The Case of the Top Secret iPod

It was a gray day in late 2005. I was sitting at my desk, writing code for the next year’s iPod. Without knocking, the director of iPod Software—my boss’s boss—abruptly entered and closed the door behind him. He cut to the chase. “I have a special assignment for you. Your boss doesn’t know about it. You’ll help two engineers from the US Department of Energy build a special iPod. Report only to me.”

Schau dir "SABATON - The Attack Of The Dead Men (Official Music Video)" auf YouTube an https://youtu.be/LRNuWYvRtac

On this day
The Attack of the Dead Men was a battle of World War I that took place at Osowiec Fortress, in northeast Poland, on August 6, 1915. The incident got its name from the bloodied, zombie-like appearance of the Russian combatants after they were bombarded with a mixture of poison gases, chlorine and bromine, by the Germans. (from Wikipedia)

Kondo Isami — Badass of the Week
“Not one of the paper screens was left intact, all of them having been smashed to pieces. The wooden boards of the ceiling were also torn apart where men who had been hiding under the floorboards were stabbed with spears from below. The tatami mats in a number of the rooms, both upstairs and downstairs, were spotted with fresh blood. Particularly pitiful were arms and feet, and pieces of facial skin with the hair still attached scattered about.”

—Nagakura Shinpachi, assistant vice commander of the Shinsengumi
Wow, absolutely badass troops and what a massacre they did. Seriously.

Menschenhandel - Eine kurze Geschichte der Sklaverei - Geschichte | ARTE
Die Geschichte der Sklaverei beginnt nicht erst auf Baumwollfeldern. Sie reicht bis in die frühesten Hochkulturen der Menschheit zurück. Bis zur Abschaffung der Sklaverei eroberte der Menschenhandel riesige Territorien, setzte seine eigenen Grenzen und schuf seine eigenen Gesetze in einer Welt der Gewalt, Machtbesessenheit und Profitgier.

Entire Roman city revealed without any digging


#science #archeology #history

For the first time, archaeologists have succeeded in mapping a complete Roman city, Falerii Novi in Italy, using advanced ground penetrating radar (GPR), allowing them to reveal astonishing details while it remains deep underground. The technology could revolutionise our understanding of ancient settlements.

The Fate of Elevators in the Post-Pandemic City - CityLab

The lengthiest of early elevator dilemmas, though, seems to have been whether should a man remove his hat when sharing a lift with a lady. On this topic the New York Times regularly published opinions, articles, and satire from the 1880s well into the 1920s. At stake was not only the practicality of hat-doffing in general but also the peculiar space of elevator itself: Was it more like a waiting room or a subway car? In the end, social arbiters decided the elevator was a means of conveyance, which meant heads could stay covered. (Still, as Don Draper once demonstrated, the matter might not have been fully settled by the 1960s.)
Hah!
