Page "[4 POST:GAZETTE, JUNE 21,2013 The Bilingual Corner Senior Living Developers are Breathing New Life into the Winthrop Hospital Building LO SAPEVATE CHE .,. Qualche mese addietro ha avuto luogo la Fiera Eelettronica per il Consumatore a Las Vegas, un evento annuale che, come in passato ha m.sso in luce anche quest'anne quanto c'e di meglio, e di buor, o, tra l'industria dell'auto e l'industria dell'alta tecnologia. Ma quasi inosservata c'e stata la presentazione di un alto AUDI che esce dal garage, senza alcun guidatore, e fuziona grazie a sensori installati sia nell'auto che nel parcheggio. Questo modello, gia' impressionante per se, ha bisogno di ulteriori esperimenti che richiederanno almeno una decade. II giorno pero' non sembra lontano nel future per vedere sull'autostrada auto che si guidano da sole. Bisogna poi aggiungere che oltre all'AUDI anche la TOYOTA sie' presentata con novita' automobilistiche. In 0gni case la guida automatica-indi- pendente -- richiama lei film di fantascienza. Gia' la AUDI sperimentale ha dimo;trato qualita' sorprendenti: lasciare il garage su comand(, che il proprietario ha inviato con iPhone ("vieni a prendermi"). Diversi dispositive rivoluzion- ari promettono di aunentare la sicurezza ed offrire anche trattenimento. Con la presente tecnologia ci si sta' lenta- mente avviando ad un future, non molto remote, in cui l'auto comunichera' la sua losizione al sistema informatico della casa in mode che il ferno possa accendersi e preparare la cena al memento giusto, o avere anche la sveglia che decidera' quando suonare in base alle condizioni del meteo e del traffico. II sistema Blue Link di Hyundai, per esempio, sara' capace di indicare i luoghi d'interesse nei dintorni tra cui i ristoranti e le lore recenzioni. La Chrysler presto offrira' una connessione a11a rete 3G, che trasforma l'auto in un hot spot, e nel ontempo consente di chiudere le por- tiere con un app ovurque ci si trovi. DID YOU KNOW THAT ... A couple of months ago the "Consumer Electronic Show" was held in Las Vegas, which as in the past, presented this year's (2013) best of the auto industry and the high tech- nology industry. But almost unnoticed, there appeared an AUDI car capable of leaving the garage without a driver and performing well, thanks to sensors present in the car, including parallel parking. This model, impressive per se, requires further experiments which will take at least a decade. The day doesn't seem too far into the future when we will see on the highways cars that run independently, by themselves. In addition to the car (AUDI), the TOYOTA was also present with some new gadgets. The independent, automatic driving brings to mind science fiction movies. The experimental AUDI has already surprising qualities: to leave the garage on command requested by the owner using an iPhone ("come, pick me up"). Several revolution- ary gadgets promise to increase security and also enter- tainment. With the present technology we are slowly mov- ing toward a future, not too far, when the car will inform the home computer about its location so that the oven can start to prepare dinner, at the right time or to have the alarm clock ring according to weather conditions or the traffic. The Blue Link system, by Hyundai, for instance, will be able to show places of interest in the area, such as restaurants and what they feature. Chrysler will soon offer a link with the network 3G which changes the car into a hot spot and at the same time will lock the car doors using an App, anywhere it may be.

Neighbors, town officials and business leaders are invited to join us for this construc- tion commencement cer- emony. The former Win- throp Community Hospital has been vacant for well over 10 years and thanks to the collaboration of town offi- cials, SMC Management Corp., and The Arbors Inde- pendent and Assisted Liv- ing Communities, the build- ing is being restored to once again serve the citizens of Winthrop. The diligent efforts of Town Manager, Jim McKenna; Town Council President, Peter Gill and Precinct Counselor, Jim Letterie Freeway Says (Continued from Page 6) there's a chance your dog may exhibit this level of fear, talk to your veterinarian about medication. He may be able to prescribe an anti- anxiety medication or seda- tive to keep your dog calm during the fireworks. Medication may be the only answer to get through the fireworks this season. As soon as the fireworks stop, however, you can begin pre- paring for the next one with a program of desensitiza- tion. A trainer or behavior- ist may also be helpful. In severe cases, you may not ever be completely success- ful in eradicating the phobia, but you may be able to ease some of your dog's fear. Loving your pet and pro- tecting them is your respon- sibility. Do what is best for him or her even if it means staying home and keeping them company. Open up a bottle of wine, turn on the television with- out the volume and watch the fireworks and enjoy. Don't forget to give your pooch a treat while he or she is keeping YOU company.
