With three out of four drivers believing hands-free technology is safe to use, Americans may be surprised to learn these popular new vehicle features may actually increase mental distraction, according to new research by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. This research can serve as guidance to manufacturers who increasingly market hands-free systems as safety features. The results, which build on the first phase of the Foundation’s research conducted last year, suggest developers can improve the safety of their products by making them less complicated, more accurate, and generally easier to use, a point AAA hopes to use in working with manufacturers to make hands-free technologies as safe as possible for consumers. While manufacturers continue their efforts to develop and refine systems that reduce distractions, AAA encourages drivers to minimize cognitive distraction by limiting the use of most voice-based technologies. Using instrumented test vehicles, heart-rate monitors, and other equipment designed to measure reaction times, Dr.
The accuracy of voice recognition software significantly influences the rate of distraction. Composing text messages and emails using in-vehicle technologies (category three) was more distracting than using these systems to listen to messages (category two).
The study also separately assesses Apple’s Siri (version iOS 7), using insight obtained from Apple about Siri’s functionality at the time the research was conducted. On the five-point scale, Toyota’s Entune system had the lowest cognitive distraction rating system (at 1.7), which is similar to listening to an audio book. AAA is calling for developers to address key factors to mental distraction including complexity, accuracy, and time on task with the goal of making systems that are no more demanding than listening to the radio or an audiobook.

September was Suicide Prevention Month with walks, radio talk shows featuring professionals, and TV specials.

Here are some guidelines that can help you make smart decisions that meet your budget and lifestyle. Choosing Tile – “Tiling your home can be a great home improvement to easily add value,” says Keesha Hargis, a home decor specialist. Easy to maintain, tile flooring tends to be very resistant to moisture, fading, and scratches.
Natural stone floors are beautiful and elegant, but they are not always ideal for families. Choosing Carpet – There is a vast selection of styles, colors, and fibers to choose from in today’s marketplace, but a simple checklist can help. Nylon fibers will hold up well to foot traffic, but may not offer the stain resistance a well-used room may need.
Flooring is a long-term investment, so consider factors like maintenance and usage before making a final decision. Hamden Democratic Party Chair Lewis Panzo announced that the Hamden Democratic Party will hold its next meeting Monday, Oct.
In orthopedics, it is often believed that when someone experiences leg pain, the source is usually “sciatica” originating from your back. Sciatica, defined as inflammation to the sciatica nerve, is often a result of a disc herniation between the last two vertebrae. In addition to nerve and disc origins, leg pain can also be referred from other structures, such as muscle or ligaments. Osteoarthritis of the hip joint itself can often refer pain into the front, inner, and occasional back of thigh, referring down as far as one’s knee.
Any of the above scenarios, or combination of these conditions, can contribute to leg pain symptoms. Michael Dow, MSPT, is founder and Clinical Director of Amity Physical Therapy, now with three offices in Woodbridge, Hamden, and Branford.

One big downfall about being short is that when you have other people standing around you, you can’t see, and Jesus had many people around him.
Zacchaeus had many things in his life that did not line up with Jesus’ teachings, but one thing he did know was, in that moment, he needed to see Jesus. It says in Luke 19:5-9 that Jesus called Zacchaeus by name, to get out of the tree, and that He must stay at his house today.

They pay special attention to the needs of pregnant women and mothers of newborns and address their concerns first. The good news for consumers is that it’s possible to design hands-free technologies that are less cognitively distracting, according to the research. David Strayer and researchers from the University of Utah evaluated and ranked common voice-activated interactions based on the level of cognitive distraction generated. Systems with low accuracy and reliability generated a high level (category three) of distraction. Listening to a natural or synthetic voice both rated as a category two level of distraction. Researchers used the same metrics to measure a broad range of tasks including using social media, sending texts, and updating calendars.
Joel Cooper with Precision Driving Research evaluated the two most common voice-based interactions in which drivers engage, changing radio stations and voice dialing, with voice-activated systems found in six different automakers’ vehicles. In comparison, the Chevrolet MyLink resulted in a high level of cognitive distraction (rating of 3.7). AAA also plans to use the findings to continue a dialogue with policy makers, safety advocates, and manufactures.
This study builds upon groundbreaking research conducted last year, which found that drivers can be dangerously distracted even if their eyes are on the road and their hands are on the wheel.

It’s in a small, rural town with little industry, and we’ve been told that the place would be worth $85,000 if it’s cleaned up, compared to $75,000 as-is. From a real estate person’s perspective, houses always sell better when they’re shined up and looking nice.

Tile allows you to create a variety of looks in your home from Tuscan to modern with the use of stone, such as slate, travertine, marble, concrete, and linen.
