How the GOP Primary Became A Contest Among America’s Rich Drunk Uncles
Gawker-  By Mobutu Sese Seko Feb 23, 2012  2:05 PM The after effects of the Citizens United ruling shouldn’t shock anyone.

There is one byproduct of this mess, though, that is unintentionally fun to observe: Americans get to watch billionaires hijack

The Sun may yet set.
On Saturday and Sunday, both the Guardian and Independent suggested that rather than it being an atypical moment of Murdochian chutzpah and genius, the bringing forward of the launch of the piss-poor Sun on Sunday (or The Sun Sunday as the paper's front page has it) was to ensure it hit the streets before the worst of the allegations against the paper had come to light. And so it has proved. You

It's Thursday, it's London, so it must be the Somalian conference.

FTL Neutrinos: Closing In on a Solution
The news that the faster-than-light neutrino results announced to such widespread interest by the OPERA collaboration have now been explained has been spreading irresistibly around the Internet.

M-Dwarfs: A New and Wider Habitable Zone
I want to work a new paper on red dwarf habitability in here because it fits in so well with yesterday’s discussion of the super-Earth GJ1214b. The latter orbits an M-dwarf in Ophiuchus that yields a hefty 1.4 percent transit depth, meaning scientists have a strong lightcurve to work with as they examine this potential ‘waterworld.’ In transit terms, red dwarfs, much smaller and cooler than the Su

Oligarchy in the U.S.A.
In 2005, Citigroup offered its high net-worth clients in the United States a concise statement of the threats they and their money faced. The report told them they were the leaders of a "plutonomy," an economy driven by the spending of its ultra-rich citizens. "At the heart of plutonomy is income inequality," which is made possible by "capitalist-friendly governments and tax regimes." The danger
Forgetting the Past, One Military Movie at a Time
When philosopher George Santayana said, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it," he meant it as an admonition--not as an endorsement of mass amnesia or historical revision. This should be obvious. Yet those operating at the shadowy intersection of the Pentagon and Hollywood either don't understand--or, more likely, refuse to understand--the thrust of the aphorism. Instead,

The Ladder Of Success In America Is Often Placed Out Of Reach
In America, the ladder to success is often out of reach. With so many policies in our nation favoring the most wealthy, one might even say that it is willfully placed out of reach. Here is an article on some of the difficulties of advancing up the social and class ladder in American from the radicals at The Economist. And on the same subject from The Huffington Post.  This blog is a big believer

Reality Behind Mehran Bank Scandal
By Lt Col Zaheerul Hassan (R) Everyone knows that Pakistan is facing multiple crises of grave nature, which have continuously been threatening the security of the country. But some internal elements such as our media, so-called NGOs and politicians leave no stone unturned in maligning Pak Army, especially ISI at this critical hour. It seems that while playing in the hands of foreign enemies, these
Why Internal Elements Target ISI?
By Sajjad Shaukat At this critical juncture, while Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) is countering the sinister designs of secret agencies like American CIA, Indian RAW and Israeli Mossad which have continuously been supporting suicide attacks, target-killings, abductions, bomb blasts etc. in Pakistan, it is most regrettable that without knowing the ground realities and services of this agency, ju
Dangerous Consequences of Attacking Iran
By Sajjad Shaukat Very tension arose between Iran and the US-led EU which imposed tough sanctions against Tehran in January this year, which included a freeze of the country’s central bank assets and an oil embargo set to begin in July. These sanctions are part of Western efforts to curtail Iran’s nuclear programme, which the West says is aimed at developing atomic weapons. While Iranian leadershi
Indian Attempt to Entrap Saudi Arabia
By Sajjad Shaukat Pakistan’s media is so engaged in indicating various issues,  threatening the security of the country that very important news about the Indian Defence Minister AK Antony’s recent visit to Saudi Arabia went unnoticed. It is of particular attention that it was the first visit of any Indian defence minister to Saudi Arabia. However, on February 13, Indian Defence Minister AK Antony

What's Happening in Saudi Arabia?
From The Global Mail: It's all happening in Saudi Arabia's Eastern Province, home to most of the Kingdom's Shia minority, and 90 per cent of its oil. Seven people have been shot dead by Saudi security forces since October 2011, two in the past month alone. The Saudi Interior Ministry says these deaths resulted from gun battles between protesters and police. But in all amateur videos that show prot

Last night, I took my son to a movie, The Secret World of Arrietty. To see it, we had to go to a multiplex at the Arden Fair Mall.

I was surprised to be among so many people at night, even though, by mall standards, it was semi-deserted, because I am invariably home with

As the links between food security and climate change become increasingly inextricable, the necessity for sustainable agriculture is now a universal concern.

The judgement of the US intelligence community and others in the government is that Iran does not have a current nuclear weapons program.Also, they don't have missiles that can reach the US and aren't likely to for several years at the earliest.

Edinburgh’s cultural life is under threat
The cultural life of Edinburgh is under serious threat due to changes to Public Entertainment Licenses. These proposed changes will impose new fees and place an unworkable administrative burden on free admission arts centres and grassroots cultural initiatives across the country. This will affect visual art, music, performance, community and charity-led events and many other forms of public event.
