iPhone 12 mini Users Report Touchscreen Issues on Lock Screen, Apple Yet to Acknowledge

first_img– Advertisement – iPhone 12 mini early adopters are reporting a touchscreen issue from day one of their usage. The issue seems to only occur on the lock screen, preventing users from accessing the camera or flashlight, or even just swiping up to unlock the screen. iPhone 12 mini users report that the inability to respond to touches on the lock screen crop up only when it has a case and screen protector on, and there is speculation that it could be a conductivity or grounding issue. Apple hasn’t acknowledged the issue yet, and there is no clarity on what is causing this, or whether it can be fixed with a software update.Apple forums, Macrumors forums, and Reddit are filled with user complaints of this touchscreen issue on the iPhone 12 mini. The problem only seems to be there on the lock screen, and arises when the iPhone 12 mini is inside a case and also has a screen protector. Affected users aren’t able to launch the camera or flashlight on the Lock Screen, and also aren’t able to swipe up to unlock. Touching something conductive like the phone’s frame or the camera lens frame helps resolve it.- Advertisement – Once unlocked, the touchscreen issues vanish and the iPhone 12 mini starts working smoothly once again. Apple hasn’t acknowledged the problem yet, and the possible workarounds include not putting a screen protector or a case. Users report that the problem arises only when both are installed in. Furthermore, users are also reporting that the iPhone 12 mini lock screen touch issue resolves itself when plugged into a wall charger. Hopefully, Apple will offer more clarity on the nature of the problem and offer a fix soon.The iPhone 12 mini has gone on sale in India just a few days ago. It is priced at Rs. Rs. 69,900 for the 64GB storage variant, Rs. 74,900 for the 128GB mode, and Rs. 84,900 for the 256GB storage option.Are iPhone 12 mini, HomePod mini the Perfect Apple Devices for India?

People likely to alter lifestyles to cut risk in a pandemic, study finds

first_imgJul 26, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – A recently published survey of Europeans and Asians showed that, when faced with an influenza pandemic, most would avoid mass transit and limit shopping to essentials, and many would avoid other public places, including restaurants, theaters, and the workplace.The study, published online Jul 20 in Emerging Infectious Diseases, found that “avoidance of public transportation was consistently reported across the region as the most likely precautionary behavior,” with about 75% of respondents choosing that option.Reactions to other risk-avoidance measures varied by region. For example, 79% of Europeans would likely avoid places of entertainment such as cinemas, restaurants, and theaters, while only 33% of Asians said they would. And 52% of Asians said they would stay home from work, compared with 35% of Europeans.The researchers also discovered that responses varied little for a hypothetically severe pandemic versus a milder one.Survey specificsIn late 2005, European researchers did telephone surveys in five European countries (Denmark, Spain, Great Britain, the Netherlands, and Poland) and three Asian regions (Singapore, Hong Kong, and Guangdong, China). They chose the Asian locales specifically because they had experienced outbreaks of SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) in 2003, which may have influenced citizens’ perception of what might be high-risk activities during a pandemic.A total of 3,436 people answered the survey, which represented 42% of those called (ranging from 21% in Great Britain to 81% in Poland). The number of regional participants ranged from 401 in Great Britain and Hong Kong to 502 in Poland.Respondents were asked to choose the riskiest among six different places during a hypothetical pandemic:Public transportationEntertainment venuesStoresWork or schoolHospitalHomeThen, after given a scenario of either a mild or more severe pandemic, participants were also asked to choose which of these risk-avoiding behaviors they would likely adopt in a pandemic:Avoid public transportationAvoid going out for entertainmentLimit shopping to the essentialsTake leave from workKeep children out of school, even if it remains openLimit physical contact with friends and familyAvoid seeing doctors, even when sick from something unrelated to fluStay indoors at all timesTo prevent respondents from forgetting some of the options and to limit the length of the call, interviewers asked for feedback on only three randomly selected items from each of these lists. This reduced the pool of people who were asked about each potentially risky place to about 1,700, and to about 1,300 for each precautionary behavior. Only 349 were asked about keeping kids out of school, because this question was asked of only parents of schoolchildren.”The main limitation of this sampling method,” the authors write, “is that it effectively reduces our sample size, but we expect sampling bias to be minimal because options (risky places and precautionary actions) were allocated randomly.”Regional differences and similaritiesIn six of the eight countries, public transportation was seen as the riskiest place in a pandemic, followed by places of entertainment. In China and Singapore, those selections were reversed. But in all countries, the home rated as the safest place.As far as precautionary behaviors, 79% of Europeans and 74% of Asians would avoid public transportation; the same percentage of Europeans but only 33% of Asians would avoid public entertainment settings. Other measures ranked lower: limiting shopping (69% in Europe, 59% in Asia), staying home from work (35% and 52%), keeping children from school (59% and 39%), limiting contact with family and friends (45% and 52%), avoiding physicians (22% and 34%), and staying indoors (24% and 35%).The authors highlight several findings:Asians were far less prone than Europeans to avoid entertainment venues, in spite of rating such places as riskier during a pandemic than did their European counterparts (52% to 43%).Individual characteristics such as age, sex, vaccine status, and health status had little effect on what precautions people said they would take, with three notable exceptions:Younger respondents were less likely to avoid places of entertainment and less likely to show up for work.Compared with those not employed full time (eg, retirees, homemakers, and students), fewer employed respondents reported being likely to avoid places of mass transit, entertainment, and work, or to stay at home.Respondents with higher education levels were more likely than their less educated counterparts to avoid entertainment and shopping establishments.This survey of the general public found about the same percentage tending toward not reporting to work in a pandemic—about half—as a study among US healthcare workers published last year in BMC Public Health (see link below).The higher percentage of Asians expressing reluctance to visit a physician during a pandemic “may have been related to their increased awareness of SARS, which was often acquired in a healthcare setting,” the authors write.Respondents’ perception of risk was not associated with precautionary actions, except in the case of avoiding public transportation.Survey’s strengths and weaknessesThe authors list two limitations of this type of study, saying, “The main drawback of this type of survey is the difficulty validating results,” citing as an example the wide range of response rates: 21% to 81%. However, they mention that “the similarity in findings between regions suggests that the low participation rate in some regions did not bias the findings.”Second,” they write, “because of the hypothetical nature of the questionnaire, concluding that persons actually would respond in the way that they have indicated here is not possible.” They point out, though, that their findings coincide with unpublished data from a study conducted among the Chinese community in the Netherlands just after the SARS epidemic. In that study, many had avoided travel to SARS-affected areas and avoided large gatherings.”One of the strengths of our study,” the authors write, “was its multicountry approach; with few exceptions, the patterns of potential precautionary actions were similar among respondents in each region.”Estimating health and economic effects”Knowledge of what persons are likely to do,” the authors say, “can be used to estimate the health and economic effects of various pandemic influenza scenarios. We describe what proportion will take precautionary actions as well as the socioeconomic background of these persons, which would be useful for improving communication efforts by public health official and clinicians in response to an outbreak.”The authors conclude: “Although the quantitative nature of the results may be difficult to validate, the qualitative findings are likely more robust. A new influenza pandemic would most likely result in persons’ limiting their use of public transportation, entertainment, and shopping for nonessentials.”These findings coincide at least in part with a Mar 22 report from the Trust for America’s Health (see links below), which estimated that states most heavily dependent on entertainment and tourism dollars will be hit hardest economically by a pandemic.Sadique MZ, Edmunds WJ, Smith RD, et al.

Indonesian sources say teen died of H5N1 infection

first_imgNov 12, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – A 15-year-old Indonesian girl from central Java recently died from an H5N1 avian influenza infection, according to news reports that cited a local health official and a physician who treated the girl.In June Indonesia’s health ministry stopped reporting new H5N1 cases promptly, opting instead for periodic updates. Over the past few days media reports had said the girl’s death was suspicious and that she lived near a poultry slaughterhouse, and today the Associated Press (AP) and Reuters reported that the girl had an H5n1 infection.If the World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes the girl’s infection, it will be listed as Indonesia’s 138th H5N1 case and 113th death.Agus Suryanto, head of the medical team that treated the girl at Doctor Karyadi Hospital in Semarang, told Reuters that health ministry labs confirmed that the girl died of an avian influenza infection. He told the AP that the girl was hospitalized 10 days before she died.Tatik Suryanti, a local health official, told the AP that tests today from two laboratories were positive for the H5N1 virus.According to a Nov 7 report from the Jakarta Post, Suryanto said the girl died on Nov 7 after having respiratory failure with a high fever. She was from Semarang, the Post reported.In other developments, hospital officials in Bandung, Indonesia, are investigating the apparently pneumonia-related death of a 32-year-old who slaughtered chickens and kept backyard birds, according to a Nov 8 Post report.Though initial tests on the man were negative for the H5N1 virus, Cissy Rachiana Prawira, director of Bandung’s Hasan Sadikin Hospital, told the Post that further testing was ordered because he had direct contact with poultry.Animal health officials tested about 500 chickens at the man’s house, one of which tested positive for the H5N1 virus, the Post reported.Indonesia’s last two H5N1 victims—two men who died in July—were confirmed by the country’s health ministry on Sep 9. Their H5N1 illnesses and deaths were recognized by the WHO on Sep 10.The WHO’s global H5N1 count is 387 cases and 245 deaths.last_img read more

Tomislav Fain, UHPA: We support the initiative to hold Tourism Days in Slavonia and I announce the holding of UHPA Days 2019 in Slavonia

first_imgA big positive “dust” was raised by the launch initiative to hold the Days of Croatian Tourism in 2018 in Slavonia. Day after day, support is coming from all over Croatia from the entire tourism sector from Istria to Dubrovnik, as well as from Zagreb to Slavonia, and even beyond the borders of Lijepa naša.Support for the initiative # DHTSlavonija2018 is joined by the Association of Croatian Travel Agencies (UHPA), which in addition to 193 regular members providing services of travel agencies and tour operators, brings together 104 associate members from the hotel industry, transport, vocational education and other institutions and associations related to tourism. Also, both on behalf of UHPA and on his own behalf, Tomislav Fain, President of UHPA, points out that they support the initiative to hold the Days of Croatian Tourism in 2018 in Slavonia and announces that the Days of UHPA will be held in 2019 also in Slavonia. “I personally support the initiative to hold DHT in Slavonia in 2018, but the initiative is also supported by the Association of Croatian Travel Agencies. UHPA will certainly try to hold UHPA Days in Slavonia in the coming years, but as the location has already been chosen for next year, I can announce that UHPA Days 2019 will certainly be in Slavonia. We must all work together to expand the Croatian tourism product, and continental tourism certainly deserves it”Points out Tomislav Fain, President of UHPA.One of the main goals of the DHTSlavonia2018 initiative is not only to keep DHT in Slavonia, but to make concrete progress. One of these changes is the proposal to hold B2B workshops with travel agencies in cooperation with UHPA two or three days before the official DHT in order to get to know and experience the destination Slavonia, and after DHT make concrete tourist offers for Slavonia. Are travel agencies ready to take that step, take the time to get to know the destination and thus help Slavonia? “UHPA members will gladly accept the proposal, although a number of members are already working on programs that include a visit to Slavonia. Certainly all stakeholders in tourism should be introduced to the beauties of this part of Croatia. Definitely, travel agencies are ready to take that step and help Slavonia to its full satisfaction”Fain points out.A lot of people ask me how I can help. My answer is come and experience Slavonia, both privately and in business. Organize a business meeting, congress, conferences, team building programs in Slavonia – this is the best concrete help you can give Slavonia – to come and leave money, ie to develop the entire tourism and business sector through tourism consumption. And that is why I would like to thank UHPA for holding the UHPA Days in Slavonia, because that is exactly what Slavonia needs – business and tourist activity.When asked what is needed to better start the development of continental tourism in Slavonia, Fain points out that the proposal to brand Slavonia as a tourist destination, ie a brand is certainly imperative because it is easier to brand a whole than each county separately.We are too small a country to be divided, it is much easier to brand Slavonia as a whole than each county separately. This is not just a problem of Slavonia, I think that other regions should connect and promote together ” Fain pointed out.UHPA Days 2019 will surely be in Slavonia – Tomislav Fain, President of UHPAAlso, Fain points out that Slavonia needs a strong DMC agency in order to develop tourism faster and better, and thinks aloud and proposes the idea of ​​a constructive dialogue with the Ministry of Tourism to be good. I definitely agree and share the same thinking, because Slavonia needs tourists, while sea destinations have a safe base of tourists every year, in order to trigger the snowball effect. “In one of our conversations, I mentioned this as an idea, because I believe that no destination can thrive without a strong DMC agency. To bring guests to a destination that is relatively unknown requires a lot of effort, a lot of work and huge financial resources. The Croatian National Tourist Board and the Ministry of Tourism already have in their program various models according to which they co-finance travel agencies. There may be an opportunity to help especially agencies that would take seriously the promotion of Slavonia ” concludes Fain.I thank UHPA and Tomislav Fain, as well as everyone for their support and support and for caring about Slavonia, Baranja and Srijem as well as the development of continental tourism. It’s all about people and synergy, support the initiative to hold Tourism Days in 2018 in Slavonia.  # DHTSlavonija2018 # DaniTurizmaSlavonija2018Related news:last_img read more
