Cords: Emotional connections between individuals #metaphysics, #alchemy, #spiritual #awakening, #spiritual #transformation,


#

Cords are made of astral and etheric energy and connect two people�s subtle bodies. They stretch between two people very much like an umbilical cord and transfer emotional energy and chi between the two. It does not matter how far away the other person is, as the cord is not a physical substance and distance is irrelevant, so it is still effective from the other side of the planet.

All babies have a cord going from their belly to their mother after the physical umbilical cord is cut. Some may have extra cords going from the heart, solar plexus or even the head to various parts of the mother�s energy body. The cord or cords that exist during infancy last for a few years and gradually drop off as the child becomes more independent from the mother and does not need the connection any more. Well ideally this would be the case, but here on Earth so many people have emotional issues that very often the cords can last well into adulthood. The cord is supposed to be there to support the baby but in actuality many mothers are emotionally needy and actually use the cord to nourish themselves from the baby�s fresh and abundant energy. Of course this is subconscious and the mother is not really meaning to do this. The baby is usually quite aware of what is happening and will even give the mother extra energy and emotional support through the cord at will. The baby is a very pure and loving being at this stage with only a small amount of astral incarnation and very little ego structure so they want to do all they can for the mother.

Unfortunately as the baby grows up it gradually loses its perception of such metaphysical things and so forgets about the cord. The transfer of emotional energy becomes subconscious for the child as well as the mother and continues to operate for possibly a very long time. Cords between mother and child that last for prolonged periods often cause serious friction between the two parties leading to dysfunctional feelings toward each other. The relationship will suffer as there is bound to be resentment and negative feelings. Imagine you have been drained of energy by your mother for 30 years through a cord that has become thick and gross with negative emotions and emotional neediness. You do not know exactly what is happening but you sense that somehow you are being drained by her. You move to another country to get away but wherever you go it almost feels like she is there with you – she is draining you from afar. This situation is just an example; there are many ways to interact through a cord.

Another common cord is between two lovers. Each wants to share their energy with the other and during sex this is amplified greatly. The feelings of love and sharing are often enough to build a cord. Often these cords are between the bellies but can be in other areas like the heart or solar plexus, etc. So when two people have been in an emotional relationship for a time there is a good chance that the two people have a cord. Depending on the emotional issues of the two, the cord can become gross or can stay fairly clean and be a good thing which helps the two with emotional nurturing. If one partner is needy it is likely that they will drain the other which could eventually lead to resentment by the drained partner. Some cords that become too gross can cause serious problems for a couple and could certainly lead to a break-up. Clearing a cord can help alleviate the emotional intensity so the couple can progress to a more balanced relationship. If a breakup does occur, the cord may stay for a long time and continue to operate, making it hard to let go and to move on with another partner. In this case clearing the cord can do wonders.

Cords can be created between any two people or even groups of people that have emotional relationships. Friends, workmates, enemies can all have cords. They can be used by entities and other dimensional beings to connect with us and drain our energy. It is possible to send a cord to someone you don’t know if you really want to get to know them. For example say you fall in love with someone but have not yet talked to them. It is possible that your desire to have them may send a cord into their energy. It is also possible to consciously create a cord to another person but this is in the domain of black magic. You should never use psychic means to purposely control or affect another�s energy without their permission. There are no exemptions from this rule and the karmic repercussions are enormous!

There are many types but whatever the case a cord is basically a connection between the astral and etheric bodies of two or more beings which allows for an exchange of emotional and/or etheric energy.

Fortunately all cords can be cleared fairly easily. It only takes one of the people to clear the cord and it will be cleared from the other. Through the practices learned in Past Life – Regression you can become aware of all your cords and learn to clear them. Interestingly while exploring a cord you can remember when and how it was created, how you felt about it and how it has been operating while it was there. Often cords can be seen and felt very tangibly and their effects become very apparent. As you enter the subconscious through the Third Eye you can actually remember what was happening in your subconscious during any part of your life. These can be excellent lessons in self exploration.

Online Class: Film Appreciation

Course Description

‘Film Appreciation for Modern Audiences’ is intended as a journey through the world of film. It is a sampling of the thought and accumulated critical opinion that forms the basis of the modern stature of 100 years of film-making–as art or culturally important dramatic work.

If you love film, then this course will help you learn more about film analysis, film reviews and discussions, period genres and movements in film style, and more. It will provide you an informed opinion that will hopefully make your enjoyment of the film medium deeper.

This course may be useful for professionals who need to be informed and conversant about the film-industry; for the layman who wants to know as much as he/she can about the world of film for personal enjoyment; or for the student, hoping to become familiar with the ‘lay-of-the-land’ for film-criticism.

    Computer Programming Degrees and Certificates – Houston Community College #computer #technology


    #

    Computer Programming

    General Requirements – AAS

    This option is best suited for persons who want to focus on software analysis, development, and implementation. It prepares Information Technology (IT) students and professionals in developing software products and services for industry and government through software analysis, design, and architecture; system verification; data storage and retrieval.

    The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) allows students to earn only one AAS in Computer Programming-Applications Development. Students may choose from one of the following specializations: Microsoft C#, Java, or Database Administration.

    In addition, please note that a student may only earn one Occupational Skills Award (OSA) per academic year.

    TSI testingrequired prior to first enrollment for all AAS degrees and Level II certificates.

    General Requirements – AA, AS

    To be eligible for an Associate in Arts (AA), an Associate of Arts in Teaching (AAT), or an Associate in Science (AS) degree from HCC, a student must successfully:

    Complete at least 60 semester hours of credit as follows: (a) for the AA degree, 43 hours of required core courses and 17 hours of transferable electives, usually focusing on the student’s transfer major (b) for the AAT degree, 44 hours of required core courses plus 16-18 hours of required pre-teaching courses (c) for the AS degree, 43 hours of required core courses plus six additional hours of mathematics, four additional hours of natural science, and 7 hours of transferable electives, usually focusing on the student’s transfer major.

    A student who has received an associate degree or higher from an accredited institution must meet specific requirements to earn an additional degree from HCC.

    • The student must complete a minimum of 18 semester hours at HCC for each additional degree. These hours may not repeat credit applied from a previous HCC degree. These hours may not be satisfied through credit by exam.
    • All additional hours must be applicable toward the additional degree. If the student has prior credit in required courses, appropriate substitutions may be arranged.
    • All courses required by the specific HCC program of the additional degree must be completed.
    • A grade point average of at least 2.0 must be earned on all hours since the previous degree.
    • Academic courses from previous degrees may be applied to an additional AAS degree required academic core where equivalent and appropriate, which waives the need for approval, except where program restrictions prevail.
    • If the first degree was an Associate in Arts, an Associate of Arts in Teaching, Associate in Science, a bachelor degree, or higher degree from an accredited educational institution in the United States, the student will be considered to be Core Complete , thus needing to complete only the requirement of 18 additional semester hours at HCC toward a new associate degree.
    • Each additional academic associate degree obtained from HCC must be of a different type. Thus, a student may only obtain one Associate in Arts, one Associate of Arts in Teaching, and/or one Associate in Science from HCC. For example, if one degree from HCC was an AA, then any additional degrees must be an AAT, AS, or AAS.
    • Multiple Associate of Applied Science degrees may be earned from HCC if all AAS program requirements are met including earning at least 18 additional semester hours at HCC, 12 of which must be earned in the major program of the additional degree. In most cases, however, there is only one AAS degree allowable per workforce program. See counselor or program chair for clarification.
    • Multiple workforce Certificates of Completion may be earned from HCC if all program requirements are met for each certificate including earning at least 9 additional unique semester hours at HCC toward the major program of the additional certificate.
    • All other state and institutional graduation requirements, including TSI policies and financial obligations, must be met.

    Program Outcomes

    Students will be able to:

    • Understand the fundamental principles of programming, including those of algorithm analysis, software design, operating systems, and database.
    • Design and write computer programs that are correct, simple, clear, efficient, well organized, and well documented.
    • Know and be able to apply important data structures and algorithms.
    • Identify the hardware and software aspects of computer systems that support application software development.
    • Demonstrate knowledge of technology applicable to the field, and a proficiency in appropriate software.

    Employment

    There are 4,930 Computer Programmers employed in the Greater Houston Area. This number is expected to increase by 5.8% over the next four years.

    Important Consumer Information and Disclosures

    For information on graduation rates, the median debt of students who complete this program and more, choose a campus below to download.

    • For information on graduation rates, the median debt of students who complete this program and more, please view the Computer Information Science – Tampa .
    • Tampa Completion rates for this program*:
      • No students enrolled part-time in the enrollment cohort July 1, 2009 – June 30, 2010, or the program was not offered during this period.
      • No students enrolled full-time in the enrollment cohort July 1, 2012 – June 30, 2013, or the program was not offered during this period.

    * For information regarding assumptions made in establishing these completion rates, click here

    The completion rate data presented here is calculated using the following assumptions:

    1. The Enrollment Cohort includes all students who started in a program for the first time during the enrollment cohort (financial aid award year, FA AY ). Re-entries are not considered a start in the enrollment cohort (FA AY) if they attended the program in a previous enrollment cohort (FA AY), regardless of how long it has been since their prior attendance.
    2. The enrollment cohort excludes any students that died, if applicable. The enrollment cohort does not exclude permanently disabled students who were unable to continue on at least a half-time basis.
    3. Students are considered completers if they became a graduate in the program. Students with any status other than graduate are considered non-completers.
    4. These calculations use the federal financial aid definition of full-time, and less than full time (number of credits) to determine the cohort the student s completion information will be calculated in. The number of credits the student is enrolled in on the student s first day of attendance is used to determine the student s status. As such, students are considered full-time if they are taking 12 credits or more, and considered less than full time if they are taking less than 12 credits. All modular students are considered full time.
    5. The following calculations are used to display completion information based on the students FT or less than FT status:
      1. (# of full time students in enrollment cohort ( EC ) who completed within 100% program length) / (# of full-time students in EC)
      2. (# of full time students in EC who completed within 150% program length) / (# of full-time students in EC)
      3. (# of less-than-full-time students in EC who completed within 200% program length) / (# of less-than-full-time students in EC)
      4. (# of less-than-full-time students in EC who completed within 300% program length) / (# of less-than-full-time students in EC)
    6. These disclosures reflect completion percentages for the enrollment cohort (by financial aid award year, July 1- June 30) that will provide the most recent group of completers for the longer of the two completion percentages. Specifically, we select the most recent enrollment cohort (FA AY) for the full-time students to have had enough time to complete 150% of their program length; and, we select the most recent enrollment cohort (FA AY) for the less than full-time students to have had time to complete 300% of their program length. As such, enrollment cohorts may vary dependent on program length.

    ForensiT Domain Migration #windows, #data, #migration, #solutions, #technology, #developer, #system, #it,

    User Profile Wizard 3.12

    Simple. Scalable. Low cost

    User Profile Wizard 3.12 is the latest version of ForensiT s powerful workstation migration tool. User Profile Wizard will migrate your current user profile to your new user account so that you can keep all your existing data and settings.

    Large-scale migration made easy

    User Profile Wizard has been used to automatically migrate hundreds of thousands of workstations to new domains. It can be used to migrate workstations to a new domain from any existing Windows network, or from a Novell NDS network; it can join standalone computers to a domain for the first time, or migrate workstations from a domain back to a workgroup.

    No need to lose personal data and settings

    A User Profile is where Windows stores your stuff. Normally, when you change your user account Windows will create a new profile for you, and you lose all your data and settings – your “My Documents”, “My Pictures” and “My Music” files and all the other information that makes your computer personal to you, like your desktop wallpaper, Internet favorites and the lists of documents you’ve recently opened.

    User Profile Wizard is an easy-to-use migration tool that means this doesn’t need to happen – you can simply migrate your original profile to your new user account. User Profile Wizard does not move, copy or delete any data. Instead it configures the profile “in place” so that it can be used by your new user account. This makes the process both very fast and very safe.

    With the User Profile Wizard Deployment Kit you can build a scalable, enterprise solution to automatically migrate tens of thousands of workstations.

    Scalable – up or down

    Unlike some alternatives, User Profile Wizard does not assume that there is an enterprise directory in place. It supports all environments from Small Business Server through to a Global Domain Consolidation.

    Benefits

    • Migrates all user profile data and settings on Windows XP/Windows 7/8 and Windows 10
    • Automatically joins a machine to a new domain
    • Supports domain migrations over a VPN
    • Supports all Active Directory and Samba domains
    • Migrates from a domain back to a workgroup
    • Includes Enterprise strength scripting support
    • Supports push migrations of remote machines
    • Tried and trusted – over one million licenses sold

    Corporate and Professional Editions

    User Profile Wizard comes in two editions. Read our User Profile Wizard Feature Comparison to find out what features are availble in the Corporate and Professional editions. The Corporate Edition is licensed per workstation. The Professional Edition is licensed per technician.

    Study Educational Technology: Masters, PhD & Online Degree Info

    View available schools

    Educational Technology Master’s and Doctorate Degrees at a Glance

    Whether you’re a teacher who’d like to increase your use of technology in the classroom, or you desire a career designing educational media, consider a master’s degree or doctorate in educational technology. Two types of doctoral degrees are commonly available in educational technology: the PhD and the EdD (Doctor of Education). The PhD and EdD are very similar, but the PhD is usually more research-oriented, while the EdD may focus on applications utilized by practitioners.

    According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), instructional coordination jobs, which are suitable for educational technologists, are expected to grow at a faster-than-average rate of 20% between 2010 and 2020. Students who earn a master’s degree could find work in this expanding field, while PhD or EdD graduates can pursue positions as university faculty members. Beyond working in schools, an educational technology degree could offer entry into fields such as corporate training.

    Who is this degree for?

    Educators or trainers interested in combining learning with technology

    People who want to work as a professor at a university

    Common Career Paths (with approximate median annual salary)

    Experience and/or licensure may be required for some positions:
    – Instructional coordinator ($59,000)*
    – Community college professor ($59,000)*

    A PhD may not be required for all positions:
    – Postsecondary teacher (Educational teacher) ($59,000)*
    – Training and development manager ($92,000)*

    Time to Completion

    About 18 months to 2 years (full-time)

    About 3-4 years (full-time) after the master’s

    Common Graduation Requirements

    – Roughly 10-12 graduate level courses
    – Master’s thesis
    – Portfolio

    Most (or all) of the master’s degree requirements, plus:
    – Roughly 10-15 more graduate level courses
    – Internship/practicum
    – Comprehensive exam
    – Dissertation

    Bachelor’s degree
    – 3.0 GPA

    Master’s degree
    – GRE or MAT

    Yes, mostly EdD programs

    Source: *U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (May 2011 figures).

    Master’s Degree in Educational Technology

    A master’s degree in educational technology offers a flexible academic experience where classes are conveniently scheduled for working adults. As an educator or administrator, you’ll have the opportunity to interact online, in person or both with your professional peers as you learn how to utilize technological learning tools in an elementary, middle or secondary school classroom. It’s also important to note that some programs are geared toward current teachers. Admission to most master’s degree programs in educational technology requires a 3.0 GPA.

    Pros and Cons

    Pros

    • People who have earned a master’s degree are typically paid higher salaries than those holding only a bachelor’s degree*
    • You’ll be qualified to work as an instructional coordinator, a position that is expected to see faster-than-average job growth*
    • You can teach in a community college with a master’s degree

    Cons

    • Many positions in higher education at the university level would require you to have a PhD or EdD
    • Most states require licensure for instructional coordinators in elementary, middle and secondary school positions
    • Some of your career options could be vulnerable to government budget cuts

    Source: *U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    Common Courses and Requirements

    Course requirements for a master’s degree in educational technology frequently include educational theory, qualitative research methods and statistics. You may also complete classes focusing on teaching students with learning disabilities or other cognitive challenges. Because the students you’ll be working with are likely to come from diverse backgrounds and ethnic groups, some programs may feature courses on working with multicultural children. Additionally, many programs will require you to assemble a portfolio, while others will require a thesis.

    Online Degree Options

    Online programs granting a master’s degree in educational technology are readily available. Programs are offered in completely online formats with no residency requirement, online programs with residency requirements and hybrid or mixed programs offering some required classes online. When compared with on-site programs, the online degree programs have the same courses and graduation requirements.

    Getting Ahead with This Degree

    Even though you’re studying a technological field, there are still some ways to give your degree an edge through technology. If you’re interested in working with elementary, middle or secondary school students, consider additional courses that will help you teach, develop or improve the curriculum at an online school. The number of online schools for K-12 students is increasing rapidly. You can also take advantage of opportunities to present your research at conferences for educational professionals. If your program requires a portfolio, make the most of it, and if it doesn’t require one, consider assembling one anyway to showcase your skills for your current or future employer.

    Doctorate Degree in Educational Technology

    PhD and Doctor of Education (EdD) degree programs in educational technology are academically challenging programs featuring a combination of education and information technology coursework, quantitative and qualitative research and a dissertation. If you’re pursuing a PhD, your degree program will provide the research and theoretical training in educational technology that’s necessary for a career in higher education. If you’ve enrolled in an EdD program, you’ll most likely be taking courses that are scheduled around your current position and designed to add to your skills as an education professional or help you advance in the field.

    Pros and Cons

    Pros

    • You’ll be able to teach at any level in a college or university in addition to K-12
    • People with doctoral degrees earn more and are not as likely to be unemployed than those with less education*
    • Some doctoral programs – mostly for PhDs – offer financial support, such as a paid teaching assistantships

    Cons

    • If you want to be a postsecondary teacher, competition could be intense for full-time tenure-track positions
    • Outside of academia, many positions in educational technology don’t require a doctorate for entry
    • A doctoral degree in educational technology normally takes at least three years of study beyond a master’s to complete

    Courses and Requirements

    Whether you enroll in a PhD or EdD degree program in educational technology, your courses will usually include more advanced work in many of the same topics studied in a master’s degree program, including qualitative and quantitative research, educational technology theory and instructional design. Additionally, some programs feature courses focusing on other topics, such as distance learning and educational media. There is also a good chance you’ll complete an internship or practicum. Often, doctoral students are required to pass a comprehensive exam to demonstrate their mastery of the subject. Regardless of which type of doctoral program you choose, you’ll probably be expected to write and successfully defend a dissertation based on original research.

    Online Degree Options

    Fully online PhD degree programs in educational technology are not common, although EdD programs are available online along with hybrid PhDs. EdD programs may have more online options because many are designed for working educational professionals, while the PhD option targets future professors with its research focus.

    Get Ahead with This Degree

    Check out a few of the ideas below to help your make the most of your doctorate in educational technology.

    • Consider coursework that will enable you to design and teach online or distance learning classes at a university. Many brick and mortar universities offer online courses or degrees, and as an educational technology professional, you’ll be in a perfect position to adapt to different methods of course delivery.
    • In addition to online universities, the number of online programs for younger students is increasing. Look for an opportunity to concentrate on the niche created by the expansion of virtual schools for elementary, middle and high school students.
    • Respond to calls for papers that could result in publication in academic journals. If your goal is to be a professor publication will give you an advantage.

    Ethanol: Pros ?>

    #

    Pros

    Positive Net Energy Balance – Corn-based ethanol has a positive net energy balance of 1.06btu per gallon for 1.00btu of energy used without ethanol by-product credits. With these credits, for things such as DDGS, corn-based ethanol has a positive net energy balance of 1.67btu per gallon for 1.00btu of energy used.

    Biodegradable – As ethanol is made with organic materials it is highly biodegradable making spills far less worrysome than petroleum spills. When spilled, 74% of ethanol is broken down within 5 days.

    Usable By-Products – The two chief by-products of corn-based ethanol are CO2 and DDGS, both of which are usable in other industries. The CO2 can be captured for use in the food and beverage industry. DDGS can be used for cattle feed or further crushed to extract corn oil, for food or biodiesel production uses.

    Most Infrastructure In-place – There are few changes that would need to be made to widely adopt ethanol. Most automobiles available in the U.S. are Flex Fuel capable and there are roughly 2,000 stations already serving E85. While most of these stations are lumped in the Midwest, they are increasing nationwide.

    Cons

    Food vs. Fuel – 2.4 to 2.8 gallons of ethanol can be produced per bushel of corn. As a result, there has been massive media coverage over the use of food as fuel. While there are mountains of findings showing how the use of corn has increased food costs and equal amounts showing it does not, in the end food crops are being used as fuel, making corn-based ethanol inferior to cellulosic ethanol in this regard.

    Reduced MPG – Based on 2009 flex fuel vehicles, E85 miles per gallon is expected to be roughly 28.5% lower in the city and 26.5% lower on the highway. This means it takes 1.35 to 1.40 gallons of E85 to equal the mileage of 1.00 gallons of gasoline.

    Fuel Transportation – Ethanol absorbs water and is corrosive. which make it difficult to ship through existing pipelines from the Midwest of the U.S. where most production occurs. Remedies include shipping or building dedicated ethanol pipelines, however the most likely scenario seems to involve rail or road transport. The best scenario would be local ethanol plants, with the easiest way to accomplish this through continued development of cellulosic ethanol, where feedstocks are abundant everywhere as opposed to corn or sugar.

    Water Absorbtion – Ethanol absorbs water, which can contaminate it as a fuel and makes it more difficult to ship through pipelines. As a result, ethanol has a shorter shelf and tank life than gasoline.

    Fueling Locations – There are roughly 2,000 E85 fueling stations in the U.S. with the majority in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. A U.S. E85 fueling station map and locator can be found here.

    Plan Outline

    Web Design Business Plan

    Ibrio Inc. is a full-service Internet solutions provider for small businesses. We focus mainly on the Web, offering the following as our key ‘Bread Butter’ website services:

    • Design and development.
    • Marketing and analysis.
    • Hosting and maintenance.

    We currently offer the following secondary services:

    • E-commerce development.
    • Website renovations and upgrades.
    • Application development (i.e. chatrooms, message boards, online polling, live-feed audio/video, etc.).
    • Website maintenance training.
    • Internet/website education seminars.
    • Database construction.

    We have plans to offer the following services within the next year:

    • Internet access service for small businesses.
    • Local Area Network (LAN) installation.
    • Intranet setup and installation.
    • Result-based website marketing.

    3.1 Service Description

    Website Design and Development: The service that we offer to small businesses is modeled after the service that larger Web development firms offer Fortune 1000 companies in the sense that it is completely customized and unique to each individual client.

    Website Marketing and Analysis: After we build the website for our client, or a new client introduces us to their pre-existing site, we offer this service. As experts of the Web, we can analyze and test a website based on an established set of standards that account for the website’s aesthetic value, scalability, functionality, ease-of-use, and main customer base. After an analysis has been made, we then explore and present to the client a detailed list of the most efficient Internet marketing tools and methods available to them within the constraints of their budget. This type of service is pertinent to our company given the fact that a very large percentage of our clients are on a tight budget and can only afford to take advantage of marketing efforts that are targeted directly at their desired demographic.

    Website Hosting and Maintenance: This service is offered for two reasons. The first reason is because they are both ongoing, continual services that we can use to establish and maintain a strong residual income. The second reason for offering these services is to allow for packaging together with other services either Ibrio Inc. offers, or services an outside company can provide, hence allowing us to expand our range of small business Internet services.

    3.2 Sales Literature

    Ibrio Inc. currently distributes a sales folder with all the pertinent information about our company and services. This folder includes our strong points, history, portfolio examples, and pricing packages info. It also contains facts based on the growth and popularity of the Internet for small businesses.

    Ibrio Inc. currently operates and maintains a fully-functioning website that provides information about the company, plus a variety of helpful resources for small business owners which we will be constantly updating.

    In the next six months, we plan to produce and distribute bulk mail and fax flyers promoting our Web development and hosting services to small businesses in Central PA to solicit new business.

    We have plans to offer a more compact version of our main sales folder in a brochure format. This brochure will be available both as a mailer to interested parties and as a sales solicitation in area businesses.

    3.3 Fulfillment

    For the website design, development, marketing, analysis, and maintenance we will employ industry professionals to handle our clients’ needs. Working for the company presently is Brandon Andrews, a professional website development engineer and strategist with four years of experience in the commercial Web development industry. To keep employee costs low, we have designed a “team” development system that will consist of two full-time sales people and three full-time Web developers. Of the Web developers, one position will be filled by a highly-qualified senior Web professional and two lesser-qualified, lower paid developers. All three will work full-time on separate projects provided to them by the sales people. However, the senior developer will have the duty of maintaining the same high quality level of work in the junior developers’ projects, that our clients have learned to expect from us now.

    For the website hosting services we offer, Ibrio Inc. has formed several alliances with industry leaders to provide top-rate, reliable hosting solutions. Forming the alliances has allowed us much flexibility in important hosting features, customizability, and it has drove costs down dramatically. All these benefits are crucial to preserving the integrity of our company as being a ‘fully-rounded Internet solutions provider’ for small businesses.

    3.4 Technology

    It is a given that technology and keeping up with new innovations strongly influence our business. We operate a Windows® based Local Area Network (LAN) in the office that is equipped with the most current software and hardware tools available to meet our project requirements. Within the next year, we will be investing in additional tools that will extend our capabilities in handling various types of program files (i.e. Macintosh computers, large capacity data storage, and high-end image scanners). We also have plans to purchase licensing agreements with our major software vendors to allow for automatic upgrades in new software tools.

    Currently we own and operate both a professional digital and film camera for the purpose of offering on-site and in-house product and business photography to our clients. We would like to improve upon these services in the near future by purchasing a more complete photography system, it has been our experience that this is a service many small businesses are recognizing as a crucial part of their online marketing efforts and would take advantage of it were we to offer such a service.

    3.5 Future Services

    Local Area Network Installation: These days, a quickly increasing number of small businesses are using computers as a necessary tool in the everyday operations of the company. We would like to be able to expand our current services to meet this new demand. We will handle every aspect of setting up a small business with an internal network of computers from purchasing, installing, and configuring the machines to software integration and educating the employees on proper usage and operating functions.

    Intranet Setup Installation: In our plan, after developing an Internet website for outside marketing purposes, we would like to offer the service of implementing the website into the network for use in all the business day-to-day operations. This would include extensive product/service cataloging, vital employee and management information, sharing of accounting and inventory details, etc. all intended for strictly company uses.

    Internet Access for Small Business: This feature would act as another residual, packageable service. We would target small businesses exclusively allowing us to provide more flexibility and affordability to our clients through discounted high volume rates, value added service packages, and much more aggressive technical support services.

    Result-based Marketing: This is a service that no small business can turn down. We have plans to offer aggressive, intensified marketing services with the fees based solely on results. To achieve this, we are in the process of forming multiple partnerships and alliances with industry specific Internet websites and various other software and service-oriented companies that provide specific marketing services and tools based on results achieved. We feel as though offering this rare service will dramatically increase our portfolio of clients.

    Primary Focus:

    Effective Medication Use
    To assure the meaningful use of standardized electronic health records (EHR) that supports safe, efficient, and effective medication use, continuity of care, and provide access to the patient-care services of pharmacists with other members of the interdisciplinary patient care team.

    Pharmacist’s Role in HIT
    To assure the pharmacist’s role of providing patient-care services are integrated into the National HIT interoperable framework.

    The Collaborative’s Guiding Principles

    • Identify (through the consensus work of expert panelists) the minimum data set and functional electronic health record (EHR) requirements for the delivery, documentation, and billing of pharmacist-provided medication management services. Such requirements include access to key medical information such as laboratory data, and bidirectional communication flow among all practitioners;
    • Structure and support implementation of a Pharmacy Practitioner HIT roadmap (Roadmap). The Roadmap is a document that directs and establishes benchmarks. These benchmarks will describe the development, implementation and application of technology in an efficient and effective manner for pharmacists to affect improved medication use;
    • Build cooperative relationships within pharmacy and among pharmacy and other stakeholders to communicate and advocate for the Pharmacy Practitioner minimum data set and Roadmap leading to a certified EHR as defined in the Federal Register [1] .
    • Ensure pharmacy representation on key HIT-related committees and workgroups.

    Accessing the host file system from a Docker container on OS

    Accessing the host file system from a Docker container on OS X or Windows

    21 December 2015

    Mounting (or sharing) a directory from the Docker daemon host into a container is simple enough. Example:

    However, on OS X and Windows, the Docker daemon (currently) runs inside of a Linux VM, that by default is run using VirtualBox. (Since Docker only runs natively on Linux) So, you d be mounting a folder from the Linux VM. which is probably not what you want if you want to share files from your host machine into the container.

    Thankfully, VirtualBox allows sharing of folders from your host machine into the VM where the Docker daemon resides. The Docker Linux VM is also auto-configured to mount either /Users (OS X) or C:\Users (Windows) into /Users on the Linux VM:

    This means we can mount /Users from the Linux VM into a container, allowing it access to your underlying host/physical system s files in /Users (OS X) or C:\Users (Windows).

    Here s an example I used when playing around with the TensorFlow Docker image :

    This mounted /Users (from the local host file system) into /host/Users. so I had access to source code files I was editing. (You could also make the container mount the file system as read-only by appending :ro to the -v argument.)

    To share other directories on your host system, you d just need to add those to the Shared Folders for the VirtualBox Linux VM, then use another -v argument to the docker command to mount them into the container.

    Note that with this method you re going through two levels of mounting/sharing: From the ultimate host system to the Linux VM (via VirtualBox s shared folders) and then from the Linux VM to the container. The first is likely to have a performance impact, so I wouldn t use it in production. Then again, for production you should probably be using the native Linux version of Docker.

    hosting server

    Related Terms

    A server dedicated to hosting a service or services for users. Hosting servers are most often used for hosting Web sites but can also be used for hosting files, images, games and similar content. Hosting servers can be shared among many clients (shared hosting servers) or dedicated to a single client (dedicated servers), the latter of which is particularly common for larger Web sites where the hosting needs of the Web site owner necessitate more control and/or bandwidth.

    Can I use a high-end desktop in place of a server?


    #

    Server vs. High-End PC

    Now that you know your business needs a server, one of your first questions is probably can you use a high-end desktop PCs instead of a dedicated server.

    Once you’ve determined that your business needs a server. one of the first questions you should ask is whether or not you can use a high-end desktops instead of having to invest in a new server. This is a common question, especially during these times of limited resources and tight budgetary constraints.

    While a high-end PC can often work and function as a server in a pinch, especially for certain roles such as file serving, there are several reasons a dedicated server makes a better long-term investment. Some of a dedicated server’s key advantages over a high-end PC include:

    1. Reliability
    2. Performance
    3. Scalability
    4. Security
    5. Long-term Cost Savings

    Reliability and Performance

    One of the most important differences between servers and high-end desktop computers is the use of higher quality hardware in servers that has built-in failproof protection in the form of redundancy. If a desktop component fails, it typically impacts only one user, whereas if a server component fails it can impact a large number of users or even an entire business.

    Redundancy is particularly important for storage, where RAID (redundant array of inexpensive disks) is typically utilized to keep a server up and running even if a hard drive crashes, as well as for power, where backup power sources are utilized to keep a server operational even if the main power supply goes down. These components and other hardware in a server can typically be replaced with minimal or no disruption to users.

    Servers also typically utilize hardware specifically tailored to the needs of businesses, including multiple processors and plenty of RAM to prevent performance degradation when supporting a large number of users.

    Scalability and Security

    Server Scalability: Servers are designed with scalability in mind, so as your business grows your server will have little trouble supporting increases of data, users and network traffic. While a high-end personal computer may meet the existing needs of a smaller business, there’s a high probability that it won’t be able to keep up as the company expands and its network needs increase.

    Server Security: Security can be implemented more efficiently and effectively with servers, since critical business data resides on one central server computer as opposed to being spread out over a large number of computers and storage devices like flash drives. Backing up that data and preventing data loss in the case of a disaster are also much easier tasks when dealing with a central resource and data controller like a server.

    Reduced Administration

    Reduced administration and long-term cost: While you can certainly expect a higher up-front cost when investing in a server as opposed to utilizing an existing high-end desktop, over the long run you’re likely to see a lower total cost of ownership with a server for several reasons. First, with your server serving as a central resource controller there will be fewer components to have to support in terms of administration and maintenance. Additionally, with servers being designed to allow many users to share applications and connections to the Internet and wide area networks (WANs), a high-end server can reduce the need for duplication of hardware as well as additional computers in many cases.

    Choosing the Right Server — Servers are the unsung heroes of the corporate computing environment, working behind the scenes to help get the maximum benefit from the personal computers that people use every day. Before investing in server hardware, you need to consider applications, storage, processor, form factor, and more.

    Advantages of a Server

    While it may seem at first glance to be easier and more cost-effective to utilize a high-end desktop computer as a server rather than purchasing one, a dedicated server offers several key advantages that make it the better choice in most all cases. These advantages include increased reliability and performance, scalability, security, reduced administration and lower total cost of ownership.

    And while a higher initial cost may be an inevitability with a server, there’s a greater chance that over time your business will see reduced costs and increased user productivity with a dedicated server versus a stand-in high-end PC.

    Congratulations! You now have a better understanding of the differences between a server and a high-end desktop computer as well as the benefits that a server can bring to your business!

    Effective social media analytics

    Effective social media analytics

    Monday 10 June 2013 12.09 BST First published on Monday 10 June 2013 12.09 BST

    Six months ago, your company launched a new product. Last month, your sales dipped. Why? And how interested are people in your competitor’s new product? Don’t pay money for a focus group or a market survey that will deliver data three months from now. Listen to the social network instead. It’s 2013, and social business isn’t about collecting Facebook “likes” anymore. Welcome to the age of social media analytics.

    Online social networks bleed information. Every time someone posts something on Twitter, Facebook, or Pinterest, they create a digital footprint. Every time someone else reads it, or watches a YouTube video, they add to the data trail. Facebook is currently building a data centre in Sweden the size of 11 football fields, joining two others in America, just to collect and process the stuff. You can analyse it to make a variety of business decisions.

    “In the past, if you offered a marketing director a box that she could put on her desk that would let her listen into all the conversations about her brand and her competitors’ brands, she’d have thought you so stark raving mad that she would have had security walk you off the premises,” says Philip Sheldrake, managing partner at Euler Partners, which advises companies on how to use social media properly. Now, it’s routine.

    The information that you look for will depend on your business goals. Some companies use social media to push people through the sales funnel to a conversion. “If you’re selling autos, you might be tracking how many times you generate a test drive in a dealership [from a social media campaign],” says Jay Palter, a personal brand and content marketing strategist from Edmonton, Canada. Others concentrate on brand awareness, and don’t worry too much about who buys. Still others are particularly focused on brand trust, or increasing customer satisfaction, or perhaps they simply want to understand why customers do what they do. Non-profit organisations and governments may be more interested in simply getting a message out. All of these goals require different types of analysis.

    A marketing officer might track customers and prospects on social media to see what key words they are discussing, and then fold those key words and concepts into status updates or tweets, to be more relevant to that audience. Perhaps she might monitor which messages attract the most readers to click on a link to her web site. She could then spend more money promoting that content on a social network to reach even more customers.

    There are a variety of social media analytics tools to help marketing experts do all this. Some, such as HootSuite, span multiple channels, while others focus on particular networks such as Twitter. Some tools include workflow; they not only enable you to monitor the “buzz” around particular keywords, but also allow social media managers to connect information to others in the organisation. Tweets complaining about a particular product issue could be routed through to a customer service department, for example.

    Customer feedback raises another issue: sentiment analysis. Some tools analyse what’s being said online to create an index of user sentiment about a topic. Sentiment140, for example, tries to mine opinion about particular products or brands.

    But as Marshall Sponder, social media analytics expert and author of the book Social Media Analytics says, sentiment analysis is an inexact science. “The way that people speak isn’t uniform,” he says. Opinion mining can be a useful trend indicator, but it isn’t gospel.

    The best analytics will put social media data in context, says Sponder. He defines context in various ways. Tweets sent from a smartphone often reveal a person’s location. Then, there’s customer history. “Most of the information comes from a customer’s journey; it’s behavioural based,” he adds.

    Things can get really useful when marrying this data with other information in your organisation. Displaying custom results for your online bookstore based on what a visitor had tweeted about that day might push up sales. Perhaps a large percentage of your Facebook followers under the age of 25 are suddenly searching for particular things on your website, raising the possibility of a targeted campaign.

    Maybe a trend is only just emerging. “When we used to analyse our marketplaces, we used to resort to statistical significance,” Sheldrake points out. Companies could not afford to act on a trend that wasn’t very strong. “But now, we can start looking for weak signals because there is zero cost to that. We have made ourselves a lot more sensitive to real-time responses.”

    The problem with marrying social media analytics with management information is that in many cases, these other data sources are siloed within different departments. Big data may be useful, but it is also fragmented and hard to reassemble. As social media analytics become more sophisticated, the future barriers to use maybe as organisational as they are technical.

    Show me the money

    For many CEOs, the terms “retweet” and “influencer” won’t mean nearly as much as one simple phrase: “ROI”. Return on investment is a critical metric for those holding the purse strings, but how do you measure ROI in a social media context? It’s simple, says Andrew Bruce Smith, founder of digital communications company Escherman: Follow the traffic.

    “You have to make a clear decision between financial and non-financial outcomes,” he says. Getting 20,000 more Twitter followers is a non-financial outcome. But if you can prove that a percentage of them visited your website because of a tweet, and subsequently bought something, then that counts.

    In this context, one of the most important tools is also completely free: Google Analytics. It tells you how people got to your website, Smith explains, and what they did afterwards. It’s something that Sarah Flaherty, head of content and PR at insurance firm Confused.com, has been using to good effect.

    “Through Google Analytics I tracked the traffic that came to our site, and then what they did,” she says, adding that she can tell if they came directly to the site via one of her social media campaigns or other content channels. “I can tell you from any piece of content whether their next step was to get a quote.”

    Facebook also provides tools for measuring engagement success. Conversion Measurement lets businesses track the number of actions such as registrations or shopping cart checkouts from Facebook ads and sponsored stories, while Page Insights show the level of engagement users have with Facebook content.

    Tracking analytics in enterprise tools such as Salesforce Buddy Media and Adobe Social are another method of measuring ROI.

    Even if an organisation isn’t focused on sales, it can still tie website traffic from social media campaigns to other objectives, such as communicating a particular message, or getting people talking about a product. If you can quantify that, then you can measure it against your goals.

    Look out for future articles on this site on the importance and impact of ROI.

    Using Your Mobile Phone in Italy #travel, #technology, #cell #phone

    Using Your Mobile Phone in Italy

    We have all become more dependent upon our mobile phones than we ever imagined: they double up as our music player, camera and personal organiser. They keep us connected to social media and enable us to share our experiences worldwide.

    As mobile devices have increased in both popularity and ease of use, there’s been a gradual decline in the U.S and the United Kingdom in public telephones and this is the same in Italy, with many small villages no longer having a street corner telephone.

    If you are visiting Italy and want to use your mobile/cell phone while you are there, here are a few things that you’ll need to know.

    Will my phone work in Italy?

    Italy, like most EU countries, uses the GSM mobile system, meaning that the majority of U.K. mobile devices in circulation will be compatible; however, only 50% of U.S. and Canadian handsets will work in European countries. So before you travel, it’s a good idea to contact your service provider and make enquiries. Also please check your contract, as some providers will require notice that you intend to use your device whilst travelling out of your country of residence.

    Roaming and Charges

    Once you are in Italy, your handset will be ‘roaming’, this means it will be looking for an Italian service provider to connect to. The four Italian service providers are Wind, Vodafone, TIM and Three. Roaming means that you can stay connected at all times, but it does also mean that there can be additional charges. If you have a smartphone, it’s a good idea to turn off data roaming until it is required. Data roaming is when your phone automatically updates internet services, such as Facebook updates, Twitter feeds, etc. One of the biggest complaints from holiday-makers is the high costs accrued for data roaming, so turn it on only when you need to check your email and post on social media.

    One thing to bear in mind is the extra charges that will be incurred while you use your handset abroad. For every incoming call you receive, there will be an additional charge to your handset for the portion of the call that is routed through the host country’s telephone system; some providers will also charge even if you don’t answer the call.

    Local calls and texts may be charged at the local Italian rate, however texts home to your friends and family will also incur further charges. Also bear in mind that if you call or text a friend who is in your holiday group on their non-Italian phone, it will still be considered to be an international communication and subject to your service providers international rates.

    Unlocking your Phone

    One of the easiest ways to keep track of phone charges whilst in Italy is to purchase a SIM card, as all the Italian providers operate pre-paid services. Unfortunately, most mobile handsets are locked and will only be compatible with SIM cards belonging to your service provider. If you contact your service provider and explain that you are travelling and will be using another SIM card while abroad, they will unlock your device or send you a code to do so by SMS. Some providers will try to talk you into taking an international package, but in most cases these work out more expensive than using an Italian SIM card.

    Obtaining an Italian SIM card is relatively easy; all you will need to provide at the point of sale is your address while in the country and your passport, which will be photocopied. Unlike some EU countries where it is possible to purchase a pre-paid card anonymously, this is not possible in Italy, as the details of all telephone users and their numbers are registered.

    Finally, Italian SIM cards expire after a certain period of inactivity. Providers vary from 3 to 12 months; this also includes any credit you may have left, so it’s best to use up the remaining credit and dispose of the card once you return home, as it won’t be worth saving it for another visit a year or two later.

    Also before you change the SIM cards, save your address book to your handset so that it will be available for use with the Italian card and remember to add the (+) sign and country code to the numbers you will be calling while on vacation.

    Cyber Security Tips for Traveling Abroad with Mobile Electronic Devices

    Note: This web page is intended to outline steps, tips, and guidelines that you can use to protect yourself, your information, and your mobile devices when you travel abroad.

    As part of a renowned research university, NDSU’s faculty, scholars, and staff often travel abroad for research, collaboration, continued study, or to present at national gatherings. When traveling to certain countries where there is strong scientific competition, the country is not on friendly terms with the United States, there is civil unrest or political discord, or where violence and crime ar prevalent, they may become victims of cyber-attacks, cybercrime, monitoring or surveillance. This is particularly true if the individual is engaged in classified or proprietary research in a STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) program. Institutional leaders who ar politically or religiously active, fluent speakers of the language, and individual tourists may also be actively targeted.
