"It was terrible science. The results are meaningless, and the health claims that the media blasted out to millions of people around the world are utterly unfounded. Here's how we did it."

“Slim by Chocolate!” the headlines blared. A team of German researchers had found that people on a low-carb diet lost weight 10 percent faster if they ate a chocolate bar every day. It made the front page of Bild, Europe’s largest daily newspaper, just beneath their update about the Germanwings crash. From there, it ricocheted around the internet and beyond, making news in more than 20 countries and half a dozen languages. It was discussed on tel...

Pretty interesting (and depressing) article on the Japanese housing situation.
While "empty-house syndrome" may seem like a problem mostly afflicting rural Japan, it is already an issue in metropolises such as Tokyo and Osaka, and will become more so in the years to come.

This is of course all the Bedouin's fault... somehow, although it's rather inconvenient that they don't seem to be lobbing ineffective rockets at anyone or getting up to any other bad guy antics but I'm sure they've done something to merit their homes being demolished and a settlement built on top of them

I'd like to say that the strongest opposition actually is from within Israel, and the recent election was so close to seeing some movement in the direction of sanity... but then Bibi managed to rally a surprise re-election, and now it looks even worse.

That said, maybe we can rustle up some pressure from the Jewish diaspora. We're working on that one...

I kind of like this Irish man.

"""
Here is a little puzzle that was put to one of the sons of Erin the other day and perplexed him unduly, for it is really quite easy. It will be seen from the illustration that he was shown a sketch of a square pen containing seven pigs. He was asked how he would intersect the pen with three straight fences so as to enclose every pig in a separate sty. In other words, all you have to do is to take your pencil and, with three straight strokes across the square, enclose each pig separately. Nothing could be simpler.

The Irishman complained that the pigs would not keep still while he was putting up the fences. He said that they would all flock together, or one obstinate beast would go into a corner and flock all by himself. It was pointed out to him that for the purposes of the puzzle the pigs were stationary. He answered that Irish pigs are not stationery—they are pork. Being persuaded to make the attempt, he drew three lines, one of which cut through a pig. When it was explained that this is not allowed, he protested that a pig was no use until you cut its throat. "Begorra, if it's bacon ye want without cutting your pig, it will be all gammon." We will not do the Irishman the injustice of suggesting that the miserable pun was intentional. However, he failed to solve the puzzle. Can you do it?

I couldn't help myself, I had to solve it. But I didn't have any paper so I drew it on the inside of my arm. (The ballpoint pen didn't work on the Nexus 9 glass.)

Fortunately my first solution was correct.

Amazing how blatantly broken this all is and yet it continues.

“People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices.”

Delicious and great value lunch, friendly staff. This place is usually full of Vietnamese people, so I guess it's authentic.

Very tasty and plenty of spiciness (ma and la). I had spicy potatoes (香辣土豆条) which was indeed spicy and beans with minced pork (干煸四季豆) which was not spicy. Both were delicious. I will be back!

Maybe I chose badly- the picture of clay pot chicken looked spicy and tasty but the reality was brown and mostly soy sauce flavoured. I found a total of 4 small pieces of dried chilli in there and a few pieces of ginger to break the monotony.
