Middle East Relationships, Explained Through An Interactive Map Trying to understand the complexities of Middle East politics can seem like an impenetrable task and the tangled and changing relations between governments and groups in the region are a common subject of discussion. What's more, instead of clarifying the chaos, maps or charts that break down the various conflicts and alliances often merely prove how absurdly complex the situation really is. However, one attempt at capturing how the region's many different actors relate to each other has found an impressive way of merging simplification and accuracy. The People Can Defeat the Trans-Pacific Partnership With two blows dealt to the TPP yesterday, the time to end the failed experiment with rigged corporate trade and put in place fair trade for the people and planet before profits, is now. The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) is running into resistance in Congress, local governments and among Pacific nations in Asia and Latin America; and by people who oppose the agreement all over the world. This is part of a growing movement of movements – all of the groups impacted by corporate trade, including labor, environmental, Internet freedom, healthcare, food sovereignty, immigrant’s rights, banking regulation – are joining together to defeat it. Earlier this year the Green Shadow Cabinet issued a series of statements that laid bare the regressive and undemocratic nature of the TPP. Yesterday, the TPP was dealt two blows.

This Tiny House Seems Weird From The Outside, But When You Step Inside? WHOA! - I‘ve seen some truly remarkable pieces of architecture while writing for LittleThings — especially tiny houses. Followers of the Tiny House Movement will be quick to tell you that a small space doesn’t mean a lack of options and possibilities. In fact, some tiny houses can be more impressive than huge mansions. I’ve seen tiny houses in the shape of crosses, boulders, piles of logs, and even Hobbit holes. Recently, I saw photos of a gorgeous tiny house built in a triangle shape so it fits on a peculiarly shaped lot. This Japanese house designed by the brilliant architects at Mizuishi Architects Atelier fits a family of three in a 594-square-foot home on an abnormally shaped property.

The Top Secret Trade Deal You Need to Know About BILL MOYERS: This week on Moyers & Company… TPP: the big story you haven’t heard about. YVES SMITH: There'd be no reason to keep it so secret if it was in the interest of the public. DEAN BAKER: This really is a deal that's being negotiated by corporations for corporations and any benefit it provides to the bulk of the population of this country will be purely incidental. BILL MOYERS: And drone warfare. Deadly fire from the sky. 5 Reasons To Do Planks Every Day Planks are one of those exercises that will never go out of style, and for good reason. When it comes to core workouts, no exercise beats the plank in terms of effectiveness and time (not even crunches). This move challenges the entire body and burns more calories than a traditional crunch. It's also much easier on the back and can help prevent injuries.

The United States is isolated in the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations Here’s another, more quantitative perspective on the Trans Pacific Partnership from Gabriel Michael, a 5th year Ph.D. candidate at George Washington University.

The TPP is a free-trade agreement currently being negotiated between 12 countries: the United States, Canada, Mexico, Peru, Chile, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, Vietnam, and Japan.
