Certainly, on the second of those deadly dangers, climate change, hes already taken action based on another of his fantasies: that making America great again means taking it back to the fossil-fueled 1950s. His ignorance about, and actions to increase the effects of, climate change have already taken the U.S., the second largest emitter of greenhouse gases on the planet, out of the climate change sweepstakes and into uncharted territory. These acts and the desire to promote fossil fuels in every way imaginable will someday undoubtedly be seen as crimes against humanity. But by then they will already have done their dirty deed. If luck doesnt hold, Donald Trump may end up making Caligula and Nero look like statesmen. If luck doesnt hold he may be the Littlest Big Man of all. Tom Engelhardt is a co-founder of the American Empire Project and the author of The United States of Fear as well as a history of the Cold War, The End of Victory Culture .

Author’s note: I had actually started to write a Memorial Day column when I looked up this piece from 2012, which says almost precisely what I intended to say. When you’ve been writing a column covering foreign affairs for over twenty years, as I have, repetition is inevitable, but what follows captures my view of ... Continue reading "Abolish Memorial Day"

Fathers—and their brain responses—differ with girls than with boys, including how attentive they are, the types of language they use, and the play they engage in. A new study is the first to combine brain scans of fathers with behavioral data collected as fathers interacted with their children in a real-world setting. When a child cried out or asked for dad, fathers of daughters responded to that more than did fathers of sons, says Jennifer Mascaro, who led the research as a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Emory University anthropologist James Rilling, senior author of the study. We should be aware of how unconscious notions of gender can play into the way we treat even very young children. In addition to being more attentive, fathers of daughters sang more often and were more likely to use words associated with sad emotions, such as cry, tears, and lonely.

Since 1971, when the U.S. Congress declared Memorial Day a national federal holiday, Americans have spent the final Monday in May honoring all who died during military service throughout U.S. history. But it all began in 1865, just after the end of the Civil War, when a group of freed American slaves held what came to be seen as the first commemoration of the nation's war dead. According to historical accounts, in an expression of gratitude to those who died fighting against slavery, the freed slaves exhumed the bodies of more than 250 Union soldiers from a mass grave at a Confederate prison camp in Charleston, South Carolina, and gave them a proper burial. A few weeks later, about 10,000 people marched on May 1 to commemorate the war dead. Historian and author David Blight, writing in The New York Times about the events in Charleston in 1865, cited a newspaper account the New York Tribune that described “a procession of friends and mourners as South Carolina and the United States never saw before.

When will Mosul be liberated? – Inside Story Iraqi government forces say they're closing in on the last remaining parts of western Mosul still held by ISIL. The western part of Iraq's second city is ISIL's last remaining Iraqi stronghold. The latest part of the battle for Mosul launched last October was announced on Saturday. Fighting's focussed on three western neighborhoods. Re-capturing them will pave the way for Iraqi forces, backed by US led coalition airstrikes, to begin a final push for the old city. The fall of Mosul would end ISIL's so-called caliphate in Iraq. How big a challenge is that? And what would the fall of Mosul mean for ISIL's future?

Another suggestion is that teens growing up in more dangerous areas could develop responses to their surroundings such as hypervigilancebecoming excessively aware of potential threats – and becoming more paranoid about those around them. Commenting on the significance of the results, senior author Dr Helen Fisher, said, 'These findings highlight the importance of early, preventative strategies for reducing psychosis risk and suggest that adolescents living in threatening neighbourhoods within cities should be made a priority. If we intervene early enough, for example by offering psychological therapies and support to help them cope better with stressful experiences, we could reduce young people's risk for developing psychosis and other mental health problems further down the line.' The findings can be found published in Schizophrenia Bulletin. — AFP Relaxnews

China's planned modern version of its ancient "silk road" may bring more than one trillion dollars of infrastructure investment along trading routes that wind through emerging markets in dozens of countries throughout Asia, Africa and Europe. "One Belt, One Road" (OBOR) trade routes, which stretch from China to London and to Africa, are intended to boost the economies of China and the many nations along the routes by making trading easier and cheaper. But so far, these road, rail, pipeline, port, power grid, telecom, and other projects offer major opportunities for Chinese companies and not so many for outside firms. The Chinese will take “most of the highest-profile projects," said Researcher Derek Scissors of the American Enterprise Institute. The author of China's Asian Dream: Empire Building Along The New Silk Road, Tom Miller, said Chinese banks are financing much of the work with the goal of exporting Chinese technology and creating new demand for Chinese products.
