How America became the most powerful country on Earth, in 11 maps

We take it for granted that the United States is the most powerful country on Earth today, and perhaps in human history. The story of how that came to be is long, fascinating, complex — and often misunderstood. Here, excerpted in part from "70 maps that explain America," are maps that help show some of the key moments and forces that contributed to the US's rise as sole global superpower.
The complex and fascinating history of how a handful of British settlements in the New World grew into the most powerful nation in human history.

Just when I thought nothing in Kemang really excites me to drive all the way there, I bumped into Komunal 88. I am confident to say, once you here, it won't stop at only one visit. At least for me, on this 2015, this place by...

What is happening here is very clear: PDI-P cadres, at the request of Ibu Mega are reporting KPK commissioners in order to stop the investigation on Budi Gunawan, after Jokowi was forced to accept him as a nominee in spite of the President public stand on corruption.
This is political business as usual in Indonesia where the weight of patronage effectively trumps protestations of democracy.
Doing so demonstrates that Ibu Megawati doesn't respect law and democracy any more that Prabowo, but at least, he admits it openly... Once again, it is a pity that being someone's daughter is the only prerequisite to power, and the open door to meddle negatively in Indonesia future...
And do you know the very worst? Ibu Mega (one could wonder whether this stands for megalomaniac) has already arranged for her own daughter to follow on her dreadful legacy.

There are renewed concerns that Indonesia cannot keep up with the ever-growing popularity of air travel as incomes rise and low-cost carriers multiply.

"It's clear, the Russians are selling all of their rubles, and when locals abandon their currency it is time for foreigners to leave,"
Moscow (AFP) - The plunge of the ruble hasn't left only Russians shell shocked -- foreign workers from traders to maids are considering bailing out as Moscow turns from an El Dorado into a financial black hole.

Fascinating... I guess the XXIst century Jakarta is like the 1920's New York
 
Fascinating history of the lobbying campaign that took streets away from pedestrians and gave them to motorists.
In the 1920s, auto groups redefined who owned the city street.

Story
Tagline
Everything you want is just on the other side of Fear.
Introduction
My criminal record is blank. 

My courage is intact. 

I'm not a wretched of the earth, but neither am I a slave driver or a profiteer. I belong without shame but without excessive pride either, to this middle class that is targeted for extinction in any society that aims to level down.

I hold that race, creed and nationality, though significant, are finally irrelevant as they always fail to define anyone. But people want to reduce others to labels, to tick the check-boxes and believe they know them: "where are you from?" they ask... 
I for one, have if not nurtured, at least welcome in my life many contradictions that resulted in an individual that can't easily be categorized.

So for what it's worth here it goes:
  • Born and bred in France, I have spent most of my adult life "abroad". So I can say without the shadow of a doubt that grass is always greener wherever you water it.
  • Raised a Catholic, I am now a determined humanist, married to a Muslim lady, also a humanist.
  • Educated as a mechanical engineer, I chose Sales as my first job.
  • Having acquired an MBA, I evolved to makeup artistry.
  • Fifty-plus years old, I have lived one and a half family life (the "half" being going on)
  • I have four beautiful daughters ranging from 24, 22 and 20 to a fizzy 8 years-old. 
  • I am an entrepreneur and a liberal.
  • I want the social well-being of my fellow Man but believe in self-improvement more than assistance.
  • I exercise to become older, not younger.
I live in Jakarta, Indonesia, where I am gradually building a socially responsible group of companies with the help of many talented individuals and a few loved ones.

It's ok as a shop for food. Often runs out of stock of products previously sold, though.

This place should be more crowded. Clean outdoor areas are far and few in Jakarta and this "mall without walls" should be doing very well, but the selection and quality of food outlets is a bit of a let down.

This is a place where staff understand that a pet is a family member. Our dog recovered there from a very serious head trauma and the care is excellent.

As fast-food Commercial burger joints go, this is a good one. Burgers are Grilled fresh to order and the selection is good... enough.
