With Latin America on the rise, there are many areas for cooperation, and many problems that demand closer ties.
The fallout between the Philippines and Taiwan has been considerable, and recent events demonstrate that the United States ignores the disputes over the small islands in the South China and East China Seas at its peril.
(Washington) -- When the New York Times reported recently that the CIA routinely provides cash payments to Afghan President Hamid Karzai, totaling in the tens...
I hope you will meet us not just as a people struggling with social problems or even ecological catastrophe, but also you will somehow meet the angel of New Orleans in some of us, and that we will somehow also feel the angel of Tibet speaking through you.
The continuing carnage and atrocities sweeping across Syria and the savagery committed against innocent men, women and children defy the most nightmarish dehumanization committed by...
As a global community, our fates are often more intertwined than we like to imagine. Controlling malaria isn't only a prospect of preventing needless deaths, it is an economic imperative.
Food shortages in India are compounded by a lack of cold-chain storage facilities, but a new solar-powered cold storage device, developed by the University of Cincinnati in partnership with industry, could put this problem on ice.
As the lack of trust and discontent continue growing, the citizens are turning their back on the traditional pro-European political parties and supporting others who are against the EU.
A civilized society honors virtue, wisdom, self-restraint, and a search for truth without ulterior motives. It is not preoccupied or awed by technological wizardry, scientific discoveries, limitless wealth, athletic marvels, or weapons of mass destruction.

It is not too late for the Obama administration's Atrocities Prevention Board to take the lead in thwarting mass atrocities. Everyday it fails to act is an invitation to Khartoum, Pyongyang, Damascus and their ilk to step up their assaults on human lives and dignity.
Many in Washington now dismiss further assistance to Libya as useless: the Libyans themselves are fractious and have limited 'absorbtive capacity.' At the same time, it is wrong to say we have no influence in Libya, or that we have no means of increasing that capacity.
We must hardwire the health of the ecosystem directly to the standard measurements of economic health so that the state of the environment is immediately visible in all economic transactions. One possible approach is the introduction of a global "eco-currency."
Andi Arnovitz's "Tender Shreds," at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City, is a powerful exhibition of artworks that combine the artist's unique feminist and Jewish Orthodox viewpoints.
For many frustrated Filipinos, Faulkner's characters perfectly match what they -- have and continue to -- see as a group of vicious, greedy politicians using the language of public service and invoking familial pedigree to woo a largely underprivileged electorate.
Maybe the American audience does not know too much about what is going on in the Argentina media world and never heard about a situation...
Yes, governments must step up. But so should we all. Why shouldn't rape be dinner table conversation? We talk about war, we talk about death, we discuss values with our children. But on the subject of sexual assault, we remain silent and squeamish.
Most Iranians would obviously be strongly opposed to war and the tortoise-paced path to diplomacy with the U.S. is of less concern than living day-to-day in a stagnant economic climate, where food prices become more and more expensive and basic medical needs are not satisfied.
Soccer is emerging as a focal point of dissent in Saudi Arabia, an oil-rich kingdom that despite banning demonstrations by law is struggling to fend off the waves of change sweeping the Middle East and North Africa.
The vast majority of Bangladesh's exports -- 80 percent -- come from its $18 billion garment industry. However, according to the World Bank, Bangladesh ranked last in wages for factory workers worldwide in 2010.
