Global Problems And Its Solution

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 09:15:37 -0600

The germs of violence that constitute the misery of the majority besides the abundance enjoyed by a minority of inhabitants of the Earth, pollution of the atmosphere, water, grabbing and waste of resources fossil energies and rare raw materials, population explosion, monetary disorder, are all problems that arise on a planetary scale and that go beyond the jurisdiction of States. This quote is from the cover page of the association Citizens of the World, whose genesis goes back to 1924 and the birth in 1949 just after the second world war and the theory of global warming.

Living Among the Dead (1)

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 07:23:24 -0600

Living among the dead? I can hear you ask. Yes! One can be alive and yet live like a dead person or have everything around him lifeless. One can be breathing, surviving and still be dead emotionally, spiritually and financially. Issues of life like health, mental, debt, relationship or family challenges can also make somebody live like a dead person while still alive. I have heard people refer to others as 'walking corpses'. That means that walking and talking do not necessarily make somebody 'alive'. True? Are you actually living or are you a 'living corpse' or 'walking corpse' because of the things happening in and around you??

Warrior's Credo Part 3: Duty, Discipline and Devotion In Post-Modern American Society

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 15:27:29 -0600

The burden of bondage, as suggested in the Part 2 section, has multiple implications, higher dimensions of thought, action, and concerns the strenuous demand for transformation. From the basic intricacies, to the more complex issues of personality, the passage is a treacherous and tortuous adventure of self-evolution. Each aspect pays homage to the inner indescribable human principles of creative potency that is individually mysterious. As no one person has all the answers, or for that matter any particular conclusion, the scope and density of human thinking is vast. As used here this "spirituality or energy" refers to those unknown, unseen and unexplainable manifestations of human creation from ideation to action. Existence and evolution or devolution are difficult to surmise. By myth, superstition and metaphor, magical thinking pretends to know the unknowable to every extent imaginable. But for nature-nurture, the knowing is complex and multidimensional. No foolproof comprehension has been made absolutely, definitively and perfectly conclusive about much of anything regarding human behavior. And, while humanity invites its extinction by intentional stupidity of conduct, schools of thought claim certain areas of philosophical speculation. All viewpoints are arguable.

Paradise Stolen: Your Privacy Is Under Attack

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 08:49:03 -0600

The Pains and Gains of Ember Months In Nigeria

Fri, 10 Nov 2017 14:54:57 -0600

Did Trump Just Start the Next Recession?

Fri, 10 Nov 2017 09:06:55 -0600

Almost all Fed chairs have been economists. But the chair named by President Donald Trump isn't an economist - and that could be disastrous for our economy.

Stopping the Cybersecurity 'Spiral of Death'

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 08:20:42 -0600

We can learn plenty about where the cybersecurity world is headed by following a lesson from history: More automation. Fewer people. Fewer problems.

The Problem With Humans

Sat, 04 Nov 2017 15:44:06 -0500

Two thousand years ago the phrase libido dominante, the lust for power, was coined referring to the first Roman Emperor, Augustus Caesar (63BC-14AD). Not just old news, but ancient news, the insatiable hunger for power historically unleashed the worst of human nature and left death, pain and suffering in its wake. Think: Cleopatra, Catherine the Great, Queen Mary, Amivi Gama, Chairman Mao, Idi Amin, Vladmir Lenin, Pol Pot, Benito Mussolini, Francisco Franco and Adolph Hitler to name but a few notables. There are more, virtually everywhere, just not quite as extreme.

Does A Portable Toilet Make Better Content For The Film?

Fri, 03 Nov 2017 08:27:39 -0500

The ever-changing era of the modern world has molded the concept of adapting to the change irrevocably; perhaps reasons are in many numbers; probably we cannot keep counting every bit of it, and neither sanitation arrangement. The scenario of cleanness replicates the similar situation around the world, thus don't be panic if you get to see the more adverse effect on the life cycle in days to come. Sanitation alludes to the arrangement of facilities and services provided to dispose of the human waste and fecal material in a proper way.

Tax Reform Means Big Money for Small Investors

Fri, 03 Nov 2017 08:23:45 -0500

Sensors In Your Cereal: The Next Food War

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 08:35:51 -0500

Whoever you think will survive the next food war, the key is that behind all of these attempts to grab consumer dollars are sensors, software and Big Data. But there's still a way for you to profit.

The Age of Devolution

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 15:35:59 -0500

An age of devolution is a phrase that suggests the coming extinction of the human species. A number of researchers, serious scientists from the realms of physics, biology, and genetics, suggest calamitous events yet to come. Of this sphere of inquiry these are real scientists, and not pseudo-scientist you find in the ranks of philosophies like psychology, sociology and criminology. Hardcore science realism is addressing human species regression that suggests eventual human extinction. A "devolving" state of affairs is not meant in a biological sense, but in regard to intellectual ascendancy.

How to Accurately Study Society

Tue, 24 Oct 2017 14:54:20 -0500

In our "so-called" society, especially in small towns of some states, some couples have the habit of quarrelling outside their house. It's quite prevalent everywhere, and for their kids too specially lower class. Childhood is the tender age, wherein a child has to be brought up by good moral values but due to some unusual circumstances, they get to face harsh realities of the world, which start from their own family. How does it feel for a 5-year old baby to watch their parents fighting in front of their eyes? What impact and lessons their parents are giving to their children? How does a child will grow in such a demeaning family atmosphere?

What Is Racism?

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 07:07:32 -0500

A debate about the berker and its being a religious garb began in Australia when a Senator, Pauline Hanson, wore one into the Senate. The Leader accused her of denigrating a religious garment and others called her racist. Many are now confused over what racism is and how that applies to an objection to full face covering.

The Illusion of Warrior Cop Versus Guardian Collusion

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 15:17:50 -0500

The illusion is simple. From the perspective herein, the adherents of appeasement, pacification and submission, for "political correctness" in a rubric of defeatism and intentional self-victimization, hastily subscribe to a divisive context. In opposition to those trained to "serve and protect", the "warriors", others who easily surrender their individualism for the herded psychosis of "group think", construct the illusion of a "guardian", as opposed to a crime fighter. Mostly pampered, comfortably sheltered, untested in the real world, and inexperienced in the hardships of life, they rally in opposition to real 1% who will protect them no matter what evil lurks.

Me Too - Is Not Enough

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 21:17:15 -0500

#MeToo is trending worldwide and my Facebook wall is filled with comment on this campaign. It all started on Sunday 15th October when actress Alyssa Milano posted a tweet. If you've been sexually harassed or assaulted write 'me too' as a reply to this tweet..

Black Lives Matter: A Movement of Deception

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 07:29:53 -0500

The Black Lives Matter movement is an ideological and political invention of deception. "Why some prominent Black men such as: Rev. Al Sharpton, Rev, Jessie Jackson, Dr. Cornell West, Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, Rep. John Lewis, Spike Lee etc. have chosen to sit this movement out - hmmm?"

Kim Jung-Un Vs World: The Nuclear War That Will Never Happen - Part 2

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 07:28:49 -0500

As our country and rest of the world becomes further submerged in racial division and civil unrest. Is there anyone who can reveal the motives and objective reasoning behind this obvious smokescreen?

Cowardice in Post-Modern Dystopia

Wed, 04 Oct 2017 12:09:41 -0500

Courage, the pluck of audacity to be different, in the face bullied collective conformity, falls to a minority of self-evolving liberated individuals. For most, cowardice comes in diverse forms. For many, that will surface in a socio-economic and political context. With politicians for instance, very few will take exceptional risks for the sake of a moral or ethical higher realm. Most will avoid endangering their career long "public trough" feeding. Fear of serious controversy overrides any sense of mature responsibility and virtuous accountability. Leadership today suffers scarcity.

Bitcoin's Collapsing, But There's a Much Safer Digital Currency

Tue, 03 Oct 2017 08:57:26 -0500

I missed bitcoin's surge to $5,000. And you might be wondering, after its recent decline, if you should get in. Here's what I believe.

Is Trump a Threat to Your First Amendment Rights?

Tue, 03 Oct 2017 08:19:22 -0500

The chief user of free speech (albeit in constant Twitter chatter) is a far greater threat to free speech than anything happening on college campuses. But just how big of a threat to the First Amendment is the president?

Amish & Muslims

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 07:03:58 -0500

Islam moves into a country and makes demands. My wife and I shop at an Amish General Store and found some striking comparisons. Neither of the two religions wishes to assimilate into their host societies. Yet one manages to live a peaceful co-existence... the other cannot. Which one is it?

Around the World of Islam in 7 Days

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 07:03:46 -0500

In America and around the world today, Islam is promoted, touted and held up as a religion of peace. Yet when we scan the worlds daily headlines we find a disturbingly different reality. In this article, we take a quick look at the headlines describing one week of less than peaceful activity by followers of Islam worldwide. Why is that?

When Will We Wake Up?

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 19:15:57 -0500

When we intentionally ignore the things that plague us a society we become part of the problem. It is actually far more damaging when you act as if everything is fine. It gives support to the wrong doers but even worse issue it encourages it. This statement is not meant to divide but enlighten. When you point your finger remember the ones on your hand that are pointing back at you. To understand what part you play gives us the ground work needed to develop a plan. Waking up to a better day is what we all want. You paid a price for it so present yourself worthy of what you paid.

The Jury System: Necessary, But Flawed, Wasteful, And Inconsistent

Tue, 26 Sep 2017 06:55:24 -0500

One thing, which differentiates democracies, from other forms of governments, is the supposed, guarantees of a variety of different freedoms! One of these, is, the concept, one is presumed, innocent, until proven guilty, and that defendants, are entitled, to a jury of their peers. Unfortunately, however, the concept, is often, quite different, from the reality of how it's implemented.

Where Is Your Moral Compass?

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 07:20:01 -0500

There are times in a person's life where he or she has to be held accountable for their own actions. In a world that seems like a ball of confusion; do you ever take the time to gather yourself and check your own motives?

Opinions Matter and I Am Probably Too Opinionated In the Eyes of Many

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 09:18:44 -0500

My main problem is the enormous hunger for truth and knowledge that came with me from birth. With memory of my reincarnation and born with a different language to my parents my connection to the Spirit of the Universe made me this way. It's like walking outside of my body looking in on a journey that will soon end but my spirit will go on.

It Is Time To Amend The Illogical State Of Postal Abbreviations

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 19:53:01 -0500

The category for the final question on a recent episode of a popular game show was U. S. Postal abbreviations, a topic I thought I might conquer because many in my family had careers as mail carriers.

10 Life Lessons That Were Reinforced in Me Because of Hurricane Irma

Tue, 12 Sep 2017 11:37:19 -0500

1. Be Patient Waiting sucks! Over the years I have learned that patience is not easy, and I have tried to become increasingly more patient as I have matured. But this is not always easy. As I waited for Hurricane Irma's arrival, I felt myself ruminating and creating scenarios in my mind that did nothing but stir up anxiety within me. I teach my clients "worry when it's time to worry" and I found myself repeatedly stopping and saying to myself "worry when it's time to worry." 2. Humor Works I also was reminded while waiting for Irma that there are very few things in my control in this world. Hurricanes, and the path it chooses to take, are one of those things I can't control. So, I found myself working hard to control the one thing that I could, my attitude. Since I could control my attitude, I used humor to make me laugh in a time of uncertainty. I found myself spending hours looking at memes about Hurricane Irma sharing with family and friends who also laughed with me.

Gluttonous Consumer Society and Excessive Advertising Variety

Wed, 06 Sep 2017 14:47:57 -0500

Ten years ago, a major northeastern newspaper reported that nearly 60% of survey respondents complained about the excessive nature of American corporate advertising. Voluminously incessant, viewers said they felt not only overwhelmed but also annoyed. Many indicated they would not purchase products from companies perceived as overpowering them with ads. After a decade, technology to push sales and promotional gimmicks has changed. Every electronic means of human interaction is inundated by ever-increasing advertisements. From phone apps to "tubes", a promo for something, anything, stuff to be sold, is up close, in the face, and personal.

Has Diana Hit British Royalty a Fatal Blow From The Grave?

Fri, 01 Sep 2017 18:56:37 -0500

One can't quite imagine that the institution of royalty in Britain will come to an end. People are enamoured with the Queen and the images of fancy that make up the hype and rituals of having it around. But the question remains whether the Diana tapes, played to the point of nausea over the media in the last week or so, will deliver such a 'king-hit' to its majesty that it may be hard to heal the bruising.

What Is Royalty But Pretence?

Fri, 01 Sep 2017 06:44:32 -0500

It's 20 years since Diana, Princess of Wales, was tragically killed and the media is full of reports about anything and everything to do with royalty. The palaces, hype, ceremonies, and rituals are what people crave when they turn out to witness the passing parade of fairy-tale like figures. But they are all human, with the same characteristics and faults as any other of the species.

What Is a Humanist?

Fri, 01 Sep 2017 06:44:22 -0500

This was a new term for me when someone told me that is what he is. My research to learn more about what a humanist is led me to uncover some interesting facts. It appears they have no philosophy other than what earlier writers, such as Omar Khayyam, left the world to ponder on.

Misguided Excuses for Homosexuality and Transvestite Problems

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 07:04:36 -0500

It is now so common globally that countries are forced to change their laws in regards to the marriage act. While this has occurred in even the most religious of places, such as in Ireland, it is bogged down in Australia. This is largely because of the influence of religious control over politicians who refuse to contemplate that homosexuality is anything more than something for which individuals are responsible.

Basic Considerations - Empathy for Stupidity

Wed, 30 Aug 2017 15:23:09 -0500

By assertion of self-motived maturation toward an evolving enlightened development, the differentiated personality perseveres toward a selfless transformation. With the advent of the "selfie" fixation of arrogant ignorance, in a post-modern age of inexperienced "expertise", the challenges remain curiously fascinating. For the mature individual, self-improvement is one of liberated self-reliance and pursuit of open-minded transformation in becoming a wiser more learned version than the original template.

Did Captain Cook Discover Australia?

Tue, 29 Aug 2017 06:51:07 -0500

This is a contentious issue as indigenous Australians want the date of Australia Day changed. They claim it represents genocide of their people as Cook sailed into Botany Bay on 26th January, which is now used to celebrate the event. The question is, however, was his arrival a discovery or invasion?

Getting Inside the Gay Marriage Debate

Thu, 24 Aug 2017 06:46:20 -0500

What is it really about? Marriage is a Catholic ritual performed by magician priests who declare they have the power of God to join people in this so-called sacred union. The whole thing is against nature because until a few centuries ago no one really got married.

The Gold Vs Bitcoin Cage Match: Place Your Bets

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 08:29:26 -0500

Cults, Conspiracies and Corporate Corruption

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 15:15:34 -0500

From cultic behaviors, to conspiracy theories, along with corporate and government intrigue, the world of human beings remains both fascinating and dangerous. While one person's murderous terrorist is another person's spiritual adviser, the depths of human depravity has few limitations. Of interest to this point is the number of professing "believers" in a particular religious belief system. Worldwide, one research foundation known for many studies across the human landscape, says more than 80% of the world's population believes or affiliates with a particular form of religion.

HOMELESS WEEK: Living on the Streets and What It Taught

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 11:55:10 -0500

While coming out from the railway station, driving on the roads and on many more occasions we see people living on footpaths and we feel pity for them. It is easy to sympathize for a homeless person and talk among ourselves what problems they might be facing in their everyday lives. You cannot judge a fruit just by its colour.

Sydney's Martin Place Tents Produced Unexpected Results for The Homeless

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 09:25:22 -0500

It was somewhat of an embarrassment to both the state government and the city council when homeless people started living on the pavement in Martin Place.

Egyptians Are Not God (1)

Thu, 10 Aug 2017 07:16:34 -0500

The 'Egyptians' represent those proud, heartless and boastful enemies. They boast of their power over you. They boast of their strength, the connections and their advantage over you. They also boast of their weapons - spiritually and physically. They boast that that they will keep you down and eventually eliminate you. These are the category of enemies God is addressing here. Now, the word of God is saying to you that these boastful 'Egyptians', enemies are mere humans and not God. They a puny (weak) flesh. Their threats will surely come to nothing. Yes, they will perish with their threats and you will celebrate your victory. Share this message.

Thoughts on Race

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 21:49:10 -0500

I believe that part of my life's purpose is to help some people see the light, beauty and grace of God in black people. Some people were literally raised racists. Funny thing is that I even lived with one of them without knowing how she felt about the black race until she confessed to me that she was raised racist and had a hard time "accepting me" at first, but tried really hard to cover her feelings about my race.

The Zombie Progression

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 07:33:55 -0500

It's no longer implausible now. It's happening everywhere, it's rampant everywhere and it's not imperceptible. We need to retain some of the humanly senses to understand it and to think about why it's being so...

Regardless of Race, Language or Religion: Turning a Dream Into a Reality

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 09:52:57 -0500

It's high time we cut the rhetoric and actually find a way to move forward together as one society. Playing the blame game or the minority card isn't going to help anyone. Instead, let us look at some concrete steps that each and every one of us can take to solve the issue of 'racism' and 'privilege' in society.

The Success Story of a Bank Manager With Narikuravas, the Gypsy People (Nomadic Tribe) of Tamilnadu

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 08:27:30 -0500

Narikuravas are the nomadic people of South India. They move from place to place with their family members and personal belongings. They are definitely not a good selection for lending by bankers. There are several reasons for this conclusion. First, their movements. Secondly they resort to illegal practices to earn their livelihood. Thirdly they are not disciplined to repay the loans. Last and the most important truth is that the do not have sufficient income to repay the amounts borrowed. But the author enumerates a success story in which all the above conceptions were smashed by events which were totally contrary to the above beliefs. The narikuravas were lent money, they did business successfully, repaid the loans and were successful in social life. (The name and identity of the bank and other details are withheld.)

How Incredible is India's Obsession for Extravagant Tall Statues?

Mon, 31 Jul 2017 13:33:56 -0500

The verity of the fact that monuments are the source of pride and symbol for a country cannot be put through the wringer. India holds a robust repertoire of such monuments that we Indians can boast over for ages. However, the government's decision for amending the list of monuments by erecting couple of statues, each vying for the world's-tallest enrollment, could not cease to amaze many. Soon all corners of the country started whooping with the questions such as 'why' and 'why not'.

Go to Zarephath

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 22:30:12 -0500

Difficult times are the best times, best opportunities to expect the supernatural interventions of heaven in our affairs. And understanding this eternal truth is critical to our success in this journey of life. Our God remains the Almighty in rainy or dry season, spring time or winter, in good as well as in difficult times. Situations, conditions, seasons and environment may change, but God and His plans remain constant. His eternal purposes remain forever!

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 07:11:53 -0500

Interest Rate Conundrum Seems Well Beyond the Fed's Pay Grade

Sun, 16 Jul 2017 08:36:33 -0500

In recent months the Federal Reserve (the Fed) started a marketing (if not real) campaign to raise interest rate levels to more "normal" levels, ostensibly because the US and global economy has shown meaningful signs of "recovery and stability." What's the correct next step? Does the Fed continue talking up interest rates in the hope of propelling the financial sector even at the risk of tanking the global economy?

When Was The Start of the Day of The Lord?

Sun, 16 Jul 2017 07:05:07 -0500

Old Testament Prophecies are based on the day of the lord and what happens at the end of it. While it is a prominent aspect of them religious leaders have no inkling of what it actually means. Following my reincarnation and with a strong link to the Spirit of the Universe, many things were shown to me including a vision of the day.

Why Medical Students Emigrate to Become Doctors - Nigeria As a Case Study

Thu, 13 Jul 2017 11:40:12 -0500

Many a doctor of Nigerian descent has found it lucrative and a first time option to emigrate to another country presumed to be better and more advanced than theirs. This ''greener pasture" seems to be the dream of most doctors in Nigeria which fuels their drive to seek emigration. Same can be said of medical students and would-be medical doctors. In 2013, the Nigerian Medical Association estimated that about two-thirds of Nigerian doctors practice outside Nigeria. Worried by this trend, I approached 5 random colleagues of mine and inquired if they will follow the trend if given the opportunity, to this, they all responded in the affirmative. It is therefore obvious that major challenges exist in the health sector in Nigeria that brings dissatisfaction among its stakeholders leading to the desire to try somewhere different. These challenges are multi factorial and a proper dissection of the issues arising seems expedient

Predatory Arrogance and Primal Subservience - Part 1

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 15:29:07 -0500

Upon a hierarchy of mental capacity, superficially in the depths of pretended enlightenment, two primal forces compete within the scheme of interpersonal satiation. One is described as "predatory arrogance" and the other, its symbiotic counterpart, the carnal divergence for primal subservience. It is a devolving process. And so, by maladaptive intentional actions, for the purposes of pleasure versus pain, the former applies various schemes of control. From nation-state and corporate collusion, to lower realms of communal complicity, each manipulates the other for mutual benefit. Materiality by gain compared to risk, and gluttonous consumption to feed the anti-thinking of thought and the bloated state of devolving physicality, work to ensure the debasing perpetuity of entire human processes. Over time, as some two hundred thousand years have come and gone, where humans are concerned not much has changed. Planetary civilization, or the presumption of a civilized species, stagnates and invites eventual demise. Socio-economic disparity looms decidedly gloomier, as societal infrastructures decay, culture devolves, and intellectual advancement finds scorn.

A New Divisive Social Agenda

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 07:53:41 -0500

Here are some examples of how "messages of mass destruction" are used to deliberately introduce a divisive narrative into the lives of American families. It doesn't matter whether its racism, sexism or politics. The most respected and revered (i.e. actors, authors, journalists, non-profit organizations, politicians, publishers, TV & Film producers, etc.) are undermining the unity of American society from within.

Our Pitiable Condition

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 09:08:42 -0500

A lot is wrong with our system! If there are things we must hold responsible, Religion (Christianity) must be one. Pre-Christianity era, we had good ideals. People recognized uniqueness of souls: acknowledging the place of nature gifts and recognizing the place of great speakers, Solution-makers, critical thinkers, counselors etc.

The Universal Spirit and Why There Is No Time in Space

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 20:16:37 -0500

Time in our sense of the word exists only on earth. It is relevant to the increments of the earth's cycle around the sun and, therefore, it is irrelevant in space. The question then becomes by what measure would there be time in space?

Nigerian Federalism: The Quest for New Questions and New Methodologies

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 13:55:17 -0500

Let me commence by deeply appreciating Ambassador Sunday Thomas Dongoyaro, the brain behind the African Policy Research Institute (APRI). Initiatives like this complement the genuine efforts of all right thinking Nigerians to contribute to the nation building effort without which Nigeria can never hope to stand on its feet as a great nation. I am truly excited about APRI because its vision and mission intersects those of the Ibadan School of Government and Public Policy (ISGPP). The ISGPP is on its part is motivated by the mandate to make the Nigeria government work better than it is currently doing in terms of democracy and development through consistent policy dialogues and executive education.

Kim Jong-Un Vs The World: The Nuclear War That Will Never Happen

Sun, 11 Jun 2017 09:26:39 -0500

Here's the explanation why a nuclear war with North Korea, a global financial collapse, a global disease pandemic or World War III with Russia or China will never happen. First let me repeat, "these events will never happen." Seriously - stop wasting time listening to the circus of "fear mongers." These "Ring Masters" are the philosophical religious zealots and financial gurus in the mainstream media and alternative media that create mass media-hype and strategically suppress the truth.

What the Establishment & Media Are Trying to Make Us Forget by Blaming the Russians for Trump's Win

Thu, 08 Jun 2017 08:01:20 -0500

Going into our last election, a majority of US citizens were, and still are, fed up with Establishment Government. The only two anti-establishment candidates were Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump. The Democratic Establishment didn't see the writing on the wall and worked hard to eliminate Bernie: his agenda was not theirs. The Republican Establishment wasn't so lucky: they were stuck with Trump. Trump is not the product of Russian hacking, he is a symptom of our governments failure to give its citizens their due. The greedy and conniving have taken control, the people know it and want a change.

Wed, 07 Jun 2017 06:32:33 -0500

To see what a strange and ugly world our planet has become one has to look no further than what man is doing to it. Not only is he destroying the forests and oceans but all life, and that includes people. Animals and plants are essential to human life just as air and water.

Dear America: We Can Do Better

Fri, 02 Jun 2017 09:16:16 -0500

I envision an America that champions clean water for all. I see, in my mind, legislation passing that prohibits any dangerous substances from being near precious water supplies. Man and beast alike have free access to clean, potable water as a right, not a privilege. Humans, with their dominion over the land, strive to make the environment healthy, and strive to make the habitats of their fellow beings safe, clean, and, above all, habitable. Plans to repair dying infrastructure that poisons the water our children drink would be put into place, and the rivers and oceans and seas would be purged of our toxic garbage.

Islam: The Elephant in America's Kitchen

Thu, 01 Jun 2017 20:24:09 -0500

We are surrounded by apologists for Islam in spite of evidence to the contrary. Islam is the elephant in America's kitchen and no one wants to say a word of truth about the ideology. As the elephant grows Sharia Law creeps in and the civilization Jihad progresses on plan. It is time we wake up and clear the kitchen before it is too late.

What Part of the Globe Do You Call Home?

Mon, 29 May 2017 20:30:19 -0500

Filling the need for you to have a peaceful life depends on a peaceful domicile or place of residence. Privacy is key to having a safe and peaceful home. Home is the way where we connect and attain peace and private conversations with our loved ones, and let our hair down to renew or recharge our hearts, thoughts, mind and brain. You home is your sanctuary, at least it should be. Whatever part of the globe houses you and your friends, pets or family is just as important as who you are as a person.

Be in-Tune With the Vast Opportunities That Are Ready for You in June

Mon, 29 May 2017 10:08:07 -0500

June marks the half-way point for the current year. It also enables us to plan, strategize, prepare and contemplate how effective we have been in implementing our goals from January- May, with new hope and more focus on what we want to bring forward in June. Focus on getting more in-tune with your internal way of self-reliance and introspective thinking, and how you process your faith. Everyone has to believe in himself and to rely on the trust and faith of their own ability to tune-in or be in-tune with the truth of their own skills, talents and contribution to society.

The Beautiful Ones Are Not Yet Born

Mon, 22 May 2017 10:16:15 -0500

When Ayi Kwei Armah published his first novel, "the beautyful ones are not yet born" in 1968, precisely 49 years ago majority of Nigerians alive today were not yet born. I use the above caption intentionally because the issues he addressed in that novel regarding post colonial Ghana under its first President, Kwame Nkrumah remain embarrassingly pertinent in most if not all of the 54 countries in Africa.What on earth would make a nation pick an 82-year old man as an Ambassador? Why would a frail 93-year old hold on to power in a nation of about 13 million people?

Lost in Translation: The African Spring

Mon, 22 May 2017 10:15:21 -0500

While Islam and the Arabic language were the unifying factors in the Arab Spring of 2011, it is imperative to note that the uprisings originated in Africa. It is also important to point out that the only three African countries--Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia--were the ones that witnessed legitimate regime changes: Hosni Mubarak of Egypt was overthrown, arrested, and imprisoned for life; Colonel Muammar Gaddafi of Libya was overthrown and killed, and Beni Ali of Tunisia was forced to resign and hand over power to the transitional government. In addition, the uprisings led to disastrous consequences: the release of jihadists and terrorists from Arab prisons created a strong force of terrorism operatives and escalated the disastrous refugee crisis in Africa and in the Middle East.

Jallikkattu - Not Sport, But Farce

Wed, 17 May 2017 09:43:50 -0500

Jallikkattu now becomes a hot potato topic in the country. After waging a legal war for almost a decade, the Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI) and Animal Welfare activists have won their case against "animal sports" such as Jallikkattu, Rekla (bullock-cart race) etc., involving bulls. A supreme Court bench comprising Justice KS Radhakrishnan and Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghose, in a landmark judgment on May 2014, banned Jallikkattu, Rekla and other such 'sports'. The Supreme Court also struck down the "Tamil Nadu Regulation of Jallikkattu Act (TNRJ Act) 2009". Subsequently, on June 22, the Madurai Bench of Madras High Court dismissed 18 petitions, pending from 2009, which sought permission to conduct Jallikkattu in the State in the light of Supreme Court's ban.
