From Soviet Crimes Against Humanity Emerges a Global Movement to Abolish Nuclear Testing and Weapons

August 29th marks "The International Day Against Nuclear Tests" and this is an opportunity to remind the world why there is a need to abolish nuclear tastings anywhere in the world and to document what impacts it have.

Kazakhstan: Ground zero near Kurchatov in East Kazakhstan, the first Soviet nuclear weapons test was carried out on this vast and featureless step just 100 miles from Semipalatinsk on August 29th, 1949. It remains an epic center of the Cold War for the former Soviet Union and 456 nuclear weapons wer...

Colonial Pipeline restarted operations, owners say 'it will take several days' for supply chain to return to normal

The owner of the Colonial Pipeline said Wednesday that it has begun to restart operations after having to shut off the conduit following a cyberattack last week.

Colonial Pipeline Co. said it initiated the restart of pipeline operations around 5 p.m. ET, but said "it will take several days for the product delivery supply chain to return to normal."

The shut-off of the pipeline, the primary fuel conduit serving the East Coast, spurred gasoline shortages in the southeastern and mid-Atlantic states.

Gas prices jumped above $3 Wednesday as nervous motorists filled up after a cyberattack on the Colonial Pipeline. Drivers feared fuel shortages.

Covid-19 Splits the Middle East

But beneath a façade of near-normalcy is a troubling fact: the disparity between the countries that have done best in the face of Covid-19 and those that have done worst is large, and it will divide the region even more starkly between rich and poor states. In addition, while Covid-19 itself is unlikely to cause collapse, it has wreaked devastation precisely in the most vulnerable countries. For many of them, Covid-19 will hang over their economic, political, and social development for many years to come.

Like much of the world, the Middle East has navigated Covid-19 better than many initially had feared. Infection curves have spiked and flattened and then spiked again, but they have not collapsed medical systems. Economies have not crumbled, and governments have endured. Compared to predictions of a...

Analysis: On Myanmar, ASEAN pushes boundaries of "non-interference"

Myanmar activists say the ASEAN plan is still too weak and has little real chance to bring peace to Myanmar, where mass protests and strikes have continued despite the killing of hundreds of mostly peaceful protesters since Aung San Suu Kyi's elected government was toppled on Feb. 1.

Few had high hopes that a summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), which counts Myanmar among its members, would produce any serious initiative to end the bloodshed after Myanmar's coup, with the junta leader himself in attendance.

Two die in driverless Tesla incident. Where are the regulators?

It’s a 21st century riddle: A car crashes, killing both occupants — but not the driver.

That’s what happened over the weekend in Houston, where a Tesla Model S slammed into a tree and killed the two men inside. According to police, one had been sitting in the front passenger seat, the other in the back of the car.

Auto safety experts and driverless technology advocates hope someone will put an end to Tesla's word games and rule-skirting.
