Bridging The Gap
48 44  Hiroshima visit is the right call: Our view 48 44 Hiroshima visit is the right call: Our view
In the 71 years since the nuclear bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, no sitting president has visited the now thriving city. But the site of the first atomic attack in history has not lacked for American presidents. Richard Nixon visited in 1964, in between his two presidential runs. And Jimmy Carter visited in 1984, after his presidency. Yet the absence of an actual White House occupant is just n...

The software that threatens your identity The software that threatens your identity
Consumers are likely to be all too familiar with the following scenario: Performance on a seemingly new computer suddenly begins to slow to a crawl, websites that used to load normally start to be inundated with pop-ups, and weird ads begin to show up on otherwise normal websites. While this is certainly an annoyance, it could be a symptom of something even worse: an increased risk of identity the...

Saudi alliance presents ideological challenges Saudi alliance presents ideological challenges
It is said politics makes for strange bedfellows, and none is stranger than the U.S. and Saudi Arabia. Speculation about Saudi complicity in 9/11 and its financial support for some of the terrorists is rampant. The Saudis export radical Wahhabi Islam and support jihadism. Further, their country is a symbol of dictatorship that is contrary to precious American ideals. Yet, our government calls S...

The Mathematicianís 90th-Birthday Party The Mathematicianís 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 ďsingular value decompositionĒ that elicited much mirth. After all, it was also Ivoís 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
IíVE recently returned from the Middle East and East Africa, where I visited a number of refugee camps ó car parks of humanity. I went as an activist and as a European. Because Europeans have come to realize ó quite painfully in the past year or two ó that the mass exodus from collapsed countries like Syria is not just a Middle Eastern or African problem, itís a European problem. Itís 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 whatís 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 terroristís iPhone, and Apple loses: #tellusatoday FBI cracks terroristís 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. óGerald 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 ó 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 worldís 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
Itís an axiom of the TV news business that if it bleeds, it leads, so itís no surprise that the bloodletting within the Republican Party is at the top of the charts these days. Itís 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...
