"Europe faces the risk of another major war. In 1939, Nazi Germany’s invasion of Poland triggered the Second World War. Today the possible trip wire is not Poland, but Ukraine. And the aggressor will not be Adolf Hitler, but Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin." - THAT WAS WRITTEN IN 2008!
"Under his iron-fisted grip, Russia has been transformed into a gangster state. Democracy has been dismantled, corruption is rampant, journalists are murdered, dissidents are imprisoned and the media is controlled by the regime. Flush with petrodollars, Moscow is seeking to restore the Great Russian Empire. It poses a strategic threat to its neighbors and to the West." - ⓒⓔⓐ
"Moscow is on the march. After invading Georgia and establishing Russia’s dominance over the secessionist regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, Mr. Putin is now bent on dismembering Ukraine. The Russian strongman has made no secret of his contempt for Kiev’s independence. At a NATO summit in April, he told President Bush that Ukraine is “not even a real state,” and that much of its... more... - ⓒⓔⓐ

"The battle over Ukraine is more than a regional test of wills. It is a clash over the future of Europe - and of Russia’s role in it. Orthodox Slavophiles, such as Mr. Putin, dream of a “Slavic Union” composed of Russia, Belarus and Ukraine." - ⓒⓔⓐ
"And it is also why Moscow desperately wants to derail Ukraine’s integration into the Euro-Atlantic alliance. A prosperous and pluralist Orthodox Slavic state on Russia’s borders would provide an attractive alternative to the Kremlin’s brutal dictatorship.... And Mr. Putin is willing to do anything to stop this from happening - including possibly plunging Europe into another disastrous bloodbath." - ⓒⓔⓐ

The disappeared: Chicago police detain Americans at abuse-laden 'black site' -
The disappeared: Chicago police detain Americans at abuse-laden 'black site'
The Chicago police department operates an off-the-books interrogation compound, rendering Americans unable to be found by family or attorneys while locked inside what lawyers say is the domestic equivalent of a CIA black site. The facility, a nondescript warehouse on Chicago’s west side known as Homan Square, has long been the scene of secretive work by special police units. Interviews with local attorneys and one protester who spent the better part of a day shackled in Homan Square describe operations that deny access to basic constitutional rights. Alleged police practices at Homan Square, according to those familiar with the facility who spoke out to the Guardian after its investigation into Chicago police abuse, include: Keeping arrestees out of official booking databases. Beating by police, resulting in head wounds. Shackling for prolonged periods. Denying attorneys access to the “secure” facility. Holding people without legal counsel for between 12 and 24 hours, including people as young as 15. - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet
"The secretive warehouse is the latest example of Chicago police practices that echo the much-criticized detention abuses of the US war on terrorism. While those abuses impacted people overseas, Homan Square – said to house military-style vehicles, interrogation cells and even a cage – trains its focus on Americans, most often poor, black and brown.

This weekend I learned that there are people who think that we live inside a concave/hollow earth. I don't even... I can think of three ways to debunk the theory, but I doubt they would even listen.
Lunar eclipses. Hard to get a Lunar eclipse when you can't get the earth between the Sun and Moon. - Joe
Sun set and sun rise. I guess they think the sun (and the Moon?) goes through holes in the top and bottom of the hollow Earth. The problem is that everyone would see the sunrise and set at the same time, and that is not the case. Peeps in England and Australia see the sun rise and set at different times. [but with the Sun rising and setting east and west, are the holes in the middle of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans?] - Joe
Apparently, Lawrence Livermore (where my brother worked for many years) used to have a group devoted to explaining everything in terms of a hollow earth, but AFAIK it was all a highly sophisticated joke group. Still, you know, enough scientists and engineers can explain almost *anything* plausibly. - Walt Crawford
Stars not visible. There are some stars that are not visible to people in the northern hemisphere. If I go down to FLA or to Australia, I can see different sets of stars. If we are inside a hollow Earth, all of us can see all of the stars all of the time. That is not what we see. - Joe
(I have no personal knowledge of this group, but there were rumors. You don't get much besides rumors from Lawrence Livermore.) - Walt Crawford
It was this article. The hollow earth guy started commenting. - Joe
Thanks Walt. I thought flat earthers were nuts--this takes the cake. - Joe
The Wizard of Christchurch had a map that explained the hollow-earth theory. (It's printed on the back of his map of the world which has south at the top.) I think there's some stuff about light bending which explains the stars and sunset things. Not sure if he addresses lunar eclipses. - Deborah Fitchett
Well, in their defense, God did tell Moses to take off his sandals because he was standing on hollow ground. - Micah from FFHound!
^ then when would it have been appropriate for Moses to put his shoes back on? =P - Andrew C (✔)
I find the thread quite amusing. And while I realize that anything is possible, the premise of the post is literally giving me a headache. Please tell me you're joking, Joe. - MoTO Boychick Devil
Since Joe's been giving reasons why the hollow-earth "theory" requires some, uh, advanced views on physical laws, I think it's safe to say he isn't advocating for the theory. - Walt Crawford
Sorry for the rebump, but there are people who actually believe in the concave/hollow earth concept. NOT ME. - Joe
Oh I get that. Sorry if I wasn't clear. I was just hoping the whole thing was a put on. - MoTO Boychick Devil

Lawmaker Asks If Women Can Swallow Camera... For Gynecological Exams
"During a debate over abortion legislation Monday between Idaho lawmakers, Republican state representative Vito Barbieri asked whether it would be possible for a woman to swallow a small camera, so that doctors might perform a remote gynecological examination (presumably, à la capsule endoscopy). According to the Associated Press, Barbieri's question "came as the House State Affairs Committee heard nearly three hours of testimony on a bill that would ban doctors from prescribing abortion-inducing medication through telemedicine."" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
" Dr Julie Madsen was testifying in opposition to the bill when Barbieri asked the question. Madsen replied that would be impossible because swallowed pills do not end up in the vagina. "Fascinating. That makes sense," Barbieri said, amid the crowd's laughter. " - Jessie

Straight Talk for White Men []
(via Nakachi on FB) From Kristof's post: "SUPERMARKET shoppers are more likely to buy French wine when French music is playing, and to buy German wine when they hear German music. That’s true even though only 14 percent of shoppers say they noticed the music, a study finds." ... "Those studies are a reminder that we humans are perhaps less rational than we would like to think, and more prone to the buffeting of unconscious influences." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
"It’s not that we white men are intentionally doing anything wrong, but we do have a penchant for obliviousness about the way we are beneficiaries of systematic unfairness. Maybe that’s because in a race, it’s easy not to notice a tailwind, and white men often go through life with a tailwind, while women and people of color must push against a headwind." Also, if there's a tailwind, that may imply that I'm not as fast as I thought I was. - Eivind

After some deliberation (which began long before I was let go from my job), I've decided to move back to Montreal. Barring unforeseen circumstances, I'll be in La Belle Province by 01 April.
I've lamented having left Montreal since arriving in Victoria. Yes, my parents were and are my main reason for coming, and that's gone wonderfully. We've never been closer. - Brent Schaus
However, there are more job opportunities in Montreal, a much lower cost of living, and a lifestyle and culture that works for me. - Brent Schaus
The biggest difference between this time and last? I now have 2+ years experience as a technical writer. - Brent Schaus
Wow, I'm surprised the cost of living is lower. - Spidra Webster
Much lower. Victoria and Vancouver have the highest costs of living in the country, I believe. - Brent Schaus
Here's a comparison of the average rent by city, in Canada: - Brent Schaus
The only things that could derail these plans are if I received a whopper of a job offer, or if my EI doesn't go through. I'll find out about the former when I meet with my former CEO this week. I want to confirm that he's still giving me a stellar reference (they loved my work, and were sad to see me go). As for the latter, so far so good... full speed ahead. I'll know in a few weeks for sure, but it should be okay. - Brent Schaus

Bren, that would be fantastic! We could get into a lot of trouble in that town :) - Brent Schaus

мм, моё чувство этого языка говорит мне про другое; reveal (как оппозиция conceal) - это не совсем то, что discover (of what was not known beforehand). это, скорее, "обнаружил", "раскрыл", "выявил", такое. а уж в томографы-то сейчас какой только хрени не суют. но я не буду спорить с Гроссмейстером Нарратива, "ему видней" ^_^ - ⓒⓔⓐ
я понимаю, что reveal слово с несколькими значениями, но заголовок построен так, чтобы немножко наебать читателя. Слово используется именно в значении «обнаружил» — а вчитаешься — там «проявил», ну.

"Are big cities different from smaller cities mainly in their size? Or do they differ in other ways that go beyond simple population size? Recent research on urban scaling has answered this question definitively for contemporary cities. Large cities ARE different from smaller cities in ways that transcend their size. They aren't simply larger. Yet many of the changes that come with size turn out to be linked systematically to population size." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"For example, large cities of course have more miles of roads and and electrical cables than smaller cities. But when we look at roads or cable per person (miles per capita), the quantities are smaller for the biggest cities.

DNA indicates long-ago Southland wolf was actually a Mexican gray - LA Times
"The only wolf ever documented in Southern California may have been a victim of mistaken identity nearly a century ago. The 100-pound male wolf was pursuing a bighorn sheep in the Mojave Desert's rugged Providence Mountains in 1922 when a steel-jaw trap clamped onto one of its legs. Based on measurements of its skull, biologists at the time determined that it was a lone Southern Rocky Mountain gray wolf that had wandered out of a population in southern Nevada. But a different story is emerging from a study of that skull at UCLA, where researchers have identified DNA markers indicating it was actually a Mexican gray wolf, the "lobo" of Southwestern lore." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Bob Wayne, an evolutionary biologist at the university, said the finding could help extend the historic range of the federally endangered Mexican gray wolf, which the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service contends ranged over parts of central and northern Mexico, western Texas, southern New Mexico and southeastern and central Arizona.
