Back in 1864, a French historian named Fustel de Coulanges published a book called The Ancient City , in which he argued that urban life began with graveyards. Nomadic peoples found themselves needing ways to care for and memorialize their dead. The social unity of the tribe, the sense of their families, and the force of their religious cults depended at least in part on an enduring feeling for heroic figures from the past and an objective symbol of a people who extend through time. Graveyards gradually grew into temples, and temples gradually flowered into cities. In other words, for Coulanges, someone like Hobbes was right to insist that death drove the creation of cities. He was wrong, however, to believe that fear of death was the cause. Grief seemed the truer origin of city dwelling. Hobbes thought humanity turned away from nomadic life primarily for military protection, and the archetypal piece of urban architecture would be a defensive wall.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) coordinated with the University of Massachusetts Amherst to respond to a student who had pleaded for the senator's help after having her request to carry the Tibetan flag to a commencement ceremony rejected by the school, according to emails obtained by the Washington Free Beacon . Tibetan-American student Kalsang Nangpa was barred by UMass from carrying Tibet's flag during the university's annual "Parade of Nations." The administration told Nangpa that because the U.S. State Department does not recognize Tibet as a sovereign nation, her request to carry its flag would be denied. "This response I got from the school—their decision to not allow me to carry my own flag—is unacceptable and it's a form of discrimination, I feel like," Nangpa, who was born in Tibet, told New England Public Radio. "I feel like the same thing that's happening in Tibet is happening in my own school.

Trump arrived Saturday for the second day of the G-7 summit in Sicily, bringing to an end a nine-day trip that started in Saudi Arabia and Israel before moving on to three European stops.

If he stays in a hotel for the night, he would only start travelling to the venue when he gets up in the morning. During his trips to Belgium, US and Saudi Arabia between March 30 and April 2 last year, Modi spent three nights on Air India One — while in transit from Delhi to Brussels, from Brussels to Washington DC and from there to Riyadh. He just spent two nights at hotels, one in Washington and one in Riyadh. "It is unprecedented to complete a PM's multination trip involving US in just 97 hours. If the PM had not chosen to sleep on the plane, we would not have been back for at least six days," a senior government official had told ET. How Modi escapes the jet lag Won't travelling so much in different directions give very bad jet lags to Modi? What would a jet-lagged PM achieve from an important meeting with another country head? An official once remarked: "Before jet lag hits, reverse jet lag comes into force.

Iran’s foreign minister says the massive arms deal between the US and Saudi Arabia is unable to bring peace to the Middle East. Mohammad Javad Zarif made the remark in an article published in The New York Times. Zarif alo said says responsible leaders in the world should step up their efforts and tackle the momentous challenges at hand to avoid the spread of terrorism and militant extremism. He added that the 110 billion dollar deal between Riyadh and Washington will not reduce the burden on the American military or as the state department argues, will not support the long-term security of Saudi Arabia. Zarif noted that the US president is either milking the Saudis for money or trying to turn the US into Saudi Arabia’s mercenary in the Middle East. The Iranian foreign minister underlined that the last time Riyadh spent such a large sum was in the 1980’s when it gave Iraq’s former dictator Saddam Hussein billions of dollars to arm itself against Iran.

WASHINGTON: A bill has been re-introduced in the House of Representatives that seeks exemption for foreign- born persons with an American Ph.D. in science, technology, engineering or mathematics from the limits on the number of employment-based green cards and H-1B visas awarded annually. Introduced by Congressmen Erik Paulsen and Mike Quigley, the Stopping Trained in America Ph.Ds from Leaving the Economy (STAPLE) Act, is likely to benefit Indians given that they constitute the largest number of students doing PhD in the US. "It is no surprise that the brightest minds from around the world come to the United States to pursue their advanced degrees, and we should be doing all we can to ensure students we educate and train here use what they've learned to contribute to the American economy," said Congressman Erik Paulsen. "With thousands of high-skilled jobs going unfilled, the STAPLE Act makes sure American companies are getting the talent they need.

In an interview with the Spanish newspaper ABC, al-Jaafari stressed that Iraq will not enter any country’s policies against the other.
