#SewaInternational appeals for support to #NepalRelief

Over 8 million affected by Nepals worst earthquake and 2.7 million of them are children in need of vital aid, Sewa International appeals for support to our brethren in one of the most poorest countries of the world.

At least 940,000 children living in areas severely affected by yesterday’s earthquake in Nepal are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance.

The death toll from the earthquake could reach 10,000, Nepal’s prime minister said Tuesday.

More than 1.4 million people affected by Saturday’s devastating earthquake in Nepal are in need of food assistance

Nepal needs our shoulder, our compassionate action not just compassion, please join hands as global  citizens to make Nepal stand with pride. Be a part of rehabilitation and relief for the Nepalese….

Rehabilitation agencies have estimated that rebuilding the Earthquake hit areas of Nepal will take $5 billion at a minimum. Sewa International has set a target of raising a minimum of $1 million for this cause. Thus far, we have collected $100,000 through online and checks. We have pledges of an additional $250,000.

4 cloud predictions for 2015


So yes, 2014 was a big year for cloud. Now it’s time for some predictions for the year ahead. Based on gut instinct, here are my picks.

1: Cloud consolidation will continue

There are those who say that end-user thirst for cloud will mean enough business for everyone. I disagree — this is a scale game for the most part and with [company]Amazon[/company], [company]Google[/company] and [company]Microsoft[/company] sucking the air out of the room on public cloud, there will be room for some second-tier players but not for every cloud vendor on the horizon.

Last year’s consolidation  — [company]Cisco[/company] buying MetaCloud, [company]Hewlett-Packard[/company] buying Eucalyptus, [company]EMC[/company] buying CloudScaling — was prelude to more M&A to come. Can CloudSigma, Digital Ocean, GoGrid, Joyent, Mirantis, ProfitBricks and a dozen other cloud vendors all flourish and prosper as standalone companies? Don’t bet on it, but some of them might be nifty pickups for bigger companies that…

Mook Review: Gone Girl


Gone Girl – Novel by Gillian Flynn

via via

There are some books that seem to blow up all at once.  It’s as if suddenly EVERYONE is reading it, EVERYONE is talking about it, and EVERYONE is waiting movie adaptation.  These books are thrilling and successful, but are hardly ever very good (think The Da Vinci Code, 50 Shades of Grey), and typically have a great plot with surface level characters.  Frankly, these trendy books just don’t have much depth.

Gone Girl, in many ways, falls into the category of the book-of-the-moment.  Flynn’s third novel was wildly successful, with readers spanning from teenagers to parents to everyone in-between.  It was one of those novels everyone stayed up until 4am reading, just trying to get through one more chapter, and couldn’t wait to gush about to their peers.  But Flynn’s characters were complex.  As a reader, I developed emotions towards…

Fitbit announces new fitness trackers, including its first smartwatch


Fitbit announced three new fitness trackers on Monday, although only one will go on sale before the end of this year.
Once upon a time, Fitbit (see disclosure) made simple fitness trackers without screens. Now the leading tracker company is preparing the Surge, which is Fitbit’s first smartwatch. It’s still a fitness tracker, first and foremost, but you can’t miss its square-shaped black-and-white OLED screen. It’s not for the typical Android Wear user who is looking for better notifications. It’s for the serious athlete.
To go along with the bigger screen, the Fitbit Surge has several new features. It can display an entire watch face, it provides more information about your fitness stats and it can display notifications from your smartphone. It can now play music, as well.
It’s also got more sensors, including an optical heart rate sensor, a compass and GPS, which runners will appreciate. Even with all this…
