In space, no one can watch you rule at spinning a top. But on Earth a vacuum chamber will do.

The western world should be convulsed with worry and anger about the Wallström affair.

"A few weeks ago Margot Wallström, the Swedish foreign minister, denounced the subjugation of women in Saudi Arabia. As the theocratic kingdom prevents women from travelling, conducting official business or marrying without the permission of male guardians, and as girls can be forced into child marriages where they are effectively raped by old men, she was telling no more than the truth. Wallström went on to condemn the Saudi courts for ordering that Raif Badawi receive ten years in prison and 1,000 lashes for setting up a website that championed secularism and free speech. These were ‘mediaeval methods’, she said, and a ‘cruel attempt to silence modern forms of expression’. And once again, who can argue with that?"

"The backlash followed the pattern set by Rushdie, the Danish cartoons and Hebdo. Saudi Arabia withdrew its ambassador and stopped issuing visas to Swedish businessmen. The United Arab Emirates joined it. The Organisation of Islamic Co-operation, which represents 56 Muslim-majority states, accused Sweden of failing to respect the world’s ‘rich and varied ethical standards’ — standards so rich and varied, apparently, they include the flogging of bloggers and encouragement of paedophiles. Meanwhile, the Gulf Co-operation Council condemned her ‘unaccept-able interference in the internal affairs of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’, and I wouldn’t bet against anti-Swedish riots following soon."
If the cries of ‘Je suis Charlie’ were sincere, the western world would be convulsed with worry and anger about the Wallström affair. It has all the ingredients for a… Read more

The possibilities for my kid's poor school are insane! A computer kids can't break during travel to and from school, can plug into any display there or at home. I like this better than a chrome book frankly - if performance could possibly be the same.
If you plug the stick into an LCD display or a TV, you can run the sort of software you typically run on a personal computer.

Bleak? At least the human race survived, which is not the likeliest outcome.
The Peripheral may be William Gibson’s bleakest book, for all its glints of humor and feint at a happy ending.

Disney is “betting a billion dollars on a magical wrist band.” A new ticketing method that will let each member of your family get personalized treatment from the instant you enter the park, always welcomed into the correct line, walking out of stores with merchandise paid for without visiting a cashier, ordering food before arriving at a restaurant and sitting at any table, knowing the food will arrive….
The Magicband wields access to the park, replacing virtually every transaction you’d make inside. Bob Croslin If you want to imagine how the world will look in just a few years, once our cell phones become the keepers of both our money and identity, skip Silicon Valley and book a ticket to Orlando.

Sh*t Project Managers Say

Just a few things you may hear from your everyday project manager...

Heritage is a great place to bring your family business. We are a family of 4 and we just got our 4th vehicle (a 2014 Rav4 XLE) from Heritage Toyota. We were treated great - with respect and care, and we got a great deal we are 100% happy with. The dealership is very nice, clean, and comfortable, and we felt very welcome. Our salesman Rob Iandoli was great! Very friendly guy, greeted us when we arrived and didn't abandon us at any point, made sure we understood the answers to all our questions and didn't rush us a bit. When the deal got down to the end there weren't any surprises except how kindly and quickly Rob accepted our few last little requests to really make us feel like we made out! The buying experience was perfect and we will be back for sure for car #5 whenever the time comes. You definitely should let them make you and offer when you buy next.

L'Amante is our favorite restaurant in town I'd say. Personable and fun staff, and the food is wonderful. We go all the time without reservations and sit in the bar where it's fun and friendly. Kathy and Ian always treat us well and we save our pennies all the time to enjoy this special treat. The penne is great and if you get there early order the squash blossoms!
