The UAE’s strength today lies in the decentralisation and diversification of economic activities. Abu Dhabi’s oil-based economy has enabled it to keep the union together, support other emirates’ development plans and launch its own ambitious vision to shift into non-oil economic activities.

PJ Media » ‘Change’ and Marxism

 

Occupy Wall Street is an un-American movement generated by an un-American depiction of our country. In 2008, the leaders of the Democratic Party painted the United States as a “decaying, racist, capitalist realm,” unable to provide medical care for the poor, to rebuild her “crumbling schools,” or to replace the “shuttered mills that once provided a decent life for men and women of every race.”

A young generation of Americans, who had never been taught real history in school, became galvanized by the Democratic Party’s pledge to “change” that rotting America. Some eighty thousand of them gathered in front of the now famous pseudo-Greek temple resembling the White House that had been erected in Denver, shouting for “hope and change.”

Of course, people everywhere want their political leaders to be better than their predecessors. But “change” is also the quintessence of Marxism, which is built on the dialectical materialist tenet that quantitative changes generate qualitative transformations.

In my other life, when I was national security adviser to Communist Romania’s President Nicolae Ceausescu, I wrote the lyrics of his ode to “change.” Ceausescu pretended that his predecessor had devastated the country, and he pledged to change that change. In those days I heard that ode to change%2

Google Maps To Charge Some Businesses For Using Service

 

Google Maps To Charge Some Businesses For Using Service

 

Starting in January, Google will begin charging businesses for using the Google Maps link on their websites.

According to Apple Insider, the company says the charge will only affect .35% of users as websites won’t be charged until they get 25,000 Google Maps clicks in one 24-hour period. After they’ve reached this quota, businesses will be charged $4 per 1,000 clicks according to BBC News.

BBC News also reports that Thor Mitchell, product manager of the Maps API at Google, said that Google is aware that these changes may be "concerning" to businesses who rely on Google Maps, but that they are necessary in order to "secure its long-term future by ensuring that even when used by the highest-volume for-profit sites, the service remains viable."

Apple Insider writes that Apple is one of the companies that relies heavily on Google to provide mapping information for their devices. The iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad all use Google’s Street View content in their native mapping applications. However, Apple may be getting out of the Google Maps game for good in the not too distant future. Apple Insider dishes that Apple is reportedly working on their own mapping application.
