Absurdly Driven looks at the world of business with a skeptical eye and a firmly rooted tongue in cheek. Status consciousness can affect human consciousness. It's easy for us to decide that we're not who we think we are, but who others think we must be. So we surround ourselves with trappings and sneer at those who might have less. These dark musings come to mind on hearing that an airline has suddenly decided to radically alter the way it boards passengers. Earlier this week, I flew back on British Airways from Europe and must confess that the boarding process was an orderly as a Hieronymus Bosch painting. My heart therefore beat with glee on hearing that, with touching timing, the airline
The top nuclear commander in the U.S. said Saturday that he would reject an “illegal” nuclear attack order from President Donald Trump, and would instead steer the commander in chief to other “options.”
Nadia Murad grew up dreaming of owning a beauty salon. The youngest of 11 children in a Yazidi family in northwest Iraq, she took photographs of all the brides in her tiny village, studying their makeup and hair. Her favorite was of a brunette woman with curls piled high atop her head. But after ISIS overtook her village in August 2014, that dream died.

Two people were killed on Friday as Kenyan police tried to disperse supporters cheering a convoy carrying opposition leader Raila Odinga from the airport to central Nairobi, a Reuters photographer said. Police fired tear gas at the convoy and used water cannon as they tried to stop it reaching the capital’s main business district, live footage on Kenyan TV showed. Some protesters threw stones at police. TV footage showed two vehicles on fire. The deaths occurred as police and protesters fought on one of the main roads leading to the business district, the photographer said. Police spokesmen did not immediately respond to phone calls. Odinga has called for a “National Resistance Movement” to protest against the outcome of a repeat presidential election last month which saw President Uhuru Kenyatta win a second, five-year term with 98 percent of the vote after Odinga boycotted the contest. Only 39 percent of registered voters took part. The repeat poll was ordered by the Supreme Court after it annulled the results of the August election, won by Kenyatta, over procedural irregularities. In what is seen as the last chance for legal scrutiny of the vote, the court will rule on Monday on cases that seek to nullify the rerun election.
