The Slow Recovery Continues

Jul 24 2014 2:15pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Prince Charles Visits Sony UK Technology Centre
The recovery continues, but it remains weak, indeed a bit weaker than we forecast in April. We have revised our forecast for world growth in 2014 from 3.7 percent in April to 3.4 percent today.

F
In the current conflict, there are those who refuse to grasp the simple, stark truth. Although the distinction between Israel and Hamas couldn't be clearer -- between a democratic nation and a terrorist organization, between the victim and the aggressor, between a society that protects its civilians and one that uses them as human shields, and between a military that operates by a strict code of conduct and a group governed by no scruples whatsoever -- some consider all that irrelevant, ...

Kairos Society Global Summit - Day 2
Does America's immigration system make sense to anyone? The recent influx of thousands of migrant children from Central America has highlighted the failure of reform efforts and gripped the nation's attention.

The Hollywood Reporter is surprise Sony bumped "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" a full two years, from 2016 to 2018, but they have to be in the minority. By charging ahead with the threequel of a dying franchise, Sony risked losing its shirt. Now it has 4 years to try and gin up interest or quietly snuff it entirely.
