Riise pondering return to Norway

first_img Press Association John Arne Riise’s Fulham career could soon be over, with the left-back revealing it may be time to return to his native Norway. Having coming through the youth ranks at Aalesund, the 33-year-old played for Monaco, Liverpool and Roma before joining the Whites in 2011. Riise was initially a first-team regular under Martin Jol, but has fallen out of favour and only appeared twice in the Premier League for Fulham this term. center_img A January move to join up with his brother Bjorn Helge at Lillestrom has been mooted and, with his contract up at the end of the season, the full-back concedes he could soon leave Craven Cottage. “I have lived abroad for almost half my life,” Riise told TV2. “The time may be ripe to move home in the new year. “It would be fun to end my career in Lillestrom with my brother, but I have not taken any decision on what to do yet. I feel at least I can play in four or five years.” last_img read more

Why and How Netflix Adopted NoSQL Databases

first_imgNetflix Director of Cloud and Systems Infrastructure Yury Izrailevsky explains how and why Netflix migrated some of its systems to NoSQL. “In the distributed world governed by Eric Brewer’s CAP theorem , high availability (a.k.a. better customer experience) usually trumps strong consistency,” he writes. ” There is little room for vertical scalability or single points of failure.”Netflix uses three NoSQL tools: SimpleDB, HBase and Cassandra. “The reason why we use multiple NoSQL solutions is because each one is best suited for a specific set of use cases,” Izrailevsky writes. He writes that the learning curve has been steep and re-architecting the company’s systems has been difficult but “the scalability, availability and performance advantages of the NoSQL persistence model are evident and are paying for themselves already, and will be central to our long-term cloud strategy.”SimpleDBIt’s nice to see some real-world use of SimpleDB. In Izrailevsky’s words:Amazon SimpleDB was a natural choice for a number of our use cases as we moved into AWS cloud. SimpleDB is highly durable, with writes automatically replicated across availability zones within a region. It also features some really handy query and data format features beyond a simple key/value interface, such as multiple attributes per row key, batch operations, consistent reads, etc.Netflix’s Siddharth “Sid” Anand published a white paper on the company’s use of SimpleDB, as well as a blog post on the subject.HBaseNetflix uses HBase because it’s deeply integrated with Hadoop. Izrailevsky writes that the biggest advantage in using HBase is the ability to “combine real-time HBase queries with batch map-reduce Hadoop jobs, using HDFS as a shared storage platform.” He notes, however, that with HBase the company does have to sacrifise some availability for consistency.CassandraNetflix uses Cassandra for its scalability and lack of single points of failure and for cross-regional deployments. ” In effect, a single global Cassandra cluster can simultaneously service applications and asynchronously replicate data across multiple geographic locations.”Izrailevsky writes:Unlike a distributed database solution using e.g. MySQL or even SimpleDB, Cassandra (like HBase) can scale horizontally and dynamically by adding more servers, without the need to re-shard – or reboot, for that matter. In fact, Cassandra seeks to avoid vertical scalability limits and bottlenecks of any sort: there are no dedicated name nodes (all cluster nodes can serve as such), no practical architectural limitations on data sizes, row/column counts, etc.He also makes special mention of Cassandra’s data model, which offers flexible model representations beyond the typical key-value lookup model.MoreIf you crave more information about Netflix and NoSQL, check out Netflix Cloud Architect Adrian Cockcroft’s series of blog posts on NoSQL and Anand ‘s blog.You might also be interested in learning how Twitter uses NoSQL.Also, this talk covers when you shouldn’t use a non-relational database.

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Chelsea assistant coach Cudicini pleased for Morata after FA Cup braceby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea assistant coach Carlo Cudicini was full of praise for Alvaro Morata after their 2-0 FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest.Morata scored twice as FA Cup holders Chelsea advanced with a 2-0 third-round win over Forest at Stamford Bridge.”I think Alvaro played an important part in today’s performance, he was very good in terms of working for the team, offensively but mainly defensively,” said Cudicini. “It was very important for him to score two goals which can only be good for his confidence. We are all pleased with his performance but we were even when he didn’t score in previous games so hopefully it will be good for his morale that he scored, and hopefully he will be more free in his mind.”Gianfranco Zola mentioned in the press conference before the match that for a striker it’s difficult when you go through a spell when you don’t score many goals, so his body language was a bit down, but in training he’s working very hard and we all knew that sooner or later he would be able to turn the corner and start scoring goals. Thankfully he did it today, it was very important because we really care about this competition and we want to do well.” last_img read more

StarStudded Animal Lovers

first_imgSome celebrities love the limelight, some eschew it at all costs and some channel it toward the greater good. For celebs that choose the latter, their big hearts and big presence help preserve the lives of innocent animals across the globe.The thrills and frills of the red carpet are nothing compared to the behind the scenes acts of kindness exhibited by Hollywood A-listers and these three star-studded personalities put their notoriety to work as advocates for wildlife and humanity. You don’t have to be celebrity to make a difference; get inspired by these causes and learn how you can help.Marine Life PreservationWhales, dolphins and seals hold a special place in Hayden Panettiere’s heart. An avid advocate for marine life, the “Nashville” star spends her time off the set putting an end to the senseless slaughter of dolphins, whales and seals. The actress joined forces with Jeff Pantukhoff, founder of the Whaleman Foundation, as the international spokesperson for fair treatment of marine life. More than just the face of the cause, the starlet and five other advocates ventured to Japan to boycott the annual six-month dolphin killing spree that takes place in Taiji, Japan. In support of the “Save the Taiji Dolphin Campaign,” the group paddled on surf boards into Taiji’s notorious dolphin killing cove in a peaceful demonstration against the annual massacre which claims more than 20,000 dolphins and porpoises each year. The emotional journey was captured in “The Cove,” which won the 2009 Oscar for Best Feature Documentary.In continued support of the cause, the actress also started her own online fundraiser called “Panettiere Closet,” which allows fans and animal lovers to purchase clothing items from the star’s wardrobe with proceeds going toward saving marine life.Wildlife ConservancyKristin Bauer, of HBO hit series True Blood and professional athlete Yao Ming stand up against illegal poaching of Africa’s gentle wildlife giants. Each year, thousands of rhinoceroses and elephants are poached in Africa, causing the animals’ populations to dwindle at an alarming rate. Hunters turn their killings into profits by selling and transporting the tusks and horns to China. From there, the ivory is turned into jewelry, religious figurines and other trinkets. Greed drives illegal poachers to turn ruthless in their quest for tusks and horns. With China’s growing economy, the demand of ivory and rhino horn is booming.In an effort to reduce the demand and stop the killings, the African Wildlife Foundation’s “SAY NO Campaign” aims to open consumers’ eyes to the realities of their buying habits and how the consumer interest in ivory is directly connected to the brutal poaching of Africa’s majestic wildlife. As active supporters, Bauer and Ming work hand in hand with the AWF to spread the word across China and conserve the lives of elephants and rhinos.Humane Farming“Clueless” star Alicia Silverstone clues us in to the horror’s of farm cruelty as the spokesperson for Farm Sanctuary’s Compassionate Communities Campaign. The long-time vegetarian and author of “The Kind Diet” advocates for humane treatment of animals by educating the public on the benefits of choosing a vegan/vegetarian lifestyle. The campaign, created by Farm Sanctuary, promotes vegetarianism as way to encourage people to go vegan, go vegetarian, or reduce their meat consumption. Silverstone acts as a driving force encouraging animal lovers to take actionable steps including leafleting, distributing vegetarian literature, and sharing the websites informational video, to spare animals a lifetime of unimaginable suffering.last_img read more
