Petřín Lookout Tower / Petřínská rozhledna


"Petřín Lookout Tower, one of the most prominent landmarks of Prague, was built as part of the Jubilee Exhibition in 1891 as a loose copy inspired by the Eiffel Tower (at a ratio of 1:5). It is 63.5 metres high, and 299 steps lead to its peak, which is at the same altitude as the real Eiffel Tower. The view from its top overlooks not only the whole city, but on a clear day you can see nearly all of Bohemia."

Hi, my name is Ivan Kutskir, I am 29 y.o. and I live in Prague, the Czech Republic. I created Photopea , an advanced image editor which works in a web browser. There were 7 million visitors in July.

I started to work on it in 2012, the first version was published in 2013, it was just my hobby until 2016, when I graduated and started to work on it full-time. I did not fully "believe" in Photopea until 2017, when I started to monetize it (with ads) and was able to make $400 a month :)

I had an AMA on Reddit over a year ago and I would like to tell you what happened since then... Show more...

Anyone else thinks hackatons are a terrible idea?


A group of programmers in my country ( #czech ) decided they'll create #software for #government for free during 48 hours, for free. While that seems cool at first, I think that is in fact a very #bad idea. Why?

Well imagine you want to do the same e.g. with a building. To save the architect's time and money on his salary you tell him to design the building in one hour as best as he can. While you'll immediately save money, the result will likely be a building that's badly designed, will have many issues you'll be paying for during the next decades.

Hackatons, gaming jams etc. are extremely popular because they look cool and save time, but they create terrible results and teach v... Show more...

 
UNEP UNSCEAR - RADIATION EFFECTS and SOURCES

Do Frogs Exist There Too?


a #poem by #Czech poet Jan #Neruda from his 1878 poem collection Písně Kosmické, translated by D. P. Stern of #NASA

Frogs sat around a puddle
And gazed at heavens high
Frog teacher pounding into skulls
The science of the sky.

He spoke about the heavens
Bright dots we see there burning
And men watch them, "astronomers"
Like moles they dig for learning.

When these moles start to map the stars
The large becomes quite small
What's twenty million miles to us
They call one foot, that's all.

So, as those moles did figure out
(If you believe their plan)
Neptune is thirty feet away
Venus, less than one.

If we chopped up the Sun, he said

In March of 2007, the website WorldNetDaily published an article entitled “ #Environmentalism is new #communism”. In it, the former #Czech president, Vaclav #Klaus, stated: “It becomes evident that, while discussing climate, we are not witnessing a clash of views about the #environment, but a clash of views about human #freedom.” He goes on to describe environmentalism as “the biggest #threat to #

Katedrála Svatého Víta (Catedral de San Vito, Praga, República Checa)

 
I have found an old postcard with a #photo of a nearby town ( #Zlin, #Moravia, #Czech ) in #1898! Indeed I've scanned the photo and uploaded it to Wikimedia Commons and Internet archive, which is of course my moral duty. By chance I went to that city today so I've taken a photo from roughly the same place. Here is a comparison -- 1898 vs 2019:

Czech arts minister Antonín Staněk resigns over rising criticism

In his resignation announcement Mr. Staněk said he no longer felt he had the party’s backing in his “fight for justice and the law”, explaining that he was acceding to party boss Jan Hamáček’s wishes that he step down within weeks.
“I think it will help. It will calm the situation down. Because of course the pressure was great. I actually thought this is how it would end. It’s clear that Minister Staněk is going because that’s what the Social Democrats want.”

The Social Democrats chairman Jan Hamáček tweeted on Wednesday that Mr. Staněk’s replacement would need to deliver calm and fresh energy to the ministry. His nominee for that task will be revealed at the end of this month, he said.

European Foreign Ministers Hit Back at Pence's Threats to Turkey

Less than 24 hours after Vice President Mike #Pence sharply warned #Turkey that its purchase of the Russian S-400 missile system could risk diminishing its role in the NATO alliance, the foreign ministers of the #Czech Republic and #Hungary — both members of #NATO — told Newsmax they had no desire to see Turkey punished in any way.

In addition, #Greece’s foreign minister also voiced strong distaste for threats such as Pence’s against Turkey’s status in NATO.
