Is It All About Networking?

featuring Niall Fergusonvia LawFare
Thursday, February 15, 2018

These days, everyone seems to meet online. People looking for dating partners now rely on specialized websites, along with people looking for explanations of arcane questions, people looking for angry confirmation of their own darkest suspicions—and people seeking advice about how to make a bomb and why they should set it off. Doesn’t our world now turn on cyber connections of one sort or another?

Make College Degrees Valuable Again

quoting Caroline M. Hoxbyvia Washington Examiner
Thursday, February 15, 2018

Winter brings closure to millions of high school students filling out college applications. To the best of their ability, they have cemented their steps toward a brighter future. Meanwhile, newspapers will fill those students with the anxiety that college is becoming a Fort Knox, locking the non-worthy out of a sanctuary.

Inflation And Stocks Are Both Up, And That’s Stirring Some Worries

quoting Martin Feldsteinvia The New York Times
Thursday, February 15, 2018

Two weeks ago, fears of higher-than-expected inflation and interest rates sent stocks into a historic and nerve-rattling plunge. This week, those fears were borne out: Consumer prices rose more than expected in January, and interest rates jumped.

Diversity Does Not End At Race

quoting Thomas Sowellvia Northwest Missourian
Thursday, February 15, 2018

“Diversity is our strength,” is a mantra heard time and time again from the mouths of lawmakers, academics, pundits and the like. It has become so cliché that it has almost lost its meaning in the minds of most people. What exactly is it that is meant by “diversity?”

Real Target Of Erdogan's Olive Branch Could Be US Clout

quoting Fabrice Balanche via Al-Monitor
Thursday, February 15, 2018

As Turkey’s offensive against Syrian Kurdish forces in Afrin grinds on for a third week, the prevailing wisdom is that NATO’s second-largest army is getting bogged down. Critics point to the number of Turks killed in combat — at least 31 in 26 days — the swelling pile of disabled helicopters and tanks and the slow pace of Turkish advances into the hilly enclave. A veteran Kurdish politician went so far as to suggest that Afrin would become Turkey’s “Vietnam.”

Caligula's Wish

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Tuesday, February 13, 2018

It was the spring of 1960, and a group of military officers had just seized control of the government and the national media, imposing an information blackout to suppress the coordination of any threats to their coup. But inconveniently for the conspirators, a highly anticipated soccer game between Turkey and Scotland was scheduled to take place in the capital two weeks after their takeover. Matches like this were broadcast live on national radio, with an announcer calling the game, play by play. People all across Turkey would huddle around their sets, cheering on the national team.

mentioning Thomas Sowellvia The Meridian Star
Tuesday, February 13, 2018

Carter G. Woodson, noted scholar, historian and educator, created "Negro History Week" in 1926, which became Black History Month in 1976. Woodson chose February because it coincided with the birthdays of black abolitionist Frederick Douglass and President Abraham Lincoln. Americans should be proud of the tremendous gains made since emancipation. Black Americans, as a group, have made the greatest gains, over some of the highest hurdles, in a shorter span of time than any other racial group in mankind's history.
