Computer Science major Drew Patel talks with judge Mindy McCubbin after Tuesday’s Entrepreneur Quest competition. The program began back in the fall as part of UM System President Mun Choi’s push to support entrepreneurially minded students. The 10…

Authorization at LinkedIn’s Scale | LinkedIn Engineering

LinkedIn members entrust us with their personal data and we are committed to working hard every day to maintain that trust within a safe, professional environment. One crucial aspect to earn and maintain that trust lies in how well we secure our online systems and protect our data from unauthorized exposure. LinkedIn runs a microservice architecture, in which each microservice retrieves data from other sources and serves it to its clients. These calls often retrieve or process data that our…

Cost-effective method for hydrogen fuel production process — ScienceDaily

Nanoparticles composed of nickel and iron have been found to be more effective and efficient than other, more costly materials when used as catalysts in the production of hydrogen fuel through water electrolysis. The discovery was made by University of Arkansas researchers Jingyi Chen, associate professor of physical chemistry, and Lauren Greenlee, assistant professor of chemical engineering, as well as colleagues from Brookhaven National Lab and Argonne National Lab. The researchers demonstrated that using nanocatalysts composed of nickel and iron…

Introducing Two New Tools for Detecting HTTPS Interception

The practice of HTTPS interception continues to be commonplace on the Internet. HTTPS interception has encountered scrutiny, most notably in the 2017 study “The Security Impact of HTTPS Interception” and the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT)  warning that the technique weakens security. In this blog post, we provide a brief recap of HTTPS interception and introduce two new tools: MITMEngine, an open-source library for HTTPS interception detection, and MALCOLM, a dashboard displaying metrics about HTTPS interception we observe…

What it’s Like to Intern at Etsy? – Part I

I secretly like seeing people’s surprise when I told them that I chose to intern at Etsy because it was the only company that asked for a cover letter. I enjoyed every second of filling out my Etsy software engineering internship application because I felt like I was really telling my story to a company that cared about my whole self. I interned at Etsy during summer 2016 and started working full-time after I graduated from college in 2017. The…

‘Clear similarities’ between Boeing crashes in Ethiopia, Indonesia

The FAA insists it followed standard procedures in certifying the Boeing 737 MAX Flight recorder data recovered from the wreckage of Boeing 737 MAX planes that crashed in Ethiopia and Indonesia shows “clear similarities,” Addis Ababa said Sunday as the US maker announced it was finalizing a software update for its under fire anti-stall system. Pressure was mounting meanwhile on the US Federal Aviation Administration, which insisted it had followed standard procedures in certifying the plane model, even as it…

Commonly used heart drug associated with increased risk of sudden cardiac arrest — ScienceDaily

A drug commonly used to treat high blood pressure and angina (chest pain) is associated with an increased risk of out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest, according to results from the European Sudden Cardiac Arrest network (ESCAPE-NET) presented today at EHRA 2019.1 Sudden cardiac arrest causes around half of cardiac deaths in Europe and one in five natural deaths. The heart stops pumping after a cardiac arrhythmia (ventricular fibrillation/tachycardia); this is lethal in minutes if untreated. ESCAPE-NET was set up to find…

Ethiopia crash investigation needs ‘considerable’ time: minister

The crash of Flight ET 302 minutes into its flight to Nairobi on March 10 killed all onboard and caused the worldwide grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft model involved in the disaster Identifying the cause of the deadly Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed 157 people and caused the worldwide grounding of a brand-new Boeing aircraft model will take “considerable time,” an Ethiopian government minister said Saturday. The crash of Flight ET 302 minutes into its flight to…

Nitrogen pollution’s path to streams weaves through more forests (and faster) than suspected — ScienceDaily

Nitrogen in rain and snow falls to the ground where, in theory, it is used by forest plants and microbes. New research by a scientific collaboration led by the USDA Forest Service shows that more nitrogen from rain and snow is making it to more streams than previously believed and flowing downstream in forests of the United States and Canada. The study, “Unprocessed atmospheric nitrate in waters of the Northern Forest Region in the USA and Canada,” was published this…

LinkedIn Contributes Open19 Technology to the Open Compute Project

Project Olympus and Open19 technology Part of the Open19 technology specification includes support for Project Olympus (a project developed by Microsoft and contributed to OCP in 2017). This integration enables Open19 to have a cloud-based, high-end Olympus-based server supporting high memory and high core count CPUs. The combination of Open19 and Project Olympus allows data centers of any scale to enjoy high efficiency and advanced open standards with their existing EIA19” racks. What is next? Over the last three years,…
