ArangoDB Boosts Multi-Model Database Scalability Across Distributed Environments with Release of ArangoDB 3.5

Using k Shortest Path, a new graph query in ArangoDB 3.5, to find the shortest distance between cities.

Using k Shortest Path, a new graph query in ArangoDB 3.5, to find the shortest distance between cities.

New features help accelerate enterprise development efforts to query, secure and search across graph, JSON document and key-value data

Our multi-model core enables developers to leverage other data models by just changing a query, providing the freedom to build powerful applications while keeping their infrastructure lean and agile.”

— Claudius Weinberger, CEO and co-founder of ArangoDB

SAN FRANCISCO AND COLOGNE, GERMANY, August 21, 2019 / — ArangoDB, the leading open source native multi-model database, today announced the GA release of ArangoDB 3.5. ArangoDB 3.5 contains new features that allow its growing customer base to more easily query, secure and search their growing data sets across multiple data models, making database scalability across distributed environments a reality.

ArangoDB 3.5 brings updates to both the Community Edition, which is fully open source under the Apache 2.0 license, as well as the Enterprise Edition, ArangoDB’s commercial offering that includes features to help more easily secure and scale ArangoDB across an organization.

“Developers tell us that they increasingly need to leverage multiple data models for their applications, and in large organizations we see up to 20-30 different database technologies in production across the enterprise,” said Claudius Weinberger, CEO and co-founder of ArangoDB. “The enhancements in ArangoDB 3.5 on top of our native multi-model core enable developers to leverage other data models by just changing a query, giving them the freedom to create and run powerful applications while keeping their infrastructure lean and agile.”

The key features in ArangoDB 3.5 are:

SmartJoins: Co-located Join Operations Across Sharded Data
SmartJoins (available only in ArangoDB Enterprise) follow the concept of co-located joins and power highly-efficient and fast join operations against large volumes of distributed data in a cluster setting. With the addition of SmartJoins, ArangoDB Enterprise provides a unique feature set to work with complex queries against distributed data efficiently.

Streaming Transactions API: ACID transactions via language driver
ArangoDB 3.5 enables BEGIN, COMMIT or ABORT (rollback) ACID transaction operations from supported language drivers, including Java Sync, Go, JavaScript and PHP. While ArangoDB has always supported ACID transactions, the streaming transactions API allows users to execute and control them from their favorite language bindings, creating an experience similar to a RDBMS, but in NoSQL database. ArangoDB currently supports full ACID guarantees in single instance setups only.

Configurable Analyzers and Sorted Indexes: Search Engine Performance Improvements
ArangoSearch is a C++ based full-text search engine that’s natively integrated into ArangoDB and can be used in combination with document and graph queries. With ArangoDB 3.5, ArangoSearch now has sorted indexes and configurable analyzers, allowing users to speed up query performance by 1500x, as well as more easily manage ArangoDB in a multi-tenant environment.

k Shortest Path and PRUNE: Additional Graph Database Capabilities
ArangoDB 3.5 sees new graph query performance improvements with k Shortest Path and PRUNE. k Shortest Path enables users to query for all shortest paths between two vertices and analyze result sets by path length or weight. This helps with a variety of use cases, from threat intelligence and cybersecurity to navigation. PRUNE lets users add a syntax to their queries that adds the ability to explicitly stop deeper searching at a specific condition. This helps reduce the overhead generated by a traversal query and speed up query performance.

Data Masking and Time-to-Live Index: Enhanced Data Security and Extended GDPR Compliance
Data masking gives users the ability to safely work with production data in their testing environment by masking personal data like credit cards, social security numbers, names, and addresses in a way that anonymizes sensitive data. In ArangoDB Enterprise, users can preserve the structure of their data to test and develop applications further with production-like data. Data masking helps businesses better comply with security regulations such as the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the upcoming Consumer Privacy Act of California.

Time-to-live index is a new index type that lets users configure it to automatically expire documents in a collection. Users can configure these documents to expire on a specific date/time or after a certain period of time, as well as the frequency of the background job deleting the expired documents.

Index Hints and Sort-Limit Optimization: Query Performance Improvements
ArangoDB 3.5 also includes query performance improvements with the introduction of index hints, named indexes, and sort-limit optimization. Index hints allow users to avoid full collection scans by either providing a hint for an index in a given query, or allowing the user to enforce the usage of a certain index. Sort-limit optimization speeds up the performance of SORTS on large quantities of data where users only need a small fraction of the results. It maintains a reduced set of data in memory, preventing the need to sort an entire data set in order to return results.

Joseph Grinkorn: Trump and the U.S. economy are unstoppable

Joseph Grinkorn CEO of Morris Group

Joseph Grinkorn investment expert and CEO of Morris Group predicts, as the US stock market hits all time highs the US economy under Pres.Trump is unstoppable.

The US stock market will continue to hit all time highs and if the US & China trade war escalates the US economy long term is still unstoppable.”

— Joseph Grinkorn

NY – NEW YORK, USA, August 20, 2019 / — After a steep market correction ending 2018. The stock market has come back to all time highs. Recent tensions with the US China trade war has made markets a little volatile, but as president Trump has said "there's no rush" to get a deal done with China, the US could be better off with no deal.

Trumps recent 25% tariff increase on 200$ billion of Chinese goods coming into the US has to hurt the Chinese market, and if need be, he has an additional 340$ billion to keep taxing. China on the other hand is basically maxed out, as the US only exports 120$ billion of goods into China. All retaliatory measures China has already used up.

Traders and analysts are split with most disagreeing with the president, however Grinkorn thinks the presidents game plan just might be the best thing for an ultimate deal for the US and China. Grinkorn continues by saying: “Trump’s book "the art of the deal" was a best seller and he looks at the economy as a business deal, not as a political agenda, It's a big difference. When one analyzes the current trade deal it’s obvious the US isn't getting a fair deal. And ultimately that's what Trump wants a fair deal, not a favorable one.”

From Chinas standpoint, Grinkorn predicts a deal will get done soon, as their economy continues to struggle, they won't have much of a choice. There are many other countries in Asia that would be happy increasing exports to the US and picking up for China. When Trump was elected, they thought he would be easier to deal with as he has had a relationship with Chinese investors and banks for many years. But he ran as an America First campaign and that's what he is delivering. "Making America great again"

Grinkorn adds Trump to date has delivered the lowest un-employment numbers in history a record-breaking stock market and the biggest tax cuts in decades, all in two and a half years this is simply an amazing achievement that no one thought was possible.

Trade has been a big issue for years Unfortunately other presidents did not want to touch it do to politics, however the president won the presidency as a non-politician candidate, and once he finally makes a deal with China, markets will continue to hit new record highs and pave the way for a 2020 presidential re-election.

Joffrey Long, Hard Money Lending Expert Witness, Answers Questions About Foreclosures and Trustees Sales

Mortgage Expert Witness

Joffrey Long

Test Your Knowledge: 10 "Normal Questions" and 9 Difficult Ones

If you can answer 40% of these foreclosure questions, you’re ahead of most of the people in our industry.”

— Joffrey Long

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, August 20, 2019 / — “Non-judicial foreclosure” in California involves a notice of default, a notice of trustees sale, the trustees sale auction, and property going to one of the bidders or reverting back to the lender/beneficiary.

There's a lot more to foreclosures and trustees sales than just what I mentioned. If you can answer 40% of these foreclosure questions, you’re ahead of most of the people in our industry. The last 9 questions are a little more advanced – all the answers will be in my next article, tomorrow.

Confirm your knowledge:

Trustees Sale Bidding: The first trust deed on a property is foreclosing. The lender’s minimum bid including the loan balance, payments due, advances, and charges on their first loan is $310,000. There’s an existing second trust deed with a $60,000 unpaid balance and a 3rd trust deed with a balance of $100,000. The property sells at the trustees sale for $400,000. What happens to the money paid at the sale in excess of $310,000? Who receives it?
What if the same house with the same 1st, 2nd, and 3rd sold for $500,000? What would happen to the money?

Second trust Deed: A lender holds a $50,000 second trust deed on a property. There’s a first trust deed for $200,000 and the first trust deed begins a foreclosure. How can the holder of the second protect their interest?

Is there another way they can protect their interest?

Delinquent property tax: House was purchased in 2015 with 250,000 first loan. Property owner never paid property taxes. By 2019, $18,500 in delinquent property taxes are due. First trust deed forecloses. Total balance on the first at time of sale is $291,000 and the property sells at the auction for $360,000:

1- Do the property taxes get paid from the trustees sale proceeds?

2- Does the buyer get the property free of the unpaid property taxes?

IRS Lien: There’s a $310,000 first trust deed that’s been on the property for 5 years. 2 years ago, the owner got an IRS lien for $75,000. The first forecloses and the property goes to auction. It sells at the trustees sale for $500,000.

1- Is the IRS lien paid off from the trustees sale?

2- Is the IRS lien “wiped out”?

3- Does the new buyer take the property with an IRS lien attached to it?

Excess Proceeds: The total of the first trust deed lender’s loan, payments and other charges is $270,000. The first forecloses and at the sale, the property sells for $400,000. After the foreclosing first trust deed holder gets their $270,000, how is the remainder of the $400,000 distributed?

Trustees Sale: Who is the auctioneer at the trustee’s sale? Who announces the auction, the property address, the trustees sale number, the opening bid, and calls for additional bids, then announces the winning bidder?

The questions get harder…………

Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure: A lender holds a loan and is foreclosing. To avoid having a foreclosure on their record, the borrower is willing to sign the property over to the lender with a deed in lieu of foreclosure. If the borrower just deeds the house to the lender, they can both bypass the foreclosure process.
Should the lender accept the deed in lieu?

Why or why not?

Lender’s Bidding at the Trustees Sale: Sometimes you’ll hear that “there was a trustees sale but there were no bidders.” This is never correct. To schedule a trustees sale, a lender must always submit a minimum opening bid. There’s always at least one bid (the lender’s) at any trustees sale. Bidders OTHER THAN the lender are called “third party bidders.” It is often true that “there were no third-party bidders at the trustees sale and the lender’s bid was the only bid.”

Question: If a lender is foreclosing, what is the maximum amount of their opening bid?

Next question: Is there ever a reason why the lender should bid less than the maximum they’re allowed to bid?

Foreclosure 103: These questions are a little tougher yet………

Is Property Auctioned at the Trustees Sale Sold “As-Is?”

Are You Sure?

Judicial Foreclosure:

We’ve talked about non-judicial foreclosure – notice of default, notice of trustees sale, then an auction, the most common in California. It can take as little as about four months, costs are about 2% of the amount of the trust deed being foreclosed on. Judicial foreclosure is a “full-on” lawsuit and could take years. It could cost tens, maybe hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Question: Why would anyone do a judicial foreclosure?

What other reasons are there?

Could you start both a judicial and a non-judicial foreclosure at the same time?

How did you do?

Please watch for part 2, tomorrow. We'll discuss the answers.

Joffrey Long: Key Reasons You Should Attend a Live Class

One idea, one contact, or one new way to improve your business could be worth the entire class.”

— Joffrey Long

GRANADA HILLS, CA, UNITED STATES, August 20, 2019 / — A growing number of attendees return to live classes year after year. Live classes are entertaining, interactive, and draw not only on course material, but on the combined decades of experience of the instructor and the attendees. Participants in live classes contribute their personal knowledge, often to the benefit of the group.

The fast moving classes cover:

Federal Law and Regulation impacting real estate loans, including TILA/RESPA Integrated Disclosures (TRID), Fair
Lending, and practical aspects of compliance and interaction with Federal requirements.

Non-Traditional Mortgages, including VA Loans, will be addressed, along with coverage of Qualified Mortgage and “Non-QM” loans, and Hard Money Loans. (Private money loans)

State Law and Regulation are also covered, along with practical aspects of compliance, including the California Homeowner’s Bill of Rights, (HBOR) requirements and compliance with HBOR, and non-judicial Foreclosure.

Ethics, including compliance with privacy laws, as well as ethics for those who are loan originators is covered. It is also discussed as it relates to loan servicers, or lenders who may service a mortgage.

Expert witness testimony in Superior Courts, Federal Courts, Bankruptcy Court, and in Arbitrations provides Joffrey Long with additional insights and information of value. Certain loan originators, loan servicing personnel, and other participants in either making, arranging, or servicing consumer-purpose loans are required to hold an NMLS endorsement, often in addition to another license under which they originate loans.

Loan originators get more from the classes than just continuing education credit. They network, exchange ideas on the direction of the industry, trends in mortgage lending, and information about useful sources, lenders, and ways of dealing with the continual changes we face. One idea, one contact, or one new way to improve your business could be worth the entire class!

The 8-hour class will be provided in numerous locations in Los Angeles, Orange, and San Bernardino Counties. Joffrey Long will be teaching the class in the following locations:

* Wednesday, August 21, in Downey, CA, and

* Friday, August 23, in Van Nuys, CA, and
