Syriza and Sanders: "Just Say 'No'" to Neo-liberalism, by Michael Rectenwald | 16 July 2015 | Hopes for Syriza's negotiations with the banking troika in the EU simmered and even boiled over among elements of the left, especially after the vaunted "No" referendum vote suggested that the Greeks would not succumb to another wave of austerity measures but would instead stand firm, even if this meant potentially leaving the EU. We have seen these hopes dashed by the subsequent "negotiations," in which Tsipras seemed to have negotiated backwards, arriving at an agreement that was worse than the one rejected by the Greek voters in the referendum vote...It is in this context, the context of capitalism and its decadent state as acted out on a world scale, that we must consider the candidacy of Bernie Sanders for President of the United States.

Black Woman Found Dead in Texas Cell After Traffic Stop Arrest | 15 July 2015 | Sandra Bland, a 28-year-old black woman from the Chicago suburbs, was found dead under mysterious circumstances in her cell Monday morning following a traffic stop. Police claim Ms. Bland assaulted an officer during the stop, and Bland's family is claiming foul play after the discovery of her body in a Texas cell. Thus far, it appears that Bland, who hails from Naperville, Ill., was in Waller County, Texas to begin a new job.

Welcome to Iceworld: Stunning first hi-def image of Pluto reveals huge 11,000 foot mountains made of water ice and a geologically active surface | 15 July 2015 | The first ever high-resolution image of Pluto has been beamed back to Earth revealing 11,000ft (3,350 metre) mountains made of water ice. The remarkable image, released alongside new pictures of Pluto's moons Charon and Hydra, provides evidence that geological activity is still taking place on the icy world. Scientists were shocked to see mountains as high as those in the Rockies that likely formed 100 million years ago - mere youngsters relative to the 4.56-billion-year age of the solar system. Nasa says they may still be in the process of building.
