Council Post: 14 Project Management Tips For New Tech Leaders

Automation can be a project manager's best friend. Assigning tasks priority levels can also be a big help.

However, if your organization is having a bit of trouble, professional services can be a difference-maker. #projectmanagement

While a new tech leader can use trial and error to eventually pin down the right project management strategies for their organization, a faster path would be to turn to experienced tech leaders for their insights.

Washing your jeans too much might pose risks to the environment

A recent environmental science study found that the tiny bits of denim lost in the washer could be adding to pollution levels. The impact on the environment at the moment though is unknown. #Environmentalscience

Jeans shed thousands of denim fibers in every wash. Those fibers, and the chemicals used to treat them, now are showing up in even the Arctic Ocean.

Did you know beavers actually have a lot to do with environmental protection? Scientists are examining the role they play in preserving the ecosystem. Take a look at this article to learn more about beavers. #EnvironmentalScience #Nature

Research shows that healthy streams promote aquatic life and nurture surrounding lands. The research of Benjamin Dittbrenner, an associate professor in the Marine and Environmental Sciences department, provides clues to how beaver ecosystems and wetlands fit into that equation—and contribute to wi...

Security Think Tank: No secret sauce for edge security, just good practice

To minimize the likelihood of a security breach, data should be secured wherever it is stored, processed and transmitted. Identity and access management is integral to preventing compromises in an internet-facing system Depending on where you're located, governments have legislation and regulation about where data is processed and how it's transmitted. Security professionals need to ensure that setups are safe and secure, but follow regulations at the same time. Read about how edge computing might be the answer.

#cybersecurity

That datacentre security is a complex subject is not in doubt, and given the trend to move beyond centralised datacentres to distributed environments, this is not going to change. How can security professionals ensure such setups are just as secure as the traditional centralised model?

The American Journal of Environmental Engineering recently published new research about water pollution. Environmental degradation due to economic activity is a large issue in the megacities of the global South. This study measured the water quality of the canals in Dhaka City, Bangladesh by collecting samples from 17 water canals. In most of the samples, there were many hazardous materials. Heavy metals from in the aquatic environment were concerning and can cause several severe human diseases. Take a look at the severity of the water contamination issue in the research linked here:

For the last few years, the amount of synthetic microfiber shed into the waterways has been concerning. This synthetic microfiber comes from the laundry cycles, and every one releases invisible, plastic fibers that accumulate in large amounts. As a consequence, they affect aquatic habitats and food systems all over the world. Researchers are trying to determine how these plastics affect our bodies. Read about the dangers of the microfiber accumulations. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/09/200916154851.htm

New environmental engineering models could be a difference-maker going forward to help cities, businesses, and residents who live near the coasts during storms. The new models should be able to predict storm surges to large-scale climate variability. #Versar #enviornmentalengineering

Storm surges sometimes can increase coastal sea levels 10 feet or more, jeopardizing communities and businesses along the water, but new research shows there may be a way to predict periods when it's more likely that such events occur. Researchers have developed models to predict extreme changes in....

The hybrid cloud is a blend of on-premises infrastructure combined with cloud-hosted infrastructure, and though this type of infrastructure is becoming very popular, it is very important that popular security measures are put in place to keep organization data secure.

Organizations rushing to adopt hosted cloud infrastructure alongside on-premises systems might not fully understand or address potential security threats.

Effects of nutrient pollution in marine ecosystems are compounded by human activity

Dumped wastewater or run-off from agricultural land can cause an excessive build up of nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus in coastal marine ecosystems, the overabundance of which creates a boom in algal blooms, depleting oxygen in the water, and ultimately killing marine life. However, there are a number of steps that concerned people and organizations can take to slow this process:

Excessive nutrients, such as nitrogen and phosphorus, have devastating effects on coastal marine ecosystems by causing algal blooms that deplete oxygen in the water, killing marine life. Such nutrients can enter the sea in wastewater or run-off from agricultural land. However, a new review in open-a...
