Robert Griffin III looked forward to playing opposite the Philadelphia Eagles’ Michael Vick on Sunday. But a concussion kept Philly’s quarterback sidelined. Vick had to be impressed with what he saw in Griffin, though, who played virtually a perfect game in leading the Washington Redskins to a rare easy win, 31-6.Griffin was 14-f0r-15 passing for 200 yards and a career-high four touchdowns for a perfect 158.3 quarterback rating. Griffin also rushed for 84 yards.The newly appointed rookie captain had touchdown passes to of 6 yards to fullback Darrel Young, 49 yards to wide receiver Aldrick Robinson, 61 yards to wideout Santana Moss and 17 yards to tight end Logan Paulsen.The Redskins, coming off their bye week, ended their losing streak at three games and improved their record to 4-6. In the oh-so-forgiving NFC East, that’s good enough for them to be two games behind the idle New York Giants and a game behind the Dallas Cowboys. The Redskins play a Thanksgiving Day game at Dallas.It was the Redskins’ largest margin of victory under their third-year coach, Mike Shanahan. Their most lopsided win under Shanahan previously had been 14 points.The last-place Eagles (3-7) extended to six the longest losing streak of coach Andy Reid’s 16-year tenure in Philadelphia. With Vick concussed, rookie starter Foles did nothing to secure the position. He looked lost most of the time and threw a pair of early interceptions and led the Eagles to only a pair of field goals. Tailback LeSean McCoy lost a fumble in the final seconds of the first half to set up a Redskins a field goal that gave Washington a 17-3 halftime lead.Cornerback DeAngelo Hall and safety Brandon Meriweather had the Redskins’ interceptions, but Meriweather, playing his first game this season, also suffered what the team called a sprained right knee.The Redskins go to Dallas for a Thanksgiving Day match that pits bitter rivals trying to move up the NFC East and earn a playoff spot.
Now playing: Watch this: Apple We tested the Apple Watch EKG against a hospital EKG 1 Tags Mobile Gadgets Comment Aug 31 • Best places to sell your used electronics in 2019 reading • Apple and Stanford release Apple Watch heart study’s full results Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross. Here’s how to clean it • Apple and Stanford released the full results of their study on Saturday. Apple Before Apple announced the Apple Watch’s ability to perform echocardiograms on the go last year, it was working with Stanford University to study the technology. The Apple Heart Study enrolled 400,000 people. According to study results, presented Saturday, 2,000 of those participants received a notification about an irregular heart rhythm, which can be a sign of a larger problem, like atrial fibrillation. The sooner warning signs can be spotted, the sooner people can seek help. “Many participants sought medical advice following their irregular rhythm notification, using the information to have more meaningful conversations with their doctors,” Apple said in a press release.Fifty-seven percent of participants who received an irregular pulse notification went to the doctor. “The results of the Apple Heart Study highlight the potential role that innovative digital technology can play in creating more predictive and preventive health care,” said Lloyd Minor, dean of the Stanford School of Medicine. “Atrial fibrillation is just the beginning, as this study opens the door to further research into wearable technologies and how they might be used to prevent disease before it strikes — a key goal of precision health.”In November, the ECG sensor gained support in WatchOS version 5.1.2.

Varjo wants to use its new funding to staff up and grow its current team of 80 employees to over 200 in the next 12 months. The company also wants to further work with enterprise partners, and already has struck partnership agreements with companies including Airbus, Volkswagen and Volvo.“The resolution of VR devices on the market today is a fraction of what the average human eye can see,” said Atomico’s Zennstroem in a statement. “Until we met Varjo’s visionary founders and experienced their superior product firsthand, we thought that VR was still at least 10 years away from being truly useful for professionals.”The flip side of this enterprise focus is that technology like that developed by Varjo likely won’t reach consumers any time soon. That’s not only due to the high price tag — Bloomberg estimated Monday that Varjo’s headset would cost anywhere from $6000 to $11,000 — but also due to the fact that Varjo seems dead-set on productizing its technology itself.Company executives told Variety last year that they had no plans to license their technology to any of the big players currently dominating the consumer VR market. Popular on Variety Helsinki-based virtual reality (VR) hardware startup Varjo has raised a new $31 million Series B round of funding led by Atomico, the venture capital company of Skype co-founder Niklas Zennstroem. Other investors include Next47, EQT Ventures and Lifeline Ventures.Including the new cash infusion, Varjo has now raised a total of $46 million. The company has been working on its own VR headset, which promises to have a much higher resolution than today’s consumer-grade VR hardware.Varjo says it can reach human-eye resolution with an interesting trick: The company is essentially putting a small high-resolution display at the center of a user’s field-of-view, which is fused with a bigger regular-resolution display. The idea is to offer the highest-possible resolution right in front of a viewer, and add regular-resolution images for their peripheral vision. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.
