Birthday weekend in Paris. This fifth set is a more random selection. Abstract architecture is an amazing thing, places like the base of the Eiffel Tower and the Pompidou centre are a brilliant reminder of modern building (even though the Eiffel tower is old, it's a feat of engineering!)

As more enterprises move to Google Cloud, developers and operators need to evolve how they build and manage applications. Moving to the cloud isn’t just about getting rid of data centers—it’s also about going faster (without sacrificing reliability and security).
Today, we’re excited to introduce Cloud Code, a new set of plug-ins for IntelliJ and VS Code that brings automation and assistance to every phase of the software development lifecycle, using the tools you already have.
The central tool of software development is the Integrated Development Environment (IDE). IDEs like IntelliJ and Visual Studio Code help developers stay productive while editing, compiling, and debugging code, but they work best with local applications. That can lead to challenges when developing applications for the cloud, as the local and cloud environments differ, which can cause errors to be caught late in the development cycle.
Cloud Code for VS CodeCloud Code for VS Code has the debugger attached to a running Kubernetes cluster.
With this first release of Cloud Code we have focused on making it easier to develop applications that run on Kubernetes, including Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE). Cloud Code extends VS Code and IntelliJ to bring all the power and convenience of IDEs to developing cloud-native Kubernetes applications. With Google’s command-line container tools like Skaffold, Jib and Kubectl under the hood, Cloud Code gives you continuous feedback on your project as you build it, extending the local edit-compile-debug loop to any local or remote Kubernetes environment. Support for deployment profiles lets you define different deployment targets, like local development, shared development, test, or production, so you can easily test and debug on your workstation or in the cloud.
Cloud Code for IntellijCloud Code for IntelliJ continuously deploying an application to Kubernetes via a Run Configuration. Deployments support profiles, and can be run locally or via Cloud Build. Log file streaming is supported, as seen in the output window.
Cloud Code also makes it easy to integrate Google APIs into your application. For instance, within IntelliJ we offer an integrated library manager that adds the required dependencies to your application, enables the API automatically for your project and manages any required secrets.
Cloud Code for Intelligʼs libraryCloud Code for IntelliJ’s library manager makes it easy to find libraries, related samples and documentation and then integrate them with your existing code base.
To get an application up and running in Kubernetes there are a lot of concepts you need to understand. Cloud Code also helps you when you’re getting started, with an updated set of Kubernetes samples that come pre-configured for debugging, build and deployment. These let you focus on developing your app instead of on initial set-up and configuration.
We built Cloud Code to easily integrate with existing DevOps tools and services including Cloud Build and Stackdriver. For example, once your code is ready to deploy, simply do a pull request or commit, which triggers Cloud Build to automatically build, test, and deploy your application.
Ops is made easier too with Cloud Code. A core tenet of DevOps is to use “infrastructure as code” in which all environment configurations are managed as source code in a repo. This makes environments reproducible and helps find errors sooner. Cloud Code and Cloud Build make editing, reviewing, testing, and applying changes to a Kubernetes config easy and convenient. Cloud Code provides templates, linting and error highlighting for Kubernetes yaml files. Of course Cloud Code also supports logging, so you can view application logs from any environment directly in your IDE.
Cloud Code for VS CodeCloud Code for VS Code leverages the full power of the IDE when working with configuration files—colorization, error checking, suggestions, snippets and more. Here you see a referenced secret from the live app running in GKE which was created 21 hours ago, the developer is ‘peeking’ the definition of the secret and ‘hovering’ over it decodes the Base64 encoded string.
Anevia, a leading OTT and IPTV software provider, uses Cloud Code to monitor their Kubernetes clusters right within their IDE of choice.
"With Cloud Code and its integrated cluster explorer, I have a quick overview of what is running on my different Kubernetes clusters, what works well and what needs to be fixed. The logs and status of all the objects are accessible with a single click. No need to access my terminal anymore." - Phillippe Martin, Anevia, Software Engineer
With Cloud Code, we want to make it easy to create applications for the cloud from the comfort of your favorite development tools. Get started developing for the cloud with Cloud Code today.

#HackerNews #air-breathing #engine #for #key #rocket #set #tests
By Jonathan Amos BBC Science Correspondent

The UK project to develop a hypersonic engine that could take a plane from London to Sydney in about four hours is set for a key demonstration.
The Sabre engine is part jet, part rocket, and relies on a novel pre-cooler heat-exchanger technology.
This pre-cooler system will begin a new phase of testing in the next month or so in Colorado, US.
Meanwhile, the core part of the engine has just gone through its preliminary design review.
Signed off by experts at the European Space Agency, the review sets the stage for this central section of Sabre to begin its own demonstration campaign at Wescott Space Cluster in Buckinghamshire next year.

The company behind the project, Reaction Engines Ltd (REL), says it is making good progress.
Not only would Sabre power units enable rapid, point-to-point transport inside the atmosphere, but they would also allow reusable vehicles to make the jump straight to orbit without the need for multiple propellant stages - as is the case now with conventional rockets.
Sabre would work like an air-breathing jet engine from standstill to about Mach 5.5 (5.5 times the speed of sound) and then transition to a rocket mode at high altitude, going at 25 times the speed of sound to get into space, if this is the chosen destination.

Achieving this flight profile is a challenge in managing temperature extremes.
The essential innovations include a compact pre-cooler heat-exchanger that can take an incoming airstream in the region of 1,000C and cool it to -150C in less than 1/100th of a second.
REL proved the pre-coolerʼs efficiency at taking an ambient air stream to low temperature in 2012. Now it must do the same in a very high-temperature regime. This is the purpose of the Colorado tests.
"To have a very high-temperature, high-volume flow of air to test the pre-cooler - we needed a new facility. That is now complete," explains Shaun Driscoll, RELʼs programmes director
"We will be running tests in the next month or two. We will be using re-heated aero engines to drive air through the system. We will drive air into the pre-cooler at up to 1,000C."

Sabre, at a fundamental level, can be divided into three sections - the pre-cooler front-end; a core combustion section with a smart thermodynamic cycle to again manage heat and fluid flow; and a relatively conventional rocket arrangement at the rear.
Itʼs the core section that is having a new test facility built for it at the Wescott space park, the site of Britainʼs post-war Rocket Propulsion Establishment.

The building is nearing the end of its preparation and the design work on the core of Sabre is also moving towards its conclusion.
"The core can be tested on the ground, but itʼs the core that gets you air-breathing from the ground up to the edge of space, at which point there is no more oxygen to breathe and the system transitions to the pure rocket mode," Mr Driscoll said.
REL is a private venture with the backing of aerospace giants BAe Systems, Rolls-Royce and Boeing. It has also received significant R&D support from the UK government. Esaʼs propulsion specialists act as technical auditors, assessing each step in the development of the Sabre concept.
"The positive conclusion of our Preliminary Design Review marks a major milestone in Sabre development," commented Esaʼs Mark Ford.
"It confirms the test version of this revolutionary new class of engine is ready for implementation."

Time is up for European Union-mandated daylight savings time. The European Commission and European Parliament have agreed on that. All the relevant committees in Parliament are for the change, according to Germanyʼs conservative Christian Democrat (CDU) MEP Peter Liese, who has devoted a lot of time to the issue.
Now that the lead committee on transport and tourism has given its blessing, by a large majority, EU lawmakers could vote on the change by the end of March. After that, all 28 member states will need to rubberstamp the ruling.
On German time?
European Commission President Jean-Claude Junckerʼs brash statement back in September, asserting that the amendment would go ahead quickly, has proven to be premature. At the time, Juncker was referring to an overwhelming response to an EU online survey, where an unexpected 80 percent of respondents said the practice of changing the clock twice a year was outdated.

The biggest Cuckoo clock in the world, in Germanyʼs Black Forest.
But the survey was not representative, with 3 million of the 4.6 million votes coming from Germany. This led to diplomats from smaller EU countries complaining behind closed doors that the European Commission wanted to impose German will on the other states through sheer populism.
Juncker was keen to abolish the twice-yearly time shift by spring, probably so he could claim, before European Parliament elections in May, that the will of the people had been reflected. But some member states demanded a transitional period up to 2021.
Good things come to those who wait, it seems, especially in the EU. As a compromise for the repeal of the "Directive on summer time," spring or autumn in 2020 has now been suggested.

EU members taking their time
This means that by June EU states will have to draw the lines for each time zone and decide what time those places will set their clocks to, and when.
Some EU members — including the United Kingdom, Greece and Portugal — want to stick to the old rules and continue to switch between summer and winter time through the year.
Infographic of EU Timezones
Cyprus, the Netherlands, Denmark, France and Ireland have not decided. The other states want to get rid of the twice-yearly change, but still have to decide which time will apply.
"You need time to give the member states the opportunity to coordinate. It is really important that we donʼt have a total patchwork," German MEP Peter Liese, told DW. In the future, if you drive from Hamburg through the Netherlands and Belgium to France, you should only have to change the clock once, at most, not three times, Liese said. Airlines, railways and transport companies would have to make adjustments. "But you donʼt need two years for that. It will be faster," he said.
A changing Zeitgeist
To be on the safe side, the European Parliament is calling for a "coordination network" of member states and, of course, an ombudsperson. It remains to be seen whether chaos will actually break out when the EU no longer sets the clock. As it stands, mandated EU-wide summer time has only existed since 2002.
* A man in front of a huge clock (Uli Deck/dpa +++(c) dpa - Bildfunk+++) This is what happened every in October and March — and might disappear in the future if the EU agrees on the measure: Zeitumstellung, or time change. Even if it feels horrible to give up an hour of sleep, keep in mind youʼll get it back in the fall. Zeitumstellung at least gives a feeling of power — even if we are all bound by time, twice a year we act like we can change it. * Playboy Magazin USA Cover (Photo by Jason Kempin/Getty Images for Playboy) Many other German expressions integrate "Zeit," the word for time. A "Zeitschrift" — literally, time writing, is simply a magazine. Whether it includes political discourse or scantily clad women (now with nipples covered), theoretically a magazine should keep up with the times. * Calendar page March 8 with tulips (photo: Jens Wolf) While Zeitgeist can also be used in English, its direct translation — time spirit — conjures up images of Charles Dickensʼ Ghosts of Christmas Past and Present. Referring to the philosophical idea that each era is characterized by particular ways of thinking, the concept of Zeitgeist dates back to 18th-century philosophers and is often associated with Johann Gottfried Herder. * Woman eating huge burger (Photo: Gennadiy Poznyakov) Like time itself, food is elementary to the human existence. A "Mahlzeit" simply means "meal time," and can refer to breakfast, lunch or dinner. But itʼs also used to wish someone else the maximum amount of pleasure while eating. Next time you see a friend chomping down on a sandwich, you can say, "Mahlzeit!" * Bride with the groom on the bench (Photo: Fotolia/tramp51) Itʼs often referred to as the happiest day of your life. In German, itʼs also a "high time" — a "Hochzeit." Who isnʼt high on adrenaline and emotion on that day of all days, on which your credit card debt reaches an all-time high? And for some impatient mothers-in-law, it certainly may be "high time" for that son to finally get hitched. * A girl with a pickle (Photo: Patrick Pleul dpa/lbn +++(c) dpa - Bildfunk) Itʼs "pickle time!" Iʼll have a BLT and some chips with that pickle, please... Actually the term "Sauregurkenzeit" originally, in the 18th century, referred to periods when little food was available. Now, itʼs used during the summer when everyoneʼs on vacation, politics comes to a standstill, the streets are empty, and things get quiet. Pickle anyone? * Angela Merkel with child in front of a computer (picture-alliance/dpa/K. Nietfeld) While "Genosse" means "comrade" and has a communist after-taste, a "Zeitgenosse" is anyone who lives at the same time you do: a contemporary. Just think: You are a "Zeitgenosse" of Angela Merkel, Heidi Klum and Cristiano Ronaldo. Your co-worker may not cheer, though, if you tell him heʼs your "time comrade." * Child with clock (Photo: Patrick Pleul/dpa +++(c) dpa - Bildfunk) German often has a single word for a concept English needs a phrase to express. "Zeitgefühl" is your sense of time — something that suffers when youʼre concentrating on an important project, staring into the eyes of your sweetheart, or changing the clocks back for daylight savings. Your Zeitgefühl may say itʼs 8:00 am, but itʼs really only 7:00. So go back to sleep already! Author: Kate Müser

Dear web developers,
First of all, thanks for taking time to set the background color for your web pages and form elements. The light grey or is so much more pleasant than the default glaring white color.
Though, that might be a problem for some users, especially those with a default dark theme on their systems. Let me demonstrate with some screenshots. Iʼll pick on Facebook first:
Facebook form on dark theme
What about the Dropbox login form?
Dropbox login form on dark theme
Google dictionary form on dark theme
Twitter 2FA form?
Twitter 2FA form on dark theme
You get the idea. The cases Iʼve shown here either set the background color without setting the text color, or vice versa.
I understand that this is like one of those accessiblity things, where it wouldnʼt matter to most of your traffic--and youʼve got much bigger fish to fry. Though hopefully this article would come up in your head the next time you type background-color or font-color in your CSS file. And if you have a few moments to spare, I propose one of thse three options:
\* Set the both the background color AND font color for your CSS selector, or \* Donʼt set the colors at all, let the browser use the system default color, or * Add yet another /* TODO */ in your codebase and call it a day. JK :-).

Microsoft has warned that it isnʼt only Windows 7 for the chop in 2020. Unloved Internet Explorer 10 will be joining it. Finally.
Internet Explorer 10 first appeared back in 2012 and in 2016 Microsoft made a concerted effort to kill the thing by focusing its support efforts on Internet Explorer 11. Anything not Edge-related or without "11" after it would no longer be supported.
However, not every operating system was capable of actually running Internet Explorer 11 and Microsoft infamously restricted its Edge browser to Windows 10 (and later iOS and Android). Notable exceptions to the IE10 crackdown were Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 Embedded.
Gerard Butler in 300 READ MORE
At this point administrators will doubtless be shuddering at the memory of having to run Internet Explorer in their pristine Server environment in order to get access to some recalcitrant function or component.
Alas, the shuddering must resume since after a two-year stay of execution, Microsoft has decided that IE10 must be stamped out completely. Windows Embedded 8 Standard and Windows Server 2012 will remain supported until 2023 after all, and keeping IE10 patched for another four years is doubtless keeping the engineers awake at night.
Microsoft has therefore warned that as well killing off Windows 7 in 2020, enterprises that prefer to take a slower path will have to update IE on their 2012 Servers, since IE10 support will finally end for everything in January 2020.
Unlike Windows 7, you wonʼt even be able to pay for patches.
Over the course of the northern hemisphereʼs spring, Microsoft will make IE11 available for Server 2012 admins to play with via the Microsoft Update Catalog and also the Update Service. This would be a good a time as any to enable Enterprise Mode to make the browser behave like older versions of IE for those pesky corporate intranet applications that insist on a specific incarnation of a specific renderer. You have until 2020 to leave IE10 behind.
Or you could make Microsoft very happy by migrating to Windows Sever 2016 or 2019, which both have IE11 raring to go in their Long-Term Servicing Branch (LTSB) editions. ®
