"Obama says the U.S. urges Ukraine's military not to get involved in a conflict that must be resolved politically. He's expressing outrage about images of Ukrainian security forces firing automatic guns on Ukrainian people.

Obama says in a statement that Ukraine should respect the right of protest and that protesters must be peaceful. He's calling for dialogue to reduce tensions and address the people's grievances."
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says the U.S. is outraged by violence in Ukraine and is urging President Viktor Yanukovych (yah-noo-KOH'-vich) to withdraw forces from downtown Kiev immediately. Obama says the U.S. urges Ukraine's mili...

Прошлый год у нас трудно переплюнуть... Даже цветущая сирень в снегу в мае на моей памяти недотягивает до февапреля.

Think of the equator, the 0-180 meridian, and the 90-270 meridian. Now, your statement about local flatness of curved spaces is incorrect for spaces with wrinkles.

"...the further our respondents thought that Ukraine was from its actual location, the more they wanted the U.S. to intervene militarily. Even controlling for a series of demographic characteristics and participants’ general foreign policy attitudes, we found that the less accurate our participants were, the more they wanted the U.S. to use force, the greater the threat they saw Russia as posing to U.S. interests, and the more they thought that using force would advance U.S. national security interests; all of these effects are statistically significant at a 95 percent  confidence level. Our results are clear, but also somewhat disconcerting: The less people know about where Ukraine is located on a map, the more they want the U.S. to intervene militarily."

Weird. 65+ year-olds must include lots of even older people, who can't find  their own ass on the map nomore.

"Why Education Spending Doesn't Lead to Economic Growth"

"They don't learn anything, they don't learn anything useful and there's nothing useful to do with what they've learned."

"But even for those kids who do learn something in the classroom, can they do something useful with that knowledge? In many places, including the United States, a lot of the smartest and best-educated students end up in jobs that have debatable social value."

"What explains the limited impact of increased education on economic growth? A possible answer is that education acts as a filter rather than an investment. "

"When it comes to reaping the benefits of schooling, the quality of education you receive is only one ingredient; you also need the opportunity to use it productively. In low-productivity countries, there aren’t as many of those opportunities. That helps to explain why providing a Nigerian with a college education increases her average annual income by about $200. In Mexico, the figure is about $5,400, according to (PDF) Yale University’s Mark Rosenzweig. In the U.S., someone finishing college earns about $24,000 more than someone who merely completes high school."

I have a similar one from my last year in Boston. And it was in May, so there is hope!

You know the date.
For many years, Wernher von Braun was lauded as the father of manned space travel, but to a large extent this was an artifact of Soviet secrecy. The USSR was the first to most early spaceflight goa...

The original video "The inner life of the cell" was stunning, the new one is quite incredible as well. 
 
For my new "Matter" column for the New York Times, I take you inside the crowded, jittery interior of the cell: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/10/science/watch-proteins-do-the-jitterbug.html?hpw&rref=science
The animators who produced the video hit “The Inner Life of a Cell” are back with a look at the messy, chaotic dance performed by molecules in a neuron.

So.... Does it mean that using US-based email server may be enough for the case to be tried in US jurisdiction?




"Americans based their right to bring Firtash and his accomplices to justice on the argument that the conspiracy participants carried out their criminal activity with the help of e-mail accounts located on servers based in the U.S. They discussed their plot through electronic correspondence that passed through American servers. Another thing that binds Firtash and accomplices to the jurisdiction in Chicago is their use of mobile phones belonging to the Chicago operator AT&T."
By Serhiy Leshchenko, Ukrainska Pravda, April 4, 2014 One of the most powerful political clans in Ukraine is on the verge of destruction. The so-called "gas group," headed by Dmytro Firtash, Serhiy...

+Dmitriy Budko , 

> Email and AT&T cell phone usage were the additional justifications.

Yes, but the fact that they popped up is significant. 

> The problem with Russia is that America gave it all bad examples possible. 

+Alexei Tkachenko , there is an excellent opportunity to call up a conference and for all guilty parties to promise Not To Do It Again. Unfortunately, this is not going to happen. Because Doing It Again is Essential for Preserving Essential Freedoms of Free World. Or something like this.
