It is encouraging and demonstrating.  This is justified by the communiqué phrase “Council, recalling its earlier pronouncements on the issue of sanctions against those undermining the quest for peace, violating international humanitarian law and...

Wall Street Bonuses and America's Minimum Wage Earners

Wall Street Bonuses and America's Minimum Wage Earners

Recent news that the Wall Street banking system handed out bonuses totalling $28.5 billion to its 167,800 employees during 2014 is really not all that shocking, even when the bonuses are added to the average base salary of $190,970 (2013 average).  According to the New York State Comptroller, the average bonus paid in New York City's security industry rose by 2 percent in 2014, hitting $172,860 (or 3.3 times the median American household income in 2013) even though the industry was slightly less profitable in 2014 than it was in 2013.  This is the highest level of bonuses paid since the financial crisis.  In the two previous years, the average bonus rose by a total of 52 percent, far above the level in 2014.   A recent analysis from the Institute for Policy Studies helps to put...

Asia, Monday, March 23rd 2015

Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed has offered condolences on the death of Lee Kuan Yew, said to be modern Singapore’s founding father, who died on March 23 in Singapore General Hospital.

HMAS Tobruk arrives to support Vanuatu mission

HMAS Tobruk has arrived in Port Vila to assist the Vanuatu government in relief operations to repair damage in the wake of the devastating tropical cyclone Pam. HMAS Tobruk, with 335 personnel on board, sailed from Townsville on 18 March with troops and equipment from the 3rd Combat Engineer Regiment and additional Australian Aid supplies.

Quebec Student Group Consider Legal Action against Police Tactics

ASSE student group has openly denounced the behavior of police after a protester, Naomie Tremblay-Trudeau, was shot in the face with part of a tear-gas canister at an anti-austerity demonstration. Addressing media outlets on Friday, Naomie announced that she is considering legal action against the police after video of her being shot at point-blank range in Quebec City circulated on YouTube. A representative of the ASSE student group, Camille Godbout, highlighted that this was not an isolated incident. She pointed out that a police dog attacked a protester earlier this week in Quebec City and that another demonstrator was injured after being allegedly struck by a police baton in Montreal. These protests aim to get the Couillard government to reverse its austerity measures that have allegedly affected the quality of public... Read more

Minister Smith Says PM Cameron Won’t Serve Full Second Term if Reelected

One of Prime Minister David Cameron’s senior Cabinet ministers, Iain Duncan Smith, has mentioned in his remarks that he does not foresee David Cameron serving a full second term as Prime Minister if he wins the General Election. According to Smith, i.e. one of Mr. Cameron’s predecessors as Tory leader, Mr. Cameron would stand down as Prime Minister before the 2020 election. Smith’s comments contradict Mr. Cameron’s claim last weekend in a BBC interview, when he alleged that he was “putting myself forward for the full five years.” Quite evidently, Smith’s remarks unveil the confusion among Mr. Cameron's top ministers in the wake of the Prime Minister's surprise admission in an interview with the corporation's deputy political editor James Landale. The Work and Pensions secretary, Mr. Duncan Smith, revealed on... Read more

The Propaganda War With Russia

There is an interesting twist to the ongoing war of words with Russia over its actions in Ukraine that is little discussed in the mainstream media.  The United States State Department is using its Russian language UkrProgress Twitter account with the hashtag #UnitedforUkraine to counter what the United States considers to be Russian propaganda on its activities in Ukraine.  While most of the tweets are in Russian, here are some of the more interesting English language posts by the State Department:     If you follow the links listed on the tweets, many of them take you to stories on the ShareAmerica website.  What is ShareAmerica?  It is the Department of State's "...platform for sharing compelling stories and images that spark discussion and debate on important topics like democracy, freedom of expression, innovation, entrepreneurship, education and...

Indian Budget Highlights

A lot has been written about the budget presented by Jaitley last Saturday. While a section of industrialists & economists have given a thumbs up to the budget, another section feels that it lacked Big Bang reforms. While corporates are happy at the prospect of reduction in tax rates, consumers are disappointed because of increase in service tax and the salaried class was expecting much more. Will try to break down the budget for the Aam Aadmi. The main items of the budget are listed below:     RE: Revised Estimates, BE: Budget Estimates Fiscal Deficit = Total Expenditure less Total Revenue Receipts less Recoveries of Loans & Advances less Miscellaneous Capital Receipts The Fiscal deficit is financed by market loans, short term borrowings, state provident fund, external assistance etc. Budget is not only about economics...

The Origins of Iran's Nuclear Program

The Origins of Iran's Nuclear Program

Thanks to the recent appearance of Benjamin Netanyahu in Congress, the issue of Iran's nuclear program and the current P5 1 discussions have made the headlines.  In this posting, I want to look at the origins of Iran's nuclear program and how the United States was involved.   Iran's first nuclear reactor was supplied by the United States in1967.  Back then, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, better known to the West as the Shah of Iran, was a staunch ally of the United States.  In case you've forgotten history, it was a United States coup d'etat that brought the Shah into power after democratically elected Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh, who nationalized the country's oil industry, was deposed. Here is an aerial photograph of the Tehran Research Reactor:   The five megawatt light water Tehran Research Reactor was designed to... Read more

Cuba's Oil Potential - Is It a Motivating Factor For Ending the Embargo?

The thawing of relations between the United States and Cuba after fifty years of pointless embargo is interesting, particularly given that American business investments that were nationalized in 1959, may at some point be reopened to U.S.-based companies.  As a petroleum geoscientist and a world class cynic, my mind naturally turns to oil, the hydrocarbon that lubricates the world's economy.  As you will see in this posting, Cuba appears to have potential for significant hydrocarbon reserves.   Under the current embargo, Cuba cannot access U.S. oilfield equipment for both drilling and environmental protection.  The embargo prohibits the exporting and re-exporting of items that contain more than 10 percent American components under the De Minimus Rule under Sections 734.4 and 736.2 (b)(2) of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).  What is particularly interesting about the...

Dwane Casey Named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month

The Toronto Raptors announced Thursday that head coach Dwane Casey has been named NBA Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for December. This is the first time Casey has won the honour. He joins Lenny Wilkens (April 2002) and Sam Mitchell (January 2007) as the only Raptors coaches to be named Coach of the Month. Toronto went 8-6 in December under Casey’s guidance and was one of five teams in the Eastern Conference to finish the month with a record above .500. The Raptors were 0-3 prior to a seven-player trade December 8 that sent leading scorer Rudy Gay to Sacramento. Casey incorporated four new players into the roster and the team responded by winning eight of the next 11 games. The Raptors were 6-3 on the road last month, which included... Read more

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

Why Has CBC Not Reported The Story of Government Investment in eGambling on PEI

What kind of journalism are Canadian taxpayers funding at the CBC? By Stephen Pate – Canadians are being shocked by a new political scandal involving an aborted attempt by the PEI Government to establish illegal gambling on PEI. Using First Nations Canadians as a front, the PEI government was organizing and investing in a scheme that have could led to organized crime in other areas. Small island, big bet: How PEI lost its online gambling gamble headlined the story in the Globe and Mail on February 27th, 2015. “The fact that the plan was illegal – and had elsewhere been used by the Mafia – is one of this story’s more mundane details.  In September, 2008, then-finance minister Wes Sheridan released a report on the province’s gaming strategy. He warned that the rapid growth... Read more

Lennie Gallant’s moving tribute to Veterans – Wounded

PEI singer songwriter’s moving tribute to the returning soldiers from Afghanistan was inspired by a trip to entertain the troops in the field of battle Lennie Gallant singing “Wounded” at Harmony House, Hunter River PEI Lennie Gallant was moved by the courage and the danger our troops faced when visited Afghanistan on a troop entertainment tour. He also came face to face with the men and women who return from Afghanistan with visual and hidden wounds from war. That experience affected Lennie deeply as he came to realize it a small way the men and women suffer when then come home to Canada. In honor of these veterans with disabilities, Gallant along with J.T. Harding wrote Wounded. Some of their wounds are obvious but some are deeper inside. Gallant captures the real lives of our veterans... Read more

Preview: Matthew Bourne’s Edward Scissorhands

I don’t know about you, but Danny Elfman’s score from Tim Burton’s dark 90s fairytale Edward Scissorhandssends goosebumps down my spine. So when we heard about Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures turning the story into a ballet, we couldn’t wait for it to tour to the North West – and here it is! The Guardian have already called the show “enchanting and raptly emotional” so we were first in line when it came to bagging a pair of tickets for the opening night. Edward Scissorhands tells the bittersweet tale of a boy created by a lonely inventor who dies leaving Edward alone and unfinished. Left with only scissors for hands, he must find his place in a strange suburban world where the well-meaning and stifling community struggle to see past his appearance to the innocence and gentleness within...

Mazda3 GT: attainable status symbol?

The 2015 Mazda3 GT reviewed in the deep of winter. Is the Mazda3 GT as good as it gets when it comes to affordable, sporty compact cars? It could very well be. Two weeks in the 2015 Mazda3 GT revealed the taught, shapely sedan to be a comfortable, refined performer, and a surprisingly good vehicle for tackling the worst of Canadian winters. It's not hard on the eyes, either. When the third-generation Mazda3 debuted for the 2014 model year, the cartoonish 'smile' that adorned the front end of the previous generation had been wiped away, replaced with a mature and subtly elegant look. Mazda likens its company-wide KODO design language to a cheetah pouncing on prey, which isn't a bad metaphor. Viewed from any angle, the Mazda3's long hood, short deck and curvaceous flanks hint at the proportions of a classic Jaguar E-Type of the... Read more

6 Authors Who Are Part of Yemen’s Literary History and Literary Resurgence

The optimism of the Yemen Times’ “Political Crisis and Yemen’s Literary Resurgence,” which ran earlier this week, now seems unfortunately out of place: Recent book covers. From the Yemen Times. The article opens with a statement from the owner of the Abu Thaar Bookstore in Sana’a, Yemen’s capital. “I have sold hundreds of novels since last June,” Abduljabar al-Attoani told the Yemen Times. “Not world literature masterpieces, but ones written by Yemeni authors. Do you believe that?!” In another Arab country, such a statement wouldn’t merit a final ?!, but as author Fareed al-Homaid notes: Twenty novels were published by Yemeni authors last year, and while that figure may seem insignificant in a regional or global context, it is considerably more than the eight books produced the previous year. Indeed, it is about ten percent of... Read more

Xenia File Sharpening Company Denied Applicant a Job Because It Regarded Him as Disabled EEOC – INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Save Edge, Inc., a Xenia, Ohio-based industrial file sharpening company, will pay $30,000 to a rejected job applicant and furnish other relief to settle a disability discrimination lawsuit filed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). According to the EEOC’s lawsuit, Save Edge offered applicant Anthony Hoover an operator position but rescinded it once it learned that he took a prescription drug for a seizure disorder. The EEOC said Save Edge withdrew the job offer because it regarded Hoover as a disabled individual incapable of doing the job. Discrimination against a person because he or she is disabled or regarded as disabled violates the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The EEOC filed suit... Read more

What Happened to Saving Money?

What Happened to Saving Money?

There is one aspect of the economy that receives relatively little coverage by the mainstream media.  Perhaps because it's not as "sexy" as its employment, GDP and housing data peers, personal savings data seems to make the financial pages only when it is part of a discussion about retirement.  In this posting, I'd like to take a look at what has happened to savings by American households over the long-term and since the end of the Great Recession.   Let's start by looking at the personal savings rate, the rate of savings as a percentage of disposable income, since 1959:   Other than the spike to 17 percent in 1975 and the trough to 3.8 percent in 1987, the personal savings rate spent most of the decades between 1960 and 1990 in a range between...

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

Driverless Cars Poised To Transform Automotive Industry

Science, Friday, March 27th 2015

The newest Mercedes autonomous car looks like a car on the outside but like a lounge on the inside, with four swivel seats facing each other in a multimedia bubble of padded leather and walnut veneer. The F 015 'Luxury in Motion' concept car unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year is completely self-driving but still has a steering wheel and brake if you want to swivel around and drive it manually. Daimler, the maker of Mercedes and inventor of the original automobile, wants to be among the first to re-invent the car, CEO Dieter Zetsche said at the CES, which he says will become more than just a means of transport and will turn into a mobile living space. German rival Audi, Tesla, Google and a number... Read more

Review: Korg SDD-3000 Digital Delay Pedal

The Korg SDD-3000 faithfully recreates Edge’s rack unit with 7 other delays, programibility, dual amping and awesome sounds By Stephen Pate – The Korg SSD-3000 digital delay rack unit has long been the holy grail of digital delays. Favored by U2 lead guitarist Edge, the SSD-3000 has achieved almost mythic status among guitar players and vocalists both in performance and in the studio. Edge is so worried about losing the effect that he collects old and long-discontinued SDD-3000 rack units. He also has a guitar tech to keep them running in top condition. Now you and I can own the same sound with modern features like saving presets and different delay sounds. Korg has obliged fans by recreating the Korg SDD-3000 Programmable Digital Delay Pedal in a large foot pedal that faithfully re-creates the... Read more

Spin 4 Kids Spin groove and move!

With 2015 already here, there are many people in the world that might have made a new year’s resolution this year. The most common one always happens to be to become healthy and physically fit. It’s even been proven that the best way to achieve this goal is by getting a membership to a local gym. I embarked on my road to becoming healthier and physically fit when I first joined Goodlife Fitness back in September of 2013. Since then, I can completely and honestly say that I have not fully taken advantage of my membership. It’s time that I become more involved in my gym community through workout sessions as well as participate in events held by Goodlife.   One major event that occurs every year from Goodlife that’s presented by...

Finding Fanny's Goan village finds a ban on kissing

Masala, Sunday, March 29th 2015

Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia, Pankaj Kapur and Naseeruddin Shah would be in a quandary, if they found out that one can no longer kiss in the village, which filmmaker Homi Adajania based his progressive film Finding Fanny on, last year. In a regressive rule of sorts, the Goan village panchayat of Salvador do Mundo, has banned kissing in public, saying it causes irritation to residents. The picturesque village in Goa is situated near Panaji, where Adajania spent time writing his film. He created a fictitious village for his film, based on the quaint life of Salvador do Mundo. {ads1}Earlier, the social media was abuzz with discussions about a few ministers of the BJP-led coalition government in Goa, seeking a ban on revealing clothing, especially bikinis on beaches. But Bollywood's public... Read more

JENNIFER LOPEZ AVOIDS THE CURSE OF THE SWEATPANTS

JENNIFER LOPEZ AVOIDS THE CURSE OF THE SWEATPANTS

{ads1}We got a chuckle out of Eva Mendes’ comment about sweatpants being the #1 cause of divorce in America. Of course what she meant was taking your partner for granted and no longer making an effort to be attractive or keep them happy is destructive to romance. And the “sweatpants” can be on either the man or woman. One person who doesn’t have to worry about sweatpants is Jennifer Lopez – her fashion collection includes lots of sweats and she happened to look very cute in her yellow sweats when she went out to Cecconi’s with her friend Leah Remini.

Movie Review Barkhaa

Reviews, Friday, March 27th 2015

Not surprisingly, with the World Cup fever at its peak, Bollywood seems to be the one facing the repercussions. Unless and until, it has a strong script, the chances of a film's survival at the box-office are quite negligible. But this week's release BARKHAA stars a bunch of 'semi' newcomers and is helmed by a debutant director. Will BARKHAA be able to stand the test of time (read 'World Cup') and create a niche for itself at the Box-Office? Let's analyze. {ads1}The film's story starts off with Jatin (Taaha Shah) and his parents taking care of his elder brother Akash (Priyanshu Chatterjee) who is battling for life in the ICU. A tensed up Jatin gets a reminder call about his appointment of being the chief guest at a book launch of... Read more

Bob Dylan Facts When Someone Attacks Your Imagination

Bob Dylan in the cross-hairs – Sean Wilentz and Christopher Ricks take sides By Stephen Pate – 5th in the series. Dylan historian Sean Wilentz and Dylan poetry critic Christopher Ricks square off, the historian versus the poetry scholar. The earlier and 4th article in the series is  Bob Dylan Plagiarism Controversy Is Silly. Part 5 – Bob Dylan – Fact Or Fiction Sean Wilentz – Some historians are artists, actually. I don’t know that he’s (Dylan’s) not a historian. He’s an artist, to be sure. There are artists who are historians, and there are artists who are not. There are historians who are not artists, and there are historians who are. I think he’s one of those people who’s both. He is a very numerous character. I’m not going to say if he’s not a historian.

Music Review Detective Byomkesh Bakshy

Music :: Filmi, Tuesday, March 24th 2015

Expectations: After Dum Laga Ke Haisha, expectations are sky-high from Yash Raj Films. The fact that the film is based in the 1943 Bengal, we expect a score that also does well. Music: But all hopes crash when we get into the score. In sheer energy quotient and the retro Western rhythm, the song 'Calcutta Kiss' (Imaad Shah-Saba Azad) just passes muster, though we cannot exactly say that it recreates the atmosphere of that time or lingers in our mind after it is over: The song is actually eminently forgettable and after the track ends, we do not recollect even its hook. The music and...er, lyrics are by Madboy, Mink (that's how the billing goes). 'Bachke Bakshy' (Gowri Jayakumar, Thomson Andrews), complete with modern gimmicks and rap-like sections, is the kind of... Read more

The Experimental Consumer Price Index

Guitar Savings With B-Stock and eBay

You can save money on guitars buying B-stock, used and on eBay. By Stephen Pate – You can save money buying B-stock guitars – guitars that have a minor finish problem or blemish. Generally B-stock means cosmetic not structural damage to the guitar. The guitar does not need a neck reset but has some smaller cosmetic issue. A guitar with structural damage would or should be repaired by the dealer before it is sold. Musicians Friend regularly lists off grade guitars along with the... Read more
