Side channel attacks take advantage of patterns in the information exhaust that computers constantly give off: the electric emissions from a computer's monitor or hard drive , for instance, that emanate slightly differently depending on what information is crossing the screen or being read by the drive's magnetic head.
Last year NIWA air quality scientist Dr Ian Longley launched the Arrowtown project that included some outdoor monitoring and indoor air quality monitoring by people in their homes.
The company said today it’s releasing what it calls the “most comprehensive medical equipment service database in the world.” The collection of thousands of files is supposed to help biomedical engineering technicians—the techs who update or fix medical equipment on site at health care facilities—repair everything from imaging equipment to EKG monitors to ventilators.
Dr Longley has been monitoring air quality in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch since Level 4 restrictions were implemented and says working from home did not only cut emissions but could also reduce health risks.
After almost six weeks of monitoring air quality during Level 3 and 4 lockdown restrictions, scientist Dr Ian Longley is now asking people to record where and when woodsmoke is affecting their health and lives.
"Mapping peatlands to know their location, extent and greenhouse gas emissions potential, can help countries to plan and better manage their land, water and biodiversity, mitigating climate change and adapting to it more effectively," says Maria Nuutinen, FAO's lead peatlands expert with the Forestry Department and co-author of the publication.
Sick patients need their vitals recorded and their symptoms monitored, and staff needs to get updates if someone’s condition starts to worsen (from fever and cough to shortness of breath as blood oxygen levels fall).
These are broadly defined as hazard monitoring, resilience, diagnostics for essential services like biosecurity, maintaining animal facilities, and infrastructure that requires constant attention (e.g., security of samples, collections and computing facilities), as follows.

27 January 2020, Rome - The Global Forest Observations Initiative (GFOI) today launched a portal - the first such comprehensive platform - to track international capacity development support to developing countries in forest monitoring for climate action.
But a Canadian health monitoring platform had beaten them both to the punch, sending word of the outbreak to its customers on December 31.BlueDot uses an AI-driven algorithm that scours foreign-language news reports, animal and plant disease networks, and official proclamations to give its clients advance warning to avoid danger zones like Wuhan.
Scientists revealed that it’s blowing in the air and swirling in the seas and tainting our food and water, with as yet unknown effects on human health .Microplastic pollution isn’t particularly new to science—researchers have been monitoring the problem for decades.
Fitbit kicked off this trend when it released the first tracker in 2009.Little more than a glorified pedometer at the time, the Fitbit couldn’t monitor your heart rate, pay for anything, or even tell you the time.Fears over bad sleep are getting the TED treatment and topping best-seller lists.
To meet its climate goal as stipulated in the Paris agreement, China will need to reduce its coal power capacity by 40 percent over the next decade, according to Global Energy Monitor’s analysis.
11 November 2019, Rome - FAO today launched a new $7.1 million project supported by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) to make forest data more accessible, transparent and available, and, in particular, help developing countries to meet the Paris Climate Agreement's enhanced transparency requirements.
The Operational Tillage Information System (OpTIS), developed by scientists and engineers at Dagan, uses publicly-available, remote sensing data from Landsat and Sentinel 2 satellites to monitor trends in the adoption rate of soil health practices—no-till, conservation tillage and cover crops—each year.
Whatever the case, our baby seemed fine, and we resolved to turn the irksome air quality monitor off.
Last week, Santa Fe-based Descartes Labs (where Mark is a cofounder) announced a bold initiative to utilize satellite mapping and modeling to monitor methane emissions, starting in the world’s highest-producing oilfield, the Permian Basin.
"The adoption and use of SEPAL for forest monitoring has exceeded all expectations and its impact on country reporting to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is already a significant improvement compared to previous years," said Tiina Vahanen, Chief, Forestry Policy and Resources Division in FAO's Forestry Department.

The fiery, anti-environment populist has encouraged settlements in the Amazon region, sacked the head of the government agency that monitors deforestation from space, and just this week blamed NGOs for setting the fires to make him look bad.On Tuesday, a satellite took this image of forest fires burning across three Brazilian states.
They've negotiated a settlement with Equifax that entitles all victims to 10 years of free credit monitoring, or $125. This (unfortunately) could actually come in handy, given that Social Security numbers taken from Equifax are starting to show up on the dark web, and consumers have already suffered identity theft related to the breach, according to Pennsylvania attorney general Josh Shapiro.
Audi has voluntarily recalled some of its first electric vehicles, over battery issues that could cause fires, though none have yet been reported. The E-tron system monitors the battery for moisture, and Audi says a yellow battery warning light should appear if the vehicle’s sensors find something has gone wrong inside.
Many of the updates focused on health , including Noise app, which will monitor, well, noise surrounding the device and alert its user when a cacophony reaches potentially harmful levels.
Apple announced new health and fitness features for its wearable that make the Apple Watch uniquely powerful as a personal monitoring tool. Beginning this fall, Apple Watch will track your activity trends over time, help protect your hearing by alerting you to harmful levels of ambient noise, and allow users to track their menstrual cycles.
Even the most powerful video-editing workstation is nothing without a display that can best represent the machine's output, and for that Apple has delivered something that might be more impressive than the Mac Pro. The Pro Display XDR is a 32-inch Retina 6K monitor.
Features like Tesla Autopilot count as Level 2 (out of five) on SAE’s scale of automation features, meaning the car works the steering wheel and pedals, but the driver must actively monitor the system and remain ready to retake control.
