The Dalai Lama to Buddhist sex abuse victims: “You have given me ammunition” — Quartz

“You have given me ammunition,” the Dalai Lama reportedly told the group, according to Oane Bijlsma, one of the four victims who met with him.

What a weird use of a metaphor of implied violence.

The world has decided bottom up is the way it's going to stop climate change — Quartz
I think that was the only choice all along.
At no point are entrenched elites going to give up power and privilege.
Even if the participants wanted to, capitalism and its oligarchical structure will always aggregate power and privilege to itself.
This means giving up the trappings and conveniences of inexpensive airfare and imported food.

This is a generational conflict. People born before 1990 will never truly see the outcome of what we've done.

data recovery - Accidentally executed sudo rm /* on a remote server - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange

If you just deleted the /lib64 symlink to /lib and you still have the console open, just do:

/lib/ /bin/ln -s /lib /lib64
and you should be able to run commands normally again. Adjust the path to your actual ld library. You can also run any other command you want by just prefacing it with the full ld library path.

debian - Can I recover from "rm /*"? - Server Fault
up vote

At the risk of necroing, I came to this answer while trying to resolve the same. It's worth noting that if you try to recover from this while the system's still running, you may not be able to execute 'ln' because you'll be missing a lib - you'll need to do something like:

/lib/ /bin/ln -s /lib/ /lib64/

The Tech Skills That Earn The Most Money In 2017
This is such a wrongheaded list.
Some of these keywords are not highly correlated to specific jobs.
So manager salaries are probably being included with ABAP.

What is even more sad about lists like these is that knowing the technology doesn't really make you that effective.
Especially tools like Cassandra or languages like ABAP.
I know a dozen fools who have Cassandra on their resumes who have barely passable CQL and I'm not sure I would trust them to write a range report that wouldn't blow all caches and indexes.
To think they command ~123K salaries is absurd.
And with ABAP it's a distorted average I'm sure.
An FI specialist is likely paid 2-3x what MM module specialist is paid.
They do at least acknowledge that the financial sector is likely to be the most highly compensated.

Dallas officer goes home to wrong apartment, kills man inside, police say - Story | KDFW
POSTED: SEP 07 2018 06:19AM CDT


UPDATED: SEP 07 2018 08:31AM CDT

DALLAS - An off-duty Dallas police officer shot and killed a man after walking into the wrong apartment in her building just south of Downtown Dallas.

It happened around 10 p.m. Thursday. The Dallas Police Department said the officer had just finished her shift and entered what she believed was her own apartment at the South Side Flats. The complex is near the department's headquarters on Lamar Avenue.

But it was not the right apartment and the officer ran into a man who she didn’t recognize. She ended up shooting him. Responding officers found 26-year-old Botham Shem Jean badly wounded. He was taken to the hospital and died a short time later, police said.
