Important news from last week.
NBC Universal has patented a new technology that can detect high volume file-sharing swarms, including those using BitTorrent. The system is set up to detect popular pirated files and gathers data that can be used for anti-piracy purposes, business intelligence, and to help ISPs relieve strain on their networks.

You may not be a data analyst but you might have the skills to become one.
Despite swift change in the labour market, we continue to measure workforce supply and demand in an archaic manner - via the supply and demand of job titles.

Pretty interesting article about languages and their importance.
 
How should we decide what makes a language important?
Some langauges are spoken by more than others, but does that make them global?

Yet another technological breakthrough. This could advance the field of economics which relies on simulations to forecast outcomes.
 
"The phase-change neurons are fashioned out of well-understood materials that can scale down to a few nanometres."
They behave like biological neurons, including low power usage and dense scaling.

Fascinating advances in cyber-security. Can't wait to see it perform at DefCon CTF.
A program named Mayhem has provisionally won a competition to find software that does the best job of automatically defending against cyber attacks.

I believe the interesting part of this article is how they used machine learning to find the government trolls.
Chinese government workers fabricate online governments to distract people from revolution.

An interesting article on the US deficit
Obama has overseen the fastest deficit reduction since World War II. Most Americans believe the opposite -- because that's what Republicans told them.

Lovely place for amazing local drinks and a highly recommended bbq shrimp appetizer. Amazing place for a couple especially during the summer.

It is a great carryout place. I generally order on Tuesday or Wednesday nights because I find the food tastes better these nights. It is generally ready in 10/15 min top. I am a local and I thought that after a few years I should give them some credits by rating them. The only reason why it is not 5 star it is because the waiting area could be nicer and I wish the quality was more consistent on other nights. Other than that the people in the kitchen and at the checkout are nice and I like the food!

Rachel has a talent for capturing the right moment. She is flexible and patient. Her knowledge of the Washington D.C. area saved me a lot of time when deciding where to shoot. I will certainly do business with her again!

I was looking for a quick and safe way to send flowers to a friend. I was confused by the other options available on the internet. I found this website and the people provided a very reliable, quick and professional service. I really enjoyed the direct Whatsapp discussion we had and the flexibility and security of using Paypal. I would recommend Garland Florist to English speakers.

I went there for a surprise dinner with my date on a Sunday evening. The items on the menu were all delicious sounding and the atmosphere was very relax. They had a lot os specials that day. We went for the lobster appetizer special, the "Lobster Purse", which is like a wonderful version of lobster dumplings. For the entrées, my date had one of the seafood special, which consisted of scallop clam and lobster (called the Branzini), and I had the meat special, which was a giant 16 ounce veal chop. The seafood and veal were so fresh and I was pleasantly surprised they tasted so good on a Sunday evening. We had a glass of wine each (the Sancerre and the fruity Cote du Rhone Red.) The dessert (we picked the cherry one called the "Amaretto Parfait") was delicious and a fantastic way to close our dinner night. My date is a big seafood and cherry person and she absolutely loved it. It was pricey but everything was cooked very well and the staff took good care of us. It was my second time going there (the first time was a work related lunch) and I will be going back. It was nice to exchange a few words in French with the chef himself. Merci beaucoup!

Great food, great place (so beautiful in the back room especially). Portions are large so you can take some home. Got the Couscous Royale. The presentation was great too.
