Going Nuclear

Very interesting point from the founder of Greenpeace.

In the early 1970s when I helped found Greenpeace, I believed that nuclear energy was synonymous with nuclear holocaust, as did most of my compatriots. That's the conviction that inspired Greenpeace's first voyage up the spectacular rocky northwest coast to protest the testing of U.S. hydrogen bombs in Alaska's Aleutian Islands. Thirty years on, my views have changed, and the rest of the environmental movement needs to update its views, too, because nuclear energy may just be the energy source that can save our planet from another possible disaster: catastrophic climate change.

Child pornographers will soon have a harder time escaping prosecution thanks to a stunning new technology [...] that can reliably link digital images to the camera with which they were taken, in much the same way that tell-tale scratches are used by forensic examiners to link bullets to the gun that fired them.

Differences in reading choices between men and women

most men don't read fiction at all in their middle years -- despite being the official arbiters of quality via fiction prizes such as the Booker -- [...] there ought to be a revolution in publishing akin to the minivan revolution that happened when Detroit realized that women were the actual buyers of the family car.


Weird fact. Men don't read fiction at all in their middle years but do before and after that. Link

Tribewanted

tribewanted is creating a global tribe that will develop a sustainable eco-community on an island in Fiji.

In what seems like a hippie dream crossed with an episode of Survivor, tribewanted is looking for 5000 people from around the world to become part of a tribe that will not only exist online, but will also settle, 100 at a time, on 'Adventure Island'. On the map, Adventure Island is known as Vorovoro, and is being leased to tribewanted by the local tribal chief.

There are three types of membership to choose from: Nomads get 1 years membership and 7 nights on the island for GBP 120 / USD 210; Hunters are members for 2 years and can stay for 14 nights (GBP 240 / USD 420); and Warriors are member for 3 years and can stay for 21 nights (GBP 360 / USD 630). When the 5000th member joins, the tribe will be formed and will start to make tribal decisions by voting through the online community at tribewanted.com, on issues such as the name of the tribe, type of infrastructure that will be required, and how to build an island community in an environmentally friendly way.

Gmail aliases

Gmail, unsurprisingly smart:


Gmail doesn't recognize dots (.) as characters within a username. This way, you can add and remove dots to your username for desired address variations. messages sent to your.username@gmail.com and y.o.u.r.u.s.e.r.n.a.m.e@gmail.com are delivered to the same inbox, since the characters in the username are the same.


I didn't know, it's pretty cool. More info here.

Apple - Boot Camp

EFI and BIOS
Macs use an ultra-modern industry standard technology called EFI to handle booting. Sadly, Windows XP, and even the upcoming Vista, are stuck in the 1980s with old-fashioned BIOS. But with Boot Camp, the Mac can operate smoothly in both centuries.

Leeds airline whippet into frenzy over French strike

A budget airline boss has dubbed French air traffic controllers "lazy frogs" for taking industrial action against their government's plan to make it easier to sack young staff. [...]

Meeson also fumed at students who staged a blockade of one of his planes in the alpine resort of Chambery. The firm reports one passenger's diplomatic version of events at the two hour stand-off: 'We kept on shouting to them 'roast beefs want to go home' and after two hours they packed their satchels and headed off into the alpine sunset!'"

Ces jeunes qui pensent vieux

Des centaines de milliers de postes sont vacants dans la métallurgie, la maçonnerie, la menuiserie, la serrurerie. Pour ces jeunes, le CPE devrait permettre d'accéder à ces métiers, en laissant à l'entrepreneur la liberté de licencier durant deux ans. Pas de quoi s'étrangler.

Les lycéens et étudiants veulent-ils bloquer l'accès au travail à moins lotis qu'eux ? C'est ce qu'ils laissent comprendre, en se faisant manoeuvrer par d'archaïques syndicats soucieux de leurs intérêts égoïstes. La fonction publique, mobilisée mardi, n'est en rien concernée par ce contrat. Mais elle y voit l'inacceptable atteinte à l'État providence, construit sur un Code du travail interdisant la nécessaire flexibilité.

Le CPE, approuvé par les parlementaires, a un mérite : celui de rompre avec un système qui ne fonctionne plus et qui écarte 23% des 15-29 ans d'un marché du travail bloqué par trop de contraintes. [...] Cependant, il n'est plus possible de défendre un système qui exclut les moins formés et fait fuir les plus entreprenants.

Des décennies d'éloges du pantouflage ont laissé des traces. L'année dernière, un sondage révélait que 76% des 15-30 ans jugeaient attractifs de devenir fonctionnaires. Cette semaine, une enquête Ipsos montre que 82% des Français encourageraient leurs enfants à entrer dans la fonction publique. C'est ce pays immobile et soucieux de sa retraite qui renoue avec son rituel gauchisant. Mais ce sont des conservatismes qui s'expriment. Ils aggravent la marginalisation des jeunes, en leur transmettant des préoccupations de vieux.

Pr0n's Effect On Society

An article at the Financial Times is analysing the growing impact of internet pornography, the phenomena itself and the problems that it causes to our society. Surveys within Great Britain have shown that more than a half of 9-19 years olds have seen pornography online. From the article: 'To some men, Haynes argues, clicking on porn is simply a way to pass the time. It's a hobby. Once they'd idly play solitaire; now they idly click on a porn site. Others, though, succumb to addiction: Most addictions are to do with internal emptiness, wanting to fill up dead space, and addiction is always destructive.
