As many retailers retreat to online selling, Nordstrom is betting big on bricks and mortar. One of the last remaining retail dynasties, the multibrand monolith opens its first New York shop tomorrow. The secret to its success? Confidence, perhaps. “We are going to have a lot of unique things that you won’t be able to find in other Nordstrom stores or, frankly, any other store in the city,” say...

The drive to expand NATO is insanity. The drive to expand NATO is insanity.
The North Atlantic Treaty Organization was created in the late 1940s to confront Soviet communist expansion in Europe and to protect Western civilization and freedom.
