Inside Connect: Airbnb’s Engineering Apprenticeship Program | by Jacqui Watts | Airbnb Engineering & Data Science | Mar, 2021

Hello! We’re excited that you’re here to learn more about the Connect program. Before we share details, though, we’d like to introduce ourselves. We’re Beti Gathegi and Jacqui Watts — a team of two whose purpose at Airbnb is to help bring this program to life. We couldn’t be more proud of the apprentices that we’ve gotten to work with to-date, and that’s why we want to share more, so that we can continue to attract even more amazing software…

Researchers introduce a new generation of tiny, agile drones

Insects’ remarkable acrobatic traits help them navigate the aerial world, with all of its wind gusts, obstacles, and general uncertainty. Credit: Kevin Yufeng Chen If you’ve ever swatted a mosquito away from your face, only to have it return again (and again and again), you know that insects can be remarkably acrobatic and resilient in flight. Those traits help them navigate the aerial world, with all of its wind gusts, obstacles, and general uncertainty. Such traits are also hard to…

New energy efficiency codes set path toward green buildings

PNNL’s expert analysis and defense during the IECC hearings proved critical to the success of the energy credit proposal and its subsequent approval. Credit: Pixachi | Shutterstock.com The next office building you visit may have innovative technology making it substantially greener thanks to the help of energy efficiency experts at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL). In partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Building Technologies Office, PNNL provided expert analysis and technical background for some of the most ambitious building…

4D bioengineering materials bend, curve like natural tissue — ScienceDaily

Tissue engineering has long-depended on geometrically static scaffolds seeded with cells in the lab to create new tissues and even organs. The scaffolding material — usually a biodegradable polymer structure — is supplied with cells and the cells, if supplied with the right nutrients, then develop into tissue as the underlying scaffold biodegrades. But this model ignores the extraordinarily dynamic morphological processes that underlie the natural development of tissues. Now, researchers at the University of Illinois Chicago have developed new…

An autonomous high-speed transporter for tomorrow’s logistics

With artificial intelligence, LoadRunners can coordinate to jointly transport loads without dropping their cargo. Credit: Fraunhofer IML The Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics IML is developing a new generation of automated guided vehicles. “LoadRunners” use artificial intelligence and communicate via 5G to organize themselves as a swarm and execute jobs independently. Able to sort large quantities of packages, this high-speed transporter can serve booming online and mail-order businesses well. The coronavirus crisis has given Germany’s e-commerce a big…

Designing a Better Kubernetes Experience for Developers : Spotify Engineering

March 1, 2021 Published by Matthew Clarke TLDR; If you’re deploying a service with Kubernetes, you shouldn’t have to use all of your cluster management skills just to perform everyday developer tasks (like seeing which pods are experiencing errors or checking autoscaler limits). Backstage Kubernetes simplifies your deployment workflow by connecting to your existing Kubernetes implementation and aggregating the status of all your deployments into a single view — even across multiple clusters in multiple regions. …

6 Tips for Starting a Successful Business

Starting a successful business is not going to be an easy thing to do. There are going to be so many factors for you to try and figure out. From getting the right software to where you will conduct your business (if in person at all), or even what your logo and website will look like. We don’t want you to get lost in the world of trying to get your business up and running. So, we have a few…

Radioactivity in meteorites sheds light on origin of heaviest elements in our solar system — ScienceDaily

A team of international researchers went back to the formation of the solar system 4.6 billion years ago to gain new insights into the cosmic origin of the heaviest elements on the periodic table. Led by scientists who collaborate as part of the International Research Network for Nuclear Astrophysics (IReNA)  and the Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics — Center for the Evolution of the Elements (JINA-CEE), the study is published in the latest issue of the journal Science. Heavy elements…

Flow-based monitoring for Magic Transit

Network-layer DDoS attacks are on the rise, prompting security teams to rethink their L3 DDoS mitigation strategies to prevent business impact. Magic Transit protects customers’ entire networks from DDoS attacks by placing our network in front of theirs, either always on or on demand. Today, we’re announcing new functionality to improve the experience for on-demand Magic Transit customers: flow-based monitoring. Flow-based monitoring allows us to detect threats and notify customers when they’re under attack so they can activate Magic Transit…

Researchers have developed a method to quantify transfer RNAs — ScienceDaily

Transfer RNAs (tRNAs) deliver specific amino acids to ribosomes during translation of messenger RNA into proteins. The abundance of tRNAs can therefore have a profound impact on cell physiology, but measuring the amount of each tRNA in cells has been limited by technical challenges. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry have now overcome these limitations with mim-tRNAseq, a method that can be used to quantify tRNAs in any organism and will help improve our understanding of tRNA regulation…
