BREAKING: Sepp Blatter Resigns as FIFA President

I'm giving all the credit to John Oliver for this one.
Sepp Blatter has resigned as Fifa president amid growing pressure following widespread allegations of corruption at football's world governing body. Blatter - who won a fifth term on Friday - had been under intense pressure to step down since senior Fifa officials were arrested on a string of corruption charges last week. Blatter confirmed: "An extraordinary congress is to be called to elect my successor as soon as possible."

Interesting POV by elementary OS founder. 
 
Well honestly what this makes clear to me is that Jon isn't interested in being respectful or diplomatic. The UCC's responses are carefully thought out and trying to be as respectful and clear as possible. Jon's are flippant and make accusations. They're non-answers and to me they don't come across as respectful of +Bryan Lunduke's time either. He just seems unwilling to accept their responses and honestly I sympathize with the UCC here. "We're working on it", "We don't know yet", and "We don't have the power to change that" are totally valid responses that I've often seen met with attitude in elementary as well. It definitely sounds like he needs to take a step back and cool off. Hats off to UCC for keeping cool, and honestly respect to +Mark Shuttleworth for having the guts to tell it like it is.
In the wake of the Ubuntu Community Council's separation with Jonathan Riddell, I reached out to both, along with the Kubuntu Council, to get every side of the story. Mark Shuttleworth chimed in rather candidly himself.

I also feel this is an underhand culling of Kubuntu distro itself, given the increased attention it has enjoyed since release of plasma 5.x as compared to any other flavour of Ubuntu.

To be honest today Google's design is much more modern, esthetic and mature than Apple' design. I use an iPad and it reminds me of those plastikish Java apps in Windows Xp...
Google's transformation into a company that creates beautiful software is the story of how tech itself has evolved in the mobile era.

Jaime Culebras offers a spectacular photograph of a gravid female Reticulated Glass Frog. The belly is completely transparent, so all the internal organs are visible. The liver, heart and digestive organs are covered by a white lining.
