Memory segmentation

In computing, memory segmentation is one of the most common ways to achieve memory protection; another common one is paging. In a computer system using segmentation, an instruction operand that refers to a memory location includes a value that identifies a segment and an offset within that segment. A segment has a set of permissions, and a length, associated with it. If the currently running process is allowed by the permissions to make the type of reference to memory that it is attempting to make, and the offset within the segment is within the range specified by the length of the segment, the reference is permitted; otherwise, a hardware exception is raised.

Moreover, as well as its set of permissions and length, a segment also has associated with it information indicating where the segment is located in memory. It may also have a flag indicating whether the segment is present in main memory or not; if the segment is not present in main memory, an exception is raised, and the operating system will read the segment into memory from secondary storage. The information indicating where the segment is located in memory might be the address of the first location in the segment, or might be the address of a page table for the segment, if the segmentation is implemented with paging. In the first case, if a reference to a location within a segment is made, the offset within the segment will be added to address of the first location in the segment to give the address in memory of the referred-to item; in the second case, the offset of the segment is translated to a memory address using the page table.

In most systems in which a segment doesn't have a page table associated with it, the address of the first location in the segment is an address in main memory; in those systems, nopaging is done. In the Intel 80386 and later, that address can either be an address in main memory, if paging is not enabled, or an address in a paged "linear" address space, if paging is enabled.

memory management unit (MMU) is responsible for translating a segment and offset within that segment into a memory address, and for performing checks to make sure the translation can be done and that the reference to that segment and offset is permitted.

Partnership 2000 Hosts 72 Masa Israel Participants for a Day of Jewish Peoplehood Activities

Masa Israel participants in its annual Building Future Leadership Conference in Jerusalem enjoyed a full day of activities arranged by Partnership 2000 (Beit Shemesh-Mateh Yehuda-Washington-South Africa) in Bet Shemesh on March 8.
 
Highlight of the day was the interaction between the Masa Israel young adults and the first, second and third graders at Jabotinsky Elementary School. Together they created Shabat placements to share with their overseas friends in the Jewish Primary Day School in Washington, DC. The schools have been in the P2K school Twinning project for over three years.
 
As the Jabotinsky principal Bracha said, “It was hard at first for the Jabotinsky youngsters to realize that there were actually Jews who live outside Israel. Now through video conferencing they have accepted that, and this year we are focusing on the similarities and differences between how Israeli and American Jewish children celebrate the holidays.” Having actual committed Jewish young adults who live outside Israel come and do a project with the Jabotinsky students really helped them to understand not only that Jews do live outside Israel but that they also love Israel.
 
After completing the Jabotinsky project, Masa participants were joined by 17 Israeli young adults from Branco-Weiss High School, the P2K student program and a local Garin for an interviewing project to meet local residents and complete a worksheet about their family origins, life in Bet Shemesh, etc. In groups of 3 or 4, the young people spread out through Migdal Hamayim on market day to speak with vendors, cab drivers, pedestrians and others to get a taste of the variety of backgrounds and interests of local city inhabitants.
 
Next the Masa participants and local Israeli youth gathered at Matnas Psagot HaSheva where they broke into four groups to discuss various aspects of Jewish Peoplehood, based on their interview findings. They tackled some tough issues about Jewish identity, religious practices and enabling future generations to be informed and enthusiastic about being Jewish.
 
As one participant reported at the end of the day, “Through this experience I may not become a Jewish leader on my college campus next year, but I will be able to counter positively and powerfully any negative remarks made about Israel and Israelis.”
 
Note: Masa Israel sponsors numerous extended stay opportunities for youth from abroad to travel, study and do community service projects throughout the country. Over 10,000 young Jewish adults are in Israel this year in various Masa programs.
 

Leadership Training Program: Empowering the Next Generation

Leadership Training Program: Empowering the Next Generation

Masa Israel Journey’s Building Future Leadership program gives young adults tools and connections to make a difference in their communities
(New York, NY) – This week, 500 exceptional young adults will participate in Building Future Leadership, Masa Israel Journey’s intensive, weeklong leadership program in Israel.  Chosen from nearly 10,000 individuals from all over the world who are studying, interning, and volunteering in Israel, Building Future Leadership prepares young adults to fill leadership positions when they return to their campuses and communities.
 
With young adults’ increased interest in Jewish communal work following their time in Israel, Masa Israel, a joint project of the Government of Israel and the Jewish Agency for Israel, is committed to helping its alumni stay involved. Jewish campus and communal organizations are now actively seeking Masa Israel alumni to take leadership positions upon their return home.  Organizations involved in the Building Future Leadership program include the Jewish Federations of North America, the Israel on Campus Coalition, Hillel, PresenTense, and AVI CHAI.
 
“Masa Israel’s Building Future Leadership is one of the important ways that we are preparing young Jewish adults for future leadership opportunities following their immersive Israel experiences,” said Masa Israel’s North American Director, Avi Rubel.  “I believe that the growing pool of Masa Israel alumni will play a decisive role in connecting their peers to Israel and in strengthening their home Jewish communities.”
 
Building Future Leadership’s weeklong events include discussions about critical issues facing the Jewish people, leadership skill development sessions focused on entrepreneurship, public speaking, and networking, trips to the Knesset and Yad Vashem, and meetings with social activists and community leaders.  Participants can choose to focus on Israel education, Israel advocacy, social justice and tikkun olam, or Jewish peoplehood.
 
In the workshop, “From Vision to Reality,” participants will also be able to outline a project they hope to pursue in their home communities.
 
Last year, Jordana Gilman, a Nativ gap year participant, created a project focused on bringing interfaith programming to campus and connected with Cornell’s Hillel rabbi so that he would anticipate her arrival.  Now as chair of interfaith programming and Jewish education and culture at Hillel, Gilman is planning a civil rights seder.
 
“It was truly a growing experience for everyone, and it personally made me very excited for the next year,” said Gilman. “I came out of the conference with some solid, realistic, ready-for-action program plans and college-level leadership techniques.”
 
The Building Future Leadership program will take place in Jerusalem from March 6 – 11, 2011. A follow-up meeting will take place on May 23, 2011.
 
For more information about Building Future Leadership, contact Masa Israel’s Director of Public Relations, Rachel Trager at (917) 371-5569 or racheltr@masaisrael.org and visit www.masaisrael.org/bfl.

The past few weeks have been jam-packed. First, we had Israel today seminar, which was three days where we could choose what aspects of Israeli society to learn about. The first day I was in the group that went to see Gush Etzion, learned about its history, and talked to “Settler Bob” about what it is like and what is the significance of living in a settlement.
