New Delhi, Mar 10 (PTI) To train youths in collecting safety-related data and actively report law violations, Campus Ambassador program was today launched here by US Ambassador to India Richard Verma.”Introduction of innovative practical solutions is important to address the global concern for women safety,” Verma said at the launch while endorsing an app called safetipin using which people can rate safety of a place after dark and report unsafe activities to the police.”Globalisation, technological advances, and the spread of social networking offer new opportunities for youth to connect and become active participants in finding solutions to the worlds toughest development challenges,” Verma said.These kinds of initiatives and practical solutions are a huge part of what we (USA) do and what we stand for. With programmes such as this, we will be ambassadors of not just our countries but also such causes, he added.Activist Kamla Bhasin said that modern India and people should do away with “outdated” dogmas and traditions that challenge the rights of women as Indian citizens and as human beings.”Culture is created by societies; it is not God-made. And it is created in a certain context and if that context no more exists or if the culture is not relevant to the current times, it should be done away with,” Bhasin said.During the programme, women who have done extraordinary works for society in various fields including governance, corporate world and sports were awarded.High commissioner of Canada to India, Nadir Patel, also drew from his personal experience to underscore the need for women empowerment and extended his and Canadas support to the programme.

DevOps database solution provider DBmaestro has announced the latest release of its CI/CD and release automation solution. DBmaestro DevOps Platform 7.5 rolls out with a focus on flexibility and compliance.In addition, the release provides PostgreSQL support. According to the company, PostgreSQL is quickly becoming the leading database for DevOps teams. DB-Engines ranks it fourth amoung hundreds of databases around the world. “Our DevOps platform unleashes the power of PostgreSQL databases by enabling DevOps and database teams to implement DevOps best practices and accelerate time to market with a high level of confidence, minimal risk and maximum efficiency,” said Yaniv Yehuda, CTO at DBmaestro.For flexibility, DBmaestro now enables users to build from any environment to any environment as well as for different pipelines and projects. “In addition, customers can build a hot fix (just the delta) from one environment to another,” Yehuda wrote in a blog post. “DBmaestro will find all these inconsistencies between the environments and allow to override it, roll it back, or merge it back to development.” The release also aims to provide better tracking with tags. Tags enable users to track tickets, their environment, and impact of objects and tickets. Yehuda explained tags also enable improved support and information of what was deployed and why, and offers more details, which can become useful for complying with specific regulations.For multi-project implementations, the company now provides the ability to add relations between several pipelines. For instance, users can specify a development pipeline or a production pipeline.“When it comes to package promotion and transfer between projects, you can move the package, or create a build. DBmaestro can use a promotion or transfer/command in order to move the packages between these projects. At the same time, you can take the drift from production and create a script in the release source. Versions can move from one environment to the other through the development-oriented pipeline, and then graduate to the production-oriented pipeline,” Yehuda wrote.
