Ubuntu 安裝思源字體

Annotations:
  • 打自 Google 推出 思源 CJK 字體 (noto) 之後,我第一天就裝起來玩了。用了一陣子之後覺得真是不錯,即使字體設小,也是相當清析。不過我看不慣它的英文字型,太寬了點。最好的解決方案是英文和中文可以指定不同字型,別的系統可能做不到,但 Linux 就是什麼都能客製,難不倒它。

默克尔愿为世界安定付出代价 - 评论 - FT中文网

Annotations:
  • 上月,因莫斯科在乌克兰内战中支持武装分裂分子,欧盟(EU)28个成员国一致同意,对俄罗斯采取更严厉的制裁。这个决议让克里姆林宫震惊。普京原以为默克尔会反对采取任何严重影响德国出口商的行动。

     

  • 根据一些高官的说法,默克尔最终失去了对普京的信任,因为在俄方插手乌克兰事务及约束分裂分子方面,她认为普京屡次对她说了谎(他们的通电话次数超过了三十次)。对默克尔来说,信任事关重大。

奧巴馬:中國總係搭順風車(free rider),他們搭了30年的順風車,而且一直沒有什麼問題。 | 852郵報

Annotations:
  • 針對伊拉克問題,美國日前宣布對伊拉克的「伊斯蘭國」(IS)武裝組織進行空襲,而全世界又總看著奧巴馬的言行,但其實中國是目前在伊拉克最大的能源投資者,弗里德曼就問奧巴馬,是否會要求中國應該成為一個「持份者」(stakeholder),而不只搭「順風車」時,奧巴馬就坦率回應,指中國「確實總係搭順風車(free rider)」,「他們搭了30年的順風車,而且一直沒有什麼問題。」而說穿了,就是可以不勞而獲。

Twister (software) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Annotations:
  • It is, basically, a conjunction between the social network Twitter and some computing projects more efficient and correct: the cryptocurrency Bitcoin and the file exchange method BitTorrent, both based on P2P technologies.

     

  • Twister uses the same parameters of elliptic curves as Bitcoin: secp256k1.This isn’t the curve that was usually implicated by the NSA, called sec256r1. A 256 bits of Public-key cryptography (no comprometido), ECC must proportionate a security similar to a key RSA of 3072 bits (al at least that is what is said by the experts) .

經濟學人:餘額寶「危險了」 - 中時電子報

Annotations:
  • 餘額寶受熱捧的原因很簡單。大陸政府對存款利率設有上限,但阿里巴巴有效的突破了這一障礙,讓儲戶的錢得以直接進入沒有利率上限的銀行間市場進行投資。從儲戶的角度來看,他們的選擇是顯而易見的:要麼把錢存在銀行裡,一年期利率只有3.3%,要麼存在收益甚至高出兩倍的餘額寶裡。而且,餘額寶存錢和取錢要方便得多。

  • 阿里巴巴創始人馬雲去年曾放言,「如果銀行不改變,我們就改變他們」。從這個意義上說,餘額寶做到了。

This Photo Says A Lot About MH17 Downing - Business Insider

Annotations:
  • This is a sign the missile, most probably fired by an SA-11 system according to almost all reports to date, equipped with a proximity fuse, detonated on the right side of the aircraft not too far from the nose, scattering several fragments of shrapnel so fast that they traversed the plane from side to side: they entered through the right side of the airframe and got out from the left one.

纽约客:美国食物的超级革命

Annotations:
  • 在过去十年间,硅谷的文化输出之一就是“生活黑客”(life hacking)理念,旨在寻找一些诀窍来将每天必做的事情简单化,从而节省出更多时间做自己想做的事情。莱因哈特的“明日之食”看来就是一个不错的解决方法。各地的生活黑客们开始亲自试验,并制定出自己的配方。红迪网(Reddit)上还有些人在争论放钙镁粉的合适剂量为多少。三个月后,莱因哈特发觉他的饮剂正是成立公司的好创意,“它带给我的价值远远超过任何软件应用。”他和室友们把软件思想搁置到一边,开始从事合成食品的生意。

     

  • 但是,从农场到餐桌一条龙式服务的精神完全忽视了工人阶级,而这个群体不得不靠低价食品产业生活并忍受它所带来的副作用—肥胖症、糖尿病,还有营养不良——这尤其的讽刺。
  •  我一边跟着莱因哈特转悠,一边开始为他的商业方案里可能存在一个的漏洞担忧:Soylent的配方就挂在网上,他要如何盈利呢?很难想象可口可乐会做这样的事。但是Soylent的投资人、也是Reddit网站的创始人之一的阿莱克西斯·奥哈尼恩(Alexis Ohanian)却说:“这是我所见过的最棒的营销方案,尽管他们自己不这么想。
  • 但是,Soylent让你意识到我们是如何在维持日常生存的名义下纵容自己的欲望的。
  • 我问这些Skurves,他们食用“Soylent”有无任何社会反响。他们看了看彼此,艾琳说,“第一周比较糟糕,因为你的屁实在太臭”

     

  • 莱因哈特提到,原来这个问题更严重。当他第一次将“全能营养源”的配方发布在网上后:他高估了硫磺的量。几周时间里,他和助手们放出一阵阵的硫磺气体。“我让一个爵士剧场立刻清了场有一次我清空了一个爵士剧场”,他回想道。

     

  • 莱因哈特又一次提及巴克敏斯特﹒富勒(Buckminster Fuller):“巴克有一个关于再生加速化的重要想法,某种跟鬼魂差不多的东西——是一种纯能量或者信息。
