Putin visits France, hopes to mend strained ties with West

On a visit likely to shape Russia-France ties for years, French President Emmanuel Macron hosted Russian President Vladimir Putin at the sumptuous Palace of Versailles on Monday for what the newly-elected French leader said would be 'demanding' talks on Syria, the Ukrainian crisis and other thorny issues driving the rift between Russia and the West.

Will the crazy global debt bubble ever end? It can't or else

There are multiple sources of friction in the Perpetual Motion Money Machine.

We've been playing two games to mask insolvency: one is to pay the costs of rampant debt today by borrowing even more from future earnings, and the second is to create wealth out of thin air via asset bubbles.

The two games are connected: asset bubbles require leverage and credit. Prices for homes, stocks, bonds, bat guano futures, etc. can only be pushed to the stratosphere if buyers have access to credit and can borrow to buy more of the bubbling assets.

If credit dries up, asset bubbles pop: no expansion of debt, no asset bubble.

YoNews Portal / Stop asking kids how they're doing in school

Stop asking kids how they're doing in school

As a rule, I no longer ask school age-children how they're doing in school. Let me explain why.

Recently, my wife and I took a trip to see family and friends, several of whom have school-age children. I noticed that when adults interact with children, one of the first questions they pose is "How are you doing in school?" or some variation ("So, keeping your grades up?").

I also notice that if the child answers that they are anything other really well, the adult responds as if this is a bad thing, "Well, I'm sure you'll do better next quarter." Perhaps most revealingly, children  -  even engaging in small-talk  -  rarely, if ever, ask each other this question. I can only assume that they know better.

Doing School

They found strategies to succeed in school without having to do much deep learning.

Top two reasons why people commit suicide

Hopelessness and emotional pain are the two main reasons why people attempt suicide, research finds.

Common beliefs about suicide were not strongly supported by the study.

People were less likely to mention the following reasons:
Financial problems,as a cry for help,or to solve some kind of practical problem.Instead, it was more because the emotional pain they were in was unbearable and they felt that it would never go away.

Sick cops beat kids on elementary school playground

A dramatic video posted to Facebook this weekend shows two Springfield police officers wreaking havoc on children at a playground. The department is now conducting damage control after the video began going viral on Sunday.

The video is of an incident that unfolded Friday afternoon around 7:00 pm at the playground of Harvard Park Elementary. According to police, they were responding to reports of alleged criminal activity in the area. When the police arrived they demanded all the children vacate the playground.

Apparently, the children didn't leave the playground fast enough or moved to the other side of it, which caused all hell to break loose. As the brief video shows, the officers attempt to grab some of the children and one of them falls to the ground.

Once the officer is on top of the child on the ground he begins to dole out punches to the boy's face and chest. It is unclear what caused the officer to begin beating the child. However, it appears it was not at all necessary and could've sparked a much more serious incident.

Several dead, trees uprooted & streets blocked as severe storm hits Russian capital (PHOTO, VIDEO)

Several people were killed and dozens required medical treatment as the Russian capital was hit by a heavy storm midday on Monday, the Moscow mayor has confirmed. The storm uprooted trees and tore the roofs off buildings.

"There are casualties as a result of the storm, more than 40 people applied for medical attention. My condolences to the relatives and loved ones of those who died," Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin tweeted.

Sources in the emergencies services earlier told TASS that one person had been killed by a falling tree in southwest Moscow.

In another incident, a bus stop was torn from the pavement by the strong wind and was blown toward pedestrians, fatally injuring one person.

'Mad Dog' Mattis: Civilian casualties 'fact of life' amid US tactics of 'ISIS annihilation'

Civilian casualties in the war against terrorism is a "fact of life," US Defense Secretary James Mattis has said, insisting the US are the "good guys" doing everything "humanly possible" to annihilate ISIS with minimal collateral damage.

The US's highest military official made the comments during a CBS Face the Nation program, where he spoke about "accelerating the tempo" of the anti-terrorist campaign and using "annihilation tactics" against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).

"We have already shifted from attrition tactics, where we shove them from one position to another in Iraq and Syria, to annihilation tactics where we surround them. Our intention is that the foreign fighters do not survive the fight to return home," Mattis outlined.

"What about civilian casualties as a result of this faster tempo?" program host, John Dickerson asked.

"Civilian casualties are a fact of life in this sort of situation," Mattis replied. He however insisted that the US military tries to "avoid civilian casualties at all costs," doing "everything humanly possible consistent with military necessity."



Comment: The US method is very questionable since bombing 2 ISIS fighters in a building full of civilians is not considered avoiding "civilian casualties at all costs." Iraqi official calls on Washington to compensate for US-led airstrike that killed over 100 civilians

It is a terrible "fact of life" for these people given they were invaded for no reason at all in the first place and now must endure this continuing onslaught from ISIS and the US.
