+John Hardy not a Turnbull fan's commentary is gold right there.
 
A much abused term: Antisemitism.

The problem on the left is not antisemitism or racism. The problem is the same all over: a reliance on poorly researched factoids, a faulty grasp of history and a general intellectual laziness. In this they are not unique. Unfortunately this is typical of most people.

But let's be clear: criticising the actions of the state of Israel and it's illegal occupation of the West Bank and its endless blockade of the Gaza strip is not the same thing as racism against Jewish people. People who use the term antisemitism to describe this criticism are conflating two completely different things and debasing the value of that word.

Israel was built on the back of European guilt about the Nazis and the Holocaust. This has made their policies very difficult to discuss without falling into various traps. But Israel is in reality a fairly typical state which remains to this day dominated by a highly nationalistic political doctrine. This has often led them to enact racist policies against its Arab minority and against the stateless Palestinian population.

It is not racist to point this out. It is in fact clearly anti-racist.

EDIT: apparently it really is a hoax.

You would really think that these things only still happen in the domain of old UNIX jokes and BOFH articles. But "rm -rf {foo}/{foo}"... That's really gotta create a sickening feeling in the stomach. 
A man appears to have deleted his entire company with one mistaken piece of code. By accidentally telling his computer to delete everything in his servers, hosting provider Marco Marsala has seemingly removed all trace of his company and the websites that he looks after for his customers.

The hedge fund manager David Tepper’s relocation to Florida is a case study in how tax collection changes when income becomes concentrated in the hands of a few.

Fucking geek men. Your moms should lock you in your basement AND cut off your fiber until y'all learn what it is to exist in a society.

One of the highlights of this trip. The location for the shooting scene in Untouchables. Hallowed ground.

Old school Italian joint that's rich on vibe and good food. I had the fusilli with pork shoulder ragu and it was nicely chewy with the correct amount of richness in the ragu to go with it. The cappellini was excellent too, light and fluffy on the outside and with a burst of cheese inside.

Patchy service, more due to the staff trying to do to much themselves rather than a bad attitude. The food more than makes up for it. The rum battered fried chicken is wonderfully tender inside with a crisp crunch on the outside. The gumbo had so many different textures to it, down to the mashed potatoes which seemed to alternate between fine mash and bites of crunchy young potato. Very highly recommended. Just call ahead because seats are really limited.

Given the number of tourists crowding this place, it's easy to think that this old restaurant is probably just riding on its past reputation and the food here is probably just blah. How wrong were we to assume that. It's true that they didn't seem to fix up the place to follow with the times, but they've kept the quality of the food as good as the old times as well. Your old Asian grandfather would approve of this joint.

Generally high standard for what we ordered on our first time here, which was fried calamari, tagliolini tartufo and Italian sausage pizza. Portions aren't big but adequate to come away not feeling hungry. Prices are reasonable for a quiet Soi in Bangkok suburbia. Ambience is nice and quiet on a Sunday night, with customers dropping in regularly while never filling it up. I'd come back here again readily.

Nothing particularly new about this dessert place. They try to mash up popular local dessert items such as lod Chong with coffee but it's doesn't really work.

Rooms are very nice. Service is reasonably good. The layout is designed such that you'd pass by the reception lobby for everything, which makes sense. The one big flaw is that the internet is consistently slow as a dog in a hot summer's day. You'd have to pony up more for better internet, which I feel to be an unreasonable request. We've paid quite a bit for our room already, thank you very much.
