Quote of the Day I

The government of Shanghai says that under new rules residents who fail to visit their elderly parents will get black marks on their credit records.

A new set of regulations released recently by the government of the eastern city says that adult children living apart from their parents should "visit or send greetings often." Parents who think their children are not fulfilling this responsibility can file lawsuits against them for neglect.

Quote of the Day II

Liberal opinion in Britain has, for more than two decades, maintained that most Muslims are just like everyone else. Britain desperately wants to think of its Muslims as versions of the Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain, or the cheeky-chappie athlete Mo Farah. But thanks to the most detailed and comprehensive survey of British Muslim opinion yet conducted, we now know that just isn't how it is.

-- Trevor Phillips, former head of Britain's Equalities and Human Rights Commission

Take this 25-question quiz, based on a similar one published in Murray's 2012 book, "Coming Apart: The State of White America 1960-2010," to find out just how thick your bubble is.

The Westerplatte Moment

Each of you, my young friends, will find in life some personal "Westerplatte." Some measure of tasks that have to be undertaken and fulfilled. Some rightful cause for which one cannot avoid fighting. Some duty, or necessity, which one cannot shun. From which one cannot desert. Finally, some order of truth and values, which must be held and defended, like this Westerplatte, within oneself and around oneself.

-- Pope John Paul II (1987)

That Time Soviet School Children Bugged the US Ambassador's Office

The Thing went undetected for years because it was small, required no power source, and was not an active transmitter. Rather it worked by modulating incoming microwave signals with room audio and re-radiating it at a different harmonic frequency. To power it the Soviets had to beam a strong UHF signal at the embassy and have a good receiver listening on the harmonic frequency.
