    Amnesty's lies about mass executions in Iran during 1988

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/dec/17/russian-propagandists-targeted-african-americans-2016-election The same tactics have been used for years against Iran. People who would otherwise support the IRI have been discouraged from doing so by the sort of propaganda that Amnesty publishes.
  2. Barings Bank, but this is mainly about poor management:

    War Dogs

    There's a movie out with this name that I can't recommend because it had unIslamic scenes. However, the movie is based on the book by the same name and you can get the overall story in other places as well. It's all about the arms dealing the U.S. facilitated in Iraq after the invasion. A summary of the overall story was published in Rolling Stone magazine a few years ago, here's an extract: https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/the-stoner-arms-dealers-how-two-american-kids-became-big-time-weapons-traders-176604/ Reviews of the book are here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/29632229-war-dogs

    Amnesty's lies about mass executions in Iran during 1988

    You'll see an increase in this sort of coverage by the media, the third sector and so on. The White House leadership is pump priming everyone for action against Iran. Some liberals will take a principled stand against this neo-con warmongering. But some liberals have such a strong affinity for human rights and democracy that they will help to legitimise war and the likely deaths of millions of Iranians. The same thing happened before the invasion of Iraq.

    Automation

    Very useful video, looks at the impact of automation on China specifically. This video is part of a series in the UK's very high-quality newspaper the FT. The series is sponsored by the UBS bank but the whole series is actually very good. There's another one which is a teardown of the Tesla vs. competitor cars - very insightful.

    In some eastern countries there are signs for people like you (if I understood your post correctly):

    I think that's more to do with there being a U bend or not, rather than the squattiness of the toilet.

    How does that figure in the equation?

    Automation

    Apparently at one point in the 1960s 6% of all the people who worked, did so as secretaries and then these machines came along:

    I've never managed to get a handle on how to manage western trousers in such a toilet and just find it easier to take them off completely. OTOH the sis who was complaining about abayas etc. I don't get. Because when I was wearing an ihram during hajj, I found it quite easy to just pull it up completely.

    Need help: Nazism and jihadism

    So you could use the Stern Gang as your example of a terror group.
