New publications are available at the Scout Report!

  1. RAND Corporation: Experts on Al Qaeda After Bin Laden
  2. The Rand Corporation has been looking at the structure and activities of terrorist organizations since the early 1970s. Their work has examined these organizations, their motivations, recruitment and training methods, and why some are ultimately more successful than others. RAND has also done extensive examinations into al Qaeda, and with the recent death of Osama Bin Laden, numerous media groups and policy analysts have called on their experts to give testimony on related matters. This particular site brings together selected research, testimony, and commentary on these subjects and visitors are encouraged to scroll through the offerings here…

  3. National Geographic Traveler
  4. The staff at the National Geographic Traveler magazine knows a thing or two about travel, and their print magazine is full of thoughtful suggestions about where to go in Providence, how to wander around in Bangkok, and the lighthouses of Croatia. Sprinkled across the top of the web page, visitors will find topical areas, which include “Photo of the Week”, “Intelligent Travel Blog”, and “Newsletter”. The “Intelligent Travel Blog” is a great place to start, and there are posts on an annual worm charming festival in the United Kingdom and the value of travel for school-age children…

  5. Global Voices
  6. Former CNN Beijing and Tokyo Bureau Chief Rebecca MacKinnon and Africa expert Ethan Zuckerman started Global Voices while they were both fellows at Harvard. The website is a community of over 300 bloggers and translators from around the world whose aim is “to redress some of the inequities in media attention by leveraging the power of citizens’ media.” The website has “featured stories” and “latest stories” on the homepage, as well as “Updates” and “Special Coverage”, such as “Gabon Unrest 2011”, “Nigeria Elections 2011”, and the “Death of Osama Bin Laden”. The site can also be searched by “Countries”, “Topics” and “Contributors”…
