Dan Cohen AUTHOR Urban Land Institute has called the redevelopment of the former Philadelphia Navy Yard one of the “most successful” projects in U.S. history.The Navy Yard has attracted more than 150 companies and 12,000 employees since the project began more than 15 years ago, reported CBS Philly. To date, the 1,200-acre waterfront campus has focused on the office, industrial/manufacturing, and research and development sectors. But now PIDC, Philadelphia’s public-private economic development corporation and the project’s master developer, is planning to take the redevelopment in a new direction.“I think you should look forward to hopefully a residential component being layered into the development, so we can create a really urban place at the Navy Yard,” said PIDC President John Grady.“A place where people can live and work and have recreation and amenities. I think you will look for more connections with our mass transit system and better connecting the Navy Yard to the rest of the city and the region,” Grady said.Urban Land Institute cited the Navy Yard’s college campus-like feel, the buildings’ architecture, green design and recreational spaces, according to the story.

You can see it’s mostly East Coasters who are having YouTube problems. Downdetector/Screenshot by CNET If you had troubles with YouTube or Gmail on Sunday, those issues should now be fixed.Google Cloud had been experiencing widespread problems Sunday, which wreaked havoc on YouTube, Snapchat, Gmail, Discord and a host of other popular apps and services across the eastern United States.YouTube wasn’t completely down for CNET’s John Falcone in Brooklyn Sunday, but some videos were inaccessible, at least temporarily. Screenshot by CNET Google pointed to “high levels of network congestion in the eastern USA, affecting multiple services in Google Cloud, G Suite and YouTube.””Users may see slow performance or intermittent errors,” the company said in a statement around 2 p.m. PT. “We believe we have identified the root cause of the congestion and expect to return to normal service shortly.”Google’s status page for Cloud confirmed the company was having issues with the service as of 1 p.m. PT. The search giant marked Google’s Cloud Compute Engine and Cloud Networking services as suffering outages on its status dashboard.At about 4 p.m. PT, the status page said the network congestion issue “is resolved for the vast majority of users, and we expect a full resolution in the near future.”As of 5 p.m. PT, the Google Cloud Status Dashboard shows all services available.”The network congestion issue in eastern USA affecting Google Cloud, G Suite and YouTube has been resolved for all affected users as of 4:00pm US/Pacific,” a Google spokesperson said late Sunday.”We will conduct a post mortem and make appropriate improvements to our systems to prevent this from happening again.”YouTube seemed to be working on the West Coast, with CNET reporters able to access the video streaming site just fine. A CNET editor on the East Coast, however, noted that he was encountering issues. One video, for example, was inaccessible for about 15 minutes.Google Cloud is the company’s hosting platform, similar to Amazon’s Amazon Web Services and Microsoft’s Azure. In addition to powering its own services, other companies such as Snapchat and Uber, rely on Google’s infrastructure to provide the backend for their apps and platforms.News of the outage quickly spread across social media, with #YouTubeDOWN and #snapchatdown rising to the top of Twitter’s Trending Topics section as users voiced their frustrations.

Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. October 7, 2014 3 min read If you have one too many cards to keep track of, payment startup Plastc purports to have the solution: a single card that holds all of your pertinent information, from credit and gift cards to electronic key access. Users can store up to 20 cards (though not a driver’s license).The Palo Alto, Calif.-based company was launched in January 2013. The patent-pending, waterproof Plastc cards — which have e-ink displays and can be swiped through like an e-reader — are now available to pre-order and will begin shipping summer 2015. The card costs $155 and runs on a rechargeable, wireless battery. There are no additional fees when a customer uses the Plastc card. Related: 4 Things Businesses and Consumers Need Before They Adopt Mobile PaymentsThe company is also showcasing a smartphone app on the site called Plastc Wallet that links up with the card and alerts a user when they make a purchase. For concerns about security and privacy, the app requires the pin number and facial recognition to access data.And if it seems like a card that contains all of your identifying and financial information is just asking to get lost, the app alerts you if you get too far from the card. If you do lose it, the company says on the site that it locks up and can be remotely wiped clean.Related: Bill Gates: Bitcoin Is ‘Better Than Currency’So what does this mean for the mobile payments space now? Apple’s new digital wallet service Apple Pay is being touted as a game changer before it is even announced, and it is entering a growing field that includes Amazon, the newly independent PayPal, and startups like Square, Stripe and Plastc’s more direct competition, Coin.The Verge reports that the two-year-old Coin which announced its card back in November with plans to begin shipping the eight-card storage product this summer — but it hasn’t made an appearance yet.Related: Apple Pay May Be the Creative Leap That Outmaneuvers SamsungPlastc cards come equipped with a barcode, magnetic strip, a pin number you key in on the display, and an EMV chip (a fraud-prevention technology). As of now, Coin cards do not support that chip. This a vital difference between the two companies, in Plastc’s favor. By October 2015, retailers and restaurants must transition over to chip cards — if they don’t want to be held liable for counterfeit fraud. So if a business continues to accept magnetic-stripe credit cards after this deadline, they will be held responsible for any fraudulent activity.While it is still too early to determine which platform will win out, the evolution of the credit card is putting these companies on notice.
