Why More Global Corporations Are Betting on Renewables
Facebook recently heralded that it will source 100 percent of its electricity consumption from renewables by 2020, representing the latest direct renewables purchase by a major global corporation. The social media site joins Apple and Google, which already power all their operations using renewable electricity. But while Silicon Valley's giants are clearly among the leaders in embracing green electricity, other industrial and commercial segments are not far behind. The materials segment, including metals, is the largest consumer of directly sourced renewable electricity. For instance, metals giant Alcoa sources 75 percent of the energy required for its smelters from renewables, while mining giant Rio Tinto acquires just under half of its energy from such sources. In telecommunications, AT&T and T-Mobile are pursuing aggressive renewables plans, and there are others on the cutting edge in retail, including Wal-Mart, Ikea, Nike and Starbucks. Volkswagen, in turn, leads the way for renewables in manufacturing

Left Behind in the Brexit Capital?
The swing away from liberalization and globalization and toward protectionism and nationalism is probably the biggest political earthquake of recent times in wealthy Western countries, and explaining it is probably the biggest intellectual challenge. Until we understand its causes, after all, we cannot address them. Theories abound, but the most popular explanation for the shift seems to be that though globalization has lifted more than a billion people out of extreme poverty in the last 20 years and created a new global elite, it has done little or nothing for the working and middle classes in rich countries. Not only left behind by the boom but also seeing others prosper, tens of millions of angry voters -- mostly white, mostly less educated and often past their prime -- are ready to support anyone who stands against the status quo and offers radical change. But is this really what's happening?

Why China's Ban on Golf Is Par for the Course
Of the most abused (and, at times, inaccurate) sports cliches, the one extolling the unifying power of competition has to be near the top of the list. Never mind parental brawls at Little League games or the 1969 "Football War" between El Salvador and Honduras, do sports not bring us together? Cynicism aside, the bouncing ball does occasionally lead to pivotal geopolitical moments. One of the shining examples of sports bridging a gap between countries came in the early 1970s, when international table tennis tours facilitated a thaw in relations between China and the United States. During Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to the United States in early April, another sport played with a little white ball moved to the fore. When he met with U.S. President Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, it was hard to ignore the legacy of sporting diplomacy between the two countries. However, beyond

Modern technology may have changed the surveillance process, but it has not eliminated the need for physical pre-operational surveillance.
Surveillance in the Information Age
Those who conduct surveillance -- either for nefarious or protective security reasons -- frequently have used available technology to aid them in their efforts. In earlier times, employing such technology might have meant simply using a telescope, but in more recent years, surveillants have used photographic and video gear, night vision aids and electronic equipment such as covert listening devices, beacons and programmable scanners. These efforts have been greatly enhanced by the advent of personal computers, which can be used to database and analyze information, and the Internet, which has revolutionized information gathering.

The Failure of Jihadism in Southeast Asia
A few Islamist militants in Southeast Asia might rebrand themselves with the Islamic State label, but the type of Islam that took root in the region is not conducive to radical action. Additionally, cultural factors have created a population that finds jihadism unappealing and is far more likely to side with security forces than to provide support or protection for terrorist groups.

Terrorism Returns to Indonesia's Capital
Terrorism Returns to Indonesia's Capital
A coordinated attack is believed to be underway in Indonesia's capital city, Jakarta. At least seven explosions were reported in the downtown area along with multiple exchanges of fire. Eyewitness reports and unconfirmed sources indicate that at least one suicide bomber may have been involved. Two of the blast sites were located near a police kiosk and a Starbucks coffee shop in Sarinah Thamrin plaza. The attack was likely timed to hit busy lunchtime traffic and was centered on intersection of Wahid Hasyim street and Medan Merdeka, close to Jakarta's high security area.

The Uncertainty Surrounding China's 'Jasmine' Protests
Though recent anti-government gatherings in China were small, and though it is not clear where they originated, they represent a cross-regional organization and broad political message that will worry Chinese authorities.
