PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MakeMeReach has hit today a new milestone: being approved as a Snapchat Partner. The French social ad-tech company confirms its growth: as an long-term ad partner of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, MakeMeReach is now convinced that Snapchat ads are going to open new possibilities to its +4000 clients worldwide. “We are thrilled to announce that we have been vetted as an official Snapchat Partner! From today, the new integration with the MakeMeReach platform will allow all our clients to run campaigns on Snapchat and to benefit from the expertise of our team on this very fast growing social media platform. This recognition by Snap Inc. also marks a new milestone in the MakeMeReach story. After integration with Facebook, Instagram and Twitter,the new partnership completes our offering as the ultimate social ad-tech solution provider.” Over 160 million people use Snapchat every day to Snap with family, watch Stories from friends, see events from around the world, and explore expertly-curated content from top publishers. Snap ads are an up to 10-second, verticaland full-screen video, frequently played with sound on, which can also include the option to swipe up into an attachment. Ads on Snapchat come in many shapes and sizes to fit marketers’ goals: video view, mobile app-Install, awareness, and web traffic. Using a Snapchat Partner like MakeMeReach is a way for advertisers to launch campaigns with any size budget, and also to manage the ads directly from a partner platform. Advertisers will be able to create, optimize and analyze their Snap ads campaigns on their own with the MakeMeReach platform. MakeMeReach conducted a survey on the perception of Snapchat ads: results are very promising for advertisers! To help its customers understand why and how Snapchat ads are new opportunities for them, MakeMeReach worked with IFOP (The Institut français d'opinion publique - a leading international polling and market research firm), to ask users about their habits and perception of ads on Snapchat. Among other findings, this survey reveals that 55% of Snapchat users remember seeing an ad on Snapchat. This percentage goes up for Millennials as 74% of 18-24 years olds can recall ads on Snapchat. Advertisers who know how hard it is to get ad recall will definitely be impressed by these high metrics, especially for the Millennial target whose attention is particularly hard to catch. A very large majority (61%) likes watching ads on Snapchat. 30% even watch the ads until the end, which is higher than the average on other networks The positive perception of Snapchat ads is definitely due to the ad format itself: users have the ability to swipe the ad, and thus, they consider the Snapchat ad less intrusive than other ad formats. 69% think that having the choice to watch the ad makes the Snapchat ad more appealing than other social network’ ads. That’s a real asset for Snapchat! Finally, the survey showed a huge impact of Snapchat ads on purchase intention: 71% of users say that an ad on Snapchat can influence their desire to buy the product. This survey has been conducted by the French Institute IFOP using a representative sample of the French population; consisting of 1600 people who are at least 18 years old. This representative sample is guaranteed by the method of quotas (gender, age, profession of head of household) and categorization by region and type of agglomeration. CAWI (Computer Assisted Web Interviewing) interviews were conducted online through self-administered questionnaires from the 3rd to the 5th of Apr 2017. Founded in 2009 by Pierre-François Chiron and Pierre Lou Dominjon, MakeMeReach is a fast-growing social ad tech company, empowerING agencies (Dentsu-Aegis, GroupM, OMD...) and advertisers (Birchbox, FlyDubai, Iberia, Happn, Privalia...) to elevate their campaigns on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat, at scale.

Apple’s iPhones are fantastic. In fact, many people think they’re the best smartphones on the planet. They’re so stylish and the software is incredible, offering users the smoothest performance and the best mobile app experience money can buy. Of course, iPhones are far from perfect, and every user has his or her own list of things they dislike about the iPhone. For me personally, two things are at the top of that list: battery life and sound quality when you’re watching videos or playing music on the loud-speaker. And wouldn’t you know it, there’s a single iPhone case that solves both of those problems. Check out the PERI Duo — you won’t be sorry. Here are some key details from the product page: Experience a new way to take your music everywhere – the Duo is the first iPhone case to combine a hi-fidelity speaker with 10x the volume of your iPhone and extra battery into a single sleek case. Get 120% more life from your iPhone, with the 2900 mAh battery – that’s 60 hours of music, 13 hours of HD video or 16 hours of talk time! Stream music wirelessly via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Use Duo’s on-board Wi-Fi audio router to stream high-resolution, lossless audio files with 100% clarity. Or Connect up to 64 Duo devices over Wi-Fi with PERI’s Quick Link technology! Save and Play your favorite Spotify playlist from the cloud with PERI’s Quick Play™ one-button streaming while the Duo is detached and connected to your home Wi-Fi. Use the Duo as a speaker phone with its integrated microphone and amplify the volume on those hard-to-hear calls and group conference calls.

Tomographic reconstructions with insufficient data, such as the projections scanned with inadequate angular range or contaminated with noise, are often confronted for transmission electron microscopy and full-field transmission X-ray microscopy. Iterative reconstructions can provide a viable solution by numerical optimization with a cost of intensive computational overhead. Although super computer clusters help to reduce computing time from days to hours, they are expensive, costly in energy and have limited CPU hours assigned to users. Recently emerging high performance computing (HPC) hardware, such as the general-purpose graphical processing unit (GPGPU) or Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor, provides a cost-efficient solution. However, the software tools that satisfy specific big data requirement for transmission microscopy and accommodate these hardware architectures are either outdated or rarely available. More over, it is unclear which devise to choose for different imaging modality and data scale. How this problem is being addressed: This STTR project is developing an open-source HPC software tool to solve intensive computation problem for the reconstruction in transmission X-ray microscopy and transmission electron microscopy. By porting existing iterative reconstruction algorithms to GPGPU/Intel many-core coprocessors and implementing new accommodated acceleration methods, we aim to enable near real time reconstruction with insufficiently scanned high-resolution images and suggest suitable devise for related computation problems. What is to be done in Phase I: In Phase I, we will (1) implement an open source high performance software toolkit of representative iterative tomographic reconstruction algorithms executing on both GPU and coprocessor, (2) perform benchmark testing for associated applications and make the architecture recommendation with consideration of budget plan and programming capability, and (3) engage research publications on designing and developing new acceleration algorithms on the aforementioned HPC architectures. Commercial applications and other benefits: These software tools can dramatically enable battery design for material science, drug design for biology research, and dosage control for clinical practice with a largely reduced budget and energy cost.

News Article | December 27, 2016
Owing to the recent election of Donald Trump as the President of the United States of America, and some of the comments that he’s made to date about infrastructure spending and job creation, the folks over at Bike League recently reposted an old article of theirs discussing the fact that infrastructure projects that incorporate bicycle and pedestrian elements create more jobs than road-only projects. Around 46% more jobs are created per dollar spent, according to a 2011 study from the Political Economy Research Institute (PERI) at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. That shouldn’t be surprising — projects involving multiple, very different elements are bound to require a greater variety of skills — but it’s still important to note, especially if the incoming president is truly going to spend big on infrastructure projects. Projects that include bicycle and pedestrian elements have a number of other positive effects, it should be remembered, including increased business/sales for nearby businesses. Cleaner air and better public health are other obvious benefits. Here’s more on the study mentioned above: “The report builds on an earlier PERI case study of Baltimore, Md and is the first national study to compare job creation of bicycling and walking infrastructure with other roadway construction projects. Using actual bid price and cost data, the study compares 58 projects in 11 cities and finds that bike projects create 46% more jobs than road projects without bike or pedestrian components. On average, the ‘road-only’ projects evaluated created 7.8 jobs per million, while the ‘bicycling-only’ projects provided 11.4 jobs per million. For example, a roadway-focused project with no bicycle or pedestrian components in Santa Cruz, California generated 4.94 jobs per $1 million spent. In contrast, a bicycle-focused project in Baltimore, Md produced 14.35 jobs per million. The PERI reviewers attribute the difference to the simple fact that bicycle and pedestrian projects are often more labor intensive.” That does seem the most likely explanation. Either way, infrastructure projects involving pedestrian and bicycle elements, rather than simply road-building, have a number of other positive effects — including reduced air pollution emissions and improved public health (more walking, running, bicycling, etc). Here’s to hoping that the incoming president takes these things into account when making decisions. Buy a cool T-shirt or mug in the CleanTechnica store!
