Can you please explain these 'concern's?

1---Issues that are the specific concern of the database system itself (for example, does that system have a concept of data ownership?)

Quote:
concern
a matter of interest or importance to someone.
"housing is the concern of the Housing Executive


2- Analyzing an algorithm has come to mean predicting the resources that the algorithm requires. Occasionally, resources such as memory, communication bandwidth, or computer hardware are of primary concern, but most often it is computational time that we want to measure.


Quote:
Definition of 'of concern'
of concern
PHRASE
If something is of concern to someone, they find it worrying and unsatisfactory.
Any injury to a child is a cause of great concern to us.
The survey's findings are a matter of great concern..

"his book should be of interest to historians"


3- Comfort is not concerning ourselves about our status in the estimation of others.

to relate to;
be connected with;
be about:
[not: be + ~-ing]This next episode concerns our hero trying to rescue the heroine



So are all these three different with each other?

For example here it's #1 or #2?

I don't understand this "of" at all?

What does "be of" means?
Would "apples are of my favorite" work too?



We have concerns, sometimes expressed as worries, or fears. Some of our concerns are very important to us. They are a primary concern. Something that comes from our primary concern would be given a name. This sentence says that cyclones are things that come from, or are of, our primary concern.

Sorry FounDit, which meaning of 'concern' is used?

Can you please explain 'self-contained'?

This chapter will familiarize you with the framework we shall use throughout the book to think about the design and analysis of algorithms. It is self-contained, but it does include several references to material that we introduce in Chapters 3 and 4.

Like the government spends money on 'defence' or 'education' - sectors of public spending.


It doesn't work 'pay for public health' . Because you don't buy public health. You pay staff, and fund education campaigns, and build hospitals, and buy equipment, all to provide a health service to the public. That is money the government is spending.

You don't pay for health. You either have it or you don't. But you can spend money on your health, and the government spends money on public health services.


I think the argument is that food companies make money from sugary foods, which damage the health of the populace. It is primarily the government that has to spend extra money on public health services as a consequence, so they should have the power to prevent that happening so much.


Although it is taxpayers' money they are spending of course. And the voters who ultimately get to decide if they want their fizzy drinks to be made more expensive by a sugar tax. .
