How did an American jet wind up landing in Iran? http://buff.ly/1hUQ0Dj
There's a puzzle in international aviation and diplomatic circles: How did an American jet wind up landing in Iran?

Thomas Piketty is in high demand. http://buff.ly/1kJinnv
Thomas Piketty is in high demand. The 42-year old French economist's new book Capital in the Twenty-First Century offers a nerve-wracking argument: Because the return on investment tends to exceed the rate of growth, inequality isn't an unintended consequence but an inevitable part of capitalism, and higher taxes on wealth are required to protect democratic society. Promoting the book in...

Almost one-fifth of China’s farmland is polluted. That's about 26 million hectares (64 million acres), the same area as the United Kingdom. http://buff.ly/1lec7ae
Almost one-fifth of China's farmland is polluted, according to a government report released this week. Officials have acknowledged the country's problems with water and air pollution, but the extent of soil contamination has been a closely guarded "state secret," for fear of incriminating certain provinces or companies. About 19.4% of China's farmland is polluted by cadmium, nickel and arsenic, according to the...

Up, up and delay. http://buff.ly/PcQ8RH
Earlier this week, an Airbus A-310 plane landed in Spain 45 minutes behind schedule. Why this otherwise mundane event made news across the country says something about the current mood in Spain. The thing is, King Juan Carlos was on that plane. He was returning from a business trip in the Middle East, and only just made it back...

Co-pilot needed. http://buff.ly/1hU8eVy
Why hasn't Tesla announced a partner yet for its much vaunted gigafactory?  The question is beginning to be asked, and not just by investors. Tesla's share price has underperformed the market by a wide margin since it unveiled its plans to build the world's biggest lithium-ion battery factory on Feb 26.  Although, to be fair,...

This one is for intellectual property nerds—or, you know, anyone who uses the internet: http://buff.ly/1kIVC3d
