Buying Political Influence The Impact of Dark Money on American Politics

With the mid-term elections just weeks away, a recent report from Open Secrets looks at the growing issue of dark money in politics.   Dark money is defined as political spending by groups whose donor base remains hidden, largely because of loopholes in the IRS tax code.  Under normal circumstances, Super PACs are required by election laws to disclose the names of individuals and corporations that are their contributors.  Groups that are classified as nonprofits under Article 501[c][4] and those that are social welfare organizations are not required to disclose the identities of their contributors.  These 501[c][4] nonprofits can spend unlimited amounts on independence election expenses.  Examples of 501[c][4] groups include Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS which has donated money to the right-leaning American Crossroads PAC and the left-leaning Priorities USA which has...

Asda faces mass legal action against unequal pay for women

U.K. second largest retailer Asda faces mass legal action against unequal pay for women by more than one thousand staff currently being employed in their stores. The staff which mostly consists of female workers - claim despite the fact that their jobs are of "equal value" to male employees at Asda's distribution centres who are taking higher pay. The law firm Leigh Day, which is currently representing hundreds of former and current employees of the supermarket chain; say the pay gap can be as much as ᆪ4 an hour. The claim is made on the basis of the fact that store employees also carry and lift products as part of their duties. {ads1}The law firm says it has already lodged nearly 1,500 employment tribunal claims on behalf of individuals - around 80% of whom...

Will Ukraine Commit Economic Suicide?

Ukraine is on the brink of committing economic suicide after imposing a crippling 55 percent tax on private gas producers, while parliament prepares to vote on next year's budget, which aims for a continuation of the same. The Oct. 14 budget vote—which is already a month late—is a major condition for Ukraine's next credit tranche from the European Union, but if the 2015 budget goes through as proposed, it will decimate independent gas production, remove any potential for Ukrainian energy independence and deal a further blow to the already struggling economy. "Kiev's attempt at fiscal discipline to fund the war effort in the east and stave off an economic crisis is not working, and the end result is going to be economic suicide," Robert Bensh, majority shareholder of Cub Energy, Ukraine's fourth-largest...

How Long Will ISIS Last Economically?

How Long Will ISIS Last Economically?

There’s no trade without war; there’s no war without trade,” the famous quip by Jan Pieterzoon Coen, a leading officer of the Dutch East India Company in the 17th century, not only points to the dark beginnings of capitalism, it also spells out a basic fact: You need money to wage war, loads of it. So from where does the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) gets its money and how stable are its finances? Much has been said about ISIS’s professional organizational structure with regional governors and specialized agencies for portfolios like propaganda, secret services, military and finance. The organization indeed publishes an annual report like corporations do. On 400+ pages it outlines what kind of activities it has pursued ranging from car bombs to proselytizing. Apart from gaining an intra-organizational overview of... Read more

Khan Brings Another Challenge For Nawaz

Today the chief of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf held a rally in the city of Gujrat where people poured out in thousands to listen to the address of their leader. The leader started the address with an ayat from the Quran, ‘Allah I worship you and only ask you for help.’ He further said that he wants to start by thanking the people of Gujrat for giving him such a warm welcome. He further added that he condemns the attack on Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman but yesterday what he said about the women who come into ‘Dharnas’ totally disappointed him. He also said that if Nawaz Sharif and his private secretary Khursheed Shah think that if he will move his ‘dharna’ from Islamabad, then they should not be mistaken. He also thanked Dr. Tahirul...

Soros Signals Argentina’s Shale is Biggest Place to Be

One of the world’s legendary investors is upping his bet on Argentina’s shale oil and gas industry in a show of confidence for shale production in South America’s largest unconventional prize —and a big boost for both supermajors and smaller players making big waves in the heart of new discovery areas. George Soros has doubled his stake in YPF SA, the state-owned oil company in Argentina, which sits atop some of the world’s largest shale oil and gas resources, and is about to get even larger following a new discovery over the last couple of weeks of a second key shale play.  Argentina holds an estimated 27 billion barrels of technically recoverable oil and 802 trillion cubic feet of technically recoverable shale gas, much of it located in the Vaca Muerta, an...

A study in the art of fast bowling and captaincy

He has shown the menacing influence fast bowling has on a cricket match. Irrespective of the conditions, a bowler of his ilk can threaten any batsman. Sadly, bowlers of his ilk are rare to come by, which is what makes Mitchell Johnson a greater hazard for the opposition. In practice sessions, it’s hard to replicate what Johnson does. Steyn and Morkel bowl fast too. But not as fast nor are they as life-threatening as Johnson. A bowling machine doesn’t provide the angle of his round arm action. Nor does it replicate the death stare from him, nor the moustache, nor the variety in deliveries.  Johnson still does spray the ball around. Though his control has improved a great deal, there are moments in which the old Johnson appears. For my mind,... Read more

QBs Recovering from Offseason Surgeries as NFL Training Camps Open

It has been an off-season of recuperation for a number of NFL quarterbacks who underwent surgery in recent months. With training camps now getting into full swing, all eyes will be on these recovering stars, whose health is critical to their teams’ success in the upcoming NFL season. Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton underwent surgery in late March to repair an ankle injury suffered in the Panthers’ 23-10 NFC Divisional Playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers. While Newton has undergone extensive rehab prior to training camp, and is medically cleared for full workouts, he is expected to need all of camp to regain his form ahead of the start of the regular season. Last season, Newton led the Panthers to a 12-4 record and their first NFC South title since 2008.... Read more

How Governments Use Fear

An interesting research article on the Independent Institute's website looks at the role of fear in the government's arsenal of ways that they control the masses.  This is particularly pertinent in this time of the seemingly endless war against terror and the Ebola outbreak despite governments' assurances that they have the situation under control.    In case you weren't aware of it, The Independent Institute is a non-profit, non-partisan scholarly research and educational organization that sponsors in-depth studies of critical social and economic issues.  The organization seeks to advance peaceful, prosperous and free societies that are not grounded in partisan interests.  Dr. Robert Higgs, the author of "Fear: The Foundation of Every Government's Power", has a degree in economics from John Hopkins University and has been a visiting scholar at Oxford University...

A conference held by Edge Hill University’s Institute for Creative Enterprise (ICE) on 4 and 5 September will discuss what ‘independence’ means for and within Liverpool’s creative and cultural sectors. Paddy Hoey, Lecturer in Media at the University said: “Liverpool has always prided itself on standing alone from the rest of Britain like a cultural island of itself. We want to explore what sets Liverpool artists and musicians apart and the prospects of this continuing in an era of globalisation.” A panel of media and cultural experts will explore the roots of the city’s political and cultural independence and the role that the independent sector can play in Liverpool’s regeneration.

New Imprint Looking to Translate Women’s Poetry, Redress Translation’s Gender Balance

Periscope is a new imprint from A Midsummer Night’s Press devoted to women’s poetry in translation. Publisher-translator-poet Lawrence Schimel answered questions (why women? why translation? how exactly will this work?) ahead of the house’s Nov. 1 launch: ArabLit: Why a new imprint? What was its initial inspiration? (When exactly did it “officially” launch?) Lawrence Schimel: Our official launch is November 1. Advance copies of the books are already available direct from us, but it takes time for them to make their way through the distribution channels, from printer to distributor to bookstores. As for the inspiration behind the imprint: as a translator myself, I’m well aware of the resistance to work in translation from many publishers (not always the same as resistance from readers). A Midsummer Night’s Press had published one previous translation, in our Body Language imprint, and so I...

We do physio; we exercise; and ever so slowly, we manage to work our way back up to 9. 9 isn’t 10, but 9 is way better than 3, and for that we’re grateful. 9 is good. We can live with that.

Ebola and the Challenges Facing the Medical Community

An article in the American College of Physicians' Annals of Internal Medicine gives us an idea of how challenging it will be for medical facilities to care for Ebola patients in North America.   Let's get a bit of background first.  Scientists have developed the Biohazard Safety Level protocols to assist medical professionals and researchers who are working with hazardous materials.  There are four biohazard levels, BSL-1, BSL-2, BSL-3 and BSL-4 as shown on this diagram:   Here is a summary of each level:   BSL-1: If you work in a lab that is designated a BSL-1, the microbes there are not known to consistently cause disease in healthy adults and present minimal potential hazard to laboratorians and the environment. An example of a microbe that is typically worked with at a BSL-1 is a nonpathogenic strain of E. coli.   Personal... Read more

Blogger Backs Down Scotia Bank

After filing a defamation and stalking claim against a PEI blogger, the Bank of Nova Scotia withdraws their legal action By Stephen Pate – This is one of those David and Goliath stories where the little guy wins. PEI political muckraker Red Like Me and it’s journalist owner Rob McEachern were sued by the Bank of Nova Scotia over a story about investment advisor fraud.

Baltic Sea Mystery similar to Mystery of Everyman’s Way

Baltic Sea Mystery similar to Mystery of Everyman’s Way

There was a strange object discovered in the summer of 2011 by a group of Swedish treasure hunters from an ocean explorer team from Sweden.  Quite recently, this Ocean X Team conducted a second expedition to the circle-shaped object in the Baltic Sea and found something they have never experienced before. First they thought it was just stone or a rock cliff, but after further observations the object appeared more as a huge mushroom, rising 3-4 meters/10-13 feet from the seabed, with rounded sides and rugged edges. The object had an egg shaped hole leading into it from the top, as an opening. On top of the object they also found strange stone circle formations, almost looking like small fireplaces. The stones were covered in something resembling soot. “During my 20-year... Read more

Why The Debate Over Energy Storage Utterly Misses The Point

Why The Debate Over Energy Storage Utterly Misses The Point

The debate over which energy storage technology will prove to be the best in the long-term is woefully misguided. Many technologies have been tested in the field or been fully installed, but their real-world applications have created constant questions around a number of fixed themes: the three-points concern cost, technology, and potential environmental impact, as well as the need for specific regulation and end-of-life management. Here, engineers have run into the dilemma of energy storage technology. It is difficult for any energy storage method, at least at the current stage of development, to produce the amounts of power and energy required at a cost-effective price. However, passing judgment on energy storage by using this equation alone is simply incorrect. After all, we do not expect renewable energy to provide a one-size-fits-all solution... Read more

What Can You Do to Stop Microsoft Spam Emails

A few tips for Windows Live and Hotmail email users to stop spam, scams and hacking By Stephen Pate – Microsoft claims that it stops 10 million scam, spam and phishing emails a minute. It’s not enough. I get up to 10 emails a day from people  who purports to be Microsoft asking me to update my account, check my security settings or like the illustration above get the latest version of some Microsoft software. Why can’t Microsoft filter emails that contain false claims of being from Microsoft? There are millions of people who fall prey to these claims – the innocent, people with cognitive disabilities, the elderly. All of these emails come on my Hotmail account, which is set to block everything from people who are not in my address book. When I running Office 365 earlier this... Read more

New school year, new school… new friends (please!!)

When you’re all cozy in a friendship you can totally relax. Even going to school is more fun because your friend is there. But when you move to a school where you know no one, and your bff friend from your old school stops acting like a friend, then nothing feels right. I recently got this email from a girl who is in that sad place: Where do I fit it?!  The Girls' Friendship Q&A Book, by Annie Fox, iIllustration by Erica DeChavez © 2014, Annie Fox and Erica DeChavez Hey Terra, Last year I moved to a new place.

The Five Best World War II Museums for Americans to Visit in Normandy

On June 6, 1944, 150,000 American, Canadian and British troops landed in rough seas along a sixty-mile series of flat sandy beaches on the French coast at Normandy. The liberation of France and Western Europe was underway. They fought their way up sloping white sand dunes, towering cliffs, and through small seaside villages until, after two month’s bitter fighting, they broke out of Normandy. Rampaging across France and Belgium, they only slowed once they hit the Netherlands, Luxembourg and the German border. A cottage industry of more than 25 World War Two museums has sprung up across Normandy, with a number of them dedicated to the US forces. Here are the must-see museums about the US forces for Americans to visit. MUSEE DU DEBARQUEMENT (LANDING MUSEUM), UTAH BEACH {ads1}Located on the westernmost allied... Read more

Just As We Thought, Connor Cruise Is Drifting Away From Scientology

Photo: Instagram{ads1}It was inevitable. Tom Cruise’s son Connor, who is now a successful DJ, is drifting away from Scientology. He’s been socializing with sophisticated people and started developing doubts about the so-called “church.” According to RadarOnline, reports have surfaced that Connor has finally decided to LEAVE the church and he told his father. Surprisingly, Tom is not disowning him – he wants his son to be happy and doesn’t care about his religious beliefs. Since Tom is so important to the church, they are unlikely to make a fuss.

Brad Pitt's New Movie 'Fury'

'Gone Girl' edges out 'The Book of Life,' while 'Best of Me' suffers the lowest opening ever for a Nicholas Sparks adaptation. Thanks to an army of older males,David Ayer's Fury won the North American box office battle with $23.5 million from 3,173 theaters, topplingGone Girl from the top spot and delivering one of the best openings of all time for a World War II war movie, not accounting for inflation. It's also another win for star Brad Pitt. Fury is a career best for Ayer. As fate would have it, the year's other high-profile WWII drama, the upcoming Unbroken, is directed by Pitt's wife, Angelina Jolie. {ads1}Sony, QED International and LStar Capital spent $68 million to make Fury, featuring Pitt as a battle-hardened Army sergeant in command of a Sherman tank and its five-man crew as they attempt to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany (Sony is aggressively marketing the film to...

Music Review Kill Dil

Music :: Filmi, Thursday, October 16th 2014

Expectations: Shaad Ali is known for a good music sense - and has a great tuning with Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. Music: The acoustic-heavy, almost R.D. Burman-esque title-song 'Kill Dil' (Sonu Nigam, Shankar Mahadevan), a breezy, instrument-dominated groovy track, reminds us in parts of the epic title-music of Sholay. While Gulzar recites the introductory verse (which he also does in two more tracks) Sonu Nigam and Shankar Mahadevan sing with Kishore Kumar-esque abandon in the largely meaningless track that works while listening only because of its infectious rhythm and pace. We liked the sitar riffs in 'Happy Budday' (Sukhwinder Singh-Sonu Nigam) where Gulzar uses the imaginative line, 'Bas Aashiqon Pe Rahe Curfew' before taking a tangential look at the occasion. Sukhwinder sounds miscast in the song, as his rendition is somehow too harsh for a... Read more

Low Oil Prices Hurting U.S. Shale Operations

The Price-Earnings Ratio and the Overbought Stock Market

The recent volatility in the stock market has come as shock to many investors, however, looking at historical data, we shouldn't really be all that surprised.   {ads1}Back in 2000, Yale Professor Robert Shiller, co-creator of the widely quoted Case-Shiller U.S. Home Price Index, wrote a book called Irrational Exuberance.  In the book, he used a data set consisting of monthly stock prices, dividends and earnings to ascertain whether or not the stock market is overvalued compared to historical levels.  The data...
