Technology Predictions for 2014

Dr. Satwant Kaur Makes Technology

Predictions for 2014

The ‘first lady of emerging technologies’ believes medical
technology will make great strides.

Dr. Satwant Kaur, who will give the keynote address at the 2014 IT Expo in Miami later this month, has made stunning predictions concerning technology before now. These often include ideas that sound straight out of science fiction: software-defined robots at our beck and call, for example. However, she believes these fantastical ideas will be reality sooner than we think, and her most recent prediction could change the medical industry as we know it.

Dr. Satwant Kaur believes that in 2014, we will see great strides in computer-assisted diagnosis, particularly in regard to cancer. Dr. Kaur, who has made a name for herself as the “First Lady of Emerging Technologies,” believes that computers will so closely emulate human oncologists, that they will even be able to suggest treatment options to cancer patients. These advanced computers carry strange implications concerning human oncologists and whether or not they will soon become obsolete.

The valuable knowledge that comes from years of medical study and experience might not hold up against the flawless nature of artificial intelligence. Computers that emulate human processing could apply all the same knowledge, but without human error. A human oncologist can perform tests to identify where a cancer patient’s disease has spread, and analyze the information to suggest the bestcourse of action. A computer could potentially do that, as well as pull information from a database of medical studies to cross-reference and make a more informed decision; even a great oncologist would not be able to do that immediately.

These predictions, if correct, could mean exciting things for cancer patients’ survival rates and efficiency, but would hurt the human doctors who have dedicated their lives to healing others. Dr. Kaur, who has over twenty years of successful experience innovating in the arena of emerging technology—and is the inventor of Intel’s “Reduced Interoperability Technologies” for computing platforms—is definitely suggesting some exciting and loaded possibilities.

Dr. Satwant Kaur

Dr. Satwant Kaur holds a Bachelors of Technology in electrical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology in Delhi, India. She has an MS in engineering and computer science from Oakland University in Oakland, Michigan. She also has a PhD in enhanced Internet protocols for efficient mobile communication from Oakland University.

She has received many awards and accolades for her unparalleled accomplishments in technology,including: Intel’s 2009 Technology Innovation Award, Intel’s 2009 Outstanding Women Award, and IEEE EIT’s 2001 best paper award for her paper “Mobile IP and Implementation of Regional Registration”.

A Thrilling Addition to the Sam Slater Mystery Series

Greg Messel’s ‘Fog City Strangler’ is an suspenseful tale of intrigue and murder that satisfies as a stand-alone novel and follows Sam Slater, the protagonist of three other mysteries set in 1950s San Francisco.

Private Eye Sam Slater has a lot to worry about. For one, a murderer is stalking San Francisco’s streets, preying upon young blonde women. For another, Slater’s wife Amelia is a stunning blonde who works as a stewardess and also happens to be the face of TWA’s new ad campaign. With her face on billboards all over the city, Slater’s wife Amelia’s new, high profile status is poorly timed. As the “Fog City Strangler” taunts both the cities’ inhabitants and the authorities by sending a scrap of each victim’s clothing with a note to the local newspapers, Slater feels his wife’s high profile could turn her into a prize target.

Slater’s plate seems plenty full when he and Amelia are hired to find a missing woman, the sole
daughter of a wealthy dowager. The woman seems to have vanished into thin air, and the police
investigating the crime are baffled. As Slater and Amelia delve deeper into the mystery they discover that nothing is as it seems; worse, there may be someone lurking in the shadows who will stop at nothing to keep them from learning the truth.

Greg Messel’s Fog City Strangler is a riveting tale that perfectly balances the menace of a serial killer terrorizing a city with the mystery of a lost woman whose family desperately wants to bring her back home. The fourth book in the Sam Slater Mystery Series, Fog City Strangler is preceded by Last of the Seals, Deadly Plunge, and San Francisco Secrets.

Greg Messel

Greg Messel grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, so he is very familiar with the city his protagonist Sam Slater calls home. Messel has also lived in Oregon, Wyoming, and Utah and now resides in Edmonds, Washington on the Puget Sound with his wife, Carol. He has worked as a reporter, columnist and news editor for a daily newspaper in addition to writing fiction. Fog City Strangler is his seventh novel and the fourth in his Sam Slater Mystery Series.

If at First You Don’t Succeed…

Don M. Winn’s Award-Winning Book “Chipper the Clown” Offers
Children an Important Lesson: Mentoring Helps Us Succeed

January is National Mentoring Month, and the colorful rhyming picture book Chipper the Clown by Don M. Winn is a great way to introduce young children to the idea that asking the right people for help and guidance can make a big difference when it comes to following their dreams. In this award-winning story, author Don M. Winn tells the tale of a man who follows his dream of becoming a clown, encounters stumbling blocks along the way, and eventually succeeds with the assistance of mentors.

Chipper McGraff has a passion for making people laugh, but he is stuck in a job that is not satisfying. Winn writes, “Chipper McGraff loved to joke and laugh, but the work that he did made him frown. For the work Chipper did was fishing for squid, when he’d much rather work as a clown.” One day,
Chipper decides to follow his heart and join the circus, but his opening night is an embarrassing failure because the audience boos him out of the ring.

At first, feeling defeated, he considers quitting, but when he seeks the advice of the more experienced clowns, he realizes that by making the changes they suggest, he can be a hit. Chipper goes out in the ring once more and receives the reward he had been looking for all of his life — making people laugh. “The staff was excited and the crowds were delighted; they hooted and hollered and laughed.”

Chipper the Clown encourages children to pursue their passions in life. It teaches them not to give up when they don't succeed the first time, but rather, to be willing to ask for help. The author includes a short list of questions at the end of the book to help parents start conversations about the topics illustrated in the story. Chipper the Clown has also been named among the best in family-friendly media, products and services by the Mom’s Choice Awards®. January is National Mentoring Month. Help your child recognize that mentors are all around us, and can make a real difference in our lives.

Reviewers Needed For Thriller Novel

Immaculate Deception, by Donald Tucker, begs the question about divine dispensation, Papal politics and Catholic controlled courts.

Two years after executing a major sting operation that places Tony Masella, one of Chicago’s most notorious counterfeiters behind bars, U. S. Secret Service agent Wesley Charles receives an urgent call from the DC Bureau. Wes soon discovers that Masella, now released from prison, is part of a slick international Vatican-based counterfeiting ring of pedophile priests.

The Vatican is using counterfeit money to staunch the flood of lawsuits involving pedophile cases that threaten to bankrupt the Roman Catholic Church worldwide. World-famous couturier “Peppi” Giuseppe Tubiano and his lover, “Father Ira” (Philip Tuma), who is director of the Chicago archdiocese consortium of non-profit foundations, operate a global bank trading and counterfeiting scam, using the counterfeit money to pay off the courts. The Church performs “rituals of forgiveness” for its pedophile priests, retiring or relocating them to distant dioceses where they are free to continue their sexual debauchery.

Blackmail becomes the flavor of the day when Italian police officer Angela Micele, a smoky-eyed Sophia Loren look-like and her sexy friend, Maria Pelino, who works in the Rome USSS offices as a translator, cook up a plot to seek revenge for Angela’s USSS boyfriend murdered by the Mafia in a bungled attempt to bring down the Italian counterfeiters. Agent Charles, the two women and Maria’s cousin Nicky, a member of the Vatican Swiss Guard, pull off a series of elaborate high tech stunts in the final scene underneath the Sistine Chapel only hours after the new pope has been elected.

Although this is a fiction work, it is based on factual information. It is common knowledge that the courts are flooded with cases involving Catholic priests practicing pedophilia and sexual abuse. Few people are aware that these cases continue to go un-prosecuted while other non-Catholic sex offenders land behind bars with serious charges and long-term sentences. Immaculate Deception begs the question about divine dispensation, papal politics and Catholic controlled courts.
