Divorce, Egyptian Style: Oprah’s Episode on Marriage Around the Globe

Wed, 10 Feb 2010 08:59:43 +0000

I was thrilled when I heard that Oprah Winfrey interviewed Egyptian women about marriage for an episode of her show about marriage around the globe. Oprah has always been such an inspiration for a lot of women, me included. I was so excited for her to highlight my world and how women like me get married and the challenges we face.

Naturally, the episode has grabbed a lot of attention. The guest list included

In support of a greener tomorrow

Tue, 03 Mar 2009 07:38:16 +0000


I am from a NGO and we promote use of green energy at homes as well as on road and offices. I invite people from all walks of life to share their views on this forum. You never know how much hope your views and ideas give to people like us as they continously remind us that need to combat climate change is being felt with the same passion across all the countries.

I know our housing is in a crunch. Iam seeing more and more families put out of there homes and this is distubing me. The goverment has started programs to help. But it is our finacial system greed that has gotten us here. Why can't they do there part. My family income is middle class. We are not rich, but we do ok(thank god). Two of my children however have not been so fortunate. They have both lost there homes to greedy institutions. When all the bank needed to do was work with them. It was not that they could not aford there homes when they brought them. They did not loose there Jobs. They made bad choices because the bank told them they will never be able to buy a home on a fixed 30 year rate. And not having the experiance they belived them. But now even though I have a good stable income, the bank is making it so hard to buy a home, that I continue to rent. It has taking me 4 months to find a lending institute to buy a home. Unless your credit rating is over 750 you will strugle to reach that dream. Most everyone I have ask, have lost there homes not because they lost there jobs, but because the leanding institutes would reather foreclose than work with the people. That in my opinion is greed.

Blogging The American Southwest

Tue, 16 Sep 2008 00:07:58 +0000

I'm looking for bloggers of The Southwest.... anyone know of any good blogs that are primarily storytelling, not so much re-gurgitating news (not that there is anything wrong with that)

I am wondering if there is a "workgroup" (a small group of women getting together & learning together and making weekly/monthly commitments) in North Jersey or New York City? If there isn't--anyone interested in joining/starting one with me?

hey new york, what about your carbon footprint?

Wed, 18 Jun 2008 05:48:43 +0000

I own a Eco Friendly travel agency and recently heard of this great Eco company called Green tomato Cabs in London. They bought 500 toyota prius hybrids and opened an eco cab company and are contributing to reducing carbon emissions in London. I was thinking why can't cab companies in New York ( seems to be the most useful there) either convert thier cabs into Biodiesel cars ( which only cost $1500 per car to do) or instead of buying those brand new lincolns they like to drive around, buy a prius and help erase some of the horrible carbon emmissions that poor new yorkers have to deal with daily. They would also save a ton in gas for the cabs and all the cars they buy would be write offs. i don't understand why people don't think about these things, its not that difficult and very beneficial to ones pocketbook and the enviroment.

Here wishing for a better world of thinkers and doers !!!

Great placeblogging site

Fri, 30 Nov 2007 19:54:23 +0000

Hi Placeblogging Enthusiasts,

I've been following Alex Iskold's posts on placeblogging on Read/Write. Here's a particularly good post The Rise Of Hyperlocal Information that gets into some of the new tools that can be used within a placeblog. Also good information on monetizing.

BTW... my Comment is #16 -- in short "My feeling is that the future success of hyperlocal sites lies in finding that nudget of cross-community passion -- then using it as the framework around which the hyperlocal site is built."

Placeblogging "Lessons Learned"

Mon, 05 Nov 2007 23:01:42 +0000

What "lessons learned" and pleasant surprises have you experienced in building, refining and publicizing your placeblog?

I live in a rural area. We have silos of local citizen-run groups. There is a recognized need to build an umbrella community -- to share information and resources, while each group maintains its functional autonomy. I've build a beta site (using the free hosting). Right now, it is mainly focusing on our local elections -- my intent is to build the content out (and beautify the design).

Sharing your experiences would be most welcomed.

What is Placeblogging?

Tue, 21 Aug 2007 19:21:10 +0000

Due to popular demand we've launched this forum to discuss "Placeblogging" and "Placebloggers". Sharing your personal "Placeblogging" content is also perfectly acceptable.

But first, you might want to know what "Placeblogging" is (and yes I'll drop the "" right now.)

Lisa wWilliams and the crew of Placeblogger says:

A placeblog is an act of sustained attention to a particular place over time
It can be done by one person, a defined group of people, or in a way that’s open to community contribution
It’s not a newspaper, though it may contain random acts of journalism
It’s about the lived experience of a place

Go read more about Placeblogging.

Are you a Placeblogger? Would you like to be?
