Facebook held a big press event this morning. The company only sent out invitations last week, and when it did, it didn’t disclose the topic. But in a sense, everyone who pays close attention to Facebook has been waiting for this event for most of the site’s history — because the subject was Graph Search, the social network’s first truly serious search feature.

Like other great big Facebook-altering features like Timeline, Graph Search isn’t being unleashed in one fell swoop. It’s a beta for now, and only a minuscule percentage of users will get it immediately. (Everyone else can get on the waitlist at facebook.com/graphsearch.) Still, its arrival in even limited form is an important moment.

Graph Search lets you enter plain-English concepts that tie together multiple things the social network knows about the people who use it: where they live, where they work, where they’ve taken photos and…

Employment of radiologic technologists is expected to grow by 28 percent between 2010 and 2020, faster than the average for all occupations.

An increasing aging population will have more medical conditions, such as breaks and fractures caused by osteoporosis, which require imaging to diagnose and treat. Radiologic technologists will be needed to maintain and use the diagnostic equipment.

Although hospitals will remain the main employer of radiologic technologists, a number of new jobs will be in physicians’ offices and in imaging centers. Employment in these healthcare settings is expected to increase because of the shift toward outpatient care whenever possible. Outpatient care is encouraged by third-party payers as a cost-saving measure and is made possible by technological advances, such as less expensive equipment, which allow for more procedures to be done outside of hospitals.

Job Prospects
Radiologic technologists with multiple certifications will have the best job prospects.

Surface……a Game changer!!

So lots of sites are reporting on their initial impressions of the Surface Pro following a limited press hands-on event at a hotel suite in Vegas while CES was going on this week.  By a lot I mean just about every major tech blog/site.  Here’s a few I rounded up:

All of these reviews tend to be positive takes on the device.  Much is left to be seen (battery life, performance comparisons, etc.) but I think it is safe to say that this device has…
