The Natural Area Code (or Universal Address) is a proprietary geocode system for identifying an area anywhere on the Earth, or a volume of space anywhere around the Earth.

Natural Area Code

The use of thirty alphanumeric characters instead of only ten digits makes a NAC shorter than its numerical latitude/longitude equivalent. §Two-dimensional system[edit] Instead of numerical longitudes and latitudes, a grid with 30 rows and 30 columns - each cell denoted by the numbers 0-9 and the twenty consonants of the Latin alphabet - is laid over the flattened globe.

A NAC cell (or block) can be subdivided repeatedly into smaller NAC grids to yield an arbitrarily small area, subject to the ±1 m limitations of the World Geodetic System (WGS) data of 1984. A NAC represents an area on the earth—the longer the NAC, the smaller the area (and thereby, location) represented. Future Transportation Technology Will Blow Your Mind.

By Michael Carney On March 6, 2015 Southern California ports typically handle 40 percent of all US container imports, and yet, for much of the last year, that flow of imported goods has slowed to barely a trickle.

Cargomatic plays the role of hero, swooping in to help unclog America’s largest ports

A protracted labor dispute between Pacific Maritime Association and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union has left critical goods sitting on ships in the harbor waiting to be offloaded or, often more frustratingly, piled in container stacks across the port waiting to be unloaded and cleared of customs. The Union workers signed a tentative contract in late February, but that agreement only marked the beginning of what will surely be a months long process of digging out from under the massive container backlog.

Developers familiar with using Perl can take advantage of the Automation capabilities in Perl for Win32 to integrate with applications such as Microsoft Office.

How To Automate Excel Using Perl for Win32

This article gives you some example Perl code that sends data to Microsoft Excel and then creates a Chart and PivotTable. Before executing any Perl scripts, you need to have Perl installed and configured on your machine. Because Perl is freely distributed, anyone can provide an implementation of Perl for Win32. Two commonly used ported versions are provided by ActiveState, formerly ActiveWare, and Mortice Kern System (MKS). This example uses ActiveState's Perl for Win32. Follow the steps below to create and run the sample: Ruling the world with Perl and Excel. Mailinator(tm) Blog: Mailinator launches Private Domains.

Mailinator(tm) Blog: Mailinator launches Private Domains

Mailinator.com If you weren't aware, Mailinator has always allowed you to point any domain you own to the Mailinator SMTP servers (i.e. the MX record). The Mailinator email system accepts any and all email sent to it and happily delivers it to the designated inbox. For example, if you own "yourdomain.com", point the MX record to mail.mailinator.com and send email to joe123@yourdomain.com - that email will end up in the "joe" inbox at You don't even have to sign-up with Mailinator to do all that - just point your domain! Neat, huh? Email sent to Mailinator this way however follows the same fate as any other email in the public system. CloudCorner - Your Geolocated Cloud Storage.

Malcolm Gladwell's David And Goliath

The popular author lays out his argument for being a big fish in a little pond in his latest book, "David and Goliath," a work that aims to overturn conventional notions about what makes for a disadvantage and who should be considered an underdog. Gladwell's basically against anyone attending a famous university just for the name, or really doing anything for the sake of prestige. To choose something elite is, more often than not, to choose being a little fish in a big pond, he says, since only a select few will shine among the best. Éducation bienveillante. Puzzle: Fast Bit Counting. Devise a fast algorithm for computing the number of 1-bits in an unsigned integer.

Puzzle: Fast Bit Counting

If the machine supports n-bit integers, can we compute the number of 1-bits in O(log n) machine instructions? Can we compute the number of 1-bits in O(b) machine instructions where b is the number of 1-bits in the integer? Source: Commonly asked in job interviews for Software Engineers. I first heard it in 1996 when I was a graduate student. Solution: This article presents six solutions to this problem. Iterated Count runs in time proportional to the total number of bits. Sparse Ones runs in time proportional to the number of 1 bits. Dense Ones runs in time proportional to the number of 0 bits. IBM 'Watson' Wins: 'Jeopardy' Computer Beats Ken Kennings, Brad Rutter.

Swarm intelligence (SI) is the collective behavior of decentralized, self-organized systems, natural or artificial. The concept is employed in work on artificial intelligence. The expression was introduced by Gerardo Beni and Jing Wang in 1989, in the context of cellular robotic systems.[1] The application of swarm principles to robots is called swarm robotics, while 'swarm intelligence' refers to the more general set of algorithms.

DropDAV is a nifty service that enables you to use Dropbox with WebDAV clients. It was developed to work with the iWork suite for the iPad, but it will work with any WebDAV client, so you could also use it to sync OmniFocus through your Dropbox account, for example. It’s simple to set up, although you do need to provide it with your Dropbox username and password to get going. Once set up, you connect to with your WebDAV client and log in using your Dropbox credentials. How to use WebDAV in Pages, Keynote, or Numbers with Dropbox.
