In neighboring Germany, Europe’s largest fiscally solvent country, political leaders announced that they would raise the executive pay issue in the next parliament, with Chancellor Angela Merkel stating that: “Exhorbitance cannot be allowed in a free and socially minded society.”The Dutch government, meanwhile, announced new legislation is in the works that would cap golden parachutes at a maximum of 75,000 euros ($98,000). In the land of fire and ice, Icelanders overcame a major economic crisis that saw the stock market tank by 90 percent and increased unemployment nine-fold with a “peoples’ bailout” that included debt write-offs and mortgage subsidies. Iceland took IMF money (which they’ve already repaid), but wisely refused structural adjustment. And it prosecuted bankers at the center of the crisis, some of whom are now doing jail time. Perhaps most telling, the country’s leadership engaged the public in a rewriting of the country’s constitution, setting the foundation for a radical grassroots system of direct democracy. French President Francois Hollande has also begun to address his country’s widening wealth gap, Reuters notes, by limiting executive pay at state-controlled companies to 20 times that of the lowest paid worker – putting the hurt on CEOs in a big way. According…

Last month, The Washington Post compared spending on video games and gun-related homicide rates in 10 countries.“The search for meaning is a natural response to any tragedy, and the latest U.S. mass shooting is eliciting questions about, among other things, the potential role of violent video games. After all, with kids and increasingly teenagers spending so much time hammering away at simulated shooters, is it any wonder when they pick up actual guns?” wrote the Washington Post’s Max Fisher. “Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod lamented on Twitter, ‘In NFL post-game: an ad for shoot ‘em up video game. All for curbing weapons of war. But shouldn’t we also quit marketing murder as a game?’” Presumably, then, if violent video games somehow translated into more deadly gun-related behavior you would expect the United States – which has far and away the highest levels of gun-related murders per capita – to be the biggest spender on such games. But this is not the case. In fact, according to the Post’s figures, U.S. spending per capita is ahead of only China. The Netherlands and South Korea spend more than twice as much per capita on video games, yet gun murder rates in these two countries…

Saudi Arabia holds the lion’s share of OPEC spare capacity – in other words, oil left unused but which could be brought online quickly and sustainably if need be. Its exalted place among producers stems in part from its ability to convince the market that it can plug an unforeseen gap in supplies, and thus keep prices stable. But traders have balked for years at Riyadh’s claims that it can quickly ramp up its production as high as it says it can. Analysts are rightfully skeptical: after all, its assertions are based on untested assumptions, and the Kingdom has an incentive to overestimate them. Moreover, the Saudis are loath to give outsiders information about their domestic oil industry, a veil of secrecy that provides fodder for market speculation.Edward Morse, a former U.S. energy official who now leads Citigroup’s commodities research team, argued compellingly earlier this year that recent years’ changes to North American oil infrastructure have rendered the SPR “significantly less usable than advertised.” Many of the pipelines that could deliver the oil to market quickly can no longer move SPR oil. Instead, the oil would need to be exported by sea, a method that may take seven times longer…

Editor’s note: Blake Clayton is a fellow for energy and national security at the Council on Foreign Relations. He recently wrote a major new study on the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve published by the Council, available here.The chaos in Libya, Egypt and elsewhere has the oil market on edge, and with good reason. But there is another scare among oil traders, much closer to home, one that could be catastrophic for gasoline prices if oil imports are disrupted this fall. But analysts are skeptical that the U.S. federal government is as functional as advertised. The Department of Energy has offered only a weak denial of these allegations. For a lesson in how a lack of transparency can end up hurting the very market it aims to calm, Washington need look no further than Saudi Arabia. Speculation among experts is rife that the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) is no longer able to release oil to the market as quickly as the Department of Energy claims it can. If true – and there is good reason to believe it is – it could destroy the White House’s ability to prevent oil prices from skyrocketing if the commotion in the Middle East…

The fact is that the Fukushima Daiichi site represents challenges of unprecedented complexity. Maintaining the cooling of three molten reactor cores and five spent fuel pools in a disaster zone is a job of titanic proportions. That is why two weeks after the crisis first erupted I suggested the creation of an International Task Force Fukushima (ITFF) that would pull together the world’s experts in key areas of concern: nuclear physics and engineering, core cooling, water management, spent fuel and radioactive waste storage, building integrity and radiation protection.Two and a half years on, the need for such a taskforce has only grown. An ITFF would need to be established for at least two years to be effective, and could have two co-chairpersons – one Japanese, one from abroad. A core group of about a dozen experts would work full-time on the project and could draw at will on the expertise of several dozen corresponding experts that are carefully selected by the core group. A significant share of the core group should be independent experts (i.e. with no link to corporate or state interests). In addition, the ITFF would work in an open expert network, free to draw on any expertise…

The smog is said to be not from cars or coal plants, but from the smoke from wood stoves and fireplaces. And it’s not because the Greeks are curling up with a good book. It seems that there has been a massive switch off heating oil as many can no longer afford it to heat their homes. Bloomberg says heating oil prices have risen here 50 percent from 2011 to 2012, mainly due to the heavy taxes levied on. So the Greeks are turning to burning everything from furniture to chopped down trees, some illegally cut from protected forests. According to the EPA, a fireplace emits more than 2,000 times the amount of fine particles that an oil furnace does. Surely, the environmental and health care costs from toxic clouds of smoke exceed the benefits of collecting high heating oil taxes, especially if the citizens are no longer buying it.Editor’s note: Mycle Schneider is an independent international consultant on energy and nuclear policy based in Paris. He is the coordinator and lead author of the World Nuclear Industry Status Report.

The most recent contender for the category of femme fatale of the century, Casey Anthony, is still woefully fresh in the American consciousness.  This past summer, the pert young single mom from Florida stood accused of killing her two-year-old daughter, Caylee.  When Anthony was acquitted in early July, many pundits visibly seethed at their certitude that a villainous “tot mom” had escaped her rightful due, with cable news star Nancy Grace erupting in an impassioned anti-Anthony tantrum that went viral. But Anthony’s saga, and all the attention it garnered, also sparked a counter-trend: vocal and often eloquent critiques of the 24/7 news cycle that has made a lucrative enterprise of sensationalizing stories of young white female victims and perpetrators, while ignoring countless other cases of equal moral gravity (say, crimes committed against non-white, non-poster-child populations).Mens alle 131 parlamentsmedlemmer fra Orbans regjerende høyrekoalisjon stemte for, manglet de likevel ytterligere to stemmer for å få den påkrevde to tredels majoriteten som skal til for å endre grunnloven.Forslaget var ment å gjøre det mulig for landet å nekte å ta imot flyktninger og migranter som blir fordelt gjennom EUs kvotesystem.At forslaget ble avvist, var et noe uventet tilbakeslag for Orban, som allerede har…

Just one year later, America was gripped by an even more sensationalized trial: that of Lizzie Borden, a young woman from Fall River, Massachusetts, charged with killing her father and stepmother with a hatchet.  Borden’s case, too, sparked a veritable cottage industry of commentary, with hundreds of reporters covering each twist in the trial and dozens more writing books about Borden’s surprising acquittal.  Again, speculation after the trial was rife about Borden’s sexual identity (was she dating female silent film star Nance O’Neil?!), as well as her sanity. More than a century later, Borden still features in children’s jump rope rhymes (“Lizzie Borden took an axe/and gave her mother forty whacks…”), academic dissertations, award-winning documentaries, themed bed-and-breakfast retreats and a well-reviewed punk rock musical, “Lizzie Borden: A Musical Tragedy in Two Axe.” Most recently, HBO announced the development of a mini-series based around the lurid murder, starring Hollywood it-girl Chloe Sevigny, who apparently regards Borden as a “countercultural icon.” How did Patty Hearst cross the line from being a perfect girl-victim to an unforgivable girl-perpetrator?  Around 9 pm on February 4th, 1974, the 19-year-old heiress to the Hearst family publishing fortune was kidnapped from her apartment in Berkeley, California, where…

Hva som er en dyr veske? 2.000, kanskje, sier en av jentene vi møter i lunsjen på Hamar katedralskole. Fra den andre siden av bordet i kantina protesteres det. 2.000 er ikke mye. Absolutt ikke. 10.000 – derimot – begynner å bli litt.Men det er jenter på Hamar katedralskole som har vesker som er langt dyrere enn som så. Ryktene sier at ei har veske til 16.000 kroner, som hun bruker på skolen.Det er så mye at det blir lagt merke til. Omkring oss svinser Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors og Marc Jacobs. Bildet er litt mer sammensatt enn det de nasjonale mediene har presentert fra hovedstaden de siste dagene. På Katta er det fortsatt en god del aldeles ordinære skolesekker å se, noen nøyer seg sågar med stoffnett, men den andelen som foretrekker eksklusive bæreanretninger har vokst seg overraskende stor. Uansett hvilken retning du vender blikket i katedralskolens matpause, vil du kunne se en veske av den eksklusive sorten.Rundt bordet sitter Anita Kristiansen, Julie Jensen, Elisabeth Nesset, Stine Bjørnebye, Synne Kringsjaa og Ronja Reithaug. De er 17 år gamle, går andre året på videregående, og er godt utstyrt.Anita har Michael Kors-veske til rundt 3.500 kroner. Synne sin Louis Vuitton koster…

Natt til mandag gikk den 73. Golden Globe-utdelingen av stabelen i glamorøse Beverly Hills, og som vanlig var det ingen mangel på både kjente fjes og spektakulære antrekk.Kirsten Dunst, Heidi Klum, Jane Fonda, Jennifer Lopez, Sylvester Stallone, Denzel Washington, Amy Schumer og Emilie Clarke er bare noen av de store navnene som tok turen opp den røde løperen i Los Angeles. Glamorøs Det er alltid knyttet stor forventning til stjernenes antrekk, og i år var skuespiller Kate Hudson blant dem som stjal showet i størst grad.36-åringen var iført et antrekk fra Michael Kors, og toppet stasen med diamanter til en verdi av 1,3 millioner dollar, ifølge Page Six. Helt siden Malaysia Airlines flight 370 forsvant den 8. mars i 2014, har hele verden lurt på hva det var som skjedde da flyet med 239 mennesker om bord forsvant sporløst på vei fra Kuala Lumpur til Beijing.Store ressurser har blitt satt inn i søket etter vraket, blant annet i havet utenfor Australia. Mens man ikke er kommet noe nærmere svaret på hva som skjedde med MH370, har man oppdaget flere nye mysterier på havbunnen.Menneskeskapt I desember lokaliserte letemannskapene et gammelt skipsvrak på havbunnen, melder CNN.Analysene viser at objektet sannsynligvis er menneskeskapt,…
