Whirpool and KitchenAid show off connected cooking at… 1:30 Chris Monroe/CNET Whirlpool is bringing augmented reality to an oven. The Whirlpool Connected Hub Wall Oven is on display at CES 2019. At first glance, the front looks like an ordinary glass door, but it’s actually a 27-inch LCD screen. The touchscreen works with Whirlpool’s Yummly app so you can find recipes based on your preferences and get step-by-step instructions right on the oven door. Don’t get too excited though: This cool-looking appliance is just a concept for now. 0 All the cool new gadgets at CES 2019 85 Photos Now playing: Watch this: CES 2019: See all of CNET’s coverage of the year’s biggest tech show.CES schedule: It’s six days of jam-packed events. Here’s what to expect. Smart Home Post a comment CES Products Augmented reality (AR) Whirlpool Share your voice CES 2019 Tags The screen can supposedly show the calendars of every member of your family and suggest meals based on how much time everyone has for dinner. It’ll even coordinate multiple recipes and instruct you when to take certain steps in order to make sure everything finishes at the same time.The oven uses augmented reality to show you which rack to use and where to place it after you’ve picked a recipe. It will also tell you which settings on the oven are appropriate. During cooking, you can use the screen to look at your food and even zoom in so you don’t have to open the door and let out the heat.The Connected Hub Wall Oven was developed by WLabs, Whirlpool’s experimental microfactory. Whirlpool hasn’t yet specified plans to bring it to production, let alone an eventual price and release date. Since the oven essentially integrates a giant smart display into the glass of your appliance, and even adds augmented instructions and the ability to check on your food on top of that, it could be a super useful addition to a smart kitchen when and if it does come to fruition.

By James Wright, Special to the AFRO, firstname.lastname@example.orgIn the early 2000s, Seat Pleasant was in the waning days of the crack epidemic that started in the 1980s but the city was still not a popular place to live.A group of citizens, led by resident Pamela Boone, decided that the Seat Pleasant Police Department needed help in fighting the city’s crime rate. She, Rogers Reynolds and other residents formed the Citizens for Public Safety Advisory Council (CPAC) to support the police department and encourage citizens to get involved in fighting crime.Pamela Boone, chairman of Seat Pleasant’s Citizen’s for Public Safety Advisory Council, decided to get involved in helping the police in her area several years ago. (Courtesy Photo)“We have been in existence for a number of years,” Boone, who has lived in Seat Pleasant since 1983, told the AFRO. “There were five of us and we approached [former] Seat Pleasant Police Chief Elliott Taylor about forming a group and he supported it.”Boone, a retired human resources supervisor with the FBI, said at the time there were no community organizations, such as a civic association, where citizens could bring their issues about the police department to except the Seat Pleasant City Council and its mayor. In Prince George’s County, most municipalities and unincorporated areas have civic or citizens associations to address those concerns outside of local elected leaders.Boone said the residents of Seat Pleasant did not have a formal way of working with the police and her neighbors and the “residents wanted that.”“We created CPAC to bridge the gap between the community and the police,” she said.Seat Pleasant is located in the central western part of Prince George’s County, bordering the District of Columbia’s Ward 7 sharing Eastern Avenue. The city has 4,769 residents that are 91 percent Black, 5 percent Latino and 2 percent White.Seat Pleasant consists largely of working-class and low-income residents with a large number of senior citizens. Its crime rate is largely the same as nearby municipalities like Capitol Heights.Seat Pleasant Police Chief Devan A. Martin recently reported crime is down in the city due to the use of technology and stronger community engagement by his police officers. He noted that violent crime is down 21.5 percent, residential burglaries are down by 33.3 percent, robberies of commercial establishments and citizens are down by 70 percent and homicides/murders are down by 75 percent.Martin also noted vehicle impounds increased by 38.38 percent and calls for service have increased by 3.50 percent. Property crime is up 19 percent due to thefts from automobiles and stolen vehicles.Seat Pleasant Mayor Eugene Grant believes in CPAC. “At the heart of a successful community is an engaged citizenry,” Grant said in a statement to the AFRO. “The efforts and leadership of residents like Pamela Boone has been tremendous. Through her leadership she has helped to bridge the gap between civilians and the police department.“CPAC has been instrumental in disseminating information to the general public. They host forums, set up information booths at community functions and volunteer where needed.”CPAC is in the process of becoming a 501(c)3 so it can raise money and set up an organizational structure to further its mission, Boone said.

Kolkata: Visitors of Space Theatre at Science City will soon have a unique viewing experience in terms of content and technical quality with the switch from 2D analogue to 3D digital. The theatre which remained shut since March 1, 2017, due to renovation, will be unveiled with a new avatar by the middle of January 2019.”The time has come to switch to digital with the advancement in technology. We had been running the content in analogue format for 20 years. There will be six projectors in place of the old standalone projection system — the sound quality will be world class. The pioneering German manufacturer of optical systems Carl Zeiss is implementing the entire project,” said Subhabrata Chaudhri, director of Science City. The total project cost is around Rs 20 crore.

The 23m tilted dome is being designed and installed by Astro-Tec Manufacturing of the US. “Back in July 1997, when the dome was inaugurated for the first time, it was in seismic zone II compliant but now it has been made seismic zone IV compliant,” a senior official said. The air conditioning system and the sitting arrangement will also witness a change in the new dome though there will be no change in the capacity. There will be a total of 360 seats with more leg space and better reclining ability.

Science City, which operates under the National Council of Science Museums, had sent its proposal for an upgrade to the Union ministry of Culture in September 2015. The approval came in March 2016.
