ArcheAge – Publisher for Taiwan server changes after months of silence

          Singtel Innov8 ต้นแบบของ Corporate VC ฝั่งเอเชีย กับบทเรียนการลงทุนในสหรัฐ-อิสราเอล   

Singtel Innov8 (อ่านว่า "อินโนเวท") เป็นหน่วยลงทุนในสังกัดของ Singtel โอเปอเรเตอร์รายใหญ่ของเอเชียจากสิงคโปร์ หน้าที่ของ Innov8 คือเป็น corporate venture capital (CVC) ที่ออกไปลงทุนในบริษัทเทคโนโลยีทั่วโลก เพื่อสนับสนุนการทำธุรกิจของ Singtel ให้มีประสิทธิภาพมากขึ้น

ในยุคที่บริษัทยักษ์ใหญ่ของไทยแทบทุกรายประกาศทำ CVC ต้องถือว่า Innov8 เป็นต้นแบบของ CVC รายแรกๆ ในภูมิภาคนี้ (เริ่มทำปี 2011) และถือเป็นรายที่ประสบความสำเร็จมากรายหนึ่งด้วย

ในโอกาสที่คุณ Edgar Hardless ซีอีโอของ Innov8 เดินทางมายังเมืองไทย Blognone ก็มีโอกาสได้สัมภาษณ์เพื่อรับทราบประสบการณ์เหล่านี้

No Description

อะไรคือเป้าหมายของ Innov8

Innov8 เป็น corporate venture capital (CVC) ในเครือ Singtel ดังนั้นเป้าหมายในการลงทุนจึงไม่ใช่ผลกำไรเป็นตัวเงินเหมือนกับ VC ทั่วไป แต่เป็นการลงทุนเพื่อสนับสนุนธุรกิจโอเปอเรเตอร์และดิจิทัลของ Singtel ให้ก้าวหน้าต่อไปได้ เราจึงเข้าไปลงทุนในบริษัทด้านต่างๆ เช่น เทคโนโลยีเครือข่าย ระบบความปลอดภัย AI ฯลฯ เพื่อเข้าถึงและนำเทคโนโลยีเหล่านี้มาใช้กับ Singtel

การวัดผลยังไม่จำเป็นต้องกลับมาเป็นตัวเงินอย่างการขายหุ้น IPO หรือบริษัทถูกซื้อกิจการโดยยักษ์ใหญ่ แต่อาจเป็นว่าเราไปลงทุนในบริษัทเจ้าของเทคโนโลยีส่งคลื่นความถี่ cellular ที่ประหยัดพลังงานกว่าเดิม 5% เมื่อนำมาใช้กับฐานลูกค้าของ Singtel กว่า 600 ล้านคนในเอเชีย-แอฟริกา แค่นี้ก็ลดต้นทุนได้มหาศาลแล้ว

กรอบการลงทุนของ Innov8 เลือกลงทุนอย่างไร

Innov8 มีงบประมาณสำหรับลงทุน 250 ล้านดอลลาร์ ต้องบอกว่ากองทุนของเราจะมีขนาดเม็ดเงินคงที่เสมอ ต่อให้ลงทุนแล้วได้กำไรกลับมา เราก็จะนำกลับมาเติมในกองทุนให้เป็น 250 ล้านดอลลาร์เช่นเดิม (evergreen fund) ด้วยเหตุผลอย่างที่กล่าวไปแล้วว่าเป้าหมายหลักไม่ใช่ผลตอบแทนเป็นตัวเงิน แต่เป็นการลงทุนเชิงยุทธศาสตร์

ตอนนี้เรามีบริษัทที่เข้าไปลงทุนประมาณ 60 บริษัท รายชื่อบริษัทเราไม่ได้เปิดเผยทั้งหมด (มีบางส่วนบนเว็บ Innov8) สัดส่วนการลงทุนแบบคร่าวๆ คือลงทุนในสหรัฐอเมริกาประมาณ 50%, อิสราเอล 25% และที่เหลือคือในเอเชียตะวันออกเฉียงใต้ (มีบริษัทไทย 2 รายที่ไม่เปิดเผยว่าเป็นบริษัทใด)

ที่ผ่านมา บริษัทที่เราเข้าไปลงทุนสามารถเติบโตระดับ Unicorn ได้ 3 รายคือ Jasper, Rocket Wireless และ Arista ซึ่งทั้งสามรายเป็นบริษัทในสหรัฐ แต่นอกจากบริษัทระดับ Unicorn ก็ยังมีอีกหลายบริษัทที่ exit ด้วยมูลค่าที่ดี

Edgar Hardless ซีอีโอของ Innov8

อะไรคือเหตุผลที่ Singtel เน้นการลงทุนในสหรัฐอเมริกาและอิสราเอลเป็นหลัก

กรณีของสหรัฐอเมริกาคงตรงไปตรงมา เพราะเป็นตลาดไอทีที่ใหญ่ที่สุดในโลก นวัตกรรมด้านดิจิทัลที่ก้าวหน้าที่สุดในโลกย่อมอยู่ในสหรัฐ

ส่วนอิสราเอล เหตุผลคือเป็นประเทศที่มีบริษัทสตาร์ตอัพด้าน network และ security ที่โดดเด่นมากแห่งหนึ่งของโลก ซึ่งสอดคล้องกับธุรกิจของ Singtel อยู่แล้ว

แนวคิดของ Singtel คือการนำนวัตกรรมเหล่านี้ที่เกิดในสหรัฐและอิสราเอล เข้ามาสู่ภูมิภาคเอเชียแปซิฟิก ดังนั้นเวลาเราไปคุยกับสตาร์ตอัพเหล่านี้ หลายบริษัทไม่ได้ต้องการเงินลงทุนเพียงอย่างเดียว แต่ในทางกลับกันก็สามารถใช้ประโยชน์จากเครือข่ายของ Singtel ในการเข้ามาทำตลาดเอเชียเช่นกัน ถือเป็นจุดแข็งอีกอย่างหนึ่งของเรา

มองสภาพตลาดสตาร์ตอัพในประเทศไทยอย่างไร

ในฐานะที่ Singtel Innov8 เข้ามาเกี่ยวข้องกับสตาร์ตอัพในไทยตั้งแต่แรกๆ (ผ่าน AIS ที่เป็นบริษัทในเครือ Singtel) ก็ต้องบอกว่าวงการสตาร์ตอัพไทยพัฒนาขึ้น ทั้งในเชิงคุณภาพและปริมาณ แต่เรื่องพวกนี้ต้องใช้เวลายาวนานกว่าจะเห็นผล อย่างในซิลิคอนวัลเลย์เองก็ต้องใช้เวลา 50-60 ปีกว่าจะสั่งสมมาได้ขนาดนี้ ดังนั้นต้องใจเย็นๆ

สิ่งที่แวดวงสตาร์ตอัพไทยยังขาดแคลนมากคือ ยังขาด experienced mentor หรือผู้ประกอบการที่เคยประสบความสำเร็จมาแล้ว รู้วิธีการบริหารสตาร์ตอัพ รู้วิธีการขยายตลาดไปนอกประเทศ ซึ่งประสบการณ์ของคนเหล่านี้จะเป็นประโยชน์มากต่อสตาร์ตอัพรุ่นใหม่ๆ และข้อได้เปรียบของสตาร์ตอัพในสหรัฐอเมริกาคือมีคนแบบนี้เยอะมาก คนที่เป็น serial entrepreneur ทำบริษัทสำเร็จมาแล้วหลายครั้ง

ข้อจำกัดของสตาร์ตอัพไทย และรวมถึงสตาร์ตอัพในเอเชียตะวันออกเฉียงใต้ประเทศอื่นๆ ด้วย คือยังขาด mindset ในการออกสู่ภูมิภาคนี้ เพราะตลาดประเทศเดียวไม่ใหญ่พอที่จะสร้างบริษัทขนาดใหญ่ได้ ทำธุรกิจไปถึงระดับหนึ่งแล้ว ยังไงก็ต้องพัฒนาตัวเองเป็นบริษัทระดับภูมิภาค

No Description

ในฐานะที่ Innov8 เป็น CVC ที่ประสบความสำเร็จ มีบทเรียนอะไรอยากบอก CVC รุ่นใหม่ๆ บ้าง

สิ่งสำคัญที่สุดคือต้องรู้ตัวเองให้ชัดว่า เป้าหมายของการตั้ง CVC คืออะไรกันแน่ ทุกบริษัทที่ตั้ง CVC รู้ดีว่านวัตกรรมอยู่ภายนอกบริษัท แต่จะนำนวัตกรรมมาใช้ให้เหมาะกับธุรกิจเดิมของบริษัทอย่างไรให้เหมาะสม เป็นเรื่องที่แต่ละบริษัทต้องหาคำตอบกันเอง ดังนั้นการรู้ว่าเราต้องการอะไรจากโครงการ CVC จึงเป็นเรื่องสำคัญมาก

ในฐานะนักลงทุนด้านเทคโนโลยี คุณมองว่าเทคโนโลยีอะไรน่าจับตา

  • AR/VR เป็นเรื่องใหญ่ โดยเฉพาะ AR ที่ผสานเข้ากับโลกความจริงได้ดีกว่า VR
  • machine learning
  • การนำหุ่นยนต์มาใช้ในกระบวนการผลิต หรือที่เรียกว่า Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

          Small Businesses Could Be Blamed For Their Customers' Web Piracy   
Small businesses that offer wireless connections to their customers could be on the hook for illegal downloads that happen on their networks, according to the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) . Record labels, movie studios and other industry groups recently struck a deal where participating internet service providers (ISPs) will issue warnings to customers whose accounts are allegedly used to steal content. The NFIB says small business owners could be charged, fined or worse. The NFIB recommends that small business owners begin giving their customers a wireless password after purchase or blocking certain websites so that owners can prevent non-customers from stealing access to their connections. Businesses will be allowed five warnings before ISPs could turn to mitigation measures to stop the piracy. This could mean reduced internet speeds, or having internet services temporarily blocked. Businesses have the option of paying a $35 filing fee and requesting a second

          Fairline’s new golden chapter to be unveiled at London Boat Show   

Photo

Furthermore, Fairline’s ever-popular models including the Targa 48 OPEN, Squadron 48 and the recently launched Targa 53 OPEN, will also be on show.

The summer of 2017 will mark 50 years of Fairline, and this is set to be celebrated by the launch of a beautiful, hard-back commemorative book in the brand’s honour. The book will include anecdotes from notable Fairline owners, key Fairline personnel, heritage images of some of the first Fairlines ever made, key moments in the brand’s history and will tell the story of Fairline’s first 50 years.

The book launch marks the start of a year of ‘Golden Moments’ for the British boatbuilder, where customers and dealers will be given exclusive opportunities to create and celebrate a whole year of new Golden Moments throughout 2017, culminating in the second volume of the commemorative book due to be launched at the end of the year.

The 2017 London Boat Show will also see the premiere of a first-of-its-kind immersive virtual reality (VR) experience, available on the Fairline stand. The first fully Alberto Mancini-designed Fairline, the Targa 63 GTO, is not set to be unveiled until Cannes Yachting Festival 2017, but the VR experience will allow visitors to the Fairline stand to explore the beautifully designed yacht both inside and out, and to experience the new age of Fairline Yachts.

Fairline’s international network of dealers will be represented on the Fairline stand, together with key personnel from Fairline’s design and manufacturing teams to provide visitors with in-depth information about the company and its ranges going into the 2017 season.

          Fairline Targa 53GT to make its worldwide debut at Southampton Boat Show   

Photo

The Targa 53GT heralds the future of Fairline’s long tradition of iconic designs. It incorporates a beautifully tapered hull glazing that emphasises the Targa 53GT’s dynamic character. The boat’s classic swept stern shape integrates the hull lines, creating a functional yet attractive transom with optional submersible bathing platform.

Fairline’s Targa 53GT is immediately distinctive thanks to its exterior styling and shows an evolution from the time proven Targa lineage, incorporating the distinctive deck window profile with signature Fairline spear.

Designed to be a sociable boat inside and out, the Targa 53GT combines large cockpit seating and sunbathing areas, with interior saloon seating to provide a seamless flow of entertaining and relaxation space. A key attribute of the Targa 53GT is the full beam mid-ship master cabin with king size bed, feature headboard and large panoramic windows bathing the cabin in natural light. In addition to the stunning master cabin, there is a forward double cabin and a versatile twin cabin to port.

Offering excellent sea-keeping in all conditions, the Targa 53GT is a true “boater’s boat” and offers a choice of two shaft driven engine options from Volvo and Cummins. For crewed boats, Fairline offers an optional spacious crew cabin with its own window. Every Targa 53GT can be customised with Fairline’s high quality choice of specifications, equipment and interior options, each thoroughly tested and evaluated for its suitability, performance and style.

Fairline’s Marketing Manager, Oliver Taylor, comments, “The Targa 53GT epitomises Fairline’s British craftsmanship and technical excellence.  With its iconic design, elegant styling and flexibility in spacious accommodation, we anticipate it becoming a class leader.

“We are delighted to debut the Targa 53GT at Southampton Boat Show, prior to its US launch at Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.”

Also on the water at Southampton Boat Show will be the Targa 38, Fairline’s sports cruiser and the beautifully crafted Targa 48 OPEN, which showcases Fairline’s stunning new choice of interiors. The ever popular and proven Squadron 42 and Squadron 48 complete Fairline’s line-up at the show.

Fairline’s international network of dealers will be represented on the Fairline stand, together with key personnel from Fairline’s design and manufacturing teams to provide visitors with in-depth information about the company and its ranges going into the 2016 season. 


          Fairline announces key dealer appointment in Asia

Fairline Korea will operate from its offices in Goyang-City, just north of Seoul. The dealership benefits from easy access to the beautiful Hangang River, an area of natural beauty and a hotspot for leisure sports and boating enthusiasts in South Korea. Established by Dealer Principal, Sangheon Jeon, Marine Grande specialises in sales and servicing for global luxury motor yacht brands.

Sangeheon Jeon commented: “We are very excited to be the authorised dealer for Fairline in Korea.

We look forward to bringing our first Fairlines into the country and introducing our customers to the brand.”

          Fairline Chertsey celebrates delivery of its first Squadron 65

Prior to delivery, Fairline Chertsey’s Dealer Principal, Richard Bates, accompanied the Squadron’s new owners to the Fairline Yacht Division’s on-water facility in Ipswich for a two day handover and sea trials.

The Squadron 65 will now make her way to Southampton and then on to her final destination in Marina de Denia, Spain, at the end of April. The boat’s owners placed their order after the Southampton Boat Show, having previously owned a Fairline Phantom 50, and are delighted with their new Squadron. The sale is representative of the popularity of the design and quality of the Fairline range among Fairline Chertsey’s customer base.

Richard Bates commented: “When we joined the Fairline dealer network last September, little did we expect our first sale to be a new Squadron 65! Both the team here at Fairline Chertsey and the customer has been impressed by the overall ease and efficiency of the order and build process and the consequent technical handover and sea trials. We are thrilled to be able to offer our existing client base the prestigious Fairline brand from our Chertsey and Eastbourne locations. It’s an exciting opportunity for us.”

James Powell, Fairline International Sales Manager said: “It’s great to see Fairline Chertsey enjoying success so soon after their appointment. With exquisite showroom and marina facilities at Chertsey, Richard and his team are ideally placed to service the needs of customers who live south west of London. In addition, Fairline Eastbourne provides a second UK south coast location for the Fairline brand at Sovereign Harbour. With many of the 2,500 berths in Eastbourne and Brighton marinas already home to a number of Fairline owners we eagerly anticipate further sales across the region.”

Fairline Chertsey covers six acres, including 100 Marina berths, and offers the largest boat showroom and chandlery on the River Thames. Fairline Eastbourne is located in one of the UK’s largest marina village developments, Sovereign Harbour, making it ideally suited to handle larger power boats, offering travel hoist, yard and workshop facilities as well as dedicated sales berths.

Leading British luxury Motor Yacht manufacturer, Fairline Boats, will be at this year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, exhibiting a selection of its latest models - as well as an original Fairline 19, a model first produced in 1967. 

Celebrating 45 years of luxury British boat-building Fairline Boats scoured the UK for one of the original Fairline 19 models built in the 1960s and restored it to all of its former glory.  Since its launch, Fairline Boats has built over 13,000 models and is still the foremost expert on designing, engineering and producing elegant, British Motor Yachts.       

Visitors to the world’s largest in-the-water boat show can also step on board six boats in the Fairline range, as well as revisit Fairline’s iconic history by exploring its first ever model.  

Following successful European shows in Cannes and Southampton, visitors in the US will be able to see the flagship Squadron 78 CUSTOM, the Squadron 65, the Squadron 50, the Squadron 42, the Targa 62 GRAN TURISMO which was launched at last year’s show, the Targa 38 OPEN and the classic Fairline 19.  

Oliver Winbolt, Head of Marketing at Fairline Boats, said: “We are very excited to be exhibiting once again at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. We have brought some Fairline history with us this year with Fairline’s first ever model on display - the Fairline 19, as well as a range of our latest Targas and Squadrons for guests to enjoy.  We are seeing consistently improving sales across the US and South America and we are committed to further developing the business and our dealer network throughout these regions.”


          Fairline announces new authorised dealer for Chertsey and Eastbourne   

Photo

Bates Wharf Marine Sales Ltd will represent the brand from two sites, trading as Fairline Chertsey and Fairline Eastbourne and will work alongside the existing Fairline UK dealer network, including Fairline Essex and Fairline Southampton. This announcement sees the dealer network further expand to respond to global demands, and follows a 20% increase in representative dealers in 2012.

Bates Wharf Marine Sales Ltd has head offices in Chertsey, Surrey, on a site which covers six acres, includes 100 Marina berths and offers the largest boat showroom and chandlery on the River Thames. Surrounded by beautiful rural scenery, Fairline Chertsey is ideally placed, with convenient transport links to London. Fairline Eastbourne is based at the company’s Sovereign Harbour sales office, which is ideally suited to handle larger power boats, offering travel hoist, yard and workshop facilities as well as dedicated sales berths.   

Last week, Fairline Eastbourne celebrated its new authorised dealer status by hosting the first leg of the South Coast Marina Tour of the new Fairline Targa 48 OPEN, the first of a trio of new 48ft models, at Sovereign Harbour. The tour continues until the August bank holiday and includes visits to a huge variety of popular marinas and anchorages between Eastbourne and Poole.

Richard Bates, Managing Director at Fairline Chertsey and Fairline Eastbourne, commented: “Bates Wharf Marine Sales Ltd is a fourth generation family business, with its roots in boat building, drawing expertise from over 100 years’ experience in the marine industry. We have always admired the British quality, style and presence of the entire Fairline range and it is a great honour to have been appointed as an authorised dealer for such a prestigious British brand. It was great to kick off the South Coast Marina Tour of the new Targa 48 OPEN and we are really looking forward to supporting the exciting plans and new boat launches the company has planned for the rest of this year.”

James Powell, Fairline's Head of Sales, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Bates Wharf Marine Sales Ltd to the Fairline network. These two new dealerships will give Fairline important coverage in the West London and Eastbourne areas and Richard and his team bring with them a wealth of experience which our customers will benefit from. At Fairline we put a great deal of emphasis on ensuring that our dealers are of the highest calibre, with a vast understanding of the industry and their markets.”

The full list of awards and winners in each category include: 

Service Excellence Award – Fairline Channel Islands

Marketing Innovation Award – Fairline Florida

“We are very proud of our dealerships, and see them as a vital part of making Fairline Boats the world-class luxury brand that it is.  Their intimate local knowledge and experience ensures we can offer a consistently high level of service right around the world.”

          The Targa 48 OPEN is coming… First model leaves the factory   

Photo

The new motor yacht is the first of three 48 foot models being launched in the next six months, and is set to become another iconic model from the range. The Targa 48 OPEN was created in Fairline’s new £2.6m Corby facility using the latest technology and features a dynamic new hull, as well as significant weight savings that clearly set it apart from the competition.

Fairline’s global network of dealers was given a sneak preview of the new model at the Corby facility last week as part of a two-day business conference. During the event, CEO Alistair Schofield highlighted the company’s return to profit and the dealers were given a tour of the new facility – with unanimous feedback about how exceptional the facility was, and praise for the changes that have taken place in all areas of production, customer service and sales.

A truly elegant sports cruiser, the Targa 48 OPEN showcases Fairline at its very best, with lots of open spaces, ingenious features, a sleek profile, and a stunning new interior, with beautiful touches including leather wrapped drawers and composite stone floors.

The Targa 48 OPEN is a very exciting model for Fairline Boats and is already forward sold until the end of 2014. She will be closely followed by the launch of the Squadron 48 at the 2013 PSP Southampton Boat Show, and the Targa 48 GRAN TURISMO at the Tullett Prebon London Boat Show in 2014.

The launch highlights the completion of a year-long project to redevelop the facility, resulting in the new mixed model production line for boats from 38 to 50 feet, along with dedicated centres of excellence for moulding and furniture production, and the introduction of resin infusion technology. The changes have secured Fairline’s position at the forefront of the industry for its class-leading manufacturing facilities, and paved the way for its future growth and development. 

To coincide with the launch event, Fairline Boats announced the great news that the company has returned to profit following three years of losses, with sales up 4% for 2012 at £82.6m.

Invited guests were given business updates by Fairline’s CEO, Alistair Schofield, Stephen Ahmad of RBS, and Peter Williamson, Fairline’s Chairman and Operating Partner at Better Capital. The presentations highlighted Fairline’s aims for the future including expanding its range from eight models to 15, increasing the presence of its worldwide dealer network and continuing to grow new and expanding markets. 

Guest of honour, Lord Digby Jones Kt, was treated to a tour of the new facility before unveiling a plaque to commemorate the official opening of the factory. Lord Digby spoke of the importance of British manufacturing and the opportunity that exists for UK businesses that align themselves appropriately for the future.


          Fairline Boats enjoy another successful Istanbul Boat Show

The world’s second-largest indoor boat show played host to the regional launch of Fairline’s latest Targa 62 GRAN TURISMO.

The stunning sports yacht was a key attraction at the nine-day event and formed a central feature of Fairline Turkey’s truly impressive stand – the second-largest show stand in the world from the leading luxury motor yacht manufacturer.

Thousands of customers were served up exotic teas and champagne in beautiful surroundings with new and current owners welcomed aboard a lineup of models including the Targa 38 OPEN, Targa 50 GRAN TURISMO, Squadron 42, Squadron 50 and Squadron 65 with four cabin layout.

James Robinson, Sales and Marketing Director at Fairline Boats, commented: “Eurasia Boat Show is fast becoming one of the leading boat shows in the calendar and boasts 35,000 square metres of boats and attractions across seven halls. Our presence at the event, as well as our continued commitment to new product development, further underlines our commitment to invest and grow new and current international markets. We were delighted to share the news of the three new models coming to market during 2014 and customers were keen to hear we will be growing our product portfolio to 14-16 models, with plans firmly underway to reach this and grow our dealer support network alongside it.”

Fairline Turkey also used the event to launch its new used boat brand Boatmart.com.tr. BoatMart leads the way in Turkey for brokerage services and has become the brokerage portal of choice for many of the world’s most prestigious boat brands.


          Fairline implements manufacturing change programme   

Photo

The significant changes see Fairline move from eight single model lines to three mixed model lines, as well as create dedicated centres of excellence for moulding and furniture production – creating a roadmap for sustained growth of this iconic British brand.

The changes will enable Fairline to achieve greater flexibility in its production processes and will drive higher levels of labour productivity and materials utilisation. The new programme will improve even further the fastidious build quality that Fairline is, justifiably, renowned for.

Alistair Schofield, CEO at Fairline Boats commented: “As a brand, we have reacted dynamically to the challenging economic environment and moved the business forward significantly over the last year. We have invested in our manufacturing facilities to create more flexibility in our production system, including the creation of a dedicated centre for excellence for furniture production, which is based on greater utilisation of CNC production technology.

Mohamed Hassan: "the causes of the revolution far beyond Tunisia Ben Ali and his party. "

Tunisians brought down the dictator Ben Ali. Today, they continue to fight against his men to head the transitional government. In this new chapter of our series "Understanding the Muslim world," Mohamed Hassan * ((photo-cons) explains the implications of the revolution of Tunisia and its root causes: how nationalism Liberal advocated by Tunisia under Bourguiba interests Western, plunging people into poverty, how a repressive state has put in place to maintain this system, why dictatorships in the Arab world are caused to fall, and how Islam became the condom imperialism




http://w41k.info//48669

(Gregory Lalieu Michel Collon)


In December 2010, riots broke out in Tunisia. A month later, President Ben Ali fled the country after twenty-three year reign. What are the causes of this revolution? And why is it popular movement succeeded in bringing down the dictator where other attempts have failed?

For there to be a revolution, it is necessary that people refuse to live as before and that the ruling class is no longer able to govern as before. On December 17, 2010, Mohamed Bouazizi, a young seller of fruits and vegetables, has sacrificed out of desperation after police had confiscated his goods himself, and that local authorities have to stop working. The conditions were ripe for a revolution broke out in Tunisia Bouazizi and suicide was the trigger.

Indeed, the Tunisians did not want to live as before: they were not accepting corruption, police repression, lack of freedom, unemployment, etc.. Moreover, the ruling class could no longer govern as before. Corruption under Ben Ali had taken a phenomenal amount while the majority of the population had to face insecurity. To maintain this status, police repression would be higher but it had reached its limits. The ruling elite was completely disconnected from the people for whom there was no interlocutor. Therefore, when popular revolts broke out, the ruling class had no choice but to quell the violence. But with the determination of the people, the repression reached its limit. This is one of the keys to the success of the popular revolution of Tunisia: it managed to reach all segments of society, including members of the army and police who sympathized with the demonstrators. The repressive apparatus could no longer function as before either. If a revolt occurs but is not able to combine different segments society, it can not lead a revolution.

Even after the departure of Ben Ali, the protests continue. The situation that Tunisians refuse is not the result of one man? For

signs "Ben Ali emerges" signs were followed by "CDR releases. Tunisians are attacking the president's political party because they fear that one of his men to take power. But in reality, the root causes that led to revolt Tunisians far outweigh Ben Ali and the RCD. It is not enough to turn the president for the people earns his freedom and improves living conditions.

corruption, unemployment, social inequality ... What are the effects of imperialist domination of the West over Tunisia. For Tunisia, after independence, became a project of the United States.

What do you mean by imperialism?


Imperialism is the process by which capitalist powers politically and economically dominated by foreign countries. Western multinationals plunder the resources of Africa, Latin America and Asia. They find opportunities for capital they will accumulate and exploit cheap labor market. I say that multinationals are not buying as they plunder the resources at their fair value and the local people not benefiting from these riches. And this looting would not be possible if these countries operated, there were no leaders to defend the interests of multinationals. These leaders are getting richer in the process. They constitute the so-called comprador bourgeoisie. They have no political vision for their own country does not produce wealth and do not develop a real economy. But personally enriched by trading resources their countries with multinationals. Obviously, the people are the biggest victim in all this!

When you're a nationalist anti-imperialist cons, you are looking to develop for yourself. You nationalize key sectors of your economy, rather than leaving the management to foreign companies. This will create a national economy in the country and you allow it to grow on the basis of independence. That's what I call a national democratic revolution: national independent because of the imperialist powers, democratic as against feudalism and the elements reactionaries in the country.

However, Bourguiba, Tunisia's first president, was considered a socialist. And during his reign, the state played a very important role in the economy.


Bourguiba's political party was socialist in name only. If the state played an important role, it was only for the benefit of an elite only. This is called state capitalism. In addition, Bourguiba has systematically eliminated all the progressive elements and anti-imperialist in his party. So that this party became the party of one man, completely subject to U.S. imperialism.

Habib Bourguiba , great actor in the struggle for independence, was president of Tunisia from 1957 to 1987


What Was Tunisia important for the United States?

To understand the importance of that country to the U.S. strategy, we must analyze the political context of the Arab world in years 50 and 60. In 1952, officers overthrew the monarchy of King Farouk of Egypt and proclaim a republic. With Nasser at the helm Egypt becomes the basis of Arab nationalism inspired with revolutionary ideas of socialism. As evidenced by the nationalization of the Suez Canal, Nasser's arrival in power is a blow to the West because the Egyptian president's policy is totally at odds with the hegemonic Western powers in the Near and Middle East. Worse still: the anti-imperialist ideas of Nasser are emulated in the region. In Yemen for example, where in 1962 a revolution divided the country, the South becoming a bastion of Arab revolutionary movement. The same year, the independence of Algeria sends a strong signal to Africa and the Third World, the imperialist powers put on alert. Libya also note the Qaddafi coup in 1969. The colonel took power and nationalized major sectors of the economy, to the chagrin of the West. The same year, the Islamic revolution in Iran toppled the Shah, one of the most important pillars of U.S. strategy in the Middle East.

short, at that time, an anti-imperialist movement defies strong strategic interests of the United States in the Arab world. Fortunately for Washington, all countries in the region do not follow the path of Nasser. It the case of Tunisia. In 1957, a year after the independence of Tunisia, Bourguiba was one of the first Arab leaders to send U.S. in the prestigious journal, Foreign Affairs. The title of the article? Nationalism best antidote to communism. For the United States who want to counter the influence of Nasser is a godsend! Bourguiba wrote in his article: "With the regard, Tunisia has chosen to make unequivocal its way into the free world from the West." We are in the Cold War. The Soviets argued that Nasser's influence grows in the region. And the U.S. needs pro-imperialist agents Bourguiba as not to lose strategic control of the Arab world.

Nasser announced the nationalization of the Suez Canal in 1956

Can we be both nationalist and pro-imperialist?

Bourguiba was a liberal nationalist with anti-communist ideas which led him to join the imperialist camp in the West. In fact, I feel like George Padmore Bourguiba Arabic. Padmore was a leading Pan-Caribbean origin. In 1956 he wrote a book called Pan-Africanism or Communism: The battle ahead in Africa. Like Bourguiba, he fed anti-communist ideas and even if he declared himself a nationalist, his political vision was largely subservient to the interests of imperialist powers. Nationalism served as a cover, their policy is far from being independent. Padmore had a great influence on the first president of Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah, one of the instigators of the African Union. Its pro-imperialist ideas were able to spread across the continent with the result that we see today is celebrated around the golden jubilee of independence in Africa, but many Africans know they have never become independent. President Nkrumah himself later regretted having taken the advice of Padmore.

In Tunisia too, the submission to imperialist interests has quickly been felt and it turned out that nationalism advocated by Bourguiba was a facade. In the 70s, for example, the President has passed a series of measures intended to attract foreign investors: tax exemption on company profits for ten years, exemption from all duties and taxes for twenty years, exemption from Tax Income property values, etc.. Tunisia has become a vast workshop of Western multinationals in recent repatriation of profits.

Tunisia did she not still been some good progress under Bourguiba?

Yes, there have been positive developments: education, status of women, etc.. First, because Tunisia were the progressives in his elite players, but they were quickly dismissed. Then, because Tunisia was to be dressed in his finest dress. Indeed, this country played a major role in the strategy of the United States to counter the influence of communism in the Arab world. But what had you on the other side? Progressive revolutionary movements that had toppled backward and monarchies who enjoyed popular support. You could not counteract this movement by advocating a feudal system. Saudi Arabia has done so because it could use its oil money for that. But Tunisia, unable to rely on such resources, should provide some progressive image. In the fight against communism, it was supposed to represent a successful Third World countries have chosen the path of liberal nationalism.

But behind the scenes was less flattering. As I said, Bourguiba has systematically eliminated the progressive elements that do not follow his steps. The anti-imperialists who wanted an independent Tunisia both economically and politically, those who wanted to assert their own position in the Third World and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, all were opposed. Tunisia has in fact been used as a laboratory of the imperialist powers. And what was supposed to represent the success of liberal nationalism has become a dictatorship.

When Ben Ali Bourguiba succeeded in 1987, he continues on the same track?


Absolutely. One can even say that the submission to Western interests has grown. Ben Ali was a pure agent of U.S. imperialism. In 1980, as ambassador to Poland, he even served as a liaison between the CIA and Lech Walesa, the union leader who fought against the Soviet Union.

In 1987, when Ben Ali assumed the presidency of Tunisia, the country was deeply in debt by the capitalist crisis of 1973. Moreover, at that time, the ideas of Milton Friedman and his Chicago Boys were very popular. These ultra-liberal economists believed that the market is an entity capable of regulating themselves and that the state should certainly not interfere in the economy. The technical elite Tunisian largely from U.S. schools were highly influenced by theories of Friedman. Ben Ali then left the state capitalism in effect at the beginning of the era Bourguiba. Under the supervision of the IMF and World Bank, he began a privatization program much more massive than what his predecessor had already begun in the 70s.

What were the effects of this new economic policy?


First, privatization of the Tunisian economy has allowed Ben Ali and his wife's family, Trabelsi, personal enrichment. Corruption has reached a very high level, Tunisia has become a country totally subservient to imperialism, headed by a comprador bourgeoisie. Obviously, Ben Ali and his clan did not have many raw materials to selling out to Western multinationals. But they took advantage of the education system established under Bourguiba to develop a service economy. Indeed, the Tunisian workforce is highly educated and inexpensive at a time. It therefore attracts foreign investors.

Tourism has also developed strong as to become the mainstay of the Tunisian economy. Here we see the lack of political vision of the elite. Indeed, no country can develop its economy based on tourism if not first developed a national economic base. The tourism industry consumes a lot but reported very little to the Tunisian people. Imagine: while Western tourists consume hectoliters of water to bask in pools, Jacuzzis or golf course, the poor peasants in the south face of the drying soil.

But it's not just the farmers who have suffered from this policy. Overall, the social conditions of the Tunisian people deteriorated while the president's entourage has amassed a huge fortune. Everyone knew the regime was corrupt. So to maintain this system, the system should prevent any disputes. The repression became even more brutal penny Ben Ali simple criticism or even the desire for modernity and openness were not allowed. Such a situation could lead to popular revolt. Moreover, trying to monopolize his clan the wealth of the country, Ben Ali has also drew the ire of some of the traditional bourgeois Tunisia.


You say that political repression was very strong. Is there anyway today, opposition forces can guide the people's revolution now that Ben Ali has fallen?

Genuine opposition parties were banned under Ben Ali. However, some continued to exist underground. For example, the first Tunisian Communist Party could not live openly and organize like any political party in a democracy. But he continued to operate secretly through associations of civil society (teachers, farmers, doctors, prisoners ...). The PGWPP was able to form a social base and fired a solid experience of this period. It is exceptional in the Arab world.

I think two major challenges now await the opposition parties. First, they must come forward and make themselves known to the general public in Tunisia. Then they must organize a united front of resistance to imperialism. In fact, the imperialist powers seek to maintain the system without Ben Ali Ben Ali. We see now with the Union government National rejected the Tunisians, which is very positive. But the imperialist powers will not stop there. They will certainly seek to impose an International Electoral Commission to support candidates who defend to their best interests. It is therefore necessary to resist interference by creating a united front to build a true democracy.


Opposition parties are they able to overcome their differences to create such a front?

I know that some political parties were reluctant to associate Islamo-nationalist movement Ennahda. This movement emerged in the 80s. He advocated an anti-imperialist line and in fact, has suffered political repression. Why not combine Ennahda in front of resistance to the interference of foreign powers? Tunisia is a Muslim country. It is normal that a political force emerges with an Islamo-nationalist trend. You can not prevent that.

But each of these movements must be studied separately, with its own specificities. This was done by the communist PGWPP. They studied scientifically objective conditions that apply Tunisia. Their conclusion is that the Communists and Islamo-nationalists have been victims of political repression and that even though their programs differ, they share common ground: they want an end to dictatorship and the independence of Tunisia. The Communists have proposed an alliance with the Islamo-nationalists long ago. Of course, the PGWPP does not make Tunisia a Islamic state. Its political agenda is different from that of al-Nahda. But it is the Tunisian people who will judge these differences democratically. Elections should be a contest open to everyone. That is true democracy.

Precisely opposition parties gathered in front of 14 January to fight against the interim government of Mohamed Ghannouchi, a henchman of former President Ben Ali. A hopeful sign?

Absolutely, Tunisia is on the right track: all opposition parties banned so far have created a united front to prevent the system is maintained without Ben Ali Ben Ali. Also underline the role played by the base of the union UGTT. The head of the union authorized under Ben Ali was corrupt and working with the state police. But since the basis of the union put pressure on its leaders and members who UGTT were part of the transitional government have resigned. Although much remains to be done, democracy wins Tunisian institutions under pressure from the people.

Western powers opposed to that. They want to impose democracy in Tunisia where only low-intensity "good" candidates would be allowed to stand for election. If you look at the type of democracy that the United States enjoy, you come across Ethiopia. The U.S. government has provided $ 983 million to countries in the Horn of Africa for the year 2010. That same year, Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, in office since 16 years, was reelected with 99.5 percent of the vote! It's even better than Ben Ali! The reality is this: behind their rhetoric in support of the Tunisian people, the Western powers continue to actively support many other Ben Ali in the world.

The United States could not they support other candidates pro-imperialist, but in the eyes of Tunisians, were not associated with the Ben Ali era?

It would be difficult. There is a part of the comprador bourgeoisie which was lésinée by the corrupt system of Ben Ali. But this elite is not strong enough control the popular movement and not enough grounding in the Establishment to win.

The United States had also thought of another strategy: a few months ago, while Ben Ali was still in power, the U.S. ambassador has visited a Communist leader in prison. Officially, a simple observation visit in the framework of respect for human rights. Unofficially, the U.S. anticipated the departure of Ben Ali and wanted to test the waters. Their goal was to get the Communists against the Islamo-nationalists, divide the resistance to imperialism to weaken more. But the Communists Tunisia does not fall into the trap. They are very familiar with the strategy developed by Henry Kissinger in the 80s in the Middle East. They published a very good study on the subject and know they should not take orders from outside or adhere to ideologies manufactured by foreign powers.

Why the U.S. have they abandoned Ben Ali? Had he gone too far in personal enrichment? According to a cable Wikileaks, the U.S. ambassador was very critical of the system of quasi-mafioso Tunisian president, organized corruption are obstacles to investments by foreign companies.

This is not the problem. The United States does not care about corruption. Instead, it is a key element of the system of domination on the U.S. South. In fact, Washington was aware of the internal situation in Tunisia and knew that Ben Ali would not be able to govern. The West must now ensure that the replacement of Ben Ali will continue to defend their interests. The stakes are high. The capitalist crisis is causing serious problems in the West. Besides this, China is getting stronger and now provides more loans than the World Bank and other imperialist powers combined. She even wants to buy a significant portion of the debt of the euro area partly because it has economic interests with European countries, on the other imperialist powers to divide, the EU is historically associated with states USA.

In such a context, the Tunisian people's movement, under the auspices of a revolutionary leadership, could establish an independent government and take advantage of this situation of a multipolar world. The imperialist powers fear that countries that were traditionally under his rule become economically independent, turning also to China. Tunisia could build relationships with the Asian giant to develop its commercial ports. And it would seriously question the concept of the Mediterranean Dialogue, this expansion of NATO to the countries of the Mediterranean that is not a dialogue but a mere instrument of Western domination.

Another country that seems to fear democracy in Tunisia and in the region, Israel. Deputy Prime Minister Silvan Shalom said shortly after the fall of Ben Ali that the development of democracy in Arab countries threaten Israel's security. This country often called only democracy in the Middle East, would he be afraid of competition?

Under a democratic facade, Israel is a fascist, apartheid state. In the region, it can not ally with repressive dictatorial states, led by comprador bourgeoisie that weaken the body of the Arab nation. Currently, these Arab states are rich countries inhabited by poor people. But if a democratic government in the full sense of the term emerges, it will increase economically the Arab nation as a whole. And this economic development will lead to an alliance of Arab countries against the state racist oppressing the Palestinians. Israel fears this course.

Moreover, there is a very big gap between the official positions of Arab dictatorships and the popular sentiment about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Since Egyptian President Sadat visited Israel in 1977, Egypt's position is "we want peace." But it is a position imposed by force to the population. And the current Egyptian government is not content to maintain peaceful relations with Tel Aviv. It participates actively in the strangulation of Gaza, while the majority of Egyptians in solidarity with Palestinians.

It's the same alignment of Arab dictatorships on Washington politics. Tunisia, Saudi Arabia and Egypt are allies of the United States while the populations of these countries are anti-imperialists. I was in Egypt when Muntadhar al-Zaidi, a journalist in Iraq, threw his shoes on George W. Bush. The Egyptian population was celebrated as a hero. I heard of fathers wanting to marry their daughter with the reporter. Still, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is one of the most faithful allies of Washington.

Do you think the revolution Tunisia a domino effect could cause the downfall of other dictatorships in the Arab world?

70% of the population in Arab countries is less than thirty years and knows that unemployment, police repression and corruption. But all these young people want to live. And to live, they need change. This is the reality of each country. It is therefore not even need a domino effect, the objective conditions are ripe for further revolutions erupt.

People no longer want to live as before. But for their part, the ruling classes are they unable to govern as before?

course. And we see in Egypt today. There are police everywhere in this country. But it is impossible to control everything. A state police has its limitations and the Arab world have reached.

Furthermore, information plays a very important role today. Tunisians, Egyptians and peoples of the Third World are better informed through Al-Jazeera as part of an Internet and social networks on the other. The evolution of information technology has increased the level of education and consciousness of people. The people no longer a mass of illiterate peasants. You have a lot of very smart young people, with a certain practical sense, able to circumvent censorship and of mobilizing the Internet.

there in these countries the opposition forces can guide the popular revolutions?

Why Punishment is so important if these dictators were not in danger? Why the comprador bourgeoisie, so greedy, she would spend so much money in the repressive apparatus if she was not afraid to be reversed? If there was no opposition, all this would not be necessary.

the side of Western observers, many fear that the collapse of these regimes Arab favors the rise of Islamism. As summarized so finely Christophe Barbier, editor of L'Express, "Ben Ali is better than the bearded." These fears proved on of Islamism are they based?

Islamism became the condom of imperialism. Western powers justify their strategy of domination in the Arab-Muslim world under the guise of fighting against Islam. There are Islamists everywhere today. Soon, we shall find even traces of Al-Qaeda on Mars if it is useful to the imperialists!

In reality, the West has always needed to invent an enemy to justify its hegemonic designs and incredible military spending (financed by taxpayers). After the fall of the Soviet Union and the demise of the communist enemy is Islam and Al Qaeda who have played the roles of villains villains.

But the West has no problem with Islamism. It adapts very well to this trend in countries like Saudi Arabia. Moreover, he himself fostered the rise of Islamist movements to counter the Arab nationalism at a time. The real problem for the West is anti-imperialism. That's why he tries to discredit any popular movement in the Arab world who is opposed to its interests by affixing the label "Islamist."

Finally, it should not be very smart to think that the Arab dictatorships are bulwarks against the rise of religious fanaticism. Instead, these repressive regimes have led some of the population to be radicalized. Who could afford to say that such and such people have no right to democracy? In a truly democratic country, different political forces may emerge. But the bourgeoisie comprador ruling in the Arab dictatorships can not convince people. She can not even face to face. To defend the imperialist interests, you must prevent other political forces to emerge because they are likely to convince the people against a corrupt elite. The West has always sought to maintain dictatorships that served its interests by waving the specter of Islamism. But the Arab peoples need democracy. They claim it today and nobody can not go against these claims.

This guest on Thursday December 23, 2010, Jean Manuel Traimond. He had already come on RL in our show, a few years ago, to discuss his book entitled "Treasure of wickedness. "Anthology of humor to the use of anarchists.
As there are only a few hours before Christmas, we hope to receive from him a new gift. Hopefully it considers that we have put into practice his treatise useful humor to Anar. In case of disappointment, does he not leave with our new date?

This curious traveler (it seems that according to him, the anarchists are champions of curiosity ... still a compliment ...), would the United Arab Emirates with a lot of "Suras"! We do not know what it is, but surely it's worth its weight in oil.

And we'll ask him about his plans, his informative walks on "Water Thieves," the crimes of capitalism whose victims have only increased in number since the "untouchables" Japan, Pakistanis in Dubai and many more.

During his travels and translations of "anarchists", he met a character who died in February 2010, a writer, English architect, editor of "Anarchy", Colin Ward. And new access to "curiosity" is going to lend an ear if John Manuel willing to talk about that English anarchist who had devised a new form of rudder for a mutual company, federalist-based anarchist organization in which units organizing are small, temporary and limited powers, free and voluntary action. And he described, very in tune with the new technologies of networks, the organization of "cyber-anarchy", as opposed to capitalism, "mechanical" and disposer of the individual.
Colin Ward

And John Traimond manual, a book mentions of Colin Ward in which the "anarchism is compared to the seeds under the snow." The snow is here, in December, up to us to grow this "seed" of Anarchy.

So, dear listeners Chronicle Weekly ... Listen ...

          A Beginners Guide and Tutorial for GANs   
Via O'Reilly, supported by Google. A Simplified Tutorial.  Instructive, not the idea of a network generating content.

Beginner's guide to GANs

This tutorial will show you how to build a generative adversarial network that learns to generate handwritten digits—essentially you'll teach a neural network how to write. You can download and modify the code from this tutorial on GitHub.

Generative Adversarial Networks for Beginners
Build a neural network that learns to generate handwritten digits.
By Jon Bruner,  Adit Deshpande  
Practical Generative Adversarial Networks for Beginners

You can download and modify the code from this tutorial on GitHub ... 

According to Yann LeCun, “adversarial training is the coolest thing since sliced bread.” Sliced bread certainly never created this much excitement within the deep learning community. Generative adversarial networks—or GANs, for short—have dramatically sharpened the possibility of AI-generated content, and have drawn active research efforts since they were first described by Ian Goodfellow et al. in 2014.

GANs are neural networks that learn to create synthetic data similar to some known input data. For instance, researchers have generated convincing images from photographs of everything from bedrooms to album covers, and they display a remarkable ability to reflect higher-order semantic logic.   ....

Its good to remember that statistics is the basis of all useful problem solving:

Making Statistics Work in the Real World

Wharton's Bhaswar Bhattacharya discusses his research on statistical methods.

The field of statistics is about more than just crunching numbers. Wharton statistics professor Bhaswar Bhattacharya is researching the best ways to apply statistical methods to solve problems in a range of fields, from health care to marketing to languages. Bhattacharya spoke with Knowledge@Wharton about shedding new light on one of the oldest mathematical disciplines.  

(Podcast) An edited transcript of the conversation follows. .... 

Knowledge@Wharton: Could you give us a brief summary of your research and what kind of question you were trying to answer?

Bhaswar Bhattacharya: My research interests are the intersection of statistics probability and combinatorics. Recently, numerous and very interesting combinatorial and graph theory-related problems have emerged in statistics, mainly because of the ubiquitous presence of network data and the increasing use of graph-based methods in modern-day analytics. As a consequence, many interesting connections have emerged between modern statistical methods and classical concepts in geometry and probability. You can use them to solve interesting problems in statistics. .... "

          Comment on Banana Oatmeal Cookies by Jenifer   
Hey there! Just came across this recipe and it looks like it calls for 4 teaspoons of nutmeg. I'm getting question marks in weird places in the text, so maybe I'm not seeing it right. But I remembered something I heard on Food Network years ago, too much nutmeg is toxic. Apparently they have researchers who check the safety of recipes before airing; they gave the example of how one with too much nutmeg got cut. Just wanted to throw that info out there. I looked it up before writing this and saw 2-3 teaspoons can be toxic. Still saving the recipe, but will switch most of the nutmeg with cinnamon and cloves. :)
          نفي إشاعات إلغاء إضافة Mass Effect Andromeda   
لعبة "Mass Effect Andromeda" ليست سيئة بأي من المقاييس ، و لكنها بالطبع لم تخلو من العيوب ، مما قد يسمح لانتشار إشاعات أن "Electronic Arts" تقلل دعم اللعبة في صمت .
بعد انتشار بعض الشائعات أن الإضافة الجديدة للعبة سيتم إلغاؤها ، لذلك رد المطورون "Bioware" و المنتجون "Electronic Arts" لينفوا هذه الإشاعات .

بدأت الإشاعات بهذا المقال من موقع "Critical Hit" ، الذي قدم منشورًا حذف بسرعة من موقع "Facebook" من المطور الأسترالي "Sinclair Networks" ، و نصت الرسالة أن الستوديو لن يصدر إضافات لـ"Mass Effect Andromeda" بعد الآن ، و أن السلسلة ستوضع على الرف حتى تحديد صدور جزء آخر .

لذلك رد المطورون "Bioware" و المنتجون "Electronic Arts" بأن ادعاءات "Sinclair Networks" خاطئة لأنهم ليس لهم أي علاقة بالمطور ، و أنه لم يسبق لهم العمل مع هذا المطور و أنه ليس له أي دخل في تطوير "Mass Effect Andromeda" .

و اتخذت "BioWare" خطوة للأمام بإدعاء أن "Sinclair Networks" هي شركة مزيفة ، قال منتج "Mass Effect" أنه لم يسمع بـ"Sinclair Networks" من قبل .

إذا فلقد انتهى الأمر هنا و هناك إضافة جديدة قادمة في الطريق ، نعم ؟ في الواقع ، ربما لا ، هناك تقارير جديدة أن تقترح أن فكرة الإضافات تم إلغاؤها بدون أي علاقة بإشاعات "Sinclair Networks" ، و لكن ممثلي "EA" ظلوا صامتين بشأن هذه النقطة .

و بالرغم من كل ما قيل ، لازال المطور "Bioware" يدعم "Mass Effect Andromeda" بالإصلاحات و التحديثات .
"Mass Effect Andromeda" متاحة للـPC و الـPlayStation 4 و الـXbox One .

          بطل الدوري الألماني يبدأ استعدادته بـ6 لاعبين   
Publication Date: 
Sat, 2017-07-01 21:15
بدأ فريق بايرن ميونخ الألماني لكرة القدم اليوم السبت، فترة الإعداد للموسم الجديد بستة لاعبين فقط، في الوقت نفسه لم يستبعد المدرب كارلو أنشيلوتي التعاقد مع صفقات من العيار الثقيل.وتواجد فقط توماس مولر وماتس هوميلز وفرانك ريبيري وخافي مارتينيز وكينجسلي كومان وخوان برنات في التدريب الأول للفريق.وتغيب البعض بسبب الإصابة، والبعض الأخر سيبدأ التدريبات في العاشر من الشهر الجاري، فيما سينضم اللاعبون الدوليون، المشاركون في كأس القارات والبطولات الأخرى، بنهاية الشهر الجاري.نفس الأمر سيطبق على اللاعبين الذين تعاقد معهم بايرن حتى الآن وهم نيكلاس سويلي وسيباستيان رودي القادمان من هوفنهايم وسيرج نابري القادم من بريمن، والذي توج مع المنتخب الألماني للشباب بلقب بطولة أمم أوروبا تحت 21 عاما أمس الجمعة، وكورينتين توليسو القادم من ليون في أغلى صفقات الدوري الألماني بوندسليجا، حيث انضم مقابل 5.41 مليون يورو 4.47 مليون دولار.وقال أنشيلوتي:"كورينتين توليسو لاعب وسط جيد جدا، لديه حس تمركزي عظيم ويمرر الكرة بشكل جيد، سيكون إضافة للفريق".وأضاف أنشيلوتي: "الفريق سيكون جاهزا إذا كان هناك فرصة، لضم نجوم آخرين خاصة مع وجود تكهنات بضم أليكسيس سانشيز الذي يمكن لراتبه أن يكون مرتفعا للغاية".وأكد أنشيلوتي:"أليكسيس لاعب عظيم ولكنه ليس الوحيد في العالم".وأشار إلى أن بايرن ميونخ لا ينفق مبالغ طائلة لشراء لاعبين.ولكن المدرب الإيطالي، الذي سيكون لديه مساعدا جديدا وهو ويلي سانيول، قال أيضا إنه سيكون سعيدا بفريقه الحالي.وأكد: "أنا سعيد بالفريق، لقد تعاقدنا مع أربعة لاعبين جيدين".ويستهل بايرن مسعاه نحو تحقيق لقبه السادس على التوالي في الدوري الألماني يوم 18 أغسطس أمام باير ليفركوزن، ويريد أيضا الفوز بدوري أبطال أوروبا، الذي حصد لقبه آخر مرة في 2013.

          Yahoo tests new social network Mash   
Yahoo is testing an experimental social network service called Mash, apparently designed to lure users away from rivals Facebook and MySpace.

Mash has already been dubbed “an homage to Facebook” – but with a difference: users of the new Yahoo site can edit each other’s profiles. “Think the Wikipedia version of a social network,” the New York Times said.

Executives at Yahoo, under immense pressure to rejuvenate the ailing internet giant, were more cagey. “Ongoing product innovation is important to Yahoo and we continue to test various products and services to gain feedback from our users,” a spokesman said.

          IBM AIX Workstation 7011-250 (Bull DPX-20 / 100)   

Linux acum pe toate drumurile, și toți se laudă că știu să administreze un server cu Linux (chiar dacă-s p’afariști).
Așa că nu mai este impresionant la resume’ - și nici la salariu.
Administratorii de UNIX-uri comerciale însă sunt la căutare. Cu banu’ gros.

Dar aveți noroc - cine vrea să învețe să administreze un UNIX comercial - AIX - poate să îl ia de la mine pe Costel.

Costel este un IBM 7011-250 (re-badge-uit ca Bull DPX-20 / 100, produs “European” pentru a putea fi luat cu fonduri EU)
cu:
- 1 CPU PowerPC 601 66Mhz
- 96 MB Ram (4*16 + 4*8)
- 2.88 MB Floppy drive
- HDD SCSI 9Gb
- 2 plăci rețea 10Mbps cu transcievere RJ45 (una on-board, una pe slot MCA)
- Placă MCA multi-serial (8 porturi) la care nu am însă cablul.
- Făra placă video - consola pe port serial, dau și cablu serial.
- AIX 5.1L instalat. Ultima versiune care mai suportă PowerPC601
- Cheie originală front-panel.

Extra:

- CD-uri: instalare AIX 4.3.3, instalare AIX 5.1, copie la arhiva de freeware pt AIX 4.3.3 de la bulfreeware.com
- CDROM SCSI extern UltraPlex 40max (unul din puținele modele cu sector-size selectabil - de pe care pot boota Mac-uri vechi și SGI-uri)
- Unitate bandă SCSI VXA-1 in cutie externă SCSI Bull
- HDD SCSI 15Krpm 36Gb în cutie externă SCSI Sun
- Toate cablurile SCSI necesare
- Bandă date 8mm VXA V17 + bandă curățare 8mm VXA + bandă date 8mm Sony modificată pt compatibiliate VXA + 12 alte benzi de 8mm gata de a fi modificate de voi.

Opționale:

- Diverse adaptoare port serial
- Switch 10/100
- “Skateboard” - o placă de lemn cu rotile și prelungitor pe care o foloseam ca să-l pot băga și scoate ușor dintr-o debara (cu toate cutiile SCSI pornite nu este foarte silențios)

Ce-i lipsește:

- Un stăpân iubitor. La mine stătea în debara și colecta praf.
- Un adaptor USB-Serial pt consolă - dacă vreți să accesați consola de pe mac

Cât costă ?

100 lei.

De unde îl iau ?

Bucureșți, sector.2, lângă stadionul național.
NU îl trimit cu curier - este făcut din oțel gros, este GREU.

          Countdown Clocks, Morning Cocktails As Former FBI Director Prepares To Testify   
TV networks have deployed countdown clocks. People are tweeting about places to watch and whether they'll offer morning cocktail specials. Congressional aides report that demand for seats inside the Senate hearing room has reached levels not seen for decades. Anticipation is building for testimony from fired FBI Director James Comey, not least in the White House, where the president and his aides worry the telegenic former law enforcement leader could inflict both political and legal wounds. What Comey might say Friends and associates of the former FBI director described Comey as shocked that news of his firing came from a television screen, while he was speaking to agents in California last month. Just three years into a 10-year-term, Comey's associates said he had no inkling he was on the verge of losing his job, especially not while the Bureau was in the middle of investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential contest. Comey did, however, have an uneasy feeling about

Planet X Incoming: Giant sinkhole swallows sleeping woman in China
Latest earth changes news...
SOURCE

A sleeping woman was swallowed by sinkhole in central China after her bedroom collapsed during heavy rain.

The video, filmed in Shizhuling, Hunan Province on June 25, shows how the house partially collapsed when the sinkhole opened due to the unstable terrain composed of a network of caves and waterways.

 

 

Just like Jeff Bush in Florida a few years ago! Fears are growing for a 45-year-old mother in central China who was apparently swallowed by a sinkhole while she was sleeping in her bed.

Giant sinkhole swallows sleeping woman in China (video). via South China Morning Post
It is her husband that rang the alarm on Saturday morning, when after hearing a loud boom, he entered his bedroom, and found a three-square-metre hole in the floor that swallowed a refrigerator, an electric fan and his wife.
The couple lives in Shizhuling, a village in the city of Lianyuan, which had been hard hit by heavy rains over the previous two days.

Search for the swallowed woman

Rescue teams launched a search for the missing woman – digging to a depth of 15 metres – but the work had to be called off when conditions became too dangerous. The excavation in the sodden ground even led to the partial collapse of a neighbouring property.

The deadly sinkhole was most certainly due to geological landscape in the area made of a network of caves and underground waterways.

DEVELOPING: Mysterious boom shakes houses and alarms residents in St. Helens, Oregon


A mysterious sound resembling a thunderous explosion was heard around 8 p.m. on June 25 in the St. Helens area. Curious citizens flooded social media with questions about the origin of the loud boom that some said shook homes and rattled windows. According to St. Helens Police Chief Terry Moss, the first reports of the sound came in at 8:22 p.m. Moss said his department fielded 11 calls regarding the boom, mainly from residents on the west side of town.
The cause of the sound has not been determined. Moss said this time of year is marked by frequent firework and “loud boom” reports. Without more definitive information, Moss said the matter would be considered closed. There was a viral reaction to the sound on Facebook, where reports of the boom were contentiously debated and numerous theories were offered. READ MORE


BIRTH PANGS: 900 Quakes in Yellowstone, 40 quakes near Lake Tahoe, 40 Quakes in N. Iceland


There are currently several seismic swarms taking place around the world. Nobody knows when they are going to stop and more frightening what they are going to produce. Yellowstone Supervolcano earthquake swarm reaches 878 events in just two weeks. The earthquake swarm hitting the Yellowstone national Park is currently slowing down, but more than 900 quakes have already hit near West Yellowstone on the western edge of the National Park in the last 2 weeks. But there is
virtually no risk of the volcano erupting – USGS hasn’t raised either the volcano alert level or the aviation color. The current earthquake swarm began on June 12. A week later, the USGS put out a statement to say that 464 earthquakes had been recorded, with the largest being magnitude 4.4. This is the highest number of earthquakes at Yellowstone within a single week in the past five years. At the time, a spokesperson for the USGS said “slowly winding down,” adding that “no other geological activity has been detected.” However, in a newly released statement about the ongoing swarm, seismologists from the University of Utah said 878 events have now been recorded at Yellowstone National Park.

          Front-End Performance Checklist 2017 (PDF, Apple Pages)   

   

Are you using progressive booting already? What about tree-shaking and code-splitting in React and Angular? Have you set up Brotli or Zopfli compression, OCSP stapling and HPACK compression? Also, how about resource hints, client hints and CSS containment — not to mention IPv6, HTTP/2 and service workers?

PRPL Pattern in the application shell architecture

Performance isn’t just a technical concern: It matters, and when baking it into the workflow, design decisions have to be informed by their performance implications. Performance has to be measured, monitored and refined continually, and the growing complexity of the web poses new challenges that make it hard to keep track of metrics, because metrics will vary significantly depending on the device, browser, protocol, network type and latency (CDNs, ISPs, caches, proxies, firewalls, load balancers and servers all play a role in performance).

          Fusión de Servired, 4B y Euro 6000: así será el monopolio de los cajeros automáticos   

Cajero automático

La medida llevaba gestándose más de un año: las tres grandes redes españolas de cajeros automáticos (Servired, 4B y Euro 6000) se fusionarán en una única entidad que ejercerá un monopolio prácticamente total en el servicio de retirada de efectivo. Servired, la mayor de las tres, controlará el 66% de la nueva sociedad.

Esta operación no es sorprendente: en buena parte de Europa los cajeros están operados por monopolios nacionales participados por el sector bancario local. La red alemana Girocard o la francesa Carte Bleue llevan décadas controlando la práctica totalidad de los terminales en sus respectivos países. En Holanda, donde los pagos con tarjeta ya superan a los realizados en efectivo, los grandes bancos se plantean no solo integrar la red sino ceder los cajeros a una entidad conjunta con una marca única. España se suma ahora a esta tendencia.

La empresa resultante operará casi 64.000 cajeros y tendrá 72 millones de tarjetas de crédito y débito en circulación. Los mayores accionistas serán los tres grandes bancos del país: Santander (con el Popular), BBVA y CaixaBank; que también son los que aportan mayor número de cajeros, tarjetas y clientes al conglomerado. ¿Qué consecuencias tendrá el monopolio de los cajeros para los usuarios?

La guerra de los cajeros está aquí para quedarse

La gran ventaja técnica de las redes de cajeros es que permiten realizar operaciones a clientes de todas las entidades participantes, al margen de la retirada de efectivo (por ejemplo consultas de saldo, recargas y similares). Además, la mayoría de redes ofrecen ventajas comerciales: los clientes de todos los bancos asociados pueden retirar dinero gratis (o por una comisión ínfima) en toda la red. En España también sucedía esto: los clientes de cualquier banco asociado a 4B, por ejemplo, podían sacar dinero gratis en cualquier terminal 4B. Hasta que comenzó la guerra de los cajeros.

A finales de 2015, los tres grandes de la banca española decidieron unilateralmente acabar con las ventajas para clientes de entidades asociadas a sus redes de cajeros. Comenzaron a cobrar 2 euros por transacción a clientes de otros bancos, independientemente de la red a la que pertenecieran. Se acababa así la razón de ser de Servired, 4B y Euro 6000 desde el punto de vista comercial.

Nada parece indicar que la política de comisiones en los cajeros vaya a cambiar tras la fusión

Nada parece indicar que la política basada en cobrar a clientes de otros bancos vaya a cambiar tras la fusión. Las entidades con menos cajeros se verán obligadas a mantener acuerdos con otras mayores –o de ofrecer alternativas como el cashback– si quieren que sus clientes puedan retirar efectivo gratuitamente.

¿Habrá ventajas para los consumidores?

Con la integración de las tres redes, se simplifican los pagos con tarjeta en España. El coste real de las transacciones se reducirá, al eliminarse la necesidad de interconectar distintas redes (por ejemplo, para pagar con una tarjeta Servired en una tienda cuyo TPV está conectado a Euro 6000). Pero está por ver si esta bajada repercutirá en las comisiones que deben pagar los comercios, una de las principales razones por las que muchos aún son reacios a aceptar este método de pago.

Cardpayment Pago con tarjeta

En cuanto a los cajeros automáticos, al estar todos conectados a la misma red, aumentarán las posibilidades de realizar operaciones (al margen de retiradas de efectivo) independientemente de la entidad a la que pertenezca la tarjeta. Y aunque en principio los grandes bancos no vayan a cambiar su política de cobrar a clientes de otras entidades, cabría la posibilidad de que las autoridades de la competencia decidan rebajar las tarifas máximas (actualmente 2 euros por transacción) para autorizar la fusión.

De momento, todo son conjeturas. Está por ver hasta qué punto la integración de todos los cajeros reduce las comisiones para pequeños comercios y clientes individuales. Lo que sí está claro es que la banca española reducirá costes con esta fusión, y que el nuevo conglomerado será uno de los mayores operadores de cajeros y tarjetas de la Unión Europea.

          Tracing the Potential Flow of Consumer Data: A Network Analysis of Prominent Health and Fitness Apps   
Background: A great deal of consumer data, collected actively through consumer reporting or passively through sensors, is shared among apps. Developers increasingly allow their programs to communicate with other apps, sensors, and Web-based services, which are promoted as features to potential users. However, health apps also routinely pose risks related to information leaks, information manipulation, and loss of information. There has been less investigation into the kinds of user data that developers are likely to collect, and who might have access to it. Objective: We sought to describe how consumer data generated from mobile health apps might be distributed and reused. We also aimed to outline risks to individual privacy and security presented by this potential for aggregating and combining user data across apps. Methods: We purposively sampled prominent health and fitness apps available in the United States, Canada, and Australia Google Play and iTunes app stores in November 2015. Two independent coders extracted data from app promotional materials on app and developer characteristics, and the developer-reported collection and sharing of user data. We conducted a descriptive analysis of app, developer, and user data collection characteristics. Using structural equivalence analysis, we conducted a network analysis of sampled apps’ self-reported sharing of user-generated data. Results: We included 297 unique apps published by 231 individual developers, which requested 58 different permissions (mean 7.95, SD 6.57). We grouped apps into 222 app families on the basis of shared ownership. Analysis of self-reported data sharing revealed a network of 359 app family nodes, with one connected central component of 210 app families (58.5%). Most (143/222, 64.4%) of the sampled app families did not report sharing any data and were therefore isolated from each other and from the core network. Fifteen app families assumed more central network positions as gatekeepers on the shortest paths that data would have to travel between other app families. Conclusions: This cross-sectional analysis highlights the possibilities for user data collection and potential paths that data is able to travel among a sample of prominent health and fitness apps. While individual apps may not collect personally identifiable information, app families and the partners with which they share data may be able to aggregate consumer data, thus achieving a much more comprehensive picture of the individual consumer. The organizations behind the centrally connected app families represent diverse industries, including apparel manufacturers and social media platforms that are not traditionally involved in health or fitness. This analysis highlights the potential for anticipated and voluntary but also possibly unanticipated and involuntary sharing of user data, validating privacy and security concerns in mobile health.

          PHL14/352: The Impact of Electronic Health Information and Computer-mediated Communication for the Coping Abilities of Cancer Patients   
INTRODUCTION: World wide-based Information services are providing an increasing variety in information concerning practically every aspect of prevention, health promotion and treatment for patients, their families and care providers. For the case of cancer, a well-established information and communication infrastructure for an English speaking audience has been developed over the past years. METHODS: Our work has focused on an extensive literature review, identifying publications on the impact of the use of electronic information and communication platforms of the Internet by cancer patients, their families and care providers. RESULTS: Patients mainly log on to major services to receive background information about their particular disease or general introductions about the nature of cancer. The question of how much patients' ability to access to more information about their disease really effects their quality of life is still open. A randomised controlled trial showed that patients appreciated receiving more written information on cancer, although this did not increase their knowledge about cancer. Besides following their wishes or needs to inform themselves via the WWW, patients use more often email and newsgroup bulletin boards for communication. These bulletin boards also function as screening agencies for cancer news. Questions concerning the treatment of cancer and its effects on the family are reported as the most helpful topics on those lists. The three major dimensions of communication goals in online discussion groups can be identified as follows: a) exchange of information, b) social support and c) personal empowerment. These findings are similar to the communication structures identified for face-to-face groups. However, there are indications for some differences between traditional and virtual self-help (VS): more people are involved in VS; VS is open not only for patients but for their families, care providers as well as for involved professionals; VS is accessible around the clock and from every place. DISCUSSION: At this point of time, we can only estimate the importance of the Internet for health communication and health promotion. However, it appears that the Internet is a large information resource as well as a potential support network for patients and their families. In virtual groups, the distance-intimacy-relation seems to be easier to control. Furthermore, membership is independent from regional circumstances and patients with very rare kinds of cancer are able to find peers. The latter leads to the question if VS is particularly attractive to difficult-to-reach patient groups and if it will enhance their access to important resources such as social support. The process of coping with cancer itself seems to be very well supported by such new non-traditional electronic support networks, as long as they fulfil the functions of a community. Some basic problems, concerning the quality of information and the reliability of medical advice available through email, are not yet solved.

           Nokia To Supply Shanghai Oriental Pearl Group With Advanced Wireless Networking Technology For Smart City Services    
Friday 30 June, 2017
Nokia to deploy LTE in 700 MHz band to support smart city and public safety applications in Hongkou district of ShanghaiNokia's first commercial LTE 700 MHz contract in China intended to make city services smarter in fast-growing area of China's largest city

30 June, 2017

Shanghai - Nokia is to supply a LTE network in the 700 megahertz spectrum band to the Shanghai Oriental Pearl Group, a diversified broadcasting, media, manufacturing and real estate company. The deployment will transform Shanghai's fast-growing former industrial district of Hongkou through a range of new smart city services, for which Nokia will supply advanced wireless communications based on FDD-LTE technology for smart city and public safety applications. Nokia Shanghai Bell, Nokia's JV company in China will provide the deployment and services.

The LTE network is being deployed to provide broadband connectivity for city services, specifically high-speed wireless links to video from cameras used for traffic control, video monitoring and analysis, and additional services in future. The network is based on Nokia's FDD-LTE solution and offers the data capacity needed to support a variety of bandwidth-intensive video formats, including high-definition and ultra-high definition 4K, 3D and more. This deployment marks Nokia's first for LTE technology in the 700 MHz spectrum band in China.

In addition to network infrastructure, Nokia Shanghai Bell's global services team will provide services including systems integration, network planning and implementation.

The project builds on Nokia's strong track-record supporting smart city initiatives worldwide. It also highlights the progress of Nokia's strategy of expanding its customer activities outside of the traditional telecommunications sphere, a key focus of the company.

Ding Yong, General Manager of Oriental Pearl Digital TV, said: 'Nokia has been an excellent partner for these new smart city initiatives. Their LTE 700 MHz technology performed extremely well in testing and the strong local support from Nokia Shanghai Bell has been very beneficial as well. We look forward to our continued close cooperation to bring smart city services to the people of Shanghai.

Jin Jian, head of Enterprise & Public Sector at Nokia Shanghai Bell, said: 'This collaboration with Shanghai Oriental Pearl Group is an important first step in efforts to bring smarter services to China's largest city and critical business and innovation hub. As a leading provider of wireless connectivity solutions, Nokia is honored to play a key role in such an important project.'

Key facts:

LTE currently serves more than two billion subscribers globally today and is expected to reach 75% of the world's population by 2020.Low frequency bands, such as the 700MHz, allow for excellent coverage with a reduced number of base stations.With technology enhancements, LTE not only serves mobile broadband users but also delivers efficient and reliable connectivity for the Internet of Things and critical applications needed for public safety networks.

          Protecting Seniors Online from Scams, Hacks and Tax Fraud   
Five words or less(NewsUSA) - The vast majority of seniors today are using the Internet at least once a week to check email, pay bills online and keep in touch via social media. But all that time online puts them at risk for scams and hacks, such as tax fraud. In fact, a new survey by Home Instead, Inc., franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care network, found that 67 percent of surveyed older adults have been the victim of an online scam or hack. Encouraging seniors to practice cyber security can go a long way toward protecting their identity and sensitive financial information. Home Instead collaborated with the National Cyber Security Alliance to create Protect Seniors Online, available at www.ProtectSeniorsOnline.com, a free resource that educates older adults about cybersecurity. Here, seniors can test their cybersecurity skills with the "Can You Spot an Online Scam?" quiz. Older adults can take the following steps now to protect themselves online: *Password protect and secure devices, accounts. Lock all devices (including computers, tablets and smartphones) with secure passwords in case devices are lost or stolen. *Think before clicking. When faced with an urgent request -- like emails asking for money -- think before clicking or get a second opinion. Clicking on links is often how scammers get personal information. When in doubt, trash an unusual message. *Share with care. More than half (51 percent) of seniors surveyed by Home Instead use social media to stay connected. Use care when sharing personal information, adjust privacy settings to limit who can see your information, and turn off location sharing. *Use security software. Install anti-virus and anti-spyware software and program it to run regularly. And be wary of pop-up ads or emails, many of which contain malware that can infect computers. *Log out. Log out of apps and websites when you are finished. Leaving apps and websites open on computer screens could make you vulnerable to security and privacy risks. *Recommend support. Older adults who live alone may need help from a trusted source -- such as a family member, tech-savvy friend or professional caregiver --to serve as a second set of eyes.

          Encryption Technology for Your Privacy   
Five words or less(NewsUSA) - Sponsored News - Encryption and controversy seem to go hand in hand lately in the technology community. Case in point: When The FBI sought to compel Apple to assist in unlocking a cell phone in the case of the San Bernardino shooter last December. Ultimately the FBI was denied its request by a California district court. This type of technology can be a gray area, yet one that tech companies take seriously. On the one hand, the government insists it needs access to technology in which crimes have been perpetrated, noting that encryption also allows terrorists to communicate in ways that agencies can't track -- all the while, using encryption to secure its own communication. Privacy advocates argue that if the government is using it, private citizens should be allowed to as well, without prying eyes looking over their collective shoulder. To that point, one company that has come down firmly on the side of citizens and their right to privacy is VirnetX. The software and technology company said it believes in personal privacy and that strong encryption is imperative in protecting those rights. VirnetX has been so focused on providing secure communications using encryption that it designed an app called Gabriel. Gabriel uses encryption technology derived from a CIA national security project, and is one of a kind. "Gabriel has been designed and built with personal privacy and security as a foundational principle," says Dr. Robert Short, VirnetX chief technical officer and chief scientist. To that end, the program currently provides uncompromising data security, which means that users do not have to transmit data to, or store data with, any third party, including VirnetX. Users can therefore have peace of mind that their data is stored only on their devices, be it phone, tablet or computer. Gabriel is a product unto itself and can be found in Apple's App store, the Google Play store or gabrielsecure.com. This set of integrated applications allows for secure messaging, secure voice and video calling, secure mail and secure file sharing -- all encrypted. Other benefits to using Gabriel's encrypted apps include: * Making free voice or video calls or sending instant messages to other Gabriel members in your network. * Receiving spamless email. * Allowing for person-to-person messages that disappear once the session has ended. * Sharing pictures or files that can't be intercepted. Gabriel transmits person-to-person with end-to-end encryption to further eliminate hacking possibilities. For more information or to download Gabriel, go to www.gabrielsecure.com.
          Think Your Data is Safe? Think Again   
Five words or less(NewsUSA) - Sponsored News - No matter who you are or what business you are in, you're vulnerable to a cyber attack. That's the unfortunate reality of the times we live in. Think you're immune? There are millions of cyberattacks in the United States every year, with big companies like Home Depot, Adobe Systems, Sony, Citigroup, Target, Facebook, Evernote and The New York Times taking the biggest hits and falling victim. And like Fortune 500 companies that seemingly have the resources to battle data breaches, small businesses are just as exposed, if not more so. According to a Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report more than 70 percent of the businesses in the study that were breached had fewer than 100 employees. Those breaches result in huge losses. Trend Micro found that "cybercriminals steal as much as $1 billion a year from SMBs in the United States and Europe, alone." Which begs the question: If both large and small companies and the U.S. government can be compromised (even with security protocols in place), then what does that mean for individuals? It's a question that Dr. Robert Short, chief technology officer and chief technical scientist of VirnetX, struggled with and finally answered in the form of Gabriel, a set of secure encrypted communication apps derived from a CIA-sponsored Department of Defense project. "The genesis of Gabriel really was trying to solve the problem of how you make security transparent to the user. The means to automatically create a secure connection whenever a secure connection is needed to wherever it is needed, and create it on demand," says Short. "That has always been the vision behind Gabriel." The difference between Gabriel and other products, says Short, is that users do not have to transmit data to or store data with any third party, including VirnetX. In this way, data is stored only on their own devices. Essentially, users maintain control of their own data. Gabriel users also have secure, encrypted (spamless) email, text messages, free voice and video calls and picture or file share with other trusted Gabriel users in their network -- all directly from their personal device. Gabriel runs on iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows and Mac OSX. For more information or to download Gabriel go to gabrielsecure.com, the App Store or the Google Play store.
          New App Bridges Gap Between News and Social Media   
(NewsUSA) - We live in a digital world that is constantly evolving. Those of us who were born prior to the dot-com bubble were able to witness firsthand how technology transformed the way we lived our day-to-day lives. Then, in the early 2000s, the rise of social media forever changed how we interact with one another. Entire industries were forced to adapt to this new era. There is one industry that is still in the early days of its evolution: the news industry.A recent poll by the American Press Institute revealed that 85 percent of millennials say keeping up with the news is important to them. With growing millennial interest and the recent increase in digital news consumption, it's no surprise that some of the biggest social media companies are trying to break into the news industry.This new frontier of digital media has companies like Facebook, Snapchat and Twitter racing to apply the news to their existing platforms. The truth is, the news needs a platform of its own.Enter Rantt, the social network for news. This startup aims to inform and inspire the masses.Zak Ali, co-founder and CEO, believes the recent surge of people engaging with the news online has created a new genre: social news."When you read a story that truly impacts you, one that you can't ignore, you feel the need to interact with it," he said.Backing Ali's assertion is a Pew Research poll that found 46 percent of people active on social networks have discussed a news-related issue or event. The problem, Ali said, is that the scattered nature of the Internet forces people to navigate among many different sources to read credible news stories and to share their opinions."Too often will you see really well thought-out posts buried beneath a mountain of unrelated content. Your voice matters. You shouldn't feel like a bystander while reading the news. On Rantt, you don't have to," Ali said.Rantt delivers the latest news from top news sources. By tailoring the feed to your interests, Rantt aims to provide only the content that's important to you. Not only can you discover news stories, you are encouraged to speak about them and publish pieces of your own."With Rantt," Ali said, "you aren't just reading the news...you are becoming a part of it."For more information, visit www.rantt.com to download the app from the Apple App Store.
          Making Cities Smarter With Connected Cars   
Five words or less(NewsUSA) - We live in an age of new mobility, where the landscape of our digital life is expanding and evolving at unprecedented speed. Wireless connectivity has spread from computers and smartphones to cars, homes and cities, and it's simplifying and improving our way of living. The rise of "smart" objects and machines powered by machine-to-machine (M2M) technology has been a huge catalyst for the Internet of Things -- a web of connected objects and devices that communicate with one another to make life easier. The automotive industry is leading the way forward with more than 23 million connected cars on the road today and projections for 152 million by 2020. Connected cars enhance our lives with rich services, including advanced 3D navigation, automatic emergency calling when accidents occur and always-on mobile WiFi. They can automatically exchange information with other smart objects, such as traffic lights, to help reduce road congestion and improve navigation. They can also direct drivers to the nearest open parking spot and turn on the heat and stereo system before arriving home. The possibilities are exciting and limited only by our ability to securely manage wireless service plans for the long life of vehicles and smart city solutions. Until recently, updating connected car systems was costly and time-consuming, requiring a visit to a dealership to change electronic components embedded under the dashboard. Consumers will soon be able to securely update wireless features and even add new vehicles or smart home devices to existing mobile service plans via a mobile device app or website visit. The new "on-demand connectivity" solution makes it much easier to adopt new technology or instantly take advantage of special offers without additional service contracts or monthly invoices. "In an increasingly connected world, it is vital to remove barriers for growth," said Gemalto Vice President Juan Lazcano. "On Demand Connectivity allows people to easily manage their connected devices while helping mobile network operators improve service offerings and customer loyalty. It's a win-win scenario." The best part is Gemalto's solution adds a layer of data security that ensures personal information is protected when service plan updates are made. This allows all of us to trust in the connected cars and smart cities of the future. For more information, visit www.gemalto.com/iot.

The manufacturing of FAKE NEWS from CNN, and it's all caught on hidden camera.
WATCH: Since the Inauguration, CNN has mentioned Russia 15,694 times. Here's why:


James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has struck again : This time, a senior CNN producer was caught on camera by one of O’Keefe’s investigators admitting that the network’s relentless bashing of President Donald Trump with the Russia scandal lacks proof.

“Could be bullshit. I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now,” the CNN producer, John Bonifield, said in a video O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released on Tuesday, when asked about his thoughts on the Russia investigation. “Like, we don’t have any giant proof. Then they say, well there’s still an investigation going on.

So, I just feel like they don’t really have it but they want to keep digging. And so I think the president is probably right to say, like, look you are witch hunting me. You have no smoking gun. You have no real proof.”

          From Cyborgs to Hacktivists: Postfeminist Disobedience and Virtual Communities   
by
Carolyn Guertin
2005-01-27

For many the term postfeminist might call to mind the vanilla pleasures of metrosexuality, webcams, online soaps, and blog culture, but, for me, a 40-something cyberfeminist scholar, curator and some time activist, the politically-minded feminist texts I work with are in fact dyed-in-the-wool postfeminist ones that occupy a different place on the postfeminism continuum from those more loudly-lauded, lighter confections. Usually given a bad rap by the media, postfeminism has been accused of being antifeminist, whereas it is instead what the next wave of second wave feminism has become. Its name is not a marker or movement that intends to imply that feminism is dead and gone, any more than Donna Haraway’s “postgender” and N. Katherine Hayles’ “posthuman” mean the death of those old shoes. As Ann Brooks puts it in Postfeminisms, “the concept of `post’ implies a process of ongoing transformation and change” (1). Postfeminism is that indicator that shows us the organism formerly known as feminism has grown into something far more complex than its liberal origins would lead us to expect.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, second wave feminism, which had spoken predominantly from and to a position of white middle class privilege, began to fracture to include a broader chorus of voices, classes, and races. Postfeminism or, more exactly, postfeminisms have expanded to include a multitude of situated perspectives within the context of postmodern thinking, and have swelled to embrace the new emphasis on what Michèle Barrett identified in 1992 (the year that the World Wide Web was born) as “fluidity and contingency” - features that are the trademark stock in trade of the cyber age. Barrett believed feminism’s paradigm shift to be the result of a new interest in culture that in turn gave rise to a whole new collectivity of subjectivities. It is no accident that this shift coincided with the advent of a technology that foregrounded networked communications. It was only a few years earlier, in the fledgling days of the personal computer back when the Internet was still a vehicle predominantly for hackers and technogeeks, that Haraway first articulated a politics of connectivity for women in the context of these new technologies. In her “Cyborg Manifesto” Haraway’s half-woman, half-machine revels in the confusion of body boundaries and fractures all sense of an originary unity or simplex gender through embracing the cyborg as a model: a being who revels in discursivity, multiplicity, hybridity, and perversity. As the Web has evolved, it has become something of a gene pool for creative explorations of sexualities, subjectivities and identities - and has proved to be as liberating for men as for women in that regard. Cyberfeminist scholar Sadie Plant even argues for the feminizing influence of technology in a connected age. Without a doubt, though, this new technology’s most important role has been that of facilitating communication.

 “cyberfeminism is post-feminist” (76) Cyberfeminism was born at a particular moment in time, 1992, simultaneously at three different points on the globe. In Canada, Nancy Paterson, a celebrated high tech installation artist, penned an article called “Cyberfeminism” for Stacy Horn’s Echo Gopher server. In Australia, VNS Matrix (Josephine Starrs, Julianne Pierce, Francesca da Rimini and Virginia Barratt) coined the term to label their radical feminist acts and their blatantly viral agenda: to insert women, bodily fluids, and political consciousness into electronic spaces. That same year, British cultural theorist Sadie Plant chose the same term to describe her recipe for defining the feminizing influence of technology on western society and its inhabitants.

-Judy Wajcman

Connectivity has been called the genius of feminism by theorist Robin Morgan (53), and this genius is being realized in electronic spaces and texts in more complex ways than in any other medium to date. Connectivity is the poster child of the postfeminist universe, which is why the first cyberfeminist collective, VNS Matrix, chose the image of the matrix - the cosmic womb - as its symbol The Australian collective VNS Matrix announced its inception with a rallying cry called the “Cyberfeminist Manifesto”:
__________
We are the modern cunt
positive anti-reason
unbounded unleashed unforgiving
we see art with our cunt we make art with our cunt
we believe in jouissance madness holiness and poetry
we are the virus of the new world disorder
rupturing the symbolic from within
saboteurs of big daddy mainframe
the clitoris is a direct line to the matrix
VNS MATRIX
terminators of the moral code
mercenaries of slime
go down on the altar of abjection
sucking the visceral temple we speak in tongues
infiltrating disrupting disseminating
corrupting the discourse/we are the future cunt
(http://www.obn.org/reading_room/manifestos/html/cyberfeminist.html)
__________
Its separatist nature bears a resemblance to philosophies put forward by hackers.
. Another cyberfeminist collective, the Old Boys’ Network, defined its local chapters as “nodes” that “collide, disintegrate, regenerate, engage, disembody, reform, collapse, renew, abandon, revise, revitalize, and expand” (OBN FAQ 7). These structural and mechanical concerns are not accidental. Postfeminisms do not inhabit a network; they are the network of feminist discourse in virtual space and they are at their best when they are helping to forge communities of practice. In its incarnation most familiar to ebr ‘s readers, the electronic, hyperlinked text is both a narratological structure and the means of navigation in space and time. In the webbed space of hyperlinked fiction, the pregnant gaps between the nodes are at least as important as the textual nodes themselves. The nodes exist in conjunction with the dynamic space of the journey and cannot be discussed in isolation. So with the newest literary forms of the postfeminist universe. They cannot be separated from the communities and material praxes that they both engender and nurture on and off the Web.

In the cyberfeminist corner of the postfeminist universe, girl gamers such as Brenda Laurel and Mary Flanagan immediately spring to mind; so too do techno-performers such as Laurie Anderson and Coco Fusco, and new media artists such as Mez or Olia Lialina, but the most important and distinctive Web-native postfeminist form is, I would argue, hacktivism. The term was first coined in 1998 The rallying cry of hackers has long been “information wants to be free.” to describe an emerging hybrid form that united the best attributes of peaceful social protest - activism - and tech-savvy online civil disobedience - hackerism The term “hacktivism” has been attributed to a Toronto-based hacker who goes by the handle of Oxblood Ruffin.. It is a solution-oriented form of political action that inserts bodies and media-based dissent into real time material concerns. It should not be confused with its adolescent and illegal cousins, cractivism - code cracking, vandalism, data blockades (DDos) and the loss of digital data - or cyberterrorism - acts and agents of wanton destruction including worms and viruses. One of its trademark features is that the Web cannot contain hacktivism’s flows, allowing it to spill out into the world in the form of political protest at WTO and G8 events, for example, and in books, pamphlets, net.art, and performance art.

Hacktivism as a praxis was born in December 1997 when Critical Art Ensemble Critical Art Ensemble has been very much in the news lately since one of its members, Steve Kurtz, a professor in the Department of Art at SUNY Buffalo, was arrested on 12 May 2004 and charged with bioterrorism under the American Anti-Terrorism Act. These trumped up and widely protested charges have resulted in the FBI appropriating CAE’s materials and equipment used for testing for the presence of genetically- modified DNA - the tools CAE uses in creating their political art. member and software engineer Carmin Karasic was so appalled by the events of the Acteal Massacre - 45 Zapatistas were murdered at the hands of the Mexican government - that she set out to create a Web interface that would perform political protest as an aesthetic act. Three other Critical Art Ensemble members joined her in forming a new collective they named the Electronic Disturbance Theatre. (The group’s name is drawn from the concept of civil disobedience first proposed by Henry David Thoreau.) Their electronic civil disobedience engine is named FloodNet; funded by RTMark and launched in September 1998, it is Karasic’s brainchild in her war against injustice. Filling the browser page with the names of the dead, this activism tool “would access the page for Mexico’s President Zedillo seeking bogus addresses, so the browser would return messages like “human_rights not found on this server” (Cassell). Unlike the attacks launched by cracktivists, no damage is done by this software agent. When the Electronic Disturbance Theatre alerts its “online activists to `commence flooding!’” they visit EDT’s website and click on FloodNet’s icon (Harmon). The software then directs their browser to the target, and cues the same page to load over and over again.

As a postfeminist work, it is no accident that FloodNet must function as a community-based performance:

FloodNet’s action only drew its validity from the number of people showing support. “It was only actualized through thousands and thousands of participants,” she remembers. “It was meaningless without the masses.” Popular support transforms a random act of vandalism into a show of presence, Karasic argues. “This is an important difference between the single hacker/hacktivist who takes down a server with a single script” (qtd. in Cassell).

Similar to the disruptive aestheticization of codework by the Dutch trio jodi.org, Karasic sees her collectivity interface as something more closely akin to “conceptual art” than to cyberterrorism (Harmon). No one and no data are harmed in these `attacks,’ but websites are effectively shut down while the protest is being transmitted.

Advancing human rights through the electronic media is also the purview of another collective, a cyberfeminist one called subRosa. It is currently comprised of Laleh Mehran, Hyla Willis, Steffi Domike, Lucia Sommer, and Faith Wilding. It was also formed in the fall of 1998 - around the same time that Karasic was vowing to respond to Mexican excesses with FloodNet. Donna Haraway was the first to identify science as one of the most insidious cultural forms women needed to address to regain control of their bodies; subRosa follows in that tradition. subRosa uses its art to critique “the relationships between digital technologies, biotechnologies and women’s bodies/lives/work” (Griffis). The goal of these hacktivists, akin to the Electronic Disturbance Theatre’s, is the creation of communities, what they call “female affiliations that respect difference and create productive projects in solidarity with others who are working on similar ones” (Griffis).

Embracing bell hooks’ definition of feminism as that which seeks to eradicate ideologies of domination (qtd in Griffis), subRosa undertakes projects of activism and public education on topics as wide-ranging as eugenics, Frankenfoods, stem cell and cloning research, and Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART). Seeing their purpose as a pedagogical one, they launch inclusive electronic campaigns, publish pamphlets and books, and travel out into (particularly third world) communities to perform their topical art. These are what they call resistant projects, tactical cyberfeminist ones, and situational information theatre: “As cyberfeminists and artists we are using the framework of participatory performance as an information theatre of pedagogical art that models various tactics for intervening and commenting on the seductive representations of the flesh machine” (subRosa). One of the keys to their successful distribution of information is their willingness to mix media and cross boundaries, producing their art and materials in a plethora of formats contextually situated for their audiences. Like FloodNet’s participatory form, subRosa’s mode of information distribution is reproducible, for it argues “[i]n the digital age, resistant cultural producers can embrace recombinance for subversive ends” (subRosa).

All of this may seem somewhat removed from the electronic book and literary traditions, but when postfeminisms meet the new media they encourage these kinds of pleasures in the confusion of boundaries between bodies, texts, technologies, politics, and cultures. In a hyperlinked age when the only true path through a text is a personal journey, the many roads of postfeminism show that comminglings of radical politics and material concerns are alive and well in both the virtual and real worlds. How effective these hacktivist actions are is difficult to measure, but they are remarkable as tools for global mobilization and peaceful protest. It is clear that they are very effective at allowing women’s voices to be heard.

          Keiko Kitagawa to be turned into the scapegoat if KimuTaku's HERO flops? (TouSpo)   

1: 声なき声に力を ★@\(^o^)/:2014/06/22(日) 13:05:38.32 ID:???0.net
Actress Keiko Kitagawa (27) will be appearing as the heroine in Fuji TV's new Monday-9 drama HERO which will start on July 14.

Takako Matsu previously played the role of the leading lady in HERO, where Takuya Kimura (41) plays an unorthodox prosecutor, in both the 2001 series and the 2007 movie, but passes on the title to Kitagawa this time around.

"Kimura and Kitagawa have already been together in a Monday-9 drama 4 years ago, in Tsuki no Koibito, so they're already familiar with each other. Kitagawa said that she didn't watch too much TV 13 years ago because she was busy with her high school entrance exam studies, but watched HERO religiously. She's actually happy to be part of this production." - (Fuji TV staff)

But there are also some concerns about this, as her previous project Akumu-chan The Mu-vie was a huge flop.
 "One of the biggest reasons for this is that it got crushed by the mega hit Frozen. Despite all the efforts they put into promoting the movie by casting Momoioro Clover and making Keiko Kitagawa join them in a time-exclusive unit "Kimo-Kuro Z", the movie still didn't do too well. Though you still cannot deny that Frozen had a hand in the results, Kitagawa has now been branded as 'an actress who cannot make people come see her at the movie house'." - (movie industry insider)

Kitagawa has already emerged into a star from her generation of young actresses, and is said that she potentially has 8.3% of ratings with her. But she was at 10.5% a year ago, so there's also this feeling that she's already past her prime.

"Actually, other TV networks and competing agencies are kinda hoping that Kitagawa brings with her that 'bad luck' of her flopped movie when she does HERO." - (showbiz production representative)

And it is also said that this drama with KimuTaku will have bearing on Kitagawa's future.

"Even Kimutaku, Mr. Ratings himself, hasn't been able to get the numbers recently. His drama Ando Lloyd on TBS last year averaged 12.78%. This is a remake of a mega hit drama, so the passing mark will be about 18%." 

And if this drama flops, there's the danger that Kitagawa will be turned into the scapegoat.

"They say that this is the reason why Takako Matsu turned down the role, but it's not a rarity where they blame the actress when KimuTaku and other Johnny's talents dramas have bad ratings. When this doesn't do well, we can already see how people will start saying 'If only Matsu played the role instead...'. Kitagawa's actually been placed in a pretty tight spot."

Will they be able to produce a hit that has the ability to do away with all these doubts and concerns? People will now switch focus to Kitagawa's acting, as well as the drama's ratings.

I don't think that will be the case. KimuTaku's been repeatedly mass-producing dramas with low ratings.

KimuTako's the one who's been flopping. This drama was fun because of the exchanges between KimuTaku and Rerigo- *(Let It Go---Matsu). Are they stupid?

Nah, KimuTaku and Fuji Tv will definitely be at fault no matter how you see it. But Fuji really has no sense since they're not using the in-demand Matsu and Abe from Thermae.

キムタクドラマは数字が良いとキムタクの功績になり
数字が悪いと共演者と脚本のせいにされんだよなぁ。 キムタク以外の出演、スタッフには旨味がないな。

Was Karei naru ichizoku the last KimuTaku drama that had good ratings? Then it just went on a decline from there, right? If KimuTaku's drama ratings are good, it's thanks to KimuTaku. But if the ratings are bad, the co-stars and the screenplay take the stick. There's just nothing good out of this for the cast and the staff, everyone except KimuTaku.

だいたい破天荒っていうか非常識なだけだが、若いうちはまだいいけど、いつまで経ってもそんなだと現実のキムタクそのまんまで萎えるわ。 ついでに北川と吉高と桐谷はもう見たくない。

The moment Takako Matsu avoided this already signalled doom for this.
That eccentric and absurd character was good while he was young, but it's so unappealing if the current KimuTaku would still portray it that way.
And another thing, I don't want to see Kitagawa, Yoshitaka, and Kiritani anymore.

Akumu-chan's still running in cinemas so you can't really call that a flop. And instead of comparing between Kitagawa and Matsu, I think it makes more sense to compare Kimura's popularity then and now.

For all those people who think that Trump's tweets are brilliant at reaching the public and throwing his opponents off balance or whatever other bit of analysis used to show that somehow he's playing three-dimensional chess while the rest of the world can't even set up the checker board, is this really a set of tweets that makes you proud that he's your president?




These morning tweets follow other tweets touting ones supporting policy actions by his administration and the GOP. Does he think anyone will pay attention to any of that when he's tweeting comments on a morning show's appearance and the show's ratings? It's as if he's taken a master a class on self-sabotage.

Isn't he supposed to be in the middle of trying to help a GOP repeal of Obamacare?

Remember when conservatives ridiculed Obama interview talking to GloZell, the woman who is mainly known for eating cereal while sitting in a bathub of milk or going on Between Two Ferns? Well, was any of that less respectful of the office of the presidency than such tweets? I have come to regard Trump's tweets as a verbal expression of his id. That is the level he operates at and we get a glimpse at what impulses control him through Twitter. All his advisers urging him to focus on policy and presenting an image of gravitas are the ego trying to mediate between those impulses and reality. They might win out for hours, even days sometimes, but the id is there ready to take over.

There used to be a time when Republicans claimed that character mattered in the presidency. Today...not so much.

Canada thinks it can control the Internet.
The Supreme Court of Canada ruled against Google on Wednesday in a closely-watched intellectual property case over whether judges can apply their own country's laws to all of the Internet.

In a 7-2 decision, the court agreed a British Columbia judge had the power to issue an injunction forcing Google to scrub search results about pirated products not just in Canada, but everywhere else in the world too.

Those siding with Google, including civil liberties groups, had warned that allowing the injunction would harm free speech, setting a precedent to let any judge anywhere order a global ban on what appears on search engines. The Canadian Supreme Court, however, downplayed this objection and called Google's fears "theoretical."
Charles C. W. Cooke comments,
That amusing episode of The I.T. Crowd notwithstanding, “the Internet” is not a single black box somewhere in London, but a massively decentralized network of networks that, while conforming to a few agreed-upon technical specifications, gives new meaning to the word “diffuse.” Or, put another way, “the Internet” is a patchwork quilt of cables, satellites, switches, service providers, cell phones, desktops, laptops, web-servers, and protocols that, taken together, forms the sprawling web to which we are all so accustomed. The beauty of this arrangement is that anybody can participate. Want to be the next Facebook? To start with, at least, all you’ll need is a domain name, an internet connection, and a computer, and . . . that’s it. Though there are certain breakpoints (IP allocation, root DNS, etc.), there is no central permission structure that newcomers have to navigate. It’s open. It’s wild. It’s wonderful.

Now, this is not to say that censorship is impossible. It’s not. If a government wishes to block access to a particular site within the physical borders over which it has jurisdiction, it can do so. Likewise, websites and services that contradict local law can be legally removed, and, if it so wishes, a government can demand that any organization operating on a network within its borders must conform to its rules. What it can’t do, however, is export those judgments abroad.

Suppose that I, a permanent resident of the United States, were to host a website that contained speech that was banned in, say, Germany. Certainly, the German authorities could prevent Germans from seeing my site. And, if anyone chose to mirror my site on server inside Germany, they could shut that person down quite quickly. But they couldn’t have me shut down in America, and they couldn’t prevent people in other countries from accessing my site over the web. My server would be in America, connected to a network in America, subject to the law in America, and guaranteed the protections to which Americans are entitled. The German government, annoyed as it might be, would have to accept that....

And that, ultimately, is why the Canadian Court’s decision is so hilarious. I understand why people are worried about the idea — if taken seriously, it would give any less-free-than-America country an effective veto over the First Amendment. But they shouldn’t fret too much: The judges can say what they like, but their edict is simply unenforceable. If it wishes to do so, the government of Canada can prevail upon Google to abide by its rules within Canada. In addition, it can regulate the web in Canada to prevent access to sites it dislike. But it can’t force Google in America or France or Australia or Singapore to do a single goddamned thing. And thank goodness for that, eh?
I hope that he is correct, but we've seen the EU slapping a $2.7 billion fine on Google because the EU thinks it violates antitrust for Google to promote Google Shopping sites over other shopping sites. I'm not sure what there is about a FREE service like Google that the Europeans don't understand. Are European citizens actually hurt by Google giving them a free shopping search engine and then putting their items at the top? Would they prefer to pay for their search engines? Please, just keep your hands off Google. As more countries try and figure out ways to make money off of fining Google, they should consider the unintended consequences.
“The EU has effectively decided that some companies have become too big to innovate,” Robert Atkinson, president of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, a Washington-based think tank, said in a statement following the Google Shopping decision. “The EU’s actions have created a cloud of uncertainty that will make large tech companies overly cautious about making changes to the user experience and service offerings that would benefit consumers.”

Jonathan Tobin applies Occam's Razor
to explain why Obama didn't do more about Russia's attempts to interfere in our election last year.
But the real problem here is not so much Barack Obama’s failure to act as the most plausible reason for his inaction: Vladimir Putin’s capers didn’t impact the election results.
Despite the efforts by Democrats to blame Russia for Hillary Clinton's loss and their frustration that Obama didn't do more about it, there really is no evidence that the WikiLeaks revelations from John Podesta's emails had any effect on the course of the election.
But there’s a simpler, even more plausible explanation for Obama’s inaction: The president saw that the hacking was having almost no impact on the course of the campaign and thus wasn’t going to mess with the results. Far from the crime of the century, it was, at worst, a minor annoyance to Clinton that Obama obviously felt didn’t warrant a major dustup with Putin.

It’s true that Russia’s actions were outrageous and deserved a strong US response, both then and now. It can also be argued that the public had a right to know about it. But it was only after Clinton lost and she and her supporters began searching for excuses that Russia’s actions were considered an important factor in the outcome.

While Putin was way out of line, the impact of the WikiLeaks document dumps on Clinton’s candidacy was marginal at best.

The contents of the Democratic National Committee e-mails were embarrassing to Podesta and then-DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who wound up losing her job after proof of DNC collusion with Clinton against Bernie Sanders was produced. But there was almost nothing in those documents that related directly to Clinton, let alone being enough to influence voters.

Every WikiLeaks story was also almost immediately overshadowed by other, more damaging gaffes or revelations about Trump, such as his attack on a Gold Star family or the release of the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape. Nothing the Russians did matched the damage done by either of those Trump disasters.
Instead of looking for some external events or action, just admit that Hillary was a lousy candidate. That should actually be comforting to the Democrats. With such a compromised candidate whom so many Americans just never liked, they still won the popular vote and came really close to winning the states that put Trump over the top. If they can pick a better candidate in 2020, and can make an appeal for the voters they lost in the Rust Belt, chances are pretty strong that they'll win that year. They should be more concerned about forging a message that doesn't repel independents and those voters they lost in 2016. That's their real challenge and focusing all the time on Russia, Russia, Russia won't help them achieve that goal.


Good to know.
Tell your friendly environmentalist activist. But they're not really interested.
The benefits of fracking far outweigh its costs not only economically, but environmentally, a Stanford University geophysicist said Friday.

After teaching geophysics at Stanford for 30 years Mark Zoback took the helm of Stanford's new Natural Gas Initiative three years ago, he said, because of gas's environmental benefits.

"We did it because there were so many important and obvious environmental benefits to the utilization of natural gas," Zoback said. "So it’s somewhat ironic to be asked to argue for the notion that these benefits outweigh the environmental costs, when it’s the environmental benefits that got me into this business in the first place."

Zoback's remarks opened the annual debate at Stanford's Silicon Valley Energy Summit, and were swiftly challenged by representatives of the Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Defense Counci
Zoback argued that natural gas can replace coal and "dirty diesel" at significant scale throughout the world, supporting economic growth while slashing carbon emissions. (When burned, natural gas emits about half the CO2 that coal does).

The Senate has some really dumb rules. And the minority party can use them to slow everything down to a standstill. Chuck Schumer is taking advantage of every tool that the rules provide.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer used an upper chamber procedure Wednesday to block a national security briefing hosted by the Senate Judiciary Committee, irritating Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley.

The rule that Schumer had invoked, which he has been exercising the use of over the past two weeks, blocks Senate committee business from happening two hours after the Senate convenes session for the day. Schumer has consistently used the procedure as a way to delay business in Senate to make demands on Republicans on the health care bill.

The rarely-used tactic has cut short a committee hearing on free speech, stopped a hearing on Russian meddling in the U.S. elections and blocked a mark-up to advance bipartisan anti-human trafficking legislation....

Grassley had sent a joint letter with subcommittee judiciary chairman Lindsey Graham to the FBI Tuesday requesting all documents related to the FBI FISA surveillance requests on the Russia investigation.

“Today, the Judiciary Committee was set to hear from senior intelligence officials about highly sensitive intelligence gathering authorities that will soon require action from Congress. It’s disturbing and reckless for the Minority Leader to block the briefing. We’ve seen too many recent reminders of how unsafe the world is today. This is no time to play politics with our national security,” he said.
If they could use the nuclear option to get rid of a much more prominent rule concerning filibusters of Supreme Court nominees, why not use it to get rid of this stupid rule. If it's a "rarely-used tactic," no one except the angry members of the minority party will miss it.

I had so much fun last night. I'm visiting my daughters in D.C. and we went to the Nats-Cubs game. I haven't seen a live baseball game in about 50 years since I was a kid and we'd go to the Cubs games. So I scheduled my trip to catch the game. After falling behind in the seventh inning, I thought it was pretty hopeless for the Cubs based on the way they've been playing this year. But they rallied in the ninth inning to go ahead on a triple by Jon Jay. It was so exciting and I could celebrate with all the other Cubs fans in the stadium including a cute little girl, about 10 years old, sitting with her family of Cubs fans in front of me who told her parents that John Jay had written five of the Federalist Papers. Exactly right and the Cubs' Jon Jay was a hero tonight. Go Federalists!


What a blast! And then as walked out of the stadium and came back on the Metro and hear all the Nationals fans complaining about the Nationals' bullpen. Eh, they're still doing well. I'm just hoping that the Cubs are recovering their mojo. At least their closer, Wade Davis, another historically relevant name on the Cubs roster

          Silicon Valley's old boy power structure is getting toppled and the repercussions will be huge   

China slip fall soldiers

When Chris Sacca took the stage at the South by Southwest conference in March, the "Shark Tank" judge kicked off his talk by doling out cans of beers to the women sitting in the front rows. 

"We’re going to do this unlike Uber. The women get them first," Sacca said to the crowd of fans that would mob him like a celebrity afterwards. 

The beer stunt was a snipe at one of his early portfolio companies that had come under internal investigation for claims of sexism in the workplace. But now four months later, Sacca himself has issued a mea culpa, confessing that he "personally contributed" to making the tech industry "inhospitable for women" after being accused in a New York Times article of inappropriately touching a woman's face without her consent. (He later "disputed" the accusation.)

The apology from one of Silicon Valley's most visible and powerful venture capitalists comes at a time when the tech industry is confronting its shameful legacy of sexist behavior. It hasn't been a secret that women in technology face sexism, especially in venture capital where women only make up 7% of partners. But until now, the status quo went for the most part unchallenged and the offenders operated with impunity. 

That's why the events of the last few months are so remarkable. The stories of venture capitalists asking women entrepreneurs for sex or touching them underneath the table during pitch meetings have multiplied as more and more women come forward. And it's already having a profound effect. 

In the last month, Uber's CEO was asked to resign after a detailed investigation into harassment and bad behavior among employees and managers at the $69 billion startup. Another investor was forced out of his firm after initially denying accusations of sexual harassment from multiple women. 

Dave McClure, the leader of a famous Silicon Valley startup accelerator 500 Startups, was removed from the day-to-day operations after women came forward with allegations of misconduct. In one case detailed by the New York Times, McClure told a woman that he wasn't sure if he should hire her or hit on her.

Despite Silicon Valley being a place that's promoted itself as a bastion of progressive ideals and meritocracy, each domino being tipped shows that the sexism problem that had rooted itself in the boy's club of venture is worse and worse — and the old school boy's club of Silicon Valley is being toppled as a result.

The problem with power

The gender imbalance in Silicon Valley is well-documented, but the undercurrent of sexism and harassment that is its byproduct has been harder to pinpoint.

To be sure, some of the worst offenders have become "open secrets" among women entrepreneurs. There's wiki pages that list venture capitalists and tech leaders who have been accused of inappropriate behavior. And one startup accelerator, Y Combinator, keeps track of venture capitalists that have behaved badly — harassment or deal-wise — and cuts them out from ever getting a chance to invest as the startups leave its program. 

But it's tough to overstate the precarious path that must be navigated by any woman who wants to pursue the tech dream and create the next Facebook or Snapchat. 

Without having a deep network in Silicon Valley or getting into one of the accelerators, it's hard for women entrepreneurs to know who to avoid or have a support network to turn to if they feel like someone has crossed the line. Even if they do report it, they're often silenced or told to sign non-disclosure agreements so people never find out. 

Meanwhile, the men of Silicon Valley have continued to hold the power. Of the venture capitalist deal makers that fund the next generation of Facebooks, only 7% of the partners at top VC firms are women, according to a Crunchbase study.

And the money follows the same gendered lines. Women received $1.5 billion in funding last year versus $58.2 billion for men, according to PitchBook data. Just think, what kind of world-changing apps and tech products would we have today if women had the same opportunities and influence in the industry as men? 

Make no mistake: venture capitalists control the check books that can fund next America's innovation engine and too often it's been an old boys club that makes deals in hot tub jam sessions or all-male ski trips

The Trump effect

Yet the recent wave of women stepping forward after years of trying to shine light on the issue is finally crashing the power structure. 

Venture firms are scrambling to institute formal policies around harassment. LinkedIn founder and Greylock partner, Reid Hoffman, made a public plea for firms to sign the Decency Pledge to acknowledge that the relationship between venture capitalists and entrepreneurs is the same as a manager and employee. (Yes, Silicon Valley is at the point where its dealmakers are finally publicly promising to be decent to women.)

The public apology from Sacca shows that no venture capitalist can go untouched, no matter how famous or how many amazing deals they've done. In some ways, it's the opposite of the Trump effect: the President was elected despite being on tape saying lecherous things. To this day, he continues to call out reporters and women for their looks. 

Yet the general revulsion to those antics has made Silicon Valley somehow look at its own secret shame. It's harder for an investor to say they are outraged by Trump's treatment of women when they're protecting their own peers who have asked for sex or rubbed a woman's thigh when they're supposed to be making a business deal. 

And while some argue that Trump's behavior has normalized this kind of locker-room talk towards women, in Silicon Valley, its greatest offenders are now getting exposed one-by-one. Venture firms have collapsed. Uber, the most valuable private tech startup, is undergoing a cultural reformation to save its company. Individuals like Sacca are making public apologies for their role in making tech "inhospitable" toward women. The Silicon Valley people and companies in powerful positions aren't immune like Trump has been — and that's only been more clear as more women entrepreneurs speak out against what's been up until now Silicon Valley's darkest secret. 

There will be more dominoes that fall, and more "disruption," as the industry finally comes to terms with this problem. But when the dust settles, you can be sure that the startups, products, and innovation coming from Silicon Valley will be stronger than ever.

          Credit cards are going the way of fax machines

This is a preview of a research report from BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. To learn more about BI Intelligence, click here.

The modern smartphone is a remarkable device. A single device that fits in your pocket can do all the tasks that once required cameras, camcorders, GPS devices, watches, alarm clocks, calculators, and even TVs.    

But the next change might be the most radical of all—it could eliminate the need to carry cash and credit cards. 

The growing importance of the smartphone as the go-to computing device for every digital activity is having a profound effect everywhere you look, but it’s only the biggest story among many exciting developments in the world of payments:   

  • Apple Pay was first out of the gate, but now mobile wallets are everywhere you look—Android Pay, Google Pay, Chase Pay and even Walmart Pay are making smartphones a real alternative to carrying credit cards. And the potential for mobile wallets to limit a merchant’s fraud liability could help them really take off in acceptance for small businesses.   
  • As consumers move more purchasing online, gateway vendors that can act as a front-end processor for online businesses are seeing explosive growth.   PayPal-owned Braintree grew 111% YoY in the number of cards on file in Q4 2015, while Stripe and Klarna now have multi-billion dollar valuations.
  • Mobile Point-Of-Sale (mPOS) startups like Square and ShopKeep have pioneered a whole new payments niche—accepting payments via tablets and smartphones.   Coupling their transactions capabilities with new apps can revolutionize a small business’ inventory management, marketing, loyalty and even payroll.   
  • Mobile Peer-to-Peer payments in the U.S. are forecast to grow from $5.6 billion in 2014 to nearly $175 billion by 2019 as consumers increasingly skip the hassle of writing a check or going to an ATM.   But smartphone vendors like Apple could cripple the dominant player of 2016 (Venmo) if they make a serious push to own the space.   

If your job or your company is involved in payment processing in any way, you know how complex this industry is. And you know that you simply can’t understand where the next big digital opportunities are unless you know the key players and roles in each step of the payments “supply chain:”   

  • Acquirers
  • Processors
  • Issuers
  • Card Networks
  • Independent sales organizations and merchant service providers
  • Gateways
  • Hardware and software providers

Fortunately, managing analyst John Heggestuen and research analyst Evan Bakker of BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service, have compiled a detailed report that breaks down everything you need to know—whether you’re a payments industry veteran or a newcomer who is still getting a basic knowledge of this complex world.

368896817

Among the big picture insights you’ll get from this new report, titled The Payments Ecosystem Report: Everything You Need to Know About The Next Era of Payment Processing:

  • The 5 key events of 2015 that have set up 2016 as a watershed year for the entire payments ecosystem. 
  • The basics of traditional card processing from the start of the process through to the very end.    
  • Why new players and innovations like prepaid cards, store cards, and PIN debit transactions are gaining market share and creating new opportunities.   
  • The effects—good and bad—of the transition to new mobile payment methods.   New players and old have surprising threats and opportunities in areas as varied as carrier billing, remittances, wearables, and more.   

This exclusive report takes you inside these big issues to explore:

  • The critical steps in credit card transactions and how they are changing.
  • The six major types of organizations involved in the payments ecosystem.
  • The significant differences for industry players who operate closed-loop networks and offer prepaid cards.
  • The challenges and opportunities facing hardware and software providers for the payments sector.   
  • The 8 reasons why mobile wallets are growing so fast and how they will disrupt all aspects of the mobile ecosystem.    
  • The exciting possibilities ahead in fast-growing payments subsectors like remittances, connected devices and mobile P2P payments.   
  • And much more.

Mika Peck, a conservation ecologist at England's University of Sussex , was frustrated. He'd been researching and publishing papers for years on the near-extinction of the Ecuadoran brown-headed spider monkey, and not much was happening to change the primate's extremely threatened status. Not much, that is, until he started connecting the monkeys to gourmet chocolate. Both monkeys and cacao flourish in the Chocóan rain forests of northwestern Ecuador (el Chocó)­, part of a rain forest network that runs along the Pacific Coast, from Panama to Peru. El Chocó is home to about two-thirds of the brown-headed spider monkey population, but that population is dwindling. The environmental group Rainforest Trust estimates that there are only about 250 brown-headed spider monkeys left on the planet, making them among the most endangered primates ever recorded. That's because locals in this remote region, trying to earn a living over the past few decades, cut down the trees for lumber that the

          Best Ways to Use Social Networks in the Market   

Guest Post Disclaimer: The opinions and knowledge posted in this article is solely of the guest author.

Because social networks are cost effective and easy to focus, more and more businesses and individuals are focusing too much on social networks to publicize their business products and services. But the main problem here is– most businesses are relying on ineffective tactics to market their products to social networks. The following guide explains you the best ways to use social networks to market.

Best Ways to Use Social Networks in the Market

Avoid Quantitative Approach in Having Social Media Presence

Most people believe that having too many social networks for their business help in receiving lots of website visitors, but this may not fetch you good result since you need to have a continuous online presence on this networking site to benefit from it.

Investing in Online Marketing

Secondly investing online marketing should be done very carefully because you must make your investment only where there is a scope of getting higher ROI. You should be able to minimize your risk associated with your investments. Finally, to get good results you should not completely rely on social networks.

When to Start?

If you are looking to take advantage of promoting your business on social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, Tumblr and so on then before opening your business account in these social platforms, determine whether you are able to manage all these accounts at a time, only then start your social marketing.

Choose Best Platform

Investigate which platform can support to communicate with your existing and potential customers. And then try to build strong relationship with your customer by understanding their needs and what they want from you.

Post Articles

Post articles on social sites and your website; include relevant information on your products or services in the post that you write to market. To make your post social friendly, you can also include a short author bio at the end of every post and give a backlink to your social profile.

Add People

Try to add more people into your social networking sites, know the people who are interested towards your business products and services.

B2B Marketing

Join various forums and you can even take advantage of B2B marketing sites to share your ideas and to provide advice on problems and answering any questions of your site readers.

Promote

Promoting only your website and looking for people to read your message is not good, you should also visit networking profiles of other people who are connected with you and read their blog or posts.

Respond

          Analysis of Direct Traffic in Google Analytics - Understanding Direct Traffic in Web Analytics   

When you see abnormally high direct traffic in Google Analytics or other web analytics tools, then there is not much you can do, since most direct traffic is only shown as a number of views. With search engine and referral traffic, it is pretty easy to find out what happened. But it becomes quite hard to understand what really happened behind direct traffic.

Analysis of Direct Traffic in Google Analytics - Understanding Direct Traffic in Web Analytics

Referred visitors come through search engines and referring sites. And Web Analytics Solutions like: Statcounter, Google Analytics, Awstat, etc. can provide you good insights in understanding the behavior of your visitors as well as the performance of your online marketing campaigns. However, direct visitors may not be a strange phenomenon. It can also be the karma of your direct marketing effort, online branding, email marketing, and it may also result from returning visitors to your site. If you see any abnormal direct traffic then you should understand that the direct traffic is coming as a result of:

  • Email Links,
  • Bookmarks,
  • Offline pages loading web analytics script or
  • People typing your site’s address in the browser, etc.

Direct Traffic from Email Links

Email clients like: Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, Thunderbird, and other POP or IMAP Mail Client Softwares generate Direct Traffic. Some assumptions of abnormal direct traffic from emails can be:

  • The direct traffic from emails can be the result of your specific marketing campaign. Usually during various occasions, like: Christmas, New Year, etc, many businesses air email marketing campaigns. During the campaign almost all corporations send greetings to their stakeholders. These include customers, suppliers, well wishers, etc. Sometimes it’s not about a single campaign. Your employees can run multiple spontaneous campaigns across channels. In those cases, the visitors’ click on the links located in the email can result in direct traffic to your site.
  • If an affiliate marketer is campaigning for you, then that is a good thing. However, you should allocate different and distinguishing mechanisms that can tell you an affiliate marketer is responsible for that. Otherwise, you may be depriving the affiliate marketer as well.
  • However, if you or your affiliate marketers are not responsible for the emailing campaign, then it may not be a good sign. Because, people may be saying bad things about your site or business and you may not know it. So it would be wise to investigate if someone is doing that. Google Alerts on your business name can help a lot to understand what is happening.
  • Sometimes you might have ads, highlights or mentions published in other corporate newsletters. When they are circulated, please remember that they may not be read at the specific date of circulation. So, throughout the week, you might have visitors coming in at their convenient time.
  • This direct traffic phenomenon can also result from sudden increase in sales and customer support activities. When you have a large pool of sales and customer support executives for your business, they send out many emails throughout the day. And from these sales & support emails, people may also end up on your site. This happens when the sales and customer support people send deeper links.

Direct Traffic from Bookmarks

Bookmarks are the simplest type of reference to your site. Just to define it: Bookmarks are stored links in your computer, either in internet browser or files that automatically generate URL for your browser. So, any content that automatically generates URL for your browser will be a bookmark. Most of the Web Analytics tools can’t differentiate the source of the clicks from stored links. However, they should be more valuable to you, since they are mostly returning visitors. The links from bookmarks mean your marketing campaign efforts are maturing into sales. Bookmark visitors can come through the following types of bookmarks:

  • Lot of people bookmark your site in their browser when they find a site interesting or they think that it might be useful in future. They store it in their browser, which end up as link files in “Favorites” folder. It also comes from custom links pasted in any toolbar, like the bookmark panel in Mozilla Firefox. These bookmarks are stored as very light weight link files.
  • The link to your site from a stored webpage can also be treated as Bookmark. People may also come from pages saved in their computer that contains a link to your site. In that case, it might be a referred visitor. However, some computer blocks the reference. In that case, it will be direct traffic.
  • Bookmark links may also reside in other types of files than HTML webpages. e.g. PDF, DOC/DOCX, XLS/XLSX, etc. These files provide links for your visitor to open the internet browser and go to your site. So visitors can end up in your site by clicking links in those files as well. And most of the Web Analytics systems can’t differentiate this type of link and treat it as a bookmark.
  • Bookmarks can also come from links in softwares. e.g. When you visit the About Window from the “Help” menu of any software, you can find link to their website. Again, many types of software also generate automated URL for the browser to visit. e.g. Customer Feedback form when you uninstall a software.

Direct Traffic from Offline Pages

Most Web Analytics Systems try to load a remote visible or invisible image into your visitors’ computer through the browser. These remote visible or invisible images are customized image that work as your identity. Web Analytics Systems provide some sort of codes (usually as Java Scripts) that generate the command to load these images. It may not always be the case that the codes will come from webpages located your servers aka your website. The visitors can also come from other sources such as stored webpages of your site in their hard disks. Often if the Web Analytics code is in a blank page, it’ll still show the visitor. However, now most Web Analytics Systems show them as referred visitors by showing the exact location from the computer (e.g. C:\Documents%20and%20Settings\You\My%20Documents\My%20Site\index.htm). Often many computer blocks this reference system for external servers. It is then; the visitors are treated as direct visitors. In case, if the Web Analytics Systems can’t recognize or block the reference, the offline stored pages direct visitors can come through various ways, like:

  • Someone extensively worked on your site for redesigning. Usually, when a webmaster loads the page in FrontPage, Dreamweaver, or other Web Design Software, the Java Script of Google Analytics is also loaded (if Java scripts are NOT turned off). It’s not unusual if you see that the hits are coming from various IPs. Webmasters using Proxy Servers can make their IP change from time to time. Again, the same webmaster may be working in different computers (perhaps in his laptop). Or people can be working as a team for various functions for your site. This action can generate abnormally huge traffic, since the site development work is done. The best way is to block this is by using visitor filters using their specific IP address.
  • Imagine the same case, but this time the webmaster is designing the new site for your competitor by stealing your content or theme. So, each time they are modifying your site, we can get direct traffic. And if you have not been working for your site, then there is very much possibility that someone is piggybacking on your content or theme.
  • However, looking at things in the eye of a pessimist is not always necessary. Someone may have found your contents very interesting and saved your page in their computer. This is good news if the visitor saves your site for future reference to generate sales for you.
  • Many businesses that does data-mining for other businesses may want to save your page for business purpose.
  • Again some student or researcher may also like your content so much that they would want to use them in offline or online versions. It’s always good to have contents for researchers and student to get links from .edu or .org sites.

Direct Traffic from Typing in Address Bar

Direct visitors also come from deliberate typing in the address bar of the Internet Browser. If they are doing that, then you have established your site as a brand in the mind of the visitors or your offline marketing campaign is a hit. A lot of people don’t come to Yahoo, Google or Bing through bookmarks or any reference. They really type the site name in the browser and press Enter or Ctrl+Enter. The search engine and referral traffic for these giant sites are rare. Every site actually strives to achieve this. Again, if your are running an offline marketing campaign, then the best way to go to your site after seeing an ad, is by typing the URL in the browser. There are thousands of reasons for this type of visitor typing URL in browser. However, here are some of them:

  • Make sure if your business or site has been highlighted in any newspaper, magazine or any other popular print media. So the news readers were typing the web address and making direct hits. Try to know if any article on your site was published in any daily newspaper. But that generates traffic for one day and consequent days have a bit low level of traffic. If you have traffic coming in throughout the week, then it might be published in a weekly magazine. So based on your traffic pattern, you can understand what happened.
  • You may have also paid for advertisement in local/national dailies or magazines. However, you might have forgotten the date they will be publishing your ad. Another way to say it is: you may have paid some parties earlier and forgot when they will publish it.
  • Viral Marketing can also influence typing of URL. Viral Marketing is a type of contagious marketing technique that spreads the news, contents, video, audio, etc. When you find a video that you liked, you would want to forward it to your friends and they forward it to their network. This goes on and creates a virally infected network that knows the news. If the spread information is in video, audio or any other format from where you can’t extract text or automatically generate URL, then there is no other way than just typing the URL.
  • Like Viral Marketing, “Word of Mouth” through traditional and social media also can influence the spread. The only media that “Word of Mouth” uses is the mouth or words of people, their comments, findings, excitement, etc.

The possibilities of Direct Visitors are endless. But, Web Analytics tools provide you insight to only a number, not the overall insight on what actually happened. So, it is up to you to investigate what has happened. The abnormal increase in traffic may not always be good news. So, it is always wise to watch out.

          Billboard-based Internet Marketing Campaign and Tracking & Measuring ROI   

Placing an advertisement on a billboard in a high traffic area will surely bring results. Measuring it however, can be a tough job. For each marketing campaign, measuring performance is crucial. Measuring the efficiency of a advertisement depends on 2 things:

  1. Clickthrough Rate (CTR) and 
  2. Return on Investment (ROI). 

CTR

For a billboard, Clickthrough Rate refers to the percentage of the desired action from impressions. Unless eye and camera tracking technology improves, it is not possible to monitor the clickthrough rate for a billboard.

ROI

However, monitoring the return on marketing investment or ROI from a billboard is very much possible - If you know your traffic sources. But, to ensure the tracking and measuring ROI of a billboard you have to turn it into an internet marketing campaign involving call to action using internet technology.

Hire us for Interactive Marketing - How to Turn Your Billboard into Interactive Marketing Campaign

If you invest in Billboard Advertising, then you can take some initiatives to make your display more interactive while effectively measuring it’s ROI. viz.

Using a Landing Page URL

A website on your billboard is good for marketing and branding but does not allow you to properly measure ROI from multiple campaigns that direct on your domain. The best way to measure ROI, is referring to an alternate URL, one that does not disturb your expected web traffic. For the URL, you can:

  • Create a new isolated/orphan landing page on your site (make sure it is blocked from search engines and not used in other web marketing campaigns)
  • Purchase a new domain and refer the billboard visitors to that site (you can also make it redirect to the landing page on your site or just use URL masking or use frames/iframes)
  • Use the existing landing page with parameters built by Google URL Builder (it allows you to see custom reports in web analytics from ad variations reports)
  • Use an easy to read bit.ly shortened link. bit.ly specifically delivers analytics that you can use to measure traffic from your advertisement. Other URL Shortener Services that supply analytics will work just as well.

The URL visits can be easily tracked with Google Analytics or any other Web Analytics application. This gives the campaign transparency and allows for high ROI visibility. The URL you refer on the billboard should be easily readable. Long URLs won’t typically generate action. Often, most conversions happen after the fact, so it is wise to help the readers remember your URL.

Using QR Codes

QR Codes have been around for long time, but the use of these 2-dimensional codes for Interactive Marketing is a new trend. It helps you to download information or generate a specific action on your mobile phone using widely available bar-code scanners. For the iPhone (Semacode), Android Phones (QuickMark), Blackberry (ScanLife), Symbian Phones or Nokia (UpCode) are among several competing apps that can read QR Codes from any printed media or digital screen. QR Codes are now being used for Internet Marketing, Mobile Marketing, and even Word of Mouth Marketing. With QR Codes, any camera-enabled smartphone users can:

  • Be referred to a specific URL
  • Get a phone number, allowing them to can call instantly
  • Download business cards to save on their phone and make calls at a later time
  • Get an email address and/or enable them to send emails from phone instantly
  • Be referred to a geographical location on Google Maps and help them to come to your place of business
  • Can be sent an event invitation, which can be saved in phone’s calendar
  • Be shown a text message (This can also be a coupon)
  • Get an SMS template to send queries to your business cellphone number
  • Gain access to your sponsored WiFi Network, etc.

The interaction with QR Codes are increasing day by day and steadily becoming the bridge between the real and virtual worlds. Determine the type of interaction that will deliver the best visibility of your ROI. There are many sites that allows you to generate QR codes (e.g. Zxing Projects QR Generator). A major service currently in use is the Google Chart API. Here is an article on how you can generate QR Codes in bulk with Google Chart API.

Bluetooth Advertising Near the Billboard

Bluetooth Adverts are the newest trend in mobile marketing. If your billboard is in convenient location, then you can send more interactive information and coupons to your billboard Bluetooth users. You can easily transmit richer content to your viewers. Moreover you can also digitally track the Bluetooth downloads.

Email Tracking

Email is one of the most convenient ways of communication, even on mobile devices. Make sure you have a different email address on the billboard than the one you use in other media campaigns. This will allow you to verify the emails you get on the allocated address are coming from billboard advert. If you incentivize people sending emails to that address e.g. with coupon, then you can also trigger the behavior of the billboard audience to send emails to the custom address rather than other addresses or web contact forms.

Using Call Analytics

HostedNumbers.com, AdInsight.eu, and Mongoose Metrics have call tracking services that you can be monitored from Google Analytics. However, there are several other call tracking and analytics softwares that your can use. They generate a unique phone number (even toll-free) that you can use on the billboard. When someone calls, you can see how much traffic came from your billboard advertisement and then use Google Analyitcs to see how long they were on the call. Again, it is imperative that this phone number is not made available elsewhere. There will always be a risk that word of mouth marketing will ruin your direct analytics. This information being shared is beyond your control.

Using Coupons

Coupons are one of the best ways to track where a customer has come from. You can mention an easily readable coupon code for all (e.g. gimme20%less) or generate a custom coupon code from any specific URL mentioned on the billboard. The URL can be a purchased domain, a landing page on your site, or a easily readable shortened link. This enables you to distinguish between regular web traffic and traffic from your billboard. Numerous softwares and online services will allow you to easily generate custom coupons through the URL. If you are sending the billboard reader to a URL with a custom coupon, it is recommended to have them visit a custom landing that is blocked from search engines. Once people use their coupons, you are able to retreive information on traffic sources using the database. It is imperative that you make sure that the coupon codes can be tracked. To get a true ROI on that particular segment of your campaign, ensure that it is not made available in other forms of media (e.g. search engine, word of mouth, etc).

          Find Professional References through Facebook   

So, you have a dream company you want to work in? You are constantly looking for people to connect with from your dream company. But, I hear a lot of people complaining that “I don’t have references to get a job there”. Well, if it was 5 years ago, that would be a fate you had to accept. But, at the age of Social Media, there is no reason in admitting it. So, if you don’t have any references or don’t know who you can connect to, then it is your fault.

Find Professional References through Facebook

You really can use social media like Facebook find professionals references for:

  • Job or career,
  • Business opportunity,
  • Joint venture opportunity,
  • B2B Networking,
  • B2B Lead Sourcing, etc.

Last time, I gave the idea (that I am also going to give you) to someone, he found that his sister-in-law (bother’s wife) had her brother-in-law (sister’s husband) working in the company he was seeking references for.

You are probably wondering how this is possible. To tickle your brain, here are some ideas:

  • You probably saw the “Find Friends” feature where Facebook suggests you to add more people that might be your friend
  • On each un-connected Facebook user’s profile you can see how much mutual friends you have
  • Each mutual friend has some kind of a relation with that specific user
  • You know that Facebook also suggest you to add colleagues working in same company
  • Now, what would happen if you could find people by company and also could see their mutual friends?

So, I think you got the idea.

Professional References from “Find Friends” with Other Tools Links

Getting your feet wet to find a professional reference is not quite easy. You have to apply certain tricks. You might have seen the find friend feature in Facebook. If not, then go to the URL mentioned in the image below:

Find Friends Link in Facebook

If you go to the page, you will see some list of other ways to find your some friend suggestions:

Find Friends Page in Facebook

If you click Other Tools, you also can see the options to search people by the companies you work in:

Other Tools Options on Find Friends Facebook Page

If you click on the link of the company, e.g. marked red in the picture (http://www.facebook.com/find-friends/browser/?type=work&id=102777693132451&ref=ff), notice that the URL has specific number (in bold). Now, if I take this number and use it after Facebook.com like this: http://www.facebook.com/102777693132451, it takes you to the Facebook Community or Fan Page of Grameen Solutions. But, the URL of the page looks like this https://www.facebook.com/pages/Grameen-Solutions/102777693132451. Now that you know the number trick, you can go on searching for people that are working in a specific company using http://www.facebook.com/find-friends/browser/?type=work&id=THE_PAGE_NUMBER.

This is not always so straight forward. First, you need to find all possible pages that are available in Facebook belonging to that company. The phenomenon of having many pages for the same company (in the image below) happen because, many people do not use the exact match spelling for the same company.

Grameen Solutions Facebook Pages Search

When you click the community pages (the page with briefcase icon), you will find the number of the page that you can use to search for professionals working in your desired company. But, some pages uses vanity URLs like: http://www.facebook.com/grameenphone. In that case, finding the number of the page becomes hard. But there is a trick. Go to the vanity URL page and right click and get the URL of any image on the page:

Right Click to Get Facebook Page Number from Page with Vanity URLs

e.g. from http://www.facebook.com/grameenphone if you right click and copy the location of the image, you’ll see that the location is https://fbcdn-profile-a.akamaihd.net/hprofile-ak-snc4/373042_135237519825044_132091699_n.jpg. The bold numbers you see in the middle of the image file name is the page number, which you can use to find other people from the same company. If you need to confirm if the number is real, then try to see if http://www.facebook.com/135237519825044 takes you to http://www.facebook.com/grameenphone.

Professional References from Find Friends Browser

Now, I might have made this a bit complicated, but the trick I mentioned above is the best way to find all possible people or connections that belong to your dream company.

However, there is also a shortcut way. Just go to http://www.facebook.com/find-friends/browser/ and in the employer section, search for the name of the company in all alternative spelling that people used. If the page is popular, after typing some text, Facebook will suggest you some name of the pages or companies. But, in cases where there are too less people in a company, you might not find that listed in the employer search suggestion. In that case, go back and use the previous trick again.

Find Friends Browser

Now, you have the list that shows you people that are working in a specific company. Even though, you still have a problem. Because, they are not your friends in Facebook. But, the mutual friends suggest that they are friends of any one or more of your friends. So, use the mutual friends to learn more about the person working in the company and use them to get introduced. If you have a healthy number of Facebook friends, then I am sure that you will find at least one distant relative in a large company. It was actually not much possible even 5 years ago. But, in the new age of social media, use the strategy to benefit you, your career, and your business.

Professional References from Existing Friend List

Oh sorry, one thing missed. What if you already had friends from desired company and want to see which friends are from that company? Then the best way to do it is by going to your profile and then to Friends from Facebook. At the top, like the image below, you can search friend by Workplace. Select that and start typing the name of your desired company. You will find friends that are connected to the company. 

Find Friends Working in Specific Company

One last thing, when you see the list of friend suggestions or the list of friends from a specific company, don’t guess that all of them are currently working there. Facebook tries to show all past and current workers in your suggestions. So, try to see their profile individually. Another thing is, you can get the maximum benefit from this trick, if you have a large number of friends in Facebook. So, be more open and helpful to others to make more friends in Facebook as well as in real life.

          LinkedIn Wishlist - Part I: User Generated Search Tags to Create Narrow Searching, Keyword Channels for Profiles, & Virtual Directory of Interest Groups   

This post is actually posted in February 04, 2008. Reposting the article here as a reference for my new upcoming article: LinkedIn Wishlist - Part II: LinkedIn Profile and Page Features.

LinkedIn Wishlist - Part I: User Generated Search Tags to Create Narrow Searching, Keyword Channels for Profiles, & Virtual Directory of Interest Groups

Dear LinkedIn,

Being an open networker, I always try to help my connection by forwarding relevant news, articles, resources, etc. in my network. To do so, I forward mails to the appropriate members in my network by searching them and adding them one by one. 

But, I think Other Filtering Option should be used to make the forwarding mails more useful by sending them to appropriate people. Currently, you can only filter by location and industry. But, there are many custom searches we can make in our contacts and group them as per our need.

Therefore, I would like to suggest User Generated Search Tags. Search Tag is similar to Blog Tags and Interest Group Tags in Blogger Profile. However this can be used to tag people with appropriate keywords. XING is already using this type of tags. You can actually use this tag for various purposes:

Search Tags for Narrow Searching

Use the tags for creating narrow search of LinkedIn connection. You can provide the tag option as narrow search for forwarding any mail. To create the tags, the users will do a people search and tick/check the appropriate people and write a tag for them. e.g. If someone searches for “SAP Developers” in people search, he will be able to choose by clicking on the check box on the basis of his judgment on the summary and then grossly mark the checked profiles with a generic tag, like “SAP Developers”. And when s/he wants to send mails to people within this search tag, s/he will be able to send it by choosing the tags defined by the user. Again, if anyone joins the network with similar People Search Attribute, then s/he will be automatically tagged.

Profile Tags for Keyword Channeling

You can use this User Generated Search Tags like XING, i.e. show it in their public profile. This will also automatically create Keyword Channels for the Profiles. This will enhance the Search Engine Rankings for each profile, since Google & other Search Engines like Keyword Channels (or simply Anchor Texts). You can also use Tag Cloud Option to show most popular tags in bold and least popular tags in plain text. I believe that Tags from people will actually represent what people are saying about you. And this will also allow members to top the Rank in People Search and establish them to stay ahead of the industry or Keyword Channel. If anyone is ranked 1st, 2nd or 3rd for the Profile Keyword Tag, then he can be rewarded with a badge. I believe that this will encourage people to promote their profile instead of their personal sites.

Tags for Virtual Directory of Interest Groups

If the tags are clickable tags, then you can virtually have Directories of Professionals channeled with Keyword Tags. Besides groups in LinkedIn, this will also create Virtual Interest Groups within LinkedIn, rather than an actual group. These tags can be further utilized for User Profile-based PPC Campaign like Facebook.

Update: This tags are more like the Google Plus Friend Circles that allows you to send updates to a specific types of people. When some one sends a Job notification for SEO Manager, it is pretty hard to find the right people and forward them the notification. If tags could be created through search, then people could have sent relevant message to the right people.

          Should SEO and PPC Marry Each Other, Date or Just Stay Single?   

SEO or Organic Search Marketing and PPC or Paid Search Marketing/Advertisement, both have same goal to get your site found through keyword search in varios search engines. So, is the goal so common that they should get married? Or should SEO and PPC date, or just stay single?

Should SEO and PPC Marry Each Other, Date or Just Stay Single?

What if SEO and PPC Get Married?

Let’s define marriage first:

Marriage is about mutual understanding and about the economy of utilizing the limited combined resources in an efficient way for better life, if not, better future.

Well, that’s not a perfect one, but in Economics, it should sound like that. If I translate that for corporate language than it would be this:

Mutual Understanding between SEO & PPC

If SEO and PPC are operating differently, then they are learning in different ways. This can mean doing the same homework over and over again. Not doing the homework separately is very healthy for the economy. That’s why we see the giant companies acquiring (or marrying) the small companies. So that, the homework is not done again in the same economy. Even though, the giants have the setup to do it all over again. But, that’s bad for the industry. You are increasing the competition without adding any value to the economy.

So, whoever the husband between SEO or PPC is, both of their understanding can help each other greatly. PPC can use the learning from SEO and vice versa to reduce marketing cost and increase ROI. Isn’t that what the companies and advertisers are looking for? With mutual understanding, they can mutually reduce their homework and add value to the economy.

Utilizing Combined Resources

Before marriage, you probably have been using a small blender for milk shake that served your single user need. But, after marriage you can afford a better blender, which costs less than 2 blenders alone. i.e. you can also cut the capital investment and cost if you have SEO and PPC together. Moreover, they also can interchange their duties to perform other important tasks for the growth of your business.

Utilizing Limited Resources

You definitely have a budget for your marketing, from which you can’t go beyond. So, you should economize on getting more sales with less money. Since you are in fixed budget for SEO, you can cutout the variable budget for PPC, when you have competitive advantage in organic results for a specific keyword. So, for PPC you can only explore the markets, where you don’t have competitive advantage on. That’s should make the great use of your limited budget. So, managing these in separate units would mean extra cost for you, since there wouldn’t be any synchronization between these two units.

Utilizing Resources in an Efficient Way

When you have total understanding of your Search Marketing, you can have the flexibility to implement your strategy and set the players in the field. Thereby, you can play a good and strategic game utilizing every resource efficiently. Moreover, you can also reduce waste or spillover, which is a major factor in reducing cost and maximizing profit.

Enjoying a Better Life

Companies can gain greater ROI from the marriage and the management can also get all the information for their strategy from one source. So, that’ll make life easier and comfortable. It is obvious that combined SEO and PPC saves money for you. In return, you get greater ROI.

For a Better Future

In harsh situations, when comfortable life can’t be ensured, marriages are made in the intention to have better future. Investments are also like marriages craving for better future. Getting the reward right away isn’t possible. Combined investment in SEO and PPC can mean quicker break even. Moreover, as resources are utilized efficiently, the chance of having better life is quicker than having them separated.

What are alternatives if they can’t marry each other?

Date Each Other?

Now, if it happens that SEO and PPC can’t marry, then they can go out on dates from time to time to share things together. Even if they are separate, they should share each other’s learning from time to time by synchronizing each other and go toward a mutual understanding.

That way, some cost for advertising and marketing can be reduced by removing ad spending away from PPC, when SEO has organically reached its goal for a specific keyword. However, it can be more time consuming if you are to synchronize learning within these units.

Be Neighbors?

If they don’t synchronize, then the best way to learn from each other is by staying in the same premises and experiencing social and corporate activities together. That also can expand their learning. This can also mean hiring same internet marketing agency with separate units running campaigns with separate PMs.

What happens if SEO and PPC are Single?

SEO and PPC in the isolated island may mean loss in terms of the many benefits I mentioned above. But, not always their marriage is necessary. Their marriage can encourage cost reduction. But sometimes for the sake of online branding and converting visitors into sales takes more than just strict control of organic search marketing and paid search advertisement.

In the sales funnel, from visitors to sales, the communication and information feeding should be made several times before the purchase. So, limiting your doorways for the visitors to your business can harm you, if you are planning to sale big.

In case of online sales funnel, remember that:

  • Not all search engine visitors are your customers,
  • All those that find you when searching may not be your customer,
  • All the people that return to your site, doesn’t mean that they will make an inquiry,
  • All the people that makes an inquiry about your product or services, doesn’t mean that they will purchase your product.

So, in all stages of the sales funnel, there should be multiple ways for the visitor to get information about your company or product. If you have done SEO and simultaneously running PPC for content network (AdWords for AdSense), the chances are, when the visitor is reading something related, s/he might come back to your site.

Otherwise, after going a long way, the visitor might buy from the last good outlet s/he could remember, even though you were in top of the search (SEO efficient) when s/he found you earlier.

This happens to us always, when we go to a special product mall. Everyone visits the front stalls, but you happen to buy from a stall inside the mall. There is almost no extra competitive advantage for being the front stall (SEO effecient), when you have product that visitors always move around to find a good bargain. Getting these temporarily lost customers back to your site for sale is called retargeting. So, for retargeting, you need to be more liberal on SEO and PPC.

Another fact is, the objectives of SEO and PPC is not same. Most of the time PPC concetrates on Conversion and SEO on Branding & Reputation Building. I said “most of the time”, not “always”. e.g. Most popular keywords may not convert well and will mean unnecessary PPC spending on visitors that are not in action mode to purchase. But, popular keywords are good for Branding and Branding is one of the major targets for SEO. This difference in objectives is a good reason to stay in separate units.

Confused about marriage of SEO & PPC?

Well, if you have a product that visitors doesn’t care much about going for a good burgain (usually for cheaper products), having SEO and minor PPC dating is sufficient. If you are a small company, then having SEO and PPC get married would be a right choice. If you want to sell big, then SEO and PPC should stay single.

          Harris, ND Partner to Create First-Ever BVLOS Network for UAVs   
By UAS Magazine
Harris Corp. has received a two-year grant to help develop a first-of-its-kind solution to enable beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) operations for unmanned aircraft systems.

Representatives from Harris and North Dakota announced a partnership agreement recently to create the first UAS network in the nation to provide a full range of aviation-grade services for safe and efficient UAS BVLOS operations. Representatives then conducted a UAS flight demonstration during Harris’ Tech Expo held February 27 to March 3 in Melbourne, Florida.

Harris will partner with the University of North Dakota and the Northern Plains UAS Test Site to develop the network infrastructure system under a Research North Dakota grant awarded by the North Dakota Centers of Excellence Commission.

The grant includes the development of aviation-grade network services specifically for UAS operations. It is a continuation of a previous grant that included development and a risk and safety assessment of UAS detect-and-avoid technology. The UAS BVLOS network will be developed within the Grand Forks-to-Fargo corridor.

Harris is working to create a regional infrastructure that is scalable to the whole state of North Dakota, and eventually to the entire U.S. Developing this high-performance networked infrastructure will help accelerate regulatory approval of BVLOS UAS operations.

"The use of UAS for business operations—such as remotely monitoring power lines, farms, and rail tracks—represents the future for many organizations," said George Kirov, vice president and general manager, Commercial UAS Solutions, Harris Electronic Systems. "Harris is applying the same innovation and expertise that made us a leader in manned aircraft air traffic management solutions to integrate commercial UAS operations into the National Airspace System.”

“By collaborating with the University of North Dakota and Harris, the Northern Plains UAS Test Site will have the opportunity to evaluate, develop, and implement a UAS network and airspace services,” said Nicholas Flom, executive director for the Northern Plains UAS Test Site. “This network will create a real-world environment for users to develop, test and certify new products and services.”

“North Dakota is committed to creating an environment where organizations like Harris Corporation, the University of North Dakota, and the Northern Plains UAS Test Site may pursue new and exciting opportunities with UAS,” said Brian Opp, manager, Aerospace Business Development, North Dakota Department of Commerce.

Harris is looking to partner with end users, such as railroads and electric utility companies in the area, to create UAS test scenarios. As the project continues, Harris expects to test scenarios including railway inspection, roadway inspection, transmission line inspection, precision agriculture, public safety and emergency services, expanded flight operations, and more.

ND Governor's Office
BISMARCK – Gov. Doug Burgum on Friday appointed GIANT Sunflower Seeds co-founder Jay Schuler to lead the North Dakota Department of Commerce, citing Schuler’s successful track record as a job creator and entrepreneur for more than 40 years.
 
“Jay Schuler’s impressive background of incubating and launching 15 startup companies spanning five continents and deep understanding of value-added agriculture will be highly valuable as we seek to diversify North Dakota’s economy and reinvent state government,” Burgum said.
Schuler will assume his new role as commerce commissioner on Feb. 27.
 
As commissioner, one of his top priorities will be to advance the governor’s Main Street Initiative, focusing on a skilled workforce, smart, efficient infrastructure and healthy, vibrant communities. Schuler will oversee the department’s four divisions – Economic Development, Workforce Development, Community Services and Tourism – and continue its work to improve the quality of life for North Dakota citizens by leading efforts to attract, retain and expand wealth.
 
“As someone who has spent his entire career launching and growing businesses, I’m excited to join a cabinet led by a successful entrepreneur in Gov. Burgum,” Schuler said. “We share the view that in order for our urban and rural communities to prosper, we must create a regulatory environment and support network that encourages startups to form and thrive, while ensuring our existing businesses have the tools and workforce they need to flourish and innovate.”
 
A native of Wahpeton, N.D., and neighboring Breckenridge, Minn., Schuler started his first company in college. He is a founding investor in both GIANT Sunflower Seeds, the largest sunflower confection retailer in the Upper Midwest, and Richland IFC, a dominant supplier of organic blue corn. Schuler also is an original investor in Ag America Network, which is carried by more than 30 radio stations in North Dakota and South Dakota.
 
Recognized as a teacher and mentor to new businesses, Schuler was selected to be the first Lynn Holaday Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the University of North Dakota Center for Innovation in November 2012. Schuler has a bachelor’s degree in agriculture economics from North Dakota State University, and he received the John Lee Coulter Award from the NDSU Agribusiness Club in 2003.
 
“Jay knows first-hand what it takes to grow a startup business into a nationally recognized brand,” Burgum said. “His commitment to entrepreneurial education and breadth of experience as a business owner, farmer and investor make him the right person to steer the Department of Commerce through a rapidly changing world.”

          Working Memory Modulation of Frontoparietal Network Connectivity in First-Episode Schizophrenia   
Abstract
Working memory (WM) impairment is regarded as a core aspect of schizophrenia. However, the neural mechanisms behind this cognitive deficit remain unclear. The connectivity of a frontoparietal network is known to be important for subserving WM. Using functional magnetic resonance imaging, the current study investigated whether WM-dependent modulation of effective connectivity in this network is affected in a group of first-episode schizophrenia (FES) patients compared with similarly performing healthy participants during a verbal n-back task. Dynamic causal modeling (DCM) of the coupling between regions (left inferior frontal gyrus (IFG), left inferior parietal lobe (IPL), and primary visual area) identified in a psychophysiological interaction (PPI) analysis was performed to characterize effective connectivity during the n-back task. The PPI analysis revealed that the connectivity between the left IFG and left IPL was modulated by WM and that this modulation was reduced in FES patients. The subsequent DCM analysis confirmed this modulation by WM and found evidence that FES patients had reduced forward connectivity from IPL to IFG. These findings provide evidence for impaired WM modulation of frontoparietal effective connectivity in the early phase of schizophrenia, even with intact WM performance, suggesting a failure of context-sensitive coupling in the schizophrenic brain.

          Global and Local Connectivity Differences Converge With Gene Expression in a Neurodevelopmental Disorder of Known Genetic Origin   
Abstract
Knowledge of genetic cause in neurodevelopmental disorders can highlight molecular and cellular processes critical for typical development. Furthermore, the relative homogeneity of neurodevelopmental disorders of known genetic origin allows the researcher to establish the subsequent neurobiological processes that mediate cognitive and behavioral outcomes. The current study investigated white matter structural connectivity in a group of individuals with intellectual disability due to mutations in ZDHHC9. In addition to shared cause of cognitive impairment, these individuals have a shared cognitive profile, involving oromotor control difficulties and expressive language impairment. Analysis of structural network properties using graph theory measures showed global reductions in mean clustering coefficient and efficiency in the ZDHHC9 group, with maximal differences in frontal and parietal areas. Regional variation in clustering coefficient across cortical regions in ZDHHC9 mutation cases was significantly associated with known pattern of expression of ZDHHC9 in the normal adult human brain. The results demonstrate that a mutation in a single gene impacts upon white matter organization across the whole-brain, but also shows regionally specific effects, according to variation in gene expression. Furthermore, these regionally specific patterns may link to specific developmental mechanisms, and correspond to specific cognitive deficits.

          Dissociating the Neural Basis of Conceptual Self-Awareness from Perceptual Awareness and Unaware Self-Processing   
Abstract
Conceptual self-awareness is a mental state in which the content of one's consciousness refers to a particular aspect of semantic knowledge about oneself. This form of consciousness plays a crucial role in shaping human behavior; however, little is known about its neural basis. Here, we use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and a visual masked priming paradigm to dissociate the neural responses related to the awareness of semantic autobiographical information (one's own name, surname, etc.) from the awareness of information related to any visual stimulus (perceptual awareness), as well as from the unaware processing of self-relevant stimuli. To detect brain activity that is highly selective for self-relevant information, we used the blood-oxygen-level-dependent (BOLD) adaptation approach, which goes beyond the spatial limitations of conventional fMRI. We found that self-awareness was associated with BOLD adaptation in the medial frontopolar-retrosplenial areas, whereas perceptual awareness and unaware self-processing were associated with BOLD adaptation in the lateral fronto-parietal areas and the inferior temporal cortex, respectively. Thus, using a direct manipulation of conscious awareness we demonstrate for the first time that the neural basis of conceptual self-awareness is neuroanatomically distinct from the network mediating perceptual awareness of the sensory environment or unaware processing of self-related stimuli.

          Palmitoylation of cdc42 Promotes Spine Stabilization and Rescues Spine Density Deficit in a Mouse Model of 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome   
Abstract
22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11DS) is associated with learning and cognitive dysfunctions and a high risk of developing schizophrenia. It has become increasingly clear that dendritic spine plasticity is tightly linked to cognition. Thus, understanding how genes involved in cognitive disorders affect synaptic networks is a major challenge of modern biology. Several studies have pointed to a spine density deficit in 22q11DS transgenic mice models. Using the LgDel mouse model, we first quantified spine deficit at different stages using electron microscopy. Next we performed repetitive confocal imaging over several days on hippocampal organotypic cultures of LgDel mice. We show no imbalanced ratio between daily spine formation and spine elimination, but a decreased spine life expectancy. We corrected this impaired spine stabilization process by overexpressing ZDHHC8 palmitoyltransferase, whose gene belongs to the LgDel microdeletion. Overexpression of one of its substrates, the cdc42 brain-specific variant, under a constitutively active form (cdc42-palm-CA) led to the same result. Finally, we could rescue spine density in vivo, in adult LgDel mice, by injecting pups with a vector expressing cdc42-palm-CA. This study reveals a new role of ZDHHC8-cdc42-palm molecular pathway in postsynaptic structural plasticity and provides new evidence in favor of the dysconnectivity hypothesis for schizophrenia.

          Inside Fargo, America's Most Undervalued Tech Hub   
By Fortune
Editor's Note: Congratulations to the many Fargo-area businesses mentioned in this article. Many of them have participate in ND Commerce programs such as Innovate ND, Centers of Excellence and Centers of Research Excellence, Research ND and the North Dakota Development Fund.

It gets 50 inches of snow a year and is so cold that its bikeshare moves inside for the winter. But its homegrown tech community is on fire.

The morning of Nov. 12, 2014 was well below freezing in Fargo, the largest city in North Dakota. By the time Shawn Muehler took the stage before an audience of 150, the theater, located just a few blocks west of the Red River, had warmed up. Entrepreneurs, students, professors and business leaders shuffled down the aisles with free cups of coffee. For the audience, it was time for Fargo’s 1 Million Cups, a robust startup community-building initiative from the Kaufman Foundation that’s a kind of church for entrepreneurs. For Muehler, it was time to talk about drones.

Standing on stage with one of his drones, Muehler—a Fargo native, Air Force officer, and seasoned pilot—had six minutes to present his business idea, the result of several months of white-board calculating, late-night brainstorming, and endless code tinkering. He described the collision risks found in an airspace that is increasingly crowded with aircraft and drones. The software that he and his small team of pilots, developers, and engineers wanted to build, he explained, would create a safety net for drone pilots, enabling them to track their unmanned vehicles in real time using existing cellular networks.

Muehler’s presentation was followed by vigorous applause and a round of questions. As is tradition at 1 Million Cups, the entrepreneur was asked one final query: “How can we as a community help you succeed?” And so he answered. Within five days, Muehler tells Fortune, he had five funding opportunities from people in the community. The ensuing $500,000 seed investment allowed him to double his workforce and move to a larger office downtown.

Last spring the company, now called Botlink, launched the beta version of its drone-tracking application, which it says is the world’s first commercially available drone safety and control platform. In June, Botlink announced a joint venture with Fargo’s power management company, Packet Digital, to raise $15 million on the same day that it co-hosted Fargo’s inaugural Drone Focus Conference. By this fall, the company had launched its first product: a piece of data-processing hardware that’s compatible with every drone on the market.

When I visited the Botlink office in September, the staff had just returned from a drone conference in Las Vegas where they’d run out of brochures the first day and flummoxed some West Coast startups who didn’t realize they had competitors in Fargo. Half-empty containers of drones now littered the floor around the reception desk, making the office look like the home of a robot family unpacking from a long trip. In the workshop down the hall, a plane with a 14-foot wingspan sat on a desk, and Muehler, wearing a Batman t-shirt, was one of the first to tell me what makes Fargo special.

Well before I arrived in Fargo, I’d heard about Silicon Prairie—the Heartland’s version of Silicon Valley—with noteworthy startup activity in larger cities like Omaha, Des Moines, and Kansas City. I knew Fargo was on the eastern border of the state, far from the oil activity in the Bakken region. I’d read that it’s home to the country’s third-largest Microsoft  MSFT 0.65% campus and nearly 30,000 college students. The average age of Fargo residents is 31. Its unemployment rate is among the lowest in the nation. I had already grasped enough about this city of 105,000 to easily dismiss the Siberia-esque picture painted in the 1996 Coen brothers film of the same name. I envisioned a burst of Technicolor popping from a vast expanse of plains.

The tech scene that I visited in September was markedly different from the one I had first heard about in 2013. Two years ago Emerging Prairie, a startup news and events organization, was beginning to establish itself; today it co-organizes wildly popular events such as 1 Million Cups, TEDxFargo, and a monthly gathering called Startup Drinks. Thanks to local startup Myriad Mobile, which spun out of a student-run incubator, Fargo has begun hosting the annual Midwest Mobile Summit. A nonprofit has started offering coding classes for women. Meetups have launched for hackers, gamers, developers, geeks, and even bitcoin enthusiasts.

Fargo companies are also beginning to appear in the national spotlight. Intelligent InSites, which provides tracking real-time operational intelligence for the healthcare industry, is experiencing explosive growth. So is Appareo Systems, a leader in electronic and computer products for the aerospace and defense industries. A handful of gaming companies have surfaced in the area; one is developing a virtual reality horror game and another is building a woodland survival adventure game called On My Ownfor Xbox One. A team from North Dakota State University has engineered an affordable, 3D-printed prosthetic arm. Two locals have started a funeral webcasting service. Another startup has developed an autonomous tractor.

With all of this activity, how does a place like Fargo end up as one of the most undervalued, overlooked tech communities in the United States? That’s why I wanted to meet Greg Tehven, the executive director and co-founder of Emerging Prairie and affectionately known as Fargo’s ambassador, when I visited the city this fall. On a warm Sunday afternoon, I found him at a community lunch for new Americans, set up for several hundred on a basketball court on the west side of town. Characteristic of the region, the wind blew like it was trying to prove something; strong guests sent naan cartwheeling across curry vegetables and off paper plates. Young Bhutanese girls danced barefoot on the asphalt in sequined dresses the color of Gerber daisies.

Tehven is a soft-spoken, dyed-in-the-wool millennial, a fifth-generation Fargoian who grew up on a farm and came of age during the Buffalo Commons era, when people debated a proposal to let buffalo take over the Great Plains. Tehven left Fargo for college, wandered around, felt unfulfilled and returned, determined to build the type of community he wanted to call home. Today, he travels around the country speaking about community-building and teaches social entrepreneurship in India.

“Barriers are being eliminated to contribute to the community here,” he told me. “People who have moved away know they can come back here and do things quickly.” He talked about a radically inclusive culture that has an extraordinary speed of trust. In economic terms, what’s happening in Fargo is that a magnetic downtown is attracting and retaining talent. But Tehven contends that it’s really about love.

“It’s about increasing the amount of love in our community,” he said, noting that it’s hard to be successful on your own. “There’s a co-dependence here.” He said people need each other, whether it’s for harvesting crops or recovering from a flood. If emotional support is absent, innovation will falter.

The next morning, I met Tehven at Prairie Den, a new coworking space in the center of town, above a Chinese restaurant called King House Buffet. Until this summer, it was run by Minneapolis-based CoCo, but they didn’t last a year, Tehven said, because they didn’t embrace the philosophy of giving before getting. Shortly after they left, the space was resurrected as the Den, a funky, art-filled workspace that’s home to Emerging Prairie and a couple start-ups. Hearing the story of this rebirth made me think of the new growth that quickly emerges in forests after controlled burns.

One of the reasons Emerging Prairie was created was to act as a publicity machine for locals who think it’s uncouth to celebrate one’s own achievements. The organization, which is in the process of becoming a nonprofit, now has a staff of four, including a writer, Marisa Jackels, who produces daily stories about the startup scene. She never runs out of content. Tehven has each new staff member read Startup Communities: Building an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in Your City by Foundry Group co-founder Brad Feld.

If Fargo had to limit itself to a single story, it would be that of Great Plains Software, a fledgling startup built by North Dakotan Doug Burgum over nearly two decades and acquired by Microsoft in 2001 for $1.1 billion. Today, Microsoft is located on the south side of town and has grown to four buildings with more than 1,500 employees—the company’s third-largest campus in North America.

Burgum went on to found Kilbourne Group, a downtown redevelopment company, and co-found Arthur Ventures, a venture capital group that’s investing in software companies out of a $45 million fund raised in 2013. He’s as close to a godfather as the humble Fargo community will allow. Incidentally, it wasn’t until well after a conversation with a community leader named Joe—who started a downtown farmer’s market, worked on Uber-friendly legislation and is now building a giant mobile sauna—that I found out he was Burgum’s son.

Burgum said Great Plains employees focused on service and had a lot of humility and gratitude; he sees that today in the dozens of startups that employ Great Plains alumni. Like others, he told me that the region’s land and history play a role in today’s technology growth.

“Every farmer and rancher is an entrepreneur and tinkerer and inventor,” he said, “and there’s some of that DNA here. You wouldn’t have ended up here if you weren’t a risk-taker—moving your family from Sweden to a new land with no electricity and very little infrastructure.”

Shane Waslaski, president and CEO of Intelligent InSites, also grew up in the state and said the strong tech community in Fargo can be attributed to a pioneering spirit and an “altruistic desire to nourish each other.” Tenaciousness and perseverance are rooted in the heritage, he said.

From Prairie Den, Tehven and I walked around downtown, popping into offices and meetings unannounced and intercepting folks on Broadway and Roberts Street—as was his plan. I was reminded of the familiarity and ease with which students can have impromptu and rich conversations while walking across a college quad. Time and again, talking to Muehler and other entrepreneurs, I heard stories that made it easy to root for the underdog that is Fargo. I found a level of enthusiasm typically reserved for young political candidates offering hope and promising change. More than once, I saw someone get choked up talking about the place they call home.

We ran into Drew Spooner, a baby-faced serial entrepreneur who started the Hammock Initiative and speaks deadpan about the health benefits of swaying. He now has sponsors and a national following. Then we ran into the woman behind Unglued, a shop selling locally made crafts; and one of the brewers behind Fargo Brewing Company, which makes Wood Chipper India Pale Ale. Much of the day, Tehven, wearing jeans and flannel, walked around with a cup of coffee in his hand. He told me there’s a sense in Fargo that if you talk about something enough, it will become real—whether it’s a hammocking craze or a spontaneous tailgate party.

Among the challenges in a town with so much startup activity is making sure the entrepreneurs have enough support to get over the first-generation hump and maintain momentum even when the initial spotlight fades.

“In cities like San Francisco, Boston, New York, there’s a lot of experience and expertise,” said Miguel Danielson, another Emerging Prairie co-founder. “That’s great for entrepreneurs because it’s scary to do alone. So a lot of what we do at Emerging Prairie is try to bring these folks together.” He lovingly describes Fargo—remote, hundreds of miles from Minneapolis and Winnipeg—as a Gilligan’s Island of sorts. “You’re stuck with the folks you’ve got in the immediate vicinity, so you better be nice to them,” he said, adding that in a small place, he feels especially blessed when he finds others with common interests.

Danielson grew up in Fargo and left for college and Harvard Law School. If it weren’t for the startup culture—which is helping Midwestern communities fight brain drain–he may never have returned. After practicing in Cambridge for several years, he opened Danielson Legal in Fargo, specializing in technology law, and he created Fargo Startup House, where entrepreneurs can live for free.

In the next five years, Danielson predicts a more robust Fargo tech scene, with a few wild successes and some wild failures. When the city sees its first exit success story of this new era—someone who starts with nothing and ends up with hundreds of millions of dollars—he said that will be “one that looms in the minds of people forever.”

At the end of my day in Fargo, I returned to Prairie Den. Spooner was setting up hammocks for an evening event. An Emerging Prairie Tweet read, “We sway while we work.”

That night, I watched a video of Tehven’s TEDxFargo talk. He was speaking at the Fargo Civic Center in 2014, outside of which sits a stone slab with the Ten Commandments.

“The Coen brothers were wrong,” he told the audience. “It isn’t a place of barrenness. It isn’t a place of cold. It’s a place of the most amazing people in the world.”

The following week I had dinner back home with a friend who works in the technology industry, and I told him I thought he should move to Fargo. Yes, it’s a place that gets an average of 50 inches of snow a year, and it’s so cold that the bikeshare moves inside for the winter. But there’s a lot going on there, I told him. Shortly thereafter, I woke up from a dream in which I was on my way back to Fargo. In it, I was with someone—perhaps my tech friend—and felt a sense of urgency. Eager to find housing, I sped westward, not wanting to miss out.

          Workforce Recruitment Campaigns Click With Workers   
By The Bismarck Tribune
North Dakota's workforce recruitment campaign, "Find the Good Life," has found some success in its first year, but there are still 19,000 unfilled jobs in the state. Burleigh and Morton counties alone have more than 3,000 job openings, according to the Bismarck-Mandan Development Association.

Administrators' goals for bettering the program in its second year include collaborating with local campaigns and growing private industry partners.

The public-private funded workforce recruitment and retention program's website has had nearly 94,000 users, most of which are accessing the site from Illinois, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Michigan and California, said Sara Otte Coleman, the state's tourism director.

"We definitely got on people's radars," said Otte Coleman, who expressed hope in building off the program's successes and making it more efficient.

Successes
Otte Coleman said the state has had success in recruiting former military, visiting Air Force bases and meeting with personnel preparing to return to civilian life. There are 20,000 people on a Department of Defense email list that receive "Find the Good Life" marketing.

The campaign also tracks mass layoffs at companies where there may be employees with transferable skills useful for North Dakota companies.

Wayde Sick, director of workforce development for the North Dakota Department of Commerce, developed the Recruiters Network, another successful portion of “Find the Good Life.”

Sick said the state found companies were "cannibalizing" each other, hiring away each others’ best workers. For $1,000 annually, members can share best practices and candidates instead of fighting for them.

"We're better off getting that person into the state than missing the opportunity," Sick said.

A state survey, which had 356 respondents, was sent to new residents to find out why they chose to move to North Dakota. Half came to be closer to loved ones, a quarter came for the quality of life the state offers and one-third had spent significant time in North Dakota prior to moving here. Two-thirds were employed with other companies, prior to switching jobs and moving here.

Otte Coleman said it takes most people six to 18 months before making a decision to move here.

“We want the ones (new residents) who stick,” she said.

Because so many respondents came for family, Otte Coleman said efforts will include marketing to current residents, invite their friends and family to move here.

Next steps
"Find the Good Life" has done some city-specific emails, highlighting certain communities in the state, which has boosted numbers, Otte Coleman said, but most local efforts are being left to the locals.

"We don't want to duplicate the EDCs (economic development corporations)," she said.

"We view it (Find the Good Life) as the macro, 30,000-foot view," said Bismarck-Mandan Development Association President Brian Ritter, versus BMDA's small scale “Make Your Mark” campaign, specific to Bismarck-Mandan.

"When we come along, they've (potential new residents) already gotten North Dakota in their minds," BMDA Marketing & Research Director Judy Sauter said.

Sauter said “Find the Good Life” and “Make Your Mark” complement each other with a similar message that North Dakota is a great place to live and the two campaigns are targeting workers in some of the same states.

In the future, BMDA might try to coordinate better with the state, launching more intensive marketing efforts at the same time and in the same areas where the state is attending career fairs, Sauter said. "Make Your Mark” is also able to use videos produced by “Find the Good Life” that BMDA doesn't have the budget for.

"As these efforts mature, I think we'll find ways to work together more closely," Ritter said.

“Make your Make” has had its own success. From March through mid-June there were 42,000 website visits.

BMDA is evaluating the success of its efforts to better target future campaigns, including one at the end of this year. The group is happy with the response the campaign has received to date, according to Ritter.

Long-term effort
Otte Coleman said “Find the Good Life” set aggressive goals, though measuring achievement of those goals is more difficult. But she said companies have told her they'll know if it's working.

There are 32 companies, including those in the Recruiters Network, investing in the campaign.

“We never want to quit marketing North Dakota as an opportunity state,” Otte Coleman said.

          BNSF Plans to Spend $326 Million on North Dakota Projects   
By The Daily News
BNSF Railway plans to spend about $326 million this year on improving rail capacity and maintenance in North Dakota, where agricultural shippers say a backlog of railcars is hurting them financially.

The 2015 projects include building 37 miles of double track between Minot and Williston; installing of traffic control signaling near Devils Lake, Dickinson, Hillsboro and Jamestown to improve traffic flow; extending siding between Mandan and Glendive, Montana, enabling trains on the same line to pass one another; and upgrading the capacity of the rail yard in Dickinson.

The work will help connect North Dakota products to key markets and improve Amtrak's Empire Builder passenger line, which operates on the BNSF network, company spokesman Tom Albanese said.

"We know our customers are competing in a fast-paced, global economy where a smooth, efficient supply chain can be the difference between winning and losing in the marketplace," he said.

Members of North Dakota's congressional delegation issued statements saying the BNSF upgrades should help further reduce the backlog of railcars, which Rep. Kevin Cramer, D-N.D., said already has been easing in recent weeks.

"This, along with (the railroad's) record-setting commitment to improve the entire U.S. rail network, will help North Dakota's resources get to market safely and quickly," he said.

BNSF announced in November it would spend $6 billion in 2015 for capital improvements throughout its system. The railway operates in 28 states and three Canadian provinces.

Jitsi Videobridge is an XMPP server component that allows for multiuser video communication. Unlike the expensive dedicated hardware videobridges, Jitsi Videobridge does not mix the video channels into a composite video stream, but only relays the received video channels to all call participants. Therefore, while it does need to run on a server with good network bandwidth, CPU horsepower is not that critical for performance.
          Learners’ Attitudes toward Foreign Language Practice on Social Network Sites   

This work aims to study learners’ attitudes towards practicing English Language on Social Networks Sites (SNS). The sample involved 110 students from the University Laica Eloy Alfaro de Manabi in Ecuador, and the University of the Basque Country in Spain. The instrument applied was a Likert scale questionnaire designed Ad hoc by the researchers, to assess the dimensions: (i) Integration of SNS into learners’ academic everyday activities, and (ii) Learners’ attitudes towards English Language practices on SNS. All the data was analyzed using SPSS V24.00 of IBM. The findings showed corelationships between learners’ attitudes and the factors: learners’ sex, age, and country. The results also confirmed that both Spanish and Ecuadorian university students prefer YouTube, and Google+ for their easy access, and flexibility to strengthen listening, reading and comprehension skills in English. In addition, Facebook, and Whats App can be used to motivate reading, writing, and speaking practices in English.

          Bypasses to Change Traffic Patterns "Overnight" in ND Oil Patch   
By Prairie Business
Governor Jack Dalrymple joined with state and local officials Tuesday to christen three truck bypasses in western North Dakota, paving the way for once-quiet communities to regain some semblance of normalcy amid the region’s energy boom.

“So here we are today in a place where 12,830 vehicles go by each and every day, about 5,000 of them being trucks,” Dalrymple said. “We’re in a place where the population can no longer be estimated, and we’re about to open up two critical transportation corridors that are going to change the way life feels around here overnight.”

Two Watford City bypasses will re-route truck traffic on U.S. Highway 85 and state Highway 23 around the city’s southwestern and southeastern edges to U.S. 85 south.

The other bypass in Alexander, where work started last spring, opened in September and also re-routes U.S. Highway 85 truck traffic. The final phase of that 3.7-mile bypass project included fully paved entrance roadways into Alexander at each end of the bypass.

North Dakota Department of Transportation Director Grant Levi told a packed room at a Watford City hotel that the agency he leads is “not only building roadways, we’re enhancing quality of life.”

Watford City Mayor Brent Sanford said the stories he had heard from Alexander of kids safely riding bikes to school and hearing chirping birds again, without the din of truck traffic, is something he couldn’t quite imagine.

“This is a very historic day, a very exciting day for Watford City. I still can’t imagine it’s going to be as quiet in the center of town as it’s going to be tomorrow,” he said.

Jeff Kummer , senior vice president of operations for Belfield-based MBI Energy Services, said in an interview that the opening of the bypasses will allow the company to be more cost effective.

MBI’s 715 truck drivers in the state transporting oil, water and sand used in the hydraulic fracturing process are paid by the hour, and those hours spent sitting in traffic are not helping the company financially, Kummer said.

“We are a logistics company, and bottlenecks in the transportation network area negatively impact our efficiency to move customer product,” he added.

MBI, founded in 1979, has 2,000 employees in 20 locations, but its four core spots in North Dakota generate 90 percent of the company’s revenue.

Kummer , who was born and raised in Watford City, said the opening of the bypasses is a positive step forward for the oil and gas industry as well as his hometown.

“I grew up in Watford City. It’s a huge positive. The quality of life in our little town is going to be much better,” Kummer said.

Darick Franzen , the president of the booming local Chamber of Commerce, said in a phone interview that he first came to Watford City from Illinois in January 2011, choosing to make investments in a community he was “immediately attracted” to for its small-town rural flavor.

“I don’t think anybody had a good idea what was coming around the corner,” Franzen said. “You just don’t hear people talk about a bust anymore.”

He said all of the road construction was an “absolute nightmare,” but with the opening of the bypasses a “staggering” number of trucks will no longer travel through the city.

“The amount of traffic that’s going to be shifted onto these bypasses … is really going to transform what Watford City will look and feel like,” Franzen said.

Dalrymple noted the historic significance of Tuesday’s ribbon-cuttings for the Oil Patch while also acknowledging the historic road construction investments made by the state during the 2013-14 construction seasons, with more than $1.6 billion in bids for roadway projects alone.

Watford City’s southwest bypass is a 7.5 mile-long four-lane highway and the southeast bypass, also a four-lane highway, is 5.7 miles long, at a total cost of $131 million. The Alexander truck bypass cost $28 million.

Dalrymple said the total commitment in the current biennium to western North Dakota is $2.7 billion.

“It’s not that long ago that North Dakota’s annual general fund budget was a little over $3 billion. To put that in perspective, it’s a big investment,” Dalrymple said, praising efforts by the state’s western legislators to help the Legislature to “see this is a necessary investment.”

That $2.7 billion investment in western North Dakota is more than twice the amount from the previous biennium.

For truck bypasses alone this biennium, the state is investing $409 million. Bypass projects also are underway in Dickinson, New Town and Williston.

          Fargo 2.0: It’s Not Like the Movie   
By Seattle Times


Growing up here, Greg Tehven heard all the jokes.

“When I’d tell people I was from Fargo, I would get laughed at. It was almost as if other cities bullied us,” said Tehven, 29, a self-appointed community booster and co-founder of Emerging Prairie, a network of local entrepreneurs and startups.

It was bad enough when the movie “Fargo” came out two decades ago. Now it’s back as a TV show, and this time, the gap between the Fargo on screen — the one with the woodchipper — and the city that surrounds him is galling.

Tehven’s Fargo is the five-block radius of downtown; a vibrant community of artists, tech entrepreneurs, college kids and possibilities. Once hollowed out, the downtown is now crowded with coffee shops, restaurants and quirky shops that draw in crowds of strolling pedestrians and cyclists.

Tehven’s Fargo is one of the nation’s fastest-growing cities.

Newcomers are pouring into the Fargo-Moorhead region, pushing its borders outward, filling the schools to capacity, but still not filling all its 5,700 current job vacancies.

Neighboring West Fargo has built so many new schools, they hold contests to come up with names. Fargo itself, population 109,000, now sprawls across 48 square miles, a footprint the size of Boston.

“You feel like you died and went to heaven,” said James Gartin, president of the Greater Fargo Moorhead Economic Development Corp. — the man in charge of encouraging economic growth in a place now ranked as the best place in America to find a job, the country’s third-safest community and its fourth-fastest growing metro region.

“It’s electric,” Gartin said. “It’s just an incredible time to be in this market. Not only with the business growth, but we have this incredible entrepreneurial ecosystem.”

These are boom times for all of North Dakota, as western oil fields bring in money and jobs at a staggering rate. The unemployment rate is near 2 percent and there’s so much revenue rolling in, the Legislature has cut taxes by $2.4 billion since 2009, yet the state still has a $500 million surplus.

The Bakken oil fields are 400 miles northwest of here, and while the region benefits from the oil boom, most of its prosperity is coming from within. The largest employers in town are the health-care companies, the region’s many universities, the banks and the tech companies, led by Microsoft.

Beyond the five-block core of downtown, Fargo levels out into a sprawl of neighborhoods and businesses, with more going up every day; 2,700 new housing permits have been issued this year.

Plenty of towns talk about revitalizing their downtowns. Fargo is actually doing it, thanks to the happy combination of a good economy, a thriving business climate and motivated residents.

“We’re building the kind of city we want to live in,” Tehven said.

The rebirth of Fargo started with one building, and one man determined to save it.

When Doug Burgum sold his Great Plains Software to Microsoft more than a decade ago, he turned his time and resources to invest in the neglected downtown.

He started with a dilapidated old school-supply building that was about to be razed for a parking lot. In 2000, the city paid Burgum $100,000 to take it off its hands.

Burgum refurbished the building and donated it to North Dakota State University. Today, it’s Renaissance Hall and houses the university’s architecture department.

Other developers stepped forward to renovate other buildings.

“People ask, ‘What’s left to do?’ ” Burgum said. “I tell them we’re just getting started.”

The downtown is an attractive city center with amenities that can make the difference in attracting new businesses and workers.

“Value what makes your community distinctive. Don’t try to look like everyone else,” said Thomas Fisher, dean of the College of Design at the University of Minnesota.

The two largest demographic groups in America today are the baby boomers and the millennials, born between the 1980s and 2000s.

Both groups, Fisher said, are being drawn to downtown living, often for the same reasons — they want the entertainment, shops and amenities you can walk to, unlike the sidewalk-free sprawl of the suburbs.

Fargo is a city of networkers. One person will notice that the downtown alleys could use some sprucing up, and in short order Alley Fair gets created, with volunteers fanning out over town to fill vacant alleys with art, plants and light. It can feel like the city has a downtown-improvement flash mob.

“Fargo is filled with really talented, creative, hardworking people that care,” Tehven said. “And we’re having the time of our lives.”

          In Noisy Digital Era, 'Elegant' Internet Still Thrives    
Before Facebook and MySpace transformed how we interact virtually, there was another kind of Internet — a 1980s network, where users connected via phone lines and communicated through simple lines of text. And while that may sound outdated, that version of the Internet is still very much alive. 'A Lot More Elegant' Pat McNameeking, a college student in Concord, N.H., is one champion of this throwback social network known as SDF, or Super Dimensional Fortress. McNameeking, who goes by the handle Bulywif, connects to the Internet via an Ethernet cable threaded into his parents' basement. Telephone and cable wires are tangled around his setup. Perched over a small laptop, McNameeking, 23, logs on. SDF is reminiscent of Facebook, Gmail and an online gaming site all rolled into one. But unlike any of those networks, there are no videos, pictures or even ads on the screen. "This is a lot more elegant, I think," says McNameeking. "This is just text. There is no mouse; it's just all in a

MICROSOFT MVP AWARD 2017-2018!

“Hi Guys! It’s Amazing! “

At a time when the MVP program is radically changing, I’m happy that Microsoft has renewed my MVP award #2 (2017-2018); In this case is the second consecutive award, for others I knew that unfortunately it has not been renewed.

At the time of "Social 2.0", I focused everything on my blog that I update often, I’ve registered my new domain https://robertostefanettinavblog.com and I have grown considerably both to followers and visitors (more than 1300% compared to last year).

I’ve also put some advertisements in my blog (I know that doesn’t like to my readers..), the proceeds from the ads, in addition to the payment of the domain (the domain has a cost …), will be given to charity (as always) to the institution I support and who deals with remote adoptions (I have 3 children adopted since many years…)

…… Thanks to ALL my followers and readers!

Thanks to Microsoft!

          Whatever Happened to Captain Video and the DuMont Programming Library?   

Before cable TV took off, there were three big broadcast TV networks: ABC, NBC, and CBS. But back in the earliest days of television, the DuMont network was right up there with them. DuMont network programming officially began in 1946, just after NBC and CBS, and just before ABC. DuMont was different in that it was only a wing of a larger company that made television sets, and they figured providing programming would sell more sets. So the broadcast department had no budget, no rules, no tradition of how TV was done, and therefore everything they did was experimental.     

The network developed and produced a variety of shows ranging from early talk shows to inventive crime dramas to ground-breaking science fiction. There was Night Editor, an anthology program where the host, ostensibly the nighttime editor of a newspaper, would narrate and perform stories as though they were requested by viewers. There was the early crime drama The Plainsclothsman, told through the eyes (the camera literally showed viewers his POV) of the titular police officer. And there was Captain Video, often hailed as the earliest science fiction TV show, which followed the low-budget adventures of the Captain and his Video Rangers. DuMont also aired such groundbreaking programs as The Hazel Scott Show, often credited as the first network television show to be hosted by an African-American.

But DuMont went out of business after nine years, and even worse, the shows they produced were almost all lost. Read what happened to the Dumont network at Atlas Obscura. The post contains a complete Captain Video anad His Video Rangers show.

AT&T releasing updates for Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus

U.S. network provider AT&T is reportedly rolling out its first software update for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones.

According to a fresh report by the Android Soul, the 5.8-inch new smartphone has started receiving the firmware build G950USQU1AQD9, while the bigger 6.2-inch device is set to get the firmware build G955USQU1AQD9.

The updates are being distributed over-the-air (OTA) and AT&T has plans to roll out the updates in stages. Thus, the mobile network provider will likely need multiple days to complete the rollout. The updates are approximately 300MB in size each.

While the contents of the new updates are presently unknown, experts believe that AT&T is likely distributing new security patches to the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones.

The updates are being distributed over-the-air (OTA) and AT&T has plans to roll out the updates in stages. Thus, the mobile network provider will likely need multiple days to complete the rollout. The updates are approximately 300MB in size each.

Meanwhile, IHS Markit has estimated that the Galaxy S8 has cost South Korea-based Samsung $307.50 to build. The unconfirmed figure is significantly bigger that the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge’s estimated costs of $255.10 and $271.20, respectively.

          Scientists piece together first-ever image of black hole   
Scientists piece together first-ever image of black hole

Using an Earth-sized telescope, an international team of scientists may have snapped the first-ever image of a black hole.

Project manager Michael Bremer, an astronomer with the International Research Institute for Radio Astronomy (IRAM), explained that they created a network of telescopes spanning from Hawaii to Spain to Antarctica by combining eight observatories like the pieces of a massive mirror.

The earth-sized virtual telescope, dubbed the Event Horizon Telescope, was used to capture an image of Sagittarius A*, a massive black hole at the center of our galaxy – the Milky Way.

Bremer said in a statement, “Instead of building a telescope so big that it would probably collapse under its own weight, we combined eight observatories like the pieces of a giant mirror. This gave us a virtual telescope as big as Earth — about 10,000 kilometers (6,200 miles) is diameter.”

Scientists know for a long time that a black hole exists at the center of the Milky Way. But, they could never capture a precise image of the black hole. However, the EHT project is expected to provide a clear image showing the black hole’s surrounding ring and its shadow.

Theoretical astronomy suggests that a black hole absorbs anything that comes too close to it, including planets, debris and even light. Gravity & light-sucking monster Sagittarius A* weighs as much as four million suns.

          How bank networks amplify financial crises: Evidence from the Great Depression   

How bank networks amplify financial crises: Evidence from the Great Depression

Kris Mitchener, Gary Richardson 28 May 2016

How financial networks propagate shocks and magnify recessions is of interest to both scholars and policymakers. The financial crisis of 2007-8 convinced many observers that financial networks were fragile, and while reforms are underway, much remains to be learned about how and why connections between financial firms matter for the macroeconomy. Indeed, the complexity and sheer number of linkages has made it particularly challenging to formulate empirical estimates of their role in amplifying downturns.

Economic theory suggests many channels through which networks may transmit shocks (Allen and Gale 2000, Cabellero and Simesek 2013) and empirical research has provided some evidence of contagious failures flowing through interbank markets, particularly for the recent financial crisis in the US and Europe (Puhr et al. 2012, Fricke and Lux 2012). History should have a lot to say about the role of networks in contributing to the severity of financial crises, but it is a surprisingly lightly studied aspect of earlier periods of financial turmoil – even for well-researched episodes such as the Great Depression. This lacuna exists despite the fact that financial networks of the past may be simpler in structure, thus making it somewhat easier to identify empirically how aggregate variables, such as lending, were affected when linkages were disrupted.

In a recent paper, we document how the interbank network transmitted liquidity shocks through the US banking system and how the transmission of these shocks amplified the contraction in real economic activity during the Great Depression (Mitchener and Richardson 2016). The paper contributes to the growing literature on financial networks and the real economy, illuminating both a mechanism for transmission (interbank deposits) as well as a source of amplification (balance-sheet effects). It also introduces an additional channel through which banking distress deepened the Great Depression and complements existing research on how bank distress during the Great Depression influenced the real economy.

We describe how a pyramid-like structure of interbank deposits developed in the 19th century, how the founding of the Fed altered the holdings of these deposits, and how this structure then influenced real economic activity during periods of severe distress, such as banking panics (Mitchener and Richardson 2016). The interbank network that existed on the eve of the Great Depression linked large money centre banks in New York and Chicago to tens of thousands of smaller rural banks throughout the US. The money centre banks served as correspondents holding deposits from institutions in the countryside. Interbank balances exposed correspondent banks to shocks afflicting banks in the hinterland. Interbank deposits were a liquid source of funds that could be deployed to meet sudden demands by depositors to convert claims to cash, and the removal of these deposits from correspondent banks peaked during periods that contemporary commentators described as – and that our detailed statistical analysis of bank suspensions confirms were – banking panics. Although the pyramided system of interbank deposits could handle idiosyncratic bank runs, when runs clustered in time and space (i.e. when panics occurred) the system became overwhelmed in the sense that banks higher up the pyramid were forced to adjust to these changes in liabilities by changing their assets (i.e. lending).

We use the timing and location of these panics to statistically identify the causal relationship between panics, deposit withdrawals, and the decline in lending that occurred in banks in reserve and central reserve cities throughout the US. During periods identified as panics, withdrawals of interbank deposits forced correspondent banks to reduce lending to businesses. These interbank outflows led to a substantial decline in aggregate lending, equal to approximately 15% of the total decline in commercial bank lending in the US, from the peak in 1929 to the trough in 1933.

Ironically, the Federal Reserve System had been created with the purpose of preventing crises such as those that had regularly plagued the banking system in the 19th century. We help to explain why the Fed failed to fulfil this basic responsibility. Because the Fed failed to convince roughly half of all commercial banks to join the system, a pyramided-structure of reserves persisted into the third decade of the 20th century and created a channel through which the interbank deposit could influence real economic activity. In theory, pyramided reserves could have been deployed to help troubled banks, but during the banking panics of the 1930s, just as in the panics of the late 19th century, the total size of these withdrawals overwhelmed correspondent banks, leaving those banks with the choice of either saving themselves, contracting on the asset side of their balance sheets, or borrowing from the Fed. With the Fed unable or unwilling to provide sufficient liquidity to support distressed correspondent banks, they were forced to react to interbank outflows by reducing lending, thus amplifying the decline in investment spending. Although the mechanism is new, our results corroborate other studies on the Depression, which emphasise how banking distress reduced loan supply (Bernanke 1983, Calomiris and Mason 2003b).

What might have alleviated this problem? One solution would have been for the Federal Reserve to extend sufficient liquidity to the entire financial system. The Fed could have done this by lending funds to banks in reserve centres. In turn, those banks could have loaned funds to their interbank clients. To do this, banks in reserve centres would have had to accept as collateral loans originated by non-member banks. Banks in reserve centres would, in turn, need to use those assets as collateral at the Federal Reserve’s discount window. However, leaders of the Federal Reserve disagreed about the efficacy and legality of such action.

Another potential solution would have been to compel all commercial banks to join the Federal Reserve System and require all commercial banks to hold their reserves at a Federal Reserve Bank. Due to powerful political lobbies representing state and local bankers, however, Congress was unwilling to contemplate legislation that would have effected such changes. Had they done so, the pyramid structure of required reserves would have ceased to exist, and the interbank amplifier, as defined here, would have been dramatically diminished. That said, given the inaction of some Federal Reserve Banks during the 1930s, had such changes taken place, they may have magnified banking distress as more banks would have depended on obtaining funds through Federal Reserve Banks that adhered to the real bills doctrine. As we show, the costs of the pyramid in terms of a contraction in lending were substantial, but banks still met some of their short-term needs through this structure during the turbulent periods of banking distress.

G3's latest APP Technology is called: Well-Beyond-Period (i.e. Well-Beyond.)

What the APP? The word "app" is an abbreviation for "application." It's a piece of software that can run through a web browser or even offline on your computer, phone, tablet or any other electronic device. Apps may or may not have a connection to the internet. App is a modern take on the word software or application. This is why you probably only hear it in reference to a mobile app or a small piece of software that's running on a website. It's typically used to describe anything that isn't a full-fledged software program.

Types of Apps: There are three main types of apps: (1) Desktop, (2) Mobile and (3) Web.

Desktop apps, like mentioned above, are usually much "fuller" and are comprised of all the features of a program, whereas the mobile or app equivalent is a simpler and easier-to-use version. This makes sense when you consider that most desktop and web apps are built to be used with a mouse and keyboard along with a much larger display, but mobile apps are intended to be accessed with a finger or stylus on a small screen.

https://www.lifewire.com/what-are-apps-1616114

Web apps might be full of features too but they have to leverage the capabilities of the internet connection and web browser program, so while some are heavy duty and can perform really well like mobile or desktop programs, most web apps are lightweight for a reason. If an app is a mix between a web app and desktop app, they might be called hybrid apps. These are apps that have an offline, desktop interface and direct access to hardware and other connected devices, but also an always-on connection to the internet for quicker updates and access to internet resources. http://www.g3-development.co/

Examples of Apps: Some apps exist in all three forms and are available as not only mobile apps but also desktop and web apps. The Adobe Photoshop image editor is a full software program that runs on your computer, but Adobe Photoshop Sketch is a mobile app that lets you draw and paint from a portable device. It's more of a condensed version of the desktop application. The same is true with the web app called Adobe Photoshop Express Editor.

http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop.html

Another example is Microsoft Word. It's available for computers in its most advanced form but also on the web and via a mobile app. Those two examples are of apps that exist in all three app forms, but that isn't always the case.

https://office.live.com/start/Word.aspx

For example, you can get to your Gmail messages through the official Gmail.com website and Gmail mobile app but there isn't a desktop program from Google that lets you access your mail. In this case, Gmail is both a mobile and web app but not a desktop app.

Others (usually games) are similar in that there are both mobile and web versions of the same game but maybe not a desktop app. Or, there might be a desktop version of the game but it's not available as a web or mobile app.

Why An App Is Important
Now that we've got that figured out, the next question you're probably asking is "why should I care about apps?"  Two good reasons:

(1) Web apps or online apps can be a faster, cheaper, more efficient way of deploying software in your business.  Rather than buying a software license, having to install it on your servers or local computers, keeping up with updates — all of which can be expensive and take time — you can simply go online and sign up for an account.  In a few minutes you are using the software.  And typically you pay a monthly fee, meaning that you don't have to pay license fee up front.   For more on what you can do with Web applications, read:  How Small Businesses Use Web Apps – and What to Look For.

https://smallbiztrends.com/2010/10/how-small-businesses-use-web-apps.html

(2) Mobile apps extend the reach and productivity of your business.  Once you equip your mobile device and/or your employees' mobile devices with apps, then you and they can perform all sorts of business functions while out of the office traveling, on sales calls, making service calls, etc.  A mobile app usually enables you to do something specific, like accessing your bank account in the case of a banking app, or run payroll with a payroll mobile app.  Check out: 10 Ways to Use Mobile Devices to Run Your Business.  

https://smallbiztrends.com/2010/09/mobile-devices-to-run-your-business.html

So the next time someone bandies about the term "app" you'll be in the know. More importantly, perhaps you'll be in a position to say, "Oh sure, we use all sorts of apps to run our business better."

How to download apps? Where you get your apps from depends on what kind of smartphone you're using. The three of today's biggest smartphone platforms - Android, iOS and Windows Phone - all come with brows-able desktop web sites and accompanying app stores that arrive built-in as part of the phone's operating system.

In addition to the official app stores from Apple, Google and Microsoft, there are unofficial options, too. Take the Android Amazon Appstore app for example. Google doesn't allow rival app shops to list themselves on its own app shop, so the Amazon Appstore has to be downloaded to your phone through the web browser. Install this and you're presented with Amazon's own collection of apps, which can offer different prices and levels of support when compared to the Google option. And, to go a step further, Android's open software lets anyone install anything from the web.

You may have heard people talking about using a program, an application, or an app. But what exactly does that mean? Simply put, an app is a type of software that allows you to perform specific tasks. Applications for desktop or laptop computers are sometimes called desktop applications, while those for mobile devices are called mobile apps.

When you open an application, it runs inside the operating system until you close it. Most of the time, you will have more than one application open at the same time, which is known as multi-tasking.

In January 2011, the American Dialect Society named "app" the word of the year for 2010. That action alone says a lot. Being named word of year signifies that a term is trendy and growing in popularity. However, just because the use of a word is growing, we shouldn't assume that everyone knows it — yet. That's because being named word of the year also implies that the word is newly prominent. If the word were utterly commonplace like "dog" or "cat" it wouldn't have been singled out. Therefore, we should recognize that not everyone will know the word "app" at this point.

https://smallbiztrends.com/2011/03/what-is-an-app.html

Defining "App:" The word app is a noun, and it's short for "application." Application in this case refers to a software application — in other words, an app is a software program.

Where to Get Apps? In the context of mobile apps, almost every platform has its own repository where its users can download both free and paid apps. These are normally accessible through the device itself or maybe even a website so that the app can be queued up for download the next time the user is on the device.

For example, the Google Play store and Amazon's Appstore for Android are two places where Android users can download mobile apps. iPhones, iPod touches and iPads can get apps through iTunes on a computer or via the App Store straight from the device. G3 has custom PP solutions for you!

Desktop apps are more widely available from unofficial sources (e.g. Softpedia and FileHippo.com) but some official ones include the Mac App Store for macOS apps and the Windows Store for Windows apps. Tip: See how to safely download and install software to avoid getting malware. Web apps, on the other hand, load within a web browser and don't need to be downloaded. That is, unless you're talking about something like Chrome Apps that are downloaded to your computer but then run as small web-based apps through the chrome://apps/ URL, such as Videostream.

Note: Google refers to their online services as app but they also sell a specific suite of services known as Google Apps for Work. Google has an application hosting service called Google App Engine, which is a part of the Google Cloud Platform.

~If one thinks about "the real reason why"  they need to engage in Social Media,
it all boils down to these basics:

(a)   Forming the right relations and
(b)   Doing so the right way
~Many business leaders are still at the fundamental stage of asking,
"Why is Social Media important for my business?"
~This very question begs another question:
"Have you been paying attention to the marketplace?"

Ok, so, most people will answer these questions quite easily.  And here's how it usually goes: "Yes, of course I've been paying attention to the marketplace and Social Media is obviously important because it seems to be everywhere one turns.  One is hearing about Social Media but still have the need to understand why  the businesses using it and why is it creating so much attention."  The answer to "Why" is related to "How and What" a business does to engage in market relations with the aim of creating an opportunity for a business transaction.  Why do businesses exist?  Primarily to:

(a) Create value and
(b) Attract a market who wants the value proposition enough to engage.

However, the "How" of doing this has dramatically changed in the last 2 years from "Push Marketing" to "Pull Marketing."  This transformation has all happened via relevant and relative conversations that attract the market one will seek to the client.

The Real Reasons Why To Use Social Media:
1. If ones business can't be found — they are not engaging with the "True Market."
2. Social Media (YouTube) is 64% more effective — than traditional advertising.
3. Ones "True Competition" — is guaranteed to be engaged in Social Media.
4. One will find customers — 15 times faster with Social Media.
5. One can reach the "True Market" — by simply engaging the right people.
6. By ignoring this Social Media Market, they are not creating opportunities –
while the competition is.
7. Social Media saves massive amounts of time— if one uses it right.

Site owners started to recognize the value of having their sites highly ranked and visible in search engine results, creating an opportunity for both white hat and black hat SEO practitioners. According to industry analyst Danny Sullivan, the phrase "search engine optimization" probably came into use in 1997. The first documented use of the term Search Engine Optimization was John Audette and his company Multimedia Marketing Group as documented by a web page from the MMG site from August, 1997.

Early versions of search algorithms relied on webmaster-provided information such as the keyword meta tag, or index files in engines like ALIWEB. Meta tags provide a guide to each page's content. Using meta data to index pages was found to be less than reliable, however, because the webmaster's choice of keywords in the meta tag could potentially be an inaccurate representation of the site's actual content. Inaccurate, incomplete, and inconsistent data in meta tags could and did cause pages to rank for irrelevant searches.  Web content providers also manipulated a number of attributes within the HTML source of a page in an attempt to rank well in search engines.

Common Mistake #1:  Hiring the Wrong Coach - There are a lot of people tagging themselves as "Social Media Experts, Gurus or Certified Specialists."  Most of the people making these claims are individuals/organizations who offer "basic Social Media skill sets and copy methodologies" which, in the end, will get  the wrong kind of connections, a lot of the wrong followers as well as a bad reputation in the marketplace.  Just like in the Indiana Jones movie, one needs to "choose wisely" or they will perish from a Social Media perspective.

Communications is a system to leverage an organizations ability to connect with ones market; Social Media is "the new" communications system.  Communications is about reach.  Communicating is about relational dynamics between people.  Social Media provides the means to effectively communicate with ones market.  However, communicating in human rather than institutional terms.  If one is not communicating (listening first, initiating second) then, how in the world does one expect to create relationships with people and businesses that may want the value that one offers?

This makes sense when you consider that most desktop and web apps are built to be used with a mouse and keyboard along with a much larger display, but mobile apps are intended to be accessed with a finger or stylus on a small screen.

https://www.lifewire.com/what-are-apps-1616114

Web apps might be full of features too but they have to leverage the capabilities of the internet connection and web browser program, so while some are heavy duty and can perform really well like mobile or desktop programs, most web apps are lightweight for a reason. If an app is a mix between a web app and desktop app, they might be called hybrid apps. These are apps that have an offline, desktop interface and direct access to hardware and other connected devices, but also an always-on connection to the internet for quicker updates and access to internet resources. http://www.g3-development.co/

Ddesktop and web apps. The Adobe Photoshop image editor is a full software program that runs on your computer, but Adobe Photoshop Sketch is a mobile app that lets you draw and paint from a portable device. It's more of a condensed version of the desktop application. The same is true with the web app called Adobe Photoshop Express Editor.

http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop.html

Another example is Microsoft Word. It's available for computers in its most advanced form but also on the web and via a mobile app. Those two examples are of apps that exist in all three app forms, but that isn't always the case.

https://office.live.com/start/Word.aspx

For example, you can get to your Gmail messages through the official Gmail.com website and Gmail mobile app but there isn't a desktop program from Google that lets you access your mail. In this case, Gmail is both a mobile and web app but not a desktop app.

Others (usually games) are similar in that there are both mobile and web versions of the same game but maybe not a desktop app. Or, there might be a desktop version of the game but it's not available as a web or mobile app.

Paradise, NV Reason #90 Why Join the Local .Well-Beyond. 'Marketing Network (#WellBeyond) Business Model May be a Unacceptable Choice

Why An App Is Important

Now that we've got that figured out, the next question you're probably asking is "why should I care about apps?"  Two good reasons:

(1) Web apps or online apps can be a faster, cheaper, more efficient way of deploying software in your business.  Rather than buying a software license, having to install it on your servers or local computers, keeping up with updates — all of which can be expensive and take time — you can simply go online and sign up for an account.  In a few minutes you are using the software.  And typically you pay a monthly fee, meaning that you don't have to pay license fee up front.   For more on what you can do with Web applications, read:  How Small Businesses Use Web Apps – and What to Look For.

https://smallbiztrends.com/2010/10/how-small-businesses-use-web-apps.html

(2) Mobile apps extend the reach and productivity of your business.  Once you equip your mobile device and/or your employees' mobile devices with apps, then you and they can perform all sorts of business functions while out of the office traveling, on sales calls, making service calls, etc.  A mobile app usually enables you to do something specific, like accessing your bank account in the case of a banking app, or run payroll with a payroll mobile app.  Check out: 10 Ways to Use Mobile Devices to Run Your Business.  

https://smallbiztrends.com/2010/09/mobile-devices-to-run-your-business.html

So the next time someone bandies about the term "app" you'll be in the know. More importantly, perhaps you'll be in a position to say, "Oh sure, we use all sorts of apps to run our business better."

Where to Get Apps? In the context of mobile apps, almost every platform has its own repository where its users can download both free and paid apps. These are normally accessible through the device itself or maybe even a website so that the app can be queued up for download the next time the user is on the device.

For example, the Google Play store and Amazon's Appstore for Android are two places where Android users can download mobile apps. iPhones, iPod touches and iPads can get apps through iTunes on a computer or via the App Store straight from the device. G3 has custom PP solutions for you!

https://www.apple.com/itunes/

Desktop apps are more widely available from unofficial sources (e.g. Softpedia and FileHippo.com) but some official ones include the Mac App Store for macOS apps and the Windows Store for Windows apps. Tip: See how to safely download and install software to avoid getting malware. Web apps, on the other hand, load within a web browser and don't need to be downloaded. That is, unless you're talking about something like Chrome Apps that are downloaded to your computer but then run as small web-based apps through the chrome://apps/ URL, such as Videostream.

Note: Google refers to their online services as app but they also sell a specific suite of services known as Google Apps for Work. Google has an application hosting service called Google App Engine, which is a part of the Google Cloud Platform.

Grow A Business With Localized Web Traffic From THEIR OWN Google-Friendly Blog Website! G3 Make's It Easy...

Google ranks websites based on the relevance, freshness, and content structure. G3 creates powerful custom content for the client that search engines LOVE based on important keywords about their business type and location. Then, G3 will merge that content with specific details the client's have given them about The client themselves! The result...? A powerful web presence that helps propel the client to the top of search results!

G3 Development Writes "Powerful Custom Content" Specific to THE CLIENT!
G3 localize's their content

Appeals to search engines like Google
Search engines index the clients information SOONER
G3 Creates and Manages the Tools For the Cleint!
G3 provides the blog
G3 provides the hosting

As the cleints new blog site begins to fill with content, and they establish a web presence, search engines begin to notice, index, and list them in their results. This is often referred to as "Organic SEO". The more custom content they have, the higher the site climbs in search results. If they're new to blogging and web marketing, G3 understands. For the most part, they'll take care of things for the client. However if they would like to get involved, G3 created an easy-to-follow instructions and a cool video library to help them become more familiar with their new blog site. G3 Development provides access to these resources once the client has established an account.

When people needed or wanted something in the old days, they'd look up information in the yellow pages.  Today, people turn to search engines to find what they want or need.

Each day, on average, Google searches currently total over 400,000,000.  When people are looking to purchase something they want/need, more-and-more they're going "on line" to find out what other people think or say about a certain product, service or brand.  The relevancy that influences people's buying behavior is other people's conversations.  That's if they can find a conversation and if it provides the value that people are looking for.  If one can learn "how" to use social media correctly then they'll understand "what" the market is looking for and "where" they are looking.

To sum up:
For many, the Web isn't a place to look for information — it's the only place.

SMITH'S LAUNCHES GROCERY HOME DELIVERY SERVICE
Locally- based PigeonShip Selected as Delivery Partner

Smith's Food & Drug Stores has launched grocery delivery to customers' homes using PigeonShip, a Utah-based delivery service provider.

Utilizing Smith's online grocery ordering service, ClickList, which offers more than 40,000 items from desktop or mobile devices, customers may now also choose home delivery by PigeonShip as an option to curbside store pick up in two test market areas. The grocery delivery service will begin on June 15 from Smith's Marketplace in Saratoga Springs and on June 29 from Smith's Marketplace in Springville.

PigeonShip is a dynamic hyper-local same day delivery service, focusing on quality control and customer satisfaction, but with enormous flexibility and reach to accommodate both business and consumer demands. Although locally founded, PigeonShip's unique model is built for scale and can be operational in any State.

"Smith's ClickList store pickup has been a huge hit with our customers for its convenience and now the home delivery service brings that convenience factor to a whole new level," said Marsha Gilford, Southwest Regional Director, Corporate Affairs.

How does home grocery delivery work? A customer goes to http://www.smithsfoodanddrug.com/ClickList and selects grocery items to build their shopping cart. Once the customer has completed their online shopping list, they choose a convenient home delivery time. Customers may use the same day pick-up at the store or choose the home delivery option with the same four-hour window. Home delivery is $11.95 for each trip, with no minimum or maximum order required. The customer will track their groceries en route through an app or email link and will know the precise time the order will arrive. The driver will then carry the groceries to the door.

PigeonShip was founded in Utah, but operates in other States. Their ability to have items delivered same day and on demand has made it very popular amongst business verticals such as groceries, payroll, legal documents, floral, pharmaceuticals, classifieds, and any other business whose products need same day delivery. PigeonShip utilizes "already going there" drivers wanting to make some extra income, and connects senders who are looking for a fast, cheap and reliable delivery service. PigeonShip is the first pickup and delivery service that offers faster, smarter and hassle-free item or package delivery. Visit https://www.pigeonship.com or https://www.facebook.com/PigeonShip

Smith's Food & Drug Stores operates 140 stores in seven western states including 53 stores in Utah. Smith's charitable giving, in partnership with 18,000 associates, generous customers and suppliers, totaled $5.7 million in cash and food products to Utah organizations in 2016.

G3 Develops Customs APPS.
G3's latest APP Technology is called: Well-Beyond-Period (i.e. Well-Beyond.)

What the APP? The word "app" is an abbreviation for "application." It's a piece of software that can run through a web browser or even offline on your computer, phone, tablet or any other electronic device. Apps may or may not have a connection to the internet. App is a modern take on the word software or application. This is why you probably only hear it in reference to a mobile app or a small piece of software that's running on a website. It's typically used to describe anything that isn't a full-fledged software program.

Types of Apps: There are three main types of apps: (1) Desktop, (2) Mobile and (3) Web.

Desktop apps, like mentioned above, are usually much "fuller" and are comprised of all the features of a program, whereas the mobile or app equivalent is a simpler and easier-to-use version. This makes sense when you consider that most desktop and web apps are built to be used with a mouse and keyboard along with a much larger display, but mobile apps are intended to be accessed with a finger or stylus on a small screen.

https://www.lifewire.com/what-are-apps-1616114

Web apps might be full of features too but they have to leverage the capabilities of the internet connection and web browser program, so while some are heavy duty and can perform really well like mobile or desktop programs, most web apps are lightweight for a reason. If an app is a mix between a web app and desktop app, they might be called hybrid apps. These are apps that have an offline, desktop interface and direct access to hardware and other connected devices, but also an always-on connection to the internet for quicker updates and access to internet resources. http://www.g3-development.co/

Examples of Apps: Some apps exist in all three forms and are available as not only mobile apps but also desktop and web apps. The Adobe Photoshop image editor is a full software program that runs on your computer, but Adobe Photoshop Sketch is a mobile app that lets you draw and paint from a portable device. It's more of a condensed version of the desktop application. The same is true with the web app called Adobe Photoshop Express Editor.

http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop.html

Another example is Microsoft Word. It's available for computers in its most advanced form but also on the web and via a mobile app. Those two examples are of apps that exist in all three app forms, but that isn't always the case.

https://office.live.com/start/Word.aspx

For example, you can get to your Gmail messages through the official Gmail.com website and Gmail mobile app but there isn't a desktop program from Google that lets you access your mail. In this case, Gmail is both a mobile and web app but not a desktop app.

Others (usually games) are similar in that there are both mobile and web versions of the same game but maybe not a desktop app. Or, there might be a desktop version of the game but it's not available as a web or mobile app.

Why An App Is Important
Now that we've got that figured out, the next question you're probably asking is "why should I care about apps?"  Two good reasons:

(1) Web apps or online apps can be a faster, cheaper, more efficient way of deploying software in your business.  Rather than buying a software license, having to install it on your servers or local computers, keeping up with updates — all of which can be expensive and take time — you can simply go online and sign up for an account.  In a few minutes you are using the software.  And typically you pay a monthly fee, meaning that you don't have to pay license fee up front.   For more on what you can do with Web applications, read:  How Small Businesses Use Web Apps – and What to Look For.

https://smallbiztrends.com/2010/10/how-small-businesses-use-web-apps.html

(2) Mobile apps extend the reach and productivity of your business.  Once you equip your mobile device and/or your employees' mobile devices with apps, then you and they can perform all sorts of business functions while out of the office traveling, on sales calls, making service calls, etc.  A mobile app usually enables you to do something specific, like accessing your bank account in the case of a banking app, or run payroll with a payroll mobile app.  Check out: 10 Ways to Use Mobile Devices to Run Your Business.  

https://smallbiztrends.com/2010/09/mobile-devices-to-run-your-business.html

So the next time someone bandies about the term "app" you'll be in the know. More importantly, perhaps you'll be in a position to say, "Oh sure, we use all sorts of apps to run our business better."

Everyone has an app these days. TV shows, web sites, major multinational corporations, even your brother-in-law's taxi firm conducts its business through an iPhone app -- but what are they? Ask G3-Development.co

Well, apps are basically little, self-contained programs, used to enhance existing functionality, hopefully in a simple, more user-friendly way. Take one of today's modern smartphones. They all come with powerful web browsers, meaning you can do pretty much anything you can do on a desktop computer in a phone's browser.

http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communications/mobile-phones/what-are-apps-and-how-do-they-work-with-your-smartphone-1141429

But fiddling about with a URL bar and managing bookmarks on a mobile phone it still a pretty awkward, cumbersome experience. Which is why many online sites and services now go down the standalone app route, giving them better control of the user experience and, hopefully, making everything simpler and quicker to open and use.

The Real Reasons Why To Use Social Media:

1. If ones business can't be found — they are not engaging with the "True Market."

2. Social Media (YouTube) is 64% more effective — than traditional advertising.

3. Ones "True Competition" — is guaranteed to be engaged in Social Media.

4. One will find customers — 15 times faster with Social Media.

5. One can reach the "True Market" — by simply engaging the right people.

6. By ignoring this Social Media Market, they are not creating opportunities – while the competition is.

7. Social Media saves massive amounts of time— if one uses it right.

Site owners started to recognize the value of having their sites highly ranked and visible in search engine results, creating an opportunity for both white hat and black hat SEO practitioners. According to industry analyst Danny Sullivan, the phrase "search engine optimization" probably came into use in 1997. The first documented use of the term Search Engine Optimization was John Audette and his company Multimedia Marketing Group as documented by a web page from the MMG site from August, 1997.

Early versions of search algorithms relied on webmaster-provided information such as the keyword meta tag, or index files in engines like ALIWEB. Meta tags provide a guide to each page's content. Using meta data to index pages was found to be less than reliable, however, because the webmaster's choice of keywords in the meta tag could potentially be an inaccurate representation of the site's actual content. Inaccurate, incomplete, and inconsistent data in meta tags could and did cause pages to rank for irrelevant searches.  Web content providers also manipulated a number of attributes within the HTML source of a page in an attempt to rank well in search engines.

How to download apps? Where you get your apps from depends on what kind of smartphone you're using. The three of today's biggest smartphone platforms - Android, iOS and Windows Phone - all come with brows-able desktop web sites and accompanying app stores that arrive built-in as part of the phone's operating system.

In addition to the official app stores from Apple, Google and Microsoft, there are unofficial options, too. Take the Android Amazon Appstore app for example. Google doesn't allow rival app shops to list themselves on its own app shop, so the Amazon Appstore has to be downloaded to your phone through the web browser. Install this and you're presented with Amazon's own collection of apps, which can offer different prices and levels of support when compared to the Google option. And, to go a step further, Android's open software lets anyone install anything from the web.

You may have heard people talking about using a program, an application, or an app. But what exactly does that mean? Simply put, an app is a type of software that allows you to perform specific tasks. Applications for desktop or laptop computers are sometimes called desktop applications, while those for mobile devices are called mobile apps.

When you open an application, it runs inside the operating system until you close it. Most of the time, you will have more than one application open at the same time, which is known as multi-tasking.

In January 2011, the American Dialect Society named "app" the word of the year for 2010. That action alone says a lot. Being named word of year signifies that a term is trendy and growing in popularity. However, just because the use of a word is growing, we shouldn't assume that everyone knows it — yet. That's because being named word of the year also implies that the word is newly prominent. If the word were utterly commonplace like "dog" or "cat" it wouldn't have been singled out. Therefore, we should recognize that not everyone will know the word "app" at this point.

https://smallbiztrends.com/2011/03/what-is-an-app.html

Defining "App:" The word app is a noun, and it's short for "application." Application in this case refers to a software application — in other words, an app is a software program.

Common Mistake #1:  Hiring the Wrong Coach - There are a lot of people tagging themselves as "Social Media Experts, Gurus or Certified Specialists."  Most of the people making these claims are individuals/organizations who offer "basic Social Media skill sets and copy methodologies" which, in the end, will get  the wrong kind of connections, a lot of the wrong followers as well as a bad reputation in the marketplace.  Just like in the Indiana Jones movie, one needs to "choose wisely" or they will perish from a Social Media perspective.

Communications is a system to leverage an organizations ability to connect with ones market; Social Media is "the new" communications system.  Communications is about reach.  Communicating is about relational dynamics between people.  Social Media provides the means to effectively communicate with ones market.  However, communicating in human rather than institutional terms.  If one is not communicating (listening first, initiating second) then, how in the world does one expect to create relationships with people and businesses that may want the value that one offers?

Mission Statement:
To proactively serve our business community by providing solutions in entrepreneurialism, business development, social media and venture capitalism.

Vision Statement:
To provide leadership in establishing strength with our client's international businesses, being built on a foundation of innovation, advocacy, technology and business integrity.

~If one thinks about "the real reason why"  they need to engage in Social Media,
it all boils down to these basics:

(a)   Forming the right relations and
(b)   Doing so the right way
~Many business leaders are still at the fundamental stage of asking,
"Why is Social Media important for my business?"
~This very question begs another question:
"Have you been paying attention to the marketplace?"

Ok, so, most people will answer these questions quite easily.  And here's how it usually goes: "Yes, of course I've been paying attention to the marketplace and Social Media is obviously important because it seems to be everywhere one turns.  One is hearing about Social Media but still have the need to understand why  the businesses using it and why is it creating so much attention."  The answer to "Why" is related to "How and What" a business does to engage in market relations with the aim of creating an opportunity for a business transaction.  Why do businesses exist?  Primarily to:

(a) Create value and
(b) Attract a market who wants the value proposition enough to engage.

However, the "How" of doing this has dramatically changed in the last 2 years from "Push Marketing" to "Pull Marketing."  This transformation has all happened via relevant and relative conversations that attract the market one will seek to the client.

~This very question begs another question:
"Have you been paying attention to the marketplace?"

Ok, so, most people will answer these questions quite easily.  And here's how it usually goes: "Yes, of course I've been paying attention to the marketplace and Social Media is obviously important because it seems to be everywhere one turns.  One is hearing about Social Media but still have the need to understand why  the businesses using it and why is it creating so much attention."  The answer to "Why" is related to "How and What" a business does to engage in market relations with the aim of creating an opportunity for a business transaction.  Why do businesses exist?  Primarily to:

(a) Create value and
(b) Attract a market who wants the value proposition enough to engage.

However, the "How" of doing this has dramatically changed in the last 2 years from "Push Marketing" to "Pull Marketing."  This transformation has all happened via relevant and relative conversations that attract the market one will seek to the client.

How to download apps? Where you get your apps from depends on what kind of smartphone you're using. The three of today's biggest smartphone platforms - Android, iOS and Windows Phone - all come with brows-able desktop web sites and accompanying app stores that arrive built-in as part of the phone's operating system.

In addition to the official app stores from Apple, Google and Microsoft, there are unofficial options, too. Take the Android Amazon Appstore app for example. Google doesn't allow rival app shops to list themselves on its own app shop, so the Amazon Appstore has to be downloaded to your phone through the web browser. Install this and you're presented with Amazon's own collection of apps, which can offer different prices and levels of support when compared to the Google option. And, to go a step further, Android's open software lets anyone install anything from the web.

Everyone has an app these days. TV shows, web sites, major multinational corporations, even your brother-in-law's taxi firm conducts its business through an iPhone app -- but what are they? Ask G3-Development.co

Well, apps are basically little, self-contained programs, used to enhance existing functionality, hopefully in a simple, more user-friendly way. Take one of today's modern smartphones. They all come with powerful web browsers, meaning you can do pretty much anything you can do on a desktop computer in a phone's browser.

http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communications/mobile-phones/what-are-apps-and-how-do-they-work-with-your-smartphone-1141429

But fiddling about with a URL bar and managing bookmarks on a mobile phone it still a pretty awkward, cumbersome experience. Which is why many online sites and services now go down the standalone app route, giving them better control of the user experience and, hopefully, making everything simpler and quicker to open and use.

Where to Get Apps? In the context of mobile apps, almost every platform has its own repository where its users can download both free and paid apps. These are normally accessible through the device itself or maybe even a website so that the app can be queued up for download the next time the user is on the device.

For example, the Google Play store and Amazon's Appstore for Android are two places where Android users can download mobile apps. iPhones, iPod touches and iPads can get apps through iTunes on a computer or via the App Store straight from the device. G3 has custom PP solutions for you!

https://www.apple.com/itunes/

Desktop apps are more widely available from unofficial sources (e.g. Softpedia and FileHippo.com) but some official ones include the Mac App Store for macOS apps and the Windows Store for Windows apps. Tip: See how to safely download and install software to avoid getting malware. Web apps, on the other hand, load within a web browser and don't need to be downloaded. That is, unless you're talking about something like Chrome Apps that are downloaded to your computer but then run as small web-based apps through the chrome://apps/ URL, such as Videostream.

Note: Google refers to their online services as app but they also sell a specific suite of services known as Google Apps for Work. Google has an application hosting service called Google App Engine, which is a part of the Google Cloud Platform.

G3 Develops Customs APPS.
G3's latest APP Technology is called: Well-Beyond-Period (i.e. Well-Beyond.)

What the APP? The word "app" is an abbreviation for "application." It's a piece of software that can run through a web browser or even offline on your computer, phone, tablet or any other electronic device. Apps may or may not have a connection to the internet. App is a modern take on the word software or application. This is why you probably only hear it in reference to a mobile app or a small piece of software that's running on a website. It's typically used to describe anything that isn't a full-fledged software program.

Types of Apps: There are three main types of apps: (1) Desktop, (2) Mobile and (3) Web.

Desktop apps, like mentioned above, are usually much "fuller" and are comprised of all the features of a program, whereas the mobile or app equivalent is a simpler and easier-to-use version. This makes sense when you consider that most desktop and web apps are built to be used with a mouse and keyboard along with a much larger display, but mobile apps are intended to be accessed with a finger or stylus on a small screen.

https://www.lifewire.com/what-are-apps-1616114

Web apps might be full of features too but they have to leverage the capabilities of the internet connection and web browser program, so while some are heavy duty and can perform really well like mobile or desktop programs, most web apps are lightweight for a reason. If an app is a mix between a web app and desktop app, they might be called hybrid apps. These are apps that have an offline, desktop interface and direct access to hardware and other connected devices, but also an always-on connection to the internet for quicker updates and access to internet resources. http://www.g3-development.co/

Phoenix Arizona Reason #84 Why Supporting the Nationwide .Well-Beyond. 'Marketing Network (#WellBeyond) Product Offering May be a Foolish Choice

Examples of Apps: Some apps exist in all three forms and are available as not only mobile apps but also desktop and web apps. The Adobe Photoshop image editor is a full software program that runs on your computer, but Adobe Photoshop Sketch is a mobile app that lets you draw and paint from a portable device. It's more of a condensed version of the desktop application. The same is true with the web app called Adobe Photoshop Express Editor.

http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop.html

Another example is Microsoft Word. It's available for computers in its most advanced form but also on the web and via a mobile app. Those two examples are of apps that exist in all three app forms, but that isn't always the case.

https://office.live.com/start/Word.aspx

For example, you can get to your Gmail messages through the official Gmail.com website and Gmail mobile app but there isn't a desktop program from Google that lets you access your mail. In this case, Gmail is both a mobile and web app but not a desktop app.

Others (usually games) are similar in that there are both mobile and web versions of the same game but maybe not a desktop app. Or, there might be a desktop version of the game but it's not available as a web or mobile app.

You may have heard people talking about using a program, an application, or an app. But what exactly does that mean? Simply put, an app is a type of software that allows you to perform specific tasks. Applications for desktop or laptop computers are sometimes called desktop applications, while those for mobile devices are called mobile apps.

When you open an application, it runs inside the operating system until you close it. Most of the time, you will have more than one application open at the same time, which is known as multi-tasking.

In January 2011, the American Dialect Society named "app" the word of the year for 2010. That action alone says a lot. Being named word of year signifies that a term is trendy and growing in popularity. However, just because the use of a word is growing, we shouldn't assume that everyone knows it — yet. That's because being named word of the year also implies that the word is newly prominent. If the word were utterly commonplace like "dog" or "cat" it wouldn't have been singled out. Therefore, we should recognize that not everyone will know the word "app" at this point.

https://smallbiztrends.com/2011/03/what-is-an-app.html

Defining "App:" The word app is a noun, and it's short for "application." Application in this case refers to a software application — in other words, an app is a software program.

Why An App Is Important

Now that we've got that figured out, the next question you're probably asking is "why should I care about apps?"  Two good reasons:

(1) Web apps or online apps can be a faster, cheaper, more efficient way of deploying software in your business.  Rather than buying a software license, having to install it on your servers or local computers, keeping up with updates — all of which can be expensive and take time — you can simply go online and sign up for an account.  In a few minutes you are using the software.  And typically you pay a monthly fee, meaning that you don't have to pay license fee up front.   For more on what you can do with Web applications, read:  How Small Businesses Use Web Apps – and What to Look For.

https://smallbiztrends.com/2010/10/how-small-businesses-use-web-apps.html

(2) Mobile apps extend the reach and productivity of your business.  Once you equip your mobile device and/or your employees' mobile devices with apps, then you and they can perform all sorts of business functions while out of the office traveling, on sales calls, making service calls, etc.  A mobile app usually enables you to do something specific, like accessing your bank account in the case of a banking app, or run payroll with a payroll mobile app.  Check out: 10 Ways to Use Mobile Devices to Run Your Business.  

https://smallbiztrends.com/2010/09/mobile-devices-to-run-your-business.html

So the next time someone bandies about the term "app" you'll be in the know. More importantly, perhaps you'll be in a position to say, "Oh sure, we use all sorts of apps to run our business better."

Coffee is one of society's staples. Rain International wants to make coffee even better. So, Rain decided to enhance it. They kept the same, nostalgic flavor, but added substance to coffee so that it's now a "Super Food" and an 'Infusion.' Rain took a proprietary, four-seed oil-blend and infused-it into each cup of their gourmet coffee. This blend is: Grapefruit-seed, Grape-seed, Pomegranate-seed, along with Black Cumin-seed which carry a wealth-of-benefits and nutrients. By combining the four-seed-oils into each coffee bean, Rain created a super-charged source of nutrition that converts average coffee into a source of health and wellness. https://rainintl.com/fused/seeds.

Rain International products are manufactured in a top-of-the-line facility, using only non-GMO ingredients. Their unique cold-press process leaves no harsh chemical waste; it does not emit harmful smoke into the atmosphere. The lack of harsh chemical and high heat proves beneficial to the seeds, keeping nutrition intact with mild processing. Rain is unique because they have control of their own manufacturing process. They ensure that every packet is of the highest quality and they stand behind each pouch. With both NSF (The Public Health and Safety Organization) and INFANCA certification, the consumer can trust their products to be of the highest quality. In process testing and inspection is performed to ensure cGMP standards are met.

Rain International ANTI-INFLAMMATORY ANTIOXIDANTS: Seed oils are possibly the most concentrated source of powerful antioxidants, which fight inflammation and fight all the damaging Free Radicals. Dangerous Free Radicals are produced whenever 'oxidation' occurs due to exposure from pesticides on food, tobacco smoke, fumes and pollutants in the air, etc. Each of us experiences all these harmful chemicals every single day, and balancing resulting radicals with antioxidants can help to prevent a big multitude of unhealthy conditions. Rain International is the innovative creator of seed-based nutrition. Rain's experts have gone to the source of plant-nutrition in order to formulate proven-products.

https://rainintl.com/form

Black raspberry seeds contain antioxidant-like phytonutrients including 'Ellagitannins' and Antho-cyanins, which are powerful antioxidants that help-support many bodily functions and overall good-health. Antioxidants seek out and eliminate cell damaging substances, called Free Radicals. Free Radicals can occur naturally in the body or from exposure to environmental toxins. Although 'Ellagitannins' exist in most berries, raspberries contain the most potent levels. https://rainintl.com/soul. Scientists worldwide have studied and continue to unearth benefits of the ingredients found in Rain Core. Rain has found many nutrients combined are more powerful than one. With Rain's synergy of ingredients, greater results are being discovered and achieved.

WHY CHOOSE RAIN? Rain International's President and Founder, Byron Belka, is an ex-distributor in the Network Marketing Industry that personally excelled to expert echelons. With more than 10 years' experience in the Direct Sales Industry, Mr. Belka worked around the globe establishing teams of thousands of individuals who have earned over $100 million. With the creation of Soul, Rain's flagship product, Mr. Belka not only built a product that has had dramatic health benefits for communities around the world, but he has also opened up a new category of wellness products that is quickly revolutionizing health and generating wealth.

G3 Develops Customs APPS.
G3's latest APP Technology is called: Well-Beyond-Period (i.e. Well-Beyond.)

What the APP? The word "app" is an abbreviation for "application." It's a piece of software that can run through a web browser or even offline on your computer, phone, tablet or any other electronic device. Apps may or may not have a connection to the internet. App is a modern take on the word software or application. This is why you probably only hear it in reference to a mobile app or a small piece of software that's running on a website. It's typically used to describe anything that isn't a full-fledged software program.

Types of Apps: There are three main types of apps: (1) Desktop, (2) Mobile and (3) Web.

Desktop apps, like mentioned above, are usually much "fuller" and are comprised of all the features of a program, whereas the mobile or app equivalent is a simpler and easier-to-use version. This makes sense when you consider that most desktop and web apps are built to be used with a mouse and keyboard along with a much larger display, but mobile apps are intended to be accessed with a finger or stylus on a small screen.

https://www.lifewire.com/what-are-apps-1616114

Web apps might be full of features too but they have to leverage the capabilities of the internet connection and web browser program, so while some are heavy duty and can perform really well like mobile or desktop programs, most web apps are lightweight for a reason. If an app is a mix between a web app and desktop app, they might be called hybrid apps. These are apps that have an offline, desktop interface and direct access to hardware and other connected devices, but also an always-on connection to the internet for quicker updates and access to internet resources. http://www.g3-development.co/

https://youtu.be/61e2ZIw1mKo

Examples of Apps: Some apps exist in all three forms and are available as not only mobile apps but also desktop and web apps. The Adobe Photoshop image editor is a full software program that runs on your computer, but Adobe Photoshop Sketch is a mobile app that lets you draw and paint from a portable device. It's more of a condensed version of the desktop application. The same is true with the web app called Adobe Photoshop Express Editor.

http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop.html

Another example is Microsoft Word. It's available for computers in its most advanced form but also on the web and via a mobile app. Those two examples are of apps that exist in all three app forms, but that isn't always the case.

https://office.live.com/start/Word.aspx

For example, you can get to your Gmail messages through the official Gmail.com website and Gmail mobile app but there isn't a desktop program from Google that lets you access your mail. In this case, Gmail is both a mobile and web app but not a desktop app.

Others (usually games) are similar in that there are both mobile and web versions of the same game but maybe not a desktop app. Or, there might be a desktop version of the game but it's not available as a web or mobile app.

Where to Get Apps? In the context of mobile apps, almost every platform has its own repository where its users can download both free and paid apps. These are normally accessible through the device itself or maybe even a website so that the app can be queued up for download the next time the user is on the device.

For example, the Google Play store and Amazon's Appstore for Android are two places where Android users can download mobile apps. iPhones, iPod touches and iPads can get apps through iTunes on a computer or via the App Store straight from the device. G3 has custom PP solutions for you!

https://www.apple.com/itunes/

Desktop apps are more widely available from unofficial sources (e.g. Softpedia and FileHippo.com) but some official ones include the Mac App Store for macOS apps and the Windows Store for Windows apps. Tip: See how to safely download and install software to avoid getting malware. Web apps, on the other hand, load within a web browser and don't need to be downloaded. That is, unless you're talking about something like Chrome Apps that are downloaded to your computer but then run as small web-based apps through the chrome://apps/ URL, such as Videostream.

Note: Google refers to their online services as app but they also sell a specific suite of services known as Google Apps for Work. Google has an application hosting service called Google App Engine, which is a part of the Google Cloud Platform.

Everyone has an app these days. TV shows, web sites, major multinational corporations, even your brother-in-law's taxi firm conducts its business through an iPhone app -- but what are they? Ask G3-Development.co

Well, apps are basically little, self-contained programs, used to enhance existing functionality, hopefully in a simple, more user-friendly way. Take one of today's modern smartphones. They all come with powerful web browsers, meaning you can do pretty much anything you can do on a desktop computer in a phone's browser.

http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communications/mobile-phones/what-are-apps-and-how-do-they-work-with-your-smartphone-1141429

But fiddling about with a URL bar and managing bookmarks on a mobile phone it still a pretty awkward, cumbersome experience. Which is why many online sites and services now go down the standalone app route, giving them better control of the user experience and, hopefully, making everything simpler and quicker to open and use.

How to download apps? Where you get your apps from depends on what kind of smartphone you're using. The three of today's biggest smartphone platforms - Android, iOS and Windows Phone - all come with brows-able desktop web sites and accompanying app stores that arrive built-in as part of the phone's operating system.

In addition to the official app stores from Apple, Google and Microsoft, there are unofficial options, too. Take the Android Amazon Appstore app for example. Google doesn't allow rival app shops to list themselves on its own app shop, so the Amazon Appstore has to be downloaded to your phone through the web browser. Install this and you're presented with Amazon's own collection of apps, which can offer different prices and levels of support when compared to the Google option. And, to go a step further, Android's open software lets anyone install anything from the web.

By 2004, search engines had incorporated a wide range of undisclosed factors in their ranking algorithms to reduce the impact of link manipulation. In June 2007, The New York Times' Saul Hansell stated Google ranks sites using more than 200 different signals. The leading search engines, Google, Bing, and Yahoo, do not disclose the algorithms they use to rank pages. Some SEO practitioners have studied different approaches to search engine optimization, and have shared their personal opinions.  Patents related to search engines can provide information to better understand search engines.

In 2005, Google began personalizing search results for each user. Depending on their history of previous searches, Google crafted results for logged in users. In 2008, Bruce Clay said that "ranking is dead" because of personalized search. He opined that it would become meaningless to discuss how a website ranked, because its rank would potentially be different for each user and each search.

In December 2009, Google announced it would be using the web search history of all its users in order to populate search results.

Google Instant, real-time-search, was introduced in late 2010 in an attempt to make search results more timely and relevant. Historically site administrators have spent months or even years optimizing a website to increase search rankings. With the growth in popularity of social media sites and blogs the leading engines made changes to their algorithms to allow fresh content to rank quickly within the search results.

In February 2011, Google announced the Panda update, which penalizes websites containing content duplicated from other websites and sources. Historically websites have copied content from one another and benefited in search engine rankings by engaging in this practice, however Google implemented a new system which punishes sites whose content is not unique.  In April 2012, Google launched the Google Penguin update the goal of which was to penalize websites that used manipulative techniques to improve their rankings on the search engine.

Common Mistake #1:  Hiring the Wrong Coach - There are a lot of people tagging themselves as "Social Media Experts, Gurus or Certified Specialists."  Most of the people making these claims are individuals/organizations who offer "basic Social Media skill sets and copy methodologies" which, in the end, will get  the wrong kind of connections, a lot of the wrong followers as well as a bad reputation in the marketplace.  Just like in the Indiana Jones movie, one needs to "choose wisely" or they will perish from a Social Media perspective.

Communications is a system to leverage an organizations ability to connect with ones market; Social Media is "the new" communications system.  Communications is about reach.  Communicating is about relational dynamics between people.  Social Media provides the means to effectively communicate with ones market.  However, communicating in human rather than institutional terms.  If one is not communicating (listening first, initiating second) then, how in the world does one expect to create relationships with people and businesses that may want the value that one offers?

Mission Statement:
To proactively serve our business community by providing solutions in entrepreneurialism, business development, social media and venture capitalism.

Vision Statement:
To provide leadership in establishing strength with our client's international businesses, being built on a foundation of innovation, advocacy, technology and business integrity.
 
~If one thinks about "the real reason why"  they need to engage in Social Media,
it all boils down to these basics:
(a)   Forming the right relations and
(b)   Doing so the right way
~Many business leaders are still at the fundamental stage of asking,
"Why is Social Media important for my business?"
~This very question begs another question:
"Have you been paying attention to the marketplace?"

Ok, so, most people will answer these questions quite easily.  And here's how it usually goes: "Yes, of course I've been paying attention to the marketplace and Social Media is obviously important because it seems to be everywhere one turns.  One is hearing about Social Media but still have the need to understand why  the businesses using it and why is it creating so much attention."  The answer to "Why" is related to "How and What" a business does to engage in market relations with the aim of creating an opportunity for a business transaction.  Why do businesses exist?  Primarily to:

(a) Create value and
(b) Attract a market who wants the value proposition enough to engage.

However, the "How" of doing this has dramatically changed in the last 2 years from "Push Marketing" to "Pull Marketing."  This transformation has all happened via relevant and relative conversations that attract the market one will seek to the client.

          Aug 2nd: Venus and Jupiter both struck by massive impacts in less than a fortnight. Is it Earth's turn next?   

It has been revealed today that a massive unexplained white spot has appeared in the cloudy atmosphere of the planet Venus. Scientists are unsure what has caused the spot - some are even speculating on the possibility of volcanic activity - but a massive impact from a comet or asteroid seems the more likely of the two.

This comes just two weeks after a massive scar appeared on Jupiter near its southern pole. The current scientific thinking/speculation suggests that this too may have been caused by a massive asteroid or comet plunging into the largest planet in the solar system.

To date no one has connected the two events. So should we ask the question: Is it possible that there have been some seriously violent collisions taking place in the asteroid belt - which lies between Mars and Jupiter - that have been sending huge asteroids out into both the inner and outer Solar System? And has the Earth been lucky so far in that two of its near neighbours have taken the worst of the impacts?

It's been a while since Earth was struck by a large impact from space. The last big one to strike the Earth's landmass was perhaps on June 30, 1908 when a comet or asteroid measuring some tens of metres across exploded 5-10km in the air over Tungsta, Russia. Although the explosion took place in the air it still had the blast power of a 5-30 megatons bomb (1,000 times that of the Hiroshima bomb) and caused massive damage on the ground.

There's been no such impacts in the age of mass communications and satellite TV networks - which may have created a false sense of security here on Earth. As Californians love to say - regarding the next quake - it may not be long before the next "big one". A sobering thought for a Sunday morning.
          June 23rd: Blowing In The Wind   

This blog will celebrate its fifth birthday on 11th September. That's quite a long time for anyone to open up and share their thoughts and opinions on an almost daily basis. Perhaps a little too long.

During these five years I've had zero interest in "reader stats", or "potential advertising revenues" and such ugly commercial concerns. This has been a labour of love, a dialogue between myself and whoever happens to chance along. I love the randomness of this approach and the unclassifiable nature of the content of this blog. It's a fascinating world out there with so much to contemplate.

A lot of thinking out loud has gone on here. This has its own pluses and minuses. One of the minuses is that the crucial reworking-editing process of writing often gets neglected - or even abandoned - on the altar of immediacy. Increasingly, the demands of my own writing and creativity need more time, space and thought than the format of regular blog writing allows.

But these are exciting, dangerous times where horizontal communication networks may prove much more useful than constant feeding from the centralised corporate trough. Decisions, decisions.

          Mali official says Islamists driven from Konna   

Bamako: Islamist militants have been driven out of Konna, a city the extremists captured earlier this week, as French forces have launched military operations in north Mali, a Mali military official said on Saturday.
Lt Col Diarran Kone said the military does not yet control the city of Konna and are still searching for any hidden Islamist extremist elements there.

"The Islamists have been chased out of the city of Konna. We are doing sweeps of the city to find any hidden Islamist extremist elements," said Lt Col Kone. "The full recover of the city is too early to determine as we do not yet control the city, and we remain vigilant."

Sanda Abu Mohammed, spokesman for Islamist group Ansar Dine, told The Associated Press he could not confirm if his fighters were still in Konna because communication networks have been down since late yesterday.

"I cannot tell you if our fighters are still in the city of Konna or if they are not, because since yesterday afternoon I have not had contact with them as the telephone network has been down in this zone," Mohammed said.

For the past nine months, the militants have controlled a large swath of northern Mali, a lawless desert region where kidnapping has flourished.

France launched airstrikes yesterday to help the government of Mali defeat the al-Qaeda-linked militants who captured Konna on Thursday, pushing closer to the army`s major base in central Mali and dramatically raising the stakes in the battle for this vast desert nation.

French President Francois Hollande said the "terrorist groups, drug traffickers and extremists" in northern Mali "show a brutality that threatens us all." He vowed that the operation would last "as long as necessary."

France said it was taking the action in Mali at the request of President Dioncounda Traore, who declared a state of emergency because of the militants` advance.

"French armed forces supported Malian units this afternoon to fight against terrorist elements," Hollande said in Paris yesterday.

He did not give any details of the operation, other than to say that it was aimed in part at protecting the 6,000 French citizens in Mali, where seven of them already are being held captive.

French commandoes also reportedly attacked an Islamist base in Somalia to try to rescue a French hostage.

The raid early today in Somalia could have been aimed at preventing al-Shabab fighters from harming the kidnapped French security official in reprisal for the French military intervention in Mali.

Original_damsel-of-the-week-part-five-kiki-d-aire

Struggling actress Kiki D'Aire continues her adventures as the frequently-imperiled "Damsel Of the Week." In this next installment of her exploits, the busty beauty hooks a guest starring role on the American Damsels Network series "Damsel Of The Sea." As the episode begins, our buxom damsel-in-distress portrays a mermaid who's been taken captive by the bad guys. She reluctantly admits that she really is a mermaid, but Kiki fails to convince her captors that she's actually a government agent, and she makes a feeble attempt to intimidate them with a mermaid curse. The villains don't believe her, and respond to her threats by applying a duct tape gag. The trussed-up mermaid struggles like a fish out of water, but she knows she's caught now. Before long the baddies expose Kiki's luscious breasts, and she pleads and flirts in an attempt to get them to release their catch -- but it's apparent she's going to remain their helpless prisoner.

For a city with a serious case of Super Bowl fever, the doctor is in -- and he's making a house call.

Ray Lampe -- affectionately known as Dr. BBQ -- has the prescription for Steelers fans who will be hosting get-togethers this weekend for the big game. What better way to "feed a fever" than with enough snacks and beverages to make it through four quarters of football and a post-game victory celebration.

He'll be offering some last-minute tips for serving winning crowd-pleasing party foods in two local appearances this weekend.

Lampe's cookbook, "The NFL Gameday Cookbook: 150 Recipes to Feed the Hungriest Football Fan from Preseason to the Super Bowl" (Chronicle Books, $24.95), outlines recipes for barbecued beef brisket, chicken, pulled pork, rack of lamb -- and even barbecued bologna, which he says is a delicacy in the South.

A Chicago native, he can empathize with Pittsburgh football fans who brave the most inclement weather to cheer on their team and become "weekend tailgate warriors" in stadium parking lots such as Heinz Field.

"I tailgated at Soldier Field for years. I understand," he says.

For those fans who opt to celebrate in front of the TV with kitchen-cooked treats, Dr. BBQ includes recipes for a variety of salsas, entrees and desserts. He suggests preparing foods ahead of time. When guests first arrive, offer dips with veggies or crackers and maybe some cookies or other sweet treats. While they munch and watch the pre-game show, the cook can work on getting the real food ready.

"One of my favorite recipes in my book is for Mac and Cheese Soup," he says.

His salsa selections range from a sweet citrus salsa that utilizes the supremes -- the tender flesh between the membrane -- of an orange and a lime, to his Screaming Yellow Salsa -- heavy on the bell peppers, garlic and habanero chile -- and Sweet Sticky Barbecue Salsa, which adds honey and lime to plum tomatoes, barbecue sauce and three kinds of hot peppers for a spicy kick.

"Homemade salsas are so much better than the stuff you buy in a jar," Lampe says. "And you can make them ahead and take them out when it's time."

The chef and author credits his grandmother for his early interest in cooking. For barbecue, it was his good friend, Bruce, he says, who signed them up for his first rib-cooking contest in downtown Chicago.

Lampe spent 25 years in the family trucking business until he decided to leave the Windy City for warmer weather to pursue his cooking career.

"It didn't go well the first couple of years," he says, "but it's pretty fun to be me these days."

In addition to four other cookbooks, Dr. BBQ has appeared on the Food Network, where he was a judge on the series "Tailgate Warriors with Guy Fieri" and was featured on the show "Best Thing I Have Ever Ate." His TV and radio appearances include "The Howard Stern Show" and NASCAR Sirius Radio.

Mac and Cheese Soup

This is a hearty and tasty soup that will be a favorite on those cold game days. This recipe is from "The NFL Gameday Cookbook."

  • 10 slices thick-cut bacon
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1 medium-size onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 can (14 ounces) vegetable broth
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon premium chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 4 cups (1 pound) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups dried elbow macaroni, cooked
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

Cut the bacon strips into quarters. In a Dutch oven over medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove it to paper towels to drain.

Add a little oil to the pan if needed, then add the onion. Cook the onion for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and continue cooking until the onion is soft and lightly browned, for about 5 minutes more. Add the flour and mix well. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the broth and bring to a simmer, stirring often. Add the milk, chile powder, pepper and mustard.

Return the soup to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Cook for 3 minutes. Add the cheese and bacon and continue cooking and stirring until well blended, for about 4 minutes. Add the macaroni and return to a simmer. Remove from the heat and serve, sprinkling with parsley.

Makes 8 servings

Doenee's Nutella Bars

"Doenee is my sister," Lampe says. "Her real name is Denise, but when we were very young, I couldn't say Denise, so I mumbled Doenee when I called her, and the name stuck. This is her recipe, and they're great game-day food."

This recipe is from "The NFL Gameday Cookbook."

  • Shortening to grease pan
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup Nutella (chocolate-hazelnut spread)
  • 6 cups crisp rice cereal
  • Lightly grease a 9- by 13-inch pan.

In a Dutch oven over medium heat, cook the corn syrup, sugar and Nutella, stirring often until the sugar is melted. Remove from the heat and add the cereal. Toss well, coating all of the cereal. Transfer the mixture to the pan and push down to form an even layer in the pan.

Let cool for 30 minutes and cut into bars.

Makes 20 bars.

Fish Tacos with Citrus Salsa

This recipe is from "The NFL Gameday Cookbook."

  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon premium chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound catfish fillets, patted dry with a paper towel (or substitute sole, grouper, tilapia or monkfish)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 8 6-inch flour or corn tortillas
  • Citrus Salsa (see recipe)

In a small bowl, combine the flour, chile powder, salt and pepper. Dust the fillets on both sides with the flour mixture.

Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Put the fillets in the pan and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, then flip and cook for an additional 4 to 5 minutes, or until the fish flakes when you poke it with a fork. Remove to drain on a paper towel. Transfer the fillets to a serving plate and break each into a few big pieces.

Divide the fish evenly among the tortillas and top with the Citrus Salsa.

Makes 8 tacos

Citrus Salsa

Using the fruit supremes in this salsa leaves a little texture to the fruit while getting rid of the pith and skin. To make the supremes, cut just the top and bottom off of the fruit, then stand it on one end and cut down the sides, removing the skin to reveal the fruit. All the skin and white pith should be removed. Now, cut the segments out in between the membrane and pull out the tender wedge of flesh known as the supreme.

  • 3 large Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • Supremes of 1 orange, chopped
  • Supremes of 1 large lime, chopped
  • 3 green onions, white and green parts sliced
  • 1 jalapeño, finely chopped (remove the seeds if you don't want it spicy)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

In a glass bowl, mix all the ingredients together. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Mix again before serving.

Makes about 2 cups.
