Killexams : Small businesses push back on Apple’s privacy changes around advertising

With iOS 14.5, Apple introduced its App Tracking Transparency to help users choose whether they wanted to be tracked or not by apps and advertisers. Ever since then, the company is making tons of privacy changes to ensure users have better control of their data.

With that, Facebook and other companies are losing money with their advertisement initiatives. But, apart from the big players, small businesses are also suffering from these changes, according to a new study.

The Financial Times notes that “many small companies which are reliant on online ads to attract new customers did not initially notice the full impact of Apple’s restriction until accurate months.”

Analyzed data from 1,300 small businesses made by Varos, a data-sharing platform, shows that the cost to acquire new customers through online advertising is “significantly higher” this year than last, while revenue has also declined each month in the second quarter of 2022, leading to a 13% drop in June.

“I personally did not feel the impact of the Apple changes in 2021 as much as we are in 2022. This year is just brutal,” said Nadia Martinez, founder of Kallie, a handcrafted shoes company in California that she launched out of her laundry room in 2014. “Ads have become more expensive, we have less access to data, and they aren’t as effective as they used to be,” she said.

The publication says that, on the other hand, Google Search and Amazon’s advertising business, which don’t rely on third-party tracking, boomed in the second quarter. Even Apple’s own ad business called Search Ads has also stolen market share.

Apple stated to The Financial Times that “a user’s data belongs to them and they should get to decide whether to share their data and with whom.”

That said, the publication continues to enumerate other small businesses that are still suffering from these changes, as you can read more about it here.

Killexams : Dietitians Explain Whether Apple Cider Vinegar Actually Works for Weight Loss

Photo credit: YelenaYemchuk - Getty Images

"Hearst Magazines and Yahoo may earn commission or revenue on some items through the links below."

In a perfect world, losing weight when you want to would be a simple process. In reality, it’s complicated and usually requires that you change up what you eat (more on our best diets for weight loss here), how you think about food, and your exercise plan. So, it’s understandable to be intrigued if you happen to come across claims that there’s a connection between apple cider vinegar and weight loss.

Many holistic health experts and Instagram influencers swear by the stuff, but whether ACV will really help you squeeze into a smaller pair of jeans isn’t so straightforward. Here’s what experts and the research actually says about apple cider vinegar for weight loss.

The science behind apple cider vinegar for weight loss

Let's get one thing clear up front: There’s only a small amount of evidence directly tying ACV to weight loss in humans. One study in the Journal of Functional Foods, which followed 39 adults, found that participants who consumed a tablespoon of ACV at lunch and dinner, while cutting 250 calories per day, lost 8.8 pounds in 12 weeks. On the other hand, those who cut the same number of calories but didn’t consume ACV lost only 5 pounds.

In another study in Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Biochemistry, 144 adults with obesity were randomly assigned to drink either a placebo or one to two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar daily for 12 weeks. At the end of the study, those who drank two tablespoons had lost close to 4 pounds, while those who drank one tablespoon lost 2.5 pounds. (Those who drank the placebo actually gained a little bit of weight.) However, those findings alone don’t prove that ACV is a magic fat melter. “These studies were done on very small populations,” says Erin Palinksi-Wade, R.D., C.D.E., L.D.N. “But the consistent results indicate that ACV may be a beneficial tool in reducing body weight.”

On top of that, ACV seems to have properties that could potentially support your weight-loss efforts. For instance, a 2013 study from the Journal of Functional Foods suggests that drinking apple cider vinegar before eating is linked to smaller blood sugar spikes. Another 2010 study from the Annals of Nutrition & Metabolism shows that having two teaspoons of ACV during meal time could help reduce sugar crashes and keep blood sugar levels stabilized. Why this happens isn't totally clear, but nutrition researchers like Carol Johnston, Ph.D., who has studied ACV at Arizona State University for years, suspects that compounds in the vinegar interfere with the absorption of some starches.

That matters because blood sugar highs and lows tend to lead to cravings for sugary snacks. “So if apple cider vinegar can help control blood sugar, this could help manage cravings and portion control, potentially leading to fewer calories consumed,” explains Amy Goodson, M.S., R.D., C.S.S.D., L.D.

What's more, a 2014 study from the Journal of Food Science suggests that vinegars, such as apple cider vinegar, can help reduce the effects of diabetes and prevent cardiovascular disease due to its antioxidant activity. Apple cider vinegar has high levels of a polyphenol called chlorogenic acid, which could help Excellerate heart health by inhibiting the oxidation of bad LDL cholesterol.

It’s also possible that ACV might directly make you want to eat less. One study by Johnston in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics found that participants who drank the fermented liquid before a meal consumed up to 275 fewer calories throughout the rest of the day. But again, the reasons behind that are murky. ACV could boast compounds that actually suppress your appetite. But drinking it could also just be so unpleasant that you end up getting turned off from food for the rest of the day.

Ultimately, all the research on ACV and weight loss is from small studies—and it’s really hard to draw conclusions from those, says Jessica Cording, R.D., author of The Little Book of Game-Changers

“We really don't have any conclusive data on this,” she says. “There’s some interesting data on blood sugar control, but these are all small studies.”

Cording also points out that one study tied apple cider vinegar to weight loss due to it being an appetite suppressant “but that was because people found that drinking apple cider vinegar made them nauseous,” she says.

Apple cider vinegar (aka ACV) is a fermented liquid made from apple juice, Cording says. To make it, you ferment the sugar from apples, creating acetic acid—the main ingredient in vinegar.

"Bacteria and yeast are added to the liquid to start the alcoholic fermentation process, which converts the sugars to alcohol,” says Vanessa Rissetto, M.S., R.D., C.D.N. “In a second fermentation step, the alcohol is converted into vinegar bacteria."

Taste-wise, apple cider vinegar has a strong, tart flavor with a hint of apples.

So should you try drinking apple cider vinegar for weight loss?

Drinking ACV alone isn’t going to help you shed excess pounds, but it could support the efforts that we know work for weight loss (like eating a healthy diet and exercising more). And it won’t likely hurt you, according to Goodson and Palinski-Wade—as long as you don’t overdo it.

Like all vinegars, ACV’s high acidity can irritate your throat and strip tooth enamel, Johnston says. Plus, "the acidity could bother you if you experience reflux," adds Rissetto. Stick with a tablespoon no more than twice daily, and always dilute it in eight ounces of water, recommends Palinski-Wade. “ACV should never be consumed straight,” she warns.

“Definitely go slow with this one,” Cording says. “I don’t recommend doing a shot or anything—that will really hurt your esophagus.”

Ultimately, Cording says, “whenever someone tells me that they want to be taking apple cider vinegar in liquid form or supplement form for weight loss, I usually try to steer them in another direction.”

How to add apple cider vinegar to your diet for weight loss

Wondering about the best time to take apple cider vinegar? You can drink a tablespoon of ACV diluted in eight ounces of water up to twice a day—ideally, before or with a meal. That’ll increase the chances that the ACV will boost your satiety and help keep your blood sugar steady, Palinski-Wade says.

If you can’t stomach the idea of drinking vinegar, think about working it into your meals instead. Try drizzling ACV and olive oil over a salad or steamed veggies, Palinski-Wade. Or add a tablespoon of ACV to a smoothie.

If you use ACV to replace more calorie-dense salad dressings and marinades, and you had enough of them in the past, it could help you lose weight by cutting calories, Cording points out.

To maximize the health benefits, choose an ACV that’s labeled raw and unfiltered. “Unfiltered versions contain proteins, enzymes, and healthy bacteria from the vinegar starter or mother,” Palinski-Wade says. Try Bragg Organic Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar or Spectrum Organic Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar.

Apple and a number of other companies have filed a brief with the United States Supreme Court in support of affirmative action programs being challenged at some universities. Apple and the other companies say “diverse groups make better decisions.”

As explained by Bloomberg, the Supreme Court is set to rule on a pair of affirmative action cases. These will mark the first affirmative action cases since conservatives gained a 6-3 majority on the Supreme Court.

In the latest casesStudents for Fair Admissions v. Harvard and Students for Fair Admissions v. University of North Carolina, the plaintiffs say affirmative action not only hurts white applicants, but amounts to an “anti-Asian penalty,” too. 

Alongside Apple, other companies on the brief include Meta, Google, Lyft, Uber, Pinterest, Verizon, and more. In total, there are nearly 80 companies on the brief.

In the brief, the companies wrote that “diverse groups make better decisions” and lead to “increased creativity, sharing of ideas, and accuracy.” The companies also point out that the “benefits are not intangible” and that they also “translate into businesses’ bottom lines.”

“Only in this way can America produce a pipeline of highly qualified future workers and business leaders prepared to meet the needs of the modern economy and workforce,” the brief said.

“Empirical studies confirm that diverse groups make better decisions thanks to increased creativity, sharing of ideas, and accuracy,” the companies said in support of the universities. These benefits are not simply intangible; they translate into businesses’ bottom lines.”

“While the benefits of a diverse student body are widely observable, they are all the more salient and compelling in STEM, which has historically been marked by greater limitations in diversity than most fields of study,” the brief said.

This isn’t the first time Apple has put its name behind affirmative action. In the past, both Microsoft and Apple have signed briefs in affirmative action cases in states, including Michigan and Texas. Nonetheless, as Bloomberg pointed out, these companies risk backlash for their support of the universities in these cases.

Killexams : Apple chipmaker boss Mark Liu warns a Chinese invasion of Taiwan would be a disaster with only losers: ‘Why do we jump again into another trap?’

Tensions between the U.S. and China are at their highest in decades amid a possible unofficial meeting on Tuesday between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Taiwan’s pro-independence president, Tsai Ing-wen.

The highest-ranking visit by a sitting U.S. official since Newt Gingrich in 1997 is considered by Beijing’s party cadres as a hostile intervention by a foreign state in internal Chinese affairs, one which emboldens separatist forces on an island deemed by most of the world—the U.S. included—as officially part of China.

Speaking to CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on Monday, the chairman of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC), which supplies Apple its vaunted M1 microprocessor, warned a disaster looms if Beijing felt compelled to take the island by force.

“The war brings no winners; everybody’s a loser,” said Mark Liu, citing the Ukraine war that has created enormous damage for both Kyiv and Moscow, as well as plunged the West into a likely recession as commodity prices soar.

Foundry to the world

Chipmaker TSMC is widely viewed as the crown jewel of Taiwan’s booming economy. It is Asia’s most valuable tech stock ahead of China’s Tencent, and at over $440 billion, it ranks as the world’s 11th largest company by market cap.

Established in 1987 as part of a government program with the help of Dutch tech giant Philips, it is the largest manufacturer of semiconductors with an annual global capacity equating to more than 13 million silicon wafers last year, the bulk of which, however, is in Taiwan proper.

More important, 92% of the world’s leading-edge semiconductors—circuits just 10 nanometers in size or smaller—are produced in Taiwan, according to a joint study by the trade industry body SIA and Boston Consulting Group from last April.

The only reason TSMC is not a household name is that it serves as a foundry focused on the manufacture of silicon wafers, which can hold billions of miniaturized transistors.

It specializes in supplying companies that outsource their production, so-called fab-less semiconductor companies: TSMC chips are built into consumer branded products like an Nvidia graphics processor or a Qualcomm logic chip in a smartphone.

In the event of an invasion, the North American electronics industry would be hard hit as the region represents roughly 65% of the Taiwanese group’s revenue. But China accounts for another 10%, and as such threatens to hobble its own economy as well should it make that fateful decision to deploy troops to seize the island.

“Our interruption will create great economic turmoil on either side,” said Liu, who succeeded TSMC’s legendary founder Morris Chang four years ago. “Suddenly their most advanced component supply disappeared.”

Chips and historic inflation

Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan comes at a highly sensitive moment for the global economy.

The supply-chain crunch that began at the start of last year originated from a worldwide shortage of semiconductor chips, which drove inflation across the board as there were not enough to meet demand for everything from Sony PlayStation 5 gaming consoles to Chevrolet passenger cars.

Now, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is compounding the misery by fueling a spike in energy and food prices.

Central banks like the Federal Reserve have had to respond by yanking up interest rates, sparking a technical recession in the U.S. ahead of November midterm elections that could sweep the Democrats from power in Congress and strip Pelosi of her speakership.

“Nobody in the business world wants to see a war happen,” said TSMC’s Liu. “Why do we jump again into another trap?”

China’s authoritarian leader, Xi Jinping, meanwhile, is battling for support for an unprecedented third term as president. He has, however, already been weakened by the economic damage wrought by his zero-COVID policy, which forced megacities like Shanghai into total lockdown.

Appearing weak on something so crucial as defending the party’s One China doctrine, which sees Taiwan as a de facto autonomous part of its sovereign territory, could risk his reelection.

Moreover, analysts worry China believes time is running out for a peaceful negotiated solution to unification. Taiwan is drifting farther away ideologically thanks to the accurate rise of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), which is steadily galvanizing its own national identity and mainly speaks a form of Chinese called Taiyu.

By comparison, Beijing prefers the opposition Kuomintang nationalists—ethnic waishengren “mainlanders” who fled from Mao Zedong’s Communists in the 1940s and ’50s, but still feel a common ethnic identity and prefer proper Mandarin.

Into this mess comes Pelosi, a high-profile critic of the Chinese regime who visited Tiananmen Square in 1991 to show her support for the democracy movement crushed in the massacre two years earlier.

Wang Dan, an exiled student protest leader, told Taiwan Plus in an interview on Monday that the speaker has been one of the strongest supporters of human rights and democracy in China: “Pelosi’s visit would mean a fundamental shake-up of U.S.-China relations.”

Scorched earth

In the U.S. Army War College quarterly Parameters, Jared McKinney and Peter Harris argued Washington’s long-running policy toward Taiwan called “strategic ambiguity” may no longer be enough to prevent conflict and have argued for a scorched-earth “deterrence-by-punishment” approach that would target TSMC.

“This could be done most effectively by threatening to destroy facilities belonging to the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company,” the two wrote in November. “China’s high-tech industries would be immobilized at precisely the same time the nation was embroiled in a massive war effort. Even when the formal war ended, the economic costs would persist for years.”

TSMC’s chairman indirectly agreed, arguing a Chinese invasion will render TSMC factories non-operable. Its sophisticated manufacturing facilities are sensitive to every disruption, as everything from key raw materials such as chemicals to spare parts and diagnostic software depends on fragile cross-border supply chains.

“Nobody can control TSMC by force,” he said in the interview with CNN.

In the interview, the chipmaker’s chairman said Taiwan had come out of a 40-year period of martial law known as the “White Terror,” which ended in 1987, the same year his company was founded.

“People in Taiwan have earned their democratic system,” Liu said. “They want to choose their way of life.”

Killexams : Dissemination and implementation of Google Apple exposure notification system to mitigate COVID-19 risk

JMIR Publications recently published "Dissemination and Implementation of a Google Apple Exposure Notification System for COVID-19 Risk Mitigation at a National Public University: Protocol for a Pilot Evaluation Study in a Real-World Setting" in JMIR Research Protocols which reported that this paper describes the protocol for South Carolina Safer Together, developed by Clemson University to design, deploy, and evaluate multilevel communication and dissemination and implementation (D&I) strategies in line with recommendations from governmental and educational agencies to mitigate the risk of exposure to COVID-19.

Safer Together was enhanced by the addition of the Google/Apple Exposure Notification app, an alternative strategy to support a recommendation of COVID-19 testing outcomes:

  1. Contact tracing
  2. Isolation, and
  3. Quarantine.

This study aimed to describe the content and intended audiences of D&I strategies used to deploy recommended COVID-19 mitigation strategies on a major college campus; determine the reach, acceptability, adoption, and use of D&I strategies among the target audiences (university students, faculty, and staff); and characterize barriers and facilitators to the implementation and use of recommended mitigation strategies.

The study team incorporated elements of the Health Belief Model, the Technology Acceptance Model, communication and social marketing models, and the Reach, Effectiveness, Adoption, Implementation, and Maintenance framework to identify and develop appropriate constructs and specific outcomes for inclusion in our approach to evaluate the communication, dissemination, and implementation processes related to the deployment of Safer Together at Clemson.

On a local level, the broad adoption and use of Safer Together may help reduce COVID-19 transmission and keep the university "open." On a larger scale, lessons learned on how to influence student and employee behavior with respect to the use of a public health outbreak prevention tool including Safer Together may be applicable in future pandemic and outbreak situations.

This study proposes a structured theory-driven approach to evaluate dissemination and implementation strategies associated with the deployment of Safer Together in a university setting from the viewpoint of students, employees, and university leadership.

As SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, spread rapidly across the United States in the spring of 2020, institutions of higher education (IHEs) faced numerous challenges associated with minimizing the risk of exposure to COVID-19 among their students, faculty, staff, and surrounding communities."

Dr. Kathleen B Cartmell, Clemson University

To address the recommended strategy of implementing actions to support testing outcomes such as contact tracing, isolation, and quarantine, Clemson also took advantage of a novel partnership among the state public health authority for South Carolina, the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control, Google, and Apple.

Compared to conventional contact tracing based on "case" recollection, cellphone-based exposure notifications have the potential to inform individuals of exposures more quickly, to identify a more complete set of true contacts, and to better assess extent of exposure.

The first round of student messaging regarding recommended strategies and the use of Safer Together was initiated through Clemson Student Housing on October 28, 2020, to students in the two dormitories.

Messaging for students was sent via email to explain Safer Together and its capacity to let students know if they had been exposed to someone with confirmed COVID-19, encourage them to obtain the app, link the app to the Healthy Clemson United as Tigers app, and understand what to do should they be notified of potential exposure.

Given the small size of this pilot with students in only 2 dormitories and that on-campus isolation was not a burden to the university employees, Clemson's administration disseminated messaging about Safer Together to all Clemson employees on November 20, 2020, via an email asking them to obtain and activate Safer Together and advising them of the effort to evaluate Safer Together deployment strategies.

Dr. Cartmell and the research team concluded in their JMIR Publications Research Output, "This study proposes a structured approach based on the RE-AIM framework, to evaluate dissemination and implementation strategies associated with deployment of the Safer Together in a university setting from the viewpoint of students, employees and university leadership. The results of this study will inform future implementation of apps such as Safer Together at major state universities."
