It really gives you insight on who really works for minimum wage, people who have families and are struggling to get by. With the minI mum wage low, it's hard for people to get through life in today's economy
Ahmed Wali Karzai, brother of the Afghan President Hamid Karzai, is assassinated by a close security guard and member of the family. The Taliban claimed responsibility and the Pakistanis have reasons to rejoice.
"Tuesday morning, AWK was in a meeting in his home with Afghan elders. AWK held similar meetings almost every day. Afghan sources say that Mohammad entered the meeting. Mohammad said he had an urgent matter that he needed to discuss with AWK. The implication was that it was a personal issue that couldn’t be discussed in front of the others in the room. Mohammad said he needed to talk to AWK for “just two minutes” and asked if AWK could excuse himself so they could talk. Very few people would have been able to walk into a meeting with AWK, interrupt it, and ask him to break away for a few minutes. Only a trusted few had that kind of clout. Mohammad was one of them. Mohammad was also carrying a file in his hands. The assassin’s gun was apparently hidden in or behind the file. AWK excused himself from his meeting. The two men walked into a nearby room. Once inside, Mohammad pulled out his gun and shot AWK in the head and chest."

Bean and Zappos, are all eager to disrupt their corners of the world by putting people--not technology--first.

Russians replaced half of their corrupt parliament with 30% old style communists and 20% brown-red nationalists... And some call this progress... This excellent The Economist analysis say it as it is: Russia is stuck between the past and the present, its only belief being money, power, and bureaucracy.
"In particular, the intelligentsia—the engine of Soviet collapse—was caught unprepared. When their “hopeless cause” became reality, it quickly transpired that the country lacked a responsible elite able and willing to create new institutions. The Soviet past and its institutions were never properly examined; instead, everything Soviet became a subject of ridicule. The very word “Soviet” was shortened to sovok, which in Russian means “dustpan”. In fact, says Mr Gudkov of Levada, this self-mockery was not a reasoned rejection of the Soviet system; it was playful and flippant. Sidelined by years of state paternalism and excluded from politics, most people did not want to take responsibility for the country’s affairs."
