In an article published May 15, 2013, American historical social scientist Immanuel Wallerstein wrote, "Nothing illustrates more the limitations of Western power than the internal controversy its elites are having in public about what the United States in particular and western European states should be doing about the civil war in Syria." Those limitations are palpable in both language and ...
forced two newspapers and two radio stations to shut down while they conducted a search – and kept them shut.

Madras high court seeking the court's direction to quash its own month-long summer vacation merits serious consideration. Such long leaves for the judiciary, which is already under considerable strain due to a mountain of backlog cases, are not in keeping with the realities of the courts. According to the law ministry's own admission, there are over three crore cases pending in various ...
corruption in every alleyway in India, so wise up, why should cricket be an exception? The second, and higher order, perspective, is that corruption is increasing the world over. Time permitting, we can magpie-pick our favourite corruption site and that could be in any continent, anywhere. Go ahead, surprise yourself! Why has corruption become so pervasive all over?

Death is said to be the great leveller. As the poet put it: "Sceptre and crown/ Must tumble down,/ And in the dust be equal made/ With the poor crooked scythe and spade."

Actors Reese Witherspoon and Joaquin Phoenix will reportedly team up again for a crime thriller, to be directed by Paul Thomas.
The popular duo was last seen together in the 2005 movie "Walk The Line", for which Witherspoon even won a best actress Academy Award.
They are now set for a big screen reunion in upcoming movie "Inherent Vice", reports dailystar.co.uk.
The film is based on Thomas Pynchon's 2009 novel of the same name, with Phoenix playing a pot-smoking private detective named Doc Sportello, working a missing persons case in 1970s Los Angeles.
Others who will feature in the movie are Martin Short, Owen Wilson and Benicio Del Toro.
