French lawmakers have voted to ban the use of smartphones in schools.
Lawmakers decided that students under the age of 15 must leave their cellphones at home, or at least have them turned off during school hours. French high schools will be allowed to decide whether they implement the ban in their classrooms.
The measure prohibits the use of tablets, computers, and other internet-connected devices as well. There are exceptions in place for students with disabilities and for the educational use of devices in the classroom and in extra-curricular activities. This was a campaign initiated by the French president Emmanuel Macron.
In preparation for the heat at the Tokyo Olympics in 2020, Canadian athletes will test out a new technology at the NACAC track and field championships that is intended to measure the body's core temperature during activity and at rest.
After being swallowed, it moves down the GI tract, where every 30 seconds, the device wirelessly transmits data to an “e-Viewer” that displays the readings and records the temperature during the pill’s journey. The e-viewer can be programmed to issue alerts if the temperature moves outside of a set range.
These tablets, every 30 seconds they will transmit to an e-Viewer, and it will give a reading of the pill's journey so when it stays in your body they will be able to tell you exactly what temperature you going through hand how much water you are loosing, it will check out the humidity and everything...Aki Anastasiou, Tech Guru
