According to a recent blog post, Microsoft announced, they have been quietly informing customers on the best way to migrate their data to an alternative of their choosing by Sept. 10. Support for new deployments or member creations has also been discontinued. No official reason for their decision has been shared by the company. In late January 2016, Microsoft offered Azure's DevTest Labs so that Blockchain-related services and partners can decouple the Blockchain technology from virtual machines. Microsoft's short-term goal for the Azure BaaS was to make available a certified blockchain marketplace. The recommended migration destination is ConsenSys Quorum Blockchain Service. Users also could opt to self-manage their blockchains using Virtual Machines.

"Dr. Good’s willing intervention and active interest in my development kept me in medical school and led me to become an academic anesthesiologist. When his career took a turn toward administration, his mentor, Dr. J. S. Gravenstein, took over. He convinced me to stay at the University of Florida, and a couple of years later, when I mentioned a need for a good introductory anesthesia textbook geared to medical students, he suggested we co-write one. So we did. Writing Essential Anesthesia: From Science to Practice together was an incredible journey. Not just through selecting topics and writing and choosing diagrams and writing and working with publishers and proofs and reviews, but through his innumerable stories about the evolution of anesthesia during his career and the story of his remarkable life. But that’s a topic for another article, or a full-length book, or series, on its own. Sadly, Dr. J. S. Gravenstein did not live to see the publication of the 2nd Edition of our book. Instead, two of his sons wrote it with me. But Dr. Gravenstein made me into the educator I became." Tammy Euliano is an anesthesiologist and author of Fatal Intent.

"I realized that training in psychiatry would give me the opportunity to understand suicide far better, and hopefully allow me to make a difference at an earlier stage. My exposure to psychiatry in medical school was clearly not enough. I was ill-equipped to fully grasp when individuals begin to have thoughts of suicide and when those thoughts progress into planning or researching methods – and then acting on them. As I thought back to the numbers of dead-on-arrival patients that I attended to in Detroit – dead by overdoses, self-inflicted gunshot wounds or stabbings, electrocution, asphyxia, drowning or jumping from tall buildings – I knew that I wanted to do more than pronounce people and fill out death certificates. Becoming a psychiatrist could help me save some of these despairing souls." Michael F. Myers is a psychiatrist and author of Becoming a Doctors’ Doctor: A Memoir. He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, "Training in psychiatry would give me the opportunity to understand suicide far better."

Think about what you might have learned had you been in the room with some of the most fruitful partnerships of our time: Jobs and Wozniak; Warhol and Basquiat; Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. That’s what our Meeting of the Minds series is meant to do: to take you behind the scenes to listen in on conversations between chief nurse officers and leaders from disciplines inside and outside of healthcare who are driving innovation. This week, we bring together in conversation two incredible leaders and innovators: Kathy Driscoll, MSN, RN, CCM, Chief Nursing Officer at Humana Inc., and Kathryn Tart, EdD, MSN, RN, founding dean of the University of Houston's College of Nursing. Both have formed a unique collaboration through Humana’s Integrated Health System Sciences Institute at the University of Houston to train current and future healthcare leaders with a focus on providing holistic and collaborative care to improve health outcomes. The Institute’s unique and diverse programs aim to solve complex issues related to social determinants of health: social isolation, food insecurity, homelessness, and access to transportation for the Houston community. And it’s a win-win. Kathy and Kathryn’s efforts are strengthening the skills of nurses and of nursing students, as well as those beyond the medical field.
