    Just say neigh.ShutterstockThe British Horse Racing Authority has revealed a total of seven racehorses have now tested positive for morphine in post-race samples. Unremarkable perhaps to a public jaded by reports of human athletes failing drugs tests, or even seeing drug abuse as a way of sporting life.

    “Do you believe that the US-Russian relations are now at Cold War levels?” CNN’s Candy Crowley asked Dianne Feinstein on Sunday. “Yes,” replied the chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee. During the same interview, on the State of the Union program, Feinstein hinted at the problems of imposing sanctions on Moscow, even in the aftermath of the murderous downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 last week with a missile almost certainly of Russian origin. “It’s difficult, because you need Russian help in so many things,” she said to Crowley. “The P5+1, Syria, and it goes on…

    Another incident of a baby left in a hot car, this time in Moline, Illinois calls attention to continued concerns about how dangerous this is to children. Two federal agencies have joined forces to tackle what’s become the recurring tragedy of this summer: Children being left in hot cars. The U.S. Departments of Transportation and Health and Human Services held a show-and-tell Thursday about the hazards of hot cars and how quickly they can kill. “When a child’s internal temperature gets to 104 degrees, major organs begin to shutdown and when that child’s temperature…

  • Immigration Laws Should Serve People, Not Politics

    Maya Rhodan
    25 Jul 2014 | 9:01 pm
    Throughout both legal history and Judeo-Christian scripture, there has always been tension between the “letter” and the “spirit” of the law. In the gospels, Jesus often rebuked the Pharisees for focusing too much on legalism instead of grace. He famously said, “The Sabbath was made for people not people for the Sabbath.” In light of what’s been happening in our political systems, it’s clear that we need to ask: “are our laws made for people?” Or do we believe that people were made for our laws? I have worked alongside many Republicans who have helped lead the battle for…

  • Knowing Yourself: 3 Keys to Leveraging Ancient Wisdom

    “Know Thyself” The Oracle at Delphi said “Know thyself.” And that is deep and profound. It’s also a pain in the ass because as with every cliche, the difficulty is in the execution and nobody ever bothers to tell you how to do it properly. I guess they’re too busy brainstorming new fortune cookie wisdom while we sit around thinking they’re smart for coming up with it and we’re dumb for not being able to follow through. Knowing yourself is the hardest thing in the world because nobody lies to you about you more than you do. We need answers. Good answers. Ones we can achieve…
  • Gaza Sides Agree to Lull but Truce Efforts Stall

    25 Jul 2014 | 5:40 pm
    (JERUSALEM) — Israel-Hamas fighting looked headed for escalation after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry failed Friday to broker a weeklong truce as a first step toward a broader deal and Israel’s defense minister warned Israel might soon expand its Gaza ground operation “significantly.” Hours after the U.S.-led efforts stalled, the two sides agreed to a 12-hour humanitarian cease-fire to begin Saturday. However, the temporary lull was unlikely to change the trajectory of the current hostilities amid ominous signs that the Gaza war is spilling over into the West Bank. In…
  • Same-Sex Marriage Ban Struck Down for Miami Area

    25 Jul 2014 | 4:09 pm
    (MIAMI) — A Florida judge on Friday overturned the state’s ban on same-sex marriage in a ruling that applies to Miami-Dade County, agreeing with a judge in another county who made a similar ruling last week. The ruling issued by Circuit Judge Sarah Zabel mirrors the decision made earlier by Monroe County Circuit Judge Luis Garcia. Both judges found the constitutional amendment approved by Florida voters in 2008 discriminates against gay people and violates their right to equal protection under the law guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution’s 14th Amendment. “Preventing…

  • Why Seals Might Love Having More Wind Farms

    24 Jul 2014 | 10:27 am
    New research reveals that off-shore wind farms are particularly useful for seals as they appear to act like artificial reefs, drawing in large groups of fish. The study, carried out by researchers at St Andrews University in Scotland and published this month in the journal Current Biology, saw scientists track a group of seals in the North Sea using GPS devices. The purpose of the study was to look at whether man-made changes to the structural ocean environment are affecting marine predator behavior.

The action followed the Center for Biological Diversity’s rulemaking petition sent in April. The Pacific bluefin population’s historic low triggered a requirement for new regulations to better manage overfishing by April 8, 2014, but regulators thus far have declined to take any steps to help the fish. Today’s request for comments is the federal government’s first step to spur…
  • New Poll Shows Support for Carbon Tax, with Exceptions

    24 Jul 2014 | 6:01 am
    The concept of a national carbon tax is a hard sell for most people these days. According to a recent poll, only 34 percent of U.S. respondents said they would support taxing fossil fuels like oil, gas or natural gas. But support for a carbon tax changes dramatically when it comes to scenarios in which the funds are either reimbursed to taxpayers or used to fund renewable energy projects.
  • Climate warming may not drive net losses of soil carbon from tropical forests

    23 Jul 2014 | 10:16 am
    The planet's soil releases about 60 billion tons of carbon into the atmosphere each year, which is far more than that released by burning fossil fuels. This happens through a process called soil respiration. This enormous release of carbon is balanced by carbon coming into the soil system from falling leaves and other plant matter, as well as by the underground activities of plant roots.

The next day, a church member used his own welding torch to put it back. He was promptly detained and questioned for 10 hours on the charge of operating a welding business without a license. A week later, the crew came back to remove the cross. Once again, church members put it back up, now tattered and a little shorter.

The U.S.-recognized terrorist group, which has governed Gaza since 2007, has refused several attempts by international mediators to establish a cease fire since Israel began a ground invasion of the densely-populated strip on July 18.

    I read Barak Ravid’s excellent “peace process” post-mortem with a sense of deep dismay. In fairness, however, one might first note a modest cause for optimism and a preliminary caveat. Optimism, you say? Well, as far as it goes, there is at least a "Framework Document" now on the shelf (or in a Foggy Bottom safe). Perhaps, although I’m dubious, it won't just gather dust for years and effectively be relegated to the dust-bin. As for the caveat, Ravid's is but one journalist’s accounting, nor should one cheaply denigrate John Kerry, Martin Indyk and their respective staff's sweat…

    25 Jul 2014 | 2:01 pm
    Freshman Florida Congressman Curt Clawson (R) is still finding his way around the U.S. Capitol after his victory in a special election last month — and he's also apparently still figuring out that public officials of Asian ethnicities are not necessarily foreigners.Foreign Policy uncovered video from a subcommittee hearing of the House Foreign Affairs Committee — the Asia and Pacific subcommittee, on which Clawson sits — in which Clawson spoke to two high-ranking U.S. officials, Nisha Biswal of the State Department and Arun Kumar of the Commerce Department, as if they were…

    Fresh out of Comic-Con, AMC's The Walking Dead has given fans a taste of the zombie drama's upcoming season. After ending its fourth season on a cliffhanger, The Walking Dead is picking up right where it left off, as our heroes struggle to survive in the hornets' nest they've stumbled upon.The new trailer reveals that the survivors will take to the road again, heading toward Washington, D.C. in an effort to track down a cure for zombie plague — and though our heroes are forced to fight alongside some new faces, they're less than enthusiastic about it.

    Last year, Zack Snyder successfully rebooted the Superman series with Man of Steel, in which Henry Cavill donned the superhero's red and blue tights. But if you're interested in a trip to the Hollywood equivalent of Bizarro World, look no further than the trailer for The Death of Superman Lives.The documentary tells the true story behind Tim Burton's aborted Superman movie, which was slated to star none other than Nicolas Cage. The movie got far enough into production to merit a screen test; if you've ever wondered what Cage would look like flying around in tights, you can get a taste in…

    A bill that allows consumers to unlock their cellphones for use on other carriers passed its last hurdle in Congress on Friday, opening the way for it to become law once it is signed by President Obama. Senate Bill 517 overturns a January 2013 decision by the Congressional Librarian that ruled the unlocking of phones by consumers fell afoul of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). It had previously been permitted under an exception to the anti-circumvention provisions of the DMCA, which are generally aimed at cracking of digital rights management technology.To read this article in full…

Addressing the change from Archer‘s Vice drug-running theme in Season 5, creator Adam Reed said the reason was because “we ran out of cocaine!” “We treated Season 5 as a vacation,” he said. “We’re happy to be home, and we’re excited to get back…

    A model of the bubonic plague bacterium, which is known as Yersina pestis. Tim Evanson/Flcikr, CC BY-SACases of plague have been reported in the Chinese city of Yumen, where a man has died of the disease.

  • Who wants to buy a couple of warships from France to stop Russia getting them?

    Simon J Smith, Research Associate, Department of Politics, Languages &amp; International Studies at University of Bath
    25 Jul 2014 | 8:46 am
    Built in France for Russia – the Mistral class warship.EPA/Franck Dubray/Ouest FranceWhen it comes to politics, there is a generally held belief that when it is working, it is boring. Europe’s foreign policy politics routinely breaks this axiom because while it can rarely said to be working, it is always fairly predictable. The recent failure of Europe to act robustly and collectively towards Russian aggression is a case in point. As Julian Lindley-French has recently written: indeed, too many EU member-states no longer have a foreign policy at all (Britain most particularly). What is…

    John Jewell, Director of Undergraduate Studies, School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies at Cardiff University

    On we go.Ian Nicholson/PAIn the latest episode in the long-running saga that is the phone hacking affair, Dan Evans, a former journalist at the News of the World and Sunday Mirror, has received a 10 month suspended sentence after being convicted of two counts of phone hacking, one of making illegal payments to officials, and one of perverting the course of justice. Coming so soon after the conviction of Andy Coulson and the acquittal of Rebekah Brooks and others, one could be forgiven for assuming that the whole phone hacking business is now done and dusted. Not a bit of it. As Julian Petley…

    Just say neigh.ShutterstockThe British Horse Racing Authority has revealed a total of seven racehorses have now tested positive for morphine in post-race samples. Unremarkable perhaps to a public jaded by reports of human athletes failing drugs tests, or even seeing drug abuse as a way of sporting life. We in equestrianism and its bigger brother, horse racing, have a similarly jaundiced view, especially since the 2013 winner of both Badminton and Burghley – two of eventing’s three “Grand Slams” – Jonathan “Jock” Paget was suspended along with his mentor Kevin McNab following…

    Due process? Really?ShutterstockThe UK is one of the most CCTV-saturated countries in the world. Being watched and monitored is an everyday reality on British streets, allegedly increasing from one camera for every 14 people in 2008 to one for every 11 people in 2013. In other parts of the world, the spread of CCTV cameras and the data they collect is a matter of intense public debate. Just look at Germany, where services such as Google Street View are under serious scrutiny. But in the UK, the march of electronic surveillance is greeted as the obvious solution to crime – despite plenty of…

Burwell invalidating the Internal Revenue Service regulation approving subsidies for Obamacare consumers in states with federal health insurance exchanges. The law passed by Congress, Judge Thomas Griffith explained, provided for subsidies in states with state-created exchanges, but not in states with federal exchanges.

    Everything went dark and I was covered in dust and for a moment I thought the computer had exploded. Then I heard Nir screaming “mummy” but couldn’t hear Lior and couldn’t stand; it was as if my brain was disconnected from my body. I crawled to find Lior. I found her hand, grabbed it and dragged her out of rubble and broken metal from the roof. Nir was still standing in the hallway and had managed to push the door of the bedroom so that it was open a crack. I followed the light to the hallway and found him there. I hadn’t realized that my face was covered in blood pouring from my…

    The current round of fighting between Israel and Hamas will likely wind down as soon as the Israel Defense Forces are confident that the vast network of underground tunnels has been dismantled, but until then, fat chance. Paul Alster at Fox says the IDF has so far uncovered at least 28 tunnels with more than 60 access shafts, and Ben Piven at Al Jazeera makes it clear that these tunnels are used offensively. “Tunnels are just one weapon used by the resistance,” Abu Obeida, a Qassam spokesman, told Al Jazeera. “They can move from a defensive position to an offensive one in any…

It was all so different from Gaza, which seemed light years away to him. On the way, we passed the sites Hamas terrorists struck some years before: the Dizengoff commercial center, the Dolphinarium night club, Mike’s Place bar and others. When the astonishment faded from his face, he summarized it thus:…

In the “Gaucho Dance,” team members got into a crouch and sang, “This is how the gauchos walk,” and then straightened to their full height and sang, “This is how Germans walk.” The chairman of the Bundesliga, the German soccer league, said he would write to his Argentinian counterpart to assure him that “the boys” were not gloating over their 1-0 defeat of…

Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was downed following a ground-to-air missile launched by pro-Russian separatists, using equipment allegedly funded by Vladimir Putin’s regime. The implications politically are likely to be extreme for the Russians based on their care-free attitude towards the tragedy, their funding of the terrorists responsible for the act, and the invasion of the Ukraine 6 months ago - which has now served to create distress and…

    Recent research by UBS revealed that millennials (defined as people between the ages of 21 and 36) are not investing in the stock market. UBS speculates that this behaviour is the consequence of millennials having nightmares about living through the 2008 financial crisis or seeing their parents struggle through the recession. They are described as skeptical about chasing markets. The research surveyed 1,000 millennials and found that they hold an average 52 percent of their assets in cash and only 28 percent in stocks.

    In mid-June, a group of militant Islamic extremists launched a coordinated assault across northern Iraq, seizing large territories including major towns and cities. Iraqi security forces, in the face of the onslaught, were able to do very little in defense of their country. As a result, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki publicly appealed to the United States and the international community for assistance in the fight against the organization known as Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, or ISIS. The moniker ISIS derives from the group’s primary objective, which is to establish a Sunni…

    “Do you believe that the US-Russian relations are now at Cold War levels?” CNN’s Candy Crowley asked Dianne Feinstein on Sunday. “Yes,” replied the chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee. During the same interview, on the State of the Union program, Feinstein hinted at the problems of imposing sanctions on Moscow, even in the aftermath of the murderous downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 last week with a missile almost certainly of Russian origin. “It’s difficult, because you need Russian help in so many things,” she said to Crowley. “The P5+1, Syria, and it goes on…

    The big story from Vienna is not that discussions this week with Iran over its enrichment of uranium are not going well. Such a failure was virtually inevitable. The big story is who is not in town for the ill-fated proceedings, an effort to stop what many suspect is a disguised nuclear weapons program.  US Secretary of State John Kerry, British Foreign Secretary William Hague, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, and German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier are all in Vienna for talks with their Iranian counterpart.

As Garnaut noted in messages to me this month, Beijing tells the world that “we will keep going and we will win.” Shi, however, has been saying that what the Chinese really mean is, in Garnaut’s…

    Xi Jinping arrived in Seoul today on a groundbreaking trip. Analysts in Asia, where symbolism is closely watched, invest the visit with great significance. Xi, after all, is the first Chinese leader to travel to the South Korean capital before going to Pyongyang. “The message,” says John Delury of Yonsei University in Seoul, “is that if North Korea continues to keep Beijing at a distance and not work harder to keep China happy, then China will tilt towards South Korea.” The oft-quoted Delury is undoubtedly correct, and his remark suggests that China thinks it can ultimately shape…
  • Study Finds Chinese Economy a Third Smaller Than Claimed

    25 Jun 2014 | 1:19 pm
    In a report released on June 20th, the business research organization Conference Board recalculates Chinese gross domestic product going back to 1952. Economist Harry Wu estimates that China from 1978 to 2012 grew an average of 7.2 percent a year. Beijing’s National Bureau of Statistics reports 9.8 percent average annual growth during that period. Wu believes that official numbers for 1952 to 1977 are generally accurate, at least when considered over the period as a whole. China’s figures, therefore, have become less reliable over time. The discrepancy in the 1978–2012 period, which…

    Michael J. Totten
    24 Jul 2014 | 1:22 pm
    The current round of fighting between Israel and Hamas will likely wind down as soon as the Israel Defense Forces are confident that the vast network of underground tunnels has been dismantled, but until then, fat chance. Paul Alster at Fox says the IDF has so far uncovered at least 28 tunnels with more than 60 access shafts, and Ben Piven at Al Jazeera makes it clear that these tunnels are used offensively. “Tunnels are just one weapon used by the resistance,” Abu Obeida, a Qassam spokesman, told Al Jazeera. “They can move from a defensive position to an offensive one in any…

    An Israeli journalist gave his Palestinian cameraman a tour of Tel Aviv and this is what happened: On the Ayalon Highway, the highway leading to the big city, he first laid eyes upon the tall buildings, Tel Aviv’s towers, the branching road system, the bridges, the lights, the life. It was all so different from Gaza, which seemed light years away to him. On the way, we passed the sites Hamas terrorists struck some years before: the Dizengoff commercial center, the Dolphinarium night club, Mike’s Place bar and others. When the astonishment faded from his face, he summarized it thus:…
  • Going in Circles in Gaza

    Michael J. Totten

    Now that the Israelis have mounted a ground invasion of Gaza, casualties are climbing on each side. According to NPR, 20 Israelis have been killed so far along with more than 400 Palestinians. Hamas claims it kidnapped an Israeli soldier, but the Israelis say no one has been taken. I don’t know who to believe, but Hamas’ claim would be more credible if its commanders had a name and photograph of the person they say they've kidnapped. The Israelis are systematically demolishing underground tunnels leading into Israel from Gaza and are not likely to agree to a cease-fire at this point until…

    Michael J. Totten

    Hamas is losing and everyone knows it. More than 200 Palestinians have been killed so far in the current round of fighting while the number of dead Israelis amounts to a grand total of one. That’s almost certainly the reason Hamas rejected the Egypt-proposed cease-fire agreement. So far it has accomplished practically nothing. A small band of serial killers on the West Bank managed to murder more Israelis a couple of weeks ago than Hamas can manage with its entire missile arsenal now. It’s pathetic, really, and must be extraordinarily humiliating. The Middle Eastern habit of declaring…
  • Year Four: The Arab Spring Proved Everyone Wrong

    I wrote this essay for the print edition of World Affairs. It is now available online. Shortly after the Arab Spring broke out at the tail end of 2010, two narratives took hold in the West. Optimists hailed a region-wide birth of democracy, as though the Middle East and North Africa were following the path blazed in Eastern Europe during the anti-communist revolutions of 1989. Pessimists fretted that the Arab world was following Iran’s example in 1979 and replacing secular tyrants with even more repressive Islamist regimes. Both narratives turned out to be wrong, and not just because their…

    1 Jul 2014 | 8:18 am
    MOSCOW — Just as during the Cold War, when sporting competitions between the free world and the Communist camp inevitably acquired a political dimension, big sport is increasingly becoming big politics for Vladimir Putin’s Kremlin. Nowhere can this be seen more clearly than in the ongoing campaign for the presidency of FIDE, the World Chess Federation, that will be decided at the congress in Tromso, Norway, on August 11th. Two contenders—both of them Russian—are vying for the position. One is Garry Kasparov, the legendary grandmaster, the 13th world chess champion, and an eight-time…

    MOSCOW — The campaign for the 2014 Moscow legislative election began, as has become customary in Vladimir Putin’s Russia, with police raids. Last week, Russia’s Investigative Committee charged Konstantin Yankauskas, a Moscow municipal legislator and a candidate for the City Duma in the September 14th vote, and fellow election contender Nikolai Lyaskin, with “fraud,” conducting searches in their apartments. Lyaskin was released under prosecutorial recognizance; Yankauskas was sentenced to house arrest and will be unable to file his nomination papers at the electoral commission. Both…

    ST. PETERSBURG, Russia — This week, the Kremlin-appointed governor of St. Petersburg, former KGB officer Georgy Poltavchenko, became the latest in a string of Russian regional leaders who formally “resigned” their posts in order to seek early reelection on September 14th. Of the 30 gubernatorial polls to be held this fall, 19 will be early elections called because of the resignation or dismissal of the incumbents. The Kremlin and its regional henchmen want to capitalize on the temporary spike in support for the regime after the annexation of Crimea, and ensure reelection before approval…

    MOSCOW — Vladimir Putin may have suffered a setback with the successful presidential election in Ukraine, but he can claim a significant consolation prize. Elections to the European Parliament, held simultaneously with Ukraine’s presidential vote, resulted in a surge of far-right and nationalist parties—many of which are vocal allies of Putin’s Kremlin. In France, in a political earthquake for the country, the far-right National Front (FN), led by Marine Le Pen, topped the poll with 24.9 percent. Le Pen has been outspoken in her support for the Kremlin—a feeling reciprocated by…

    The 70th anniversary of Joseph Stalin’s deportation of the Crimean Tatars—when some 200,000 people were rounded up and expelled from their homeland in the space of two days, between May 18 and 20, 1944—was a much more subdued occasion in Crimea than previous memorial dates. For the first time in years, the Crimean Tatars could not hold their traditional rally in the central square of Simferopol and had to gather on the outskirts of the capital after the Kremlin-installed authorities banned most public meetings. Worse still, the Crimean Tatars marked the date in the absence of their…

    When Vladimir Putin’s proxies shot down a Malaysian Airlines jet with close to 300 passengers over eastern Ukraine on July 17th, I was shocked. But I wasn’t shocked on July 15th, when the former head of the Ukrainian General Staff stated that 330 Ukrainian soldiers had died in the course of Kyiv’s anti-terrorist operation in eastern Ukraine, while the press liaison of the National Security and Defense Council said the correct number was 258. Both numbers were immediately wrong, as some 10 soldiers were killed that day. The sad fact is that I’m getting used to Putin’s killing spree.

    Everything, according to some. Many things, according to others. Nothing, according to many Russians. Back in 2004, two US academics, Andrei Shleifer and Daniel Treisman, wrote a controversial piece for Foreign Affairs in which they argued that statistics proved that Russia was a “normal country.” Since they focused on mostly economic parameters, such as GDP, income distribution, and the like, they had a point. What Shleifer and Treisman overlooked was the politics. Do “normal” countries normally invade their neighbors, lop off bits and pieces of foreign territory, support…

    Alexander J. Motyl
    10 Jul 2014 | 10:15 am
    According to the conventional wisdom, Vladimir Putin and his Western supporters propagate a uniform message throughout the world. At its most extreme, this view sees Russia as having a formidable propaganda machine that is running roughshod over the Western media and public.   In fact, Putin and his supporters and apologists often disagree. One reason may be that the machine just isn’t as formidable as it’s made out to be. Another may be that the Kremlin’s supporters make mistakes when interpreting or anticipating the frequently contradictory or incomprehensible statements of the…

    3 Jul 2014 | 5:02 am
    Excuse the lurid title, but it’s only a variant of a headline that appeared many years ago in a New York tabloid: “Mother Dies, as Baby Coos.” I can’t speak for the accuracy of that headline, but today’s variant is, alas, all too valid. Because the fact is that Ukrainian soldiers are dying at the hands of Vladimir Putin’s terrorist hirelings as European states—and the European Union—are engaging the Kremlin with baby talk and diplo-babble. Twenty-seven Ukrainian soldiers were killed by the terrorists during the cease-fire declared by President Petro Poroshenko more than a week…

    Ukrainians have taken to fighting back against Russia’s fascistoid dictator, Vladimir Putin, with obscenities and humor. A Ukrainian psychiatrist I recently saw on Ukrainian TV calls such behavior psychologically healthy during periods of “extreme stress”—an understatement for the savage war Putin and his terrorists have unleashed against Ukraine. The American social scientist James C. Scott might call both obscenity and humor “weapons of the weak.” Whatever you call them, they’re spreading like wildfire across Ukraine. The case in point is a song or, more exactly, a chant that…

  • The fight for transit among Ontario parties

    29 May 2014 | 7:20 pm
    It’s no secret that Toronto has one of the worst transit systems in North America. The only way to travel from the Airport to Downtown Toronto is either by taxi or shuttle bus, a method of travel straight from the 1930s. However, the results of the upcoming June 12 election is bound to change that. Toronto is now constructing more transit systems than any other city in North America and the construction will continue for many years down the road. The one problem is that completing a transit plan takes decades, but an election cycle swings around every couple of years. What…

    1) “Is the American Political System the latest Bubble?” The best way to look at this, I think, is that there’s a spectrum of default severities. At one end, you have the outright repudiation of sovereign debt, a la Ecuador in 2008; at the other end, you have the sequester, which involves telling a large number of government employees that the resources which were promised them will not, in fact, arrive. Right now, we’ve already reached the point at which the government has broken very important promises indeed: We promised to pay hundreds of thousands of government employees…
