Pound for pound, Lambda is more expensive than EC2. If you building something that needs to run 24 and is highly paralleled, with consistent workloads, an EC2 instance will likely be cheaper. For serverless databases, APIs, and queues the same rule applies the more layers of managedness they have, the more expensive they are compared to hosting databases and queues on your own in a container..
Within New Zealand this conflict is particularly fraught around domestic cats (Felis catus) in the urban environment, where both owned and unowned individuals live at high densities. Cats in New Zealand are recognised as major introduced predators of native fauna, but they also prey upon small introduced predatory mammals. This dynamic causes much conflict between people with different attitudes towards animals, but as yet few studies have explored the role(s), either negative or positive, of urban cats in New Zealand.
They warn us of danger, second guess past actions, and provide us with critical feedback about ourselves. This kept us safe back when we were hunters and gatherers. If 1/3 of our internal dialogue is positive and self affirming, we are doing really well.
Objective: To assess an intervention to familiarise parents with children’s books for use in primary (5 11years) sex and relationship education (SRE) classes.Method: Case study of a 7 week programme in one London primary school, using ethnographic observation, semi structured interviews and focus groups with parents (n=7) and key stakeholders (n=4), and pre and post programme self completion questionnaires (n=9).Results: Parents reported increased understanding of the SRE curriculum and awareness of relevant children’s books, enhanced interactions with their children on SRE topics and some positive effects on partners and attitudes towards the school. There was increased confidence in addressing issues in the SRE curriculum for parents of 8 to 10 year olds, although reduced confidence for one mother.Conclusions: Familiarising parents with materials has the potential to enhance SRE, by improving coherence between educators’ and parents’ messages to children about sex and relationships, increased discussion of SRE topics in parent child conversations and reduced parental anxiety about topics such as sexual orientation. Future challenges of involving fathers, scalability and sustainability highlight the dilemma of how best to enable parental choice or make equalities interventions..
George, the annual event sees participants completing as many 6 mile loops (for a possible total of 102 miles) as they can within 12 hours, with 1.5 hours allotted per loop. Failure to complete a loop in that time frame results in elimination from the race, with the “last one standing” declared the winner.”I figured it would be perfect for me because there’s a break after every lap, and there’s no shame in dropping out after a few laps because eventually everyone does,” Christensen laughed. “So over the summer of 2019, I was putting in about 200 miles a month to train.
