  • The Ship Breakers

    In Focus
    24 Nov 2014 | 6:55 am
    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…

It’s not just the decision itself that’s being questioned, but the timing of the announcement. Why in the evening, at 9pm local time? And did the darkness play any role in the rioting in Ferguson, Missouri, that followed the announcement? Racial tensions Racially-charged violent protests…

    Roof-top solar panels are just one part of the micropower revolution. Presidency Maldives, CC BY-NCThere is no shortage of shouting and dire warnings about the state of the climate and our need to phase out fossil fuels. But there is a more silent revolution happening too — in micropower. Small-scale electricity generation is slowly replacing big fossil-fuel driven power plants, which are currently the world’s single largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. These micro-electricity producers are relatively small scale, inexpensive, and most importantly, produce little to no carbon…

    John Williams' 1960 novel has been hailed as part of a pantheon of western masterpieces. Pam Morris, CC BY-SADespite the huge and belated praise now surrounding John Williams’ novel Stoner (1965), much less attention has been cast to his earlier novel, Butcher’s Crossing (1960). Still, it’s been rightly hailed as part of a pantheon of western masterpieces alongside Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian (1985) and Oakley Hall’s Warlock (1958). Some surface commentaries have hailed Butcher’s Crossing as the better “hit” novel. But more pertinent in this great literary western is…

    by Isaiah Thompson, special to ProPublica, The oil boom underway in North Dakota has delivered jobs to local economies and helped bring the United States to the brink of being a net energy exporter for the first time in generations. But moving that oil to the few refineries with the capacity to process it is presenting a new danger to towns and cities nationwide — a danger many appear only dimly aware of and are ill-equipped to handle. Much of North Dakota's oil is being transported by rail, rather than through pipelines, which are the safest way to move crude. Tank carloads of crude…

Protesters had gathered outside the Ferguson Police Department on Tuesday for a second night following a grand jury decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown. Despite several arrests, there was a far different feel than the previous night, which saw arson, looting and rioting. Several hours after nightfall, a group of people broke off from the crowd and marched down from the police department. A police car…

    A previously unknown letter from Albert Camus to Jean-Paul Sartre has been unearthed after hanging above an autograph collector’s fireplace for decades.

Writing from his apartment in Paris, Camus among other things recommends Spanish actress Aminda Valls for one of Sartre’s plays, calling her a “marvel of humanity.” An autograph collector acquired the letter in the 1970s and kept it framed in his…

    A Matter of Taste: are pendant lamps a turn-on, or a turn-off? Kassia St Clair sheds light on a new trend From INTELLIGENT LIFE magazine, November/December 2014 The lighting buyer at the grand old London homestore Heal’s, aptly named Lucio Longoni, is a happy man.

  • For More Local Turkeys To Hit Holiday Tables, You Need An Abattoir

    25 Nov 2014 | 3:32 pm
    It's a busy time of year for turkey farmers around the country. And these days, with the growth of the local food movement, small family farms are struggling to keep up with all the orders for birds. So, we went to find out what one New England farmer is doing to get her gobblers from the field to the table. Enter the "abattoir."On a recent chilly November morning, I visited Kate Stillman's farm, a 160-acre spread nestled in between some little hilly pastures and some woods. It's a beautiful little place. And it's been a farm here in Hardwick, Mass., since the early 1800s.

As darkness fell in Ferguson, Missouri, where authorities hoped to avoid a second night of chaos in the streets, Obama said destructive actions are criminal acts and those who responsible should be prosecuted. “To those who think that what happened in Ferguson is an excuse for…

    Last Thursday, the U.S. Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, chaired by Senator Carl Levin, released an alarming 396-page report that details how Wall Street’s too-big-to-fail banks have quietly, and often stealthily through shell companies, gained ownership of a stunning amount of the nation’s critical industrial commodities like oil, aluminum, copper, natural gas, and even uranium. The report said the scale of these bank holdings “appears to be unprecedented in U.S. history.” "The real power of banking is being able to refuse to turn on the loans tap for one…

  • HBO teams up with Tencent to sell its TV shows in China

    Guest GzJk7
    25 Nov 2014 | 5:49 pm
    China’s strained relationship with the concept of intellectual property is one of the reasons that you can buy a local copy of a Range Rover Evoque for a third of the price. That’s one of the reasons why western businesses are wary about selling their products in the nation, since it can often be time consuming and expensive. Still, it looks as if HBO is going to try and buck the trend after recruiting Tencent to distribute shows such as Game of Thrones, Rome and True Detective through the latter’s Tencent Video streaming service. It could be that the move is thanks, at…

Unfortunately, the Obama administration still isn’t counting last year’s sign-ups accurately. Jonathan Cohn of The New Republic has called the administration’s over-counting of Obamacare sign-ups “inexcusable.” And that’s from one of Obamacare’s biggest fans. What happened is that the administration counted 400,000 dental-only plans as Obamacare plans. On November 10, it announced that 7.1 million people signed up…

    Normally, when you successfully release the latest iteration of a blockbuster franchise, it's a good time to brag. Activision Blizzard says Call of Duty Advanced Warfare hashad the year's biggest launch of any entertainment property. That's big. But what's more interesting is what ATVI didn't say, and how Wall Street is still sending company shares up like an exo-skeleton boost.

    Cricketer Phillip Hughes is in hospital after being struck in the head by a ball at the SCG. Dan Peled/AAPLife-threatening brain injuries are thankfully rare in cricket and other sports, even those that involve collisions.

    John Williams' 1960 novel has been hailed as part of a pantheon of western masterpieces. Pam Morris, CC BY-SADespite the huge and belated praise now surrounding John Williams’ novel Stoner (1965), much less attention has been cast to his earlier novel, Butcher’s Crossing (1960). Still, it’s been rightly hailed as part of a pantheon of western masterpieces alongside Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian (1985) and Oakley Hall’s Warlock (1958). Some surface commentaries have hailed Butcher’s Crossing as the better “hit” novel. But more pertinent in this great literary western is…

Although they logically dominate today’s headlines, they do not represent the only side of Detroit’s economic development story.

    By John R. Graham The media seems to think that Obamacare’s second open enrollment is going just swimmingly. (How could it be going worse than last year’s?) Unfortunately, the Obama administration still isn’t counting last year’s sign-ups accurately. Jonathan Cohn of The New Republic has called the administration’s over-counting of Obamacare sign-ups “inexcusable.” And that’s from one of Obamacare’s biggest fans. What happened is that the administration counted 400,000 dental-only plans as Obamacare plans. On November 10, it announced that 7.1 million people signed up…

    Should Ukraine embark on a “hybrid war” against the Donbas enclave controlled by Russia and its proxies? One of Ukraine’s best military analysts, Yuri Butusov, the Russian-speaking editor of the Censor.net website, effectively argues that the answer is yes. Hybrid war is the term analysts apply to what many believe is Russia’s new way of war-making in southeastern Ukraine, one that employs a variety of means—propaganda, subversion, outright aggression, support for proxies, and the like—while remaining undeclared or denied. Butusov believes that the recent G-20 summit in Australia…

    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…

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…

    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.

    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.

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.

    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…

    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…

    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…

    Vladimir Kara-Murza
    25 Nov 2014 | 1:41 pm
    Earlier this month, the leaders of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE)—the oldest and largest pan-European organization that brings together national lawmakers from across the continent—visited Moscow for talks with State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin. The principal topic of discussion was the restoration of voting rights for Russian delegates, which were suspended in April following the annexation of Crimea. The talks brought good news for the Kremlin. According to Andreas Gross, a Swiss lawmaker and the Assembly’s rapporteur on Russia, most leaders of the…
  • Kremlin Returns to Soviet Practice of Stripping Citizenship

    Vladimir Kara-Murza
    10 Nov 2014 | 10:43 am
    MOSCOW — One of the ways of punishing political dissenters under the Soviet regime—alongside prisons, labor camps, and “special psychiatric hospitals”—was forced exile accompanied by a loss of citizenship, to ensure that “offenders” would never return to their country (in practice, “never” was curtailed by the collapse of communism in 1991). This was done, among others, to Nobel laureate Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, samizdat publisher Alexander Ginzburg, and Moscow Helsinki Group founder Yuri Orlov. The writer Vladimir Bukovsky—one of the most prominent figures in the Russian…

    26 Sep 2014 | 10:20 am
    MOSCOW — Last Sunday, Russian citizens once again refuted the Kremlin’s propaganda image of a nation united behind the aggressive actions of a dictator. Some 50,000 people, according to media estimates, marched through downtown Moscow to protest Vladimir Putin’s war against Ukraine and his escalating crackdown on what remains of civil liberties in Russia. For the first time in many months, the demonstration was backed by all of Russia’s pro-democracy parties, including the People’s Freedom Party, Yabloko, and Progress Party. Demonstrators were chanting “Peace to Ukraine, Freedom…

    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…

    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…

  • Time for a Hybrid War Against Russia?

    Alexander J. Motyl
    25 Nov 2014 | 9:34 am
    Should Ukraine embark on a “hybrid war” against the Donbas enclave controlled by Russia and its proxies? One of Ukraine’s best military analysts, Yuri Butusov, the Russian-speaking editor of the Censor.net website, effectively argues that the answer is yes. Hybrid war is the term analysts apply to what many believe is Russia’s new way of war-making in southeastern Ukraine, one that employs a variety of means—propaganda, subversion, outright aggression, support for proxies, and the like—while remaining undeclared or denied. Butusov believes that the recent G-20 summit in Australia…
  • Does Ukraine’s Reform Plan Measure Up?

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