Abstract

Network virtualization is becoming increasingly significant as other forms of virtualization constantly evolve. The cost of deploying experimental network topologies, the strict enterprise traffic isolation requirements as well as the increasing processing power requirements for virtualized servers make virtualization a key factor in both the research sector as well as the industry, the enterprise network and the datacenter.

The definition of network virtualization as well as its manifestations vary widely and depend on the requirements of the environment in which it is deployed. This works sets the foundation towards a network virtualization framework based on a flow-based controlled network protocol like Openflow.

Abstract

Så småningom, har nätverk virtualization blivit signifikant. Hög kostnaden för att utveckla experimentella nätverk topologier, noggranna kraven för en effektiv trafik isolering samt ökande centralenhets krav för virtuella servrar har gjort nätverk virtualization en viktik faktor i båda forskning och företag.

Definitionen av nätverk virtualization samt dess manifestationer beror på miljön som den utvecklas. Den här arbeten försöker att ställa grundvalarna för ett nätverk virtualization framework baserat på ett flow-baserat protokoll som Openflow. Vi beskriver…...

Things They Carried

...Tim O'Brien does a fantastic job of blurring the lines of what is true and what is fiction in The Things They Carried. In fact, he often points out that he has made entire stories up, after the fact. He defends his decisions by proposing that what he has done is, in fact, not lie, but rather tell a story-truth. He argues that his reason for doing this is to bring the story to life more than it could live through the happening-truth. 'I want you to feel what I felt. I want you to know why story-truth is truer sometimes than happening-truth' (O'Brien, 183). O'Brien believes that, when accompanied by vivid details which essentially make the reader view the scene as a dream, story-truths can carry greater emotional truths than ever possible to be achieved through actual, happening-truths. With this, he shows, contrary to belief, how story-truths are often truer than happening-truths, and demonstrates this through the addition of often graphic details. Happening-truth encompasses actual events that take place. However true these stories may be, they are often times viewed as unreal simply because they have no details to back them up. The entire shit field scene that was put into this book, for example, was turned from a happening-truth into a story-truth because the original version was not believable. The reader can see this through O'Brien describing the letters that he received from Norman Bowker. Norman writes to Tim, telling him that he should write about the event. 'What...

...the universe has a purpose (telos) just like a watch has a purpose (to tell time). For example, the purpose of a human heart is to pump blood. [3] The Argument from Design Premise 1.If an object has a design then it must have a designer. (A watch, for example, could not have come into existence without a designer.) Premise 2. Nature has a design. (For example, the human heart has a specific design and function.) Conclusion 1.Therefore nature has a designer. Conclusion 2.The designer of nature is God. We can walk through these premises. Premise One is the major premise of the argument. It instructs us to look at something that is unknown to us and determine if there is any kind of “design” in that thing. Paley’s main example is a watch. We all recognize that the gears of a watch are designed to turn hands in order that we know what time it is. But the premise asserts something very strong at this point: It says that any object that has design must have a designer. Premise Two of the argument claims that nature has a design. One supporting example would be the organs of the human body. The human eye has a clear purpose: to allow the body to see. For all (or nearly all) of the organs of the human body we can give a similar explanation. The second premise also asserts that nature as a whole has a design. This is a bit harder to prove than each organ having a function. But think of the oxygenation cycle. Plants breathe in......

...Each event in my life has shaped me to be who I am now I suppose! Of all things, my first event, being born probably shaped me the most, literally! In reality though, being born in 1996 means I am the youngest of my family of eight people. I definitely have earned my sociological youngest child traits by growing up with everyone, and my only child traits of being the only child living in my house for the past three years. These were pretty much ascribed status and event of my life. Starting kindergarten is the next event on my timeline. I put kindergarten on here because it was a whole new atmosphere for me. I was mostly only used to being around people older than me. I never attended much daycare, maybe once or twice a week. I never went to preschool, and I only knew a few kids there. I remember being excited and nervous. I was pretty shy the first few hours! I met my best friend on that first day of school, although I didn’t know it until a few days later that we would be best friends! At first I hated her because I thought she was stealing my best friend neighbor, Emma Eubanks. It turned out great though because we were absolutely inseperatable for many, many years. In second grade I had to take speech classes for a little while because I had a lisp. It was so embarrassing to leave class for that! It made me feel stupid because I was normally one that always excelled in class. In the 3th grade I began challenge/TAG programs. That made me feel pretty......

The Order of Things

...Amor Vincit Omnia means ‘’Love conquers all’’. It is a philosophy of life that entails that every human being one day will be conquered by the term love. An important message of the philosophy is that, no matter what happens, love will overcome all obstacles. Carl grew up around his father, who represented the idea, which is that life is transparent and predictable and therefore Carl adapted his father’s perception of life. However, in the short story ‘’the order of things’’ by Judy Troy from 2007, the main character Carl gets to experience the philosophy ‘’love conquers all’’ first hand and his life is changed for good. The narrative is focusing on Carl and his relationship with Lily. Carl has throughout his entire life lived by his father’s idea of life: ‘’Never take chances […] always be prepared of what’s next’’ (p 2. Ll. 54 – 55). Carl is a regular person with a decent job as reverend at the local church; he is decently married and has a daughter. Carl is a pastor which means that he has dedicated his live to preaching the word of god. Carl starts having an affair with a woman named Lily. This is a little ironic because as a pastor you should be able to live by the word of god. Yet, he is breaking one of the Ten Commandments which is ‘’you shall not commit adultery ’’. However, the reason they got together in the first place, was because they reminded so much of each other ‘’they were each in their early forties, married to teachers; they had recently lost a sibling to...

...Fear August 2, 2015 at 1:01 AM It’s been awhile since we did a book club post, huh? I had originally intended to post this in July instead of the Discussion Post; however, so much crap was happening on the back-end side of the site (multiple DDoS attacks, the submission form turning evil after the last plugin update and causing the server to overload itself, etc) as well as various offline issues that I ended up just having to shelve this post until things were a bit calmer. So if you were wondering why there was no Discussion Post last month, that’s why. I had originally intended to have submissions re-opened (check the sidebar Submission Status for the latest update on this; please don’t derail this post with questions that are already answered there – when submissions re-open, it will be a separate post) all the way back in the beginning of July; so I had felt that having that announcement + Discussion + Book Club would have left the front page looking a tad too bloated. But it seems the site had other ideas about how things should play out, so here we are. Better late than never, right? SO. The book that we’re going to talk about this month is very well-known; given that it’s almost twenty years old and spent a lot of time on the Best Seller list, many of you have probably heard of it already. However, it’s striking how well it’s held up and how relevant it remains – many of the scenarios the author details are still happening every single day. The Gift of......

...Philippine Bureau of Agriculture was given the assignment of collecting the best types of pummelos in Thailand. He shipped to San Francisco one tree of a 'Bangkok' type that had been introduced into the Philippines in 1912; it was planted in the greenhouse of the Plant Introduction Garden at Chico. When it fruited several years later, the fruit was of such poor quality that it was considered useless. However, budwood was sent to Riverside and grafted onto two grapefruit trees growing on sour orange rootstock. One of the trees died but the other bore high-quality fruits which were much admired. Budwood was sent to different locations in Florida. In 1919, two trees of a superior pummelo (possibly 'Hao Phuang') from Thailand, which had been doing well in the Philippines, were shipped to the United States Quarantine Station in Bethesda, Maryland, and one of these survived. In addition, seeds from Thailand and from fruits in Chinese markets had been sent to Washington and seedlings were growing in greenhouses. Dr. Fairchild was eager to introduce the red-fleshed type he had enjoyed in 1899. In 1926, he collected budwood at a hotel in Bandoeng and sent it, together with seeds, to the United States Department of Agriculture but they did not survive the trip. However, seeds of a cultivar in Kediri with flesh nearly as red as his ideal pummelo did reach the Citrus Quarantine Station in Bethesda, Maryland (as S.P.I. No. 67641), and the seedlings were grown there successfully. In all......

...Doing Poorly by Doing Good: Corporate Social Responsibility and Brand Concept Article Submission Final Thesis Article Author: Anum Khalid Dar Submitted to: Mrs. Mehrukh Salman Submitted on: 13 April 2015 The idea of brand concept has been used by almost every firm in the world but there has been very little research on what is the impact of brand concept on the consumer’s evaluation of the product. This paper discusses the relation of brand concept with CSR and how it leads to evaluation of the product. Three studies focuses on the relation of CSR and brand concept and the results gathered through experiments reveal that there is a conflict between CSR (selftranscendence) and luxury brand (self-enhancement), the paper also considers the mediating effect of disfluency that triggers a motivational conflict between CSR and self-enhancement which leads to less favorable brand evaluation. The paper also discusses that no such conflicting impact was observed in openness and conservation concepts. The key finding of this paper is the impact of different brand concepts with reference to CSR that leads to brand evaluation. Introduction Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has emerged as an extremely important concept and has gained the attention of many companies. There have been studies on this topic which illustrates it importance and value that CSR activities can bring in for a firm. The McKinsey conducted a global survey with executives as there......

The Things They

...Mark Koon Professor Paquette English 102 / F / 8:00 AM Friday, October 15, 2015 The Things They Carried In the short story, “The Things They Carried” by Tim O’Brien a Lieutenant by the name of Jimmy Cross and his squad carry a list of many things, some of these things heavy physical loads and some heavy emotional loads composed of grief, terror, love, and guilt. The things each soldier carries depends on the soldier himself including his priorities and his constitutions and also his rank or his specialty for example Lieutenant Jimmy Cross carries maps, compasses, and the heavy burden of the responsibility of his men’s lives. A nervous soldier named Ted Lavender carries marijuana and tranquilizers to calm himself down and the religious soldier Kiowa carries an illustrated New Testament and every single one of these men carry the figurative weight of memory, fear, and hope and the literal weight of one another. In this short story the author uses the title symbolically for both the seen and unseen things that men at war carry and to represent the traumas and hardships they have suffered that they will carry for the rest of their lives. These soldiers know they can die at any moment and so when the inevitable happens and a soldier is actually killed in action extra tension stems from the fact that Lt. Cross knows he is responsible. When Ted Lavender is killed in action one of the soldier’s, Kiowa, cannot stop marveling at how fast and hard Lavender hit the ground.......

...was white to segregate themselves and other races into separate schools, doctors, hospitals, jobs, even blood. Making life and getting access to basic rights much harder. These laws gave loop holes for lynching and murdering. We do not know to this day how many African American lives were taken from lynching and other forms of murder. The black man took all the blame from the white man and there was little to nothing they could do to stop it. It was an accepted way of life for them. These laws were still in place, especially in the south until 1965. Henrietta was a victim to this racism as well as the men from the Tuskegee experiments and Emit Till and countless others. The thing is though, back then they didn’t think there was anything abnormal about racism. Henrietta and her family grew up doing hard labor, working in the tobacco fields and generally “ tough work that white men wouldn’t touch”(Skloot 26)...

Doing the Right Thing

...Doing the Right thing on the Streets of Fort Lauderdale I was just about to get into my car at the Fort Lauderdale Post Office when a woman approached me and said in slurred words, “Can you give me 50 cents to catch the bus?” She was gaunt and haggard and I suspected she was much younger than she looked. The ranked stench of alcohol assaulted me. She was obviously under the influence, but I asked her anyway, “Have you been drinking?” Unable to understand her I asked her if she had a home. She said no, and that she’d been sleeping outside. I asked the woman her name and she answered, “Annie.” I said, “Annie, do you have a family?” Her reply was that her husband had died. I asked if she had any children; her response was incomprehensible, so I asked her if she’d like a place to stay. She answered “I’m really tired and want to sleep. My bones feel like their breaking." My heart went out to Annie. What experiences had she endured that had caused her to come to this point in her life? I knew of only one way to get some immediate help for Annie. I asked if I could pray with her and she immediately agreed. She was wearing thick woolen gloves, one of which she immediately took off so she could clasp her hand in mine. That really affected me; her action indicated to me that she really wanted the touch of another warm hand. I wondered how long it had been since she had felt any kind of human contact. Right there in the Post Office parking lot I closed my eyes and we had......
