Fire safety aside, it's amazing that it's structurally possible with modern wood treatment.

@9000: в описании этого дома было сказано, что как раз достигнута лучшая звукоизоляция, чем в бетоне, т.к. этому уделялось особое внимание. Жилец сказал, что, ну, не очень. Но, может, правы все, т.к. если сравнивать с финской панелью 70-х — 80-х, там слышно, как у соседа сверху пряжка ремня звякает, вилкой о тарелку, вот это всё. А так, я даже рассматривала возможность переезда в этот деревянный дом, но по итогу хорошо, что не, раз там дерево, видимо, сильно обработано.

Forget the dirty silicon solar cell production, get ready for barium and titanium production contaminants. «Using the ferroelectric insulator BaTiO3 we show how photogeneration and the collection of hot, non-equilibrium electrons through the bulk photovoltaic effect (BPVE) yields a greater-than-unity quantum efficiency. Despite absorbing less than a tenth of the solar spectrum, the power conversion efficiency of the BPVE device under 1 sun illumination exceeds the Shockley–Queisser limit for a material of this bandgap.» #link https://www.nature.com/articles/nphoton.2016.143 via https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=28115094

Я знаком с некоторым количеством эмигрантов из Гон-Конга - в конце 90-х - начале 00 эмигрировать было очень легко - BNO, специальные программы в Канаду и Австралию - практически, надо было только захотеть. Но многие не захотели, потому что объединение с Китаем открыло много экономических возможностей - росли бизнесы, зарплаты, новые красивые кондо, сносили старые гнилые кварталы и укладывали плитку .. (ой нет, это уже про другую страну .. ) в общем, менять это на низ социальной пирамиды в провинциальной UK никто не хотел. Ну а потом вдруг стало поздно

A renowned game console emulator developer driven to having committed suicide by targeted online trolling.
I hope this case is going to be loud enough. It's interesting to see how is this going to mesh with ideas of online anonymity and #privacy in general, both for the victim and for the alleged perpetrators. It's also hard to identify a particular guilty party because trolling is like stoning, nobody is sure who landed the deadly blow.

One should also note that enabling the display of content in Android notifications gets it to be written to the system log which is accessible to some of the applications (and is definitely accessible to the system (Google and vendor) applications). When the content is hidden, it still is a precisely measured metadata, and when the non-default keyboard is (not) used, then the input is becoming either a product for personalized learning or (in case some shady keyboard app for special symbols like chinese characters is in use) can be directly logged remotely without any kind of encryption. The actual E2E (up to its security promises) is almost impossible. See /mujawwad/2751813 /mujawwad/2743128 /mujawwad/2718344 RE: Apple: https://twitter.com/matthew_d_green/status/1391008847695958020

I actually think that there is a possibility for the open, user-inspectable Web to become an alive but legacy tech, and fully opaque "high-performance" and "high-fidelity" network-delivered apps taking over the key positions. It only takes a good technology to make such development, and conversion from HTML+CSS, easy — like Flash back in the day. It's a rare moment where I totally don't want any part in development of a new, cool, transformative fundamental technology.
