Intelligent Search Lifecycle Architecture for Mass Media ...

Mass communication in general and mass media specifically confront rising challenges to collect information faster at lower cost. These challenges must be coordinated with organization’s strategic, tactical, and operational needs via the alignment of Information Technology (IT) with the business strategy. A successful IT strategic plan is based on four main priorities. These are IT-Mass media alignment escalation, IT governance enhancement, IT significance improvement, and IT investments grade. In this study, the IT strategic plan follows a timetable via a roadmap and is exposed to alteration based on the business process changes. The development of IT strategic plan consists of five phases. These phases include the purpose of the plan, the business requirement, and the business requirements’ validation. The phases also include the procedures needed for eliminating the gaps between the state of “to be” and the IT processes state, and the plan approval. The ultimate goal is a Modern Mass Media Industry. This paper provides an innovative solution to accomplish this goal by accelerating mass media processes time. The process’ time is accelerated via an Intelligent Search Lifecycle Architecture (ISLA); which integrates Search Engine, Information Extraction, Information Retrieval, Data Mining and Data Warehouse using Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). The design methodology of the study of this solution is a post-positivist approach to empirical research. A prototype is created and examined in order to validate the concepts.  (Oct 26, 2012 | post #1)

Time Explained

Hold your hands up. See that gap between them? That's a space, and you can see it’s there, even though you can't see the space itself. Now waggle those hands. That's motion, and you can see that’s there too. But can you see time? No. Can you see time flowing? No. Can you see any travelling through time? No. These phrases are just figures of speech. There’s no scientific evidence for time flowing or time travel. Time travel is science fiction, and it’s going to stay that way forever because travelling back in time is impossible. It’s impossible because we don’t even travel forward in time, not really. To understand this, think about a stasis box. That’s science fiction too. It’s the ultimate refrigerator. No motion occurs inside the box, so when I put you inside one, electromagnetic phenomena don’t propagate. So you can’t see, you can’t hear, and you can’t even think. Hence when I open the door 5 years later, to you it’s like I opened the door just as soon as I closed it. And get this: you “travelled” to the future by not moving at all. Instead everything else did. And that motion wasn’t through time, and it wasn’t through spacetime, it was through space. Yes, the stasis box is fighting fire with fire, but don’t forget, we can freeze embryos now, so “in the future” maybe we’ll be able to freeze an adult. Then you could “travel” to the future by stepping into a freezer. But you aren’t really travelling. You aren’t moving. Everything else is. That’s the size of it. Time is very simple, once you get it. But “getting it” is so very difficult. That’s because for most people, the current concept of time is so deeply ingrained, from childhood in a catch ‘em young way. They’re locked into a conviction that days pass, that time flows, and that a journey takes a length of time. It takes some steely rationality to break out of this, but it can be done. ( This post is quoted from phbpp physics discussion forum, I’m very interested in this post. I want to explore more of it. Anybody’s comment is welcome.)  (Oct 26, 2012 | post #1)
