A God of Forces: JEDI, Weighed Against Ending its Cloud Project because of Amazon

During early Eastern Standard Time hours, today, the Wall Street Journal’s John D. McKinnon wrote Pentagon Weighs Ending JEDI Cloud Project Amid Amazon Court Fight ( link ). McKinnon wrote on Washington, District of Columbia soil, Pentagon professionals considered ending the JEDI cloud-computing project (in Software Engineering lingo, it is really a program, the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure): it is because Amazon.com Inc. has pushed litigation against it, and lawmakers are increasing their unfriendliness toward it. According to McKinnon, in 2019, Microsoft Corp. received the JEDI contract award, but Amazon contested this on court soil since then. On the Wall Street Journal, McKinnon continued: in April 2021, a federal judge refused the Pentagon’s demand to dismiss Amazon’s case, but the legal reasoning is unclear ( link ). Following this, Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks stated the Pentagon would review JEDI, wrote McKinnon. McKinnon stated Hicks’ statement was on Ap

Donald Trump's YouTube Ban: Live with It

Today, on the Wall Street Journal, Tripp Mickle wrote Trump Is Still Banned on YouTube. Now the Clock Is Ticking . But Mickle wrote, “With Donald Trump’s return to Facebook in limbo, YouTube has emerged as the former president’s best chance to return to social media in the near future” ( link ). Mickle believes former United States president Donald Trump has a clear path back to the spotlight. But why? Trump Incited the January 6, 2021 Insurrection Even though millions of Americans believe otherwise, approximately 100 million ( link ), I shall contend with this: because of Donald Trump, the insurrection. On January 6, 2021, I watched it transpire from my hotel room in Brentwood, Tennessee: it was an atrocity. President Trump goaded his crowd of supporters over and again, but he was not alone. He repeatedly told his audience to fight. In America, the English word, fight, means the same thing it does in other parts of the world where English is spoken: it is a serious word that is relate

Changing Pace: Pursuing a 2nd Bachelor's Degree

In higher education, nothing sets the standard for entry level jobs like a Bachelor's degree. Learners often seek an Associate's degree, according to the NCES (National Center for Education Statistics), 49 percent of the United States population ( link ). But they also often progress to a Bachelor's level degree, us being 39 percent of the United States population according to NCES. Thus, there is a 10 percent difference in population regarding who has an Associate's degree versus who has a Bachelor's degree. Even greater, the NCES reported 9 percent of the United States population has a Master's or Doctorate degree: I am working toward a Master's degree. But I recently decided to try for something I wanted, years ago: a 2nd Bachelor's degree. Let me explain. Standards Are High In my current university, the Johns Hopkins University, the standard is raised high: basically, I need a B- or better for every class (I can earn a degree with 1 C-range grade, bu

On Tech Industry Divorces: How They Should Not Have Happened and What Could Have Been

On the Wall Street Journal, today, Paul Ziobro, updated an article, Bill and Melinda Gates to Divorce After 27 Years . Ziobro headlined his article this way: Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bills Gates and his wife, Melinda Gates, who is co-chair of their philanthropic foundation, are ending their 27-year marriage, according to a statement posted on both their verified Twitter accounts ( link ) pic.twitter.com/fCVHDlZbvq — Melinda French Gates (@melindagates) May 3, 2021 pic.twitter.com/padmHSgWGc — Bill Gates (@BillGates) May 3, 2021 Divorce is Often Happening in the Tech Industry’s Leadership Furthermore, Ziobro mentioned the official divorce petition was filed by this couple on May 3, 2021 in King County Superior Court within Washington state (Ziobro, 2021). They have some asset separation agreement with their division in mind. Next, Bill and Melinda Gates are parents to 3 children. Also, this couple formed the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, together: it is a billion-dolla

Sights on New Horizons: JHU, Independent Contracting, and Upcoming Android Apps

  In recent months, I have taken a break from Johns Hopkins University classes. Due to extenuating circumstances, I experienced unemployment. From 2 courses, it resulted in my withdrawals: 605.621 and 605.681 ( link ). As a result, I became an independent contractor. At this time, I am a Doordasher, and I am an Uber Driver. Although I can expect enough income to get by, I need my Software Engineering skills sharp. After a month of struggling, I am resuming technology R&D preparations.  In the next few months, I shall develop some Android technologies utilizing C++, Java, Python, and JavaScript. These technologies shall vary from Computer Vision with your Smart phone to calculators that determine Physics formulas, Chemistry formulas, Oceanography patterns. These shall be uploaded to the Play Store: with the free version, basic simplifications shall be provided. For explanations, you may give a small fee, and you shall receive robust features. And let us face the demons on the Play S

The Economics of Autonomy

In ancient legend, there is a Creation story: in contemporary times, it is known as the first book of Moses called the book of Genesis. When God IS creating the world, Genesis (KJV) states, “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light” (Genesis 1:3). According to legend, the 1st great Prophet, named Isaiah, told his faith to his friends, his people, and his enemies. Isaiah wrote, “Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation” (Isaiah 12:2) A man called the Christ was crucified, then according to Roman Empire record, died, but according to Christian legend, rose again. In Christian tradition, Jesus the Christ stated Christians should conclude our prayers to God, our Father, this way: “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matthew 6:13). Following Jesus of Nazareth, a New Testament writer,

Regarding Big Data, Ease of Use Remains a Huge Problem

For Big Medical Data, I am trying Deeplearning4j. According to edureka ( link ), this is a Java solution. Further, with the JVM (Java Virtual Machine: link ) language, this is compatible; It being open-source shall suit the cost efforts of my 1st economic robot project: collecting human anatomy data. At this time: from my Johns Hopkins University ( link ) Spring 2021 term classes, I have withdrawn. But I shall return Spring 2022. And in Enterprise and Web Development circumstances (just click on this link: link ; press ctrl+f and enter ‘Enterprise and Web Computing’), this language is a good choice because a 600-level course covers Big Data with Hadoop ( link ). In my Java background, I have several GitHub repositories ( link ), I studied a little graduate-level Java (JHU: Swing, Junit, the basics), and I studied Data Structures & Algorithms and Intermediate Programming in Java (Regent University, class of ‘18). But in this case, DeepLearning4j does not provide a simple example: se

A New Program: Economic Assistant Robots

Tonight, March the 25th, 2021, I am announcing to my audience the start of a new program: assistant robot technologies. For generations, emergency medical services have cost outrageous prices, but alternatives do not exist. But poor communities have not been afforded opportunities to supply health insurance services to poor friends or poor families. In 2021, this is inexcusable, and it cannot be defended. For in contemporary society, the so-called dog-eat-dog mentality allows convenient wrongs. The hungry captain, Tom Dudley, could say he needed to drink his ship cabin boy, Richard Parker’s blood to survive ( link ). But more cogent: he did not say his poor planning should have cost him his body, and his life. Organizations, today, are changing. Consider Amazon and Tesla. Amazon, who recently displayed her founder, Preston a.k.a. Jeff, Bezos, having retired ( link ) under convenient circumstances ( link ) against consumers and workers. Also, Tesla was recently in the news and her CEO,

Is the Police Using AI a Good Thing? Without preferences, perhaps it is.

On the Wall Street Journal, a video was posted titled Police Unlock AI’s Potential to Montior, Surveil and Solve Crimes ( link ). In New Orleans, appropriate use is the official consensus of the police force. But against the New Orleanian police is the local black or African American community’s focus on politics: previously open conversations about important city events and plans have naturally become more private, but less accessible. Trust Shall Forgo Favoritism Against critics, this live and active system is encouraging the development of circles of trust. And of the liberal, free and open society, this is the needed compromise: where people mistrust AI, the fundamental trust issue seems to be computer information technology taking preference data, and mistreating people. This has evidence when the New Orleanian African American woman on film stated the disproportionate mistreatment New Orleanian police place on New Orleanian black or African American people is infamous: from s

On Objectivity and Subjectivity: Can Computer Science Become a Hard Science?

On Twitter, yesterday, the President of the United States, Joe Biden, stated a comment regarding a bacteria virus: it is the 1 many are not accustomed to, or feel thrilled with which to share space, COVID-19. But it has caused many responses. And I shall share my response, here. President Biden stated the following: Words have consequences. It’s called the coronavirus. Full stop. — President Biden (@POTUS) March 19, 2021 Remembering its Origins with Fairness This may seem strange and even cryptic to readers because it is. The coronavirus is not the major problem: people forgo death because of coronavirus like HIV (human immunodeficiency virus). Common knowledge is this virus, SARS-COVID-2 (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2), originated in Wuhan China. But when coronavirus activates and becomes COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019), then it is deadly. On HopkinsMedicine.org, Dr. Stuart Ray stated alarming news. Ray said, “New variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus are dete

Utilizing Media: A Response to Deepfakes

  Of the ACM (the Association for Computing Machinery), a magazine called Communication of the ACM's edition releases 1 month before its stated release month. In the latest edition, regarding March 2021, of Communications of the ACM , Column Editor, Susan J. Winter wrote Computing Ethics: What To Do About Deepfakes . Regarding Winter’s desire to halt or hinder illegal or unethical deepfakes, a video technology like wearing a full body masking suit, Winter wrote, “Here are three areas where technical experts can make positive contributions to the development of synthetic media technologies: education and media literacy, subject defense, and verification” (Winter, March, 2021). Winter was saying actions such as teaching and having disruptive technology knowledge, researching professionally, and proving concepts are parts of deepfake experts’ calculus. But this much work specializes such that entry level, junior, work will probably be offered to overqualified professionals. Technic

Of Zero Trust, the Restrictive Drudgery

In recent years, Moore’s Law has begun reaching its limits, and these limits are the sizes of computer hardware. As a history review: when computers were 1st designed, they used vacuum tubes. Through a vacuum tube, this involved an airless vacuum tube meaning ‘0,’ ‘off,’ or air flowing meaning ‘1,’ ‘on.’ In contemporary phones, tablets, and computers, electricity performs this same ‘off’ or ‘on’ task; and with more electric computation devices, but also efficient circuity (electronics components and computation pathways), the more electric computation devices we have, the greater the possible computations. But in size: of the vacuum tube concepts, our common electric versions are reaching the atom’s scale. This is ~1.8E-10: of an approximate average human, it is ~0.00000018% our height. Against Quantum Computing, the basic communication, very much discussed, already, we can discuss another important subject: cyber security. In professional and academic circles, cyber security is not b
