Recently, researchers released the results of their latest study. According to the latest research, googling the health-related questions can impact positively on patients’ experience in the hospital’s emergency room. Earlier, this study was published in theMedical Journal of Australia (MJA).
Victorian scientists proclaimed that they had studied about 400 individuals who were presented to the Melbourne hospitals’ emergency departments. The study was carried out for a period of about 4 Months in 2017. The results of this research highlighted that about 49% of patients were searching the health-related information on the Internet on regular basis.
The earlier study pointed out that about 35% of patients involved in the survey were found to be searching the Internet for information on the particular health issue for which they had visited the hospital emergency room. Scientists reviewed patients’ experience with the help of a “doctor–patient relationship” scale. They found that about 68% of patients who had googled their symptoms thought this assisted them to communicate with their doctor more effectively.

The recent assessment highlighted that almost all children had an unpleasant event within 3 Months of the treatment. However, the research also highlighted that most of these events were found to be mild and not related to the therapy.
According to the NSW study, the treating doctors and carers of these patients stated that more than half of the group had demonstrated at least a little progress in their health. The recent research paper was published in the Medical Journal of Australia. Pediatric neurologists had tracked tolerability, adverse events, and the subjective impressions of treating neurologists and caregivers amongst the initial group of children.

The trade war takes a fresh turn as the US President announced to impose fresh tariffs on China. The second set of items that is worth $16 billion or £12.4 billion will be facing a tariff of 25%, which will include products like aerials and motorcycles.
The disagreement spiked up in July and the negative impact is accelerating exponentially since then. As the US imports to China is greater than the exports, it is speculated that the second set of tariff will severely damage the companies as well as the consumers.
On the other hand, China has not stepped back to impose a retaliatory tariff on the US products like cars, buses, coal, and medical instruments. China has also decided to take up the matter to the WTO or World Trade Organization that will judge the matter without any biased influence. Previously, the matter was brought forward by China when Washington imposed tariffs for the first time. In fact, the Commerce Ministry of China has also stated that the US is violating all the rules and regulations designed by the WTO.
China is not the only country to receive the blow of tariff from the US; Donald Trump has also imposed tariffs on the EU, Canada, and Mexico in order to promote selling more American products, especially the ones that have been retaliated.
Various companies and industrial giants have given testimony regarding the matter of tariff at the Office of the Trade Representative in the US. In spite of the action, the US took another measure and imposed 25% tariff on China.
As a result of the same, various US companies have stated that the tariff will also affect the consumers of the US and they will not be able to sustain another blow without elevating the prices for the domestic people.

Uber has mailed a ticket received from San Francisco Airport to one of their drivers due to violation of rules for not displaying Uber’s logo on his taxi. This $100 fine was a big loss for him that was deducted from his daily wage and he was not able to appeal. This situation was faced by a driver from San Ramon named Mustafa Ayubi and other drivers from Uber. The SFO receives ticket charges from Lyft and Uber’s drivers rather than tracking for payments and thus they can get their money guaranteed.
Lyft includes cost of traffic tickets while Uber pays for the ticket & later deducts it from the drivers’ earnings. The drivers don’t even have any idea about this and they are notified after several months related to this. Ayuba said that we are helpless and we cannot fight against this. Ayuba is a driver who drives about ten to twelve hours daily to nurture his family with three children. He was charged thrice with $100 fine every time due to absence of “trade dress” on his taxi even though the taxi has vinyl decals of Uber on the cab along with the SFO permit at the front side.
Ayuba appealed to the Greenlight Hub of Uber from Daly City, but they told him to protest by saying that he wasn’t using Uber App. But he said he will not lie anyhow. SFO has charged a fine of about $1.74million to Lyft and Uber due to the violations of 16617 drivers for not having trade dress, parking outside the designated parking lots or not putting the SFO playcard. SFO said that this system is essential because Lyft and Uber bear operating permits by airport and thus they are responsible to follow the rules. Charging the drivers by fine helps them to correct their behavior, a SFO spokesperson said.

The latest unparalleled move has prompted an equally incomparable blowback from about 13 of the most respected national security figures in the country. All of them came together and wrote a joint letter criticizing the latest move. They described it as an ill-considered and unprecedented move. Brennan proclaimed that he had been approached by numerous lawyers and was aggressively considering his options.

Confessing that Lenovo made some errors in India in the smartphone business, the firm’s CEO Yang Yuanqing this week pledged to reclaim its earlier glory in the coming years by rolling out right goods for the India market below both its Motorola and Lenovo brands.
“India is a very significant market for us. We have room for enchantments in the handset business,” Yuanqing claimed to the media here while taking part in a roundtable meeting. The meeting was along with other Lenovo Executive Council’s members. The council is the highest decision-making entity of the firm.
“In general, our aim is to create income of almost $6 Billion in the upcoming 5 Years from India,” Yuanqing claimed to the media in an interview. He further added that the firm is aiming on branching out all verticals of its businesses comprising the PC (personal computer) and smart devices section that comprises data center business and tablets apart from handsets section.
While Lenovo’s tablet and PC businesses have carried on to post healthy development over the last few years in India, its market share in the handset business witnessed a drop in the 2017–2018 fiscal year. This dropped down to almost 6% from 9% in the last financial year, claimed the firm mentioning data from the IDC (International Data Corp).
On a related note, the execution of 5G tech is attaining momentum and handset manufacturers are now aiming on bringing their 5G handsets to the market. Taking the lead, Lenovo has verified that it will be the first handset creator to roll out a 5G handset fueled by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset.

Google is frequently operating on enhancing Google Maps, its navigation application. The firm has now rolled out a new function for the Android consumers. The new function will allow consumers to see the battery percentage left on the smartphone. The new functionality is claimed to separate in line with the location sharing functionality of Google Maps.
So, when a consumer will share their position then they will also share the battery percentage of their handset with everybody to see. As per a report by Android Police, the battery sharing function has been in progress for sometime but was not seen to everybody. In addition to this, the functionality also did not show the exact battery level until now.
The report also claimed that on some occasions the battery percentage of a handset was less that 15% but, it showed a formal message claiming “John’s battery is between 50 and 75%.” Now, it appears that the firm has operated on the function and is steadily launching it out to everybody.
The function may not be helpful for the consumers who do not employ the location sharing function. On the other hand, the users who employ the location sharing function will find it useful since it assists them to keep a track of status of other user’s handset.
