ONE LOVE MY PLAN

One Love My Plan - Wannaapps.com
Here’s a tool that could help avoid dating violence or abusive relationships. Scientists have developed a smartphone app that warns young women of a dangerous partner by helping them examine their relationships and potential behavioural red flags. 

In an effort to arm young women with safety information, researchers developed the ‘One Love My Plan’ app, an interactive tool that helps collegeage women in abusive relationships clarify their priorities and customize personal safety plans. “Women between the ages of 18 and 24 are at the highest risk for dating violence. However, these women are less likely than older adults to seek formal safety resources and instead look to peers or technology for help and advice,” the app’s developers said. 

“At some point, almost everyone knows someone in an unhealthy relationship,” said Tina Bloom, an assistant professor at the University of Missouri’s Sinclair School of Nursing. “The purpose of the My Plan app is to quickly and confidentially provide women and concerned friends with information and available resources. Our goal is not to replace existing services, but to better connect students with them,” said Bloom. 

To ensure that young women would find the app helpful, Bloom and her colleagues conducted focus groups with college-age women who identified themselves as survivors of abusive relationships. 

“The My plan app gives students tools to examine their relationships, set priorities and access resources when they are ready,” said Bloom. She added that the app has features such as information on healthy relationship dynamics, relationship violence myths and behavioural red flags.

SAMSUNG POWER SLEEP

THIS APP USES YOUR PHONE FOR R&D WHILE YOU SLEEP

A new app that allows you to ‘donate’ the processing power of your mobile phone for scientific research while you sleep has been developed. Mobile phones lie dormant when users are asleep, which means that millions of powerful processors are going unused for hours at a time. 

The University of Vienna’s faculty of life sciences and Samsung Austria teamed up to tap the potential of all that unused processing power. They developed the ‘Power Sleep’ app which provides users with a simple alarm clock function. When the alarm has been set and the user’s mobile phone is plugged in, fully charged and connected to a Wi-Fi network, the app begins to process data sent from the Similarity Matrix of Proteins (SIMAP) database. 

The research is focused on deciphering protein sequences in order to help with medical advancements in disciplines such as genetics and heredity, biochemistry, molecular biology and cancer research, Gizmag reported. 

“In order to fight diseases like cancer and Alzheimers, we need to know how proteins are arranged,”said Thomas Rattei, professor of bioinformatics at the University of Vienna. “This requires trials that need a tremendous amount of processing power. Power Sleep is a bridge between science and society. It promotes not only our research, but allows people in Austria to become part of the project and, at the same time, to do good even while they are sleeping,” Rattei said. Power Sleep is connected to the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing, a network that links around 60,000 PCs worldwide. AGENCIES

ENTERTAINMENT AWARD - YOUTUBE

YouTube has had to reinvent itself somewhat ever since it parted with Apple as a native iOS app. This has actually served the video service very well; with an updated app that more closely resembles the desktop version, as well as a polished iOS 7-inspired update that launched not only before any other app, but the iOS as well.

The highlight has to be the new background playback that allows users to continue watching a video while searching for another. This shows that YouTube knows its users, and how listening to music and using the app as a party playlist is a very common function these days. Put simply, the new app looks fantastic. Making the most of the huge and endlessly growing library of user content has never been easier, or more entertaining.
