top Ask Slashdot: How Can I Improve My Memory For Study?
There are 3 things you need to do to become an exceptional college student and I will not charge you a dime for this extremely valuable information. Let us begin:
1. Begin a disciplined exercise regimen that consists of sustained aerobic activity every day. Cross-training is fine and even preferred. Run, bike, swim, walk, climb, engage in a bit of hanky-panky, etc. Read the book "Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain" by John Ratey for inspiration. Sleep is a natural side-effect of vigorous exercise. Exercise is good for the brain.
2. Learn MindMapping (The Buzan way) and begin to take notes in this fashion. Mindmaps use a basic ordering idea and radiate out from the center. It is an efficient and very effective way to capture important points. More importantly, it helps to instantly cull away non-essentials. MindMap the textbook. Mindmap the lecture.
3. Cure your addictions. Whether it be nicotine, Alcohol or even processed sugar. Read Allen Carr's "EasyWay" to quit smoking/drinking/overeating. A 25 year old is resistant to the self inflicted poisons of youth (Beer, Cigs, etc) At 35, your body is spending a lot of it's precious energy dealing with toxicity and withdrawal. There is no morality play here. Simple Science. Alcohol, for instance, is a highly toxic poison. let that go. You will be much happier.
This will make you stronger, smarter, sexier and wealthier and will probably make you live longer.

top Oculus Rift Loses Doom 3 BFG Edition From Launch Package, But Gains TF2
I have not seen it and I am actually intrigued by it. Thought the history of VR Googles was kinda funny though:
it's different than Sega VR, Nintendo Virtual boy and Google Glasses.
It is SPECIAL
in ways I don't even dream of knowing how. it is special in wonderous, magnificient ways. ways beyond human understanding or comprehension.
it RIFTS your OCULUS and other some such.
when you look from your own eyeballs it makes you think you are in DOOM LAND (or mario land or some other land that is not your own plain-old boring land)
VR land is better than reality because we all know that immersion is the name of the game here.
please don't reach out and touch OCULUS land for it is covered in magical patent juice and will make your children bleed money.

Perhaps now, someone in the ivory tower will see how vulnerable we really are.
This is not a 'china is bad' story but rather a 'US Corporate Security Sucks' story and it should be.

Right now, I am sad to report, we are not.

top Cisco Pricing Undercut By $100M In Big Cal State University Network Project
I did not read the article. Just want to state that Cisco typically does not bid directly on projects like this.
A 'partner' (Service Provider like AT&T or Century Link. An integrator like Northrop Grumman or WWT)
Would bid on this. They get (Managed Solutions Partner) Discounts that they would bake into the RFP response.
Some of these discounts are as high as 65-70%, depending on the product, competitive landscape and so-on.
I would take this price comparison with a big grain of salt. There is more here than meets the eye.
