Watch live: The future of Kubernetes top of mind at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA 2020

The Kubernetes story in 2020 is not so much about how it has become ubiquitous in enterprise computing, but rather how the groundwork is being laid for it to disappear.

The popular container orchestration tool has continued its massive growth path, with 91% of companies reporting adoption and 75% use within enterprise production environments, according to a recent StackRox Inc. report. Yet, the real action surrounding Kubernetes involved a trend that became more noticeable a year ago during KubeCon 2019 in San Diego. There it became apparent that the Kubernetes’ future resided in the land of abstractions, being able to manage away complexity and reduce dependence on the infrastructure to get work done.

“Kubernetes has become a fundamental ingredient of cloud automation and scalability,” said David Floyer, co-founder and chief technology officer at Wikibon Inc. “It has also become a lynchpin of bringing cloud native capabilities across clouds and

How will COVID-19 affect our next generation? In-utero exposure to the coronavirus pandemic could cause developmental difficulties and accelerated aging in the century ahead, say researchers — ScienceDaily

Exposure to COVID-19 could pose a risk to the health and aging of individuals who aren’t even born yet, according to a newly published analysis by USC researchers.

In the article, University Professors Eileen Crimmins and Caleb Finch of the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology and Keck School of Medicine neonatology fellow Molly Easterlin note that by the end of 2020, approximately 300,000 infants could be born to mothers infected by SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Millions more will be born into families who have experienced tremendous stress and upheaval due to the pandemic even if they haven’t been infected themselves, the authors added.

While the longer-term effects of COVID-19 on infants is yet to be seen, researchers can find some insight from the past, including the 1918 flu pandemic and previous coronavirus illnesses such as SARS in 2002 and MERS in 2012, Finch said.

“The 1918 influenza

The Leonid meteor shower of 2020 peaks tonight! Here’s what to expect.

One of the most famous annual meteor showers is reaching its peak — the Leonids. These ultrafast meteors are due to crest overnight tonight and into early Tuesday morning (Nov. 16-17).  

The Leonids are known for producing some of the most amazing meteor displays in the annals of astronomy. Most notable are meteor storms in 1799, 1833 and 1966, when meteor rates of tens of thousands per hour were observed. More recently, in 1999, 2001 and 2002, lesser Leonid displays of “only” a few thousand meteors per hour took place.

Unfortunately, those turn-of-the-century showers gave some skywatchers the impression that they could expect a similar occurrence of celestial fireworks from the Leonids every year. So, it is important to stress at the outset that any suggestion of a spectacular meteor Leonid display this year is, to put it mildly, overly optimistic.

The U.S. Cardinal Crusading Against the Catholic President-Elect

ROME—When then-candidate John F. Kennedy gave his landmark stump speech to the Houston Ministers Conference in September 1960, he stressed that he was “not the Catholic candidate for president.” He insisted instead, “I am the Democratic Party’s candidate for president who happens also to be a Catholic. I do not speak for my church on public matters—and the church does not speak for me.”The Plot to Bring Down Pope FrancisTwo months later, JFK was elected the first Catholic president of the United States amid fears that his presidency would be guided by the Vatican and Pope John XXIII and warnings that he might compromise the separation of church and state—none of which happened. Sixty years later, Joe Biden is the second Catholic ever to win the presidency, and this time the criticism isn’t from outside the Catholic Church, but
