    Why Obama loves the queen more than her country

    LONDON – At their Friday press conference here, President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron together used the phrase “special relationship” more than a dozen times.

    Faster media, fractured government

    Ever since Julius Reuter strapped his first market report to a carrier pigeon, reporters of every stripe have lived or died by being first with the facts. Yet in recent years, the news agenda has started to move even more rapidly, to the point where it is whirling faster than ever — part of a wider speeding up of society, driven by technology,...

    Europa ist für die meisten Georgier ein Gefühl, ein Wohlstandstraum, ein Spaziergang durch das hübsch frisierte Touristenviertel von Tiflis. Kaum abseits der Bars und Boutiquen aber wird das Leben karg, Kinder schnorren Zigaretten, Familien leben in halbfertigen Hochhäusern.
