    A former chief economic adviser to Vladimir Putin has said the barbaric invasion of Ukraine could be stopped in a month if the West imposed a 'real embargo' on Russian energy. Dr Andrei Illarionov said the Kremlin 'did not take seriously' Europe's threats to reduce energy usage while continuing to buy Russian oil and gas. Oil and gas revenues last year made up 36 per cent of Russia's government spending, meaning an embargo would seriously hamper Kremlin finances. Dr Andrei Illarionov said the Kremlin 'did not take seriously' Europe's threats to reduce energy usage while continuing to buy Russian oil and gas The EU currently imports 40 per cent of its gas and 27 per cent of its oil from Russia. Dr Illarionov told the BBC if the West 'would try to implement a real embargo on oil and gas exports from Russia...

    MOSCOW—It’s easy to see why President Vladimir Putin might have thought ratcheting up tensions on Ukraine’s border and blaming it all on NATO and the U.S. would rally his faltering support back home, but this time something different is happening. Most Russians aren’t buying it. Domestic propaganda levels have reached near-hysteria this year after anti-Putin protests swept the country following the attempted murder and imprisonment of opposition leader Alexei Navalny. The drumbeat of war against Ukraine is becoming louder by the week and Putin has made ever wilder demands of NATO, which was the primary focus of his talking points in the video conference summit with President Biden earlier this month. He must surely know those demands can never be met. If you follow the local—state-owned—TV stations in Russia, you are constantly warned that a new war is on the horizon; that Russia will bravely stand up to the West; and that America is the real enemy. That message is increasingly falling on deaf ears. A study published this week by the Levada Analytical Center showed that for the...

    Most people present the best version of themselves on social media, which may involve a bit of creative licence, but some take it a step too far to try to grab attention online with tales that stretch the boundaries of credibility.  Myhealthgazette.com has rounded up some of the funnisest examples from around the world, detailing acts of heroism, profound encounters with strangers and displays of talent so incredible that it's hard to believe they really happened.  A common theme is students who claim that they questioned the teacher who allowed them to take over and teach the class, resulting in rapt attention from fellow pupils and full marks all around on the next exam. Another is proud parents who claim that their very young child has pulled off a magnificent act of bravery or cunning, including one who said their four-year-old faked a toilet emergency to get them out of a speeding ticket.  Elsewhere, a Facebook user got a short shrift for claiming he'd been writing to his pen pal for 30 years without realising they lived next door to...
    “The food industry stopped at taste for too long,” says Sara Brito, co-founder and president of the Good Food Media Network. She believes that every bite of food is a product of an interconnected system: While taste is important, the land, plants and animals, farmers and fishermen, purveyors, chefs and restaurant workers must also be compensated and considered. Brito hopes to support this shift in perspective through the nonprofit’s annual Good Food 100 Restaurants List and Industry Impact Report. The 2020 list, released on September 21, seeks to make the purchasing practices of participating chefs and restaurants transparent and recognizes their commitment to buying good food and sourcing sustainably. This year, 131 restaurants from around the country participated, and 38 of them are located in Colorado. The list will be a platform for conversation during the Good Food Media Network’s virtual seminar series: Eat.Drink.Think. “It’s really hard to live by your ideals as a chef,” Brito explains, pointing to how COVID-19 has demonstrated just how tight restaurant margins are. Those that “maintain that dedication, both in terms of time and...
