Marshall, AK. (via Google Maps)A Marshall man has been arrested for killing a 62-year-old woman Monday morning.Marshall is a village of about 350 people on the lower Yukon.Nick Zito is a sergeant with the Alaska State Troopers in Aniak. He says troopers from Aniak and St. Mary’s responded early Monday morning.“They responded to a report of a death at a residence there in Marshall,” said Zito, “and they subsequently investigated and found that an adult female had been shot at the house there.”Zito says by the time troopers arrived, a former Marshall Village Police Officer had already detained the shooter, 31-year-old Nick Coffee.Troopers allege that Coffee shot and killed 62 year old Anna Rossman in bed as she slept.“It was all family members involved in this particular case,” said Zito. “The victim was actually his father’s fiancée.”Troopers say Coffee admitted to shooting Rossman with a .22 caliber rifle and said he only stopped shooting because he ran out of bullets.Coffee was charged with first- and second-degree murder and arraigned in a St. Mary’s court Tuesday. The next of kin of the victim have been notified, and the body sent to Anchorage for autopsy.According to a report released this month by the Violence Policy Center, the rate of men murdering women in Alaska was the second highest in the nation and more than double the national average in 2013. That year, eight women were murdered in Alaska, all by men they knew.
GitHub is giving organizations another way to manage their repositories, users and work. The company announced that Projects is going to the organizational level.GitHub first announced Projects as a new way to manage work at its second annual Universe conference last month. Projects is designed to help users to organize and distribute work easily in the development cycle.“With Projects, you can manage work directly from your GitHub repositories,” wrote Chris Wanstrath, cofounder and CEO of GitHub, in a blog post. “Create cards from Pull Requests, Issues or Notes and organize them into custom columns, whether it’s ‘In-progress,’ ‘Done,’ ‘Never going to happen’ or any other framework your team uses. Drag and drop the cards inside a column to prioritize them or move them from one column to another as your work progresses.” (Related: Google lists its most popular open-source projects)By bringing Projects to the organizational level, all users within an organization can access the company’s projects as well as plan and manage their work across its repositories. “With organization-wide Projects, everyone can see what’s already in motion and work together without duplicating efforts,” wrote Pat Nakajima, a GitHub staff member, in a blog post.Organizations can provide users with different permissions on their repositories, and organization-wide projects can display issues and pull requires from any repository within the organization. Repository projects can only provide issues, pull requests and notes from a single repository.“Projects on GitHub help you organize and prioritize your work. You can create projects for specific feature work, comprehensive road maps, or even release checklists. With projects, you have the flexibility to create customized workflows that suit your needs,” the company wrote.
