Spectre and Meltdown Explained, and a Proposed Counter Against Them

On January 15, 2018, 2:58 AM PST, Josh Fruhlinger wrote Spectre and Meltdown explained: What they are, how they work, what’s at risk . As threats, regarding these two risks, Spectre and Meltdown, Fruhlinger wrote, “In the first days of 2018, published research revealed that nearly ever computer chip manufactured in the last 20 years contains fundamental security flaws, with specific variations on those flaws being dubbed Spectre and Meltdown ” (Fruhlinger, Jan 15, 2018). Fruhlinger was stating this: despite the best known efforts Electrical Engineers and Computer Scientists exercised, computer chip technology dated 1998 AD - 2018 AD has experienced an error, design flaws, that led to known defects, Spectre and Meltdown, and these are potentially great failures.  Side-channel technology requires high grade technical research, and this can be because Spectre and Meltdown exist, so a layman would not have known it, 22 years ago. According to Josh Fruhlinger, speculative execution and cac

On the Secure Internet of Medical Things

The Internet and Telecom of Medical Things In the August 2020 Edition of Communications of the ACM (the Association for Computing Machinery), Chief Internet Evangelist at Google and 2012 AD to 2014 AD ACM president, Vinton G. Cerf, wrote On the Internet of Medical Things , a column regarding healthcare and the widespread availability of household Internet and Telecom technologies applicable to healthcare. Related to the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, Cerf wrote that he experienced an unsettling doctor’s call because Cerf’s goal, a doctor analyzing his health, was rejected, but the offered alternative, a video consultation, was inadequate. Cerf wrote, “This led to the natural conclusion that remote detection would be helpful in these conditions” (Cerf, Aug 2020, p. 5). Cerf was saying this: he wanted a solution to the COVID-19 virus, but he had not planned an immediate solution to this contagion passing from one entity to another, so he ought to discuss solutions to this problem.

How Control Theory Can Help Us Control COVID-19

On Spotify, listen to my related podcast: link   COVID-19 On 17 April, 2020, 5:00 AM Chicago, IL time, Greg Stewart, Klaske van Heusden, and Guy A. Dumont released the IEEE SPECTRUM article How Control Theory Can Help Us Control COVID-19 ( link ). Stewart, et. al. wrote, “As we write these words, several billion people, the majority of the world’s population, are confined to their homes or subject to physical-distancing policies in an attempt to contain on of the worst pandemics of modern times” (Stewart, Heusden, Dumont, 17 Apr, 2020). This is a reflection against the COVID-19 pandemic’s recorded measures. The Reproduction Number of COVID-19 Against other recent disease outbreaks, Stewart, et. al. wrote that the COVID-19 pandemic is unique: the reproduction number, or Ro (“R naught”), that is, the infection rate per infected person during infection. The Cost of Easing Social-Distancing Restrictions About easing social-distancing standardization, Stewart, et. al. wrote a commonly cited

COVID-19 Made Internet Access, Broadband and Hotspots an Educational Necessity

I am ready After a hiatus: with the readers, I am ready.  COVID-19 Made Internet Access, Broadband and Hotspots an Educational Necessity   On June 9, 2020, the IEEE Transmitter (Institute for Electricians and Electrical Engineers Transmitter) wrote COVID-19 Made Internet Access, Broadband and Hotspots an Educational Necessity . In this Transmitter article, the IEEE wrote that numerous students experienced academic difficulties because of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, causing widespread problems. The IEEE wrote, “while virtual learning helps reduce the risk of person-to-person transmission, schools were presented with a new problem: how to ensure every student has internet access so they could continue their education remotely” ( IEEE ). On the other hand, IEEE Senior Member David Witkowski is enthusiastic about a mobile generation of learners, but concerned regarding people enfortressed only to stay there and avoid public establishments. Witkowski is saying this: even on digital p

Brentwood, TN, 2020 Rentals

Since December 2019, the Williamson County government has obligated me: of me, a strange request has been asked, and I have been honor-bound, so I complied. Against my Computer Scientist personhood, repeated measures have tested my status, and I proved myself Spirited, each time: for example, my University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign enrollment , but because my original proof is a dark picture pool (1 Thess 5:5), I shall show you my enrollment status, the next upcoming day, and my Johns Hopkins University commitmen t (on the "Last Name," "First Name" box, I am a rostered person). For an outstanding Computer Science program, I chose UIUC, but JHU admitting me: this deserves an honorable mention.    As a result, my professional business was affected, but I have proven myself a capable Computer Scientist. My alma mater, Regent University, called my anti-COVID-19 involvement necessary: my alumni credential is only one part; but I have the means, my PC, and I can
