Google ices Android launches in China • The Register

Google ices Android launches in China • The Register

The Chinese are making a huge mistake in the manner that they are handling Google in China. We originally thought that China would simply ignore the issue via the well-known Oriental inscrutability, but the systematic attacks on Google systems from within China - where nothing like that happens without government sanction - are stupidly poisoning the world technology atmosphere - greatly to China's detriment. The pendelum is shifting AGAINST China. We thought the Chinese were smarter than that.

Where China previously had only a handfull of dissidents, they are now creating millions of dissidents throughout the world. What is the sense of that? Buy goods made in China? Some people will reconsider.

The 21st Century Belongs to Women : Half-Day Schools in Germany being replaced by All-Day Schools so that Women can Work

Katrin Beinhold in The Female Factor at the New York Times writes that In Germany, a Tradition Falls, and Women Rise as all-day schooling spreads in a school system traditionally marked by half-day schools:

“This is a taboo we just can’t afford anymore; the country needs women to be able to both work and have children,” said Ursula von der Leyen, the German labor minister. A mother of seven and doctor-turned-politician, she baffles housewives and childless career women alike, not to mention many men in her Christian Democratic Union.

The spread of all-day schooling in Germany, a trend she considers “irreversible,” is a sign of the times, Ms. von der Leyen said in an interview. “The 21st century belongs to women.”
