Ukraine officially recognizes Russian aid convoy as humanitarian

Finally, Ukraine's government signed authorization needed for Russian humanitarian aid to enter Ukraine. Everyone agrees that the cities of Donetsk and Lugansk have been cut off from food and medicine for days. With the endorsement of Secretary of State Kerry, Ukraine's neo Nazi, U.S. backed government had held up agreement to let the convoy enter the country. Claims of a Russian Trojan Horse operation came even after Russia offered the Kiev government ride-along privileges from the entry point on the Russian border. RT released this at 22:19, about two hours after the previous update when entry was still refused. Three cheers for the people of Eastern Ukraine who must soon get the humanitarian aid they need. May their government stop attacking them and negotiate a respectful solution to the conflict.

Vanishing point ...

So as MH370 totally vanished, the MH17 story must also totally vanish.

By What Means Have Income and Wealth Steadily Been Transferred to the Rich?
This transfer has mainly occurred by way of employers making sure that the profits and benefits of ever greater worker productivity (which advancing machinery and technology steadily provide) is rarely if ever shared with workers in the form of a reduced workweek and/or a higher hourly wage. Instead, this ongoing stream of newly created wealth is continually directed upward into their elite pockets.

Warrior Cops Lose a Round in Missouri

The cable news duel between Fox News and MSNBC was interesting to follow as the story in Ferguson, Missouri unfolded through the week.

JPMorgan Chase's $13 Billion Shadow

If the public really understood how badly this bank's employees acted, consumers and investors might stop doing business with them. Banks don't commit fraud; bankers do.
