Windows 8.1 Enterprise Preview Reflects the Growing Trend of Working Remotely

  • Posted on June 3, 2017 at 5:41 pm

Microsoft unleashed Windows 8.1 Enterprise Preview today. The early look at the enterprise version of Windows 8.1 follows the release of Windows 8.1 Preview at Microsoft’s BUILD conference last month, and includes a variety of tools that show Microsoft’s commitment to both BYOD and virtualization.

Aside from the slew of changes and enhancements in the regular Windows 8.1 Preview edition, Windows 8.1 Enterprise Preview also includes features uniquely designed for business customers. Windows 8.1 Enterprise Preview adds business-friendly elements like Direct Acess, and BranchCache. It also provides IT admins with the power to configure and lock down the Start screen on Windows 8 clients.

Microsoft also has tools in Windows 8.1 Enterprise Preview to help out with BYOD and virtualization: Windows To Go, and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). Windows To Go lets the company put an entire managed Windows 8 desktop environment on a bootable USB thumb drive, and VDI gives the business the tools to enable users to use critical business software from virtually any Internet-connected device.

One of the hottest trends in business technology today is mobility and working remotely. The driving forces behind working remotely are the “bring your own device” (BYOD) trend and virtualization.

More and more companies are embracing BYOD and allowing (or requiring) employees to provide their own PCs and mobile devices. BYOD can be a cost-cutting measure for the company, because the employee is taking on some (or all) of the burden of purchasing the PC. BYOD enables users to be more productive and have higher job satisfaction because they get to use the hardware they prefer, and are more comfortable with.

BYOD also introduces some unique concerns, though, when it comes to enforcing policies and protecting company data. Regardless of its benefits, companies can’t just let employees connect rogue computers to the network, or store sensitive company data on a personal PC without any protection. The nice thing about Windows To Go is that it turns any Windows 7 or Windows 8 device into a managed Windows 8 PC without installing any additional software, or putting the personal applications or data of the employee at risk.

Another factor in working remotely is virtualization. Whether hosted locally or in the cloud,virtual servers allow the company to maximize the value from its investment in hardware, and adapt quickly to changing demand or business needs. From an endpoint perspective, virtual applications, or virtual desktop are more valuable. A virtual desktop infrastructure like in Windows 8.1 Enterprise simplifies deployment and management of software because the company only has to install and maintain it in one place. At the same time, it helps the users get more done even on older or weaker hardware because much of the processing overhead is handled on the server end.

Small and medium businesses have a lot to gain from both BYOD and virtualization. The features and capabilities of Windows 8.1 Enterprise Preview demonstrate Microsoft’s commitment to keeping SMB customers on the cutting edge.

Lost in Final, Lisicki Keep Smiling

  • Posted on June 3, 2017 at 5:39 pm

London – Sabine Lisicki was unable to stem the tears from his eyes after he lost in the Wimbledon Grand Slam final. But tears do not eliminate Lisicki smile of her beautiful face.

Lisicki had to settle for runner-up after defeated Marion Bartoli in the top of the party on Saturday (06/07/2013). The German was defeated in straight sets by a score of 1-6, 4-6.

When dealing with Bartoli, Lisicki is further supported spectators did not look my best when conquering Serena Williams in the last 16 or Agnieszka Radwanska in the semifinals. He made a lot of unforced errors. The number of unforced errors to 25, while only 14 Bartoli.

“I feel good this morning, but this is an opportunity that you do not get every day,” said Lisicki in the tournament’s official website.

“This is really new for me. Everything is different. I was drained after two weeks, so many tough games, if you’ve got a tough draw like me.”

“Marion did not have to get rid of any big players. Against top players is different. They are heavier, longer. Rallies you have a power drain.”

Lisicki statement is true. He should meet the top players in the previous round as Francesca Shiavone (French Open champion 2010), Samantha Stosur (U.S. Open champion 2011), Serena (the world number one, collecting 16 Grand Slam titles), and Radwanska (number four the world). Meanwhile, Bartoli to qualify for the final once did not clash with the world top ten rankings.

“Physically and mentally I was not 100 percent. I get rid of three Grand Slam champion and should play to score 9-7 in the third set against Radwanska two days ago. Fresher Marion. Bit sad because I could not show my best game,” said Lisicki.

Although sad and disappointed, Lisicki could still show a smile after the game. He smiled as Bartoli held her in front of the net. When facing the photographers in the photo sessions, the 23-year-old virgin still well into a smile. When asked for a signature before leaving the court, Lisicki once again smiling.

“I show my best tennis here. I get rid of the champion and runner-up last year. Was pretty big,” said Lisicki.

“This tournament has certainly made me a better player. These days is tough, but this experience will help me in the future. Still believe I will be a champion one day,” he said.

Gateway DX4870-UB2B

  • Posted on June 3, 2017 at 5:02 pm

The Gateway DX4870-UB2B ($499.99 list) is a basic tower desktop PC that checks all the boxes on what you need from a new desktop, particularly if you already have a LCD display that you’re carrying over. It’s speedy for its segment, has capacious storage, will let your family keep many documents open simultaneously, and it’s relatively inexpensive. Unlike the $300 bargain basement specials, the DX4870-UB2B$499.99 at Best Buy comes with a modern Intel Core i3 processor, dual-band Wi-Fi, and lots of drive space. It’s expandable, so it can grow with your family. It’s not ground breaking, but it’s a solid choice with a great bang for the buck, so it’s our latest Editors’ Choice for budget desktop PCs.

Design and Features
The DX4870-UB2B follows other Gateway desktops, looking almost identical to the last black tower Gateway DX4870-UB17$329.99 at Newegg.com ($500). Like that model, the DX4870-UB2B comes in a tower chassis with black panels all around, including the plastic front panel and metal side panels. The system’s tray-loading DVD burner is hidden, but two of the system’s USB 2.0 ports, SD card reader, and audio jacks are exposed on the top front of the chassis. In the back, the system has four more USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, PS/2 mouse and keyboard ports, HDMI, VGA, Ethernet, more audio jacks, and two connectors for the included WiFi antennas. It would have been nice if the front USB ports were USB 3.0 to accommodate USB hard drives instead of the slower USB 2.0.

The inside of the system is certainly expandable, with plenty of space to move around for future upgrades. The system has space for two additional drives: one optical 5.25-inch bay and one 3.5-inch hard drive bay. Theoretically, you could shoehorn another three to four 2.5-inch notebook class drives in the same space, provided you have the correct brackets to hold the drives. The motherboard has four free SATA ports to service these drives. The system also has two DIMM slots free, along with a slot for a PCIe 3.0 x16 graphics card and two additional PCIe 2.0 x1 expansion cards. One PCIe x1 slot is occupied by the included 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi card, which will serve most users well. This is an improvement over other budget systems like the Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190$416.03 at antonline.com ($400) and Zotac Zbox ID83 Plus$448.99 at Amazon ($473), both of which don’t support 5Ghz WiFi, only the more common and crowded 2.4GHz channels.

The last consideration you have to make for expandability is the system’s 300W power supply. While sufficient for additional drives and minor expansion cards, 300W will be insufficient for a high-powered discrete graphics card with Nvidia’s or AMD’s highest end GPUs. You can of course swap out the included power supply, but most budget system buyers never open their chassis, even if they are tempted by the system’s expandability. Bring a screwdriver if you dare, because you’ll need it for the case door and the drive bays. At least the internal card slots are tool-less.

Like other Gateway systems, the DX4870-UB2B comes with quite a few pre-loaded applications and utilities. These include 7digital, Zinio, Kindle, eBay, Chacha, Netflix, NewsXpresso, Amazon, Tunein, Hulu Plus, Xbox Games, Cut The Rope, Stumbleupon, Skype, Merriam-Webster, Britannica, Spotify, Microsoft Office (ad), Norton Internet Security), and Wild Tangetn games. That’s a lot of pre-loaded apps, and most if not all are available for free from Microsoft Windows Store. While you may want to spend a few moments uninstalling all these programs, fret not, since the system has a capacious 1TB hard drive with plenty of free space left. The DX4870-UB2B comes with a standard one-year warranty.

Performance
The system comes with a third-generation Intel Core i3-3240 processor, 6GB of DDR3 memory, Intel HD Graphics 2500 (integrated in the Core i3 processor), and a 1TB 5,400rpm SATA hard drive. All of these components mean the system is plenty fast on our benchmark tests, certainly faster than the Lenovo Q190 and the Zbox ID83 Plus. That said, there are systems in this price range that are faster, notably the Polywell Nano i3-Q7 ($595) which trades physical and storage space for SSD speed, and the Acer Aspire AT3-600-UR11$449.99 at Newegg.com($600), which has a discrete graphics card and slightly more powerful processor adding to its performance totals. Check the performance chart link to see the final numbers, but suffice to say the DX4870-UB2B has the performance to keep your family happy for the next five years or so.

Current and Emerging Trends in Fitness

  • Posted on June 3, 2017 at 2:25 pm

Fitness is a constantly changing field. There are always new machines, methods, and theories aimed at improving the quality of life. Fitness fads may come and go, but there have been several trends in fitness that have lasted several decades and continue to grow in popularity.

Aerobic exercise has always formed the backbone of the fitness industry. Running, step aerobics, dance-type aerobics, boxing, kickboxing, and spinning, an indoor cycling class set to music, have all emerged as mainstays in health and fitness facilities. Their popularity continues to grow.

Aquatic exercise has also increased in popularity. Water has the unique ability to allow cardiovascular and muscular improvements with little stress on the joints of the body. Aquatic exercise is no longer just swimming laps; almost every class that can be done on land is now being done in the water. Running, spinning, step aerobics, and even strengthening can all be done in the water.

With the improvement of health care and longer life spans, older adult exercise has expanded and has also become a necessity to maintain a positive quality of life. Not only are older adults engaging in exercise to maintain and improve health, they are taking part in competitive road races, cycling races, and bodybuilding competitions. Age barriers no longer exist and because of this, fitness classes geared toward the older population are widespread.

As grandparents and great-grandparents take part in sports and fitness, they set an example for younger generations. These younger generations have the benefit of improved technology and more abundant food, and with these things-and a more sedentary lifestyle-come the increased chance that they will live a less healthy lifestyle than their active older family members. The fitness field combats this possibility of unhealthy living with sports and fitness programs geared toward children and young adults. This fitness trend is now faced with the challenge of improving the heath of future generations and has the opportunity to encourage a lifetime of healthy habits.

But the greatest transformation in the fitness field has been the growth of the mind-and-body exercises. There has been a shift toward gentler, more introspective exercises that also contribute to improving cardiovascular health while increasing flexibility and muscular strength. Yoga and pilates would fall into this category of exercise. Yoga has its roots in ancient India (from around 2800 BCE) and focuses on breathing and mindfulness during a practice of held poses. Pilates, on the other hand, was developed by Joseph H. Pilates (1880-1967) around 1926. Pilates’ method involved a unique series of stretching and strengthening exercises. Both yoga and pilates use an individual’s breath and self-awareness as the focus of exercise. Aside from the obvious strength and flexibility benefits, these mind and body exercises are popular for their stress relieving qualities.

Symptoms Of Celiac Disease Candida Candida And Celiac Disease Interconnection

  • Posted on June 3, 2017 at 1:52 pm

Celiac disease is disease of digestive system which raises damages in human intestine and hampers nutrients absorption from food. Absence of tolerance to gluten, a protein in wheat, rye and barley, is the cause of celiac disease. Candida albicans has in its membrane protein which very similar to gluten. Because of that people who suffer from yeast infection (Candidiasis) could become ill with celiac disease.

What are the symptoms of celiac disease candida?

Symptoms of celiac disease candida could appear in digestive system and also in other bodys parts and systems.

Digestive symptoms of celiac disease candida are: vomiting, abdominal pain and bloating, weight loss, chronic diarrhea, constipation and pale, foul-smelling, or fatty stool.
Most likely digestive symptoms have children. Additionally, when nutrition is very important for children growth, malabsorption could raise other health problems as failure to thrive in infants, delayed growth, delayed puberty.

For adults digestive symptoms are less likely. Instead of digestive symptoms of celiac disease candida adults may have some of following: fatigue, arthritis, bone or joint pain, osteoporosis, unexplained iron-deficiency anemia, seizures, missed menstrual period, tingling numbness in the hands and feet, canker sores inside the mouth, itchy skin rash called dermatitis herpetiformis.

People who are ill with celiac disease but without symptoms of celiac disease candida could develop complication over the time. They are anemia, osteoporosis, miscarriage, liver diseases and intestines cancer.

The length of time a person was breastfed, the age a person started eating gluten-containing foods, and the amount of gluten-containing foods one eats are three factors thought to play a role in when and how celiac disease appears.

As mentioned before Candida albicans also has gluten similar protein which could raise symptoms of celiac disease candida. To know cause of symptoms you need to make a blood test for certain autoantibody-proteins that has higher then normal level when human is ill with celiac disease.

If diagnosed cause will be a yeast infection (thrush infection, candidiasis) you should treat your yeast infections causes, not symptoms. Also it is possible to cure yeast infection by natural methods at home. One of natural treatment for yeast infection method is developed by health researcher Sarah Summer.
