Search People on Web

There are various reasons why we might need to search for people, we may need to find a lost relative, an old flame, a classmate or a business contact – but if we are using a search engine such as Google or Yahoo to search for people, we have probably realized by now that it might work in some cases but in most cases it won’t.

How come the best search engines fail so miserably when it comes to people search? The answer lies in a little known but very important part of the web called “the deep web“.

Also known as “invisible web”, the term “deep web” refers to a vast repository of underlying content, such as documents in online databases that general-purpose web crawlers cannot reach. The deep web content is estimated at 500 times that of the surface web, yet has remained mostly untapped due to the limitations of traditional search engines.

Since most personal profiles, public records and other people-related documents are stored in databases and not on static web pages, most of the higher-quality information about people is simply “invisible” to a regular search engine.

Some of the site with Deep Web content are :



Deep Web query-engine find content on deep web pages that cannot be found on regular search engines. Unlike a typical search-engine, they are designed to retrieve information from the deep web, its bots interact with searchable databases and extract data, contact details and other relevant information from personal profiles, member directories, scientific publications, court records and numerous other deep-web sources.
It is not just about finding more results, it uses advanced language-analysis and ranking algorithms to bring us the most relevant bits of information about a person in a single, easy-to-read results page.

Some of such good people search engines are :

Exploring Node.js Internals

I found a great article explaining Node JS internals, must read : https://www.smashingmagazine.com/2020/04/nodejs-internals/ Some other articles : Introduction to Node.js Being an official website, Node.dev explains what Node.js is, as well as its package managers, and lists web frameworks built on top of it. “ JavaScript & Node.js ”,  The Node Beginner Book This book by  Manuel Kiessling  does a fantastic job of explaining Node.js, after warning that JavaScript in the browser is not the same as the one in Node.js, even though both are written in the same language. Beginning Node.js This beginner book goes beyond an explanation of the runtime. It teaches about packages and streams and creating a web server with the Express framework. LibUV This is the official documentation of the supporting C++ code of the Node.js runtime. V8 This is the official documentation of the JavaScript engine that makes it possible to write Node.js with JavaScript.

Hibernate Object Conversations

Session methods to use for object conversations Save() A new instance being attached to the session. An insert will be scheduled. Update() Call Update to make a transient object persistent again. It will force a SQL update on the transient object. This is because Hibernate does not know whether the object is dirty or not and to be safe by default schedules an update. This method will throw an exception, if the entity is already registered with the session. - NonUniqueObjectException is thrown. saveOrUpdate() Either a save or an update will be called based on whether the identifier exists or not. No identifier - save is called, else update is called. Or for a better understanding, if the object is transient, then a save is called, if the object is persistent, then an update is called. Reattaching an unmodified instance - If you know for sure that an object is not modified and you just want to make it persistent again - Session.lock(item, LockMode.No
