Occupy protests, twelve lessons, and the Nobel Peace Prize

"Sure, the nation’s economy is ailing. But in corporate America today, you can be sure of this: There may not be money for new workers, there may not even be money to keep workers, but there is always money for two things: bonuses for executives and funding for political candidates and causes. And why is there plenty of political money? What, you think it's a coincidence you're eating poison cantaloupe? Or that Wall Street got bailed out but your line of credit got canceled? Or that a company wants to build a pipeline through a precious aquifer?"

* This year's Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded jointly to three women - Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Liberian Leymah Gbowee and Tawakul Karman of Yemen. They were recognised for their 'non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women's rights to full participation in peace-building work.'"
* Ten years in Afghanistan, so, now what? Also, how the Taliban survived and staged a comeback.
* Brilliant. Democrats in the House almost trick Republicans into... passing their own ultra-conservative budget.
* Why the path of the tea party proves there's a future for the Occupy Wall Street protesters.
* Campaign trail: Romney calls for... expanding the military? Perry stays to the far right.
* One of the ways the CIA tracked down bin Laden? A fake vaccination campaign in Pakistan.
* Hollywood remains a fan of author Richard Matheson.
* Interesting read: twelve lessons learned from Steve Jobs.
