What a racquet

Looking outside my window, I certainly don’t see an environmental condition fit for tennis, but the digital world, where it can be summer all year long, holds no such limitations. As such, Nintendo has announced the next three DLC characters lined up for their cutesy sports title, Mario Tennis Aces.

Joining her pals will be the First Lady of the Mario franchise, Donkey Kong damsel turned mayor of New Donk City; Pauline. This talented singer will also be joined by Rosalina’s faithful star sidekick, Luma. Finally, from Bowser’s kingdom, comes knuckle-headed henchman Boom Boom.

There isn’t a lot of information to go on, but you can sneak a look at the three new characters in the brief trailer below. Pauline, Luma and Boom Boom will be added to the roster over the coming months. Mario Tennis Aces is available now on Nintendo Switch.

    X-4 Stormwing Plane to receive significant nerf in Fortnite v7.10 – FortniteINTEL

    Sean Hamilton (MrPopoTFS), Community Coordinator at Epic Games, has announced that the X-4 Stormwing Plane will be receiving a significant nerf in Fortnite patch v7.10.

    Sean responded to a feedback Tweet on Twitter asking for more damage to be applied to the pilot upon the plane being destroyed. To the player’s relief, that’s exactly what the team at Epic Games had in mind.

    While initially saying that pilot damage would be increased from 25 to 35, he then corrected himself stating that it will be raised to 50.

    Update: Turns out it just got changed to 50 in v7.10. 😇

    — Sean Hamilton (@MrPopoTFS) December 13, 2018

    Upon the plane being destroyed, whether that is crashing or being shot down, the pilot will take 50 damage after patch v7.10. This should significantly impact a pilot’s aggressive playstyle and give those on the ground more of a chance.

    Many players have given their feedback on the X-4 Stormwing’s effectiveness, it seems that the loud majority feel the plane is too powerful in its current state. It will be interesting to see if this change fixes that issue.

    An official release for Fortnite patch v7.10 has yet to be announced. It is expected to drop Tuesday, December 18th, 2018 – but that is purely speculation at the time of writing.

    Stay tuned to FortniteINTEL for the full v7.10 patch notes as well as any other changes that may be announced before official release. New cosmetics are also expected to be added in the v7.10 patch.

    Apple Masses the Biggest Heart Study Ever – Motley Fool

    The number of enrollees is staggering and led to much more than bragging rights.

    Danny Vena

    When Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) released the Apple Watch Series 3 late last year, the company telegraphed its growing interest in health with the groundbreaking abilities of the device’s heart-rate monitor and optical sensor. The device’s ability to take heart measurements during workouts, in recovery, and at rest was simple enough. The icing on the cake is its ability to detect a spike in heart rate that typically accompanies atrial fibrillation, also known as AFib. Many patients don’t know they have the condition, since it rarely produces symptoms.

    Apple took this a step further, partnering with Stanford University to launch the Apple Heart Study, an investigation to determine how accurately the Apple Watch could detect these irregular heartbeats, which can be a warning sign of an oncoming stroke. The company sent recruitment emails to Apple Watch users and made signing up for the study easy — simply download an app and wear the Watch. No one could have foreseen the staggering response.

    Biggest. Ever.

    A recent issue of the American Heart Journal illustrates the power of Apple’s brand and the simplicity of its approach. Based on the Journal’s reporting, the Apple Heart Study enrolled a massive 419,093 participants, making it the largest investigation of its kind ever fielded. To put this into perspective, a large-scale Swedish study also investigating arrhythmia screening fielded just 25,000 participants.   

    The sheer mass of the study was important to researchers, as bigger is generally better when it comes to investigations of this type — the larger the sample size, the narrower the margin of error for the study. Stanford Medicine researchers say that the study is in the final stages of data collection. Results should be available early next year.

    The fruits of Apple’s labor

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration used data from the study as an important catalyst for Apple. The agency announced in September that it had cleared two mobile medical apps designed for use with the Apple Watch.

    One app “analyzes pulse rate data to identify irregular heart rhythms suggestive of atrial fibrillation and notify the user,” and will be available on all versions of the Apple Watch. The second app creates an electrocardiogram (ECG) to monitor the heart “to detect the presence of atrial fibrillation and regular heart rhythm,” and will work with the Apple Watch Series 4.

    It’s important to note that neither of these apps is intended to replace a visit to the doctor, but merely to provide a notification that will act as a starting point for a discussion with a physician. 

    With the blessing of the FDA, the company activated the Watch’s heart monitoring and notification features through the release of WatchOS version 5.1.2.

    A massive opportunity

    Apple has made a number of moves that show its growing interest in the healthcare field. Apple was one of nine companies the FDA selected as part of a pilot program to pre-certify companies wanting to create software-based medical apps — like its heart monitoring and ECG apps — which recently led to the clearance of those apps.

    Other features in the Apple Watch 4 attest to Apple’s ambitions. The addition of a gyroscope and accelerometer gives the device the ability to detect when the wearer has slipped, tripped, or fallen. Reports from earlier this year also indicate that Apple is looking to develop a custom processor to collect and analyze data from its health, wellness, and fitness sensors.

    As investors focus on slowing iPhone sales and look to other products and services to generate growth, Apple’s growing interest in healthcare could provide a massive and lucrative opportunity.
