PubsSPs PubsSPs NIST uses three NIST Special Publication subseries to publish computer/cyber/information security and guidelines, recommendations and reference materials: SP 800, Computer Security (December 1990-present): NIST's primary mode of publishing computer/cyber/information security guidelines, recommendations and reference materials (SP 800s are also searchable in the NIST Library Catalog); SP 1800, NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guides (2015-present): A new subseries created to complement the SP 800s; targets specific cybersecurity challenges in the public and private sectors; practical, user-friendly guides to facilitate adoption of standards-based approaches to cybersecurity; SP 500, Computer Systems Technology (January 1977-present): A general IT subseries used more broadly by NIST's Information Technology Laboratory (ITL), this page lists selected SP 500s related to NIST's computer security efforts.

Beware of soapy frogs: Using IET (ISCSI Enterprise Target) for Windows Server Backup Windows Server Backup in win2k8 server is fantastic - it's a consistent, snapshot-based automatic backup system capable of full disaster recovery / bare metal restore. I'm not a huge fan of much of the way the Windows servers work, but the backup setup is fantastic. With one wee flaw... Manual backups may be made to a network share, or to a local volume then copied to a network share. Unfortunately, automatic scheduled backups require direct access to a drive, they won't work on a mounted NTFS volume or on a network share. I could run a FireWire 800 drive over cat5e to the near-site backup location, but that's surprisingly expensive to do, especially as I want redundant storage to protect against pesky HDD failures. The solution: Win2k8 has a built-in iSCSI initiator. Security notice It would be a very good idea to enable mutual authentication, but by time of writing I was unable to get it working. Configuring the iSCSI target First, install the ISCSI Enterprise Target software (IET): Beware of soapy frogs: Using IET (ISCSI Enterprise Target) for Windows Server Backup

Problems that occur when you have just installed a hard drive are almost always a simple matter of a bad or incorrectly connected cable, incorrect jumper settings, or some similar trivial problem. If a newly installed drive isn't recognized by the system, turn off the system. Check the cables make sure that they're aligned properly and seated completely and replace them if necessary. Once a hard drive is configured properly and recognized by the system, it generally continues working properly until it fails. Any News Is Bad News If a hard drive shows even the slightest sign that it has problems, immediately copy the data from that drive to another hard drive or optical disc and replace that drive. Isolating the problem ¶ When a functioning drive fails or begins returning read or write errors, there are many possible causes. 1. WHERE THERE'S LIFE THERE'S HOPE Never turn off the system until you have taken every possible step to recover data from a failing drive. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

Genomic Loopholes and Other Weapons - Issue 6: Secret Codes Back in 2000, before MRSA—Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus—had become a household word, Nobel Laureate Joshua Lederberg wrote in the journal Science that “the future of humanity and microbes [would] likely unfold as episodes of a suspense thriller that could be titled Our Wits Versus Their Genes.” Thirteen years later, it is “their genes” that seem to be winning out. In the United States alone, roughly 2 million people suffer from drug-resistant infections each year; according to the most recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report, about 23,000 of them die. While the microbes have cracked almost all of our codes—rapidly evolving around one drug after another—we have yet to fully crack many of theirs. Scientists have a growing understanding of the molecular wizardry by which bacteria develop resistance to antibiotics, but they have yet to circumvent it. Antibiotics are, by far, the greatest weapon we humans have had in this contest. Genomic Loopholes and Other Weapons - Issue 6: Secret Codes

The Wordle of this list! (Click image to enlarge) One of the most popular posts on Edudemic in 2010 was The 35 Best Web 2.0 Classroom Tools Chosen By You and I felt it might be time for an update to that list for 2011.

As we’ve said many times on this blog, digital healthcare innovations are all around, but very few people know about them. This database is an attempt to fix that. We’ve included hundreds of innovations that we’ve uncovered and that you’ve submitted. The current total number of innovations in the database is: All innovations are classified into one of five categories. To make your searching a little easier, each table is sortable by column and you can also use the search box to search for any term in any entry. The database is always growing. If you’d like to know when we make a significant update to the database, then sign up for our weekly newsletter. If you’d like to submit a new innovation to be included in the database, please use the submission forms on the bottom of the page.

Created in 1985 to showcase the applications of information technology in education, the BETT (British Educational Training and Technology Show) has progressively become one of the most important EdTech exhibitions by its scale. It has gathered 35,000 educators and professionals from the sector in ExCeL, London. In between two iterations of the show, I talked to several European EdTech leaders (representatives from FutureLearn, JISC, Open University, UCL Institute of Education, and so on) to get a “pulse” on the state of online learning in 2016. In this third part, we will cover the final four trends: the terminology “MOOC” is being phased out,the surge in certification,the diversification of activities tied to MOOCs, andonline learning and accessibility. Trend 6: The terminology of “MOOC” is confirmed to be being phased out. Many products/services could have been considered as MOOCs two years ago, and now are named differently Martin Hamilton (Futurist, Jisc) “You keep using that word.

The Huawei MediaPad M3 is like a louder, more affordable Apple iPad Mini 4, that runs Android. The stylish, aluminum-clad tablet bears a striking resemblance to the iPad Mini 4 in design, and its performance is just as powerful, however the Huawei tablet has better speakers and cheaper pricing -- for both Wi-Fi only and LTE models. The Wi-Fi only model will hit the US in December for $299. Sight and sound 8.4-inch screen2,560x1,600-pixel resolution IPS screen359 ppiHarman Kardon speakers Tablets are great for media consumption (aka watching hella amounts of Netflix), so it's no surprise that the very literally named MediaPad M3 is one of the best binge-watch-friendly models around. The speakers are surprisingly loud, crisp and clear; dialogue in movies was always at the forefront and vocals in music sounded appropriately accentuated. Supremely sleek Let's be real: all tablets kind of look the same and how one feels in your hands can many times be the deciding factor. Enlarge Image Huawei MediaPad M3 review - CNET
Conveniently situated in the heart of the Beijing Olympic Green, the China National Convention Center is right next to the China National Stadium, the National Aquatics Center, and the National Indoor Stadium. The CNCC complex consists of the Convention Center, the CNCC Grand Hotel, the InterContinental Hotel and two office buildings. The Center itself is 398m long, 148m wide, 42m high and has eight floors with two more in the basement and a shopping mall inside. The National Aquatics Center, better known as "The Water Cube", is one of the best venues of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. It was chosen through public appraisals as one of China's ten big new architecture views. Tech World 2015 Registration | May 28 Beijing, China
Las novedades que Lenovo presentó en la conferencia Tech World - Novedades tecnología Zapatos inteligentes que orientan a su dueño, relojes que proyectan pantallas táctiles o impresoras en 3D que pueden imprimir comida, son algunas de las sorpresas que la firma china Lenovo, líder mundial en venta de ordenadores, presenta estos días en su conferencia Tech World. El evento, que se clausura en el Centro Nacional de Convenciones de China y en el Cubo de Agua de la zona olímpica, es el primero con espíritu global que organiza la compañía en solitario, precisamente 10 años después de que la firma saltara a la fama por comprar la división de ordenadores de IBM. "Uniremos hardware, software y servicios para transformar la experiencia de los usuarios", señaló el presidente de Lenovo, Yang Yuanqing, en el ecuador de la conferencia, de tres días de duración y en la que también participaron líderes de firmas rivales -aunque a veces asociadas en sus proyectos- como Baidu o Microsoft.
