Today's puzzle, lets see who will solve it first, my Google contacts, or my non-Google contacts. About what is this text?

τούτων αἱ γυναῖκες ἱππάζονταί τε καὶ τοξεύουσι καὶ ἀκοντίζουσιν ἀπὸ τῶν ἵππων καὶ μάχονται τοῖς πολεμίοις, ἕως ἂν παρθένοι ἔωσιν. οὐκ ἀποπαρθενεύονται δέ, μέχρι ἂν τῶν πολεμίων τρεῖς ἀποκτείνωσι, καὶ οὐ πρότερον συνοικέουσιν ἤπερ [10] τὰ ἱερὰ θύσωσιν τὰ ἔννομα. ἣ δ᾽ ἂν ἄνδρα ἑωυτῇ ἄρηται, παύεται ἱππαζομένη, ἕως ἂν μὴ ἀνάγκη καταλάβῃ παγκοίνου στρατείης. τὸν δεξιὸν δὲ μαζὸν οὐκ ἔχουσι. παιδίοις γὰρ ἐοῦσιν ἔτι νηπίοις αἱ μητέρες χαλκίον τετεχνημένον ἐπ᾽ αὐτῷ τούτῳ [p. 118] διάπυρον ποιέουσαι πρὸς τὸν μαζὸν τιθέασι τὸν δεξιὸν καὶ ἐπικαίεται, ὥστε τὴν αὔξησιν φθείρεσθαι, ἐς δὲ τὸν δεξιὸν ὦμον καὶ βραχίονα πᾶσαν [18] τὴν ἰσχὺν καὶ τὸ πλῆθος ἐκδιδόναι.

Productivity Pro-Tip,. You may be familiar with the functionality in YouTube where in settings you can control the playback speed of the video. Sometimes the speaker is a bit slow, sometimes the congress hearing is boring. YouTube has you covered with the speed up/ slow down functionality. However when viewing other sources this functionality is often missing. Well the solution to that is the extension written by a Google colleague. It has you covered on any web site that publishes video using html5. i.e. Netflix and others. Obviously its not that useful for drama or music videos but for lectures, documentaries etc. It can increase the bitrate to one's brain significantly. Full source code is available for review here, as well as to a few pieces of research. This is a great time saver for folks who watch a lot of lectures, documentaries, hearings, newscasts and similar content.
