      La vidéo aborde la psychologie de l'alimentation et son lien avec les troubles alimentaires. Elle explique comment les processus psychologiques tels que la récompense, l'inhibition et l'interoception influencent les choix alimentaires et l'apport alimentaire. La présentation souligne que ces processus peuvent être perturbés, menant à des comportements alimentaires désordonnés, qui peuvent varier de légers écarts par rapport à la normale à des troubles alimentaires cliniquement diagnostiqués. L'obésité et les troubles du spectre de la boulimie sont associés à une faible maîtrise cognitive et à une forte réactivité aux récompenses alimentaires, tandis que les troubles restrictifs comme l'anorexie nerveuse montrent le contraire.

    1. many hospitals started moving their dcom infrastructures to the cloud because it's cheaper it's easier it's faster it's good so they did the shift and they used the Legacy protocol dcom without sufficient security

      Protocol intended for closed networks now found on open cloud servers

    1. The three biggest universal cloud serviceproviders (CSPs) operating in the EU – Google,Amazon and Microsoft – have a combinedmarket share of 70 per cent. Europeanalternatives to these American CSPs – alsoknown as hyperscalers – are limited, both innumber and in scale

      GAM have 70% market share in Europe wrt cloud (though the relevant customer groups seems to be govs here, how is their market share there?) Says EU alternatives are limited in number and scale but does not mention any. Are some mentioned further on? Also note that EC is not aiming for EU universal cloud services but very deliberately for federated cloud and services. So this comparison may not be al that useful, as the EU will not seek to have EU based GAM style providers, but will seek to make GAM style providers too unwieldy to be relevant.

    2. European governments have thus been pushingfor reduced reliance on China’s Huawei forcritical parts of telecommunication networks inthe shift from 4G to 5G networks.

      The article calls 'a 5g moment' the moment of realisation that dependencies in a tech may erode strategic position, by letting critical infrastructure to be controlled by tech firms that can be influenced by other governments. In the case of 5g it's Huawei and Chinese gov, in the case of cloud it's GAM and US gov. This is not a new notion, it is why the EU digital and data legal framework was created the past 4 yrs, so why this paper now?

    3. Cloudsovereignty requires quality technology, but also trust, security and diversification – threeelements that are not necessarily ensured by the current American offers

      DMA level cloud services in 3rd countries provide reliable technology but do not bring trust, security and diversification at a level needed for cloud sovereignty

    1. 36% of Salesforce customers that have bought other companies’ cloud products – like Service Cloud, Sales or Marketing Cloud – have also purchased Community Cloud. In addition to that, 21% of respondents intend to purchase Community Cloud in the very near future. If this is true, more than 50% of the most active Salesforce customers will use Community Cloud actively for their business needs very soon. And all of that within two years of the product launch!

      These numbers suggest a growing preference for Community Cloud among Salesforce's most active user base, so that underscores a substantial opportunity for businesses to enhance their Salesforce experience through Community Cloud integration.

    1. For all data to be in one place and for effective management of all the processes, as well as streamlined idea implementation, the Idea Management System is created. This is a digital platform designed to improve the process of generating, evaluating, and tracking ideas. It provides a centralized location where users can submit their ideas, and where managers can review and evaluate them. IMS tools also provide valuable analytics, allowing managers to track the progress of ideas and identify areas for improvement.

      Similar to the Idea Management System (IMS) discussed earlier, the Partner Portal serves as a centralized digital platform. Its purpose is to enhance the partner program by providing a unified space for partners to engage, collaborate, and access resources.

    1. In a recent report into what tech partners want, 58% of partners cite a lack of communications as a factor in why partnerships don’t reach expectations. Communication challenges include channels and frequency.

      The report highlights issues with channels and frequency as primary communication challenges. Ensuring a streamlined and efficient communication process within the partner portal is crucial for overcoming these hurdles. It's evident that resolving these communication issues is fundamental to fostering successful tech partnerships and optimizing the overall effectiveness of the partner program.

    1. Accessing Ideas in the Salesforce Lightning Experience (LEX) has become increasingly challenging for users, as they are required to switch to Classic in order to access ideas on their online community. This process of switching back and forth between Classic and Lightning is highly inconvenient and poses a significant hurdle for Lightning users.

      The current challenge of accessing ideas in Salesforce Lightning Experience (LEX) hinders this objective, forcing users to inconveniently switch to Classic. This disrupts the flow of feedback, slowing down the process and creating hurdles for Lightning users. To optimize the system, it's essential to streamline idea access within Lightning, eliminating the need for users to switch back and forth.

    1. For search engines to find your site, it must be at the root level. If your site is not at the root level, meaning it has a URL prefix, you need to create a root site and submit the sitemap accordingly. This is crucial for proper indexing. Please note, The address for a root-level site has the format https://site_URL.

      If your site has a URL prefix, it's crucial to create a root site and submit the sitemap accordingly. This step is pivotal in facilitating proper indexing. Take the time to establish a root-level site to enhance your SEO strategy, making it easier for search engines to discover and rank your Salesforce Experience Cloud site. This small but critical adjustment will significantly boost your site's overall search engine performance.

    1. For an example of an unintended consequence, let’s say the result of your optimization project is spare capacity at a cloud provider. Then that capacity is then offered on the spot market, which lowers the spot price, and someone uses those instances for a CPU intensive workload like crypto or AI training, which they only run when the cost is very low. The end result is that capacity could end up using more power than when your were leaving it idle, and the net consequence is an increase in carbon emissions for that cloud region.

      This is because capacity, utilisation and power used are related, but different concepts.

      Your capacity, which you share back to the pool is then avaiable to someone else, who ends up buying it to use for a task that has a higher average utilisation, resulting in more power being used in absolute terms, even if less is attributed to you.

      This also raises the question - who is responsible - the customer for making the capacity available, for the cloud provider who accepts this workload?

      The cloud providers get to set the terms of service for using their platform.

    1. Salesforce provides a set of cloud-based resources so you can build your own applications and websites easily, cheaply, and fast. This is where Salesforce Experience Cloud comes in. Experience Cloud allows you to create branded sites connected to your CRM without writing code, thereby addressing different purposes and achieving multiple online objectives. Eliminate worries about which infrastructure, operating systems, or development and deployment tools to use. With Experience Cloud, you have everything you need under one roof.

      It's a user-friendly and cost-effective solution, not only from a development perspective but also makes it easier to deploy changes like adding site languages, access permissions etc.

    1. If you want to give your site members access to your Content Libraries, you can use the Libraries component, which is available in templates such as Customer Service, Build Your Own (Aura), Partner Central, and Customer Account Portal. Once the component is added, site members can view and open the libraries they have access to, either in a list view or a tile view.

      I've been exploring Salesforce Experience Cloud recently, and it's great to know that I can easily grant site members access to our Content Libraries using the Libraries component. This feature makes it easier to access the resources they need.

    1. Kamatera is a very good option to run a mail server because They don’t block port 25, so you can send unlimited emails (transactional email and newsletters) without spending money on SMTP relay service. Kamatera doesn’t have any SMTP limits. You can send a million emails per day. The IP address isn’t on any email blacklist. (At least this is true in my case. I chose the Dallas data center.) You definitely don’t want to be listed on the dreaded Microsoft Outlook IP blacklist or the spamrats blacklist. Some blacklists block an entire IP range and you have no way to delist your IP address from this kind of blacklist. You can edit PTR record to improve email deliverability. They allow you to send newsletters to your email subscribers with no hourly limits or daily limits, whatsoever. You can order multiple IP addresses for a single server. This is very useful for folks who need to send a large volume of emails. You can spread email traffic on multiple IP addresses to achieve better email deliverability.
    1. By incorporating the Navigation Menu component into your Salesforce Experience Cloud website, you can expand the scope of your navigation beyond conventional topics. This component allows you to include a diverse range of items in your navigation menu, such as Salesforce objects, topics, pages within your site, external URLs, and menu labels

      A well-structured navigation menu can significantly enhance user experience, making it easier for users to find the information they need and interact with the community.

    1. Custom Labels that are installed as part of a managed package cannot be edited or deleted due to the restrictions of managed packages. However, you can still override the existing translations for these labels.

      This flexibility ensures that businesses can tailor the platform to their specific linguistic needs, even within the constraints of managed packages.

    1. MFA Salesforce setup is not mandatory for your company’s Experience Cloud sites, employee communities, help portals, or e-commerce sites/storefronts. You have the flexibility to choose whether or not to activate MFA for Salesforce Experience Cloud external users accessing these sites. External users can be identified based on the following types of licenses:

      Implementing MFA is a proactive approach to ensuring that even if a password is compromised, unauthorized access can still be prevented.

    1. Salesforce Experience Cloud serves as a comprehensive platform that enables you to create various digital experiences, such as partner portals, volunteer communities, support portals, customer communities, and more. It’s a space that empowers your users to stay up-to-date with the latest information, access valuable resources, communicate with each other, provide feedback, or contact you to resolve their issues. Therefore, utilizing such an environment to host events will undoubtedly revolutionize the way they are managed and experienced.

      Interesting, should investigate this later, must be worthwhile

    1. El texto hace referencia a una convocatoria de huelga que se llevará a cabo el 8 de marzo contra el régimen de la nube, entendido como el poder computacional centralizado gestionado por grandes empresas tecnológicas como Amazon, Google y Microsoft. La huelga está convocada por una serie de proyectos autogestionados, organizaciones culturales, empresas privadas y otras constelaciones. En ella se pretende experimentar con la reducción al mínimo del uso de aplicaciones basadas en la nube, debatir las implicaciones del régimen de la nube, documentar el agotamiento de los recursos comunitarios por parte de la infraestructura de las grandes tecnologías, soñar con métodos alternativos de supervivencia exuberante y alegre, e imaginar redes locales para modos transnacionales de comunicación y funcionamiento en solidaridad transversal. El texto también proporciona información sobre la naturaleza y los riesgos del régimen de la nube y las razones detrás de la convocatoria de la huelga.

    1. It's like paying a quarter of your house's value for earthquake insurance when you don't live anywhere near a fault line.

      What paying for cloud in some scenarios really is

    2. The second is when your load is highly irregular. When you have wild swings or towering peaks in usage.

      2nd great use of cloud services

    3. The cloud excels at two ends of the spectrum, where only one end was ever relevant for us. The first end is when your application is so simple and low traffic that you really do save on complexity by starting with fully managed services.

    1. 新增了一个refresh范围的scope,同样用了一种独特的方式改变了Bean的管理方式,使得其可以通过外部化配置(.properties)的刷新,在应用不需要重启的情况下热加载新的外部化配置的值。
    1. @EnableBinding:将定义通道的接口绑定到某个 Bean 以便于我们可以通过该 Bean 操作通道进行发送和接收消息。

      注解的参数是class,class实例化成一个bean,通过bean来操作消息

    2. SpringCloud Stream 出生这么久还不广泛流行的原因之一就是,这一套技术体系涉及的东西太多了,万一生产环境出现什么疑难杂症,需要去阅读源码解决的话,这样的技术工作量是很超出预期的。

      缺点

    3. 不得不说集成 SpringCloud Function 之后,消息的发送和接收又迈进了一个崭新的阶段,但 <functionName> + -in- + <index> 这样的配置规约我觉得让我有些难受......甚至目前我认为 3.1 之前被废弃的注解方式也许更适合我们开发使用

      新趋势

    1. 我们看到两个消费者都收到了消息

      每个消费者实例都产生一个匿名的queue

    2. 创建一个消费者组

      实际上是将两个消费者实例绑定同一个queue

    3. 我们需要监听之前创建的通道greetingChannel。让我们为它创建一个绑定

      如果消费者和生产者在同一个实例中,会优先走本地调用,不会产生队列消息。消费者能正常接收mq消息

    1. A good layperson's overview of one effort to increase cloud albedo to counteract climate change. I think that lowering insolation is somehow missing the point of combatting climate change, but it's a legitimate approach that still needs a lot of research.

      What's particularly good about this article is how it manages to demonstrate how complex the problem is without smothering the reader in technobabble.

    1. Selon une étude du Fafiec en 2014, le logiciel libre joue un rôle de plus en plus important dans l'évolution des métiers du numérique. Et l'évolution du marché vers le Cloud Computing ne fait que renforcer ce modèle de développement.

      Logiciel libre important pour le developpement du cloud (attention date de 2014)

    1. The flotsam and jetsam of our digital queries and transactions, the flurry of electrons flitting about, warm the medium of air. Heat is the waste product of computation, and if left unchecked, it becomes a foil to the workings of digital civilization. Heat must therefore be relentlessly abated to keep the engine of the digital thrumming in a constant state, 24 hours a day, every day.

      "Cloud Computing" has a waste stream, and one of the waste streams is heat exhaust from servers. This is a poetic description of that waste stream.

    1. Linked Data bezieht sich dabei auf die technische Aufbereitung der Daten, so dass eine Verknüpfung (Linking) der Daten möglich ist. Das dabei zum Einsatz kommende Datenmodell ist RDF, das ursprünglich für das Semantic Web entwickelt wurde.
    1. The cloud advantage was one of the main pillars upon which the Stadia business was built, and there just isn't any evidence that this theoretical benefit is working to Google's benefit in real life.

      Has better latency != can have better latency. If there's demand for Stadia I assume they could use more of those data centers. But not sure the performance of Stadaia is the problem here, it's far far easier to use Stadia than Gefore NOW. Yet, people don't use it.

    2. "The fundamental benefit of our cloud-native infrastructure is that developers will be able to take advantage of hardware and power in ways never before possible, and that includes taking advantage of the power of multiple GPUs at once."

      Notably, this goal has been stated before, I believe by Microsoft for the Xbox 360? Running demanding workloads in the cloud elastically makes a lot more sense than buying hardware you rarely use.

    3. For Nvidia, the speed of the 3080 package makes for a solid sales pitch: This cloud PC is probably faster than your home system, so cloud gaming is worth it. Cloud gaming will always present a latency tradeoff, but that latency is easier to accept if you're getting otherwise-unattainable graphics quality along with it.

      Smart strategy by Nvidia.

    1. According to Wilder, a cloud-native application is any application that was architected to take full advantage of cloud platforms. These applications: Use cloud platform services. Scale horizontally. Scale automatically, using proactive and reactive actions. Handle node and transient failures without degrading. Feature non-blocking asynchronous communication in a loosely coupled architecture.

    1. the existing Wikimedia Cloud Services computing infrastructure (virtual private server (VPS)), the Toolforge hosting environment (platform as a service (PaaS))

      Wikimedia Cloud VPS is Infrastructure as a Service, whereas Toolforge is Platform as a Service.

      As explained in this article, PaaS is further away from on-premises than IaaS, and the user does not have to manage the operative system, middleware and runtimes.

    1. He said the new AI tutor platform collects “competency skills graphs” made by educators, then uses AI to generate learning activities, such as short-answer or multiple-choice questions, which students can access on an app. The platform also includes applications that can chat with students, provide coaching for reading comprehension and writing, and advise them on academic course plans based on their prior knowledge, career goals and interest

      I saw an AI Tutor demo as ASU+GSV in 2021 and it was still early stage. Today, the features highlighted here are yet to be manifested in powerful ways that are worth utilizing, however, I do believe the aspirations are likely to be realized, and in ways beyond what the product managers are even hyping. (For example, I suspect AI Tutor will one day be able to provide students feedback in the voice/tone of their specific instructor.)

SaaS vs PaaS vs IaaS: Choosing the Best Cloud Computing ModelAlina NechvolodE-Commerce & SaaS StrategistSaaSHomeBlogTechnologySaaS vs PaaS vs IaaS: Choosing the Best Cloud Computing ModelJun 12, 202011 min readThe usage of cloud computing has long been a standard practice for businesses. More and more companies harness the power of the software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) models. Thus, they can save on hardware and protect their sensitive information from hacking and internal data theft. In this article, we discuss the SaaS vs PaaS vs IaaS models and define their principal differences. What are the core parameters for comparison? They include primary characteristics, usage, the main benefits, and drawbacks.

    1. It’s hard to imagine now that only some decades ago people had to purchase and download software for all possible needs on their PCs. No matter the task, every new tool took some space on the hard drive and every program update was a nightmare. Why? Because it needed extra space and pretty much of your time and effort if something went wrong. Those days are gone thanks to cloud computing and SaaS products.These software as a service tools have changed the way we work and use software for good. As per recent forecasts, this market is going to reach $623 billion by 2023. So let’s find out what are SaaS perspectives in the near future, why it’s better to start off with a SaaS minimum viable product, and how to create a SaaS MVP.

      Every new piece of software took the space on a hard drive. The update usually took us several hours. Gladly, these days are in the past. The forecasts predict that the SaaS market will reach $623 billion by 2023. We have dived deep into the SaaS domain and created a guide on how to start with a cloud website.

    1. Patricio R Estevez-Soto. (2020, November 24). I’m really surprised to see a lot of academics sharing their working papers/pre-prints from cloud drives (i.e. @Dropbox @googledrive) 🚨Don’t!🚨 Use @socarxiv @SSRN @ZENODO_ORG, @OSFramework, @arxiv (+ other) instead. They offer persisent DOIs and are indexed by Google scholar [Tweet]. @prestevez. https://twitter.com/prestevez/status/1331029547811213316

    1. In general, for smaller businesses like startups, it is usually cheaper and better to use managed cloud services for your projects. 

      Advice for startups working with ML in production

    2. This has its pros and cons and may depend on your use case as well. Some of the pros to consider when considering using managed cloud services are:

      Pros of using cloud services:

      • They are cost-efficient
      • Quick setup and deployment
      • Efficient backup and recovery Cons of using cloud services:
      • Security issue, especially for sensitive data
      • Internet connectivity may affect work since everything runs online
      • Recurring costs
      • Limited control over tools

    1. There is a day when that day will come. There are only so many people on Earth and only so many hours a day to fiddle around with our phones, and at some point, the big clouds and hyperscalers of the world will constitute the majority of compute capacity and the rapacious need for capacity will abate.

      as fine a soliloquy to utility/grid compute & the folding down of the personal-computing age as has been written

      i keep hoping mankind will find it interesting to steal back this fire from the gods yet again, for their own ends

    1. cloud

      I noticed how Collins use ‘cloud’ constantly in this narrative, which perhaps foreshadowing a bad omen to come.

    1. the internet remembers

      wow uh, ironic. "software's long term cost" ad from GCP. from a company that only supports phones for 3 years, & which is notorious for deprecating services, this is probably not what you want to remind people of- that this cloud provider will pull the plug rather than pay upkeep cost of their services.

    1. This impacts monetization and purchasing at companies. Paying for a new design tool because it has new features for designers may not be a top priority. But if product managers, engineers, or even the CEO herself think it matters for the business as a whole—that has much higher priority and pricing leverage.

      If a tool benefits the entire team, vs. just the designer, it becomes an easier purchase decision.

    1. The section of code with exports.app = functions.https.onRequest(app); exposes your express application so that it can be accessed. If you don't have the exports section, your application won't start correctly
    2. Firebase Functions enables you to use the ExpressJS library to host a Serverless API. Serverless is just a term for a system that runs without physical servers. This is a bit of a misnomer because it technically does run on a server, however, you’re letting the provider handle the hosting aspect
    1. Just as journalists should be able to write about anything they want, comedians should be able to do the same and tell jokes about anything they please

      where's the line though? every output generates a feedback loop with the hivemind, turning into input to ourselves with our cracking, overwhelmed, filters

      it's unrealistic to wish everyone to see jokes are jokes, to rely on journalists to generate unbiased facts, and politicians as self serving leeches, err that's my bias speaking

    1. et on peut ainsi éviter de s’inquiéter, par exemple

      au contraire, dans l'imaginaire social, je remarque qu'on se méfie de plus en plus «du cloud» (sans pour autant être proactif…) – l'exemple des photos leakées est probablement celui qui circule le plus.

    1. Lightning Platform allows you to build employee-facing apps to customize and extend your Salesforce CRM. With Heroku you can go even further, building pixel-perfect applications for your customers in open-source languages like Java, Ruby, Python, PHP, JavaScript, and Go.

      Lightning: internal apps, employee-facing<br> Heroku: non-internal open-source apps, taking advantage of organization infrastructure and data

      Of course, if not all employees are Salesforce users/licensed, then a "non-internal" app could still be an organizational app, but without having to secure expensive Salesforce licenses. Also, if one wanted to build an external "customer" engagement community it could be done without needing a Salesforce Community and associated community licenses.

    1. Unfortunately, as I understand, AWS Event Bridge does not support CloudEvents for the time being. Though of course it may change. For example Azure Event Grid suppports CloudEvents, beside its own proprietary schema.

      Cloud Events as a standard/convention for multi cloud triggers. I didn't know this existed.

    1. To return data after an asynchronous operation, return a promise.

      I just struggled for a few hours trying to resolve some errors about CORS and 500 INTERNAL errors.

      This line is a bit misleading.

      In trying to get things up and running, I was returning a simple JSON object rather than a Promise. According to what I found, even if you don't have any async work, you still need to return a Promise from your function.

    1. One of the largest-scalestudies exploring this problem was undertaken at the University of Wash-ington (Fidel et al., 2000), where researchers investigated the information-seeking behavior of teams from two different companies, Boeing andMicrosoft (Poltrock et al., 2003). They found that each team had differentcommunication and information-seeking practices, and that current infor-mation systems are oriented toward individual rather than collaborativeinformation-seeking activities. In practice, though, information seeking isoften embedded in collaboration

      SBTF uses Google Sheets and Docs for information collection and shared documentation. Though Google products are billed as cloud-computing collaboration tools, it would be interesting to know if these systems remain oriented in individual information-seeking activities rather than collaborative.

    1. By eliminating cold servers and cold containers with request-based pricing, we’ve also eliminated the high cost of idle capacity and helped our customers achieve dramatically higher utilization and better economics.

      Cold servers and cold containers is a term I haven't heard before, but it sums up the waste of excess capacity nicely

    1. a personal computer to a server or onto theInternet. File distribution is the point of conjuncture between organismand machine and marks a technology of the self that does not begin withthe individual interior subject but rather with what Doyle calls “inhumanexteriority”

      I feel like there is something to be said about the Cloud ("the Cloud is just somebody else's computer") that could be said to expand on this point and develop it a bit further, but I don't know enough about the Cloud and file sharing to articulate what that might be . . .

    1. using Cloud based services, despite their creators best intentions has considerable risks sinceAny Cloud based approach creates massive hugely attractive fragile Honeypots

    1. Shared information

      The “social”, with an embedded emphasis on the data part of knowledge building and a nod to solidarity. Cloud computing does go well with collaboration and spelling out the difference can help lift some confusion.

    1. Apple’s superior position on privacy needs to be the icing on the cake, not their primary selling point.

      Yeah... 'cause apparently no one actually cares...

    1. Today the move to cloud computing is replicating some of that early rhetoric—except, of course, that companies now reject any analogy with utilities, since that might open up the possibility of a publicly run, publicly controlled infrastructure.

      That's a distinct possibility - if the infrastructure could be built with trust. Keep hoping.

    1. Specifically, we explore three key usage modes (see Figure 1): • HPC in the Cloud , in which researchers out - source entire applications to current public and/ or private Cloud platforms; • HPC plus Cloud , focused on exploring scenarios in which clouds can complement HPC/grid re - sources with cloud services to support science and engineering application workflows—for ex - ample, to support heterogeneous requirements or unexpected spikes in demand; and • HPC as a Service , focused on exposing HPC/grid resources using elastic on-demand cloud abstrac - tions, aiming to combine the flexibility of cloud models with the performance of HPC systems

      Three key usage modes for HPC & Cloud:

      • HPC in the Cloud
      • HPC plus Cloud
      • HPC as a Service
