A Via ferrata friend who told me to come today said "Let's have a fondue" while we were hiking. When we finished the hike we had our fondue on a terrasse.

Good Morning World. I won't touch FB or twitter today. I'll let the muddy waters of mediocrity settle and wait for clear waters to appear.

IS have control of Palmyra and once they have destroyed everything future generations, your children, will ask why nothing was done by the international community. Others will ask why Middle Eastern Leadership did nothing to prevent the destruction of cultural ruins thousands of years old. 

The Middle East have to take responsibility for, and preserve world heritage sites in their lands. 
Islamic State militants in Syria seize the ancient city of Palmyra, monitors say, putting its World Heritage site at risk of destruction.

They are half way towards their funding goal. With distributed air quality measurements this provides an interesting means by which to measure air quality in a dynamic way.

Trillions of dollars are given to charities and as investments a year. Donating to charities and giving to charities are the same leap of faith and demonstration of faith. In both cases you expect and require that concrete projects are brought to life and people are helped. 

The idea that people in the greedy land of venture capitalists, Silicon valley, would denigrate charities is unconscionable. Millions are invested in to failed startups that never see a profit and often collapse. As an early adopter who has followed companies come and go for well over a decade I am well placed to comment. 

If you don't want us to denigrate your "investments" in startups then you'd better make sure that those startups make it to a decade of existence and a profit. 

Remember that the whole of the UN system relies on donations, that many types of research are funded by charities. Without trust those charities will not raise money for cancer research and other projects aiming to improve people's quality of life. 

If both VC and Charity do their work well then they better humanity so don't denigrate each other's work.

Once they finish destroying all their beautiful monuments, there will be really no reason to go to their countries - as there will be only a drab desert and hovels left. Apocalypse can't come soon enough for the IS jerks - but only for them, the sooner the better

I don't understand what their device will measure and do. What differentiates it from Fitbit and other activity monitoring devices?
