first_img 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 Industrylast_img read more

Communities flee eruption at Guatemalas Volcano of Fire

first_img<< Previous PostNext Post >> Tuesday, November 20, 2018 By: The Associated Press Communities flee eruption at Guatemala’s Volcano of Fire GUATEMALA CITY — About 4,000 residents fled Guatemala’s volcano of Fire Monday as red-hot rock and ash spewed into the sky and cascaded down the slopes toward an area devastated by a deadly eruption earlier this year.Guatemala’s volcanology unit said that explosions from the 12,300-foot (3,763-meter) high mountain shook homes with “constant sounds similar to a train locomotive.”Incandescent material burst as high as 1,000 metres (3,200 feet) above the crater and flows of hot rock and ash extended nearly 2 miles (3 kilometres) down one flank of the volcano. Hot blasts of pyroclastic material pushed down canyons on the slopes, while a column of ash rose nearly 23,000 feet (7,000 metres) above sea level and drifted toward Guatemala City to the east.Hundreds of families heeded the call of disaster co-ordination authorities to evacuate 10 communities, piling into yellow school buses for trips to shelters. The national disaster commission said 3,925 people had been evacuated by early Monday. As the hours passed, however, the intensity of the volcano’s activity decreased and many decided to return to their homes or seek shelter with friends or family.More news:  A new low for no-frills flying: easyJet assigns backless seat to passengerThe Volcano of Fire is one of the most active in Central America and an eruption in June killed 194 people. Another 234 are officially missing, although organizations supporting the communities have insisted there are thousands of missing persons.It spewed more ash and hot rock in October, prompting warnings for the nearby communities.The biggest danger from the volcano are lahars, a mixture of ash, rock, mud and debris, that can bury entire towns. On Monday, there had been no reports of such flows reaching populated areas, though authorities were taking no chances; they were harshly criticized for not calling for evacuations earlier in June.Four shelters have been set up for evacuees. Dora Caal, 26, and five members of her family took refuge under a nylon tent at a sports stadium in the nearby town of Escuintla.“Last night we heard the volcano roar, you could see fire, we couldn’t sleep,” said Caal, whose town of El Rodeo was largely evacuated.More news:  Virgin Voyages de-activates Quebec accounts at FirstMates agent portal“At dawn we said we’d better get out, we were afraid,” Caal said as the sun beat down fiercely at the improvised shelter. People like Caal are still reeling from the effects of the June eruption.“Back then I lost my job at a farm that was on the slopes of the volcano. They closed it and we can’t work there anymore,” she said.Enma Hernandez, 42, left her home in El Rodeo to evacuate, but her 20-year-old son stayed behind to protect the family home from looters. In fact, many men stayed behind in the town; there were mainly women and children at the shelter. Tags: Guatemala, Volcano Sharelast_img read more
