Parts of a Network You Should Know About
If you’re running infrastructure and applications on AWS then you will encounter all of these things. They’re not the only parts of a network setup but they are, in my experience, the most important ones.

How to Raise Eastern Swallowtail Butterflies at Home – texasbutterflyranch
Monarch butterflies get all the press, but the Eastern or Black Swallowtail, Papillio polyxenes, a large blue, black and gold and cream-specked beauty, flies in our neck of the world from April through November.   The Texas native provides lots of action in the garden when Monarchs are elsewhere.

ozarkedgewildflowers.com | Native wildflowers found at the edge of the Arkansas Ozarks
I’m an amateur wildflower and native plant enthusiast. I have property in Northeast Arkansas at the edge of the Ozark mountains. There is a rich diversity of native plant life here. My goal is to find and identify the native wildflowers and document them.  This passion is in addition to my more than full-time job, my family, dog and horses! So, progress on this site will definitely come in fits and starts. But, keep checking in!

Finally, Evidence That Diversity Improves Financial Performance
When managers and scholars talk about diversity’s impact on organizations and teams, they’re usually referring to the effects on collective accuracy and objectivity, analytical thinking, and innovativeness. On “harder” measures of financial performance, researchers have struggled to establish a causal relationship with diversity—particularly when studying large companies, where decision rights and incentives can be murky, and the effects of any given choice on, say, profits or market share can b...

Ecologists Have this Simple Request to Homeowners—Plant Native | At the Smithsonian | Smithsonian
A newly released survey of Carolina chickadee populations in the Washington, D.C., metro area shows that even a relatively small proportion of nonnative plants can make a habitat unsustainable for native bird species. The study, published last week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, is the first to examine the three-way interaction between plants, arthropods that eat those plants, and insectivorous birds that rely on caterpillars, spiders and other arthropods as food during the ...

Tailwind CSS - A Utility-First CSS Framework for Rapid UI Development
Tailwind is a utility-first CSS framework for rapidly building custom user interfaces.

Tailwind is different from frameworks like Bootstrap, Foundation, or Bulma in that it's not a UI kit.

It doesn't have a default theme, and there are no built-in UI components.

On the flip side, it also has no opinion about how your site should look and doesn't impose design decisions that you have to fight to undo.

If you're looking for a framework that comes with a menu of predesigned widgets to build your site with, Tailwind might not be the right framework for you.

But if you want a huge head start implementing a custom design with its own identity, Tailwind might be just what you're looking for.

Python Mock Gotchas - Alex Marandon
Mock is a Python mocking and testing library. It has become a de facto standard and is now included in the Python standard library.

Lately I’ve had the chance to work on a fairly large code base built upon a service-oriented architecture. In order to test each service in isolation, we make extensive use of Mock to simulate services that the code under test depends on.

During this process, we noticed that each member our team seemed to be hitting the same pitfalls, which I’m going to present in...

The Velvet Revolution of Claude Debussy | The New Yorker
Claude Debussy died a century ago, but his music has not grown old. Bound only lightly to the past, it floats in time. As it coalesces, bar by bar, it appears to be improvising itself into being—which is the effect Debussy wanted. After a rehearsal of his orchestral suite “Images,” he said, with satisfaction, “This has the air of not having been written down.” In a conversation with one of his former teachers, he declared, “There is no theory. You merely have to listen. Pleasure is the law.”

Architecture of the Hyperledger Blockchain Fabric
A blockchain is best understood in the model of state-machine replication [8], where a
service maintains some state and clients invoke operations that transform the state and generate outputs.
A blockchain emulates a “trusted” computing service through a distributed protocol, run by nodes connected
over the Internet. The service represents or creates an asset, in which all nodes have some stake.
The nodes share the common goal of running the service but do not necessarily trust each other for

In a previous article we discussed the PostgreSQL serial pseudo-type, which is useful for populating synthetic key values with incrementing integers. We saw that employing the serial data type keyword in a table data definition language (DDL) statement is implemented as an integer type column declaration that is populated, upon a database insert, with a default value derived from a simple function call. This automated behavior of invoking functional code as part of the integral response to data ...
