During the Trustee and Advisory Committee Reports, Trustee Chris Picini touted the Virtual Enterprise Program students, who were interviewed for their company positions this week. He said he was also impressed by the high school library’s makerspace room and the projects in which students have been engaged. President E. Anne Hayes noted that she was also impressed by a football program fundraiser she attended and said it was a great opportunity for students to develop leadership skills by assisting with the breakfast. President Hayes discussed her attendance at the New York State School Boards Association school board workshop. She reminded the trustees that the Board must “lead by example.” Assistant Superintendent for Finance and Management Services Dr. Sam Gergis delivered a report about the District’s Reserve Plan and Fund Balance. During his report, he gave the status of reserve plans and fund balances including the Employee Benefit Accrued Liability Reserve, Retirement Contribution Reserve, the Reserve for Teachers’ Retirement System Contributions (TRS), Property Loss and Liability, Unemployment Insurance Payment Reserve, Workers’ Compensation Reserve, 2016 Capital Reserve, Repair Reserve and Unassigned and Assigned Fund Balances. Dr. Gergis also gave recommendations on funding. Following this report, the Board approved a resolution to authorize a transfer in the maximum amount of$2,228,242 from the unreserved, unappropriated fund balance for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2019, to the 2016 Capital Reserve Fund for the purpose of funding capital reserve projects authorized by the voters for the 2019-2020 school year. The Board also approved resolutions to transfer $250,000 from the District’s surplus balance for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2019 to the Reserve for Teachers’ Retirement System Contributions for the purpose of funding the TRS. Dr. Gergis also delivered a presentation on cybersecurity, insurance coverage and ransomware protection. In addition to discussing how cybersecurity attacks happen, Dr. Gergis explained how employees can protect themselves from phishing emails, emails that look like they are sent from familiar sources which cause viruses that lead to cyberattacks. Dr. Giani and the Board accepted the appointment of Frank P. Long Intermediate School music teacher Katherine Romano and welcomed her to the school community. During the Consent Agenda for Business, the Board announced the ratification of the Collective Bargaining Unit Agreement with the Bellport Teachers Association Affiliate through August 23, 2023, as well as a memorandum of agreement with the BTAA concerning participation in the District’s group health insurance plan.

Price Drop: WhereAreYou.? (Social Networking)

 Cache   

WhereAreYou.? 1.36


Device: iOS iPhone
Category: Social Networking
Price: $.99 -> Free, Version: 1.36 (iTunes)

Description:

WhereAreYou? is an application that allows you to look at the Facebook events you are going to and allows you to select attendees that you wish to meet up with.

If you select an attendee and they also select you then you will be able to track each others location when at the event.

For privacy reasons your location is only used when you are on the events tracking screen and only shown to people who you have allowed when they are also on the same screen.

The primary use for the event is for small scale meet-ups and for event such as outdoor festivals where finding people in a crowd can be difficult.

Please note that the application uses GPS tracking and continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

What's New

1.36

- Improve event loading progress feedback for large events.
- Prevent initial run and the Facebook sign-in then not moving to next screen
- reinstate Facebook ad on event loading screen
- Add setting to control how long cached Facebook profile images are retained
(greater caching speeds up future loading but at the expense of 5kB per attendee)

Generic Validation Criteria and Methodologies for SDN Applications

 Cache   
Programmable control plane in software-defined networking (SDN), plays an essential role in the SDN architecture. The network function provided by the specialized hardware in a legacy network can be created in the form of software-based “SDN application” running on the controllers to manipulate entire network configurations. Therefore, the risk of having software bugs and errors in the SDN applications may threaten the normal operations of SDN networks. This paper presents systematic validation criteria and test cases based on the proposed novel methodologies for SDN application testing. The test framework can perform testbed build-up, generate desired packet sequences, and analyze results automatically. According to the results of a generic test suite, several issues are unveiled in the application under test (AUT). Some AUTs, which need to check all the incoming packets from OpenFlow switches, fail to meet the test criteria of burst packet-in and flow self-recycling. For most of the applications based on the Ryu controller, the evaluation results reveal that some are unable to recycle flow entries after they are unloaded. It is recommended that all flows populated by SDN applications must have timeout value specified to prevent unnecessary entries kept in the flow table.
          

Tensor-Based Rule-Space Management System in SDN

 Cache   
This paper presents a tensor-based rule-space management (TERM) system for improving the available capacity of switches in software defined networking (SDN). Limited storage capacity of switches is a key challenge in SDN as the switches use ternary content addressable memories having very low capacity. Low rule storage capacity eventually leads to the high number of Packet-In messages and control plane overloading. The challenge is to design a dynamic scheme to store a large number of heterogeneous flow-rules in SDN switches and reduce the number of Packet-In messages. To address this problem, we apply the concept of tensor decomposition in order to aggregate flow-rules. In addition, we employ a rule caching mechanism for better throughput. Simulation results show the efficiency of TERM in terms of reduction in the number of Packet-In messages. TERM reduces the Packet-In message count by ${{57.78%}}$ than the flow aggregation approach proposed in the existing literature.

Fair Congestion Control Protocol for Data Center Bridging

 Cache   
Data center networking brought a new era of data-intensive applications such as remote direct memory access, high-performance computing, and cloud computing, which raise new challenges for network researchers. Such applications require minimum network latency, no packet loss, and fairness between flows. Therefore, IEEE Data Center Bridging Task Group presents several enhancements for Ethernet networks to fulfill these requirements. In this context, we investigate the possibility of achieving dropless Ethernet. We extend our previously proposed congestion control protocol, named Heterogeneous Flow (HetFlow), to achieve minimum queue length and consequently minimum network latency. In addition, we present a mathematical model, stability analysis, and scalability study of the proposed protocol. Further, extensive simulation experiments are conducted to verify our mathematical analysis. Moreover, it is illustrated by simulations that HetFlow improves fairness between flows of different packet sizes and different round trip times.
          

Islanding Detection of Synchronous Generator-Based DGs using Rate of Change of Reactive Power

 Cache   
The question of the islanding operation of distributed generations (DGs) and that of the current inadmissible networking policy of islanding operations sets a demanding task for an efficient islanding detection, preferably from a single place, using either passive or active islanding-detection method. Islanding detection shall be faster than the fast automatic reclosing of the connected transmission line connected to the DG unit. This paper deals with the detection method of islanded operation mode for the large power synchronous generator-based DGs in bio-mass power plants. The proposed method has been applied to a practical 10-MW bio-mass power plant and experimentally tested to verify the simulation results. The rate of change of reactive power (dQ/dt >) criterion is derived as a yardstick for islanding detection. The practical power plant model has been implemented to be simulated in DIgSILENT PowerFactory and MATLAB/Simulink software environments. Offline digital time-domain simulations and experimental tests on a practical bio-mass power plant reveals that the proposed method efficiently, and authentically detects islanding phenomena with high accuracy, low detection time, very small number of non-detected zones and, with almost zero power balance (ΔP = 0).

Heavy Networking 489: Is BBR Too Unfair An Algorithm For The Internet?

 Cache   

BBR is a congestion control algorithm (CCA) that's growing in use on the Internet. However, a design element in BBR starves competing CCAs for bandwidth on shared links, allowing BBR to consume more than its fair share. On today's Heavy Networking we speak with researchers at Carnegie Mellon University who have measured BBR's unfairness. We discuss the research, learn how BBR differs from legacy algorithms such as Cubic and Reno, and explore impacts to the Internet. Our guests are Ranysha Ware, Ph.D. student; and Justine Sherry, Associate Professor of Computer Science.

WordPress with Let's Encrypt SSL Certificate on a Load Balancer

 Cache   

Hi again,

As many of you know a lot of “Production” applications need to be configured to provide High Availability. With that in mind, a best practice architecture to your application is to add a Load Balancer as a front end who distribute your traffic between your application nodes, as you can appreciate on the next image:

Load Balancer HA

SSL Offloading

In this case, my “Production” application is my blog, and I will install a SSL Certificate on the Cloud Load Balancer(CLB) to offloading the encryption/decryption to the CLB instead of doing it on the webserver. That way your webservers uses port 80 (HTTP), as always, and you serve your content trought port 443(HTTPS).

SSL-Offloading

Here are the what I use to configure my WordPress with SSL Certificate:

  • SSL Certificate issued using Let’s Encrypt
  • A Client of Let’s Encrypt called acme
  • A Cloud Load Balancer
  • A WordPress installation

Step 1: Install acme.sh client

There is a lot of ACME clients supported by Let’s Encrypt, the most popular is Certbot. However, I prefer to use acme.sh.

Let’s install it:

git clone https://github.com/Neilpang/acme.sh.git
cd acme.sh
# Create a data home directory
sudo mkdir -p /opt/acme/data
# Actual command to install it
bash acme.sh --install --home /opt/acme --config-home /opt/acme/data --certhome /opt/acme/data/ssl-certs --accountemail your@email.com

Step 2: Issue SSL Certificate

Once acme.sh is installed, we proceed to issue our first SSL Certificate:

/opt/acme/acme.sh --issue -d example.com -w /var/www/vhosts/example.com/public_html
[Mon Aug 25 06:04:07 UTC 2017] Creating domain key
[Mon Aug 25 06:04:07 UTC 2017] The domain key is here: /opt/acme/data/ssl-certs/example.com/example.com.key
[Mon Aug 25 06:04:07 UTC 2017] Single domain='example.com'
[Mon Aug 25 06:04:07 UTC 2017] Getting domain auth token for each domain

[Mon Aug 25 06:04:07 UTC 2017] Getting new-authz for domain='example.com'
[Mon Aug 25 06:04:08 UTC 2017] The new-authz request is ok.
[Mon Aug 25 06:04:08 UTC 2017] Verifying:example.com
[Mon Aug 25 06:04:11 UTC 2017] Success
[Mon Aug 25 06:04:11 UTC 2017] Verify finished, start to sign.
[Mon Aug 25 06:04:11 UTC 2017] Cert success.

We are almost done, at this time we already have configured our SSL on the CLB to provide WordPress over HTTPS, however, WordPress is still with HTTP, so we need to reconfigure our WordPress with SSL.

Database queries

First of all, we should update the links from http to https; we are going to do it directly on the database doing the following queries:

Warning: Change all instances of example.com to your own. If you have the www as part of your WordPress Address(URL) in the WordPress Settings, add the ‘www’.

Also, if you have a custom table prefix in the WordPress database, something other than the default ‘wp’, then you must change all the instances of ‘wp’ to your own table prefix.

  1. Update any embedded attachments/img that use http:This one updates the src attributes that use double quotes:

    UPDATE `wp_posts` SET post_content = REPLACE(post_content, 'src=\"http://example.com', \
    'src=\"https://example.com') WHERE post_content LIKE '%src=\"http://example.com%';
    

    This one takes care of any src attributes that use single quotes:

    UPDATE `wp_posts` SET post_content = REPLACE(post_content, 'src=\'http://example.com', \
    'src=\'https://example.com') WHERE post_content LIKE '%src=\'http://example.com%';
    
  2. Update any hard-coded URLs for links.This one updates the URL for href attributes that use double quotes:

    UPDATE `wp_posts` SET post_content = REPLACE(post_content, 'href=\"http://example.com', \
    'href=\"https://example.com') WHERE post_content LIKE '%href=\"http://example.com%';
    

    This one updates the URL for href attributes that use single quotes:

    UPDATE `wp_posts` SET post_content = REPLACE(post_content, 'href=\'http://example.com', \
    'href=\'https://example.com') WHERE post_content LIKE '%href=\'http://example.com%';
    
  3. Update any “pinged” links:

    UPDATE `wp_posts` SET pinged = REPLACE(pinged, 'http://example.com', \
    'https://example.com') WHERE pinged LIKE '%http://example.com%';
    
  4. This step is just a confirmation step to make sure that there are no remaining http URLs for your site in the wp_posts table, except the GUID URLs.

    You must replace WP_DB_NAME, near the beginning of the query, with the name of your database.

    This will confirm that nowhere in the wp_posts table is there a remaining http URL, outside of the GUID column. This ignores URLs in the GUID column.

    This query only searches; it does not replace anything, nor make any changes. So, this is safe to run. It’s a safe and quick way to check the wp_posts table while ignoring the guid column.

    This SQL query should return an empty set. That would mean that it found no http URLs for your site. (This is all just 1 query. It’s 1 very, very long line.)

    Warning: Remember to replace WP_DB_NAME, near the beginning of the query, with the name of your database.

    SELECT * FROM `WP_DB_NAME`.`wp_posts` WHERE (CONVERT(`ID` USING utf8) LIKE \
    '%%http://example.com%%' OR CONVERT(`post_author` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%' \
    OR CONVERT(`post_date` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%' \
    OR CONVERT(`post_date_gmt` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%' \
    OR CONVERT(`post_content` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%' \
    OR CONVERT(`post_title` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%' \
    OR CONVERT(`post_excerpt` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%' \
    OR CONVERT(`post_status` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%' \
    OR CONVERT(`comment_status` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%' \
    OR CONVERT(`ping_status` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%' \
    OR CONVERT(`post_password` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%' \
    OR CONVERT(`post_name` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%' \
    OR CONVERT(`to_ping` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%' \
    OR CONVERT(`pinged` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%' \
    OR CONVERT(`post_modified` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%' \
    OR CONVERT(`post_modified_gmt` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%' \
    OR CONVERT(`post_content_filtered` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%' \
    OR CONVERT(`post_parent` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%' \
    OR CONVERT(`menu_order` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%' \
    OR CONVERT(`post_type` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%' \
    OR CONVERT(`post_mime_type` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%' \
    OR CONVERT(`comment_count` USING utf8) LIKE '%%http://example.com%%');
    
  5. Now, we move to the wp_comments table. This changes any comment author URLs that point to the http version of your site. This is in case you’ve ever replied to a comment while your URL was pointing to http.

    UPDATE `wp_comments` SET comment_author_url = REPLACE(comment_author_url, \
    'http://example.com', 'https://example.com') WHERE comment_author_url \
    LIKE '%http://example.com%';
    
  6. This updates the content of the comments on your site. If there are any links in the comments that are linking to an http URL on your site, they will be updated to https.

    UPDATE `wp_comments` SET comment_content = REPLACE(comment_content, 'http://example.com', \
    'https://example.com') WHERE comment_content LIKE '%http://example.com%';
    
  7. Now we move to the wp_postmeta table. This takes care of any custom post meta that points to the http version of your site.

    UPDATE `wp_postmeta` SET `meta_value` = REPLACE(meta_value, 'http://example.com', \
    'https://example.com') WHERE meta_value LIKE '%http://example.com%';
    
  8. Now we move to the wp_options table. Update the “WordPress Address (URL)” and “Site Address (URL)”.

    For the WordPress Address URL, you may have to modify example.com. If you have WordPress installed in some other directory, then modify this according to your own WordPress URL. For example, some people have WordPress installed in a subdirectory named “blog”, and so their WordPress Address would be https://example.com/blog.

    UPDATE `wp_options` SET `option_value` = "https://example.com" \
    WHERE `wp_options`.`option_name` = 'siteurl';
    

    This one will update the Site Address URL (this is the home page of your site):

    UPDATE `wp_options` SET `option_value` = "https://example.com" \
    WHERE `wp_options`.`option_name` = 'home';
    

WordPress Control Panel

Besides, with run the queries directly on the database, we can update, or verify,  the blog URLs, by going to Settings > General

And updating your WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) address fields.

Updating URLs

WordPress Config File

Finally, we should add the following line to our wp_config.php file

$_SERVER['HTTPS']='on';

Now, you have configured WordPress with Let’s Encrypt SSL Certificate on a Load Balancer.

Thanks for the advice! I will definitely need to take a close look at our finances, and this will probably have to cut into our budget for her gift. I would have liked to gift them something a bit splurgy, but we can only she out so much for what is essentially a party.

Take note, I don't sanction either sides of this stupid squabble; dumb, repetitive shitposting is unhealthy for a subreddit unless it's 100% dedicated to said shitposting, be it in the comments or actual posts themselves. I really love gungeon, and that's why I always come here. But when Casey or blasphemy is even remotely mentioned in this subreddit, it's just sparks a stupid comment chain of magjag being a jackass to people who meme about Casey Vs.

Back in the 70s, a circus was visiting and set up in the mall parking lot. One of the the older elephants ended up dying while there and no one knew how to handle it. They didn have the right machinery to carry away the body, and the city was getting complaints from people about this giant corpse, so they decided the elephant would be buried right there.. dildo

Adult Toys The reason I chose this set was because I'm a sucker for sexy bra and panty duos. Had the Midnight Oasis been a strapless set I could have handled the slightly prickly bra cups, but the straps given took away from the overall quality of the bra as they were itchy and tacky.What I lovedWhile this isn't a set I would wear every day, and the cincher will probably be given away to someone who can give it a better home, I'm not completely dissatisfied.

Producing each design requires its own kind of sleight of hand. The 33 year old Shah splits her time between her studio in Mumbai and New York dildos, where Aditiany has a showroom in the garment district, a storehouse filled with thousands of embroidery swatches: There are yards of gold bullion fringe and Chantilly lace, a rainbow of Murano glass beads and a vast library of brilliant crystals and semiprecious stones. She also makes about four trips a year to Europe to discuss upcoming collections with various houses.

In fact, the story up until the Illidan novel was that almost no one survived his demon hunter training it was something like 7 individuals, most of whom went mad.

wholesale sex toys It became clear that he liked Reddit because at the time this subreddit was mostly memes and there was very little talk of strategy, gameplay, or creative suggestions, which meant he could do very little and still come across as active in the community.Now it seems the team is tuning out Reddit, too.

I started the pill earlier this year becuse i had enetred a relationship and had bad period pains (should have mention that) then stopped in may (i think) because i was no longer in a relationship and indoors mostly also i have very bad memory due to mental disabilities it was one less thing to worry about, it was fine for a month or two and my periods were normal and painful then BOOM cant keep up with them. The feel like period pains sometimes then other times like stomak pains and cramps and im always out of energy. sex toys

Even with lube it would not have gone around me while erect. Putting it on semi erect worked to get it on but it was way to tight and felt like it was completely restricting blood flow. I was kept at that state of semi erection, never fully hard or fully soft.

I'm just in love with this vibrator dildos, and have gotten so much use out of it. I'm still on the same set of batteries too.

Whether used as foreplay dildos, fun play, wrestling time, or sploshing, this kit is ideal. Place the inflatable vinyl sheet wherever you want the fun to take place.

Realistic Dildo A nice firm rub is needed to rub the cream in. Once the cream is all rubbed into the spanked area or not spanked, a cooling sensation is felt, but not to overwhelming, the burn from the spank is enough.

sex toys Even on the highest vibration setting, this bullet cannot be heard through a door unless it is laying against something hard.

You would not be able to hear the vibrations over a running shower.. sex toys

wholesale dildos Additionally dildos, there is more than one type of ceramic mixture on the market. Just because talc is used to formulate the ceramic in tiles does not mean that talc is used to formulate the ceramic in plates or sex toys. But even if it was, the amount used may be negligible (not to mention being present in a different form that poses a much, much lower risk of inhalation or absorption).. wholesale dildos

Realistic Dildo It's not overwhelming or incredibly heavy, but that's the smell you're going to have on your fingertips when you pick it up. The musky smell goes away after washing it a few times, but you're stuck with the vanilla. It comes coated in a light powder, so I'm pretty sure that's where the musky smell is coming from.

Make it to 5 weeks atleast this time.If you religiously commit to what I am saying here you will know why this strategy works. Your body is ever adjusting and within these 3 weeks your body has tried to improve its functioning. But what you will notice is that it will be relatively easier for you to get to 3 weeks now since one relapse will not change the body functions immediately.

Adult Toys The Pocket Wonder Wand is smaller than most wand vibrators. The head is 1.2 inches wide, which is half the diameter of a Magic Wand Rechargeable head. This head concentrates the vibrations on a smaller area. Someone who respects you and is open to talk about your sexual relationship is definitely vital. I like to think of it as a hierarchy, with respect and trust at the bottom of the pyramid, communication on top of that, and finally willingness to be willing to try new things with their partner. It certainly is a lofty and unrealistic goal to find a partner who has all the same sexual fantasies/desires as you, but if you can find someone who is willing to try new things for you as you do for them while still maintaining respect, trust, and communication than that is a very good prospect for a fulfilling sexual relationship Adult Toys.

Michael del Vecchio discusses how to improve business networking skills

 Cache   

Entrepreneurs just now and again take the time to network and some accept that this is, as a rule, an exercise in futility. In any case, making commonly gainful connections should be a need for any entrepreneur. It should be seen not as a cost, but as an interest in the organization's future. Strong business associations can provoke new customers, improved organization capacities and the disclosure of new contemplations.

A Letter from the President

 Cache   

Greetings,

From my office chair; a place I’ve yearned for since late September, when highways replaced my dual computer screens. My name is Rachel and I serve as President this academic year for Minnesota Association of Counselors of Color. After thousands of miles on the road, hundreds of Holiday Inn points accrued and multiple gas station snack stops, it feels good to be back at home base.

Travel season; a time of perpetual exerted energy and broken record elevator pitches behind a decorated college table. To my counterparts still on the recruitment trail - you too have a light waiting at the end of the tunnel. The work you do is valuable!

Fall Fair Circuit

Over the last two weeks, MnACC partnered with 17 Twin Cities metro high schools to bring 54 colleges and universities to meet with students. During the fairs we offered a professional development session to college counselors with Wayne Felton II, Coordinator of Educational Equity for District 622 where we learned to craft our racial autobiographies and the importance of sharing those stories. That evening we gathered for a networking hour at Surly Brewery. On November 4th we launched our online MnACC scholarship application for high school seniors applying to any of our member institutions. The weeks were busy, but the labor was rewarding. To those involved in the process, you know who you are and we greatly appreciate your efforts.

Changes to MnACC

I want to personally thank all of our member institutions for your patience as we ironed through kinks of our new website platform this fall. Changes were extensive and membership renewal was rocky, but we’ve heard your suggestions and will apply them to our processes in the future. We hope you are enjoying the new look and efficiency of our website.

You may have also noticed an increase in our membership dues from last year. MnACC, like many of our congruent organizations, is committed to the services we provide. Furthermore, our commitment to support of underrepresented students through the college search process, as stated in our mission, has led us to make changes to our pricing structure in order to continue our normal operations. We are continuously grateful for your support.

Why We Exist

A question we sometimes get is, why have an organization devout to counselors of color? An answer certainly has layers, but simply put, MnACC empowers counselors of color through professional development and leadership opportunities to positively impact the students of color they serve. They work diligently for the first generation and underrepresented college goers because they see themselves in these students. We do what we do because we know diversifying perspectives in higher education is critical to equitable societal advancement. All the long hours on the road and nights away from home propel the futures of Minnesota’s students of color. This is why MnACC exists. We are stronger when we work together. Thank you for making MnACC exist for nearly 30 years. I look forward to the work we will accomplish together in this academic year.

Regards,

Rachel Nguyen


          

TP-Link lansează Deco P9 (3-Pack), un sistem Wi-Fi pentru în întreaga locuinţă care foloseşte şi tehnologia Powerline pentru acoperire extinsă (Networking)

 Cache   

Principala problemă la amenajarea unei reţele Wi-Fi cu mai multe puncte de acces este interconectarea acestora, amplasarea unui cablu de reţea întinsă pe zeci de metri şi etaje separate nefiind tocmai uşoară. Venind cu soluţia salvatoare, TP-Link pune la dispoziţie un sistem Wi-Fi pentru în întreaga locuinţă care foloseşte priza electrică în locul cablului de reţea dedicat.

TP-Link anunţă lansarea sistemului Whole Home Powerline Mesh Wi-Fi Deco P9 (3-Pack). Acesta îmbină conexiunea Wi-Fi cu tehnologia Powerline, pentru o instalare rapidă şi cu minime provocări în configurarea ulterioară.

Tehnologia Powerline utilizează circuitul electric existent al casei pentru a conecta unităţile Wi-Fi Deco, reducând impactul pe care îl pot avea pereţii groşi ai locuinţei sau alte obstacole aflate în calea semnalului wireless, scopul fiind obţinerea unor viteze de reţea mai mari decât este posibil în modul complet wireless, chiar şi folosind canale Wi-Fi dedicate pentru interconectarea punctelor de acces.

Tehnologia mesh TP-Link permite unităţilor Deco să lucreze împreună pentru a forma o reţea unică, detectată pe smartphone sau tabletă se cu acelaşi nume de utilizator şi parolă. Asta permite dispozitivului să aleagă automat la cea mai apropiată/rapidă unitate Deco, preferând cea mai rapidă conexiune Wi-Fi disponibilă în locaţia respectivă.

Deco P9 (3-Pack) promite o viteză de reţea de trei ori mai mare decât cea a routerelor din generaţia anterioară (802.11n), datorită tehnologiei wireless 802.11ac. În practică, vitezele reale obţinute vor depinde în mare parte de încărcarea reţelei şi distanţa faţă de punctul de acces wireless.

Fiecare dispozitiv Deco P9 este alimentat de un procesor Qualcomm, dispune de câte două porturi Ethernet Gigabit şi două antene interne dual-band. Sistemul este capabil să funcţioneze la o rată de transfer de până la 300 Mbps în banda de 2.4 GHz şi 867 Mbps în banda de 5 GHz. Vitezele de transfer Powerline, pot junge la 1Gbps, mai mult decât suficient pentru intermedierea conexiunii wireless fără penalizări de viteză.

Sistemul mesh Wi-Fi TP-Link Deco P9 Plus (3 pack) va fi disponibil in magazinele online incepand cu luna decembrie.

Dell announces On Demand, PowerOne, expands PCaaS, focuses on customer advocacy, invests in SMB

 Cache   

Dell was always been relevant for small business and education markets but is now in an exalted position to stake its claim within the enterprise segment and the new battleground – the midmarket firms. In this Techaisle Take analysis I cover Dell Technologies’ On Demand offering, Progress Made Real initiative, expanded PCaaS for SMBs, focus on customer advocacy, continued SMB investment, new converged infrastructure PowerOne, Unified workspace solution and channel partner strategy.

Dell Technologies Summit in Austin was a showcase of bold announcements and understated commitments to corporate social good and customer advocacy. Dell has certainly transformed in the last five years. It has moved along a path from a PC company to end-to-end solutions provider to a digital transformation partner to a place where it is driving its own transformation through the power of analytics with a goal of delivering customer success. Dell has catapulted itself into relevancy for the next decade.

In 1984, when Michael Dell founded his namesake company in his college dorm, I was a freshly minted engineering college graduate working through my first job at a tractor manufacturing plant in India. My first interaction with Dell was in early nineties when an India-based firm was awarded a contract manufacturing deal. I was then running the secretariat of a computer manufacturer’s association in India. Since then not only technology has progressed but both the consumers and commercial buyers have evolved. Dell has not only moved with the times but sometimes has been ahead of the curve. One such “ahead of the curve” initiative is “Progress Made Real for 2030” announced at the summit.

Progress Made Real for 2030 stands on four pillars:

  1. Advancing sustainability: for example, one-for-one recycling, that is, every product that Dell sells it will recycle an equivalent product
  2. Cultivating inclusion: committing to 50 percent of Dell workforce to comprise of women by 2030, 40 percent of managers of people will be women, 25 percent of US workforce will be Hispanic or African American
  3. Transforming lives: for example, Dell’s work with Tata Trusts, with a goal to reach 40m under-privileged people from the current 11m
  4. Upholding ethics and privacy

Enabled by a combination of pervasive use of technology and vastly-expanded solution options, the technology user and buyer community has become more diverse in both composition and focus. Business decision makers (BDMs) are not content to await IT’s blessing to pursue technology options that align with business needs: an increasingly tech-savvy business user/management community plays an ever-expanding role in assessing technology options, and even in specifying solutions and managing their rollout. At the same time, the solution options themselves have expanded to become more accessible to non-IT staff. Some technologies, such as analytics and IoT, directly address business management questions. Others, notably cloud, provide support and delivery options that give business units the option of avoiding IT oversight. Even core IT functions, such as storage management (especially with respect to Big Data) and security (particularly with regard to cloud and mobility) are reshaped by system requirements imposed by BDM needs. It is not out of place, as an analyst, to say that Dell has been a little late in recognizing and pursuing the shifting patterns. Regardless, Dell has been a believer of technology democratization and has begun a concerted effort to manage technology chaos with a differentiated customer strategy and drive the ability to scale human capacity. These are very lofty and moonshot initiatives. But then Dell is a founder-led company whose founder is skilled at assembling the proverbial ship piece-by-piece and navigating it through uncharted and occasionally choppy waters.

Dell Technologies differentiated customer strategy is built on four key points:

  1. Driving social impact with purpose-driven relationships
  2. Creating customer advocates for life by honoring customer loyalty and delivering success
  3. Making it easy to do business with Dell by executing on basics
  4. Unlocking customer value by leading with insights

Dell’s customer advocacy team is constantly analyzing 9.5K social conversations per day, looks at 33K customer verbatims in addition to its 16K sales team members sharing feedback. Dell’s plan to delivering a seamless and simplified customer experience is not very different from recently announced customer lifecycle experience, aka race track, by Cisco. End goals are the same, approaches are slightly different. But the fact that all suppliers are landing at the same end-state is significant on how the technology industry has evolved.

Perhaps the most important announcement at Dell Tech Summit was its On Demand offering. Dell went to great lengths to explain its genesis and development but it is clear that it a direct response to the growing popularity of HPE GreenLake. Regardless of HPE commanding the media-waves Dell has jumped headlong into the as-a-service, post-transactional market with Dell Technologies On Demand Autonomous Infrastructure available via DT Cloud. Dell is prepared to deliver solutions today and at scale. And it is also within reach of midmarket businesses. Key takeaways of Dell’s On Demand solutions are:

  1. On-demand, consumption-based and as-a-service solutions for on-prem infrastructure / services is customizable, integrated across the full-stack for Dell's end-to-end portfolio from edge to core to cloud
  2. Dell widened the product of their Flex On Demand offerings for PowerEdge servers and their new PowerOne autonomous converged infrastructure solution (announced at Dell Technologies Summit). With this announcement, Dell’s consumption-based on-demand solutions now cover PCs, servers, storage, CI/HCI, IoT, datacenters, networking and data protection. Ideally applicable for firms with a minimum $250K 3-year contract-value but end-points including PCaaS is available for SMBs (at lower committed contract values).
  3. Dell knows how to create simplicity within complexity. Businesses can customize and select their on-demand path from:
    1. Payment: Pay As You Grow, Flex On Demand, Data Center Utility
    2. Services: ProSupport, ProDeploy, Managed services
    3. Portfolio: Edge, Endpoint, Core, Cloud
  4. On Demand offering provides two options for channel partners to participate:
    1. Referral fee – 7%-10% on committed contract value including tier credit program benefit. Dell owns and manages the customer. The partner still plays an active role in managing the customer relationship. The referral fee model positions the partner to address the customer’s solution needs, and enhance their customer relationship without having to take on the usage and credit risk associated with offering a pay for use solution.
    2. Resell – Partner owns and manages the customer. Allows partner to uplift base usage charge and earn program benefits including rebates, marketing development funds, and tier credit

Pay As You Grow is for committed workloads. The metering coverage in Flex On Demand includes processor, memory, and GB consumed. Data Center Utility adds metering based on VM and per port. The solution is still in its early stages and Dell views this as a journey rather than a destination. But the offering, in early stages, is finding acceptance at many of Dell’s customers. Scalar (a CDW company) has been configuring on-demand solutions with unlimited scalability for major Hollywood studios.

Relative to the cost of conventional hardware and software, on-demand cloud solutions are generally more cost effective than equivalent CAPEX-based on-premise alternatives, and its OPEX-based billing model works well for cash-constrained SMBs and midmarket firms. Cloud’s ‘as-a-Service’ delivery model reduces the need for individual SMBs and midmarket firms to attract and retain specialized IT staff; scale up as the organization grows, and cloud provides SMBs and midmarket firms that are often unable to maintain refresh cycles with ‘always-on’ access to current technology.

SMBs are not being left out from Dell’s strategy. In fact, small and midmarket businesses are two of the fastest growing segments for Dell. Its small business advisory has witnessed tremendous success but the team is not resting on its laurels. It aims to add 100 more small business advisors in the next one year. Each advisor goes through 160 hours of in-person classroom training. Dell has built a progressive hierarchical advisory structure, based on “needs complexity” to help SMBs learn, identify, buy and deploy technology. Small businesses with specific and simple requirements can also use Eva – a chatbot – to help guide through product selection and purchase.

Rather, you get an application, such as eProcurement or Supply Chain Management. However, you can choose the specific settings in the application, the […]

Leveraging Micro-Stories to Build Engagement, Inclusion, and Neural Networking in Immunology Education

 Cache   

Storytelling is a highly effective strategy for delivering course content. It can provide real-world contexts and the relevance students desire. Through personal connections to the narrative details, anecdotes facilitate the incorporation of content into pre-existing knowledge and neural networks that enhances retention. In addition, stories can honor students' diverse backgrounds, which builds a sense of belonging and community. In turn, these aspects can drive intrinsic motivation to learn and increase students' alertness in class and overall engagement in the course. Despite the educational power of stories, there often is not enough time to integrate them into curricula. To address this dilemma, faculty can condense stories into micro-stories that require relatively minimal class time. Many aspects of stories that enhance learning can be leveraged in just a few sentences by focusing on narrative details that engage a variety of cognitive and emotional processes. In particular, the inclusion of multiple sensory descriptions and small details, like locations and names, can provide sufficient context to maintain the value stories provide. Micro-stories can function independently or extend a single theme throughout a course. Presented in this Perspective are examples of micro-stories for concepts in immunology and strategies for developing them. Proposals are made for leveraging micro-stories to enhance student engagement and course community, content retention and retrieval, and satisfaction with immunology courses of all sizes and levels.

O ano de José Dias

 Cache   

Quando a revista norte-americana Downbeat, por muitos considerada a “bíblia do jazz”, dá destaque a um português, o que não acontece frequentemente (leia-se: muito pouco), é porque os motivos são mesmo muito fortes. Acontece na edição de Dezembro desta velha publicação e o português em causa é José Dias, guitarrista, compositor, investigador e “senior lecturer”, presentemente a desenvolver trabalho na Manchester Metropolitan University. Pois o ano que agora está a terminar foi cheio para o músico e académico, com dois discos editados de especial qualidade e relevância, o solo “After Silence, Vol. 1” (Clean Feed) e “Live at SMUP” (Escanifobético), à frente do grupo Awareness, e um livro de leitura imprescindível, “Jazz in Europe – Networking and Negotiating Identities” (Bloomsbury).

O ensaio referido é imprescindível porque o autor teve como objecto de estudo a forma como, na Europa, as gentes do jazz agem em rede, estabelecendo conexões e parcerias, formais ou informais, para a realização dos seus objectivos, o que acontece em vários planos, do criativo, no que especificamente aos músicos respeita, ao organizativo, muitas vezes seguindo as premissas Do It Yourself, e do educacional ou de investigação ao modo como se utilizam os diferentes media. No livro em causa, Dias vai mais longe e analisa questões como a identidade, a estrutura social, a mobilidade e a democracia em contexto europeu, observando-as aos níveis global e local.

No artigo da Downbeat refere-se como a presença de José Dias em Manchester, no Reino Unido, é ela própria uma celebração da unidade europeia e uma refutação do Brexit, «tendo em conta que se trata de um nativo de Portugal a viver na cidade do Norte inglês onde nasceu a Revolução Industrial». E dá-nos duas notícias: a de que estão para ser publicados brevemente outro livro, sobre os festivais de jazz europeus, e o segundo volume de “After Silence”, este em trio e com música concebida para acompanhar os filmes de Fritz Lang. Ou seja, em 2020 e mais à frente o músico vai continuar a dar que falar…

5. Share Your News

The Chamber publishes press releases on the Community News page on its website. On this page, the Chamber posts news releases from member businesses. Utilizing the Community News page is a great way to get the word out on happenings in local businesses.

It also is a great way to increase the SEO (search engine optimization) for the businesses’ websites. According to Moz.com, a SEO expert company, linking from one site to another is “especially valuable for SEO because they represent a ‘vote of confidence’ from one site to another.” It shows search engines that the website is worth linking to and therefore worth surfacing on searches.

The Community News page is also only available to Chamber members. Businesses wishing to submit press releases for online publication can contact Mara Kuhn, Communications Manager, at mara.kuhn@growinghotsprings.com.

6. Invite Fellow Members to Your Seminars

You hold seminars and meetings to help your employees be more knowledgeable and productive. By inviting fellow members to speak, not only helps your employees learn but also give your fellow Chamber member exposure. Your fellow Chamber member will appreciate the opportunity to showcase their work, and both companies will benefit from the networking opportunity.

7. Use Fellow Members’ Businesses First

By supporting fellow Chamber member’s businesses you help them grow. Your goodwill is also likely to be returned to you when that member needs your service.

8. Share or Trade Your Skills

One benefit of being a Chamber member is making connections with other business throughout the area. Sometimes a fellow Chamber member may just have a quick question. By sharing or trading your skills, you show that other member why you are good at what you do. They will appreciate your kindness and it will grow a personal relationship. Then when they have a big problem they are more likely to come to your company for your service.

Survey Results — The State of the NetSquared Community in 2019

 Cache   

Who are NetSquared's members? Why do they attend? What are their technology struggles? NetSquared's annual survey of all meetup members answers these questions and more. Plus, the results help our local organizers and partners build stronger groups with better events.

We received over 250 responses to the survey, drawing from our global meetup membership.

Executive Summary

  • Most NetSquared participants come from small "startup" nonprofits with no budget and no staff. They come to us looking for practical tips and a supportive community.
  • Participants find NetSquared valuable because it helps them network with other nonprofits, learn digital skills, and find project collaborators.
  • Event attendees are unfamiliar with TechSoup's services, but less so than they used to be. ;-)

NPS Score: Would You Recommend NetSquared to a Friend?

How likely are you to recommend this meetup to a friend or colleague?

We added a Net Promoter Score (NPS) scale this year, asking "how likely are you to recommend this meetup to a friend or colleague?"

A score of "4.7" doesn't mean much without context — the interesting results will come when we run the survey again and see if the score changes. But NPS benchmarks suggest that this is a low, but still positive score.

Organization Type: What Best Describes Your Organization?

What Best Describes Your Organization?

We asked people to share what kind of organization they represented. The top results were "nonprofit, NGO, or religious organization" (52%); "consultancy" (14%), and the random assortment that is "other" (11%).

Comments

Nonprofits are our core audience, so it's awesome to see that over half of attendees are people working in the sector. But NetSquared groups seek to create connections between NGOs and their allies, so it's good to see strong representation from key sector players like nonprofit tech consultants and business.

What Is Your Organization's Approximate Annual Budget? (US$)

What Is Your Organization's Approximate Annual Budget? (US$)

68% of respondents have a budget under US$1,000,000 and of that 42% are working with less than $100,000 per year.

Comments

The majority of NetSquared participants are small, scrappy, "startup" nonprofits just starting to grow. We are serving the section of civil society that doesn't yet have the ability to bring in paid consultants or dedicated technology staff.

When we compare the results of this survey over previous years, the average budget size for the organizations we serve is decreasing over time as NetSquared expands into more developing countries. This is an important reminder of the limited resources of the sector, especially outside the United States.

How Many Paid Full-Time Employees Work For Your Organization?

How Many Paid Full-Time Employees Work For Your Organization?

59% of respondents have less than ten staff. 31% are entirely community-driven and have zero paid employees.

Comments

NetSquared is serving the "accidental" techie, not the dedicated IT professional or programmer. Attendees are serving multiple roles in their organization.

Who Is Primarily Responsible for Technology Decisions at Your Organization?

Who Is Primarily Responsible for Technology Decisions at Your Organization?

49% have someone helping with a formal IT background. 61% of respondents report that they are the primary technology decision-maker at their organization.

Comments

Almost half of respondents have access to experienced IT help, whether from staff, a volunteer, or consultant. The rest are making do with "accidental techies". Very few organizations are leveraging consultants or external IT staff, probably because they are too small to afford external assistance.

What Is Your Role At Your Organization?

What is Your Role at your organization?

We asked respondents to select up to three roles they play in their organization. The top responses were:

  • Executive, Management, Director (41% — ⬆️ 12% compared to previous survey)
  • IT and Technology (32% — ⬆️ 2% compared to previous survey)
  • Marketing or Communications (21% — ⬇️️ 10% compared to previous survey)
  • Board Member (20% — ⬆️ 6% compared to previous survey)

Comments

There’s been a big jump in the percentage of nonprofit leaders attending NetSquared events. Executive Directors are no longer ignoring the significant positive impact that technology investments can make for their organizations.

TECHSOUP

The next series of questions focus on the respondent's knowledge of NetSquared's parent charity, TechSoup.

Which Techsoup Resources Do You Use?

Which TechSoup Resources do you use?

Besides the NetSquared meetups the most popular TechSoup resources are the blog (35%), product pages (33%), and webinars (31%).

Comments

Annotated version of Which Techsoup Resources Do You Use

Two and a half years ago I surveyed the NetSquared members and discovered that they weren't aware of the resources available from TechSoup. So we set to work to change that with communications to organizers and direct messaging to attendees via Meetup (which has only been possible with the rollout of Meetup Pro since the last survey). 🎉🎉AND WE’VE MADE BIG PROGRESS!🎉🎉

Is Your Nonprofit, Charity, Foundation, or Library Registered with TechSoup?

Is your organizaton registered with TechSoup?

54% of nonprofit respondents report that they have a TechSoup account (and you all should! It's free and it'll save you money!)

Comments

The percentage of TechSoup account-holders is up, but the "I don't know" option remains high at 17% (vs. 19% last time). I suspect that many of the "I don't know" nonprofits do have an account, but don't know about it because it's administered by their IT manager.

NETSQUARED MEETUPS

The next set of questions are focused on the respondent's participation in their local meetup groups.

How Did You Discover NetSquared?

How did you discover NetSquared?

Meetup is the most important tool for NetSquared discovery, with almost 50% of respondents citing it as their entry point to the community. Referrals from a friend are also important, with 25% reporting that it's a personal contact that brought them to NetSquared.

Comments

Increase in TechSoup discovery

The biggest change since the last survey is the HUGE increase in the percentage of NetSquared attendees finding the meetups via TechSoup channels. This is thanks to the increase in email marketing support from TechSoup USA.

What Are the Top Two Reasons You Participate in This Meetup?

What are the top two reasons you attend NetSquared meetups?

We asked people to select two choices from a list. The top options were:

  • Network with nonprofit staff (62%)
  • Learn digital skills (58%)
  • Find project collaborators (29%)

Comments

Once again networking & community is the top choice. People attend NetSquared events for the people.

NetSquared is very successful at being a place to find a community of practice and develop digital skills. However, we don't offer any explicit support for people to find project collaborators or volunteering their skills. This is all happening organically through the networking, but with supporting programs we could help more attendees contribute. 🙏🏾

Have You Shared Information You've Learned at a Meetup?

Have you shared information you've learend at a meetup?

Comments

NetSquared attendees are promiscuous! 76% have shared knowledge they’ve gained at an event. And 18% report that it drove them to try a new product or change the way they work.

Has the Meetup Been Useful in Increasing Your Adoption of Technology?

 NetSquared has increased the adoption of new technology for 59% of attendees

59% of respondents report that attending NetSquared events is useful in helping them increase their adoption of new technology.

How Does NetSquared Help Your Nonprofit?

NetSquared helps nonprofits make better IT decisions

The top three responses answers to this impact question were:

  • Makes connections that help me do my job better (63%)
  • Make better IT or digital marketing decisions (60%)
  • Reach more people (60%)

Comments

Measuring the impact of a distributed network like NetSquared can be difficult, but these questions start to help us determine the difference we make for our nonprofit members. The top answers reflects the value attendees find in networking, and the ability to make better tech decisions and reach more people speaks to the skill development we offer attendees.

 

NetSquared Impact Testimonials

Finally, the last section of the survey analysis features quotes from some of the text replies to the questions "How has attending NetSquared meetups helped your organization?" We have edited some entries for brevity or clarity.

 

Testimonial from Tech for Good Brighton Meetup

NetSquared testimonial —new software and experts NetSquared very valuable to me

NetSquared testimonial — NetSquared helped me prepare a presentation for the board to persuade them to take digital transformation seriously

 

“NetSquared has introduced me to new technology, newer ways to connect with people and to find collaborators. Thanks ”

“I learned about upgrading a website and when I got back home asked my website guy to implement some of them with success.”

“I always learn something at these MeetUps! The organizers are very welcoming and encouraging. Wonderful group of people.”

“Working at a non-profit, you are strapped for time and resources so it is incredibly helpful to get help when it comes to technology. ”

“In one nonprofit, NetSquared experience helped me develop a Collection Management System with offsite backup. In another nonprofit, NetSquared enabled me to know to create a Communications Officer which is now one of the primary officers.” — Leo Kellogg, Torch Foundation

“As a consultant serving the nonprofit sector, I love seeing what technologies people are most interested in, and learning more about their needs. It really helps me do a better job serving clients, whenever I understand their perspectives and priorities better.”

“I not only learn about programs and techniques that I put to valuable use but I also meet experts who I can consult with. The meetings are very valuable to me.” — Frank Brill, EnviroPolitics

“We found the help and cost savings have been really helpful, and we will no doubt take up the discounts on any commercial software that we need to us in the future. ”

“I have enjoyed attending sessions with NetSquared and learned a lot of new things. It has allowed me to network and bounce my ideas with like minded groups.”

 

Changes to the Next Survey

No survey is perfect, especially this one! Here's some tweaks we will consider for the next survey:

  • Add question "Have you ever attended a NetSquared event?" (allows us to filter results to see active vs inactive members)

  • Revise question "What TechSoup Resources Do You Use?"

    • Change "information pages about specific products" to "product pages"
    • Add option "TechSoup discount and donation programs"

According to a report from UBS and Fomalhaut Techno Solutions , the flagship phone contains no American made parts. That isn't surprising since the manufacturer is banned from its U.S. supply chain by the American government. The Journal notes how much progress Huawei has made to wean itself off of U.S. parts and chips.

For example, before the ban, Huawei sourced chips designed to keep its phones connected with network signals from U.S. companies like Qorvo. Similar chips were also purchased from Skyworks and Huawei's own HiSilicon unit. Since the ban, the manufacturer ...

Linux is a free and freely distributed operating system inspired by the UNIX system, written by Linus Torvalds with the help of thousands of programmers. UNIX is an operating system developed in 1991, one of whose greatest advantages is that it is easily portable to different types of computers, so there are UNIX versions for almost all types of computers, from PC and Mac to workstations and supercomputers.
Unlike other operating systems, such as MacOS (Apple operating system), UNIX is not intended to be easy to use, but to be extremely flexible. It is generally as easy to use as other operating systems, although great efforts are being made to facilitate its use.

LGBT activists in China seek to change marriage civil code

 Cache   
BEIJING – It was only after her partner’s death that He Meili realized the full meaning of marriage.

As a lesbian couple in China, He and Li Qin kept their ties largely unspoken, sometimes introducing themselves as cousins. This rarely bothered He until Li succumbed to complications from lupus in 2016, and Li’s parents demanded that He hand over the deed for their apartment and other property documents under Li’s name.

He, a 51-year-old nonprofit worker in southern China’s Guangzhou city, has joined LGBT activists and supporters in an appeal to lawmakers to allow same-sex marriage, using a state-sanctioned channel to skirt recent government moves to suppress collective action.

“I realized if LGBT people don’t have the right to marry, we have no legal protections,” she said. “Others will also experience what I did – and be left with nothing.”

Under Chinese President Xi Jinping, space for civil society and advocacy has shrunk. Human rights activists and their lawyers have been detained, while internet censorship has increased. LGBT activists have turned to a novel tactic: submitting statements to the National People’s Congress, China’s legislature, which is soliciting opinions from the public on a draft of the “Marriage and Family” portion of the Civil Code through Friday.

“A lot of people told me that this is the first time they’ve participated in the legal process,” said Peng Yanzi, director of LGBT Rights Advocacy China, one of several groups running the campaign.

The Marriage and Family section is among six draft regulations for which the legislature began seeking comments at the end of October. As of Thursday afternoon, the website showed that more than 200,000 suggestions had been submitted either online or by mail, the greatest number of any of the outstanding drafts. It was not clear what proportion of the suggestions pertained to same-sex marriage.

In social media posts, campaign participants held up their Express Mail Service envelopes along with rainbow Pride flags. In their suggestions, they shared stories of coming out, the challenge of gaining family members’ acceptance and running into legal roadblocks when trying to share their lives with someone of the same sex.

A teacher wrote about experiencing discrimination at his workplace; others wrote about not being allowed to make medical decisions for their ailing partners.

“This is not just a symbolic gesture,” Peng said. “It really has an impact on our everyday lives.”

Peng’s organization has outlined a desired revision to the language in the Civil Code, changing the terms throughout from “husband and wife” to “spouses” and from “men and women” to “the two parties.” Rather than adding specific language about same-sex marriage, the revisions seek to eliminate gendered terms from the legislation.

Although activists and experts acknowledge that legalizing same-sex marriage is still a far-off reality in China, they said appeals through the official channel will push the government to take the demand more seriously.

“There’s a near-zero chance the suggested changes will be accepted and implemented, but this campaign makes China’s LGBT community’s demands for equality harder to ignore,” said Darius Longarino, a senior fellow at Yale Law School’s Paul Tsai China Center who has worked on legal reform programs promoting LGBT rights in China.

“Calls for gay marriage often get dismissed as being too marginal and unimportant to get onto the political agenda, or as being inconsistent with Chinese traditional culture,” Longarino said.

Few legal protections are available for same-sex couples in China. One party can apply to be the other’s legal guardian, but those accompanying rights are just a fraction of those enjoyed by married couples, Longarino said. He gave the example of a lesbian woman who bears a child in China, with no way for her partner to become a second legally recognized parent of that baby.

At a briefing in August, a spokesman for the National People’s Congress Standing Committee’s Legislative Affairs Commission suggested that same-sex marriage does not suit Chinese society.

“China’s current marriage system is built on the basis of a man and a woman becoming husband and wife,” said Zang Tiewei, director of the commission’s research department, when asked whether same-sex marriage will be legalized.

“This regulation is in line with China’s national conditions and historical and cultural traditions,” Zang said. “As far as I know, at the moment most countries in the world don’t recognize the legality of same-sex marriage.”

LGBT advocates have garnered growing support from the Chinese public, using social media to raise awareness even as they face frequent censorship. They won a victory over the censors in April 2018, when one of the country’s top social networking sites backtracked on a plan to restrict content related to LGBT issues. Users flooded Weibo with hashtags such as “#I’mGayNotaPervert” after the Twitter-like platform said “pornographic, violent or gay” subject matter would be reviewed.

But misconceptions and discrimination persist. A 2015 survey by the Beijing LGBT Center found that 35% of mental health professionals in a sample group of nearly 1,000 believed that being gay is a mental illness. Around the same percentage supported the use of conversion therapy. When Bohemian Rhapsody, the hit biopic about Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury, came to China, viewers were treated to a version without any references to Mercury’s sexuality or his struggle with AIDS.

Hua Zile, the chief editor of an LGBT-focused Weibo account with 1.69 million followers, said he hasn’t publicized the same-sex marriage campaign on his microblog because he worries about the dispiriting effect it will have on the LGBT community when it inevitably fails.

“We can’t reach the sky in a single leap,” Hua said. “We should try to make progress step-by-step, or else we’ll constantly be disappointed.”

After He’s partner passed away, it pained her to think about how they kept their status in the shadows.

Through their 12-year relationship, it was He who accompanied Li on doctor’s visits. She stayed with her at the hospital when lupus made her nauseous and delirious with fever, and she helped her reach their fourth-floor walk-up after her legs grew weak.

In He’s mind, they were married. But in reality, many people didn’t even know they were dating.

Friends told He that she could file a lawsuit to recover some of her and Li’s shared property. She hired a lawyer to start the process, which required painstaking documentation of their relationship and signed statements from their neighbors and friends attesting to their long-term bond.

“It was like tearing open a wound over and over again,” He said. “I had to keep coming out about my sexuality. If we were married, all of this would be understood.”

In the end, He gave up on the lawsuit. It was too exhausting, she said, to have to prove their love to everyone.


          

Woodstock High School student attends United Nations entrepreneur summit

 Cache   
A Woodstock High School senior said she was inspired by her visit to the United Nations for the annual Women’s Entrepreneurship Summit in New York City.

Destiny Flores was selected by business teacher Dustin Smith to attend the conference during the weekend of Nov. 15 as a guest of Jen Soulé, president of Woodstock-based Other World Computing. The Mac and PC technology firm brought Flores and another teenage girl to the summit from Woodstock and Austin, Texas, where the company has another office.

“It was amazing,” Flores said. “There was a lot going on. I’d never been to New York before. It was very busy, and everyone was very professional, but I felt like I fit in with that business environment.”

“I met a lot of really good people,” she added.

Flores said she learned a lot from panel discussions on topics such as microloans, women in technology and how to properly invest.

“It was good to hear that these very successful women felt like even young girls like myself are something that’s worth investing in because we’re able to use both our decision-making skills and also see the emotional side of things, not just the numbers,” Flores said.

She said Soulé, who participated in a panel discussion about female entrepreneurs in the technology industry, was inspiring as a powerful woman in a smaller town like Woodstock who overcame perceptions about women in a leadership role.

“Women across the globe are statistically the world’s most responsible borrowers, paying back microbusiness loans at a rate of 97%, and they put 90% of their earnings into providing for their families and their children’s education,” Soulé said. “We are honored to take part in this event, to continue to support the advancement of women globally, and to be able to bring a few inventive young women with us to New York, as they will be the next generation to take on the mantle of making a difference worldwide.”

Smith said Destiny was an excellent student in his INCubator class and an obvious choice for the summit because of her drive, passion and love of networking.

“Destiny was the first one who came to mind. She’s really passionate about women entrepreneurs,” he said. “She’s extremely passionate about business. She’s probably taken every business class we have to offer.”

Destiny said she hopes to attend Illinois State University next fall and major in business administration with a minor in art history. Her dream is to open her own art gallery someday.


          

8 days after request, Lincoln Museum shipped Gettysburg Address to Texas

 Cache   
SPRINGFIELD – Only eight days after a nonprofit organization founded by conservative commentator Glenn Beck requested it be lent a priceless, handwritten copy of the Gettysburg Address to display at a “pop-up” museum in Dallas, Texas, the staff at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum had the document packed and ready to move.

The man who is said to have overseen and expedited that loan was fired in September by Democratic Gov. JB Pritzker, and the state’s Office of the Inspector General released a report Friday revealing it recommended that termination.

“The people of Illinois are fortunate that the Gettysburg Address and other artifacts ultimately returned safely to the ALPLM in June 2018, despite the risks that were taken,” the report concluded.

The report details that former ALPLM Executive Director Alan Lowe “mismanaged” the museum by lending one of five existing copies of the Gettysburg Address that was handwritten by President Abraham Lincoln – which is valued at $20 million – to Mercury One, “an inexperienced, unaccredited and unknown museum.”

The report said Lowe was contacted by Beck, who was interested in helping the museum pay down about $9 million in outstanding debt remaining from a $25 million purchase of what is known as the Taper collection in 2007.

The museum eventually received $50,869.60 in proceeds from the loan.

But the report said the risk far outweighed the small reward. The move was allowed despite a lack of written security and storage details about the destination facility, according to the report, which also said the document was handled by untrained professionals. Its installment at the Mercury One facility also apparently was livestreamed on Facebook.  

Investigators found Lowe said the loan to Mercury One also was about publicity.

“When asked how the loan benefited the state of Illinois, Mr. Lowe said that the people of Illinois want the ALPLM to be a nationally and internationally recognized institution, rather than a ‘mom-and-pop shop, where people come and look at a cabinet of curiosities,’ ” according to the report.

But several circumstances surrounding the loan – its quick turnaround, Lowe’s unwillingness to listen to staff, problems with the insurance certificate and lack of documentation – led investigators to call for Lowe’s immediate removal.

According to the report, Historic Preservation Agency standards were put in place in 2013 to prohibit any future loans of the Gettysburg Address because of its age, worth and condition. That agency, however, was abolished by executive order in 2017 by former Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner.

Although that executive order made ALPLM its own state agency directly responsible to the governor, it also called for the governor to appoint a board of trustees to oversee the museum. No appointments to that board were made at the time of the loan, however, and the governor’s office apparently was not consulted, according to the report.

According to testimony outlined in the report, Lowe used the absence of a board to justify his complete control over the lending process. Pritzker has since appointed all 11 members to the board, which is led by former U.S. Rep. Ray LaHood. It will oversee the appointment of Lowe’s successor.

Carla Smith, the museum’s registrar, testified, according to the report, that most loans require at least six months’ advance notice before an item can be released. The Gettysburg Address was released eight days after an informal request was made.

Smith also testified that the museum never received a Standard Facility Report from Mercury One. That document is an industrywide report detailing storage plans, humidity levels, security precautions and other important aspects of the receiving facility that are expected to be completed if any loans are to take place.

The report also noted that Lowe and Michael Little, then the museum’s chief operating officer, accepted travel and lodging reimbursements from Mercury One on a trip they made to Texas for the unveiling of the exhibit. Per the report, those reimbursements were accepted without approval from ethics officers.

“Both Mr. Lowe and Mr. Little traveled to Texas at Mercury One’s expense in June 2018; neither took the time to oversee the Gettysburg Address and other artifacts being uncrated, installed or repacked while they were there, but rather were there in ‘marketing mode,’ engaging and interacting with people Mercury One brought in for the exhibit. These networking opportunities may have provided Mr. Lowe connections for his consulting business, and likely led to employment for Mr. Little at Mercury One,” according to the report.

Little, who later was hired by Mercury One, also was found to have “intentionally interfered with an [inspector general’s office] revolving door investigation conducted under the Ethics Act,” by claiming he had no contact with Mercury One employees in the year before his Dec. 5, 2018, departure as a state employee.

“Those statements were false. To the contrary, over less than three months in 2018, Mr. Little exchanged approximately 53 emails with Mercury One staff, including his new supervisor, Mercury One Executive Director Suzanne Grishman, about matters unrelated to his prospective employment at Mercury One,” the report stated.

The report also found that Lowe maintains a consulting business related to archives, museums and public policy centers, and has served on an advisory board for Mercury One since 2018, “at the same time he continued advocating for the ALPLM to make additional loans to Mercury One.”

The report said Lowe, who was hired in 2016 to lead the ALPLM, denied receiving any compensation from Mercury One.

Two further loans for Lincoln artifacts to the company were denied by ALPLM in 2018 and 2019 because of new protocols that were put into place after the Gettysburg Address loan.

Call for applications: Women in Politics – confidence, influence and effective leadership

 Cache   

 
Background:

As key global players and partners in the full implementation of the Women Peace and Security (WPS) agenda, the United Nations and European Union consistently promote gender equality, women's empowerment and women's rights in line with UN Security Council resolution 1325 and the nine other resolutions on WPS. The EU Council conclusions on Women, Peace and Security adopted on 10 December 2018, state that implementation of the WPS agenda can only be achieved by “integrating a gender perspective and women's participation in all contexts, from conflict analysis to subsequent actions, including dialogue facilitation, mediation, peace negotiations and other conflict prevention and resolution tools.” 

Almost twenty years after the adoption of UNSCR 1325, women in Kosovo remain underrepresented in decision-making bodies at central and local levels despite the presence of well-established women’s networks, highly-effective women leaders and an advanced legislative framework that obliges legislative, executive and judicial bodies to adopt and implement special measures to ensure equal representation of women and men. While the 30 per cent quotas under the electoral laws are met in Kosovo Parliament and Municipal Assemblies, the requirement of equal participation of men and women under the Law on Gender Equality has not been met. Very few women occupy decision making positions in political parties. Women's representation at government remains below the legal requirement of 50 per cent. At the local level, although there was a percentage point increase in the representation of women in Municipal Assemblies, there are no women holding mayoral positions. This was also noted in the 2019 EU progress Report along with the lack of implementation of the respective legal framework. In addition, women’s limited participation in current political negotiations in the broader region, including Kosovo, has been highlighted as a concern by the EU and in recent reports of the United Nations Secretary-General on Kosovo. 

Project Description:

The project consists of three different components with a focus on enabling women to reflect about their experiences, to examine their patterns of behaviour that might be standing in their way towards more full participation in the public life in Kosovo and to distinguish these from the structural limitations to exercising their leadership more fully.

 

First, a five-day leadership training for 15 women leaders and influencers will be held in Pristina between 9-13 December 2019. It will blend elements of personal self-discovery, practical skills and leadership strategies to master challenges in the workplace and public life (including political parties and offices). During the training a personalized learning and roadmap will be developed for each participant followed by coaching sessions. The coaching sessions will be provided to all the women individually. Second, the selected 15 women will participate at a networking event that will be organized in Brussels (in February 2019). This two-day study visit will be an opportunity for the women leaders to meet with other prominent women from the EU institutions (Commission, Parliament) and the European Women's Lobby. The networking will enable the women to establish contacts and future cooperation in the field of empowerment of women and gender equality. Third, a workshop on “Good Governance and accountability” with special focus on gender responsive and inclusive political processes will be held in Pristina in February 2019. In this workshop participants will discuss how to ensure that the principles of inclusive, accountable governance go beyond rhetoric, be that in government institutions, within the political parties, in civil society organizations, media and other spheres of public life.

Who is CHE Proximity

More than ever before the medium, the message and it's sequencing are inseparable from each other.

‘Unlike any time in history, connecting the medium, the message, and its sequencing to the consumer is more vital than ever.

Connected creativity is the synchronization of strategic positioning, engaging creative, combined with the next generation of engagement planning to ensure ideas create the cut-through needed to deliver the strongest commercial performances. Today, creativity cannot be left to chance. One brand expression or big TV ad is simply not enough.

More than ever, brands need to live in culture and our consumers worlds, allowing audiences to not only consume brands, but take part in owning, creating and amplifying them. To do this, the role of influencers, publishers, the news and bought media are inseparable from each other and the expression of the idea itself. To create such work, the classic disciplines of the marketing mix – advertising, experience, PR, CRM, media, digital – must all be unified, removing P&Ls, biases and incumbency to reveal a new breed of agnostic agency, resulting in connected creativity.

At CHE Proximity, we see this as the shift from brand as advertising to brand as experience. It is as profound a change in advertising as the printing press was to the democratisation of information. We are investing our every effort into leading this transformation and in doing so, supporting the sustainability of our cherished industry as an essential ingredient of modern commerce.

This is what we call Connected Creativity.

Reviews from Michael_Novakhov (3 sites): Michael Novakhov from Michael_Novakhov (17 sites): Michael Novakhov - SharedNewsLinks℠: Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘pimp’ Ghislaine Maxwell’s ‘biggest mistake’ | The Weekly Times

 Cache   
Michael_Novakhov shared this story from Search | The Weekly Times.

The alleged victims of deceased billionaire Jeffrey Epstein spoke to the media after testifying against him in court.

Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘pimp’ Ghislaine Maxwell’s ‘biggest mistake’

Ghislaine Maxwell’s “biggest mistake” was luring Prince Andrew's accuser into her and paedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s depraved world, according to a friend.

The 57-year-old, accused of being Epstein's "pimp", is said to “not give a s**t” about Virginia Roberts-Giuffre and the scores of other girls that Epstein abused, The Sun reports.

According to a family friend, Maxwell feared that the legal action launched by Ms Roberts-Giuffre, who now lives in Australia, would expose her network of powerful friends which she spent years building and protecting.

Laura Goldman, 61, a former New York City stockbroker who mixed in the same social circles as Maxwell, said the alleged madam was “undoubtedly” the brains behind Epstein’s predatory schemes as she was much more intelligent, well connected and charming that he was.

“Ghislaine was hysterical about the defamation suit Virginia Roberts launched,” she said.

“That suit made her nutso. She saw that as a threat to her whole network of famous friends.

“Ghislaine said her ‘biggest mistake’ was ever involving Virginia. Ghislaine doesn’t give a s**t about the girls like Virginia who suffered, she is more worried about exposing her network.”

Ms Goldman said she last saw Maxwell about 10 years ago, but still shares mutual friends with her – and remains friends with the socialite's sister Isabel Maxwell.

She said she attended many events with Epstein and Maxwell in the 1990s and even attended one of the billionaire’s infamous parties at his home in Florida – which was packed with “young girls”.

“I got invited to attend by a male friend who was going," Ms Goldman recalled.

"It was back in the ‘90s. I got there and there were lots of married men without their wives and young girls all over.

“Prince Andrew wasn’t there. I didn’t think the girls were underage but they probably were in retrospect.

“Jeffrey’s house in New York was very lavish but his Florida place wasn’t. It was away from the beach and at the end of a road.

“It was not a party for a woman to be a guest at and I was uncomfortable. Because of that I didn’t want to go to any of his New York events because I knew there was just something wrong about it.

“After Jeffrey was arrested the first time back in 2008 I didn’t want any more to do with either him or Ghislaine after that.”

Ms Goldman also criticised Prince Andrew – who has always denied Ms Roberts-Giuffre’s claims to have had sex with the royal when she was 17 or knowledge of Epstein's activities – for not realising what the scores of young girls at Epstein’s events were really there for.

She said: “I think Prince Andrew is a dolt. He lives in a different world and may well have thought those girls were servants but obviously, they weren’t.

“He is part of a world of people who think they are entitled to get whatever they want. It’s a different reality to most people.

"They believe it’s all coming to them and the world owes it to them.”

Ms Goldman also told of her surprise when Maxwell was pictured at an In-N-Out burger restaurant in Los Angeles in July.

Maxwell is believed to have been photographed by her lawyer, Leah Saffian, whose dog appeared to be with the socialite – and whose metadata was linked to the picture.

Ms Saffian has kept a low profile since the allegations but The Sun pictured her ironically going through the drive-through of her local In-N-Out burger joint in Los Angeles this weekend.

“Ghislaine does not eat at In-N-Out. She is obsessed with her figure. She always used to make a very offensive joke that she was on a ‘Holocaust diet," Ms Goldman revealed.

“I couldn’t believe she would allow the first picture of her for however long to be at a fast food restaurant. I was shocked.

“I bet it was the first time she had ever been there. She’s very, very vain.”

It comes after Ms Goldman said Maxwell was "sex obsessed" and has managed to find herself a new boyfriend.

Telling how she became close to the Maxwell family, Ms Goldman said: “My parents are Holocaust survivors and Isabel does a great deal of work talking about the Holocaust.

“The Maxwells lost something like 300 members of their family in the Holocaust and as a family they have done a lot for the state of Israel.

“I was always active in the Jewish community scene so that’s how I got to know Isabel. I’ve travelled with her to Israel and people would literally stand up when she walked into a room, her family commands respect.

“I didn’t get to know Isabel’s twin sister Christine who live in Dallas but I knew of her because she is a Holocaust academic, too,” she said.

“I got to know Jeffrey through academic circles at first. He had links to universities I was also associated with.

“Back then in the 1990s there were all kinds of parties in New York and there used to be a joke in the early days that Ghislaine would show up to the opening of an envelope.

“She would literally be at every event, networking. That was her job. No-one actually knew what she did for a living. Going to parties and meeting people was her thing. She was everywhere.

“She always wore nice and expensive clothes. Then she started to be with Jeffrey at events. I think she was attracted to him for all sorts of reasons,” Ms Goldman added.

“For a start he was a very domineering character, like her father Robert. And she wanted money. The kind she was used to before her father died. I myself wasn’t really her cup of tea, I wasn’t fancy enough."

Maxwell has denied any wrongdoing.

After its resounding success last year, HEC Paris, ranked number 3 worldwide in Executive Education by The Financial Times in 2019, held its second edition of Entrepreneurship Day for all participants of the HEC Paris International Executive MBA (EMBA) Class of 2020 at Tornado Tower.

The event provided the perfect platform for industry experts to share their expertise with the participants and discuss the initiatives they have in place to support local entrepreneurs.

“It gives me immense pleasure to welcome all the participants and distinguished speakers from key organizations to the Entrepreneurship Day for the second year in a row,” said Abdallah Abdel-Daem, Director of Degree Programs, HEC Paris in Qatar. “Carrying on from where we left off last year, HEC Paris in Qatar has once again expressed its contribution by training and educating the local professionals in bringing new ideas and approaches and helping Qatar to achieve the National Vision 2030. I am sure that this day is going to become a permanent fixture in the years to come and lead to some significant developments in the future.”

The speakers, who provided the participants with valuable insights, included Aysha Khalifa Al Romaihi, Head of Strategic Initiatives and Business Collaborations, Qatar Business Incubation Center; H.E.

[BONUS] Oscar Special: Conversations on Controversies

 Cache   

One of the most divisive controversies in the Oscar race this season has been the fact that for the second consecutive year, no people of color were nominated in any of the acting categories. This topic has been thoroughly discussed in all sorts of blogs and podcasts; so in my constant quest to stand out from the pack, I deliberately chose NOT to make a regular Radio Film School episode about the topic.

But as an African American filmmaker, I felt I would be remiss if I didn’t contribute to the conversation in some way. But I want to do it in a way that hasn't been quite done before.

Today's bonus includes TWO conversations sharing FOUR perspectives on the topic, all falling on varying degrees of the spectrum.

First is an excerpt from my interview on the NSavides Podcast, hosted by Nick Savides. Nick and I got into a discussion about the topic and he was gracious enough to let me post that Oscar portion of our discussion on my show. I strongly encourage you to listen to my full interview with Nick on his podcast. We cover a wide range of topics about passion projects, networking, finding clients, processing feedback, and so much more.

Second, show regulars JD & Yolanda Cochran (indie filmmaker and former Alcon Entertainment executive, respectively) join me in a provocative debate/discussion about racial representation, how Oscar voting works, boycotts, and possible solutions.

Over 90 minutes of engaging and invigorating conversation that will give you pause to think...no matter which side of the controversy you stand.

JOIN THE CONVERSATION at facebook.com/radiofilmschool

Enjoy!

Universal Standard launches concept shop in NYC

 Cache   

Dubbed 'Universal Standard 1:1' – a new experiential retail space “for all of US, as we are," the space was designed to be both a shopping space and a community space.
 
Located on the fourth floor at 192 Mercer Street, customers can come to shop in-store or reserve the community space for personalized gatherings such as dinners, networking, book clubs, and exhibitions. Universal Standard will also host its own curated programming and community events with local brands, artists, and organizations for unique events and gatherings. 
 
“Everything is changing. Shopping in a physical space needs to be about much more than the purchase transaction,” said Alex Waldman, Universal Standard co-founder and COO, in a news statement. 
 
“Bringing delight and value beyond the product is everything. We wanted to create a space our customers felt was theirs as well – their pied a terre in the heart of every city a 1:1 exists.”
 
The 1:1 spaces are also available to customers for free.
 
“There are no rental fees, no membership fees because we have learned that generosity is never wasted on our customers. Universal Standard is about access – period – and the community we see coming together in these spaces all over the country is everything we intended to bring into being when we started our company,” added Waldman. 
 
The New York City location is the company’s fifth, after Seattle, Chicago, Portland and Houston. Meanwhile, the company plans for ten more openings over the next 12 months.
 
The fashion brand was founded by Polina Veksler and Alexandra Waldman with the overarching mission of “Fashion Freedom” and style without size barriers.

Uganda is now taxing its citizens for access to social media (no replies)

 Cache   
Uganda is now taxing its citizens for access to social media
As of July 1, Ugandans no longer have free access to social media platforms, having to pay a daily tax to maintain access to 58 sites and apps, including Facebook, Twitter, Signal, and Youtube.

The imposed levy has garnered intense criticism both in Uganda and around the world, calling the move an attempt by the government to censor online speech.

What is Uganda’s social media tax?
The tax, approved as part of Uganda’s national budget on June 1, requires all users who wish to access voice and messaging services deemed by the government as “Over The Top” like Facebook, Twitter, and WhatsApp to pay 200 Ugandan shillings or five cents “per user per day of access.”

To be able to use these apps, Ugandans have to pay the equivalent of five cents a day, or 18.25 dollars a year to connect to any of their preferred social networking sites—no small sum when the country’s GDP per capita is at 604 dollars.

Most Ugandans access the internet through their mobile phones and will pay the tax through mobile phone operators via individual SIM cards. The number associated with the SIM card is already verified with the owner’s national ID, inextricably linking the phone to the personal details of the owner.

Why is Uganda taxing social media use?
The Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni has labeled such voice and messaging services as “over the top (OTT)” arguing that these sites and apps are used for “gossip” and that such social media use is a “luxury item” and should be taxed.

A more likely reason behind this tax has come from critics, who have called the tax an attempt to rob Ugandans of their freedom of speech online, while virtually blocking online access to some of the country’s most impoverished.

This isn’t the first time Uganda has tried blocking access to social media—during their 2016 elections, the government blocked social media for several days, preventing voices opposing incumbent Museveni’s re-election. Museveni has been Uganda’s president since 1986.

How is this affecting Ugandans?
Worryingly, the tax’s intended effect on limiting social media use is already visible. According to a report by a Kampala-based communications firm, total social media usage dropped by 11%, and 71% reported extreme inconvenience since the taxes came into effect. 57% of respondents now use a VPN.

So far, there are no apparent plans to exempt social media use that isn’t deemed “gossip.” Whether this is intended or just plain ineptitude is unclear, but the tax nonetheless stops educators, small businesses, and researchers, and anyone involved in non-”gossip” from accessing platforms that are crucial to their work.

Ugandans are fighting back for net neutrality
While the tax has restricted online criticism of the government, several users are suing the Uganda Communications Commission, Uganda Revenue Authority, and the country’s Attorney General for limiting the fundamental right to freedom of speech, as well as harming businesses that rely on social media platforms.

The petition, filed by the Kampala-based Cyber Law Initiative non-profit is unlikely to be heard any time soon, with Uganda’s courts full to the brim, making a verdict on this case unlikely within the next year.

A VPN and a court case are, however, not enough to plaster over the accelerating corrosion of online free speech in Uganda.

A worrying sign of what the internet might become?
For countries that do not have net neutrality, there is room for similar legislation to be put in place to prevent access to sites and apps that give people the freedom to speak out.

Uganda may be the first to impose a social media tax, but several countries have already imposed restrictions on social platforms. Earlier this year Tanzania introduced regulations that require bloggers to pay $930 a year for a blog license—prohibitively expensive for a country whose GDP per capita is at $936.

With governments and corporations keen to control what the public sees and does in their favor, our fundamental right to the freedom of speech and expression will diminish with what was once a neutral online space. Needless to say, the fight for net neutrality has never been more important.
When comes to the issue of online privacy and security, let recommend a toof called Buy VPN. RitaVPN is a relatively new VPN service, but it’s already making a name for itself. Its features include split tunneling, double encryption, kill switch protection, makes it one of the best VPN in 2019. Qwer432

A Network's Weakest Link May be Different Than you Think

 Cache   

When asked which part of their network is the weakest or most unreliable, I’d be willing to bet that most network admins would respond by naming network segments that have commonly lagged behind from a technological perspective. Yet because so much attention has been put on improving the technologies in these specific areas, others have become neglected. What many will soon discover is that the less reliable and more problematic parts of their network have shifted toward areas that were previously "rock-solid." Let's look at why this shift has happened, where it’s likely to form, and what can be done to avoid it.

Where businesses have been focusing time and money improving their network

Enterprise-grade network technologies and services have come a long way in the past decade. Network services that were previously considered "best effort" -- such as Wi-Fi -- are now considered as reliable as wired counterparts. This is due to improvements in wireless protocol standards, antenna improvements, and better wireless deployments using predictive propagation and site survey tools. Two other parts of the network commonly thought to be weak links are the wide-area network (WAN) and internet edge. Yet, broadband carrier services, including Internet connectivity and private WAN links, have improved dramatically in recent years. Customers that migrated away from legacy T1, T3, and ATM circuit technologies to modern metro Ethernet and MPLS links for data transport not only benefit from performance gains -- they also see far fewer outages. Additionally, SD-WAN technology improvements and price drops now mean that even mid-sized organizations can use these advanced network performance and resiliency technologies with far less complexity and management overhead.

While strides have clearly been made by putting time, money and focus on upgrading wireless networks, the WAN and Internet edge, it has come at the expense of the campus LAN -- and in some cases -- the data center. It's not uncommon to see businesses that continuously upgrade their WLAN to the latest technologies every two to three years while choosing to stick with the same core, distribution, access, and data center switches in their corporate LAN for a 5, 6, or even 10 years. While this does attest to the impressive reliability and performance that LAN and data center technologies have held over the WLAN and network edge hardware/software, cracks in the LAN are clearly starting to show. Thus, it's important to begin shifting some focus off Wi-Fi, and the edge -- and instead put it back on the campus LAN.

LAN technologies you don't have, but should

Technologies like link aggregation have made it relatively easy for network architects to keep up with growing bandwidth demands of end devices and between switch uplinks. But at some point, the time will come where even this is no longer enough. This is especially true when looking at bandwidth-intensive IoT projects that are likely to be coming our way. Thus, the need to migrate toward multi-gigabit copper and fiber technologies will be an absolute must. Despite the fact that moving to 2.5, 5, and 10 Gbps multi-gig twisted pair cabling and 25, 40 and 100 Gbps fiber Ethernet will require major hardware upgrades, these upgrades are long overdue in many cases.

Looking a bit further down the road, entire LAN switching architectures will need to be revamped in favor of new software-defined and intent-based technologies. No longer will networks be designed and configured to route through decentralized, hop-by-hop routers and switches. Instead, the entire corporate LAN will be centrally managed from a configuration and management/maintenance perspective.

Lastly, the corporate LAN has also been neglected from a data security perspective. The encryption, access control, and granular visibility that is common in modern WLANs and at the WAN/Internet edge are often surprisingly missing on the LAN. Bad actors are quickly discovering that the LAN is now the weak point and often only must find a way to plug in to gain access to sensitive business information.

Where will your focus be in 2020?

If you’ve been spending time and money bolstering wireless and remote site/internet connectivity from a reliability and security standpoint over the past few years, it may be time to shift that focus back on the campus LAN. New advancements in switching hardware, software, and security have progressed to the point where upgrades will be very noticeable from both an end-user and management perspective. Thus, changes to the corporate LAN and data center will not only refresh a much-neglected part of your network – it will also set the stage toward full, end-to-end management and visibility. Not only the campus local area network but also the WAN, WLAN, and Internet edge as well.

From anti to alter-globalization

 Cache

By the end of the 1980s, various cracks began to appear in the global neoliberal edifice. Partially, they were triggered by early crises that erupted in Mexico, Brazil, Thailand, and Russia, among other countries. The impact of the so-called Washington consensus was making itself felt in the form of massive cuts to public services and jobs and financial shifts that allowed big finance to profit from public and private debt, in addition to privatization and deregulation that put trade unions and other social movements on the defensive. The various fragmented revolts in the 80s were a harbinger of what was to come.

Origins

At the beginning of 1994, the little known southern province of Mexico gained international attention. In Chiapas, the peasant-indigenous population took to the streets under the banner of the Zapatista Liberation Army (EZLN). It was a big surprise, even to the Mexican state, which was taken aback by the scale of the protest and the fact that it was widely supported, even outside Chiapas. The EZLN adopted a new language that distinguished it from earlier liberation movements, emphasizing a non-statist view, local autonomy and non-hierarchical structures. This discourse gained currency worldwide through emerging social media and annual conferences held in the jungles of Chiapas. At the same time, huge protest marches were organized all over Europe and North America against the World Bank, the IMF and WTO, which encountered an exceptionally large gathering of angry protestors at its meeting in Seattle in the fall of 1998. The “Battle of Seattle” was unique in the sense that it brought together a wide variety of social movements, from teamsters (trade unions) to “turtles” (environmental campaigns). In the Americas, north and south, this inaugurated a series of struggles that led to the massive People’s Summit in Québec City in 2001.

The ascending phase

This was not yet a movement, but rather a vast tapestry of initiatives in opposition to neoliberal globalization. These struggles revitalized a number of left-wing think-tanks, publications and organizations in the North. In South America, meanwhile, mass pro-democracy movements were offering real resistance to authoritarian regimes. Coalitions in Brazil, Venezuela, Argentina and later Bolivia and Ecuador came together with a strong grass-roots push and by the beginning of the new millennium, Pink Tide governments were established in many countries. It was during this turbulent phase that movements from the Global North, inspired by developments in the Global South, conceived the idea of creating a platform to recharge policy debates and explore the contours of new visions of social transformation. This laid the groundwork for the World Social Forum. Brazilian-led, the WSF had no clear and explicit strategy, but there was a consensus around the need to build a new framework of analysis. For several years after the founding event, hundreds of thousands of movements and people met in Brazil, and later in India, Mali, Tunisia, Kenya and many other countries, with the aim of developing an alter-globalization perspective.

The WSF process was original because it was an open space where participants themselves were to define the agenda through self-organized political and cultural activities. Much of the work involved drafting an alternative economic program based on the revitalization of the public sector, the decommodification of basic goods and services, new fiscal and financial mechanisms to push back inequalities, local non-market enterprises and the like. At the same time, there was much discussion of how to “democratize democracy,” how to struggle against gender, generational and ethnic discrimination, and how to change the rules of the game to wrest space and opportunities for meaningful citizen participation within the framework of liberal democracy. These immense brainstorming sessions were carried out by many social movements that also took advantage of the WSF to create new international and action-oriented networks, such as Via Campesina and the World March of Women. The WSF methodology was also adopted by hundreds of national and municipal forums in which citizens had a chance to act, play, speak out and express their hopes. It thus helped to bring movements together, create new dynamics and give rise to new projects. One such successful forum was organized in Ottawa in 2012. The Peoples’ Social Forum brought together a critical mass of movements from Canada, Québec and Indigenous communities for the first time in Canadian history.

In its ascending phase, alterglobalization was at once a rallying point for social movements, a political program for the most advanced progressive parties, a living laboratory involving millions of professors, students, intellectuals and artists. It also benefited from concrete support by Pink Tide governments, and particularly Brazil and Venezuela.

Uncertain times

In 2008, global capitalism suffered its most severe crisis since 1929. It shook the Global North first, and within a few years mass mobilizations erupted under the banner of Occupy Wall Street (in Canada and the United States), the Indignados (in Spain and other southern European countries) before crossing the Mediterranean in a historic movement that led to the implosion of long-standing dictatorships, mainly in Egypt and Tunisia. In many ways, these diverse movements all travelled the paths opened up in South America and through the WSF. Unlike in South America, however, they did not have a political counterpart and in the absence of either a European or Maghreb-Mackrek pink tide, the revolts did not succeed in reversing the trends. The countries of the Global North were thus able to steady themselves without too much effort, and the countries of the Global South fell into the grip of resuscitated dictatorship (with the exception of Tunisia). Even where social movements grew strong (in Spain and Greece, for example), the edifice of power was able to withstand the challenge by a combination of local/national reactionary offensives, on the one hand, and international intervention by undemocratic neoliberal institutions, on the other. This counteroffensive also led to the demise of many pink-tide countries – Brazil and Venezuela in particular – which were unable to resist the reactionary assaults in addition to being weakened by their own limitations and contradictions. The World Social Forum was deeply affected by this new and debilitating correlation of forces. The traditional South American leadership of the WSF was blindsided by growing divisions between movements and between movements and pink-tide governments. The WSF in Tunis (2015), Montreal (2016) and Salvador de Bahia (2018) were interesting events, but they lacked the energy and enthusiasm of the past, falling into a bit of a rut rather than innovating and exploring new avenues.

Looking ahead

Although the historic alterglobalization moment has now passed, its ideas and achievements continue to inspire and we can detect its legacy in new forms of resistance. In many countries, admittedly, popular movements are on the defensive and social-democratic reforms are being repealed, while new forms of authoritarianism or “austeritarism” are being imposed. Yet if we look at the situation through a wide-angle lens, we can see expanding cracks in the system, with uprisings multiplying, as in China (Hong Kong), Chile, Sudan, Lebanon, Iraq, Argentina, Algeria, and Columbia. In many more countries, we are seeing ripples that portend big transformative waves. Social movements in many places have become more astute, employing new decentralized strategies. Many have taken the battle for Pachamama to the next level, announcing loudly and clearly that the problem, as Naomi Klein stresses, is not the climate but capitalism. At the same time, an international conversation continues via new forms of networking, such as the Great Transition conference (Montreal, May 2020), the World Social Forum on Transformative Economics (Barcelona, June 2020), the Global Forum on Migration and Development (Quito, January 2020), among many other events and developments. It is still too early, however, to hail the rise of an Alterglobalization 2.0.

Who is reinventing the left?

In the meantime, many left-wing political parties are evolving, scrapping the legacy of past sectarianism, as we have seen, for instance, in the United States (Democratic Socialists of America), Quebec (Québec Solidaire), Chile (Frente Amplio), and England (Momentum). The dark clouds of militarism, racism and fascism are looming everywhere, as evidenced most recently in Bolivia. But in all these places, the power struggles are complex, not predetermined, allowing creative movements to regroup, transcend their past experiences and invent new forms of political and social mobilization. Much more than in past, women, youth and marginalized communities are taking the lead. It is most probably an “interregnum,” to use Gramsci’s phrase, between the black hole of mass destruction and the hope for emancipation.

Twenty Years After Seattle: Dispensing with Myths

 Cache   

On November 30, 1999, protesters engaged police and delegates to the World Trade Organization (WTO) conference in Seattle, Washington. Photo courtest of Crimethink.

This column is part of #ShutdownWTO20, a collection of histories and reflections from people directly involved in organizing the Seattle mass direct action in 1999.

November 30, 2019, will mark twenty years since “Seattle 1999.” This week of mass direct action, involving tens of thousands of people, successfully undermined the Seattle Ministerial of the World Trade Organization and helped to propel a critical public discussion about neoliberalism.

Over the last two decades, counterproductive myths have developed around the Battle of Seattle. Now is a good time to dispense with them. One way to do this is to revisit the history from the perspective of those who were involved in organizing the mass direct action. I was one among them – at that time, a 22 year-old activist living in Olympia, Washington. Along with dozens of others, I helped found the Direct Action Network (DAN) and spent months organizing for the protests.

There are three myths about Seattle that are especially harmful. The first is that what we did was altogether new. In fact, our efforts were inspired by and followed in the footsteps of militant movements in the global South, which led the global revolt against neoliberalism. Building on anti-colonial legacies, this cycle of struggle started with protests against structural adjustment measures in the 1980s, especially in Africa and Latin America, and further cohered with the Zapatistas’ emergence onto the world stage in the mid-1990s.

In addition, much of our political framework in Seattle – from affinity groups to direct action – grew out of previous movement experiences. These include the labor radicalism of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), revolutionary pacifist efforts, grassroots direct action initiatives in the Black freedom movement, various strands of feminist organizing, the queer radicalism of ACT UP and the Lesbian Avengers, and the forest defense activism of Earth First!.

The second myth is that the Seattle actions were largely spontaneous. “This myth,” writes former DAN organizer David Solnit, “overlooks the massive amounts of grassroots organizing, mobilizing, networking, education, alliance building, media work, and the creation of a unifying strategic framework.”

The vision for mass direct action in Seattle developed through an informal west coast activist network, primarily involving anti-war activists, anarchists, direct-action environmentalists, international solidarity groups, and anti-prison activists. We formalized as DAN in the summer of 1999. Through months of meetings, debates, and work, DAN generated an action strategy, built relationships with other organizations, and mobilized on an ambitious scale.

DAN developed and distributed more than 50,000 copies of a broadsheet with information about the WTO and detailed instructions for participating in the direct action. DAN also organized a roadshow that toured along the West Coast, offering performances and action trainings. DAN members regularly facilitated popular education workshops and spoke at events throughout the region. And just before the WTO meetings began, DAN ran a nine-day “convergence” in Seattle, where we offered orientation, trainings, meals, and space for protest preparation.

Not everyone – and probably not even a majority – of those who protested in Seattle came through DAN. But we trained thousands of people and reached tens of thousands more. Our efforts created an infrastructure for what unfolded in the streets.

The third myth is that what we did in Seattle was magical, even flawless. In reality, we made many mistakes. As former DAN organizer Stephanie Guilloud notes, “We were not building a long-term resistance movement: we were mobilizing for a protest.” As we urgently mobilized, many of us overlooked the political implications of the fact that we were predominantly white.

Privilege framed white organizers’ experiences in many ways. We mostly stayed within our limited activist networks and social scenes. Many of us didn’t think about the different meanings and risks of direct action tactics for communities that face police repression every day. And for the most part, we were only beginning to understand the interconnections among colonialism, capitalism, ableism, hetero-patriarchy, white supremacy, and other systems of domination.

The people most affected by what we protested in Seattle were not majority white, and significant numbers of Black people, Indigenous people, and people of color did participate in the protests. Those of us who were white should have worked more intentionally in solidarity with their efforts.

While mobilizing, we also didn’t consider how to lay the foundations for a resilient movement. As a result, we didn’t grapple with crucial questions: How should we be consciously connecting movement efforts to ongoing community-based struggles? And how should we, in Guilloud’s words, “challenge the dynamics of privilege and oppression while also building large, wide, and deep movements that are led by and rooted in the experiences of people who know injustice and exploitation – currently and historically”? These questions continue to be some of the most pressing for movements in North America.

Seattle 1999 was a tremendous victory. Let’s celebrate it and learn from what actually happened, including the mistakes.

5 common assignment selling mistakes (and how to fix them)

 Cache   

Imagine this: You’re a salesperson getting ready for a call with a prospect. You’re anticipating any and all possible questions that might arise, ready to provide answers, case studies, details, and expertise that can assuage any buyer concerns that come up.

Then, in the call itself, just when you’re preparing to answer those same old questions from pretty much every sales call you make, something magical happens…

There are no questions. The prospect already knows the answers. Every one.

Somehow, this prospect already has all the information they need. Somehow, the trust you’re looking to establish is already there. The prospect is eager to move forward into the next stages of the sale. 

This is assignment selling in action.

The wisdom of assignment selling

As coined by Marcus Sheridan in They Ask, You Answer, “assignment selling” is the process of using website and other digital content to educate prospects and address many of the questions that typically consume sales calls.

Before a sales call, a sales rep “assigns” several pieces of content to the prospect, asking them to read or view each piece before the call takes place. In turn, if the prospect completes the assignments, it’s a signal to the rep that they’re ready for and committed to the next stage of the sales process.

For Marcus, this switch in tactics yielded huge gains in his closing rate. As he details in his book, prior to developing and perfecting assignment selling at River Pools, he and his sales team operated with a close rate of about 30 percent. 

However, after implementing assignment selling, his close rate more than doubled to 79%. 

Now, what’s important to note is that Marcus wasn’t suddenly selling way more pools. While the number of sales certainly increased, the biggest change was that more of his sales meetings were with much more educated, and therefore qualified, prospects.

Assignment selling benefits

There are important ways that assignment selling can benefit your sales process immediately:

Prospects self-educate

First, as mentioned, the most common and repetitive buyer questions can and should be answered for prospects by content on the company website. There, they can educate themselves on-demand and at their own pace, not having to worry about missing a detail during a call. Think of the experience as a walk-through of their future home without a real estate agent (sales rep) following them around, room-to-room. 

The added benefit here is that a sales process designed around educating and teaching is a source of differentiation, and by default, puts the company ahead of the competition without doing anything else.

Matthew Dixon and Brent Adamson present this concept in their book, The Challenger Sale, as “commercial teaching” — an essential part of building trust quickly with a prospect and creating separation between their experience with you and their experience with competitors.  

Ultimately, when prospects are more educated in the sales process, sales conversations are shortened and more focused on the elements that close business. More sales opportunities are won — and won faster. 

Better qualify leads = better use of sales reps’ time

Second, assignment selling helps to qualify leads beyond the standard inputs you’ll get from a prospect after they fill out a form on your website. Assignment selling qualifies a buyer’s level of commitment for going through with the purchase.

A committed buyer understands expectations around budget, timing, how things work, and the different options they have. Those are the prospects sales reps should be spending their time with.

Testing a prospect’s commitment, of course, comes from requiring them to consume specific content before or after calls. Whether they do or don’t is a clear trigger for reps on who to spend their time with.

It might seem counterintuitive, but should a prospect not complete their homework prior to a call, assignment selling empowers that rep to say, “We’re not yet ready to have this call,” and redirect their precious hours toward more committed prospects.

While this might seem discourteous, it’s actually of benefit to the prospect as well. After all, only the most educated buyer can make the best decisions for themselves or their organization. 

Shared Doctrine

Third, when sales reps begin to use your brand’s content, the process becomes more standardized across the team. Sales are approached with the same voice, language, and messaging. From the prospect’s side of things, it means they’ll have a consistent experience with your organization. From the company’s perspective, it means that the value of your product or service will never be missed or misconstrued through your reps.

Marcus calls this a “shared doctrine.”

Overall, assignment selling can be a sales reps’ greatest tool, but it’s all in how it’s used. 

Just like anything else, assignment selling can be done wrong, turning a process designed to facilitate sales into a stumbling block.

Troubleshooting assignment selling 

If you’ve adopted assignment selling and you’re finding that a prospect is hesitant to consume the content your sales team assigns, you can draw one of two conclusions. 

Not ready to buy

First off, it simply might indicate that the prospect is not ready to buy. In other words, they’re likely still in the awareness stage of the buying journey.

This doesn’t mean, however, that your efforts have been wasted. Simply from assigning content for your prospects to consume, you have positioned your company to be top-of-mind when they are ready to make a decision. Perhaps you could start a nurturing campaign. 

Moving a buyer from awareness to consideration to decision (or “zero moment of truth”) requires a great deal of education. Being seen as a teacher will help you stand out from your competitors.

Content quality and relevance

Second, perhaps the issue is in the content you’ve created. Do the materials that you’ve assigned address the main concerns or questions every single buyer has before making any purchasing decision?

Think about the things you must know before buying something. They will always center around the following:

How much does the thing cost? What could go wrong with it? How does it compare to the other things I'm looking at? If a certain company is not the best fit, who might be? and What are the best options? 

We call these the Big 5 and this is the foundation for all sales content.

Simply stated — if you’re not addressing these topics directly in your content, it will not be useful in assignment selling

Consider also that there could be a mismatch between where the buyer is in their journey and the content you're asking them to absorb.

One of my clients told me that a sales rep of theirs reflected, "I'd just rather have the conversation with the person than trust a document or video." In other words, the content didn't really address the needs of the buyer in a way that the salesperson could use. 

In order for assignment selling to work, the sales team has to trust the content

Other common mistakes with assignment selling
  • Moving forward even if the prospect blatantly disregarded the assignments. In nearly all cases, we ask our prospects to read Marcus Sheridan’s They Ask, You Answer, which heavily informs our business model. If a client hasn’t taken the time to become familiar with They Ask, You Answer, we instruct our sales reps to assess the overall situation before moving forward with the prospect. We’ve learned in the past that when clients don’t educate themselves on our philosophy, it becomes a much longer and more difficult sales process for both sides.
  • Basing your assignment selling on content that is solely text-based. It’s no wonder that Cisco is saying that by 2022, 82% of all content consumed online will be video-based. Humans are visual creatures, and we want to “get it all and get it fast.” Video often proves to be the most useful tool in educating quickly and thoroughly. 
  • Assigning too much content — or content that is not specific enough. Imagine receiving an email with 15 different links, along with a request to read it all before the next call. Or, perhaps a link to a page without guidance about its relevance. Often times, when someone is presented with too many options, no option (or the wrong option) is selected.

At IMPACT, we make sure that any assigned content is highly relevant and absolutely necessary to have a productive conversation.

Vetting the process

So, how can a company self-evaluate and “audit” its assignment selling process?

Start by interviewing your sales reps. Ask them the following two questions:

  • "What are the questions prospects ask you in almost every sales conversation?"
  • "What things do you wish you didn't have to explain or re-explain to prospects while on a call?"

Each of your sales reps should have no problem drumming up dozens of questions since they've been peppered with them for months and years.

Interestingly enough, you'll find that the vast majority of those questions will align with the Big 5 content topics.

With these questions documented, you've now not only created your content editorial calendar for the next couple of months, you've also put into motion the production of content that every sales team member will actually use and potential buyers will crave.

Once that content has been put to use by sales, it's important to seek frequent feedback.

Are prospects showing up to calls more prepared?

Are conversations more focused on action and next steps as opposed to education?

Is this content proving to close deals faster?

What are prospects asking you that we still haven't addressed? (remember: content production is a continuous process)

This is the way sales and marketing teams create alignment.

As you gather this information, iterate on the process. Update content, produce relevant video resources, document close rate and content consumption, and encourage sales and marketing alignment.

The right path forward

If your sales reps' time is being exhausted repeating the same information to multiple prospects, or worse, speaking with prospects who aren't yet ready to commit to the buying process, you're leaving money on the table.

Your website and digital content is the best sales tool your reps will ever have. Delivering that content to prospects in the form of assignment selling allows your sales teams to spend their time in the right places — closing deals, not "working" deals.

Assignment selling is the key to better qualifying a prospect's commitment to the sales process, creating differentiation through education, shortening the sales cycle, and giving valuable time back to your sales reps, all resulting in dramatically improved close rates.

Build a Dynamic DNS Client with Rackspace API

 Cache   

This time I’ve want to create a homemade Server with my Raspberry Pi2 and publish it using my own sub-domain, the main problem is that the ISP provide me an dynamic IP and we should ensure that if my IP address change the sub-domain record should point to the new IP.

The instructions assume that you:

  • Have a domain

  • Have already changed your NS records to point to dns1.stabletransit.com and dns2.stabletransit.com.

  1. You should download the latest version of rsdns from github

    cd ~/bin/
    git clone https://github.com/linickx/rsdns.git
    
  2. Go to your Rackspace portal (https://mycloud.rackspace.com/) and grab your Username & API key (It’s under “Your Account” -> “Account Settings” -> “API Key”)

  3. Create a configuration file for rsdns (~/.rsdns_config) with your settings.

    #!/bin/bash
    RSUSER=lcacho
    RSAPIKEY=1234567890
    RSPATH=~/bin/rsdns/
    
  4. You need your domain created on Rackspace(It’s under “Networking” -> “Cloud DNS” -> “Create Domain”) if you don’t have your domain created you are able to created using rsdns:

    ./rsdns-domain.sh -d www.luiscachog.io -e lcacho@luisachog.io
    
  5. Once you have a domain setup you need to create an A record. To create the A record you going to need an IP address, you can use http://icanhazip.com to get your actual current IP. Again to create a record you are able to do it from Rackspace panel (It’s under “Networking” -> “Cloud DNS” -> YOUR_DOMAIN -> “Add Record”) or you can use rsdns:

    ./rsdns-a.sh -n dynamic-host.luiscachog.io -i 123.123.123.123 -t 3600
    

In the above the TTL is set to 1hr (3600 secs), this is so that DNS caches do not keep the record too long. That’s all the pre-work done, now lets get your dynamic host setup!

  1. The script to update your a record is rsdns-dc.sh, and you run it like this:

    ./rsdns-dc.sh -n dynamic-host.luiscachog.io
    

The script uses icanhazip to get your current IP, it then update the A record with it.

I never switch off my router so I have create a created a cronjob to run that script every 2 hours, plus the 1hr TTL should mean that the record is roughly in sync with my IP without making unnecessary requests

7.- I use CentOS, so I can simply drop the following file called rsdns-dc into /etc/cron.d/ with this…

vim /etc/cron.d/rsdns-dc
* */2 * * * lcacho /home/lcacho/bin/rsdns/rsdns-dc.sh -n dynamic-host.luiscachog.io &>/dev/null

Now we are done! Private Dynamic DNS on your own zone using the Rackspace API.

The Wi-Fi 6 Syllabus: 3 Core Concepts for Campus Use Cases

The Wi-Fi 6 Syllabus: 3 Core Concepts for Campus Use Cases shailaja.neela… Tue, 11/26/2019 - 12:22

Wi-Fi 6 is gaining digital ground. In September, this sixth-generation wireless standard was certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance. Also known as High Efficiency Wireless (HEW) or 802.11ax, the next iteration of Wi-Fi promises faster speeds, simultaneous connections and reduced device battery usage.

With 77 percent of postsecondary campuses now adopting Internet of Things technologies to improve access and enhance student engagement, smart campus Wi-Fi solutions are critical to deliver on performance promises and meet evolving expectations.

But simply ripping and replacing current network devices with Wi-Fi 6 solutions won’t earn top marks for ROI. As noted by CBR Online, while 85 percent of organizations already use IoT solutions and are looking to implement wireless tech trends, they often struggle to connect IT rollouts with measurable returns.

The answer? To effectively leverage the future of wireless technology, start with a Wi-Fi 6 syllabus that covers three key concepts for campus use cases: design, infrastructure and implementation.

MORE FROM EDTECH: 5G and Wi-Fi 6: What’s the difference, and where do they belong on campus?

Apply Design Thinking to Wi-Fi 6 High-Capacity Access Points

As noted by Cisco Distinguished Systems Engineer Rob Barton, Wi-Fi 6 uses “fundamentally the same mechanism” as previous generations (802.11a, b, g and ac), making it backward-compatible and interchangeable with existing technology. 

What sets Wi-Fi 6 apart is a shift away from competition-based algorithms that permit only serial connections — 802.11ax solves the problem “by letting multiple users transmit at the same time on different resource units.” This allows up to 4,000 simultaneous client connections, reducing the strain on networks now tasked with handling 60,000 to 70,000 devices, on average.

Here, design thinking is critical to maximize campus impact. While it’s possible to simply duplicate existing Wi-Fi networks using sixth-generation infrastructure, this ignores the ability of 802.11ax to increase total device volume. By deploying next-generation access points at scale, campus IT teams can both improve connection stability for IoT devices and diversify the type of devices present. 

Using what’s known as targeted wake time (TWT), even battery-powered devices such as parking lot sensors or wireless security cameras can be connected to new Wi-Fi 6 networks and powered on only at specific intervals to deliver key data — then returned to dormancy until their next scheduled wake.

Account for Infrastructure Needs in Wi-Fi 6 Deployments

Barton puts it simply: When it comes to bandwidth on campuses, there’s never enough. 

This will be even more critical as the number of connected devices continues to rise. While campuses such as Seneca College have already started their Wi-Fi 6 transition — just months after the new standard’s certification — connecting modernized admin buildings, residence halls and advanced research facilities means accounting for the sheer number of mobile devices, already-placed sensors and cloud-connected technologies populating new Wi-Fi networks.

As a result, colleges need a twofold approach to infrastructure assessment:

  • Find the right fit: As Network Computing points out, with Wi-Fi 6 still in the early adopter stage, not all APs and routers are created equal. IT staff will be well served by evaluating industry leaders to find the best-fit backbone for new Wi-Fi and IoT deployments.
  • Build out bandwidth: Last-mile connections are always the weakest link in network infrastructure. If current ISP bandwidth can’t meet increased throughput demand from always-connected IoT devices, new Wi-Fi 6 solutions won’t deliver on their potential. Before large-scale adoption starts, make sure campus connections are up to the challenge.

Assess Implementation Strategies for Wi-Fi 6 Networks

Wi-Fi 6 implementation doesn’t happen in isolation. According to PC Magazine, while new Wi-Fi standards will transform current wireless networks, the cellular equivalent (5G) also plays a critical role in deploying IoT at scale. 

Consider security: While Barton notes that WPA3 protection offered by Wi-Fi 6 networks outpaces that of 5G for identity and access management, campuses need comprehensive solutions that permit seamless connection transfer between Wi-Fi and cellular networks as students move on and off campus but require the same level of secure access. Here, both dedicated identity access management tools and basic protections, such as two-factor authentication, can help bridge the security gap.

Barton also points to an increasing mismatch across data volumes and processing potential. With smart devices generating more data, more quickly, as campuses ramp up the number of simultaneous connections, distance from application to information becomes a critical concern. 

Cloud architects will play a critical role in effective implementation as more campuses adopt cloud technologies and edge computing becomes the de facto standard, says Barton. In this environment, widely distributed Wi-Fi 6 APs will reduce the time required for apps to communicate with cloud resources and return critical results.

Wi-Fi 6’s newly minted official status means there’s no need to rush campus deployment, especially if IT teams lack strong links between next-generation networking standards and measurable smart device ROI. The best bet is to follow the syllabus. Start with design thinking: How do Wi-Fi 6 advantages align with current and future campus objectives? Next, shore up infrastructure to meet new AP bandwidth demands. 

Finally, consider the implementation overlap between 5G, IoT and Wi-Fi 6 solutions.

5G and Wi-Fi 6: What’s the Difference, and Where Do They Belong on Campus?

5G and Wi-Fi 6: What’s the Difference, and Where Do They Belong on Campus? shailaja.neela… Fri, 11/22/2019 - 10:48

Student device usage is on the rise: As noted by recent EDUCAUSE research, 95 percent of postsecondary students have smartphones and 91 percent own laptops. The result is growing demand for anytime, anywhere access that supports peer-to-peer collaboration, project coordination and student-to-staff communication. To meet evolving expectations, colleges are embracing enhanced connection deployments, including smart campus Wi-Fi and cellular frameworks such as 5G.

Now, there’s a new wireless tech trend on the horizon: Wi-Fi 6. According to Dave Chen, senior product marketing manager for Aruba, an HPE company, Wi-Fi 6 “brings much faster speeds and delivers the latest in security for mobile users, Internet of Things devices and latency-sensitive applications, even in crowded areas.”

But what exactly is Wi-Fi 6? How does it compare to 5G, where does it make sense to deploy each of these solutions on campus and what’s the timeline for adoption? Here’s what you need to know.

MORE FROM EDTECH: With 5G Networks, Your Campus Meetings Might Become Virtual

5G Networks Will Provide Better Signaling for Mobile Campus Users

5G has been just over the digital horizon for years. This fifth generation of cellular connection offers enhancements to both speed and simultaneity: more devices connected at the same time, with improved download and upload speeds.

To meet user demand, most campus cellular networks now leverage 4G or LTE (Long Term Evolution) infrastructure. With enhanced radio technologies and larger frequency bands than current solutions, 5G delivers benefits such as: 

• Decreased latency: Using orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM), 5G networks offer the potential for 1-millisecond latency, which is 10 times as fast as 4G.

• Increased capacity: As noted by Digital Trends, 5G should deliver 100 times the traffic capacity of current networks by replacing large connective “masts” at a distance with small cells densely packed at scale.

• Improved signaling: Greater connection density paves the way for more efficient signaling and reliable connections.

True mobility is the greatest strength of emerging 5G networks: reliable, authenticated connections at scale that travel with users as they move. 

The caveat? Don’t expect full 5G deployments from popular cellular providers or on-campus networks just yet. As noted by Cisco, rollouts across select cities are likely to happen late this year or in early 2020, with most smartphone makers on track to deploy 5G support for new devices sometime next year.

Wi-Fi 6 Promises Top Performance for Smart Campus Technologies

What about Wi-Fi 6? This networking standard is on a speedier adoption track than 5G, but largely under the radar. Multiple device manufacturers now offer Wi-Fi 6-enabled access points, but it’s not generating the same hype as 5G. 

What’s the difference, and why does it matter?

Chen puts it simply: “Wi-Fi 6 is the next iteration of the Wi-Fi Alliance standard for wireless connectivity based on the 802.11ax protocol and is available now from a number of device manufacturers like Apple and Samsung, as well as enterprise networking vendors like Aruba.”

Right now, most campus networks rely on the fifth-generation Wi-Fi Alliance standard: 802.11ac. Wi-Fi 6 is backwards-compatible with this standard, but offers critical advantages, in large part because the newest iteration leverages essential cellular technologies — such as orthogonal frequency-division multiple access and multi-user, multiple input, multiple output — to deliver faster speeds and improved security across indoor and outdoor environments.

Key components of Wi-Fi 6 include:

• Multi-user, multiple input, multiple output (MU-MIMO): While MU-MIMO is already used by current wireless connections to allow four simultaneous router connections, Wi-Fi 6 doubles this capacity to eight.

• orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA): With OFDMA, multiple devices can receive data from a single transmission.

While Wi-Fi 6 can potentially boost transfer speeds to 9.6 gigabits per second — up from 3.5Gbps on fifth-generation Wi-Fi — speed isn’t the primary advantage. According to Chen, Wi-Fi 6 “has been designed and optimized for the unique wireless challenges that educational environments typically face — radio frequency interference from electronics, signal attenuation from concrete, metal and glass — and especially network congestion from other Wi-Fi clients on the network.”

In addition, Wi-Fi 6 can improve device battery life with targeted wake time (TWT); instead of being always on, devices wake at predetermined intervals and connect to the network.

While Wi-Fi 6 excels in close-quarter environments with high traffic and connection volumes, 5G facilitates connections on the move. 

But the two do share common ground. According to Chen, “Wi-Fi 6 is also an on-ramp to 5G services in enterprise or campus networks because it can be used like small cells and distributed antenna systems, as a radio access network for 5G.” 

New cellular technology, meanwhile, can be used as WAN uplinks for Wi-Fi services to enhance total coverage.

Wireless Tech Trends Point to an Expanded Internet of Things

So, where does it make sense to deploy Wi-Fi 6 on your campus?

Chen points to use cases such as leveraging Wi-Fi for Internet of Things applications. With the ability to connect more devices simultaneously and reduce interference in small spaces, Wi-Fi 6 is ideal for IoT devices on campus such as sensors and cameras. Paired with the TWT feature, even battery-operated devices can become part of campus IoT networks, as power drain drops off significantly. 

There’s also a future for 5G and IoT, especially as devices handle greater data volumes at speed. The small-cell nature of 5G deployments can shrink the distance between data and cloud-based compute resources to reduce total processing time. Wi-Fi 6 doesn’t rewrite the wireless playbook — instead, it updates current iterations with more device connections, reduced battery drain and improved security via WPA3 and the Enhanced Open standard.

While 5G remains a media mainstay as large-scale adoption looms over the next few years, Wi-Fi 6 upgrades are already possible, offering the potential for backwards-compatible communications that improve stability, enhance scalability and pave the way for dual-track campus connections.

A Quick Guide to Java on Netty

 Cache   

Netty is a non-blocking input/output (NIO) framework that makes it relatively simple to develop low-level network servers and clients. Netty provides an incredible amount of power for developers who need to work down on the socket level, for example when developing custom communication protocols between clients and servers. It supports SSL/TLS, has both blocking and non-blocking unified APIs, and a flexible threading model. It’s also fast and performant.

Netty’s asynchronous, non-blocking I/O model is designed for highly scalable architectures and may allow for higher throughput than an analogous blocking model. Basically, a non-blocking server runs all requests asynchronously on a single thread (no function should “block” the event loop). This contrasts with a blocking server model, which typically runs each request on a separate thread. By never having to switch threads or create new threads as load increases, the non-blocking model allows for reduced overhead and quicker expansion as traffic increases.

All of this power, however, comes at the cost of complexity. Non-blocking code is typically harder to read,to test, and to maintain, although this has improved greatly as the asynchronous paradigm has matured. Since Netty works at the socket level, it also requires a deeper understanding of the nuts and bolts of things like thread loops, byte buffers, and memory management.

The Netty.io team has done an admirable job of making Netty easy to use for all its power, but it’s still necessarily more complicated than higher-level libraries (such as Spring Boot WebFlux). So why use it?

Netty is designed to make the implementation of custom network protocols relatively easy. HTTP is great, but its a general-purpose protocol, basically well-suited to most things. But if you’re consistently passing custom, structured data back and forth between servers and clients (large files, streaming media, real-time game data, etc…), you can do better. Netty allows you to write your own network protocol tailored to your specific requirements, optimizing the traffic flow for your specific situation, without the unnecessary overhead of something like HTTP or FTP.

However, even if you’re not going to write your own custom TCP protocol, you can still use the power of Netty. Spring WebFlux is Spring’s answer to non-blocking and reactive programming. It’s an alternative to the traditional (blocking) Spring MVC architecture. By default, the Spring Boot WebFlux Starter runs on an embedded Netty server. In this configuration, you can think of WebFlux as a reactive, non-blocking HTTP application layer built on top of Netty’s NIO socket goodness.

In this tutorial, you are going to create a basic “Hello world” application in Netty. Next, you’re going to create the same “Hello world” application in Spring Boot WebFlux. Finally, you’re going to add OAuth 2.0 login to the application using Okta as the OAuth 2.0 provider.

Install the Project Dependencies

This project has a few required tools to install before you get started.

Java 11: This project uses Java 11. You can install OpenJDK via the instructions found on the OpenJDK website or using SDKMAN.

HTTPie: This is a simple command-line utility for making HTTP requests that you’ll use to test the REST application. It’s also beloved by Okta developers. Install per the instructions on their website.

Okta Developer Account: You’ll use Okta as an OAuth/OIDC provider to add OAuth2 login authentication to the application. Sign up for a free Okta developer account, if you haven’t already.

You should also go ahead and clone this blog’s GitHub repository.

git clone https://github.com/oktadeveloper/okta-netty-webflux-example.git

The project contains three subdirectories, corresponding to the three sections of this tutorial:

  1. netty-hello-world: a very basic example of how to create a Netty server
  2. webflux-hello-world: how to create the same server in Spring WebFlux
  3. webflux-oauth2login: an example of how to add OAuth2 login to a Spring WebFlux application

Use Netty to Build an HTTP Server

HTTP servers are application-layer implementations of the HTTP protocol (OSI Layer 7), so relatively high up in the internet stack. If you’re developing a REST API, you’re developing on top of an API that provides this implementation for you. By contrast, Netty doesn’t necessarily structure communication, provide session management, or even offer security like TLS. This is great if you’re building a super low-level networking application; however, perhaps not the best choice if you’re building a REST service.

Fortunately, the Netty API also provides some helper classes and functions that will allow us to easily integrate a higher level protocol like HTTP. In this part of the tutorial, you’ll use those to make a simple HTTP server.

Open the netty-hello-world project in your favorite IDE or text editor.

First, take a look at the src/main/java/com/okta/netty/AppServer.java file. This class is the entry point for the application and sets up the Netty server.

package com.okta.netty;  

...

public class AppServer {  
  
    private static final int HTTP_PORT = 8080;  
  
    public void run() throws Exception {  
  
        // Create the multithreaded event loops for the server
        EventLoopGroup bossGroup = new NioEventLoopGroup();  
        EventLoopGroup workerGroup = new NioEventLoopGroup();  
  
        try {  
            // A helper class that simplifies server configuration           
            ServerBootstrap httpBootstrap = new ServerBootstrap();  
            
            // Configure the server
            httpBootstrap.group(bossGroup, workerGroup)  
                .channel(NioServerSocketChannel.class)  
                .childHandler(new ServerInitializer()) // <-- Our handler created here  
                .option(ChannelOption.SO_BACKLOG, 128)  
                .childOption(ChannelOption.SO_KEEPALIVE, true);  
  
            // Bind and start to accept incoming connections.  
            ChannelFuture httpChannel = httpBootstrap.bind(HTTP_PORT).sync(); 
            
            // Wait until server socket is closed
            httpChannel.channel().closeFuture().sync();  
        }  
        finally {  
            workerGroup.shutdownGracefully();  
            bossGroup.shutdownGracefully();  
        }  
    }  
  
    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {  
        new AppServer().run();  
    }  
      
}

The most important line is .childHandler(new ServerInitializer()), which creates ServerInitializer and ServerHandler and hooks into the Netty server.

Next look at src/main/java/com/okta/netty/ServerInitializer.java. This class configures the Netty channel that will handle our requests and connects it to the ServerHandler.

package com.okta.netty;  
  
...

public class ServerInitializer extends ChannelInitializer<Channel> {  
  
    @Override  
    protected void initChannel(Channel ch) {  
        ChannelPipeline pipeline = ch.pipeline();  
        pipeline.addLast(new HttpServerCodec());  
        pipeline.addLast(new HttpObjectAggregator(Integer.MAX_VALUE));  
        pipeline.addLast(new ServerHandler());  
    }  
      
}

Finally, there is src/main/java/com/okta/netty/ServerHandler.java. This is where the actual request is mapped and the response is generated.

package com.okta.netty; 
 
...
  
public class ServerHandler extends SimpleChannelInboundHandler<FullHttpRequest> {  
      
    @Override  
    protected void channelRead0(ChannelHandlerContext ctx, FullHttpRequest msg) {  
        ByteBuf content = Unpooled.copiedBuffer("Hello World!", CharsetUtil.UTF_8);  
        FullHttpResponse response = new DefaultFullHttpResponse(HttpVersion.HTTP_1_1, HttpResponseStatus.OK, content);  
        response.headers().set(HttpHeaderNames.CONTENT_TYPE, "text/html");  
        response.headers().set(HttpHeaderNames.CONTENT_LENGTH, content.readableBytes());  
        ctx.write(response);  
        ctx.flush();  
    }  
      
}

In this class, notice that you must convert the response string to a byte buffer. You actually generate an HTTP response and set some headers directly. This is the application layer of the internet (OSI Layer 7). When you call ctx.write(response), it sends the response as a byte stream over TCP. The Netty team has done a great job of hiding a ton of complexity from us, while staying at a low-level transport protocol.

Test Your Netty App

To test this Netty app, from the project root directory netty-hello-world, run:

./gradlew run

Once the application finished loading, from a separate shell, use HTTPie to perform a GET request:

$ http :8080

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
content-length: 12
content-type: text/html

Hello World!

That’s a simple HTTP server built in Netty. Next, you will climb the ladder of abstraction a rung and use Spring Boot and WebFlux to simplify things.

Say Hello to WebFlux on Netty

As I mentioned previously, WebFlux is a non-blocking alternative to Spring MVC. It supports reactive programming with its event-driven, asynchronous, and non-blocking approach to request handling. It also provides many functional APIs. Reactor, a reactive, server-side Java library developed in close collaboration with Spring provides the reactive streams aspect of WebFlux. However, you could also use other reactive streams libraries.

Recall that, by default, the Spring Boot WebFlux starter runs on a Netty server. You’ll notice how much complexity Spring Boot hides from you in the next example.

The Spring Boot WebFlux project is located in the webflux-hello-world sub-directory of the GitHub repository. It’s beguilingly simple.

Take a look at the ReactiveApplication class. It’s the bare-bones, standard Spring Boot application class. It simply leverages the public static void main() method and the @SpringBootApplication to start the whole Spring Boot application framework.

src/main/java/com/okta/webflux/app/ReactiveApplication.java

package com.okta.webflux.app;  
  
... 
  
@SpringBootApplication  
public class ReactiveApplication {  
  
   public static void main(String[] args) {  
      SpringApplication.run(ReactiveApplication.class, args);  
   }  
  
}

The ReactiveRouter is a simple router class that links HTML endpoints with handler methods. You can see that it uses dependency injection to pass the ReactiveHandler to the router bean, which defines a single endpoint for the / route.

src/main/java/com/okta/webflux/app/ReactiveRouter.java

package com.okta.webflux.app;  
  
...
  
@Configuration  
public class ReactiveRouter {  
  
    @Bean  
    public RouterFunction<ServerResponse> route(ReactiveHandler handler) {  
  
        return RouterFunctions  
            .route(RequestPredicates  
                .GET("/")  
                .and(RequestPredicates.accept(MediaType.TEXT_PLAIN)), handler::hello);  
    }  
}

The ReactiveHandler is similarly simple. It defines one handler function that returns plain text. The Mono<ServerResponse> return type is a special type for returning a stream of one element. Take a look at the Spring Docs on Understanding Reactive types to learn more about return types. If you’re used to Spring MVC, this will likely be one of the more unfamiliar aspects of WebFlux.

package com.okta.webflux.app;  
  
...
  
@Component  
public class ReactiveHandler {  
  
    public Mono<ServerResponse> hello() {  
        return ServerResponse  
            .ok()  
            .contentType(MediaType.TEXT_PLAIN)  
            .body(BodyInserters.fromObject("Hello world!"));  
    }  
      
}

Open a shell and navigate to the webflux-hello-world sub-directory of the project.

Run the project using: ./gradlew bootRun.

Open another shell to test the endpoint with http :8080.

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Length: 12
Content-Type: text/plain

Hello world!

See how much simpler Spring Boot was to use than Netty?

Create an OpenID Connect (OIDC) Application

Next, you will secure the application using OAuth 2.0 login. This might sound complicated, but don’t worry. Spring and Okta have conspired to make it pretty darn simple!

Okta is a SaaS (software-as-service) authentication and authorization provider. We provide free accounts to developers so you can develop OIDC apps without fuss. Head over to developer.okta.com and sign up for an account.

After you’ve verified your email, log in and perform the following steps (if it’s your first time to log in, you may need to click the yellow Admin button to get to the developer dashboard):

  • Go to Application > Add Application.
  • Select application type Web and click Next.
  • Give the app a name. I named mine “WebFlux OAuth”.
  • Under Login redirect URIs change the value to http://localhost:8080/login/oauth2/code/okta. The rest of the default values will work.
  • Click Done.

New Okta application screen shot

Take note of the Client ID and Client Secret at the bottom. You’ll need them in a moment.

Secure Your App with OAuth 2.0

Once you’ve created the OIDC application on Okta, you need to make a few updates in the project. If you want to skip ahead the finished project for this part of the tutorial can be found in the webflux-oauth2login sub-directory, but I’m going to show you how to modify the webflux-hello-world to add login.

First, add the Okta Spring Boot Starter to the Gradle build file. We’ve worked hard to make this as easy as possible, and the Okta Spring Boot Starter simplifies OAuth configuration. Take a look at the GitHub project for the starter for more info.

Add the following dependency to the dependency block of your build.gradle file:

dependencies {  
    ...
    implementation 'com.okta.spring:okta-spring-boot-starter:1.3.0'
}

Next, add the following properties to the src/main/resources/application.properties file. You need to replace the values in brackets with your own Okta domain and client ID.

You can find your Issuer URI by opening your Okta developer dashboard and going to API > Authorization Servers and looking in the table at the default server. The client ID and secret come from the OIDC application you created just a moment ago.

okta.oauth2.issuer={yourIssuerUri}
okta.oauth2.client-id={yourClientId}
okta.oauth2.client-secret={yourClientSecret}

Now run the application: ./gradlew bootRun.

Either log out of your Okta developer account or use an incognito window and navigate to (in a browser): http://localhost:8080.

You’ll be directed to log in using your Okta account.

Sign-in with Okta screen shot

Once you’ve logged in, you’ll be redirected back to the app. Yay - success!

Learn More About Netty, Spring Boot, and OAuth 2.0

In this tutorial you created a basic “Hello world” application using Netty. You saw how Netty is a super-powerful framework for creating TCP and UDP network protocols. You saw how it supports non-blocking IO, and how Spring WebFlux builds on top of Netty to provide a reactive, non-blocking HTTP application framework. You then built a “Hello world” application in WebFlux, after which you used Okta as an OAuth 2.0 / OIDC provider to add OAuth 2.0 login to the application.

You can see the completed code for this tutorial on GitHub at oktadeveloper/okta-netty-webflux-example.

In addition to WebFlux, some powerful networking frameworks are built on top of Netty. Apple recently open-sourced ServiceTalk, a reactive microservices client/server library that supports HTTP, HTTP/2, and gRPC. There’s also Armeria, an open-source asynchronous HTTP/2 RPC/REST client/server library built on top of Java 8, Netty, Thrift, and gRPC. Its primary goal is to help engineers build high-performance asynchronous microservices.

They’re one of the most erotic of all sex toys on the market. This toy is far from dangerous and with care can last for a lifetime. Glass sex toys are completely safe to use because they are made from medical grade borosilicate glass (which is a hard glass) that is non-toxic and will withstand an extreme variety of different temperatures as well as physical pressures without leading to damage to it.

What Makes Cup Sex Toys Different to Other individuals?
Other toy are made with materials that will deteriate with use in addition to time. Similarly to other sex toys [url=http://www.theravensteamshop.com/authentic-justin-tucker-jersey.html]Justin Tucker Youth Jersey[/url] , glass adult sex toys can be used for both anal and vaginal delights. As stated previously; unlike other sex toys, these toys are manufactured from toughened glass and can’t only be used in it’s simpliest form, but can also be warmed up using a microwave or hot running water or alternatively [url=http://www.theravensteamshop.com/authentic-trace-mcsorley-jersey.html]Trace McSorley Womens Jersey[/url] , cooled down using cold running water or even by being placed in your freezer. This dexterity allows an entirely different variety of feelings to be experienced by the person or users consequently potentially creating more pleasure than a regular type of dildo that does not have the facility to do this. Additionally, glass dildos are also non-porous so are entirely waterproof, which not only ensures that they can be cooled down as well as warmed up using water but also allows for these to be used in the shower [url=http://www.theravensteamshop.com/authentic-iman-marshall-jersey.html]Iman Marshall Womens Jersey[/url] , bath or even a Jacuzzi!

Are Glass Sex Toys Expensive?

To give an exact answer to this question, it all depends upon what you are trying to find in an adult toy. If a beginner chooses a glass toy for their first experience it is definitely a good choice due to the way the toy will work as stated above. These toys are hand crafted and in many cases very beautiful. When all else is considered this is not all that costly. You should take into consideration that not only are glass sex toys practically a piece of art using beautiful glass patterns but they are also intended to last a lifetime and may produce more than one sort of sexual sensation. They are hypo-allergenic and feel so smooth, even the versions with surface ridges and protrusions [url=http://www.theravensteamshop.com/authentic-ben-powers-jersey.html]Ben Powers Womens Jersey[/url] , that user’s often discuss how sexy they make them feel whilst using them. It is amazing that with a little lubricant the toy will be especially suitable if the point of insertion is tight. Your toy will slide right in and it feels so good. Glass dildos are so robust that they can be washed in the dishwasher and come come out unscathed!

HHLA aims to become a climate neutral company by 2040

 Cache   
Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) is increasing its efforts to protect the climate and conserve resources. The aim is to make the entire Group climate neutral by 2040. The already successfully implemented sustainability strategy will now be realised under the “Balanced Logistics” brand. HHLA thereby underscores its commitment to be both economically successful as well as socially and ecologically responsible.Angela Titzrath, Chairwoman of HHLA’s Executive Board: “The people of Hamburg can rely on HHLA. We are well aware of our responsibility to protect the climate and that is why we are implementing specific measures for efficient and more sustainable container handling and environmentally friendly transport chains. Regardless of the dynamic that the climate protection debate has taken on recently, HHLA has been making a significant effort to increase the energy efficiency of its processes, conserve resources and consistently reduce emissions for many years now. The self-imposed target to reduce CO2 emissions per handled container by at least 30 percent by 2020 was thus achieved ahead of time last year. We are now setting new targets. We’re working on halving our absolute CO2 emissions by 2030 compared to the figures from 2018. The aim is to make the entire HHLA Group climate neutral by 2040.”Balanced Logistics means shaping a comprehensive sustainability policyIn order to further clarify HHLA’s stance on this important social topic, the sustainability strategy will in future be implemented under the guiding principle of “Balanced Logistics” and the profile raised with a corresponding logo. “We understand ‘Balanced Logistics’ as finding a balance between economic success, good working conditions, social responsibility and environmental and climate protection,” explained Titzrath at a press conference in Hamburg today. She added that “Only as a successful and competitive company do we have the means and opportunities to sustainably invest in our employees and fulfil our social and environmental responsibilities.”HHLA believes that intelligent, sustainable solutions are an opportunity for new business models and raising added value. “Those who invest in innovative, climate-friendly technologies at an early stage achieve sustainable results faster, which is to the benefit of shareholders, customers, staff members and society”, said the Chairwoman of HHLA’s Executive Board. This means looking into new technologies without prejudice in order to tackle head-on the challenges that we will face in the future.CTA is the world’s first climate-neutral handling facilityOne area of action is the Container Terminal Altenwerder (CTA), which became the first handling facility for containers in the world to be certified climate neutral by TÜV Nord in 2019. The quayside facility located in Hamburg is one of the most technologically modern and efficient container terminals in the world and has been in continual advancement since it commenced operations in 2002. Operations at CTA are now primarily powered by green electricity. Terminal processes that still produce CO2 emissions today will be gradually electrified, or their transition to electrical power will be field-tested.HHLA compensates for CO2 emissions that are still being generated through emissions reduction certificates, thereby supporting environmentally friendly projects that are certified according to the highest gold standard of Voluntary Emission Reduction (VER) including wind farms in India, low-friction anti-fouling paint for ship hulls and reforestation of rainforests in Panama. CTA’s CO2 footprint will be reviewed again by TÜV Nord next year. It can be assumed that the need to compensate will decrease as the electrification of the terminal continues to progress.HHLA Pure: CO2-neutral transport chains from the port to the hinterlandThe measures HHLA is implementing do not stop at the quayside; in addition to further optimising its own facilities, networking with other logistics players also offers much potential. The company has developed HHLA Pure, a product that can ensure climate neutral transport chains from the port into the European hinterland, making an important contribution to lowering transport-related CO2 emissions. This product allows HHLA to combine the strength of Hamburg as the largest European rail port with the environmentally friendly rail transport offered by the intermodal company Metrans. The HHLA subsidiary uses energy efficient electric trains and lightweight flat wagons, which can transport more containers with the same train length.The forwarding company Jakob Weets and transport logistics company cargo-partner are both pilot customers for whom Metrans transports containers from the Port of Hamburg to Central and Eastern Europe. If, for instance, the handling and rail transport of a 20-foot container from CTA to Prague, roughly 700 km away, generates a CO2 footprint of approximately 80 kg per standard container (TEU) this certified value can be compensated for with HHLA Pure. This offer enables customers to make their container transport climate friendly and increases competitiveness at the same time. Following a successful pilot phase HHLA Pure will be brought onto the market in 2020.“We review not only the economic value and benefit for our customers of every process optimisation and every new technical development, but also the sustainability aspect,” commented Titzrath. “As the ‘gateway to the future’, HHLA considers innovation and technical excellence to be key to fulfilling our responsibilities and developing sustainable solutions.”

Earning Your Popularity Through Social Media: Can It Truly Drive Traffic to Your Website?

 Cache   
So social media can drive traffic to a website. It's not a big secret. However, not everyone who tries this method succeeds. There are certain techniques that get lost in the excitement of a first appearance in a social media site. And therein lies the problem. With hope, strategy can get pushed in the sidelines. To find out how social media can drive traffic to a website, it's important that the nature of these sites are understood.

What are social media and how do they work?

Social media, by definition, encompasses a wide range of activities. In general, though, these are forms of communication and promotion that uses means of connection and display using different types of social groups. In the internet, these groups can include message boards, forums, blogs, video, audio, podcasts, images and wikis.

Social media can appear as blogs, e-mails, instant messaging, VoIP, vlogs and other sharing functions. They can be used for a variety of functions, such as for reference, image sharing, virtual reality, social networking and file sharing. Some examples of social media sites are Google, MySpace, Digg, Del.icio.us, Wikipedia, YouTube, Flickr and Second Life.

As you can see, social media varies and while their purposes may seem similar, no two always have the same functions. Google, for example, may be used to look for and view videos but it is still not utilized in the same manner as YouTube.

So how do social media drive traffic to a website?

There are several ways social media can drive traffic to a website. These include:

Exposure

A website that makes an appearance in social media is not guaranteed instant popularity but it has the potential to grab attention and drive traffic its way. Let's say a website selling photographic images submits one of its images to a social media site like Flickr.

Provided the image is tagged using targeted and relevant keywords and offer enough quality, it can find its own audience there. If the website owner provided a backlink to the website where the image is sourced, viewers will find their way there through the image. Using just a few strategically placed text or button links, a simple image can drive traffic to a website by getting viewed from a social media site.

Popularity

Social media are known for making superstars of websites and the personalities behind them. Just review the kind of hype people who appeared in videos through YouTube have received. By giving a website a boost and a chance to shine, social media can be used to effectively drive traffic to this site. As more people get to view it, vote for it and recommend it, a website can begin enjoying a surge in popularity. It shouldn?t be long until it starts enjoying a good number of hits.

Relevance

Another way social media can drive traffic to a website is by allowing it to appear due to relevance. Google, for example, lists websites and web pages depending on their relevance. A simple keyword search may produce numerous entries (some even reaching the millions mark), depending on the subject. Since web pages are displayed according to their importance, all a website owner has to do is to ensure that their page appears on the first page of the results list.

A semblance of reliability and respectability

Social media can be quite finicky but it can also be exclusive and protective. People will often gang up on a web page or website that doesn?t deliver on its promise. Conversely, they will also tirelessly promote a website that they like, without even getting paid for it.

Once a website receives the approval from members of a social media, it would have earned respect. Since the site will be viewed as trustworthy and dependable, it's only a matter of time before this results to a good amount of traffic, majority of whom will be a targeted audience.
