Author and renowned speaker Parag Khanna wrote a very thought provoking article in the Financial Times about a future world that will closely resemble the one in the Middle Ages, where there were many powerful and prominent nations. The new world will be similar, he says, but instead of countries, the centers of power will be big corporations, religious groups, global cities and powerful individuals. He also foresees countries often involved in internal strife being governed by a public-private system and companies playing greater role than governments in providing public welfare services.

The police officer at the center of a national dispute over race and law enforcement says a much-anticipated meeting at the White House was productive and all parties are looking forward. Cambridge, Mass., police Sgt. James Crowley spoke after meeting with President Barack Obama and Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr., along with Vice President Joe Biden. Crowley described himself and Gates as "two gentlemen who agreed to disagree" about the confrontation that led to Gates' arrest. He said that the conversation centered on moving forward, not reliving the events of the past two weeks, and that they plan more meetings.
