Are you sick of all the cords and bulky add-ons you have to deal with when purchasing a PC? I was and that's why I decided it was time to go for style, quality and longevity. Style, Quality and longevity are how I describe my Apple iMac 27 inch All-In-One Desktop to those who will listen. I switched to Mac last year and I have not looked back! Also, I have not had any issues as I did with all my window based PC's.
I can not say enough about the Apple iMac 27 inch I purchased, seriously. It is just absolutely beautiful. The configuration of the iMac I purchased was a bit pricey, but worth every penny. I Built on the 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5, 4GB, 1TB Serial ATA Drive, ATI Radeon HD 5750 1GB GDDR5 SDRAM, Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad, Magic Mouse + Magic Trackpad. Even though this is not the very high-end of the iMac, it's just perfect for me.
What I love about my iMac is that it's a brilliant machine right out of the box. I have yet to put on a PC and have it work right out of the box. In my experience, you have to do 9 million things to get your PC to work the way you want it to work. That alone is worth looking at the iMac All-In-One Desktop.
The Apple iMac 27 inch All-In-One Desktop has a better design, better features and better performance than previous generations. You really can not go wrong with this jewel currently available by Apple.

When a person has band bariatric surgery it is considered a weight loss surgery. These surgeries are used to help reduce the size of your stomach. A bariatric surgeon can accomplish this in two different ways. It can be done either with adjustable gastric band (AGB) or vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG). Either of these two surgeries are accomplished by using a belt to separate part of your stomach into a smaller pouch.
Adjustable gastric band
With this bariatric surgery it is performed by laparoscopic surgery, which is when the surgery is done using a small camera that can be used to visualize the surgical area and is minimally invasive surgery. It is frequently referred to as lap-band surgery. The bariatric surgeon will make two or three small incisions in your abdominal area. The gastric band is then threaded through one of the incisions and wrapped around the top of your stomach. It is then tightened to create a small food pouch. These band are expandable so any adjustments that need to be made are done by filling the band with saline. It is done by injecting the saline solution into a port that the bariatric surgeon left during the surgery. The port is usually anchored just below the skin to the muscles in your diaphragm.
Vertical banded gastroplasty
This surgery uses a bariatric band in conjuction with surgical staples. A hole is cut into your stomach with the bariatric band being placed through this hole. It is then wrapped around the outside of your stomach to help slow down digesting by restricting the size of the exit which food passes through. After the bariatric surgeon has the band in place the section above the band is separated from the rest of your stomach using a row of surgical staples. The pouch that results from the separation hold between one and two of food. By combining the reduced size of usable stomach and the gastric band you will often feel satisfied on less food for a protracted length of time. This type of surgery is often referred to as stomach stapling.
Either band band surgery has risks associated with the surgery. You can have post-operative infection and pain, which are the most common complaints heard. With poor diet choices and reduced consumption of food could also lead to dehydration and malnutrition. Sometimes the bands can slip, causing pain and internal damage in rare cases. These slippages will often require corrective surgery. Patients who have either surgery are asked to see the procedure as a tool to help them lose weight but not the solution.

In the data analytics, it is not always easy to identify the appropriate tool for the kind of analytics. In most cases the decision would boil down to the cost of investment. Since that is the case, then it would imply that any tool must have some stand out features in order to justify the price. In simple words, the question always boils down to, “What is the value addition for our customers?”.
Since that is a valid question, we are going to explore the Top 3 differentiating features of the Audit Command Language, which set it apart from its competition, like SAS, MS EXCEL etc.
1. ACL Audit Command Language is GUI Based
Yes, it is hard to imagine how complex operations can be performed using a GUI, but the creators of this tool have given the capability that all actions that are performed using the GUI, are also captured with supporting scripts in the logs. As a result, the tool has a very small learning curve for the both the GUI operations and scripting.
See how to set up an ACL project in the vide below:
See how to leverage the GUI in the ACL tool to your advantage,
2. Data can be refreshed from the source file directly
The second unique feature is that the tool allows us to simply, update the raw data file to reflect any changes in the tables that are imported into any Audit Command Language. This saves time and effort especially, if the data set is very large. It can take considerable time to import a heavy data file again as opposed to simply making any minor updates to the raw file itself and updating the file from source. See the below video demonstration:
3. Work Spaces
ACL Audit Command Language provides this truly differentiating features called the ‘Work Spaces’. These act like smaller siblings of the scripting features in the tool. The work spaces essentially, provide the scripts a reusability. User can simply define the kinds of fields they want from certain raw tables and simply activate these work spaces in the scripts to enable them quickly at any time. See below, how to use the work space:
Other than, MS SQL server and MS Excel, which are available in most places. Audit Command Language does offer some extra value for money as compared most of the available tools in the market for most basic types of analytics needs. It can be said that audit command language is a baseline for tools in the data analytics industry

This team is based in Chicago, Illinois. It is one of the oldest teams of NHL. It was founded in the year 1926, while National Hockey League was founded in 1917. It belongs to the Western Conference, Central Division. Definitely, a team from such a huge city has millions of fans in the U.S.A. and in the rest of the world. All of them have great hopes for such team. Nevertheless, the previous story of “Blackhawks” does not have too many Stanley Cup wins. The team won the main title 3 times. The last was dated in the season 1960-1961. Afterwards, Chicago did not know the pleasure of such victory.
Nevertheless, everything has changed since the year 2008, when Joel Quenneville was appointed as a new head coach of the team. He in collaboration with general manager Stan Bowmen and other coaches led the Blackhawks to an amazing record for the modern hockey. The team won 3 more Cups in the course of some 6 years!
Such achievement was not a surprise in far past. Nonetheless, in comparison to previous times now we have many teams that are quite equal. Therefore, even one title in 10 years may be referred to a real success.
When talking about Chicago before the era of Bowmen and Quenneville, the results were awful. The last time the team reached the stage of play-offs was in the season 2001-2002. However, after changes in coaching stuff, the team lived through a real rebirth.
The coach factor did a great deal. The innovations of Quenneville brought splendid results. Thanks to excellent selective work of Bowmen, the team obtained young and perspective players, as well as experienced ones. The rookies Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews turned into real world-class leaders, who lead their national teams. Nevertheless, they became real stars in Chicago.
In strong collaboration of coaching stuff and players, the team from Illinois set a novice record of the modern hockey and it can be called a real “miracle on the ice”. It can be compared with that amazing US Olympic hockey team that won golden medals in the year 1980. That was a real miracle, because a team of teenagers from different universities and colleges conquered the experienced monsters of world hockey.
Something similar was done by the Blackhawks. The first success of their “hat-trick” came in the season 2009-2010. Quenneville needed only 3 seasons to reach his first trophy. Afterwards, the team from the United Center (the main arena of the team) was taken seriously by the opponents. Notwithstanding, the opponents were not able to stop Hawks in seasons 2012-2013 and 2014-2015.
In respect of modern tendencies of North American hockey, such success is almost impossible. However, the guys from Chicago made it quite possible. How could it happen? Some would say that this is a long and hard labor of each member of the team. The others would say that this is pure luck. However, the case of “luck” would hardly work for three times in six years. Probably, both thoughts should be united.
It is fair enough that the Blackhawks reached such success. Many players of the team have already won multiple personal awards for the regular seasons and play-offs games. Stan Bowmen is probably the best general manager of the last decade. The genius of Joel Quenneville speaks for himself. Chicago regularly reaches the stage of play-offs, has already won 3 Stanley Cups and shows impressive hockey each season. It is not surprising that the he was included to the coach team for the upcoming Cup of Canada, which is the most prestigious hockey tournament of all times.
During the last season, the Blackhawks could not win the Cup. However, on the average, they win this trophy once per two years. Consequently, the new 2016-2017 season is probably another successful year for them. Thus, we may talk about novel record of 4 wins in 8 years.

The increase in popularity of the home espresso makers has resulted in an increase in the number of espresso maker companies. This has resulted in a competitive field full of legitimate products, less superior ones together with online scams in equal measure. The flooded espresso maker market, just like any other market has thus become complicated thus proving difficult for a newbie to choose the right product. Among the surest ways of landing on the most appropriate product is reading through the espresso maker reviews. Below are some of the espresso machines that I consider the best in the market.
The best espresso maker for the home
Breville BES870XL Barista Express
An important characteristic that enables me to justify that this is among the best products in the market is the freshness of the espresso it makes. Coming with important features such as the integrated burr grinder that is credited for the freshness, the machine is very easy to use. Not only can the machine make the freshest espresso but also will it give you the best cappuccino and lattes results.
Important features include an in-built Proportional-Integral-Derivative for control of temperature, sturdy construction with no flimsy feel, adjustable controls together with infusion gauge among others.
A Semi-Automatic Machine You Would Love
Rancilio Silvia HSD-SILVIA
Coming with attractive and well polished steel, the unit’s design suits both the amateurs and professionals alike. It features a long-lasting design that has proven to be a maker of among the most impressive and mouth-watering flavored espresso. Its products greatly rival the beverages you will get in coffee shops. The heating elements are easy to remove, has three easy-to-use buttons for hot water, steaming and brewing, high quality construction together with a number of commercial grade quality components.
Some of the features that trigger me to love the unit more and more include the commercial group head responsible for heat stability thus a premium extraction is achieved. Others are the 58mm portafilter together with the 12-ounce brass boiler for excellent steaming with relatively fast recovery time.
The Best among the Cheap
De’Longhi EC155 Espresso and Cappuccino Maker
This is a package of impressive espresso making features at a very affordable price. The unit is simple to operate and is credited for its compatibility with either pods or fresh grounds. The result is a great tasting espresso, latte or cappuccino that you would always want to make. The great frothing together with its self-priming features are some of the features I consider best and unique within its price range. The styling features a small, modern attractive footprint and functionality impressive with the capability of pulling eight consecutive shots within a relatively short time frame.
These are some of the espresso makers that I would always recommend to a friend. A more detailed check and reading of the espresso maker reviews will always help you choose the best of products.

Businesses worldwide are quickly learning the value of using YouTube videos. Not only do videos entertain, they inform and put a company's brand name out there for all to see.
Short videos are becoming more popular, but people still like to go to YouTube for all the site has to offer. Creating longer videos is one of the main reasons people use YouTube; getting prime exposure is another.
Businesses create videos in order to drive traffic to their website or blog. Promoting these videos is an essential part of the marketing strategy.
Videos should be entertaining and informative at the same time. Their purpose is to get people to a website and make a purchase. The goal of any business is making a profit; videos help businesses reach this goal faster.
Before you can market your videos, you will need to create a YouTube Business account. The steps to create this account may look daunting, but they are easy if you follow a few steps first.
This first article in the series will guide you through the processes needed to get your YouTube Business account up and running.
How To Create A YouTube Account
Creating a YouTube account is easy if you already have a Google+ page. If you do not have a Google+ page, YouTube will create one for you. However, you must have a Google account in order to create any YouTube account. With that said, here are the two ways YouTube channels are created:
1. Use Your Personal Google+ Page
* Log onto the Google+ page that you want associated with your YouTube account. From there, go to YouTube.
* In the top right corner on the YouTube page, click on the drop-down thumbnail.
* Next, click on the 'OK' button on this "Create a channel for …" page.
* YouTube has its own tutorial that will help you get your channel all set up. Follow their simple steps to completion.
2. Creating A YouTube Account Without Google+
It takes longer to create a YouTube account if you do not have a Google+ page, but it is really no harder than with one. You simply create another YouTube account for your brand, and YouTube creates your Google+ page.
If you are on YouTube then it's assumed you have a regular Google account. These steps will help you create your YouTube business channel:
* In the upper right corner of your Facebook page is a round, blue icon. Click on it.
* Next to the "Creator Studio" button you will see a gear icon; click on this icon. This allows you to create a new channel, or see all your existing ones.
* Choose to 'create a new channel' and you will be asked to provide a bit more information.
* Give your company name and figure out which category you want to put it in.
* Note that there is a phrase on this page about your channel coming with a Google+ page.
* Click on 'agree to page terms,' then click done.
* That's it! You've created a new channel, complete with a Google+ page. The YouTube tutorials will help you understand the way things work. To find all your channels, simply click on the round, blue image on the top right corner of your YouTube page.
Remember, YouTube is an awesome source of traffic to your website. Get started making short, simple videos which you upload to YouTube. Promote the videos in social media, in your articles, in your blog, and in any other way you can think of. Do not just produce one video, try for one video a week at first, and more as you gain experience.
Be on the lookout for the next article in this series about how to get free traffic from YouTube.

Let’s face it; digital technology has changed life as we know it.
I don’t know anyone who isn’t doing digital things in some way.
Digital and social media, thanks to the Internet, have broken borders, how we communicate, and how we deliver information-including the news. Disruption occurs at such a rapid pace these days, that to remain competitive, you always have to be reading the tea leaves. And, that includes digital and social media disruption.
What are the trends you have to keep any eye out for in the year ahead?
- Augmented reality: The very definition of “reality” is already beginning to change. Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla, has suggested that we will live in a world where at some point we will not be able to tell the difference. Augmented reality blends the real world we see every day around us with a supplemental or added reality brought to us by digital technology and GPS. The Pokemon Go craze of last year showed us the future was here with augmented reality. See more augmented reality enter the digital and social media worlds.
- Virtual reality: Virtual reality is a computer-generated, three-dimensional world that can be entered, typically with some kind of device, such as a helmet or goggles. Facebook owns the leading virtual reality company, Oculus, which just had a massive judgment against it to pay $500 million to the game company ZeniMax. Despite that legal situation, virtual reality is big business and corporations are moving quickly to position themselves as the leaders in providing all of us opportunities to enter other realities.
- Live video: I don’t know about you, but I’ve seen a lot more live videos posted on Facebook. Once Facebook Live was introduced in 2016, people young and old were suddenly hitting the “Live” button and all of the sudden I was seeing my friends in their kitchens or on the beach. Look for this to only increase as people get more comfortable just sharing their lives-live-on social media platforms, including the social media giant, Facebook.
- Social media shopping: Platforms such as Facebook and Instagram have done an excellent job of integrating advertisement without impacting the user experience. This integration is going to continue. You’ll see more ads and marketplaces on social media sites as consumers make some of their purchases within these platforms.
- Organic promotion: Organic reach, the type of promotion that brands were able to get to their followers and supporters simply by posting, is continually being throttled by social media platforms. The limiting of brand promotion will only continue as the social media giants, such as Facebook, continue to develop platforms so that users remain longer and longer. Let’s face it. These are businesses. Platforms like Facebook will continue to degrade the ability of brands to promote to supporters without paying a price.

IVR Systems – Features and Benefits
An IVR system, also known as Interactive Voice Response system is an effective, high performance tool, which is fast emerging as a durable platform that enables organizations to stay connected with their customers through DTMF tones as well as voice interactions without any assistance from humans. Simply through the use of keypads, IVR allows businesses to carry out routine outbound notifications and entertain inbound enquiries flawlessly and in an economic manner.
IVR is a highly scalable platform that can be modified as per the business need to integrate with different hardware such as Synway, Keygoe, and Dialogic etc. It is designed to allow a scalability range from 4 to 128 E1's in every setup in addition to facilities like CDR and voice recording. You can increase and decrease the complexity of an IVR system. The system is easy-to-integrate with any third party database, be it an e-commerce payment gateway, banking, telecom, travel, order placement or insurance. An IVR system can also be easily integrated with any speech recognition and Text To Speech (TTS) engines; thus adding to its long list of functionality.
With the help of this highly flexible and user friendly system, it is now possible for organizations to offer customer services even after office hours. By simply using an IVR system, business communication has reached a whole new dimension. IVR systems have enabled smaller firms as well to display enterprise-level performance standards.
Some of the most common uses of an IVR system include outbound notifications such as – payment / appointment reminders, scheme related calling, introduction of new plans to customers. IVR is also useful in collecting information from customers through inbound communication on product delivery, return and refund related calls. These communications can also be made into two-way dialogues for better user experience.
Here are some of the most prominent features of an IVR system –
- It features a very easy to use and simple Graphical System Design Interface
- There is a provision to support a large number of telephone lines both on digital as well as analog platforms. The number can be scaled up or brought down as per the business need with ease.
- IVR offers advanced options of call switching and screening for enhanced user experience
- It is easy to integrate with different databases and therefore, emerges to be a highly flexible system
- One can easily retrieve data from an IVR through the playback option

We are now entering a transitional period where some of this harshness can dissolve and our earth, our bodies and our souls can regenerate towards a new consciousness, a new era.
It will probably take another 5 years for this to complete until the Capricorn Climax in 2020 when Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are all in Capricorn. This is the point at which serious structures can be implemented. In the meantime, we have choices to make – personally and globally, that can transform our world for the better and make us proud to call ourselves human beings.
MUTABLE ENERGIES – THE WINDS OF CHANGE
With multiple planets in mutable signs, 2015 is a year when THINGS CAN BEGIN TO CHANGE, especially things that have been stuck for a very long time.
It's also going to mean more uncertainty. We will have to learn how to improve and how to become more creative and innovative.
Venus and Mars are in alignment many times during this year which means that there will be opportunities for consensus. Venus softens the effect of Mars and desires to bring peace.
There will be the opportunity for opposing factions to come together, for more compassion and tolerance in our world.
With the USA's progressed Sun in Pisces, gradually joining transiting Neptune over the next 3 years, this could mark a significant change in the psyche of America. Instead of being a military superpower, it can become a diplomatic, peace-initiating country setting a powerful example of unity to the rest of the world.
We've been living under a Cardinal influence for the last seven years. The Cardinal signs have a vertical vibration, ordering from the top down.
We are moving into Mable energy which moves laterally, reaching out from side to side.
Flexibility will be vital for survival. Can you be like a tree that is grounded with roots in the ground, but where leaves and branches sway effortlessly in the wind?
JUPITER IN VIRGO
With Jupiter in Virgo in its dismissal from August, material expansion and prosperity can be limited. If you have this placement in your natal chart, you can probably make something out of nothing.
It's very important to think and plan ahead now. Many will continue to have tight finances. Millions will be unemployed and we will be forced to find more meaning in our lives beyond money and earthly riches. A new drive towards selflessness and spirituality will begin to gather speed. Leaders devoted to helping the sick and the poor will emerge.
Young people with a huge purpose will appear on the world stage. For example, at just 17, Malala Yousafzai is the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner as a result of her heroic activism for every child's right to receive an education.
Because Virgo rules health, and especially natural healing, we will find cures for diseases that have been with us for eons. We'll discover that we do not need all the artificial things we have been living with. We can have increased life expectancy and health for many hundreds of years.
Listed are the areas that will likely experience growth during this transit from August 2015 until September 2017:
Healthy eating, raw foods, pure foods, healthy living, healthy thinking
Energy medicine, nutrition, preventive health and wellness
Rejuvenation techniques, plastic surgery and anything involving anti-aging.
Perfection of health techniques eg micro surgery, nano-surgery, non-invasive surgeries, robotics, stem cell transplantation, digital health delivery
Disaster and survival preparedness
3D printing – eg print a house in a day
Software developers, mobile apps, sensors, translation and language services
Micro grid conversion – national grids to micro grids
Digital forensics: retrieving information from devices and networks, tracking down cyber criminals
Animals, especially pet care and cyber pets
Battery longevity increased
Robotics for cleaning
The cleaning industry: cleaning water, cleaning energy, cleaning cells,
Bacteria, infection and our understanding of germs and contagion
Water harvesting ie homes that generate their own water supply extracting water from air. Steel pipes being replaced with air pipes
SATURN IN SAGITTARIUS
With Saturn in Sagittarius, there will be greater freedom around your place of work as well as finding your true vocation. Many people will relocate to a wonderful climate where it's inexpensive to live and work on the internet. Jupiter in Virgo will encourage living with much less but enjoying a more natural and nourishing lifestyle.
Increased knowledge, more exploration, moving away from earth to try to find solutions outside ourselves for our planet
VIRUSES, MENTAL HEALTH
With the square from Saturn to Neptune, we could see the spread of contagious diseases. Neptune does not respect boundaries and in difficult aspect to Saturn, outbreaks could be difficult to contain. Airports may be shut down, people may be afraid to leave the house to go to work or go to buy anything. Chances are cases of Ebola continue to rise.
We can turn this around by focusing on being grateful and appreciating what we do have in our lives and not allowing ourselves to be sucked into irrational fears, phobias or anxieties, many of which are triggered by the mainstream media.
Extremes of weather are pretty: very hot, very cold, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, blizzards, tornadoes and especially water-related weather such such droughts, wildfires, tsunamis, flooding, another large iceberg falling into the sea.
Although they are looking over-inflated and due for imminent correction, but they can continue to grow this year especially while Jupiter is in Leo until August. Once Jupiter changes signals and becomes inconjunct with Saturn in Sagittarius, this could indicate sharp drops.
GOLD AND SILVER
Greater fluctuations – towards the end of the year more significant rises as people see that the economy is still worsening. According to Ray Merriman, Financial Astrologer, if the price goes above $ 1350 the trend will be upwards. If it does not reach $ 1350, be prepared for a downward movement. Expect more deceit, lies, debts, defaults, denials, delusions, manipulations
In all areas, worldwide manipulation will continue: stock markets, foreign exchange, interest rates, commodities, real estate and of course gold.
Banks will continue to be unaccountable: recently five big banks were fined billions regarding foreign exchange rigging, but still no one takes responsibility and they still do not want to be regulated.
In the long run, gold will go up. Do not lose faith and if you have gold, do not be tempted to sell.
PREPARE: Stock up on food, bottled water, dried goods, sanitisers, first-aid kits, medicines, warm clothes, backup power source. Even if there is no emergency, it's good idea to do this now because prices are likely to increase this year.
Take full responsibility for your health and learn as much as you can about it. Study healing, herbs, nutrition and train your mind so that you can keep yourself healthy during these times of transition. Your health will certainly be your wealth in every sense of the word.
Jupiter in Virgo extends to the health of our Mother Earth. She too has gone through tremendous birthing pains with us during this Cardinal Climax. This will be an opportunity to find other ways of finding clean energy without fracking and damaging our planet. Virgo is an ingenious sign and we can use this energy to use advances in science and nanotechnology to provide us with the power that we need.
Focus on connecting with like-minded people and work with the power of prayer. We are going to witness many miracles the more we work together. Things can change in a heartbeat that used to take decades to accomplish.
I'm going to close with some of the words of a famous Libran who had Venus in Virgo, John Lennon, who wrote:
So this is Christmas
What have you done?
Another year over
And a new one just begun ..
And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young.
A very Merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear …
His motto was: THINK PEACE, ACT PEACE, SPREAD PEACE
Let's hope that the world is now ready for his message.
Wishing you all a Happy, Healthy, Loving and Peaceful New Year.
