Cant play both at the same time, How Yuzvendra Chahal prioritised cricket over chess – Hindustan Times

India legspinner Yuzvendra Chahal has revealed the difficulties he faced as a youngster in balancing chess and cricket and the circumstance that led to him picking up cricket as a career.

Chahal, before carving a career for India in cricket was a brilliant chess player, participating in Nationals and representing India at the World Youth Chess Championship. But as the ventured into cricket, Chahal struggled to strike a balance between the two sports and made up his mind to concentrate on one.

I played my first nationals of Chess in 1998 and at that time I was playing cricket as well. You cant play both sports at the same time. For Chess, you need 10 12 hours of training and then 6 8 hours for cricket was getting very difficult. So, when I came back from the World Cup, I told my father I will focus only on cricket. Chahal told S Badrinath on the show Mind Masters by MFORE on Star Sports.

Reports have surfaced that not finding sponsors somewhat played a role in Chahal leaving behind a career in chess. However, as Chahal has become an integral part of Indias limited-overs setup, the legspinner reckons there are certain similarities between cricket and chess believing patience plays a key role in both these sports.

In chess you require a lot of patience as every match is about 6 7 hours and youre playing sitting at one place without speaking much. Similarly, in cricket you sometimes bowl so well but dont get wickets. So, you have to be patient and keep it in your mind that you are bowling well and youll probably get wickets in the next spell, he mentioned.

An Introduction to Chess: More notes on castling – Stabroek News

Last week, we addressed the motions of castling on the Kingside and Queenside. Castling is a strange move, but not a complicated one. As mentioned last week, you cannot castle when you confront certain situations. This week, I will illustrate those situations through diagrams to give the chess beginner a better understanding of castling.

Castling Diagram 1

In Diagram 1, White is in check with the black Bishop. In this position, White can either block with his pawn, his Bishop, his Knight, or his Queen. He can also move his King to a White square. If he moves the King, he loses the right to castle. So, the most intelligent thing to do in this position is to block. Remember, it would be foolish to block with the Queen because the Queen is worth 10 pawns and the Bishop is worth 3 pawns.

Castling Diagram 2

In Diagram 2, the King has moved to evade the check. The problem with this move is that the King would not be allowed to castle. It was better to block the check.

Castling Diagram 3

In Diagram 3, White is unable to castle. White cannot castle when an opposing piece moves through or ends up on a square that is being attacked by an enemy piece. In this position the King cannot cross the line of the enemy Bishop.

Castling Diagram 4

Diagram 4 demonstrates how White can castle on the Queenside although Blacks Bishop is attacking the Rook. Remember, only the King is prohibited from crossing the line of fire, not the Rook. The way is cleared for the King to castle on the Queenside. However, the black King cannot castle on the Kingside because it would have to cross the f8-square controlled by the White Knight. But Black can castle Queenside if the player so chooses. The Rook can cross the b8-square which completes the castling move.

NSR Report: Cloud Computing via Satellite to Drive 52 Exabytes of Traffic by 2029 – GlobeNewswire

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., May 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NSRs Cloud Computing via Satellite report, released today, projects 52 Exabytes of Traffic by 2029, with players in the satellite and space industry contributing cumulative revenue of $16 B from 2019-2029. The market is largely satcom-centric, with a significant portion of the revenue flow going to service providers and satellite operators.

"The transformation brought about by the adoption of Cloud Computing and Big Data Analytics is only beginning to impact the satellite sector," states Shivaprakash Muruganandham, NSR Analyst and report author. 'It ranges from Cloud-hosted applications by end customers to Cloud storage/processing by geospatial analytics providers. For a growing number of satellite operators and service providers, partnering with big IT and Cloud players helps them drive increased bandwidth usage with existing customers.

The primary Cloud verticals, Maritime Offshore and Passenger Cruise, along with Aeronautical satcom, will generate more than $7B cumulatively over the 10-year forecast period. Additionally, Onshore Energy, Gov/Mil, and Retail & Banking satcom markets are set to expand their Cloud-first digitization strategies.

Surprisingly, Muruganandham adds the Earth Observation industry was found to trail behind in terms of raw data traffic downlinked to Cloud servers, while the downstream geospatial analytics segment shows strong signs of growth.

NSR recognizes that Cloud might not be a scalable cost for all, despite its tremendous value add. Still, newer applications such as the use of satellites for Cloud storage and compute capabilities are nascent markets set to grow strongly over the coming decade.

In this critical time, manycompanies have been recognizingthe benefits of remote work. Consequently, those companies will have to startrelying on the cloud to replace most of their physical infrastructure andeffecta seamless remote experience from home.

This, in turn, will create a plethora of opportunities fortechnology professionals to propel themselves intointo a new cloud career.

Broadus Palmer's head is necessarily in the clouds.

I recently connected withBroadus Palmer, founder and cloud career coach atLevel Up With Broadus, and here are the three biggest pieces of advice he offered about embarking ona cloud-computing career.

"Grant yourself an opportunity to understand what the cloud is and how it works," he recommends as a first step. "There are plenty of cloud service providers out there, but in the U.S., the big three are Amazon Webservices, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure."

Palmer duly encourages folks to "check out some of the best cloud training providers, such as Linux Academy and A Cloud Guru. This time should be spent understanding the major core services within a cloud service provider that you choose to learn about. Having this expertise will put you ahead for the next step."

As for that next step, Palmer reminds that, "The cloud is a vast industry filled with limitless opportunities in many roles that will need to be filled. After learning how the cloud works, its important to find a direction to try to focus on. Thegood news is, if you dont like a certain direction, you can always pivot and move."

Palmer elaborates that, "Some of the hottest careers in cloud now include cloud security engineer, DevOps engineer and cloud architect. These roles have been trending for a long time in this industry within no signs of slowing down. Once youve chosen a path, check out some of the tech companies in your area using Glassdoor or Indeed and figure out what skills they are asking anyone for that role to have. This will give you an idea of which hands-on skills you need to retrieve."

Finally, Palmer reinforces that, "Now this is the time when you need to have dedication, consistency and commitment. These threethings will help you make tremendous progress when it comes to getting the hands-on skills you need. Focus on how you can solve current problems with current trending tools within the industry."

He also urges that it's necessary at this stage to "put your war face on; not only will this get ugly, but you will become frustrated and sometimes feel defeated. That is OK, because every experience is a learning experience. What you can do is reach out to a cloud career coach who has been through the mud and understands what you need to do to transition. Projects and labs will also help you understand exactly what you are capable of in a test-production scenario. By always challenging yourself like this, you will be ready to steer the ship when the captain calls on you."

Palmer is sympathetic to the fact that, as he puts it, "Transitioning into this industry can feel overwhelming." Nevertheless, he maintains, "If you have the passion, hunger and patience along with the direction of a coach, you will do fine."

Above all, he enthuses, "Use this opportunity to propel yourself forward and reach those blessings that lie right around the corner for you."

Covid-19 has hastened cloud migration – but don’t move without a plan – Cloud Tech

The coronavirus pandemic has magnified the importance of cloud-based technologies in major, life-altering ways and ushered in a new paradigm. Before COVID-19, experts projected the worldwide public cloud services market would jump by 17% this year, reaching $266.4 million. Software as a service is the largest segment within that market, but the second-largest infrastructure as a service claims the fastest growth rate.

A number of factors are driving businesses to choose the cloud as the standard for applications, data, and storage. They migrate to gain flexible computing power, to lower the cost of backup/recovery, or to turn capital expenses into operational costs. Beyond any single benefit, however, companies migrate to facilitate organisational change in ways that only the cloud can offer.

Take artificial intelligence as just one example. Companies that have already implemented AI saw an uptick in revenue, and 44% experienced a reduction in costs. Executives across industries want (and need) to use this technology effectively, and thats possible from a technical and logistical standpoint only if the technology runs out of the cloud. To put it simply, the cloud is where the future happens, meaning companies either migrate or get left behind.

Unfortunately, knowing where to go rarely makes the journey easier. In terms of cloud migration challenges, spinning down a monolithic legacy system can be an exhausting undertaking like demolishing a building brick by brick. Moving around data and abandoning traditions also raises concerns about security and compliance. Plus, changing any kind of enterprise IT requires a massive retraining effort and necessitates interrupting the normal workflow for extended periods. Make no mistake: Cloud migration isnt easy, even if it makes IT easier over the long run.

When companies fail to create a cloud migration plan, they rarely make it to the cloud on time, under budget, or with the results they expected. Given the speed and scale of whats involved, migrations can derail in countless ways if theyre not carefully organized in advance.

Cloud networking/infrastructure setup seems simple at first, for instance, but then developers need to build guardrails for usage while also finding and closing any vulnerabilities hackers could exploit. Balancing accessibility and security involves an endless barrage of difficult choices that are better to plan for in advance rather than try to work through on the fly.

Another common cloud migration challenge happens when product teams maintaining the applications to be migrated arent directly involved in the migration. Because these product teams lack experience with the underlying architecture, theyre not prepared to properly manage the tools moving forward (even though they have that responsibility). In this way, companies must strike another balancing act between migration specialists and product teams, ensuring that both parties are integrally involved without processes becoming inefficient something that only advanced planning can achieve.

Several elements characterise effective migrations, such as self-service learning, teams working autonomously, showcasing best practices, and crowdsourced assistance with the organisation. Each one of those pillars is a major undertaking, which emphasises why deep, detailed plans are so important. Granted, cloud migration strategies take time to prepare and involve complicated, difficult choices, but the effort you put into planning before the migration proves its worth the minute things start moving.

As you start to plan for the challenges of moving to the cloud, make sure youre thinking through each issue individually and in-depth.

Realistically, planning a cloud migration may be as hard as executing the plan itself. Thats why many companies partner with migration specialists to ensure theyre considering every contingency and meeting every benchmark. Partners with a shared purpose and concrete aims applied consistently in the organisation go a long way to turn good intentions into tangible outcomes. The best advice for cloud migration really applies to any journey dont set out without a guide and a map.

Cloud computing transformation must be led by ministers and agency heads – The Strategist

National security agencies can be surprisingly risk-averse organisations and have been historically slow to adopt new technologies outside times of crisis.

Within these agencies, chief information and technology officers may be less effective champions of change, partly because they can be stuck making incremental adjustments within budgetary constraints and focused on the day-to-day demands of keeping existing systems running.

When it comes to cloud computing, this creates a problem. The cloud offers new technological capabilities, although its adoption by the national security community has so far been protracted and fragmented. Ministers and agency heads need to drive the transition to the cloud as a matter of sheer capability advantage for Australia.

Our new ASPI special report, National security agencies and the cloud: An urgent capability issue for Australia, released today, argues for rapid, large-scale investment in secure cloud infrastructure for Australias national security community, with the intelligence agencies an early focus. The report seeks to shift perceptions of new technology as capabilities, rather than as business enablers, and calls on agency executives to drive the required change.

In 2014, Australia announced the cloud first policy, which evolved into the secure cloud strategy. These were positive first steps, but the policies havent sufficiently managed the take-up of and spending on cloud services and infrastructure in the public sector.

Under existing policy, agencies are expected to develop their own cloud strategies and risk assessments. This siloed approach is unlikely to maximise the governments purchasing power or encourage agency cooperation in an area in which a critical mass of investment is likely to be necessary.

The policy also suggests public clouds as the preferred deployment model, but many global cloud providers are based offshore and public clouds involve organisations data and cloud applications being managed for them on providers systems alongside those of myriad other customers with which they have no working relationships.

So, when determining what type of cloud system to adopt, decision-makers have to seriously consider issues of data sovereignty, trust, risk and supply-chain resilience with providers. As an example, government research shows that 93% of Australians are concerned about organisations sending their personal information overseas. Reliance on undersea cables connecting to offshore servers may also leave core government services and systems vulnerable to sabotage and disruption unless the risks are assessed and mitigated.

In the world of intelligence and national security, public cloud solutions seem less viable. Agencies should consider a range of alternatives such as hybrid cloud, community cloud or private cloud to maintain the level of control over data and functionality they need. But choices that maximise capability outcomes dont include a set of separate agency clouds without interoperability as a defining design principle to maximise the power of the datasets that the Australian national security community holds.

Regardless of which provider agencies choose, the paradigm shift in computing has occurred. Many businesses and organisations know that the powerful processing, big-data analytics and versatile resource configurations that cloud systems provide are simply essential to their success. They have already shifted from traditional on-premises computing to on-demand cloud services or to private cloud systems that give them more control. The industry is also designing new applications and software that take advantage of the technical power of cloud infrastructure.

If change doesnt occur rapidly and comprehensively within Australian national security agencies, they will fall behind and be stuck with platforms that vendors only support as legacy activities (think Windows 7). Meanwhile, allies and adversaries will continue to take advantage of the new technology to scale up their operations and analysis and get the capability advantages from cloud systems.

US national security agencies already have at least five years lead time over their Australian partner agencies. Decisions in the US now are not about whether to adopt cloud infrastructure and functionality, but how best to orchestrate and manage what has become a reasonably crowded and chaotic multi-cloud environment.

A major investment in secure national cloud capabilities must be made by at least the intelligence organisations, with big defence and other less agile agencies following suit. Our report identifies four obstacles that agencies will need to overcome.

First, they havent planned or budgeted for a move like this. Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said he has already kicked in to raise the defence budget and is hesitant to increase government spending further.

Second, agencies usually function independently. Cloud infrastructure, however, will be most effective as a joint initiative, at least between the intelligence agencies and defence organisations. This will require massive organisational and cultural shifts to greater collaboration and interdependence. In addition, by leveraging the purchasing power across the national security community, Australia can get the best bang for its buck and share the responsibility for security.

Third, theres a lack of knowledge and skills in cloud computing in Australiapart of a broader shortage of skills in science, technology, engineering and maths. To be able to operate cloud infrastructure efficiently and effectively in the long term, agencies will need to be able to build and retain expertise in the area.

Last, establishing trust and assessing risk will be key issues. The number of providers that could work with the Australian national security community to build a cloud foundation is relatively limited. This includes global providers, as well as credible Australian cloud providers that have designed their approaches with security and sovereignty in mind.

To succeed, organisational and cultural changes to overcome these obstacles need to be driven by ministers and agency heads. Chief information and technology officers and security staff have important and useful internal roles to keep systems and services running and identify new risks. Security, however, is merely one important factor in the decision-making process. The capability benefits of cloud infrastructure and services that we all understand when looking at the worlds tech giants must weigh heavily in the decision-making.

This shift requires looking beyond current technical security standards and rules to achieve the capability benefit that cloud computing can bring to Australias national security.

Not acting wouldnt avoid risk; it would simply mean that the information advantage that comes from the most capable systems and analytical tools wouldnt be available to Australian national security agenciesand thats not the future we need.
