ShareFile has a new option for meeting HIPAA requirements besides on-premise:
“Citrix ShareFile for HealthCare option, the company is offering a dedicated virtual private cloud for its product that is HIPAA compliant. Rather than organizations having to maintain their own infrastructure, Citrix creates a separate secure enclave for PHI. According to the company their healthcare business is growing, having increased nearly 150% in the past year.”
“Buying an iPhone and putting a case on it is like buying a piece of art, putting it on your wall, and then putting a sheet over it so it doesn’t get dusty.”
“There are iPad drawings you look at on a screen, and there are iPad drawings printed on sheets of 3×6-foot paper and mounted on a giant wall. One might call the latter a David Hockney-style iPad drawing.
Hang five such works together and you have “Bigger Yosemite,” a series of wonderfully vibrant drawings of Yosemite’s rocks, trees, and waterfalls that each measures 9 feet wide by 12 feet high. The piece now hangs in San Francisco’s De Young Museum as part of “David Hockney: A Bigger Exhibition,” a comprehensive survey of more than 300 works made since 2002 by the influential British painter, stage designer, and photographer.”
“Throughout my career I’ve had my antennae up, looking for examples of people who use systems as opposed to goals. In most cases, as far as I can tell, the people who use systems do better. The systems-driven people have found a way to look at the familiar in new and more useful ways.
To put it bluntly, goals are for losers. That’s literally true most of the time. For example, if your goal is to lose 10 pounds, you will spend every moment until you reach the goal—if you reach it at all—feeling as if you were short of your goal. In other words, goal-oriented people exist in a state of nearly continuous failure that they hope will be temporary.”
“In a province where postsecondary schools have endured successive years of 3-per-cent cuts to their government funding, costs are a constant concern. The proposed repository could possibly occupy up to 22,500 square feet in a former government archival building in Halifax’s Woodside Industrial Park, and cost up to $300,000 a year to operate, plus leasing costs. But it would free up 57,000 square feet of combined space across university libraries which would cost $14.1-million to build, according to a feasibility study by consulting firm Deloitte.
While the digital era has profoundly changed libraries, it hasn’t diminished their popularity as a place for serious thinking, learning, concentration – and socializing. On a typical late-October day, more than 17,000 people still pass through the U of Waterloo libraries’ turnstiles, according to a recent report.
Ms. Bourne-Tyson has often heard suggestions that cramped libraries can surely make room by scrapping some of the rows of computers stretching across nearly every learning commons – after all, the average student now brings at least a laptop and smartphone to campus each day. But “the funny thing is, [the computers are] still busy all the time,” she said.
“What students tell us is, they like the library computers because they’re no fun,” she said. “Their own devices are too distracting.”
“Remember, his football stadium holds one of the world’s largest, most advanced high-def video boards — it stretches 160 feet wide and 72 feet high. If the stadium roof were open and you were standing on the moon with nothing else to do, you could watch Cowboys games.
I wouldn’t. But you could.
After all of the outrage and amazement about his phone, Jones later went on the radio with 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM] and addressed the non-situation situation.
“I don’t know what to say other than I can guarantee AT&T is on the top of that flip phone,” he said. “It works for me. I don’t have any butt-dialing with that thing. I know that.”
He’s got a point.”
Visual Studio 2013 is now available for download! We hope you are as delighted with this release as we are to bring it to you.

But my data is more than 5TB!
Your life now sucks – you are stuck with Hadoop. You don’t have many other choices (big servers with many hard drives might still be in play), and most of your other choices are considerably more expensive.
The only benefit to using Hadoop is scaling. If you have a single table containing many terabytes of data, Hadoop might be a good option for running full table scans on it. If you don’t have such a table, avoid Hadoop like the plague. It isn’t worth the hassle and you’ll get results with less effort and in less time if you stick to traditional methods.
“Today there are three main requirements driving the trend to multicore architectures: low power, performance and system / memory bandwidth. But mobile platforms are not about raw performance, they are about performance per Watt of power consumption.”
I sympathize. You and I both know, learning to code is the best way to pull oneself up by one’s bootstraps. Hell, look at me. Other than my affluent Orange County family, my Stanford bachelor’s degree, and the $10 million that my uncle invested as seed capital for my innovative advice column start-up, I have nothing but my ability to code.”
“In an appropriately titled study called Impact of Color in Marketing, researchers found that up to 90% of snap judgments made about products can be based on color alone (depending on the product).
And in regards to the role that color plays in branding, results from studies such as The Interactive Effects of Colors show that the relationship between brands and color hinges on the perceived appropriateness of the color being used for the particular brand (in other words, does the color “fit” what is being sold).
The study Exciting Red and Competent Blue also confirms that purchasing intent is greatly affected by colors due to the impact they have on how a brand is perceived. This means that colors influence how consumers view the “personality” of the brand in question (after all, who would want to buy a Harley Davidson motorcycle if they didn’t get the feeling that Harleys were rugged and cool?). ”
Bayesian Methods for Hackers is designed as a introduction to Bayesian inference from a computational/understanding-first, and mathematics-second, point of view. Of course as an introductory book, we can only leave it at that: an introductory book. For the mathematically trained, they may cure the curiosity this text generates with other texts designed with mathematical analysis in mind. For the enthusiast with less mathematical-background, or one who is not interested in the mathematics but simply the practice of Bayesian methods, this text should be sufficient and entertaining.
If ease of use was the only requirement, we would all be riding tricycles.

WSJ: With smartphones, capturing pictures and video has never been easier. How has this affected GoPro?
Mr. Woodman: Smartphones are always in your pocket. They’re about reactive capture. GoPro is ideal for pro-active capture, meaning, “Hey, we’re going to do something fun and we’re going to capture a video of it.” The increase in smartphones accelerated GoPro’s position in retail stores in terms of how much floor space we got. At Best Buy we were scheduled to test GoPro on a limited basis during the 2011 fourth quarter, but when Cisco pulled the Flip camera there was a void, so instead they said forget the test, let’s go full bore in all stores.
“Writing a novel (or a story, for that matter) is confusing work. There are just so many characters running all over the place, dropping hints and having revelations. So it’s no surprise that many authors plan out their works beforehand, in chart or list or scribble form, in order to keep everything straight. After the jump, you’ll find a mini collection of those planning papers, so you can take a peek into the process of some of your favorite authors, from James Salter to J.K. Rowling.”
“Oregon-based optics manufacturer Bodelin will begin shipping its brand-new ProScope Micro Mobile on May 1. One version fits the iPhone 4, 4s, 5, and iPod Touch; another the iPad; and another the iPad Mini. Whatever size, it will set you back $149.”
“I use a trick with co-workers when we’re trying to decide where to eat for lunch and no one has any ideas. I recommend McDonald’s.
An interesting thing happens. Everyone unanimously agrees that we can’t possibly go to McDonald’s, and better lunch suggestions emerge. Magic!
It’s as if we’ve broken the ice with the worst possible idea, and now that the discussion has started, people suddenly get very creative. I call it the McDonald’s Theory: people are inspired to come up with good ideas to ward off bad ones.”
“I’ll start with the bottom line – Here you can find my code for extracting the main topics/noun phrases from a given sentence. It works fine with real sentences (from a blog/news article). It’s a bit less accurate compared to the default NLTK tools, but it works much faster!”
