If you're wondering why your salary is so low, it bears asking: Were you inattentive as a kindergartner? According to a 30-year study, children who were distracted kindergartners earned less money, on average, in their early 30s than their more attentive classmates did. While these findings may seem discouraging (after all, aren't kindergartners known for being rambunctious?), the researchers see it another way. "Early behaviors are modifiable," they wrote in the study, "making them key targets for early intervention." [11 Facts Every Parent Should Know About Their Baby's Brain] In other words, if this behavior is caught early enough, perhaps children can learn to become more attentive over time, which could help them later in life, the researchers said. Even so, these results are correlational, meaning it's not clear if one feature actually causes another. And, according to an expert not involved in the study, it's unclear why the link between inattention and lower salary exists. … [Read more...] about Distracted Kindergartners May Earn Less As Adults

ZFS on Linux 0.8 (ZoL) brought tons of new features and performance improvements when it was released on May 23. They came after Delphix announced that it was migrating its own product to Linux back in March 2018. We'll go over some of the most exciting May features (like ZFS native encryption) here today. For the full list—including both new features and performance improvements not covered here—you can visit the ZoL 0.8.0 release on Github. (Note that ZoL 0.8.1 was released last week, but since ZFS on Linux follows semantic versioning, it's a bugfix release only.) Unfortunately for Ubuntu fans, these new features won't show up in Canonical's repositories for quite some time—October 2019's forthcoming interim release, Eoan Ermine, is still showing 0.7.12 in its repos. We can hope that Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (which has yet to be named) will incorporate the 0.8.x branch, but there's no official word so far; if you're running … [Read more...] about Digging into the new features in OpenZFS post-Linux migration
