'The new cycle of conflict has undone the modest economic gains that a two-year peace process, however shaky, brought to Diyarbakir, a city of nearly one million people that Turkey’s Kurds view as their capital.' @DSoguel @csmonitor 
Trenches and barricades now mar a historic district in southeast Turkey where the attitudes of Kurdish business owners who once hoped for a peace dividend are hardening.

Would the US reopen Alcatraz for this guy or would Leavenworth work just as well? @weulich @csmonitor

I guess the question becomes how can Flint residents trust that they have clean water again once city and state officials say it's so. @_jessicamendoza @csmonitor

"After nearly five decades of international efforts administered by the United Nations, development experts concur that family planning programs have been a key tool in reducing global poverty and in empowering women – an undisputed path to development for poor countries." 
Indonesia, the world's fourth most populous country, cut its fertility rate in half over a 30-year period. Now its program faces pushback from conservatives, mirroring global trends in family planning.

As Hillary Clinton's lead recedes in polls for the Iowa caucuses, a new survey shows that a sizable portion of Democratic voters identify as socialists, many of whom support Bernie Sanders. But socialism may not be such a new trend after all.

The US can't afford to lose focus in North Africa. @DSoguel @csmonitor
A string of IS attacks on oil installations are designed to harm Libya and Europe economically rather than replace lost revenues in the group's Syrian and Iraqi strongholds, experts say.
