Any German will know. It's use stems from a time when you were just as likely to find a scientific text in German - the 99.99% English dominance (in international scientific publications) happened after 1933...
> Considering the papers were eventually published anyway
That seems to be a clear cut case of biased sampling. What you heard about is all there is?
> I didn't know Chrome could change the playback speed of videos.
It is not limited to Chrome though. It is a feature of Youtube's HTML5 player. So it works on Firefox and other browsers too, only that Chrome supports all HTML5 video features that Youtube needs while Firefox does not (yet) - check with https://www.youtube.com/html5).
> The other way to do that is to use VLC
Sure, as always there are many ways. Chrome is the most convenient way to view Youtube though, that's all.
First, HTML5 videos. I watch a lot of lectures on Youtube, and HTML5 videos have a speed option that most lectures benefit from (30min instead of 1 hour lecture). Sure, Firefox plays HTML5 too - but not as many. Some options are not available.
Second, Flash on Firefox has been *horrible* at least for me lately (I have the latest version of everything, Windows 7 system). After the latest Flash update all I have to do to crash the Flash plugin is right-click over a Flash area. And it's been crashing a lot for me for a long time.
On the other hand, (from a user point of view, not web developer) I often run across bugs in Chrome while the same doesn't happen (to me) with Firefox. So if I could I'd stay with Firefox.
I think as a web developer, especially when you develop modern apps and not just intranet enterprise apps (that are very conservative in what functions they use) Chrome may be more tempting at this point. I'm guessing - I only develop those "boring" apps where the intelligence is in the business logic and on the server and I don't need to do as much in the browser.
Even though this course has "public health" in the title, it is really quite generic. The methods used and very(!) well explained by the very likable John McGready (Johns Hopkins University) are exactly the same as what is relevant to understand for what is being discussed here.
Statistical Reasoning for Public Health 1: Estimation, Inference, & Interpretation
A conceptual and interpretive public health approach to some of the most commonly used methods from basic statistics.
The course's contents is still accessible. "Episode 3" is about Ultrasound.
All videos from the course on Youtube (there is a lot more content on edX - text and images):
Look for "Brian has an Ultrasound" in that list (after loading all videos under that account) and go backwards (left and up) in the list for all videos on ultrasound.
The course/the videos are really interesting!
"The Search for Dark Matter - Professor Carolin Crawford
If you are interested in astronomy you should check out the other videos of her from Gresham College. After Neil deGrass Tyson she's the only other person that makes me - who is only mildly interested in the subject - want to watch such hour log lectures all the way to the end. In other words: She's darn good at this!
I live in Nuremberg, Germany. 2 of 3 subway lines are fully automatic. They run much more often than with drivers, and this is actually MIXED operation: the third line, that is still driver operated, shares the tracks on the middle section through the city. Nuremberg was the first city to have such a mixed-mode subway.
They are on time for the most part, stop within a few cm of where they are supposed to each time, and are just a normal part of life. I've read about an occasional hiccup but never experienced one myself, and I don't think it's more than it would be in the "old system". The biggest stops were due to worker strikes, not technology issues. They didn't lay off anyone, by the way.
Anyway, it is just unexciting business as usual for me any more, nothing special.

Lots of generalities and assertions, no depth at all. Was this really worth being posted? They may or may not be right - but all you can have after reading it is an "opinion". No actual knowledge in that article, or even any insights. It is mere boulevard paper level journalism.
Also, what is missing is the speed with which the options increase. I just finished edX course MIT "Introduction to Biology" (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! WARNING: CONTAINS ACTUAL KNOWLEDGE! https://www.edx.org/course/mit...) and so much happened just the last 10 years! So an assessment of the danger of these developments that only looks at the current state (and what a bad job they do with this) is kind of useless.
There are no predators - ZERO predators, in German forests. A handful of wolves in Brandenburg, and an occasional bear in Bavaria (making headlines each time it happens). So humans MUST decimate those who proliferate too much, because nature doesn't. For you ideology trumps reason?
I'm confused by the text you quoted as coming from a parent comment. I cannot find that text in the parent comment, and AFAICS comments are not editable once posted, so that means it was never there. Where did you find this:
> Which means this is nothing but a hunter subsidy. Like whaling for Japan where their excuse is "whales eat all the fish".
And about the subsidy, juts for the record, since the text is there and I cannot find the quoted comment to reply to:
The articles says the compensation is just enough for disposal of the dead animals, it isn't even a compensation for missed earnings had they sold the meat. And I can tell you selling that meat would not a problem, people like buying wild animal meat. So the statement makes no sense at all, except to show that ideology often blinds ones reasoning abilities.
I don't understand what you mean. I'm not talking about sharing of videos recorded by the league - I'm talking about privately recorded videos of the games. Here in Germany we had the case of people recording local games (insignificant, lowest level) and those videos where attempted to be taken down.
I obviously understand (somewhat) if they don't want you to share THEIR videos, but they don't want you to share ANY videos of the event, even if YOU recorded it.
I don't have a link for the event I describe above, but it would be in German anyway.
Here's an August 2014 link - I didn't notice that my first link was from 2006.
At least in soccer - and I don't watch any sports or read any sports news so there may very well be others - there ARE such notices. I heard of at least the Englisch Premier League as well as the German Bundesliga trying to enforce "copyright" against Youtube.
When flying in civilian airspace they have to have their mode C (altitude reporting) capable transponder turned on, so of course they'll show up on radar. You can't have hardly radar-visible aircraft flying around busy civilian airplanes.
