"This is the excellent foppery of the world, that when we are sick in fortune (often the surfeits of our own behavior) we make guilty of our disasters the sun, the moon, and stars: as if we were villains on necessity; fools by heavenly compulsion; knaves, thieves, and treacherous by spherical predominance; drunkards, liars, and adulterers by an enforced obedience of planetary influence; and all that we are evil in, by a divine thrusting on.

Why the PUSH toward World War III?

Majia's Blog at Majia's Blog - 2 hours ago
I've been following the rise of jingoistic rhetoric emanating from both US political parties and Japan. Russia and China are the new enemies in this rhetoric, both of which threaten western (including Japan here) financial and political hegemony. The escalation of tensions echoes the build up to World War I, although fascistic tendencies that more closely resemble the build-up to World War II also echo. Tell me, why the push for World War III? Everyone knows its unwinable so why push toward it? Is it all charade, a grand distraction? What is it really going on here?

Peter Cresswell at Not PC - 10 hours ago
A Twitter exchange recently threw out some good ideas and great reading recommendations. Here’s my quick summary.

Especially so when modern “identity poli... more »

© Kirill Kallinikov / Sputnik *Washington Times:* *Russia threatens to kill pact to share skies over Syria* *Say no time to comply amid increased attacks* Russian military leaders are threatening to call off the longstanding agreement with the U.S. to share the skies above Syria, potentially putting American aircraft in the region at risk. On Thursday, Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook pressed Moscow to adhere to the deal, saying it was vital in order to “avoid misunderstanding and miscalculation” between the two countries.

Specifically, the 2012 Panel said: … it is only in exceptional circumstances that the public purse should bear the legal costs of a judicial officer who has engaged in judicial misconduct.

We are engaged in a new Cold War. Tom Walkom writes: In the West, the old Cold War was portrayed as a battle between Communist dictatorship and capitalist freedom. Given that Russia has now embraced capitalism, those categories are no longer quite so neat. As a result, the new Cold War is a little vaguer. It is portrayed as a battle between thuggery and the rule of law — brutality versus niceness. In this scenario, the U.S. and its allies are said to be the nice ones. Russia, personified in its president, Vladimir Putin, is said to represent brutality. Calculated brutality is not... more »

If - like Theresa May - you say that UK-born workers sometimes find themselves out of work because of low-skilled immigration, then the BBC's Reality Check has a simple message for you: You're wrong.

So that's you told! The BBC has spoken. (John Simpson would be so proud of them).

The development of a new non-invasive technique for detecting Down’s Syndrome in early pregnancy has raised an ethical dilemma.
