Saudi Arabia’s Arab Spring, at Last

I never thought I’d live long enough to write this sentence: The most significant reform process underway anywhere in the Middle East today is in Saudi Arabia. Yes, you read that right. Though I came here at the start of Saudi winter, I found the country going through its own Arab Spring, Saudi style.

Unlike the other Arab Springs — all of which emerged bottom up and failed miserably, except in Tunisia — this one is led from the top down by the country’s 32-year-old crown prince, ...

'I love digging': 89-year-old man digs his own grave

For anyone passing St. Alexis church in Rollo Bay, P.E.I., one afternoon last summer, nothing seemed out of the ordinary about the small group gathered in the nearby cemetery.

The people were standing around, watching as a backhoe scooped up the red earth, and then lowered a pine box into the freshly dug grave.

But what made this scene extraordinary, was that the man operating the backhoe was actually digging his own grave.

Trump hails 'invisible' plane in remarks to coast guard: 'The enemy cannot see it'

Donald Trump returned to a favourite subject on Thursday, telling a US coast guard audience the air force was ordering a new plane that was “almost like an invisible fighter”.

The plane in question, the F-35, is not invisible, though it is unusually small and designed to be less visible to radar than conventional aircraft. Its development, however, has proved all too visibly costly and riddled with problems.

Meet Cranberry the turkey, saved from the Christmas dinner table, who now thinks she's a dog. She loves going for walks, lives in a kennel and even 'barks'.

Mr Watkins, 55, the National Director for Equine Welfare at HorseWorld in Bristol, said: 'We ...

Inside The Peculiar Cholombiano Fashion Subculture

Cholombiano fashion originated back in the early 2000s in the regions of northern Mexico and is the culmination of traditional Mexican symbolism meshed with modern day casual attire popular in urban metropolitan regions such as Los Angeles.

The fashion subgroup can be ...

American Pimps | Shawn Hamilton

Robert “Iceberg Slim” Beck’s 1967 autobiography Pimp: The Story of My Life chronicles Beck’s rise, fall, and redemption. Much of the book reads as a kind of coming-of-age story, with Beck trying to ply his trade, making mistakes, and then using the “wisdom” of mentors to correct his course. The reader learns about the world of the pimp, not through Beck, but through his teachers. And one key dilemma Beck lays out for his readers is what might be called the thoroughbred problem.

The Nationalist's Delusion

Overall, poor and working-class Americans did not support Trump; it was white Americans on all levels of the income spectrum who secured his victory. Clinton was only competitive with Trump among white people making more than $100,000, but the fact that their shares of the vote was nearly identical drives the point home: Economic suffering alone does not explain the rise of Trump. Nor does the Calamity Thesis explain why comparably situated black Americans, who are considerably more vulnerable ...
