OpenStack, the open source project that allows enterprises to run an AWS-like cloud computing service in their own data centers, added support for containers over the course of its last few releases.

Hopefully by this time, you’ve recovered from Michelle Obama’s heart-tugging Democratic National Convention speech.
So, it’s time to dry your eyes, look at your phone and realize that your mom texted you several times during it.
Your mom loved it, according to the texts. She listened to Michelle detail the experience of raising her daughters in the White House, of finding a way to try and inspire the country within Barack’s administration and how to promote a strong, independent life within those circumstances.
And your mom really needed to tell you that Michelle made her cry, made her so happy and made her want to tell you how much she loved you. Read more…

Facebook wants to be in the news business, but it’s finding that being a media platform is harder than it looks.
On Monday evening, ABC news program Four Corners delivered a report that detailed the shocking abuse of child detainees in the Northern Territory. It included footage of teenagers being tear gassed and one boy being bound in a manner that would not look out of place in Guantanamo Bay.
The Australian government has already committed to an inquiry into the Northern Territory’s juvenile detention system.

SINGAPORE — Another day, another Pokémon Go-related drama.
On Sunday, Singapore’s minister for communications and information, Yaacob Ibrahim, told reporters that he had serious concerns about the hit game and suggested that it should be closely monitored.

It’s been a long night of political heavy hitters at the Democratic National Convention, but First Lady Michelle Obama has officially stolen the show.
After a long night punctuated by heavy storms and Bernie Sanders supporters booing, Obama came on stage and brought together an entire auditorium. Though she mocked Trump for being a “140 character” candidate, her speech seemed primed to be retweeted, reshared, rewatched.
“When someone is cruel or acts like a bully, we don’t stoop to their level,” Obama said. Read more…

In a video that pairs all the elements of your childhood nightmares, actor Daniel Stern aka Marv from Home Alone who definitely should have died from his injuries’ but didn’t — has resurfaced overnight to unleash your repressed arachnophobia.
It would seem that despite suffering what real world doctors classified as mortal wounds in the franchise, Stern is still alive and well. And harbouring 26 years worth of emotional trauma.
When a video starts with “I hope I can show you without killing myself,” you know it’s going to be good. And by good we mean DEAR GOD PUT IT AWAY.

Technology is changing the way we connect with our family and friends, so it only makes sense that it would also change how we remember them — something Google Street View is facilitating in surprising new ways.
In recent years, more and more users of Street View have been harnessing the power of the service’s time shift feature, which allows you to move backward and forward in time to sometimes catch loved ones as they were captured by Google’s Street View cameras.
Google’s street mapping tool offers images of a wide range of locations dating all the way back to 2007. Because of that, some users are taking nearly decade-long trips back in time and discovering images of deceased members of their families as they were photographed at their addresses. Read more…
