The Campaign to Stop William Barr

The uproar is not about Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani investigating the former vice president. It’s about William Barr investigating Russiagate, which is far more important.

Don’t Bet on Republicans Saving Trump

Impeachment is a political process, not a legal one. There is no legal standard for ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ as stipulated in the Constitution. That definition will stand on what the nominally Republican-controlled Senate think.

Climate Fascists Are Closing Down our Theatres

‘Young people are telling us that BP sponsorship is putting a barrier between them and their wish to engage with the RSC,’ said a spokesperson. The pomposity of this might be funny if it weren’t that BP has subsidised their £5 ticket scheme for 16 to 25-year-olds for eight years, allowing 80,000 young people to see RSC performances at reduced rates.

Trump Threatens to “Totally Destroy and Obliterate” the Economy of Turkey if ISIS Fighters Are Released

From above, the world tells its own story—as concentrated pockets of bright light keep the world’s economy thriving. Today’s visualization relies on data compiled by CityLab researchers to identify the world’s largest megaregions. The team defines megaregions as: Areas of continuous light, based on the latest night satellite imagery Capturing metro areas or networks of metro areas, with a combined population of 5 million or higher Generating economic output (GDP) of over $300 billion, on a PPP basis The satellite imagery comes…

Turning the Clock Back

California has passed legislation to significantly restrict the ability of businesses to use independent contractors. This is part of a seemingly global push against the rise of casual jobs (that don’t pay benefits), including the so-called ‘gig economy’.
