Rocket science: Ukraine firm may have helped N. Korean missiles

Ukraine is virtually an “anything goes” zone for American entrepreneurs — as well as for people like the North Koreans. That idea has been reinforced by news reports that a Ukrainian factory sold North Korea rocket engines for intercontinental ballistic missiles, which Pyongyang wants to arm with nuclear warheads so it can threaten the United States as well as peace in its region.

    WASHINGTON — At this shank end of a summer that a calmer America someday will remember with embarrassment, you must remember this: In the population of 325 million, a small sliver crouches on the wilder shores of politics, another sliver lives in the dark forest of mental disorder, and there is a substantial overlap between these slivers. At most moments, 312 million are not listening to excitable broadcasters making mountains of significance out of molehills of political effluvia.

    I’ve sent letters, webposts, texts and emails to the mayor, DWS/water board, while having two conversations with engineering. They seemed well-meaning, willing to listen and anxious to apply my suggestions. And then the pump crashed, a pump in inventory was unusable and the mayor found no one at fault. It’s time to pump a little engineering clarity into the situation.

    For much of this decade, Americans have debated how college administrators should handle allegations of campus sexual assaults. How to balance the rights of the victim and the accused. How to punish perpetrators and deter predators. How to make campuses safer.

    WASHINGTON — In his prescient science-fiction novel “The Diamond Age,” Neal Stephenson describes a post-national world in which people organize themselves into affinity groups called “phyles.” Some choose to be Victorians, emulating the beliefs and aesthetic of 19th-century Britain. Others identify with the values and dress of the Boers. The Celestial Kingdom is a Chinese culture phyle. In “The Diamond Age,” globalization has erased the nation-state and left people — always hungry for belonging — to identify themselves entirely by culture.

    Twenty years ago, the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft began its 4.9 billion-mile odyssey to Saturn with a picture-perfect liftoff. The $3.9 billion mission — a three-way collaboration among NASA, the Italian Space Agency and the European Space Agency — was ambitious by the standards of any age. Saturn, with its dozens of moons that have fascinated astronomers since the 17th century, was ready for a nearly two-decadelong close-up.

    Violence has always been with us. Lions kill gazelles; Cain killed Abel. Israelites killed the Canaanites and the Romans threw Christians to the lions. The Roman Circus was as violent as video games, with real blood. Hitler murdered Jews and Stalin murdered Ukrainians. Pol Pot murdered 80 percent of his own population and Hutus with machetes murdered Tutsis.

    President Donald Trump made a daring move on Wednesday, mapping out the beginnings of a deal with Democratic minority leaders to save “Dreamers,” the young immigrants who were given temporary protections from DACA, the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals. That is a positive, compassionate move that should bring support from those who have worked hard to protect the 800,000 people who now live in daily fear of deportation from the only homeland they remember.
