Planning Ahead Can Make a Difference in the End : NPR
"You can hope your family will examine the evidence and satisfy themselves that the science is sound and that they'll be comforted to know your energy's still around. According to the law of the conservation of energy, not a bit of you is gone; you're just less orderly."

A Land Without Guns: How Japan Has Virtually Eliminated Shooting Deaths - Max Fisher - The Atlantic
"[E]ven the police did not carry firearms themselves until, in 1946, the American occupation authority ordered them to. Now, Japanese police receive more hours of training than their American counterparts, are forbidden from carrying off-duty, and invest hours in studying martial arts in part because they "are expected to use [firearms] in only the rarest of circumstances," according to Kopel."

BBC News - Ukraine or the Ukraine: Why do some country names have 'the'?
"'The Ukraine' is incorrect both grammatically and politically, says Oksana Kyzyma of the Embassy of Ukraine in London.
"'Ukraine is both the conventional short and long name of the country,' she says. 'This name is stated in the Ukrainian Declaration of Independence and Constitution.'
"The use of the article relates to the time before independence in 1991, when Ukraine was a republic of the Soviet Union known as the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, she says. Since then, it should be merely Ukraine."

How Many Stephen Colberts Are There? -
"Colbert too is on the side of corporate personhood. 'Just because someone was born in a lawyer’s office and is incorporeal doesn’t mean he should have no rights,' he likes to say."
"[Colbert] bounds across the set to a table in front of a fireplace with the Latin motto “Videri quam esse” (“To seem to be, rather than to be”)"
"Correction: January 4, 2012: An earlier version of this article misspelled part of the title of a segment of 'The Daily Show' that featured Colbert. It was 'Even Stevphen,' not 'Stephven.'"

Shopping and philosophy: Post-modernism is the new black | The Economist
"But Foucault had belatedly spotted that post-modernism and “neo-liberal” free-market economics, which had developed entirely independently of each other over the previous half-century, pointed in much the same direction. One talked about sex, art and penal systems, the other about monetary targets. But both sought to 'emancipate' the individual from the control of state power or other authorities—one through thought and the other through economic power. Both put restoring individual choice and power at the hearts of their 'projects', as the pomos like to describe their work."

The No-Growth Trap | The National Interest
"Anti-immigrant agitation, racial and religious prejudice, rancorous public discourse, political stalemate and paralysis, eroding generosity toward the disadvantaged—all are the predictable pathologies that ensue from stagnating incomes and living standards... This latest round of such pathologies simply reminds us that even those societies whose citizens talk the best game of having advanced beyond caring about further gains in material living standards—the Dutch, the Swiss, even the Scandinavians—are no less subject to this familiar frustration than their more transparently materialistic American cousins."

The Worst Addiction of Them All | The Nation
KV: "If Western Civilization were a person, we would be directing it to the nearest meeting of War-Preparers Anonymous. We would be telling it to stand up before the meeting and say, 'My name is Western Civilization. I am a compulsive war- preparer. I have lost everything I ever cared about. I should have come here long ago. I first hit bottom in World War I.' Western Civilization cannot be represented by a single person, of course, but a single explanation for the catastrophic course it has followed during this bloody century is possible. We the people, because of our ignorance of the disease, have again and again entrusted power to people we did not know were sickies."
