Despite the global manifestation of mass shootings, they are frequently seen as a distinctly American phenomenon. The flipside of the American Dream, as it were, is the gun crazy nightmare and the instant “dark celebrity” that running amok with a firearm can achieve. And to understand that, argues Lankford, we have to understand the American gun culture, and the values that surround it.

America certainly leads the world in terms of its rate of gun ownership with almost 90 guns for every 100 people. The proportion of gun owners in the USA is falling, now around 35% – except among Republican leaning voters. Gun owners now tend to own more guns than they used to, choosing to augment their personal firepower as newer guns (military specification semi-automatic pistols and assault rifles) become available.
New research suggests mass shootings are not just due to gun ownership, but gun culture.

Is Tesla, with its tightly integrated supply chain, following the strategy of another one-time dominant automaker – the Ford Motor Company – of over 100 years ago? Can it revolutionize the world by making an affordable electric car for the masses, much the way Henry Ford did with the Model T in 1908?

"It is likely, too, that the levels of corruption and chicanery uncovered at Prasa are matched or exceeded at other state-owned enterprises. There are at least 130 state-owned enterprises in SA, including biggies like Eskom, SA Post Office, SA Airways, Alexkor, Denel, Transnet, Telkom, Airports Company, PetroSA, and the National Lotteries Board. The potential for looting is mind boggling."

At UCT for instance, liberals like Hodes contend that freedom of expression and tolerance already exist because UCT does not censor its students nor prevent admission based on race. But if that were true, there would be no need for a student movement at all. The problem is that there is little tolerant, democratic or even free about UCT when, in fact, the university maintains its current elitist structure.
Forced into the public domain has been UCT's function as a "non-profit" corporation and its collusion with mining multinationals.

“Just because I am an adult video porn star ... does it mean that I cannot pay a debt of gratitude to my beloved Taiwan?” Hatano was quoted as saying by the Focus Taiwan website.

The 27-year-old, whose films include A Nurse’s Confession and Immoral Trip on a Sleeper Train, was recently ranked the ninth most popular porn star in Asia, according to the erotic video website Xvideos.com.
Protests after Japanese star Yui Hatano’s image is printed on Easycard travel cards which can be used on metro and bus routes.

There should be no place in South Africa for universities that make students feel unwelcome, that make students doubt their sense of self and where white privilege is protected, writes Athambile Masola. http://owl.li/RzG3Z

From January to June this year, the collective contribution of wind energy and solar power (photovoltaic) projects to the economy exceeded their tariff (of R4.3-billion) by R4-billion. Wind energy produced the most net savings of R1.8-billion, the CSIR report said.
According to a report, fossil fuel savings and reduced load-shedding have saved the economy R8.3-billion in the first six months of the year.

On June 25 the minister of trade and industry published draft regulations in terms of the National Credit Act, which, if adopted, will cause the costs of small credit (typically money loans), which are already excessive, to become exorbitant.

If implemented, these new costs will have a devastating effect on low-income consumers, and increasing amounts of money will be drained out the hands of the poorest merely to service debt – this at a time when government claims that poverty alleviation is a national priority.
New draft credit regulations could cause the cost of debt to skyrocket, hitting the poor the hardest.
