rick turoczy 1 Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#Google#NYT#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… In an economic environment where a number of companies are stumbling, it’s important to remember that sometimes even Google makes bad decisions. Such would be the case with Lively, a browser-based virtual world environment – and purported Second Life killer – that Google launched this summer to great fanfare.Now, a little over four months after Lively’s launch, Google has decided to turn the lights out on the alternate reality, announcing that they are discontinuing Lively at the end of this year.Google tried to be polite about pulling the plug:“Since Lively’s launch, we have been delighted to see the creative ways you’ve used the product. We enjoyed hanging out in Jen’s coffee house, and checking out the Brasil Party room. We got a kick out of the YouTube videos in a variety of languages telling stories about your avatars. And we’ve been awed by the elaborate rooms that you’ve constructed, using mosaic tiles and photo gadgets in novel ways.” But ultimately, it decided to shut the whole thing down. Why?There will be all varieties of speculation as to why Lively failed to remain a viable application for Google. Perhaps the traffic Google expected never materialized? Maybe it was going to be too distracting to take on a well-entrenched Linden Labs and its faithful user base? Was the “Windows only” format a problem? Could it be that, in today’s economic conditions, Google simply couldn’t afford to fund it?I think we can take Ockham’s Razor to this one. Because I think the answer is quite simple: It seemed like a good idea at the time. But, in actuality, Lively didn’t offer Google any relevant data. And that, ultimately, is what killed Lively.The world of Google – everything on which Google focuses its time and effort – is built on relevant data. A portion of that world involves making that data searchable. But the far more lucrative portion of that world involves analyzing how users are accessing that data and finding ways to monetize those behaviors.Example? Think of the silliest Google app that you can. I’ll pick Google Mail Goggles, a Gmail Labs feature that makes you answer math questions before you’re allowed to send an email to prevent you from drunk-emailing your friends. But you could take Gmail emoticons, because – honestly – that’s pretty silly too. Even those seemingly ridiculous apps provide thousands of data points through their use: Which users deem themselves “at risk” for sending unwarranted emails? How good are inebriated people at math? What’s the trend of sad emoticons now that the economy has turned? How many people opt for traditional emoticons versus graphic ones? You could go on and on with the potential data points.But those examples only make sense because of one thing: users. It’s much more difficult to make that leap with Lively – which didn’t boast anywhere near the traffic of Gmail – and as such, it just simply didn’t fit in to Google’s larger plan. And when traffic started to tank, it wasn’t worth additional investment, because Google likely wasn’t seeing any relevant application for the data as part of its core structure.Yes, I’m sure other factors came into play, and I’m sure it wasn’t easy to pull the plug on a splashy product that launched mere months earlier. But it’s an important reminder that Google has a larger goal in mind and you’re a big part of it. If you’re not playing, nobody’s paying.

When thinking of retail theft, many envision teenagers shoplifting candy bars. Obviously, it’s much more than that. More than $44 billion in merchandise goes missing across the United States each year, driving up prices for paying customers and filling the coffers of gangs and terrorist organizations. In cities around the United States, a growing number of violent drug store robberies are putting employees and customers at risk, while data breaches siphon off in minutes what would take years to steal from stores.Through collaborations with computer engineers, sociologists and political scientists across campus as well as retail organizations across the country, Dr. Read Hayes of the University of Florida and the team with the Loss Prevention Research Council, or LPRC, works to thwart these criminals.“It’s an opportunity to use academic research to solve real-world problems,” Hayes said. “Retail crime can be very dangerous and violent, but even when it’s not, it affects everyone.”- Sponsor – Factors from the height of the shelves to the placement of the cash registers influence criminal decision-making, and the University of Florida and the LPRC want to understand them all. Through partnerships with a growing number of retail chain stores, LPRC researchers test innovations in theft prevention, watching how customers and criminals alike react.Just as interesting to the scientists are the deterrents that criminals don’t notice. Some, like hidden cameras, are meant to be invisible. But most are meant to be seen, because the goal of retail theft prevention isn’t to catch thieves, but deter them from stealing in the first place.Global Commitment to LP Research and DevelopmentThe LPRC conducts research to develop retail theft, crime and loss control solutions that improve the performance of its members and the retail industry. Founded in 2001 by leading retailers and Dr. Read Hayes in an effort to support the evidence-based needs of loss prevention decision-makers, the LPRC has grown to over 45 major retail chains. To date the LPRC has conducted over 90 real world loss prevention research projects for retailers and partners. The scope of these projects includes:Large-scale field experiments to provide decision-makers with impact and ROI dataDevelopment of statistical models for shortage reductionEmployee dishonesty and shoplifter dynamics researchSupply chain and violent crime research and developmentThe Loss Prevention Research Council conducts rigorous asset protection research and development combining professionals with practical loss prevention experience and expertise with university-trained research backgrounds. The team consists of full time and part time administrative personnel, project managers, and researchers.Innovation, collaboration and evaluation have been a focal point of the LPRC since its inception. All of the research and development projects conducted by the team and the LPRC solution partners have provided a wealth of information and practical learning experiences that help to prevent retail theft and other crimes, improve safety in the stores, and ultimately reduce retail shrink.Sharing the MessageAt LP Magazine, our goal is to provide an additional channel to help communicate the LPRC message. Beginning in April 2016 the team at the Loss Prevention Research Council has generously agreed to provide their insights and expertise to the loss prevention community by contributing ongoing articles to LP Magazine, which will be shared through our digital offerings. Our first article was provided by Brittany Griffin on “Maximizing the Millennial Potential in the Loss Prevention Industry,” discussing how our ability to effectively leverage skills, convey information and feedback will directly impact productivity. We are looking forward to more thoughts from the entire LPRC research team, and are excited to share these insights with the loss prevention community on a regular basis.To learn more about Dr. Hayes, the research efforts of the University of Florida, and the Loss Prevention Research Council, we encourage you to read “The Science of Stealing” from the University of Florida.You can also read the articles provided by Dr. Hayes in his regular column in the print edition of LP Magazine, as well as the feature article “From Store Detective to Research Scientist with the Loss Prevention Research Council” with Dr. Hayes.

Minor petty larceny charges often become felonies punishable with prison time under a policy retailers employ against shoplifters, according to a new report from Manhattan public defenders.A month-long investigation conducted by New York County Defender Services data analysts found that 39% of its clients charged with burglary in the third degree — a felony — had actually taken items worth less than $1,000, a crime typically prosecuted as misdemeanor petty larceny.The reported thefts took place at 14 different stores: Bloomingdale’s, Burlington Coat Factory, Marshall’s, Rite Aid, Sephora, Fine Fare, Macy’s, Century 21, DSW, Duane Reade, the Apple Store, Walgreens, the Gap and Lord & Taylor. Several of the stores, including Duane Reade, had reported shoplifting incidents at several Manhattan locations.- Sponsor – Outside Manhattan, petty larceny cases rarely become third-degree burglary charges, said Christopher Boyle, director of data research and policy at New York County Defender Services.

Water utilities have a challenging but important charge – to deliver their customers’ water as reliably as possible while operating efficiently. However, the current state of the art in the water industry can limit both reliability and energy efficiency. Here’s an example of what I mean:We have a customer who installed our software suites on their 5-pump pump station. As we were learning how the customer operates the station, the operations manager told us that pump 2 at the station was the operators’ favorite pump. Indeed, as we looked at their operating data, we found that pump 2 was their lead pump, meaning that whenever the station needed to deliver water, pump 2 would be the first pump to turn on.However, once our Asset Management Suite software performed automated tests on each of the five pumps at the station, it was clear that pump 2 was a poor choice for a lead pump. Here is a picture of what pump 2’s measured head and efficiency curves looked like in comparison to factory (brand new) curves:Pump 2’s pump curves: Comparing the factory efficiency curve (yellow) to the tested efficiency curve (red) shows that the pump has worn significantly – from a peak efficiency of about 85 percent to a peak efficiency of about 59 percent. Comparing the factory capacity curve (light blue) to the tested capacity curve (dark blue) shows that the pump has also worn in terms of capacity.In contrast, pump 1’s measured pump curves very nearly match the factory curves:Optimization calculations show that pump 1 uses about 25 percent less energy to deliver almost double the flow of pump 2. It is clear that pump 2 should not have been the “favorite pump” at this station. After seeing the results of the pump tests, the station operators took pump 2 offline.Surely this case is an outlier, right? No. Unfortunately, the station operators were completely unaware of the difference in performance and efficiency between pump 1 and pump 2 because they had no data or metrics that they could use to compare the two pumps. This lack of data is standard throughout the water industry. Most often, utilities employ a “run-to-failure” maintenance schedule – meaning that pumps are replaced when they become so worn that they stop pumping. As we saw with our friends at the 5-pump pump station, this means that pumps can operate for years with significantly reduced energy efficiency. Utilities are essentially “flying blind” in terms of the health of some of their most important assets – their pumps.In response to this problem, Specific Energy has developed a simple but effective metric that operators and engineers can use to track pump efficiency and target specific pumps for predictive maintenance – the Pump Health Index (PHI). Specific Energy’s Asset Management Suite automatically calculates PHI after a pump is tested by taking the ratio of the peak tested efficiency value to the peak factory efficiency value. For example, in the case that I mentioned before, pump 2 scored a PHI of 69, while pump 1 scored a PHI of 102.The utility is now installing the Asset Management Suite on more sites to acquire valuable PHI metrics on each of their pumps.Pump Health Index is a simple but powerful metric that all utilities should be tracking to improve the operation and maintenance of their systems, but new insight into pump health and operation should not end with PHI. In a follow up post, I will cover some more advanced metrics that utilities can track to achieve the best practices in pump station asset management and operation.What questions do you have?
South Carolina star running back Marcus Lattimore suffered one of the most gruesome injuries seen on a football field Saturday when he was hit by Tennessee’s Eric Gordon and his leg flapped in the wind and onto the turf, as if it was snapped in half below his right knee.”I don’t know that I’ve ever seen anything like that,” Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier said.The official injury announced Sunday is awful for anyone, but potentially career-ending for a running back like Latitmore, who was sure to be an early-round NFL draft pick: a dislocated knee.Hardly ever are players from both teams impacted by a player’s injury, but both teams were emotional by what they witnessed in the second quarter of South Carolina’s 38-35 victory.Lattimore was running through the left side when he was struck around the knees by Gordon, Lattimore’s right leg whipping around and slamming against the turf. South Carolina trainers immediately rushed to his side, keeping Lattimore flat on his back as the junior attempted to sit up and see the injury.“I just tried to tell him to stay mentally strong,” said receiver Ace Sanders, whose eyes teared up when discussing Lattimore. “I saw the look in in his eyes when he was on the ground and he was really heartbroken.”Coming into the game, Spurrier had said Lattimore was 100 percent and would carry the load for the Gamecocks. Lattimore rushed for 65 yards, including a breakaway 28-yard TD run, in the first half against Tennessee after coming in with 597 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns this season.He became an instant star as a freshman, rushing for 1,149 yards and 17 touchdowns. Lattimore was on his way to eclipsing those numbers as a sophomore until the injury at Mississippi State. He holds South Carolina records with 41 overall touchdowns and 38 on the ground.Last year Lattimore had surgery to repair ligaments and cartilage in his left knee and needed six months of rehabilitation and recovery before he was cleared to return to action.This injury, however, might be too devastating for Lattimore to overcome.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Tuesday that the chamber’s version of the fiscal 2020 NDAA would not be slowed by minority calls this week to delay its passage until after the Democratic presidential debates, CQ reported.McConnell, speaking from the Senate floor Tuesday, said Democrats will have to filibuster the annual defense policy bill if they want to delay final votes on the measure this week, according the report.Democrats have sought to slow the NDAA’s passage by including a key amendment that would block the White House from striking Iran without congressional approval, and requesting delay of a vote until after this week’s Democratic presidential debates, according to Roll Call.“Postpone legislation on our national defense to accommodate the presidential race? In the middle of this ongoing crisis overseas? Come on. Come on,” McConnell said, according to the report.Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Monday called for postponing the NDAA until after the debates so every senator could be present to vote on the Iran amendment.Democrats will have to decide Wednesday whether to deny cloture on the bill, which requires 60 votes to advance, temporarily halting a chamber vote until after the July 4 recess so all senators could vote on the Iran amendment.Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has also offered an amendment to end the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force, which gives the president broad authority to wage military campaigns without congressional approval. Paul has also threatened to stage a filibuster if denied a floor vote on his proposal.Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. Tia Dufour ADC AUTHOR
