Breitbart and other's insistence that the earth is not warming is getting more and more ridiculous. 
Note to Breitbart: Earth is not cooling, climate change is real and please stop using our video to mislead Americans.

The first picture was taken with the Fuji X100T, while the other was with my Pixel XL. Sorry to say that better optics and a larger sensor seems to be no longer a match for Google engineers' HDR algorithms. If Fuji were to license Google's tech for their cameras, I'd pay in a flash for sure.

Lol I would expect the X100T to keep more details. That APS-C sensor is almost a quarter the size of the Pixel phone itself!

The cartoon artist tries to make lots of drawings of himself and his cat. In the style of other cartoonists
I'm thinking of a man and his cat. A real man. His real cat. Then I'm imagining a bunch of world-famous cartoonists, Calvin & Hobbes' Bill Watterson, Wile E. Coyote's Chuck Jones, Gary Larson, Maurice Sendak — all of them drawing this same man and his cat. Then I'm staring at very different men and very different cats. Then I'm giggling.

The App That Runs China´s Economy - Bloomberg

Can a nation's entire economy fit on one smartphone app? In China, that day is almost here. About 700 million Chinese — more than double the entire U.S. population — use WeChat. It's an all-purpose super-app that does the job of Facebook, Uber, Paypal, Tinder and many other apps, making it an invaluable tool for the Asian nation's rising middle class. That's helped give WeChat's parent, Tencent, a stock-market valuation larger than any other company outside the U.S. — even bigger than Wal-Mart. But does WeChat actually contribute to China's GDP? Or are there better ways to measure its value? Economist Gan Li, who splits his time between the U.S. and China, and Dune Lawrence, a former Bloomberg correspondent in Beijing, join Kate and Scott to pin down the answers.
WeChat is now an invaluable part of life in the Middle Kingdom. What would happen to GDP without it?

Take It From A German: Americans Are Too Timid In Confronting Hate http://thebea.st/2hBjnwk
In Germany, we were taught over and over again that Hitler came to power because ordinary people were afraid to stand up and speak out. Americans could stand to learn that lesson now.

Oh but I explicitly avoided calling the voters "racists". That's a conscious exclusion. It would be too simple to call anyone but the most extreme bigots a racist. More likely they're not, they're voting for someone who promised to put them first, politically and economically. I do see that occuring a lot all over the world. American blue collars worried about losing their jobs to migrants and overseas competition. Thai farmers worried that industrialization of the Thai economy meaning that they're left out to dry. Japanese and European artisan farmers worried about what mass produce from China would do to their bottom lines. Malaysian workers worried about the influx of migrant Bangladeshi and Indonesian laborers slashing their wage rates.

Every one of these concerns are valid. But none of them justify being put above the priority of being a decent human being to each other.

The whole ethos of treating your neighbor right is due to the realization that competition between members of the same immediate society need not be a zero sum game. And through the centuries, the definition of neighbors have expanded beyond traditional geographical boundaries from villages to districts to provinces and now countries. At each threshold of those boundaries they've had pushback by members of the societies worried about the security of their respective positions. And repeatedly these pushbacks have proven to be irrelevant and ultimately useless. At best it was a waste of effort and at worst, it brought about mass suffering to many people during the transition phase.

No, I do NOT think that these people are racists. But they ARE selfish. And in that respect, I'm a socialist in the worst way. An inclusive society with expect baseline treatment with each other must be made a priority, regardless of your economic or social standing.

Clever phishing scheme targeting gmail users ... I guess it's not new but this is the first I've seen it. 
This is the closest I've ever come to falling for a Gmail phishing attack. If it hadn't been for my high-DPI screen making the image fuzzy… pic.twitter.com/MizEWYksBh · Tom Scott – Verified account @tomscott. This is disturbingly clever. You get sent to a text/html data URI!

Kratom has been effective in treating opioid withdrawal and chronic pain. So, naturally, the FDA wants to ban it.

A year into his tenure as CEO of Google, the low-key leader talks about what the company is, where it's going, and how it gets things done.

They were the first to see that's where the direction is going and they have such a jump on everyone. I like it! ;-)

Why Are Police Unions Blocking Reform? - The New Yorker

Their defense of officers’ working conditions is a barrier to investigating misconduct claims and getting rid of those who break the rules.

Pretty decent noodle shop, won't call it the best of anything in particular though.

Hands down the best tsukemen in Bangkok, Thailand and I suspect in many other countries as well. The master stroke is a small induction stove where you can keep your soup hot while you're slurping up the noodles. The soup is wonderfully thick and full of flavor.

Food is perfectly decent, but the last time we were here, there was a group of Thai families with kids raising hell the entire time we were there and the wait staff did nothing to control the wayward customers. I hope those customers left a big tip cos I sure didn't leave any.

Some may have complained about the price but I found the food to be commendable regardless. The banh mi sandwich was incredibly crunchy while the grilled pork was aromatic from the grill. The pho soup was nice and rich although the mu yor pork sausage could have been better. Overall a good find.

Old school Thai joint. Very good food but has the marks of overzealous marketing all over its branded facade.

The fried rice is damn good, as was the dim sum we had on a Saturday. But for some reason, the prawns in the crispy noodles with seafood tasted like they had been in walk-in for a week too many. I'd skip that the next time. Pity, cos the noodles themselves were perfectly fine.
