Why the big deal? Well, consider these fun facts:– Pizza is a $30 billion industry in the United States– Pizzerias make up 17% of all restaurants in the United States (61,269 pizzerias to be precise)– A whopping 94% of Americans eat pizza regularly…– While a staggering 93% have eaten pizza in the last month– Which explains the approximately 100 acres of pizza eaten a day (or 350 slices a second!)Given the love affair Americans have for pizza, it’s no surprise that 3 billion pizzas are sold in the US every year. Which makes Pizza Month a pretty huge deal. Pizzas are part of American culture (and diet), so celebrating it with its own month isn’t that far-out an idea.What better way then to commemorate our passion for pizza than by ordering one from Domenico’s today?

An earthquake which struck Taiwan yesterday has been recorded in Co Donegal.A seisamogram was captured by the St Columba’s College Physics Dept seismometer recording the event which took place at 19:57 hrs GMT).Taiwan sits in an active seismic zone and has a history of serious events. This quake was shallow (values from 17 to 23 km have been reported), and the damage seems not too extensive, but it did level the apartment building that is in the news today.Its magnitude was 6.4.The equipment regularly records earthquakes around the world.DONEGAL SCHOOL RECORDS TAIWANESE EARTHQUAKE! was last modified: February 6th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalearthquakeSt Columba’s CollegeStranorlar
Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement As of June 2009, AdMob reports that 54% of iPhone OS users were in the U.S. However, this number has dropped from 61% in January of this year, implying that international growth is now outpacing U.S. user growth. Following the U.S., the other top iPhone/iPod Touch-owning countries include the U.K., Germany, and France, each having over 5% of users. Not surprisingly, there are far more iPhones in use than iPod Touches. The worldwide ration of iPhone to iPod Touch is nearly 2 to 1, says AdMod. This ratio has remained consistent over the last several months. iPhone OS Percentage of Smartphone TrafficAnother interesting metric from the recent report is the amount of traffic generated by Apple mobile devices. The iPhone OS literally dominates the charts when compared to the other smartphones worldwide – in fact, it’s responsible for nearly half (47%) of smartphone requests. Nokia’s Symbian OS is still in a respectable second place with 34% of requests, but then the numbers dip down quite a bit. Blackberry’s RIM OS only accounts for 7% of requests, for example, and Android only has 5%. However, AdMob notes that requests from the Android operating system have increased 25% month over month and have, for the first time, pulled ahead of Windows Mobile, which dropped to 4%. The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology The 45 million iPhones and iPod Touches sold over the last two years is having a major impact on the worldwide mobile phone ecosystem. Today, nearly half of smartphone web traffic comes from an Apple device. Although the iPhone is still a popular device in the U.S., the number of international users is now growing at a faster rate than here, at least according to the latest Mobile Metrics Report (PDF) from mobile ad firm AdMob.iPhone OS Geographic DistributionIn the June 2009 Mobile Metrics Report, the focus was on the geographic distribution of the iPhone OS – the operating system that powers Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch. North America is still the largest region with a 58% share. Western Europe is in second at 26%. From there, the percentages drop dramatically, as the chart below illustrates. What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … sarah perez Tags:#Apple#mobile#Trends#web Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces What we can learn from this recent round of data is that the iPhone OS could easily be on its way to becoming a worldwide phenomenon. Although the U.S. still retains the number one spot when it comes to the country having the most iPhones and iPod Touches, the rate of adoption here has slowed. As worldwide growth speeds up, the chart may end up being less lopsided than it is now as other regions gain more users. Still, you can’t count out Apple’s competitors just yet. Android’s rapid growth is something to keep an eye on, especially as more models of Android phones are introduced. The Palm Pre – only responsible for 2% of smartphone requests – is also too new to the market for anyone to form any definitive conclusions about just yet (although the fact that it registered at all on a chart that features only the major smartphone players is worth noting). All that being said, it’s clear that the iPhone OS has a commanding lead when it comes to surfing the mobile web, and that’s something that won’t change overnight…if it ever changes at all.

It involved a United Ambulance and at least two other cars.Traffic was backed up for miles during the busy Tuesday morning commute.The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but it brought to light an important reminder about what to do when you see an ambulance.“We don’t want that emergency vehicle to have to swerve through traffic,” said Lt. Brent Williams, Public Information Officer for the San Diego Police Department.Lt. Williams said it’s not a courtesy. It’s the law.When you look through the rearview mirror and see those flashing lights, don’t panic. Calmly pull to the right and stop.“So we don’t want them to be involved in an accident with any other vehicles on the roadway that may slow them to get to where they’re going,” said Lt. Williams.Pulling over on a freeway can be a little more complicated, depending on the time of day and traffic. Lt. Williams said drivers should still push to the right and give the emergency vehicles access to the fast lanes.“Please slow down and move out of the way and allow emergency personnel to move through because they’re potentially going to save a life,” said Lt. Williams.When an ambulance is on a call, a life could be on the line. Giving an emergency vehicle the space it needs is vital because every second counts.“So it means that us getting there is important and, if for some reason, we’re caught in traffic, or become involved in a collision, we are gonna delay the help the citizens out there need,” said Lt. Williams.An AMR Ambulance was not involved in the crash, but the folks over at AMR wanted to reinforce the importance of pulling over.“When you hear and see an emergency vehicle approaching from behind with its lights flashing, it’s important that everyone pull over to the right as quickly and safely as possible,” said Madeleine D. Baudoin, Government and Public Affairs Manager for AMR. “Doing so allows first responders to rapidly reach victims in critical times of need.This is the law, so if you’re pulled over, you can be cited. Failing to move over when an emergency vehicle is passing is a Class 2 Misdemeanor. That also comes with a hefty fine up to $250.

Now scientists in the US have created a computer model that emulates the physics of the lizard and other burrowing animals. Play Video credit: Daniel Goldman Goldman’s team then built a snake-like robot capable of moving in a similar way to the living lizard, and were able to control the extent of bending and wriggling as the robot moved. They filmed the robot moving through sand to determine how the amount of curling affected their movements.The team followed with computer simulations of the lizards swimming through a field of beads 3mm in diameter. Even with 3 mm beads rather than tiny grains of sand, the simulations needed the computing power of 20-30 ordinary PCs to run, and still took several days. They used the simulation to analyze the movement of every bead affected by the passing lizard. Both the living lizard and robot swam through the glass beads in the same way as they did through sand.The simulation and robotic tests both gave the same answer: if the lizards curl too little they cannot provide enough power to push through the sand, while if they curl too much they do not move very far forward as they wriggle. The movements of the living lizard are close to optimum. Dr Goldman also said the studies suggest that sandfish lizards dive into the sand and wriggle down into it to escape from predators as fast as possible. Burrowing into the sand also enables them to escape the scorching heat of the desert.As a result of their experiments Goldman’s team were able to derive a mathematical theory and highly predictive computer model capable of emulating the physics of sand and objects or animals moving through it. Dr Goldman said the model is the first really detailed, quantitative and accurate model of objects moving through an environment other than air or water.The research could find applications in a number of fields involving objects beneath the surface, such as earthquake monitoring and landmine detection. It could also lead to robots designed to wriggle into the sub-surface on other planets, and the team is already talking to NASA representatives about the possibilities. Explore further Professor Daniel Goldman of the Complex Rheology And Biomechanics Laboratory (CRAB Lab) at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, said it is not easy to study the movements of burrowing animals because sand grains bounce off each other wildly rather than creating the kind of flowing movements found when animals move through water or air.Previous studies using X-rays revealed that the sandfish lizard moves through the sand by wriggling in S-shaped curves with their legs tucked in. Dr. Goldman said the wriggling movements of the lizard enable it to move at great speed, since it can cover two body lengths every second, but it was unclear at that time exactly how they achieve those speeds in sand.
