The Global Order Can Only Be Saved If New Powers Are Let In

Kofi Annan | January 29, 2015 | World
GENEVA -- The Security Council must be enlarged, and developing countries should be given greater voting rights in the Bretton Woods institutions: the IMF and the World Bank. In exchange, the world's newest powers must begin to take on a greater share of responsibility for the global order upon which their success depends. They can no longer stand on the sidelines, denouncing the injustices of the past. Instead, they must join their peers in building the future.

Why Are People So Annoying?

Wray Herbert | January 29, 2015 | Science
The fact is that modesty, or even self-effacement, can be more effective than bragging in creating a good first impression. Most of us know this from being on the receiving end, yet we still err on the side of self-aggrandizement. But why do we get it wrong so much of the time? Here's where some new research may be illuminating.

'Girls Read Comics Too': Rowan, Age 11, Writes a Letter to DC Comics

David M. Perry | January 29, 2015 | Parents
Rowan is an 11-year-old girl. She loves comics and she wrote this letter to DC Comics. I love this and hope DC listens. I've written about my own daughter's love of comics, and hope Rowan helps make comics a little more girl-friendly (and less pink and purple).

When It Comes to China, Shared U.S.-Indian Values Only Go So Far

Dileep Padgaonkar | January 29, 2015 | World
What about "shared values" that Obama and Modi have flaunted? They help in dealing with a shabby world but only up to a point. The pragmatist in Modi knows that since India is China's neighbor, it is imperative to calm a neighbor's angst -- and the angst of distant neighbors -- rather than to merely revel in the effusive cordiality of a country located beyond the seven seas. The basic instincts of the two ancient civilizations might yet astound the world.

Five Years Too Late, The New York Times Admits A Mistake and Boldly Supports a 'Workaround'

Matthew Chapman | January 29, 2015 | New York
We should be grateful that, after years of snobbish resistance, the Times finally changed its mind about one aspect of the 91st Street MTS. But the admission is shamefully late and falls far short of what's needed.
