The recent decision to rule out democratic elections for Hong Kong in 2017 was just the latest example of how Chinese leader Xi Jinping’s transformational reform agenda does not bode well for Hong Kong.
It's been a while since we've had a true 'Apple moment' at one of its press events. Tuesday’s expected introduction of the iPhone 6 (and possibly more) could end that drought.
For the last few years, Apple’s iPhones have been a little like the U.S. role in the war against Muammar Gaddafi in Libya — leading from behind.

There are many new drugs in the pipeline to treat Ebola or vaccinate against it, but they are all in various states of testing.
No job is inherently marginal. Lousy jobs in places like non-union Phoenix are middle-class jobs in unionized New York City.
Skepticism is certainly justified about Europe’s willingness to pull itself out of stagnation.
In the summer of 2012, I spent three weeks in the besieged Syrian town of Qusayr working as a freelance photographer and writer with a group of young anti-Assad activists in a second-floor apartment next door to a field hospital.
I first saw James Foley – whom the Islamic State executed last week -- at a demonstration in Aleppo, a rebel stronghold. He was standing perfectly straight and steadily holding his camera as he filmed a handful of men dancing while drums were pounded and scores of people sang.
