Yesterday’s Scandal, Today’s Mandate: Antis Embraces Operation Choke Point as Policy

Opinion U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney Fairfax, VA – -( On Tuesday, U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) unabashedly embraced the tactics behind one of the most shameful policies of the Obama era, openly using the guise of her federal authority to berate and not so subtly threaten a bank for lawfully serving businesses that don’t reflect her political views. While the media did their best to protect Barack Obama and his administration from any hint of scandal, two gun related issues man...

Microsoft open sources its data compression algorithm and hardware for the cloud

The amount of data that the big cloud computing providers now store is staggering, so it’s no surprise that most store all of this information as compressed data in some form or another — just like you used to zip your files back in the days of floppy disks, CD-ROMs and low-bandwidth connections. Typically, those systems are closely guarded secrets, but today, Microsoft open sourced the algorithm, hardware specification and Verilog source code for how it compresses data in its Azure cloud. Th...

Facebook's plan to eat the $127 billion data center market swallowed $2.5 billion last year, and will soon gobble more than $10 billion a year (FB)

The Open Compute Project was founded by Facebook several years ago to create faster, cheaper, designs for data center hardware that are free for anyone to use. It has become a wildly popular project, and now includes Microsoft, Google, Apple, Goldman Sachs and other big companies. A new report commissioned by OCP says that its hardware, excluding that bought by its board members like Facebook and Microsoft, has become a $2.5 billion market, and will grow to $10 billion in three years. Next up:...

The Tactical Industry and the Erosion of Constitutional Rights

by Eric Dorenbush – Green Eye Tactical Benchmade assists Oregon City Police in the destruction of firearms U.S.A. –-( Earlier this week, a Facebook post by the Oregon City Police went viral and resulted in severe backlash to the knife company Benchmade. Right up front, I want to restate, as I have in the past, that Green Eye Tactical trains RESPONSIBLE citizens. That is how I look at it. I don’t care if you are civilian, LE, Fed, Military, or whatever we will offer the same hig...

Los Angeles County’s child protection office says agency not to blame for death of 10-year-old Anthony Avalos

By Sara Tiano Two months after the death of 10-year-old Anthony Avalos, a report from the Los Angeles County Office of Child Protection (OCP) has determined that the county Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) took “considerable actions” to protect the child. In light of a forthcoming state audit about DCFS practices, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors discussed the report on Tuesday, including its recommendations for improving the county’s child welfare system. The goal of...

ECWCS question

Does the Gen III use epic like the PCU? I was issued and used the OCP ecwcs system when I was in but just bought a pair of PCU level 5 and it seems to be thicker then the ecwcs. Just curious if anyone knows if it's the same martial. Thanks! Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

Dynamic Hybrid-SMR: an OCP proposal to improve data center disk drives

Early last year, we published a whitepaper on the need for new disks in data centers, and announced we were joining the Open Compute Project (OCP) to help drive innovation in IT infrastructure. Since then, we’ve been collaborating with members of the OCP storage project to align on a collection of common Cloud Hard Disk Drive (HDD) features and interfaces to adapt to exponentially growing storage needs in data centers.Today, we’re announcing that we’re sharing a proposal with OCP for Dynamic Hyb...

Tech giants should leave internet policing up to AI, for the sake of humanity

30 years ago, Peter Weller took on the role as Robocop, a dystopian entity revived by mega corporation Omni Consumer Products (OCP) as a superhuman law enforcer running the Detroit Police Department. Badass cop, but maybe not the most effective one. Robocop had a fourth classified law never to arrest or attack anyone from OCP — the company that made it. But gone are the days when this sci-fi action film was perceived as just another fanatical blockbuster. We have entered an era that some perceiv...

Biologists from MSU discovered the carotenoid transfer between 2 proteins

Specialists from the biological faculty of Moscow State University have studied the way the photoactive orange carotenoid protein (OCP) exchanges carotenoid with proteins of similar structure. The discovery will boost the development of OCP-based antioxidant drugs aimed at protecting healthy cells during cancer treatment. The paper was published in the Biophysical Journal.

The oral contraceptive’s PR problem

Recently in Missouri, a bill was proposed that would ban women on oral contraceptives (OCP) from working. In the world of politics, the use of contraceptives has been discussed ad nauseam, often without medical consideration. As physicians, in order to continue to uphold our Hippocratic Oath: “First do no harm,” it is imperative that we continue to challenge any law that goes against scientific evidence, and our voices must be heard loudly and often. The oral contraceptive pill has a PR problem,...

Photoactivation mechanism of a carotenoid-based photoreceptor [Biochemistry]

Photoprotection is essential for efficient photosynthesis. Cyanobacteria have evolved a unique photoprotective mechanism mediated by a water-soluble carotenoid-based photoreceptor known as orange carotenoid protein (OCP). OCP undergoes large conformational changes in response to intense blue light, and the photoactivated OCP facilitates dissipation of excess energy via direct interaction with allophycocyanins...

Inside Facebook's plan to eat another $350 billion IT market (FB)

On an ordinary work day in mid-2016, a handful of Facebook engineers were sitting on the couches in a corner of the company's Menlo Park, California, headquarters when one of them tossed out a wacky idea. He suggested doing something that had never been done before and could potentially upend the $350 billion telecom market. "It can't be so difficult to build our own system," the engineer said, referring to the telecom equipment that sends data across cables and wireless networks, and which the ...

AT&T just completed a first-of-its kind test ... and Cisco should be terrified (CSCO, JNPR)

A week ago, AT&T did something with network technology that's never been done before and companies like Cisco and Juniper Network should be terrified. AT&T ran a test using data from its customers that proved it can build a super-fast, reliable network with inexpensive no-name computer switches, some open source software and software from a startup. In industry speak: that no-name hardware devices AT&T used are  known as "white box" switches. But that's not all. AT&T's successful test, conducted...

Things are getting testy between two key players in Facebook's hugely important Open Compute Project

When Facebook launched its Open Compute Project back in 2011, it was hoping to radically change the multi-billion dollar computer hardware industry. And by nearly all accounts, it did — especially the computer networking industry. OCP creates open source hardware for data centers that includes servers, storage, networking equipment, and other stuff. Engineers can freely take hardware designs and collaborate and change them, with no intellectual property concerns. With the success of the organiza...
