Youtube just offered me this image. Definitely going in opposite directions over the EU. Can we really fit them inside the LHC, accelerate them to high speed and then smash them together? I'd go for that.

I've posted on StackOverflow, but maybe someone here will have good thoughts about this. How to use different Junit categories in the android gradle plugin?

Too many people confuse remote working: which can enable a better work/life balance, with flexible working, which can lead to a lack of relaxation.

Practices such as working from home could do more harm than good, research finds, as many employees never ‘switch off’

"Mobile-first refers to the increasingly common practice of designing and building content and apps for optimal user experience on smartphones and tablets before adapting them for the larger screens of PCs and laptops.

Most mobile-first apps, however, are not authentically-mobile. This is because they fail to take full advantage of the powerful capabilities inherent to mobile devices to deliver novel and differentiating functionality, which is the primary focus of authentically-mobile."

"The current Beamly native applications have also been discontinued, and are no longer be available in the Apple and Android stores."

Is this the first time an Editor's Choice app has been discontinued by the producer?
