This Week I Learned - Week #228

This Week I Learned -

* Azure Media Redactor is a cloud video processing service which is capable of automatically detecting and blurring faces in your videos, for use in cases such as public safety and news media.

* Azure Application Insights provides search capabilities to query and get insights from your telemetry data.

* The ARM API deploys resources to Azure, but doesn’t deploy code onto those resources. For example you can use ARM to deploy a virtual machine with SQL Server already installed but you can’t use ARM to deploy a database from an SSDT DacPac....we need to use some other technology such as DSC or PowerShell to manage the deployments onto the infrastructure once it is deployed - Simple Talk

* The Freecharge site was launched on August 15, 2010.  Axis Bank has acquired Freecharge from its parent company Snapdeal for $60 million — a drop in the bucket compared to the $400-$450 million that the e-commerce company paid for it two years back, touted as the biggest M&A deal in the history of India’s startup ecosystem. The deal gives the private sector lender access to Freecharge’s claimed 52 million mobile wallet holders - Yourstory.in

* To save a web page as PDF using Chrome mobile browser, tap the three-dot More menu in the upper-right corner of the screen, select Share and check for a Print option there. When you are asked to select a printer, choose Save as PDF, tap Save and choose a place to store the resulting file.

Coblis, the Color Blindness Simulator web application can help make your images and diagrams friendly for the color-blind

* Sciatic nerve is the largest and longest nerve in the body. Many muscles of our thighs and legs are controlled by this nerve.

* Amazon Prime Video allows you to watch movies & videos on up to 3 devices at once

* You can think of the Chromecast as a web browser with a TV UI that you control with your smartphone. The Fire TV Stick is a device in itself. You can install hundreds of apps on its internal memory, and it even comes with its own Bluetooth remote. There’s no need for your phone to be around, just the TV and Amazon’s dongle. Both pull off the same basic tasks – playing your movies and TV shows from a variety of sources

YouTube.com/TV offers a more accessible mode that allows you to control the interface with your keyboard

* The regional-language trolling problem is amplified by the fact that India has more than 122 languages and 1,599 dialects. An overwhelming 234 million Indians access the internet every day in regional languages, compared to 175 million English users in 2016, according to a Google-KPMG report. To combat this, firms like Facebook have started employing native languages speakers to monitor content - The Times of India

Data Security Council of India (DSCI) is a premier industry body on data protection in India, setup by NASSCOM, committed to making cyberspace safe, secure and trusted by establishing best practices, standards and initiatives in cyber security and privacy.

* Only 30 categories of top VVIPs — ranging from the President to SPG protectees — are exempt from pre-embarkation security checks (PESC) at Indian airports. Lalu Prasad Yadav and wife Rabri Devi skipped pre-boarding security checks at Patna airport for eight years despite not being in any position on this list of 30 exempt categories - The Times of India

* "I now need to move forward, and return to an environment of respect, trust and empowerment, where I can take on new lofty challenges" - Vishal Sikka, CEO of Infosys after resigning. His exit wiped out $3.5 billion or 22,480 crore of investor wealth.

* "..immigrant associations in America, established ostensibly to celebrate their culture, are actually caste groups. TANA (Telugu Association of North America) is nothing but a Kamma caste organisation. There's another one, ATA, for Reddys. Some like the American Association of Telugu Brahmins (AATB) don't even hide behind "celebrating Telugu literature cultural", they are openly based on caste. When the right-wing Hindu American Foundation (HAF), an extremely wealthy and powerful organisation, threatened to sue the California Education Board if they didn't redact the references to Indian caste system in the state's school history textbooks (their claim was that their children would be taunted for it) it was the Dalit Freedom Network in America that fought to keep it in, because it is a fact of history" - Sujatha Gidla, author of Ants Among Elephants: An Untouchable Family and the Making of Modern Indiafirst Indian woman to be employed as a conductor with the New York City Subway
