  • This is CNN 10.

  • We are an objective explanation of news in 10 minutes, and I'm Carla Zoots.

  • Welcome to the show.

  • A tornado and the effects of it lead things off for us today.

  • We're taking you to Dallas, Texas.

  • That's where daylight on Monday morning revealed the effects of the severe weather that struck on Sunday night.

  • A cold front that's sweeping east across the United States spawned a tornado.

  • We don't know yet how strong it was.

  • Weather officials are still trying to figure that out, but its effects were felt all over the Dallas Fort Worth area.

  • More than 100,000 households and businesses had lost electricity.

  • At one point.

  • The workers had restored it toe half of them By midday Monday.

  • Campuses were damaged, which led.

  • The class is being cancelled at six schools on Monday, and in a Dallas fire station, high winds blew off most of its roof.

  • Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson said that considering the fact that the storm raked across a densely populated part of the city, it's very fortunate that there were no lives lost and no serious injuries from the storm.

  • He said it caused mostly property damage issues, Texas Governor Greg Abbott declared 16 counties disaster areas which will provide state resource is to help people recover.

  • Dallas is in Tornado Alley, a central part of the United States that sees a relatively high number of tornadoes and even though their most common in the late spring and early summer tornadoes can form at any time of year.

  • As this storm showed us when severe weather strikes one of the most common questions we get, what's the difference between a watch and a warning?

  • Well, just for comparison's sake, let's take this stop like green light yellow light, red light.

  • Sometimes the National Weather Service will issue a hazardous weather outlook and advisory treat.

  • This is a green light.

  • Know that the possibility of rough weather is there, but go about your day as you would just stay alert.

  • But as conditions tend to ripen, we may see a tornado watch issued by the National Weather Service useless with more caution.

  • This means conditions are favorable for tornado development, and so you need to know what you should dio in case a tornado strikes.

  • That's where the warning comes in.

  • If the radar has indicated a tornado or someone has spotted a tornado in progress.

  • That's when the tornado warning is issued, and you should get to your safe place immediately.

  • Stop what you're doing and seek shelter.

  • Second Trivia.

  • Tony Janet's an American born in 18 89 was best known for his accomplishments and what aviation, track and field, railroad construction or yachting.

  • Tony Janice was an aviator, a barnstormer and the pilot of the world's first commercial plane service.

  • In 1914.

  • That service was a 23 minute hopping a plane like this.

  • It flew between ST Petersburg, Florida, and Tampa, Florida Commercial aviation continues to develop.

  • Even today, the longest nonstop passenger flight in modern times looked like this.

  • It was a 19 hour in 16 minute hall between New York City and Sydney, Australia, that was completed over the weekend.

  • It covered 10,000 and 66 miles before touching down.

  • And for the 49 people on board, this was as much of an experiment as it was an achievement.

  • Qantas, the biggest airline in Australia.

  • I was working with medical researchers to see how passengers and pilots are affected by long haul flights like this, depending on their findings, Qantas may offer MAWR regular flights like it in the months ahead up next today, thanks to what's known as the Internet of things, everything from lamps and toasters, toe washing machines and refrigerators can be connected to the Internet and your smartphone and critics say a lot of this isn't really useful or very smart.

  • But this kind of technology is finding its way into wheelchairs that can climb stairs and canes that can give users advanced notice of obstacles.

  • And that's an example of how every day accessibility could dramatically change lives worldwide Way need all stakeholders in our society to make technology available to all people.

  • There's no disability.

  • They cannot really imagine what that really means for people like me.

  • There are 253 million visually impaired people in the world, and these people have been still using just a plain stick.

  • Cities can be difficult places to navigate at the best of times, but for some with disabilities, they can turn into gauntlets.

  • With nearly 200 million people globally experiencing a severe disability stairs, Kurds trained gaps.

  • Even crosswalks can be impossible obstacles.

  • But as devices grow smarter, cities are becoming more accessible.

  • In fact, the assistive tech industry will be worth an estimated $30 billion by 2024.

  • That's up from 14 billion in 2015 and when those with disabilities are around 40% less likely to be employed.

  • Access, of course, has a huge impact on the economy as well.

  • It's very important to invest in our field because, as a mad implicated effect, if we develop new technologies does not have just single persons.

  • It helps a large group off users.

  • Three of the most cutting edge examples are already changing lives.

  • My accident.

  • Wasin Joe with a motorcycle in the 1st 2nd You you know, attendants if she constantly article Rose shot through was a He wrote us about a year ago when he made that he would like to test the Reacher.

  • Our goal is to develop a creature that can climb stairs, soaking young doctor go folks.

  • And yet the goal was to make a really, really cool robot that start.

  • But then it switched over to developing this product because we saw there was such a huge need for for the people that need is felt in cities across the world.

  • In Paris, the European Union's largest city.

  • Only nine out of more than 300 metro stations have full disabled access.

  • As of 2019.

  • I think there's a boom in the development off assistive technologies systems getting more robust and smaller and smaller.

  • The's smaller systems are allowing assistive tech to become increasingly wearable.

  • By 2025 they'll be an estimated 25 billion connections between these things around the world.

  • This will transform how devices operate within cities.

  • Unfortunately, I cannot name a single city as a perfectly disabled, friendly city.

  • That's why we are trying to provide this independency for visually impaired people.

  • Way Walk is a smart king developed for visually impaired people.

  • We walk to your smartphone.

  • Why are we walks?

  • Application?

  • And it's so a joyful.

  • You can talk with your cane and your cane is answering you navigation.

  • I get herself stuff.

  • Another of we walks capabilities is obstacle detection.

  • Embedded in the handle is an ultrasonic sensor that maps the users surroundings.

  • If an obstacle is detected, Stick warns the user by vibration.

  • The hunt us on the Bondi vocal Mitch Arc upon the gang enemy child Bosch Mueller with all of these technologies, have had interest from other industries, indicating that the good health of the assistive tech sector can only be a good thing for society.

  • There's a lot off new movement, and there will be a lot of new results.
