The arrival of Donald Trump in the White House and elections in France and Germany will highlight the increasing power of new communication channels as traditional media continues to lose both influence and money. Artificial Intelligence (AI) takes over from mobile as the hottest topic in technology, though the practical and ethical dilemmas around how it will be used become ever more apparent through the year.

See Example( s )In August 2015, a video claiming that episodes of the Fox animated series The Simpsons had made some eerily accurate predictions about future events began circulating via social media. Most notable among those predictions was a clip purportedly taken from a 2000 episode that showed business magnate Donald Trump announcing his candidacy for President of the United States:I want people to realize the synchronicity here and all the connections.
This was put out in 2000. Now this is happening. While the above-displayed video touches on a wide variety of Simpsons related conspiracy theories, the main issue was highlighted in September 2015 with a photograph one that not only documented that The Simpsons had depicted Donald Trump running for President back in 2000, but that they did so by showing him in a setting and pose (riding an escalator while waving to supporters and onlookers) identical to one he would assume fifteen years later:The images from The Simpsons shown on the left-hand side of the above-displayed graphic did not originate in 2000, however.
Burns and a dog kneeling in front of an electoral map is real, but it has little to do with Donald Trump it was taken from a 2012 clip in which the greedy billionaire of Springfield endorsed Republican candidate Mitt Romney:Furthermore, this Simpsons screenshot is being compared to an electoral map that does not match the genuine map of the 2016 presidential election.

We are home to the Center for Mathematical Finance and Actuarial Research, an interdisciplinary research center providing leadership in quantitative finance.It took me to places in Iceland I may not have considered if I booked on my own. Even though we travel to Europe at least a couple of times a year and do it indepently (find our own accomodation, etc. Iceland's reputation of being very expensive concerned us too.
We pinpointed the potential travel time as early September (2012), during the summer, we started to search more intensely. Tried to compare and understand the kinds and details of services offered by a number of different operators. Self-drive tours appealed to us since we would be still independent but especially accommodations would be arranged for us.
Small towns with potentially limited accomodations and the distance in between did not give a comfort level for arranging our own accomodations. Also the coverage and duration of their tours appealed to us. After exchanging a few e-mails with some questions, which were promptly answered, decided to phone them directly to expedite the process. The phone response was efficient (Manuella), friendly, informative and spoke to the quality of the service we may potentially be getting from this agency.
Due to being 6 hour behind Iceland (Western Canada) some of the phone calls coincided with the end of the work day in Iceland but Manuella did not mind and give as much info. Our choice was made and it was the FULL CIRCLE tour of Iceland.
We chose the budget accommodations and the economy car options. It was within our budget and was going to give a fairly good view of Iceland. We decided to fly to Reykjavik first and spend four days there.
Manuella confirmed that upon our arrival, if we contact Nordic Visito orlandojlferreira, Netherlands Iceland Full Circle, August 2012 The perfect way to discover one of the last unspoiled countries in Europe. For several years now Iceland has been on the top of our travelling plans. We set ourselves quite an ambitious task, also considering that we were travelling with our 4 year old son. We decided to do the full circle tour around the island in just over 2 weeks and I have to say we were not at all disappointed.
Not only did the island exceed our expectations, but also the quality of the organisation was excellent. The choice of hotels was carefully made by our travel agent to ensure our son would have plenty to do, while not compromising on the highlights. All the activities were also well planned and the information provided by our travel agent was accurate, detailed and useful. The agency was also very quick in action when required.
Mid way through our stay we decided to prolong our trip and with the help of Nordic Visitor it was possible to arrange it, despite all the full booked hotels in the high season.
All in all, a great country to explore and great to have Nordic Visitor facilitating the process. My 7 year old son and I thoroughly enjoyed a self drive family tour on the Ring Road right around Iceland in July 2012. We highly recommend the service provided by Nordic Visitor who provided excellent front end service by email as my son and I worked with their staff to construct a customized version of the trip.
Maria at the Reykjavik office provided quick and thorough responses to our many questions. She constructed a 12 day vacation that was a trip of a lifetime for us. She made sure that we stayed in kid friendly lodging that provided unique and interesting glimpses of Icelandic life in small guest houses and farm stays.
Airport pickup and drop off as well as car rental were worry free and exceeded expectations. Excellent information and maps allowed us to plan our days easily and see Iceland as we wanted to see it. All of the included tours and attractions were thoroughly enjoyable. We received excellent value by booking with Nordic Visitor.They cost less money to open and operate, and they take up less space in urban environments, allowing retailers to capitalize on the potential of large population centers.
Personalization will become increasingly important to consumers. Unfortunately, the tactics retailers once used to speak directly to customers (such as using first names in an email) have become outdated and transparent in the eyes of those very customers. At the same time, though, consumers are searching more and more for personalized shopping experiences they can really connect with, so 2017 should see retailers testing new ways to appeal to this desire.
One retailer at the forefront of this trend. The athleticwear brand has always been innovative when it comes to personalization (allowing shoppers to customize their sneakers, etc. Of course, Nike is massive and financially successful, so they have the resources to push personalization to its limits.
But smaller retailers can take advantage of this trend, too. Consumers are more and more prepared to give access to their data for a fair loyalty offering or personalized incentive. Same-day shipping will become more prominent. The name of the new game. Consumers might not want to actually make the trip to physical locations, but they still want the instant gratification of taking their purchases home immediately. Is fulfillment feasible based on the location(s) of the retailer.
Retailers will continue to invest in omnichannel. Omnichannel is now the standard.
In 2017, we can expect retailers worldwide to push their omnichannel strategies further than ever before in the pursuit of truly seamless shopping experiences. The retail world is rife with examples of this. Moving forward, these omnichannel efforts will be the difference between the retailers who succeed and the ones who fail. They also see the value in kitting out their physical space with a welcoming environment and paying more for experienced staff.
But when it comes to small businesses investing in their digital platforms (aka the backbone of day-to-day operations), cheaper or free have traditionally been the go-to solutions. Use a free appointment app to handle the bookings. POS and inventory software. The value a business places on a digital platform tells its patrons everything they need to know about its true values. As digital platforms continue to become more powerful and interconnected, it gets easier for customers to see which businesses are authentically interested in their support.
Retailtainment will pervade the industry. Retailtainment assumes that people are more likely to engage with retailers who incorporate lifestyle elements into their stores, such as boutique coffee shops or virtual reality experiences. Take iPic Theaters, for example. Data will continue to be a significant component of retail success. More and more merchants will recognize this which is why we think companies will double-down on data collection and analysis.Then it moves his direction and he puts a little more down.
Readers looking for a moral tome on the evils of the gambling life will need to look elsewhere. After reading the book my senior year of college, I submitted an application to the Las Vegas Sports Consultants (LVSC) and attained a summer internship with the group.
I referenced this book in my interview, and that my interest in LVSC was driven by Chad's portrayal of the firm. It was a fantastic experience that I will never forget. Needless to say, I am slightly biased when it comes to reviewing this book. I typically take something from all books, but this book obviously delivered more than I expected (A JOB. Here is my best objective summary of the book.
The greatest strength of this book is the development of the many characters in the book. I say the word "character" because these are definitly not your average Joe. My personal favorite is Alan Boston. Alan is a lovable curmudgeon that means well, but often shoots himself in the foot.
I pleasantly laughed out loud at some of the remarks he made while watching games (primarily because I have made the same comments myself). If I would change the book in any way, I would strike the section on legislation and legalization of sports wagering. Although it is relevant to the story, I felt like it dragged on at times, and took away from the excitement of the "action. The writing is strong, and not without moments of "tongue-in-cheek" humor. Chad is an interesting guy himself, who I have corresponding with since reading the book.
He is a very friendly person who cares deeply about his audience. Buy this book, and if you dont enjoy it, find a degenerate gambler to give it to. He or she will be sure to find a special place in their heart for it. It takes the reader on the roller coaster ride of betting on college basketball in Las Vegas. Although there were far too many typographical and grammatical problems, the story is engaging.
If you ever wondered how the sports books set the lines or what the lifestyle of the full-time "professional" sports bettor is, this book is illuminating. Interestingly, Millman predicts the imminent demise of the Vegas sports book 14 years ago, but today the business seems to be as strong as ever. As a fan of Chad Millman's podcast, I enjoyed reading the book that had such a significant impact on his future.
Also, this introduced me to some of his guests on the podcast and provided background information on them.
It also provides some interesting tales of the transition of sports betting from its early days to the more corporate set up today and discusses the impact of the internet on sports betting. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would love to read a sequel that updated where some of the people are today and the changes in the more than a decade since the book was written.

The number of holes remaining is greater than or equal to the score at the time of withdrawal.
For the Last Hole Played market, if a player withdraws after the 16th hole when the match is tied or after the 17th when a player leads by 1, then the Last Hole played is settled as Hole 18, since any natural conclusion to the match would require the 18th hole to be played.

Any postponed or cancelled matches will be treated as a non-runner for settling purposes unless it is played within 48 hours of the original start time. Half BettingThe designated half must be completed for bets to stand, unless the outcome of the specific market is already determined.Batch Topic Distributions Last Updated: Monday, 2017-10-30 10:31 A batch topic distribution provides an easy way to compute a topic distribution for each instance in a dataset in only one request.
Batch topic distributions are created asynchronously. You can also list all of your batch topic distributions. You can easily create a new batch topic distribution using curl as follows. All the fields in the dataset Specifies the fields in the dataset to be considered to create the batch topic distribution. Example: "my new batch topic distribution" newline optional String,default is "LF" The new line character that you want to get as line break in the generated csv file: "LF", "CRLF".
For example, to create a new batch topic distribution named "my batch topic distribution", that will not include a header, and will only output the field "000001" together with the probability for each topic distribution. Once a batch topic distribution has been successfully created it will have the following properties. Creating a batch topic distribution is a process that can take just a few seconds or a few hours depending on the size of the dataset used as input and on the workload of BigML's systems.
The batch topic distribution goes through a number of states until its finished. Through the status field in the batch topic distribution you can determine when it has been fully processed. Once you delete a batch topic distribution, it is permanently deleted. If you try to delete a batch topic distribution a second time, or a batch topic distribution that does not exist, you will receive a "404 not found" response.
However, if you try to delete a batch topic distribution that is being used at the moment, then BigML.
To list all the batch topic distributions, you can use the batchtopicdistribution base URL. By default, only the 20 most recent batch topic distributions will be returned.
You can get your list of batch topic distributions directly in your browser using your own username and API key with the following links. You can also paginate, filter, and order your batch topic distributions. Evaluations Last Updated: Monday, 2017-10-30 10:31 An evaluation provides an easy way to measure the performance of a predictive model.
The type of an evaluation can vary.
It can be timeseries type if it is created using a time series. The performance measures provided by BigML will vary depending on the type of evaluation. You can also list all of your evaluations. All the fields in the dataset Specifies the fields in the dataset to be considered to create the evaluation.
Specifies the type of ordering followed to pick the instances of the dataset to evaluate the model or ensemble. There are three different types that you can specify: 0 Deterministic 1 Linear 2 Random For more information, see the Section on Shuffling for more details. The range of successive instances to evaluate the model. Example: "MySample" tags optional Array of Strings A list of strings that help classify and index your evaluation. Note that their use is deprecated, and maintained only for backwards compatibility.
For example, to create a new evaluation named "my evaluation" using the first 50 instances in the dataset. Once an evaluation has been successfully created it will have the following properties.
