Nadella, long known as a champion for the democratization of artificial intelligence (AI), said it would be a key component to Dynamics: "I want to be able to democratize AI so that any customer using these products is able to, in fact, take their own data and load it into AI for themselves." Microsoft's "third cloud" is Nadella's term for Dynamics which caters to the fields such as sales and finance. With Office 365 (work productivity and flow, email, etc.) and Azure (computing and databases) as the first two clouds, Nadella all Microsoft products utilizing a common set of business data that can be mined for new insights with artificial intelligence "I think that's the only way to long-term change this game, because if all we did was replace somebody else's (sales), or (finance) application, that's of no value, quite frankly," he told Reuters.

Whether this new approach gives them the ability to begin to achieve their potential. Participants will be screened to ensure that they are between 18 and 64 years old and living on a low income. This is a new world with new challenges, Wynne said. From technology to [President Donald] Trump, it is a time of greater uncertainty and change. Universal basic income, a form of social security that provides unconditional financial support from the government to all residents of a country or region, has recently gained traction as a solution to poverty, homelessness, and low quality of life. Similar pilot programs are on the way around the world, from Finland to Kenya. According to the Globe and Mail , a separate basic income plan for First Nations communities will be introduced later this year.

A type of worm could help solve the growing problem of plastic pollution. The common wax worm, or Galleria mellonella, researchers say, can eat plastic and could help reduce the waste caused by the one trillion polyethylene plastic bags used around the world annually. "We have found that the larva of a common insect, Galleria mellonella, is able to biodegrade one of the toughest, most resilient, and most used plastics: polyethylene," says Federica Bertocchini of the Institute of Biomedicine and Biotechnology of Cantabria in Spain. The discovery about the caterpillar’s hunger for plastic was accidental, said Bertocchini, adding that the plastic bags containing the wax worms “became riddled with holes.” She said the worms can “do damage to a plastic bag in less than an hour.” And after 12 hours, researchers saw “an obvious reduction in plastic mass.

The collision scrambled my mind and sparked a fight-or-flight response. I locked my sights on my cousins boat, cranked the steering wheel and slammed my foot on the accelerator. To my surprise, I never arrived at my target, but instead zoomed on a path of concentric circles. The small engine was surprisingly mighty. As my circles tightened, I felt the collective stare of the other kids intensify as they took notice of my unusual tactic. A panic flooded my mind and washed away common-sense solutions such as releasing the accelerator or straightening the steering wheel. I thought I would die of embarrassment. So goes the life of an awkward person. As I recalled this and other long-forgotten stories and combed through hundreds of social science findings for my new book, I discovered the hallmarks of an awkward disposition: Awkward people like myself have an unusual perspective.

"Saturday Night Live" star Vanessa Bayer's joke at the expense of Hillary Clinton may have bombed in front of a liberal audience over the weekend, but it certainly played well with much of the rest of the country. At Variety s "Power of Women" luncheon in New York City on Friday that honored, among others, Chelsea Clinton, Bayer had a brutal dig against her mother for failing to win the presidency against Donald Trump. "OK, we have some pretty amazing honorees this afternoon: Jessica Chastain, Gayle King, Blake Lively, Audra McDonald, Tina Knowles, Shari Redstone, and Chelsea Clinton. And they all have one thing in common: None of their moms are president," Bayer said. As the honorees tilted toward the left of the political spectrum, the joke did not go over well with the audience. Groans could be heard. Hillary Clinton's daughter fired back at the end of her remarks on childhood obesity and protecting children, Yahoo reports : "I'm particularly proud and grateful for the example that my mother has always set," Clinton said, adding, "It's always better to get caught trying than to never have tried at all.

"The mining-based industry has become priority for the government and the global market, but it does not support the common people. They are often led to believe that mining is for their own benefit, but then they are displaced by destructive development." India's tribes make up almost 10 percent of its 1.3 billion population. Yet most live on the margins of societyinhabiting remote villages and eking out a living from farming, cattle rearing and collecting and selling forest produce. Many live in mineral-rich regions such as Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand, and risk being chased off their ancestral land due to a rising number of mining projects. While their land is protected under a decade-old law known as the Forest Rights Act, few know their rightsleaving them open to exploitation. Fast-track Since Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government swept to power almost three years ago, it has taken a pro-business approach by fast-tracking environmental clearances for mining firms in a bid to boost investment, jobs and growth.

Imposter Syndrome Comes In Multiple Flavors That feeling comes about in different ways, though. Heres a quick sampling: Being absolutely 100% sure youre going to fail. Even Sheryl Sandberg, the unflappable COO of Facebook, has said she often feels this way. As she described it in Lean In, Every time I was called on in class, I was sure that I was about to embarrass myself. Every time I took a test, I was sure that it had gone badly. And every time I didnt embarrass myselfor even excelledI believed that I had fooled everyone yet again. One day soon, the jig would be up. Feeling like a complete fraud.

Our study shows that Foxo3 could play an important role in determining which individuals might be more susceptible to noise-induced hearing loss, White adds. Hearing loss from noise may be in the genes Approximately one-third of people who reach retirement age have some degree of hearing loss, primarily due to noise exposure over their lifetimes. The problem is even more acute in the military, with upwards of 60 percent of individuals who have been deployed in forward areas experiencing hearing loss, making it the most common disability for combat veterans. Foxo3 is known to play an important role in cell's stress response. For example, in the cardiovascular system, Foxo3 helps heart cells stay healthy by clearing away debris when the cells are damaged. Additionally, people with a genetic mutation that confers higher levels of Foxo3 protein have been shown to live longer.

Yeah, Bluetooth audio is pretty common these days, so why should you care about these earbuds? Look how happy that woman up above looks. She's got FRESHeBUDS in. Boom. There's your reason. She's also at the beach and it appears to be a very nice day. But for the sake of promotion, wireless earbuds are fast becoming the new normal, what with Apple getting rid of the headphone jack and all that. Obviously, that isn't like the death knell of wires, but for casual or more physically active listeners, wireless earbuds make a lot of sense. The budget-friendly FRESHeBUDS are designed to be sweat- and water-resistant so you can wear them comfortably on a run. In addition to the wireless convenience and balanced sound quality, FRESHeBUDS are also magnetized. This clever touch keeps them from getting tangled, and simplifies the cumbersome connection process by pairing with your phone as soon as they’re pulled apart.
