The list below contains all the tricks and tips I had to research and integrate in my workflow to keep using Git joyfully in conjunction with SVN. Enjoy!

The US and British militaries insist that this is such an expert program, but it's curious that they feel the need to deliver faulty information, few or no statistics about civilian deaths and twisted technology reports on the capabilities of our UAVs. These specific incidents are not isolated, and the civilian casualty rate has not changed, despite what our defense representatives might like to tell us.

Amongst the thousands of languages spoken across the world, here are just eighty. How many can you distinguish between?

If you think that selfishness and cruelty are fantastic personal traits, you might be a libertarian. In the movement no one will ever call you an asshole, but rather, say you believe in radical individualism.

Men i övrigt är svensk politik fullständigt förvirrad. Alla traditionella riksdagspartier försvarar den generella välfärdsstaten – samtidigt som de försöker ge intryck av att vara öppna, toleranta och kosmopolitiska. Men det flyger inte. Man kan inte samtidigt vara för en sluten välfärdsstat och för fri rörlighet. Så det politiska Sverige säger en sak och gör en annan. I all praktisk handling – faktiskt – samma sak som (SD). Det vill säga att de offrar den fria rörligheten till förmån för välfärdsstaten.

We all know that inequality has been rising and the average American household has been suffering. There is a myth that says all this suffering is necessary, that extreme inequality is the by-product of a rapidly growing economy—or worse, that it’s a good thing because it motivates everyone to work hard and climb the long ladder to the One Percent. § Even a brief glance at the historical record reveals just how perverted this hypothesis is.

As reported by Cameron McCormack, Firefox Nightly (version 29) now supports CSS variables. You can get a quick overview in this short screencast:

As of November last year, the city saved more than €11.7 million (US$16.1 million) because of the switch. More recent figures were not immediately available, but cost savings were not the only goal of the operation. It was also done to be less dependent on manufacturers, product cycles and proprietary OSes, the council said Thursday.

The NSA doesn't just have the technical capabilities to collect location-based data in bulk. A 24-page NSA white paper shows that the agency has a powerful suite of algorithms, or data sorting tools, that allow it to learn a great deal about how people live their lives.

BayesDB, a Bayesian database table, lets users query the probable implications of their data as easily as a SQL database lets them query the data itself. Using the built-in Bayesian Query Language (BQL), users with no statistics training can solve basic data science problems, such as detecting predictive relationships between variables, inferring missing values, simulating probable observations, and identifying statistically similar database entries.
