Anyone else notice that at about 2:30 he said "we can eliminate our addiction to oil and coal", then the symbols for oil, coal and nuclear disappeared?

+malarbusto who cares if America consumes 30% less NG. We are currently building around 5 natural gas liquefaction export terminals for billions of dollars each. The rest of the world is planning on 10,000 additional coal plants in the next decades... America shifting its consumption of energy marginally does squat to make the world a greener place... I am just trying to be honest. Understand the FF companies are international, all this crap from RMI is just "green propaganda"

With Verbling you can now find German speakers (amongst other languages) to speak to.  Go and check it out.

Just thought I'd mention www.verbling.com
It is something similar to chatroulette but aims to pair you up with someone who speaks the language you are learning and who is trying to learn your language.  Unfortunately it only does spanish/english at the minute, but if your learning German go ahead and sign up anyway, the more interest people show the faster they will open the doors for German as well.

Ok finally deciding to set myself a goal for German.  Inspired by this post:
http://www.fluentin3months.com/fi3m-challenge/ I've decided to take the CEFRL B2 test.  Still very much in the early stages of researching it, but I'm gonna find out if there is any chance of me sitting the test in Scotland sometime in October.  If anyone knows anything about this let me know, you'd be doing me a huge favour.
Now that I've sat three of these diploma examinations (French, Spanish and German), I feel like I can give a useful summary for those cu

Also although I don't have anything booked yet, I went ahead and just bought this book 'MIT Erfolg Zum Goethe-Zertifikat: Ubungsbuch B2 MIT CD' by Andrea Frater anyway.  I figure having a look at the exercises with plenty of notice should give me an idea what the next few months have in store for me.

A decent TV show for anyone learning German - "Türkisch für Anfänger"
If you can find all of the episodes or even just a complete season in one place with subtitles (English and/or German) let me know.

As there is obviously no OnlyGerman video on youtube, this one is alreadx english subbed

I have invites to Duolingo.  Let me know if you want one.  Encase you don't already know what it is here's a quick explanation:
Duolingo Intro

It's currently invite only and the only languages available are German, Spanish and French.

Ah right I see.  What's your MSc in? Oh and by the way, not sure if you would have seen this or not but I was in the Rankine building about 2 weeks ago and as you came in there is an A4 sized magazine promoting the electronics department, the whole front cover is taken up by a picture of you Rana Hassan and our robot.

Great little pub with a very unique style. There is quite commonly live traditional Irish music at the weekends. I would recommend it to anyone passing through Cushendall.
