GALLIANO, La., May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- As the EPA demands that BP find a "less toxic" dispersal agent for oil in the Gulf, Amira EET has scientists in place along the Gulf Coast preparing to supply BP with a super strain of naturally-occurring oxygen-producing microbes that quickly break down oil, do not introduce toxins into the water, and produce only food chain nutrients. The product, called Arch-Microbes, has already been proven as a viable alternative to toxic dispersants, cleaning spills without destruction of the environment. It is significantly more active than other microbial products on the market, providing fast, large-scale clean-up for oil, toxins and dispersants alike. While authorities take time to consider how they can deploy technologies like this to the oil onslaught in the wetlands and ocean, Amira EET is offering quantities of its product for ... (more)

Moneyball, Big Data, The Internet of Things and Enterprise Mobility

"In business, economics and other fields decisions will increasingly be based on data and analysis rather than on experience and intuition...we can start being a lot more scientific," predicts Professor Erik Brynjolfsson, from MIT's Sloan School of Management in a New York Times article The Age of Big Data, February 12, 2012.  This is the "Moneyball" approach to business.  Use the data, massive volumes of data, to find the truth, rather than lean on intuition.  In the past this was possible, but the long time frames required to find answers made it impractical for real-time decision making. Just like in the movie Moneyball, large volumes of data hide truths that are not easily apparent without in-depth analysis.  These truths can lead us to competitive advantages, increased productivity, efficiencies and completely new and different ways of conducting business.  "Data...

NRK media day – Michael T. Jones of Google

I am at the Norwegian national broadcasting company’s meeting. 1,500 people from all sides of the company. The day opens with someone who seems to be fulfilling the role of jester — a woman dressed in a flamboyantly orange dress, eliciting laughs and applause, including by lifting her skirts and sticking Michael T. Jones’ head into her bosom. (Jones, Google’s Chief Technology Advocate, is there as the morning keynoter). The comedian introduced a woman who seemed to deliver a poem — the morning has been in Norwegian so far — and now, after offering Jones another head boob, the morning begins. In other words, so far just another boring American-style conference. NOTE: Live-blogging. Getting things wrong. Missing points. Omitting key information. Introducing artificial choppiness. Over-emphasizing small matters. Paraphrasing badly. Not running a spellpchecker. Manglin... (more)
