Why Germans Work Fewer Hours But Produce More: A Study In Culture | Knote
"[...] what many people don’t realize is that Germany is the industrial powerhouse of Europe, and is a leading manufacturer of goods for export to developing Asian nations. We don’t hear about the superiority of German engineering in Volkswagen commercials for nothing!" - Nils Sandin from Bookmarklet

How Gravity Explains Why Time Never Runs Backward | WIRED

"Even though time is such a fundamental part of our experience, the basic laws of physics don’t seem to care in which direction it goes. For example, the rules that govern the orbits of planets work the same whether you go forward or backward in time. You can play the motions of the solar system in reverse and they look completely normal; they don’t violate any laws of physics. So what distinguishes the future from the past?" - Nils Sandin from Bookmarklet

The Berlin Wall fell 25 years ago — but Germany is still divided - The Washington Post
"But numbers and images illustrating differences in lifestyles and problems between East and West Germans tell a different story. While 75 percent of Germans who live in the east said they considered their country's reunification a success in a recent survey only half of western Germans agreed. And that's not the only distinction indicating that the separation of the past prevails today." - Nils Sandin from Bookmarklet

Syracuse University bravely saves students from exposure to journalism - The Washington Post
"However, du Cille — a Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist, which I should really say three times, because he has won the award three times — was not able to speak to the students, because he was told not to come to the campus, because he was in a place where there is Ebola and that freaks some people out." - Nils Sandin from Bookmarklet

"Both law enforcement and intelligence agencies have complained that such technology will curtail their ability to do their job. In essence, US law enforcement and national security agencies want citizens to accept spying as a possibility and to rely on policy, rather than on technology, to make sure that it’s lawful." - Nils Sandin from Bookmarklet

Why Germany Is So Much Better at Training Its Workers - The Atlantic
"According to the most recent figures, 9.3 million Americans are unemployed, but 4.8 million jobs stand empty because employers can’t find people to fill them. With new technology transforming work across a range of sectors, more and more businesses are struggling to find workers with the skills to man new machines and manage new processes." - Nils Sandin from Bookmarklet

‘Alien’ at 35: Sigourney Weaver reflects on Ridley Scott’s masterpiece | Hero Complex – movies, comics, pop culture – Los Angeles Times
"Ridley Scott’s landmark “Alien” arrived in theaters 35 years ago this year, introducing moviegoers to an actress named Sigourney Weaver. As Ellen Ripley, Weaver delivered a mesmerizing performance that catapulted her into the Hollywood spotlight and broke significant ground for women in genre. Three decades later, Weaver notes that any message of empowerment the original film might have communicated was accidental and not an effort on Scott’s part to blaze a new trail." - Nils Sandin from Bookmarklet

Drone racing in the woods evokes more than a few Star Wars memories
"There's a global tournament coming in about a year, and the club would like to see events stream online so that you can get that first-person experience from afar. The group's Herve Pellarin even predicts that drones will get virtual lasers to "shoot down" opponents Wipeout-style. FAA regulations may prevent this remote-controlled racing from getting started in the US for a while, but it's good to know that the framework for it already exists." - Nils Sandin from Bookmarklet

How police hacked Mail on Sunday to identify source who exposed Chris Huhne | Daily Mail Online
"MPs last night warned that police use of RIPA to spy on journalists was a disproportionate use of power that would deter whistleblowers from approaching the media because of fears they could be unmasked by police. Keith Vaz, chairman of the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee, said: ‘It is deeply disturbing that the police have hacked into offices of a major UK newspaper. They have struck a serious blow against press freedom.’" - Nils Sandin from Bookmarklet

British journalists call for an end to “routine” surveillance | Courage Foundation
"A new scandal has demonstrated that journalists have a real interest in fighting surveillance – and that current UK practices put source protection right in the firing line. This month, London’s Metropolitan Police published a report that confirmed they had used surveillance powers to obtain the phone records of Sun journalist Tom Newton Dunn without his knowledge in order to find out who his source was." - Nils Sandin from Bookmarklet

Gah. I think I'm going to have to replace my Ultra soon. It just doesn't seem to hold a charge for more than a few hours. It's spending more and more time on the charger instead of on my body. :-/
But I guess 2 years is a good run, given the daily use. - vicster: hon. canadian
Bummer. :-/ - Jenny H. from Android
Zip is better in this respect -- just put a new watch battery in it every few months. - Bruce Lewis
2yrs is a pretty good run but bummer you have to spend the money to get a new one. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
That's strange. My Ultra is nearly 2.5 years old, and still holds a charge for more than a week, wearing it daily. - Nils Sandin
