Russian energy: Europe’s pride, US’s envy
By : M K Bhadrakumar - Sunday October 15, 2006
Buried beneath the heaps of hot words on North Korea’s nuclear test, the announcement in Moscow on Monday about the Shtokman natural-gas deposit off Russia’s Arctic coast almost escaped attention, despite its comparable lethal fallout in world politics. Undoubtedly, Gazprom’s statement shook up the world energy scene - and the calculus of European politics. Gazprom, the Russian gas monopoly, announced that it would develop on its own without foreign companies the (...)

OIL! Addicts Attend G-8 Summit - The G8’s Energy Insecurity

The struggle to separate oil and state needs to be fought at home and at key international events like the G-8 Summit that took place this past weekend in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. When the G-8 met in Scotland last year, global poverty and climate change headlined the agenda. This past weekend in Russia, “Energy Security” was a key issue, but last year’s priorities seemed to be pushed aside. Instead, the G-8 has absurdly defined energy security as the promotion and (...)

While it may create some logistical headaches for gasoline retailers in the short term, the move should not have any impact on the nation’s overall fuel supply. Citgo, which (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy.

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
