  • A new paper from the Center on International Cooperation at NYU: 'The UN and Security Sector Reform in Timor-Leste'. An Interperter post by Jim Della-Giacoma is cited in the footnotes.
  • What he said: David Penberthy is right. Peter Garrett's new stand on uranium doesn't make him a hypocrite, it just means he changed his mind. The Libs should be congratulating Garrett for growing up, not bagging him.
  • Also on nuclear power, Larvatus Prodeo takes apart a very flaky Age op-ed on the subject.
  • Twenty bold schemes that could save the world.
  • 'Is the Holocaust relevant to our strategic thought in an era of a nuclear Middle East?' Not a bad question to ask Israel's national security adviser (h/t Total Wonkerr).
  • Technology Review's blog page has links to a dozen separate in-house blogs. Go crazy.
  • Pretty sure I've mentioned it before, but The Browser is good for a daily scan of what's worth reading.
  • Is this the creepiest picture ever of an American first lady?
  • This video is apparently popular in Russia at the moment. Looks like CGI to me, though of a high quality.
