Microsoft Office 365 launches as public beta

first_imgBack in October 2010, Microsoft announced Office 365, the company’s first cloud-based productivity software product and, some would say, a direct response to Google Apps. On Sunday, Microsoft announced that Office 365 would now be offered as a public beta to both small businesses and enterprises.The small business beta is open for companies with up to 25 employees who need a solution that doesn’t require an IT staff, but still offers essential email, calendar, and website services. There is also an enterprise version for any size organization looking for more features and control, Office Professional Plus, Active Directory, and high-end archiving. Once an account is activated, which may take 2-4 weeks as part of the beta, users will have 30 days (from activation) to decide whether they would like to purchase the service or not.Introductions to both the small business and enterprise offerings are below. Small business owners are billed month-to-month starting at $6/user while those enrolling in the enterprise program have four plans to choose from starting at $10/user/month for the E1 plan. Currently, only the E3 plan, which begins at $24/user/month, is available in the public beta. All four (E1-E4) are described below.In conjunction with the launch of Office 365 to the public, Microsoft is also offering what it is referring to as the Office 365 Marketplace. The marketplace includes a number of recommended partners that are able to help deploy an Office 365 solution as well as other services and featured applications that can work with the productivity suite. For all of these (websites, collaboration, messaging, etc.) Microsoft promises 99.9% uptime which may ease fears by some companies who require a high degree of uptime in support of their business.Read more at the Microsoft Office 365 Blog, Microsoft news release and the Office 365 website.Brian’s OpinionI have really been surprised how long Microsoft has taken to offer a cloud-based productivity suite. I based this on its dominance with its client-based Microsoft Office suite, but perhaps it’s that dominance that caused the delay. The executives at Microsoft have taken a “wait and see” attitude before beginning down the road of offering a cloud-based version of Office. Unfortunately, while taking that pause, Google went ahead and offered their own cloud-based apps and almost certainly grabbed some early customers who would have considered a similar Microsoft offering.Google had one great advantage which enabled it to launch Google Apps first: it didn’t have to worry about undermining an existing (and hugely profitable) product. Microsoft does have to worry about that. They could lose a considerable amount of revenue if there is a fast shift to the online offering for Office rather than the traditional client-based software. In return though, Microsoft does gain the holy grail of revenue for a software company: subscription revenue.Microsoft has for a long time been trying to move companies to a subscription model. Companies that currently sign up for a Microsoft Enterprise Agreement must commit to deploy a desktop-based product such as Windows 7, Microsoft Office or client access licenses to all business PC’s. Microsoft previously only offered perpetual licensing for this agreement which means if you terminate the agreement you are no longer entitled to upgrade rights, but you get to keep the software and any previous upgrades you received. Now, Microsoft EA customers have a new subscription option which entitles them to software and upgrade rights like the perpetual program, but the big caveat is if you walk away from the agreement you walk away with nothing which encourages companies to continue their subscription. Office 365 is clearly an extension of this subscription business model by Microsoft to guarantee revenue annually.last_img read more

Des sondages contradictoires sur le nucléaire

first_imgDes sondages contradictoires sur le nucléaireHier, deux sondages sur la sortie du nucléaire ont été publiés. Commandés par EDF et par Europe Écologie, ils donnent des résultats radicalement opposés.Alors que les autorités japonaises luttent toujours pour limiter les dégâts de l’accident nucléaire survenu à la centrale de Fukushima suite au séisme, les États s’interrogent sur la poursuite de leur programme nucléaire. En France, deux sondages ont été commandés l’un par EDF et l’autre par Europe Écologie, afin de connaitre l’opinion de la population. Publiées hier, les deux enquêtes révèlent des résultats totalement contradictoires.À lire aussiLa fusion nucléaire pourrait bien devenir prochainement une réalitéSelon le sondage TNS Sofres réalisé à la demande d’EDF, 55% des Français ne sont pas favorables à “la demande des écologistes d’abandonner la production d’électricité nucléaire en France” contre 44% favorables. Au contraire, les résultats obtenus par l’Ifop et commandés par Europe Écologie indiquent que 70% des Français sont pour une sortie du nucléaire, avec 51% pour un arrêt progressif à 25 ou 30 ans et 19% pour une sortie immédiate. Et seulement 30% souhaitent que la France “poursuive son programme nucléaire et construise de nouvelles centrales”.Interrogée hier sur France Inter, Cécile Duflot, secrétaire nationale d’Europe Écologie Les Verts (EELV) a jugé “un peu trop gros” le sondage EDF au lendemain des élections cantonales où les écologistes ont obtenu un bon score. Elle a également tenu à indiquer que leur sondage réalisé entre le 15 et le 17 mars sur 1.008 personnes, n’était pas censé être rendu public. “C’est un sondage qu’on fait de façon épisodique pour évaluer quelle est la perception des Français sur ce sujet sur lequel on a été politiquement et pendant longtemps extrêmement isolés” a t-elle expliqué à l’antenne. Aujourd’hui, EELV plaide pour un référendum national sur une sortie du nucléaire dans les 30 prochaines années. “Sortir du nucléaire de manière intelligente et concertée, c’est possible” estime Cécile Duflot.Le 22 mars 2011 à 11:05 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Klopp lauds fantastic James Milner

first_imgLiverpool manager Jürgen Klopp is full of praise for midfielder James Milner as he is set to make his 500th Premier League appearance against Bournemouth on Saturday.Milner will reach the milestone when he lines up against Bournemouth on Saturday, and Klopp was proud of the feat and has praised his vice-captain.“He started early! That makes it possible to have 500,” Klopp told the club’s website.“He’s a fantastic professional – that gives you the opportunity as well. A few players had the same length of career but were not always available. Millie deserves that number.Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“It’s typical of him that he sets another standard for a lot of other players. He’s so important. He’s a role model in the dressing room, a proper English professional in the best understanding.“He helps me a lot, of course, with his attitude. He is really smart. It’s nice to have him around. He played different positions for us and always did well, even if he didn’t like it. He’s a fantastic player.”last_img read more

MI vs RCB Dream 11 and MPL Fantasy tips live stream preview

first_imgMomentum is immensely important in sports, more so, in T20 cricket, where the team on a roll tends to win matches in a spree. Royal Challengers Bangalore, who finally got off the mark in this year’s season, would want this momentum to carry them forward. They take on the Mumbai Indians, a side which lost their previous encounter against Rajasthan Royals, and in Wankhede where the surface generally evens out the contest, this match promises to be a real humdinger.Predicted XI for both sides: Rohit SharmaIANSMumbai Indians Predicted XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Jason Behrendorff, Lasith Malinga, Jasprit BumrahRoyal Challengers Bangalore Predicted XI: Parthiv Patel (wk), Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers, Moeen Ali, Marcus Stoinis, Shivam Dube, Pawan Negi, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed SirajFantasy tips and suggestions: File photo of Royal Challengers Bangalore playersSAJJAD HUSSAIN/AFP/Getty ImagesWicket-keeper: Quinton de Kock, after a series of starts, finally got going in the match against Rajasthan Royals and should be the first pick in the side as he will now fancy a string of big scores under his belt, before jetting off to South Africa for World Cup preparations. Batsmen: Rohit Sharma looked a million dollar in the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore and might enjoy the RCB bowling attack on a flat Wankhede surface. Also, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers have found their groove and if RCB have to dominate in the remainder of games, both these batsmen have to keep churning out runs. Suryakumar Yadav can be the fourth pick as the batsman in this side as he has looked in good form this season and a big score could well be around the corner.All-rounders: Hardik Pandya and Marcus Stoinis – While Hardik has been in fine six-hitting form for Mumbai Indians this season, Stoinis has been a mixed-bag. Both these players have to be more consistent with the ball for their sides to motor on in this tournament.Spinners: Mumbai Indians spinners have not been very good this year. While Rahul Chahar has looked in patches,he has not been able to pick enough wickets. Yuzvendra Chahal, on the other hand, has been the most consistent player for RCB over the years and this season has not been any different. He should be in the side as the lone spinner.Seam bowlers: Jason Behrendorff was taken to the cleaners by Chris Gayle in the previous game, but with the new ball, he has the tendency to pick up wickets up front. He should be accompanied by Jasprit Bumrah, who has been brilliant once again. From the Royal Challengers Bangalore, Umesh Yadav should be picked as he has a good record against the Mumbai Indians.last_img read more

first_imgEducation minister Dipu Moni File PhotoNewly-appointed education minister Dipu Moni said strict measures would be taken against educational institutions if they were found charging students extra fees.She gave the warning while exchanging post-election greetings in Chandpur sadar upazila on Friday afternoon, reports UNB.Mentioning charging excessive fees for examination as an offense, the minister said, “Steps will be taken against [educational institutions] if we get evidence of charging extra fee,” she said. “We are ready to face challenges and do everything to ensure quality education.”Additional deputy commissioner Shawkat Osman, sadar upazila executive officer Kaniz Fatema, additional superintendent of police Jahid Parvez Chowdhury, district Awami League president Nasir Uddin Ahmed, general secretary Abu Naeem Patwari Dulal, vice president JR Wadud Tipu, among others, were present.Meanwhile, on the occasion of Bangabandhu’s Homecoming anniversary on Thursday, Moni said, the nation’s founding father was harmed more by enemies from inside the country than those in Pakistan.“His return was a fortunate event for us but local and foreign enemies killed him along with his family,” she continued, “They feared that Bangladesh would move forward under Bangabandhu’s strong leadership.”last_img read more

Game of the Year Sneak King

first_img Review: ‘Fantasy Strike’ Is A Fighting Game That Understands…Game of the Year: Jordan Minor’s Best Video Games of 2018 Stay on target For too long the definition of “Game of the Year” has been unfairly narrow. How boring is it to see every website shower the same stale AAA games with praise at the end of each holiday season? So at we’re doing what we can to put a stop to this in Game of the Year, a new column celebrating worthy alternative picks for the year’s greatest game regardless of genre, platform, year of release, or even quality. Here, any game can be Game of the Year!Enough fooling around with sex toys and chicken bands. It’s time to get to the Burger King content that truly matters. Sneak King is a stealth-action video game where you play as the Burger King King and surprise folks with Whoppers. It’s the game that the Game of the Year column was made for.As part of a deal with Microsoft, in 2006 Burger King and developer Blitz Games released three vaguely Burger King-themed games for the Xbox, and Xbox 360 customers could purchase alongside their burgers and fries for a limited time. They were nothing but glorified ads, and two of the games in the series, PocketBike Racer and Big Bumpin’, were just cheap and boring and normal vehicle games. Big Bumpin’ is at least fun to say.However, Sneak King was weird and wonderful enough to justify the entire initiative. The Burger King commercials that feature the King rely upon his inherent creepiness, his quiet, unchanging grin. Sneak King (sneaking, get it?) takes this idea and runs with it. This really is a stealth game like Metal Gear Solid or Splinter Cell, but instead of stalking people like a monster to murder them, you stalk them like a monster to give them fast food in a cul-de-sac or at a saw mill.That premise alone is hilarious enough to make Sneak King an intriguing curiosity, which is good because the premise is pretty much the only thing Sneak King has going for it. Financially these games did pretty well for both Burger King and the (now defunct) developers. They sold millions of copies. But the quality was about as low as you’d expect for shameless food tie-in game ads. Sneak King is probably pretty tough to find now, but unless you’re really into bizarre fast food collector’s items, don’t feel compelled to rush out and play it.Still, Sneak King has just enough of an insane creative spark to keep me from totally writing it off as garbage. Realizing that the Burger King King is the perfect star for a stealth game is frankly genius. It makes me legitimately want a better made version of this game running on something like the Fox engine powering Metal Gear Solid V. Or imagine an AAA remake of Sneak King that’s episodic like the new Hitman, each mission takes you to a different part of the world where Burger King happens to be. There’s a Popeyes expansion pack.Heck, other fast food chains should get in on the video game action, too. A lounge singing rhythm game starring Mac Tonight. A Tropico clone but with Colonel Sanders instead of fake Castro. It’s time we broke Taco Bell’s spicy stranglehold on gamer culture. Sneak King is the Game of the Year, but it’s just the start.Check back next week to read about the next Game of the Year!last_img read more

Google Wins FCC Approval to Keep Developing RadarBased Hand Sensor

first_img Hear from Polar Explorers, ultra marathoners, authors, artists and a range of other unique personalities to better understand the traits that make excellence possible. 1 min read This story originally appeared on Engadget Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) team has been working on Project Soli since 2015. The gesture-based system uses broad beam radar to detect and capture hand movements, turning them into commands for mobile devices. Until now, though, the tech has been restricted, with some companies — including Facebook — claiming that the high frequency levels required might interfere with existing technology. Now, the FCC has granted a waiver that will allow Soli to operate at higher levels than currently allowed, and therefore continue development as Google originally intended.Related: What’s Happening on The Entrepreneur Index Right NowAccording to the FCC, Soli poses “minimal potential of causing harmful interference,” and it’s even been cleared for use on aircraft. Increasing Soli’s frequency band and power level — which Google says is consistent with European Telecommunications Standards Institute guidance — will improve the tech’s accuracy and range of applications, which at this stage focus on the virtual control of devices such as smart watches, but could in the future bring significant benefits for users with mobility, speech and tactile impairments.

Before her webcomics took off, she was going to be an elementary school teacher. At first, the comics were just in French. But when her friends wanted to show her work to their English-speaking friends, she started to translate them. The English version of her webcomics became immensely more popular online, leading to the strong following 30-year-old Sophie has today.I learned a great deal about Sophie’s life from these few hours.

But I felt completely at ease with Sophie — she just has a very open and warm way about her.We discussed politics, Canadian history and geography, musical theater, and our shared experiences of being harassed online.For someone who was doxxed, had her website hacked, and received numerous death threats, Sophie was in good spirits. She smiled and joked about it, even referring to her harassers as her ‘biggest fans’ due to the amount of time they spend analyzing her comics.We walked over to the LGBT Center in Greenwich Village. It was here that Sophie invited me interview her during her talk. I sat next to the accomplished artist and asked her questions about her life and her work. We developed a bit of a rapport, and made the audience laugh.If comics don’t work out, Sophie could definitely have a career in stand-up comedy. Sophie Labelle (left) and Ilast_img read more

Despite many advancements in PCa radiotherapy, the close prostate-rectum proximity makes it challenging to deliver adequate radiation to the prostate without injuring the rectum (defined as the Organ At Risk – OAR). The SpaceOAR System is intended to temporarily position the anterior rectal wall away from the prostate during radiotherapy for PCa.Placed through a small needle, the hydrogel is administered as a liquid, but quickly solidifies into a soft gel that expands the space between the prostate and rectum. The hydrogel spacer maintains this space until radiotherapy is complete. The spacer then liquefies and is absorbed and cleared from the body in the patient’s urine.“SpaceOAR hydrogel is a valuable new tool for urologists and radiation oncologists and should be instrumental in the adoption of advanced prostate cancer radiotherapy protocols,” said John Sylvester, M.D., of Lakewood Ranch Oncology in Bradenton, Florida, and a principal investigator in the SpaceOAR clinical trial. “Shielding the rectum from radiation may enable the utilization of dose escalation (more prostate radiation for improved cancer kill rates) and hypofractionation (fewer radiation treatment sessions), both of which should have substantial patient benefits and help reduce healthcare costs.”According to the American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Institute, prostate cancer is second only to skin cancer as the most frequently diagnosed cancer in men with an estimated 220,800 new cases and 27,540 deaths in the United States in 2015 alone. Worldwide PCa is expected to grow to 1.7 million new cases and 499,000 deaths by 2030 due to the aging population. Following PCa diagnosis, treatment options are usually limited to surgery, radiotherapy or active surveillance, where no immediate therapeutic treatment occurs.FDA clearance was granted following completion of the SpaceOAR System prospective, multicenter, randomized clinical trial. SpaceOAR patients experienced a significant reduction in rectal radiation dose and severity of late rectal toxicity when compared to control patients who did not receive SpaceOAR hydrogel. The full pivotal clinical trial results have been submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal and are expected to be published later this year.The SpaceOAR System is also CE marked and TGA approved.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiation Therapy | August 16, 2019 Drug Accelerates Blood System’s Recovery After Radiation, Chemotherapy A drug developed by UCLA physician-scientists and chemists speeds up the regeneration of mouse and human blood stem… read more The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.

Vaupel legislation could create healthcare jobs in Michigan

first_img01Dec Vaupel legislation could create healthcare jobs in Michigan Categories: Vaupel News The House Committee on Health Policy today approved a bill sponsored by state Rep. Hank Vaupel to establish a licensure framework for anesthesiologist assistants (AAs) in Michigan. This bill ensures that those working on an anesthesia care team meet certain minimum standards.“I believe that the addition of these licensures may attract more individuals to Michigan as well as bring jobs to our state,” said Vaupel, R-Fowlerville.AAs are non-physician, graduate level educated individuals who work under the supervision of an anesthesiologist as part of anesthesia care team. Several other states have licensed anesthesiologist assistants including: Missouri, Florida, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Ohio, Georgia, New Mexico, Colorado, Indiana, and Oklahoma.Licensure could result in the creation of new programs at our state universities and medical schools. Currently only 11 universities offer accredited AA programs; none of them are located in Michigan.House Bill 5507 now heads to the House floor for further consideration.###last_img read more

Rep Allor highlights legislative Spring Cleaning

first_img Categories: Allor News 03May Rep. Allor highlights legislative ‘Spring Cleaning’ State Rep. Sue Allor of Wolverine today testified before the House Oversight Committee in support of her plan to repeal an unnecessary law from the books. House Bill 5892 would remove an outdated section of law relating to youth conservation and rehabilitation camps in Michigan.During the 1950’s and 60’s, youth conservation and rehabilitation camps were designed to rehabilitate youth offenders by requiring them to participate in a boot camp experience or conservation projects as means of corrections. House Bill 5892 removes any references to these camps because the state currently has none in operation.“In many instances, laws change as the times do,” Allor said. “When we have references to things that are virtually inapplicable because of how we operate currently, we need to go back and wipe out those references. It’s about working for what people demand – a clean, efficient form of government.”House Bill 5892 remains in the House Oversight Committee for further consideration.Photo Information: State Rep.
