This thing has to die. I don't care if we all get a free unicorn from it, this is a completely unacceptable way to make laws.
 
Katja Kipping, a member of the German Parliament, was granted two hours to read the super-secret Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership treaty between the United States and the European Union. The secrecy was suffocating. "I am not allowed to tell you anything about the text I read. But I never signed anything to say I can’t reveal what I DIDN’T read. [...] I read nothing to alleviate my concern that the US side wishes to make life more difficult for public and community enterprises and to secure better terms for transnational corporations in the battle for public tenders. I also read nothing to calm my fears that EU negotiators are prepared to sacrifice our social and environmental standards for the prospect of winning lucrative contracts for big European firms. I read nothing that would lead me to reconsider my previous criticism that consumer protection plays no part in TTIP, other than to proclaim free market competition to be the highest form of consumer protection that exists. [...]

"It is revealing in itself that the Ministry for Economic Affairs is prepared to go to such lengths in order to keep the text of TTIP under wraps. And they have every reason for doing so. Anyone who was going into these negotiations to enhance environmental protection, consumer protection, and labour standards would have nothing to fear from transparency. Anyone who’s engaged in selling out democracy, on the other hand, is obviously going to want to avoid public scrutiny." (War on Want):

Katja Kipping was one of the first German MPs to gain access to the new TTIP reading room opened in Berlin this week, and she has written up a report of her experience. We thought it was well worth reading, so here's a translation.

I just watched this for the the first time in maybe 20 years. I'm pretty sure that if these people were all Japanese, I would be asking "WTF Japan?". So, WTF USA?

Interesting. I felt that it was that way when I was in school too. At lunch, lots of boys played soccer while girls did, whatever girls did.

As someone who has repaired 5 or 6 phones and tablets in the last few years, I like this. Android Nexus devices have been pretty good in this respect so far but getting it into law for all devices would be great. Of course this is US law but itd be a good start.
As all our things become ‘smart,’ companies are increasingly saying that fixing them is illegal.

Update from school camp

"The children had a great afternoon yesterday, enjoying their rotational activities, as well as eating a hearty dinner of marinated chicken and ice-cream."

That sounds like my kind of dinner.

I hope the children were spun around in a chair before the hearty dinner.
