More like this please, Internet.

(I only have girls, but I can say that they love all the Toca Boca apps to bits.)
Toca Magazine sat down with Mathilda Engman, head of merchandise and collaborations for Toca Boca, to chat about the company’s approach to building gender-neutral toys. Q: Toca Boca’s toys are described on TocaBoca.com as being gender neutral. Where does this value come from? A: It comes from the belief in equal rights, and that no child […]

I find the thought of a "collection" of stolen hotel bathrobes strangely hilarious.

I agree Paul. Nobody is indispensable and dismissal is an appropriate sanction for bullying let alone assault. A reboot of TG is overdue. I've been particularly disappointed with the dishonest coverage of electric cars in the last series. There are exciting things happening in the motor industry but not in the conventional ICE arena.

"I’ve listened to the soundtrack to Annie Get Your Gun while watching the sun rise over the Hormel Chili silo in Beloit, a coalescence of experiences that brings about something akin to ego death" has got to be one of the most wonderful sentences ever written by human hands.
The night bus can be an adventure. It can also be terrible and super weird. Prepare yourself.

Two very good quotes from this:

The first requirement is a matter of national will, and never a sure thing: it is the intention to get the story right, wherever the blame may lie. The second requirement follows immediately upon the first, and is probably easier to achieve: it is the need for people in the aftermath to maintain even tempers and open minds.

and:

After any disaster of this sort, it's natural to think: Oh, if only we had Different Rule X, or Different Piece of Equipment Y, then none of this would have happened.

Hindsight is always 20/20, and the rush to assign blame to Lufthansa, or to German privacy laws, or to "lax" procedures among German or European aviation regulators, is thoroughly understandable; yet still wrong.

I was so overwhelmed (and annoyed) by the basilica that I totally forgot to go see the Piéta. Admittedly it was at the end of a very long and crowded touring day.

Very pleasant restaurant in Cupertino; extremely friendly and engaging staff with a lot of hands-on customer service from the owner. The food was delicious - roti with a fresh curry dip (delicious), one of the best chicken satay appetizers I've ever had, and a really spicy, flavoursome curry entree. Numerous flavors of shaved ice desserts; try the mango especially!

Unfortunately it was overcast and raining when I was here, which is a pity as I think that the view is one of Doyle's main attractions. Still; the food was excellent and the service efficient, friendly and polite.
