    Small hands need small sporting equipment ... but what about less bouncy balls? PJMixer/Flickr, CC BY-NC-NDSmaller footballs, lighter tennis racquets and mini playing fields: it makes sense to have these for children, right? Well, in recent years there’s been strong opposition against children playing modified sport, particularly in American tennis.

    Most people overestimate the benefits and underestimate the harms of medical intervention. Barbara M./Flickr, CC BY“It might do me some good and it won’t hurt to give it a go.” How often have you heard a phrase like this? Most people have naïve optimism about medical care.

    Not long ago, my spaceship ran out of fuel, 150 million miles from the nearest gas station. She is the European Space Agency’s Venus Express, launched in 2005 on a two-year mission. She’s lasted more than eight. For the past year she’s been using the very last dregs of her fuel to plunge through the upper atmosphere, but now she’s out of gas; her orbit will decay until she ends as a spectacular fireball shooting through the cloudy skies of Venus. I started out as a student working on one of the Venus Express instruments, and since then have been a member of one of her science teams,…

  • In Alabama, A Public Hospital Serves the Poor — with Lawsuits

    ProPublica
    22 Dec 2014 | 9:00 am
    by Paul Kiel More than a century ago, Alabama enshrined a basic protection in the state’s constitution shielding its poorest citizens from being forced to pay debts they couldn’t afford. But a public hospital in the mostly rural southeast corner of the state has found a way around the law. Before patients can receive treatment at Southeast Alabama Medical Center, they must sign a form waiving that legal protection, clearing the way for the facility to seize funds from their pay or bank accounts to cover medical debts.

    After the raid of a violent, multistate dog-fighting ring, 22 people face charges and hundreds of dogs are in shelters, authorities said Monday.

The indictments came last week after a yearlong investigation. Authorities raided 18 locations in the Baltimore area and a compound in West Virginia. The ring also had links in New York and in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina, where several alleged members were linked to a…

    22 Dec 2014 | 3:00 pm
    Being a conman probably isn’t as easy as Will Smith makes it look in the new trailer for Focus. When he’s not busy being a professional thief, Smith’s Nicky Spurgeon also manages to find time to teach Margot Robbie’s Jess Barrett how to grift like a pro, and their professional relationship quickly comes to resemble an old married couple–even when their lives are in danger. Focus releases in theaters on Feb. 27, 2015, but it won’t be the last team-up for Smith and Robbie. The two are also set to star together in Warner Bros.’ 2016 DC Comics film…

    From Der Spiegel Magazine A new cluster of start-ups in Germany is seeking to exploit the digital revolution that is gripping the medical sector. In the future, we are likely to use apps that can measure our heartbeat or analyze potential skin conditions to augment normal healthcare.

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

A new analysis shows that Dolly Varden, a species of char common in southeast Alaska, adjust their migrations so they can keep feasting on a key food source - salmon eggs - even as shifts in climate altered the timing of salmon spawning.The resiliency of species to climate change may depend on how well they adapt to climate-driven changes in their food and habitat, such as altered growth of plants they feed on. A mismatch in timing between predators and the availability of prey could cause some species to lose access to food. But others such as…

Still, environmental groups are counting the Department of Health’s report that “[high volume hydraulic fracturing] should not proceed in NYS” as a victory.

    New Delhi: In a mixed pattern of trading, gold prices declined by Rs 45 to Rs 27,265 per 10 grams at the bullion market on Monday, owing to slackened demand from jewelers at prevailing levels even as metal rise in global markets. Silver, however, found fresh buying support from industrial users and recovered by Rs 760 to Rs 36,900 per kg. Bullion traders said easing demand from jewellers and retailers at current level mainly attributed the fall in gold prices. They said, however, a better trend overseas as the dollar fell from a five-year high amid signs of rising physical demand, capped the…

The clerk had already won the case in District Court, and that decision was what Gigantti was trying to appeal.”The Supreme Court found that this salesclerk’s sales quota was very good in terms of euros sold, but he was allegedly selling the ‘wrong products’,” lawyer Liisa Aro from Service Union…

    Over the past two years, SEOMoz became Moz, ThunderSEO became ThunderActive, and seOverflow became Inflow. Although I do not work for these companies, I would argue that they — and likely many more — have been rebranding themselves by removing affiliations to “SEO” and instead associating themselves with good, old-fashioned “marketing.” The reason? The phrase “SEO” has become tainted with an association with dubious efforts to rank highly in Google with “linkbuilding” and other tricks that increasingly — and thankfully — no longer work. Nutshell: In 2015 and beyond,…

    14 Dec 2014 | 12:38 am
    Build, promote, and publicize a website that delights its target audience. Everything else will fall into place.

As far as we can know, nothing is arbitrary about the components of Google’s algorithm. Every ranking factor is there for a…

    Ukraine may finally have a cabinet able to introduce radical reforms. For the first time in independent Ukraine’s history, its ministers are young and Western. Youth matters, as it’s a measure of the degree to which individuals are still captives of the Soviet past. Western attitudes and experience also matter, as they presumably reflect the willingness and ability of the ministers to embark on pro-Western reforms.   The composition of the new cabinet was announced on December 2nd. Most commentators focused on the fact that three of the ministers were foreigners—an American, a…

    It was bound to happen eventually: The United States and Cuba have decided to restore diplomatic relations after treating each other as enemy states since the 1960s. Some are elated and some are despondent. Both sides can make a strong case.   I visited Cuba near the end of last year and returned home with mixed feelings about the US embargo. Cuba is in no way a strategic or military threat to the United States. If diplomatic relations hadn’t already been severed a long time ago, Washington would have no reason to suddenly sever them now. In that sense, the embargo is an anachronism, a…

    The poor old pension industry in the UK and those who advise on it seem slightly confused, and perhaps even a touch disgruntled. And who could blame them? For decades they were able to ride the crest of an unchallenged wave, fantastically covered by pension rules meaning that investors (their clients) had no option other than to agree to place their savings into stagnant annuities. But once the forced annuity option was done away with, financial advisers and annuity providers must’ve feared the worst. Financial advisers would need to learn some new advice, and annuities as a product were…

Brand has more or less taken it upon himself to become the spokesperson for the disenchanted generation, however judging by those that choose to share his rants on Facebook, his appeal stretches only as far as those with no more than a passing interest in politics, and a penchant for his thesaurus recited vocabulary.

On Wednesday, New York’s health and environmental commissioners moved forward with an effort to ban fracking across the state citing unresolved health issues, grave environmental concerns and uncertainties surrounding the controversial natural gas drilling practice. New York, which overlies part of the Marcellus shale, one of the largest natural gas deposits in the United States has also led to a drilling boom in nearby…

  • India’s ‘Annihilator of Enemies’ Takes to the Sea

    Gordon G. Chang
    17 Dec 2014 | 2:00 pm
    On Monday, Indian Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar approved sea trials of the INS Arihant, his country’s first indigenously built nuclear-powered submarine. The boat, which first slipped into harbor water in July 2009, is designed to launch ballistic missiles carrying nuclear warheads. “Arihant” means “annihilator of enemies.” The Indian Navy already operates a nuclear-powered sub. INS Chakra, however, is a Russian Akula-2, leased for 10 years from Moscow and commissioned in April 2012. This “attack” boat, designed primarily to kill other submarines, carries only conventional…
  • Obama Cites Dangers in Xi’s Consolidation of Power

    Gordon G. Chang

    At the beginning of the month, President Obama, in comments to the Business Roundtable in Washington, displayed his command of Chinese Communist Party politics. “He has consolidated power faster and more comprehensively than probably anybody since Deng Xiaoping,” he said of his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping. “And everybody’s been impressed by his … clout inside of China after only a year and a half or two years.” “There are dangers in that,” Obama then remarked. Yes, there are, and it was important for the president to have said so, even if it was unusual for the leader of…
  • Taiwan Voters Reject China-Centric Policies

    Taiwan President Ma Ying-jeou bowed for 10 seconds Wednesday as he confirmed his resignation as chairman of the ruling Kuomintang, taking responsibility for the party’s worst drubbing since 1949, when Chiang Kai-shek fled to the island after defeat in the Chinese civil war. On Saturday, voters thoroughly rejected the KMT, as the organization is known, in elections for 11,130 local posts across the island. Voters turned down KMT candidates in seats that had been safely “blue” for decades. It was not so much that the electorate had gone “green”—the color adopted by the opposition…

    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…

    “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…

  • Cuba: To Embargo or Not

    Michael J. Totten
    17 Dec 2014 | 2:17 pm
    It was bound to happen eventually: The United States and Cuba have decided to restore diplomatic relations after treating each other as enemy states since the 1960s. Some are elated and some are despondent. Both sides can make a strong case.   I visited Cuba near the end of last year and returned home with mixed feelings about the US embargo. Cuba is in no way a strategic or military threat to the United States. If diplomatic relations hadn’t already been severed a long time ago, Washington would have no reason to suddenly sever them now. In that sense, the embargo is an anachronism, a…
  • The Sydney Gunman’s Failed Message

    Michael J. Totten
    15 Dec 2014 | 9:54 am
    A radical Islamist seized hostages in a café yesterday in Sydney, Australia. Sixteen hours later police shot him dead. At least two of his captives died and several others are seriously injured. Shortly after he took over the café, he forced some of the hostages to hold a black flag up to the glass for news cameras to photograph. It is known variously as the black standard, the jihad flag, and the Salafist flag. It’s similar in some ways to the Saudi flag. It’s also similar to the black flag of the Abbasid caliphate. Anybody who flies it is potentially dangerous. Salafism is a…

    Michael J. Totten
    10 Dec 2014 | 10:35 am
    Some people and organizations who claim to champion human rights don’t give a flying fork about the genuine article and would rather slam Western democracies and their allies than take an unflinching look at those who binge on anti-Westernism who, not coincidentally, include most of the worst human rights abusers on earth. The U.S. and Israel are the most abused targets, but Arab countries can get hit with it too. The latest example came over the Thanksgiving weekend when Morocco hosted the second annual World Human Rights Forum in the city of Marrakech. (The first was held last year in…
  • Israel Bombs Syria – Again

    Michael J. Totten
    8 Dec 2014 | 8:58 am
    The Israelis bombed Syria again. That’s what the Syrian and Iranian regimes are claiming anyway, though the Israelis won’t confirm or deny it. Generally we should take Israel’s word over Syria’s and Iran’s, but not this time. Israel’s refusal to deny it is a tacit admission that it did indeed launch air strikes against Syria, this time on the outskirts of Damascus. Israel is not bombing Syria randomly. It’s targeting weapons shipments bound for Hezbollah in Lebanon. The rest of us are focused on ISIS and ignoring what the Assad regime and Hezbollah are up to, but the Israelis…
  • Dispatch from Vietnam: Will the US Foster a Natural Ally?

    Michael J. Totten
    30 Nov 2014 | 12:02 pm
    My latest essay in the print edition of World Affairs is now available online. Here's the first part: Nearly forty years after the Vietnam War, Hanoi holds no grudges against the United States, in part because nearly all the country’s negative energy today is focused on China. And for good reason: China is big; it’s powerful; it’s right next door; and it has been hostile for two thousand years. Vietnam’s war with the US will never be repeated, but its long history of conflict with China, which is roughly as old now as Christianity, hasn’t been settled and might be revving up yet…

    Vladimir Kara-Murza

    CHELYABINSK, Russia — When, about an hour into the roundtable discussion on elections hosted by the Open Russia movement in this city in the Southern Urals on December 17th, SWAT teams and officers of the Emergencies Ministry stormed the room and ordered a forced evacuation, the speakers could not hide their smiles. Ten days earlier, exactly the same scenario—forced evacuation after an anonymous “bomb threat”—was used by the authorities in St. Petersburg in an attempt to sabotage the Open Russia conference there. That forum was also centered on the topic of Russia’s parliamentary…

    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…

    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…

    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…

  • Ukraine's Pro-Reform Cabinet

    Alexander J. Motyl
    22 Dec 2014 | 8:57 am
    Ukraine may finally have a cabinet able to introduce radical reforms. For the first time in independent Ukraine’s history, its ministers are young and Western. Youth matters, as it’s a measure of the degree to which individuals are still captives of the Soviet past. Western attitudes and experience also matter, as they presumably reflect the willingness and ability of the ministers to embark on pro-Western reforms.   The composition of the new cabinet was announced on December 2nd. Most commentators focused on the fact that three of the ministers were foreigners—an American, a…

    9 Dec 2014 | 10:03 am
    Vladimir Putin’s December 4th “state of the union” address to Russia’s Federal Assembly once again explained why he annexed the Crimea. This time, his explanation reached new ideological heights, while again confounding academic realists, who continue to insist that Russia grabbed the Crimea in response to an aggressive West. Here are Putin’s words: [The annexation of the Crimea] has special significance for our country and our people. Because our people live in the Crimea, and the territory itself is strategically important; because it is here that is found the spiritual source of…
  • Who Will Save the People of the Donbas?

    Alexander J. Motyl
    4 Dec 2014 | 11:45 am
    The answer, as is becoming increasingly obvious, is no one. Having ruined the economy of the Donbas enclave they occupy and caused a humanitarian catastrophe, neither Russia nor its terrorist proxies will come to the population’s rescue. Western powers reluctant to confront Vladimir Putin certainly aren’t going to open their wallets to the tune of billions of dollars. And Ukraine, which continues to proclaim that the territories are “temporarily occupied,” lacks the financial and military capacity to liberate the area. That leaves the enclave’s people isolated and, ultimately,…
  • 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…

    I believe the Founding Fathers would surely be proud of the vastness and strength of the United States, but they would be strongly disappointed with how we’ve come to interpret the Constitution.   Furthermore, they would be even more disappointed with the fact we have created a central bank that artificially foments growth and debases our currency through fraudulent monetary policy.   The Framers warned about our country and capitalist structure suffering from a central bank that purposefully imbalances the market in order to create phony credit and fake booms in the business…
