What is Big data analytics

Big data analytics is the process of examining large data sets to uncover hidden patterns, unknown correlations, market trends, customer preferences and other useful business information. The analytical findings can lead to more effective marketing, new revenue opportunities, better customer service, improved operational efficiency, competitive advantages over rival organizations and other business benefits.
The primary goal of big data analytics is to help companies make more informed business decisions by enabling data scientists, predictive modelers and other analytics professionals to analyze large volumes of transaction data, as well as other forms of data that may be untapped by conventional business intelligence (BI) programs. That could include Web server logs and Internet clickstream data, social media content and social network activity reports, text from customer emails and survey responses, mobile-phone call detail records and machine data captured by sensors connected to the Internet of Things.

Semi-structured and unstructured data may not fit well in traditional data warehouses based on relational databases. Furthermore, data warehouses may not be able to handle the processing demands posed by sets of big data that need to be updated frequently or even continually -- for example, real-time data on the performance of mobile applications or of oil and gas pipelines. As a result, many organizations looking to collect, process and analyze big data have turned to a newer class of technologies that includes Hadoop and related tools such as YARN, MapReduce, Spark, Hive and Pig as well as NoSQL databases. Those technologies form the core of an open source software framework that supports the processing of large and diverse data sets across clustered systems.

12 Ways to Conquer 2017 New Years Resolutions

This new year everything will change. I'm going to do better on my diet, lose 100 pounds, stop smoking, walk and exercise more, get that cholesterol level down, stop drinking so much, be nicer to people, and blah, blah, blah.

We've all been there one year or another, wanting to make changes, sometimes we do, for a couple weeks, and then we relapse right back to where we were before the New Year. Then disappointed, we may try a mid February 'resolution' or mid year resolution, anything to get us motivated to make that change.

The question is why we wait for the New Year to come around to make it happen. We don't need to give it a name, or wait for a particular time of the year, we need to "just do it". If there is one thing that I've learned its that people really do not like change.

We get into our own little bubble, and we are in our 'zone' our comfort 'zone'. That is where we feel safe, it's not perfect, but hey, it's what we've always done and we are familiar with it and good or bad, we own it. We deeply resent others telling us that it's not healthy, that change is good.

The truth is, life is always changing. Life is a series of little steps moving us forward. Most people don't like change, but truly life is in a constant state of evolving. Always moving forward whether we are prepared or not. Change happens.

Some people hate change and resist it daily, generally those who do resist are suffering because they know that their resistance is in vain, change will happen whether you like it and accept it, or hate it and continue to resist. If you doubt this look in the mirror, you've changed since last year, and the year before. Life evolves without your permission or approval.

Obviously, the only way to stop change is to die, but wait that's the biggest change of all. Maybe tiny incremental changes are not so bad after all. Each single day and every single hour presents you with changes. Regardless of our acceptance or denial we are constantly changing, evolving, growing, and expanding.

So if change is a common daily occurrence, one which happens to all of us, regardless of our desire to accept it, why not make choices for our changes?

Move into the direction of change without fear, without resistance to it and most importantly move into change with purpose, passion, and focused intent, with a solid idea of your direction and goal.

1. Clarify your goal in writing, be exact. This is your destination.

2. Pick a date in the future. (Doesn't have to be New Years day.)

3. Give yourself a couple of weeks to think it over, become familiar with the idea that things are going to be better (usually healthier).

4. Write down your plan; focus on those daily steps to be successful. This is your road map.

5. Be reasonable. Don't set yourself up for failure. Be kind to yourself.

6. Make it measurable, be able to gauge how you're doing.

7. Set smaller goals to measure incremental steps (How to eat an elephant? One bite at a time.)

8. Give yourself a reward for when you accomplish you goal. Make it good!

9. Some people enjoy having a goal partner, someone who is going on the same path, but you will have to decide for yourself if this is best for you.

10. Most importantly: Take five minutes morning and night, to close your eyes and visualize yourself already experiencing your goal, feel it, see it, be it. Imagine being right there, where you want to be, having already reached your goal.

11. If you mess up one time, just get right back on the plan! You don't fail until you quit!

12. Congratulate yourself and set your next big goal!

Naruto episode 488 Latest episode: The Last One

"The Last One" (最後の一人, Saigo no Hitori) is episode 488 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.

Chino confirms to Sasuke she intended to use the exploding humans to attack him and Konoha in vengeance against the Uchiha for driving her clan to the Valley of Hell, but ended up meeting him in the Bamboo Village. Her plans changed after Iō last words put Sasuke on Fūshin's track. Chino explains the Chinoike clan's jutsu uses blood, and that with the high iron content of the lake in the Valley of Hell, she'll be even more powerful. She uses her blood and the lake to create a multi-headed blood dragon, but Sasuke quickly decapitates all of its heads with his electrified sword. Chino manages to wound Sasuke, and as his wound closes, she uses the Ketsuryūgan to show him himself turning into an exploding human. Sasuke asks her if that's how she creates them, and Chino realises she's under the Sharingan's genjutsu, Sasuke standing on her blood dragon, which collapses. Chino envied Sasuke because he always had someone to love him, while she was alone from the start, which reminds Sasuke of Naruto and Sakura. Chino asks Sasuke why he still fights for Konoha, and he tells her about Naruto. Chino isn't convinced the world they want to bring about can be a reality, and tells Sasuke to kill her. Fūshin arrives, in bad shape, and tells Sasuke he'll have to kill him to get to Chino. Sasuke tells Chino his words to her should make sense now. Chino asks Fūshin not to fight, as she couldn't bear losing him. Chino wishes she hadn't met him in the Bamboo Village, so she could still hate him, and wishes to see the world Sasuke spoke of. In Konoha, guided by Hinata's Byakugan, Sakura finishes extracting the chakra infecting the exploding humans. They talk about the apprehension of the perpetrators, and how Sasuke wasn't there when they thought he would be. In prison, Kakashi meets Chino, Fūshin and Karyū, and Chino claims responsibility for the incident. Kakashi tells them the Mizukage wants to take custody of them. Mei arrives with Chōjūrō, and aware of their past connection with the village, wants them to help Kirigakure, as a form of atonement. At the Coliseum, Sasuke challenges all the shinobi, to earn them all their freedom. Chino is concerned about him fighting so many shinobi with kekkei genkai, but Naruto assures her Sasuke will win. After defeating all the shinobi, Futsu asks Sasuke what will happen to them. He says Kumogakure will take them in. The Raikage arrives with C, Darui, and several other shinobi. As the island of the Coliseum is nearest to Kumogakure, Kakashi argued with the Raikage they're his responsibility, as well as arresting all the Coliseum's patrons. A tells Sasuke about the time Naruto begged him not to kill him, and how he's glad he didn't. En Oyashiro meets up with Orochimaru, having escaped arrest. They discuss the Chinoike clan, En Oyashiro revealing himself to have the Ketsuryūgan, to be Chino's father, and to have killed the clan. Naruto and Sakura discuss Sasuke. Sasuke receives a message from Naruto by hawk, where Naruto says Sasuke protecting the village is like he's from the Konoha Police Force, which sparks in Sasuke a memory from talking with Itachi about wanting to join. Sasuke thinks maybe it's time to visit Konoha.
