Ten historic female scientists you should know (and no, Marie Curie is not mentioned, simply bc this is about female scientists *not* everybody knows about :)).

Trennung von Staat und Kirche? Um Gottes Willen! (SPON)
"Glauben ist Privatsache, Staat und Kirche sollten konsequent getrennt werden: Für dieses politische Ziel macht sich der Jungsozialist Oliver Lösch in der SPD stark - und stößt auf erbitterten Widerstand. Unterstützung für seine Sache kommt überraschend vom politischen Gegner."

Awww, cute! :D A guy gave away 30 presents on his birthday to celebrate.

How Not to Talk to Your Kids
"When parents praise their children’s intelligence, they believe they are providing the solution to this problem. According to a survey conducted by Columbia University, 85 percent of American parents think it’s important to tell their kids that they’re smart. (...) The constant praise is meant to be an angel on the shoulder, ensuring that children do not sell their talents short. But a growing body of research—and a new study from the trenches of the New York public-school system—strongly suggests it might be the other way around. Giving kids the label of “smart” does not prevent them from underperforming. It might actually be causing it."

Very good read. I can relate very much, so if you want to "get to know me", read it ;)


Webcomic I found thanks to [livejournal.com profile] vout. Very nice, really recommend it :)

There is going to be a Dragon Age Movie? With Felicia Day? Oooh ... never played the game, but must watch anyway, I guess :D


Not so much my kind of music*, but it's a really nice trailer mashup (without any story and like ... 200 movies used or so?). Beware, 15 minutes long! But, well, cool. Even if it is very quick and visually exhausting, too :D Many flashy images, don't watch if prone to seizures ^^. I see it as a nice way to show a collection of amazing movie moments ... as in, what is possible and done in movies today. And there is Nuada in it, lol.

*screw that, after watching that thing for the third or forth time now, I actually enjoy the music quite a lot.

Girls with slingshots ist super!
Und Das Video ist absolut klasse! Habe es mir gleich auf meine Liste gesetzt :)

Die politische Diskussion über Staat und Kirche ist von meinen rechtlichen Standpunkt aus ziemlich ausgelutscht. Nicht dass es nicht einen großen Diskussions- und Auslegungsrahmen bei uns diesbezüglich noch gibt, doch da wird meiner Meinung nach das Pferd wieder von hinten aufgezäumt.

Die Vorschau des Gender Books wirkt sehr interessant.
Seit ich diese große französische Reportage über pränatale Diagnostik und Geschlechterentwicklung gesehen habe habe muss ich immer lachen wenn mir jemand versucht zu erklären es gäbe nur zwei Geschlechter.

I MUST HAVE IT!!!
:-D

But I think "This is the latest in home lifestyle goods from Japan in Sega’s famous “toy’s for adults” series" might confuse some people.

IP over Avian Carriers


There is an improved RFC for "IP over Avian Carriers with Quality of Service":
http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2549
:-D

And for short (sighting) distance you can use "The Transmission of IP Datagrams over the Semaphore Flag Signaling System (SFSS)"

Trennung von Staat und Kirche? Um Gottes Willen! (SPON)


Sollte eigentlich selbstverständlich sein, aber die christlichen Taliban haben bei uns leider noch zu viel Macht.
Die nötige Mehrheit für entsprechende Gesetzesänderungen wird man nie herstellen können.

So wird auch weiterhin die älteste Verbrecherorganisation, die nebenbei auch der größte Immobilienbesitzer der Welt ist, weiter in Deutschland keine Grundsteuer zahlen und von Privilegien profitieren die ihnen damals die Nazis zugesagt haben...

There are some "Infinity"-miniatures with a normal uniform.

Hehe, IP over Avian is so cool. The guys here have thought about trying it, but it's not that easy to find suitable pigeons today ;)

And I'm always happy to see the woman fighter in reasonable armour being mentioned - I mean, come on, steel bras?! Think, folks!

The genderbook is awesome, thank for pointing me towards it. I hope for something like this (or perhaps an extension of this) in German, because there are even more or at least different issues with the language here.

How not to talk to your kids was interesting! Well written and oh so important!
Actually, I see this kind of behaviour even in myself *sighs* Not good. But maybe knowing where it comes from will help a bit.
Though the article name (the one on the website itself) is misleading and almost made me not read it.

Besonders das Gender Book, der Comic und der Armour tumblr habens mir angetan. Danke fürs Teilen.
