    Teens are taking to social media with the #dontjudgechallenge to make a point that it’s not what’s on the outside that counts, but the inside. However, instead of making a bold statement, they’re making themselves look like fools. This is an example of failing education systems that don’t teach students the difference between interpreting stereotypes and playing into them. By augmenting a false reality with makeup and unrealistic toilet paper in their nostrils, these misguided youth are ridiculing people with real diseases. What’s more, reading through the…

    30 Jun 2015 | 4:06 pm
    UNESCO World Heritage delegates recently snorkelled on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, thousands of coral reefs, which stretch over 1,200 miles off the northeast coast. Surrounded by manta rays, dolphins and reef sharks, their mission was to check the health of the world’s largest living ecosystem, which brings in billions of dollars a year in tourism. Some coral has been badly damaged and animal species, including dugong and large green turtles, are threatened. UNESCO will say on Wednesday whether it will place the reef on a list of endangered World Heritage sites, a move the Australian…

    The financial crisis in Greece has upended the lives — and livelihoods — of residents of the Mediterranean nation. The shutdown of the banking system has resulted in long lines at ATMs to withdraw a daily maximum of just 60 euros, about $67. Citizens have stockpiled food and fuel, leading to empty shelves at grocery stores and crowded gas stations. Business leaders have warned that shortages of crucial medicines could be next.Read full article >>

  • Child Labor in America 100 Years Ago (28 photos)

    1 Jul 2015 | 11:28 am
    At the start of the 20th century, labor in America was in short supply, and laws concerning the employment of children were rarely enforced or nonexistent. While Americans at the time supported the role of children working on family farms, there was little awareness of the other forms of labor being undertaken by young hands. In 1908, photographer Lewis Hine was employed by the newly-founded National Child Labor Committee (NCLC) to document child laborers and their workplaces nationwide. His well-made portraits of young miners, mill workers, cotton pickers, cigar rollers, newsboys, pin boys,…
  • Tinder Dry: An Early Start to Wildfire Season in the West (25 photos)

    30 Jun 2015 | 11:03 am
    Wildfires have already burned more than 1.6 million acres in Alaska this season, and blazes in Washington, Oregon, and bone-dry California have scorched thousands more, taking a number of houses and other structures with them. The fires are widespread, but have largely been contained so far. A very dry winter, low levels of snowpack, and a years-long drought in the West all point to a very active fire season in 2015, and there are months of hotter and drier weather yet to go. The images below are from just the past several weeks, and include photos from Wenatchee, Washington, where about 25…

    The health of the largest ecosystem on Earth is in danger. On Wednesday, UNESCO World Heritage delegates will announce whether they will place the Great Barrier Reef on a list of endangered World Heritage sites—a move the Australian government wishes to avoid. The 1,200-mile-long reef brings in billions of tourism dollars every year. Continued concerns about coastal development, particularly coal mining in Queensland, have renewed efforts to protect the reef. Some coral has been badly damaged and animal species, including dugong and large green turtles, are being threatened. According…

    Guest: Akhil Reed Amar [From the Radio Times archive] How did Abraham Lincoln’s midwestern roots influence his views on slavery and secession? Does it matter that all of today’s Supreme Court justices were educated in the northeast? Legal scholar AKHIL REED AMAR says regionalism is central to our nation’s history. In his new book The Law of the Land: A Grand Tour of Our Constitutional Republic, Amar looks at how geography and federalism have shaped our U.S. laws and justice from the Civil War to today.

  • Greece votes No – now Syriza must clarify what that really means

    Sofia Vasilopoulou, Lecturer, Department of Politics at University of York
    5 Jul 2015 | 2:29 pm
    No voters celebrate but many questions remain. EPA/Yannis KolesididWith most of the votes counted, more than 60% of Greeks have said no to the bailout terms set by the country’s international creditors. Following this resounding rejection, prime minister Alexis Tsipras now has a clear mandate from the Greek people to renegotiate the terms and conditions of the agreement with the IMF and its EU partners. The referendum presented Greek citizens with a dilemma. On one hand, voting Yes would mean conceding to further austerity and siding with precisely those political forces that are perceived…

AAP/Alan Porritt“If you ask the Australian people whether you think a child has a right to have a mother and a father, 75% or more will say that is right. If you ask individuals whether a mother is the most important nurturing relationship a child can have, over 90% of mothers say the same.

Hollywood’s efforts to win political clout have always stretched across the country, from glitzy campaign fundraisers in Beverly Hills to cocktail parties with power brokers in Washington. Last year, the film industry staked out another zone of influence: U.S. embassies. Its lobbying arm paid to renovate screening rooms in at least four overseas outposts, hoping the new theaters would help ambassadors and their foreign guests “keep U.S. cultural interests top of mind,” according to an internal email.

He honored and thanked the men and women of the U.S. armed forces, noting that he invited several hundred of them and their families to the White House’s backyard barbecue.

In fact, it might even help rebuild the Reagan coalition. That’s because research and polling have shown the negative effects and unpopularity of increased immigration among all races, including Hispanics, and among people…

The deal from the International Monetary Fund, European Union, and the European Central Bank would have come in exchange for tax increases and economic reform in Greece. The nation missed its Tuesday deadline to make a $1.8 billion loan payment to the…

The trio start to sing “Happy Birthday”, but the friends’ childlike voices trail off as Winehouse’s voice—like “a 65-year-old jazz singer”, as her producer Salaam Remi will later put itfills the air. Already she possesses a talent that can silence a room. At a…

    My Madeleine: on long, hot road trips to the coast, Dominique Botha’s family found respite in an Afrikaans picnic From INTELLIGENT LIFE magazine, July/August 2015 ONCE A YEAR, after my father put the maize crop in, my mother took the road map out and we headed south for a thousand kilometres through the desert that separated our farm from the sea. My brothers and I lay on mattresses in the back of the pickup while Pa drove and Ma admired the countryside. Towns clung like beehives to dry riverbeds.

    Short Read: for her pick of the exhibitions, Olivia Weinberg recommends an immersive show in which musicians break the silence at London’s National Gallery From INTELLIGENT LIFE magazine, July/August 2015 In most museums and galleries, sound is pooh-poohed. The ping of a mobile phone brings a scowl; a mere giggle can prompt a prod from the security guard. The only sound that is welcome is the sound of silence. So the National Gallery is about to break a mould. “We want to give people a punch in the stomach,” says Minna Moore Ede, curator of “Soundscapes”, an immersive show that sets…

Ed Smith thinks they might have a point From INTELLIGENT LIFE magazine, July/August 2015TEN YEARS AGO, Andrew Flintoff was tasting the ultimate high for an English cricketer: wrestling the Ashes back from Australia. He was a buccaneering batsman, a formidable bowler, a good guy to have on your side, and a more complex character than he seemed.

    More and more decisions, from the music business to the sports field, are being delegated to data. But where does that leave our intuition? Ian Leslie figures it out From INTELLIGENT LIFE magazine, July/August 2015 JOHN HAMMOND WAS a boy of ten when he fell in love with the new music called jazz. Rather than heading home after school to his family’s mansion on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, he would jump on an uptown bus and deposit himself, 30 blocks away, in a different world. The world he left behind was monied, white, sedate; the one to which he travelled was poor, black and popping…

The slick seven-minute short film is co-directed by Rihanna and has already received 12 million views in its first few days.

I was a vendor for Baha Mar too and I have been waiting on my services to be paid. They have avoided me; ducking and dodging paying the bill. This is the same way they absconded in negotiations with the Deputy Prime Minister on Corridor 7. It was so bad I had to write-off all the debt and shed staff as a result. I also see following the Delaware court proceedings many other Bahamian companies are also not paid by Baha Mar. The company I…

  • The Case for Eating Small Fish

    John Donohue
    3 Jul 2015 | 10:00 am
    From the beginning of time, through the artist Bruegel’s day, and until relatively recently, little fish had only big fish to fear. Since the middle of the twentieth century, however, some little fish—forage fish, to be precise—have faced radically increased threats from humans, and, by extension, from the pigs and chickens that the fish are increasingly being fed to. Forage fish are now threatened worldwide, which has potentially troubling implications for the entire food chain. In conservation circles, the suggestion lately is that encouraging consumers to eat small fish might,…

    Finland wanted to hold the OSCE’s annual session on the 40th anniversary of the founding CSCE (Committee on Security and Co-operation in Europe, now the Organisation for Co-operation in Europe or OSCE) conference in Helsinki. That conference heralded a new era of détente in Europe, as Moscow started the gradual process of engaging with the west and eventually opening up. In coming to Finland for the 2015 meeting, the OSCE hoped to recreate the so-called ‘Spirit of Helsinki’—the spirit which laid the groundwork for the winding down of tensions during the Cold War—around the…

  • The Role of Indias Informal Economy

    5 Nov 2014 | 4:36 am
    India is probably unique in the world in the size and significance of her informal economy. While the concept has been much criticised by academics1,‘informality’ refers to the vital reality of unregistered activity that is not regulated either by the state or necessarily according to its law. It is well understood by the public and thus has sufficient conceptual traction to have needed the attention of planners. In this paper, using the insights of recent research2, I will cover its roles and their implications for policy and planning. Structure and relations First, the informal economy…

    Flying is the safest mode of transport. You are more likely to die on your way to the airport than on a plane. Crossing the road is more dangerous than flying. More people get struck by lightning every year than die in plane crashes. There is a negligible 1 in 11 million chance that you will die in a plane crash. Et cetera. And yet almost thirty percent of us are afraid of flying. Call us irrational if you want, but include within these irrationals the thirty percent of passengers who a fraction of a second before evaporating in a plane crash have time to think “I knew it”.

    Autonomous cars are slowly but surely making their way onto the world’s roads, with several car manufacturers testing and recalibrating self-driving car technologies. The manufacturers claim that road accidents can be reduced if human error is removed from the equation, but how do the cars ‘know’ what to do in particular driving situations? There are three functions that autonomous cars require to replace the need for drivers. First is the ability to know and understand where it is located in relation to other cars or objects around it; second is the faculty to figure out the…

    With the recent weeklong extension of the deadline for a final nuclear deal, Iran’s track record of incrementalism and obfuscation toward the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has never been so instructive. Indeed, recent revelations suggesting an increase in Tehran’s low-enriched uranium stockpile are merely the latest example of its incremental transgressions. As international negotiators go into overtime seeking to transform a framework into a final accord, they may discover that the history of IAEA dealings with Iran is more useful in helping draft, implement, and enforce any…

But little more than a week after announcing that she would be honored at the university’s commencement ceremonies, Brandeis rescinded its offer owing to Hirsi Ali’s record of bluntly criticizing Islamic oppression. “We cannot overlook that certain of her past statements are inconsistent with Brandeis University’s…

    Turkey is planning an invasion of Syria—not to fight ISIS, but to fight the Kurds. “We will never allow the establishment of a state on our southern border in the north of Syria,” President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday. “We will continue our fight in that respect whatever the cost may be.” He wants a buffer zone along the Turkish border 30 kilometers deep into Syria in an area that the Kurds are poised to take back from ISIS. As always, the Turkish government fears the Kurds more than anything else. An independent Syrian Kurdistan could encourage the people of Turkish…

    Assassins killed Hisham Barakat, Egypt’s Prosecutor General, with a massive explosion that targeted his convoy in Cairo. ISIS’ Egyptian branch, the so-called State of Sinai, is taking credit for the hit. Barakat is part of a gangster regime that sentences people to death for their political affiliation, so one might say that what comes around goes around, but if the alternative to Egypt’s military dictatorship is a “state” that beheads journalists and aid workers and crucifies children as ISIS does in Syria, the government is spectacularly unlikely to fall.

  • Fiasco for China’s Allies in Hong Kong

    Gordon G. Chang
    25 Jun 2015 | 1:37 pm
    On Tuesday, Hong Kong’s wealthiest businessman, Li Ka-shing, said he was “very disappointed” over the Hong Kong government’s failure to enact its reform package for the 2017 election of the chief executive, the city’s top political official. When asked who was responsible for what is now widely called a fiasco, Li ducked the question. “Everyone in Hong Kong is discussing this,” he said. He’s right. Just about everybody in Hong Kong is talking about the events that unfolded last Thursday in Legco, as the city’s Legislative Council is known. The legislators, after a 20-month…

    Thursday, Beijing disclosed the trial, plea, and sentencing of Zhou Yongkang, once the country’s security czar and now the highest official to be prosecuted since Maoist times. The reviled Zhou received a life term for taking bribes, disclosing state secrets, and abusing power. He was also deprived of political rights for life and forfeited assets. Zhou, according to state media, admitted his crimes and will not appeal. “The basic facts are clear,” he said according to the official Xinhua News Agency. “I plead guilty and repent my wrongdoing.” “Zhou’s trial was a symbol of the…
  • China and US Cyber Security

    Gordon G. Chang
    9 Jun 2015 | 7:10 am
    From December through April, hackers exfiltrated personal data on almost 4.2 million US federal employees and contractors. The attacks, on the network of the Office of Personnel Management, appear to be an attempt, as the Washington Post reported, to build a database on Americans, especially those in sensitive positions. This conclusion looks correct: the same party that carried out the OPM hacks may be behind attacks last year on the health insurers Anthem and Premera Blue Cross. The Post quotes US government officials, speaking anonymously, blaming the Chinese. Rich Barger of ThreatConnect,…
  • South Korea Plays China Against America

    Gordon G. Chang
    3 Jun 2015 | 7:02 am
    Uriminzokkiri, the state-controlled North Korean website, recently criticized South Korean President Park Geun-hye for planning to go to Washington in the middle of this month instead of commemorating the 15th anniversary of the inter-Korean summit, which falls on June 15th. Park is scheduled to meet President Obama on June 16th. “Why does she plan to visit the US, the prime enemy that divided the two Koreas?” Uriminzokkiri asked. “This shows the repetition of Park’s bad habit for making overseas escape.” There was never much possibility of a joint celebration of the now-maligned…

    On Sunday, Gloria Steinem, two Nobel Peace laureates, and 27 other women crossed the Demilitarized Zone from North Korea into South Korea in an attempt to bring peace to the long-divided and troubled peninsula. “We have received an enormous amount of support,” said Steinem, the 81-year-old women’s rights activist, on her arrival in the South. It is also true that she and her group, WomenCrossDMZ, also faced a chorus of sharp criticisms. Much of the criticism centered on Steinem and the others not confronting the North Korean leadership over the horrific plight of women in that miserable…

    I reviewed Ayaan Hirsi Ali's new book, Heretic, for this month's issue of Commentary magazine. Here's the first part. In April of last year, Brandeis University offered Ayaan Hirsi Ali an honorary degree for her tireless campaigning for women’s rights in the Muslim world. But little more than a week after announcing that she would be honored at the university’s commencement ceremonies, Brandeis rescinded its offer owing to Hirsi Ali’s record of bluntly criticizing Islamic oppression. “We cannot overlook that certain of her past statements are inconsistent with Brandeis University’s…
  • Turkey Plans an Invasion of Syria

    Michael J. Totten
    30 Jun 2015 | 10:31 am
    Turkey is planning an invasion of Syria—not to fight ISIS, but to fight the Kurds. “We will never allow the establishment of a state on our southern border in the north of Syria,” President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday. “We will continue our fight in that respect whatever the cost may be.” He wants a buffer zone along the Turkish border 30 kilometers deep into Syria in an area that the Kurds are poised to take back from ISIS. As always, the Turkish government fears the Kurds more than anything else. An independent Syrian Kurdistan could encourage the people of Turkish…
  • ISIS Whacks Egypt’s Chief Prosecutor

    Michael J. Totten
    29 Jun 2015 | 9:21 am
    Assassins killed Hisham Barakat, Egypt’s Prosecutor General, with a massive explosion that targeted his convoy in Cairo. ISIS’ Egyptian branch, the so-called State of Sinai, is taking credit for the hit. Barakat is part of a gangster regime that sentences people to death for their political affiliation, so one might say that what comes around goes around, but if the alternative to Egypt’s military dictatorship is a “state” that beheads journalists and aid workers and crucifies children as ISIS does in Syria, the government is spectacularly unlikely to fall. Egypt is an emergency…
  • The Background of a Lynching

    Michael J. Totten
    25 Jun 2015 | 4:27 pm
    Earlier this week, on the Golan Heights, an enraged mob assaulted an ambulance and attacked two wounded men inside with rocks, clubs, and chains, killing one and seriously wounding another. The ambulance was Israeli. The wounded men were Arab fighters from Syria. The assailants were also Arabs, though they were Druze rather than Muslims. Several readers have emailed and asked me to explain this, so I assume others are also scratching their heads. I don’t have all the answers. What kind of person attacks an ambulance? I can easily imagine it’s someone who is steeped in some real political…
  • Turkey Chooses ISIS Over the Kurds

    Michael J. Totten
    24 Jun 2015 | 1:49 pm
    Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is furious that the Kurds in Syria are advancing against ISIS. Ponder the ramifications of that sentence. Turkey is a member of NATO. On paper, at least, it’s one of America’s greatest allies. ISIS, meanwhile, is the world’s most deranged army of psychopaths. Even Al Qaeda disowns it. The Kurds, though, are America’s most reliable allies in the Middle East alongside the Israelis. So our nominal ally thinks it’s a problem when one of our real allies makes gains against the most vicious terrorist army on the planet. We’ve been arguing…

    Alexander J. Motyl
    2 Jul 2015 | 3:06 pm
    Having just lauded Kennan Institute Director Matthew Rojansky and two colleagues for a fine piece on Ukraine’s relationship with the United States, I hate to change my tune and criticize him for a subsequent article co-written with a Ukrainian academic, but their views on the “new Ukrainian exceptionalism” are so divorced from reality as to be mystifying. Rojansky and Mykhailo Minakov, associate professor in philosophy and religious studies at Kyiv’s prestigious Mohyla Academy, begin their piece by paying due respect to Ukraine’s “struggle not only for its sovereignty, but for its…

    The most striking thing about Lviv, Kyiv, and a number of small towns and villages I’ve recently visited is their normalcy. Walk down the streets or dirt roads and you’d never think Ukraine’s economy is depressed and that the country is at war. A village church I visit is full of people dressed in their Sunday best. Lviv’s cafes are packed. Kyiv’s main drag, the Khreshchatyk, is as fashionable as before Russia’s onslaught. But that’s just the outward appearance. Talk to people and their current or impending economic travails—inflation, stagnant wages, corruption, and the…

    When three influential American Russia experts call for a substantive US-Ukrainian strategic partnership, it’s time to listen. Matthew Rojansky, director of Washington’s prestigious Kennan Institute at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, Thomas E. Graham, former senior director for Russia on the National Security Council staff and currently with Kissinger Associates, and Michael Kofman, a public policy scholar at Kennan, recently wrote an important op-ed in which they criticized the “U.S.-Ukraine strategic partnership” for “lack[ing] both strategy and…
  • Should Kyiv Blockade the Donbas Enclave?

    Alexander J. Motyl
    18 Jun 2015 | 10:52 am
    Ever since the Poroshenko Bloc’s leader, Yuri Lutsenko, stated that the “President of Ukraine believes the cancerous tumor should be subjected to a blockade,” Ukrainians have been heatedly debating whether Kyiv should sever all ties with the Russian-occupied Donbas enclave. The argument for a blockade, which would entail a total cutoff of economic relations as well as deliveries of electricity, gas, and water, is straightforwardly strategic. Ukraine is at war with Russia and its puppets. The Kremlin started the war and seems to have no intention to end it. Putin’s puppets engage in…
  • On Donbas Autonomy—Again

    Alexander J. Motyl
    12 Jun 2015 | 10:18 am
    Foreign policymakers and analysts intone “autonomy” for the Russian-occupied Donbas enclave with tedious regularity, almost as if they were in possession of some magic formula. One of the latest to join the chorus was NATO General Secretary Jens Stoltenberg. In fact, invocation of autonomy is at best an evasion, at worst meaningless. For starters, the Donbas, like Crimea, effectively enjoyed vast autonomy since Ukraine’s independence in 1991. Local political elites—their latest manifestation was Viktor Yanukovych’s Party of Regions—ruled Luhansk and Donetsk provinces in cahoots…

    America was created to be a land of opportunity, where the individual could take an idea, develop it, and create wealth in the process. Unfortunately, not everyone agrees with this notion. An enemy has arisen in our midst, one who has single-mindedly worked to subvert and even destroy this opportunity.     Surprisingly, it is those we have elected and entrusted with managing our federal government and its burgeoning bureaucracies who are running the country into the ground. Operating under the arrogant delusion that theory is wiser than experience, they have given us an endless…
