(Global Pulse: October 14, 2009) President Barack Obama's Nobel Peace prize catches the media off guard. But the adjectives quickly start flowing. The war in Afghanistan and the contrast between Mr. Obama and his predecessor, President George W. Bush, fueled the blunt criticism and outright mockery of the Nobel Committee's decision. Is the furor directed at Obama the man, or Obama, the symbol of America?Sources: NTVKenya, Kenya; Russia Today, Russia; Press TV, Iran; Al Jazeera, Qatar; Fox News,...

Honey bees, the essential pollinators of many major US crops, have been dying off in massive numbers since 2006. This threatens the American agricultural system and the one in twelve American jobs that depends on it. There is growing evidence that a new class of pesticides -- nerve toxins called neonicotinoids, which are used on most US crops including almost all corn -- may be toxic to bees. The Environmental Protection Agency allowed neonicotinoids on the market without adequate tests to...

Why shoot a satellite down? You are 1000 times more likely to get hit by lightning than by the toxic fuel in the dead satellite the U.S. shot down last week. Broadcasters worldwide speculated on the real reason - to keep enemies from getting their hands on secret technology; to display our missile prowess; to tweak China, which shot its own satellite down a year ago. China, now repentant, is joining Russia and the UN in a treaty to ban weapons from space, a treaty the Bush administration...

The image I had in my mind on the way to Tiananmen Square was one of tanks and protesters that had been shaped from what I'd seen in the news in 1989. When I arrived at the Square, I was overwhelmed to learn that it's the largest public square in the world, covering an area of 440,000 square meters. Built in 1417 during the Ming Dynasty, Tiananmen Square is where Mao Zedong proclaimed the People's Republic of China in 1949. Unlike the images from the media in 1989, today's Tiananmen Square is...
