Data Center Networks are Getting Faster and Smarter

  • DCK spent a part of August looking at some of the trends in data center network technology, examining in addition to speed the way some networking innovation by operators of hyperscale cloud platforms like Facebook has been seeping into the enterprise data center market.
  • In another report, Branscombe highlighted the growing amount of attention enterprise operators now pay to automating network management and being able to apply the DevOps principles to their work, so they can better support the teams of developers that write software that runs on top of their infrastructure.
  • Looking to take network automation even further, incumbent vendors and a handful of startups are actively working on technologies that support the concept of Intent-Based Networking, or IBN – the idea that networks could tune themselves based on policies set by the administrators, removing the need for all the manual network management processes used today.

Changelog: Github PR Liquid Tag Support

  • Last week I made an issue on Github thinking there was a bug with the Github liquid tag because it was giving me an error when I was trying to embed a Github Pull Request.
  • Sunday I started setting up my Ruby environment, I have no previous experience with Ruby so this was a bit of a challenge but with Google and following the DEV installation documentation I was able to get it all up and running.
  • Now the big surprise (to me) was when I tried to commit, Husky lint-staged pre-commit hook ran over the code and it gave me errors.
  • So I assume that there have been people in the past that have used --no-verify to commit changes without running the pre-commit hook and didn't follow project standards.

The children striking over climate change speak to New Scientist

  • Thousands of children across the UK have gone on strike from school today as part of global protests over climate change.
  • The organisers, Youth Strike 4 Climate, say strikes are taking place in 60 towns and cities across the country, from Cornwall to the Scottish Highlands, in the face of “an alarming lack of government leadership” on climate change.
  • At the London arm of the protest in Parliament Square this morning, several thousand children and young adults vented their frustration about the lack of climate action and voiced their fears for the future.
  • It was inspired by Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old girl who protests every Friday outside Sweden’s parliament to urge leaders to tackle climate change.
  • Students in the UK are demanding the government declares a climate emergency and takes active steps to tackle the problem, communicates the severity of the ecological crisis to the public and reforms the curriculum to make it an educational priority.

Independents believe Morrison has got it wrong on refugees

  • Just 36 hours after Parliament watered down Coalition government rules for evacuating sick refugees from Nauru, Zali Steggall, the one-time world ski champion taking on Tony Abbott in his Sydney seat of Warringah, chatted to local commuters boarding express buses.
  • At the same time, however, victories by two or three more female candidates standing as independents in seats like, say, Warringah and Flinders, could increase the number of lower house crossbench MPs to nine or even 10 – a result that would obviously limit the chances for a Coalition victory.
  • McGowan's against-all-odds victory, at a time when Abbott led the Coalition to a landslide win, not only inspired the formation of community groups in Warringah, but established the template for moderate female independent candidates throughout the country.

Network 10 boss Paul Anderson confident of selling a summer alternative to sport

  • Network 10 chief executive Paul Anderson is confident the CBS-owned broadcaster can take a larger slice of advertising revenue next summer after kicking off its entertainment schedule early this year when it lost broadcast rights to the Big Bash League.
  • After ending up with no sport over summer, Mr Anderson, speaking following CBS's full-year result on Friday, said Ten had sought to change direction, offering an alternative for viewers looking for entertainment rather than sport over the summer months, which are not included in the ratings year.
  • Ten launched reality show I'm a Celebrity in mid-January, two weeks ahead of rivals Nine and Seven launching their major reality shows Married at First Sight and My Kitchen Rules.
  • Its launch of Changing Rooms on Wednesday fell flat against Married at First Sight, which is having a record year, and My Kitchen Rules.

Brexit needs a consitutional convention

  • One example made famous in the media was the Supreme Court case considering whether the UK Government could even enact Brexit (id est, trigger Article 50 to withdrawal from the European Union) without the consent of Parliament 2.
  • But Brexit requires this decision-making process to be changed, and, because of tight legal deadlines, there is little time to debate what a new structure would look like.
  • In 1911 Parliament passed the Parliament Act - a change to constitutional law - to limit the powers of the unelected House after a series of major political disagreements.
  • The Brexit Assembly should have the power to form its own committees and appoint its own officers and envoys to the European Union, though it could not pass any legislation or appoint any government ministers.

Atlantic City Is Really Going Down This Time

  • A little more than two years ago, when I was an intern at a now shuttered website called The Awl, I went out to Atlantic City to cover the Trump Taj Mahal’s last weekend before it closed for good.
  • Dichter’s plan was more modest than David Green’s, but the foundational idea was the same: Atlantic City is really going down this time, the question is whether it can figure out a way to make the transition less painful.
  • The first climate conference took place the weekend of January 25th at the Claridge Hotel, and Dichter has been speaking with David Green about the way things might progress, but it’s been slow going so far.

U.K. Parliament Throws Out May's Plan to Renegotiate Brexit Deal

  • The House of Commons voted on Thursday by 303 to 258 against a motion endorsing the prime minister’s approach to resolving the Brexit deadlock, after a revolt from Euroskeptics in her Conservative Party.
  • Pro-Brexit Tories want the backstop to be stripped out of the divorce deal, while EU leaders say they won’t change the text.
  • Earlier on Thursday, May’s office urged members of Parliament to back her motion and send “another clear message” to Brussels that Britain needs changes to be made to the deal.
  • That’s because the Commons is deeply divided between those politicians who want to leave the EU in a clean split — even if it means a no-deal divorce — and others who would rather stay close to the bloc, and even hope to stop Brexit.
