  • Before we dive into the core microarchitecture, it’s important to look at the full SoC Centaur developed, codename CHA.
  • At the heart of the new CHA SoC are eight new high-performance x86 cores, codename CNS.
  • As usual, you can find a fully complete microarchitectural deep dive of the new core on our main CNS WikiChip article.
  • Turns out Centaur didn’t add one with this design – a crucial component found in all Intel big cores for the past decade and something AMD has added with its recent Zen-based microarchitecture series.

Can you crawl data from LinkedIn?

  • For the first project, we would need a script that logs into LinkedIn, visits the University of Mannheim alumni page, scrolls down automatically to load new profiles, and then creates a list of all URLs to the alumni’s LinkedIn page.
  • Right now the script is able to visit LinkedIn, log in, request the Mannheim alumni page and then starts scraping the names of the alumni.
  • Comparing the two biggest employers in close proximity to our university indicates that SAP seems to have increased their hiring efforts the last years while BASF stayed more or the less stable, at least regarding Mannheim graduates with profiles on LinkedIn. Some employers like Deutsche Bank either seem to reduce hiring or stop to be interesting to Mannheim alumni compared to previous years.

  • Stoner, a book that received very little notice upon its appearance several months ago, is, I think, such a work.’ Williams’s boss’s widow later told Charles Shields, who tells the story in The Man who Wrote the Perfect Novel, that the novelist stationed himself in the English department’s outer office, in sight of the faculty mailboxes, the morning after Howe’s review reached subscribers in Colorado.
