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.

"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.

I don't think I'm going to comment on this one. For those who don't live in Indonesia, MUI stands for Majelis Ulama INDONESIA and is the country's top Muslim clerical body.
But Merry Christmas to all!

Hmmm.... Interesting point. I'm still in favour of offing the drug traffickers though, as a signal that Indonesia wants to clean its act. These executions may lack moral rightitude as so eloquently argued by the author, but they are legal, contrary to the extra judicial killings committed under President Soharto. And that too, at the time, sent a song message.
What the author fails to point out is that drug trafficking is part of a larger criminal web, one that endangers more than the life of addicts.
And yes, those caught were probably very low on the crime syndicates ladder rungs, but their deaths will be a deterrent to others. 
If President Jokowi really does care about saving lives, and if they really do believe that this can be achieved by executing the “kingpins” who trade in dangerous substances, then why not execute tobacco barons along with drug traffickers?

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.

A real gem! Don't let the appearance of the alleyway deceive you, this is one of the very best places to enjoy tasty and impeccably prepared Turkish food around Sultanahmet. Enjoy the passion and care that the owners put in their food and in their place.

This is a review I had to cut and paste. For some reason the name chosen for my original review turned into Plaza Indonesia only. So this review actually dates back from early 2012... A good concept, but too expensive for the kind of food served. Edit August 2012 The quality of the food improved tremendously. Still overpriced, but now worth a visit every now and then.

Very nice, freshly made and tasty! I really don't regret walking around 1.5 km to reach here, as my 9 years old daughter was looking for crêpes. The menus are priced reasonably enough, for more choice, go à la carte. It's a small place, so try to avoid the obviously very crowded periods, postpone your lunch a little or go for an early dinner instead.

To the management of Skye:1) Being denied entry for any reason, including the fact that my nephew, though above 18 and the legal limit for alcohol is still below your own 19 years old rule does NOT make the place more desirable... Rather the opposite. 2) Skye is killing your other flagship venture in the area. Went to Soho after being turned down at Skye and found it empty... ................ EDIT about seven months later............ Looks like the "in" crowd had come and gone. It's now easy to get in a place that has more style than substance. Expect standard service, expensively priced food, but a brilliant setting, overlooking Jakarta. We went there today as an unplanned visit on a Sunday brunch and found it half empty. Service was erratic at best, most of what we wanted being first said to be sold out, then available after we tried to place a replacement order...
