One of my friends is working as an exchangeable student researcher at Harvard University. He has ever told us the activities in his class at this top honors university. Everything in the lesson will have to connect to the current issues and relate to other disciplines.

Every Pixar movie is connected. I explain how, and possibly why.
Several months ago, I watched a fun-filled video on Cracked.com that introduced the idea (at least to me) that all of the Pixar movies actually exist within the same universe. Since then, I’ve obsessed over this concept, working to complete what I call “The Pixar Theory,” a working narrative that ties all of the Pixar movies into one cohesive timeline with a main theme.
This theory covers every Pixar production since Toy Story. That includes:
- A Bug’s Life
- Toy Story 2
- Monsters Inc.
- Finding Nemo
- The Incredibles
- Toy Story 3
- Cars 2
- Monsters University
The point of this theory is to have fun and exercise your imagination while simultaneously finding interesting connections between these fantastic movies. If you hate fun and/or imagination, you probably won’t like this theory.

“Hoàng tử” Bảo Ân. (Hình: Huy Phương/Người Việt)
Nhiều người Việt Nam sống ở quận Cam nhiều năm nay nhưng ít người biết có một người con trai của Cựu Hoàng Bảo Ðại đang sinh sống tại nơi này.
Ðó là ông Nguyễn Phước Bảo Ân, con trai của bà Lê Phi Ánh, người vợ không hôn thú của cựu hoàng trong thời gian ở Ðà Lạt. Bà Phi Ánh có hai người con với cựu hoàng là bà Nguyễn Phúc Phương Minh sinh năm 1950 đã qua đời tại Mỹ cách đây vài năm và ông Bảo Ân, sinh năm 1951, đang sống tại thủ phủ tỵ nạn, Westminster.
Chúng tôi không gọi ông Bảo Ân bằng hoàng tử như trong văn bản triều đình mà gọi bằng “Mệ” theo lối xưng hô trong hoàng tộc: Con gái, con trai của vua được gọi bằng Mệ…

These maps are really useful for studying about our world.

If you’re a visual learner like myself, then you know maps, charts and infographics can really help bring data and information to life. Maps can make a point resonate with readers and this collection aims to do just that.
Hopefully some of these maps will surprise you and you’ll learn something new. A few are important to know, some interpret and display data in a beautiful or creative way, and a few may even make you chuckle or shake your head.
If you enjoy this collection of maps, the Sifter highly recommends the r/MapPorn sub reddit. You should also check out ChartsBin.com. There were also fantastic posts on Business Insider and Bored Panda earlier this year that are worth checking out. Enjoy!

NoSQL Data Modeling Techniques
Originally posted on Highly Scalable Blog:
NoSQL databases are often compared by various non-functional criteria, such as scalability, performance, and consistency. This aspect of NoSQL is well-studied both in practice and theory because specific non-functional properties are often the main justification for NoSQL usage and fundamental results on distributed systems like the CAP theorem apply well to NoSQL systems. At the same time, NoSQL data modeling is not so well studied and lacks the systematic theory found in relational databases. In this article I provide a short comparison of NoSQL system families from the data modeling point of view and digest several common modeling techniques.
I would like to thank Daniel Kirkdorffer who reviewed the article and cleaned up the grammar.
To explore data modeling techniques, we have to start with a more or less systematic view of NoSQL data models that preferably reveals trends and interconnections. The following figure depicts imaginary “evolution” of the major NoSQL…
