Brilliant knowledge card showing one city's population growth vs. two other cities of similar size. Fascinating to learn that Leipzig and Dresden are overtaking Hannover.

The reason I looked up the population of Leipzig was to see how it compared to the figure of 300,000 who demonstrated for reform of the GDR in 1989. As I expected, that was an overwhelming number in relation to the city's population.

Terrific reportage on the women in Greece who sparked a protest movement after being sacked from their jobs as cleaners. A great look at the human side of a story all too often discussed as merely a game of poker among elites.

Fifty-four years after Jane Jacobs penned these sage words, I think the appreciation for them has truly arrived.

I've always found it weird when suburbs try to invent a downtown. They never seem able to get it right. Washington State's most historic city - Tumwater - had its' downtown gutted to benefit the gods of I-5 back in the '50s or maybe early '60s. They have been trying to come up with a downtown ever since. I saw the same thing happen in Lakewood, Colorado when we lived there.

Cards read "a song by [performer]" rather than attributing them to the composer(s), a choice which rather breaks down when it comes to standards or classical music. I've logged feedback on a few in an effort to highlight this issue. 
Google now shows song lyrics in a new search card and links to Google Play for the full lyrics. For example, a search for [your song lyrics] in the US shows some of the lyrics from Elton John's song and links to a Google Play...

Fine sweeping architecture of the departure concourse marred by the inevitable cheap-looking, in-your-face shopping module. Security and passport control pleasantly efficient. Some decent food alternatives.

Brilliant retro design has made an airy multi-colour, multi-restaurant space out of what looks to have been an iron-framed market hall at one time. The tapas place at the rear has a clever business model, with waiters hawking tapas in two-minute intervals with an enthusiasm that's hard to refuse. Great fun and good food.

Fantastic, primordial peasanty breads, from heavy pumpernickel to still-substantial wheat breads.

Decently comfortable budget hotel near the big office buildings around Gloriès. Nice breakfast buffet rather sullied by dance-music and heavy-metal videos. Please, folks, there is a time and place for everything and 7:30 at the breakfast table is not this reviewer's chosen spot for power chords and drum machines.
