In our July edition of Innovating for Good, we will discuss the falsehood of the general belief that refugee communities are isolated and dependent on humanitarian aid and why these claims are inherently inaccurate. We will highlight the positive economic impact refugees can have in host communities and why it is important to view livelihoods beyond the economic factor and to see social relationships as a key component for long lasting economic solutions.

The July edition of Innovating for Good monthly Google Hangout series hosted by UNHCR Innovation and +SocialGood will deepen the conversation started on UNHCR Innovation's blog post on the resilience of refugees: http://innovation.unhcr.org/15-ted-talks-on-refugee-resilience/

Panelists:
Naohiko Omata, OXHIP (http://www.oxhip.org)
Flavie Halais, Refugee Economics (http://www.refugee-economics.com)
Robert Hakiza, YARID (http://www.yarid.org)

This Hangout On Air is hosted by +SocialGood. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Hey everyone, I'm trying to convince our DevOps of switching to BigQuery (from MySQL) and I'm looking for a simple way to mirror a MySQL db in BigQuery.

Does anyone know of any tool/project that does this directly?

Thks!

BigQuery is not a transactional DB i.e. you cannot update data. It's designed for pure analytics of massive datasets. If that's OK for your use case, then a quick Google search throws up a few options - https://www.google.com/search?q=mysql+to+bigquery

While in Linux is possible to tunnel connections to a server using SSH, like locally use port number 8000 to connect to a server in port 80, http://www.revsys.com/writings/quicktips/ssh-tunnel.html,

How can I do the same for Compute Engine?

This is because I would like to connect securely to my server on WEB, while I set it up, test, deploy and buy a new SSL certificate for it.

Why do you want/ need to connect (securely) to the GCE SSH daemon?

New to Cloud. Hoping someone can help!
I signed up for the free trial and attempted to download approx. 3000 RAW photo files. I was on day three and file #1895 of the upload process when I accidently closed the window. I logged back in and only about 50 files are showing as uploaded, and that number slightly changes (to more and less) each time I log in. Wondering if I'm doing something wrong or if Google Cloud just can't handle my uploads. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

It's completely confusing how many python libraries Google has for python. More confusing are how incongruent the getting started docs are. Some use Google lib A, some Google lib B, some even Third Party lib C. Are they currently consolidating these? I'm kind of lost on which one is the 'new hotness'. Thanks.

Thanks Sharif. I understand there being some overlap in functionality between libraries.

I have a serious problem with a very big charge, 1000 $ with something called ManagedZone-month and I don't know what is that. My regular costs is around 200 $ per month. I am very unhappy and stressed with that costs and I need some help. I really don't recognize it. I am pretty sure it is a mistake.

Hi Lefteris,

Apologies for your stress. There has been a system error relating to Cloud DNS billing, that has resulted in erroneous charges appearing in the Cloud Console. We're currently working to resolve this issue, and expect to have the Cloud Console pages corrected by later today.

Regards,
Dan Stokeley

If anyone is looking for a way to upload Adwords data right into BigQuery, I wrote this that can help for large accounts (MCCs with over 200 accounts)

How reliable is the Blob Store usage amount?

For my App Engine app it is still way below the 5 GB quotum limit, so no worries yet. However, I'm only uploading new files, I have not deleted blobs the past month and still the amount fluctuates daily.

How is this possible? I'll happily pay for my usage, but I would like it to be fair as well.

I would say check chrome dev tools to see why the request might be failing, for any info or errors there. Or else file bug report with your project details.

Last week the guide to good practices for university #OA policies passed the milestone of 125,000 page views.
http://bit.ly/goodoa

The guide is based on the experience at Harvard and many other institutions around the world in drafting and implementing rights-retention OA policies. It has led to the adoption of OA policies in North America, Europe, Africa, and Asia, and has been endorsed by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), Australasian Open Access Support Group (AOASG), Coalition of Open Access Policy Institutions (COAPI), Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR), Electronic Information for Libraries (EIFL), Enabling Open Scholarship (EOS), Library and Information Association of South Africa (LIASA), Mediterranean Open Access Network (MedOANet), Oberlin Group, Open Access Directory (OAD), Open Access Policy Alignment Strategies for European Union Research (PASTEUR4OA), Open Access Scholarly Information Sourcebook (OASIS), Right to Research Coalition (R2RC), Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC), and SPARC Europe, and the UK Open Access Implementation Group (OAIG).

If your institution is considering an OA policy, or if you want it to, please have a look at the guide and spread the word.

Disclosure: I maintain the guide with +Stuart Shieber as part of the Harvard Open Access Project.
