Macy's cutting 1,300+ jobs, closing 14 stores: trouble in paradise? - AGBeat

Macy's cutting 1,300+ jobs, closing 14 stores: trouble in paradise? - AGBeat | All things digital | Scoop.it

Macy’s has announced they will shut down 14 stores as part of a restructuring effort, citing a shift in how consumers shop. The retail giant notes that this is part of a broader plan to meet consumers where they are: online.

 

The closed stores will mean a reduction of 1,343 jobs and should be completed within the next few months. The news has the average layperson assuming the worst of the brand, but Macy’s is no JCPenney, no, this is a simple effort that is common for large brands. These closures represent only a fraction of the brand’s 790 stores across America....

"Virtualizer" lets VR gamers walk on the spot to move in the game | GizMag.com

"Virtualizer" lets VR gamers walk on the spot to move in the game | GizMag.com | All things digital | Scoop.it

Remember when you were a kid, and you used to go sliding across the floor in your stocking feet? Well, researchers at Austria's Vienna University of Technology have developed a virtual reality gaming system that brings those sock-sliding days to mind. It allows players to walk on the spot in the real world, causing their character to walk across the ground in the game.

 

Known as the Virtualizer, the pulpit-like device incorporates a disc-shaped low-friction floor plate, and a belt that is linked to three vertical columns.

 

The player slides their sock-clad feet around on the plate, simulating the walking or running gait that they wish to achieve in the game. Sensors in the plate detect the speed at which their feet are moving, and moves their character around in the game at that same speed.

Democratizing Healthcare via Smartphones

Democratizing Healthcare via Smartphones | All things digital | Scoop.it
From smartphone attachments that can diagnose an ear infection to apps that can monitor mental health, new tools are tilting health-care control from doctors to patients.

Luca Naso's curator insight, January 13, 2015 10:45 AM

Digital avatars won’t replace physicians: You will still be seeing doctors, but the relationship will ultimately be radically altered. Deloitte says that as many as one in six doctor visits were already virtual in 2014.

 

Smartphones already can be used to take blood-pressure readings or even do an electrocardiogram. Other wearable sensor tools now being developed include necklaces that can monitor your heart function and check the amount of fluid in your lungs, contact lenses that can track your glucose levels or your eye pressure, and headbands that can capture your brain waves. Smartphone sensors under development will be able to monitor your exposure to radiation, air pollution or pesticides in foods. Smartphone attachments will soon enable you to perform an array of routine lab tests via your phone. Blood electrolytes; liver, kidney and thyroid function; analysis of breath, sweat and urine. 

 

By having the equivalent of intensive care unit monitoring on your wrist, hospital rooms can be replaced by our bedrooms. As a result, hospitals of the future are likely to be roomless data surveillance centers for remote patient monitoring.

 

Before these tools enter widespread use, they must all be validated through clinical trials and shown to preserve health.

Perfect example of cultural diffusion.

Steven Flis's curator insight, December 16, 2013 3:59 AM

I am a huge soccer fan and with that i also have to say i tend to neglect the MLS due to its lack of talent. The problem in the past with the MLS was that it was too home grown and their wasnt many international players to provide a wider demographic in the leauge which also means worse players. But with the MLS signing some big names from around the world such as Henry from France Beckham from Uk and Cahill from the AU the MLS is growing in popularity around the world and is soon to be a globally viewed leauge. This is a map of where the nearly 600 MLS players come from and it goes to show the more nations you can represent the bigger crowd demographic you can draw in.

Jessica Rieman's curator insight, March 19, 2014 5:25 PM

There are 35 MLS players that came from Africa according to the article. In America soccer or football in Europe is not that popular it is more like our baseball or football then like the soccer over there. (That is their "past time") In America we have a large population that play sports but specifically soccer we do not have that many participants that involve themselves in this , I think part of the reason is that abroad soccer is so important to them and they try to flourish from that sport onto tournments and other MLS players go for the cup. Oppose to America and our excitment about the NFL and MBL.
