Qld scientists create 'unfrog-ettable' app

The Frogs of Australia - eGuide features descriptions, location maps, call sounds and photographs for nearly all of Australia's 238 known frog species. James Cook University biologist Dr Conrad Hoskin said the frog spotting app, which took three years to create, was released last week and was already proving popular on iTunes. "There are a lot of people who like frogs," he told AAP. "They are cute little creatures and there is a lot more interest and familiarity with frogs these days. " The app has been designed for anyone with an interest in frogs, from school children to researchers. Dr Hoskin said apps were the future of electronic field guides as they were more mobile, cheaper and easier to navigate than textbook versions.

PhD student Stewart MacDonald, who helped create the app, said a lot of work went into developing the electronic guides. The Net Set App: A New Tool for Fashionistas.

Too Late for Moses: New App for Stutterers - Technology

NiNiSpeech is a mobile health solution that helps people who stutter (PWS) maintain fluent speech, and allows speech-language pathologists (SLP) to monitor their clients’ fluency in everyday settings, Yair Shapira, founder & CEO of NiNiSpeech, told ISRAEL21c. The mobile solution, which will cost $50 to $100 monthly, provides the stutterer with immediate feedback on speech fluency by means of a buzz or vibration. This gives the stutterer a chance to monitor performance, improve fluency, achieve speech goals and gain rewards. The second stage of the solution, which is unique in the field, measures stuttering.

“When you’re on a diet, you weigh yourself. The Chinese trials could be the most meaningful, said Shapira.

In Hawkins' case, the drummer provided a video session that enables fans to write their own songs with the Foo Fighter on drums.

Manzanera, who previously contributed a session to WholeWorldBand, is back for his second foray on the app. This time, the guitarist brings his cover of Kanye West and Jay Z's Watch the Throne single "No Church in the Wild," a song that featured a sample of Manzanera's "K Scope. " "The whole process is about musical recycling," Manzanera said of the app.

Kay Burley, the Sky News presenter, for instance, used it to show viewers behind the scenes of ITV’s Leader Debates in the build up to the general election, and David Cameron used Periscope to broadcast his first address from Number 10. Meanwhile, the Rolling Stones used Periscope to broadcast their secret show in LA last week, and more than 40 authors have done live broadcasts on Periscope, showing fans where they write their books and often reading from currently unpublished work. Periscope competes with another live-streaming app called Meerkat, which also launched in March. One of the key differences between the two is that Periscope saves the video streams for 24 hours, whereas Meerkat's live video disappears once you end the broadcast.

It does not need details of the problem but asks the user to consider each "solution" and rate it on five criteria: utility, virtue, rights, justice and the common good. Users then assign a weighting to each criterion. According to The New Scientist magazine, the categories are simplified versions of five different frameworks developed by moral philosophers over the centuries. The app, however, works based on the customised moral framework of your choice, so if you give justice more emphasis than the others it will score the solutions based on that.
