Comments section reform – request for comments

Dear friends, As promised, I am now sharing with you the reasons which prompted my decision to initiated a reform the comments section and the solutions I am thinking of.  Most importantly, I ask for your input as this should be a community-wide discussion. But first, sorry, I need to vent.  There are a few things which I have mentioned in the past, but I feel that I need to

The war on trolls, imbeciles and other pests is on! :-)

Wow, Eric Zuesses’ article really elicited a fury the like of which I have never seen, at least so far.  Right now there are seventy-fire (75!) intercepted comments sitting in my “trash bin” to review and either clear or terminate. And, just to add even more misery to an overworked Saker (and exhausted moderators!), I am about to post another article tomorrow which will, no doubt, infuriate the “other side”

Saker news update: all is well, I hope to be home in a couple of days (but please still don’t email me!)

Dear friends, God is merciful indeed!  Not only did Hurricane Irma not take the worst possible track (not even close), but she also lost a lot of power right at the ideal moment and then she took a very bad track (for her).  In my part of Florida the impact from an already weakened hurricane was, frankly, minimal.  My sons just returned home and found it unscathed and even our

Saker announcement: I am safe (but please do not email me!)

Dear friends, After a gruelling 16 hours on the road, I have safely arrived in southern Virginia.  I am safe and comfy, just with a slow Internet connection.  Thanks for your concern and good wishes.  I will stay put up here at least until Tuesday and, depending on the conditions, it might take me 2 days go get back down to Florida.  So being back to work on the blog

Saker message: I have to evacuate, signing off for a while

Dear friends, Hurricane Irma looks very, very powerful and the resulting hysteria in Florida is outright toxic (there are fistfights at gas stations). A friend offered to host us in Virgina and we have decided to accept that invitation.  So we are going to hit the road at 0500 tomorrow.  I will try my best to remain in contact and maybe even post a little something once I get to

Saker announcement: very uncertain week ahead

Dear friends, The glorious US corporate media did it again.  Even though Hurricane Irma is still a week away from any possible landfall in the USA, the media leeches did what they always did: the created a panic.  As a result, things are slowly but surely going crazy in Florida.  The problem with my much beloved Florida Peninsula is just that, a peninsula with basically only 3 evacuation highways to

Saker request for comment, suggestions + a poll and “ESSENTIAL SAKER” on free download!

Dear friends, Lots of thing on my mind today which I need to share with you.  But first, for starters, the good news: I have made my book “The Essential Saker: from the trenches of the emerging multipolar world” now available for unlimited free download!  Not only that, but I am releasing it under the Creative Common License BY-NC-ND which means that you are allowed (encouraged even!) to copy and

Hold the mayo – pass the grass!

Dear friends, Just a quick note to first thank you again for the tsunami of suggestions I received from so many of you.  Second, I also wanted to let you know that, having carefully considered the Mayo Clinic option, I have decided against it.  Instead, I have developed a treatment plan of sorts which combines elements from the different approaches you have suggested.  I am already doing better and I

Jacksonville, Mayo Clinic, natural/traditional meds, etc. (collective reply)

Dear friends, WOW!  I did not expect such a deluge of email and, frankly, such a tsunami of advice.  So, first and foremost, THANK YOU to all of you for your kindness and concern!! In fact, I got so many emails and comments that I cannot reply to all of them one by one (even though I DID read every one of them very carefully).  So I have decided on

Saker appeal to the community – a place to stay in/near Jacksonville, Florida

Dear friends, I am having some chronic pain issues which will require me to spend 5-8 days in Jacksonville, FL, in order to run a number of diagnostic tests and hopefully get a treatment at the local Mayo Clinic.  I will be honest and immediately admit that my trust level in modern medicine is pretty close to zero, but these guys are supposed to be better than the rest and

5’000 miles later, I am finally back home :-)

Dear friends, When I decided to drive back instead of flying back, I really had no idea what I was getting myself into.  Naively, I had planned on a huge 2’500 miles long trip.  What actually happened is that I grossly underestimated the actual size of this huge country and how much “sightseeing” would add to the trip.  Instead of 2’500 miles I actually ended up driving 5’000 miles, that’s

History of the Orthodox People website launched!

Dear friends, It is a real joy for me to announce to you the official launch of the History of the Orthodox People (HOP) website and project.  You can now find it here: Please keep in mind that at this point in time the HOP website is a placeholder, a kind of leaf-less “tree” with each “branch” dedicated to the history of one, specific, Orthodox people but with all

WordPress trainers needed!

Dear friends, I am looking for a few people who are comfortable using WordPress and who could donate some of their time to train others on how to use (not set up!) WordPress: creating a new post, uploading or copying a text file, adding media, formatting the post, add keywords, chose a category and add a featured image.  Straightforward stuff but something I don’t have the time to do myself.

Saker message – I need an administrative assistant!

Dear friends, In the midst of all the recent drama I have been forced to put-off today’s call for help. I need an administrative assistant. I would need somebody who is skilled with word processors and who can format a long text into an online book format.  I have two books I want to put online for the History of the Orthodox Peoples (HOP) project.  Right now they are one
