Building Blockchain Network From Scratch Using Hyperledger – Part 3 [Tutorial]

In the last blog, we created and deployed our own business network “Trading Card” and tested it on our network. Progressing further on the same, in this blog, we will take a step ahead and learn how to enhance the experience of interaction with the business network by using REST API server. Further ahead, we will read about how to generate a REST API server and use an angular application with it. What is a REST API Server? An API…

Screaming Circuits: A few Predictions for the Next Decade

It’s now the eve of 2019 and about all I’ll say on the coming year is that we are in for a wild ride. The last few years have been pretty crazy, and 2019 looks to continue that trend, but amped up – 2019 will go to eleven. Don’t worry though. When it is at its worst, just ask yourself what we did the last time the world came to an end. Despite such anticipation, I’m still quite optimistic. The…

Improving request debugging in Cloudflare Workers

At Cloudflare, we are constantly looking into ways to improve development experience for Workers and make it the most convenient platform for writing serverless code. As some of you might have already noticed either from our public release notes, on cloudflareworkers.com or in your Cloudflare Workers dashboard, there recently was a small but important change in the look of the inspector. But before we go into figuring out what it is, let’s take a look at our standard example on…

Unravelling mystery of how, when DNA replicates — ScienceDaily

A team of Florida State University researchers has unlocked a decades-old mystery about how a critical cellular process is regulated and what that could mean for the future study of genetics. In cells, DNA and its associated material replicate at regular intervals, a process essential to all living organisms. This contributes to everything from how the body responds to disease to hair color. DNA replication was identified in the late 1950s, but since then researchers across the globe have come…

Engineering Ethics Blog: The Gatwick Drone Incident: Technology Outpaces Policy

Gatwick Airport is the UK’s second busiest flight facility after Heathrow, and last Wednesday, Dec. 19, it was accommodating thousands of holiday travelers.  Around 9 PM, an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), commonly known as a drone, was sighted in the airspace dangerously near the airport’s single runway.  Just this year, the UK prohibited drone flights within 1 km of airports, and this drone was well within that limit.  No details are yet available about exactly what kind of drone it…

The Internet Mince Pie Data Base: 2018 Edition

In December 2017 we unveiled the true potential of Cloudflare’s scale: to find the best commercially available mince pie and let the world know about it. In 2018 we’ve all been extremely busy helping Cloudflare & our customers and therefore we left it very late this year. Uncomfortably late. If you want to know the best mince pie to buy in 2018 right now, skip straight to the bottom of this post where we reveal the winner. If you want…

Cape Technical Deep Dive | Dropbox Tech Blog

We introduced Cape in a previous post. In a nutshell, Cape is a framework for enabling real-time asynchronous event processing at a large scale with strong guarantees. It has been over a year since the system was launched. Today Cape is a critical component for Dropbox infrastructure. It operates with both high performance and reliability at a very large scale. Here are a few key metrics, Cape is: running on thousands of servers across the continent subscribing to over 30 different…

DNS over TLS: Encrypting DNS end-to-end

As a first step toward encrypting the last portion of internet traffic that has historically been cleartext, we have partnered with Cloudflare DNS on a pilot project. This pilot takes advantage of the benefits of Transport Layer Security (TLS) — a widely adopted and proven mechanism for providing authentication and confidentiality between two parties over an insecure channel — in conjunction with DNS. This solution, DNS over TLS (DoT), would encrypt and authenticate the remaining portion of web traffic. With…

Mizzou IMSE to offer online master’s degree next fall

IMSE recently received approval from the University of Missouri to offer an online master’s degree in industrial engineering beginning in Fall 2019. Mizzou Engineering’s online educational offerings continue to grow at a rapid pace, and the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering  is at the forefront. The department recently received approval from the University of Missouri to offer an online master’s degree in industrial engineering (MSIE) beginning in Fall 2019. MSIE, a master’s degree program in biological engineering and…

Exercise-induced hormone irisin triggers bone remodeling in mice — ScienceDaily

Exercise has been touted to build bone mass, but exactly how it actually accomplishes this is a matter of debate. Now, researchers show that an exercise-induced hormone activates cells that are critical for bone remodeling in mice. A study appearing in the journal Cell on December 13 identifies a receptor for irisin, an exercise hormone, and shows that irisin impacts sclerostin in mice, a major cellular regulator of bone structure in humans. The work may inform future treatments for osteoporosis,…
