As more workers return to the office, companies are considering ways to track their employees to help prevent the spread of coronavirus among their workforce.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: yes the new normal may include being tracked by governments and employers for contact tracing. At some point the data will need to be be stored somewhere and the question will become: where is it stored? is it secure? is privacy protected?

Paula Spring's curator insight, June 21, 4:05 PM
It seems to be what's wanted to be used to monitor who has COVID-19 and who doesn't.  This would be those who have tested positive, those who have not been tested, and those in recovery.  By contract monitoring, every move made can be calculated.  The results could mean that persons found infected could be made to relocate to a forced quarantine.  The information could present pattern motion as a whole.  Thus, helping calculate where higher infection rates populate and helping to further investigation as to the cause/causes and spread of COVID-19.

Another speculation, it could help provide a system that incorporates police to be able to enforce that known infected persons are regulated to ensure that home quarantine is followed.  It could also help monitor, recovered cases in the possibility of relapse.  Relapse in regards to future contact with active positive cases, and the physical preparedness to relapse or not relapse.

Learn from experience of companies that have decided to ditch their office and have all workers remote: Everything We Know About Remote Work via @Buffer | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Remote work has been the norm at Buffer for many years now; we ditched our office in 2015 and have been hiring remote teammates since 2011. Here's our take on remote work.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: have everyone work from home. Many say it cannot be done. Buffer has done it. They may be small (few 100s employees) and not have a long history (10 years) and produce a digital solution (website), their experience may help every business improve their remote work environments.

State of #Cybersecurity 2020 shows that it is mostly a human resources problem - which is not going to be resolved soon and may bee exacerbated with enhanced remote work via @ISACA @CybersecurityHub | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The cybersecurity skills gap has been plaguing enterprises for years—but despite garnering much discussion and media coverage, little progress is being made.

State of Cybersecurity 2020 looks at questions such as:

  • How long does it take to fill a cybersecurity role with a qualified candidate?
  • What percentage of cybersecurity candidates are qualified for the role?
  • Is retention improving or worsening?
  • Which cybersecurity skills are in the highest demand?
  • Are HR teams informed partners in the search for qualified cybersecurity candidates?
  • Are cybersecurity teams becoming more gender-balanced, and are diversity programs doing enough to help?
  • What can companies do to staff up more quickly and find better-qualified candidates?
Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this in depth study shows that cybersecurity issues in organizations stem from lack of skilled resources. With covid and remote work on the rise, the importance of cybersecurity is higher than it has ever been.

WELCOME TO RX ONLINE PHARMACY

Buy Oxycodone Online HERE at RX Pharmacy Online Store. Patients should buy Oxycodone Online from RX Pharmacy Online store which is the best online store for your pain pills.  Oxycodone is an opioid analgesic medication synthesized from the base. It was developed in 1916 in Germany, as one of several new semi-synthetic opioids with several benefits over the older traditional opiates and opioids; morphine, diacetylmorphine(heroin) and codeine. It was introduced to the pharmaceutical market as Eukodal or Eucodal and Darkon. Its chemical name is derived from codeine – the chemical structures are very similar, differing only in that the hydroxyl group of codeine has been oxidized to a carbonyl group (as in ketones), hence the -one suffix, the 7,8-dihydro-feature (codeine has a double-bond between those two carbons), and the hydroxyl group at carbon-14 (codeine has just hydrogen in its place), hence oxycodone. So buy oxycodone online

 

Tendencies towards the use of the internet pharmacies are observed not only in developed countries such as the USA and Canada but also within the territory of other countries. The advantages of internet shopping cannot be overstated. Every user can order the delivery of medications in a couple of minutes.

 

Tendencies towards the sale of the over-the-counter (OTC) drugs are also observed because it helps to save money and time. If a person does not have insurance covering all medical services, it is necessary to pay for the doctor’s consultations and quality medications. Expensive drugs become less demanded and popular under the conditions of the modern pharmaceutical market.

Together, these forces will revolutionize the way that work gets done in companies and will compel leaders to rethink even the most basic assumptions about how their organizations function. They will need to discover new ways of organizing, performing, and leading, along with new approaches to recruiting, developing, and engaging employees. All this in organizations with limitless data, open boundaries, employees and machines working side by side, and rapidly evolving employee value propositions.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: the biggest impact of digital transformation is on humans and this article from BCG analyzes the changes in talent demand and supply. Must read for managers in the context of global changes we currently see.

Courtney Green's curator insight, May 2, 6:45 PM
The meat company Tyson recently had to shut down some of their facilities due to employees becoming sick with Covid-19. This move sent major concern throughout the federal government about the economy and consumers on how they will be able to receive meat. This got me thinking that eventually companies may start finding ways to reduce actual human workers and rely majorly on artificial intelligence as a way to continue work. So far we have seen workers go on strike, become sick or forced to stay home with their children. It would be naive to assume that companies/organizations won't be transformed and changed forever after this. According to the article, they predict several forces that will revolutionize work and one of them is automation. They believe that by 2050 nearly half of all U.S jobs will be completed through automation. Even before the pandemic we have seen automation dismantled industries, but that could be accelerated by companies desire to ensure their work process is not disrupted in the future. This could prove to have a tremendous affect on employment in the future as robots replace humans more and more.

Black Iberian Pig For Sale

The Iberian pig is an animal of the porcine breed, the name also applies to varieties belonging to what is known as the “Iberian trunk”, which includes black and red, furry or hairless breeds. The Iberian pigs, predominant in the Iberian Peninsula shared between Spain and Portugal, are highly appreciated animals in the gastronomic sector as they produce the famous Iberian ham and different types of sausages. Black Iberian Pig For sale in USA at Kentucky Cattle Range.

The Iberian pig 

The Iberian pig is a unique species with characteristics that differentiate it from other animals of the same species, such as the ability to infiltrate fat in the muscle. Physically speaking, these animals have a well-proportioned head and a pointed muzzle. Unlike other types of pigs, the Iberian has a powerful neck, a drooping dewlap, medium-sized ears in the form of a visor and a large belly. Its extremities, the ones we are most interested in when talking about ham, are thin.

The Iberian pigs, as their name suggests, belong to a breed native to the Iberian Peninsula, located between Spain and Portugal, where there are two groups of breeds listed below:

  • Celtic pig (practically extinct)
  • Iberian Pig
  • Size:

    Medium to large animals, around 600 – 900 pounds at maturity.

    Temperament:

    Excellent disposition. Friendly and curious.

    • Iberian black layer, which includes the varieties Lampiño and Entrepelado.
    • Iberian red layer, which includes the varieties Retinta or Colorada, Rubia de Cádiz, Manchanda de Jabugo and Torbiscal.

The most widely used variety in the world of ham is Retinta or Colorada which, in addition to being very prolific, allows for greater use after slaughtering the animal. So, the most important thing to know is that the Iberian pig is a native breed of animal. Its physiological capacity to store fat between muscles makes it have a high gastronomic value. The Iberian pigs are the only pigs in the world from which it is possible to obtain Iberian ham, a product with a very particular aroma, flavor and texture, also healthy and nutritious.

Iberian Ham and products

In the production of Iberian ham, not only the breed (which is fundamental) is important, but also the process of breeding the animal. Although in theory all pigs are used to make ham, only the so-called white pig and the Iberian pig are used to make a ham. The latter is the key piece in the production of Iberian ham. The different types of ham and Iberian products are given by the percentage of purity of the animal’s breed and the food it has fed on.

The mind behind Linux | Linus Torvalds - this video is great because it explains why 1) #geeks are strange and 2) what you need to be a *good* programmer

Linus Torvalds transformed technology twice — first with the Linux kernel, which helps power the Internet, and again with Git, the source code management system used by developers worldwide. In a rare interview with TED Curator Chris Anderson, Torvalds discusses with remarkable openness the personality traits that prompted his unique philosophy of work, engineering and life. "I am not a visionary, I'm an engineer," Torvalds says. "I'm perfectly happy with all the people who are walking around and just staring at the clouds ... but I'm looking at the ground, and I want to fix the pothole that's right in front of me before I fall in."

The jobs of the future are growing faster than all jobs, but this does not mean transition will be painless via @Axios @Cognizant | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Maybe you didn't grow up dreaming of being an "augmented reality journey builder" or "master of edge computing" or a "cyber calamity forecaster." But someone will. Jobs of the future will be heavy on the use of algorithms, automation and AI; customer experience; environment; fitness and wellness; health care; legal and financial services; transport; and work culture.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: it looks like the new technologies that replace jobs at a rapid pace are also creating new ones at a faster pace. This may prevent dooms day scenarios where self-driving trucks make truck drivers useless for example. However, looking at the new jobs created the skills they require is very different from the one they replace (not sure truck drivers can master edge computing easily - or enjoy it). More disturbing some of the high growth jobs are low paying ones, such as elderly care workers. Change thus will be hurtful for many of the displaced.

The predictions can sound apocalyptic: millions and millions of jobs destroyed by automation, an entire working generation replaced at a stroke. But the actual number of jobs affected—while alarming—shouldn’t really be the entire focus of the conversation. The debate needs to shift. Yes, we know the robots are coming—so what are we going to do about it?

All jobs below C-suite level are to be reclassified. All those impacted will no longer be employees of IIM. Instead you will work for IIM on a contract basis. This change sounds scarier than it really is. It holds great benefits both for you and for IIM. The company will be able to respond more nimbly to a rapidly changing marketplace. We hope that you will continue to perform services for IIM on a contract basis, but you will also have the opportunity to work and earn elsewhere. If you have any questions, please ask Irma, our human-resources chatbot.

This post focuses on one important aspect of  the machine learning at Linkedin’s feed: candidate selection. Before final fine feed ranking, a personalized candidate generation algorithm is applied to tens of thousands of feed updates to select a diverse and unique candidate pool.

Legacy structures and operations are keeping companies from taking full advantage of technology to modernize marketing.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: digital transformation often is sparked by technology improvements - Big Data, advanced analytics, AI. Marketing has been affected profoundly by what is called marTech but this article highlights that successful transformations require an attention to people, skills, roles, work organization, and change management. Based on my experience I believe this applies to many other departments in the organization when faced with similar technological revolution.

A group of experienced lawyers pitted their skills and knowledge against an algorithm, and the results reveal much about how artificial intelligence is shaking up industries.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: if you study or practice law and plan to retire within the next 10 years, you can move on and not read this one. If you plan to keep working in the field, then you should study programming or develop some other tech skill to remain relevant in the coming years. Consider yourself warned! ;-)

Une IA réalise un taux de réussite 94% dans l'analyse de vices cachés dans 5 accords de confidentialité différents en 26 secondes vs 85% pour les meilleurs avocats expérimentés sélectionnés en 92 minutes de moyenne. 
Selon WEF la part d'automatisation dans les tâches dites à valeur ajoutée, comme les services juridiques, pourrait dépasser les 52% d'ici à 2025.
Il va sans dire que nous vivons une période de transition dont les développements technologiques en cours devraient impacter de manière spectaculaire notre façon de travailler ou de concevoir notre avenir professionnel, ce au cours de la prochaine décennie.
