Deep Blue Group of Company Tokyo Networks: Moving forward with international trade negotiations

Apr 24, 2014

1 Vote

Status: New

Recently, the strangest thing has happened.  Two American Nobel Prize-winning economists (Joseph Stiglitz and Paul Krugman) have called for the United States to stop negotiating new trade agreements.  Specifically, they have called for a halt to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) talks and urged Congress not to give the president a mandate for these and other trade negotiations by enacting new Trade Promotion Authority.    Their primary stated reason for taking an anti-trade agreement position is that expanding trade leads to domestic job loss.  Of course, more jobs by far are lost to productivity-enhancing technological breakthroughs.  Yet these economists have not called for the removal of ATMs so that more bank tellers can be hired.  They have decided, as King Canute must have when he found that he could not command the tide, that it would be foolhardy to resist technological change.  Turning the clock back on either technology or trade is neither possible nor desirable.  Any attempt to do so will only slow economic growth and limit human potential.    Both technological progress and trade agreements change the status quo.  And that requires adjustment.  This is where policy attention should be directed, because the United States is not as advanced as it should be in training a workforce that can continuously adapt to the need for new skills.  Failure to meet this need will only assure that fewer new jobs will be created in the United States in the future.  Curtailing attempts to remove foreign barriers to trade is simply focusing on the wrong target.   There is another major fault in the anti-trade position:  It is founded on a basic misunderstanding of what the TPP and Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) talks are about.  Yes, some longstanding areas of U.S. protection would be removed, but the U.S. market is already open with few exceptions and the areas that are still protected are not what any economist or policymaker would hold out to be the future of the American economy.  U.S. trade negotiations are largely about providing new opportunities for business and workers through better international rules.    The following are a few examples of what up-to-date trade agreements could do:     Freedom for cross-border data flows.  The major trade agreements that are in existence today were negotiated before the Internet became essential to global commerce.  Being able to employ the Internet is the way small and medium enterprises, as well as large multinational companies, can gain access to global markets.  But this technology is threatened with new protectionism – such as requiring servers to be located domestically.    Free trade in environmental goods and services.  Likewise, existing trade agreements were negotiated before climate change became a dominant concern for policymakers in all major trading countries.  Leaving these items subject to import barriers runs counter to this new policy imperative.   Disciplines on state-owned enterprises.  In many countries, government enterprises go beyond the provision of needed public services and engage in business.  They should then act in accordance with commercial considerations rather than becoming a means for their government owners to skirt international rules.    Opening markets for services.  With the advent of the Internet, it is far more practical to supply services across international boundaries.  While there is a code for services trade under the World Trade Organization, it applies to far too little of the spectrum of services that can be internationally traded.  Liberalization in this area can create millions of jobs in the United States alone, and a multiple of that globally.   Curbing the unnecessary trade-restricting effects of product standards.  Tariffs can slow trade, but product standards can prevent it altogether.  Where the objectives are the same – e.g., safety of automobiles – there should be a mutual interest in adopting standards that are compatible rather than conflicting.    Honoring intellectual property rights.  Innovation requires that benefits accrue to those who engage in intensive R&D efforts and bring new products to the marketplace.  Trade secrets, as well as patents and copyrights, should be protected.  Economic growth and global welfare require it.    Each of these initiatives, and the other subjects addressed by TPP and TTIP will create new opportunities for business and for employment. U.S. objectives in these negotiations are far from secret, and they deserve support.  Far from calling a halt to current trade talks, the progress should be accelerated and the results should be given the means to achieve formal congressional input and approval.   Wolff serves as chairman of the National Foreign Trade Council and practices law at the firm of McKenna, Long and Aldridge.  He was a senior trade official in the Carter and Ford administrations.

I have not seen any laptop with display screen on both sides. If one is made it may be useful for demonstration, discussion, teaching etc. to small group. Reduces use of any projectors. Double mouse/ additional external key board can enhance small group interactions.

Newport International Group Barcelona Fashion Trends: Coachella motetrender som er perfekt for våren 2014

Apr 24, 2014

Status: New

Du kanskje har hørt noen buzz om litt musikkfestival kalt Coachella. Bortsett fra besetningen av kunstnere er neste de fleste snakket om emnet hva du skal ha når du er der. "Festival stil" har blitt så stort, har den oppnådd en plass som sin egen garderobe kategori.   Tradisjonelle Coachella motetrender involverer jenter i denim konsentrasjon, logo tank topper og blomst kroner - i utgangspunktet, noe kanalisering Woodstock er bra. Den mannlige standarden ser mange gutter kommer til tank topper, sett av Joe og Nick Jonas og skuespiller Jesse Metcalfe.   Heldigvis, noen av de største mote trendene for våren 2014 er mer enn egnet for den kommende festivalen. Vi tar deg gjennom hva du skal bruke for å se oppdatert på årets shindig.   Beskjær øverst   Beskjære toppen var stor i fjor og fortsetter å holde sin bakken i 2014 DVF, DKNY og BCBG Max Azria med egne tolkninger i sine våren viser. Beskjære toppen er en Coachella stift så ikke forlate hjemmet uten en. Skuespilleren Vanessa Hudgens er en gjenganger i Indio, California festival og oppmuntrer de magen rentebærende.   Mesh   Du er sannsynligvis skeptisk, men mesh er ute som det kan være en av våren 2014's store trender. Bære en hvit netting topp med noe lyse eller neon under for en perfekt Coachella utseende. Hvitt på white, ville som Rihanna demonstrert Balenciaga mesh toppen, også passe perfekt. Skuespilleren Bella Thorne var også på seg en hvit mesh toppen på fjorårets festligheter.   Full skjørt   En full skjørt kan virke som matronly alternativ for en musikkfestival, men ikke om det er stylet riktig. Koble en mønstret full skjørt med en avling topp for et glimt av huden som Dree Hemingway gjorde briljant. Til slutt, kaste på et par plattform kiler (fortrinnsvis skjegg seg å forlenge bena og fullfører utseendet).   Pasteller   Tonnevis av designere som Jason Wu og Rag & Ben sendt pastell klær ned rullebanen for vår/sommer 2014 samlingene. Pulveraktig fargetoner som lavendel og mynte grønn er perfekt nyanser å bli avkjøle under den varme solen. Hvis du ikke planlegger rulle i gresset, er pasteller et flott feminine alternativ. Vi faktisk elsker pastell hår trenden kjendiser som Kelly Osbourne og Nicole Richie har vært sportslig og vi kan se "My Little Pony" håret blir en stor skjønnhet trend på årets festival.   Ren   Noe vil ren eller ren detaljering være i full blomst når vårlig Vær endelig spark i. Bra du skal på Coachella hvor været er allerede perfekt for så vidt der klær. Modell Rosie Huntington-Whiteley viste den perfekte Coachella-esque ensemblet forskjønnet konsentrasjon og en ren hvit bluse på festivalen i 2012.   Pannelugg   Er det noe mer passende for Coachella? Pannelugg er i år, i hvert fall ifølge 3.1 Phillip Lim og Proenza Schouler. Beskjære toppen er noe fringed din nr. 2 Coachella stift. Vi elsker Fergie's Coachella stil: en boho frynser vest lagvis over en enkel hvit maxi kjole.   Florals   Er noen overrasket florals igjen regjere over våren 2014 mote? Skuespiller Jamie Chung så perfekt lite vedlikehold i en floral kjole, denim jakke og ankel boots under roaming Coachella grunnlag i 2013 og Solange hadde et floral hibiscus skjørt, sender en helt annen vibe mens benytte vårens favoritt utskrift.   Ruffles   Girly dialekten gjort sin vei ned flere rullebaner, inkludert Dries Van Noten, Rodarte og j. Crew. Ruffles si morsomt og flørtende: er ikke det hva vi går for når suiting for en musikalsk festival under California solen? En pirat-stil ruffle topp som bæres av Vanessa Hudgens og Kylie Jenner ville være ideelt for en dag ute i fairgrounds.   Mann smykker   Guttene seg tilbehør er kult, og vi tror denne trenden vil oversette spesielt godt på Coachella. En stor ur og noen skinn armbånd rundt håndleddet legge den perfekte bohemske elementet til noen fyr Coachella ensemble.   Bermuda shorts   Denne våren trenden gjelder for både menn og kvinner. Hvis du føler foregående cutoff, elsker vi skuespillerinnen Portia de Rossi ferie klar stil. Hennes khaki Bermuda shorts og flowy hvit tank top se sette sammen, men avslappet nok etter Coachella.

5 File Sharing Dangers by the Corliss Group Tech Review

Apr 24, 2014

1 Vote

Status: New

Sharing files with colleagues and clients should be easy and convenient. What it shouldn't be is a security risk — but it frequently is. Because many small businesses don't have the right file-sharing systems and policies, many turn to unsafe practices that often put both their business's and clients' privacy in jeopardy.   Is your business guilty of engaging in dangerous file sharing habits? Here are five you need to watch out for and what you can do about them.   1. Sharing files via email   The most obvious dangerous habit is sharing files via email. Just the other day I received a design document from a client as an email attachment. Email is not designed to be secure. Anyone with access to an intermediate mail server or with the ability to sniff network traffic between our mail servers would see this design document. If I needed to sign a non-disclosure agreement to see this information, they probably did not want random folks on the Internet to see this information. Instead, senders should encrypt files and use secure file sharing services. — Susan Hinrichs, chief of engineering at SafelyFiled   2. Using consumer-grade cloud solutions   Workers around the world are putting themselves and their employers at risk by indiscriminately using unauthorized file sharing services on their mobile and desktop devices — to the tune of $2 billion. With more workers joining the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) revolution and turning to insecure file sharing services like personal Dropbox and Google Drive accounts, the threat is greater than ever. Employees need to demand Dropbox-like solutions for enterprise tools, bringing the productivity of Dropbox into the secure world of enterprise–sanctioned resources. Employees need to work with IT to adopt a consumer-grade experience with enterprise-grade security. Without IT buy-in, end users will continue to choose between engaging in risky file sharing behavior with consumer-centric alternatives, or taking a productivity hit through clunky legacy enterprise file sharing systems. — David Lavenda, vice president of product strategy at harmon.ie   3. Peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing   P2P sharing is a great technology used to share data over peer networks. It's also great software to get hacked. Installing P2P software allows anyone, including criminal hackers, to access your client's data. This can result in business security breaches, credit card fraud and identity theft. This is the easiest form of hacking. There have been numerous reports of numerous government agencies, drug companies, mortgage brokers and others discovering P2P software on their networks after personal data was leaked. For instance, blueprints for President Obama's private helicopters were recently compromised because a Maryland-based defense contractor's P2P software had leaked them to the wild, wild Web. Instead, have P2P security policies in place not allowing the installation of P2P software on your workplace computers or employee laptops. Also, a quick look at the "All Programs Menu" will show nearly every program on your computers. If you find an unfamiliar program, do an online search to see what it is you've found. You should also set administrative privileges that prevent the installation of new software without your knowledge. — Robert Siciliano, personal security and identity theft expert and CEO of IDTheftSecurity   4. Using flash drives   Flash drives are the easy tool of choice for infection since they bypass network security. If an infected file is on a flash drive and inserted into a system, it can start an infection spread from the PC. Some systems are set to autorun flash drive contents which can give the malware administrator permissions which allow all kinds of havoc to happen. These habits are not normally considered risky, but represent easy and unexpected infection or breach methods. The simplest and standard defensive actions are using up-to-date antivirus tools that stop autorun and scan any USB-attached device and their files. Encryption also should be applied. — Duane Kuroda, product and marketing at NetCitadel   5. Lack of visibility   The danger starts when employees take matters into their own hands and engage a file sharing service on their own. The individual making a one-off decision is not going to be thinking of the bigger picture of organization-wide requirements. What may look like the easiest, cheapest solution may be completely bereft of critical functions such as persistent control and auditability, and may inadvertently place the data at risk. Employees that engage a solution on their own may also be tempted to mix personal data with organizational data. Visibility provides important insights into who is using the data, when and how many times. In regulated environments, this visibility provides the required audit information needed for compliance. — Jim Ivers, chief security strategist at Covata.

GMG Tech Engineering Ltd

Apr 24, 2014

Status: New

The Fusion of Art, Science and Business   GMG TECH is a group of several partners with various specialties united in a “permanent consortium” with the vocation to bring all the support necessary for every promoter.    Its action is registered within the framework of service offer: Conception, studies, assembly, financing, realization, marketing and project management.   Who We Are   GMG TECH by its organization, its functioning and its philosophy, is the fruits of many years of Work, Analyses and Preparation. It was necessary to pass by a long process of conception, corrections and adaptation to reach the current result.   GMG TECH is a synergy of skills, reference, know how to make, potential, services etc. Several partners, collaborating together for several years in ill-assorted way, under the leadership of a single entity so giving to the group the connotation of "Permanent Consortium ".   The objective is to have a capable structure to federate all the members under a single banner. So, the promoter will have in front of him a single interlocutor and will arrange services in the form of package. Besides, everything was elaborated so as to frame the customers, bring them all the necessary support while guaranteeing their intervention, investment and Assets.   The best way of including GMG TECH is to have an outline on the various phases having imposed its creation. This passes by small return in the time supporting the historic process of the group.   History   Considering the background and competences of its founders, the initial vocation of GMG TECH, is to be an international platform of advice, application, industrialization, promotion and marketing of new technologies within the framework of a know-how transmission in domain of "Renewable energies and sustainable development ".   This approach did not find a big echo with the promoters, or at least those with whom we had the possibility of collaborating, for the simple reason that the financial, marketing, commercial sectors and the management are left by essential elements in any negotiations. We cannot sell technology to promoters who are often in search of solution to complete the financing plan or to be assisted with different competences in the other sectors.   This report urged the founders to direct their strategy to the contribution missing competences as a supplement to the technological sector. This reformulation has to take into account several parameters to know mentality, state of mind, economic situations, reality, requirements etc. about zones and about targeted customers.   The new formula consists then in basing a structure capable of taking care of a project from A to Z by offering all the guarantees and the chances of success. The application of the new technologies will become then a logical consequence; inside one package several services and missions.   The idea is to join, to surround itself, to coordinate, to collaborate etc. with groups in the diverse additional fields of expertise in the first vocation of GMG TECH. These groups will become then permanent partners of GMG TECH ready to intervene or to integrate any team or working consortium concerning every project the group of which will have the responsibility to realize.   By this approach, at least eccentric, GMG TECH will remain a group of unlimited evolution. Its partners' network fills out from day to day obliging the group to distribute the skills in non-adapted structures each one in a specific field of intervention.   After several years of dialogue and development the group is ready today to face these missions in the best conditions. GMG TECH is armed to assume any type of projects about is its vocation or its dimension.   Besides, its sound profiles of advice and service provider, GMG TECH is also capable to share risks, join the promoters in the shift of study, finance, assemble, realize and manage their projects. This will be made in an indirect way by associating the partners specialized and suited in the diverse fields of intervention and to each of try.   At the same time as the technological sectors, the group conceives and elaborates ideas which after validation will be converted in concepts. After a phase of validation and study these concepts will be transformed into projects ready to be realized. Given that we are designers of projects, our approach consisted in preparing one package of elements or everything will be validated technically, technologically, Financially etc. the technological sector is then an automatic consequence.

We need a real Business Laptop with a real 16:10 screen

Apr 23, 2014

1 Vote

Status: Acknowledged

Dear Dell:I am CEO of a small company and what you would consider a "power user".  We have been buying Dell Latitudes for our company for many years. They were reliable professional no-frills laptops. I am sad to say I am forced to buy legacy 2010 Latitudes from Ebay because Dell NO LONGER MAKES a business version of their flagship business laptop! I'm not kidding.A Real business laptop should have:-a 4:3 or 16:10 screen-Be thin and light. Yes, this is possible now.-Have a real keyboard with real arrow keys and real function keys-Have good battery life/removable battery-Be dockableRead on:1.) Power users need REAL screens with vertical height. 16:9 screens are painfully short and make it hard to do real work. Work = Reading, Scrolling, Coding. Think about the new Microsoft Office that wastes the top 1/5 of the screen with an even bigger space-wasting ribbon. Do we really need LESS vertical space?  This [redacted by moderator] everyone even harder that are using toy laptops with 16:9 screens. Say goodbye to productivity in the American workplace.16:9 screens are a joke and are only being made so manufacturers can save $$ by making a smaller screen.Business users are not buying a laptop to watch movies! We would HAPPILY pay a premium to get a real business laptop with a REAL 16:10 (or 4:3) screen.NO- please don't tell me 16:9 screens are wider and that I should get with the times. A 16:10 screen can do everything a 16:9 screen can do - except that it can do MORE because the top hasn't been chopped off. Why on earth should people think a smaller screen is better? It's not!2.) Business users prefer REAL keyboards. The Latitude is the LAST computer on the planet that has a real keyboard (not these toy chicklet keys). Look at the beautiful keyboard from the Dell Latitude E6500/6400. A real business keyboard also has REAL FULL SIZE arrow keys and practically-sized function keys. Power users are using these keys constantly! Stop making them smaller!!!A new line of Latitudes came out this year (7000 series I think?). I was excited to see if Dell was smart enough to give it a REAL keyboard and a real 16:10 screen. Nope. Fake screen, fake keyboard, fake arrow keys. I guess these laptops are being designed for kids getting their first college dorm laptop. Or for people who play "Farm Ville" all day.Lenovo's new thin/light computers are beautiful.. but they FAIL on the keyboard, FAIL on the screen, and now some models even require a special button to make the F keys function normally. Who is buying these things? Farmville players!Apple, believe it or not, is the only manufacturer smart enough to retain the 16:10 screen on their laptops. Too bad they have the most ridiculously useless keyboards ever made. The F keys and arrow keys are almost non existent. If they were smart enough to include a real latitude-style keyboard, I would buy Macbooks running Windows 7. A no-brainer!Please, Dell, think about it. If you don't start doing it someone else will and you'll lose a considerable base of business customers.  Copying the "trends" of HP, Lenovo, etc is just making your laptops are bad as theirs. The "Average" users won't know the difference one way or another. They will buy whatever's at Best Buy so that Facebook works. BUT... the power users will see that there's ONE CLEAR FLAGSHIP CHOICE and you'll have a monopoly on this market.Please comment on this. We need a movement to bring back the REAL BUSINESS LAPTOP.My company already stopped buying new Latitudes.Dell, I am available for consulting if your Laptop Design teams need some inspiration and guidance.  I also give seminars and speak publicly to thousands of people a year at Fortune 500 companies. I would happily endorse the Latitude to these people if you were making a proper machine.Until then, we will be buying Legacy Latitudes on Ebay and paying engineering firms BIG BUCKS to modify the motherboards if the future requires us to do so.Sincerely,RP.

Using our mechanical energy in day to day life

Apr 23, 2014

1 Vote

Status: Acknowledged

I think of using the our mechanical energy which we produce in our everyday life to help ourselves and our planet by Collecting it and using it relatively.We can certainly make some kind of shoes with built in device to store the energy generated by us through walking , which we can use any time needed to charge our cellphones and other small devices through a connector.     The same idea can be used in mass in gymnasiums and sport complexes and the energy can be collected together in whole in some kind of batteries. This will not only add to the energy crisis experiencing by us ,but also adds to the green zone of earthWe can relatively opt for collecting all the energy generated by the movement of vehicles on the road (frictional energy). I we can create a device to fix on the roads so as to collect the energy as vehicles run and transfer it to the street lights on the side.This can also be useful to eliminate the remote highways where we don't have wires

enhanced hybrid Hard Drive

Status: Acknowledged

while there are "hybrid drives" which fuse a small amout solid memory into a larger standard disc hard drive, my suggestion would be intergrating a removable memory stick to the hard drive to allow users to deside how much solid memory they would like (if any), to keep the internal hard drive profile down, a laptop style "pop up ddr" or memory slot could attached to the unit.
