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."

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."

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.
