7 secrets of Vishnu

  1. One shouldn’t forget spiritual reality when material reality abounds.
  2. One shouldn’t confuse “what I have” with “what I am”.

Creativity – rearranging what we know in order to find out what we do not know.

Creativity, it could be said, consists largely of rearranging what we know in order to find out what we do not know. Rearrangement usually offers countless alternatives for ideas, goods, and services. A baseball manager, for example, can shuffle his lineup 362,880 times

Take ordinary words and rearrange the letters to create new words that will surprise and startle you. For example, if life gives you limes, rearrange the letters of limes into smile 🙂 Other examples:

ASTRONOMER: When you rearrange the letters, it becomes:

MOON STARER

ELECTION RESULTS: When you rearrange the letters:

LIES – LET’S RECOUNT

SLOT MACHINES: When you rearrange the letters:

CASH LOST IN ME

ANIMOSITY: When you rearrange the letters:

IS NO AMITY

DORMITORY: When you rearrange the letters:

DIRTY ROOM

PRESBYTERIAN: When you rearrange the letters:

BEST IN PRAYER

THE EYES: When you rearrange the letters:

THEY SEE

THE MORSE CODE: When you rearrange the letters:

HERE COME DOTS

SNOOZE ALARMS: When you rearrange the letters.

ALAS! NO MORE Z ‘S

ELEVEN PLUS TWO: When you rearrange the letters:

TWELVE PLUS ONE

A DECIMAL POINT: When you rearrange the letters:

I’M A DOT IN PLACE

DESPERATION: When you rearrange the letters:

A ROPE ENDS IT

Peter Drucker Quotes

1. “Doing the right thing is more important than doing the thing right.”

2. “If you want something new, you have to stop doing something old.”

3. “There is nothing quite so useless as doing with great efficiency something that should not be done at all.”

4. “What gets measured gets improved.”

5. “Results are gained by exploiting opportunities, not by solving problems.”

6. “So much of what we call management consists of making it difficult for people to work.”

7. “People who don’t take risks generally make about two big mistakes a year. People who do take risks generally make about two big mistakes a year.”

8. “Meetings are by definition a concession to a deficient organization. For one either meets or one works. One cannot do both at the same time.”

9. “Long-range planning does not deal with the future decisions, but with the future of present decisions.”

10. “Management is doing things right. Leadership is doing the right things”

Configure an enterprise Managed app via Apple MDM

http://blogs.vmware.com/euc/2014/07/vmware-box-partner-bring-new-framework.html

The above article proposes a new and unique integration that moves beyond SDKs and uses a “less complex, standards-based model that provides a framework for sending additional configuration settings such as user information and preferences, single sign-on (SSO) configuration, and security controls, among other settings, for centralized policy management.

By eliminating vendor-specific SDKs for third party applications and MDM environments, this new approach will create a more scalable ecosystem.

We can use the ability in MDM to pass down configuration data down to managed apps and then also get feedback from the app in response.

That way, EMM can push down Box as a “Managed app” and then use NSUserDefaults to pass down configuration.

And it’s standards-based, because any MDM vendor can do the same with no change required on Box end.

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/20752254/using-mdm-to-configure-an-enterprise-app-via-nsuserdefaults

Managed app configuration changes that are pushed down from an MDM server appear in NSUSerDefaults so you can add an observer to be alerted of any changes to NSUserDefaults. The Managed app configuration dictionary pushed down from the MDM server is stored in the key named: com.apple.configuration.managed

Your application can also send a dictionary containing the feedback to the MDM server. The dictionary that is sent back to the MDM server as feedback must be stored in this key com.apple.feedback.managed

In order to test all of this you would need a device that is managed by an MDM server and the application must be installed by the MDM server that supports ApplicationConfiguration setting and ManagedApplicationFeedback commands.

The sample application’s readme.txt file recommends seeing the WWDC 2013 Session 301 “Extending Your Apps for Enterprise and Education Use” for a demo of this application.
