Faculty Candidate Visit: Bharat S Rawal Kshatriya – Applications of Split-protocol

By Vladimir RozovskiyComments Off

On Monday, November 10th at 12:00 pm at M336 Dr. Bharat Rawal will be presenting on Applications of Split-protocol.


A protocol is considered to be in-separable entity between two communicating parties. This paper proposes a novel concept that changes the definition of protocols by splitting a protocol into two sub-entities. This proposed architecture performs identical functions as a non-split protocol system and builds a foundation for many innovative ideas that are not envisioned in a non-split protocol system. The split protocol concept and its motivations are presented here. The concept is explored in implementing client server architectures, mini-cluster configurations and migratory servers, Big-Data and DDoS. Attributes such as improvement in server performance, constructing a variety of mini-cluster configurations to serve large workloads, building clusters without using expensive partitioning strategies, achieving simpler migratory servers and enriching client server architectures to accommodate client splitting and achieving inherent reliability in server designs have being found in the split concept. The above novel features are illustrated in this paper by describing architecture, design and implementation of Web server and client applications. In addition, this paper also serves as a single source of knowledge for split protocol concept and its broader impact on future network architectures, designs and implementations.

Personal Finance For College And Beyond | Featuring Rick Bloom, J.D., CPA

By Vladimir RozovskiyComments Off

On Monday, October 6th and Wednesday, October 8th, students had an opportunity to attend Personal Finance For College And Beyond lecture by Financial expert, Rick Bloom, from Bloom Asset Management in Farmington Hills.

About the presentation:

While students spend a lot of time studying math, science or history in high school, the schools have done a poor job of educating students on how to manage their finances. That lack of financial knowledge can create bigger problems as college students try to handle college costs and real world expenses once they graduate.

Financial expert, Rick Bloom, from Bloom Asset Management in Farmington Hills will provide tips for good personal financial habits for college. He will also look at ways college graduates can avoid some financial pitfalls once they enter the work world and have to deal with paying off college loans and incurring other expenses. As Rick Bloom always says, it’s not how much you make, but how much you save.This presentation will help students and graduates learn more about being fiscally responsible with their personal finances.

Rick Bloom is a founder and partner in Bloom Asset Management and the law firm Bloom, Bloom & Associates in Farmington Hills and is a twice-weekly financial columnist for the Observer & Eccentric Newspapers. Rick has also been featured on WXYZ-TV Channel 7’s “Don’t Waste Your Money” segment.

He served as host of the popular “Rick Bloom Show” on WDTK-AM 1400 and was also host of the “Money Talk” radio show on WXYT 1270-AM for 16 years.

Rick is an honors graduate of both Michigan State University and the University of Michigan Law School. He is a licensed attorney and a Certified Public Accountant (CPA).
