What ISIS Really Wants. What is the Islamic State?

What ISIS Really Wants

Where did it come from, and what are its intentions? The simplicity of these questions can be deceiving, and few Western leaders seem to know the answers. In December, The New York Times published confidential comments by Major General Michael K. Nagata, the Special Operations commander for the United States in the Middle East, admitting that he had hardly begun figuring out the Islamic State’s appeal. “We have not defeated the idea,” he said. The group seized Mosul, Iraq, last June, and already rules an area larger than the United Kingdom. Our ignorance of the Islamic State is in some ways understandable: It is a hermit kingdom; few have gone there and returned. The Islamic State, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), follows a distinctive variety of Islam whose beliefs about the path to the Day of Judgment matter to its strategy, and can help the West know its enemy and predict its behavior.

Back To The Future? We’re Already There.

We’re Already There. “Drivers? Where we’re going we don’t need drivers.” That’s what Doc Brown should have said. But instead, he uttered the now famous line about flying cars not needing roads. This Wednesday October 21st, 2015 marks the date featured as the future in the 1989 film Back to the Future Part II, and I’ve been waiting for this since I was 10 years old.

Think back to the world of 1985–89, when the trilogy began and these films were imagined. In that context, the job of the creative team behind the film was extremely challenging. What they got right. Anything that relied on the digitization of information or general computing power. Anything that relied on human nature. What they got wrong. Almost anything that relied on the continuation of existingtechnological paradigms. Anything with no basis in 1989's emerging technology. Accounting for Developers 101.

In the mid-nineteen-seventies, when Christopher Doyon was a child in rural Maine, he spent hours chatting with strangers on CB radio.

His handle was Big Red, for his hair. Transmitters lined the walls of his bedroom, and he persuaded his father to attach two directional antennas to the roof of their house. CB radio was associated primarily with truck drivers, but Doyon and others used it to form the sort of virtual community that later appeared on the Internet, with self-selected nicknames, inside jokes, and an earnest desire to effect change. Deployment. The Idea Machine. 10 главных выводов, которые я сделал за Год Изучения Продуктивности. Предисловие переводчика: В мире написано столько книг по личной эффективности и тайм-менеджменту, что берясь за этот перевод я безусловно задавал себе вопрос: «А есть ли здесь вообще что-то новое, ради чего эту статью стоит переводить, и главное читать»?

10 главных выводов, которые я сделал за Год Изучения Продуктивности

Сначала мне казалось, что я ответил на этот вопрос «да», однако реальность оказалась несколько сложнее. Сейчас я думаю, что сказать что-то новое человеку, который прочитал хотя бы 2-3 книги по тайм-менеджменту и личной эффективности практически невозможно. Однако существует огромная пропасть между тему, что люди знают, и тем, что люди делают. Поэтому если у вас уже есть какой-то багаж знаний по личной эффективности, я советую вместо вопроса «это что-то, чего я не знаю?» Задавать другие вопросы: 1.
