While every western media outlet keeps their eye on Syria, opposition leader and activist Aleksey Navalny has revealed that General Attorney Yuri Chaika and his family have connections to the Russian mafia.

A good summary of events, but it's hard to imagine anything being done about this corruption anytime soon. No doubt that Chaika and his family are already on western sanction/no-fly lists, for what those are worth. It seems little will change as long as Putin remains in power to appoint people like Chaika to positions of power.

I don't know what Merkel is expecting to come out of all this. The immigrants that came in the 70s still haven't integrated since the German system fails at promoting/forcing integration. Now they act like these 1.5 million people that came this year will integrate just fine.

Also, why do they talk about integration so much when these are refugees that supposedly should return once the war in Syria is over.

Ireland's deficit will be eliminated before 2018, according to Irish finmin Michael Noonan. Five years ago, Ireland had the highest deficit in the €-zone.

Ireland collected 7.5% (€3bn) more in tax receipts in November than expected, with large increases in corporate tax receipts and VAT receipts. The result: Ireland's 2015 deficit will be 1.7%, not the previously expected 2.1%.
Selling state-owned bank shares has also helped Ireland lower its deficit.

>being this mad

Think of it the world in less national terms and more like a market, the prices are not cost but tax levels. These corporations want to move around to avoid taxes above what they believe is acceptable or whatever. Plenty of tax havens already exist, scores of Caribbean islands for example. This should be less, "Fuck them blah blah blah fair share blah blah blah," and more learning from their example. We live in a globalized world and the West needs to learn to compete again, these are Western ideas/concepts.

When everybody lowers taxes you are not getting anywhere. You're just losing money to multinational companies.

The enactment of statewide laws permitting the use of cannabis for therapeutic purposes is associated with an annual reduction in obesity-related medical costs, according to data published online ahead of print in the journal Health Economics.

Investigators at Cornell University in New York and San Diego State University in California reviewed twelve years of data from the CDC’s Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System to examine the effects of medical marijuana laws on body weight, physical wellness,...

They concluded, “These findings are consistent with the hypothesis that MMLs may be more likely to induce marijuana use for health-related reasons among older individuals, and cause substitution toward lower-calorie recreational ‘highs’ among younger individuals.”

The findings are similar to those of other recent observational studies, such as those here and here, concluding that cannabis use is associated with reduced body mass index and obesity.

I think that the decision of the UK to fight Daesh is more nuanced than for America. Many of the most recent Islamic terrorist attacks have taken place in Europe. It's true that Daesh is becoming stronger but the majority of the terrorists (if not all of them) have been home-grown. That's why I don't think that destroying Daesh will stop terrorist attacks in Europe.
