As highlighted by the latest edition of the European Drug Report, Estonia is the country with the most drug-induced deaths per million population in Europe. You will find more statistics at Statista At 103 - 82 above the EU average - only Sweden comes close with 100 deaths. However, at the other end of the scale, as Statista's Martin Armstrong points out, Portugal, where drugs were decriminalised back in 2001, had only 6 per million people. Looking outside of Europe,

Authored by Giulio Meotti via The Gatestone Institute, In Islamic symbolism, Córdoba is the lost Caliphate. Political authorities in Córdoba dealt a blow to the Catholic Church's claim of ownership of cathedral by declaring that "religious consecration is not the way to acquire property". But this is how history works, especially in the lands where Christianity and Islam fought hard for dominion. Why are secularists not pressing Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to

Content originally published at iBankCoin.com A battle has erupted between CNN's Jake Tapper and left-wing Muslim activist Linda Sarsour, after Tapper called out the Women's March group co-chaired by Sarsour after tweeting their support for convicted cop-killing domestic terrorist Assata Shakur, who has been ducking American justice in Cuba since 1984. Shakur - aunt of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur, is a member of the far-left Black

Making predictions about future technology is both fun and notoriously difficult. However, as Visual Capitalist's Jeff Desjardins explains, such predictions also serve a very practical purpose for investors and business leaders, since failing to adapt to changing industry paradigms can completely decimate a business venture, turning it into the next Blockbuster, Kodak, or Sears. Today’s infographic from Futurism rounds up some of the most interesting predictions about

A Washington Post/ABC News poll released Sunday put President Trump's six-month approval rating at a historic 70-year low amid controversy over connections between the White House and Russia. Interestingly, as Statista's Niall McCarthy notes, most of Trump's detractors actually dislike him due to his personality and character, rather than specific issues and policy, according to a Gallup poll published late last week.

So what do you do when your John Deere and your entire business revolves around selling really expensive equipment to farmers who have been absolutely decimated financially by low crop prices and can no longer convince commercial banks that they're worthy of additional debt needed to buy fancy new tractors?  Well, you take some plays from the automotive industry, that's what.  Here's how it works: Step 1:  Setup a captive financing arm to underwrite all of the credit risk

Authored by John Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute, RIP George Romero (1940-2017). Romero - a filmmaker hailed as the architect of the zombie genre - is dead at the age of 77, but the zombified police state culture he railed against lives on. Just take a look around you. “We the people” have become the walking dead of the American police state. We’re still plagued by the socio-political evils of cultural apathy, materialism, domestic militarism and racism that Romero

Just when you think you've seen it all, the snowflake capital of the world finds new, creative and amazing ways to shock your system.  In it's latest attempt to do just that, three California counties, two in the Bay Area and one in Southern California, have filed a lawsuit against 37 of the world’s biggest oil and coal companies alleging they're ultimately responsible for the public's usage of fossil fuels and the greenhouse gas emissions they create which will ultimately contribute to

Authored by Mark St.Cyr, Over the last decade there’s been no other subject more debated and central to people’s lives, than the current healthcare debacle making its way through the economy. Since the inception of what is colloquially known as Obamacare, the entire complex that was once the envy of the world seems to now be circling around the edge of some giant sinkhole before it renders itself to the forces of gravity, and finally descends into the abyss, taking everything with

President Donald Trump swept into office in November after promising to protect downtrodden American manufacturers by imposing trade barriers that would make US goods more competitive in the US, and around the world. Yet to the relief of US retailers, Trump has, for now, at least, shelved his threats to impose strict tariffs on Chinese goods – assuming President Xi Jinping follows through with his promise to help the US curb North Korea’s nuclear capabilities. And just

Authored by Michael Snyder via The American Dream blog, Did you know that Mexico is the second deadliest nation on the entire planet? The drug war down there continues to spiral completely out of control, and often the violence spills over to our own side of the border.

Ultimately what we need is a physical barrier, because large numbers of illegal immigrants continue to pour through the

The idea that all endeavors can be distilled down to statistics has put us in the Over-Quantification Box. Correspondent Chad D. recently submitted a thought-provoking commentary on the Over-Quantification of Life:"I think you could constructively explore the over-QUANTIFICATION of the US. Or we could call it the Wal-Martization of the US. The only that that counts is a number (i.e. price, sales, clients, patients, tickets, arrests, convictions, fines, sex partners, scores, averages, etc.).What is missing is quality. I think you've mentioned something similar before talking about junk products with a short lifespan, but this way of doing things pervades our society.I would argue that in nearly every area of society, quantity rather than quality rules the day.
