In the Master of Science in Internet of Things Program, students learn how a network of devices works to perform complex coherent actions. For Fantaysia Polanco BS ’21, MS ’22, the program’s first female graduate, her new College of Engineering and Computer Science degree helps her connect everything in her life and uplift the people around her.

With advanced technical skills and a teacher’s heart, Polanco helps hundreds of children learn engineering and computer science. She also excels in the professional field. Within days of graduating, Polanco is working at General Motors as a software developer, helping the e-commerce industry expand its functionality.

“In many ways, I don’t think I look like a typical engineer. I like fairly long nails, pretty earrings and pink and purple colors,” says Polanco, who comes from Haitian, Dominican and Bahamian lineage. “I think I show people, especially in my community, that there are different types of engineers and that black and brown girls like me can be engineers and scientists too.”

As a young girl, Polanco saw her mother work in healthcare and her grandfather’s carpentry trade and knew she wanted to be a biomedical engineer. She ultimately chose to pursue bachelor’s and master’s studies in IoT after the program’s faculty was featured in one of her undergraduate classes.

“Taking these classes was so much fun,” says Polanco. “You get your hands dirty with different microcontrollers, sensors, networking tools, and IoT platforms.”

In one of its courses, Polanco and its group partners, Luis Leon and Nicolas Contreras, designed a proof of concept for a wearable device intended to help people prone to epileptic seizures. The proposed device was a monitoring system based on a low-power Bluetooth communication scheme that recorded immediate changes in heart rate and skin characteristics to detect if an individual was having a seizure. The device automatically notifies the specified people or family members.

Throughout his courses, Polanco studied the physical and software components of electronics, with an emphasis on how devices communicate with each other.

“People don’t realize how many IoT devices they actually have in their homes,” Polanco says. “We have televisions, remotes, thermostats and even refrigerators sending shopping lists to our phones. There’s so much data transmission that we don’t see.

While studying at CRF, Polanco became a skilled coder and participated in internships and selective programs such as the McNair Scholars program, which is designed to increase graduate degrees for students from underrepresented segments. of society, including first-generation and low-income people. As a McNair Fellow, she developed a pipeline that uses QIIME2 for bioinformatics analysis of the microbiome under the supervision of Professor Kalai Mathee at Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine and Professor Trevor Cickvoski at the Knight School of Computing and Information Sciences. Additionally, she completed an intensive bioinformatics internship where she worked on deploying containers in the cloud using Amazon Web Services and Docker. Polanco also participated in UPE Sparkdev, UPE Shellhacks and HackGT hackathon.

In addition to her academics, Polanco was a resident student housing assistant, an active member of numerous organizations, and a board member of the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW) as well as the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. . (NAACP). All of these projects and organizations taught Polanco the value of collaboration by working in groups and helped her develop leadership, time management and critical thinking skills. These characteristics should help her in her new job at General Motors, where she will work with the eCommerce department.

All emails should be documented in the patient’s clinical record and stored appropriately.

Sally left a voicemail asking for a copy of her prescription for her next trip, in case she lost her glasses. She doesn’t have time to come, can you send her an e-mail? Lawyer RUANNE BRELL explains what to consider before pressing “send”.

Ruanne Brell.

Electronic communication has become even more essential for healthcare during COVID-19 related isolations and lockdowns. However, there is still some confusion among practitioners about how to communicate via email without infringing on patient privacy.

Communication by e-mail requires reasonable measures to protect confidentiality

Medical information is considered sensitive information under the Privacy Act, but that does not mean that email communication is prohibited. In fact, healthcare organizations can communicate with or about patients using unencrypted email, as long as they take “reasonable steps” to protect the information being transmitted and patient privacy.

The Australian Information Commissioner’s Office (OAIC) ​​Guide to Securing Personal Information provides guidance on what steps are considered reasonable.

Practices should develop clear policies and procedures for using email and ensure staff understand them.

Is it appropriate to send an email?

Always ask yourself if email is appropriate for the situation and the information you are communicating.

For example, if you need to deliver bad news to a patient or communicate complex or difficult information, this will usually require a face-to-face discussion.

You can send urgent information by e-mail, but make sure you have a process to verify that it has been received.

Since email is not a secure form of communication, it will be inappropriate for certain types of information or under certain circumstances. This applies even if the information itself seems relatively innocuous, such as an optical prescription, so use your judgment and knowledge of the patient’s situation to determine if email is appropriate.

Inadvertent disclosure of personal information such as a home address to the wrong recipient would breach privacy and could potentially cause harm.

Confirm patient consent

Also check that the patient understands that email is not secure and confirm that they still want the information sent this way. Keep a copy of their consent if they give it in writing. Or if the patient consents verbally, document this in the clinical record.

Check the address

Private information emailed to the wrong recipient accounted for nearly 18% of breaches reported to OAIC during the last reporting period (June to December 2021).

Always make sure:

• what address does the patient want you to use? Patients may not want health information sent to a work or shared address

• That you typed the correct address – pay special attention to auto-complete errors which could cause the software to complete a recently or frequently used address instead of the one you started typing.

Ideally, contact the patient and ask them to email their request to you. You can reply to this address, which both ensures that you are using the correct address and confirms their consent.

Protect sensitive information

Your policy should also indicate whether clinical or sensitive information should only be sent as an attachment, or sometimes in a password-protected file. You need a protocol for providing the passwords (for example, phone the patient with the password).

It is always best to ensure that there is no sensitive information in the body of the email.

Use a confidentiality clause

Although you want to avoid sending emails to unintended recipients, it’s always helpful to include a privacy disclaimer as an extra layer of protection.

Document and communicate your approach

Make sure someone in the firm is responsible for handling incoming emails appropriately and in a timely manner. All emails should also be documented in the patient’s clinical record and stored appropriately. Your policy should also outline how to handle and store clinical images sent by email.

If you have an email address on your website, make it very clear how and when that address is monitored.

You may need to add a disclaimer that patients should not use email if they need an urgent response and provide another appropriate emergency contact. This information could also be included in an automatic response for emails sent to this address.

Disclaimer: This article is intended to provide general feedback and information. It does not constitute legal or medical advice. You should seek the advice of an attorney or other professional before relying on any content and make appropriate clinical decisions based on individual circumstances.

BYD reports to police that Nanning Fakes company has been bought by Chinese giant NEV https://teletrust.info/byd-reports-to-police-that-nanning-fakes-company-has-been-bought-by-chinese-giant-nev/ Mon, 26 Sep 2022 02:46:56 +0000 https://teletrust.info/byd-reports-to-police-that-nanning-fakes-company-has-been-bought-by-chinese-giant-nev/ (Yicai Global) Sept. 26 — BYD reported a company in Nanning, southwest China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Regions to police, falsely claiming it was acquired by a unit of the Chinese automaker. of new energy vehicles, Yicai Global has learned.

(Yicai Global) Sept. 26 — BYD reported a company in Nanning, southwest China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Regions to police, falsely claiming it was acquired by a unit of the Chinese automaker. of new energy vehicles, Yicai Global has learned.

BYD Guangxi New Energy is not a wholly owned subsidiary of BYD Auto Industry, and it forged BYD’s seal and the signature of its chairman Wang Chuanfuthe, the Shenzhen-based company told Yicai Global on Sept. 24. The bogus company has yet to respond. .

Nanning Xiaozhongzheng’s commercial secretary recently announced that all of its shares have been acquired by BYD Auto Industry and it will change its name to BYD Guangxi New Energy.

The Nanning Municipal Administrative Examination and Approval Bureau has already canceled the registration of the commercial secretarial company to change its name.

It is unclear whether the counterfeit seal used by Xiaozhongzheng’s commercial secretary was created by Shangdian Seal Production, a seal engraving company whose legal representative is Nong Caiyun, the major shareholder and legal representative of Xiaozhongzheng’s commercial secretary, according to the Tianyancha enterprise information platform.

BYD has invested over 16.3 billion CNY (2.3 billion USD) in at least five major projects in Nanning so far this year, which could be grounds for fraud.

This is not the first time that BYD has found itself in such a situation. In May 2017, Li Juan, on behalf of Shanghai Yuhong Cultural Communication, contacted BYD to do free publicity and then forged his seal to do business on behalf of BYD, the automaker said in July 2018. Li said was sentenced to 14 years for contract fraud in December 2019.

Wipro laid off 300 employees to do it; TCS COO NG Subramaniam said it was an “ethical issue”; Tech Mahindra CEO CP Gurnani backed him up; and Infosys said it would terminate the contracts of those found guilty.

Moonlighting is not a new concept, but the pandemic has given it greater visibility. When thousands of IT professionals in India started working from home, they found more time to take on a second or third assignment. The main reasons for doing so are extra income, the opportunity to prove their abilities in different jobs, non-recognition by employers and the use of free time.

As employees started working from anywhere during the pandemic, managers could not supervise them. “IT companies have seen huge demand during the pandemic as every industry sector wanted to digitize their processes,” said Aditya Narayan Mishra, MD and CEO of CIEL HR. “The demand for IT professionals increased, but the supply was not sufficient. As a result, companies were desperate to recruit employees without doing due diligence. »

A few experts THE WEEK spoke to said moonlighting cannot be bracketed one way or the other. “It prevails due to the shortage of talent in the market, supported by the growing demand for niche skills in the IT sector,” said Arjun Ramaraju, CEO of software company Conneqt Digital.

Experts pointed out that the concert model was also viewed negatively, but has now become an accepted way of doing things around the world. Therefore, rather than limiting it altogether, it would be fruitful to discuss whether moonlighting can be explored in a transparent, compliant, and secure manner.

Sarita Digumarti, head of learning at online learning portal Unext, said: “I think the definition of moonlighting is currently vague. Is it moonlighting when a software developer takes gigs as an artist or musician after hours? Before implementing strict laws and being downright dismissive about it, clarifying what moonlighting means would be a good start to developing new policies for the future workforce.

She recalled a recent report by Kotak Institutional Equities, which indicated that, of the approximately 400 respondents, almost 65% knew professionals who “moonlighted”. “It’s also an inference to understand why 42% of them prefer telecommuting,” Digumarti said. “Dual income is obviously a good sign from an employee’s perspective. But if we ask at whose expense, many more dimensions would open up.

Prerna Kohli, Human Resources Manager at Cyware, an IT company in Bengaluru, said: “Under-reporting has attracted attention as it is a breach of employment contract and [creates] a reasonable degree of risk to confidential information and the employer’s operating model. Companies should deploy security tools and techniques to detect and prevent risks associated with undeclared work, such as data leaks and intellectual property abuse. Beyond political measures, HR managers must maintain clear communication with all employees to avoid conflicts or a drop in performance. Recruitment practices should also be reassessed to highlight high-risk profiles during the hiring process.

HR experts estimate that around 30% of IT employees have moonlighted at some point in their career. “Given the intensity of the messaging coming from the IT bigwigs, it’s likely that moonlighting as a phenomenon is prevalent in some pockets and growing,” said Alok Shende, CEO of Ascentius. Consulting, based in Mumbai. “However, slandering all individuals engaging in moonlighting might not be appropriate. There might be people working on opportunities that might not be available in their 9 to 5 day jobs. Companies need to… provide avenues for undeclared workers to co-opt them into the formal process.

Experts say employers should develop a clear policy that helps employees be open about side jobs and choose those that don’t harm the organization. “Employers should conduct stay interviews and regular feedback sessions, provide career progression plans to employees and give them challenging work to make them feel confident and create a sense of belonging,” added Mishra. “It will increase employee retention rate and improve business performance.”

The question now is whether moonlighting will have a long-term impact on the industry. “Overall, this could have a big impact on IT businesses and also people,” said Sathya Pramod, CEO of Kayess Square Consulting Private Limited and former CFO of Tally Solutions. “Attrition, which was already high, will increase. This will lead to the quality of work being compromised. On the other hand, it will also increase costs since these companies will have to maintain one more bank than was previously the norm. Employees will initiate a “try and buy” program where they will moonlight and determine if the new place is better. In the long run, it’s not great even for the employees. There will be mental breakdowns and the greed for money will lead them to overvalue themselves and when the demand for professionals drops, it will be impossible to adapt to the new normal.

However, a few HR experts said it was too early to predict the impact. “HR managers need to put corrective policies in place and talk to their employees to proactively prevent this issue…rather than reacting with hasty action,” Kohli said. “In the long term, the entry points into the screening process must be strongly regulated to eliminate the risks of moonlighting. [The practice] prevails especially among employees with three to six years of experience.

It is also expected that the industry will eventually settle down. “An effective way would be to review employment contracts,” Ramaraju said. “For businesses, security and privacy should be treated as non-negotiable, while for employees, transparency, flexibility and an encouraging environment are key to maintaining harmony. Needless to say, there needs to be more debate.

Verdict – Preston North End owner’s update is welcome but changes little https://teletrust.info/verdict-preston-north-end-owners-update-is-welcome-but-changes-little/ Sat, 24 Sep 2022 11:30:00 +0000 https://teletrust.info/verdict-preston-north-end-owners-update-is-welcome-but-changes-little/ The frustrations of the PNE fanbase have been mounting in recent weeks, especially since the summer transfer window closed, and it seems that was enough for Hemmings to put his side forward.

The frustrations of the PNE fanbase have been mounting in recent weeks, especially since the summer transfer window closed, and it seems that was enough for Hemmings to put his side forward.

Kudos to the president, he didn’t have to. . It’s not often the case that clubs get the level of communication that North End fans have grown accustomed to, whether from Peter Ridsdale as manager or now from Hemmings on behalf of the property.

First and foremost, Hemmings is a North End supporter and often sees him arriving to watch the Lilywhites in the stands.

PNE’s Deepdale Stadium.

The declaration, however, did not satisfy everyone. There were plenty of takeaways from the 1,500 words Hemmings collected. He covered the budget, Premier League and parachute payments, the academy, Deepdale and Euxton Training Ground and future ownership.

One point that has calmed some of the supporters is that the Hemmings family currently invest £12m a year to run the North End. That’s after all the TV revenue and income is accounted for, it closes a big gap in the club’s finances.

It is certainly not an insignificant sum of money, irrelevant to the value of the owners and even to take into account that most clubs operate at a loss.

But overall, there wasn’t much about the statement that we didn’t already know.

There needs to be clear communication between those at the top and those spending their hard-earned cash following their club across the country in the midst of a cost-of-living crisis.

One thing that’s clear in the update is that Hemmings cares deeply about North End. Writing 1,500 words for no other reason than to update fans and show that the Hemmings family still cares about the club is very welcome and heartwarming.

We already knew that budgets have gotten tighter since the death of Craig’s father, Trevor Hemmings. We knew PNE couldn’t spend much more and they basically ran out of funds towards the end of the window. I reported in July that North End needed Matthew Olosunde to leave in order to bring in another right-back. There is consistency, though it won’t necessarily be welcome.

Hemmings also wrote about not getting in the way of the next “big checkbook” provided they didn’t have a tire-kicking propensity this time around. Even when Trevor Hemmings was the owner, the club, like everything, had a price. The main thing to take away from the statement I feel is that the president clearly cares about the club and even partly shares some of the fans’ frustrations.

Does it change a lot? Not particularly. But it is good that the hierarchy of the PNE responds to the concerns of the supporters.

The AEW referees had a particularly poor performance yesterday (Sept. 23) at the Dynamite Grand Slam. The first three games of the night were all decided by cheating that the referees were never in the right position to catch.

My colleague Manolo has spice pointed out this problem in his review of the show:

“The problem was the cumulative effect of overbooking at the important moments. Individually, the first three cheat finishes were acceptable. One after another, one after another runs out.

This point of criticism was shared by many fans. On Wrestling observation radio, Dave Meltzer indicated that this was not a case of miscommunication between the agents/producers. No, Tony Khan purposely booked three straight finishes like this because it’s part of a planned angle with referee Paul Turner.

Khan then appeared to back up that claim by posting the following tweet today:

So AEW referees need to stop sucking their job, and it’s up to lead official Paul Turner to make sure they pull themselves together. It doesn’t exactly sound like the most compelling angle in the world, especially during such an important week of AEW television.

Will you agree Carnage tomorrow night (spoilers here) to see if Paul Turner has what it takes to handle this crucial mission?

We often associate anger with explosion, violence and hurt, but it can also have multiple benefits such as the ability for clear, honest and kind communication, a strong sense of self and the ability to ask for what which we need. The key to accessing the benefits of anger is regulation. When we are emotionally regulated, we can ride the waves of our emotions in limited and sustained ways. We can approach our emotions and their messages with curiosity, and we train ourselves to communicate what we need assertively. We can reach out to our emotions, of all shapes and sizes, with curiosity, listen and discern the message. (Also read: 10 ways to deal with anger: an expert shares tips)


Sara Aird, storyteller, educator and founder of Breaking Down CPTSD, talked about healthy anger and emotional regulation in her recent Instagram post.

What is emotion regulation?

It is the ability to navigate the full spectrum of your feelings, both pleasant and unpleasant. Having skills to listen and discern the messages of your emotions and being able to communicate how you feel to others is emotion regulation. It helps to choose how you react and act after listening to how you feel. Emotion regulation is not about feeling calm all the time or managing your emotions perfectly or doing whatever your emotions tell you to do.

Emotions are our internal messaging system

They let us know when we’re mourning a loss (sadness), they let us know when we need to slow down and be careful (fear), and when we’re content (contentment). Emotional dysregulation could be described as a backlog of messages without the skills to read them. Over time, the pending messages become stronger and stronger.


What is the message of anger?

The message of anger is centered on limits, responsibility, protection, autonomy and independence. Anger helps us to differentiate and distinguish ourselves from those around us. It monitors our relationship interactions and speaks up when we have been misunderstood, hurt, or invaded. Anger helps us know what is our responsibility and what is another person’s responsibility. Fluid anger will allow you to laugh at yourself with compassion and set your limits with mercy, as both actions stem from the inner strength and honorable self-definition that anger bestows. When your anger can’t take its natural course, you’ll find it difficult to set and maintain your boundaries, you’ll tend to dishonor or mingle with others, and your self-image will be jeopardized by your addiction to capricious opinions from the outside. world.


What is the message of deep, multi-layered anger?

Our boundaries, our sense of self, and our security have been completely invaded and devastated. When deep, multi-layered anger is supported and listened to, instead of being expressed inappropriately, it becomes a call for healing from a devastated and unprotected soul.
