A great visualisation of the scale of WW2.

I found especially striking how clearly it showed that not US and UK forces won the war, but Russian forces. The western front merely put a dent into German forces. It was the continuous attrition through the Russian onslaught that allowed D day to happen.
 
This Animated Data Visualization Of World War II Fatalities Is Shocking

"It’s difficult to conceptualize excessively large numbers, particularly when they pertain to human tragedies. But this highly-engaging animated data visualization by Neil Halloran makes WWII-related deaths all too comprehensible."

Our publishing system and our scientific journalism is broken - as demonstrated by this scientific journalist who made people belief eating chocolate helps weight loss.
 
This Journalist Fooled Millions Into Thinking Chocolate Helps Weight Loss. Here's How. http://io9.com/i-fooled-millions-into-thinking-chocolate-helps-weight-1707251800 "Here’s a dirty little science secret: If you measure a large number of things about a small number of people, you are almost guaranteed to get a “statistically significant” result. Our study included 18 different measurements—weight, cholesterol, sodium, blood protein levels, sleep quality, well-being, etc.—from 15 people. (One subject was dropped.) That study design is a recipe for false positives."

"Think of the measurements as lottery tickets. Each one has a small chance of paying off in the form of a “significant” result that we can spin a story around and sell to the media. The more tickets you buy, the more likely you are to win. We didn’t know exactly what would pan out—the headline could have been that chocolate improves sleep or lowers blood pressure—but we knew our chances of getting at least one “statistically significant” result were pretty good."
“Slim by Chocolate!” the headlines blared. A team of German researchers had found that people on a low-carb diet lost weight 10 percent faster if they ate a chocolate bar every day. It made the front page of Bild, Europe’s largest daily newspaper, just beneath their update about the Germanwings crash. From there, it ricocheted around the internet and beyond, making news in more than 20 countries and half a dozen languages. It was discussed on tel...

Google is re-creating the Internet as it used to be: one single large space with all relevant content. This is a great push against the fragmentation of information through (paid) apps.

To do so Google pushes companies to provide mobile friendly pages (instead of apps) and allows them to communicate directly through push notifications in the browser (instead of apps) and finally is providing a unified framework for context sensitive info through Google Now (instead of apps).

I think that this is a step in the right direction while others might think this is yet another step of Google to take over all your data.
What do you think?

Denmark is handing Germany a present: a tunnel worth 10 billion euros. Germany will only have to pay 1.6 billions and will benefit a lot from both, the improved rail and road network, relieving the stretched existing networks and important economic growth stimuli for the laggard north and especially North East.

The sad reality: there are already 8000 citizen complaints submitted against the project... 
The Fehmarnbelt Tunnel will become the world’s longest immersed tube tunnel for road and rail traffic and plans are at the final stage.

University is free in Germany - for everyone

University in Germany do not charge study fees but only a small administrative free (100-200€) per semester. They are build on the belief that education should be available to everyone, but also that they are educating mature adults.

At a German university foreigners might miss the rigid structure of the curriculum (German students are assumed to be intelligent and mature enough to take the responsibility to decide in which order to take required courses) as well as a strong university identity and culture (while societies and sports clubs do exist at universities, they are often not part of the university itself but are independently organised by volunteer staff and students outside their regular university commitments and by no means professional - again reflecting the idea that students are mature enough to organise themselves).

So if you think that you can handle the responsibility then Germany might be a good place to get your education. For free.


While the cost of college education in the US has reached record highs, Germany has abandoned tuition fees altogether for both German and international students. An increasing number of US students are taking advantage.

Men mature out of popular music faster than women.

While everybody starts to drift away from currently popular music in their twenties, men do so much more pronouncedly so than women.
 
As users age out of their teens and into their 20s, their path takes them out of the center of the popularity circle. Until their early 30s, mainstream music represents a smaller and smaller proportion of their streaming. And for the average listener, by their mid-30s, their tastes have matured, and they are who they’re going to be.

Two factors drive this transition away from popular music.

First, listeners discover less-familiar music genres that they didn’t hear on FM radio as early teens, from artists with a lower popularity rank. Second, listeners are returning to the music that was popular when they were coming of age — but which has since phased out of popularity.
After sixty years of research, it’s conventional wisdom: as people get older, they stop keeping up with popular music. Whether the demands of parenthood and careers mean devoting less time to pop c...

The former Earlsfield Deli is now called "Bean & Hop". They still serve warm food and pizza but the days of cold cuts and cheese are over. It is now much more focussed on what they undoubtedly do well: Coffee and Artisan Beer.

As most US airports Dallas makes for a horrible passenger experience for transferring between flights, but this one is especially bad. Avoid at all costs. While automated immigration was a positive surprise, the entire airport is a functional mess. For transfers you need to leave the secure area and go through security again. To do so you need to follow very unclear sign posts which are in 50% of the cases directly contradictory to the statements of the staff (e.g express transfer should go in the line with crewmembers according to the signposts but not to the staff member right next to it). The staff is rude, lacks empathy and flexibility in thinking and is overall simply unprofessional but arrogant based on the power they have based on their 'uniform'. Worst, they are generally completely useless when asked a question (like estimated time to the gate) After separating my family at immigration we were told to wait for the others away from the immigration area. As our flight connection was very tight and our missing family member did not show up after a significant wait, had to escalate the situation by two levels before we were even allowed to check were our missing family member was. It turned out she was lead down a different route and we had waited in vain. Had we followed the instructions as given, we would have missed our flight. Overall, the mental rigidity of the staff makes the entire experience so appalling, I'd advice to avoid Dallas Fort Worth airport at all costs.

Great airport. Very fast security and border control. Fast luggage delivery and short walking distances. Frequent monorail connects gate sectors. Well connected to Zurich main station and Zurich Stadelhofen by train (12min) or tram (25min).

If you like waiting for 6 months for a reservation which then is at 6.30 for your dinner... If you like being seated next to the kitchen even though you are the first guests to arrive and being denied your request to be reseated without being given a reason... If you like being stared at during dinner by a whole group of the waiting staff whose dress code elicits unpleasant associations to the gang from Clockwork Orange... If you like being rushed through the courses of your dinner... If you like sommeliers that do not make recommendations but only state what is already on the menu... If you like a head waiter with unpolished shoes clicking his pen next to your table frenetically throughout your dinner.. If you like to leave a restaurant hungry... If you like to spend nearly 100 quid a head... ...then you should give Dabbous a try to figure out what the buzz is all about. I would describe the cuisine as 'interesting' but will surely not return.
