The Evolution Of The Cloud

thecloudComputers and computing have changed dramatically over the years due to the innovation of new technology. This article looks at the path taken to achieve The Cloud.

Some think that in some form the concept of The Could has been around since the development of the ARPNET, which was in itself a network enabling one computer to talk to another one. Others believe it was really down to an American, John McCarthy who thought that there should be a national computer network, just like the gas and electricity companies, and that was as far back as 1961. In reality, The Cloud network builds on the ideas of both these ideas, and it is only possible now due to the evolution of technology.

Jumping forward to the 1980s and Grid Computing. This came about as several servers were used to boost processing power. This system broke down huge tasks and it delegated sections of the said task to each of its component servers and they worked simultaneously to… Continue reading

Can You Hear Me Now

hearingaid2How to Adjust to Your Hearing Aid.

Some of the common complaints about adjusting to wearing hearing aid devices are the presence of so many new sounds. It can be difficult to process, distinguish, and figure out the direction of some sounds. Users are often unsure of both the direction that the sound is coming from and how close it is. Some sound enters the ear at just the right angle so that it becomes a distraction, rather than just another sound in daily life.

Yes, a hearing aid is supposed to amplify the sounds of daily life, but most wearers want to hear their conversations, class lectures, and office meetings clearer (and sometimes the birds chirping across the park on their days off), but not all competing at the same time. So, what should a new hearing aid wearer do to overcome the stimuli overload and adjust to their new sense once and for all?

Going from hearing impaired to the use of hearing aid devices is an adjustment in every way. The audiologist… Continue reading

Can You Get Me In The Cloud

cloudWhat’s Cloud Computing and What Does it Have to Do With Me?

Remember those SAT questions: a bat is to a ball as a shoe is to a ____? Well, as much as we hated them, let me use this to explain what cloud computing (or Software as a Service/SAAS) is and how it can change the way you work. Here goes:

Cloud computing is to your office computer as a cell phone is to a land line.

We (okay most of us) remember what is was like to work before cell phones. Running.. running to grab the phone on your desk, running to pick up your voice messages or running to grab a phone at the airport the minute you got off the plane. Cell phones freed us from being tethered to the office. You can work from anywhere, at anytime. And for smart phone users, you have email, calendars & contacts with you at all times. Yes, its ubiquitous, but none of us want to go back.

Eating Healthy While At A Restaurant

healthy17 Ways to Eat Healthy While Eating Out.

Many lifestyles require frequent dining out. Salespeople, for example, are frequently on the road and can’t always eat a healthy home cooked meal. Studies suggest that Americans spend half of their weekly food budget at restaurants. When eating out (or bringing home take out), it is important to keep two things in mind. First, most items on restaurant menus are high in calories. Second, restaurants tend to serve their meals in huge portions.

If you eat out frequently because of your lifestyle, there are a number of ways you can make better menu choices and maintain a healthy diet.

Fast Food Restaurants
It is always a good idea to avoid fast-food restaurants. This is easier said than done. Fast-food restaurants are everywhere. They tend to be cheap and convenient. And the food is tasty. Bad for you, but tasty. Fast food places generally serve high calorie foods with poor nutritional value.

If you have no choice and have to eat at a fast-food restaurant, choose the… Continue reading

Who Will Manage Your Real Estate Investment

manageHow to Manage Your Real Estate Investment.

Many people think finding the good deal is the hard part. They spent many hours looking and searching for the right deal. They crunch the numbers over and over again. They make numerous calls, and walk through many attics and basements, Florida notwithstanding. They get their hopes up, and then dashed within the same twenty-four hours. They check the neighborhood, and research, check, and then double check market values. They write up offers, many with low, almost ridiculous prices. After many hours spent, sacrifices made, offers countered and exhibiting much persistence, they have an offer accepted. Now the hard work begins.

While it may seem that finding a profitable deal is the hard part, it will mean nothing if you don’t know how to manage your real estate investment.

Property Managers Worth Looking Into

property managersAre Property Managers Worth the Price?

Whether you need a property or not depends on how you value money over freedom and vice versa. It’s not easy to be a property manager. You’ll be carrying the burden of running the entire property all by yourself, in all its joys and sorrows. From finding tenants to processing their disclosure, this will all be your job. However, I don’t think the manual processes and paper works are what essentially make property management difficult. They are time consuming but they are not really that difficult. What really makes real estate management a challenging job is when you have to deal with tenants. They are the lifeblood of your business, but it’s inevitable sometimes that you clash with these people regarding some concerns. This is where your character is challenge. Do you think you think you have the heart to handle this? Are you patient enough to make it work? Whatever you answer to these questions will be the gauge of whether you need a real estate manager or… Continue reading

Experiencing The Future

The Power of Your Imagination, Will Create the Future You Desire.

I have often pondered the question around, what drives one person to consistently take the daily actions, which result in great success and what encourages someone else with the same potential, to sit back and do nothing. The research that I am conducting is pointing me towards, a finding that highly driven or inspired achievers find their strength in the power of their imagination. It seems that people, who can visualise a crystal clear picture of exactly what they want in their future, will endure short term pain for long term gain. In other words the people who see or visualise possibility, i.e. prize of what is possible, are willing to pay a price today, to earn the prize they have visualised for tomorrow.

As humans we are wired to be pleasure seeking and pain avoiding. Our natural tendency as humans is thus to avoid anything, which will cause us pain, even if that pain is the small daily discipline, or daily action required… Continue reading

Remembering The Past

Celebrate the Past, Don’t Mourn It.

“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.” – Dr Seuss

How often do we catch ourselves (and let’s be honest here, we all do it sometimes) dwelling on the past and focusing on regrets, mourning for the good times we have lost, the nice things which have gone, the friendships we no longer have.

We start off meaning simply to recall a cherished memory or to remember a happy event, but as we focus on it we start to dwell in the fact that the event is over, the person is no more, and that we no longer have whatever it was we are remembering; these thoughts very often lead to sadness, and even in some cases a mild renewal of mourning for what has passed which further deepens the sadness we now feel. An extreme example of this was Queen Victoria who never recovered from the death of her beloved Prince Albert and who was so consumed by sadness and focusing on her loss that she… Continue reading

Think Home Security by Choosing the Right Door Locks.

You want to keep your home and your family safe, right?

Did you know most building codes don’t even require locks on doors?

The first step to a good home security plan is having solid doors and windows in place, and this includes locks. Not all locks are created equal, and some older ones are downright flimsy.

If you think someone could kick open your door, it’s probably time to go lock shopping. Likewise, if you live in an apartment or a house where the locks haven’t been changed since you moved in, changing the locks makes a lot of sense. There’s just no way of knowing how many spare copies of your keys are out there.

Let The Sun Shine Through

Let The Sun Shine You Through The Cold!

The basic definition of solar heating is the method of creating and designing a construct that will use the energy provided by the sunshine for the purpose of heating some place or some thing. Active solar heating takes the liquid or air it releases by using a pump. Then the solar collector will move the air or water into the building, storage area or any other institution. On the other side of the spectrum there is what is called passive solar heating. This method of solar heating relies on the design of the place it is going to heat, the structure of the place determines where the heat will collect and how it will be distributed.

Putting the FUN Back in Funding Your Next Record.

In the past few weeks I have had many discussions around the topic of funding. For independent musicians, raising the capital to make a good record is one of the most difficult parts of being a musician.

Previously your options included:

What is a cloud?

Pay Per Cloud

For those of you like me who do not know what hosted exchange or private clouds are then this article might help. When I think of clouds I am reminded to look up and see white cotton ball like clouds hung so delicately and yet floating so effortlessly through the sky. If you move to the Midwest and hit Oklahoma the clouds become a bit more treacherous, less appealing and in some cases produce unwanted byproducts such as hail, sleet, lightening and tornedos. I know the actual clouds do not produce these weather phenomena, but bear with me because this article to the chagrin of my friend Paul is not about the weather. I am actually writing about something that I have even less knowledge on, private clouds (http://www.paypercloud.com/private-cloud-hosting.aspx).

This is not a conspiracy by the United States as a whole or any of those that comprise this great democratic union to raise funds by selling clouds to help in this down economy. I am actually referring to private clouds that Cloud Hosting companies… Continue reading

The Art of Recruiting Sales Personnel

Sales Recruiting-Sales HiringKeenHire Sales Recruiting, People Management, & Organizational Development

Just out of college and in my first job I read a book. Reading the book is not the big news, however, the focus of the book is, “Keep the main thing, the main thing”. For some it is hard to focus on one area of their business—the parts they are really good at and let others step up and fill in the gaps. A really good leader will allow for those who have the skill set to step up and take over those areas that are lacking the proper attention. In particular, recruiting the sales team is a make or break part of any business and also is an area I think always has room for improvement. One really effective thing management can do here is convey the mission of the company and the goals at that given time. Taking the time to analyze each applicant and profiling them would take away from other duties they could be focusing on.

One might think the HR department… Continue reading

What to Look for When Buying Ramps for your Car

Car-RampsA quality set of car ramps can make doing an oil change or draining a radiatormuch easier. There are a few things you should consider, however, before buying a pair. So, here is a list of things you should know about car ramps to be used with your vehicle.

If your vehicle is low profile, or does not have much ground clearance, choose low profile car ramps. These types of ramps are designed with longer, more gradual inclines that allow a low profile sports car or vehicle to be driven on to the ramps without touching or damaging the undercarriage of the vehicle.

Make sure you know what the curb weight of your vehicle (the weight of the vehicle without any passengers or cargo) is, and buy car ramps at http://www.raceramps.com that are rated for weights much higher. In fact, buy car ramps that support as much as weight as possible while remaining in your price range. For most cars and trucks, a maximum load rating of between 6500 – 10,000 pounds is appropriate and car… Continue reading

Public use social networks to pay respects

MARY MINIHAN and JOANNE HUNT

In Home CareCONDOLENCE: FINE GAEL headquarters used modern social networking techniques to allow members of the public to pay their respects to former taoiseach Dr Garret FitzGerald.

A traditional book of condolence was opened yesterday morning for Assisting Hands, the party’s office on Upper Mount Street outside of Philadelphia, PA.

Those who could not get to headquarters to sign the book were invited to tweet the party or leave a message on the official Fine Gael Facebook page, following a suggestion from one of the party’s Facebook followers. The messages were then transcribed into the condolence book. Many messages arrived from Irish people living in Australia, the United States and Britain.

“Sincere thanks to everyone who has sent messages for the book of condolence. It is clear that Garret was loved and respected by so many people, all over the world,” the Facebook page said last night.

Social Networking Saves Homeless Animals

As the popularity of social networking continues to explode, more and more people are finding old friends, making new ones, finding what elder care services can offer and even finding love at sites such as Facebook.

But it isn’t only people who are benefiting from the inter-connectivity the sites afford — man’s best friend also is enjoying the fruits of social networking.

While for years rescue groups have used websites like Petfinder.com to list pets in need of new homes, Facebook has added another layer of networking that has resulted in thousands of canine and feline lives saved, rescuers say.

“Facebook and Petfinder have proven to be very useful tools in helping us find forever homes for our dogs and cats,” said Lauren Dobkowski, administrator of the Meriden Humane Society’s Facebook page.  “They allow us to reach people who may never have walked through our doors if they hadn’t seen an animal that interested them online.

Geeky parents’ Facebook tribute as they call baby daughter ‘Like’ after social networking feature

In Israel, a couple have named their daughter Like – as a tribute to Facebook.

Lior Adler and wife Vardit are such big fans of the social networking site they wanted to give their baby a related name. Just like if you liked a gourmet coffee and you want to show your appreciation and support by choosing a reliable company such as White Cloud Coffee (www.whitecloudcoffee.com) in your area. The difference here is Facebook is a global company and this family, half way around the world form the Facebook headquarters want to show appreciation.

They took their inspiration from a Facebook feature which allows users to “like” friends’ messages, pictures and statuses.

Lior said they wanted their daughter to have an original name that was “modern and innovative”.

But his family and friends reacted “incredulously” when they found out.

He said: “They didn’t believe it. I believe there will be people who will lift an eyebrow but it is my girl and that’s what is fun about it.”

However, he insisted he has since received “congratulations from all over… Continue reading
