Comment Now playing: Watch this: Share your voice 2:25 AT&T is locked in a race with Verizon and other network operators to move to the next-gen wireless technology as quickly as possible. Its 5G network went live in a dozen US cities last month, but you need a 5G-compatible phone to use it. Manufacturers are expected to start releasing 5G phones this year.AT&T also said Tuesday it’s installing a 5G network at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas — home of the Dallas Cowboys. The network will deliver new types of connected entertainment at the stadium, AT&T said.”5G is expected to alter the in-stadium experience in dramatic, exciting ways by blurring the physical and digital experience in ways that are simply not possible on today’s networks,” Igal Elbaz, AT&T’s senior vice president for wireless technology, said in a statement.The stadium’s 5G network is expected to be up and running in the coming months.5G is your next big upgrade: Everything you need to know about the 5G revolution.CES 2019: See all of CNET’s coverage of the year’s biggest tech show. 5G 4G LTE AT&T Verizon 5G, the next-gen wireless tech, is making a lot of promises. Improving health care is one of them.AT&T is helping telemedicine take a step forward by partnering with Rush University Medical Center to create the first 5G-enabled hospital in the US. The technology is expected to speed up network communications and reduce latency to help improve care at the Chicago hospital, AT&T said Tuesday.”Imagine a hospital where rooms are intelligently scheduled, patient care is enhanced with artificial intelligence and augmented reality is used in training medical students,” Mo Katibeh, AT&T Business’ chief marketing officer, said in a statement. “It sounds like the future, but it’s not that far off.”In addition to better speeds, responsiveness and coverage, 5G is seen as the foundation for a vast swath of new tech such as self-driving cars and virtual reality. It promises to make data speeds 10 to 100 times faster than the typical 4G LTE networks today.”We strongly believe 5G is a game-changing technology that when fully implemented will help us support better hospital operations as well as provide the highest quality patient and staff experience,” Dr. Shafiq Rab, chief information officer at Rush University Medical Center and the Rush System for Health, said in a statement. “High-speed, low-latency 5G technology will help enable care to be delivered virtually anywhere at any time.” 1 Tags The Future of 5G: Empowering people with disabilities Mobile Tech Industry
Getty ImagesIn a spine-chilling incident, a headless body of a woman was found in a box on a bicycle near the national capital’s Jahangirpuri metro station on Saturday, June 8.The body was discovered at around 5 pm in the evening by the Delhi Police when a local shop owner noticed water dripping from the box and an odour emanating from it and informed the police. They soon arrived at the scene, opened the box and found the decomposed body.”Inside, a woman’s headless body was found wrapped in a blanket,” Bhisham Singh, additional deputy commissioner of police (North West) told Hindustan Times. He added, “There were no identification proofs in the box.””Prima facie it appears that the woman had been killed two-three days ago and was dumped here. The body had started to decompose and the skin had turned black,” an officer was quoted as saying by PTI.Investigators revealed that the box was white in colour and that it was taped in many places so that it wouldn’t come apart when the body was stuffed in it.A probe is underway and the footages from a CCTV camera in the vicinity are being scrutinised to check who brought the bicycle. The body has also been sent for an autopsy to Babu Jagjivan Ram Memorial Hospital.
https://ondemand.npr.org/anon.npr-mp3/npr/me/2019/08/20190826_me_in_rural_utah_p… In Rural Utah, Preventing Suicide Means Meeting Gun Owners… by NPR News Erik Neumann 8.26.19 7:32am A gun show might not be the first place you would expect to talk about suicide prevention — especially in a place like rural northeast Utah, where firearms are deeply embedded in the local culture.But one Friday at the Vernal Gun & Knife Show, four women stood behind a folding table for the Northeastern Counseling Center with exactly that in mind.Amid a maze of tables displaying brightly varnished rifle stocks, shotguns and the occasional AR-15 assault-style rifle, they waited, ready to talk with show attendees.”Lethal access to lethal means makes a difference. Suicide attempts by any other means are less lethal,” says one of the women, Robin Hatch, a prevention coordinator with Northeastern Counseling for nearly 23 years.Utah has one of the highest rates of death by suicide in the U.S. And 85% of firearm deaths in the state are suicides. According to Utah’s health department, suicide rates can vary widely depending on where you are. For example, the suicide rate in northeast Utah is 58% higher than the rest of the state.Suicide by gun is a particular problem: The rate in rural areas is double that in urban areas, according to state officials.A major factor is the easy access to firearms in Utah — and the grim fact that suicide attempts involving guns have a higher mortality rate than by other means.This was the first time Hatch and her colleagues at Northeastern Counseling were doing outreach at a gun show.As the auditorium filled with firearm sellers and hunters, the counselors stacked their folding tables with neat piles of free cable locks that thread into a gun to prevent rounds from being loaded, and water-resistant gun socks screen-printed on the outside with the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number.The idea behind distributing both devices is to slow a person down during a moment of crisis. “Anything that we can do to get people off track a little bit, thinking something different,” Hatch explains. “We believe that will help make a difference in our suicide rates.”Unpredictable employment adds stressThe northeast corner of Utah is home to oil and gas fields, cattle ranches and the Uintah and Ouray Reservation.Health experts say factors contributing to the high suicide rates in the area include limited access to mental health services in rural communities and the unpredictability of the ranching and oil and gas industries. The boom-bust cycles, along with physical and mental stress, take a toll on workers.”Injuries and accidents, keeping your job, having a job tomorrow. It’s so up and down,” says Val Middleton, a former oil and gas safety instructor at Uintah Basin Technical College in Vernal. “The guys don’t eat right typically. No exercise, hard work, long hours, no sleep. That’s what adds up. The divorce rate is high, really high. The family life is low.”Add high gun ownership and the risks are increased.Dee Cairoli is a pastor at Roosevelt Christian Assembly in a neighboring town. He also works part time as an NRA concealed-carry handgun instructor. When hosting classes, Cairoli explains how gun owners can intervene if another gun owner shows signs of a mental health crisis.”I’ve done it a couple of times as a pastor where I’ve gone to somebody’s house and said, ‘Look, maybe you need to listen to me for a minute. I know what I’m talking about. I promise I’ll keep it in my [gun] safe, but let me have your gun.’ “Cairoli speaks with authority. When he was 15, his father killed himself with a gun.”It was very tragic, but I never hated the gun. I never blamed the gun. I knew that it was just his desperate moment and that he had just chosen that,” Cairoli says.He believes that personal tragedy, along with the credibility he brings as a gun user and local pastor, allows people in crisis to trust him.Not Just A Rural IssueHow to talk about suicide with guns isn’t just an issue in rural parts of Utah. It’s a topic that state Rep. Steve Eliason of Sandy, a suburban city near Salt Lake, also tackles. Eliason has sponsored legislation focused on firearms, suicide prevention and mental health services. It is personal for him, too.”I’ve lost three extended family members to suicide. All firearm suicides. Young men,” Eliason says.This year, he worked on bills to fund firearm safety and suicide prevention programs, supply gun locks, create new mental health treatment programs and expand crisis response in rural Utah.Eliason describes these issues as nonpartisan, but with Utah’s proud gun culture, he’s also careful with his approach. He describes advice he got from a politically liberal friend in public health about how to bring together opposing perspectives about firearms.”Obviously, there’s kind of two schools of thought on firearms,” he says. “Those two schools of thought, if they were circles, they would overlap into a small oval — that oval is the culture of safety. And she says, ‘I would recommend that you dwell within that oval.’ That’s what I’ve tried to do.”That perspective led to the Utah legislature appropriating money to fund a study from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, in consultation with the Utah Shooting Sports Council. That study spurred discussions about the problem of firearms and suicide and formed the basis of at least one of Eliason’s 2019 bills, to expand access to gun locks.Like Eliason’s work at the state policy level, Hatch’s suicide prevention work in her community depends on relationships and trust.Hatch’s table at the gun show was less busy than others. But the women gave out hundreds of gun locks and gun socks over the course of the day. And attendees said having them there was a fitting way to bring up the subject of suicide and firearms.”You need to know your community, and you need to address it in a way that your community will accept it,” Hatch says.This story comes from NPR’s reporting partnership with KUER and Kaiser Health News.
