The Japanese at their (borrowing depiction of Microsoft) embrace and extend best. Better bourbon bars, jazz cafés, vintage clothing and burgers than the originals?

Large corporations shouldn't be allowed to pay their employees food stamp wages. Link minimum wage to food stamp threshold and inflation!

+Georg Tirebiter the only one to dare break the S-word taboo too. Vermont actually looks like a nice place to live, he's not the only refreshingly frank politician they've produced

Time to redecorate my desktop
 
Funfact - because the Numix GTK themes are amongst the themes that support CSD windows if you use them under Unity, the CSD windows will look just as good as they would in Gnome. 
Well, you can't have the appmenu in the headerbar in these apps, like you would have them in the menubar of apps that use menubar and toolbar, but that's not a thing any theme can fix.
P.S. The pink accent colour is a custom thing, we're not moving away from the red.

I had qualms about Snowden's odd choice of destinations, and now after his Russia Today appearance, Lewis' more pessimistic scenario is sounding even more plausible.

Doesn't mean the exposed NSA shenanigans are not still something we should wake up to, especially those not in the US...

Just as programmers practice defensive coding, when it comes to privacy it's safe to assume the worst (short of assuming it's futile to do anything).

How indeed? Interesting how the flags of convenience are different for planes and for ships
 
How did an American jet wind up landing in Iran? http://buff.ly/1hUQ0Dj
There's a puzzle in international aviation and diplomatic circles: How did an American jet wind up landing in Iran? A New York Times correspondent snapped a picture of plane N604EP in Tehran Airport, and that's where the questions started: US companies can't do business in Iran, and you can't bring an American-made and registered plane there without specific approval from...

Being a USMC veteran, I find it extremely hard to believe this the first time an American-flagged aircraft illegally landed in a sanctioned country.

terrific, yet another distraction for me, preventing me from learning how to pick up biscuits without using my hands.

The most authentic Spanish restaurant in Jakarta by far, serving a wide range of pintxos and tapas, as well as larger dishes such as paella. Came for brunch and would have to go back with a larger group to cover more of the menu!

Delightful hors d'oeuvres, though the tenderloin was... lacking in tenderness

Nice place for gadget window-shopping, and the iBox service center there is probably the most competent in town for Apple products. Decent food vendors too (Outback is downstairs). For accessories, Mangga Dua still offer better prices.

Overpriced, badly prepared (though decently plated) food and drink, overly loud music with thumping bass reminiscent of a cheap club. This place banks only on its location on top of Jakarta's tallest building. If you're not an impressionable yuppie, avoid this place.

This mall has thrived amidst the ever-changing whims of Jakarta's upper-middle classes for over two decades - and no surprise, catering to most tastes, with everything from secluded bookstores to elegant boutiques to food outlets and cinemas
