LA Port Strike Costs Economy $1 Billion Per Day

Yes, you read correctly… the current LA Port Strike Costs Economy $1 Billion Per Day.

Running for several days now, the costs to the local and national economy will exceed billions, that is if it was to be settled today. At odds are issues related to port workers demands for keeping work local and hiring practices.

Terminals are shutdown and ships are not being unloaded or loaded.  The ten day lockout in 2002 cost the economy an estimated $15 billion.  Many businesses are expecting inventory for the 2012 holiday season.

We hope the negotiations continue and that a settlement is reached soon.

Apple iTunes 11.0 Released Major Overhaul

Apple iTunes 11.0 Released Major Overhaul, if you are already running iTunes, you will be prompted to do the update.

Early impressions: iTunes is now faster and the look and feel are sure improved.

Introducing the new iTunes. With a dramatically simplified player, a completely redesigned Store, and iCloud features you’ll love—this is the best iTunes yet.

• Completely Redesigned. iTunes makes it more fun to explore and enjoy your music, movies, and TV shows. You’ll love the beautiful edge-to-edge design, custom designs for each album, movie, or TV show in your library, and getting personal recommendations any time you click In the Store.

• A New Store. The iTunes Store has been completely redesigned and now features a clean look that makes it simpler than ever to see what’s hot and discover new favorites.

• Play purchases from iCloud. Your music, movie, and TV show purchases in iCloud now appear inside your library. Just sign-in with your Apple ID to see them. Double-click to play them directly from iCloud or download a copy you can sync to a device or play while offline.

• Up Next. It’s now simple to see which songs are playing next, all from a single place. Just click the Up Next icon in the center display and they’ll instantly appear. You can even reorder, add, or skip songs whenever you like.

• New MiniPlayer. You can now do a whole lot more with a lot less space. In addition to showing what’s playing, MiniPlayer now includes album art, adds Up Next, and makes it easy to search for something new to play—all from a smaller and more elegant design.

• Improved search. It’s never been easier to find what you’re looking for in iTunes. Just type in the search field and you’ll instantly see results from across your entire library. Select any result and iTunes takes you right to it.

• Playback syncing. iCloud now remembers your place in a movie or TV show for you. Whenever you play the same movie or episode from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Apple TV, it will continue right where you left off.

For information on the security content of this update, please visit:


In addition the iCloud Control Panel has been updated to version 2.1.


You can download the new iTunes here for Mac or Windows, or via Software Update on your Mac. iTunes 11 had originally been scheduled for October but was delayed a month by Apple.

Shopping Comparison Websites, Bing vs Google Paid Placements

Shopping Comparison Websites
Bing vs Google Paid Placements

Google Shopping results are paid placements. But some are reporting that even Bing results are paid. Interesting that Bing would launch a campaign without checking to see what they are doing as well, perhaps this is changing and the campaign launched before the adjustments had been made.
read more here

Bing does have a disclaimer on search results for instance on a search for digital cameras, note that “Payment is NOT a factor used to rank search results in Bing.”, which implies that paid search results are included, but the results are not re-sorted based on it being a paid placement, unless you are looking at the ads on the top of the page.

There are other options if you are looking for a balanced check on price comparison:

For those interested Google in the shopping results shows this message on the right:

Products and offers that match your query. Google is compensated by these merchants. Payment is one of several factors used to rank these results.

Vibrant Health – Green Vibrance

Improvements to the formula are listed below:
There are three changes from version 10.3 – 11.0
1. Replacement of Hydrilla verticillata with Calzbone Cissus quadrangularis extract
2. Addition of grape skin extract
3. Doubling of vitamin D3 potency to 2000 IU per serving.

There are four changes from 11.0 – 12.0
1. Replacement of Soy lecithin with Sunflower lecithin from Germany. Anyone fearful of encountering a soy anti-nutrients now has nothing to fear.
2. Addition of Goji berry juice, 70 mg. per serving enhances antioxidant/antiaging properties of Green Vibrance.
3. The conversion of Tamarind juice and pulp powder to whole fruit powder to provide more complete nutrition in support of liver health.
4. Restoration of sea vegetables to their pre version 11.0 potencies. A shortage of Alaria at the time of manufacture of version 11.0 forced us to lower the amount of Alaria and boost the amount of Rockweed in Green Vibrance version 11.0. Supply problems have now been remedied, allowing version 12.0 to return Alaria and Rockweed to 100 mg and 50 mg respectively per serving.

What do entrepreneurs, mathematicians, software engineers, physicists, physicians, biologists, anatomists, angels, venture capitalists and bankers have in common?


Entrepreneurs dream and bring the dreams to reality. Physicists invent the technology. Electrical engineers design and make the hardware. Mathematicians create the algorithms. Software engineers write the programs for computers to process the data. Physicians, biologists and anatomists interpret the images, diagnose patients and prescribe cures. Angels start the entrepreneurs on their way. Venture capitalists fund the entrepreneurs to commercial success. The bankers take care of the piles of money the entrepreneurs, angels and venture capitalists make on bringing the technology to the health care marketplace.
On December 8, 2012, the Caltech Entrepreneurs Forum presents a stimulating and revealing program on the latest in technology and entrepreneurial opportunities in medical imaging. The technology is fascinating and the opportunities boundless. Don’t miss this great program.
