I am trying to get a copy of the example NCDC weather data used in the book, but encounter an error. There seems to be a problem in the security configuration of the S3 bucket containing the data.

In book it is mentioned that "Requests for map tasks are made first and with a higher priority than those for reduce tasks", while in actual hadoop requests for containers for reducers are of higher priority. The containers requests for map tasks are of higher priority only when they were retried(in case previous attempt of map task failed).
