    Last night, the decision of a St. Louis County grand jury to not indict Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson was announced, leading to protests in many cities across the U.S. In Ferguson, Missouri, where Officer Wilson shot and killed Michael Brown last August, demonstrations quickly turned violent, despite calls for peaceful protest from the Brown family and members of the community. Cars were smashed, stores looted, and at least a dozen buildings were set on fire, as a heavy police presence tried to establish order. Due to safety concerns including sporadic gunfire, firefighters were…
  • The Ship Breakers

    24 Nov 2014 | 6:55 am
    Modern steel-hulled ships are built to last for several decades at sea before repair becomes uneconomical. After their useful life is over, more than 90 percent of the world's ocean-going container ships end up on the shores of India, Pakistan, Indonesia, or Bangladesh, where labor is cheap, demand for steel is high, and environmental regulations are lax. The ships are driven right up onto shoreline lots set aside for ship breaking, then attacked by hammer and blowtorch until all usable material has been stripped away to be sold or recycled. The work is extremely difficult, and low-paid…

AAP/Andrew BrownbillThe Accountability Round Table (ART), a non-partisan organisation, wrote to the three major political parties two months ago seeking their position on three important arms of Victoria’s integrity system: Freedom of Information, the Independent Broad-Based Anti-Corruption Commission, and political donations.

  • The significance of digits: just how reliable are reported numbers?

    Jonathan Borwein (Jon), Laureate Professor of Mathematics at University of Newcastle
    26 Nov 2014 | 5:52 pm
    There is such a thing as 'too precise' when it comes to numbers. So what's appropriate? Erik Olsson, CC BY-NC-SAWhen numbers of any sort are presented in mathematics, science, business, government or finance, it’s fair to say a reader assumes that the data are reasonably reliable to their last digit. But presenting data to more digits of accuracy than is appropriate from the context can be deeply misleading, conveying much more reliability than is really present in the data. If a light bulb is listed as using 40 watts, then its actual usage is certainly not 20 or 60 watts, but…

    It can take more than three years for a public servant to climb back to their same level of pay after losing their job. Alex Proimos/Flickr, CC BY-NCBy 2017, some 16,500 public servants will have lost their jobs, or have been shuffled into other positions within the public service, in the government’s ongoing drive for budget savings. The long-standing Commonwealth “efficiency dividend” also has impacts on jobs, as it works on the premise that increases in productivity make it possible to reduce funding to Commonwealth agencies without compromising outputs. But what of the impact on the…

But its profile just skyrocketed with a grand jury deciding not to indict policeman Darren Wilson over the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

As recently as two decades ago, free and fair elections were unimaginable for most citizens of Taiwan. Ground down by martial law, public conformity ran deep. Those who refused the ruling power were punished, often harshly. Heads-down cynicism flourished. The regime had mastered the dark arts of rigging elections.

    When a grand jury declined to indict Darren Wilson for killing Michael Brown, this did not mean that all of the legal questions had been resolved. While Wilson may not be charged with a crime under Missouri law, a federal prosecution remains possible.* “Though we have shared information with local prosecutors during the course of our investigation,” declared Attorney General Eric Holder in a statement released Tuesday, “the federal inquiry has been independent of the local one from the start, and remains so now.” And even if Darren Wilson is not charged with a state or federal…

A memorial tapestry has been spray-painted onto its dented surface: the names of black men recently killed by police are written on the hood; “We The People,” “Mike We Out Here,” “F.T.P,” and “No Justice No Peace!!!” adorn various panels; and in big lettering across the rear windshield, “FRONT LINE.” Arguably the protesters’ most consistently successful…

The aftershocks of what's been called "patient safety's first scandal" continue to reverberate in the medical community, most recently in the current issue of the Journal of Patient Safety. The Journal's editorial team reviewed 10 articles by Dr. Chuck Denham, the publication's previous editor, and said nine had potential conflicts of interest, five of them undisclosed. Though it's unlikely the articles resulted in patient harm, the editorial said, they may have hurt the journal's credibility. The review is the latest turn…

    by Isaiah Thompson, special to ProPublica, The oil boom underway in North Dakota has delivered jobs to local economies and helped bring the United States to the brink of being a net energy exporter for the first time in generations. But moving that oil to the few refineries with the capacity to process it is presenting a new danger to towns and cities nationwide — a danger many appear only dimly aware of and are ill-equipped to handle. Much of North Dakota's oil is being transported by rail, rather than through pipelines, which are the safest way to move crude. Tank carloads of crude…

In denying the motion to suppress the confession of Pedro Hernandez, the defendant in the case, Justice Maxwell Wiley said Hernandez did have the mental capacity to waive his rights to have an attorney present and understood that he had the right to remain silent.

    26 Nov 2014 | 7:30 pm
    Deforestation in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest has fallen to its second-lowest level in 25 years, according to the country’s environment minister Izabella Teixeira. Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, Teixera said 4,848 square km of forest were cut down between Aug. 2013 and Jul. 2014, compared to 5,891 square km during the same period a year earlier, the Associated Press reports. The drop is a surprise, since environmental groups have been warning of an increase following the adoption of a controversial 2012 bill that eases clearing restrictions for small landowners.

The short video shows an Asian-American shopkeeper standing in his looted store, with a hands-in-his-pockets matter-of-factness and a sad slump to his facial expression. “Are you okay, sir?” an off-screen cameraman asks. “Yes,” the storeowner says, dejectedly. The clip is only a few seconds, but it highlights the question of where Asian-Americans stand in the black and white palette often used to paint incidents like Ferguson. In the story of a white…

For a big-box store like Target, it takes pretty much a small village to make the Black Thanksgiving/Black Friday shopping extravaganza go off without a hitch.

    A wintry mix of snow and rain that crept up the East Coast on Wednesday slowed travel on one of the busiest days of the year. According to the website Flightaware.com, 4,548 flights were delayed into, within or out of the U.S. Wednesday and 731 were canceled.

    25 Nov 2014 | 6:10 am
    Do you know how that tuna sashimi got to your dinner plate? Probably not—and chances are, the restaurant that served it to you doesn’t know, either. A new policy paper argues that illicit fishing practices are flying under the radar all around the world, and global society must combat them in order to keep seafood on the menu. According to the paper, published in Science, fishing practices that are illegal, unreported and unregulated (collectively referred to as IUU) are ubiquitous. They range from bottom trawlers scouring the seafloor—sometimes catching more illegal…

    When millions of monarch butterflies take to the sky and fly thousands of kilometres from the United States and southern Canada to Mexico, the view is breathtaking. But over the last few decades, their numbers have plummeted, and last year hit an all-time low. Illegal logging in Mexican forests, where the monarchs hibernate during winter, has traditionally been to blame. But large-scale logging by companies appears to have been halted. And now small-scale logging by local people for firewood and timber — a “growing concern in 2013” — has also stopped, according to…

    TEL AVIV – The U.S.-led Western coalition is planning a major surge of counter-attacks against ISIS in coming weeks, but informed Middle Eastern security officials say the strategy is partly dependent on cooperation from Turkey and Saudi Arabia. The officials note that both countries have asked the U.S. for an understanding that strikes will also target the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in exchange for the Turkish and Saudi cooperation. The Obama administration seems unlikely to acquiesce to any requests to target Assad’s forces as part of the fight against ISIS.

Its CEO made callous remarks about customer privacy, sparking a firestorm of bad publicity and reports on the company's "frat house ideology" and trust problem.

A recent report from the National Audubon Society, compiled from data collected over 30 years of bird counts and surveys, shows that more than half of North America's most iconic birds are in serious danger. Of the 588 bird species surveyed, 314 are at risk for losing significant amounts of their habitat to a changing climate."Birds are a good barometer of the overall health and wellbeing of the natural systems we depend on for food, water, and clear air," Audubon chief scientist Gary Langham wrote in an email.

    This week, Oregon, Alaska and Washington D.C. joined Colorado and Washington State on the list of US states to legalize or decriminalize cannabis (marijuana). What powers this sudden and dramatic U-turn in drugs policy? Humanistic sense dawning on the authorities? The artful lobbying of the pro-campaigners?

    CBS’ coverage of Macy’s parade last year featured viewers’ Instagram photos shown on screen — this year, it’s expanding audience’s participation even more.

Anchors or the people behind the camera merely have to choose the posts they want to broadcast, and they’ll show up instantly as tickers or graphics, without the need for further editing.

  • GoPro is reportedly making camera-equipped drones

    It’s not enough to simply strap an action camera on your helmet these days; now that you can mount a camera on a drone or get one built-in, aerial sports footage is the way to go. And GoPro knows it, apparently. The Wall Street Journal hears that GoPro is creating its own line of camera-equipped multirotor drones. Details are scarce at this early stage, but the range is meant to cost between $500 to $1,000 and should ship by the end of 2015. The company isn’t confirming the rumor, although it’s not too worried about being late to the party — as a spokesman tells the…
  • Airdog drone serves as your loyal action sports cameraman

    Guest QnXKW
    26 Nov 2014 | 3:00 pm
    The battle in the skies this week is the autonomous action-sports drone apparently. Why? Because, what if you want to be the star in your as yet un-made aerial epic? With a regular drone that’s a tricky one. You could film yourself, as you stand flying the drone, but where’s the fun in that? Airdog is a quadcopter drone that follows you, using GPS and movement tracking to keep up as you get down (the slope, or whatever). Action camera selfie videos are cool and all, but wouldn’t an epic aerial shot following you carving through fresh powder snow, or riding that killer wave,…

    Ubisoft may not have a way to turn back time and release Assassin’s Creed Unity without a slew of glitches, but it’s at least trying to make amends to jilted gamers. The studio has announced that it’s giving every Unity owner a free copy of the upcoming Dead Kings add-on that they’d have previously had to buy. That’s not a radical concept in itself (Driveclub‘s developer is doing the same), but Ubi is going one step further by giving Season Pass holders their choice of free game, such as Far Cry 4 or Watch Dogs. And for that matter, it’s scrapping…

    26 Nov 2014 | 6:38 pm
    What are we voting for? Certainly not decisions made in MPs' own interest or that of political parties or business cronies, but the present system lets that happen. AAP/Andrew BrownbillThe Accountability Round Table (ART), a non-partisan organisation, wrote to the three major political parties two months ago seeking their position on three important arms of Victoria’s integrity system: Freedom of Information, the Independent Broad-Based Anti-Corruption Commission, and political donations. While the responses promised to remedy shortcomings, in several areas they fall well short of what…
  • The significance of digits: just how reliable are reported numbers?

    Jonathan Borwein (Jon), Laureate Professor of Mathematics at University of Newcastle
    26 Nov 2014 | 5:52 pm
    There is such a thing as 'too precise' when it comes to numbers. So what's appropriate? Erik Olsson, CC BY-NC-SAWhen numbers of any sort are presented in mathematics, science, business, government or finance, it’s fair to say a reader assumes that the data are reasonably reliable to their last digit. But presenting data to more digits of accuracy than is appropriate from the context can be deeply misleading, conveying much more reliability than is really present in the data. If a light bulb is listed as using 40 watts, then its actual usage is certainly not 20 or 60 watts, but…

    Genevieve Knight, Senior Research Fellow, National Institute of Labour Studies at Flinders University
    26 Nov 2014 | 5:42 pm
    It can take more than three years for a public servant to climb back to their same level of pay after losing their job. Alex Proimos/Flickr, CC BY-NCBy 2017, some 16,500 public servants will have lost their jobs, or have been shuffled into other positions within the public service, in the government’s ongoing drive for budget savings. The long-standing Commonwealth “efficiency dividend” also has impacts on jobs, as it works on the premise that increases in productivity make it possible to reduce funding to Commonwealth agencies without compromising outputs. But what of the impact on the…
  • Only in America: why Australia is right not to have grand juries

    Kellie Toole, Lecturer in Law at University of Adelaide
    26 Nov 2014 | 4:22 pm
    A grand jury decision not to indict a police officer over the shooting death of Michael Brown has sparked protests and questions over the system's efficacy. EPA/Michael ReynoldsThe idea of the grand jury is already familiar to many Australians through American television legal drama. But its profile just skyrocketed with a grand jury deciding not to indict policeman Darren Wilson over the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. But just how “grand” is the grand jury? And why doesn’t the system exist in Australia? History of grand juries A grand jury is…

    Chiang Kai-shek bronze statues, rescued from oblivion, Cihu Memorial Sculpture Park, near Dasi township, Taiwan John Keane This is the third in a series covering the background and current dynamics of this Saturday’s fiercely fought ‘nine-in-one’ elections in Taiwan. As recently as two decades ago, free and fair elections were unimaginable for most citizens of Taiwan. Ground down by martial law, public conformity ran deep. Those who refused the ruling power were punished, often harshly. Heads-down cynicism flourished. The regime had mastered the dark arts of rigging elections.

Although they logically dominate today’s headlines, they do not represent the only side of Detroit’s economic development story.

Indeed, McDonald’s urban investments signal other investors that neighborhood revival is underway. L-R: McDonald’s…

    26 Nov 2014 | 11:30 am
    On November 18, the United Nations Third Committee adopted a resolution recommending the referral of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to the International Criminal Court, alleging crimes against humanity. This was the first time a U.N. resolution recommended sending North Korea to The Hague. The General Assembly is expected to accept the committee’s report next month and formally pass the matter to the Security Council.  China and Russia, among the 19 voting against the Third Committee resolution, will undoubtedly use their Security Council vetoes to make sure the ICC does not…

    Earlier this month, the leaders of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE)—the oldest and largest pan-European organization that brings together national lawmakers from across the continent—visited Moscow for talks with State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin. The principal topic of discussion was the restoration of voting rights for Russian delegates, which were suspended in April following the annexation of Crimea. The talks brought good news for the Kremlin. According to Andreas Gross, a Swiss lawmaker and the Assembly’s rapporteur on Russia, most leaders of the…
  • Time for a Hybrid War Against Russia?

    Alexander J. Motyl
    25 Nov 2014 | 9:34 am
    Should Ukraine embark on a “hybrid war” against the Donbas enclave controlled by Russia and its proxies? One of Ukraine’s best military analysts, Yuri Butusov, the Russian-speaking editor of the Censor.net website, effectively argues that the answer is yes. Hybrid war is the term analysts apply to what many believe is Russia’s new way of war-making in southeastern Ukraine, one that employs a variety of means—propaganda, subversion, outright aggression, support for proxies, and the like—while remaining undeclared or denied. Butusov believes that the recent G-20 summit in Australia…

    Vietnam is an authoritarian one-party state that looks and feels like a free country. Local people scoff at the government publicly without fear of reprisal. I saw plenty of men in uniforms from both the police and the army, but they did not look intimidating, nor did they look like they were trying to be. They carried themselves the way uniformed security people carry themselves in countries like the US and Canada. I didn’t worry for even a second that my hotel room might be bugged. It wasn’t, and if it had been I wouldn’t have cared. There was no need for me to keep my identity as a…
  • Does Ukraine’s Reform Plan Measure Up?

    Alexander J. Motyl
    21 Nov 2014 | 10:00 am
    The reform plan of Ukraine’s coalition government-in-the-making has received mixed reviews from a team of Ukraine experts affiliated with the policy discussion website VoxUkraine.  According to the analysis: We assign PASS to 3 sections out of 17, and CONDITIONAL PASS to 6 sections out of 17. We find that the draft does not have a coherent ideology and that many sections advocate Soviet style command economy approach to reforms, while only few sections address the structural causes of the problems in Ukraine. The good news is that the team rates three of 17 sections as excellent, six as…

    Today at the star-studded Yas Island Circuit in Abu Dhabi, Lewis Hamilton will set off in pursuit of his second world championship knowing that he only needs to finish second in order to come through the most one-sided season since Jenson Button took the title in 2009. Then, much as now, there was one stand-out car – the Mercedes engine and controversial diffuser allowing the Brawn GP car to take an unassailable lead by the halfway point in the season, despite the other teams catching up in the latter half of the year. This time around, there has been no challenge to Hamilton and Rosberg in…

  • UK Pensions in the USA Don’t Work, the Only Way is QROPS

    Ali Shahsavandi
    18 Nov 2014 | 6:31 pm
    Living in America but having a UK-based pension scheme will be extremely problematic should you wish to retire stateside. Even by living in the States currently – whether as an expat or US national – you are required to report all assets and income to the IRS, and if you fail to declare a UK pension within your report, the penalties can be huge. Dealing with the IRS The only way to deal with this for the majority is by looking into a Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme. In America, there are currently 15 schemes on the HMRC list, but only one of these – the Fidelity 401k –…

    17 Nov 2014 | 10:26 pm
    One of the main attractions for expatriates moving to the bright lights of Dubai or Abu Dhabi is the promise of a tax-free income. The truth is that while salaries are very much exempt from tax, money is consumed in a variety of alternative ways to pretty much leave many in exactly the same position they would be (financially not geographically) if they remained at home, only a bit hotter. According to research published by multi-national institution Friends Provident, a range of higher living costs consume the tax savings for many, leaving expats to wonder where it all went.

    Black Friday is the fourth Friday of November. Often regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. In recent years, most major retailers have opened very early and offered promotional sales to kick off the holiday shopping season, similar to Boxing Day sales in many Commonwealth nations. It has routinely been the busiest shopping day of the year since 2005. although news reports, which at that time were inaccurate have described it as the busiest shopping day of the year for a much longer period of time.

  • Black Friday : Nextbook 8 PC tablet will be available for just $99

    The Nextbook 8, a PC tablet that runs the latest version of Microsoft Windows, will be available for just $99 on Black Friday at Wal-Mart. It is currently selling for $149. There are some tradeoffs to buying a $99 Windows PC tablet — it has no built in mouse or keyboard, the processor isn’t great, and it only has 16 GB of memory. But the good news for consumers is that PCs are hitting bargain basement prices across the board. The average selling price for Windows PCs during the last three weeks of October was $430, according to NPD. That’s the lowest pricing for Windows computers in…

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.

  • Criminal States Protecting Their Proxies at UN

    26 Nov 2014 | 11:30 am
    On November 18, the United Nations Third Committee adopted a resolution recommending the referral of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to the International Criminal Court, alleging crimes against humanity. This was the first time a U.N. resolution recommended sending North Korea to The Hague. The General Assembly is expected to accept the committee’s report next month and formally pass the matter to the Security Council.  China and Russia, among the 19 voting against the Third Committee resolution, will undoubtedly use their Security Council vetoes to make sure the ICC does not…
  • China: Socialist, Democratic, Harmonious by 2050?

    19 Nov 2014 | 10:00 am
    “I have never heard a Chinese leader declare that his country would be fully democratic by 2050,” said Tony Abbott, the Australian prime minister, on Monday evening as he toasted Xi Jinping. “I have never heard a Chinese leader commit so explicitly to a rule-based international order founded on the principle that we should all treat others as we would be treated ourselves.” And Abbott said this: “I thank you, Mr. President, for this historic, historic statement, which I hope will echo right around the world.” What prompted the effusive compliment? Earlier in the day, Xi had…

    On Tuesday, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said his country and China had agreed to establish a “maritime communication mechanism.” The announcement came the day after he and Chinese President Xi Jinping shook hands at a symbolically powerful public event on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum in Beijing and then met for about 25 minutes. On the proceeding Friday, China and Japan announced a vague four-point plan that looked like a roadmap to improve ties. Most analysts see a gradual warming in relations between the two nations.

    On October 31st, China’s official Xinhua News Agency announced that the National Development and Reform Commission had approved a new rail line running from Lhasa, capital of the Tibet Autonomous Region, east to Nyingchi. Toward its eastern end, the line will come close to India’s state of Arunachal Pradesh. Beijing claims most of Arunachal as its own, calling it “South Tibet.” Therefore, the Lhasa-Nyingchi section, part of the Sichuan-Tibet railway, is bound to heighten concern in New Delhi. Beijing has been expending substantial sums for more than a decade on transportation…

    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…

    Michael J. Totten
    23 Nov 2014 | 12:05 pm
    Vietnam is an authoritarian one-party state that looks and feels like a free country. Local people scoff at the government publicly without fear of reprisal. I saw plenty of men in uniforms from both the police and the army, but they did not look intimidating, nor did they look like they were trying to be. They carried themselves the way uniformed security people carry themselves in countries like the US and Canada. I didn’t worry for even a second that my hotel room might be bugged. It wasn’t, and if it had been I wouldn’t have cared. There was no need for me to keep my identity as a…

  • The Kurds Rise From the Ashes of Syria

    Michael J. Totten
    17 Nov 2014 | 2:15 pm
    Syria no longer exists. The tyrannical regime of Bashar al-Assad governs parts of what’s left of it. The psychopathic Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) controls another large swath. Small scraps of territory are ruled by sundry other militias which, more likely than not, will eventually be absorbed by Assad or ISIS. Up north the Kurds have carved out a proto state of their own which they call Rojava. It is being violently squeezed by ISIS from the south, and it’s jammed up against the wall of the Turkish border to the north. It is split into three besieged non-contiguous cantons, the…

    Russia is provoking Poland on purpose to see how NATO will respond. From Popular Mechanics: NATO and allied jets have scrambled more than 100 times this year in response to Russian military sorties. This activity is growing more dramatic. Within the last week, NATO intercepted four groups of Russian aircraft. "These sizable Russian flights represent an unusual level of air activity over European airspace," the alliance said in a statement. When the planes at Łask jump into action, it's called a Quick Reaction Alert, or QRA. Lt. Col. Ireneusz "Palm" Nowak, the base commander at Łask, says…

    Vladimir Kara-Murza
    25 Nov 2014 | 1:41 pm
    Earlier this month, the leaders of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE)—the oldest and largest pan-European organization that brings together national lawmakers from across the continent—visited Moscow for talks with State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin. The principal topic of discussion was the restoration of voting rights for Russian delegates, which were suspended in April following the annexation of Crimea. The talks brought good news for the Kremlin. According to Andreas Gross, a Swiss lawmaker and the Assembly’s rapporteur on Russia, most leaders of the…
  • Kremlin Returns to Soviet Practice of Stripping Citizenship

    Vladimir Kara-Murza
    10 Nov 2014 | 10:43 am
    MOSCOW — One of the ways of punishing political dissenters under the Soviet regime—alongside prisons, labor camps, and “special psychiatric hospitals”—was forced exile accompanied by a loss of citizenship, to ensure that “offenders” would never return to their country (in practice, “never” was curtailed by the collapse of communism in 1991). This was done, among others, to Nobel laureate Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, samizdat publisher Alexander Ginzburg, and Moscow Helsinki Group founder Yuri Orlov. The writer Vladimir Bukovsky—one of the most prominent figures in the Russian…

    Vladimir Kara-Murza
    26 Sep 2014 | 10:20 am
    MOSCOW — Last Sunday, Russian citizens once again refuted the Kremlin’s propaganda image of a nation united behind the aggressive actions of a dictator. Some 50,000 people, according to media estimates, marched through downtown Moscow to protest Vladimir Putin’s war against Ukraine and his escalating crackdown on what remains of civil liberties in Russia. For the first time in many months, the demonstration was backed by all of Russia’s pro-democracy parties, including the People’s Freedom Party, Yabloko, and Progress Party. Demonstrators were chanting “Peace to Ukraine, Freedom…

    18 Sep 2014 | 12:17 pm
    MOSCOW — Russia’s regional “elections” on September 14th—cleared ahead of time of most Kremlin opponents—predictably ended with Soviet-style 80-to-90 percent approval figures for the incumbents. In St. Petersburg, where some pro-democracy candidates managed to make it onto the municipal ballot, their actual results were drowned in the thousands of “early voter ballots”—outside of the control of independent monitors—almost all of which, by pure coincidence, were cast for Vladimir Putin’s United Russia party. As a result, the liberal Yabloko party—always a strong…

    Vladimir Kara-Murza
    11 Sep 2014 | 10:49 am
    MOSCOW — On September 14th, dozens of Russian regions, including Moscow and St. Petersburg, will hold elections on different levels, from municipal councilors to regional legislators and governors. Supporters of Vladimir Putin and his United Russia party will score landslide victories across the country. This will not be because, as the Kremlin propaganda claims, the regime has widespread popular support—but because all contenders that could pose even potential danger to pro-Kremlin candidates have been removed from the ballot in advance. St. Petersburg, often described as Russia’s most…

  • Time for a Hybrid War Against Russia?

    Alexander J. Motyl
    25 Nov 2014 | 9:34 am
    Should Ukraine embark on a “hybrid war” against the Donbas enclave controlled by Russia and its proxies? One of Ukraine’s best military analysts, Yuri Butusov, the Russian-speaking editor of the Censor.net website, effectively argues that the answer is yes. Hybrid war is the term analysts apply to what many believe is Russia’s new way of war-making in southeastern Ukraine, one that employs a variety of means—propaganda, subversion, outright aggression, support for proxies, and the like—while remaining undeclared or denied. Butusov believes that the recent G-20 summit in Australia…
  • Does Ukraine’s Reform Plan Measure Up?

    Alexander J. Motyl
    21 Nov 2014 | 10:00 am
    The reform plan of Ukraine’s coalition government-in-the-making has received mixed reviews from a team of Ukraine experts affiliated with the policy discussion website VoxUkraine.  According to the analysis: We assign PASS to 3 sections out of 17, and CONDITIONAL PASS to 6 sections out of 17. We find that the draft does not have a coherent ideology and that many sections advocate Soviet style command economy approach to reforms, while only few sections address the structural causes of the problems in Ukraine. The good news is that the team rates three of 17 sections as excellent, six as…
  • Kiev Cuts Subsidies to Separatist-Controlled Enclaves

    Alexander J. Motyl
    14 Nov 2014 | 1:44 pm
    Even as Putin’s proxies in the Donbas enclave are preparing a major assault on the Ukrainian army, they are also evidently panicking. And all thanks to the Ukrainian government’s recent wise decision to stop funding enclave political institutions and providing pensions and other social benefits to enclave residents. All of sudden, the Russia-sponsored separatists appear to understand that the territory they control will soon become ungovernable. Here’s the evidence. On November 12th, the press center of the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) issued a statement supposedly…

    Alexander J. Motyl
    12 Nov 2014 | 9:41 am
    Ukraine recently witnessed one real election and one pseudo-election, but both may be turning points in the country’s history. The real election, to the Rada (Ukraine’s Parliament in Kyiv), took place on October 26th; the pseudo-election, in the Donbas enclave occupied by Russia and its proxies, took place on November 2nd. The former was fair and free and, as a referendum on popular attitudes, produced a clear victory for pro-Western, pro-democratic, and pro-Ukrainian parties. The latter was a staged event overseen by thugs with guns that, unsurprisingly, produced a clear victory for the…
  • Is Russia Artificial?

    Alexander J. Motyl
    7 Nov 2014 | 12:36 pm
    Most people would unthinkingly answer: of course not! Just look at all the Russians inside and outside Russia. Just look at the Russian state. They’re real, aren’t they? They’re organic. How could one possibly suggest Russia might be artificial? If you subscribe to these views, take a deep breath and hold on to your seat. The fact is that the Russian state is completely artificial, while the Russian nation is completely fragmented. Both are historically contingent. They’re as real—or unreal—as any non-Russian nation or state or as any recently constructed post-colonial state.
