There is something rotten .... og fra min RSS-feed

Vyrde Lesar.

I Sarpsborg har alle utdanningsinstitusjonene flyttet til Fredrikstad, de andre er brakkeskoler i forfall og det værste eksempelet er Valaskjold. Det er desverre noe galt med det politiske system i Norge, på alle plan ser det ut til. Og at C-laget trekkes mot politikken som mygg mot lyset, er desverre trist.

Fra min RSS-feed :

Skrikende behov for bussjåfører: Norge trenger 2000 bussjåfører hvert år, men i fjor klarte bare 135 å ta lappen. Et nytt EU-direktiv får skylden.

Advarer mot våpenkappløp i u-land: "Flere utviklingsland har startet et farlig og kostbart våpenkappløp de siste fem årene. Spesielt er kjøpene av dyre kampfly alarmerende, advarer en svensk tenketank."

Kan bli mange tidligpensjonister: "Mange vil tape penger hvis de utsetter valget om tidligpensjon til neste år - og i verste fall risikerer Staten et rush av tidligpensjonister."

Politiet stenger nysgjerrige ute: "Fra i dag av blir det stille på politiets samband i Oslo når det nye krypterte nødnettet tas i bruk. Journalister frykter at det nå blir vanskelig å kontrollere politiets arbeid."

SETI Is 50 Years Old; No Sign of ET: "EagleHasLanded writes 'The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence is 50 years old next month, and still no sign of intelligent alien life. Paul Davies of the Beyond Center (also Chairman of the SETI Post-Detection Taskgroup) says it's time to re-think and expand the search for ET.'

Good Language Choice For School Programming Test?: "An anonymous reader writes 'The Australian Informatics Olympiad programming test is being run in a couple of months. I'm an experienced programmer and I'm thinking of volunteering to tutor interested kids at my children's school to get them ready. There will be children of all levels in the group, from those that can't write 'hello world' in any language, to somewhat experienced programmers. For those starting from scratch, I'm wondering what language to teach them to code in. Accepted languages are C, C++, Pascal, Java, PHP, Python and Visual Basic. I'm leaning towards Python, because it is a powerful language with a simple syntax. However, the test has a run-time CPU seconds limit, so using an interpreted language like Python could put the students at a disadvantage compared to using C. Is it better to teach them something in 2 months that they're likely to be able to code in but possibly run foul of the CPU time limit, or struggle to teach them to code in a more complicated syntax like C/C++ which would however give them the best chance of having a fast solution?'

Turning Gas Flares into Fuel:Microreactor developers race to turn troublesome gas into usable crude oil.
Natural gas may be the cleanest fossil fuel, but it can be an unnecessary pest when it's produced as waste from remote offshore oil wells. Brazilian state oil company Petrobras is fueling a race between two developers of modular chemical reactors that could turn this 'associated gas' into synthetic crude.
