SCOOP COMMENT & OPINION

Motoring: Karl Ferguson Plays At Being James Bond For A Day
- How can something as common as an engine noise sound so magnificent? After all, it’s just cylinders and exhaust working in unison and yet, there’s nothing quite like the sound you hear from Aston Martin’s latest, the sublime Vantage. And then you go through a tunnel and everything is magnified by ten and you know that heaven on earth is attainable after all. See... MOTORNET: Advantageous Acquaintance [1]

Economics & Energy: Bonus Joules Gets The Measure Of Economic Measures
- Recently a school janitor proposed a new principle of energy. If correct it predicates the survival or demise of humanity. Should we be concerned that the principle suggests Peter Jackson’s new movie, the Dam Busters could be a damn buster? You decide. See... Bonus Joules: Dark Measures [1]

Nuclear Weapons: Impressions On Korea's Accession To The Nuclear Club
- Months before 9/11 and the "global war on terror" - and two years before the Iraq War - George W. Bush tested out his tough-talkin' diplomacy on communist North Korea. Bush combined harsh rhetoric and intimidating tactics to demonstrate to Pyongyang that there was a swaggering new sheriff in town. See...

Cuba: Julie Webb-Pullman Remembers The (Forgotten) Cuban Five
- Wow! The US doesn’t only do it in Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, Afghanistan, Europe, Asia and North Africa – they practice cruel and inhuman imprisonment right there at home as well!! And despite the daily diet of anti-terrorist rhetoric their mainstream media dishes up as nauseum, for the last eight years there has been only misinformation, Miaminformation, or an iron curtain of silence regarding the treatment of five Cuban anti-terrorist political prisoners in the U.S. and their families.
