Drums of War - the US media and the Iranian 'threat'
( I posted a link to the Supreme leader's blog and his position of nukes in the sidebar. Funny how Web of Trust routinely redlists some of the best content on the web. Not that I believe it accidental or innocent on the part of the evaluator. Suggestion : get the report and read the comments, which often rebut the listing )

The ugly* truth behind Michigan`s budget surplus
 *My candidate for best use of British Understatement so far this year

The dangerous defense* bill heading towards Obama`s desk
* Another misuse of language. Total disrespect and disabling of the Constitution which Congress, Obama and military officers swear to uphold...is not defense.

Arab Awakening

The Nation's special issue on The Arab Awakening is now available free to educators (with full reprint rights for your students).
Articles are devoted to the situations in Egypt, Syria, Bahrain, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Palestine and Israel, as well as thematic issues affecting the entire region, such as the struggles for social justice, labor rights and self-determination. Wrapping it all up is an analysis of Washington's response* to these cataclysmic events.
This link will direct you and your students to the free download:

( *or not - since Washington provoked it via Colour Revolution, Davos economic manipulation, Twitter-Facebook use by agents provocateurs, blogs, etc. You don`t think it coincidence that so many governments complained about media and the net I trust : especially Egypt, Libya and Syria. Iran, North Korea, Venezuela...their coverage has always been past hope of redemption. )

New Theory of Life Claims to Unite Fields of Science
One debate swirls around the scientific merit of James Lovelock’s popular Gaia hypothesis. By showing that the Earth is theoretically synonymous with life, Andrulis’ paradigm substantiates the Gaian premise that all organisms and their surroundings on Earth are closely integrated to form a single self-regulating complex system.
