GoPro Hero4 specs on the horizon

For adrenaline junkies across the world the GoPro Hero3 is the action cam of choice, but we could soon see them hankering after the GoPro Hero4.

GoPro's chip supplier has just released its new model, giving us a taste of what's to come in the Hero4. And while the GoPro Hero3 isn't exactly old, and is certainly no slouch, the specs of the new chip show welcome upgrades all round.

The chip at the heart of the Hero3 is made by Ambarella, and its new A9 4K Ultra HD Camera SoC is likely to be the brains inside the Hero4.

To recap, the current top-level Hero3 Black Edition will do 4K but up to a maximum of 15 frames per second (fps), 1080p at 60fps and 720p at 120fps with 12MP stills.

The new chip, destined for "mirrorless, sports, and digital still cameras" has a 4K Ultra HD H.264 encoder, shoots 1080p at 120fps and 720p at 240fps, 700MP overmulti-exposure HDR, Wi-Fi and electronic image stabilisation. That's a doubling of frame rates, plus a lot of incremental improvements that should make the GoPro Hero4's performance even closer to professional camcorders.

The Ambaralla chip will also cope with a maximum 32MP resolution, though it's unlikely that the GoPro 4 would sport a sensor with such a high pixel count.

There's no word from GoPro about a Hero4 yet, but we're hoping it turns up in time for a spot of summer adventuring.

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) didn't have much to say Thursday in response to obamacare-house-republicans_n_3950901.html">House Republicans fuming at him for conceding that the Democratic-controlled Senate doesn't have the votes to repeal Obamacare and leaving the battle -- and all its political perils -- for House conservatives to fight.

In fact, Cruz, a tea party favorite who has championed an Obamacare repeal, went further and said even some Senate Republicans don't support the latest push for defunding President Barack Obama's signature health care law. He also said a full repeal of Obamacare doesn't have a chance until at least after the 2014 elections.

"Right now, [Senate Majority Leader] Harry Reid has 54 Democrats and they presumably are going to stand with him ... and a number of Senate Republicans have expressed that they may support the Democrats here," Cruz told a couple of reporters, just after his remarks at an event hosted by the National Auto Dealers Association.

"I think it is likely that it will take another election for a full repeal," he said.

During his NADA speech, Cruz addressed the latest House GOP strategy -- this will be the 42nd repeal vote -- to sink the Affordable Care Act. House Republican leaders on Friday will bring up a measure to permanently defund the law and tie it to a must-pass resolution that keeps the government running.

Cruz hailed House Republican leaders for the strategy, and said it is a "testament" to their commitment to bring down Obamacare. Still, he doubled down on what he said Wednesday: Efforts to sink the law aren't going anywhere in the Senate, or as long as Obama is in the White House.

"We know with an absolute certainty that President Obama and Harry Reid are going to push back, are going to fight to defend Obamacare," Cruz said, emphasizing that the only way repeal can happen is through a sustained grassroots effort. "It's going to depend on making the case to the American people."

House Republican leaders have been counting on Cruz and other Senate conservatives to lead on the issue in their chamber. Particularly after being berated by Cruz on the need to keep a government shutdown on the table in the Obamacare fight, House conservatives are not happy with Cruz appearing to throw up "a white flag" now, as one lawmaker put it. Still, Cruz made the case Wednesday that people need to keep fighting on the issue.

"You lose 100 percent of the battles that you start out by surrendering," Cruz said.

He initially ignored questions by The Huffington Post about his response to House Republicans who say he's blown GOP messaging on the issue and unfairly punted the fight into their court. He finally bit, saying they are the ones who will ultimately decide how the debate carries on.

"I salute the House Republicans for their fight on this," he said, adding later, "the House of Representatives, where Republicans have the majority -- the House has to drive this process."

UPDATE: House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) pushed back on the idea that Cruz and other Senate conservatives are off the hook once the House passes the Obamacare repeal bill.

"We'll deliver a big victory in the House tomorrow. Then this fight will move over to the Senate -- where it belongs," Boehner said during his weekly briefing. "I expect my Senate colleagues to be up for the battle."

GRI-report-300x199.jpg">By Elaine Cohen

Those of you who have been following my Twitter account may have noticed my G4 Tip of the Day (using the Twitter hashtag: #UG4) published over the last month or so. Here, in a convenient, one post format, is a recap of all the 31 tips in this "G4 on Twitter" month. (I had to shorten a few to make them tweetable, below are the full versions). But, before you go to the tips, here's something else I wanted to mention:

Understanding G4 can help you navigate G4 with relative ease. I'd be happy to spend a day with you talking about it and sharing my insights, working approaches and recommendations. In fact, that day is October 22, in London, when I will be conducting the first Understanding G4 Master Class, an intensive G4 day, in which I walk a small group through the paces of G4.

  1. You can't write a G4 report with a G3 mindset. Make the shift to G4. It's a different paradigm.
  2. G4 recommends including at least 3 years of data when responding to indicators (Implementation Manual, page 71).
  3. "Accountability strengthens trust between the organization and its stakeholders. Trust, in turn, fortifies report credibility." (Implementation Manual, page 10)
  4. Specific Standard Disclosure G4-EN2 includes a methodology to calculate the percentage of recycled input materials.
  5. Total energy consumption in G4 should be reported in joules or multiples.
  6. G4-33 requires reporting of whether senior executives are involved in seeking assurance for the organization's sustainability report.
  7. G4-52 is a new disclosure required at "In Accordance" Comprehensive Level and requires a description of the process for determining remuneration.
  8. Remember that each word is important in a G4 Sustainability Report. Somewhere, there is a stakeholder who might read it.
  9. G4 reports may be shorter than G3 reports. Or longer. Or the same length. Your materiality process will decide.
  10. Did your Board read your Sustainability Report? Ever? G4-48 asks you to spill the beans (In Accordance, Comprehensive Level).
  11. Only go for In Accordance G4 Reporting at Comprehensive Level if you have very robust governance disclosures.
  12. G4 reporting is not a race and not a competition. Going slow, and doing it with integrity, is more important.
  13. Sustainability reports published after 31 December 2015 should be prepared in accordance with the G4 Guidelines.
  14. G4-1 disclosure - CEO statement - includes reference to "key events, achievements, and failures during the reporting period."
  15. It is possible, but not recommended, to produce a G4 Sustainability Report with one material issue.
  16. Readers of G4 Sustainability Reports must know what to expect. More forest. Less trees.
  17. In a G4 Sustainability Report, material issues should smack you in the face. If they don't, it's not G4.
  18. G4 does not require companies to list the awards they have received. But, go for it anyway.
  19. G4-12 is a simple disclosure: Describe the organization's supply chain. Piece of cake? Maybe not.
  20. G4-EN18 requires GHG emissions intensity ratio. Pick your normalization factor carefully and be consistent.
  21. Read my book, Understanding G4, before you even start thinking about writing a G4 Sustainability Report.
  22. Engage your Top Team in the selection of material issues for your G4 Report. The CEO must sign off.
  23. G4 Reporting is about ownership and accountability, not about how many boxes you can tick.
  24. Probably best not to select more than 200 Material Aspects for your G4 report. Otherwise it will take you more than a year to write it. Less is more.
  25. Transition from G3 to G4 with consistency. But remember the objective is G4, not G3 plus new bits.
  26. Go for CORE unless you have a really good reason to go COMPREHENSIVE with your first G4 Sustainability Report.
  27. Embedding good reporting process is the key to G4. Bluffing doesn't work all that well.
  28. Don't try to be In Accordance with G4 if you can't be. Better to "refer" to G4 and transition when the time is right.
  29. Don't expect your stakeholders to praise you for your G4 report. Acknowledgement is also good.
  30. A G4 report is hard work. Don't be deceived by it's slick looks. You have to invest.
  31. This is the last G4 Tip for this month. It's a short tip. Read all the G4 Tips again and then, just do it!

Good luck with your G4 Reporting. With so many useful free tips, you have absolutely nothing to fear :-)

See you in London in October?

fergie-baby">Fergie baby pics have arrived. On Sept. 17, Fergie and her husband, Josh Duhamel, shared the very first photos of their son, Axl Jack. According to MSN, the almost 3-year-old made his debut on Facebook. Fergie and Josh posted some of the very first photos that they took of their new son, sharing their baby joy with all of their fans -- and baby Axl did not disappoint.

Wrapped in a hospital blanket, Axl slept comfortably as his parents snapped newborn photos of him. They didn't share the pictures on his Aug. 29 birthday, but they did choose to share the photos today -- not landing a deal with a magazine or what have you.

The new Fergie baby pics are making their rounds on the Internet today. Naturally the little guy is quite adorable -- given his genes, that's not surprising at all. He looks so sweet and serene and it seems more than obvious that his mom and dad are just so in love with him.

Fergie and Josh couldn't wait to become parents and they were both really excited to have a baby boy. They named their son after Axl Rose from Guns 'N Roses but whether or not he follows in the rocker's shoes remains to be seen. Chances are he has a great set of pipes -- most babies do -- but it will be a couple of years before mom and dad discover their baby's talent (or lack there of).

Check out Fergie baby pics here.

IRVING - Rookie safety J.J. Wilcox will get his first NFL start Sunday against St. Louis in place of veteran Will Allen, Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said Friday evening on KRLD-FM 105.3.

Wilcox has received a lot of the first-team repetitions the last two days in practice in place of Allen, who started the first two games.

Wilcox, the third-round pick out of Georgia Southern, only played safety his last season in college. Wilcox showed promise in training camp, though he missed about two weeks after his mother died in Georgia.

The Cowboys made Allen, who is in his 10 th season, one of their two off-season free agent signings. He struggled at times in pass coverage the first two games.

Wilcox was asked Friday about his increased role this week.

"What, on special teams?" he said, smiling.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Friday that Wilcox "has improved a great deal" since training camp. Wilcox said he's learned a lot from Allen.

"He's probably been the best mentor I've had," Wilcox said. "He took me under his wings, no hesitation. He's a great, wonderful person."


A big topic this week has been the Cowboys' slow start in the running game and their lack of commitment to the run. At the forefront of the discussion has been starting back DeMarco Murray, who had only 12 carries for 25 yards Sunday against Kansas City. But Murray said Friday he's not worried about the lack of touches. "I'm definitely not frustrated," Murray said. "I'm fine. I'm fine." ... DE DeMarcus Ware was limited in practice all week after suffering a neck stinger Sunday against Kansas City but will play against St. Louis on Sunday. ... Starting CB Morris Claiborne, who was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday while managing his dislocated left shoulder injury, fully participated in practice Friday and is expected to play against the Rams. ... LB Ernie Sims has been ruled out for Sunday's game against St. Louis. He also didn't play last week at Kansas City because of a groin injury.

Two touchdown passes from Tom Brady to Kenbrell Thompkins has the Tampa Bay Buccaneers trailing the new England Patriots 17-3 at halftime in Foxborough.

The Bucs took a 3-0 lead on a Ryan Lindell field goal midway through the first quarter. Unfortunately for the Bucs, Lindell has missed another routine field goal beforehand, bringing into question his future with the team.

The Buccaneers defense stood firm in the first quarter but began to unravel in the second especially in pass coverage.

Brady hit Thompkins for a 16 yard score midway through the second in which the Bucs have defensive lineman Adrian Clayborn covering Thompkins.

Brady would hit Thompkins again for a 5 yard score, that was set up on a pass interference call on rookie corner Johnthan Banks.

It got worse for the Bucs as Josh Freeman was picked off by former teammate Aqib Talib with 11 seconds left in the half which set up a Stephen Gostkowski field goal.

To be fair, the Bucs are playing much better than the scoreline indicates. Mike Sullivan has opened up the offense this week, with different formations and personnel being used.

Freeman is 9 of 20 for 124 yards but his receivers stone hands have not aided the Bucs quarterback. The usually steady Vincent Jackson has dropped a handful of easy passes, while Timothy Wright, promoted from the practice squad for todays game, dropped what would have been a touchdown pass.

Doug Martin has 13 carries for 50 yards as he continues from where he left off last week.

The Bucs rush defense has been great as they have got to Brady all game long. Clayborn has himself a sack, while Mark Barron and Lavonte David each have a half sack. Even when the Bucs haven't hit Brady they've forced him to move in the pocket with regularity.

The Buccaneers have been inside the Patriots 40 yard line three times, but have only come away with the one field goal, showing the inconsistency on offense that has bothered them so far this season.

Mike Williams has four catches for 61 yards but he left the game in the second quarter and hasn't been back on the field since.

There's little doubt that a sea change is under way in how primary care medicine is organized and practiced in this country.

That doesn't necessarily mean there is a change in the quality of care - some even say the new collaborative model is better.

But the days of the sole practitioner following a patient through most of an adult lifetime and making rounds in the hospital are fading.

The factors are well-documented. A more mobile society puts a lower value on cradle-to-grave care by the same family doctor. Technology has gotten more costly, as has malpractice insurance, but incomes have not risen proportionally. Insurance payments reward volume, not spending more time with fewer patients. And the costs and red tape of dealing with the welter of plans and pre-authorizations take away from the time a family physician can spend with patients taking case histories and reviewing the effectiveness of various medicines and therapies.

Also, as Medicaid expanded access by poor people to preventive care, clinics like Kaiser Permanente in California sprang up to supplant the care the poor had been relying on from county public health departments. Kaiser also took on company group plans under an HMO model and added nutrition, weight-control, smoking cessation and a host of other wellness programs to help patients stay healthier in between visits to the doctor.


Now, as the Affordable Care Act expands health coverage to millions of working poor and people with prior medical conditions who previously have been denied policies, the pressure to improve the efficiency of primary care will increase. The gap in primary care providers is already wide in many rural areas and poor neighborhoods, and experts see it only getting wider after Obamacare begins Jan. 1.

The law does provide incentives to train not only more primary care physicians but also nurse practitioners and physicians' assistants, but ramping up will take time.

The Flagstaff region, according to a federal study, is not one of those areas underserved by primary care practitioners. Although private family practices are dwindling, the gap is being filled in part by North Country Healthcare, which operates a large Flagstaff clinic and more than a dozen others throughout northern Arizona. The physicians who work there are part of a nationwide trend that has seen the percentage of doctors working for clinics and hospitals go from 43 percent in 2000 to 61 percent today.

But the patient mix at North Country is now 25 percent uninsured after cutbacks in state health insurance for poor, single adults. That has strained North Country's finances, and even when uninsured patients are billed for primary care on a sliding payment scale, there are few specialty procedures that they can afford if they need a referral.


It's why many wind up going to an emergency room - the hospital is bound by law to treat their acute appendicitis or stress fracture, even if the care goes unpaid for. North Country will see not only more Medicaid patients under Obamacare but also more insured patients, and the challenge will be to respond to higher patient loads with more staffing as more revenues come in. So this fall, North Country is focusing on signing up the uninsured - both from among its patient base and others - for Obamacare, which administrators support as a way to improve overall community health, despite the inevitable start-up glitches.

A new arrangement in family medicine has hospitals setting up primary care practices of their own in advance of Obamacare as a way to give newly insured patients a health care "home."

Flagstaff Medical Center has begun Team Health with three physicians and four nurse practitioners. The hospital already employs physicians - known as hospitalists - to care for patients, leaving Team Health to focus on office visits and coordinate referrals to specialists and hospital admissions and discharges through so-called "navigators," who also coordinate care with the hospital's outpatient programs.

That kind of vertical integration makes sense as the insured patient volume at the primary care level - the so-called "gatekeeper" function in Obamacare - gets set to rise dramatically. It also makes sense financially as Obamacare sets penalties for hospital readmissions that review teams find are not justified - primary care that is focused on prevention is a key way to keep patients out of hospitals.


But hospital-employed physicians also can bill Medicare at higher rates than private physicians to account for higher overhead, a trend that one congressional study estimates costs an extra billion dollars a year.

And as the New York Times has reported, private physicians in some cities like Boise, Idaho, have seen the hospital-owned primary practices become so dominant that they control referrals to specialists and diagnostic procedures and give patients fewer choices. Team Health administrators say their family practice is aimed primarily at better coordination of FMC services for patients of all types, not making a profit for the hospital.

We will take them at their word but urge them to be aware that FMC is already the only choice in the region for many ill patients and to protect a niche in the community for private family doctors, too.

Over 41,000 runners started Sunday's BUPA Great North Run, Newcastle to South Shields, among them six members of Springwell Running Club.

Ethiopia's Kenenisa Bekele held off a late surge from Britain's Mo Farah to win by the narrowest margin one second in 1:00:09.

kenya's Priscah Jeptoo came close to breaking the course record as she ran the third-fastest time in women's half-marathon history crossing the line in 1:05:45 only five seconds slower than Paula Radcliffe's record.

Alan McKeeman was the first Springwell Runner home in a PB time of 1:34:24 followed by Patrick Higgins 1:39:21, Andy Deal 1:41:55, Mervyn Thompson 1:49:00.

Bryan Edgar paced his wife Margaret to a PB time of 2:07:37.

With Andy, Mervyn and Kay away this weekend Gary Watton took control and welcomed 48 runners to Saturday's Portrush Parkrun.

The low tide left plenty of firm sand with a tail wind helping the runners on the outward journey but they had to battle against the head wind on the homeward journey.

Springwell Jim Breen (21:05 PB) and Karen McLaughlin (21:21) were the first male and female runners home.

Springwell Times: David Irwin 21:17 (PB), Ailbhe Kendall 22:25, Gary Kendall 22:27, Robert Workman 23:07, Catherine Bell-Allen 24:06 (PB), Amy Fountain 26:47, Rozzy Skuce 27:01, Ursula Harper 29:26, Jack Kendall 33:33, Marylen King 34:31, Mike Fountain 37:42, Stephen & Abi Smyth 40:28, Victoria & Hannah Smyth 42:45.

Springwell Runners had a few Parkrun tourists this weekend. Gerry O'Doherty travelled to the home of the Parkrun, Bushy Park completing the 5K course in 19:49.

Kay Hack was at the Colchester Castle Parkrun running 25:04. Alistair Shaw and Kenny Bacon ran the Waterworks Parkrun, Alistair in 19:02 and Kenny in 29:22.

Dodgers vs. Padres TV schedule, & starting pitching matchups

The Dodgers are 9-7 against the Padres this season, including 4-3 at Petco Park.

The Dodgers have already captured the National League West, so the weekend series against the Padres in San Diego has less urgency than previously expected. Here is a look at the television schedule and starting pitchers lined up for this weekend at Petco Park (all times PT).

Friday, 7:10 p.m. (Prime Ticket)

Edinson Volquez gets his first start against his old team in the series opener. Volquez led the National League with 105 walks in 2012 and, despite pitching just 159 innings in 2013, leads the NL this year with 105 earned runs allowed. Since returning the Padres in late August, left-hander Robbie Erlin has allowed just five total runs in three starts.

Saturday, 5:40 p.m. (Prime Ticket)

Clayton Kershaw has lost all three starts against the Padres this season and has allowed five home runs in 17⅓ innings against San Diego. Against every other team, Kershaw has allowed six home runs in 205⅔ innings. Burch Smith struck out 10 Braves on Sunday in seven scoreless innings in just his fifth major league start.

Sunday, 1:10 p.m. (Prime Ticket)

Since breaking his collarbone in San Diego on April 11, Zack Greinke has allowed two runs in 15 innings in two starts against the Padres, both wins. Andrew Cashner has lasted seven or more innings in each of his last six starts, with a 1.41 ERA during that span, including 38 strikeouts and seven walks in 44⅔ innings.
