"in 1998 more than half of people aged 16-34 living in households with incomes between 10% and 50% of the national average were buying their own homes. The percentage had dropped to 25% in 2013-14 and was on course to be 10% across the UK as a whole by 2025. In London it is forecast to be just 5% " +The Guardian

ENIAC remembered #TheIndependent
The front-page headline in The New York Times this weekend in 1946 turned out to be rather an understatement: "Electronic Computer Flashes Answers, May Speed Engineering". It referred to ENIAC, the first electronic general-purpose computer, whose 18,000 vacuum tubes and towering operational panels had just been unveiled in Philadelphia. Built for $500,000 (£4.2m today), ENIAC's main job was to make ballistics calculations (or as the newspaper obl...

I had the opportunity to learn Firefox OS.
Glad I missed it.

Once in a couple of years I have to choose to learn one or another technology.
Aside the topic, now I have to decide to go with AngularJS 2, or React JS.
One made by Google, the other by Facebook.

Thumbs up👍 for the closing paragraph of the notes:
"Music’s innate ability to be ambiguous is one of its greatest strengths and for Shostakovich it saved his life. He could express his beliefs that one day Stalin would be overthrown, that humanity could defeat tyranny, and he could survive in doing so. By substituting one tyrant for another he could compose a masterpiece which was able to be performed to millions of people in his lifetime, without betraying his conscience. This piece is not about Hitler. It is not even really about Stalin. Its timelessness and its greatness is its constant relevance. The tragedy of this piece is that there will always be tyrants, there will always be suffering. What the piece offers is the hope that despite that, the human spirit will never be broken. Evil will always be present, but so will humanity’s constant ability to be able to resist it."

"On Friday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Russia of being engaged in an "invasion" of Syria, saying it was trying to create a "boutique state" for ally President Bashar al-Assad.
Mr Erdogan said Russia and the Syrian government were together responsible for 400,000 deaths in Syria." +BBC News
Some 15,000 Syrians are massed at the Turkish border after fleeing a government offensive in Aleppo, the UN and Turkey say.
