37 seconds of Wisdom from José Mujica
former President of Uruguay.

He has been described as "the world's 'humblest' president" due to his austere lifestyle and his donation of around 90 percent of his $12,000 monthly salary to charities that benefit poor people and small entrepreneurs. (Wikipedia)

Transcript of his speech:
"We invented a mountain of superfluous needs.
You have to keep buying, throwing away …
It´s our life we are squandering.
When i buy something, or when you buy it,
we´re not paying with money.
We´re paying with the time from our lives we had to spend to earn that money.
The difference is that you can´t buy life.
Life just goes by.
And it´s terrible to waste your life losing your freedom."

- José Mujica

ALMA rewrites history of Universe's stellar baby boom
 
March 13th marked the formal commissioning of the Atacama Large Millimetre Array (ALMA), a 66-dish radio telescope located high in the Chilean desert. It is the biggest radio telescope in the world, designed to explore the universe at wavelengths invisible to the human eye. Among other things, astronomers hope that ALMA will reveal the birth of stars and planets in unprecedented detail http://econ.st/ZNJ91r

Well at least a little bit nearer than we could have hoped for. Maybe Sheldon's calculations were wrong after all ;).

What do 100,000 stars look like? 

The new Chrome Experiment “100,000 Stars” tries to answer that by visualizing Earth’s immediate stellar neighborhood using WebGL, CSS3D, and Web Audio. Take a tour through the neighborhood, or zoom around on your own, and marvel at the vast scale & beauty of our galaxy. If you’d like to read more about this experiment, head over to the Chrome Blog: http://goo.gl/rno5O

Does Language Influence Culture?

Oh yes, new cognitive research suggests that language profoundly influences the way we see the world. 

"All this new research shows us that the languages we speak not only reflect or express our thoughts, but also shape the very thoughts we wish to express. The structures that exist in our languages profoundly shape how we construct reality, and help make us as smart and sophisticated as we are."

"Be curious. Read widely. Try new things.
I think a lot of what people call intelligence just boils down to curiosity."

Sehr gemütliches kleines Café. Beim Betreten fühlt man sich direkt in eine andere Zeit versetzt. Jahrzehntealte Stühle, Möbel, Accessoires. An warmen Tagen gibt es sogar die Möglichkeit draussen auf der wild bewachsenen Terasse auf dem Hinterhof zu essen oder zu trinken. Tageszeitungen liegen aus und können umsonst gelesen werden. Die Bedienung ist sehr nett und nicht aufdringlich. Ein separat abgetrennter Raum für Raucher ist ebenfalls vorhanden. Nicht üblich heutzutage. Im Großen und Ganzen bin ich sehr zufrieden :)

Sehr freundliches Personal und eine kompetente Beratung. Es war ebenfalls kein Problem zwei Fahrräder auszuleihen und zur Probe ein paar Runden durch den Stadtpark zu drehen. Kann ich nur weiter empfehlen. Rob Zen

Ein Muss für jeden Vegetarier oder den, der es mal werden möchte. Sehr leckere Suppen, Baguettes und andere leichte Gerichte. Kaffee & Co. alles aus nachhaltigem Anbau, sehr umweltbewusst. Die Bedienung war auch sehr freundlich. Zum Lesen und stöbern gibt es einige gute Magazine (z.B. GEO). Bei gutem Wetter gibt es auch die Möglichkeit draussen zu essen. Das Preisniveau ist normaler Durchschnitt. Klein aber fein, bin sehr zufrieden :)
