I like Japanese flip-up feature phones. They are more stylishly designed and have cuter chimes and ring signals than any Nokia or iPhone.
Viruses don't self-replicate, but they cause themselves to be replicated by cells they have infected.
University of Washington research on children who began life in these institutions shows that early childhood neglect is associated with changes in brain structure. A paper published this month in Biological Psychiatry shows that children who spent their early years in these institutions have thinner brain tissue in cortical areas that correspond to impulse control and attention. "These differences suggest a way that the early care environment has dramatic and lasting effects for children's functioning," said lead author Katie McLaughlin, a UW assistant professor of psychology.
Since 2000, the Bucharest Early Intervention Project has worked to document and treat the children's health. McLaughlin joined the team about six years ago to focus on brain development. This study is among the first in any setting to document how social deprivation in early life affects the thickness of the cortex, the thin folded layer of gray matter that forms the outer layer of the brain. The study provides "very strong support" for a link between the early environment and ADHD, McLaughlin said.
Sweden has a lower population density than USA: 22.85 people/kmÂ compared to 34.2 people/kmÂ (both figures from 2010).
Would you be more satisfied if we compared California with its population density of 95 people/kmÂ?
California has "Silicon Valley" where the world's biggest companies in information technology are located.
From all I have heard, the Internet last mile situation for a home in Silicon Valley is not much better than in any other major US urban area.
I'm so tired of Sweden being singled out as a "socialist" country. Sweden is not more "socialist" compared to its neighbours in northern Europe.
While the local "Labour" party ("Social Democrats") has ruled in most of the last hundred years (because of winning elections), the Labour party of today is not that much different from the Labour party in e.g. United Kingdom. We now have a Labour/Green coalition, since a few days.
The last government was a econoliberal/conservative coalition that rules for eight years, and we had conservative governments in the '90s and '70s as well.
The Moto 360 is cut off at the bottom so that they could put the ambient light sensor there. Without it, the screen could have been a full circle.
I have a collection of replica Star Wars lightsaber hilts and a couple of blasters, on which I have spent many hundreds of dollars.
Sure, some people may call them "toys" but for me and for (most) other collectors in the community they were never made to be played with. I don't play with them and I don't let anyone play with them. I call them "collectibles". Anyone who calls them "toys" after I have explained it to them is no friend of mine.
TechKeys has a programmable business card with a built-in Tetris clone in firmware.
It is programmable over USB if you want to use it for something else.
Because TechKeys makes keyboard accessories, its intended use is as a keyboard. Therefore, it is made to fit four Cherry MX mechanical key switches.
When Google forced the Google+/Google account integration on the users, it wasn't just Google's "Social Network" that was forced upon us. The first hazzle I noticed was that I could not be logged in into Youtube and Gmail at the same time using the two different accounts that I had.
When I was logged into Youtube and wanted to check my mail, instead of a login prompt, I was prompted with a page offering me to "upgrade" the account, and vice versa.
I don't want the confidential correspondence I have with my doctor to be at the same security box as my list of favourite cat videos on Youtube. Youtube is used casually, while GMail is used seriously.
I still use Youtube and GMail a lot, but for a while now I use GMail exclusively in Private Browsing windows in Chromium, so that my credentials are kept separate. But I think that shouldn't be necessary.
The same day, people were also marching at 2808 other official events in 166 countries. (http://peoplesclimate.org/)
So there is quite a lot more than ~400'000 people.
In our march in Stockholm, Sweden we endured pouring rain, hail and thunder
I heard from a cardiologist that they set 60 BPM as the norm. If your resting heart rate is 60 or lower, then you are considered fit enough. If your resting heart rate is higher then you would need to shape up.
