Dn.se: Här fastnar EU:s miljarder till romerna
EU har satsat miljarder på att hjälpa Rumäniens fattiga. Samtidigt fortsätter landets romer att lämna sina hem och barn för att hitta sätt att överleva i väst. DN:s prisbelönta reporter Josefine Hökerberg har sökt svaret på varför EU-miljarderna inte når fram till dem som tigger och plockar burkar på Sveriges gator.

Elias Veganrecept
Att bönor förekommer så ofta i recepten beror på att jag knappade in de flesta när jag nyss hade börjat laga vegetarisk mat och trodde att man skulle få proteinbrist om man inte åt bönor varje dag. Nej, nybörjare, man behöver inte det, inte ens som vegan. Man bör äta någon baljväxt varje dag, men inte nödvändigtvis bönor, det finns ju linser och ärter och sojaprodukter också. För övrigt finns det fullvärdigt protein i potatis också, om än inte så mycket. Lakto(ovo)vegetarianer behöver inte alls bekymra sig om proteinet. Däremot kanske de går miste om de vitaminer och mineraler (järn bl a) och fibrer som finns i baljväxter!

Pirate Bay Shutdown Has Had Virtually No Effect on Digital Piracy Levels
The Pirate Bay was deep-sixed this week in its home port of Stockholm, Sweden, after cops raided a data center hosting the world’s most famous piracy organization. But its absence appears to have put hardly a dent in global piracy activity over the last four days.

On Monday, Dec. 8, a total of 101.5 million Internet addresses worldwide were engaged in torrent downloads of relevant titles tracked by anti-piracy firm Excipio (including movies, TV shows, music, videogames, software and other digital media). On Dec. 9, Swedish law-enforcement authorities — acting on a complaint from an anti-piracy group based in the country — descended on a Web-hosting facility used by Pirate Bay and confiscated its servers and other equipment.

The result: The total number of IP addresses engaged in peer-to-peer downloads of content tracked by Excipio dropped slightly from 99.0 million on Dec. 9 to 95.0 million and 95.6 million the following two days, before bouncing back to 100.2 million on Friday, Dec. 12. That’s roughly in line with the daily average of 99.9 million since Nov. 1, according to Excipio.

Here.com: Made in the USA: How people in Fargo make HERE maps
If you’ve used HERE maps, whether on a phone or through an in-car navigation system, you might take for granted the precise location of every stop sign, lane marker and street sign. But HERE maps are a result of far more than meets the eye, and one of our map-making facilities recently opened its doors for a behind-the-scenes look at the meticulous process of converting raw data into the digital maps we see on our screens.

Wikipedia.org: Olde English 800
According to The New York Times, the "40-ounce bottle, introduced in the late 1980s with aggressive marketing campaigns aimed at minority drinkers" was by 1993 "fast becoming the intoxicant of choice for black and Hispanic youths in New York and other American cities"; popular culture evidence cited by the paper included the chart popularity of the song "Tap the Bottle" — a song released in November 1992 and "celebrating the consumption of 40-ounce malt liquor" and the experience of Darryl McDaniels of Run-DMC, who had "recently told a rap magazine that he had been hospitalized for alcoholic pancreatitis, the result of years of drinking as many as eight 40-ounce bottles of malt liquor a day."

Why 96fps On The GH4 Should Be Avoided & Which Frame Rates Work Best For Slow Motion
One of the biggest reasons that filmmakers are falling in love with the GH4 is because of it’s amazing ability to shoot at high frame rates internally. No other DSLR/DSLM has the ability to over crank the way the GH4 can, which offers variable frame rates at up to 96 frames per second. This is pretty astounding, and certainly makes the GH4 an incredibly powerful to own – but unfortunately not all frame rates are going to work as well as others.

Youtube.com: DS-13 last gig in Sweden, trashing the stage
The very last show that DS-13 played in Sweden/Europe. At Hamnmagasinet in Umeå Hardcore, of course. Can't remember exact date but it was towards the end of 2002. After this the band played 7 gigs in Japan + 1 last show in Minneapolis, USA. This is the encore of the farewell Umeå show: 2 x DS-13 songs + a very chaotic rendition of "Steppin stone". Please note Inge from (International) Noise Conspircy, dressed in sailor suit and screaming into the mic. Then the drums are trashed. Members of DS-13 went on to bands like Lost Patrol, Vicious, Bruce Banner, Imperial Leather, Insurgent Kid, UX Vileheads, Sonic Ritual.

Sverigesradio.se: Trakasserier och våld mot tiggare
Många av de romer och andra EU-medborgare som kommer till Sverige utsätts för brott. Nyligen fick Rikskriminalpolisen i uppdrag att kartlägga både vilka brott EU-medborgarna själva begår här och vilka brott de blir utsatta för. Just nu utreds flera misstänkta mordbränder mot romska tältläger och på internet finns hatforum med grova hot mot de rumänska tiggarna. Men sen finns också vardagstrakasserierna, de som polisen sällan får veta något om.

Release Candidate for darktable 1.6
We don’t support xtrans DNGs. Supporting them is not a priority.

Converting any random RAW to DNG, isn’t per-se a smart thing to do. RAW formats and their metadata (EXIF MakerNotes) are fragile. Converting them to another format at times is not a truely lossless process, due to bugs in the conversion process.

It’s just an added risk, with little benefit in return.

We generally recommend to stick with the vendors RAW formats, unless (like Pentax), you can choose to have the camera natively produce DNG files, in which case those are generally preferred.

How to install and use Homebrew
brew doctor
You want to use this command after system changes (such as OS X or Xcode updates) or if you think you need to troubleshoot your Homebrew installation. The output will tell you what’s wrong and generally how to fix it.

brew update
This will update your Homebrew formula list. Note, this doesn’t update all your installed packages! What this does is update the versions and availability of packages you could install. You want to run this often to keep your Homebrew installation up to date with the latest available software.

brew upgrade
This will upgrade your installed packages.

brew install [insert package name here]
This will install a software package onto your system.

brew list
This will list all the packages that are currently installed on your system.

brew info [insert package name here]
Sometimes after you install a package, you get a screenful of information or configuration steps. If you’re like me, you will probably blow right past that and keep working – then it will dawn on you that you probably should have read some of that stuff. This will let you go back and do that.

brew uninstall [insert package name here]
And finally, you may want to remove a package you previously installed. That’s what this is for.

Nytimes.com: Can Mushrooms Treat Depression?
A study published last month in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface compared M.R.I.s of the brains of subjects injected with psilocybin with scans of their normal brain activity. The brains on psilocybin showed radically different connectivity patterns between cortical regions (the parts thought to play an important role in consciousness). The researchers mapped out these connections, revealing the activity of new neural networks between otherwise disconnected brain regions. [ https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8675932 ]

Businessinsider.com: Magic Mushrooms Change Brain Connections
Tripping on magic mushrooms may actually free the mind, a new study says. The compounds in the (illegal) mushrooms change the way the brain works. [...] "The brain does not simply become a random system after psilocybin injection," the researchers wrote, "but instead retains some organizational features, albeit different from the normal state."

Picture the information in your brain being shared across an interconnected and heavily-trafficked system of highways. In that example, psilocybin isn't removing the highways. Instead, it's simply building new ones. These new connections allow parts of the brain that don't usually talk to one another to communicate. People who use magic mushrooms and see the number 52 as glowing bright blue and red, then, don't see it that way because the drugs have made them crazy. Instead, they associate the number with colors because the brain region that detects and interprets color has been chatting it up with the brain region that processes numbers. [...] In depressed people, Nutt believes, the connections between brain circuits in this sense-of-self region are too strong.
