Apple Seeds Second OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite Beta to Developers

os_x_yosemite_round_iconApple today seeded the second beta of OS X 10.10.5 to developers, two weeks after seeding the first 10.10.5 beta and one month after releasing OS X 10.10.4 to the public. Because we’re just a couple of months away from the public release of OS X 10.11 El Capitan, it’s possible that OS X 10.10.5 may be one of the last updates to Yosemite.

Today’s beta, build 14F19a, is available as an over-the-air update and can also be downloaded from the Apple Developer Center.

The first OS X 10.10.5 beta did not appear to include any consumer-facing changes, so it’s likely that this update focuses on behind-the-scenes bug fixes and performance enhancements.

Over the course of its lifespan, OS X Yosemite has received four updates. The first two brought bug fixes and security improvements, while OS X 10.10.3, the most significant update to Yosemite, introduced the new Photos app, Force Touch APIs, new emoji features, and more.

OS X 10.10.4, the current version of Yosemite, also focused on bug fixes and stability improvements, most notably introducing TRIM support for third-party SSDs and eliminating the Discoveryd process that caused ongoing connectivity issues in the OS.

LI Towns Ban Open Foundations For Elevated Homes Despite Savings

LINDENHURST, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Homes built on open pilings fit in well in beach communities and can stand up to storms, but some Long Island towns and villages are banning such open foundations.

As CBS2’s Carolyn Gusoff reported, lawmakers said it is an effort to help residents rebuild and create a uniform look. But the state agency that helps victims of Superstorm Sandy called the ban troubling.

To close or not to close – that was never much of question for Heather Horstmann of Lindenhurst. After flooding by Sandy, she kept the open space below her new elevated house open on pilings.

“The water can freely flow under our house,” Horstmann said. “I don’t know why anybody would choose the closed.”

But some think the open look can be an eyesore. Municipalities across Long Island are banning it, requiring a closed foundation with water vents for a uniform look.

“It fits into the character of the neighborhood,” said Suffolk County Legislator Kevin McCaffrey (R-14th). “It also protects the mechanical structure of the house; the pipes from freezing.”

McCaffrey also supports open foundation bans for another reason — to help homeowners such as Karen Vassiliou — about to elevate her home — until the agency NY Rising recently changed the rules, reimbursing only a fraction of the cost of a closed foundation.

“It’s a wonderful program, but the rules keep changing, and as the rules keep changing, they keep paying for less and less,” Vassiliou said.

By banning open foundations, Long Island lawmakers said they hope to force NY Rising — which usually conforms to local building codes — to pay in full.

“To give people who are trying to get every dollar that they deserve to repair and come back home as quickly as possible” is the goal, said Babylon Town Supervisor Rich Schaffer.

But NY Rising spokeswoman Barbara Brancaccio countered: “It is troubling that local legislators have openly admitted to changing ordinances to force the state to spend precious federal funds inappropriately. Localities, in the name of beautification, are only hurting their residents with this new financial burden.”

Horstmann agrees an open foundation is safer.

“Why would you want to risk the possibility of damaging your house and/or your foundation again?” she said.

Many homeowners have little choice — they have to elevate their homes to keep flood insurance affordable. So now, they are hoping NY Rising pays up for enclosed ground floors now that it is local law.

NY Rising grants have averaged over $100,000 to Long Island homeowners who live near beaches and shorelines, to elevate their homes and meet their obligations.

James Jones: Latest News, Rumors and Speculation on Free-Agent WR

Free agent wide receiver James Jones has been patiently waiting for an opportunity this offseason. The 31-year-old may not have to wait much longer as training camps get underway. 

Continue for updates. 


Jones Visiting With Giants

Thursday, July 30

According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, Jones will be meeting with the New York Giants and both sides “hope” a deal can be reached.

Rapoport added the allure of the Giants’ coaching staff is appealing to Jones:

Ben McAdoo is the offensive coordinator in New York, but he worked on the staff in Green Bay for the first seven years of Jones’ career beginning in 2007. The two left the Packers together, with McAdoo joining Tom Coughlin’s staff and Jones signing a free-agent deal with Oakland. 

Jones’ one season with the Raiders wasn’t an entire bust, as he posted a career-high 73 catches, but averaged a career-low 9.1 yards per reception.

A move to New York, where defenses will be loading up to stop Odell Beckham Jr. and healthy Victor Cruz, can open a lot of holes for the No. 3 receiver. Jones’ relationship with McAdoo can only help his cause while trying to find work at this late date in the offseason.

Study shows that drones could be used to safely transport blood

Blood samples are loaded into the Aero drone

We’ve already heard about drones being used to deliver pharmaceuticals to patients in remote locations, but scientists from Johns Hopkins University and Uganda’s Makerere University are now looking at the other end of the picture – using them to deliver remotely-located patients’ blood samples to labs in larger centers. According to a proof-of-concept study conducted by the researchers, the little unmanned aircraft should be able to do the job just fine.
