Opbakningen til partier som Venstre, DF og det nye Socialdemokraterne, der er sociale med folkets fjender og skider på demokratiet i både ord og handling, viser meget tydeligt, at for hver gang jeg møder 4 mennesker, så er de 3 i en hel anden politisk verden end min. Vi taler ikke samme sprog, vores værdier er helt grundlæggende forskellige og måske uforenelige, og ift. hvad vi ønsker for den planet, vi har til låns, kan vi bedst beskrives som direkte fjender.

Garmin Vivofit

Ifølge Garmin vil Vivofit lære brugerens aktivitetsniveau at kende og automatisk opsætte opnåelige mål og i løbet af dagen minde om, at det er tid til at bevæge sig i stedet for sidde foran computeren. Vivofit vil være klar i løbet af foråret. Prisen er 130 dollar, cirka 710 kroner, mens armbåndet med en pulsmåler koster 170 dollar, omkring 930 kroner.

2013: The Year in Bad Cops
Most Racist Police Department: New York CityThe country’s biggest police force would be hard-pressed not to wind up with some very awkward incidents—when you have 34,000 officers, some of them are going to mess up. But a few bad apples can’t be blamed for the NYPD’s stop and frisk program or its CIA-style monitoring of Muslims. For all the cops’ spying on mosques, they produced no useful tips, and stop and frisk didn’t lead to many arrests either. Between January 2002 and June 2012, nearly 4.5 million New Yorkers were stopped on the street and searched for drugs or weapons, and nearly 90 percent weren’t doing anything illegal. The majority of these searches were performed on black or hispanic individuals, giving the whole thing a strong stink of prejudice. Though the policy’s supporters—including lame-duck Mayor Mike Bloomberg—claim this makes the city safer and that minorities aren’t singled out because of their skin color, civil liberties activists begged to differ and sued in 2010. In August, a federal judge ordered reforms and oversight to the officially racist policy, but two months later she was dismissed from the case for being biased against the city. Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio has pledged to reform the practice once he takes office in January, even if some cops oppose his efforts.
Most Kafkaesque Definition of “Assault”: New York City, AgainA Manhattan grand jury, faced with the case of officers who shot two bystanders during an effort to apprehend an unarmed mentally unstable man in October, have decided assault charges are warranted, which makes sense given that, well, two people were shot. Except they have declined to charge the officers who shot the women, instead blaming the unstable man who had been darting in between cars and causing a bit of a scene on the day in question. He forced the cops to pull out their weapons and fire, apparently, and also made them miss. (By the way, he was eventually brought down by a Taser.)
