Dimension Data and Cisco first introduced its Connected Conversation effort in 2015, using a mixture of sensors, CCTV, biometrics and wi-fi to proactively detect poachers early, in a remote area in the north-west of the country where there is very limited electronic communication available. The aim of the initiative is to track people instead of animals, collecting data on those who enter the perimeter and sending park rangers alerts when unusual activity is spotted. White rhinos are currently near threatened, while black rhinos are classified as endangered, with little more than 5,000 of the latter … [Read more...] about Anti-poaching technology to expand globally in bid to save wildlife
A Plymouth man has recalled the two separate incidents where he claims he saw a big cat, after reading about the sightings in Harrowbarrow and Callington. Steve Swatton, 63, said big cats are in Plymouth as he has seen a large fawn cat and a large black cat on the outskirts of the city, in 2004 and 2016, respectively. Mr Swatton said he "feels sorry" for the people who speak out about big cat sightings in Devon and Cornwall, as they are rarely believed and end up being "ridiculed". Last week, Cornwall Live reported about the village of Harrowbarrow being stalked by a suspected puma or panther. James Stephenson told of how the animal attacked his Labrador Marley and later ran at him in his garden, as it emerged that several cats have gone missing from the village near Callington. There was also a sighting in Praa Sands, in which Becky Abrey captured the black cat on video. Mr Swatton said: "There’s loads of them around, I feel sorry for people that do get trouble … [Read more...] about Big cats are real and they’re in Plymouth, says local man
Nate Davis USA TODAY Published 6:11 AM EDT Apr 5, 2019 The New York Jets unveiled their new uniforms Thursday night, Nike's latest disappointing collaboration with an NFL team seeking to modernize its image. Anybody who's an Air Jordan aficionado — I'm one — will tell you, despite the footwear and apparel giant's many classics from years gone by, the new looks and reboots leave something to be desired with common frequency. Jets brass bragged that their overhaul — if you can even call it that — was five years in the making. This vast planning and creative effort amounted to a slightly modified logo, different font for the numbers and a new shade of green — "Gotham Green" (whoa!!) — hitched to "Spotlight White" and "Stealth Black," which are pretentious names for ... white and black. Oh, "New York" has also been added to the jersey of a team that's headquartered and plays its home games ... in New Jersey. … [Read more...] about NFL uniforms ranked 1-32: How does New York Jets’ new jerseys rate?
