But Schickelwho was born in Milwaukee and grew up in suburban Wauwatosa, Wisconsinunderstood that Disney was, among other things, both a product and the embodiment of the American Midwest.

Great news, everyone—the Idaho Potato Commission has named February as its official Potato Lovers' Month! In the commission's own words, this is a time to "explore Idaho® Potato versatility from a different and exciting angle." Some of us in the other forty-nine states sadly don't get to take all of Potato Lovers' Month off work, like they probably do in Idaho, but we can celebrate in other ways. For example, we've asked Jeopardy! 's Ken Jennings , who lives in an Idaho-adjacent state, to correct any morsels of our potato knowledge that might be a little half-baked. The Debunker: Is Vodka Made from Potatoes? Wine comes from grapes, beer is brewed from barley. And vodka comes from potatoes, right? This was, at least, the received wisdom I grew up with. Perhaps in the Cold War era, it was encouraging to imagine that, while we in the West were sipping on our fancy cognacs and whatnot, the denizens of the Evil Empire had no choice but to distill their grim, brain-fogging tipple from the lowly potato.

I also like Chris Hedgesbook, Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle . How do you explain the Trump administration prohibition of the entry of citizens from 7 Muslim countries (Syria, Libya, Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, and Yemen), while the real generator of Wahhabi terrorism is Saudi Arabia that Mr. Trump spared? In my interview with Dr. Bruce Riedel , himself a former CIA officer, Obama’s advisor on Pakistan and Afghanistan issues, he told me that relations between the US and Saudi Arabia would never be affected. How do you explain the unfailing links between the United States with Saudi Arabia and Israel? This is a really excellent and important question with a two-part answer. First, this prohibition was created by Trump loyalists with limited knowledge and no experience in this domain, and it was not properly staffed through the bureaucracy.

At that particular time, what did we do? We won the war with our allies, but we lost the peace. And we also had the terrible situation of having to live with losing an empire at the same time. People forget that the common market that by 1960 and 1970 was in a dreadful mess economic latecomer race days were over, those who think that somehow or other it has been sweet running all the way through should look back on the history of that period. We reckon we were a bunch of losers who we would be much better with Europe, and it is only of recent late, fax three parliaments ago when in practice the Queen's speech said we must we engage with the world because we had been not doing so.

EYEING INDIA “Only those who have long term vision will take a punt. Indorama has very large fertiliser operations in Nigeria and own significant potash reserves. They are looking to make big bets in India. Indo Gulf would offer them an opportunity to forward integrate,” said another official in the know. One of the official quoted above even said, Lohias may also buy out the residual fertiliser operations of Tata Chemicals but these could not be independently verified. Last year, Indorama Ventures and Dhunseri Petrochem formed a 50:50 joint venture to manufacture polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resins for domestic as well as international markets. With roots in modest yarns business called Indorama Synthetics, the Lohias now helm a multinational petrochemicals empire. Indorama draws its name from its base in Indonesia and the Hindu deity Lord Rama, its operations, together with Thailand-listed flagship Indorama Ventures, today spans the globe with over 57 factories in 21 countries.

But again in his case he was closely associated with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of America. During this time he was awarded the Order of the British empire (OBE) medal as well as the Commander of the British Empire (CBE) medal, however he turned down a Knighthood from the Queen. Simon’s Grandfather was also a prominent Freemason and was Britain’s appointed diplomat to the United Nations in the late 1950’s and early 1960s. Simon went public with his story in 2010, and since then has toured the UK speaking at conferences, initially attacked by the establishment media in a concerted effort to discredit him. However an event in 2013 was to be a game changer, when Simon was invited by the British Ministry of Defence (MOD) to join a small party being given a tour of a secret space radar base in the UK. This totally confounded the established media and has led to a far more serious appraisal of Simon’s story by them.
