The 10-Point: My Guide to the Day's Top News

The Wall Street Journal
Good morning,
Target: Berlin
Apparent terrorist incidents in Germany and Turkey sent shock waves through geopolitical establishments on Monday as a turbulent 2016 edged to a violent close. In Berlin, a truck plowed into a popular Christmas market near one of the city’s prime tourist sites, leaving at least 12 people dead, in what German Chancellor Angela Merkel said is believed to have been a terrorist attack that may have been perpetrated by a migrant who had sought asylum in the country. At about 8 p.m., a black semitrailer with Polish license plates drove onto the sidewalk and plunged into a crowd of revelers, injuring 48 additional people. The driver fled the scene but was apprehended about a mile away. A passenger in the truck, a Polish man, was among the dead. The suspect in the attack is from Pakistan, a person familiar with the investigation said. If determined to be a terror attack, it would be the first in Germany to result in deaths in recent years and could have significant political ramifications.

Assassination in Ankara
A young Turkish policeman, railing about Russia’s role in Syria’s bloody war, shot and killed Moscow’s ambassador to Ankara during an art opening in the Turkish capital on Monday night, an attack that all three countries termed an act of terror. A video of the shooting showed the assailant, in a black suit and white shirt, standing over Andrey Karlov with gun in hand, shouting, “Don’t forget Aleppo, don’t forget Syria.” Although Ankara and Moscow have been on opposite sides of the struggle in Syria, official ties between the two have warmed this year. Both capitals said they expect talks about an Aleppo cease-fire to go ahead in Moscow on Tuesday. Meanwhile, just hours after the shooting, another Turkish man fired shots outside the American embassy in Ankara, leading the U.S. to close its three main missions in Turkey.
‘Ponzi-esque’ Platinum
Federal prosecutors filed a criminal indictment on Monday alleging that the founder of hedge fund Platinum Partners, Mark Nordlicht, and others operated perhaps the largest fraud since Bernard L. Madoff’s Ponzi scheme. Authorities estimate that $1 billion from more than 600 Platinum investors may have been swindled. Mr. Nordlicht was arrested on Monday, along with Platinum’s former president, and four others, accused of faking the firm’s performance figures to collect a hefty cut of all investment gains and project a veneer of financial stability. Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Robert Capers described the scheme as “Ponzi-esque.” Platinum struggled to attract money from skeptical, deep-pocketed professional investors. Instead, like Madoff a decade ago, it turned time and again to a tightknit group of fellow observant Jewish businesspeople with whom Platinum’s founders were acquainted socially.
The Good Stuff
Americans are gobbling up chocolate with a rapidly increasing appetite. This year, sales are expected to reach $18.8 billion, up 18% since 2011. But is there a best way to indulge? Increasingly, consumers seem to say that chocolate is OK if it’s the fancy stuff. Nearly half of chocolate eaters say they look for “premium” ingredients. Dark chocolate, with its higher cocoa content, for instance, is perceived as healthier. Permission is granted for chocolates that proclaim high cocoa content and organic and fair-trade origins. High-end bars are ergonomically designed for a thumb to snap off a guilt-free nibble and wrapped in elegant foil and cardboard. While cocoa does appear to reduce risk factors for heart disease, eating chocolate in moderation is still best, dietitians say.

READER RESPONSE
Responding to yesterday’s question on the Electoral College vote, Roy Farrow of Nevada said: “It is the best system for a large, diverse country and continues to work as our founding fathers envisioned. If a candidate is too busy raising money in a couple states to visit other states, she will pay the price.” Wendy Silverman of New York wrote: “I’ve tried to be open-minded and to understand any rationale to maintain the Electoral College but continue to come down to two points: 1. It gives voters in smaller states disproportionate power ignoring the one person-one vote goal. 2. It ignores the will of the majority and ultimately the winner is the one who figures out how to game the system focusing on certain swing states. I see no reason that the president should not be elected by popular vote in the current age of mass communication.” And Jack Fischer of Maryland shared: “The campaign underway today to flip electoral votes is extraordinarily dangerous to our democracy. If successful, the effect would be to place the election of presidents, today and tomorrow, in the hands of the 538 electors, in effect disenfranchising every United States citizen, Democrat or Republican, from any meaningful role in the election process. If unsuccessful, it nevertheless sets a precedent for either party to make similar attempts in future years. Even understanding the thirst for power, it is difficult to come to grips with the fact that prominent politicians have lent their names and reputations to such a catastrophic narrative.”

This daily briefing is named "The 10-Point" after the nickname conferred by the editors of The Wall Street Journal on the lead column of the legendary "What's News" digest of top stories. Technically, "10-point" referred to the size of the typeface. The type is smaller now but the name lives on.
