Nu, a coconut!
Bill Semich bought the rights to the .nu domain from the government of Niue (Niue means "look, a coconut") eight years ago, hoping to market it as an alternative to the dot com. Lucky for him, "nu" means "now" in Swedish, which in turn means that several thousand Swedish companies are using the .nu suffix and are paying Mr Semich $30 a year for the privilege. Now Niue wants its .nu back. Good luck with that!
Discontent on the deeply Christian island was fostered in 2004 when it was revealed that ".nu" was also a common suffix for pornographic sites, although Mr Semich denied any responsibility for the registration of the sites.

The row dominated last year's elections, amid allegations of "neo-colonialism" and anger that the government no longer controlled a lucrative national asset.
Shouldn't those be allegations of nu-colonialism?

Brits want to ban toy guns
Tony Blair's Labour is taking its gun-grabbing ways to their farcical logical conclusion, seeking to ban the ownership of toy guns, as well as shotguns:
the British government this year has been debating whether to ban toy guns. As a middle course, some unspecified number of imitation guns will be banned, and it will be illegal to take imitation guns into public places.

And in July a new debate erupted over whether those who own shotguns must now justify their continued ownership to the government before they will get a license.

The irony is that after gun laws are passed and crime rises, no one asks whether the original laws actually accomplished their purpose. Instead, it is automatically assumed that the only "problem" with past laws was they didn't go far enough. But now what is there left to do? Perhaps the country can follow Australia's recent lead and ban ceremonial swords.

Despite the attention that imitation weapons are getting, they account for a miniscule fraction of all violent crime (0.02%) and in recent years only about 6% of firearms offenses. But with crime so serious, Labor needs to be seen as doing something. The government recently reported that gun crime in England and Wales nearly doubled in the four years from 1998–99 to 2002–03.

Crime was not supposed to rise after handguns were banned in 1997. Yet, since 1996 the serious violent crime rate has soared by 69%: robbery is up by 45% and murders up by 54%. Before the law, armed robberies had fallen by 50% from 1993 to 1997, but as soon as handguns were banned the robbery rate shot back up, almost back to their 1993 levels.

The 2000 International Crime Victimization Survey, the last survey done, shows the violent-crime rate in England and Wales was twice the rate in the U.S. When the new survey for 2004 comes out, that gap will undoubtedly have widened even further as crimes reported to British police have since soared by 35%, while declining 6% in the U.S.

Vets face employment hassles
Oliver North points out a shameful secret: the unemployment rate among GWoT vets is triple the US unemployment rate, and no one is doing a hell of a lot about it.
Veterans' unemployment is more than a national embarrassment -- it actually hurts national security, adversely affects recruiting an all-volunteer force. Military recruiters acknowledge that nearly half of those who agree to join do so believing that they will be "more employable" after completing military service. Once the word gets out that it is in fact harder to get a job after a "hitch" in uniform -- signing up quality recruits gets a whole lot tougher.
Clearly, threats of lawsuits and voluntary programs like Hire Vets First are not enough. It's time for Congress to provide tangible incentives -- like a federal tax break for businesses that hire war vets. It's the surest way to reward those who have served -- and help keep us the home of the brave and the land of the free.

France, the land of universal tenure
Allister Heath has written an excellent article, asking whether France is ungovernable. Well, is France ungovernable? It's certainly unemployable-given the excesses of irresponsibility that tenured academics in the US exhibit, how can any rational businessman want to hire more French people? The entire damn country has tenure!
Going hand in hand with a bloated government and an oppressive tax burden is an execessive amount of red tape, especially in the labour market, as well as very high non-wage costs and social security contributions that employers must pay. These and other hidden taxes on jobs are the main reason why only 34% of those over the age of 55 work (against an average of 50% for countries in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) and among those aged from 16 to 25, only 26.4% are in work. France’s 2,501-page Code du Travail, the country’s labour market regulations, is a hideous document which makes it is so hard to fire workers that companies are extremely reluctant to offer permanent contracts. The standard rules for French workers stipulate that employees can be sacked only if employers are able to prove a “serious” fault or that they are in crisis. Two out of three cases for unfair dismisal in France end up with the plaintiff winning in or out of court.

In France’s deeply distorted and dysfunctional labour market, those with jobs form two tribes. The lucky ones have government-specified “contrat à durée indéterminée” (CDI) contracts, with full job protection, generous benefits and retirement packages. But the difficulty of ending CDIs have encouraged companies that do need more staff to hire most of them on short-term “contrat à durée déterminée” (CDD) contracts, creating a growing army of people who have work, but fear they may soon lose it. This is a central reason for France’s obsession with “insecurity”; paradoxically, because of misguided government intervention, many jobs in France are actually less secure than in the US or UK, where most people who want them have permanent contracts.
How can this bizarre system survive continued contact with reality? Heath's is a long piece, but well worth reading. More:
France’s best and brightest have already decided that there is only one viable solution: to leave the country and find a job in a more rational economy. From 1991 to 2002, the number of French workers living in other parts of western Europe jumped 47%, to 563,977 from 382,708, according to Insee, the French national statistics agency. About 20,000 went to Ireland over that decade. The number leaving for Britain more than doubled, to 85,823, including this writer. French expatriates in the United States increased 44% to 88,287. But these figures, the latest available, miss out the huge outflow of the past three years.
