Privacy in Data Management - BSides Winnipeg 2015
Privacy in Data Management Noman Mohammed Big data is the fuel of modern economy. It allows us to do better urban planning, combat new diseases, ensure national security, and has become the driving force behind innovation, productivity, and growth. All these new possibilities are enabled by new technologies that are capable of storing, integrating, and analyzing all sorts of digital breadcrumbs that we leave behind in this information age. On one hand, the collected data offers tremendous opportunities for mining useful information. On the other hand, the mining process poses a threat to individual privacy since the collected data often contains sensitive information. The current practice in data sharing relies primarily on policies and guidelines on the types of data that can be shared and agreements on the use of shared data. This approach alone may lead to excessive data distortion or insufficient protection. This talk will present the recent research results that try to find a right balance between the privacy protection and big data rewards. In particular, this talk will explain different definitions of privacy model, show their limitations, describe some algorithms to enforce them, and discuss open problems for future research.

David Wilcock | Corey Goode: The Antarctic Atlantis [MUST SEE LIVE DISCLOSURE!]
Are we about to hear that ancient ruins have been found in Antarctica? Is there an Alliance working to defeat the greatest threat humanity has ever faced on earth? Could the Antarctic Atlantis be part of a full or partial disclosure? Join David Wilcock on a thrill ride of discovery, beginning with Part One where he presents data on the Secret Space Program and shares the stage with legendary insider Corey Goode. This is the best public summary David and Corey have done of this amazing story that has captivated the UFO community. Part Two begins at the 53-minute mark, with David connecting the dots between intel from multiple insiders to arrive at a stunning conclusion -- that we are on the verge of major new releases of information that will transform everything we thought we knew about life on earth. A civilization of "Pre-Adamite" giants with elongated skulls appears to have crash-landed on a continent we now call Antarctica some 55,000 years ago. Various groups we collectively call the Alliance are working to defeat the Cabal / Illuminati / New World Order, thus making the headlines crazier by the day. If the Alliance succeeds, their plan is now to begin the disclosure process by telling us there was a civilization in Antarctica. We are already seeing multiple, compelling hints of this in corporate media. Find out what the insiders are telling us and help spread the word! This is a two-and-a-half-hour excerpt from David's Friday and Saturday presentations at the Conscious Life Expo 2017. In their original form they run six hours. David also spoke for three hours on Monday, presenting an incredible new model of the Cosmos based on sacred geometry -- and proving that the Sun is going to release a DNA-transforming burst of energy in our near future.

Building Energy Data Visualization Solutions for Cities (Webinar)
With more and more cities, counties, and states gathering building energy and water use information through benchmarking programs, attention is beginning to shift to how to use that information in ways that can effectively raise market awareness, and encourage building owners to take the next steps to improve the performance of their buildings. Over the past 18 months a number of cities have launched data visualization platforms, to take their benchmarking data and present it on an interactive map that allows the public to quickly see variations in city wide performance, or drill down to learn more about the performance of individual buildings. Please join the Institute for Market Transformation (IMT) as we host a webinar to learn about three examples of data visualization mapping applications that have been developed to address this need: 1. Nikhil Nadkarni (Climate and Buildings Program Manager for the City of Boston) will discuss Boston’s Building Energy Reporting system, which was launched in October 2014 as a platform to share selected metrics on reporting buildings with the public. The City used its internal resources, including an existing web map and open data tools, to create this. 2. Jim Stanley (General Manager for Stamen Design) will discuss the Chicago Energy Benchmarking platform they developed for the city of Chicago, as part of the city’s participation in the City Energy Project. This platform has been developed as an open source “packaged” solution, allowing them to deliver a relatively low cost solution for other cities with similar needs. 3. Laurie Kerr (Policy Director for Urban Green) will discuss Metered New York, a platform that displays benchmarking data contextually along with other local information such as incentives. This was originally created for NYC by Urban Green, the New York Affiliate of the U.S. Green Building Council, but can be easily adapted for use by other cities because of its modular features and CMS-style back-end. Each of these presenters will provide a short demo of their platform, describe the high level project goals they were hoping to achieve, and shed light on the budget range, staffing, and other resource needs cities should anticipate for development, initial launch, and on-going maintenance.

"Common CORE (from INDIA) "Education" Enslaving Your Child"
Mirrored from Gnostic Media https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAJ0AE01Nqw Gnostic Media Website http://www.gnosticmedia.com/clint-richardson-interview-pt-8-common-core-education-brave-new-world-173/ This episode is an interview with Clint Richardson, pt. 8 titled "Common CORE "Education" -- Enslaving your Child" and is being released on Friday, September 05, 2013. This interview with Clint was recorded Tuesday, Sept. 03rd, 2013. Clint Richardson is back for his 8th time. A protégé of Walter Burian, Clint Richardson is back for his eighth installment on the CAFR, or Comprehensive Annual Financial Report -- and this time we're going to focus on COMMON CORE. Clint has been on previously to discuss his videos The Corporation Nation, Lethal Injection, and his investigation of my own local School District, CAFR SCHOOL: RIM of the World Unified School District Expose. As always, Clint's digging through the primary documentation brings a very important vantage point. A former Hollywood sound designer and musician, a crisis of conscious led him to begin researching, writing, and eventually producing primary research documentaries exposing the very research that Hollywood is designed to hide from the masses. Now unable to work in his industry of study (for this Hollywood betrayal), Clint applies his professional sound talent and newly learned video skills, as well as a devotion to first-hand, primary research and writing, to contribute to the "Waking Up" of the population at large. His credo... expose "them" until they dispose of him.

He'd planned and carried out the destruction of that warship because the information of its existence and location was verified by a magnetometer. But, if he'd known how the information had been obtained--if he'd known it had been guessed at by a discharged spaceport employee, and a paranoid personality, and a man who used a hazel twig or something similar--if he'd known that, he'd never have dreamed of accepting it.

99-04 Jeep Grand Cherokee: how to replace Transmission Solenoid Pack on a 45RFE transmission
Enjoyed the video or found it helpful? feel generous? you can donate on the main channel page. Thanks for watching! this video will show you how to replace the transmission solenoid pack. this can fix issues such as your car being stuck in 2nd gear "limp in mode" I was getting a P0700 code when I read it with a code reader I got.. P0770 P0760 P0750 which are all transmission solenoid error codes so I thought for sure this pack needed to be replaced.. unfortunately thid didn't work for me bu it might work for you . make sure you do your research before performing this costly repair BEFORE REPLACE SOLENOID PACK TRY REPLACING THESE (buy 2) Transmission speed sensor: http://goo.gl/eQ4fXw ISSUE WAS RESOLVED!! I later gave up on trying to fix this dreaded P0700 error code and took it into the shop. they said the transmission was fine, but it was low on ATF+4 so we filled it up, cleared the codes and drove halfway around the block for the code to come back.. they later read all the codes and the one that stood out the most was P1758: Transmission Relay output ALWAYS OFF other transmission codes were P0750: low rev solenoid Circuit P1734: 2C pressure switch P1781: Overdrive Pressure Switch P1733: 4C pressure Switch P1732: Underdrive Pressure switch the relay problem signified an electrical issue, so they charged me $90 to check all the cables and make sure power was getting down to the tramsmission. Power was NOT gettting to the transmission so they checked the Relay, The Relay was ok, but the TCM (Transmission Control Module - computer) was not providing power to the Relay. so they instructed me to just buy a new TCM I went to this site: http://store.allcomputerresources.com/20jegrchtcmt1.html and purchased a new TCM. got it in the mail today 11/11/2013 and BAM! MY JEEP RUNS LIKE NEW, now that it has a brand new solenoid pack and a new TCM all the Transmission codes are cleared!

Eldridge & Co.:  Kenneth Prewitt on the Census
Former director of the U.S. Census and Columbia University professor, Kenneth Prewitt talks with Ronnie Eldridge about the history of the census and the significance of the numbers reported every 10 years. Of particular concern is the reliance - in the 21st century - on archaic and discredited 18th century science based on the "five races" white, black, red, yellow, brown. In "What Is Your Race," Prof. Prewitt shows why the way we count by race is flawed. (Taped: 09/16/13) Ronnie M. Eldridge, articulate, outspoken, and passionate member of the New York City Council from 1989 to 2001, hosts this series which covers the issues and institutions, the people and politics of New York City.

A few Challenges to Make Machine Learning Easy: Dr. Francisco J Martin
Dr. Francisco J Martin, CEO bigml.com gave a talk 'A few Challenges to Make Machine Learning Easy' @ACM San Francisco Bay Area chapter. In the age of data, Machine Learning is the key component to make data-driven decisions, develop smart applications, and build predictive analytics. However, Machine Learning is complex. The current tools are complicated and do not scale well. Most solutions are costly, easily involving hundreds of thousands of dollars and substantial resources. Additionally, experts with industry experience are very scarce. BigML is building a scalable, cloud-based service that makes Machine Learning easy or, at least, lowers the barriers that most developers and business folks face to learn from data. In this talk, I will first demo BigML and then describe the efforts, highlight some of the key findings, and discuss some of the challenges from a technical, user, and business perspective, related to developing a Machine Learning service for the masses.

March 2015 Economic Update with Katie Hill
The Reserve Bank of Australia’s (RBA) first interest rate cut since August 2013 will be of most immediate benefit to the housing and household sectors. Further, consumer confidence will be the main determinant of Australian households possibly increasing spending. As local commodity prices have been trending lower in recent years, so has the Australian dollar. As a positive, an increase in import prices should help domestic retailers. Apart from China, Asia’s economic growth looks to remain solid, particularly for its exporters benefiting from a strengthening US economy. A booming US jobs market should be highly beneficial to wages growth and those buying or building homes, while a stronger US dollar is a potential boon for Australian exporters. It is too soon to say whether the European Central Bank’s flirtation with quantitative easing will benefit the real economy. However, longer term, eurozone growth should only pick up, though concerns of deflation risk remain.

Carter finds that he has great strength on this planet, due to its lesser gravity. Carter soon falls in among the Tharks, a nomadic tribe of the planet's warlike, four-armed, green inhabitants. Thanks to his strength and combat abilities he rises in position in the tribe and earns the respect eventually the friendship of Tars Tarkas one of the Thark chiefs. The Tharks subsequently capture Dejah Thoris, Princess of Helium, a member of the humanoid red Martian race. The red Martians inhabit a loose network of city states and control the desert planet's canals, along which its agriculture is concentrated.

[DEFCON 21] The Growing Irrelevance of US Government Cybersecurity Intelligence Information
The Growing Irrelevance of US Government Cybersecurity Intelligence Information Speaker: Mark Weatherford - Principal, The Chertoff Group The rapidly changing threat landscape has finally provided relevant business justification for commercial companies to invest in developing cybersecurity intelligence that used to be the domain of the government -- and they are doing it at a pace that is making the value of government "Classified" cybersecurity information increasingly irrelevant. The organic intelligence being developed by private companies and the informal cybersecurity intelligence coming out of the research community and some "Invitation Only" or "You're Not Invited" groups is simply more actionable and more valuable than that provided by the government. While the federal government will always, and should always, have important visibility of the threat, the evolution of technology is giving the private sector the means to develop sophisticated, high quality information that rivals the government.

Auburn Coach Wife Kristi Malzahn Agrees with Match & eHarmony: Men are Jerks
My advice is this: Settle! That's right. Don't worry about passion or intense connection. Don't nix a guy based on his annoying habit of yelling "Bravo!" in movie theaters. Overlook his halitosis or abysmal sense of aesthetics. Because if you want to have the infrastructure in place to have a family, settling is the way to go. Based on my observations, in fact, settling will probably make you happier in the long run, since many of those who marry with great expectations become more disillusioned with each passing year. (It's hard to maintain that level of zing when the conversation morphs into discussions about who's changing the diapers or balancing the checkbook.) Obviously, I wasn't always an advocate of settling. In fact, it took not settling to make me realize that settling is the better option, and even though settling is a rampant phenomenon, talking about it in a positive light makes people profoundly uncomfortable. Whenever I make the case for settling, people look at me with creased brows of disapproval or frowns of disappointment, the way a child might look at an older sibling who just informed her that Jerry's Kids aren't going to walk, even if you send them money. It's not only politically incorrect to get behind settling, it's downright un-American. Our culture tells us to keep our eyes on the prize (while our mothers, who know better, tell us not to be so picky), and the theme of holding out for true love (whatever that is—look at the divorce rate) permeates our collective mentality. Even situation comedies, starting in the 1970s with The Mary Tyler Moore Show and going all the way to Friends, feature endearing single women in the dating trenches, and there's supposed to be something romantic and even heroic about their search for true love. Of course, the crucial difference is that, whereas the earlier series begins after Mary has been jilted by her fiancé, the more modern-day Friends opens as Rachel Green leaves her nice-guy orthodontist fiancé at the altar simply because she isn't feeling it. But either way, in episode after episode, as both women continue to be unlucky in love, settling starts to look pretty darn appealing. Mary is supposed to be contentedly independent and fulfilled by her newsroom family, but in fact her life seems lonely. Are we to assume that at the end of the series, Mary, by then in her late 30s, found her soul mate after the lights in the newsroom went out and her work family was disbanded? If her experience was anything like mine or that of my single friends, it's unlikely. And while Rachel and her supposed soul mate, Ross, finally get together (for the umpteenth time) in the finale of Friends, do we feel confident that she'll be happier with Ross than she would have been had she settled down with Barry, the orthodontist, 10 years earlier? She and Ross have passion but have never had long-term stability, and the fireworks she experiences with him but not with Barry might actually turn out to be a liability, given how many times their relationship has already gone up in flames. It's equally questionable whether Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw, who cheated on her kindhearted and generous boyfriend, Aidan, only to end up with the more exciting but self-absorbed Mr. Big, will be better off in the framework of marriage and family. (Some time after the breakup, when Carrie ran into Aidan on the street, he was carrying his infant in a Baby Björn. Can anyone imagine Mr. Big walking around with a Björn?)
