Scalable SQL and NoSQL Data Stores - Rick Cattell Home Page

In this paper, we examine a number of SQL and socalled “NoSQL” data stores designed to scale simple OLTP-style application loads over many servers. Originally motivated by Web 2.0 applications, these systems are designed to scale to thousands or millions of users doing updates as well as reads, in contrast to traditional DBMSs and data warehouses. We contrast the new systems on their data model, consistency mechanisms, storage mechanisms, durability guarantees, availability, query support, and other dimensions. These systems typically sacrifice some of these dimensions, e.g. database-wide transaction consistency, in order to achieve others, e.g. higher availability and scalability. Note: Bibliographic references for systems are not listed, but URLs for more information can be found in the System References table at the end of this paper. Caveat: Statements in this paper are based on sources and documentation that may not be reliable, and the systems described are “moving targets,” so some statements may be incorrect. Verify through other sources before depending on information here. Nevertheless, we hope this comprehensive survey is useful! Check for future corrections on the author’s web site cattell.net/datastores. Disclosure: The author is on the technical advisory board of Schooner Technologies and has a consulting business advising on scalable databases.

Wall Street Journal Publishes Chair's Letter to the Editor (May 7, 2014)

Today the Wall Street Journal published a letter to the editor from Commission chair Judge Patti B. Saris regarding Mortimer Zuckerman’s op-ed “Harsh Sentencing, Overstuffed Prisons—It’s Time for Reform” (May 3, 2014): Sentencing Guidelines Are Being Intelligently Adjusted The amendment originated with the U.S. Sentencing Commission and is something we carefully considered over several years. Regarding Mortimer Zuckerman’s “Harsh Sentencing, Overstuffed Prisons—It’s Time for Reform” (op-ed, May 3): Mr. Zuckerman mentions a Justice Department sentencing panel proposing an amendment to federal guidelines. In fact, it was the U.S. Sentencing Commission, an independent, bipartisan agency that is part of the judicial branch, which voted unanimously on April 10 to amend the federal sentencing guidelines to modestly reduce sentences for the majority of federal drug offenders. We appreciated the support for this change from the Justice Department and others ranging from bipartisan members of Congress to the Federal Public and Community Defenders to Right on Crime, but the amendment originated with the commission and is something we carefully considered over several years. This amendment has been transmitted to Congress and unless Congress acts to disapprove, it will go into effect Nov. 1, 2014. The federal sentencing guidelines are advisory but carry substantial weight in determining federal sentences. The amendment reduces the guideline levels assigned to most drug-trafficking offenders based on the quantity of drugs involved in the offense. The commission determined that the guideline levels for drug quantity no longer needed to be so high. We estimate that our amendment will affect the sentences of almost 70% of federal drugtrafficking offenders and reduce their sentences by 11 months on average. These sentence reductions will correspond to a reduction in the federal prison population of approximately 6,500 inmates within five years and many more over time. The commission carefully weighed public safety concerns, and based on past experience, existing laws and guidelines and expert testimony it concluded that the amendment should not jeopardize public safety. Our amendment is modest in scope; only Congress can change statutory mandatory minimum penalties. But we believe it is an important start.

SERVICE ALERT ***PRODUCT SAFETY RECALL*** - Garmin

Garmin is voluntarily recalling certain nüvi devices that contain a specific battery that was manufactured by the battery supplier within a limited date code range. Garmin has identified potential overheating issues when certain batteries manufactured by the third-party battery supplier within a limited date code range are used in certain Garmin nüvi models with a specific printed circuit board (PCB) design. It appears that the interaction of these factors can, in rare circumstances, increase the possibility of overheating, which may lead to a fire hazard. Although there have been no injuries or significant property damage caused by this issue, Garmin is taking this action out of an abundance of caution. AFFECTED PRODUCTS The recalled devices include a small subset of the following nüvi model numbers:Determine your nüvi model and serial number by looking at the label on the back or bottom of your nüvi. You must provide this and other information to determine whether your nüvi is affected by this recall. To easily and quickly determine whether your nüvi is affected, go to www.garmin.com/nuvibatterypcbrecall Service Alert 1035 25 August 2010

Reclining Office Chair
by BackRxSpineCare 0 Comments favorite 18 Viewed Download 0 Times

zero gravity recliners gives your body a Zero Gravity Position where your legs are elevated above your heart, putting the back in a correct resting position where your spine makes an S curve and reduces all the pressure on your back. This position reduces the pressure on your spine by 15% as compared to lying horizontally. Since all our body parts are co-dependent, this zero gravity posture is beneficial to other areas as well: Lung capacity is expanded to ease breathing and boost oxygen levels in the blood, while circulation improves to minimize stress on the heart, which in turn leaves you with less muscle fatigue and a completely relaxed feeling overall. It's no wonder that Zero Gravity recliners are recommended by many physicians and health care professionals, and is the closest thing you'll find here on earth to the weightless conditions of outer space. It is often the postures in which we relax and not the activities we carry out, that cause or worsen back pain.

Algebra 2/Trigonometry - Regents Exams

The following procedures are to be followed for scoring student answer papers for the Regents Examination in Algebra 2/Trigonometry. More detailed information about scoring is provided in the publication Information Booklet for Scoring the Regents Examinations in Mathematics. Do not attempt to correct the student’s work by making insertions or changes of any kind. In scoring the open-ended questions, use check marks to indicate student errors. If the student’s responses for the multiple-choice questions are being hand scored prior to being scanned, the scorer must be careful not to make any stray marks on the answer sheet that might later interfere with the accuracy of the scanning. Unless otherwise specified, mathematically correct variations in the answers will be allowed. Units need not be given when the wording of the questions allows such omissions. Each student’s answer paper is to be scored by a minimum of three mathematics teachers. No one teacher is to score more than approximately one-third of the open-ended questions on a student’s paper. On the student’s separate answer sheet, for each question, record the number of credits earned and the teacher’s assigned rater/scorer letter. Schools are not permitted to rescore any of the open-ended questions on this exam after each question has been rated once, regardless of the final exam score. Schools are required to ensure that the raw scores have been added correctly and that the resulting scale score has been determined accurately. Raters should record the student’s scores for all questions and the total raw score on the student’s separate answer sheet. Then the student’s total raw score should be converted to a scale score by using the conversion chart that will be posted on the Department’s web site at: http://www.p12.nysed.gov/apda/ on Tuesday, June 19, 2012.

Algebra 2 and Trigonometry - Forest Hills High School

Algebra 2 and Trigonometry is a new text for a course in intermediate algebra and trigonometry that continues the approach that has made Amsco a leader in presenting mathematics in a modern, integrated manner. Over the last decade, this approach has undergone numerous changes and refinements to keep pace with ever-changing technology. This textbook is the final book in the three-part series in which Amsco parallels the integrated approach to the teaching of high school mathematics promoted by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics in its Principles and Standards for School Mathematics and mandated by the New York State Board of Regents in the Mathematics Core Curriculum. The text presents a range of materials and explanations that are guidelines for achieving a high level of excellence in their understanding of mathematics. In this book: ✔ The real numbers are reviewed and the understanding of operations with irrational numbers, particularly radicals, is expanded. ✔ The graphing calculator continues to be used as a routine tool in the study of mathematics. Its use enables the student to solve problems that require computation that more realistically reflects the real world. The use of the calculator replaces the need for tables in the study of trigonometry and logarithms. ✔ Coordinate geometry continues to be an integral part of the visualization of algebraic and trigonometric relationships. ✔ Functions represent a unifying concept throughout. The algebraic functions introduced in Integrated Algebra 1 are reviewed, and exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions are presented. ✔ Algebraic skills from Integrated Algebra 1 are maintained, strengthened, and expanded as both a holistic approach to mathematics and as a bridge to advanced studies. ✔ Statistics includes the use of the graphing calculator to reexamine range, quartiles, and interquartile range, to introduce measures of dispersion such as variance and standard deviation, and to determine the curve that best represents a set of bivariate data.
