Disney CEO Bob Iger resigns from Apple’s board of directors

Disney CEO Bob Iger has resigned from Apple’s board of directors, according to a just-published SEC filing.
Neither company has given any reason for the departure — the explanatory text of the SEC filing is literally just “On September 10, 2019, Bob Iger resigned from the Board of Directors of Apple Inc.” — but with Disney and Apple both prepping to launch their own video streaming services in November, it may be that there’s starting to be too much overlap. Given that the services are called “Disney+” and “Apple TV+” respectively, it’s easy to see where things might start to get too muddled.
Iger originally joined Apple’s board in November of 2011.
Apple’s Board of Directors now has seven members: Chairman Arthur D. Levinson (CEO of Alphabet’s biotech R&D company Calico), James A. Bell (the former CFO of Boeing), Al Gore, Andrea Jung (CEO of Grameen America), Ronald Sugar (Former CEO Northtrop Grumman),

Secure APIs by using OAuth 2.0

This tutorial shows you how to implement OAuth 2.0 schemes that are available in IBM API Connect to secure an API.
IBM API Connect provides two implementation modes, each of which provide different OAuth 2.0 schemes:
Confidential mode. A Confidential mode is suitable when an application is capable of maintaining the secrecy of the client secret. Use confidential mode when an application is capable of maintaining the secrecy of the client secret. This is usually the case when an application runs in a browser and accesses its own server when obtaining OAuth access tokens. As such, these schemes make use of the client secret. In the Confidential mode, we have three OAuth schemes: Application, Password and Access code.

Public mode. A Public mode is suitable when an application is incapable of maintaining the secrecy of the client secret. This is usually the case when the application is native on a computer or mobile

Since it turns out that posts on geeky blogs, now matter how well-reasoned and impassioned, tend not to bring about major structural changes in our legal system, Ed (now also known
