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

    When Barack Obama looks in the mirror these days, he must see a terrifying visage staring back at him: that of George W. Bush. In a cruel echo of history, Obama is morphing into the president whose foreign policy he campaigned to overturn. Obama on Monday morning sacked his Pentagon secretary, Chuck Hagel, after huge midterm election losses in the sixth year of his presidency – just as Bush did in sacking Donald Rumsfeld after midterm losses in the sixth year of his presidency.

    For more than three years now, Syrians have endured the loss and hardship caused by a protracted civil war. At the moment, Syrian government forces are fighting several rebel groups spread throughout the country, as well as ISIS, the militant group attempting to form a new state carved out of Syria and Iraq. The smaller rebel groups are fighting each other, and just about everyone in the region is fighting ISIS, assisted by airstrikes carried out by a U.S.-led coalition. Pockets of Damascus are stable enough for residents to carry on normal lives, while some distant rural villages have been…

Gathered here are recent images of robotic technology, including a "Blind" robot, unmanned agricultural machines, a robotic Torah writer, a robot traffic cop in Kinshasa, several telepresence machines, humanoid machines, and an Iranian praying robot.
  • Toro de Jubilo, the Fire Bull Festival

    17 Nov 2014 | 6:18 am
    The Toro de Jubilo is an ancient tradition held annually at midnight in the Spanish town of Medinaceli. The event starts when a bull is tied to a post and flammable balls of tar are attached to its horns. Mud is caked on its face and back to protect it from the flames. The tar balls are then set alight, the bull released, and revelers dodge the animal until the flammable material burns out and fireworks are set off. This year's event was delayed when animal rights activists occupied the bullring in Medinaceli. The protesters were removed by police officers, and the Toro de Jubilo proceeded as…

That is also the name of the long-running late evening news bulletin on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s main television channel, not to mention an English-language newspaper in the Middle East. But it is a title which both commands attention and signifies ambition, which is no doubt why it has been chosen for the new paper. Launching a new…
  • The departure of Chuck Hagel -- but isn't foreign policy supposed to be the last refuge in a president's waning days?

    24 Nov 2014 | 12:37 pm
    Even if the decision was intended to placate his critics within the military and the White House staff, Chuck Hagel’s resignation as Secretary of Defense could not have come at a worse time for the Obama administration. The White House is currently mired in controversy over its policies in Iraq. It has been criticized for its recent environmental agreement with China. And the President faces the threat of legislative paralysis because of his executive action regarding America’s burgeoning undocumented immigrant population. Even if Hagel’s resignation was by mutual agreement, critics…

  • The most important thing for a stutter is to get in early

    Mark Onslow, Professor of Speech Pathology and Director, Australian Stuttering Research Centre at University of Sydney
    24 Nov 2014 | 11:38 am
    Stutters are much harder to shake in adulthood, when they cause more anxiety. Flickr/Jessica Lucia, CC BY-SAMost speech and language disorders of early childhood are obvious right from the start. If a child is having difficulty producing sounds or using language, the problem is noticed when speech development begins. However, stuttering typically begins when two and three-year-olds begin putting words together into short sentences, when speech and language development seems to be well under way. It can be particularly distressing for parents when stuttering begins suddenly. For no obvious…

    The departure of Chuck Hagel as secretary of defense has been greeted as a surprise, but it really shouldn’t have. President Obama nominated him for the job, in January 2013, as the right man to watch over the winding down of two wars and the drawdown of the defense budget. Now, with the gearing up of U.S. involvement in new, complex conflicts, and the growing realization that policy is not among Hagel’s strong suits, it does seem time for him to go.

Michele Bachmann once pledged to padlock its doors; John Boehner has called it “nuts”; and Mitch McConnell says getting “the EPA reined in” will be a top priority when he ascends to Senate majority leader come January.

    by Naveena Sadasivam A New York State Supreme Court Judge ruled Monday that prosecutors may use the confession of the man charged with strangling 6-year-old Etan Patz to death in 1979. In denying the motion to suppress the confession of Pedro Hernandez, the defendant in the case, Justice Maxwell Wiley said Hernandez did have the mental capacity to waive his rights to have an attorney present and understood that he had the right to remain silent. The 53-year-old Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to the murder of Patz, who disappeared one morning while walking alone to his school bus stop. His…

  • Vernon Bogdanor: The General Election of 1945

    21 Nov 2014 | 5:17 pm
    Vernon Bogdanor: The General Election of 1945 The 1945 general election saw the return of the first ever majority Labour government. The Gallup poll had shown a Labour lead for over two years. Nevertheless most politicians and commentators were astonished by the result, since they expected that the war hero, Winston Churchill, would be returned to office by a grateful nation. In the event there was a swing of around 12% to Labour. How is this to be explained? Did the war radicalise the British people? Was the outcome a mandate for socialism? Or was it merely a reaction against the politics of…

  • 13 vegetarian dishes for Thanksgiving

    By Sarah Jampel
    24 Nov 2014 | 12:54 pm
    At its best, Thanksgiving's bounty inspires gratitude; at its worst, vegetarian angst. Non-meat eaters, when faced with a table that could be confused with a turkey temple, often fixate on the meat. They scratch their heads and wonder, "What's in it for me?"The answer: A lot. A whole lot. Vegetarians can eat creamy vegetables, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and a vegetarian gravy that's just as good — even better — than any made with meat or chicken stock.Even without the turkey, vegetarians have a lot to be thankful for.Thanksgiving root vegetable pie by Marian BullScalloped...

Below the Coast Guard orange balloon is an LED light that flashes the SOS signal. The company expects the selling price to be about $75, but a $40 pledge (plus shipping) on Kickstarter should get you one if the device begins shipping in April, 2015 as planned.

    Allow me to begin with my very best Andy Rooney impersonation: When I was growing up, there was no such thing as a “day one patch.” I went to Video Station on Saturday with my parents — if I was lucky – and came home with a single rented game for the weekend. James Pond or Bubsy the Bobcat or Blast Corps or whatever. Maybe I’d have to blow out the cart, or erase the last renter’s save file before playing whatever game I rented. Let’s imagine a similar scenario today: You go to a Redbox kiosk or GameFly mails you a disc for your Modern GameBox™.

    So long as you still need physical ID cards and cash, you’ll need something to carry them — but that doesn’t mean that you’re stuck with a low-tech purse or wallet. StreetSmart is crowdfunding the SmartWallet, a money holder with both a Bluetooth-connected GPS locator and a 1,000mAh battery to charge your phone. It’s not nearly as world-changing as the company’s (rather hyperbolic) promo video suggests, but it’s potentially handy if you tend to forget your cash or phone when you head out the door.

And even though this was clearly not the case, the company has been doing everything it can to hype up its new compact system in the meantime, including a partnership with Joseph Gordon-Levitt to create a film, titled In a City, that’s going to be shot entirely with the NX1. On paper, the camera seems like great option, featuring a 28.2-megapixel, APS-C CMOS sensor, 15fps of continuos shooting, a 3-inch Super AMOLED articulating screen, an EVF with a…

TorrentFreak understands that watchmakers like Omega, Panerai, Swatch and Tissot are sending takedown requests to sites hosting smartwatch faces that allegedly violate “trademark, copyright and design rights.” The companies aren’t speaking on the record, but this is more about legal obligation than attempting to protect sales — if they don’t crack down on bootleg digital faces, they’ll have a harder time taking…

    A daily from the Sunday team that backed a Yes vote. Steven VassThere is no copyright in titles, although I must admit when I heard that the name of the new Scottish daily newspaper launched this week was The National, I was momentarily thrown.

    Even if the decision was intended to placate his critics within the military and the White House staff, Chuck Hagel’s resignation as Secretary of Defense could not have come at a worse time for the Obama administration. The White House is currently mired in controversy over its policies in Iraq. It has been criticized for its recent environmental agreement with China. And the President faces the threat of legislative paralysis because of his executive action regarding America’s burgeoning undocumented immigrant population. Even if Hagel’s resignation was by mutual agreement, critics…

    Stutters are much harder to shake in adulthood, when they cause more anxiety. Flickr/Jessica Lucia, CC BY-SAMost speech and language disorders of early childhood are obvious right from the start. If a child is having difficulty producing sounds or using language, the problem is noticed when speech development begins. However, stuttering typically begins when two and three-year-olds begin putting words together into short sentences, when speech and language development seems to be well under way. It can be particularly distressing for parents when stuttering begins suddenly. For no obvious…

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

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

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

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

  • Three suspects arrested in china for spreading WireLurker malware

    19 Nov 2014 | 4:38 am
    Now a days, any mention of malware and Macs in the same setting generally conjures up images of WireLurker. It was notable as a new family of malware specifically targeting iOS devices via USB and is able to penetrate the iPhone's strict software controls. WireLurker has been in action in China for the past six months, first infecting Macs by inserting Trojan software through repackaged OS X apps, then moving on to iOS devices. The firm claims that it is the first to automate generation of malicious iOS apps by implementing a binary file replacement attack.Security experts at Palo Alto…

  • China: Socialist, Democratic, Harmonious by 2050?

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

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

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

    29 Oct 2014 | 12:00 pm
    On Friday, General Curtis Scaparrotti, commander of UN and US forces in Korea, told reporters that he believes Pyongyang has developed the “capability” to miniaturize a nuclear device. The regime, he said during a Pentagon press briefing, also has the “technology” to deliver that device by ballistic missile. The general did not claim North Korea had actually mounted a warhead on a missile or that it had in fact tested the combination, but of course it is only a matter of time before it does so. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, as the North likes to call itself, has claimed…

    On Monday, GreatFire.org, an Internet monitoring group, charged that China launched “a malicious attack on Apple in an effort to gain access to usernames and passwords and consequently all data stored on iCloud.” The “man-in-the-middle” attack, which deceived users into logging onto a Chinese government-controlled website instead of Apple’s, was directly traceable to China’s central government. “We know that the attack point is the Chinese Internet backbone and that it is nationwide, which would lead us to be 100 percent sure that this is again the work of the Chinese…

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

  • The Kurds Rise From the Ashes of Syria

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

    Michael J. Totten
    11 Nov 2014 | 11:26 am
    Russia is provoking Poland on purpose to see how NATO will respond. From Popular Mechanics: NATO and allied jets have scrambled more than 100 times this year in response to Russian military sorties. This activity is growing more dramatic. Within the last week, NATO intercepted four groups of Russian aircraft. "These sizable Russian flights represent an unusual level of air activity over European airspace," the alliance said in a statement. When the planes at Łask jump into action, it's called a Quick Reaction Alert, or QRA. Lt. Col. Ireneusz "Palm" Nowak, the base commander at Łask, says…

  • 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…
  • 50,000 March in Moscow Against Putin's War

    Vladimir Kara-Murza
    26 Sep 2014 | 10:20 am
    MOSCOW — Last Sunday, Russian citizens once again refuted the Kremlin’s propaganda image of a nation united behind the aggressive actions of a dictator. Some 50,000 people, according to media estimates, marched through downtown Moscow to protest Vladimir Putin’s war against Ukraine and his escalating crackdown on what remains of civil liberties in Russia. For the first time in many months, the demonstration was backed by all of Russia’s pro-democracy parties, including the People’s Freedom Party, Yabloko, and Progress Party. Demonstrators were chanting “Peace to Ukraine, Freedom…
  • Muscovites Use Vote to Say ‘No’ to Putin’s War

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

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

    Vladimir Kara-Murza
    29 Aug 2014 | 12:58 pm
    MOSCOW — One of the key themes of Vladimir Putin’s propaganda machine—both for domestic and for foreign consumption—has always been the supposed lack of a better alternative. However unattractive Putin’s corrupt and authoritarian regime, the implicit reasoning went, its replacement would be worse—radical nationalists or leftists. It was no accident that, during the mass anti-Putin protests in 2011–2012, state television channels went out of their way to pick out communist and nationalist flags in the crowd—even though communists and nationalists accounted for, respectively, 13…

  • Does Ukraine’s Reform Plan Measure Up?

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

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

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

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

    Alexander J. Motyl
    4 Nov 2014 | 10:21 am
    At the moment, Russia has lots of hard power and very little soft power, while Ukraine has lots of soft power and little hard power. Russia’s determination to exclude soft power will ultimately be suicidal. In contrast, Ukraine’s future is bright, but only if it manages to hold on to its soft power while building up its reserves of hard power. Power is generally understood as the capacity to induce others to do your bidding. The central components of hard power—armies and economies—either coerce others to bow to your will (by force or the threat of economic sanctions) or encourage…
