Beamte selbstverantwortlich mit dem Internet umgehen lassen geht natürlich nicht. Die haben ja das Gewaltmonopol und könnten sich radikalisieren? Aber mal ernsthaft: Wenn man seine Arbeit nicht machen kann weil irgendwelche Schreibtischtäter um die "Produktivität" oder die "Sitte" besorgt sind, dann läuft etwas falsch und man sollte sie zur Rechenschaft ziehen.

Wir leben im Zeitalter von Häckerterrorcyber, aber die Polizei kann einem Amok-Verdacht nicht sofort nachgehen, weil Instagram auf den Computern der Dienststelle gesperrt ist, schickt stattdessen die Kripo beim Anrufer vorbei um sich das auf dessen PC zeigen zu lassen. Warum bin ich nicht überrascht?

Mind blown.
 
What in the sorcerous hells is this? Kokichi Sugihara’s ‘Rectangles and Circles’ illusion is a mind-bending visual trip that turns squares into circles and circles into squares right in front of your face. Different shapes are placed at a mirror and what you see in front of you is totally different from what you see in the mirror. It’s like the mirror is actually a portal to another dimension where squares are circles and circles are squares. Ser...

I, for one, would welcome an independent Scotland into the EU. I don't know how the English could come up with this terrible idea that playing with this xenophobic fire would help. I see people wanting control back for their home countries. To pass own legislation. As if that wouldn't be possible today. And they ones who campaigned for leave now acknowledge that they will be tied to the same rules within the common market anyway. Oh well. I would have preferred less competition between countries, but let's see where this leads us. Hopefully not into a world where the European countries hate their neighbors again. Ultimately this seems to be the outcome if this continues with the other right-wing countries that lobby against the EU right now.

Wir besichtigen gerade akutes Politikversagen in Aktion. »Diese Faktoiden ergeben das Bild eines verstörten, kranken jungen Menschen, aufgeladen mit Hass auf die Welt und auf sich selber. […]

Kurz: Es gäbe viele Ansätze, um auf dem Massaker vom Olympia-Einkaufszentrum herumzudenken, damit Menschen wie David S. künftig nicht noch einmal zu Mördern werden. Hier einige Vorschläge aus der Politik: [Zusammenhangloser CDU/CSU Lall ]
[…]
Wenn man Taten wie die in München verhindern will, muss man den mühsamen Perspektivwechsel nach innen vornehmen, in die eigene Gesellschaft hineinblicken, auf die eigenen Leute, auf die eigenen Werte. Wir müssen uns selbst fragen, wie so etwas passieren kann, nicht die Computerspielhersteller und nicht die Geheimdienste.[…]«

Mittlerweile ist bekannt: Der 18-Jährige Massenmörder von München. wurde von seinen Mitschülern gemobbt und isoliert; hat Türken und Juden gehasst; sagte “ich bin hier geboren, ich bin Deutscher”; hat im Internet Frauen beschimpft; befand sich in Therapie, wohl wegen Angststörungen ...

Ich fand folgenden Artikel sehr lesenswert:
http://www.zeit.de/gesellschaft/zeitgeschehen/2016-07/amok-muenchen-praevention-mitleid

... "Am Ende gibt es also nur eins, was sich wirklich lohnt: jeden einzelnen Menschen ernst nehmen, ob amokgefährdet oder nicht. Denn umgekehrt gilt: Wie viele dieser Fälle verhindert wurden, weil eine Lehrerin, ein Nachbar oder eine große Schwester sich für einen verzweifelten Menschen interessiert hat, werden wir auch nie erfahren. Weil Gewaltfantasien Fantasien blieben. Das Leben wieder eine Perspektive bekam."

"On 29 April 2016, the government under Prime Minister Sherif Ismail decided to use summer time again (UTC+3) by July 7. It will begin after Ramadan until the end of October. However, it was cancelled on July 4 following a vote by the Egyptian parliament on June 28 to abolish DST, and to comply the April 2015 presidential decree to refrain from introducing DST."

Because when else would you decide about your time keeping than three days before an actual change. Now if politicians could stop messing with time because of exams (looking at you, Turkey) and other craziness like this, that'd be much appreciated.

"The Regulation of Interception of Communications and Provision of Communication-Related Information Act (RICA) is a law that makes it compulsory for everyone in South Africa to register their cellphone number. It is one of the government’s key crime prevention initiatives towards making South Africa a better place."

The newspeak is strong in South Africa.

"IEC 60906-1 is an international standard for 230 V AC domestic power plugs and sockets. It was conceived as a common mains plug and socket standard for use in territories with 230 V. [...] Although it looks similar to the Swiss SEV 1011 plug, its dimensions are different. As of July 2014, only South Africa has introduced a standard (SANS 164-2) based closely on IEC-60906-1. Brazil used it as the basis for its NBR 14136 standard, but this is not compatible with IEC-60906-1."

Paging +Will Beers. But then I'd be surprised if the "wall-mount it, no really" part of the instruction was actually missing.
Ikea is to recall 27 million Malm chests of drawers in North America after the deaths of three children in the US.
