Shared storage for OpenStack based on DRBD-Mozilla Firefox Storage is a tricky part of the cloud environment. We want it to be fast, to be network-accessible and to be as reliable as possible. One way is to go to the shop and buy yourself a SAN solution from a prominent vendor for solid money. Another way is to take commodity hardware and use open source magic to turn it into distributed network storage. Guess what we did? We have several primary goals ahead. For now, we have decided on the DRBD driver for our storage. DRBD has been supported by the Linux kernel since version 2.6.33. The DRBD configuration file is /etc/drbd.conf, but usually it contains only 'include' statements. Other sections of the common configuration are usually left blank and can be redefined in per-resource configuration files. Name of the resource. Configuration Walkthrough We are creating a relatively simple configuration: one DRBD resource shared between two nodes. As we need write access to the resource on both nodes, we must make it 'primary' on both nodes.

Improving on Minard?!? Banque des Savoirs | Essonne Flooding Risk From Climate Change, Country by Country Continue reading the main story If global carbon emissions and sea levels are affected by climate change , about 2.6 percent of the global population (about 177 million people) will be living in a place at risk of regular flooding. Share of population exposed to coastal flooding Boxes represent coastal countries and are sized according to the number of people expected to be exposed to regular flooding by 2100. People exposed by continent More than a quarter of Vietnam’s residents live in areas likely to be subject to regular floods by the end of the century. These figures are the result of a new analysis of sea levels and flood risk around the world, conducted by Climate Central and based on more detailed sea-level data than has previously been available. Globally, eight of the 10 large countries most at risk are in Asia. Some countries in Asia may choose to emulate the Dutch system in coming decades, but some of the Asian nations are not wealthy and would struggle to do so.

How to Use FF Chartwell Primarily suitable for Adobe Creative Suite, FF Chartwell for print uses OpenType ligatures to transform strings of numbers automatically into charts. The data remains in a text box, allowing for easy updates and styling. It’s really simple to use; you just type a series of numbers like: ‘10+13+37+40’, turn on Stylistic Alternates or Stylistic Set 1 and a graph is automatically created. To help get you started using FF Chartwell we’ve created this video tutorial and here are some simple steps: ONE — Firstly always make sure the letter spacing is set to “0” (zero) TWO — Using the values 0-100, type the values, then use “+” to combine them into one chart. THREE — Want to bring a bit of color to your work? FOUR — Turn on Stylistic Alternates or Stylistic Set 1 and enjoy! To see the original data all you need to do is turn off Stylistic Set or Stylistic Alternates.

How to use cells and conditional formatting to make a map in Excel The Excel Charts Blog There are several objects in Excel you can make a map with. If you want to use shapes, you can follow my tutorial. You can also use a scatter plot. The map above uses cells and conditional formatting. So, here is how to do it (this example used population data): Get a table from the US Census Bureau with latitude, longitude and population data by county.In a new sheet, calculate longitude intervals and use them as column headers (I’m using a 0.25 interval: lower means more resolution but more columns);Calculate latitude intervals and use them as row headers;With the SUMPRODUCT() function calculate total population, total area and density for each latitude and longitude class;Set column width to 5 or 6 pixels and do the same with row height;Select the entire table and add conditional formatting as you like; Since you can’t add visible text to such small cells, you can merge them and add titles, legend, source, etc.

How what you eat demands more water than you think it does By Kyle Kim, Jon Schleuss and Priya Krishnakumar April 7, 2015 California's crippling drought has prompted conservation efforts, such as replacing grass lawns and minding how long you leave the tap water running. But what about the food on your plate? Agriculture uses 80% of California's water supply, and producing what you eat can require a surprising amount of water. The number next to the plate below represents the direct and indirect amount of water required to produce your food plate, based on U.S. data from the Water Footprint Network. Give me a random plate 1,007 gallons (Commercial U.S. average) Beef: ounces 850.2 gallons Wheat bread: ounces 86.6 gallons Cauliflower: ounces 19.5 gallons Pineapple juice: ounces 50.9 gallons Fruits and vegetables: 19.5 gallons Drink: 50.9 gallons Starch: 86.6 gallons Protein: 850.2 gallons How much water is used to produce your food? Fruits and vegetables Drink Starch Protein For the record: The value for soy milk has been corrected. How the foods compare: M.M. L.A.
