V.I. Vernadsky and the American System in Russia

Published 2019-10-11 21:53:22 by Matthew Ehret in Headline-News, Russia, Science, United-States

In recent years, Russia has lept ahead of all expectations by not only regaining those scientific and technological capacities which it had lost during the rape of Perestroika during the dark period of the 1990s, but with President Putin’s unveiling of new plasma-based and supersonic weapons that render the NATO-led doctrine of Full Spectrum dominance (relatively) obsolete, the nation has become a world leader on the frontiers of advanced science once more. Since a friendship among Russia and the United States is infinitely preferable to an unwinnable nuclear war, it fitting that a brief review of Russia’s industrial/scientific origins occur… Continue ->

New York, USA- The United Nations is facing its worst cash crisis in nearly a decade because almost one-third of its member states have not paid their annual dues, according to Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

By: Hanne Nabintu Herland, historian of religions, best selling author and founder of The Herland Report.  Simply by pulling forces out of Syria, the work to end the North Korean crisis, the efforts to end the Kashmir crisis, president Donald Trump is a far more worthy Nobel Peace Prize winner than Obama ever was. He received the Nobel in the midst of escalating the war in Afghanistan, days after taking office. It was a scandal and a strong signal that the Norwegian Nobel Committee is politically rigged. Obama had done nothing to fulfill the Alfred Nobel requirements for the… Continue ->

With Argentine elections taking place on October 27, President Mauricio Macri is now making desperate attempts to win the elections as his popularity continues to plummet.

With the social and political chaos of Argentina, Macri is literally taking any measure to continue to lead a country whose economy continues to suffer. The 72-year-old Manuela lost her shoe when she was taken to the stage. “Oh, it’s… Continue ->
