RAMALLAH, WEST BANK - OCTOBER 18: A Palestinian boy wearing a Hamas headband and armband sits in an area next to a checkpoint as people wait for the release of Palestinian prisoners from Israeli prisons next to Bitunian checkpoint on October 18, 2011 in Ramallah, West bank. A high-profile prisoner swap, which will see the release of captive Israel Defense Forces soldier Gilad Shalit, began before dawn today.

The anti-US Protest in Tribal Region

The Pakistani armed forces blocked a convoy carrying thousands of Pakistanis and a small deputation of U.S. anti-war activists from incoming a lawless ethnic province along the border with Afghanistan on Sunday to objection American drone strikes. The group, led by cricket star twisted elected official Imran Khan and his opinionated party, was turned back just miles from the edge of South Waziristan.
After an hour of fruitless consultation, Khan announced that the caravan would back down to the city of Tank, about 15 kilometers (nine miles) away. There, he delivered a talking to the crowd of about 10,000

Footnotes on the Higher Education Bubble's Many Failures 

..Americans, as Malcolm Harris recently pointed out, now owe almost a trillion dollars in student loans, more than they owe in credit card debt. Student debt, he explained, “is an exceptionally punishing kind to have. Not only is it inescapable through bankruptcy, but student loans have no expiration date and collectors can garnish wages, social security payments, and even unemployment benefits.”

...All this to pay for an education that—as we have already seen—means little, intellectually, to many of those who are courting debtors’ prison to pay for it. The unkindest cut of all, of course, is that those who drop out must still carry the full burden of the loans that so many of them have taken out—even though they will, in all probability, earn less and fare worse in hard times than graduates. Yet even unemployment among graduates has been rising—as have rates of student loan default.

New Orleans students walk out in support of their teachers - "But students at the school Friday expressed little trust in Dobard or his policies. Several of them questioned how he could hire an entirely new staff for this school year and then fire them six weeks later. Students said they had built relationships with teachers and staff members, and now that process has to start all over again. “The point we’re trying to make is that this is going to set us back,” senior Terrell Major said."

He isn't content merely to express concern about the federal deficit. His particular targets are Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, which he calls "entitlement" programs and which he wants to cut back in a manner that would strike deeply at the middle class."

In 2007, France officially banned Monsanto's Lasso weedkiller formula from use in the country in accordance with a European Union (EU) directive enacted in 2006 prohibiting the chemical from further use on crops in any member countries. Don't you think the U.S. should also ban such chemicals to protect our health?

Cambodia drops case of murdered forest activist, Chut Wutty


An investigation into the mysterious death of Cambodian forest activist, Chut Wutty, has been dismissed by the courts, which critics allege is apart of an ongoing cover up. The court decided that since the suspect in Wutty's death, In Rattana, was also dead there was no need to proceed. Chut Witty was shot to death while escorting two journalists to a logging site run by Timbergreen. Wutty, whose death made international news, was a prominent activist against illegal logging in Cambodia.

Unfortunately, mainstream medicine doesn't think the balance of beneficial and pathogenic gut bacteria is a big deal for your health. They prescribe antibiotics that destroy all types of bacteria indiscriminately, much like chemo destroys all types of cells.

One of the more persistent economic ideas rattling through the intelligentsia is that the last 250 years of amazing innovation, productivity and growth —from the steam-engine birth of the first industrial revolution in the 1700s to last month’s launch of the iPhone 5 — have come to an end. The nations of the developed world, especially the United States, have seen their best centuries. Growth has peaked. The future is flatlined.

The hot idea that the United States may be at the beginning of a prolonged perio
d of slow or even zero growth gets a thorough trashing from Roger Pielke Jr. of the University of Colorado.  Several pillars of a recent version of end-of-growth theory come tumbling down in Prof. Pieke's review, includi...
