If the COVID-19 pandemic wasn’t enough to scare you into giving up cigarettes, maybe a new study from the American Heart Association will be. The researchers focused specifically on premature deaths resulting from cardiovascular disease, a leading cause of death around the world and something that is all but inevitable for those who have a smoking habit. As it turns … Continue reading

With the past decade seeing renewed interest in artificial intelligence, research and publication in the field has grown immensely. And while publishing an AI paper online is not very difficult, it is acceptance and presentation at conferences such as NeurIPS, ICLR, CVPR, and ICML that give needed credit and exposure to the work done by researchers. Organizers of AI conferences face the mounting challenge of having many more submissions than they have space for. As a result, a small percentage of submitted papers make it to mainstream AI conferences. The question is, are AI conferences choosing the best research for… This story continues at The Next Web
Although not as common as towering desktops, the mini PC form factor has enjoyed increased popularity in recent years as consumers looked towards more general-purpose home computers. These relatively tiny PCs, however, are not exactly known for their performance and power, leaning more towards space-savings and power-efficiency, enough for basic computing tasks. MINISFORUM, however, has long been trying to move … Continue reading
Kubernetes has become the Swiss Army knife of distributed computing. Its role as an orchestrator that’s extensible and relatively easy to configure is key to managing applications at scale, ensuring your code runs with the required balance of resources. With a growing ecosystem of extensions, it works across everything, from the smallest devices to hyperscale clouds. In conjunction with service mesh, it provides a way of architecting and operating applications that separates them from both hardware and systems layers.Microsoft has been thinking a lot about what you can do with Kubernetes, using its Deis Labs team to incubate new Kubernetes tools and features, and often working in the open through the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. Some of the work has been on providing frameworks for building and testing Kubernetes code. Others have focused on alternative ways to scale and manage Kubernetes installs, from virtual kubelets to take advantage of hyperscale clouds to KEDA (Kubernetes event-driven autoscaling) and using events to drive scaling as well as resources.To read this article in full, please click here

People will die if the Home Office goes ahead with planned immigration rules allowing non-UK nationals to be deported for sleeping rough, outreach workers have warned. The government is set to introduce new powers at the end of the Brexit transition period that would mean rough sleepers’ UK status could be cancelled or refused if they turn down offers of support or engage in “persistent anti-social behaviour”. According to the Home Office – which insisted the rule would be used “sparingly” – this behaviour could include “aggressive begging” and street drinking. The proposed regulation has sparked a huge wave of anger from homelessness campaigners and charities, who say it will “dehumanise and criminalise” people for not having a home. Jon Glackin, who runs outreach project Streets Kitchen, called it a “vile, evil proposal”. “This will strike fear among all rough sleepers – people will be afraid to access services,” he told HuffPost UK. “People will die because of this.” This could happen in the UK, or after they’re sent back to their home country, he said. “We know people who have been sent back to Poland – cold countries – and have died on the streets.” The Outside Project has also raised concerns about what the new policy could mean for LGBTQ+ people sleeping rough, who face being sent back to countries which are becoming “increasingly hostile” to people from their community. “The Home Office is becoming increasingly hostile to migrants, but for some people a return to their country is extremely unsafe,” said outreach worker Harry Gay.“This is a disgraceful, harsh and deeply unethical policy announcement,” added Matt Turtle, from the Museum of Homelessness. “Not only that, but four years ago a similar move by the government was ruled unlawful by the High Court so it is very upsetting that they are trying to resurrect this flawed idea.”He continued: “The targeting of marginalised and destitute people who already face huge problems because of the hostile environment needs to end, and we will work tirelessly to make that happen.” Meanwhile, Glackin said that the government’s insistence that only people who refuse support will be affected was also misleading. “With all homelessness services, generally you are given one single offer.” Often, that offer is not suitable – or could put the person sleeping rough at risk, he said. This could be a woman offered housing in Manchester because she has connections in the area, despite the fact she has fled to London to escape her abusive partner. Or it could be someone with a drug issue offered a bed in a shelter that’s “full of drugs”.“If you refuse that offer, that’s you taken out of the system,” Glackin said. The new rule – which is set to come into force on January 1 – is made even more cruel by coming at a time when the UK is facing “a tsunami of homelessness”, Glackin said. “It’s going to be a dire winter.“We’re seeing more and more people losing their jobs, more and more people not being able to pay their rent, more and more homeless people.” It’s a thought that has been echoed by shadow home secretary Nick Thomas-Symonds. “These plans would be appalling at any moment, but what makes it even worse is putting this forward as we face the deepest recession in generations and in the middle of a global pandemic,” the Labour frontbencher said in a statement. “It’s completely unacceptable and tells you all you need to know about this morally bankrupt Tory government.”Homelessness charity Crisis said the government must end rough sleeping in the UK by offering housing and support, “rather than threatening deportation”. The Home Office’s new policy will push people facing homelessness “further into the fringe of society, rather than encouraging them to seek support”, chief executive Jon Sparkes said. “We know through our services that people who have no recourse to public funds because of their immigration status have little or no access to support in the first place, and are forced into rough sleeping if they are unable to work,” he explained.“This is a situation that will only worsen as the economic impact of the pandemic begins to bite.” A spokesperson for the government said ministers were “committed to transforming the lives of some of the most vulnerable in society and to ending rough sleeping for good”.“This year alone the government is spending over £700 million in total to tackle homelessness,” they said. “The new rules provide a discretionary basis to cancel or refuse a person’s leave where they are found to be rough sleeping and refuse offers of support or are engaged in persistent anti-social behaviour. “The new provision will be used sparingly and only where individuals refuse to engage with the range of support available.” Related...
