    SACRAMENTO —  There are 1.6 million Californians today who were alive when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor 80 years ago, pushing America into World War II. Probably half were old enough to remember that dreadful day — “Dec. 7, 1941, a date which will live in infamy,” as President Franklin D. Roosevelt eloquently called it. I was 4, playing with my little brother at the bottom of a slope behind our hilltop house in Santa Barbara when Mom rushed down, very intense. Kneeling at face level, she lectured: “Remember this day. It’s Dec. 7. Dec. 7. It’s historic. America has been attacked. ... We’re at war.” And she kept repeating it. That’s the only reason I remember the actual day that Pearl Harbor was sneakily bombed. I remember other things about the war. Not long after the Pearl Harbor attack, on the evening of Feb. 23, 1942, a Japanese submarine surfaced just north of Santa Barbara and shelled the Ellwood oil field where my dad was working on a crew. No one was hurt. But dad was ticked. “They gave us...

              moreby Dr. Rainer Zitelmann   One of the most frequently raised arguments against capitalism is that it is the primary driver of environmental pollution and climate change. But if we compare Yale University’s ranking of countries with the highest environmental performance with the Heritage Foundation’s Index of Economic Freedom, a very different correlation emerges. For more than 20 years, Yale University has been publishing the Environmental Performance Index (EPI) and ranking countries according to their environmental health and ecosystem vitality. The EPI uses 32 performance indicators across eleven issue categories: Air Quality Sanitation & Drinking Water Heavy Metals Waste Management Biodiversity & Habitat Ecosystem Services Fisheries Climate Change Pollution Emissions Water Resources Agriculture According to Yale University’s analyses, Denmark, Luxembourg, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and France are the highest ranked countries, followed by Austria, Finland, Sweden, Norway and Germany. The report states, “One of the consistent lessons of the EPI is that achieving sustainability requires sufficient economic prosperity to fund public health and environmental infrastructure.” The researchers find that there is a clear positive correlation between environmental performance and country wealth,...
    A carpenter had the shock of his life when the world's most dangerous bird wandered into his workshop.  Tony Fleming had been working on timber furniture when a Cassowary walked into his shed at Julatten, north Queensland. 'Over a period of a year or so the Cassowary would wander around my property, chewing up plums and whatever it feeds on,' he said.  'Then one day it just meandered into my shed.' A carpenter was given the shock of his life when the world's most dangerous bird wandered into his workshop Cassowaries are considered to be the deadliest bird in the world despite their extremely shy nature.  They can stand as tall as 1.8metres and weigh up to 70 kilograms. Their legs can deliver powerful kicks and their claws grow as long as 10 centimetres.  Mr Fleming said that he was alarmed at first, but quickly realised the bird just wanted to inspect his shed.

    Every group of enthusiasts needs its conquering hero, and for the bulging-brained cryptic crossword community, theirs has always been Edward Powys Mathers. Edward, or Bill to his friends, was a balding, bearded chap who, in the 1930s, set fiendishly difficult clues as he sat in bed in his pyjamas with a cigarette and a contented smile. His 'reign of terror', setting crosswords for the Observer newspaper between 1926 and his sudden death in 1939, is still discussed in hushed awe by Britain's legions of cruciverbalists, as crossword fans are known. But it wasn't just crosswords. In 1934, he wrote a 100-page murder-mystery novel called Cain's Jawbone. This was named after the jawbone of an ass said to have been used by Cain to slay his brother Abel in the Bible. In Mathers' book, which recounts 'a series of tragic happenings during a period of less than six months', six people are slain by six murderers in six ways. Having written the mystery, Mathers then jumbled the pages and set readers the challenge of reordering them, not just to reveal a...

    Stepping furtively through the streets of Paris, her face mysteriously shrouded, the figure in the heavy shawl was bound to attract attention – and so it proved. For this was just months after the suicide of paedophile Jeffrey Epstein. And the woman who seemed so anxious to avoid attention bore a remarkable resemblance to Epstein’s former girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell – now the most hunted woman on the planet. Had she fled from America to France? From the moment Epstein was found dead in his New York cell in August 2019, the focus of attention turned to longtime associate Ghislaine, even though she had never been charged with any crime.

    Winter the Dolphin of Dolphin Tale Fame Dead at 16 After Intestinal Infection Richemont shares jump on sales beat and Farfetch investment discussions Don't take World Cup qualifiers between the U.S. and Mexico, like Friday's in Cincinnati, for granted. As international soccer evolves, these unique occasions face extinction. Even when there was next to no traction, there was tradition. Back when American soccer was many miles from the mainstream and when the World Cup may as well have been staged on Mars, the U.S. men and Mexico were playing for passage to the tournament. Technically, the first qualifier between the neighbors (and first meeting, period) was in far-off Rome, just three days before the start of the 1934 World Cup proper. The U.S. traveled by boat. The Americans then triumphed thanks to four goals from future Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Rams coach Aldo ‘Buff’ Donelli, earning the right to get blasted, 7–1, by the host Italians shortly thereafter. Around 10,000 fans attended that inaugural U.S.-Mexico match at the old Stadio Nazionale, according to reports. Among them was...

    MO Salah has become one of the most feared forwards on the planet. The Liverpool hotshot, 29, has been tipped to win the Ballon d'Or after a remarkable year with the Reds. 10Liverpool star Mo Salah follows a strict diet And this season he has been the standout performer in the Premier League, scoring 10 goals in as many games for Jurgen Klopp's title-chasing side. The Egyptian star has achieved greatness thanks to a strict diet and rigorous exercise plan, including 3am workouts during Ramadan. It's that sacrifice that has seen Salah emulate Cristiano Ronaldo as one of football's most chiselled stars. Here's how he did it.

    12 Beloved Movies That Have Truly Terrible Sequels Cars we said goodbye to over the past decade It's fitting that they won the World Series in Houston, where the Falcons suffered their city's most crushing defeat. Before the World Series, Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson was asked a question that he did not particularly want to answer. In addition to playing a sport with a historic, bone-deep inclination toward superstition, he had a personal tendency toward it: At the end of April, for example, after his team had gotten off to a scuffling start, Swanson was seen burning sage in the clubhouse. (The Braves won their next three games.) If you took that action to mean that he placed stock in curses, or vibes, or some other nebulous forms of energy, it was natural to ask him how he felt about the Braves’ playing for the championship in Houston, which happened to be the site of a certain local football squad’s notorious demise four short years ago.  Did the return to Houston have him ready to break out the sage...

    Pace of vaccinations among young people spotlights nations stark regional disparities OnPolitics: Virginias dead heat governors race HOUSTON – Alex Anthopoulos, the Atlanta Braves general manager, had heard great things about Charlie Morton. Everyone has. Spend a little time in and around baseball, and you will too. It was part of why the Braves had signed him — $15 million for the 2021 season after the Tampa Bay Rays declined a team option for as much. Maybe it’s the dad in him, but Anthopoulos prioritizes having good and decent people on his team — the kind that are a positive influence on young players, he says. Like the friends you’d want your kids to have. When they were still considering the signing, he talked to Morton early in the offseason and came away struck by his easy charm. “You get off the phone with them and you're like, this guy's awesome, he's just so thoughtful and bright, and he'll give you all the time in the world,” Anthopoulos said recently. Niceness is, well, nice. But it’s not a compelling...

    Chinese President Xi Jinping shakes hands with U.S. Vice President Joe Biden (L) inside the Great Hall of the People in Beijing December 4, 2013.Lintao Zhang | Reuters The U.S. and China represent the most significant – and potentially most perilous – bilateral relationship in human history.  Given that reality, neither side is managing their rising tensions with adequate skill or durable strategy. That's the way Stephen Heintz of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund put it in a conversation with me a couple of days ago. It is also the subtext of conversations I've had with world leaders visiting Washington, D.C. this week for the IMF and World Bank meetings. U.S.-Soviet relations defined the Cold War, with both sides fielding the unprecedented nuclear capability to devastate each other, and much more. Before that, the Anglo-American relationship was decisive, from intense U.S.-British competition in the 19th century to an alliance that prevented fascist victory during World War II in the 20th century. Yet Heintz's argument is compelling that U.S.-Chinese relations have a historically unique significance, based on their multi-dimensional nature that touches...

The US publication released a glossy and heavily-airbrushed cover on Harry's 37th birthday showing the Duke of Sussex stood behind his wife with his arms on her right shoulder. Harry is dressed in all black and Meghan in white on a terrace at their $14.65million mansion and estate in Montecito, California, as Time said they couple are 'blessed through birth and talent, and burned by fame', adding: 'It would be much safer to enjoy their good fortune and stay silent'.

    (CNN)Despite efforts from President Joe Biden to turn the United States into a global climate leader, most people in the advanced world don't think the US is doing a good job on the issue, and China is doing even worse, a new poll by the Pew Research Center published Tuesday shows. The poll, of more than 18,000 people in 17 developed economies, offers a detailed snapshot into concerns around the climate crisis.

Biden pushes to combat climate crisis while surveying wildfire damage in Western USRespondents expressed serious doubts that international climate efforts would effectively address the magnitude of the climate crisis -- 52% of respondents lacked confidence a multilateral response would be successful, while 46% were optimistic that nations could respond by cooperating. But the poll also suggested a growing awareness of the impacts of climate change, with 72% of respondents concerned that the climate crisis would personally...

But a public garden that’s both beautiful and … wildly eccentric?
