Re: European maps on social issues

Not a map this time but interesting report nonetheless

https://science.sciencemag.org/conte...cience.aau8712

Civic honesty is essential to social capital and economic development, but is often in conflict with material self-interest. We examine the trade-off between honesty and self-interest using field experiments in 355 cities spanning 40 countries around the globe. We turned in over 17,000 lost wallets with varying amounts of money at public and private institutions, and measured whether recipients contacted the owner to return the wallets. In virtually all countries citizens were more likely to return wallets that contained more money. Both non-experts and professional economists were unable to predict this result. Additional data suggest our main findings can be explained by a combination of altruistic concerns and an aversion to viewing oneself as a thief, which increase with the material benefits of dishonesty.



Share of wallets reported in the NoMoney and Money condition by country.
Left hand side: Share of wallets reported in treatments NoMoney (US $0) and Money (US $13.45) by country. The amount of money in the wallet is adjusted according to each country’s purchasing power. Right hand side: Average difference between treatment Money and NoMoney across quartiles based on absolute response rates in the NoMoney condition. Error bars represent standard errors of the mean.




Reporting rates as a function of monetary stakes.
Share of wallets reported in the No-Money (US $0) Money (US $13.45), and Big-Money (US $94.15) conditions.

Basketball is the national sport of Greece since the 80s. After the basketball boom from the Nick Gallis era Greeks have managed to sustain a high level and also producing many top coaches, while after the 2004 Euro football miracle somehow everything went downhill. Despite football being more popular to watch, still more people play basketball.

Re: European maps on social issues

It's very difficult to determine really. But if they go by what people are practicing then it would invlove how many clubs there are registered, how many people take part of clubs activity etc.

Another option would be to look at how many people take part of the competitions (amateur or professional), but I suspect it's not the case, otherwise running/jogging would top football, no?

And then the TV ratings plus ticket sales. But this one is a slippery road because if they don't show gymnastics on TV how would it get a rating. And if one sports event is on a big arena while the other one isn't, is it fair to compare the ticket sales..

I wasn't even aware that our one-man voice-over system is so weird and unique until maybe a few years ago And to be honest I prefer it over dubbing which is completely ridiculous as you can't hear the actors's voices at all.

I don't think you can find voice-overs in Polish cinemas anymore. Kids/animated movies are available with dubbing and everything else is with subtitles. That 'weird' Polish voice-over is now only available on TV

Indeed. Would like to know the criteria for this map. Football is the most popular sport in Greece and in Bosnia as well. Probably in Russia too.

I can vouch for that. I was at a Polish household last week

Yes, that's it I don't think I had ever heard something as bizarre before that. I don't think it's possible to get used to it unless you've lived with it all your life. And yeah, from what I heard, the Poles really do love it. I find it completely incomprehensible.

I don't know if it's actually worse than Ukrainian TV, though. They'd have Russian voice-over (with at least several people doing the job, so it was more like dubbing), but the sound was a couple of seconds delayed, so you'd get to hear some of the original as well. And then there were subtitles in Ukrainian on top of that. After a few minutes it was enough to make your head start spinning.

I watched that and he sounds quite normal to me. I haven't seen the movie though, neither in English nor in my mother tongue.

I guess it's just a matter of taste or you may be influenced by having heard Hanks speaking in his native English. Consequently, any dubbing attempt automatically involves the risk of sounding weird.
