It looks like Vox has heavily edited their original story by creating a new lede, referencing research by the FCC and Pew Research, and correcting factual errors like their conflation of the invention of the internet with the invention of the web. They've also swapped out their original "Technology Adoption" graph with a new one and added an additional graph with data from the FCC. None of these edits are noted in the piece. But they appear to be sticking with their original argument anyway, so the critique below still stands

De Konservatives gruppeformand, Brian Mikkelsen, beklager til gengæld, at han brugte udtrykket »græshopper« om østeuropæerne, men holder fast i sit overordnede budskab.

I was pleased by the way he testified to the crime instead of keeping it in hiding, because it hurts if someone keeps hiding a crime he committed against you.

But the “big data” that interests many companies is what we might call “found data”, the digital exhaust of web searches, credit card payments and mobiles pinging the nearest phone mast. Google Flu Trends was built on found data and it’s this sort of data that interests me here. Such data sets can be even bigger than the LHC data – Facebook’s is – but just as noteworthy is the fact that they are cheap to collect relative to their size, they are a messy collage of datapoints collected for disparate purposes and they can be updated in real time.

In this hyper-connected world full of rockstar developers and super-smart designers, I’m humbled on a minute-by-minute basis. I might need to start attaching positive affirmation stickers on my laptop.

Don’t do it just because you can. Sometimes I – and I bet a lot of other people – just want to read.

Because my heart is in Vancouver, its greens and greys and unfussily
variegated people, and in Canada. Plus I find the Bay Area congested, racist,
incestuous, and overpriced.

In an interview two years before his death, Fiedler recalled that Gade came especially to Boston to thank him for the recording. Gade also presented Fiedler with a score of a symphony which Fiedler recalled as "one of the worst pieces of music I ever looked at."

Regarding the optimal send time, we discovered that that's a myth. Humans are complex and their schedules are complex, so the best time to engage them depends on the sender and their content as well as on the reader.

I cannot accurately convey to you the efficiency of heroin in neutralising pain. It transforms a tight, white fist into a gentle, brown wave. From my first inhalation 15 years ago, it fumigated my private hell and lay me down in its hazy pastures and a bathroom floor in Hackney embraced me like a womb.

But the SqaT runs up to the eponymous “Rainer Buchty Ratio.” When you make something that people are going to use, you need to compute some variant of the following equation:
RBR = 1 - (p_c * p_k * p_h)
Where p_c is the probability that someone would think your thing is cool, p_k is the probability that someone has the know-how to set up and operate the thing, and p_h is the probability that someone has the hardware / tools necessary to use your thing. The RBR is the RBR because the SqaT has the highest RBR ever, We need a normalising metric as most Things squash up on the top, so we set the RBR of SqaT to 1. Not a true probability, and I don’t think a true RBR of 0 exists. SqaT’s p_c is not bad, at least for his target market, and let’s face it, it remains one of the coolest things on the internet. But the p_k and p_h are dreadful.

Whatever the reason, I raised my hand, and when the pastor dismissed us, two of the adults physically prevented me from leaving with the other kids. They prayed over me and, despite my increasingly freaked-out demands to be allowed to leave, refused to release me until I said, “I accept Jesus Christ as my lord and savior,” which I finally did, racing from the trailer to join my sister without even accepting the proffered candy and Jack Chick tracts.

The place where I was staying had a wood-burning stove but no furnace, and it became the first of two Detroit winters I lived without any real heat. Which isn’t unusual. People told me their stories about frozen toilets, burst pipes, and small fires started by space heaters. Dozens and dozens of people without heat: ministers, artists, the elderly. It’s one of the first things to go, and January averages in the teens.

The Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Plant, as it’s officially known, sits just down the street from the massive abandoned Packard Automotive Plant, a 40-acre trash heap designed by Albert Kahn and the largest abandoned factory in the world. It’s often on fire, and people mention it like it’s the weather. Trees grow from the roof, and tourists come from all over the world to take photographs. Aside from the 18-story abandoned train station, it’s the best ruin porn in the city.

If you like Laphroaig, then Islay malts might be up your alley. If you just want to get hit in the head with a brick of dried peat, then try younger peated malts, and don't forget off-island ones like Ledaig or weird ones like Lost Spirits' Leviathan or Balcones Brimstone. Perhaps this analysis can indicate the limitations of the "plug and chug" method before someone tries to do this with, say Abstract Expressionist art....

Garbage in, garbage out. First off, Laphroaig is not *just* peaty; it's also got strong notes of iodine, seaweed and such. And that's just the house style. The difference between, say, Laph 10 OB, Laph new make, and a sherry finished independent bottling of Laphroaig at 25 years is wildly different even within that house style. At least you figured out that Islay malts might be a bit smoky, so yay that I guess.

All around me in the stadium, South Africans were dancing, singing and laughing to honour their departed leader. It was more like a carnival atmosphere, not at all morbid. The ceremony had already gone on for two hours and would last another two. The atmosphere was totally relaxed – I didn’t see anything shocking in my viewfinder, president of the US or not. We are in Africa.

A different type of privileged, rich person than yourself of course. After all a lot of them became rich through the corporations you mention who are “destroying the planet” unlike you who nobly amassed your wealth by hosting the MTV awards, shilling Hewlett Packard computers and appearing in films like the remake of Arthur.
