On May 13, 2012, Afsaneh Azadeh, an Iranian-American living in Dubai, touched down at Imam Khomeini International Airport in Tehran. Azadeh, who had returned to Iran to help her elderly mother convalesce from cataract surgery, tried to visit Tehran frequently, despite a punishing work schedule. At the time, she was employed as general manager of HeavyLift International, a private, United Arab Emirates-based cargo airline run by Farhad Azima, a politically connected Iranian-born American aviation magnate based in Kansas City, Missouri. Smart, loyal and ambitious, she had established herself as one of Azima’s key employees. Azadeh deplaned, exited customs and collected her bags. Suddenly, according to Azadeh, she was encircled by five agents of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard (IRGC), who informed her of her arrest on national security grounds. Her belongings were confiscated. She was handcuffed, blindfolded and pushed into the back seat of a car, where a female IRGC agent forced … [Read more...] about The Mysterious Tale of a Powerful American Businessman, Three Sanctioned Iranians and an Imprisonment in Tehran
Deep breaths make me cough
Michael was on the 55th floor of a high rise in an Asian capital, in a conference room, when his world cracked open. His heart began to race and the building felt as if it were swaying. "I'm dying," he remembers thinking. He excused himself from his meeting and returned to his hotel room. His mind on fire, he wondered how to call for help, whether insurance would cover him, and what his wife and two daughters would think if he died here, half a world away from his home in Northern California. He tried lying down but it felt like he was rolling off the bed. He found that if he did jumping jacks while holding his breath, his chaotic mind calmed down. Michael (who asked that his last name be withheld) didn't die. His psychiatrist back in California diagnosed him with panic attacks and prescribed Xanax. It helped, but something had changed that day in Asia, and the panic attacks began to strike regularly—while driving his daughter to art class, at the office, at home. "Once I had … [Read more...] about Ketamine Stirs Up Hope—and Controversy—as a Depression Drug

Gallery: Incumbent invites challenger to spend a day with him at Georgia's Capitol ATLANTA — Colton Moore speaks the language of the southern politician. He refers to his own generation as "the young folks," our current era as "this day and age." He calls a politician "a gentleman" and a gathering of politicians "a meeting among gentlemen." He makes observations such as "The Appalachian is a special breed. They're rugged, independent." And his voice: It's deep and smooth, like an old radio announcer's. It travels through halls and takes command of conversations. This isn't an accident. Moore, 24, trained his voice. He sits in his room alone, verbally sprinting through tongue twisters. "Betty-Botta-bought-a-bit-of-butter-but-she-said-this-butter's-bitter," he chants. "Around-the-rough-and-rugged-rock-the-ragged-rascal-ran." "Tommy-Atatamas-took-two-Ts-and-tied-them-to-the-top-of-two-tall-trees." Moore thinks hard about how to use this voice. He considers how to best approach … [Read more...] about Incumbent invites challenger to spend a day with him at Georgia’s Capitol [photos]
