In 1997, Gissler’s large-scale study found that the rate of successful suicides among post-abortive women in the prior year was three times higher compared to women in the general population and six times higher compared to women who gave birth.
Even if a ‘deep and comprehensive’ deal could reduce these by say one-third, the economic impact would be tiny: prices of exports worth 13% of UK GDP might perhaps be 1 to 1.5% lower, so even if the price elasticity of demand for these exports was 2, they might rise 2-3% and UK GDP might be 0.3-0.4% higher. This is very small beer.
The multipolar and multilateral world order memes are also a fraud. China, Russia, Europe and other nations are demanding an alternative to the dollar, but if that alternative ends up being a digitized version of the SDR basket under the IMF's control as these countries have suggested, then this means total global centralization, not decentralization.
The ‘witty slogans’ and Enid Blyton-esque picnic lunches beloved of those who marched for a People’s Vote are, on the face of it, harmless enough. But at the heart of the campaign, these twee trappings give way to a darker reality. Remain politics has become an elite status symbol, encouraging a form of dinner-party politics which is antithetical to democracy.
Between 2009 and 2015, solar PV module prices fell by 80%, ushering in a new era of affordability. Solar powered mini-grids don’t just have the potential to bring electricity to new markets, it can also replace the diesel-powered generators commonly used in Africa.
Real terms average hourly earnings peaked more than 45 years ago: The $4.03-an-hour rate recorded in January 1973 had the same purchasing power that $23.68 would today.
Freeland’s role in Canada has never had much to do with Canada, as much as it has with Canada’s role as a geopolitical chess piece in a turbulent and changing world and her current role as Deputy Prime Minister as well as Minister for Intergovernmental Affairs can only be understood in those global terms.
Cold Storage is a chain of grocery stores. Well that does not quite do it justice. Imagine your favourite Waitrose, add some Harrods and Fortnums and you are close. The chain, majority British owned, has stores throughout S.E. Asia and is spreading to China too.
Since Inspector General Horowitz has no purview or authority to investigate the CIA, he will (and has) punt that issue to Prosecutor John Durham. Therefore, a conclusion that the FBI was not dispatching known FBI confidential human sources to spy on the Tump campaign is not proof that no spying occurred.
Steele met Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec on Oct. 11, 2016, 10 days before the first warrant application was submitted, and admitted he was encouraged by a client, the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, to get his research out before the 2016 election on Nov. 8, signaling a possible political motivation.
SCOTLAND is forecast the coldest winter for 10 years – with -13C lows, snow, ice and travel woes, with a weak sun and Arctic chills blamed.
President Obama's role in U.S. intelligence is yet one more mystery. In both the final months of his presidency and in the period since, Obama has said very little publicly about the Russia investigation. But he attended various meetings with top officials about Trump-Russia theories. It’s not clear what he said, but their efforts ramped up in the months that followed.
Longer-term, a deeper correction remains likely, particularly as we head into 2020. If economic and earnings data don’t begin to improve markedly, as currently expected by Wall Street, the current overvaluation of asset price is going to become more problematic to justify.
As I write Sir Mark Sedwill, Britain’s National Security Advisor and ex head of the Civil Service has said such fighters could be repatriated if proper measures could be set up to dealt with them. One suspects such measures will probably not involve trials. The courts will be too busy trying our own troops.
