On September 9th, Queen Elizabeth II became the longest reigning British monarch in history, passing the record set by her grandmother, Queen Victoria. In her 63 years on the throne, she has seen the world move into the modern age politically, culturally, and scientifically.
Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a little more crowded.

LONDON - This is a photo of my soaking wet laundry on the clothesline, where it's been hanging for three days and three nights.

When all is said and done, what the recently-approved Iran nuclear agreement is all about is ensuring that Iran honors its commitment under the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) not to develop nuclear weapons.
I think socialism is becoming popular sooner than I expected. With technology inexorably solving scarcity as it eliminates good-paying jobs, a push for a more socialist approach has seemed to me to be inevitable. But it's happening faster than I thought
A stay in a historic mansion-turned-hotel sounds particularly cozy. And sorry North America, South America, Asia, Africa, and Australia (Antarctica, you were never in the running), but nowhere does a stunning estate better than Europe.
The UK has a moral obligation to save people who are fleeing from war and persecution. It is as simple as that. We can discuss the modalities, but our generosity in welcoming them should not raise a single eyebrow.
New data, with help from Google, illustrate unprecedented -- and until now, largely overlooked -- forest loss in Southeast Asia and West Africa, among other hotspots.
Carsi, one of Turkey's largest, if not its largest, fan group has long campaigned for social justice related issues, and played in 2013 a key role in the biggest anti-government protests since Mr. Erdogan's rise to power in 2003.
Not that there's anything wrong with London, but Hopper wanted to find you some other places to fly in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Wales! Some are large cities, other tiny dot-sized villages hidden in the rolling countryside.

Amid the cacophony of Islamphobic and extremist discourses, the film Journey into Europe presents insights on cementing understanding between Islam and the West. Never has the need for a redefined and updated definition of coexistence been so urgent.
Character is the most important of all of the four C's of credit: character, capacity, collateral, and capital. Even if misfortune destroys the latter three, people of good character will find a way to pay you back.
The old English dude, his arms have badly drawn tattoos on them, sailor type things, fading anchors, he sinks deep in his Guinness, and yells out, "You wanker!" at no one in particular.
Two exhibits of my work, Oil and Water and Re/Viewing the American Landscape are currently on view at Blue Water Fine Arts in Port Clyde, Maine. I've been spending summers painting in Maine for close to forty years and exhibiting there for over thirty.
I believe two of the litmus tests by which we can judge any society are to investigate both the ways in which societies treat their children, and the ways in which they treat animals.
