          Microsoft threatens to boot the far-right's favorite social network off its cloud over posts that threatened Jews with 'vengeance' (MSFT)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Satya Nadella

  • Microsoft is threatening to kick Gab, a social network popular with the racist far-right, off its cloud hosting service Azure.
  • The company has taken issue with virulently anti-Semitic posts that call for "vengeance" against Jews and the vandalism of Holocaust memorial museums.
  • Microsoft has given Gab a 48-hour deadline to comply.


Microsoft has threatened to kick a social network popular with the racist far-right off its cloud hosting service over anti-Semitic content that advocated genocide and torture of Jews.

Gab, which has been described as "the alt-right's very own Twitter," is hosted on Microsoft's Azure service. But on Thursday, the Seattle-based company said it was considering booting Gab off its network, which would take the social network offline.

In a statement provided to Business Insider, a Microsoft spokesperson said the company had "received a complaint about specific posts on Gab.ai that advocate 'ritual death by torture' and the 'complete annihilation' of all Jews," and that it had determined the content incited violence, "is not protected by the First Amendment, and violates Microsoft Azure's acceptable use policy." 

Multiple users on Gab responded to the news of Microsoft's threat with virulently anti-Semitic messages of their own.

The user behind the two posts in question — which advocate the vandalism of Holocaust memorial museums and discuss in explicit detail a plan for torturing Jews — says he will delete the posts, but as of publication, they remain live on Gab. Microsoft has given Gab 48 hours to take them down.

The furor comes at a time of intense debate over the tech companies' responsibility for the content that appears on their platforms. Facebook and YouTube have recently bowed to public pressure and booted notorious conspiracy theorist Alex Jones from their social networks.

Many Gab users are outraged about Microsoft's actions, painting themselves as martyrs for the cause of free speech — but one of the posts in question is arguably a direct incitement to violence that calls for "vengeance" for the "debt the jew owes the world."

Gab co-founder Andrew Torba issued a statement on the incident from his profile on the site. 

"To the lying, sophist, mainstream media political activists who call themselves 'journalists' reaching out: we are not doing ANY interviews with Fake News," the statement reads in part. It goes on to say that Gab will only speak with Scott Budman, a reporter with NBC Bay Area News. 

We've reached out to Gab for further comment and will update if we hear back.

Here's the full statement from Microsoft:

Microsoft received a complaint about specific posts on Gab.ai that advocate ‘ritual death by torture’ and the ‘complete eradication’ of all Jews. After an initial review, we have concluded that this content incites violence, is not protected by the First Amendment, and violates Microsoft Azure’s acceptable use policy. Microsoft notified Gab.ai of this substantial concern and advised that it remove this content or respond to Microsoft within 48 hours, or potentially risk suspension of its service on Azure.

We believe we have an important responsibility to ensure that our services are not abused by people and groups seeking to incite violence against others. Our policies rightly prohibit this type of content, and we expect Gab.ai to abide by these policies if it wishes to use our service. Gab.ai is of course free to choose otherwise and work with another cloud service provider or host this content itself. If it wishes to make that choice, we will provide it with a reasonable amount of time, in this instance longer than 48 hours, to transition its content elsewhere before its access to Azure is terminated. But we will stand by our policy and insist that Gab.ai remove what is unlawful and hateful content.

          Frequency of Opioid Dispensing After Vaginal Delivery      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
imageOBJECTIVE: To describe nationwide patterns in outpatient opioid dispensing after vaginal delivery. METHODS: Using the Truven Health Analytics MarketScan database, we performed a large, nationwide retrospective cohort study of commercially insured beneficiaries who underwent vaginal delivery between 2003 and 2015 and who were opioid-naive for 12 weeks before the delivery admission. We assessed the proportion of women dispensed an oral opioid within 1 week of discharge, the associated median oral morphine milligram equivalent dose dispensed, and the frequency of opioid refills during the 6 weeks after discharge. We evaluated predictors of opioid dispensing using multivariable logistic regression. RESULTS: Among 1,345,244 women undergoing vaginal delivery, 28.5% were dispensed an opioid within 1 week of discharge. The most commonly dispensed opioids were hydrocodone (44.7%), oxycodone (34.6%), and codeine (13.1%). The odds of filling an opioid were higher among those using benzodiazepines (adjusted odds ratio [OR] 1.87, 95% CI 1.73–2.02) and antidepressants (adjusted OR 1.63, 95% CI 1.59–1.66), smokers (adjusted OR 1.44, 95% CI 1.38–1.51), and among those undergoing tubal ligation (adjusted OR 3.77, 95% CI 3.67–3.87), operative vaginal delivery (adjusted OR 1.52, 95% CI 1.49–1.54), and higher order perineal laceration (adjusted OR 2.15, 95% CI 2.11–2.18). The median (interquartile range, 10th–90th percentile) dose of opioids dispensed was 150 (113–225, 80–345) morphine milligram equivalents, equivalent to 20 tablets (interquartile range 15–30, 10th–90th percentile 11–46) of 5 mg oxycodone. Six weeks after discharge, 8.5% of women filled one or more additional opioid prescriptions. CONCLUSION: Opioid dispensing after vaginal delivery is common and often occurs at high doses. Given the frequency of vaginal delivery, this may represent an important source of overprescription of opioids in the United States.

          Microsoft could suspend cloud hosting for Gab      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Microsoft said Thursday that it may not continue to provide cloud hosting services for Gab, a social network favored by some on the far right, unless Gab removes two anti-Semitic posts that violate its acceptable use policies.

The big picture: Online platforms like Facebook and YouTube have faced a slew of controversies over removing users who engage in hate speech. But the hosts and service providers for individual websites and software systems can crack down, too.


The details: The posts in question come from Patrick Little, a neo-Nazi who attempted a Senate run in California, according to a screenshot of a message from Microsoft that Gab posted. Little said after Microsoft's actions came to light that he would delete the posts, but they remained up as of early Thursday evening.

  • "Microsoft received a complaint about specific posts on Gab.ai that advocate ‘ritual death by torture’ and the ‘complete eradication’ of all Jews," the company said in a statement. "After an initial review, we have concluded that this content incites violence, is not protected by the First Amendment, and violates Microsoft Azure’s acceptable use policy."
  • Gab has 48 hours from when it was notified to "remove this content or respond to Microsoft."

What they're saying: "Gab.ai is of course free to choose otherwise and work with another cloud service provider or host this content itself," the company said. "If it wishes to make that choice, we will provide it with a reasonable amount of time, in this instance longer than 48 hours, to transition its content elsewhere before its access to Azure is terminated."

The backdrop: Many digital platforms have recently banned Alex Jones' InfoWars, which has promoted conspiracy theories for years. Gab itself was started by far-right users unhappy with content moderation and user bans on Twitter and Facebook.

          Uber driver troubles raise concerns about transgender face recognition      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

An Iowa Uber driver who is transgender was required to travel two hours to a local Uber office after a facial-recognition security feature was unable to confirm her identity, CNBC reports. Uber says such issues can often be resolved with a simple phone call, but for Janey Webb, the driver in question, the issue meant she missed out on about three days of work, including a potentially lucrative July 4.

And, according to CNBC, the problem isn’t limited to her. “I don’t think Uber is this evil company,” said Lindsay, another driver who was suspended for photo inconsistencies. “Yeah, their focus is on profit, and one of those things is automating as much as possible, and when you have a system that is so overly automated, people like myself fall within the cracks.”

Uber’s Real Time Face ID feature

An Uber spokesperson defended the company’s policies in an email to Fast Company. “We want Uber to be a welcoming, safe, and respectful experience for all who use the app,” the spokesperson wrote. “That’s why we maintain clear Community Guidelines and a non-discrimination policy for riders and drivers, in addition to many safety features. We continue to focus on ways to advance our tech and constantly improve our app experience.”

The feature in question, called Real-Time ID Check, is designed to reduce fraud by periodically prompting drivers to submit selfies to Uber before they begin a driving session. The company uses Microsoft Azure’s Cognitive Services technology to match the selfie to photos on file, it says.

“During our pilot of Real-Time ID Check over the past few months, the majority of mismatches were due to unclear profile photos,” the company said when the feature launched, in 2016. “And more than 99% of drivers were ultimately verified. Given that verification takes only a few seconds to complete, this feature proactively and efficiently builds more security into the app.”

Uber didn’t immediately provide more up-to-date statistics on how often or in what situations the tool has failed. But this apparent failure raised questions more generally about when facial recognition can be relied on in cases where people’s appearances may change over time. Webb began her gender transition around the time last year that she started to drive for Uber, and her appearance is now quite different, according to CNBC.

Face and so-called automatic gender-recognition systems (AGR) have already provoked concerns among people with diverse gender identities, according to researchers at the University of Maryland. People who transition gender can present a challenge for facial-recognition programs, others have found.

In order to better train such algorithms, Karl Ricanek, a professor of computer science at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, had begun compiling a set of links to YouTube videos showing people’s physical evolutions during the transition process, but The Verge reported last year that he’s since stopped sharing the list out of privacy concerns.

“What kind of harm can a terrorist do if they understand that taking this hormone can increase their chances of crossing over into a border that’s protected by face recognition? That was the problem that I was really investigating,” Ricanek told the website about his research, which has been funded in part by the FBI and the Army.

Separate research has shown that other facial changes, such as from changes in weight or plastic surgery, can also throw off facial-recognition systems. Researchers have also warned that leading commercial face-recognition algorithms have lower rates of accuracy for dark-skinned faces, echoing a trend in which algorithms can amplify human bias. As these systems are increasingly used to verify identity–or to identify criminal suspects–researchers and the companies that rely on them will have to pay close attention to exactly when and why they fail.

          Microsoft threatens to boot the far-right's favorite social network off its cloud over posts that threatened Jews with 'vengeance'      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

In a statement provided to Business Insider, a Microsoft spokesperson said the company had "received a complaint about specific posts on Gab.ai that advocate 'ritual death by torture' and the 'complete annihilation' of all Jews," and that it had determined the content incited violence, "is not protected by the First Amendment, and violates Microsoft Azure's acceptable use policy."

Multiple users on Gab responded to the news of Microsoft's threat with virulently anti-Semitic messages of their own.

The user behind the two posts in question — which advocate the vandalism of Holocaust memorial museums and discuss in explicit detail a plan for torturing Jews — says he will delete the posts, but as of publication, they remain live on Gab. Microsoft has given Gab 48 hours to take them down.

          Blog Post: D365F&O 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 in more detail Prospective Vendor: A contact person Mr. Lee(Supplier Name: Alpha LLC) wants to be the vendor with BEG. BEG is using the D365F&O and they allowed all the anonymous vendors to place the registration request through the website. 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 etc. OData Integration: If the prospective vendor is coming through website OData integration required with D365. Once the Vendor signoff, the vendor contact person can update the basic information, such as the vendor name, justification, organization number, and email address of the contact person. DMF: Also, we can use the DMF(Data management framework) to import the prospective vendors in D365. This will be used if you are not using DMF integration).; Setup D365 Workflow for 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. The purpose of this workflow is to guide the business to perform a series of steps which will lead them to create the approved vendor in D365F&O. 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 everything is ok 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 One of the steps in the workflow is to create the Azure AD B2B user manually. D365 Vendor Collaboration Request: Once the basic data for the prospective vendor available in the D365, it will flag in the Prospective Vendors registration form. Path: Procurement & Sourcing > Vendor collaboration requests. The email invitation sent to the Vendor(Contact person) for the online registration. Vendor contact person will signs up with the shared credentials through email. The vendor contact person 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 Finally, the procurement specialist will complete the review process and once it's confirmed the new vendor will be created in D365. Note: The vendor group is the mandatory field to create the vendor record. Procurement specialist makes sure to select the vendor group in the vendor form. If you have any question related to Prospective Vendor Onboarding Process feel free to contact. Cheers! Ali Danish Microsoft D365F&O Consultant

Tu enfermera sólo sabía hablar italiano,
pero luego de veinte minutos pude imaginarme la semana final
y las lágrimas corrieron por mis mejillas...

Cuando me emabarqué en Italia con el cuerpo de mi madre
toda la costa del Golfo de Génova
estallaba en una vehemente flor.
Los locos amarillos y azulados trineos acuáticos
barrenando como martinetes
es la estela burbujeante spumante de nuestro barco,
recordaban los estrepitosos colores de mi Ford.
Mi madre viajaba en primera clase en la bodega:
su ataúd Risorgimento, negro y oro,
era como el de Napoleón en los Inválidos...

Mientras los pasajeros se tostaban
en el Mediterráneo, en las sillas de cubierta,
nuestro cementerio familiar en Dunbarton
se extendía debajo de las Montañas Blancas
con un tiempo bajo cero.
El suelo del cementerio se estaba convirtiendo en piedra,
tantas de sus muertes habían ocurrido en pleno invierno.
Sombríos y hoscos entre las cegadoras vestiscas,
su negro arroyo y los troncos de los abetos estaban lisos
   como mástiles.
Una cerca de medias lanzas de hierro
bordeaba de negro sus lápidas de pizarra, casi todas
   coloniales.

La única alma "antihistórica" que vino a parar allí
era mi padre, ahora enterrado debajo de su reciente
lonja de mármol de vetas negras sin desgastar.
Aun el latín de su divisa de Lowell:
Occasionem cognosce,
parecía demasiado práctico y agresivo allí,
donde el quemante frío iluminaba
las inscripciones labradas de los parientes de mi madre;
veinte o treinta Winslows y Starks.
La escarcha les había otorgado a sus nombres un borde de
   diamante...

En el grandilocuente rótulo sobre el féretro de mi madre,
Lowell había sido escrito erróneamente LOVEL.
El cadáver
estaba envuelto como un panetone en papel de estaño italiano.

Sailing Home from Rapallo

[February 1954]

Your nurse could only speak Italian,
but after twenty minutes I could imagine your final week,   
and tears ran down my cheeks....

When I embarked from Italy with my Mother’s body,   
the whole shoreline of the Golfo di Genova 
was breaking into fiery flower.
The crazy yellow and azure sea-sleds   
blasting like jack-hammers across
the spumante-bubbling wake of our liner,   
recalled the clashing colors of my Ford.   
Mother traveled first-class in the hold;   
her Risorgimento black and gold casket   
was like Napoleon’s at the Invalides....

While the passengers were tanning   
on the Mediterranean in deck-chairs,   
our family cemetery in Dunbarton   
lay under the White Mountains
in the sub-zero weather.
The graveyard’s soil was changing to stone—
so many of its deaths had been midwinter.   
Dour and dark against the blinding snowdrifts,
its black brook and fir trunks were as smooth as masts.
A fence of iron spear-hafts
black-bordered its mostly Colonial grave-slates.   
The only “unhistoric” soul to come here   
was Father, now buried beneath his recent   
unweathered pink-veined slice of marble.   
Even the Latin of his Lowell motto:   
Occasionem cognosce
seemed too businesslike and pushing here,   
where the burning cold illuminated
the hewn inscriptions of Mother’s relatives:   
twenty or thirty Winslows and Starks.
Frost had given their names a diamond edge....

In the grandiloquent lettering on Mother’s coffin,   
Lowell had been misspelled LOVEL.
The corpse
was wrapped like panettone in Italian tinfoil.

          Pick a serverless fight: A comparative research of AWS Lambda, Azure Functions ...      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The saturation point is nowhere to be seen in the serverless discussion with tons ofnews coming online every day andnumerous reports trying to take the pulse of one of the hottest topics out there.

This time, however, we are not going to discuss any of the above. This article is going to be a bit more…academic!

During the last USENIX Annual Technical Conference ’18 that took place in Boston, USA in mid-July, an amazingly interesting academic research was presented .

The paper “Peeking Behind the Curtains of Serverless Platforms” is a comparative research and analysis of the three big serverless providers AWS Lambda, Azure Functions and Google Cloud Functions. The authors (Liang Wang, Mengyuan Li, Yinqian Zhang, Thomas Ristenpart, Michael Swift) conducted the most in-depth (so far) study of resource management and performance isolation in these three providers.

SEE ALSO: The state of serverless computing: Current trends and future prospects

The study systematically examines a series of issues related to resource management including how quickly function instances can be launched, function instance placement strategies, and function instance reuse. What’s more, the authors examine the allocation of CPU, I/O and network bandwidth among functions and the ensuing performance implications, as well as a couple of exploitable resource accounting bugs .

Did I get your attention now?

In this article, we have an overview of the most interesting results presented in the original paper.

Let’s get started!

Methodology

First things first. Let’s have a quick introduction to the methodology of this study.

The authors conducted this research by integrating all the necessary functionalities and subroutines into a single function that they call a measurement function .

According to the definition found in the paper, this function performs two tasks:

Collect invocation timing and function instance runtime information Run specified subroutines (e.g., measuring local disk I/O throughput, network throughput) based on received messages

In order to have a clear overview of the specifications for each provider, the following table provides a comparison of function configuration and billing in the three services.


Pick a serverless fight: A comparative research of AWS Lambda, Azure Functions  ...

The authors examined how instances and VMs are scheduled in the three serverless platforms in terms of instance coldstart latency, lifetime, scalability, and idle recycling and the results are extremely interesting.

Scalability and instance placement

One of the most intriguing findings, in my opinion, is on the scalability and instance placement of each provider. There is a significant discrepancy among the three big services with AWS being the best regarding support for concurrent execution :

AWS:“3,328MB was the maximum aggregate memory that can be allocated across all function instances on any VM in AWS Lambda. AWS Lambda appears to treat instance placement as a bin-packing problem, and tries to place a new function instance on an existing active VM to maximize VM memory utilization rates.”

Azure:Despite the fact that Azure documentation states that it will automatically scale up to at most 200 instances for a single Nodejs-based function and at most one new function instance can be launched every 10 seconds, the tests of Nodejs-based functions performed by the authors showed that “at most 10 function instances running concurrently for a single function”, no matter how the interval between invocations were changed.

Google:Contrary to what Google claims on how HTTP-triggered functions will scale to the desired invocation rate quickly, the service failed to provide the desired scalability for the study. “In general, only about half of the expected number of instances, even for a low concurrency level (e.g., 10), could be launched at the same time, while the remainder of the requests were queued.”

Interesting fact: More than 89% of VMs tested achieved 100% memory utilization.

Coldstart and VM provisioning

Concerning coldstart (the process of launching a new function instance) and VM provisioning, AWS Lambda appears to be on the top of its game :

AWS:Two types of coldstart events were examined: “a function instance is launched (1) on a new VM that we have never seen before and (2) on an existing VM. Intuitively, case (1) should have significantly longer coldstart latency than (2) because case (1) may involve starting a new VM.” However, the study shows that “case (1) was only slightly longer than (2) in general. The median coldstart latency in case (1) was only 39 ms longer than (2) (across all settings). Plus, the smallest VM kernel uptime (from /proc/uptime) that was found was 132 seconds, indicating that the VM has been launched before the invocation.” Therefore, these results show that AWS has a pool of ready VMs! What’s more, concerning the extra delays in case (1), the authors argue that they are “more likely introduced by scheduling rather than launching a VM.”

Azure:According to the findings, it took much longer to launch a function instance in Azure, despite the fact that their instances are always assigned 1.5GB memory. The median coldstart latency was 3,640 ms in Azure.

Google:“The median coldstart latency in Google ranged from 110 ms to 493 ms. Google also allocates CPU proportionally to memory, but in Google memory size has a greater impact on coldstart latency than in AWS.”

SEE ALSO: What do developer trends in the cloud look like?

Additional to the tests described above, the research team “collected the coldstart latencies of 128 MB, python 2.7 (AWS) or Nodejs 6.* (Google and Azure) based functions every 10 seconds for over 168 hours (7 days), and calculated the median of the coldstart latencies collected in a given hour.” According to the results, “the coldstart latencies in AWS were relatively stable, as were those in Google (except for a few spikes). Azure had the highest network variation over time, ranging from about 1.5 seconds up to 16 seconds.” Take a look at the figure below:

Source: “Peeking Behind the Curtains of Serverless Platforms”, Figure 8, p. 139

Instance lifetime

The research team defines as instance lifetime “the longest time a function instance stays active.

Keeping in mind that users prefer the longer lifetimes, the results depict Azure winning this one since Azure functions provide significantly longer lifetimes than AWS and Google, as you can see in the figures below:

Idle instance recycling

Instance maximum idle time is defined by the authors as “the longest time an instance can stay idle before getting shut down.” Specifically for each service provider, the results show:

Long time ago (about 5 years, at least), I contributed an article to SignalR wiki about scaling a SignalR application with Redis. You can still find the article here . I also blogged about ithere. However, over time, pictures got lost there. I got a few requests from my readers to refresh those images and I was lucky enough to be able to find them :) I decided to publish that article here so that I would have a much better control over the content. So, here is the post :)

Please keep in mind that this is a really old post and lots of things have evolved since then. However, I do believe the concepts still resonate and it’s valuable to show the ways of how to achieve this within a cloud provider’s context. SignalR with Redis Running on a windows Azure Virtual Machine

This wiki article will walk your through on how you can run your SignalR application in multiple machines with Redis as your backplane using Windows Azure Virtual Machines for scale out scenarios.

Creating the Windows Azure Virtual Machines

First of all, we will spin up our virtual machines. What we want here is to have two Windows Server 2008 R2 virtual machines for our SignalR application and we will name them as Web1-08R2 and Web2-08R2 . We will have the IIS installed on both of these servers and at the end, we will load balance the request on port 80.

Our third virtual machine will be another Windows Server 2008 R2 only for our Redis server. We will call this server Redis-08R2 .

To spin up the VMs, go to new Windows Azure Management Portal and hit New icon at the bottom-right corner.


Pulling an Old Article From the Coffin: SignalR with Redis Running on a Windows  ...

Creating a virtual machine running Windows Server 2008 R2 is explained here in details. We followed the same steps to create our first VM named Web1-08R2 .

The second VM we will be creating has a slightly different approach than the first one. Under the hood, every virtual machine is a cloud service instance and we want to put our second VM (Web2-08R2) under the same cloud service that our first web VM is running under. To do that, we need to follow the same steps as explained inside the previously mentioned article but when we come to 3rd step in the creation wizard, we should chose Connect to existing Virtual Machine option this time and we should choose our first VM we have just created.


Pulling an Old Article From the Coffin: SignalR with Redis Running on a Windows  ...

As the last step, we now need to create our redis VM which will be named Redis-08R2. We will follow the same steps as we did when we were creating our second web VM (Web2-08R2).

Setting Up Redis as a Windows Service

To use Redis on a Windows machine, we went to Redis on Windows prototype GitHub page and cloned the repository and followed the steps explained under How to build Redis using Visual Studio section.

After you build the project, you will have all the files you need under msvs\bin\release path as zip files. redisbin.zip file will contain the redis server, redis command line interface and some other stuff. rediswatcherbin.zip file will contain the msi file to install redis as a windows service. You can just copy those zip files to your Redis VM and extract redisbin.zip under c:\redis\bin . Then follow the steps:

Currently, there is a bug in the RedisWatcher installer and if you don't have Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package installed on your machine, the service won't start. So, I installed it first.

Copy this redis.conf file and put it under c:\redis\bin directory. Open it up and add a password by adding the following line of code:

requirepass 1234567

Take this note into considiration when you are setting up your redis password:

Warning: since Redis is pretty fast an outside user can try up to 150k passwords per second against a good box. This means that you should use a very strong password otherwise it will be very easy to break.

Then, extract the rediswatcherbin.zip somewhere and run the InstallWatcher.msi to install the service.

Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\RedisWatcher directory. You will see a file named watcher.conf inside this directory. Open this file up and replace the entire file with the following text. Only difference here is that we are supplying the redis.conf file directory for the server to use:

exepath c:\redis\bin exename redis-server.exe { workingdir c:\redis\inst1 runmode hidden saveout 1 cmdparms c:\redis\bin\redis.conf }

Create a folder named inst1 under c:\redis because we have specified this folder as working directory for our redis instance.

When you do a search against windows services in PowerShell, you will see RedisWatcherSvc service is installed.


Pulling an Old Article From the Coffin: SignalR with Redis Running on a Windows  ...

Run the following PowerShell command to start the service for the first time.

(Get-Service -Name RedisWatcherSvc).Start()

Now we have a Redis server running on our VM. To test if it is actually running, open up a windows command window under c:\redis\bin and run the following command (assuming you set your password 1234567):

redis-cli -h localhost -p 6379 -a 1234567

Now, you have a redis client running.


Pulling an Old Article From the Coffin: SignalR with Redis Running on a Windows  ...

Ping the redis to see if you are really authenticated:


Pulling an Old Article From the Coffin: SignalR with Redis Running on a Windows  ...

Now, we are nearly set. As a last step in our redis server, we need to open up TCP port 6379 for external communication. You can do this under Windows Firewall with Advanced Security window as explained here .

Communicating Through Internal Endpoints Between Windows Azure Virtual Machines Under Same Cloud Service

When you are inside one of your web VMs, you can simply look up the redis VM by hostname.


Pulling an Old Article From the Coffin: SignalR with Redis Running on a Windows  ...

The hostname will resolve to DIP (Dynamic IP Address) which Windows Azure will use internally. We can configure public endpoints through Windows Azure Management Portal easily but in that case, we would be opening redis to the whole world. Also, if we communicate to our redis server through VIP (Virtual IP Address), we would always go through the load balancer which has its own additional cost.

So, we can easily connect to our redis server from any other connected VM by hostname.

The SignalR Application with Redis

Our SignalR application will not be that much different from a normal SignalR application thanks to SignalR.Redis project. All you need to do is to add the SignalR.Redis nuget package into your application and configure SignalR to use Redis as the message bus inside the Application_Start method in Global.asax.cs file:

protected void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e) { // Hook up redis string server = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["redis.server"]; string port = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["redis.port"]; string password = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["redis.password"]; GlobalHost.DependencyResolver.UseRedis(server, Int32.Parse(port), password, "SignalR.Redis.Sample"); }

For our demo, the AppSettings should look like as below:

<appSettings> <add key="redis.server" value="Redis-08R2" /> <add key="redis.port" value="6379" /> <add key="redis.password" value="1234567" /> </appSettings>

I put the application under IIS on our both web servers (Web1-08R2 and Web2-08R2) and configured them to run under .NET Framework 4.0 integrated application pool.

For this demo, I am using the Redis.Sample chat application included inside the SignalR.Redis project.

Let's test them quickly before going public. I fired the both web applications inside the servers and here is the result:


Pulling an Old Article From the Coffin: SignalR with Redis Running on a Windows  ...

Perfectly running! Let's open them up to the world.

Opening up the Port 80 and Load Balancing the Requets

Our requirement here is to make our application reachable over HTTP and at the same time, we want to load balance the request between our two web servers.

To do that, we need to go to Windows Azure Management portal and set up the TCP endpoints for port 80.

First, we navigate to dashboard of our Web1-08R2 VM and hit Endpoints from the dashboard menu:


Pulling an Old Article From the Coffin: SignalR with Redis Running on a Windows  ...

From there, hit the End Endpoint icon at the bottom of the page:


Pulling an Old Article From the Coffin: SignalR with Redis Running on a Windows  ...

A wizard is going to appear on the screen:


Pulling an Old Article From the Coffin: SignalR with Redis Running on a Windows  ...

Click the right-arrow icon and go to next step which is the last one and we will enter the port details there:


Pulling an Old Article From the Coffin: SignalR with Redis Running on a Windows  ...

After that, our endpoint will be created:


Pulling an Old Article From the Coffin: SignalR with Redis Running on a Windows  ...

Follow the same steps of Web2-08R2 VM as well and open the Add Endpoint wizard. This time, we will be able to select Load-balance traffic on an existing port. Chose the previously created port and continue:


Pulling an Old Article From the Coffin: SignalR with Redis Running on a Windows  ...

At the last step, enter the proper details and hit save:


Pulling an Old Article From the Coffin: SignalR with Redis Running on a Windows  ...

We will see our new endpoint is being crated but this time Load Balanced column indicates Yes .


Pulling an Old Article From the Coffin: SignalR with Redis Running on a Windows  ...

As we configured our web applications without a host name and they are exposed through port 80, we can directly run reach our application through the URL or Public Virtual IP Address (VIP) which is provided to us. When we run our application, we should see it running as below:

No matter which server it goes, the message will be broadcasted to every client because we will be using Redis as a message bus.

          Provisioning complex Modern Sites with Azure Functions and Microsoft Flow Par ...      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

In one of my previous bloghere, I have discussed about creating Office 365 groups using Azure Function and Flow. The same process could be used also to provision Modern Team sites in SharePoint Online because Modern Team Sites are Office 365 groups too. However, if you are creating a Complex Modern Team Site with lots of Libraries, Content types, Termstore associated columns etc. it will challenging to do it with a single Azure Function.

Thus, in this blog (part 1), we will look at the Architecture of a Solution to provision a complex Modern Team Site using multiple Azure Function and Flows. This is an approach that went through four months of validation and testing. There might be other options but this one worked for the complex team site which takes around 45-90 mins to provision.

Solution Design

To start with lets’ look at the solution design. The solution consists of two major components

Template Creation Create a SharePoint Modern Team site to be used as a template and generate a Provisioning template from it Provisioning Process Create a SharePoint Inventory List to run the Flow and Azure Function. There will be three Azure Functions that will run three separate parts of the provisioning lifecycle. More details about the Azure Functions will in upcoming blog. Get the Provisioning Template

The first step in the process is to create a clean site that will be used as a reference template site for the Provisioning template. In this site, create all the lists, libraries, site columns, content type and set other necessary site settings.

In order to make sure that the generated template doesn’t have any elements which are not needed for provisioning, use the following PnP PowerShell cmdlet. The below cmdlet removes any content type hub association, ALM api handles and site security for provisioning requirements.

Get-PnPProvisioningTemplate -Out "<Folder location in drive>" -ExcludeHandlers ApplicationLifecycleManagement, SiteSecurity -ExcludeContentTypesFromSyndication

The output of the above cmdlet is ProvisioningTemplate.xml file which could be applied to new sites for setting up the same SharePoint elements. To know more about the provisioning template file, schema and allowed tags, check the link here .


Provisioning complex Modern Sites with Azure Functions and Microsoft Flow   Par ...
Team Site Provsioning Process

The second step in the process would be to create and apply the template to a Modern SharePoint Team site using Flow and Azure Function. The detail steps would be as follows:

1. Create an Inventory list to capture all the requirements for Site Creation

2. Create two flows

a) Create and Apply Template flow, and

b) Post Provisioning Flow

3. Create three Azure Functions

a) Create a blank Modern Team Site

b) Apply Provisioning Template on the above site. This is a long running process and can take about 45-90 min for applying a complex template with about 20 libraries, 20-30 site columns and 10-15 content types

Note:Azure Functions on Consumption plan have a timeout of 10 min. Host the Azure function on an App Service Plan for the above to work without issues

c) Post Provisioning to apply changes that are not supported by Provisioning Template such as Creating default folders etc.

Below is the process flow for the provisioning process. It has steps from 1 11 which goes from creating the site to applying it. The brief list of the steps are as follows

Call the Create Site flow to start the Provisioning Process Call the Create Site Azure Function Create the Modern Team Site in Azure Function and set any dependencies required for the Apply template such as Navigation items, pages etc, and then return to flow Call the Apply Template Azure Function. Get the previously generated ProvisioningTemplate.xml file from a shared location Apply the Template onto the newly created Modern site. Note: The flow call times out because it cannot wait for such a long running process Update the status column in the Site Directory for the post provisioning flow to start Call the Post provisioning flow to run the Post provisioning azure function The Post provisioning azure function will complete the remaining SharePoint changes which were not completed by the apply template such as, set field default values, create folders in any libraries, associate default values to taxonomy fields etc.
Provisioning complex Modern Sites with Azure Functions and Microsoft Flow   Par ...
Conclusion:

Hence in the above blog, we saw how to create a provisioning process to handle complex modern team site creation at a high architectural level. Next, we will deep dive into the Azure functions to create, apply template and post process in the next upcoming blogs.

Happy Coding!!!

Is Azure AD the future of Active Directory?

With all the talk of changing directory services in the identity management sector, there’s a great deal of confusion about what the future holds. Long time industry leader, Microsoft Active Directory (AD or MAD), seems to be losing its grip on the market, and it’s creating an apparent vacuum in the directory services space. Microsoft Azure Active Directory might be able to fill that vacuum, although many are still unsure. Foundationally, IT admins are wondering, is Azure AD the future of Active Directory?

A Pressing Question
Is Azure AD the future of Active Directory?

The question is a complicated one because it touches on a number of areas of the identity and access management market. To start, Azure Active Directory is not a replacement to Active Directory . In fact, it doesn’t even seem as though Microsoft wants to replace AD with Azure AD. Certainly, given AD’s dominant hold on the IT industry, Microsoft feels no need to cannibalize it any time soon. Therefore, it’s clear that Microsoft wants Azure AD to be a complement to Active Directory. More importantly though, Azure AD is meant to be the mechanism that entices IT organizations towards using Azure, and subsequently keeping them there.

From a business standpoint, Microsoft doesn’t want to make it easy for IT organizations to shift to their competitors, such as G Suite , Google Cloud Platform, or AWS . They do, however, want to make it interesting enough to draw IT organizations towards their platform. Often, a choice for IaaS also includes ancillary solutions that support the ability to manage and secure cloud infrastructure, hence why Microsoft needs a cloud IAM tool to be competitive with AWS IAM and Google IAM.

Microsoft’s Identity Management Plans for the Future
Is Azure AD the future of Active Directory?

So, while Azure AD isn’t a replacement for Active Directory ― even by Microsoft’s own admission via this post on Spiceworks ― that doesn’t mean that they don’t view Azure AD as a key part of their future. Microsoft is working to shift their entire business to the cloud, and Azure AD is integral to their plans. Azure AD ties directly to cloud infrastructure, the (Read more...)

          AUD/USD Review: accelerating into 0.7350      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
  • The Aussie is drifting further heading into Friday's more liquid sessions.
  • A stalwart RBA is hoping for further declines in the AUD to bolster Australian exports in a bid to generate growth in their domestic economy.

The AUD/USD is trading into 0.7350 as Friday sees markets pushing n favour of the Greenback as risk aversion remains just beneath the surface to cap off the trading week.

The Reserve Bank of Australia's (RBA) latest Statement of Monetary Policy delivered nothing of value for traders to digest, with the central bank well-entrenched in their current wait-and-see strategy after two straight years of no policy moves, and the AUD/USD sees Friday's upcoming US CPI reading as the final event of the week.

The US inflation reading, expected at 12:30 GMT, sees US Core CPI for the year to July forecast to hold steady at 2.3%. Inflation in the US has been on the high side by comparison to most other developed economies, spurring the US Fed to a faster pace of rate hikes than other central banks, leading to a widening rate differential, providing a healthy base of support for the USD, which was broadly expected to decline for 2018. A positive reading for US CPI numbers for Friday could see the Greenback take another leg up across the broader markets as traders scramble to adjust for a US Fed that is likely to remain hawkish and be quick on the jump to head off further inflation that threatens to become hazardous.

AUD/USD Technical Analysis

The Aussie faces further decliners as the broader market slowly rolls over into another spat of USD-buying with the RBA providing little support for the hammered AUD. The AUD/USD has been trapped in a rough range for over eight weeks, and sellers would be all too happy to break the lower bounds of consolidation and re-establish a longterm bear trend.

          EUR/USD put value jumps to highest since early May 2017      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
  • The EUR put option value has hit a 27-month high. 
  • The rising demand for the EUR puts indicates the investors are likely preparing for a deeper drop in the common currency. 

The one-month 25 delta risk reversals (EUR1MRR) dropped to -1.2 today - the lowest level since May 3, 2017 - meaning the implied volatility premium for the put options (bearish bets) or the demand for the put options has hit the highest level in 27 months.

A week ago, the risk reversals stood at -0.90, while the recent high of -0.60 was registered on July 31.

The steady decline indicates the sentiment in the options market has turned bearish. It adds credence to the bear pennant breakdown seen on the EUR/USD daily chart.

Indeed, times are tough for the common currency.

          EUR/USD: Bears reinforced ahead of the US CPI release      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
  • The EUR's failed attempt to retake the pennant has likely strengthened the bear case.
  • An above-forecast US CPI reading will likely add to the bearish pressure around the EUR/USD.

The EUR/USD closed yesterday at 1.1527 –  the lowest daily close since July 20, 2017 –  having faced rejection at the lower end of the pennant (former support-turned-resistance) on Wednesday.

The failure to retake the pennant on Wednesday, followed by a bearish daily close yesterday, validates the last week's pennant breakdown and has likely strengthened the case for a drop below 1.15.

Focus on the US CPI

The data, scheduled for release at 12:30 GMT, is expected to show the cost of living as represented by the consumer price index (CPI) rose 0.2 percent month-on-month in July. An above-forecast print would bolster the already bearish technical setup and open the doors to a drop below 1.15.

On the other hand, EUR/USD could have another ago at the pennant resistance (lower end of the pennant) if the US CPI prints below estimates. That said, only a daily close above the 10-day moving average (MA), currently located at 1.1603, would reduce the bearish pressure. This is because the MA has proved a tough nut to crack in the previous two trading days.

At press time, the EUR/USD is trading at 1.1532.

Resistance: 1.1564 (5-day moving average), 1.1603 (10-day moving average), 1.1628 (Wednesday's high)

Hello Karn,

Generally, this scenario is not tested and third party integration is beyond our support scope. But essentially, RadPivotGrid should be properly bound to data which is accessible regardless whether it is coming from Azure, Oracle, AWS, Stored Procedure, etc.

To resolve this, you can try to set some specific credentials as demonstrated in this article:
https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/controls/pivotgrid/data-binding/radpivotgrid-olap-support.html

If this does not work, please ensure with some code-behind C# logic that the data you are trying to fetch from Azure is accessible in your application. For instance, you can display some field value from the first record to an asp:Label on the page to verify that.

          Anatomical Study of the Popliteal Artery Perforator–Based Propeller Flap and Its Clinical Application      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
imageSummary: There is lack of anatomical information regarding the cutaneous perforator of the popliteal artery and its connections with the descending branch of the inferior gluteal and profunda femoris arteries. The authors aimed to evaluate the anatomical basis of the popliteal artery perforator–based propeller flap from the posterior thigh region and to demonstrate their experience using this flap. Ten fresh cadaveric lower extremities were dissected following injection of a silicone compound into the femoral artery. The authors investigated the number, location, length, and diameter of cutaneous perforators of the popliteal artery. Based on the results, the authors treated three cases with a large soft-tissue defect around the knee using a popliteal artery perforator–based propeller flap. The authors found a mean of 1.9 cutaneous perforators arising from the popliteal artery, with a mean pedicle length of 6 cm and a mean arterial internal diameter of 0.9 mm, which were located at an average of 4 cm proximal to the bicondylar line. The most distal perforator consistently arose along the small saphenous vein and connected proximally with the concomitant artery of the posterior femoral cutaneous nerve, forming a connection with perforating arteries of the profunda femoris artery. A mean of 4.5 cutaneous perforators branched from the arterial connection sites. All clinical cases healed without any complications. The popliteal artery perforator–based propeller flap is reliable for reconstruction of soft-tissue defects around the knee. The flap should include the deep fascia and concomitant artery along with the posterior femoral cutaneous nerve for maintaining the blood supply.

          David Carreira com comportamentos de m****      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

David Carreira encontra-se no centro da polémica e logo em duas frentes, ambas envolvendo a PSP. 

Primeiramente alugou uma viatura da PSP para um videoclip mas acabou por desrespeitar o contrato feito entre a produtora responsável e a entidade de segurança. Segundo a imprensa, um guião sobre o que iria ser gravado junto do veículo foi enviado para análise e a descrição indicava que bailarinas irão estar a dançar na frente da viatura com David Carreira a sair do lugar do condutor e a cantar. O que não aconteceu, tal como pode ser visto no videoclip. Neste mesmo tema existe ainda a questão de na letra existir por várias vezes a palavra «f***», pela voz de Deejay Telio, quando no guião a letra indica «problema» no seu lugar, isto segundo indicações do porta-voz da PSP Hugo Palma que afirma ainda que estas questões violam o contrato feito e que mancham a imagem da PSP. 

Como se isto não bastasse, o filho de Tony Carreira resolveu fazer mais uma das suas como se tivesse a entrar na fase de jovem rebelde do quero, posso e mando. Agora filmou um desafio perigoso que tem vindo a ganhar adeptos por todo o mundo - #InMyFeelings - que consiste em sair do carro em andamento. Um comportamento perigoso tanto para quem o pratica como para quem tem o azar de se cruzar com estes supostos condutores que colocam vidas em risco por uma brincadeira de mau gosto. 

Já não bastava a quantidade de «f***-se» com um carro da PSP por perto no videoclip de «O Problema é que Ela é Linda» e ainda foi este jovem, que parece andar a perder a noção do que representa para muitos jovens, dar um mau exemplo com os seus comportamentos quando devia fazer precisamente o alerta sobre o que não deve acontecer sobre estes atos que se tornam virais. 

Um processo bem colocado por parte das autoridades talvez não fosse mal pensado, mas sendo filho de quem é, tudo deverá passar ao lado, para mais em pleno Agosto com meio Portugal a gozar férias e os serviços a meio gás. Vá, fechem os olhos mais uma vez que até vai parecer que tudo isto acontece dentro da normalidade.

          Association Between Attempted External Cephalic Version and Perinatal Morbidity and Mortality      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
imageOBJECTIVE: To examine whether, with fetal malpresentation at term, perinatal morbidity and mortality differ between women who undergo an external cephalic version (ECV) attempt and those who do not and are expectantly managed. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study of women with nonanomalous singleton gestations in nonvertex presentation delivering at a tertiary care institution from 2006 to 2016. Women undergoing an ECV attempt at 37 weeks of gestation or greater were compared with those with nonvertex fetuses who did not undergo an ECV attempt and delivered at 37 weeks of gestation or greater. The primary outcome was a composite of perinatal morbidity and mortality including stillbirth, neonatal death within 72 hours, Apgar score less than 5 at 5 minutes, umbilical artery pH less than 7.0, base deficit 12 mmol/L or greater, or neonatal therapeutic hypothermia. Secondary outcomes were neonatal intensive care unit admission and neonatal anemia (hemoglobin value less than 13.5 g/dL). Bivariable and multivariable analyses were performed. RESULTS: Of the 4,117 women meeting eligibility criteria, 1,263 (30.7%) attempted ECV; 509 (40.3%) of these attempts resulted in successful versions. In bivariable analyses, women who underwent attempted ECV were more likely to be non-Hispanic white and multiparous and had lower mean body mass indexes. The composite perinatal morbidity and mortality outcome did not differ significantly between women who did and did not undergo attempted ECV (2.9% vs 2.5%, P=.46). The frequencies of neonatal intensive care unit admission (3.6% vs 3.3%, P=.53) and neonatal anemia (1.6% vs 1.2%, P=.36) were also similar. There continued to be no association between ECV attempt and composite perinatal morbidity and mortality outcome after adjustment for potential confounders (adjusted odds ratio 1.02, 95% CI 0.66–1.60). CONCLUSION: Compared with expectant management, an ECV attempt at term is not associated with increased perinatal morbidity or mortality.

   •  Bears dragged the pair below a short-term descending trend-channel in the overnight trading session and the selling pressure remains unabated for the seventh consecutive session on Friday.

   •  The ongoing USD upsurge further set off the bearish tone through the early European session and ahead of important UK macroeconomic releases, including the prelim Q2 GDP growth figures.

   •  A break below the August 2017 low now opens the room for an extension of the well-established bearish trend, albeit near-term oversold conditions might help limit losses, for the time being.

The UK Economic Data Overview

The UK docket has the monthly and quarterly GDP releases today for the second quarter, alongside the trade balance and industrial production, all of which will be published later this session at 0830 GMT.

The United Kingdom GDP is expected to arrive at 0.3% m/m in June while the first readout of the Q2 GDP is seen at 0.4% q/q and 1.3% y/y.

Meanwhile, the manufacturing production, which makes up around 80% of total industrial production, is expected to show m/m growth of 0.3% in June, down from an expansion of 0.4% recorded in May. The total industrial production is expected to come in at 0.4% m/m in June as compared to the previous reading of -0.4%.

On an annualized basis, the industrial production for June is expected to have eased to 0.7% versus 0.8% previous, while the manufacturing output is also anticipated to have dropped to 1.0% in the reported month versus 1.1% last.

Separately, the UK goods trade balance will be reported at the same time and is expected to show a deficit of £12.05 billion in June vs. £12.36 deficit reported last.

Deviation impact on GBP/USD

Readers can find FX Street's proprietary deviation impact map of the event below. As observed the reaction is likely to remain confined around 20-pips in deviations up to + or -2, although in some cases, if notable enough, a deviation can fuel movements in excess of 60-70 pips.

How could affect GBP/USD?

Today's macro releases could be overshadowed by escalating trade tensions that have weighed down heavily on the Lira, Yuan and Ruble over the last trading days. However, upbeat UK GDP figures could offer the much-needed respite the GBP bulls, but it could be a temporary relief, as the bears could return on upbeat US July CPI data.  

Haresh Menghani, FXStreet’s Analyst notes: “Looking at the technical picture, the pair on Thursday confirmed a fresh bearish breakdown below a short-term descending trend-channel and hence, seems more likely to extend the downward trajectory towards testing August 2017 lows, around the 1.2775-70 region. A follow-through selling has the potential to continue dragging the pair further towards testing sub-1.2700 level in the near-term. On the flip side, any recovery attempts might now confront fresh supply near the trend-channel support break-point, now turned resistance, around the 1.2840-50 region.”

About the UK Economic Data

The Gross Domestic Product released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) is a measure of the total value of all goods and services produced by the UK. The GDP is considered as a broad measure of the UK economic activity. Generally speaking, a rising trend has a positive effect on the GBP, while a falling trend is seen as negative (or bearish).

The Manufacturing Production released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) measures the manufacturing output. Manufacturing Production is significant as a short-term indicator of the strength of UK manufacturing activity that dominates a large part of total GDP. A high reading is seen as positive (or bullish) for the GBP, while a low reading is seen as negative (or bearish).

The trade balance released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) is a balance between exports and imports of goods. A positive value shows trade surplus, while a negative value shows trade deficit. It is an event that generates some volatility for the GBP.

   •  The precious metal extended overnight rejection slide from 200-hour SMA and dropped to test the lower end of its weekly trading range in the last hour. 

   •  A strong follow-through USD buying interest was seen as one of the key factors exerting some fresh selling pressure around the dollar-denominated commodity.

   •  A convincing break through the rectangular chart pattern formation should open room for the resumption of the commodity's well-established bearish trend. 

   •  Technical indicators on the 1-hourly chart have started drifting into oversold territory and might be the only factor to help limit deeper losses ahead of today's US CPI figures.

   •  Weakness below the 0.7300 handle now seems to have confirmed a bearish breakdown below an eight-week-old broader trading range. 

   •  Technical indicators on daily charts are still far from near-term oversold conditions and thus, increase the pair's vulnerability to continue with its downward trajectory.

imageObjective To localize genes conferring susceptibility to bipolar affective disorder. Methods Seven families were selected on the basis of containing multiple cases of bipolar affective disorder present in three or more generations, an absence of schizophrenia and unilineal transmission. DNA samples from these families were genotyped with 365 microsatellite markers spaced at approximately 10 cM intervals across the whole genome. All markers were subjected to initial two-point and three-point analyses using LOD score and model-free analysis. All regions producing a result significant atP<0.01 were then subjected to four-point LOD score analysis under the assumption of heterogeneity. Results A four-point LOD score of 2.8 was obtained using a dominant model and including unipolar cases as affected in the region of D12S342. Four-point LOD scores of 2 were obtained around D1S243, D1S251 and D3S1265. The positive results around D1S243 were accounted for by a LOD score of 3.1 occurring in a single pedigree. Conclusions Since there has been previous strong support for linkage to the region of 12q23-q24 around D12S342, it now seems very probable that it does indeed contain a gene influencing susceptibility to bipolar affective disorder. Some evidence for linkage in the region of 1q near to D1S251 has been reported in one previous study. It therefore seems that this region of 1q and the region of 1p close to D1S243 may also harbour susceptibility genes.

          Dependency free Generic EWS oAuth PowerShell example for Office365       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Microsoft recently posted an update that will affect those people who use EWS in applications and script against Office365 https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/exchange/2018/07/03/upcoming-changes-to-exchange-web-services-ews-api-for-office-365 

While 2020 is a few years away what this means is that if you are using Basic Authentication in your EWS scripts or applications that on the 13th October 2020 your app will stop working. Given the amount of time you have and the changes required to support oAuth nobody should really be caught out by this but procrastination and people not understanding legacy applications will mean I'm sure this date won't pass without any infamy.

Within PowerShell scripts you have two options to generate the oAuth tokens you need to keep you script working. One is to use a dependency library like ADAL to do it which Ingo posted a really good write up for https://ingogegenwarth.wordpress.com/2018/08/02/ews-and-oauth the other is just create some of your own script code to do the Authentication and managed of the Tokens. As part of my Exch-Rest library because I wanted to make this dependency free I wrote my own routines for Getting and Renewing OAuth tokens needed which can also be used for EWS . So in this post I've separated those out and included them into a simple header script that can be used to do oAuth against Office365.

EWS Managed API and oAuth

If you using the EWS Managed API in your scripts which the majority of people do it contains code already to add the correct Bearer headers in for Oauth if you use  the OAuthCredentials class


        $OAuthCredentials = New-Object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.OAuthCredentials((ConvertFrom-SecureStringCustom -SecureToken $Script:Token.access_token))
        $service.Credentials = $OAuthCredentials

If your using the ADAL library be aware while its correct to say it does have a TokenCache and code to refresh the tokens once they expire this won't work with the EWS Managed API. As you can see from the code above because you only pass in the Access_Token (as a String) into this class it doesn't do any active management of the Token from that point. This means if you just pass in the AccessToken from whatever method you used to generated it if your script runs for more then one hour your code will fail at the 60 minute point. Unfortunately the EWS Managed API doesn't have a CallBack to use where you could link in the ADAL libraries refresh function (or your own code to manage the token refresh) to check before making a request. So one important modification you should make to your code if before it makes an EWS call (eg Bind,Load,findItems etc) you will need to add in code to check for expired tokens. The ADAL has the acquiretokensilentasync method for this (this will return the token from cache or renew if necessary), in the code in my example I have the Invoke-ValidateToken function which does the renewal after 50 minutes to avoid token expiration.

Application registrations

Its always a good idea to create your own application registration as this gives you the ultimate control over what rights a script or application will have in your environment (although EWS really only has one grant that will work which is full Mailbox Access). But creating you own ApplicationId's allows you  track the use of the ApplicationId and potential audit the miss use of a particular application more effectively. For scripts using the Native application type and the Out of Band redirect(urn:ietf:wg:oauth:2.0:oob) is generally a good idea as you won't have an registered endpoint online to redirect the Authentication to once its complete. There are some good walk throughs to do this https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/dawiese/2017/04/15/get-office365-usage-reports-from-the-microsoft-graph-using-windows-powershell/ shows the newer portal screens.

Last word on security

While oAuth is a great improvement in security over basic Authentication its not the panacea in itself for the InfoSec issues the IT industry faces as a whole. So you should see implementing oAuth as a step in the right direction but be careful and always treat access tokens like you would usernames and passwords (eg don't store them in plain text) and look at always strengthening your authentication with measures like Multi-Factor Authentication. 


The script includes a Test function which just binds to the Inbox so you use it like

Import-Module .\GenericOauthEWS.ps1 -Force

Test-EWSConnection -MailboxName gscales@datarumble.com

Testing

Like any script you get off the Internet you should always do your own testing but consider these points of failure for Oauth tokens that you wouldn't have to have previously considered with Basic Auth

  • If things run for more the 1 hour does my token renew correctly
  • If the AccessToken suddenly becomes Invalid for X Reason and I get a 401 error in my code will it handle the reauth (using the RefreshToken). (for the second part you need to build in an exception handler in you code for 401 error when using oAuth)
Regional Azure Endpoints

This script is hardcoded to use the common (Production) Azure Authentication endpoint that the majority of Office365 Tenants would use however some regions like China,Germany and US Government have their own dedicated endpoint so you would need to change the URL in this case see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/solution-guidance/extending-sharepoint-online-for-germany-china-usgovernment-environments . There are ways of discovering the Endpoint dynamically which I'll included in future updates of the script.

          Systemic Inflammatory Response During Cardiac Surgery: A Pilot Study      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
imageObjective There is a growing body of evidence indicating that perioperative fluid management during cardiac surgery influences patient care and outcome. The choice of fluid therapy and the degree of systemic inflammatory response triggered during surgery control the effects of tissue edema formation and end-organ function. As such, “goal-directed” fluid resuscitation protocols that measure colloid osmotic pressure (COP) may promote improvements in patient morbidity and mortality. Methods Thirty patients scheduled for primary coronary artery bypass grafting were prospectively randomized for perioperative fluid treatment under COP guidance [albumin (ALB), n = 17] or conventional fluid protocols without COP support (control, n = 13). Whole-blood samples were drawn at four different time intervals including (A) anesthesia induction, (B) 10 minutes after the initiation of cardiopulmonary bypass, (C) at the completion of sternal skin approximation, and (D) 3 hours after admission to the cardiac intensive care unit. Interleukin 6 (IL-6) and IL-8 were measured by immunometric, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays as well as C-reactive protein. Colloid osmotic pressure values were measured using a colloid osmometer. Results As compared with conventional fluid protocols, the patients treated in the intervention (ALB) group received significantly less total perioperative fluid [7893.6 (1874.5) vs 10,754.8 (2403.9), P = 0.001], and this relationship remained after controlling for age, sex, and The Society of Thoracic Surgeons risk score (β = −0.5, t = −3.1, P = 0.005). Colloid osmotic pressure values were significantly higher in the ALB group at time point D after surgery (P = 0.03). There were no significant differences in IL-6, IL-8, and C-reactive protein values between the groups at any of the time blood draw intervals. Perioperative outcomes were evaluated by treatment group. For both groups, the incidence of perioperative morbidity was low and did not differ by treatment group. Conclusions The use of COP-guided fluid resuscitation was associated with a significant reduction in perioperative fluid demand. However, patients prescribed to COP-guided fluid therapy did not experience a reduction in whole-body inflammation or improved surgical outcome as compared with conventional fluid management techniques.

          Will the Extravascular Method be a Game Changer for ICD Therapy?       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Medtronic is aiming for a slightly different approach for implantable defibrillator therapy. Instead of using a transvenous approach the firm is looking at an extravascular method for ICD therapy. On Thursday, the Dublin-based company said it was beginning a pilot study of its Extravascular Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (EV ICD) system, in which a lead is placed outside of the heart and veins to deliver lifesaving defibrillation and antitachycardia pacing therapy all in one system.

EV ICD’s size is similar to transvenous ICDs. The first patient implant was performed at Christchurch Hospital in New Zealand, representing the first intended long-term patient use of the Medtronic EV ICD system

“The EV ICD is positioned to compete in the traditional transvenous ICD market, where Medtronic is the industry leader, as well as the market for non-transvenous devices,” Mike Marinaro, vice president and general manager of the Cardiac Rhythm Management business at Medtronic, told MD+DI via email. “Our early research and acute feasibility studies using the system components tell us that an extravascular ICD may offer all of the capability of transvenous devices, and advantages over other devices in pacing capabilities, including antitachycardia pacing; device size; and longevity.”

In May, Medtronic confirmed the feasibility of its EV-ICD system. The company presented feasibility study data during a late-breaking session at the Heart Rhythm 2018.

The company is now focused on planning the next steps for the technology.

“Our path to approval will require a pivotal clinical trial,” Marinaro said. “We are in discussions with regulatory bodies to determine trial design, and these decisions will affect the timeline for the pivotal trial and subsequent work.”

The device could add to an already strong performing Cardiac Rhythm and Heart Failure division. During Medtronic’s most recent conference call Omar Ishrak, the company’s chairman and CEO cited product rollouts and launches being the reason the division experienced significant growth.

“In Cardiac Rhythm & Heart Failure, we had a very good quarter in pacing with high-single-digit growth driven by the continued rollout of our Micra Transcatheter Pacing System, as well as the recent launch of the Azure next-generation family of pacemakers,” Ishrak said, according to a Seeking Alpha Transcript.

          Microsoft to stop hosting Gab if anti-Semitic posts stay      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

San Francisco, Aug 10 (IANS) Gab, a US-based social network of choice for the far right, is facing suspension of hosting services from Microsoft over two anti-Semitic posts, the media reported.

"Gab's hosting provider, Microsoft Azure, has given us 48 hours to take action on two posts, or they will pull our service and Gab will go down for weeks/months," Gab Founder Andrew Torba said in a post on Thursday.

According to an email, attached by Torba, the posts violate Microsoft policy.

The named posts were written by Patrick Little, a Senate candidate who was ejected from a GOP convention in May for anti-Semitic views, The Verge reported.

While pledging to remove the posts, Little described the complaint as "a violation of our rights as Americans."

After receiving a third-party complaint about the content, Microsoft concluded that the posts were in violation of Azure's acceptable use policy.

"We believe we have an important responsibility to ensure that our services are not abused by people and groups seeking to incite violence," a Microsoft spokesperson was quoted as saying.

          FACE: Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Awareness Campaign Increasing Exposure      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
imageObjective The aims of this study are to identify screening, treatment, and referral practices of primary care physicians (PCPs) for patients with pelvic floor disorders (PFDs) and evaluate awareness of the Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS) subspecialty. Methods We conducted a cross-sectional survey of PCPs using a random sample of 1005 American College of Physicians members, stratified by demographic region. Electronic survey content included awareness of FPMRS certification, comfort diagnosing and treating PFDs, and PFD referral patterns for PCPs. Results The 399 survey respondents were predominately male and of diverse ages, geographic distribution, and experience level. Forty-eight percent were aware of the FPMRS subspecialty, 31% of FPMRS board certification, and 25% of American Urogynecologic Society. Less than one third screened for PFDs, only two thirds were comfortable diagnosing urinary complaints, and even fewer felt comfortable diagnosing pelvic organ prolapse and fecal incontinence (FI). Eighty-five percent recommended pelvic floor exercises for stress urinary incontinence and referred to urology (29%) or FPMRS (25%) as second-line therapy, whereas 55% recommended medication/fiber for FI and referred to gastroenterology/colorectal surgery (31%) and FPMRS (2%) as second-line therapy. Primary care physicians referred to colorectal surgery for FI (60%), to Ob/Gyn for obstetric anal sphincter injury (38%) and pelvic organ prolapse (57%), and to urology for microscopic hematuria (80%), overactive bladder (60%), recurrent urinary tract infection (75%), stress urinary incontinence (48%), and voiding dysfunction (84%). Conclusions Most PCPs do not routinely screen for PFDs, and fewer feel comfortable treating. The majority is unaware of FPMRS and American Urogynecologic Society and more commonly refers PFD patients to other specialists.
          Surgical Anatomy of Vaginal Hysterectomy—Impact of a Resident-Constructed Simulation Model      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
imageObjectives Obstetrics and gynecology residents are less prepared to perform vaginal hysterectomy (VH), despite its advantages over other hysterectomy routes. The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and Council on Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology have prioritized simulation training in VH. Our objective was to improve residents’ understanding of surgical anatomy of VH using a resident-constructed, low-cost, low-fidelity model. Methods A single simulation session was held in November 2016. Residents constructed a pelvic model, guided by 2 surgeons. A pretest and a posttest were administered. Experienced-based responses were tabulated for frequencies and contents. Improvement on knowledge-based questions was assessed using McNemar’s test. Results Of 20 residents, 16 completed the pretest and 14 (70%) completed pretests and posttests. One hundred percent of postgraduate year (PGY)-4 had performed greater than 10 VH (11–21) and 75% of PGY-3 had performed 5 to 12 VH. Although 75% of PGY-3 and 100% of PGY-4 felt comfortable performing VH, baseline knowledge of essential surgical anatomy of VH was low (65.8%). The PGY-3 and -4 group (n=8) experienced a mean improvement of 24.4% (mean pretest score 65.8% vs mean posttest score 90%; 95% confidence interval, +14.1% to +33.3%, P=0.0005). The PGY-1 and -2 groups (n=6) experienced a mean improvement of 43.3% (mean pretest score, 41.7% vs mean posttest score, 85%; 95% confidence interval, +26.7% to +59.2%, P=0.001). After the session, all residents reported improved understanding surgical anatomy of VH and “more hands-on sessions” was the most frequently requested teaching aid. Conclusions Residents desire additional model-based simulation training in VH, and such structured, model-based simulations can identify and address gaps in resident knowledge of surgical anatomy of this important operation.

Synopsis:

The Former Assassin by Nikki Stern
Susan Foster wants to retire. Her boss wants her dead.
After decades as Victor Kemp’s off-the books killer, Suzanne finally quits. Not until five years later does Kemp discover how thoroughly she’s deceived him. Determined to punish her, he tracks her to Wales to watch her die. Instead, he walks into a trap.
Believing themselves safe at last, Suzanne and her family relocate to London, where she hopes to find the peace that has eluded her for so long. Her son is engaged to a nobleman’s daughter; her husband has a good job with British Intelligence. Yet she still struggles with restless dreams and the premonition that her nemesis has survived.
He has: Kemp, though severely injured, is rebuilding his empire and plotting revenge. He’s prepared to risk everything to end the former assassin. He may not be the only one.
Suzanne has no choice: to protect those she loves, she will be forced to kill again. Assassins, it seems, can never retire.

Read an excerpt:

Today is not a good day to die.
No day is, not really. We humans are hard-wired to survive. By most standards, though, this morning is exceptional. The weather is balmy, even for May. The fierce winds that often pound the Welsh coastline have remained offshore. Purple heather blankets the emerald cliffs that encircle Bristol Bay. Small breakers gently lap the shoreline and wash the sand clean of debris. The water sparkles in the sunlight. Shades of azure and aquamarine yield to cyan and lapis further out. In the distance, the sea meets a cerulean sky just where the earth curves. No slate clouds gather at the horizon. All is calm.
Nothing suggested that today I would find myself on a bench in one of the most breathtaking spots in the world with a gun to my head, held by a predator who speaks just two words: “Don’t move.”

          [DN] Space Force 2K, Gab threatened, Blindness      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Going where no president has gone before, Trump wants Space Force by 2020


North America ------- 10th Aug, 2018


President Donald Trump’s administration on Thursday announced an ambitious plan to usher in a new “Space Force” as the sixth branch of the military by 2020, but the proposal was scorned by opponents and may struggle to get liftoff in a divided Congress.

Trump has strongly championed the idea of creating a space-focused military service with the same stature as the Air Force and the Army, turning his dreams of a “Space Force” into a rallying cry for supporters at political events.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, in an address at the Pentagon, described the Space Force as “an idea whose time has come.”

A Pentagon report released on Thursday included interim steps toward the creation of such an organization. A unified combatant command known as the U.S. Space Command would be formed by the end of 2018, according to a copy reviewed by Reuters.

In a nod to the Air Force’s current role, the Pentagon report recommended that the Space Command be led initially by the commander of Air Force Space Command, who would be dual-hatted.


One of the arguments in favor of devoting more resources to a Space Force or Space Command is that American rivals like Russia and China appear increasingly ready to strike U.S. space-based capabilities in the event of a conflict.

“It is becoming a contested war fighting domain and we have to adapt to that reality,” Mattis said.

The United States is a member of the 1967 Outer Space Treaty, which bars the stationing of weapons of mass destruction in space and only allows for the use of the moon and other celestial bodies for peaceful purposes.

Former astronaut and retired U.S. Navy Captain Mark Kelly on Thursday said that while Pence was right about the threats in outer space, the military was already handling them.

“There is a threat out there but it’s being handled by the U.S. Air Force today. (It) doesn’t make sense to build a whole other level of bureaucracy in an incredibly bureaucratic Department of Defense,” Kelly told MSNBC.

          Zombie game with superpowers      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Had an idea the other day, and after checking I've found no one has done it yet which actually surprised me.

A zombie apocalypse game with Super Powers!

Now I initially thought how best it would be to portray the game, There are a lot of zombie games of varying degree but for this it's best not make it too serious, since it includes super powers.
I came up with a combination of Sunset Overdrive (**** the laws of physics, crazy jumps, weird weapons, entire city to travel through in various ways) with Left 4 Dead 1&2 (endless hordes of zombies, special zombies you've got to be careful of, great fun character dialogue).

It takes place in a city in a world where people can get superpowers, so a person can become a HERO or VILLAIN
So you get to make moral choices through the game, and be a douchebag if you want to (I'm talking Fallout 3 and New Vegas dialogue lines)

You can choose your super power at the beginning; one for combat one for travel.
Super Strength [I haven't done... You Know What... since I got this power. I'm too afraid I'll hurt myself"

Fire Power

Lightning Power

Shadow Power

Tech Suit

Magic {Time to show what Real power is]

more to added later

for Travel
Flight (if you fly too high you'll be shot down with by an anti-air missile and take damage) (fly through zombies, or make an superhero landing for AoE damage)
Super Speed (run though zombies and make them explode)
Custom Vehicle (drive through zombies with added weapons on vehicle)
teleportation (grab and drop zombies from height, drop cars and other things on the zombies)

more to be added later


There are zombies with super powers, they'll be bigger than normal zombies and tougher, different types stick to different areas of the city

There are other survivors in the city, a few with powers that you could help, hinder or recruit.

End goal is either help the city, get the zombies out of the city or rule the city.

You can gather supplies, tech, items etc to trade with the survivors, improve your tech suit, gather/make more magical items etc.


That's all I've really got right now, I'll keep thinking and developing the game including full story, survivors names etc.
If you got any Good suggestions put them in the comments, I'll read them and see if I can put them in the game

          Delivering Real Time Analytics with Sitecore and DataStax      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

In one of myearlier articles, I talked about why your company or organization should adopt Sitecore as your Experience Platform. Its a good platform for users, content authors, and developers to create compelling and engaging digital experiences as well as collect information on website traffic. Machine learning and analytics in personalized content are two of the most compelling features of Sitecore. In today’s world, companies particularly the Fortune 500, require real-time analytics to help drive stakeholder goals.

It’s Tradition

Traditionally Sitecore used MongoDB as their experience database (xDB) of choice for storing and retrieving analytics. However, with the latest version of Sitecore, the company is moving to more options for development teams to use to fit their needs especially if they require real-time analytics. There are now options for using SQL Server’s new provider for NoSQL data. In fact, at the time of the writing, the only option for Sitecore 9 xDB deployment is the SQL Server Provider. The company has planned support for MongoDB but sent a clear message with their change of xDB choice in the latest version. The platform is also looking at expanding to higher end distributed NoSQL databases such as Microsoft Azure CosmosDB. This would require an Azure subscription but would offer features to support distributed analytics.

Why DataStax?

DataStax Enterprise (DSE) is analways-on, distributed cloud database built on Apache Cassandra and designed for the hybrid cloud. Our firm is making the argument that Apache Cassandra, and more importantly DataStax, should be used as your Analytics xDB option if you are building experiences for the Right-Now Economy . These are usually systems which use IoT ( internet of things ) or have global demand from a user audience of hundreds of millions and thus can never fail. That goes double for the analytical operations you run on the real-time data you are storing.

DataStax over the Competition

Cassandra and DataStax clearly outperform MongoDB and other rivals in Throughput by Workload and Load Process benchmarks. They also provide no single point of failure and more consistency models to support high-level operations. Cassandra is completely free and open source and supports both cloud or on-premise (translation you won’t need an Azure subscription like CosmosDB) but the real special sauce is with DataStax. DataStax is a commercial product, however, it is almost always used if Cassandra is being deployed on an enterprise level scale. DSE integrates Cassandra with graph, search, analytics, administration, developer tooling, and monitoring all in one platform. With Mongo or other NoSQL competitors, developers would have to piece together these functionalities with third-party options instead of native out of the box support. Developers can also create Spark jobs and see analytical data or personalize content in real time no matter how many users are viewing the experience. Other systems support Spark, however, they are usually deployed in a master to slave or parent to child relationship providing points of failure for both your users and your analytical operations. Furthermore, they tend to face challenges when an application needs to be global.

Muslim extremists arrested over training kids to commit school shootings


Siraj ibn Wahhaj, the son of a prominent New York City imam, was arrested at a “filthy” compound in New Mexico, where 11 children found there had been trained in how to shoot up schools, prosecutors said in court documents.

Ibn Wahhaj, 39, and four other adults were arrested on Friday and charged with 11 counts of felony child abuse. Ahead of a court hearing on Wednesday, prosecutors asked the judge not to grant him bail, saying he was training the children to commit school shootings, AP reported.

Another male, identified as Lucas Morten, and three women - Jany Leveille, 35, Hujrah Wahhaj, 38, and Subhannah Wahhaj, 35 - were also arrested at the compound.

Authorities raided the compound on Friday after a monthslong search investigating the disappearance of Abdul-ghani Wahhaj, a boy with severe medical issues who went missing from Georgia in December, a child's remains were found on the property, but authorities were working on a positive identification and did not confirm if the remains were that of the missing boy.

The makeshift compound — located near the Colorado border — was found shielded by old tires, wooden pallets and other debris. Upon authorities' arrival, Wahhaj was "heavily armed with an AR15 rifle, five loaded 30 round magazines, and four loaded pistols, including one in his pocket when he was taken down," Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe said.

The sheriff said the children, ages 1 to 15, "looked like third world country refugees not only with no food or fresh water, but with no shoes, personal hygiene and basically dirty rags for clothing.”

The only food investigators found were some potatoes and a box of rice inside a dirty trailer, the sheriff said, adding that the living conditions were “the ugliest looking, filthiest” he’s ever seen.

Hogrefe previously said the occupants of the compound were "most likely heavily armed and considered extremist of the Muslim belief."

In a warrant made public on Monday, Wahhaj told the missing boy's mother that he wanted to perform an "exorcism" on his then-3-year-old son because he was "possessed by the devil." The missing child reportedly suffered from seizures and couldn't walk.

2. A CNN investigation found InfoWars violated Twitter's rules, despite the company's claims otherwise. CNN found that much of the content that to Jones being banned from other platforms had also been posted to Twitter.

3. Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 9 with the same price tag as the iPhone X. The Galaxy Note 9 is Samsung's largest smartphone model to date, with a 6.4-inch screen, and it comes with an S Pen stylus.

4. The SEC is reportedly 'intensifying' its examination of Tesla after Elon Musk tweeted about taking the company private. According to Bloomberg, the agency had already been gathering information about statements Tesla has made regarding sales and manufacturing targets.

5. Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Watch, its $330 answer to the Apple Watch. The Galaxy Watch is a fitness-focused smartwatch. It's waterproof, has LTE connectivity, and gets "several days" of battery life on a single charge.

6. Dropbox crushed Wall Street expectations on earnings, but a key exec, Chief Operating Officer Dennis Woodside, is stepping down. His departure corresponds with Dropbox's lock-up period for employees, which dictates how soon they can sell their stock after a company goes public.

8. Tesla's board may reportedly tell Elon Musk to recuse himself from talks about taking the company private. The board reportedly plans to meet with financial advisors to determine how it will explore the idea of converting Tesla into a private company and has told Musk that he must consult a separate, personal set of advisors.

9. Samsung is partnering with Spotify across all of its devices. It means the music streaming service will be much more integrated into Samsung hardware and services.

          Microsoft threatens to boot the far-right's favorite social network off its cloud over posts that threatened Jews with 'vengeance' (MSFT)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Satya Nadella

  • Microsoft is threatening to kick Gab, a social network popular with the racist far-right, off its cloud hosting service Azure.
  • The company has taken issue with virulently anti-Semitic posts that call for "vengeance" against Jews and the vandalism of Holocaust memorial museums.
  • Microsoft has given Gab a 48-hour deadline to comply.


Microsoft has threatened to kick a social network popular with the racist far-right off its cloud hosting service over anti-Semitic content that advocated genocide and torture of Jews.

Gab, which has been described as "the alt-right's very own Twitter," is hosted on Microsoft's Azure service. But on Thursday, the Seattle-based company said it was considering booting Gab off its network, which would take the social network offline.

In a statement provided to Business Insider, a Microsoft spokesperson said the company had "received a complaint about specific posts on Gab.ai that advocate 'ritual death by torture' and the 'complete annihilation' of all Jews," and that it had determined the content incited violence, "is not protected by the First Amendment, and violates Microsoft Azure's acceptable use policy." 

Multiple users on Gab responded to the news of Microsoft's threat with virulently anti-Semitic messages of their own.

The user behind the two posts in question — which advocate the vandalism of Holocaust memorial museums and discuss in explicit detail a plan for torturing Jews — says he will delete the posts, but as of publication, they remain live on Gab. Microsoft has given Gab 48 hours to take them down.

The furor comes at a time of intense debate over the tech companies' responsibility for the content that appears on their platforms. Facebook and YouTube have recently bowed to public pressure and booted notorious conspiracy theorist Alex Jones from their social networks.

Many Gab users are outraged about Microsoft's actions, painting themselves as martyrs for the cause of free speech — but one of the posts in question is arguably a direct incitement to violence that calls for "vengeance" for the "debt the jew owes the world."

Gab co-founder Andrew Torba issued a statement on the incident from his profile on the site. 

"To the lying, sophist, mainstream media political activists who call themselves 'journalists' reaching out: we are not doing ANY interviews with Fake News," the statement reads in part. It goes on to say that Gab will only speak with Scott Budman, a reporter with NBC Bay Area News. 

We've reached out to Gab for further comment and will update if we hear back.

Here's the full statement from Microsoft:

Microsoft received a complaint about specific posts on Gab.ai that advocate ‘ritual death by torture’ and the ‘complete eradication’ of all Jews. After an initial review, we have concluded that this content incites violence, is not protected by the First Amendment, and violates Microsoft Azure’s acceptable use policy. Microsoft notified Gab.ai of this substantial concern and advised that it remove this content or respond to Microsoft within 48 hours, or potentially risk suspension of its service on Azure.

We believe we have an important responsibility to ensure that our services are not abused by people and groups seeking to incite violence against others. Our policies rightly prohibit this type of content, and we expect Gab.ai to abide by these policies if it wishes to use our service. Gab.ai is of course free to choose otherwise and work with another cloud service provider or host this content itself. If it wishes to make that choice, we will provide it with a reasonable amount of time, in this instance longer than 48 hours, to transition its content elsewhere before its access to Azure is terminated. But we will stand by our policy and insist that Gab.ai remove what is unlawful and hateful content.

          Microsoft hints at software isolation chambers for Windows 10 Enterprise      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
"InPrivate Desktop" mode to ensure unexpected code can't touch OS.

Microsoft appears to be working on a new technology that will isolate untrusted software by placing it into a virtual machine.

Windows-watchers have spotted the new feature, called "InPrivate Desktop", in discussions about Windows 10 previews.

Since-deleted Microsoft documents said it “provides admins a way to launch a throwaway sandbox for secure, one-time execution of untrusted software.

“This is basically an in-box, speedy VM (virtual machine) that is recycled when you close the app," the document says.

If accurate, the document signals that Microsoft is adopting a new approach to endpoint security that’s had a recent resurgence in the data centre.

It now looks like Microsoft’s plan is to leverage the desktop version of its Hyper-V hypervisor, which is present in most versions of Windows 10 but requires knowledge of some deep settings to enable.

Hyper-V on the desktop is mostly used by developers who need VMs running operating systems other than Windows 10.

InPrivate Desktop appears to create a guest Windows 10 VM without an end-user needing to know that Hyper-V even exists, never mind how to drive it.

The new feature does so in order to isolate software in its own instance of Windows 10 before it can alter the host PC, which is what most malware tries to do.

Others like this approach too: VMware and Citrix both have data centre products that inspect VMs to ensure they’re behaving as expected. If they’re not, the VM is isolated from the host.

Security vendor Carbon Black isolates whole endpoints to stop one infected machine delivering a dodgy payload to others.

Details are scarce at this stage but if Microsoft uses this technology to automatically isolate any executable that’s not trusted or expected on a PC, it will improve Windows 10’s security by making it harder for unexpected software to get a toehold in a PC.

It could also be a handy adjunct to Windows 10 S, the new mode for Windows 10 that only allows users to run software from the Microsoft store.

However, there’s a risk that hardening Windows 10 in this way could irritate endpoint security vendors by allowing Microsoft to make a case that businesses can contemplate a little less on-PC protection.

Accepting that argument would not be wise: malware makers long ago mastered the trick of detecting if their wares are running in a VM so that they can prevent white hat hackers from watching it try to escape isolation.

One more thing: in mid-2017 Microsoft established bug bounties for Hyper-V. And fair enough, too, given that Azure uses it for countless cloudy VMs.

But perhaps Microsoft was also making sure the hypervisor was ready to take on a new role on the desktop.

          West Virginia and the Voatz “blockchain” voting system ― scaling and security ...      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

In May, West Virginia ran a limited pilot programme using Voatz’ “blockchain” voting system, which Iwrote about in June ― it’s actually a mobile phone voting system, with a blockchain tacked on the side. This was for military people who were eligible to vote in Harrison and Monongalia Counties, but were stationed overseas.

West Virginia were sufficiently impressed to use the Voatz system again, for this November’s mid-term elections. This was reported on local WVNews sites at the end of July, but exploded when CNN reported it yesterday.

And my June post took off again, my Twitter mentions melted, and I was quoted in a Vanity Fair article today on the kerfuffle. So what’s going on here?


West Virginia and the Voatz “blockchain” voting system ― scaling and security ...
Why would you run a mobile phone vote?

Mobile phone voting sounds like an obviously terrible idea in all sorts of ways. But they need to solve a genuine problem:

“Think of a soldier on a hillside in Afghanistan or a sailor under the polar ice caps. They don’t have access to U.S. mail. Sometimes they’re in a classified area such as a nuclear sub or simply don’t have access to scanners, fax machines and that sort of thing. They do have access to the internet, mobile devices. It’s a tremendous solution to a very difficult problem and with West Virginia having the highest per capita volunteers in the U.S. military, we owe it to them.” “I’ve had voters who have overnighted to our jurisdiction and paid over $50 to do so, and it still didn’t get back to us by voting day.”

The voters are identified by biometrics. The Voatz system will be limited to military personnel on deployment ― people whose biometrics are thoroughly known and documented. It’s entirely optional, and soldiers can use a conventional paper vote instead if they want to.

The pilot programme in May wasn’t huge ― literally 11 voters from Monongalia County used the system. “I think all 11 military voters who used it in our county were pleased with it.”

Mobile phone voting: “a horrific idea”

Obviously, Voatz want to expand mobile phone voting. But the notion is controversial, to say the least:

“Mobile voting is a horrific idea,” Joseph Lorenzo Hall, the chief technologist at the Center for Democracy and Technology, told CNN in an email. “It’s internet voting on people’s horribly secured devices, over our horrible networks, to servers that are very difficult to secure without a physical paper record of the vote.” Marian K. Schneider, president of the election integrity watchdog group Verified Voting, was even more blunt. Asked if she thought mobile voting is a good idea, she said, “The short answer is no.”

If mobile phone voting can be usably secure at all, it will only be in a small and highly constrained system such as these pilot programmes.

How the blockchain bit works

The “blockchain” part of Voatz’ system is functionally superfluous ― it’s a ledger of the votes, kept on a four-node Hyperledger instance run entirely by the company. So it’s another single-user “blockchain” being used as a clustered database.

I must note that Voatz disagree with this characterisation, referring me to the FAQ on wvexperience.voatz.com (go to the page, click “Blockchain & Security” on the left):

Once the voter is verified, Election jurisdictions start the process by sending a qualified voter a mobile ballot. Contained in the mobile ballot are “tokens” ― think of them as potential votes ― which are cryptographically tied to a candidate or ballot measure question. The number of tokens a given voter receives is the same as the number of ovals he or she would have received on a paper ballot handed out at the voter’s precinct or sent through the mail. The voter makes selections on the Voatz app on their smartphone. As they make selections, it alters the tokens with their selections (like filling in a ballot oval). Overvotes are prevented, as each voter only receives a total number of tokens as they have potential votes. Once submitted, the votes for choices on the ballot are verified by multiple distributed verifying servers called “verifiers” or validating nodes. Upon verification, the token is debited (i.e. subtracted) from the voter’s ledger and credited (i.e. added) to the candidate’s ledger. The blockchain on every verifier is automatically updated and the process repeats as additional voters submit their selections. The Voatz blockchain is built using the HyperLedger blockchain framework. The minimum number of validating nodes used is 4. These get expanded to 16 for the pilot as needed depending on the anticipated number of participants. Additional scaling is planned for the future.

Though I still think this constitutes a private clustered database ― and certainly as long as Voatz control all verification nodes, or even if they control who gets to run a verification node.

The token arrangement seems bizarrely convoluted and gratuitous ― cryptographic tokens are widely used, work well, and they don’t need a blockchain. This still feels to me like implementing a naturally-centralised system on a blockchain because you want to say you used a blockchain.

The functional aspect of the blockchain bit is promotional:

Secretary of State deputy legal counsel and elections officer Donald Kersey said this means votes on Voatz become immutable and tamper proof, with records virtually impossible to crack.

Anyone reading this knows that none of that automatically follows from bolting a blockchain onto the side of your system.

There’s also a huge problem with the idea of recording the votes themselves on a permanent ledger. Joseph Lorenzo Hall in Vanity Fair asks you to “imagine that in 20 years, the entire contents of your ballot are decryptable and publicly available” ― rather than on pieces of paper that can’t be traced back to you personally.

Voatz in Utah, April 2018 ― 1400 voters go back to using paper

One thing that has to work with absolutely 100% reliability is voters being able to vote at all.

Tony Adams notes the 14 April 2018 Republican County Convention in Utah County, Utah, a caucus with about 1400 voters. They tried using Voatz, and it scaled so badly that they had to revert to using paper ballots.

Here’s some voter reviews:

This app is terrible. Good thing there were backup paper ballots … seriously awful Just wow! What an epic failure of an app. I had to sign up several times, validate, scan and wait wait wait for a “connection issue”. Me and the 1400 ish Delegates ended up doing paper ballots which made our convention go several hours overtime. After going through the lengthy and counter-intuitive verification process, I could not understand the directions and ended up calling them over the phone before the Utah County Republican precinct caucus meeting. I was exited to vote and still be with my kids. When voting was supposed to happen the server was over loaded. Eventually the app stopped working. I had to reinstall and reverify. Could not vote. The next day I come to find out my precinct gave up on the app and just used paper ballots instead. Major let down. Bye the way it also failed during many local caucus meetings a few weeks before. Out of 273 caucus meetings it only worked for three of them. Voatz’ security embarrassments

Election manipulation is, of course, huge news at the moment. So Voatz should have expected tremendous scrutiny of their security and technological transparency, in every detail.

It’s unfortunate they had an old server still up ― always remember to stop your old AWS instances!― for Kevin Beaumont to find at a glance:

The Voatz website is running on a box with out of date SSH, Apache (multiple CVSS 9+), php etc. Pop3 to the Internet, NTP, PHP3, Plesk from 2009. The database (on Azure) has an admin panel on port 8080, no SSL. I’m off to bed.


West Virginia and the Voatz “blockchain” voting system ― scaling and security ...
The United States needs some form of vetting process for online voting in elections. I’m a foreign dude with an avatar of a cowboy porg riding a porg dog on Twitter who appears to have done more investigation of the security implications of this than anybody. Bonkers, America.

If a startup (I’m sure they’re nice people btw) with 2m in funding approaches and says they have biometric security and Blockchain it still need independent vetting, at least to level a crab paste company would get a HR provider. There needs to be oversight here.

I can’t even find a Voatz CISO (or security person) to report stuff to. They have long unpatched boxes and weird services online, this wouldn’t pass a crab paste company pentest.

I used to work for a crab paste company with little to no IT budget, I wouldn’t have accepted this into production, but apparently the world’s most prosperous nation will.

Voatz say this was an old test site ― but leaving exploitable old servers up is a gateway to your new stuff. Did they check that nobody could get from the old server to the new servers? Are they in different Amazon VPCs?

Crucially, I find it unlikely that if you're running a Plesk from 2009 and a run of the mill poorly written PHP app on the user facing site that your security is all that great on the backend. There's at least someone in the org that is totally fine with an exploitable site.

― Keith Gable (@ZiggyTheHamster) August 7, 2018

Voatz claim the West Virginia election site was audited by Security Innovation , Ingalls Information Security , Hacker One , Comodo/HackerGuardian and Qualys SSL Labs.

Kevin asked them about this, and says that “One of the companies listed as providing a security audit says they did not provide a security audit.”

Hacker One just means Voatz have a bug bounty programme ― though I couldn’t find where they’ve listed it.

Qualys just provides a free SSL server test for any public website ― and Voatz do seem to mean the free SSL test, as the free test of their website was the link they provided to Vanity Fair as a sample of their security practices.

In fact, Voatz tweeted this quick SSL server test as evidence their servers had passed penetration tests.

Yes, you can do a quick self verification SSL test here to get a sample of that https://t.co/7GEZRPqdXX

We always appreciate constructive feedback to improve.

Summary

To be fair, the Twitter is probably just the social media person, having an absolutely terrible day ― not one of the technical people. But they need to get the techies on the job straight away.

The failure to scale in Utah is a serious problem, though overseas military voters are likely to be a small enough use case for the system to cope.

But mobile phone voting worries people a lot.

Voatz need to put out public reports ― as fully detailed and transparent as is feasible ― on every aspect of the entire system, as soon as they can.

Treat every scornful tweet today as a pointer to an opportunity to excel. A chance to restore confidence.

I can see what you are saying. Where I work we are easily 20 years behind. We still actively support Windows Forms applications. But having said that like you I do study and keep pushing as best I can new ideas. But I think I have a bad feeling about your analysis. A lot of those upper management types have about zero understanding what those buzz words mean? They hear Docker and go that is new and exciting and think we need to do that. Yes you maybe need to do that but do they young guys really know the reason, how to break a large process into small enough components to really see the advantage? I wonder. Also this rush forward misses one very large point. If your org has not learned how to create SOLID software. If you are still avoiding Unit Testing and TDD in general, your producing crap and take that same crap software and try to use CI/CD, Docker, Azure Functions and your just compounding the mess you created over the years and increasing your technical deficit.

          波兰民间舞蹈--玛祖卡(Mazurek)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   



       玛祖卡(波兰语:Mazurek),原为波兰一种民间舞蹈,其动作有滑步、成对旋转、女子围绕男子轻快跑步等,形式现在仍保留在许多芭蕾舞舞剧中,产生于18世纪,其音乐经过肖邦等人的发展后,已成为古典音乐中一种经典舞曲。

       玛祖卡,英文Mazurka的译音,它是波兰的一种民间舞蹈,其动作有滑步、成对旋转、女人围绕男子作轻快跑步等。

       在波兰舞蹈中,以中部的玛佐夫舍地区的民间舞蹈"玛祖尔"(mazhu'er)最具有代表性,现今在各大芭蕾舞剧中出现的"玛祖卡"舞,就是源于波兰的玛祖尔,已经演变为节奏鲜明、舞步豪迈萧洒、气质高贵典雅的舞台表演形式,与至今流传的民间"玛祖尔"有了很大的区别。

       性格舞蹈,是芭蕾舞剧的一个重要的组成部分。在古典芭蕾舞基本训练教学体系中,性格舞蹈是相对独立的一门专业课程,其内容是规范化了19-20世纪著名的欧洲民间舞蹈素材。性格舞蹈的法语原文是danse de caractere ,英语称作character dance。

      "玛祖卡"是性格舞中一个最具有代表民族民间舞会与特点鲜明体裁的民族民间舞蹈,在波兰"玛祖卡"是最具有体现波兰人民历史、文化、地理背景及其性格的民族民间舞蹈,并在欧洲芭蕾舞剧中作为性格舞蹈被一直保留至今,并成为世界各国舞蹈学院,在性格舞教学中必修和掌握的一种民族民间舞蹈载体的性格舞。

       历史悠久的波兰人民能歌善舞,民族民间歌舞的形式丰富多彩,风格浓郁,在东欧民族民间歌舞艺术中享有着其重要的历史地位。

       波兰于十八世纪末逐渐形成封建王国。在十五世纪是古代文化的辉煌时期,十八世纪后期被沙俄、普鲁士和奥地利三次瓜分;1918年建立共和国之后又遭希特勒之侵,到1945年才建立了民族统一政府。在历史岁月的河流中,波兰人民所具有的开朗、直率及坚忍不拔的性格,以它独特的民族民间歌舞形式表现出来。"玛祖卡"就充分表现了当时波兰人民的聪明与智慧。

       在波兰舞蹈中,以其中部的玛佐夫舍地区的民间舞蹈"玛祖尔"(Mazurek)最具有代表性,现今在各大芭蕾舞剧中出现的"玛祖卡"舞,就是源于波兰的 "玛祖尔",现已经演变为节奏鲜明、舞步豪迈潇洒、气质高贵典雅的艺术舞台表演形式,与至今流传的民间"玛祖尔"舞蹈有了很大的区别。

      "玛祖卡"是波兰民间舞曲的名称,18世纪流行于欧洲各国。"玛祖卡"的音乐节奏为中速的三拍子,重音变化较多,以落在第二、三拍上较为常见,情绪活泼热烈。舞蹈表现为男女双人集体舞。男舞者是一个重要角色,他选择舞步的花样、动作,不断变换着舞步速度;他高傲、带着军人的风度;女舞者则以优美的身姿,被男舞伴领着,舞步轻盈地在舞池中飞跑。舞蹈动作有滑步、脚跟碰击、男子单腿跪、成对旋转、女孩绕男子轻快跑步等。

      "玛祖卡"舞步以它的特殊节奏型而使初学者觉得比较难掌握,需要经过一段时间的练习,才能把各种舞步动作和花样巧妙地组合在一起。在芭蕾舞学科的"性格舞"课中,"玛祖卡"舞步也是要运用较多的课时量来进行练习才能较好地掌握它。

       在芭蕾舞剧《天鹅湖》母后为王子选新娘的第三幕里,就有波兰的来宾为王子献上的一段精彩"玛祖卡"舞。八对男女舞者,合着三拍子的轻快玛祖卡舞曲,在领舞的带领下,做着各种花样、变化着各种舞步;男演员身着民族军服,以稳健的阅兵步伐,展示着男性高傲、帅气的风度,女演员则穿着华丽的民族服装,踏着飘逸的轻跑步,展示着女性柔美的身姿;整个舞蹈充斥着异国情调的华彩气息,令人眩目。此外,在歌剧《伊万·苏三宁》、芭蕾舞剧《雷蒙达》中,都有精彩的表现。

       波兰民间舞中,还有南部的克拉科夫省的克拉克维亚舞(kelakeweiyake),音乐以二拍子为主,轻快有力,并富有跳跃性节奏。舞步以骑马行进似的横跨步为主要特点,男子不时地做一些大跳、空中击腿等技巧动作;女子动作较为轻柔,与男子的阳刚之气形成鲜明对比。而位于霍伯奇诺地区的奥别列克舞(aobielieke),更以特性技巧表演著称,如快速旋转、托举、旋子、跳绳等,舞蹈活泼快速,充满着自豪与激情。

      "玛祖卡"、"克拉克维亚克"、"奥别列克舞"自18世纪起在欧洲各国流传至今,已有几百年历史;并被芭蕾舞编导们以此为素材运用于芭蕾舞剧之中。

       玛祖卡起源于波兰中部玛佐夫舍地区,其名也很可能来源于该地名。18世纪后,玛祖卡舞风靡全欧洲,成为各国宫廷和上层社会舞会中常见的一种舞蹈。列夫·托尔斯泰在《安娜·卡列尼娜[2]》、屠格涅夫在《父与子》[3]中均有关于玛祖卡舞的情节。

       玛祖卡是一种男女集体舞,由男舞者占据主导地位,决定舞步种类、轻重和速度,而女舞者则以轻快的舞步围绕男舞者。玛祖卡主要的舞步以滑步、脚跟碰击、双人旋转和男舞者单腿脆地,女舞者绕行为主,舞步比较复杂。

       柴可夫斯基在其芭蕾舞剧《天鹅湖》和《睡美人》中均安排了大段的玛祖卡,因此玛祖卡舞步时至今日亦是芭蕾舞者必学的舞步。

       玛祖卡音乐类似于华尔兹,为3/4拍,但常在第二拍予以加重。著名作曲家如肖邦、格林卡、亚历山大·鲍罗丁、德彪西等均创作过大量的玛祖卡音乐。

       今日的波兰国歌就是一首玛祖卡舞曲。

    《玛祖卡舞曲》是肖邦另一个独特的创作领域。在整个钢琴音乐文献中,提起《玛祖卡》,首先想到的就是肖邦。其他作曲家也有《玛祖卡》。但唯有肖邦写了大量的、闪耀着特异光彩的《玛祖卡》。在肖邦本人的作品中,《玛祖卡》也很特殊。一是这批作品,最具波兰泥土的芳香。另外,这是他较少带有戏剧性、悲剧性成分的创作领域之一。

       玛祖卡舞,是波兰玛祖维亚地方的民间舞蹈。它的音乐,都是三拍子的,典型的节奏是: 此外还有库亚维亚克舞曲和奥别列克舞曲也都是三拍子的。肖邦的《玛祖卡舞曲》,是集合上述三种舞曲的特点创作出来的。玛祖卡舞曲的典型节奏,在肖邦《玛祖卡舞曲》[4]中经常显露,但肖邦是出神入化地应用它,远不是刻板地重复民间节奏。旋律,肖邦是天才地吸取民间音乐的精华,按照高度专业化的艺术标准创造出来的。和声、调式更有肖邦独出心裁的创造。尽管如此,《玛祖卡舞曲》的波兰乡土风格毫不减弱;相反,是以更高雅、更诗意的风度,婷婷玉立于钢琴音乐的百花园之中。评论家们说,《玛祖卡舞曲》是肖邦对故乡、土地、人民和对人民光辉精神的生动感觉,是波兰人民的"整个灵魂"。

       由于《玛祖卡舞曲》是这么波兰化的音乐,有位波兰钢琴家说只有波兰人才能弹好。然而,值得中国人自豪的一件事是,1955年在华沙举行了第五届肖邦国际钢琴比赛,中国钢琴家傅聪不但获得了第三名,而且还得了《玛祖卡》的最佳演奏奖。

          12 beaches in Europe that are best in the fall, without the crowds or peak temperatures      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

sunbeds at elafonissi beach in Crete, Greece European beachesFredrik Rubensson/Flickr/CC BY-SA 2.0

  • Europe has some of the best beaches in the world, but during the summer they're more likely be packed with people.
  • To avoid the crowds and oppressive heat, plan your European beach vacation for September or October. 
  • From Cyprus to England, you can find quieter coasts for sunbathing and swimming in the fall.
  • These 12 spots offer expansive views and nearby activities like hiking and sightseeing. 

Europe's vast and varied coastline offers beaches for all, whether you're into all-out resorts or quiet little coves. But summer can be an oppressive time to visit this continent, with crowds flocking to the sparkling waters of the Med to get their sun fix and temperatures edging into almost triple digits.

Thankfully, September through October brings cooler days and quieter coasts, and it's all still as gorgeous. If you're booking a coast trip, these are Europe's best beaches in the fall.

El Charco Verde, La Palma, Canary Islands (Spain)

Off the coast of Africa but part of Spain, the most striking thing about La Palma is the black-sand beaches peppering its coastline. El Charco Verde is a calm little cove with just a small bar selling snacks and a wooden boardwalk connecting the footpath at either side of the beach. It's a blissful place to spend a sunny day, and there's ample opportunity for exceptional hiking nearby.

 



San Ciprianu, Corsica (France)

A long crescent-shaped stretch of golden sand makes this one of Corsica's best beaches. The azure Tyrrhenian Sea — averaging around 70ºF in October — makes for a pleasant swim, but if you're after something more thrilling, rent a small catamaran or kayak to take to the water. San Ciprianu faces southeast, meaning early risers will be rewarded with stunning sunrises over the sea.

 



Ksamil (Albania)

Artur Malinowski/Flickr

Few Europeans know that Albania is a spectacular beach destination, and those that do arrive in high summer, so fall is pleasingly quiet. Rather than just one beach, Ksamil has a collection of pretty coves and bays, all with white sand and crystalline waters. For maximum seclusion, swim out to one of the tiny, uninhabited islands between Ksamil and the Greek island of Corfu directly opposite. Don't miss the well-preserved Roman ruins of Butrint nearby.

imageThe authors evaluate the temporal progression of health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in men treated hormonally with surgical or medical castration, as well as to see if either treatment would be associated with a greater impact on patients' quality of life. The authors assessed general and prostate-targeted HRQOL with two self-administered, validated instruments (the RAND 36-Item Health Survey and the UCLA Prostate Cancer Index) in a longitudinal, observational study of 63 men newly diagnosed with metastatic prostate cancer and treated with bilateral orchiectomy or combined androgen blockade with leuprolide and flutamide. Patients completed the two HRQOL instruments by mail at baseline and at 3- and 6-month intervals after initiation of treatment. Significant improvements were demonstrated in 10 of 14 HRQOL domains for all men during the first 12 months. These include all eight of the general HRQOL domains and the disease-specific domains that address bowel function. The authors identified no differences in any of the general or prostate-targeted HRQOL domains when comparing men who underwent orchiectomy versus combined androgen blockade. Patients with metastatic prostate cancer can be informed that general and prostate-specific HRQOL will be similar, regardless of whether they choose medical or surgical castration, and that health status will likely remain stable or improve during the initial months of treatment. Physicians must make patients aware of both the quantity and quality of life they can expect with advanced prostate cancer, and must actively involve them in their treatment decisions.

Embedded computing has passed—more or less unscathed—through many technology shifts and marketing fashions. But the most recent—the rise of edge computing—could mean important new possibilities and challenges.

So what is edge computing (Figure 1)? The cynic might say it is just a grab for market share by giant cloud companies that have in the past struggled in the fragmented embedded market, but now see their chance. That theory goes something like this.

Figure 1. Computing at the network edge puts embedded systems in a whole new world.

With the concept of the Internet of Things came a rather naïve new notion of embedded architecture: all the embedded system’s sensors and actuators would be connected directly to the Internet—think smart wall switch and smart lightbulb—and all the computing would be done in the cloud. Naturally, this proved wildly impractical for a number of reasons, so the gurus of the IoT retreated to a more tenable position: some computing had to be local, even though the embedded system was still very much connected to the Internet.

Since the local processing would be done at the extreme periphery of the Internet, where IP connectivity ended and private industrial networks or dedicated connections began, the cloud- and network-centric folks called it edge computing. They saw the opportunity to lever their command of the cloud and network resources to redefine embedded computing as a networking application, with edge computing as its natural extension.

A less cynical and more useful view looks at edge computing as one facet of a new partitioning problem that the concurrence of cloud computing, widespread broadband access, and some innovations in LTE cellular networks have created. Today, embedded systems designers must, from requirements definition on through the design process, remember that there are several very different processing sites available to them (Figure 2). There is the cloud. There is the so-called fog. And there is the edge. Partitioning tasks and data among these sits has become a necessary skill to the success of an embedded design project. If you don’t use the new computing resources wisely, you will be vulnerable to a competitor who does—not only in terms of features, performance, and cost advantages to be gained, but in consideration of the growing value of data that can be collected from embedded systems in operation.

.Figure 2. Edge computing offers the choice of three different kinds of processing sites.

The Joy of Partitioning

Unfortunately, partitioning is not often a skill embedded-system designers cultivate. Traditional embedded designs employ a single processor, or at worst a multi-core SoC with an obvious division of labor amongst the cores.

But edge computing creates a new scale of difficulty. There are several different kinds of processing sites, each with quite distinct characteristics. And the connections between processors are far more complicated than the nearly transparent inter-task communications of shared-memory multicore systems. So, doing edge computing well requires a rather formal partitioning process. It begins with defining the tasks and identifying their computing, storage, bandwidth, and latency requirements. Then the process continues by characterizing the compute resources you have available, and the links between them. Finally, partitioning must map tasks onto processors and inter-task communications onto links so that the system requirements are met. This is often an iterative process that at best refines the architecture and at worst turns into a protracted, multi-party game of Whack-a-Mole. It is helpful, perhaps, to look at each of these issues: tasks, processing and storage sites, and communications links, in more detail.

The Tasks

There are several categories of tasks in a traditional embedded system, and a couple of categories that have recently become important for many designs. Each category has its own characteristic needs in computing, storage, I/O bandwidth, and task latency.

In any embedded design there are supervisory and housekeeping tasks that are necessary, but are not particularly compute- or I/O- intensive, and that have no hard deadlines. This category includes most operating-system services, user interfaces, utilities, system maintenance and update, and data logging.

A second category of tasks with very different characteristics is present in most embedded designs. These tasks directly influence the physical behavior of the system, and they do have hard real-time deadlines, often because they are implementing algorithms within feedback control loops responsible for motion control or dynamic process control. Or they may be signal-processing or signal interpretation tasks that lie on a critical path to a system response, such as object recognition routines behind a camera input.

Often these tasks don’t have complex I/O needs: just a stream or two of data in and one or two out. But today these data rates can be extremely high, as in the case of multiple HD cameras on a robot or digitized radar signals coming off a target-acquisition and tracking radar. Algorithm complexity has traditionally been low, held down by the history of budget-constrained embedded designs in which a microcontroller had to implement the digital transfer function in a control loop. But as control systems adopt more modern techniques, including stochastic state estimation, model-based control, and, recently, insertion of artificial intelligence into control loops, in some designs the complexity of algorithms inside time-critical loops has exploded. As we will see, this explosion scatters shrapnel over a wide area.

The most important issue for all these time-critical tasks is that the overall delay from sensor or control input to actuator response be below a set maximum latency, and often that it lies within a narrow jitter window. That makes partitioning of these tasks particularly interesting, because it forces designers to consider both execution time—fully laden with indeterminacies, memory access and storage access delays—and communications latencies together. The fastest place to execute a complex algorithm may be unacceptably far from the system.

We also need to recognize a third category of tasks. These have appeared fairly recently for many designers, and differ from both supervisory and real-time tasks. They arise from the intrusion of three new areas of concern: machine learning, functional safety, and cyber security. The distinguishing characteristic of these tasks is that, while each can be performed in miniature with very modest demands on the system, each can quickly develop an enormous appetite for computing and memory resources. And, most unfortunately, each can end up inside delay-sensitive control loops, posing very tricky challenges for the design team.

Machine learning is a good case in point. Relatively simply deep-learning programs are already being used as supervisory tasks to, for instance, examine sensor data to detect progressive wear on machinery or signs of impending failure. Such tasks normally run in the cloud without any real-time constraints, which is just as well, as they do best with access to huge volumes of data. At the other extreme, trained networks can be ported to quite compact blocks of code, especially with the use of small hardware accelerators, making it possible to use a neural network inside a smart phone. But a deep-learning inference engine trained to detect, say, excessive vibration in a cutting tool during a cut or the intrusion of an unidentified object into a robot’s planned trajectory—either of which could require immediate intervention—could end up being both computationally intensive and on a time-critical path.

Similarly for functional safety and system security, simple rule-based safety checks or authentication/encryption tasks may present few problems for the system design. But simple often, in these areas, means weak. Systems that must operate in an unfamiliar environment or must actively repel novel intrusion attempts may require very complex algorithms, including machine learning, with very fast response times. Intrusion detection, for instance, is much less valuable as a forensic tool than as a prevention.

Resources

Traditionally, the computing and storage resources available to an embedded system designer were easy to list. There were microcontroller chips, single-board computers based on commercial microprocessors, and in some cases boards or boxes using digital signal processing hardware of one sort or another. Any of these could have external memory, and most could attach, with the aid of an operating system, mass storage ranging from a thumb drive to a RAID disk array. And these resources were all in one place: they were physically part of the system, directly connected to sensors, actuators, and maybe to an industrial network.

But add Internet connectivity, and this simple picture snaps out of focus. The original system is now just the network edge. And in addition to edge computing, there are two new locations where there may be important computing resources: the cloud, and what Cisco and some others are calling the fog.

The edge remains much as it has been, except of course that everything is growing in power. In the shadow of the massive market for smart-phone SoCs, microcontrollers have morphed into low-cost SoCs too, often with multiple 32-bit CPU cores, extensive caches, and dedicated functional IP suited to a particular range of applications. Board-level computers have exploited the monotonically growing power of personal computer CPU chips and the growth in solid-state storage. And the commoditization of servers for the world’s data centers has put even racks of data-center-class servers within the reach of well-funded edge computing sites, if the sites can provide the necessary space, power, and cooling.

Recently, with the advent of more demanding algorithms, hardware accelerators have become important options for edge computing as well. FPGAs have long been used to accelerate signal-processing and numerically intensive transfer functions. Today, with effective high-level design tools they have broadened their use beyond these applications into just about anything that can benefit from massively parallel or, more importantly, deeply pipelined execution. GPUs have applications in massively data-parallel tasks such as vision processing and neural network training. And as soon as an algorithm becomes stable and widely used enough to have good library support—machine vision, location and mapping, security, and deep learning are examples—someone will start work on an ASIC to accelerate it.

The cloud, of course, is a profoundly different environment: a world of essentially infinite numbers of big x86 servers and storage resources. Recently, hardware accelerators from all three races—FPGAs, GPUs, and ASICs—have begun appearing in the cloud as well. All these resources are available for the embedded system end-user to rent on an as-used basis.

The important questions in the cloud are not about how many resources are available—there are more than you need—but about terms and conditions. Will your workload run continuously, and if not, what is the activation latency? What guarantees of performance and availability are there? What will this cost the end user? And what happens if the cloud platform provider—who in specialized application areas is often not a giant data-center owner, but a small company that itself leases or rents the cloud resources—suffers a change in situation? These sorts of questions are generally not familiar to embedded-system developers, nor to their customers.

Recently there has been discussion of yet another possible processing site: the so-called fog. The fog is located somewhere between the edge and the cloud, both physically and in terms of its characteristics.

As network operators and wireless service providers turn from old dedicated switching hardware to software on servers, increasingly, Internet connections from the edge will run not through racks of networking hardware, but through data centers. For edge systems relying on cloud computing, this raises an important question: why send your inter-task communications through one data center just to get it to another one? It may be that the networking data center can provide all the resources your task needs without having to go all the way to a cloud service provider (CSP). Or it may be that a service provider can offer hardware or software packages to allow some processing in your edge-computing system, or in an aggregation node near your system, before having to make the jump to a central facility. At the very least you would have one less vendor to deal with. And you might also have less latency and uncertainly introduced by Internet connections. Thus, you can think of fog computing as a cloud computing service spread across the network and into the edge, with all the advantages and questions we have just discussed.

Connections

When all embedded computing is local, inter-task communications can almost be neglected. There are situations where multiple tasks share a critical resource, like a message-passing utility in an operating system, and on extremely critical timing paths you must be aware of the uncertainly in the delay in getting a message between tasks. But for most situations, how long it takes to trigger a task and get data to it is a secondary concern. Most designs confine real-time tasks to a subset of the system where they have a nearly deterministic environment, and focus their timing analyses there.

But when you partition a system between edge, fog, and cloud resources, the kinds of connections between those three environments, their delay characteristics, and their reliability all become important system issues. They may limit where you can place particular tasks. And they may require—by imposing timing uncertainty and the possibility of non-delivery on inter-task messages—the use of more complex control algorithms that can tolerate such surprises.

So what are the connections? We have to look at two different situations: when the edge hardware is connected to an internet service provider (ISP) through copper or fiber-optics (or a blend of the two), and when the connection is wireless (Figure 3).

Figure 3. Tasks can be categorized by computational complexity and latency needs.

The two situations have one thing in common. Unless your system will have a dedicated leased virtual channel to a cloud or fog service provider, part of the connection will be over the public Internet. That part could be from your ISP’s switch plant to the CSP’s data center, or it could be from a wireless operator’s central office to the CSP’s data center.

That Internet connection has two unfortunate characteristics, from this point of view. First, it is a packet-switching network in which different packets may take very different routes, with very different latencies. So, it is impossible to predict more than statistically what the transmission delay between two points will be. Second, Internet Protocol by itself offers only best-effort, not guaranteed, delivery. So, a system that relies on cloud tasks must tolerate some packets simply vanishing.

An additional point worth considering is that so-called data locality laws—which limit or prohibit transmission of data outside the country of origin—are spreading around the world. Inside the European Union, for instance, it is currently illegal to transmit data containing personal information across the borders of a number of member countries, even to other EU members. And in China, which uses locality rules for both privacy and industrial policy purposes, it is illegal to transmit virtually any sort of data to any destination outside the country. So, designers must ask whether their edge system will be able to exchange data with the cloud legally, given the rapidly evolving country-by-country legislation.

These limitations are one of the potential advantages of the fog computing concept. By not traversing the public network, systems relying on ISP or wireless-carrier computing resources or local edge resources can exploit additional provisions to reduce the uncertainty in connection delays.

But messages still have to get from your edge system to the service provider’s aggregation hardware or data center. For ISPs, that will mean a physical connection, typically using Internet Protocol over fiber or hybrid copper/fiber connections, often arranged in a tree structure. Such connections allow for provisioning of fog computing nodes at points where branches intersect. But as any cable TV viewer can attest, they also allow for congestion at nodes or on branches to create great uncertainties in available bandwidth and latency. Suspension of net neutrality in the US has added a further uncertainty, allowing carriers to offer different levels of service to traffic from different sources, and to charge for quality-of-service guarantees.

If the connection is wireless, as we are assured many will be once 5G is deployed, the uncertainties multiply. A 5G link will connect your edge system through multiple parallel RF channels and multiple antennas to one or more base stations. The base stations may be anything from a small cell with minimal hardware to a large local processing site with, again, the ability to offer fog-computing resources, to a remote radio transceiver that relies on a central data center for all its processing. In at least the first two cases, there will be a separate backhaul network, usually either fiber or microwave, connecting the base station to the service provider’s central data center.

The challenges include, first, that latency will depend on what kind of base stations you are working with—something often completely beyond your control. Second, changes in RF transmission characteristics along the mostly line-of-site paths can be caused by obstacles, multipath shifts, vegetation, and even weather. If the channel deteriorates, retry rates will go up, and at some point the base station and your edge system will negotiate a new data rate, or roll the connection over to a different base station. So even for a fixed client system, the characteristics of the connection may change significantly over time, sometimes quite rapidly.

Partitioning

Connectivity opens a new world for the embedded-system designer, offering amounts of computing power and storage inconceivable in local platforms. But it creates a partitioning problem: an iterative process of locating tasks where they have the resources they need, but with the latencies, predictability, and reliability they require.

For many tasks location is obvious. Big-data analyses that comb terabytes of data to predict maintenance needs or extract valuable conclusions about the user can go in the cloud. So, can compute-intensive real-time tasks when acceptable latency is long, and the occasional lost message is survivable or handled in a higher-level networking protocol. A smart speaker in your kitchen can always reply “Let me think on that a moment,” or “Sorry, what?”

Critical, high-frequency control loops must stay at or very near the edge. Conventional control algorithms can’t tolerate the delay and uncertainty of any other choice.

But what if there is a conflict: a task too big for the edge resources, but too time-sensitive to be located across the Internet? Fog computing may solve some of these dilemmas. Others may require you to place more resources in your system.

Just how far today’s technology has enriched the choices was illustrated recently by a series of Microsoft announcements. Primarily involved in edge computing as a CSP, Microsoft has for some time offered the Azure Stack—essentially, an instance of their Azure cloud platform—to run on servers on the customer premises. Just recently, the company enriched this offering with two new options: FPGA acceleration, including the Microsoft’s Project Brainwave machine-learning acceleration, for Azure Stack installations, and Azure Sphere, a way of encapsulating Azure’s security provisions in an approved microcontroller, secure operating system, and coordinated cloud service for use at the edge. Similarly, Intel recently announced the OpenVINO™ toolkit, a platform for implementing vision-processing and machine intelligence algorithms at the edge, relying on CPUs with optional support from FPGAs or vision-processing ASICs. Such fog-oriented provisions could allow embedded-system designers to simply incorporate cloud-oriented tasks into hardware within the confines of their own systems, eliminating the communications considerations and making ideas like deep-learning networks within control loops far more feasible.

In other cases, designers may simply have to refactor critical tasks into time-critical and time-tolerant portions. Or they may have to replace tried and true control algorithms with far more complex approaches that can tolerate the delay and uncertainty of communications links. For example, a complex model-based control algorithm could be moved to the cloud, and used to monitor and adjust a much simpler control loop that is running locally at the edge.

Life at the edge, then, is full of opportunities and complexities. It offers a range of computing and storage resources, and hence of algorithms, never before available to most embedded systems. But it demands a new level of analysis and partitioning, and it beckons the system designer into realms of advanced system control that go far beyond traditional PID control loops. Competitive pressures will force many embedded systems into this new territory, so it is best to get ahead of the curve.

          Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist Perceptions of Factors Impacting Patient Safety      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
imageCertified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) provide more than 40 million anesthetics each year in the United States. This article describes a study that investigates relationships among CRNA organizational structures (CRNA practice models, work setting, workload, level of education, work experience), CRNA ratings of patient safety culture, and CRNA adverse anesthesia-related event (ARE) reporting. This is a cross-sectional survey study of 336 CRNAs randomly selected from American Association of Nurse Anesthetists database. Workload was measured using NASA Task-Load Index and the Revised Individual Workload Perception Scale. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Overall Perceptions of Safety Scale and Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Patient Safety Grade Scale were utilized to measure safety culture. Dependent variables (ARE) included difficult intubation/extubation, inadequate ventilation/oxygenation, and pulmonary aspiration. The Revised Individual Workload Perception Scale workload was significantly associated with ARE. Years' experience and Patient Safety Grade Scale were inversely associated with ARE. Overall Perceptions of Safety Scale was significantly and inversely associated with ARE. Practice model, education, and work setting were not associated with ARE. Based on findings, CRNA workload, years' experience, and patient safety culture may be important markers for ARE. Administrative interventions designed to upgrade patient safety culture and ensure manageable CRNA workload may foster quality patient care.

          Azure Cosmos DB      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

I started my sabbatical work with t he Microsoft Azure Cosmos DB team recently. I have been in talks and collaboration with the Cosmos DB people, and specifically with Dharma Shukla, for over 3 years. I have been very impressed with what they were doing and decided that this would be the best place to spend my sabbatical year .

The travel and settling down took time. I will write about those later. I will also write about my impressions of the greater Seattle area as I discover more about it. This was a big change for me after having stayed in Buffalo for 13 years. I love the scenery: everywhere I look I see a gorgeous lake or hill/mountain scene. And, oh my God, there are blackberries everywhere! It looks like the Himalayan blackberries is the invasive species here , but I can't complain. As I go on an evening stroll with my family, we snack on blackberries growing along the sidewalk. It seems like we are the only ones doing so ---people in US are not much used to eating fruits off from trees/bushes.


Azure Cosmos DB

Ok, coming back to Cosmos DB... My first impressions--from an insider-perspective this time-- about Cosmos DB is also very positive and overwhelming. It is hard not to get overwhelmed. Cosmos DB provides a global highly-available low-latency all-in-one database/storage/querying/analytics service to heavyweight demanding businesses. Cosmos DB is used ubiquitously within Microsoft systems/services, and is also one of the fastest-growing services used by Azure developers externally. It manages 100s of petabytes of indexed data, and serves 100s of trillions of requests every day from thousands of customers worldwide, and enables customers to build highly-responsive mission-critical applications.

I find that there are a lot of things to learn before I can start contributing in a meaningful and significant way to the Cosmos DB team. So I will use this blog to facilitate, speed up, and capture my learning. The process of writing helps me detach, see the big picture, and internalize stuff better. Moreover my blog also serves as my augmented memory and I refer back to it for many things.

Here is my first attempt at an overview post. As I get to know Cosmos DB better, I hope to give you other more-in-depth overview posts.

What is Cosmos DB?

Cosmos DB is Azure's cloud-native database service.

(The term "cloud-native" is a loaded key term, and the team doesn't use it lightly. I will try to unpack some of it here, and I will revisit this in my later posts.)

It is a database that offers frictionless global distribution across any number of Azure regions ---50+ of them! It enables you to elastically scale throughput and storage worldwide on-demand quickly, and you pay only for what you provision. It guarantees single-digit-millisecond latencies at the 99th percentile, supports multiple consistency models, and is backed by comprehensive service level agreements (SLAs) .

I am most impressed with its all-in-one capability. Cosmos DB seamlessly supports many APIs, data formats, consistency levels, and needs across many regions. This alleviates data integration pains which is a major problem for all businesses. The all-in-one capability also eliminates the developer effort wasted into keeping multiple systems with different-yet-aligned goals in sync with each other. I had written earlier about the Lambda versus Kappa architectures, and how the pendulum is all the way to Kappa. Cosmos DB all-in-one gives you the Kappa benefits.

This all-in-one capability backed with global-scale distribution enables new computing models as well. The datacenter-as-a-computer paper from 2009 had talked about the vision of warehouse scale machines. By providing a frictionless globe-scale replicated database, CosmosDB opens the way to thinking about the globe-as-a-computer. One of the usecases I heard from some Cosmos DB customers amazed me. Some customers allocate a spare region (say Australia) where they have no read/write clients as an analytics region. This spare region still gets consistent data replication and stays very up-to-date and is employed for running analytics jobs without jeopardizing the access latencies of real read-write clients. Talk about disaggregated computation and storage! This is disaggregated storage, computing, analytics, and serverless across the globe. Under this model, the globe becomes your playground.

This disaggregated yet all-in-one computing model also manifests itself in customer acquisition and settling in Cosmos DB. Customers often come for the query serving level, which provides high throughput and low-latency via SSDs. Then they get interested and invest into the lower-throughput but higher/cheaper storage options to store terrabytes and petabytes of data. They then diversify and enrich their portfolio further with analytics, event-driven lambda, and real-time streaming capabilities provided in Cosmos DB.

There is a lot to discuss, but in this post I will only make a brief introduction to the issues/concepts, hoping to write more about them later. My interests are of course at the bottom of the stack at the core layer, so I will likely dedicate most of my coming posts to the core layer.


Azure Cosmos DB
Core layer

The core layer provides capabilities that the other layers build upon. These include global distribution, horizontally and independently scalable storage and throughput, guaranteed single-digit millisecond latency, tunable consistency levels, and comprehensive SLAs.

Resource governance is an important and pervasive component of the core layer. Request units (allocating CPU, memory, throughput) is the currency to provision the resources. Provisioning a desired level of throughput through dynamically changing access patterns and across a heterogeneous set of database operations presents many challenges. To meet the stringent SLA guarantees for throughput, latency, consistency, and availability, Cosmos DB automatically employs partition splitting and relocation. This is challenging to achieve as Cosmos DB also handles fine-grained multi-tenancy with 100s of tenants sharing a single machine and 1000s of tenants sharing a single cluster each with diverse workloads and isolated from the rest. Adding even more to the challenge, Cosmos DB supports scaling database throughput and storage independently, automatically, and swiftly to address the customer's dynamically changing requirements/needs.

To provide another important functionality, global distribution, Cosmos DB enables you to configure the regions for "read", "write", or "read/write" regions. Using Azure Cosmos DB's multi-homing APIs, the app always knows where the nearest region is (even as you add and remove regions to/from your Cosmos DB database) and sends the requests to the nearest datacenter. All reads are served from a quorum local to the closest region to provide low latency access to data anywhere in the world.


Azure Cosmos DB

Cosmos DB allows developers to choose among five well-defined consistency models along the consistency spectrum . (Yay,consistency levels!) You can configure the default consistency level on your Cosmos DB account (and later override the consistency on a specific read request). About 73% of Azure Cosmos DB tenants use session consistency and 20% prefer bounded staleness. Only 2% of Azure Cosmos DB tenants override consistency levels on a per request basis. In Cosmos DB, reads served at session, consistent prefix, and eventual consistency are twice as cheap as reads with strong or bounded staleness consistency.

This lovely technical report explains the consistency models through publishing of baseball scores via multiple channels. I will write a summary of this paper in the coming days. The paper concludes: " Even simple databases may have diverse users with different consistency needs. Clients should be able to choose their desired consistency. The system cannot possibly predict or determine the consistency that is required by a given application or client. The preferred consistency often depends on how the data is being used. Moreover, knowledge of who writes data or when data was last written can sometimes allow clients to perform a relaxed consistency read, and obtain the associated benefits, while reading up-to-date data. "

Data layer

Cosmos DB supports and projects multiple data models (documents, graphs, key-value, table, etc.) over a minimalist type system and core data model: the atom-record-sequence (ARS) model.

A Cosmos DB resource container is a schema-agnostic container of arbitrary user-generated JSON items and javascript based stored procedures, triggers, and user-defined-functions (UDFs). Container and item resources are further projected as reified resource types for a specific type of API interface. For example, while using document-oriented APIs, container and item resources are projected as collection and document resources respectively. Similarly, for graph-oriented API access, the underlying container and item resources are projected as graph, node/edge resources respectively.

The overall resource model of an application using Cosmos DB is a hierarchical overlay of the resources rooted under the database account, and can be navigated using hyperlinks.

API layer

Cosmos DB supports three main classes of developers: (1) those familiar with relational databases and prefer SQL language, (2) those familiar with dynamically typed modern programming languages (like JavaScript) and want a dynamically typed efficiently queryable database, and (3) those who are already familiar with popular NoSQL databases and want to transfer their application to Azure cloud without a rewrite.

In order to meet developers wherever they are, Cosmos DB supports SQL, MongoDB, Cassandra, Gremlin, Table APIs with SDKs available in multiple languages.

The ambitious future

There is a palpable buzz in the air in Cosmos DB offices due to the imminent multimaster general availability rollout (which I will also write about later). The team members keep it to themselves working intensely most of the time, but would also have frequent meetings and occasional bursty standup discussions. This is my first deployment in a big team/company, so I am trying to take this in as well. (Probably a post on that is coming up as well.)

It looks like the Cosmos DB team caught a good momentum. The team wants to make Cosmos DB the prominent cloud database and even the go-to all-in-one cloud middleware. Better analytic support and better OLAP/OLTP integration is in the works to support more demanding more powerful next generation applications.

Cosmos DB already has great traction in enterprise systems. I think it will be getting more love from independent developers as well, since it provides serverless computing and all-in-one system with many APIs. It is possible to try it for free at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cosmos-db/ . To keep up to date with the latest news and announcements, you can follow @AzureCosmosDB and #CosmosDB on Twitter.


My work at Cosmos DB

In the short term, as I learn more about Cosmos DB, I will write more posts like this one. I will also try to learn and write about the customer usecases, workloads, and operations issue without revealing details. I think learning about the real world usecases and problems will be one of the most important benefits I will be able to get from my sabbatical.

In the medium term, I will work on TLA+/PlusCal translation of consistency levels provided by Cosmos DB and share them here. Cosmos DB uses TLA+/PlusCal to specify and reason about the protocols. This helps prevent concurrency bugs, race conditions, and helps with the development efforts. TLA+ modeling has been instrumental in Cosmos DB's design which integrated global distribution, consistency guarantees, and high-availability from the ground-up. ( Here is an interview where Leslie Lamport shares his thoughts on the foundations of Azure Cosmos DB and his influence in the design of Azure Cosmos DB.) This is very dear to my heart, as I have been employing TLA+ in my distributed systems classes for the past 5 years .

Finally, as I get a better mastery of Cosmos DB internals, I like to contribute to protocols on multimaster multirecord transaction support. I also like to learn more about and contribute to Cosmos DB's automatic failover support during one or more regional outages. Of course, these protocols will all be modeled and verified with TLA+.

MAD questions

1. What would you do with a frictionless cloud middleware? Which new applications can this enable?

Here is something that comes to my mind. Companies are already uploading IOT sensor data from cars to Azure CosmosDB continuously. Next step would be to build more ambitious applications that make sense of correlated readings and use
          Deploying a Stateful Application on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Once you go through this Kubernetes tutorial, you’ll be able to follow the processes & ideas outlined here to deploy any stateful application on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS).

In ourprevious post, we guided you through the process of deploying a stateful, Dockerized Node.js app on Google Cloud Kubernetes Engine! As an example application, we used our blog engine called Ghost. If you read that post, you'll see that the cluster creation, disk provisioning and the mysql database creation and handling is vendor specific, which also leaks into our Kubernetes objects. So let's compare it to setting up an AKS cluster on Azure and deploying our Ghost there.

This article was written byKristof Ivancza who is a software engineer at RisingStack &Tamas Kadlecsik, RisingStack's CEO. In case you need guidance with Kubernetes or Node.js, feel free to ping us at [emailprotected]

If you are not familiar with Kubernetes, I recommend reading our Getting started with Kubernetes article first.

What will we need to deploy a stateful app on Azure Kubernetes Engine? Create a cluster Persistent Disks to store our images and themes Create a MySQL instance and connect to it A secret to store credentials A deployment A service to expose the application Creating the Cluster

First, we need to create a cluster, set the default cluster for AKS and pass cluster credentials to kubectl.

# create an Azure resource group $ az group create --name ghost-blog-resource --location eastus # locations: eastus, westeurope, centralus, canadacentral, canadaeast # ------ # create a cluster $ az aks create --resource-group ghost-blog-resource --name ghost-blog-cluster --node-count 1 --generate-ssh-keys # this process could take several minutes # it will return a JSON with information about the cluster # ------ # pass AKS Cluster credentials to kubectl $ az aks get-credentials --resource-group ghost-blog-resource --name ghost-blog-cluster # make sure it works $ kubectl get node The Container and the Deployment

We'll use the same imageas before, and the Deployment will be the same as well. I'll add it to this blogpost though, so you can see how it looks like.

# deployment.yml apiVersion: apps/v1beta1 kind: Deployment metadata: name: ghost-blog labels: app: ghost-blog spec: replicas: 1 selector: matchLabels: app: ghost-blog template: metadata: labels: app: ghost-blog spec: containers: # ghost container - name: ghost-container image: ghost:alpine imagePullPolicy: IfNotPresent # ghost always starts on this port port: - containerPort: 2368 Creating Persistent Disks to Store our Images and Themes

We'll create our disk using Dynamic Provisioning again. Although, in this case, we won't specify the storageClassName , as Kubernetes will use the default one when it's omitted. We could have done this on GKE as well, but I wanted to provide a more detailed picture of the disk creation. On GKE the default StorageClass was called standard , on AKS it is called default .

# PersistentVolumeClaim.yml apiVersion: v1 kind: PersistentVolumeClaim metadata: name: pd-blog-volume-claim spec: accessModes: - ReadWriteOnce resources: requests: storage: 10Gi

Submit this yaml with the following command:

$ kubectl apply -f PersistentVolumeClaim.yml # make sure it is bound $ kubectl get pvc # it could take a few minutes to be bound, if its pending for more than a minute check `kubectl describe` to make sure nothing fishy happened $ kubectl describe pvc

The deployment should be updated as well, just as before:

# deployment.yml apiVersion: apps/v1beta1 kind: Deployment metadata: name: ghost-blog labels: app: ghost-blog spec: replicas: 1 selector: matchLabels: app: ghost-blog template: metadata: labels: app: ghost-blog spec: containers: # ghost container - name: ghost-container image: ghost:alpine imagePullPolicy: IfNotPresent # ghost always starts on this port ports: - containerPort: 2368 volumeMounts: # define persistent storage for themes and images - mountPath: /var/lib/ghost/content/ name: pd-blog-volume volumes: - name: pd-blog-volume persistentVolumeClaim: claimName: pd-blog-volume-claim Creating a MySQL Instance and Connecting to it Using SSL First we need to add the MySQL extension for Azure Databases. $ az extension add --name rdbms Now we're ready to create our MySQL server. $ az mysql server create --resource-group ghost-blog-resource --name ghost-database --location eastus --admin-user admin --admin-password password --sku-name GP_Gen4_2 --version 5.7 # this could take several minutes to complete Configuring the Firewall Rule $ az mysql server firewall-rule create --resource-group ghost-blog-resource --server ghost-database --name allowedIPrange --start-ip-address 0.0.0.0 --end-ip-address 255.255.255.255

This rule will give access to the database from every IP. It is certainly not recommended to open everything. However, the Nodes in our cluster will have different IP addresses which are difficult the guess ahead of time. If we know that we will have a set number of Nodes, let's say 3, we can specify those IP addresses. However, if we plan to use Node autoscaling, we will need to allow connections from a wide range of IPs. You can use this as a quick and dirty solution, but it is definitely better to use a Vnet.

Configure Vnet service endpoints for Azure Database for MySQL

Virtual Network (VNet) service endpoint rules for MySQL is a firewall security feature. By using it, we can limit access to our Azure MySQL server, so it only accepts requests that are sent from a particular subnet in a virtual network. Via using VNet rules, we don't have to configure Firewall Rules and add each and every node's IP to grant access to our Kubernetes Cluster.

$ az extension add --name rdbms-vnet # make sure it got installed $ az extensions list | grep "rdbms-vnet" { "extensionType": "whl", "name": "rdbms-vnet", "version": "10.0.0" }

The upcoming steps will have to be done in the browser as there is no way to do it through the CLI. Or even if there is, it is definitely not documented, so it is a lot more straightforward to do it on the UI.

Go toAzure Portal and login to your account In the search bar on the top search for Azure Database for MySQL servers . Select the database you created ( ghost-database ). On the left sidebar, click Connection Security You will find VNET Rules in the middle. Click + Adding existing virtual network Give it a name (e.g: myVNetSQLRule), Select your subscription type Under Virtual Network , select the created resource group and the s
          Introduction to Azure SQL Managed Instance SQL On The Edge Episode 17      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

SQL Server is one of the most adopted and widely-used database engines in the world. Almost every company either builds on it or uses some enterprise third-party software that uses it as the back end. For this reason, it makes sense that Microsoft has invested in their SQL database offering in Azure from the initial years of the cloud platform.

Looking at the timeline of SQL-related Azure releases, we can also see that in the last few years, Microsoft has aggressively increased these investments to provide customers with more choice and more power. Let’s see:

Azure SQL Database was released in 2010. Performance-based tiers released in 2014. Elastic Pools released in 2015. Azure SQL Data Warehouse released in 2016. Azure SQL Managed Instance in preview now, H1 2018.

At this point, Managed Instance does not have a set date to be generally available, but it is very likely that the team is trying to make this happen during the second half of this year. So with a new offering in place, let’s look at what makes it different, and why it might be the best fit for your SQL Server workload going forward.

Why Managed Instance?

From its inception, Azure SQL Database has focused on the database as the unit of deployment, security,and performance. While this fits well with new developments or SaaS providers, it wasn’t always a good fit for on-premises customers. Many existing SQL Server clients are used to having multiple databases per instance and being able to work with them on a low isolation environment. This means moving data back and forth, using three-part names, cross-database security, etc. For these clients, there is too much friction to migrate to the existing database-centric offering.

This is the gap that Managed Instance is coming to fill. It will provide the instance as the fundamental unit and allow this close relationship between the databases that live inside of it. It will be a better fit for many existing SQL Server clients but it will also open up new scenarios that are not available on the single database Azure SQL Database offering. For example, you will be able to place a managed instance directly into a VNET, backup and restore from binary SQL Server backups and use features not allowed on the single database model like SQLCLR, linked servers, etc.

Compatibility

As I mentioned, backups can be restored into Managed Instance and they can be as old as SQL Server 2005 backups. However, once you are on Managed Instance, if you back up your database, you will get a backup that is for the latest SQL Server version; you won’t be able to simply back up back to an old version. The actual database compatibility models are the same as what Azure SQL Database offers, which is from 100 (SQL Server 2008) to 140 (SQL Server 2017).

In regards to the other features, there are some limits based on the fact that this is a managed service. For example, linked servers will only be to SQL Server or Azure SQL databases since you can’t install third-party drivers on the underlying system. Similarly, SQL Agent currently only allows T-SQL jobs. Something like a command line job would provide direct access to the underlying operating system and thus could interfere with the operation of the service.

Pricing Model

The pricing model for Managed Instance is split into four components:

Cores: the amount of cores will also dictate how much RAM you get. Data Storage: the first 32GB are included, then you pay in 32GB increments. Backup Storage: the amount in GB of your compressed backups. IO Rate: flat rate per 1 million IOPS.

For clients that have an existing SQL Server investment with Software Assurance, Microsoft is providing the Azure Hybrid Benefit. This means you can migrate your SQL Server licenses into Managed Instance and get a large discount off the sticker price (about 40%).

There are also some opt-in features that have to be paid for separately, like the ability to have active geo-replication (for DR) and security monitoring with Azure Threat Detection. During the preview, the DR options are not live yet but we can expect those when the service becomes generally available.

Hardware Specifications

In terms of technical specifications, Managed Instance is offered on two hardware generations: Gen4 and Gen5.

Gen 4 CPUs are based on Intel E5-2673 v3 (Haswell) 2.4 GHz processors and 1 vCore maps to 1 physical core.

Gen 5 CPUs are based on Intel E5-2673 v4 (Broadwell) 2.3 GHz processors and 1 vCore maps to 1 logical core (HT thread).

The higher core counts (from 32 all the way to 80) are only available on Gen5 and also Gen5 has NVMe SSD storage. There is a drawback that Gen5 maps 5.5 GB of RAM per core versus 7GB of RAM per core for Gen4.

Service Tiers

The service is offered in two different tiers: General Purpose and Business Critical. Both of them are okay for production use and choosing one over the other depends on performance, RTO, and RPO requirements. For Tier 3 Tier 2 workloads, General Purpose could be enough, for Tier 1 mission-critical workloads, definitely go with Business Critical.

Business Critical supports higher IOPS with less latency by using local NVMe storage instead of remote Premium Storage. Business Critical also offers faster failover capabilities built on top of Availability Groups, with three replicas including one for read-only workloads. The final big distinction is that Business Critical is required if you use the In-Memory OLTP feature.

Demo

Okay, now that we have a good understanding of Managed Instance, let’s run a demo of creating your Managed Instance, connecting to it and extracting cores and memory information. Check it out on the video below, cheers!

          Azure SQL Data Warehouse and Backups      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Just because the cloud movement is strong doesn’t mean the end of “DBA’s”, it does mean a change in skills and no doubt you will (one day) create Azure SQL Data Warehouse (DW) in Azure. If you are from an operational background like me then backups will be on your mind for this product. The question is how are backups done with Azure SQL DW?

It is very different from Azure SQL DB (which you would expect). Azure SQL DW has a totally different architecture to its classic database counter-part. Restore points are the key here. Automatic ones are taken throughout the day and are kept for seven days only. Worst case scenario is the time between the restore points will be eight hours hence giving an eight hour RPO (Recovery Point Objective).

Manual Restore Points

You have the ability to create a manual restore point which is a great idea before major changes to your Data Warehouse. You can only do this via PowerShell via the following command.

New-AzureRmSqlDatabaseRestorePoint -ResourceGroupName “ResourceGroup01” -ServerName “Server01” -DatabaseName “Database01” -RestorePointLabel “RestorePoint01”

I opt for cloud shell.


Azure SQL Data Warehouse and Backups

This is the output for my environment once I enter all my details.


Azure SQL Data Warehouse and Backups

Whilst the restore point creation is running I issue the following query via SSMS (SQL Server Management Studio)

select * from sys.pdw_loader_backup_runs order by run_id desc
Azure SQL Data Warehouse and Backups

You can clearly see the label of the restore point and the underlying name of the data warehouse starting with Fabric://.

When it comes to restoring, the Azure portal DOES pick up the latest restore point. If you navigate to the restore option, you can match the submit time of the manual restore point to the restore point offered via the portal.


Azure SQL Data Warehouse and Backups

The common time stamp here is 2018-06-19 09:47.

Automatic Restore Points?

What about the automatic restore points? Well remember it could be anytime between 4 and 8 hours. I ran the below TSQL every hour to see if / when the automatic restore point starts.

select * from sys.pdw_loader_backup_runs Where run_id = 2
Azure SQL Data Warehouse and Backups

Only a couple of hours later (11:52am) the first automatic restore point gets created. This time stamp also gets picked up by the Azure portal.

Don’t forget about the manual restore point created at 09:47 too, you will also see it within the portal.


Azure SQL Data Warehouse and Backups

I like this concept and like the fact that you can restore via the portal.


          A peek into Azure’s Kubernetes container pattern future      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Over the years Azure has evolved. First it was a host for stateless applications, using a range of Azure services. Then it became a host for virtualized infrastructures, supported by cloud hosted tools for big data and for storage. Now it’s supporting cloud-native distributed application development, using containers and tools like Kubernetes to manage your code .

In its earlier iterations, Azure didn’t need much in the way of new programming skills. Even as a stateless platform, you could use many of your existing .Net skills to build and deploy apps. But distributed systems, like those that run onKubernetes, are very different. And while you can build apps using the same tools and techniques you always have, the underlying architectures and design patterns are quite different.

Brendan Burns, one of the original founders of the Kubernetes Project, is now a distinguished engineer on the Azure team. As part of that role, he’s working on a set of design patterns for Kubernetes-based applications that can help architects and developers move into the world of distributed application development, and he talked about these ideas at O’Reilly’s 2018 Oscon conference.

A pattern language for containers

As Burns noted, the history of programming is one of increasing abstraction, and of tools and patterns that guide developers. As a profession, you’ve taken steps from raw assembly language programming to Fortran and on to Donald E. Knuth’s seminal book series The Art of Computer Programming , then as your applications got bigger and bigger, you added object orientation and thought about design patterns.

          Analysis of the Technology Acceptance Model in Examining Hospital Nurses’ Behavioral Intentions Toward the Use of Bar Code Medication Administration      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
imageSerious medication errors continue to exist in hospitals, even though there is technology that could potentially eliminate them such as bar code medication administration. Little is known about the degree to which the culture of patient safety is associated with behavioral intention to use bar code medication administration. Based on the Technology Acceptance Model, this study evaluated the relationships among patient safety culture and perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use, and behavioral intention to use bar code medication administration technology among nurses in hospitals. Cross-sectional surveys with a convenience sample of 163 nurses using bar code medication administration were conducted. Feedback and communication about errors had a positive impact in predicting perceived usefulness (β = .26, P < .01) and perceived ease of use (β = .22, P < .05). In a multiple regression model predicting for behavioral intention, age had a negative impact (β = −.17, P < .05); however, teamwork within hospital units (β = .20, P < .05) and perceived usefulness (β = .35, P < .01) both had a positive impact on behavioral intention. The overall bar code medication administration behavioral intention model explained 24% (P < .001) of the variance. Identified factors influencing bar code medication administration behavioral intention can help inform hospitals to develop tailored interventions for RNs to reduce medication administration errors and increase patient safety by using this technology.

          Azure: Self-Service Password Reset      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Current Revision posted to TechNet Articles by George Chrysovaladis Grammatikos on 8/10/2018 10:06:43 AM

Self-Service Password Reset is a useful tool to help with reducing the Burdon on the service desk whilst empowering users and enabling them to have more control over their accounts. It allows users to be more productive, reducing the amount of time to report the issue to the service desk and reduces end user frustration.

For licensing requirements please see this link: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/authentication/concept-sspr-licensing

The below steps enable SSPR with Writeback:

First, you need to enable writeback in the Azure AD Connect tool. A guide to do this is here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/authentication/howto-sspr-writeback

One thing to note when making setting changes within Azure is to click save at the top of the window you have open when you have made changes.

Open Azure Active Directory then Password Reset. Open the properties tab and then specify if you would like to enable SSPR for selected, or all users. If you chose to enable for selected, you will have to specify an individual or group of users.

 


On the Authentication Methods tab, you can select what authentication methods you want the users to use to enable them to manage their passwords. In my example, I have enabled Email, phone and security questions.

You can choose the number of security questions you would like the users to answer, as well as what the questions are.



You can select from the set of predefined security questions, as well as create your own custom questions. The set of predefined questions are quite extensive but in my case, I wanted to use “Mother’s maiden name” as an option which wasn’t in the predefined list. You can use all custom questions or all predefined which is up to you to choose.

To add a predefined question, click the + next to Predefined.



To add a custom question, click the + next to Custom, and then type in the question you would like to use, then click Add.


On the registration tab you can choose to force users to have to register for SSPR when they next sign in, and the number of days until it asks them to re-confirm their authentication information.


The notification tab allows you to select whether to notify users if their password has been changed. Which is a great security step as they will be notified if someone else has changed their password?


The On-premises integration tab verifies that you have enabled password writeback in the Ad Connect tool which is documented at the start of this document. As well as whether to enable users to unlock accounts without resetting their password.



Once the above has been configured you can test SSPR. If you have chosen to force users to register when they log in they will be asked to enter their authentication details when they log in, or you can email them and ask them to browse to https://aka.ms/ssprsetup.

Below are what users will first see. Users must enter details for each of the authentication options you have forced them to configure.


Once you have entered all the required authentication details, click finish and this will redirect you to your applications.


Below are instructions on resetting your password once authentication information has been configured. You can do this from either the link below or by clicking on the “Can’t access your account” link on the Office 365 login screen, then select “Work or school account”.

https://passwordreset.microsoftonline.com/


You then need to verify who you are by typing in your email address and the CAPTCHA information shown in the box. On the next screen, you select what issue you are having with your password.


You must pass two verification steps to enable you to reset your password. You can choose any two of the steps shown in the screenshot below. If you successfully pass them both, you are then prompted to type a new password.

If you chose the option above “I know my password but still can’t sign in”, you will have to complete the same verification steps. Once verified it will unlock your account.

Additional attention is paid to specific areas of controversy regarding surgical management and evaluation of UCS: outcomes of fronto-orbital advancement (FOA) versus endoscopic strip craniectomy (ESC), emergence of spring-associated cranioplasty for craniosynostosis, and morphologic assessment metrics. Methods: A literature search from 1992 to 2017 was performed with a defined search strategy and manual screening process. About 24 studies were included in the final review. Results: There is inconsistency among studies in measuring outcomes. Despite wide utilization, FOA produces mixed results, especially when looking at long-term outcomes. Preliminary data suggest advantages to using ESC over FOA with regard to facial symmetry, postoperative strabismus, and operating time. Distraction osteogenesis has long been utilized in Asia and is now being actively studied in the United States. Data on spring-assisted cranioplasty are lacking. Long-term results at skeletal maturity for many of these techniques are lacking. Discussion: Despite some promising results, methods of measurement are inconsistent and long-term data are lacking. All future research in this area would benefit from consistent and standardized reporting of data, including perioperative statistics and reproducible 3-dimensional computed tomography craniofacial measurements. Additionally, no definitive recommendations can be made until data at skeletal maturity are studied, and all studies would benefit from long-term follow-up data.

          Re: Azure Reflections Is Unleashing Bullet Hell Madness On Switch At The End Of August      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

@Warioware I'm actually with you on that. I miss the older shmups before bullet hell became the only way to make a shump anymore. My all-time favorite shmup is Raiden Fighters Jet and I think that it has the perfect amount of bullets without veering into bullet hell territory.

I just get so frustrated that shumps have become such an insular genre. I think it's the poster boy of the dangers of only designing and catering to the most hardcore players. You keep having to up the challenge and complexity which satisfies the hardcore but scares of almost all newcomers to the genre.

Luckily there are a few shmups on the switch that don't quite get into that bullet hell madness. I'd recommend Aero Fighters 2, 3 as well as blazing star and a few Pskiyo shooters like gunbird 2.

          A New Improved Method for Extraction of DNA From Teeth for the Analysis of Hypervariable Loci      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
imageA new method for better recovery of DNA suitable for amplification of hypervariable loci from fragments of teeth, consisting of two steps—scraping and aspiration, and extensive decalcification–is reported. Higher yields of high molecular weight DNA were obtained from the root, pulp, and crown of all kinds of 120 teeth, irrespective of gender, age, and source of teeth. HLA DQA1, 5 poly markers (LDLR, GYPA, HBGG, D7S8, and Gc), and other 12 short tandem repeat loci (HPRTB, F13B, LPL, D13S317, D7S820, D5S818, D21S11, D18S51, FGA, D8S1179, D3S1358, and vWA) could be successfully amplified and typed from recovered DNA.

------------------------------
Video streaming apps are all the rage and continue to demonstrate rapid growth in usage and creative implementations. Every vertical market has the need for video apps. So, you want to learn how to build a video streaming app, but you don’t know where to get started or you are not a video expert? Or maybe you are just curious about video technology? Then, this session is for you!

To build a live-streaming app for iOS and Android, you don’t have to be a video expert. Using a mobile SDK and cloud streaming service can help you quickly and easily integrate live video into an existing app or service or build a livestream app from the ground up. Using these tools, you can build anything from a basic one-way broadcasting platform to a fully interactive live-streaming app that allows users to create and share their own videos. This is referred to as user generated content. It’s all about the tools, huh?

What about the need for speed? More and more apps demand real-time streaming delivery—such as those for gaming, financial trading, auctions or interactive experiences like HQ Trivia—you need an API that’s built for speed. Learn how to send live streams to destinations around the world with the goal to minimize the latency time it takes to display a live video from glass to glass. That is, from the glass of the recording device glass to the glass of the end viewer’s screen.

Join Russ Fustino, Wowza Developer Evangelist, in this informative session and see how easy it is to get started building iOS and Android apps using video streaming with actual latency in the sub 3 second range anywhere on the globe. Times are changing. Keep up with the times. Hope to see you at the session!

What you will learn in this session:

• How to use video streaming in iOS and Android apps.
• How to use video streaming sample code.
• How to reduce latency of the stream.
• Learn about video streaming basics.
• API code and Video SDK.

          Legionella pneumophila in healthcare facilities      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
imageLegionella pneumophila are gram-negative bacteria found in freshwater environments; they can survive as intracellular parasites of free-living protozoa and within biofilms in building water systems. L. pneumophila multiply at temperatures between 25 and 42°C, with an optimal growth temperature of 35°C. There are 16 serogroups of L. pneumophila. In Europe, approximately 70% of Legionella infections are caused by L. pneumophila serogroup 1 and 20–30% by other serogroups. These bacteria cause respiratory disease (legionellosis) in humans when a susceptible host inhales aerosolized water containing the bacteria or aspirates water containing the bacteria. Legionellosis classically presents as two distinct clinical entities: Legionnaires’ disease, a severe multisystem disease involving pneumonia, and Pontiac fever, a self-limited flu-like illness. Urine antigen tests and cultures of sputum or bronchoalveolar lavage are the most suitable clinical laboratory tests for Legionella. The new macrolide antibiotics, such as clarithromycin and azithromycin, show more effective in-vitro activity and a better intracellular and tissue penetration than erythromycin, as do the quinolones. Hospitals represent ideal locations for Legionnaires’ disease transmission: at-risk individuals are present in large numbers; plumbing systems are frequently old and complex, favouring multiplication of the organism; and water temperatures are often reduced to prevent scalding of patients. Safe water is vital to ensure patient safety and reduce costs where waterborne infections cause increasing morbidity, mortality, treatment costs, longer hospital stays and compensation claims. The WHO has developed Water Safety Plans for preventing or controlling the risks through system assessment, monitoring, surveillance and management/communication, so that health outcomes can be improved, that is a systematic approach is required to secure microbial safety.
