Why Lifting the Blockade Won't Help Gaza

Israel\'s decision to allow more goods into Gaza will ease its isolation. But it won't substantially help Gaza. Gaza\'s economy has been smothered not by the import ban but by an export ban that Israelis are not offering to lift.

Force of Nature

It seems like a hippie entrepreneur's dream come true: an ecostore with cash registers powered by rooftop wind turbines, skylights instead of light bulbs and photovoltaic solar cells on the roof to help power the bakery's oven. It's so environmentally friendly that even the toilet water is collected from raindrops outside. Only this is not some pipe dream of a fringe activist. The vision comes from Tesco, the world's third largest retailer. Tesco is pumping £100 million into environmental...

Second Time Around

They were the children of the Organization Men, those gray-flannel-clad climbers whose zeal for corporate life remains a defining image of the 1950s. But by the time the first baby boomers began entering the work force in the late 1960s, times were changing. College degrees had become more prevalent. Women were seeking out careers that were once off-limits. Industrial jobs were giving way to even more office work. And America's postwar fascination with materialism--look, there's another new car...

It was Saturday at 8 a.m. and time to bake the biscuits.

Burning Suburbia

Long Island is the perfect place to wage war against suburban sprawl--for New York's Long Island, as Robert Wieboldt says, is home to Levittown, and Levittown is where suburbia really began. Wieboldt is executive vice president of the Long Island Builders Institute, which is offering a $10,000 reward for information on a spate of arson directed against new residential-construction projects--three incidents in the month of December, all within a 20-mile stretch of the mostly upscale North Shore....

The Man Behind The Agony

In the Macedonian refugee camp at Brazde, to which 25,000 Kosovars were transferred last week from the squalor of fields along the border, life is beginning to settle down. Famous visitors drop by: Queen Rania of Jordan, the president of Switzerland. Small mercies--an Israeli field hospital, a laundry, the chance to register for a flight to Norway--make life today a little better than it was yesterday.Better; but still terrible. In the tragedy of Slobodan Milosevic's war, the intolerable risks...

How Much Hunger?

It's the wisdom of the day: hunger is stalking Mother Russia. Soviet newspapers bristle with panic about the oncoming winter. There are fears of famine and popular revolt. The concerns have spread to the West, and last week President Bush announced a grant of $1.5 billion in food aid, to include not only technical assistance and credits for grain purchases but also direct food shipments, the first to the Soviet Union in 70 years. Even the U.S. Congress called a cease-fire in the sniping over...
