Turkish Hip-Hop Translation: Roadside Picnic

I recently interviewed a Turkish band who introduced me to the group 'Roadside Picnic', who make fantastic, alluring left-field hip-hop. I've been hopelessly hooked on this live version of what I presume is a new song from the duo. It's titled "Bir Ustamızın Havası", and I'd love to know what the song is talking about. [more inside]

Voice-activate voice memo app for iOS?

I'm using my iPod's built in voice memo tool. It's ok, but I'd like one that is entirely voice activated. That is, I don't want to have to control start, stop and other features by touching the screen. Is there one that will respond to simple voice commands? If not, how about for Android OS?

Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing systems

My organization is going to begin conducting larger telephone surveys than we have in the past, and needs CATI software to facilitate this. We need something that will track contact attempts, outcomes, etc. as well as allow the interviewer to read items and enter responses. Google tells me there are a lot of options out there, but I can't find anything that compares them by price, features, user satisfactions, etc. Have any of you used a system you particularly like (or one you hated)? Are there specific features you think I should be filtering on? [more inside]

How did Fritz Zwicky appear in Cosmos?

In the last episode of the new Cosmos series, (someone portraying) Fritz Zwicky appears briefly, to sort of stare and blink and then make a gesture like this. He died in 1974. What is the source of this footage? Is it an actor (with an oddly non-speaking role, and no acknowledgment yet on IMDB), some sort of CGI magic from photos, or archival footage? Our household is unreasonably curious about this.
