Norfolk and Richmond, Virginia: Cloudflare's 152nd and 153rd cities

Virginia has a very important place in Internet history, as well as the history of Cloudflare’s network. Northern Virginia, in the area around Ashburn VA, has for a long time been core to Internet infrastructure. In the early 1990’s, MAE-East (Metropolitan-Area-Exchange East) , an Internet Exchange Point (IXP) was established. MAE-East and West were some of the earliest IXPs. Internet Exchange Points are crucial interconnection points for ISPs and other Internet Networks to interconnect and exchange traffic. Eco-systems have grown…

Fixing an old hack – why we are bumping the IPv6 MTU

Back in 2015 we deployed ECMP routing – Equal Cost Multi Path – within our datacenters. This technology allowed us to spread traffic heading to a single IP address across multiple physical servers. You can think about it as a third layer of load balancing. First we split the traffic across multiple IP addresses with DNS. Then we split the traffic across multiple datacenters with Anycast. Finally, we split the traffic across multiple servers with ECMP. photo by Sahra by-sa/2.0…

New model suggests natural healing cycle becomes blocked by cellular miscommunication, allowing conditions like cancer, diabetes and some neurological disorders to persist; a small but dramatic autism trial offers evidence — ScienceDaily

Much of modern Western medicine is based upon the treatment of acute, immediate harm, from physical injury to infections, from broken bones and the common cold to heart and asthma attacks. But progress in treating chronic illness, where the cause of the problem is often unknown — and, in fact, may no longer even be present — has lagged. Chronic conditions like cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease defy easy explanation, let alone remedy. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention…

Mathematicians suggest exchanging wireless energy for data collected by sensors in mobile devices

Working principle of the system described in the article. Credit: Olga Galinina RUDN mathematicians have suggested an incentive to encourage participants in mobile crowd-sensing. The data collected by sensors built into personal mobile devices (such as smartphones) can be exchanged for wireless battery charging services. The work was published in IEEE Wireless Communications. The majority of modern smartphones are already equipped with sensors that register environmental information such as barometers, magnetometers, noise and light sensors, thermometers, and even harmful radiation…

Unravelling the action of the DDX11/CHLR1 helicase enzyme in DNA repair — ScienceDaily

Researchers from Tokyo Metropolitan University and the FIRC Institute of Molecular Oncology (IFOM) in Italy have uncovered a previously unknown function of the DDX11 helicase enzyme. Mutations in the gene which codes for DDX11 are known to be implicated in Warsaw Breakage Syndrome. They showed that DDX11 plays an important role in DNA repair, and functions as a backup to the Fanconi Anemia (FA) pathway, whose malfunction is associated with another life-debilitating condition. DNA plays a central role in the…

Periods of fasting can protect against obesity and diabetes — ScienceDaily

Scientists at the Salk Institute found that mice lacking the biological clocks thought to be necessary for a healthy metabolism could still be protected against obesity and metabolic diseases by having their daily access to food restricted to a 10-hour window. The work, which appeared in the journal Cell Metabolism on August 30, 2018, suggests that the health problems associated with disruptions to animals’ 24-hour rhythms of activity and rest — which in humans is linked to eating for most…

Trial offers hope for disease with limited treatment options — ScienceDaily

Results from a clinical trial of more than 250 participants with progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) revealed that ibudilast was better than a placebo in slowing down brain shrinkage. The study also showed that the main side effects of ibudilast were gastrointestinal and headaches. The study was supported by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), part of the National Institutes of Health, and published in the New England Journal of Medicine. “These findings provide a glimmer of hope…
