Croatian philosopher Srecko Horvat is going on a journey across Europe, searching for the connections between the crises he believes are tearing the continent apart. Unemployment, debt and an influx of refugees are often pointed to as the causes of a European identity crisis. But, Horvat asks, could they in fact be the results of it? He travels from Idomeni in Greece, where in 2015 refugees fleeing war and poverty entered Europe, to the dockyards of the Greek port of Pireaus, where workers' unions say they are fighting a new kind of privatisation, and from Romania, where people are fighting to protect their forests from international investment firms, to the City of London. Along the way, he argues that the real cause of Europe's identity crisis stems from the trauma of it colonising itself. "I think Idomeni is the best metaphor for what's happening in Europe today," he reflects.

Whenever I end up with a new vehicle I ultimately end up sticking in a new GPS/Receiver combination for better sound quality and a better GPS. I am quite at home tearing into a dashboard as I was licensed to install CB radios in my teens as well as being the local go-to guy for 8-track stereo upgrades in the 70’s. I have spent a portion of my life laying upside down in a puddle on the car floor peering up into the mess of wires and brackets trying to keep things from dropping on my face. If you remember my post on my Datsun 280ZXT , I laid in that same position while welding in a clutch pedal bracket while getting very little welding slag on my face. I did make a note that the next time I convert a car from an automatic to a manual to do so while things are still disassembled. Swapping out a factory radio usually involves choosing whether to hack into the existing factory wiring wire-by-wire, or my preference, getting a cable harness that mates with the factory plug and making an adapter out of it by splicing it to the connector that comes with the new radio.

[Steve1001] disassembles the unit with a knife, drills a new hole, and adds an additional wire. The process isn't complicated but seeing how its done might keep you from tearing up one in the disassembly attempt. Finding a local source for crystal earpieces might be tough, but piezo speakers are common on things that make beeps like motherboards or microwave ovens. Hackaday's own [Steven Dufresne] shows how to convert one into a workable crystal earpiece in a video below. We've seen him make other homemade versions , too. Of course, big time crystal radios have amplifiers and can use conventional speakers and earphones. Filed under: radio hacks , repair hacks

It was the day before Christmas. I woke up in a great mood, had a lovely breakfast, and kissed my girlfriend goodbye at midday before hopping in the car. As I drove off I called my father, who had been my wrenching companion throughout the journey. You won't believe it it's running so great! It's awesome! It hasn't run this well since I've had it! He was as pleased as I was to hear the mighty Feroza was back out, tearing up the streets. I made it another kilometer down the road before it happened. The light ahead of me turned green and I let out the clutch to start moving. The car coughed heavily and I lurched to a stop. I didn't think anything of it just a stall, I thought. I tried to restart the car and was immediately filled with dread. The starter was freely turning the engine again. No compression. Surely not.

He has indicated that his perception of geography is binary, dividing the world into Muslim-lands and non-Muslim-lands - in the very same manner that some radical Islamists do. Jacques Derrida has argued that hospitality is always tinted with hostility and fear. Sociologists often argue that xenophobia and racism are generated by the presence of the "other", which migrants and refugees are often characterised as. I am alarmed by the surge of new populism in USA and Europe , which is tearing apart the universal right to asylum. The only way to counter this trend is via free debate in the public sphere. Migrants and refugees do not have to be strangers. This is where civil society and the press could step in, given the chance. 'The dead are coming' Center of Political Beauty. Let us take the example of a group called the Center for Political Beauty in Germany.

In their ongoing campaign to position their gyms as no-judgment zones, Planet Fitness worked with agency Hill Holliday to develop this wonderfully hammy ad for the New Years' resolution crowd. 9) New York Lottery It's a common icebreaker question: What would you do if you won the lottery? If you're like the guy in this ad for the New York Lottery , your answer involves dogs. A lot of dogs. To promote their Cash4Life game, the state-run lottery teamed up with McCann New York to highlight one of the nonmaterial benefits of winning: having more free time to volunteer. It's a simple spot with an uplifting message -- featuring some hilarious slow-motion closeups of running dogs. 10) Angel Soft I never thought I'd be tearing up at a toilet paper ad, but this one for Angel Soft from Deutsch is surprisingly heartwarming. The ad chronicles a single dad raising a daughter on his own, and it does a great job capturing some the little, commonly overlooked moments of growing up -- all framed in the context of toilet paper, of course.

On the one hand he has chosen those who are quite obviously guardians of the Old World like military generals, billionaires, oil barons, ex Goldman-Sachs executives, etc. On the other hand he does not fit the mold of traditional USA presidents at all; he shows obvious signs of impulsiveness which could cause events that really shake up our world; he does not comply with traditional rituals and courtesies that have kept the Old World with structure; he is committed to doing business HIS WAY to a fault; he makes relationship with those who have traditionally been considered enemies; he is looking to tear down programs like Obamacare and the Iran deal; and he is planning on moving the USA Israel center to Jerusalem which would cause great turmoil and conflict in the Middle East. So you can see some of what is coming: a desire to keep the Old World stronger than ever before- while tearing it down at the same time.

Indecent, extreme, and disagreeable people aren't going to solve anything. We've become a nation of architecture astronauts, spending our energy on ideological flame wars instead of shipping code that works. There's a fine line between being a critic and a contrarian, and being a hater tearing down the progress other people are trying to achieve. Once you get to the extreme of opposing all mandatory vaccinations , I would say you've left reason behind. Given what we understand about network effects, advocating freedom to engage in antisocial behavior without sanction seems like rejecting the categorical imperative and reason-based Western morality. Elevating individual freedom to the highest and only moral good, and following that to its extreme conclusion on matters of asteroids and vaccinations, seems like bad code. In the extreme, it leads somewhere between indifference to the possibility bad choices may create human suffering and outright cruelty.
