This is in the same theme as the #BecauseIamAgirl movement that I posted earlier:

Whatever the origin, girls are the women of tomorrow and they all deserve equal access to education and career opportunities and #equalpayforequalwork.

Frankly I believe it is more important to educate woman then men.

When woman are educated birth rates Decline to close to the replacement rate. When that happens infant and childhood mortality rates also drop dramatically and populations stabilize. Oddly countries with the highest infant mortality rates has the fastest growing populations.

This also reduces pressure on resources.

The population prosperous, governments become more stable and economic development accelerates.

This doesn't mean young men don't also need education, just that if you fouces on girls/woman the men will natural be included.

Ugg! I was already a professional doing IT/Systems work when SSL was invented. I remember full-well the initial security issues with well-known key "salts" and with the government wanting a "back door" ... I had no idea that 20 years later those back-doors could still be a potential exploitation. :S

A new attack against websites illustrates the dangers of weakening cryptography -- and an astonishing number of sites are vulnerable.

No security is perfect, intentionally flaws (backdoors) are just stupid.

The original Google platform back end ran on a Sun Ultra 2 -- that's the one under the tallest monitor.

The original Google platform
The original Google platform (Backrub) at Stanford University was written in Java and Python and ran on the following hardware (shown in the pic above):

Sun Ultra II with dual 200 MHz processors and 256MB of RAM. This was the main machine for the original Backrub system.
2 x 300 MHz Dual Pentium II Servers (donated by Intel) with 512MB of RAM and 9 x 9GB hard drives between the two. The main search ran on these.
F50 IBM RS/6000 (donated by IBM) with 4 processors, 512MB of RAM and 8 x 9GB hard drives.
Two additional boxes included 3 x 9GB hard drives and 6 x 4GB hard drives respectively (the original storage for Backrub). These were attached to the Sun Ultra II.
IBM disk expansion box with another 8 x 9GB hard drives (donated by IBM).
Homemade disk box which contained 10 x 9GB SCSI hard drives.

Tagline
I live to sail; therefore, I work. In all things, music fuels my inspirations.
Introduction
A bean-pole of an energy-bomb at 6'6" and 180 lbs.
I am what I am. :-)

Between the high metabolism, excessive/extreme active life-style, & vegetarianism, the journey tends to focus on eating enough to maintain "status quo" w.r.t. body mass.

As a child I moaned a lot about how hard I had it. As an adult I am thankful for the stern upbringing that instilled in me a good work ethic and a sense of pride in the quality of my work. Above all else, I have learned from my formative years that nothing worth having comes without effort, and the REWARD is in knowing that your contribution is appreciated in some small way for having a positive impact on the lives of others--not from glory and fame.

I have the metabolism of a hummingbird.

Easily my favorite restaurant in / around Dearborn. The food is exceptionally tasty, artistically prepared, and reasonably priced for the high-quality ingredients and T.L.C. that goes into every dish. My all-time favorite appetizer is the Eggplant Caprese -- really the very best eggplant preparation I have ever had. The daily soup is always phenomenal (wild mushroom is my favorite) and the salads are absolutely delicious--especially the young spinach salad or the beet and feta salad (ask for it if you don't see it on the menu *smile*). As far as entrees, I am vegetarian and there are always several options for me--my favorites being the angel hair pasta, eggplant tower, or stuffed gnochi (usually an appetizer, but available as a larger portion as an entree).

These guys REALLY know how to make a picky guy like me DELIGHTED with all the over and above customer service...but most importantly, they are experienced and KNOW the ins and outs of my machine. As a result, TWICE NOW, they were able to remotely diagnose what was wrong and save me lots of money and messing around (vs. if I had tried to figure it out on my own). Basically my machine stopped heating in September, and I had placed an order for a new heating element and they contacted me to ask how I knew that was the bad part? Well, I didn't really know. They told me that most likely it was the thermo-fuse, and they were correct...saving me $54 !!! Then just last week, again the machine was not heating, but this time it wasn't the thermo-fuse. Apparently whatever blew the thermo-fuse in the first place (in September) also weakened one of the relays in the main control unit. I had thought it was the pressure-stat or a standalone relay, but Stefano's was able to tell me exactly how to EASILY rule those other things out. They saved me $98.95, that time. Amazing!!! I couldn't be happier!
