    Anyway it's not a surprise to anyone that men kill both others and themselves more often than women. We are more aggressive and suffer failure, real or perceived, less easily.
    I was only looking at the dark reds. You're right. I noticed China and Iraq have higher rates of female suicides than males. But the overall rates for those countries are pretty low. Overall, suicide is an overwhelmingly male behavior.

    Sony Hack: North Korea Experiences Internet Outage (Report)

    by THR Staff 12/22/2014 11:11am PDT

    Days after President Obama vowed a response to North Korea for a damaging cyberattack against Sony studios, the totalitarian regime is reportedly experiencing an internet outage on Monday.

    ‘‘The situation now is they are totally offline,’’ Doug Madory, director of Internet analysis at Dyn Research, told Bloomberg News. ‘‘I don’t know that someone is launching a cyber-attack against North Korea, but this isn’t normal for them. Usually they are up solid. It is kind of out of the ordinary. This is not like anything I’ve seen before.”

    The news report did not specify the origin of the internet outage.

    Another expert, CloudFlare founder Matthew Prince, described North Korea's current internet capability as "toast," according to The New York Times.

    On Friday, the president had pledged an unspecified response to the cyberattack.

    "They caused a lot of damage, and we will respond," Obama stated at a press conference. "We will respond proportionally, and we’ll respond in a place and time and manner that we choose. It’s not something that I will announce here today at a press conference."

    Russia May Be Cut to Junk as S&P Says It’s Considering Downgrade
    By Ye Xie Dec 23, 2014 1:04 PM ET

    Russia may lose its investment grade for the first time in a decade after Standard & Poor’s signaled it’s considering cutting the country’s rating.

    “We are reviewing our assessment of Russia’s monetary flexibility and the impact of the weakening economy on its financial system,” S&P said in a statement. The move implies at least a one-in-two likelihood of a “negative rating action”
