Listing your locations with Python – Square Corner Blog – Medium

Getting your location details should be the easiest part of your integration. Listing your locations programmatically can be important for managing applications for large companies or even multiple companies. Here is how you can get a list of your locations using our Python SDK. Prepare The first thing you’ll need to do is make sure that you have python working and install Square’s Python SDK. You can find the installation instructions here: https://github.com/square/connect-python-sdk#installation–usage The Code You’ll have to replace the…

Big Data Processing at Spotify: The Road to Scio (Part 1)

This is the first part of a 2 part blog series. In this series we will talk about Scio, a Scala API for Apache Beam and Google Cloud Dataflow, and how we built the majority of our new data pipelines on Google Cloud with Scio. Scio> Ecclesiastical Latin IPA: /ˈʃi.o/, [ˈʃiː.o], [ˈʃi.i̯o]> Verb: I can, know, understand, have knowledge. Over the past couple of years, Spotify has been migrating our infrastructure from on premise to Google Cloud. One key consideration…

Drone hit Canadian airliner: minister

A view of Quebec City taken on July, 16 2017 A Canadian passenger plane landed safely after it was hit by a drone in the first case of its kind in the country, a cabinet minister said Sunday. With increasing numbers of unmanned aerial devices in the skies, collisions are still rare, but authorities around the world are looking at ways to keep jetliners out of harm’s way. The Canadian incident happened last Thursday when a drone collided with…

Organizing Effective Remote Team Meetings

Meetings are essential for the effective running of any business. One of the main things that meetings help to do is to ensure that everyone is on the same page about what is happening in the company. Just because you are managing a remote team does not mean that you should not hold meetings. If anything, you should have more regular meetings. To have the best meeting with positive results, here are some of the best practices to keep in…

How scientists used NASA data to predict the corona of the Aug. 21 Total Solar Eclipse — ScienceDaily

When the total solar eclipse swept across the United States on Aug. 21, 2017, NASA satellites captured a diverse set of images from space. But days before the eclipse, some NASA satellites also enabled scientists to predict what the corona — the Sun’s outer atmosphere — would look like during the eclipse, from the ground. In addition to offering a case study to test our predictive abilities, the predictions also enabled some eclipse scientists to choose their study targets in…

MS risk in children spotted with MRI brain scans — ScienceDaily

By the time multiple sclerosis (MS) is diagnosed in children, it may be difficult to prevent the disabilities and relapses that come with the disease. In a new Yale School of Medicine study, researchers examined MRI brain scans to identify children at high risk of developing MS before symptoms appear, which may lead to earlier diagnosis and treatment. Published in the November issue of the journal Neurology: Neuroimmunology & Neuroinflammation, the study of 38 children at 16 sites in six…

Detailed look at 2-D structure of turbulence in tokamaks — ScienceDaily

A key hurdle for fusion researchers is understanding turbulence, the ripples and eddies that can cause the superhot plasma that fuels fusion reactions to leak heat and particles and keep fusion from taking place. Comprehending and reducing turbulence will facilitate the development of fusion as a safe, clean and abundant source of energy for generating electricity from power plants around the world. At the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), scientists have assembled a large database…

How do you like them Apples? – Medium Engineering

An engineer’s reflection on her foray into iOS at Medium I kicked off my career at Medium as an iOS software engineer. This has come as a surprise to many of my friends, who know how much I love playing with Python and that I’ve exclusively written HTML, CSS, and JavaScript in my internships and open source contributions. So why am I doing iOS development? I want to dabble in a broad array of engineering roles before I make a deep…

NASA sounding rocket instrument spots signatures of long-sought small solar flares — ScienceDaily

Like most solar sounding rockets, the second flight of the FOXSI instrument — short for Focusing Optics X-ray Solar Imager — lasted 15 minutes, with just six minutes of data collection. But in that short time, the cutting-edge instrument found the best evidence to date of a phenomenon scientists have been seeking for years: signatures of tiny solar flares that could help explain the mysterious extreme heating of the Sun’s outer atmosphere. FOXSI detected a type of light called hard…

Importance of studying sleep and eating in tandem — ScienceDaily

A new study from scientists on the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) offers important insights into possible links between sleep and hunger — and the benefits of studying the two in tandem. A related paper from the same lab is providing researchers an accessible tool for pursuing further investigations involving multiple fruit fly behaviors. While many humans enjoy a daily caffeine fix, scientists have found that caffeine repels Drosophila melanogaster — a species of fruit fly often…
