Mosaic Threat Assessment Systems

MOSAIC is an error avoidance method,

a computer-assisted method for conducting comprehensive assessments – in the same way that diagnosis is a method used by a doctor. An effective medical diagnosis results when a doctor knows which questions to ask, knows which tests will produce the most accurate answers, and then knows how to draw relevant conclusions from all the answers combined together.

Similarly, assessing whether a situation has the combination of factors that are associated with escalated risk and danger requires that you know what questions to ask, and then know how to consider all your answers in a way that enhances insight. The MOSAIC method works by breaking a situation down to its elements, factor-by-factor, and then seeing what picture emerges when the pieces of the puzzle are put together.

MOSAIC helps the assessor weigh the present situation in light of expert opinion and research, and instantly compare the present situation to past cases where the outcomes are known.

Free Windows 10 App Is Now Counting Down Days Till Deadline-Ubergizmo.com

Microsoft released an app called Get Windows 10 last year which pretty much does what the name suggests. It lets people reserve their free upgrade to Windows 10 as long as they’re running Windows 8.1 or Windows 7. The free upgrade offer is going to expire by the end of this month and it appears that the Get Windows 10 app now has a countdown timer which is counting down the days until the deadline, after which all updates to Windows 10 will have to be purchased.

But that’s going to change in 2017 with the new Apple File System, or APFS. Here’s everything you need to know about APFS and how it’s going to make your life better, no matter what Apple device(s) you use.

Future Now Certain for Oyez SCOTUS Archive; Finds New Home at Cornell’s LII – Robert Ambrogi’s LawSites

In 1996, Jerry Goldman, then a professor at Northwestern University, assembled a few dozen recordings of Supreme Court arguments and made them available through a website originally called The Oyez Project. Today Oyez, as it is now known, has grown to become the authoritative source for all of the Supreme Court’s audio since the court first installed a recording system in 1955, as well as an extensive archive of related resources. But with Goldman retiring this month from Chicago-Kent College of Law, where Oyez is now run, the site’s future was in question.

That question has now been answered as the Legal Information Institute at Cornell University Law School, the legal resource site Justia, and Oyez announced that Oyez will move to the LII as its new home, with infrastructure and technical support from Justia, which had already been quietly supporting the Oyez site for several years.
