Westminster paedophile inquiry head faces fresh calls to quit from abuse victims

Westminster paedophile inquiry head Fiona Woolf faces fresh and unanimous calls from the alleged abuse victims on Friday to quit leading the investigation over her links with Lord Brittan. Mrs Woolf - a City lawyer and lord mayor of London, has been criticised for her social links with Leon Brittan, who denied failing to act on a dossier of abuse allegations in the 1980s when he was home secretary in 1984. The representative group of abuse victims is expected to have a preliminary meeting with the sex abuse inquiry panel's secretariat to demand Ms Woolf’s removal following her links with the ex-home secretary, whose role is expected to come under scrutiny during the probe for failure to act timely on the evidence. {ads1}Mrs Woolf is not likely to attend today's meeting at which...

Will Ukraine Commit Economic Suicide?

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...

Lessons of North Korea for Iran Nuclear Talks

Middle East, Monday, October 27th 2014

Lessons of North Korea for Iran Nuclear Talks

Among the arguments marshaled by those  wary of a nuclear agreement with Iran is that past efforts to negotiate away North Korea’s nuclear weapons program failed. Iran’s regime, they argue, is just as untrustworthy as North Korea’s and what’s more, Wendy Sherman, the chief U.S. negotiator with Iran, was also involved in talks with the North Koreans under the Bill Clinton administration and thus is somehow inherently suspect. The critics sidestep massive differences between a small hereditary dictatorship that has already conducted nuclear tests and a large oil-rich country that has repeatedly stated that it will never develop nuclear weapons. Also, Sherman, who became involved with North Korea in Clinton’s second term, had nothing to do with negotiating a landmark nuclear agreement that was signed 20 years ago this week. Still the criticism is worth examining... Read more

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...

Hindus are upset at unnecessary dragging of Hinduism in Marion County School Board (MCSB) elections in Florida. Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, stressed that religion was something very personal and should not be an issue in a school board election and should not affect how a board member determined the policies of the school system. {ads1}Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, pointed out that Hinduism was the oldest and third largest religion of the world with about one billion adherents and a rich philosophical thought and it should not be taken lightly.

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

Kamel Daoud’s ‘Meursault’ Among Prix Goncourt’s Final Four, English Rights to Oneworld

Prix Goncourt organizers have announced the final cut, leaving just four titles in the running for the biggest of the French book prizes.

Rob McEachern, publisher of Red Like Me This week the Bank of Nova Scotia called it quits and discontinued their legal action. The details of the story are interesting but the bigger story is that independent journalists can report the news and stand up to big money interests. It is in the public interest to know when investment dealers have defrauded the public. Knowledge is power for consumers. Hiding stories like this... Read more

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

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.

Dibakar Banerjee ropes in Delhi Band “Joint Family” for Detective Byomkesh Bakshi

The intriguing teaser trailer of Dibakar Banerjee’s Detective Byomkesh Bakshi which got launched last week has garnered a lot of appreciation and gathered great excitement. {ads1}Apart from the teaser being captivating, the music of the song has got a lot of attention. The song is a key element in the teaser of the film. Everyone who heard the song kept thinking that the song belongs to a band from abroad or the style was close to that of Vishal-Shekhar. Dibakar kept the curiosity high by not talking about who the song belonged to. Social media has been abuzz where everyone has been trying to guess who the singer for the song is. The track which has been used in the teaser is called Life's a Bitch... Read more

Union J: Don’t Underestimate The Importance Of Hair

Remember the “hair bands” of the 80’s? This UK boy band seems to have revitalized that tradition. Hair is EVERYTHING. The band is called Union J and the members are from left: George Shelley, (with the craziest hair) JJ Hamblett, Josh Cuthbert, and Jaymi Hensley. ONE of them is openly gay – can you guess which? It’s Jaymi on the far right. (The spelling of his name should have been a clue.) They all brought their great hair to the premier of Interstellar in London. {ads1}Photo Credit: AKM-GSI Click HERE to read more from Janet Charlton Read more

Music Review Happy Ending

Music :: Filmi, Friday, October 31st 2014

Expectations: After the path-breaking Go Goa Gone and the ingenious song 'Shake Your Bootiya' in Finding Fanny, expectations have to be high from the innovative team of producer Dinesh Vijan and Sachin-Jigar. Raj-DK also directed the former film, and Vijan also co-produced Love Aaj Kal, Cocktail and Agent Vinod. Expectations increase to huge. Music: The commercial winner among all the tracks is, doubtlessly, the funky 'Paaji Tussi Such A Pussycat' (Amitabh Bhattacharya-Jigar Saraiya-Divya Kumar) - a crazy caper of a song, with a light layering in the composition, a retro Western treatment and the classic Amitabh Bhatttacharya brand of lyrics. Sample the quintessential Bhattacharya imagery like 'Big budget tere saare sapne / Haath mein lollypop hai / Par haqeeqat ki theatron mein /Teri saari filmein flop hai'. And the three singers...

Why Has GDP Growth Been So Modest?

We all know that there is a close relationship between personal consumption and GDP growth as shown on this graph from FRED:     As the decades have passed, personal consumption has made up an ever-increasing component of GDP, rising from a low of 58.5 percent in 1967 to its current level of 68.5 percent.  That said, if we focus on the tail end of the curve showing the data since the end of the Great Recession in June 2009, this is what...

The End Of An Era: Is The US Petrodollar Under Threat?

Recent trade deals and high-level cooperation between Russia and China have set off alarm bells in the West as policymakers and oil and gas executives watch the balance of power in global energy markets shift to the East. The reasons for the cozier relationship between the two giant powers are, of course, rooted in the Ukraine crisis and subsequent Western sanctions against Russia, combined with China's need to secure long-term energy supplies. However, a consequence of closer economic ties between Russia... Read more
