Most people regard tax havens as being relevant only to celebrities, crooks and spivs, and mistakenly believe that the main offshore problems are money laundering and terrorist financing. These are only small parts of the whole picture. The offshore system has been (discreetly) responsible for the greatest-ever shift of wealth from poor to rich. It also undermines our democracies by offering the wealthiest members of society escape routes from tax, financial regulation, and other normal democratic controls.

Kitty Hawk and Beyond: The Wright Brothers and the Early Years of Aviation: A Photographic History

Ronald R. Geibert, Patrick B. Nolan - Kitty Hawk and Beyond: The Wright Brothers and the Early Years of Aviation: A Photographic History
Wright State University Press | 1990 | ISBN: 0929090012 | 177 pages | DJVU | 4.7 MB

Aided by over 100 rarely seen photographs from the Wright brothers' personal collection, the authors tell the story of Wilbur and Orville Wright: how they went from operating a printing shop and bicycle store in Dayton, Ohio, to ushering in the Age of Flight; why Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, was chosen as the site of their initial experiments; and how Orville made the crucial discovery that led to man's first powered, sustained, controlled airplane flight on December 17, 1903. While many books on the Wright brothers end with the historic first flight, "Kitty Hawk and Beyond" goes much further, documenting in eloquent words and rare photographs the important events, post-1903, that frame the Wright Brothers legend.

In January 2010, Aubert de Villaine, the famed proprietor of the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, the tiny, storied vineyard that produces the most expensive, exquisite wines in the world, received an anonymous note threatening the destruction of his priceless vines by poison-a crime that in the world of high-end wine is akin to murder-unless he paid a one million euro ransom.

The awards season is in full swing as this review is being written, with the Golden Globes having just been handed out and the Academy Awards coming up soon on film lovers' dockets. If Steven Spielberg's Lincoln was a surprise shut out at the Globes, taking home only the expected Best Actor trophy for Daniel Day-Lewis, it's expected to do significantly better at the Oscars, where a perhaps less hip crowd may prove to be a more favorable voting demographic. Lincoln has been one of Spielberg's most acclaimed recent films, but let's face it: the director and screenwriter Tony Kushner had a semi-mythic figure to build their film around to begin with. Few Presidents have had had the lasting impact that Lincoln has, and Honest Abe regularly tops polls of the greatest men to ever have held that office…
