    by Yuri Rubtsov (Russia) Strategic Culture Foundation January 6, 2015 This is the first substantial upgrade of Russia’s military doctrine published in February 2010. The document had to be revised by the end of 2014 in response to the growing pressure exerted on Russia by the West after Moscow refused to recognize the legitimacy of the coup in Ukraine. A military doctrine offers no spectrum of responses to isolated threats but rather provides guidance on countering the long-term trends undermining the country’s security. The revised version of the doctrine describes the following factors…

    by Alastair Crooke, for Huffington Post December 2, 2014 BEIRUT — A profound transformation of the global monetary system is underway. It is being driven by a perfect storm: the need for Russia and Iran to escape Western sanctions, the low interest rate policy of the U.S. Federal Reserve to keep the American economy afloat and the increasing demand for Middle East oil by China. The implications of this transformation are immense for U.S. policy in the Middle East which, for 50 years, has been founded on a partnership with Saudi Arabia.

    Over the past several years I’ve been diagnosed with four autoimmune conditions: Type 1 Diabetes Hypothyroidism Addison’s disease B12 deficiency from atrophic gastritis These are all permanent conditions that require prescription medication on a regular basis. The problem I want addressed is not with the prescription refill process (though it could use some tuning), but with the prescription RENEWAL process. All of the medications, from insulin to injectable vitamin B12 expire after about a year and have to be re-issued by a prescribing doctor. Usually the process takes a work day…
