 Increasing SolidWorks Performance with Dell  Precision Workstations

 Cheap clones or reliable  brands? For some companies, organizations and even  academic institutions it can be difficult to arrive at a  decision on  what sort of computers or workstations  one  should invest  in. Clone computersor your DIY type  machines are  usually cheaper and can   be built up to  specifications  using varying components.  In    the long  run, however,  you tend to sacrifice on the quality    of  service and  support that you get from clone computer    vendors.    The parts that need replacement might no    longer be  available or sourcing such parts takes more    time than  you can actually spare.

 Before Pokémon Go Made it Cool: eDrawings Mobile was doing AR
Walk down any street in Chicago where I live and you’ll see people walking around staring at their smartphones with rapt attention. So what’s new, you ask? Haven’t people been strangely addicted to these pint-size computing devices for a while? Well, yes, but what’s different in this case is the fact that they are also holding up their phones in the air and using them to guide them to some seemingly invisible target. Strange, I thought, at first glance, but I soon learned that these people weren’t just interacting with their phones, but on the lookout for Pokémon characters lurking about in the augmented reality of Pokémon Go. Read more...

Personal Development
How People Learn to Become Resilient
Norman Garmezy, a developmental psychologist and clinician at the University of Minnesota, met thousands of children in his four decades of research. But one boy in particular stuck with him. He was nine years old, with an alcoholic mother and an absent father. Each day, he would arrive at school with the exact same sandwich: two slices of bread with nothing in between. At home, there was no other food available, and no one to make any. Even so, Garmezy would later recall, the boy wanted to make sure that “no one would feel pity for him and no one would know the ineptitude of his mother.” Each day, without fail, he would walk in with a smile on his face and a “bread sandwich” tucked into his bag.

The boy with the bread sandwich was part of a special group of children. He belonged to a cohort of kids—the first of many—whom Garmezy would go on to identify as succeeding, even excelling, despite incredibly difficult circumstances. These were the children who exhibited a trait Garmezy would later identify as “resilience.”
