Threshold Preview : Windows 10 for the Not-Very-Techies

As you can see to the right, I have started up a few of these virtual desktops but I wonder if there is a bit of work to be done.

Now I think that this is a great idea and would certainly appeal to me when I am working away from the office; but there is no mention as to whether this is also going to work with Windows 10 tablets that you then connect a keyboard to using Bluetooth! 

This is going to be an article that I consider “living” and I will update it as often as I can so that you can make an informed choice that you want to upgrade to Windows 10.

I tried out the new store downloading a few games and I found that for the games I downloaded there was no way to play the game with your keyboard. That is not surprising as most of the final code is being written and only some of the apps and features were included.. I doubt the Windows Store will ever be as strict as the Apple “iFranchise” but I bet someone somewhere with Windows 10 will eventually prove themselves to be a better idiot.

This great thing is though, this is going to make it so much easier for the likes of you and me to go out and take photographs using the tablet’s camera and then almost immediately publishing them to InfoBarrel and connecting the keyboard to do all the writing!

Task View

The first installation of the Windows Technical Preview took less than 15 minutes. Multiple Desktops

New in Windows 10 (albeit not to other operating systems) is the virtual desktop. This is probably an edition of Windows that you would be familiar with as Windows 7 (or 8) Pro; there are other editions available for previewing if you are more likely to be heading for use in an enterprise environment.

A Demonstration of ContinuumPublished by Microsoft

If you are currently using Windows 8 (or 8.1) –

they are giving you a free upgrade to Windows 10.

During the installation process there were a number of options that are clearly tailored to making it as easy for first time installers as possible. We are going to look at what is coming to a PC near you and why you should be considering your next OS upgrade.

There is one problem though – and if they don’t change it I probably would not use Task View.

To Tie or Not To Tie?

It’s Back!The Start MenuIt’s something I hate with Windows 8 installations. Continuum, from the demonstrations I have seen, show a Microsoft Surface tablet-hybrid and the basic idea is that when you attach the keyboard then it works like a netbook/laptop, but when you disconnect the keyboard then it will work like a tablet computer.

The Facebook app I also downloaded from the Windows Store is modified from the common mobile phone apps. Not good when you want to use the same computer and don’t want to go fiddling with ports!

If this is the intended feature then I can not see half of the point of it.

Windows StoreIf you never installed Windows 8 and live by your Android smart phone then you might not have come across the Windows Store before.

 Even if you don’t think you will use the new features; you might as well upgrade to restart the technical support clock!

For the new Windows 10 desktop though, our Start Menu is making somewhat of a return albeit with subtle changes and incorporating metro style tiles in the new install. 

The virtual desktops that are created are not permanent. It looks awful and Windows clearly needs to avoid a “one OS for all” policy.

As you can see left, metro-style tiles will still be size adjustable, allowing a bigger preference to programs you use the most or are more likely to need when you are inebriated and using the touch screen on your laptop or tablet.

Anyway….

The Windows Store allows you to install many programs and apps directly from the shop window like you can for your most popular smart cell phones; and for those that are already familiar, most of the apps and games seem to be similar to those found for Windows 8.

Something I am wondering though, because I have not thought about it while logged onto Windows Technical Preview, is whether the computer ports will work differently. It was clearly optimised for a touchscreen.

You see when I go into “desktop 2″ and open something like the Windows Store then it opens in all the later desktops. The rumor is that this preview is going to be locked down soon so not everything will be from the horses mouth (or rather my horse sized fingers) and I will also look to what everyone else is saying as well.

Now I should really bring in my good lady wife. I can keep all my games on one virtual desktop (I have an ever-increasing Steam library) while working on web development on another and my InfoBarrel tasks on a third.

Continuum

In order to tell you about Windows 10, also known by it’s codename of Threshold, I have played with the Windows Technical Preview that has been available to download and install for some time. When you log off, they are gone. The thing is though that Windows 10 is that it is increasingly tailored to be idiot proof like it’s rival Apple OS’s. Now that might be because I have opened up a number of virtual units, but then when I want to open a new instance of Internet Explorer the computer insists on going back to my first screens where I have an IE window open.

You can set up a user account that is completely local and I have yet to decide whether my Windows 10 administrator is going to be cut off from the online world. Simple slider switches asking you if you want to enable “Do Not Track” as default on Internet Explorer and whether you want Bing as your default search engine were prominent. Now the reason I ask this out loud is because I have recently been using a local server stack called XAMPP and the default ports for Apache (I am digressing onto web servers for a moment) is the same as Skype. She has said she like the ideas of a tiled start menu though, so when the newer updates are ready we should hope for this to stick around.

Windows 10 is expected to be one the biggest overhauls of a Microsoft operating system since they abandoned Windows Millennium Edition. The third party solutions on Windows such as VirtuaWin already offer a vast extension of the new Microsoft “feature” and lets be honest, if you are already a virtual desktop power user then you are probably already using Ubuntu or another Linux distribution.

Task View, which to be honest is similar to using good old ALT+Tab window switch, will allow you to switch through these virtual desktops. That means that some of this information might be slightly out of date while I catch up and see what we have here. 

InstallationIt was Quick – but don’t read too much into that

Now the most important thing to remember is that the installation process is definitely going to change. She is severely sight impaired and has to use her gadget and devices on low resolutions. The Start Menu was rubbish, otherwise known as non-existent, until the 8.1 update.

Windows 10, codenamed Threshold, is coming though.

As you can see, there is so much going on now with the new Windows 10 previews that I have had to start writing and as I experiment with the new features then I will update this piece as I go along.

It is worth pointing out that there is a new build which has been released in the last few weeks. I wonder if this quiet push to re-engaging users with Microsoft products is going to be a long term issue.

If you are currently using Windows 7 –

you will want to upgrade for free to Windows 10

If you already use Windows 8 or 8.1 then you will know that Microsoft prefer you to set up a Microsoft Account. There are actually great benefits to doing this such as easily accessing your Skype, e-mail and cloud storage with a single sign-on, as well as of course Microsoft also being able to selectively target you with advertising or storage add-ons.

If you are thinking that you will need different desktops because sometimes you use a Bluetooth keyboard with your Windows 10 tablet then fear not; Microsoft have thought of that too. I started at Evaluation Build 9841 which is the first public beta preview

Horse Racing Betting Strategies and Tips

At this point, some people like to spend some time on the paddock to see the horses being walked from the stable to the track, as it adds to the horse racing experience and occasionally one might notice something about a horse that influences the way they bet, such as a horse that appears sluggish or one that seems like it is in exceptional shape.

The following is the correct way to place a bet with a betting clerk:

Box Bet – Any of the above bets can be boxed for an additional wager. The point is to have fun, not to go home without money you need to pay your bills. For example, instead of paying $2 for an Exacta bet that requires the horses to finish in an exact first and second place order, you can pay $4 for an Exacta Box bet, and you will win the Exacta bet regardless of which of the two horses comes in first..

Exacta Bet – A bet on the exact first and second place finishers in exact order.

To place a $2 Win bet on horse number 7, you would say, “<Track Name>, $2 to Win on Number 7″.

Once you have taken the time to look over the racing program and the professionals’ advice, it is time to start figuring out which bets you would like to place for the upcoming race. Across The Board Bet) – Bets on the first, second, and third place finishers; each act as a separate bet.

Daily Double Bet – A bet on the first place finishers in two consecutive races.

To place a $2 Exacta Box bet on horse 2 and 5, you would say, “<Track Name>, $2 Exacta Box on Numbers 2 and 5″ (keep in mind that this is actually a $4 bet since you are boxing the bet).

Show Bet – A bet that the horse you chose will come in third (a show bet is also a winning bet if the horse you chose comes in first or second).

Trifecta Bet – A bet on the exact first, second, and third place finishers in exact order.

Win Bet – A bet that the horse you chose will win the race.

While there are a variety of bets, the following are the most common bets, and are more than enough for beginners.

The reason why you need to start out with the <Track Name> is because you can bet on horse races at many tracks from the horse track you are currently at, so you need to specify the track to the betting clerk.

Place Bet – A bet that the horse you chose will come in second (a place bet is also a winning bet if the horse you chose comes in first).

Win, Place, and Show Bet (a.k.a. To keep things fun and not risk too much money, most beginners make $2 bets. Never bet more than you can afford to lose

Do Horse Racing Betting Systems Work? by Martin Blacksheep

Doing it this way is going to take you 18 hours a day of research just to figure out which horses may produce the goods. When you bet on well priced non-favorites, you are effectively betting against the odds. What he’s referring to is consistently profiting week after week and year after year from punting. What you end up with is a set of very secure favorites that have an extremely high chance of winning. For a betting system, believe me, that’s pretty revolutionary!

If you want to be shown a step-by-step outline of exactly how you can use Ali’s betting system, How to ‘Place Bets’ on Favorites for a Living, to consistently earn an income from horse racing betting, then head on over to the website at http://www.horsebetpro.com

He then put these horses through a set of betting system simple rules to eliminate any risks they may be carrying. With How to ‘Place Bets’ on Favorites for a Living , you don’t need any prior horse betting or statistics knowledge. In the limited space I have available in this article there’s no way I can fully convince you about how much you can learn from this guys betting system. Plus it takes only 10-20 minutes to use on any race day. Its simply a matter of consistently following the betting system.

First off all let me clarify something, when he talks about making money from horse racing betting, he’s not talking about a few freak or lucky wins in a month. Its safe, quick and easy… Most never even try a betting system, something which is essential to actually make a consistent profit on horse betting.

I recently came across Mohammed Ali’s Betting system, How to ‘Place Bets’ on Favorites for a Living. He lays the complete betting system out before you, why bet on favorites and why for a place? The answer…

Don’t get me wrong.

Horse Racing Betting Systems – Do they Work?

Let me assure you that the betting system is written in plain English and it’s easy enough for a 11 year old to use. The twist is, you don’t even bet for a win! By betting for a place only you dramatically increase the odds in your favor. Few betting systems deliver on what they promise. This is a betting system that really delivers.

Everyone knows that the favorites have a high chance of winning a race right? What Ali’s system does is to select only certain types of favorites that have even a much higher chances of winning. However investing on certain favorites that have passed a set of Ali’s betting system rules will definitely set the odds in your favor in a very big way!

So the Horse racing betting system in a nutshell goes something like this:-

There are lots of so called Horse Racing betting systems out there. it’s so easy that at times it feels almost unfair. Its already been extensively used in America, Hong Kong, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, UK and most of Europe for over 13 years by thousands of people. The guy shows you how he maintained a win strike rate of 89.52% and a place strike rate of 96.35% using his own betting system.

Ali’ betting system can be applied to any gallop horse race in the world. It is theoretically possible to make a consistent profit on investing in high priced non favorites at the track. Does anyone really have the spare time to do this consistently? Call me lazy but why make things hard for yourself betting on hard to pick non favorites when you can very, very easily profit from the favorites! . Also why place betting on favorites is the safest and easiest way to profit from horse racing betting. You’ve sent away for stuff that never quite reached you, or you bought something and it didn’t live up to its expectations. He answers the questions of why place betting on favorites is simply the quickest way to profit from horse racing betting. I’ve been ripped off before with horse racing betting systems so I understand exactly where you’re coming from. Occasionally they will get lucky and succeed. The word here is lucky, in the long run they will certainly lose money. The majority of punters that lose money on horse racing try to make big sums of money from just a few dollars. I can say in all honesty that as a former frustrated punter it is well worth the time checking out this information. Ok now don’t go all skeptical on me at this point

Negative Effects of Gambling

The stress of risking huge amounts of money or the frustration after losing it can increase the tendency of abuse in gamblers. Sports betting and arbitrage betting are the other types. The decision to gamble money is based on three parameters namely; how much to bet, the predictability of the event, and the conditions agreed upon, between the gamblers. To add to the so-called merry atmosphere, gamblers often smoke or drink while playing.

You could be at gunpoint or holding the gun. When they lose the money they had risked, they further gamble to recover the lost amount and it becomes a vicious circle even they can’t escape from.

Initially, one looks at gambling as a way to run away from life’s problems, or from stress, anger, and loneliness. In spite of the losses incurred, they continue betting. A recreational activity is supposed to be refreshing and relaxing, but something like gambling is contrary to the very purpose of recreation. Rehabilitating the gambling addicts needs money and time, and the process is not very easy. On giving a serious consideration to the negative effects of gambling, we realize that it is best avoided.

? Studies show that children with a sibling or parent addicted to gambling, are more likely to take to substance abuse.

? According to a study by the George State University, 50% of the problem gamblers commit crime. Card games, coin tossing, and dice-based games are some non-casino based forms of gambling. Betting is a mentally taxing activity, and as one goes on risking more and more money, anxiety starts building.

? Gambling can lead to criminal activities. The two go hand in hand. Thus, gambling can have a grave economic impact which is difficult to reverse.

? The stress from gambling may lead to health issues like ulcers, stomach problems, muscle pains, headaches, and problems with sleep.

? Addiction to gambling has been linked with substance abuse. They engage in gambling activities at the cost of their time with family and friends. Thus, gambling practices cause a huge financial burden on the families of the affected and on the society at large.

? Gambling has proven to be addictive. Due to lost mental peace, they may ill-treat their spouse and children. It only leads to a thoughtless expenditure of money and valuables.

Compulsive gambling leads to bankruptcy

? A majority of those addicted to gambling have substance abuse disorders.

? Gambling at the cost of one’s job results in a decline in the quality of his professional life. The addiction gets on to the gamblers to such an extent that they fail to think wisely before acting. Some go that way to forget the sorrow of losing big sums when gambling.

? Gamblers often exhibit mood swings and a strangely secretive behavior. The addiction robs a gambler of all the productive time and leads to loss of efficiency at work. Their debt keeps building and it may reach an amount that exceeds their capacity to repay.

? As gambling leads to increased criminal activities, in a way, gamblers add to the burden on prisons and the legal system.. The addiction has negative effects on one’s physical and mental health and it proves to be detrimental to one’s social, personal, and professional life. The National Council of Problem Gambling (NCPG) describes this type of gambling behavior as problem gambling.

? The addiction to gambling can leave one in bankruptcy. It can drag you into crime, gambling isn’t fun.

? Research has shown that gambling can lead to harmful behavior in people. Over time, it becomes a habit, and eventually an obsession that can’t be overcome. The greed never ends and they keep betting more and more. It causes a decline in his/her work performance, thus hampering his career.

? Over time, the practice of gambling starts becoming a habit and begins to have damaging effects at psychological, physical, and social levels. In the following sections of this Buzzle article, we discuss the negative effects of gambling on the individual and society.

Gambling = Thoughtless Expenditure + Waste of Time

? They start borrowing money and take secret loans. This proves to be detrimental to their social and family life. The skill of a gambler lies in weighing the three parameters and making a decision about what amount should be staked and how much should be expected in return.

? People who fall prey to gambling tend to remain away from their families and waste money on other bad practices. ? The costs of treating compulsive gamblers are huge. Forget satisfaction or peace, it is not even refreshing in the real sense. The effect is similar to that of having a drug or a drink, which is why gambling changes one’s mental state and mood.

? According to the University of New York, in people with alcohol use disorders, the chances of developing an addiction to gambling are 23 times higher.

Mental and physical health problems, financial issues, and conflicts in the family are among the common negative effects of gambling. Six to eight million people in America are estimated to have a gambling problem.

? Additionally, rehabilitation and public assistance systems are taxed.

? Similar to how an individual keeps consuming substances like drugs or alcohol to experience an altered mental state, he continues to gamble. The addiction leads people to continue with gambling irrespective of whether they earn or lose in the deal. Their mental state can even lead to suicidal tendencies.

? Apart from absence at work and drop in efficiency, a common observation is that gamblers tend to steal money and engage in fraudulent behavior to recover from financial losses incurred when gambling, or to get more money to bet.

Games offered in casinos, table games like poker, Red Dog, and Blackjack, as also electronic games like Slot Machine and Video Poker are some of the common types of gambling. Because of this, they land in worse situations and take the wrong decisions in life.

? Problem gamblers and addicts tend to abuse their family members. It soon becomes a habit that can’t be broken.

? Children of parents who are problem gamblers or gambling addicts tend to feel abandoned and angry, further increasing stress and leading to strained family relations.

? An Austrian study said that around 1 in 5 suicidal patients had a gambling problem.

Gambling refers to the betting of money on an event with an uncertain outcome, with the intent of winning additional wealth. They tend to stay away from their near ones, resulting in distrust between them and their loved ones.

? Gambling is practiced as a means of recreation. Some take to substance abuse to supplement the high they get from winning huge sums while gambling. Addiction to gambling, coupled with substance abuse can make the gamblers physically abusive towards their family. A study by the same university suggested that 73% of the individuals who are imprisoned are found to be problem gamblers.

? According to a research by NCPG, 76 percent of problem gamblers are likely to have a major depressive disorder.

? Substances of abuse are served at casinos and in pubs and clubs, thus increasing the likelihood of gamblers consuming them. According to the National Research Council, 10 to 17% of the children of problem gamblers have been abused and so have 25 to 50% of the partners of problems gamblers.

? People continue gambling with the greed of winning money

How To Master Sports Betting

It doesn’t matter if it is pretty or not.

Speaking of the long run, this is what you should be focused on. It’s all about accumulating winnings. Hopefully this kind of thinking will keep you grounded. Travel is a factor such as when East Coast sides travel to the West Coast and vice versa. On the flip side, you shouldn’t bet against a team because someone you don’t like roots for that team. So do yourself a favor and swear off them. Business is business and you need to be concentrating on who is going to win regardless of who likes and who doesn’t like which team.

In the case of team sports, injuries are important. You will be better off for doing so in the long run.. Thus when you are doing well, you will still be focused and when you aren’t doing so well you won’t be thinking that it’s the end of the world. Information and doing your homework is important, but you don’t want to full into the trap of information overload. It is only going to place you in a difficult position and as much as you might think it won’t be, your decision making ability is going to be compromised. Also look into how sides perform the week after doing certain travel. You don’t want to lose money just because you weren’t on top of your game.

The most important thing is that you need to take emotion out of the equation. If you are going to do it you need to do it properly and master it, it means you are completely organized and focused. This means that when you place your bets you need to be thinking clearly and concisely. You shouldn’t favor a team because they are the team your best friend supports. The weather conditions also make a difference as they do in horse racing. What is the point of drowning yourself in statistics and research for what you could just as easily decided with a flip of the coin? So you need to sift through it all and just take the morsels here and there which are really important and make a difference. Upsets are always going to happen but see when it makes the most sense when to go for that and when not to. Anything less than this and it is going to be a disaster. For instance, if you are pretty certain that a side is going to win and they are getting good odds for this than take this. So if you suffer a bad break along the way, just remember it goes with the territory. You want to know who trained and who didn’t. It could provide great insight as to predicting what will occur.

Because of this point, it is probably better if you steer clear from any matches involving the teams that you like. You can’t let the highs and lows affect you too much.

Sports betting is an easy way to make a tough living. Over time, you will learn what it should be that you should be paying attention to.

Look for value bets

Mother of Chris Noth, TV journalist Jeanne Parr, dies at 92

Parr worked in television news in Wisconsin and Connecticut and appeared on the game show “What’s My Line,” catching the attention of a producer for CBS in New York. Parr, a former television correspondent in New York and mother of actor Chris Noth, has died. She was 92.

Parr died Friday in Hawaii, where she lived after retirement, Noth’s publicist said on Tuesday.

Photos: Stars we’ve lost in recent years

Jeanne L. She came to New York to work as a weather correspondent for the local CBS affiliate, eventually becoming a news correspondent there.
