Votre smartphone sera-t-il le supercalculateur de demain ?

Saviez-vous que vous aviez un supercalculateur dans votre poche ? Enfin, encore rien à voir avec le Sequoia d’IBM pouvant atteindre des pointes de 16 petaflops (soit 16 milliards de milliards d’opérations à virgule flottante par seconde), mais déjà l’équivalent des supercalculateurs des années 80 comme les fameux « Cray« .

Partant de ce constat, des chercheurs de l’université de Brunswick (Allemagne), ont mis en réseau via wifi des smartphones Android bon marché pour réaliser une grille de calcul fonctionnant à 75% de la somme des capacités de chaque appareil (voir l’article du New Scientist).

Le supercalculateur SEQUOIA d’IBM

L’idée derrière cette expérimentation est identique à celle qui avait fait le succès du projet SETI@Home auquel vous avez peut-être participé au début des années 2000: tout volontaire pouvait télécharger un logiciel à installer sur son ordinateur et qui allait effecteur des lots de calcul scientifique (en l’occurrence, la recherche de signes de vie extra-terrestre via l’analyse de signal radio) lors des périodes de non utilisation de l’ordinateur. Si aucune trace de vie extra-terrestre n’a encore été trouvée, ce projet a néanmoins validé le potentiel du calcul distribué sur un grand nombre de petites unités de traitement reliées par Internet.

Même si un smartphone est moins puissant qu’un PC traditionnel, cet écart a tendance à se réduire mais surtout leur mode d’utilisation est différent. Alors que traditionnellement, vous éteignez votre PC en quittant votre travail ou en allant vous coucher, votre téléphone est lui constamment allumé pour que vous restiez joignable. Les appareils mobiles d’Apple sont même conçus pour ne jamais être éteint (temps de démarrage très long, fonction « alarme » non disponible quand l’appareil n’est pas sous tension, démarrage automatique au branchement de l’alimentation). Au final, les périodes de non-utilisation de votre smartphone sont beaucoup plus fréquentes que pour votre ordinateur.

Par ailleurs, le taux d’équipement des foyers en smartphones est supérieur à celui en ordinateurs individuels : alors qu’il y a 1 voir 2 ordinateurs (fixe ou portable) par foyer, chaque membre du foyer possède en général 1 téléphone/smartphone. A ceux-là peut venir s’ajouter une ou plusieurs tablettes type iPad.

Etant donné le nombre gigantesque de smartphones et tablettes en circulation, imaginez la puissance de calcul cumulée de toutes ces unités connectées !!!

Pour se donner une idée, j’ai croisé les statistiques de vente des 2 leaders du secteur, Apple et Samsung, à la capacité de calcul de l’unité GPU (processeur graphique, source des données : Anandtech.com) de leurs appareils mobiles stars :

  • Apple iPad : Apple prévoit que d’ici la fin de l’année, 100 millions d’iPad auront été vendus depuis le lancement de la v1 en avril 2010 (source). N’ayant pas le détail de la répartition des ventes par version, je me suis basé sur la puissance de l’iPad2 : 13 gigaflops
  • Apple iPhone : environ 250 millions d’iPhone ont été vendus à ce jour (source) toutes versions confondues. Là aussi, je me suis basé sur la puissance d’une seule version, celle de l’iPhone 4 : 1,6 gigaflops (il faut quand même noter que l’iPhone 4S carbure lui à 13 gigaflops !)
  • Samsung Galaxy S : 24 millions d’unités de la première version ont été vendues (source) avec un GPU à 3,2 gigaflops
  • Samsung Galaxy SII : 28 millions d’unités de la seconde version du best-seller de Samsung avec un GPU à 7,2 gigaflops

La capacité de calcul théorique de tous ces appareils connectés est donc de… 1 978 petaflops (1015) soit l’équivalent de 125 supercalculateurs Sequoia d’IBM !!! Et je n’ai pas compté la multitude d’autres appareils connectés pour lesquels il est difficile d’avoir des chiffres précis (les iPod (plus de 300 millions d’unités vendues dans le monde), Blackberry et autres Nokia) ainsi que les toutes dernières versions de l’iPhone et du Samsung Galaxy qui sont sorties trop récemment et qui sont équipés de nouvelles puces  encore plus puissantes.

Le seul obstacle évident au développement de ces supercalculateurs distribués mobile est… l’autonomie. En effet, s’il y a un aspect des smartphones qui n’évoluent pas, c’est bien l’autonomie. Comme le détaille, cet article de Presse-Citron, reprenant un test de MacWorld, le nouvel iPhone 5 fait même moins bien que ses prédécesseurs :

Test comparatif de l’autonomie des appareils iOS (MacWorld.com)

Je ne connais pas un seul possesseur de smartphones qui ne se plaigne pas de la faiblesse de sa batterie. Et plus le temps passe, plus la batterie se décharge vite. Moi-même, au travail, je branche toujours mon smartphone en USB à mon PC et la nuit sur secteur.

D’un côté, la faiblesse de l’autonomie fait que l’utilisateur branche toujours son appareil mobile à une source de courant: l’appareil en charge peut donc effectuer ses opérations de calculs sans pomper la batterie. De l’autre côté, en mobilité, toute opération de calcul peut diminuer dangereusement le niveau de la batterie, ce qui représente un frein à l’adoption de ce mode de calcul distribué par les utilisateurs.

Tant que les fabricants ne s’attelleront pas à ce problème d’autonomie, la seule solution sera que les applications de calcul s’adapte à l’environnement du smartphone : activation uniquement en mode charge et/ou utilisation très modérée des ressources en mobilité.

  • article super intéressant ; le point clé est évidemment que les smartphones restent allumés tout le temps.
    pour booster l’utilisation calcul, les opérateurs devraient rémunérer d’une façon ou l’autre les capacités de calcul offertes : p ex en augmentant les points de fidélité….et on peut supposer que les opérateurs se feront aussi rémunérer les calculs fournis, que ce soit un gagnant-gagnant…

  • Le problème des smartphone c’est que pour économiser de l’énergie ils doivent impérativement limiter les calculs.
    Les logiciels se mettent très souvent en sommeil sinon attention à l’utilisation de la batterie et à la chaleur dégagée par votre téléphone.
    Cependant cet article reste tout de même intéressant surtout dans un futur proche.

    • – Look at this guy… on the American invented Internet, using an American produced Operating System, that’s being processed on an American designed CPU, so he can log onto an American web site to comment a thread related to an American television show , talking about how stupid Americans are because they pronounce a word differently. Is that ironic or what?? How about you offer something useful to the world.

    • If you keep going continuous it will throb some. I assume that it varies from persona to person, but you can expect moderate throbbing. I found that if it was throbbing leaving the bandage off for a few hours to let it dry out helped. Then once it was dry I applied another bandage with the vinegar. Seems to work like a charm. The black is completely normal. Supposedly this is the tiny blood vessels that feed the wart dying off. Mine went completely black as well.

    • So you think that Ulleungdo residents who can see and Dok-Do every day, take it as a zone of life don`t have the control of it? How sad are you? People who lived in Ulleungdo which was Usan-Guk was korean from 512 by Silla.When will you forget about 1900s imperialism? You poor right-wing japanese.

    • Hi Chloe, thanks for writing to us. We really liked making the fruit salad and eating it too!Our favourite fruit is the strawberry too. If you look at our ESL blog, you can actually see that we voted on our favourite fruit. The fruit that had the most votes would be in the fruit salad, and we’re happy the strawberry won. Pretty cool!From the ESL Group

    • Obama despises all that is good about America. He was never more honest than during his "You didn't build that" moment. His expression, his inflection; the true inner man was revealed. Clearly he was speaking from the heart, and channeling his college days garden variety Marxist. We cannot be rid of this cancerous administration soon enough.

    • "Has the Iranian government determined to war against us?"Are you serious? you speak like a neocons, i.e., a pupet from those very one that you want to denounce.At least, guys like Dick Cheney knows that Iran or Irak don't want a war against us, that's why they had to make up stories. Good blog anyway. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    • Update: I popped over to my local MAC today and ended up pre-ordering Sand & Sun, both Splashing and Flurry of Fun lipglasses and the 131 brush (the tapered duo-fiber… looks perfect for contouring or highlighting)! Sadly, I was two weeks before launch and the Marine Life highlight powder was ALREADY SOLD OUT! Grrrrrr…… Looking forward to the rest of it though!Oh, and for the record, Firecracker pulled super orange-red on my pale skin, it was a complete no-go!

    • I’m American living abroad raising a Morocca-American Daughter. She is being taught English French and Arabic. I have a MAED-CIESL and I feel that Caillou in french is not whiny at all. Of course I have not seen an English Episode but the French episodes are actually very good and educational for very little ones. As an educator I have found that the French episodes teach manners and simple problem solving skills for infants and toddlers.Perhaps the English versions are just poorly translated.

    • – if you had bothered to do some proper research, you would see that the world's oceans give off 90 giga tons of carbon, but absorb 92 giga tons – the oceans are a carbon SINK."If you bothered to do some proper research, you would see that CO2 is only 3.6% of GHG in the atmosphere. Of that 3.6%, man made contributions are only 3.2%. A grand total of .12% of ALL GHG is attributable to man. Water vapor makes up 95% of GHG. Accept Occam's razor: Is it more likely that our .12% GHG is more powerful then the rest of the 99.88% of the leftover NATURAL GHG?

    • I think it’s a great side job. Unfortunately for me, it takes me about 3-4 hours to write my posts – especially when I write for other sites. I think I’m too picky, and I am never sure of myself, so I constantly pick over what I write and make changes.If I didn’t suffer from that, I could write much more often.

    • Have you ever thought about creating an ebook or guest authoring on other sites? I have a blog based on the same topics you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my viewers would value your work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an email.

    • One thing is that when you find yourself searching for a student loan you may find that you’ll need a co-signer. There are many conditions where this is correct because you might find that you do not possess a past credit ranking so the lender will require that you’ve someone cosign the money for you. Good post.

    • « L’obstacle majeur à la paix est la colonisation de la Palestine par Israël. »C’est Jimmy Carter qui a déclaré cela en mars 2006.Alors avec la politique affirmée de Netanyahu de la colonisation libre, on conclut qu’il fait obstacle à la paix.En fait, il n’y fait pas simplement obstacle : il démontre clairement qu’il ne la veut pas.Mais on ferme les yeux là-dessus. Et on fait de beaux discours.Obama, celle-là on ne te la pardonnera pas.

    • Has anyone tried this that can say how it compares to Skindinavia’s Makeup Finishing Spray? I personally was very disappointed in the Skindinavia product- I even did side by side comparisons and not only did it not make anything wear better, it creased my shadow. I have been interested in the Model in a Bottle, but since it’s a mail order thing, I’ve hesitated so far…

I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get feed-back from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you!

    • The advantage of collective wisdom is lost when the culture doesn't respect wisdom, but gives their highest honor to fools, divas, and crooks.All things being equal, a culture that valued intelligence would have their most intelligent members sought after as marriage partners. Instead, any dumb thug is more attractive to a young woman; such choices dumb down the population.

I love how it’s clear that you made a large amount of time and effort in searching. I hate it when I study blogs that are 600 words long but are deficient in message. It is like they just want to wind you in and they’re not really offering something good. So appreciate it!

    • Purtroppo la mia allergia è connaturata al mio essere terreno, che da quando ho memoria sono stato allergico a qualsiasi cosa, animata o meno. E sul fatto di sentirsi la coscienza sporca anche in situazioni assolutamente cristalline, probabilmente è l’indicatore che denuncia la presenza di una coscienza: talvolta, chi la fa così sporca da non poterla raccontare, è il primo a sostenere di non averla fatta così sporca, eh!

    • Of course the history of amphibious landings shows that all landings with strong opposition resulted in heavy casualties for the attacker – no matter whose army/navy/marines undertook the landing.The same is of course true for air/paratroop landings/operations.When strongly opposed (like in Crete) casualties were very high.The answer is to undertake such operations only when you have air and naval superiority.

    • I’ve never particularly liked Consider Phlebas, but I did get used to it, eventually. I hated Excession at first, but got used to it, then really liked it. I can recommend:The Player of Games (my all time favourite)InversionsLook to Windward (kinda sad, but excellent)and many others. My all time favourite author is still Frank Herbert (the Dune saga).  Miles_Teg

    • in the book I just reviewed at HU that Kurtzman colored a lot of his own stories and in the case of his solo works reprinted in the upcoming book the color isn’t as prime of a concern—they can work well in B&W. With the Miller/Mazzucchelli work, though, the color is very well done and more essential, it seems to me…it is part of the storytelling, so a B&W edition will suffer from the lack.

    • Together with the whole thing that seems to be building inside this specific subject material, a significant percentage of opinions happen to be very exciting. Even so, I appologize, because I can not give credence to your whole theory, all be it stimulating none the less. It appears to us that your commentary are generally not entirely validated and in reality you are generally your self not even fully confident of your assertion. In any case I did enjoy examining it.

We are also brought up by the stereotype of being the “good girl” of not crossing anyone and offending people. And sometime we are apologizing for the success we had because we don’t want the other party to feel bad about themselves. Thank you so much for this enlightenment. May god bless you )[]

    • Cannot wait to read bonnies article. I agree with ‘anonymous’, joyful adverts can be very entertaining and trigger people’s emotions. On the other hand, since most of the adverts are trying to be joyful it’s harder to cut through this mass. I would even say it’s easier to get an emotional response with a sad ad.And there are some products you cannot do sad-vertsing for – imagine a dark and melancholy ad for corn flakes?! I wouldn’t like to start my morning with that.

Am I missing something?Thanks to Rufus (for this and the Grauniad, which was very enjoyable) and BD.

    • 27eJason, Forgive me if I’m misunderstanding your question. But I believe resting the veracity of the LXX upon Talmud text(s) is bassackwards. No, the various “texts” used by the “seventy” is secondary if not incidential to what God the Holy Spirit seems to have done through the seventy scholoars giving the Church the LXX…as testified to by Christ, the Apostles and the early Church. In other words, the veracity of the LXX rest upon what God did with it after the fact in history…not upon the veracity of the various Talmudic(?) text they used.

    • Kjm – your comment makes me wonder whether it's possible to find historical data on the total urban area within the US (in sq miles or whatever), and see how the trend you identify shows up in that data. The census bureau must have this data in some shape or form, right? (Unfortunately, in my experience the census bureau has the most disorganized and hard to navigate website of any federal agency).

    • 初めまして、きりんさん。共働きで3人のお子さんの子育てなんて、本当にすごいと思います。私なんて2人の子供を専業主婦で育ててもヒーヒー言ってるので…。以前に育児の講演会を聴いたときに、先生が言われていたことを思い出しました。「最近は褒める子育てが流行っていて、とにかく褒めろと言われるので親は褒めるが、感情がこもっていなくてとにかく口先だけ褒めているのが、頭のいい子には伝わる。」という内容でした。もし的外れだったらごめんなさい。次男君を心から褒めていますでしょうか?お手伝いをするのが当たり前みたいに思っているかもしれませんが、小学校6年生の男の子で後片付けを手伝ってくれるなんて、相当すごいと思いますよ!私の弟だったらあり得ませんでした。(ちなみに私の母もフルタイムで働いていましたが…。)あとは、「条件付けで褒める(=○○したからえらいねぇ)のも良くない。」という事も言われていました。お手伝いした時にだけ褒めていたら、「それなら僕はお手伝いしなかったら偉くないの?お母さんはお手伝いしなかったら僕の事を好きじゃないんじゃないか?」と自分に自信がない子は思ってしまうみたいです。たまには「お手伝いしてもしなくても、貴方の存在そのものが大好き。」という風に褒めることも、その子の自信につながるみたいです。既にしているのでしたらすみません。きりんさんの>まぁ昔からため息出るほど手のかかる子です・・・という気持ちが、もしかしたら伝わっているのかもしれません。けれど手のかかるガキ大将の方が、将来大成するという話もあります。(私の知り合いにはそういう男の子が何人か居ます。真ん中の子です。)犯罪者になるか大成するかは、周りの大人の育て方と、友人環境によってなんだと思います。偉そうにすみませんでした。

Det kunne være interessant at fÃ¥ afprøvet et par af de kritiske synspunkter pÃ¥ noget ude fra virkeligheden.

    • field fantasizes: A-merry-cans, as is usually the case, do not care about foreign policy.Nonsense. All they care about is their pocket books, and that is what will influence their vote in 2012.No one believe he's voting for a leader who will take things away. But, as those who voted for Obama should know by now, that's what he did. If a leftist commie helps to put steak and potatoes on the table; well then so be it.Yes, that will happen when a leftist commie invents the anti-gravity machine.

    • men dö pÃ¥ alla!! skit samma om man är snygg eller inte. varför ska utseendeet vara sÃ¥ förbannat viktigt för? När i helvete blev det en bra egenskap att vara snygg? När blev snygghet nÃ¥t att sträva efter och vara stolt över? Att vara lycklig, umgÃ¥s med bra människor, skaffa karriär och dansa pÃ¥ krogen utan att tänka pÃ¥ omsminket rinner är bra mycket roligare. jaglovar!!

    • MEAT makes up only 1.4% of their diet which in any statistical study or analysis would be considered as quantitatively unimportant. In longitudinal studies it has been found that 90% of all kills were by males? and as the females rarely hunt they receive a share in return by begging only after she allows him to mate with her. The importance of meat is that it is used as a political tool, which can also be seen by the way it is distributed within the group.

    • Isn’t it wonderful that we know so much more about the brain, and that knowledge is growing all the time? What a marvelous organ!Still and all, I must say that being absent from blog world for a few months has also made me wonder and think. Do we really need that stimulation all the time?My life recently should have been scanned – now that would be interesting!

    • Thanks Ann. I have recently begun to utilize these skills more intentionally as a way of keeping a cleaner home rather than letting it get really bad and then moving all the [insert « why-did-I-buy-this » item name] into the extra room when guests come over.I agree that it definitely helps when it is linked to familiar things — and I need to intentionally turn my focus onto remembering names. That one has been really challenging for me over the years.Thanks for sharing!

    • skriver:I truly wanted to construct a simple word so as to appreciate you for some of the unique techniques you are writing at this site. My time intensive internet look up has finally been compensated with professional facts and techniques to talk about with my best friends. I would declare that we site visitors actually are very fortunate to live in a magnificent network with so many outstanding professionals with great basics. I feel really grateful to have seen the web pages and look forward to so many more entertaining times reading here. Thanks a lot once more for a lot of things.

    • Anche oggi niente da fare…apertura altissima e poi via alla solita festa short. Il problema sono proprio quei due cadaveri, il più grosso in primis. Continuano a prendere grandi secchiate, e si sa se non si muovono proprio loro due assieme ad Eni l’indice non si schioda. Detto ciò, dovremmo prendere una direzione ben precisa da giovedì, Per la strada verso l’alto, domani ci vorrebbe un +4% dietro a non so quale notizia, per poi andare slanciati…ma questo è solo fanta trading, quello che vorremmo accadesse, ma si sa che poi…

    • Интересно узнавать как начинали другие свой бизнес. Это стимулирует, не дает остановиться, заставляет двигаться дальше. Спасибо!

    • Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Kudos

    • Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog. A great read. I’ll definitely be back.

    • 4a4142ona 26c6b8212fI hope you never stop! This is one of the best blogs Ive ever read. Youve got some mad skill here, man. I just hope that you dont lose your style because youre definitely one of the coolest bloggers out there. Please keep it up because the internet needs someone like you spreading the word.22

    • Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for your site. You have some really great articles and I feel I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please blast me an email if interested. Cheers!

    • Well, Mark I’d say that your donating drummer project makes for a great addition to your general site, but it’s not so secret. For me, it’s kind of about a “secret agenda” for good.Think about how you can influence people with what you’re doing that they might not realize they’re being influenced by.Maybe the donating drummer can have the secret mission of persuading others do something similar.

    • Oh ouiiii Marc, on en redemande!! Et avec un rythme plus soutenu, histoire de rendre nos journées plus agréables!! Bosser avec le sourire aux lèvres, c'est quand même autre chose! J'adore le passage sur Murray et sa mère, les infos te sont parvenues directement de qqes paparazzi british?! :)Vivement lundi, que Roger nous faisse quelques petites démonstrations de son incroyable talent! Go Roggggger!!

    • Aw Nicole, do you really want Office? Flip to iWork for a better experience or even OpenOffice for a compatible but free experience! I have the iPhone and can read Word, Excel and Powerpoint on that, iWork for iPad will be brilliant on the larger screen. By the way, I work as a consultant and almost always edit or share Office files with my clients, but I always use iWork on my Mac.

    • Anderson Luis disse:Emerson, se você está muito preocupado com a duração da bateria, melhor comprar outro. Segundo as informações técnicas do link que você passou, a duração da bateria é de 2 a 3 horas de conversa, que é uma autonomia muito pequena. No mais, não é um celular ruim para essa faixa de preço. Boa sorte!

    • I’ve got two books listed on BN through both Smashwords and Pubit. There are indeed duplicate listings for each book. But the retail prices are different.The Pubit book is selling at $6.99. The Smashwords edition is selling at $5.59.Of course, Kindle matches the lower figure. And I do still receive 70% of the $6.99 list price from Kindle.Just some other things to consider.

    • I don’t think that bookmarking will ever be out of date. We’ll always need a way to keep track of sites we want to revisit, sites that have good reference information, etc. Yes, finding the site you want is much easier, but I don’t want to search for it every time I want to visit.

    • Barry, I think that the paid servants are clergy and staff, but I know that Mike and his team have a HUGE base of people working in incredible ways to push the church to the next level of discipleship. They have unpaid servants that do everything form serve food to helping with sermon prep and daily reflections on blogs. It is really neat.

    • A force d’oublier son identité, Le Monde va le manger son « Chapo »!il boira la coupe jusqu’à l’alalie. Nous, pauvres lecteurs, il nous restera plus qu’un canard à l’orange où nous ferons semblant de croire à l’indépendance de la Société des Rédacteurs. Nous pourrons nous réfugier au canard enchainé. Tel est le but des décideurs et tout le monde s’en foot et contre foot. Le jeu est mondial.

    • I’m impressed, I have to say. Really not often do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have got hit the nail on the head. Your idea is excellent; the issue is something that not sufficient individuals are speaking intelligently about. I am very comfortable that I stumbled throughout this in my search for one thing relating to this.

    • Maybe I’m philistine :>) but that’s the first time I read something about Gladys Mitchell. I must confess that I’m interested in her books. Unfortunately I’m totally filled up with books. I will add her to my book list.I estimate it would be an advantage to read her books in order.Anyway thanks a lot for mentioning her.

    • вінськийігорМоже це трохи не по темі але вважаю важливим. Серед запропонованих фільмів немає жодного у оригінальному неперетиснутому форматі. І це дуже-дуже погано на мій погляд. Чомусь тільки мені це важливо чи ні.

    • Ce naiba sunt emo astia? Cand ii vad pe strada cu frezele alea stupide si cu hainele adunate de pe jos, incep sa cred ori ca au parintii sonati ori decedati.Cat despre capacitatile lor intelectuale, ma indoiesc ca ar fi ceva de capul lor, la cum arata si cum se comporta sigur au capatzana de forma.Cred ca ar trebui sa se organizeze un teleton pe Antena 1 sa ii ajutam, ca si ei sunt grav bolnavi.

    • Pensate veramente che le posizioni della Chiesa siano retrograde, razziste, o intolleranti? Io penso che ci sia un fondo di VERITA’ comune a ciò che le religioni professano, provate a digitare su Google : intervista Dalai Lama Dailytelegraph…io non penso che qualcuno si azzarderebbe a dare al Dalai Lama del razzista, intollerante, bigotto, retrogrado o cose del genere…

    • 1.28 – I most certainly am not removing all the comments saying they don’t like it.Just have a look above – 8.54, 9.36, 9.43, 9.52… I could go on. All critical.The comments that have been deleted failed to follow the very simple rules – be constructive or witty, or failing that, don’t post anonymously.

    • That's cool. Life is all about staying focused on your goals and rearranging things when you need to in order to get there. There are always lots of fun things, and sometimes not so fun things like colds, that like to get in our way sometimes. They're little pot holes that we need to learn how to go around or jump over.

    • Family meal planning is a wonderful technique that you can utilize and modify to fit your families needs. The idea behind this is simple. The principle of family meal planning is set up so that you cook and or prepare your meals ahead of time and then preserve them by either freezing or refrigerating them. Also, with family meal planning you can cook one large meal and get 2-3 other meals out of it!

    • Morning Mandy, Well, considering you don't care for doing this type of card, you made a fabulous job of it….I love it, please don't chuck in the bin, it seems such a shame….lol…..Glad you managed to get some sleep, nothing worse than back problems, it can drive you nuts, and your not getting soft in your old age, I think your a tough little cookie to put up with a slipped disc…it hurts…lol…take care.xx

    • Pasi sai äänen täältäkin 🙂 Olin vain aika ärsyyntynyt siitä määrästä paperia jota käytetään per äänestäjä; äänestyspaperi, pieni kirjekuori, allekirjoituspaperi ja iso kuori! Vaalisalaisuus toki sanelee säännöt, mutta eikö allekirjoitusrivejä olisi voinut painattaa vaikka tuon pienen kuoren kanteen…

    • « Je me souviens d’un psy grec qui analysait la situation économique du pays ».Pourquoi pas ? Mais il y fallait une vérification. Elle ne pouvait venir que du % de Grecs atteints de diarrhées. Si ce % est plus élevé que, par exemple, chez les Allemands, l’explication avait du sens, au moins en psychanalyse.Les statistiques sur la fréquence de la constipation sont également valables, il suffit d’inverser.Bien entendu, les statistiques ne pouvaient provenir que de la consommation de médicaments.

    • Whitney – I recently began managing a small User Experience team at Siemens Corporate Research in Princeton, NJ. Quite a bit outside my training (Ph.D. in Physics), but I have a strong team and rely on them extensively. I'm doing my best to climb the learning curve as quicklky as possible. I read many of your columns / writings and learned a great deal… thanks! Particularly enjoyed “10 most common misconceptions about UX design”. I cannot attend 8/5,6, but perhaps one of my team can. Best reagrds,Joe

    • Quisiera agradecer desde lo más profundo de mi hondón a este gran arquitecto, al que por cierto no tengo el gusto de conocer personalmente, su más que ferviente defensa de las teorías del cierre antiproyectual arquitectónico.Desde aquí quisiera animar tanto a don Carlos como a tantos otros grandes arquitectos actuales (Jokin Guti, Lazslo Krajijek o Gabriel Sismal entre otros) a que sigan profundizando en el campo de la antiproyectualidad como categoría analítica cognoscible. ¡Basta ya de falacias y embelecos! ¡architecturi morandi eljacta est!

    • They look great, I myself have also been obsessed with loafers lately, and monk straps, can't get enough of the monks. They have such a bad ass rebel feel and look. Anyways, I have also been searching for a nice pair of loafers that could be as versatile with dress ups and down. So when I recently purchased a pair of monks from the Ferragamo Boutique here in MIA, I did some looking around while there and saw some nice loafers. Oh and your flat looks great too, like the blue tiles.Julio

    • >もちろん爪で引っかいてしまうとか、ぶつかって転んでしまう等の小さな事はする>こともされることもありましたが、特に問題にはなりませんでした。気をつけていても、子ども同士で遊ぶと、手が出るようなことはあるものです。しかし、自分の子どもがされたというと、いやな気持になるものです。お互い様、という気持ちがあるので、相手にいうことはありません。先生や相手のご家庭に伝えるときは、よっぽどです。苦情が出ていることを真摯に受け止めて、対策を練られたほうが良いと思います。うちでは「自分がたたかれたら、どういう気持ち?自分がひっかかれたら、どういう気持ち?」と、相手の気持ちになって考えるように小さなころ(2歳ころ)から教えています。今、4歳ですが「別の子にたたかれて悔しい思いをしても、やりかえすのを我慢していました、えらかったです。」と保育園の先生に褒められるまでになっています。同じように、小さいころからちゃんと教えられているご家庭のお友達は3歳、4歳と年齢があがるにつれて、叩いたりすることがほとんどなくなっているように思います。逆に、お姉ちゃんがすぐに叩くようなお家は、弟もすぐに叩いてきたりすることがあります。もちろん、一様には言えませんが。でも、正直「なんでご両親はちゃんと教えてないんだろう。」と、思います。そして、すぐに叩くような子どもとは、仲良くさせたくないな。と思います。(我慢する息子ばかりが悔しい思いをするので。)4歳の子どもでもわかります。きちんと、暴力はよくないことだと根気よく伝えてください。子どもの喧嘩で許される範囲は、口げんかだけだと思います。手や足がでるようでは、(相談内容から、初めて手を出しました。というようなお子さんではないようなので。)大人が介入すべきだと思います。

    • Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just soshe can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    • What about duplicate content that is only a small percentage of the page? For example, my site has two pages about MPLS VPN. On the , it has one paragraph that is the same as another one on an . But there is a lot of different content as well. Would Google treat these as duplicate pages?
