Companies today are increasingly using container technology to accelerate application development and deployment, while ensuring the portability of apps across different clouds.However, containers require a higher level of orchestration and management skills, as well as resources, than many companies have on hand. That’s why there is increasing interest in and use of Kubernetes, an open-source system for automating the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It orchestrates a multitude of container tasks, such as managing virtual machine clusters, load balancing, network traffic distribution, and more.Kubernetes is gaining momentum: 20% of companies are using it either in test/development or production environments, and 34% are researching or experimenting with it, according to the 2020 IDG Cloud Computing survey.To read this article in full, please click here

The daughter of Alexis Ohanian and Serena Williams just became the youngest team owner in pro sports at the age of 2.  The new team, a National Women's Soccer League expansion team dubbed Angel City, was announced Tuesday. The team will begin playing in Spring 2022.  Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. joins a star-studded ownership group made up of her parents, a dozen former US Women's National Team players, actresses including Natalie Portman and Jessica Chastain, YouTube star Casey Neistat, and other celebrities, executives, and venture capitalists.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. The daughter of Reddit cofounder and venture capitalist Alexis Ohanian and tennis superstar Serena Williams just became the youngest team owner in professional sports.  Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., age 2, is now a part-owner in the National Women's Soccer League's new expansion team based in Los Angeles, the league announced Tuesday. The team, called Angel City, will begin playing in Spring 2022.  Ohanian Jr. is part of a star-studded ownership group that includes actors, entrepreneurs, athletes, and executives. Actresses Jessica Chastain, America Ferrera, Uzo Aduba, Eva Longoria, and Jennifer Garner have invested, as well as comedian and talk show host Lilly Singh, a dozen former US Women's National Team players, YouTube star Casey Neistat, Netflix vice president of original content Cindy Holland, and more.  The group is led by actress and activist Natalie Portman, venture capitalist Kara Nortman, and Julie Uhrman, the founder of the now shuttered Android gaming console company Ouya. Alexis Ohanian's venture capital firm, Initialized Capital, led the investment.  "As someone who spends hours kicking around a football with my 2-year-old daughter, I want her to have a front row seat to this revolution," Ohanian said in the NWSL's press release about the news. "I'm personally investing on behalf of my family because creating more opportunities in women's sports is important to my wife and me, and we want to be a part of making a better future for our daughter." As The Athletic's Meg Linehan first noted, the formation of Angel City means Ohanian Jr. is the youngest person to own a professional sports team. Previously, only a few people under age 40 have become owners of pro teams: Tech entrepreneur Robert Pera bought the National Basketball League's Memphis Grizzlies in 2012 at the age of 34, and LeBron James struck a deal for a minority stake in the soccer club Liverpool in 2011 at age 26. SEE ALSO: Tennis superstar Serena Williams and Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian have had a whirlwind few years.

Earlier today, Twitter was slammed with a hack that involved several high profile accounts simultaneously posting a Bitcoin wallet address and a scam domain, encouraging followers to send in some of their cryptocurrency.

Hackers may have tricked Twitter users into giving them more than $120,000 after taking over dozens of high-profile accounts in a colossal scam that rocked the platform Wednesday. The scam began after hackers hijacked the accounts of prominent people and companies including Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Jeff Bezos, Apple, Uber, Elon Musk, and Kanye West. They tweeted links to bitcoin addresses and told people they would match their donations, and hundreds of people appeared to send money — though it may be impossible to confirm whether the transactions were legitimate. Twitter eventually intervened by limiting some accounts' ability to post in an attempt to minimize the damage. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Hackers put Twitter through a whirlwind on Wednesday, hijacking dozens of accounts and potentially making off with more than $120,000 in the process. The hackers took over the accounts of a long list of high-profile individuals and companies, including: Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Kanye West, Michael Bloomberg, Apple, Uber, and several major cryptocurrency exchanges. The compromised accounts then tweeted out messages saying they were "giving back" to their communities and would match any donations made to various scam cryptocurrency wallets. From there, hundreds of people appeared to take the bait — one wallet address posted widely received more than 350 transactions within a few hours. Business Insider identified at least three wallets mentioned in tweets by seemingly compromised accounts, but it's not clear that those were the only ones that received money. Additionally, not every transaction sent to those wallets is necessarily the result of people being duped by Wednesday's Twitter scam. Hackers often artificially pump up cryptocurrency accounts with money ahead of time to make them seem more legitimate, so the account balances may overestimate how much the scam yielded. Due to the anonymous nature of cryptocurrency, it will likely be difficult to determine how much money hackers ultimately made off with. Twitter eventually stepped in Wednesday afternoon in an effort to minimize the damage, tweeting that it was "aware of a security incident impacting accounts on Twitter" and "investigating and taking steps to fix it." Shortly afterward, many verified users — including some critical government and emergency services — reported that they were temporarily unable to tweet at all, and Twitter eventually followed with an update around 7:15 pm ET confirming that it had restricted some accounts' posting ability. We’re continuing to limit the ability to Tweet, reset your password, and some other account functionalities while we look into this.

We’re here to guide you through the coronavirus pandemic. Sign up to the Life newsletter for daily tips, advice, how-tos and escapism.With marriage declining and divorce rates for older couples increasing, there’s a non-traditional option on the rise: an open relationship. Not to be confused with polyamory – the art of juggling emotional relationships with more than one person – open relationships are defined by one couple being sexually open to experiences with other people. They’re one facet of polyamorous relationships – and both are bound by similar principles of trust, honesty and a belief that it’s healthy to experiment with more than one partner. And it appears more of us are coming around to the idea: according to a study by the Journal of Sex Research, Google searches around the topic of open marriages have been rising over the past decade.HuffPost UK spoke to couples in open relationships – many say they were curious to explore elements of attraction they couldn’t explore in ‘closed’ relationships, such as romance with people of a different gender to their partner, and the desire to experiment sexually in new ways. One of the biggest misconceptions around open relationships, they say, is that they imply promiscuity. Being open isn’t defined by this, they tell us, but instead by respect of each partner’s individual desires, both in and outside of their primary relationship. So how do they make their relationships work?Related... So, 'Turbo Relationships' Boomed In Lockdown. Are You In One? Saul, 29, a communications coordinator, is in two long-term polyamorous open relationships. “For me, realising that I could agree my own rules for a relationship was a revelation,” he says.Beforehand, Saul felt restricted, “like I was pushing down any feeling or desire that didn’t fit into a framework I’d never agreed to, or even been invited to question” – but a period of building trust and establishing the different needs of both people in his relationship led to a bond that, he says, “blew my mind”. While Saul is an advocate for open relationships, he says they require a lot of work. Being open to having more than one intimate partner requires strong communication and a deep understanding of desire: bound by your requirements, but also by a partner’s individual sexual requirements, too. He wishes people felt more able to decide what kind of relationship style is right for them – “what would make them feel happy, loved and free, instead of the unquestioned norm being heterosexual monogamy for all.”Others share Saul’s sense of euphoria. “When I was in a (theoretically) monogamous relationship, I was often vigilant and fearful of my attractions to other people, and would worry about what might happen if my partner experienced attraction to others,” says relationship coach Mel Cassidy. Mel believes we are conditioned with monogamous ways of thinking, like the idea of ‘I own my partner’ – so even in open relationships, she says people have a hard time “letting go” of control.When she first experimented with other partners, Mel was able to come to terms with her queerness that, she says, was suppressed in a monogamous relationship. Now, she feels able to confront broader, perhaps platonic, feelings of discomfort in her life outside of her relationships. “I’m better at communicating my needs and asserting my boundaries,” she says. “It’s also wonderful to have partners who bring out different aspects of myself.”It’s also wonderful to have partners who bring out different aspects of myself.relationship coach Mel CassidyA big misconception of open relationships is that people in them fear settling down – but that’s far from the truth, says Mel. “I have commitments, they just don’t look like the traditional kinds of commitments like getting married,” she explains. “My commitments are to kindness and authenticity.”Kit*, 30, a researcher in London, has been in an open relationship with Aubrey for five years. Their relationship is also polyamorous, which means they have emotional connections with other partners, too. “Whenever we have dated and/or developed feelings for other people, it has never diminished our relationship,” says Kit. “We feel so much joy for each other’s positive experiences, such as when someone sees my partner for the fantastic person they are, or when Aubrey watches me as I become all giddy before a first date with a crush.”Complications arise with managing two or more intimate relationships, they say, such as issues of time commitments with each partner, and whether there’s a primary partner or all are weighted equally.As for many couples, no relationship is ever easy. “Every relationship – whether open or not – needs to negotiate its own rules,” says Kit. “And these are not only highly individual, but they can also be extremely personal.” At their core, all relationships – regardless of style – are distinct from one another and work in accordance with what Kit describes as the “desires, needs, traumas and personal histories” of the individuals.Instigating the initial chat with a partner is the toughest hurdle, says Kit. “The solution lies in listening to one another, working out solutions to new challenges, and to keep adapting as individual needs change.“For some people that might involve a ‘no more than two dates rule’. Others might not mind multiple long-term relationships, but draw the line at dating each other’s exes or shared friends. “This is hugely individual – and the rules within an open relationship have nothing to do with the concept of the open relationship itself.”Some names have been changes to respect the anonymity of some individuals HuffPost UK spoke to for this article. READ MORE Polyamory- The Future For (E).U And Me My Husband's Girlfriend Is One Of My Best Friends.

Den nya skatten ska motsvara tre procent av techbolagens årliga omsättning i landet.Det framgår av ett uttalande från vice finansministern Antonio Misiani på fredagen.Den nya ”webbskatten” i Italien, som är euroområdets tredje största ekonomi, ska gälla för bolag med en global omsättning om minst 750 miljoner euro och en italiensk omsättning på minst 5,5 miljoner euro, framgår av ett tidigare utkast av Italiens statsbudget.”Budgettexten är bekräftad”, sade Antonio Misiani i ett uttalande på fredagen, enligt Reuters.USA och president Donald Trump har hotat med stränga och direkta hämndåtgärder om amerikanska bolag drabbas av skatten, som beräknas inbringa omkring 600 miljoner euro till den italienska statskassan enligt budgetförslaget.Debatten om techskatt har öppnat en ny front i den handelskonflikt som uppstått mellan USA och Europa.

The internet today is far from the utopian place that it was in the past, the Freedom on the Net 2019 report by bipartisan watchdog and think tank Freedom House suggests.“Internet freedom is increasingly imperiled by the tools and tactics of digital authoritarianism, which have spread rapidly around the globe,” the report notes.“Repressive regimes, elected incumbents with authoritarian ambitions, and unscrupulous partisan operatives have exploited the unregulated spaces of social media platforms, converting them into instruments for political distortion and societal control.”Overall, the report observes that global internet freedom declined for the ninth consecutive year.One is that it makes it possible to interfere in the democratic process.This often takes place using “fraudulent or automated” accounts used to spread fake news.
