  1. I don't know how they handle fake asylum seekers, but at least my EU country is deporting them back to their countries of origin. The people who really need help are allowed to stay. The system and situation is still far from perfect, but it's improving.
  2. Germany and Europe has done pretty well under Merkel's leadership. There has been mistakes on immigration etc. but lessons has already been learned and not to be made again.
  3. Teaching English to a Thai child

    One trick is to make him to watch movies, which are spoken in English and subtitled in Thai. That way he gets used to hearing the language. While he is learning English otherwise, he will also pickup the language from the movies. You can also play some English music on the background. When he gets the basics, let him read English children books / comics.
  4. The myth of melting ice and rising seas

    I'm quite aware of this phenomena. It's actually the how the lakes up north get oxygen surge during the times when the surface water is heavier than water in the bottoms of the lakes. https://www.nationalgeographic.org/media/lake-turnover/ I'm also aware that water is pretty able to conduct heat and distribute it further. On oceans, which are interconnected, this heat travels to other parts of the oceans, expanding the water further. Naturally this heat expansion works in everywhere where the Sun's radiation hits the ocean surface.
  5. I hope assisted euthanasia would become a common practise anywhere in the world. It would allow dignifying and painless departure for those who wish to end their journey. Some countries already offer assisted suicide as a service, but it's still a rarity. It's not the length of the life, it's the quality of it.
  6. The myth of melting ice and rising seas

    The rising sea levels fcom from different factors. 1) Ice on landmasses. Practically Greenland, Antarctica and northern glaziers. Melted water adds directly to the sea levels. When ice melts, the pressure on the ground releases, which rises the land which was previously underneath the ice. This can been seen happening in Scandinavia, Canada and Russia. 2) While melting the ice on top of the sea doesn't add any water to the sea, it still rises the sea levels. This is because ice is a pretty great reflector of Sun's radiation. When this reflector is removed, the dark sea is an excellent absorber of the radiation. This heats the oceans and when water gets hotter, it expands. While water expands only tiny amounts locally, the oceans are huge.

    I'm not sure if that works as an example of sealevel rising. Quite like the other, 'ports have moved to inland'. Turkey has few fault lines and experiences frequent earthquakes. This moves local plates up and down, but doesn't have a global effect.

    If Kubica has been out of F1 circuit for 6 years, what makes him so great that the teams wishes him to be back after all those lost years? That 6 years is already as itself an expiration time for the most moderately skilled F1 drivers. There are not too many who can stay in the game longer than that.
  9. That's a very good point.
  10. The myth of melting ice and rising seas

    This is actually quite interesting. I'm far left when I talk with the people from USA. I'm also far right when I talk with the people from my European country. This has been the theme as long as I have remembered. The US left are not even close to the far right, what european people think of. What unites us is the liberal values. "Why should our country deny our rights to do what we individuals want". I thought the conservatives were supporting that very thought at some point?
  11. The myth of melting ice and rising seas

    That's not due overpopulation, it's because a) war people are looking for better life. The Rohingyas have been fleeing the mass killings by the Myanmar Buddhist for years. Some of them did come to Thailand, which had camps to contain them. This lead to different kind of human trafficking issues. I believe the real reason for Myanmar army to occupy the Rohingyas land was the natural resources found there. Greed, not the overpopulation. The obvious reason it often is.
  12. F1 2017

    I'm not sure why the F1 teams are still interested of Kubica, but he being out of the F1 for several years, trying to get his arm working again.. and the F1 teams are still interested of him, tells me that he had some impressive skills. The skills to overcome all of that recovery time. How many years it was since his last F1 race?
  13. I'm not a naval expert, but this sounds a lot like the story of weapons of mass destruction of Iraq. Don't let the USA to have a fake reason to attack North Korea and cause a huge and potentially nuclear war, simply because some folks who gain a lot of money from war, wishes so. Long sentence, read it again. This stupid war mongering must stop. There are very few people who gain from these conflicts. There are way more people who suffer the consequences of these conflicts.
  14. Poor Croc. Quick death sentence would have been more merciful end to it's life? #Milo
