in this April 17 2015 file photo Brian Snyder—Reuters 1 of 20 Advertisement Write to Zeke J Miller at zekemiller@timecomA funny thing has happened to me over the last week and a half as I’ve been reviewing a couple Android Wear smartwatches from LG and Samsung: Instead of being the guy who takes out his phone at every opportunity I’ve become the one who stands idly by while other people thumb around on their handsets It’s not that I’m always fiddling with the screen on my wrist instead; I’m actually spending less time interacting with screens in general By having all my phone’s notifications in view I can ignore the ones that aren’t important and quickly deal with the ones that are And because the phone stays in my pocket I’m not tempted to spend the next five minutes looking at Twitter or Facebook Against all logic tethering a computer to my wrist has been liberating But is that idea enough to convince people to start wearing watches again It’s doubtful especially in Android Wear’s current form Right now there are two smartwatches that run on Google’s Android Wear platform Samsung’s Gear Live costs $199 and is a bit gaudy with its metallic trim and slim snap-on wristband while the $229 LG G Watch strikes a more utilitarian look with a rubberized band and all-plastic finish In both cases the aesthetic leans toward “geek badge of honor” thanks to clunky rectangular bodies and thick black bezels around the displays (I’ll compare the two watches more in a future post as I’ve only spent a day with LG’s model My quick impressions are that Samsung has the better screen and more appealing design while LG’s drop-in dock is more convenient for nightly charging) The Notification Machine Like other smartwatches on the market already such as the Pebble and Samsung’s Galaxy Gear line Android Wear puts your phone’s notifications on your wrist But what stands about Google’s approach is how little effort it takes to view these notifications and take action on them with a swipe or voice command With Android Wear there’s hardly any setup involved Everything’s tied to the actionable notifications on Android phones so once you’ve paired the watch over Bluetooth you can immediately do things like manage e-mails dismiss text messages control the phone’s music playback glance at sports scores and get traffic alerts from Google Now The screen stays in greyscale mode until you tap it or tilt it toward you at which point you can view each notification by flicking upward Jared Newman for TIME This can lead to some delightful moments as you get in the habit of glancing at your wrist for information Last weekend for instance I made a quick trip to the grocery store to grab some breakfast items when I caught a notification from Todo Cloud a free smartphone app that supports location-based reminders It was telling me to pick up some pasta–something I’d reminded myself to do earlier–and I would have missed the message if it hadn’t been waiting on my wrist Without any extra effort on my part Android Wear saved me a return trip to the store It helps that the software is smooth and responsive and generally runs without any glitches but I do have a few nitpicks: It takes a little too long for the system to recognize swiping after the screen lights up and I wish you could un-dismiss a notification if you accidentally swipe it away It’d also be nice if the main screen had an icon bar like the one on Android phones so you could get a high-level view of which notifications are waiting Android Wear will also face some natural growing pains as a lot of third-party apps still haven’t optimized their code for wearables For example Secret can notify you when a friend posts but doesn’t show you the actual post on the watch You can retweet or “favorite” a Twitter mention but you can’t reply directly by voice In WhatsApp there’s no way to view full messages reply to them or mark them as read Because Android Wear is supposed to just work it’s disappointing when these apps don’t That same kind of uncertainty carries over to Android Wear’s voice commands which you trigger by tapping the main screen or saying “OK Google” This is useful for quickly dictating a text message setting a reminder or pulling up turn-by-turn directions but most third-party apps don’t work with voice — and the handful that do require you to memorize specific syntax Voice recognition also stumbles in some areas always recognizing “Android Wear” as “Android Where” for instance and failing to interpret punctuation commands like “comma” and “question mark” I quickly learned to avoid voice unless I knew exactly what I was going to get in response Why Not Just Take Out Your Phone A lot of the above issues are annoyances rather than dealbreakers But as Google tries to improve the platform there’s a more fundamental dilemma that Android Wear needs to figure out: If most people are happy to whip out their phones why would they care about a device that spares them from doing so The answer I think will come from functions that are not as practical on a smartphone–things you might not do at all if you have to take the device out of your pocket Android Wear lays a foundation for these kinds of uses but doesn’t provide nearly enough of them Going back to my grocery store example while I was shopping I also saw another notification from Google Wallet letting me know that I was close to the in-store Starbucks The reminder alone wasn’t useful but imagine if Wallet had gone a step further and put my Starbucks card’s barcode on my wrist If every loyalty card coupon ticket and boarding pass could pop up in the right location I wouldn’t even have to think about reaching for my wallet or phone This is definitely possible with Android Wear–Delta is already doing it for boarding passes–but it’s not a centerpiece of the platform right now Likewise Google has promised the ability to unlock your smartphone or Chromebook with a paired Android Wear device and it’s easy to imagine this capability expanding to sensitive third-party apps in the future But even the basic unlocking feature won’t arrive until the next version of Android comes out this fall What we have now is a classic Google work-in-progress The software needs more ways to surpass the abilities of users’ smartphones and the hardware needs to get thinner lighter and less clunky (Motorola’s Moto 360 watch will bring some much-needed style to the lineup later this summer but it’s not a panacea for bulky tech) And while I’m not bothered by the one-day battery life of these watches they need more convenient ways to recharge overnight such as a wireless charging mat on your nightstand Until the hardware and software are further along saving yourself from your phone should probably wait Contact us at editors@timecomThe annual aerial display which has grown over the decades is reflected on the water adding a shimmering mirror image to the pyrotechnics Smaller versions private displays from the hundreds of people who live around the lake add more celebratory color and noise"It’s gorgeous" said Brad Wimmer a member of the Lake Detroiters Association and a homeowner on Little Detroit Lake "It’s absolutely gorgeous"But he added referring to the debris cast off from the aerial explosives "It all goes into the water"So does a chemical called perchlorate salts of potassium and ammonium that serve as the primary oxidant in fireworks Perchlorates are an emerging concern and the Environmental Protection Agency classified them as a contaminant in 2011Perchlorates pose a health concern because they can interfere with the production of thyroid hormonesA study published in 2007 found that perchlorate concentrations rose sharply after fireworks displays with levels spiking from 24 to 1028 times their average baseline levels 14 hours laterRepeated fireworks displays over the same site allowing pollutants to accumulate can result in contamination Fireworks displays were routinely part of Independence Day celebrations at Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills of South Dakota for instance from 1998 to 2009A study by the US Geological Survey and National Park Service found perchlorate and metals associated with fireworks in 106 water samples and 11 soil samples taken between 2011 and 2015 Officials attributed the contamination to pyrotechnics citing firework debrisThe fireworks shows were stopped at Mount Rushmore because of wildfire worries but the perchlorate and metals remainedSo far at least perchlorate tests in Minnesota and North Dakota have not detected the compound or the tests have found it in concentrations below the level of concern officials saidMinnesota drinking water systems tested in 2001 and 2002 both large municipal and a sampling of smaller community water systems did not have any confirmed detections of perchlorate said Cathy O’Dell of the Minnesota Pollution Control AgencyThe MPCA does not monitor for perchlorate in the air and neither the Minnesota Department of Health nor the EPA have developed "inhalation health benchmarks" for the chemical she said "It is likely that some of the perchlorate released during a fireworks display could be deposited in nearby water bodies which might be used for drinking water" O’Dell said "However as fireworks are only set off a few times a year they represent an intermittent contaminant source at best"Karl Rockeman director of water quality for the North Dakota Department of Health said 13 drinking water systems were tested for perchlorate around 2000 to 2001"We have done some sampling for perchlorates" he said But perchlorate was not detected in any of the water systems Rockeman said and to date "is not a concern" in North Dakota"It certainly hasn’t been an issue for Fargo" said Troy Hall the city’s water utility directorIn Moorhead testing around 2001-2002 found no perchlorate four times and detected concentrations below the level of concern once said Kristofer Knutson the city’s water division manager"Perchlorates are an issue throughout other areas of the United States but it’s never been an issue here" he saidIn Canada perchlorates were found in Lake Huron and Lake Erie among other sites and were detected at several sites including Hamilton Harbor where Canada Day fireworks displays are ignitedPerchlorate was detected four days after the Canada Day show but was not detected at the same site after a week had passed showing that concentrations can be quickly diluted in large bodies of waterIn California concerns about ocean pollution caused by major fireworks displays resulted in a threatened lawsuit in 2006 prompting SeaWorld San Diego to cancel its fireworks show that yearFireworks displays have also caused air pollution concerns A study published in 2005 found that pollutants like dust dirt and soot present in the air increased by 42 percent on average across the US on July 4 Monitoring in Ogden Utah has shown the worst air quality happens on July 4Wimmer said possible contamination of water is something the Lake Detroiters Association likely will discuss at a future meeting"Is there a problem" he said "I’ve never thought about it"The list of people subjected to oppression by the Nazis is long and the consequences of being on that list were brutal We all know about the horrendous treatment of Jewish people in Germany under the Third Reich and many will also be aware of the horrors suffered by LGBT and Romani people as well but few know about the suffering of black people in Nazi Germany There were not many black people in Germany in the 1930s Even now in modern multicultural Germany people of Black African descent make up just one percent of the population according to World Atlas and outside of big cities like Berlin Munich and Hamburg there are almost no black people at allDuring the Nazi period it is thought that there were just a few thousand Afro-Germans living in the country most notably the children of French African soldiers who had been stationed with the occupying forces along the Rhine river in the west of GermanyBlack prisoners of war from French Africa captured in 1940 Credit: Bundesarchiv Bild (Wikimedia Commons)These children were among the first to be persecuted by the Nazi regime Known by the racist name Rhineland Bastards they were subjected to forced sterilisation including on children as young as 11 The Nazi laws of race classed black people as inferior on a similar level to Jews and Romani people so when the Nuremberg eugenics laws came into place Afro-Germans were similarly affected They were discriminated against at every level from employment to housing to educationHans Massaquoi was one such Afro-German born in Hamburg in 1926 the son of a Liberian father and a white German mother His autobiography Destined to Witness is one of the leading primary sources on black German experiences during the Nazi period It tells of his attempts to join the Hitler Youth – like many children in Germany at the time he was seduced by the organisations propaganda but found himself rejected because of his race
