By very conservative estimates, Turkish repression of Kurds in the 1990s falls in the category of Kosovo.

An index is a great leveller.
George Bernard Shaw
The true index of a man's character is the health of his wife.

The Adversity Index was created by msnbc.com and Moody's Analytics to track the economic fortunes of states and metro areas.

With Internet technology you can capture a photo, a quote, or an article, store it locally and upload it into the Net more than once, if you wish, to multiple sites. Can you imagine then forcing the search engines to somehow not index that information?
After costs, only the top 3% of managers produce a return that indicates they have sufficient skill to just cover their costs, which means that going forward, and despite extraordinary past returns, even the top performers are expected to be only as good as a low-cost passive index fund. The other 97% can be expected to do worse.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
