KSDK reported:
The uncle of an American graduate student mauled by chimpanzees at a South African sanctuary says the man’s parents are flying from the U.S. to visit their critically injured son.
Carl Oberle of suburban St. Louis said his 26-year-old nephew, Andrew F. Oberle, remained hospitalized Saturday.
Officials say the University of Texas at San Antonio anthropology graduate student was badly injured Thursday when two chimpanzees pulled him under a fence while he was giving a lecture at the Jane Goodall Institute Chimpanzee Eden.

Oberle suffered several bite marks all over his body.

Eric Schmidt on Technology vs. Dictatorship

Eric Schmidt on Technology vs. Dictatorship: How does the executive chairman of Google see the role of smart phones and social media in driving democratic change globally?

It's been year-and-a-half since the outset of the Arab revolutions that brought down Zine el Abidine Ben Ali's longstanding regime in Tunisia and Hosni Mubarak's in Egypt; three years since the beginning of the Iranian election protests of 2009-2010; and more than three years since the start of civil unrest in Moldova, following the announcement fraudulent parliamentary election results, where protestors' self-organizing via Twitter earned it the media tag "the Twitter Revolution." It's widely accepted by now that these and other pro-democratic protest movements globally would have been impossible without smart phones and social media. But the significance of these technologies to democratization is still a matter of plenty of debate.

If it occurred to you to wonder what the view on this issue looks like from the top of the tech industry, The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg asked Google's executive chairman Eric Schmidt at the Aspen Ideas Festival on Friday.

In the broader discussion that followed, Schmidt showed a radical optimism about the interplay of technology and democratic society in the U.S. -- and politically developed countries generally. But on the question of tech's role in translating democratic aspirations into democratic change in autocratic states, he was decidedly tough-minded.

Notes from the Aspen Ideas Festival -- See full coverage
Before Tunisia's Jasmine Revolution, Schmidt pointed out, the regime had extensive control of civil society and virtually total control of media -- all media but the Internet. An active opposition had meanwhile been struggling against the government for years, but it had no effective way of organizing itself.  "One way to understand the Arab revolution," Schmidt said, "is that it was a failure to censure and control the internet." The lesson for dictators? Get ahead of the curve on that. The good news for democracy advocates: This is hard to do.

But as Schmidt acknowledged, it's also much harder to finish an Internet-based revolution than it is to start one. Goldberg remarked that the uprisings across North Africa and the Middle East were, if not truly "leaderless," intensively crowd-sourced efforts -- and certainly weren't driven by, or didn't give rise to, organized leadership in the mode of Lech Walesa and Solidarity. Is there some way to leverage new technologies to organize a revolutionary leadership? Schmidt conceded that there's not an obvious answer -- and implied that the answer might be no. The success of a democratization movement is the competition of political parties, and in the contemporary proto-democratic Arab world, Islamist parties are faring much better than Western-style liberals. Schmidt's among those who think this is nevertheless a fine thing: Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood has won the support it's won because of popular support: This is a democratic choice, but it's also one that puts the Islamist party in a position of accountability, where there actions will matter more than their ideology; and if they fail to govern effectively in the domestic sphere or to represent Egypt's interest effectively in the international sphere, Egyptians will, as other democracies do, throw the bums out.

It's a position that may be overly sanguine about what we can reliably expect given Egypt's current state of democratic consolidation, but it's certainly not overly sanguine about the role of technology in political development.

Schmidt's account of the Arab Spring, and the Egyptian revolution in particular, emphasizes the cluelessness of Arab autocracies about the destabilizing potential of new technology. So how should we understand this tech's potential in, say, China -- a politically repressive single-party system with ability to track dissidents and move against them on the basis of information that the regime can pull from the social networks themselves.

"Let me frame an Arab Spring question in the Chinese context," Goldberg said. "Is there any way that what happened in Tahrir Square could happen in Tiananmen Square. Chinese dissidents could organize via social media, Schmidt said. They'd use the Twitter-like Chinese service Sina Weibo. But the results of any attempt to organize would be a few protestors, a handful of reporters, and about 50 police officers. 

Still, Schmidt remarked, holding up his mobile phone, he believes this device will change the world, because it will be ubiquitous. Citizens (and not-yet-citizens) everywhere will be able to use them as their best protection. When state actors exert illegitimate power, it will become easier and easier for people to publicize that -- and embarrass the government and its leadership.

What about the counter-example of Syria, Goldberg asked. YouTube is replete with video footage of regime atrocities, while Bashar al-Assad ‎and the Syrian Ba'ath party seem anything but embarrassed. "There's always an evil person," Schmidt answered. "But that doesn't mean everyone's evil. Most governments, even autocratic governments, can be embarrassed."

Google Glass Sessions teach us why we need augmented reality

Google Glass Sessions teach us why we need augmented reality:
Google knows that it’ll take some education before we’re all wearing Google Glass headsets, and so the company has kicked off what it’s called Glass Sessions: slices of real life augmented with Glass. First up is persistent video and camera functionality from the perspective of a parent, with Glass being used to capture fleeting moments and share milestones across continents. Check out the video after the cut.

Laetitia Gayno, the mom in the video, is the wife of a Google employee, and shows how she uses Glass to snap photos of her baby without the camera getting in the way. Meanwhile, she can use Google+ Hangouts for group video calls with her family back in France.

Google’s focus with Glass has, in public demonstrations at least, been concentrated on the photography elements of the wearable. That’s arguably the easiest thing to show off; without seeing what it’s actually like to have a small virtual display “hovering” just above your normal line of vision, justifying the value of Glass’ other mediated reality abilities is considerably trickier.
Last week, Google began taking preorders for Google Glass Explorer Edition, the first generation of developer devices, which are expected to begin shipping in early 2013. Priced at $1,500 – though with the expectation that the consumer product will be considerably cheaper – they’ll give developers the opportunity to experiment with bringing their apps to persistently-connected users.

Eating Bugs To Save The World?

"...Much of the conversation about how to solve the coming food crisis caused by soaring population, diminishing resources, and a warming planet focuses rightly on technology, reducing waste, and improving food access and distribution methods. But equal urgency needs to be devoted to simply broadening our appetites. Two food sources that strike many as unpalatable—insects and seaweed—could play a critical role in not only feeding the 2.5 billion extra humans expected by 2050, but doing so in a green, climate-friendly way...Insects are overwhelming viewed as filthy, creepy, dangerous, inedible—and not just to vegans. But this prejudice against eating insects—four-fifths of all known organisms on earth—is slowly starting to change. A growing number of people are beginning to recognize that bugs, such as mealworms, grasshoppers, and crickets, may be the ultimate sustainable protein source...".* Ana Kasparian and Desi Doyen discuss on The Young Turks.

Overseas Lift Off

Overseas Lift Off: You get the impression animated features might be on a roll?

Twentieth Century Fox's Ice Age: Continental Drift is off to a great start at the international box office, where it has earned $11 million in only two days from 12 markets, including strong performances across Latin America and in France.

The fourth installment in the family franchise secured the the second-highest opening day for an animated film in France ($4.5 million), Colombia, Argentina and Chile and the second-highest opening day for a Fox animated title in Mexico ($1.6 million) and Central America. ...

There have been three releases of high-profile features within the past month, and three big openings.

If animation creators aren't careful, they'll soon have studio chieftans believing that long-form cartoons are a wide, well-lit highway to corporate riches. (Personally, I think were there already.)

Where this leaves live-action filmmakers in coming years I do not know. But the landscape is changing; feature directors working in animation are accorded more respect than they were a few decades ago. Nothing alters corporate mind-sets like big box office.

Sony continues to restructure, agrees $730m sale of chemical products businesses

Sony continues to restructure, agrees $730m sale of chemical products businesses: sony logo 520x245 Sony continues to restructure, agrees $730m sale of chemical products businesses
Sony has continued to rebuild and reorganise itself after it announced an agreement to sell its chemical products business — which include Sony Chemical & Information Device Corporation (SCID) — to the Development Bank of Japan for an expected price of 58.0 billion yen, circa $730 million.
Many people may not even be aware that the Japanese electronics giant has chemical businesses (yes, more than one) but that will no longer be the case come the fall, when both sides anticipate that the deal will go through.
In between now and then, Sony will get its house in order. The firm will transfer SCID business units that develop non-chemical products, which include optical resin and magnetic device, to the main company and, likewise, all chemical related business lines within Sony will be transferred over to SCID.
The move is latest in a line of organisational changes that new president Kazuo Hirai is overseeing at the stalling company, which recorded a whopping $6.4 billion net loss (PDF) for the full year ended March 31, 2012.
The biggest move saw Sony divorce itself out of Sony Ericsson, the mobile firm it ran with Swedish telecom company Ericsson, and, as a result, Sony Mobile Communications was born in February.
The company has also made plans to lay-off 10,000 staff and invest $926 million in restructuring.
Sony ended its LCD joint venture with Sharp last month, but not without recouping its full $125.79 million investment in the initiative. It moved on quickly and this week inked an agreement to work with Panasonic to develop new OLED panels, which will go into mass production next year.
The company says that is is “currently evaluating the impact” that the SCID transaction will have on its next set of annual financial results, which are not due until March next year.
Hirai and others will hope that next year’s financials are much improved, as the disasterous results of 2012 have cost the executives their bonuses, Bloomberg reports.

BAMcinemaFest '12: Critics' Notebook

BAMcinemaFest '12: Critics' Notebook: by Steve Dollar


Shorts—as in short
films—have become a peculiar manifestation of film festival
culture. Almost any festival you go to will have multiple shorts
programs on the schedule. And guaranteed, the filmmaker you meet who
wins the short-film prize will be back soon with something special,
whether it's the guy who made Hesher
(see the Down Under zombie mash note I
Love Sarah Jane
) or the guy who
made Beasts of the Southern
(anticipated by Glory
at Sea
). I don't really know
under what circumstances they are exhibited anywhere else outside the
institutional/museum/repertory world. Nonetheless, YouTube and Vimeo
appear to be terrific bounties for short-film surfing and many an
auteur's DVD bonus features would be sorely lacking if they didn't
include available and relevant short exercises that laid the groundwork
for the masterpiece at hand.

Josh and Benny Safdie had the
bright idea of packaging their recent short The
Black Balloon
(a prize-winner at
Sundance) with The
Red Balloon
Albert Lamorisse's 1956 classic to which it pays homage, along with
's The

and the animated 1935 Balloon
Pincushion Man
) and circulating
the whole shebang under the title: "Take Me to the Balloony Bin!" It's
touring the United States now, through the agency of the CInema
Conservancy, and just screened as part of BAMcinemaFest—now
in its fourth year at Brooklyn's BAMcinematek.

BREAKING: Ann Curry Confirms She's Leaving 'Today'

BREAKING: Ann Curry Confirms She's Leaving 'Today':
Ann Curry
After a week of speculation, Ann Curry confirmed late Wednesday that she is, in fact, leaving her role as co-anchor on the "Today" show.
Curry broke the news to USA Today in a 40-minute phone interview, saying she expects Thursday to "be a bit of a tough day ... I'm going to have to tell our viewers. That's what makes me more emotional than anything. I don't want to leave them. I love them. And I will really miss them."
But while Curry may be down, she is definitely not out.
The 55-year-old journalist will remain with the network in a new role as anchor-at-large and NBC News national/international correspondent.
Curry's new contract, that she says lasts "a significant amount of time," more than just a few years, was negotiated on her behalf by lawyer Robert Barnett.
She declines to discuss her salary but says reports of $10 million or $20 million a year are inaccurate, "I can say that I'd love to earn that much."
But before a contract was in place or Curry had a chance to announce her anchor position departure, rumors swirled regarding her ousting by NBC.
"I don't know who has been behind the leaks, but no question they've hurt deeply," Curry revealed in the interview with the paper.
As for the show's recent ratings drop, she says, "I know I am not to blame for the ratings worries. And my bosses have said to me there are many factors involved. There is no doubt that the rating wars have become meaner and less focused on our responsibilities as journalists."
"You know, Matt and I have had great on-air chemistry for 14 years, been part of the No. 1 winning team for a history-making number of years," Curry continued. "That said, I just finished my freshman year as co-host. In every single co-host's first year, there have been kinks to be worked out, and perhaps I deserve as much blame for that as anyone."
So does she think she was given enough time to work out those kinks? "No, I do not," she revealed.
Would she have liked more time? "Oh, sure I would have," she says.
But instead, Curry will be heading up a new seven-person unit for NBC while Savannah Guthrie is still the rumored frontrunner to take her coveted place.

Authorities Say 2 Badly Burned Toddlers Serve As Cautionary Tale For Parents On Boiling Water

Authorities Say 2 Badly Burned Toddlers Serve As Cautionary Tale For Parents On Boiling Water:
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Authorities are cautioning families to be careful while handling boiling water when children are nearby.
One Southland family is serving as a cautionary tale after two of their young children were badly injured by scalding hot water.
The children’s mother was at a press conference Wednesday warning other parents about how easily it is for children to get burned.
The woman’s 18-month-old son and 5-year-old daughter were in the kitchen while her adult sister was boiling water to make macaroni.
The pot of hot water somehow fell onto the two children, burning more than 80 percent of the boy’s body and burning the girl’s chest and arms. The boy suffered second- and third-degree burns.
The mother said her son is still in the intensive care unit.

Kevin Pereira hosting Quantum Conundrum show

Square Enix and Los Angeles art/gaming collective iam8bit are teaming up to create a new web-based game show in association with the dimension-bending Quantum Conundrum, out next month. The show will be hosted by Kevin Pereira (formerly of G4's Attack of the Show), and will feature contestants battling it out in "real-life fluffy, heavy, anti-gravity and slow motion dimensions" somehow.

The show, which is called "The Super Dimensional Quantum Learning's Problems and Solutions Gametime Spectacular!!" (no, really; here's the trailer) will also feature Ike, a character from the game who will appear in live-action puppet form. It certainly looks and sounds wacky, depending on your various definitions of the word "wacky."

The show will be available to watch soon. In the meantime, if you need something Quantum Conundrum related to watch, try our livestream! We'll be playing the game live on the Interwebs at 9:30pm EDT.

New mobile app helps physicians stay on track

New mobile app helps physicians stay on track:
Healthcare technology company Kareo launched an iPhone app yesterday that will make it easier for medical professionals to keep track of their appointments. The app provides mobile access to full clinic schedules, as well as patient status and visit reasons.
It is offered as a companion to the current Kareo software, which offers cloud-based practice management and medical billing tools to over 10,000 medical providers. Physicians can download the app using their Kareo username and password and instantly have access to health records and appointment times, as well as other relevant information.
“We asked our physicians to give us their top priority for a mobile app,” said Dan Rodrigues, CEO and founder of Kareo  “Hands down, their number one request was the ability to see their office’s patient appointment schedule on their iPhone.”
The app is intended to help healthcare providers stay on time and informed.
Kareo was started in 2004 by Rodrigues in an effort to simplify the medical billing process. To date, it has raised almost $20 million from OpenView Venture Partners and Greenspring Associates and has over 100 employees. It is based in Irving, Calif.
