heavy-hearted voting | the huffington post


yui mok/pa archive it's another one of those weeks in parliament when a big vote will occur. like with the syria air ault vote the days preceding the event mean that, for mps like me, my inbox and social media flood with demands on both sides of the fence. i don't mind this, people have little other recourse than to contact mps. i would ask that people focused on contacting their own mp. i know those sending me emails from their homes in the south with sign offs like, "please listen to me, kind regards, mrs a smith, rose cottage, sus " perhaps don't realise how jarring it is when pitted against hundreds and hundreds of emails with an opposite view from people in my own community. i want to say that there are few things more maddening than when people demand that i use my conscience to vot

market currents: the impacts of an oil import tax


crude is rallying on this final day of january, as hopes and projections of opec production cuts return to the fore once more. before we charge into a new month tomorrow, amid weekly inventory data to boot, hark, here are five things to consider in oil markets today.1) the implications of a border adjustment tax (bat) – aka an import tax – on u.s. crude would not only impact import flows, but exports and domestic production as well.if crude was homogenous, then there could be direct substitution: u.s. domestic production, suddenly at a 20 percent a ntage given an import tax, could replace crude imports. but it is not quite that simple; crude comes in many different grades (we tracking nearly 400 of ’em). there are three main grades: light, medium and heavy. this is where the challenge aris

can a president who disregards the truth uphold his oath of office?


oliver munday for the washington posti don’t believe that president trump was lying when, the day after he swore the oath of office, he told a roomful of cia employees that the crowd at his inauguration “looked like a million, a million and a half people” and “went all the way back to the washington monument.” i don’t believe he was lying when he recounted that the rain “stopped immediately” when he began delivering his inaugural address and that “it poured right after i left.” and i don’t believe he was lying when, on monday, he repeated in front of lawmakers his post-election falsehood that 3 million to 5 million illegal ballots cost him the popular vote.trump was doing something far worse.lying, as defined by philosopher harry frankfurt, is an act undertaken intentionally to obscure the






even as trump seeks warmer ties with russia, u.s. deploys troops across eastern


zagan, poland — on a snowy field in southwest poland, u.s. tanks and troops gathered on monday to defend against a resurgent russia that president trump wants to befriend.the major new deployments of tanks and other heavy equipment will fan out to nations on the russian frontier this week, part of the largest infusion of u.s. troops to europe since the 1991 breakup of the soviet union. but the long-planned effort comes at the most unsettled time for u.s.-european relations since world war ii, with trump questioning old alliances and seeking to build bridges to the kremlin.when president barack obama committed the troops, about 3,500 in all, to europe last february, then followed up with additional commitments to nato over the summer, they were a bipartisan expression of support for u.s. al

va gov’s race: perriello is running against trump


tom perriello, the former democratic congressman, is running for his party’s nomination for virginia governor. he is also running against president trump.on tuesday, perriello sent out a fundraising blast, urging democrats to donate to his fledging 2017 paign as a way of rejecting trump. in an email with the subject line “help us defeat trump this year”, perriello said “i decided to run for governor because i’m determined to fight with every ounce of my being to make sure virginia rejects trump at the ballot box this year. in his new backyard, we will defeat him with what he hates most -- a diverse and progressive majority that crushes him and his loser ideology.”perriello, 42, jumped into the contest last month, challenging lt. gov. ralph northam (d) for the democratic nomination to be de

trump makes his pick, but it’s still anthony kennedy’s supreme court


president trump has chosen his first nominee, but it remains justice anthony m. kennedy’s supreme court. the question is how much longer he wants it. kennedy, 80 and celebrating his 29th year on the court this month, will remain the pivotal member of the court no matter how the warfare between republicans and democrats plays out. on almost every big social issue, neither the court’s liberal, democratic-appointed justices nor kennedy’s fellow ­republican-appointed conservative colleagues can prevail without him.[for conservatives, a year of letdown at the supreme court]that is why an undercurrent of trump’s first choice for the court was whether it would soothe kennedy, making him feel secure enough to retire and let this president choose the person who would succeed him.

readers weigh in on mathematical animals and more


critter calculationssavvy for judging quantities is turning up across the animal kingdom — even among spiders and other invertebrates, susan milius reported in “animal math” (sn: 12/10/16, p. 22). some astute readers pointed out that designing experiments to test animals’ quantitative skills takes great ingenuity, but sometimes human bias may skew the results.“articles on animal cognition often presuppose that animals are non-intelligent. thus, when researchers find that a dog can distinguish between a small and large number of items, it’s hailed as significant,” matthew fisher wrote. “if we think of cognition as existing along an evolutionary continuum, then results such as these are not surprising. the same evolutionary forces shape human cognition as in any other animal,” he wrote. “we

why bringing tragedy to life through film is important


on patriots’ day, april 15, 2013, a pair of homemade pressure cooker bombs exploded near the finish line of america’s annual boston marathon, killing three people and injuring almost 300 more. motivated by extremist islamist beliefs, chechen-american brothers dzhokhar and tamerlan tsarnaev were quickly identified as the terrorists responsible, and within four days of the attack, tamerlan was dead and his younger brother captured. sentenced to death on june 24, 2015, dzhokhar is currently awaiting execution. around the same time as dzhokhar’s sentencing, director peter berg declared his intention to shoot a movie about the bombing and subsequent manhunt. local press complained it was much too soon for hollywood to dramatise an event that the city was still recovering from.






low social rank bigger health risk than obesity: study


paris: people on the bottom rung of the socioeconomic ladder may live two years less on average than those at the top, according to a large-scale study published on wednesday.this makes social rank a bigger risk factor for illness and premature death than either high alcohol consumption or obesity, and it nearly equals the risk posed by physical inactivity, researchers said.on average, a low social rank shaved over 25 months off the average lifespan, compared with six months for heavy alcohol intake and eight months for obesity, according to lifepath, a european commission-funded consortium that conducted the study.for diabetes, the risk was almost four years in lost life, and for smoking nearly five.the study was the first attempt to weigh the health risk of socioeconomic status against o
