Top 7 Most Elite Private Armies
We've talked about the military before - the vast array of specialized task forces, weaponry and technological advancements have long made the varied armed forces of the world an intimidating and marvelous subject. However, with a huge amount of cutbacks - including budgetary and personnel cuts - private security and task firms have become something of a booming underdog force. These groups of privatized mercenaries range from the deadly to straight up ballsy - but they all share the same quality: they're flat out intimidating. Today, let's take a look at seven of the most dangerous private armies in the world - you won't believe the places some of these 'mercs will go. ●Subscribe For WEEKLY Videos- http://bit.ly/top7subscribe ●Facebook- http://on.fb.me/1XrphxZ 7 - Unity Resources Group 6 - Defion Internacional 5 - Triple Canopy 4 - DynCorp 3 - Erinys 2 - G4S 1 - Academi Legal Information Primary image & video source – VideoBlocks + BigStock Sources: http://pastebin.com/mNtvetMx Music: Audio Blocks "Final Hour" by Per Kiilstofte -CC-BY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSwJMaJWIV4 This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/us/

The Digital Skills Gap and the Future of Jobs 2020 - The Fundamental Growth Mindset
We’ve reached a tipping point in the future of jobs 2020. The digital skills gap is asking for the development of a growth mindset! (Get all the latest free growth resources 👉 https://hubs.ly/H0dL7Fl0) Organisational roles are disappearing and being replaced by skillsets. The digital skills gap is ever growing. At its current pace, technology is outpacing human skills causing a gap in the skills demanded and supplied by in the job market. In the future of jobs, employers require you to know an ever growing number of new and ever-changing fundamental skills in order to use the technologies they've implemented. That’s where the growth mindset comes in...Master the fundamentals and you can master the rest. The future of jobs 2020: McKinsey published a report stating that 45% of ALL current tasks could be automated with PRESENT technology. The world economic forum estimates that 33% of jobs in 2020 didn't even exist yet. We don't even know what 1/3rd of people will be doing by then or what skill they'll need to have. It starts with having a growth mindset where you have the desire and the confidence that you can learn anything. Shift your thinking on how technologies will rattle, mutate, but ultimately ENRICH your work life. If you play your cards right, technology will make your worklife much better. The future of jobs 2020 The fact is that technology will actually remove boring repetitive jobs from your way... but only if you understand the fundamentals. And you have no excuse to do so. How can you stay relevant if you can't talk the lingo. Can you talk tech, can you talk APIs, can you talk code, can you talk data? Education systems are struggling to keep up with the skills demanded by future jobs..so train yourself and if you're an employer, train your people. Online and offline courses have never been more readily available or rich in content. Take your education in your own hands, learn to code, learn about behavioural psychology, automation tools, playing with data, user experiences, be curious… it's time to build something! Your greatest credential in this new era is your output of stuff, proof of your awesomeness. A website, a blog, a prototype, a simple data model... it's time to build cool stuff and showcase it! It's time to get shit done, time to develop your growth mindset. It's time for YOUR growth. _________________________________________ About us: Growth Tribe is Europe’s 1st Growth Marketing Academy.

Origins of the Military-Industrial Complex
Daniel Else explored the results of his year-long inquiry into the organizational underpinnings of that military technological revolution of the 1940s and 1950s. By mining the Library's resources, Else traced the evolving relationship between science and the federal government leading to the creation of the Office of Scientific Research and Development (OSRD) in 1941. A temporary wartime agency, OSRD mobilized the nation's academic and industrial technological resources in support of the war effort, and in so doing profoundly altered the linkages between science and engineering, industry, and government. Else explored those wartime changes and outline their impact, still seen and felt today more than seven decades after V-J Day. Speaker Biography: Daniel Else was a specialist in national defense in the Congressional Research Service in the Library of Congress and the 2016 Kluge Staff Fellow at the Library's John W. Kluge Center. For transcript and more information, visit http://www.loc.gov/today/cyberlc/feature_wdesc.php?rec=8278

Top 5 Technologies in 2018
Top 5 Technologies in 2019 : https://youtu.be/aCY1GyKVpBw Python Tutorial for Beginners: https://goo.gl/cLKYQP 5 skills for IT Professional: https://goo.gl/ba6Ui7 Top 5 technologies to learn in 2018. Technologies are : IoT (Internet of Things) Cloud Computing Blockchain Artificial Intelligence Big Data IoT : The Internet of things (IoT) is the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity which enables these objects to connect and exchange data. The IoT allows objects to be sensed or controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure. Cloud Computing: Cloud computing enables ubiquitous access to shared pools of configurable system resources and higher-level services that can be rapidly provisioned with minimal management effort, often over the Internet. Cloud computing relies on sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economy of scale, similar to a utility. Third-party clouds enable organizations to focus on their core businesses instead of expending resources on computer infrastructure and maintenance. Cloud providers typically use a "pay-as-you-go" model. Blockchain: A blockchain is a continuously growing list of records, called blocks, which are linked and secured using cryptography which is resistant to modification of the data. Each block typically contains a hash pointer as a link to a previous block, a timestamp and transaction data. Blockchains are secure by design and are an example of a distributed computing system The first blockchain was conceptualized in 2008 by an anonymous person or group known as Satoshi Nakamoto and implemented in 2009 as a core component of bitcoin where it serves as the public ledger for all transactions. Artificial intelligence: AI is intelligence displayed by machines. In computer science, AI research is defined as the study of "intelligent agents": any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of success at some goal. Colloquially, the term "artificial intelligence" is applied when a machine mimics "cognitive" functions that humans associate with other human minds, such as "learning" and "problem-solving Big Data: Big data is data sets that are so voluminous and complex that traditional data processing application software is inadequate to deal with them. Big data challenges include capturing data, data storage, data analysis, search, sharing, transfer, visualization, querying, updating and information privacy. There are three dimensions to big data known as Volume, Variety and Velocity. Editing Monitors : https://amzn.to/2RfKWgL https://amzn.to/2Q665JW https://amzn.to/2OUP21a.

What does HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT mean? HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT meaning - HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT definition - HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Human resource management (HRM or simply HR) is the management of human resources. It is designed to maximize employee performance in service of an employer's strategic objectives. HR is primarily concerned with the management of people within organizations, focusing on policies and on systems. HR departments are responsible for overseeing employee benefits design, employee recruitment, training and development, performance appraisal, and rewarding (e.g., managing pay and benefit systems). HR also concerns itself with organizational change and industrial relations, that is, the balancing of organizational practices with requirements arising from collective bargaining and from governmental laws. HR is a product of the human relations movement of the early 20th century, when researchers began documenting ways of creating business value through the strategic management of the workforce. It was initially dominated by transactional work, such as payroll and benefits administration, but due to globalization, company consolidation, technological advances, and further research, HR as of 2015 focuses on strategic initiatives like mergers and acquisitions, talent management, succession planning, industrial and labor relations, and diversity and inclusion. Human Resources is a business field focused on maximizing employee productivity. Human Resources professionals manage the human capital of an organization and focus on implementing policies and processes. They can be specialists focusing in on recruiting, training, employee relations or benefits. Recruiting specialists are in charge of finding and hiring top talent. Training and development professionals ensure that employees are trained and have continuous development. This is done through training programs, performance evaluations and reward programs. Employee relations deals with concerns of employees when policies are broken, such as harassment or discrimination. Someone in benefits develops compensation structures, family leave programs, discounts and other benefits that employees can get. On the other side of the field are Human Resources Generalists or Business Partners. These human resources professionals could work in all areas or be labor relations representatives working with unionized employees. In startup companies, trained professionals may perform HR duties. In larger companies, an entire functional group is typically dedicated to the discipline, with staff specializing in various HR tasks and functional leadership engaging in strategic decision-making across the business. To train practitioners for the profession, institutions of higher education, professional associations, and companies themselves have established programs of study dedicated explicitly to the duties of the function. Academic and practitioner organizations may produce field-specific publications. HR is also a field of research study that is popular within the fields of management and industrial/organizational psychology, with research articles appearing in a number of academic journals, including those mentioned later in this article. Businesses are moving globally and forming more diverse teams. It is the role of human resources to make sure that these teams can function and people are able to communicate cross culturally and across borders. Due to changes in business, current topics in human resources are diversity and inclusion as well as using technology to advance employee engagement. In the current global work environment, most companies focus on lowering employee turnover and on retaining the talent and knowledge held by their workforce. New hiring not only entails a high cost but also increases the risk of a newcomer not being able to replace the person who worked in a position before. HR departments strive to offer benefits that will appeal to workers, thus reducing the risk of losing corporate knowledge.

Bringing the Human Being Back to Work www.winnersatwork.com.au
Surveys worldwide indicate that 70% of employees are disengaged at work. That means that only 30% of people are engaged at work. This is disturbing data. For the past 100-years, we’ve progressively dehumanised our places of work. We’ve learned to systemise, homogenise, and mechanise – all in the quest for greater efficiency and cost-saving. We’ve forgotten that the human being is the centre of work. Bringing the Human Being Back to Work: The 10 Performance and Development Conversations Leaders Must Have highlights the 10 essential performance and developmental conversations must have to restore human spirit at work. First, Bringing the Human Being Back to Work explains the importance of cultivating an authentic workplace by resisting the dumbing down of work and respecting employee dignity. Second, Bringing the Human Being Back to Work presents five developmental conversations, from coaching to relationship-building. Third, Bringing the Human Being Back to Work outlines five performance conversations, from climate review to innovation. An organisation – any organisation – is a group of people working together towards a common goal, but we tend to lose sight of this simple idea. Too often, human resources are lumped in with technological resources, administrative resources, and financial resources. Managers become obsessed with processes, procedures, and systems. I provide you with a roadmap to bring the human being back to work for greater engagement and productivity.

Inside Story - What can be done to stop global water scarcity?
Water scarcity is a growing problem, caused by everything from man-made climate change to poor governance. It is affecting more people than ever before and across all continents. In a time of technological innovation, why is something as basic as access to water still such a huge problem? And even as aid organisations work to resolve it, has climate change progressed so far that water scarcity will inevitably affect ever more people?The UN says in the next ten years more and more countries will see their resources dry up.

What Is Employee Experience?
As we shift to the future of work where organizations are focusing on the reasons why employees WANT to work versus NEED to work, it is important to understand employee experience. A lot of organizations historically have focused only on one aspect of organizational change and that is culture. This is how employees feel when they are inside of an organization, the vibe that they get, the organizational structure, leadership style, compensation and benefits, etc. While culture is a part of the employee experience, it is only a third. Employee experience is the combination of three distinct things that exist within any organization regardless of industry, size, and location. The other parts of employee experience are the technological environment and the physical environment. The technological environment is the tools an employee needs to do their job, including the user interface, mobile devices, and desktop computers. An organization should provide relevant and modern tools that allow employees to get their job done. The physical environment includes anything that can be seen, heard, touched, and tasted like the desks, chairs, art, and meals. This is crucial because employees spend most of their time inside the organization so it should have a positive effect on them. All three of these aspects should be focused on to create an environment where people want to show up! ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE The Future in Five is a regular video series where best-selling author, speaker, and futurist Jacob Morgan shares his ideas, insights, and commentary around the future of work in five minutes or less!

Supporting Innovation, Securing Water and Food
Achieving global food security amid dwindling water resources needs innovations—technological, sociological, and entrepreneurial. Ideas abound in the minds of innovative individuals/organizations around the world. Harnessing them requires supporting them on their way towards sustainability. In this video Ku MacMahan (USAID) and Marion van Schaik (Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs) discuss what it takes to identify the next big innovation, and for them to achieve scale and sustainability. Along with the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), Ku and Marion steer the ‘Securing Water for Food…’ programme. The programme identifies, awards, and supports innovations that will help produce more food with less water.... and make more water available for producing, processing and distributing food.

Water resources management by a wireless broadband network
The scarcity of water around the world is forcing the water authorities to use water resources which are scattered in remote areas with low accessibility and impossible permanent wire connections. On the other hand, the water resources are generally in long distances between each other and all of them are very far from the water consumption area. This constrains the administrative organizations to spend human and fund resources for controlling, monitoring and maintaining the installations with poor results, since no constant supervision can be achieved. The technological combination of wireless broadband networks (wifi), modern systems of signal control and data acquisition, computers/software and telematics can provide an excellent solution for this problem. In this video the process of planning and installation of a system, for the telematic control and management of eleven wells and storage installations and distribution process for the Municipality of Thira (Fira, Santorini, Greece) is presented. The installation is checking the pumping stations, the levels of water tanks as well as qualitative data of the water supplies, from distance through a wireless network. The system interacts automatically or manually with the installations and to preset points, giving complete records of the data and alarms to any malfunction or oncoming breakdown. The proposed solution is expandable regarding the installations in control and the signals which are collected and checked. The equipment which is used is simple keeping the budget of the installation low. However, the equipment has been tested for enough period of time and the proposed solution has been proved to be reliable and reasonably low-cost for the water resources management. The narration in this video is in Greek Language. The video is not complete... The 10 out of 12 minutes of the duration of the video is presented due to YouTube 10 minutes restriction.

HELLO GUYS HOW R U ALL , IN THIS VIDEO IM TALK ABOUT RUSSIA . #RUSSIA #RUSSIAFACTS #RUSSIALIFESTYLE Russia (Russian: Росси́я, tr. Rossiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijə]), officially the Russian Federation[12] (Russian: Росси́йская Федера́ция, tr. Rossiyskaya Federatsiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijskəjə fʲɪdʲɪˈratsɨjə]), is a country in Eurasia.[13] At 17,125,200 square kilometres (6,612,100 sq mi),[14] Russia is the largest country in the world by area, covering more than one-eighth of the Earth's inhabited land area,[15][16][17] and the ninth most populous, with over 144 million people as of December 2017, excluding Crimea.[8] About 77% of the population live in the western, European part of the country. Russia's capital, Moscow is one of the largest cities in the world; other major cities include Saint Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg and Nizhny Novgorod. Following the Russian Revolution, the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic became the largest and leading constituent of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the world's first constitutionally socialist state.[23] The Soviet Union played a decisive role in the Allied victory in World War II,[24][25] and emerged as a recognized superpower and rival to the United States during the Cold War. The Soviet era saw some of the most significant technological achievements of the 20th century, including the world's first human-made satellite and the launching of the first humans in space. By the end of 1990, the Soviet Union had the world's second largest economy, largest standing military in the world and the largest stockpile of weapons of mass destruction.[26][27][28] Following the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, twelve independent republics emerged from the USSR: Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and the Baltic states regained independence: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania; the Russian SFSR reconstituted itself as the Russian Federation and is recognized as the continuing legal personality and a successor of the Soviet Union.[29] It is governed as a federal semi-presidential republic. The Russian economy ranks as the twelfth largest by nominal GDP and sixth largest by purchasing power parity in 2015.[30] Russia's extensive mineral and energy resources are the largest such reserves in the world,[31] making it one of the leading producers of oil and natural gas globally.[32][33] The country is one of the five recognized nuclear weapons states and possesses the largest stockpile of weapons of mass destruction.[34] Russia is a great power as well as a regional power and has been characterised as a potential superpower. It is a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council and an active global partner of ASEAN,[35][36][37] as well as a member of the G20, the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), the Council of Europe, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), and the World Trade Organization (WTO), as well as being the leading member of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) and one of the five members of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), along with Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.

The Cultural Commons: Alternatives To Unsustainable Living And Technological Domination
In this recorded interview, Professor Chet Bowers defines modern cultural commons as solutions for addressing environmental degradation and the rush to adopt technology at all cost. He reminds us that cultural commons are as relevant today as they were hundreds of years ago, in that they promote industry and invention as a social good, clearly focused on benefitting all. As opposed to today's concept of technological determinism that is often at odds with our physical, economic and social needs at the community level. The cultural commons--face to face communication, sharing and learning--are vital if we are to survive the challenges that face us today.

Cork Cancer Research Centre: A Decade of Discovery... A Decade of Delivery
The Cork Cancer Research Centre (CCRC) is a multidisciplinary organisation that investigates major issues that concern the genesis, progression or treatment of cancer. Its purpose is to provide discovery and innovations that may be applied to the prevention of the cancer in the first place or to the development of more effective treatment strategies. Its foundation was based on the unshakeable belief that the cancer questions can be resolved and that in Cork we could create the capability to make significant contributions. Cancer research is a continuum from basic investigation through to clinical application. In our Centre we foster such an environment where: •there is an interactive atmosphere conducive to collaboration between investigators of differing skills and profession; •we have the human and technological resources to provide high standard penetrating research; •inquiry and innovation are relevant to knowledge creation and clinical application. The success of a cancer research facility should extend beyond the measurement of publications or awards. There is the importance of application of research developments to patients. The patient story shown on this film piece eloquently describes the significance of one such development. We invite you to watch this film piece and to share in our progress. Through the commitment of our staff and collaborators, the continued support of our volunteers, donors and funding agencies, we will truly improve cancer care.

Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum, Bangalore
The Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum, (VITM), Bangalore, India, a constituent unit of the National Council of Science Museums (NCSM), Ministry of Culture, Government of India, was established in memory of Bharat Ratna Sir M Visvesvaraya. The building, with a built up area of 4,000 m2 (43,000 sq ft), was constructed in Cubbon Park. It houses various scientific experiments and engines, and was opened by the first Prime Minister of India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, on 14 July 1962. The first gallery set up at VITM, on the theme of 'Electricity', was opened to the public on 27 July 1965. In order to honour Bharat Ratna Sir M Visvesvaraya, the All India Manufacturers’ Organisation, Mysore State Board, decided to set up a science and technology museum at Bangalore, and the foundation stone was laid by Shri B. D. Jatti, Chief Minister of Mysore, on 15 September 1958. The Visvesvaraya Industrial Museum Society (VIMS) came to be registered as the nodal agency in order to pool resources from various industrial houses. A building with a display space of 4,000 m2 (43,000 sq ft), which was constructed in Cubbon Park, houses displays of industrial products and engines. it was opened by the first Prime Minister of India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, on 14 July 1962. However, the society felt that the southern region lacked a science museum. The eastern region already had a science museum in Calcutta under CSIR, which was quite popular, and on the Society’s request CSIR took over VITM. The society nominated a permanent representative to the executive committee of VITM, and on 27 July 1965, VITM opened in Bangalore with the first gallery on the theme of ‘Electricity’. In the year 1970, VITM launched the Mobile Science Exhibition (MSE) with 24 participatory exhibits mounted on a bus. The MSE Bus travels throughout South India, and it continues to be a very effective tool for Science communication in the rural area as the bus carries with it a portable planetarium, telescope for night sky observations, HD large screen TV for science film shows in the evenings, materials for conducting popular science shows and demonstrations aimed towards the general populace. In 1978, the science museums/centres including VITM were delinked from CSIR and brought under a newly-formed society registered on 4 April 1978 as National Council of Science Museums (NCSM). In 1979, an extension was added to the building, increasing the total area of the museum to 6,900 m2 (74,000 sq ft).

Generalized Mining and The Third-Party Economy, hosted by CoinFund and Cambrial at Prague Blockchain Week. October 30, 2018. A wave of new groups have taken to market to build mining companies and network-facing services that tend to provision staking and validator nodes. Today, they are focused on defensibility strategies having to do with specialized hardware, operational security, and the deep economic understanding of proof-of-stake (PoS) systems. But as decentralized networks become ubiquitous as large-scale coordination mechanisms and, ultimately, publicly-owned institutions, it will become apparent that the role of technological actors in these networks goes far beyond PoS-style block validation.

We have termed the activity of engaging the set of techno-financial opportunities in decentralized networks generalized mining, a nod to the roots of third-party cryptoeconomics in systems such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. We have termed the general marketplace of networks, service providers, and cryptoeconomic business opportunities as the third-party economy. Investors, companies, and projects play an important role in these upcoming networks. This meetup is intended to bring together the foremost participants in the generalized mining space to explore this set of exciting opportunities.
