For Sale – Asus X555L Intel i5 2.2ghz for sale

[​IMG]

For sale absolute little monster of a Laptop which we originally paid nearly double asking for just over 15 months ago. Laptop is in excellent condition. The specs are good but in real world situations it blasts through everything. It even runs games well, my daughter has same model and plays Sims 4 on it every day without issue. No offers at all on this as I’ve kept the price extremely fair considering their selling on eBay for upto £340. Buyer can collect or delivery within reasonable distance, can ship at buyers cost which would be courier. Need the funds for car repairs (only reason for sale as otherwise it would be staying put!). No offers as already greatly reduced.

The Laptop still has the box and manuals and will have MS Office installed plus other premium applications (no bloatware). Cosmetically the Laptop is like brand new, no scratches etc, other than a slight scuff on the left mouse button.

Lilly strives to speed innovation with help from Microsoft 365 Enterprise – Microsoft 365 Blog


Profile picture of Ron Markezich.The nearly 40,000 employees of Eli Lilly and Company are on a mission to make medicines that help people live longer, healthier, and more active lives. But they know that developing new treatments for cancer, diabetes, and other debilitating diseases requires collaboration with the best minds working together to foster innovation.

That’s why Lilly takes a collaborative approach to discovering and developing new medicines—between lab researchers and the rest of the company—as well as with a global network of physicians, medical researchers, and healthcare organizations. Working together—creatively and efficiently—can help generate new ideas that fuel innovation. To bring together scientists across hundreds of locations and organizations and truly empower the workforce, Lilly selected Microsoft 365 Enterprise.

While Lilly is in the early stage of deployment, these cloud-based collaboration tools, including Microsoft Teams, are making an impact. Mike Meadows, vice president and chief technology officer at Lilly, says that the technology will allow for enhanced productivity and teamwork, while helping to protect IP:

“Collaboration tools like Microsoft Teams enhance our ability for researchers and other employees to work together in faster and more creative ways, advancing our promise to make life better through innovative medicines. Microsoft 365 helps us bring the best minds together while keeping data secure and addressing regulatory compliance requirements.”

Like enterprise customers across the globe, Lilly sees Microsoft 365 as a robust, intelligent productivity and collaboration solution that empowers employees to be creative and work together. And when deployment of Windows 10 is complete, employees across the company will advance a new culture of work where creative collaboration that sparks critical thinking and innovation happens anywhere, anytime.

At Microsoft, we’re humbled to play a role in helping Lilly make life better for people around the world.

Can value-based care models cut costs? Yes, they can

Nearly 25 years after value-based care models began, Change Healthcare’s just-released survey showed 100% of respondents are saving money using those principles.

The survey of 120 insurance company payers is Change Healthcare’s third effort since 2012 to understand what works — and what doesn’t — when it comes to value-based care models.

The universality of savings was a surprise to Andrei Gonzales, M.D., director of value-based reimbursement initiatives at Change Healthcare, a provider of payment, data analytics and a variety of other healthcare platforms based in Nashville, Tenn. “We expected medical cost savings,” Gonzales said, “but to have 100% say they achieved savings and with almost 25% having cost savings of over 7.5% was surprising. We’ve seen savings in our own work, but we wanted a more objective and quantifiable view of the impact of these programs.”

But Gonzalez wasn’t surprised payers were struggling to innovate and to move quickly. Just 21% said they could roll out a new value-based care model in three to six months, while 13% said they needed a full two years.

“Agility in healthcare is difficult, but it is possible,” he said. “With more experience, this should get easier.”

Payers were also frustrated with the technology underpinnings of their value-based care models, Gonzales said. More than half of those surveyed said their analytics, automation and reporting capabilities just weren’t doing the job. In many cases, these tools were custom-built specifically for the value-based care models, Gonzales explained. But as more and more initiatives roll out, the services can struggle to keep up.

The other struggle is to get hospitals and physicians on board with value-based care models, he said. “It’s not surprising to us how difficult it can be to engage providers in a value-based care model,” he said.

Busy doctors and staff can do a good job with patient care in their particular silo, but have a hard time looking across the spectrum of care, he said.

“But once they understand the problem and can see the data that they’re not doing as well as a competitor is doing and that they have to compete for patients, then they start to understand. That’s really where the work is right now.”

New HR tools for hourly workers, employee retention announced

This week’s crop of new products touches on nearly every type of employee: hourly workers, those with benefits and those too talented to lose.

Sapho’s new Employee Experience Portal 5.0 aims squarely at the growing — some would say underserved — population of hourly workers. Using a mobile phone, tablet or the web, hourly workers can manage their shifts, deal with time entry and even get access to relevant company information.

The goal is to make life easier for employees and employers, said Peter Yared, CTO of Sapho, based in San Bruno, Calif. “There is a seismic shift happening now around hourly workers,” Yared said. “Wages are increasing, and companies are starting to invest in IT that supports their hourly workers.”

One thing that makes HR tricky with hourly workers is the high degree of employee turnover, Yared said. Ideally, once an employee is trained, he remains. But training can be difficult in companies with complicated legacy systems, and that can lead to increased turnover. Sapho’s new platform could be a place where basic training information is easily available, Yared said, offering hourly workers an information safety net.

“The cost of training hourly workers is astronomical,” he said. “This is one place where an employer could potentially see a lot of ROI.”

More subtle benefits are also possible, Yared suggested. Not all hourly workers have cellphones with data plans, meaning they can’t easily get online to find out about shifts, changes in company policies or even to request a day off. The more easily an hourly worker can have access to basic information and company-specific news that could be important, the better the connection between employer and employee, Yared said.

“All of a sudden, companies are ready for this now,” he said. “They’re going to fix the interactions IT has with their hourly workers.”

Keep top talent happy

Limeade’s Turnover Dashboard now has a feature that can help identify employees most likely to be job hunting. With a strong U.S. economy and high job demand in many sectors, the risk of employee turnover can be high in some areas.

Using machine learning, the new Turnover Dashboard feature lets HR pros look at detailed data from different departments, locations or countries, and then break that data down in to subgroups, as necessary. Once the groups are identified, the platform can reach out to those at the highest risk of leaving with content and activities designed to increase employee engagement. Over time, the machine learning algorithm will grow smarter about what matters to a company’s top talent and provide more detailed information.

At the heart of this system are 40 variables — pulled from data science analysis — including Limeade’s Well-Being Assessment responses and activity on the platform itself.

A cloud-based benefits platform

EBenefits, a benefits administration company that is part of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s insurance division, has begun to demo a cloud-based benefit platform. The platform offers a way for employers to not only provide benefit choices to employees, but also to keep tabs on what matters most through the use of data analytics. Employees can research options, including standard benefits, private exchanges and matters related to compliance with the U.S. Affordable Care Act.

Nvidia GTX 1080 FE nearly new

As title, a nearly new 1080 8gb Nvidia FE.
Boxed and mint as new, bought just a couple of weeks ago as a replacement for a 1060.

Only reason for sale is that I fell for the compulsion to buy when they were available, and it turns out my 7 year old simply doesn’t need it for minecraft :) and as the wife informs me, we have more important thinfs to spend 500 quid on, not sure what though…

Bought direct from Nvidia, selling for what it cost me at £529, plus P+P, or welcome to collect.If…
