Ein Freund von mir hat Karten fürs #ChampionsLeague-Finale am Samstag, aber leider…


ein Freund von mir hat 2 Karten fürs champions League-finale am Samstag in Mailand. Leider kollidiert das Datum mit seiner Hochzeit. Er hatte die Tickets schon gekauft, bevor das genaue Datum für die Hochzeit feststand.

Nun die Frage an Euch:

Hat jemand Lust und Zeit, am Samstag zu heiraten? 👰🏻

(Für lustig befundene und adaptierte Nachricht einer Freundin, genaue Quelle leider unbekannt.)

My friend has 2 tickets for the #ChampionsLeague final next Saturday, but…

Dear all, my friend has 2 tickets for next Saturday’s Champions League final in Milan. Unfortunately, the date clashes with his wedding. He had bought the tickets before the exact wedding date was fixed.

Now my question to y’all:

Is anyone interested in getting married next Saturday? 👰🏻

(Credits to a friend. Unfortunately, I do not know the exact source.)

In the centre of the black-and-white image are only the feet of a young woman who is lying on a blanket on a bed with her legs crossed. The seam of her jeans and her wooly socks are clear, whilst the blanket and the background with a book shelf are blurred. In the top right of the image is the name, Markus Böttner, in orange writing; the album title Friend Of the Family, is at the bottom of the image in white.

Combining #SkillsBuilding and #WorkLifeBalance with an Album Release

PhotoService cover.001
I released my first EP recently and am accordingly happy and proud. It has been an interesting, exciting journey and a major element in my self-development and a perfect outlet to readjust my focus for other projects which are in the process of completion. Hashtag #PhD. A perfect opportunity!

The EP is called Friend Of The Family; it is available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and other streaming and download services. You can listen to a short promo preview clip on Youtube, and if and when this has sparked your interest, you can find all streaming and download links, song lyrics and the opportunity to grab a free Friend Of The Family ringtone by clicking here.

Besides my musical development, this production has also been an invaluable experience to develop and put to practice a number of skills which come in handy in working environments, too.

#TagDerMuttersprache -Wieso ist etwas #UnterAllerKanone?

Viele von uns werden die Redewendung, dass etwas unter aller Kanone ist, schon einmal gehört haben – sei es

    seitens unserer Eltern bei der Betrachtung unseres Kinderzimmers oder
    seitens unserer Lehrer bei der Rückgabe einer Klassenarbeit.

Einige von uns haben mit dieser Floskel vielleicht beim Urlaubsrückblick schon einmal zum verbalen Vergeltungsschlag gegen die Hotelküche am Urlaubsort ausgeholt. Doch was hat es mit dieser ominösen Kanone eigentlich auf sich? Hier geht es weiter zur Erklärung.

Accessible WorkOut – Easy and at Home – with runtastic

It was with great interest that I read the MIT Technology Review of assistive technology to help the blind get moving. I, too, have not yet found a running group to join or a tandem cycling partner; and the closest gym is in an area that is not easily accessible to me.

Thankfully, the Austrian fitness platform has a number of apps in the App Store which are accessible to VoiceOver users and thus enable me to stay fit independently at home. Now that we are approaching the season when being active outside is not the most appealing idea for any of us, these apps come in handy for everybody.

Read on for a review and how I use these apps…

Interdisciplinary Proof that all Odd Numbers are Prime Numbers

Several experts were asked to prove that all odd integers higher than 2 are prime.

•Mathematician: 3 is a prime, 5 is a prime, 7 is a prime, and by induction – every odd integer higher than 2 is a prime.
•Physicist: 3 is a prime, 5 is a prime, 7 is a prime, 9 is an experimental error, 11 is a prime. Just to be sure, try several randomly chosen numbers: 17 is a prime, 23 is a prime…
•Engineer: 3 is a prime, 5 is a prime, 7 is a prime, 9 is an approximation to a prime, 11 is a prime, 13 is a prime…
•Biologist: 3 is a prime, 5 is a prime, 7 is a prime, 9 — results have not arrived yet,…
•Psychologist: 3 is a prime, 5 is a prime, 7 is a prime, 9 is a prime but tries to suppress it, 11 is a prime, 13 is a prime…
• Chemist: 3 is a prime, 5 is a prime…Let’s go publish this!
• Politician: 3 is a prime, 5 is a prime, 7 is a prime, 9…is a minority, can be neglected, 11 is a prime, 13 is a prime…
• Architect: 3 is a prime, 5 is a prime, 7 is a prime, I’ll get the engineers to see can we make 9 a prime, 11 is a prime, 13 is a prime…
• Accountant: 3 is a prime, 5 is a prime, 7 is a prime… Do you really need 9 to be a prime? I can add 2, then we have…11 is a prime, 13 is a prime…
• English Teacher: 3 is a prime, 4 is a prime, 5 is a prime…
• Software developer: 3 is a prime, 5 is a prime, 7 is a prime, 9 is a prime, 9 is a prime, 9 is a prime, 9 is a prime, 9 is a prime /stack overflow…
• Theologist: 3 is a prime, and that’s all I want to know.
• Sociologist: 3 is a number, 3 is a prime, and therefore, all numbers are prime.
• Statistician: 100 % of our sample of 5, 13, 17, 29, 41 and 53 are primes; therefore, all odd numbers must be primes.
• Lawyer: 3 is a prime. there we have our precedent. It is even backed up by 5 being a prime and 7 being a prime.
Pope: 9 is a prime. If you do not believe this, you shall be condemned!
University Lecturer: 3 is a prime, 5 is a prime, 7 is a prime, the rest is homework.
