Higgs Boson Party failed!

Gestern hat CERN etwas Besonderes angekündigt: Higgs within reach: Our understanding of the universe is about to change…

Ich hatte eine Idee - eine Higgs Boson Party zu Hause zu machen. Ich kam nach Hause vor 18:00 Uhr und der Plan sah so aus:
1) Bier kaufen
2) Bier trinken
3) Video über Higgs Boson schauen - Was ist eigentlich das Higgs Boson?
4) Bier trinken
5) Diskussion über - Die Perzeption der Gravitation nach Entdeckung des Higgs Bosons
6) Bier trinken
7) Diskussion über - Was jetzt mit dem All?
8) Bier trinken
9) Diskussion über - Mein Leben nach dem vierten Juli 2012
10) Bier trinken ...

Salim und Ich gingen in die Billa um Bier zu kaufen. Ich legte die Dosen in unseren Kühlschrank und wartete auf Salim und dann ...

... war ich so müde, dass ich um 20:30 eingeschlafen bin. Erst heute Morgen um 7:00 bin ich aufgewacht! Die Higgs Boson Party hat nicht stattgefunden ...

First Hawaii, then Oregon

Why? Hawaii - the international conference on MR (ISMRM) happened to be in Honolulu in 2017. Oregon - to counterbalance volcanic islands with sunny beaches and volcanic mountain with snow.

Part One: No Glamping in Hawaiian Islands

Island One: Kauai

After comfy 24-hour economy flights with Eva and Fabian, and just as I started to watch Moana, we landed in Lihue (Kauai). I assembled with Pedro, we took a rental car and quickly found our room in cosy Kauai Palms Hotel. For lunch next day we met Andrea in Kapaa and together we headed to see Wailua Falls, not far from Lihue. We left Andrea in Kapaa later that day and for our next night we were going to camp at Koke'e State Park Campground (thanks Evka for help with fixing my tent!). The night was very cold, roosters were loud and views from Kalalau Lookout were astonishing! It was time to warm up and see some beach so we decided to get a nice cup of coffee and visit a beach with restricted access for rental cars - Barking Sands Beach in 

Yamaha S08 - sticky keys repair

My keyboard Yamaha S08 suffered from several "sticky keys" disease already a year, perhaps more. That saying, I am pretty bad piano player. However, I like to have my devices fully functional for any cases.
I have found a very helpful guide, but with no photos. I made some for better visualization of the repair.
First, I unfastened all screws from both sides:

Second, I unfastened all screws from a wooden base plate which were holding the part with electronics.

Then I unfastened the golden screws holding the whole keyboard to the wood. The keyboard was now accessible from both sides.

The last step is described in the following video. It was just removing the sticky keys and reinserting them without a metal spring coming inside. The end of the metal spring has been left outside of the key:

So far it works well!

Inspiring music in Casey Neistat's vlogs

After watching a few vlogs by Casey Neistat on Youtube, I couldn't help notice the well-chosen music in the background. Particularly music by one artist named Julian Avila. Here is his music:
Inspired, I took several months old videos I shot on GoPro Hero 2 when I was biking to Kahlenberg in the rain. After a few hours and two whiskeys, this came from my computer:
