Imagine a private, global super court that empowers corporations to bend countries to their will. This system is already in place, known as investor state dispute settlement, or ISDS.
A parallel legal universe, open only to corporations and largely invisible to everyone else, helps executives convicted of crimes escape punishment. Part one of a BuzzFeed News investigation.

How one U.S. state kept America from joining a global coalition against corporate secrecy.
In 2009, a global coalition was pressing governments to lift the veil on corporate secrecy. Its members – U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration, influential senators, international law enforcement agencies, anti-corruption activists and major American allies -- presented a formidable front in their campaign against money laundering and tax evasion.

The world got together to try to save the monarch butterfly, and then climate change ruined the plan.
Extreme weather toppled many of the fir trees in Central Mexico where the butterflies rest for the winter.

This is a two part observation.  There are solutions.  One is for as many folks as possible to build butterfly farms.  The next is to 3-D render the linguistic aspect of Monarch which is what I am doing.

Story
Tagline
The Stream is a social media community with its own daily TV show on Al Jazeera English.
Introduction
The Stream is a new phenomenon – a web community with its own daily show on Al Jazeera. The Stream taps into the extraordinary potential of the increasing power of social networks to disseminate news. Individuals have now become an integral part of the news information network through their ability to publish information and share opinions on events as they take place. 

The viral nature of social networks allows for such information to spread and multiply rapidly. While these developments have the potential to generate more heat than light, to a broadcaster like Al Jazeera, they are also a huge opportunity to reach news in places and at levels until now impossible. 

The Stream is a super-aggregator of these online sources, seeking out both untold stories and new, ground level takes on stories in the mainstream.
