Data Science and Machine Learning new package for old ideas

Data Science and Machine Learning are to extremely hot topics at the moment.
All of the bigger companies want to have Data Scienceitsts and Machine Learning engineers or experts work for them. Many courses offer information for these two.

While they may seem like two distinct world, Data Science and Machine Learning ARE actually extremely closely related to eachother.
If you've recently looked at the average salaries for Data Science Experts and Machine Learning Engineers you can easily conclude that this is a GREAT and NOBLE job.
Salaries that go beyond $110.000 per year on average. Comparing these to other software engineering salaries we can conclude that these two jobs are even more in demand due to the current hypes.

Conflicting Rare Metals in Technology

This article started by trying to answer the question "What are the components used in building smartphones and modern technology and how do they impact the world?"
This actually led me to a veriy interesting research opportunity. I was sure there was something interesting going on.
The deeper I researched the more I found out and eventually figured out it's a very complex subject.

The main reason for this research was Project 3 Researching and Presenting. This is a speech project for Toastmasters. The 7 minute speech timeframe made me do everything to the point otherwise I would have had a huge article. Note that the speech was even shorter than this article since I had to make a point instead of just providing information. This is one of the great things about Toastmasters.

I wanted to do a follow up on my blog post about the Mobile and Tablet landscape, a failure polluting the world with shiny new crap.
This time going into how this technology is built. I was sure to find disconcerning information and indeed what I found was rather sad.
I've done my best to minimize this article as much as possible while keeping the jist of it intact. At the end of the article you will find all my references and sources including some books about Rear Earth minerals/Elements.

My Toastmasters Experience up untill now - Why you should JOIN a toastmasters club NOW

Toastmasters truly is a place where you can develop certain skills which you would never be able to develop even if you attended the most exclusive seminaries.

No expensive 2 day public speaking workshop is going to help you as much as a Toastmaster membership will. And no, you won't learn how to make the perfect breakfast toast.

I'm not paid by Toastmasters International to write this. This is my personal opinion after I've reviewed the whole Toastmaster curriculum, program, membership events. I've even read many of the specific booklets created by Toastmasters International. I've come to this conclusion by comparing it to many other offers on the market.

I can truly state that Toastmasters is an truly benefical investment and a astounding way to help you succeed personally and professionaly.

Cryptocurrency hype - Bitcoin - Speculation - Waste of Resources and Time

The cryptocurrency hype is just a waste of resources and time. The speculation will create a new bubble that will probably burst anytime now.

This article as my personal opinion and take on cryptocurrency. I've been watching and studying the whole movement for quite a few years.
I receive invitations to work on cryptocurrency and blockchain related projects almost every month. To top it off I hear acquaintances and even relatives talk about it.

I believe that cryptocurrency was great for having provided the blockchain peer to peer cryptosystem. That's all.
All yada yada about great investment, Great market potential, anonymous transfers and everything else is a whole load of prefabricated PR and luxurious marketing.

Erlang Elixir Node Security Flaws

This is an ATTENTION to all Elixir/Phoenix/Erlang users out there that use distributed nodes or software that uses nodes. Whenever I talk about Erlang or Elixir you can interpret both since it's the same underlying system at work.
I'm not talking about node.js. But about the distributed OTP programming system that beats the hell out every other programming language.
All programming languages want to do distributed programming like Elixir and Erlang do when they grow up. I've recently started implementing distributed OTP systems and I'm still awed by the powers of the Elixir, Erlang and OTP ecosystem!
NOTE: Windows users... you might have to figure out how to do it with Putty:) There is an inherent security "flaw" which could lead to big problems if let unattended. Read below for more info

In November 2017 I discovered Elixir which is based upon Erlang. I fell in love, and from the first moment, I read the Elixir Getting Started guide (.EPUB file download) I felt something mysterious.
Reading the code even though it was for the first time AND it's a functional language made it feel right.

Why I'm not active on social media - a word about facebook, twitter, linkedin - Experiencing life from a different standpoint

Why I'm not on active on social media? Why don't I have a online presence on social media?
Dear Andrei Clinciu, we live in the 21th century. You NEED to be online. Your audience needs to know about you. You need to keep your followers up to date.

The above sentence might float in the minds of many people whom I know and I've told that I'm not really active on social media.

But why don't I spend time on Facebook, twitter, linkedin, 9gag and name any other modern social media interaction website?

I get similar questions most of the time from people I know and from people that would like to "connect".

It's a pretty simple question if anyone would think about it. However looking for an in depth answer means that it has a rather complex methodology to get to the right conclusion(s).

I've got the Perfect Elixir for your Programming

Elixir is perfect for prototyping, programming, scripting, and anything except desktop GUI.
Elixir has a simplicity and complexity that is perfect for modern development.

Breaking things down into smaller units, decentralization and modular design are all approaches to simplicity — so long as the unity of the overall purpose is not lost. Edward de Bono

The above was said not by a Programmer but by a Physician and the inventor of Lateral Thinking.

This article consists of my current view and contains opinions on certain topics.
They may seem shortsighted due to the fact that I won't jump into details explaining each one of them.
