    This week, Laurence Fishburne found a way to involve Justin Bieber while explaining the title of his new show, Black-ish. Fishburne, who stars in and produces the ABC comedy, joined The View Monday to clear up questions on what the show’s title actually means: I think of [the term] this way—two words: Justin Bieber. Justin Bieber acts ‘black-ish,’ but he doesn’t get shot by the police. He gets a police escort home. Well ok, then. Goldberg had said she “didn’t understand” why people get freaked out by the word ‘black-ish.’ “I don’t know,”…

    For-profit colleges will have to limit how much debt students amass in career-training programs or have their federal funding cut, according to rules issued Thursday by the Obama administration. The rules are the culmination of years of contentious debates over the responsibility for-profit colleges have to ensure that graduates of career programs receive “gainful employment.” While the restrictions could place 1,400 programs in jeopardy of losing federal student aid, critics say the rules still leave room for schools to abuse the system.

  • The Many Lives of Darth Vader

    29 Oct 2014 | 6:18 am
    Since his debut in the 1977 movie Star Wars, Darth Vader has been a rather busy Sith Lord. Apart from appearing in several movies since, Vader has also taken time out to participate in many other activities. For example, in recent months, he has shown a keen interest in Ukrainian politics. Over the years, news photographers have captured Lord Vader at premieres, rallies, promotional events, conferences, and sporting events, and even caught him at some low points, including a bank robbery. Gathered here are a handful of images of Vader's offscreen appearances around the world (Earth). [26…
  • Lava Flow Threatens Pahoa, Hawaii

    On June 27, a new lava flow emerged from Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano, flowing to the northeast at a rate varying from 2 meters per hour up to 15 meters per hour. In the months since, the "June 27 breakout" lava flow has crossed more than 12 miles and now threatens the small town of Pahoa. The molten rock has already claimed acres of forest, several roads, and small farm buildings, and buried the Pahoa Cemetery. Dozens of Pahoa residents have been evacuated ahead of the slow-moving disaster, as state and federal officials work to protect what they can and plan for the worst. If the flow continues…

Six students were killed in the clash, and another 43 remain missing—last seen in the custody of police. Mexican authorities and relatives of the missing now fear that the 43 trainee teachers may have been massacred by local police in league with members of the Guerreros Unidos drug cartel. Yesterday, Mexico ordered the arrest of Iguala Mayor Jose Luis Abarca, his wife, and an aide, charging them with masterminding the attack. Fifty others had already…

    Abortion is one of the most furiously-fought issues in our country although it’s been legal for over four decades.

Writer KATHA POLLITT wants to reset the way we talk and think about abortion. In her book Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights, Pollitt takes a hard look at the abortion debate — why it’s so contentious and why abortion proponents seem to be losing ground.

  • Fox News seeds climate doubts, but liberal media also distort

    Matthew Nisbet, Associate Professor of Communication at Northeastern University
    30 Oct 2014 | 2:51 am
    Recent Pew Research Center studies offer valuable insight on the ideological makeup of those Americans most likely to voice their opinion in politics generally and the climate debate specifically, including the news sources they rely on to articulate their arguments. What’s clear from the Pew findings and related research is that the highly selective media habits of strongly conservative and liberal Americans are likely to be a major barrier to charting a path to progress on our tough, new planet. In a June 2014 study, Pew found that the approximately 1 in 5 Americans who score as either…

    In the US, the risk of getting measles, or dying from influenza is greater than the risk of getting Ebola. Jaime R.

The outbreak has killed nearly 5,000 people in West Africa, but only a handful of cases have been reported in the United States. Still, the virus has sparked widespread fear in the US.

    One way to manage problem gambling would be to limit the supply of poker machines. EPACasino gaming is on the rise across much of the developed world, with governments increasingly unable to resist the allure of windfall taxes and a hefty influx of cash for the local economy. Massachusetts embraced the trend in 2011 when the state legislature voted to legalise casinos.

    Of all of the conspiracy loonies currently at large — birthers, truthers and grassy-knollers, we’re looking at you — there are none quite as febrile as the folks who claim the Apollo moon landings were faked. The theory (with apologies to the word “theory”) presumes that all of the 400,000 people directly or indirectly involved in the moon landings schemed in perfect secrecy to pull off the greatest scam in history, and have maintained their silence for more than two generations since the lunar program ended in 1972. It would be easier just to go to the flipping…

    30 Oct 2014 | 2:45 am
    The city proper has seen its fair share of change over the years. One facet of that change has been the creation of wealth. Here at FindTheBest, we analyzed the most current Five-Year American Community Survey (ACS) data released by the Census Bureau in late 2013 to determine which cities in America contain higher proportions of wealthy households. Defining a wealthy household as one with an income of more than $150,000, we lined up U.S. cities with more than 500,000 people in them to see how America’s biggest cities compare. Here are the 34 cities in the U.S. with a population greater…

    From BBC News- Quiz question: What has been the top trending story on China’s social media this week? Wrong answer: Hong Kong. Correct answer: People named “Guoqing,” which in Chinese means “national celebration.” On Tuesday, Oct. 7, China winds up a weeklong public holiday to mark National Day, the anniversary of the 1949 Revolution when the Communist Party came to power. Since then, the Party has imposed tight control over the media, and at times of crisis the room for nuanced reporting shrinks to zero.

Last month, an unarmed black teenager named Michael Brown was shot by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis. In a less media-saturated time, we might have gone on to consider this serious news event on its own terms, with journalists providing facts and insights, and politicians pondering a course of action. But in the mixed-up scrum of politics and media that our so-called national conversation has become, a serious news event is only the start of the news. Soon after the shooting,…

  • MIT finds switching to higher octane fuel would reduce carbon emissions

It’s called American Foulbrood and its effects are so devastating and infectious, it often requires infected hives to be burned to the ground. Treating Foulbrood is complicated because the disease can evolve to resist antibiotics and other chemical treatments.

    Did you know that New Jersey is the only state to have an official state demon?Once called the Leeds Devil, the Jersey Devil has supposedly roamed the Pine Barrens for nearly 300 years. Goat-like with wings, horns, claws, and a forked tail, it moves quickly and has the habit of emitting bone-chilling screams.Crackpots aren't the only ones who claim to have seen the creepy critter. In the early 19th century, U.S. Commodore Stephen Decatur is said to have seen it when he was “testing cannonballs in the Pine Barrens."

    Yes, Martha Coakley is that bad.The Massachusetts attorney general is most famous for blowing a huge lead in 2010 to lose the commonwealth's special Senate election for the late Ted Kennedy's seat to Scott Brown — then a no-name Tea Partier best known for driving a truck. And while next Tuesday's gubernatorial contest is much closer, she seems poised to follow up her 2010 debacle with a loss to Republican Charlie Baker in this year's governor's race.While only one major survey has Baker ahead by anything like a comfortable margin, Coakley has trailed in six of the last eight polls.

    In a speech earlier this week, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen mentioned a few reasons why economic inequality, which is at historic highs, could be problematic, going so far as to suggest that the gap between rich and poor may not be "compatible with values rooted in our nation's history, among them the high value Americans have traditionally placed on equality of opportunity."Pretty mild stuff, right? Yet conservatives promptly lost their minds.Michael Strain of the American Enterprise Institute captured the outraged tenor of the right's response, saying Yellen was in danger of…

Rebecca Willis explains  From INTELLIGENT LIFE magazine, November/December 2014 I don’t recommend shopping for clothes while wearing gloves. I tried it last winter by mistake when taking refuge from the cold in a local boutique.

Yet something about being on the battle lines draws in wildland firefighters season after season. For Jarvis Manuel, a 14-year veteran with B.C. Wildfire, it’s the people.

    This video, shot from an Allsopp Helikite at an altitude of about 30 meters, demonstrates one of the potential uses of the Helikite (which I would have called a balloon). The Geography Department of Kings College in London has been experimenting with the device. The website for the kite says it can be used for lifting radios, repeaters, antennas, cameras, and other sensors. At the Large Fire Conference in Missoula we saw something similar demonstrated.

  • Fox News seeds climate doubts, but liberal media also distort

    Matthew Nisbet, Associate Professor of Communication at Northeastern University
    30 Oct 2014 | 2:51 am
    Recent Pew Research Center studies offer valuable insight on the ideological makeup of those Americans most likely to voice their opinion in politics generally and the climate debate specifically, including the news sources they rely on to articulate their arguments. What’s clear from the Pew findings and related research is that the highly selective media habits of strongly conservative and liberal Americans are likely to be a major barrier to charting a path to progress on our tough, new planet. In a June 2014 study, Pew found that the approximately 1 in 5 Americans who score as either…

    In the US, the risk of getting measles, or dying from influenza is greater than the risk of getting Ebola. Jaime R. Carrero/ReutersNews that a doctor in New York City tested positive for Ebola sparked mandatory quarantine orders for heath workers returning from West Africa in New York and New Jersey last week. The outbreak has killed nearly 5,000 people in West Africa, but only a handful of cases have been reported in the United States. Still, the virus has sparked widespread fear in the US. Views that Ebola is an exotic disease spreading out of control within Africa, with horrific symptoms,…

    One way to manage problem gambling would be to limit the supply of poker machines. EPACasino gaming is on the rise across much of the developed world, with governments increasingly unable to resist the allure of windfall taxes and a hefty influx of cash for the local economy. Massachusetts embraced the trend in 2011 when the state legislature voted to legalise casinos. Construction is underway for the state’s first casino at Plainridge Park, with 1,250 slot machines, harness racing and an estimated 500 new jobs. That decision is now up for review, with a repeal referendum to be considered…

    "In the latest chapter, Kozelek has recorded a song called 'Adam Granofsky Blues', a spoken word piece over a laid-back, acoustic blues progression where Kozelek reads what Granofsky had to say about him and laughs at each line. Hear it above." Unlike most rock stars in 2014, Sun Kil Moon mastermind Mark Kozelek doesn't have any time for the internet. But he's pulled off a magic trick of ensuring we're still talking about him online. That's not an easy trick.

I even bought the domain, which was incredibly well-timed. Unfortunately, a few things didn't work out—one of them being that the cultural interest was slow moving, and the other being that the approach was too bulky.

  • Political Battle in Oro: Gary Juffa vs David Arore

    29 Oct 2014 | 10:30 pm
    Commentary  by Peter BalosOn the 28th of October, 2014, the Oro Provincial Assembly (the Assembly) in an unprecedented maneuver ousted Hon. Garry Juffa as the Governor of the Province and voted in Ijivitari MP Hon. David Arore as the new Governor.

  • Countering the Threat of North Korean Warheads

    Gordon G. Chang
    29 Oct 2014 | 12:00 pm
    On Friday, General Curtis Scaparrotti, commander of UN and US forces in Korea, told reporters that he believes Pyongyang has developed the “capability” to miniaturize a nuclear device. The regime, he said during a Pentagon press briefing, also has the “technology” to deliver that device by ballistic missile. The general did not claim North Korea had actually mounted a warhead on a missile or that it had in fact tested the combination, but of course it is only a matter of time before it does so. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, as the North likes to call itself, has claimed…
  • Tunisian Voters Say No to Islamists

    Michael J. Totten
    27 Oct 2014 | 10:54 am
    Tunisia just held a parliamentary election and Ennahda, the sort-of-moderate-but-not-really Islamist party lost to the ardently secular Nidaa Tounes, which translates into Call of Tunisia. Ennahda is the Tunisian Branch of the Muslim Brotherhood under another name, and it wears a more moderate face than the Egyptian branch. Tunisia is a genuinely moderate country and Ennahda’s leaders have no choice but to tone down their rhetoric and their platform if they want to seriously compete in elections. Even so, they still only won 30 percent of the seats. The previous regime was aggressively…
  • Leave Putin His Scraps

    Alexander J. Motyl
    24 Oct 2014 | 10:32 am
    Would territorial retreats whet Vladimir Putin’s imperialist appetite? I’d be rich if I had a hryvnia for every time I’ve heard that question answered in the affirmative. Accordingly, if one concedes an inch to Putin, he’ll take a mile. And, naturally, that mile will only be the prelude to many more miles. In sum, you can’t concede an inch—or else. Critics of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s “peace plan” for the Donbas enclave controlled by Russia and its terrorist proxies generally make this argument. Providing the enclave with a special status and effectively…

    On Monday, GreatFire.org, an Internet monitoring group, charged that China launched “a malicious attack on Apple in an effort to gain access to usernames and passwords and consequently all data stored on iCloud.” The “man-in-the-middle” attack, which deceived users into logging onto a Chinese government-controlled website instead of Apple’s, was directly traceable to China’s central government. “We know that the attack point is the Chinese Internet backbone and that it is nationwide, which would lead us to be 100 percent sure that this is again the work of the Chinese…
  • The Twisted Appeal of ISIS

    Michael J. Totten
    22 Oct 2014 | 3:49 pm
    A poll released last week by the Washington Institute suggestss that the Islamic State may be more popular in Europe than in the Middle East. Lee Smith tries to make sense of it. Europe’s got great health care, welfare, and lots of attractive young men and attractive women who, unlike the vast majority of women in the Middle East outside of Israel, are sexually available. So, why given a choice between a comfortable, if somewhat boring, life as a pharmacist in Hamburg, or fighting and dying in the desert, are thousands of Western Muslims opting for the latter? Because, for all the awesome…

  • HDFC Life QROPS India Removed from List

    Saeed Maleki
    28 Oct 2014 | 8:18 pm
    HMRC has removed all HDFC Life QROPS from the list of approved schemes as of October 17th. This comes as a major blow to the Indian QROPS market, as HDFC was the largest provider left after 15 schemes were previously delisted in July 2014. HDFC has lost all five schemes due to non-compliance, and this leaves just seven listed QROPS in a jurisdiction which has seen huge growth over the last two years. Unfortunately, HDFC has fallen foul of an in-depth investigation by HMRC, and although no official explanation is given when a scheme is struck off, it is thought that the ‘immediate annuity’…
  • Blunkett Supports Immigration Comments

    Ali Shahsavandi
    28 Oct 2014 | 6:06 am
    The UK’s former Home Secretary, Labour politician David Blunkett, has come out in support of the cabinet minister Michael Fallon, who has been widely criticised for his controversial stance on immigration. Fallon, who is the current Defence Secretary, said that the UK was “swamped by immigrants.” He also claimed that some areas of the UK were “under siege” by foreign nationals. He then retracted the comments, citing them as “careless” but the damage was done. In an outburst which would have more appropriate at a UKIP rally, Fallon was rounded on and backed up in equal measure,…

    The ruler of Kuwait has today warned that the declining price of oil is affecting his country and its economy. Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmed has told his politicians to start thinking about diversifying the country’s portfolio of investments as Kuwait’s dependence on oil – which is likely to run dry in under 50 years for the Gulf state – threatens to impact on the standard of living for Kuwaitis.

    Microsoft has announced that their next line of smart phones will NOT feature the legendary device manufacturer Nokia. Bill Gates’ heavy hitters acquired Nokia in April 2014 in a deal rumoured to be worth in the region of £4.6 billion. But, with the latest announcement it seems that the brand name Nokia – synonymous with the mainstream popularity of mobile phones and the sturdy 3310 which everyone in the world owned at some point – is set to never feature on a device again.

    Paralympian Oscar Pistorious has been sentenced to five years imprisonment by Judge Thokozile Masipa for killing his then girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. The Judgement took an extended amount of time as the Judge bizarrely elected to go over the case and the arguments for perhaps the fourth time during the trial. Pistorious managed to somehow escape a murder verdict for the incident on 14th February 2014, due in main to the poor prosecution arguments put across by the Police. The Judge stated that it would be unreasonable to usurp the Department of Correctional Services’ recommendation…

    admin

    The iPad mini 2 and iPad mini 3 are virtually the same tablet. Though we still don’t know how much RAM the new tablet has (the previous version has 1GB), overall performance shouldn’t change much between both models. In terms of pricing, however, the iPad mini 2 and mini 3 are worlds apart, separated by $100. In terms of deals, pricing will also vary significantly as deals on the newer tablet won’t come close to deals on the “older” model, so we recommend shoppers opt for the iPad mini 2, which again will offer the same performance at a lower price point.

However, this year we expect to see an abundance of iPad mini deals with prices starting as low as $199. First, we’ll start with the cheapest iPad — the non-Retina iPad mini (2012). Last year, when the iPad mini Retina was announced, the first-generation iPad mini got a 9% price drop from $329 to $299. Retailers then cut the price of the first-gen mini down from $299 to $249, taking roughly 16% off…

  • Countering the Threat of North Korean Warheads

    Gordon G. Chang
    29 Oct 2014 | 12:00 pm
    On Friday, General Curtis Scaparrotti, commander of UN and US forces in Korea, told reporters that he believes Pyongyang has developed the “capability” to miniaturize a nuclear device. The regime, he said during a Pentagon press briefing, also has the “technology” to deliver that device by ballistic missile. The general did not claim North Korea had actually mounted a warhead on a missile or that it had in fact tested the combination, but of course it is only a matter of time before it does so. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, as the North likes to call itself, has claimed…

    Gordon G. Chang

    On Monday, GreatFire.org, an Internet monitoring group, charged that China launched “a malicious attack on Apple in an effort to gain access to usernames and passwords and consequently all data stored on iCloud.” The “man-in-the-middle” attack, which deceived users into logging onto a Chinese government-controlled website instead of Apple’s, was directly traceable to China’s central government. “We know that the attack point is the Chinese Internet backbone and that it is nationwide, which would lead us to be 100 percent sure that this is again the work of the Chinese…
  • Indian Economy to Overtake China’s

    Gordon G. Chang
    15 Oct 2014 | 11:42 am
    We are headed to “a world-turned-upside-down moment,” which could come as early as 2016. “That’s when,” Businessweek tells us, “India, always the laggard, may pull ahead of China and become the fastest-growing of Asia’s giants.” Analysts used to ask, “Can India Catch Up with China?” Now, it looks almost inevitable. There’s no mystery for the change in narrative. In a five-week-long election ending in May, 541 million voters went to the polls, and most of them demanded fundamental change. They rejected the ruling Congress Party of the Gandhi family, which had dominated…
  • China’s Economy Slides—and Capital Flees

    Gordon G. Chang

    In a few days, China’s official National Bureau of Statistics will report the results for both September, the last month of the third calendar quarter, and the quarter as a whole. Analysts generally expect growth of gross domestic product will fall slightly from the second quarter’s 7.5 percent. Bank of China, one of the country’s Big Four state banks, predicts the economy will expand 7.3 percent. In reality, growth is far less than that. Especially indicative is electricity consumption, often viewed as a proxy for the economy as a whole and widely considered to be the most reliable…
  • For Hong Kong, Nothing Is Better Than Something

    Gordon G. Chang
    6 Oct 2014 | 8:17 am
    “Beijing is not going to lose,” said Jeff Bader to the Washington Post on Thursday, referring to the ongoing student-led democracy protests in Hong Kong. Because, as he puts it, people in Hong Kong “have very good lives” and “don’t see democratic development as the key to a good life,” Obama’s former top Asia adviser suggests the protesters accept Beijing’s proposed procedures for the 2017 election for chief executive, the city’s top political official. His recommendation is wrong on many counts but especially because people in Hong Kong should not legitimize the upcoming…

  • Tunisian Voters Say No to Islamists

    Michael J. Totten
    27 Oct 2014 | 10:54 am
    Tunisia just held a parliamentary election and Ennahda, the sort-of-moderate-but-not-really Islamist party lost to the ardently secular Nidaa Tounes, which translates into Call of Tunisia. Ennahda is the Tunisian Branch of the Muslim Brotherhood under another name, and it wears a more moderate face than the Egyptian branch. Tunisia is a genuinely moderate country and Ennahda’s leaders have no choice but to tone down their rhetoric and their platform if they want to seriously compete in elections. Even so, they still only won 30 percent of the seats. The previous regime was aggressively…
  • The Twisted Appeal of ISIS

    Michael J. Totten
    22 Oct 2014 | 3:49 pm
    A poll released last week by the Washington Institute suggestss that the Islamic State may be more popular in Europe than in the Middle East. Lee Smith tries to make sense of it. Europe’s got great health care, welfare, and lots of attractive young men and attractive women who, unlike the vast majority of women in the Middle East outside of Israel, are sexually available. So, why given a choice between a comfortable, if somewhat boring, life as a pharmacist in Hamburg, or fighting and dying in the desert, are thousands of Western Muslims opting for the latter? Because, for all the awesome…
  • Turkey Bombs the Kurds

    Michael J. Totten
    15 Oct 2014 | 9:57 pm
    Turkey finally decided to use military force after watching the Islamic State in Syria advance on the Kurdish city of Kobani—and did so by bombing the Kurds. The Kurdistan Worker's Party (PKK) deserves plenty of blame here. Its fighters reportedly fired on Turkish positions near the Iraqi border. But no one who has paid the slightest attention to what Turkey has been up to for the last several decades has any right to be shocked by Turkish willingness to bomb the Kurds but not the IS. There was never much chance that Turkey would help defeat the IS in Syria or Iraq. Prime Minister Recep…
  • From Havana to Hanoi

    Michael J. Totten
    12 Oct 2014 | 7:21 pm
    Vietnam’s communists are a hell of a lot smarter than Cuba’s. Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, thunders with economic productivity and bristles with new construction while most of Cuba’s capital Havana resembles a post-apocalyptic ruinscape. While civilized countries have a minimum wage, Cuba has a maximum wage of twenty dollars per month for almost every job in the country. A beer costs an entire week’s salary and a meal out in a restaurants costs a month’s, so drinking and dining establishments are almost strictly for foreigners. In Hanoi, though, you can’t walk a block without…

    9 Oct 2014 | 1:27 pm
    After the release of my zombie novel, Resurrection, City Journal asked if I could explain why so many people worldwide are obsessed with zombies. Here’s the first part of my essay: “Wild, dark times are rumbling toward us,” the German poet and journalist Heinrich Heine wrote in 1842, “and the prophet who wishes to write a new apocalypse will have to invent entirely new beasts, and beasts so terrible that the ancient animal symbols of Saint John will seem like cooing doves and cupids in comparison.” Heine wasn’t thinking of zombies, necessarily, but 170 years later, many of us are.

  • Leave Putin His Scraps

    Alexander J. Motyl
    24 Oct 2014 | 10:32 am
    Would territorial retreats whet Vladimir Putin’s imperialist appetite? I’d be rich if I had a hryvnia for every time I’ve heard that question answered in the affirmative. Accordingly, if one concedes an inch to Putin, he’ll take a mile. And, naturally, that mile will only be the prelude to many more miles. In sum, you can’t concede an inch—or else. Critics of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s “peace plan” for the Donbas enclave controlled by Russia and its terrorist proxies generally make this argument. Providing the enclave with a special status and effectively…
  • Ukraine Should Abandon the Donbas Enclave

    Alexander J. Motyl
    21 Oct 2014 | 10:16 am
    Ukraine has two nonnegotiable priorities in its ongoing war with Russia: survival and reform. Ukraine must survive as a sovereign democratic state in the short term if it is to reform, and it must reform itself in the medium term in order to survive and become a prosperous and secure sovereign democratic state in the long term. Both goals can be best advanced if Ukraine washes its hands of the enclave of the Donbas region that Russia and its proxies now control. Europe’s foremost priority is inextricably connected to Ukraine’s. Europe’s two key pillars—the European Union and the North…
  • Ukraine Must Reform to Save Itself

    Alexander J. Motyl
    17 Oct 2014 | 8:19 am
    Will NATO Save Ukraine from Russia? I’m surprised by how many people, especially in Ukraine, believe the answer is yes. And I’m no less surprised by how many Western analysts and Russian policymakers claim that that’s exactly what NATO hopes to do—and, by implication, will do. Naturally, Russians describe NATO’s presumed intentions as offensive and not defensive. It’s time to wake up and smell the espresso in Brussels. First, NATO has no army. As an institution, as a bureaucracy located in two complexes in and near the capital of Belgium, the alliance does not have troops. It can…

    Three recent news items deserve our attention.First the good news. According to the Russia-based Sociological Service of the Anti-Corruption Fund the vast majority of residents of Odessa and Kharkiv provinces support Ukrainian statehood and oppose Vladimir Putin’s New Russia (Novorossiya) project. A telephone survey of 1,000 people conducted on September 8th to 17th revealed the following attitudes: 87 percent stated they want “their region to remain a part of Ukraine,” as opposed to 3 percent who opted for membership in Russia and 2 percent who preferred New Russia. 34 percent want…
  • Will Putin's Successor Be Worse?

    Alexander J. Motyl
    22 Sep 2014 | 10:39 am
    Who will succeed Vladimir Putin if and when he falls? Will things get better or worse? Those are the intriguing questions posed by Benjamin Bidder, Moscow correspondent for the German news weekly Der Spiegel. Bidder concludes that the democrats have little chance of replacing Putin and that his successor is likely to be worse. It takes little fantasy to imagine Putin’s political end. He cannot be voted out of office like his friend Gerhard Schröder. Two scenarios are possible: either the current political elite in the Kremlin installs a successor or the Russians get rid of Putin and his…

    Things are looking up in Qatar; not only the skyscrapers rising from its desert sands. Index provider MSCI recently announced it would reclassify Qatar from frontier market to emerging market status.   The most significant potential benefit of this reclassification could be the dose of added confidence it will give investors.   I think Qatar’s future looks very bright for a number of reasons.   For ease of doing business, Qatar is one of the best in the region.   1.  The World Bank’s 2014-2015 Global Competitiveness index ranks it 16th among 189 countries in this…

    By Stewart Lawrence. Article adapted from his forthcoming book: MAÑANA: Barack Obama and the Politics of Ethnic Co-Optation. Are Latinos planning to vote in the midterm elections two weeks from now?

    By Stewart J. Lawrence The two men bear an uncanny physical resemblance:  Ted Cruz, the grandstanding junior Republican senator from Texas, who has emerged as one of President Obama’s most vitriolic policy critics, and the late Wisconsin Republican Senator Joe McCarthy, who garnered the national spotlight in the 1950s by charging that “communists” had infiltrated the American government.

  • Yoga Booty: Have Stretch Pants Become Too Hot for High School?

    By Stewart J. Lawrence It’s every Mom and Dad’s worst nightmare: Their teenage daughter shows up at the breakfast table wearing something “inappropriate” for school — and refuses to change. Typically it’s a skirt that’s just a little too short — or maybe way too short, especially since “Her Highness” insists on wearing her favorite red thongs underneath them, as well. Or maybe it’s a blouse with a plunging neckline or one that’s so sheer, it exposes her obviously bra-less midriff. These days, though, with gender hysteria at an all-time high,…
