Cramming for exams, learning new languages, and remembering your to-do list can be tough — but a team of Australian researchers think they can help. They've developed a font called “Sans Forgetica” that uses the principles of cognitive science to help readers better remember their typed notes.
The typeface's unusual look is deliberately designed to be a challenge to read, according to Janneke Blijlevens, a professor of design at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) who worked on the font’s development.
“The principle behind this font is called ‘desirable difficulty’,” Blijlevens told NBC News MACH in an email. The half-finished letters that make up the Sans Forgetica alphabet force forces people to read more slowly and thoughtfully, she added. “This makes us more engaged with what we’re reading, which will increase memory retention.”
And it works, at least according to a preliminary study. Blijlevens teamed with Stephan Banham, an RMIT typography lecturer, to test how the font affected the memory capabilities of about 400 of the university's students. Those who read notes written in Sans Forgetica remembered, on average, about 7 percent more text than students who read notes in a more familiar font, like Arial.
The creation of Sans Forgetica builds on previous research looking into the relationship between hard-to-read fonts and human memory. Daniel Oppenheimer, a Carnegie Mellon psychologist, showed this in 2012 with a study that found students were able to study more effectively when reading a font that was bold or italicized. "Our fonts weren't as 'optimized for learning' as Sans Forgetica is," he said in an email to NBC News MACH, but even a slight typeface tweak led to a "significant gain in learning across a number of classrooms."

====================================================









software-defined perimeter (SDP)
Posted by: Margaret Rouse
Software-defined perimeter (SDP) is a security framework developed by the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) that controls access to resources based on identity. The framework is based on the U.S. Department of Defense's "need to know" model -- all endpoints attempting to access a given infrastructure must be authenticated and authorized prior to entrance. The SDP approach is sometimes said to create a "black cloud" because it obscures systems within the perimeter so that outsiders can't observe them.
The SDP uses an approach to cybersecurity that mitigates network-based attacks, protecting all classification levels of legacy IT assets and cloud services. The software-defined network works by hiding critical IT assets within an opaque black cloud that can't be accessed by outsiders, whether the assets are in the cloud, on premises, in a DMZ (demilitarized zone, sometimes known as a perimeter network), on a server in a data center or even in an application server.
An SDP functions as a broker between internal applications and users and only provides access to services if the correct criteria are met. This enables companies to determine which users have access to which applications. Segmenting applications via SDP enables organizations to secure sensitive information more easily.
The SDP creates an invisible screen to protect against malware, cyberattacks and other threats. This framework was designed to let enterprises provide secure access to network-based services, applications and systems.
SDPs are used to lower the chances of successful network-based attacks, including denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, man-in-the-middle attacks, server vulnerabilities and lateral movement attacks, such as SQL injection or cross-site scripting (XSS).
Uses of an SDP
SDPs are implemented for many different reasons, including:
·        SDPs support a variety of devices. The perimeter can authenticate laptops and PCs, as well as mobile devices and internet of things (IoT) devices, and SDPs ensure that connections can't be initiated from unauthorized or invalid devices.
·        SDPs restrict broad network access. Individual entities aren't granted broad access to network segments or subnets, so devices can only access the specific services and hosts that are permitted by policy. This minimizes the network attack surface, as well as prohibits port and vulnerability scanning by malicious users or malicious software.
·        SDPs support a broader risk-based policy. The SDP systems make access decisions based on numerous risk criteria, including threat intelligence, malware outbreaks, new software and more.
·        SDPs can be used to connect anything. Software-defined perimeter technology enables connectivity to only the IT resources required by employees without the cumbersome management requirements or mounting hardware costs.
·        SDPs enable control of services, applications and access. SDPs are capable of controlling which applications and devices are allowed to access specified services. This limits the attack surface and stops malicious users or malware from connecting to resources.
SDP framework
Software-defined perimeter technology enables a secure perimeter based on policies used to isolate services from unsecured networks. The goal of the CSA's SDP framework is to provide an on-demand, dynamically provisioned, air-gapped network -- a segmentation of network resources that mirrors a physically defined network perimeter but operates in software rather than via an appliance -- by authenticating users and devices before authorizing the user/device combination to securely connect to the isolated services. Unauthorized users and devices can't connect to the protected resources.

The Cloud Security Alliance explains software-defined
perimeters.
When the authentication is completed, the trusted devices are given a unique and temporary connection to the network infrastructure. The SDP framework lets companies streamline operations when it comes to user authentication and application security.
SDP deployment models
SDP deployment models can be characterized by the way they structure interactions among clients, servers and gateways. The primary approaches to implementing software-defined perimeter technology include: are the greatest challenges you've encountered Client-to-gateway deployment positions the servers behind an Accepting Host, which acts as a gateway between the protected servers and the clients -- Initiating Hosts in SDP terminology. The client-to-gateway SDP can be deployed inside a network to reduce such lateral movement attacks as operating system (OS) and application vulnerability exploits, man-in-the-middle attacks and server scanning. It can also be deployed directly on the internet in order to segregate protected servers from unauthorized users, as well as to mitigate attacks.
·        Client-to-server deployment is similar to the client-to-gateway deployment except that the server being protected by the SDP is the system that runs the Accepting Host software -- instead of the gateway. Deciding between the client-to-gateway and the client-to-server deployment is usually based on a number of factors, including analysis of load-balancing needs, the servers' elasticity -- how adaptable the cloud server is to changes in workloads -- and the number of servers an enterprise needs to protect behind the SDP.
·        Server-to-server deployments use servers that offer any kind of application programming interface (API) over the internet, can be protected from all unauthorized hosts on the network -- including a Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) service, a remote procedure call (RPC), a representational state transfer (REST) service or similar -- and use it to communicate between the Accepting Host and the Initiating Host.
·        Client-to-server-to-client implementations depend on a peer-to-peer (P2P) relationship between the clients that can be used for applications such as chat, video conferencing, IP telephony and similar applications. In this deployment, the SDP obfuscates the IP addresses of the connecting clients, with the server acting as the intermediary for both clients.

Netiquette IQ Blog Of 11/15/2018 - The Top 10 Animal Rights Issues

The Top 10 Animal Rights Issues
The Main Threat to Wild and Domestic Animals Worldwide Is Human Overpopulation
Bottom of Form
Updated October 09, 2018
Here is a list of the top animal rights issues being discussed, based on the effects on animals and the numbers of animals and people involved. It's all due to the human population, which is over 7.5 billion people and growing.
Maremagnum/The Image Bank/Getty Images
Human overpopulation is the No. 1 threat to wild and domestic animals worldwide. Whatever humans do to use, abuse, kill, or displace animals is magnified by the number of people on the planet, which is over 7.5 billion as of October 2018. While Third World countries are experiencing the most population growth, those of us in the First World, who consume the most, have the biggest impact.
Every animal use and abuse stems from their treatment as human property, to be used for human purposes no matter how trivial. From a practical standpoint, changing the property status of animals would benefit pets and their human guardians. We could start by referring to domestic animals living with us as "companion animals" instead of pets and referring to people caring for them as "guardians," not owners. Most dog and cat guardians refer to them as their "fur children" and consider them members of the family.
With millions of cats and dogs killed in shelters every year, nearly all activists agree that people should spay and neuter their pets. Some activists oppose keeping pets, but no one wants to take your dog from you. A very small number of activists oppose sterilization because they believe it infringes on the animal's right to be free from human intervention. 
Veganism is more than a diet. It's about abstaining from all animal use and animal products, whether it's meat, milk, leather, wool, or silk. People who follow a plant-based diet may be doing it for ethical or nutritional reasons, while those who adopt a vegan diet for nutritional reasons might not abstain from buying or wearing leather or even fur. They aren't vegan because they love animals, but because they want to live a healthier lifestyle.  
Although factory farming involves many cruel practices, it isn't just those practices that are objectionable. The use of animals and animal products for food is antithetical to animal rights.
Fish and Fishing
Many people have a hard time understanding objections to eating fish, but fish do feel pain. Also, overfishing threatens the survival of those that make up the marine ecosystem, in addition to the species targeted by commercial fisheries. So fish farms are not the answer.
While some animal protection organizations promote "humane" meat, others believe that the term is an oxymoron. Each side argues that its position helps animals.
Some animal advocates argue that the results of experiments on animals are invalid when applied to humans, but regardless of whether the data helps humans, performing experiments on them violates their rights. Don't expect the ​Animal Welfare Act to protect them; many species used in experiments are not covered under the AWA

Animal rights activists oppose any killing of an animal for meat, whether it's done in a slaughterhouse or a forest, but there are arguments specifically against hunting that are important to ​understand.
Fur

Whether captured in a trap, raised on a fur farm, or bludgeoned to death on an ice floe, animals suffer and die for fur. Although fur coats have fallen out of fashion, fur trim is still widely available and sometimes isn't even labeled as real fur.
Greyhound racing, horse racing, rodeos, marine mammals on display, and animals used in movies and television are treated as chattel. Where there is exploitation for money, the potential for abuse is a constant problem. To achieve the behavior necessary to appear in movies or commercials, animals are often mistreated into submission. In other instances, the fact that they are not allowed to follow their natural behavior can result in catastrophic consequences, as was the case with Travis the chimp.

Netiquette IQ Definition - Cloud Automation

====================================================











 Cloud Automation
Cloud automation is a broad term that refers to the processes and tools an organization uses to reduce the manual efforts associated with provisioning and managing cloud computing workloads. When implemented properly, cloud automation decreases human error and can save an information technology team time and money.
One of the most common use cases for cloud automation is to deploy Infrastructure as Code (IAC). This approach to deploying applications allows developers or operations teams to automatically manage and provision the technology stack for an app through software, rather than using a manual process to configure discrete hardware devices and operating systems. When the infrastructure is composable, it also negates the need for IT administrators to be concerned with the physical location of infrastructure components for distributed apps.
In addition to helping with deployments, cloud automation can be used to help administrators manage workload. For example, an automated tool might be configured to monitor a deployed workload's performance and scale resources up and down as needed.
To implement cloud automation, an information technology (IT) team needs to use orchestration and automation tools that run on top of their virtualized environment. Orchestration involves codifying the various steps and processes involved workload deployment and management, while automation involves invoking those steps without human intervention.

Examples of common cloud automation tools include Puppet Enterprise from Puppet Labs, Chef Automate from Chef, the Automic platform from CA Technologies and the Pure-play Application Orchestration platform from Cloudify. Automation services from public cloud providers include Microsoft Azure Automation and the Automation feature in AWS' Elastic Compute Cloud Systems Manager.
