The Count of St Germain (Part 2)  

If you wished you could do all the things the Count of Saint Germain could do, meet all the people he had met, and learn all the secrets of life he seemed to possess, and on top of it all, have several lifetimes to employ your skills, what then? The question is, what would you do with these gifts? Would you be content to merely be the life of the party, or would you try and make a difference in the affairs of nations and enlighten humanity, even if it cost you your freedom or your once immortal life? Depending on your answer, the bigger question might be, does it take the right person to seek the mysteries, or do the mysteries seek the right person? Tonight's Quote: “I thought, with all due respect to Madame la Comtesse, that the devil had long since made a mantle out of the skin of this personage.” — Madame d’Adhemar’s maid, as she explained that the Count of Saint Germain was waiting to see her. From d’Adhemar’s book, “Souvenirs de la Marie Antoinette” published in 1836.

Bicycle symbol causes fued between father and son aspiring to political top job  

India's election commission has stepped in to end a bitter feud between a father and son, over a bicycle. The commission's decision to award the bicycle to the son could clear his path to eventually challenge Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the top job. It's not a real bike, but a symbol - this week election officials gave the chief minister of India's most populous state the right to use that bike in a forthcoming poll - a decision with potentially far-reaching consequences.

Ep202 – APIs: Plug into Banking - FinTech Insider by 11:FS  

What are APIs? We break it down in today's episode with some great guests. But a little taste: All the connected apps you use on your phone talk via APIs to get their data. So when you check the weather, says David Andrzejek, the weather app on your phone makes an API call to a system to get the weather data. Lesley-Anne Vaughan says APIs are like ordering from a menu at a restaurant. You place your order from the menu, which is like an API call out to the kitchen (system). The food that comes to the table is the system's response to that API call. What does this have to do with financial services? Bankers should be interested in APIs because they enable the digital experiences their customers want.

More API analogies and explanations await in episode 202!

Tech News Today 1685: Samsung's Gift Horse  

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is part of a courtroom battle between Oculus and ZeniMax Media, a videogame publisher that accused Oculus of the theft of critical technology that made its way into the finalized Oculus Rift headset. Zuckerberg is confident that Oculus products were not based in any way on ZeniMax's technology.

According to a note to developers spotted by The Guardian, prices for apps in the Apple store are going up in the UK, India, and Turkey. The price hikes will affect apps for iPhone, iPad, and Mac. Google and LG are gearing up for a big wearable announcement event on February 9, according to VentureBeat sources. Android Wear 2.0 is expected along with a duo of new smartwatches created in a partnership with LG and Google.

We'll finally have our self-flying cars by the end of this year, at least according to attention seekers at AirBus. At a tech conference in Munich an executive at the European aircraft maker says they will test a single-seat flying taxi prototype in Oregon by the end of 2017.

Today is the final day for the 6-second Vine video service. Users can snag all of their Vines from the site for posterity. The Vine app will turn into Vine Camera allowing users to continue shooting 6-second masterpieces for upload to any service they choose including Twitter.

Facebook to Roll Out Fake News Tools in Germany  

The social network plans to work with fact checkers to mark 'disputed' stories. Political journalist Torsten Riecke from Germany's business daily Handelsblatt describes concerns in Germany over fake news, and Johnny Haeusler from wired.com in Berlin tells us it might be difficult for fact checkers to separate facts, lies and opinions. Also in the programme, an ambitious project has been launched to build one of the longest power lines in the world, across India. Claudio Facchin of the Swiss engineering giant ABB tells us about the plan. A survey suggests nearly half of all working dads want less stressful careers so they can care for their children. Sam Smethers from gender equality charity the Fawcett Society argues that improving the situation for men would help parents of both sexes. Plus the BBC's Regan Morris reports from Los Angeles on women and their support for president-elect Trump. (Picture: Facebook logos. Picture credit: Getty Images.)

Behind the scenes at China's Harbin snow festival  

This week, we take you on a trip into a real-life winter wonderland. The Harbin International Snow and Ice Festival, famed for its gigantic illuminated sculptures, has officially kicked off in northern China. The biggest ice festival in the world is expected to attract one million visitors this year. Julia Sieger gives us a sneak peek. But we begin in India, where a financial and technological revolution is under way. The country is being demonetised at a furious pace, with Indians from all social backgrounds urged to open bank accounts and go fully digital. It's part of PM Narendra Modi's war on the shadow black economy. Yet critics say the pace of change is leaving many Indians behind. We also head to Indonesia, where thousands of illegal miners risk serious injury and death at the bottom of an opaque global supply chain. Every day, they dredge the seabed for tin, a vital component of smartphones and tablets. And we finish in Pakistan, which is slowly emerging from a long-term power crisis. But the after-effects of this sustained blackout are still being felt in the textile sector. Once the engine of the Pakistani economy, the textile industry is struggling to get back on its feet, faced with high energy costs and a decade lost to competitors.
