This article originally appeared at RTA Louis Vuitton dress featured on an Elle magazine cover has caused a scandal in Ukraine, accused of being sponsored by Russian President Putin. Activists say it’s no coincidence that the dress’s colors are those of Russia’s symbol of Victory Day.

During Vladimir Putin's 4 hour Q & A marathon this week SME's and dairy farmers in particular took center stage. A plea to Russia's president to empower small farmers also shines light on US conglomerate PepsiCo's operations in Russia. At the end of a winding trail of international sanctions, countersanctions, products and commodities Russia and Putin may end up upsetting the world market structures. Here’s a peek inside a lesson the west would a...

A speech at the Valdai Club in Sochi last October by Russian President Vladimir Putin last year resonates loudly today. “Play-time is over” was Putin’s wake-up call for world politicians.

What if you woke up one morning and corporations and their political puppets ran everything? Would you be alarmed to discover freedom, and the notion of peace in your time had been suspended permanently! Good morning.

Extraordinary, long interview with Stephen Cohen.  5700 words, with Part 2 coming next week.  Cohen takes no prisoners, covers all the bases, and does not mince words.  He slices Tim Snyder of Yale, (who accused Cohen of being a Putin apologist) wondering how he can call himself a professor, dices Joe Biden and Boris Yeltsin, and then fricasses Brzezinski , Samantha Power, Victoria Nuland, Paul Wolfowitz, Strobe Talbott, and Fred Hiatt at the Was...

Introduction
If you know me, you don't need this information do you? If not? 

An author and consultant, I began exploring the web about the time Caesar commissioned it to be made. No seriously. I author several news columns, advise Internet companies, and analyze just about everything. 

Check out Everything PR News, Argophilia Travel News, or the archives of some famous tech blogs - I've been around some. As you may be able to tell, I am not always comfortable talking about me. I am however, one of the world's great husbands and dads.

Having only had Hungarian cuisine at a few restaurants in the United States, and at a Hungarian friend's house here in Germany, this Schweich restaurant is now one of my favorites. One might think something like Goulash is easy to make, but I can tell you, the difference in between genuine and "thrown together" soups is vast. Super hospitable, and casual as can be, this local restaurant is a welcome addition to the normal Germany and Italian gastronomy we've grown used to. Try the Palinka here, if you are brave enough for the burn. Expect decent prices on a par with other local eateries. You won't go away hungry, the portions are massive here too.

My family and I arrived in Heraklion on a blustery day in March, 2014. A bit of a storm was blowing in from the sea, the airport was cool and windswept as you'd expect. On arriving at the Lato one of the first things that impressed us was how "apologetic" everyone was over the weather. Having arrived from Germany, the obvious warm for us, and the refreshing atmosphere, made us smile at what we later knew as "Filoxenia" - the Cretan love of travelers. The most spectacular view in the city, perfectly attentive staff, and especially the cuisine here, these and more aspects of the hotel impressed us all mightily. Guests we took to dinner were as impressed by the new chef and the wine selection. Finally, the best thing I took with me home was the memory of waking up, head on a crispy white pillow, staring out at the azure Cretan Sea and the Venetian Fortress. Life should always be like room service at Lato. And I've stayed at 1000 hotels.

Kevin basically rules South Florida condo sales. On top of this, he knows a thing or two about the web. This latter factor puts him about 500 light years ahead of his competition.

Brillant chef Zinonas Christofidis is a genius of creativity and presentation. Guests here can expect the full gourmet treatment, leaving off the pretension and price usually associated with the best gastronomy. This is a classy establishment that offers creative traditional Cretan cuisine. Ask for the hotel director's favorite wine suggestions, this alone will exceed your expectations for the place. I had the Lamb “soutzoukakia”, which is a kind of Greek meatball made with lamb, wheat, and fresh mint for a main - magnificent!

Whatever else these nice folks do, they sure created a nice real estate search mechanism. :)

These folks know what they are doing! SEO is getting back to its basics and the better companies (like this one) are leading the way.
