I came across articles in two very different online publications (my local news website and c|net) about the death of the Comcast deal.

http://www.philly.com/philly/business/20150426_How_opponents_finally_brought_down_Comcast-Time_Warner_deal.html

http://www.cnet.com/news/how-net-neutrality-helped-kill-the-comcast-time-warner-cable-merger/

Interesting reading these in conjunction with each other.
In Glover Park Group's ninth-floor offices on F Street in Washington, the Stop Mega Comcast Coalition met weekly on Thursday afternoons. It was there, in the lobbying firm's conference room, that the 29-member coalition plotted against Philadelphia-based Comcast Corp.'s $45 billion acquisition of Time Warner Cable Inc.

M.C. Farine is a bread blogger. I find her recent post enchanting, from the photo of the bakery's building to the revelation that this bakery identifies which mill (including in-house) milled each grain in the bread.
I wish I could tell you more about E5 Bakehouse and its bakers but both the shop and the lab were so busy when we arrived that I didn't dare interrupt by asking questions. We were welcome warmly though and when he heard I was a bread blogger, Jean Kearn, the French barista (a talented musician ...

I hope to go and pay them a visit next time I am in London.

There are more and more of these bakeries in UK. Rediscovering #realbread is big at the moment.

Aside from the use of a common journalistic technique ("4 surprising facts") which I find is often used to lure readers through sensationalism, this article seems to present a balanced, reasoned review of the role of wheat and gluten (and several other food components) in diet.
Why ancient grains aren't a panacea, and other revelations from a new scientific report.

+1 for the bread art :-) Good article too. Interesting how sourdough reduces the active gluten.

When Sarah sings this solo, melancholy and anguish meld with a certain sweetness and soaring lyricism to ground this prayer in a rising hope. But everyone who has not felt good enough, everyone with vultures and thieves at their back, everyone brought to their knees by sweet madness and glorious sadness, everyone knows the pain and discord felt while being pulled from the wreakage.

In this duet, the vocal play between Sarah and Josh embody that dissonance, adding depth and power to the the song. Again, may you find some comfort here.

+richard g indeed, quite annoying, especially if done to a few communities, and posted privately. I tend to block and mute folks who do this often.

I just read an article about a pretty wise guy. Certainly the article focuses on Elliot Royce's practice and teaching of how to fall (a valuable skill as one gets older). But what sets this guy head-and-shoulders above most ever else is his attitude towards life. He summarizes it neatly in telling about his success in a race he recently ran:

"I was the last one to finish, but I won my age division — because I was the only one in it."
Elliott Royce estimates that he has fallen down at least 15,000 times over the past 10 years.

+Jim Philips, there was a couple in Pittsburgh some years back who got married while skydiving. It was the first time skydiving for both of them. They were in their 80s!

A wonderful video of bread shaping techniques that are different than I learned.

+Philippe Le Toquin he starts the boule with a batard style fold up then works that round, does this not make for a lumpy boule? I aim for good form with a noticable tension stretch on the skin, with an economy of moves ,without knocking all the gas out of the loaf.

Let me introduce myself:

My wife and I bought our first Chromebook in October and will likely buy a second soon. Both learning how to fully utilize the value of the Chromebook and researching our next purchase brought me to this community.

For our first Chromebook, we bought a refurbed HP 14 with Celeron processor (and T-Mobile account, which we've rarely used as WiFi is ubiquitous in our haunts). We're pleased with it.

In considering our next Chromebook purchase, we're pondering another HP 14, but are also considering going with something smaller and lighter. More importantly at this point, we're wondering about "real world comparisons" between the Celeron processor and the new NVIDIA Tegra.

The latest version of the HP 14 has the new processor, and CNet's review calls it snappy. Another review, however, says that the NVIDIA is noticeably slower than the Celeron.

Thoughts on this?

+Doug Essinger-Hileman I don't use any Linux distributions on Chrome OS devices. But from what I understand, extensions like Chrubuntu or crouton are only available for Intel chips.

I've joined and will see how the community develops.

One suggestion: the community tagline says "for Mac." I'm on a Windows machine, so if the conversation is limited to the Mac version, then the community will be irrelevant to me. If you intend for conversation across both platforms, you might do better advertising that.

This has long been one of my favorite songs. In visiting a link I had saved earlier, I was sent to McLachlan's recording of the prayer of St. Francis. Before I could close YouTube, I was taken to this song (different rendition, which rightly suggests I'll be posting a followup).

Enjoy. More importantly, may you find some comfort here.

While wheat isn't specifically mentioned, I believe that the insights
of these researchers applies just as much to "our" seeds as any others.

Would you believe there are patented seeds now? And you get sued if some get into the ground without permission? Someone needs to torch places like Monsanto, and then start witch hunting all lobby groups, as politicians can't seem to stay with their grubby fingers out of the lobby money jar :-(
