We live in an interconnected world thanks to the “Internet of Things”

Feb 24, 2018

It is estimated that starting this year, the development and use of technology at home, health facilities and commercial areas will intensify. This is largely due to the well-known Internet of Things (IoT) and advances in scientific research and invention. Dr. Guillermo Cheang, Director of the School of Engineering at CETYS University campus Mexicali, spoke about the IoT within the framework of ExpoCETYS, an event where the different careers avvailable at CETYS University and its work field are made known. “The Internet of Things is a concept in which computers can communicate with each other through the Internet, for this they must have sensors, processors and connection. Some examples that we live today are the applications of health and physical activation, which monitor our passages, heart rate and communicate it to desktop computers, social networks or other devices such as smart watches, “he said. In the past, the use of cell phones was imaginary, older people did not conceive a world connected through these devices as it is possible today. Guillermo Cheang mentioned that the things we see today used to be fiction, and th future is now. He added that a  time will come when we will use satellites to connect people over long distances, as long as that between Mars and the Earth. “It is enough to dream it to make it possible,” he...

Ancient human remains found inside world’s largest underwater cave in Quintana Roo

Ancient human remains found inside world’s largest underwater cave in Quintana Roo

Feb 24, 2018

Sac Actun, the largest system of underwater caves in the world, running 347 kilometers beneath Quintana Roo, is a time capsule that may house 15,000 years of history. At least according to the most recent explorations of the Great Mayan Aquifer Project, which just last month revealed the total extension of the cave system. Largest underwater cave system found in Quintana Roo By finding the link between two underwater cave systems, the GAM project has found the largest underwater cave system in the world Largest underwater cave system found in Quintana Roo Now, the team led by archeologist Guillermo de Anda brings us the news of their latest finding: human remains of at least 10, 000 years old. This discovery could shed some light on the first settlers of the American continent. While the exact age of the remains hasn’t been confirmed yet, De Anda says the caves “flooded around 9 or 10,000 years ago, so the [remains] have been there for at least 10,000 years.” The archeologist of the National Institute of History and Anthropology (INAH) and explorer of the National Geographic Society claimed yesterday, during a press conference, that given the number of human remains found in those waters, they believe “there was a constant human interaction in the area, 10 or 15,000 years ago,” and added that the findings their explorations continue revealing will be key in reviewing theories about the origin of the first settlers of the Americas and on the ancient Mayan civilization. “An immense underwater cave houses evidence of the first settlers of the Americas, which may extend for over a thousand kilometers more on southeast Mexico. I congratulate the experts of the @INAHmx who don’t stop surprising us with their findings,” shared the Minister of Culture, María Cristina García, on her Twitter account. Source: El...

Mexican Televisa to create content for Amazon Prime

Mexican Televisa to create content for Amazon Prime

Feb 24, 2018

Mexican broadcaster Televisa disclosed that it plans to start producing original content to be distributed on Amazon’s platform, underscoring streaming services’ increasing efforts to woo Latin American audiences. Televisa, the largest producer of Spanish-language TV content, said it has struck a multi-series agreement to create “premium programming with an emphasis on multicultural characters” for Amazon Prime Video, an on-demand video streaming service available in more than 200 countries and territories. The tie-up addresses strategic priorities for both companies: Televisa’s desire to expand its distribution and Amazon’s push to deepen its presence in Latin America, where Prime Video is available in markets from Mexico to Argentina. Netflix, which has also made the region a priority, has already invested in original programming in Spanish and Portuguese with shows such as Mexican soccer drama “Club de Cuervos.” “It makes a lot of sense for these companies to try to make content that is more relatable to the audiences in Latin America, rather than expecting that content can travel across countries freely,” said analyst Carlos de Legarreta of GBM. “Sometimes it can, but not always.” Analysts say the Amazon deal marks a new strategy for Televisa, which has pledged to invest more in content as it adapts to the changing media landscape. In 2016, Televisa’s license for some content with Netflix lapsed as it launched its own streaming service, blim. “They were trying to foster their own platform,” de Legarreta said. “The trouble with this is that they lack the scale that players like Netflix and Amazon have.” Televisa said it will produce programming from an “original content” division with presences in Los Angeles and Mexico City. The broadcaster will eventually bring the programming to free and cable networks in Mexico as well as the United States through Univision, the U.S.-based Spanish-language network. Televisa has a large stake in Univision. The partnership is expected to help Amazon as it seeks to improve its position in Mexico and Latin America more broadly. The tech giant has invested heavily in Mexico, leasing a 1 million-square-foot warehouse near Mexico City and promoting its Prime delivery service. Source: Televisa...

Man claims to have time-travelled from 2030 and passes lie detector test

Man claims to have time-travelled from 2030 and passes lie detector test

Feb 23, 2018

According to Inquisitr, a time traveler who says he’s from the year 2030 has allegedly passed a lie detector test to prove his authenticity. He claimed that Donald Trump would be re-elected in 2020 and artificial intelligence will eventually take over the world. In a shocking video posted by ApexTV, a man whose face and voice was distorted to hide his identity claims that he risked his life to travel back in time to warn people of what’s to come. Noah’s Claims One of Noah’s claims was that artificial intelligence would grow and nearly everyone will have some type of Google glass-style robot. Apparently, the new AI technology will enable robots almost completely to run a household. However, the time traveler claimed that AI would never completely take over. Instead, they will learn to co-exist with humans. The time traveler claimed that bitcoin would become increasingly popular, but “coins and bills” will still be used in America. In 2030, the U.S. president is someone named Ilana Remikee. As for who will win the 2020 election, Noah said that Trump wins by a landslide. He also suggested that global warming has caused temperatures in North America to increase, while Europe’s temperatures have decreased significantly. According to the Daily Mail, Noah claims that humans will reach Mars by 2028. The same year, scientists will discover how to time travel. The time traveler reveals that electric cars will go as fast as diesel and petrol cars. He states that most cars are electric in 2030. In 2030, Noah suggested that most cancers will have a cure. He said that having cancer will no longer be a death sentence. The Lie Detector Test Result The lie detector test footage from ApexTV shows the time traveler sitting in a chair hooked up to what appears to be a polygraph lie detector around his bicep and finger. He was asked to confirm his identity and some of the events he claims would happen. According to the polygraph, he was telling the truth about everything he said. Many people questioned the results of the lie detector test since Apex TV doesn’t show the machine and only flashes “true” or “false” on the screen. Noah said that he has hard...
