Beyond The Latte Curtain

BY BRUCE MANCLARK
@ VOL 1 ON JUL 28, 2014

Just like most places, the Pacific Northwest gets divided up politically. Normally in the NW we talk about the rain curtain as the division between the westside and the eastside. More apt than either politics or climate is the Latte Curtain which marks the true cultural dividing line between east and west. More about Politics, Energy, and Coffee Drinks.

Informed Voter Project

BY VIVEK GILANI
@ VOL 5 ON SEP 20, 2018

The Indian National Elections will be held in February or March 2019. This will be a momentous election for the largest democracy in the world, poised to select the pathways towards a inclusive, equitable development not only for its own peoples but also one that will determine the trajectory of critical global issues such as climate change, sustainable development goals of the UN etc. for the next 5 years. My organization is preparing to establish a Informed Voting Service (providing detailed, objectively analyzed information about candidates) to enhance the 'quality' of the election so that citizens of India vote based on information and look beyond rumors, biased opinions cultivated by mass media, and religious/caste identity.
