Mike Signer is not the only coward among us. Our entire foreign policy and public budget are shaped by irrational fear. More likely than ISIS killing you are each of the following: a U.S. police officer killing you, the stairs in your house killing you, pollutants in your environment killing you, a toddler who finds a gun killing you, or Donald Trump retweeting you. I make no comment on which of those fates would be the worst. As you've heard about Yemen and Syria, let me add a couple of comments about Afghanistan and if there's time Iraq. The current U.S. war in Afghanistan is well into its 16th year, though U.S. violence there began much earlier. The U.S. military now has approximately 8,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan , plus 6,000 other NATO troops, 1,000 mercenaries, and another 26,000 contractors (of whom about 8,000 are from the United States).

his 16th birthday on the 12th of April, the date Ed Sheeran is playing in Dublin. I thought as a surprise, I would try to get tickets. The last time I bought tickets was ten years ago to Rod Stewart and I'm not familiar with the secondary market, or I wasn't until six weeks ago. I researched, I did all the things I think as a consumer, we are advised to.

Chadwick Parker and Joe Huang, the industrial design duo behind Big Idea Design , have done it again: Sixteen successful Kickstarter campaigns and counting! And two of their last four campaigns broke the $200,000 mark, which the current one might as well. Even if it doesn't, it's already a smash hit: The Bit Bar is compact, yet actually useable screwdriver and bit holder that's already over 1,000% funded. Parker and Huang were seeking $10,000, and at press time were up to $136,934 in pledges with 27 days left in the campaign. We're mightily impressed with their consistent ability to figure out what people want or need, design a superior or more desirable alternative to what exists, then get it manufactured. We've written more about what makes these guys so successful here: Turning Kickstarter into Kickcontinuer

This quote later became “五岳归来不看山,黄山归来不看岳”, which roughly means “Having seen the Five Great Mountains, one does not see other mountains; having seen Huangshan, one does not see the Five Great Mountains”. Landscape of Mount Huangshan, China. (Chi King/CC BY 2.0) Huangshan has an important place in Chinese history and culture. For instance, a legend dating to 747 AD, when China was ruled by the Tang Dynasty, states that this was the place where the elixir of immortality was discovered. Apart from hermits seeking immortality, Huangshan also attracted scores of Chinese poets and artists over the centuries, who hoped to be inspired by the mountain’s breath-taking landscape. It was during the Ming Dynasty, more specifically around the 16th century, that the landscape, rocks and trees of Huangshan served as inspirations for an influential Chinese school of landscape painting known as 山水 (pronounced as ‘shan shui’, which meansmountain and water’).

Created in the 1960s, the worsted material was inspired by the label’s Priest Cloth, produced especially for ecclesiastical robes. Wearing a Tasmanian suit, therefore, gives you good reason to feel blessed. At Loro Piana, pride of place is given to a superior and extremely rare material made from the fine-haired, golden under-fleece of the vicuña. Known as the ‘Queen of the Andes’, this slender animal – a relative of the llama, also indigenous to South America – was believed by the Incas to be sacred, with magical powers granted by the gods. In ancient times, the golden fleece of the vicuña was reserved for Inca emperors, but by the 16th century the animal was extensively hunted by the Spanish conquistadors. By the 1960s, aggressive poaching meant that vicuña numbers had dwindled to a dangerous low. Seeking to protect the creature, Loro Piana first engaged with the Peruvian authorities in the ’80s, and in 1994 the company was given exclusive permission to reintroduce vicuña products.
