    Seoul (AFP) – A top-ranking North Korean military official has threatened a nuclear strike on the White House and Pentagon after accusing Washington of raising military tensions on the Korean peninsula. The threat came from Hwang Pyong-So, director of the military’s General Political Bureau, during a speech to a large military rally in Pyongyang Sunday on the anniversary of the armistice that ended the 1950-53 Korean War. Hwang, who holds the rank of vice marshal in the Korean People’s Army, said a recent series of South Korea-US military drills, one of which included the…

    More than two and a half years since it crashed near Isola del Giglio, Italy, the wreck of the Costa Concordia was successfully refloated this week, and has begun its final journey—a four-day trip to a scrap yard in Genoa. The cruise ship capsized after striking a reef on January 13, 2012, killing 32 passengers and crew members. The complex salvage operation was the largest and most expensive in history. Gathered here are images, including several interior shots, of the ship's time near Isola del Giglio—from the initial disaster to today's towing away of the Costa Concordia. [30 photos]…

    Astro Physicists love to look for reasons current theories are correct. When data are obtained that do not fit a current theory, the race is on to come up with an explanation! The Universe is a big place, full of unknowns. Astronomers using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory have just catalogued a new one. "I couldn't believe my eyes," says Esra Bulbul of the Harvard Center for Astrophysics. "What we found, at first glance, could not be explained by known physics."

    28 Jul 2014 | 6:17 am
    The Muslim three-day Eid al-Fitr festival, marking the end of the month of Ramadan, began today in parts of the world where sightings of the new moon were made. During Ramadan, the Islamic month of fasting, devout Muslims must abstain from food, drink, and sex from dawn until sunset. The fast, one of the five pillars of Islam, is seen as a time for spiritual reflection, prayers, and charity. After sunset, Muslims traditionally break the fast by eating three dates, performing the Maghrib prayer, and sitting down to Iftar, the main evening meal, where communities and families gather together.

    Sunday was the deadliest day yet in the recent battles in the Gaza Strip, capping a bloody weekend where more than a hundred Palestinians were killed, as well as 18 Israeli soldiers, following an Israeli advance into Gaza. Israel said on Sunday it had expanded its ground offensive, and Hamas militants kept up rocket fire into the Jewish state with no sign of a diplomatic breakthrough to end the worst fighting between Israel and Hamas in two years. The New York Times reports the death toll reaching at least 425 since Israel's air offensive began on July 8. gathered here are photographs of the…

  • 6 cities that demolished freeways and dramatically improved everything

    Since most people live in San Francisco for a maximum of three years, few SF residents know that there used to be a big, ugly freeway running down the Embarcadero. For those of you who don’t know what the Embarcadero is, it’s the most beautiful, scenic road on the bay (within the confines of the city). Here’s what it looks like now: Stunning, right? It is, it really is. But here’s how it looked before they tore down the freeway in 1991: Ugh. Can you imagine? The ’89 quake did the freeway in, but people had been lobbying for its demolition for years before that.

To return the brick to its former powdery goodness, microwave it covered with a wet paper towel. Or you can just make your own brown sugar by processing white sugar and molasses. To make your baking a little more healthy, switch out the butter in cakes for avocado. To slide to the opposite end of the healthy spectrum, try making bread with melted ice cream and flour.

    Consciousness: understandable, but no less amazing.Alice Popkorn, CC BY-NCWe have no entirely satisfactory explanation for why a relentless stream of experiences normally fills our minds. On close examination, consciousness can seem truly miraculous and hopelessly ineffable. And, by this way of thinking, scientific research on consciousness would be pointless. The idea that conscious experiences lie outside the realm of scientific inquiry regularly appears in the press. If the origins of consciousness are supernatural or otherwise beyond human understanding, there’s no hope for addressing…

A recent study investigates the relationship between stress hormones and parental care in the banded mongoose, a small African mammal that lives in large family groups. The research team found that individual banded mongooses that spend a lot of time caring for pups lose weight and have elevated levels of stress hormones (glucocorticoids).

    In the United States, conventional wisdom holds that you should raise your child to be religious. Taking the kids to church is the default; leaving them home requires justification. Push parents to explain why they should pass on their religion—apart from a principled urge to keep the faith—and they’re likely to tell you studies prove that kids do better with religion than without it.

Republicans eager to spend less to feed the poor saw it as a win because it did just that. Democrats hailed it as a victory because it was only a fraction of the $40 billion in food stamp cuts Republicans had wanted.

    by Paul Kiel The law is clear: When far-flung members of the U.S. military are sued in civil court, judges must at least appoint lawyers for them. But that basic layer of protection hasn't provided much help to the hundreds of service members sued in Virginia courts each year by high-cost lender USA Discounters.

Fairfield is a small community where you know mostly everyone. Every single night there is a prayer service at Megan's home and will continue until she returns. There is a "Team Megan" group that recently held fundraisers to help establish a reward and to get her story across the country. I hope you don't read my story and think there isn't much you can do since she is a runaway. I just want to get her story out and across the…

    A former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has predicted that the end of the Peoples Democratic Party will be disgra ceful.  He alleged that the impeachment of some All Progressive Congress governors was an attempt to turn Nigeria into a one-party state but vowed that the PDP’s sorrow  over the impeachment would be short-lived.  Tinubu’s media aide, Sunday Dare, said this on his Facebook page in a note titled, “PDP, Jonathan are building on quicksand,” on Monday.  He said it was unfortunate that the PDP-led Federal Government had trivialised the attempt on…

    Want to learn the negotiation tactics of an MBA? I’ve cleaned up and distilled notes from the excellent negotiating course I took in MBA school taught by MIT lecturer John Richardson.   Preparation Always, do your homework. Success in negotiation is strongly correlated with time spent preparing. Preparing in a group helps; others will come up with things you didn’t. Be ambitious. There’s usually a connection between aspiration level and what people get. (Obviously, you can go too far, so look at your benchmarks.) It’s very valuable to have things you don’t want in a…

  • Dubai’s Kids Now Worth Their Weight (Loss) in Gold

    Laura Stampler
    29 Jul 2014 | 6:30 am
    Dubai has devised a rather unorthodox plan to incentivize its citizens to lose weight: Shed pounds, and we’ll give you some gold. And if you’re a child — we’ll give you double. Participants will be awarded one gram of gold, worth just under $42, for every kilogram (2.2 pounds) in weight lost. But if a family has a child over 2 but under 14 years of age, then they will receive 2g for every kilo lost. Only two children can participate per family, and the minimum weight loss is 2kg to be eligible. Last year the program focused principally on Dubai’s adult population,…

It is just that the word “Christian” comes with so much ugly baggage. Telling someone I’m a Christian means I must immediately follow it up with, “but not that kind of Christian.” It’s like saying, “Yeah, sure, these are some mind bogglingly ugly suitcases, but I’ve got the coolest stuff on the inside of them.

Yasser Abed Rabbo, secretary general of the Palestine Liberation Organization, said on Tuesday that Israel must bear the consequences if it rejects this call. There was no immediate comment from Hamas on the offer. Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev brushed aside the offer. He says that until Israel hears from Hamas directly, “it’s not serious.”

  • How to encourage recycling and feed stray animals at the same time!

    27 Jul 2014 | 6:28 am
    Istanbul, Turkey recently unveiled awesome new machines that help both the environment and needy animals. Each time a person recycles a plastic bottle in the designated receptacle, pet food is ejected into a bowl at the bottom so hungry stray animals have something to eat. So far, the machines have been a hit with residents. People who would normally toss bottles in a trash can might wait to carry the plastic a bit longer to dispose of it in the recycling bin now that they know they can assist animals. It’s a win-win scenario that doubles Turkish people's incentive to do the right thing.

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.

  • Germany demonstrates the ObamaCare endgame

    By <a href="/author/ryan-cooper" ><span class="byline">Ryan Cooper</span></a>
    29 Jul 2014 | 6:50 am
    ObamaCare is based on three interlocking ideas: guaranteed issue, meaning no one can be denied insurance coverage; an individual mandate to get that coverage, so healthy people stay in the risk pool; and subsidies to provide for those who can't afford to pay. There's a lot more to it than that, but those are the bedrock principles.Aaron Carroll has done another of his video series on how foreign countries do their healthcare, and this time Germany is up. It works more or less how ObamaCare will work if it can ever be implemented thoroughly throughout the country. It's a largely private…

    By West Wing Reports

    On This Day, 1958: Vowing that the United States would lead the space age, President Dwight Eisenhower signed an act creating the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, more commonly known as NASA. NASA was formed nine months after the Soviet Union beat the U.S. into space by launching the first satellite, Sputnik. Sputnik scared many Americans into thinking that the U.S. was falling behind foreign rivals; it spurred huge government investments in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Although the Soviets — in 1961 — beat the United States would, in 1969,…

    If you look hard enough, finding a vegan Caesar salad in Los Angeles isn't that hard to do. However, finding a good vegan Caesar salad often is. In fact, not many restaurants serve vegan Caesars worth mentioning, and of this select few, perhaps none are better than the plate called Dazzling at Cafe Gratitude.  The Dazzling does in fact dazzle, thanks to an oil-free dressing made from cashews, capers and ground pumpkin seeds.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]

  • Disney’s “Planes:” Fostering myths or spreading the good news?

    Ryan Maye Handy
    25 Jul 2014 | 4:15 pm
    When I first saw the trailer for Disney’s Planes: Fire and Rescue, I felt like a really giddy nerd. A so-called kid’s animation flick that bandies words like “SEAT” and “fireline” seemed too good to pass up—one of those movies you might see because it’s too ridiculous to be real. But last week when I rounded up a group of journalists to go see it—all of us having cut our teeth in the business covering Colorado wildfires—we realized Planes is a little bit more than a fire nerd’s dream movie. Sure, it was not a feat of cinematic genius. It was rife with racial, cultural…

    Tony Abbott has called for the ceasefire commitment to be honoured. AAP/Alan Porritt Polls out this week are showing Tony Abbott has got a lot of credit for his strong early response to the MH17 disaster. But he now faces the new challenge of managing the expectations of what can be done, when the ability of Australia and other countries to achieve the desired outcome is limited and in the hands of players with other priorities. For the third day the Dutch and Australian investigators have been prevented from getting to the wreckage. In a statement on Tuesday night the Australian Federal…
  • Why being conscious is a barrier to understanding consciousness

    Satoru Suzuki, Professor of Psychology at Northwestern University
    29 Jul 2014 | 4:39 am
    Consciousness: understandable, but no less amazing.Alice Popkorn, CC BY-NCWe have no entirely satisfactory explanation for why a relentless stream of experiences normally fills our minds. On close examination, consciousness can seem truly miraculous and hopelessly ineffable. And, by this way of thinking, scientific research on consciousness would be pointless. The idea that conscious experiences lie outside the realm of scientific inquiry regularly appears in the press. If the origins of consciousness are supernatural or otherwise beyond human understanding, there’s no hope for addressing…

It falls to him to decide whether telecom operators should be allowed to merge. His competition commission recently cleared Telefonica Deutschland’s acquisition of E-Plus in Germany.

    Who could be a bad parent to this face?Jennifer Sanderson, CC BYMany of us know from personal experience that raising children can be stressful, but a new study reveals that stress can be enough to affect the quality of parenting – in mongooses, at least. A recent study investigates the relationship between stress hormones and parental care in the banded mongoose, a small African mammal that lives in large family groups. The research team found that individual banded mongooses that spend a lot of time caring for pups lose weight and have elevated levels of stress hormones (glucocorticoids).

    Ho Chi Minh would be appalled if he could see Vietnam now. Well, perhaps not appalled—he was less doctrinaire than the likes of Vladimir Lenin and Fidel Castro, and even hard-line ideologues can become more flexible over time—but he certainly wouldn’t recognize it. The Doi Moi market reforms that began in 1986 (a mere eleven years after the fall of Saigon and national unification under the Communist Party) and a general slackening of state micromanagement have transformed the country out of all recognition. Theodore Dalrymple visited in the late 1980s when much of the old system was…

    Ben Birnbaum and Amir Tibon have written an exhaustively detailed and compulsively readable narrative of the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks that collapsed three months ago for The New Republic. We know how the story ends because it is already history, and most of us are cynical enough now that we knew how it would end before it even began, but it’s a fascinating and suspenseful read all the same because it looked for a while there like some kind of deal actually might have been struck. Benjamin Netanyahu and Mahmoud Abbas are both capable of being more flexible and reasonable than their…

    28 Jul 2014 | 9:17 am
    Israel was shocked by Secretary of State John Kerry’s diplomatic maneuvers regarding Gaza. David Horovitz, the editor of the Times of Israel, a man who takesmiddle-of-the-road positions and chooses words carefully, called it a “betrayal” of an ally. Kerry snubbed Israel, Egypt, and the Palestinian Authority of Mahmoud Abbas, closeted himself with Turkey and Qatar, Hamas’s two main Islamist Sunni backers, and produced a proposal that, unlike the Egyptian cease-fire plan already on the table, incorporated most of Hamas’s demands while ignoring Israel’s, notably Israel’s need to…

    Lewis Hamilton showed no remorse as he remarked after the Hungarian GP about his surprise that his Mercedes team ordered him to slow down to let team mate and championship rival Nico Rosberg pass him despite both challenging for the win. Hamilton was ahead and was all set to run to the end of the race on his medium tyres, when the call came through to give up track position to his rival. The bizarre order was based on the basis that Rosberg still had to pit and Hamilton would retake the position in a few laps time. It did of course transpire that Hamilton was only just able to hold off…

  • Millennials don’t want to invest in the stock market

    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. Non-millennials, on the other hand, hold only 23 percent of their assets…

    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…

    Gordon G. Chang
    22 Jul 2014 | 5:39 am
    “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. The top diplomats of the remaining two members of the P5+1, the…

    Shi Yinhong, an international relations professor at Beijing’s Renmin University, has just issued a warning that Chinese leaders will not be deterred from engaging in increasingly provocative conduct. “There could be some tactical change in the direction of moderation but I cannot see any fundamental change in strategic orientation,” he told John Garnaut of the Sydney Morning Herald. 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

    Gordon G. Chang
    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…

  • Welcome to Vietnam

    Michael J. Totten
    28 Jul 2014 | 6:47 pm
    Ho Chi Minh would be appalled if he could see Vietnam now. Well, perhaps not appalled—he was less doctrinaire than the likes of Vladimir Lenin and Fidel Castro, and even hard-line ideologues can become more flexible over time—but he certainly wouldn’t recognize it. The Doi Moi market reforms that began in 1986 (a mere eleven years after the fall of Saigon and national unification under the Communist Party) and a general slackening of state micromanagement have transformed the country out of all recognition. Theodore Dalrymple visited in the late 1980s when much of the old system was…
  • The Death of the Latest Middle East Peace Process

    28 Jul 2014 | 11:55 am
    Ben Birnbaum and Amir Tibon have written an exhaustively detailed and compulsively readable narrative of the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks that collapsed three months ago for The New Republic. We know how the story ends because it is already history, and most of us are cynical enough now that we knew how it would end before it even began, but it’s a fascinating and suspenseful read all the same because it looked for a while there like some kind of deal actually might have been struck. Benjamin Netanyahu and Mahmoud Abbas are both capable of being more flexible and reasonable than their…

    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
    21 Jul 2014 | 11:42 am
    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…

    Vladimir Kara-Murza
    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…

    17 Jun 2014 | 8:56 am
    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…
  • Kremlin Prepares Election Farce in St. Petersburg

    6 Jun 2014 | 10:48 am
    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…
  • Europe's Nationalist Right Votes for Putin

    Vladimir Kara-Murza
    28 May 2014 | 8:17 am
    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…
  • Crimean Tartars Remember Exile—in Kyiv

    Vladimir Kara-Murza
    20 May 2014 | 11:05 am
    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…

    Alexander J. Motyl
    18 Jul 2014 | 12:00 pm
    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…
  • Contradictions Define Kremlin Apologists

    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…

    Alexander J. Motyl
    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

    Victor Nechita
    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…
