Beijing's ban on smoking in restaurants, offices and on public transportation went into effect on June 1. Smoking near hospitals and schools also becomes prohibited and state media reported that shops can no longer sell cigarettes within 100 meters of primary schools.

Ready Universal Sensor Kit, or RUSK is a Spark Core add-on SENSOR board that comes with all of the bells and whistles, ready to go:

- Noise level (with built-in microphone).
- UV Index and Illumination.
- Barometric pressure and Altitude.
- Air relative humidity and Soil moisture*.
- Air and Soil temperature*.
- Up to 3 sources of power measurements* using non-invasive, split-core clamps.
- A 3-axis gyroscope and a 3-axis accelerometer with an on-board Digital Motion Processor™.
- Powered by solar with proper MPPT charging control, battery terminals or via the on-board USB port. Turn sensors on or off in software so that you can manage battery life.
- 2 on-board activity LEDs to let you know what it's doing.
- Pin breakout for all the unused A/DIO so that you can further customize it to your requirements.
- You'll still have direct access to TX, RX, D6, D7, A6, A7, SDA/SCL, RST and GND.
- Works with the Core and Photon.
- Super sleek profile at just 71mm by 42mm, and
- Two layer PCB, single-side, surface mounted components.

Just mate it with the Spark Core, and it's READY!

All this, packaged into one neat little board that's the size of a pack of gum.
Foxfire is raising funds for Ready Universal Sensor Kit on Kickstarter! A Spark Core based, sensor for noise, temp, power, barometric pressure, UV/IR, illumination, soil temp and humidity, motion and more.

Macroeconomic insights on the Millennials (those born 1980-2000).

e.g., they don't think car ownership is a necessity hence access via Uber etc. is enough.

Maybe in the future, personal car service will just be a monthly fee you pay. Order one on your app when you need one and the nearest one just zips over in a few minutes.

OK, you missed the first weekend (March 7-8) but there is still this weekend (March 14-15).

Fotanian Open Studios

There is a conclave of artists working out of studios converted from former factory buildings in Fotan. Each year, for several weekends many of them open their doors to let you see their work environment and current works.

The usual way to see them is on the weekend take the MTR to Shatin and then take a mini-bus. This year there is a shuttle-bus from Fotan. Outside at several points in the area they hand out a map with the address and apartment number of the artists.

You go up the to the highest occupied floor in the factory building and walk down the stairs visiting the open studios on each floor.

See the link for transport details.

It's delayed because the High-Speed Rail Terminal is delayed in construction. They are using this museum site for holding construction materials and equipment.

This is a test of the Finance Collection. It seems you should post Public instead of to Circles now.

Ain't that freaking cool? I have that frequently but... I now have a placeholder to be able to tell the difference between my two zero inbox personal and work accounts. https://plus.google.com/+TomVoute/posts/WfRDS7GWceo - the one on the right now has our company logo. That's even more visual

This picture of him isn’t understood," says Cook. "I thought the [Walter] Isaacson book did him a tremendous disservice. It was just a rehash of a bunch of stuff that had already been written, and focused on small parts of his personality. You get the feeling that [Steve’s] a greedy, selfish egomaniac. It didn’t capture the person. The person I read about there is somebody I would never have wanted to work with over all this time."
The untold story of Tim Cook's friendship with Steve Jobsand why Jobs wouldn't let Cook try to save his life.

He had laser beam focus. Aspects of his personality are littered in the literature. Counter to the pigeon-holing of specialism prized by knobs and tools, he had the model of the whole donut and could move heaven and earth, for example, getting the supply-chain built in China with government which wouldn't be possible in the U.S,A. For iPhone.
