Seam carving - Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org)
Seam carving (or liquid rescaling) is an algorithm for content-aware image resizing, developed by Shai Avidan, of Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL), and Ariel Shamir, of the Interdisciplinary Center and MERL. It functions by establishing a number of seams (paths of least importance) in an image and automatically removes seams to reduce image size or inserts seams to extend it. Seam carving also allows manually defining areas in whi...
Seam Carving - Alexander Soto (alexander.soto.io)
This program resizes images dynamically, based on the content of the image using a seam carving algorithm. It removes the least important part of the picture first. It uses dynamic programming to calculate the seams, and javascript typed arrays to speed up computation (which means it only works in modern browsers). Source can be found on GitHub.

Serverless computing - Wikipedia (en.m.wikipedia.org)
Serverless computing is a cloud-computing execution model in which the cloud provider runs the server, and dynamically manages the allocation of machine resources. Pricing is based on the actual amount of resources consumed by an application, rather than on pre-purchased units of capacity.[1] It can be a form of utility computing.

SQLite Backup API (www.sqlite.org)
Historically, backups (copies) of SQLite databases have been created using the following method: Establish a shared lock on the database file using the SQLite API (i.e. the shell tool). Copy the database file using an external tool (for example the unix 'cp' utility or the DOS 'copy' command). Relinquish the shared lock on the database file obtained in step 1. This procedure works well in many scenarios and is usua...
Command Line Shell For SQLite (sqlite.org)
The SQLite project provides a simple command-line program named sqlite3 (or sqlite3.exe on Windows) that allows the user to manually enter and execute SQL statements against an SQLite database or against a ZIP archive. This document provides a brief introduction on how to use the sqlite3 program.
Write-Ahead Logging (www.sqlite.org)
The default method by which SQLite implements atomic commit and rollback is a rollback journal. Beginning with version 3.7.0 (2010-07-21), a new "Write-Ahead Log" option (hereafter referred to as "WAL") is available.
How To Corrupt An SQLite Database File (www.sqlite.org)
SQLite database files are ordinary disk files. That means that any process can open the file and overwrite it with garbage. There is nothing that the SQLite library can do to defend against this.

Seam carving - Wikipedia
Seam carving (or liquid rescaling) is an algorithm for content-aware image resizing, developed by Shai Avidan, of Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL), and Ariel Shamir, of the Interdisciplinary Center and MERL. It functions by establishing a number of seams (paths of least importance) in an image and automatically removes seams to reduce image size or inserts seams to extend it. Seam carving also allows manually defining areas in whi...

Serverless computing - Wikipedia
Serverless computing is a cloud-computing execution model in which the cloud provider runs the server, and dynamically manages the allocation of machine resources. Pricing is based on the actual amount of resources consumed by an application, rather than on pre-purchased units of capacity.[1] It can be a form of utility computing.

Compression release engine brake - Wikipedia
A compression release engine brake, frequently called a Jacobs brake or Jake brake, is an engine braking mechanism installed on some diesel engines. When activated, it opens exhaust valves in the cylinders after the compression stroke, releasing the compressed gas trapped in the cylinders, and slowing the vehicle.
Endothelial dysfunction - Wikipedia
In vascular diseases, endothelial dysfunction is a systemic pathological state of the endothelium. Along with acting as a semi-permeable membrane, the endothelium is responsible for maintaining vascular tone and regulating oxidative stress by releasing mediators, such as nitric oxide, prostacyclin and endothelin, and controlling local angiotensin-II activity.[1][2]
Rodízio - Wikipedia

SQLite Is Serverless (www.sqlite.org)
Most SQL database engines are implemented as a separate server process. Programs that want to access the database communicate with the server using some kind of interprocess communication (typically TCP/IP) to send requests to the server and to receive back results. SQLite does not work this way. With SQLite, the process that wants to access the database reads and writes directly from the database files on disk. There is no intermediary ser...
