first_imgA mother is claiming that her infant became sick after injesting what she now believes was a container of baby formula that may have been filled with flour.The incident occurred last month in Phoenix, Arizona.According to Madeline Roque, she purchased the formula from her local Walmart but noticed her 9-month-old daughter developed a case of gas and began throwing up the formula.Roque says she didn’t notice that something was off until the second time she fed her daughter the formula and the samething happened.That time she dumped the formula out into the sink and realized that the consistency did not seem right.“When I poured the bottle in the sink and saw how it got, that’s when it hit me,” Roque told KPNX.Roque says she now believes someone may have swapped the baby formula out with flour.While the incident has not yet been confirmed, Walmart says they are now conducting their own investigation.Authorities in the area also reported that they have had several reports of people purchasing baby formula, swapping it out with flour and then returning it to the store for cash.last_img read more

first_imgBy John BurtonASBURY PARK – Song­writer/producer/musician Jon Leidersdorff saw a need in the local music business and education scene and began working to fill it.Now about five years later, Leidersdorff is putting the finishing touches on his Lake House Music Academy.Jon Leidersdorff, left, owner of the Lake House Musiccomplex in Asbury Park, and manager Scott Engel stand in front of the 619 Lake Ave. business.Leidersdorff, 44, who lives in Interlaken with his wife and two young children, has been on the music scene for much of his life. He realized that for he and his musician friends, “the only place to connect was at venues” where they played and went to see and hear each play.As he traveled extensively, he realized how other cities that had “places with scenes for people to communicate and come together are the most successful for music,” he said. When he looked around the Asbury Park area, he saw “there are so many musicians here, so many artists here, but there was a lack of infrastructure here to support the scene.”With that in mind, Leidersdorff took over a vacant and deteriorating 1930s former warehouse at 619 Lake Ave. and began the five-year process of restoration to create spaces for a variety of businesses centered around music and music education programs.His Lake House Music Academy cost “millions.” He has had to completely redo everything in the aging space. “It wasn’t even a shell” when he started, he said. “We had to do absolutely everything.”The three-story, approximately 15,000-square-foot location, with its exposed brick walls and newly varnished wood floors, is almost completed. It houses a retail space on the first floor for musical instruments – the walls are lined with hanging guitars of every variety – and sundry items and Russo Music, a café formerly on Cookman Avenue.The building’s second floor will be used by an Internet radio station; two recording studios, with available lodging for traveling bands; and rehearsal space that is available for rent by the hour. The studio space was designed by John Storyk, an architect, acoustician and a leader in his field, Leidersdorff said.Space on the third floor is designated for a business called Bands on a Budget, which helps band merchandize and sell souvenirs. “They’ll get your T-shirts ready,” was how Leidersdorff explained the business.The building’s upper floors also have office space and a conference room that will be used by a music lawyer, a graphic design artist and a web developer.A professional music manager, Brian Nelson, who represents among others, the British singer/songwriter Joss Stone, a “humongous artist,” Leidersdorff said, will also occupy the office.“Different businesses in­ter­acting creates opportunities that wouldn’t exist if we weren’t in the same space,” Leidersdorff said.One of the location’s main features is its music academy, featuring group performances and individual lessons.According to Leidersdorff, there are programs available for those as young as 6 months to adults of all ages. One of the liveliest groups, he said, is an over-40 group that comes to perform and learn.Stepping back and looking at his work, Leidersdorff said, “I see potential. I see a lot of possibility. Now it’s important to invite people who want to be creative and participate in this space.”last_img read more


first_imgSocial rugby also focuses on the fun factor, so there is an award for the most social team. This year, that went to the Chilliwack team – the Chilliwack/Chuckanut Platypuses.“(They) came dressed in their neon tights and form fitting costumes, showed no shame and hoisted a pint and shared a laugh with everyone else out there,” said Glaser.The tournament stands out because it is the only Rugby team in the Boundary. To make it even more special, the teams got to play with a custom-made, cowhide ball made in Greenwood at Ingram Creek Saddlery. This one-of-a-kind ball had its own personality, which added “unknowns” to the game, according to Glaser.There were four men’s teams at the tournament plus a couple mixed teams. One team was made up of “Old Boys,” referees and women. There was also a mixed team made up of women from Nelson and a few of the Scribes men. Glaser had hoped more teams would come out but a few last minute dropouts kept the teams small. He’s optimistic the tournament will gain in popularity and expects there to be twice as many teams next year.Glaser is happy with how the tournament went. The crowd had fun and felted welcomed by the Greenwood community. He credits Greenwood Coun. Barry Noll with helping the weekend go smoothly. Greenwood’s first annual social rugby tournament — held Aug 3 to 5 — was deemed a success with the Trail Colonials coming out ahead. Organized Oliver Glaser said the Colonials won a “very hard fought, final match” against the East Vancouver Scribes with the game ending 35 to 20.Glaser subbed in many of the games that weekend and felt the final match was the most intense of them all.last_img read more

first_imgWhat it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Looking at your iPhone without wanting to hurl every time sure was boring, wasn’t it? Thankfully, iOS7 has fixed that “bug.” Your background wallpaper is now capable of a distracting 3D parallax display. Opening and closing apps generates new and improved “swooshiness.”I don’t need every time I open an app to be a roller-coaster-like adventure, so I immediately started looking for a fix. What to Do: Under Settings, go to General, Accessibility and then Reduce Motion. Swipe the control so it turns green. At first I barely noticed a change, but after switching back and forth between having it enabled and disabled, I saw that the animation motion was indeed, albeit slightly, reduced.Photo by Emergency Brake on Flickr With iOS7, however, you’ll notice this function doesn’t work the same way anymore. Double tapping your Home button still brings up the app icons at the bottom of the screen, but now there are sample screens of what each app is running at the moment. And no amount of furiously button tapping will get them to jiggle. What to Do: Unfortunately, there’s no way to train iOS7 to your preferences in this case, so you’ll have to let it train you. Swipe the review screen above the app icon (not the icon itself) up in order to close the app. They’ve Automatically Included A Passcode I’m a (very) late iPhone adopter who just acquired my iPhone5 a couple months ago after exiting a long and tumultuous relationship with Android. I thought I’d finally become the master of my iPhone, but the update has turned me into a newbie again. It’s not just that bright, bubbly iOS7 looks like it was designed with toddlers in mind, though we can rule out that theory thanks to this unhappy tot. It’s more that it feels like Apple went and changed everything right after I got it the way I wanted it. But rather than stave off the inevitable, it’s time to embrace the changes—with a few caveats. It looks like some of the most annoying updates are actually fixable. Here are the three most annoying things I’ve found, and what to do about them.They’ve Changed The Way You Close AppsToo many programs running at once? Every seasoned iPhone user knows what to do: double tap the Home button, and X out the jiggling app icons. Even for a new user, it’s simple and intuitive.  Tags:#ios7#iPhone Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Related Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology lauren orsini Concerned about privacy? No? Well, iOS7 is going to help you anyway. When you set up your new software for the first time, you’re asked to input a four-digit passcode. From now on, by default, you must enter that code to unlock your phone, if even a few seconds have passed. It seems like a really small thing, but it can quickly grow irritating. Especially if you’re like me and have a solitary work environment and near-solitary living space, devoid of pets, children or strangers. What to Do: Under Settings, go to General and then Passcode Lock. You can adjust the phone to require an unlock less frequently, like perhaps every few minutes or every hour. Or, you can turn it off entirely, provided you haven’t already forgotten the code.The New Animations Are Nausea Inducing last_img read more
