Big Data helps to Alleviate Diabetes with companies like Diabetizer

October 26, 2014

My brother has Diabetes.   He has had it since he was young so I grew up with this disease in my family.

But a  cure for diabetes could be imminent after scientists discovered how to make huge quantities of insulin-producing cells, in a breakthrough hailed as significant as antibiotics.

Harvard University has, for the first time, managed to manufacture the millions of beta cells required for transplantation.

It could eventually mean the end of daily insulin injections for the 347 million people globally living with Type 1 diabetes and it will provide new forms of treatment for those suffering with Type 2 diabetes.

In the meantime, take a listen to this set of BlueMix apps — one of which is Diabetizer using “data” to help people with this disease.  ( http://www.diabetizer.com/?lang=en )

Digital tip of the week – How to write a perfect LinkedIn summary

October 24, 2014

The summary section on your LinkedIn profile is your presentation letter to the world and the way you can encourage people to read on. Simplicity is key to have a good summary that will reflect and summarize the rest of your profile. Here are some recommendations:

  • It should be detailed, but concise. But try to use the 2,000 characters available leveraging key words and phrases related to the role and the business.
  • Be organized: try to not have your summary look too cluttered, instead break it up with Subheads and make it easy to read.
  • Include your contact information. Make it easy for people to find you.

Digital tip of the week – How to block/unblock a contact in LinkedIn

October 17, 2014

Spam is a reality in LinkedIn too. Even if you have the choice to select your connections, you might allow someone by mistake. Sometimes a fake or misused profile can fill your inbox with unwanted promotions or spam that is not really necessary, apart that they would have access to some of your personal data.
To block a member for viewing your profile, go to his or her profile and move your cursor over the down arrow next to the button in the top section, select Block or report, and then click Block and Continue. The final step would be to click Agree to confirm your action.

The blocked member won’t receive any notification but you would need to add this person again to your network if you decide to unblock him. All their endorsements and recommendations from your profile will also be removed permanently.

You can unblock a member in the Privacy & Setting section, under “Manage who you’re blocking”.
