No Western European city ranks among the top ten "most dynamic cities. And what are currently the most competitive countries in terms of industrial production, and what will they be in the future?

China, India and Brazil are also stunning the world with their impressive performance in many areas, including research and technology.

The most expensive private residence in the world, owned by entrepreneur Mukesh Ambani, is in the Indian city of Mumbai. Anyone who drives a Jaguar or a Land Rover is driving a car made by an Indian company, now that Tata Motors has bought the traditional British automaker.

At the same time, the economic recovery is flagging. Ironically, the emerging nations have begun to see a considerable weakening of their economies in recent months, just as they pull ahead of the West.
Losing the War. Man is a bubble, and all the world is a stormJeremy Taylor, Holy Dying () My father owned a gorgeous porcelain tiger about half the size of a house cat. There are some truths that I strive to preach, for lack of a better word, in today's information-culture wars propagated in our corrupt mainstream media. By Lt Daniel Furseth. Today, I stopped caring about my fellow man. I stopped caring about my community, my neighbors, and those I serve.
