ECONOMY – BANKRUPTCIES (BY RICK PULITO)

More retail bankruptcies mean more worthless gift cards…

This week’s announcement of bankruptcy by Borders Book Stores is another in an ever-growing list of retailers who have left consumers holding the bag, or more appropriately an empty bag, as their gift cards will be rendered worthless.

What surprised me is the depth and breadth of retail organizations that are either on their way out or likely to fail in the next twelve months. An article on the investment site www.investinganswers.com this month lists more than twenty large, nationwide retail companies that are at an elevated risk of failure.

E, apesar de a resposta para a pergunta inicial ser não, um exame da aventura olímpica dos gregos serve para ilustrar por que hoje o país está à porta da União Europeia e do FMI com o pires na mão.

EDUCATION

The Creation—and Consequences—of the Model Minority Myth

Below is an article by Julianne Hing copy & pasted straight from Colorlines:

Asian-Americans face significant challenges to getting their education, says a new report out from the National Commission on Asian-American and Pacific Islander Research in Education. And the study has got everyone from experts to students talking, because the findings fly in the face of conventional wisdom about Asian American students as high-achieving, so-called model minorities.

Indian investigators are only beginning to sift through the wreckage of three terrorist bombings in Mumbai today. Suspicions have immediately turned to Pakistan-connected militant groups. Whatever the investigation uncovers—and it’s still very early—one thing is clear: Those groups still operate despite international pressure on Pakistan after the Mumbai attacks of nearly three years ago.
