Feb 12th, 2018

Depending on who’s doing the counting, NBC’s Feb. 4 broadcast of Super Bowl LII was either the lowest-rated NFL title tilt in nearly a decade or the most-watched program in the history of TV. And while there’s a good deal of ambiguity surrounding the deliveries of TV’s last great reach vehicle, buyers are not at all equivocal in their belief that the era of soaring Super Bowl inventory rates has come to an end.

According to Nielsen live-plus-same-day data, NBC’s coverage of the Eagles-Patriots joyride averaged 103.4 million linear TV viewers, the smallest turnout for a Super Bowl since 2009. Toss in the 2.6 million fans who streamed the game on various NBC and NFL platforms, and Super Bowl LII delivered 106 million total viewersa more respectable number, even if it still adds up to a nine-year low.

On Thursday, however, NBC revealed that another 12.2 million viewers had taken in the game at a bar, restaurant or someone else’s home, bringing the overall TV audience to a record 115.6 million viewers, topping the high-water mark (114.4 million) the Peacock itself set three years ago with Super Bowl XLIX. Add the streaming figure, and now advertisers would appear to have reached an average audience of some 118.2 million viewers.
