I haven’t posted much about photography lately. This lens will change close up photography for the better..
Yeah, uh huh? Read the article. Apparently all this quantum theory measurements had loopholes that could disprove it all…until now.
Sweet, true science..
Does your organization use Agile project management? Are you deploying new capabilities on very short intervals to your infrastructure? Does your organization use middle-ware ‘service’ layer to help standardize your software product line? Is your organization such that this middleware is provided by a separate team?
It may behoove you to ensure there is compliance with time-tested documentation and proper change control. Any middleware subsystems created as components used on new technologies but are not well documented, packaged, or maintained may suffer in the future and negate the benefit of being componentized. This is “technical debt” that eventually will fall upon your organization. All systems that use this middleware will be tied to a system that eventually will be unable to be updated unless the talent that created them are keep employed. This technical debt can bring down a company with a ‘market leading product’ quickly when the competition brings a new product to market. New products can industrialize your organization’s product. Your organization is quickly put into the position of having a legacy product, and management will need to invest heavily to bring your product up to the level and quickly to the new generation of product.
I follow gardeviance’s blog pretty regularly because he is the only source I have found insightful in IT leadership and how prepared organizations are for future success. This blog is gold for any CIO.
It is worth the investment in time to read. You may want to reserve time to read related content, but once you do he brings a unique perspective on new technologies coming to market, such as Amazon’s dash button.
I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Brilliant! Help me understand why this is a bad idea?
And here I thought the grooves were up and down.. Huh
Ok that’s just cool..
Major new discovery about the human body may provide significant new clues about immune diseases.
Interesting read about accidents Google’s autonomous cars are having are due to other driver’s errors. Worth the read especially if you ride motorcycles for things to watch.
I don’t know if this is publicly announced yet, but coming soon to a St. Louis Brad company near you is the jalapeños bagel. Why is this so kick arse? Have you ever tried their breakfast egg, white cheddar, and ham on a jalapeños bagel? You haven’t lived, sir or madam..
Trust me, ask if they have it, and ask them to make you this one if a kind taste.
Reply back, and tell me if it isn’t the best thing since the bread tie was invented.
In all it’s glory:
A cool 90 second video on research currently underway for reversing cause for heart disease. It’s worth a moment of your time 😉
Ok, it doesn’t matter, but I thought of this possibility myself years ago, but my lack of knowledge on the subject prevented me from sharing.
Everyone knows scientist say the universe is expanding at an remunerated rate, right? ..And dark matter with done interesting properties you can’t measure is used to help explain this?
What if the observations could be explained without the use of a Easter bunny? Well, team had figured out the observations could be explained by removing the constraint that time is constant.
Summary details they DON’T tell you upfront:
- 2.7 mile walk – and that is only if you also know
- The eggs are all at the FAR south end of the loop
- Unless you are looking for the “golden eggs” with $50 / $100 in them (i heard of only one found on a trash can) walk the path only. don’t bother with the woods or anything else
- When you arrive, enter at the NORTH WEST end of the park. GPS will take you to dead ends and it will take you another 20 minutes to figure out how to get there
- Eggs have numbers on them. you get to pick up ten only
- when you return, you have to fight through lines to see if the numbers are winners
- winning numbers you get to pick off a table of cleaning products, ketchup, coolie cups, envelops (mine were 15% off massage at xxx)
- Apparently you can win grills, alcohol etc. but we saw nothing of the sort
- The only thing “adult” about it is they have liquor for sale, and you have to walk 3 miles in the dark, 5+ if you don’t know the above things also..
The path is the blue and red lines combined :
For many years, Jefferson Barracks have put on an adult egg hunt. I have heard of it, but never knew anyone who went. I decided to give it try this year, and although there are folks who swear it is a great time, I felt it seriously lacking. It almost seems deliberate they don’t post some of the specifics on how it works. Basically, you go to the starting area, trade your $8 tickets for new tickets, you are left to a 2.7 miles (Felt like 6 in the dark after going in circles)
After an hour of looking hopelessly, I decided I needed group/hive help. Out of approximately 100 people I asked, no one knew how to find the eggs. An hour into it, i finally found someone with eggs and they explained the items listed above.
We arrived late – the address on the website on my GPS took me to a closed road. After finding the place, the big group had left. we received red tickets and was sent off to hunt. We wandered for an hour around looking for eggs, and we and dozens of others never found any eggs. We finally found someone who had eggs, and found out you had to walk about 3-5 miles to It took us another hour to find the eggs, grab a few with numbers, to return to a huge crowd trying to get to a table of winning numbers. never found any golden eggs (with $50/100 in them apparently?) we pushed our ways in to check the eggs, we had a couple. you got to choose your winnings from a table of soaps, ketchup, 15% off coupons for massage, and a bunch of dfdsd from a dollar store. (part 1 of 2)
I am nearly disabled and the walk nearly killed me physically. there was a tent selling alcohol, that was the only thing ADULT about it.
Bottom line: this was a complete waste of an evening. Had there been something upfront on their website about having to walk the entire loop I would have known not to go. The group that puts this on needs to explicitly state on their webpage this is a 3+ mile walk and be clear about the park entrance and NOT to use Google maps / GPS.
some views of the park, which i would recommend going during the day. It was a nice walk, i just wasn’t physically ready as I am recovering from injury.
I talked about this movie in a pervious posting that explained new physics / rendering that was discovered and worth reviewing. I found a behind-the-scenes look at the machines (robots?) that were part of the movie. They were unique in a lot of ways and had an interesting back-story. Check it out
Some days I feel like I must have slept through class. Did you know almost ten years ago, scientists discovered we have a second moon?
Interesting summary of New space satellites in the works..
Most of the major news agencies use Google earth whenever there is a conflict or a disaster. Next time you watch the news, look for the zoom from a wide shot down to a city, town, or street. If you notice in the corner, you will typically see “Google earth” watermark on the images. Now you too can do your own amazing videos to show your vacation spots!

Android is outpacing Apple mobile phones..
Ok It’s official – stand up – right now, and stretch for a few minutes. There, I just saved your life!
“The amount of time a person sits during the day is associated with a higher risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and death, regardless of regular exercise, according to a review study published today in the Annals of Internal Medicine.”
All kidding aside, it’ surprised me you need to keep moving to minimize health risks. I suppose the good news is my Program Team meetings are keeping my teams healthy!
