Sir Jony Ive Leaves Apple to Start His Own Design Firm

first_img iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro Have More Cameras, More ProblemsApple Arcade Launches Next Week Sir Jony Ive is leaving Apple later this year to form his own design firm.But while you can take the man out of Cupertino, you can’t take Cupertino out of the man: Apple will be among Ive’s primary clients, according to a news release.“Jony is a singular figure in the design world and his role in Apple’s revival cannot be overstated,” CEO Tim Cook said in a statement, citing the Brit’s work on 1998’s “groundbreaking” iMac, the popular iPhone, and Apple Park corporate HQ.Born and raised in London, Ive studied design at the University of Northumbria at Newcastle. He formally joined Apple in 1992.Lack of early commercial success prompted Ive to nearly quit on multiple occasions. Steve Jobs’ impending return and the promise of a revitalized company, however, convinced him to stay.Ive became Apple’s senior vice president of industrial design in 1997—his first assignment to develop the all-in-one iMac, which paved the way for other iDevices (pod, phone, and pad).In 2013, he was named Senior Vice President of Design, and two years later was promoted to chief design officer (CDO).“After nearly 30 years and countless projects, I am most proud of the lasting work we have done to create a design team, process, and culture at Apple that is without peer,” Ive said. “Today it is stronger, more vibrant, and more talented than at any point in Apple’s history.”In his wake, Ive leaves no immediate successor. Instead, design team leaders Evans Hankey (vice president of Industrial Design) and Alan Dye (vice president of Human Interface Design) will report to Chief Operating Officer Jeff Williams, who led the development of Apple Watch.“The team will certainly thrive under the excellent leadership of Evans, Alan and, Jeff, who have been among my closest collaborators,” Ive continued. “I have the utmost confidence in my designer colleagues at Apple, who remain my closest friends, and I look forward to working with them for many years to come.”Ive’s new creative business, called LoveFrom, will launch fully in 2020. Details are scant, but the Financial Times reported that longtime friend and fellow Apple designer Marc Newson will join the firm.“Apple will continue to benefit from Jony’s talents by working directly with him on exclusive projects, and through the ongoing work of the brilliant and passionate design team he has built,” Cook said. “After so many years working closely together, I’m happy that our relationship continues to evolve and I look forward to working with Jony long into the future.”More on’s New Mac Pro Design Kind of Freaks Us OutiTunes Dies, Splits Into Three New Apple AppsApple TV Gets Real Video Game Controllers Stay on targetlast_img read more

Researchers Uncover Most Powerful Electric Eel Ever

first_img At least three different species of electric eel live in the Amazon basin.Distributed across swamps, streams, creeks, and rivers over northern South America, the knifefish has long (for more than 250 years) been classified as one species.A new analysis of 107 fish collected in Brazil, French Guiana, Guyana, and Suriname, however, suggest otherwise.Electric eels, which send electricity pulsing through the water to stun their prey, sound like something out of a comic book. But they are real—and they are multiplying.Researchers at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History discovered that electric eels in the Amazon belong to three different species that evolved from a shared ancestor millions of years ago.The identification of two new species—one of which can generate a greater electrical discharge than any other known animal—highlights just how much of the Amazon rainforest is left to uncover.“These fish grow to be seven to eight feet long. They’re really conspicuous,” study leader C. David de Santana said in a statement. “If you can discover a new eight-foot-long fish after 250 years of scientific exploration, can you imagine what remains to be discovered in that region?”While some 250 species of electricity-generating fish live in South America, electric eels (technically fish with a serpentine aesthetic) are the only ones that use their power to hunt and defend. They also rely on it to navigate and communicate.Electric eels inspired the design of the first battery in 1799, according to the Smithsonian, and have proved useful for improving technology and treating disease.Studying the specimens he’d collected over the last six years, de Santana found that each genetic group featured subtle physical differences: unique skull shapes, defining characteristics on the pectoral fins, and a distinctive arrangement of pores on the bodies. Each has its own geographic distribution, too.This previously overlooked diversity, de Santana said, creates new opportunities to investigate how animals generate high-voltage electricity by sequencing and comparing their genomes.Read the team’s full findings, published this week by the journal Nature Communications.More on Ness Monster Could Be a Giant Eel, Scientists Say‘Mysterious’ Sea Creature Found Buried at Washington Beach RescuedMonk Seal With Eel Stuck Up Its Nose Caught on Camera Florida Frogs Find Shelter From Storm in Wind ChimesGay Penguins Adopt Egg After Trying to Hatch Rocks Stay on targetlast_img read more

Portland works to keep homeless warm

first_imgDespite a brutal cold snap, record snowfall and four dead from exposure in Portland, some homeless people are still sleeping out on the streets, in parking garages or in wooded areas.Police, firefighters, church volunteers and outreach teams from nonprofit organizations have leapt into action, making rounds to check on dozens of campers who can’t be convinced to come inside.One Portland police officer checked every 30 minutes on a woman who chose a downtown street instead of a shelter as the temperature dipped into the 20s early Wednesday.“We’re asking the public to look out for people like this,” said Jessica Morkert-Shibley, a Multnomah County spokeswoman. Call 911 if it’s a medical crisis or the non-emergency line (503-823-3333) if someone needs warm clothing.Responders are making it their first priority to offer rides to shelters, but if the offer is declined, they shift to handing out blankets, hats, gloves, tarps and tents.last_img read more

The Vancouver Clinic is offering a discounted price of $335 through the end of June. The test is not covered by insurance.Patients who elect to undergo the screening will receive a kit in the mail and will return a saliva sample, which ActX will check for 600,000 genetic markers. The results are sent to the physician and patient and are also integrated into The Vancouver Clinic’s electronic health record.last_img read more

Food cart presence near Turtle Place builds slowly

first_imgclick to enlarge Alyssa Diltz was headed to her usual lunch spot in downtown Vancouver when she caught sight of the colorful Vida Flare.Parked on the broad sidewalk of C-Tran’s downtown bus terminus, Turtle Place, the food cart served up cuisine from the southwestern United States and Mexico. Diltz, 30, made a detour; she wanted to try something new.“It’s been exciting to see the growth (in food options),” said Diltz, a Portland resident who works in downtown Vancouver for a creative agency.That sentiment is driving organizations to try to broaden downtown’s menu of food carts, restaurants and bars. One area of downtown, along Seventh Street, near Main Street, is trying to bring two food cart pods about a block from each other — one at Columbia Food Park and the other at Turtle Place.Both are hoping to gain momentum soon but have hit some snags.Although C-Tran approved food carts and trucks at Turtle Place in May, the first did not arrive until July 6. Vida Flare’s arrival Friday was just the second time a food cart has been at the terminus. The reason, according to C-Tran’s Development and Public Affairs Director Scott Patterson, is two-fold.First, the agency is prioritizing the health of its bus operations at Turtle Place, which debuted in 2017. Bus riders are receptive to food carts so far, but the businesses create some trash that C-Tran is determined to clean up.last_img read more

Fuming Maurizio Sarri cant understand Chelseas loss

first_imgAfter the disaster that was Chelsea’s painful loss at Bournemouth, manager Maurizio Sarri was fuming and very disappointed after the defeat.Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri learned this Wednesday that he made the stupidest mistake of his career by leaving Napoli, the 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth won Wednesday may have been the beginning of the end for him at the Blues.The constant disagreements with star Eden Hazard was part of the problem, as the Belgian winger offered the worst version of his game that anybody can remember and left the whole squad hanging out to dry.But add that to the bad decision of bringing striker Gonzalo Higuain to the club during a low point of his career, and you get a result like the one from this midweek fixture against the Cherries.The Blues’ squad that we all enjoyed at the start of the season is nothing but a long lost memory of the squad that we saw yesterday, Sarri’s face was the vivid representation of a manager who has completely run out of ideas and doesn’t know how to wake up his players at this stage of the season.The constant public outing of his players doesn’t help one bit, they have already proved that they hate being exposed and Sarri regretted doing so this Wednesday.Full-time: Bournemouth 4-0 Chelsea.#BOUCHE— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) January 30, 2019“It’s very difficult to have an idea of the performance. We played very well in the first half,” he said after the loss at Bournemouth via Four Four Two.“In the second half we conceded the goal after two minutes and stopped to play. In the offensive phase, we played not as a team, but as individual players and did not defend. It’s hard to understand why.”“We had 43 minutes still to play, so we could solve the problem. But not with that kind of reaction. So it’s very difficult for me to understand why.”“I wanted to try to understand after the match. I spoke with the players immediately after the match, but it’s very difficult also for them to say why. So I have to try again tomorrow [Thursday] because I need to understand why, because I need to solve this problem.”“Maybe we are not in the top four of the Premier League at the moment, but we are competitive.”“We cannot lose 4-0 against Bournemouth. I want to respect Bournemouth, and you know I like very much the coach Eddie [Howe], but it’s impossible to lose 4-0 here.”“Maybe it’s my fault, maybe I’m not able to motivate them,” he added.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“But the team is very strong, it is also able to win without the coach.”“I feel frustrated, not under pressure. I don’t see… I didn’t see the signal of my work. So I am frustrated.”Ouch – Maurizio Sarri isn’t happy.#BOUCHE— BBC Sport (@BBCSport) January 30, 2019After the match ended and Maurizio Sarri was able to speak directly with all his players, the manager reportedly had a very intense talk with everybody but the rest of the technical staff for an hour inside the dressing room at the Cherries’ stadium.There is still no information about what was said in that meeting, but the people who saw the manager could easily realize that the Italian manager is going through his worst moment at the club and there is no way of knowing what he will decide by the end of the season.There is a big chance that Sarri is thinking about the reasons he decided to leave Napoli right about now, a place where he literally had it all and was very comfortable with a squad that remained competitive in Serie A despite not winning many titles.The man now knows that coming to the Premier League may have been a very exciting challenge at the time, but perhaps he didn’t imagine it would be this complicated to keep the squad afloat.🇮🇹 Maurizio Sarri locked himself in the dressing room with his @ChelseaFC players after the 4-0 loss to @AFCBournemouth.😳 He kicked his coaches out of the dressing room including Gianfranco Zola.⏰ He was in there with his players for almost an hour.📝 @MichelleOwen7— SPORF (@Sporf) January 30, 2019What type of motivation does Maurizio Sarri need for his players for the rest of the season?
