Vegetarians are more likely to suffer from depression than meat eaters, study suggests

Those with mental health conditions may adopt a plant-based diet due to the perception that it is healthier

Researchers in the US reviewed 18 studies published from 1997 to 2019 which examined the relationship between mental health and eating meat on a total of 160,257 people.

The authors cited one study from 2012 which suggested that a vegetarian diet might be chosen by some with mental disorders “as a form of safety or self-protective behaviour” due to the perception that plant-based diets are healthier …

He was part of Amazon’s coronavirus hiring spree. Two weeks later he was dead

When Harry Sentoso got called back to work at an Amazon delivery center in Irvine, Calif., in late March, he was excited.

He had been working in Amazon warehouses on and off for two years, always hoping to get a full-time position but always laid off after seasonal demand died down. Just a few weeks earlier, at the beginning of March, his bosses had told him they didn’t need him anymore. He had spent most of the month cooped up at home in Walnut, looking for other work …

‘Beyond stupid’: Linus Torvalds trashes 5.8 Linux kernel patch over opt-in Intel CPU bug mitigation

AWS engineers given a dressing-down after proposing fix for ‘paranoid’ tasks

Linus Torvalds has removed a patch in the next release of the Linux kernel intended to provide additional opt-in mitigation of attacks against the L1 data (L1D) CPU cache.

The patch from AWS engineer Balbir Singh was to provide “an opt-in (prctl driven) mechanism to flush the L1D cache on context switch. The goal is to allow tasks that are paranoid due to the recent snoop-assisted data sampling vulnerabilities, to flush their L1D on being switched out. This protects their data from being snooped or leaked via side channels after the task has context switched out.” …

Linux 5.2 – Big changes could be coming to Linux programming

Linus Torvalds argues against 80 character line limit ahead of Linux 5.7’s release

After recently making the switch from Intel to AMD, Linus Torvalds has come out against 80-character-lines as a de facto programming standard.

As reported by The Register, Torvalds shared his thoughts on the topic of line lengths in a recent Linux kernel clean-up post where he argued that limiting lines to 80 characters makes for lots of line breaks. Others have argued that 80-character lines are a long-standing convention that should remain in place due to the fact that large monitors can handle many small windows when column width is limited…





Ford heats police cars to 133 degrees to break down coronavirus

Ford’s baking its police SUVs to fight the coronavirus outbreak.

The manufacturer has developed a software update that turns the car’s heating system all the way up so that any vehicles that are possibly infected with coronavirus are thoroughly disinfected. It’s set to roll out to police departments with select Ford police vehicles on Wednesday,

For the past 40 days Ford engineers worked with Ohio State University to develop a sanitization method that was relatively low-tech after police departments were reaching out about effective cleaning procedures. A climate control engineer suggested looking into heat-based neutralization and the university tested samples to see how much time and heat was needed to properly fight off the virus…


Responsive grids and how to actually use them: common UI layouts

Now that you have a basic understanding of how to use grids, you might be wondering how to apply them to layouts you see on the web. Responsive grids are a method to systematically align your designs, to give order, establish hierarchy, and “logic” to your designs. It makes things look less floaty, and you can generally tell who is and who is not using a grid. As people become better designers, their eyes are constantly drawing horizontal and vertical lines everywhere to create that order and alignment…

Good job! CSS Layout

Components, patterns and layouts are things you have to deal with everyday. There are a lot of CSS frameworks that provide rich set of layouts and patterns, but I usually don’t want to include all of them in my project.

So that I collect most popular layouts and patterns that can be built with pure CSS. They are powered by modern CSS features such as flexbox and CSS grid.

Starting with the most basic part, you can customize easily for each specific need. By composing them, you can have any possible layout that exists in the real life.
