Many of the warning signs of a possible stroke (like a TIA) and symptoms of an actual stroke are the same. If any of these symptoms occur, you should seek medical attention right away and start appropriate treatment as quickly as possible. The sooner treatment begins, the more likely it is that brain function will be pre...

During the six weeks since the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry was announced, the liberal media have tried to help the cause by giving the effort wall-to-wall coverage, blasting the President with 96% negative coverage (even including criticism of his performance after the successful mission against ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi), even as they ignore how Trump’s policies have benefited the record-setting economy.

This allows for instant creation and startup of unprivileged containers as no costly filesystem remapping is needed on creatio...

Academics who conduct research on intelligence and human differences, or who comment on it, are being removed from their positions, either as faculty or university administrators, at an accelerating rate. This development is clear to those who follow such things, but it deserves closer examination so we can better understand it. For young academics interested in this kind of study, it is a critical area of research, not a growing archive of misco...

Promoting Hinduism? Parents Demand Removal Of School Yoga Class (www.npr.org)
Encinitas, Calif., is celebrated by many as the yoga mecca of America. But when the spiritual discipline was recently incorporated in a local school, a group of parents quickly likened it to religious indoctrination. They worry the new model will be exported to schools across the country.

Sweet Dreams and Nightmares > les Ailes d’Époque du Canada (www.vintagewings.ca)

The first group was taken in 1950 by famed LIFE magazine photographer Loomis Dean. These images, purporting to be of a wealthy man cavorting with family and a couple of beautiful women off the California coast on a luxury PBY Catalina, were in fact a staged event put on by the company that refitted th...

Packaging LXD for Arch Linux (linderud.dev)
With the release of 3.20, LXD was included into the community repository of Arch Linux in January, and has currently been sitting there happily for the past months. LXD is a container manager from Canonical that manages containers as if they where independent machines in a cluster. I have somehow taken to calling them “containers-as-machines”. This is in contrast to podman and docker which would be “containers-as-applications”. Think of lxd as ga...

Trying out `shiftfs` (discuss.linuxcontainers.org)
What’s shiftfs shiftfs is a kernel filesystem which was initially developed by James Bottomley, then stabilized and extended by @sforshee and @brauner. That filesystem acts like an overlay on top of an existing mount on the host and then allows mounting inside the container, shifting uid/gid on all filesystem operations. This allows for instant creation and startup of unprivileged containers as no costly filesystem remapping is needed on creatio...
What the latest with the zombie process reaping problem? (forums.docker.com)
Yes. That blog post is a pretty good description of the issue. If you control the application, and never launch a subprocess, it isn’t an issue; you can, with some care, reap zombies yourself as well. True, but options like -p and -e are all but required for standard use too. I’d think documenting --init as a recommended startup option is a reasonable answer. You can presumably install a lightweight init whatever other base image you’re us...

Kubernetes v1.12: Introducing RuntimeClass (kubernetes.io)
Author: Tim Allclair (Google) Kubernetes originally launched with support for Docker containers running native applications on a Linux host. Starting with rkt in Kubernetes 1.3 more runtimes were coming, which lead to the development of the Container Runtime Interface (CRI). Since then, the set of alternative runtimes has only expanded: projects like Kata Containers and gVisor were announced for stronger workload isolation, and Kubernetes' Window...
Container runtimes (kubernetes.io)
FEATURE STATE: Kubernetes v1.6 [stable] To run containers in Pods, Kubernetes uses a container runtime. Here are the installation instructions for various runtimes. Caution: A flaw was found in the way runc handled system file descriptors when running containers. A malicious container could use this flaw to overwrite contents of the runc binary and consequently run arbitrary commands on the container host system. Please refer to CVE-2019-5736 fo...
How Not to Do It: Liquid Nitrogen Tanks – Corante (corante.com)
A colleague of mine forwarded a copy of an accident report from Texas A&M.; It seems that in mid-January they had a bit of a blowout there, thanks to a big liquid nitrogen tank. Now, liquid nitrogen cylinders are normally fairly benign, as long as you don’t freeze your external organs off with the stuff or leave the liquid sitting around where it can condense oxygen out of the air. But idiocy will find a way – note the regular cylinder on the rig...

RFC8482 - Saying goodbye to ANY (blog.cloudflare.com)
Ladies and gentlemen, I would like you to welcome the new shiny RFC8482, which effectively deprecates DNS ANY query type. DNS ANY was a "meta-query" - think about it as a similar thing to the common A, AAAA, MX or SRV query types, but unlike these it wasn't a real query type - it was special.
