This Week

1. Quote of the Week
Karen Lopez: To bring others up to speed, Fabian is using an academic taxonomy for data modeling terms. It's valid. It's popular in research. It's not used in any major data modeling tool, nor in many practitioner resources. I have been using the industry vernaculars in my posts and here. Part of the debate that Fabian is having is because he does not tolerate the industry terms, so he chooses to attack others who use the mainstream terms. He believes they are "wrong" instead of "alternative". So that's part of the pain we have in debating his positions. I'm bilingual, but I choose to use just one set in my writings.

Fabian Pascal: Karen, bollocks. See, I can use non-academic terms too.

2. To Laugh or Cry?

3. Online Debunkings

4. Of Interest Elsewhere

5. And now for something completely different

"The PostWest"

Arabs massacring each other best way to islamize West (or Morality is not a suicide pact)

The Only Globally Acceptable Racism (or Fuck the joos)
Palestine: the next IS (or Let's give them a state)
Upside down and backwards
US-led strikes said to kill 15 civilians in northeast Syria (Israel at least defends itself)
Pinch me!
