Just watched "Where to Invade Next". If I had to recommend just a few minutes from the whole documentary, I'd recommend the part about Norway justice system, for being a paradigm of what justice should be about, instead of vengeance.

+Beorn Borg And not just on the Christian right. The eye-for-an-eye thing is a cultural trait that may have been inherited from Judeo-Christian traditions, but nowadays is very common among people of very different religious backgrounds, including atheists.

Is all criticism of Israel's policies, and even its right to exist, racist?

James Webb Space Telescope Mirror Installation

The primary mirror of the James Webb Space Telescope is comprised of 18 individual mirror segments arranged in a hexagonal pattern. Each of the gold-coated beryllium mirrors measures 4.2ft (1.3m) across and weighs 88lbs (40kg). Once fully deployed in space, the individual segments will function as a single 21.3ft (6.5m) diameter mirror.

The mirrors were installed over the course of several months and required sub-millimeter accuracy in order to ensure the correct optical alignment. A laser-guided robotic arm was used to steer the mirrors into the correct position prior to bolting. The gold-coated mirrors were covered by protective cases during the installation process that will be removed prior to launch.

The James Webb Space Telescope is the scientific successor to NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and is scheduled to launch in October 2018. The much larger mirror (6.5m vs 2.4m) will allow for the imaging of even more distant/ancient celestial objects.

Hm, so if they ever need to repair the JWST they will need a beryllium sphere?

Serious problem here. What kind of sick society destroys its children's intellect to this point?

More than seven months after the first shots were fired, the Pentagon says its attack on a hospital in Afghanistan that left 42 people dead is not a war crime.

"The Americans “had no idea,” they were targeting the hospital" They lie so much, they always lie, it makes me so mad

+Michael Harvill We would have those things anyway.....It's our purchases and spending that allows the fat cat to get fatter......As a matter of fact, many of those things would most likely be less costly if it weren't for the greed of the fat cat.

Following that, we should also talk about the joke of corporate media and "journalism", that has become gross propaganda.

With the exception of Greenwald and a bunch of other Journalists, the media keeps parroting Washington's war propaganda as if it were the Truth, no matter how many times they have been caught telling nothing but blatant lies.
 
Great analysis from Glenn Greenwald!
American punishment meted out for 42 dead: counseling, letters of reprimand, training courses.

Story
Introduction
I am yet another John Doe.

I like programming, that's my work, free (as in freedom) software, playing my guitar when I have time, that unluckily is not very often, and read books on politics, science and technology.

I tend to be quite tolerant, even when sometimes it needs a great effort, but there are a few people that are not welcomed neither in my circles nor in my stream. Among these:

- Climate change deniers
- Right-wing extremists (Including nazis, fascists, Tea Party members, Zionists, NATO warmongers, etc.)

I find superstitions archaic, including the existence of God.

We have been traveling to Ayamonte, an Spanish town closed to The Algarve, in summer for the last three years. And despite we have to drive at least one hour to Sao Brass de Alportel, we always visit Luís dos Frangos because their Frango no Churrasco is the best we have ever tasted, we think it has something to see with their unique recipe of piri piri sauce. And it is really inexpensive.

Este solía ser un buen restaurante, pero ahora es *pésimo*. La calidad ha bajado sustancialmente, las dos últimas veces que fuimos no tenían la mitad de las cosas que venían en la carta, así que prácticamente comimos lo que nos dieron, no lo que queríamos. La última vez que estuvimos nos intentaron engañar directamente: preguntamos que quesos tenían para terminar la cena y nos ofrecieron una tabla de quesos asturianos. Aceptamos y nos colaron unos pedazos más secos que el ojo de un tuerto de los cuales como mucho serían asturianos dos, le preguntamos al camarero que quesos asturianos eran y no supo decirnos nada, así que le pedimos que se la llevase. Y la higiene para denunciarlos directamente: Fuimos a cenar pronto, no había nadie más en todo el comedor, y los servicios estaban que había que entrar nadando hasta la taza, así que estaba claro que llevaban por lo menos desde la noche anterior sin limpiarlos. POR LO MENOS. En suma: una vergüenza. A nosotros nos han perdido como clientes de por vida. No se lo recomiendo a nadie.

Fuímos a comer cuatro adultos ayer, mi compañera, dos foriatos de Madrid y un servidor, y pedimos sendos cachopos: uno fartón "estándar" y otro de cecina y queso de cabra. La comida estaba exquisita y era abundante hasta decir basta. Nos costó hacernos con los dos cachopos entre los cuatro. El rebozado y el punto de la carne era perfecto, los filetes estaban muy tiernos y las patatas que los acompañan caseras. La atención del personal en general fue excelente, a pesar de tener el local abarrotado. El único motivo por el que no pongo la quinta estrella es porque nos pusieron pan sin preguntar si lo queríamos, que no va incluido en el precio y que de haberlo sabido habríamos rechazado, pues se llevaron la cesta llena al final de la comida. En cualquier caso pueden contar con que volveremos por allí, especialmente cada vez que tengamos algún invitado en casa que no sepa lo que es un buen cachopo.

See English version below. La cocina no es especialmente mala, pero el pan que nos pusieron estaba quemado hasta el punto de que en algunas partes estaba negro, literalmente. Eran barras de esas precongeladas, que a veces hago yo mismo en casa, y cuando me despisto y se me queman hasta ese punto directamente las tiro. Así que me parece VERGONZOSO que pongan algo así a alguien que va a pagar por ello. Demuestran muy poco interés en cuidar de sus clientes con semejante detalle, desde luego. Los primeros platos fueron razonables, pero de segundo dos de nosotros pedimos merluza a la sidra y trajeron una ración para ambos que al principio pensamos que era para uno nada más. Venían los cuatro trozos más pequeños de la cola de dos merluzas, la peor parte, llena de espinas. Y el sabor a sidra todavía lo estamos buscando. En el precio del menú, de unos 12 euros por persona, no se incluía la sidra que tuvimos que abonar aparte. Los postres estaban bastante buenos, pero haciendo balance total de la experiencia, NO se lo recomiendo a nadie. Ni que decir tiene que nosotros no pensamos volver. _________________________________________________________________ The cook is not bad, but the bread was burned to the point of being black at some parts. I make bread at home sometimes and if I leave it in the oven to that point, I put it directly in the garbage can. It's shameful giving it to someone that have actually paid for it. I think they don't care too much about the customers. The first dishes were OK, but two of us chose a fish —merluza a la sidra– and when they arrived with the dish we thought it was only for one person, but it was actually for two, and there were four little pieces from the tail of the fish, the worst part. Also it didn't have the cider flavor expected in such recipe. The menu price was about 12 euros per person, and it didn't include cider for drinking, that you have to pay apart. Desserts were pretty good, but given the overall experience I don't recommend it to anyone.
