If she considers her job unconscionable, she should resign

Fascinating.
Norah Vincent wanted to see what life is like as a man, and did it for 18 months. What she learned was very surprising.

Well, this is nice and new: ZRH-SFO now has an additional direct connection by way of LX36/37 to augment the venerable LX37/38.

I would like that; it's just a question of when. :-)

"""
Together, the Hacker Ethic, the Hacker Manifesto, and the Declaration of Independence of Cyberspace, ACLU v. Reno, and even the remaining piece of the CDA, describe a more or less radical dream, but one that many, if not most, of the people in this room have believed in and worked for. But today I’m standing here before you to tell you that these dreams aren’t coming true. Instead, twenty years on, the future not only looks a lot less dreamy than it once did, it looks like it might be worse.

I have suspected for a while that there would be an attempt remove jus soli, citizenship by birth on soil alone, in the United States. Ignore that Trump is mentioned in the article, but I could see this become part of a grand immigration reform compromise. If this sounds crazy, consider for a moment how few countries offer unconditional jus soli: ca. 30 out of 200. Most of this list are of specious value if you are a citizenship tourist, meaning jus sanguinis, citizenship by right by blood, is decisively more common.

Ponder on this, folks in the Western Hemisphere: you are living in quite an exceptional bubble (https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/5/59/Jus_soli_world.svg/640px-Jus_soli_world.svg.png - Dark Blue for unconditional jus soli. Nearly every country uses some form of jus sanguinis too.)

tunnel over a freaking mountain chain is more impressive  to me than near-surface metro tunnels. Both are awesome though

It's not like we don't like to have non-parents around it's just that our life rhythm has changed so much: cinema tomorrow night? No, the little one needs to be at home at night and only sleeps on mommy's boobs. How about a shopping trip on Saturday morning? Great, but little mister will get bored after 30min, have a tantrum and will want to get home. I haven't seen a single movie since the one with Hugo and co two years ago, not even on Tv. My husband and I now have a bi-weekly lunch date so we can talk at least a bit :)
We would (sometimes) love to do grown-up stuff again!
PS: we're having a bbq on Saturday afternoon (we now call it afternap), you're welcome to join us, Pascal! Only three toddlers/babys

Some of you who live in Zürich may know that originally a U-Bahn had been planned for the metropolitan area in the 20th century. It didn't happen as we all know, but its modern S-Bahn's genesis was to be found in this proposal. What would it have looked like, and would a referendum have been behind it? To get an idea, let's look at some historical material, which answers both of these questions:

The SZU station in HB was also meant to be a u-bahn station :)

Eintritt des Begriffs «Mikroaggression» ins Deutsch. Sometimes hypersensitivity is itself an agent for aggression and alienation, worse and more aggressive than what it aims to be vigilant of. Overall very saddened by the diminishment of critical voices on campus of all stripes, especially tenure as a umbrella for this in faculty.
