$900M in tax dollars to spot pale-faced yawners, at the same odds as chance. #Government   #arrogance  and #ineptitude  all rolled into one.

Fidgeting, whistling, sweaty palms. These are just a few of the suspicious signs that the Transportation Security Administration directs its officers to look out for in airport travelers, according to a confidential document obtained exclusively by The Intercept.

I haven't had a drop of soda in more than fifteen years, and it's stories like this that constantly remind me why I'm glad I don't go near the stuff.

I'd just finished a Mountain Dew, my first love, which I drank whenever I was thirsty. My mom called me to the kitchen for dinner, and I stood up. But as I made my way across the living room, everything got dark. I could feel my heart throbbing in my...

You should quite literally keep your eyes on the prize. "Attention narrowing" will make you think distances are closer & exercise seem less strenuous.

If you want to run faster, focus on the finish line. No, that's just not a cheesy motto for achieving success. According to fascinating new research from psychologists at New York University, it's a fairly literal truth of human motivation. T...

The FBI is letting people go free rather than revealing details about Stingrays (fake cell phone 'towers') used to catch them.

Amazing.

The FBI has a secret device to locate criminal suspects, but they would apparently rather let suspects go free than reveal in court the details of the high tech tracker.

Dear internet: "to serve me relevant advertising" is never a good reason to do anything.

This more than adequately says everything I wanted to say about the ridiculousness that +Paul Krugman (@nytimeskrugman) was spouting a bit ago.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-03-23/paul-krugman-wrong-about-uk-and-borrowing
Krugman wants his US readers to believe that all proper economists now agree that cutting deficits was a bad mistake, and it’s only self-interested finance types and ideologically-motivated politicians and think-tankers that take a different view. But that’s nonsense. Just think about it: “Everyone agrees that austerity was a mistake”… apart from every government in Europe except the Greeks, and the economists and many of the civil servants that ...

This is indeed poignant.
 
My cousin recently shared this, I find it very apt.

(I also posted this review to Trip Advisor.) This has to be one of the best kept secrets in Limassol. Slightly tucked away off the main road across from the Four Seasons hotel, this place looks unassuming from the outside. Blended in with the dozens of other local eateries, it quickly stands out once you start eating. My wife and I went in February, so we had the place to ourselves for the most part. The kitchen was staffed by an older gentleman (presumably the proprietor) and a younger man (presumably his son). The menu was the first evidence that this is a quality establishment - instead of a slapdash listing of food like many places on the island, it was a well-bound thick book with Greek and English, and pictures where appropriate. We had hummus with pita bread and garlic bread as appetizers. The garlic bread was crisp and delicious, and slightly burnt around the edges to maximise the flavour. The pita bread was the perfect warm temperature, and contrasted with the colder hummus quite nicely. The hummus itself had just the right amounts of olive oil and paprika, and held its own aside from the bread. My wife's fish soup was delicious, with the fish complemented highly with the choice of vegetables, in a well-rounded flavour profile that my wife thoroughly enjoyed. I had the dolames, which is shredded pork and rice wrapped in vine leaves and cooked in a hearty tomato sauce, which came with a plate of vegetables (salad-like, but more than salad) and potato wedges. It's tough to describe the flavour combinations that were evoked with the dolames, except to say that I don't know that I've ever had all the parts of my tongue working together like that before. There was a tzatziki sauce on the side that somehow made it even better (adding to the texture and muting the temperature just a bit in a good way) and it was simpy fantastic, insofar as words are inadequate to do the experience justice. On asking for the bill, we were given complimentary galaktoboureko, a sweet dessert which neither of us had room for until we actually tried the first bite. Suddenly, we found the room, and the plates were both empty in a couple of minutes. We both wholeheartedly recommend this place!

Moving to the UK from the States was far easier than it would have otherwise been without Foxtons. The ability to do everything online meant that other than seeing the property I could do everything without having to travel overseas (and this included documents & fees). Their service was helpful and friendly, and I recommend them highly!
