More #brexit stuff. If your time is limited, just read from the "So what should be done?" paragraph on.

Is there anyone from my circles supportive of Brexit? My G+ and facebook streams are full of unhappy people, I wonder why...

Opinions are opinions, but one thing that I found disturbing is reading from several people (which I know as smart and democracy-loving) ideas such as:
- voting should be restricted to certain age groups
- certain technical decisions shouldn't be left to popular voting

Sorry, that's not democracy works. If you don't like the results, don't blame others. If your arguments were so good, but other people didn't buy them, you probably failed to explain them.
Instead of thinking that people with a different opinion are idiots, do spend more time with them. Try to understand their reasons, tell them with your ideas, propose your point of view.

You're right about democracy. On the other hand most countries have a higher bar for constitutional changes than 50%, for a reason. This is effectively a constitutional question. This vote is a real reflection of anger in a large segment of the country that feels they are being left behind by changes that they cannot control, led by people who don't care about them. That's understandable. The consequences of this vote, however, will be horrible for those same angry people.

Italian TV falling victim of Russian propaganda, or unbiased journalists finally visiting the war zone from the other side?
Make your guess :-)
English: This reportage on the war in Ukraine was aired on Italian state television (RAI) on June 13th, 2016, in the 20:30 edition of the news report (TG2). It has a tone a bit too melodramatic for my taste, and gives debated numbers (such as the 1.5 millions refugees to Russia) as an ...

I'm building a desktop version of the Imaginario photo manager, and I've reached a state where I could use some help from people who want to test it and report (tons of) bugs.
 
Imaginario, from phone to desktop. :-)
Last February Imaginario has reached feature completion, meaning that I'm quite satisfied with the features it offers (but if you find it lacking, then by all means please let me know by filing a bug report). I recently bought an Ubuntu tablet, the BQ M10, and verified that Imaginario works fine ...

Ah, indeed, I'll continue developing the "touch" version too, and use any components suitable for the desktop as they get created.

The anti-establishment Five Star Movement makes big gains in Italy, winning the mayoral contests in Rome and Turin, early results show.

It's always puzzling how hackers are able to infiltrate the computers of high-ranking U.S. politicians, while being totally ignorant of proxies and SSH hostings.
Or how russophobic our Western World has become.

Russian government hackers have breached the Democratic National Committee for opposition research on Donald Trump, officials say.

"Russian Hacker" is a brand nowadays, so they are using it as such, most likely to cover their own ineptitude. Beats being hacked by a random teenage script kiddie. Still, there might be some real Russian hackers involved. You never know.

+Alberto Mardegan It is a tiny channel with almost no cable presence, paid subscription and whopping 65000 viewers. It is being advertised as the "positive" channel and does try staying as positive as possible in the middle of the current clusterfuck. Its only distinguishing feature is that it is the last remaining independent TV channel in Russia. A lot of people, including many government officials (!) keep watching it as the last semi-reliable news source. And that is exactly why government propaganda puppets are trying so hard to "prove" its subversiveness.

Now, to the matter of the "investigation" at hand, if you read closer into the screenshots, you will find the following:

1) The money is paid for broadcasting TV content showing off EU funded projects implemented in Russia prior to 2014.

2) The money was officially committed in 2014 and thus should be part of the 2014 RainTV budget, even though the final payment made it through in April 2015. The budget this guy is questioning is the 2015 budget though.

3) The content in question can be viewed here:

https://tvrain.ru/teleshow/rossija_eto_evropa/

It is series of short segments titled "Russia is Europe". The content is clearly labelled as financed by EU, both at the web site and in the video.

4) I am not sure how well you know Russian, but if you view the actual content, you will see that it is absolutely toothless, in the most positive sense. Nothing particularly subversive there, EU money or not. After all, Alberto, will you really, truly argue that Russia is not Europe? :)
