European Politics Of Yesterday

DENMARK, once a foot-dragger on moves to a more federal Europe, is now an enthusiast for everything except a common security policy. That would make it harder for Denmark’s Nordic neighbours, some of which are neutral, to join the EC. Denmark’s priority is more EC power over the environment and social issues. It wants a list of workers’ rights-including training, worker participation, and freedom of association-written into the treaty.

Denmark would also like tile EC treaty to embrace lots of fresh subjects, such as consumer protection, health and culture. It will argue that almost all decisions, excepting only those on foreign policy, should be taken by majority vote. Otherwise, the

More Stuff From The Hard Drive Recovery Front

So this hard drive repair thing is on my mind again. I did get my laptop back and all of my data back to the quickly thanks to this company. I really don’t know very much about the industry in general, but I imagine that there are probably a lot of people who don’t know very much about it as well. The result has to be that companies who do data recovery probably charge quite a little bit of money to quite a lot of people.

I would bet that if you came to them and told them you know absolutely nothing about computers, it would be the equivalent …

Going Democratic Worked Longer Term, Suffered At The Beginning

Over the years American academics like Robert Dahl, Juan Linz, and Seymour Martin Lipset have clarified what it takes for countries to reach full democracy. Drawing on their work, the president of the National Endowment for Democracy, Carl Gershman, recently produced a list of eight phenomena that are associated with mature democratic polities. The eight are: regular, meaningful elections; stable and representative political parties; a vigorous free press and other vehicles of information exchange and debate; a vigorous civil society i.e., organization of public and private interest groups) that broadens participation beyond the political realm; a market economy tempered by trade unions and social welfare programs; an independent judiciary

Back On The Press

It has definitely been a long time since I decided to blog, and I’m glad to be back. I have to say that a lot of the platforms that are available nowadays are simply a lot better than they used to be. I mean, there used to be LiveJournal, of course, but at the same time I felt like a lot of the other blog platforms were pretty crappy. So I decided to do something about it that I believe is significant, at least to me.

So of course I decided to actually host my own blog for once which makes a lot more sense than having it on …

An Interesting Discovery about Network Television

If I had to pick one of the most amusing shows in the history of television when it comes to politics, I would of course have to talk about The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. There really is no comparative show, although if you talk about the Nightly Show, I guess you get close. My problem with the Nightly Show is that they tend to waste their sometimes high quality panel by producing crappy bits that even Jon Stewart would blush at!

I am not going to bring up the show today because of the fact that there have been any particular skits or interviews lately that have impressed …

Google Losing The Trust?

I will fully admit that I am one of those people who has loved Google from the very start. If you recall how things were on the web with search engine’s a mere 12 years ago, it was a lot of chaos. I remember those times quite a bit because I had just started to get onto the Internet and I was actually pretty happy with the number of search engine that were out there. When I was researching the links for this particular project I was actually shocked at some of these old search engine still exist: yes I’m talking about HotBot.com. Who the heck actually owns this …

My MacBook Has Killed Me

I am finally feeling like I can express myself after what has been a long and incredibly desperate slog. Yes, I am of course speaking of my computer problem that I had recently. The same one that I had to send in for Mac hard drive recovery. I can say that the guys that were working on it were a lot faster than I thought they would be, but that doesn’t make up for the six days that I was without my MacBook.

I know that I shouldn’t be complaining about this stuff because there are people starving in Africa and of course a lot of people have a lot …
