Packed with expert commentary and forward-thinking advice, this whitepaper arms you with the knowledge you need to stay competitive in the years ahead. The proliferation in recent years of transparent, sustainably conscious companies such as Warby Parker and Everlane has initiated a radical shift in the retail industry one we can expect to gain greater traction in 2017. Instead, shoppers have begun gravitating toward retailers who reveal all the inner workings of their operations.
Everlane, for example, details the entire production costs of their products: materials, labor, duties, and markup. They also include information on the factories in which products are made, complete with pictures and videos of the employees and factories themselves. Stores providing unique in-store experiences will thrive.
Retailers who can provide unique in-store experiences will be king in 2017. Finding ways to match and exceed the seamlessness of online shopping.
Most retailers are attempting to do this by creating omnichannel shopping experiences in other words, by bringing the amenities of the online world into brick and mortar stores. Customers can use the tablets to scan barcodes and learn additional information about products, to add items to wishlists, and to enlist the help of sales associates in gathering those wishlist items. As in-store experiences become increasingly important to consumers, we can expect to see more retailers invest in similar initiatives.
Retailers across the board will adopt mobile payment solutions. Mobile payments are the way of the (immediate) future. At the end of 2016, projections say there will be 447. And if the predictions are any indication, missing out on those sales could mean missing out on a lot of money. Businesses that are making the transition need to think ahead and seek solutions that will support contactless to future-proof their EMV upgrade. Consumers like to tap, and businesses need to set themselves up for success in this area.
With Apple Pay, Android Pay, and Samsung Pay continuing to expand into North America and globally, the importance of being able to accept contactless transactions will increase.
Consumers will expect to be able to pay the way they want, and businesses will need to evolve as their customer expectations change.Inference", description: "Watch this short Youtube video on the difference between an observation and an inference.

Though they were not perfect, the Congressional Budget Office's predictions about Affordable Care Act enrollment and costs were still reasonably accurate, according to an analysis by The Commonwealth Fund.
That's "reassuring," given the key role the CBO projections play in the formation of healthcare policy amid the ever-shifting variables of healthcare reform, the analysis says.
Here's how some of the agency's estimates match up with that of other groups and with the actual figures:Overall, most errors in the CBO's predictions can be traced back to the fact that its estimates were made before taking into account the effects of the ACA, the analysis concludes.
Once it adjusted its estimates to account for healthcare prices being lower than expected and incomes being higher, the CBO's estimates came within 18 percent of the actual figures.
Skip to main content document. The actual enrollment was lower than any group's prediction, with only 6 million enrolled by the end of 2014 and about 5 million of them receiving subsidies--though the total enrollment jumped to 8 million by the end of the sign-up period due to a last-minute surge. In 2010, the CBO projected that 10 million people would enroll in Medicaid expansion by 2014, a figure it revised to 7 million when the Supreme Court ruled that states could opt out of expanding the program.
The actual increase in Medicaid enrollment due to the ACA was about 8 million, the analysis found, making CBO's projection and the Urban Institute's the two most accurate after adjusting other groups' predictions on the same scale the CBO used. The CBO estimated in 2015 that the ACA had reduced the number of uninsured by 12 million, leaving a remaining 42 million uninsured.
Though it uses a somewhat different metric than the CBO uses, the estimate from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) was that 36 million people lacked health insurance in 2014.Get help Documentation Explore documentation for SAS software products.

The closer the score is to 1, the more anomalous the instance being scored is. That is, how much each value in the input data contributed to the score. You can also list all of your anomaly scores. You can use curl to customize new anomaly scores. Once an anomaly score has been successfully created it will have the following properties.NSW Railways 38 class, Part 1, the streamliners, 3801-3805.
Creating an anomaly score is a near real-time process that take just a few seconds depending on whether the corresponding anomaly has been used recently and the workload of BigML's systems.
The anomaly score goes through a number of states until its fully completed. Through the status field in the anomaly score you can determine when the anomaly score has been fully processed and ready to be used. Most of the times anomaly scores are fully processed and the output returned in the first call.
These are the properties that an anomaly score's status has:To update an anomaly score, you need to PUT an object containing the fields that you want to update to the anomaly score' s base URL. Once you delete an anomaly score, it is permanently deleted.
If you try to delete an anomaly score a second time, or an anomaly score that does not exist, you will receive a "404 not found" response.
However, if you try to delete an anomaly score that is being used at the moment, then BigML. To list all the anomaly scores, you can use the anomalyscore base URL. By default, only the 20 most recent anomaly scores will be returned. You can get your list of anomaly scores directly in your browser using your own username and API key with the following links. You can also paginate, filter, and order your anomaly scores. Association Sets are useful to know which items have stronger associations with a given set of values for your fields.
The similarity score then is multiplied by the selected association measure (confidence, leverage, support, lift, or coverage) to create a similarity-weighted score and finally return a ranking of the predicted items.
You can also list all of your association sets. You can use curl to customize new association sets. Once an association set has been successfully created it will have the following properties.

These developments will continue to take place as run lengths decrease, more versions and variations are required, time to market decreases, and ever-more complex and exciting label solutions are created. It is all of these demands and pressure that will increasingly see label and package printing companies move rapidly towards ever more automation of both their administration and production process workflows, using sophisticated management information systems (MIS) that will be integrated with specialized inspection and color performance software and technology, through to fully automated press and finishing line set-up.
In 2017, the European Flexographic Industry Association (EFIA) anticipates that the pace of change is not going to slow. Technology is changing the way consumers are shopping and the internet has opened up myriad ways for consumers to make informed decisions about what they buy. Competition to sell is therefore intense. The retail journey is also changing from big box supermarket shopping to convenience driven multi-trip shopping patterns.
Ultimately this is opening up a range of opportunities for the print industry in offering pack and product personalization, customization and premiumization. Brands want to add value to their packs to create differentiation. As a result of these trends, and confirmed by members and partners, EFIA is seeing a keen focus on stand out graphic design utilizing new tactile coatings and ink effects, as well as the use of complementary flexo and digital print systems to deliver short runs of customized packs.
Pack designs are being tested more regularly with sophisticated variable data to connect to digital marketing campaigns enticing the consumer. Further growth in retail ready or shelf ready packaging is also helping to deliver the in store stand out as well.
The message is clear: the industry is not standing still. The pace of change is accelerating and the opportunities for industry growth are significant. LED ink curing is set to grow substantially next year. Digital print has made product multi-versioning and label multi-language versioning easy and quick.
While over 20 percent of brand owners we surveyed said they do not currently source digitally-labels, they nevertheless say they want their label converters to have digital capability on their production floor.
European brand owners will also continue to demand higher quality at lower prices from their packaging suppliers, and are increasingly looking to the developing economies of, for example, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia as viable label sourcing channels.
What is more, our most recent Radar research confirms interestingly that more than 70 percent of them claim that they will not be migrating from self-adhesive labelling technology to another format over the next 12 months.
Sustainability will be a headline topic in the agenda of the entire supply chain. Waste management will be the prime concern of Finat and its sister associations around the world in 2017.
If the European economy avoids a slowdown in 2017 there may be some catching up and consequently a good 2017 for labels and packaging. If sterling remains under pressure, the UK will suffer from cost-push inflation and possibly a recession.
However, UK exports will be more competitive abroad, which could be good news, e. Within labels globally, we expect IML to be a key growth area and expect the leading players will roll out their expertise to new territories, building on existing multinational relationships with FMCGs which are penetrating new markets with premium products. Jennifer Dochstader, managing director, LPC2016 was a pivotal year for the label printing industry.
During Labelexpo Americas, we witnessed the unveiling of a new generation of entry-level digital production presses that allow converters to move into the digital print space at viable price points. We also saw companies showcasing digital inkjet retrofit technology, turning conventional flexo presses into hybrid print systems. Looking forward, the digitization of the industry will continue.
This trend will persist, however not only at the converter level. We speak with brand owners on both sides of the Atlantic every day and in the research work LPC does with industry associations, we are seeing a small number of consumer packaged goods companies and contract packagers across North America and Europe buy digital presses to vertically integrate some or all of their label printing requirements.
Digital press manufacturers foresee this trend growing in 2017. For label converters, in an increasingly competitive landscape, the core challenge is to constantly find new ways to add value to the products and services they offer. In North America and Europe printed packaging procurement is becoming more centralized. Some of the avenues that used to offer prospecting opportunities are diminishing. However, it would be nice if 2017 would give us a break to get our ducks in a row after the turmoil of 2016.
I see three tendencies: label customization and complexity, environmental sustainability and globalization.The scenery and natural features were exceptional and so accessible although I don't think Nordic Visitor can claim credit for that. We got very lucky with the car being upgraded for free as this made a massive difference to our driving comfort. We also got very lucky in that my dive tour of Silfra was private. I was the only diver with 3 dive masters. Overall we had an exceptional trip and were very impressed with Iceland, its culture, its people, its beer and its Geology.
We hope to come back. Thanks Arnar, you did a brilliant job and good luck learning to dive. Once again many thanks. The itinerary and road map provided by Nordic Visitor were perfect. Things to see along the way were clearly marked. Distances between accommodations were perfect, getting us in to each place at a reasonable hour without too much driving time. Iceland is a beautiful country, and considering the time we had to spend there, Nordic's itinerary helped optimize the experience.
It also gave us a good sense for what else we would like to see and do when we visit again. Thanks to Nordic Visitor for doing all the hard work, the planning, arranging of transportation and accommodations, and for routing us through wonderful towns and scenery.
Your hard work made our visit all the more enjoyable and safe. We could have spent much more than that, but this was our experience without feeling we had to be too thrifty. I really wouldn't change a thing for this visit. Our son works in Iceland and we shared this adventure with him. For all of us, this was a great adventure and the best possible way to see some of Iceland in a short period of time, and at a reasonable expense. We are extremely happy with the Express Iceland package that Nordic Visitor prepared for us.
We did find that we had to keep a tight schedule in order to visit all of the recommended destinations in the day-to-day itineraries, but that is probably the nature of the express tour. That said, Solveig did a great job preparing our itinerary (as well as marking our map), and all of the recommended destinations we visited were absolutely wonderful.
