Khartoum, the capital of Sudan and one of the largest cities in Africa, has been reduced to a charred battleground. A feud between two generals fighting for power has dragged the country into civil war and turned the city into ground zero for one of the world’s worst humanitarian catastrophes.

As many as 150,000 people have died since the conflict erupted last year. Another nine million have been forced from their homes, making Sudan home to the largest displacement crisis on earth, the United Nations says. A famine looms that officials warn could kill hundreds of thousands of children

It’s a woman’s right to fly her own flag! Hear, hear Justice Alito.
.
Alito concludes with asking that his wife be left alone, to enjoy her vacation home and her flag. “It is a place, away from Washington, where she should be able to relax.” Bravo, Justice Alito. I am buoyed and heartened by your thoughtful, spirited defense of your wife. You and I have not always seen eye to eye, but I am glad that we have at last found some common ground on issues related to women’s privacy, autonomy, independence and decision-making capabilities vis-à-vis government interference. I look forward to reading many more of your thoughts regarding women’s rights to obtain flags. And by flags, I mean abortions.. https://www.washingtonpost.com/style/power/2024/05/29/samuel-alito-wife-flag-letter/

DARVO (Deny, Attack, Reverse, Victim, and Offender) is a tactical maneuver manipulators use to groom individuals, and, indeed, entire social groups. It involves controlling people’s perception of events through a specific sequence of actions. Those who experience the DARVO process often feel disoriented as the perpetrator of abuse actively revises the facts and distorts the truth. By crafting a fictional narrative that bears no resemblance to reality, they sow seeds of doubt. Bystanders, regrettably, accept the manipulator’s lies as truth. Meanwhile, the recipient of the abuse becomes a scapegoat and a target of vilification

Progressive Democrats aren’t turning activism into election wins.
Despite intense focus on pro-Palestinian protests, many of were championed by the far-left wing of the Democratic Party, the self-proclaimed progressive bloc has struggled to churn out victories at the ballot box.
Oregon’s Democratic primary served up the latest example of this uphill fight, as the more traditional liberal wing won two contested primaries. State Rep. Janelle Bynum, with the backing of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, crushed a progressive favorite, Jamie McLeod-Skinner, by about 40 percentage points.

“So my question is, what’s the problem? Why can’t we shoot them down? Is it defense? Yes. Is it an attack on Russia? No. Are you shooting down Russian planes and killing Russian pilots? No. So what’s the issue with involving NATO countries in the war? There is no such issue.”
“Shoot down what’s in the sky over Ukraine,” he added. “And give us the weapons to use against Russian forces on the borders.”

We represent a group of 25 Yale faculty who have just returned from a five-day visit to Israel. Our mission was to learn from and make meaningful academic connections with our Israeli counterparts. Much of what we learned and observed astounded us.

Jews only have Israel. Otherwise, they have to put their faith in the majority population who have never missed a chance to oppress them when it serves their interests to do so.

UN has acknowledged that its initial reliance on data from the Palestinian Ministry of Health, administered by Hamas in Gaza, contributed to the inflated figures. The organization has cited difficulties in independently verifying casualty data.
Israeli officials have reiterated longstanding concerns about the manipulation of casualty data by Hamas for propaganda purposes. They contend that the inflated numbers do not accurately reflect the reality on the ground and emphasize the need for independent verification.

On October 7, 2023, four thousand terrorists from Hamas and other groups crossed into Israel and attacked over twenty sites in southern Israel. The attacks killed over 1,200 Israelis and the attackers kidnapped 240 hostages, taking them back into Gaza.
highlights many of the common characteristics of urban warfare that were on display during the attacks and how it might serve as a case study from which to extract lessons on terrorism and urban warfare.

Article: My father grew up in a village in the Swiss mountains, where he ate fresh, whole foods that had been cooked from scratch and prepared on the day they were eaten. But in the 30 years between his childhood and mine, in the suburbs of London, the nature of food transformed across the Western world. He was horrified to see that almost everything I ate was reheated and heavily processed. The evidence is clear that the kind of food my father grew up eating quickly makes you feel full. But the kind of food I grew up eating, much of which is made in factories, often with artificial chemicals, left me feeling empty and as if I had a hole in my stomach. In a recent study of what American children eat, ultraprocessed food was found to make up 67 percent of their daily diet. This kind of food makes you want to eat more and more. Satiety comes late, if at all.

Texas man files legal action to probe ex-partner’s out-of-state abortion.

senior staff attorney with the Center for Reproductive Rights, described Mitchell’s statement and general approach as misleading “fearmongering.” “People need to understand that it is not a crime to leave Texas or any other state in the country for an abortion,” said Duane, who is working with lawyers from the firm Arnold & Porter to represent the woman and others targeted in the Davis case. “I don’t want people to be intimidated, but they should be outraged and alarmed.”
