Leaker: iPhone 12 Lineup to Feature Faster Face ID, Improved Zoom, and Longer Battery Life

Leaker Max Weinbach has today shared new “finalized and revised” information about the upcoming iPhone 12 via his Twitter account @PineLeaks.

Weinbach states that the “most important things” about the new iPhones were already revealed by Chinese Weibo user “Kang” via an extensive leak on Friday, but he does offer some specific new information.

Apple is reportedly still intending to ship the “dynamic zoning algorithm” feature, which could allow for faster Face ID. The notch may only be reduced in width on the 5.4-inch ‌iPhone 12‌ mini due to its smaller size. This would be achieved by arranging the components of the TrueDepth camera system more “tightly,” but at the cost of increasing its height. Alleged images of the ‌iPhone 12‌ mini’s screen emerged in July, which seemed to show a smaller notch.

Dashboard reduced preparation time by 30%, improved access to data and decision-making — ScienceDaily

Multidisciplinary tumor boards are vital to cancer treatment plans, bringing together clinicians from different specialties to guide patient treatment and improve outcomes. However, compiling the relevant data for each case is time-consuming and requires contributions from multiple team members. To optimize the process, researchers at the MU School of Medicine partnered with Roche Diagnostics to evaluate a cloud-based product called NAVIFY® Tumor Board that integrates all relevant clinical data for a tumor board into a single digital dashboard accessible to everyone. During a 16-month clinical study of the dashboard, researchers found NAVIFY Tumor Board significantly reduced the amount of time doctors and nurses across multiple specialties spent preparing for 227 tumor board meetings involving 1866 patient cases.

“In addition to saving time, the NAVIFY digital tumor board solution resulted in less variability in preparation time,” said Richard Hammer, MD, professor of pathology at the MU School of Medicine and vice

Joint Counter-sUAS strategy to address need for improved technology | Article

WASHINGTON — The Department of Defense is slated to release its counter-small unmanned aircraft systems strategy next month, bringing an open-system architecture and enterprise approach to the military’s capabilities.The Army-led Joint C-sUAS Office, or JCO, has worked to align current and future counter-drone technologies to support operational requirements at home and abroad, said Maj. Gen. Sean A. Gainey, the program’s director.The increased threat posed by drones, combined with a lack of dependable networked capabilities to counter the unmanned threat, has created a concerning “tactical development” within U.S. Central Command’s area of responsibility, Gainey said, paraphrasing a recent statement made by its commander.Classification of unmanned aircraft systems is divided into five category groups. The defense secretary appointed the Army as the executive agent for counter-small UAS groups one through three, said Col. Richard Wright, the JCO deputy director.These first three categories represent smaller, low-cost drones, whose rapid proliferation can threaten personnel

5 things Texas Tech fans need to know about Kansas State, including a newly improved QB

These two teams could not be coming off of more different games in the week before. Kansas State heads into the game coming off a comeback win over No. 3 Oklahoma, while Texas Tech is coming off a game where… Well, you all know what happened.

Here are five things Texas Tech fans need to know about Kansas State:

Skylar Thompson can throw

Historically, the Kansas State offense hasn’t been like most other Big 12 offenses in terms of its productivity through the air. The Wildcats have only had one QB throw for at least 2,000 yards in the last five seasons: Skylar Thompson last year (2,315 yards).

Through two games the senior quarterback has thrown for 593 yards and three touchdowns. He’s the best quarterback this team has had in several years, probably since Collin Klein. Thompson isn’t flashy but he knows how to operate within this offense.

‘Front of package’ nutrition labels improved nutrition quality — ScienceDaily

A new study analyzing 16 years of data on tens of thousands of products finds that the adoption of nutrition data on “front of package” (FOP) labels is associated with improved nutritional content of those foods and their competitors.

“We wanted to know whether food companies were responding to increased public interest in healthier food,” says Rishika Rishika, co-author of the study and an associate professor of marketing in North Carolina State University’s Poole College of Management. “In other words, is the market driving change in the nutrition of food products? And the evidence suggest that this is exactly what’s happening.”

For this study, the researchers evaluated nutritional data on 44 categories of food products from 1996 through 2011. Altogether, the researchers looked at data on 21,096 products, representing 9,083 brands, covering everything from energy bars to soup.

Specifically, the researchers evaluated whether there was any impact when products adopted
