Harvest Information Program registration sees changes in Arkansas | Opinion

Beginning this year all hunters who wish to pursue doves, ducks, geese and other migratory birds in Arkansas will need to register for the Harvest Information Program either online at agfc.com, through the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission smartphone app or at an AGFC regional office, nature center or shooting range. In an effort to improve the quality of data being submitted to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Arkansas HIP registration will no longer be offered at license vendors such as sporting goods stores.

Any hunter who chases migratory birds, from dove to ducks, has likely heard the message to “Get HIP,” during the last two decades, meaning to register for the federal Harvest Information Program before hunting migratory birds. The nationwide program was initiated by the USFWS in cooperation with states in 1999 to gather consistent information about how many birds of each species were being harvested across

Malware discovered in some cheap Chinese phones that can steal the user’s money

Transsion Holdings, the Chinese company behind Tecno and Infinix smartphone brands used to be a feature phone manufacturer pre-2014 but since the company released its first smartphone in 2014, the start-up has grown rapidly to emerge as a leading brand in Africa and some Asian countries like India. The brand is known for low-priced smartphones that have given low-income earners in these developing nations access to smartphones.

Tecno is extremely popular in Africa and is owned by Transsion

However, that cheap phone may come with a price which in the long run makes it an expensive sh*t. A recent report by BuzzFeed News alleges that some Chinese phones contain malware that secretlydownloaded apps and tries to subscribe the user to services without his knowledge or permission. A case in point was that of a 41-year-old South African who got the Tecno W2. The phone was plagued with pop-up ads interrupting

NHS contact tracing app ‘is unlikely to reduce the spread of Covid-19’

The new NHS Test and Trace app won’t work unless the vast majority of the country installs it and even then social distancing will still be required, a new study claims.

The NHS app launched in the Isle of Wight last week as a pilot scheme, with users urged to scan barcodes when they go out to create a ‘virtual diary’ of movements.

This is the second trial on the island by NHS following its disastrous first attempt, which was abandoned in June.    

A new study by University College London found that these types of tracking apps only work if the vast majority of a population install and actively use them. 

By reviewing 15 earlier scientific studies into the use of the apps, the team found that even if 80 per cent of a population install them other public health restrictions would still be needed to slow the spread of

Your smartphone tells you if you have drunk too much

Your smartphone tells you if you have drunk too much

Drinking too much alcohol is not only bad for our health, but it is also dangerous for others if we drive after drinking. That’s why all the governments around the world have launched information campaigns to dissuade citizens, especially the youngest, from driving after drinking.

Governments have imposed very low legal limits on the percentages of alcohol in the blood of those who drive. In the US or the UK, one can drink and drive with less than 80mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood. In India, the permissible Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) is set at 0.03% per 100ml blood. That works out to 30mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood.

Different measures that indicate the same thing: it is enough to drink very little to exceed the legal limits and become dangerous. Yet millions of people around the world still drive after drinking too much.

Perhaps, the answer

Xiaomi may have ditched the Android One program

When Xiaomi and Google announced that they will work together to offer a smartphone running on near vanilla Android One and Xiaomi’s hardware specifications and affordable pricing, it was equally exciting for purists and geeks alike.

The Chinese smartphone maker did announce not one but three iterations under the Mi A line up i.e. Mi A1, A2 and the A3. However, reports suggest that Xiaomi has cancelled the A-series and there won’t be any Mi A4.

To recall the Mi A3 was launched approximately a year back in August 2019 and is already due for an update. Xiaomi has not officially announced the discontinuation nor has it confirmed the launch date of the Mi A4.
