The study presented at the 2019 IAB Digital Content NewFronts, entitled “A Day in the Life of Video Viewers,” shows that consumers watch video on different screens throughout the day—and do so with multiple motivations—which impacts their receptiveness to advertising. As marketers look to unify TV and digital campaigns, the research provides valuable information about how advertisers can use the medium more effectively to connect with consumers.“A Day in the Life of Video Viewers”Motivation wise, nearly 90 percent of weekly online video viewers say that they stream video to relax at the end of the day and during their free time—the highest percent of any motivation/mindset. The next most common viewing motivations are planned viewing (76%) and taking a break (75%).Motivations/mindset groupings in the study include: EscapistTo take a break during the day To help me with a project/task IAB Identifies Audience Motivations & Mindsets as Signals Required to Better Inform Targeting Strategies for Digital Video PRNewswireMay 3, 2019, 8:02 pmMay 3, 2019 Anna BagerConnected TVDigital Video CenterIAB Digital ContentMarketing TechnologyNews Previous ArticleTechBytes with Roland Gossage, CEO, GroupByNext ArticleVaimo Accelerates Global Growth with USA Expansion To spontaneously view/share with otherscenter_img EducationalTo learn a new skill Viewers are significantly more attentive to both content and ads when watching videos for educational/instructional purposes, and 40 percent say they pay more attention to ads in this mindset.

Preventing concrete bridges from falling apart

first_img Provided by Springer In a new study published in EPJ B, Matthew Lasich from Mangosuthu University of Technology, Durban, South Africa, examines the adverse consequences of the adsorption of natural gas constituents found in our environment—and mixtures of several such gases -into one of the materials that make up concrete: cement hydrate. Lasich found that the preservation of concrete infrastructure from the corrosive effects would require a pre-treatment targeting the adsorption sites in cement hydrate, where the majority of hydrogen sulphide molecules become attached. However, this approach could prove difficult because of their wide distribution.What makes concrete vulnerable to natural gas adsorption is its porous nature. Its structure is made up of a cement matrix binding together aggregates of particles of sand. In this study, the authors perform a nanoscale analysis based on Monte Carlo simulation to mimic the migration of gas molecules into the cement hydrate structure.They first recorded the adsorption level across various temperatures for methane, ethane, ethene, and ethyne to determine the uptake of each gas species in cement hydrate. This allowed them to study the effect of molecular size and molecular shape on the sorption of gases in cement hydrate. They then performed a similar analysis for natural gas constituents including nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and, most importantly, hydrogen sulphide.Their simulations suggest that a specific combination of molecular size and surface area is required for good uptake into cement hydrate. While hydrogen sulphide adsorbed most favourably of all gases considered in this study, ethyne adsorbed more favourably than methane, despite being a ‘heavier’ molecule, because its molecular shape lent itself better to the task.

Japan may take South Korea wartime labor dispute to International Court of

first_imgFILE PHOTO: A police officer stands guard near Japan and South Korea national flags in Tokyo June 22, 2015. REUTERS/Toru HanaiTOKYO (Reuters) – Japan is considering taking a dispute with South Korea over its compensation of wartime forced laborers to the International Court of Justice as the deadline for seeking third-country arbitration passes on Thursday, public broadcaster NHK reported. The question of compensation for South Koreans for labor during Japan’s 1910-45 occupation of the Korean peninsula has soured the U.S. allies’ relations, which took a turn for the worse this month when Japan restricted exports of high-tech material to South Korea. With no mutually palatable agreement, Tokyo has pushed for third party arbitration, which Seoul has rejected. Thursday is the deadline for making those arrangements. NHK said that once the deadline passes, Japan would continue to push Seoul for proposals to end the dispute while preparing for countermeasures – including considering going to the International Court of Justice. The case cannot go to trial, however, without agreement South Korea, Kyodo news agency reported. Japan initially cited the dispute over compensation for the wartime laborers as being behind what it sees as broken trust with South Korea as it announced the tighter export controls.

Tiny Fighting Worms Make One of the Loudest Sounds in the Ocean

During these feuds, the worms emit one of the loudest sounds in the ocean, according to a new study. The source of the underwater hullabaloo is a nearly transparent segmented worm called the Leocratides kimuraorum, which lives inside sponges 279 to 554 feet (85 to 169 meters) deep off the coast of Japan. [The 12 Weirdest Animal Discoveries]Advertisement These wigglies are just a tad more than an inch (29 millimeters) long and have lengthy tentacles and a big mouth (literally). These seemingly quiet creatures revealed their true nature under the spotlight in the lab. A group of researchers used an instrument called a hydrophone to record 15 pops that were emitted from three kimuraorums as they were fighting. In a marine feud researchers dub “mouth-fighting,” the worms approached each other headfirst with their mouths open. During such encounters, the worms’ pharynx muscles expand rapidly, creating a cavitation bubble that collapses and produces a loud “pop” while the worms launch into each other. The researchers found that these pops can reach 157 decibels in the water (which is a different measurement than decibels in the air). From right next to the water tank, the pops sounded like humans snapping their fingers, lead author Goto Ryutaro, an assitant professor at Kyoto University told Live Science. “Though they probably sound louder if you hear them in the water.” The worms are as loud as snapping shrimps, which are one of the biggest noisemakers in the ocean, the authors wrote. What’s more, they found that these worms did not make any noise when simply disturbed, they only did so when they were fighting. They “may use mouth-fighting to defend territory or living chambers from other worms,” the authors wrote July 8 in the journal Current Biology. “A loud pop may be a byproduct of the rapid mouth attack, but it may also aid intraspecific communication.” A loud noise could somehow determine the victor of the fight or even reveal the whereabouts of nearby worms, they wrote.

Three newborn kittens found dead with legs bound by rope among abandoned

first_imgThree newborn kittens were found dead with their legs bound by rope at a refuse collection point in a northern Hong Kong village on Friday, prompting a police investigation into animal cruelty.The trio were among a litter of five abandoned on Shek Tong Tsuen off Yau Shin Street in Yuen Long.One of the two surviving domestic shorthair cats, which were taken to the Wan Chai headquarters of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) for treatment, later died. Nation 22 May 2019 Miri launches major anti-animal cruelty campaign The case, reported by businessman Cheung Chi-yeung, 44, past midnight on Thursday after he heard the squeals of the kittens, was the second local incident of animal cruelty in a week. AdChoices广告Officers are investigating and no arrests have been made.Cheung found one of the surviving cats attempting to crawl out of a plastic bag at the bottom of a massive rubbish bin.“Inside the bag, there was another surviving kitten and three dead cats with their legs tied together with rope,” he said, adding that he believed the animals were found less than 12 hours after they were abandoned.Police hunt suspected poisoner after four dogs die and three fall illCheung, who is an animal-lover and keeps about 20 abandoned dogs at home in the same village, condemned the person behind the case of the kittens. “This gives the animals no chance to live,” he said.Officers were called in soon after 12.30am when Cheung made an emergency call.According to police, three dead cats were found at the scene and the two surviving animals were picked up by SPCA staff. Police are treating the case as cruelty to animals.An SPCA spokeswoman said one of the surviving cats later died at its Wan Chai headquarters.She said the dead bodies would be sent to the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department to determine the cause of death.It was the second report of animal cruelty in the city this week. On Wednesday, four of seven dogs suspected to have been poisoned died at a house in Tai Po Tin village off Ping Che Road, Ta Kwu Ling. The three surviving dogs were being treated at the SCPA headquarters.Three months ago, the carcasses of least 10 dogs and cats in various stages of decay were found in an animal shelter in the same district.Opinion: As a pet-loving city, Hong Kong should step up efforts against animal abuseOfficers also discovered nearly 100 malnourished animals in the shelter. Police arrested a 62-year-old man in charge of the site for animal cruelty.A spate of dog deaths last year led to more than 50,000 people petitioning the government to crack down on animal cruelty.At least nine dogs suspected to have been poisoned died in Tai Po and Fanling in a week in April last year. Six among the group died after their owners walked them at Wah Ming Estate in Fanling.In Hong Kong, cruelty to animals carries a maximum penalty of three years in jail and a fine of up to HK$200,000 (US$25,600).For the latest news from the South China Morning Post download our mobile app. Copyright 2019.

New cabinet ministers to be sworn in at 3 pm Saturday Goa

first_img Next Press Trust of India PanajiJuly 13, 2019UPDATED: July 13, 2019 04:58 IST Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said the swearing-in ceremony would be held at 3 pm Saturday. (Photo: PTI)Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said late on Friday night that he would reshuffle the cabinet on Saturday replacing four ministers and the swearing-in ceremony would be held at 3 pm.Ten Congress MLAs had on Wednesday joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) increasing the strength of the party to 27 on the floor of the House.Pramod Sawant said the three members from a coalition partner, Goa Forward Party, and an Independent MLA Rohan Khaunte would be dropped from the cabinet.Pramod Sawant refused to name the MLAs who would be inducted but said all the four would be from the BJP, with three of them from the legislators who joined the party on Wednesday.Speculations are rife that former leader of opposition Chandrakant Kavlekar, Philip Nery Rodrigues and Atanasio Monserratte would be inducted in the cabinet along with Deputy Speaker Michael Lobo.Pramod Sawant said the swearing-in ceremony would be held at 3 pm Saturday.This would the second cabinet reshuffle by Pramod Sawant since he took over as the chief minister three months ago. In his first cabinet reshuffle, Sawant had inducted MGP’s breakaway MLA Deepak Pauskar after dropping then deputy chief minister Sudin Dhavalikar.Asked why allies are being dropped from the cabinet, the chief minister said the decision has been taken as per directives of the central leadership.”I don’t want to go into details. We have taken this decision to give good governance to the people,” he said.Sawant has the support by three MLAs from the Goa Forward Party and an Independent.Goa Forward Party (GFP) chief and Deputy Chief Minister Vijai Sardesai had during the day said they are hoping for an amicable solution to the crisis.”The GFP is a part of the NDA and had joined the BJP-led government after talks with the saffron party’s national leadership,” Sardesai said, adding, “The present state BJP leaders were not part of the discussions then. As such, we will take appropriate steps only after talking to NDA leadership at the Centre.””We have not yet received any official communication from the BJP leaders. On the contrary, we have received indications that the matter will be sorted out amicably,” he said.Ten of the 15 Congress MLAs, led by the leader of Opposition, Chandrakant Kavlekar, switched sides and joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday.While the 10 MLAs and Lobo returned from Delhi, Sawant stayed back to attend a high-level meeting on Friday evening on the issue of mining in Goa, which has come to a standstill following a February 2018 Supreme Court order.Also Read | Goa CM Pramod Sawant seeks resignation of 3 ministers, independent MLA to induct new facesAlso Watch | Leaderless Congress headed towards self-destruction?For the latest World Cup news, live scores and fixtures for World Cup 2019, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Jones pointed to its intricate machinery which from 10000 feet up isn’t all that different than the brain’s “The issue of complexity is one” Allen keeps coming back to he said A little-noticed clause in the 2011 spending bill signed into law last week cuts off funding for a host of scientific exchanges between the United States and China Representative Frank Wolf (R-VA) a fierce opponent of the Chinese government and chair of a key appropriations panel inserted two sentences into the legislation that prohibits any joint scientific activity between the two nations that involves NASA or is coordinated by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) White House officials say that they are still reviewing the language On the surface it appears to apply only to those two entities and the bill extends only for the rest of the 2011 fiscal year which ends on 30 September But that still cuts a wide swath And Wolf makes it clear that he would like to permanently shut down all collaborations between the two governments "We don’t want to give them the opportunity to take advantage of our technology and we have nothing to gain from dealing with them" says Wolf "And frankly it boils down to a moral issue Would you have a bilateral program with Stalin" The language in the spending bill says that no government funds can be used by NASA or OSTP "to develop design plan promulgate implement or execute a bilateral policy program order or contract of any kind to participate collaborate or coordinate bilaterally in any way with China or any Chinese-owned company" It also prevents any NASA facility from hosting "official Chinese visitors" Wolf says that he singled out NASA because China’s space program although nominally independent "is run by the People’s Liberation Army" But the inclusion of OSTP is meant to cast a much bigger net he adds "It addresses everything the entire bilateral relationship on science and technology with respect to NASA and everything that involves OSTP" he says "It’s the whole ball of wax" In January the two countries signed an extension of a 1979 agreement on science and technology cooperation that has spawned dozens
