Ingredients of sunscreens are highly toxic to coral reefs, new study says

Sunscreen shields our skin from UV ray by guarding us from premature aging, sun burn and skin cancer. While the use of sun screen is recommended by experts, some of its ingredients pose threat. According to a new research by a team of scientists led by Craig Downs of non-profit scientific organization Haereticus Environmental Laboratory in Virginia, a common UV-filtering compound found in 3500 brands of sunscreen worldwide, is fatal to coral reef. The study says that Oxybenzone which is one of the key materials of sunscreen contributes directly in the decline of coral reefs around the world.

The study was published in the Archives of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology this Tuesday. It highlighted that every year around 6,000 and 14,000 tons of sunscreen lotion cleans up in the coral reefs areas, mostly in those popular tourist spots like Hawaii and the Caribbeans.Most of these sunscreen stimulate viruses in the algae, known as zooxanthellae, which live within corals. Zooxanthellae plays a vital role in coral reefs life span because it provides the vibrant color and supplies food energy through photosynthesis.

Review: 2016 Kia Sorento offers upscale flavours for a happy meal price

Upscale crossovers seem a dime a dozen these days. After all, they’re even wearing the names of non-upscale brands like Kia.
On paper, the Kia Sorento sounds like just another mid-size crossover in an already-crowded field, but this actually one surprised us in ways we didn’t expect.

Walkaround: 8.0/10
Kia made the Sorento longer for 2015, making the optional third-row seat more spacious and increasing the car’s utility as a seven-seater. It wears the added size well: the extra length masks its height and gives it the look of a big station wagon in profile.
Interior: 7.8/10
A handsome exterior might make other people think you spent a lot of money on a car, but a nicely-finished interior like this one makes you feel better about the money you’ve spent.
The Sorento starts well below $30,000, but many of the things that made us appreciate our tester only come along once you’re ready to spend half again that much on upgrades.
Still, a driver-configurable gauge cluster is a nice touch, and very well done. The entire dash is well-assembled from quality materials that would not look out of place in a BMW X5 or Audi Q7.
Complaints are few. One however is that, while the second row seat moves out of the way to ease access to the third row, it only does so on the right-hand side; most (if not all) other mid-sized crossovers allow third-row riders to get in through both rear doors.
Tech: 9.0/10
The Sorento’s available tech includes that digital gauge package, but a fully-loaded SX+ version also brings Xenon headlights, power-folding side mirrors, rear-seat air conditioning, navigation, an upgraded stereo, 115-volt power outlet, adaptive cruise control, intelligent keyless entry, power tailgate, heated steering wheel, ventilated front chairs and heated second-row seats, 10-way power driver’s seat, and eight-way power front passenger adjustment. The safety kit includes a 360-degree exterior camera setup, rear cross traffic alert, blind spot detection, lane departure warning, and front collision warning.
That’s a long list of goodies for a mid-priced crossover.
Driving: 6.3/10
Kia offers three engines in the Sorento, including a 2.4-litre four-cylinder, a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder in mid-range models, and a 3.3-litre V6 that’s limited to higher-end trims. While the V6 is the most powerful of the three, that’s not why we like it. Instead, it appeals for its smooth soundtrack and the seamless way it delivers its power. The turbo (an engine used in a wide range of mid-size Hyundai and Kia models) is strong, but can be a bit peaky. The V6 has a relaxed feel that fits with the rest of the upscale feel Kia has built into high-end versions of the Sorento. Couple that with a six-speed automatic transmission that never missed a beat in a week of driving, and it’s hard to find fault with how this big crossover moves.
The V6 is also the thirstiest engine in the Sorento line though, with ratings of 13.4/9.4 L/100 km (city/highway); my tester averaged 14.7 L/100 km in mostly city driving, in cool early-spring weather. That average was far higher than the 11.7 L/100 km indicated by the car’s on-board computer, which is clearly an optimist.
There’s less of an emphasis on tight handling here than in luxury SUVs built by the Germans or Japanese, but the ride is comfortable, and the Sorento’s cornering abilities are perfectly acceptable in a vehicle that will rarely be tested that way in the wild.
All is not perfect, even for a car facing relatively low performance expectations: the steering is vague, and the lack of feel through the wheel as to what’s happening at pavement level can be a detriment to gauging traction levels in wintry conditions. In a similar vein, the mushy brake pedal doesn’t communicate confidence in the Sorento’s ability to stop safely in a hurry. In reality, the Sorento does stop well, but a nice, firm pedal inspires far more confidence than a soft, spongy one.
Value: 9.5/10
If you want loads of features in a vehicle that can carry your family around in plenty of comfort, the Sorento is a good choice: even an Acura MDX (a vehicle known for strong value among upscale crossovers) can’t touch the Sorento’s value-for-money proposition. The Sorento even rivals the over-the-road refinement of some of the most desirable luxury mid-size utilities. That said, $47,000 is a lot of money, regardless of what you’re getting for it. Among its seven-seater variants, we’d call the EX V6 AWD model (it happens to be the least-expensive three-row Sorento) the sweet spot, for $10,000 less than our SX+ tester. At that price, it won’t have all of the high-tech goodies, but will offer the same pleasant driving experience.
Conclusion
Kia continues to make a point of packing in lots of equipment for the price tag attached to its vehicles, but we’ve reached a point where that’s not the most attractive thing about them, and this latest Sorento is the perfect example of that.
Instead, this Kia is a mid-size crossover that would look just fine parked next to the Acura or BMW crossover in your driveway—or in place of it. Overall Rating: 8.1/10

Canada Elections 2015: Uber offers free rides to polls for new customers

Uber announced it would offer new users free rides to and from polling stations in the Canadian cities where it operates.
Uber confirmed the free ride for voters initiative early Monday morning. The company said any new users interested needs to install the Uber app, and enter the promo code “CanadaVOTES”. They will be credited $15 for a ride to the polls and another $15 to return home afterwards.
The incentive is only the latest offering to lure new riders to Uber, which has been massively controversial since its introduction to the Ottawa market last year.
The company regularly offers incentives to encourage new users of its taxi-like services.

Amazing images of Australia from space taken by NASA astronaut Scott Kelly in his #EarthArt

THESE photos of Australia are out of this world — and it’s the incredible view NASA astronaut Scott Kelly can see of our land from space.
Kelly, who is currently aboard the International Space Station, has revealed the latest photos he has taken of the Earth’s surface.
The pictures contain incredible vistas of colour which could be mistaken for a piece of artwork. Kelly shared his photos on his Twitter account with followers using the hashtag #EarthArt.
Given how far he away he was from the continent, it is difficult to identify the exact location but they are understood to be shot around central and northern South Australia.
Kelly is halfway through his year-long space mission, where he is providing data that will help us understand how spending time in space affects the human body.

Hands on Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 tablet

Designed for both work and play, Samsung's flagship Android tablets are looking more like Apple's iPad than ever.
The Galaxy Tab S2 feels impossibly thin and light – barely heavier than the slate chalkboards you might have used at primary school if you're old enough to remember such things. Along with a slimmer build than last year's model, Samsung has also tweaked the Galaxy Tab S2's screen to suit people looking to get some work done rather than just consume content.
In many ways the new Tab S2 range is only an incremental upgrade from last year's Tab S. There's a performance boost thanks to the upgraded Exynos processor, but it's still a 1.9/1.3GHz on "Octa-Core" chip – basically two quad-core chips running side by side. They're accompanied by a generous 3GB of RAM, along with 32GB of onboard storage (up from 16GB) and a micro-SD slot for expansion.
The spec sheet tells a pretty good story. You've got 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi Direct but no NFC. The 8MP rear camera offers improved aperture to enhance low-light performance and the new fingerprint reader now lets you press with your finger rather than swipe.

Biggest lenders tipped to follow Westpac’s lead on home loan rate rise

THE nation’s biggest lenders are poised to follow Westpac’s move to shield retail shareholders from some of the pain of multibillion-dollar regulatory buffers by instead hiking home loan rates, experts say.

Westpac chief executive Brian Hartzer turned to his 600,000 retail investors yesterday in a bid to raise $3.5 billion. But he also whacked consumers by lifting variable rates for owner occupiers to help cover the cost of the move.

It comes as analysts speculate the move could trigger a Reserve Bank interest rate cut as early as next month to spark greater consumer spending.

The banks have now raised about $20 billion this year as they follow a regulatory order to factor more risk into their home loans by setting aside about 50 per cent more cash, in turn increasing their costs.

The cash buffers have to be in place by July next year.

CALL FOR RESERVE BANK TO CUT RATE

Mr Hartzer said “mum and dad” shareholders had already faced lower dividends and a lower return on equity.

“The regulators decided they want us to be unquestionably strong, and ultimately that comes at a cost,” he said.

“We have tried to strike a fair balance between our customers and shareholders.

“We are talking about the investments of mums and dads either as retail investors or through their super fund. The reality is the regulations have increased the amount of capital we hold on mortgages by 50 per cent — that is $6 billion in extra capital.”

Owner-occupier mortgageholders will pay 0.2 percentage points more on Westpac’s variable rate, which will rise to 5.68 per cent on November 20.

At the same time, Westpac’s variable rate for property investors will rise to 5.95 per cent.

The bank set the price for new shares being issued in the rights offer at $25.50 each, implying a 16.1 per cent discount to Tuesday’s closing price of $30.44. Westpac shares are in a trading halt pending the institutional part of the offer.

Mr Hartzer defended the ­vibrancy of the Australian housing market, denying the bank’s move was a bellwether of a slowing property boom.

Instead it was in response to a regulatory agenda by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority and there was still lots of demand in Sydney and Melbourne, he said.

“You have to go back to 1968 to find interest rates at this level. Housing remains attractive to many customers.”

AMP chief economist Shane Oliver said other lenders were under the same pressure as Westpac and some would probably follow suit.

“It’s a blow to the 30 to 40 per cent of Australian households who have a mortgage on their homes and therefore it will be a hit to spending,” he told Bloomberg.

“If the Reserve Bank is to offset this and the flow on to household budgets and consumer spending, then they really have to move in the November meeting.”

Mr Hartzer told Business Daily the move would make Westpac “one of the most highly capitalised banks in the world” but could not say what increased regulations it may face “down the road”.

Westpac also released its unaudited full year financial results, showing a 3 per cent lift in cash earnings to $7.8 billion.

Another popular ad-blocker goes missing from Apple's app store

According to Yoon, Apple told the developers that unpacking the data stream necessary to remove ads from certain companies' apps — Facebook, Google, Pinterest and Yahoo — is a breach of terms.

"No other data from any other app was touched," Yoon said in an email. "We were explicit in our app and our website, and in our presentations to the press about what we were doing, and for what purpose, with what special safeguards."

When they asked Apple whether blocking ads in its News app was acceptable, Yoon said the company did not give them a firm reply.

They plan to re-submit an amended version of the app on Friday morning with all of the same features besides ad blocking within apps from those four companies.

According to Apple, "a few" apps were removed because they installed their own root certificates, which raised security concerns. But the company says it's "working closely with these developers to quickly get their app back."

"Apple is deeply committed to protecting customer privacy and security," the company said in a statement Thursday night. "We’ve removed a few apps from the App Store that install root certificates which enable the monitoring of customer network data that can in turn be used to compromise SSL/TLS security solutions. We are working closely with these developers to quickly get their apps back on the App Store, while ensuring customer privacy and security is not at risk.”

Here's what we knew about the app before

For all the teeth-gnashing over Apple's mobile ad blocking, ads have still enjoyed a safe haven within individual iOS9 apps — that is, until now.

A powerful new ad blocker that hit the hit the App Store last week called Been Choice has invaded that last refuge of commercial promotion: It lets users not only shut out ads in the Safari browser but also within mobile apps like Facebook, Pandora and even Apple's own News app.

The free app filters users' Internet traffic through a VPN, or virtual private network, with a tool that searches out patterns typically associated with ads or trackers.

In a business model rich in irony, its creators plan make money by paying users up to $20 per month in PayPal or Amazon vouchers to watch ads and let them collect data on their browsing habits, which the creators can then sell...to advertisers.

The idea, says David Yoon, who developed the app along with Sang Shin, is to give people a specific, transparent choice over whether they want to see ads or be tracked.

"Today everything is compromised — it's an implicit agreement to allow you to track me if I get free content and see ads," Yoon said. "We want everything to be explicit."

The steady surge in the popularity of ad blocking tools has sparked an ethical debate over their use and a game of cat and mouse between firms that block ads and those that publishers enlist to pierce through those blockers.

Developer Marco Arment said last month that guilt over the way his wildly popular app, Crystal, indiscriminately shut out ads drove him to pull it just a day and a half after it was released.
