About Turn: What’s Really Behind the US’ New Approach to Syria – Sputnik News

Read Russian media in English, reporting how President Trump has changed US policy on Syria. It argues that the US’ top officials have recently announced that the US is changing tactics in Syria and is working on the possible de-confliction of operations in Syria with Russia. Interestingly, Russian media suggested what might be behind the revised US’ policies.

This gives us another insight into President Trump, arguing that he’s escalating the fight against ISIS and trying to stop foreign fighters from returning home.

With so many open questions concerning Trump’s relationship with Russia, it’s fascinating to read Russian media putting him in a more favorable light.


Opinion – Advantage Britain: ruling the education world post-Brexit | THE Comment -The Times Higher Education – John Gelmini

The UK’s state education system (ages 5 to 18), is 44th in the world overall and is about 30th for literacy and numeracy. 1 child in 4 cannot read, cannot write and cannot communicate; we have 1.5 million non job ready NEETS and we are not teaching languages, time management or a “can do ” attitude.

Our teachers in the UK are substandard and are unable to discipline unruly pupils and there are not enough male role models.

Given these problems, it is going to take a generation for the UK to even catch up so the article that Dr Alf has forensically pulled apart is nonsense and has little to do with BREXIT or any related subject.
