It remains unclear what concessions Putin might be prepared to make while he continues to deny Russian involvement


Ukraine conflict: Obama warns Putin ahead of peace talks

BBC
US President Barack Obama has warned President Vladimir Putin that Russia will face greater costs if it continues its "aggressive actions" in Ukraine.
Mr Obama urged his Russian counterpart to seize the opportunity of fresh talks to find a peaceful solution to the war that has raged since April last year. 
Mr Putin is due to meet with the leaders of France, Germany and Ukraine at a summit in Belarus on Wednesday.
However, there was intense fighting in eastern Ukraine ahead of the talks. 
On Tuesday, four soldiers and at least eight civilians were killed in rocket attacks on a key military base and a residential area in Kramatorsk.
Government officials said the rockets were fired from a rebel-held area, but separatists denied being behind the attack.
More than 5,400 people have died since the conflict began and civilian casualties have risen in recent weeks. 
Ukraine and the West accuse Russia of sending troops and arms to support the rebels, but Russia denies this.
The summit in the Belarusian capital Minsk is expected to focus on securing a ceasefire and the withdrawal of heavy weapons, as well as the creation of a demilitarised zone. 
Russian sources said senior officials from the four countries had agreed terms for a ceasefire ahead of the meeting,

Rival agendas at Ukraine talks
Ukraine: Restore government authority over breakaway areas, though Donetsk and Luhansk regions could get greater self-rule; disarm rebel forces; withdrawal of Russian troops; restore Kiev's control over Ukraine-Russia border; full prisoner exchange. 
Pro-Russian rebels: Separation from rest of Ukraine and recognition of "people's republics" of Donetsk and Luhansk; no disarmament of separatist forces; amnesty for separatist leaders.
Russia: Legal guarantees for rights of Russian-speakers in eastern Ukraine; full autonomy for Donetsk and Luhansk in a federal system - not necessarily independence; no return of Crimea to Ukraine; withdrawal of Ukrainian troops from combat zone.
EU and US: Restore Ukraine's territorial integrity; end Russian intervention in eastern Ukraine - withdrawal of all Russian troops and heavy weapons; effective monitoring of Russia-Ukraine border and demilitarised zone between the combatants; full democracy in Donetsk and Luhansk.

The BBC's diplomatic correspondent Bridget Kendall says it remains unclear what concessions President Putin might be prepared to make while he continues to deny Russian involvement.
President Obama phoned Mr Putin on the eve of the talks to reiterate US support for Ukraine, just days after he refused to rule out supplying "lethal defensive weapons" to Kiev if diplomacy fails. 
Russia, however, has warned the West that sending arms to Ukraine would worsen the crisis.
Map of Ukraine rebel-held areas
Fighting on the ground intensified ahead of the talks in Minsk, with both sides attempting to make territorial gains before any possible peace agreement. 
As well as the violence in Kramatorsk, there were also renewed clashes elsewhere in eastern Ukraine. 
Rebels said they had cut off the last supply route for government troops holed up in Debaltseve, a railway hub near the rebel-held city of Donetsk.
Meanwhile, the commander of an ultra-nationalist volunteer group loyal to Kiev said its forces, which are based in Mariupol, were advancing on pro-Russian rebels outside the southern port city.

Ukraine's war: The human cost
  • 5,486 people people killed and 12,972 wounded in eastern Ukraine
  • Fatalities include 298 people on Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 shot down on 17 July 
  • 263 civilians killed in populated areas between 31 January and 5 February
  • 5.2 million people estimated to be living in conflict areas 
  • 978,482 internally displaced people within Ukraine, including 119,832 children
  • 600,000 fled to neighbouring countries, of whom more than 400,000 have gone to Russia

  1. President Obama tackled what was no doubt one of the more daunting items on his to-do list Tuesday when he called up his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, and presented his take on what Putin should do about Ukraine.

    With just a day to go before Putin was set to meet in Minsk, Belarus, with European heads of state, Obama gestured at the potential consequences of Russia’s involvement in the conflict in Ukraine, as CNN reported:

    The White House said Obama underscored to Russian President Vladimir Putin in a phone call “the importance of ... seizing the opportunity presented by the ongoing discussions between Russia, France, Germany and Ukraine to reach a peaceful resolution” to the violence in Eastern Ukraine.

    ... “If Russia continues its aggressive actions in Ukraine, including by sending troops, weapons and financing to support the separatists, the costs for Russia will rise,” Obama told Putin, according to the White House.

    For the moment, Obama has heeded his European allies’ requests by shelving talk of American military aid or action in Ukraine, despite urging to the contrary by Congress.

    Measles Outbreak in Dollars and Cents: It Costs Taxpayers Bigtime

    The official measles count is up to 121 cases in 17 states, the CDC reported on Monday, and 85 percent of those resulted from the outbreak stemming from the Disneyland exposure. That’s more cases than were seen in all of 2012 – and it’s only February.

    Much virtual ink has been spilled in the past several weeks about what an awful disease measles can be, about the impact of irresponsible doctors’ advice, and about the ramifications of not vaccinating on those unable to be vaccinated.

    But only a handful of folks have talked about costs. Measles is expensive. Really expensive. And even if you live in a highly vaccinated area with no outbreaks, a measles case in your state – that’s a third of the U.S. right now – still means health department tax dollars diverted from other programs to deal with a disease that was eliminated from the U.S. in 2000.

    “These outbreaks have economic costs. They are disruptive,” said Gregory Poland, head of the Mayo Clinic's Vaccine Research Group. “The smaller ones have cost a couple hundred dollars in public resources, and one cost nearly a million dollars. It’s on the lesser side – health is more important – but it consumes public health resources that could be applied to the other pressing problems we face.”

    In 2011, the cost of 107 cases spread across 16 outbreaks cost local and state health departments an estimated $2.7 million to $5.3 million. Because measles is so contagious, infecting 90 percent of susceptible individuals and remaining airborne up to two hours after an infectious person has left the area, the number of contacts a single case can generate grows exponentially once an outbreak begins. The cases in 2011 involved contacting somewhere between 8,900 and 17,450 individuals, which required 42,000 to 83,000 personnel hours.

    "Three Muslim college students killed in North Carolina

    Three college students were shot to death in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, on Tuesday night near the University of North Carolina. The three students — a man, his wife and her sister — were Muslim, and may have been targeted because of their faith.

    Police have yet to confirm a motive, but the 46-year-old suspect, who is currently in custody, posted anti-religious remarks on Facebook.

    Craig Stephen Hicks, who has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder, posted several messages and a photo of a gun before the shooting.

    In, a 2013 post, Hicks focused on "anti-theism" and included the message, "Of course I want religion to go away." "

Included in his many Facebook “likes” are the Huffington Post, Rachel Maddow, the Southern Poverty Law Center, Freedom from Religion Foundation, Bill Nye “The Science Guy,” Neil deGrasse Tyson, Gay Marriage groups, and a host of anti-conservative/anti-Tea Party pages.

    Is this a reason that justifies removing the upper limit on FISA taxes?

    The nation’s old-age pension and disability insurance program is funded by a payroll tax that this year applies to wages of $118,500 and below. But the amount of revenue coming in is not as large as it could be, now thatan increasing share of wage growth is going to people who make more than that, and the wages of many Americans are stagnant, or even in decline. That is adding fiscal stress to a program already struggling with the demands of an aging population.

    With more Americans reaching retirement age, Social Security is projected to eat through its funding reserves by 2033, assuming Congress took no action to bolster its finances. If that happened, Social Security trustees have said the program would be taking in only enough money to pay 75 percent of promised benefits—an unthinkable fate for a program that nearly two-thirds of seniors rely on for most of their retirement income.

    “Upward redistribution of income in the United States has meant that income has shifted away from the workers whose full earnings are taxed and toward high-income workers whose additional dollars are exempt,” read the report...

  15. It was a year ago this week that Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook responded to a climate-change heckler at the company's annual shareholder meeting with an impassioned rebuttal in which he famously told investors who care only about profits to "get out of the stock."

    Now Cook is putting his prodigious sums of money where his mouth is, proclaiming the “biggest, boldest and most ambitious project ever,” an $850 million agreement to buy solar power from First Solar, the biggest U.S. developer of solar farms. The deal will supply enough electricity to power all of Apple’s California stores, offices, headquarters and a data center, Cook said Tuesday at the Goldman Sachs technology conference in San Francisco.

    It’s the biggest-ever solar procurement deal for a company that isn't a utility, and it nearly triples Apple’s stake in solar, according to an analysis by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF). “The investment amount is enormous,” said Michel Di Capua, head of North American research at BNEF. “This is a really big deal.”




    The blueprint
    •Cost: $850 million
    •Power: Apple will get 130 megawatts, enough to power 60,000 California homes
    •Location: First Solar’s California Flats Solar Project in Monterey County
    •Contract duration: 25 years
    •Footprint: 2,900 acres (12 square kilometers)
    •Start date: Middle of this year
    •Completion: End of 2016 (in time to take advantage of a 30 percent U.S. tax credit)
    •Profitable? Yes, for both, although Apple and First Solar didn’t disclose the deal's full terms

    The agreement positions the CEO of the world’s biggest company at the center of the global debate about climate change and the future of energy—a role Cook has increasingly embraced over the past two years. The company has been ramping up its investment in solar, with two . . . . . . . .
