IMO you need to stand up to your family. They are trying to browbeat you into obedience. Misguided as it is, it shows they care about you. You can probably use this to correct the situation with a few days of fasting, and sneaking what you can. Try to get them to feel guilty over their actions. Might take a bit of suffering on your part but it might be worth it to get them to accept your new diet, as well as your right to make your own choices.

Bullies get a power trip controlling others through threats of violence. Do you really want to be influenced by those values?

Domestic violence is wrong and you should escalate the whole ball of wax into the legal system if it comes down to it. You would be better off without that crap for your own mental well being.

Elder or not I would not let someone beat me without taking a piece out of their hide. As long as they know you are willing to defend yourself it might influence their actions.

The new normal in venture capital: Tech deals and funding fall sharply
Date: 11 January 2017

Posted by:

A slowdown in venture funding that began early last year is now glaringly apparent, according to the quarterly MoneyTree Report to be released Wednesday by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and CB Insights. It wasn’t until the third quarter that signs of slowing venture investment became obvious, because the second quarter was boosted by billion-dollar-plus financings of Uber Technologies Inc. and Snap Inc. Now it’s impossible to ignore.

Venture capital investment in the United States fell 17 percent, to $11.7 billion, from the third to the fourth quarter of 2016. That’s for 982 deals, down 17 percent to a multi-year low. The fourth straight quarterly drop also marked the first time in a full five years that the deal count has dipped below 1,000. Worldwide funding also fell, to $21 billion, an 89 percent drop from a peak in the third quarter of 2015.

Global drone market could be worth €120bn, study suggests

The global market for drone-powered business operations could be worth up to $127 billion (€120 billion), according to a study by PwC.

The technology to lift goods into the air or conduct aerial inspections of building and transport projects using small multi-armed drones is seen by many as a game changer.

The PwC study said the sector with the largest potential market for the commercial applications of drone technology was infrastructure, with an estimated global market value of $45.2 billion (€42 billion).

The research forecasts that drones equipped with smart software will also have a major impact on the competitiveness of transport network operators.

“Drones and the data they provide are a gamechanger over the entire lifecycle of a transport infrastructure investment,” PwC’s Ciarán Kelly said.

“ Provision of real-time, accurate and comparable 3D modelling data is crucial during the preconstruction, construction and operational phases of an investment project, and all of this data can be acquired by intelligent and cost-effective drone-powered solutions,” he said.

However, the market remains competitive and, separately, drone manufacturer Parrot announced on Tuesday it was cutting a third of its staff after lowering prices at Christmas to lure consumers from rivals, including market leader SZ DJI Technology.

Why Twitter Won’t Be Around in 5 Years

(…) Key factor that could lead to Twitter-as-we-know-it not being around in a half-decade: its darling product, Periscope.Periscope, Twitter’s live-streaming app, has grown to impressive international usage. Twitter recently integrated Periscope into its apps, making it easier than ever for anyone to “go live,” and broadcast to the world in live time.

Right now, Periscope is the hottest product Twitter has going.

Unfortunately, Facebook also has Facebook Live, and a massive marketing budget to make the product grow to scale. Both companies haven’t released updated user counts lately, but it’s evident that Facebook Live continues to eat up a lion’s share of the livestreaming pie, simply by being available to a wider range of people.

This is a battle Facebook desperately wants to win, and it boasts a history of competitors bested (or bought) as evidence that the social media giant means business. I could definitely see Facebook totally overshadowing Twitter when it comes to the go-to platform for livestreaming. That may be Twitter’s death knell.

While Twitter could surprise us all by solidifying its leadership team, developing ad platforms that energize brands and investors and stave off Facebook Live, I believe the most likely outcome for Twitter is to go the route of MySpace — relegated to irrelevance.
