Why You Should Be Happy About China ’s Historic Moon Landing
There is a perfectly wonderful map on a playful Facebook cartography page. It shows all of the countries in the world, with a two-color key underneath. Red indicates “countries with moon on the flag.” There are thirteen of them. Blue indicates “countries with flag on the moon.” There is only one: the United States. It’s hard not to get a patriotic thrill from that—even if it was never technically true. The U.S. is certainly the first—and so far the only—country whose flags on the moon were planted by human hands. But the Soviet Union was the first to get its emblem onto the l...

Medtronic Scolded for Calling Taiwan a Country
Chinese authorities don't take kindly to businesses calling Taiwan a country, as Medtronic now knows. The company was chastised Friday along with Delta Air Lines and fashion brand Zara, for making such a reference on its website. Chinese regulators forced the firms to formally apologize, but it could have been worse.

China claims Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, and Tibet as territories. The issue serves as a warni...

As Hurricane Irma Lashes Florida, an Expert Explains How Cities Can Boost Their Flood Defenses
After it had raged through the Caribbean, sucked the sea back from the Bahamas coast and devastated the tiny island of Barbuda, Hurricane Irma tore up the Florida panhandle Sunday night cutting power for four million people en route to Tampa.
