INVESTIGATION LAUNCHED AFTER 28 DOGS FOUND IN HORRIFIC CONDITIONS

first_imgA total of 28 dogs have been seized from a house in Lifford in what have been described as “appalling conditions.”The dogs were found in a horrific state.The dogs, both pups and adults, were found after a man contacted Donegal Pet Rescue to hand over some puppies.Ryan McCauley from Donegal Pet Rescue met the man who handed over a total of eleven dogs. However he became suspicious when the man refused to allow Ryan to see the conditions in which the dogs had been kept.Ryan then contacted the IPSCA offices who are carrying out a full investigation into the owner.Upon inspection of the premises a further 17 dogs, both pups and adults, were removed from the premises.The dogs are terrified of human contact.Inspector Kevin McGinley of the ISPCA told Donegal Daily the man did the right thing in making contact over the dogs. “The dogs were in a state of neglect but this man did the right thing.“This was not a puppy farm situation and these dogs were not being bred for commercial gain. They simply became too much for him.“We are pleased this man came forward because help is there for people in these situations,” he said.Ryan McCauley of DPR said he has never seen dogs in such poor condition.“I have to say we were shocked. I have seen dogs in poor condition but certainly not pups – they were in a very bad way,” he said. Some of the dogs were covered in excrement and some of the older dogs had to be taken to dog grooming services because their coats had grown too long.The dogs were also extremely frightened as they had not appeared to have had much human contact.Ryan said that while he was happy that the man came forward with the dogs, he is still outraged at the situation.“I would guess that these puppies may have been for the Christmas market and did not sell. “But the conditions they were kept in and their condition was just horrendous,” he said.A full investigation is expected to be carried out into the incident.INVESTIGATION LAUNCHED AFTER 28 DOGS FOUND IN HORRIFIC CONDITIONS was last modified: January 25th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:28 dogsISPCA< Donegal Pet RescueLiffordRyan McCauleylast_img read more

How The Flood Of Digital Photos Adds Significance To The Ones We Print

first_imgTags:#Facebook#Instagram#mobile photography#Pause#photography Related Posts Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification john paul titlow The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videoscenter_img In the age of digital cameras on a billion smartphones, the world is collectively creating a staggering number of photographs. You probably have a few hundred shots in your pocket right now, and that doesn’t count the thousands you’ve backed up somewhere else, nor the ones available from the cloud. On Facebook alone, people upload 300 million photos every day. Just as important, we have ubiquitous new ways to view and share all those photos, from mobile phones to tablets to computers of all sorts. With how radically technology has upended the way we take and share photographs, you’d think that printing images would be dead by now.Far from it. As it turns out, the act of preserving our favorite images in the analog world is becoming newly meaningful.The Internet and computers of all shapes and sizes have made producing and consuming content easier than ever. We’re awash in more information, news, opinions, artwork, photographs, videos and songs than our brains know what to do with. It’s overwhelming. Ironically, choosing to pull the best or most meaningful bits out of this endless digital river as it rages by and solidifying them in a physical format, means more now that it did when all content was analog.Today, analog isn’t just hip. It’s relaxing. Putting on a vinyl record is an altogether different experience from shuffling a Spotify playlist, just as cozying up with a paperback book can help us feel more focused than reading on an iPad. Likewise, tapping the “Like” button on a Facebook photo means one thing. Hanging it on your wall or refrigerator is quite another. Even better, turn your favorite photos into a book. Turn Your Instagrams Into… Pretty Much Anything Look at Instagram. As the social photo app has exploded into the mainstream – hitting 100 million users more quickly than either Facebook or Twitter did – there’s been a corresponding rise in third-party services designed to let people turn Instagram photos into physical artifacts. Sure, you could easily upload photos from Instagram or any other mobile source to one of the many standard photo-printing sites, but this new breed of Instagram-specific services streamlines the process by letting you authenticate with your Instagram account and pull photos directly from your own stream. With many of them, you can just select images and place an order from your phone. It’s ideal for making the sort of glossy photographic prints we’ve always cherished, but people are turning to these services for much more than that. Printstagram sells Instagram prints, posters, photo books and calendars. Art Flakes has stickers. Want magnets? Try StickyGram. If you used Instagram to snap photos on vacation, Postagram will turn them into postcards. CanvasPop will print your photos on high-quality canvas. And the list goes on. Meanwhile, printing photos from Facebook and Instagram is now a standard feature on kiosks at places like Walgreens and Target. Long gone are the days where we dropped off a roll of 24 mystery pictures, waited an hour (or a week) and then shuffled through a stack of mediocre shots to see if there were any gems mixed in. Today, printing is a much more deliberate act, reserved for only the images we appreciate the most. The rest of them will sit on hard drives and Facebook Timelines to be scrolled through at our leisure. Many of them, of course, will never get looked at by anyone. The ones you take the time and trouble to print, though, those are the ones you’re gonna make sure everyone sees.

How LogiNext uses logistical data to build a better connected city

first_imgThe most important aspects of the logistics industry are safety and efficiency. At the end of May, LogiNext, a Mumbai-based SaaS company, unveiled its most advanced location-tracking SDK to help more logistics companies and e-commerce platforms gain necessary insights on traffic data so that they can provide a better customer experience. LogiNext users just need to install the location tracking SDK into their smartphones to discover their real-time location, movement, surrounding traffic conditions, and estimated time of arrival. Don’t miss your chance to attend our IoT Revolution SymposiumLogistics companies, especially small, private ones, can offer more accurate and efficient services with LogiNext’s tracing software — feedback traffic data from the tracking software plays a key role in the companies’ performance development and market expansion. Due to limited technologies and prime costs, small logistics companies usually lack systematic management modes for data operation. See also: 3 counterintuitive trends to consider with smart citiesJoining a large “mother” company seems like an ideal solution, but under such a corporation, the smaller sub-company is limited by the technology authorized by its mother company. A small Chinese logistics sub-company recently told us that because of its role as a sub-company, it can’t be as efficient as a large company at service quality and delivery speed. The only advantage it has over its larger competitors is its lower price, but this lower price does not allow them to ensure the quality of the service. With the help of LogiNext, these smaller logistics companies could make data collection and location tracking possible in the near future, saving delivery time. Constant feedback information makes regional data collection and analysis more convenient, which allows these smaller companies to distribute their resources in different regions with the best solution; customers will have a better experience if such technology is applied to these logistics companies. Besides its positive influence on the current logistics industry, LogiNext’s advanced location tracking SDK will also become a crucial part of smart and connected cities in the future. We all know that support from big data is essential when building a connected world. Logistics offers the easiest way to collect updated data on transportation and locations — the most important data sets for smart cities. UK-based Starship Technologies and China-based JD.com both launched self-driving distribution cars, which illustrated the practical uses of self-driving cars. The launches reflected the importance of collecting cities’ big data via logistic info. Dhruvil Sanghvi, the CEO of LogiNext, agreed. “Tracking is knowledge [and] would be the gateway leading to a more connected and interlinked future,” he said. There can be issues, thoughPotential problems abound in collecting data via logistics to build connected cities. One of the most obvious problems is privacy. We are all familiar with breaches of customers’ private data conducted by big firms, but logistics data and information are actually more sensitive and private — they involve people’s shopping histories, addresses, and even payment information. To protect users’ privacy, logistics companies and e-commerce platforms are beginning to use digital bills instead of hard copies and will encrypt and monitor the distribution of data through the entire process. LogiNext’s location tracking software can also help companies supervise the whole delivery process, from big-picture performance to the position of an individual delivery car; this will be very useful in ensuring data safety for logistics companies, as well as for their customers. Because the software itself is just a tool, LogiNext and other logistics companies need to set more regulations on the software so that people and companies will use it properly. LogiNext’s location tracking service will only get better and more competitive within the big data market, and companies will choose to use its services to provide a more seamless and friendly user experience for their customers.If you like the insights you’ve read above, please come join us at our IoT Revolution Symposium on July 11.  Tags:#connected city#Internet of Things#IoT#Smart Cities#smart city Related Posts How IoT Will Play an Important Role in Traffic … For Self-Driving Systems, Infrastructure and In…center_img Surveillance at the Heart of Smart Cities How Connected Communities Can Bolster Your Busi… Fei Zhaolast_img read more
