More of this please.
 
"Our doors are open and will remain so until every addict who seeks help with their disease has treatment. You will always have a place to go as long as this police department stands."

That's the Police Chief of Gloucester, MA talking about their new drug program. They're calling it the Gloucester Initiative.

Here’s how Chief Len Campanello says it works:
"Gloucester will NOT charge any addict who comes to us for help.
We will fast track them in treatment and support their family. You will receive no judgment; just professionalism, respect and compassion."

The chief says "Addiction is a disease not a crime. We can’t arrest our way out of the epidemic.

The Gloucester Initiative has been in operation now for about a month.

And the Chief just posted this update on Facebook: "We have, as of midnight last night, taken in 55 persons with addiction.
All placed, all in treatment. We received great news today from our first intake...he is over 30 days clean and sober. We continue to encourage persons with addiction to come in and get help."

"The are no catches."

"We feel this program is the first day of the last recovery process a person with addiction will go through. We say this because we tell each of our program intakes that whatever they do after they walk into the police station, we will be there. Whether they are able to succeed or whether they relapse, we will be there. We will help again and again and again until they no longer want help."

"We know there will be setbacks for people."
"We don't care."
"Come back."
"You're still in recovery."

"We know some people will relapse."
"We will not judge you."
"Come back."
"You are still in recovery."

"Just as a cancer can go into remission only to appear later, we know addiction is hard to beat. 60 police officers, 40 Angels, and an entire community will have your back."

"You must do your part, but we will refuse to abandon you, forget you, or ignore you."

"You will receive the respect and dignity you deserve here, without judgment, without coercion, without charges."

"Your life has meaning."

"We are partnering with almost 30 treatment facilities who feel the same way."

"Not one person who has walked through our doors has been turned away."

Chief Len Campanello

“A reporter asked one of my officers last night:
‘Do you see a common thread in all addicts?’

Without hesitation, the officer responded:
‘Absolutely..they're all human beings.’

I just pushed 0.2 of bottlerocket to maven central.  Bottlerocket is a #Kotlin API for programmatically creating MongoDB clusters primarily for use in testing MongoDB based applications and libraries.  It's designed to be consumed naturally by Kotlin and Java code both.  The issues fixed and features added are linked below.

This is javascript focused but the concepts apply generally.  People get all up in arms about Java's verbosity and then point to ${language} with lots of symbols (usually overridden) and optional tokens in source code.  Code that's easier to read is easier to debug and maintain.  (For some value of "easy.")

using #jmh, if i have a list of queries in a file to benchmark, how would I set it up to iterate over that file and run benchmarks and generate reports for each query?  there's @Param for small, fixed datasets but i haven't found any resource on a dynamically defined dataset.  Any hints?

Now fans can only hear Neil Young on A.M. radio stations where they can hear Neil's music as it was originally meant to be heard.
Classic rocker Neil Young doesn't like how his songs sound on streaming services like Spotify, Google Play Music and others. That's the reason why he has made the decision to remove his song library from those services. Young posted his reasons behind this move on his official Facebook page, and as usual, he's very blunt: Streaming has ended for me. I hope this is ok for my fans...

Proper grammar would definitely be a big step forward.
