Studio N: V pátrání po vrazích Kuciaka pomohl Facebook i operátoři. Poslechněte si, po jakých stopách šli policisté

Spáchat nájemnou vraždu a zmizet bez odhalení je v čase moderních technologií mimořádně složité. Ukazuje to případ vraždy Jána Kuciaka a Martiny Kušnírové.

Povinný celibát neodmyslitelně patří k římskokatolické církvi, kněz Marek Orko Vácha si ale myslí, že by měl být dobrovolný. „Celibát má obrovský význam pro řádové kněze v klášterech, ale nejsem si úplně jistý, jestli má význam pro faráře, kteří jsou v terénu a vedou farnost,“ říká v rozhovoru pro server V čase třicátého výročí sametové revoluce se rozpovídal i o tom, jak byla za komunismu církev pokřivená a řada kněží spolupracovala s StB.

Mosuo women

The Mosuo (Chinese: 摩梭; pinyin: Mósuō) are a small ethnic group living in Yunnan and Sichuan provinces in China, close to the border with Tibet. Dubbed the 'Kingdom of Women' by the Chinese, the Mosuo population of about 50,000 live near Lugu Lake in the Tibetan Himalayas 27°42′35.30″N 100°47′4.04″E. Scholars use diverse terms and spellings to designate the Mosuo culture. Most prefer 'Mosuo' some spell it 'Moso', while a minority use neither term, but refer to them as the Na people. The Mosuo people are known as the 'Kingdom of Women' because the Na are a matrilineal society: heterosexual activity occurs only by mutual consent and mostly through the custom of the secret nocturnal 'visit'; men and women are free to have multiple partners, and to initiate or break off relationships when they please. The origin of matrilineality/matriarchal ...

Euthanasia Coaster

The Euthanasia Coaster is an art concept for a steel roller coaster designed to kill its passengers. In 2010, it was designed and made into a scale model by Julijonas Urbonas, a PhD candidate at the Royal College of Art in London. Urbonas, who has worked at an amusement park, stated that the goal of his concept roller coaster is to take lives "with elegance and euphoria". As for practical applications of his design, Urbonas mentioned "euthanasia" or "execution". John Allen, who served as president of the Philadelphia Toboggan Company, inspired Urbonas with his description of the "ultimate" roller coaster as one that "sends out 24 people and they all come back dead". Design The concept design of the layout begins with a steep-angled lift to the 510-metre (1,670 ft) (0.317 mile) top, which would take two minutes for the 24-passenger train to reach. Any passengers that wished to get off could then do so. From there, a 500-metre (1,600 ft) drop would take the train to 360 kilometres per hour (220 mph), close to its terminal velocity, before flattening out and speeding into the first of its seven slightly...
