More tests needed in death of Syracuse sprinter at NYC hotel

first_imgSabrina Cammock (Facebook Photo)NEW YORK (AP) — More tests are needed to determine the cause of death of a Syracuse University sprinter found in a Times Square hotel room during spring break, medical examiners said Sunday.Sabrina Cammock’s autopsy was conducted Sunday, but the results were awaiting further studies, medical examiners’ spokeswoman Julie Bolcer said.Police say there were no signs of criminality when Cammock was found at around 9:20 a.m. Saturday at the Hotel Edison. The hotel declined to comment on the death, first reported Saturday by the Daily News.Specializing in sprinting, Cammock competed as recently as the previous weekend, when she was on the women’s 4×400 relay team at the 2015 ACC Indoor Championships at Virginia Tech, according to Syracuse’s sports website.“Sabrina was a wonderful and remarkable person and student-athlete,” Syracuse track and field coach Chris Fox said in a statement Saturday. “Our team and coaching staff are devastated by her loss.”Cammock, a senior, was studying public health at Syracuse’s David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics, Dean of Student Affairs Rebecca Reed Kantrowitz said in a statement. The university is on spring break.Cammock had recently done an internship involving medical quality assurance in an oncology unit, giving a presentation about the subject as part of an internship symposium at her school in December.A member of a school record-setting 4×100-meter relay team, Cammock won a Syracuse scholar-athlete of the week award last April. She also was named to the 2012-13 Big East conference All-Academic Team.As a high-school student, Cammock ran for The Mary Louis Academy, a Catholic girls’ school near her home in the Jamaica Estates section of Queens.“She’s better than anybody you know,” her cousin Kemal Brown told the Daily News. “She’s a baby, and she’s gone.”last_img read more

Modric speaks about a move to Ancelotti’s Bayern

first_imgLuka Modric has been linked as a possible signing for Bayern Munich when Carlo Ancelotti takes charge of the German giants this summer.  The Croatian midfielder enjoyed a healthy relationship with the Italian when they worked together at Real Madrid, but he’s refused to elaborate on talk they could be set to reunite in the Bundesliga.  CET However, Modric did reveal the two men have kept in charge since Ancelotti left Madrid, “although we have never spoken of a hypothetical signing for Bayern,” he added.  Sport EN 19/01/2016 “It’s just rumours,” Modric said when asked by Sportske Novosti about Bayern’s supposed interest.  Upd. at 22:45 Los Blancos would be unwilling to sell their midfield player, but Ancelotti would surely be keen to have Modric, whose contract in the Spanish capital runs until 2018, alongside him at the Allianz Arena.last_img read more

Freckle: Feel Good Time Tracking

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… If you work on your own or for a small company, every minute counts – especially if you’re getting paid by the hour. But still, there’s likely one task that you dread doing every day: tracking those minutes. It’s not fun. Necessary, yes, but fun? Freckle – a thoughtful and beautiful new time tracking app – would like to change that.Another Web-based time tracking app? Why would we focus on that? There are a number of features that make Freckle worth a look, but the primary reason for considering Freckle is that the team behind it is rethinking the time tracking problem. And it could be that approach which differentiates the product in a crowded market. The team behind Freckle wants to replace your dread with a time tracking app that makes you happy: “Good software is cheerful software: it behaves cheerfully, and it leaves you cheerful, too.”Part of that user happiness will come from the intuitive design and thoughtful AJAX implementation throughout the app. The thoughtful – and colorful – aesthetic should come as no surprise, given that it was put together by interface designer Amy Hoy and javascript consultant Thomas Fuchs – the same folks who brought us Twistori.The most striking part of the app is the user interface. Unlike the Web-based time tracking app I use on a regular basis, Freckle allows users to enter all of your time and categorize it without a lot of switching between typing and clicking. You can enter all of the data from the keyboard. And that saves time. Time that could be spent on other projects.Many other time tracking systems rely on a rigid set of client and category lists that – while often editable – require dropping the task at hand to add new clients, projects, and categories. With Freckle, adding these elements all happens on the fly. Adding a new category, for example, is as simple as adding a new tag. What’s more, you’re not constrained to a single category for a task. You can can categorize tasks for both client’s requirements as well as your own internal tracking needs. Yes, Freckle is simple and thoughtful – with some insightful reporting functionality to boot. But unfortunately, Freckle’s ultra-simple design lacks one feature which – for me – makes my current time tracking app invaluable: a stopwatch. With Freckle, I’m still required to figure out how much time I’ve spent on any given activity. And for someone like me, who jumps from task to task and client to client, the lack of a stopwatch is a deal breaker.And that’s unfortunate. I want to use the app. Partially because of the application, but mostly because of the team’s vision for Freckle:“We’re in this to build a sustainable business: to make truly great software, to help people add a little joy back to their daily business, and to make a living doing it.We’re not building a tasty startup snack for Google to devour, digest, and defecate.”It’s always nice to see a team with a vision – especially when that vision is accompanied by an application with a revenue model. Freckle offers several levels of paid service starting at $24 US per month for five users. Each level carries a 30-day free trial. Freckle also offers a “one user, one project” setup for free.If you’re more focused than I and capable of judging “how long you’ve spent on X,” then Freckle could very well be the answer to your time tracking needs. It’s certainly much more fun and functional than a dreary spreadsheet. To try the app and read more about the team’s vision, visit Freckle.

Cloud Security: Businesses Worry about Putting Data in the Cloud, but they Worry about On-Premise Data Too

first_imgPutting an app in the cloud increases the likelihood of having a data breach.   Using cloud-based apps may increase the economic fallout from a data breach by more than a factor of three.  Those are two of the results from a survey of IT professionals made by the Ponemon Institute in a report that identifies what they call a security “cloud multiplier effect“.Larry Ponemon, chairman and founder of the Ponemon Institute, said that “I suspect that the low vote of confidence in cloud vendors we’re seeing is due to heightened scrutiny and a ‘fear of the unknown.’ Overcoming this takes a better understanding of a vendor’s security precautions and how people are using the cloud in the first place. Businesses that demand more vendor transparency and seek efficient methods for evaluating apps and directing usage will find it easier to embrace the cloud and move past this period of uncertainty.”Other results of the recent Ponemon survey were:66 percent said that using the cloud reduces confidence in how well sensitive information is being protected62 percent said that they think cloud providers turn on services before they’ve fully tested them for security71 percent didn’t think that their cloud provider would provide them immediate notification if there was a data loss or theftBill Kehoe, CIO of King County, said that “I think you’ve got to be careful.  You can’t just throw your data into any cloud environment.”But despite their worry about security in the cloud, security is an issue no matter where your data is stored.  51 percent said that on-premise data has just as many security issues as data stored in the cloudlast_img read more
