Berlin start-up promises home security system of the future
July 18, 2016
finished work on FLARE, the ufo-shaped home security device that will “blow Canary and Nest out of the water”. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the launched FLARE on for pre-order.
FLARE is said to protect your home all by itself, as it actually understands its environment.
“We put a lot of emphasis on the Artificial Intelligence”, says CEO Herbert Hellemann, who built the first prototype in 2014. “We believe that home security should be smart enough to dispatch the police on its own, without you having to spend a second on it.”
The “easy and intelligent” home security system uses face and voice recognition to authenticate visitors, even at night. A feature called AudioIntel™ distinguishes normal noise from suspicious sounds. This allows FLARE to take actions on its own, although users will still be informed through notifications.

Pablo Soria de Lachica - Discusses Significance of Mexican Loan To Pemex
July 18, 2016
, world-renowned trade and foreign investment expert, applauded Mexico’s recent $4.4 billion loan to state-owned oil company Pemex. “Infusing Pemex with capital is a strong strategy in both the short- and medium-terms,” he stated. “As a result of this cash influx, the company now has the capability to adapt to the evolving challenges in the global oil market.” Soria de Lachica noted that, given Pemex’s prominent role in the Mexican economy, the company’s capacity to respond to fluctuating prices is critical. “Since the loan, the price of oil has recovered, doubling from $26 per barrel to $52 earlier this month.” According to forecasts, the cost of petroleum will continue its upward trajectory through 2025. Soria de Lachica views the international financial institution’s confidence in oil futures as further evidence that Mexico’s Pemex investment will have significant rewards.

July 18, 2016
Leading Russian public sports TV Channel, Match TV, today will broadcast a documentary calling into question the validity of the WADA independent report, expected to be issued later today, into alleged state involvement in Russian doping in sport.
The Match TV film is a behind the scenes exposé of the process in which WADA has sought to pre-judge Russia's hundreds of elite athletes in what looks likely to be a prejudiced and biased report against the spirit of the Olympic Movement. The Match TV film seeks to redress the balance and introduce some fairness into the debate.
Tina Kandelaki, General Producer of Match TV, commented:
"The majority of Russian people and athletes are opposed to doping and support the protection of clean athletes, that is why we decided to make this film that will show our side of the story."
