The fascinating story of explorer who became
the first white man to meet spear-wielding New
Guinea tribe, as his great-great-grandson
returns 150 years later to meet locals*

When a bold Russian explorer arrived with two servants on the rugged coast of New Guinea in 1871, the tribe he encountered had never met a white man before. The feared people inhabiting the world´s second-largest island, in the southwestern Pacific, had a fierce reputation as headhunters and cannibals and Nickolay Miklouho-Maclay’s life was very much in danger as he stepped ashore. But - as he explained in his diary - his ´defenselessness´ was his safety. Miklouho-Maclay showed no aggression towards the Papuans and in return, they decided to let him live. The handsome 25-year-old had endured a gruelling 10-month

*named after his ancestor

Not our usual fare but the fascination of it shouldn´t be missed. The wonderful old drawings and photographs are treasures--and so are the well-done photos of today. It´s society and politics after all.

Melania says she wants the president

First lady Melania Trump appeared on Sunday to break with the Trump administration´s ´zero tolerance´ policy on illegal immigrant children crossing into the United States with adult family members. The debate over the policy has focused on approximately 2,000 children who have been separated from their parents or adult guardians and transported to either government facilities or foster care. Resulting photos of the circumstances under which some of the minors are being housed have driven Democrats to decry the situation as ´heartless´ and ´immoral´ – and to call for the use of discretion that would The first lady´s spokeswoman Stephanie

President Donald Trump slammed Amazon chief Jeff Bezos yet again in his war against the billionaire businessman and advised Washington Post staff to go on strike. Bezos has been a repeated targeted of the president´s wrath as has the Post, which has published multiple stories critical of Trump that he has dismissed as ´fake news.´ ´Washington Post employees want to go on strike because Bezos isn´t paying them enough,´ Trump wrote Sunday morning. ´I think a really long strike would be a great idea.

Resisting Robert De Niro

We wrote earlier that if Robert De Niro is what’s playing on Broadway, there is real concern for the safety of our president. Words send messages and surely there are people out there just as crazy as he is, and crazed enough to think they’ve been given a message to act words for deeds. De Niro’s profanity-laced rant against Trump at the Tony awards did more than stink up the joint – the joint gave him a standing ovation. That is still making headlines. Some nut out there could interpret the applause and the headlines as a shortcut to fame and wipe the grin

He died a hero in a foreign field, shot down in the skies over war-torn Korea more than 60 years ago, but with nothing to mark his grave. So when the North Korean dictatorship agreed to give up the remains of decorated RAF fighter pilot Flight Lieutenant Desmond Hinton, it looked as if he was heading home at last. Desmond´s brother David had spent years trying to persuade Pyongyang to hand over the remains for proper burial after locating a grave site near the capital in 2004. In 2011, a casket was passed with great ceremony to the then British

The White House called MSNBC´s Joe Scarborough´s comments comparing the actions of immigration law enforcement officers at US border crossings to those of Nazis ´appalling´ on Friday. Scarborough pointed out while hosting ´Morning Joe´ on Friday that federal agents at US borders have reportedly used tactics similar to those used by Nazi soldiers during World War II to separate Jewish families, in saying children are being taken to ´shower´ and never returning with them. ´This is the type of inflammatory and unacceptable rhetoric that puts a target on the backs of our great law enforcement,´ White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley

The shocking truth behind ´white flight´:

A mammoth relocation of Anglo Australians out of Sydney´s western suburbs in favour of a growing ethnic population could have catastrophic future implications, according to experts. Census statistics revealed low-income migrants flocked to affordable housing areas, while white Australians made up the majority of families who had moved away. Two-thirds of the 266,000 arrivals in Sydney´s west in the five years leading to 2016 were not born in Australia and did not have Anglo heritage, The Weekend Australian reported. In the same period, 63 per cent of the 183,000 people who left the area were born in Australia and an

Former first lady Laura Bush tore into the Trump administration for separating migrant families at the border, calling the “zero tolerance” policy “cruel” and “immoral.” Bush penned an op-ed for the Washington Post, which was published Sunday night as public outcry over the hundreds of children in detention centers intensified. “I live in a border state,” Bush wrote. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Bush’s commentary comes as more images and accounts from inside the detention centers have

The state of Illinois has approved $224 million to pay for street and transportation projects in Chicago´s South Side neighborhood around the Obama Presidential Center site, $199 million of which will fall directly on the shoulders of Illinois taxpayers. Gov. Bruce Rauner signed into law the legislature´s budget on June 4, which included $174 million for road work in and around Jackson Park — where the 235-foot-tall building would be located — and another $50 million to renovate an above-ground rail stop two miles away. “Bringing the Obama Presidential Center to Chicago took leadership and vision, and we are gratified that our

Christian leaders across the country have taken issue with Attorney General Jeff Session´s usage of the Bible as justification of his policy that is separating thousand of immigrant families at the border. Sessions cited Romans 13 to attempt to justify how separating families was ordained by God because ´orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful.´ For religious leaders who still weren´t pleased with his usage of scripture, he offered them to ´speak up strongly to urge anyone who would come here to apply lawfully, to wait their turn and not violate the law.´

Most of what happens inside Apple Park, the iPhone company´s stunning new headquarters, is top secret. But Apple CEO Tim Cook recently disclosed one new detail about the work environment: Everyone gets a standing desk. "We have given all of our employees, 100%, standing desks. If you can stand for a while, then sit, and so on and so forth, it´s much better for your lifestyle," Cook said in a recent interview with The Carlyle Group´s David Rubenstein published on Wednesday. He then encouraged the billionaire financier to stand with him — just like a prominent feature on the Apple Watch. Cook has previously cited

Tesla CEO and PayPal billionaire Elon Musk surprised many Friday when he declared on Twitter that he is a socialist. Conservative critics, however, may well have agreed, given his companies’ reliance on the state. Musk tweeted his declaration Friday after first tweeting that socialists have no sense of humor: (Tweet) When challenged to define his own ideology, however, Musk said he was a “socialist”: (Tweets) Musk then responded to the latter tweet by declaring: (Tweets) Left-wing critics on Twitter weren’t having it: (Tweets) Conservatives have often criticized Musk in the past for relying heavily on government for his companies’
