Перевод статьи подготовлен в преддверии старта курса «Нереляционные базы данных». Основные моменты: Крайне важно разработать схему несмотря на то, что в MongoDB она необязательна.

Аналогично, индексы должны соответствовать вашей схеме и шаблонами доступа. Избегайте использования больших объектов и больших массивов.

Будьте осторожны с настройками MongoDB, особенно если речь идет о безопасности и надежности.

Вернуть пропавший скутер, или история одного IoT мониторинга
Вернуть пропавший скутер, или история одного IoT мониторинга Вернуть пропавший скутер, или история одного IoT мониторинга

Год назад мы запустили пилотную версию промо проекта по децентрализованному прокату электроскутеров.

Изначально проект назывался Road-To-Barcelona, позже стал Road-To-Berlin (отсюда встречающиеся на скриншотах R2B), а в итоге и вовсе был назван xRide.

Основная идея проекта была в следующем: вместо того чтобы иметь централизованный сервис проката автомобилей или скутеров (речь пойдет о скутерах aka электро-мотоциклах, а не kickscooter/самокатах) мы хотели сделать платформу для децентрализованной аренды. О сложностях с которыми мы столкнулись уже писали ранее.

Затем вытащить их из USB-боксов и поставить в NAS, который затем использовать с минимальными нагрузками под бекапы. Разница на круг получалась хорошей – 16 тыс. Заказ был сделан. На следующий день курьер привез четыре коробки с голографическими стикерами. И с этого момента все пошло не по плану.

Но, как оказалось, Linux-навыки, и правда, помогают мне быстрее справляться с делами. Всё началось с того, что мне посоветовали «взглянуть на Linux». Я тогда подумала, что делать мне, всё равно, нечего, да ещё и сентябрьский выпуск #IBelieveinDoing оказался как раз о Linux.

Российские банки предлагают ввести функцию оспаривания транзакций в Системе быстрых платежей (СБП), запущенной Центробанком в 2019 году.

Национальная система платежных карт (НСПК), которая является оператором СБП, поддержала инициативу и пообещала сделать возможным оспаривание платежей в ближайшее время.

Представитель ЦБ заявил, что с запуска СБП было совершено около 145 тысяч платежей на сумму свыше 800 млн рублей.

Пока не все кредитные организации могут предоставить эту возможность.

В НСПК отметили, что планируется в ближайшее время начать пилотирование системы «Диспут Плюс» в СБП.

Почему два млн подписчиков все еще получают DVD от Netflix по почте Почему два млн подписчиков все еще получают DVD от Netflix по почте

Тем не менее, у первой услуги есть целых два млн поклонников, и в ближайшие годы компания не планирует от нее отказываться.

Диск был выслан в Техас из одного из 42 национальных распределительных центров по всем США, который обслуживал 6,3 млн подписчиков сервиса.

Из всех показателей, свидетельствующих о быстром росте Netflix, этот, пожалуй, удивляет больше всего: по-прежнему более двух млн подписчиков из США получают диски от Netflix по почте.

В начале следующего года компания AMD должна выпустить мобильные процессоры Ryzen 5000U на архитектуре Zen 3.

Согласно ряду данных, эта линейка на самом деле будет состоять из двух: процессоров Cezanne и процессоров Renoir Refresh или же Lucienne.

Первые будут теми самыми новыми APU с архитектурой Zen 3, а вот вторые не зря называются Renoir Refresh.

Сложнее поверить в другую теорию, согласно которой, Cezanne и Renoir Refresh просто будут существовать бок о бок в рамках одной линейки.

К примеру, Ryzen 7 5800U будет относиться к семейству Cezanne, а Ryzen 7 5700U — к Renoir Refresh.

Efficient Integer Overflow Checking in LLVM
Efficient Integer Overflow Checking in LLVM

This function can be partially vectorized, but the version with integer overflow checks doesn’t get vectorized at all.

In other words, most of the slowdown comes from integer overflow checks interfering with loop optimizations.

First, the good news: all of the overflow checks in these functions are optimized away by LLVM:int foo2(int x, int y) { return (short)x + (short)y; } int foo3(int x, int y) { return (long)x + (long)y; } int foo4(int x, int y) { return (x >> 1) + (y >> 1); } int32_t foo5(int32_t x, int32_t y) { const int32_t mask = ~(3U << 30); return (x & mask) + (y & mask); } int32_t foo6(int32_t x, int32_t y) { const int32_t mask = 3U << 30; return (x | mask) + (y | mask); } int32_…

How expensive is integer-overflow trapping in C++?
How expensive is integer-overflow trapping in C++? How expensive is integer-overflow trapping in C++?

Integers in programming languages have a valid range but arithmetic operations can result in values that exceed such ranges.

For example, adding two large integers can result in an integer that cannot be represented in the integer type.

In a programming languages like Swift, an overflow will result in the program aborting its execution.

Most other programming languages are not so cautious.

What is a lot more significant is that enabling overflow trapping in GCC incurs an order of magnitude slowdown.

Physicists argue that black holes from the Big Bang could be the dark matter Physicists argue that black holes from the Big Bang could be the dark matter

Their very blackness makes it hard to estimate how many black holes inhabit the cosmos and how big they are.

But perhaps black holes were also born during the Big Bang itself.

A hidden population of such “primordial” black holes could conceivably constitute dark matter, a hidden thumb on the cosmic scale.

Now, however, following a flurry of recent papers, the primordial black hole idea appears to have come back to life.

Dark matter remains dark.

The first-ever image of a black hole is now a movie The first-ever image of a black hole is now a movie

The historic first image of a black hole unveiled last year has now been turned into a movie.

Black hole pictured for first time — in spectacular detailThe images show a lopsided blob of light swirling around the supermassive black hole at the centre of the galaxy M87.

It portrayed M87*, the supermassive black hole at the centre of the M87 galaxy, some 17 megaparsecs (55 million light years) away.

This was expected, owing to a combination of effects in the complex dynamics around a black hole.

MIT: The wobbling shadow of the M87* black hole MIT: The wobbling shadow of the M87* black hole

In 2019, the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) Collaboration, including a team of MIT Haystack Observatory scientists, delivered the first image of a black hole, revealing M87* — the supermassive object in the center of the M87 galaxy.

The analysis reveals the behavior of the black hole image across multiple years, indicating persistence of the crescent-like shadow feature, but also variation of its orientation — the crescent appears to be wobbling.

But the EHT team was able to use statistical modeling to look at changes in the appearance of M87* over time.

The black hole’s shadow diameter has remained consistent with the prediction of Einstein’s theory of general relativity for a black hole of…

On Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin offered UN staff free doses of the country’s COVID-19 vaccine, Sputnik V, which has not completed clinical trials for efficacy and has not been thoroughly vetted for safety.

Putin made headlines last month after announcing that Russia has granted regulatory approval for the (limited) use of Sputnik V, the first country in the world to do so.

The results indicate that Sputnik V spurred potentially protective immune responses and did not cause any severe side effects.

Sputnik V has now moved into larger trials with tens of thousands of people.

The lack of data does not seem to trouble Putin, who was happy to distribute the vaccine to UN staff.

The odds of NASA sending humans back to the Moon by 2024 are long—not zero, but pretty close.

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said this week that funding the Artemis Moon Program before the end of this year would be workable.

In deliberations earlier this year, the US House provided only $600 million, or less than one-fifth of the budget NASA said its needs for the coming year.

So says the SenateWednesday provided the first opportunity to assess, publicly at least, whether the Senate will be more supportive of the Artemis Program and its aggressive 2024 goal.

With this information, NASA plans to "down-select" from this initial group of three landing teams in February.

Broadly speaking, it means that if you use an Internet service to say something obscene or unlawful, then you, not the Internet service, are the one responsible for having said the thing, and the Internet service has legal immunity from whatever you said.

The proposed new bill legislation also adds several explicit carve-outs to the law.

T-Mobile US CEO Mike Sievert yesterday fired back at AT&T and Verizon, saying the carriers' complaints about T-Mobile obtaining more spectrum licenses show that they are afraid of competition.

As we wrote Monday, Verizon and AT&T have urged the Federal Communications Commission to impose limits on T-Mobile's ability to obtain more spectrum licenses.

Verizon told the FCC that "T-Mobile already holds licenses for 311MHz of low- and mid-band spectrum nationwide," more than AT&T and Verizon combined and well above the FCC's 250MHz "spectrum screen."

And importantly, the "spectrum screen" pre-dates, and therefore ignores, certain 5G spectrum where Verizon already dominates.

Over the next 15 years, cheaper and more powerful batteries enabled Tesla to build roomier cars with longer ranges at lower prices.

In recent years, Tesla has had a large team of engineers re-thinking every aspect of Tesla's batteries, from the chemistry inside the cells to the way the batteries are incorporated into vehicles.

As a result, Elon Musk said, Tesla will be able to realize a longstanding dream: a truly affordable electric car.

Tesla has ambitious plans for its new battery cells.

Silicon Valley has long been criticized for operating under an erroneous binary: You must choose between profit or positive social impact.

“So if you just follow the youth, they want to be on a mission that is good for our planet and good for our society,” Rae explained.

Venture capital investment in the US topped $130 billion in 2019.

Maria Ressa Says Disinformation Is More Insidious Than We Think Maria Ressa Says Disinformation Is More Insidious Than We Think

Maria Ressa, CEO and executive editor of Rappler, an investigative news website in the Philippines, says we talk about disinformation all wrong.

The typical framing suggests that the people behind disinformation want us to believe something that isn’t true.

A higher aim of those efforts is to shake our sense of what’s true and what’s not in the first place.

Ressa has been the target of Facebook disinformation networks for years based on her journalism.

After years of little action, Ressa says Facebook’s recent work to take down disinformation networks—rather than playing “whack-a-mole” with individual false items—is encouraging.

As WIRED has reported, Nextdoor has had a racism problem, and set out to address it, beginning in 2015.

They’re still too clumsy and stupid to work on their own, so they’re more likely to automate parts of your job.

But I’ll be honest, I did not see this one coming: A robot named Curly just mastered the sport of curling, beating two Korean national teams.

At the end of the round, the team with a stone closest to the center of the target gets a point.

If that team has extra stones closer to the center than the opposing team, those tally additional points.

The strategy comes from making sure your opponent doesn’t instead get their stones closest to the center of the house.

Just as Hollywood has had to pause production on some of its most anticipated film projects, television has run into production dilemmas, too.

Which means that, like so many other things in 2020, the fall TV schedule won’t be as jam-packed with new shows as it has in previous years.

But that doesn’t mean that there won’t be any new shows—nor does it mean that there isn’t still plenty to watch.

Whether you’re looking for something brand-new, or just new-to-you, here are 15 of the TV shows everyone should be watching this fall.

But why does the ball slow down?

There is the downward pulling gravitational force and the backwards pushing air drag force due to the collision between the ball and the molecules in the air.

But what about the air drag?

The air drag force makes the ball slow down—but the air drag force changes with the velocity of ball.

During this interval, we can assume that the air drag force is constant—it's at least approximately constant.

Data from media analytics firm Ampere Analysis suggests that on average, a Netflix Original gets just two seasons before being canceled.

The second data point is Completers, subscribers who finish an entire season.

All of that data helps Netflix paint a picture about whether to renew your favorite series.

Netflix also employs a cost-plus model, which means that it pays a show’s entire production costs, plus a 30 percent premium.

“A lot of people want to buy a Tesla, but they simply don’t have enough money.” Elon Musk, Tesla CEOMusk said the cost of Teslas—the Model 3, Tesla’s cheapest car, starts at $38,000 before subsidies—limits their appeal.

Baglino and Musk also claimed a 56 percent reduction in the dollars per kilowatt hour compared with Tesla’s existing cells, but did not name a dollar figure.

Altogether, that makes its volume about six times greater than that of the Panasonic 2170 cells used in newer model Teslas.

If you're asking that question, you probably don't need Apple's or Garmin's advanced capabilities and are best off with a basic Fitbit.

Officially, there's no word on when the iPhone 12 (all four of them) will launch.

So, what's the most probable date for the iPhone 12?

In August, Prosser said the iPhone 12 event is happening sometime between Oct. 12–18, though he also said that iPhone 12 Pro devices will be available for pre-order and shipping in November.

Apple is rumored to launch four new iPhones at the event: the "regular" 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch iPhone 12 models, and the 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro variants.

In addition to writing the famous Sherlock Holmes stories, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was a fervent believer in fairies, seances, and real-life magic.

Yet even with his prodigious imagination, Doyle could not have dreamed up a character like Enola Holmes.

The dual mysteries at the heart of Enola Holmes are compelling despite creating more than a few plot holes that, while small, poke at the story’s credibility as a classic whodunnit.

Enola Holmes could have done more to subvert his antiquarian attitudes.

The Enola Holmes Mysteries are a six-book series and Enola Holmes on Netflix only adapted the first of them.

The proposal would make it riskier for sites to remove offensive content and would remove sites’ immunity for hosting material related to terrorism, child sex abuse, or cyber-stalking.

It would also remove some protections for sites that don’t sufficiently explain their content moderation policies.

Many of these decisions would still be covered under the First Amendment, but removing Section 230 protections could drag out legal battles over allegations of social media censorship.

Conversely, if sites are sued for leaving illegal content online, they won’t be protected if they acted as “bad Samaritans” who purposely promoted or solicited illegal material.

Facebook will reject ads from Donald Trump and Joe Biden claiming victory before the winner of the US election is declared.

Either presidential candidate could have started claiming victory at 12:01AM PT on November 4th.

“We will be rejecting political ads that claim victory before the results of the 2020 election have been declared,” the tech giant said in a statement to Fast Company.

In early September, Zuckerberg announced that the company would stop accepting new political ads the week before the election.

As part of the expanded policy, Facebook said it will also label posts that seek to spread doubt about the legitimacy of the election as well as content from political campaigns claim…

Buying Spider-Man Remastered on the PS5 is going to be needlessly confusing Buying Spider-Man Remastered on the PS5 is going to be needlessly confusing

Sony has confirmed to Kotaku that Spider-Man Remastered — the updated PS5 version — won’t be sold as a standalone title or offered as a free upgrade for existing Spider-Man owners.

Instead, the only way to buy it will be as part of the $69.99 Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition bundle, which couples the PS5 version of the upcoming spinoff with Spider-Man Remastered.

Buy Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales on the PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5 (which includes a free upgrade to Miles Morales on the PS5) for $49.99.

You’ll then have the option to pay the extra $20 to upgrade to the Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition to get Spider-Man Remastered — but you’ll still have to…

Pour one out for the iconic Sega building in Akihabara Pour one out for the iconic Sega building in Akihabara

Sega Akihabara 2nd, the multifloor haven filled with arcade cabinets and gacha games, closed in late August after being open for 17 years.

If you’ve played one of the great Yakuza games, you’ve probably spent time playing Sega arcade games in a virtual version of Sega’s Akihabara 2nd, or something reminiscent of it.

Now, this building’s closing isn’t a sign that Sega arcade cabinets and the like will disappear from Japan — just from this building.

The intersection in front of Sega Akihabara 2nd was filled with YouTubers capturing b-roll for what I’m sure were delectable video compilations.

Hopefully what ends up taking this Sega building’s place will look equally cool.

(Reuters) — Facebook, YouTube and Twitter have agreed on first steps to curb harmful content online, big advertisers announced on Wednesday, following boycotts of social media platforms they had accused of tolerating hate speech.

Under the deal, announced by the World Federation of Advertisers, common definitions would be adopted for forms of harmful content such as hate speech and bullying, and platforms would adopt harmonized reporting standards.

Three months ago, major advertisers boycotted Facebook in the wake of anti-racism demonstrations that followed the death of George Floyd, an American Black man, in police custody in Minneapolis.

The video game industry and gamers faced more than 10 billion cyberattacks during the past couple of years, with the attacks spiking in the pandemic, according to a new report by internet delivery and cloud services company Akamai.

Each successful login indicates a gamer’s account has been compromised.

“There’s a huge disconnect there, even though a lot of players couldn’t recover a compromised account,” Ragan said.

The report posits that even though avid gamers might not recognize the value in the data associated with their accounts, criminals most certainly do.

For the most part, they have disposable income, and they tend to spend it on their gaming accounts and gaming experiences.

Research by cybersecurity company BlueVoyant found that organisations have an average of 1,013 vendors in their supplier ecosystem – and that 82% of organisations have suffered a data breach in the past 12 months due to cybersecurity weakness in the supply chain.

But, despite the risk posed by security vulnerabilities in the supply chain, a third of organisations have little to no indication if hackers had got into their supply chain, meaning that they may not find out that they've been the victim of an incident until it's too late.

Moderators spend more than four hours a day reviewing graphic video content because YouTube is "chronically understaffed," the suit says.

In May, Facebook agreed to pay $52 million to content moderators as part of a settlement.

YouTube also didn't do enough to provide support for these employees after they started their job, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit alleges that YouTube is strictly liable for the harms caused to content moderators because the work is "abnormally dangerous."

If content moderators choose to leave their jobs, they'll lose their pay and health benefits.

iPadOS 14 – 50+ Top Features and Changes! [Video]
iPadOS 14 – 50+ Top Features and Changes! [Video] iPadOS 14 – 50+ Top Features and Changes! [Video]

Additional Apple Pencil features, improved menus, and general bug fixes are all present here on this update.

While widgets can be placed on the home screen and app pages in iOS 14, widgets in iPadOS 14 are unfortunately limited to the Today View section for now.

The search menu UI is much more compact and similar to MacOS’ search menu in design.

This is so much better for not being completely interrupted during a gaming session, or when drawing with the Apple Pencil.

What are your favorite iPadOS 14 features?

Feature Request: Allow our Apple Watch to unlock our iPhone and iPad Feature Request: Allow our Apple Watch to unlock our iPhone and iPad

Face ID is normally a completely seamless way to unlock an iPhone and iPad: just swipe up and it unlocks automatically.

So we’d like to see Apple allow an unlocked Apple Watch to automatically unlock an iPhone and iPad …Apple of course already allows the Apple Watch to unlock a Mac: just wake a Mac from sleep and, if you are wearing an unlocked Apple Watch using the same Apple ID, it will unlock the Mac.

It also allows an iPhone to unlock an Apple Watch.

When I put my watch on in the morning, instead of typing in the PIN – which is a little fiddly – I just unlock my iPhone which then automatically unlocks my watch.

It’s normally a safe thing to do because it only unlocks devices that use th…

Изначально вся эта криптореволюция вокруг криптовалют поднималась для того, чтобы отказаться от архаичного наследия - государственной регуляции, банков и прочих “нахлебников монетарной системы”. Вчера Kraken (это одна из крупнейших криптовалютных бирж) обьявили о том, что откроют собственный банк в Вайоминге. Казалось бы шаг назад, на самом деле не совсем - банк открывается в новой “регуляторной песочнице” по упрощенной методике, и нужен для того, чтобы не зависеть от чужих банков. Т.е. по сути это не банк, а гейт между криптовалютами и фиатными деньгами. https://www.theblockcrypto.com/post/77804/kraken-crypto-bank-launch-wyoming

TikTok’s Chinese owner said it is seeking approval from Beijing for a White House-endorsed plan to turn the short-video app into a U.S.-based company, officially placing the fate of the year’s hottest social-media asset in the hands of Chinese authorities.

ByteDance Ltd. said Thursday that it had submitted its plan, which involves partnering with Oracle Corp. and Walmart Inc., to commerce authorities in the Chinese capital under recently expanded export restrictions and is awaiting a decision.

WASHINGTON—TikTok Inc. asked a federal judge to stop the Trump administration from imposing a ban on the popular video-sharing app over national-security concerns.

In a court-filed injunction request Wednesday, TikTok lawyers told a D.C. district court judge that the U.S. government’s proposed ban violates constitutional provisions for free speech and due process.

Judge Carl J. Nichols set a hearing for Thursday morning to go over the request.

TikTok sued President Trump and the Commerce Department, which is in charge of implementing the ban, on Friday, its second legal challenge to the proposed measure.

Wednesday’s measure built on that challenge, explicitly asking the judge to halt the ba…

WeWork is selling control of its China business, the latest sign that the company is abandoning its former rapid growth approach and looking to reduce risk.

A group led by investment firm Trustbridge Partners paid $200 million to increase its stake in WeWork China, which leases and effectively sublets office space in the country, the companies said.

Parts of the deal resemble a traditional franchise model, and WeWork is giving up operating control.

But WeWork will retain a minority stake and a board seat in the China business, a person familiar with the arrangement said.

Franchise-type arrangements like the new one in China brings WeWork a smaller share of a location’s revenues, but it also…

Under the proposed changes, technology platforms that purposely facilitate “harmful criminal activity” would not receive the protections, the department said.

Platforms that allow “known criminal content” to stay up once they know it exists would lose the protections for that content.

Walmart’s planned investment in TikTok is being called “transformative.” Another analyst predicted the deal could “redefine retail” across the industry.

“It is a bigger-picture opportunity,” said Oliver Chen, a retail analyst at Cowen.

As in the early days of many tech investments by large corporations, the details of how Walmart will use TikTok are fuzzy.

But one thing is clear: Walmart now has something that its rival Amazon does not.

It can engage with consumers not just when they are buying something on the retailer’s website, but while they are creating and consuming viral videos.

The owner, who does not want to be identified, was "mortified" to find out their old TV was causing the problem, according to Openreach.

"It turned out that at 7am every morning the occupant would switch on their old TV which would, in-turn, knock out broadband for the entire village."

The TV was found to be emitting a single high-level impulse noise (SHINE), which causes electrical interference in other devices.
