 universal translators in sci-fi: how do
 they know when to stop translation?
 Like say an alien asks about deserts on
 earth, and the human lists "the sahara
 desert, gobi desert and kalahari desert"
 Alien: You just said "desert" six times.

O Brasil é conhecido por muitas coisas, inclusive por sua felicidade. O brasileiro consegue levar tudo com alegria – um exemplo disso foi a nossa simpática hospitalidade para com os gringos, tanto durante a Copa do Mundo (2014) quanto durante os Jogos Olímpicos (2016). Porém, segundo a ONU, o país caiu 5 posições, ocupando agora o 22º lugar no Ranking Mundial da Felicidade, de acordo com os dados de 2014 a 2016. Tal notícia saiu na última segunda-feira (20). Não se preocupe q o Brasil não está entre os 20 mais felizes, o ranking conta com 155 países participantes. Ou seja, estamos à frente de 133 nações. A pesquisa foi feita para cerca de 100.000 pessoas em cada um dos países. Se você acha q entregaram um questionário enorme para cada uma dos entrevistados, aí q se engana. Todo o resultado foi extraído de apenas uma pergunta: “Imagine uma escada com degraus numerados de zero a dez, da base ao topo. O topo da escada representa a melhor vida possível para você e a base, a pior vida possível. Em q degrau você sente q está agora?” No geral, a média das respostas acabou sendo a “nota de felicidade” do país. Contudo, o relatório completo analisa os dados econômicos e sociais, como PIB per capita, percepção de corrupção, expectativa de vida, entre outros, para analisar as notas. Brasil é líder em casos de depressão em toda a América Latina.

Para deixar a moral brasileira ainda mais abalada, a ONU também anunciou q o Brasil continua em 79º lugar no ranking de qualidade de vida, q mede o Índice de Desenvolvimento Humano (IDH) de 188 nações.

burundi: Don't think your gold grows on trees. @chakabars December 19th, 2016. At least 20 dead in Congo gold mine collapse, says minister At least 20 people were killed in a gold mine collapse in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a local minister said on Sunday. The deaths occurred overnight at a mine in South Kivu region in the east of the country, the province’s mines minister Apollinaire Bulindi said. The toll is likely to rise “because many people were working in a disorderly way in this quarry,” Bulindi said, referring to “illegal miners”. The Makungu mine where the accident took place is located in the Fizi district of Sud Kivu near the border with the Tanganyika province. “We (the provincial authorities) do not control this quarry, these are soldiers who are working there...,” he said. Mining accidents are common in mineral rich DR Congo. Last year, 15 people have suffocated while digging in an illegal mine in southeast, where the problem of illicit mining is widespread. Much of the gold mined in Sud Kivu is smuggled out of the country to Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi, and from there allegedly to Dubai, according to the OECD. Rebel militia frequently use illicit gold trading as a source of financing. President Joepeh Kabila in 2010 imposed a nine-month ban on illegal mining in three provinces including Sud Kivu. It hit cassiterite and coltan mining but failed to have any impact on the gold mining there, OECD added. chakabars (source Hindustantimes.com)
