- Linus Torvalds Weighs in on Commercial Users of Open Source CodeThis week Linus Torvalds continued a long email interview with Jeremy Andrews, founding partner/CEO of Tag1 (a global technology consulting firm and the second all-time leading contributor to Drupal). In the first part Torvalds had discussed everything from Apple’s ARM64 chips and Rust drivers, to his own Fedora-based home work environment — and reflections on the early days of Linux. But the second part offers some deeper insight into the way Torvalds thinks, some personal insight, what he’d share with other project maintainers — and some thoughts on getting corporations to contribute to open …

- 10 Top Process Improvement Tools You Need to Create a More Sustainable BusinessA study by BCG/MIT finds that 90% of executives deem sustainability to be important, yet only 60% of companies incorporate sustainability as part of their business strategy, and even less (25%) integrate sustainability into the core of their business model.
To generate a clear business case, organizations need to write business operations with sustainability in mind, which can be done by the following two steps:
- Your Guide to Going Paperless in 2021Creating a paperless office was first theorized in 1975, in a Business Week article by a man called Vincent E. Giuliano.
The term “paperless office” is still going around but the need for organizations making the switch is becoming more and more obvious.
- Are We Now Experiencing 'a Great Reassessment of Work'?The Washington Post reports on „growing evidence — both anecdotal and in surveys — that a lot of people want to do something different with their lives than they did before the pandemic.“ In a piece titled „It’s not a ‚labor shortage.‘ It’s a great reassessment of work,“ they argue that „The coronavirus outbreak has had a dramatic psychological effect on workers, and people are reassessing what they want to do and how they want to work, whether in an office, at home or some hybrid combination.“ A Pew Research Center survey this year found that 66 percent of the unemployed had „seriously consid …

- Future, A Token of Task SubmissionFuture, A Token of Task Submission
I believe, the title is very abstract but clearly explains the purpose. The concurrency package is the boss when it’s come to asynchronous programming. Of course, this is the continuation of my previous articles on asynchronous programming.
We have seen creating Threads and make use of Executor Framework for the Thread management. Also, We look at how to submit a task and how is it processed internally in the executor. But we haven’t seen how to check the status or getting the result etc.
- Unlike Clearview AI, this Facial-Recognition Search Engine is Open to EveryoneThis week CNN investigated PimEyes, a „mysterious“ but powerful facial-recognition search engine: If you upload a picture of your face to PimEyes‘ website, it will immediately show you any pictures of yourself that the company has found around the internet. You might recognize all of them, or be surprised (or, perhaps, even horrified) by some; these images may include anything from wedding or vacation snapshots to pornographic images. PimEyes is open to anyone with internet access. It’s a stark contrast from Clearview AI, which became well-known for building its enormous stash of faces with im …
- Electric Vehicles May Drive a Lithium Supply CrunchA carbon-free future „will require many millions of batteries, both to drive electric vehicles and to store wind and solar power on the grid,“ reports IEEE Spectrum. Unfortunately, today’s battery chemistries „mostly rely on lithium — a metal that could soon face a global supply crunch.“ Recently, Rystad Energy projected a „serious lithium supply deficit“ in 2027 as mining capacity lags behind the EV boom. The mismatch could effectively delay the production of around 3.3 million battery-powered passenger cars that year, according to the research firm. Without new mining projects, delays could …
- Twitter and TikTok are Losing the War Against COVID DisinformationAmerica’s leading social media companies „pledged to put warning labels on COVID-19 and COVID vaccines posts to stop the spread of falsehoods, conspiracy theories and hoaxes that are fueling vaccine hesitancy in the USA,“ reports USA Today. „With the exception of Facebook, nearly all of them are losing the war against COVID disinformation.“ That’s the conclusion of a new report shared exclusively with USA TODAY. As the pace of the nation’s immunizations slows and public health agencies struggle to get shots in arms, Advance Democracy found that debunked claims sowing unfounded fears about the …
- On SNL Elon Musk Reveals He Has Asperger Syndrome – and Tanks the Price of DogecoinNBC News reports on what exactly happened during Elon Musk’s appearance on Saturday Night Live — starting with a surprisingly personal monologue: „I don’t always have a lot of intonation or variation in how I speak,“ Musk said, „which I’m told makes for great comedy.“ He admitted he’s socially awkward and said he was the first person with Asperger syndrome to host the show — „or at least the first to admit it.“ „I know I sometimes say or post strange things but that’s just how my brain works,“ Musk, 49, said. „I reinvented electric cars and I’m sending people to Mars on a rocket ship. Did you …
- Can Apple's AirTags Be Used to Track Another Person?As Mother’s Day approached, CNN Business Editor Samantha Murphy Kelly clipped a keychain with one of Apple’s tiny new „AirTag“ Bluetooth trackers onto her son’s book bag, in an experiment that „highlighted how easily these trackers could be used to track another person.“ Location trackers aren’t new — there are similar products from Samsung, Sony and Tile — but AirTags‘ powerful Ultra Wideband technology chip allows it to more accurately determine the location and enables precise augmented reality directional arrows that populate on the iPhone or iPad’s screen. While AirTags are explicitly int …
- Millennials are Taking Governments to Court over Climate Change. And They're Starting to WinCNN tells the story of Luisa Neubauer, a 25-year-old woman who took the German government to court last year — and won: On April 29, the country’s Supreme Court announced that some provisions of the 2019 climate change act were unconstitutional and „incompatible with fundamental rights,“ because they lacked a detailed plan for reducing emissions and placed the burden for future climate action on young people. The court ordered the government to come up with new provisions that „specify in greater detail how the reduction targets for greenhouse gas emissions“ by the end of next year. The decisi …

- 'Mushrooms on Mars is a Hoax. Stop Believing Hacks'Several science web sites are strongly disputing a China-based journal’s claim that time-lapse photos of Mars show growing mushrooms. TNW Neural headlined their story „Mushrooms on Mars is a hoax — stop believing hack ’scientists'“ If you believe those images demonstrate fungus growing on Mars, I’m about to blow your frickin‘ mind. Check out this pic. You see that? To heck with fungus, that’s an entire highway growing out of the sand in front of a moving bus. You can clearly see that the Earth’s sandy crust is being broken apart as the expanding highway organism grows beneath it. Or, if you’re …
- New Study Again Finds Mediterranean Diet Lowers Symptoms of Brain AgingCNN reports that a new study has again found that Mediterranean diets can lower your risk of dementia „by interfering with the buildup of two proteins, amyloid and tau, into the plaques and tangles that are hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease.“ „The mountain of evidence continues to build that you are what you eat when it comes to brain health,“ said Dr. Richard Isaacson, who directs the Alzheimer’s Prevention Clinic at Weill Cornell Medicine and New York-Presbyterian Hospital… „For every point of higher compliance with the diet, people had one extra year less of brain aging. That is striking,“ …

- China's Out-of-Control Rocket Plunges Out of Orbit, Crashes Into OceanAn out-of-control Chinese rocket plunged out of orbit and reentered Earth’s atmosphere in the Indian Ocean (just west of the Maldives), reports CNN, citing China’s space agency: Most of the rocket was „destroyed“ on reentry to the atmosphere, the space agency said. The rocket, which is about 108 feet tall and weighs nearly 40,000 pounds, had launched a piece of a new Chinese space station into orbit on April 29. After its fuel was spent, the rocket had been left to hurtle through space uncontrolled until Earth’s gravity dragged it back to the ground. Generally, the international space communit …
- Elon Musk Begins Hosting 'Saturday Night Live' – As the World WatchesThis afternoon Elon Musk tweeted a special URL allowing viewers outside the U.S. to simultaenously livestream his 90-minute appearance on Saturday Night Live for the first time in more than 100 countries, starting at 11:30 p.m. EST. The A.V. Club had a sardonic reaction to the livestreaming on YouTube: Good news for anyone looking at tonight’s upcoming broadcast of Saturday Night Live — in which labor-busting vaccine skeptic Elon Musk will be given a platform to broadcast his techno-dystopian brain contents to the world — and thought, „Wow, there’s not enough Google involved here.“ Well, not a …
- Does XKCD's Cartoon Show How Scientific Publishing Is a Joke?„An XKCD comic — and its many remixes — perfectly captures the absurdity of academic research,“ writes the Atlantic (in an article shared by Slashdot reader shanen). It argues that the cartoon „captured the attention of scientists — and inspired many to create versions specific to their own disciplines. Together, these became a global, interdisciplinary conversation about the nature of modern research practices.“ It depicts a taxonomy of the 12 „Types of Scientific Paper,“ presented in a grid. „The immune system is at it again,“ one paper’s title reads. „My colleague is wrong and I can finally …

- IoT World Today: Why Do We Need to Build IoT Projects?This article is about the prospects of IoT and why we need to build IoT projects. You may think the reason is new technologies like 5G but that is not the case. After the pandemic of last year, we witness an unprecedented usage of the internet and heavy reliance on network-based applications. Today, in 2021, we can say that consumer behavior has changed and it has changed for good. Consumers start relying on IoT devices and that’s why you need to build one today. Here is why. Technology Diversity Drives IoT Growth The Covid-19 pandemic drove companies and consumers to become more technology-re …
- AppOps with Kubernetes and Devtron – The Perfect FitKubernetes needs no introduction in this cloud-native world. It was born when I was a middle-aged man. Years later, I am still as young as earlier (take with a pinch of salt) while Kubernetes grew out to be a fine tool that outperformed other platforms in enabling operational efficiency and application resilience.
In the past, I wrote several articles and guides on Kubernetes and supported platforms. But then, in the pursuit of appyness, there is no end to innovation.

- Do You Have a Language for Your Team?Navigating the culture of a team is more art than science. Unspoken expectations, individual preferences, past experiences, a sense of shared purpose, and relationships between team members dictate a large part of how a team communicates and collaborates.
Without stating, each team develops its own implicit language that determines:
- Rule-Based Query OptimizationThe goal of the query optimizer is to find the query execution plan that computes the requested result efficiently. In this blog post, we discuss rule-based optimization – a common pattern to explore equivalent plans used by modern optimizers. Then we explore the implementation of several state-of-the-art rule-based optimizers. Then we analyze the rule-based optimization in Apache Calcite, Presto, and CockroachDB. Transformations A query optimizer must explore the space equivalent execution plans and pick the optimal one. Intuitively, plan B is equivalent to plan A if it produces the same resu …
- A Real-World Example of a Stream CollectorJava Stream’s Collectors methods fit most use-cases. They allow returning either a Collection or a scalar. For the former, you use one of the toXXX() method, for the latter, one of the reducing() one.
Let’s imagine an e-commerce platform that implements a shopping cart. The cart is modeled as the following:
- API Publish/Subscribe Between Zato ServicesOne of the additions in the upcoming Zato 3.2 release is an extension to its publish/subscribe mechanism that lets services publish messages directly to other services. Let’s check how to use it and how it compares to other means of invoking one’s API services.
How Does It Work?
In your Zato service, you can publish a message to any other services as below. Simply point self.pubsub.publish to the target service by the latter’s name and it will receive your message.
- Managing Kubernetes: AWS EKS vs. ECS vs. FargateWe all love containers for their scalability. But it might easily become your overhead if you end up managing a large cluster.
This is where container orchestration comes in. When operating at scale, you need a platform that automates all the tasks related to the management, deployment, and scaling of container clusters.
