Twitter Censors German Neo-Nazi Group, Within Germany

Marianne013 Re:Settle down, everyone. (227 comments)

So...Germany is another country without free speech guarantee laws?

Correct. Germany, like most countries, has never recognized freedom of expression as a basic human right. Frederick the Great regularly pardoned people that violated the lese-majesty laws, but most other Germans have been less tolerant.

Article 5 of the German constitution would contradict that, but don't let facts get in the way.

Tevatron To Shut Down At End of 2011

Marianne013 Re:Modern world has its priorities wrong (260 comments)

It should be pointed out that this is because the United States refuse to fully join CERN, not because of some Euro-centric protectionism.

Australian Women Fight Over "Geekgirl" Trademark

Marianne013 Re:Why 'girl'? (187 comments)

Why do women, even the most intelligent ones, tend to use the word girl in their names?

Answer: They don't. I find it quite offensive to be called a girl no matter what the context. I cringe when allegedly grown-ups use it to describe themselves. My four year old is a girl, I am not (any more and haven't been in along time). On that note, I am not 'Miss' either. I am a grown woman who happens to be good with computers.

UK Gov't Wants Facebook To Feature Child Safety Button

Marianne013 Re:Dear Parents... (237 comments)

Well if I monitor my offspring all its waking hours (ever tried this with a 15 year old???) then I can't go to work and I am a benefits scrounger. I guess it's my fault for not having married a rich guy, but he was so cute :-)

Workplace BlackBerry Use May Spur Lawsuits

Marianne013 Re:Turned it down (286 comments)

"Emails were only checked maybe twice a day on the weekends.." That's working and really does prove the OP point, even if it was not intended that way. I never check my email on weekends (and I like my job) and so far it hasn't done me any harm.

Nicola Cabibbo dies aged 75

Marianne013 Marianne013 writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Marianne013 (1323185) writes "Nicola Cabibbo who at least in the particle physics community (though not by the Nobel prize committee) is considered one of the main contributors on understanding the weak interaction of quarks died August 16th. His (perceived) snub by the Nobel Prize committee in 2008 caused considerable uproar in the particle physics community at the time though he never commented.
He was also president of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences ."
