If the US would not block UN resolutions about Israel and UN peacekeepers could go into the ground that would do a lot more than what has been done so far. Truth is you guys don't care one bit, and the US government would rather support Israel in whatever crazy endeavour instead of siding with some dirt poor Arab people.

I would say the Russians were victimized a lot more than the Jews, and maybe even in a more cruel way like in the case of the starving of Leningrad. Israel is being fascist at the moment and I agree, it is awful to consider that Jewish people in Israel are today doing the same thing to others that they suffered in the not so distant past. Perhaps it is time to think about this whole hatred and land grabbing mentality again. Those Palestinian rockets are being launched for a reason.

The main difference is that there while in Syria we are talking about a guy who just wants to stay in power, in the case of Israel, it is just a case of them pushing people away to take their lands. But hey, if you support the genocide that is taking place in Palestine by using the genocide in Syria as an excuse, there is no point in a discussion.

PHP >5.3 is a good foundation and it mostly depends on what you want to do. PHP lends itself to develop something quick that works, like the web prototype language. You can even create a nice n-tier architecture with it, but as far as performance is concerned unless you are using some sort of cache, you are better off with a Java or .NET based solution.

Good luck finding a cargo ship that can go at those speeds. Having high speed rail connections is one of those things that you don't realize how useful it is until you have it. I can go from Shanghai to Hong Kong easily because of it, and of course it is the norm in Europe. In the US it is hard to picture the benefit since Acela trains' top speed is restricted because of the old rails, so taking your car and driving still beats everything over there.

I work with PHP and I would not say it is for beginners. That you can do something quick in PHP is one thing, but doing a proper MVC app in PHP requires pretty much the same skillset as a Java or .NET guy. In either case, all of those feel like children toys after you use either Node.js, C++/Boost or D with Vibe.

But having said that, I would not feel religious about any of the tech out there. In the end rarely you get to decide what is being used, since a lot of projects have to end up using whatever tool they started being coded with.

The reason why that freemium crap is so entrenched is because most developers forgot the concept of the demo. It is very hard to spend money on something you don't know you might like, hence why freemium is more popular. Just make higher quality games, charge more if you want and provide a demo. Personally I'm sick and tired of all the flood of crappy games for mobile, especially after you can see stuff like Civilization Revolutions, that proves that the platform can be used for much more than a pea shooter.

With chavez we were doing pretty good, but after he died things took a U-turn in a matter of months. To make a long story short, the incompetent bureacracy that Chavez helped grow but ruled with an iron fist was free of the leash, so the economy in particular became the part most affected by inexperienced politicians.
