The chains we make for ourselves are the strongest chains of all.

If it was made off-site how long did she have to wait for it to be delivered and fitted? I assume her milled down tooth was scanned at the dentist and the scanned data sent out for manufacture. No temporary crown, so how long was she waiting with a 'red raw stump' until her crown could be finally fitted?
If you wanted to get good air flow through a nose, you'd make (evolve) it to be short with wide nostrils.
Is it possisble that the larger male nose is intended partly for sexual signalling. It sounds fanciful to modern minds, but consider prehistoric hunter-gatherers grouped together in the middle of winter. They'd be wrapped up in identical looking thick furs with long untidy hair and the only distinguishing features would be their grimy faces. Eyebrows, mouths and chins (in general) show sex related differences in appearance, so why not noses too?
I've been using gmail for about 7 years and used that account to sign in to Android for 3 years (2 x HTC phones and now a Nexus 4) and have that account as my google wallet. I've never had any spam from Google. I use AdBlock on my browser and on my Android phone. Is any of this significant or useful to you? You did say it was an Android phone from China?
I can understand your thinking behind that easy put down, but I'm sure he's right. If you consider how this will probably be used by children and teachers, it will be like the teaching of 'computing' using Word and Excel to teach children 'how computers work'. You don't teach someone how a car works by showing them how to drive it around a quiet urban backstreet.
It will be up to the government to decide if this substance is allowed to be sold to the public. The drinks industry is very wealthy and gives money to the government and also pays lots of taxes and excise duty to the government. Hence, the government will not allow this 'alcohol replacement' to be sold.
"... login more seamlessly across devices (Android)."
I've always had seamless and permanent 'login' on my Android phone and tablet. Press Feedly icon -> get Feedly. On my PC browsers, I've set Firefox to always remember the appropriate cookies and never had to login again after that. (I have the Feedly add-on button).
This was about having the user give default permission for Feedly to contact the people in their G+ circles, presumably so that Feedly could spam them with "Your friend is using Feedly - so should you." messages.
"Effectively the company is giving away something valuable (a stake in itself) and getting nothing in return, .."
They could have given cash (which is valuable), but this way has advantages for the employee/director.
They do get something in return, they get the services of the employee/director, which must be of value to the company or they wouldn't keep them in employment/appointment.
If the company really does value the ownership of its own shares, it can simply buy them in the open market and run accountancy methods to turn this to its advantage.
The entire point of this process is to reduce the amount of tax paid by the employee/director and the company. It has nothing to do with 'giving people a stake in the company'. If people wanted that, they'd buy shares. It's not 'ordinary workers' who are given these deals, it's directors and high level managers.
