New England has its breathtaking autumn landscapes of reds and golds, while Provence boasts fields of lavender as far as the eye can see, but when it comes to seasonal celebrations of the natural world, few can match cherry blossom or sakura season in Kyoto. Japans former imperial capital has more than enough to see in its own right, with no fewer than 17 Unesco World Heritage sites and more than 2,000 temples. But residents of Japan and international visitors alike flock to Kyoto for...

other bomb moments, you could genuinely think that post-imperial Britain had found a new home for itself here in Brussels, but we were never quite in sync. We were never really all that comfortable. It took a decade for Labour to reluctantly reconcile itself to membership of the Common Market.

Chocolate bark is simple enough to make. Melt some chocolate, spread it out, let it set up, break it apart. I like my chocolate bark to be a little more special. To have a certain je ne sais quoi . (I believe thats French for somethin somethin.) *this post is sponsored by Imperial Sugar A. This chocolate bark is so, so pretty with its marbled top. It could be easily customized with any colors for any occasion. Right now, Im elbow-deep in helping to plan a Great Gatsby-themed prom, so Im picturing this marbled with gold. Anyhoo...change up the colors for Christmas, Halloween, you name it. More sugar this way! CLICK TO READ MORE...

We formed a range of unique technologies in various fields, which were tested in the most severe conditions of the far north. Without exaggerating, we can say that our country both in Imperial, and in Soviet times was the world leader in this field. Today we have major projects in the transport sector, information technologies, communications, navigation, industry, medicine, and housing. The global purpose of this work is to enable relationships with the region. Peoplesdesire to go to the Arctic, and their desire to form ties with it will be the best indicator of the effectiveness of our joint activities. This is much more important than any financial or economic indicators. Through consolidation of efforts, a constant exchange of experience, knowledge and technology, the Arctic will turn into an attractive territory to live and work in."

In a rarely seen speech, Putin states that there is a moral crisis occurring in the west and it is one that is purposely created by governments. In short, the moral foundations of objective right and wrong often linked to Christendom have eroded. In their place the imperial oligarchs have erected a system that reverses what is good and replaces it with propaganda that leads to cultural decay and erasure of identity, according to Putin. He suggests that traditional faith in God has been replaced by Satanism. It sounds crazy enough, but then again, there does seem to be at least some degree of affinity for occult religious practices among certain politically connected individuals. Whether it is “Satanism” or something altogether different, is a question we will leave others to decide. He says parties which “promote the propaganda of pedophilia” have been seriously considered as legitimate due to the excesses of political correctness.

Carving master Zou Wantong spent a decade creating a feast of 50 Chinese dishes only out of emerald, estimated to cost up to one billion yuan ($146 million). Zou's works are so lifelike that the color and texture of the dishes are near replicas of their real counterparts on the dinner table.

It costs about $6 to enter, and is well worth the price. It's been around since the early Edo period (1603-1867) and was garden of various lords and the Imperial Family. Emperor Meiji (1852-1912) liked the garden so much he wrote a poem about it: Deep in the woodland of Yoyogi, the quietude creates the illusion of seclusion from the city. I couldn't have said it better myself. There's also a pond, a teahouse (closed), and a well that was made by Katō Kiyomasa (15611611), a famous samurai and a playable character in Pokémon Conquest . After that, we walked to Harajuku and strolled through the narrow winding streets. I'll write about that tomorrow!

And now he has similar in Luis Suarez and Neymar. The argument that Argentina also have world-class players for him to play with does not hold water. Yes, on Friday alongside were Angel Di Maria, Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain, all with lofty pedigrees albeit a notch or two below his club mates. But two are out-and-out strikers and the kind of intuitive slide-rule passing to which he is accustomed is never going to materialise with players he trains with occasionally and only for a few days. Even if Messi presides over victory in Bolivia to set Argentina on course for Moscow, you feel that a World Cup triumph will still be beyond his reach. Whereas at Barcelona he is The Man and is relaxed in his imperial clothes, outside of that comfort zone he visibly shrinks. He lacks the audacity to overcome the difficulties over which Maradona rode roughshod – and the lack of teammates on the same high-frequency wavelength.

WASHINGTON: Donald Trump sat in the Oval Office on Friday evening in an unfamiliar position – having to own failure. His health care reform, his very first significant legislative proposal, had fallen at the first hurdle in a friendly Congress. For sure, the 70-year-old businessman had faltered before – from bankrupt casinos to shuttered hotels. But until now bravado was enough to keep his brand intact, and carry him all the way to the White House. Now – in the fiercest spotlight in the world, as president of the United States – there was nowhere to hide. Fittingly perhaps, Trump addressed his failure from behind a desk in the Oval Office. It was in that same spot that Harry Truman kept a sign that encapsulated all the pressures and accountability of an imperial presidency: "The buck stops here." Trump was not ready to take quite that much ownership, although he did profess to be "a little surprised" by the plan's failure.

Not a peep about this from Congress or Trump. I'm sorry that Trump did not level with Americans over financing our endless wars. Today, their costs are hidden into the ever expanding national debt, now approaching US$20 trillion. Americans should be taxed to pay for their wars. An honest war tax would show Americans the real cost of their imperial adventures and spare their children from having to pay for such dumb wars as Afghanistan and the Middle East. Eric S.

I've been writing about the divided Deep State for a number of years, most recently in The Conflict within the Deep State Just Broke into Open Warfare . The topic appears to be one of widespread interest, as this essay drew over 300,000 views. It's impossible to understand the divided Deep State unless we situate it in the larger context of profound political disunity , a concept I learned from historian Michael Grant, whose slim but insightful volume The Fall of the Roman Empire I have been recommending since 2009. As I noted in my 2009 book Survival+ , this was a key feature of the Roman Empire in its final slide to collapse. The shared values and consensus which had held the Empire's core together dissolved, leaving petty fiefdoms to war among themselves for what power and swag remained. A funny thing happens when a nation allows itself to be ruled by Imperial kleptocrats: such rule is intrinsically destabilizing, as there is no longer any moral or political center to bind the nation together.
