New Qubole Pipelines Service targets streaming data

Qubole unveiled a new offering designed to help organizations develop streaming data pipelines.

The data lake vendor, founded in 2011 and based in Santa Clara, Calif., offers a cloud-based open data lake platform designed to foster analytics and machine learning. Its latest offering, Qubole Pipelines Service, was released Aug. 18 and adds to the capabilities of its open data lake by enabling organizations to manage streaming data from varied sources on a single platform so they can quickly turn that real-time data into action.

With augmented intelligence and machine learning along with the internet of things creating more and more streaming data, organizations will increasingly need to turn to platforms that can quickly extract, load and transform that data so they can subsequently use it to make the data-driven decisions that will drive their business.

Qubole Pipelines Service — which is now in open beta testing after being in dark beta testing until Aug. 18 — addresses the specific need created by ever-increasing amounts of data coming in at ever-faster rates from an ever-rising number of sources. According to Qubole co-founder and CTO Joydeep Sen Sarma, it both makes streaming data more accessible and lowers the complexity of moving

The hub and I broke down and bought cell telephones when he took a job in one other state and I stayed behind to sell the house – it appeared to make more sense than getting another land line. We have had them ever since. On the other hand, there was a time (before I met the hub) once I didn’t have a cellphone in any respect. I didn’t miss it, however my household wasn’t pleased. A lot of the Android code was released by Google below the Apache license which is a free software program license. The performance of the Android devices is extended by the massive variety of apps which are developed by a neighborhood of developers maintained by Android.

Though cell telephones are actually ubiquitous in American houses, the extent of engagement with the telephones does differ widely between generations. As proven in the above desk, our Could 2010 survey found that whereas roughly the same proportion of adults within the Millennial generation and Era X personal cell telephones, Millennials …

New Findings on Universe’s Dark Matter Confound Scientists

Dark matter, mysterious invisible stuff that makes up most of the mass of galaxies including our own Milky Way, is confounding scientists again, with new observations of distant galaxies conflicting with the current understanding of its nature.

Research published this week revealed an unexpected discrepancy between observations of dark matter concentrations in three massive clusters of galaxies encompassing trillions of stars and theoretical computer simulations of how dark matter should be distributed.

“Either there is a missing ingredient in the simulations or we have made a fundamental incorrect assumption about the nature of dark matter,” Yale University astrophysicist Priyamvada Natarajan, a co-author of the study published in the journal Science, said on Friday.

Dark matter is the invisible glue that holds stars together inside a galaxy. It also creates an invisible scaffold that enables galaxies to form clusters. But it has very peculiar properties. It does not emit, absorb or reflect light and does not interact with any known particles.

The bulk of the matter in the universe, about 96 percent, is thought to be dark matter, with ordinary matter – the visible stuff that makes up stars, planets and people – a mere 4 percent.

Dark matter’s presence is

As schools reopen, officials reflect on first months of coronavirus device lending programs

School districts across the United States had varying experiences with trying to get devices to every child at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Every teacher and administrator was faced with an unprecedented problem when schools across the country were shut for the year in March to help states deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. Most schools were given barely a few weeks to suddenly prepare students, parents, and themselves for remote learning, which is only possible with some kind of device. While hundreds of districts were lucky enough to already have 1:1 device lending programs in place for all their students, others scrambled to order and deliver millions of iPads and Chromebooks just in time for the end of spring break.

“A lot of districts are building the plane while they’re flying it. Some districts were better prepared for this online transition than others but it’s all over the map,” said Susan Bearden, chief innovation officer with the Consortium for School Networking. 

“Districts that were better prepared for this before it happened are probably handling it well. Other districts just were not at a
