iphone – Show Apple Contacts Birthday in Google Calendar

I have alle my contacts on my iPhone including birthdays. Recently I switched to the Google Calendar, because of work.

Unfortunately, I can’t find a way to display the birthdays from my iPhone contacts inside the Google Calendar app on my iPhone. It only displays the Birthdays Calendar from the Google contacts, but I don’t want to keep two different contacts in sync.

It would also be useful to get these birthdays inside the web calendar.

list – Birthday & Anniversary Webpart (Slider)

I would like to create an share point web part (slider) on wiki page to display today’s birthday and anniversaries with picture and description (like Date of birth, name, year in company etc).

Since, I am new in SharePoint and don’t know much about SharePoint development, would someone please help me with step by step process to create SharePoint Web part which I can add to the page.

I am not administrator of the SharePoint and only the owner of a site.

Thank you in advance!

probability – Question about an alternative method for solving the birthday problem

Original problem: Suppose there are $30$ people in a room. What is the probability at least two people have the same birthday?

My question: Is the second method below a correct method, in terms of rewriting the intersection of all the events $E_i$ as products? I am asking this because the first method seems similar to the second method but has unnecessary and tedious steps. Note: I am first finding a general formula in both methods, then substituting $n=30$.

Let $E_i$ be the event that people have unique birthdays for $i = 1,2,…n$

Method 1:

$P(bar E_n) = 1 – P(E_n)$

$= 1 – P(E_1 ∩ E_2 ∩… ∩ E_n )$

$= 1 – P(E_n|E_1 ∩ E_2 ∩… ∩ E_{n-1})P(E_1 ∩ E_2 ∩… ∩ E_{n-1})$ by using the conditional probability formula

$ = 1 – P(E_n|E_{n-1})P(E_1 ∩ E_2 ∩… ∩ E_{n-1})$

$ = 1 – P(E_n|E_{n-1})P(E_{n-1}|E_{n-2})…P(E_2|E_1)P(E_1)$

$ = 1 – (frac {365-n+1}{365})(frac {365-n+2}{365})…(frac {365-1}{365})(1)$

Substituting $n=30$, $P(bar E_n) = 0.71$

Method 2:

$P(bar E_n) = 1 – P(E_n)$

$= 1 – P(E_1 ∩ E_2 ∩… ∩ E_n )$

$= 1 – P(E_1)P(E_2)…P(E_n)$ by using the definition of independence: P(A∩B) = P(A)P(B)

$ = 1 – (frac {365-1+1}{365})(frac {365-2+1}{365})…(frac {365-n+1}{365})$ where $i=1,2,..,n$ for $(frac {365-i+1}{365})$

Substituting $n=30$, $P(bar E_n) = 1 – frac{365!/335!}{365} = 0.71$

So my question is whether the second method is valid or is it just a coincidence that it leads to the same answer as the first method. I am unsure if the definition of independence is used correctly/is allowed in method 2 since it would make solving this problem a lot easier than the method 1, and that all the additional steps in method 1 were unnecessary.

sharepoint online – Is it possible to extract and/or set users’ birthday with a powershell script?

I’ve been doing some investigating and apparently a user’s birthday date (the one that shows up on Delve) is not stored in a property inside the user’s own office365 account object.

I’m trying to create a powershell script in Azure where I can update a user’s birthday with a value that is currently in a sharepoint list. As of right now if I could find out how to even set the birthday property hard-coded, that would be some progress.

Get-MsolUser and Set-Msoluser don’t work because as I stated previously the birthday date isn’t there for some reason, but I can retrieve a user’s birthday utilizing Microsoft Graph and sending a GET request to this uri of the API https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/users/{user_id}/birthday
The response of that request is what I would like to be able to automatically set, but I can’t seem to find a way to do so.
