Skyandtelescope: See Comet Lovejoy Tonight - Sky & Telescope (Alan MacRobert)
Comet Lovejoy is about magnitude 3.8, and it should remain that bright for several more days. It's high in the evening sky for your binoculars or low-power, wide-field telescope. It's also dimly visible to the unaided eye under dark-sky conditions - if you know exactly where to look!

Spiegel: Neue Snowden-Dokumente: Die NSA rüstet zum Cyber-Feldzug - SPIEGEL ONLINE (Marcel Rosenbach)

Von Jacob Appelbaum, Aaron Gibson, Claudio Guarnieri, Andy Müller-Maguhn, Laura Poitras, Marcel Rosenbach, Leif Ryge, Hilmar Schmundt und Michael Sontheimer

Die Geheimdienste betreiben nicht mehr nur Überwachung und Spionage. Dokumente aus dem Fundus von Edward Snowden, die dem SPIEGEL vorliegen, zeigen: Sie wollen die Herrschaft im Internet und bereiten digitale Kriege vor.

2014 / 2015

Ich wünsche euch allen einen wunderbaren letzten Tag in 2014 und einen noch besseren Start ins Jahr 2015!

Netzpolitik: netzpolitik.org - Überraschung: Facebook ist kein Marktplatz, sondern ein privatisierter öffentlicher Raum (Markus Beckedahl)

Die New York Times enthüllt nochmal die schockierende Erkenntnis, dass sich Facebook im Zweifelsfall für mehr Profit und gegen Meinungsfreiheit entscheiden wird: Facebook Is Not the Public Square. Because social media businesses have become such a fixture in modern life, many people might think of them as the digital equivalent of the public square where opinions can be freely shared. But ...

... schöner Schluss-Satz:
Kommerzielle soziale Netzwerke sind eben kein Marktplatz, sondern privatisierte öffentliche Räume. Aber alles schön bunt hier/dort!11

Npr: 2014: The Year In Tiny Desk Concerts (Stephen Thompson)

Surveying a year of concerts that took place behind a desk in NPR Music's offices, we offer up highlights from T-Pain to the Pixies to a 12-piece Balkan brass extravaganza.

It's been a remarkable year for Tiny Desk Concerts: We've published a whopping 83 of them in 2014 alone, eclipsed the 400-episode mark without noticing, helped T-Pain score 6.6 million YouTube views, and launched a contest to bring an unknown band to the Tiny Desk in 2015.

So it wasn't easy to whittle down this list of highlights, which is only about 70 spots shy of definitive.

184.709 Wähler haben in der EU-Wahl für Die PARTEI gestimmt. Damit hätten wir plötzlich einen Anspruch auf rund 240.000 Euro aus dem Topf der “Parteienfinanzierung” – rund 157 Millionen aus Steuergeldern, die sich bisher die etablierten Parteien (CDU und so) teilen.

Scienceblogs: Das "Goldene Brett 2014" geht an Xavier Naidoo (Florian Freistetter)
Am Donnerstag wurde das "Goldene Brett 2014″ verliehen. Mit diesem Satirepreis wird jedes Jahr der "skurrilste, haarsträubendste, dreisteste pseudowissenschaftliche Nonsense-Beitrag des Jahres im deutschen Sprachraum" ausgezeichnet. Und wie in den Jahren zuvor hat sich auch dieses Mal ein äußerst würdiger Preisträger gefunden: Xavier Naidoo.

Pitchfork: Die Antwoord Enlist Marilyn Manson, Jack Black, Flea, Cara Delevingne, More for "Ugly Boy" Video


Die Antwoord have shared the video for "Ugly Boy", from this year's Donker Mag. Directed by Ninja and produced by Yo-Landi Vi$$er, it features the duo doing their usual thing of rapping and singing while looking real, real weird. Only this time, they enlisted a bunch of famous friends to do the same. Jack Black, Marilyn Manson, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, the ATL Twins, Dita Von Teese, and model Cara Delevingne all show up wearing makeup and/or scar tissue to mug with Ninja and Yo-Landi. (Except for Manson and Von Teese, who basically came as is.)

And, despite internet rumors, that's not Aphex Twin in blackface and the "Hi, My Name is God" sweatshirt. Sorry.

Npr: Cafe Tacvba's Groundbreaking Influence, Then And Now





We're always thrilled to share new music. But this week is a special treat, as some of Alt.Latino's favorite new artists release new music that's driving us crazy (in a good way). We also celebrate the 20th anniversary of Cafe Tacvba's album Re — a crucial, seminal record that changed Latin music as we know it.

Any lover of contemporary Latin music will tell you that when Re came out, there was a moment of pause: This is how Latin rock is supposed to sound. It's cool to hear "El Aparato" alongside newer artists who were clearly inspired by the Mexican music legends.

As if that weren't enough to have us happily humming throughout the week, we've got an interview about the new film The Book Of Life with NPR's Mandalit Del Barco. Not only does the film look stellar, but it also features a spine-tingling rendition of Cafe Tacvba's "El Aparato."

So join us for another jam-packed, dance-inducing episode of Alt.Latino — and, as always, let us know what you think in the Comments.
