What's the deal in maths - Asian #Mastery  or Western #Mindset  ? Mastery is scoring crazy high in the #PISA  context for sure, whatever that's worth. My personal higher level maths knowledge is frighteningly close to zero but, if I'd be the student, those 'Mastery' lessons would seem a bit - eh - booring. Anyway, good luck Mastering Maths, UK!

So, #Facebook Messenger follows the company's WhatsApp lead and introduces (optional) encryption. Not bad but doesn't make #Facebook to one of the great privacy advocates in my book. I don't much like being tracked around the web without my explicit consent so I use an adblocker and definitely #PrivacyBadger as well.

Facebook messenger has added a “secret conversations” feature to offer users end-to-end encryption.

One of the (many) great things about northern #Sweden is that it's rarely extremely crowded - even at the very best spots.

#Facebook is definitely in serious #drone business, that's for sure

I'd think those things are going to fly way above the normal airliner altitude (which is around 30.000 feet I believe). I saw somewhere those drones are supposed to 'drone' at 60.000 feet or even higher.

I know very little about #DennisCooper  and his work - and I'm not even sure I want to know more - but I do know that the way #Google  shut down his account seems very strange. Lessons learned? In case you use (free) online services from big players for important stuff, you'd better back it up and do it right. Otherwise, when locked out for whatever reason, you're toast.

Actually, the most important thing here - the way I see it - is not about how Google acted (or didn't act). It's about the fact that using (especially free) services from the huge tech companies is - of course - risky. If you get locked out by the service provider , there is very little you can do. No response from the whatever customer service there is? Then it's pretty much the end of the story. The voice of a single person among billions of users carries zero weight.

Again, about this specific case #TheGuardian writes about: at least #Google offers a very decent way of backing up and downloading all(?) of your personal data. So, if there's real value in your online account, backing up should be close to a religious thing.

Emergency positioning will be a lot easier for #Android users later on. Thanks for sharing the info +Peggy K​!
 
Emergency Location Service in Android helps emergency services find you

The service is live today for people with Android phones in the UK and in Estonia.

This feature, when supported by your network, sends location from your phone to emergency services when you dial an emergency number. This uses the same location technologies available to apps on your phone, including Wi-Fi, GPS, and cell towers, to produce a more reliable emergency location both indoors and outdoors.

This feature is solely for the use of emergency service providers, and location is never seen or handled by Google. It is sent from your handset to emergency services only when you explicitly place an emergency call, either directly or through your mobile network.

Learn more on the Google Europe blog:

#SeaKayaking 25k in the arctic #GulfOfBothnia waters from Rörbäck to StoraHuvön in 3 hours was a walk in the park for +Mats Ekström​ - however, later on, he had a serious incident in the rough seas close to Näverön. Luckily, a seasoned instructor (no, not me!) was standing by so everything ended up just fine.

Huge retailer - #1 in fact in Europe, definitely big in Asia as well. Lots of stuff to low prices for sure but their marketing strategy is not something I would applaud. There is another huge (but Nordic!) electronics retailer next door - ElGiganten - so check there as well before reaching for your wallet.

Good selection of all kinds of paint and the staff know what they are talking about. The discount system in this business is interesting, to say the least - at least 20 percent discount is something you get everywhere when buying paint and building materials. Some margins!

This is like.. nothing else! Old tech, machines, gear, music, art, lodging (both hotel and B&B) and the list just goes on and on. All this in a very, very special packaging. Doesn't make sense, just popping in and out - take your time!

Beautiful surroundings for all the travelers on the E4 main route in northern Sweden to take a break. The strawberry special was tasty for sure and hey - they are smoking fish here, too! The location by the Gulf of Bothnia is amazing but the traffic noise is there all the time as well; E4 is very close.

Sure, all the standard groceries are there, including a decent selection of ecological stuff. A bit of payback as well in case you do most of your shopping at the Coop stores and affiliates. Pretty good selection of tools and garden appliances as well. However, after a bad experience with an employee - and after taking the trouble to write to the (faraway located) customer service through the web - I only got a completely meaningless boilerplate response 'Thank you for contacting us..' No customer service or manager mail address on the web for this specific store that I could find; even snail mailed a copy to the store - zero response. Nah, I'll take my money elsewhere after many, many years as a Coop customer.

High quality tools, car accessories, spare parts - and pretty complete selection of the Weber barbecue line. High price level throughout; no discount when I asked to buy the one and only Weber (display) accessory they had in store. They would have sold the item in case I'd paid the full price! That's not the way to do business, the way I see it; nope, sure didn't give them my money.

It doesn't look like much, that's right, but you get this a bit scary time machine feeling for sure. It wasn't eons back that capital punishment was the natural way of dealing with criminals - or witches perhaps. Right here. In Sweden.
