    For half a millennium, Russian foreign policy has been characterized by soaring ambitions that have exceeded the country’s capabilities. Beginning with the reign of Ivan the Terrible in the sixteenth century, Russia managed to expand at an average rate of 50 square miles per day for hundreds of years, eventually covering one-sixth of the earth’s landmass. By 1900, it was the world’s fourth or fifth-largest industrial power and the largest agricultural producer in Europe.

    Darth Maul is ready to strike. Fortunately, he’s only 4 inches tall and made of 3 ounces of molded plastic. The figurine alone is enough to grab fans’ attention. But under Darth Maul’s sand-colored base is a computer chip. Place him on a pad in front of a video game console and – presto – lights, ash, sparks fly and the plastic action figure is transformed into a digital character in a video game, ready to set off on an adventure inside the screen.

    The questions of what matters in dieting, cutting carbs or counting calories, and whether or not fat needs to be restricted, are not settled. If they were, soda companies wouldn’t be on the ropes; government dietary guidelines wouldn’t need to change every five years and provoke arguments upon release; and publishers would be even poorer than they are now.
