    The ICJ gives peace a chance

    News, Published on 13/11/2013

    » The International Court of Justice (ICJ) got a rare second chance this week to revisit one of its past major rulings. Judges reviewed their 1962 verdict on the Preah Vihear temple, and for the second time, their answer settled one question while failing to clarify one of the single most irritating disagreements between Cambodia and Thailand.

    Central banks face uncertain future

    News, Published on 13/11/2013

    » History is full of people and institutions that rose to positions of supremacy only to come crashing down. In most cases, hubris _ a sense of invincibility fed by uncontested power _ was their undoing. In other cases, however, both the rise and the fall stemmed more from the unwarranted expectations of those around them.

    ICJ sets down Preah Vihear ground rules

    News, Vitit Muntarbhorn, Published on 13/11/2013

    » The ruling of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on Monday was both historic and momentous for many reasons.

    Backwards or forwards?

    Life, James Hein, Published on 13/11/2013

    » Why do software makers not bother to check with users to see if their latest upgrade is an improvement or a step backwards? In this case it is Visio 13. I've found a 770-point version of the good old Colossal Cave (or Adventure), a text-based interactive fiction game we used to play way back in the day. I was using Vision to make a map and when I used Visio 13 I could no longer easily make the connectors work as I wanted. This is not the only time I have had problems with new versions of Microsoft products trying to help me way past the point where I want any. I'm sure there is a setting somewhere buried deep under the Options Menu that will stop the behaviour I don't want, but it shouldn't be that hard. Perhaps a simple "make all options as per version 2010" would be the answer.
