Remember That "Eurabian Civil War"? If someone mentioned terrorism in Europe, you would probably have an idea about the size of the threat and who's responsible. It's big, you would think. And growing. As for who's responsible, that's obvious. Gaming Election Day, November 25th. For all the razzmatazz going on about the election, it is safe to say that little is likely to change when it comes to actual electoral campaigning. The truth is, the only political power with complete mastery of the demographics, gender and income distribution is, and remains, the MI (Ministry of the Interior) first because it is near impossible to get hold of precise data, and second, and unless it can be proven indeed, there is little incentive on behalf of MI officials to release it on public outlets (if not outright withholding intent) and how could a modern political party conduct a modern electoral campaign if even the basic data is lacking, or needs to be extracted from its reluctant source? Knowledge is power they say, and that holds particularly true for Morocco.

China Soft-Power Watch: the Yang Rui 'Foreign Bitch' Factor - James Fallows - International [Update: please see this very useful explanatory piece by Brendan O'Kane in China, and a followup by me.] This story is all over the China-hand blogosphere, and is so strange that at first I was sure it was a joke.

Norway suspect Anders Behring Breivik 'admits attacks' 24 July 2011Last updated at 08:37 Live coverage from Oslo's cathedral of the memorial service for the victims of the terror attacks in Norway on Friday The man accused of a massacre at a youth camp in Norway and a bombing in the capital, Oslo, has admitted responsibility, his lawyer says. Anders Behring Breivik, 32, described his actions as "gruesome but necessary", and said he would explain himself at a court hearing on Monday.

PsiXpda Android MID could use Psion Series 5mx keyboard design An innovative hinge design more than 14 years old could give Android MID enthusiasts a QWERTY keyboard worth typing on, if niche computing firm PsiXpda has its way. The company - which tested the UMPC waters in late 2009 with a Windows XP based unit, reviewed by SlashGear - intends to channel the design of the much-loved Psion Series 5mx in a new, Android-based model. PsiXpda founder Paul Pinnock told Reghardware that while the original Atom-based UMPC was "not fast enough and not good enough" and failed to live up to the Psion comparisons made in promotions at the time, the new model will be altogether more interesting. The design will be based on the Psion Series 5mx, which used a clever folding-sliding hinge so as to fit a large QWERTY 'board (with surprisingly decent key-travel) and a 5.6-inch touchscreen into a pocket-sized palmtop.
