Motorola Moto Z2 Play im Test: Ein neues modulares Akku-Wunder? - NETZWELT
Das Motorola Moto Z Play war dank modularer Schnittstelle so wandelbar wie ein Schweizer Taschenmesser und noch dazu ein echtes Akku-Wunder. Beim Nachfolger Moto Z2 Play merzt Motorola nun die wesentlich Schwächen des Modells aus. Der Test zeigt jedoch, besser ist das Moto Z2 Play dadurch nicht unbedingt.

Mammals cannot evolve fast enough to escape current extinction crisis -- ScienceDaily
The sixth mass extinction is underway, this time caused by humans. A team of researchers have calculated that species are dying out so quickly that nature's built-in defense mechanism, evolution, cannot keep up. If current conservation efforts are not improved, so many mammal species will become extinct during the next five decades that nature will need 3-5 million years to recover to current biodiversity levels. And that's a best-case scenario.

On Port 80 – Meredith L. Patterson – Medium
There’s been a joke for a few years now that all the web applications you’ve ever heard of are actually some other Internet protocol, reconfigured to answer on port 80, the standard port for (unencrypted) web traffic. Some of these parallels are obvious, and even more or less literal: Gmail is IMAP and SMTP, and Google Talk is (or was) XMPP, all on port 80 in the same browser window. Others are more metaphorical.

what is the difference between friendica and hubzilla? · Issue #2894 · friendica/friendica · GitHub
Friendica and Hubzilla are two different but similar software both spearheaded by the same man, Mike MacGirvin ( @redmatrix, @zotlabs or @friendica on GitHub ). And while he officially left the development of Friendica to start Red/RedMatrix/Hubzilla in 2012 based on a new decentralized social network protocol (named zot), both networks are able to interface with each others, on top of a shared Diaspora* and GNU Social (OStatus) compatibility. -==- From my point of view after installing both on my server, Hubzilla is more advanced and experimental than Friendica is, and in turn Friendica is slightly more intuitive and stable than Hubzilla is.

Warnruf zu mehr Klimaschutz: In einem neuen Bericht warnt der Weltklimarat IPCC vor den Folgen einer globalen Erwärmung selbst um zwei Grad. Schon ein halbes Grad mehr gegenüber dem 1,5-Grad-Ziel könnte Wetterextreme, Wasserknappheit und den Verlust von Ökosystemen deutlich verstärken. Um dies noch zu verhindern, seien nun beispiellose Maßnahmen nötig, so die Klimaforscher. Bis 2030 müssten dafür die Treibhausgas-Emissionen um 45 Prozent sinken – eine vermutlich kaum noch erreichbare Leistung.

Digital IDs Are More Dangerous Than You Think | WIRED
THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT, real-world benefits to having an accepted and recognized identity. That’s why the concept of a digital identity is being pursued around the world, from Australia to India. From airports to health records systems, technologists and policy makers with good intentions are digitizing our identities, making modern life more efficient and streamlined. -==-
Governments seek to digitize their citizens in an effort to universalize government services, while the banking, travel, and insurance industries aim to create more seamless processes for their products and services. But this isn’t just about efficiency and market share. In places like Syria and Jordan, refugees are often displaced without an identity. Giving them proof of who they are can improve their settlement, financial security, and job prospects in foreign lands.

Die Experten sprechen dabei von Kreuzreaktivität. Denn die beiden Viren können auch Menschen infizieren. Zwar bemerken die wenigsten überhaupt etwas von einer Ansteckung oder kommen mit Grippesymptomen davon. Bei Patienten mit schwachem Immunsystem können die Erreger aber schwer wiegende Komplikationen hervorrufen – bis zu Gehirnentzündungen.

Klartext: Das Ende der Dieseldiskussion | heise Autos
Der Grabenkampf ist so schädlich, weil die Politik eine rein soziale Plattform ist, was den Technokraten immer so wurmt. Hier herrscht nicht die nach allen Angriffen beste Idee wie in der Wissenschaft, sondern Menschen mit schönem Gesicht dürfen bevorzugt teilnehmen (siehe: Wahlverhalten) und Ideen durchsetzen, die sich am schnellsten weiterschrei(b)en lassen (siehe: Medien). Jeder Flüchtling ist ein Engel/Teufel. Atomkraft ist nötig/unnötig. Der Dieselmotor ist gut/böse. Jeder dieser Schrägstriche steht für eine Linie, die in der wirklichen Diskussion kaum dicker zeichnet als die wenigen Pixel, die er auf Ihrem Schirm einnimmt. Zufälle sorgen dafür, welche Seite in der Politik zu einem blinden Aktionismus führt. Dass die Politik einmal sehend in die Zukunft leiten würde, hofften wahrscheinlich die alten Griechen vor der Einführung, um diese Hoffnung zur Einführung spektakulär für immer sterben zu sehen.

Hothouse Earth Is Merely the Beginning of the End – Rolling Stone
In Lovelock’s view, the scale of the catastrophe that awaits us will soon become obvious. By 2020, droughts and other extreme weather will be commonplace. By 2040, the Sahara will be moving into Europe, and Berlin will be as hot as Baghdad. Atlanta will end up a kudzu jungle. Phoenix will become uninhabitable, as will parts of Beijing (desert), Miami (rising seas) and London (floods). Food shortages will drive millions of people north, raising political tensions. With hardship and mass migrations will come epidemics, which are likely to kill millions. By 2100, Lovelock believes, the Earth’s population will be culled from today’s 6.6 billion to as few as 500 million, with most of the survivors living in the far latitudes – Canada, Iceland, Scandinavia, the Arctic Basin.
