Notify NYC App - NYCEM

We're going through times that many are understandably having difficulty coping. Taking a bit of time to pause or slow things down will help get us back on track. If we don't take care of ourselves and those around us, we won't be able to enjoy the future.

Here in NYC, hearsay isn't enough when we can check official details for ourselves. Especially while we're dealing with this COVID-19 situation. It seems a good time to share official mobile app resources that can be useful. If you're being overwhelmed by the "news" on your social media feeds but still want to say in the loop, maybe these can help.

The Notify NYC app Is the official emergency events and city services notification app. You can adjust alerts as needed. A map is shown of the area that's involved. -
https://www1.nyc.gov/site/em/resources/notify-nyc-app.page

The NYC311 app has parking and traffic alerts, school closures, garbage pick up details, etc. You can also submit reports when needed. For more complex issues, it's still recommended to call 311. - https://portal.311.nyc.gov/article/?kanumber=KA-01025

CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) also has a direct app. Get officially released details directly and bypass any media spin you may be concerned about - https://www.cdc.gov/mobile/applications/cdcgeneral/promos/cdcmobileapp.html

While there isn't an app for this, on a more global scale is the World Health Organization site where the details are from a collective of health professionals around the world. - https://www.who.int/health-topics/coronavirus

If there are any apps you know of that may also help, please feel free to share their official links or complete names below. Let's make it easier for anyone, no matter how tech savvy they are, to find them.

The Notify NYC mobile application — free for iOS and Android operating systems — gives you up-to-the-minute information about emergency situations and/or planned events in New York City. By enabling location services, you will be informed about emergency activity around you wherever you are in t...

02/21/2020

When I see the toy market becoming more diverse and featuring female action figures, IAmElemental is the first brand I think of. Mainstream companies seemed to start trying to catch up after. There's a great team behind this brand.

We lost. But we won.

REPOST: FEBRUARY 2017

As expected, at the TOTY (Toy of the Year) Awards, IAmElemental lost Action Figure of the Year to the DC Super Hero Girls.

But, here's the thing:

When I wrote the script for our Kickstarter video back in 2014, I opened with a question: Where are the action figures for girls?

Arguing that 1) the female action figures on the market were hyper-sexualized and designed for an adult consumer and that 2) despite the toy industry's belief to the contrary - people would, in fact, buy female action figures designed for kids, we created a figure with a healthier breast-to-hip ratio, reinvented the superhero myth, tested the hypothesis on Kickstarter...and Backers in all fifty states and six continents helped prove that we were right; there is a market for female action figures for girls.

We had such a remarkable response, in fact, that TIME Magazine named us one of the 25 Best Inventions of the year.

So, when DC Super Hero Girls won, they won a category that IAmElemental - in partnership with our Kickstarter Backers - helped to create.

Every time Mattel/DC Entertainment wins an award, or succeeds in selling the DC Super Hero Girls, [or an episode of their animated show airs on Cartoon Network], they validate the hypothesis we tested via Kickstarter way back in May of 2014.

We are absolutely thrilled to have been nominated for Action Figure of the Year AND Rookie of the Year. The industry recognition means so much to us. And we are grateful to the Toy Association for helping to spread the word about our small, self-funded startup.

Even though we lost, we truly feel like we won.

Actually, we win every day. Because we have the best customers on the planet.

Thank you, as always, for your support.

If you're at Toy Fair come by and say hello!
We are at the Entertainment Earth Booth this year.

Don’t Abbreviate 2020 When Signing Documents, Maine Police Warn

This is an important one: Don't make the mistake of setting yourself up for fraud. Take no shortcuts on writing 20 instead of 2020. The date 1/2/20 could easily be changed to 1/2/2019 and so on. Use the mm/dd/yyyy or yyyy/mm/dd formats accordingly to spare yourself the chance of trouble.

With the new decade upon us, police in Maine are advising people to write out the year 2020 when signing legal documents.

Expert disputes Apple on data recovery from water-damaged iPhones

So many lose their data just so a company can sell a new device. They're trying to shut down those who are trying to help. Companies are often quick to sell access of our data for advertising but choose not to help people trying to recover their own data.

When a Newfoundland couple dropped their iPhone in a pond they thought thousands of their precious vacation photos were gone for good — at least that’s what ...

There are real consequences to what some want to call "jokes," as there should be. This is exactly what should be happening and no one should be putting it in the "slippery slope" category of policing speech. This is how people will learn that there are real prices to play for being so casual with the wrong words.

‘How do we know he’s not gonna be the kid in Parkland?’ — This teen in Florida was arrested after ‘joking’ about shooting up his school in a video game chat

Teen Slaps Apple With A $1 Billion Lawsuit After Facial Recognition Leads To False Arrest

For everyone who's just hearing about the JetBlue facial recognition situation, here's another story. Yes, Apple uses facial recognition too. While the technology may be great in some way, way it's being used and enforced isn't ready for mainstream yet. Also, our rights to privacy have long been withering away and that needs to be fixed.

A student in New York is suing Apple for allegedly linking his identity to a thief using its facial recognition technology.

It's nice to see progress on decreasing waste that damages our ecosystem. For some reason, this isn't getting enough press. If there are venues that need new containers, http://www.yourgreen2go.com is a great option.

"As of January 1, 2019, New York City stores, food service establishments, and mobile food commissaries may no longer offer, sell or possess single-use foam food containers such as foam takeout clamshells, cups, plates, bowls and trays. Additionally, manufacturers and stores may no longer sell or offer for sale loose fill foam packaging (“packing peanuts”) in the city."

Man gets his $650 World Series ticket stolen after posting it to Instagram - DIY Photography

A reminder of why it's not good to post photos of tickets and even ID to your social media. It's just not worth the risque. Even photos that show your work badges clearly can be a risk that's not worth taking.

It’s not uncommon that Instagram photos end up being stolen and shared without credits. Some even got sold for big money (remember Richard Prince?). But, recently a Red Sox fan ended up having his $650 World Series ticket stolen – all because he posted it to Instagram. 28-year-old Robbie Johnson...

How to Manage App Permissions on Android

In light of a few posts floating around, check all your app permissions. Apps you install only have access to what you grant them. You can turn off access to things after they install. Though, the app may request access again when you use it. It's up to you what you allow them to do. These instructions are for Android.

Android permissions used to be a mess, but modern versions of Android have simplified them greatly. Now, Android has an iOS-style permission system in which you grant apps access to certain features, hardware, or data as it needs them. You can also manually revoke permissions from any app—even one...
