  • The Many Lives of Darth Vader

    29 Oct 2014 | 6:18 am
    Since his debut in the 1977 movie Star Wars, Darth Vader has been a rather busy Sith Lord. Apart from appearing in several movies since, Vader has also taken time out to participate in many other activities. For example, in recent months, he has shown a keen interest in Ukrainian politics. Over the years, news photographers have captured Lord Vader at premieres, rallies, promotional events, conferences, and sporting events, and even caught him at some low points, including a bank robbery. Gathered here are a handful of images of Vader's offscreen appearances around the world (Earth). [26…

    On June 27, a new lava flow emerged from Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano, flowing to the northeast at a rate varying from 2 meters per hour up to 15 meters per hour. In the months since, the "June 27 breakout" lava flow has crossed more than 12 miles and now threatens the small town of Pahoa. The molten rock has already claimed acres of forest, several roads, and small farm buildings, and buried the Pahoa Cemetery. Dozens of Pahoa residents have been evacuated ahead of the slow-moving disaster, as state and federal officials work to protect what they can and plan for the worst. If the flow continues…

    The Conversation

  • From scary stories to scowling pumpkins, Halloween has pagan roots

    Bill Hughes, Professor of Gothic Studies at Bath Spa University
    30 Oct 2014 | 11:16 pm
    Modern vestiges of an ancient past. 8363028@N08, CC BY-SAHalloween these days calls pumpkins to mind, cackling witches, teenagers pulling pranks and scream masks. You probably know that all this derives from All Hallows' Eve, the night before the Christian feast of All Hallows' Day, the time when the dead are remembered. But Christianity itself appropriated the tradition from pagan ancestors. And so the night which is, in the secular and commercial world, Halloween and in the Christian calendar, All Hallows’ Eve, has its roots in the pagan Wheel of the Year and the festival of Samhain.
  • It seems no cultural traditions involving death are safe from that commercial god, Halloween

    John Troyer, Deputy Director, Centre for Death and Society at University of Bath
    30 Oct 2014 | 11:15 pm
    On to profiting from Mexican traditions. PinkPueblo/ShutterstockHalloween is boring. I used to think this quite often when I was young. Not because I didn’t enjoy wearing costumes or collecting candy or even being chased by random neighbourhood dogs while trick or treating. No, I had a problem with Halloween because of all the coffins, skeletons, and fake tombstones. These things were supposed to make you scared, shiver and scream – and other children revelled in the fear. I, on the other hand, had a strong ambivalence towards all things death because my father was a funeral director.
  • Jerusalem, Israeli settlements and why a third intifada could be about to kick off

    Asaf Siniver, Associate Professor (Reader) in International Security at University of Birmingham
    30 Oct 2014 | 11:15 pm
    Riot police break up a mock funeral in Silwan. EPA/Mahfouz Abu TurkDoes this month’s escalation in violence in Jerusalem and the West Bank mean that a third intifada – a Palestinian uprising against the Israel’s occupation, following those of 1987 and 2000 – is imminent? The latest events in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict prove that the next round could kick off at any moment. On October 19, a five-year-old Palestinian girl in the West Bank died when she was hit by a Jewish settler’s car. Three days later, a 20-year old Palestinian from East Jerusalem’s Silwan neighbourhood…

    Right to be forgotten: shred data not reputations. AlexanderSteinWhen the “right to be forgotten” was established in the European Union, allowing people to have inaccurate and potentially harmful information removed from search engine results, there were concerns it would be misused – for example by those wishing to hide information about them that is in the public interest, such as reports of criminal wrongdoing. Now, some months after the Google Spain v Costeja González case in the Court of Justice of the European Union which established the right, we have a better idea what sort of…
  • Without the Green Party, we won't get a real debate

    Peter Bloom, Lecturer in Organization Studies, Department of People and Organisation at The Open University
    30 Oct 2014 | 11:14 pm
    Did he just say he agrees with Natalie? Gareth Fuller/PAA YouGov poll showing the Green Party has more support than the Liberal Democrats raises yet more questions as to why the party is being excluded from a planned series of debates ahead of next year’s election. If the decision to exclude the party was questionable before, it is even more so now. The Greens are quickly gaining ground and deserve to be taken seriously. But more importantly, bringing the party in will make this a real debate, not just a Q&A with four white men who can only be differentiated by the colour of their ties.

    Most boys of the Pokot tribe in Alale, Kenya, are unable to attend school due to their daily duty of cattle herding and their role as “warriors” to protect against cattle rustlers of the neighboring Turkana tribe. Dinah Hellen Chebitwey, a 52-year-old early childhood education officer, teaches Pokot boys the game of archery in an attempt to transform their skills into a means of peace-building.

    1984 remains one of the darkest years in modern Indian history. In June of that year, Prime Minister Indira Gandhi ordered a military assault on the most significant religious center for the Sikhs, Darbar Sahib (i.e., the Golden Temple) in Amritsar, Punjab. The attack killed thousands of civilians. On October 31, 1984, Mrs. Gandhi was assassinated by two of her Sikh bodyguards. Her assassination triggered genocidal killings around the country, particularly in India’s capital city, New Delhi.

Depending on who wins next Tuesday, hundreds of thousands of low-income Americans could get access to health insurance under the Medicaid expansion in the Affordable Care Act.

    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…

    From the International New York Times-  PARIS – There is something misleading about the current political excitement on both sides of the Seine. The ouster of three rebel ministers by a surprisingly firm president, a government reshuffle, a standing ovation delivered at Medef, the employers’ union, for the Socialist prime minister who dared to proclaim, “I love business!”: All the action was set in Paris. Yet one could fantasize that, some 900 kilometers away, Berlin’s invisible hand was quietly at play. Germany determines so much of France’s economic life these days that it…

    From the New York Times : The spectacle began, as it often does, with a local tragedy. Last month, an unarmed black teenager named Michael Brown was shot by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis. In a less media-saturated time, we might have gone on to consider this serious news event on its own terms, with journalists providing facts and insights, and politicians pondering a course of action. But in the mixed-up scrum of politics and media that our so-called national conversation has become, a serious news event is only the start of the news. Soon after the shooting,…

    If the majority of light-duty vehicles in the United States ran on higher-octane gasoline, the automotive industry as a whole would reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by 35 million tons per year, saving up to $6 billion in fuel costs, according to a new analysis by MIT researchers. In a study published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology, the team considered a scenario in which fuel is manufactured under a redefined octane rating — the measure of a gasoline’s ability to resist engine knocking during combustion.

Eliot. The school was founded in 1798which, in American terms, is old. For me, Boston was the stuff of novels: after a childhood largely spent in Sydney and Toronto, in what seemed to me a sort of Commonwealth periphery, I was headed, at…

    Applied Fashion: touch, taste, smell, even soundclose your eyes, and clothes sense is at your fingertips. Rebecca Willis explains  From INTELLIGENT LIFE magazine, November/December 2014 I don’t recommend shopping for clothes while wearing gloves. I tried it last winter by mistake when taking refuge from the cold in a local boutique. And I realised, as I moved along the rail, that I couldn’t get enough feedback from the clothes without my sense of touch.

    You can’t exactly use Google Wallet everywhere you go just yet, but if you do use it often enough to warrant semi-regular transfers from your bank, then you’ll love its latest update. Now, you can activate recurring bank transfers, even pick the amount and the schedule (say, once a month or so) you want, to automatically replenish your digital dollars. That’s especially useful if you depend on the physical Wallet card, which spends that balance every time it’s charged. But in case Wallet balance doesn’t matter as much — say, you have an NFC-enabled Android…

    Samsung likes to get some mileage out of its lofty design themes and plenty of people have gone gaga over the Galaxy Alpha’s subtle style, so it’s no surprise that the phone’s design DNA is being injected into other devices. SamMobile has been reporting for a while now that the Korea electronics giant has been working on a range of phones — the so-called A series — that feature some of the Alpha aesthetic, and now they’ve obtained images of the first one. It’s called the Galaxy A5, and if these reports hold true it falls very firmly onto the middle of…

  • Finland tries for giant, expensive pandas

    30 Oct 2014 | 10:02 pm
    China’s panda diplomacy has been a well-established policy in Beijing for decades. The animals are rarely loaned out and those that get them see it as a huge honour. Now Ranua and Ähtäri zoos in Finland are keen to host a pair of pandas, if an agreement can be reached.The animals would stay for ten years, and that would in itself cost a huge amount of money. Estimates of the rental payment on a panda run to hundreds of thousands of euros. That’s because the animals are extremely rare: just 1,600 live in the wild with a further 300 in captivity.The total cost, including food and…

The reasons for the cozier relationship between the two giant powers are, of course, rooted in the Ukraine crisis and subsequent Western sanctions against Russia, combined with China’s need to secure long-term energy supplies. However, a consequence of closer economic ties between Russia and China could also mean the beginning of the end…

Instead, they’re choosing to work more closely with families to safely maintain children in their own homes. There are many reasons for this shift. First, taking someone’s children away from them has to rank as one of the most drastic, costly and intrusive acts a…

    "In the latest chapter, Kozelek has recorded a song called 'Adam Granofsky Blues', a spoken word piece over a laid-back, acoustic blues progression where Kozelek reads what Granofsky had to say about him and laughs at each line. Hear it above." Unlike most rock stars in 2014, Sun Kil Moon mastermind Mark Kozelek doesn't have any time for the internet. But he's pulled off a magic trick of ensuring we're still talking about him online. That's not an easy trick. It's kinda like how, for years, Apple dominated the Twitter conversation despite not actually having an account on Twitter.

    Fun story about my distant past: Before I got into blogging on the ShortFormBlog tip, I worked on a site called Turking.com, an Amazon Mechanical Turk enthusiast site. I even bought the domain, which was incredibly well-timed. Unfortunately, a few things didn't work out—one of them being that the cultural interest was slow moving, and the other being that the approach was too bulky. (I wanted to use Drupal, my partner pushed us towards a PHP-based bulletin board system. Never make that mistake again.) After a few months, we kinda let the site fade out, and I forgot about it—until one day,…

    Two sisters hid $56 million (28 million pounds) cash in cardboard boxes in what may be Japan's biggest-ever tax dodge, media said. Hatsue Shimizu, 64, and Yoshiko Ishii, 55, were arrested on suspicion of hiding a stash of yen they inherited from their father, a real estate investor from the western Japanese city of Osaka. The sisters are thought to have begun withdrawing money from their father's bank accounts a few years before his death in 2004, the Yomiuri said.

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…

Ennahda is the Tunisian Branch of the Muslim Brotherhood under another name, and it wears a more moderate face than the Egyptian branch. Tunisia is a genuinely moderate country and Ennahda’s leaders have no choice but to tone down their rhetoric and their platform if they want to seriously compete in elections. Even so, they still only won 30 percent of the seats. The previous regime was aggressively…

Critics of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s “peace plan” for the Donbas enclave controlled by Russia and its terrorist proxies generally make this argument.

This comes as a major blow to the Indian QROPS market, as HDFC was the largest provider left after 15 schemes were previously delisted in July 2014. HDFC has lost all five schemes due to non-compliance, and this leaves just seven listed QROPS in a jurisdiction which has seen huge growth over the last two years. Unfortunately, HDFC has fallen foul of an in-depth investigation by HMRC, and although no official explanation is given when a scheme is struck off, it is thought that the ‘immediate annuity’…
  • Blunkett Supports Immigration Comments

    28 Oct 2014 | 6:06 am
    The UK’s former Home Secretary, Labour politician David Blunkett, has come out in support of the cabinet minister Michael Fallon, who has been widely criticised for his controversial stance on immigration. Fallon, who is the current Defence Secretary, said that the UK was “swamped by immigrants.” He also claimed that some areas of the UK were “under siege” by foreign nationals. He then retracted the comments, citing them as “careless” but the damage was done. In an outburst which would have more appropriate at a UKIP rally, Fallon was rounded on and backed up in equal measure,…

    The ruler of Kuwait has today warned that the declining price of oil is affecting his country and its economy. Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmed has told his politicians to start thinking about diversifying the country’s portfolio of investments as Kuwait’s dependence on oil – which is likely to run dry in under 50 years for the Gulf state – threatens to impact on the standard of living for Kuwaitis. Oil Down The oil price has gone down by over a quarter since June, and this has had a huge impact on many Gulf members who put all of their eggs in the oil basket. The UAE and Qatar are perhaps two…

Bill Gates’ heavy hitters acquired Nokia in April 2014 in a deal rumoured to be worth in the region of £4.6 billion.

    admin

    The iPad mini 2 and iPad mini 3 are virtually the same tablet. Though we still don’t know how much RAM the new tablet has (the previous version has 1GB), overall performance shouldn’t change much between both models. In terms of pricing, however, the iPad mini 2 and mini 3 are worlds apart, separated by $100. In terms of deals, pricing will also vary significantly as deals on the newer tablet won’t come close to deals on the “older” model, so we recommend shoppers opt for the iPad mini 2, which again will offer the same performance at a lower price point.

However, this year we expect to see an abundance of iPad mini deals with prices starting as low as $199. First, we’ll start with the cheapest iPad — the non-Retina iPad mini (2012). Last year, when the iPad mini Retina was announced, the first-generation iPad mini got a 9% price drop from $329 to $299. Retailers then cut the price of the first-gen mini down from $299 to $249, taking roughly 16% off…

    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…

    15 Oct 2014 | 11:42 am
    We are headed to “a world-turned-upside-down moment,” which could come as early as 2016. “That’s when,” Businessweek tells us, “India, always the laggard, may pull ahead of China and become the fastest-growing of Asia’s giants.” Analysts used to ask, “Can India Catch Up with China?” Now, it looks almost inevitable. There’s no mystery for the change in narrative. In a five-week-long election ending in May, 541 million voters went to the polls, and most of them demanded fundamental change. They rejected the ruling Congress Party of the Gandhi family, which had dominated…
  • China’s Economy Slides—and Capital Flees

    Gordon G. Chang
    10 Oct 2014 | 12:15 pm
    In a few days, China’s official National Bureau of Statistics will report the results for both September, the last month of the third calendar quarter, and the quarter as a whole. Analysts generally expect growth of gross domestic product will fall slightly from the second quarter’s 7.5 percent. Bank of China, one of the country’s Big Four state banks, predicts the economy will expand 7.3 percent. In reality, growth is far less than that. Especially indicative is electricity consumption, often viewed as a proxy for the economy as a whole and widely considered to be the most reliable…
  • For Hong Kong, Nothing Is Better Than Something

    Gordon G. Chang
    6 Oct 2014 | 8:17 am
    “Beijing is not going to lose,” said Jeff Bader to the Washington Post on Thursday, referring to the ongoing student-led democracy protests in Hong Kong. Because, as he puts it, people in Hong Kong “have very good lives” and “don’t see democratic development as the key to a good life,” Obama’s former top Asia adviser suggests the protesters accept Beijing’s proposed procedures for the 2017 election for chief executive, the city’s top political official. His recommendation is wrong on many counts but especially because people in Hong Kong should not legitimize the upcoming…

  • Tunisian Voters Say No to Islamists

    Michael J. Totten
    27 Oct 2014 | 10:54 am
    Tunisia just held a parliamentary election and Ennahda, the sort-of-moderate-but-not-really Islamist party lost to the ardently secular Nidaa Tounes, which translates into Call of Tunisia. Ennahda is the Tunisian Branch of the Muslim Brotherhood under another name, and it wears a more moderate face than the Egyptian branch. Tunisia is a genuinely moderate country and Ennahda’s leaders have no choice but to tone down their rhetoric and their platform if they want to seriously compete in elections. Even so, they still only won 30 percent of the seats. The previous regime was aggressively…
  • The Twisted Appeal of ISIS

    Michael J. Totten
    22 Oct 2014 | 3:49 pm
    A poll released last week by the Washington Institute suggestss that the Islamic State may be more popular in Europe than in the Middle East. Lee Smith tries to make sense of it. Europe’s got great health care, welfare, and lots of attractive young men and attractive women who, unlike the vast majority of women in the Middle East outside of Israel, are sexually available. So, why given a choice between a comfortable, if somewhat boring, life as a pharmacist in Hamburg, or fighting and dying in the desert, are thousands of Western Muslims opting for the latter? Because, for all the awesome…
  • Turkey Bombs the Kurds

    Michael J. Totten
    15 Oct 2014 | 9:57 pm
    Turkey finally decided to use military force after watching the Islamic State in Syria advance on the Kurdish city of Kobani—and did so by bombing the Kurds. The Kurdistan Worker's Party (PKK) deserves plenty of blame here. Its fighters reportedly fired on Turkish positions near the Iraqi border. But no one who has paid the slightest attention to what Turkey has been up to for the last several decades has any right to be shocked by Turkish willingness to bomb the Kurds but not the IS. There was never much chance that Turkey would help defeat the IS in Syria or Iraq. Prime Minister Recep…
  • From Havana to Hanoi

    Michael J. Totten
    12 Oct 2014 | 7:21 pm
    Vietnam’s communists are a hell of a lot smarter than Cuba’s. Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, thunders with economic productivity and bristles with new construction while most of Cuba’s capital Havana resembles a post-apocalyptic ruinscape. While civilized countries have a minimum wage, Cuba has a maximum wage of twenty dollars per month for almost every job in the country. A beer costs an entire week’s salary and a meal out in a restaurants costs a month’s, so drinking and dining establishments are almost strictly for foreigners. In Hanoi, though, you can’t walk a block without…

    Michael J. Totten
    9 Oct 2014 | 1:27 pm
    After the release of my zombie novel, Resurrection, City Journal asked if I could explain why so many people worldwide are obsessed with zombies. Here’s the first part of my essay: “Wild, dark times are rumbling toward us,” the German poet and journalist Heinrich Heine wrote in 1842, “and the prophet who wishes to write a new apocalypse will have to invent entirely new beasts, and beasts so terrible that the ancient animal symbols of Saint John will seem like cooing doves and cupids in comparison.” Heine wasn’t thinking of zombies, necessarily, but 170 years later, many of us are.

  • Leave Putin His Scraps

    Alexander J. Motyl
    24 Oct 2014 | 10:32 am
    Would territorial retreats whet Vladimir Putin’s imperialist appetite? I’d be rich if I had a hryvnia for every time I’ve heard that question answered in the affirmative. Accordingly, if one concedes an inch to Putin, he’ll take a mile. And, naturally, that mile will only be the prelude to many more miles. In sum, you can’t concede an inch—or else. Critics of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s “peace plan” for the Donbas enclave controlled by Russia and its terrorist proxies generally make this argument. Providing the enclave with a special status and effectively…
  • Ukraine Should Abandon the Donbas Enclave

    Alexander J. Motyl
    21 Oct 2014 | 10:16 am
    Ukraine has two nonnegotiable priorities in its ongoing war with Russia: survival and reform. Ukraine must survive as a sovereign democratic state in the short term if it is to reform, and it must reform itself in the medium term in order to survive and become a prosperous and secure sovereign democratic state in the long term. Both goals can be best advanced if Ukraine washes its hands of the enclave of the Donbas region that Russia and its proxies now control. Europe’s foremost priority is inextricably connected to Ukraine’s. Europe’s two key pillars—the European Union and the North…
  • Ukraine Must Reform to Save Itself

    Alexander J. Motyl
    17 Oct 2014 | 8:19 am
    Will NATO Save Ukraine from Russia? I’m surprised by how many people, especially in Ukraine, believe the answer is yes. And I’m no less surprised by how many Western analysts and Russian policymakers claim that that’s exactly what NATO hopes to do—and, by implication, will do. Naturally, Russians describe NATO’s presumed intentions as offensive and not defensive. It’s time to wake up and smell the espresso in Brussels. First, NATO has no army. As an institution, as a bureaucracy located in two complexes in and near the capital of Belgium, the alliance does not have troops. It can…

    Three recent news items deserve our attention.First the good news. According to the Russia-based Sociological Service of the Anti-Corruption Fund the vast majority of residents of Odessa and Kharkiv provinces support Ukrainian statehood and oppose Vladimir Putin’s New Russia (Novorossiya) project. A telephone survey of 1,000 people conducted on September 8th to 17th revealed the following attitudes: 87 percent stated they want “their region to remain a part of Ukraine,” as opposed to 3 percent who opted for membership in Russia and 2 percent who preferred New Russia. 34 percent want…
  • Will Putin's Successor Be Worse?

    Alexander J. Motyl
    22 Sep 2014 | 10:39 am
    Who will succeed Vladimir Putin if and when he falls? Will things get better or worse? Those are the intriguing questions posed by Benjamin Bidder, Moscow correspondent for the German news weekly Der Spiegel. Bidder concludes that the democrats have little chance of replacing Putin and that his successor is likely to be worse. It takes little fantasy to imagine Putin’s political end. He cannot be voted out of office like his friend Gerhard Schröder. Two scenarios are possible: either the current political elite in the Kremlin installs a successor or the Russians get rid of Putin and his…

    Things are looking up in Qatar; not only the skyscrapers rising from its desert sands. Index provider MSCI recently announced it would reclassify Qatar from frontier market to emerging market status.   The most significant potential benefit of this reclassification could be the dose of added confidence it will give investors.   I think Qatar’s future looks very bright for a number of reasons.   For ease of doing business, Qatar is one of the best in the region.   1.  The World Bank’s 2014-2015 Global Competitiveness index ranks it 16th among 189 countries in this…

The Cleveland Cavaliers went from being a lottery team to being one of the favorites in one season and it is because of the trio of Kevin Love, LeBron and Kyrie Irving. The Knicks shot just 36.5 % from the field, while New York allowed the Bulls to knock down 50.7 % of their shots. Amar’s Stoudemire scored 12 points and Anthony led the Knicks with 14 points.
