Politics in Senegal under President Abdoulaye Wade has always been something of a passionate wrestling of rancid tales and counter-tales. The ruling party - the Senegalese Democratic Party (PDS) - has the habit of accusing the opposition of sabotaging the 'established' democracy of the country that sent its own list of grievances to the 1789 French revolution. The opposition in its turn points to the government's wanton contempt towards both the citizens and institutions it is supposed to preserve. While rigidly eschewing any form of dialogue with the opposition, the Wade regime never misses an opportunity to ...
the population of the city of Palma proper was 401,270, and the population of the entire urban area was 517,285, ranking as the twelfth largest urban area of Spain. Almost half of the total population of Majorca live in Palma. The archipelago of Cabrera , though widely separated from Palma proper, is administratively considered part of the municipality. Its airport, Son Sant Joan , serves over 22 million passengers each year. The Marivent Palace was offered by the city to the then Prince Juan Carlos I of Spain . The royals have since spent their summer holidays in Palma.

gnome in the age of decadence -- wingolog
A falling away; decay; deterioration; declension. "The old castle, where the family lived in their decadence." --Sir W. Scott. [1913 Webster] Take a look at the list of slated talks . What is your general impression? Mine is of a large project in a state of marginal returns, in which a larger and larger part of the effort goes to maintenance. On the one hand you have the large deployments, the integration with other software projects. On the other hand the new developments that we have are very careful not to bite off too much: a printing dialog; another revision of ekiga ; a new image library. Ed: Ekiga was probably not a good ... market research, surveys and trends
The Homeless Modern | Front Porch Republic
In 1848 Alexis de Tocqueville wrote of “the approaching irresistible and universal spread of democracy throughout the world.” Since his time the drumbeat has quickened, and with the fall of the Soviet Union the ultimate triumph of democracy seemed inevitable. In his 1992 book, The End of History and the Last Man , Francis Fukuyama argued that liberal democracy really is the final historical step in the development of political thought and practice. The fact that so much of the world today seems either to be embracing democracy outright, or taking faltering steps toward it, or at least paying lip service to it suggests to many ... market research, surveys and trends

If Belgium struggles to pull of federalism, what hope does Europe have?
LIFE IS a bit complicated at times. I am in Stockholm tonight for meetings about EU-China policy, while at the same time thinking about the Belgian elections coming up on June 13th, and what they say about the wider European Union. The print column this week will look at some lessons that the EU might need to draw from the surge in support for Flemish separatists at this latest election. In the meantime, I have explored some of these same themes from a narrowly Belgo-Belge standpoint, in a guest piece for the Flemish newspaper De Morgen .

Paul G. Buchanan: Dissecting North Korean Madness
of contemporary comparative politics is discerning the rationale behind the behaviour of the North Korean regime. In its bellicosity, backwardness, eccentricity, fierce adherence to Stalinist governing principles and lack of regard for international norms as well as the plight of its citizens, the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea (DPRK) is virtually sui generis . The latest evidence of its aberrant nature is provided by the March 26 torpedo attack on the South Korean frigate Cheonan . Forensic evidence examined by three independent experts and the South Korean government confirms what was suspected all along: the 1200-ton ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
How Louis XIV a bad king? - Yahoo! Answers
No, Louis XIV was not "the guy that chopped off his wife's heads", that was Henry VIII, who was king of an entirely different country. The worst thing that can be said about Louis XIV, other than being a paranoid autocrat and everything that goes with that, is that his incessant wars of expansion toward the end of his reign nearly bankrupted France and killed hundreds of thousands. On the other hand, he was a master manipulator and brought the entire French aristocracy under his thumb in an amazingly short period of time, thus ensuring his own security of rule and the centralization of government. The flipside of that ...
What's the definiton of a Terrorist?
They can look like anyone that you see out in the streets, in your neighbourhoods. They have similar beliefs, feelings or they may have similar thoughts, but maybe in a different context. How? Well...People are complex because we all think differently, feel differently even though we share the basic level of emotions, thoughts. We even have something called "needs" that motivate us to do things that we think is good for ourselves, or for other people, in order to reach happiness!
