Canadian golfers on LPGA PGA Tours show support for victims of Humboldt

first_imgCanadian golfers and their caddies are wearing green and gold ribbons at the LPGA’s Lotte Championship this week to honour the victims of the deadly bus crash involving the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team.Hamilton’s Alena Sharp posted a picture on Twitter of one of the ribbons pinned to the side of her hat.She says all the other Canadians at the Hawaiian tournament were similarly showing support.Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ont., Anne-Catherine Tanguay of Quebec City and Maude-Aimee Leblanc of Sherbrooke, Que., are the other Canadians at the Lotte Championship, which began Wednesday at Ko Olina Golf Club.Canadians on other golf tours also showed their support, with PGA golfer Nick Taylor of Abbotsford, B.C., offering to donate money for every hole under par at this week’s RBC Heritage in South Carolina, while the Canadian golfers at last week’s Symetra Tour event pinned green ribbons on their hats.Sixteen people were killed when the Broncos’ bus collided with a semi truck Friday in northern Saskatchewan. Thirteen other people were injured.last_img read more

Firefighter reach 90 containment on 60acre wildfire near Pala Casino

first_imgFirefighter reach 90% containment on 60-acre wildfire near Pala Casino PAUMA VALLEY (KUSI) — Crews dousing the smoldering remnants of a roughly 60-acre wildfire near Pala Casino had the burn area about 90 percent contained Thursday morning.The non-injury blaze erupted for unknown reasons about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday off the 13000 block of state Route 76 in the Pauma Valley area, according to Cal Fire. Two residents were evacuated from the rural area as the flames began to spread across open terrain, but both were allowed to return home after about 90 minutes.Within three hours of igniting and sending thick black smoke billowing over the North County, the flames had blackened an estimated 50 acres, Cal Fire said. By then, crews from several area firefighting agencies had the burn area roughly 10 percent contained.Containment reached 15 percent as of 9 p.m. Tuesday, when fire crews had all active flames in the burn zone extinguished, the state firefighting agency said. It was 40 percent contained as of 6 a.m. Wednesday and 85 percent contained by about 6 p.m. Wednesday.About 150 firefighters, including crews aboard fixed-wing aircraft and water-dropping helicopters, were deployed at the height of the fire-suppression effort Tuesday afternoon and evening. Roughly 100 firefighters worked to mop up and contain the blaze Wednesday.It was dubbed the Agua Fire due to its proximity to seasonal Agua Tibia Creek. The cause of the blaze is under investigation.

Nestle Withdraws Maggi Noodles Stock Maintains its Safe

first_imgNestle India early on Friday said it was withdrawing Maggi noodles in the country amid nation-wide scrutiny over more-than-permissible limits of lead, but continued to maintain it was safe and that it would be back on store shelves soon.”Maggi noodles are completely safe and have been trusted in India for over 30 years. The trust of our consumers and the safety of our products is our first priority,” the company said in a statement in the early hours of Friday.”Unfortunately, recent developments and concerns about the product have led to an environment of confusion for the consumer, to such an extent that we have decided to withdraw the product off the shelves, despite the product being safe,” it said.”We promise that the trusted Maggi Noodles will be back in the market as soon as the current situation is clarified.”Some governments like in Gujarat, Delhi and Jammu and Kashmir had banned Maggi for 15-30 days and several others had called for tests on the popular noodles after a batch in a small town in Uttar Pradesh was allegedly found to contain higher-than-permissible levels of lead.Following the concerns, a host of retailers — from neighbourhood mom-and-pop shops to larger ones like Big Bazaar and WalMart — withdrew it from their shelves.last_img read more

Kelsey Hightower on Serverless and Security on Kubernetes at KubeCon CloudNativeCon

first_imgIn a stream hosted earlier this week by The New Stack, Kelsey Hightower, developer advocate, Google Cloud Platform, talked about the serverless and security aspects of Kubernetes. The stream was from KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2018. What are you exploring right now with respect to serverless? There are many managed services these days. Database, security etc is fully managed i.e., serverless. People have been on this trajectory for a while if you consider DNS, email, and even Salesforce. Now we have serverless since managed services are ‘eating that world as well’. That world being the server side world and related workloads. How are managed services eating the server side world? If someone has to run and build an API, one approach would be to use Kubernetes and manage the cluster and build the container, run it on Kubernetes and manage that. Even if it a fully managed cluster, you may still have to manage the things around Kubernetes. Another approach is to deal with a higher form of extraction. Serverless is coupled often with FaaS (Function as a Service). There are a lot of abstractions in terms of resources, i.e., resources are abstracted more these days. Hightower talks about a test: “If I walk up to a platform and the delta between me and my code is short, you’re probably closer to the serverless mindset.” This is different from creating a VM, then installing something, configuring something, and then running some code—this is not really serverless. Serverless in a Kubernetes context The point of view should be—can we improve the experience on Kubernetes by adopting some things from serverless? You can add a layer that does functions, so developers can stop worrying about containers and focus on the source. The big picture is—who autoscales the whole cluster? Kubernetes and just an additional layer can’t really be called serverless but it is going in that direction. Over time, if you do enough so that people don’t have to think about or even know that Kubernetes is there, you’re getting closer to being truly serverless. Security in Kubernetes Hightower loves the granular controls of serverless technologies. Comparing the serverless security model to other models For a long time in the industry, companies have been trying to do a least privilege approach. That is, limiting the access of applications so that it can perform only a specific action that is required. So if one server is compromised and it does not have access to anything else, then the effects are isolated. The Kubernetes approach can be different. The cloud providers try to make sure that all the credentials needed to do important things are segmented from VM, cloud functions, app engine or Kubernetes. Imagine if Kubernetes is where everything lives free. Instead of one machine being taken down, it is now easier for the whole cluster to be taken down in one shot. This is called ‘broadening the blast radius’. If you have Kubernetes and you give it keys to everything in your cluster, then everything is compromised when the Kubernetes API is compromised. Having just one cluster trades off on security. Another approach to serverless security A different security model is where you explicitly give credentials that may be needed. So there is no scope to ask for any credentials etc, it will not be allowed. You can also go wrong on a serverless but the system is better defined in ways that it limits what can be done. It’s easier to secure when the attack surface is smaller. For serverless security the same principles from engineering techniques apply, you just have to apply it to these new platforms. So you just need knowledge about what these new platforms are doing. The same principles apply, admins just have a different layer of abstraction that they may add some additional security to. The more people use the system, more flaws are continuously found. It takes a community to identify flaws and patch them. So as a community is more mature, dedicated security researchers come up and patch flaws before they can be exploited.
