Randy Carlson Of Los Alamos Remembers Apollo 11

Courtesy/Randy Carlson By RANDY CARLSONLos AlamosToday, July 16 is the 50th anniversary of man going to the moon. It so happens that I was there that morning and witnessed the Saturn V launch.More recently those memories returned having seen myself in the recent “Apollo 11” movie. The movie uses a lot of footage not seen before and, to my amazement, there I was at the 18-minute mark into the movie. Although I was in the US Air Force back in 1969, I had been invited to the Apollo 11 launch and attended as part of the VIP Press Corps. It so happens that before entering the Air Force, I was working at the NASA Langley, Va., complex (as in the movie “Hidden Figures”) in the Flight Instrumentation Division. Fifty years ago I was interviewed after the Saturn V launch by my hometown paper ‘The Observer’ of Smithfield, RI. Here is a copy of that article:last_img read more

first_img De Ligt joined Juve this week from Ajax in a deal worth around 75 million euros and requested that his contract with the club included a 150 million euros release clause.  However, after June 2022, Juve wouldn’t be able to do anything if there was a suitor willing to pay as much as 150 million.  IN SPORT.ES De Ligt will earn a base of 7.5 million euros per season, with the possibility of earning as much as 12 million based on a number of incentives and bonuses.

Erik Lamela insists Spurs aren’t lacking confidence despite dismal run

We still believe in each other in this team. That’s why we always fight until the end of the season.”People are thinking like this. But inside the dressing room, I can tell you it’s not like this. We believe in this team.“It’s time to win again. The way we played against Inter will help a lot but we have confidence in ourselves.”4 Mauricio Pochettino’s men have lost three in a rowCredit: GettyPochettino’s men led through Christian Eriksen’s deflected 53rd-minute strike until Mauro Icardi levelled with a spectacular 20-yard volley in the 85th minute.Matias Vecino then heading their winner in the second minute of stoppage time.Winger Lamela, 26, said: “We’re disappointed because we were winning and to lose like this in the last ten minutes is bad.”It’s bad for us because we came here to win and in the end we didn’t get the points, so very disappointed.

Web Email Market: An Overview

first_imgWebmail.us has just released the fourth generationof its Web Email platform, replacing its legacy software with an AJAX framework. They’repromising their users “a markedly faster, better performing experience” with its new Ajaxversion. Webmail.us provides email hosting services to more than 23,000 small-mediumbusinesses and is one of a number of smaller, niche companies in the Web emailmarket.Now you’d think the giants – Microsoft, Google and Yahoo – would be totally dominantin this market and so there’d be little chance for the little guys? Hotmail/Windows LiveMail, Gmail and Yahoo! Mail all have huge user bases. But there are (as always) ways forthe smaller companies to compete. Indeed it’s comparable to the Personalized StartPage space, where small companies like Pageflakes and Netvibes are finding profitable niche markets –despite the presence of the big portals with similar products.So in this post, let’s take a high-level look at the Web Email market. My thanks to Webmail.us CEO Pat Matthews for talking to me about this.The consumermarket is fairly clear cut and dominated by Yahoo and Microsoft in particular (Google’sGmail is competitive too of course, but more on that below). In terms of the enterprise and small business market, Pat said that most organizations are running some sort of email serverto provide employees with business email. Microsoft Exchange is the 800 pound gorilla inthis market and there isn’t a clear #2. However, Pat noted that competition on the risefor MS Exchange – especially in open source and the service provider markets.Here then is a list of some of the companies in the Web email space:ZimbraZimbra is getting a lot of buzz and some real tractionin the marketplace. Their product is a lot more than just email – it is essentially amini-suite of Web Office products. The Zimbra Collaboration Suite hasemail, contacts, group calendaring, word processing and spreadsheets. The latter two werejust added this week, as part of thelaunch of Zimbra Collaboration Suite (ZCS) 4.0.In my full review of Zimbraback in April, I was impressed that Zimbra is packed full of features. They have mashupsand things like “Search Builder” and an RSS reader.Zimbra has an open source component to their business model, whereby the software isopen sourced and they generate revenue by supporting deployments of the open sourcesoftware platform – as well as a network edition. Zimbra may be a good alternative toExchange for businesses that want desktop software, but don’t want to pay the high licensing feesassociated with Exchange.Webmail.usWebmail.us differentiates itself from Exchange andZimbra by being a 100% hosted email model. Pat told me their customers prefer tooutsource the hardware, software and security services (anti-spam, anti-virus, etc.). Inthe words of Pat, their customers “want to get rid of the software model altogether.”But how then does Webmail.us differentiate itself from the bigco WebEmail services, not to mention web hosts and ISPs? Pat said there are three“philosophical ways” in which Webmail.us is different from the likes of Gmail andYahoo:“1) email hosting is all we do;2) there is a large service component to our business; and3) our services are subscription based as opposed to advertising support (we’recompletely ad-free).”GmailGmail is my personal favoriteWeb email product, because of its innovative and Web-native features – such as search and“conversation view”. Admittedly Gmail has more of a techie following than any of theother service providers, so in that respect it’s struggled to gain mainstream adoption –in comparison to Hotmail or Yahoo Mail.Earlier this year Google announced a beta Enterprise service, unimaginatively named ‘Gmail for your domain’. It is basically Gmailoffered as a back-end service and Google provides all the required hardware and software.Each enterprise end-user gets 2 gigabytes of storage, the same as consumer users of Gmailcurrently. Plus there’s access to Google Talk (VoIP/chat), Google Calendar and a ControlPanel to manage accounts.SproutitSproutit is a startup that offers business software tosmall businesses. Sproutit has an interesting product called Mailroom, which is a hostedemail management service. Where Mailroom is different is that it enables you to “organizeyour email and suggest replies to save you time and keep you better in touch with yourcustomers.” So it helps companies use email to keep track of sales leads and customercommunications, which makes it as much a CRM tool as an email hosting service.Yahoo Mail The new Ajax version of Yahoo Mail is currently in beta. Like all the other Ajaxwebmail products, this enables it to mimic the functionality of a traditional desktopemail app. Indeed Yahoo Mail sticks to the traditional email interface, but it has someinnovative features too – such as integrating RSS. More PIM features are coming soon, asrevealed in my recentinterview with Yahoo’s Bradley Horowitz (VP of Product Strategy) and Caterina Fake(leader of the Technology Development Group). Along with Hotmail, Yahoo Mail has a huge user base –well over 200 Million unique users.Hotmail / Windows Live MailWindows Live Mail is the replacement for Hotmail, but is still in beta and onlyavailable in certain countries right now. According to NiallKennedy’s review back in November, it has been written from the ground-up toreplicate a desktop application look and feel. It has Ajax, of course, and a similar userinterface to Outlook. It is a three-column view and has access to calendar, contacts, andyour “Today” view. Formerly code-named ‘Kahuna’, Windows Live Mail will replace Hotmail once it iscomplete.Hotmail, one of the original webmail products, was launched in ’96 and acquired byMicrosoft in ’97. But its day has past.SummaryCNET recently did a comparison of thebigcos web email apps – concluding that Gmail is the best in terms of functionality. Iagree, but would add that both Yahoo and Microsoft are catching up fast! Gmail has to beacknowledged though as the product that pushed Web email into the 21st century, with itsAjax interface and large storage capacity. Gmail basically forced the hand of Yahoo andMicrosoft to follow suit with their own Ajax Web mail products.In terms of the small companies battling for a niche in the Web email ecosystem,Zimbra, Webmail.us, Sproutit – and I’m sure many others – all have their place. While thebigcos will continue to dominate the consumer market, none of them yet have a compellingWeb email product for the enterprise or small business market – so that’s where the likesof Zimbra and webmail.us will shine.

Charles Darwin Does Retail

first_imgTell me what you think.#IamIntel. It’s not Armageddon. Certainly not the apocalypse.But it is a time of most rapid, ever-accelerating, give-no-mercy evolution.Welcome to retailing 2018. But let’s pause for a moment. Something significant is clearly afoot.It may not be Armageddon, but we ignore at our peril the store closures, the empty malls, and the struggling brands.So what is it?Let me offer a metaphor for retailing today:Accelerated – and accelerating — evolution. Merciless Darwinian natural selection.No species is ever unchanging. But the pace of noticeable change within most species is slow. Almost invisible. Measured in thousands of years.Likewise, no industry is ever unchanging. And the pace of noticeable change for retail and consumer goods has been – certainly through the first decade of this century – relatively gradual. Even gentle.Yes, e-commerce showed up, but it was no more than a store’s equivalence in revenue. (And then, it really only hit the music and book stores.) Yes, the smartphone showed up, but show-rooming wasn’t all it was cracked up to be.Yes, the overall industry climate was changing. But it was manageable.Certainly not broke. And thus, not worth fixing. A number of colleagues (we’re looking at you with thanks, Greg Buzek of IHL) have made clear that when it comes to the Retail Armageddon-Apocalypse – well, it just ain’t so.While 2017 US store closures did reach record levels, the truth of the matter is that there was an overall net gain in open stores last year. And a 5.5% year-on-year jump in Holiday 2017 revenue – well above the National Retail Federation’s forecast of 3.6% to 4% for the season – is anything but apocalyptic.In fact, 2017 brought the best year-on-year Holiday growth since 2010’s positive bounce from the financial crisis.center_img Like most of you, I subscribe to a number of industry news and analyst services.One in particular appears dead-set on maintaining its click-rate with sky-is-falling reports of a USA “Retail Armageddon.”A recent 2018 piece of wide-eyed anxiety noted – accurately – that stores are continuing to close at a record pace across the nation.Which, the author concluded – cue the screeching of bats and dark organ music – could mean that the retail apocalypse is worse than previously thought.Oh my.Deep sigh. No longer.We in retail are now in a time like when the meteors began crashing around the dinosaurs.Boom! Crash! Prime! Go! Google Home and Alipay! AI and autonomous stores!   Pow!It’s big-time natural selection time.Some will survive and thrive by evolving to unified commerce and new store concepts and new services and new revenue streams.Some will survive and thrive by deepening their data-driven understanding of shopper needs and wants, and creating new, rich, value-add relationships with shoppers.And some will not survive.But run in circles and howl in confusion, stretching too-short arms toward the skies.last_img read more
