Chinese Government to Apple: "Give us your source code so we can spy on your users."
Apple: "Yeah. Sure."

The company agreed to China's cyber-security rules in January, and started storing user data in China last year.

+James E Haha, you're too funny. Let's try this again. It is my conjecture that MS complied with local laws between the years 2010 and 2015. Further, it has been established that those laws include provisions for electronic surveillance. Therefore MS must have also remained compliant since they continue to profit on their business under those local laws. But hey, since this is the internet, and you say Microsoft does not have to obey local laws despite them saying that they are quite happy to do so, therefore it must be true, you must be right, I failed to research your opinion and the argument is closed. Congratulations, Sir.

How do you tell if a religion or ideology is evil? It won't be able to tolerate free expression in the arts. See this glorious documentary about the desert music festival in Mali that is no longer allowed since the Islamists took control.
The Last Song Before the War presents the glorious sounds of the 2011 Festival in the Desert, held shortly before Islamic extremists took over the region and banned music.

Thank you for the documentary. Yes, the free expression of the arts, the trampling of this, is always a sign of wicked tyranny and great evil.

"We despise all reverences and all the objects of reverence which are outside the pale of our own list of sacred things. And yet, with strange inconsistency, we are shocked when other people despise and defile the things which are holy to us." - Following the Equator

In Russia, every prominent political death gives birth to a thousand conspiracy theories. The case of Nemtsov is no different. Most of these are aimed at denying there was any involvement of the Putin government in his murder. As one person said on Twitter: "They're test-driving every theory they have to see which ones stick or get traction in short-attention-span media."
A comprehensive list of the theories, both credible and outlandish, on who killed Russian politician Boris Nemtsov.

Somebody seriously studied the ways pop music has changed since 1960. It's fun reading. The latest news is that hip-hop influences, ascendant since 1991, are waning and rock influences are gaining again.
And show that The Beatles didn’t start the American music revolution of 1964

The clearest indication yet that exercise makes a difference in body health and brain health.

"It turned out that these genetically identical twins looked surprisingly different beneath the skin and skull. The sedentary twins had lower endurance capacities, higher body fat percentages, and signs of insulin resistance, signaling the onset of metabolic problems. (Interestingly, the twins tended to have very similar diets, whatever their workout routines, so food choices were unlikely to have contributed to health differences.)

The twins’ brains also were unalike. The active twins had significantly more grey matter than the sedentary twins, especially in areas of the brain involved in motor control and coordination."
Identical twins who shared the same sports and other physical activities as youngsters but different exercise habits as adults soon developed quite different bodies and brains, a new study from Finland found.

Running for those who can. Walking for those who can. Anything is better than being sedentary all of the time.

These maps go a long way toward explaining the confused and confusing state of my native language. Why are the sounds for "ea" different in heat and sweat?

Some Brits add that "r" at the end of "idea". I have a friend from Brighton who does it.

At this point, my thoughts are that the speculations are just that -- speculation, and wild speculation at that. My personal observation is that the communities of people (some of which are in G+ Communities, some of which are informal associations of people on G+) remains strong. For instance, "The Art of Bread" continues to grow and grow and grow.

The biggest indicator of G+'s health, from everything I've read, is that spam is growing on G+. And spammers only go where they can get their biggest return for their pathetic efforts.

After seeing somebody else's buckwheat loaves, I went back and made some more of my own. This is white flour, wheat flour and cooked buckwheat. The buckwheat flavor and the sour flavor are both strong. The taste is good enough that I don't really need to spread anything on it. But I know it's going to make some awesome toast.

I loved the 2014 release that I had last weekend. So, I automatically bought the 2015 release when I saw it. This is good, but I just can't get used to having coffee flavors in my beer...and I love coffee. So, good as always. Just not my cup of tea...or coffee. Boulevard is coming out with a rum based release of imperial stout in June. That will probably be much more to my liking.

Far and away the best Neapolitan-style pizza in Atlanta. They have lots of competition, but their crust is perfection: enough char to have a crunchy surface but chewy and yeasty inside. They pay extraordinary attention to all of the ingredients and you can taste it. Service is friendly and fast. For some reason, I never see a lot of people there. But the location is kind of tucked out of site. Seek them out. You won't be sorry!

When you're hit by the smell of fryer fat as you pull into the parking lot, you should know what to expect. I ordered a fish sandwich. The piece of fish was about 1-1/2 times bigger than the bread for the sandwich. It was heavily battered and fried and dripping with grease. When I tried to hold the fish between pieces of bread, the batter began to slide off and fall onto the plate. I only managed a few bites before I put the plate to the side and had some of the pizza my brother ordered. This has to be the single worst meal I've been served in a restaurant in years. I know there are some people who fall for the appeal of sheer portion size and extra fat. But if that's not your thing, you might want to look elsewhere.
