Yahoo Is For Sale, Maybe For Nothing?!?!

So, what makes Yahoo worth so much less than what it owns on paper?

The question is whether anyone will pay for the struggling Internet giant.

Genetic discrimination is here.

A FEW WEEKS into sixth grade, Colman Chadam had to leave school because of his DNA.

The situation, odd as it may sound, played out like this. Colman has genetic markers for cystic fibrosis, and kids with the inherited lung disease can’t be near each other because they’re vulnerable to contagious infections. Two siblings with cystic fibrosis also attended Colman’s middle school in Palo Alto, California in 2012. So Colman was out, even though he didn’t actually have the disease, according to a lawsuit that his parents filed against the school district. The allegation? Genetic discrimination.

Ivan Bigelow (Dezmo)'s profile photorobby hart's profile photo
So you say that is discrimination do you? Is there not a better way to look
at it? IE they were trying to save his life as well as others?

Apart from not being confident of this "advice" as it sounds rather outside
the medical fraternity's assured knowledge levels. But if he has been
excluded, who has been discriminated against?

You do realise that many people have to be isolated from others at times
for the health of all. Is that, too, discrimination? Or just plain old
common health sense.

Some days a day is like a pubic hair on a toilet seat. You just get pissed

Forget Fingerprints, Brain Scans Could Be the New Passwords

The process involves popping on an electroencephalograms (EEG) cap and watching a series of 500 images, including words, celebrity faces, and simple stock photos. Each image flashes on the screen for only half a second. The EEG monitors your reaction to them, and checks them against existing reactions.

If a bee flashes on the screen, a person who is strongly allergic to bee stings will probably have a different reaction than a person who keeps bees for a living. As the number of images and reactions add up, the chances of faking an identity go down.

An early test positively identified one person out of a group of 32 between 82 and 97 percent of the time. The machine can now pick one person out of 30 with 100 percent accuracy.

Now...who's going to hack this one...? ;)

A new system will set aside fingerprints and facial recognition, and start doing brain scans as positive identification. Using brain imaging and a series of words and images, it will scan your mind to figure out if you’re really you.
Thomas Ally's profile photoYifat Cohen's profile photoShawn Willden's profile photoPierre Provost's profile photo
+Thomas Ally that's no different with fingerprints, which are affected by damage to (or loss of) fingers. Any biometric can fail due to damage, which is why there always has to be a backup option (e.g. password).

The problem with this biometric, at least with the current technology, is that it's too slow and cumbersome. Watching a sequence of 500 images at 1/2 second each takes more than four minutes. However, it's in its early stages and will undoubtedly improve, perhaps enough to make it convenient. It definitely has a very long way to go to become practical, though.

Google's Project Skybender is similar to Project Loon: it aims to beam internet from up above. Instead of using balloons, though, it will use drones.

+Sashank Narayan Yes, but at the time, 3G meant a minimum specific speed which was called "3G speed" in the advertising. So then people started going "new 4G speeds" but there was never any consistency on what a "4G speed" was and as the article pointed out could be slower than 3G in some areas. Looking back on it, it's clearer, but at the time the advertisements were purposely deceptive.

For example this:

Hi, I'm Yifat - Your G+GoTo Gal, and I am passionate about the possibilities Google plus brings to our lives and to our business. You can find me discussing Google+ strategies, Google+ marketing, engagement and relationship building on my weekly hangout show - Unscripted!

But what rocks my boat, what really gets me going, is the relationships I’ve found here - on Google+. I have met amazing people who become a new family to me and with whom I now spend much of my time. These relationships and what they brought with them, are the reason I am so passionate about Google+ and I can not wait for you to experience this level of engagement, this sense of community and this depth of conversation and ideas. They will change your life for the better. Trust me on that.

I walk my talk

I am now making a living coaching, engaging and speaking about the topic I am most passionate about - Google plus and Google plus hangouts, and I can show you how to do the same: How to turn your passion into real income.

----- ★ღ ----- Ah, but you want to know more about me...? ----- ★ღ -- 

I’m a lover. I love life. I love my amazing husband and my incredibly cute son. I love to laugh, eat, try new things, experiment, travel (oh boy, do I love to travel). I love to push my own limits. I love to argue. I love movies and learning new things. I love compliments. I love to play. I love to read. I love to be right. I love to be loved and I really love to love. 

My Myers Briggs is ENTP (Extravert, iNtuitive, Thinking, Perceiving ), so before you're shocked by my perverse sense of humor or if you want to understand why I enjoy playing devil's advocate, read this.

Google+ marketing is the 2nd love of my life (family comes in #1). I spend most of my time playing with it and showing others how to succeed in it. I love talking about it, figuring out how it works and then how to break it, discussing it with other people and finding solutions to common problems. I own a social media marketing company, Motech Marketing and I love helping people accomplish their online goals easily and quickly. 

I really love what I do. I work from home, with people that are fun to be around and a pleasure to collaborate with. I always meet new people that I can service and I just love helping them realize how easy it is to increase their online visibility and profits.

I discovered my water heater broke just as my little toddler was shivering naked in the bath tab, Thursday night. I did what any mother would do - I heated water in the kettle, washed him briefly and got him into his warm PJ as soon as I could, feeling grateful that the next day was Friday - I could still get it repaired before the weekend. Or that's what I thought... My landlord couldn't get a hold of her handyman, and all the people they recommended weren't available that weekend. So was Teva Construction. He was fully booked, and still - he showed up. He repaired the water heater quickly, but warned me that it is out of warranty and there's a good chance it won't last long. Sure enough, that night, it stopped working again. The next day, on a Saturday, while I was at SXSW, Refael (the owner of Teva Constraction) acted like a true friend would - he arranged with my landlord to have the water heater replaced, he ensured that the replacement would take place that same day - on a Saturday, without an extra charge of an emergency call, and he followed up with a phone call to make sure the water temperature was to my liking, ready to send his guy back out or even come himself, if it wasn't. If you're looking for a handyman who treats you and your home like family, not like a side job - Teva Construction is your only smart choice.

Dr. Murphy is the best chiropractor I've ever worked with. Not only is he knowledgeable and kind, but he never has you waiting (which is super important for those of us with busy schedules). He's very flexible with his scheduling as well - always working around your calendar to fit you in. He's working with a great masseuse that is sharing the same office, so that you can get both your chiropractic and massage done with one visit. His fees are reasonable and he'll work with you to get you in and healed even if you don't have insurance. Highly recommended.

Remember when you went to your doctor and he knew everything about you, because he KNEW you? Remember how he sat with you, un-rushed, listened to you, gave you his full attention and the best treatment to get you back on your feet in no time? This is how life is with Dr. Stavinoha. If you're looking for someone who's a doctor because he truly enjoys helping and healing and not for any other reason - Dr. Stavinoha is the only doctor you should see. I can't wait till my kid is old enough to see him, since I don't trust anyone else but him.
