Natural Resources and Environmental Issues (NREI)

Natural Resources and Environmental Issues (NREI)
http://digitalcommons.usu.edu/nrei/

Natural Resources and Environmental Issues (NREI), first published in 1993, is a monographic series that recognizes its role in educating natural resources leaders who can then provide the guidance needed to increase the production of the earth’s renewable resources while sustaining/enhancing the global environment. The journal is published in a series of volumes, each addressing a single topic and often associated with an organized symposium. The scope of Natural Resources and Environmental Issues (NREI) encompasses all subjects related to the terrestrial sciences, aquatic resources, and environmental studies. The monographic subjects often address critical resources in environments where scarcity influences management, quality of life, and the functioning of natural landscapes. They hope that each issue will serve as a model for understanding and addressing issues in wildland, agricultural land, and urban land ecosystems. Natural Resources and Environmental Issues is available free of charge as an Open Access journal on the Internet. Abstracts available online. Articles available in PDF format.

Apache Pig – Platform for Analyzing Large Datasets

Apache Pig – Platform for Analyzing Large Datasets
http://pig.apache.org/

Apache Pig is a platform for analyzing large data sets that consists of a high-level language for expressing data analysis programs, coupled with infrastructure for evaluating these programs. The salient property of Pig programs is that their structure is amenable to substantial parallelization, which in turns enables them to handle very large data sets. At the present time, Pig’s infrastructure layer consists of a compiler that produces sequences of Map-Reduce programs, for which large-scale parallel implementations already exist (e.g., the Hadoop subproject). Pig’s language layer currently consists of a textual language called Pig Latin, which has the following key properties: a) Ease of programming. It is trivial to achieve parallel execution of simple, “embarrassingly parallel” data analysis tasks. Complex tasks comprised of multiple interrelated data transformations are explicitly encoded as data flow sequences, making them easy to write, understand, and maintain; b) Optimization opportunities. The way in which tasks are encoded permits the system to optimize their execution automatically, allowing the user to focus on semantics rather than efficiency; and c) Extensibility. Users can create their own functions to do special-purpose processing. This has been added to Data mining Resources Subject Tracer™.

Breakout Labs

Breakout Labs
http://www.breakoutlabs.org/

Breakout Labs is the Thiel Foundation’s newest program. Through Breakout Labs, they are reshaping the way early-stage science is funded, so that independent researchers and early-stage companies can advance their most radical ideas. Venture capital firms want research that can be quickly brought to market, and federal funding offers little room for risky, unproven ideas. They are jumping into this funding gap to energize innovative research. Breakout Labs is not a typical foundation grant—they are a revolutionary, revolving funding model where successful projects fund the next generation of audacious scientific exploration.
