    A group of nearly 200 retired generals and admirals sent a letter to Congress on Wednesday urging lawmakers to reject the Iran nuclear agreement, which they say threatens national security.The letter is the latest in a blizzard of missives petitioning Congress either to support or oppose the agreement with Iran, which would lift sanctions if Iran pared back its nuclear program. Letters have come from ad hoc groupings of rabbis, nuclear scientists, arms-control and nonproliferation experts — and now, retired senior military officers, many of whom have worked in the White House during various…

    31 Aug 2015 | 11:09 am

Multiple companies are producing varied versions of the device, tailored mostly to smartphone users. These sometimes-unwieldy extenders have been labeled as nuisances by some, especially in crowded public spaces, and have been banned in many museums, stadiums, and theme parks. Collected here are recent images of selfie sticks in use around the world, from high in the sky above China to the shores of…

Many music history nerds know that the harpsichord was a popular instrument in Baroque compositions; perhaps the banjo works well because it has a smiliar(ish) sound.

In “adventure” playgrounds, a new kind of playground in Japan and Europe, kids are given matches, hammers, nails, saws, wood boards, and old mattresses to make fires, build things and destroy them. Sound crazy? Our two guests this hour want to bring these types of spaces to America, where they believe playgrounds  are too confining and so safety oriented that they don’t allow kids to take risks,…

  • Idris Elba too 'street' to play Bond? Why the word sparked a racism debate

    Olivette Otele, Senior Lecturer in History at Bath Spa University
    2 Sep 2015 | 5:39 am
    'Rough'? Really? Facundo Arrizabalaga/EPAAuthor Anthony Horowitz, the man charged with writing the latest James Bond novel, has claimed Idris Elba, widely tipped to be the next actor to play 007 on the big screen, is “too street” for the role. Horowitz told the Mail on Sunday: For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. It’s not a colour issue. I think he is probably a bit too ‘street’ for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah. Horowitz was quick to add that several other black actors could have also played Bond, and has since issued an apology about his…
  • Snorted, injected or smoked? It can affect a drug's addictiveness

    Anne-Noël Samaha, Associate Professor of Pharmacology at Université de Montréal
    2 Sep 2015 | 2:51 am
    Addiction isn't just about how much of a drug you take. It's also about how you take it. Drugs via www.shutterstock.com.Many people use drugs, but not everyone becomes addicted. Why? Part of the reason comes down to how you take a drug. Are you smoking, injecting, snorting or swallowing it? That dictates how much drug gets into the brain, how fast, and how often brain levels of drug rise and fall. These are pharmacokinetic variables, and they reflect how your body absorbs and distributes a drug. For instance, if you smoke a joint, brain levels of cannabis will both rise and decline…

    Boaz Dvir, Senior Lecturer in Film and Journalism at Pennsylvania State University
    2 Sep 2015 | 2:49 am
    Israelis protest for Jonathan Pollard's release. Ammar Awad/REUTERSSeveral colleagues have asked if I see any similarities between Jonathan Pollard, a US Navy Field Operational Intelligence Office employee who’ll be released from an American prison November 21 after serving 30 years for giving Israel classified documents, and the American members of an illegal 1948 operation to save the newborn Jewish state. Initially, I scoffed at drawing such a comparison. Most Americans who learn about the secret operation that brought desperately needed weapons to Israel consider its leader, Al…

    The summer after my senior year of high school, I took an EMT class. I thought I might become a doctor, and training to be an emergency medical technician seemed like the best way to ease into a life of saving lives. It turns out I was not cut out to be a doctor—something I discovered in an ER when I was assisting a man who had sliced his hand open on an aluminum foil container. As I watched the blood pool under his hand while the doctor stitched up his gash, I decided pre-med wasn’t for me.

    Google on Wednesday said it would begin penalizing the search rankings of websites that use pop-up mobile ads asking users to install an app, the latest move by the company that could have a big impact on advertisers, publishers and other content creators. In a post on its Webmaster Central Blog, Google said that app install ads which block a large amount of content from users and prompt them to install various applications are a big no-no in their book. “Our analysis shows that it is not a good search experience and can be frustrating for users because they are expecting to see the…

    Few schoolchildren make it through a dozen years of schooling without being assigned some variation of the “What I Did on My Summer Vacation” essay. During the summer of 1947, the editors of LIFE Magazine decided to help two boys prepare to write their essays by dispatching Alfred Eisenstaedt to Louisiana, Mo., to illustrate their summer pastimes with his camera. Pres and Mac, as the 12-year-old childhood friends were nicknamed, lived 75 miles up the Mississippi River from St. Louis, and they spent much of their time in swimming holes and haylofts. Aside from Pres’ paper…

    31 Aug 2015 | 5:58 am
    An international group of researchers have found that food craving activates different brain networks between obese and normal weight patients. This indicates that the tendency to want food may be 'hard-wired' into the brain of overweight patients, becoming a functional brain biomarker. Obesity is one of the most difficult problems facing modern society. Treating obesity is a health priority, but most efforts (aside from bariatric surgery) have met with little success. In part, this is because the mechanisms associated with the desire to eat are poorly understood. Recently,…

With a smoother, sans serif typeface, it's built to shrink legibly to fit the smallest screens. But the bigger story is its animated interaction language—the fact that it can morph into a series of dots that can convey anything from "Google is listening" to "Google is searching for nearby ice cream."Read Full Story

This important debate considers whether these attitudes to voluntary euthanasia in the Benelux countries demonstrate a general inability to draw a line the sand in defence of human life? What does patient autonomy mean when kids are regarded as legally able to choose death but incapable of making moral decisions about how they live? The debate raises serious reservations…

On the eve of Egypt's effort to close off smugglers' supply tunnels into the Palestinian territory, a U.N. report says that economic conditions in Gaza are so bad that the entire region could be "uninhabitable" by 2020. A stretch of Palestine wedged between Israel, Egypt, and the Mediterranean Sea, the Gaza Strip is one of the most densely populated regions of the world with 1.8 million residents living in a mere 225 square miles of land.

    2 Sep 2015 | 4:46 am
    Some Republicans in Congress are vowing to force another government shutdown unless the fiscal 2016 federal budget defunds Planned Parenthood. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) isn't among them, Reuters reports. On Tuesday, McConnell told Kentucky TV station WYMT that conservatives "just don’t have the votes to get the outcome that we'd like," and he's not willing to shut down the government. "The president has made it very clear he's not going to sign any bill that includes defunding of Planned Parenthood," McConnell said, "so that's another issue that awaits a new president…
  • CNN changes criteria for GOP debate, likely sending Carly Fiorina to prime time

    2 Sep 2015 | 4:29 am
    On Tuesday, CNN changed the criteria for its upcoming Republican presidential debate on September 16, making room for former HP CEO Carly Fiorina to squeeze onto the big stage. The original criteria would have used an average of poll numbers from between July 16 and September 10 to narrow the field of candidates at the prime-time debate, reducing the impact of Fiorina's widely praised performance at the "kid's table" on Fox News in August. CNN will now accept any candidate who ranks in the top 10 in polling between August 6 and September 10, giving Fiorina a much healthier shot at the main…

But I do know his vision of the world: it is one of reality. Some people contest the way Salgado interprets the world; they might challenge how much truth there is in his images of tribal people or of the harshness of war. But I believe there is truth in his photos, which always have a human spirit to them.

  • In Major Move, Small Oil and Gas Fields to be Auctioned to Private Firms

    Alka Anand Singh
    2 Sep 2015 | 2:05 am
    In a hefty economic reform, the government has announced that it will, for the first time, auction 69 small and marginal oil and gas fields surrendered by state-run explorers like ONGC. The government hopes to raise 70,000 crores from the sale, said Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan. The government expects private companies to boost output from the areas that hold resources of more than $10 billion. The minister expects bidding to start in three months for the fields that were given up by ONGC and Oil India as they were uneconomical due to size, geography and state-set low sale prices. India,…

    Nassau, Bahamas – Bahamas Press is now tracking details of one of the country’s latest homicides, which occurred on Saturday morning around 2 am, and once again we make the point that the Law of Retribution has a funny way of showing up in the homicide cases unfolding in the country. The victim was a man who goes by the name John Shander, 64-years-old. A former singer who grew up around the Wulff Road area, he had become an mechanic later in life. He was known for his knowledge of the streets and, back in the day, Shander was no saint. We remember him as far back as the late 1970s when he…

We have become a nation of ‘no manners people’ who have no regard for our fellow citizens. It is as though we have tossed out of our psyche things like kindness, respect, manners and civility.

    This year I gave up my gym membership. Why? Not because I’m too lazy to exercise. In fact, I like exercise, need exercise. Without a good amount of it, I get the heebie-jeebies. Even with it, I still get the heebies, but at least that’s better. Anyway, what I’m too lazy to do is go to the gym. It’s just too much of a hassle to drive there, go to the locker, remember the combination, change clothes, wait your turn for the elliptical, the treadmill, or whatever, all the while with the heebie-jeebies unassuaged.See the rest of the story at newyorker.comRelated:My Nephew Has Some…

    Tuesday was another nervy day on Wall Street: the Dow closed down almost four hundred and seventy points, or about three per cent. The immediate issue, once again, was China, which by some measures is now the world’s second-largest economy. In Beijing, the government released a set of figures indicating that output from the country’s enormous manufacturing sector is declining. Another new statistic showed that the Chinese services sector, which has been growing pretty strongly, is now exhibiting some weakness, too.See the rest of the story at newyorker.comRelated:Can the Chinese…
  • Twilight Racing at New York’s Last Remaining Velodrome

    In the years before the Second World War, thousands of track-cycling fans packed stadium-sized velodromes in Harlem and Coney Island to watch celebrity bicyclists pedal around oval tracks at speeds of more than forty miles per hour. Today there is only one velodrome standing in all of New York. At twilight on most Wednesdays during the summer, dozens of cyclists roll out to Kissena Park, in Flushing, Queens, to race on what was once described as “the worst track in America.” Designed by Robert Moses, in the nineteen-sixties, the track has been poorly maintained, leaving the racing…
  • Miley Cyrus’s Quest for Realness

    Amanda Petrusich
    1 Sep 2015 | 1:28 pm
    “Yeah, I smoke pot / Yeah, I love peace” is how Miley Cyrus opens her new record, “Miley Cyrus and the Dead Petz.” Her burly, overfed voice is soon placed in chorus with itself: “Do it! Do it!” she encourages. As far as declarations of autonomy go, this is lamentably low-stakes. Cyrus’s defensiveness is unfounded, nearly aspirational, a tirade against some internally conjured enemy who hates weed, hates peace. It’s a rebellion against a status quo so unrecognizable as not to register.See the rest of the story at newyorker.comRelated:When Politicians Make PlaylistsFive…

    Banks are offering great deals on new mortgages, so long as they have plenty of cash and are buying property in the right areas. That’s according to the Managing Director of housing finance institution Hypo, Ari Pauna.Margins on new loans have recently been around 0.75 to 0.85 percent on top of the reference rate, for solvent customers buying in the capital city region or Tampere.“Next year we could get even closer to 0.5 percent,” writes Pauna. “It’s pointless to claim otherwise.”Banks do sometimes try to open negotiations with even their better customers at levels above 1…

    2 Sep 2015 | 1:56 am
    Some of Finland’s 317 municipalities have never taken in a quota refugee, while some others have accommodated thousands over the years. That discrepancy is down to the voluntary nature of refugee settlement in Finland, which allows local councils to refuse any refugees at all if they don’t want to take any.Finland’s refugee system is built on quotas, which allow UN-certified refugees to apply to be resettled in Finland. Those people have until recently outnumbered those who are granted asylum in Finland after applying on arrival. The refugees are selected while in UN camps abroad, then…

  • Snorted, injected or smoked? It can affect a drug's addictiveness

    Anne-Noël Samaha, Associate Professor of Pharmacology at Université de Montréal
    2 Sep 2015 | 2:51 am
    Addiction isn't just about how much of a drug you take. It's also about how you take it. Drugs via www.shutterstock.com.Many people use drugs, but not everyone becomes addicted. Why? Part of the reason comes down to how you take a drug. Are you smoking, injecting, snorting or swallowing it? That dictates how much drug gets into the brain, how fast, and how often brain levels of drug rise and fall. These are pharmacokinetic variables, and they reflect how your body absorbs and distributes a drug. For instance, if you smoke a joint, brain levels of cannabis will both rise and decline…

Initially, I scoffed at drawing such a comparison. Most Americans who learn about the secret operation that brought desperately needed weapons to Israel consider its leader, Al…

  • ISIS Wages Cultural Genocide in Palmyra

    Michael J. Totten
    1 Sep 2015 | 2:09 pm
    They finally did it. The bastards destroyed Palmyra’s Temple of Bel. We all knew it was coming in May when ISIS conquered the ancient Roman-era city an hour’s drive east of the Syrian city of Homs. At first nothing happened. They promised they’d leave Palmyra alone, that they wouldn’t lay waste to its offensive pre-Islamicness they way they wrecked the Iraqi cities of Hatra and Nimrud.  I almost wrote that I was wrong after I predicted Palmyra’s destruction in City Journal, but then I thought, no, this is ISIS we’re talking about. Of course they’re going blow up the city.

    Monday, China Central Television, the state broadcaster, carried the “confession” of a weary Wang Xiaolu. The journalist from Caijing Magazine, a prominent financial publication, admitted to adding his “own subjective judgment” to information he obtained “through private channels” about the central government’s stock rescue plan. Wang’s crime, in Beijing’s eyes, was to pen a July 20th article stating that the China Securities Regulatory Commission was considering halting intervention in the Chinese stock market.

Belarus, Cuba, Egypt, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mexico, Mongolia, Pakistan, Serbia, Tajikistan, and Russia will each send about 75 marchers. Afghanistan, Cambodia, Fiji, Laos, Vanuatu, and Venezuela will contribute about seven troops each. The 17 countries, Beijing said, will chip in about 1,000 soldiers.

    By now you know that a Russian military kangaroo court sentenced Ukrainian film director Oleh Sentsov and Ukrainian civic activist Oleksandr Kolchenko to, respectively, 20 and 10 years imprisonment on trumped-up charges of terrorism. Amnesty International and other human rights groups immediately responded with protests, while Amnesty’s press secretary in Ukraine compared the trial to Stalinist show trials. I hate to quibble, but the more accurate comparison is with the Soviet trials of dissidents in the 1960s–1980s. Stalinist trials might entail final statements by the accused, but they…

    You don’t need a weapon of mass destruction to ruin a city. Well, maybe sometimes you do. You’re not getting rid of New York City without one. But some of the world’s cities are so vulnerable, so precariously perched above an abyss, that a single bloodthirsty nutjob with a rifle can bring it to its knees in a matter of minutes. Look at Tunisia’s resort city of Sousse on the Mediterranean. Two months ago, an ISIS-inspired nutcase named Seifeddine Rezgui strolled up the beach with a Kalashnikov in his hand and murdered 38 people, most of them tourists from Britain.

    Hundreds of thousands of people are standing by to evacuate their homes after scientists warned a huge volcanic eruption is likely nearby. Around 600,000 residents of the Japanese city of Kagoshima are on alert after seismologists voiced concerns that a rain of fire and stones could fall on the city if the volcano of Sakurajima erupts. Sakurajima last erupted in 2013, killing an estimated 63 people. Following the warning, a plume of volcanic ash has been seen rising from the crater and officials have confirmed a ‘small eruption’ has taken place. At night, the sky above the volcano glows…

    Record numbers of migrants seeking a new life are breaching the borders of Europe. The European Union reports more than 107,000 migrants arrived in Europe in July – that is more than 3,450 a day. This flood of refugees is coming from North Africa and the Middle East on a makeshift fleet of rubber dinghies, small boats and ships. Many thousands are paying traffickers for passage and the death toll of those arriving in squalid or inadequate vessels and boats is rising by the day. Europe is struggling to cope with the surge in migrants, with Greece and Italy bearing the brunt of the problem as…
  • Will EU Stop QROPS Public Pension Transfer Ban?

    The latest Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme (QROPS) quandary for the government highlights the problems of transferring a pension overseas. Not only do governments regularly change the QROPS rules – when they do they tend to make mistakes that require sticking plasters to cover the mistakes a few weeks or months later. QROPS have regularly suffered from this issue. The latest foul-up comes from the Treasury drafting a ban on the transfer of unfunded public pensions to QROPS from April 6, 2015. The fear was civil servants and public sector workers would rush to shift their…

He was also the host of the massive show “Fear Factor” in the US and his own show on the SyFy Channel named “Joe Rogan Questions Everything”.

    Sprint legend Usain Bolt sped ahead of rival Justin Gaitlin to take the big head-to-head 200m World Championship gold in Beijing. A ferocious late burst of speed left Gaitlin struggling to keep up with Bolt, who led from the gun. Defending the 200m title after already taking the 100m crown, Jamaican Bolt cemented his place as a legend by retaining both World Championship titles. The 200m was billed as must-win for American Gaitlin, who has failed to fulfil early promise in his career which was then mired in controversy over substance-enhanced performances. If he was to beat Bolt, this was the…

    If you watched the American Embassy’s reopening ceremony in Cuba on television, or saw some of the photographs, you may have noticed dozens of bare flagpoles in the background. There’s a story behind that. After the US and Cuba dissolved relations during the Cold War, the former American Embassy building became the US Interests Section. Not a lot went on in that building since our two nations didn’t have normal relations, but even mutually hostile governments have to talk to each other once in a while, especially if they’re neighbors, so the US posted diplomatic staff there. And in…

    The American flag was raised over Cuba this weekend for the first time in 54 years at the official reopening of the US Embassy in Havana. Three of the Marines who lowered the flag as young men in 1961 ran it up the flagpole as old men. Diplomatic relations between our two nations have been officially restored. This is controversial in the United States, to say the least, but look: Cuba is not Iran, and it is not Syria. It certainly isn’t the Islamic State’s psychopathic “caliphate” in Raqqa. Nothing bad is going to happen to the United States because we’re talking to Cuba again.

The article by Larry Cohler-Esses is interesting and worth reading, but it’s also a bit on the naïve side. Reporting from police states on a journalist visa doesn’t always take nerves of steel (such countries are generally not dangerous places for foreign visitors if permission to work there has been granted), but it does require heavy doses of skepticism. “Though I had to work with a government fixer and translator,” he writes,…

    By now you know that a Russian military kangaroo court sentenced Ukrainian film director Oleh Sentsov and Ukrainian civic activist Oleksandr Kolchenko to, respectively, 20 and 10 years imprisonment on trumped-up charges of terrorism. Amnesty International and other human rights groups immediately responded with protests, while Amnesty’s press secretary in Ukraine compared the trial to Stalinist show trials. I hate to quibble, but the more accurate comparison is with the Soviet trials of dissidents in the 1960s–1980s. Stalinist trials might entail final statements by the accused, but they…
  • Anti-Donbas Sentiment Growing in Ukraine

    Alexander J. Motyl
    21 Aug 2015 | 3:14 pm
    Is Ukrainian public opinion turning toward getting rid of the Russian-occupied Donbas enclave? The evidence is beginning to look persuasive. A year ago, the suggestion that Ukraine would be better off without the Russian-occupied bits of Luhansk and Donetsk provinces provoked cries of treason. No more. The view has become legitimate, and it may even be winning the day. A May 2015 public opinion survey by the Sofia Center for Social Research showed that 61.8 percent of Ukrainians would be willing to give up the occupied territories in exchange for peace. Only 22.9 percent supported continuing…
  • Putin Destroys Tons of Food Imports. What's Next?

    Alexander J. Motyl
    19 Aug 2015 | 10:44 am
    Russian President Vladimir Putin’s wanton destruction of hundreds of tons of Western food products has provoked a storm of criticism. The outrage is justified, but, no less important, his bizarre behavior gives us an opportunity to test some of the theories that have been applied to Russia’s behavior in the last two years. Start with realism, the theory of geopolitics, national interests, and hard facts, as preached by John Mearsheimer, Henry Kissinger, and Stephen Cohen. Realism explains Russia’s annexation of the Crimea and war in eastern Ukraine as a defensive measure made in…

    The following is an interview with Thomas D. Grant, senior research fellow of Wolfson College and senior associate of the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law, both at the University of Cambridge. MOTYL: Your recently published book, Aggression against Ukraine, argues that Russia’s annexation of the Crimea and war in eastern Ukraine is a challenge to international law and global public order at large. Has Russia effectively destroyed the postwar security architecture in Europe? GRANT: One hopes that there is still time to save the post-1945 system of public order in Europe. The Soviet…
  • Ukraine’s August Blues

    Alexander J. Motyl
    4 Aug 2015 | 10:16 am
    August is when most of Europe closes down, as people dash to their country homes or head for resorts. Beaches overflow; fun becomes mandatory. A perfect tan is all that matters. What a wonderful time to forget that the war in eastern Ukraine will continue to rage, perhaps even intensify. Vladimir Putin’s terrorists, commandoes, mercenaries, and troops will keep on violating the Minsk 2 accords by shelling Ukrainian territory and killing Ukrainian citizens and soldiers. Yesterday, four soldiers lost their lives. The day before it was, I think, one. The day before that—none. The day before…

  • On Structuring an Earn-out

    Site Administrator
    31 Aug 2015 | 7:18 am
    As you all know, most deals fall apart because companies CEOs/owners (and/or the investors already in the “deal”) are not realistic when placing a value on their respective companies. When there’s a valuation difference between what a buyer thinks a business is worth and what the seller expects to profit, an earn-out can bridge that gap.   Here’s a few pointers on how to make a deal that’s good for both parties.   What’s the value of your business? That depends on whom you ask. Ask potential buyers, especially when they’re being cautious in tough economic times, and it…
  • Legal Extraterritoriality As An Assault on Capitalism

    Site Administrator
    28 Aug 2015 | 7:24 am
    Is the federal government trying to subvert American capitalism by pushing for extraterritorial application of American criminal law as a way to induce the flight of capital, and the capital classes, from the United States?   Is this theory so radical? Little else explains why federal government lawyers are making certain arguments to defend the fraud convictions of two Wall Street financiers – Ross Mandell and Adam Harrington of Sky Capital — against their appeal. Our government now argues that “criminal statutes have extraterritorial reach so long as the nature of the crime…
  • Oil Geopolitics and Iran

    Site Administrator
    17 Aug 2015 | 7:25 am
    There has been much fuss lately as to the huge impact a deal with Iran will have on oil prices globally.   I personally see the near-term impact on oil markets likely to be far less significant than most oil analysts predict, despite Iran’s large natural gas and oil reserves.   The bottom line is that a deal with Iran would likely add only about 500,000 barrels/day to the 90-million-barrel daily oil market over the next 12 months. This would be a non-trivial amount, but clearly not a “game changer”.   The baseline is for prices to return to about $70 for a barrel of…
