The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Global -

A man from city of Spokane in Wash­ing­ton state has cred­ited Ap­ple Watch for sav­ing his fa­ther’s life af­ter a bik­ing ac­ci­dent in a Face­book post that was liked by Ap­ple CEO Tim Cook on Twit­ter. Gabe Bur­dett was wait­ing for his fa­ther Bob at their pre-des­ig­nated lo­ca­tion for some moun­tain bik­ing at the River­side State Park when he re­ceived a text alert from his dad’s Ap­ple Watch, say­ing it had de­tected a “hard fall”. The Watch also pro­vided his fa­ther's lo­ca­tion. Bur­dett later re­ceived an­other up­date from the Watch, say­ing his fa­ther had reached Sa­cred Heart

Med­i­cal Cen­ter. The Watch also no­ti­fied 911 with the lo­ca­tion and within 30 min­utes, emer­gency med­i­cal ser­vices took the in­jured Bob to the hos­pi­tal.

Model protests Gucci’s strait­jack­ets on ramp

Gucci is no stranger to con­tro­versy, but it’s rare to see a brand’s short­falls called out on the run­way. But on Sun­day, one model did just that in protest to Gucci’s use of strait­jack­ets. Mod­els walked wear­ing re­worked ver­sions of the gar­ments his­tor­i­cally used in psy­chi­atric hos­pi­tals, but Aye­sha Tan Jones ap­peared hold­ing up her hands, on which the words “men­tal health is not fash­ion” were writ­ten. The brand is­sued a state­ment in re­sponse: “These clothes were a state­ment for the fash­ion show and will not be sold.”
