On the trail of the unexpected – a road trip around Albania

Strange, ancient and beautiful, there’s much to discover amid the cultural crossroads of a country that provides a real adventure
Was it a wolf? As our car swung round yet another tight bend deep in the Albanian countryside, a gangly, shaggy creature watched from the edge. No doubt it was, as we had just left a nature reserve where a panel on local fauna portrayed an identical Canis lupus. Nor was it to be the only unexpected experience in the land of Zog (Albania’s only king, in the 1920s and 30s) which, under the repressive dictator Enver Hoxha, was hermetically sealed apart from the rest of Europe until the 1990s.

The sharp decline in the take-up of humanities degrees is being fuelled by fear

One of the saddest aspects of our times is the harsh world that the right has constructed for our children as they approach adulthood. If you are 16, 18 or indeed 21, in employment terms you are an innocent. The young need to join an organisation that is aware of its social obligations and which has an expectation that it will survive over time, an organisation that recognises it is in its own interest to offer young people the chance to lay the foundations of a career.

It should not only be the town halls, the leading accountancy firms, the civil service, the BBC or the last few big British companies that are virtually the sole suppliers of such a chance, oversubscribed 20 or 30 times for every job they advertise. We need many more alongside them – even more so in an economy in which technology is making the life cycle of firms so much shorter, now closer to 20 years than the 50 of the mid-20th century.

@tootbrute Sadly, this is ephemeral art. In 2014, this same wall was like:

My boss asked me for some work account's password once. "I don't know," I said, "I don't know any of my passwords. I use a password manager and passwords that exceed 32 characters if possible."

My boss thought that was silly. Today, breaking a SHA-256-encoded hash for a 12-character password takes less than an hour.

Services that limit password length give away hints about their shoddy password hashing practices. Do not trust them.

On the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11's Moon landing today, a reminder that pretty much all of NASA's photo/video/audio archive is public domain:

More aesthetically pleasing landscape postcards, specifically of the Isle of Skye, can be found on this website:

The photos on that page probably come from the same period, and the attached photo is also from Colourmaster.

The place I photographed yesterday runs the risk of burning today!😞

I'm glad that we can't live anywhere else. This way we'll have to learn to take care of our planet much better and we won't be able to destroy any other place in the process!

Humanity, love and respect, that's what people should cultivate!
