Age UK offers benefits to support all generations

Posted on

first_imgEmployee Benefits Live 2015: Reward strategies need to be inclusive of all generations in the workplace so as to not discriminate against older workers, according to Caroline Bendelow (pictured), director of people and performance at Age UK.Speaking at a session at Employee Benefits Live 2015, Bendelow explained that employers need to rid workplaces of the myth that older workers do not want training or development benefits. The charity does this by offering all of its benefits to all staff, regardless of age or other restrictions.At the session ’From Gen Y to the ageing workforce: developing effective reward strategies for different generations’, Bendelow, said: “We aim to inspire, enable and support our staff, which we do with the culture and benefits we offer, and by benefiting from our older workers’ experiences.“Find out from your employees what they want, which we do with engagement surveys, and give something for everyone, including the information they need to make informed decisions.”The charity’s oldest member of staff, who is a shop floor worker, is 92 years of age.Luke Sondelski, global manager, compensation and benefits at Booking.com, who also spoke at the session, explained that the travel booking website engages its workforce, which has an average staff age of 32, with quizzes, lunches with co-workers you may not otherwise meet, and an annual global family and friends day, when employee’s loved ones can visit their place of work.Sondelski said: “A decent workplace culture needs to come from everyone rather than just those in management; the leadership team can set a direction, but employers need to make sure everyone is participating.”last_img read more

Avalanche Closes Richardson Highway Near Valdez

Posted on

first_imgOver the past 24 hours, a mix of heavy snow and rain has fallen in Valdez and the Copper River Basin resulting in very difficult and hazardous driving conditions on the Richardson, Edgerton, Glenn and Tok Cutoff highways. Temperatures have ranged in the high 20s to mid-30s. Crews will start clearing avalanche debris when the weather improves, avalanche risk decreases and it is safe to work in the area. Currently, heavy snow fall and unseasonably warm temperatures are creating prime conditions for additional avalanches. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities says the Richardson Highway is closed near Valdez, from mile 12-55, due to an avalanche at mile 39. The avalanche occurred this morning at approximately 3:30 a.m., and is an estimated 20 feet deep and 200 feet long. All available plows and sand trucks are out working to keep roads passable.center_img For updated road conditions visit 511.Alaska.Gov or call 511. The National Weather Service forecasts that heavy snow will taper off this afternoon, however light snow will continue overnight. The heaviest accumulation will be in Thompson Pass, with up to 45 inches. Valdez has received 12 inches of snow as of 6:30 a.m. and snow continues to fall steady across the region. Another weather front is expected to move in from the gulf Thursday, possibly bringing heavy snow for Thompson Pass with snow and rain in Valdez.last_img read more

Amitabh Bachchan This is how much tax Bollywood celebs paid this year

Posted on

first_imgAmitabh Bachchan in bell bottoms.TwitterAmitabh Bachchan has emerged as the highest tax-payer of the year from the film fraternity. The Shehenshah of Bollywood has paid Rs 70 crore as tax for the financial year 2018-19. The actor has left behind Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Shah Rukh Khan in the race to pay the highest tax.Last year Salman Khan had emerged as the highest taxpayer with an advance tax payment of Rs 44.5 crore. Prior to him, Akshay Kumar had paid the highest advance tax of Rs 29.5 crore in 2017. Amitabh Bachchan’s spokesperson has confirmed the news of him paying this particular amount of tax to DNA.Recently, Amitabh Bachchan had paid off loans of 2,084 farmers in Muzaffarpur and had also donated Rs 10 lakh to the family February 14 Pulwama terror attack victims.Amitabh Bachchan was recently seen in Sujoy Ghosh’s Badla. The film, a mystery thriller, received rave reviews from the audience and critics alike. Taapsee Pannu, Amrita Singh, Tony Luke, Manav Kaul and Tanveer Ghani were the other stars in the film.Following the film’s success, Big B had taken to Twitter to ask Shah Rukh Khan to give him a bonus and a party. What had followed was friendly banter between the two asking each other to give the party. “… about time someone started talking about this silent success .. !! because neither the Producer, nor the distributor, nor the on line Producer, or any else in the Industry, in general .. has even spent a nano second to compliment the success of this film #Badla .. thk u,” Big B had tweeted.To which Shah Rukh had tweeted, “Sir hum toh wait kar rahein hain ki aap party kab de rahein hain hum sabko! We r waiting outside Jalsa every nite!”Big B is busy shooting for fantasy thriller trilogy – Brahmastra – with Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, directed by Ayan Mukerji.last_img read more

Two Malaysian women caned for lesbian sex

Posted on

first_imgTwo Malaysian women were caned Monday for having lesbian sex in violation of strict Islamic laws, despite an outcry from activists at the “cruel and unjust” punishment.The case has sparked widespread condemnation and focused attention on what rights groups say is a deteriorating climate for the gay community in the Muslim-majority country.Campaigners said it was the first time that women in Malaysia have been caned for violating a sharia regulation which forbids same-sex relations.The country operates a dual-track legal system and Islamic courts can handle religious and family matters for Muslim citizens, as well as cases such as adultery.The women, aged 22 and 32, were arrested in April by Islamic enforcement officers after they were found in a car in a public square in northern Terengganu state, one of the country’s most conservative areas.The pair, whose identities have not been revealed, pleaded guilty last month to breaking Islamic laws and were sentenced to six strokes of the cane each and a fine of 3,300 ringgit ($800).They were caned at the Sharia High Court in Kuala Terengganu, state capital of Terengganu, a court official confirmed to AFP.The women’s conviction sparked a storm of criticism. Before the caning was carried out, Gwen Lee, Amnesty International’s Malaysia head, slammed the punishment as “cruel and unjust”.Malaysia “must end the use of caning and repeal the laws that impose these torturous punishments completely,” she said.Thilaga Sulathireh, from transgender rights group Justice for Sisters, said the caning would “increase the impunity of perpetrators to carry out acts of violence” aimed at gay people.Concerns have been mounting in recent weeks in Malaysia, a multi-ethnic country where some 60 per cent of the population is Muslim, about a deteriorating climate for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.The Islamic affairs minister has spoken out against homosexuals and ordered pictures of LGBT activists to be removed from a public exhibition, while a transgender woman was brutally attacked in the southern state of Negeri Sembilan.Malaysian Muslims have traditionally practised a tolerant brand of Islam but concerns have been growing in recent years that attitudes are becoming more conservative.last_img read more

Monsoon guide to mens grooming battles

Posted on

first_imgWhat women need and must do to deal with monsoon woes is something that everyone discusses, but what about the men? Most will be surprised that they have their own set of grooming issues to deal with and the season just adds to it.Sangeeta Velaskar, Vice President and Head, Medical Services and R&D, Kaya Limited. Here are some tips that can  give men a lowdown on keeping up with monsoon:* Skin: Men could opt for a sweat-proof sunscreen with SPF 30 to ensure that the humidity and sweat doesn’t wear the sunscreen off. Also Read – Best Telugu shows to watch on ‘Viu’Skincare routine for dry skin must include regular moisturisation to avoid dehydration. Dryness strips the skin of all its essential nutrients which in turn results in flaking. Incorporate a cleanser meant for sensitive skin and a cream-based moisturiser. Use a non-comedogenic moisturiser for oily skin to prevent acne breakouts and a light lotion-based moisturiser for dry and combination skin.Acne loves the sultry season and the moist weather acts as a catalyst for bacteria build-up. Follow up your skincare regime with an alcohol-free toner to unclog the pores. Also Read – American Crime Story 3 to chronicle Clinton’s impeachmentIt is essential to bathe twice a day to maintain hygiene and definitely once post work-out to avoid infection from sweat.* Hair: Monsoon season is notorious for itchy scalps, flaking and dandruff. Include a good anti-dandruff shampoo that is mild and also provides moisturisation at the same time. Wash your hair at least thrice a week and keep the scalp dry to avoid fungal and bacterial infections. Short and regularly trimmed hair would be ideal.last_img read more

Should We Worry About Computer Algorithms Mental Health

Posted on

first_img(Credit: Shutterstock)Is my car hallucinating? Is the algorithm that runs the police surveillance system in my city paranoid? Marvin the android in Douglas Adams’s Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy had a pain in all the diodes down his left-hand side. Is that how my toaster feels?This all sounds ludicrous until we realize that our algorithms are increasingly being made in our own image. As we’ve learned more about our own brains, we’ve enlisted that knowledge to create algorithmic versions of ourselves. These algorithms control the speeds of driverless cars, identify targets for autonomous military drones, compute our susceptibility to commercial and political advertising, find our soulmates in online dating services, and evaluate our insurance and credit risks. Algorithms are becoming the near-sentient backdrop of our lives.The most popular algorithms currently being put into the workforce are deep learning algorithms. These algorithms mirror the architecture of human brains by building complex representations of information. They learn to understand environments by experiencing them, identify what seems to matter, and figure out what predicts what. Being like our brains, these algorithms are increasingly at risk of mental-health problems.Deep Blue, the algorithm that beat the world chess champion Garry Kasparov in 1997, did so through brute force, examining millions of positions a second, up to 20 moves in the future. Anyone could understand how it worked even if they couldn’t do it themselves. AlphaGo, the deep learning algorithm that beat Lee Sedol at the game of Go in 2016, is fundamentally different. Using deep neural networks, it created its own understanding of the game, considered to be the most complex of board games. AlphaGo learned by watching others and by playing itself. Computer scientists and Go players alike are befuddled by AlphaGo’s unorthodox play. Its strategy seems at first to be awkward. Only in retrospect do we understand what AlphaGo was thinking, and even then it’s not all that clear.To give you a better understanding of what I mean by thinking, consider this. Programs such as Deep Blue can have a bug in their programming. They can crash from memory overload. They can enter a state of paralysis due to a never-ending loop or simply spit out the wrong answer on a lookup table. But all of these problems are solvable by a programmer with access to the source code, the code in which the algorithm was written.Algorithms such as AlphaGo are entirely different. Their problems are not apparent by looking at their source code. They are embedded in the way that they represent information. That representation is an ever-changing high-dimensional space, much like walking around in a dream. Solving problems there requires nothing less than a psychotherapist for algorithms.Take the case of driverless cars. A driverless car that sees its first stop sign in the real world will have already seen millions of stop signs during training, when it built up its mental representation of what a stop sign is. Under various light conditions, in good weather and bad, with and without bullet holes, the stop signs it was exposed to contain a bewildering variety of information. Under most normal conditions, the driverless car will recognize a stop sign for what it is. But not all conditions are normal. Some recent demonstrations have shown that a few black stickers on a stop sign can fool the algorithm into thinking that the stop sign is a 60 mph sign. Subjected to something frighteningly similar to the high-contrast shade of a tree, the algorithm hallucinates.How many different ways can the algorithm hallucinate? To find out, we would have to provide the algorithm with all possible combinations of input stimuli. This means that there are potentially infinite ways in which it can go wrong. Crackerjack programmers already know this, and take advantage of it by creating what are called adversarial examples. The AI research group LabSix at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has shown that, by presenting images to Google’s image-classifying algorithm and using the data it sends back, they can identify the algorithm’s weak spots. They can then do things similar to fooling Google’s image-recognition software into believing that an X-rated image is just a couple of puppies playing in the grass.Algorithms also make mistakes because they pick up on features of the environment that are correlated with outcomes, even when there is no causal relationship between them. In the algorithmic world, this is called overfitting. When this happens in a brain, we call it superstition.The biggest algorithmic failure due to superstition that we know of so far is called the parable of Google Flu. Google Flu used what people type into Google to predict the location and intensity of influenza outbreaks. Google Flu’s predictions worked fine at first, but they grew worse over time, until eventually it was predicting twice the number of cases as were submitted to the US Centers for Disease Control. Like an algorithmic witchdoctor, Google Flu was simply paying attention to the wrong things.Algorithmic pathologies might be fixable. But in practice, algorithms are often proprietary black boxes whose updating is commercially protected. Cathy O’Neil’s Weapons of Math Destruction (2016) describes a veritable freakshow of commercial algorithms whose insidious pathologies play out collectively to ruin peoples’ lives. The algorithmic faultline that separates the wealthy from the poor is particularly compelling. Poorer people are more likely to have bad credit, to live in high-crime areas, and to be surrounded by other poor people with similar problems. Because of this, algorithms target these individuals for misleading ads that prey on their desperation, offer them subprime loans, and send more police to their neighborhoods, increasing the likelihood that they will be stopped by police for crimes committed at similar rates in wealthier neighborhoods. Algorithms used by the judicial system give these individuals longer prison sentences, reduce their chances for parole, block them from jobs, increase their mortgage rates, demand higher premiums for insurance, and so on.This algorithmic death spiral is hidden in nesting dolls of black boxes: black-box algorithms that hide their processing in high-dimensional thoughts that we can’t access are further hidden in black boxes of proprietary ownership. This has prompted some places, such as New York City, to propose laws enforcing the monitoring of fairness in algorithms used by municipal services. But if we can’t detect bias in ourselves, why would we expect to detect it in our algorithms?By training algorithms on human data, they learn our biases. One recent study led by Aylin Caliskan at Princeton University found that algorithms trained on the news learned racial and gender biases essentially overnight. As Caliskan noted: ‘Many people think machines are not biased. But machines are trained on human data. And humans are biased.’Social media is a writhing nest of human bias and hatred. Algorithms that spend time on social media sites rapidly become bigots. These algorithms are biased against male nurses and female engineers. They will view issues such as immigration and minority rights in ways that don’t stand up to investigation. Given half a chance, we should expect algorithms to treat people as unfairly as people treat each other. But algorithms are by construction overconfident, with no sense of their own infallibility. Unless they are trained to do so, they have no reason to question their incompetence (much like people).For the algorithms I’ve described above, their mental-health problems come from the quality of the data they are trained on. But algorithms can also have mental-health problems based on the way they are built. They can forget older things when they learn new information. Imagine learning a new co-worker’s name and suddenly forgetting where you live. In the extreme, algorithms can suffer from what is called catastrophic forgetting, where the entire algorithm can no longer learn or remember anything. A theory of human age-related cognitive decline is based on a similar idea: when memory becomes overpopulated, brains and desktop computers alike require more time to find what they know.When things become pathological is often a matter of opinion. As a result, mental anomalies in humans routinely go undetected. Synaesthetes such as my daughter, who perceives written letters as colours, often don’t realise that they have a perceptual gift until they’re in their teens. Evidence based on Ronald Reagan’s speech patterns now suggests that he probably had dementia while in office as US president. And The Guardian reports that the mass shootings that have occurred every nine out of 10 days for roughly the past five years in the US are often perpetrated by so-called ‘normal’ people who happen to break under feelings of persecution and depression.In many cases, it takes repeated malfunctioning to detect a problem. Diagnosis of schizophrenia requires at least one month of fairly debilitating symptoms. Antisocial personality disorder, the modern term for psychopathy and sociopathy, cannot be diagnosed in individuals until they are 18, and then only if there is a history of conduct disorders before the age of 15.There are no biomarkers for most mental-health disorders, just like there are no bugs in the code for AlphaGo. The problem is not visible in our hardware. It’s in our software. The many ways our minds go wrong make each mental-health problem unique unto itself. We sort them into broad categories such as schizophrenia and Asperger’s syndrome, but most are spectrum disorders that cover symptoms we all share to different degrees. In 2006, the psychologists Matthew Keller and Geoffrey Miller argued that this is an inevitable property of the way that brains are built.There is a lot that can go wrong in minds such as ours. Carl Jung once suggested that in every sane man hides a lunatic. As our algorithms become more like ourselves, it is getting easier to hide.This article was originally published at Aeon and has been republished under Creative Commons.last_img read more

After shooting Puerto Vallarta Tourism safe for LGBT travelers

Posted on

first_imgPuerto Vallarta is the only destination that has an LGBT Tourism center offering members of the LGBTQ community direct assistance while visiting. It is estimated that, in general, about 20% of visitors to Puerto Vallarta, specifically in the city’s Romantic Zone, are part of the LGBTQ community. Last year, more than 17,000 LGBTQ international visitors came to Puerto Vallarta for the Vallarta Pride event alone.Armando Sánchez, President of the LGBT Business & Tourism Association of Puerto Vallarta (ACT LGBT A.C.), said: “We believe this is a random and isolated incident, and definitely not part of the daily life in Puerto Vallarta. When we learned of the incident we made sure that Carl and Marc were taken care of, and we worked behind the scenes to ensure that the proper procedures were conducted in accordance with Mexican law. We also reached out to Mark and Carl to offer them our support and assistance on behalf of the different local LGBT associations and organizations.”Blea, a military veteran, was hit in the thigh and is still unable to walk. Both he and Lange are returning to recuperate in the United States. eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) The Tourism Board for Puerto Vallarta and the LGBT Business & Tourism Association of Puerto Vallarta released a lengthy statement today about this weekend’s attack on a gay man and his husband.Two men were holding hands walking home from a nightclub in Puerto Vallarta when another man yelled at the couple and then pulled out a gun and shot at them. These two men – Carl Blea and Mark Lange – are real estate professionals from Palm Springs, California, who also own a condo in Puerto Vallarta, and they say they never said a word to this man as they were walking.Puerto Vallarta is saying this shooting was the result of a botched robbery, but Blea and Lange say the shooter never demanded anything such as money from them, and it was clearly a hate crime.Puerto Vallarta Tourism benefits greatly from the queer dollar and is now trying to stop any potential damage to its image as a safe gay destination.The Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board and the LGBT Business & Tourism Association said in a statement, “We stand in solidarity with the members of our local LGBT community and condemn any acts of crime.”Javier Aranda Pedrero, Director of the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board, said, “We, along with the police, and authorities across local, state, and federal government have been monitoring this situation along with the LGBT associations and leaders of the destination.” He added, “These types of incidents are rare and extremely isolated.” Share this:center_img Like this:Like Loading… Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… Puerto Vallarta Tourism Chief: Visit to become one of us, you will be safe!Mexico’s premier LGBT destination to host major LGBT events in 2016 and 2017″We are one family” – LGBTQ pride festival returns to Puerto VallartaMore articles on eTurboNews click herelast_img read more

Get to know ASPNET Core Web API Tutorial

Posted on

first_imgASP.NET Web API is a framework that makes it easy to build HTTP services that reach a broad range of clients, including browsers and mobile devices. ASP.NET Web API is an ideal platform for building RESTful applications on the .NET Framework. In today’s post we shall be looking at the following topics: Quick recap of MVC framework Why Web APIs were incepted and it’s evolution? Introduction to .NET Core? Overview of ASP.NET Core architecture This article is an extract from the book Mastering ASP.NET Web API written by Mithun Pattankar and Malendra Hurbuns. Quick recap of MVC framework Model-View-Controller (MVC) is a powerful and elegant way of separating concerns within an application and applies itself extremely well to web applications. With ASP.NETMVC, it’s translated roughly as follows: Models (M): These are the classes that represent the domain you are interested in. These domain objects often encapsulate data stored in a database as well as code that manipulates the data and enforces domain-specific business logic. With ASP.NETMVC, this is most likely a Data Access Layer of some kind, using a tool like Entity Framework or NHibernate or classic ADO.NET. View (V): This is a template to dynamically generate HTML. Controller(C): This is a special class that manages the relationship between the View and the Model. It responds to user input, talks to the Model, and decides which view to render (if any). In ASP.NETMVC, this class is conventionally denoted by the suffix Controller. Why Web APIs were incepted and it’s evolution? Looking back to days when ASP.NETASMX-based XML web service was widely used for building service-oriented applications, it was easiest way to create SOAP-based service which can be used by both .NET applications and non .NET applications. It was available only over HTTP. Around 2006, Microsoft released Windows Communication Foundation (WCF).WCF was and even now a powerful technology for building SOA-based applications. It was giant leap in the world of Microsoft .NET world. WCF was flexible enough to be configured as HTTP service, Remoting service, TCP service, and so on. Using Contracts of WCF, we would keep entire business logic code base same and expose the service as HTTP based or non HTTP based via SOAP/ non SOAP. Until 2010 the ASMX based XML web service or WCF service were widely used in client server based applications, in-fact everything was running smoothly. But the developers of .NET or non .NET community started to feel need for completely new SOA technology for client server applications. Some of reasons behind them were as follows: With applications in production, the amount of data while communicating started to explode and transferring them over the network was bandwidth consuming. SOAP being light weight to some extent started to show signs of payload increase. A few KB SOAP packets were becoming few MBs of data transfer. Consuming the SOAP service in applications lead to huge applications size because of WSDL and proxy generation. This was even worse when it was used in web applications. Any changes to SOAP services lead to repeat of consuming them by proxy generation. This wasn’t easy task for any developers. JavaScript-based web frameworks were getting released and gaining ground for much simpler way of web development. Consuming SOAP-based services were not that optimal way. Hand-held devices were becoming popular like tablets, smartphones. They had more focused applications and needed very lightweight service oriented approach. Browser based Single Page Applications (SPA) was gaining ground very rapidly. Using SOAP based services for quite heavy for these SPA. Microsoft released REST based WCF components which can be configured to respond in JSON or XML, but even then it was WCF which was heavy technology to be used. Applications where no longer just large enterprise services, but there was need was more focused light weight service to be up & running in few days and much easier to use. Any developer who has seen evolving nature of SOA based technologies like ASMX, WCF or any SOAP based felt the need to have much lighter, HTTP based services. HTTP only, JSON compatible POCO based lightweight services was need of the hour and concept of Web API started gaining momentum. What is Web API? A Web API is a programmatic interface to a system that is accessed via standard HTTP methods and headers. A Web API can be accessed by a variety of HTTP clients, including browsers and mobile devices. For Web API to be successful HTTP based service, it needed strong web infrastructure like hosting, caching, concurrency, logging, security etc. One of the best web infrastructure was none other than ASP.NET. ASP.NET either in form Web Form or MVC was widely adopted, so the solid base for web infrastructure was mature enough to be extended as Web API. Microsoft responded to community needs by creating ASP.NET Web API- a super-simple yet very powerful framework for building HTTP-only, JSON-by-default web services without all the fuss of WCF. ASP.NET Web API can be used to build REST based services in matter of minutes and can easily consumed with any front end technologies. It used IIS (mostly) for hosting, caching, concurrency etc. features, it became quite popular. It was launched in 2012 with most basics needs for HTTP based services like convention-based Routing, HTTP Request and Response messages. Later Microsoft released much bigger and better ASP.NET Web API 2 along with ASP.NETMVC 5 in Visual Studio 2013. ASP.NET Web API 2 evolved at much faster pace with these features. Installed via NuGet Installing of Web API 2 was made simpler by using NuGet, either create empty ASP.NET or MVC project and then run command in NuGet Package Manager Console: Install-Package Microsoft.AspNet.WebApi Attribute Routing Initial release of Web API was based on convention-based routing meaning we define one or more route templates and work around it. It’s simple without much fuss as routing logic in a single place & it’s applied across all controllers. The real world applications are more complicated with resources (controllers/ actions) have child resources like customers having orders, books having authors etc. In such cases convention-based routing is not scalable. Web API 2 introduced a new concept of Attribute Routing which uses attributes in programming languages to define routes. One straight forward advantage is developer has full controls how URIs for Web API are formed. Here is quick snippet of Attribute Routing: [Route(“customers/{customerId}/orders”)]public IEnumerableGetOrdersByCustomer(intcustomerId) { … } For more understanding on this, read Attribute Routing in ASP.NET Web API 2 (https://www.asp.net/web-api/overview/web-api-routing-and-actions/attribute-routing-in-web-api-2) OWIN self-host ASP.NET Web API lives on ASP.NET framework, leading to think that it can be hosted on IIS only. The Web API 2 came new hosting package. Microsoft.AspNet.WebApi.OwinSelfHost With this package it can self-hosted outside IIS using OWIN/Katana. CORS (Cross Origin Resource Sharing) Any Web API developed either using .NET or non .NET technologies and meant to be used across different web frameworks, then enabling CORS is must. A must read on CORS&ASP.NET Web API 2 (https://www.asp.net/web-api/overview/security/enabling-cross-origin-requests-in-web-api). IHTTPActionResult and Web API OData improvements are other few notable features which helped evolve Web API 2 as strong technology for developing HTTP based services. ASP.NET Web API 2 has becoming more powerful over the years with C# language improvements like Asynchronous programming using Async/ Await, LINQ, Entity Framework Integration, Dependency Injection with DI frameworks, and so on. ASP.NET into Open Source world Every technology has to evolve with growing needs and advancements in hardware, network and software industry, ASP.NET Web API is no exception to that. Some of the evolution that ASP.NET Web API should undergo from perspectives of developer community, enterprises and end users are: NETMVC and Web API even though part of ASP.NET stack but their implementation and code base is different. A unified code base reduces burden of maintaining them. It’s known that Web API’s are consumed by various clients like web applications, Native apps, and Hybrid apps, desktop applications using different technologies (.NET or non .NET). But how about developing Web API in cross platform way, need not rely always on Windows OS/ Visual Studio IDE. Open sourcing the ASP.NET stack so that it’s adopted on much bigger scale. End users are benefitted with open source innovations. We saw that why Web APIs were incepted, how they evolved into powerful HTTP based service and some evolutions required. With these thoughts Microsoft made an entry into world of Open Source by launching .NET Core and ASP.NET Core 1.0. What is .NET Core? .NET Core is a cross-platform free and open-source managed software framework similar to .NET Framework. It consists of CoreCLR, a complete cross-platform runtime implementation of CLR. .NET Core 1.0 was released on 27 June 2016 along with Visual Studio 2015 Update 3, which enables .NET Core development. In much simpler terms .NET Core applications can be developed, tested, deployed on cross platforms such as Windows, Linux flavours, macOS systems. With help of .NET Core, we don’t really need Windows OS and in particular Visual Studio IDE to develop ASP.NET web applications, command-line apps, libraries, and UWP apps. In short, let’s understand .NET Core components: CoreCLR:It is a virtual machine that manages the execution of .NET programs. CoreCLRmeans Core Common Language Runtime, it includes the garbage collector, JIT compiler, base .NET data types and many low-level classes. CoreFX: .NET Core foundational libraries likes class for collections, file systems, console, XML, Async and many others. CoreRT: .NET Core runtime optimized for AOT (ahead of time compilation) scenarios, with the accompanying .NET Native compiler toolchain. Its main responsibility is to do native compilation of code written in any of our favorite .NET programming language. .NET Core shares subset of original .NET framework, plus it comes with its own set of APIs that is not part of .NET framework. This results in some shared APIs that can be used by both .NET core and .NET framework. A .Net Core application can easily work on existing .NET Framework but not vice versa. .NET Core provides a CLI (Command Line Interface) for an execution entry point for operating systems and provides developer services like compilation and package management. The following are the .NET Core interesting points to know: .NET Core can be installed on cross platforms like Windows, Linux, andmacOS. It can be used in device, cloud, and embedded/ IoT scenarios. Visual Studio IDE is not mandatory to work with .NET Core, but when working on Windows OS we can leverage existing IDE knowledge to work. .NET Core is modular, meaning that instead of assemblies, developers deal with NuGet packages. .NET Core relies on its package manager to receive updates because cross platform technology can’t rely on Windows Updates. To learn .NET Core, we just need a shell, text editor and its runtime installed. .NET Core comes with flexible deployment. It can be included in your app or installed side-by-side user- or machine-wide. .NET Core apps can also be self-hosted/run as standalone apps. .NET Core supports four cross-platform scenarios–ASP.NET Core web apps, command-line apps, libraries, and Universal Windows Platform apps. It does not implement Windows Forms or WPF which render the standard GUI for desktop software on Windows. At present only C# programming language can be used to write .NET Core apps. F# and VB support are on the way. We will primarily focus on ASP.NET Core web apps which includes MVC and Web API. CLI apps, libraries will be covered briefly. What is ASP.NET Core? A new open-source and cross-platform framework for building modern cloud-based web applications using .NET. ASP.NET Core is completely open-source, you can download it from GitHub. It’s cross platform meaning you can develop ASP.NET Core apps on Linux/macOS and of course on Windows OS. ASP.NET was first released almost 15 years back with .NET framework. Since then it’s adopted by millions of developers for large, small applications. ASP.NET has evolved with many capabilities. With .NET Core as cross platform, ASP.NET took a huge leap beyond boundaries of Windows OS environment for development and deployment of web applications. ASP.NET Core overview ASP.NET Core high level overview provides following insights: NET Core runs both on Full .NET framework and .NET Core. NET Core applications with full .NET framework can only be developed and deployed only Windows OS/Server. When using .NET core, it can be developed and deployed on platform of choice. The logos of Windows, Linux, macOSindicates that you can work with ASP.NET Core. NET Core when on non-Windows machine, use the .NET Core libraries to run the applications. It’s obvious you won’t have all full .NET libraries but most of them are available. Developers working on ASP.NET Core can easily switch working on any machine not confined to Visual Studio 2015 IDE. NET Core can run with different version of .NET Core. ASP.NET Core has much more foundational improvements apart from being cross-platform, we gain following advantages of using ASP.NET Core: Totally Modular: ASP.NET Core takes totally modular approach for application development, every component needed to build application are well factored into NuGet packages. Only add required packages through NuGet to keep overall application lightweight. NET Core is no longer based on System.Web.dll. Choose your editors and tools: Visual Studio IDE was used to develop ASP.NET applications on Windows OS box, now since we have moved beyond the Windows world. Then we will require IDE/editors/ Tools required for developingASP.NET applications on Linux/macOS. Microsoft developed powerful lightweight code editors for almost any type of web applications called as Visual Studio Code. NET Core is such a framework that we don’t need Visual Studio IDE/ code to develop applications. We can use code editors like Sublime, Vim also. To work with C# code in editors, installed and use OmniSharp plugin. OmniSharp is a set of tooling, editor integrations and libraries that together create an ecosystem that allows you to have a great programming experience no matter what your editor and operating system of choice may be.

Don Shooter shows health improvementcenter_img “This fire is controlled,” Ramirez said on television at the refinery, where the tank was in flames behind him. “We’re putting it out.”An investigation into the cause will be conducted, but all indications are that it was sparked by a strong electrical storm, Ramirez said.“We suppose a lightning bolt hit one of our tanks and the fire broke out,” he said.The refinery produces fuel for the domestic market. But the blaze won’t lead to any shortages of fuel in the country, said Asdrubal Chavez, vice president of refining for the state oil company Petroleos de Venezuela SA.A much larger fire was sparked by a powerful blast last month at the Amuay refinery that killed at least 42 people, the country’s worst-ever refinery disaster.

He said on state television that no one was hurt.About 120 firefighters were working to put out the blaze and had quickly extinguished one of the tanks, Ramirez said.

CFPB Acknowledges Exploding Popularity of FinTechs

first_img October 24, 2016 694 Views CFPB Fintechs Innovation Project Catalyst 2016-10-24 Seth Welborn in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Servicing In recent years, the popularity of FinTech companies, or those that rely on technology to provide financial services, has boomed. According to Forbes, investment in FinTechs totaled $3 billion in 2013; by 2015, just two years later, global FinTech investment for the year totaled more than $20 billion.With FinTechs causing such a disruption in the financial services market, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has taken notice. On Monday, the CFPB issued its first-ever Project Catalyst report to highlight market developments that can potentially benefit consumers. Those developments included improved mortgage servicing platforms and expanding responsible access to credit.The report includes developments from both emerging FinTech startups and traditional financial services institutions, and highlights Project Catalyst’s work to ensure that consumer protections are included in emerging products and services from the start.“Innovation has enormous potential to improve the financial lives of consumers,” said CFPB Director Richard Cordray. “At the same time, market developments cannot skirt the need for strong consumer protection. Through Project Catalyst and other Bureau activities, we are working to expand our own knowledge and to foster a consumer financial marketplace where emerging products can be developed that are safe and beneficial for consumers.”Evolving technologies have driven rapid change in the financial marketplace, an environment that can pose both benefits and risks to consumers, according to CFPB. The Bureau is seeking to foster a market where new innovations and emerging products are safe and beneficial for consumers, and the CFPB’s Project Catalyst initiative is designed to encourage consumer-friendly innovation. One of the top priorities for Project Catalyst is to more closely engage with companies, entrepreneurs, and other stakeholders that are most involved in innovation in the financial marketplace, according to CFPB.Project Catalyst’s report noted that many companies are looking to adopt or build more modern technology platforms that provide more flexibility and scalability than legacy platforms, in order to improve mortgage loan servicing. The report found that some companies are building platforms that feature more user-friendly interfaces, and others are looking at machine learning for early detection of when borrowers are likely to suffer financial distress so that steps may be taken in order to prevent the borrower from defaulting.Also, the report found that a number of innovators are seeking to expand responsible access to credit by looking to alternative forms of data or newer methods of analyzing the data to assess an applicant’s creditworthiness. The CFPB estimates that 45 million American adults either have no credit history or not a sufficient enough credit history to generate a credit score. A lack of a sufficient credit score has been cited as one of the major barriers to obtaining a mortgage loan.Additionally, Project Catalyst found some FinTechs that are working to improve customer engagement around credit reporting and address issues in credit reporting accuracy. One company is working to streamline the process that would allow consumers to dispute errors on their credit reports, and others are modeling actions that consumers can take to improve their credit standing. Other companies are offering consumers more information about their credit report on a more regular basis, according to the CFPB.Click here to view the entire report.center_img CFPB Acknowledges Exploding Popularity of FinTechs Sharelast_img read more
