Manual trigger with Github Actions

  • With my solution, once you'll have it set up, the ⭐️ button of your GitHub repository will trigger a build every time YOU (and only you) will star the repository.
  • If we combine that by a useful advice from Samira in Stack Overflow, you can launch your workflow only if it's the owner who trigger the action.
  • For example you can set your workflow with the watch event and on each push, to have the both ways.
  • Don't forget that if you want to re-run a workflow which have failed, you can re-run all the checks with a UI button set for a failed workflow just like that...
  • Don't forget that the ⭐️ button launch the workflow from the default branch (master) only.
  • GitHub just released their action APIs which should allow soon either GitHub or browser extensions to add "trigger workflow" buttons on their UI.

Washington Post reinstates reporter who it suspended over Kobe Bryant tweets, saying she didn't violate policy

  • New York (CNN Business) - A top editor at The Washington Post said Tuesday that a reporter who was suspended for tweets she posted in the immediate aftermath of Kobe Bryant's death had not violated the newspaper's social media policy.
  • The reporter, Felicia Sonmez, faced a fierce backlash online after she tweeted a 2016 Daily Beast story — just hours following news of the basketball legend's tragic helicopter crash— that detailed a sexual assault allegation made against him.
  • Bryant was accused in 2003 of sexual assault, but the criminal charge was later dropped.
  • The Post said on Monday that Sonmez had been placed on administrative leave while it reviewed whether her tweets violated the newspaper's policies — an action that was widely criticized by journalists, including The Post's media critic Erik Wemple.
  • A spokesperson for The Post added to CNN Business that Sonmez had been reinstated.

People are flooding TikTok with Kobe Bryant tributes, but critics say some posts cross the line

  • Some of the most popular videos show alleged footage of the helicopter crash, a presumed dialogue between Kobe and Gianna in heaven, videos of fans crying, or montages of the Bryant family and Kobe during games.
  • Users like 17-year-old Destin Davis from Indianapolis, Indiana was one of the many TikTok accounts to post his own interpretation of Kobe in heaven.
  • His video shows him dressed in a jean jacket with the caption "Kobe walking into heaven," followed by clips of Davis acting as other famous artists like Avicii and Stan Lee greeting Bryant.
  • Coratolo's TikTok, with 27,000 likes, is a photo montage of Bryant's time in Italy and starts with the caption, "Many people don't know this fact about Kobe." While it's true that Bryant did live in Italy between the ages of six and 13, many TikTok users have also received negative comments for posting videos with false information.

Understanding the Key Differences Between PUT and POST

  • The POST method requests that the target resource process the representation enclosed in the request according to the resource's own specific semantics.
  • The PUT method requests that the state of the target resource be created or replaced with the state defined by the representation enclosed in the request message payload.
  • So this one is a bit more specific in that the intention of a PUT is for the target resource to be create or replaced based on the state provided (aka the request body).
  • If the target resource does not have a current representation and the PUT successfully creates one, then the origin server MUST inform the user agent by sending a 201 (Created) response.
  • Regardless of the response code returned, the important thing is that if I call this endpoint 1 time or 100 times, it always results in the same outcome, replacing what was there with what I've provided.

Mamba Mentality | By Kobe Bryant

  • I was so enamored with the ball that I didn’t actually want to bounce it or use it, because I didn’t want to ruin the pebbled leather grains or the perfect grooves.
  • When Allen was covering me, I’d receive the ball in favorable locations, in attacking positions like the mid-post, because he couldn’t stop me from catching a pass.
  • I chose not to catch the ball in the post, because the Sixers would have just fronted and trapped me.
  • By catching it on the elbow or mid-wing, I mitigate all of these schemes, because they couldn’t front me on the pass and I didn’t need to dribble to get an open look over the top of him.
  • I came into the locker room at half-time and asked the guys—in a less PG manner—what in the hell we were doing.

Stop Praising Doom Eternal for Being Microtransaction-Free

  • It's tempting to praise Doom Eternal for being microtransaction-free, but there's a problem when the absence of monetization is news.
  • Doom Eternal is once again in the news in the wake of comments from creative director Hugo Martin around the total absence of microtransactions from the game.
  • Eternal is a $60 game, not a free to play game or a mobile game – we are giving you a complete experience with no store just like you’d expect.
  • In a testament to just how twisted consumer expectations have become as a consequence of the widespread prevalence of monetization in video games in recent years, it’s now news when a developer doesn’t include them.
  • The aim here isn’t to devalue id Software’s decision to make Doom Eternal microtransaction-free, but rather to highlight a strange state of affairs.

Kobe Bryant tweet turns into trouble for the Washington Post

  • If media companies can’t handle complaints about their reporters’ tweets, they should take Twitter away from their reporters.
  • Everyone wants to know why the Post has punished one of its reporters for tweeting about Kobe Bryant after his death yesterday.
  • My answer: It’s 2020, and Twitter — really, all of social media — remains something that media companies of all stripes can and will screw up.
  • You can get a full tick-tock on the Post/Bryant/Twitter story from my colleague Emily Stewart, but the tl;dr is that the Post put reporter Felicia Sonmez on “administrative leave” after she tweeted in the wake of Bryant’s death on Sunday.
  • Perhaps they also think it’s crucial to “maintain a vibrant presence on social media,” as the Times policy suggests.
