Between 2003 and 2016, Apple had organized its Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. However, the WWDC 2017 was kept at McEnery Convention Center in San Jose.

This year too it will happen in the same month.

A drug commonly used to control high blood pressure may also help prevent the onset of type 1 diabetes in up to 60 % of those at risk for the disease, a study has found.The drug, methyldopa, has been used for over 50 years to treat high blood pressure in pregnant women and children, according to the study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation. It is on the World Health Organization rsquo;s (WHO) list of essential drugs. But like many drugs used for one condition, researchers found it useful for something totally unrelated.
LG has already confirmed that the company rsquo;s next flagship will be a little late and won rsquo;t be launched at MWC which starts next week. A new report by VentureBeat now claims that the device might get launched around June this year and won rsquo;t be called the G7. While the phone does not have a name yet, the report by Evan Blass suggests that the device currently has a code name lsquo;Judy rsquo;. It is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, which could be coupled with a 4GB RAM along with 64GB of storage. However, we can expect an lsquo;S rsquo; or lsquo;Plus rsquo; model of the phone to launch alongside, offering more storage and RAM. On the camera front, the device may carry forward the dual camera setup at the rear with glass optical elements and a high aperture of f 1.6. Judy is supposed to feature an all new display technology called MLCD , which consumes 35% less battery than regular IPS LCD panels. The sub pixel arrangement on these displays will be RGBW aka Red Green Blue White. The device is suggested to feature a 6.1 inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio and 800 nits brightness. While there is no news about the display resolution, we can expect LG to offer at least a similar or better resolution than its current gen flagship. Talking about continuing features, we can expect the next flagship from LG to offer an HDR10 compatible display and IP67 68 certification. The device may also feature wireless charging, voice recognition, a digital assistant and an AI enabled camera. The phone is also reported to have stereo speakers which the report describes as ldquo;boombox rdquo; speaker. A previous report suggested that the phone was initially scheduled to launch this February only but was then scrapped shifting the launch date further. Instead, the company will be launching a new upgraded version of the LG V30 at MWC this year.

Do you frequently work in night shifts? Beware, you are more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes, a precursor to cardiovascular diseases, researchers have warned. Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the way the body processes blood sugar (glucose). The study found that people working irregular or rotating shifts with usual night shifts were 44 per cent more likely to have Type 2 diabetes. In addition, compared to day workers, all shift workers were more likely to have Type 2 diabetes, except for permanent night shift workers, the researchers mentioned."We see a dose response relationship between frequency of night shift work and Type 2 diabetes, where the more often people do shift work, the greater their likelihood of having the disease, regardless of genetic predisposition," said Ceiine Vetter, Professor at the University of Colorado Boulder."This helps us understand one piece of the puzzle: frequency of night shift work seems to be an important factor," Vetter added.RELATED STORIES'Diabetes And Hypertension Rates High In India: Study''These 7 Superfoods Can Reverse Your Diabetes'For the study, published in the journal Diabetes Care, the team examined data from more than 270,000 people, including 70,000 who provided in depth lifetime employment information and a sub group of more than 44,000 for whom genetic data were available.More than 6,000 people in the sample population had Type 2 diabetes.Using information on more than 100 genetic variants that are associated with Type 2 diabetes, the research team developed a genetic risk score that they used to assign a value to each participant.The results showed that those with the highest genetic risk scores were almost four times as likely to develop Type 2 diabetes compared to individuals who had lower genetic risk scores.According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) the global prevalence of diabetes has nearly doubled since 1980, rising from 4.7 per cent to 8.5 per cent in the adult population. The majority of people with diabetes are affected by Type 2 diabetes.Here are some more risk factors of diabetes:1. Family history (both genetic and childhood habits)2. Sedentary lifestyle3. Body fat (especially on the middle)4. Age factor5. Gestational diabetes6. Giving birth to a baby weighing over 9 pounds7. Hyperthyroidism8. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)9. Gluten intolerance10.
