Join us for this live webinar on Thursday, September 10 at 10 a.m. Pacific, 1 p.m. Eastern.The face-to-face B2B sales process of the past — the many phone calls, the gratuitous lunches, the exhausting trade shows, followed by more phone calls — has been transformed by the digital landscape.The number of touchpoints and opportunities that now exist to intercept prospects and turn them into viable leads is unprecedented.That doesn’t mean lead generation has become easy.It takes a healthy mix of art and science to succeed in a hyper-competitive, crowded space.And it takes a well-honed knowledge of all the available channels and how they can compliment one another.
Two spacecraft drifted closer to one another far above planet Earth, as they prepared to dock.USA Cap Com-Huston: Go ahead.The plot concerned a NASA mission in which a US spacecraft ran into problem.The three crew members on board were saved by a Soviet mission also in orbit.It is planned that the first experimental flight to test these systems be conducted during 1975, envisaging the docking of a United States Apollo-type spacecraft and a Soviet Soyuz-type spacecraft with visits of astronauts in each other s spacecraft.The implementation of these projects will be carried out on the basis of principles and procedures which will be developed in accordance with the summary of results of the meeting between representatives of the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the USSR Academy of Sciences on the question of developing compatible systems for rendezvous and docking of manned spacecraft and space stations of the USA and the USSR dated April 6, 1972.
Humans love a good space story.That's why it's so much fun to speculate about unusual objects seen in images of Mars.Our imaginations turn rock formations into faces and cosmic rays into alien communications.A recent image from the Mars Curiosity rover generated plenty of online speculation about what looks like a crab-shaped object tucked into a dark cranny.It's probably just a weird rock formation.Join us as we explore some famous Mars mysteries and the scientific explanations behind them.
the Empty premises increased in Finland.booth's branches, changing the pace open plan offices and many state offices.the metropolitan area office vacancy rate rose in the spring a new record high of 13%.Finland's largest office space broker Catella Property estimates that the premises vacancy rates accelerated from two directions: construction of new growth and office of the use case will be reduced.over the past Four years, office space in use has decreased in the helsinki metropolitan area about 200 000 square meter.Companies, however, want to change to modern buildings, so at the same time has completed more than 300 000 square meters of new office space.
I can imagine the scene that must have unfolded at IBM leading up to last week.One sure to lure women closer to the brand.A fun, IBM-hosted hackathon that would boost the image of the company — nay, the tech industry as a whole — as a female-friendly space.This is a good idea that we should pursue.On December 6, 2015 — in a tweet that s since been deleted — IBM shared a link to the page to its at the time 265,000 followers.Second, HackaHairdryer touched a hot issue: women in tech.
Finnish science is in stable condition as well as the world average, occurs in the Finnish academy of Science space 2016 -report.for Example, the number of scientific publications per capita in many OECD countries compared with the highest, and Finnish researchers ' international co-publications share has clearly grown in recent years.in the Years 2011-2014 international co-publications was more than half, when in the early 1990s, the number was 27 percent.the number of Scientific publications over the last ten years elevated a little bit, but other research-intensive countries are, however, progressed the fastest.according to the Report of Finland of the above were, for example, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden and Denmark.University research expenditures last year were 1.45 billion euros, of which more than half of universities basic funding.
Ten years ago, I was in the early stages of the PhD programme in robotics at Carnegie Mellon University.The potential of these technologies was incredible, but up to that point, the focus had been overwhelmingly on applications in areas such as defence, space, manufacturing or pure research.Then, top autonomous driving research was funded almost exclusively by Darpa and other government agencies, and although large-scale autonomous cars have always been one of the dreams of robotics researchers, we would have all been shocked to see what is happening today: dozens of the biggest companies in the world led by a search-engine company , as well as highly funded startups, are collectively investing billions of dollars at the pursuit of the commercial autonomous car.Now there is a sense of inevitability to autonomous cars being a staple of our daily lives within a decade or sooner , with the only questions being the pace at which they will take over, and which of the companies chasing this prize will pull away from the pack.These developments in transportation are a great template for how robotics can disrupt even the most entrenched industries, and highlights a few themes that we will begin to see more frequently:• Incumbents will rarely be the ones that disrupt their own spaces.
Three years into the life cycle of the Xbox One, storage space has become a valuable commodity.The base model’s 500GB drive doesn’t seem quite so spacious when your “Ready to Install” list is packed with AAA games that can take up more than 50GB, and almost double that if you’re downloading 4K-compatible games on an Xbox One X.Unless you’ve invested in an external drive to increase your console’s storage capacity, you’ve probably experienced the feeling that comes when you’re forced to delete one of your games to make room for another.To help you out, we’ve assembled this handy guide on how to delete and re-install your content.From the Xbox One home screen, press the Xbox button to bring up the dashboard, then select the “My Games & Apps” tile.Highlight the tile of the game you’d like to remove from your hard drive and press the Menu button on your controller.

Well, most of the time that wasn’t just coincidence – those photos were taken during what’s commonly known as the golden hour, also known as the magic hour.Also, while the terms are nearly synonymous, golden hour actually has a definition based on the measurable angle of the sun to the horizon, whereas magic hour is a broader term that sometimes incorporates both the golden hour and the blue hour — another measurable time based on the sun’s angle to the horizon.The temperature of the light during this time is, as the name suggests, in the yellow range when it comes to the light spectrum.When the sun is very low in the sky, its angle is more drastic in relation to the earth, making shadows longer and softer.Having long shadows in your shot helps show all three dimensions of the world when you’re trying to capture them in a two dimensional space.Shooting portraits during the golden hour
These changes are especially apparent in archive photos recently uncovered by the New York Public Library.The collection contains prints from 1935 to 1936 by Berenice Abbott, a photographer who documented NYC's transformation over the previous century in her series "Changing New York."Comparing her photos to Google Street View images reveals how the city's public spaces have changed up to today."The bones of the city are still there, but we're good at adapting it for what we want."Jefferson Market Courthouse, 1935 vs 2014.Berenice Abbott/Google/Skye GouldIn 1939, the tracks in front of the courthouse migrated underground with the creation of the subway, bringing more light to the street and increasing the value of the nearby real estate.

Mujjo s stab at the poorly supported touchscreen glove space is the only pair of leather touchscreen gloves worth getting excited about or owning.The gloves are wind and waterproof Ethiopian lambskin, with a magnetic clasp that will make you happy every time you snap it.Of course, you don t really need the clasp because the gloves actually fit.No gross-looking fingertip dots here either.I immediately got my hands in older Mujjo s Single Layered Touchscreen Gloves back when they were first released, and while they were certainly the best I had used at the time, they weren t easy to snap, and they weren t leather.The Leather Touchscreen Gloves fix everything this product category has lacked up to this point, and are an easy recommendation for pretty much anyone.
A year ago, privately held online lenders like Prosper, SoFi, and Avant looked all but certain to go public at the same, if not higher, than the unicorn valuations than their venture investors have assigned them.In an SEC filing yesterday, Lending Club, which announced the surprise departure of its founder and CEO last Monday, revealed that investors who contributed a significant amount of funding for loans are now examining that performance or are otherwise reluctant to invest.But what started out as a disruptive movement known as peer-to-peer was far more novel than what it became, which, in many cases, is a front for whoever is providing some of these startups with capital to lend.While companies operating in this space come with inherent advantages — they use automated loan applications; they have no retail branches; they use electronic data sources and tech-enabled underwriting models that help them to quickly identify a borrower s credit risk –having deep-pocketed friends has made other things easier, like provide funding decisions within 48 to 72 hours.Smartly, some players are already looking to reimagine themselves as broader financial outfits.It also said last month that it s hoping to drum up more investor demand for the debt it originates by starting a hedge fund that will buy its own loans.
Apple has announced that it s creating its first app development accelerator in Asia, as the Cupertino company seeks to woo India s engineering community with a dedicated space in which to learn design best-practices for Apple s mobile operating system.Expected to open in Bengaluru in early 2017, the iOS App Design and Development Accelerator will support engineering talent and accelerate growth in India s iOS developer community, according to a press release.India has emerged as a key battleground for the big U.S. tech companies as both Google and Facebook look to tap the burgeoning online population — with varying degrees of success — even though much of the country s 1.3 billion inhabitants remain offline.And earlier this year, Apple confirmed plans to open a new development hub in Hyderabad, India that s expected to eventually house around 4,500 people.Apple s new app accelerator will essentially serve to help developers improve their design and development skills for iOS and will include one-on-one app reviews for developers, as well as support for Apple s programming language, Swift.India is home to one of the most vibrant and entrepreneurial iOS development communities in the world, said Apple CEO Tim Cook.With the opening of this new facility in Bengaluru, we re giving developers access to tools which will help them create innovative apps for customers around the world.Bengaluru is a major startup hub in India — an estimated one million people work in the city s technology industry, while more than 40 percent of university graduates in the area specialize in IT or engineering, according to Apple.This isn t the first such center Apple has unveiled — earlier this year, it announced its first iOS App Development Center in Europe, to be located at a partner institution in Naples, Italy.The company also has a similar hub in Brazil.
Researchers have developed a new solar powered battery, capable of changing its shape to fit various flexible forms.The team says the battery could transform the wearables market by lowering the space required for a battery, a big benefit for e-skin and e-clothes products.See Also: America trumps Europe in fitness wearables The components are electronically connected via flexible copper-polymer interconnects, mounted on a highly elastic silicone core, and enclosed within a silicone shell, the team said.The authors demonstrated the use of these systems for continual logging and wireless transmission of body temperature data in a variety of realistic scenarios, such as monitoring skin temperature during physical exercise and bathing, and measuring temperature changes during breathing.The battery may also be a welcome addition to the e-skin market, with researchers recently creating a much longer lasting tattoo that changes color and can even track things like UV rays and heart-rate.Wearables are still a young market, but with 67 percent growth from 2015 to 2016, more companies are starting to see the potential of devices able to gather more data on the customer.
Using a special 3D camera, a Tango equipped device looks at the world around it, and uses that information to map a space, add in augmented reality objects, or simply track the location of a mobile device.By building a memory of the world around it, the Tango device can recognize those spaces, and properly fit objects back into them.Several demos served to illustrate how well this worked.Turning on area learning produced entirely different results.Granted, it sometimes took a few seconds to re-identify the space around it, but once it did, the box popped right back up.Memory makes for better multiplayerArea learning really opens up the possibilities of VR and AR gaming with multiple users.
Even today, it s great fun, testing your reflexes at a constant clip as you try to leap between rooftops, into tight office windows, and over fast-falling alien ships.I vividly recall playing it daily for weeks and weeks, frequently delaying my bedtime as one more game before shut-eye ended up being an hour or more of lost sleep.Due to a back-and-forth legal battle with a notorious trademark troll, the game was pulled from the App Store a couple times and even renamed on multiple occasions.See larger imageSurely one of the all-time great iPhone high-score chasers, Orbital $3 challenges you to keep shooting balls into a tight game board—and once each stops bouncing, it expands until it touches something else.And so it goes, as you carefully shoot more and more balls into the limited space while trying to clear the ones already there, all the while ensuring one doesn t bounce the wrong way and end up below the line.See larger imageOnce upon a time, Words With Friends free seemed like the biggest mobile multiplayer game in the world, as the asynchronous turn-based approach was perfect for on-the-go play and fans often juggled several games at once.
Elon Musk s SpaceX made waves by announcing in late April that it planned to field a Mars mission by 2018.While it s fairly clear on exploratory issues, it s much less clear on exoplanetary settlements and exploitation of resources.The U.S. Government is working through the issues raised by SpaceX s planned mission, Motherboard reports.Such an agreement is vital, considering Article VI of the treaty states that signees shall bear international responsibility for national activities in outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, whether such activities are carried on by governmental agencies or by nongovernmental entities, and that the signee governments require authorization and continuing supervision by the appropriate State Party to the Treaty.This likely means whatever shape SpaceX s mission does take in the end, it will likely be in some form of a public-private partnership to ensure the company is within the limits of international law.This might be the most important part of the two entities work together, considering Musk s ultimate goal is a permanent settlement on Mars spearheaded by SpaceX itself.
Photo: AFPEstablishing a human colony on the moon and travelling to Mars has been the stuff of dreams since the dawn of the space age.They are growing vegetables in soils similar to those found on the moon and Mars, looking for ways to help space pioneers grow their own crops.The US space agency makes ground similar to that on the moon from sand found in an Arizona desert, while Mars crimson soil is scooped from a volcano in Hawaii, Wamelink says.If analyses show that the vegetables contain arsenic, mercury or iron, making them unfit for human consumption, the soil can be purified by growing other plant species such as violets, which absorb the poisons.Extremely cold temperatures – dropping to minus 62 degrees Celsius on Mars – as well as a lack of oxygen, means that lunar or Martian vegetables and fruit could only be grown in a closed and controlled environment.Technology and the know-how to keep astronauts alive on Mars still has a long way to go says Christophe Lasseur, a European Space Agency life support expert, who deals with metabolic aspects of space travel.
