Bravia Ads

There's been a lot of talks around the bouncing balls version, and yet comes the new version with the ""exploding paint building"" which as it seems will live up to its predecessor. Check also the official website for more info.
Some good stuff...

TRICHEUR

The Phonak Cycling Team was notified yesterday by the UCI of an unusual level of Testosteron/Epitestosteron ratio in the test made on Floyd Landis after stage 17 of the Tour de France.
booohhhh... they wanted to have a clean Tour de France this year without Ulrich, and they end up with the winner being the cheater. I gave up watching cycling a few years ago when it became to obvious that it was a biotech competition and not sport anymore. I thought it changed. It did not.

Was 9/11 an inside job?

This article is made on the initiative of the Norwegian edition of Le Monde diplomatique only.

More and more people in the US are convinced that the American authorities are concealing their involvement in the 9/11 tragedy. Statements from witnesses, marked confidential for several years, now show that controlled demolition may have taken place. The US government had long anticipated such an incident – as the Republican document from 2000 Rebuilding America's defences indicates. The 9/11Truth organisation believes that the US probably orchestrated an incident of this type in order to justify the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the curtailing of civil liberties within the US through the introduction of the Patriot Act. It has now emerged that in 1962 the America's most senior military leader devised a plan for a premeditated attack on Americans, which would have involved shooting down a passenger plane, so that the blame could be cast on Cuba. So why should this be excluded today? Many also believe that Pakistani intelligence cooperated with the CIA and Al-Qaeda because it transferred significant sums of money to the hijacker Mohammed Atta in the days leading up to the 9/11. They even had Bin Laden under surveillance during the time of his treatment in a military hospital in Peshawar, Pakistan, in September 2001.

War in Lebanon

This is a link I received.
I didn't know if I was supposed to post it but then, a blog is a place to share information. This came from a Lebanese friend, I believe that we could find the same on the other side of the border.

The link contains "Sensitive Pictures" as they put it.

Lake Parade Genève

D'après la TDG:
"La brigade motorisée mise en place par la Voirie vaut, à elle seule, tous les chars de la Lake Parade. «La propreté, ça en jette», pour reprendre le slogan municipal, surtout lorsqu'il s'agit de nettoyer en temps réel 20 tonnes de déchets au sol. En queue de cortège, quatre balayeuses et deux camions de récupération entrent en action sitôt le début du cortège. Ils sont précédés par la jeep de Michel Conod, le responsable désigné de ce ballet nettoyeur qui bat chaque année de nouveaux records dans la restitution de la chaussée à la circulation. Ainsi, samedi soir à 20 h 10, le Pont du Mont-Blanc était rouvert aux voitures et le lendemain, à 10 h 30 déjà, les bus pouvaient reprendre leurs courses sur les quais. Il a fallu, pour ce dernier exploit, demander du renfort. Car l'efficacité, ici, ne passe pas que par les machines. Des femmes et des hommes à pied font disparaître à la main les chutes festives de ceux qui les précèdent. Des autorisations ont même été nécessaires pour pouvoir engager, durant le week-end, six souffleuses chargées de ramener au centre les déchets dispersés sur les côtés de la route et dans les pelouses. La musique de ces engins, surfant au lever du jour sur une mer de détritus, était grandiose."

LocoSound

Designed by Alain Bellet (interaction designer, University of Art and Design, Lausanne), LocoSound is a flux audio experience that is synchronized with the landscape viewed from a train window. A location system, based on GPS, matches in real-time the music with the landscape. In the train wagon, the audience can tune into a radio frequency to become part of an audio visual experience

PayPerPost is a terrible, terrible idea

and totally unethical. From Pete Cashmore:



PayPerPost is a great new way to lose your credibility as a blogger - the service will pay you to write reviews of new products and services. Advertisers post “opportunities” on the site - they can specify whether the post should have pictures, and even request a positive review. That last part really crosses the line, and it’s sure to destroy any credibility you have as a writer. PayPerPost will pay more if you have a high-trafficked blog, but anyone who has spent time building up an audience would be crazy to take part.

Black MacBooks cost more.. and their disk works slower

Now here's a remarkable thing that the Macworld team has turned up in its lab tests. The black Macbooks, when compared to the top-end white versions (the latter, you'll recall, are £90 cheaper but have no other noticeable configuration differences), are actually slower at a number of tasks than the mid-config white ones.

Opération «Jeannot»: plus de 120 kilos de viande saisis

Jeannot et Beaunéné, les douaniers genevois, n'ont vraiment pas peur du ridicule dans leur "louable" quête de préservation de l'économie Suisse. Nos impôts ont payé ces affables fonctionnaires à pincer vendredi sur les chemins de la campagne genevoise les fraudeurs de viandes aux profils de grands bandits (un conseiller financier, un économiste fribourgeois, un couple de Nyonnais, une dame qui achetait de la viande pour l'anniversaire de sa fille, un employé de l'Hôpital cantonal...). Pathétique.

Les pouces enfoncés dans le ceinturon, les gardes-frontière entament dès 11 h 30 l'opération «Jeannot». «Jeannot, c'est le surnom du chef de poste Jean Lüthi», sourit le sergent Olivier Jolissaint, dit Beaunéné pour les intimes. [...]

Le sergent Jolissaint le reconnaît: « Ça fait mal au cœur, mais il faut penser à préserver notre économie et c'est un proeuropéen qui le dit!» Devant lui, les voitures défilent au pas: les conductrices affichent leur plus beau sourire (qu'elles perdent vite une fois le barrage franchi). Les hommes, eux, prennent un air faussement détendu.
