IoT and Data Centers | @CloudExpo #BigData #IoT #DataCenter #Storage

The future of data centers looks very exciting. Data Centers are turning out to be increasingly important in today’s connected world as we can store and process a lot of consumer and commercial data. Data centers seem to be either becoming huge or very small. In general, marketing cloud storage and cloud computing services are likely to increase the profit … Continue reading

Software Supply Chain Report | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #ContinuousTesting

Analysis of 25,000 applications reveals 6.8% of packages/components used included known defects. Organizations standardizing on components between 2 – 3 years of age can decrease defect rates substantially. Open source and third-party packages/components live at the heart of high velocity software development organizations. Today, an average of 106 packages/components comprise 80 – 90% of a modern application, yet few organizations … Continue reading

[slides] The Lifecycle of #Microservices | @CloudExpo #NoCode #LowCode

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number … Continue reading

Societies, Vol. 6, Pages 30: A Cross-Cultural Adaptation of the ICECAP-O: Test–Retest Reliability and Item Relevance in Swedish 70-Year-Olds

By Helena Hörder Background: While there is a plethora of Quality of Life (QoL) measures, the Investigating Choice Experiments for the Preferences of Older People—CAPability index (ICECAP-O) is one of the few that taps into the concept of capability, i.e., opportunities to ‘do’ and ‘be’ the things that one deems important in life. We aimed to examine test–retest reliability of … Continue reading

IJMS, Vol. 17, Pages 1667: Internet-Supported Physical Exercise Training for Persons with Multiple Sclerosis—A Randomised, Controlled Study

By Alexander Tallner Physical exercise is effective in improving functional outcomes in persons with multiple sclerosis (pwMS). We evaluated the feasibility and effectiveness of internet-based exercise training (e-training) for pwMS on health-related quality of life (HrQoL). Secondary outcomes were muscle strength, aerobic capacity, lung function, physical activity, and fatigue. This is a randomised, controlled trial with a wait-list control group. … Continue reading

Atmosphere, Vol. 7, Pages 124: Sensitivity of the Reaction Mechanism of the Ozone Depletion Events during the Arctic Spring on the Initial Atmospheric Composition of the Troposphere

By Le Cao Ozone depletion events (ODEs) during the Arctic spring have been investigated since the 1980s. It was found that the depletion of ozone is highly associated with the release of halogens, especially bromine containing compounds. These compounds originate from various substrates such as the ice/snow-covered surfaces in Arctic. In the present study, the dependence of the mixing ratios … Continue reading

Metabolites, Vol. 6, Pages 31: Metabolomics and Cheminformatics Analysis of Antifungal Function of Plant Metabolites

By Miroslava Cuperlovic-Culf Fusarium head blight (FHB), primarily caused by Fusarium graminearum, is a devastating disease of wheat. Partial resistance to FHB of several wheat cultivars includes specific metabolic responses to inoculation. Previously published studies have determined major metabolic changes induced by pathogens in resistant and susceptible plants. Functionality of the majority of these metabolites in resistance remains unknown. In … Continue reading

Brain Sciences, Vol. 6, Pages 44: The Cluster Variation Method: A Primer for Neuroscientists

By Alianna Maren Effective Brain–Computer Interfaces (BCIs) require that the time-varying activation patterns of 2-D neural ensembles be modelled. The cluster variation method (CVM) offers a means for the characterization of 2-D local pattern distributions. This paper provides neuroscientists and BCI researchers with a CVM tutorial that will help them to understand how the CVM statistical thermodynamics formulation can model … Continue reading

ncRNA, Vol. 2, Pages 11: Regulation of the U3-, U8-, and U13snoRNA Expression by the DEAD Box Proteins Ddx5/Ddx17 with Consequences for Cell Proliferation and Survival

By Hala Ismael Small nucleolar RNAs (snoRNAs) in cooperation with their associated proteins (snoRNPs) contribute to the maturation of ribosomal RNA, transfer RNA, and other transcripts. Most snoRNPs mediate chemical base modifications of their RNA substrates, and a few others, like those formed by the C/D snoRNAs U3, U8, and U13, are needed for the structural organization and maturation of … Continue reading

Sports, Vol. 4, Pages 47: Muscle- and Mode-Specific Responses of the Forearm Flexors to Fatiguing, Concentric Muscle Actions

By Ethan Hill Background: Electromyographic (EMG) and mechanomyographic (MMG) studies of fatigue have generally utilized maximal isometric or dynamic muscle actions, but sport- and work-related activities involve predominately submaximal movements. Therefore, the purpose of the present investigation was to examine the torque, EMG, and MMG responses as a result of submaximal, concentric, isokinetic, forearm flexion muscle actions. Methods: Twelve men … Continue reading

Molecules, Vol. 21, Pages 1306: Antidermatophytic Action of Resorcinol Derivatives: Ultrastructural Evidence of the Activity of Phenylethyl Resorcinol against Microsporum gypseum

By Carlo Romagnoli In this work, we evaluated the antidermatophytic activities of three resorcinol derivatives that have a history of use in dermo-cosmetic applications to discover molecules with multiple dermatological activities (i.e., multi-target drugs), thereby reducing the cost and time necessary for new drug development. The antidermatophytic activities of the three skin lighteners were evaluated relative to the known antifungal … Continue reading
