Why stop at standardization. It's 2016, digital LED keyboards ought to be smart enough to reconfigure and evolve input. Sign-on with French identity, get AZERTY K/B,  evolve from there. Use crowd sourcing to optimize HCI. Maybe global smartphones already do (or could do so)...

British Parliament debates whether Trump should be banned from entering UK. The result is funny. 
The British Parliament set out Monday afternoon to debate a question that is often argued on this side of pond but has never before been taken up in the halls of Westminster: Is Donald Trump dangerous

The British MPs seem to believe Trump is stupid. He is not; instead, he's a smart troll. As the Internet slang says, don't feed the troll; any attention he gets now, be it from criticism or ridicule, is good free attention. If we want to stop him badly enough, the most effective approach would have been banning him from all mass media.

Pray for Taiwan. Thank goodness my parents are safe. 
A magnitude 6.4 earthquake struck southern Taiwan before dawn Saturday, toppling several buildings and killing at least five people in Tainan, one of the island's oldest cities, according to local news reports.

This is either the worst way to persuade, or an elaborate scheme to teach Chinese youth how to get around the great firewall. 
The Facebook page of Taiwan’s president-elect was flooded Thursday with tens of thousands of pro-China comments following a campaign by young mainlanders to jump the country’s “Great Firewall” into normally forbidden overseas social media to express displeasure over the recent election.

After practicing their heckling skills with the Taiwan president, maybe the kids will try it next with their own supreme leader on Wechat.

FOOD POISONING!! Avoid! We were big fans of Mikuni for a long time, having been Northstar season passholders for a long time. We loved their beef-don that were served many years ago in the take-out section next door. Unfortunately, this place has been going downhill for some time, and I had really hoped that it would improve over the last few years, but we just had a food poisoning event here that is the straw that broke the camel's back. We will never be back again, to say the least. Last Sunday, I had family visiting from out of town, and we excitedly settled into our condo in the villiage and walked over to Mikuni for our very first meal on the mountain. The food was reasonably tasty, if not expensive ($13 for a sushi roll), but this was what I expected to pay in the village, so no big deal. We had two kid bento boxes, a California roll, two more sushi rolls, an Udon, and a beef teriyaki entree. Everyone was reasonably full and we walked out of the restaurant reasonably happy. The nightmare begun about 2-3 hours later. One of the kids on our trip started to throw up all over the bathroom, and this lasted all night. An obvious case of food poisoning! We happened to have a SF doctor friend who is also renting a condo nearby who came to check up on the kid, and confirmed it as a typical case of food poisoning. Given that the only other food she ate after lunch was a packaged chocolate bar (which I also had part of), I think this was pretty clear case of where the source was---Mikuni, a meal that I spent over $100+ for. The kid ended up missing the entire day of skiing, held up in the condo, vomiting water and Gatorade all day. We went to the restaurant to inform them of the issue on Wednesday. The assistant manager promised to talk to the supervising manager and get back to us in two days. They never called. We called again today, only to be told that it wasn't their responsibility, since no one else had called to tell them they got sick that day! Need I say more?!

Came here as part of a company offsite with close to 30 people. The service was efficient and professionally conducted. The guide offered plenty of explanation of the wildlife and was friendly and kept an eye on time. I only wish we could have paddled harder, but understate that they must accommodate abilities of all levels during a big group like ours.

This is the best restaurant in Barcelona when we recently visited the city. Reservations must be made 2 months in advance on the website at midnight CEST time, and I'm glad we did. This was not only a culinary experience that we remember, but I can already tell that we will keep telling the story of the amazing food here for years to come.

Good value, but quality seems to be going down some over time. My visit tonight left a bit of bad taste in my mouth given the amount of MSG and grease used in the cooking. Will likely to start avoid going here.

Good food and good service after coming down from the mountain. What else do you want? Had the squash bisque and the Lamb chops. Both well done and yummy. With 12 people at our table, service was good and prompt. Food came out at the right times. When we needed to add a wine, the service was swift.
