Facebook video adds AV1 support | Engineering Blog | Facebook Code

The recent release of AV1, a new open, royalty-free video format, promises to be an important step forward in compression efficiency. Following our publication of detailed real-world AV1 benchmarking tests, Facebook is now adding trial support for the AV1 format to Facebook video. This allows engineers and the general public to view sample AV1 content today. Browser support for the official AV1 release version is still under development, and encoding speed still lags behind current encoder alternatives, such as x264…

Drug fights graft-versus-host-disease in mice — ScienceDaily

An investigational drug in clinical trials for rheumatoid arthritis prevents a common, life-threatening side effect of stem cell transplants, new research from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis shows. Studying mice, the researchers found the drug prevented what’s known as graft-versus-host disease, a debilitating, sometimes lethal condition that develops when transplanted stem cells attack the body’s own organs or tissues. About half of patients receiving donor stem cells develop graft-versus-host disease, which can linger for months or years…

3-D printed food could change how we eat

A: Food materials are pulverized under ultra-low temperature close to -100 degrees Celsius. B: Micro-sized food materials are reconstructed into a porous film-shaped material by jetting bonding an agent under optimized water content and heat conditions. The process to build film-type materials is repeated layer by layer to form to a three-dimensional food block.C: The exterior of foods and internal microstructure of a food block with specific porosity is designed to give texture with controlled human body absorption while eating…

CSS at Scale: LinkedIn’s New Open Source Projects Take on Stylesheet Performance

Example source and output of CSS Blocks. Text content here.  Development of CSS Blocks and OptiCSS Following the realization that selector performance and file size were hurting our site speed, we needed to make progress quickly to alleviate the issue. The team worked hard to establish new best practices, including converting our application to use BEM-style selectors and to prefer shared class names in our templates over mixins in our stylesheets. The choice to adopt BEM was controversial; many developers…

New invention revolutionizes exoskeletons

PhD student Miguel Nobre Castro with the award-winning CXD joint. Credit: Jakob Brodersen Aalborg researchers have developed a new type of mechanical joint that can support shoulders and hips smarter than ever before. The joint which is compact enough to be worn hidden under clothing, has already won international honors and will likely be the standard in future wearable exoskeletons A compact joint that can be pulled out in an arc around a sphere. This may not sound like much,…

We use Cloudflare Access to secure our own internal tools instead of a VPN. As someone that does a lot of work on the train, I can attest this is awesome (though I might be biased). You can see it in action below. Instead of having to connect to a VPN to reach our internal jira, we just login with our Google account and we are good to go: Before today, you could setup Access if you used GSuite, Okta…
