It was only 6,000 years ago that it frequently rained in the Sahara desert, leaving it covered in vast vegetation and grasslands, so what happened?Two researchers from Texas U University have been trying to get to the bottom of how such a huge shift in climate change occurred in the localised area in North Africa in just a few thousand years.Frank Krahmer via Getty ImagesThe transformation of a heavily vegetated region into one of the most arid plains on earth does not happen overnight, and Professors Robert Korty and William Boos have been trying to track down the origin of this change.The team began by comparing the Holocene era, which began 12,000 to 11,500 years ago at the close of the Paleolithic ice age as earth entered a warming period, to the present-day intertropical convergence zone and Hadley circulation.The Hadley circulation rises near the equator and where it descends in the subtropics, it can create desert-like conditions.

Each year brings the same amount of innovation as the previous several years — and the human brain finds it hard to imagine the consequences.For example, experts estimated that it would take another decade before a computer would beat a world champion at the ancient and complex game of Go — yet AlphaGo triumphed earlier this year.It s not hard to find parallels between how new technologies are changing the world today, and how they will affect our business systems in the future.What if enterprise software could do the same thing, using the experiences of every business user to improve everybody s experience?Eventually, we could even replace existing processes with automated best practices.Incorporating artificial intelligence and machine learning into enterprise software opens the opportunity to simplify employees everyday lives and allows them to focus on higher value tasks.

Microsoft's J.C. Hornbeck has valiantly tried to announce VMM SDN Express for Microsoft System Center VMM: a bundle of automation scripts covering SDN stack deployment; setup inputs; and a dummy parameters file.More accurately, perhaps, Microsoft has nearly added software-defined networking SDN automation to its System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2016, because there's a couple of oddities we'll get to later.Hornbeck reckons the idea is to cut out likely deployment errors, compared to an SDN deployment following many scripts.Fabric admins … are able to specify all of the parameters at one time and then come back later to a complete SDN stack, including network controller, software load balancer and gateway, all deployed through VMM, he writes.Once you deploy SDN using this script, the complete stack is manageable via the VMM UI just as it would if you had deployed SDN using the VMM UI wizards .Because we're not only interested in snark but we enjoy it when it's on offer, El Reg has asked two questions: why Redmond went live with the post, when the VMM SDN Deployment Guide is still a 404 error; and, because it might be important, why Hornbeck linked to this GitHub repository that identifies itself as 25 commits behind the master repo.
