How to Recover Lost Data From SSD

How to Recover Lost Data From SSD | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

A lot of people are looking for methods for SSD data recovery, but most of them failed finding one. Now, we’ll work this out. 


SSD is the acronym of Solid State Disk, also known as Solid State Drive. Despite that the first solid state disk drive was developed by Storage Tek in 1970, it was not until the year of 1989 that we finally witness the birth of the first solid state disk in the world. 


 After about 20 years of development, the manufacturing technology has become gradually mature and the SSD has been applied to all walks of life. Though SSD has a high cost, it is gradually spread to the DIY market. More and more computer users choose to replace their old hard drive, which is relatively small in capacity, with a new SSD, whose capacity is relatively large.


SSD (Solid State Drive) is a kind of hard drive which is made by solid state electronic memory chip array. And it consists of control unit and storage unit (FLASH chip and DRAM chip). SSD is exactly the same with common hard drive in the specification and definition of interface, function, usage and product shape and size. The most obvious difference between SSD and the old fashioned hard drive lies in hard drive technology.

5 mindsets that set winners apart

5 mindsets that set winners apart | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
“five mindsets that set winners apart:1. They discover what makes them unstoppableYou must love what you do or you’ll never have the mental toughness to be a winner. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi coined the phrase "flow" as meaning a state of deep absorption in an activity during which your performance seems to happen effortlessly and automatically.Psychologists explain that when we do something excellent, that we feel is top performance, it triggers the feeling of "flow." We love what we are doing; and damn, we’re good at it!As a child, my favorite topic was history, but I decided to major in business because I felt it would provide more career options. Then, I became an FBI agent and loved the work. When I thought it through, I realized the common thread between history and FBI investigations was my passion to sift through information to get to the truth of the matter and create a picture of what really happened.How to make it work for you: Take the time to discover what it is about pursuits in life that truly engage you, and why. Be specific.”

This looks like a great tool for getting students to work collaboratively. Let's hope that Google can be trusted to continue to support it.

Greg Quinlivan's curator insight, January 5, 9:38 PM
It might also be a place for online teachers to create a space for each of their students or small groups to interact, get feedback, etc. Of course, the one issue is the blocking of Google by certain countries, including the PRC unfortunately.

How To Use Brain Science To Be Your Best Self In 2017

How To Use Brain Science To Be Your Best Self In 2017 | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Resolutions are often an exercise in wishful thinking. People rarely keep them, mostly because they’re vague about their goals and don’t have a plan for following through. But that isn't the only thing that may weaken resolve or slow progress toward a goal. Failing to understand some practical brain science can just as quickly do you in.

 

Neuroscience has shown us this year that we may actually have everything we need to stay focused, be more creative, remember more, and make better decisions—just as long as we can work a bit more with our brains, not against them. Here are a few things we learned that can take you closer toward being your best self in 2017.

while this presentation is really quite in depth (74 slides) it covers some important points. Semms like something that would be interesting to share with colleagues as it really covers a number of topics that apply to modern learners.
