Sunday Train: What Future for America's Deadly Cul-de-Sacs? —by BruceMcF: "The Great Recession of 2007-2009 triggered the Depression that we appear to be exiting this summer. And it was triggered by the collapse of the Great Turn of the Century Suburban Housing Bubble. In coming out of the recent Depression, one driver of residential property values, the Cul de Sac, seems to be in conflict with a new driver: walkability. In October 2013, the Realtor(R) ...

Attack of the Chicago climate change maggots 23.7.2014 Washington Post

CHICAGO — Sewage gushed up Lori Burns’s toilet. It swept the floor. It wrecked the water heater, the deep freezer, her mother’s wedding veil.

This basement invasion was the third in five years. Burns, 40, could no longer afford to pay a cleanup crew. So she slipped on polka dotted rain boots, waded into the muck, wrenched out the stand-pipe and watched the brown water drain.

The Late Historian Who Predicted The Years of War After September 11 23.7.2014 Mother Jones
This story first appeared on the TomDispatch website. In December 2002, finishing the introduction to his as-yet-unpublished book The Unconquerable World: Power, Nonviolence, and the Will of the People, Jonathan Schell wrote that the twentieth century was the era in which violence outgrew the war system that had once housed it and became "dysfunctional as a political instrument. Increasingly, it destroys the ends for which it is employed, killing the user as well as his victim. It has become the path to hell on earth and the end of the earth. This is the lesson of the Somme and Verdun, of Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen, of Vorkuta and Kolyma; and it is the lesson, beyond a shadow of a doubt, of Hiroshima and Nagasaki." More than a decade later, that remains a crucial, if barely noticed, lesson of our moment. Jonathan Schell died this March, but he left behind a legacy of reporting and thinking—from The Real War and The Fate of the Earth to The Unconquerable World—about just how, as the power to destroy ...

Election Diary Rescue: Week 28 22.7.2014 Daily Kos
The following diaries are examples of this week's Election Diary Rescue. This post features a collection of 47 diaries. (NH-Sen) SHHHH Scott Brown, the trick is NOT to remind them you're a carpet bagger by Clytemnestra - After being spurned by Massachusetts voters, Scott Brown packed up and moved to his summer house in New Hampshire and decided to challenge Jeanne Shaheen (D) so he can go back to the Senate.

Labour party leader and US president discuss crises in Ukraine and Middle East during brief conversation in Washington

Ed Miliband used a meeting with the US president, Barack Obama, on Monday to discuss the foreign crises engulfing the world and portray himself to the British electorate as much as his hosts as a prime minister in waiting.

Speaking to British foreign correspondents before his arrival at the White House, the Labour leader was candid about the purpose of his visit. "I am going because I want to be prime minister of Britain in less than ten months and because it is incredibly important and it is what I think the British people would want to have a prime minister who works closely with the United States," he said.
