Opinion – US pullout from Iran deal could mean war: France – Press TV

Here’s a powerful video clip, citing France’s President Macron warning of war if the US pulls out of the Iran deal. Macron has exerted France’s full foreign policy muscle on this issue. Meanwhile, Theresa May and Boris Johnson highlight how the UK is under-weight since the Brexit decision.¬†

Incidently, Press TV is a 24-hour English and French languages news and documentary network, affiliated with Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting.

Although I do not always agree with Donald Trump, he’s right about the Iran deal and Iran’s wider foreign policy aspirations.

Surely, it’s time to face the truth and do what history will judge to be right?

Opinion – How Millennials today compare with their grandparents 50 years ago – Pew Research

This is an excellent piece of research by Pew. However, I would like to make a few observations. The quality of education has changed from millenials‘ grandparents’ day. I would argue that the quality of a bachelor degree has been diluted over the years. Sadly, a bachelor degree is worth more from an elitist ivy league school than a state college. Also consider standards of basic numeracy and English? Can today’s millennial graduates spell without the aid of a spell-check? In fifty years, there has been enormous improvement in education but in the developed world large quality challenges have become pervasive. Quality standards vary enormously – consider France or the UK, not just the US? There’s also the education establishment with their bureaucracy¬† and unions, who are often putting their own interests before their students – their customers/clients in the wider world. No, it’s time for service quality standards to reach education. Thoughts?
