HealthData.gov

March 23, 2016

HealthData.gov
http://www.healthdata.gov/

This site is dedicated to making high value health data more accessible to entrepreneurs, researchers, and policy makers in the hopes of better health outcomes for all. The goal is to unleash the power of private-sector innovators and entrepreneurs to utilize HHS data to create applications, products, services and features that help improve health and health care — while also helping to create jobs of the future at the same time. By opening up our data, the idea is to help catalyze the emergence of a decentralized, self-propelled “ecosystem” of innovators across America who leverage HHS data to help consumers, care providers, employers, journalists, local policymakers and others in ways that no one organization could possibly even imagine — let alone build, deploy and scale.

Breeze – Organize and Track Everything

March 23, 2016

Breeze – Organize and Track Everything
https://www.breeze.pm/

A simple tool for project management. Breeze was created because of a need for a simple tool for project management. By simple they mean that it should be intuitive, easy to use, minimalistic and made for people not for machines. They needed to know what’s being worked on, who’s working on what and how much time it takes.They are freelancers and consultants and have seen a lot of classical project management tools that are either too technical or complex to use. All of them have let us down. So they decided to create a simple tool that would be based on agile and lean principles and also would be usable by all our non techy clients. They created a tool that would serve the user – quick and responsive, simple screens, get rid of every configuration option that would complicate and distract you. Start using immediately, no setup required. The tool they created shows you what’s being worked on, who’s working on what, where things are in a workflow and how much time it takes. These are the principles that Breeze is based on and will use them when developing Breeze. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™.

Cold Turkey

March 21, 2016

Cold Turkey
http://getcoldturkey.com/

There are many useful distraction blocking apps available on the market. Cold Turkey is unique for two features. First, the app allows users to block websites and apps at prescheduled times (for instance, from 9 to 5 on Mondays a user could block Facebook). Second, once that time comes, Cold Turkey freezes the settings. In other words, once the time comes to block that Facebook account, Cold Turkey doesn’t allow users to circumvent the embargo through the task manager or uninstall while it’s running. Users are then left to do the work they set out to do, without the possibility of distraction. The basic version of Cold Turkey, which will satisfy most users, is free. While the app is only available for PC users at the moment, a Mac version is just around the corner. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™.

This page features a dozen historically significant papers on the nature of sleep, from E. Pfluger’s 1686 paper (in German) on Dyspnea and Apnea to four groundbreaking 20th century papers by A.R. Morrison and O. Pompeiano. Readers may simply select any title to view or download the paper in full. For readers fascinated by the complexities of sleep, and for those who love to go back to original source material, this site from the SRS is a virtual treasure trove of free knowledge.

Yandex Browser – Secure and Anonymous Browser

Yandex Browser – Secure and Anonymous Browser
https://browser.yandex.com/

For readers who are continually searching for the perfect web browser, Yandex could be a welcome find. The transparent interface will likely appeal to minimalists who like less visual stimulation, while built-insecurity functions are a boon to most users, providing automatic warnings about dangerous sites. In addition, the dual facts that Yandex does not collect statistics on its users’ browsing habits (which means more browsing privacy) and a special Stealth mode that does not allow websites to collect your usage statistics, will likely put users’ minds at ease.
