Jihadist group claims downing of Egypt army helicopter

first_imgCAIRO- An Al-Qaeda inspired group has claimed it shot down an Egyptian military helicopter in the Sinai peninsula, in what the army said was an accident that killed five soldiers.The Ansar Beit al-Madqis group, which has taken responsibility for a series of deadly attacks across the country, said its fighters brought down the helicopter on Saturday with a missile.   The military issued a statement saying five soldiers were killed in a helicopter “accident” as they pursued militants in the restive peninsula.Ansar Beit al-Maqdis said the helicopter was shot down near the North Sinai town of Sheikh Zuwayed with a “surface-to-air missile, killing all its crew.” The group’s statement was published on a forum used by Islamist militant groups to claim responsibility for attacks.Scores of soldiers and policemen have been killed in militant attacks since the army overthrew Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July.The attacks have spread to the capital, which saw five bombings over a 24-hour period on Friday and Saturday that left six people dead.last_img read more

UN peacekeeping mission in Sierra Leone extended six months

The Council unanimously adopted the resolution to prolong the operation, emphasizing that “the development of the administrative capacities of the Government of Sierra Leone, particularly an effective and sustainable police, army, penal system and independent judiciary, is essential to long-term peace and development.”In a recent report, Secretary-General Kofi Annan recommended a continued gradual withdrawal of UN peacekeepers from Sierra Leone, primarily because of the “shortcomings” in the country’s armed and law enforcement forces. The Council also welcomed progress with deployment of UN civilian police to UNAMSIL, and urged countries to provide resources to help fulfil the police size and capacity targets of the Mission.The resolution also encouraged the continued support of UNAMSIL “within its capabilities and areas of deployment, for the voluntary return of refugees and displaced persons.” read more

Study Migrant workers exploited en route to Arab Gulf

Study: Migrant workers exploited en route to Arab Gulf In this Monday, April 10, 2017 photo, a few labourers work on the road construction site in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. A new study has found that South Asian migrants working in the multi-billion dollar construction industry in Arab Gulf countries are shouldering the costs of their own recruitment fees while companies and their clients are reaping the benefits from inexpensive labor. (AP Photo/Kamran Jebreili) by Aya Batrawy, The Associated Press Posted Apr 11, 2017 9:01 am MDT Last Updated Apr 11, 2017 at 10:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – South Asian migrants working in the multi-billion dollar construction industry in Arab Gulf countries are shouldering the costs of their own recruitment fees while companies and their clients are reaping the benefits from inexpensive labour, according to a study released Tuesday.The research by New York University’s Stern Center for Business and Human Rights found that workers spend an average of 10 to 18 months’ worth of salary paying off the fees that help facilitate their migration.A slide in oil prices has slowed down the pace of construction in the Gulf and affected governments’ abilities to pay for major infrastructure costs, but there is still strong demand for millions of low-wage construction workers. Qatar is investing heavily in the construction of stadiums for the 2022 World Cup. Dubai is building up a vast desert area that will be the site of the 2020 World Expo.In order to reduce the cost of labour on mega projects, a weakly controlled system for recruitment is passing on the costs to the workers themselves, says the study.Workers from Bangladesh are paying the highest fees in the world. Bangladeshis earning just a few hundred dollars a month in the Gulf are paying recruitment fees ranging from around $1,700 to $5,200. Indian migrants are paying an average of between $1,000 and $3,000.The study describes it as a “perverse business model.” Rather than providing an opportunity for decent pay and a better livelihood, construction industry practices across the Gulf are pushing workers into extreme debt and exacerbating abuses, such as an inability to change jobs or move to another country due to indebtedness.“Companies should strive to be in compliance with local law in areas where they are operating,” said David Segall, one of the authors of the report. “As we’ve seen in other industries, the dam holding back reputational damage tends to break suddenly and without warning and irreversibly so I think it would be to construction companies’ benefit to come ahead of the curve on this one.”Segall and his co-author Sarah Labowitz say construction firms and their Gulf-based clients can help “end the cycle of abuse” by paying for the recruitment costs of construction workers who are needed to build the region’s skyscrapers, stadiums, hotels, theme parks and sprawling malls.The report, titled “Migrant Workers Pay: Recruitment of the Migrant Labor Force in the Gulf Construction Industry,” details how workers are exploited through a complex system of agents and subagents who gross hundreds of dollars in profit per worker. Workers are paying several times more than the real cost of recruitment, which is closer to $400 to $650, excluding the cost of airfare.It calls on Arab governments to enforce laws against the selling of visas and on migrant-sending countries to legalize and regulate their local networks of unregistered recruitment agents.There are laws in place banning Gulf-based employers from directly charging migrant workers for their own recruitment. Selling visas is also illegal in the six members of the Gulf Cooperation Council: Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman and Bahrain.The study found that governments in the Gulf provide migrant worker visas to multinational and local construction companies for free or at a nominal cost, but Gulf-based agents turn around and sell them at a markup to recruiters in South Asian countries who then pass on the cost to the lowest-paid and most vulnerable workers.There are around 25 million migrant workers across the GCC, in some countries outnumbering the local population. Often hailing from South Asia, the workers accept low-wage jobs with few protections for a chance to send money to relatives back home. They are allowed to return for a visit once every few years.“At the end of the day, most of these people are coming for a very simple reason: They’re coming for a better life,” Segall said.The Stern Center for Business and Human Rights, which advocates for business practices that abide by human rights standards, receives funding from NYU’s business school, foundations, individuals and companies.___For more visit: http://bhr.stern.nyu.edu/___Follow Aya Batrawy on Twitter at www.twitter.com/ayaelb read more

Fallon tells Trump Freedom cannot be traded in Ukraine

first_imgBritain will stand alongside Ukraine in its confrontation with Russia because freedom cannot be “traded”, the Defence Secretary has said, amid fears Donald Trump may scale back support to Kiev in a deal with Moscow.Sir Michael Fallon announced new British military training to Ukrainian forces battling Russian-backed separatists and said a Royal Navy warship will visit the country for the first time in a decade.He arrived in Kiev for two days of talks as the US election of Mr Trump has caused alarm among Ukrainians dismayed at his apparent warmth towards Vladimir Putin.   The defence secretary has arrived in KievCredit:SERGEY DOLZHENKO/EPA The comments come as Donald Trump is about to replace Barack Obama as presidentCredit:Pablo Martinez Monsivais/AP  Putin Kiev The Defence Secretary also announced that one of the Navy’s Type 45 destroyers will visit the Black Sea port of Odessa in the summer, the first time a British warship has visited the country since 2008.The destroyer will be leading a Nato deployment that will also visit Bulgaria and Romania.America has stopped short of supplying weapons to Ukraine after the 2014 annexation of Crimea, but has supplied money and training and imposed sanctions on Mr Putin’s regime. Mr Trump said earlier this week that he would propose offering to end sanctions on Moscow in return for a nuclear arms reduction deal.Barack Obama said “I think it would probably best serve, not only American interests, but also the interests of preserving international norms if we made sure that we don’t confuse why these sanctions have been imposed with a whole set of other issues,” he said.”It is important for the United States to stand up for the basic principal that big countries don’t go around and invade and bully smaller countries,” the Democratic president added.center_img In comments likely to be seen as a message to Mr Trump, Sir Michael said: “The values of freedom and democracy cannot be traded.”“Britain is stepping up on the global stage and standing firm with our Ukrainian friends.“The UK is sending a clear message that we are committed to defending democracy across the world and support Ukraine’s sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity.”The remarks follow comments from Mr Trump that he will propose an end to sanctions imposed after the annexation of Crimea. Trump and Obama Mr Trump has downplayed Russian aggression in the Donbass region of Eastern Ukraine and has suggested he may recognise Moscow’s claims on the peninsula.He has said he wants to improve ties with Russia, despite allegations by US spy agencies that Mr Putin ordered a cyber campaign to boost Trump’s campaign against Hillary Clinton.Sir Michael, who is due to meet his Ukrainian counterpart, Gen Stepan Poltorak, said Britain’s 100-strong training team will now widen out its courses to train the local air force and navy.British troops have trained around 5,000 members of the Ukrainian forces in military skills including battlefield medicine and infantry tactics.  Trump has said he will improve ties with PutinCredit: Sergei Ilnitsky/AP Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Floor Kids is Tony Hawks Pro Breakdancer

first_imgStay on target ‘Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball FormSNES Games Officially Come to Nintendo Switch If you have a Nintendo Switch, chances are you also have The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The new Zelda is a massive, phenomenal game that you can and should play for dozens of hours. But eventually, you’re going to want to play something new on your Nintendo console/handheld hybrid. Switch Games That Aren’t Zelda is a new column highlighting cool, smaller Switch games to check out once you’ve saved Hyrule.It’s always nice to see a good, hip-hop-themed rhythm game. Hip-hop is a huge part of music and a rapping game, PaRappa the Rapper, kicked off the gaming genre years before plastic guitars. It’s part of the reason why I love DJ Hero. But breakdancing is another core tenet of hip-hop, and it’s the focus of Floor Kids on Nintendo Switch (not to be confused with famous anime butchers 4Kids). The stylish but simple look and youthful cast may get to think this is just a basic good time, but the sheer complexity of the dance system proves otherwise.Floor Kids challenges you to lead the best dance crew in the city by putting on performances across town. Earn enough stars and you’ll unlock new venues like a subway station or art gallery along with new characters with handles like Noogie and Scribbles. There are at least eight venues with three songs each, but you’ll return to them to get higher scores as it’s unlikely you’ll have a complete grasp on the dance system your first time through.And what a dance system it is. At first Floor Kids reminded me of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater but with dancing. However, the more I took in its depth the more it resembled Tony Hawk’s more technical counterpart Skate… but with dancing.Players have a wide variety of moves across several categories and subcategories. Pushing the stick up or down puts dancers in an upright or downward stance each with different moves activated by face buttons. Spinning the stick or holding it along with a button spins the dancer or freezes them in place as long as they stay balanced. Players can flip and hop as well depending on the situation.It sounds like a lot to absorb but that’s the point. Although the characters all use the same inputs, just with different stats in each category, Floor Kids is almost like a fighting game because the skill comes from mastering the combo system. It’s a bit obtuse and tough to find an “optimal” way to play. But the point system grades you on everything from tapping along to the beat to using a variety of moves to attempting more advanced moves.And you’ll have to do all of these things to keep progressing. You’ll have to review your move list and memorize what flows into what for higher scores. Try Kick Hops to Salsa Rock to Barrel Mills. You’ll have to pay attention to audience suggestions in the middle of the performance. You’ll have to tap along to brief traditional rhythm game bits to mix up each song. All of these considerations keep the game from devolving into rhythmic button mashing, which to be fair can produce somewhat satisfying results all its own.The system is also creative and expressiveness enough that a freestyle mode without points would be worthwhile like DropMix. Unfortunately, that’s not here at the moment. But beyond the story mode there is a multiplayer option. Two players go back and forth on the same track. It feels like a proper dance battle.The music also holds up its end of the bargain. The scratchy tracks come courtesy of DJ Kid Koala and totally get you in the best b-boy or b-girl mood. And since you have so much freedom with what buttons you can press at any time you can slip into a tactile groove much faster and easier compared to regular music games. I really got into it. The songs are brief enough to make portable play great on Switch. However, for whatever reasons load times seem strangely long.Meanwhile, the art and animation are from creator Jon Jon, who originated the Floor Kids concept with Kid Koala as short films years ago. The sketchy, Newgrounds-esque look surely helps make the dance transitions smoother on an indie budget, but it’s a great aesthetic nonetheless that feels completely true to the scene. You almost want the Splatoon squid kids to show up. And the cutscenes drip with classic old-school hip-hop mysticism most recently seen in stuff like The Get Down on Netflix.Along with skating and fighting games, Floor Kids reminded me of fellow recent indie Switch game Battle Chef Brigade in that they are both fascinating bite-sized video game interpretations of real-world activities that take a great deal of skill. You may never be a great breakdancer with your body, but Floor Kids at least helps you get close with your fingers.Buy it now!Super Mario OdysseyThe Legend of Zelda: Breath of the WildNintendo SwitchProtect Your Nintendo Switch With These Awesome CasesLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

CA State Senate passes vaccine exemption bill coauthored by Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez

first_img Posted: May 22, 2019 CA State Senate passes vaccine exemption bill co-authored by Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Categories: California News, Health, Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom, KUSI Newsroom May 22, 2019 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The state Senate Wednesday passed a bill co-authored by a San Diego assemblywoman that’s intended to reduce the number of falsified medical exemptions which allow children to avoid common vaccinations.Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego, drafted the bill with Sen. Richard Pan, a pediatrician, in response to spiking medical exemption numbers since the state banned personal belief exemptions in 2015. Vaccination rates have increased since that ban, according to Pan, but medical exemptions have also tripled in that time.Senate Bill 276 would require physicians to certify that they examined the patient and submit exemption requests to the state’s Department of Public Health, which would then review the request and the physician’s license number and professional history. State health officials would also reserve the right to revoke exemptions if they’re found to be fraudulent.“SB 276 will protect community immunity by ending the exemptions cottage industry, in which anti-vaccination parents seek — and a few doctors issue — fake medical exemptions as a way to get around California’s vaccination laws,” Gonzalez said.Statewide vaccination rates have increased from 90.7% in the 2010-2011 academic year to 95.6% in 2016-2017. Since 2015, however, medical exemptions have increased among children statewide from 0.2% to 0.7%. During the 2018-2018 school year, some schools around the state had a percentage of incoming kindergarten students with medical exemptions as high as 58%, according to the state’s Department of Public Health.A vaccination rate of 94% is necessary to achieve so-called herd immunity, according to Pan, which prevents the spread of preventable illnesses like measles and whooping cough to people like infants and chemotherapy patients who can’t be vaccinated.“SB 276 assures students who truly need medical exemptions will receive them and that the schools they attend maintain community immunity to keep them safe,” Pan said. “Through passage of SB 276, we are taking a preventive approach to keep schools safe for all students by applying a model successfully used in West Virginia, which has not experienced measles in a decade.”The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed more than 700 measles cases this year, with children under 5 years old accounting for roughly half of them and more than 500 in people who had not been vaccinated. About 40 measles cases have been reported in California this year, according to the CDC.The bill is supported and co-sponsored by the California Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics California and the vaccine advocacy group Vaccinate California.Opponents of the legislation say it undermines personal freedoms and the relationship between a physician and their patients. Opponents in the Senate gallery shouted “we will not comply” as legislators voted on the bill.SB 276 passed on a 24-10 vote. The bill will now head to the Assembly, followed by Gov. Gavin Newsom’s desk should it be passed. last_img read more

Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma kissed their bad form away with superb knocks and now the job is cut out for the bowlers to get the job done at the Feroz Shah Kotla. India’s top order in Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan & Rohit Sharma have scored 56.76 % of the total runs India have managed after Champions Trophy 2018.The problematic number 4 spot Virat KohliRobert Cianflone/Getty ImagesHowever, the number 4 spot remains as problematic as ever. The Indian side has used as many as 10 options for that spot, but no one has been able to make the spot his own.Perhaps, the biggest solace which the Indian can draw before the clash is their record in series deciders since the 2015 World Cup. India under Virat Kohli have won 11 out of the 12 bilateral series they have played and the team’s record in series deciders is clinical.Barring the loss to South Africa in Mumbai, the Indian side has managed to win all the deciders at home. Also, the only loss which has come for then away from home was against England last year. Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra YadavGareth Copley/Getty ImagesHowever, there are a few causes for concern for Virat Kohli – the primary one being the jittery form of the spinners. After being the most crucial cog in India’s bowling attack over the past 15 months, the tweakers have been off the boil this year.In the 150 overs, Kuldeep and Chahal have bowled this year, their economy rate of 5.43 is the worst for them in any particular year. 220 is the average score at this venue, and this is why India could well play three spinners in Delhi. The hosts have won 4 out of the last 5 matches at the venue. Against Australia, India have won three out of the four matches played.The stage is perfectly set for the final encounter and it has all the making of a crunch series decider in the capital.last_img read more

Google Doodle celebrates Vikram Sarabhais 100th birthday

first_imgVikram Sarabhai (Photo by Keystone/Hulton Archive/Getty Images)As Chandrayaan-2 cruises to reach the moon by August 20 and drop a lander called Vikram on the Earth’s sole satellite on September 7, Google on Monday celebrated the 100th birthday of Dr Vikram Sarabhai – father of the Indian space programme “with a Doodle”.”There are some who question the relevance of space activities in a developing nation. To us, there is no ambiguity of purpose. We do not have the fantasy of competing with the economically advanced nations in the exploration of the moon or the planets or manned space-flight,” Vikram emphasized the importance of a space programme during his successful dialogues with the Indian government.”But we are convinced that if we are to play a meaningful role nationally, and in the community of nations, we must be second to none in the application of advanced technologies to the real problems of man and society,” he noted.The establishment of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) was one of his greatest achievements.The Sarabhai family was an important and rich Jain business family. His father Ambalal Sarabhai was an affluent industrialist and owned several mills in Gujarat.According to ISRO website, born on August 12, 1919, in Ahmedabad, Vikram was one of the eight children of Ambalal and Sarla Devi.He matriculated from the Gujarat College in Ahmedabad after clearing the Intermediate science examination.After that, he moved to England and joined the St. John’s College, University of Cambridge. He received the Tripos in Natural Sciences from Cambridge in 1940. The tripos framework includes a wide range of natural sciences from physical sciences to biology which are taught alongside the history and philosophy of science.With the escalation of the World War II, he returned to India and joined the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore and began research in cosmic rays under the guidance of Nobel winner Sir C.V. Raman.”To us there is no ambiguity of purpose. We are convinced that if we are to play a meaningful role nationally and in the comity of nations we must be second to none in the application of advanced technologies to the real problems of the man and society,” Vikram once said. Vikram Sarabhai.TwitterHe was a great institution builder and established or helped to establish a large number of institutions in diverse fields. He was instrumental in establishing the Physical Research Laboratory (PRL) in Ahmedabad. He was only 28 at that time.Dr Homi Jehangir Bhabha, widely regarded as the father of India’s nuclear science programme, supported Vikram in setting up the first rocket launching station in India.This centre was established at Thumba near Thiruvananthapuram on the coast of the Arabian Sea, primarily because of its proximity to the equator.”After a remarkable effort in setting up the infrastructure, personnel, communication links, and launch pads, the inaugural flight was launched on November 21, 1963 with a sodium vapour payload,” says ISRO.Vikram started a project for the fabrication and launch of an Indian Satellite. As a result, the first Indian satellite, Aryabhata, was put in orbit in 1975 from a Russian Cosmodrome.The Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) at Thiruvananthapuram is the major centre of ISRO, where the design and development activities of satellite launch vehicles and sounding rockets are carried out and made ready for launch operations.He was interested in science education and founded a Community Science Centre at Ahmedabad in 1966. Today, the Centre is called the Vikram A Sarabhai Community Science Centre.Vikram was honoured with the Padma Bhushan in 1966 and the Padma Vibhushan (posthumously) in 1972.He was also Chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission. Along with other Ahmedabad-based industrialists, he played a major role in the creation of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad.To pay homage to the father of India’s space programme, ISRO has also announced an award in his name on his 100th birthday.Married to Mrinalini Sarabhai and father of noted dancer and activist Mallika Sarabhai, he died in Kovalam, Thiruvananthapuram, on December 30, 1971.His son Kartikeya Sarabhai is one of the world’s leading environmental educators and a dedicated community builder.In all those years since Vikram passed away, the Indian space programme has aptly lived to his expectations.last_img read more

Avengers Endgame Full Movie Hits Piracy Networks Report

first_img ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Gets Re-Release With New Scene The movie stars an ensemble cast reprising their Marvel character roles: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Bradley Cooper, and Josh Brolin. It’s the sequel to the 2018 “Avengers: Infinity War,” which also was directed by the Russo Brothers and grossed $2 billion at the box office worldwide. A Disney rep did not respond to a request for comment on the report.The illicit copy of “Avengers: Endgame,” as poor as the quality may be, comes after a spoiler-rich video clip, subtitled in Arabic, hit Twitter and Reddit last week, according to reports.Joe and Anthony Russo, who directed the movie, last week urged fans in a Twitter post to not reveal “Endgame” spoilers. “Remember, Thanos still demands your silence,” they wrote, including the hashtag #DontSpoilTheEndgame in the tweet.“Avengers: Endgame,” which has clocked record ticket presales, is tracking for a phenomenal debut with a projected $250 million-$268 million box office take in North America alone in the first three days of release.RELATED:  Avengers Cast Plays ‘How Well Do You Know Your Co-Stars?’Volume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9Next UpKeke Palmer Was Inspired by Her ‘Hustlers’ Co-Stars01:04 twitter facebook reddit Linkhttps://variety.com/2019/digital/news/avengers-endgame-pirated-online-china-1203196595/?jwsource=clCopied EmbedCopiedLive00:0002:2502:25More Videos01:04Keke Palmer Was Inspired by Her ‘Hustlers’ Co-Stars01:11’Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Cast Reveals Who’s the Worst at Memorizing Lines02:15Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney Princesses05:35The Best of Star Wars at D2314:13’It: Chapter Two’ Stars Jessica Chastain and Sophia Lillis Describe Swimming in Fake Blood01:44’It: Chapter Two’ Cast Feeling Pressure For Box Office Success?Close  Is Disney’s Domination Good for the Box Office? Disney/Marvel’s “Avengers: Endgame,” poised to be the hugest movie opening in history, has hit piracy networks — two days before its U.S. premiere — with a copy evidently recorded in a Chinese movie theater now circulating online, according to a published report.Users in China began sharing a 1.2-gigabyte file of “Avengers: Endgame” on peer-to-peer piracy networks sometime between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. China time on Wednesday, piracy-news site TorrentFreak reported. The pirated copy has since spread to English-language torrent networks, according to the report.However, per TorrentFreak’s report, the quality of the video-cammed pirated copy is particularly bad. “The image flickers constantly throughout,” the site quoted a source as saying. “It’s semi-rotated and is littered throughout with watermarks for a gambling site that spin around the screen.” The reported piracy of “Avengers: Endgame” comes after its debut Wednesday in China, where it pulled in in more than $100 million and is set to be the biggest Hollywood movie ever in the country. “Avengers: Endgame” is slated to hit theaters in North America on Friday, April 26.

VIDEO Bad lip reading of Fergies NBA AllStar Game anthem might actually

first_imgPop star Fergie went viral for her epically horrendous rendition of The Star Spangled Banner at this year’s NBA All-Star Game. Fergie’s bomb was roundly mocked, but the folks at Bad Lip Reading have taken on the memorable flop and put their own twist on it, and it might actually be an improvement.It’s called ‘Nobody Wants My Bread,’ and even though it’s awesomely inaccurate, it’s pretty damn funny.

Switzerland also had the third highest life expectancy out of all countries reviewed, No Casey Ryan. the list of which is expected to be released by 5pm.” quipped the Yoda-esque character in Mel Brooks’ 1987 Star Wars spoof Spaceballs And he was right especially when it comes to A Galaxy Far Far Away By 1997 sales of Star Wars toys hit an estimated $9 billion making over $3 billion more than the movies themselves In that time-honored tradition of turning imaginary Jedi knights Sith warriors aliens and droids into real money toy companies from Mattel to Hasbro to LEGO are primed and ready to release a smorgasbord of toys tied to the upcoming The Force Awakens the first new Star Wars film in a decade But there’s a newcomer among their ranks too: Sphero a Boulder Colorado-based startup that makes smartphone-controlled spherical robots On Thursday Sphero rolled out its toy version of BB-8 the new film’s spinning droid who looks to be a spiritual successor to the perennially popular R2-D2 Sphero’s BB-8 is controllable with a Star Wars-themed smartphone app and the help of a Wi-Fi signal It responds to simple directional inputs as well as pre-set commands like “patrol” which sends it automatically zipping here and there around a room The company took care to breathe life into the toy having it emit the chirps and squeaks that make Star Wars‘ droids feel somehow alive It comes with a recharging dock and gets about an hour of play time on a three hour charge BB-8’s software is updatable via the app meaning the company can add new features over time The idea behind the BB-8 toy Sphero Chief Creative Officer Rob Maigret told TIME is that it’s “the closest we get to an actual droid” Everything about the toy from the Apple-style packaging on down is designed with that goal in mind “We’ve proven we can give personality to a ball” said Maigret BB-8 Sphero/Disney But the most impressive thing about Sphero’s BB-8 which is just slightly bigger than a baseball is the droid’s head As in the movie BB-8’s cranium sits generally near the top of the toy regardless of the robot’s orientation or speed like a geostationary satellite locked in position over Earth When the movie BB-8 was first seen in a Force Awakens trailer many fans thought the seeming impossibility of how the head worked meant the rolling robot was created via computer graphics Not so It’s a physical effect brought to the film after Disney CEO Bob Iger personally enlisted Sphero’s help Now Sphero has gone and brought basically the same functionality to a toy that will retail for $14999 Maigret wouldn’t tell TIME how the head worked but allowed that some curious consumers will almost certainly rip BB-8 apart and post their findings online One downside here: BB-8’s head isn’t permanently attached and a high-speed collision into a wall can temporarily decapitate it Sphero may not have the size money or brand recognition of a Mattel or Hasbro But Disney which owns the Star Wars franchise after a $4 billion deal in 2012 has given the company a real chance to break out this holiday season As a movie character BB-8 feels destined to become a fan favorite Some Star Wars fans have already tattooed likenesses of the droid on various parts of their body and the movie isn’t even out until December Fans’ interest in a movie character can easily translate into big money for toymakers just ask LEGO which saw about an 11% sales boost in the months after its well-received Lego Movie hit theaters Still there will be challenges Star Wars toymakers in the 1970s and 80s didn’t have to compete with computers and iPads for kids’ hearts and minds and therefore mom and dad’s dollars The asking price too is steep But Sphero’s timing is great with both The Force Awakens and the holiday season quickly approaching (other new Star Wars toys are being announced this week as well; the release schedule was surely planned out like a general plans an invasion of a foreign land) And Sphero will have the marketing power of the Mouse House behind it If the five-year-old company can successfully tap into what’s already becoming a fresh bout of Star Wars mania it could use BB-8 as a

surgery just a few days after birth the late-night host revealed Monday in an emotional Jimmy Kimmel Live monologue William "Billy" Kimmel was only about three hours old when a nurse noticed he had a heart murmur and looked slightly discolored Kimmel said Doctors soon determined he had a congenital defect called tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia that was preventing his lungs from getting enough oxygen Kimmel assured his audience that the story had a happy ending but the comedian struggled through tears as he recounted the harrowing tale and shared a photo of his son hooked up to wires and machines "He went in there with a scalpel and did some kind of magic I couldnt even begin to explain" he said of his sons cardiac surgeon at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles "It was the longest three hours of my life" The surgery was a success Kimmel said but his son will need another procedure in a few months and a third as a teenager Fortunately the prognosis for most patients with tetralogy of Fallot is very good Here are a few things to know about this fairly common heart defect and how its treated in infants just a few days old Healthcom: WATCH: Jimmy Kimmel Tearfully Reveals Newborn Son Billy Underwent Open Heart Surgery About 1% of babies are born with congenital heart defects Structural problems with the heart known as congenital heart defects occur in just under 1% of babies Among babies born with heart problems about 10% have tetralogy of Fallotthe most common reason for children to have lower than normal oxygen levels and be “cyanotic” or have a bluish coloring About 20% of those babies have the most severe form of the disease tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia "Overall the incidence of this specific diagnosis is somewhere less than 1 in 10000" says Dr Mary Donofrio director of the Fetal Heart Program at Childrens National Health System in Washington DC (Donofrio is not involved in Baby Kimmels care but she has treated babies with the same condition) While genetics can sometimes play a role most cases of congenital heart defects including most cases of tetralogy of Fallot are unexplained Tetralogy of Fallot is four defects in one The disease Kimmels son was diagnosed with is named for the doctor who first described it (Fallot) and the four ("tetra") different defects that it entails: First a hole exists between the bottom two ventricles or chambers of the heart Second the pulmonary valve or arteries are narrowed or blocked keeping blood from getting to the lungs Third the aorta the large artery that carries blood away from the heart is slightly out of place The fourth defect is called hypertrophy which means that the heart becomes thicker and more muscular because it has to work harder to pump blood This complication isnt generally seen in the United States however because the other three problems are fixed before the fourth can occur Most babies are diagnosed with tetralogy of Fallot in the hospital shortly after birth either because they have a bluish discoloration or because their blood oxygen levels (as recorded by a pulse oximeter device) are low "We really try not to have a child be discharged after birth without a diagnosis because some of those children might get very sick once theyre home" says Dr Joseph Rossano executive director of the cardiac center at Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia (Rossano is also not involved in Baby Kimmels care) When a baby is also diagnosed with pulmonary atresia this means the blood flow to their lungs is completely blocked rather than partially obstructed "This is the most severe form and the baby will be blue" says Donofrio "In this case the problem needs to be fixed right away right after birth" Surgery success rates are excellent even in newborns A persons heart is about the size of their fist says Rossano so one only has to think of the size of a babys hands to appreciate the job of a pediatric cardiac surgeon "There are very technical challenges but at high-quality centers all over the world the vast majority of children survive this procedure and have excellent outcomes" he says Heart surgery on infants often involves smaller-scale instruments and materials says Donofrio and doctors use special glasses that magnify tiny infant organs and blood vessels Besides surgeons an entire care team is also needed to tend to the unique needs of newborns many of whom are already sick For a baby with tetralogy of Fallot "the surgeon closes the hole in the hearts wall just like you would sew a patch onto a pair of pants" Donofrio says "Sometimes fabric is actually used to seal it off" Several procedures are usually required Depending on the severity of a childs condition more procedures may be needed as he or she gets older More extensive surgeries are often delayed until a child is a few months old and their heart is larger and stronger If artificial valves or connectors are used in these surgeries theyll likely need to be replaced at least once more "Unfortunately these materials dont grow along with the rest of the heart" Donofrio says "Hopefully someday well develop materials that will grow and expand over time" This is one reason Rossano cautions against saying that surgery can "cure" congenital heart defects "We can definitely treat it and many patients live with these conditions and do very well" he says "But they do need lifelong care" Most babies grow up healthy Even when infants are operated on shortly after birth most are discharged from the hospital within a week or two says Donofrio Theyll need follow-up appointments at least annually and should be monitored closely for complications both physical and developmental (Neurological problems are sometimes linked to surgeries at very young ages) But in general Donofrio says children with this diseaseand their parentshave a lot to be optimistic about "They can run around they can go to school they can be athletes" she says "This is something we see often and with advances in modern medicine and surgery its something we can take care of” Rossano agrees that patients with congenital heart disease can grow up fairly normally "I dont want parents to think their child will be so fragile they have to live in a bubble" he says "Our goal is to have these children living healthy active lives" This article originally appeared on Healthcom
