Monday was a big day for Hoda Kotb - it was her first day back at work after maternity leave, a major (and often rough) event in the life of any new mom. The TODAY show anchor adopted her daughter Haley Joy in February after keeping the adoption process under wraps for months. During her first day back on the job, Kotb opened up about what the first few months of motherhood have been like for her - and her first-time mom struggles are relatable AF. Kotb revealed on SiriusXM's TODAY Show Radio that, before she took home her baby girl, the adoption agency gave her a quick tutorial on how to be a parent. Part of the tutorial included invaluable basics (like the delicate balancing act of holding a baby and eating a sandwich at once), and the less-glamorous aspects of parenting, like changing a diaper (though, even then, Kotb said she had "never been happier"). But afterwards, "I was literally YouTubing how to change a diaper, how to give a bath, how to burp. How do you know? I didn't know," Kotb admitted. Clearly, the 52-year-old TV personality, who recently shared the fact that her battle with cancer left her unable to conceive, figured it all out. She's completely in love with her new little girl, and their bond was instantaneous. "If anything is a perfect fit, this is. [...] Nothing felt more right than her in my arms," she said. "I must have had a tiny hole in my heart that Haley filled perfectly." Like most new parents heading back to work after spending practically all of their time with their new baby, the transition wasn't effortless. "I've been a mess," the anchor said during her first segment back on-air. "I'm scared to be sitting here. I'm a little afraid that I might explode into tears." And tear up she did. Understandably. Despite being sad about leaving her daughter at home, she was happy to be back at TODAY. "There's something about when you look into the eyes of people who are just happy for you that makes me explode," she said. "I feel so blessed to be able to have this great family and a little girl at home waiting for me." That family includes her longtime boyfriend, Joel Schiffman, who will raise baby Haley alongside Kotb and be called "Dad" by her. You Might Also Like

When Nikon announced the D7500, we were struck by how much the firm had plundered the specification sheet of the flagship D500 for the new enthusiast shooter. But exactly how do the two high-end APS-C DSLRs stack up against each other? Here we compare the key features and specs of the two cameras. The new DSLR is a bit smaller than the flagship D500 in all dimensions. While a 10 mm difference might not look like much on a spec sheet, it can drastically alter how a camera feels in the hands, and you might simply find you prefer one size over the other. The D7500 is 140 g (4.9 oz) lighter than its stablemate, which is good news for your neck. However, once you factor in lenses and any other accessories you're going to be carrying, the weight advantage might seem negligible. The D7500 uses a monocoque design compared to the the structure of the D500 which features some mag-alloy parts. This means the D500 still has the edge when it comes to ruggedness. That said, both cameras offer weather sealing and should survive the odd knock or drop. Both of these cameras use APS-C image sensors which measure 23.5 x 15.6 mm. As you can see in our guide to sensor size, this is often seen as the middle-ground for interchangeable lens cameras, fitting in between Micro Four Thirds sensors and full frame offerings. Another draw, with both cameras packing 20.9-megapixels. This should be more than enough for most users, though it is less than the 24.2-megapixel sensor offered by the older D7200 DSLR. Nikon's EXPEED 5 image processor, which is used in the top-end D5 flagship DSLR, is also deployed in both of these cameras, this allows them to deliver high quality images and high resolution video quickly. As expected, the two DSLRs use the Nikon F lens mount. This makes both cameras compatible with a wide range of lenses. However, the D7500 lacks an Ai (aperture indexing) tab, which means you won't benefit from metering information on some older lenses. While the D7500 gained a lot of features from the D500, autofocus is unfortunately not one of them. It's 51 point AF (with 15 cross-type) is somewhat lacking compared to the excellent 153 point system (including 99 cross-type sensors) of the D500. With burst rates of up to 8 fps (frames per second) the D7500 is certainly no slouch, but the D500 still has an advantage with its 10 fps shooting. This extra 2 fps could make all the difference if you regularly shoot fast moving subjects. A wide native ISO range of 100-51200 is available on both of these DSLRs, promising high quality images irrespective of the lighting conditions. They can both also be extended all the way up to a crazy ISO 1,640,000, should you happen to be shooting in a cave, at night. Unlike some of their rivals, both of these DSLRs offer movie recording in 4K resolutions (at 30/25/24 fps). Once you drop the resolution, frame rate options increase, with both cameras able to shoot Full HD video at up to 60 fps. Being fully-fledged DSLRs, both cameras use optical viewfinders which cover 100 percent of the APS-C DX frame. This means you can compose shots accurately and know exactly what you are shooting. While both cameras feature 3.2-inch rear monitors, the one of the D7500 has a considerably lower resolution, which means it won't be as good for composing shots or reviewing them. However, both monitors are touch-screens, and can be tilted for easier use in otherwise awkward shooting positions. As expected, you can shoot JPEG or RAW images with both of these DSLRs. However, the D500 has the advantage of being able to shoot different sizes of RAW image (large, medium or small) and can also shoot TIFF files. In a move which has irked a number of potential buyers, Nikon chose to only put one memory card slot in the D7500, compared to the two in the D500 (and the D7200). This means users can't use a second slot as a backup, to separate different types of files, or to simply have more storage. Wireless connectivity is built-in on both of these DSLRs, making it easy to share images quickly, or control them remotely. While both feature Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1, and work with Nikon's SnapBridge app, only the D500 has NFC for easy pairing with compatible devices. The 950 shots you should be able to get from a full battery on the D7500 is impressive, but the D500 still has the advantage with its 1,240 shots. Though both cameras obviously feature a hot shoe for mounting a flash, only the D7500 features its own built-in flash, too. This could be useful if you just need a bit of extra light, or want to use it to trigger external flash units. The D500 launched just over a year ago, while the newly-announced D7500 is due to land in stores later this (northern) summer. When purchased body-only, the D500 will set you back US$750 more than the new D7500. The D7500 can also be purchased for $1,750 bundled with an 18-140mm F3.5-5.6G ED VR kit lens. The D7500 looks to be a very capable camera, and has inherited a number of key features from Nikon's APS-C flagship, the D500. However, looking at these key specifications it's clear Nikon is aiming the new camera squarely at enthusiasts, rather than the professionals who would also be interested in the D500. While image quality will be comparable between the two cameras, there are issues such as autofocus, ruggedness, and burst shooting speed which will still make the D500 a better bet for professionals who need those features. There's also the limitation of only having one SD card slot, and the fact there isn't an battery grip accessory for the D7500. That said, the lower cost of the D7500 will make it appeal to a much wider audience than the D500. For $1,250 buyers are getting what looks to be an impressive APS-C DSLR, and one that we can't wait to get our hands on to try in the real world.

When a camera like the enthusiast-level D7200 is due to be retired, the young upstart of a successor had better be nothing short of impressive. Nikon certainly looks to have pulled out all the stops to give its D7500 a fighting chance, dipping liberally into the feature set of the APS-C flagship, the D500. The D7500 is reported to be 5 percent lighter than its predecessor, has been given a modified grip and is better able to stand up to less-than-ideal weather conditions thanks to improved sealing. It gains a tilting touch-enabled rear monitor, which is still 3.2 inches diagonally but loses a little in the definition department (922k dots instead of 1,229k). And, though the new camera has been treated to a new battery, it's actually slightly less capable than the one powering the D7200 (offering around 950 per charge compared to 1,110 in the outgoing model). Nikon has also sacrificed an SD card slot, with the new camera rocking one instead of two. The D7500 features the same 20.9 megapixel APS-C (23.5 x 15.6 mm) sensor as the flagship D500, which works with the Expeed 5 image processor to offer photographers an increased light sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 512,000, which can be expanded up to ISO 1.64 million. Sadly, Nikon hasn't given the D7500 the same impressive autofocus as the D500, and the new camera retains the AF capabilities of the D7200, but it does get fed data from a high resolution RGB metering sensor. Continuous shooting rises from 6 frames per second to 8, with the buffer now able to take 50 uncompressed RAW images instead of the D7200's 18, or 100 JPEG format images. The camera can also batch process RAW images for improved workflow. The midrange DSLR can now give your new big screen TV something to show off, too, being capable of 4K video recording at 30 frames per second. Dropping down to 1080p does brings e-VR image stabilization benefits though, and other tools likely to please the film-maker are 4K output over HDMI, auto ISO and microphone and headphone jacks. Finally, Nikon's SnapBridge wireless system is in residence, for remote control over Bluetooth and large file transfer over Wi-Fi, but NFC has been given its marching orders. The D7500 is due to ship in the (northern) summer for a body only price of US$1,249.95, or $1,749.95 with an 18-140mm F3.5-5.6G ED VR lens.


LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Roche Diagnostics UK and Ireland launches the next generation of INR patient self-monitoring meter for patients on warfarin anticoagulant therapy. The new CoaguChek INRange meter allows patients to send their results to their clinic via an App on their phone using wireless connectivity. This innovation helps to empower patients to take control of their therapy and reduce the number of clinic visits that they have to make, saving both time and money. Today’s launch of the new CoaguChek INRange meter coincides with the publication of a new patient survey carried out by the Atrial Fibrillation Association. Results showed that of those patients currently on warfarin surveyed, 86% of patients agreed that they would consider patient self-monitoring to give them a life free from frequent clinic visits as they could quickly and easily send results to their healthcare professional. With the CoaguChek INRange meter, important reminders can be set up for events such as when to test or when to take medication. Comments can be added to specific results and these can be displayed in graphs, allowing patients to see how many of their results fall within their target therapeutic range. Trudie Lobban MBE, Founder and CEO of the Atrial Fibrillation Association, said, “The AF Assoc. welcomes the launch of the INRange meter that can be a future-proof solution to the needs of patients on warfarin. The results of the survey showed that nearly 80% of patients would want to self-monitor giving them independence when travelling for work or pleasure”. Pierre Hazlewood, Director of Point of Care, commented, “Our new meter further supports patient self-monitoring by encouraging healthcare professionals and patient dialogue via digital connectivity and App options. It also meets the needs of patients with new features and improved functionality including adding comments to a result, setting reminders and plotting results in graphs.” Anticoagulation drugs affect the blood’s ability to clot, it is important that the right dose is maintained to reduce the risk of severe bleeding or complications. The new CoaguChek INRange meter will help monitor these doses, reducing clinic visits. It is estimated that just a 5% improvement in TTR across UK anticoagulation clinics would prevent 400 – 500 strokes per year1. Furthermore if 10% of the current 950,000 patients switched to point of care devices, the NHS could save over £11.2million per year2 The purpose of the survey was to help discover patient needs about INR self-monitoring versus clinic visits. The benefits are reinforced in the 2014 NICE guidance on INR self-monitoring3. The development and distribution of the AF Assoc survey was funded by Roche. Roche have not been involved in creating the content of the survey.

Fujifilm gave us one of the most exciting announcements of last year with its medium-format GFX 50S camera, and now it's confirmed the imminent arrival of two optics for the GFX system. The company announced the development of the Fujinon GF110mm f/2 R LM WR and GF23mm f/4 R LM WR back in September, alongside the GFX 50S, but the lenses' specifications, pricing and arrival date been only now been confirmed. With a relatively wide aperture and a focal length equivalent to 87mm in 35mm terms, the Fujinon GF110mm f/2 R LM WR is primarily intended for portrait photographers. Fujifilm has designed it with a 14-element / 9-group construction, with four of these elements boasting extra low-dispersive properties, as well as a nine-bladed diaphragm for circular bokeh. It employs a linear focusing motor that assures fast and quiet autofocus, while its minimum focusing distance is stated as 90cm. The use of an inner focusing system, meanwhile, is claimed to minimise any aberration fluctuations as the shooting distance changes. As with the only body in the series, the GFX 50S, the lens has been designed with a dust- and weather-resistant construction, with nine seals around points of potential ingress. Fujifilm also says it can be used in temperatures as low as -10 degrees Celsius. Just like many lenses in its X-series, the optic has been fashioned with an aperture ring, and this can be locked in position to prevent unwanted movements. When it's set to its ‘C’ position, the user is also free to adjust the aperture through the camera body’s command dial, rather than via the lens itself. The GF23mm f/4 R LM WR, meanwhile, is a wide-angle lens with a focal length equivalent to 18mm in 35mm terms, which Fujifilm is targeting at landscape and architectural photographers. The lens has been crafted with a necessarily more complex internal configuration than the GF110mm. This includes two aspherical elements, three ED elements and one Super ED element, with 15 elements in total spread over 12 groups. Furthermore, the same Nano-GI (Gradient Index) coating technology that was developed for the company’s X-series lenses has been used here. Much like similar coatings from other manufacturers, this is designed to change the refractive index between the glass and air more gradually, to prevent ghosting and flare. The lens sports the same aperture dial and locking mechanism as its 110mm sibling, and has been designed with the same level of dust- and weather-resistance. It also mirrors the 110mm in offering an inner focusing system and linear AF motor. Two accessories have also been announced alongside the new lenses. The EC-GFX eyecup is made using a soft material that's designed to provide a comfortable feel for GFX users, regardless of whether or not they wear glasses. A view camera adapter, which allows older Fujinon large-format lenses to be used with the GFX 50S, will also be available. The GF23mm f/4 R LM WR and Fujinon GF110mm f/2 R LM WR will arrive in June, priced at £2,399 / $2,599.95 and £2,599 / $2,799.95 respectively (Australian pricing is still to be confirmed). The view camera adapter will also be available at the same time, although prices for this and the eyecup have not yet been announced. The new lenses and accessories join the three existing lenses designed for the GFX system, namely the GF63mm f/2.8 R WR, GF120mm f/4 R LM OIS WR Macro and GF32-64mm f/4 R LM WR. A further lens, the GF45mm f/2.8 R WR is also promised for release later this year, while the publication of a new road map shows that 2018 will see a new telephoto prime lens and a teleconverter added to the range.
