As the RESERVOIR project moves into its third and final year, this newsletter looks at some of the achievements that have taken place so far. Focus is also placed on the the importance of best practices and standards and how alliances between cloud computing interoperability and security standards groups have been formed. Finally we look at how cloud can both improve security and resilience and how it also raises specific challenges. RESERVOIR – Two Years on Since its launch in February 2008, the RESERVOIR project has defined a Reference Architecture for a next generation of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Clouds ...
which is based on the belief that setting high standards and establishing measurable goals can improve individual outcomes in education. The Act requires states to develop assessments in basic skills to be given to all students in certain grades, if those states are to receive federal funding for schools. The Act does not assert a national achievement standard; standards are set by each individual state. Since enactment, Congress increased federal funding of education, from $42.2 billion in 2001 to $54.4 billion in 2007. No Child Left Behind received a 40.4% increase from $17.4 billion in 2001 to $24.4 billion. The funding for ...
World Histories
Compare any two maps of the world and a host of differences will become apparent. Placenames vary across time and culture, but so too do the geophysical and biological features represented and the determination of a ‘centre’ and a ‘top’. In one map, for instance, a landmass labelled ‘North America’ may be centre and top, in another it may be ‘Europa’; one may chart the fl ow of rivers, another human migration. Smaller differences are also apparent, from the colours used – for example, blue means water, pink means British Empire – to the fonts used in labels. World histories too come in a wide array of forms, varying in rhetorical ... market research, surveys and trends
NIST Tech Beat – September 22, 2009
A research team at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) studying sugar-coated nanoparticles for use as a possible cancer therapy has uncovered a delicate balancing act that makes the particles more effective than conventional thinking says they should be. Just like individuals in a crowd respecting other people’s personal space, the particles work because they get close together, but not too close. In cooperation with colleagues at The Johns Hopkins University, Dartmouth College, the University of Manitoba and two biopharmaceutical companies, the NIST team has demonstrated* that the particles—essentially ... market research, surveys and trends

A November 2009 technical paper from the Research Center for Information Security (RCIS), National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) "describes a new password-based mutual authentication protocol for Web systems which prevents various kinds of phishing attacks. This protocol provides a protection of user's passwords against any phishers even if dictionary attack is employed, and prevents phishers from imitating a false sense of successful authentication to users. The protocol is designed considering interoperability with many recent Web applications which requires many features which ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Security? what security?
We live in a world now that whatever you read you are bound to come across the word “Security” in some form. This word covers a whole gamut of meanings, so let’s go back to basics of a simple definition: “Security is about freedom from doubt, anxiety, fear; risk or danger; safety. It also has associated with this meaning the context of confidence in that freedom.” Now if we then added the little word of IT in front, we have one of the bains of the IT manager as Nigel Stanley, Bloor Research’s Practice Leader for Security explains, “IT security comprehensively covers the whole remit of ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Perhaps the biggest compliment a blogger can receive is more traffic (an increase in the number of visitors) to their site. It creates a feeling of accomplishment and high credibility. Any blogger would enjoy the reputation of having their opinions and information spread across the Internet, reaching thousands, if not millions of people. This question (more like a desire) consumes the minds of most bloggers and it's quite legit. In fact, every time I talk to someone who blogs, the first thing they ask me is "How can I improve my SEO" once they find out I'm an SEO guy. This is a guest submission... For the ...

which can be used to bring connectivity to rural communities in Africa. The £20,000 boxes use a single Pentium 4 PC split out using thin client devices to offer computing to 10 people via local wireless access or mobile broadband. The solar power created from a single panel is enough to power the PC, 10 monitors, lighting and also to charge mobile phones. Computer Aid founder Tony Roberts notes: 'The power of this idea is that we can drop that container anywhere in the world, literally in the middle of the Sahara desert.'"
