    Rzeczpospolita ^ | 10/02/2015 | Piotr Nowak
    Article (in Polish) about the immigration of Muslims into Europe. Polish philosophy professor tells Muslims not to come, because, in the end, the Europeans will kill them all: "If you do not want Muslims in Europe if the horror refer to their presence on the Old Continent, I do so with concern about their fate; not for fear of them, but for them. Indeed history repeats itself, and it is by no means a farce. In short, they're going to die here, will be eliminated, trodden, dents in the European land, because the conditions of possibility of the Holocaust -...

    Peut-on rire de tout avec n'importe qui? Le député les Républicains (LR) des Hauts-de-Seine, Patrick Devedjian, semble croire que oui. Tandis qu'il participait à une conférence de presse à la préfecture de région d'Île-de-France, le parlementaire s'est livré à une boutade pour le moins maladroite. Alors que le préfet Jean-François Carenco évoquait la situation des réfugiés syriens et irakiens en provenance d'Allemagne que la France s'apprête à accueillir, le patron du conseil général a ironisé, selon le compte-rendu fait par l'AFP: «Les Allemands nous ont pris nos juifs, ils nous rendent des arabes». ... Emphasis added.

  • Elections Aren't Democracy

    Washington Post ^ | 01/19/2009 | Barack Obama
    "Elections aren't democracy, as we understand it. They are one facet of a liberal order, as we understand it. And so in a lot of countries, you know, the first question is, if you go back to Roosevelt's four freedoms, the first question is freedom from want and freedom from fear. If people aren't secure, if people are starving, then elections may or may not address those issues, but they are not a perfect overlay.

    Die WElt ^ | 02/15/2008 | Peter Ditmar
    Exihibition in Bonn concerning loot plundered from Gaul by the Alemanni found in the Rhine (more than 1000 objects). This event is dated fairly exactly to the mid-third century by Roman records of a great defeat of Germans trying to get back to Germany after plundering Gaul. Apparently the Roman Army caught them in mid-stream, burdened with plunder. Bet it sucked to be them that day.Story in German.

    Ask the Imam ^ | Mufti Ebrahim Desai
    The common form of democracy prevalent at the moment is representative democracy, in which the citizens do not exercise their right of legislating and issuing political decrees in person, but rather through representatives chosen by them. The constitution of a democratic country will be largely influenced by the needs and wants of its people. Thus, if its people want casinos, bars, gay marriages, prostitution, etc. then with sufficient public pressure, all these vices can be accommodated for. From this, it becomes simple to understand that there can never be scope for a democratic rule from the Islamic point of view....

    The London Review of Books ^ | 6 January 2005 | Michael Byers
    Michael Byers On Thinning Ice The polar bears stare forlornly at Hudson Bay. It’s late November and they should be out on the sea ice hunting ring seals, but the ice hasn’t formed and the bears are starving. Ursus maritimus doesn’t hunt on land and normally fasts for months each summer. Now, however, the summers are growing longer across most of the Arctic, and the waters of Hudson Bay are ice-free for three weeks longer than they were thirty years ago. In a decade or two, polar bears won’t be found this far south; by the end of the century,...

    University of Florida ^ | 10/21/2004 | Carolyn Gramling
    GAINESVILLE, Fla. --- A University of Florida scientist has grown a living “brain” that can fly a simulated plane, giving scientists a novel way to observe how brain cells function as a network. The “brain” -- a collection of 25,000 living neurons, or nerve cells, taken from a rat’s brain and cultured inside a glass dish -- gives scientists a unique real-time window into the brain at the cellular level. By watching the brain cells interact, scientists hope to understand what causes neural disorders such as epilepsy and to determine noninvasive ways to intervene. As living computers, they may...

    Many Iraqis Find They Like Life Without Hussein By JOEL BRINKLEY Published: October 26, 2003 AGHDAD, Iraq, Oct. 25 — At the Hijra elementary school in a prosperous neighborhood of the city on Saturday morning, a class of fifth graders stood at attention when the assistant principal walked in and automatically began to chant, "Long live the president," Saddam Hussein. But their voices trailed off before they reached last word, and several students looked down at the floor. "Things are totally changed now," said Enam Moussa al-Naqid, the assistant principal, openly delighted by the present state of affairs. "All the...
