In the midst of editing a tome on the global financial crisis, I find myself wondering. About Europe. Money happens. Names are chosen. Was anyone thinking?

European Union (1993, economic and political confederation)

Council of Europe (1949, body promoting cooperation, no legislative powers)

European Council (1961/2009, heads of state of European countries)

Council of the European Union (1957/1993, legislative body of the EU)

European Commission (1958/1993, executive body of the EU)

Two innovations allow hummingbirds to hover in the air and fly like insects, even though they have the bones of birds. Read the piece to find out what they are.

Bonus: it includes a guide to flap your arms like a hummingbird. You will look very silly.
