kneufeld/alkali: a simple python database
> Alkali is a database engine, written in Python 3. It's raison d'etre is to provide a Django-like ORM while controlling the on disk format. If you already have your data in a real database like Postgres then you'll want SQLAlchemy, if however, your data is in json/yaml/csv/other/etc files then Alkali might be exactly what you're looking for.

New pytest plugin for Markdown reports
> Sometimes I would like to include a pytest test report in a GitHub issue or pull request comment, but do not want to manually reformat the CLI output. 😄
Thankfully, pytest can be extended and customized via plugins. Inspired by the fantastic pytest-html project, I created my new pytest plugin pytest-md for generating Markdown reports for pytest results! 📝
If you find it any useful, I’d love to hear from you via twitter!

Basketball bribes: How Adidas bankrolled a black market for top teenage talent | oregonlive.com
> Adidas, the second-largest athletic apparel and footwear brand in the world, funded a "black opps" crew that funneled payments to high school basketball players' families so their sons would attend an Adidas-affiliated school. Dramatic testimony from an Adidas bagman-turned government witness at a criminal fraud trial in October ripped the lid off the corruption long suspected in the sport and the footwear companies' role.

Ten minutes a day – Alex Allain – Medium
> In early 2012, I published Jumping into C++. According to the calendar, I wrote the book between January 2010 and January 2012, but it took me less than 200 hours of work. I know this because for most of the time I worked on the book, I kept careful track of my time spent. Between 1/4/2010 and 9/29/2011 (when I stopped keeping track), I’d worked on the book for almost exactly 156 hours and written over 70,000 words.

> How, exactly, did I manage to write a book in this short a time? I had one simple rule: I had to work on the book for just ten minutes, every day, no excuses. Ever.

Chris Coyier - YOUTUBE REPUBLISHER CHANNELS
> Have you heard of a scraper site? A scraper site steals the content from another website and republishes it on their own. If the work is copyrighted, as it is by default, it’s illegal. There isn’t much you can do about it aside from file a DMCA takedown request as the owner of that content. It might work if you can find them and they take you seriously. But it’s a never-ending battle that’s probably not worth fighting for most of us.
