[paper] The Racist Critics of Ataturk and Kemalism, from the 1930s to the 1960s

Full paper - PDF

This article examines racist attitudes toward Atatu¨rk and Kemalism from the 1930s to the 1960s. Liberal, leftist and conservative-Islamist critics of republican Turkey’s founder and his policies have contributed to a widely shared image that, even if Kemalism was not essentially racist, the Kemalist approach to religious and ethnic minorities could hardly be described as egalitarian. Thus one is taken by surprise to uncover a parallel layer of virulent racist criticism, hidden under the deposit of decades of anti-Kemalist discourse


[Movie] Recently loved shorts

I follow “Dust” Youtube channel to watch curated short movies (mostly sci-fi but not only).

My recent favourite and discovery was “Macabre” in horror category. It was a realistic but disturbing taste. Multiple different historical and philosophical signs are included.

Strongly recommended : youtube.com/watch?v=Ywn-hWPCJ3Y

K just crashed his Mercedes-Benz into a tree, moments after trying to avoid running down a small wild animal that ran across his path. He is on a backwater road in the countryside and it’s a very dark night. His evening has only just begun... “Macabre” by Jerónimo Rocha and João Miguel Real

[paper] Dialectical Logic and Boolean Algebra - Yaozhi Jiang

Full paper - PDF

Dialectical logic was founded by German famous philosopher F. Hegel, but it has not been laid on mathematics for a long time. In this paper author explains the dialectical logic pure mathematically, and shows that the classic formal logic, its mathematical expression is Boolean algebra(includes multiple value system), is a special case from dialectical logic, and the true-valued function for dialectical logic is a continuous function valued on closed interval and defined on time-space axes system. The Aristotle three laws of formal logic are expanded into expression of dialectical logic, and Russell paradox is expanded into the case of multiple order. Some new theorems for Boolean operators and the matrix expression for De Morgan’s theorem of multiple variables dialectical logic are given. At the end of the paper, linear or nonlinear dialectical logic are defined and analysis properties of dialectical logic true-valued function are pointed.

[paper] A paper by Google: Why container Security matters?

Understanding the container security concepts that impact your organization

Full paper - PDF

TLDR;

Scream these to your developer team:

  • Don’t let the shipping container imagery fool you; containers are not a special security boundary
  • Containers use primitives of the Linux kernel (cgroups, namespaces) toisolate processes in an environment
  • A “container image” is your application and its dependencies, and uses a “base image”as the basis for thecontainer image
  • Container registries host your container images. It’s important that you be able to trust your base and container images, and that you use a private, trusted registry
