Which is Stronger?

In terms of manpower, terrorist capabilities, weaponry, and ideological support? The Far Left, Radical Religion, or Neo-Fascists? Prompted by this video (which gave rise to my Katya Adler post). Hm, funny side note. Neo-Nazis these days are less corporatist and more populist than they have ever been. Now it’s anti-globalization (makes sense as it’s dominated […]

French Politics

An interesting look at the varied and colourful characters in the French election. Apologies that this referral is late and already after the 1st round results. Melenchon’s words for Le Pen are probably the highlight. My personal preferences lean towards Sarkozy.

The Undeniable Attraction of German Ladies

Katya Adler is a latest addition to the list. What a find! Smart, motivated, and boasting of an impeccable resume including an ongoing stint at the BBC. Plus she’s a language aficionado. What is the substance flowing through the Rhine that gives rise to such a blend of beauty and intelligence? From anecdotal experience, German […]

Who’s Fleeing California

Wayne Allyn Root had it right when he invited Kim Kardashian to move to Nevada. Americans of all stripes (but mostly white) are fleeing the Golden State to, in the words of Tom McClintock: “California is blessed with the most equitable climate in the entire Western Hemisphere; it has the most bountiful resources anywhere in […]

Lawyers are seeing growing income equality, prompted by top lawyers getting away with charging extra-primo (side question: how would medicine be different if every doc could bill however they wanted instead of accepting insurance leavings? I’d argue that lawyers can […]

Grade Inflation

Inspired by the comments section of The Economist: ┬áThe grade inflation at American Universities reminds me of the few American lecturers I have at my university (GO NUI MAYNOOTH). All the new lecturers from the States get confused that the highest grade given out regularly are in the high 60’s, very high grades to mid […]

Vacation Planning – Northern Ireland

That’s it! Game of Thrones has inspired me to take a vacation to the awe-inspiring landscape where it was filmed.┬áSome of the places I’m dying to see include: Hm, maybe the summer between 4th year and graduation would be a fine time.

Advice for A Young Person Today: Geographic Arbitrage and Career Choice

Finishing an article I started last October. Au contraire, Steve Jobs, students today shouldn’t necessarily pursue their dreams, so say a variety of commentators. Reason being that only a few jobs share the same characteristics that make them appealing to people. The leftover jobs are just as useful (often more so) to society, but are […]
