The deadly virus outbreak [has] caused alarm around the world. However, unlike the response to global heating, it has shown how political and corporate leaders can take radical emergency action on the advice of scientists to protect human wellbeing.

[W]e shouldn’t panic, [but] we should take COVID-19 seriously. The goal here is to keep the most vulnerable of us as safe as possible and work to slow the spread of the virus so it doesn’t overwhelm our healthcare system. So let’s do that—the elderly and those most at risk are counting on us.

While XML sitemaps are soon coming to WordPress core, I’ve finally figured out how to exclude pages from Jetpack’s sitemaps. The $post argument for jetpack_sitemap_skip_post, you see, is not a WP_Post object but a database row, and its ID is a string and not an int. (I know it says so right there, on https://developer.jetpack.com/hooks/jetpack_sitemap_skip_post/, but still. Also, that link doesn’t show on https://developer.jetpack.com/module/sitemaps/. Or rather, it does, on page 2, hidden behind “Older posts.”)

That is such backward thinking by the exact same folk that justify their own salaries with, “If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys.”

Two senior Gravity employees also resigned in protest. They weren’t happy that the salaries of junior staff had jumped overnight, and argued that it would make them lazy, and the company uncompetitive.

Is this finally the end of the rally that’s propelled stocks more than 80% higher over the past four years? […] On average, these week-long losing streaks lead to 16.3% gains a year later.

I’ve been doing this—fully automatic updates—for a very long time—for sites that do not have a gazillion horrible, “premium” plugins installed—using a simple cron task and WP-CLI.
