Duolingo, the popular language learning app, offers a wide variety of languages in its list of courses. While it’s known for teaching well-known tongues such as French, Spanish, and Chinese, it has also added courses in languages that are less widely used, such as Irish, Scottish Gaelic, Hawaiian — and now, as of April 6th, its 40th language: Yiddish.
While Yiddish in the US is known more for some of the words that have entered the popular lexicon (“He’s such a schmuck!”), it is actually a full-scale language. An amalgamation of High German, Hebrew, and Aramaic, with a smattering of Slavic languages (and more recently, English), before World War II, it was widely spoken by Jewish communities living throughout Central and Eastern Europe.

Twitter is adding stickers to its ephemeral, Snapchat Stories-like Fleets, the social media company announced on Wednesday. Stickers are available for users on both Android and iOS.
When you’re making a Fleet, you’ll be able to add stickers by tapping the smiley face icon on the bottom row of your screen. When you do, you’ll see a collection of Twitter-made animated stickers and emoji (the latter of which Twitter calls “Twemoji”). And if you search for something in the search bar at the top of the screen, Twitter will pull up GIFs sourced from Tenor and Facebook-owned Giphy.
Your Fleets just got an upgrade.Now you can express yourself in the conversation with stickers. Add GIFs and Twemojis to a Fleet by tapping the icon, on Android...
The pandemic has changed where we work and how we work— and it's reinforced the need for robust security to protect remote teams, says Jamf CEO Dean Hager.The big move out
Hager’s company began working remotely over a year ago in response to the pandemic. In 24 hours, the firm's entire global team switched to working from home. As a tech-focused company, Jamf experienced little business disruption during the transition. To some extent, this was because the company chose to follow best-practice advice for remote working:
Make use of off-premises cloud infrastructure where possible.
Migrate all communications from fixed line to mobile and video conferencing.
Use the latest technologies — in Jamf’s case (as in 23% of US industry) that meant Macs and iPhones.
“My advice to companies who were not ready to go remote a year ago would be to implement these practices now, because remote work is here to stay,” said Hager.To read this article in full, please click here

More importantly, it was also captured by the automated cameras of the UK Meteor Observation Network and similar networks. Working with colleagues in France and Australia, the meteor-watchers worked out the fireball’s trajectory and determined where the meteorite pieces could be… This story continues at The Next Web
