  • Don't call it a comeback: Nicolas Sarkozy wants to be president of France again

    By <a href="/author/ryu-spaeth" ><span class="byline">Ryu Spaeth</span></a>
    19 Sep 2014 | 1:45 pm
    Nicolas Sarkozy, who in 2012 became the first incumbent French president to fail to secure a second term since 1981, announced today that he will seek to lead his party, the conservative Union for a Popular Movement, in what is seen as the first step toward a presidential campaign in 2017.Americans may remember Sarkozy with a certain degree of fondness. Republicans embraced his rise to power in 2007, comparing his brash style favorably to his predecessor Jacques Chirac, who famously refused to join George W. Bush's coalition of the willing in Iraq. Mitt Romney went so far as to call Sarkozy…

    By <a href="/author/scott-meslow" ><span class="byline">Scott Meslow</span></a>
    19 Sep 2014 | 1:01 pm
    In a Friday press conference, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced a plan to overhaul the league's disciplinary process for issues like domestic abuse, and implement a new "clear, consistent, and current" policy by the end of the season. "We didn't have the right voices at the table," admitted Goodell during a post-conference Q&A.Goodell reiterated that the past few weeks have "seen all too much of the NFL doing wrong," and specifically reiterated an apology for the way he handled Ray Rice's assault case. "I let myself down. I let everyone down. And for that I'm sorry," said…

  • Pretending we're not at war

    By <a href="/author/william-falk" ><span class="byline">William Falk</span></a>
    19 Sep 2014 | 9:25 am
    When is a war not a war? U.S. fighter planes are attacking ISIS forces in Iraq and will soon do so in Syria, which meets the common-sense criteria for war. But the U.S. Constitution and the War Powers Resolution of 1973 both require specific congressional authorization for war, and President Obama isn't asking Congress for permission. For legal authority, he's citing Congress's 2001 resolution authorizing President Bush to use military force against anyone who "planned, authorized, committed, or aided" the 9/11 attacks. One problem: ISIS didn't exist in 2001. Most members of Congress seem…
  • The surprising truth about the UN

    By Michael Soussan
    19 Sep 2014 | 7:03 am
    Each September since 1945 has delivered a delightfully awkward few days when world leaders — some of whose armies have bludgeoned each other all year on the battlefields — all converge on the UN General Assembly in New York.The meeting inevitably provides ammunition for commentators who think the UN is impotent — "all talk and no action." But this underestimates the impact — both positive and negative — that the UN can have around the globe.The key to using the UN correctly is to be realistic about where it can, by nature, make a difference, and where it risks...
  • Is the president's ISIS campaign even legal?

    19 Sep 2014 | 6:15 am
    The Atlantic's Conor Friedersdorf says I give President Obama too much leeway to wage war without having to explain why. That's not exactly my position.For the record, I think the president should ask Congress for its approval on his ISIS campaign. I also think the 2002 Authorization For the Use of Military Force against al Qaeda and associates should be declared null and void. These are not political judgments; they are judgments based on my evaluation of what seem to be the most persuasive arguments. And I am open to revising them.I also think that the president's constitutional…

  • Peter Thiel, and the not-so-secret secret of innovative success

    By <a href="/author/pascal-emmanuel-gobry" ><span class="byline">Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry</span></a>
    19 Sep 2014 | 6:05 am
    You should read Peter Thiel's new book, Zero to One. Even if you don't have the slightest interest in business. Even (especially!) if you don't already avidly follow everything the PayPal founder and innovative entrepreneur says.Zero to One is ostensibly about the startup business. Indeed, the subtitle is "Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future." But the book is really about how you should live your life, whether or not you're an entrepreneur.The book takes its title from Thiel's dictum that it's better to create something genuinely new (going from 0 to 1) than to copy what has…
  • Everything you need to know about Alibaba's blockbuster IPO

    By <a href="/author/sergio-hernandez" ><span class="byline">Sergio Hernandez</span></a>
    18 Sep 2014 | 9:25 am
    For weeks, Wall Street has been working itself into a frenzy over Alibaba's potentially record-breaking IPO on Friday, Sept. 19, said Chris Wright at Forbes. But as is so often the case when internet companies go public, hype can quickly become hyperbole. So what exactly does the Chinese e-commerce giant do to warrant a market value of more than $170 billion, three times bigger than General Motors? "It's almost easier to list what Alibaba doesn't do," said Mark Broad at BBC. As China's biggest online commerce company, Alibaba owns several wildly popular and successful sites: Taobao, an…
  • Is this the first sign of rising inflation?

    18 Sep 2014 | 8:17 am
    As Business Insider's Joe Weisenthal points out, August was a stellar month for wage growth. Month-on-month wage growth rocketed to 0.4 percent after being flat in July. It was by far the best showing in a year:(Bureau of Labor Statistics/Business Insider)Why is this such a big deal? Well, wages are one of the key factors that the Federal Reserve is watching alongside the unemployment and underemployment rates as signifiers of labor market slack. Rising wages are a sign that employers are bidding up the price of labor, indicating that the supply of job seekers can't keep up with growing…

    Marcus Persson, better known as Notch, the founder of Mojang, says he doesn't "make games with the intention of them becoming huge hits."But Minecraft, of course, became a huge hit, which was partly why Microsoft paid a cool $2.5 billion for Mojang, Minecraft's maker, earlier this week.A deceptively simple game with low-fi graphics, Minecraft has attracted more than 100 million users who get their kicks from building virtual structures out of computerized, Lego-like blocks. Minecraft has become something of an art form, with users creating beautiful, incredibly complex structures, from…

    After listening to naysayers and inflation hawks intone for years that the Federal Reserve's monetary policy would weaken the dollar and spike inflation, it's perversely gratifying to see that — even after all that money printing — the dollar has strengthened over the last three years:(Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis)The dollar has been on a particular tear in the last few weeks. This is the ninth straight week where the dollar index has increased on the back of various geopolitical turmoils — from the ongoing crisis in the Ukraine and the expansion of ISIS in the…

Republicans embraced his rise to power in 2007, comparing his brash style favorably to his predecessor Jacques Chirac, who famously refused to join George W. Bush's coalition of the willing in Iraq.

You just go to a grocery store, you find someone with long hair that's a girl, start kissing her, one thing leads to another. Then you buy her a ring, you get married, you buy a house. And soon enough you're converting your upstairs office into a potential baby room.The "white picket fence" myth is our standard for adulthood, and the backbone of many a movie's happy ending.

    I love supermarkets, but I feel unbridled adoration for bulk bin aisles especially. There is something very satisfying about scooping stuff into bags (see also: pick-and-mix candy stores, my truest love and biggest weakness). Something about getting exactly the amount of an ingredient that you need, so you don't end up with 7/8 of a box of nutritional yeast that sits in your pantry for all of eternity. Something about 15 types of raisins in a row. Something about paying absurdly less for quinoa than the same amount available in a pre-packaged box. I imagine it is the general store, and for…

    It's a classic scenario: You give your kid his allowance with the caveat that he won't be getting more until the following week. The next day he blows it all during a trip to the mall.Then when he begs and pleads for more money … you give in.Of course, if you saw other parents cracking open their wallets after declaring they wouldn't give another dime, you'd shake your head.But for some reason it's harder to stand your ground when you're at the negotiating table with your own offspring.

    For most affluent baby boomers, crafting an estate plan is already on the to-do list (or already done). But too often, planners say, the equally important task of discussing that plan with potential heirs becomes less of a priority."Money and death are two of the more emotional things that people don't want to talk about," says Howard Hook, a CPA and certified financial planner with EKS Associates in Princeton, New Jersey. "But this is a conversation that's important for families to have."Only a third of Americans actually expect to receive an inheritance, although 44 percent of Baby…
