Tech company uses Portal mod to find topnotch recruits

first_imgIf it was good enough to win the Second World War, it’s good enough for WibiData’s next crop of employees. The 3-year-old data management platform developer has taken a page from the British and American intelligence services, who used newspaper crosswords to identify promising new recruits in the fight to decrypt Axis communications. Now WibiData has taken out a puzzle challenge of its own, this time in search of creativity and piercing intelligence, skills that are rarely visible on a resume. The company has posted a set of custom levels for Valve’s Portal 2, at the end of which is a PIN for applying to work at the company.Even leaving aside all the free coverage this stunt has gotten them — good both for their profile and their chances of attracting top-notch talent — this initiative makes sense. Not only does it naturally screen for more media-savvy individuals (and make it even clearer how terrible is the modern job market for older workers), but it could potentially lead the company to hire based on skills rather than experience.If the company plans to collect data about an applicant’s run through the game (time to completion, spots of difficulty, etc), then their decision might be even more informed. All that remains to be seen is whether that strategy will pay dividends in the end.Across the board, testing is coming back into vogue with the corporate managerial class. Whether you’re being evaluated for a skill-set or a personality trait, hiring managers are returning to the idea that who you are is more important than what you’ve done. For some this will be an advantage, for others an insurmountable hurdle. Whether it ends up being a better hiring practice – for either the employer or applicant – remains to be seen.Below is a teaser trailer for the project, which is freely available whether or not you plan to apply.last_img read more

CMS has initiated its review of this request.Positron emission tomography (PET) is a minimally invasive imaging procedure used to assess metabolic activity and perfusion in various organs or tissues. Images are obtained by processing of emissions from positron-emitting radioisotopes that are usually administered intravenously. Sodium fluoride F-18 (NaF-18) is a radioisotope commonly used in oncologic PET imaging procedures to detect bone metastasis in cancer and is the focus of this national coverage analysis.The rate of NaF-19 uptake provides information on the tissues being studied. NaF-18 PET evaluation can indicate the probable presence or absence of bone metastasis based upon observed differences in biologic activity of adjacent tissues.Section 220.6.19 of the National Coverage Determination (NCD) Manual establishes the requirement for prospective data collection under CED for NaF-18 PET for bone metastasis in cancer.At this time, CMS is soliciting comments on the NOPR’s request. The public comment period will be open for 30 days, until April 16, 2015. PET facilities participating in the NOPR are encouraged to provide comments (which can be entered directly online on the CMS website at this link). Additionally, PET facilities are encouraged to ask referring physicians who frequently use NaF-18 PET in the care of their patients to submit comments to CMS indicating how NaF-18 PET has helped with patient management. Comments that cite scientific evidence (including unpublished data), including the full range of uses of NaF-18 PET in oncology and the uses of NaF-18 PET in benign bone and joint diseases, will be particularly valuable to CMS.  For more information: www.cms.gov FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | PET-CT | June 19, 2019 United Imaging Announces First U.S. Clinical Install of uMI 550 Digital PET/CT United Imaging announced the first U.S. clinical installation of the uMI 550 Digital positron emission tomography/… read more News | Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers | July 16, 2019 NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes Completes Construction on Beloit, Wis.

Top 10 Cities with MillionDollar Homes

first_img Share Home Sales homes HOUSING LendingTree Median Price 2018-07-04 Radhika Ojha Homes costing over $1 million are not as common as one would think. But there are some cities that have more real estate costing a million dollars or more, according to a study by LendingTree, which ranked the top 50 cities by the share of homes valued over $1 million.For the rankings, LendingTree looked at cities with such homes in its property value database, which is a collection of real estate data of more than 155 million U.S. properties.It found that like tech-startups, homes in this range were most concentrated San Jose, California. More than 53 percent of homes in this tech hub exceeded the million-dollar mark, the study found.The only other city that came close to San Jose was its neighboring city, San Francisco that took the second place on these rankings with a little over 40 percent of homes priced at an average of $1.4 million. Million-dollar homes in San Jose in comparison averaged $1.5 million.Los Angeles, another California hot spot for million-dollar houses came in third with 17.23 percent of homes in the million-dollar range. New York, with more than 11 percent of homes in the million-dollar range, and another California city, San Diego, with over 10 percent homes costing $1 million rounded off the top five.The study also found that most cities in the top 10 rankings were on the coasts with the exception of Denver, which was ranked 10th with 2.65 percent homes in the range of $1 million.Apart from the Colorado city, Seattle, Boston, Washington, D.C., and Miami were also among the 10 cities with the highest concentration of houses costing $1 million or more.LendingTree also found that cities with the least concentration of homes costing a million dollars or more were in the rust belt. “These are also generally more affordable cities and have median home values below $200,000 with the exception of Hartford, Connecticut,” the study revealed. Additionally, it found that Buffalo, New York had the lowest shares of homes valued at over $1 million with only one out of every 1,000 homes in that area passing the threshold.Other cities that were at the bottom of the list included Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Memphis, Columbus, Louisville, Oklahoma City, and Cincinnati.Learn more about the where buyers are spending the most on homes:10 Most Expensive U.S. Neighborhoods July 4, 2018 804 Views center_img in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Top 10 Cities with Million-Dollar Homeslast_img read more

Driving Title Forward

first_imgDriving Title Forward Share Editor’s Note: This feature originally appeared in the July issue of MReport.When it comes to title insurance, efficiency and affordability set the best providers apart. While title insurance rates are predetermined in many states, the premier companies offer a range of products and services that help lenders close more loans more quickly with complete assurance that the chain of title is secure. They are driven to be fast, affordable, and reliable by the lenders they serve.They do this job best when they perform their work in a manner that is all but invisible to the lender and the borrower. Because they are so good at working behind the scenes, some might assume that that title company’s work was simple or did not require advanced technology, but that would be a mistake.These companies were among the first in the industry to adopt new technologies that would allow them to research the specifics of the properties they insure quickly. They are also on the cutting edge of the move to eClosing, which the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection has publicly said was the future of the mortgage business.These are examples of technology driving the title business to improve and enhance offerings. But the converse is also true. The needs of the title industry are driving new technology development.So, how is technology driving the title business today (and vice versa), and what are the goals of the companies that work in this space?The Need for SpeedIt will probably come as no surprise that one of the primary requirements for an industry that is required to deliver quickly is speed. That means good title companies invest in good people, adequate training, and the best third-party service providers with the best technology.While the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure rules made it illegal for the seller (or the seller’s agent) to require a real estate buyer to use a particular title company, the truth is that most borrowers are still going with the recommendations of their real estate agent or loan officer. For all of the government’s efforts to drive consumers to shop for real estate services, they just don’t purchase or finance real estate often enough to feel comfortable taking on that role.This means that it’s often a real estate agent that offers up a trusted partner to handle title insurance and closing services for a new home sale. To maintain this vital business referral partner, the title company is driven to complete its work promptly so that the loan can close on time, preserving the deal for the real estate agent that brought them the business. Similarly, in the case of a refinance where title insurance is recommended, the loan officer is the referral partner but the need to close on time is just as strong.In response, technologists have worked to make software more user-friendly as well as capable of performing more of the tasks that were at one time manual processes. The best example of this may be the online title plant. A job that at one time took hours or days and involved human researchers crawling through the vaults at the county recorder’s office now take minutes—or less.Third-party service providers have also done their part to remove friction and speed up the process. In our internal studies, we have found that turnaround time can be cut in half for many information products. Property search reports that can typically take up to three days for a regular order and two weeks for batches can be completed in just over a day for regular orders and 4.3 days for batch orders if the right process is employed. In some instances, this is being achieved with the use of robotic process automation (RPA) bots to complete parts of the search process.Far and away the most significant contributor to speed is effective communication, and this is one area in which tech shines. Automated workflow in modern title production software ensures that the right party is notified at the right time. Likewise, software used by third-party partners makes communication between parties quick and easy. Automated email recognition technology and automated reminders also help.But there are still processes that must be handled by humans. The key is to provide the right technology to everyone working on the deal. The same holds true for third parties assisting the title company. One way to accomplish this is for the partner’s personnel to work directly within the company’s own title production system. At the very least, it requires good interfaces between the partner’s work system and the title company’s own.Keeping the Costs LowMargins in the mortgage space have become compressed, and this includes the title industry. Fannie Mae surveys have been showing signs of thinning margins since at least Q1 2016. It’s a trend the entire industry has been struggling to respond to. It is now vital that every company working here reduce the cost of every product and service they provide.Because the services provided by the title agency are passed back to consumers, the pressure here is not so much to reduce what they charge as it is to bring down their expenses. Again, technology responds well to this problem, if correctly implemented.The most significant impact technology can have on title company expenses is by delivering efficiencies. The less time internal personnel spend on each task, the more efficient the operation. Technologists have responded by building more power into the systems they develop, but this then drives third-party partners to upgrade their technologies to keep pace.Technologies like optical character recognition (OCR)/ intelligent character recognition (ICR) and automated indexing are speeding up processes, and also reducing rework in many cases. Artificial intelligence engines are being incorporated along with these technologies to make the processes even more efficient and error free.Those firms that have invested in the tools or technologies required to continue to interface well with the title production platforms in place at the title agency are in the best position to be good title company partners. Seamless electronic integration between platforms means data can be transferred between suppliers and requester systems without extra work or errors.Engaging Third-party ProvidersIn our experience, the only way to significantly cut costs is to employ expert third-party outsourcing partners who do the work every single day, and who have perfected the process using an optimal mix of process expertise and technology.Even as new technologies are allowing title companies to provide their products and associated services faster and cheaper, these same technologies are driving their third-party partners to innovate. Only by ensuring their technologies interface effectively with the latest tools in place in the title agent’s shop can these potential partners hope to keep pace.This has sent prospective partners on a quest to determine the actual needs of the title companies they hope to serve. The search begins with the title operations and product development departments, where partners learn what capabilities exist in-house and what requirements the title company’s IT department requires to connect the systems. In many cases, this requires new software, often written with the help of one or more APIs, to bring the technologies together.Rarely is the new software developed by a partner a one-size-fits-all solution that will work for other title companies. In most cases, the partner’s development staff must listen carefully to the needs of the title agent and then map the perfect solution to fill the gaps between the systems. It must be efficient, decreasing turnaround times without impacting the title company’s bottom line.One area in which technology is truly driving the title industry is regarding third-party vendor management, not just concerning integrating systems, as described above, but also how title agencies form partnerships in the first place.Vendor management systems help title companies manage title process from start to finish, whether the work is handled internally by technology or through the support of third-party partners. The workflow on these platforms and integrations with third-party vendors allow data to pass back and forth easily and includes tracking and management of orders and even methods to track the timeliness and quality delivered by the partners.If suppliers on the platform provide services like electronic closing, electronic document delivery, and real-time status updates, it makes the process even more efficient, accurate and flexible. These new technologies are a quantum leap forward in vendor management and bring new power to title companies as they work to streamline their operations, reduce their costs, decrease their turn times and improve their bottom lines.

This image released by NBC shows Rosie Perez as Tr

first_img This image released by NBC shows Rosie Perez as Tracey Wolfe in a scene from “Rise,” about a high school theater program in a struggling Pennsylvania town. (Peter Kramer/NBC via AP) ‘Rise’ star Rosie Perez believes in the power of the arts LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Rosie Perez has found a TV series close to her heart with “Rise,” about a high school theatre program that’s more than song and dance.The Oscar-nominated actress (“Fearless”) plays a teacher passionate about using the stage to help youngsters discover themselves and their place in the world on the NBC drama, which airs 9 p.m. EDT Tuesday. That’s long been Perez’s cause and was a key to her own path.In the early 1990s, she co-founded the New York-based Urban Arts Partnership, which works to bring arts education to underprivileged communities. Perez, who chairs the group’s artists board, said she’s seen first-hand how a student can be inspired by writing, acting and other creative endeavours to do better in school and in life and, in some cases, learn they belong in the arts.That’s what happened to the Brooklyn-born Perez, who discussed the partnership, her roots and what “The Wiz,” the 1970s stage musical inspired by “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” means to her in an interview with The Associated Press.AP: Your interests and the themes of “Rise” are so similar. What was your reaction when you were asked by executive producer Jason Katims (“Friday Night Lights”) to join the cast?Perez: The intersection has me gobsmacked. Reading the script, I said, “This is what I’ve been doing for 25 years, and now I’m going to be able to play it on television.” … I believe in the arts. It’s sad that arts are not part of the curriculum across the nation. … United Arts Partnership is arts education, and we use the arts to help kids comprehend academics and to help build a sense of civic-minded duty and their self-esteem. With “Rise,” it’s not about arts education per se, and yet it is. It’s teaching students about life, about stepping outside of yourself, and those are lessons that are valuable and are absent in our school systems.Q: Can you share the story of a student who was changed by exposure to the arts?Perez: Honey, there’s so many stories. There was this young man, he was always absent, always late for school, a very dark, moody individual who was close to getting kicked out of high school. … After he came and sat through a few of our programs, he said, “I’m a writer.” We asked him to write us something, and this kid wrote the most disturbing and beautiful poem. In it, he revealed he was in a homeless shelter and there were times he wasn’t in a shelter, and his mother was gone and he had to fend for himself. … This kid now travels the world doing spoken word. This kid now is trying to write his first novel. This is a kid who should have fallen through the cracks, and because of the arts he did not.Q: How did acting and the arts enter your life?Perez: I was a ward of the state, initially, and then in the foster care system for quite some time, even though I did live part-time with my aunt in Brooklyn. When I was in the system, in the Catholic home, they kept putting me on the stage (even though) I kept saying no. “You’re gonna be the lead bunny in the Easter production.” I said no. “You’re gonna be in it.” There was always something in me that kept resisting it, and they kept telling me how good I was at it. But I really didn’t take it in because of the circumstance of my reality. Then when I was in junior high school I went to see a Broadway play, “The Wiz.” And it changed my life, because they were telling a story that was similar to my story that I thought I was all alone in. And that’s the beauty of the arts.Q: “Rise” is about youngsters and the adults in their lives. How do you get parents or other guardians involved in the effort to help kids succeed?Perez: We have an open-door policy and we invite and encourage the students’ parents to come to our program. … When you meet parents, they’re stressed out and overworked. They have such guilt in not being able to provide what children need, or making a mistake of punishing them too harshly or not punishing them at all, or “I can’t help them with their homework.” That’s why I think it (“Rise”) will resonate with a lot of people, because the parents in it are watching these kids transform from putting on one single play. And I’ve seen it firsthand, not on set. I’m talking about Urban Arts Partnership. I’ve seen it, it’s real.___Lynn Elber can be reached at lelber@ap.org and on Twitter at http://twitter.com/lynnelber.center_img by Lynn Elber, The Associated Press Posted May 7, 2018 6:31 pm PDT Last Updated May 7, 2018 at 9:40 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emaillast_img read more

University of Nicosia to record degrees using cryptography

first_imgThe University of Nicosia (UNIC) will become the first university in the world to record all of its academic degrees in the blockchain – a list of records linked and secured using cryptography that cannot be modified.The announcement was made on Thursday by UNIC’s CEO Antonis Polemitis.Speaking at the Decentralised 2017 conference, organised by UNIC, Polemitis said the university was the first to record academic degrees on the blockchain in 2014.So far, this has been done on a trial basis but as of now the university will be writing all the degrees it issues on the blockchain.In practical terms, companies seeking to hire university graduates will be able to verify candidates’ degrees online.For use as a distributed ledger, a blockchain is typically managed by a peer-to-peer network collectively adhering to a protocol for validating new blocks. Once recorded, the data in any given block cannot be altered retroactively without the alteration of all subsequent blocks, which needs a collusion of the network majority.The decentralised consensus makes blockchains suitable for the recording of events, medical records, and other records management activities.UNIC was also the first university in the world to offer a course on cryptocurrency. The university accepts Bitcoin for tuition payments.Decentralised 2017 is a two-day event (November 2-3) being held at the St. Raphael Resort in Limassol.It is billed as the ‘first major conference in Europe focused on the business and political implications of blockchain technologies, across several key industries, including shipping/supply chain, financial services, government, accounting/auditing and legal and governance, along with analysis of the long-term implications of blockchain, artificial intelligence and decentralized autonomous organizations’.You May LikeLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.

the minority community to “stand on their own feet” and not “seek help” for a living Modi was addressing a gathering primarily comprising Muslim businessmen from Gujarat and the Middle East countries during the inaugural function of a three-day conclave on Business Harmony organised by socio-economic organisation Ummat which helps over 1200 Muslim businessmen network with each other in the state “Dear friends we have to make our own efforts It is not good for any community to extend their arms and seek help for a living” Modi said “We will have to stand on our own feet Our kids have to become job-creators and not job-seekers” Modi said on the opening day of the event that was meant to bring together businessmen belonging to both the majority and minority communities and bridge the “trust” gap between them “Since my childhood I have felt that the poorest of the poor kid born in a Muslim home is talented For instance they make or repair locks…They have the skill but no opportunity We want to give them that opportunity” Modi told the 150-strong gathering mostly comprising participants and stall-attendants at the conclave which is being supported by the Gujarat government The CM also floated an idea “to map the top 10-12 talents” inherent in the youths from the Muslim community “Such talented people from the Muslim community should be brought together They will not only stand on their own feet but also release a fresh lease of productivity to Gujarat” Modi said while suggesting ways and means to bring the Muslim youth into the “mainstream” Modi also cited several examples of Muslims in Gujarat who have succeeded in making a name for themselves Apart from the traditional kite-making and textile printing sectors that employ a large number of Muslim artisans he narrated the efforts of an old gentleman from Dharampur in Valsad district who used to make musical instruments and a young farmer Ismail Sheru from Banaskantha who currently holds the record of producing the highest number of potatoes on a hectare of land “In the course of the past 10 years in Gujarat we have literally lived with the four ‘mantras; — security equality prosperity and equity” he said while stating that efforts should be made to enhance the skills of Muslim women entrepreneurs and provide them with an equal opportunity and be “part of progress” in the state He also spoke of how the image of Gujarat has changed from being a “traders’ state” to being a “manufacturing hub” He also mentioned how Kutch district having the highest Muslim population in the state has 1732 industrial units owned by Muslims who directly contribute to the growth of the state Stating that every section of the society has to be taken along the path of progress Modi said “ BJP needs power We need the power to empower people” he said Some of the participants at the business conclave appreciated the Modi government’s efforts to organise such an event “The Chief Minister spoke about a lot of micro-issues

Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) putting the proposal of cloud seeding on fast trackNewsline spoke to Jivanprakash Kulkarnichief scientist and cloud seeding expert at Punes Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM) The civic body has sent the feasibility report of Israeli firm Mekorot for further study by the IITM What are the pre-requisites to conduct cloud seeding Does Mumbai have the required factors to make the experiment a success One needs to monitor clouds constantly before the experiment is conducted A weather radar is used for the same We also need an aircraft to infuse the heavy particles in the cloud for cloud seeding The most important condition is that the cloud should be seedable The cloud with a large number of very small droplets that are not forming into rain due to the competition with each other for moisture is appropriate for seeding The cloud is then infused with bigger particles resulting into bigger droplets These big droplets then infuse with smaller dropletsresulting in rain This triggers a chain effectwhich then makes the cloud rain The BMC is planning cloud seeding in September and IITM has been consulted on the same What are the chances of the success of the project This is a scientific process and the success or failure depends on many conditions Though this technique rests on sound scientific principlesthere are a range of factors which need to work in favour of the process Its success depends on the number of seedable days in the month For exampleif we have 30 days of September to carry out the experimentthere will be about 15 days of productive seedable days Secondlyin case the clouds are available in these 15 dayswe will have to ensure that the aircraft can capture those clouds during this time This will depend upon the permissions for using the aircraft In case these factors are favourable and occur togetherthe chances of success are good The project works better when there are a large number of convective clouds with many tiny cloud particles in which seeding can be introduced The increase in rainfall varies between 10-25 per cent We have studied the technical proposal for the cloud seeding experiment and based on the datait seems sound There is a good chance of success of the proposal Which states in India have conducted cloud seeding previously Were they successful Cloud seeding has been done in Maharashtra in 2003 and 2004 It was done on a regular basis in Andhra Pradesh for five years since 2003while Karnataka undertook the exercise in 2003 Though one cannot say that the cloud seeding experiment has failed anywherethe desired result might vary in various states If one claims that it did not result in success in Maharashtrawe have to take into account that done over a large area that includes hillsrocky terrainsthe rainfall from cloud seeding gets absorbed in the land In case of Mumbaiif the cloud seeding is done in smaller areasall the rainfall will be absorbed in the reservoir Is cloud seeding the only option in case of deficient rainfall or could there be other contingency measures There are other measures which should also be tried as cloud seeding is not the only measure one can resort to in case of deficient rainfall There are other effective measures such as rainwater harvestingground charging of water Alternativelyagencies that decide to conduct cloud seeding should have a clear understanding of the process and whether their climate and topography are appropriate for such an experiment Is cloud seeding in India any different from other countries In which countries are it highly successfull Cloud seeding experiments in India started in 1951 but technology has only been used sporadicallywhile in ChinaThailand and Israel it is done on a regular basis India is not much different in terms of basic requisites for success of experiment; how effectively one uses conditions available and conducts the experiments will determine their success For

Bologna 2-1 on Sunday to give Gennaro Gattuso his first win as a coach AC Milan’s head coach Gennaro Gattuso (L) celebrates with his players against Bologna AFP Midfielder Bonaventura opened the scoring early on before Simone Verdi’s leveller but grabbed the winner 14 minutes from time It was a much-needed win for Gattuso after his reign began last weekend with Milan becoming the first team to fail to beat Benevento this season as goalkeeper Alberto Brignoli scored in injury-time before a much-changed side were beaten at Croatians Rijeka in the Europa League Milan moved up to seventh in the Serie A table but are still 11 points off the top four "It was important to win and we did it we’re happy" Bonaventura told Milan’s website "I struggled at the start of the year because I was not fit but now I’m slowly starting to reach 100 percent" Bonaventura wasted little time in putting the hosts ahead at the San Siro as he latched onto a loose ball on the edge of the area to slot past a wrong-footed Antonio Mirante in the Bologna goal Ninth-placed Bologna who were level on points with Milan heading into the game equalised midway through the first half as Verdi hammered a left-footed shot into the top corner But Bonaventura who scored his first goal of the season last weekend at Benevento got Gattuso off the mark by meeting Fabio Borini’s 76th-minute cross with a powerful downward

Maurizio Sarri said "I was worried by Wednesday’s performance not this one "It’s the kind of game where if you win 1-0 everyone says Napoli have found themselves again" Roma stayed in touch with the top three but can also be caught by local rivals Lazio whose game with Torino in Rome on Monday is one of their two games in hand on the top three Chievo keeper Sorrentino blocked everything Roma threw at him denying Patrik Schick and Gerson with a superb 24th-minute double save and making a string of other stops But the 38-year-old’s best moment came with seven minutes remaining when Schick making his full Roma debut bore down on goal looking for the winner The Czech ripped a shot that was sharply deflected and Sorrentino already diving one way stuck out a leg to save what looked a certain goal and a point for his team "It was one-way traffic" bemoaned Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco "We had opportunities in both the first and second half We deserved a goal but we didn’t score
