          Help. Eerste wetsuit.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Hallo sporters,

Op 26 augustus in Emmeloord ga ik mijn eerste 1/8 triathlon doen. In juni heb ik al een 1/16 triathlon gedaan en daar was ik geen wetsuit bij nodig. Ik acht de kans nu groter dat ik er 1 nodig ben, en in de toekomst ook. Nu heb ik een paar wetsuits gevonden die qua maat aardig in de buurt zouden moeten komen, maar ik zou graag wat tips/hulp van mensen met meer ervaring krijgen.

Even een paar dingen over mezelf. Waardeloze zwemmer, ga in september beginnen met een borstcrawlcursus. Mijn lengte is 174 cm, borstomtrek ~96 cm en ik weeg momenteel 76 kg (klein buikje). Ik ben dit jaar al bijna 10 kg afgevallen en de bedoeling is dat het volgend jaar ongeveer 68/70 kg moet zijn (voorlopig doel).

Ik heb deze pakken op het oog, wat zou het best bij mij passen qua maat en kwaliteit van het pak. De site van wiggle ken ik wel, die van proswimwear niet. Graag jullie mening.

Met vriendelijke groet,
Patrick

PS: Kan maar 1 link in de post plaatsen. Dus van de Wiggle site heb ik de links er niet staan.

          Announcing the public preview of Windows Container Support in Azure App Service      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Windows Server Containers in Web App are now available in public preview! Web App for Containers is catered towards developers who want to have more control over what is installed in their containers.

By supporting Windows Containers on Azure App Service, we enable new opportunities for Application Modernization:

  • Lift and Shift to PaaS – Ideal for customers interested in migrating .NET Framework and .NET Core applications to Azure, and going straight to a PaaS service to get the many productivity benefits from the App Service platform.
  • Applications with dependencies – Deploying an app within a Windows Container allows customers to install custom dependencies. Examples include installation of custom fonts or component libraries which must be installed into the Global Assembly Cache (GAC).
  • Relaxed security restrictions – When deploying a containerized application, the Windows Container is an isolation and security boundary. As a result, calls to libraries that would normally be blocked by Azure App Service will instead succeed when running inside of a Windows Container. For example, many PDF generation libraries make calls to graphics device interface (GDI) APIs. With Windows Containers, these calls will succeed.
  • Third-party application migration – Customers often have business critical applications developed by third parties with which the company no longer has a relationship. Containerizing these types of applications unlocks the opportunity to migrate applications to Azure App Service.

New SKUs for Windows Containers

With the introduction of Windows Container support, we are also adding three new premium SKUs exclusively for App Service Plans hosting applications deployed using Windows Containers. These new SKUs all provide Dv3 series capabilities, offering customers more choice for their applications. The new Premium Container Tier offers customers three options in which to run their containers:

  • Small (2 CPU vcores, 8GB Memory)
  • Medium (4 CPU vcores, 16GB Memory)
  • Large (8 CPU vcores, 32GB Memory)

Pricing tiers

To allow customers to explore and evaluate our offering for hosting Windows Containers on Azure App Service, we are initially offering a free preview for these new SKUs during the month of August. Preview pricing will take affect starting September 8, 2018.

Which base images are supported?

Windows Containers always derive from a base Windows image, and Windows Containers deployed on Azure App Service are no different. As a service, we cache several base images on our infrastructure and we advise customers to use those images as the base of their containers to enable faster application startup times. Customers are also free to use their own base images, though using different base images will lead to longer application startup times.

Customers deploying .NET Framework Applications must choose a base image based on the Windows Server Core 2016 Long Term Servicing Channel release. Customers deploying .NET Core Applications must choose a base image based on the Windows Server Nano 2016 Long Term Servicing Channel release. At this point, Azure App Service does not support deployment of applications in containers based on the Windows Server 1709 release.

Cached base images:

  • microsoft/iis:windowsservercore-ltsc2016, latest
  • microsoft/iis:nanoserver-sac2016
  • microsoft/aspnet:4.7.2-windowsservercore-ltsc2016, 4.7.2, latest
  • microsoft/dotnet:2.1-aspnetcore-runtime
  • microsoft/dotnet:2.1-sdk

    Public preview capabilities

    • Deploy containerized applications using Docker Hub, Azure Container Registry, or private registries.
    • Incrementally deploy apps into production with deployment slots and slot swaps.
    • Scale out automatically with auto-scale.
    • Enable application logs and use the App Service Log Streaming feature to see logs from your application.
    • Use PowerShell and Win-RM to remotely connect directly into your containers.

    To get started, please refer to this quick start.

    We want to hear from you!

    Windows Container support for Azure App Service provides you with even more ways to build, migrate, deploy, and scale enterprise grade web and API applications running on the Windows platform. We are planning to add even more capabilities during the public preview and we are very interested in your feedback as we move towards general availability.


              Linux on Azure App Service Environment now generally available      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Interested in deploying your Linux or containerized web app in an Azure Virtual Network? The Azure App Service team is excited to announce the general availability of Linux on Azure App Service Environment (ASE), which combines the features from App Service on Linux and App Service Environment. As announced at the time of the public preview release, Linux customers will be able to take advantage of deploying Linux and containerized apps in an App Service Environment, which is ideal for deploying applications into a VNet for secure network access or apps running at a high scale. 

    What can I do with Linux on ASE?

    With Linux on ASE, you can deploy your Linux web applications into an Azure virtual network (VNet) by bringing your own custom container, or just bring your code by using one of our built-in images.

    • If you want to bring your own custom Docker container, you can bring your image from DockerHub, Azure Container Registry, or your own private registry.
    • If you want to use one of our built-in images, we support many popular stacks, such as Node, PHP, Java, .NET Core, and more to come.

    Windows, Linux, and containerized web applications can be deployed into the same ASE, sharing the same VNet. Remember that even though Windows and Linux web apps can be in the same App Service Environment, Windows and Linux web apps must be in separate App Service plans. With Linux on ASE, you will be using the Isolated SKU with Dv2 VMs and additional scaling capabilities (up to 100 total App Service plan instances, between Windows and Linux, in one ASE).

    To decide which kind of ASE is the best for your use case, you should think about what kind of IP you want to use to expose the apps hosted in your ASE. Will it be public or private? Depending on whether or not you want an Internet accessible endpoint, there are two different kinds of ASEs that you can create:

    • An external ASE with an Internet accessible endpoint.
    • An internal ASE with a private IP address in the VNet with an internal load balancer (ILB).

    Our documentation page provide steps to get started, and more context about how to configure networking for your ASE.

    Pricing changes from preview

    Effective July 30, 2018, Linux and containerized apps deployed in an App Service Environment have returned to regular App Service on Linux and App Service Environment pricing. The 50 percent discount on the Linux App Service Plan from the public preview has been removed for general availability and is no longer being offered.

    New regions/countries added

    Since public preview, we have now expanded Linux on ASE to all App Service on Linux’s 20+ regions/countries:

    • Australia East
    • Australia Southeast
    • Brazil South
    • Canada Central
    • Canada East
    • Central India
    • Central US
    • East Asia
    • East US
    • East US 2
    • Japan East
    • Japan West
    • Korea Central
    • Korea South
    • North Central US
    • North Europe
    • South Central US
    • South India
    • Southeast Asia
    • UK South
    • UK West
    • West Central US
    • West Europe
    • West India
    • West US
    • West US 2

    How to get started

    You can create a Linux Web App into a new ASE by simply creating a new Web App and selecting Linux as the OS (built-in image), selecting Docker (custom container), or creating a new Web App for Containers (custom container).

    If you need more detailed instructions, get started with creating your first Linux/containerized Web App into an ASE by following these instructions.

    We’d love to hear what you think! Please leave your feedback on Linux on ASE using the Wed Apps forum.

              Announcing general availability of Azure SQL Database reserved capacity      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    We are excited to announce the general availability of Azure SQL Database reserved capacity, now available for single and elastic pool databases—expanding our commitment to making Azure the most cost-effective cloud for your workloads. This new pricing option enables you to save up to 33 percent1 compared to license-included pricing by pre-paying for your SQL database vCores for a one or three-year term.

    Azure is the most cost-effective cloud for SQL Server workloads

    Today, customers with active Software Assurance can save up to 55 percent using Azure Hybrid Benefit for SQL Server with the new vCore-based purchasing model in SQL Database. With support for reserved capacity on single databases and elastic pools, you can unlock even more savings when you combine your Azure Hybrid Benefit with reserved capacity pricing to achieve savings of up to 80 percent2

     

    Savings

     

    If you’re facing end of support for SQL Server 2008/2008 R2 on July 9, 2019, you can migrate your workloads to Azure SQL Database, a fully-managed service, and eliminate end of support transition costs. Azure Hybrid Benefit lets you use your existing licenses with active Software Assurance to save more on Azure, and now reserved capacity makes the move to Azure SQL Database even more cost-effective.

    Apply it to a single subscription or share across your enrollment

    SQL Database reserved capacity pricing is scoped to either a single subscription or shared. It allows you to control how many subscriptions can use the benefit and how the reservation is applied to specific subscriptions.

    A reservation scoped to a single subscription means that the reserved capacity discount will apply to SQL Database resources within the selected subscription. A reservation with a shared scope means that the billing benefit can be shared across any subscription in the enrollment (i.e., Enterprise Agreement customers) or account (i.e., Pay-as-you-go customers), except for MSDN subscriptions in the enrollment or non-Pay-as-you-go subscriptions in the account.

    Keep your savings when you need to make changes

    SQL Database reserved capacity provides vCore size flexibility so that you can scale up or down within a performance tier and region without impacting your reserved capacity pricing. For example, if you purchase 16 Gen5 vCores of reserved capacity for SQL Database general purpose and decide to deploy a 4 vCore database and an 8 vCore elastic pool, both with Gen 5 compute, your reserved capacity benefit will automatically apply to both. If you decide to scale up your database to 8 vCores, the reserved capacity benefit will also automatically apply.

    You also have the flexibility to temporarily move your hot databases between pools and single databases as part of your normal operations, within the same region and performance tier, without losing the reserved capacity benefit. By keeping an un-applied buffer in your reservation, you can effectively manage the performance spikes without exceeding your budget.

    SQL Database reserved capacity is initially available to single databases and elastic pools, with managed instance support coming in the future, and can be purchased through the Azure portal. For more information on reserved capacity pricing, please visit the SQL Database pricing page and review our documentation.

     


    SQL Database

     

    1 Savings based on eight vCore SQL Database managed instance general purpose in West2 US region, running 730 hours per month. Savings are calculated from on demand full price (license included) against 3-year reserved capacity license Included. Actual savings may vary based on region, instance size, and performance tier. Prices as of May 2018, subject to change.

    2 Savings based on eight vCore SQL Database managed instance business critical in West2 US region, running 730 hours per month. Savings are calculated from on demand full price (license included) against base rate with Azure Hybrid Benefit plus 3-year reserved capacity. Savings excludes Software Assurance cost for SQL Server Enterprise edition, which may vary based on EA agreement. Actual savings may vary based on region, instance size, and performance tier. Prices as of May 2018, subject to change.

    Αποτέλεσμα εικόνας για ousmane dembele
    To «μπαμ» της ύστατης στιγμής επιδιώκει η Άρσεναλ, η οποία φέρεται να μπήκε σε διαπραγματεύσεις με την Μπαρτσελόνα για την απόκτηση του Ουσμάν Ντεμπελέ.

    Σύμφωνα με βρετανικά δημοσιεύματα, οι «κανονιέρηδες» θέλουν να επωφεληθούν από την δυσαρέσκεια του 21χρονου Γάλλου φορ, ελέω της μεταγραφής του Μάλκομ στους «μπλαουγκράνα», και να τον κάνουν κάτοικο Λονδίνου.


    Τα δημοσιεύματα αναφέρουν ότι η πρόταση της Άρσεναλ προβλέπει αρχικά μονοετή δανεισμό του παίκτη έναντι 11 εκατομμυρίων ευρώ, ενώ το ερχόμενο καλοκαίρι θα καταβάλλει ακόμα 100 εκατομμύρια προκειμένου να τον αποκτήσει με κανονική μεταγραφή.

    Μάλιστα το σενάριο αυτό αποκτά ακόμα πιο ρεαλιστική διάσταση αν συνυπολογίσει κανείς μια φωτογραφία που ανέβασε ο Ομπαμεγιάνγκ στον προσωπικό του λογαριασμό στο Instagram, στην οποία ο Ντεμπελέ απεικονίζεται μαζί με τέσσερις παίκτες των «κανονιέρηδων».

    Σημειωτέον ότι η ρήτρα που υπάρχει στο συμβόλαιο του Ντεμπελέ ανέρχεται στα 400 εκατομμύρια ευρώ, ενώ η Μπαρτσελόνα τον απέκτησε μόλις το περασμένο καλοκαίρι από την Ντόρτμουντ έναντι 150 εκατομμυρίων ευρώ.

    • Microsoft's Azure Kubernetes Service mucked my cluster!

      Microsoft's Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) was launched to world+dog in June, however, a few disgruntled customers say the managed container confection isn't fully baked yet.

      In a blog post published on Monday, Prashant Deva, creator of an app and infrastructure monitoring service called DripStat, savaged AKS, calling it "an alpha service marked as GA [generally available] by Microsoft."

      Deva said he moved his company's production workload to AKS last month, and has been plagued by random DNS failures for domains outside of Azure and hostnames inside the Azure Virtual Network.

      He characterized the response from Microsoft support – advice not to use excessive memory and CPU resources – as ridiculous, and said Microsoft failed to respond when told the DNS issues occurred mainly during application startup when memory and CPU usage is minimal.

              Moving to Confluence Data Center      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Page edited by Michelle Mortimer - "Published by Scroll Versions from space DOCM and version 6.10"

    This page outlines the process for migrating an existing Confluence Server (non-clustered) site to Confluence Data Center (clustered).

    If you're installing Confluence for the first time (you don't have any existing Confluence data to migrate), see Installing Confluence Data Center

    If you're wanting to switch back to a non-clustered solution, see Moving from Data Center to Server.

    Your Confluence license determines the type of Confluence you have: Server or Data Center. Confluence will auto-detect the license type when you enter your license key, and automatically prompt you to begin the migration.

    Before you begin

    Clustering requirements

    To run Confluence in a cluster you must:

    • Have a Data Center license (you can purchase a Data Center license or create an evaluation license at my.atlassian.com)
    • Use a supported external database, operating system and Java version
    • Use a load balancer with session affinity and WebSockets support in front of the Confluence cluster
    • Have a shared directory accessible to all cluster nodes in the same path (this will be your shared home directory)
    • Use OAuth authentication if you have application links to other Atlassian products (such as Jira)

    Supported platforms

    See our Supported Platforms page for information on the database, Java, and operating systems you'll be able to use. These requirements are the same for Server and Data Center deployments. See Confluence Data Center Technical Overview for important hardware and infrastructure considerations.

    We also have specific guides and deployment templates to help you running Confluence Data Center in AWS or Azure. Check them out to find out what's required.

    Terminology

    In this guide we'll use the following terminology:

    • Installation directory – The directory where you installed Confluence on a node.
    • Local home directory – The home or data directory on each node (in non-clustered Confluence this is simply known as the home directory).
    • Shared home directory – The directory you created that is accessible to all nodes in the cluster via the same path. 
    • Synchrony home directory - The directory where you configure and run Synchrony from (this may be on a confluence node, or on its own node)

    At the end of the installation process, you'll have an installation and local home directory on each node, and a single shared home directory (a total of 5 directories in a two node cluster) for Confluence plus directories for Synchrony. 

    Set up Data Center

    1. Upgrade Confluence Server 

    If you plan to upgrade Confluence as part of your migration to Data Center, you should upgrade your existing Confluence Server site as the first step.  

    2. Apply Data Center license 

    1. Go to  > General Configuration > License Details
    2. Enter your new Confluence Data Center license key.
    3. You'll be prompted to stop Confluence to begin the migration.

     

    At this stage your home directory (configured in confluence\WEB-INF\classes\confluence-init.properties) should still be pointing to your existing (local) home directory.

    3. Create a shared home directory 

    1. Create a directory that's accessible to all cluster nodes via the same path. The directory should be empty. This will be your shared home directory. 
    2. In your existing Confluence home directory, move the contents of <confluence home>/shared-home to the new shared home directory you just created.

      To prevent confusion, we recommend deleting the empty <confluence home>/shared-home directory once you've moved its contents.
    3. Move your attachments directory to the new shared home directory (skip this step if you currently store attachments in the database). 

    4. Start Confluence

    The setup wizard will prompt you to complete the migration, by entering:

    • A name for your cluster
    • The path to the shared home directory you created earlier
    • The network interface Confluence will use to communicate between nodes
    • A multicast address (automatically generated or enter your own) or the IP addresses of each cluster node
    • How you want Confluence to discover cluster nodes:

      • Multicast - enter your own multicast address or automatically generate one.
      • TCP/IP - enter the IP address of each cluster node
      • AWS - enter your IAM Role or secret key, and region.
         

        AWS node discovery...

        We recommend using our Quick Start or Cloud Formation Template to deploy Confluence Data Center in AWS, as it will automatically provision, configure and connect everything you need.

        If you do decide to do your own custom deployment, you can provide the following information to allow Confluence to auto-discover cluster nodes:

        FieldDescription
        IAM Role or
        Secret Key
        This is your authentication method. You can choose to authenticate by IAM Role or Secret Key.
        RegionThis is the region your cluster nodes (EC2 instances) will be running in.
        Host headerOptional. This is the AWS endpoint for Confluence to use (the address where the EC2 API can be found, for example 'ec2.amazonaws.com'). Leave blank to use the default endpoint.
        Security group nameOptional. Use to narrow the members of your cluster to only resources in a particular security group (specified in the EC2 console).
        Tag key and Tag value

        Optional. Use to narrow the members of your cluster to only resources with particular tags (specified in the EC2 console).

    Once you've confirmed that Confluence is running, stop Confluence so you can set up Synchrony (required if you want to continue to use collaborative editing).  

    Set up Synchrony

    5. Set up a Synchrony cluster

    In this example, we assume you'll run Synchrony in its own cluster.
     

    1. Grab the <install-directory>/bin/synchrony directory from your first Confluence node and move it to your Synchrony node.  We'll call this your <synchrony-home> directory.
    2. Copy synchrony-standalone.jar from your Confluence local home directory to your <synchrony-home> directory. 
    3. Copy your database driver from your Confluence <install-directory>/confluence/web-inf/lib to your <synchrony-home> directory or other appropriate location on your Synchrony node.
    4. Edit the <synchrony-home>/start-synchrony.sh or start-synchrony.bat file and enter details for the parameters listed under Configure parameters.
      See Configuring Synchrony for Data Center for more information on the required parameters and some and optional properties that you can also choose to specify.
    5. Start Confluence then head to 
      http://<SERVER_IP>:<SYNCHRONY_PORT>/synchrony/heartbeat
      to check that Synchrony is available
    6. Copy your <synchrony-home> directory to each Synchrony node. As each node joins you'll see something like this in your console.

      Members [2] {
      	Member [172.22.52.12]:5701
      	Member [172.22.49.34]:5701 
      }
      
    7. Configure your load balancer for Synchrony.
      Your load balancer must support WebSockets (for example NGINX 1.3 or later, Apache httpd 2.4, IIS 8.0 or later). SSL connections must be terminated at your load balancer so that Synchrony can accept XHR requests from the web browser. 

    6. Start Confluence on Node 1

    In this example, we assume you use the same load balancer for Synchrony and Confluence, as shown in Configuring Synchrony for Data Center.

    1. Start Confluence on node 1 and pass the following system property to Confluence to tell Confluence where to find your Synchrony cluster.

      -Dsynchrony.service.url=http://<synchrony load balancer url>/synchrony/v1

      For example http://yoursite.example.com/synchrony/v1. You must include /v1 on the end of the URL.

      If Synchrony is set up as one node without a load balancer, use the following instead:

      -Dsynchrony.service.url=http://<synchrony ip or hostname>:<synchrony port>/synchrony/v1

      For example http://42.42.42.42:8091/synchrony/v1 or http://synchrony.example.com:8091/synchrony/v1

      You may want to add this system property to your <install-directory>/bin/setenv.sh or setenv.bat so it is automatically passed every time you start Confluence. See Configuring System Properties for more information on how to do this in your environment.

    2. Head to  > General Configuration > Collaborative editing to check that this Confluence node can connect to Synchrony. 

      Note: to test creating content you'll need to access Confluence via your load balancer.  You can't create or edit pages when accessing a node directly.

    Add more Confluence nodes

    7. Copy Confluence to second node

    To copy Confluence to the second node:

    1. Shut down Confluence on node 1
    2. Shut down your application server on node 2, or stop it automatically loading web applications
    3. Copy the installation directory from node 1 to node 2
    4. Copy the local home directory from node 1 to node 2
      If the file path of the local home directory is not the same on nodes 1 and 2 you'll need to update the <installation directory>/confluence/WEB-INF/classes/confluence-init.properties file on node 2 to point to the correct location.

    Copying the local home directory ensures the Confluence search index, the database and cluster configuration, and any other settings are copied to node 2.

    8. Configure load balancer

    Configure your load balancer for Confluence. You can use the load balancer of your choice, but it needs to support session affinity and WebSockets.

    SSL connections must be terminated at your load balancer so that Synchrony can accept XHR requests from the web browser.

    You can verify that your load balancer is sending requests correctly to your existing Confluence server by accessing Confluence through the load balancer and creating a page, then checking that this page can be viewed/edited by another machine through the load balancer.

    9. Start Confluence one node at a time

    You must only start Confluence one node at a time. The first node must be up and available before starting the next one.

    1. Start Confluence on node 1
    2. Wait for Confluence to become available on node 1
    3. Start Confluence on node 2
    4. Wait for Confluence to become available on node 2.

    The Cluster monitoring console ( > General Configuration > Clustering) shows information about the active cluster.

    When the cluster is running properly, this page displays the details of each node, including system usage and uptime. Use the menu to see more information about each node in the cluster.

    10. Test your Confluence cluster

    Remember, to test creating content you'll need to access Confluence via your load balancer.  You can't create or edit pages when accessing a node directly.

    A simple process to ensure your cluster is working correctly is:

    1. Access a node via your load balancer, and create a new document on this node
    2. Ensure the new document is visible by accessing it directly on a different node
    3. Search for the new document on the original node, and ensure it appears
    4. Search for the new document on another node, and ensure it appears

    If Confluence detects more than one instance accessing the database, but not in a working cluster, it will shut itself down in a cluster panic. This can be fixed by troubleshooting the network connectivity of the cluster.


    Security

    Ensure that only permitted cluster nodes are allowed to connect to a Confluence Data Center instance's Hazelcast port (which defaults to 5801) or Synchrony's Hazelcast port (which defaults to 5701) through the use of a firewall and / or network segregation.

    Troubleshooting

    If you have problems with the above procedure, please see our Cluster Troubleshooting guide.

    If you're testing Confluence Data Center by running the cluster on a single machine, please refer to our developer instructions on Starting a Confluence cluster on a single machine.

              Azure Tips and Tricks Part 147 - Run TSQL on an Azure SQL database with Azure Fu ...      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Intro

    Most folks aren’t aware of how powerful the Azure platform really is. As I’ve been presenting topics on Azure, I’ve had many people say, “How did you do that?” So I’ll be documenting my tips and tricks for Azure in these posts.

    The Complete List of Azure Tips and Tricks

    Available Now!

    Run TSQL on an Azure SQL database with Azure Functions

    I’ve recently been adding Azure SQL tips such as Easily reset the Administrator password for an Azure SQL database and Rename an Azure SQL database . and you all seem to like them. So I’m back with another SQL post that addresses another common scenario that folks ask “How do I run TSQL on an Azure SQL database with Azure Functions”?

    SQL Database

    Before we begin you’ll need to grab the connection string from the database you created earlier. Simply select SQL Databases and select your database on the SQL databases page.

    Click Show database connection strings and copy the string to your clipboard.


    Azure Tips and Tricks Part 147 - Run TSQL on an Azure SQL database with Azure Fu ...

    Go ahead and replace {your_username} and {your_password} placeholders with real values and save it somewhere easily accessible.

    Azure Functions

    Create a new Azure Function and select Timer Trigger. You typically want to store this secret in Platform features > Application settings in the Connection strings placeholder. So go ahead and do that as shown below:


    Azure Tips and Tricks Part 147 - Run TSQL on an Azure SQL database with Azure Fu ...

    Now use the following code

    #r "System.Configuration" #r "System.Data" using System.Configuration; using System.Data.SqlClient; using System.Threading.Tasks; public static async Task Run(TimerInfo myTimer, TraceWriter log) { var str = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["sqldb_connection"].ConnectionString; using (SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(str)) { conn.Open(); var text = "UPDATE MichaelTestDB.User " + "SET [Item] = 5 WHERE DateAdded < GetDate();"; using (SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(text, conn)) { var rows = await cmd.ExecuteNonQueryAsync(); } } }

    Nice! Now you can run any TSQL command and output the results to whatever you want such as SendGrid for email, Twilio for SMS, etc. Unlimited possibilities!

              Build a SPA with ASP.NET Core 2.1, Stripe, and Angular 6      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Buying things on the Internet has become a daily activity and is a feature many new projects require. In this tutorial, I will show you how to build an app to sell tickets using an Angular 6 single page app (SPA) using an ASP.NET Core 2.1 backend API. You’ll build both the Angular and ASP.NET Core applications and run them from within VS Code. Let’s get to it!

    Upgrade to Angular 6

    I love to use the latest and greatest when starting a new project. But when you use a project generator (like Angular-CLI, or the DotNetCLI), you may be at the mercy of the latest version the authors of those libraries have added. Right now, the DotNet CLI generates an Angular application with dotnet new angular gives you an Angular app at about version 4.5, which is about two versions behind the latest. Let me show you how to upgrade the templates and the generated application so that you’re using Angular 6, which is the latest as of the time of this article.

    Upgrade the Angular App Template

    Update the DotNet command line tools with:

    dotnet new --install Microsoft.DotNet.Web.Spa.ProjectTemplates::2.1.0
    

    Then run:

    dotnet new --install Microsoft.AspNetCore.SpaTemplates::2.1.0-preview1-final
    

    Generate the ASP.NET Angular App

    Now you can scaffold a new project:

    dotnet new angular -o ticket-sales-example
    

    Upgrade the Angular App To 6

    The closest that gets you is Angular v5.2.0. To update Angular to v6.0.9 (as of this writing) switch to the ClientApp directory and run:

    ng update --all
    

    This will update the package.json file; then you need to run:

    npm install
    

    If you get a message about @angular/cli you can update it by running:

    ng update @angular/cli
    

    You may now see some vulnerabilities in your NPM packages. To fix them run:

    npm audit fix
    

    You may have to run this several times as some of the fixes introduce new vulnerabilities. I was only able to get my vulnerability list down to 6. I still have one low and five moderate vulnerabilities. If you want to get to zero vulnerabilities, you would have to hunt them each down and fix them manually.

    Create a Stripe Account

    One of the easiest ways to take payments on the web is to use Stripe. You can create a free developer account on Stripe’s registration page.

    Once you’ve registered, make sure that you go to your dashboard and on the left-hand menu, click the toggle to ensure you are viewing test data. Then click on the Developers menu item and then click API Keys. Copy down the Publishable key to use in your Angular app.

    Add Stripe to Your Angular 6 App

    In your index.html file, add a script tag for Stripe’s JavaScript library, right below the app-root component.

    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://js.stripe.com/v2/" />
    

    Also add your publishable key to the Stripe object:

    <script type="text/javascript">
      Stripe.setPublishableKey('{yourPublishableKey}');
    </script>
    

    Make sure that your publishable key starts with pk_test_. If it doesn’t, you’re using the production key, and you don’t want to do that yet.

    Create the Stripe Ticket Registration Page

    You can easily scaffold the base registration component with the Angular CLI. Go to a command line and change directories into the src/app directory. Then run the command:

    ng generate component registration
    

    The shorthand for the CLI is:

    ng g c registration
    

    The generate command will generate a folder called registration, and inside that a registration.compomnent.css, registration.component.html, a registration.component.spec.ts, and a registration.component.ts file. These are all the basic files for an Angular 6 component. I won’t be covering testing in this tutorial, so you can ignore or delete the registration.component.spec.ts file.

    First, add some basic HTML to your registration.component.html file for displaying tickets. So the final file contents looks like this:

    <h1>Register for SuperDuperConf</h1>
    
    <div class="ticket conf-only">
      <span class="title">Conference Only Pass</span>
      <span class="price">$295</span>
      <button (click)="selectTicket('Conference Only', 295)">Register Now!</button>
    </div>
    
    <div class="ticket full">
      <span class="title">Full Conference + Workshop Pass</span>
      <span class="price">$395</span>
      <span class="value">Best Value!</span>
      <button (click)="selectTicket('Full Conference + Workshop', 395)">Register Now!</button>
    </div>
    
    <div class="ticket work-only">
      <span class="title">Workshop Only Pass</span>
      <span class="price">$195</span>
      <button (click)="selectTicket('Workshop Only', 195)">Register Now!</button>
    </div>
    
    <div class="alert alert-success" *ngIf="model.successMessage">{{successMessage}}</div>
    <div class="alert alert-danger" *ngIf="model.errorMessage">{{errorMessage}}</div>
    
    <div *ngIf="model.ticket.price">
    
      <form (submit)="purchaseTicket()" class="needs-validation" novalidate #regForm="ngForm">
        <div class="form-group">
          <label for="firstName">First Name:</label>
          <input type="text" class="form-control" name="firstName" id="firstName" [(ngModel)]="model.firstName" required #firstName="ngModel">
          <div [hidden]="firstName.valid || firstName.pristine" class="text-danger">First Name is required.</div>
        </div>
    
        <div class="form-group">
          <label for="lastName">Last Name:</label>
          <input type="text" class="form-control" name="lastName" id="lastName" [(ngModel)]="model.lastName" required #lastName="ngModel">
          <div [hidden]="lastName.valid || lastName.pristine" class="text-danger">Last Name is required.</div>
        </div>
    
        <div class="form-group">
          <label for="email">Email Address:</label>
          <input type="text" class="form-control" name="email" id="email" [(ngModel)]="model.emailAddress" required #email="ngModel">
          <div [hidden]="email.valid || email.pristine" class="text-danger">Email Address is required.</div>
        </div>
    
        <div class="form-group">
          <label for="password">Password:</label>
          <input type="password" class="form-control" name="password" id="password" [(ngModel)]="model.password" required #password="ngModel">
          <div [hidden]="password.valid || password.pristine" class="text-danger">Password is required.</div>
        </div>
    
        <div class="form-group">
          <label for="cardNumber">Card Number:</label>
          <input type="text" class="form-control" name="cardNumber" id="cardNumber" [(ngModel)]="model.card.number" required>
        </div>
    
        <div class="form-group form-inline">
          <label for="expiry">Expiry:</label>
          <br/>
          <input type="text" class="form-control mb-1 mr-sm-1" name="expiryMonth" id="expiryMonth" [(ngModel)]="model.card.exp_month"
            required> /
          <input type="text" class="form-control" name="expiryYear" id="expiryYear" [(ngModel)]="model.card.exp_year" required>
        </div>
    
        <div class="form-group">
          <label for="cvc">Security Code:</label>
          <input type="text" class="form-control" name="cvc" id="cvc" [(ngModel)]="model.card.cvc" required>
        </div>
        <button type="submit" class="btn btn-success" [disabled]="!regForm.form.valid">Pay ${{model.ticket.price / 100}}</button>
      </form>
    </div>
    

    I know it seems like a lot, but there is a lot of repetition here. The first section lists three tickets that a user can buy to register for the “SuperDuperConf”. The second section is just a form that collects the information needed to register an attendee for the conference.

    The important thing to take note of here is the [(ngModel)]="model.some.thing" lines of code. That weird sequence of characters around ngModel is just parentheses inside of square brackets. The parentheses tell Angular that there is an action associated with this field. You see this a lot for click event handlers. It usually looks something like (click)="someEventHandler()". It is the same, in that the ngModel is the handler of the event when the model changes.

    The square brackets are used for updating the DOM when something on the model changes. It is usually seen in something like disabling a button as you did above with [disabled]="!regForm.form.valid". It watches the value on the form, and when it is not valid, the button is disabled. Once the form values become valid, the disabled property is removed from the DOM element.

    Now that you have all the fields on the page, you will want to style that ticket section up a bit so that it looks like tickets.

    .ticket {
      text-align: center;
      display: inline-block;
      width: 31%;
      border-radius: 1rem;
      color: #fff;
      padding: 1rem;
      margin: 1rem;
    }
    
    .ticket.conf-only,
    .ticket.work-only {
      background-color: #333;
    }
    
    .ticket.full {
      background-color: #060;
    }
    
    .ticket span {
      display: block;
    }
    
    .ticket .title {
      font-size: 2rem;
    }
    
    .ticket .price {
      font-size: 2.5rem;
    }
    
    .ticket .value {
      font-style: italic;
    }
    
    .ticket button {
      border-radius: 0.5rem;
      text-align: center;
      font-weight: bold;
      color: #333;
      margin: 1rem;
    }
    

    These are just three basic ticket types I regularly see for conference registrations.

    Now the meat of the registration page, the TypeScript component. You will need a few things to make the page work. You will need a model to store the values that the user enters, a way for the user to select a ticket, and a way for the user to pay for the ticket they have selected.

    import { Component, ChangeDetectorRef, Inject } from '@angular/core';
    import { HttpClient } from '@angular/common/http';
    
    @Component({
      selector: 'app-registration',
      templateUrl: './registration.component.html',
      styleUrls: ['./registration.component.css']
    })
    export class RegistrationComponent {
      public model: any;
      public card: any;
    
      public errorMessage: string;
      public successMessage: string;
    
      constructor(
        private http: HttpClient,
        private changeDetector: ChangeDetectorRef,
        @Inject('BASE_URL') private baseUrl: string
      ) {
        this.resetModel();
        this.successMessage = this.errorMessage = null;
      }
    
      resetModel(): any {
        this.model = {
          firstName: '',
          lastName: '',
          emailAddress: '',
          password: '',
          token: '',
          ticket: { ticketType: '', price: 0 }
        };
        this.card = { number: '', exp_month: '', exp_year: '', cvc: '' };
      }
    
      selectTicket(ticketType: string, price: number) {
        this.model.ticket = { ticketType, price: price * 100 };
      }
    
      purchaseTicket() {
        (<any>window).Stripe.card.createToken(
          this.card,
          (status: number, response: any) => {
            if (status === 200) {
              this.model.token = response.id;
              this.http
                .post(this.baseUrl + 'api/registration', this.model)
                .subscribe(
                  result => {
                    this.resetModel();
                    this.successMessage = 'Thank you for purchasing a ticket!';
                    console.log(this.successMessage);
                    this.changeDetector.detectChanges();
                  },
                  error => {
                    this.errorMessage = 'There was a problem registering you.';
                    console.error(error);
                  }
                );
            } else {
              this.errorMessage = 'There was a problem purchasing the ticket.';
              console.error(response.error.message);
            }
          }
        );
      }
    }
    

    Even if you’re familiar with Angular, some of this may look foreign. For instance, the BASE_URL value that is getting injected into the component. It comes from the main.ts file that the Angular CLI generated. If you look at that file, right below the imports, there is a function called getBaseUrl() and below that is a providers section that provides the value from the getBaseUrl() function, which is just a simple way to inject constant values into components.

    The other thing that might look strange is the purchaseTicket() function. If you’ve never used Stripe before, the createToken() method creates a single-use token that you can pass to your server to use in your server-side calls, that way you don’t have to send credit card information to your server, and you can let Stripe handle the security of taking online payments!

    Add the ASP.NET Registration Controller

    Now that your Angular app can get a token from Stripe, you’ll want to send that token and the user’s information to the server to charge their card for the ticket. Create a controller in the Controllers folder in the server-side application root. The contents of the file should be:

    using System;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Threading.Tasks;
    using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Mvc;
    using Okta.Sdk;
    using Stripe;
    using ticket_sales_example.Models;
    
    namespace ticket_sales_example.Controllers
    {
      [Produces("application/json")]
      [Route("api/[controller]")]
      public class RegistrationController : ControllerBase
      {
        [HttpPost]
        public async Task<ActionResult<Registration>> CreateAsync([FromBody] Registration registration)
        {
          ChargeCard(registration);
          var oktaUser = await RegisterUserAsync(registration);
          registration.UserId = oktaUser.Id;
          return Ok(registration);
        }
    
        private async Task<User> RegisterUserAsync(Registration registration)
        {
          var client = new OktaClient();
          var user = await client.Users.CreateUserAsync(
            new CreateUserWithPasswordOptions
            {
              Profile = new UserProfile
              {
                FirstName = registration.FirstName,
                LastName = registration.LastName,
                Email = registration.EmailAddress,
                Login = registration.EmailAddress,
              },
              Password = registration.Password,
              Activate = true
            }
          );
    
          var groupName = "";
          if (registration.Ticket.TicketType == "Full Conference + Workshop")
          {
            groupName = "FullAttendees";
          }
          if (registration.Ticket.TicketType == "Conference Only")
          {
            groupName = "ConferenceOnlyAttendees";
          }
          if (registration.Ticket.TicketType == "Workshop Only")
          {
            groupName = "WorkshopOnlyAttendees";
          }
    
          var group = await client.Groups.FirstOrDefault(g => g.Profile.Name == groupName);
          if (group != null && user != null)
          {
            await client.Groups.AddUserToGroupAsync(group.Id, user.Id);
          }
    
    
    
          return user as User;
        }
    
        private StripeCharge ChargeCard(Registration registration)
        {
          StripeConfiguration.SetApiKey("sk_test_uukFqjqsYGxoHaRTOS6R7nFI");
    
          var options = new StripeChargeCreateOptions
          {
            Amount = registration.Ticket.Price,
            Currency = "usd",
            Description = registration.Ticket.TicketType,
            SourceTokenOrExistingSourceId = registration.Token,
            StatementDescriptor = "SuperDuperConf Ticket"
          };
    
          var service = new StripeChargeService();
          return service.Create(options);
        }
      }
    }
    

    It seems like there is a bit here, but there is only the HttpPost method CreateAsync() that is the API endpoint for a POST to /api/registration. The other methods are helpers to the endpoint.

    The ChargeCard() method does just as the name implies, it charges the user’s credit card using the token that the Angular app got from Stripe and sent to the API. Even though I am setting the Stripe API key with a simple string here for demonstration purposes, you might want to store the key in an environment variable, in a configuration file that doesn’t get checked into source control, or in a key management service like Azure’s Key Vault. This will mitigate the chances that you will accidentally check the test key into your source control and have that end up being deployed to production!

    The RegisterUserAsync() method handles registering a user with Okta and putting them into a group that corresponds to the ticket that the user is purchasing. This is done in two steps: by creating the user, then finding the group that corresponds with the ticket purchased, and adding that group’s ID to the newly created Okta user.

    Set Up Okta for Your Angular and ASP.NET Core Applications

    Dealing with user authentication in web apps is a massive pain for every developer. This is where Okta shines: it helps you secure your web applications with minimal effort.

    Why Okta?

    At Okta, our goal is to make identity management a lot easier, more secure, and more scalable than what you’re used to. Okta is a cloud service that allows developers to create, edit, and securely store user accounts and user account data, and connect them with one or multiple applications. Our API enables you to:

    Create an Okta Application

    To get started, you’ll need to create an OpenID Connect application in Okta. Sign up for a forever-free developer account (or log in if you already have one).

    Okta's sign up page.

    Once you’ve logged in and landed on the dashboard page, copy down the Org URL pictured below. You will need this later.

    Okta developer dashboard highlighting the org URL.

    Then create a new application by browsing to the Applications tab and clicking Add Application, and from the first page of the wizard choose Single-Page App.

    Create application wizard with Single Page App selected.

    On the settings page, enter the following values:

    • Name: TicketSalesApp
    • Base URIs: http://localhost:5000
    • Login redirect URIs: http://localhost:5000/implicit/callback

    You can leave the other values unchanged, and click Done.

    The settings page for the application.

    Now that your application has been created copy down the Client ID and Client secret values on the following page, you’ll need them soon.

    The new client ID and client secret.

    Finally, create a new authentication token. This will allow your app to talk to Okta to retrieve user information, among other things. To do this, click the API tab at the top of the page followed by the Create Token button. Give your token a name, in this case, “Crud API” would be a good name, then click Create Token. Copy down this token value as you will need it soon.

    Screen showing the API Token.

    Even though you have a method for registering users, you’ll need to create the groups for the tickets, set up your API to use Okta, and configure it to receive access tokens from users of the Angular app for authorization.

    Start by creating a group for each of the three tickets you’ll be selling. From the Okta dashboard hover over the Users menu item until the drop-down appears and choose Groups. From the Groups page, click the Add Group button.

    List of groups

    In the Add Group modal that pops up, add a group for each ticket type.

    Add group

    Now, you’ll need to add these newly created groups to the ticket sales application. Click on the Applications menu item, and choose the TicketSalesApp from the list of apps. It should open on the Assignments tab. Click on the Assign button and choose Assign to Groups from the button’s drop-down menu. From here, assign each group you just created to the Ticket Sales app.

    Assign group

    Add Groups to the ID Token

    Now you just need to add these groups to the token.

    • Hover over the API menu item and select Authorization Servers.
    • Select the default authorization server (it was created for you when you created your Okta account).
    • Choose the Claims tab, and click Add Claim.
    • The name of the claim will be “groups”, Select ID Token and Always from the Include in token type setting.
    • Choose Groups from the Value Type setting, and Regex from the Filter setting.
    • In the text box type .*.
    • Finally, make sure the Disable claim checkbox is unchecked and that the Any scope radio button is selected in the Include in setting.

    Add Groups to Token Screen

    Add Okta to Your Angular Application

    To set up your Angular application to use Okta for authentication, you’ll need to install the Angular SDK and the rxjs compatibility package.

    npm install @okta/okta-angular rxjs-compat@6 --save
    

    Add the components to your app.module.ts file in src/app by first importing them:

    import {
      OktaCallbackComponent,
      OktaAuthModule,
      OktaAuthGuard
    } from '@okta/okta-angular';
    

    Now add a configuration variable right below the import statements:

    const config = {
      issuer: '/oauth2/default',
      redirectUri: 'http://localhost:5000/implicit/callback',
      clientId: '{yourClientId}'
    };
    

    Add the callback route to the routes in the imports section of the @NgModule declaration:

    { path: 'implicit/callback', component: OktaCallbackComponent }
    

    That’s all for now in the Angular application. Now let’s get the ASP.NET Core app set up.

    Add Okta to Your ASP.NET Core API

    Now you need to let the API know two things: how to get the user’s identity from an access token (when one is sent) and how to call Okta for user management.

    Start by adding the Okta Nuget package:

    dotnet add package Okta.Sdk
    

    For the ASP.NET Core application, the best thing to do is set up a file in your home folder to store the configuration. Okta’s SDK will pick the settings up for you, and you’ll never accidentally check them into source control!

    In your home directory, create a .okta folder and add a file called okta.yaml. Your home folder will depend on your operating system. For *nix variants like Linux or macOS it is:

    ~/.okta/okta.yaml
    

    for Windows environments it is:

    %userprofile%\.okta\okta.yaml
    

    YAML is just a file format for configuration. The okta.yaml file looks like:

    okta:
      client:
        orgUrl: "https://dev-846291.oktapreview.com/"
        token: "{yourApiToken}"
    

    In the ConfigureServices() method before the services.AddMvc() line, add:

    services.AddAuthentication(sharedOptions =>
    {
      sharedOptions.DefaultAuthenticateScheme = JwtBearerDefaults.AuthenticationScheme;
      sharedOptions.DefaultChallengeScheme = JwtBearerDefaults.AuthenticationScheme;
    })
    .AddJwtBearer(options =>
    {
      options.Authority = "/oauth2/default";
      options.Audience = "api://default";
    });
    

    And in the Configure() method before the app.UseMvc() line add:

    app.UseAuthentication();
    

    That’s it! Now your ASP.NET Core app will take that bearer token, get the user’s information from Okta add them to the User object so you can get the currently requesting user’s data. It will also use the API token stored in the okta.yaml file when registering users.

    Show the Tickets in Your Angular App

    Now that users can purchase a ticket, you’ll want them to be able to log in and see their purchased ticket. To do this, generate a profile component using Angular’s CLI. From the src/app folder of the client app, run:

    ng g c profile
    

    Again, this is just shorthand for ng generate component profile, which will generate all the base files for the profile component. The profile.component.ts file should have the following contents:

    import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
    import { OktaAuthService } from '@okta/okta-angular';
    import 'rxjs/Rx';
    
    @Component({
      selector: 'app-profile',
      templateUrl: './profile.component.html',
      styleUrls: ['./profile.component.css']
    })
    export class ProfileComponent implements OnInit {
      user: any;
      ticket: string;
    
      constructor(private oktaAuth: OktaAuthService) {}
    
      async ngOnInit() {
        this.user = await this.oktaAuth.getUser();

    Publisher Unties and developer Souvenir Circ. announced the Nintendo Switch version of Touhou Azure Reflections will launch on August 30 for $24.99.

    View the latest trailer below:


    Here is an overview of the game:

    Annihilate enemies and dominate levels using upgradable skills. Choose from three playable characters, each with her own special ability: hard-hitting spell cards, life-saving barriers or a devastating body slam. Azure Reflections takes the familiar perspective of traditional Touhou Project shooters and turns it on its side for intense horizontal shoot-em-up action.

    Azure Reflections has multiple endings, but the sole path to the best ending is excellence. Only by mastering each girl’s skill set and defeating the bosses within the time limits leads to a conclusion to their tale.

    Functionality meets fashion with accessories that add auto-fire, increase drop rates, reduce stun time and much more. Collect tokens to purchase cat ears, glasses, wings and other fun customizations for the girls’ looks and outfit them for battle. Mow down swathes of enemies in style to take over the online leaderboards.

    Enter the troubled, cute and colorful world of Gensokyo. Originally created by one-man studio Team Shanghai Alice, the setting, sealed off from our world by a magical barrier, is the thread from which all Touhou Project games are woven. This Touhou Project fan game brings the humans and supernatural denizens of Gensokyo together to investigate the evil flowing from Scarlet Devil Manor. Can they protect their home from delightfully cruel bosses in this whimsical journey?

              Blog Post: D365 Vendor Onboarding Process      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Hi All, In this blog post, I will cover end to end process of onboarding a prospective vendor to the Approved Vendor in D365. There are a series of steps which we need to perform in order to onboard the Prospective Vendor Step by Step Here is the example which will help us to understand the process Prospective Vendor: A contact person Mr. Lee(from Alpha LLC) wants to be the vendor with BEG Customer Website: Mr. Lee will initiate this request by contacting BEG through the online portal ( WWW.BEG.com ). If there will be no online portal the vendor can contact through email address. Note: If the prospective vendor is coming through website OData integration required with D365. Vendors can sign up by providing basic information, such as the vendor name, justification, organization number, and name and email address of the contact person. The requests are imported via the Data management interface. OData Integration: Also, we can use the DMF(Data management framework) to import the prospective vendors in D365. MR. Lee will fill out all the information required to place the vendor request. DMF: It's also possible to use DMF to import the prospective vendor data in D365 Prospective Vendor Registration Request(In case you are not using DMF integration). Setup D365 Workflow (New Prospective Vendor): Once the Prospective vendor available in Prospective vendor import form the workflow will be configured to convert the prospective vendor to the Approved Vendor. Path: System Administration > Workflow > User Workflows(New Prospective Vendor) Setup Azure Active Director B2B: This will be one of the manual steps in the workflow, the responsible person will create the prospective vendor(Contact person) in the Azure AD D365FO Prospective Vendor Registration Request: The requests are available in the D365(Prospective vendor registration request form). The procurement specialist will select the prospective vendor request and review the details. If required the procurement specialist will proceed with the invitation process by clicking the "Invite User" button. The Processing status of the vendor registration request changes to “User requested“ A new user account in the Azure AD and in D365FO has been initiated in the workflow The Procurement specialist will go to the user request and reviews the details to approve it The next step is to create the Azure AD B2B user manually. D365 Vendor Collaboration Request: After the initial basic data for the prospective vendor comes into D365, it will appear in Prospective Vendors registration under Procurement & Sourcing > Vendor collaboration requests. The email invitation sent to the Vendor(Contact person) for the online registration Vendor signs up with the shared credentials through email credentials. The vendor will enter the name, address and contact information. After workflow status is approved check the status of the vendor request in the vendor request form Path: Procurement and Sourcing > Vendor collaboration > Vendor requests to see these Finally, the procurement person will complete the review process and once it's confirmed the new vendor will be created in D365. Procurement specialist make sure to select the vendor group manually in the vendor form. If you have any question related to Prospective Vendor Onboarding Process feel free to contact. Cheers!

              Patient Preferences for Different Severities of and Treatments for Overactive Bladder      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageObjective: Symptoms of overactive bladder (OAB) can have profound effects on women's quality of life. However, quantitative data on how women value these symptoms and their treatments are limited. We sought to assess women's preferences, which are referred to as utilities, for different severities of and treatment options for OAB. Methods: Eighty women-40 with OAB symptoms and 40 without OAB-were recruited from urogynecology and urology practices at an academic institution from April to November 2009. A single, trained interviewer administered a computerized preference elicitation tool to measure preferences for 4 OAB severity levels (urgency/frequency and mild, moderate, and severe urge incontinence), as well as 3 OAB treatments with and without adverse effects or complications, which included (1) anticholinergic medications, (2) botulinum toxin injection, and (3) sacral neuromodulation. Preferences were assessed using the time trade-off (TTO) method. Results: Median TTO scores for OAB decreased as severity increased (urgency/frequency, 0.88; mild, 0.92; moderate, 0.85; severe, 0.73). Median TTO scores assigned to anticholinergic medications were higher (0.93) than those for botulinum (0.88) and sacral neuromodulation (0.85), and adverse effects or complications lowered the utilities for each treatment (anticholinergics, 0.88; botulinum, 0.75; and sacral neuromodulation, 0.78). Conclusions: Women view symptoms of OAB, particularly moderate or severe symptoms, as being quite burdensome. The degree of invasiveness and the number of adverse effect/complications are important contributors to the utilities that women assign to the various treatment options.
              The Impact of the Affordable Care Act on Urogynecologic Surgery Cancelation Rates      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageObjectives We examined the impact of the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery (FPMRS) surgical cancelation rates. Methods A retrospective cohort study was performed on patients scheduling FPMRS procedures 1 year before and after ACA implementation at a regional academic medical center. We compared cancelation rates as well as sociodemographic, surgical, and medical history data. Analysis included χ2 test, t test, and univariable and multivariable logistic regression. Results We included 746 subjects, 373 each before and after ACA implementation (January 2014). Subjects were 59.2 ± 14.0 years old, predominantly white (94.9%), employed (45.8%), and married (66.6%), with a body mass index of 28.8 ± 6.2. Subjects lived a median of 24 miles from the hospital. None of these were significant predictors of cancelations. Surgery cancelation rate was 17.1% and occurred 9 days before surgery. On univariable analysis, cancelation rates did not differ relative to the ACA (15.5% before vs 18.6% after; mean difference, 3.16%; 95% confidence interval [CI], −2.29% to 8.69%; P = 0.254). Only 3 variables impacted cancelation rate on univariable analysis: women whose surgery was scheduled for later in the week, liver/renal disease, and minor vs major surgery. On multivariable regression including variables with P < 0.20 as candidate variables, the same 3 variables remained significant. Cancelations increased with procedures scheduled later in the week (odds ratio [OR], 1.169 per day; 95% CI, 1.004–1.361) and liver or renal disease (OR, 2.342; 95% CI, 1.015–5.405). Major procedures had fewer cancelations (OR, 0.625; 95% CI, 0.414–0.943). The ACA implementation of still did not impact cancelations (OR, 1.230; 95% CI, 0.831–1.821). Conclusions The implementation of the ACA did not impact FPMRS cancelation rates. Significant predictors of surgical cancelation included later day of the week, comorbid renal or liver disease, and performance of a minor procedure.
              Botulinum Toxin A Injections Into Pelvic Floor Muscles Under Electromyographic Guidance for Women With Refractory High-Tone Pelvic Floor Dysfunction: A 6-Month Prospective Pilot Study      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageObjectives High-tone pelvic floor dysfunction (HTPFD) is a debilitating chronic pain disorder for many women with significant impact on their quality of life (QoL). Our objective was to determine the efficacy of electromyography-guided onabotulinumtoxinA (Botox; Allergan, Irvine, Calif) injections in treating patient’s perception of pelvic pain and improving QoL measurement scores. Methods This is a prospective pilot open-label study of women with chronic pelvic pain and HTPFD who have failed conventional therapy between January 2011 and August 2013. Botox injections (up to 300 U) were done using needle electromyography guidance, from a transperineal approach, to localize spastic pelvic floor muscles (PFMs). Data were collected at baseline, 4, 8, 12, and 24 weeks after injections. This included demographics; Visual Analog Scale (VAS) scores for pain and dyspareunia; validated questionnaires for symptoms, QoL, and sexual function; Global Response Assessment scale for pelvic pain; digital examination of PFM for tone and tenderness; and vaginal manometry. Side effects were also recorded. Results Out of 28 women who enrolled in the study, 21 completed the 6-month follow-up and qualified for analysis. The mean (SD) age was 35.1 (9.4) years (range, 22–50 years), and the mean (SD) body mass index was 25 (4.4). Comorbidities included interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (42.9%) and vulvodynia (66.7%). Overall, 61.9% of subjects reported improvement on Global Response Assessment at 4 weeks and 80.9% at 8, 12, and 24 weeks post injection, compared with baseline. Of the subjects who were sexually active at baseline, 58.8% (10/17), 68.8% (11/16), 80% (12/15), and 83.3% (15/18) reported less dyspareunia at 4, 8, 12, and 24 weeks, respectively. Dyspareunia Visual Analog Scale score significantly improved at weeks 12 (5.6, P = 0.011) and 24 (5.4, P = 0.004) compared with baseline (7.8). Two of the 4 patients who avoided sexual activity at baseline secondary to dyspareunia resumed and tolerated intercourse after Botox. Sexual dysfunction as measured by the Female Sexual Distress Scale significantly improved at 8 weeks (27.6, P = 0.005), 12 weeks (27.9, P = 0.006), and 24 weeks (22.6, P < 0.001) compared with baseline (34.5). The Short-Form 12 Health Survey (SF-12) showed improved QoL in the physical composite score at all post injections visits (42.9, 44, 43.1, and 45.5 vs 40 at baseline; P < 0.05), and in the mental composite score at both 12 and 24 weeks (44.3 and 47.8 vs 38.5, P = 0.012). Vaginal manometry demonstrated significant decrease in resting pressures and in maximum contraction pressures at all follow-up visits (P < 0.05). Digital assessment of PFM (on a scale from 0 to 4) showed decreased tenderness on all visits (mean of 1.9, 1.7, 1.8, 1.9; P < 0.001) compared with baseline (2.8). Reported postinjection adverse effects included worsening of the following preexisting conditions: constipation (28.6%), stress urinary incontinence (4.8%), fecal incontinence (4.8%), and new onset stress urinary incontinence (4.8%). Conclusions Electromyography-guided Botox injection into PFM could be beneficial for women with refractory HTPFD who have failed conservative therapy.

    imageThe field of ergonomics is limited in scope and practice for the gynecologic surgeon. When used correctly, ergonomic principles should enhance worker performance and minimize injury. Given the broad range of operative approaches in gynecology (from vaginal to open abdominal to minimally invasive), coupled with a rapid expansion in developing technologies, safety and efficiency are of the utmost importance not only for the patient, but for the operative staff and surgeons. Based on institutional experience, we present some strategies to improve the ergonomic environment in the operating room, to help lessen personal fatigue and injury for gynecologic surgeons in the 21st century.

              Direct Sales IT Leaders: These 2 Tools Will Help Your Sales Leaders Increase Distributor Performance      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Every IT leader has felt pressure from the sales organization to produce tools that will increase sales.
     
    This group is sometimes the hardest to serve - their requests are usually tinged with urgency, and their willingness to spend time with you designing solutions is sometimes limited.
    .
     
    .
    And there's the fact that the fate of the company rests in their hands. They may be difficult to serve, but they need all the help they can get.
    So - if you're not using artificial intelligence tools to increase your average order size and frequency, you may want to take a look at what you're missing.
    Artificial Intelligence: The Turnkey Technology You're Not Using Yet
     
    Artificial intelligence sounds complicated, and when you get down into the nuts and bolts of the technology, it is.
     
    However, what you need to know is simple. It can plug right into your organization and your business support systems (like CRM) very simply. This allows it to learn your business and perform high-value tasks, freeing up human labor for the things humans are best at.
    The most relevant form of artificial intelligence today is the chatbot, or "bot" for short.
     
    Deploying artificial intelligence in the form of a bot is like giving each of your distributors their very own assistant.
     
    There are two main ways that you can deploy a bot for your sales team:
    1. Deploying tools that prompt your distributors and contact center reps to take smarter actions
    2. Deploying tools that take those actions automatically
    You can use AI in both ways simultaneously if you choose to do so.
     
    How Does It Work?
    AI plugs right into your CRM and other business support systems, which enables it to process massive amounts of data about customers. Using this data, it can do things like the following:

    Marsh-whortleberry, you say? I am speechless. OED says a whortleberry is a barberry, and is but a southwestern dialectal form of <i>hurtleberry</i>, which is "apparently a derivative of <i>hurt</i> n. (3)" 'id.' (SW <i>whort</i>), which may be related to the heraldic term <i>hurt</i> n. (2) 'a roundel azure; usually held to represent a hurtleberry'. For this <i>hurt</i> there's a 1578 quote: "<i>heurtes,</i> small Azure balls, tearmed (in Heraldry) hurts on men, and tongue-moles on women" (Cotgrave). French <i>heurt</i> does refer to a bruise, and is the source of the heraldic term, but is not used for any berry. So perhaps the heraldic term and the berry both ultimately mean 'bruise blue'. I'm still not bringing the word <i>whortleberry</i> into my house, thank you very much.

    摘要

    在私有数据中心运维MySQL的方式是单机运行、一主一备,甚至是多主复制的集群,为了保证高可用,成本是比较高的。而基于云计算,托管运维大量的用户MySQL实例,如何用Cloud Native的原则,通过沙箱隔离、计算和数据的完全分离,实现低成本和高扩展的高可用方案?通过开篇分享,使大家更好的理解Cloud RDS的架构精髓。进而通过基于Azure storage的针对MySQL读写分离的优化,比较深入的分享了一种可以借鉴的主从分离优化技术。

    云原生的托管服务架构 云原生的MySQL PaaS服务

    我们的MySQL托管运维并非直接将数据存储在本地SSD,而是所有的连接都需要经过一层代理(可以理解为无状态的外部服务器),然后由代理将用户的连接转发到某一个虚拟机中的MySQL实例上。每个虚拟机上有一个Agent用来监控运行的MySQL服务状态,如果其中某个数据库出现问题,就会在其他的虚拟机上恢复该数据库。这种情况下Proxy的好处就显现出来了,因为用户连接是在proxy上,所以当后方数据库出现问题,proxy会将连接重新定位到已恢复的数据库上。

    另外我们将所有数据库的读写操作都从本地移到了网络上,真正做到了计算和存储的分离。所有MySQL的数据文件不是保存在本地硬盘,而是存储在分布式的基于网络的存储框架上,数据在网络上被保存多份,同时严格监控用户的带宽资源消耗。

    从节点的管理上来看本地的数据中心如果有上千台的节点就已经算是不小的网络了,而公有云在全球有超过百万的物理节点。面对如此多的节点运维的思路和架构会完全不同,我们在网络和存储方面实际上是花费了很大的精力才做到了不同租户或用户之间的隔离。

    如果是单一线程的任务,本地存储肯定是比网络要快的,因为网络有着延时,但实际上云计算可以通过高并发来回避在延迟方面的不足。

    MySQL PaaS的好处

    MySQL PaaS带来了更方便快速的部署,高性价比,高可用性,以及高安全性的全托管服务。缺点在于限制了用户对数据库操作的权力,因为我们是将多个用户的数据放在一起运维,所以对整个环境的安全性要求比较高。

    平台支持

    我们当前的架构下只是将MySQL作为一个进程,更多的重点是在MySQL任务监控、快速恢复上。由于架构中有代理、计算和分离,所以可以很容易的做到单点的高可用。这种情况下我们后台用的DB Engine是MySQL社区版本,支持现有的MySQL客户端和工具。

    启动备用库

    当前架构下计算和数据分离之后,数据是被存储在Azure storage上,这时虽然单点就可以达到高可用,但是在数据文件较大的时候,由于网络原因恢复起来需要一定的时间,经过监控发现基本上在3分钟以内。如果用户对时间有要求的话,一般是建议用户再建一个读写分离的从库,主库出现问题的时候手动将从库提升为主库。不过我们提供了更方便的启用备用库功能,可以将从库自动的提升为主库,从而节省时间,此时故障恢复时间通常在分钟级别(一般在60秒内)。

    一体化的数据库运维平台
    云原生的MySQL托管服务架构及读写分离的优化

    这是我们于2017年5月份在全球推出的一体化数据运维平台,MySQL、SQL Database、SQL Database warehouse 、PostgreSQL被统一的放在该平台中。它可以对运维数据进行优化监测并给出建议,能够按需弹性放缩,资源管理。

    读写分离的优化 支持基于副本的横向扩展

    正常情况下主库和从库之间通过网络建立连接,然后将binlog从主库传输到从库,接着从库将binlog作为一个Relay插入到数据库中。如果主从库都是在MySQL PaaS上,那么MySQL实际就没有打开Replication开关,此时从库会另起一个进程,从Azure Storage上读取主库的binlog,然后解析插入到数据库中。这种架构下支持基于副本的横向扩展,适用于读取压力较大,或读远大于写的业务,从属实例不受限制,不过一般5个足够了。

    支持混合云的数据库同步

    由于目前混合云的应用还是比较多的,所以我们也支持混合云的数据库同步。比如从本地同步数据到Azure上以满足Azure上的应用需要,或者应用平滑迁移到Azure。可以通过管理门户配置同步和查看同步状态。

    新一代的架构框架技术 Stateless Services Pattern
    云原生的MySQL托管服务架构及读写分离的优化

    我们这里来回顾下基于云架构开发后台程序的两个Patter,首先是无状态模式。这个模式下存储和前端服务器可以很容易的弹性放缩,问题于中间的业务层,因为业务之间是相互依赖,且用户的数据代表某种状态,要访问这些状态就不可避免的引入排队机制、入锁机制等。面对这些问题常见的做法是使用蓄水池方法,将用户的请求放在queues中,降低无状态服务的复杂度同时还可以达到无线扩展队列的需求。

    Stateful Services Pattern
    云原生的MySQL托管服务架构及读写分离的优化

    在实际的应用中其实大部分还是采用有状态模式,这种模式下依赖于有状态中间件,有状态中间件通过分区的方式解决高并发,在分区内使用传统方式保证数据一致性。这种情况下数据的传输过程相对较少,延迟得到了保障。

    Traditional Application
    云原生的MySQL托管服务架构及读写分离的优化

    传统应用程序的API、UI、引擎等都是整合在一起,在编译的时候就能确定相互之间的依赖关系并能够方便的发现问题。不过由于所有的模块都被整合在一起,牵一发而动全身,所以在水平扩展服务能力的时候要付出相当大的代价。

    Application composed of microservices
    云原生的MySQL托管服务架构及读写分离的优化

    不同于传统应用,微服务框架中所有的模块都是一个独立的进程,模块之间通过HTTP或者RPC等协议进行沟通。相当于应用中包含多个服务,服务之间通过标准协议调用,不过只有在运行时才能发现错误,而非编译的时候。由于是完全基于网络的框架,所以必须要考虑到网络延迟的问题。微服务所带来的好处在于能够很方便的升级,模块数据相对来说容易监控,模块升级也已经可持续。

    Service Fabric
    云原生的MySQL托管服务架构及读写分离的优化

    Service Fabric是微软的微服务框架。该框架中有一个ApplicationType用来定义App类型,类似于编程中的class。App创建后的实例可以有不同的名字,可以通过不同的名字来管理同一个实例。它同时支持有状态和无状态两种服务。其中有状态服务可以声明式的支持多个分区,每个分区中实例可以创建多个副本,相当于通过分区提高高并发能力,通过副本提供高可用。在多个分区的情况下,每个有状态的服务本身就可以创建一个状态机,这个状态机可以复制到其他几点的副本中。由于副本的复制可配置,所以可以让对有状态数据的访问基于本地节点,以此来降低延迟。

    Service Fabric的另一个特点是对集群上运行的所有任务的自动部署,比如原来有5个节点10个分区,这不同的应用分区在这5个节点上会被自动分配,当节点扩大的时候,整个任务又会重新分配。这些部分都是自动完成,因此不用程序去显示的关注。


    云原生的MySQL托管服务架构及读写分离的优化

    整个Service Fabric提供了一个更好的底层框架,能够实现高可用、可测试、可管理、可缩放。可测试指的是在服务升级的时候可以支持灰度发布,还可以设定某个条件判断升级版本是否有问题,一旦发现问题就会自动的回滚。可管理指的是基于内核级的检查和管理,当某个节点出现问题的时候,该节点上的运行的任务会在其他的节点上被自动的管理恢复。可缩放指的是增加节点的时候,整个任务会被重新分配。

    SQL Azure Service architecture

    SQL Azure架构中的SQL Server数据库被分解成很多的Service Fabric应用程序。物理集群被分成两部分,一部分作为控制管理的节点集群叫做Control Plane,它更多的做数据库的运维服务,另一部分用户的数据库任务运行在Data Plane上。他们之间有严格的安全发送机制,用来保证用户和数据库之间的运行环境。

    Drawbridge

    Drawbridge是微软应用的新的容器技术,它既有虚拟机技术的强隔离性,又具有容器技术的高计算密度。核心是传统的NT Process,有1200多个API,显然这么多API是很难做到严格意义上的绝对安全,因此后续进行了优化。首先是将NT kernel运行在用户态,第二是让用户态的操作系统和真正的操作系统之间只允许不超过15个系统调用。基于这两步NT上出现了一个特殊的进程Picoprocess,它从外部看就是一个空进程,唯一与它有交互的是一个很小的系统内核库。

    SQL Server for linux也应用了Drawbridge技术,这样就可以将原先windows上的SQL Server通过SQLPAL层移植到Linux上。

    Disclaimer: probably going to next years TechEd.  (but not 100% sure) As with most TechEd's, this is not one of the best - but it's not bad.  Some impressions so far: The food is not bad, through perhaps not as much choice as in previous years.  The snacks, while a bit limited, are at least available.  The alumni lounge is ok, through perhaps not as good as last years.  Wifi is a bit worse than previous years - not really working in the big room, and a bit sporadic in the rest of the building. The device seems to make a big difference - the iPad seems to connect the easiest, while the iPhone & Lumia 800 are really struggling.  The real problem is the content - not as developer focused as in previous years.  This shows up in a number of different ways, for example while there is a visual studio booth, there is not much sign of anybody from the language teams.  This is one of few TechEd's where I don't feel very surprised about anything - seen most of the developer stuff in previews. One example where I was surprised was the pre-conf on c++ - its been years since I did any c++, but based on that session perhaps I should start again. While there are sessions, I'm not finding my schedule very challenged. For each time-slot there only seems to 1, or rarely 2, interesting sessions.  The focus seems to be on windows 8, Azure and the phone, which while interesting (might give win8 a go), are not enough.

    It’s tempting to think of machine learning as a magic black box. In goes the data; out come predictions. But there’s no magic in there—just data and algorithms, and models created by processing the data through the algorithms.

    If you’re in the business of deriving actionable insights from data through machine learning, it helps for the process not to be a black box. The more you understand what’s inside the box, the better you’ll understand every step of the process for how data can be transformed into predictions, and the more powerful your predictions can be.

    Devops people speak of “build pipelines” to describe how software is taken from source code to deployment. Just as developers have a pipeline for code, data scientists have a pipeline for data as it flows through their machine learning solutions. Mastering how that pipeline comes together is a powerful way to know machine learning itself from the inside out.

    If you have an addition you'd like to make, please submit a Pull Request or file an issue on the repo.

    THANK YOU to all of the authors of the content referenced in this wiki and to all who contributed!

    Functional Segregation

    When designing a red team infrastructure that needs to stand up to an active response or last for a long-term engagement (weeks, months, years), it’s important to segregate each asset based on function. This provides resilience and agility against the Blue Team when campaign assets start getting detected. For example, if an assessment’s phishing email is identified, the Red Team would only need to create a new SMTP server and payload hosting server, rather than a whole team server setup.

    Consider segregating these functions on different assets:

    • Phishing SMTP
    • Phishing payloads
    • Long-term command and control (C2)
    • Short-term C2

    Each of these functions will likely be required for each social engineering campaign. Since active incident response is typical in a Red Team assessment, a new set of infrastructure should be implemented for each campaign.

    Using Redirectors

    To further resilience and concealment, every back-end asset (i.e. team server) should have a redirector placed in front of it. The goal is to always have a host between our target and our backend servers. Setting up the infrastructure in this manner makes rolling fresh infrastructure much quicker and easier - no need to stand up a new team server, migrate sessions, and reconnect non-burned assets on the backend.

    Common redirector types:

    • SMTP
    • Payloads
    • Web Traffic
    • C2 (HTTP(S), DNS, etc)

    Each redirector type has multiple implementation options that best fit different scenarios. These options are discussed in further detail in the Redirectors section of the wiki. Redirectors can be VPS hosts, dedicated servers, or even apps running on a Platform-as-a-Service instance.

    Sample Design

    Here is a sample design, keeping functional segregation and redirector usage in mind:

    Sample Infrastructure Setup

    Further Resources

    Perceived domain reputation will vary greatly depending on the products your target is using, as well as their configuration. As such, choosing a domain that will work on your target is not an exact science. Open source intelligence gathering (OSINT) will be critical in helping make a best guess at the state of controls and which resources to check domains against. Luckily, online advertisers face the same problems and have created some solutions we can leverage.

    expireddomains.net is a search engine for recently expired or dropped domains. It provides search and advanced filtering, such as age of expiration, number of backlinks, number of Archive.org snapshots, SimilarWeb score. Using the site, we can register pre-used domains, which will come with domain age, that look similar to our target, look similar to our impersonation, or simply are likely to blend in on our target’s network.

    expireddomains.net

    When choosing a domain for C2 or data exfiltration, consider choosing a domain categorized as Finance or Healthcare. Many organizations will not perform SSL middling on those categories due to the possibility of legal or data sensitivity issues. It is also important to ensure your chosen domain is not associated with any previous malware or phishing campaigns.

    The tool CatMyFish by Charles Hamilton(@MrUn1k0d3r) automates searches and web categorization checking with expireddomains.net and BlueCoat. It can be modified to apply more filters to searches or even perform long term monitoring of assets you register.

    Another tool, DomainHunter by Joe Vest (@joevest) & Andrew Chiles (@andrewchiles), returns BlueCoat/WebPulse, IBM X-Force, and Cisco Talos categorization, domain age, alternate available TLDs, Archive.org links, and an HTML report. Additionally, it performs checks for use in known malware and phishing campaigns using Malwaredomains.com and MXToolBox. This tool also includes OCR support for bypassing the BlueCoat/WebPulse captchas. Check out the blog post about the tool's initial release for more details.

    Yet another tool, AIRMASTER by Max Harley (@Max_68) uses expireddomains.net and Bluecoat to find categorized domains. This tool uses OCR to bypass the BlueCoat captcha, increasing the search speed.

    If a previously-registered domain isn't available or you would prefer a self-registered domain, it's possible to categorize domains yourself. Using the direct links below or a tool like Chameleon by Dominic Chell (@domchell). Most categorization products will overlook redirects or cloned content when determining the domain's categorization. For more information about Chameleon usage, check out Dominic's post Categorisation is not a security boundary.

    Finally, make sure your DNS settings have propogated correctly.

    Easy Web-Based Phishing

    The words easy and phishing never really seem to go together. Setting up a proper phishing infrastructure can be a real pain. The following tutorial will provide you with the knowledge and tools to quickly setup a phishing server that passes "most" spam filters to-date and provides you with a RoundCube interface for an easy phishing experience including two-way communications with your target. There are many setup's and posts out there regarding phishing. This is just one method.

    Once you have a domain that passes the proper checks listed in the previous section and have your phishing server spun-up, you'll need to create a couple "A" records for your domain as pictured.

    Next, ssh into your phishing server and make sure you have a proper FQDN hostname listed in your /etc/hosts. Example "127.0.0.1 email.yourphishingserver.com email localhost"

    Now, you're going to install the web front-end to phish from in just a few easy steps. Start by downloading the latest "BETA" version of iRedMail onto your phishing server. Easy way is to right click the download button, copy the link address, use wget to download directly onto your phishing server. Next, untar it "tar -xvf iRedMail-0.9.8-beta2.tar.bz2". Navigate into the unpacked folder and make the iRedMail.sh script executable (chmod +x iRedMail.sh). Execute the script as root, follow the prompts, and you'll need to reboot to finish everything.

    You'll want to make sure you have all the proper DNS records ponting to your mail server. (https://docs.iredmail.org/setup.dns.html). For DKIM, the new command should be "amavisd-new showkeys" to list your DKIM key.

    For DMARC we can use (https://www.unlocktheinbox.com/dmarcwizard/) to generate our dmarc entry.

    iRedMail Dashboard

    Now, create a user to phish with.

    iRedMail Create User

    Login to the RoundCube interface with your new user and phish responsibly!

    Cobalt Strike Phishing

    Cobalt Strike provides customizable spearphishing functionality to support pentest or red team email phishing. It supports templates in HTML and/or plaintext formats, attachments, a bounceback address, URL embedding, remote SMTP server usage, and per-message send delays. Another interesting feature is the ability to add a unique token to each user's embedded URL for click tracking.

    Phishing Frameworks

    Beyond rolling your own phishing setup or using a pentest or red teaming fraework, like Cobalt Strike, there are numerous tools and frameworks dedicated to email phishing. While this wiki won't go into detail about each framework, a few resources for each are collected below:

    Gophish

    Phishing Frenzy

    The Social-Engineer Toolkit

    FiercePhish (formerly FirePhish)

    SMTP

    “Redirector” may not be the best word to describe what we’re going to accomplish, but the goal is the same as with our other redirection. We want to remove any traces of our phishing origination from the final email headers and provide a buffer between the victim and our backend server. Ideally, the SMTP redirector will be quick to setup and easy to decommission.

    There are two key actions we want to configure an SMTP redirector to perform:

    Sendmail

    Remove previous server headers

    Add the following line to the end of /etc/mail/sendmail.mc:

    define(`confRECEIVED_HEADER',`by $j ($v/$Z)$?r with $r$. id $i; $b')dnl

    Add to the end of /etc/mail/access:

    IP-to-Team-Server *TAB* RELAY
    Phish-Domain *TAB* RELAY

    Removing Sender’s IP Address From Email’s Received From Header

    Removing Headers from Postfix setup

    Configure a catch-all address

    This will relay any email received to *@phishdomain.com to a chosen email address. This is highly useful to receive any responses or bounce-backs to a phishing email.

    echo PHISH-DOMAIN >> /etc/mail/local-host-names

    Add the following line right before //Mailer Definitions// (towards the end) of /etc/mail/sendmail.mc:

    FEATURE(`virtusertable', `hash -o /etc/mail/virtusertable.db')dnl

    Add the following line to the end of /etc/mail/virtusertable:

    @phishdomain.com  external-relay-address

    Note: The two fields should be tab-separated

    Postfix

    Postfix provides an easier alternative to sendmail with wider compatiblity. Postfix also offers full IMAP support with Dovecot. This allows testers to correspond in real-time with phishing targets who respond to the original message, rather than relying on the catch-all address and having to create a new message using your phishing tool.

    A full guide to setting up a Postfix mail server for phishing is available in Julian Catrambone's (@n0pe_sled) post Mail Servers Made Easy.

    DNS

    Sample DNS Redirector Setup

    Note: When using C2 redirectors, a foreign listener should be configured on your post-exploitation framework to send staging traffic through the redirector domain. This will cause the compromised host to stage through the redirector like the C2 traffic itself.

    socat for DNS

    socat can be used to redirect incoming DNS packets on port 53 to our team server. While this method works, some user’s have reported staging issues with Cobalt Strike and or latency issues using this method. Edit 4/21/2017: The following socat command seems to work well thanks to testing from @xorrior:

    socat udp4-recvfrom:53,reuseaddr,fork udp4-sendto:<IPADDRESS>; echo -ne
    

    Redirecting Cobalt Strike DNS Beacons - Steve Borosh

    iptables for DNS

    iptables DNS forwarding rules have been found to work well with Cobalt Strike. There does not seem to be any of the issues that socat has handling this type of traffic.

    An example DNS redirector rule-set is below.

    iptables -I INPUT -p udp -m udp --dport 53 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p udp --dport 53 -j DNAT --to-destination <IP-GOES-HERE>:53
    iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -j MASQUERADE
    iptables -I FORWARD -j ACCEPT
    iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
    sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward=1

    Also, change "FORWARD" chain policy to "ACCEPT"

    DNS redirection can also be done behind NAT

    Some may have the requirement or need to host a c2 server on an internal network. Using a combination of IPTABLES, SOCAT, and reverse ssh tunnels, we can certainly achieve this in the following manner.

    Sample DNS NAT Setup

    In this scenario we have our volitile redirector using IPTables to forward all DNS traffic using the rule example described earlier in this section. Next, we create an SSH reverse port forward tunnel from our internal c2 server, to our main redirector. This will forward any traffic the main redirector receives on port 6667 to the internal c2 server on port 6667. Now, start socat on our team server to fork any of the incoming TCP traffic on port 6667 to UDP port 53 which, is what our DNS c2 needs to listen on. Finally, we similarly setup a socat instance on the main redirector to redirect any incoming UDP port 53 traffic into our SSH tunnel on port 6667.

    HTTP(S)

    Note: When using C2 redirectors, a foreign listener should be configured on your post-exploitation framework to send staging traffic through the redirector domain. This will cause the compromised host to stage through the redirector like the C2 traffic itself.

    socat vs mod_rewrite

    socat provides a ‘dumb pipe’ redirection. Any request socat receives on the specified source interface/port is redirected to the destination IP/port. There is no filtering or conditional redirecting. Apache mod_rewrite, on the other hand, provides a number of methods to strengthen your phishing and increase the resilience of your testing infrastructure. mod_rewrite has the ability to perform conditional redirection based on request attributes, such as URI, user agent, query string, operating system, and IP. Apache mod_rewrite uses htaccess files to configure rulesets for how Apache should handle each incoming request. Using these rules, you could, for instance, redirect requests to your server with the default wget user agent to a legitimate page on your target's website.

    In short, if your redirector needs to perform conditional redirection or advanced filtering, use Apache mod_rewrite. Otherwise, socat redirection with optional iptables filtering will suffice.

    socat for HTTP

    socat can be used to redirect any incoming TCP packets on a specified port to our team server.

    The basic syntax to redirect TCP port 80 on localhost to port 80 on another host is:

    socat TCP4-LISTEN:80,fork TCP4:<REMOTE-HOST-IP-ADDRESS>:80
    

    If your redirector is configured with more than one network interface, socat can be bound to a specific interface, by IP address, with the following syntax:

    socat TCP4-LISTEN:80,bind=10.0.0.2,fork TCP4:1.2.3.4:80
    

    In this example, 10.0.0.2 is one of the redirector's local IP addresses and 1.2.3.4 is the remote team server's IP address.

    iptables for HTTP

    In addition to socat, iptables can perform 'dumb pipe' redirection via NAT. To forward the redirector's local port 80 to a remote host, use the following syntax:

    iptables -I INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT --to-destination <REMOTE-HOST-IP-ADDRESS>:80
    iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -j MASQUERADE
    iptables -I FORWARD -j ACCEPT
    iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
    sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward=1
    

    SSH for HTTP

    We have previously covered using SSH for DNS tunnels. SSH works as a solid, and robust means to break through NAT and obtain a way for the implant to connect to a redirector and into your server environment. Before setting up an SSH redirector, you must add the following lines to /etc/ssh/sshd_config:

    # Allow the SSH client to specify which hosts may connect
    GatewayPorts yes
    
    # Allow both local and remote port forwards
    AllowTcpForwarding yes
    

    To forward the redirector's local port 80 to your internal teamsrver, use the following syntax on the internal server:

    tmux new -S redir80
    ssh <redirector> -R *:80:localhost:80
    Ctrl+B, D
    

    You can also forward more than one port, for example if you want 443 and 80 to be open all at once:

    tmux new -S redir80443
    ssh <redirector> -R *:80:localhost:80 -R *:443:localhost:443
    Ctrl+B, D
    

    Payloads and Web Redirection

    When serving payload and web resources, we want to minimize the ability for incident responders to review files and increase the chances of successfully executing the payload, whether to establish C2 or gather intelligence.

    Sample Apache Redirector Setup

    Apache Mod_Rewrite usage and examples by Jeff Dimmock:

    Other Apache mod_rewrite usage and examples:

    To automatically set up Apache Mod_Rewrite on a redirector server, check out Julain Catrambone's (@n0pe_sled) blog post Mod_Rewrite Automatic Setup and the accompanying tool.

    C2 Redirection

    The intention behind redirecting C2 traffic is twofold: obscure the backend team server and appear to be a legitimate website if browsed to by an incident responder. Through the use of Apache mod_rewrite and customized C2 profiles or other proxying (such as with Flask), we can reliably filter the real C2 traffic from investigative traffic.

    C2 Redirection with HTTPS

    Building on "C2 Redirection" above, another method is to have your redirecting server use Apache's SSL Proxy Engine to accept inbound SSL requests, and proxy those to requests to a reverse-HTTPS listener. Encryption is used at all stages, and you can rotate SSL certificates on your redirector as needed.

    To make this work with your mod_rewrite rules, you need to place your rules in "/etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default-le-ssl.conf" assuming you've used LetsEncrypt (aka CertBot) to install your certificate. Also, to enable the SSL ProxyPass engine, you'll need the following lines in that same config file:

    # Enable the Proxy Engine
    SSLProxyEngine On
    
    # Tell the Proxy Engine where to forward your requests
    ProxyPass / https://DESTINATION_C2_URL:443/
    ProxyPassReverse / https://DESTINATION_C2_URL:443/
    
    # Disable Cert checking, useful if you're using a self-signed cert
    SSLProxyCheckPeerCN off
    SSLProxyCheckPeerName off
    SSLProxyCheckPeerExpire off

    Other Apache mod_rewrite Resources

    Cobalt Strike

    Cobalt Strike modifies its traffic with Malleable C2 profiles. Profiles provide highly-customizable options for modifying how your server’s C2 traffic will look on the wire. Malleable C2 profiles can be used to strengthen incident response evasion, impersonate known adversaries, or masquerade as legitimate internal applications used by the target.

    As you begin creating or modifying Malleable C2 profiles, it's important to keep data size limits for the Beacon info placement. For example, configuring the profile to send large amounts of data in a URL parameter will require many requests. For more information about this, check out Raphael Mudge's blog post Beware of Slow Downloads.

    If you encounter issues with your Malleable C2 profile and notice the teamserver console outputting errors, refer to Raphael Mudge's blog post Broken Promises and Malleable C2 Profiles for troubleshooting tips.

    Empire

    Empire uses Communication Profiles, which provide customization options for the GET request URIs, user agent, and headers. The profile consists of each element, separated by the pipe character, and set with the set DefaultProfile option in the listeners context menu.

    Here is a sample default profile:

    "/CWoNaJLBo/VTNeWw11212/|Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0;Windows NT 5.1)|Accept:image/gif, image/x-xbitmap, image/jpeg, image/pjpeg, */*|Accept-Language:en-en"

    Alternatively, the DefaultProfile value can be set by modifying the file /setup/setup_database.py before Empire’s initial setup. This will change the default Communication Profile that Empire will use.

    In addition to the Communication Profile, consider customizing the Empire server's staging URIs, server headers, and defaut webpage content by following the steps presented in Joe Vest's (@joevest) post Empire - Modifying Server C2 Indicators.

    Leveraging trusted, legitimate web services for C2 can provide a valuable leg-up over using domains and infrastructure you've configured yourself. Configuration time and complexity varies based on the technique and service being used. A popular example of leveraging third-party services for C2 redirection is Domain Fronting.

    Domain Fronting

    Domain Fronting is a technique used by censorship evasion services and apps to route traffic through legitimate and highly-trusted domains. Popular services that support Domain Fronting include Google App Engine, Amazon CloudFront, and Microsoft Azure. It's important to note that many providers, like Google and Amazon have implemented mitigations against Domain Fronting, so some linked resources or information provided in this wiki may be outdated by the time you try to use it.

    In a nutshell, traffic uses the DNS and SNI name of the trusted service provider, Google is used in the example below. When the traffic is received by the Edge Server (ex: located at gmail.com), the packet is forwarded to the Origin Server (ex: phish.appspot.com) specified in the packet’s Host header. Depending on the service provider, the Origin Server will either directly forward traffic to a specified domain, which we’ll point to our team server, or a proxy app will be required to perform the final hop forwarding.

    Domain Fronting Overview

    For more detailed information about how Domain Fronting works, see the whitepaper Blocking-resistant communication through domain fronting and the TOR Project’s meek documentation

    In addition to the standard frontable domains, such as any google.com domain, it's possible to leverage other legitimate domains for fronting.

    For more information about hunting frontable domains, check out:

    Further Resources on Domain Fronting

    PaaS Redirectors

    Many PaaS and SaaS providers provide a static subdomain or URL for use with a provisioned instance. If the associated domain is generally highly trusted, the instances could provide extra trust to your C2 infrastructure over a purchased domain and VPS.

    To set the redirection up, you will need to identify a service that issues a static subdomain or URL as part of an instance. Then, either the instance will need to be configured with network or application-based redirection. The instance will act as a proxy, similar to the other redirectors discussed on this wiki.

    Specific implementation can vary greatly based on the service; however, for an example using Heroku, check out the blog post Expand Your Horizon Red Team – Modern SaaS C2 by Alex Rymdeko-Harvey (@Killswitch_GUI).

    Another interesting technique that merits further research is the use of overly-permissive Amazon S3 buckets for C2. Check out the post S3 Buckets for Good and Evil by Andrew Luke (@Sw4mp_f0x) for more details on how S3 buckets could be used for C2. This technique could be combined with the third-party C2 capabilities of Empire to use the target's legitimate S3 buckets against them.

    For another example of using PaaS for C2, check out Databases and Clouds: SQL Server as a C2 by Scott Sutherland (@_nullbind).

    Other Third-Party C2

    Other third-party services have been used in the wild for C2 in the past. Leveraging third-party websites that allow for the rapid posting or modification of user-generated content can help you evade reputation-based controls, especially if the third-party site is generally trusted.

    Check out these resources for other third-party C2 options:

    Attack infrastructure is often easy to identify, appearing like a shell of a legitimate server. We will need to take additional steps with our infrastructure to increase the likelihood of blending in with real servers amongst either the target organization or services the target may conceivably use.

    Redirectors can help blend in by redirecting invalid URIs, expiring phishing payload links, or blocking common incident responder techniques; however, attention should also be paid to the underlying host and its indicators.

    For example, in the post Fall of an Empire, John Menerick (@Lord_SQL) covers methods to detect Empire servers on the internet.

    To combat these and similar indicators, it's a good idea to modify C2 traffic patterns, modify server landing pages, restrict open ports, and modify default response headers.

    For more details about how to do these and other tactics for multiple attack frameworks, check out these posts:

    Attack infrastructure can be attacked just the same as any other internet-connected host, and it should be considered HIGHLY sensitive due to the data in use and connections into target environments.

    In 2016, remote code execution vulnerabilities were disclosed on the most common attack tools:

    iptables should be used to filter unwanted traffic and restrict traffic between required infrastructure elements. For example, if a Cobalt Strike team server will only serve assets to an Apache redirector, iptables rules should only allow port 80 from the redirector’s source IP. This is especially important for any management interfaces, such as SSH or Cobalt Strike’s default port 50050. Also consider blocking non-target country IPs. As an alternative, consider using hypervisor firewalls provided by your VPS providers. For example, Digital Ocean offers Cloud Firewalls that can protect one or multiple droplets.

    chattr can be used on team servers to prevent cron directories from being modified. Using chattr, you can restrict any user, including root, from modifying a file until the chattr attribute is removed.

    SSH should be limited to public-key authentication only and configured to use limited-rights users for initial login. For added security, consider adding multi-factor authentication to SSH.

    Update! No securing list is complete without a reminder to regularly update systems and apply hot-fixes as needed to remediate vulnerabilities.

    Of course, this list is not exhaustive of what you can do to secure a team server. Follow common hardening practices on all infrastructure:

    Specific Hardening Resources

    There are a number of resources available online discussing the secure setup and design of infrastructures. Not every design consideration will be appropriate for every attack infrastructure, but it's useful to know what options are available and what other testers are doing.

    Here are some of those resoources:

    The topics covered in this wiki strengthen attack infrastrctures, but generally require a good deal of time to design and implement. Automation can be used to greatly reduce deployment times, allowing you to deploy more complex setups in less time.

    Check out these resources about attack infrastructure automation:

    • Document everything - Running a complex Red Team infrastructure means many moving parts. Be sure to document each asset’s function and where its traffic is sent.

    • Split assets among different service providers and regions - Infrastructure assets should be spread across multiple service providers and geographic regions. Blue Team members may raise monitoring thresholds against providers identified as actively performing an attack and may even outright block a given service provider. Note: keep international privacy laws in mind if sending encrypted or sensitive data across borders.

    • Don't go overboard - It's easy to get excited about advanced techniques and want to throw the kitchen sink at a target. If you are emulating a specific adversarial threat, only leverage techniques the real threat actor used or techniques within the skillset of the threat actor. If your red team testing will attack the same target long-term, consider starting "easy" and working through the more advanced tradecraft as your assessments go on. Evolving the red team's technique alongside the blue team's will consistenly push the organization forward, whereas hitting the blue team with everything at once may overwhelm the blue team and slow the learning process.

    • Monitor logs - All logs should be monitored throughout the engagement: SMTP logs, Apache logs, tcpdump on socat redirectors, iptables logs (specific to traffic forwarding or targeted filtering), weblogs, Cobalt Strike/Empire/MSF logs. Forward logs to a central location, such as with rsyslog, for easier monitoring. Operator terminal data retention may come in handy for going over an historical command useage during an operation. @Killswitch_GUI created an easy-to-use program named lTerm that will log all bash terminal commands to a central location. Log all terminal output with lTerm. Check out Vincent Yiu's post CobaltSplunk for an example of how to send Cobalt Strike logs to Splunk for advanced infrastructure monitoring and analysis.

    • Implement high-value event alerting - Configure the attack infrastructure to generate alerts for high-value events, such as new C2 sessions or credential capture hits. One popular way of implementing alerting is via a chat platform's API, such as Slack. Check out the following posts about Slack alerting: Slack Shell Bot - Russel Van Tuyl (@Ne0nd0g), Slack Notifications for Cobalt Strike - Andrew Chiles (@AndrewChiles), Slack Bots for Trolls and Work - Jeff Dimmock (@bluscreenfojeff)

    • Fingerprint incident response - If possible, try to passively or actively fingerprint IR actions before the assessment starts. For example, send a mediocre phishing email to the target (using unrelated infrastructure) and monitor traffic that infrastructure receives. IR team investigations can disclose a good deal of information about how the team operates and what infrastructure they use. If this can be determined ahead of the assessment, it can be filtered or redirected outright.

              Moving my personal site to Azure Web sites      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Originally posted on: http://blog.davidbarrett.net/archive/2012/08/09/moving-my-personal-site-to-azure-web-sites.aspx

    For several years I have maintained a personal web site, mainly to share photo’s and news with friends and family, run a “bragging rights” football pool, and to play with asp.net.  Most of the time it was hosted on a aging laptop in my basement.  Biggest advantage, free and complete control.  Lots of disadvantages.  No scaling (not a real problem, the 10 people that logged in and out really never strained the laptop), no UPS, so if I took a power hit, it was down. 

    So, in keeping with the cloud, I decided to move it to the new Azure Sites.  Seems like the thing to do, and since MSFT is kind enough to give me some time as a Azure Insider, it would make good use of it.

    First, I moved by DB.  My database was originally hosted on a sql vm inside my house.  And it was 2 separate databases, one for the site, one for asp.net membership.  I combined the databases, moved my huge user list (10 people) and then migrated the db to SQL Azure.  went very smoothly, thanks to the sql migration wizard on codeplex.   I took a quick look around, and all the data made the migration.

    Next, I repointed all my connection strings to the SQL Azure db in my local site.  I then ran the site and did a quick smoke test on the site running in VS while bouncing against SQL Azure.  Once again, all is well. 

    Went out, created the web site from the “quick” template, published the site to the xxx.azurewebsites.net domain I created, and tested.  Man, this is too easy.

    Repointed my DNS and tried it.  Fail.  Dug in and found out that I had to promote the site to “reserved” to get anything other than the xxx.azurewebsites.net domain to respond.  Did that, added the host name on the configuration page, and we are back to testing.  And, it worked.  To easy. 

    I cranked up the scale factor a bit.  I now have a migrated a site from my aging, wheezing laptop, to a monster DC in the sky. 


              Why is IaaS important in Azure…      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Originally posted on: http://blog.davidbarrett.net/archive/2012/06/28/why-is-iaas-important-in-azurehellip.aspx

    Three weeks ago, Microsoft released the next phase of Azure.  I have had several clients waiting on this release.  The fact that they have been waiting and are now more receptive to looking at the cloud. 

    Customers expressed fear of the unknown.  And a fear of lack of control, even when that lack of control also means a huge degree of flexibility to innovate with concerns about the underlying infrastructure.  I think IaaS will be that “gateway drug” to get customers who have been hesitant to take another look at the cloud.  The dialog can change from the cloud being this big scary unknown to a resource for workloads.  The conversations should have always been, and can know be even stronger, geared toward the following points:

    1) The cloud is not unicorns and glitter, the cloud is resources.  Compute, storage, db’s, services bus, cache…..  Like many of the resources we have on-premise.  Not magic, just another resource with advantages and obstacles like any other resource.

    2) The cloud should be part of the conversation for any new project.  All of the same criteria should be applied, on-premise or off.  Cost, security, reliability, scalability, speed to deploy, cost of licenses, need to customize image, complex workloads.  We have been having these discussions for years when we talk about on-premise projects.  We make decisions on OS’s, Databases, ESB’s, configuration and products based on a myriad of factors.  We use the same factors but now we have a additional set of resources to consider in our process.

    3) The cloud is a great solution looking for some interesting problems.  It is our job to recognize the right problems that fit into the cloud, weigh the factors and decide what to do.

    IaaS makes this discussion easier, offers more choices, and often choices that many enterprises will find more better than PaaS.  Looking forward to helping clients realize the power of the cloud.

              Hosting Angular Apps on Azure Storage with an Azure Functions Back-end      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Recently I blogged hosting a Blazor App on Azure Storage. In the same way, any SPA application can be hosted on Azure Storage. Here, I’m showing hosting an Angular App . With Azure Storage, static website hosting can be used to host SPA applications. Hosting websites with Azure Storage is a cheap way for static website hosting. In the back-end, Azure Functions can be used which offers a consumption based cost model.


    Hosting Angular Apps on Azure Storage with an Azure Functions Back-end
    Prepare Azure storage

    First, let’s create a new Azure Storage account. After logging into the Microsoft Azure portal , you can create an Azure Storage account. To use static website hosting, the account needs to be a StorageV2 account.


    Hosting Angular Apps on Azure Storage with an Azure Functions Back-end

    After creating this Azure Storage account, you can configure it to enable static websites. You can find this configuration in the Settings tab select Static website , and click the button Enabled , and add an entry point for the application, e.g Index.html :


    Hosting Angular Apps on Azure Storage with an Azure Functions Back-end

    With the feature Static website enabled, you can see the the primary endpoint that can be used to access the website as soon as the needed files are deployed. A container named $web is created you need to upload the files needed by the website into this container.


    Hosting Angular Apps on Azure Storage with an Azure Functions Back-end
    Create a Angular project

    I’m using the command line to create an Angular project. You can install the Angular CLI using

    npm install -g @angular/cli

    In case you do not have npm installed, get npm .

    A new Angular project (without any ASP.NET Core backend) can be created with

    ng new angularsample

    This command creates a project structure and downloads a bunch of files from the NPM server.

    After changing to the newly created directory

    cd angularsample

    you can start the test server coming with the packages with

    ng serve --open

    The --open argument starts the default browser, so the Angular app is opened. The serve command is specified in the file project.json to start the test-server locally.

    Deployment of the Angular Project

    To create the files for deployment, the build command can be used. An optimized build for production is created with the --prod flag. The flag --build-optimizer reduces the bundle sizes for the javascript and CSS files.

    ng build --prod --build-optimizer

    This build creates the dist folder that can be used to deploy the containing files.

    To upload files to Azure Storage, multiple options exist, but with most options one by one file needs to be uploaded to the storage account. To upload multiple files at once, you can use Visual Studio Code . The extension Azure Storage allows to manage your Azure Storage Accounts, and to upload files to deploy the files for a static website. Be sure to select a subfolder in the dist directory containing the Index.html file as well as the JavaScript and CSS files.

    After installing the extension Azure Storage vor Visual Studio Code , click on the Azure icon on the left, and then the upload button to upload the files. Because in the portal Azure Storage has been configured to enable static websites, the container named $web is created in the Azure Storage account. This is the container where the upload goes to.

    The extension Azure Storage for Visual Studio Code s currently in preview. I’m using version 0.4. To enable the multi-file upload to static websites, you need to define the user setting “azureStorage.preview.staticWebsites”: true .


    Hosting Angular Apps on Azure Storage with an Azure Functions Back-end

    After deploying completes, you can access the Angular app using the link from the Azure Portal.


    Hosting Angular Apps on Azure Storage with an Azure Functions Back-end
    Using Azure Functions

    The Angular app is running. However, we don’t want to stop at this point. SPA applications without some functionality in the back-end are not that useful.

    Using services hosted in Azure App Services is not really useful when saving money by hosting the Angular app with Azure Storage. In case you already use Azure App Services, you can also host the Angular website with the same hosting plan. Saving money using Azure Storage, you can also save money with the back-end services by not to reserving CPU and memory, but using a consumption plan instead, e.g. with Azure Functions .


    Hosting Angular Apps on Azure Storage with an Azure Functions Back-end

    With Function Apps you can choose between a Consumption Plan and an App Service Plan . Depending on the number of requests and the data you download, one or the other plan is the better option to use. If you don’t have continuous load on your service, the Consumption Plan can be the cheaper one. In case you already run an App Service Plan that is not fully busy, you can use it host your Functions there as well. With Azure Functions, you don’t need to change your API if the load changes, you can easily switch the Hosting Plan .

    Using Visual Studio 2017, you can use a project template to create Azure Functions. With Azure Functions v2, a .NET Standard Library is created.

    Azure Functions offer different ways to activate them. Calling it from the Angular app, an HTTP Trigger can be used to activate the Function App. With HTTP triggers, a Storage Account is not needed. I’m selecting access rights anonymous to allow anonymous users to access to the list of books returned from the function app.


    Hosting Angular Apps on Azure Storage with an Azure Functions Back-end

    The implementation of the Azure function returns a list of Book objects:

    Configuring CORS with Azure Functions

    What needs to be done with the Azure Function to enable it to be invoked from Angular is to configure CORS. You can configure CORS from the Azure Portal selecting the name of the Function App, and selecting the tab Platform features . From there, the API configuration CORS is available. You need to enter the URL used by the Angular app to allow the Angular app accessing the Azure Function.


    Hosting Angular Apps on Azure Storage with an Azure Functions Back-end
    Call Azure Functions from Angular

    To invoke the Azure Function from Angular, the Angular app is extended, and a component created to invoke the API service. You can create Angular components with the Angular CLI:

    ng generate component books

    With the BooksComponent component, the HttpClient component is injected in the constructor of the BooksComponent class. The BASE_URL is retrieved via dependency injection as well. When the result is received, it is written to the public Book[] named books . Using the TypeScript definition for an interface, the Book type is defined with members with the same property names as the JSON format is created from the Azure Function.

    The user interface accesses the public member books , and shows its members in an HTML table using Angular data binding.

    Publishing and running the application, you can see the books returned from the Azure Function with the Angular app hosted in Azure Storage.

    Summary

    Why using Azure Storage instead of Azure App Services with static web content? It’s just a lot cheaper using Azure Storage instead of an App Service, and it scales big. With the backend, Azure Functions can be used also offering a cheap variant compared to App Services, and this variant offers big scaling.

    Static website hosting with Azure Storage is currently in preview but it looks very promising.

    Microsoft enters the fray here.   Intriguing notion of proof of authority vs Proof of work.  Examining implications.

    Microsoft’s New Ethereum Blockchain Product Gets Rid of Mining

    Software giant Microsoft has debuted a new Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) product that allows businesses across industry verticals to deploy a flexible instance of Ethereum tailored specifically for enterprise environments.

    Announced on Tuesday, Ethereum Proof-of-Authority on Azure allows enterprises to build applications on an Ethereum blockchain that is not secured by a Proof-of-Work (PoW) consensus algorithm and consequently does not require mining — features that are better suited for networks in which participants do not trust one another.

    PoW “works great in anonymous, open networks where cryptocurrency promotes security on the network,” said Azure Global software engineer Cody Born. “However, in private/consortium networks the underlying ether has no value.”

    Born explained that, since all participants on an enterprise blockchain network are known and reputable, governance can be separated from network operation.  ... "

    imageObjective A pilot study to determine health belief factors associated with osteoporosis prevention behaviors in peri-and postmenopausal women. Design We administered a survey to a convenience sample of 60 women aged 40–95 years old in an urban family practice center and an associated retirement community. The self-reported questionnaire addressed demographics, osteoporosis risk factors, current preventive behaviors for osteoporosis, and health beliefs. Results The majority of women (89%) believed that osteoporosis is a serious condition, but only 29% perceived a personal susceptibility. Women were less concerned about osteoporosis when compared with cancer, cardiovascular disease, and neurologic disorders. Only 40% of women were taking active measures to prevent osteoporosis. There was no significant relationship between active osteoporosis prevention behaviors and five health belief factors (motivation, barrier, active participant in health care, frustration, and benefit) (p ≥ 0.43). However, active behaviors to prevent osteoporosis were found to correlate with the single item “I am worried about developing osteoporosis” (p = 0.03). Most women surveyed would be willing to exercise and take calcium and a multivitamin to prevent osteoporosis. Conclusion Few women are taking active measures to prevent osteoporosis despite their belief that it is a serious condition. Our data suggest that most women do not perceive a personal susceptibility to the disease. Only women who reported actively worrying about developing osteoporosis were more likely to be engaged in significant osteoporosis preventive behaviors.

              The Differential Use of Bilobed and Trilobed Transposition Flaps in Cutaneous Nasal Reconstructive Surgery      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageBackground: Bilobed and trilobed transposition flaps are versatile random pattern transposition flaps that reliably restore nasal symmetry, topography, light reflex, and contour and are frequently used in cutaneous nasal reconstructive surgery. The authors wish to compare the characteristics of bilobed and trilobed flaps in cutaneous reconstructive surgery and to identify scenarios for their differential use. Methods: A retrospective chart review over 7 years of consecutive patients who underwent reconstruction with a bilobed or trilobed flap after Mohs micrographic surgery was performed. Statistical analysis of patient and surgery characteristics, anatomical distribution, postprocedural events, and need for revisions after both flap types was conducted. Results: One hundred eleven patients with bilobed flaps and 74 patients with trilobed flaps were identified. Bilobed flaps are significantly more frequently used on the inferior nasal dorsum and on the sidewall, whereas trilobed flaps are significantly more frequently used on the nasal tip and infratip. No significant difference in postprocedural events (e.g., complications, erythema, trapdoor) was noted between the two flap types. Conclusions: Bilobed and trilobed transposition flaps are versatile means of repair for nasal reconstruction. Trilobed flaps may be used to repair defects in a more distal nasal location than bilobed flaps. Regardless of flap type, complications are rare. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic, III.
              Microanatomy of Sensory Nerves in the Upper Eyelid: A Cadaveric Anatomical Study      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageBackground: Plastic surgery requires detailed knowledge of upper eyelid anatomy, but few authors have sufficiently described the specifics of upper eyelid nerve anatomy. This study aimed to provide a thorough description of sensory nerve anatomy in the upper eyelid and to propose considerations for upper eyelid surgery. Methods: Sixteen orbits were dissected from 16 fixed, adult human cadavers. Microscopically, the authors identified the main trunks of the infratrochlear, supratrochlear, and supraorbital nerves and all branches that projected toward the upper eyelid. The number, size, and distribution of nerve branches were recorded. Results: The branches of the infratrochlear, supratrochlear, and supraorbital nerves covered a wide range in the upper eyelid. The mean numbers of branches per nerve were 1.6 ± 1.2, 3.2 ± 1.5, and 2.6 ± 1.4, respectively. The branches of the infratrochlear nerve were distributed throughout the medial area of the upper eyelid. Those of the supratrochlear nerve were distributed throughout the medial and central areas, and the palpebral branches of the supraorbital nerve were distributed throughout the central and lateral areas of the upper eyelid. The lateral branches of the supraorbital nerve and the cutaneous branches of the lacrimal nerve were distributed in the lateral region of the orbit. Conclusions: The authors show that upper eyelid sensation is transmitted mainly by the supratrochlear and supraorbital nerves, and the authors provide a map of the distribution of upper eyelid sensory nerves. This precise anatomical knowledge about upper eyelid sensory nerves will facilitate pain control and help minimize nerve injuries during surgery.

    Have you wondered where the meme came from as it tends to follow tholland? What is a quackson? Is it an onomatopoeia? Is it a sound of a duck? If you thought so, you'd be wrong!

    - In one of the most earliest instances, tholland relates a story in an interview about a "croissant"
    - According to the meme his fans, the pastry in question sounds like "quackson"



    - At the infamous ace con (where notorious tholland fans were rude to mackie and sebstan), a fan asked tholland to say quackson
    - Mackie is all of us as he states, "What was the joke?"
    - Kevin proceeds to explain the joke is that tholland's accent and pronunciation of "croissant" sounds like "quackson" (to americans lbr)
    - Mackie then asks tholland, "Can you say croi-sandwich?"




    - In another interview (the video above at 4:50), tholland reveals that he's well aware of the meme
    - He recounts that his fans ask him to say the name of the pastry
    - Tholland encouraged his fans to leave quackson behind and move on to another meme, which as you can imagine has only added fuel to fire



    - Though tholland appears to have embraced the quackson meme, which would add onto previously embraced memes such as the frog meme
    - OP wants the breakfast

              11 essential characteristics for being a good technical advocate or interviewer      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    14265784357_5b2773e123_oI was talking to my friend Rob Caron today. He produces Azure Friday with me - it's our weekly video podcast on Azure and the Cloud. We were talking about the magic for a successful episode, but then realized the ingredients that Rob came up with were generic enough that they were the essential for anyone who is teaching or advocating for a technology.

    Personally I don't believe in "evangelism" in a technical context and I dislike the term "Technology Evangelism." Not only does it evoke The Crusades but it also implies that your religion technology is not only what's best for someone, but that it's the only solution. Java people shouldn't try to convert PHP people. That's all nonsense, of course. I like the word "advocate" because you're (hopefully) advocating for the right solution regardless of technology.

    Here's the 11 herbs and spices that are needed for a great technical talk, a good episode of a podcast or show, or a decent career talking and teaching about tech.

    1. Empathy for the guest – When talking to another person, never let someone flounder and fail – compensate when necessary so they are successful.
    2. Empathy for the audience – Stay conscious that you're delivering an talk/episode/post that people want to watch/read.
    3. Improvisation – Learn how to think on your feet and keep the conversation going (“Yes, and…”) Consider ComedySportz or other mind exercises.
    4. Listening – Don't just wait to for your turn to speak, just to say something, and never interrupt to say it. Be present and conscious and respond to what you’re hearing
    5. Speaking experience – Do the work. Hundreds of talks. Hundreds of interviews. Hundreds of shows. This ain’t your first rodeo. Being good means hard work and putting in the hours, over years, whether it's 10 people in a lunch presentation or 2000 people in a keynote, you know what to articulate.
    6. Technical experience – You have to know the technology. Strive to have context and personal experiences to reference. If you've never built/shipped/deployed something real (multiple times) you're just talking.
    7. Be a customer – You use the product, every day, and more than just to demo stuff. Run real sites, ship real apps, multiple times. Maintain sites, have sites go down and wake up to fix them. Carry the proverbial pager.
    8. Physical mannerisms – Avoid having odd personal ticks and/or be conscious of your performance on video. I know what my ticks are and I'm always trying to correct them. It's not self-critical, it's self-aware.
    9. Personal brand – I'm not a fan of "personal branding" but here's how I think of it. Show up. (So important.) You’re a known quantity in the community. You're reliable and kind. This lends credibility to your projects. Lend your voice and amplify others. Be yourself consistently and advocate for others, always.
    10. Confidence – Don't be timid in what you have to say BUT be perfectly fine with saying something that the guest later corrects. You're NOT the smartest person in the room. It's OK just to be a person in the room.
    11. Production awareness – Know how to ensure everything is set to produce a good presentation/blog/talk/video/sample (font size, mic, physical blocking, etc.) Always do tech checks. Always.

    These are just a few tips but they've always served me well. We've done 450 episodes of Azure Friday and I've done nearly 650 episodes of the Hanselminutes Tech Podcast. Please Subscribe!

              Cockroach: The Omnivorous Scavenger: Potential Misinterpretation of Postmortem Injuries      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageInterpretation of postmortem injuries, including their differentiation from those produced antemortem, may be difficult even for experienced forensic pathologists. A variety of animals or insects residing in the death environment may alter the appearance of the deceased. Dictyoptera blattaria (the cockroach) is common in the residential setting. Three cases of sudden and unexpected infant death are presented in which postmortem injuries inflicted by cockroaches initially raised concern of nonaccidental injury. The true nature of the lesions was not recognized by the people at the death scene and, in one case, observation of neck injuries raised suspicion of possible strangulation. In another, the lesions were thought to be burns of different ages. Cockroaches are omnivorous scavengers that devour keratin. They will bite human flesh in both the living and dead with resultant injury. Recognition of cockroach bites will help in the evaluation of injuries discovered during child death investigations.
              The Catechol-O-Methyl Transferase Val158Met Polymorphism and Susceptibility to Cannabis Dependence      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageCannabis stimulates dopamine release and activates dopaminergic reward neurons in central pathways that lead to enhanced dependence. Catechol-O-methyl transferase (COMT) inactivates amplified extraneuronally released dopamine. A functional polymorphism (COMT Val158Met) resulting in increased enzyme activity has been associated with polysubstance abuse and addiction to heroin and methamphetamine. The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between the COMT Val158Met polymorphism and use of cannabis. Fifty-five cannabis users and 75 normal controls were enrolled in this study. Polymerase chain reaction-based genotyping was used to evaluate the presence of COMT gene polymorphism. There was a difference in genotype frequencies between cannabis users and controls, including the distribution of the COMT genotypes (H/H, H/L) (P < 0.001) and alleles (H, L) (P < 0.01), when comparing the patient groups and the control individuals. However, LL genotype distribution was similar between the groups. These results suggest a significant association between COMT Val158Met polymorphism and susceptibility to cannabis dependence.
              Autopsy Case of a Penetrating Wound to the Left Cerebral Hemisphere Caused by an Accidental Shooting With a Crossbow      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageA crossbow is a bow that shoots an arrow when a gun-like trigger is pulled. Deaths caused by accidental crossbow shootings are extremely rare. Here we describe an autopsy case of a penetrating wound to the left cerebral hemisphere caused by an accidental shooting with a crossbow. A man in his early 60s who lived with his wife and had used crossbows for 20 years as his hobby was found one early morning in the shed of his house, collapsed and bleeding from the head and neck. He was taken to a hospital and died after approximately 3 days of conservative treatment. At autopsy, a penetrating wound between the upper part of the left anterior neck and the left frontoparietal region was evident. Traumatic intracerebral hematoma was observed in the left frontal lobe, and severe traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage was present throughout the brain. Cerebral contusion and hematoma without any organization were noted around the penetration. The cause of death was determined to be cerebral contusion and intracerebral hematoma due to the penetrating wound by the crossbow arrow. He was probably trying to load an arrow into the crossbow by placing it on the floor, pointing upward, and made a mistake in its operation that resulted in the shooting of the arrow. This case is unique because it was a rare accidental death caused by a crossbow arrow, and a detailed histopathological examination was performed.

              New Azure #CosmosDB JavaScript SDK 2.0 now in public preview      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    The Azure Cosmos DB team is excited to announce version 2.0 RC of the JavaScript SDK for SQL API, now in public preview!

    We are excited to get feedback through this RC before general availability, so please try it out and let us know what you think. You can get the latest version through npm with:

    npm install azure cosmos

    What is Azure Cosmos DB?

    Azure Cosmos DB is a globally distributed, multi-model database service. It offers turnkey global distribution, guarantees single-digit millisecond latencies at the 99th percentile, and elastic scaling of throughput and storage.

    For the SQL API, we support a JavaScript SDK to enable development against Azure Cosmos DB from JavaScript and Node.js projects. Version 2.0 of the SDK is written completely in TypeScript, and we’ve redesigned the object model and added support for promises. Let’s dive into these updates.

    New object model

    Based on user feedback, we’ve redesigned the object model to make it easier to interact with and perform operations against Cosmos DB. 

    If you’re familiar with the previous version of the JavaScript SDK, you’ve likely noticed that the entire API surface hangs off DocumentDBClient. While the previous design makes it easy to find the entry point for methods, it also came at the cost of a cluttered IntelliSense experience, as seen below.

    DocumentDBClient

    We also got feedback that it was difficult to do operations off databases, collections, or documents since each method needed to reference the URL of that resource. 

    To address this, we’ve created a new top level CosmosClient class to replace DocumentDBClient, and split up its methods into modular Database, Container, and Items classes.

    For example, in the new SDK, you can create a new database, container, and add an item to it, all in 10 lines of code!

    Create a new database

    This is called a “builder” pattern, and it allows us to reference resources based on the resource hierarchy of Cosmos DB, which is similar to the way your brain thinks about Cosmos DB. For example, to create an item, we first reference its database and container, and call items.create().

    Containers and Items

    In addition, because Cosmos DB supports multiple API models, we’ve introduced the concepts of Container and Item into the SDK, which replace the previous Collection and Document concepts. In other words, what was previously known as a “Collection” is now called a “Container.”

    An account can have one or more databases, and a database consists of one or more containers. Depending on the API, the container is projected as either a collection (SQL or Mongo API), graph (Gremlin API), or table (Tables API).

    Container and Items

    Support for promises

    Finally, we’ve added full support for promises so you no longer have write custom code to wrap the SDK yourself. Now, you can use async/await directly against the SDK.

    To see the difference, to create a new database, collection, and add a document in the previous SDK, you would have to do something like this:

    SDK

    In the new SDK, you can simply await the calls to Cosmos DB directly from inside an async function, as seen below.

    We’ve also added a convenience method createIfNotExists() for databases and containers, which wraps the logic to read the database, check the status code, and create it if it doesn’t exist.

    Here’s the same functionality, using the new SDK:

    promisesNewImageUseThisOne

    Open source model

    The Azure Cosmos DB JavaScript SDK is open source, and our team is planning to do all development in the open. To that end, we will be logging issues, tracking feedback, and accepting PR’s in GitHub.

    Getting started

    We hope this new SDK makes for a better developer experience. To get started, check out our quick start guide. We’d love to hear your feedback! Email cosmosdbsdkfeedback@microsoft.com or log issues in our GitHub repo.

    npm install azure cosmos

              Horrors of Using Azure Kubernetes Service in Production      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) was recently marked as GA. We decided to move our production workload to it last month. Following is an account of what its really like to use it in production.

    1. Random DNS failures

    We started seeing random DNS failures right away, both for domains outside azure (eg sqs.us-east-1.amazonaws.com ) and even for hostnames inside the Azure Virtual Network. While they would resolve eventually after multiple retries, it was surprising that a fundamental feature like DNS would be broken.

    Azure Support told us that resolution of DNS names that point outside of Azure was not their problem (which is surprising, since that is what DNS is for ). They would only work on DNS failures for hostnames inside Azure.

    Azure resolved the issue by blaming CPU/Memory usage. We were told not to use too much CPU/Memory if we wanted the DNS to work reliably!

    Apart from the ridiculousness of this resolution, they ignored our response when we told them the issue mostly surfaces duing application startup when cpu/memory usage is minimal.

    2. Required daily reboot of Kubernetes API Server

    After a few days we noticed that we could no longer launch Kubernetes Dashboard. After going through a harrowing time of dealing with multiple azure support personnel, this issue was resolved to be valid and the only resolution was to reboot the Kubernetes API Server. Since the API Server is managed by Azure, this meant opening a support ticket, escalating it to engineering, and then asking them to reboot it.

    This problem would resurface daily, so we had to open a ticket every single day and escalate it to get the API Server rebooted.

    I had to document this procedure in an email to Azure Support so they could escalate the daily tickets without asking too many questions over and over again.

    3. Container crash would bring down entire node

    If a docker image would crash, it would bring down the entire underlying VM. The only way to recover would be to login to the Azure portal and manually reboot the vm.

    The resolution by Azure Support: "Yeah this is your problem. Just make sure your containers never crash".

    This is what its like to use @Azure Kubernetes in production. Every day since the last week pic.twitter.com/BLxn5EwkW4

    ― Prashant Deva (@pdeva) July 13, 2018 4. Unrecoverable cluster crash

    One day I woke up to find every single node in the Kubernetes cluster was down! Rebooting the nodes from Azure portal did nothing.

    Azure support tried to bring the cluster back up, but the nodes would keep going down regardless. Eventually after > 8 hrs, they finally brought the cluster back up, but we could no longer run any containers on it! From that point on, our containers wouldnt even start, the error message would point to some Golang code (our application is in Java). Yet Azure support blamed it as 'issue on your end' and closed the ticket.


    Horrors of Using Azure Kubernetes Service in Production

    We now sat with a cluster we couldn't deploy containers on, but which Azure considered fine.

    5. SLA violation ignored

    Even though there is no SLA for AKS, the individual VM nodes do have to abide by the 99.9% SLA of Azure. Since the VMs were down for many, many hours we opened a ticket to claim SLA on it, and Azure simply ignored it! It remains open and ignored weeks later.

    Conclusion

    Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) is alpha product marked as GA by Microsoft.

    Azure Support has been the worst support experience of my life. Not only were our P1 tickets (with <1hr response time) answered after >24 hours, the resolution of the tickets were laughable. Ignoring the SLA violation is downright fradulent behavior.

    We have finally moved to Google Cloud which has the best Kubernetes implementation out there.

    One of the projects I’m involved with at Pluralsight is our Skill IQ program. Each Skill IQ test is a short, adaptive test driven by a pretty impressive set of under-the-hood algorithms. Adaptive testing is cool in that it lets the test engine ask you a pretty small number of questions (usually a couple dozen), from which it can infer a lot about your level of expertise.

    A necessary part of that engine, however, is a “training” period, wherein we need a lot of folks to take the tests so that the engine can start drawing correlations, toss out “bad” questions, and so on. Thus, this blog post!

    We’ve got a pile of Azure-related Skill IQ tests currently in “validation mode,” and we’d like to invite you to take ’em!

    The official messaging:

    Pluralsight needs your help in calibrating their new Skill IQs (skill assessments) that will be announced at Microsoft Ignite and Pluralsight LIVE. The assessments are currently in beta and need assessment takers with knowledge in the topical areas below to help calibrate the Skill IQs.

    If you don’t already have a free Pluralsight account, you can create one here by clicking on the orange “Register and start for FREE” button.

    This should only take about 10 minutes of your time and you only need to answer around 20 multiple choice questions per assessment.As these assessment questions are in beta, you may have some feedback on them. All feedback should be submitted via the “Give feedback” button in the bottom left corner of each question.

    You’re more than welcome to leave feedback as indicated! It’s kind of a fun way, even with the tests in “beta,” to see how broad and deep your Azure knowledge is.


              Ethereum Proof-of-Authority on Azure      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    We’ve had great traction with our support of Ethereum on Azure. The existing Proof-of-Work solution has been deployed tens of thousands of times across a variety of industry verticals. Through the extensive development on our platform, we’ve received great feedback from the community that has helped us shape our next Ethereum ledger product. I’m excited to announce the release of Ethereum Proof-of-Authority on Azure .

    Proof-of-Authority

    Proof-of-Work is a Sybil-resistance mechanism that leverages computation costs to self-regulate the network and allow fair participation. This works great in anonymous, open networks where competition for cryptocurrency promotes security on the network. However, in private/consortium networks the underlying ether has no value. An alternative protocol, Proof-of-Authority, is more suitable for permissioned networks where all consensus participants are known and reputable. Without the need for mining, Proof-of-Authority is more efficient while still retaining Byzantine fault tolerance.

    Enterprise-ready

    We’ve built this solution with the same principles that we drive in all our production services at Microsoft. In Proof-of-Authority, each consensus node on the network has its own Ethereum identity. In the case that a node goes down, it’s important that the member doesn’t lose consensus participation. Ideally, each member would run redundant consensus nodes to ensure a highly available network presence. To accomplish this, we’ve built an abstraction which allows each consensus participant to delegate multiple nodes to run on their behalf. Each Azure Proof-of-Authority network comes with our identity leasing system that ensures that no two nodes carry the same identity. In the case of a VM or regional outage, new nodes can quickly spin up and resume the previous nodes’ identities.

    Web Assembly Smart Contracts

    Enterprise developers often cite Solidity language as one of the largest pain points when developing on Ethereum. To address this, we’ve enabled Parity’s web-assembly support, allowing developers to author smart contracts in familiar languages such as C, C++, and Rust.

    Azure Monitor

    This solution also comes with Azure Monitor to track node and network statistics. For application developers, this provides visibility into the underlying blockchain to track block generation statistics. Network operators can use Azure Monitor to quickly detect and prevent network outages through infrastructure statistics and queryable logs.


    Ethereum Proof-of-Authority on Azure
    Extensible governance

    Many of our customers want to participate in a consortium, but don’t want to manage the network infrastructure. We’ve leveraged Parity’s highly extensible Proof-of-Authority client to build a level of abstraction that allows our users to separate consortium governance from network operation. Each consortium member has the power to govern the network and can optionally delegate the consensus participation to the operator of their choosing. The Proof-of-Authority deployment comes with a Governance DApp to simplify voting and validator delegation. With this solution, each consortium member has custody over his or her own keys, allowing secure signing to be performed in the wallet of preference, for example, MetaMask in-browser wallet, Ledger hardware wallet, or Azure Key Vault with ECC signing.

    Governance DApp features Decentralized governance - Changes in network authorities are administered through on-chain voting by select administrators. Validator delegation - Authorities can manage their validator nodes that are setup in each PoA deployment. Auditable change history - Each change is recorded on the blockchain, providing transparency and auditability.

              Dynamic Partitioning in Azure Analysis Services (tabular)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Objective The real-life requirement

    Disclaimer: I assume dear Reader, that you are more than familiar with the general concept of partitioning and star schema modeling. The intended audience is people who used to be called BI developers in the past ( with a good amount of experience ), but they have all sorts of different titles nowadays that I can’t keep up with… I won’t provide a full Visual Studio solution that you can download and just run without any changes or configuration, but I will give you code can be used after parameterizing according to your own environment.

    So, with that out of the way, let’s start with some nostalgia: who wouldn’t remember all the nice and challenging partitioning exercises for OLAP cubes? If you had a huge fact table with hundreds of millions of rows it was at least not an efficient option to do a full process on the measure group every time, but more often it was out of the question.

    In this example, I have a fact table with 500M+ rows that is updated hourly and I created monthly partitions. It is a neat solution and the actual processing takes about 3-4 minutes every hour, mostly because some big degenerate dimensions I couldn’t push out of scope. The actual measure group processing is usually 1-2 minutes and mostly involves 1-3 partitions.

    I know OLAP is not dead (so it is said) but not really alive either. One thing is for sure: it is not available as PaaS (Platform as a Service) in Azure. So, if you want SSAS in the Cloud, that’s tabular . I assume migration/redesign from on-premise OLAP Cubes to Azure Tabular models is not uncommon. In the case of a huge table with an implemented partitioning solution, that should be ported as well.

    Where Visual Studio provided a decent GUI for partitioning in the OLAP world, it’s not the case for tabular. It feels like a beta development environment that has been mostly abandoned because the focus has been shifted to other products ( guesses are welcome, I’d say it’s Power BI but I often find the Microsoft roadmap confusing especially with how intensely Azure is extending and gaining an ever growing chunk in Microsoft’s income ).

    In short: let’s move that dynamic partitioning solution from OLAP into Azure Tabular!

    Goal

    The partitioning solution should accommodate the following requirements:

    Based on a configuration table handle different granularity for partitions (monthly, annual, …) Identify currently existing partitions Create a list of required partitions (this is mostly used at initialization) Compare existing and required partitions: create / delete if needed Based on the new set of data (e.g. in a staging table) update/process the relevant partitions Keep logs of what should happen and what actually happens The process of Dynamic Partitioning
    Dynamic Partitioning in Azure Analysis Services (tabular)
    Used technology

    My solution consists of the below components:

    SQL Server tables and stored procedures SSIS to orchestrate the process Scripting (two options to choose from)

    C# scripts inside SSIS utilizing TOM (Tabular Object Model) used in this solution

    No, the second one is not Jerry I am not sure the two methods would get on well in that cat-mouse relationship…

    PowerShell using the Tabular Model Scripting Language (TMSL) where the objects are defined using JSON format Azure Analysis Services (secure connections to it)

    Let’s get to it, going through the steps from the diagram one-by-one!

    Dynamic Tabular Partitioning Overview

    The below objects are used in the solution.

    Object name Type Functionality ETL_Tabular_Partition_Config Table Stores metadata for partitions that are used when defining the new ones ETL_Tabular_Partition_Grain_Mapping Table A simple mapping table between conceptual partition periods (e.g. Fiscal Month) and the corresponding Dim_Date column (e.g. Fiscal_Month_Code), this allows to tune partitioning periods dynamically Dim_Date Table A fairly standard, pre-populated date table ETL_Tabular_Partitions_Required Table The master list of changes for partitions, including all that needs to be created / deleted / processed (updated) pr_InsertTabularPartitionsRequired Stored procedure That’s the heart of the SQL side of dynamic partitioning (details below) ETL_Tabular_Partitions_Existing Table A simple list of partitions that currently exist in the deployed database pr_InsertTabularPartitionsExisting Stored procedure A simple procedure that inserts a row into ETL_Tabular_Partitions_Existing and is called from a C# enumerator that loops through the existing partitions of the tabular database Tabular_Partition.dtsx SSIS package This SSIS package is used as an orchestration of the different components of the project. In this 1 st step the pr_InsertTabularPartitionsRequired stored procedure is called Date configuration

    For the date configuration, I use the ETL_Tabular_Partition_Config, the ETL_Tabular_Partition_Grain_Mapping and the Dim_Date table. A simplified version for demo purposes:


    Dynamic Partitioning in Azure Analysis Services (tabular)
    ETL_Tabular_Partition_Config This contains one row for each table in a tabular database assuming that only partitioning period is required (e.g. monthly), this can be further enhanced if needed Tabular_Database_Name and Table_Name are used to identify the objects on the server Partition_Name_Prefix is used in the naming of the partitions (e.g. Internet Sales FY) Source_Object fact table/view (used as the source of the tabular table) Partitioning_Column the column in the source object that is the basis of partitioning (e.g. Transaction_Date_SK) Stage_Table / Stage_Column these are needed to identify the data range of the incremental dataset that is waiting to be pushed into the fact object from staging Partition_Grain the key piece in this exercise to define the periodicity of the partitioning process (e.g. Fiscal Month) Partition_Start_Date_SK / Partition_End_Date_SK used as parameters to calculate the boundary for the list of partitions Partition_Start_Date / Partition_End_Date calculated columns in the table as when it comes to dates it often helps to have them in surrogate key and in date format, too (the SK integer values are always unambiguous whereas the date values can be used in T-SQL date functions (e.g. EOMONTH or DATEADD) if needed) ETL_Tabular_Partition_Grain_Mapping To find out how your conceptual partition grain (e.g. Fiscal Month) can be mapped to Dim_Date, i.e. what column in Dim_Date means that Partition_Grain is often a user-friendly name where Partitioning_Dim_Date_Column is mor

    Sinopse: Vinte anos depois, a cidade de Vitoria volta a ser assolada por uma série de assassinatos macabros. São em tudo iguais aos crimes do passado. Mas há um pequeno senão: o suposto assassino está preso. 

    Na altura a imprensa chamou-lhes Os Crimes do Dólmen. Porque foi num dólmen que encontraram as primeiras vítimas: dois recém-nascidos unidos num abraço macabro. Seguiram-se várias outras mortes, encenadas com requinte em monumentos históricos. Tinham sido crimes quase perfeitos. Mas o assassino – um arqueólogo brilhante – acabou por ser apanhado, pelo seu não menos brilhante irmão gémeo, então inspetor da polícia. Caso encerrado. Ou talvez não. Na altura Unai era adolescente. Vivia obcecado com os crimes, mas aterrorizado com a perspetiva de ser a próxima vítima. Passados vinte anos, tornou-se um profiler implacável, especializado em assassinos em série. E quando o chamam à Catedral Velha de Vitoria, um calafrio percorre-o. Nos claustros encontra dois cadáveres e a mesma arrepiante encenação: nus, abraçados, com abelhas vivas na garganta… Mas pistas, nenhumas.

    Unai, dá início à caçada. E as suas investigações levam-no a mergulhar a fundo na história da cidade, nos seus antiquíssimos mitos, lendas, segredos. Thriller arrepiante, que vendeu meio milhão de exemplares em Espanha, envolve o leitor numa cidade fascinante, Vitoria, que já tinha servido de cenário e inspiração a Os Pilares da Terra, de Ken Follet.

     

    Opinião: Nem sempre uma capa consegue representar o que está no seu interior, mas com O Silêncio da Cidade Branca primeiramente fui conquistado pela imagem que me remeteu para uma sinopse que conquistou. Já com esta obra em espera na mesa-de-cabeceira foram poucos os dias em que resisti e assim que a comecei a ler percebi que tudo estava perfeito nesta criação de Eva G. Sáenz de Urturi. 

    Um thriller romanceado com uma história espetacular onde a conjugação entre personagens e narração existe de modo perfeito. Nada parece falhar a partir do momento em que Unai é apresentado na primeira pessoa com conhecimento de causa sobre quem é e como tudo foi acontecendo na sua vida para chegar ao presente de forma a ter pela frente uma situação que já dura há mais de vinte anos e que volta a atormentar a sociedade quando tudo parecia estar esclarecido.

    Olhando para o caminho que vai percorrendo com a sua equipa de investigação ao mesmo tempo que é contado um passado que explica o final de toda a história, Unai é a personagem perfeita desta criativa narrativa que se desenvolve pela cidade de Vitoria, em Espanha. O leitor além de poder conhecer Vitoria, é conduzido ao mesmo tempo numa investigação confusa e onde o verdadeiro suspeito se encontra longe de ser descoberto pelos mais perspicazes leitores deste estilo de enredos. A autora brinca com todas as teorias relatadas em quase quinhentas páginas onde o ritmo não falha em algum momento, mostrando grande capacidade criativa onde não são encontrados erros descritivos e sem lógica, levando tudo a encaixar de forma tão perfeita e com boas explicações que no final o que senti foi mesmo que fui completamente enganado e cai como um patinho na história de um assassino em série sem escrúpulos. 

    Resumindo, O Silêncio da Cidade Branca é um livro tão consistente que prende do início ao fim sem cansar, fascinando e envolvendo de tal maneira que a intenção é mesmo continuar para que se perceba afinal quem está por detrás de todos os crimes praticados. Ao mesmo tempo que o mal na cidade acontece, um romance surge, mas por aqui e como outros pontos desta história, este volume é somente o primeiro de uma trilogia que já tem sucesso estampado no nome. 

    Recomendo totalmente a leitura de O Silêncio da Cidade Branca, um livro que vos vai deixar rendidos e em espera para que venha a sua continuação o mais rapidamente possível. Perfeito!

              DXY Technical Analysis: Constructive outlook persists above the support line at 94.40      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    • The greenback has returned to the positive territory in the second half of the week, always managing well to keep business above the psychological 95.00 handle.
    • Prospects for further upside remain intact while above the short-term support line, today around 94.40. This idea is reinforced as long as DXY trades above the daily cloud.
    • If we look to the opposite direction, sellers met a strong hurdle in the 95.00 neighbourhood so far. In addition, the 10-day SMA at 94.93 also adds strength to this area of contention.
    • A breakout of the critical 95.50 level should pave the way for a test of YTD peaks in the 95.60/65 band ahead of the 50% Fibo retracement of the 2017-2018 drop at 96.04.

    GBP/USD now looks to 1.2811

    The ongoing bearish scenario around the Sterling forced Cable to print fresh 2018 lows in levels last seen around a year ago in the 1.2860 region. The down move yesterday was accompanied by increasing open interest and volume, a bearish sign that leaves intact the possibility of a test of July 2017 low at 1.2811 in the near term.

              Security Features missing from Office 365      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Office 365 is a great platform of choice for any collaboration and sharing that you may need as an organization. Over the years Microsoft has added great Security features to help in protecting Office 365. These features cover everything from Authentication, Content Protection; Email controls all the way to Security and Advanced Threat Protection. These services are great, but most require initial setup, configuration as well as purchasing of extra licenses.

    Over the past year, I have spent time using the security tools to find out what is missing. Honestly apart from some very specifics, the Security tools that Microsoft have implemented within Office 365 honestly do the job and do it well.

    What are Security areas covered within Office 365?

    Microsoft released a document a while back called “ Assessing Microsoft 365 Security Solutions using the NIST Cybersecurity Framework “, this can be downloaded using the link below:

    http://download.microsoft.com/download/9/F/7/9F7991F2-759E-4C95-A97F-D42EF9E7CC8D/Microsoft_365_and_NIST_CSF_EN_US.pdf

    The NIST Framework outlined in the document, consists of five concurrent and continuous functions: Identify , Protect , Detect , Respond , and Recover . When considered together, these functions provide a high-level, strategic view of the lifecycle of an organization’s management of cybersecurity risk.

    The Framework outlines functions and categories that need consideration for any platform that provides services such as Microsoft 365. Some of the information below is directly from the Microsoft document itself.

    Function Categories Identify Asset Management Business Environment Governance Risk Assessment Risk Management Strategy Supply Chain Risk Management Protect Identity Management and Access Control Awareness and Training Data Security Protective Technology Information Protection Processes and Procedures Maintenance Detect Anomalies and Events Security Continuous Monitoring Detection Processes Respond Response Planning Communications Analysis Mitigation Improvements

    Within each category, tools are available that help you as an organization not only meet the NIST requirements but better control and protect your data. Each category is outlined below with the Microsoft tools to assist in protection.

    Identify: “ Develop the organizational understanding to manage cybersecurity risk to systems, assets, data, and capabilities. “

    Microsoft 365 provides fundamental and base identity user management that includes Application Access Control , Single Sign-on , Device Management and Control . To add to this, Azure AD Connect can be used to integrate On-premises user directories directly with Azure Active Directory, creating a seamless link between both On-premises and Cloud.

    Protect: “ Develop and implement the appropriate safeguards to ensure delivery of critical infrastructure services. “

    Microsoft 365 provides controls for limiting authorization to its services through devices, activities, and actions. Primary protection is Azure Active Directory Conditional Access rules. This component evaluates sets of configurable conditions, such as user, device, the application as well as an associated risk. Based on this evaluation, the correct level of access is assigned.

    Detect: “ Develop and implement the appropriate activities to identify the occurrence of a cybersecurity event. “

    Protecting against an actual malicious attack or data breach is a fundamental worry for any organization. Microsoft 365 protects real-time anomalies and events. Using a combination of tools allows for better control and protection. Advanced Threat Protection provides security and audit log management, application whitelisting, as well as policies to control the flow of traffic and data. For device-based attacks, Microsoft provides windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection , providing almost instant blocking of new and emerging threats. Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection protects email, attachments, online storage, files, as well as providing services for safe attachments and links. Azure Advanced Threat Protection combines information from logs and network events to learn the behavior of users within the organization, building a behavioral profile of normal use. Anormal or suspicious activities can then be detected easily.

    Response: “ Response processes and procedures are executed and maintained to ensure timely response to detected cybersecurity events. “

    Azure Active Directory Access Usage Reportsallow you to view and asses the overall integrity and security of your organizations Azure Active Directory . Other reports provided are Anomaly , Integrated Application , Error , User-specific and Activity reports.

    What is missing then?

    For most of the functions that organizations and end users will perform, the tools are all here. However, based on the Cyber Research Project I was involved in earlier this year, most organizations do not enable the required features, either because they don’t know about them or due to cost. You can download the report using the following link:

    https://rencore.com/blog/cyber-security-report-understanding-microsoft-cloud-services-and-security/

    There is a single area though, that does not have any types of general protections. It is customizations mostly within the SharePoint, OneDrive, Office 365 Groups and Teams services. One of the most powerful features of Office 365, is the extensibility within each component. SharePoint Online, for example, allows full solutions to be developed and deployed easily. These customizations could be simple javascript, Add-ins, or even the new SharePoint Framework. Either way, there are no provisions within the Security Tools of Microsoft 365 for controlling and inspecting them.

    A second area that is missing is proactive monitoring for configuration changes. There is plenty of monitoring of activities and actions performed within each tool and by each user, however, no monitoring for changes such as a configuration that may have happened. The Secure Score does provide a way to see some of this but has to manually run, then be checked within the Secure Score site to see any changes.

    Are there tools available to fill the gap?

    Luckily there is a tool available that can help to fill the gap not only of customization inspection but also provide proactive monitoring notifications. It is a product created by the team over at Rencore. It is called Analysis Cloud. In a nutshell, Analysis Cloud provides four key areas of protection and control.

    Automatics Environment Configuration Scanning and Monitoring

    Scan the current Office 365 Tenant, checking for potential configuration issues, or violations based on defined rules. Proactively scan and be notified for changes or further violations.


    Security Features missing from Office 365
    Automatic Deprecation and Security Policy Checks

    Be notified of potential features that have or are being deprecated, as well as checking common Security configuration settings.


    Security Features missing from Office 365
    Proactive Security/Policy rules based notifications and alerts

    Be actively notified of violations or security risks. Set core reminders on potential violations to help with remedial action.


    Security Features missing from Office 365
    Application and Customization Governance and Monitoring

    Find all customizations deployed to SharePoint Online. Inspect the contents of the code validating the code against industry validated best practice rules, as well as look for the suspicious or malicious code. Be actively notified of changes made to the customizations.


    Security Features missing from Office 365
    Yeah, Yeah, making me get another tool. Do I need it?

    Don’t trust me; well do trust me, just kidding.

    The first question I would ask yourself is: Do I know where all the customizations are within my Office 365 Tenant? Do I know how many Script Editor web parts are on the site? Do I know where custom JavaScript is on pages? Do I know who made configuration changes last? Is my Tenant configured for the best Security? Do I know what the code is doing on my site?

    If you answer “ NO ” to any of these questions, then you NEED to head over to the link below and request a trial of Analysis Cloud. Get a Risk Assessment completed, which will outline some of this information for you.

    If you missed our initial issue of the DC Chronicles,check it out here. The Chronicles are intended to keep you updated on DevCentral happenings and highlight some of the cool articles you may have missed over the last month. Welcome.


    The DevCentral Chronicles Volume 1, Issue 2
    First up, 2018 will be the year that we publicly open up speaking proposals for ourAgility conference this August. Historically, the presenters have been F5 employees or partners but this year, we’d love if you wanted to share your BIG-IP expertise, knowledge and mad-skillz to the greater F5 community.Review the info here and submit your proposal by Friday, Feb 9.
    The DevCentral Chronicles Volume 1, Issue 2
    Next up is our exciting new (and FREE!) Super-NetOps training program . The Super-NetOps curriculum teaches BIG-IP administrators how to standardize services and provide them through automation tool chains. For Network Operations Engineers you can learn new skills, improve collaboration and advance your career. For Network Managers and Architects, you can support digital transformation and improve operational practices. AsJason Rahm notes with his Lightboard Lessons: Why Super-NetOps , Super-NetOps is not a technology but an evolutionary journey. Already featuring two complete classes on integrating NetOps expertise into the benefits of a DevOps world, this training program is poised to help the NetOps professional take a well-deserved seat at the continuous deployment table. I’ve taken the training and it is amazing.

    Speaking of Lightboard Lessons ,John Wagnon is going through the OWASP TOP 10 in his latest series and is already on number 5 of the list, Lightboard Lessons: OWASP Top 10 - Broken Access Control . The OWASP Top 10 is a list of the most common security risks on the Internet today and John has been lighting up each in some cool videos. If you want to learn about the OWASP TOP 10, start here and follow along.

    Interested in BIG-IP security? Then check outChase Abbot’s Security Hardening F5's BIG-IP with SElinux . When a major release hits the street, documentation and digital press tends to focus on new or improved user features, seldom do underlying platform changes make the spotlight. Each BIG-IP release have plenty new customer-centric features but one unsung massive update is SELinux’s extensive enforcing mode policy across the architecture. Chase says that, BIG-IP and SELinux are no strangers, having coexisted since 2009, but comparing our original efforts to our current SELinux implementation is akin to having your kid's youth soccer team shoot penalties against David Seaman . Good one.

    Also filed under security for this edition is the Meltdown and Spectre Web Application Risk Management article byNir Zigler. Nir talks about a simple setting that can reduce the attack surface with the “SameSite” Cookie Attribute. If you’re worried about those vulnerabilities, this is your article.


    The DevCentral Chronicles Volume 1, Issue 2
    This week, I’ll be at the F5 AFCEA West Tech Day on Wednesday Feb. 7 as part of the AFCEA West 2018 Conference in San Diego. A full day of technical sessions covering the challenges of DoD cloud adoption with a fun Capture the Flag challenge. Our friends at Microsoft Azure will also talk about solutions to address the complex requirements of a secure cloud computing architecture. There is a great article over on MSDN explaining how to Secure IaaS workloads for Department of Defense with Microsoft and F5. #whereisdevcentral

    Lastly, don’t forget to check out our Featured Member for February , Lee Sutcliffe, Lori’s take on #SOAD The State of Application Delivery 2018: Automation is Everywhere and the new F5 Editor Eclipse Plugin v2 which allows you to use the Eclipse IDE to manage iRules, iRules LX, iControl LX, and iApps LX development.

              Lower Corneal Hysteresis is Associated With More Rapid Glaucomatous Visual Field Progression      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageAim We investigated the correlation between central corneal thickness (CCT) and corneal hysteresis (CH) and their relationship with the rate of visual field (VF) change. Methods Glaucoma patients who underwent complete ophthalmic examination and tonometry using both the Goldmann applanation tonometer and the Ocular Response Analyzer were prospectively enrolled. Only eyes with ≥5 SITA Standard 24-2 VF tests were included. Automated pointwise linear regression analysis was used to determine VF progression. One hundred fifty-three eyes (153 patients; mean age, 61.3±14.0 y; mean number of VF, 8.5±3.4; mean follow-up time, 5.3±2.0 y) met the enrollment criteria. Results The mean global rate of VF change was −0.34±0.7 dB/y. Twenty-five eyes (16%) reached a progression endpoint. Progressing eyes had lower CCT (525.0±34.2 vs 542.3±38.5 μm, P=0.04) and lower CH (7.5±1.4 vs 9.0±1.8 mm Hg, P<0.01) compared with nonprogressing eyes. CH and CCT correlated significantly (r=0.33, P<0.01). By multivariate analysis, peak intraocular pressure [odds ratio (OR)=1.13 per mm Hg higher, P<0.01], age (OR=1.57 per decade older, P=0.03), and CH (OR=1.55 per mm Hg lower, P<0.01) remained statistically significant. Conclusions Corneal biomechanical and physical properties, such as CH and CCT, are highly correlated and associated with VF progression. As CH may describe corneal properties more completely than thickness alone, it may be a parameter that is better associated with progression.

              Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction in Relation to Quality of Life, Mood, Symptoms of Stress, and Immune Parameters in Breast and Prostate Cancer Outpatients      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageObjectives: This study investigated the relationships between a mindfulness-based stress reduction meditation program for early stage breast and prostate cancer patients and quality of life, mood states, stress symptoms, lymphocyte counts, and cytokine production. Methods: Forty-nine patients with breast cancer and 10 with prostate cancer participated in an 8-week MBSR program that incorporated relaxation, meditation, gentle yoga, and daily home practice. Demographic and health behavior variables, quality of life (EORTC QLQ C-30), mood (POMS), stress (SOSI), and counts of NK, NKT, B, T total, T helper, and T cytotoxic cells, as well as NK and T cell production of TNF, IFN-γ, IL-4, and IL-10 were assessed pre- and postintervention. Results: Fifty-nine and 42 patients were assessed pre- and postintervention, respectively. Significant improvements were seen in overall quality of life, symptoms of stress, and sleep quality. Although there were no significant changes in the overall number of lymphocytes or cell subsets, T cell production of IL-4 increased and IFN-γ decreased, whereas NK cell production of IL-10 decreased. These results are consistent with a shift in immune profile from one associated with depressive symptoms to a more normal profile. Conclusions: MBSR participation was associated with enhanced quality of life and decreased stress symptoms in breast and prostate cancer patients. This study is also the first to show changes in cancer-related cytokine production associated with program participation.

              Minimally Invasive Surgery for Neuromuscular Scoliosis: Results and Complications in a Series of One Hundred Patients      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageStudy Design. A retrospective review. Objective. To report the results of an alternative technique using a minimally invasive fusionless surgery. The originality is based on the progressive correction of the deformities with proximal and distal fixation and on the reliability of the pelvic fixation using iliosacral screws on osteoporotic bones. Summary of Background Data. Spinal deformities are common in neuromuscular diseases. Conventional treatment involves bracing, followed by spinal instrumented fusion. Growing rod techniques are increasingly advocated but have a high rate of complications. Methods. The technique relies on a bilateral double rod sliding construct anchored proximally by four hooks claws and distally to the pelvis by iliosacral screws through a minimally invasive approach. Hundred patients with neuromuscular scoliosis underwent the same fusionless surgery extended from T1 to the pelvis. The average age at initial surgery was 11 + 6 years. Diagnoses included cerebral palsy (61), spinal muscular atrophy (22), muscular dystrophy (10), and other neurological etiologies (7). Cobb angle and pelvic obliquity were measured before and after initial surgery, and at final follow-up. Complications were reviewed. Results. At latest follow-up 3 + 9 years (range 2 yr–6 + 3 yr), the mean Cobb angle improved from 89° to 35° which corresponds to 61% correction. Mean pelvic obliquity improved from 29° to 5°, which corresponds to 83% correction. Mean T1-S1 length increased from 30.02 to 37.28 cm. Mean preoperative hyper kyphosis was reduced from 68.44° to 33.29°. Complications occurred in 26 patients including mechanical complications (12) and wound infections (16). No arthrodesis was required at last follow-up. Conclusion. This original fusionless technique is safe and effective, preserving spinal and thoracic growth. It provides a significant correction of spinal deformities and pelvic obliquity with a reduced complications rate. The strength and stability of this modular construct over time allow the avoidance of final arthrodesis. Level of Evidence: 4
              The Perioperative Efficacy and Safety of Antifibrinolytics in Adult Spinal Fusion Surgery: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageStudy Design. Systematic review and meta-analysis. Objective. Compare outcomes of adult patients undergoing spinal fusion surgery who receive and do not receive perioperative antifibrinolytics to reduce operative blood loss. Summary of Background Data. The clinical potential for antifibrinolytics such as tranexamic acid and epsilon aminocaproic acid to significantly reduce blood loss during adult spinal fusion surgery remains underexplored. Outcomes for assessment included operative blood loss, and other surgical, clinical, and haematological outcomes. Methods. We followed the recommended Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines for systematic reviews. Electronic database searches identified 2041 for screening. Data were extracted and analyzed using meta-analysis of proportions. Results. A total of 11 randomized controlled trials with a total of 937 adult spinal fusion surgery patients were included for analysis. There were 472 (50%) patients who were treated with antifibrinolytics, with 345 of 472 (73%) and 127 of 472 (27%) receiving tranexamic acid and epsilon aminocaproic acid respectively. The use of antifibrinolytics was associated with significantly lower intraoperative (MD −127.08 mL; P = 0.002) and total blood loss (MD −229.76 mL; P < 0.00001), as well as incidence of blood transfusion (OR 0.58; P = 0.04). There was no significant difference with antifibrinolytic use in terms of many surgical parameters, including surgery duration (P = 0.50), overall complications (P = 0.21), and length of stay (P = 0.88). Finally, postoperative haemoglobin was significantly greater (MD 0.30 g/dL; P = 0.02) following antifibrinolytic use, with other haematological parameters mostly unaffected. Conclusion. Based on the highest level comparative evidence available, the possibility for blood loss reduction in adult spinal fusion surgery with the use of perioperative antifibrinolytics is not unreasonable, as it appears both efficacious and safe. In addition to further, larger investigations to validate the associations found in this study, practical aspects such as cost-benefit analysis, and long-term follow-up will further enhance our understanding.

              Anterior or Posterior Approach of Full-Endoscopic Cervical Discectomy for Cervical Intervertebral Disc Herniation? A Comparative Cohort Study      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageStudy Design. This is a retrospective comparative cohort study. Objective. To compare the outcomes of patients with symptomatic cervical intervertebral disc herniation (CIVDH) treated with full-endoscopic cervical discectomy (FECD) using the anterior approach with those treated with the posterior approach. Summary of Background Data. The optimal FECD surgical approach for CIVDH remains controversial. Methods. From March 2010 to July 2012, a total of 84 consecutive patients with symptomatic single-level CIVDH who underwent FECD using the anterior approach (42 patients) or the posterior approach (42 patients) were enrolled. Patients were assessed neurologically before surgery and followed up at regular outpatient visits. The clinical outcomes were evaluated using the visual analogue scale and the modified MacNab criteria. Radiographical follow-up included the static and dynamic cervical plain radiographs, computed tomographic scans, and magnetic resonance images. Results. In both groups, shorter mean operative time (63.5 min vs. 78.5 min), increased mean volume of disc removal (0.6 g vs. 0.3 g), larger mean decrease in the final postoperative mean intervertebral vertical height (1.0 mm vs. 0.5 mm), and longer mean hospital stay (4.9 d vs. 4.5 d) were observed in the anterior full-endoscopic cervical discectomy group. Postoperatively, the clinical outcomes of the 2 approaches were significantly improved, but the differences between the 2 approaches were not significant (P = 0.211 and P = 0.257, respectively). Four surgery-related complications were observed among all enrolled patients (complications in each group were 2; overall 4 of 84, 4.8%). Conclusion. In our study, the clinical outcomes between the 2 approaches did not differ significantly. Nevertheless, posterior full-endoscopic cervical discectomy may be preferable when considering the volume of disc removal, length of hospital stay, and the postoperative radiographical changes. As an efficacious supplement to traditional open surgery, FECD is a reliable alternative treatment of CIVDH and its optimal approach remains open to discussion. Level of Evidence: 3

              The Influence of Radiotherapy on the Mechanical Properties of Silicone Breast Implants      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageBackground: Silicone breast implants have been used for decades for cosmetic breast augmentation or reconstruction after mastectomy. In selected cases, postmastectomy adjuvant radiotherapy is given with the breast implants in situ. Previous clinical studies have shown that radiotherapy may lead to complications such as capsular contracture and infection and that removal of the implant may be required. Yet, the effect of radiotherapy on silicone breast implants themselves is unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate if irradiation of breast implants influences their mechanical properties. Methods: This was an ex vivo study on 32 ready-to-use silicone breast implants (Mentor and Silimed). Half of the implants of each brand were irradiated with 1 × 60 Gy, the other half were not irradiated. Tensile, mechanical hysteresis, and rheology tests were performed. Differences in mechanical properties between the irradiated and nonirradiated implants were determined. Results: No significant differences were found in tensile strength, mechanical hysteresis, and rheological properties between irradiated and nonirradiated implants. Conclusions: Breast implants’ mechanical properties for these 2 brands were not significantly affected after single-dose irradiation in an ex vivo setting.
              Lateral Inframammary Approach for Asian Augmentation Mammaplasty      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageBackground: The inframammary fold (IMF) approach for augmentation mammaplasty is less popular in Asia. The incision was modified to lateral IMF(L-IMF) for easy access and better outcome. The aim of this study was to evaluate if L-IMF approach is feasible in Asian women. Methods: Between 2002 and 2016, 53 patients with 96 augmentation mammaplasties were performed using lateral (L-IMF, 31 cases, 56 breasts) and traditional IMF approaches (T-IMF, 22 cases, 40 breasts). Surgical outcome was compared between L-IMF and T-IMF groups. Scar was assessed using photographic images by 4 assessors with a modified Manchester Scar Score, and telephone surveys available in L-IMF group. Results: The average age was 41 ± 10.7 years (range, 20–73 years). There were no statistical differences in demographics in both groups besides of implant type (P < 0.01). At a follow-up of 80.1 months (range, 20–173 months), the capsular contracture rate and overall complication rate were statistically lower in L-IMF group, 3.6%, and 3.6%, than in T-IMF group, 15%, and 20% (P = 0.05, and P < 0.01, respectively). The modified Manchester Scar for L-IMF scars was 8.47 ± 2.4. The average score of 24 of 31 patients with L-IMF incision was 3.8 ± 0.96/5 points with patient-reported questionnaire. Nineteen patients (79.2%) would recommend or strongly recommend the procedure to friends. Conclusions: The scar of L-IMF group healed satisfactorily with lower capsular contracture and overall complication rates than T-IMF group. Patients were satisfied with the outcome of breast augmentation and scar appearance using L-IMF approach.
              Tissue Contraction—A New Paradigm in Breast Reconstruction      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageBackground: Skin expansion is commonly needed in order to reconstruct the breast following modified radical mastectomy. With the advent of skin-sparing and nipple-sparing techniques, expansion is no longer necessary. The natural ability of healing tissues to contract can be advantageously used to improve the outcomes of immediate prepectoral breast reconstruction. Methods: A prospective analysis of the results of 20 prepectoral breast reconstructions following skin-sparing or nipple-sparing mastectomies was performed. Reconstruction was performed using the adjustable breast implant initially underfilled with air. No acellular dermal matrix or mesh support was used. Further air was added during the follow-up office visits. Air was replaced with normal saline when the desired breast size was achieved. The adjustable implants were replaced with silicone gel implants when necessary. Results: Contraction of the skin flap over the underfilled implant was noticed in all patients. Five patients (25%) developed a seroma, and 2 patients had hematoma of the breast pocket. Wound-edge necrosis required debridement in 2 patients (10%). Complications were all resolved without implant loss. Conclusions: Tissue contraction can be successfully utilized in breast reconstruction following skin-sparing and nipple-sparing mastectomy. Contraction results in thickening and elevation of the flap, eliminating the need for skin excision or the use of acellular dermal matrix. The partially filled implant functions as a spacer, preventing the flap from adhering to the underlying muscle and avoiding pressure on the skin flap.
              Modification of the Melbourne Method for Total Calvarial Vault Remodeling      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageBackground: Sagittal synostosis is the most common form of single suture synostosis. It often results in characteristic calvarial deformities, including a long, narrow head, frontal bossing, a bullet-shaped occiput, and an anteriorly placed vertex. Several methods for correcting the phenotypic deformities have been described, each with their own advantages and challenges. In this study, we describe a modification of the Melbourne method of total calvarial remodeling for correcting scaphocephaly. Methods: We conducted a retrospective review of all consecutive patients who underwent total calvarial remodeling using a modified version of the Melbourne technique from 2011 to 2015. We evaluated clinical photographs, computed tomographic imaging, and cephalic indices both pre- and postoperatively to determine morphologic changes after operation. Results: A total of 9 patients underwent the modified Melbourne technique for calvarial vault remodeling during the study period. Intraoperative blood loss was 260 mL (range, 80–400 mL), and mean intraoperative transfusion was 232 mL (range, 0–360 mL). The average length of stay in the hospital was 3.9 days. The mean cephalic indices increased from 0.66 to 0.74 postoperatively (P < 0.01). Conclusions: A modified Melbourne method for calvarial vault reconstruction addresses the phenotypic aspects of severe scaphocephaly associated with isolated sagittal synostosis and maintains a homeotopic relationship across the calvaria. It is associated with shorter operative times, lower blood loss, and lower transfusion requirements.
              The Effects of Presurgical Nasoalveolar Molding on the Midface Symmetry of Children with Unilateral Cleft Lip and Palate: A Long-term Follow-up Study      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageBackground: Midface symmetry is an important indicator of success of complete unilateral cleft lip and palate (CUCLP) treatment. There is little literature on the long-term effects of presurgical nasoalveolar molding (PNAM) on midface symmetry in children treated for CUCLP. This study aimed to compare children with CUCLP who underwent PNAM before surgical interventions, children who did not receive PNAM, and age- and sex-matched controls in terms of midface symmetry. Methods: We evaluated 39 frontal facial photographs of 13 patients with CUCLP who underwent PNAM as part of the treatment (group 1: PNAM), 13 patient with CUCLP who did not undergo PNAM (group 2: no nasoalveolar molding), and 13 age- and sex-matched controls. The children were evaluated in their fifth year of life. Three midline and 3 bilateral orthopometric midface landmarks were programmed using a custom software (OnyxCeph3, Image Instruments GmbH, Germany), and corresponding linear measurements from the midline were obtained and compared between the groups using 1-way analysis of variance and Scheffe’s post hoc test. Results: Significant differences were observed between the control and CUCLP groups for the measurements of the proanasale, subnasale, and zygion. However, there were no significant differences between the PNAM and no nasoalveolar molding groups for the 6 midface landmarks. Conclusions: PNAM does not seem to significantly impact the long-term midface symmetry in children with CUCLP.
              Stress Distribution Patterns within Viscero- and Neurocranium during Nasoalveolar Molding: a Finite Element Analysis      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageBackground: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the stress distribution patterns within the viscero- and neurocranium of neonates during nasoalveolar molding. Methods: Finite element models of 3 different healthy neonates at different times of life (date of birth, 4 weeks, and 3.5 months) were generated on the basis of computed tomography scans. A validated workflow, including segmentation, meshing, setting of boundary conditions, and implementation of a bone density–dependent material model, was carried out for each model. A small and a large unilateral alveolar and hard palatal cleft were virtually cut in each model. The stress distribution pattern in each model was then analyzed by using Ansys APDL. Results: Convergence analysis validated the results. The virtual experiments at the date of birth showed a stress pattern above a previously defined threshold value of 30,000 Pa in the ipsilateral naso-orbital-complex, frontal sinus, and the anterior fossa of the base of the skull, with von Mises values > 35,000 Pa. Stress patterns at the age of 4 weeks and 3.5 months showed reduced von Mises values at < 15,000 Pa. Conclusions: Nasoalveolar molding therapy is a safe presurgical treatment modality without significant influence on the viscero- and neurocranium of neonates. Treatment, considering the stress distribution at the naso-orbital-complex and anterior fossa of the base of the skull, should begin in the second week of life, and treatment initiation of preterm infants should be adapted respectively.
              Ratio of Blood Glucose Level Change Measurement for Flap Monitoring      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageBackground: In a setting of flap congestion, early detection and rapid reexploration are important. Some studies described the efficacy of blood glucose measurement for flap monitoring.1 However, the sensitivity and specificity of this method were not high enough to determine whether reexploration should be done or not. The purpose of this study was to evaluate and establish a method using the ratio of blood glucose level change (RBGC) measurement for detecting venous thrombosis and to propose an algorithm for flap salvage after congestion. Methods: Blood glucose level was measured in 36 free tissue transfers over time postoperatively and RBGC was calculated. When flap congestion was suspected, frequent blood glucose measurement and some countermeasures were performed complying with an algorithm. If the venous thrombus was suspected, the reexploration was performed. The RBGCs at the points in time when the venous thrombosis was detected were compared with those at the points in time when the flap demonstrated no venous thrombosis. Results: Of the 36 flaps, 30 flaps demonstrated no venous thrombosis and 6 flaps demonstrated venous thrombosis. Four flaps demonstrated signs of congestion but improved after the reexploration. The mean RBGCs at the points in time when the venous thrombosis was detected was −7.61 mg/dl h and those at times when the flap demonstrated no venous thrombosis was 0.10 mg/dl h, the former being significantly lower than the latter. Conclusion: Using the flap monitoring method using RBGC measurement, we could salvage some flaps from the congestion due to the venous thrombosis without unnecessary reexploration.
              Enhanced Drug Delivery to the Skin Using Liposomes      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageBackground: Enhancing drug delivery to the skin has importance in many therapeutic strategies. In particular, the outcome in vascularized composite allotransplantation mainly depends on systemic immunosuppression to prevent and treat episodes of transplant rejection. However, the side effects of systemic immunosuppression may introduce substantial risk to the patient and are weighed against the expected benefits. Successful enhancement of delivery of immunosuppressive agents to the most immunogenic tissues would allow for a reduction in systemic doses, thereby minimizing side effects. Nanoparticle-assisted transport by low temperature–sensitive liposomes (LTSLs) has shown some benefit in anticancer therapy. Our goal was to test whether delivery of a marker agent to the skin could be selectively enhanced. Methods: In an in vivo model, LTSLs containing doxorubicin (dox) as a marker were administered intravenously to rats that were exposed locally to mild hyperthermia. Skin samples of the hyperthermia treated hind limb were compared with skin of the contralateral normothermia hind limb. Tissue content of dox was quantified both via high-performance liquid chromatography and via histology in skin and liver. Results: The concentration of dox in hyperthermia-treated skin was significantly elevated over both normothermic skin and liver. (P < 0.02). Conclusions: We show here that delivery of therapeutics to the skin can be targeted and enhanced using LTSLs. Targeting drug delivery with this method may reduce the systemic toxicity seen in a systemic free-drug administration. Development of more hydrophilic immunosuppressants in the future would increase the applicability of this system in the treatment of rejection reactions in vascularized composite allotransplantation. The treatment of other skin condition might be another potential application.
              Two-stage Reconstruction of the Large and Ptotic Breasts: Skin Reduction Mastectomy with Prepectoral Device Placement      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageSummary: Wise pattern skin reduction mastectomy with prepectoral placement of the device is a recent technique for reconstruction in patients with large and ptotic breasts. Expanders in the first stage, followed by implant exchange in the second stage are placed above the pectoralis major muscle, totally covered by acellular dermal matrix and an inferior dermal flap. This technique was performed on 6 breasts in 4 obese patients with macromastia and grade 2 and 3 ptosis. Two patients experienced complications at the T-junction. One patient experienced superficial skin sloughing managed conservatively. The second patient developed full-thickness necrosis treated with excision and primary closure. No implant loss occurred. All patients were exchanged in a second stage to an implant, and 2 of them had symmetry procedures, with good cosmetic results. Larger, long-term studies are required to further characterize results and define the limitations of this newer surgical technique.
              Bone Resorption after Use of Silicone Chin Implants, Long-term Follow-up Study with Lateral Chin Radiography      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageSummary: Silicone chin implants are frequently used in cosmetic surgery to enhance a harmonic face. Obtaining an aesthetically pleasing face is increasingly becoming more important for people, and a considerable part of this goal can be achieved through different aesthetic modifications of the chin. The purpose of this study was to analyze the presence of bone resorption after the insertion of silicone chin implants, with lateral chin radiographs. Fifteen patients were studied, all of whom had a chin silicone implant inserted at least 1 year ago using the same surgical technique. The surgery was done intraorally with insertion of the silicone implant under the periosteum of the chin. Fourteen patients presented bone erosion, with the maximum of 2.0 mm erosion. However, none of them manifested any symptoms of this erosion. In conclusion, even though the majority of the patients presented with bone erosion, the results were minimal and completely asymptomatic; thus, this technique produced an excellent final result.
              Functional Improvement with Free Vascularized Toe-to-hand Proximal Interphalangeal (PIP) Joint Transfer      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageBackground: Reconstruction of small joints of fingers is still challenging in hand surgery. Implant arthroplasty and arthrodesis have some limitations in the reconstruction of small finger joints. Free vascularized PIP joint transfer from second toe to finger is a promising autogenous reconstructive alternative. Methods: In this prospective study, 7 cases of free vascularized PIP joint transfer were analyzed. The measurements for active and passive range of motion (ROM), grip, and pinch strength has been done preoperatively and 1-year postoperatively. The functional change in daily life quality and work-related activities was evaluated with Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) questionnaire. Results: Mean follow-up period was 20.3 months (12–25). Preoperative mean active and passive ROM values were 3.6° (0–14°) and 11.9° (0–29°), respectively. Postoperative 1-year measurements revealed a mean active ROM of 24.1° and a mean passive ROM of 31.6°. Mean grip and pinch strength increased from 52.1 to 58.6 lbs and from 5.1 to 5.9 lbs, respectively. Mean preoperative and postoperative DASH-scores were 41.3 and 30.3. Conclusion: The improvement in ROM, increasing grip strength, and declining DASH scores in our study support that free vascularized joint transfer improves patients’ daily life quality and work-related activities via providing a functional joint if performed with appropriate indications, careful planning, and meticulous surgical execution. Free vascularized joint transfer provides an autogenous, painless, mobile, and stable joint. It also has the advantages of composite tissue reconstruction and lacks the disadvantages of arthrodesis and synthetic joint implants.

    imageSummary: Vasospastic disorders in the hand have been treated with surgical sympathectomy and recently with botulinum toxin A (BTX) injections in the palm. The purpose of this study was to evaluate if it is possible to obtain precise administration of BTX around the radial artery using a single ultrasound-guided injection. We present a novel technique using 1 single ultrasound-guided BTX injection around the radial artery to treat vasospastic symptoms. Ten patients were included in a pilot study. All patients were referred by a rheumatologist after been diagnosed with primary or secondary Raynaud. Under ultrasound guidance, BTX was injected around the radial artery and its comitant veins 3–5 cm proximal to the wrist. Ultrasound-guided injection of BTX allowed for a precise distribution of BTX into the perivascular space of the radial artery and its comitant veins. Intravascular injection could easily be excluded. One patient reported temporary reduced grip strength, most likely due to leakage of BTX to the flexor pollicis longus muscle. No other complications were registered. All patients reported reduced number of vasospastic episodes, warmer hands, and reduced pain. Ultrasound-guided injection enables precise administration of BTX in the space surrounding the radial artery and its comitant veins. This novel approach could be a promising treatment for vasospastic disorders of the hands in patients with primary and secondary Raynaud.
              3D Separable 2-layered Elastic Models of the Face for Surgical Planning of Local Flaps      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageSummary: Reconstruction with the use of local flaps always involves 3 dimensional movements. It is difficult to predict with 3D complex forms stereoscopic changes after local flap operations on the face. We have made 3-dimensional computer-assisted 2-layered elastic models of the face. The surface layer of the model can be detached from the inner layer. By observing the surface model after simulation surgery, it becomes possible to note the distortions caused by the flaps and to determine the tension of each stitch during suturing of the flap. For the simulation surgery, we used our model for a 73-year-old woman with basal cell carcinoma of the nose, selecting the best of several candidate flaps. The time of removal of the stitches could be delayed at the places with high tension. By using these separable 2-layered models of the face, we can choose the best reconstruction method. The actual operation can be performed smoothly, and the best time to remove the stitches can be determined.

    imageSummary: Cardiac pacemakers and implantable cardioverters/defibrillators are often placed in older patients with thin skin and scanty subcutaneous tissue. These devices and cardiac leads are at risk for progressive skin erosion and exposure leading to infection. To prevent this severe complication, we developed a reinforcing insertion of acellular dermal matrix. Twenty-two of 24 patients had successful implantation with long-term avoidance of skin erosion
              Successful Pregnancy and Delivery after Autologous Abdominal Wall Reconstruction using Anterolateral-Thigh and Iliotibial-Tract Flap      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageSummary: The surgical management of abdominal wall tumor in women with childbearing potential is a thorny issue. A synthetic mesh is widely used for abdominal wall reconstruction but not necessarily applicable in case of women of childbearing potential because it has been reported to cause severe pain during pregnancy. Autologous reconstruction is usually considered a feasible option for such cases; however, there is no consensus on this approach and almost no evidence to support it. In the present 2 cases, 2 female patients (age, 17 years and 35 years) with abdominal wall desmoid tumor underwent primary radical resection and autologous reconstruction of an abdominal wall defect in the lateral oblique muscle area (defect size, 13 × 5 cm and 8 × 6 cm) using an anterolateral thigh and iliotibial tract flap. The postoperative course was uneventful. Both patients achieved pregnancy and a full-term delivery without complications with the exception of a feeling of mild stretching in the area of the operation. Magnetic resonance imaging and a clinical examination after the delivery revealed no signs of abdominal wall hernia or bulging. Normal pregnancy and full-term delivery could be obtained after abdominal wall resection and autologous reconstruction using an anterolateral thigh + iliotibial tract flap. This reconstructive method is considered to be a versatile option for the management of abdominal wall tumor in women with childbearing potential; however, further evidence should be accumulated on the reconstruction of wider and central abdominal wall defects.
              Rare Hypothenar Myxoma Causing Ulnar Neuropathy: Histopathology and Treatment Pearls      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageSummary: A myxoma is a neoplasm comprised of mesenchymal connective tissue. Myxomas of the upper extremity, and particularly of the hand, are rare. We present a case of a hypothenar myxoma causing ulnar neuropathy in a patient with a history of acute inflammatory demyelinating process. Treatment and management of myxoma may vary depending on whether the process is malignant or benign; thus, histologic diagnosis is critical to determining treatment. The purpose of this article is to review the pathophysiology and clinical features of myxomas, and to provide recommendations for evaluating and treating individuals with extremity masses of unclear clinical diagnosis.

              Can I containerize an asp.net framework web application?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    I know such questions have already been asked many times, but I am here with my scenario.

    I have an asp.net web application with .net framework and SQL as backend

    1. Using N-Layered architectured
    2. No web services used.
    3. Each instance has a separate database.

    I want to know:

    1. Can I containerize an asp.net framework web application into a windows container?
    2. Do I need to change entire application to Azure Web Application?
    3. If not, is it possible to deploy it directly over the cloud, on MS or any other, as we normally do in IIS?
    4. If not, Is there any third party migration tool available to make my plain old web application cloud-compatible, without affecting existing codes?

    Thanks in advance.

              Tumor Fever in Patients With Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma: Clinical Experience of 67 Patients      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    imageFrom 1982 through 1996, 67 patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) proven to have tumor fever (TF) were analyzed. All were in metastatic stage when TF occurred. Forty-five patients (67%) had recurrent disease. Thirty-eight (57%) had fever before metastatic lesions were detected. The metastatic sites were: 84% in bone, 69% in liver, and 19% in lung. Multiple-organ metastases were found in 64% of the patients. Nine patients (13%) had bone-marrow invasion. When TF was present, 22 (33%) patients had other paraneoplastic syndromes, of which leukemoid reaction (LR) was seen most frequently. After the initiation of naproxen or indomethacin, most patients had complete lysis of the fever within 48 hours. Of the six patients receiving chemotherapy as the initial therapy, all of their temperatures returned to normal range after the treatment. Some patients, particularly those with tumor progression, developed TF again when antipyretic drugs were discontinued. The median survival time was 5 months. In conclusion, TF in NPC is usually a manifestation of metastatic disease. Tumor fever often associates with other paraneoplastic syndromes. Naproxen, indomethacin, and systemic chemotherapy all had effectiveness in ameliorating TF. Systemic metastases should be suspected in NPC patients with fever of unknown origin.

    imageEarmarks, otherwise known as Congressionally directed spending requests, are a historically significant means of political influence over budgets. In this brief, we report on the results of a longitudinal study of federal earmarks affecting health care facilities and public health. We analyzed 10 years of earmark for health care facilities and examined the correlates of being in the top 50% of earmark recipients for each year. Having representatives or senators serving on the respective Appropriations committees were shown to have increased odds of being a top earmark recipient, as was being in jurisdictions with greater poverty. However, health-related measures of need were not significantly associated with being a top earmark recipient.
