This has nothing to do with MRI but this is really cool!!
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.
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:
- Surface Pro: an in-depth look at Microsoft’s super tablet – The Verge
- Microsoft’s Surface Pro Tablet Changes the Game – New York Times Blogs
- CES 2013: Hands on With the Microsoft Surface Pro – PCMag
- Microsoft Surface Pro hands-on – Engadget
- Hands On With Microsoft’s Impressive Surface Pro Tablet – ReadWrite
- Microsoft Surface Pro Hands-On: This Is What It Should Have Been All Along – Gizmodo
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…

cool stuff………..Great tip…………!!
iPads tend to come with rather limited storage (16BG to 64GB) and Apple places strict restrictions limiting the use of external storage devices such as USB sticks, SD cards and hard drives.
So what do you do if your iPad is full and you would like to bring a few films (ripped from legally-purchased DVDs) to watch during your holiday? Well, there is a way to do that without jailbreaking. It’s not without flaws and it only works with video files. But it works.
I described how to do this on a French forum a couple of years ago, and I recently noticed that my post got over 16,000 views! I thought it could be useful to translate it into English and post it here. Here we go.
How to externally store video files to view on your iPad
Firstly, you’ll need Apple’s iPad SD card adaptor. You can find…
