Vorhin, beim Spaziergang über den Friedhof im Stadtteil, bekam ich Fetzen eines Gespräches von einigen Pensionären mit, die auf einer Bank saßen. Es ging um das Internet .. ob sie von Google oder Wikipedia sprachen weiss ich nicht.

Flachen Hamburger Akzent bitte dazudenken (etwa: 'bläddern')

"... man braucht gar kein Lexikon mehr."

"Jo, musst dir nicht die Wände vollstellen."

"Und auch nicht mehr blättern!"

Made my day.

"THERE is much concern these days about what’s in our dietary supplements. Are they actually filled with the ingredients that the labels promise?

Maybe, maybe not. Quality control issues in the estimated 85,000 dietary supplement products available in America should give every consumer pause. But even #vitamins themselves — the 13 dietary chemicals necessary to prevent deficiency diseases like scurvy and rickets — pose hidden hazards of their own."...
Our staples have been fortified for years, allowing us to eat badly.

Herschel's Andromeda 
Image Credit: ESA/Herschel/PACS & SPIRE Consortium, O. Krause, HSC, H. Linz
Explanation: This infrared view from the Herschel Space Observatory explores the Andromeda Galaxy, the closest large spiral galaxy to our own Milky Way. Only 2.5 million light-years distant, the famous island universe is also known to astronomers as M31. Andromeda spans over 200,000 light-years making it more than twice the size of the Milky Way. Shown in false color, the image data reveal the cool dust lanes and clouds that still shine in the infrared but are otherwise dark and opaque at visual wavelengths. Red hues near the galaxy's outskirts represent the glow of dust heated by starlight to a few tens of degrees above absolute zero. Blue colors correspond to hotter dust warmed by stars in the more crowded central core. Also a tracer of molecular gas, the dust highlights Andromeda's prodigious reservoir of raw material for future star formation.

spectacular
 
The North Devon coast often gets passed over by tourists rushing to get to neighbouring Cornwall.  It's true that Cornwall has a spectacular coast, but the North Devon coast is equally dramatic.  This picture is looking south from Hartland Quay.

The Milky Way Over the Arizona Toadstools
Which is older -- the rocks you see on the ground or the light you see from the sky? Usually it’s the rocks that are older, with their origin sediments deposited well before light left any of the stars or nebulas you see in the sky. However, if you can see, through a telescope, a distant galaxy far across the universe -- further than Andromeda or spiral galaxy NGC 7331 (inset) -- then you are seeing light even more ancient. Featured here, the central disk of our Milky Way Galaxy arches over Toadstool hoodoos rock formations in northern Arizona, USA. The unusual Toadstool rock caps are relatively hard sandstone that wind has eroded more slowly than the softer sandstone underneath. The green bands are airglow, light emitted by the stimulated air in Earth's atmosphere. On the lower right is a time-lapse camera set up to capture the sky rotating behind the picturesque foreground scene.

Der eine oder die andere benutzt Evernote für seinen digitalen Workflow - ich auch, jedenfalls noch, aber das ist eine andere Geschichte für einen anderen Artikel. Aber der Grund dafür, dass ich mich langsam von Evernote verabschiede, liegt u.a. in der Backup-Problematik; oder genauer, in dem Problem, die Dinge, die ich in Evernote ablege, daraus vernünftig und brauchbar im worst case auch w ...

Mit über 300.000 Besuchern und knapp 2400 Vorführungen im Jahr ist das Hamburger Planetarium das erfolgreichste im deutschsprachigen Raum. Passend dazu startete die neue Show: Supervulkane. Eine Veranstaltung, die die sonst so beschauliche Kuppel in Flammen hüllt. Die Show “Supervulkane: Feuervulkane im Sonnensystem” ist seit einiger Zeit (Premiere am 30.01.2015) in seiner erweiterten deutschen Fassung im Hamburger Planetarium…

You could take this article and substitute Tea Party for UKIP and it would still describe them perfectly
UKIP have updated Schrödinger’s famous thought experiment by insisting that immigrants exist in a state of both lazing around on benefits whilst simultaneously being out there stealing British jobs.

In Italy, 31 tons of seafood were labeled as “fresh” but had actually been previously frozen, then doused with a chemical containing citric acid and hydrogen peroxide to hide that it was rotting. At an Italian cheese factory, officers found expired dairy and chemicals used to make old cheese seem fresh. They also found that mozzarella was being smoked in the back of a van with burning trash as a heat source.
Fake alcohol was the biggest offender

The lower Subway of Zion National Park is known for iconic images of its emerald pools and the light entering the tube. Getting there requires a good deal of efforts, so it is very natural for photographers to focus on the main subjects of the canyon. I got those frames too, however during my visit I was equally impressed by the view towards the end of the hike. Huge rocks on both sides of the canyon walls resembled legs of giant creatures guarding the secret path and if one needed a proof of the mystery of this place one should look no further than at the reflection. Enjoy!
