Une «percée» dans les poumons d'une vape suggère que le coupable dans les produits à base de THC pourrait être l'acétate de vitamine E

Les autorités fédérales ont officiellement annoncé une des causes potentielles de la maladie mystérieuse affectant les utilisateurs de vapeurs: l’acétate de vitamine E, une substance chimique trouvée dans certains produits de vapotage et qui a persisté longtemps dans les poumons. La découverte a été qualifiée de "percée", mais est loin d'être le dernier mot sur la situation.

Malheureusement, la maladie a déjà coûté la vie à au moins 39 personnes et plus de 2 000 cas ont été rapportés collectivement dans tous les États sauf en Alaska. À l’heure actuelle, le seul conseil proposé est d’arrêter complètement le vapotage.

Lors d'une téléconférence à l'intention des médias, les responsables de l'enquête des Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ont expliqué les raisons pour lesquelles il fallait pointer du doigt l'Acétate de vitamine E. La substance a été citée comme un problème possible dès le début, mais seuls des tests récents l’établissent comme un suspect légitime, a expliqué l’équipe.

Des échantillons prélevés dans les poumons de 29 victimes de la maladie ont été envoyés en provenance de 10 États différents et de l'acétate de vitamine E a été trouvé dans chacun d'entre eux. "Ces résultats fournissent des preuves directes de l'acétate de vitamine E comme principal site de lésion des poumons", a déclaré Anne Schuchat, directrice adjointe principale du CDC. .

Même si elle convenait que cette preuve constituait une «avancée décisive», elle a souligné qu’il s’agissait pour l’instant d’une constatation corrélative: des recherches supplémentaires sont nécessaires pour établir le lien de causalité, à savoir le mécanisme du préjudice, bien que d’autres travaux aient été effectués dans ce domaine.

«Des recherches antérieures non CDC suggèrent que, lorsque la vitamine E est inhalée, elle peut interférer avec la fonction pulmonaire normale», a-t-elle déclaré.

"Il est important de noter que ces résultats n'excluent pas d'autres composés ou ingrédients susceptibles de causer ces lésions pulmonaires", a-t-elle poursuivi. "Il peut y avoir plus d'une cause de l'épidémie."

Les statistiques relatives aux sources des substances en question sont tout aussi importantes. Comme mentionné précédemment dans l'enquête, une grande proportion des personnes atteintes de cette affection utilisaient des produits à base de THC, et plus particulièrement des produits acquis par le biais de canaux non réglementés tels que les vendeurs de rue.

L'acétate de vitamine E peut avoir été ajouté dans le but de couper essentiellement le produit, a mentionné Schuchat en réponse à une question posée lors de l'appel.

"Cela peut être fait dans un but illicite, ou dans un but lucratif, de diluer les matériaux, de les rendre agréables et de ne pas avoir à utiliser autant de THC ou d'autres ingrédients actifs", a-t-elle déclaré.

D'autres produits chimiques potentiellement dangereux ont été identifiés dans les produits de vaporisation lorsqu'ils sont chauffés et mis en aérosol, y compris de nombreux produits que même les créateurs n'auraient peut-être pas prédits.

Connaître un coupable potentiel n’arrive pas au cœur du problème, c’est que ce produit chimique (peut-être entre autres) s’est déjà accumulé depuis des mois, voire des années, dans les poumons des utilisateurs fréquents de l’eau de vaporisation. Le traitement est une ligne de recherche parallèle, mais connaître au moins une substance responsable devrait être utile.

Le conseil précédent de la CDC est toujours valable, ont indiqué les responsables: «Ils conseillent d'éviter complètement le vapotage, car il existe actuellement très peu de contrôles sur les ingrédients autorisés dans les produits de vape et sur ce qui doit être déclaré sur l'emballage ou sur le fait de savoir si ces déclarations sont conformes à la réalité. de toute façon précis.

En ce qui concerne précisément ce qui l’a poussé à partir, Cox a expliqué: «Ce n’est pas pour autant que j’ai eu l’impression de vouloir passer 13 ans de plus sur les médias sociaux. Mark et moi avons vu les choses un peu différemment. . . je pense nous sont encore enquête u00a0comme un industrie, Comment faire toi équilibre protéger le intimité de les gens information et continuant u00a0à garder personnes en sécurité », a déclaré Cox. n

En ce qui concerne le passage au chiffrement, il a estimé que le chiffrement était «formidable: il offre une protection énorme», mais il a ajouté que «cela complique certainement certaines choses» sur le rapport entre sécurité et protection de la vie privée. . Il a complété les efforts de Facebook pour trouver des moyens d’attraper les mauvais acteurs, même s’ils étaient protégés par le cryptage. Cela inclut des initiatives d’alphabétisation numérique au Brésil et en Inde en amont des élections et des systèmes de transmission permettant d’envoyer des informations douteuses aux vérificateurs de faits. "Je pense qu'il y a des avantages et des inconvénients avec ces systèmes et je ne suis pas un dur à cuire sur aucun d'entre eux", a déclaré Cox, notant que ce que Facebook construit est en phase avec ce que les gens veulent.

Cox a été interrogé sur le débat majeur sur la question de savoir si Facebook devrait autoriser la publicité politique. «Nous pensons que la publicité politique peut être bonne et utile. Il favorise souvent les entrées et les départs par rapport aux opérateurs historiques. »Néanmoins, après vérification, il a déclaré:« Je suis un grand fan », même si Facebook ne l’applique pas aux annonces politiques. Il a noté que “je pense le compagnie devrait enquêter et est enquêter micro ciblage. . . si il y a des centaines de variantes étant courir de le Créatif alors u00a0ses rusé à obtenir votre les bras environ ce qui est étant dit ". Il a également plaidé pour plus de contexte dans l'interface utilisateur pour distinguer les annonces politiques. u00a0 n

Les prochains projets de Cox n

Depuis son départ de Facebook, Cox a rejoint le conseil consultatif d'un groupe appelé Acronym, qui aide à renforcer la pile de technologies de campagne et de messagerie pour les candidats progressistes. “Cette est un région mon la perception est cette le progressifs avoir été derrière sur le aptitude à développer et utilisation comme une équipe Infrastructure cette aide toi avoir une bien électeur fichier, comment développer messagerie – u00a0juste de base politique dans 2019. " n

Lauren Goode, de Wired, a demandé s’il s’alignait sur les progressistes, adoptait une position politique et s’il pouvait le faire tout en restant sur Facebook. “Absolument non, répondit Cox. “Et Pourquoi est cette je pense quand vous êtes dans une très u00a0Sénior rôle à une Plate-forme, vous avez le devoir d'être beaucoup plus neutre dans votre politique. " n

Il est ensuite sorti avec une déclaration audacieuse rendue possible par son indépendance. “Je pense que Trump ne devrait pas être notre président. L’autre aspect qui me tient à coeur en ce moment est le changement climatique et il ne va pas nous aider à y parvenir. " N

n

Cela a amené Cox à s’expliquer sur le fait qu’il travaillait également à conseiller la start-up de San Francisco, Planet Labs, qui utilise l’imagerie par satellite pour suivre le changement climatique. “le vision était à construire celles-ci petit, sur chaussureboîte-Taille satellites avec solaire panneau panneau ailes et avoir une flotte de leur dans espace, lequel est réel-temps imagerie le Terre. " N

Avec ces données, Cox a expliqué que vous pouvez suivre les incendies de forêt, la déforestation, les centrales au charbon, le méthane, etc. Ensuite, "Toi pouvez début à contribuer à ayant une santé système, tu es fondamentalement imagerie le Terre chaque heure, et ensuite vous êtes créant certains Publique Les données ensemble avec outils cette prise de courant dans décision décideurs, banques, Assurance entreprises, décideurs, investisseurs, journalistes, étudiants… " n

Interrogé sur la responsabilité des grandes technologies dans la lutte contre le changement climatique, Cox a déclaré:je pense à le très moins ses fabrication une engagement à étant carbone-négatif. " n

Acronym et le travail de Planet Labs sont intimement liés, et Cox pense que les données climatiques prouvent la nécessité de trouver un nouveau venu au bureau ovale. Bien que Cox n’en ait pas parlé sur scène, Wired l’a inscrit comme faisant partie du groupe Shasta, qui est le véhicule même de Cox pour contribuer à ces projets. Pourtant, il n’est pas prêt à créer sa propre entreprise politique et climatique. “Je suis encore alors jeune u00a0à cette champ cette je ne pas avoir suffisant confiance dans mon posséder mental modèle de le monde. " n

Cox a conclu qu’en mobilisant les employés des grandes entreprises et en faisant en sorte que les chefs d’équipe accordent plus d’attention au changement climatique, “je faire pense technologie pouvez plomb. " u00a0 n", "protected": false}, "extrait": {"rendu": "

Les discours de motivation de Chris Cox ont été au cœur de la nouvelle orientation des employés de Facebook. Mais après 14 ans sur le réseau social, le responsable produits en mars est parti au milieu d’un changement de direction et du nouveau plan de Facebook pour donner la priorité à la confidentialité en cryptant ses applications de messagerie.

THC pourrait être l'acétate de vitamine E "}," content ": {" rendu ":"

Les autorités fédérales ont officiellement annoncé une des causes potentielles de la maladie mystérieuse affectant les utilisateurs de vapeurs: l’acétate de vitamine E, une substance chimique trouvée dans certains produits de vapotage et qui a persisté longtemps dans les poumons. La découverte a été qualifiée de "percée", mais est loin d'être le dernier mot sur la situation. N

Malheureusement, la maladie a déjà coûté la vie à au moins 39 personnes et plus de 2 000 cas ont été rapportés collectivement dans tous les États sauf en Alaska. Pour l’instant, le seul conseil proposé est d’arrêter complètement le vapotage. N

Lors d'une téléconférence à l'intention des médias, les responsables de l'enquête des Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ont expliqué les raisons pour lesquelles il fallait pointer du doigt l'Acétate de vitamine E. La substance a été citée comme un problème possible au début, mais seuls des tests récents l’établissent comme un suspect légitime, a expliqué l’équipe. N

Des échantillons prélevés dans les poumons de 29 victimes de la maladie ont été envoyés en provenance de 10 États différents et de l'acétate de vitamine E a été trouvé dans chacun d'entre eux. "Ces résultats fournissent des preuves directes de l'acétate de vitamine E comme principal site de lésion des poumons", a déclaré Anne Schuchat, directrice adjointe principale du CDC. . n

Même si elle convenait que ces éléments de preuve constituaient une «avancée décisive», elle a souligné qu’il ne s’agissait pour l’instant que d’une constatation corrélative: il est nécessaire de poursuivre les recherches pour établir le lien de causalité, à savoir le mécanisme du préjudice, bien que d’autres travaux aient été effectués dans ce domaine. n

"Des recherches antérieures non-CDC suggèrent que, lorsque la vitamine E est inhalée, elle peut interférer avec la fonction pulmonaire normale", a-t-elle déclaré.

"Il est important de noter que ces résultats n'excluent pas d'autres composés ou ingrédients susceptibles de causer ces lésions pulmonaires", a-t-elle poursuivi. "Il peut y avoir plus d'une cause de l'épidémie." N n

Alors que le nombre de morts dans les poumons augmente, les enquêteurs du CDC mettent en garde contre les sources "informelles" de THC

n

Les statistiques relatives aux sources des substances en question sont tout aussi importantes. Comme mentionné précédemment dans l'enquête, une grande proportion des personnes souffrant de cette maladie utilisaient des produits à base de THC, et plus particulièrement des produits acquis via des canaux non réglementés tels que les marchands ambulants. N

L’acétate de vitamine E peut avoir été ajouté dans le but de couper essentiellement le produit, a mentionné Schuchat en réponse à une question posée sur l’appel. N

"Cela peut être fait dans un but illicite, ou dans un but lucratif, de diluer les matériaux, de les rendre plus beaux et de ne pas avoir à utiliser autant de THC ou d’autres ingrédients actifs", at-elle déclaré. N

D’autres produits chimiques potentiellement dangereux ont été identifiés dans les produits de vaporisation lorsqu’ils sont chauffés et aérosolisés, y compris de nombreux produits que même les créateurs n’auraient peut-être pas prédits. N

Connaître un coupable potentiel n’arrive pas au cœur du problème, c’est que ce produit chimique (peut-être entre autres) s’est déjà accumulé depuis des mois, voire des années, dans les poumons des utilisateurs fréquents de l’eau de vaporisation. Le traitement est une ligne de recherche parallèle, mais connaître au moins une substance responsable devrait être utile. N

Le conseil précédent de la CDC est toujours valable, ont indiqué les responsables: «Ils conseillent d'éviter complètement le vapotage, car il existe actuellement très peu de contrôles sur les ingrédients autorisés dans les produits à vaporiser et sur ce qui doit être déclaré sur l'emballage ou sur le fait de savoir si ces déclarations sont conformes à la réalité. toute façon précise. n "," protected ": false}," extrait ": {" rendue ":"

how to win customers and influence consumers at Disrupt Berlin"},"content":{"rendered":"

Every startup is a story and every startup’s success depends — on some level — on how well they can either tell that story or get that story told.n

The best stories are the ones that create an instant brand. One that sparks a relationship or a moment of inspiration with customers and consumers alike. Those are the stories that transform industries and re-contextualize how businesses think of themselves and their competition.n

On the Extra Crunch Stage at Disrupt Berlin three of the finest practitioners of the dark arts of branding, public relations, marketing and communications will share their tips and tricks on how to get coverage for a company and how to use that coverage to get at the strategic objectives that companies need to fulfill as they grow.n

These alchemists of allusive include Collette Ballou, the founder of the eponymous Ballou PR; Katy Turner, the managing director of Multiple; and longtime public relations pro, Joanna Kirk.n

Ballou began her career in European public relations in the aftermath of the dot-com collapse in the U.S. in 2001. Both an investor and an entrepreneur, Ballou has worked with startups and investment firms including 83 North, Accel Partners, Box, Criteo, Eventbrite, Facebook, GoEuro (now Omio), Lakestar, Pinterest, Stack Overflow, Stripe, TransferWise, Twilio, Waze, WhatsApp and Zendesk. She also is an investor in venture funds, including Cavalry Ventures and Connect Ventures.n

Before founding Multiple, Turner worked in several different roles across the tech industry in the U.K. and Europe. She began her career at Orange (in a time when it was actually cool to work for a mobile operator, she says). That role led to positions at Eden Ventures, Videoplaza and as the chief marketing officer at Tech City UK. In addition to her work at Multiple, Turner also serves as a mentor for Seedcamp and Techstars and sits on the investment committee for the University of Bristol’s Enterprise Fund.nnnn

Kirk has led multiple public relations initiatives at nonprofits like Techfugees, is a co-founder of the startup events organization Startup Sesame and previously handled marketing and communications for Le Web, MIP and Midem.n

As the number of global startup companies competing for customers and public attention continues to rise, having a compelling story and an electrifying brand is becoming ever more important to be a signal among all the noise. Hear how to raise a startup’s voice above the fray with these amazing speakers at Disrupt Berlin.n

To learn more about the next wave of consumer startup investment outside Silicon Valley, Iu2019m speaking to leading B2C-focused investors in various hubs about the trends they’re excited about right now.u00a0n

Recently, I shared the responses from several London-based investors; today, we spoke to eight of New Yorku2019s top consumer VCs:nnRebecca Kaden, Partner at Union Square VenturesnDavid Tisch, Founding Partner at BoxGroupnAnu Duggal, Founding Partner at Female Founders FundnCraig Shapiro, Partner at Collaborative FundnJeremy Levine, Partner at BessemernBeth Ferreira, Partner at Firstmark CapitalnGraham Brown, Partner at Lerer Hippeau VenturesnEric Reiner, Partner at Sinai VenturesnChris Paik, Partner at Pace Capitalnn

Consumer health and banking startups were recurring areas of interest, and there’s a sense that apps and product brands which provide a deeper sense of community are an untapped opportunity.n

Rebecca Kaden, Partner at Union Square Venturesn

At USV, we are focused on opportunities that broaden access by leveraging technology to increase value and decrease cost in big buckets of consumer spend. In doing so, we are looking for ways to make products and services previously available to a select segment available to many more. In particular, we have been investing in areas of consumer health where the delivery mechanism not only makes the care more convenient but also more affordable and higher quality; products and platforms in financial services that change the traditional underlying model to drive financial health for a mass customer; and opportunities that create new access to education both for kids and lifelong learners.u00a0n

Within each of these segments, I’ve been very interested in how new communities are forming inside products–users that come for a specific offering are forming allegiance and increasing engagement by interacting with other users. I think that is a trend we will only see accelerate.n

David Tisch, Founding Partner at BoxGroupn

People are bored on their phones, not of their phones. I am most excited to meet founders working on consumer apps that bring happiness and fun to a mass consumer audience, as I continue to believe we are in the early days of mobile and the app store is not dead.n

These apps may look like a game, they may be a game, or they may be a new feed, but TikTok, Twitch, HQ, Yolo and other Snap app kit apps, Tinder and others have shown consumers want new apps, the barrier for adoption and retention isu00a0 just very high. All apps and games have a half-life, creating something with a very long one is really hard, but the demand is sitting on the phone scrolling thorough feeds, waiting for some new fun. We are excited about apps that allow people to interact with others in different ways, in new worlds, using new hardware, or new interfaces.nn

London’s top consumer VCs share which trends they’re trackingn

Anu Duggal, Founding Partner at Female Founders Fundn

With the rise of the sober curious movement, we invested in Kin Euphorics, offering consumers a sexy option to an alcoholic drink, creating a social experience around a non-alcoholic beverage that doesnu2019t exist in the market today. With beer sales decreasing five years in a row, brands like Heineken are offering alcohol-free alternatives catering to this growing audience.n

With the decline of religion, we have seen the rise of what we call the u201crise of the alternate community.u201d Consumers are looking for ways to connect online and offline based on specific interests.

Last month, Andreessen Horowitz (a16z) general partner Chris Dixon announced at TechCrunch Disrupt that the VC firm would run a free crypto startup school. And the company is officially launching its school today. Applications are now open and you have four weeks to apply.n

With this initiative, a16z wants to democratize cryptocurrencies. Dixon and the a16z team has been involved in the cryptocurrency/blockchain space for seven years, and the firm now wants to share some of its learnings with entrepreneurs.n

This way, it could give a boost to the crypto community, which could create investment opportunities for a16z down the road u2014 a16z says clearly that participating in the crypto startup school doesn’t mean you’ll receive an investment from a16z. It also positions a16z as a thoughtful investor when it comes to crypto startup investments u2014 not just for participants of the crypto startup school but for the crypto community at large.n

The a16z Crypto Startup School will be a seven-week program that starts February 21, 2020. The program is free and a16z doesnu2019t take any equity.n

Lectures will take place in Menlo Park, so you have to be based in Silicon Valley or willing to spend a couple of months there. And because a16z knows that it can be challenging to move to another country just to attend this program, the firm will also be recording all lectures. Anyone will be able to watch videos and download curriculum materials later.n

Hereu2019s a sneak peek of the course outline:nnnWhat are Crypto Networks, and Why Do They Matter?nBlockchain Computing Primitives: Cryptography and ConsensusnOverview of Application Development ToolsnApplications: Today and 2025nCrypto Business ModelsnCryptoeconomicsnUX, Product Development and SecuritynGo-to-Market Strategy and Developer RelationsnCommunity Participation and GovernancenRegulatory Landscape and ConsiderationsnGuide to Fundraisingnnn

As you can, itu2019s a mix of lectures purely focused on cryptocurrencies as well as broader startup 101 lessons (fundraising, go-to-market strategy, etc.).n

The program is looking for 20 to 25 teams, which should represent approximately 40 participants. You should have prior experience when it comes to building software products, but you donu2019t need to be a crytpo expert. Participants can expect 12 to 15 hours of lectures, workshops, mentorship and networking opportunities per week.n

At the end of the course, participants will showcase a project idea or a prototype during a demo day.n

Recently, I shared the responses from several London-based investors; today, we spoke to eight of New Yorku2019s top consumer VCs:nnRebecca Kaden, Partner at Union Square VenturesnDavid Tisch, Founding Partner at BoxGroupnAnu Duggal, Founding Partner at Female Founders FundnCraig Shapiro, Partner at Collaborative FundnJeremy Levine, Partner at BessemernBeth Ferreira, Partner at Firstmark CapitalnGraham Brown, Partner at Lerer Hippeau VenturesnEric Reiner, Partner at Sinai VenturesnChris Paik, Partner at Pace Capitalnn

Consumer health and banking startups were recurring areas of interest, and there’s a sense that apps and product brands which provide a deeper sense of community are an untapped opportunity.n

Rebecca Kaden, Partner at Union Square Venturesn

At USV, we are focused on opportunities that broaden access by leveraging technology to increase value and decrease cost in big buckets of consumer spend. In doing so, we are looking for ways to make products and services previously available to a select segment available to many more. In particular, we have been investing in areas of consumer health where the delivery mechanism not only makes the care more convenient but also more affordable and higher quality; products and platforms in financial services that change the traditional underlying model to drive financial health for a mass customer; and opportunities that create new access to education both for kids and lifelong learners.u00a0n

Within each of these segments, I’ve been very interested in how new communities are forming inside products–users that come for a specific offering are forming allegiance and increasing engagement by interacting with other users. I think that is a trend we will only see accelerate.n

David Tisch, Founding Partner at BoxGroupn

People are bored on their phones, not of their phones. I am most excited to meet founders working on consumer apps that bring happiness and fun to a mass consumer audience, as I continue to believe we are in the early days of mobile and the app store is not dead.n

These apps may look like a game, they may be a game, or they may be a new feed, but TikTok, Twitch, HQ, Yolo and other Snap app kit apps, Tinder and others have shown consumers want new apps, the barrier for adoption and retention isu00a0 just very high. All apps and games have a half-life, creating something with a very long one is really hard, but the demand is sitting on the phone scrolling thorough feeds, waiting for some new fun. We are excited about apps that allow people to interact with others in different ways, in new worlds, using new hardware, or new interfaces.nn

London’s top consumer VCs share which trends they’re trackingn

Anu Duggal, Founding Partner at Female Founders Fundn

With the rise of the sober curious movement, we invested in Kin Euphorics, offering consumers a sexy option to an alcoholic drink, creating a social experience around a non-alcoholic beverage that doesnu2019t exist in the market today. With beer sales decreasing five years in a row, brands like Heineken are offering alcohol-free alternatives catering to this growing audience.n

With the decline of religion, we have seen the rise of what we call the u201crise of the alternate community.u201d Consumers are looking for ways to connect online and offline based on specific interests. Examples of this in our portfolio include The Wonder, a membership model for familyhood, Peanut, a social network for modern motherhood, and Co-Star, an astrology app.","protected":false},"excerpt":{"rendered":"

Indonesian capital will impact nation’s startup ecosystem"},"content":{"rendered":"nntnttnttttttt

Recently reelected, Indonesian President Joko Widodou00a0announced a desire to move the nation’s capital from Jakarta to the East Kalimantan region, citing environmental concerns, the most exigent of these being the fact that Jakarta is literally sinking due to the uncontrolled extraction of groundwater. Widodo said he wished to separate Indonesiau2019s government from its business and economic hub in Jakarta. n

However, what would a move from Jakarta do to Indonesiau2019s burgeoning startup economy?n

Shifting administrative governmental hubsn

According to Widodo, studies have determined that the best site for the proposed new capital is between North Penajam Paser and Kutai Kertanegara, both located in East Kalimantan. The basis of this selection is due to studies highlighting the regionu2019s relative protection from natural disasters, especially when compared to other regions. This would definitely be a benefit for the governmental heart of Indonesia, ensuring continuous administrative functions in a disaster-prone region. Other governments have separated administrative centers from their economic hubs with varying degrees of success, with some examples being Brazilu2019s creation of Brasu00edlia, as well as Koreau2019s projected move from Seoul to Sejong.n

What is most interesting to note from prior examples is that these newer branched-out cities are non-surprisingly, heavily government-centric. In Brasu00edlia, roles tied to the government make up nearly 40% of all jobs, while in Sejong, a lack of facilities like public transit and commercial mall space cause many to commute into Sejong for government work, instead of permanently settling in the area. Given the semi-undeveloped nature of East Kalimantan, these anecdotes are quite troubling if the government is actually moving to North Penajam Paser or Kutai Kertanegara.n

These facts raise the question of economic impacts of such governmental moves. In fact, one may even opine that while these moves do allow for governmental growth, ultimately, they may hurt the country economically due to a divestment between both government and economic hubs. In this specific instance, it is most important to analyze the impact of such a move on Indonesiau2019s startup economy, as the nation is one the worldu2019s leaders in startup growth.n

Indonesiau2019s startup economyn

Indonesia has emerged as a startup hub within Southeast Asia in recent years, with its population of over 260 million marking it as the worldu2019s fourth-most populous country. Additionally, Indonesiau2019s mobile-first population has enabled the full embrace of the internet era, with 95% of all internet users in Indonesia connected to the web via a mobile device.n

Similarly, startup growth has boomed in the island archipelago, with several Indonesian-based unicorns disrupting local, regional, and global economies. Softbank-backed ecommerce giant Tokopedia is currently in talksu00a0for a pre-IPO funding round, while emerging super-app Gojek controls significant portions of the ride-sharing industry in Asia, simultaneously expanding intou00a0separate industriesu00a0to include digital payments, food delivery, and evenu00a0video-streaming. Additionally, online travel portal Traveloka (in which Expedia has a minority stake) has recentlyu00a0entered the financial services space, furthering its impact within Asia. These specific examples of high-growth startups demonstrate a population hungry for innovation, further driving the developing startup economy.","protected":false},"excerpt":{"rendered":"

Academy is scaling up a coding program for ‘the heartland’"},"content":{"rendered":"

The crowded landscape of programs teaching non-technical people to become software developers has been a proving ground for a new model of education financing: income share agreements (ISAs). With an ISA, students avoid paying tuition upfront or taking out private loans, instead paying a percentage of their income for a time after graduation after they’re earning a minimum income.n

The model aligns education providers with students’ career outcomes, and one startup is staking a claim to be the leader in the space; Kenzie Academy, a year-long program with a physical campus in Indianapolis u2014 and a student body that’s 66 percent online u2014 announced a partnership with Community Investment Management (CIM) earlier this week that provides $100 million in debt to cover the operating costs associated with students who defer payment through ISAs.n

Kenzie co-founder and CEO Chok Ooi says that core to Kenzie’s mission is the goal that its graduates “can stay in the heartland and attract more jobs so that someone coming out of the Midwest no longer has to move to Silicon Valley or New York to have a successful career in tech.” This $100 million is one of the largest commitments yet to financing ISAs and Kenzie is using it to recruit a more diverse population of students who may not be able to afford tuition or qualify for student loans otherwise.n

I interviewed Ooi to understand how Kenzie differentiates itself from competitors, how it has iterated its model to improve retention and job placement and how he expects the ISA market to evolve over the next couple years. Here’s the transcript of our conversation, edited for length and clarity:n

Eric Peckham: The landscape of software developer training programs is crowded. Where did you see an opportunity to do something different, and how do you position Kenzie relative to others in the market?n

Chok Ooi: My co-founder came from Galvanize, so we observed firsthand the proliferation of tech and coding boot camps. These are typically short-term, three-to-five month programs and they tend to do well serving people with college degrees. I would say that they are disrupting the masters’ program space. We saw a major gap in programs that serve a much larger demographic of people who are much earlier in their development. People who never went to college, or did a little bit of college and dropped out, or just never had a professional work experience. A three-month training is insufficient to get them to a point where they could land a technical job and be successful.n

We saw an opportunity to bring high-quality tech education to the American heartland that is 12 months in length. For about two-thirds of our students, this is their first post-secondary credential training.n

We are giving them not just the technical skills, but elements from a traditional four-year college as well, like critical thinking, problem-solving and communication skills.n

Compared to those other bootcamps or training programs, is Kenzie targeting different job outcomes for its graduates?n

We did a survey of our students that asked them to name the top five tech companies they desired to work for. None of the Silicon Valley companies made the list other than Salesforce. Indianapolis is the second largest Salesforce office outside of San Francisco. The rest of the companies our students named were companies like DMI and Zylo that people in Silicon Valley don’t hear about but are doing very well in the Midwest. Their friends work there. They’re a fabric of the community. If we really want to create job opportunities for the rest of America, we cannot adopt the Silicon Valley mindset.n

So how do you evaluate technical aptitude and critical thinking in the admissions process? What’s that process look like, and how has it evolved over the last couple of years? What have you learned in order to make that more effective?n

Prior to founding Kenzie, I started a company nine years ago called AglityIO. The model for AgilityIO was similar to companies like Andela. We were trying to solve the talent crunch in the Bay Area by recruiting and training people with the raw talent in Vietnam. Today, that company works with Google, Uber, NerdWallet, Meetup.com and 150 other tech companies. So Iu2019ve experience in developing processes to identify raw talent in this context.n

As people are doing the online assessments, we collect data points of how long it takes for them to solve the problem, what their different decision points are and things like that. Then as they get enrolled in Kenzie, we continue to collect attendance data, grades, and then placement data and use that to look at success and failure cases. We constantly refine our assessment.n

Are you seeing any particular pattern or cluster in the applications youu2019re receiving or the candidates youu2019re accepting in terms of prior field of employment or aspect of their background?","protected":false},"excerpt":{"rendered":"

Microsoft Research is a globally distributed playground for people interested in solving fundamental science problems.n

These projects often focus on machine learning and artificial intelligence, and since Microsoft is on a mission to infuse all of its products with more AI smarts, it’s no surprise that it’s also seeking ways to integrate Microsoft Research’s innovations into the rest of the company.n

Across the board, the company is trying to find ways to become more innovative, especially around its work in AI, and it’s putting processes in place to do so. Microsoft is unusually open about this process, too, and actually made it somewhat of a focus this week at Ignite, a yearly conference that typically focuses more on technical IT management topics.n

At Ignite,u00a0Microsoft will for the first time present these projects externally at a dedicated keynote. That feels similar to what Google used to do with its ATAP group at its I/O events and is obviously meant to showcase the cutting-edge innovation that happens inside of Microsoft (outside of making Excel smarter).n

To manage its AI innovation efforts, Microsoft created the Microsoft AI group led by VP Mitra Azizirad, who’s tasked with establishing thought leadership in this space internally and externally, and helping the company itself innovate faster (Microsoft’s AI for Good projects also fall under this group’s purview). I sat down with Azizirad to get a better idea of what her team is doing and how she approaches getting companies to innovate around AI and bring research projects out of the lab.n

“We began to put together a narrative for the company of what it really means to be in an AI-driven world and what we look at from a differentiated perspective,” Azizirad said. “What we’ve done in this area is something that has resonated and landed well. And now we’re including AI, but we’re expanding beyond it to other paradigm shifts like human-machine interaction, future of computing and digital responsibility, as more than just a set of principles and practices but an area of innovation in and of itself.”n

Currently, Microsoft is doing a very good job at talking and thinking about horizon one opportunities, as well as horizon three projects that are still years out, she said. “Horizon two, we need to get better at, and that’s what we’re doing.”n

It’s worth stressing that Microsoft AI, which launched about two years ago, marks the first time there’s a business, marketing and product management team associated with Microsoft Research, so the team does get a lot of insights into upcoming technologies. Just in the last couple of years, Microsoft has published more than 6,000 research papers on AI, some of which clearly have a future in the company’s products.","protected":false},"excerpt":{"rendered":"

Securing a green card can feel overwhelming for people in Silicon Valley who were born in India and China. But with the right help and guidance from a skilled immigration attorney, the process can be simpler, smoother and more successful.n

Limits written into existing immigration laws on both the number of green cards issued each year, as well as the number of green cards available based on country of origin, leave some waiting half a century or more for a green card, with people from India and China facing the longest wait times for employment-based green cards.n

In this fiscal year, which ended on October 31, 226,000 family-sponsored green cards and 141,918 employment-based green cards were available. And the per-country cap, which is the maximum number of green cards available to individuals born in a particular country, was 25,754.u00a0n

Although these U.S. laws pose an extra challenge for people born in countries with the highest demand for green cards, if you were born in India or China, there are some things you can do to mitigate this wait.n

Differentiate yourselfn

The EB-1 green card is considered the u201cfirst preferenceu201d for those who’ll receive offers for employment-based green cards. It offers three unique and accelerated sub-paths:u00a0nnEB-1A green card for individuals of extraordinary abilityu00a0nEB-1B green card for outstanding researchers and professorsnEB-1C green card for multinational managers and executivesnn

The EB-1A green card for extraordinary ability does not require an employer sponsor or even a job offer, which means itu2019s one of the few self-petition green cards. To demonstrate eligibility,u00a0you must be able to show you have extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics and that you and your work have received national or international acclaim.u00a0n

Individuals who apply for the EB-1A do not need to obtain labor certification (as required of employers). That means the process is simpler and can be much faster than typical employment-based green cards.

Les autorités fédérales ont officiellement annoncé une des causes potentielles de la maladie mystérieuse affectant les utilisateurs de vapeurs: l’acétate de vitamine E, une substance chimique trouvée dans certains produits de vapotage et qui a persisté longtemps dans les poumons. The finding has been called a “breakthrough” but is far from the last word on the situation.n

Malheureusement, la maladie a déjà coûté la vie à au moins 39 personnes et plus de 2 000 cas ont été rapportés collectivement dans tous les États sauf en Alaska. At present the only advice offered has been to stop vaping altogether.n

Lors d'une téléconférence à l'intention des médias, les responsables de l'enquête des Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ont expliqué les raisons pour lesquelles il fallait pointer du doigt l'Acétate de vitamine E. The substance was cited as a possible problem early on but only recent testing has established it as a bona fide suspect, the team explained.n

Des échantillons prélevés dans les poumons de 29 victimes de la maladie ont été envoyés en provenance de 10 États différents et de l'acétate de vitamine E a été trouvé dans chacun d'entre eux. "Ces résultats fournissent des preuves directes de l'acétate de vitamine E comme principal site de lésion des poumons", a déclaré Anne Schuchat, directrice adjointe principale du CDC. .n

Although she agreed that this evidence is a “breakthrough,” she noted that it is at present merely a correlative finding u2014 more research is required to establish causation, namely the mechanism of harm, though other work has been done in that area.n

“Previous non-CDC research suggests that when vitamin E acetate is inhaled, it may interfere with normal lung function,” she said.n

"Il est important de noter que ces résultats n'excluent pas d'autres composés ou ingrédients susceptibles de causer ces lésions pulmonaires", a-t-elle poursuivi. “There may be more than one cause of the outbreak.”nn

As vape lung death toll mounts, CDC investigators warn against ‘informal’ THC sourcesn

n

Les statistiques relatives aux sources des substances en question sont tout aussi importantes. As mentioned earlier in the investigation, a huge proportion of those suffering from this condition were using THC products, and specifically ones acquired through unregulated channels like street dealers.n

The vitamin E acetate may have been added for the purpose of essentially cutting the product, Schuchat mentioned in response to a question on the call.n

“That may be done for the illicit purpose, or the profit purpose, of diluting the materials, making it look nice and perhaps not having to use as much THC or other active ingredients,” she said.n

Other potentially dangerous chemicals have been identified in vape products when heated and aerosolized, including many that even the creators might not have predicted.n

Connaître un coupable potentiel n’arrive pas au cœur du problème, c’est que ce produit chimique (peut-être entre autres) s’est déjà accumulé depuis des mois, voire des années, dans les poumons des utilisateurs fréquents de l’eau de vaporisation. Treatment is a parallel line of research, but knowing at least one substance responsible should be helpful.n

The CDC’s previous advice still stands, the officials noted: They advise avoiding vaping altogether, as there are very few controls at present over which ingredients are allowed in vape products, and what must be declared on the packaging, or indeed whether those declarations are in any way accurate.n","protected":false},"excerpt":{"rendered":"
