Kubernetes: Up and Running
Dive into the Future of Infrastructure
By Kelsey Hightower

❝ Legend has it that Google deploys over a billion application containers a week. How is that possible? The company decided to share the process through an open source project called Kubernetes, which replicates many of the features found in its internal system. This practical book will prepare you to take advantage of everything the Kubernetes platform has to offer.

Rather than an exact copy of its internal Borg system, Kubernetes is an upgrade based on lessons Google learned over the last decade. Kubernetes is also designed to integrate with the most robust container ecosystem: Docker. Developers and Ops practitioners can easily deploy a demo Kubernetes environment and kick the tires, but when it comes time to scale to hundreds of nodes, you’re going to need a reliable field guide: *Kubernetes: Up and Running*. ❞

I should add that this is still being written.

The bombing of the Rainbow Warrior
In 1985, the Greenpeace Rainbow Warrior was bombed by French secret service agents, tragically killing Greenpeace photographer Fernando Pereira. The ship and crew were in Auckland protesting nuclear testing in the Pacific. This is their story.

Today +Greenpeace Australia Pacific recognise a landmark moment in Greenpeace’s story with a special message from Captain Pete Willcox, live from on board the Rainbow Warrior:

I am on the deck of the Rainbow Warrior ship, sailing along the Great Barrier Reef as part of the global campaign to protect this amazing natural wonder.

And I want to say thank you for making that happen.

"It is thirty years today since the French secret service exploded two bombs under the first Rainbow Warrior, sinking our beloved ship in Auckland harbour and killing our good friend Fernando Pereira.

I was captain that day and the memory will never leave me. We were campaigning to stop the French government from testing nuclear bombs and they were determined to silence us.

Thankfully, they did not. Millions of people around the world who supported Greenpeace made sure that even in the face of such a deadly attack, we did not stay quiet.

That attack drew more people to Greenpeace and, more importantly, helped us win. Money was raised to buy the next Rainbow Warrior, which returned to the Pacific year after year until nuclear testing ended in 1996.  

Over the last 30 years, our ships have been central to campaigns to stop whaling, bring an end to dumping nuclear waste at sea, ban destructive driftnets and expose the deadly trade in toxic waste. We’ve confronted illegal fishing vessels, found evidence of dodgy timber smuggled across the ocean from the Amazon -- and donated the ships for humanitarian relief work.

But we could not have done it without you. That’s why today I’d like to pay tribute to you and supporters in over 190 countries who’ve been a relentless, powerful voice for this fragile planet:  

Today we can be thankful that the nuclear threat no longer hangs over the Pacific — but climate change has become the biggest threat our planet faces. It threatens this beautiful Reef that I am floating on right now. Which makes it all the more shocking that the Australian government is still pushing for a coal mine and port expansion which further risks the Reef.

The Rainbow Warrior has been a constant presence and I am honoured to sail her for you. This ship will continue to campaign against the biggest threats to our planet, the air we breathe, and our climate. And together, we’ll protect this glorious Reef.

Once again, thank you Greenpeace supporters. Not just for being part of this — but also for making it possible.

The high points of +Sony A7R II read like a wish list of everything photographers have wanted:

– Full frame 42.4MP BSI CMOS sensor
– rugged 500,000 actuation shutter with an electronic front curtain and silent mode
– 5 axis sensor-based image stabilization
– a new body based on the excellent design of the recent A7 II, which finally gets rid of the infamous Sony interface gremlins
– ISO to 102400
– 4K video in-camera video recording, with Super 35mm crop mode or full-frame mode without pixel binning
– S-log 2 gamma
– fast on-sensor phase detection
– 5 FPS raw shooting, articulated LCD, high-res EVF, and on, and on, and on

In other words.. the whole nine yards. Everything but the kitchen sink. You asked for it, – you got it. Think of a cliche.
...
Nicely done Sony. You’ve done the industry a favour. Maybe the big boys will now realize that a time like now, when the industry is in a serious transition is not the time to be faint hearted, but rather a time to innovate and give the photographic community products that meet their needs, and as importantly, excite. —+Michael Reichmann

Putting it All On The Table This rant will be brief, because it’s so obvious. Yesterday (June 10, 2015) Sony kicked some serious butt with the announcement of the A7R II. That Sony was going to reach for the top position in the Mirrorless segment was a given for some time. But that they would [Read More]

Adaan being called in a church in America:

A Christian American group, calling for peace, decided to select Adaan in their church gathering. They chose Adaan because they said it has great spiritual effect on souls.

They approached an Islamic Centre and requested for someone to come to their church and recite Adaan as part of their annual ceremony in a very big cathedral.

A young man was nominated. He said he hesitated a great deal and performed Istikhara prayer then agreed to take part and attend the ceremony in the full Arabic dress.

He says, "Adaan had a great impact on them. They were stunned and as soon as I finished, many of them followed me outside the church leaving the ceremony. They cried and asked me to translate azan that had had a great impact on their souls."

Container Hacks and Fun Images by +Jessica Frazelle 

Explore some of the more interesting things you can containerise on +Linux and Windows. View first hand different workflows for how to run/build different apps in containers. Jessie will cover desktop apps as well as some other apps you would have never thought could run in a container.

+Docker is an open-source engine that automates the deployment of any application as a lightweight, portable, self-sufficient container that will run virtually anywhere.

Docker containers can encapsulate any payload, and will run consistently on and between virtually any server. The same container that a developer builds and tests on a laptop will run at scale, in production, on VMs, bare-metal servers, OpenStack clusters, public instances, or combinations of the above.

Remembering Hermann Zapf
As a type designer, calligrapher, author and teacher, Zapf was unique.

His eye for harmony and detail was uncanny; his flexibility in designing for changing technologies exemplary. In a career spanning over seven decades, Zapf designed dozens of timeless classics, including the Palatino, Optima, and Zapfino typeface families — types that were modern yet true to tradition, and always elegant. He is survived by his widow, fellow type designer, calligrapher and bookbinder Gudrun Zapf-von Hesse, now 97. These past few weeks, we interviewed some of the people who knew him well — type designers who worked in close collaboration with a man they admired and loved. —+MyFonts

Introduction
Briefly: INTJ (NT)! ...take it with a pinch of salt, please! :-)

Things I share may fall under a variety of topics:
    — film, photography, diving, biking
    — information technology, science
    — jazz, art, literature, architecture
    — anthropology, philosophy, theology
    — unix, Linux, Android news & development
    — ITSM, EA, ESA, IT Gov, Project Mgt, IT Mgt, I&O Mgt
    — environment, social science & occasional political topics

I have opinions on many things, and sometimes keep them to myself. But at other times I surprise myself posting topics that may be critical of commonly held beliefs! And here are a few words to all the Internet Philosophers, and then some to all the Internet Poets out there!

By the way, I use the Oxford comma, but very carefully & and I do respect the comma, a lot!

Follow at your own risk; and before you judge me, make sure you're perfect! ;-)

Noteviews & opinions expressed here are my own, and not my employers', present or past; no other party necessarily agrees with them (views) either!
