Interesting article. I can't stand the political incivility that defines these times. No need to discuss policy when all anyone cares about is attacking the rival tribe.
In experiments, Americans discriminate more based on political party than on race.

It was all Christmas markets and Glühwein the first night of this trip in Zurich.

Interesting. Especially the statement that the opposite of addiction is not sobriety, rather "connection". Do you agree?

That is very interesting and has some valid points. Without seeing the full matrix of data collected to form this plausible theory I would say 50/50. Would also be interesting to see some Info regarding the loss of "connection" to the use/addiction state.

This had me laughing out loud. Both at the ludicrous selfie activity and how easy it is to ignore the "action" at a baseball game.
 
SELFIE OVERLOAD: MLB announcers poked fun at a group of sorority girls for taking way too many selfies during an Arizona Diamondbacks​ game. Listen to their commentary: http://abc7ne.ws/1KR5NPF 

Do you think people spend too much time on their phones?

Most of baseball is waiting for the exciting parts. If you're looking at your phone you will most likely miss them.

I'm not going to say anything about my perception that some people work hard to be offended.

This structure is fantastic. Might need a little sound treatment for a guy like me playing piano, guitar and drums throughout the house. But I could make it work.

The Iran nuclear deal that could prevent a war must have evoked another deal to end a war almost 50 years ago in the secretary of state.

Big money in politics is out of control. Do you agree?

I read most of the Princeton paper; kind of a slog but it really does say what the video shows. There's a lot of context that is interesting but doesn't substantially change the conclusions.

One of the best clips I've seen of Buddy. My father +Michael Steczo took me to see Buddy Rich perform live in Colorado Springs when I was in junior high and what a night that was. It left a lasting impression. The only problem was that it set the bar REALLY high. I left realizing I'd never come near that level of skill. Delightful to see it in person though.
 
A very Happy Birthday to this amazing man, Bernard "Buddy" Rich

Yeah don't leave us hanging, bro! Lol. I may be pulling the plug as well on my coop based on your reviews. Think it's a no brainer for me with a sun factor of 95% on an annual basis during the day.

Very cool. I wonder how much weight it would add to existing craft though and if it is too much to be practical?
 
DARPA recently conducted an experimental demonstration of Robotic Landing Gear. Replacing standard landing gear, the adaptive system consists of four articulated, jointed automated legs that are able to bend and fold up next to the helicopter’s fuselage while in flight. Each leg has an integrated force-sensitive contact sensor in its foot. During landing, each leg extends and uses the sensor to determine in real time the appropriate angle to assume to ensure that the helicopter stays level without risking the rotor touching the landing area.

Having the ability to land on and take off from angled, irregular and moving surfaces would greatly expand the effectiveness of helicopters across many military and national security missions.

I don't think weight would be the problem, more that an uneven landing surface like a hill could come in contact with the rotor blades. That's up to the pilot's judgement when landing in unfamiliar terrain, and likely to be a problem. Also if the hill is steep enough, you might get into trouble with ground effect on one side but not the other. But adding the capacity to land on unlevel terrain seems like a win, even if it's only for rescue choppers or perhaps even on boats.

Really guys? 10 minutes to get a water refilled? That was after it took 10 minutes to just get a menu and another long wait to flag someone down so we could order. The food took more than 40 to come out. Had to walk to the bar to get another beer. I know it was busy but I don't have 2+ hours to get run of the mill pub fare.

Fantastic live experience. The type that serves as a defining mark of character for a lucky city.

Prawn and scallops were top quality and tasty. Check out the chandeliers, made of kitchen utensils/tools. More manhattans made with Canadian Club - this might be the one truly annoying part of Zürich. Short menu but this is something I do not mind while others may dislike.

These guys are friendly and great to work with. I was able to send along photos of the junk and was given an estimate. They were able to stick with that and deal with the weird access issues for the area they were removing the junk from. A reliable, quick, and local service that I would certainly use again when needed.

Fun evening all around. Food wasn't exceptional but the experience makes up for it.

For a Canadian club manhattan, not so bad. But the four roses manhattan was a different animal. The bartender suggested this and WIN!
