So looking back several decades, the scientists agreed – if they had to pick a date when it all started, it was 2013. Thirteen is aptly considered unlucky, for it was the year with no summer. Scratch that. It was the first year with no summer. Moods were glum throughout Western Canada that spring. April showers were supposed to bring May flowers. Instead, all the precipitation...
  • Bad care is inevitable in the NHS

    That´s not to say it´s excusable, just that the appalling neglect of 38 patients at the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch is the logical result of the NHS´s untenable management structure. Imagine if everything at Tesco´s was free but rationed, and subject to delivery delays of several months. Then throw in the fact that there are no other free alternatives. You would have a nightmare on your hands--huge queues, attracted by the free goods, then further stretched by the long delays. Imagine how the staff would then behave--harrassed by the limitless demand of customers, but also in a tyrannical position of

    A war with Israel is practically inevitable, Iranian General Mohammad Ali Jafari said Saturday. At a meeting of the top echelon of the Revolutionary Guards, which Jafari commands, the general said that “the shameful and cancerous tumour that is Israel is seeking war against us, but it is not known when that war will happen. They now consider war as the only way to confront us, but they are so stupid that their (US) masters should stop them.” Jafari was quite emphatic that a war was nearly inevitable. "This (war) will eventually happen as the (Islamic) revolution is moving rapidly...

    None of this matters. Not Iowa or New Hampshire. Not South Carolina or even Ohio. Not Mitt Romney’s gaffes, nor Newt Gingrich’s impertinence, nor Rick Santorum’s sanctimonies. Not Sheldon Adelson, not Foster Freiss and not even Rush Limbaugh. The 2012 Republican presidential primary may leave a few lasting memories, and could do some irrevocable damage to the GOP brand. President Barack Obama will undoubtedly end up a bit bruised. But mostly it’s pointless, because the 2012 presidential election is effectively over right now: All of the available data indicate that Romney will be the Republican nominee by end of spring,...

The Republican senator owns a home in Penn Hills, but lives in Leesburg, Va. Penn Hills School District is paying $38,000 this year for five Santorum children to attend Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School based in Midland, Beaver County. The district has paid an additional $62,000 for his children to attend the school since 2001. "It might not be illegal to bill Penn Hills for their education, but it is deceitful, unethical and immoral," said...

    The Newt Surge is official. Over the last week, Gingrich’s Intrade odds of winning the nomination rose from 16% to 39%. Romney has faded a little but still leads with 47% odds. No one else is above 5% odds. The polls are even more stunning. Rasmussen shows Gingrich leading 38%-17% in a national poll. Real Clear Politics lists polls with Gingrich leading Romney by 15-30 points in Florida, South Carolina and Iowa, and trailing Romney by only 10 points in New Hampshire. In the general election match-up, Rasmussen has Gingrich leading Obama by 2% and Romney trailing Obama by 6%....

    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran will target NATO's missile defense installations in Turkey if the U.S. or Israel attacks the Islamic Republic, a senior commander of Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard said Saturday. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the head of the Guards' aerospace division, said the warning is part of a new defense strategy to counter what he described as an increase in threats from the U.S. and Israel.

Citing no data or reasons other than BOR's superior intellect and mysterious 'sense' of universal truth, tonight BOR shocked me...he slathered all over this in his opening: 'Talking Points, wherein he defended Cain's 9-9-9, and said Cain deserves serious consideration.

    Hillary Clinton's most senior advisers are in a state of "panic" about her presidential prospects and are plotting to enlist Democrat leaders in Congress to thwart her rival Barack Obama's ambitions. The Clinton camp is braced for Mr Obama to win a series of primary elections over the next three weeks, which they fear could hand the Illinois senator unstoppable momentum in the race for the White House. Mr Obama has begun calling those "super delegates" - 795 congressmen and senior party officials who could break a dead heat - who are committed to Mrs Clinton, asking them to change...

    <p>Until recently, the biggest thing going for Hillary is that she has appeared "inevitable." This is no accident. Mrs. Clinton may not be as naturally gifted as her husband, but she does have access to his playbook. One of Bill's more brilliant strategies when he ran in 1992 was to campaign as if he were already the nominee. It gave an otherwise little-known governor the legitimacy to sideline his opponents.</p>

    June 11, 2007 (RFE/RL) -- U.S. President George W. Bush, during visits to Albania and Bulgaria, made his most definitive statements yet about the future status of the Serbian province of Kosovo.On a visit to Sofia today, Bush reiterated that "America believes that Kosovo ought to be independent." In Tirana on June 10, Bush said he does not support "endless dialogue" over Kosovo's future status. The U.S. president's comments, which left little room for misinterpretation, are reverberating not only in Belgrade and Pristina, but in other breakaway regions and so-called frozen-conflict zones -- Chechnya, Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Nagorno-Karabakh, and Transdniester....

    Over the last 123 years, the Germans have had enough experience to get many second thoughts. For the better part of the last two decades, the world's third-biggest economy has fought a losing battle against exploding medical costs and red tape.... The impact on the German economy is nothing to sneeze at either. "Free" health care comes with a big bill that, for the average German, eats up around 14.2% of gross pay, about half of it covered by the employer. Sen. Kennedy's proposed Medicare for All Act would make the U.S. more like Germany by imposing a new 1.7%...

    Iranian nuclear weapons 'inevitable' By Anton La Guardia, Diplomatic Editor (Filed: 25/05/2006) It is all but impossible to stop Iran developing nuclear weapons, a leading British think-tank said yesterday, as the world's powers struggled to find a common strategy to face the threat. Senior officials from the US, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China closeted themselves at a secret location in London to negotiate a package of "incentives" for Iran to halt its nuclear programme. But the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) suggested that neither diplomacy nor military action to destroy the nuclear facilities was likely to succeed. "There...

    On Good Friday, after night has fallen on the medieval Umbrian town of Alviano, the crowds flock to a spellbinding re-enactment of the Passion of Christ. From the ancient piazza they watch as the bare-chested actor playing Jesus, head crowned with thorns, is tied to a cross 35ft above the ground, fixed to the ramparts of the 15th-century castle. This year, however, the figure spotlit on the cross will be a woman - a 29-year-old ballerina named Elena Angeli - who was cast by the play's director, Corrado Sorbara, to show the "other, feminine side of Christ". His controversial decision...

    People of Baghdad await the inevitable and fear the worst By Kim Sengupta in Baghdad 27 February 2003 The Iraqi people know that a war is inevitable, that many will die and that those who survive will have their lives changed for good. And, most of all, they are afraid that something calamitous, terrible even by the standards of this violent country, will befall Baghdad. The cautious optimism present even a month ago that the return of the UN inspectors would prevent a conflict has evaporated. The two cities that will bear the brunt of the suffering, it is commonly...

    'Darkness shall be defeated", insisted Saddam Hussein, that well-known force for enlightment, last week. "The forces of evil," he continued, referring to President George W Bush and his plan to invade Iraq, "will carry their coffins on their backs to die in disgraceful failure." Saddam said more or less the same in 1990, when George Bush's father put together the UN-led coalition to oust Saddam from Kuwait. In the event, of course, it was Saddam's troops who died in their thousands: the "mother of all battles" turned into the mother of all routs, with Saddam's army the main victim.Part of...
