Cloud Technology by NuoDB That Can Predictably Scale Huge Databases in the Cloud

To accommodate the increasing demand for the management of databases and other technological innovations that rely on the internet, there has been an exponential increase if cloud computing to address the emerging challenges facing data integrity. The latest and fast developing technologies in the cyberspace industry is known as NuoDB Cloud technology. The innovation provides several selections and choices of adaptable database techniques that are elastically scalable to accommodate new opportunities in the competitive market. The technology by NuoDB Cloud application embraces architectures that are based on SQL elasticity for processing of mega data in seconds. Due to the compliance of the technology to SQL, it is sometimes called New SQL.

When a new server for scaling-out is added to the system, the speed of the database increases a hundred fold, and that implies that the NuoDB Cloud system has an architecture for distribution of objects the operates optimally in the cloud. The NuoDB Cloud technology can distribute tasks and scale out different tasks to several processors without meeting data bottlenecks associated with other types of servers. Using the peer-to-peer system of messaging, tasks are routed via many nodes, and the technology employs a tiered approach comprising of multiple or redundant managers of storage or SM and TEs or transaction engine configurations. The technique helps to predictably scale data in the clouds. The SMs and TEs can function on similar platforms.

Integrated Education with ClassDojo

Parent-teacher communication has always been a challenge: both parents and teachers are, by nature, busy people, and a combination of conflicting schedules and heavy workloads often leads to long periods without any real interaction. The makers of ClassDojo intend to change this.

ClassDojo is a communication platform which encourages connections between teachers, parents and students. Parents and teachers can exchange messages using a built-in messenger feature, allowing parents to have a more in-depth understanding of their child’s education. Students can post photos and videos of their school day to their school’s Story, which both allows them an outlet for otherwise distracting social media impulses and shows parents and teachers what the students find most engaging and interesting about their experience. The app intends to foster a sense of community and positive culture through ground-up change, and it appears to be working: two out of three schools in America have at least one teacher who is active on the service, and with full support for over 30 languages, international growth is sure to be rapid.

Launched in August of 2011, ClassDojo began as a simple point tracker to allow teachers to reward students for good behavior; it has since evolved to become a powerful communications tool, and is rapidly developing into an all-in-one education suite. In January 2016, a collaboration with Stanford University produced a five-part video series on the growth mindset, the idea that a child’s potential is not based on how innately “smart” they are, but rather on how hard they are willing to work. A second collaboration with Stanford produced a further video series, entitled “Perseverance”, while the most recent series, this time produced in conjunction with Harvard, focuses on empathy–all vital topics of conversation in an era of rampant negativity and cyber-bullying. With these videos, ClassDojo hopes to begin transitioning from simple communications app to full-scale distribution platform, using a freemium model similar to that of Slack or other enterprise-focused software. By packaging a variety of educational services into a single software bundle, developers believe they can reduce the cost of traditional educational services, as well as providing a vital new-media approach that will keep students, parents and teachers more closely connected. ClassDojo brings community, communication and a positive culture, all in one free download.

Brazil’s Central Bank Cuts Interest Rates Again

Brazil’s economy is heading in the right direction. First quarter GDP growth is on the plus side, and the central bank is cutting interest rates again. The central bank cut its benchmark rate to 10.25 percent. The Selic rate was 11.25%. The bank wants to continue to reduce the escalation in borrowing costs which started in October 2016. And the bank wants to help reduce inflation and get Brazil’s struggling economy back in the black again.

 

 

There are economic bright spots in the country. President Temer is pushing for new trade agreements with China, and the United States as well as with Britain. Exporting is one of the economic sectors hit hardest by the devastating recession that cost seven million Brazilian their jobs over the last four years. Most Brazilians are optimistic about what the government is trying to do, but there is still some serious mud in the political system.

 

 

Nonetheless, business leaders in cities around the country are finding ways to contribute to GDP growth. One of those business leaders, Flavio Maluf, the environmentalist and philanthropist from the state of Sao Paulo, is showing the country what it takes to beat the recession. Maluf’s company, Eucatex, is one of the country’s largest manufacturers of building materials. Eucatex has four domestic factories, three domestic offices and offices in other countries like the United States and Germany. All Eucatex facilities follow recycle, reuse, and reduce protocol, and the factories use renewable energy sources. Maluf is responsible for making his family-owned business one of the most environmentally friendly companies in the country.

 

 

The Flavio Maluf story is not one of those rich boys gets richer stories. Flavio has a working man’s mentality. He is an expert in marketing, and he has an engineering degree from New York University. Before Flavio became president of the company, he developed a successful marketing program for Eucatex. He is responsible for developing the Eucatex brands sold in home improvement stores like Home Depot. Today, thanks to Flavio, Eucatex ships floorboards, paint, varnishes, ceiling tiles, and other building materials to more than 30 countries. He is also responsible for starting eucalyptus tree farms so the company can replace the trees they use to make branded products.
