TED and Reddit interview Hans Rosling Technology Today, several US-based internet communities — including 4chan (watch Christopher “moot” Poole’s TED Talk), Mozilla (watch Gary Kovacs’ talk), Fark (Drew Curtis has given a TED Talk too), and Reddit (Alexis Ohanian has given a talk and created a TED playlist) — are rallying against NSA surveillance of the internet, as revealed by a whistleblower in June.

(כתב: אורי מאיר-צ'יזיק) לפני כשנה פנה אלי יריב ספקטור היקר וביקש ממני להחליף אותו בועדת התקינה העוסקת בקמח. הוא סיפר לי שהוא יושב בועדה מטעם המועצה לצרכנות כי ביקשו ממנו1 , אבל הוא לא ממש מבין בקמח והוא מרגיש שאם ישב בועדה מישהו שכן מבין בקמח אז הוא יוכל באמת להגן על האינטרס הציבורי. לא ידעתי אז לאן אני נכנס – לא הבנתי בתקינה ובדיעבד מסתבר שגם לא הבנתי מספיק בקמח. אבל הבנתי שזה חשוב ויריב ביקש, אז אני קפצתי למים. מכון התקנים הוא גוף לא כל-כך מוכר לציבור הרחב, אך מדובר במוסד מרכזי וחשוב שמשפיע כמעט על כל דבר שקורה לנו – החומרים מהם בנוי ביתנו, הרכב הדלק של האוטו, מבנה הכסא עליו אנו יושבים ועוד ועוד… – כולם חייבים לעמוד בתקנים שנקבעים במכון.

Celebrating Celibacy There are many references in the Bible that very wisely tell us to refrain from sexual immorality and fornication (sex outside of marriage). Just a few of those warnings can be found in: Leviticus 20: 10-21Acts 15:20Colossians 3:5 Proverbs 5: 3-81 Corinthians 6: 9, 13, 151 Thessalonians 4: 3-8 Proverbs 7: 21-27Galatians 5:9Hebrews 13:4 Any sermon that teaches about sexual conduct might well focus on some of the above teachings and examples. However, there are other much neglected parts of the Bible that explain quite clearly that marriage is actually not the ultimate ideal for those who can control their sexual urges or indeed those who do not have sexual urges at all. In focussing on marriage as the ultimate Christian ideal to strive for, many have neglected some extremely important warnings, particularly those below, as spoken by Saint Paul:

Sex and the Spiritual Christian (1 Cor. 7:1-7 Introduction After the second or third message, a friend informed us that one of the men had walked out during the meeting in protest. Craig and I were shocked. What had we said that was so offensive? We were told that we were talking too much about sex. It is possible to understand Engineers - Where there's a will, there's a way. Understanding Engineers #1 Two engineering students were biking across a university campus when one said, "Where did you get such a great bike?" The second engineer replied, "Well, I was walking along yesterday, minding my own business, when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike, threw it to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want." The first engineer nodded approvingly and said, "Good choice, The clothes probably wouldn't have fit you anyway." Understanding Engineers #2

Lofted Forest Home: Organic Curves & Natural Materials Good things come to those who wait – particularly in a work of uniquely detailed and highly curved architecture. Nearly a decade in the making, this structure by Robert Harvey Oshatz is much like a tree house – lofted toward the top of the canopy around it – only bigger, grander, more complex and curved than most any tree house in the world. The perimeter of the structure is pushed out into the forest around it, curving in and out to create views as well as a sense of intimacy with the coniferous and deciduous tree cover.

Top 10 Common Faults In Human Thought Humans The human mind is a wonderful thing. Cognition, the act or process of thinking, enables us to process vast amounts of information quickly. For example, every time your eyes are open, you brain is constantly being bombarded with stimuli. You may be consciously thinking about one specific thing, but you brain is processing thousands of subconscious ideas. Unfortunately, our cognition is not perfect, and there are certain judgment errors that we are prone to making, known in the field of psychology as cognitive biases.
