You will appreciate the quote below:

“When you do a study, not only do you need to identify the adverse effects, but you need to determine the exposure to these conditions. If a person works a 40 hrs week and he commutes by public transport we can say that this person will wear a mask on average for 45 hrs per week. This doesn’t take into account all the other public places the person needs to wear a mask, such as the groceries or restaurants. So let’s assume the average North American is forced to wear a mask for 50 hrs per week. How do we evaluate the health hazards of a 30% oxygen impairment for 50 hrs per week over a 4 to 6 months period or more?” – G. V.

The above is good to know because the podcast feed is different from the regular rss. Thus, I encourage you to also subscribe to the Perceptive Readers podcast feed via iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, Iheart and more!

MicroStrategy HyperIntelligence in your Enterprise

This is a MicroStrategy featured software 2019. This article was originally posted in January 2019.

MicroStrategy 2019 HyperIntelligence in Enterprise Analytics

The MicroStrategy team of professionals with their state of the software have made it their mission, if you will, to help you understand all your resource data results. What is working, and the catalyst of why it works, so you can continue to do more of what is making your business a success.

You will find of interest that all the features and functionality in this programs’s purpose is to make analytics usage simpler to use in most work environments. You will see what I mean in their video topic: Introducing MicroStrategy HyperIntelligence.

Make this important assessment of your organization.

They state: “Up until now, only about 30% of any given organization has access to the information it needs to make important decisions.”
You may come to the conclusion your office ’s percentage is even higher. And what a dilemma would cause over time! Imagine telling a company or client you have not accomplished a designated important threshold for a task to be complete; and you actual have completed the assignment with a few percent over the request. All because you did not have the functionality in place to streamline your process and data collection in place to give you a report so easy to read, someone new to your organization can be brought up to speed faster than before in their training and orientation.

Like they state: That’s all about to change.

Introducing MicroStrategy HyperIntelligence

This video answers questions and provides examples in this software’s 2019 HyperIntelligence benefits for your Enterprise Analytics.

Scrivener Still Writing and Improving

Getting to Know The Scrivener Writing Software

The Fall is often a time of completion. Where people want to relax, spend time with family, have fun, and to feel as good about the year’s efforts and successes; especially in their occupations and professions in the western world of providing goods and services. During this time, Philanthropic projects also bring a sense of a job well done!

Well, in one man’s opinion, Scrivener is a software I have found to be worth the cost for goods & services in whatever field or occupation that a lot of writing is involved. It will save you on time, and as one author, Michael La Ronn, states (paraphrase): Scrivener allows authors and writers to get out of their own way.

I found this to be the case over the past year (s). Allow me to explain.

A Windows User of the Scrivener Writing Software

Back in the second quarter of 2012, I purchased Scrivener for Windows and placed it on my Windows 7 laptop. I absolutely got a kick out of using the software. Even with the Scrivener Writing Software for windows not having all the features of the Mac version of the software, I was more than satisfied with the abundance of features all the same. Yes, more features than most people would even inquire about. But they are there for when you need the right touch for this or that research paper you students are writing.

Everything just plain worked. Until… Read on

A Linux User with the Scrivener Writing Software

A couple of years ago, it became helpful for me to use the Linux system OS, so I stopped using Windows 10 and moved to several different linux distribution flavors.

However, along the way, Scrivener did not always function well with the Wine program.

Wine (originally an acronym for “Wine Is Not an Emulator”) is a compatibility layer capable of running Windows applications on several POSIX-compliant operating systems, such as Linux, macOS, & BSD. Instead of simulating internal Windows logic like a virtual machine or emulator, Wine translates Windows API calls into POSIX calls on-the-fly, eliminating the performance and memory penalties of other methods and allowing you to cleanly integrate Windows applications into your desktop.

After losing some of my newer writings and research by data corruption, I made the decision to stop using the Scrivener Writing Software with the Linux systems and the Wine program.

Writing became increasingly harder without the Scrivener Writing Software

Don’t get me wrong. Let me start by saying, it was not “Writer’s Block” that made it harder for me to write. It was harder because I had truly become reliant on the following tasks Scrivener makes so much easier and gives a sense of satisfaction that you have your bases covered!

  • Organization
  • Research Gathering
  • Research Compiling
  • Yes, even proof-reading

The above are just some of the benefits Scrivener gives far beyond common word processors.

A Year without the Scrivener Writing Software

After a year without using Scrivener daily, as was the routine before, I found myself storing more and more of my thoughts, poetry, and ideas in the universe of the mind; so to speak; unless I was ready to write an article that would be published the same 24-48 hours of me developing the online draft.
Oh how I miss those days of just writing a paragraph or two about this awesome (corny for some) joke or some serious thought-provoking subject Perceptive Readers would enjoy hearing and talking about. I had used Scrivener for everything except to make me a cup of coffee!

The Return to Scrivener 3
After a year, it was time to return to the software that helps me with storing my mind’s universe of thoughts and ideas! Chuckle, I often feel our minds (My father talked about this all the time) can produce cluster of galaxies in thoughts and abilities. However, as we get physically older (chuckle) it seems we just have to stay in the Milky Way Galaxy of storage space. This is why it is for us up in years to write down these thoughts when we get them.
And hopefully store them in a private (secure) way until you are ready to share these creations with the world; if this be your wish.
It was time to purchase the Scrivener 3 writing software for MAC!

That’s my experience. Feel Free to share yours!

Is 5G Wireless Safe Technology in your Home

Is 5G Wireless Safe Technology in your Home?

You Perceptive Readers will find this 5G Wireless Safe technology an important subject to talk about over coffee. Yes, the following information is to provide thoughts you may or may not have considered at this time.
Is 5G Wireless Safe Technology in your Home?

Think about the children. This is a thought adults keep in mind when it comes to anything, and we of humanity do mean anything that can affect a child adversely. The smallest of us can’t speak for themselves, and so the parents and one’s in positions of trust have a wonderful responsibility to take perfect care of them.

Didn’t that statement just make you feel good inside? It is also a sobering thought as well.
Is 5G wireless safe for children to be around?

The (IoT) Internet of things will continue to take the already billions of connected devices to hundreds of billions with 5G capable devices. That’s if the 5G implementation of telecom and corporate companies go as planned.

The question people are still asking, “Is this powerful technology safe for children?” Is it safe for humans to have our home’s and neighborhoods air space saturated with these waves transmitting in all these (IoT) devices, along with our phones?
A Statement from Frank Clegg on 5G

After viewing the video below by Frank Clegg, I made this statement on my Minds Product of Culture channel to the subscribers:

Me: Take it from someone who was certified in multi-channel communications decades ago. Though I have a deep appreciation for technology, my experience and knowledge gives creditable red flags and great caution with the way they are talking about the implementation of 5G. Like energy plants having to be shielded with alot of safe guards, researchers may find 5G technology is in the same RISK category that requires such (insulation) protections.

Frank Clegg on 5G Wireless Tech

Mr, Frank Clegg – Former President of Microsoft Canada
Technologies Mission is to enhance our quality of life.

It aids in building, feeding, and medically advanced healing research as never before. The theme parks and recreational escapees we travel to are the majority of the time provided by the safe usage of technology.

We may find 5G wireless technology is also like driving a race car. Though the vehicle can travel at great speeds, going at those highspeeds is not allowed everywhere for the public’s safety.
We may also find 5G wireless technology a catch twenty- two situation catch 22.

Technology is a wonderful tool. Let us be always aware it is also a powerful tool that should be respected.
Why does something work the way it does?
Do I need special garments (clothing) and training to use such tools?

Becoming knowledgeable for ourselves in the benefits and risk of these technologies will help us to make better decisions. The children of humanity will also thank us for it. These precious minds are worth the necessary research.
My experience, Mr. Frank Clegg words on this 5G technology topic should not be hastily ignored.

With new software programs being released and updated monthly, the professional may feel the need to implement a solution due to the intense marketing of a product.

Spiceworks Relevant Advisers of Information Technology

The year was 2006. A company named Spiceworks held up its creation to the public. This was an answer to many IT Advisers professionals’ dreams. The company designed and created a free network-monitoring tool. Did I mention this tool is free?

This company not only created a valuable software package for small to medium size businesses, moreover, they instituted an online community structure for support.

Even though the ever-increasing capabilities of this network management software could be expounded upon, the scope of this article provides information about the Spiceworks online community.

The majority of the users in the “Spiceworks Community” share a common background of knowledge and application in the information technology field. These bright administrators range from introductory to experts. Why is such an online community helpful? Contrary to popular beliefs, your information technology professional does not know everything. (Coffee cups have just dropped around the world.)

Here is where the beauty of this online community comes in. The beginners can learn from the seasoned users of the network monitoring software. If you add the years of experience for the IT professionals in the Spiceworks Community, the years would number into the millions. How can this be? Here is the answer. The noteworthy achievement of having more than a million professionals to use the software was accomplished in the second quarter of the year 2010. Large quantities of these users/ advisers have over a decade of experience; hence, you can do the math.

The Spiceworks Community is not limited to giving advice just for its product. This online community is subdivided into groups the user can join. These groups help you to narrow down subjects that are of high concern to you and your job. You are able to subscribe, create discussions, and receive e-mail notifications when someone posts in the groups.

Notice just a few of the interesting subjects mentioned in the forums:
Do you have questions about Windows operating systems?  Then the “Windows” IT category would be the one for you. See list of today’s popular IT categories:

SECURITY- There are professional advisers in here that will help you to understand the layering principles of security.

SOFTWARE-  What’s out there. How you  implement  and troubleshoot your choices.

STORAGE AND BACKUPS- This is the first thing everyone needs to have in places but there are many choices. Peruse the many suggestions here.

VIRTUALIZATION- No longer for enterprise level businesses only, understand what virtualization is and why it is an important  solution for small business too.

CLOUD- People realize everything is stored on servers throughout the world’s Internet. Understand the different components and services people are using to be a part of the all encompassing Internet named “Cloud”.

Ratings and Reviews

Do you need research and ratings on hardware, software, or other information technology services? Then you will want to search through the “Ratings and Reviews” section of the community.

Hey, as an IT guru, do you just want to share how you have solved the complexities of the universe? The “Water Cooler” group would be the one for you. This group’s topics alone continue to grow exponentially. Good thing the universe is infinite!

SpiceWorld and SpiceCorps

This online community has implemented other avenues for the IT professionals to meet in one or two ways.

First, there are the “SpiceWorld” events they have each year. All in this online community are encouraged to attend. An article could be written alone about this event. The workshops, breakout sessions, and vision of the company are shared in a spirit of comradely. Such a setting is conducive to learning.

Additionally, there are localized area groups called “SpiceCorps.” They discuss general issues related to information technology in a relaxed atmosphere.

This online community has evolved in such a way that it is not viewed as a byproduct of the Spiceworks network management software, but an intricate part of a valuable service.

In closing, the Spiceworks online community is designed to help anyone to become knowledgeable and efficient in their jobs
