More Anti-Terrorism Laws: Left-wing, right-wing, it makes no difference.

Last week, the French government passed a new bill th...
Meet a 2015er: Miroslav Polzer: “We should have local communities organize themselves and mobilize resources for their interests and the global community should provide additional funding for those local projects that are relevant to these SDGs.

American Military History, A Tale of Two Generals: The Hero of Gettysburg G.K.
