German Historical Museum breaks taboos with exhibition on Hitler | Culture & Lifestyle | Deutsche Welle | 14.10.2010

Billboards with eye-catching images are among museums' favorite advertising strategies, but when it comes to a major exhibition on Hitler in the German capital, the posters are heavy on text and contain no pictures of the Third Reich's dictator.

Nonetheless, the German Historical Museum is breaking new ground with its "Hitler and the Germans - Nation and Crime," which opens Friday. The exhibition is the first to focus specifically on the relationship between Hitler and the German people during the Nazi period, and it breaks with convention in Germany by putting Hitler at the center.

EU approves French online music subsidy | Science & Technology | Deutsche Welle | 14.10.2010

The European Union on Tuesday approved a plan that would let the French government subsidize music purchases through online subscription services.


The scheme would allow French citizens between the ages of 15 and 25 to purchase 50 euro ($70) Carte Musique, or "Music Card," for only 25 euros. The money could be spent on online music subscription services. French officials have said the plan would last for two years and people would be able to buy one subsidized card per year.

Urban artists bring street vibe indoors | Art & Architecture | Deutsche Welle | 11.10.2010

For decades, urban art forms involving spray cans, stencils and paste-ups have been executed under the cover of darkness. Often merging social commentary with urban beautification, artists needed to work quickly - and stay one step ahead of police and security guards.


Now, street art is wandering from the alley to the art gallery - thanks to star underground artists like Britain's Banksy, who auctioned a piece for 288,000 pounds (around $460,000) in 2007 and raised the eyebrows of gallerists the world over.

Need a lift? Phone your car and it'll pick you up | Reuters

(Reuters) - German scientists have unveiled the latest in self-driving car technology -- an autonomous vehicle named "MadeInGermany" (MIG), which passengers can even call for a lift.

Computer scientist Raul Rojas and his team at Berlin's Free University (FU) have developed the experimental car which they hope will revolutionise the future of driving.

Passengers can phone their MIG using an iPad or smartphone and the Global Positioning System integrated into these devices reveals the caller's location to the car, which then works out the best route and tells the passenger how long it will take it to get there.

France24 - Study highlights mental problems in US teens
Around half of US teens meet the criteria for a mental disorder and nearly one in four report having a mood, behavior or anxiety disorder that interferes with daily life, American researchers say.

Fifty-one percent of boys and 49 percent of girls aged 13-19 have a mood, behavior, anxiety or substance use disorder, according to the study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.

In 22.2 percent of teens, the disorder was so severe it impaired their daily activities and caused great distress, says the study led by Kathleen Merikangas of the National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH).

"The prevalence of severe emotional and behavior disorders is even higher than the most frequent major physical conditions in adolescence, including asthma or diabetes," the study says.

Yes; I had this in many forms: Can't Get In Her Blouse Disorder, The Depression of Erupting Pimples, I Can't Dribble A Basketball Phobia, What Can Algebra Do For Me Anxiety and If My Parents Get Another Yellow Car I'll Be Laughed At Forever Moods. Fortunately, now there are drugs for these afflictions...well, there were drugs then, but they weren't sold to the profit of BigPharma.

All hail progress.

Please note that 49% of boys and 51% of girls have not yet been diagnosed with a disorder.

We are working on this. We apologise for the delay.
