The Mathematician’s 90th-Birthday Party The Mathematician’s 90th-Birthday Party
I RECENTLY attended a conference in honor of Ivo Babuska, a professor at the University of Texas, with whom I have written several mathematical papers. There were toasts with a crowd-pleasing (if prudently priced) malbec and puns riffing on “singular value decomposition” that elicited much mirth. After all, it was also Ivo’s 90th-birthday party. Ivo remains passionately immersed in research, de...

Bono: Time to Think Bigger About the Refugee Crisis Bono: Time to Think Bigger About the Refugee Crisis
I’VE recently returned from the Middle East and East Africa, where I visited a number of refugee camps — car parks of humanity. I went as an activist and as a European. Because Europeans have come to realize — quite painfully in the past year or two — that the mass exodus from collapsed countries like Syria is not just a Middle Eastern or African problem, it’s a European problem. It’s an American ...

Hillary is holding her own with the 99%: Column Hillary is holding her own with the 99%: Column
Hillary Clinton is a tool of Wall Street, the lickspittle of the 1%. That, or something like it, is what’s coming from the most ardent supporters of her opponent for the Democratic presidential nomination. Bernie Sanders, they say, is a man of the people, an economic populist who can save us all from the prevailing neoliberal order that has propped up the rich and failed the rest. But that...

FBI cracks terrorist’s iPhone, and Apple loses: #tellusatoday FBI cracks terrorist’s iPhone, and Apple loses: #tellusatoday
Facebook comments edited for clarity and grammar: Just as I suspected it would, the FBI found a way in. The loser is Apple. It is now potentially in the dark about how the FBI got into the phone of terrorist Syed Farook. It lost total control of how its operating system can be compromised. —Gerald Sarroca The fact that the FBI managed to crack the phone shows that there was no need for th...

Pakistan another terror ground zero: David Andelman Pakistan another terror ground zero: David Andelman
Half a world away from Belgium, terror and death have hit another American ally and where the stakes are even higher. This time, the target was Pakistan — a suicide bomb ripping through a Christian Easter celebration in the heart of Lahore, capital city of the Punjab, killing scores, wounding hundreds. It was a powerful and direct message to Pakistan, which unlike Belgium, likely has the world’s f...

Carly Fiorina: Ted Cruz can stop Donald Trump and Hillary Clinto Carly Fiorina: Ted Cruz can stop Donald Trump and Hillary Clinto
I ran for president because I believe it is time to take our country back from Washington and restore power to the people. I still believe that. In fact, I believe it more than ever. It is time to challenge and reform the system that has put too much economic and political power in the hands of too few. It is time to put a real constitutional conservative in the White House. My husband and I li...

Democrats are blowing it again: Jill Lawrence Democrats are blowing it again: Jill Lawrence
It’s an axiom of the TV news business that if it bleeds, it leads, so it’s no surprise that the bloodletting within the Republican Party is at the top of the charts these days. It’s also true that good news is hardly considered news at all, even when it affects millions of people and undermines a core argument in a presidential race. That is the case with the new Bureau of Labor Statistics repo...

Islamic State's money problems: Column Islamic State's money problems: Column
Once famous for being the richest terrorist group in the world, the Islamic State, variously known as IS, ISIL and Daesh, now faces considerable money problems. Coalition airstrikes, economic downturns in both Iraq and Syria and historically low global oil prices have combined to hit the group where it hurts the most — the bottom line. Coalition successes in countering ISIL financing owe primar...

Republicans' defensive debates miss Pentagon problems: Column Republicans' defensive debates miss Pentagon problems: Column
How can the next president keep America safe? When asked this question in Thursday night’s debate, the Republican presidential candidates largely ignored a necessary answer: Combat the rampant wasteful spending at the Department of Defense. If Republicans are willing to look, there are many places where the Pentagon can reform how it spends taxpayers’ hard-earned money. This could potentially f...

Obama's failing record on drones: Column Obama's failing record on drones: Column
President Obama is on pace to leave a flawed legacy on America’s use of drones. Near the midway point of the president’s second term, a task force of senior military and intelligence officials from the Obama, George W. Bush and Clinton administrations recommended eight steps that would make America’s drone policy more transparent, accountable and consistent with long-term U.S. national security go...
