Well, this is somewhere between a brilliant idea and a joke and I am not sure which side wins.  English, after a fashion, is already present in many countries where Esperanto is least successful and, indeed, a case could be at least started that what success Esperanto has had there has depended upon the prior presence of English (and other European languages) to provide familiarity with the vocabulary and SAE peculiarities of Esperanto.  On the other hand, English is a rough language to learn, highly irregular and given to odd turns of phrase that make no sense even to native speakers (and we won't even mention the written forms).   So a simple, regular and clear language that was easy to learn and had good teaching material both for itself and for English does seem a feasible way to go about teaching English and Esperanto has at least three of the six.  On yet another hand, the extra time spent is mainly waste unless, of course, it is hoped that the intermediate language can have some use as well  (sneaky?) in international affairs.  But English on its own does lack really good textbooks in almost every other language, partly because English speakers never learn another language and partly because speakers of other languages can't find the means to learn English -- a vicious circle.  Unfortunately, the internet hasmade matters worse by broadcasting both the worst of native English and of the English pidgins.  Still, more a good idea than a joke, I think.

When you install OS X on it, you have a better MacBook than the MacBook, for less. (and yes, people have done it: http://www.omgchrome.com/yes-this-is-mac-os-x-on-a-chromebook/ just not sure if it will actually run on this specific hardware...)

Most funny thing, with ChromeOS nowadays you actually have a superior OS on it, way faster and doing everything you want of it. Dual boot Linux on it and you can get that extra mile out of it.

Por Esperantaj afiŝoj sekvu mian kolekton Esperanto, bonvole. Kompreneble subtekstigoj bonvenas, tamen mi ne scias tuj kien mi sendu tion ;).

Temas pri ŝakboksado kiel entrepreno sen vera produkto. Nun efektive kiam vi petas pri Esperanta traduko, mi pensas ke similaj ideoj povus esti aplikeblaj al Esperanto: havi entreprenon por popularigi Esperanton.

I have an LG G Watch (and a really cool job ;) ) and every time a message comes in I can answer it in the language used: dutch, english, portuguese, spanish and french are all recognized no sweat. Except... with some people I communicate in Esperanto, and the speech recognition doesn't support Esperanto. I really hope that's a not yet, because it's annoying as heck, and it should be one of the easiest languages to support with speech recognition (prove me wrong Google!)

The writer talks about how her son's autism changed her as a person.

P.S. She is a friend.
When your child is diagnosed with autism, you will forget to pay attention to one critical aspect that will lay the foundation for what happens after that.

We tend to think we can predict what happens, but most people are wrong on all those fields as drug decriminalization and legalization, basic income and the language problem/Esperanto.

Introduction
Hello, I am Joop Kiefte. Most of my online friends know me (also) by my nickname LaPingvino, which is an Esperanto misspelling for ThePenguin.

I don't mind to meet new people, but please send me a message first with the whoabouts and howabouts before you add me so I can decide if I will circle you too. Short and clear: I won't circle you if you don't interact with me, as it has no value for you, no value for me and a lot of value for spammers.

You can find several ways to message me on the side of joop.kiefte.eu and they are both open for everyone to use. Don't be affraid to spam those: my mail has a very good spam filter and my notification counter is not satisfied yet with the current number of notifications ;).

We tend to think that simply giving people money makes them lazy. Yet a wealth of scientific research proves the contrary: free money helps.

Goede en goed vullende pizza's. Perfect als afhaalrestaurant, locatie is behoorlijk klein om ter plekke te eten en heeft veel aanloop. Patat en ander eten niet geprobeerd, maar schijnt ook goed te zijn. Grootste pluspunt is de openingstijden tot 2 uur 's nachts of 4 uur in het weekend.

Zeer aan te raden. Nederlandse eigenaars (en ze spreken hun talen), niet te duur, goede porties, plaatselijk eten op de kaart zoals grotchampignons (meer champignon, minder water), ook leuk voor kinderen. Ruim assortiment aan bieren en lekker dicht bij ons thuis. We bestellen vaak wat anders en het is altijd uiterst goed in orde.
