Our Contribution to the UN is limited by the UN charter to 22% of their funding. With 36% of the world GDP, we are actually significantly underpaying. China is a bigger skinflint with 38% of world GDP and 8% of contribution. The rest of the world however coughs up 70% of the funding from their 26% of world GDP. In terms of contribution of personnel, USA ranks a pathetic 74th with just 74 active military personnel. Ethiopia in contrast is tops, contributing 8,221 personnel.

President Donald Trump again drew a parallel between white supremacists and counter protesters on Thursday, drawing a mild rebuke from South Carolina's Tim Scott, the only black Republican in the Senate who met with Trump to discuss racial issues a day earlier. ... Trump has come under criticism from Republicans as well as Democrats that his repeated assertion that both sides in the demonstrations were worthy of condemnation, rather than emphasizing condemnation for hate groups, confers legitimacy on white supremacists and risks emboldening racist organizations. That included Scott, who said he requested the meeting Wednesday because he was concerned that Trump had compromised his moral authority with his remarks. read more

One victim of Hurricane Harvey was retired teacher Ruben Jordan, 58, who everyone knew as Coach Jordan. "There are about 100,000 people in the town where we live, and Coach Jordan probably knew most of them," Mary Latulippe told NPR's Morning Edition. She worked with Jordan for 30 years at Clear Creek High Schoool. "He was just there. He was just kind of a force of nature," said Jamie Brownson, who knew Jordan for most of her life. They lived in the same neighborhood and he was her teacher and coach. And when she became a teacher at Clear Creek herself, Jordan mentored her. "He just reminded me that we were teaching kids," she said. "We weren't teaching subjects. We weren't teaching science. We weren't teaching math. That if we could remember that we were teaching kids, that it was all about kids -- it was about the relationships -- the rest would will itself out." read more
