Have you ever witnessed a vehicle idling, while spewing toxic fumes into the air that you are breathing? NYC is offering cold cash for all tipsters, or rats as they call them in some circles. Are the Big Apple streets paved with gold?

How does democracy evolve from the authoritarian rule? Many dictators self-destruct and they choose to surrender power.

Their mistakes are often overconfidence and the illusion of total control.
