Wie man täglich 10000 Menschen kostenfrei mit Essen versorgt

1 Share

Gurudwara Bangla Sahib ist Delhis größter Sikh-Tempel und heißt alle willkommen, dort kostenfrei zu essen. Ganz gleich welcher Religion sie angehören. Die Küche ist 24 Stunden am Tag geöffnet und wird durch freiwillige Helfer am Laufen gehalten. Es gibt einfaches Essen, das jedoch jeden satt zu machen weiß. Jeder, der zu Besuch kommt, kann sich freiwillig für einfache Jobs melden, um so die Produktion zu unterstützen. So essen im Gurudwara Bangla Sahib täglich um die 10000 Menschen kostenfrei. Tolles Konzept, das bemerkenswert umgesetzt wird.

Data Cuisine: Rezepte als… – Wie nennt man das? Eine Visualisierung von Daten ist es nicht… Kulinarisierung? Ja, Kulinarisierung, jedenfalls: – Rezepte als Kulinarisierung von Daten. Und zwar nicht auf die billige „Oh look, Infographics made from Vegetables“-Art, sondern die Daten fließen direkt in die Zubereitung der Speisen ein. Das Teil rechts nennt sich zum Beispiel Criminal herring in fur coat: „Each layer represents one type of crime“. Die Törtchen oben heißen „Requiem for Science“ und bilden die Kürzungen des Wissenschafts-Budgets in Spanien ab:

This fascinating dish provides a multi-layered representation of a simple, but striking statistic: science funding in Spain was cut by a staggering 34% over the last few years.

Antonija Kuzmanic decided to represent this huge drop in funding with two almond cakes (Tortas de Santiago) — based on the same recipe, but prepared differently. The first one was made applying “scientific” techniques (foaming the dough with a siphon and microwaving it for 45 seconds), representing the situation before the cuts, while the second cake represents today.

It was baked in the traditional way without advanced techniques, and turned out considerably drier and denser. In addition, the amount of sugar used in the cakes is proportional to the different amounts of funding in science, resulting in a much less enjoyable experience for the “non-science” cake.

Google Graveyard

Google announced recently that its it's RSS aggregator Google Reader will be retired later this year. It's just the latest in a long line of Google products offered and then pulled, some living longer than others. They didn't all die of unpopularity. Some were replaced, like Google Video when the company acquired YouTube, some were combined into other existing products, and some were popular but not profitable. Some of the products in the graveyard you've never even heard of because they were doomed from birth. There are 39 graves in the "cemetery" at Slate, and you're invited to leave a virtual flower for the ones you actually miss. Link -via the Presurfer
