    The Wine-List Inspector: good food finally gets off the ground at Heathrow, with some wines to match, writes Tim Atkin From INTELLIGENT LIFE magazine, March/April 2015 There are times when Heathrow could drive a teetotaller to drink, never mind someone who enjoys wine. Europe’s busiest airport is (in)famous for its security queues and holding patterns, and not exactly noted for its restaurants. Until recently, only the first-class lounges offered much that was good to eat and drink, unless your idea of haute cuisine was Café Rouge. Things looked up in 2008 with the opening of Terminal 5,…

    In 1978, after more than a year of diplomatic efforts, the Camp David Accords were signed, establishing a framework for peace between Egypt and Israel. Egypt had been in a state of declared war with Israel since 1948, punctuated by several short but violent conflicts, including the Six-Day War in 1967. In 1977, U.S. President Jimmy Carter and Secretary of State Cyrus Vance laid the groundwork to get representatives from Egypt and Israel to meet and discuss conditions for ending hostilities and normalizing diplomatic relations. Israel agreed to withdraw its troops from the Sinai Peninsula, and…

    Private colleges are expensive. Many are double, if not triple, the price of public universities. Still, $71,000 a year is a lot of money. That’s the estimated total cost of attendance at New York University for the 2015-2016 academic year. And it’s not far off from what it costs to go to other private schools these days.Read full article >>

    Part of France's North Atlantic coast and southwestern England braced for their first giant tide of the millennium on Saturday as the alignment of the sun and the moon created an ocean surge not seen since the 1990s. This so-called "supertide" or "tide of the century," with surges up to 14 meters high, actually happens every 18 years. The high tides have turned France's famed Mont Saint-Michel into an island, and sent bore tide waves into England's River Severn, and the extreme low tides have exposed areas of beach and rock unseen since 1997.

    These streets were made for driving. Matt Cornock, CC BYAlmost all of us walk somewhere every day of our lives. According to the UK’s most recent National Travel Survey 22% of all trips are undertaken on foot – and walking continues to be the second-most important form of transport for all journeys after travel by car or van. For short trips of less than a mile, walking is totally dominant accounting for over 78% of all such travel. One third of all trips less than five miles in length are also on foot. By contrast, cycling accounts for just 1.5% of all journeys. Even if we only look at…

The exorbitant costs of competing, combined with uneven profits is especially hurting the chances of survival for smaller teams. In fact, with only ten teams on the grid – down from 20 in 1989 – 2015 risks being remembered as one of the least contented F1 championships of history. Maintaining a high level of competition in F1 is crucial for keeping an already dwindling audience. With finances seriously preoccupying most small teams, this poses a major threat to the F1…

Ibsen’s aging character Solness wonders if he should “open the door” to the younger generation, fretting that they might “break in upon me” and seek “retribution.” Roughly 90 minutes later, as the movie’s end credits roll, we hear the gentle strains of Paul McCartney’s “Let ’Em In”: “Someone's knockin' at the door / Somebody's ringin' the bell / Do me a favor, open the door and let 'em in.” In the space between, two Gen Xers get their…

We, the audience is meant to think, would never view Scalia so simplistically; we understand that the justice is really a principled conservative, a brilliant and complex man who resists partisan classification.

In remarks before a senate committee, Angie Wei of the California Labor Federation said the state needs to crack down on insurers using the law as an excuse to deny medical care and eliminate some of the layers of medical review that give employers and insurers multiple chances to overrule workers’ doctors.

New York is one of just two states – the other is North Carolina – where 16-year-olds facing criminal charges are automatically put into the adult criminal system. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently announced a plan to end that policy.

    ProPublica
    25 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    by Terry Parris Jr. Earlier this month, ProPublica published an investigation with NPR digging into the workers' compensation systems of all 50 states. Since 2003, more than 30 states have passed workers' comp laws that reduce benefits, create hurdles to getting medical care or make it more difficult to qualify. We also found that workers' body parts (as in arms, legs, fingers and toes) aren't created equal — limbs can be worth 10 times as much in benefits depending on where workers are injured. The modern workers' comp system is, essentially, a geographic lottery based on where…

  • This is The Strangest Animal Exhibit You’ll Ever See

    Ye Ming
    27 Mar 2015 | 10:33 am
    When the Bergen Museum in Norway closed its doors for restoration in 2013, it was forced to operate an unusual migration: move thousands of taxidermied animals. “It was a really magical place,” says Norwegian photographer Helge Skodvin, who grew up in Bergen and now lives blocks away from the historic architecture, which was founded in 1825. “For every person living in Bergen or being raised in Bergen, the natural history museum is a common place to spend your Sunday.” Skodvin tells TIME. “If you ask [Bergen residents], they all have stories about the…
  • Who Should—And Who Shouldn’t—Take Vitamin D

    Alice Park
    27 Mar 2015 | 9:58 am
    Does your diet need a little extra D? For researchers, it’s one of nutrition’s most vexing questions. “It’s the wild, wild west,” says Dr. JoAnn Manson, chief of preventive medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. “The issue has become murkier over time rather than clearer.” Research is mixed about whether doctors should routinely test for vitamin D levels, like they do for cholesterol, and whether people should be supplementing their diets with vitamin D pills. Case in point: a study just…

    The University of Oklahoma says it has determined that fraternity members learned a racist chant at a national event organized by Sigma Alpha Epsilon four years ago — and it wants to know what the leaders are doing about it. OU President David Boren is expected to announce the results of the school’s investigation into the disgraceful episode at 1 p.m. CT Friday, but revealed some findings in a letter to the frat’s executive director. “The chant was learned by local chapter members while attending a national leadership cruise sponsored by by the national SAE…
  • A Movement Against Racism Should Be a Movement for Mental Health

    Jennifer So
    27 Mar 2015 | 9:53 am
    The Black Lives Matter movement–which initially targeted the lack of indictments for the murderers of unarmed African American men and women and has since contributed to a larger conversation about the impacts of racism—has unapologetically highlighted the experiences of African Americans in this country. Another lesser-known but equally critical result of the movement: it raises an opportunity to discuss how racial discrimination negatively affects the mental health of African Americans. To combat the psychological and physical effects of racial discrimination, leaders of…
  • Kendrick Lamar Finally Tops the Billboard Charts With To Pimp a Butterfly

    Despite being widely regarded as the best rapper around—even by those who defeat him at the Grammys—Kendrick Lamar hadn’t yet topped the charts with an album. That changed Friday when To Pimp a Butterfly debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 dated April 4. The rapper had previously made it to No. 2 on the charts with Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City in 2012. Fun fact: To Pimp a Butterfly also now holds the record for being the first No. 1 album with the word “pimp” in the title. The closest any other record with the word “pimp” has ever come is Pimp C’s…

  • The image of the sobbing doctor proves that ‘professional distance’ has its human limits

    27 Mar 2015 | 10:30 am
    From medics to lawyers, we often expect people to mask their feelings for the sake of professional distance. But there is no shame if that mask slips occasionallyIt’s a simple and haunting image. An accident and emergency doctor crouches in the California rain, hanging on to a wall, grieving for a lost 19-year-old patient. The snapshot was shared many times on social media, having been posted by a paramedic, with the doctor’s permission. I doubt either of them realised that it would reach – and touch – a huge global audience.And yet it’s not so surprising that it has. It’s rare to…

    In a new video series, Thomas Erdbrink, the Tehran bureau chief for The New York Times, interviews the people of Iran, a country that is slowly changing and where nothing is as it seems, he says. “Iranians are used to foreign media portraying their country as sinister — from the movie based on Betty Mahmoudi’s book “Not Without My Daughter” after the 1979 revolution, to Ben Affleck’s Academy Award-winning film “Argo.” People here — especially those in power — would rather showcase the country’s natural beauty, ancient culture, hospitality and great food. “Why…
  • Private Cities, Open to All

    From The New York Times- The world is building more cities, faster than ever before. China used more cement in the last three years than the United States used in the entire 20th century. By 2050, India will need new urban infrastructure to house an additional 404 million people – a task comparable to building every city in the United States in 35 years. The global urban population is expected to rise to well over six billion by 2050 from 3.9 billion today. The world needs more cities. The task, however, is not simply to build them but to design them for today and the future. A city is…
  • A Visit to Europe’s Absurd New Border

    From Der Spiegel Magazine- Borders can be annoying, but largely predictable — in Europe at least. That is what truck driver Yevgeny believed until recently. Many of them are no longer monitored at all, but even those that are guarded rarely hold surprises for those wishing to cross them. “You know if you can zip across them or if you have to plan for a five-hour wait. But this one? I have no idea how it works.” The border he is referring to is that of a wartime stronghold on the edge of a largely borderless European continent.

  • Latinos in the United States: How to Fire Up America

    Saskia De Rothschild
    13 Mar 2015 | 6:48 am
    From The Economist-Eleven years ago a satirical film called “A Day Without a Mexican” (2004) imagined Californians running scared after their cooks, nannies and gardeners vanished. Set it in today’s America, and it would be a more sobering drama. If 57 million Hispanics were to disappear, public-school playgrounds would lose one child in four and employers from Alaska to Alabama would struggle to stay open. Imagine the scene by mid-century, when the Latino population is set to have doubled again. Listen to some, and this is a story of foreign scroungers threatening America, a…

After touching down on the asteroid’s surface, the spacecraft would snatch a boulder several meters across.

    Deep-water marine fish living on the continental slopes at depths from 2,000 feet to one mile have liver pathologies, tumors and other health problems that may be linked to human-caused  pollution, one of the first studies of its type has found. The research, conducted in the Bay of Biscay west of France, also discovered the first case of a deep water fish species with an “intersex” condition, a blend of male and female sex organs. The sampling was done in an area with no apparent point-source pollution, and appears to reflect general ocean conditions.

  • Obama's war on Israel

    -NO AUTHOR-
    27 Mar 2015 | 10:14 am
    (CarolineGlick.com) — On Wednesday, the Jerusalem Municipality announced it is shelving plans to build 1,500 apartments in the Har Homa neighborhood. Officials gave no explanation for its sudden move. But none was needed. Obviously the construction of apartments for Jews in Jerusalem was blocked in the hopes of appeasing US President Barack Obama. But is there any reason to believe he can be appeased? Today the White House is issuing condemnations of Israel faster than the UN. To determine how to handle what is happening, we need to understand the nature of what is happening.

I recalled all the bogus controversies revved up by Republican congressional committees and described as “scandals” by the media, from Travelgate to Filegate and even one involving the Clintons’ Christmas card list (I am not making that up).

    14 Mar 2015 | 8:50 am
    Gideon Rachman is perhaps the most perceptive foreign affairs columnist writing today, but he gets it badly wrong in his column (“Vladimir Putin’s survival strategy is lies and violence”, March 2), succumbing to speculation in the wake of Boris Nemtsov’s tragic murder. Mr. Rachman seeks to tar as Putin “apologist” anyone who believes the Russian President is driven by legitimate national interests. Instead, Putin is solely out to “save his own skin” with this the “red thread” driving all his actions (including Mr. Nemtsov’s murder, it is all but pronounced). As with the…

    Ivo Daalder’s Financial Times op-ed yesterday (Arm Ukraine to show Russia conflict has a cost) constitutes one of the most ill-advised foreign policy recommendations I can recall in many years, and this during an era which has seen many. With European unity already at a delicate juncture given Syriza’s victory in Greece—and material cohesion risks looming across both the EU’s economic and foreign policies--now is not the time to throw more kindling on the fire.

    24 Aug 2014 | 4:09 am
    In a recent interview with Tom Friedman (worth listening to in full) President Obama held forth for almost an hour on various foreign policy topics. Below I highlight a couple fascinating exchanges that I believe help illustrate some of Obama’s shortcomings as a foreign policy leader. The first relates to Russia. Friedman, to his credit, prefaces the Russia discussion energetically making the case that post-Cold War NATO expansion was a terrible blunder (“we traded Russia for the Czech Navy", Friedman quips). Obama sits somewhat stoically through Friedman’s brief anti-NATO expansion…

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. As for the caveat, Ravid's is but one journalist’s accounting, nor should one cheaply denigrate John Kerry, Martin Indyk and their respective staff's sweat…

The President's statement was followed up on Tuesday by Malawi's Minister of Gender, Children, Disability and Social Welfare, Patricia Kaliati, who unveiled a five-point plan of action to stop attacks on people born with the condition.

Photo: WFP/Abeer Etefa (file) A high-level UN probe into human rights violations in Syria received a 12-month extension on Friday after overcoming calls of political bias by some member states. Presenting its proposal at the Human Rights Council in Geneva, the United Kingdom said an additional year of investigation was needed as the conflict showed no sign of letting up. Ahead of the vote, the council heard objections from Syria and Russia, which said the probe placed too much…

Worse, women blame themselves for how bad they feel, thinking they should be able to handle it all.

    In New York City, a shot in the dark just got a whole lot easier to track, said Maud Rozee at Gothamist. The Police Department unveiled its new ShotSpotter detection system last week, a state-of-the-art network of 300 sensors deployed over 15 square miles that can "triangulate the location of gunshots to within 25 meters." Police officials estimate that up to 75 percent of shots fired in the city don't result in 911 calls, "a phenomenal underreporting of incidents of violence," said police commissioner Bill Bratton. The new system will be linked to closed-circuit TV cameras, "license plate…

  • Lawyers: Lufthansa could face 'uncapped' liability after Germanwings crash

    27 Mar 2015 | 10:25 am
    Aviation lawyers believe that the families of victims in Tuesday's Germanwings plane crash may be able to seek unlimited liabilities from Lufthansa, Germanwings' parent company. Investigators said Thursday that Andreas Lubitz, the plane's co-pilot, was likely to have intentionally crashed the plane into the French Alps, killing all 150 people on board. Investigators also believe Lubitz locked the pilot out of the cockpit. "The liability for the victims would be uncapped," George Leloudas, an aviation law expert, told Bloomberg. "From the perspective of the airline, it's difficult. There are…

Reid made the comment to The Washington Post during an interview in his home Friday morning. Reid's endorsement of Schumer means he is leapfrogging Senate Minority Whip Richard Durbin (D-Ill.), who is the second-highest Democrat in the upper chamber. (Schumer is third in line.) Reid said Durbin would likely not oppose Schumer and predicted Schumer would win the post uncontested. The Post reports that Reid and Durbin spoke via…

    A Matter of Taste: Chelsea boots never go away. To get the best out of them, Kassia St Clair advises, keep it simple From INTELLIGENT LIFE magazine, March/April 2015 It was J. Sparkes-Hall, bootmaker to Queen Victoria, who had the idea for what we now call Chelsea boots. He was inspired by another newfangled invention: vulcanised rubber. Vulcanisation, patented in 1844, involved curing rubber with sulphur, which made this viscous natural material both more durable and more elastic. To Sparkes-Hall, this meant he could design a close-fitting boot that, unlike its predecessors, needed neither…

    They don’t make films like this anymore. It was part of the 1960’s television series “True Adventure” with host Bill Burrud. This episode features Chuck Hartley on the Angeles National Forest. Chuck went on to a long firefighting career in the U.S. Forest Service, much of it on the Angeles. My favorite line is: It’s a story of Chuck Hartley, a forest, and a fire. A combination that spells a life and death struggle as we’ll see, when we go out on the fireline to watch the death of a forest. Did you notice any other interesting lines?

    Talks between the embittered factions of the Aam Aadmi Party seemed to fall apart without any hope of salvation, Thursday night. Dissenting AAP leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav wrote an open letter to party chief and their main foe Arvind Kejriwal, in which they indicted his side of forcing the two to resign from the party’s national executive. Their letter accused Kejriwal and his camp of not being open to any other option and of being geared towards their departure. The letter, written two days ahead of the crucial national council meet, points out that Kejriwal’s…

    Warplanes from a Saudi-led coalition kept up raids against Huthi Shiite rebels on Friday in support of Yemen’s embattled president, who headed to an Arab summit to garner support as Iran warned the intervention was “dangerous”. Powerful explosions rocked Sanaa soon after rebel leader Abdulmalik al-Huthi criticised the intervention as “unjustified” and called for supporters to confront the “criminal oppressive aggression”.

The account on Thursday of the final moments of Germanwings Flight 9525 prompted some airlines to immediately impose stricter cockpit rules — and raised haunting questions about the motive of the co-pilot, whose breathing never wavered as he destroyed the plane and the lives of those aboard.We have no idea of the reason,” Marseille Prosecutor…

    Dear Editor, I think you graciously for your space in this most read page and for allowing me time and space in your decent page, which seems to tell the whole truth about many things in this country. I, too, have a view of these developments emanating out of Mayaguana, which seem to have caused the Minister of Local Government to seek the Prime Minister for his removal from that post pending an investigation. What I find most disturbing is the fact that nowhere in modern jurisdictions is such poor jurisprudence exercised as shown recently in Mayaguana. A young man is arrested and charged…

    Harry Reid, the Democratic leader in the Senate, who announced today that he will not run for reëlection in 2016, leaves an imposing legacy—the transformation of the federal judiciary. When Barack Obama took office, in 2009, he had a long agenda—mending a collapsing economy, transforming health care, and ending two wars, to name just the top items. Nominating judges to the federal judiciary was low on the list. The President filled two quick vacancies on the Supreme Court with Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. As for the dozens of vacancies on the federal circuit and district courts,…

    People have often compared network television to sausage, in that nobody would want to see how either one is made. The National Sausage Council takes great issue with that comparison, and, as its official spokesperson, I’d like to set the record straight: the manner in which sausages are made bears absolutely no resemblance to the way network television shows are made. The sausage-making process begins each year in July, when executives from the four major sausage companies gather at resorts in Southern California to discuss what kinds of sausage they should produce for the public.

    When, at the 2012 U.S. Olympic trials, Jeneba Tarmoh and Allyson Felix lunged across the hundred-metre finish line in a dead heat, officials turned to the rulebook for help figuring out which of the women should be awarded the third and final spot on the national team. They found themselves staring into a void: there was no tie-breaking procedure in place. The ensuing soap opera, in which the athletes were left in limbo for more than twenty-four hours and then given a choice between a coin toss and a runoff, ended only when an angry Tarmoh refused to repeat the race.

It premièred at Roundabout Underground’s sixty-two-seat black box in 2012, then moved to the “big” theatre upstairs, which seats four hundred and twenty-four.

At the moment it looks set for a tight contest to be the second-placed party behind Juha Sipilä's Centre Party.

According to the UK’s most recent National Travel Survey 22% of all trips are undertaken on foot – and walking continues to be the second-most important form of transport for all journeys after travel by car or van. For short trips of less than a mile, walking is totally dominant accounting for over 78% of all such travel. One third of all trips less than five miles in length are also on foot. By contrast, cycling accounts for just 1.5% of all journeys. Even if we only look at…

The exorbitant costs of competing, combined with uneven profits is especially hurting the chances of survival for smaller teams. In fact, with only ten teams on the grid – down from 20 in 1989 – 2015 risks being remembered as one of the least contented F1 championships of history. Maintaining a high level of competition in F1 is crucial for keeping an already dwindling audience. With finances seriously preoccupying most small teams, this poses a major threat to the F1…

On the first night of the official campaign, the opening televised “debate” saw prime minister David Cameron and opposition leader Ed Miliband facing a monstering from veteran political interviewer Jeremy Paxman, and rather less aggressive questioning from an invited studio audience. The broadcast was watched by around 2.6m viewers – lower than the 9m who watched Britain’s first televised leaders’ debate in 2010.

    It’s hard to imagine life these days without cars.

The family found a pride of lions and slowly pulled up next to them to get a better view. One lioness decided to check them out and eventually figured out how to open the car door with her mouth. The girls screamed and quickly closed the door. It was only then that they all realized out loud “you’re supposed to lock the door.”

    How to counter Vladimir Putin’s propaganda? The EU is trying to decide on a strategy. Meanwhile—you read it here first—the Nordic and Baltics states are steaming ahead with a very concrete plan that will soon offer Russian-language television in the Baltic states, where Russian minorities today almost exclusively watch Kremlin-directed TV. Call it Nordic noir versus the Kremlin. “The Russians have a lot of good TV shows, so the Baltic states need something that will convince Russian-speakers to switch over,” says Per Carlsen, Denmark’s ambassador to Latvia.

But now only 35 percent oppose NATO membership, compared to 48 percent who support it. That’s the first time NATO membership has been Swedes’ top choice, reports the Swedish news agency TT. According to the same survey, a majority of Swedes wants to reintroduce conscription, and, in a remarkable turn of events, almost 60 percent want to increase defense spending, a 100 percent increase compared to only three years ago.

The very next day, Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula seized control of the city of al-Houta, and the day after that, the Iranian-backed Houthi rebel movement conquered parts of Taiz, the nation's third-largest city.

    23 Mar 2015 | 10:14 am
    If you listen to Ukrainians tell it, there’s been absolutely no reform within the last year. Their frustration is understandable—they want the positive effects of major change now—but their perception just doesn’t correspond to the facts. The much awaited reform process is actually under way—though quietly and unobtrusively. The Education Ministry and the Ministry of Internal Affairs have led the way with restructuring universities and the police force, probably because they don’t deal directly with high-stakes corruption and the power of the oligarchs. Some personnel cuts have…

    On March 5th, Sri Lanka’s new government suspended a $1.4 billion development in downtown Colombo, the capital city. The stated reason was procedural. A review board had determined the project was not properly approved. The real explanation has to do with Sri Lanka’s recent elections. Mahinda Rajapaksa, Sri Lanka’s president, who sought this and other Chinese investments in this Indian Ocean nation of 20 million, was turned out of office on January 8th. Rajapaksa’s welcome mat for Chinese influence was a major issue in the campaign, as was his creeping authoritarianism, stifling of…

    Gordon G. Chang
    20 Mar 2015 | 10:41 am
    On Tuesday, France, Germany, and Italy announced they will participate in the Beijing-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. The trio follows Britain’s decision to do so and precedes expected announcements by Australia and South Korea. Washington had counseled caution about joining AIIB and is not expected to sign on. The rush of American friends and allies to become founding members was portrayed as a “debacle” for the US by Financial Times columnist Gideon Rachman and a “humiliation” of Washington by the South China Morning Post.The US, Rachman noted, now looks “isolated and…

    “We cannot predict when Chinese communism will collapse,” writes David Shambaugh in an essay in Saturday’s Wall Street Journal, “but it is hard not to conclude that we are witnessing its final phase.” The George Washington University professor is known in the global China-watching community as having close ties to the Communist Party of China. In his essay, titled “The Coming Chinese Crackup,” he mentions attending a conference at the Central Party School in Beijing last December and having other contacts with cadres and officials. He was recently named one of America’s top 20…

    On Friday, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich signaled that the Kremlin would be willing to give Chinese companies majority stakes in Russian oil and gas fields. “There used to be a psychological barrier,” he said, speaking from Krasnoyarsk, a city in energy-rich Siberia. “Now it doesn’t exist anymore. We are interested in maximum investments in new industries. China is an obvious investor for us.” At present, Russia caps foreign ownership at 50 percent for oil fields where reserves exceed 70 million tons and gas fields containing more than 50 billion cubic meters in…

    The recent completion of two government-directed mergers in China’s energy and manufacturing sectors and other mergers now in the making suggest Beijing is reversing two decades of reform intended to make Chinese industry more efficient and competitive in local and global markets. The ongoing effort is certain to fail in the long term. As reported by the Wall Street Journal last week, Beijing is contemplating two mergers of state oil giants: the China National Petroleum Corporation with China Petrochemical Corporation, better known as Sinopec,and China National Offshore Oil Corporation with…

    On Sunday, more than a hundred protesters—most of them young—mobbed New Town Plaza, a mall in the Sha Tin District of Hong Kong. There, they clashed with shoppers and hounded tourists from mainland China. Police tussled with the demonstrators, wielded batons, used pepper spray, and made arrests during the second consecutive Sunday of demonstrations against “parallel traders,” individuals buying goods in Hong Kong and lugging them across the border to China. On February 8th, there were similar protests in Tuen Mun, an area also close to the China border. For years, residents of…

    Michael J. Totten
    23 Mar 2015 | 10:43 am
    Suicide-bombers killed at least 137 people and wounded more than 350 in Yemen at two Shia mosques in the capital city of Sanaa on Friday. The very next day, Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula seized control of the city of al-Houta, and the day after that, the Iranian-backed Houthi rebel movement conquered parts of Taiz, the nation's third-largest city. Rival militias are battling for control of the international airport in the coastal city of Aden, and the US government just announced that American troops are evacuating Al Anad airbase. ISIS is taking credit for the Sanaa attacks. “Infidel…
  • Egypt Wants to Junk Cairo

    Michael J. Totten
    17 Mar 2015 | 4:40 pm
    Egyptian officials want to dump Cairo as their capital and build a new one out in the desert. Can’t say that I blame them. These people have to live in Cairo—with 18 million people, it's far too large to commute in from outside—and the city is awful. I can't hardly think of Cairo without remembering a passage from Travels with a Tangerine by Tim Mackintosh-Smith, a British Arabist expat who lives in Yemen. Few visitors have liked Cairo on first sight. “Uff!” exclaimed an eight-century caliph, “She is the mother of stenches!” Later, a geographer wondered why anyone should have…
  • A Real Downside to Any Deal With Iran

    10 Mar 2015 | 8:11 pm
    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu caused a stir last week when he blasted President Barack Obama’s attempt to negotiate a nuclear deal with Iran. American television media covered little else for 24 hours. The prime minister and the president are still bickering about it this week on Twitter. Both have ignored a disturbing reality: any deal with Iran, good or bad, is likely to benefit ISIS. President Obama is pursuing an agreement for understandable reasons. Far better to resolve the West’s differences with Iran diplomatically rather than violently. Prime Minister Netanyahu,…
  • Let Iraq Die: A Case for Partition

    Iraq is finished, an expiring, cancerous nation on life support. Pulling the plug might be merciful. It might be cruel. But either way, it’s time to accept the fact that this country is likely to die and that we’ll all be better off when it does. The Kurds in the north, who make up roughly twenty percent of the population, want out. They never wished to be part of Iraq in the first place. To this day, they still call the bathroom the “Winston Churchill,” in sarcastic homage to the former British prime minister who shackled them to Baghdad. Since the early 1990s, they’ve had their…
  • Iraq Wants More American Bombs Dropped on Iraq

    My how things change. The Iraqi government is cheesed off at the United States right now because Washington isn’t dropping bombs on Saddam Hussein’s hometown of Tikrit. “The Americans continue procrastinating about the time it will take to liberate the country.” That’s from Ali al-Alaa, an aid to the new prime minister Haider al-Abadi, to the New York Times yesterday. Tikrit is occupied by ISIS. Baghdad wants it back. Washington would like to see Baghdad get it back, but the Pentagon has good reasons to keep its finger off the fire button right now. The Iraqi armed forces consist…

    MOSCOW — This is probably the most difficult piece in my life. Boris Yefimovich Nemtsov was a rarity in politics. Having raced up the political power ladder—member of Parliament at 30, regional governor at 32, senator at 34, first deputy prime minister at 38, leader of the parliamentary opposition at 40—he always maintained his honesty, his character, and his principles, never betraying his ideals or his friends. He was the face of a different, freer, more hopeful, and more European Russia. A committed democrat and modernizer, who propelled his Nizhny Novgorod region to one of the…

    MOSCOW — “Mr. Putin does not want to annex eastern Ukraine. I am sure of it. He told me so,” French President François Hollande affirmed in a recent radio interview. Whether this was an unfortunate turn of phrase or genuine naïveté, Western leaders should be reminded of what Russian citizens have long known—that Vladimir Putin’s promises are rarely worth the paper they are written on. Here is but a short selection of prominent “he-told-me-so’s” from the Kremlin leader. “To take away the people’s right to elect their regional leaders would be wrong… and would…

    30 Dec 2014 | 1:43 pm
    MOSCOW — On December 19th, Gazprom Media, the Kremlin-controlled information empire, unexpectedly announced the resignation of its chairman, Mikhail Lesin, “for family reasons.” Lesin himself declined to comment. Vladimir Putin’s former press minister, who oversaw the destruction of three independent nationwide television networks in the early 2000s, was brought back to run a key component in the Kremlin’s propaganda machine in late 2013, just before the Ukrainian revolution and Putin’s annexation of Crimea. Over the past year, media outlets under Lesin’s control—including NTV…

    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…

    Alexander J. Motyl
    23 Mar 2015 | 10:14 am
    If you listen to Ukrainians tell it, there’s been absolutely no reform within the last year. Their frustration is understandable—they want the positive effects of major change now—but their perception just doesn’t correspond to the facts. The much awaited reform process is actually under way—though quietly and unobtrusively. The Education Ministry and the Ministry of Internal Affairs have led the way with restructuring universities and the police force, probably because they don’t deal directly with high-stakes corruption and the power of the oligarchs. Some personnel cuts have…

MOTYL: Professor Taagepera, you were the first social scientist to have studied the rise and fall of empires in a rigorous social-scientific manner. So let’s start with a big-picture question. Why do empires decay? TAAGEPERA: Empires rarely stand still. They initially outrun their internal flaws through external expansion. Once they stop growing, these flaws accumulate. Expansion is self-reinforcing, and so is decay. To change course, one…

Before him is a bowl of borscht. As he eats, he shares his views of the current crisis in Ukraine with nine specialists and activists. Zissels does not mince words. “There is no civil war in Ukraine,” he says. “There is a Russian aggression supported by local collaborators.” The war with Russia will be “long,” and Ukraine needs to construct a “militarist economy” like Israel’s.

    9 Mar 2015 | 9:54 am
    A recently released German documentary about Vladimir Putin—Mensch Putin!—paints a decidedly unflattering picture of Russia’s leader. He is, according to the film, a disturbingly insecure man with a deeply rooted need to compensate for his inadequacies with manifestations of physical prowess and the exercise of power. “So what else is new?” Putin’s many critics might ask.  The answer is: the film is German, produced by none other than the venerable ZDF, or Germany’s equivalent of BBC or PBS. That makes the film a touchstone of changing German attitudes toward Putin. The film…

    Alexander J. Motyl
    24 Feb 2015 | 11:39 am
    So who’s winning the war in eastern Ukraine—Russia or Ukraine? The answer is not as simple as it might seem, because victory means different things for each side. A Russian victory could take one of two forms: territorial expansion into large parts of southeastern Ukraine or the imposition on Ukraine of disadvantageous peace terms. Or it could take both forms. But neither has happened, and neither is likely to happen. Anything short of such a victory amounts to a defeat for Russia. Having destroyed the Russian economy, transformed Russia into a rogue state, and alienated Russia’s allies…

    I believe success is all about empowering people. The more people you empower, the more money and power one acquires in addition to having an ever increasing impact on his/her constituency. Empowering people is in fact and in my opinion better than education and management hierarchy combined.   The Key question then becomes: How do you truly empower people?   I believe there are several ways to do it. Empowering is really like fueling them with the guns they need to shoot. Here are some ways:   1. Build a culture. Empowerment will not happen if there is a culture that doesn’t…
