    I’ve moved many files/sites between computer systems and so i are in possession of several copies of the identical file in various sites and/or on different drives/computer systems.

    Also, I frequently work between different computer systems, moving data having a USB thumb drive.

    I must have some kind of program that may identify and compare copies of the identical file and merely keep one copy. Previously I have used a course (AShampoo I believe) that could find out the replicates however, you needed to remove each one of these individually.

    Can anybody either recommend something in my experience or refer me to some source who are able to?

    Thank you

    The private sector is the component of the economy, sometimes referred to as the citizen sector, which is run by private individuals or groups, usually as a means of enterprise for profit, and is not controlled by the state. By contrast, enterprises that are part of the state are part of the public sector; private, non-profit organizations are regarded as part of the voluntary sector.

    The public sector, sometimes referred to as the state sector or the government sector, is a part of the state that deals with either the production, ownership, sale, provision, delivery and allocation of goods and services by and for the government or its citizens, whether national, regional or local/municipal. Examples of public sector activity range from delivering social security, administering urban planning and organizing national defense. The organization of the public sector (public ownership) can take several forms, including:

    * Direct administration funded through taxation; the delivering organization generally has no specific requirement to meet commercial success criteria, and production decisions are determined by government.

    * Publicly owned corporations (in some contexts, especially manufacturing, “state-owned enterprises”); which differ from direct administration in that they have greater commercial freedoms and are expected to operate according to commercial criteria, and production decisions are not generally taken by government (although goals may be set for them by government).

    * Partial outsourcing (of the scale many businesses do, e.g. for IT services), is considered a public sector model.

    A borderline form is as follows:

    * Complete outsourcing or contracting out, with a privately owned corporation delivering the entire service on behalf of government. This may be considered a mixture of private sector operations with public ownership of assets, although in some forms the private sector’s control and/or risk is so great that the service may no longer be considered part of the public sector (e.g., the United Kingdom’s Private Finance Initiative) (Barlow, Roehirch, and Wright 51-55).

    In spite of their name, public companies are not part of the public sector; they are a particular kind of private sector company that can offer their shares for sale to the general public (i.e., to anyone willing to buy them (as opposed to a privately owned company, shares of which can be sold to someone only if the owner of the shares agrees to sell them)).

    The role of public sectors are as follows:

    * The role and scope of the public sector and state sector are often the biggest distinction regarding the economic positions of socialist, liberal, and libertarian political philosophy. Generally, socialists favor a large state sector consisting of state projects and enterprises, at least in the commanding heights or fundamental sectors of the economy (although some socialists favor a large cooperative sector instead). Social democrats tend to favor a medium-sized public sector that is limited to the provision of universal programs and public services. Economic libertarians and minarchists favor a larger private sector and small public sector with the state being relegated to protecting property rights, creating and enforcing laws and settling disputes, a “night watchman state”.

    Again, which economic sector has the most volatility: the private sector or the public sector?

    I know you have to start at the bottom and work your way up, but how long does it take to become one? Or how much experience would I need?
    Also, what do I need (degree-wise) to be one? I heard you had to have a graduates degree. Is that true?

    It’s fun to watch people cry out socialism or communism, while at the same time appearing to know little about either.

    I want to known the opinions of people who have read Marx’s work. Do you think that the US’s problems lie with discontentment in our capitalistic system? Is the average American co-opted into corporate interests? Would a gradual application of socialist ideas into government do more harm than good?

    Coherent answers only please 🙂

    I think people on here have a disturbing allegiance to politicians and their respective parties.

    People on here seem to believe you are entitled to respect just because you hold a government post. “We must respect the president” You earn your respect just as anywhere else in life. I would have liked to hit Bush with that shoe, and if Obama turns out to be just as bad my size 11s are coming his way.

    Most Socialists have long rejected the idea that an economy should be centrally planned by the government, but we don’t want big corporate bureaucracies controlling everything either. We favor as much decentralization and local control as possible, and in fact, some Socialists think there should be no government at all. This could take place in many forms, including worker owned cooperatives or publicly owned enterprises managed by workers and consumers. While industries requiring large concentrations of capital, like steel and energy may necessitate some form of state ownership,consumer goods industries can be best run as cooperatives.

    We have about 50 employees, and about 100 total computers, including some enterprise level servers with large storage capacities. Most workstations are Windows based, most servers are Linux or BSD based. Our network is built on a stack of Cisco 10/100 switches. I would imagine the storage required for the backup would be between 500GB to 1000GB. I don’t imagine doing full backups daily, but at least every week. Are there standalone solutions that can be managed remotely? I would like something that I can plug into the network, without having to build a computer system to house it.

    by AFP News,

    China said on Friday it has jailed or sentenced to death more than 1,400 people for involvement in underground finance during a crackdown on informal lending to private enterprises.

    China has convicted 4,170 people on charges of “illegal fund-raising” since 2011, with 1,449 given sentences ranging from five years in prison to the death penalty, China’s State Council Information Office said on its website.

    It did not say how many of those were sentenced to death.

    The rate of “heavy” punishments reflects official “determination to crack down on illegal fund-raising”, the website quoted Du Jinfu, a Public Security Ministry official who leads a task force on underground lending, as saying.

    The others convicted received lesser penalties, he said.

    China’s state-controlled banks are not allowed to charge higher interest on riskier loans, making them reluctant to lend to small and medium sized enterprises, leaving business owners dependent on illegal loans.

    Economists including those from the World Bank have urged China to relax restrictions on lending to increase financing to China’s entrepreneurs, who have consistently generated faster growth than state-owned companies.

    China’s “shadow banking” industry, which includes private lending as well as off-balance-sheet vehicles and trusts, amounts to at least $3.35 trillion, or 45 percent of gross domestic product, according to Swiss financial firm UBS AG.

    In China, “illegal fundraising” outlaws various kinds of investment schemes, and the charge has been used to sentence private lenders.

    “The distinction between illegal fundraising and private lending still remains unclear,” the Beijing Times newspaper said in a February editorial.

    China sentenced businesswoman Wu Ying to death for “illegal fundraising” in 2009, provoking a public outcry. China’s Supreme Court overturned the sentence last year, China’s official Xinhua news agency said.

    Top Chinese officials in 2012 launched a pilot scheme to funnel more money to enterprises in Wenzhou, a business hub in east China rife with under-the-counter lenders who charge annual interest rates of 40 percent or even more.

    The city was hit by a debt crisis in 2011 when a number of private loans went bad, leading entrepreneurs to commit suicide or go into hiding, and sparking fears of a nationwide financial crisis.
