IT leaders need to update their own skills and practices to successfully lead transformations during the Kubernetes revolution that is currently dominating journeys to well-engineered DevOps solutions. I indicated in my prior article, Engineering DevOps with Kubernetes, that there are lot of benefits for all nine pillars of DevOps. This

Our editor-in-chief obviously hates me. That's the only conclusion I could reach after he asked me to watch an abysmal attack video targeting renewable energy—a video produced by a notorious source of right-wing misinformation.
But despite its bizarre mishmash of irrelevancies and misdirection, the video has been widely shared on social media. Perhaps you've seen it, or maybe you just to want to be ready when a family member brings it up in an argument. What, if anything, is true in this farrago of bad faith?
Yes, it’s awful
The video is hosted by "Prager University." My only previous exposure to the organization's videos had been this excellent one on the Confederacy by Colonel Ty Seidule, a professor of History at West Point who has since been placed on the Pentagon commission that will examine bases named after Confederate generals. Seemed legit!
[ASAP] Nickel-Catalyzed Reversible Functional Group Metathesis between Aryl Nitriles and Aryl Thioethers
Spontaneous interface engineering for dopant-free poly (3-hexylthiophene) perovskite solar cells with efficiency over 24 %
DOI: 10.1039/D0EE03312J, Paper
Halide perovskite solar cells (PSCs) have recently shown a leap forward in performance by reducing the recombination loss at the interface between the perovskite and hole-transporting layers through surface treatment....

Nature Communications, Published online: 02 March 2021; doi:10.1038/s41467-021-21633-2Site-selective C–H functionalization still faces some challenges, such as the introduction and removal of an appropriate directing group. Here, the authors introduce a temporary directing group for selective meta-C–H functionalization of 2-arylbenzaldehydes via reversible imine formation.
If you've ever wondered what John Cleese's favorite comedy sketch that he was involved with, it's this one, co-starring the great Marty Feldman.
It's somewhat surprising that Cleese's favorite is not from Monty Python, but rather, the At Last The 1948 Show. — Read the rest
The founder of the far-right social media platform Gab said that the private account of former President Donald Trump was among the data stolen and publicly released by hackers who recently breached the site.
In a statement on Sunday, founder Andrew Torba used a transphobic slur to refer to Emma Best, the co-founder of Distributed Denial of Secrets. The statement confirmed claims the WikiLeaks-style group made on Monday that it obtained 70GB of passwords, private posts, and more from Gab and was making them available to select researchers and journalists. The data, Best said, was provided by an unidentified hacker who breached Gab by exploiting a SQL-injection vulnerability in its code.
"My account and Trump's account were compromised, of course as Trump is about to go on stage and speak," Torba wrote on Sunday as Trump was about to speak at the CPAC conference in Florida. "The entire company is all hands investigating what happened and working to trace and patch the problem."
Art director Riana McKeith is watching Wandavision, each episode of which takes place in a different time period from the 50s to the present day. As a loving homage, she’s illustrating scenes from the show in the style of cartoons from each time period. Here’s the first episode, which takes place in the 50s a la I Love Lucy or Leave It to Beaver:
I don’t know enough about 50s cartoons to do more than guess at the inspiration of that one (Hanna Barbera? Looney Tunes?) but her 60s scene is obviously inspired by The Jetsons and The Flintstones:
My kids and I are obsessed with Wandavision — it’s a big ol’ love letter to television — and this project is the perfect complement to the show.Tags: animation Avengers remix Riana McKeith TV Wandavision
After the CPAC singer murdered the National Anthem, pianist Brandon Ethridge brought the dead back to life by accompanying the song in the key of F, F#, G, and G –. Now it actually sounds pretty good!
In 1697, a man named Jacques Sennacque wrote a letter to his cousin, a French merchant named Pierre Le Pers, requesting a certified death certificate for another man named Daniel Le Pers (presumably also a relation). Sennacque sealed the letter with an intricate folding method known as "letterlocking," a type of physical cryptography, to safeguard the contents from prying eyes. That letter was never delivered or opened. More than 300 years later, researchers have virtually "unlocked" the letter to reveal its contents for the first time, right down to the watermark in the shape of a bird. They described their results in a new paper published in the journal Nature Communications.
Co-author Jana Dambrogio, a conservator at MIT Libraries, coined the term "letterlocking" after discovering such letters while a fellow at the Vatican Secret Archives in 2000. The Vatican letters dated back to the 15th and 16th centuries, and they featured strange slits and corners that had been sliced off. Dambrogio realized that the letters had originally been folded in an ingenious manner, essentially "locked" by inserting a slice of the paper into a slit, then sealing it with wax. It would not have been possible to open the letter without ripping that slice of paper—evidence that the letter had been tampered with.
Dambrogio has been studying the practice of letterlocking ever since, often creating her own models to showcase different techniques. The practice dates back to the 13th century—at least in Western history—and there are many different folding and locking techniques that emerged over the centuries. Queen Elizabeth I, Machiavelli, Galileo Galilei, and Marie Antoinette are among the famous personages known to have employed letterlocking for their correspondence.
