I was making minor revisions to Surrogate Key Illusions when I ran across this: How To Find Duplicate Addresses For A PhysicianRowID.
1. Quote of the Week
The entire Information Technology industry is still stuck in 1971 with Dr. Codd's 3rd Normal form ... when 3 more exist and now a 7th or (N) Normal Form ... Dr. Codd, created, devised, extrapolated 6 forms of Data NORMALIZATION, and after 45 years (1971), every single Database system or information management system to date has not exceeded the 3rd normal Form... except AtomicDB, (N) Normal Form improving on Dr. Codd's work by 4 levels(dimensions)at the very least ... There was and is a method to his theory, that with each level of Normalization brings a geometric increase in "Efficiency" and scalability, however, no one has even attempted the restrictions of the 4th normal form (no duplicates) let alone the 5th or 6th, and now with Dr. Everett’s (N)th Normal form, we can do anything the human mind can devise on a computer and in nearly real time. --Jean Michel LeTennier, CTO, Atomic Database Corp.

"There's so little there to understand or explain what happened or why it happened."Really? Consider the facts:
Reserved ... mild mannered, very calm, very peaceful, very nice, very decent ... no signs of unusual behavior ... never fanatic ... never suspicious ... the family was as surprised as anyone ...That's how intelligent terrorists behave. Relying on them being stupid and giving themselves away by behavior is stupid.
He had a really good job, really good pay ... was living the American dream ...Blows right out of the water the persistent Western delusional rationalization (and guilt) of Islamist violence as driven by socio-economic deprivation, discrimination, desperation, "occupation", support of Israel.
Smooth Visa Process for Woman in Attack ... After a background check by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security, she was granted a conditional green card last summer ... Female San Bernardino shooter reportedly entered US on 'fiance' visa with inaccurate address.
... The area in Punjab where she spent her early years and later went to university is a “recruitment ground” and stronghold of Islamist groups ... used to wear Western clothes but began wearing the hijab head covering or the all-covering burqa donned by the most conservative Muslim women about three years ago ... relatives knew she has become a religious person and she often tells people to live according to the teachings of Islam ... Had been in contact with several FBI-tracked international terrorists before committing the attack ... [yet] Little is known of Tashfeen Malik,is now at the center of a huge FBI terrorism investigation, yet she remains shrouded in mystery ... The investigation so far has developed indications of radicalization by the killers and of potential inspiration by foreign terrorist organizations.And they claim the screening process is adequate for mass importing of immmigrants, many of them with purchased fake passports? (Did you know that it emailed geen cards to the 9/11 perpetrators one year after the event?)
Farook had contact with people from at least two FBI-tracked terrorist organizations overseas, including the al-Qaida-affiliated Nusra Front in Syria ... Officials are now looking into the possibility that Malik radicalized her husband and convinced him to carry out the attack.You think? (Since March 2014, 71 US citizens have been charged in connection with supporting IS, including 56 this year).
In their off time accumulated weaponry, ammunition and explosives ... two assault-style rifles, two semi-automatic handguns and 1,600 rounds of ammunition in their another 4,500 rounds and 12 pipe bombs ... amassed an arsenal of 2,000 9 mm handgun rounds, 2,500 .223-caliber assault rifle rounds and "hundreds of tools" that could have been used to make explosive devices.If the accumulation of huge arsenals that have no possible purpose other than terrorism by a young Muslim couple, one of which has resided in Pakistan and Saudia and wears the niqab and both of which have been in touch with terror groups monitored by the FBI does not attract attention, what must terrorists do to become suspicious?
The surprise accompanying most of such attacks is due to Western denial of an inconvenient reality and security incompetence that border on the absurd and the suicidal (see video below).
