Did that scene in “Black Panther” or “Stranger Things” wow you so much that
you wanted to stop everything and instantly rewatch it? A new feature being
tested by Netflix could give viewers the ability to do exactly that.

2.) SMS to RCS. A New Messaging Standard. What it is and why you might want
it.
A lot of people have become bored with SMS messaging, and the tech industry
is very aware of it. While services such as Apple’s iMessage, Facebook
Messenger, and WhatsApp allow you to add photos, GIFs and videos to your
messages, they are not universal solutions.

3.) What is the Fast Metabolism Diet and How Does it Help with Weight Loss?
Essentially, the Fast Metabolism Diet is a 28-day eating plan that aims to
speed up your metabolism by consuming specific foods in a certain time,
resulting in weight loss. The diet, developed by a celebrity nutritionist
and wellness consultant Haylie Pomroy, claims that eating the certain foods
at the right time can ‘trick’ your metabolism into speeding up, helping you
lose up to up to 20 pounds (9 kilos) in just 28 days.

3.) For the first year ever, Pew Research Study reveals more people now turn
to social media for news than actual newspapers.
It’s a sign of the times. Pew also found that other sources of news,
including television, radio and news websites still outrank social media.

4.) Why businesses are relying on Facebook Groups to build engaged
audiences.
At the beginning of 2018, Facebook switched up its algorithm in an attempt
to “fix” the News Feed by promoting more posts from family and friends and
demoting content from businesses, brands and media. The move actively
distanced brands from their followers on the platform by limiting exposure
to organic content posted by businesses. At first glance, the only solution
for brands was to invest more in their Facebook ad campaigns, but some
businesses have found an alternative to connect with their audience by
building vibrant Facebook Group communities.

5.) Instagram Strips Out Fake ‘Likes’ Tied to 3rd-Party Apps
Instagram has begun to remove inauthentic engagement with accounts that used
third-party apps to grow their follower count and engagement on the platform
– a practice that violates the app’s community guidelines and terms of use.

provides an overview of the Long Term Care and Nursing Home Information

3.) Hunger Among Senior Citizens is Serious Problem
The period of life known as “the golden years” is often more bleak than
bright for a lot of senior citizens in the United States. Nearly 5 million
seniors citizens currently deal with hunger in the U.S., according to
Feeding America, a nonprofit organization that focuses its efforts on hunger
relief.

4.) Perennials, Not Millennials, Will Trigger the Next Wave of Talent
Retention Efforts
Headlines in recent years have trumpeted workplace changes demanded by
millennials, from nap pods to flexible scheduling to student-loan repayment.
But there is another fundamental shift in workforce demographics. Older
workers – or “perennials,” as this cohort has sometimes been called – are
now the fastest-growing population of workers, with twice as many seniors as
teenagers currently employed in the US.

1.) Accessibility at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Japan
Tokyo, Japan is hosting the 2020 Summer Olympics. As usual, the Paralympics
will follow. It is expected that forty million people will travel to Japan
to watch the Olympics and Paralympics. As a result, Japan is examining
accessibility at the 2020 Summer Olympics. While Japan is accessible in some
places already, the country will be making improvements between now and
2020.

2.) People With Disabilities Face Significant Barriers in Education System,
Commission Finds
Ontario’s education system needs to modernize its approach to supporting
disabled students at every age level and do more to eliminate persistent
barriers they face in school, the province’s human rights commission said in
a statement.
http://bit.ly/2EEjWoc

3.) Research Shows 1 in 5 Museums Do Not Provide Online Access Information
and are Inadvertently Contributing to a “Disability Engagement Gap”
Museum websites are key tools for providing visitor access information, and
the absence of this contributes to the ‘disability engagement gap’; where
people with a disability are less likely to be regular or frequent visitors
of museums than those who are not disabled.

4.) Equal Access in Air Travel for the Blind. Raising Expectations from the
United States Department of Transportation
Air travel and the treatment of blind passengers by the airlines are not new
topics for the NFB and in the Braille Monitor. But recent events have the
topics squarely on the NFB Agenda as you will read in this article.

5.) What would a truly disabled-accessible city look like?
Most cities are utterly unfriendly to people with disabilities, but with
