World leader in natural gas

Qatar's modest history of fishing and pearling was forever changed in the mid-20th century with the discovery of oil reserves. First discovered in 1939 but delayed by World War II, oil made it possible for Qatar to begin expanding and modernizing in the 1950s. Qatar joined OPEC in 1961. Oil paved the way to a variety of opportunities and in 1971 Qatar became an independent state. Published June 4, 2019

Supreme Court, Electoral College under scope as Dems want to change rules

Remember back in high school when your basketball team lost more games than it won? It was no fun, not for the team, not for the fans, and not for the students. Remember how rather than switch coaches or improve team training your school instead simply changed the rules? Each time your team scored a basket they were awarded 4 points rather than the standard 2. Was the rule change fair? No. It did meet your needs, however. Your school won more games.

Qatar rates as a model of success in a troubled region
