(In which we promise never to yell at you in all caps) ------------------------------ Last night, a Fox astrologer said Trump will have two guardian angels looking over him. And one of them, I'm sure, is Putin.

tasks facing mankind today require equal courage to that of those heroes in the past

Bob Dinn at balance10 - 4 hours ago
*While* the mysteries of Christ have been contemplated by many, only the few have penetrated the depth of the wonders of his certain knowledge, his inestimable outreach, his power of ineffable light, calculated to part the veils of illusion and reveal the infinite capacity of God to externalize not only in the natural order but also in the spiritual order a kingdom without end. The more men meditate upon the Christ and upon spiritual things which buoy up the heart above the restless tides of human thought the more intense will become the light around them and the farther they wi... more »

Was it Britain with its Brexit backtracking and bumbling; loan-shark, land-grabbing China; a Saudi crown prince pilloried with a public-relations disaster; or carbon-tax coveting French president Emmanuel Macron? Writer Walter Russell Meade mentions all the preceding in a *Wall Street Journal* opinion piece. But the biggest loser of all, he says, and he just may be correct, is the liberal international order itself.

The U.S. Marine Corps Might Have a New Way to Sink Chinese Warships (And the F-35 Could Help)

David Axe at Test Feed Using Fields - 6 hours ago
*David Axe* *Security, * "Imagine a Chinese flotilla sailing toward some remote island group near Japan or The Philippines during some near-future war. A Marine rocket battery could quickly deploy to one island aboard Marine or Air Force transports and lob a few rockets at the Chinese ships while the transports idled nearby."

*Mark Episkopos* *Security, Asia* A game changer? China’s collection of over 7,000 tanks, while numerically impressive, is inflated by increasingly outdated iterations of 1950’s Soviet T-series tanks like the T-54. The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has taken active measures over the past several decades to renew their aging lineup, culminating with the Type 99 that can give competing U.S. and Russian flagship tanks a run for their money. But as the Type 99 evolved in the direction of greater firepower and expanded armaments suite with the recent Type 99A, the need became appar... more »

US Policy Toward Cuba Attacked America's Freedom and Values

Jacob G. Hornberger at 8 hours ago
[image: undefined] The decades-long US interventionist policy against Cuba failed to achieve its goal of removing Fidel Castro from power and replacing him with a pro-US regime, similar to the pro-US Batista regime that the Cuban revolution ousted from power in 1959. More important, interventionism against Cuba ended up attacking the freedom and values of the American people. During the Cold War, US officials claimed that their interventionist policy against Cuba was justified because Cuba posed a grave threat to US national security.

'Goal Infrastructure' Creates A Road To Successful New Year's Resolutions

The Conversation at Science 2.0 blogs - 8 hours ago
Every year most of us make New Year’s resolutions. Eat healthier. Exercise regularly. Invest more in valued relationships. Learn a language. And so on. Often they are the same resolutions as last year. Why do our resolutions often so swiftly wither away? A prime culprit in this annual roller coaster of optimism and disappointment is overconfidence in the power of our intentions. The excitement of a new year (and perhaps the fruit of celebrating a little too hard) cloud remembering a hard fact of life: good intentions readily evaporate without a trace in the face of everyday exp... more »
