New Jersey Auto Dealers- this century's Tammany Hall (Christie as Tweed?) Tells +Tesla Motors they aren't allowed in their sandbox. Ugh. Courtesy of +WIRED
"But there is some solace taken in the New Jersey decision: It calls attention to the hypocrisy of supposed free-market politicians propping up an unloved industry at the expense of real competition."

Kleptocrats- how E.U. shell companies & illicit traders helped Yanukovich funnel Ukrainian assets away from Ukraine. "The tragedy is that the funds that the UK & US are promising to pay to Ukraine are generally owed to Russian banks which were part of the corruption of the Yanukovich regime," says UNDP Anti-Corruption advisor Stuart Gilman.

If you're going to read only 1 piece that articulates why Russia is doing what it is Ukraine (& beyond), this is it. On Russia's billions, Europe's hypocrisy & America's inability to counter: http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2014/03/russia-vladimir-putin-the-west-104134.html#.UxTviPmcLyA
The West is blinking in disbelief – Vladimir Putin just invaded Ukraine. German diplomats, French Eurocrats and American pundits are all stunned. Why has Russia chosen to gamble its trillion-dollar ties with the West? Western leaders are stunned because they haven’t realized Russia’s owners no longer respect Europeans the way they...

1-in-4 Americans don't know the earth circles the sun. But before my friends across the Atlantic get too excited, "Americans actually fared better than Europeans who took similar quizzes — at least when it came to the sun and Earth question. Only 66 percent of European Union residents answered that one correctly."

In short, we're fuc*ed.
They must have been sick the day this was taught in school.

Yes, yes, yes! This line says everything, ironically lost on those who not only misunderstand evolution but science itself: "There is more room for a god in science than there is for no god in religious faith."
After writing yesterday about the now-famous/infamous debate between Bill Nye and Ken Ham, I don’t want to make this blog all creationism all the time, but indulge me this one more time, if you will. On BuzzFeed, there is a clever listicle that is a collection of 22 photos showing...

Sipping wine and swapping stories the other night, my friend confided in me that her daughter- a junior in an elite private school- is relieved to be wrapping up a 2-month long, 5-day per week SAT test prep course. "For $700, this course better be worth it," shrugged my friend, who has diligently taken her child to and from the course each weeknight for 8 weeks....

A majority of today's top execs attended state universities for their undergraduate degrees (woot woot! I'm a huge proponent of state institutions & the product of one myself). That said, this doesn't necessarily bode well for the next gen of C-Suites: "If you think back to when the executives now went to school, around 30 years ago, it was sort of the…golden era of state universities, which really boomed in the late ’60s and ’70s"
A new study provides a snapshot of the demographics and career trajectories of Fortune 100 executives.
