Millions of Christians worldwide are celebrating the most important holiday of their faith, Easter Sunday, when they pay tribute to their belief in the resurrection of Christ after his death by crucifixion. Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia delivered his traditional Easter address to hundreds of Orthodox believers gathered at Russia’s main Orthodox church, Christ the Savior Cathedral, which was rebuilt in late 1990s after being demolished in 1931. The patriarch called on the faithful to show care for those who desperately need support and help. “The path of the Savior is the path of love, on which the person

Pretty neat. If only the calendar could stay in tandem all the time! Catholics and Orthodox should be the exact same thing.

The Jesuits and Pope Gregory XII are to blame for the Julian and Gregorian calendars not being the same. Orthodox Christian countries had split with Catholic Christianity centuries before the new calendar was promulgated, and wouldn´t consider adopting a Papal proposal. Protestant countries in Europe wouldn´t make the change to the Gregorian until the 1700s. Holland initially changed to the Gregorian and reverted to the Julian for a time in defiance of the Pope! Talk about cutting off the nose to spite the face.

Check out the video of the Liturgy in Moscow. Putin and his wife celebrating Resurrection, chanting, "He is truly Risen! When I was a kid, people living in Slavic and Russian neighborhoods (Trenton, NJ) would all greet each other saying, in Church Slavonic, "Christ is Risen!" The response was "He is truly Risen!"

Hong Kong’s a rip-off, even if you’re rich
South China Morning Post [Hong Kong], by Peter Guy    Original Article

It is said that the rich man thinks only about money. But, in truth it is the poor man who can think of nothing else. In “Asia’s (most expensive) world city”, you would be surprised who considers themselves to be poor. You can’t measure or hide behind anecdotal evidence showing the deteriorating quality of Hong Kong’s basket of economic goods that constitute quality of life. A locally based senior executive at an international asset manager, frustrated at paying HK$68,000 a month for a flat in Aberdeen for his wife and two kids, decided to move to the suburbs of Taipei where

President Trump has trumped his enemies in the White House Correspondents Association. Not only did he decline to walk into their trap at the annual dinner, where he would have been roasted continuously by (as Twtichy reminds us) “’Daily Show’ comedian Hasan Minhaj (who has referred to Trump as ‘white ISIS’”) and…well…everyone. He yesterday announced counterprogramming that will force many of the presumptive attendees to miss the event”

A review of Donald Trump´s business career would lead one to say that he has always over-promised and under-delivered. Whether his long list of bankruptcies in the ever-profitable casino business, the failures of his "university,´ steak, vodka or clothing lines, there has been a history of putting himself first, while ignoring the needs of his constituents. We may be seeing that play out in his approach to government, as well. As in business, Trump has a constituency of one … himself … just ask his stock and bond investors, his suppliers, contractors, laborers, or even his customers. Unlike Trump, they rarely,

The United States has announced that a secret military ground operation killed an Islamic State operative seen as a close associate of leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and linked to an attack on a Turkish nightclub that left 39 people dead. Abdurakhmon Uzbeki, who was believed to be from Uzbekistan, was killed during the ground assault near Mayadin, Syria, on 6 April, said Colonel John Thomas, a spokesman for the US military’s central command. “It was a ground operation. I think that’s all we’re willing to say about that,” Thomas said, declining further comment. He specified that Uzbeki did not die in

Syrian parents are naming their children after the Russian President as a sign of gratitude, while millions of students, including Bashar Assad’s own children, are learning Russian, Syria’s Ambassador to Moscow Riad Haddad said. “Thanks to the efforts of the Moscow embassy, and with the approval of President Assad, Russian is the second language taught in Syrian schools. We have opened Russian faculties in all of the country’s universities, while children receive tuition from the seventh grade,” said the official, addressing Russia’s upper chamber of parliament, the Federation Council, in Moscow.

China’s smog police held captive

A team of inspectors from China’s environmental protection agency was held against their will for over an hour while they were carrying out pollution checks at a factory. The case reflects the difficulties inspectors face as they attempt to tackle the nation’s chronic air pollution. The inspectors were carrying out checks at Lujie Energy-saving Technology Co in Jinan in Shandong province, the ministry said in a statement. The team found the factory was still using a coal-powered boiler that should have been demolished as well as other problems in tackling emissions. The factory owner became angry, refused to supply documents and locked the factory

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Jared Kushner and his wife Ivanka Trump enlisted the services of Risa Heller, a New York City public relations figure known for her work with Democrats — including former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Gov. David Paterson (D-NY) — when they came to Washington to take up their official posts in the Trump White House, according to a report in Buzzfeed. The revelation came amid reports that a New York City set with a history of friendly ties to the Democratic party is gaining traction in President Donald Trump’s White House, much to the

A former Miss Venezuela is suing United Airlines over a nightmarish midair incident in which a flight attendant handcuffed her and enlisted two burly men to forcibly remove her in a dispute that escalated after she asked for a pillow. Carmen Maria Montiel, a Houston journalist and mom, recounted her ordeal in sympathy for Dr. David Dao, the United passenger who was dragged off a flight last week after he refused to relinquish his seat. “I can only imagine how he felt,” she told The Post. “I will forever be terrorized for what happened to me.” Montiel was sitting in first-class aboard a

With the pathetically humiliating failure of North Korea´s missile launch in the wake of a very big puffy buildup, the shark tank must be working overtime over in Pyongyang. You wouldn´t want to be one of the North Korean minions who worked on that wretched fizzle-out that has humiliated the vicious little dictator on the world stage. He gets mean when the world is laughing. And what a coincidence, it happened as Vice President Pence makes his way to South Korea. And more interesting still, an intriguing leak of sorts has come to light: That the U.S. hacked the launch, ensuring its

Since Donald Trump’s election, the media has launched a full blown war against the new administration. Although the media war against the Trump team has been successful to a certain extent, notably in ousting Michael Flynn as National Security Advisor, so far they have not been as effective against others such as Steven Bannon and the most recent smear campaign’s target, Dr. Sebastian Gorka. Gorka, the new Deputy Assistant to the President and counterterrorism expert, has recently come under heavy attack by the media and some “experts” whose incoherent strategies and recommendations have led to the current terrorism crisis.

Fox News host Sean Hannity has been forced to deny he sexually harassed a former contributor. Debbie Schlussel said the prime time anchor invited her back to his hotel in Detroit after a debate. After she turned down his advances, she claims she wasn´t invited back on his show. In an interview with Tulsa, Oklahoma-based radio host Pat Campbell, she said: ´This kind of stuff is all over the place at Fox News and anything that has to do with Sean Hannity.´ Her comments came just two days after Bill O´Reilly was fired from Fox News over similar allegations.

When we study racial inequality, we tend to consider factors that affect people while they are awake. Differential access to safe neighborhoods with good schools, decent jobs and unbalanced treatment by police and the courts surely have much to do with the stubborn disparities in wealth and well-being among blacks and whites, in particular. Yet it may be just as important to consider what happens when we’re asleep. Race shapes our sleep, a relationship that has surprising roots deep in our national past. African Americans suffer from a “sleep gap”: Fewer black people are able to sleep for the recommended

WASHINGTON — The day before he upended the 2016 election, James B. Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, summoned agents and lawyers to his conference room. They had been debating all day, and it was time for a decision. Mr. Comey’s plan was to tell Congress that the F.B.I. had received new evidence and was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton, the presidential front-runner. The move would violate the policies of an agency that does not reveal its investigations or do anything that may influence an election. But Mr. Comey had declared the case closed, and he believed

Former President Barack Obama on Monday partly blamed the nation´s splintered politics on a media structure that lets people only listen to or read media outlets they agree with, which prevents them from hearing the other side. "Because of changes in the media, we now have a situation in which everybody is listening to people who already agree with them, and are further and further reinforcing their own realities to the neglect of the common reality that allows us to have a healthy debate, and then try to find common ground and actually move solutions forward," Obama said in his

Ex-President Barack Obama is the mystery man of American politics. Given the absence of a viable paper trail, nobody can say for sure who he is. He manifests for us as a figure of multiple identities: a Christian, a Muslim, a secularist, a socialist, a humanist, an intellectual, a man of the people. His lack of definable substance, his inner absence, has been an important political advantage. As Obama himself confessed (or boasted) in The Audacity of Hope, this layering of anonymities enabled him to “serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their

This week’s edition of Time Magazine named former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to its list of the 100 Most Influential People. The list breaks down the chosen 100 into five categories: Pioneers, Artists, Leaders, Titans, and Icons. Kaepernick appears in the Icons group. In the Time Magazine profile, former SF 49ers Coach Jim Harbaugh praised the controversial quarterback’s protest last year of the Star Spangled Banner, “when he boldly and courageously confronted perceived inequalities in our social-justice system by refusing to stand for the national anthem.” Harbaugh made no mention of Kaepernick’s penchant for wearing socks denigrating law

"We´ve had the greatest attack of this democracy since 1941, and we have to understand that," Reiner said on MSNBC. Reiner also suggested that American society might collapse given the pressure Russia placed on democratic institutions in the country.

Former President Barack Obama may not be making an endorsement in France´s upcoming presidential election, but his former deputy national security adviser is warning that a win for right-wing leader Marine Le Pen would be "devastating." "A Le Pen victory would be devastating to any mainstream definition of US interests and values since WWII," Ben Rhodes said in a tweet Saturday. (Tweet) Rhodes´ warning is quite a bit more drastic than the measured statement former President Barack Obama´s spokesman put out last week about his conversation with another French candidate, Emmanuel Macron.
